Columbia, Mo., Jan, I . Luncheon
at prayer meeting in the plan adopted
by the Methodist Church here In orde
to get the men to attend. Tbe Rev.
C. M. Bishop, pastor ot the church,
put the plan Into operation Wednes
day night, and it proved a success.
Many men who are regular attend
ants on Sunday attended prayer
meeting tor the first time in months.
Several thought "the eats" came af
ter the service and arrived late, but
found the praying in full blast and
the viands already disposed of.
In speaking of the Innovation, D
Bishop said tbe custom Is an old one
and that many members ot Protes
tant churches In old days were forced
to bring their supper along, on ac
count ot the long distances they had
to travel. The value of social Inter
course, coupled with religious service,
was not to be underestimated, he
said. Columbia Methodists will, ac
cordingly, take their suppers to the
church Wednesday evenings. ,, .

Originally, the system was a spiral
jieeula ot much larger dimensions
than at present, formed by the auto
matic coiling up under mutual gravl
tation of two or more streams of
cosmical dust which met in such
war as to produce a whirling - mo
tion about a center of vortex.
Ax. the nebula colled up under Its
own mutual gravitation tne spirals
were gradually drawn nearer ; . and
nearer together, and au tne nuclei
formed In these coils revolved la ellip
ttcal paths ot large eccentricity. Thee
original nuclei la tbe colling streams
were the beginning of the planets,
which became larger by gathering up
more cosmical dust, while at the
same time their orbits were reduced
in slsa snd rounded up under the
secular action of the resisting medlui
against which these bodies revolved.
Tbe resisting medium is the true
secret ot the roundness ot the orbits
ot tbe planets and satellites. The
nearly perfect circularity of these
orbits has always excited the wonder
of tbe greatest mathematicians.
This nebudous resistance has great
ly diminished tbe size and eccentric
ity ot the original orbits, so that our
solar system was in the beginning
much larger than It Is known to be
to-day. But as Neptune's orbit Is al
most an exact circle. Professor See
feels confident, and so announced to
the society to-night, that there still
exist several unknown planets of con-
slderable site above Neptune, some o
which msy yet be discovered.
"If Neptune were the outermost
planet," he said, "the orbits would not
be so round, for this circularity of th
orbit Indicates that Neptune revolved
for a long time against great resist
snce, and, therefore, the nebula at
tbat distance was dense enough to

You can eat anything your stom

a little Dlapepsln after eating.
Your meals will taste good, and
anything you eat will be digested;
nothing can ferment or turn into acid

causes belching. Dizziness, a feeling

Headaches from the stomach are

digest all the food you can eat and

McMillan Memorial Ass'n For-
mert Organized Thursaay
The 0. A. McMillan Msmorial Asso
elation was formally organized Thurs-
dsy afternoon at meeting held In
ths McMillan Nigh School. Misses
Eliza bath Gill and Maude Wallace,
ths originators of the movsment to
erect a tablet or bust In honor of
the lata superintendent of Mexico
schools, were present and explained
In detail what their hopes were. '
The primary purpose of the organ'
Izatlon is to erect, through voluntary
ubacrintions. a bust of bronze or a
tablet In honor of the late D. A. Mc
Millan, which will he placed in the
Auditorium of the high school bear
ing hla name when that section of
the building Is completed. .
These subscriptions are not to be
solicited but must come voluntarily.
A member of each class will he ap
pointed a subsidiary secretary to In
form the members ot his class of
tbe movement and that should they
care to subscribe be has been ap
pointed to receive money.
Miss Elizabeth Gill was elected
president, Miss Esther Norris secre
tary and James Jesse treasurer. All
subscriptions that are not sent to the
class representative should be given
to Mr. ; Jesse. Tbe executive com.
mlttee is composed Of three offi
cers of the Association and Superin
tendent Hawthorne. The committee
to ascertain the cost of a tablet or
bronze bust Is Mrs. R. R. Arnold, Sr.
Miss Maude Wallace and L. M. White.
The Information committee Is com
posed of tbe Rev. A. A. Wallace,
Miss Nannie Wright and L. M. White.
Tbe style ot memorial depends, to
a certain extent, upon tbe amount
subscribed. Whether a bas relief or
bust can be modeled from a photo
graph the committee does not know,
and should It prove they cannot, then
It is hoped to not only erect a tablet
In honor of Prof. McMillan, but also
place a handsome oil painting of
him In the building.
The matter of perpetuating the As
soclation after all the subscriptions
bave been made and forming
alumni Association for the High
School with each year celebrating by
an annual dinner was also discussed
and will later be given serious con
It is hoped that all who intend sub
scribing will do so Immediately so
that the memorial may be placed in

unveiled with fitting ceremonies.

The blizzard the Worst In yean
One of the worst blizzards that
has ever visited this section In years
enveloped Mexico and Audrain coun
ty Thursday night. Ths storm was
preceded by a heavy rain and elec
trical storm. Ths wind was terrific
throughout the night and ths greater
part of the dsy. Electric wires were
blown down and many pieces of bus

for power were forced to lie Idle.
Windows were blown In, trees razed

The snow drifted on the sidewalks
in some places, reaching a depth of
a foot and forcing pedestrians to util
ize tbe streets. During tbe storm
business waa practically at a stand
still. The wind blew the icy parti
cles ot snow In swirling eddies that
stung the face of those unfortunate
enough to be out with the pain of pin
points. We have had deeper snows
but none quite so terrific. Nine year
ago this State was visited by a three
days' storm that registered a fall
of 21 Inches.
Damages Done by Storm

Throughout this city the storm
razed trees to the ground, broke
window glasses and blew over flues.

The tin root of the top story of the
Clarkson Hotel was removed; a large
plate glass at the home ot R. M
White was crushed In and the flue
at the home of W. W. Johnson, on
N. Jefferson street, blown over.
Electrical wires are down in many
parts of the city and the high winds
Friday made the work of repairing
aimosi impossible. All trains are
also late due to the high winds.
At Lamont, near Sedalia, a torna-
doo swept tlfe town about 6:15 Thurs
day afternoon. Several persons were
slightly hurt, two were dangerously i
