Senator Hawley. of ('unecticut, in the
course of a reccut address to students at
Hamilton College. said: -It is impossibe

without thikinkg of their future and the I
future of their country. Boys are apt to
think that if they had lived in the past they
would have stood by Luther. have stood by
Cromwell, have stood by Christ. I am not
sure they wou.tl. Mut of the men of those
times did not. Bul even now Chrkt is con

I do not htlieve in this discontent with the
present. nor in this agitation for constant C
change. There is one thing you may be
certain of, we are bound irrevocably to the
experiment of a government under which j
we shall have universal suffrage. So it is,
well for you as thinking , - to examine,
not only your religious benef, but also your
political belief. ;reat Britain is driving .
ahead like a ship in a gale. Men forget
that the constitution of England is not so
perfect as oil- own. There is not so safe
and conservative a government in the world
as ours. In forty-ei;ht hours an unruly
parliament could elfect a revolution and t
overthrow the government of Great Br- I

war was but a reconstruction of its founda

There is no more honest work done in the
'United States than is done in the govern

He concluded: "As educated young men,
you must not forget that the Lord and your
e country have demands on you for what
you have of talent. To be a politician in
the best sense is second only to being a
minister of the Lord Jesus Christ. The
most cowardly thing on God's footstool is
to run away from your government.

Order of American Firenen.
On the 15th of September, 1880, an or
ganization bearing the above name was
started by some of the most prominent tire I
lighters of the continent. The object of i
the Order is first to get the firemen of North
America united into one brotherhood, af ter
that it is intended to work together for mu
tual benefit and the benefit of the fire ser- t
vice of the country. There is no intention
to get up strikes in the Fire Departments
but always to make advancement in the
science of fire fighting by mutual counsel
and interchange of inormation. Another
object is to secure for firemen a proper rec
ognition for their services and ultiniatelv
provide a fund for relief in case of injury
or death. When the Order was organizedi
the Firemen> 11eraki, of New York, was
chosen as the official organ of the Order,
not that it should advocate it editorially
but that the Secretary should publish each
'week in its-columns an article, paid for as.
an advertisement, setting forth the objects,
aims and workings of the Order. From :
the publication of these articles the Orderi
has already attained a voluntary member
ship of 1,300. The total dues and fees are
at present 25 cts. which must accompanyt
the application for membership. Address,

Lillian Madison, whom he had betrayed
under promise of marriage, was hanged in
the Richmond jail yard at 1.10 P, M4. last
In the jail yard is an electric fire alarm
box, connected with the general system
throuhout Richmond. His Excellency
Go.Lehad ordered that the fire alarm be
turned in from the jail station at the same
time the drop fell. Promptly at I.10 P.
31. the massive bells rang out the deasth C
knell, and the hearts of the people stood
still for a moment to realize that the be
trayer and murderer of his cousin had paid
the penalty of his awtul crime. The peo
ple uaarrounded the jail ini large, numbers,
but only the few olhcers tnd witnesses r-e
quired by law were admflitted into the jail
yard. Dr. Hatcher, his spiritual adyiser,
was with hinm, and he bore up to the last
with that wonderful self-possession that
has characterized himt throughout.
.He said nothing after mounting the scaf
fold. Dr. Hatcher said that the prisoner

Cluverius smiled while on the scadold,
but was seen to shudder just before the
drop fell. 'He (lied of strangulation.
Thus ends one of the most interesting
chapters in criminal history.
The Grange Encaw pment.
Capt John W. Wofford has commenced
operations at the Grange Encampment at
Spartanburg and is now engaged in cutting
