Settled Over a Prosperous Church.
The Rev. Eugenia St. John, a regular
ly ordained minister of the Methodist
Protestant church, has been employed
as pastor of the Gordon Place church.
Kansas City. Mrs. St. John is regarded
as one of the ablest ministers in that de
nomination. She has had charge of a
church at Emporia for several months
and recently has made frequent visits to
Kansas City to preach at Gordon Place
church. Her sermons have proved so
satisfactory that it has been decided to
retain her as tha regular pastor.
A Woman's Unique Snit Against a Town.
At Deerfield, Mass., Mrs. Mary E.
Fisher of South Deerfield, in behalf of
the women voters of Deerfield, has
brought suit against Henry Wait, Alden,
Briggs and E. C. Coles, members of the
board of registers of voters, for $500.
Through the registers' interpretation of
the law the women were not allowed to
register last fall and thus lost the right
to vote for school committee. The suit
is believed to be the first of its kind.
The town will defend the registers.—

Some most excruciating pain cow»s from de
rangement of the kidneys. This is tho testi
mony of Senator Henry C. Nelson of New York
as to the value of Aixcecit's Porous Piasters
in such cares:
"On the 27th of Febrotry, 1883,1 was taken
wllh a violent pain In. the region of the kid
neys. I suffered such agony that I could hardly
stand up. As soon as po-s-.ble I applied two
AiiLcocK's Porous Pi.antkrs, one over each
Sidney, and laid down. In an hour, to my
surprise and delight, the pain had vanished
and I was well. 1 wore tbe plasters for a day
or two as a precaution, and then removed
them. I have been using Allcock's Porous
Plastsrs in my family for the last ten years,
and have always found them tbe qulcsest and
best remedy for colds, strains and rheumatic
affections. From my experience I believe they
are tbe best plasters in the world."
Bkakdrsth's Pills tone up the system.

A LETTER FROM SOLLY SMITH.
The Youngster Tells How He
Lives and Trains.
He Gives Reasons for Thinking He
Will Best Dixon Tonight.
Ha Ia In Perfect Physical Condition.
His Opinion of the Dixoo-l'llra
mer Go—He Hevlews
Solly Smith, tbe Loe Angelea feather
weisht, will tonight fight George Dixon,
the negro champion in that class. There
are comparatively few men who think
Smith will win, yet there ia no reason fo
suppose the contrary, except for the
fact of Dixon'e long-continued' success.
Aa a matter of fact, there is so little to
choose between the two, that barring
tbe precedent of Dixon's many victories,
the betting should be even instead of
100 to 60 as it is. A prize fight, like a
horse race, is essier to guess alter it ie
over, and tonight whichever way the
contest goes there will be a lotof "I told
yon so" fellows, but the writer is
strongly of the opinion that Solly will
win and that the tight will not be a long
The following is a letter from the Los
Angeles lad to tbe 8. F. Chronicle which
will be found of interest:
Asbury Park N. J., Sept. 15.—When
1 step into the ring of the Coney Island
Athletic club on the night of September
25th to dispute with George Dixon his
right to tbe title of champion feather
weight of tbe world I shall be as near
the state of physical perfection as faith
ful work and the unceasing care of skill
ful trainers can make me. Ciosar was
not more confident of tbe subjugation of
Gaul than I am tbat I shall win from
the hitherto-invincible colored lad the
crown he has worn and has so well
defended the past six years. My fleeh
was never harder, my body never more
supple, my head never clearer, and my
confidence is aa firm as my muscles.
My trainers, Seward Smith (my
brother), and Jack Oliver, will tell you
that they are not very soft either.
I have seen Dixon twice in the roped
arena. The first time was on the night
of his easy victory over Pierce before the
Coney Island Athletic club. The second
was his recent meeting with Billy
Plimmer in Madison Square garden,
Mew York, the result of which so ear
prised the entire world of pugilism. I
watched his tactics —his feints, Mows,
guard and every movement. He had
sore need of all his skill, and the occa
sion brought out all his science.
I saw that "terrible double left," and
also saw, as did Plimmer and 15,000
spectators, that it failed of execution.
lam not afraid of that left. It was
useless against Plimmer, and what the
Briton did I can do, and more. Before
tbat bout, which ended so disastrously
for the colored champion,! was confi
dent that I could whip him.
