hate to see a change, they want the city

"Honor and shame from no condition
rise, act well your part, there all the
honor lies."' It is a ttrangc peculiarity
of man, who, if he is made after God's
image, is not of God's teachings. He is
full of adulation, Mattery and fawning
fiyeoplianj', which is practiced by, at
ltat, one half the people of this universe.

acquired it, if it was by running a baw--dy-hoini;.

ety winks at thu past and admits him in
to their circle. We have seen m.:u and
wouu-n as gross and coarse in their man
ners at table, or in public place, us pigs
in a car going to market. Their speecli
would be illiterate and their actious vul
gar in the extreme. Innumerable dia
mond rings would deck their bloated
fiugevs. Tho men wear enormous, heavy
watch cliivus and diamond studs as thick
as they can place them down their shirt
bosoms, while the women besides finger-
rings, have omamcnt3 of precious stones
in their hair, ears, and around their
pudgy necks, while often they carry two
gold watches inlaid with precious stones
and attached to heavy gold chains,
which they place conspicuously on what
resemble a butcher's meat-block covered
with parchment and powdered over.
They remind one of a jewelers show-case
arranged with very bad taste. But they
have money, and that puts the brand ot
gentility on their bar of soap.
. come are born to .greatness, some

very often fails to achieve greatness in
thi3 world, while the dealer in animal

There is always a lot of unmentorious
trash running at the heels of such per
sons, scekinjr some favor, if it is only a
smile of recognition the " Uriah Heep "
:s lost in a blazs of buss, but let mis
fortune overtake his benefactor, and
then ha don't know hiia from a crow.
As he sinks lower in tho sea of adversity,
he does his best from pure essence of in
herited "cussedness," to push him fur
ther down, and add3 insult to injury, by
using every injurious phrase his shallow
pate is capable of conceiving to injure
his reputation among his fellow-man.
Poveity is a sin, but salvation is cheap
that's the poor man's birthright, which
no "trust'' can control, although there
are plenty of persons a3 m?au as the man
who employed his brother t: work for
him. They both attended their father's
1'iiucral and when they returned from
the graveyard, the employer stopped his
brother's pay for the time he had lost.
Such persons would try and make
God's promise of salvation an article of
commerce and sell it so much per ounce.
It is the same with health: ' If health
were a thing that money could buy, the
rich would live and the poor would die."
Poveity has the consolation of know
ing that after all their earthly cares are
over, the proud, h mghty snob or syco
phant is compelled to grant them Gx2J
feet of real estate to rest their weary
bones until tho trumpet calls them to
place where there is no distinction made
between peer or peasant.
Evangelistic Meetings-
About a hundred of the workmen in
the shops enjoyed the sinking and ad
dresses of the evangelists for 25 minutes
aftsr dinner.
In the afternoon some three hundred of
the school children enjoyed a like privi
In the evening a large congregation

Rev. Mr. Clagttt.considered some of
the excuses given for not accepting the
invitation to the Marriage Supper of the
Lamb. One of these excuses was because
tlu-te are hypocrites in the church. If
horror of hypocrites is genuine, it will
lead to choosing to enter the way to
heaven for there are no hypocrites there.
Another excuse is I have no time to
attend to religion. The Sabbath was
given to prepare for heaven. If you are
fourteen years old you have had two
years of Sabbaths. If you nic fiftyyears
old you have had seven jears of Sali
batli3. What have you done with all
thi time? How long does it require to
make up your mind that you will accept
the gift of eternal life and belitve on
Jesna Christ. You spend from three to
ten years in learning a trade or profession
that you may care for your body, yet
cannot spare five minutes to prepare for
Many other common excuses were
shown to be equally worthless.
After the sermon some twenty rose for
"Its an idle wind that don't blow
somebody some good." In speaking with
a viitcr to this city today he remarked
that Ii2 had been greatly benefited by the
strike, because on that account he had
had about 400 cars of grain delayed at
several points along ths B. & M. which
he was enabled to deliver the other day,
when prices had advanced so much, that
he netted about $12,000 abovo what he
would have done had his grain been
promptly delivered.

