CHURCH HISTORY IS READ AND MANY OF THE OLDEST MEM BERS WERE SEATED ON THE PLATFORM THEY WERE GIVEN CHAUTAUQUA SALUTE. The First Christian church closed its semi-centennial celebration last night, with what in the estimation of the members was the best service of all. It was a reminiscence meeting, and such was its interest that the company did not disperse until almost eleven o'clock. Freeman P. Haisley was the presiding officer. Following a cornet solo by Robert C. Wilson, the chorister, Mr. S. E. Mill3. the chairman of the official board, read an historical sketch covering the half century of the church's life. No brief mention can do justice to this excellent paper. Its every paragraph told of his diligent search into the annals of the church to discover the salient fact3 that had been made a matter of record as the years advanced. It may safelv be said that no members of the church had the least conception of this record in its entirety until this paper was be fore them. Alternate vicissitude and victory has marked the progress of this church. It has had a very checkered career, and its present prosperity has been secured at a fearful toll of trial and disappointment. The very con trast of the present with that stormy past did more than any other one thing to make this a "celebration." Interesting Feature. A) very interesting feature of the meeting was the appearance on the platform of all who had been members of the congregation for twenty-five years or more. In response to this call the following persons took their places: Mr. and Mrs. Richard Freeman, Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Caster; Mr. and Mrs. Ralph C. Weller; Mr. and Mrs. Charles M. Wilson; Mr. and Mrs. Freeman F. Haisley: Dr. J. A, Walls. Mr. Benjamin F. Harris, Mrs. Eliza beth Wright; Mrs. Mary E. Bonsall; Mrs. Clara Thomas, Mrs. Emma Ranks; Mrs. Anna B. Hoover; Mrs. Cy -rena Zimmerman; Mrs. L. S. Mann; Don't Wear A Truss After Thirty Years Experience I Have Produced An Appliance for Men, Women or Children That Cures Rupture.

Nixon; Mrs. Charlotte Soil; Mrs. Mary J. Fel ty, 'Mrs. R. L. More. Mrs. Diantha Peck, Franklin, Indiana, and the Rev. J. J. Morgan, Johnstown, Pa. The appearance of this company on the platform was the signal for the "Chautauqua salute." Mir. Haisley then formally, in a few well chosen words, presented the old pastor and his mem bers to the new pastor and his mem bers, response to this being made by the present pastor. The Rev. L. C. Howe, of New Castle, Indiana, came with words of greeting and letters of a congratulatory character were rea;l from the Rev. C. H. DeVoe. Peru, Ind.. and from the Rev. E. V. Spicer, Lado nla, Texas. Rev. Morgan's Address. The main address of the evening was made by the Rev. J. J. Morgan, he tak ing as his subject "The Old-Time Relig ion." This, however, was prefaced with pleasantries bearing upon his rec ollection of the congregation at the time that he served as pastor, and it seemed not a little remarkable that he should have been here twenty-five years ago, and that he should have on the platform with him Just twenty-five people. In pleading for the "Old-Time Religion," he said that it is not men who make religion, but religion that makes men. It will make a hero of anybody, and a saint of any sinner. You can not tell a church by its archi tecture, but by the kind of men inside of it. It is the spirit of the people, and not their equipment that tells for effective service. So closed a delightful period of ret rospect for the company of people, so deserving of their present prosperity. The meeting lasted one day longer than originally contemplated, and the pas tor of the church, in closing the meet ing, stated that this last meeting, in stead of being the close of the first half-century, is properly the beginning of the last half, and this portends a successful period in the immediate fu ture of the church.

