THE WEALTH MAKERn WILL FIGHT FOR FOOD Several Women and Two Little Girl Are Injured la the Battle tor Provision to guttata Life New Yokk, Nov. 21. There wa a scene toilay at the hotneof the relief committee of striking cloak makers that will not oou be forgotten by those who witness d it. This place is a small store with a narrow door at 112 Ludlow street. Here tofore the committee has beeu giving out nothing but rye bread and stale bologna sausages, but yesterday it was announc ed that every Wednesday and Saturday hereafter the committee would give out groceries to those holding relief tickets nd who have families who are really in a destitute coudition. The place is under charge of George W. Jones, a cutter by trade, who thoroughly ouderatands these people and knowsj consequently, how to deal with them. Long before the doors opened today an excited multitude of men, women and children, most of them bearing boxes and basket, blocked the east aide of Ludlow street for more than a block about 112. The near-by grocers whose entrances were choked by the crowd looked daggers at the poor wretches standing almost shoeless in the mud with the rain pouring down upon their unprotected heads ana shoulders. It was a pitiable sight. When the door finally opened at 9 o' clock there was a rush that completely upset all of Mr. Jones' plans and he was perfectly helpless iu trying to restrain the seething, steamiug mass of hysterical humanity, who made a concerted rush for the interior of the place. Those who arrived first, however, fared badly, for they were torced up against the rude counter placed across the store by pres sure of the mob behind, until their breath was all but crushed out of them. There were loud screams of pain, when, luckily for the injured ones, the counter ;gave way with a crash and at least fifty people were precipitated to the floor and there mingled with bread, potatoes, her ring and sugar, lu the wild scramble which immediately took place to secure the coveted food the animal in the hu man being came to the surface. Each struggler for food seemed for a moment to forget its presence on thefloorandhad only in mind the fearful possibility that his or her nearest neighbor would secure it first, and almost by common instinct each of the hulf-starved wretches turned .fiercely upon the other and ageneral riot iollowed. Then Mr. Jones and his lieutenants charged on the invading army and after some hard uage succeeded in driving them back and restoring order. Several women and two little g.rls were more or less injured, but none seriously. The other women and children made the air ring with their cries of fright. When the distribution began everyone holding a .yellow ticket was supplied with two quarts of potatoes, one pound of loaf .sugar, one quarter pound of coffee, four tlierrings in brine, and one or two loaves. A meeting of the strikers was held this evening at Walhalla hall, at which Mr. Barondess presided. There was no change in the situation, aud the com mittee reported everything quiet The Christian Life To begin a Christian life id to quit liv ing for self and to begin living forotbers. It is to take up the cross, which is th measure of sacrifice and suffering re quired in entering fully into the Christian life. To follow Christ is nothing less than to bear this cross daily. The cross is the emblem of the suffering aud sacrifice in volved in the redemption of the world The sufferings and sacrifice of Chris while on earth were not all that is re quired iu the salvation of the world Every man who becomes a Christian be comes a member of the body of Christ "If one member of this body suffers th whole body suffers with it" Christ be ing the head -of this body, of course suffer with every member, feels every pain and tantes every sorrow which is experienced by every member of the body. Paul in a letter to his fellow Christians at Colosae, said: "I rejoice in my suffer ings for you, and till up that which it behind of the afflictions of Christ in mj flesh for his body's sake, which is the church." This body, the church, em braces all the saved, and fills up to its fullness the "cup of suffering" which is necessary to complete the work of atone ment and redeem the world. Paul felt that to save the world, so much suffering and sacrifice was necessary, and hi. seemed to be filled with an ambition to drink more of the cup and make more o.' the sacrifice than any other member oi the body. . Christ is always omnipresent in this body, every member is crucified with him, every member is filled with his spirit and has his mind, every, member has fellow-ship with bin suffering and wirb the afflictions that afflict every othei member of the body. 'The members of this body are harmoni ous. There is no competition between them; they co-operate and serve each other completely, just as the hands and feet and different members of the natural body serve each other. They bear one another's burdens and so fulfill the will of the head of the body which is Christ. Such a church is thelightandonly Savior of the world. There is no room for con troversy. The only question is how to realize such a visible church. Is it possi ble under our system of competition? Is there any room and chance under present industrial conditions to set up such a church and cive liberty to mani fest itself. Cedar Rapids Republican. NEURALGIA cared by Dr. Miles' Pain Pills.

