Sermons Preached in Ho(!i Eng

tion of the Event.
Sunday was a gala day fur the
Lutherans (if Scott (Nullity. A l;iy
long desired l.y that faithful little
band of Lutherans. It was tho !ay
of tin; dedication i f their new home
of worship. Their old church building
which was known far and near as
the "Hock Church" hail served its
purpose 1.") years, but lone ago was
not capable of holding the members
of the congregation. So last year in
June the work of tearing down the
old building was begun and shortly
after the foundation was laid for
u new church building in which the
materials of the old Hock Church
were used, lne contractor ior niCj
new church was Mr. A. W. Brandes of
this city. The building which is of j
brick, with its lofty tower, its chime
of bells, its tower clock, standing on
an elevation in the eastern part of
the town of Illruo, commands the
attention of all who upproach the
town and is nn ornament to the whole
section. The dedicatory exercises
were as follows: After a short ad
dress and song, at the entrance of
the school house, where the congre
gation worshipped, during the build
ing of the church, the vast assem
blage headed by the building commit
tee the scholars the visiting minis
ters, went to the new church where,
after the -opening of the doors by
the pastor the services were held
consisting of tinging by the congre
gation choir and the scholars. Rev.
I. Wengcr of l'rohna, Mo., preached
nn eloquent sermon, set tie.;: forth the
reasons for rejoicing at the dedica
tion of a new Lutheran church. At
2 p. m. Hev. W. Lniigclutinig of
Jackson, Mo., preached in the Eng
lish language showing that in the
Lutheran church, Christ i all in all.
At. 7:30 service.-- were again held in
the English language by the Hev.
I'rof. (Ira 'brier of Concordia Seminary
St. Louis, Mo., At ell of these
services tin1 atti ndaiice was Mich
that the church could not bejjii to
hold nil of tie worshippers. To sec
the ot) automobiles and hundreds of
other vehicles crowded around the
church was a sight not smci to !
Visitors were in attendance from
Perry County from Cape Girardeau,
Jackson, Hanover, Egypt Mills, Gor
donville, !t:u! other places. The visit
ing ministers were the Kevs. A. M.
Lohman, Egypt Mills; A. Hcrnthal,
Hanover; W. G. Langehennig, Jack
son; F. Wcnger, Fn.hiia and A. W ilder
Cape Ciirardeaii. Hut one thing
marred the pleasures of the day,
namely the failure of the organ build
er to keep his promise to have the
new !?l,li(H) pipe organ installed for
the dedicatory services. If the organ
builder docs not again disappoint the
congregation, the organ will be dedi

TOWN WITH ONE INHABITANT
Once Thriving Municipality It Fully
Equipped, but Only One Set
Silver City, NTMTAprll 28. A full
fledged town with but a single Inhabi
tant that ia the present status of tho
once thriving municipality of Sylvan
ite. It Krew like magic a few years
ago, when gold was reported In the
hills round about, and It thrived for
several months before stories of the
mineral deposits proved to be princi
pally myths. Many of the inhabitants
continued to hold on even after the
truth was known, but gradually they
began to puck up and depart for more
There is left In Sylvanlte a number
of business houses, places where sa
loons were operated, a postoffice that
has no worries because ot tho parcel
post, a jail without a jailer and mov
ing picture theater without a machine,
an operator or an audience. It Is the
biggest modern town of the country
that boasts of so small a population
and probably it Is yie most lonesome
municipality In the world.
John Corbctt, the original settler on
the townslte of Sylvanlte, still is a
resident there. He declares that heisj
mayor, police Judge, chief of police'
and any other official that any good- .

Washington, Apr.l J.v The strong
est diplomatic combination In the his
to ' of this country U trying .o t.riiis:
order out ot chaos lu Mexico. Virtu
ally Hll LiUin-Autrlea was united to
force an agreement which would re
store order south of the H!o liramle,

the central figure.

hours will depend whether the army
of the United States will occupy Mex

will be ordered to bring their war

veston and the general mobilization
on the border be called off.
Despite the apparently irreconcil
able difficulties between the 1 nlted
States and Mexico, President Wilson
and his secretary of state were box
ful. They profess to believe that
Huerta, having agreed with the Unit
ea biaiea 10 accept uie gouu ou.cca ui .
the "A. B. C." confederacy of nations,
he indicates that he Is looking for a 1
peaceful way out of the Mtuallon.
Differences Very Great.
While officially there has been no
suggestion from either elde regarding
its position, but only an acceptance of
a proposal to mediate, the chasm be
tween the two administrations is best
fdiown by a simple statement of the
unofficial conditions known to have
been laid down.
President Wilson demands that in
anv Plan of settlement Huerta must
go, constitutional government be re-1
stored in Mexico, and full apology .
made for outrages against the honor
of the l'n led States. j
Huerta demands that the United
Statts forces be withdrawu from Mex- j
lean territory, that the revolutionists '
be Ignored In any negotiations miles-i '
they accept the terms of his general j
proclamation of amnesty, and that he
be recognized as tho provisional presl- j
dent of Mexico. i
Just how these demands are to be I
reconciled and from them a plau
worked out which will bo acceptable

know. Kven the n rn sentiitlves of,
