The good old dajs when a dollar a diem for three meals was the height of extravagance (and, even then, such dally liberality was only tho depravi ty and folly of a gourmand, with an epicurean taste and a snug bank ac count) are no more. That sum now only equals the cost of the hind leg of a Cole county rabbit with necessary trimmings, a deml tasse of Java, two cold, overbaked biscuits and a dab of oleo, with tho "tip" to the waiter still 1 to be provided for. And the "tip" for the service, with nlckles and dimes not considered legal tender In the restaurants and hotels of the perma nent "cheat-the-govcrnment" city, and n silver-quarter so small and light In weight that It cannot easily bo palm ed, must look like and be a real half-a-dollar to gain the favorable recognl. tlon of "thanks," hlcciJnjj Habit a, Luxury ,The rent of rooms ranges from $20 a month for a "small back, on the third floor, heated by a wood-burning stove, to $60 for a 12x12. with the chill occasionally removed by a steam radiator and with tho ' bath anil hot running water, Just down the hall." On. the outskirts of the burg "sleeping rooms" are cheaper but It takes the climbing and clinging ability and tenacity of an Alps mountaineer to make tho dally round trip when the hills and vallejs of this coaster center are Ice coated as Is apt to be most of the time whllo the legislature is In session. Sleeping Is quickly trans formed Into a luxurious habit which ought to be dispensed with in the name of economy. The benevolent and Samaritan act of sprinkling ashes on an ice coated pavement to mako walking easier Is unknown In the resident section of the state's capltol city, probably for the good reason that Buch debris of coal, wood and other fuel always has a commercial worth, being useful and valuable In filling up the deep "hole" constituting the back yard of every other residence. The main streets and highway of this Missouri Pacific division point follow the crests of a series of bluffs and hills, regardless of the compass, with houses built on tho descending inclines, tho rear roams facing a sixty degree preclplco down which tho sewerage and storm waters alwajs pursue a natural couroe, heedless of whose back yard f (Continued on Piee lour) MUST IIAISE $25,000 TO OCT $100,000 The county court outgoing and the Incoming court, and Mayor Mclnlnch, S.

The two young scoundrels and would-be murderers who threw tho Burlington's St. Louis Fljor into tho ditch near Saxton on the night of Tuesday, Dec. 12th. and tried to kill 150 Innocent passengers in order that they might during a season of death and destruction rob the mall car are now In the county Jail, they having been picked up Monday afternoon. The two conscienceless and murder ous scoundrels are Alvln Marlon Clark of near Easton. and William Kramer of Sacramento, California, both of whom have signed confessions giving all details of the hellish scheme and plot. Clark was captured In the Burling ton general offices Monday afternoon, when he walked In and asked for a Job ho Is a railroader and was re ferred to the headquarteis of special officer E. M. Mathews, who first questioned him and finally secured an admission from Clark that he was not William Hlce of Savannah he claimed to be, secured tho further admission that he was Clark and that he had been connected with the wrecking of the train. Then It was easy to round up and arrest Kramer and the two wcro taken to Central pollco station where they each made full and com plete confessions detailing all features of the dastardly affair. The confes sions which were taken separately tal lied exactly. Tho two went to Easton on that night and stole the tools from the Burlington tool shanty near there, after which they went a mllo and a half out of town where Clark remov ed the angle bars and Kramer pulled tho spikes and moved the rail Then they hid beside the track and waited Tho train" after leaving the rails did not create a sufficient amount of panic among the passengers, none of whom fortunately were killed, nnd the two young would-bo murderers fled from the neighborhood without turn ing a peg. Clark, who Is tho directing and master mind of the whole affair, seems to gloat over the notoriety he has achieved Kramer has little to say. A stout ropo might havo somo effect on him.

Detective Ed Eads covered Jos. eph W. Wagner of Kansas City, Kas , with a big revolver and Detective John Sampson clamped a pair of handcuffs on him, after which he was taken to the station and locked up. Wagner is a much wanted man and Is rated as a bank robber of no mean caliber. Just now ho Is wanted for his alleged connection with tho rob bery of tho State nank of Piper, Kas., and the Bank of Qulndaro, Kas, from the two of which he and his partners secured $10,000.

