FOR SPECIFIC WORK
Processes of Development of Race
Discussed by Rabbi W. H.
Dr. W. H. Fineshriber of Temple
Emanuel. Davenport, delivered an
address last evening at Broadway
Presbyterian church on the subject,
"The Processes by Which the Chil
dren of Israel Were Developed as
the Chosen People of God." The
speaker gave a general review of the
history of the Israelites and told of
Gods dealings with them through
the ages. He stated that the main
process of development was brought
about by the suffering which the peo
ple endured. He 6aid that as every
great man has suffered before he has
become great, eo did the children of
Israel, and it was through suffering
that their real power and function
was developed. The people were not
chosen of God simply because they
were his favorites, but to carry out
some specific work. The Greeks were
chosen to carry out and give to the
world the work of art, while the Ro
mans furnished a code of laws. The
Israelites were chosen for the reve
lation of God's will or as light bear
ers to give to the world religion.
The address in its entirety was an
eloquent and true treatise of the sub
ject. There was a large audience of
people present.- Dr. Fineshriber ex
pressed to the nfembers of the men's
class under whose auspices the ad
dress" was given, appreciation for
courtesy extended, which showed
amity and peace among the races.

At Y. M. C. A.
The boys of the B. G. M. heard
the conclusion of the prodigal son
story yesterday afternoon when Rev.
J. L. Vance gave his third talk on
the theme. "Coming Home." These
three talks on the old story have been
heard by a number of boys, and Mr.
Vance has put into his addresses
such work as to make the story alive
and full of meaning to those who
have heard him. Yesterday, after
describing the way the young man
in the parable got home, and made
up ;with the family, Mr. Vance an
nounced that he was going to give
the boys a "made-up" scripture text
to remember. The text he gave was
"Blessed is the man who never has
to come back." The idea held out
in the talk was that if a boy never
gets away from home and from the
right, he will not have to repent of
his wrongdoing and come back home
in disgrace. Miss Florence Mc
Combs favored the boys with a piano
solo. Next Sunday the boys will ob
serve Memorial day with appropriate
music and addresses. The young
men's bible class will in.-ct this even

night from Tuesday to Monday. The
