Miss Willard went to Cincinnati
June 20, for attendance upon the
prohibition convention which met
in that city June 29 and 30. She
presided over a mass temperance
meeting Sunday afternoon in Cen
tral Music hall, which holds ten
thousand people. This convention
had 1,191 accredited delegates, the
largest number of any national
political convention held in the
United States this 3rear.
- The last -vestige of the state debt
of Iowa has recently been liqui
dated. Iowa, it will be remem
bered, is a prohibition state.
Out of 2,700 Congregational min
isters in Kngland and Wales, at
least 1,000 are abstainers; of 361
students, 320 are abstainers.
THE PROHIBITION CONVENTION.
The national convention of the
prohibition party met at Cincinnati
last wjek, Represei ta'ion in
this convention is based on the vote
polled by the party in the different
states instead of on the number of
congressmen and senators apian
which it is proposed shall be adopt
ed hereafter by republican conven
tions. The number of delegates in
the. prohibition convention, if all
attend, will be 1,091, and it is expect
ed th.it everybody who has a right
to a seat will be present.
This will be the sixth convention
national, state, district and county
and would make any amount of
helpful sentiment. If this sugges
tion strikes our members favorably
they will, of course, feel perfectly
tree to act upon it.
Fly, poppied drowse, away!

How the Wends pance.
The serska reja is a pantomimic dano.
Each couple has its own turn of leading.
The cavalier places hia partner In front
of him, facing her, and while the band
keeps playing and the company singing
one of those peculiarly stirring Wendish
dance tunes he sets about adjuring her
to grant him his desire and dance with
him. She stands stock still, her arms
hanging down flop by her side. The
cavalier capers about, shouts, strikes
his hands against his thighs, kneels,
touches his heart with the more dra
matic force the better. At length the
lady gives way, and in token of consent
raises her hand.
Briskly do the two 6pin around now
for the space of eight bars, after which
for eight more they perform sometliing
like a cross between a chassez croisez
and a jig, and so on for a little while,
after which the whole company joins in
the same performance. As a finish th&
cavalier "stands" the band and his part
ner some liquor, and a merry round
dance concludes his turn of leading to
the accompaniment of a tune and song.

Compress Heater and Sterilizer.
A useful appliance has been intro
duced in hospitals in the shape of a com
press heater and sterilizer. There is no
moistening or wringing of hot cloths
necessary. It does away with the use of
oiled silk or cotton, as it cannot wet bed
clothes and will retain heat longer than
the ordinary compress, and the com
presses may be applied to different pa
tients without washing, as they may be
easily sterilized and freed entirely from

THE PERFECT FRIEND.
One only friend we hare
One only love Is ours
That will endure.
All other friends are dean
He knows how dear
Who gave them for oar Joy
And solace here.
All other loves are sweet;
He knows how sweet
Of whom sad souls that lack
For love entreat.
But friends however trne
This life will test.
And they will fall ns oft
Who know us best.
And loves however strong
In time may change;
Misfortunes may divide,
' New ties estrange.
Sorest of all will come
Some sad offense;
11 Intrust will chill, and doubt
Drive friendship hence.

What yet we own
One only perfect friend
Hath any known!

Tbe Transition of Electrical Theories.
To the question, "What is electricity?"
which is often asked, no absolute and
satisfactory answer has yet been found.
Notwithstanding the wonderful develop
ment of electrical applications, elec
tricians are still feeling their way as to
the nature and many of the principles
of the operation of the mighty force that
they are learning to control. This was
suggestively shown by a remark made
by the vice president of the American
institute of electrical engineers at the
annual convention of that body.
The speaker claimed that the present
theories of electricity should be regard
ed merely as stepping stones to more
comprehensive and satisfactory ones.
He contended that modern theories of
electrical phenomena, if adopted as an
absolute framework of all our knowl
edge of these subjects, may, in a few
years, become prison bars that will pre
vent the mind from making a free and
unprejudiced investigation of new theo
ries and new phenomena, and giving
due weight and significance in the gen
eral science of electricity to the results
obtained by the most recent experiment
ers. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
