"'The Illinois league originated the

You will, from the above extracts
of their book, see that they have a
great system for collecting money, and
they openly declare that so far they
have secured over $50,000 by this meth

more, as shown by their own statement
on page 10. jn which Superintendent
Anderson says: 'We expect the fiscal
year ending May 1. with the subscrip
tions which must come for a legisla
tive fund, to show more than $23,0u0 in
cash, and we expect within two years
to be on a basis of $50,ooo a year, and
within three years more to he on a
basis of $75,000. We think it probable
that before long it will cost $100,000 to
run the work in this state.'
"At the bottom of page 5 he says:
'The situation in brief is simply that
it has taken everything we have been
able to raise to cover the expenses of

the Hagenbeck show the ceiiiral at
traction of the fair.
.Seeing the parade of the HagenbecJi
Trained Animal show passing through
our crowded streets, one would think
that the fairy talcs of his childhood
are being materialized, because Carl
Hagenbeck, who supplies the world's
shows with animals, certainly supplied
his own. Elephants. 27 in number.

iof natural history for which there Ls

acts for the show. A leopard, the

master Hagenbeck trainers.
Thirty cars in two trains will carry
the Hagenbeck show from town to
town and 12 of the finest and strong
est horses will pull the wagons of the
show from loading place to the show
grounds ' and back. The horses are
now being trained for the work with
the animal show. They have to be
taught many things before they are
ready for the service. Everybody
knows how frightened the average
horse gets when he sees or scents wil l
animals. The horse is led tip to the

compelled to stand there; he is fed
there till he finds out that the animal
will not hurt him. He has to get used

Pupils Given Food to Encourage
Attendance at School
ANNUAL THANK OFFERING
Of Woman's Foreign Missionary So
ciety Addressed by Miss
Last evening at the First M. E.
church the annual thank offering serv
ice of the Woman's Foreign Mission
ary society of the church was held.
Miss Marion Newton, one cf the in
structors at the Isabella Fhoburn col
lege at Lueknow, India, was present
and made the address of the evening.
Miss Newton gave a very interesting
talk on the work of the missions in
India, and told of the conditions in
that country. One of the most remark
able things mentioned was the method
employed to induce the pupils to at
tend the college. The Indian children
are never given enough food at their
home. At the end of each week the
pupils are given a handful of bran,
such as can be secured in this country
for about 2ft cents a bushel. They will
come when they can receive this food.
They eagerly eat the bran. As soon as
they have attended school long enough
to have acquired a desire for education
the bran distribution is discontinued.
Miss Newton's statements with re
gard to the wages and conditions of
life among the natives of India seem -incredulous.
The wages of an average
workman are $1.50 a month. One meal
a day is tne ordinary allowance, ine
foid is mainly rice, and occasionally
bran and other vegetable food.
What the missionaries who are
working there receive yearly is so
small that very few workmen in this
country receive as little in one month.
The ministers are paid a year.
Ml In Collection.
Following the address the thank of
fering was taken, and about col
lected. This sum will go to the fund
for the Crandon Hall, for girls, at
Rome, Italy. The school which Miss
Newton represents Is named for the
daughter of Bishop Proburn.
One of the features of the meeting
last evening was the rendering of the
processional, "The Holy City, by the .
choir of 25 voices. The choir sang the .
first verse from the Sunday school
room in the rear, marching to the choir
lo$t. The King's Heralds, a children's
organization of the church, assisted,
and preceded the choir in the proces
sional. A soprano solo was rendered by Mrs.
I.ucy Olsen, and a duet. "In the Cross
of Christ I Clory," by Miss Wood and
The services at the inciting of the
Epworth League last evening were par-
tieularly interesting. The meeting was
largely attended. The subject was
"Home Life," and helpful talks wen;
made by the leader. Mr. Lavender,
Miss Wood and Miss Henderson. Itev.
Chamberlain, president of the McKen
droe college, the oldest Methodist
school in the world, was present and
made a short address.

Many Unable to Gain Admittance
Hear Rev. Lockhart Nine
Several hundred people were unable
to gain admission to the evangelistic
service at Memorial Christian churcn
last night. The house was crowded to
its limit before the evangelists and the
great chorus came upon the platform.
After a rousing song service by
Singing Evangelist J. V. Oarmong.
Evangelist lxukhart spoke on the sub
ject. "Why I Am a Christian and a
Christian Only." The preacher said:
"I am a christian only because then
is no divine authority for being any
thing else. The disciples were lirst
called christians at Antioch. and there
is no other name given under heaven
among men whereby we can be saved.
I'm a christian only because Christ has
honored nie by giving me the privilege
of wearing His name, and 1 don't want
to be disloyal to Him by wearing a sec
tarian name. You say. What's in a
name? There is much in a name. A
man stands for character. What do
the names Livingstone, Carey, Florence
Nightingale, Cromwell, and -Lincoln
Hand for? They stand for great char
acters and great lives. The bible pays
jit:-s tribute of respeet to names. Abram's
name w.-.s changed to Abraham, Jacob's
name was changed to Israel, Saul's
name was changed to Paul. Simon's
nanio was changed to refer and why?
Hertiuse a name indicates character.
"I'm a christian only because the
bible only makes christians only, and
I have no guide but the bible.
"I'm a christian only because the
name is a union name, and I'm plead
ing for the union of a'.l christians.
"I'm a christian because my name
indicates my creed. I have no creed
but the Christ, and therefore Pm a
christian only. No book but the bible;
no plea but the gospel; no creed but
the Christ; no name but the divine
