The Result of the Recent Conference at Shanghai. <1 progress in the Spread of the Gos-in This Most Difficult of All ' Fields— Benevolence iii Chicago— Religious Notes.BURLINGTON, IOWA, SUNDAY MORNING, AUGUST IO, 1890. EIGHT DAGES. (PRICE: 15 CENTS PEP. WEEK er let 'fke China Missionary conference, «hich wa* held in Shanghai a month or fro ago. is of world wide interest. Nearly every Christian denomination in tho world has representatives in the missionary work in the great empire of China, and large sums of money are expended annually in its support. China hasbeen an extremely difficult field for Christian jnissionaries—the most difficult, perhaps, rf all fields, according to The Independent.    .    .    ,    A It bas been now more than eighty years since the first missionary landed on the shores of the empire, though China has not really been open to missionary work for much more than half of that period. For many years after the missionaries had access to the people of the five ports results were very few', and but little impression w as made upon these strange and inhospitable people, but in later years the progress has been much more rapid. The first conference 01 Protestant missionaries was held in UTT. According to the statistics then 1 (resented there were in all China but 13.5 >5 Protestant communicants. According to the report presented to tho recent and second conference there are now 87,287 Protestant communicants. This is a gain iii thirteen years of 28.772, or nearly 200 per cent. in 1843 there were but six converts, it is stated, in the whole Chinese empire. J ti thirty-four years the increase was upward of 18.500, or at tile rate of 897 a year. Th rate, of increase for the last thirteen years has Been i .828 a year. This is a very remarkable rate of growth. There is now a wry large force, com-’.arativelv. of mi sionaries in China. In there wer !. •! foreign missionaries, including the wiws of missionaries. Kow the total ha- advanced to nearly 1300, of whom os'i are in* n. This shows *n increase in thirteen years of nearly SOO per o ut. Thirteen years ago there were only 78 ordained preachers and pastors; now there are 209. with 1,260 unordained ministers and UO female helpers. Then there were 812 organized churches, of which only is were wholly selfsupporting; now there are 520 organized churches, of which 94 are wholly selfsupporting. Then there were IO hospitals; now th*'re an 61. Then the total contributions bv native Christians for 111 purposes was *9.272: now it is $36,-H. A statistical comparison would show many other items in which there has been a remarkable advance. During thes.-thirteen years there has also been growth in the feeling of fellowship between tin* missionaries of the different denominations represented. Thoro is probable t<»d ay not a missionary in China who i >? thoroughly convinced that the conference is both a wise and helpful institution. The harmony that marked the proceedings of the 'conference amounted to unanimity on all imper*,ar que.-tions. The unanimity of action concerning the preparation of a union revision of the scriptures in China was something that many of the missionaries had not dreamed of as possible. The subject involve.! >0 many difficulties that an agreement seemed to be impossible; but th-' conference adopted unanimously reports which were presented by committees app, .intcd for that purpose, looking toward the translation and publication of union versions of the word of God in I Ii ell Wen-Ii. in Easy Wen-li ami in Mandarin. One of the incidental results of the conference w is a meeting of the representatives cf th*1 various Presbyterian missions in China, tile outcome of which was a plan for organic union. ST. PAUL'S IN DANGER. An I udrrgrouiid Railroad Threatens the Old Cathedral. St. Pauld cathedral is threatened with * novel danger—at least in the apprehension of the dean and chapter and also of Bishop Temple. Among tin* new decrees for facilitating intercommunication in the capital is the scheme for a "central London railway"’ extending from Hyde park. along Oxford street, ami so onward to a spot between the cathedral and the general post office. Tho bishop <>f London moved in the house of lords the rejection of the bill for this railway, which he said would have a station within seventy yards of the northeast corner of the cathedral, woald probably drain away the water from the - md and gravel beneath the cathedral, and 'beret'.ire would endanger tho foundations by subsidence: or if there was any doubt about what might happen, the benefit of the doubt ought to be given to St. Paul's cathedral, which was dear nut only to the citizens of London, but-fi> the whole of the Church of England. Moreover, the bishop of Carlisle pointed out that when he was dean of Ely a scheme < f drainage which had Un carried out allowed the water to escape from the stratum above which tho cathedral of that city stands, necessitating extensive appliances to prevent uS downfall. The bi shop of London confuted to the second reading of the bill, but reserved mitt ce sta"'i* ion anet increase of Sunday schools bv the adoption of new and better methods of reachtng and teaching the children and furnishing to the world of uniform Sunday school lessons.

