True friendship calls fer certain principles, and exist only in noble, generous, and virtuous souls. "'A good man is the best friend, therefore soonest to be chosen, long est to be kept, unless he ceases to be that for which he was chosen,' says a writer. Cicero said, 'Friendship is founded upon esteem rthey are worthy of friendship in whom there exists Jn Vile WOES A HIGH COMPLIMENT. A high compliment for Rev. B. J. Minort nnd his column in I'he Her ald, "The .Parson's Coiner," is contained in the following reference to this series of articles by on edi torial writer in the Omaha Id Herald, who comments upon them in the following favorable terms: "The Rev. B. J. Minort of the First Baptist church of illnnce is author of 'The Parson's Corner,' which runs regularly in Hie Herald of that city. The writer does not waste his space in lengthy sermons or long expositions on Christianity n the abstract- He brings things home to the readers in real news paper style and has interesting matter in his column which causes it to be widely read in north vest em Nebraska.

When she arrays herself in a customer's gown and begins to dream of love and wealth, some startling things happen. There is plenty of romance and thrills in the action, butthe finale is in the nature of a surprise. "The Great Adventure,"' which seems to consist largely of Lionel Barry-more and laughter, is the Wed nesday feature. , Here's some dope from the pen of an artful press agent: "Farll looked mournfully at his de ceased valet.
