HARFORD UNITED
By Rev. M. 0, McLaughlin, Pastor.
The ch t Nebraska annual conference of
the I'nlted Brethren In Christ held at
Qresham, Neb.. In September, 1W5, voted
to take steps to establish a church In
Omaha to co-operate with other denomina
tions In the work of city evnngellzatlon.
The question of finding a man to under
take the work was delegated to Bishop
. M. Weckley, D. D of KaiisnM Cty
I unii icv, . n. uynac, presiuinf elder or
the conference at that time. These men
began correspondence with the writer,
then In his senior year at Union Dlbllcal
seminary, Dayton, O.
After several letters had passed I
agreed to come tp Omaha on June 1. ISiW.
and undertake the enterprise. From June
1 to November 1. I made a canvass of the
city, finding seven places where ' I
deemed a church' might bo located to ad
vantages, but finally settled on the
Unlversallst church building nt Nine
teenth nnd Iothrop streets, ihlch hail
stood vacant tot nine years- nnd- was
known to the hoys of the community ns
"the haunted church." My Judgment
was concurred In by the bishop and elder
and tho building was purchased Novem
ber 12. 1W7, from the Unlversallst general
convention for $0,000.
Another V,W0 was raised to put tho
building In repair and provide furnish
ings, and an average of J3.000 a year has
been expended In constructive work in
the city for the four years the church
has been organized. I raised the money
for repairs among tho United Brethren
farmers of the state. The local con
gregation lias reduced the Indebtedness
oa the building to .m. The pastor did
part of tho repair work himself during
the winter of 1907-8 and the first service
was held May 24 1908, A Sunday school
of six members was organized, three of
whom were members of the pastor's
family. After n few weeks thirteen per
sons became members of the church nnd
constituted tho charter members. The net
membership Is now 12-1. Two years ago
the church was rcdedicated by Bishop
Weekley and wm named In honor of Mrs.
Lillian n. Harford for the great work
sho has done in the United Brethren
denomination for the last forty years.
At present there Is a men's brotherhood
of forty-three members, a woman's class
or forty-one members, a women's mis
sionary society of thirty members nnd
a Sunday school enrollment of 200.
Early In the spring of 1909 several of
the members of the athletic team of the
Lothrop school asked for tho use of the
social room of the church to hold their
practice meets. Tho privilege was readily
granted, but the request awoke- tho pastor
to a sense of tho need of a community
gymnasium. Plans V-ere Immediately laid
for the construction of a gymnasium
under the auditorium of the church. The
boys wdrked after school and the men
evenings in excavating WO ynrds of earth
nnd -wheeling It out ' of tho basement
windows In wheelbarrows. The brick
work was dono by tho men of the church
and the floor wa laid In ono evening
oy tno carpenter force of E. a. Smith.
contractor. For the last two winter
four gymnasium classes a week have
been held. The first winter tho work of
direction was done by O. W. Wagcnseller
and Miss Besa E. rtoss. Last winter In
tho absence of Mr. Wagetreeller, who had
moved to Fremont, the classes ivere con
ducted by Mr. Hcdlund and Mr. Noble
of tho Young Men's Christian association
under the direction of Mr. Maxwell,
physical director of the Young Men's
Christian association. Mr. Wagenscller
has returned to Omaha and baB tnken
the leadership of the boys In the Sunday
school and will assist In the gymnasium
work this winter.
To provide for tho summer, sports tho
Church equipped a playground south or
tho church, building for tennis, basket
ball, volley ball and horseshoe games, as
well as a merry-go-round for children.
Electric lights were provided for ovenlng
games, and tho grounds havo been used
with enthusiasm and Kpod results for the
last two summers. This summer a swim
ming class was conducted every Tuesday
evening during July and August by
Jesso Mapes nnd E p. Smith, workers of
tho congregation. Tho attendance has
ranged from twenty to fifty nnd n num
ber of people have learned to swim as

