The hoards of llttlo English sparrows In

over known before , have made a discovery

banks In the city have been honey
combed by the sand swallows , nnd In the
holes they have excavated they have made
their nests without molestation for years.
During the winter the sparrows have discov
ered that these deported nests afford them
line quarters , and about nil the excavations
In all the banks around town have licon taken
possession of by them. Yesterday they wore
warming around the faces of the cliffs by
thousands. When the swallows return next

Atnply. heated , well lighted , clean , com
fortable , well ventilated and cozy In every
respect the now Trinity Metboilst church
was thrown open to the public and solmonly
dedicated In accordance with the Methodist
rltunl'ycstcrday , There were no vacant seats
In the auditorium , and If the building had
been larger there would have bojti no unoc
cupied chairs , for many people paused at the
door unable to gain admittance.
The dedicatory sermon was delivered by
lov. ! Dr. .Men-ill of Omaha. In the pulpit
wcro seated all tlio ministers of the other
Methodist , churches In the city , nnd Hov.
Mr. Sims of .Wisconsin , The services began
at 10M : nnd Old not close until nearly 1
o'clock , Following Urn opening hymn nnd
prayer the choir rendered a beauti
ful anthem , At the conclusion of
the second scriptural reading nmt hymn
by the entire congregation , Dr. Merrill was
Introduced nnd delivered the dedicatory ser
mon. Ho found his text In tlio Uth chapter
of Jolin , lath verso , comprising the words
und promises of Christ : "Verily , verily , I
say unto you , ho that bolleveUi on Ale , the
worhs'thutldoRhall no do also , and greater
works than these shall ho do , because I go
unto my Father. " ,
" .Extraordinary nets , " Dr. Merrill said ,
"predicate extraordinary actors , Christ
anlrnu with this double'vurlly' ' that believ
ers shall do preat things. Our observations
and cxporlc'icos niako this statement scent
unlikely. Have wo und Olirlst the same be
lievers'In mind I Is there anything peculiar
liliMen away In Ills hellovorlVo must ask
Him sotno nueslloim. "
First , who Is the belloverl As to the per
sonality the statement of the text must betaken
taken literally , ho that bcllevctu. Anybody
may bo the believer. The text Is ns univer
sal as "whomsoever will may como , " so wo
have no dlfllcultv hero. U'ho second proposi
tion In this Inquiry wns ns to Christ's creed.
Hero the speaker took occasion to
say that liberalism , free thought ,
advanced thought , etc. , was all
nonsense ns applied to the gospel. Can a
m.m bo liberal about , his wife's virtue ! Truth
Is truth us absolutely as virtue is virtue.
When a man can do as well on a dlot of
sawdust ns beefsteak then error will make as
strong a moral character ns truth. Now
what mu i our believer bellove ? Ho must
bcllevo In God. Christ said : "Yo believe
In God , believe nlso In Mo. " The old
Hebrew doctrine of God must bo held , His
Individuality , unity , spirituality , etc. No
man nor organization of men without this
faith ever did anything to Identify them-
themselves with thclcxt , no great reformers
nor revolutions led by inlldols nor errorists
hero. He must alee believe lu Christ , His
divinity and humanity. Ho cannot believe
in ono nor the other and do tbeso
great things of the text. History is
barren of achievements by errorists as
to the person of Christ that would roltito
thorn to bis toxt. Herod boltuved in the Im
munity of Christ , and plotted murder.
Simeon believed him to bo the sou ot God ,
and It made him glorify God. So It Is always.
Wo must believe In the Holy Ghost. The
chapter is full of this , "I will send the com
forter. " A believer whoso creed docs not
tuko In the IIolv Ghost never docs any
mighty works , ttcro the speaker at some
length effectively Illustrated and enforced
this Item of belief. This comforter in all
His olUeos wixs shown to bo essential to the
believer who should fuhill the toxt.
The Holy Ghost vitalizes and enger-
gizes. Ho must believe in prayer.
"If yo ask anything in my name I
ivlllilo It , " says the next verso. The bo-
Hover must Know how to pray. This point
was also dwelt upon to bring out ana apply
the point. Ho must believe .in heaven. "In
my father's house arc' manymansions , " says
the second vorso. Paul says , 'if for this Hfo
only wo have hope , wo are of all men most
miserable. " It tukes faith in heaven and its
reward to malte believers sacrillco and suffer ,
do creat things lor Christ. This item of
faith wns then adroitly applied to giving for
this new church.
Second , what will the bellovor do , what
, vlll not such a believer del Seeing on those
live summits of truth In the light of God's
smile , und breathing the air of such an alti
tude , ho will do anything for God , the same
works that Chrjst did. Christ Is our example
as tolas human life , not us to his Messiah-
ship. Do the same works as to kind , not as
to identical works. Do creator works 1 Yes ,
bat thu speaker hud 110 tlino to show how ,
and evidently omitted part , of the thoughts
connected with the theme on account of lack
of time.
The sermon closed with a pretty Illustra
tion of thu truth sought to bo enforced.
George Washington gathers statesmen
around his death bed , Ho huml.s them a
copy of the constitution ana asks them to administer -
minister It in government , embody It in laws ,
and teach it to their successors and to their
children , then they and others will do
greater things than he Las done. Look M
the fulfillment in history ; what has been
donoiti this republic ! So Christ has His dis
ciples nbout Him , gives them His puspol :
they are to bollovo It , und apply It and bund
It down to generations to follow. See what
the result must be.
The sermon was listened to with deep In ,
tcrcst , and at Us conclusion Hev. Alexander ,
the pastor of the now church , gave u brief
history of the origin of the organization and
thu movement that so quickly crystallised and
made It possible for the erection of the
line building to bo dedicated. The
work wns begun two years ago ,
which period covered the full Hfo of
tlio organization. The movement to build
the church was begun less than llfteen
months ago , and the purchase of the ground
nnd the active work dates only from.last
spring. Hov. Alexander stated tint it could
have boon built sooner , but they gave way
for the other churches that had begun the
work of erecting now buildings before the
Trinity people commenced.

