her ability to get down the er Thames in which she now lies into the sea Tho city government of Portland Mo has made special arrangements to honor the arrival of the monster steamship Tho gramme includes a public dinner a grand ball and military display and other tations of rejoicing There will be a great crowd there from all parts of our country to welcome her She will probably arrive at Portland if no accident happens in about one week after starting LOCAL MATTERS NATIONAL AT Chicago papers come to us filled with at counts of the great National Fair It is i decided success The freu

drawn to a couple of boy and a aged ten or twelve years who woro ling about some childish The dispute waxed warmer and warmer until at length tlie boy struck his female companion who in turn began to war by pulling hair He thought it time to interfere and began to expostulate with them in re- gard to their conduct In the course of the conversation he said to the little girl you should not do so you should return a kiss for a blow how much better it would be would it With contrition in her heart and humility in her looks she replied sir it would but finks sir when I kiss Tom for this I hope a

tho attention of tho people the mers particularly to the fact that census vrill be taken next year This being the case if every ono would take note of the number of bushels of each kind of grain he raises as threshing is done for instance and so on of each produce at a time when all the facts are Iresh and note them down to be referred to when the agent comes around it would not only facilitate the business of taking the census but what would be still better it would be more ble The present harvest is ono if reported MB EDITOR few would like to place of meeting where should the spirit move any one to speak they might have a free sermon and free questionings as of old when Christ declaimed his lay sermons to common people who questioned that they might understand and that Gospel which will not bear questioning is not worth ing much less paying for I for one believe that good may come out of every Nazareth or community and that it is not necessary to hire dollar lecturers or thousand dollar clergymen to teach the Gospel of Humanity or glad ings to all mankind Christ neither taught sectarian creeds nor doctrines but practical benevolence universal Love is the fulfilling of
