Riches: rho load of them troubles, the love of thorn taints, the loss of them tortures.—Bishop of Derry. The soul is tho life of tho body, faith is tho life of tho soul, and Christ is tho life of faith.—Flavel. I owed thousands, and much more; I did believe that I did nothing owe, And lived accordingly. My creditor Believes so, too, and lets me go. — Herbert. j Tho Bible warns us against “the do- I coit fulness of bin," and tliero is good reason for tho warning. Sin always promises more than it performs, and always allures its victim into that which is sure to bo an evil to him. The simple truth is t hat sin is notoriously and habitually a liar; and this fact every one at last finds out who makes sin tho chosen companion of his life. It will surely lead him to his own ruin. — Independent. It is a great mistake to suppose that we believe what we do not actively and consciously disbelieve. The condition oT many is to do neither tho one nor the other. They do not think of God's word as true or false. They simply think nothing about it and care nothing about it. This purely negative c ndition of mind leads to a course of life that has all the evil properties of conscious and active disbelief. It is a state of indifference that treats religion as if it had no claims on the heart.—Independent. It is a noteworthy circumstance that the first Japanese parliament, elected on the 1st of last July, contains ten Christians, or one in thirty of the whole number of members. The Christians were elected in tho face of much opposition to them on account of their religion. It has been well said that “it is a religious duty to perform all real civil duties,” and that “it is not a civil duty to perform religious duties.'’ Civil society BURLINGTON IOWA.

He does not, however, authorize civil society to prescribe and enforce the duties which men owe to him. The moment it attempts to do this it exceeds its sphere, and becomes an oppressor.—Independent. An international temperance c ngress was recently held in Christiania, Norway. The president of the congress, tho director general of tho Norwegian Corps of Physicians. Dr. Dahl, said in his opening address t liar, so far as Norway is concerned, the battle bxs been fought on Christian principles. Moral reforms, apart from religion, are practically un known in Norway, and temperance workers have found it necessary to go forward in God s name, asking for his blessing on their labors. Leo. G. Bennett, United States Indian agent in the Indian Territory, with jurisdiction over many thousand Indians, iii a recent repoto gives great credit to the Christian missionaries for the moral advancement of the five tribes. His report shows that the Baptists, Methodists and Presbyterians have invested large sums iii church property, that the number of churches and schools under their supervision has been greatly increased, and there is a growing interest among the Indians in religious matters. Life is not a b diday. hut an education, and the one < tertial how we can live Drummond. No one has a right fluity of evidence on ligious belief or dr _ idence than God has seen fit to ie condition of such belief or of discharging the duty imposed by the evidence already given.

But it gets put together, and it is beautiful and large and v. hole somewhere.—Mrs the city from a halcuiiy around the lantern 120 feet from the sidewalk. 'I he ground floor will be occluded ny four stores. The main entrance will be in the middle of the St. Charles street front. The second floor will be devoted entirely to eleven offices. The third floor will correspond with t ho second except that the space of two of the offices will be taken up by the library, 24 by 53 feet, with wide windows at each end and the walls lined with bookcases. Tile fourth flour will ct u-tain three lodge rooms, of which the grand lodge, 41 j by (.'A feet, will occupy t he cor nor. The antc-room will be like tho library, 24 by 53 feet. The lift a floor will be devoted to the chapters, commanderies and Scottish rite bodies, and corresponds with the fourth in its general arrangements. The chapter and commandery rooms and the green room have vaulted ceilings from 21 to 28 feet high, aud are lighted by t he upper I raeericd port ion of the treble and quadruple large windows, tlie chapter room, 31 by 53, occupying the corner and having an ample gallery over the ante-rooms. It is separated from the commanderies by a hall reaching to St. diaries street, On '.Lie details of this floor much attention was given by the committee to have it complete. One or more artesian wells will provide the water needed for general purposes. The grand lodge has decided upon expending the sum of £ HAYXX) on the new st meture. A. O. U. W. bekah degree also increased 203 In mem bcrship. I p to Isso inc degrees were numbered mid named hirst, or \\ bito degree; Second, or Covenant degree; Third, or Royal Blue degree; fourth, or Remembrance degree, and Fifth, or Scarlet degree. In 1S30 the degrees were revised and reduced to three in the subordinate lodge. The first is the degree of I rieudship; second, the Degree of Brotherly Ix>ve; third, tho Degiee of Truth. I lie term ‘‘initiatory degree” is used simply to designate the first step in the order. A lodge was recently instituted in San Jose, Ca!., in which the charges in the initiation were given in Norwegian. St. Louis has one of the wealthiest lodges in the world. Lodge No. 5 of that city has si OO, OOO in the treasury, $75,000 being in government bonds. A Rochester, N. IL, lodge has a full orchestra composed of members of the lodge.

