Some Interesting Facts About the Baptists in Great Britain. Home Mission Now Consists of Eighty. six Mission Churches and Forty Con-" joined Mission Churches-The Baptist Building Fund. Baptists in America may like to learn something of the sayings and doings of the brotherhood in Great Britain. Tho Baptist union this year had for its chair-man the Rev. James Owen, of Swansea. The topic of his animal address was •An Effective Ministry of the Word.” It showed some of the things which tend t0 impair the efficiency of the pulpit, and fljgeti that profound convictions and a fearless expression of them are necessary an effective ministry, also that there must be enthusiasm. During the sessions of the union strong ground was taken against measures which would work to place public education more under the control of the Episcopal churel i. I Apposition was made to the enumeration of the religious profession of the people in the census. Of course those who attend no church tfould be reckoned as Episcopalians and a fake idea would be given of the numbers adhering to the state church. The discussion on adult Sunday schools was of a practical and useful kind. Thus far English churches in general have no such Sunday school as are found iii America. ’ Col. Griffin, well known in the United States, was elect' d vice president, which means that he is to preside and deliver the address next year. He is the first lauuan to be called to the chair. At the Home Mission meeting the report read by Rev. Dr. Booth showed that there are now eighty-six mission churches upon the list of the council, and that the conjoined mission stations staad at forty. Sixty-five mission pastors are provided for Hie I .ti churches and the stations. The figures as to membership, and the contributions of the mission churches to various funds, were in* high degree cheering, showing shat the work done is thorough as well as extensive. The Rev. Hugh Price Hughes, Wesleyan, preached the annual sermon. The Baptist building fund, which helps much in the erection of new houses of worship, granted loans amounting t o about ”50,OOO during the year. It had an inspiring anniversary. The Baptist Missionary society rejoiced in the return home of its secretary, Mr. A. IL Baynes, who had spent six months in India and insisted in paying his bills of travel himself, a sum of $2,500. Owing to sickness he was unable to be present at the meeting. The income of the society for the year was $400,OOO, but the expenditures exceeded this sum by about $12,000. The addresses were of a fine order. The annual sermon was ] 'reached by the Rev. T, Yiucent-Tymmes. . The Bible Translation society still continues auseia1 wiok.

Two Stroll" Utterances—Cardinal Gibbons* Opinion. Y\ hen vye find the most upright citizens taking no interest in politics, showing no zeal for the good government of the country, we may expect political stagnation and corruption; but when the best citizens manifest interest in public affairs we have good government and honest administration of public trusts. It is the duty of every public man to take an active iiersonal interest in the welfare of his country and to see that the best citizens are elected to public places.—Cardinal Gibbons in St. Vincent’s Church, Baltimore. At no jieriod of our history have the Olds used by Cardinal Gibbons been more applicable than the present. Thousands of our best equipped citizens take little or no interest in politics. Their plea is that machine rule is dominant, and that they would be contaminated by contact with tho rough masses. They take an altogether pessimistic view of municipal, state and national affairs, and too many of them are ready to join in with the foreigners who pronounce republican government in America a failure. But these gentlemen are altogether mistaken. Wherever government is corrupt it will be found owing largely to the neglect of such as they to do their duties as patriotic Americans. They could speedily put to rout the forces of evil, and cleanse the Augean stables of public affairs. For, while we believe that our constitution and free system contain in themselves the potent germs of immortal life, they require the co-operation of the citizen to bring them to the full measure of their power and usefulness.—Freeman’s Journal. Methodist Episcopal Statistics. The Methodist Episcopal church south, according to statistics published, has 4,862 itinerant preachers, 6,269 local preachers, 1,161,666 members (white), an increase of 38.168; 520 colored members, a decrease of 125, and 3,833 Indian members, a decrease of 1.125. The total net increase of preachers and members is 37.053. The number of infants baptized last year was 34,733, and the value of church edifices is reported at nearly $17,000,000. The total missionary collection for eight months, ending June 30, is $581,-440.39. THE LODGE ROOM. Gossip of All Kinds From the Fraternal Societies.