Meets with Approval and Approbation-It
has never been th lot of our citi
zens to witness as competent a combina
tion of good actors and actresses, at the
low prices charged for admission, as will
adorn the stage of Waterman Opera
House for the remainder of this week.
Last night a full house appreciated the
performance, the audience quickly re
cognized the ability of the performers of
whom they speak highly today.
It would take too long an article to
speak of each individual uctor and as all
dispbtyed marked talent, they are equally
deserving of prais, but for the sake of
courtesy, we can not omit mention of
the ladies who were cast in characters
that require natural ability and years of
stage experience for their proper rendi
tion. Miss Mate Stevens as "Chonchon"
played her part with a vim and vivacity
that was truly charming, and we should
judge from that lady's "chic" that she
would make an excellent comcdy-sou-brette.
Miss Maud Durantl who "doubled"
Margaret" (th mother of Mark) and
the "Marchioness, " is an actress of great
emotional power and dignified deport
ment. Miss Eunice Goodrich's ability has to
be 6cen, when praise is cheerfully ac
corded and her histronic powers admired
The spelling of the words contained in
a letter proved that she has a wvnderful
conception of facial expression as shown
in her looks of fear, distrust, ea .erness
for sympathy, artless innocence, and un
requited love. Her beautiful modulated
tones of voice when expressing surprise
or cheerful acquiescence to a request were
great aids in gaining the good will of
the audience. The mad scene was a fine,
subtle piece of acting. " Wild flowers,"
which ends with the line "Bring I, these
sweet, sweetest flowers," was very
sweetly sang. When the line, "and you
and you and you- and you," is sung,
between every pause, the actress throws
roses among the audienco. That part,
was a happy thought, and was the cause
of a great deal of pleasure among those
who were fortunato to catch the flowers
as they fell.
Oue fine scene was where the daughter
" Mrits " (Miss Goodrich), i3 about to
leave home for Paris and the mother
"Margaret " Miss Maud Durand), gives
her daughter her blessing in the follow
ing words:
Let virtue and in.lus.iy gtiMu tlise,
To lieaveu turn til n- ee ;
Tlii l'rt of thy mother's ble sn.
Vliii-li !! a.'.cecils on l.ili.
Gcd is fver ji'sf ;
To i;im f ' fare e tnuf,
Virttns wiih tliee ever ilwi-ll.
Farewell ! far will !
Tonight they play " D-ul's Boy." Go
aud sec them. Joy will taka Mia place
of regret, and broad minded ideas that
of coufiued cupidity and egotism.
"i'yo Kothing to Live for Now."
"I'm lonely in the house since my wife
died." These sad words were uttered on
the street the other day by an old farmer
while he was conversing with a stranger.
From a conversation we elicited the fact
that the old gentleman owned a farm
near the city, where he had lived for a
number of years, and where he had mar
ried his beloved wife and raised his child
ren. For a few years laughter and merry
footsteps echoed through that dwelling.
On Sundays the wagon would be got
ready and they would all attend church
to offer thanks to the Creator for His
blessings during the past week.
The partner of life joys and sorrows
died. He and the children would still
attend church and "he'd see his children
sitting there, he hears his daughter's voice;
he reeds must think of her no more,
though in the grave he lies, and with his
hard and horny palm wipes a tear from
out his eyes."
Two of the children died, but before
their death, one of them, wh'Ie in good
health, says "Papa, when you are old an I
gray and 1 gro v to bo a man, if we
should die and go to Heaven, will mamma
know 3 then."
The other two children got married,
and the old man is left alone on the farm.
He sa'd, "you don,t know how lonely
I feel now, I ain't able to read a book, to
work, or to do anything. I wander up
and down the stairs and through the
rooms and sometimes fancy I hear the
footsteps of my clear children or the voice
of my dear wife. I seem so certain, some
times, that they are near me, that I stop
and look around, but now they are all
gone. Often, I will go through the trunks
and bureau drawers, and every article I
see will bring fond recollections of my
departed wife and children. There is
baby's shoes and dregs and Tommy's
whips and toys, my wife's bible and her
clothes hanging on the wall, just as they
were the day when she died. Some of
the flowers that strewed her coffin are
laying withered in a vase on 'the table,
everything I see makes me feel sad at
heart. I will have to sell my farm and
come and live in town, perhaps the ex
citement will help me forget my troub
les. Young man, it may scein 6trange to
you, but you don't know wh.nt an old
man suffers vrho has lost all he loved on
earth, and tho old man wept, as he sobb
ed, "rvenothing to hve for now.''
There aro certain diseases, too, which in
their very nature protest against their own
existence. Tliey nro really nature's indig
nant outcries against human perversity; they
ore absolutely preventable, anrl just on that
account diCleult to euro, becauso tho pre
ventable causo is always happening again.
To this class bclon; diseases of the stomach,
with scarcely an exception. Dys;ep.sia alono

that of tho adult i)o;ulut ion not o:io person
in ten is free from it, aiid yet dys'pnia, is an
entirely prcvcnlublo disease, oiio for which
which there, ifj absolutely no exeuso, for it

or ignoranei:-; and even where there i.a
an inherited tendency to stomach trouble,
caro and attention to diet cun almost invari

The misfoi t u:io is not oidy that people will
not exorcise suuicii tit self-doiiiul to prevent
tho appearance of discasu in tluj llrbt in

This waist is designed to meet the requirements of ladies who
cannot, comfortably, wear a still and rigid corset, while it can lie worn
with as much comfort as an ordinary dress waist. It will give tho
same cleg aiice of contour as the heaviest honed corEet in the market,
while the stays are so arrarged thtit they will give fuj ort to the lack
and spine and in nowise interfere with the freedom and comfort
ot the wearer. The weight of the clolhirg is transferred frcm the
hips to the shoulders by means of the shoulder-fcti Hps, which aie ad
justable to suit any form or length of waist.