He Says He is Still Young and That Ile Hopes His Greatest Triumphs are Yet to Come—How He Looks and Aets on the Stag*-. BENEVOLENCE IN CHICAGO. A plendid Array of Charitable Institn-tions in the Windy City. In view of the unhandsome tilings which are sometimes said about the city of Chicago, it is rather interesting to find The New York Tribune making the following pleasing remarks about our great western city: “It is claimed for ( ’hicago that in proportion to its population it has more benevolent societies than any other city in the world: that the percentage of its dependent classes is less than in any other great city; that there are only two other cities in the country as well supplied with Sunday schools, and, finally, that its Newberry Fret1 library started with a fund of 88.oui).OOO. tile largest ever given a free library. Besides this library the late Air. Crerarleft more than ft,OOO,OOO for another, and, in addition, the City library has an income of nearly $100,000 from taxation. Tho city appropriates one-third of its revenues to the public schools, and during the past year its citizens raised $475,000 for the Chicago university and $800,000 for the Lake Forest university. The McCormicks have given nearly $1,000,000 for theological education, and not long aga Mr. Moody easily raised $250,000 in Chicago for his training school. In view of all this it might possibly be advisable for the humorists to stop manufacturing squibs about Chicago's pork and lard. She is a city of which all Americans, New Yorkers included. can be justly proud.” Presbyterian Statistics. William Henry Roberts, stated clerk, furnishes these statistics of the membership of the various synods: Atlantic, 8,682; Baltimore. 19,725; Catawba, 5,128; China, 4.059; Colorado. 5,807: Columbia. 8,738; Illinois. 52,485; India, 1,110; Indiana. 84.817; Indian territory, 1,799; Iowa, 28.529; Kansas. 22,904; Kentucky. 0.781; Michigan, 22,128; Minnesota. 13,028; Missouri. 10,699; Nebraska, 11.259: New Jersey, 57,896; New Mexico, 1,221: New York, 160,422; North Dakota. 2,008; Ohio, 80,958; Pacific, 10,272; Pennsylvania, 104,013; South Dakota, BRUMMEL. 4,429; Tennessee, 4.447: Texas, Utah. 1,812: Washington, 4,190; cousin. 11.723; total, 771,233. 2,335; Wis- « in* listable a*sembly <• of Scotland lied Church. I' tie1 Established , at it- recent meet- Tlie Church mg in Edinburgh, reported th*- following statistics: Income, 1*354.480, an increase of nearly 1*50.000. During the year 57,-.285 new communicants bad been received into the church, the clear increase over the whole membership being 0,386. The report on foreign missions was encouraging. It stated fluit 1,140 persons had been baptized in tho mission field in ISS1.), a number exceeding by several hundreds tin1 admissions of any previous year. The income had amounted to 1*22.421, an increase of £6,372 on the amount subscribed during the previous year. The play was on. From my corner in the wings I could see Beau Brummel on tho stage in one of the leafy avenues of Pali Mall. He was just in the act of taking a pinch of snuff with that elaborate nicety which made the taking of it an art. His bell shaped hat (which, by the way, bids fair to be the fashion again) was of mauve beaver; his shirt a tlufi'y mass of white ruffles below a most dignified stock; his coat a wonder of bott le green broadcloth.with huge pearl buttons; Ids breeches and silk stockings a dull magenta. Three roses Hamed in Ids button hole, an exquisite fob swayed below lbs waistcoat as he walked, and on the top of his gold headed cane an eyeglass was set. What fop of the present time, no matter how ambitious, could obtain such a brilliant ensemble? When the scene was finished and Mansfield came into t he wings he was still the dignified fop of the Georgian era. Ile listened to the applause, sounding Ii kl1 a steady pattering of rain, with a quietly la-i igued expression, .as if he were a little tired of so much t r i u m p Ii. The prompter rang up the curtain again in response to a languid wave of his gloved hand, and he bowed to tho audience just as you see him here. “I've got to descent I into semi-starvation so quickly to be ready for the next scene,” e said on returning a f t e r the fall of the curtain,‘‘that I’ve scarcely a moment to spare. Do I like tin* character of The famous Beau? Letter than any other I play. Thero is a rare charm about it for me, tile effects are so fine, so dainty. It gave me a genuine pleasure to perfect it, to see it evolve from a general idea w it Ii very rough edges into a thoroughly individualized personality. Oh, yes, I like it.’’ There was not time for another word just then for the double stage was moving. Pall Mall was slowly being carried up into the flies and the shabby lodging at Calais where the discarded favorite sought refuge from his creditors was slowly coming into sight. Mansfield is not handsome, scarcely what one wouM call good looking. His eyes are very small and deep set . At the first glance it seems as if they must always be beady and opaque, and yet it is wonderful to see them light up and express a rapid play of feeling. His hands are equally expressive. They have played a prominent part in every character he has created. But his voice— yes, j>erhaps there lies his principal charm. It is capable of such gent Ie r alienees, such a variety of tones in saying one simple word. It is a Hobble, obedient voice which he can make do anything he pleases. As Prince Karl his soft, broken English was as pathetic and winning as the lisp of a child. Who that heard it will ever forget the uncanny snort of Hyde, the quavering, unctuous tones of Baron Chcvrial in “A Parisian Remain that most marvelous exhibition of senile depravity -the cold, oily drawl of Richard III, and now tho languid, velvety utterances of Beau Brummel. sweet, flowing aud delightful. Mansfield's everyday voice is distinct from all of these. Ile speaks with an English accent. and in a direct, clear cut, rather mas terful style. While I waited for his return I looked about the queer little world behind tho scenes. It was worth more than a cursory glance. In the long, narrow stage entrance, lit by a few flickering bunch lights I saw the dissolute young fop, Lord Manly, having a playful wrest ling match with Mortiiner, the Beau’s faithful valet, and pronounced by Mansfield as “Mawr-ti-raawr.” A little further on the Prince of Wales,looking thoroughly democratic and very warm, was sitting in Ids shirt sleeves fanning himself. At the top of a crooked little stair I found the work room. Up through a sort of trap door and between the rungs of ii ladder Mansfield’s voice carne to me. I peeped down and had a sort of bird's eye view of the stage. The evolved from my inner consciousnc ■ss. I saw it all like a scene in ii dream. I (lid Rot gather points for it in any hospital a la Bernhardt, as has been reported, for indeed I had no time. I made ii big hit, as you know. The critics in the morning papers were eulogistic. But managers are skeptical, very. They still feared that I was only a one part actor. I had to wait. I returned to comic opera, appearing in‘Gasparone,’ ‘La Vie Parisienne,* and as Ko-Ko in •The Mikado.’ “After that I brought out ‘Prince Karl’ myself, bi nee then everything I have attempted has succeeded—tho horrors of ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,’ ‘Richard III’ (although I did not realize from this half the extravagant amount I spent upon it) and now ‘Beau Brummel.’ ” Tho curtain was going up. Mansfield mounted the steps behind the scenes and rattled tho latch on the rickety door. The next moment he had entered, and his voice came back to me, ii halting, tremulous, hopeless echo, full of the tears lie was too proud to shed: “They refused to give me a cup of chocolate—and a niaecaroon—they would like to see me—starve.” The characters he apostrophizes later, called up by his delirious fancy; the elegant friends of his prosperity were waiting in the wings to go on ami surround him at A FEMALE LIVERYMAN.

