A cordial invitation iscxten- _ed by the masons of that city to all ncmbers of the order to be pre.scnt. This is the way Homer Branch's Mitchell paper, the Temperance Power, lepicts town conditions under the com- jincd influences of seeding time and a Democratic interregnum: "Towns de- pendent upon country trade arc enjoy- ng a rest from the mad rush of busi- ness during spring work, and towns dependent upon factory trade arc liv- ng on thin, so they say." Kansas has an improved brand of ;hc Kangaroo ballot, one of its previ- ous being that "the lower limbs of the voterr. ,-us hiRH up ii. the knees shall be visible from the outsietowhilc the voter is in the booth preparing the tickets the lower part of the booth having been left open for that purpose.

An Am- erican "professor" has just been ar- rested in Germany for swindling peo- ple.

It would have been a bigger swindle, on this side the water, if the fellow had made good his professions. NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES. Ex-Senator L. S. Hanchctt lies dead at his home in of paralysis. He was 51 years old, an independent in politics and a fair and able man. While watching a game of base ball, near St. Cloud, Minn., Fred L.

It will weed out some of the doggeries. Plymouth, despite its comparatively small size, entertained the Epworth League convention with a hospitality which was royal.

And as a fur- ther prouf of this we read that among the early Christians there were no poor, for they had ali things in common. But what a gap between that theory and the practise of to-day! What a mockery of Christ's teachings is Chris- tianity as practised! What a chasm, growing ever deeper, has opened up between what Christ tanght and what his professed followers do'. What a breach, ever widening, has been made between Christ's church and those for whom Christ was ever solicitous and for whom he was always filled with compassion the multitude! The church, to be sure, keeps its open and professes to extend a welcome to all. But the time is long since past when a large portion of the people eeased to regard the invitation as made in good faith, and those versed in sta- tistics claim that the increase in church membership does not at all keep pace with the increase in population. What is the reason? Why docs so large a share of the people stand aloof from the church, the one institution of all others where they should find com- fort, help and relief? Is it because the teachings of the Nazarenc arc anti- quated and not applicable to the con- ditions of to-day, or is it because these conditions have moved further and further away from the teachings until the two have become opposing forces? Let tis compare teachings and condi- tions for just a moment. The teach- ings with which we now have to do were something like this: "Go, sell that thou hast and give it to the "Lay not up etc.: and the series of meetings there this week, and conditions, which began by a literal fulfillment of these directions, havi: Asand storm at Watcrtown, S.

But few men ever live to cele- brate their sixty-first birthday twice. They have high winds or great pre- varications at Lake Bcnton, Minn. A correspondent states that a wind storm which prevailed there last Saturday blew the grain from the ground, and foreod the .water of the lake one mile inland, leaving tons of fish In the mud. This is no fish story. After the wind went down the water which had taken to the woods came back and went to FOK MEMORIAL DA Y. Kendall Post, No. 142, G. A. R.. will meet at their headquarters at r.

A lot of brainy women got together in convention in Philadelphia, a few days ago, and among other things em- phatically and unanimously rcsolutcd in favor "of a single standard of moral- ity for men and women. Ladies, we beg of you, don't swap the gold stand- ard for the debased currency which circulates among naughty men. If we must all come to the one standard, let it be your own. The editor of a populist paper in Kansas was at home, prostrated by ty- phoid fever, his wife at the same time being down with diphtheria and his daughter a victim of scarlatina. And the printer's a., probably wishing to enact the part of an angel oi consola- tion, clipped from a plutocratic sheet and published this item: "Typhoid fever, diphtheria and scarlatina are getting to be almost as prevalent and pernicious as populistic doctrines. mi n oreover they are the outcome of hu man ignorance, stupidity, laziness, and filth, rather than the visitations of right and those who cannot pay are tolerated. But who is responsible? Through what agency has the church of Christ degenerated from that which it should be to that which it is? It may be said that man's selfishness and greed lie at the bottom of this as of nearly all the evil conditions which to-day beset us; and doubtless that answer would con- tain the main substance of the truth in the matter. But have these tendencies been combatted with due diligence and vigor by those whose duty it was to truths Christ taught as He taught them and not as the varying cir- cumstances made it expedient to them? In brief: Has the ministry of Christ been faithful to hig-h trns-t and has it so taught those committed to its charge that their lives became living witnesses to the divinity of the le taxation.

To enrich this country in the future I have decided to modi fy Temiah's terms so that every owner of a good marc can afford to breed to him. The fee is SIS to insure a mare with fml. Should the foal die, I will breed the mare free the following season. Up'in tht-sc terms you can surely af- ford to use Tomah', and I would sug- gest that you book at an early date. Already the best marcs in the vicinage of Nurthwood are booked to Tomah.
