A real, practical Christianity Is being practiced by the Men's BibU
class of thfa First Church of Christ in Akron, O. The class, started a
few mentha ao, outgrew Its quarters In the church, then rented a theater
for Its Sunday morning meetings. Rev. George Darsle is its teach: r.
Aaron Rubright Its president, and Fred Leu Its hustling young pre-
agent. Bible lessons are taught bystereoptican and motion pictures,
with a general discission between teacher ar.d class. A free employ,

POLICE ARE INSTRUCTED
Will See to It That Paths Are Shov
eled or Property Owners
Will Be Arrested.
Mayor Schriver Issued an ultimatum
this morning; that la going to make
property owners and renters of prop
erty as well sit up and take notice
when it comes to clearing sidewalks of
the snow. There Is a city ordinance
which says.that owners of property and
lessees of property must clear their
walks of snow before noon after the
snow has fallen. There is no hemming
or hawing in the ordinance. It is
straight off the bat, and hereafter it is
to be enforced, says the mayor. Ac
cordingly, he has instructed the police
to notify any one whose walk is not
cleared of snow to get busy at once or
suffer the penalty provided in the ord
inance. Just because the ordinance
has not been enforced before is no sign
that it win not be enforced hereafter.
HART'S MEN BUSY.
Commissioner Hart has several men
from the health department busy clear
ing the walks, and others are at work
clearing away the snow and ice from
around catch basins.

A PARADISE FOR
These are opening days at the Bee
Hive, Davenport. The weather con
ditions on the outside world would
not indicate it, but when once a per
son gains the interior of this store
they find an entirely different atmos
phere. They are' brought into con
tact with such a splendid and pleas
ing showing of new spring suits,
coats, dresses, waists, skirts and mil
linery that they quickly forget
weather conditions and have their
minds absorbed into another entirely
different Bubject, one so close to the
heart of every woman-artistic femi
nine wearing apparel.
At the Bee Hive women for once
meet their heart s content. For
months past the efforts of the man
agement have been directed towards
securing fashion's newest and best
ideas in women's and misses' spring
wearing apparel. They have visited
all the large eastern markets and
have purchased to the best advan
tage. This is amply proven by an
inspection of their stock.
Popular prized goods have always
been a feature at the Bee Hive and
the present showing is no exception
to this rule. The firm declares the
stock now on hand to be the largest
and best assorted in the history of
the Bee Hive. The leading manu
facturers of the world have contribu
ted to it.
The Bee Hive does not specialize
on fancy goods at fancy- prices, but
they .do insist that they give the best
possible values at moderate prices.
They also feel Justified in claiming
that their stock of such goods will
compare favorably with that of any
other store in the entire west