'A meeting wns held at tbo Omaha National
bank building In Omaha last Saturday for
the purpose deciding wiiat is the most feasi
ble plan for securing a slice of the appropria
tion which was mndo. by congress nt its last
session for improvements on the Missouri
river. The Council Bluffs board of trade
was represented by G. I'1. Wright , the city
council by Mayor Macrae , the waterworks

FAIUII2S AND DADDY BENSON.
Uo Could n't liriiiK One Home , Out
"Went to Them.
There is no ether place under the
heavens where the early tnoraings of
summer nnd fall have the charm of those
down in the OzarKs of southern - Missouri
souri , says a Detroit Free Press
writer.
It wns on ono of those line mornings
that Benson sot out across the hills to
catch a few fish nnd do u llttlo shooting.
"Good bye , Ben , " ho shouted back to
the youngster in the door of the little
log house. "Good bye , nnd bo u good
boy. "
"Good bye , dnd , " squeaked a youthful
" an' ' don't ' the
voice ; "good bye , forgit
fairies. "
The little fellow waved his hand en
ergetically until the mountaineer father
was lost to view in the brush , boyorid the
cleared patch. Benson know more folk
lore and fairy tales than any of the ether
nntlvos. Ho had read of the brownies
and their moonlight nntics , nnd when
Bonnie became able to talk ho wns told
of the little elfins , and the big goblins ,
and the shiny , golden water sprites.
Benson was in all ether respects a rough ,
homespun mountaineer.
"Jos' wait , " wns his last words buforo
breaking through the undergrowth on
that Roldon Ozarlc morning ; "jes' wait ,
an' I'll bring yor a fairy , sura pop. "
All day long- the little native sat In
the cabin door and peered oil into the
woods.
"It's no use for yer ter bo sottin'
there , " snid Benson's wife , "for yor
pav'll ' not bo back nforo night. "
"But of ho ho'll "
pots or fairy como ,
said iJoniiy , "cause thcr fairy'd die cf
hit wa'nt brought homo right or way. "
Bonny wiitcned until the sun wont
down , and then when it grow so dark
that ho could no longer BOO into the
woods ho wont inside of the house nnd
laid down on the dirt lloor. Pretty soon
ho forgot about the fairies and wns fast
asleep. "When the sun of another beau
tiful morning broke over the Ozarks ,
the little fellow's eyes wore opened and
his first thoughts were of the fairies.
"A.iut and eomo yet ? " ho cried.
Hanson's wife shook her head.
"N"ot yet , Bon , " suld Bho , "an1 mayliy
- mayby "
"Muyby lio's got more fairies than ho
kin bring or homo , " suggested Bonnlo ,
and mother smiled feebly , nnd patted
the boy's head with her rough hnnd.
Then the brush , out across the cleared
patch parted , and four roughly clad natives -
tivos pushed through. Between them
they Ijoro the limp body of Benson , the
mountaineer.
"Ho hu't hisso'f oz ho war shootln' at
' ' " explained of the
or ilyin' squir'l , ono
natives.
w 'One ono.or thor fairies , " gasped the
. .oundci1. man , "but but I didn't ' got

