It should bel rn inhered, especially by lung Christians, that, humanly speak-, the church cannot afford to contain intelligent members. We may not etc f I that it do,-s not matter much anybody but oursel ves if we lack a iperd' gr ■; of spiritual wisdom. It is matter. We have no right to re-ice the average enlightenment of the ristian public in which we live.

Savages in coming Gentlemen. Mr. J. Nixon declares of Magata, a chief near Pretoria, where theHennanns-bnrg missionaries are working, that not even in England has Im met with a more perfect gentleman, in the l^est acceptation of the word. Speaking of the Chief Kchama he declares he is a chief whose word can be depended upon. He is a noble example of successful missionary woik. His Christian!cr is nothing nominal, like that of so many other blacks, as well as whites, but his life, which exerts a pronouncedly good influence upon him and his people. He has abolished drinking in his land, and is always intent on some reform. His word is always trusted, not only by tho missionaries, but also by traders and hunters, who’ are mistrustful of everything accomplished by missions. He is sincere, courageous and manly; and if all Caffre chieftains were like him Caff reland would have a very different look from its present one. —Christian at Work. Things Good to Keep.

No more a transient guest my Saviour cometh, To bless mo but a while and then depart; But with me now he evermore abideth, And w ith his ow n glad presence tills my heart Sometimes, when busy with ray daily labor. Yet thinking of the mighty love he bore, Some precious promise unto mo he giveth. Oft read, perhaps, but never mine before. I know not why he gives his choicest blessings To one so undeserving of his love; But, since he calls, with willing feet I hasten. Content and glad to hear him say, ‘ Well done.” Content to w alk in paths of his own choosing, Since he will hohl my hand along the way; Content to know that I am journeying homeward, And brighter grows the pilgrim's path each day.    —Unidentified. MYSTIC MISCELLANY. Items of Interest From Secret Society Lodge Rooms. Something About the Supreme Secrecy of the Knights of Fytliias, Win. II. Kennedy—The Masons, Odd Fellows, Red Men, Etc. William B. Kennedy, the present supreme secretary of the endowment rank Knights of Pythias, was horn in Hamilton county, O., educated tit Farmer’s college, near Cincinnati, and was for many years engaged in the commission business in that city. He joined Cincinnati lodge, No. 2, K. of P., at its second meeting, was a charter member of the grand lodge and its first grand vice chancellor, and one of the first representatives to the supremo lodge. He represented his jurisdiction at the sessions of I STO, I STI, 1872,1S78 and 1880. At the session of 1872 he was elected supreme guide (now .supreme master at arms), and served in 1873 and 1874, says Tho Boston Globe. in ISIS Bro. Kennedy was a member of the special committee to prepare aud promulgate the uniform rank. In 1883 he was elected G. K. R. S. of Ohio,and served in that capacity six years. Upon the death of Judge R. E. Cowan, in July, 1887, he was appointed to tem-p o r a r i I y take charge of the office of supreme keeper william ii. kennedy. of records and seal and supreme secretary of the endowment rank, and discharged the manifold duties of these most responsible offices with signal ability and success. Upon the appointment of It. L. C. White as S. K. of it. 8. his high qualifications, hi* intrepid zeal for the order and his energetic way of doing what was needed to be done caused himto be continued as supreme secretary for the unexpired term, and at the supreme lodge session in Cincinnati ho was unanimously elected supreme secretary of the endowment rank. That the selection was a fitting one is evidenced by the success attending his labors in that department. The rank never had a more popular, faithful and efficient officer. Bro. Kennedy has also been a prominent Odd Fellow, being a P. G. I*, and I*. G. It. in that order, lie represented Ohio six years in the sovereign grand lodge of that organization. Ile is a man of irreproachable character aud a knight worthy the respect and confidence of every member of the order. He has of late years given almost his entire attention to the advancement of Pythian knighthood. brilliant array of titled Masonic dignitaries was present. The entire cost of the Buffalo Masonic temple will Ihj from $145,000 to $150,000 and it will be ready for occupancy May 1,189L The Masonic temple at St. Paul hasbeen finished for less money than was really expected. There is a debt of $40,000 on it; bu* the resources of the association are amply able to pay it at once if necessary. There are eleven K. T. commanderies in Connecticut, and the whole number of candidates receiving the K. T. degree during the year was 138; W ashington commandery, of Hartford, heading the list with thirty* four. The North western Masonic Aid association does not do business in Kentucky, therefore carmot be affected by the terrible disaster th’, A swept over ti at states and so terribly devastated the beautiful city of Louisville. Tho membership of this association is steadily increasing. There are in the United States 700,000 master Masons, and the estimate for tho world is 1,000.000, representing 10,000 Masonic lodges. The Freemason has given an able review of the Masonic work in England in 1SS9. Forty three new lodges were warranted. WOMAN AND HOME. It is Time to Stop the Talk of the Superior Sex.