Pennsylvania stands at th • head of the list ill everything. Several new Chieftains’ leagues are shortly to be instituted in Indiana, Superior Recorder Scampton, of Massachusetts, writes that Chieftains’ leagues in that state are having a boom, and that a number of new leagues will soon lie insti-t u ted. Minnetonka tribe, No. 2S4, of Philadelphia, has moved into a new wigwam at the corner of Third and Thompson streets, and is in an excellent and flourishing condition. Petitions have been received by tile great chiefs of Pennsylvania for a tribe to be located ut Franklin Forks, Susquehanna county, aud for a tribe to be instituted at Shamokin. llobomok tribe, of Boston, known as the Masonic tribe, has over IOO candidates waiting to be adopted. The new tribe to be instituted at Newton, Mass., will start with a membership of IOO. The lull in the work of instituting tribes in Indiana and Massachusetts is only temporary, and in a few seven suns the great chiefs will have plenty of work kindling new council tires. Tribe No. 120, Blairstown, N. J., has doubled its membership during tho past seven moons. A new tribe will soou bo instituted in S ui Francisco. An Interesting Dissection* of Subject by Mrs. Leslie. the Ouarrtltt of I,overs—Women’* Quarrels— Onarreln of Friends—Comradeship Between Man ami Woman — Hill and Her Mode. I have said a good deal at one time and another about friendship, claiming fur it perhaps the highest place iii tin* scale of the happiness of life—r .!, mind j'on, of the pleasures of life, for the delirium of love brings a rapture which friendship never attains. But on the other hand all love is of the nature of 11 j grippe. It seizes vivacious^', it dings] tenaciously, it rapidly attains a domi- I nation over the whole being, before I which every other sensation pales, awd j then it vanishes. Its rise is position, it I attains its climax, during which some I victims expire, and all lam v they are j going to, and then- flint if begins to • disappear, slips from one hoi I to an- ' other, and finally leaves the system j worn, torn, free—t hat I.-bode soon loses sensible expostulation, •basing her reproaches ujion jealous care for her friend's reputation with otherpeople, as, “Of course I can understand and make allowances, but I do hate to have you give other people such a handle for gos sip or ridicule—I hate to see you appear stupid or rude,” or \vhaP V‘-r the peg may Ik* called upon which the quarrel is to lie hung. If at.this stage tile male friend had the intuition that male friends never do have, and said, “Oh, well, you understand me, an I it really don't matter what other people think,’’ the quarrel would be nipped in the bud, tile craving woman heart, never altogether subjected to tile brain, would be satisfied and the cloud on the horizorcxvould turn pink and sail away out of sight. But instead of this the man will either .-tare aud say, “What nonsense! What do I care fin the opinion of. a plack of fools’:" or he will d fend himself, in-trem ’ling a position In* really never meant to hold, simply lieeauso it is attacked, and if lie is a very mannish kind of a luau will end in obstinately per-Ating in opinions which an hour before lie never dr'‘.'lined of.

