-fke following is a condensation of an article in The New York Times by Ben p Truman:
•0ue hundred and twcnty-ono years on the loth of May, Juan Crespi, a fear of the order of Bt. Francis, accompanied bv twenty-six soldiers, three parkland four or live Indian servants, arrived at San Diego, Gal., with the pur-poseof establishing a permanent mission, converting the savages and introducing the arts of civilization—and those purposes were not only s- lemnly and religiously. hut commercially and success-fnllv, carried out. The settlement was permanent, but. it was not made so without the encountering of disturbing ele-[ jpcnts, and. in two or three cases, loss of fife was involved. I '.el ce .titan On‘spits
name as f and* r, however, gives way historically to Padri Juniper© Berra, who arrived at Ban Diego July 1, ITG!), and who at once formally founded tile first mission in California, at what is now known as old Ban Diego, where tho padre wrote—in a record which I once saw in the possession of tile presiding priest in February, ISG! -"it v.as maintained for gve years, raid various buildings were erected with. ira ae labor than benefit to the minion* all < f them having been afterward appropri.it I to the use of tho garrison, etc.
As I have stated, this mission was permanent and otic us soon followed, ©til nearly all of the great valleys borderin'? cai the Pacific where there were harbors or read.-mads were marked by mission churches and commercial structures from Bon Diego to Ban Francisco, and New Caid -mi a. as if, was then called. took its place as one of the occupied provinces of i lie Spa in sh empire.
The Jesuit sn ci‘ b: a tsked from .1 Texico in Jane, DCT, and I lie king gave ord that the Jesuit mission in Low forma should not be abandoned, lint should he placed iii charge of Franciscan friars,who were. next to the Jesuits, tho most active and zealous missionaries in New Spain (Mexico'..

I .1 Dance?
Ill the sunday edition of a tow secular daily■ journal published i„ N«v York city the question is askc(1 ..Jr g“;_
harts Danced Ans-,vers follow from To less distinguished arsons than Ardo bishop Corrigan, tho Rev. Dr R s.
nloT’. 1°P ' mceBt «t.d others whose
names are familiar to tho public. With-
out attempting to quote all that is said
by these leading mon, we may snatch a
sentence of each of tho three mentioned.
Thus Archbishop Corrigan writes: “Tho
question how far a Christian may in-dulge in any form of worldly mentis one meriting the most consideration. There can be no doubt in considering the diversion you name! teat nil kinds of round dancing are contrary to piety.”
Bishop Vincent remarks that “in the dance there must bo at some point a peril, 01 so many wise and good people would not have written, taught and preached against, it. It has bomi raid, •To the pure all things are pure,’ but! alas, who are tho pure, and how many such are there? Let those dance who will; tho humble, earnest, consistent Christian, who desires to consecrate his or her every word and act to (’brist, will deem ^ it wrong and inconsistent to dance. ’ Br. Storrs concludes his letter on tho subject with these wise words: “We should never, under any circumstances whatever, ask ourselves, ‘How far ma J I go in indulgence ii amusements and still remain a Christian?’ How much, not how little, in the way of personal service and self denial can I render to the Lord? is tho question which should constantly be present in the mind of tho true Christian disciple.” —Exchange.

One remarkable feature of tho recent session of the supremo lodge, Knights of Pythias, at Milwaukee was the fact that two of the supremo officers elected are Californians. The Pythian Triangle Record describes them in this way:
George B. Shaw, the new supreme chancellor, was born in Alma, Alleghany county, N. Y., March 12, 1854. Ile became an active member of the order during its infancy in Wisconsin, lining initiated in Eau Claire lodge, No. IG, of Eau Claire, of which he is still a member. Ile was elected grand prelate of the grand lodge of Wisconsin in 1S70, grand chancellor in 1877, supreme representative in 187S, supreme inner guard in 1880, supreme master at arms in 1882 and re-elected in 1884, and in 1887 the grand lodge of Wisconsin again elected him supreme representative. Bro. Shaw was elected supreme vice chancellor in 1888.
Col. Morrison was bora in Calais, Mo., Nov. 8, 1843, and emigrated to California in 1859. and in 1864 removed to Nevada. He became early identified with the K. of P. in that state, represented Mystic lodge, No. 3, at the grand lodge session held at Carson, 187(5; was elected grand chancellor at. the n i nt h annual session of t he grand of No