Few fraternal organizations have tri-umped over adverse circumstances as thoroughly as has the order of the Knights of the Tented Maccabees. The order was originated in London, Ont., in 1878, and for a time enjoyed great prosperity. But there were certain defects in the plans of its organizers which might have proved fatal. Reorganization was necessary aud was effected in Buffalo in 1880. This caused a split, which has however been happily healed. Probably more credit is due Mr. N. S. Boynton, S. and G. record keeper, than to any other man for the order's present prosperity. The present great commander of Michigan is Hon. D. P. Markey, of West Branch. Mr. Markey is a lawyer, a native of Ingham county, Mich., where he was born in 1857. He began clerking before he could sec over the counter. W Ii e n h e liecame old enough to take the dust out of a boy's pants he taughi school, then kept books, not his own, but a firm’s by whicb he was employed. It was slow work for a man born to progress, and he swapped the desk for a ,iON- r>-law stool in the law office Knowlton. When he had dust off the books lie was admitted to practice and associated himself with De Vere Hall to practice law and sell real estate, and they do a great deal of both. Ile has been a circuit court commissioner, a judge of probate, a state legislator and speaker of t he house. In the order of Maccabees his career has been marked by just such a rapid ascent, but he eventually dropped into the hole that fitted him when he became tlse executive official. Whatever is done for the order’s advancement bears his imprint. It is altogether probable that he will be promoted still higher at the next session of tile great t* ut Gifts to Universalist Institutions. The Rev. William H. Ryder, D. D., of Chicago, has bequeathed about $162,000 to different institutions of the Universalist denomination, all of which has been paid. Mr. A. G. Throop, of Calfomia, has given $20,000 to a college. The gifts of Universalists to their colleges during the past twelve years have amounted to an average of over $200,000 per annum. In Philadelphia during the past eighteen months over $100,000 has been raised in the Church of the Messiah and paid into the treasury, in addition to the amount received for the sale of its old church edifice. German Religious Statistics. Religious statistics of Germany: Evangelicals (including Lutheran, Reformed and United churches), 29,369,847; Catholics, 16,785.734; other Christians (including United Brethren, Baptists, Mennonites, Methodists and other independent churches!, 125,673: Jews, 563,172; unclassified, 11,278. The Evangelicals and the Catholics have increased about the same rate since 1871, but tho other (’hris-tains, which include the various Protestant missions, have grown much faster in proportion to the population, which is 46,855,704. Tile Late Rev. Dr. Leonard Schmitz. The Rev. Dr. Leonard .Schmitz, who was formerly rector of the celebrated High School of Edinburgh, and more widely known as the author of a standard history of Rome, died recently at the great age of 83 years. Ile was the first to publish from his own notes eight volumes of lectures from the celebrated German historian, Niebuhr. An International Congregational Council. Tho Congregational Annual union has recommended that an international council be held in London in July, 1891. The committee proposes that the council shall consist of IOO delegates from England, IOO from America and IOO from the rest of the world. The Rev. Dr. Storrs, of Brooklyn, is to be asked to po -ach the inaugural sermon. Evangelical Lutherans in Pennsylvania. The statistics as given in the minutes of tile annual convention of the Evangelical Lutheran Ministerium of Pennsylvania are as follows: Ministers, 269; parishes, 212: congregations, 448; accessions, 8,si I; losses, 3,727: confirmed members, 104,041; contributions for home and foreign missions, general beneficence, $39,104.47._ RELIGIOUS NOTES. There are sixty-four churches of the Church of England, besides those of other denominations, within a quarter of a mile of St. Paul's cathedral. Most of them have more seats than there are residents in the parish. Many of the clergymen live far from London. One, whose income is £1,050 a year, has not visited his parish for fourteen years. Tile Rev. Dr. H. C. Mabie, of Minneapolis, has resolved to accept the western secretaryship of the American Baptist Foreign Missionary society. His headquarters will be in Chicago. The Salvation Army in Paris has been re-enforced by a Salvation Navy. A church boat floats on the river Seine near the Pout de la Concorde. Hie "‘floating temple/’ as the Parisians call it, has been named the “Herald of Mercy. ’ In the hall amidships there is accommodation for 200 persons. The Seventh-Day Baptist Church of Christ lias a membership of about 9,000 in this country, aud an influence over 40,000 persons. Two centers of its influence are at Alfred Center, N. where is the church seminary and university', and at Plainfield, N.

