Swickard was able to preach last Sunday morning, but the effort was about all he could stand. He had been quite sick up to Saturday morning, bnt determining to hold his regular Sunday service. He has been preaching a series of sermons on the Lord's Prayer, taking his texts frotp various parts of that matchless com position. His sermon last Sunday was on "Deliver us from Evil," and on the proceeding Sabbath he took for his text "Lead ns not into temptation." His sermons all through were highly interesting and gave all who heard him abetter understanding of the wonder ful power and strength of that simple prayer. Dr. Swickard has given his congregation instructive evidence of his profound biblical scholarship and deep study of the unexplained language of God's word, but there can be no doubt that those who heard his brilliant elucidation of the meaning of "Lead us not into temptation," understands that part of the Lord's Prayer better than they ever did before. We can all understand why mortal should as ask the Lord to "Deliver ns from evil," but many a christian has stumbled over "Lead us not into temptation," and just why we should ask the Lord not to lead us into temptation, when we have a christian's faith that the Lord would not do so. Dr. Swickard is one of the ablest preachers in the state. See o#r gun ad elsewhere in this paper. J. F. SEUBERT. Tom Collins'and 'Art Collins and Dick MoCarthy were putting the har ness on a team in the livery barn Wed nesday morning when that flash and clap of thunder came together.

Warren Dick was in town last Sat urday accompanied by T. H. Uteneey of Harvard, Illinois, a tine young gentleman, who recently came up to see. his uncle John of Worthing, one of Lynn township pioneers. The young gentleman was on the road for some time for Fairbanks, Morse A Co., bnt a siege of typhoid laid him out and he concluded to run up and see good old uncle John, and uncle John was mighty glad to see him. T. H. Clancey has been making his headquarters at Kansas City, but has given up business for a time. Warren Dick got hold ot him and soon convinced him that work in the harvest field would drive ont the last evidence of the evil effects of typhoid quicker than anything all the doctors in the country could give him, and this pro position was worth a test,- and the test proved that Warran knew what he was talking about. No one who looks at young Mr. Clancey to-day would be lieve he had a severe contest with typhoid within a year. He looks strong, rugged, with a fine complexion, laugh ing eyes and a sweet voice, and as Jim Madden says, almost as handsome as his uncle John was when he used to "swing partners" in the good old pioneer days when "Grange Hall" was in its glory, and Jim never got within a hundred miles of the "Blarney Stone."

Much that he does is mere child's play to him, and is done with an amu sing twinkle in his eye but when he comes to the more important experi ment the strong mental effort and absorption it requires, is seen from the tenseness of his expression and the greater solemnity of his air. He does not regard his work lightly for it has cost him the beet years of his life, the hardest study and most profound thought. Admission 15, 25 and 35c.