Have you a finger Bible? It's tile latest thing to hang wit ii the rest of tho danglers and janglers on one's chatelaine. The theory that th o fashionable girl does not consult the good book outride of Lent is thus conclusively disproved. The finger Bible is only an inch wide and three and one-half inches long. It is published by the Oxford university press and printed on very thin India paper. It doesn’t weigh an ounce. One that I saw had a jeweled clasp and was bound in perfumed leather. Its nearest neighbors were a tiny crystal bottle holding some*sort of cordial that swung on one side, and a small box holding a smaller powder puff that swung on the other.

Frederick Lewis. Prince of Wales, was initiated at a special lodge held at Ive tv by Dr. I);-uglifiers on the5th November, 1737. His brother, the Duke of Cumberland, was initiated in 1743. The Dukes of York, of Cumberland (grand master in 1782} and of Gloucester, sons of the Prince of Wales, were made respectively in 17*55, 17*57 and 17GG (tim first of the throe at Berlin), and were all granted the rank of P.

George IV, then Prince of Wales, was initiated by I--is uncle, the Duke of Cumberland, 1787, arid sn cee 'led him as grand master in 1790, rc-igaing on his accession to the throne in Isl:?, but retaining the title of patron. His brothers, the Dukes of York, of Clarence (William IV) and of Kent, were made in IAT, 1796 and 1790, the latter at Geneva.

Reasons for Rejecting Candidates—Other Items of Interest.
During the year 1889 Grand Medical Examiner Aliiiion examined 2,144 applications, including reinstatements; 1,956 have been approved and 188 rejected. The largest number rejected for any one cause is on account of family history. The next largest number on account of occupation. There were rejected on account of habits nineteen applicants. This includes the excessive use of alcoholic stimulants, tobacco, habitual use of opium, chloral or any other narcotic.
The grand lodge of Indiana, following in the wake of Kansas, Iowa and Missouri, has made The Indiana Recorder the legal assessment notice in Indiana, and every member will receive the paper at the expense of the grand lodge.
The Kentucky grand lodge has fixed the per capita for 1890 at $2.20, payable quarterly.
The Kentucky grand lodge will hereafter hold animal sessions, and will convene on the second Tuesday of February.
The clement of suspensions as affecting our death rate is one not always appreciated. In the jurisdiction of Michigan of the 20,0*10 members init iated only 15,000 remain, an i of the lossof 5,000 only 650 nave been by death. In New York 44,(XX) men have joined the order, and 30,500 remain; of the losses 11,500 have been by suspension and only 2,000 by death. The same is doubtless true of other jurisdictions. These lapses, while on many accounts to be regretted, have much todo in lessening the amount on the death of members.

Charles E. Meyer, in his recent historical sketch relating to Royal Arch Alasor.ry, affirms that Jerusalem chapter. No. 3, of Philadelphia, is the oldest chapter of Royal Arch Masons in tile world. Its minutes are complete from 17*57 to the present time. Bro. Meyer also claims that the Royal Arch chap; cr of Pennsylvania is the oldest in Ani'idea. It was organized in 1795 by the grand lodge of that jurisdiction, and continued to hold this subordinate position until INyq when it assumed the prerogative of an independent and sovereign body.
The A!asonia assemblies fell into disrepute, lavs were passed against them and their Ie; ality finally abolished in 1547.

The Albany Argus, in a description of a series of evolutions made by Palestine Commandery of New York city, says one of the last movements was very difficult, but was accomplished, apparently, with the greatest of ease. It was the formation of the word “Taylor,” a compliment to the eminent commander. When the letters were formed the men deposited their swords, retired aud w heeled into line, aud the swords then formed the name .“Taylor.” When in lino they doffed their helmets to their eminent commander, who returned the salute.

These tombs were of walled masonry and prepared under his direction in 1888. His casket was of white oak, manufactured under his jiersonal supervision and kept in his private room during the last fifteen years.