THE CITY 1HTY8 IJBnnTY BONDS City Comptroller Wlllard has pur chased through the First National Bank, which charged no commission, $100,000 worth of 4U per cent Liberty bonds at $98,078. They will be placed in the sinking fund and held until August, 1923, when fliy will be used to retire the 1903 bonds amounting to $112,000. , ,, Ol SAYS HE LOST $8,600 O. i:. Wright Wat Held Up and Ilolibcd In I he American Xatlnn.il Hank ltulldliii; Momlaj. It was n queer sounding tale that E. C. Wright, a leal estate dealer who maintains an office In room D14 of the American National Bank building, told a squad of police headed by Capt. James Kelly Monday night, after they had loosened the ropes which bound him, and the gags which filled his .mouth. He was found prostrate on tho floor of the room, his hands lahed back of him and two handkerchiefs tied across his mouth effectually stop ping his speech. After the men had slugged, gagged and robbed him he managed to kick tho telephone from a desk and roll over to It on the floor, where he made Inarticulate sounds into the receiver until the operator turncel tho alarm into pollco head quarters and officers went to his res cue and relief. The tut on Wright's head Is a deep one and he also had a badly bruised nose. AVrlght, whoso home Is at Weather by, told the officers that he came here Monday and drew $8,600 In big bills from a safety deposit box that he has In tho Empire Trust Co Ho put the money In a manllla envelope nnd then sewed It Inside of one of his In side vest pockets. He claimed that he kept his monev that way Instead of In a bank as he had a $00,000 Judg ment hanging over him and did not care to have his money attached. The Judgment Is correct. After he secured his money he went to DeKalb on a real estate deal, but failed to put It through and then returned here and purchased tickets for Omaha Intend ing to go there that night. Then he wont to his business room about 6 30, and while sitting In a chair reading a letter was assaulted by the two men, robbed of his money and then gagged and left on the floor. Wright claimed that ho secured a good look at his assailants and could easily Identify them. He Bald that with the exception of ordering him to hold up his hands when they first camo In, neither of the two men spoke. Telephone calls were sent to all neigh, boring towns and cities, and tho police combed the city. Ho claimed that he had seen two men near tho Union sta tley who acted like they were follow ing him that afternoon.

Ho gasped a few times after an nmbulance reached there but was dead before help cam Nnum Taleff. who conducts tho place, fired the shot ho had been watching for burglars that laid Roe low. When Roo flashed his light on him, it gave him a good target and he Improved It. Tho dead man, who was 28 jears of age and married, leaves a wife He' also had a lengthy prison record.

