In eplto of the drizzling rain n fair audl-
cnco was present at the First Baptist
church yesterday morning to hear Dr.
Proper , president of the Baptist Homo Mis-
Elon society , talk on the subject of Baptist
inlfefilona. Just before the sermon Mrs. Phtlcs
sang "Babylon. " Dr. Proper took for his
text , "Behold the Lord , thy God , hns set
the land before you ; gn In nnd possess It , "
and spoke In part substantially as fol
"It was with these words that the Lord
addressed the children of Israel as they
came to the borders of the promised land ,
which they were about to enter after their
weary jears of wandering In the desert.
Entering this land tlioyworo Instructed to
take possession of it In the name ot the
Lord ; to fill the land with His worship nnd
In place of the Idolatry that then prevailed
to erect the altar of sacrifice. God made
that people many wonderful promises of
the land ho wns giving them. Ho Insisted
only on ono great thing that they should
not forget Him In their prosperity. Wo
know the history of their prosperity ; wo
know of their later decline , when they had
become possessed of the Idea that that pros
perity wns the work of themselves alone
without the assistance of the Lord. Wo
know of their degradation nnd downfall.
"To mo America Is the promised land of
today. It Is God's gift to Christian Amer
icans. Flvo hundred years before Columbus
discovered this continent the Norsemen
landed on our pastern coasts , but It was
not God's purpose that they should remain
there. Later we see thai little band of
worshipers on the Mayflower making n sol
emn compact to form n government for
the glory of God. Then God gave us this
land. Our work ns Christians Is to take
possession of It for His honor and Glory.
So long as wo forget not Him we shall pros
per. Wo arc a mighty nation among the
nations of the world. Wo have Inherited
the better things of the past nnd have
grasped and are utilizing things of the pres
ent. God hns poured the wealth of the earth
into the country with a purpose. Ho means
that this nation shall become n mighty fac
tor In the work of the world's evangelization.
This Is Ills purpose and It was for this
that wo have been allowed to grow nnd
The speaker reviewed the work of the
Baptist Homo Mission society since Its or
ganization sixty-seven years ngo. John M.
Peck was the pioneer missionary of the
church , locating In St. Louis In 1817. Ho
was shortly followed by others , until today
the Baptist church has 1,100 missionaries
throughout North America preaching the
gospel and teaching Christ crucified. In
sixty-seven years the mission has Increased
so that today It Is preached In twenty lan
guages. Ho spoke of the mission work that
was being done In New England among the
French Canadians who are Invading that sec
tion. The work among the Portuguese In
the marble quarries of Now Hampshire and
Vermont was reviewed and he closed with
nn earnest appeal for bettor support of
the mission work on the part of the church.
KKFISCT OK CHIUST'S ASCENSION.
CupHtnnc to Illn Life , HotiiulliiK it Out
Rev. Luthep M. Kuhns delivered nn elo
quent sermon Sundny morning nt the Grace
Lutheran church on "A Changless Christ. "
Ho chose for his text Luke xxlv , 51 , "And
as Ho blessed them Ho was parted from
them and was carried up Into heayen. "
The Introductory was devoted to directing
the attention of the congregation to the fact
that Christ parted from His rtlnclples with a
blessing and to a comparison of His ascen
sion with the translation of Enoch nnd
Elijah. As Ho rises from the earth the
disciples stand gazing upwards at His dis
appearing form. Presently ns a cloud In-
torvcncB nothing more can bo seen of the
rising Savior. Ho likened this cloud to the
fog which conceals objects from view nnd
said Christ la separated from UB today only
by a vapor.
Ho said It Is well to consider the effect
Christ's ascension had upon His life's work.
It completed his resurrection or waa the
Amen to that resurrection. The great
miracle of His life lay not In the ascension ,
nut In His rising from the dead. The ascen
sion Into heaven added the capstone , to Ills
life , rounding It out completely. The speaker
related how Christ was concerned through
out His life In man's welfare. From the
performance of the first miracle of turning
water Into wine to the withering of the
fig tree or the raising of Lazarus Ho was
ministering unto the people.
