George Creel finds in the writings of Dr Stanley Hall a tre
mendous poignant appeal which promises to relegate many fixed
ideas of religion and supplant them with a closer communing with
the yearnings of the soul
Dr Hall says Mr Creel after questioning 14000 Sunday I
school children has found that tho favorite juvenile characters are 1
found in the Old Testament and that Jesus is regarded as somewhat
spooky and almost entirely robbed of the appeal that His love
and gentleness should naturally make to little ones What crime
this is 1 His likeness conceived by ascetics years after the crucifix
ion has contributed to this sense of detachment and ministers in
order to accentuate faith have aided in the work of establishing
Christ as weak pallid and entirely spiritual Yet we know that He
was a carpenter until thirty years of age and that thd trade in that
day called for strength and size How much better then as Dr
Hall observes to follow this plain indication and believe Jeris a
I splendid commanding figure beautiful and attractive in the posses
sion of every vigor and all virility 1
Instead of keeping eyes fixed on the next world as the ec
I clesiasts persist Christ was esentially human and let no day go by
J without strildng boldly against some injustice or inequality He at
tacked predatory business driving the money changers out of the
1 temple declared against the corruptions and oppressions of church
and state and in every utterance breathed belief in the true democ
racy that knows no privileged class In ignorance and poverty He
saw the source of sin and hold to freedom in this world as prepara
tion for the next Lot the preachers come closer to Christ and the
people will come closer to religion
This is a growing irreligious ago and some change must come
over the churches or the people if tho millions outside all religions
I are to be reclaimed Perhaps Rev Hall has correctly diagnosed the
t trouble Those not of any religion must be appealed to by reason
and the presenting of great exemplars who having the same trials
j and tribulations to be met with in lifes struggle today have been
equal to their tasks and have triumphed not by an inborn superior
I ity but through courage selfdenial or the wonderful power of faith
j George J Kelly in his travels through northwest Canada was
j impressed with the railroad development and he brought back with
t him several maps which at a glance might be mistaken for maps of
t I the railroads of tho United
i States so numerous are the markings of
1 railroad development
I I Mr Kelly went north from Ogden to Great Falls Montana and
I I crossed the boundary to Lethbridge continuing north to Calgary
1 and on to Edmonton from which point he drove by team 76 miles
J still further north into tho country drained by the Saskatchewan
a navigable stream
I i That far northern country is one of great possibilities for the
man of constitution who is to be
willing a pioneer and endure the
hardships incident to the making of a new empire The lands are
fertile and range cattle grow sleek
In winter the mercury slides down to 30

Mr Kelly found the Canadians
a most progressive people and
l in some things further advanced
f than the Americans Of this he
f was in a minor way impressed when
he asked the time of day and

and Ogdons chancxr to lash Itself to
second place nn the league ladder

from Snit Lake City swooped clown
upon the local players and carried off
Ogdens scalp by a scoro of G to 4
They are now resting jubilantly on
tho second rung of tho Udder while
the Lobsters have backed down to
third position
The game broke away with a dash
the dark ones making a trio of cir i
cles on their score sheet without In
terjections Taylor the first Ogden
man up was given his base on wild
flings Wessler bit lightly yet safe
and hold down first A safe wallop
by Ramshaw brought In Taylor and
left Wcssler perched on third Glm

stick and drove a long ono to rlghL
Ilamshaw and Wossler scored and
Dad reached third This finished Og

savages closed In their lInes and the
next three batten woro slaughtered
without a chance at life
The Occidentals opened tho second
Inning with a threebase hit to left
by Langley who came homo when
the man following him hit a fumbler
to third Tho third man up went to
first on a passed third strike but
vas put out when he attempted to
steal second Robinson dropped one
In a desolate corner of right field
bringing in a score from third Cans
the heavyweight coal comploxlonol
right fielder wafted the air but
Mooney of more lanky proportions
drove one along the ground to right
and Robinson who had reached third
by a steal chalked up another tally

tired without any moro business at
the home plato
Dad Glmlln and Murphy each made
phenomenal catches In the sixth Rob
iieon tho Occidental second base
man pulled down a lofty drive with
one hand In tho fourth which moved
tho shaded grandstand to applause
Throughout the game there were a
number of boneheaded plays on tho
part of Ogden players that were ex
tremely costly and which many fans
say were paid for with tho game Tho
homo team attempted a rally In tho
eighth when Ramshaw hit an elong
ated drive to center for two sacks
Gimlin followed In his footsteps and
pushed the sphoro to right allow