Mow tbat I have seen and studied my
man in action I know it. He is nimble,
clever with his hands and feet and a
good general. He possesses nothing I
haven't got. And yet if Dixon and
Plimmer ever meet in a finish fight the
colored lad will beet the English
man. Anyhow that is my opinion.
I do not look forward to an eaßy vic
tory, for I must concede that my adver
sary is more than clever, and tiie battle
will probably be iqterepting. Speaking
of bard contests, I have been in the ring
four years. In the past JS months i
have fought 10 battles. The only man
that ever gave, me any sort of a tight was
Van Heeet, whom, as you know, I met
before the California club in San Fran
cisco,. December 29th last. Van was a
good man, and he was game. It took 14
rounds to settle matters satisfactorily ts>
both—or at least to me—and it was one
of the busiest hours of my life.
My first match of any consequence was
with Dan Maboney about a year and a
half ago. Dan was champion bantam of
the coast and he had an army of support
ers, who freely prophesied that I would
be in peaceful slumber before the tenth
round. Well, you all know how it was.
Dan took a nap himself in tbefifteenth. I
don't like to refer to ray chase for 56
rounds after Sprinter Siddons. It makes
my legs ache even now. Then came Van
lleest, and I'll shake his hand with
pleasure any time, because be ia the
nerviest, gamest fellow I have ever met,
for money and honors.
Some of tbe eastern papers were very
busy after my meeting last July in Chi
cago with Johnny Griffin criticising the
way in which I pulled down tbe puree
and stakes, il was defined as a fluke, a
chance blow, over-confidence on the part
of Griffin, who "all hut had me out,"
and more rot of that sort. I nevertalked
much about the affair, because I don't
go in for newspaper notoriety, but now I
want to say thia:
Of all my victories in the ring ''during
the past four years—and I have an un
broken record—Griffin was the easiest
game I ever ran against. The east
thought tbe only man ou earth who
would have a chance with him was
Dixon. I figured on and trained for a
meeting with a combination of skill,
nerve and strength. He was a "snap."
I knew it in the first round, and ho
learned it when he woke up after the
fourth. He wanted a return match. So
say they all. There never waa a man
on earth who was fairly beaten tbat
didn't bowl for "another chance."
I am snugly quartered here at Loch
Arbour, just outside of Aabury park,
in one of the most delightful vales in
picturesque New Jersey. With, me
are Zick Abrahams, my backer
and manager, and the man who
brought me ont; Seward Smith, my
brother and trainer, and Jack Oliver, his
assistant. We occupy the wbole of
Davis's cottage, a handsome and roomy
hoase, jnst back of which is a two-story
barn, where 1 have my training rooms.
The place is only a tew hundred yards
from tbat where Corbett trained for his
fight with Sullivan, and about one mile
and a half from "The Farm," where the
big Californian is preparing for his con
troversy with Charlie MUehell next
My present methods of training do
not differ materially from those I have
employed formerly. The entire lower
floor of my training quarters I uee aa an
exercise room. The second floor ie de
voted to a shower bath and ia also a
place for reeting after the mb down. I
rise in the morning at 6 o'clock and take
a short walk along the beach. At 7
o'clock I eat a breakfast of chops, soft
boiled eggs and calfs-foot jelly. I rest
till 8:30, when I take a longVun on the
road from 15 to 18« miles. I
return to tbe quarters St 11:30
and am then taken in hand
by my trainer. Dinner ia served
at 12:30 o'clock, and consists of roast
beef, a glass of beef tea, calfs-foot jelly,
plenty of vegetables and a bottle oi ale.
I rest till 3 o'clock, when I don my fry in
naaium suit and for an hour and three
quarters punch the bag, skip the rope,
use the bells and box and wrestle with
my trainers. After a shower hath and a
rub down tho work of the Jay is finished.
I rest till 6 o'clock when v tupper of
mutton chops, sou-boiled e?gs, etc., is
served. After this meal c v a spin of
three miles on the beach. At 8:30 sharp
I retire. There ia no deviation tioin this
1 shall fight at 118 pounds, and have
only four pounds to take oU' in the two
weeka that intervene. I uever felt bet
ter in my life, and my i_.tua»er and
trainer both'say thai I urn in better
condition even than whtn I fought Van
Heeet. I expect to return to California
late this autumn and snake hands with
all the good lnds whom 1 haven't for
gotten for a minute in the stranger
ecenea of the eastern world. Ah I aaid
bsfore, I have been engaged in 10 bat
tles during the past year and a half, and
I'think I deserve a rest. W'bether I
win or lose this greatest contest of my
life I will fight no ape for at least a
year. But tell the boys I dont intend
to lose. Solly Smith.
