Twelve Hundred Thousand Dollars
From all Sources for Missions
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 '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
"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

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
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

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.

was delayed twenty minutes, and notwith
standing that the time card of No. 4 is the

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

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-

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
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

checks, household goods, and silverware,

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.