“If I had a dozen girls,” said a dear old lady whose sole hostage to fortune chanced to lie a boy, and one not very well trained at that, “I would have them all finish their education in a training school for nurses.” As she uttered this wise remark she was standing at the foot of a sick bed watching the very amateurish attempt of a well meaning but inexperienced hand to arrange the pillows, etc., to the satisfaction of an invalid. -And her remark was heartily echoed by both amateur nurse and the poor sick one, whose nerves were being rasped by the kindly meant but unavailing attempts to render bim comfortable.
In these days of thoroughness of training in all lines of education, when schools of manual training are regarded as decidedly the proper thing for the education of boys who have no idea of becoming mechanics, though trained to handle the tools; when the particular talents of the young of either sex are sought out with serious attention and their educational upbringing all bent to t he one end of unfolding and developing that talent to a perfect whole, why should not the idea prevail of trait dng all young women to such a point iii nursing that they may have confidence in themselves when called upon (luring life's pathway to care for the sick? No matter what position a woman takes or is born to in this world, two tilings which she cannot escape are sickness and deal Ii. If the one comes not—as in rare instances—to herself, I know no woman who at one time or another has not been called upon to nurse some suffering fellow creature near aud dear.
IT Cot'LD HE TAUGHT AT SCHOOL.
Iu these days cf professional nurses, when all who can afford their expense bring them into their families at times of long or violent illness, the quiet peace and comfort which may be brought into a sick room is fully realized. But the vast majority of educated persons pecuniarily are debarred from indulging in such expensive luxuries and their sick ones suffer. Suppose in the depart meat of physical training, which is being added to most girls’ as well as boys’ schools, a branch of nursing was included, how many mothers do you suppose could be induced to pen a letter of excuse to the head of tho school framed iu some such language as this: “Kindly excuse my daughter from the extra fatigue of pursuing this new study. I feel that she is already sufficiently taxed.”
I hardly believe that in all our w ide land there is one who would have so little thought for her daughter’s fat ii re as this; on the contrary there would be a general feeling that even an important study would best be given up to gain a little knowledge of how easy it is to make the suffering more comfortable.
But such a giving up would not be necessary; the physical art of nursing could be taught in connection u h the gymnasium exercise in the de part tm 'its of physical culture, and a coal ffi' I* vt ares on this subject alone iie ad*leu to t ii • -t ady of physics. Why would it not develop 1 fie muscular power of the arms as perfectly to be taught how to take a suffering frame on one arm, and arrange tho hot and crumpled pillow with a few deft touches of tho otle r hand, jus to move up aud down a certain system of weighted machinery called “health lifts,” or to swing hack aud forth on rings suspended from ceilings?
But such a little thing as fixing the pillows, you say, wily any one can do that. Yes, so they can. But if you watch the look of expectancy and relief on the face of u sick person when he sees a ; "affied nurse about to do I his simple thing, aud tho sigh of satisfaction when she is I, A fie* I and lie is put back to ecol and absolute comfort; and again the anxiety and Gist mss so visibly depicted when he sees one of the family approach to do the same simple thing, and hear tho fretful voice exclaim afterward, “Oh, my pillows are not right:'’ it is easy enough sees that there are wa ys and ways of doing things.
IT IS NAT UK AL TO SOMH.
There are persons, as we Jill know, whom nature has endowed with a wondrous gentle tourii. a magnetic vitality, a thoughtful, far sering care, and these persons we call n a ax. nurses. Strange as it may si em. they are not in many cases dainty, gentle little women, but great, strong and often rough men, who seem to the ordinary ob-*-aver better fitted for training horses th..a L r the care of rn invalid. I can think of such a one now as I write— an awkward, tuna aril, loud void'd being, but who in sick ness changes as under some magic touch. 'J lie most fastidious invalid gains vigor and repose from his very words subdue t hem-encouraging and in-
hot enough to j>enetrate or melt glass. Another curious idea is to chipa fragment out of tho chimney so as to enable it to ex pan I more readily. In chipping out t he piece half tho time a small crack is made, and tho first excessive heat the glass endures terminates its existence.