Euiblcuia of the Apostles.
Tho mediiovul artists, having no idea
of 'the personal appearance of tho Sa
viours followers, adopted a set of signs,
or emblems, for each, v.i.icb soon be
camo familiar to alj. The emblem of
Peter was either a larg - key or two keys
crossed, which is rat-lily explained by
Wferring to tho word3l I Christ (Matthew
xvi, 10), "And I will give unto thee tho
koys of the kingdom of heaven." Tho
emblem of Paul was a sword and a book
—tho latter to ri iiu<] the beholder that
ho was n teachrv oi men; the forinor to
Indicate that he waa beheaded with a
sword. St. Andrew was usually figured
standing by a croas shaped liko a letter
X, that being the form of. the cross upon
which legend says ho was crucified. Tho
emblem of St. James tho Great waa
either a sward—referring to the fact that
he was also beheaded—or a pilgrim's
staff, ho being a great traveler.
St. John's'emblem was a caldron, re
ferring to his experience in the boiling
oil. St. Philip's emblem is un enigma.
It was a spear and a cross, yet it is
known that Tio was hanged. St. Bar
tholomew, who was "flayed alive," is
represented with a knifo and his skin
hanging over his a rib. Matthow's em
blem is a square, supposed to BfiVS some
reference tuChri: t'u calling. St. Thomas,
having been "pierced with a dart," is
pictured carrying n spear. The emblem
of James the Less was a club, ho hav
ing been "beaten tp death with a fag
got;" St. MatUiins an ax, ho having
been beheaded. Simon's emblem was a
saw. Tiie legend aayo "he was sr.wn
asunder."—St. Louis Republic.
A Game Hunter's Last Effort.
M. do Clvrvillo had a dog which had
become wholly deaf and almost blind
with old age, us well as most helplessly
lame with rheuuisaism. Tho dog slop:
almost all tho time, but ho retained a
keen passion for the chase, and it was
impossible for his master to got away
from the house with a gun on his shoul
der without tho old dog unless the ani
mal war, locked up.
On one occasion when M. do ClitTVillo
thought ho had eluded the old dog he
found when in tho field that the faithful
creature was? limping after him, whining
with tho pain of moving his old limbs,
but keenly on the alert, as woll as hia
eyesight would permit, for game.
Presently tho umster saw tho dog
•pointing at v partridge. DeCherviile
could not resist tho temptation to kill
ono more bird for tho voteran. He fired,
the partridge dropped, and the dog, with
the one-quarter of an eye which remained
to him, hunted it out and brought it to
Bringing tho by-d at a limping, lum
bering gallop, the dog did what he had
never done before in the field; hegot upon
his bind legs, planted hisforepawson De
Cherville'a shonlders and dropped the
bird 011 his breast. Then the dog fell to
the ground, rolled over two or three
times and was dead. His last supreme
effort in his matter's behalf had killed
' Gem rotiillers of fJeylon.
I was titti'ig ono ufternoon on the
beautifr.l wide veranda of the Qalle Face
hotel, Colombo, in Ceylon.
A light hand touched my shoulder, and
a barefooted Cingalese stood beforo me.
"World you like to buy some stonesr"
ho asked in his pleasant voice.
These peddlers of gems aro very nu
merous in Ceylon and threaten to become
a nuisan be to the traveler. They aro not
allowed to cuter the hotels, and I once
saw one of them actually beaten out of
tho Oriental in Columbo. Houco it waa
that bx fore addressing mo my Cingalese
friend glanced furtively up and down
t'nt; Ring veranda to sco that he was un
observed by the minions of tho hotel.
Ho took from beneath his blonde a
bnnclle of white cloth, which ho opened,
displaying about a pint of rubies, car
buncles, moonstones and cat's eyes". As
I had nothing to do, I looked through
them, after explaining to the sablo mer
chant that I had no intention of buying.
Tiio collection must have been worth
many thousands of dollars, jndging by
individual specimens, but apart from his
merchandise the barefooted vender, cos
tume and all. might have bean assessed
at about 0 shillings,—Donaboe's Maga
All fl KIM., lit.
Tho artist rested against a tree, and
the blue-gray smoke gently arose from
his pipe and wrapped in its clinging ca
ress the leaves that took its fancy.
He was flunking of his last visit here
"We camo hole, and I begged that i
might put her in my picture. She con
