A BIO MARRIAOE SERVICE.
Amsrlcan Missionary United Thirty
en Couplss at One.
The Rev. A. W. Pitser set a pretty
good pace last week when he married
three couples at once, but he Is still
twenty-eight laps behind the record,
which It held by an American mis
sionary on the Island of Apemana.
This strange wedding, where thirty
one couples were united at once, was
solemnised la 1882. All the principals
were converted heathens, and so well
were tne marriage bonds tied that ten
years later not one of the couples
The great wedding was one of ne
cessity, rather than choice. All the
couples had Signified their Intention
to be married with Christian rites.
Plans were made for separate wed
dings, but a missionary ship was wait
ing for the teacher who was to marry
the converts, and an approaching
storm made It necessary for him to
read the ceremony with great haste.
If the natives had not agreed to en
gage In a wholesale ceremony they
would have been condemned In six
six months more of single blessedness,
so the great party Joined right hands
and assumed the solemn obligations
according to their new faith. Wash
THE TELEPHONE IN AUSTRALIA.
How the Widely Scattered "Squatters"
Talk to Each Other.
An ingenious use of the telephone
has recently modified the Intense mo
notony of farm lire In the "squatter
districts" of Australia.
It would not have paid to lay wires
from farm to farm, for they are often
separated by many miles of open
country; but some Ingenious person
hit upon the Idea of using tho wire
fences used on all the farms to con
vey the current.
The lonely squatter and his family
can now Indulge in a friendly chat
with any one of a hundred families
pcattered around within a radius of
fifty or sixty miles. Games of whist
and chess are played at night over the
telephone by clubs organized for that

The residents of many of the Eng

meaning and origin of which Is not al

of Liverpool should be called "Dicky

ly all the counties have their distinc
tive nicknames. A Cornish man Is
"Cousin Jack" to the natives of the
adjacent counties; the Lancashire
men are "Tim Bobbins"; while the
Lincolnshire folk have long been call
ed "Yellow Bellies.' after the frogs
which once abounded there. York
shtremen, again, are everywhere
"Tykes," a nickname the etymology of
which Is not easy to trace; nor Is It
less difficult to say why the Inhabit
ants of Suffolk should be designated
"Dumplings," those of Kent "Hogs,"
or the Ule of Wight people "Calves."

HONORS A NEGRO DELEGATE.
Episcopal Conference Extends Time
Limit on His Address The Rev.
Thomas G. Harper of England
Was the Only Negro
Speaker and the Honor
The delegates In attendance on the
first annual conference of the Sixth
Mislonary district, In Grace church,
accorded an unusual reception yester
day afternoon to the Rev. Thomas O.
Harper of England, the only Negro
speaker on the program. After Dr.
Harper had spoken for twenty min
utes, the agreed limit, the applause
continued to such length that the con
ference, voted, unanimously, to sus
pend the rules and allow him to speak
as long, as he wished.
His remarks were frequently Inter
rupted by applause. Dr. Harper's sub
ject was "Work Among the Colored
Races." He has been tvlce around
the world, he said, and three times
through the British possessions, and
the more he studied the subject tho
more be had become convinced that
the English speaking people had much
more to learn than some of the other
NEED OF MORE NEGRO PREACH
ERS. "The English speaking race," he
said, "is filled with ideas of national,
commercial and denominational su
premacy. Like all other conquering
and subjugating powers, however, It
had never sought to uplift. In a moral,
religious sense the people whom It
conquered. It should make all these
results of conquests a part of Its great
teaching power. There are sixty-five
negro priests In this country," the
speaker said, "probably fifteen of
them natives of tho West Indies, the
others native negroes of this country.
The tendency has been to give the
negro a little education and let him do
something for his race.
"When you see a man, black or
white," he continued, "who possesses
refinement. Intelligence and education,
you cannot but see In him the image
of the Creator. Although my faco Is
black I am an Englishman and I have
tried for twenty years to be a faithful,
diligent and humble priest."
Dr. Harpo rurged a more judicious
selection of men for the priesthood,
among the negroes, and pleaded for
more courteous treatment of tho
priests and of the laity In that branch
of the church.
Bishop Hare of South Dakota was
chairman for the afternoon.
Give us more Harpers.
We speak of self-made men as
though they were miracles. In refer
ring to them as such as mean that, In
spite of dificultles, they have attained
remarkable excellence. But every
worthy individual Is self-made, by the
grace of God. Even under the most
favorable circumstances a man, If ho
Is to amount to anything, must make
himself. It, therefore, behooves us to
go to work upon ourselves. We ought
to take ourselves more seriously In
the highest possible sense. We have
capacities. God has made us for some
good; He has given us each one talent
at least. The sons of God, we do not
belong to the rubbish pile of the uni
verse. If wo will take ourselves In
hand if we will be ourselves and not
try to bo somebody else If we will
servo our town mission If wo will
faithfully and honestly accept nnd
meet the situation as we find It, we
will surprise ourselves sooner or later
when tho results will liogin to appear.