If there is one thing more than another that I have been all my life begging, xvi th tears in my eyes, women to dc, it is to read newspapers and keep alongside of current events, r< ad telegraphic reports, doings of congress,editorials. The woman who does so us three times the woman who does not. More than two months ago an eastern bank failed and went into tile hands of a receiver, who had nothing to speak of to receive. The shaky condition of the bank had be**'n known for some time before the final closing to those who kept their eyes open. But a few days ago a girl with a satchel on her arm walked into the bank building, which now lv ld nothing but the receiver, the useless leather bound Looks and the empty safe. With a smile the girl went to the receiver and told him she had come to deposit some more money. “Did you have money in this bank?” asked the agent. “Yes.” she answered, “all I have saved, $56.” And didn't you know the Kink failed two months ago?’ “No; I ti* ver heard of it,” exclaimed the frightened girl. “Don't yon read the newspapers?” said the receiver. “No, said she, **I never do.” Then she fell off in hysterics. That is what women who never read newspapers do—go into hysterics.
The Queen Isabella Journal is the name of a neat little quarterly designed to promote the interests of women at the World’s fair in lri*2. Directly it will foster the recognition of Isabella of Castillo in the matter of th© discovery of America, for had it not been for this high spirited queen, who pawned her jewels to give CA luinbus his outfit when the oth* r sovereigns of Europe had refused aid. America would certainly not have been discovert I the year it was. The headquarters of The Qm * n Isabella Journal are Bay State building. 70 State street, Chicago. The association that publishes it will erect at the World’s fair an Isabella pavilion as a business and social headquarters for all members and others visiting the fair. and any one can become a member of the association by paying a dollar. The Queen Isabella association will, during til** Chicago fair, unveil a beautiful statu** of Queen Isabella. This is to b“ the work of woman's hands. Harriet Hosmer is to make it.

To an impartial observer it would seem as if there* were no excuse for the badness of modern Ament an roads.

Tin* Virtue iii Salads.
M. Henri de Yilmorin, president of tho Botanical society of France, lectured before tho Royal Horticultural society outlie subject of salads, lie spoke of iii" nutritive value of salads, due to the potash salts, which, though present in vegetables generally, are eliminated in the processor cooking. These are acme of the plants ho enumerated its being used iii France for salads: Lettuce, coru salad, common chicory, barb" do capul in, curled and Batavian endives, dandelion in its several forms of green, watercresses, purslane in small quantities, blanched salsify tops. Brussels chicory, tho roots of celeriac, rampion and radish, the bulbs of st aches, the stalks of celery, tile flowers of nasturtium and yucca, the fruit of capsicum and tomato; and in the south of Franco rocket, pieridium and Spanish onions. Various herbs are added to a French sal,ad to garnish and flavor it—chervil, chives, shallot and borage flowers. In addition, many boiled vegetables are dressed with vinegar and oil. The lecturer exhibited specimens of dandelion, barbe de capulin and witloof, both varieties of chicories, which he commended to the notice of gardeners as most useful and palatable.—Cor.

I regard the interest tab n in physical culture by young and old women ax ;rt-haps tho most hopeful sign • ' development among women in our time.

But sho is gone, and, please heaven, she is gone for good. The Berkley Ladi* v Athletic club of New York rn an organization of women of high social standing—that is. a genuine school of physical development. Tile gymnasium contains appliances for severe and thorough development of the I>ody. Au extraordinary desire for th*' ideal jx rfection of the body has sprung up iii this country and in England which approximates the notions of the ancient Greeks on this subject. This will bring magnificent results if with it go* s the clear understanding that to gain the ideal beauty woman’s intellectual and spiritual development must go l and in hand with the physical. "While the muscles grow strong and graceful the spirit must grow strong, too. and gentle and sweet tempered and unselfish, learning tho broad, kindly tolerance that distinguishes the great soul from the mean one. Then will come the perfect woman, the dream of prophets and enthusiasts for ages.

Mr. Smith from the first day of May until the last day of October sends at least one wagon heavily loaded with tho products of his farm t * the city market. In order to get the load there early enough he has to start it from tho farm as early as 2 o’clock in tho morning, for it takes three long hours to travel ov».-r the ten railes of int-rv*ning mud, sand and stones. After a rain or when from any other cause the roads are in a worse condition than usual the loads have to start as early as I o’clock or even ,xr midnight.
When the load finally gets to the city the horses are tired out completely, the driver is weary and dDgusri d with life, much of the freshness has been jolted out of the load, and as likely as nota particularly deep rut cr two has <• rased some part of the wag" . to break under the strain.
