Poiter, Neb., March, 16th, 1888. During the last fifty years the grand' question which has absorbed the best minds and hearts in the Church of God is How to bear the message of life to the whole human rare as soon as practicable? Home Missions and Foreign Missions are but two gigantic arms of our still more gigantic work a world's evangelization. Because the movement is of God it cannot be stopped. The waves will be swept back, and the tide is fast rising. The very roar of the serf is God's voice of thunder calling his people to leave no human soul to live and die without the v.. v 'J --: t st NebskarCthference. Part of my' duty- is to hare published in the various newspapers in my district, articles on the subject of Christain Mission and give the reading public information on general missionary work, and tseeTi to arousb an interest in'the grand work' of saving our race. The missionary enter-' prise is the most enabling and beneficient work that ever engaged the thought or as pirations of man. 'Consequently it de mands attention and investigation where ever the missionary has gone and his message is received and the gospel of Jesus embraced. Statements have become more generous and just, merchants more honest, masters more human, servants more faithful, husbands more affectionate, wives more tender aud chaste, and chil dren more filial the drunkard, sober; the sting', liberal ; the suspicious, confiding; the stoical, social; the sad, joyous; the desponding, hopeful; the passionate, patient; the thief, honest ;the hard hearted, tender; the blasphemer, a person of clean, lips; the unclean, clean; the miserable happy; and the sinner a saint. The family has been blessed where prayer was never offered, "praises to God never sang, love was a stranger and God forgotten. Now prayer is heard, the praises'to God are sung, peace prevails at the demestic hearth, and love binds the household. "Old things have passed away, and all things have become new." " Nations have also felt the benign influence of the gospel of Jesus, and rejoiced in its transforming power. , : Wherevor-the'Bible-is most-read audits. precepts followed there we find constitu tional government, there are free" schools and means for educating the masses, there are progressive science, improved inechan icism, steam power, telegraphs, tele phones, farming machinery, railroads, there are systematic reliefs for the medi cant, the blind, the deaf and 'dumb, the insane and every charitablft religion. And these can be found nowhere else. "Woman elevated to her legitimate, sphere, and motherhood respected and cherished; society dwells securely, each, "Sitting under his own vine and figtree," and all because the spirit and genius of the gospel of Jesus has effected his poten tial and transforming influence. Hence tol)e associated with Christian missions, is to be associated with a system whose influences always and forever designs the highest culture, and happi ness of the human family The Methodist Episcopal church last year contributed to the cause of mission by collection only. 1,000,000. This year we hope to raise by the same method the sum of $1,200,000. This is fast becoming a missionary ae, "more doors of access are constantly being opened, more missionary organizations formed, more laborers sent forth, more new translations of the Bible made and more copies scattered, more converts to Christianity, and more evangelizing agencies set in motion ." Thank God ! "Tho day is breaking. Wo are living, wo aro dwelling In a grand and nwfal time! In an age on ages telling; To be living is sublime. Hark! tho waking up of. nations Gog and Magog to the fray! Hark! What soandoth! Tis creations's Groaning for the latter day." Yes, the time is hastening. God is rolling on the ages with awful sweep and force. He is crowding a whole century of opportunities into a day. He is bringing the world together, so that the Church may compass, know it, traverse it, a hundred-fold quicker and better than in former generations. Competent engi neering authorities assure us that in five years wo shall be able to go around the world in forty duj-s, and go in co mfort and with all the security of our modern civilization ! And are not such facts the voice of God speaking out of the cloud to His people to go forward? Missionary Revieic. The visit of Livingston to England in 1856, after his memorable walk from Lorado to Quillemane, from the shores of the Atlantic to those of the Indian Ocean, gave a fresh impetus to the cause of Foreign Missions in this country. The great object he aimed to enforce upon the public mind was the elevation of the natives of Africa; to him "the end of the geographical feat was the beginning of the missionary enterprise." The London Missionary Society redoubled their gener ous exertions, resolved to extend their labors by establishing Missions among the Matabele and the Makololo. Robert Moffat. T. H.

Hade at the Very Lowest Bates of Ltterest. of the defendant, and the costs were taxed up to Strobridge. County Attorney Warrington prosecuted and Sinclair ud Griffin appeared for the defense. At the trial young Norris did not' teem to know much about the theft, but on the other hand he stated on the witness stand that Strobridge had offered him twenty-five dollars to say that he saw Bridges take thfc money. With this assertion from the main witness for the prosecution the county attorney promptly dropped the case. There is evidently a verv disreou table "nigger in the woodpile" somewhere and it .is to be .hoped time will locate him where justice will have a chance to do a good job for the country Gothenburg Independent.

There are two hundred private railroad car3 in the United States, representing a value of nearly 5.000,000. They are worth anywhere from $1000 to 60,000 each, the most luxurious probably being that owned by George M. Pullman. A New "York school boy is considered fortunate in having .won $15,009 from a street railway company for the loss of an arm. A good arm on a healthy body will reach farther than that amount of money, large as it appears to be. Two Chinese applied for naturalization and were granted their first papers in the criminal court yesterday, March 12. This was wrong. The naturalization of Chin ese is contrary to the plain language of the statute, and it has also been held to be illegal by a Federal Judge. The Minnesota man who organized the Mankota Gas Company should go east and seek a larger sphere where trusts are ap preciated.