The stone was laid by Sir George Bruce, to whose efforts in enlisting sympathy and raising money the cause there owes its existence. jfeqjjjf! amir 11 • I:!, iii.- 7 ill®!!!

Down below poor Beau Brummel, pale and unhappy in a patched satin dressing gown, the shadow of his former exquisite self, was trying to appense ids irate landlady with a volume of promises, trying to hide the fact that, lie was hungry, and that ho had not a son left in the world. On the hidden stage overhead the scene was beingquietly set for the last act, showing the wretched attic at Caon. Beau Brummel was clothed in the rags of a pauper when next I spoke to him. His battered, rimless hat left exposed the miserable, shifting eyes where tlits glitter of starvation seemed to burn, like a light v* reaming above a wreck. But he was Beau Brummel still though in tatters. Not a pitiable hick of linen, not fingerless gloves nor the jeers and flings of street urchins could alter that velvet suavity which had once marked him as “the first gentleman in Europe.’’ Richard Mansfield was so thoroughly lost in the personality of the unhappy wreck that it was fairly start ling to hear him speak in ins own voice after the scene ended. •‘Y'ou want to hear something about my career—about myself?

Park, the Goulds and Asters and other well known millionaires spend the greater part of August on their superb yachts. Nothing shows the growth of yachting in America more than the growth of the yacht agency. The object of this institution is to furnish everything that can possibly be required on one of these craft, from a sailing master and crew to Hie wines at tho festive board. Whether you want to be absent for a week or a day it’s all the same. You give notice, pay your bill, step aboard \\ it ii your guests and that's the end of it. Neils Orison, the steward of the New Y~ork Y acht club, who is authority on all matters connected with the sport, says ho has noticed during his long experience of thirty years that when the craze for yachting seizes upon a family, it descends from father to son even to the third generation. The Stevens, Centers, Sears, Webbs and Vanderbilt ; are a few of the examples he quotes. Some of the bt -1 yachts that sail on riio inland waters of the country, are built in and around New Y’ork. Occasionally one will see a handsome hull being forwarded to its destination near a lake on a coupleof platform cars. More frequently, however, the boat is sent on shipboard to points along the coast and even to California. Several of the finest San Francisco yachts were built in New York. More yachts change hands in the course of a year than people have an idea of. There is always an ambitions fellow who wants something better, and in makingasacrifice he generally finds plenty of buyers. Y'ou can purchase a second hand yacht at a third or a quarter of its original cost. ATHLETIC NOTES. Tile Amateur Athletic union assumed jurisdiction of amateur baseball last fall for the purpose of putting it on a plane with field athletics so far as dividing it from professionalism is concerned, but indirect charges have been made that several teams of prominent New York city athletic clubs have professionals. The Amateur Baseball league, which has had control of baseball of the athletic clubsin the vicinity of New York for some years, allows its teams to use professional batteries, but tho A. A. U. does not even permit this, and great difficulty has been found to find men to stand behind the bat for simply the love of sport. The Irish Amateur Athletic association, which controls athletics in Ireland, is canvassing the subject of a fair programme for a general athletic championship meeting. P. Bi vin is now champion of that country. Deceptive False Curls. Every one must have noticed tho number of ladies who wear short , curly hair at present. It may astonish you to learn that most of these charming curls ara false. Typhoid and other fevers have played havoc with hair. After such an illness the hair is almost invariably seriously injured, and even if it does not fail out it becomes so dry and harsh that thero is nothing to be done but to shave it eloso and wait for a new growth. Unless tho hair grows very rapidly it will he two or three months before it is long enough to look well, and in the meantime a wig is* a necessity. Tho short, curly hair looks more natural than a dressed wig, and is easier to keep in order, so most ladies prefer them. Elderly ladies, however, often use French twists and pompadours. Few people know how common wigs are. I have sometimes sold five or six in one day, and a great many ladies say they are sorry when their own hair grows out, as the wig has saved them so much timo and trouble.