At tile late grand rally of the Salvation Army in New York Marshal Booth reported that the army in tho United States has about 350,000 members. The efforts of the American Sunday School union to organize new Sunday schools have led during the past two years to the founding of nearly 200 churches. A fine memorial church, to cost $400,-000, is to be erected in Philadelphia as a memorial to George W. South. It is expected that it will bo the tim st Episcopal church in the diocese. While the May anniversaries have well nigh ceased to be in America they still flourish in England and are becoming even more prosperous than formerly. The London R- cord says that the influence of the May meetings is increasing, and that even High churchmen have caught tho enthusiasm of the occasion. The Lutheran Annual for 1890 gives the following statistics of the Lutheran church in the United States: Fifty synods, 4.012 ministers, 7,911 congregations and 1,086,048 members. An increase of about 2,000 ministers, 5,(XX) congregations and nearly 200,000 members has been made in tin.' last twenty-five years. The Chinese Sunday schools in New York are numerous enough to have their own organ, The Chinese Advocate. Tho first number contains a portrait of Li Hung Chang, the prime minister of China, and an illustration of tho Handwriting on the Wall. Some of the pages are in Chinese. Outwitting th© Landlord. A St. Louis jeweler outwitted his landlord ilia rather unique fashion. He desired to move, but was compelled to pay a full month's rent of $200 because he had not given the required thirty days’ notice. He consulted a lawyer, but was assured that the claim was valid. “I can use the store, can I not/'” ‘‘Certainly,” said the lawyer. His stoc k had nearly been moved to the new store, but the remaining occupant of the store, who was the landlord, was much surprised when the jeweler returned with a select assortment of four -/a n cheap alarm clocks. These the owner »■> suit himself and then went out for a \v,ii... I .ion the alarm clocks began to go off one after the other. The landlord was almost frantic with the noise and hunted up the jeweler and tendered him his money in return, but the jeweler did not want to be out the price of the clocks, so he drove a sharp bargain, accepted $300 and moved out.—Chicago Herald. Some Curious Rainbows. Professor Tyndall has desert lice I various ways of producing artificial rainbow s by means of electric light and artificial mist, tho bows themselves being almost, if not ■wholly,circular in form. Dr. Flemingand otilers recently witnessed a natural i.iin-bow of circular form from the summit of Glydr-Yach. Wales. Standing on the pinnacle and looking into the valley where lies the lakelet, Llyn Idwal, the spectators saw their shadows projected on the mist, and surrounding the head of each were two concentric rainbows, completely circular. The colors of the inner bow were in the order of the primary bow, while those of tho outer circle were completely reversed. During whole time of observation the sun was shining brightly to the backs of the observers.—St. Louis Republic. KNIGHTS OF HONOR. St. Louis and the Supreme Lodge—General Gossip. Says The St. Louis Post Dispatch: St. Louis has again secured the supreme lodge headquarters without any opposition, and from the expressions made by the supreme lodge representatives generally concerning St. Louis city, her hospitable citizens and her solid business enterprises tho chances are that for years to come the headquarters will remain in Missouri. This fact alone should stimulate the various lodges of the order in this city and state to increase the membership by securing tbs applications of the best citizens, and to encourage the holding of more open meetings where tho excellencies of t lie order may be shown to invited guest.-. Although the proposition to reduce tho age limit to 45 years was defeated in tho late session of the supreme lodge, there is a strong probability that the question will again present itself. Were tho matter left to tho subordinate lodges it would meet with an emphatic condemnation. All that is necessary to show the value of the older members is to direct attention to the Juno circular, which contains a list of 153 deaths, fourteen of whom joined the order between 20 aud 30 years of age, and precisely tile same number between 50and 55. Tho former had an average duration of membership of seven years and seven months, and averaged payments of $145.22, while the older members had an average of ten years and one month-and payments of $040.17. The value of the latter class in the payment of assessments was more than four to one as compared with the former.— Boston Globe. The death rate in the Knights of Honor decreased during the year, it being 12.G per 1,000 in 1S89 against 13.5 in 1888. It is said of a medical examiner of one of the lodges that in filling out a certificate ho inadvertently wrote his name in the blank space reserved fur “cause of death.” RED MEN. A Review of the Present Situation of tho Order. With the close of last moon eight great councils entered upon a new great sun’s work, viz., Alabama, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, .Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The Council Brand reviews the situation at the present time as follows: Pennsylvania has already kindled three new tribal council fires and has several more under way. Georgia has put an organizer in the field. Alabama intends to do good work, and the harmonious session of the great council of Illinois and the good feeling prevailing in that state is indicative that the order there will be advanced. Ohio has selected a board of great chiefs who will enter into the work with a determination to meet with success. In Michigan there have been certain causes why tho order during the past few great suns has not made the advancement that it should, but we learn that the causes have now been removed arid good work will be done in the state. Connecticut needs a little stirring up. She has not been as active during the past great sun as was necessary to make onward progress. Virginia, one of tile oldest great councils, did good work last great suu, but will make a greater advancement during tilt present term. MASONIC. _    _    Figure* from Many .Juris dictions—Notes. Iowa report s 57U lodges and 22,521 members. A gain of 5 lodges and 710 members. Ohio leads New York in the number of lodges, having 081, with .a total membership of 52,774. The report of the grand secretary at the recent session of the grand lodge of Minnesota showed a net increase of membership the past year of 1,212. The total revenue of lodges was $120,910.80, an increase of $42,471 over last year. The current expenses were $50,948.91, and relief to the extent of $15,-429.12 was given. This is an average of $1.08 per member. Sixteen Rebekah degree lodges were instituted during the year. The balance on hand, as shown by the treasurer’s books, was $3,070.50. The sixteenth anniversary of the Pennsylvania I. (J. O. F. home was recently celebrated in Philadelphia. The institution has fifty inmates, $02,000 in assets, with no debts and $20,000 permanently invested. The grand lodge of Odd Fellows of Missouri, in session at St. Louis, decided by 38 to 25 to expel saloon keepers. Menders in Illinois at last report, 34,463; now, 30,201; number of brothers relieved, 4,820; weeks' benefits paid, 17,700; widows relieved, 267; brothers deceased, 304; total paid for relief, $107,400.82; total revenue, $348,975.41. When these figures were made up thirty subordinate lodges had not reported. The order is now nearly 93,000 strong in Pennsylvania. Grand Master Freeman hopes to bring it up to 100,000 during his administration. Feb. 13, 1890, there were 38.779 Odd Fellows in good standing in Massachusetts. A. o. u. w.