The check which university education has recently received in Russia may be judged from the diminuation in the num ber of students at the St. Petersburg Uni versity. Whereas there were on Jan. 1st 1886, 2.88'), and on the same day in 1887, 2,627 students, on Jan 1st, 1888, there was no more that 2,053 names enrolled on the lists of the colleges. Typhoid fever in 1887 killed, from two to four times more people in the country districts in New York state than in the cities in proportion to the death rate of each. The ratio of cases and a typhoid fever from which a patient gets well often entails consequences from which the vic tim never recoverswould be still greater if there was a record'of them. The Mas sachusetts returns give the same exper ience, and if we had any vital statistics in tbis state worth anything, the' would show that this deadly disease dops its worst and most frequent work on farms. A Frisky Wolf. When a Nebraska engineer has a story to tell it is a big one. One of them is just now asserting that a large gray wolf jum"ped on the track ahead of his engine and kept up a gait of forty-five miles an hour for twenty-two. Then having fur nished the engineer something to lie about his wolfbhip jumped into a thicket. Railway News. He Beats the Devil. "Cyclone Bill," known to his family as William Clawson is a Union Pacific engi neer, and a dandy too. Last Sunday he left Grand Island with engine No. 806 pulling the overland flyer fifty minutes late; this train made all the regular stops, was delayed twenty minutes, and notwith standing that the time card of No. 4 is the fastest on the card, he pulled into Council Bluffs five minutes ahead of time, having made up in running 152 miles, one hour and twenty minutes, with a train of nine coaches. It was the best run ever made on the Union Pacific and the News-Reporter congratulates the able man who made it. News-Reporter. The Troubles of a Gaslin Man. One day last week, Alex Strobridge. of Gaslin, came to town, filled up with whisky and became maudlin drunk, in fact he got very tired and sleepy, and was placed in a back room in O'Brien's saloon to rest and sleep off the effects of the in toxicants. During his stay in the rooms, referred to he claims he was robbed of fifteen dollars in cash. Will Norris a young man who has been around town for several weeks with a rr.ee horse informed Strobridge that he saw A. K. Bridges, the manager of the saloon, take the money from his (Strobridge's) pocket. Strobridge let the matter rest a few days then came to town and had Bridges arrested on the strength of Norris's assertion The case was brought before Justice Gentry of Willow Island, and a hearing had on Monday last, resulting in the acquittal Tha Simon-Danil8 Wedding, Al o'clock last night all was merry2 as" a marriage in the West Chicago Club. A ' companj of a hundred occupied the wed ding ball, which was bright with scores of gaslights aud fragrant with the perfume oi carnation, camelia, calla and rosebuds with which the bridal arbor was entwined. There were young men ia light gloves and glossy black coats smiling above low necked waistcoats and spotless ties ; there were tiny, careless men in knee-breeche and cut-aways who walked hand in hand with fathers or grandfathers, who wore their years as jauntily as their clothes ; . there were matrons and young mothers in lustrous satin and trailing brocades, and, oh, such beautiful young ladies with bright eyes, rosy cheeks, and matchless arms and shoulders, some white as marble, others glowing with the brown and pink of health, and every one round, smooth, dimpled, and pretty excuse enough for being en decollette. The beauty of these young ladies was further enhanced by the flash and glitter of jewel and ornament, the color and perfume of flowers, and the .fluttering motion of feather and fan. At the, hour appointed for the nuptials, the Rev Dr. Stolz, of Zion Congregation, entered the hall with the goblet of wine, typcal of the cup of life, resting on a 6mall salver. Before he reached the bower at the end of the room the nuptial chorus rang along the vaulted roof and out through the corridors and open parlors. Then came the bridal party, including the ushers, Messrs. Edward Pied, Isaac Frank, Lee BTahn, and S. M. Baum; the-bride, Miss Bertha Daniels, the groom, Mr. Louis F. Simon, and parents, brothers and rstets of botb;'--witirthe mastorof cere- monies, Mr. Daniel Simon,-Tri the lead. The'happy; groom -aOdiis majeetic and beautiful bride stood in thecenter of the arch, from which bung a large'floral bell, and about which a pair of white doves seemed to hover. During the ceremony the relatives formed a half circle about the bridal party, and beyond them the guests arranged themselves and remained standing through the address, marriage and benediction. When both had plighted their vow, ex changed rings, and drank from the cup of life they were pronounced man and wife, and in accordance with the Jewish custom retired to the nuptial chamber to receive the greetings and congratulations of the families in private, the orchestra playing Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" as they left the hall. 'After an absence of fifteen minutes the bridal party returned to their former position under the swaying bell, and received as they passed the proces sion of friends. At 7 o'cloctc supper was announced, and after the feast came the dance, and it was morning when the last good night was said. Mr. Simon is estab ished in business in North Platte, Neb., where he will make his home. Quanti ties of beautiful gifts were received by the young people, including several checks, household goods, and silverware, one complete set of sterling coming from Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Franklin, of Dead wood, D. T., and another from the business friends of the groom in North Platte. A Narrow Escape. A "quilting bee" given byMrs.Ruhe at her home near Wallace, was brought to a sudden termination with what might have been a serious accident Wednesday afternoon. Seven of the ladies had eaten dinner ancLxesumed their quilting. The remainder of the guests and the family were taking their turn at the viands when Charley Ruhe came in from a hunting trip. Some one told him to hurry up if he wanted any dinner, and of course he hurried. Just about that time the gun he was setting down exploded, the shot passing through the door and scattering among the women. Owing to its force being broken by the door, no serious in juries were inflicted, although all the ladies in the room were struck by glanc ing shot Wallace Herald. Fon. Rent. A Dwelling House.
