Beyond tho pride, the sorrows and the tears.

To flood our soul- with perfect pence at last.
Our hearts In tru.stiiie faith forget the wrongs.

Till Joy 1 all our lxnmdini; bosoms know
And life Is glad w Iih rhapsodies of bong.
Love, deathle and forglvlnpr, crowns with bay3

As jouth had fondly dreamed In other day.

Owl s endless jiurpo-o guides the feet of men;
Bej ond our pride we meet in lo v again.

A local Christian " organization comes
back at the quotation of a AVichita lady
in the Eagle who complains that
the dishes in which her contributions
to church festivals were carried were
never returned. The young ladies say that
it cannot be expected of the committees
who procure the contributions to see to the
return or the china ware also, and that the
said china is a heavy burden and undesir
able addition to other people's china
closets. The complainant may get some
consolation out of this, but we doubt it.

under the caption of "Aircastle-:"
Happy he whose fancy builds a fair castle
in the air,
Nestled midst the enchanting beauty of
anticipations rare. i
AA'ith its massive walls of wishes towers
of aspirations high,
AA'hose tall, graceful. sun-kised spires seem
to pierce the vaulted sky.
May be he will taste the pleasures that al
lure and charm his soul;
May be he will see the splendors that before
his mind unroll:
Some time, through its echoing archway,
mounted on a gallant steed,
Like a dashing, bold knight errant, fresh
from some chivalric deed,
He may ride with none to challenge his
complete dominion there.
And proclaim himself the ruler of his
"castles in the air."

SOCIETY AT OnT.ATTOMA CITY.
AYhat it is Doing.
The King's Daughters of the First Bap
tist church, of Oklahoma City, gave a
basket social at the residence of T. Y.
Brandour, on Chickasaw street, last Tues
day evening. It was the first entertain
ment the society has given and was a great
success both financially and socially. The
happy hours sped swiftly by in games and
music, until 10 o'clock, when each young
man purchased a basket of Mr. Brandour,
who was in charge, on every basket the
name of a King's Daughter "was written.
In a half hour the remains of the supper
were cleared away and the King's Daugh
ters furnished the company with some ex
cellent music, both vocal and instrumen
tal, which was highly appreciated by all
present. 'Lhe company broke up at a sea
sonable hour, each and all expressing
themselves as having spent a very enjoy
able evening. Among those present the
writer noticed Misses Etta Dale, Ida Dale,
Lotta Noel, Mary Sees, Cora Johnson,
Lyda Rubv, Katie Right, Minnie Couch,
Edna Pugh, Myrtle ""Pyle and Madams
Miller, Brandour. Mitcliel and Downie;
Messrs. Kiles, Mitcliel. Bixler, Dale,
Nicely, Rodgers. Noel. Stinon, Brandour.
Downie, Keller, Tompkins and many others
whose names we did not learn.
This society is of recent organization in
this city, and is a branch society of the
King's Daughters of tbe Fjrst Baptist
church of AVichita, having been organized
by one who for three years iyas a member
of that society, whose home is now in
Oklahoma City. The AVichifa King's
Daughters senther money and a constitu
tion to organize a society for the young
ladies of Oklahoma City, which she very
successfully did and is very proud to now
state through these colutnns, to the King's
Daughters of the AVichita Baptist church,
Is a strong and thriving bociety of thirteen
noble Christian girls who with Christian
love and unity are working together "in

DECLINES THE HONOR.
To the Independent Political club of the north end
of the Fourth Ward:
Gentlemen Under existing circumstan
ces I will have to decline the nomination
that you have so generously tendered me,
and sincerely thaifk you for that honor.
In using the word honor, I mean all that
the word implies, and that I consider it a
greater honor, coming from your club
composed of workingmen, than if it came
from the most wealthy citizens of the
ward. I do not wish to suggest nor dictate
to you any candidate for your support, as
1 know you are possessed of enough dis
cernment to decide for yourselves,
I am, yours truly,

SUNDAY SCHOOL UNION.
Thursday's Session Kesolutions Passed by the
The morning session opened with D. V.
Paxson in the chair and the program was
at once taken up.
The Rev. Elliott spoke of gathering in
the children. God ordnined this work to
the American Sunday School Union,
planted three Sunday Schools a day. Out
come of this Sunday School in seven years
work 2,000 conversions from these schools.
The work is to gather in the children and
if you touch one of their hearts they will
reach others. Present this work in this

stock from one school, seven churches,
five ministers in Missouri, Arkansas and
AVashington territory will vibrate through
eternity. Nothing permanent here, set in
motion intluences that will last throdgh
all eternity. Childrens day is a failure
except where so many denominations are
represented ina community.
God seems to have ordained the work to
our society. AVe are planting three Sun
day schools per day and by God's blessing
we wish to do more. The outcome one
Sunday in seven jears was 2,000 conver
sions, seven churches, five ministets scat
tered over three states and territories. The
work is to gather in the children and if
you touch one of their hearts they will go
out and bring in others. Present the work
as if you took stock in it, for itisonoof
the grandest works in the world.
Dr. Paxor suggested that each mission
ary have a contribution book and solicit
froe will offerings, Don't taken collection
under excitement. He has not taken a
church collection in two years. He only
wanted to speak to a congregation five
minutes to reach them.
Missionary Havvey, of New Mexico,
spoke in an earnest manner upon prelimin
ary work in the district.
The afternoon session was opened by an
interesting devotional meeting and Bible
j Ml, j3,ard of this city IlftPr
which Missionary luinsou, from north
west Kansas, introduced tho subject of
house and home visitation. He would
visit and give them tlie proper Bible food
aud clotlung, followed by personal help
and contact. He made an earnest appeal
for more work in this way. Dr. Faxon
thought it was "letter to put ten men to
work than to do the work of
ten men."jjMissJonary Cas-el urged the
importancerof developing Bible rending
among the people
Natural man has no appetite for spiritual
food, and his appetite is increased by that
which he feeds upon. He becomes like
that which he feeds upon. The love of
God must grow in a man. Study the Bible
for medicine, food and exercise. AVe must
not overfeed, but lead thqm to study the
Bible for themselves. Carry the Bible
work to the home and vfcit from house to
house using the Bible. Excite their curi
osity in the Bible and distribute copies of

LAST NIGHT'S. VUtH.
1 jist night at Q-JSD an alarm came in from
the Stem block which might have proven
to Ihj a very dangerous lire. It originated
on the third floor between tho ceiling), but
tlie prompt attention of the department
got it under control before tho wind bad a
chance to spread it. Just how It caught fe
a mystery as it seemed impossible to start
a lire lwtween the ceiling, as there wem
no stoves or grates burning in thu build
ing. The damage, to tho building i vary
slight, and tho room in which tho lire oo
curred was unoccupied.
