Evangelist C. B. Strouso closed his
meeting horo last Tuesday night and
started to his home in Salem on Wednes?
day morning. Hia proaching was char?
acterized by intonsoearnestnoss and at?
tended with results unprecedented in
tho history of this town. Tno number
of conversions cannot bo precisely as?
certained, but it is inferred from tho
number of tickets handed out to thoso
who made professiona, that there were
at loast three hundred converts. If
asked what constituted the power of
this young man for good, we fancy that
different pooplo would give different an?
swers. Wo prefor to let him give it, as
we think ho did in some of Iiis closing
sermons horo, in which wo understood
him to say that it was a demonstration
of tho power of tho Holy Spirit.
On Bomo points of doctrine, Mr. Strouno
teaches, as wo understand him and as
wo aro told by ono who is familiar with
hia views, that the individual is saved,
not in sin, but front Bin. Ho that is born
of God duth not commit sin, became
Jesus ia able to keep that which is com?
mitted unto him and does keep thoso
who watch and pray from entering into
temptation, and that through faith they
aro sanctified. Ho teaches that tho con?
verting power is from on high and that
this power is also a sanctifying power.
.On Borne minor points of doctrine
thero are slncero ChriHtianB in nearly
overy community who may not agree
with Mr. Strouse, but all will accord
him full sincority, earnestness, conse?
cration and great power for good. He
has been instrumental in tbe accom?
plishment of a great work here and tho
blessings of our peoplo follow him.

Who' Only One Joe Ott To-night at tho
Joo Ott, who comes to tho Academy of
Music to-night in "The Star Gazer."
and familiarly known as "the man who
never smiles," is undoubtedly owing to
tlm (act that oiT tho stage his yet some?
what juvenilo and good-natured coun?
tenance is practically unknown. He
nevor has familiarized tho public with
his personal portraits of any description,
always harboring tho belief that there
is moro merit, us far aa drawing power I
is concerned, in a lithograph or cut of
ono of his characters, or a scene from
tho play, than from a wholo half dozen
oortr<a. Nevertheless, a man's beliof
ic ofttimcs mado changeable. An in?
stance in this particular is so firmly
registered in the mind of tho comedian
that it is very probable ho will nevor i
One afternoon last winter a belated
oxpress train on ono of tho prominent
Western roads landed tho comedian and
his weary company in one of its smaller
yet promising cities on its lino. Aa the
average thespian knows, it is not an un?
common occurrence to bohoid a largo
per cent, of the population at tho depot
upon arrival. It was no exception to
the rule on this particular day. They
were there from the man who handled
the baggage to the most popular mer?
chant. Tnere had existed, it Beems, a
constant desire on the part of everybody
to behold this wonderful man, "who
nevor Bmlled." But lo, they were all
disappointed. Instead they saw as
modest a company of players as ever
appeared in their midst for many a day.
Encouraging nova retched tho ears of
those who silently uptown awaited
their arrival, but It was also counter?
acted by tho report that Joe Ott, tho old
man who never Bmiled, was not with
the troupe, at least bo did not got ctf
That settled It. They wero to bo
treated to another "anido" affair, and
tho outlook for a largo house was very
cloudy indeed as the doors of tho opera
house wero thrown open at tho usual
hour. The comedian at onco grasped
tho situation hurriedly, retired to hi3
dressing room, mado ud as tho old as?
tronomer, and for one hour posed as tho
much-talked-of absent individual in
and about tho lobby of tho theatre.
This at onco started the ball a-rolling.
Tho pasteboards commenced to glide
out of the box window, and ss the cur?
tain went up a corc'ortablo sized au?
dience laughed Incossantly at the funny
capers furnished by Mr. Ott and his
troupe of Star Gazers. It aces without
eaying that tho star's dressing room of
tho theatro that night contained fot
onco a well pleased actor, ovon though
he did havo to submit, to a humiliation.

An Interesting Programme Rendered Sat?
urday Night at Ilolllns luatitnte.
Contrary to her usual custou. for con?
certs at liollina, but in accordance with
her action for tho last three months,
nature p esorved a smiling countenance
for tho evening of Octobe r 5, 1895. The
appointed hour found an expectant au
dienco to greet tho members of tho
musical faculty of tho ecbool, whilo the
programme, presenting such composers
ns Schumann, tirigg, lie'".;,over, llaydn,
Winiawskl, Morkel and Verdi, promised
variety in styles of composition as woll
as merit of music. This concert being
thi! lirst of tho session's serie s of musical
entertainments is always looked for
with interest by tho pupils and furnishes
both inspiration to them in their studies
and models for thoir musical laste.
Between tho organ, piano, violin,
voice and ulocutlon, there was also
sulllciont change to satisfy the opposors
of tho same instrument,whilo tho happy
arrangement of tho numbers added ef?
focts from natural contrasts.
As tho majority of tho audience had
nevor been prosont at any of these de
lightful concerts, it was gratifying to
noto ovidoncoa of the fact that they
wero appreciative of truly good music.
Tho o':d members of tho musical faculty
wore, as usual, enthusiastically ro
coivod, and delighted their hearers with
artistic work. Miss Woaver, tho new
violin teacher, surprised overyono with
hor magnificent techniriuo. Sho is an
artist in every respect, and throws an
energy into her work which cannot fail
to produce good reBults. Miss Jackson,
who succeeds Miss Hume as elccution
teacher, recited ono of Maupassant's
short stories with flno appreciation of
tho situations depicted. Sho is a
talonted and finished elocutionist, and
ono who delightfully entertains an au?
dience with her natural, easy and grace?
ful manner. Hollins may bo congratu?
lated upon tho possession of such a
musical faculty as tho prcaont one.

London, tiet. 7 ? Lady Jeune, in a popu?

siderable attention in view of tuo fact
that tho writer is the wife of tho well

that bloomers have no advantage what?

in her opinion, aro less comfortable and
less graceful to wear, which would soom
to show that the writer has tried them.
Lady Jeune further c'.aimB that woman

found mi old, nid woman ntwork, Mag?

learned from her mother how to carve
those six animals, and her mother had
learned, in like manner, from her grand?
mother. Magdalena lias now taught tho
art to her own granddaughter, and so it
will go on being transmitted for gener?
In another house Miss Edwards found
the wholo family carving skulls and
crossbonos for lixing at tho liases of

ner Thai is religions in its nature as
I well as amusing. In other houses there
j wero families that carved locking horses

houses there wero families of painters.

en girls painting gray horses with Mack
points. In another honso thoy painted
only red horses with white points. It is

"You are just the man wo all aro

out his hand with a merry laugh.
"Come right along. The feast is ready."
Before the man could ask for an ex?

along to ono of the must conspicuous 9