Hov. Kuhns said one of the most beauti
ful paraWcB related In the now testament
was that of the prodigal son. How glad
the father was to see his uoy returning , not
withstanding the fact that ho had wasted
his substance In riotous living. How differ
ent It would have been had the son gone
nwny on a nonlo mission. His return then
would have been welcomed all the more
cordially by the father. Ho said Christ
must have looked forward to Ills reunion
with the Father , to .His return to the
Father's house. His homecoming meant
something just ns the homecoming of the
hoys from 'Manila will mean something to
the thousands of parents nnd sweethearts
who nro waiting for them.
Ho said the purpose God had to accom
plish In the ascension of Christ must not
ho overlooked. Ho was going to take his
iplaco at the right hand of God ns the de
fender nnd ndvocato of those who bcllovo
in Him , Ho also returns to Ills father's
house that Ho may exorcise dominion. The
last enemy Ho 'will destroy Is death. As
men have dominion on earth over the fields ,
or In the city , BO Christ will rule all things
until every knee shall bow before Him.
As General Otis demands submission by
Agulnaldn and Grant compelled Lee to l > ow
to the will of the government so Jesus de
mands the homage of all hearts. Each 'nao
l > ougbt 'with a price and Ho Is entitled to
llov. Kuhns said In closing that another
reason why it was necessary for Christ to
ascend Into heaven wns that He might send
the spirit upon Hl disciples and not leave
them comfortless. At the tlmo of the cruci
fixion the disciples forgot Ills words that
He .would rise from the dead. They did not
liave half the belief of the Jews , 'who wore
afraid His words would , bo fulfilled. The
world was never so dark to them ns at that
time. Their three years' association with
Him had not convinced thpm ot his res
urrection. While they were still desolate
from His death the physical man required
attention and they wont fishing. They tolled
all night without success and when morning
came the Savior reappeared unto them. It
was the coming ot hope and the fulfillment
of the promise of the cndurement of the
spirit. The ascension later completed the
prophesy and the spirit came upon them.
It brought the unseen world nearer to them
and they saw It as a. reality.
IJACII OMJ HAS A OIFT OP OOI1.
We Should Unc Our ( llfln for the Riuiil
nf Oilier * .
Yesterday morning the pulpit at All Saints'
church was occupied by Ilcv. A. C. Marsh of
Central City , who Is also ono of the canons
of Trinity cathedral , this city. The scimon
waa listened to with close attention nnd ap
parently was appreciated by the congrega
tion , which was large considering the
wretched condition ot the weather. The text
was I Peter , Iv , 10 : "As every man hath
received the gift , so minister the same ono
to another as good stewards of the manifold
grace of God. "
In discussing his topic Rev. Marsh said :
"Tho work ot Christ for our salvation was
not begun and completed In any ono act.
Wo cannot say of any one ot the stages In
the earthly llfo of our Lord that at that
particular time our salvation was accom
plished. From His Incarnation to Ills as
cension His ono end and objost wns the
working out of our salvation and every net
of His wns a manifestation of His purpose-
wonderful events which we have been com
memorating < the death , the resurrection and
the ascension of our Lord arc Isolated
facts , but all contribute to the one object
and purpose of Ills Incarnation , the making
us partakers of Uivlno nature ; the filling
us with the fullness of God ; the making us
temples of the Holy Ghost.
" 'Being to the right hand of God , exalted , '
says St. Peter , 'and receiving from the
Father the promised Holy Ghost. Ho hath
shed this which wo both see nnd hear. '
'When Ho ascended up on high , ' says St.
Paul , 'He gave gifts unto men. '
"Now of such gifts bestowed by our as
cended Lord wo are reminded In the portion
of the scripture selected as the cplstlo for
today and to the right use of such gifts St.
