Dear Sir: I wish to thank your lodge
for their patronage to Spring Park Au
gust 1st, and to say that with one excep
tion your picnic was the largest this
season. I would especially mention
your Committee Messrs, Jackson and
McCoy and would say that the success
of the picnic was due in a great measure
to their efforts. The Manner in which
Mr. McCoy made the settlement dem
onstrates a thorough knowledge of rail
way business. Trusting I may be able
to meet your committee of 1890 and
make arrangements with them I remain

Don't a Clam!
This expression has perhaps a chest
nutty flavor, and yet it gives such a pun
gent suggestion in the way of good ad
rice that we venture to use it as a text.
A clam is sluggish,*keeps himself shut
up to all impressions from the world lJ" -i*-"^4
around, buries himself most of the time
in mud or sand, and in general is a stay
at-home from away back. If you want
to get some good out of life, don't act
like a clam, but venture away once in a
while from the place where you were
hern, and see the world. Don't be a
clam by being indifferent what line of
railroad you travel on, but select the one
that is the best in accomodations, fastest
in time, surest in connections"The
Burlington." It goes everywhere
reaches by its own line all important
western cities, aud has excellent? con
nections for all points. For tickets,
rates and any information, call on your
local ticket agent, or addiess W. J. C.

St. Paul Churches and Matters

Progress of Their
Pastors and People.
The congregation at St. James which is
nevei small continues to grow. A large
number of strangers were present Sab
bath morning and the service closed by
all the people gathering around the
alter to pray with a lady who knelt there
seeking the face of Jesus.
The conference year draws near its
close, Rev. Henderson has been here
now two years and finds himself sur
rounded by friends
hearty band-shakes that greet him
wherever he goes, the warm welcome
that he receives, crowds that never fail
to attend the services all testify of the
'act that the people of St. Paul know
how to treat one who labors unselfishly
for the good of all.
That truth will always triumph was
illustrated Sabbath, a family came to St.
Paul more than a month ago, and were
told by a minister that they ould not
be welcome at St. James church for the
people were stuck-up, last Sabbath hov.

in Zion Revs. Scott B. Jones of Helena,
Mont., and Rev. D. P. Brown, of Wash
ington, D. will be present and preach
at morning and evening services, and at
p. M. sacrament will be administered.
Over 50 persons have already paid
their conference dollar money let all
others come prepared to do so Sabbath.
It is said that a few have been attending
services elsewhere in order to avoid this
duty. Don't do that friends, pay it if
you can, but if you can't, don't sneak
away. There will be an old-fashioned
love feast Friday night Aug. 23d all are
