Bryner is tho children's inUticnaryof tho ConcreKational churches in Illinois. Indiana and Ohio, and for many years was superintendent of ono of tho largest pri mary Sunday school in Chicago. Mi Koto Kimball of IlulTaln, N. Y , has had chargn of the C.L..S. C.

L.S.C. Tho Doane band of eighteen pieces has given an open air concert eteryeiening except Sun day duringthoaicembly. These cencerts have lecn enjoyablo features of tho program and it is to be hoped will bs repeated next year. Sterhen Jelinclt, the Chicago cornetist, has also been very popular. Jcllnek was for many years a resident of Crate, plajing the comot for amusement. Then he Joincil tho orchcbtra of some opera troupe and drifted to Chicago. There he received instruction ond lcforo long trade a reputation, playing in leading orches tra, and this summer taking solo parts at tho Masonic Templo roof garden. Ho is still looked upon as a Crete boy by tho residents who ono and all call him "Steve." That the Chautauqua this week has been a great success is recognized by every one in at" tondai.ee. The program has been excellent with no failures or disappoiatmenU and this has been due largely to tho woik and interest of Rev. tVillard Scott, tho superintendent: Success has also boon largely the result of re cent management. For.tho past flvo years tho Chautauqua, like everything else, has had a hard time to exist, bat now its prospects are bright for the future. Tho past two years it has mot expenses and at tho same timo has un dergone many improvements. This year es pecially there havo been moro in attendance than for a number of years past. The crowd on th Fourth was larger and also on other special days. The hard times cave weedsd outmoi-t of that competing "mush-room growth" Chau tauqnas which sprang up so profusely all over tho state about five years ago. but tho Crete Chautauqua lias held its own steadily and is rapidly regaining tho jopularity and influenc it possessed in the early nineties. H.O.SHEDD. Crete, July 2. SUMMER SPORTS. Tlio Capital City gun club held a very suc orssfol shoot at Lincoln Park on July fifth. H. j. Welch of this city won thechampionship cup offered by O'Neil and Gardner. In this eTent thero were six tied for tho cup nnd Mr. Welch was obliged to shoot off four time to prove his right to tho prize. Tho shooting be gan at nine o'clock and lasted tUl darkness put an cud to the sport when tho club was com pelled to call off ono largo bird ovent for which there were many entries. The Lincoln gen club also celebrated the day by a school on thoir grounds west of tho via duct. Several merchandise and money prizes were offered and somo good shooting was done. Mr. LaUhaw won tho prize for tho highsst average score his avorajo being ninety-one per cent. The Legislature of Pennsylvania has passed an excellent game law which it would bo well for this state to adopt. Tho law prohibits the sale of game of all kinds killed in tho State and also stops the removal or game taken witli in the state. This, of coarse, puts an end to tho killing of game for hotel and market trade carried on by use of traps and other devices which were used to catch great (inanities of game of all kinds. But tho law also puts a check on tho sportsman, a limit being placed upon the bags which may bo made per diem. One man may now kill in a day ten cocks, ten grouse, fifteen quail and two wild turkeys; the use of ferrets while hunting rabbits is prohib ited and a person cannot kill moro thsn two deer daring the season. This law has not only been passed but is enforced and a guilty party must either pay up or go to jail and remain there a day for every dollar. What a blessing such a law would be for this state. True, there have been game laws enacted but they are very seldom enforced and we have no law to prevent the killing of garoo for sale in this stato and shipment to other states. Two very interesting games were played be tween the University and David city teams on Monday last. David city won tho morning game by a score of 10 to 5 and tho university boys returned the compliment in the afternoon with a score of II to 9. Tuesday afternoon tho two teams again took the field to finish tho last of the scries of the six games which they have been booked to play. This resulted in a victory for the visitors by a score of 4 to 3. in the six games the university boys have won from David cMjtwo, This pratically ends the base balj season at the TJoirccsity. IN MEMORY OFV. MORTON SMITH Whoever has been kind to us, I think we'll surely know beyond The river's brink, though here on earth green miles Between uc lay, beyond life's hills Veil clasp the hands some day. Tis not alone the faces we have seen Shall smile on us in Paradise, I ween, But all who held our hands and bade us rise, Will know us there bereft of earth's disguise. So I believe, when I shall pass the gate, And greet the throng I hope shall me await, That stranger-friend whose written words I hold, Shall bid me welcome to the streets of gold. He wished me well. With kindly thought he penned sweet words of praise, And so he was my friend. And thus I grieve that Death so soon should claim One whom I knew on earth but as a name. ISABEL RICHEY. The Lord Chancellor. The lord chancellor is tho only mem ber of the British cabinet who is not allowed to go outside of Great Britain. This is because he must have the great seal in his personal custody, and to take the great seal outside of Great Britain would almost be an act of high treason. When Cardinal Wolssy was lord chancellor, he took it with him on a visit to France, and thereby hastened his fall, in the opinion of many. The great seal, which is a double silver die, into which molten wax is poured when an impression is required for a state document, was once ueed for culinary purposes. While Lord Chancellor Brougham was staying, in 1 833, at RothiemurchuB, the Scottish residence of the the dowager Duchess of Bedford, the ladies of the party got possession of the great seal and hid it, much to the lord keeper's distress of mind, for he feared it was lost. He was blindfolded by the ladits aad sent to search for it in the drawing-room. At last, to his in tense joy, he dragged it forth from a tea chest, and then, to celebrate its recovery, used it for making pancakes in the kitchen. New York Tribune. The Invention of Envelopes. The invention of envelopes is within the memory of middle-aged persons, and was the result of a Brighton (England) stationer's endeavor to make his Etoro look attractive. He took a fancy for ornamenting his store-windows with high piles of paper, grdauated from the highest to the smallest size in use. To bring his pyramid to a point, he cut cardboard into very minute squares. Ladies took these cards to be small sized note-paper, and voted it "perfectly lovely." So great was the demand that the stationer found it desirable to cut paper the size so much admired. But there was one difficulty. The little notes were bo email that when folded there was no space for the address, so after some thought the idea of the envelope pierced the stationer's brain. He had them cut by a metal plate, and soon, so great was the demand, he commissioned a dozen houses to manufacture them for him. From such small beginnings came this important branch of stationery business. Inventive Age. BURLINGTON ROUTE PLAYING CARDS. Those elegant cards of the very beet quality only 15c per deck.

Consult ticket agent at your station or acdress John Sebastian, G. P. A. Chicago. "I can easier tell twenty what were good to be done than be one of the twenty to fol low my own advice," says Shakespeare. And he knew a thing or two about adver tising. See how he keeps himself before the publia. The really good advertisers arc wonder fully tolerant of cttticism frow any point of compass. They recognize that, in spite of its strange paradoxes, advertising is based o fixed principles. Like every other art its laws are learned only by practice; but no matter who dis covers them or who expounds them, they are just as sure and unchangeable as gravi tation. That is a law that a monkey can demonstrate with a cocoanut as comqletely as Sir Isaac Newton in all his glory. Don't sit on the critic. Disprove his criticism if you can, but be Impersonal about it. Eiscusshis principles or theories upon their merits or demerits, independent oftne man who advaoces them. A wise man can learn from fools; a tool can't learn from anybody. There is always a new way to advertise any product, no matter how many ways t hasbien advertii ed before.