Peter exhorts us In the words chosen for
the text ot this Ecrmon. Ho assumes that
every person has some gift from God and
He requires we use this gift for the good of
others. The language of the text takes for
granted that every one has been endowed
with some power and qualifications not aris
ing from his own nature , but Infused Into
him by the spirit and grace of God. All our
capacities , opportunities and qualifications
for good are blessings received received of
the manifold grace of God received to be ac
counted for to their Giver. All the gifts
with which we may bo endowed are bless
ings. As every ono hath received his gift ,
there is Implied what St. Paul asserts when
ho says , for the purpose ot putting down
the vnln and selfish disposition of the mem
bers of the church at Corinth , who treated
their peculiar gifts ns something of their
own , to bo used nccordlng to their own will
and Inclination : 'Who maketh thee to differ
from another , and what hath thou which
'thou hath not received. ' And this Includes
all our endowments , not only these which
nro ours through the direct providence of
God , but also what wo call our natural
"But then , as all of our endowments are
received , so nro they received of 'tho mani
fold grace of God , ' for the grace of God
may bo said to display Itself In as many
different ways ns the flowers nnd fiults of
the earth , with which the great wisdom < > f
God tias blessed and beautified tbo world.
And all of us have some gift of God , while
no two ot us receive exactly the same In
kind or dcgiee.
"St. Paul , enlarges on this when ho says :
'There Is diversity of gifts , but the same
spirit , and there are differences of adminis
tration , r > the same Lord ; and there are
diversities oi operation , but It Is the same
God which workcth all In all. "
"The second point made Is that we should
use our gifts , whatever they may be , for
the good of others ; nil our ndvnntnges nnd
upportunltles must be used ; the funds put
Into our charge must bo administered ; wo
must neither misuse nor neglect them ; wo
must not appropriate them to ourselves
through selfishness , nor withhold them from
others through Indifference or neglect.
"There is a law of endless propagation
In mind as well ns In matter. Scientists
tell us that every slnglo vibration mode by
every single utterance In the air around us
propagates Itself over the wide expanse ot
the world. So It Is with our words and
actions ; nothing Is lost ; nothing Is without
Its effect. Let us have faith In divine pres
ence. 'In the morning sow the seed and
In the evening withhold not thy hand , for
thou knowest not whether shall prosper
either this or that , or whether they both
shall bo alike good. ' And then , as everyone
has received a gift , so shall wo be ministerIng -
Ing the same for the Ixmeflt of others na
good stewards of the manifold graces ot

eilNNed Ii ) llev. C. II. Allen.
Although he declared that ho Is not a
spiritualist by any means , Rev. C. B. Allen
of the Beth-Eden Baptist church yesterday
morning stated from his pulpit that ho was
sure that the Interior of the church edifice
In which his congregation was sitting wns
filled with angel spirits , many of whom
formerly occupied mortal body upon earth.
He further nnsertcd that thcso angel forms
fill the air continually In the mission of
guiding Christians In the affairs of llfo and
of protecting them.
Huv. Allen made this declaration In the
course of n sermon upon the "Nature and
Ministry of Angels. " In his analysis of the
angel forms and spirits ho gave It as his
belief that they nro clothed In some sort
ot body which la at the present tlmo un
knowable. As proof of this ho cited many
Instances of the appearance on earth of nn-
gcls In the old hlblo and scriptural , days and
of visions that have como to Christians In
moro recent times. But while ho believed
all this , the preacher said that ho has but
llttlo faith In spiritualism , as It Is made up
largely of humbuggery.
The preacher declared , also , that these
angcU are with Christians continually.
They nro of transccndant glory nnd possess
great power nnd can therefore become most
potent factors In the dally life of mortals.
That they do frequently minister to the
needs of Christians the preacher had no
doubt whatever nnd ho asserted that every
one could recall some case In point In their
own lives when they reached tome conclu
sion to which they were brought through
spiritual Influence. This assistance may
come , also , through the person of some
friend or oven a stranger. In thin min
istering by the angels the preacher main-

talned that Christians could flnd nn example )
to follow on earth. He said :
"Tho Tiest people and the most angollo
on earth are these who arc possessed ot
utter forgclfulnrtK of self and go about
In the service of others. They do not do
their ministering by proxy. They are not
those who glvo a $5 bill for foreign mis
sions nnd then think they have performed
nil their obligations. They giro themselves
unselfishly to the service of others. "
In the course of the sermon llov. Allen
Raid that the spiritual angels do the bidding
of ( Hod and worship the Lord tn a tcmplo
that "Is not made with hands. " While
dwelling upon this he again pointed out a
lesson to Christians upon earth and par
ticularly to Baptists In the following way :
"I wish that Christians would follow more
closely the hint , or rather the Instruction ,
that Is given In the scriptures. Our church
Is open an hour or nn hour and n half on
Sunday morning nnd another couple of hours
In the evening. The doons are locked then
and are not opeuod again until Wednes
day evening , -when they are kept open an ;
other hour or RO , Then they are shut tight
again until the following Sunday. The
tnmplo of Dod should always bo open , eo
that the followers of the Lord may com
mune with Him In His own tabernacle.