Saturdays Game
Saturday afternoon on the diamond
at the Fair grounds tho Ogden team
put another ono over on the Salt
Lake players In grand stylo There
was no time In the game that the
Saints had a show with the locals
and Jt looked probable up to the sev
enth Inning that It would be another
shutout against tho Salt Lake team
Lumley though for the homo team
did a lltlc rough work In the seventh
and from then until the finish of the
game the score stood 3 to J
An Immense crowd of Ogden
ball fans Including a big percentage of
feminine admirers of tho game was
in attendance and the good playswere
vigorously applauded The boys from
the Industrial School were guests of
the local management and the little
fellows enjoyed the courtesy to the
utmost following the game with ex
pert attention and giving vent to their
excitement In no uncertain terms
Excellent Work by Both Teams
It was really a good gamo and both
teams did excellent work at times
There were a number of sensational
plays not tho least of which occurred
in the latter half of the ninth inning
Salt Lake had mon on bases and a hot
drive was let loose toward second
base It looked like a safe hit and
money that Salt Lake would not tlo
the score went begging for a moment
The crowd had not reckoned with
flake however and to the surprise
of all the crack Ogden short atop gath
ered It in ranking a double play by
throwing to second and tho baseman
then getting It over to first In tlmo
to put Iho batter out
This play retired tho side and ended
the game
Wesslers Play
Another spectacular play was Wess
leru catch of a hot liner oft st > a
base A better stop has not been
made hero this season and the base
man Improved tho opportunity still
more by making a double play
Taylor was the star of the day
through his repeated success at steal
ing bases He stole three in a sen
sational manner sliding to safely
each time as If he were on the pro
verbial greased rollers Salt Lakes

Democrats of Nebraska will hold their
platform convention In this city Tues
day and It promises to bo of greater
Interest than any gathering of tho
kind held In this state for many years
That there will me a contest to se
cure a county option plank in tho plat
form Is admitted by ovary loader In
the Democratic state organization An
that the contest will be carried on be
tween leaders who heretofore have
agreed In every way on whnt Demo
cratic platform should contain Will
lam J Bryan for the first time since
he took up tho leadership of tho Dem
ocratic party will be opposed by for
mer associates within his own state
Tho fight for and against county op
don has become an opon ono Mr
Bryan and his friends are actively
engaged In an attempt to secure a
county option plank while Congress
man Hitchcock of Omaha and Mayor
James C Dahlraan also of hat city
supported by Governor Shallonborgor
are equally active In an effort to so
Cure a declaration against such a plan
Tho situation Is considered an un
usnal ono because the mon who at
present are most active opposing Mr
Bryan wero formerly his strongest
supporters This condition considered
with tho fact that tho campaign for
tho selection of a state ticket and the I
recommending of a candidate for
United Stales senator Imfi taken on I
ran different angles has given Im
petus to tho political struggle In Ne I
braska seldom If ever before witness
ed Congressman Hitchcock has been
for several months an avowed candi
date for United States senator and has j
been organizing his forces throughout
tho state with a view to securing tho Ii
support of tho rank and file of his
party Ho has slaled his position a
being opposed to county option until
tho people 9f the Mate under an Intl
atlro and referendum law hall do
I nN specifically for It
< Them Is little doubt that the and
oounty option man will present such
a plank and that It will bo heartily
and his friends
opposed by MrBryan rondl
Mr Bryan has always been glvou a
place on the resolutions committee
and his policies have always prevailed
when he attended state conventions
in tho writing of platforms That no
will be accorded tho name courtesy
wi 0 nccored
of appointment nt Tuesdays conven
lion Is generally admitted h
It IR believed there will bo an over
whelming majority opposed to him on
th question of county option 1 Is
BOW apparent that ho will carry tho
fight to tho floor of the convention
and there make a plea for a straight
county option plank Six hundred of
the eight hundred delegates t the
convention are either InBfniriod 01
aro known to bo opposed to such n
plank and extreme Interest centers on
what effect Mr Bryan speech on tho
convention floor will have on tho ma

Mr Bryan In tho publication of the

dacy for United Slates senator al tho
last moment In opposition to Con
gressman Hitchcock He has received
tho unqualified endorsement of Mr
Brynn who expresses the belief that
Motcalfo can poll moro votes than
other Democrats himself not excepted
Bryan and Motcalfo wore formerly
splayed by Mr HItchcock All three
have ben closely associated In the
political world until now and by many
Democrat leaders It Is believed tbo
coming state convention will mark
the parting of the ways