—Interview with Wigmaker. A wide awake, energetic woman keeps a livery stable at No. 105 West Forty-ninth street. Her name is Annie Child*. Md she is fair, plump ami not yet 40. Mrs. Child* has a i lear, ruddy complexion, an elastic step and an easy, conversational style that tells its own story of genteel associations and intelligent observation. This courteous and thoroughly efficient business woman is known from one end of the livery trade to the other. ‘ You'll not find a man in a livery establishment in New York who knows tho business better than Mrs. Child*,” a prominent liveryman said to a reporter. “Oh, yes, she's got a husband, but it * M rs. ('hiliis who is known to the trade. She is in full charge of the stable, aud when I say that I mean that she’s the lx>ss. I’d trust her with any branch of the business in preference to most men. The fact is she’* 'up to snuff’ and no mistake, lf you don’t lidieveitgo and see for yourself." 'I'he reporter did go and see for himself. It was early in the forenoon, and business was quiet, therefore Mrs. Childs was upstairs in her comfortable homelike apartments, making her baby a frock. The visitor was ushered into a bright little office, the distinguishing feature of which was its extreme cleanliness. The walls were lined with pictures of famous horses. There was an oval mirror over the marble basin and on the mantel a vase of flowers. HOW SHE STARTED. Mrs.’Child*, who was called through a tube, made lier apparance in the space of exactly one minute by the reporter's watch. She came down smiling, aud was a goodly sight to see in her trim black jersey and bright, silk}' looking gray poplin skirt. Her collar was fresh from the iron, her hair tidily done and her finger nails neatly manicured. She sat down quickly, and opened the conversation quite as gracefully as many ladies do in their own drawing rooms. “So you think it odd to see a woman in the livery business, do you?” she said laughingly. “Well. I have never thought of it in that light, but perhaps that is because I have never had time to think much about it. It has taken pretty much all my time to get, through with the actual business of it for the last sixteen years. I am English, was born and reared at Edmonton, near London, and grew up with horses for my playfellows, as so many English girls do. I have never seen a horse yet that I was afraid of, and I am called a good horsewoman. My father-in-law was a crack horseman and so are all his sons, including my husband, so you see I have alway* been surrounded by horses. “When we came to America my husband wanted to open a boarding stable, but he had other business to attend to and could not give his personal attention to it. lie never thought of my going into the business, but I saw that he needed me and I immediately announced m\ intention of carrying it on myself \\ e opened a stable in Eighteenth street, between Six Hi and Seventh avenues, and there I conducted it on a small scale, keeping my office in tile sitting room. My business gradually kept, growing larger until the little writing desk which served me in the sitting room would do no longer, and I moved down mg young lawyer or most pi on,im re in. h-clor in the town. New York World. Hi* Frau Too Tight. Some funny things take place in a photograph gallery. Once in the early day* a good German came to have his frau taken full length to send home, that his old neighbors might for themselves see how handsomesbe had grown. I Ie hail spared no expense to buy her a handsome new gown for the occasion, and it wa* made up in the ' latest style when she came to have her j daguerreotype taken. We posed her and propped up her head with the nippers, and there she was, the stiffest, most unlovely specimen of a woman that ever was seen. You know it took some time to burn in a daguerreotype, and she began to look fagged before the prove-s wa* completed. The opt*rater dupped on the cap at last and ran into the dark room with the negative, leaving lier standing. Presently ho heard an awful crash, as though the house was tumbling down. Running out ho found tho husband hopping around,wringing his hand* and distractedly crying, ‘'.-he too tight! She too tight !” Hi* frau had fallen over backward through tho background in a dead faint. The operator took in the situation lit a glance, and opening her dress ripped her corset strings with one thrust of his knife, when he vows he will never forget to his dying day how a woman he took to be slender seemed suddenly to bulge out into immense proportions. She hail veritably laced “within an inch of ber life” to have, a picture for home folks taken. Interview iii Washington Herald. Women alure flconomicai Til.in Men.

