PAGE THREE. SUIIDHY SCHOOLS TO HOLO-MEETIIIG Forty-sixth Annual Convention Will Be Held at In dianapolis. NOTED MEM FOR SPEAKERS REV. F. B. MEYER OF LONDON, PERHAP8 BEST KNOWN SUNDAY 8CH00L WORKER, WILL AD DRESS THE DELEGATES Indianapolis, March 17. A special significance attaches to the coming forty-sixth state Sunday school conven tion in the personnel of the eminent men who are to be seen and heard at Its sittings. First among these is Rev. F. B. Meyer, of London, England, who ' k v - AV (' REV. F. B. MEYER. At Local Theaters Slave of the Mill. "A Slave of the Mill" which will be seen at the Gennett tomorrow night is a melodrama which should be a de light to all lovers of the thrillers in dramatic work. The scenes depicting the life of the workmen in a big East ern mill are full of stirring action. "House of a Thousand Candles." One of the most pronounced novel ties that the drama has known in a number of years is "The House of a Thousand Candles" that is announced to appear at the Gennett Saturday, matinee and nieht. It is one of those plays so wholly different from the us ual tvne that it has aroused wide spread attention and consequently it is proving one of the great drawing cards of the season. It is an excellent dram atization from Meredith Nicholson s novel of the same name. At the Murray. Laskey's "The Hoboes" is a head- liner that is so different and as a sat ire it seems to be true and therefore real. In the act Nat C. Baker, the Italian impersonator, is the feature. Louise Denman, the Southern comed ienne, is becoming more popular with the audiences at each performance and "Foolish Questions" is a song that can not but strike a responsive chord in the minds of all as every one has had such a question put to him. The Avallon Family-European Wire art ists add variety to the bill by the good stunts. The comedy and the pa thos of "The Cattle Thief is also an act that has its admirers among the patrons of the Murray this week. The Treasure Hunters and the Dream of Toy Land as shown by the motion pic tures has in it plenty of comedy and especially appeals to the children. SEIIATE BRAZENLY FAVORS JOIIOPOLY When Reactionary Majority Smothers Washington Gas Investigation. SHIVELY MAKES PROTEST is undoubtedly one among the most eminent divines of the present day, He is perhaps the most eminent man connected with the entire 'Sunday school movement. He is president of the World's Sunday school association and is a preacher, author and lecturer of world-wide fame. During the last two years he has made tours in South Africa, China, Japan and other foreign countries, carefully studying the Sun day school problem. That he will have a fascinating, as well as instruct ive story totell to the convention in Indianapolis, is certain. - If there were not another name on the convention program this one should be sufficient. Rev. J. C. Hartzell, D. D., bishop of Africa for the Methodist Episcopal church, and Vice President of the World's Sunday school association, will also be present and address the convention, i His familiarity with Sun day school work in Mohammedan coun tries is well known, and his utterances will have the double merit of intense interest and the highest authority. The great Bishop, with his high pow ers and wide opportunities. Is sure to weave a spell about his subject that will enthuse, instruct and uplift, and if you fail to hear him the loss will be positive. Then there Is Mr. Marion Lawrance, who needs neither title nor introduc tion here. He is well known. He is the General secretary of the Interna tional Sunday school Association, and secretary of the World's Sunday school Executive committee. To those who know him his presence Is a positive in spiration, and to his audiences he is a verile force and poweT for good that is difficult of over estimation. Another tower of strength, is Mr. E. K. Warren, ex-president of the World's Sunday school association. If Mr. Warren had nothing else to commend him but this, it would pay you to cov er many miles to see and hear him, for be it remembered that a man who holds the presidential chair of this last mentioned association, needs nei ther excuse for his appearance nor yet our poor enconium upon the words he has spoken. If, then, there is such a thing as "a feast of reason and a flow of soul," surely it may be found in the array of talent that is here presented. But above and beyond all. this is the Master's cause, and He calls us to en gage in it. "Why stand ye here all the day Idle?" This query la as pertinent in the twentieth century as in the far away days of the Nazarlne's illustration. The preliminary work of the conven tion, is before ns, will we not rise in our might and do It? The topsy-turvy of religious Irre ligion in France was surely never more pregnantly illustrated than in the dec laration by a well known Socialist and free-thinker, that the floods in Paris are the expression of a supernatural vengeance upon the French people, and more particularly upon the Paris ians, for setting up idols in the shape of bridges, quays and building to per petuate the glories of war. It is true that this Socialist free thinker, Mme. Severine to wit, would be more fitly described as a witch per sang. For Mme. Severine is that combination of the prophetess and Cassandra which constitutes the modern witch in her most pronounced form. An ardent Socialist, with an eye to business, her "woe is Israel" happens to take the form of invective against the ruling powers; yet, like the witch, her hand ts against the established roder, and, again like the witch, she invokes un seen power, which can hardly be the same as that invoked by the clericals.

