H I.eaguo at tlio Pythian Tomplo ro-
1 ccntly under tlio title of "A Tho-
H .illogical Hoax una What Cnm0 of
H H," J, A. MacKnlght a Mormon by
H birth and a relative of Hrlgham
H ..Young, set forth Mormonlsm is be-
Jng founded Upon an Absolute liox
1 tlio alleged revelation to Joseph
H Smith mid oh entirely crroncotm In
H Its theological system, but as "having
H been very bcnellclnl to Its disciples
H In Its secular phases.
H Hrlgham Young was described ns
H a man of great practical genius,
b whoso work, whllo autocratic, was of
B great practical and economic benefit
H to his
H Even tlio alleged Mormon political
H o, Indiicncc, which tlio sponkor stated
H Is often hold up In this part of tlio

fl Wield Power For Decency
LLLfl f "Tho Mormons wield their polltl-
cat power with a good deal of do-
cency, a good deal of solf respect and
H a good deal of benefit to tho commun-
H lty," declared tho speaker. "It Is
H somewhat laughablo to hoar woll
H meaning women talking In public
about tho union of church and fctato
H In Utah and urging tho National Ex-
W ecutlvo to ubo his lnlluenco to chock
V tbo political schemo of tho Mormons.
1 "Peoplo who listen to that kind of
' twaddlo aro simply having sand
Hf thrown Into their eyes, so that thoy
H may not discern tho real peril which
a different theocratic clemont pro-
H sents to American institutions.
"Tho Mormons conduct somo
i schools for tbo teaching of their po-
H cullar religious doctrines, but thoy
P have novcr mado any attack on tho
H public schools, and are not In favor
of any changes which would etnas-
H cuato tho Constitution of tho Unl-
H, ted States."
f( Should Abandon Supera'.ltutlon
i Tho speaker declared that "whllo
H tbo particular hoax to which I direct
H attention has played Us part In tho
H bodevllllng of a small fraction or
H tho American population, tho thco-
H logical hoax In general has played
H a villainous part In tho deception
nnd debasement of all mankind," and
H he took tho position that It Is tlmo
H not only thoso of tho Mormons, but
H all theological superstitions should bo
H nbandoned for tho truths of science.
H I Tbo speaker especially condemned
H. tho Indoctrination of tho minds of
H v children with theological fictions and
H John 1'hilllps Meakln, who had
H j onco been a Mormon, -also dof ended
H j them ns a pcoplo of many excellent
H qualities, though also rejecting their
H i theology.
H W. II. Coleman held that oven on
H I. Kh secular elilo Mormonlsm was on
II n low piano and charged that it was
H J a Bcliemo whereby sclllsh lcadors ex-
H plolt a lot of well meaning pcoplo
1 , economically.
These remarks brought David R.
H Roberts, a Mormon, of Logan, Utah,
B to his feet, who defended bis pcoplo
with rcfcrcnco to tho criticisms mado
David Kcclcs arraigned Mormonlsm
fl as nn example of theological- super-
H stltlon nnd held that all who bellovo
in divine revelation nnd tho mlrncu-
1 Ioiih aro committed to tbo fundnmnn-
B tnl tenets nnd errors of Mormonlsm.
H ilo Joined Mr. MacKnlght In urging
H tho entire abandonment of theoiogi-
H al superstition for the truths of na-
H turo nnd science.

BARTERING OF BETTY
By ANITA CAVENAUGH.
"Just why," queried Hilly as meek
ly as his 176 pounds would permit,
"aro you jilting mo? Here Is your
ring. I bought It today." Ho toss
ed tho Jowelcd circle on tho table be
"Oh, Hilly, what a beauty? May 1
try It on for a mlnuto?"
"For ns long ns you like. No
other woman will ever wear a ring of
mine." There was bitterness In his
"I wish you could put It on,
Hilly, juBt as If nothing had hap
pened." Ho saw tho tears glittering on her
lashes and suddenly caught her hands
in his own.
"What Is It, Hotty dear? What's
gone wrong since last night? Ho hon
est with me, girl I"
Dotty glanced about her apprehen
sively. "Somebody will hear."
"I took great care to bring you
ninugiu 10 my uen.
"For heaven's sako, Hotty, why this
BUBpenBo? Let the ax fall. Have you
discovered that you don't care for mo.i
"No, Hilly. I lovo you better than
anything olso In this world."
"That settles It," said Billy, sllppin
tho circle of big diamonds on her
finger. "Neither man nor dovll cmi
tako you away from mo now."
Hetty looked down nt the auburn
head bent over her hand. "Don't, Bil
ly!" sho cried sharply. "Don't mako
love to mo. If you do, I never can give
you up, nnd father says"
"So your father objects."
"Only on principle, Billy."
She took tho ring from his finger
and handed It to him solemnly.
"He says that I am keeping you
from getting a good business start,
that you have no head for figures."
"In other words, ho thinks I'm no
man, Just a plain boob."
"No, ho believes that you are clev
r, but he says you never take any
thing seriously, that you aro only in
love with me temporarily. You won't
want me after you get mo," sighed
Billy lookked at her, and his pulse
throbbod as ho caught her and held
hor close to him. "I am going to
show father a thing or two," ho
said. Hearing footsteps, ho released
A man supported himself, swaying
by the curtains in the doorway.
"I beg pardon," ho said thickly.
"Didn't mean to disturb you and tho
lady. I I was just looking about,
you know "
As he spoke, Billy covered him with
the little pistol he had taken from
tho tr.blo drawer.
"Up with your hands! qftlck about