The llttlo native put his hnnd in Bon-
son's rough ono.
"An1 yer didn't got no fairies daddy ? "
ho naked eagerly.
The mother drew him gently away ,
but Benson Immediately ailed the boy
bade. >
"No , I didn't git none , Bon , but I'm '
going back to fairyland I'll bw there
today , Ben for for good. "
"Kin I go , too , dad ? " cried the boy y %
loaning over the mountaineer's breast.
But there was no answer. Benson had
gone.
Then Bonnlo sat down on tbo dirt
floor and cried as if his little heart
, would break , bQcauso ho was loft be
hind.

The question of cheap ! insurance. Is being
solved by the farmers of Iowa in a practical
and successful way. Tno state auditor's lust
report shows IN ! mutual companies in the
state , carrying risks aggregating f < 58,000,000
nt an average annual cost of ? l.S3 per $5,000
insurance. The twentieth uununl meeting of
the Sprlngdalo company of Cedar county ,
just held , shows the company has now at
rislc * dS7 , ! ) , u net Increase in 1880 of ? < J,475. ! )
Five losses amounting to $1,075.01 , were
paid In 1890. The amount paid ofllcors and
all employes for 1890 was Si30.80 , for other
expenses , SSU.Oi. The castpcrl,000 , for the
year was $3.82. The membership nnd survey
'fees for2,000 fortwotlty'j-cars in the past
wns ( r > and the total assessments on $2OOU for
twenty years past was 133.70. Joint stock
companies have charged for $3,000 for the
last twenty years 8180.
The Mitchell couiity farmers' ' mutual in
surance company has also just held Its meet
ing. The books of the company show that
the amount of risks now lu force-is but llttlo
less than $1,500,000 , , the amount written dur
ing the year being $234,100. These are only
sample reports and the other companies of
like nature will probably make as good show
ing. The companies are entirely ofllcored by
farmers who serve without salary.

CLEANING
The Ten Dollar sale of overcoats WG inaugurated last week has re
duced our stock considerable , still we have yet quite a few to dispose of
In a week or so the season will be olosed , and what is not sold will have
to be carried over till next fall. We have no room for unseasonable
stock. We have always made it a point to clean out at the end of each
season , and are determined to do it this time. One of the secrets of our
success lies in tlie fact that we start every season with an entire fresh
stock. We do not allow any goods to be carried over from one season to
anotlier. We know people will not buy overcoats in January unless
the inducements are great but we are willing to give them the induce
ments. We are offering the entire balance of overcoats now at clear
ance prices , When you bear in mind how close we sell goods every
day in the year you will realize what our clearance prices mean. A
bona fide reduction from our regular low prices means an uncommon
opportunity to save , money. You will find it a big investment to buy an
overcoat now , even if you do not get much use out of it this winter ; it
will pay you to keep it for next winter.
CORK SOLE SHOES.
This has been a poor season for all winter shoes. We have a lot of
excellent calf shoes with genuine cork soles , which "we are forced to
sacrifice. We offer these at $2.73. Every pairguaranteed.There is
not a shoe store in the country that , will think of selling such shoes for
less than $4.60. If you have never worn any cork sole shoes , try a pair.
They are warm and comfortable and keep your feet dry.
CLEANING UP ALL AROUND.
In every one of our departments have something or other which must be clearedout
and have made extraordinary reductions. In some instances the price is cut just one-half. I
the underwear department , a lot of scarlet heavy shirts an.d drawers , worth 500 , marked
down to 25C.
In the liat department we offer a lot of good knit c'aps , in men's and boys'sizes , at 150 ;
they always sold for 3oc.
In hosiery , excellent all wool seamless socks at 150 ; every store sells them at 300.
At the glove counter you will find several lots of gloves and mitts , reduced to about half
their former prices. . ,

sition as telegraph operator , and re
mained there until Saturday last , when

tlio secret to their Msnds , and accord
ingly inudo the facts known today. The

tion und accumulated some money. The
bride and groom have taken rooms at a
hotel in Paris , anil on March 1 will move
out to the brido's farm.