Inventor of the Detective Camera. 11 was a Parisian who hit upon tho novel idea of a detectivo camera. Ho made a Email camera, which ho concealed in his hat. A shutter in front was so cleverly arranged that tho joint could not be seen. At first ho used wet plates, but he soon saw lite disadvantage he was laboring under. About that time the lightning dry plates wero put od. tho market and the FYencbman’s hopes rose high. Ile could tako his hat anywhere with him, and no one, at aglance, would suspect its double purpose. Placed on a table facing tho person to be taken, the little button at tho back could bo pressed and the exposure made. In some respects the hat camera was immeasurably superior to the toys now on tho market. Mr. John Carpenter, of Goodland, Iud., says: “I tried Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Darrho a Remedy for diarrhoea and severe cramps and pains in the stomach and bowels with th*1 best results. in the worst eases I never had to give more than the third dose to effect a cure. In most cases one dose will do. Besides its other good finalities it is pleasant to take.” ‘25 and 50 cent bottles for sale by all druggists. stairs aud went into business professionally. From that time on I have conducted every detail of the business without help, save that of the ordinary hands employed about livery stables, and can say without egotism that I have made it a success. I take filled or the carriages, harness arid occasionally horses.

A born coquette is more dangerous than a beaut ,    Si).1 inherits a lietter legacy than wealth, for while money give* life its cushion beauty gives its color and coquetry makes it sparkle. The coquette will go on with her conquests while there is a man left in the world wi-iJt a heart in his bosom. There is a w oman in New York who keeps a big boarding school for the**ducation of coquettes, and instead of walking on rose leaves'the treads on golden eagles. Seats ar her performances are secured two years in advance, and to make the application you paj- a handsome deposit. There are no graded courses of study, no exhaustive examinations, no tedious memory lessons and no incessant eternal and intolerable smashing of piano keys. Aspirants for degrees can go to the Harvard annex. Would he grenadiers are directed to Holyoke anil Columbia, and blue stockings arc advised to enter local high schools anti universities for intellectual force. Here coquetry is fosteml nd no secret is made about it, either. Square shoulders are rounded into De Milo grace; flat soles are raised by judicious foot covering'; high foreheads sheltered lur kiss curls; harsh voices lowered a whole tone; angular elbows turned in; stiff joints loosened and every symptom of a strong mind rigidly suppressed. The pupil is sweetened, softened ami curved. She is irefully instructed to know nothing and to do nothing that will rob a grace or noir a smile. And does she pay? Doesn’t she!

This antiquated fe male is frequently^ fol lo av til by a numlnr of men also hired to carry wreaths ami Other floral devices appropriate to the solemn occasion. Then comes the hearse, drawn by tAvo or four black horses and driven by a man wearing a floAving black robe and a Ioav, wide brimmed black hat. Beside the hearse walk the pallbearers aud behind the hearse come the mourners, all Rfoot and all wearing black silk tiles. Then folloAV the carriages, all empty, for it is an imperative rule that ut tnt* except, the drivers of the vehicles shall ride in the funeral procession: moreover, no woman save only the old woman who precedes the hearse can participate in the procession. When the female relatives ..rid friends of the deceased wish to see tht' burial they go to t he cemetery by a ileviou* route and return in an equally modest way. After the funeral the mourners ride home in the car-riatrea.—Eugene Field.in Chicago Ne aas. .% 4V ii sh for the Eyebrow*.
