A Delightful Occasion.
Sunday and Monday, January 22nd,
and 2.3, were "red letter days" for the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union
of Manning-Mrs. Helen Bullock of
Elmira, N. Y. was with us. Mrs. Bul
lock is a remarkable woman, of fine
mental ability, cultured, and traveled
both in America and Europe where she
has made a close study of social condi
tions, especially along the line of the
use of intoxicants. Her well preserved
physique, and her powers of endurance
are wonderful, she seems to have learn
ed the secret of perpetual youth. It
would be a surprise to many who wit
nessed her vigor and untiring energy
if we sheuld whisper how many years
have helped to whiten her snowy head.
Though for years a public speaker in
this cause. so dear to her mother-heart.
she is a modest, home loving, truly
feminine woman, and enjoys a ebat.
with other capable house keepers. on
the all important subjects of cake and
and piekle making. dainty dresses and
hats, and spring cleaning.
Sunday afternoon the large audito
rium of the Baptist church was lilled
with children and young people, and a
goodly sprinkling of older ones. (It
may not be amiss right here to men
tion in parenthesis, that three years
ago not a church in Manning was open
to Mrs. Bullock and she spoke
to a small audience in the Institute
A number of sweet hymns were sung
and after scripture reading and prayer
by Rev. Jno. 0. Gough, Mrs. Bullock.
talked on the subject of Seed Sowing
and the unchanable law of the Harvest
"What ve sow, that shall ye reap"
whether good or evil: She also gave
by request an impressive object lesson
of the amount expended in the United
States during the year 1903 for drink,
public education, tobacco, chewing
gum, salaries of Protestant Ministers,
and foreign missions. After stating
the amounts in millions of dollars, she
said the mind could not comprehend
millions, so she would demonstate to
the eye the ratio of each to the other.
Unrolling a black ribbon which reach
ed first across the platform and then
own the aisle and into the vestibule,
she told us this -represented the drink
bill, each half inch standing for one
million dollars. Once, during a lec
ture; when the black ribbon was slowly
creeping down the aisle a poor, half
drunk fellow sprang to his feet scream
ing "It means death!" Ah: true, true.
There is death. death, only death in
the cup: A gold colored ribbon, which
id not get off the platform at all rep
resented our boasted public school
fund. A red one which ambitiously
rollowed the black across the platform
and nearly half way down the aisle
showed the amount chewed, smoked
nd dipped by our men and boys-and
women, too, alas. A blue one, five or
six inches long, told the tale of how we
took care of our preachers: the
thewing gum was somewhat longer
than the preachers salaries, and a
modest, retiring little ribbon of white,
barely two inches long measured our
ove for the heathen.
Sunday night the lecture was in the
Iethodist church Rev. A. N. Brunson
nonducted the devotional exercises,
and the Methodist choir furnished
splendid music. We especially appre
iated a beautiful vocal solo by Mr. J.
L. Wells.Both the other churches were
:losed and it was a large and attentive
iudience that hung on the words of the
speaker, as she told of the degradation
f women in the Old- World through
the drink habit, and showed how,
hough baa enough in our own country,
we were blessed in comparison. She
gave several instances of the power ex
rted by the W. C. T. U. for prevent
ng evil, and promoting good legisla
ion, one being the passage of the anti
bar maids bills in New York. It is im
ossible to give a worthy report of the
ecture in a short article.
Monday afternoon a White Ribbon
Reception was tendered the ladies of
.Ianning at the home of Mrs. Jos.
prott, to meet Mrs. Bullock. Mrs.
3ough, Mrs. King, Mrs. S. M. Sprott,
iisses Frances Davis, Julia Sprott and
\ay Lesesne assisted M\rs. Sprott in
-eceiving. The parlors, hall and din
ng-room were tastfully decorated with
~rowing plants and bows and streamers
)f white. Soon after four o'clock the
guests began to arrive, and from tben
:ill the lengthening shadows warned
hem that the day was closing, the
arge rooms were filled with a happy
Dainty refreshments were served,
md just before the breaking up Mrs.
Bullock told the ladies somethin'g of

As a visible result of Mrs. Bullock's
;tay amongst us. the local Union was

hree names. The good done in the

In reference to the immigrants that
have been placed with Mr. Bultman it
may be well to state that he has ex

THE HAIR COi;B.
It Was In femote Times Used In
It would be curious to know what
mystic meaning our forefathers at
tached to the simple act of combing
the hair. We learn from old church
records that the hair of the priest or
bishop was combed several times dur
ing services by one of the inferior cler
gy, but what such a queer proceeding
sIgnified no one knows. The comb is
also mentioned as one of the imple
ments used during high mass, but only
when sung by a bishop. Mass combs
of the precious metals are still reckon
ed as the most valuable possessions of
some European churches, though they
are of no use in modem ceremonies.
Besides the gold and silver combs, the
poorer churches had them of ivory,
Iron, born and even wood. Combs espe
cially known to antiquarians are those
of St. Neot, St. Dunstan and St. Mal
achias. That formerly belonging to St.
Thomas, the martyr of Canterbur7, is
st1ll kept in the church at Thetford;
that of St. Cuthbert, "the woman hat
er," at Durham cathedral.
From sundry references in old leg
ends to the use of the comb in divina
tions and from its appearance in com
binations with pagan emblems on rude
ly sculptured stones In many of the old
countries, it seems probable that It
was a widely known pagan device and
one that was highly venerated.-Lon

THE RAILROAD FIREMAN.
Building a Fire In a Locomotive Is
Not an Easy Job.
The average citizen manages to set
the house in an uproar ev ry time he
has to make a fire in the heater, but
his job is a trifle in comparison with
what a railroad fireman faces when a
new fire has to be built in a Ibcomo
tive. As a starter abont 200 pounds of
wood are necessary to fire up the or
dinary engine. The wood used is old
railroad ties cut into convenient blocks.
When the fire box has been lined with
wood it is drenched with oil, and the
match Is applied.
As soon as the fire gains headway
forced draft is applied, the operation
necessary being performed in the
roundhouse, where all 'apparatus for
quickly producing high temperature Is
at hand. When a good bed of blazing
wood has been produced the fireman
gets busy with his shovel, placing coal
in even layers over the flames. This
part of the work is hard on/the back,
and the aggrieved individual whose
woes are evident to the whole block
when he labors with the heater would
go down and out in the first minute at
It. 'Under the forced draft it is only a
ew minutes before the coal has been
educed to a sheet of embers at white
eat, and by this time there is enough
steam pressure generated to permit of
te locomotive being moved under its
Continuous resort to the shovel on
he part of the fireman does the rest.
t is only about once a month that a
ew fire Is built in a locomotive while
n service. The balance of the time the
fre is kept alight by being banked
when the iron horse is not on the road.