The lodges in Colorado are particularly active in conferring degrees and in providing so; ial entertainment this season thus far. A special train on the Union Pacific carried Washingt on and Arapahoe lodges to Brighton recent ly, where the crack team of the state conferred the am pl I tied third rank in the presence of nearly 400 brethren. The statistical records from the office of the grand keeper of records and seal show the membership in the jurisdiction of the order June 30 to have been 8,969, five new lodges having been instituted ainee that date, increasing the membership at present to about '.Guo. The increase for year ending June 30, 1890, was 1,972, and for tho term ending same date, 1,405. The value of property held by the subordinate lodges amounts to $133,012.39. No one can appreciate the intrinsic excellent I* of the ritualistic work of the Order of Pythian Sisters until they have identified themselves with it. Says The Providence Sunday Journal: It is a masterpiece in rhetoric and deep in thought. Knights of Pythias throughout tho entire supreme jurisdiction are aroused over its rapid progress and its businesslike methods.

But friendship is built upon a rock foundation of esteem, knowledge, experience and observation. Yen like a stranger, you find him or her a pleasant acquaintance, you become inure and more familiar, and perhaps in the end you arrive at friendship; but it is a1 ways, if worth anything at all, a matter of growth and time. The Temple of Love arises from the flowers at one wave of the magician’s wand, is ready for habitation in an hour and vanishes with the like celerity. If some terrible quarrel demolishes the fair structure as by a hurricane the magician has but to wave his wand again, and everything is renewed just as rosily as at first. But the shrine of friendship is a far more elaborate structure, built up block by block, each one a precious stone fit ted to its exact position, growing by degrees under the hands and eyes of irs build' rs, meant to endure, fitted for lifelong occupancy, and yet quite useless for any other inmates than those who build it. If the friends are two women the chance is that this mutual structure will I>o a lifelong employment and happiness to both; and although it may be a very quiet and simple little dwelling, it may prove tho best refuge either will ever find iieriod of suspense well with her.

But if the friends are of opposite sexes there is again a difference. The friendship is different, the tendency to quarrels is different, the effect of both quarrel and reconciliation is different, in this case it is almost always the woman who a! Hts the quarrel, aud very probably the moving cause is that she is tired of tile serene and undemonstrative nature of lier friend’s friendship. She does not wish him to be a lover; she would be sincerely grieved and disappointed if he were to become so. but she wants him to “care,” and to show that he cares, for her and lier friendship; to say something to her that he does not say to other people; to I ic pleased when -Iv* appears upon tie* scene; to give her now and again that “little look across the crowd” which tpeak.. of sympathy and mutual comprehension of what we call rapport.

Falling into one of these*lapses the woman friend is ripe for a quarrel, and the occasion is never hard to find. Something that is said or not said, done or left undone, or even some fantasy of her own brain, is sufficient. She generally bfifll with a vary cool and Gaborateiy words of undisguised aud bi rn pie truth. “I was to blame that day—I ani sorry I - let us forget it." Probably the man, being bul a man, | looks bewildered and says. “What day j —what do you refer to?” But once started the woman nature j rises in a flood of sweet waters not lightly to be checked or turned aside. She explains with that sort of affectionate impatience women so often use t ward men, she waves aside that defense of his own course with which a man generally tries to r< vive tho quarrel he liat-s and dreads, silo explains lier own course—no, indeed, she doesn’t explain it. for she knows si ie would not bo understood, but silo says she had a headache and felt cross and tired, and it was t,»> bael of him not to pc re ive it. She is bright and sweet and v manly, she mak *s his value felt; she gently recalls the duration and constancy of his friendship; she re-* tablishes tho man’s self esteem, and finally they part “better friends than ever,” as she says and he echoes, and still in her heart she knows that there are blemishes remaining on ►he polished marbles of that temple of friendship which no effort and no time will wholly remove, ami she firmly resolves that so precious a possession shall never again be marred or risk a1 by act of hers.