Ohio shows a net gain of 29 for April, which is an excellent report, considering the embarrassing circumstance attending her litigation on account of Hamilton county. Over BX) applications for membership were receive*I by the various lodges in St. Louis during the month of May. There are at present- 432 lodges in Missouri, with a total membership exceeding 22,000. At the session of the grand lodge of Wisconsin a few weeks ago Bro. ll. ll. /alin, of The A. O. U. W. Advocate, was elected grand master workman. Missouri has now got thoroughly ahead of Illinois, having on April I 21,987 members, to 20,927 in the Prairie state. The Kansas workmen desire the minimum age of admission reduced and lixed at 18. Wearying of the continual assertions which certain of the other sex have maintained, like the whistling of a boy in a cloudy night, perhaps to keep his courage up, the new generation of women have refused to waste time in bandying words, but have gone to work to disprove the assertions. And now it seems evident that with a few generations of this intellectual effort and determination, and an education hitherto granted only to men made the general property of women, these girl graduates— the Fawcetts, the Ramsays, the Reeds—will no longer be exceptional, nor will there be any question of superior brain or suficrior sex; but a glad and free equality will put such vexing matters aside, will acknowledge that brain has nothingto do with sex, and will allow men and women to go forward together to whatever glorious end is theirs. The woman whose intellect has been trained will not be necessarily a pedantic bore or an overpowering force in the family; the better ber training the better her balance; the tetter her understanding of her household needs and her ability to meet them, tho better will she know how to retain and increase the affection once secured, and to make her home all that the ideal home should be. Beauty will still lie beauty, charm will st ill lie charm and academical honors cannot strip women of either; aft*I the love that is attracted by them when accompanied by thorough intellectual development is a love which will outlast that captured by the tricks and arts which kindle but a temporary flame, for tho development of the mind develops and enlarges all the rest of the being, other things being equal. It is well known that there are no better mothers, nor more faithful wives, nor more accomplished housekeepers, nor more delightful guests than can lie found among our present cult ured, learned and literary women. All the education in the world will not eradicate from the I* mi nine nature the household instincts or the love of home and children. Nowhere is real intellectual training found to weaken the feminine tyj>e; but,on the contrary, homes are finer, richer, more exalted and happier under its power. It brings about a perception of mutual rights that does not come to the ignorant; it prevents encroachment; it renders due honor, ami it knows how to produce comfort and joy, and puts the knowl edge to use. When at last any wide number of women thus trained fur generations I have married—for if marriage is not to be the aim of these women, it is at any rate the destined end of these as of all others— aud have married men who did not suffer themselves to be outstripped, it can only be a mighty race of men and women which will be born and reared, compared with whose achievement all that we have at present will seem rudimentary.—Harper's Bazar. society belle would in displaying before the admiring eyes of her dearest friend an expensive dress which had just tome in from some swell modiste. Now I will tell you what they were. One was a very pretty dark green, with a tiny, narrow white stripe, that she wore in the morning. It was a loose wrapper, tied in front with a big sash of the same, and cost $1.50. There was a very pretty pink one with small white dots. That was for afternoon. It was mude in the form of a. wrapper, the sleeves being very full and shirred into the wrist. The sack was o' the same. There were dark purples and light blues, and when she threw them over her arm to take them away I felt like embracing that woman and her calicoes, too. She is a brunette, with a good deal of color, and can wear all those pretty shades. —Boston Globe. The Smart Young Woman. She is more than certain as to dates, she can tell you exactly what you ought to do, and she fails herself to see that she is a living example of how disagreeable one person can be. Young men dread her, old ones have the utmost contempt for her. She tosses her head; says she doesn’t care for the opinion of men. Well, she is losing her womanliness when she feels that way. Every girl ought to care for the opinion of men. She has her father to look up to, her brot hers to he an inspiration to, aud some day, please God, she ought to marry one and make him happy for life. The girl who knows everything is seldom cultivated either in mind or manner. She throws out her bit of information as a naughty boy would throw bricks, and the one fired is always the one just gotten. My dear, don t get into the habit of concluding that the world at large is ignorant. Instead, make up your mind that it can teach you much; intelligence is never lost. Even if absolute information is not given by the intelligent woman, the. look of cultivation shows in her ey< s.

