In an address delivered at Manhattan yesterday, as a part of the Elk memor ial exercises in that city, Justice Henry F, Mason took as his text the variant sentiments regarding the question of immortality as expressed by the great writers whose thoughts have been pre served In prose and verse, and drew the lesson that to some extent - the con flicting opinions were the result of a difference in mental attitude; and that this difference, more apparent than real frequently depended upon the reader's interpretation of the . language em ployed. t . . ; The same words may have a different meaning to different authors, and may give to one reader a different impres sion irom inai given-to anoiaer. x ne effusive man expresses his good will by profuse cordiality., The reticent roan may mean as much by his grudging monosyllables. One clergyman defines his task as saving human souls; an other as upbuilding- human character; and perhaps they mean essentially the same thing. : While the Elk order Is not a religious body. Judge Mason emphasized the point that its creed contains many of the principles of brotherhood and fra ternity upon which every religious sect Is founded. The Elk is not censorious. He concedes to every man the right of opinion. He is, tolerant. Perhaps a better word than "toleration" to ex press this Elk idea is "Charity," used In its broader sense as descriptive of a frame of mind. "But -by constant use,' said Judge Mason, "we have so associated charity with the relief of distress the giving of alma, that this has become its pri mary meaning. This consideration led the revisers of the New Testament to change the time-hallowed verse: 'And now abideth Faith. Hope and Charity, these three; but the greatest of these Is Charity,' and to substitute for It, 'And now abideth Faith, Hope and Love, these three; but the greatest of these is Love.' I venture the prediction that this new version will not endure. Properly understood the word love is entirely appropriate. But it, likewise, by force of custom, carries a special meaning. It has a wide diversity of uses, but it suggests sentiment, If not sentimentality. It is not well suited to the practical commonplaces of every day life. - , "We don't need to love a man, in the sense In which the word is ordinarily used, in order to acknowledge that he has the same right to his opinions that we have to ours. Whatever you may call that spirit, it Is to be found here in the ritual of the order. It Is not a religion or a substitute for a religion, but it has a Just a place In every code which attempts to define the duties of men toward one another. "The philosophy of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is essen tially practical. It seeks to deal with the things of this world. It declines to view our life here as of little con sequence or as a vale of tears. It realizes that there need be no more beatlnc heaven than this world might be if all conformed to the teachings of the founder of Christianity; - .that no perdition could be more desolute than this world if human nature were al ways at its worst. "The spirit of the Elks order is op timistic. It looks on the bright side. It seeks the lessons of life not In the remote days of some far-off, land. It reads the wisdom . and . goodness and mercy of an all-powerful Father, - not merely In miracles wrought in ancient times, but In every opening flower, in every returning springtime, . in every manifestations of the divine law that governs the universe. It believes that the best preparation for a world to come Is a constant striving to make this world brighter, better and happier." si::oxs ins hearers Vial tine Preacher Gives St. Louis Con.

He was playing low ball with Arthur Jackson, a profes sional, against C. Kemp and Frank Moore, two of the best amateur play ers of the club.

Dec 8. Three games for the 1914 football schedule, which is now in the making, are practically certain for the University of Nebras ka. These contests are with Minne sota at Minneapolis; Iowa at Iowa City and Ames at Lincodn. The. re port prevails that one other big West ern eleven is to be met away from, home. i The HaskeU Indians will be dropped from the Cornhusker sched ule for the coming year. There is nothing for the Nebraskans to gain by beating the Indiana.-and .there is everything to lose. The schedule thus demands that some big games at home be played and it Is this to which Coach Stiehm is directing his atten tion. -. j f.-- f.. - Kansas is the only other school for the 1913 schedule to be disposed of for 1914. and what will be done with the Jayhawkers is hot known.-;. It may be that the date for the contest for the Kansas game will be shoved up earlier in the season or the Kan sans may be dropped entirely. v SUGGEST OWENS AS COACH.

Called Manager's Daughter Victoria Spirit of Victory. Lawrence, Dec 8. Victoria- the spirit of victory was the name which the members of the HaskeU Indian football team gave to the month-old daughter of Mr . and Mrs. A. M. Venne. It was a hard task for the Indians to find a suitable name for the baby and they almost gave up in despair, but spurred on by the honor they had won and suggestions from the Indian co-eds at the institute, the men chose the name "Victoria." . FootbaU teams seldom name babies, but in this Instance Manager Venne thought that the men were entitled to the privilege and put his rights as the father aside. - - : On Nov. 8 when the HaskeU team was in Omaha playing Creighton col lege the players were told that they could name the baby. . In the inter mission of the 'game a panting mes senger came with a telegram for Mr. Venne, manager of the Indian team, to the effect that an eight-pound baby girl had Just been born to Mrs. Venne at Lawrence, and that both mother and baby were well. , The Indians were sitting In council of war on the sidelines of Creighton field when Mr. Venne opened the tele gram. He read it to them and -then exclaimed: "Boys, If you w-u win this game IU let you name my baby girl. Will yon do it?" ' The players shouted their answer and went into the game with a ven geance in the second half, winning- by a 7 to 0 score and gaining the priv ilege of naming little Miss Venne.