Association, of South Bend; Tell City Brewing Company, of Tell City and Hack & Simon, of Vincennes. These are the breweries that are sapporting the vigilance bureau, and these are the ones that are to under take to clean up the saloon business in Indiana. There are not the only breweries in the state, but they are so strong in their organization that they will be able to carry out the plan, providing the plan is followed. Bad Ones Must Go. "We will drive out of business the saloon keepers who violate the law and thus create public sentiment against the business in general," said Mr. Johnson. "This thing cannot be done in a minute," Mr. Johnson continued, "but it can be done in time. It would not be possible for the bureau to cover every county at the same time, but it will probably take two or three counties at a time and renovate the business as rapidly as possible. The bureau will lay before the authorities all the evidence it gets. The brew ers realize that they have made mis takes in the past and that they are now reaping the -, whirlwind. They know they are backed up against a stone wall and that they must get themselves out of the trouble. They believe that the people of the state will soon see that they are in earnest and that when the people find this out they will encourage the brewers in the work." Weird Story of Fight With Death Heart Interest Story Told in a Diary Found in the Pocket Of One of the Dead Cherry Miners. Cherry. 111., Nov. 24. A diary was found in the clothing taken from one of the 38 bodies found in a pocket of the mine. The diary was begun Novem ber 13, and was written by Samuel D. Howard, 21 years old. It describes the slow death of the men by the en croachment of black damp, and refers tenderly to Samuel's efforts to save his brother, Alfred, 16 years old, who died by his side. The diary follows: "Alive at 10:30 o'clock yet: 10:45; 11 sharp. By Sam IX Howard. Brother Alfred is with me yet. A good many dead mules and men. I tried to save some, but came almost losing myself. "If I am dead give my diamond rin; to Mamie Robinson. The ring is com ing at the postoffice. Henry can have the ring I have in my clothes. The only thing that I regret is that my brother could not help my mother out after I am dead and gone. "I tried my best to get out, but could not. I saw Jim Jamieson and Steve Timke lying along the road and could not stand it any longer. It is five minutes past 11 o'clock and the air is fine, but sometimes it is so bad it al most puts a fellow's light out. It is something fierce to see men and mule3 lying down all over like that. "To keep me from thinking I thought I would write these few lines. There is rock falling all over. We have our buckets full of water sump water and we drink it and bathe our heads with it. . Ten to 12 o'clock; 7 after 1 o'clock; 3 o'clock; and poor air and black damp; 4:15 o'clock and change of place. No men tried to get out and could not get back; 7:30 o'clock, tired, hungry and sleepy; but I could stand quite a bit of this if I could get out of this hole. "7:50 o'clock in the morning. This is Sunday. There is no air. We fan ned ourselves with the lids of our buck ets. 25 after 9, and black damp com ing both ways. 25 after 10. We gave up all hope. "We have done all we could. The fan had better start above soon. 25 after 10 a. m. Sunday. We are still alive. The only hope is the fan. "I think I won't have strength to write pretty soon. "15 after 12 p. m. Sunday. If they can't give us air we will make fans our selves. We take turns at the fan. We have three of them going. "27 to 3 p. m., and the black damp is coming in on us. Only for the fans we would be dead. 11 to 4 p. m. Dying for the want of air. We have six fans moving, one fan after another, 15 feet apart. "25 after 10 p. m., Sunday evening. We all had to come back. We can't move, front or backward. We can stand it with our fans until Monday morning. "Monday morning, 2:15 Am still alive. We are cold, hungry, weak, sick and everything else. Alfred How ard is still alive at 0:15 Monday morn ing, still breathing. Something better turn up or we will soon be gone. At 11:15 a. m. still alive at this time. "Monday, 12:44 p. m. The lives are going out. I think this is our last. We are getting weak, Alfred Howard, as well as all of us." The men were evidently all killed b" black damp late Monday afternoon. 4S hours after the fire broke out in the mine. The diary was scribbled in lead pen cil on loose leaves torn from an ac count book. LURE OF THE GAME Not Even Blasts of Winter Can Kill the Enthusiasm Of the Fans.

Roast turkey and oyster dressing at Ed Roser's this eve An amusing Incident occurred in a well known local theater yesterday aft ernoon, where the world champion ship baseball series between Detroit and Pittsburg, are being shown. Two local fans, who have attended almost every performance, occupied as usual, seats in the front row. When a De troit tiger stepped up to bat, smashed one on the nose and dashed madly around the bases and hit the dust at third for a beautiful slide, the enthu siasm of the two "bugs" knew no bounds. So real and lifelike did it ap pear to them that they forgot it was only a picture and wildly cheered the brilliant play.- The picture showed the players disputing the umpire's de cision that the player was safe, and soon the two fans on the front row engaged in the dispute also. One de clared that he was safe while the other said he was out a mile and that he ran bases like a sewing machine. The two fans almost came to blows over the hot dispute following the umpire'3 decision and even when they left the theater, were still arguing the point.