The Orth*!- Is Booming in 3Iussacliii->«-tts. Other Items. A circular issued by the grand lodge of Massachusetts states that the returns for the last six months indicate an increase for that jurisdiction of K. of P. more than double that of any corresponding term, and the financial condition of the subordinate lodges shows a similar growth. Among the queries put to the grand chancellor (L. L. Tarbell) is one that was evidently a “poser.” He was asked, “If a member whose only avocation is a gentleman should break his arm would he be entitled to benefits?" Answer: "Ls he able to pursue his usual avocation? Let the constitution govern you.” The G. C. should have referred the question to the supreme lodge. Is not a broken armed gentleman a gentleman still? The uniform rauk has about £5,000 sir knights—nearly as many as the standing army of the United States. Pennsylvania mill remains, numerically, the banner Pythian grand jurisdiction, having over40,him knights and a handsome sum in its exchequer. At Scranton, Kan., recently the twin sons of Bro. Thomas Noble were christened Damon and Pythias with impressive ceremonies in the lodge room. Arkansas has fifty-four lodges and thirteen divisions. There are at present about "260,000 members In the order. There are two sections of the endowment rank in Honolulu, Sandwich Islands. The lodges in Indianapolis have an aggregate membership of • 2,000, and the lodges have all the work they can do. The richest lodge in Indiana is Crescent lodge, No. 33, of New Castle, the mtal resources of which are $7,587.15. The next wealthiest lodge is Indianapolis,Ndf56,with assets aggregating $6,979.66. The last named is the banner lodge in point of membership in Indiana, having on Dec. 31 351 knights on its roll. R. E. Lee Indue, of Vicksburg, Miss., has a membership of 201. and is worth $2,810.46. Cape Lawrence Cole, a prominent ranchman and a Pythian Knight of Mexico, is asking the aid of the knights in Texas to establish lodges in Mexico. jonsists or apout .OO memoers. and also to cutdown the expense, which averagesabout $9,000 a year. Bro. A. D. Sanders say s Illinois does not want an orphans’ home; each lodge is th* guardian of its dependent widows and orphans. New York city has 83 lodges working in the German and 52 in the English language. There are also 4 Bohemian, I Danish, I French and I Swedish. The annual report of the grand encampment of I tall says that the gain in membership for the yea. ended March 31,1890, was 19. The total number of members if 242. The grand master of Ohio is allowed 13,509 for expenses to visit the lodges. The grand master of the state of New Y'ork is allowed $2.50 fur the same purpose. There are now about forty-five Odd Fellows’ insurance companies, from which the income last year approximated $1,660,-023.97. The Indian territory is to have a grand lodge. Recent Odd Fellows’ statistics foot up the number of white Odd Fellows on the globe at 1,341,279. The are now 581 cantons, with a tutai membership approximating 25,000 chevaliers. Attire present rate of growth the P. M. army will number about 27,000 by the time of the cantonment at Chicago. There are eighty-three lodges of the Belick ah degree in Massachusetts; receipts for the year, 82,142.20; disbursements, $2,020.20. California has 352 lodges, Oregon 93 and Nevada 32.

