KAVANAUGH Los Angeles trains No. 7 and 8, which were discontinued about a week ago, are again in service, the damage on the Salt Lake road having been repaired. The night train for the improvement of the mail servioe, has not materialized. The proposition to have the Grand Island local leave Omaha about midnight met with strenuous opposition from the peo ple of Pspillion and other towns on the old main line, and they took the matter up with the railway commission, and the hearing was held Monday of this week, and by making a few changes the schednle submitted by the Union PaciGo was accepted by the commission. The changes, which will probably go into ef fect next Sunday, changes the leaving time of the Grand Island local from Omaha from 5:30 p. m., to about 11:0 p. in., and in place of this one of the fast trains, probably No. 5, will run via the old main line to lane and make all the local stops between Omaha and Grand Island. Nos. '21 and 22 will only ran to Grand Island, but their present time will not be changed. West of Grand Island anew train will be put on each way. These trains will leave both North Platte and Grand Island early in the morning, doing the local work and will be known as Nos. 25 and 2f. The new arrangement should prove satisfactory as it will give the same mail service that was in effect before Nos. 13 and 14 were taken off, and also provide accomoda tions for those who wish to loave Omaha for the west on a late train.

Jokes and Familt. Coagregsttoaal Church. Separation for growth has ever bssa the gospel plan. Whan God would form a nsw nation the call came to Abram "Get thee oat from thy coaatry. and from thy kiadred." This wsa separation for the development of thoes graces that found fruitage ia Jesus. The studeat of evolution of society be holds in the ssparatiea of Abram from old systems aad customs the developing plan of great moral leaders. The mon astery and cloister have had a large place in the lives of men who afterwards blazed on society as great lights. Great rugged characters have often come from the out-of-way nooks aad often without the polish and fitting of schools have become leaders of men. This does not argue that men are not to give them selves the but possible training for their life's work, but rather that in close touch with nature and God there is something that equips one for great usefulness. We cannot have bodily separation to day. This is an age of intermingling. One ear is hooked to society by the tele phone and the other by the telegraph; we are only a night's ride from the great centers and their doing is graphically pictured to ua in the morning press. But if man ia to develops in christian graces there must be a separation. The christian man must stand aloof from the questionable things of society as much as if he were a thousand miles removed in person. The christian woman must be as far removed in thought and habit, yes, in the sweetness of her own soul culture from that whioh retards chris tian growth. Paula was in her oloister at Bethlehem. What God's church needa are mors separated men and wo men. The pastor of the Congregational church will apeak next Sabbath morning from the subject: Confidence in God'a Goodness. . Of the evening from the subjeot: The Tremendous Forces Working for Righteousness. This is the Iaat sermon of this series. A crowded house listened to lest Sundsy evening's sermon.