In I SGS the Masons of New Orleans bought a large lot in a fine location. Foundations were laid in 1871 at an expense of $33,000, the intention being to build thereon a splendid temple, to cost $250,000. In order to do this it would have been necessary to issue bonds. The Masons outside of the city, who had a voice in the matter, did not consider t his project a wise one, and the temple was never built. The lot and foundations were sold the other day for $50,000. It is proposed to use this money for the enlargement and improvement of the present Masonic hall on St. Charles street. There is some talk of a Masonic tempi© at Lowell, Mass., but the prospects do not geom to be very flattering. Several unjust applications to Masonic lodges in New York for foreigners landing in that port have been discovered, and all such claims are now rigidly investigated by a committee appointed for the purpose. There is little doubt that the efforts to build a temple at Kansas City will be successful. The ceremony of the dedication of the monument to the memory of Bro. James A. Garfield at Cleveland, on Decoration day, was under the auspices of the grand commandery of Old > The Masons of A at a have purchased a site for their temple, costing $35,000. It is triangularly shaped, and 121 feet deep. The location is one of the best in the city. Prince of Wales lodge, No. 259, London, England, celebrated its centenary recently. The Prince of Wales himself presided, both in the lodge and at the banquet, and a Ancient Order of Iii berm ans. The reports from the national convention of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, held at Hartford, Conn., show a phenomenal growth in the order.