Pennsylvania, however, has nearly a thousand lodges, while Ohio, the next highest, has only 076, and Illinois 669. Pennsylvania has 84,OOO members; the next highest jurisdiction, Ohio, has 49,207. The Odd Fellows Hall at Philadelphia. Many Members in Portland. The Odd Fellows’ hall in Philadelphia, located on Sixth street, is in the market. Seventy thousand dollars has been offered and refused, as $80,000 is the fixed price. lf sold, the proceeds will be used to build in another locality. This hall stands upon the site of the building where anti-slavery meetings were held before the war, and which was burned during that exciting period by the advocates of slavery. In PNI the assessors of Portland, Me., returned the number of polls as 9,948 and estimated the population of the city at 42,-OuO, says The Independent Statesman, There are 2,865 Odd Fellows in the seven subordinate lodges of the city, so that there is one Odd Fellow to each 3 47-100 of tile voter . and one to each 14 66-100 of the total population.

THEY DISLIKE HOUSEWORK. The Young Girl Who Prefers to Read and Improve Herself. Some Considerations Upon the Attitude of the Educated Young Woman of To-Day Toward Work to lie Done iii the House. bel (-iicd at MASONIC. Two cd old Cabinets of Great Value. Other Mutters. Within 200 miles of Kansas City today there are two grand old carvings in the forms of cabinets, about eighteen feet high, that were carved during the Twelfth century by Irish monks, and were used by the grand lodge of Masons of Ireland for over 4(H) years in which to keep the grand lodge proceedings. The material of which they were made is Irish oak, and, as many are aware, age darkens this wood. At this writing these cabinets are almost as black The following letter ha this office: “I wish to state my case to you. Two years ago I was graduated at a school fur girls. Since that time I have lived at home with my parents. I like to read and study, but my mother thinks I should keep myself busy for the greater part of the day about housework and sewing. Now, I tio not like housework and I do like to st ti ay, aud furthermore, it seems to me that I should be doing wrong to give so much time to housework when I might be improving myself. Now will you tell me candidly just what you think about it, and oblige yours truly,    Olive.” Just what we think about what, Olive? You should be a little more definite in stating your needs in a case so desperate as this appears to lie. What do we think about your hay ing to do housework when yod would prefer to study? We think your preference is not first to lie consulted. The need f<>r your doing it is the first question to be answered, and you should have given ii- some indication of thD. A GRAVE PROBLEM. But let us begin at the beginning The problem you state is a grave one. aud one that is every now and t lien coming up to lie decided. With women entering into the broad fields of the higher education and sipping the sweets of a constantly widening culture, while the sphere specially designated as “woman's” still claims so much of their thought and attention, it is pertinent to ask and to discuss what shall be the attitude of the educated young woman of today toward the undignified and unpleasant details of housework. The pervading opinion in the minds of men yes and of women, too—in regard to these things is that the instinct for household duties is innate in the truly womanly heart. This much is true: The love of home and family is inborn in the heart of even' woman. Household duties she tolerates because she loves these others. But no woman feels a hidde n longing for the companionship of pots and pans, or feels her whole soul go out in yearning toward sauces and salads, or recognizes the cooking range as next of kin. No woman loves these things. Nor should she. That she does them is of grace and not of nature. This proposition may lie laid down at the outset as brood enough to cover all the ground. A woman ought to do just as much of the housework in a house as actual necessity lays upon her iii securing the comfort and welfare of the home. To do less than this is unworthy; to do more, merely for the sake of work, is undignified. And here is where you failed to be explicit, Olive. How necessary is it that this work should be done by the women members of your family ' If your father is able to supply *6    ?    '• us wherewith strong hand-, tit..t ha .«• in, < i.er accomplishment may ucst ired I i do thi.-, work for you, and if you-should ti, -n elect to be your own hewer of wood and drawer cit water, you would be lacking in a proper tense of personal dignity and of the fitness of things. You could, as you suggest, use your time to much better advantage. GIRLS, IiON'r MOUNT TOO HIGH. But ou the other hand, don't mount too high a horse, Olive. Don't feel too keenly the value of your tune arni the duty of improving yourself. Just try to be a wise, healthy minded, sensible girl, and the self improvement may be taken for granted. It appears altogether probable from your letter that there is some necessity for your doing your share of the household yvork.

