-was throughout the entire speech warm
ly and enthusiastically cheered for hi ;
tnanly utterances in support of the ad
'ministration of President McKinley ant
Kf his conduct of the Philippine war
-while all enjoyed his keen thrusts at tht
selfish "Little American" idea and the
obstructionists , who reminded him and
his hearers of the copperheads of the
late civil war , in embarrassing the coun
"try while at war and encouraging the
enemies of the flag.
The chaplain paid an eloquent tribute
Ho the soldier whom he styled the pio'
neer of civilization drawing upon his'
Hory to substantiate his claim ; and in explaining -
plaining his change of heart to Republi
canism and prosperity , from pessimism
and calamity , gave many excellent rea
sons why the party of prosperity and
progress and confidence in Americans
-and the American idea should be re
gained in office.
There was just enough of humor and
" the droll of personal experience in the
Philippines to make the speech very en
tertaining , while his exposition of the
winning and dominant American ideas ,
stirred eveiy patriotic heart.
There were five members of the late
'Fighting First Nebraska on the platform

"St. "Patricks Catholic church was well
filled on Wednesday night , the occasion
of Rev. Francis Clement Kelley's lecture
-011 "The Yankee Volunteer. " The rev
erend lecturer was chaplain of the32d

overwhelming array the facts which give
-the volunteer the glory of the world's
greatest military accomplishments , the
"Yankee , or invincible volunteer , capping
'theclimax of heroic performance.
"Throughout the lecture , Rev. Kelley oft
rose to heights of eloquence and poetry ,
= and pleasing bits of reminiscenses dotted
the address felicitously. He held the
'close and appreciative attention of his
hearers throughout the lecture , which
'was as instructive as entertaining.
The altar was simply decorated with
flags and bunting , making an effective
staging for the chaplain , who appeared
in the uniform of a captain.

Moles in the Garden.
There are frequent inquiries "How to
exterminate moles , " so 1 will give my

hem exterminated , but this spring I
bund plenty of them seemingly deter
mined to root up all my monthly roses ,
gladioli , etc , I have already caught
iourteen , and think I will have no more
or some time. I use the Reddick trap ,
vhich I find excellent. When you pro-

LO set it correctly , and be very careful
not to get your fingers under the prongs ,

aver the ground , and by raking and
ramping obliterate all traces of their
work. In a few hours you will probably
liscover a fresh run heaved up. Ap-