LONG BEACH. Neb., Dec. CT.-To the
Editor of The Bee: As a stockman in
terested In the stock business of No
braska, I desire to sound a note of warn
ing to my fellow beef producers of our
state. It Is a condition and not a theory
which confronts us. Sixty or 65 per cent
of the population of the United States
still live on fsrms and are directly In
terested In the price of provision. Any
assault upon the price of provisions,
therefore, will affect directly and ' ad
versely at least 65 per cent of the popu
lation of the United States and Indirectly
a far greater number.
We havo always believed and proclaimed
that our government should be so run
as to confer the greatest good on the
greatest number. If this bo true, then
the producers should oppose with all their
power the contemplated reduction by
congress or the tariff on agricultural
products and provisions. Congress will
convene In extra, session Immediately
upon adjournment of the present con
gress.
With one exception the present ways
nnd means committee of the house will
hold over. They will hold public meet--;
Ings through January, giving two to four
days to each schedule, 1 am told. The
schedule on agricultural products and
provisions hearing la set down for Jan
uary 30, and the stock growers of our
state should certainly be represented
there. The final tet will, of course, be
In congress, but the fight will be begun
In the committee.
Already the manufacturers, the citrus
fruit growers of California and every
one Interested aro organizing 'for the
fight. The stockmen and farmers should
do the same thing. A tremendous pres
sure will be brought to bear upon con
gress from the manufacturing centers of
the east to reduce the price of farm
produce. Their arguments should be met
by the producers, who can easily show
that everything considered prices ot
agricultural products are not abnormally
high and It Is not in the Interest of the
majority of our people to reduce them.
The campaign Is now over, politics
should b forgotten and the producer
should unite In solid phalanx to protect
llieBeesLeltrBox
Sr m sH
tbclr Interests. F. M. Cl'RRIE.
A-
BRETHREN CHURCH
welt as had n good time during the sum
mer. Besides having organized and had
charge of lt) hoy scouts for the last two
yenrs, we have a secret organization of
older boys known ns the Knights of St.
Paul, who meet once a week for Initia
tions nnd Indoor sports.
Tho membership of the church Is com
posed largely of young peoplo who- ate
encrgetld, and aggressive. Financial limi
tations alone have kept them from ac
complishing far more In the city than
they have done up to this time. Begin-'
ntng nltli no member, no building and
Xia money four years ngo, they have ex
ponded over H2.O00 In constructive church
work in thb city, havo put J8.0W In Im
provements on their buildings and
grounds and have reduced the chtirclv
debt to $3,734. No extended effort has
been mnde to secure financial help from
tho business men of the city, but we aro
now planning to see a few men of means,
and lay the work befoie them, hoping to
raise the Indebtedness and secure Ju.WJ
for the purchase of u parsonage. Our
greatest hindrance In carrying on social
work has been lack of fund.". Wo figure
that with a parsonage to live In we will
save ?X a month houee rent and put It
Into social and relief work. With the
church debt raised the pastor will have
several hours a week more time to dc
voto to hla boys' organizations.
v This pastor believes that the church
peoplo should throw themselves Into the
social, Industrial and material Improve
ments of tho community as well as the
spiritual and moral. He recognizes the
need of the whole man. Ho holds that
people do not need crltlctcm so much as
direction and help; that If wholesome
amusements aro provided for young peo
plo they will themselves avoid question
able places and practices; that only the
love of money Is the root of eVIl, and
that money .'tself rightly used Is a great
blessing. He prays that people may
muko lots of money and have the wis
dom to expend It wisely. Ho believes
that Omaha has a great future and ex
pects to remain here and help develop
that future.
My first pastorate was at Panama,
Neb., where I had taught school for
neven years. I preached there three
years, and feeling the need of a broader
preparation for life work, went to Day
ton, O., for a three years' theological
course. During the first two years 1
paid my way by painting during the
doing the Janitor work of
r,hnnl durinc the winter. The third I
year I preached for the Presbyterians
and carried on my studies, graduating In
Mav, 1907, and came directly to Omaha
to engage In the new work here.
Among others who have helped make
the United Brethren church what It Is
In Omaha are: Bishop W. M. Weekley of
Kansas City. Mo.; Mrs. W. P. Harford.
Dr. H. W. Allwlne, Dr. B. K. Marble, D.
K. Glltcsple. J. Good, E. O. Smith.
LcRoy Matoush, B. F. and A. W.
Bohrcn. H. H. Smith. I U Halt. Jesse
Mapas. C. G. Edmonds," F. U Mouer. F.
J. Hale and A. H. Olmstead. These men
and others contribute mono' just as will
lngly for playgrounds and gymnasium
equipment as they do for Sunday school
supplies and pastor's salary
One condition that has facilitated the
work of tlio church Is that perfect
harmony las prevailed from the start.
The members are considerate, of tho
opinions and belief of each other. Tho
pastor has been careful to encourage no
ono to become a member of of the church
except such as he believes to bo morally
upright nnd of good report before God
and men.
This fall shower baths will bo Installed
In the gymnasium and the outside play

