ALL RECORDS BROKEN AT
Wl ANNUAL GRANGE PICNIC
Conservative Estimate Places Attend-
ance at 6000 for the Three Days.
Interest Divided Thursday Between Oratory of Congres
sional Candidates and the Awarding of Prizes
AFI records for attendance and for
general success were surpassed by the
seventh annual picnic and stock show
held last week in Lyle's prove, on
Union Flat, under the auspices of the
associated granges of Whitman county,
the capacity of the grounds for caring
for the great multitude being taxed to
the utmost during each of the three big
days, a conservative estimate being
that not less than 6000 were present
during that time.
As usual the strong feature (if the
show was the fine exhibit of livestock,
all classes, driving horses, draft
horses, mules, dairy and beef cattle,
aheeiJ and swine being filled, entries
coming from all over the county to
compete for the honor of winning and
for the valuable prizes offered by the
grange and by the business men of
Pullman, who were most liberal in
their support of the enterprise.
Dairy Cow Contest.
The dairy cow contest brought out
the largest number of contestants j
ever entered, forty-five cows, the pick
of Whitman county, making a lively
race for the title of premier milch cow
of the foremost agricultural counts of
the northwest. Prof. Whitney, of j
the State College, had charge of this
feature. The cows were milked on
the grounds Friday and Saturday, the j
milk weighed and the total butter fat
yielded for the given period decided
Georire Nelson of Cloverdale Farm
owned the cow which won the $12f>
prize. Her record for two milkings
was 47 1-2 pounds of milk, yielding
2.471 pounds of butter fat. fieri Mann
ing of Albion owns the cow which took
second prize, her record being 41 1-2
pounds of tnilk and 2.203 pounds of
butter fat. Mrs. Anna Jenkins of Col
fax owns the cow which won the third
prize, with 152 pounds of milk and
2.137 pounds of butter fat. The fourth
prize was won by a cow owned by
William Hoffman near Colfax, with 43
pounds of milk and 2.128 pounds of
butter fat. The fifth prize was awarded
to a cow of William Hogan, near Al
mota, which gave 48 pounds of milk,
the greatest flow of any of the cows
exhibited, but only yielded 2.071
pounds of butter fat.
Friday the politicians vied with the
humble cow and the lowly mule in
claiming the public eye and ear, four
aspirants for congressional honors be
ing present and on the program for a
"speech." The candidates were Sen
ator Bonne, of Whitman county ; Lee
Johnson, of Yakima county, and M.
E. Field of Chelan county, republican
candidates, and Wm. Goodyear of
Whitman county, democratic candidate.
All four went on record as favoring a
constitutional amendment providing
for the initiative and referendum, and
all were equally strong in favor of

SERMON BY REV. L P. SCHOOLING
Preached at Union Services of Metho-
Rev. L. P. Schooling, of the Chris
tian church of this city, last Sunday
addressed the union congregation of
Methodists and Disciples of Christ,
choosing for his subject, "The Twen
tieth Century Emphasis of the Trinity
in Religion." Epitomized somewhat,
hia sermon follows:
The Trinity in religion is composed |
of worship, faith, and ethics; or, in
other words, cult, creed, and conduct. '
The history of religion plainly shows
that in primitive times the emphasis
was placed upon cult. Religion was
almost exclusively cult.
Thus, at so late a period as the time
of the Hebrew religion, religion was
largely cult. Men did not hesitate to
deal in unethical, or immoral prac
tices, when their purposes wero bettor
served by such practice.
The Tribe of Dan, in seeking a per
manent location in Canaan, did not
scruple to rob Micah of his household
goods and his priest, in order that they
might more effectively worship their
The emphasis placed on creed has
brought little better results than the
emphasis placed on cult. For evidence
of this we need only turn to the Chris
tian centuries. Differences of a hair'B
breadth have many times been suffi
cient to convoke ecumenical could Is,

which became the. occasion for the
most corrupt political intrigues. The
purpose of creed were sought by cast

Creeds Will Not Save.
This tendency and its results have
| not passed away to this day ; eviiic no I
of which are seen in almost every lo
cality of our own time. Men are
seeking to save the world by their
■ creeds. Men do not scruple to do un
kind, unchristian filings, where the
creed of one can be hindered, and the
creed of the other furthered. A meet
ing starts in one church, and the other
churches of that locality proceed to
throw cold water on it; not bee;'
perhaps, they do not want to see
saved, but because thpy do not want to
see other creeds wir. more support
than their own. This spirit and this
epmhasis plainly fails to realize the
needs of society in this age.
