There is an old saying, "The Woild
grows wiser and more wicked every
day" the truth of the latter part of the
saying would seem to be verified, judg
ing from the wickedness of the world
chronicled daily in the newspapers.
JEven Chicago and St. Paul, and Minne
apolis and St. Louis and Louisville seem
to be a little bit troubled that way.
St. Paul boasted of one Colored mem
ber of its police force until last Satur
day and then "Billy" Wilson resigned
and now the Colored people have no
representatiue on the force. Wilson
was appointed by our Democratic
mayor, and had the Democrats won in
November he would not have been
forced to Tesign. The Democrats have
no use for the Colored man, and only
Ihrow them a bone once in awhile to be
able to lay claim to doing something for
him and thus beguile a few ignorant
soreheaded Colored men into voting
their ticket They made good use of
Wilson vihile they had him.
Interest in religious circleR is begining

AVilliam Wilson Won.
Last Saturday the friends of "Billy"
Wilson were surprised to learn that he
had resigned his position on the police
force. He was a very efficient officer,
and with his retirement the Colored
people of the city lost their only rep
resentative among the city's guardians.
His place was promptly filled by the
appointment of an Irishman. During
the week our city was visited by Miss
Nannie Jones, of Duluth. who had a
lover here in the person of Mr. Phil
Reid. Her mission was not pie-eminent
jy successful owing to the prioi claims of
Miss Dinkie Merriweather and Miss
Nannie sought consolationas Artemus
Ward would sayin the 'flowin' bole"
and a copious discharge of briny tears.
Billy Wilson met her under these cir
cumstances and the gallant knight of
the star and mace, could not see so much
beautyfor Miss Nannie is one of the
most beautilul and stately lookii
women in Minnesotain distress and
not go to the rescue. A pretty woman
in tears has knocked out, in one round,
many abetter man than Billyand he
is a good one when it comes to knocking
outand the voluptuous Miss Nannie
sent him to grass much easier than he
did Mcllenry Johnson. He was all
'broke up" and no mistake, and just as
soon as his fair enamorata left the city
he resigned his position and followed
her to Duluth, where he plied his suit
with such success that he was accepted,
and the twain were made one on last
Monday. They will reside in the
"Zenith City'* in the future Like the
Democrats, Reid spends his time ex
plaining how it happened, and Miss
Merriweather is as happy as the Re
publicans over their victory, in being so
easily rid of such a formidable rival

TA GEEAT MAGAZINE
The Century for 1889.
HE question has often been
asked, "to what does Th*
Century owe its great circu
lation?" The Christian Union
once answered this by the
statement that "it has been
fairly won, not by adver
tising schemes, but by the excellence which
characterizes it in every department" In
their announcements for the coming year
the publishers state that it has always been
their desire to make The Century the one in
dispensable periodical of its class, so that
whatever other publication might be desira
ble the family, The Century could not be
neglected by those who wish to keep abreast
of the tunes in all matters pertaining to
culture. And the unprecedented circula
tion of the magazine would seem to be the
response of the public to this intention.
With the November number The Century
begins its thirty-seventh
volume. Two great feat
ures of the magazine
which are to continue
throughout the new vol
ume are already well
known to the public, the
Lincoln history and the
papers on "Siberia and

first of these, written by