Russian Peasants Hav Queer Ideas of Sun, Moon and Stars. We have it oa no less authority than that of Caesar that the Druids taught their disciples many things about the form and dimensions of the earth and the heavens and a body of doctrines on the motions of the stars. Even death itself was to them an astronom ical fact. They held that from this life we pass to take up our abode in one of the heavenly bodies. That they firmly held to this belief is manifest from the fact that they had no ob jection to lending money to be repaid In the other world. They looked upon the passage of life in much the same way as we regard a journey across the Atlantic. . - There is no doubt that even now in various parts of Europe the views of the peasantry as to the heavenly bod ies and celestial phenomena have changed but little from those of their predecessors of a thousand years ago. A Russian contributed to the bulletin of the Astronomical Society of France has given the results of his observa tions on this point extending over ten years. The astronomical lore of the Russian peasantry of the north, center and south is limited to a knowledge of the existence of the sun and moon, of three constellations, of the Milky way, of one planet, of comets, shoot ing stars and meteors. The sun is to all a mysterious and beneficent being. The moon covered with ice and snow is ever in flight from its brother, the sun. Upon its disk may be seen unmistakably portrayed the murder of Abel by Cain, the latter being done to death by a pitchfork. Chill are the lunar rays, and woe betide the child of man who shall sleep unpro tected therefrom! From the horns of the crescent much useful Informs tion as to the forthcoming weather may be derived by the learned in such things. The stars are lamps or candles which are lit and extinguished daily by the Eternal. A shooting star is the soul of one who has just passed away. Comets are heralds of war and famine. No Russian ever forgets that the Napoleanic war followed the great comet of 1811. Westminster Gazette. AND WITH DEMOCRATS AND RE PUBLICAN INSURGENTS FIGHTS FOR PROBE BEVERIDGE WAS NOT IN CITY. Washington, March IT. One of the boldest strokes ever executed in the senate in the interest of corporations, was pulled off yesterday. By a vote of 37 to 25 the senate stifled a propos ed investigation of John F. McLean's Washington Gas company. The meth ods adopted to squelch the investiga tion are unprecedented. Some time ago Senator Brown, of Nebraska, in re sponse to a continued popular demand, for an investigation of the local gas monopoly, reported a resolution from the committee on corporations organ ized in the District of Columbia, au thorizing an investigation of the gas company. Consternation seized the friends of the monopoly when Senator Brown asked that the committee on contin gent expenses of the senate consider his resolution with a view of provid ing the necessary money to conduct the examination, his motion was lost, 33 to 30. Move by Gallinger. Then Senator Gallinger moved to re- refer the resolution, already reported, to the committee on District of Colum bia, of which Gallinger is chairman. Senators Shively, Cummins and Brown protested, but to no avail. Senator Lodge, of Massachusetts, argued that it was the thing to do. Shively de manded to know the precedents for thus taking charge of a resolution and changing its reference after it had been acted upon. Mr. Lodge declared these precedents were as "plentiful as blackberries," but like his distinguish- IS THINNESS EMBARRASSING?

A scrawny, gangling- youth or maid en is almost invariably slighted, over looked or ridiculed in any social gath ering. There is something about a plump or well proportioned figure which attracts not only friendship, but love and adulation as well. People with a proper amount of flesh are favored in all walks of life, while the thin are unblessed, unwel come and frequently miserable for life. The difference lies in the power of the digestive functions and the ability of the blood and nerves to absorb and, distribute over the body the nutrition extracted from the food eaten. i The thin person is abnormal and lacks the power to absorb and retain the flesh and fat elements which the gastric juices in the stomach and in testines should extract or separate from all kinds of food and drink. A recent accidental discovery has proven that tincture cadomene when blended with certain other drugs, will add from one to three pounds of flesh per week during treatment, while the genral health and strength also im proves wonderfully.

On the roll call, 37 senators, all reac tionaries, voted to put the investigat ing resolution to sleep in the district committee. One democrat, Johnson, (Alabama) voted with the republican reactionaries. The insurgent republi cans and democrats generally voted in the negative. Senator Beveridge was absent on account of sickness, but was paired against the monopoly. CARD PARTY given by the Ladies of the Maccabees, March 17.. 1910, I. O. O. F. Hall.

HIS RIVAL TRICKED HIM Washington, March' 17. At a hear ing before the house committee on ex penditures in the agricultural depart ment Representative Moss of Indiana made the charge that the bureau of soils was being used for political pur poses, and he cited an instance where an effort had been made by the bureau to boom the stock of former Represen tative Gilhams of the 12th Indiana district. Prof. Whitney, chief of the bureau, was on the stand. Repre sentative Moss directed his attention to a survey of the soils of Allen county. Indiana, which bore a statement in the preface that the survey was made at the request of C C. Gilhams, a for mer republican representative from In diana. He also produced a newspaper clipping giving Gilhams the credit for the survey. "The thing is done," de clared Moss, "simply to advertise Gil ham's aid to help him get back to con gress. I don't like it and I think this sort of political uses of this bureau should be stopped." IS VERY COIIFIDEIIIl Washington. March 17.

Get two and one-half ounces of Pinex (50 cents worth), put it In a clean pint bottle, and fill up with the Granulated Sugar Syrup. This makes a full pint of unequaled cough syrup, for about 54 cents. Keeps perfectly. Tou couldn't buy as much ready-made cougrh syrup for $2.60. This home-made remedy Is pleasant i to take, and usually stops even the most obstinate cough in twenty-four hours. It is splendid, also, for colds, whooping cough, bronchial ailments, etc. Take a teaspoonful every one, two or three hours. The Susrar Syrup Is an excellent sed ative. The Pinex is the most valuable concentrated compound of Norway White Pine Extract, rich in all the healing: elements of Norwegian pine. Be sure to use the real Pinex Itself. Your druggist has it or can easily get it for you. Strained honey can be used instead of the syrup, and makes a very fine honey and pine tar cough syrup.
