Most people in the three cities will call

also to promote morality and d.-cency In

Since that time the theft of a Diven
port horse and of another at Burlington
have been clearly traced to him, but the
owners and the ( fficers have always been
just too far tehind bun to do more than

in front of the sanctuary. He was here
about the first days of November. He
had run a horsi and buggy to Burlington
and soiri them there, and going on one of
his arms' imed hurrahs with the pro
ceeds of the transaction. After hsnging
around there as long as he could get
credit he stole a $125 horse from one
man a- d a good road cart and harness
from another, and a few days later came
through there, stopping long enough to
Bee one of the women whom he used t
be on familiar terms wiih, and gring on

There are men after him all over the
states of Iowa and Illinois. He had been
a horse thief before he came to this city,

again as soon as he got out of it. Hie
cperations were rather extensive. His
game was to steal a horse and after gel
ting out of the vicinity where it waa
owned to sell it, have a big drunk, and
then go on his way with another horse.
He always took a conveyance at the same
time. He ran a large number of animals
into Chicago in this way, there bing
three of them there at one time. The
police there learned that he had brought
them there and sold tbem, but where he
had gone to or where be had got the
horsee they did not learn.
In addition to these few j.ibs he did
unnumbered others of like kind all over
this part of the country. He is known
to have run oS a number of animala on
the other side of the river, and there have
been good proofs of bis connection with
numerous cases of the same sort through

The bible lecture series at the Y. M.
C. A. rooms which had been interrupted
for a month by tbe union meetings, was
again Ukea np on yesterday afteraoos).
Rev. J. II. Kerr giving his second lectors
in the seriev The subject waa ths "Uslty
Relations of tbe Old Testament Books,"
and the lecture was devoted to a consul-
oration of tbe bhtorical bsoks. Tkese
cover tbe time of the uniting of the old
testament, and Into them fit tbe poetical
aod prophetical. Rev. Kerr took np lbs
bxksin order beginning withG jneaia and
speaking briefly regarding tba name aad
psrlod of time covered by ea?h. lis
sketched tbe historical contents of each,
showing how one supplemented and added
to the the other, making a chain on
broken from Adam to the return froes
The hlttorial contents shows tbe prep
aration of the world for the appearand
of the Messiah, who came in the fullness of
time, showing tbe need of mankind for
tbe Saviour aod tbe carry log oat of
God's purpose in the calling and preser
vation of Israel through whom Christ
came. Another evidence of nnity of tbe
old testament books is ia tba fact that
together and individually they form ia
their subject matter tbe basis for the new
testament. Tbe new would be unintellig
ible except for tbe old aod It rests Its
truth on beings fulfillment and unfold
ing of tbe old testament. Still aoother
ground for unity is that each separate
book teaches some troth that man meet
learn. Many interesting poiau were
brougbt out ia tbe lecture showing meet)
careful preparation, and familiarity with
the snbiect. Tbe lecture waa followad
by tbe u-ual time for questions. Rev.
Kerr lectures on tbe new testament next
Sunday. He will devote tbe time panic,
ulary to tbe epistles, omitting tba gospels
which will be tbe subject of another lec
ture later in the series