Our Catholic friends can teach us a. lesson
of love and service In this respect. Their
doors are always wide open and thereby
they minister very greatly to the spiritual
needs of the members of their church. "

DIxiMiNNPil liy Il * v. Sir. Hcrrhitf.
At the First Congregational church last
night ttev. Hubert C. Herring delivered the
first of a series of sermons on topics of
national Interest. Ills Initial subject was
"Our Responsibilities In the Orient , " nnd
from this he spoke vigorously In defense
of the policy that has been pursued by the
administration. In beginning ho admitted
that nil men could not see tbo situation
through the same pair of eyes , but explained
that his sentiments represented merely his
Proceeding , the speaker said that the last
two or throe years have furnished a scries
ot events forcing us to consider the Impor
tance of our foreign relations. The Nica
ragua canal nnd other matters , followed
by the war with Spain and the present
dimculty with the Filipinos , have brought
up nn old question In a now light. They
have compelled us to coin two new words
expansion and Imperialism but we should
remember that such terms do not always
accurately describe the thing that they as
sume to represent. They are apt to be dis
torted to servo .the . purposes of personal or
Hev. Mr. Herring declared that these
events will have a greater bearing on the
future of this country nnd of the world
than any of us dream. The learned men
down cast who have been busy criticising
the administration nnd telling how the war
should be conducted In the Philippines , nro
right In one lespect , and that consists
In their appreciation of the significance of
recent events. Wo all ngrco that the man
who wants to plant the United States flag
all over the world nnd multiply armies to
keep a vast colonial empire in subjection
does not know what freedom Is. But wo
nro not fighting for aggrandizement. We
have not that kind of a president , nnd we
are not that sort of a people. It Is usually
fair to believe that the man who sits In the
president's chair Is trying to do what he
thinks Is right , nnd ono of the elements of
our future safety must bo In having con
fidence In the rulers to whom we have en
trusted the conduct of our national affairs.
Mr. Herring declared that he did not be-
llovo that Agulnaldo Is the Oeorgo Wash
ington of the Orient , nor that Agonclllo Is
the Benjamin Franklin of a Philippine re
public. The Filipinos do not know what
they want , nnd they would not know how
to get it If they did. But then It Is asked ,
"Why are we over there ? " To this Rev.
Mr. Herring replied that there are 8,000,000
people In the Islands who have been plun
dered and oppressed by Spain for centuries.
By a chain of events that no ono could
control wo found ourselves In possession of
Manila. There arose a necessity that some
strong nation should step In and control
elements that were unable to control them
It was also contended that n declaration
at this time that the natives will bo given
self-government as soon as they are ready
for It would 'bo ' a prolific source of Insur
rection. The Filipino politicians would un
doubtedly consider themselves ready for It
long before they -were In fact.
In discussing the opposition to the ap
parent present policy of the government
the speaker said that much of It resulted
from the fears of people who regret the
cost and from these who contend t-hat the
natives are not worth saving. He declared
that duty does not cease to be n duty because
It is costly , and nations , like Individuals ,
must seek the welfare of the race. These
who are anxious to maintain the national
Integrity , but are reluctant to make any
sacrifice In the Interests of humanity , are
like the man who asked "Am I my brother's
keeper ? " From this point the discourse
consisted of nn earnest effort to show that
the interference of this country In the
Orient Is n duty Imposed In the Interests
of civilization and religion , and that it
would be national atheism to refuse a duty
that comes as a distinct call from God.

