happy faces of the assembled guests.
The color scheme was carried out by
pink and lavender flowers, with a back'

guests under a canooy composed of

In memory of Edward Leo Johnson,
who died in Omaha, March 21, 189S.
"He rests iu God." this message came
To friends and loved ones here;
No more that loving voice will greet,
Parents and classmates dear.
We know that round his dying couch,
Bright angels lingering stood.
To strengthen in that dying hour
And bear his spirt home to God.
In that bright land of peace and joy.
No tear is shed, there is no pain.
No parting sad. no fears annoy.
He knoweth now "to die is gain."
Oh, year, at thy beginning.
If joy to others you did bring.
You surely brought aworld of grief
To those whose names In love we cling.
Oh, parents sad, and friends bereaved.
Think, think ye of these things, .
Like him to tread the path that leads
Unto the King of Kings.
Dear Master, Thou our helper be.
To follow as Thou lead the way.
Till we may dwell forever with Thee,
There is no parting one eternal day.
Sleep on, sleep on, thou pulseless heart.
Where heaven's stars drop golden rain
From every troubled thought apart.
Forgotten every earthly pain.
Sleep on, thy long repose is sweet.
Thy grave is green with grassy sod.
Oh, loved ones, list! a voice doth say.
"He sweetly sleeps, he rests in God."

How ranch property do British sub

THE CLERK'S MISTAKE.
Thought Rite Was a Hayseed TtecanHe She
Ordered a Kerosene Lamp.
Just after tho night clerk had come
on at the hotel and curled his mustache
to his liking his attention was called to
"Kerosene lamp for 237," requested
"Kerosene lamp?" echoed the clerk
as he whirled the register about. "Let
mo see. Blondly and wife of Plauker
villo in 237. I thought so. Never been
in a first class hotel before. Go back and
show them bow to use the electric light.
Wonder they didn't send for a tallow
candle," and the clerk tuck several of
the corridor loungers into his confidence.
"Lady says if this hotel can't afford
a lamp to send up a gas stove and send
it quick," said the bellboy, who had
made tha round trip in phenomenal
time. "She acts pretty hot. "
"Pretty cold, I should think. Go back
there aud open the register, shov the
lady how to usa tho water faucets and
how to tnrn off the electricity. Thank
tho Lord, sho can't blow it out."
The next word from 237 came with a
rush. It was brought by a vision of
loveliness, dressed in bewitching style,
her face flushed and her blso eyes throw
ing off sparks. "Make out ocr bill and
receipt it at cnee, " she said as her dain
ty foot beat time on the marble tiling.
"But, Mrs. Blondly"
"Attend to my order, sir. Include in
your bill a carriage aud an express wag
on to transfer us and our tilings and
tell Mr. Blondly when bo comes in that
he will find usat the other boii.-:e, where
we will spend the rest of tho season.
Understand, we must go at once. I
want to go to a hotel where it will bo
possible to warm some milk for baby
before the little angel starves to death."
Then the loungers had fun with the
clerk, and the best he could muster was
a sickly grin. Buffalo News.
Zola's I'roposed Lecture Tour.
It is reported that M. Zola has agreed
to come to the United States and deliver
about 15 lectures, relating probably to
anti-Semitism in France and to the trials
of Dreyfus and himself The arrange
ment is asserted to have been made with
Mr. Edmund Gerson of New York and
to have followed immediately upon the
decision of the French government to
grant M. Zola an appeal from the sen
tence of imprisonment lately pronounc
ed upon him. An interesting detail of
this report is that a sum approaching
00,000 is promised to M. Zola for his
visit. One could wish perhaps that that
detail had been omitted. M. Zola would
undoubtedly excite great interest here
and would draw fall houses, but he
most interests Americans at present in
his character, lately assumed, of patriot
and protestaut against prejudice and in
justice, and interest based on grounds
of that sort is hardly suitable for con
version into cab. It is possible, how
ever, that his recent experiences have
been costly, and that he has more than
ordinary need cf money. Harper's