When the po lice commissioners met to-day two resolutions were offered by Commis sioner Murray, one providing for the release from suspension of Captain Creeden and the other called for a conference between the police board and Chairman Lexow of the senate committee concerning Creed en's case and other matters. Commissioner Sheehan cast the only vote against the first resolution, the second being carried unanimously, v Ttin lnr!e Lies Editor Wealth Maueiw: When Simon Peter denied being even acquainted with Jesu, ufter being his student for years, listening to his just and gentle teaching. Christ did not send swift death to him. It was only a look that sent poor Peter out to weep bitterly until the resurrection morn, when he sent the tender-of-heart women to tell "my disciples and Peter that I am arisen." 0 what a sweet pardon to be again considered a disciple of the mas ter, and he did outrun the rest, never agaiu would he consider personal safety more than the truth. When Ananias and Sapphira his wife sold their worldly possessions and fear ing that the method of Christ's disciples "having all things common" might prove a failure, kept back a part aud de nied the fact and instant death followed each denial, why was there no compas sionate pardou for them? Because their lying was against the Holy Ghost, the mother side of God's nature, the Life, Truth and Love principle about to estab lish on earth a true family of God, the mother n.iturc presiding over and lead, ing mankind to see that the family of one father must know only oue heart one soul's interest, as the heart and soul in. terest of all; that not a necessary need for any oue go uusupplied. And it was this lie of purely self interest ugainst the common interest, and ultimate establish ment of God's will done upon earth as in heaven, that could not be pardoned, but must die. To be in harmony with God is heaven iu life now, and not in some far away locality.' Jesus' obedience brought down the loving dove and approval of God, and is descending again over heads and hearts ready to obey for the sake of, righteousness covering the earth as a garment. Thine for humanity's utmost good, R. Agnes C. The Proposed Currency Scheme The weakness of the president's plan is not that it would not greatly increase the volume of ths circulating medium of the country, for it would. It is radically wroug because it delivers over to a single privileged class, the bankers, the enor mous profit ou this addition to the circu lating medium, and, furthermore, be cause it leaves the currency still upon the insufficient single-gold basis. In the ulti mate under the president's plan all this vast addition to the nation's currency would be redeemable in gold, and bankers would still have it in their power to de mand a bigger gold reserve und to set in motion "that endless chain constantly depletiug the treasury gold and never neiir a final rest" which the president de plores in his message.

Irrigated Farm Lands -IN THE- FERTILE SAll LOIS VALLEY, COLORADO. THHE SAN LDIS VALLEY, COLORADO, is a stretch of level plain about a large the State of Connecticut, lying between surrounding ranM of lofty mountains and watered by the Rio Grande Rirer and score or more of small tributary streams. It was the bottom of great sea, whose de posits hare made a fertile soil on an average more than ten feet deep. Ths mountains are covered with great deposits of snow, which melt and foraisa ths irrigating canals with water for the farmers' crops. The Climate is Unrivaled. Almost perpetual sunshine, and the elevation of about 7,000 fest dispels all malaria, nor are such pests as chinch bugs, weevil, etc, found then. FLOwnie artesian wells are secured at a depth, on an average, of about 100 feet, aad at a cost of about f 25.00 each. Such is the flow that they an being utilised for irrigating the yards, garden and vegetable crops. - The pressure) is sufficient to carry ths water, which is pure, ail through the farmers' dwellings. Irrigation. Already several thousand miles of large and small irrigating canals bars been built and several hundred thousand acres of lands mads available for farming operations. Irrigation is an insurance against failure of crops, because sue cess is a question only of the proper application of water to them. The loss of a single corn or wheat crop in Nebraska, for instance, would more than equal ths cost of irrigating canals to cover the entire state, so important is the cer tainty of a full crop return to any agricultural state. The San Luis Valley will grow Spring wheat oats, barley, peas, heps, beans, potatoes, vegetables ana all kinds of small fruits and many of the hardier varieties cf applss, x pears and all kinds cf ch:rrl:3. In the yield of all these products it has hetkb been surpassed bt amy other BECT1021 ON THE CONTINENT. Forty Acres Enough Land. Forty acres is enough land for the farmer of ordinary means and help. Be sides the certainty of return, the yield, under the conditions of proper irriga tion, will average far more than the 160-acre farms in the Mississippi and Missouri Valleys, and the outlay for machinery, farming stock, purchase money, taxes, etc., are proportionately less. There are a hundred thousand acres of such lands located in the very heart of the San Luis Valley, all within six miles of the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, convenient markets and shipping statious, for sale at $15.00 per acre. Most of these lands are fenced and have been under cultivation and in many instances have wells and soma buildings, everything ready to proceed at once to begin farming. A small cash payment only is required where the purchaser immediately occupies ths premises, and long time at seven per cent, interest is granted for the deferred payments. A Specially Low Homeseekers Bate will be made you, your family and friends. Should you settle on these lands the amount you paid for railroad fare will be credited to you on your pay ments; and remember the land is perfectly and thoroughly irbioated, and the land and perpetuel water rights are sold you for less than other sec tions ask for simply the water rights without ths land.