The rain rnuped a very limited attend
ance at the First Christian church yesterday
morning , and 'tho ' pastor , Uev. 1) , D. Burt ,
spoke very briefly. His discourse referred
to the duty of Christians to glvo freely of
their tlmo awl money lo the work ot the
church and ho vigorously condemned the
tendency among soma church members to
act grudgingly In thcso particulars. Ho con
tended that It Is a paramount duty of pro-
fosBlng Christians to do everything In tlielr
power to promote the Interests of the cause.
Lack of enthusiasm in this respect Is ? e-
sponhlblo for much of the stagnancy that Is
sometimes apparent In church work. It fre
quently occurs that people who readily pay
their taxes and contribute to every worldly
enterprise are reluclant to glvo a dollar to
ward the cause that Is of the first Im
portance. Ho urged his hearers not to
render moro freely unto Caesar the things
that are Caesar's than to God the tblnKS
that are God's. All the talents and material
prosperity that men have and experience nro
given by God and should bo devoted to Ills
service. Consequently His cause should Imvo
fie benefit of every ability that He has glvon
to His servants nwl some part of the mate
rial wealth that Ho has entrusted lo their
keeping belongs properly to Him.

It was a few minutes before 12 o'clock
Saturday night that Judge Baker delivered
his Instructions to the Jury in the KBIT mur
Thrco hours later the Jury agreed upon a
verdict of murder In the second degree and
then went to sloop.
At 8 o'clock Sunday morning Judge Ba
ker , having been notified , came to the court
room nnd received the verdict. There were
only a few persons present In addition to
the court , the jury , the defendant nnd the
attorneys. When the verdict was announced
Kerr evinced no emotion. The Jury wns dis
charged nnd Kcrr wns sent back to his cell
In the county jail.
The punishment for murder In the second
end degree Is Imprisonment for not less thnn
ten yenrs or for llfo , nt the discretion of
The trlnl of John Kcrr , which occupied
two weeks , wns for the murder of his
fathcr-ln-law , John Held , at Valley , In this
county. Kcrr's wife had secured a divorce
and Kerr had attempted to bring about a
reconciliation , but failed. In the course of
nn Interview In Omaha with his fatbor-iu-
law the two men got Into a fight and Kcrr
was rather severely punished.
A few days later Kerr , smarting under
the whipping ho had lecelvcd and believing
Held had prevented the desired reconcilia
tion with Mrs. Kerr , went to Valley nnd
with a double-barreled shotgun walked into
the kitchen of John Reid's hotel and shot
Hold , killing him Instantly. Ho then at
tempted to kill himself , but failed , and upon
being landed In Jail made a second unsuc
cessful effort to commit sulcldo by slashIng -
Ing his throat with a knife.
At the trial Kerr depended upon the plea
of Insanity , caused by his domestic troubles.
Considerable evidence was Introduced upon
this point nnd no doubt It had Its weight
with the Jury , as Is shown by Its verdict of
murder in the second degree.

The first hailstorm of the season de
scended on Omaha Jufcl before 10 o'clock
last night and for a quarter of nn hour the
Ixmibnrdment 'was Incessant. Chunks of Ice
nn big ns horfio chest mils danced on the
( skylights , cracked exposed windows and rat
tled on the pavements like volleys of musk
etry. Luckily the missiles were not heavy
enough to do extensive damage. A fpw
plnteglass windows In The Oco building nnd
other downtown blocks were cracked , but
the flkyllghts withstood the attack nnd even
the globco on the street lights were not
damaged to any great extent. What llttlo
wind there was drove the hall toward the
fiouth nnd many of the north windows In
the residence districts were broken. A
heavier w Ind would have multiplied the
damage , but ns the tempest poured almost
directly earthwards comparatively few windows
dews were exposed to Its direct attack.
As far im could tic learned Inst night the
damage to trees nnd shrubbery was com
paratively slight. At the exposition grounds
some of the shrubbery was slightly lorn ,
but It Is not "believed " that much of It U

of the greenhouses , whose light glnrs roofs
were too frail to successfully contend
against the elements , nnd many of the panes
were knocked out In the short period during
which the Ptonn raged.
The greatest Inconvenience wns ex
