' World's C'hnrclies t nlte. WASHINGTON, May . 23. Churches in every clime ' echoed the precepts of the World's Sunday Schoojl association, which Is holding its sixth convention at Washing ton, by the observance through a common form of service of the World's Sunday School day. In this city, the scene of the convention, services were conducted in all the Protest ant churches.

' Delegates fron. the executive committee of the convention visited every Sunday school and ther were missionary rallies for boys and girls during the afternoon, and In the evening missionary meetings in more than 100 churches were addressed by ' foreign missionaries fresh from the field.

Cupid and Girl Pitted Against Irite Parents Kansas City Heiress Sent to Europe, But She Still Lores William Fairleigh of St. Joseph. "Golden rule!" lis replied, with an ex clamation. "Why, It Is stmplv common sense, simply allowing the police officers at the station to' exercise the common sense with which the Creator has endowed them Instead of having them obliged to abide by a fixed rule without the opportun ity of a shade of variation from It. "Let me give you an Illustration of what I mean. This (Saturday) afternoon a man was brought Into the station drunk, but not incapable, while I was there. He said he was a farmer from Iowa and bore every evidence of the truthfulness of his state ment. Now if that man had been held un til Monday morning, look at the nneaslness of his family, end all that could be charged against him was that when he came to Omaha to spend his money for the bene fit of the traders of the city he happened to take too much liquor. Wou! it have helped the Improvement of the man's char acter If he had been kept In a veil at the police station until Monday. I don't think It would. Consequently, I had the man put on a car and sent to the depot. Now. 1 think that man's experience with the Omaha police will have more effect, mor ally, upon his character than If he had ben Immured In a cell for two days. "This Incident will give an Idea of what police methods should be, the methods which have come to be known by the pic turesque name of the 'golden rule.' But there are difficulties and those difficulties will add to responsibility and be a test of the discretion of the officers at the police station. "For Instance, an officer picks up a man drunk on the street; it would not be right that the officer should send that man home before he brought him to the station. Sup posing that man had money and had lost it, would not the public be Inclined to sug gest that the officer had helped himself. These are among the points on which the application of the 'golden rule' must be safeguarded. "Therefore, what I mean by the golden rule in a practical aense la that a man who has worked steady throughout the week should not be placed In Jeopardy of losing his Job because on a Saturday he may have crossed the border line and ren dered himself liable to arrest, detention and appearance Monday morning under bond when ho should be at his work. The very fact of that man having to break the con tinuity of his work on Monday morning might mean he would go on a spree that would not end for the whole week. It Is a knowledge of this fact that has led me to give thought to the 'golden rule,' or rather, as I should call It, the common sense police method."

Love and the gal ties of Parts are waging a merry war for the heart of Miss Emily Keith, the Kansas City heiress, whose marriage to William Fairleigh of St. Joseph, Mo., was prevented In New York ten days ago. Miss Keith will not tell reporters how the battle Is going, but Just smiles a knowing smile that means much. She is to be seen in the shops and at resorts where leisure loving Americans gather, seemingly a happy as a lark. When Miss Keith and her sister, Mrs. Henry Koehler, also of Kansas City, reached Paris, it was understood that they had come for an indefinite stay until the young woman should forget her love ffalr. But she gave a pledge to Young Fairleigh to bo homo and marry him be fore July, so the American colony Is watch. ng tho battle of love against folly with genuine interest. , Miss Keith and Young Fairleigh are said to have first met at a social gathering In Kansas City. It was love at first sight and very ardent love, too. The' girl's fam ily objected seriously, it Is told here, chiefly because they were Roman Catho lics and the young man's mother Is a Christian Science teacher. Be that as it may, a European trip for the young wo man was quickly decided upon, and chap eroned by her sister. She was hurried to New York. Cupid had no thought of be ing so Ignomlnlously cheated, so by the time the unwilling voyager ' was an hour on her way Young Fairleigh, too, was speeding for New York. The lovers met, arranged for their marriage by the rector of the church of the Holy Cross, and then let the cat out of the bag by inviting the chaperon to witness the ceremony. Somewhat sensational scenes followed fast, resulting in the young couple break- ng away and hurrying to the house of the priest. Quickly Mrs. Kohler escorted by her brother-in-law. Captain Koehler. U. S. N., and others followed, and at the altar continued their pleading with the girl. At last she yielded and sailed away, but at the pier she waved her lover goodby and shouted: "My love cannot change I will . become your bride on June 29."

The "company" owned a supply of cheap jewelry. These articles, . In neatly ad dressed packages, were sent to the dead of other cities always "collect.". The de liveries were so timed as to reach the house after the day of the funeral, and the first thought of the survivors was that there was some sentimental value clinging to the article and the deceased. . The bill ranging from 15 to 120, was gladly paid without examination of the contents. In the case of newly-married persons the Impression was that It was a present from somebody who forgot to pay for the goods and the bill was usually paid.