When tho servants had answered
tho summons, nnd tho thief lay bound
on the floor, Billy proceeded to search
"Thoro's father's watch," screamed
Dotty. "Tho ono grandfather gave
him. And mother's horseshoe of dia
monds! What a bold thief!"
The police mado a quiet entrnnce
to tako their prisoner. Billy and Bet
ty wont downstairs to return the
spoils. Everybody was busy playing
bridge. Not ono of them bad discover
ptl any loss.
"What tlmo havo you, daddy dear?"
asked Hetty stopping by her father's
There wub consternation on his faco
when ho folt In un empty pocket.
"Why, 11," he floundered miser
ably, not caring to announce a loss in
his friends' house.
Hilly held up his valuable old watch.
"How many of you havo lost Jowelry
tonight?" He opened a box full of
pins, trinkets and n string of pearls
worth a king's ransom.
"My pearls!" shrieked Mrs Stanley
"My horseshoe pin! ' cried Hetty's
"My emerald bracelet," moaned Kit
ty Melcars. "It's the one you gave me,
"Quiet." ordered Hilly "I have
everything. Thoro's the thief!"
He pointed to tlio stairway where
two policemen could he seen lending
away their prisoner.
"How did this happen young man?''
Hetty's father was perturbed He waw
annoyed that any man could take his
watch without his knowledge Ho had
prldod himself all his lifo on his abil
ity to road character 'The fellow
did not look ltko a thief "
"People, llko things, aro not always
what thoy appear." suggested Hilly
meaningly. "I may not look like a
buslnoss man myself but I am going to
make you look to your laurels In that
Snydor-Mynutt suit tomorrow And
I suppose I might as well tell you slnco
you'll havo to know It anyway. I am
going to marry Betty."
"Upon my soul, you astonish mo,
"My denr girl." whispered Hetty's
father to hor, "don't tell Hilly what 1
said about him. 1 can't afford to have
him for an enemy. Tell him that 1
will be proud to welcome him Into my
family. Tell him anything you llko.
So he's tho young scoundrel who Is
shout to brat me out of that lift) thou
sand In tho Snydcr-Mynatt caso. I
won't put up with It. Ho ought to
leave business for us older lawyers
ud have a good tlmo. He's too )uuug
to take life serious); yt."
Woman Given Hlu.li Position.
In Switzerland a woman has been
appointed to the chief Inspectorship
of factories, a coveted position hither
to held only by men.' This appoint
ment Is tho outcome of a special com
mission which met to Inquire Into fc
tory conditions of the various can
tons. Owing to the great increase of
women In industrial life, tho desirabil
ity of a woman as chief Inspector was
unanimously agreed upon by tho com
mission. , (j,.
"Btsr Talk" Efficacious.
"Dear talk" was always considered
'good mcdlclno" by the Indians. If
a bear blocked their path, they ad
dressed him politely, reminding him
of their common brotherhood, prais
ing his nobility and requesting him
kindly to allow them an unmolested
passage. This, it Is said, ho frequent
ly did, for, being by naturo Inoffensive,
tho soft accents did not disturb him,
and so bo would go on his way.
Wasn't 8he a Woman?
TJat man ober dar say dat womefl

And ain't I n 'oman? I could work as
much and eat as much wblnst I could
git It as a man, and bear de lash aa
well. And ain't I a 'oman?" Sojourn
Among the clever stories retailed at
tho Beefsteak or the Garrlck Is a nice
one of the florid lawyer, who was
counsel In an action for libel brought
by a provision merchant against a lo
cal newspaper. He said In his ad
dress to the Jury: "My client, gen
tlemen, Is a cheesemonger, and the
reputation of a cheesemonger In the
city of London Is like the bloom of a
peach. Touch It, and It Is gone forever."
Sttlt Admired the Ring.
A few days ago Maud, who was a
little Jealous of Ethel, said: "When
you broke your engagement with
Jack, of course you returned the dia
mond ring he gnve you?" Ethel an
swered promptly. "No, and I don't
Intend to, elthor. I don't care for
Jack any more, but my feelings have
not changed toward the ring." Na
