Aim of Life —Life is worth liviDg,
because there is a definite purpose in
God’s love for the human race. Christ
brought the life and love of Goa into
vital touch with helpless man. In
Christ, Almighty power became om
nipotent love, and that love taught men
the real value of living The love of
God for man is not an aimless passion;
neither is it a manifestation of purpose
less sentiment. His love has a purpose,
which is as definite as it is far reach
lng, viz. to make us his children here,
and, in the fullest development of
the fature world, to transform us in
moral character to the'perfect likeness
of Christ. Under the inspiration of
these truths life is transformed in char
acter and swayed by the noblest ideas
and highest purposes that ever entered
human souls.—Bev. T. S. HendersoD,

DES MOINES TOWNSHIP S. S. CON-
VENTION.
A goodly number of the S. S. workers of
Des Moines township, met at M.E. church
in Givin Tuesday. A constitution was
adopted and the following officers elected:
President, Wm. McClary; secretary, Lin
Seevers treasurer, I. B, Cox The follow
ing program was carried out and much in
terest shown in the treatment of different
subjects and discussions following:
Devotional Exercises.
‘ Importance of Sunday-school Work,”
Bev. Hanawall, of Beacon.
“Duties, Responsibilities and Qualifica
tions of Sunday-school Officers,” A Tandy
and J. A. Smith'
AFTKRNOON SESSION.
Devotional Exercises.
“Need of Consecrated Workers,”A F.N
Hambleton.
“Order of Exercises in Sunday-school,”
F. T. Allison.
“Need of the Colored Sunday-school,”
B-v. Griffith.
Question Box
“Soul Winning,” Bev. Shultz.
The. attendance at the afternoon session
was increased. Many practical points
were made as to importance of S S. work.
The formation of the character of ouryouth
and fitting for life and deciding eternal
destinies is made in 8. S. Each office
should aid in making a successful school
by a faithful compliance of duty and aiding
the superintendent. The assistant super
intendent should be one in fact and not
one alone in name. Thoroughly conse
crated workers will not look to great ac
complishments at a distance, but will be
gin at home, and by patient, faithful work
lead the lost and neglected about them in
to the fold of Christ. The order of exer
cises should be such as to command
promptness, attention and energy, and
while well defined should be subject to var
iation. More attention should be given to
the teachings of spiritual truths and appli
cations, rather than to the historical fea
tures of the lessons. Christ meant little
children when he said, “Suffer little child
ren to come unto me, etc and the young
should be early won for Him. Soul win
ning is dependent upon the power of the
Holy Ghost. h.

Full Particulars of the Story County
Calamity.
The foil particulars of the calamity
at Summit coal shaft, In Story county,
are as follows: The men were In the
just at closing time. The engineer
had built a big tire In the furnace which
hoists the cage and left for his supper.
While he was gone the timbers adjacent
to the furnace caught lire, and the
flames reached the cable attached to
the cage. When the engineer returned
he attempted to hoist the cage with the
men, but the cable broke and they fell
to the bottom of the shaft. The fall
was not over three feet and they were
uninjured, The mine was Ailing up
with smoke from the burning wood and
there was no other mode of egress for
them.
George Payne was foreman of the
little gang of miners, and they follow
ed him to one of the cells thinking they
would bank themselves in and prevent
the smoke from entering. The cell was
only ICO feet from where the wood was
burning, but belore they could enter
and build up the barricade they weie
suffocated. Toe iiißt news of ihe acci
dent was brougnt to Story City about
seven o'clock, immediately a rescuing
band was formed, and at the mine they
found the panic-stricken friends of the
imprisoned men standing at the open
ing of the shaft, from which dense vol
umes of smoke were pouring. As soon
as the smoke cleared away a cage was
rigged up and volunteers went into the
mine to learn the fate of the four men.
They were found almost In a heap, one
body laying across the thiee others.
The indications are that death ensued
within a half hour after they entered
the cell. Great rocks and ohunks ot
c >al had been moved np to the passage
way that showed how hard the im
prisoned men had worked to save their
lives.
The bodies were brought to the sur
face and removed to Story City, which
place was in a fever of excitement
over the accident. The suffocated men
were quite well known. Their namec
are Alfred Peterson, single; Alexander
Osterlund, single;Lngebrit Enge,single;
George Payne, married; leaves a wife
and three children.
The engineer, lu speaking of the ac
cldent, Bald the furnace had always
been considered perfectly safe. On
many occasions before while going to
his meals he had left more Are in the
grate and an accident had never hap
pened. He could only account for it
by explaining that as was his usual cus
tom he had banked the Are and the
gases under the ashes had caused a
slight explosionl n the grate and one of
the coals had been thrown out, passing
into a combustible crevice of the tim
bers. and thus started the blaze.
