IN THE WEST Northwestern Is Heralding the Fact to the World in a Snbstnn flat Way. In the west, the farmer, stock raiser, merchant -and manufacturer are busy. their products are bringing good prices and the great agricultural belt of the upper Mississippi valley Is enjoying a de gree of prosperity that Is probably un equalled In history. The crops this year have been good, th acreage larger than ever before known and th beneficent results of the harvest far reaching enough to have a favorable effect on every man, woman and child in the region. Several expressions of opinion on th subject are being published by the pas senger, depsrtment of the Northwestern line, among them the following concern ing Nebraska's ontlook as seen by Gover nor Mickey, United States Senator Mil lard nd Edward Rosewater of the Omaha Bee. Governor ' Mickey says: "Nebraska will produce' 200,000,000 bushels of corn and over 40,000,000 bushels of wheat this year. Her total crop acreage Is 15,000.000 acres and ths value of live stock Is over 1180,000,000 Our state banka show sn Increase In de posits since June of I,01t,299 and' their reserve is SCVs per cent, where the legal requirement Is only 15 per cent. Nebraska's outlook is Indeed promising. The Stat bold an tnvlabl position In this great country of ours and her name Is no longer synonymous with drouth and poverty," Senator Millard say: "This being sn agricultural region. It la most gratifying to say th farmers are very prosperous, tiit merchants have been doing an ex cellent business this year "and th outlook for all kinds of business Is good." Mr. Rosewater says: "During my rest dene of forty years west of the- Missouri, I have witnessed ' marvelous strides of progress, but at no period within my mem ory have the people of this section been more generally prosperous and contented with existing conditions than they are at this time. The prosperity we are enjoying Is not confined to any one class, but em braces the farmer, the stock raiser, th merchant, the manufacturer and the wage- worker all alike. These gratifying evidences of substantial progress are not due to speculation in town lots or land booming, but to the expansion of th area under cultivation, th gulden harvests from th grain Aeids, and th cattle range that have enabled th Nebraska farmers. In common with th farmers of the trans- mlsslsslppl country, to pay off the roort gages, make valuable betterments and leave million of surplus on deposit In th banks. Ths prospect of future growth Is bright snd promising for Nebraska, ' a It Is for th whole great west and there are no signs that would Indicate a break In the near future." , A trip over the Northwestern line, through the rich valley of the Elkhorn, or any other part of Nebraska, la so filled with nw revelations of development and growth as to malt th statements of th governor and Senator Millard setra mild Indeed. In western - Nebraska heavy Immigration helping the stats greatly, too; much of this prosperity being due to th fact that th Northwestern Un has kept In close touch with the communities It serves and that their Interests have at all times been mutual, a well a to th fact that by mean of special low rate thousands of hom-sekr snd settlers have been at tracted to this western country. HAMLET TYPICAL OF LIFE Young- Frinoo of Denmark Affords an Illaitratioa of M'steris HIS FAILURE DUE TO LACK OF RELIGION sasanannnnnnn Knowledge of Christ the On Thing He Lacked and the Answer to HI Questions, According to Dr. ttaayle. The greatest mind and character the world ever produced Is Shakespeare, ac cording to Dr. W. A. Quayle of Kansas City, who lectured to a large audience In the First Methodist church Tuesday on Hamlet, which he termed Shakespeare's masterpiece. Dr. Quayle held that Hamlet presents all the questions that are met by any great soul In this world. Love, life, Qod, evil, duty, retribution all these were dealt with by the great genius of Shakos peare, but this great mind, which Was con structive and creative. In turn did not pos sess the genius to answer any one of these great questions which trouble every soul, truly great, and which Is seeking to know Its place and mission and duty In the world. The' genius of a Shakespeare could propound the great questions of life, but Was utterly unable to answer the questions, ths product of his great mind. In this lies the great mystery in Hamlet. A Straggle for Light. Hamlet was a contemporary of Job and Others who have been anxious about th great questions cf Ufa. All of these un dying questions, which must be met by every soul, . are snswersd by Christ. Hs came along and opened every door at which Hamlet had knocked In vain. , Christ not only opened every, one of these doors, but swung them wide open forever. Christ cam and saw sin and conquered It. He was tempted of th devil and th finch, as was Hamlet, and cams off victor. Hamlet made anxious and soul-rending in quiry for answers to those questions and, failing to find an answer, that would satisfy his soul life, he waa dead to the world. Hamlet was trying to find an ethical basis for conduct or behavior. And so has every soul living today. The tribulations and sor rows of life, the reaching out after baby fingers that have departed, the plea .and the prayers for the return of the loved ones, the tragedies of life with all that they mean all these questions are th Hamlets that each and every soul has to deal with. Hamlet was not merely a creature of Action. He Is a personality that comes Into each life as a question mark, and the soul that Is concerned about Its duty and its proper place and mission In the world must meet Its Hamlets and must answer the questions and meet the responsibilities Im posed or dl broken in spirit or leave s wasted life. Hamlet was lovable, brave, neighborly, kind hearted, atralghforward, true, and combined all thoaa characteristics which go to make up a man, but when resistless woes cam upon him like an avalanche, and then seemed to multiply and Increase, and when he could find no single ray of light, and when hope had failed him, and when he had groped continuously and hope lessly and helplessly In the dark, as it were, for an answer to the questions which' were burning and consuming him then ' It was that he went under. But in so doing he was not a traitor to duty. He was not dishonorable. . He did not lose his bravery. He became careworn and haggard, he lost the lightheadedness, the . brightness and buoyancy of life. He was defeated because he could not find an avenue of escape; from the unseen there came no answer tothe questions which preyed upon his soul life. - All Mast Face the Question. Hamlet is not merely a theoretical propo sition. The questions which bothered him will continue to grapple at everybody's throat as long as time shall endure. Life It salt was Hamlet's great problem, and he failed to solve It because he was without hop In Ood, who is ths author and the giver of life. According to Dr. Quayle, no big, or full, or useful, or noteworthy life ever was or ever will be lived without having walked along the same path that Hamle. trod, and Insofar as It finds a happy answer to ths questions which weigh upon It, will It be able to rise up from the weight which op presses It snd strive for that which .the future will then hold out. Hamlet wanted to do his duty to the full and he could not even find that duty. This, It waa held, constituted the tragedy of his life. He died speaking to Horatio, his friend, and uttering these words: "Present me and my cause Bright to the unsatisfied." Scientist. H knows that "the effectual, J fervent prayer or a righteous man svalleth much." even the heeling of the sick and the reformation of the sinner. Instead of "losing our love of Qod. of prayer snd communion" snd sympathy for our fellow man, such love and sympathy are enhanced a thousand fold, for Christian Science teaches us that Ood Is Infinite Di vine Love and sends neither sin nor disease upon man, but brings the sweet assurance that nothing but aln is to be punished or lost. Without further comment upon points mentioned by Rev. Gray, w beg to submit a few brief passages from "Science and Health," which will clearly define the posi tion maintained by Christian Science on the subject of sin and its effects upon th human mind and body. "A corrupt mind is manifested In a cor rupt body, Lust, malice and all sorts of evil are diseased beliefs and you can only deetroy them by destroying the wicked motives which produce them. If the evil Is over In the repentant mortal mind, while its effects still remain on th Individual, you can remove thla disorder only as God's law Is fulfilled and reformation cancels ths crime. "Healing the sick and reforming the sin ner are one and the same thing In Chris tian Science Both cures require the same method and are Inseparable in Truth. Hatred, envy and dishonesty make a man sick, and neither material medicine nor Mind can help him permanently, even in body, unless they make htm better morally and so deliver him from his destroyer. The basic error Is mortal mind. The heat of hatred. Inflaming brutal propensities, ths Indulgence of evil motives and alms, will mske any man (who Is above the very low est type of manhood) a hopeless sufferer. They consume the body with th fires of hell. "Christian Science commands man to master th propensities, to hold hatred In abeyance ' with kindness, to conquer lust with chastity, revenge with, charity and to overcome deceit with honesty. Choke thee) errors in their early stages If you would not cherish an army of conspirators against hfalth, happiness and success. They will deliver you to the Judge, the arbiter of truth against error. The Judge will deliver you to Justice snl ths sentence of the moral law will be executed upon mortal mind and body. Both will b manacled until the last farthing la paid until you have bal anced your account with Ood. 'Whatso ever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.' This Is sin's necessity to destroy Itself and so yield at last to the government of God, wherein Is no power to sin." (Pp. 404, 5.) CLARENCE W.