A Business for Women. Many women in these days declare that they want to work, and tha^ they are willing to work if they only knew what to do. Many of these—most of them, indeed—are homo women, w hoso bread winners have been taken away, leaving them with meager resources and no qualifications for earning a living. I have noticed that if you go to a small tow n—by this I mean a town of from 2,000 to 10,000 in bal lit; nits— and inquire where you may obtain good ice cream, or good coffee and cake, or good bread and butter, you will Im* directed to somo cheap and probably vile coffee house or restaurant iii which unpleasant odors invariably prepare you for what is coming to your table. Now, I believe that two bright and refined women could go to any flourishing town and make money pleasantly and without loss of self respect by renting a small room, making it cheerful and attractive—cool and dun in summer, warm and cosy in winter—and furnishing good ice cream, water ices, fancy cakes, coffee, chocolate—especially chocolate pudding, with thick cream—and other light delicacies in summer; while in winter might be substituted oysters, beef tea, fine soups, omelettes—everything to be home made and i»erfeet in flavor and appearance and attractively served. Such a business might be started very modestly, with one little, quiet, low voiced waitress—and, by the way, whenever a man speaks lightly or disrespectfully to a waitress the proprietor should open the door aud invite him to leave. In this way better service and better patronage will Im; assured. But if you prosper don't let your business become too large for your personal attention, or when you least expect it you w ill fail.—Ella Higginson ai t Shore. Abolish the Seiling Fetich. A tine state of affairs it would be if every man when he wanted a mutton chop went out and killed and dressed his own sheep, and every man when he wanted a pair of boots made them. The world is too busy nowadays for the individual to stand by himself and supply his own needs. For the housewife to spare lu r husband s income by patient stitchery i- sweet labor we shall be Lag iii abolishing, but for the army of women who work at bread w inning occupations all day to sit up half the night to make their clothes is ruinous economy. The man who earns $5 a week has more commonsense. He doesn’t put his evenings into the sewing of pantaloon seams. The woman’s busine--, is to sleep and get strength to make the especial work she has chosen more valuable. It will cost ber more than money to burn the candle at i both ends. We need to get rid of the sewing fetich, the idea that there is an inherent, peculiar virtue iii a woman's setting stitches. In point of fact it s all a matter of convenience, and civilization will not have done the fair thing by one w hole sex until it is as easy for a woman to walk into a dry goods store and buy at a reasonable price a tasteful dress as it is now for a man to supply himself with a gc od badness suit ready made.—New Y'ork Commercial Ad it seems to be generally conceded by • authorities on road making that cither t macadam or ted ford roads are l>-t foi country and suburban traffic.

The country has ap-parent!y reached that stage of development which calK, not for temporary makeshifts, but Lr jiermanent construction in roads . s in other things. The farmers have ceased to bo satisfied with having their farms connected to the markets by po ady built and seldom repaired highways which increase by one-half the draft in transporting produce. They demand smooth and substantial thoroughfares, and their demands are all that is necessary, for with themselves rests the solution of the probl? in. In the building of good roads there art-one or two matters which cannot lie looked after too carefully, and winch should be thoroughly understood by every one who pays taxes, that they may be carried out.

The regulation charge of first class professional nurses in New York is $21 a week, arui they are in demand at that price. Tho engagement f a th iroughly trained nurse is considered by physicians as half the battle against disease won. The high wages earned has brought into the profession large numlx;rs of women who have been well bred and delicately reared, but who have Imcii unfortunate iii losing their means of support. They are as particular in choosing their places of service as patients are in choosing them. In talking with such a nuM* she said to me: “I always want to know that I ain going where I will be well treated -that is, not as a servant, but as the p.-it of any member of the household. I ft i thor I occupy a confidential relation to the household, not second evi n to that of tie* family physician.

This grandfather was a butcher,'and he had a very pretty daughter whom the) cook of Sir Charles Vaughn, the. British minister to the United State-a decade or so ago, saw and fell in love with. When Vaughn went back to Et:gland the cook remained and married t he daughter of theibutcher. The butcher died, leaving his lot, which was sold at an enormous figure, and which formed the foundation of the present’fam-ily's fortune. Not long ago the butcher’s daughter*took it upon herself to criticise the admission of the daughters of a poor but blue blooded naval officer into Washington society. la speaking to one of the most relined ladies of Washington aliout it she said, “What an idea, Mrs. Blank. I don’t think we ought to admit these people to our circle. Washington society is growing so common, and we really must draw the line somewhere.” “Yes,” replied the lady sarcastically, “that may Im; true, but where shall we draw the line, at the sirloin or the tenderloin?’’—Washington Letted Here is a novel way to scent a toilet.

Water standing in ruts or hollows is injurious iii two ways—it greatly increases the wear of the traffic, by which the hollow in which it lies is continually deepened and enlarged, and it soaks in and weakens the whole crust of the road and the subsoil beneath.