Aurora Sun: Were it possible to photo
graph the splendid weather that Ne-j
braska has been enjoying the last twoj
weeks, wo would have a picture made for
each of our deluded friends who went to
California this winter In order to escape
this climate. Our friends bought a gold
brick that's nil. California never pro
duced such weather as we have had up
to this time.
Winslde Tribune; We believe tho newly
elected legislature Is entitled to Uie In
crease in salary as fixed by the late
amendment and should get the additional
sum, which Is yet too small. This belief
of ours is not founded on any knowledge
of law particularly, but bocauso Governor
Aklrich thinks tho other way and he Is
nlways wrong on everything, so itr is
safe to copper his Judgment.
Wayne Herald: U is reported that
Mono Warner of the Lyons Mirror will
be n candidate for the postoftlce at that
place, believing he has tolled hard enough
in the democratic vineyard to entitle him
to material reward. In times past ho
has consigned, republican editors, oim
after another, to the torments of hadca,
and It was nn nrduous and perspiring task.
Therefore, the postoff Ice plum Is the least j
tho new administration could reasonably i
expect to givo him.
Wood River Interests: About a, week
ago a policeman in Grand Island was run
over by a frisky auto and had both legs
broken., etc. Fust driving litis been a
regular stunt In that city, but now tho
policemen and the city council say that
the law of the road six miles in the
business portion or twelve In tho resi
dence district will be strictly enforced.
If speeding autos must run over people
It Is Just as well that they run over those
who have tho enforcement of the law in
their own hands.
David City Banner: Kach month the
Banher office is visited by several travel-
ing men whose business It ia to sell paper
to ino pnniing iraue. hiobh men rrceive
handsome salaries and their hotel bills
and traveling expenses are necessarily
large. We seldom buy of them, having
found It more convenient to deal directly"
with the houte. Yet in every purchase
w make, a handsome percentage Is
added to provide for the selling charge,
and we help to pay these men's wages
whether we make use of them or not. In
solving the question of the high cost of
living this la an Item that should not be
o erlooked.
EDITORIAL SNAPSHOTS.
New York World: What degree of
"respect for the courts" Is shown by
governors who pardon or commute the
sentences of convicts, mostly life-termers,
In batches of eighty, "with the compli
ments of the Christmas season?"
Springfield Republican: It will take
some work for the United States marshal
to put n. paper wrapper stamped "col
ored by sweating" on each, of tho 410,000
oranges seized nt Chicago, which nrc to
bo sold by order of Judge I-andls and

to- cut It with. Wc also sell Mexico

Springfield Republican:. Mr.lxeb has
been a good wntchddg for ' Undo Sam

may not be another mutter; wo nre not

THE PARTING GUEST.
Kdmund C. Stednmn In the Century
Wherjj are the good things promised me
By the Old Yenr Unit's dying?
And what care I how (II he be
Who was so given to lying?
A comely youth, ho sought my door
And tarrled'tlll his locks were hoar;
A fair and foul, capricious guest.
Who swore to give mo of his best;
Who pledged hlmnelf a true ypnrr
But ho wns then tho New Year.
Where nro the silver nnd tho gold
Ere now should fill my wallet7
What mean theso scanty clothes and old,
This attic room nnd pallet?
Tho purse ho dangled In my view
Betwixt his juggling hands slipped
through. x
He found me poor, he loftVino poorer;
But now n richer friend, and surer.
Awaits mo In tho Now Year.
Where nre tho poet's bays he said
My dulcet song should gain me?
The wreath that was to crown my head,
Th' applauso that should sustain me?
LAlack! .round other- .brows -than, mine
I see tho fresh-won laurels twine! . .
Still, for tho music's snko, I sing;
The world may listen yet, nnd fling
Its garlarids In the New Year.
Where is tho one dear face to love
His golden months should bring me,
Whose smile n rerompenso would prove
For all tho Ills that sting me?
My heart still beats In , loneliness;
Thero Is no darling 'hand to press;
But, oh, I dream we yet shall meet,
And trust to find her kisses sweet,
And win her in tho New Yearl
Where nro tho works In patience wrought;
Tho graco to love my neighbor;
Tho sins left off: tho wisdom taught
Of suffering nnd labor;
Tho fuller life; tho strength to wait;
The equal heart for other fate?
AVell may I speed tho parting guest.
And tnko' this stranger to my breast!
Bo thou, Indeed, a truo year,
O fair and wclcomoNow Yearl