Help must be given.” She flew to the spot nearest to where th® engine had plunged into the yvater. She found two men dead and two men uninjured, but so stranded on t he driftyvood BS to be out of her reach. Then she remembered Hie express. All about her yvere the roaring yvaters, tearing up great trees by the roots. The hideous wind yelled at the daring of the inspired child and seemed to dare her to proceed. She crept along rn the darkness, her only guide the livid flash that sprang upon her from moment to moment, and at last reached the trestle. To cross this single tracked bridge in the daytime required the steadiest of nerves. How could she cross it in this fearful darkness, with a light that came only to blind her? What was there fur her but death if the train came before she had crossed the horrid chasm? Down on her knees the brave girl went. It was ber duty, for death yvouhl pay the penalty of her cowardice, and she could not be a coward if she would. Down on lier knees she falls and begins her dreadful task, her ears strained to hear in the noise of the tempest the v-Justle and roar of the flying train. Midway across the bridge a huge tree tears down the flood and adds a new peril. A moment yet and its branches part and only touch lier skirt with a gentle switch as it sweeps under the bridge. At last she teaches the cud of the bridge, hand* and knees torn and bleeding, and every muscle and nerve so tense and quivering that her limbs refuse to hold her. She almost faints u.-> she tries to stand erect, and .-he fears she cannot reach the station after all. Once more her splendid courage avails her. She gathers strength, tears her clinging skirt from about her knee* and leaps on faster and faster until the station at Moingona is reached. She screams her message to the astonished operator. She sees his hand fall upon the key, She hears him say the train is saved, and then she is once more the woman and no longer the heroine— for she faints v here she stands. For three months the fight for life went on lift he lindy of this bravo girl. Then she came out once more the victor, and was able to sit at her window and see the hills glowing Mi th autumn colors and anew safe bridge across the creek that is once more a placid little stream. Now as to the recognition made of this wonderfully brave deed. “Many suppose,” "ays the Dos Moines I News in a recent article intended to shame the people cf the state into doing ‘'something, “that the railroad whose property and reputation were thus saved did just j what the general verdict says they should j have done—that is, given this brave girl at £TbT There ” least $o,000 and a life pass upon the road.    , . . tl r-n One hundred dollars, however, was the » *■> “ extent of this great corporation’s beneficence, and even this was not offered till the public tongue began to wag most furiously agalnst it, and till the heroic creature had fought death for three months in a sickness dating from the afternoon of the Sunday following the terrible experience. “The cost of medical attendance could not be covered by this paltry sum. As to the pas* on the road it Is never obtained without the humiliation of asking at headquar ters for it, and many times the fare is paid rather than to submit to pose as a beggar before this corporation, in the .service of which she freely offered her life.

Benjamin Bickerton, who w as initiated into Lafayette lodge, No. 18, Jan. I, is A, and has therefore been a member of the lodge lor nearly fifty-five years. During this time he has faithfully performed the duties of outside guardian for forty-nine years, with less than a dozen nights absence from hi* Dost during this long period. Bro. Bicker-Ton, who has passed the allotted age. of man (throe score years and ten), is still as active as most men at 40, and bills fair to add many more years to tile long term he has already so faithfully served. There is a movement in Illinois to abolish the lodge system of representation to the grand lodge, and to substitute the district system for the same. The object is to make the grand lodge more effective by reducing the represoBtatiwB. trhieh carved the emblems of the craft. They were brought to America forty years ago by a highly cultured gentleman, w ho shortly after died. Since then they have been stow ed away. They are valued at $5,000. It can safely lie said they are the oldest carvings iii North America. Sir Knight P. E. Burrough some years ago helped to remove them, and is the only Mason in Kansas City who can locate them. What a grand gift these two cabinets would make to our new Masonic temple when built, exclaims a Kansas City paper. The receipts of the Masonic board of relief of the city of New York for tho past year were $3,242.57; disbursements, $1,-574.77. The Hall asylum fund received $07,500 during the year, and notwithstanding the purchase of property near Utica for $20,000 had in trust companies at interest and at bank on tho 1st of June $185,197.10.

