A genuine and altogether charming touch of social life was that enjoyed in the Congregational church , last evening , upon the occasion of the reception ten dered Rev. and Mrs W. J. Turner , their new pastor and his estimable wife , by the members of the church. The event was marked by a succession of happy and attractive particulars , and was at tended and participated in by one of the most brilliant gatherings ever present at a similar event in our city. A brief word of welcome was signaled by a layman , to which the pastor briefly responded in feeling terms ; and then fol lowed a short programme of vocal and instrumental music which was enjoyed to the full on account of the beaut } ' of selection and the artistic manner in which the various numbers were ren dered. This feature was not lengthy , but felicitous. Dainty and toothsome light refresh ments were served in the church parlor amidst the most attractive and pretty surroundings : lovely cut flowers , dainty china and chaste silver and many other touches of feminine taste and comfort. Ices were served from a cosy nook in the audience room. The church was tastefully decorated for the affair , potted plants , cut flowers , palms , rugs and other items entering in to the ornamentation , comfort and con venience of things. An atmosphere of cordiality pervaded the occasion and rendered it all the more genial and heart } ' , as was the welcome truly accorded the pastor and his family a sentiment not confined , happily , to the members of the church alone , but entertained by many outside the con gregation. Withal the reception was a delightful and gratifying touch of bright and in spiring social life and good fellowship. Progressing Nicely Now. The brick work on the new county court house is now above the second story and that part of the work is rapidly Hearing completion.

Contributions by school children to a fund for the erection of a monument to General Lafayette in Paris have exceeded all expectations. The amount desired is $250,000 , and it is estimated that I cent from every child would be sufficient to complete the fund. So far the con tributions average $5 a school. As there are 400,000 schools , the amount raised may run into millions. The following is the report of the pub lic schools for the month of October , ending on the 28th : Number of boys enrolled. . . : 341 Number of girls enrolled 346 Whole number enrolled 687 Average daily attendance 618 Per cent attendance on enrollment. . . 90 Not absent during the month 423 Not tardy during the month 620 Neither absent nor tardy 390 Per cent on enrollment 57 Entered school during month 38 Withdrawn during month 17 Visits by board I Visits by others 65 Number of non-residents 23 Edgerton and White. The Populist meeting held in the opera house , last Saturday evening , by Messrs Edgerton and White , was not largely at tended. The speech by Mr. Edgerton was goot from the Populisttc stand-point. He is a gentleman of ability and stated his case in good shape , as becometh the lawyer that he is. As to Lawyer White , he avoided the truth with all the sagacity and cunning of his kind and calling , and made a spec tacle of himself. It would be an insult to any intelligent or thoughful man to admit for a minute that his harangue in fluenced a vote for his party. The drum corps made an heroic effort to draw a crowd , but without avail. And Colonel Mitchell of the Comfort was conspicuous by his absence. Evangelist Redding at Indianola. Rev. J. C. Redding , a noted evangelist of great power and marked success , will commence a series of meetings , next Sunday , November 6th , in the Congre gational church in Indianola. His work will be for the good of all the people of the whole community and surrounding country. All Christian people , regard less of sect , are cordially invited to unite in the good"work. . ( Pray for an outpour ing of God's spirit and the manifestation of His "saving power. Let nothing in terfere with the work God would have done in our midst. Tell others about the meetings , bring your neighbors , and let us all work faithfully for the salva tion of this community. * * * Called the Boys Down. "Halloween" was not celebrated with so much abandon , this year. The boys have been carrying matters to excess and this year the police made and carried out plans to put a stop to such practices. Extra policemen were sworn in and the city was carefully patroled until an early hour. The result is that the boys had to confine themselves to noise and innocent amusement , and that is all they ought to do at any lime. The police are to be commended for their work. There is no excuse for the outrageous escapades in \vhich the boys are wont to annually en gage on "Halloween" night. Advertised Letters. The following letters were advertised by the MeCook postoffice on Oct. 3oth : C. E. Abbott , C. C.Parrott , Clyde Lutes. In calling for any of these letters , please say that they are advertised. F.

Hainer of Aurora will peak in the opera house , next Monday evening , commencing at eight o'clock. Come early and get a seat. On the last day of the exposition two jeople were married in the great see- aw.

An infant child was left at the door of Gottlieb Orman's house in West Me Cook , early Sunday morning. There were no initials on the little girl's ap- > arel. John Schlagel has adopted the ittle one into his home and family.

The making of keys is exclusively the luty of the department , and it is unlaw- ul to make , have made or use keys otherwise secured. Any and all such ceys should be destroyed. "Did Man Make God or did God Make Man" that is : back of the universal dea of a Supreme Being is there in realty self-existent self-conscious Creator ty a - , - and Governor of the universe , or does God exist only as an idea in the imagi nations of men ? Dr. J. P. D.John , ex- jresident of DePauw university.discusses this subject as only a profound scholar and deep philosopher can. He has the rare gift of clothing great thoughts in jlain and simple language and never ails to interest and entertain as well as nstruct all who hear him. This lecture s recognized as the most powerful reply ever made in a platform address to the heories of Col. Ingersoll.