Father Carney's work at Mober ly Is highly commended. During his stay there he built a $126,000 church. - Sunday temperature was fire de grees abovsj zero. - . . i ' '. His Address Was a Masterly Exposition of the Doctrine as Promulgated by Its Founder It was an audience which completely filled the commodious Lyceum, which Judge Samuel W. Greene. C. S. 13., of Louisville, Ky , a member of the board of lectureship of the Mother Church, the 1'irst Church of Christ Scientist, in Boston, Mass., faced Tues day night after Mrs. Charles M. Howe had fittingh introduced him, and to which audience he delivered a masterly discourse in full as follows : A familiar lijmn has been para phrastel as follows: "I lovo to tell the story of Life and Truth and Love, It stills tho voice of error and turns my thoughts above. I love to till the sturv and prove that it is true. By healing bin and sickness as nothing else can do I love to tell the story, 'twill be m theme In glory. To tell the new -old story of Life and Truth and Love " Christian Science is Indeed the new -old story of Life and Truth and Love It la the simple, sweet story as It was taught and proved and prac tised by Jesus of Nazareth nineteen hundred jears ago It embiaces Just the same thought, that through the understanding of the ever-present lovo and power of God humanity Is healed not only of sin but of all the results of sin sickness, sorrow, unhappiness, death THE DISCOVERER AND FOUNDER Mar) Baker Eddj, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science like manv of us, suffered, and found no relief from materUl means si she turned to God's word with the hope and delre to bo heakd of sickness, sorrow, lack anel loneliness As she contemplateel this wonderful unfold nient of divine Love and powei as thej wero taught bj Jesus of Nazareth, as she re ad of the healings of sick men and womtn, there came to her peace freedom healing. Ju' as Jesus had promised "Y s.iall know the truth nnd the truth .i ell make you free" She realized that what had como to her was not supernatural, not an un natural development or result, but tho perfectly natural result of the opera tion of God's law Her great elesire after that was to lay hold upon the undemanding of this spiritual law that she might be able to help others to gain this freedom ulikh had come to her Devoting herself for several jears almost exclusive!) to tho stud) ot Gods word, there camo to her a more pei feet vUlon of the ever-present, omnipotent power of God dwelling among men and available for human need She discerned, and points out to us In her writings, that alwajs whin men havo undeistood God they havo been able to accomplish the so called Impossible or unusual things. To verity this, we navo only to study th' hlston of Moses. Therein we see that through the right understanding of God, Moes was able not onl) to heal pcoplo through spiritual means but he was able to accomplish other wonderful things He negotiated tho freedom of a nation unlaw full) en slaved, without the expenditure of mono) and without an exhibition of the power of arms He equipped nnd maintained this pcoplo when newly freed, governed and led them wlsel) for a long period of jears, finding their every supply In the knowledge tliat from nod is all goou. In the lives of Elijah and Ellsha we teo not onl) that abllltj to heal nil manner of sickness, to even ralso the dead, hut that those prophets were eor.sulte-d freriucntlv bj Mm kings and rulers of their time upon questions of state and government because of their better understanding of God In the lives of Daniel and his three associates we see through their right understand ing of God not onl) the power to withstand the lions dn and the fiery furnace, but that which attracted the attention of a heathen king, causing him to recognize in thew men, who were virtually slave in his kingdom, a powor that nefie of his wise men or advisers possessed JESUS THE CHRIST In Jesus' life Mrs. Eddj saw, as we can seo, a fuller and more complete understanding of God and God's power lha"r any other one had pos sessed It seemed a perfectly natural tiling to the Master that he shuuld speak and dlseaso be healed, elevlls cast out and the dead raised He did not claim, however, that It was through any great power of his own Ho did not claim that he lived and movod In a so-called miraculous per iod of tho word's hUtory as some so called orthodox thinkers would have us believe He said, verj simply and modestlj "The Son can do nothln? of hlmtelf, but what he seeth the Father do for what things soever He vloeth. these also doeth the Son like wise Also he said I sek not ml no own will but the will ot tho Father which hath tent me", giving us a rule of conduct which If followed will work wonders In our develop ment If we think se, and do alwajs the thing that It. In accord with the will of tho heavenly Father, how splendid will bo our vvoik. It will thon be a perfectly natural develop ment In our lives to Bee all these things coming to pass of which Jesus spoke when he said "lie that be licveth on mo, the works that I do shall he do also." Christian Science Is bringing to the world the right understanding of God which will enable men and women to tee that they have power through this understanding to overcome la.l, sorrow, disease, sin, and deati. Mre. Eddy saw In these statements of the Master. "Before Abraham was, I am", and "Lo, I am with jou al way, even unto the end of the woild", a vision of the eternal Christ or Truth, as sh speaks of him. Jesus expressed, n&nlfested, reflected more I 0I lne wnnsinan any otner one who has ever lived He wa-t therefore called Jesus tho Christ, or Christ Jesus, anel it was through the under standing of this Truth, this God-idea evor-present among men, that ho was able to do his wonderful works Like wise it Is In this understanding, through a knowledgo of this Truth, that we shall be able to overcome, as Jesus said "all the power of the en em " so that nothing shall bj any means hurt us. As this great vision came to Mrs. Eddy she was eager to give it to the world, but she wisely saw that the world would not bo read) to listen to a message so different from Its aej customed religious teaehlng until It had proof of its power Consequent ly she first taught by healing, Invit ing those who were affllctcel to come and be healed, and her first patients and students were largely the so called Incurables for whom material remedies offered no hope The') were healed bj her teaching and practice not onl) ph)slcallj but splrltuall) and mentall), thej heard this message gladlv went out and told their frlenda and brought them to hear the good news Graduallj Mrs Eddy saw by the results of her own work that tho application of this divine Principle was unfailing that alwajs when It was rlghtlj applied and rightlj re ceived there was heeling. Then she divined that the world's consciousness was readj generall) to hear and to rc celv this message of Truth, this demonstrable unfoldment of God as omnipresent, omniscient and omnipo tent as she expresses It In the textbook. TEXT-BOOK Accordingly she wrote what had been revealed to her and called it 'Science and Health with Kej to the Scriptures', commonly known as the Christian Science Text-book and gave this volume to all mankind Sho gave the message generously and free ly to all who were willing to accept, that eveij- man might be able with this book, this Key to the Scriptures, to sit down in the quiet of his own home and read and studj and find out the truth about God Onp of the wonderful things about the fext-book is that jou do not have to accept anjhod)'a word for tho statement that It does give the correct interpretation of the Bible and tho correct unfolding of the truth about God You can read and study and then put It into practise In jour own life, and seo whether or not it meets the demand which Je.sus made when ho said "A tree Is known bj' Its fruits " This text-book, founded absolutely upon the Bible, has served to tear tContlnued on Pago Three) MIfeb IIVIIRY RECEIVES HER REWARD At Prlnz's academj on Wednesday evening the Theodore N. Vail silver medal for bravery was awarded to Miss Elizabeth Barrj of 1319 North Tenth street by the Bell Telephono Co for her humanitarian work In saving the lives of the two little Hoinkohl children, while sho was .i supervisor In tho local offices The presentation of tho medal and $SJ0 In cash was made by Mr. Tercj Kcd mund of St. Louis, general nianagei for the company In Missouri and Kan sas A number of officials were pres ent Music was furnished bj the Mc-Nult-Welty orchestra who also plaj -ed for the danco that followed tho presentation.