The New York Herald says: About this time of year tile “Knights of St. John of Jerusalem” are holding their annual conclaves all over Europe. It is a creditable thing for m.-n to associate themselves together in order to relieve tho sick and wounded, but why should they call themselves by a name to which they have no right? The order of the Knights of St. John still exists and has its headquarters and its grand masters in Home, but the modern English or German Knight of St. John has no possible connection with the order. A dozen gentlemen may form themselves into a charitable society and call themselves “Knights of St. John” if they choose, but that does not make them members of the oldest order of chivalry in existence. They are no more Knights of St. John than the respectable grocers who call themselves “Knights Templar” in America are genuine Knights of the Temple. The Order of the Knights of St. John cannot be “revived” by any sovereign or legislature without the concurrence of the grand master of the order at Rome. vail pint imni<(( ss and mind and to best >i<Kik ( nu rn liers.—7 im possibly can, you will ml of menial duties benni ennobled. 8o they as ninth toyourliap-improve ment of your -piritual growth as the sn read iii the greatest -rk Evening Sun. rapany. t "uarlotte Temple’:* Grave. “Have you noticed,” sai d a woman, “that Charlotte Temple’s grave is nearly always decked with flowers?

Tin- lather is dead, anil on Kate, the olch >t of four, and herself not yet 25, has fallen the house burden. From a strictly picturesque ani romantic point of view the story of Miss Shelly’s deed of daring is one of vivid strokes and daring color. Kate Shelly was then 15 years old, the (laughter of a man already dead, who had settled on a piece of land afterward cut across by tho Chicago aud Northwestern railroad. The land was hilly and so unfit for cultivation that Mr. Shelly abandoned farming and became a workman ou the roadbed of tho now railroad. Exposure brought on consumption and fie died. From tho time of In r fathers death the j story of this child's plucky fight with life ! is one crowned with dignity. The tiny holist: in which the Shelly family lived in lb-s I stood just at the eastern foot of a long and high semicircular hill, which indeed lacked but little of entirely surrounding tho house, opening sufficiently ou the opposite siu-s for the passage of the railroad. Through these two openings also flowed Honey creek, twice within this circle spanned by the railroad with bridges, while to the southwest flowed tho serene Des Moille', bridged by an immense 500 foot trestle. About 6 o'clock on the evening of July 6 one 8*f tho most, terrible rain storms ever Know n in Iowa burst upon Boone county. It. changed the little creek into a leaping flood that soon buist its bounds and swept out upon the valley. The position of the tiny house upon the hill gave Kate a chance to watch tho havoc all about her and to fully comprehend what followed. In the midst of the yelling of the wind and the cannonade of thunder the ringing of an engiue bell fell on Kate's car. It was an engine which had been sent out from Boone to “feel along” the bridges and seo if tho twenty or more along this short line were safe for trains to cross. A moment later the engine crept out upon the bridge. There was a crash of breaking timbers, the thud of an engine’s plunge and the wild hissing of the water upon the hot boiler.

Little women should wear small hats and simple hair dress. One often hears a tall woman say when tr\ ing on a large hat: “Oh. I could not think of wearing this hat; why, it adds at least six inches to my height, and I think I am tall enough now.” And she forthwith proceeds to buy a little bit of a hat scarcely distinguishable from her Psyche knot. But if she wore a large hat the head would appear larger and in better proportion to the body.—Sr. Louis Post-Dispatch.