Like Banquo's ghi.jt, the Knight murder mystery will not down, another chapter having been added last night, when C. A. Baker of 1142 North Twentieth street and his brother-in-law, Sam Collins of 2421 Hamilton street, drove up to the Knight house on North Twenty-third street and carted away the household effects without authority. At 11 o'clock the police received a tele phone message from soma one, who rang off before his name could be secured, stating that furniture was being removed from - the Knight residence. Detectives Ferris and McCarthy .and Officers Cullen and Baldwin were detailed to look Into the matter. When they,-arrived at the house, one load of furniture had been re moved to Baker's house, and the balc.nce of the goods was on' the. wagon ready to be hauled away. . uv : t Baker, who Is a teamstar In the employ of the Board of Education and the moving spirit, literally and figuratively, In ; tba DEFENDS CHRISTIAN SCIENCE Clarence W.

' Any person who has not studied Its text-book nor prao tlced Christian Science hea'.lng successfully li In no position to explain what Christian Science Is or Is not. Instead of aaylng nothing about sin which we are accused of our text-book, "Science and Health, With Key to the Bcriptures,' by Mary Baker G. Eddy, has so much to say upon the subject that. Instead of fur nlshlng a cloak for sin and leading "to J1 sorts of depravity and crime," as alleged by our critic, the evil-doer finds llttls con solation In its teachings until he la' fully ready to forsake his sins and to lead a purs life, a. life of dally prayer and fasting and communion with God, good.

When a laxative is needed the remedy which is given to them to cleanse and sweeten and strengthen the internk." organs on which it acts, should be such as physicians would satiction, because its component parts are known to be wholesome and the remedy itself free from every objectionable quality. The one remedy which physicians and parents, well-informed, approve and recommend and which the Utile ones enjoy, because of its pleasant flavor, its gentle action and its beneficial effects, is Syrup of Figs and for the same reason it is the only laxative which should be used by fathers and mothers. Syrup of Figs is the only remedy which acts gently, pleasantly and naturally without griping. Irritating, or nauseating and which cleanses th system effectually, without producing that constipated habit which results from the use of the old-time cathartics and modern imitations, and against which the children should be so carefully guarded. If you would have them grow to manhood and womanhood, strong, healthy and happy, do not give them medicines, when medicines are not needed, and when nature needs assistance in the way of a laxative, give them only the simple, pleasant and gentle Syrup of Figs. . Its quality is due not only to the excellence of the combination of the laxative principles of plants with pleasant aromatic syrups and juices, but also to our original method of manufacture and as you value the health of the little ones, do not accept any of the substitutes which unscrupulous deal ers sometimes offer to Increase their profits.
