Among the wonders of the World's Columbian Fair the grandest was the exhibit of American products. The Ex hibition was, in this respect, an object lesson of the grandeur and glory of the Republic. Among the exhibits from the United States no article of its class stood so high as Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder. The Chief Chemist of the Agricultural Department at Washington, backed by an intelligent jury at the Exposition, found it strongest in leavening power, peerless in its purity and beyond comparison in uniform excellence.

Last winter the decrease be3'ua to show, when th number of circles in town iad fallen from the live of the winter before tooniv three, with a decrease in membership of from about 223 to 123. The only remaining circle is the one that ineets ia the parlors of the Metho dist 'church, and is called tue Bishop 2iin.de circle. Mrs. G. A. Huron is the president. The decrease is attributed ta the sj. riaz ing up of the numerous other societies that have bxen established ty women. The new societies meet in the stfternoou, which is more convenient for the women and the fact that the Chautauqua meets in the evening- is considered a detriment to it. It was thought that when Bishop Vin cent came to t .vvn ti ere would be a re vival in Chautauqua circles, but the hope seems to have died.

Frod Carleton of Texas became a member of tbo order in 1S71. He was ad mitted to the grand lodge of Texas in li74 and in 1S7S to the grand encamp ment. He was elected represent ative to the sover eign grand lodge in 18S0 to fill a vacancy and the following year was again elected for one year. In laS2 he was re turned for the full term of two rears FRED CAELETOS. and has succeeded himself in the sovereign grand lodge con tinuously since that date. At the session of 18U0 lie was nominated, among others, for the oice of deputy grand sire without success. In lb92 be was again nominated, but withdrew after the second ballot. At the recent session of the sovereign grand lodire held at Chattanooga he was elected deputy grand sire.

A Rebekah lodge shall consist of net less than five members and cannot volun tarily surrender its charter nor dissolve as long as five members in good standing de sire to retain such charter and work un der it. Los Angeles has four Rebekah ledges. By the law of the sovereign graud lodg-r Rebekah lodges must elect both recording and financial secretaries. One person can not lioid both offices at the same time. Six Rebekah lodges, aggregating 300 members, have been instituted in Quebec the past year. Ontario gained GG1 Rebekahs the past year.

The following extracts from The Official Digest are instructive: '"The officers of a lodge have nothing whatever to do in the matter of suspending a member for non payment of assessments. If the member does not pay his assessment within the B0 days prescribed, ho is suspended by opera tion of law. Neither the lode nor any of ficer thereof has any voice or authority in the matter of suspending a member for nonpayment of assessments or dues. A nu mber failing to pay assessments within the tpticilied time is suspended by opera tion of law. and no action is necessary by the dictator or the lodge to legalize bis suspension. A lodge bn the right to pay the assessment .of a member out of its yen era! fund, and such payment, whether i.u tin.iiireu or not, operates to hold the mem ber in food standing until the amount paid is consumed.'"

Every month records uti increase in mem bership, anil this assures the members that the assessments will be kept down. The present membership is double that of any similar cryanization. The A. O. L.

I am not a superstitious man, far from it, but despite all my efforts to the con trary I could not help thinking, directly I had taften a survey of my chamber, that I should never quit it without going through a strancre adventure. There was some thing in its immense size, heaviness and gloom that seemed to annihilate at one blow all my resolute skepticism as regards supernatural visitations. It appeared to me totally impossible to go into that room and disbelieve in ghosts. The fact is, I had incautiously partaken at supper of that favorite Dutch dish, sauerkraut, and I suppose it hod disagrefd with me and put strange fancies into my hend. Be this as it may, I oniy know that after parting with my friend for the idyht I gradually worked myself up into such a state cf fidxretiness that at last I wasn't sure whether I hadn't become a ghost my self. "Supposing," ruminated I, 'supposing the landlord himself should bo a practical robber and should have taken the lock and bolt from off this door for the purpose of entering here in the dead of thu night, ab stracting all my property, and perhaps murdering me! I thought the iiog had a very cutthroat air about him. " Now, I had never had any such idea until that mo ment, for my host was a fat(ail Dutchmen are fat), stupid looking fellow, who I don't believe had sense enough to under stand what a robbery or murder meant, but) somehow or other, whenever we have anything really to annoy us (and ic cer tainly was not pleasant to go to bud in a strange place without being able to fasten one's door), we aro sure to nsjravato it by myriads of chimeras of our own brain. So, on the present occasion, in the midst of a thousand disagreeable reveries, some of the most wild absurdity, I jumped very gloomily into lied, having first put out my candle (for total darkness was tar prefera ble to its flickering, ghostly light, which transformed rather than revealed objects), ui.d soon fell asleep, perfectly tired out with my day's riding. How long I lay asleep I don't know, but I suddenly awoke from a disagreeable dieam of cutthroats, ghosts and long, winding passages in a haunted inn. An indescribable feeling, such as I never be fore experienced, hung upon me. It seemed as if every nerve in my body bad a hun dred spirits tickling it, and this was ac companied by so great a heat that, in wardly cursing mine host's sauerkraut and wondering how the Dutchmen could en dure sucii poison, I was forced to sit up in bed to cool myself. The whole cf the room was profoundly dark, excepting at ono plaee,whcro the moonlight, failing through a crevice in the shutters, threw a straight lino of about an inch or so thick upon tho floor clear, sharp ami intensely brilliant against the darkness. I leave you to con ceive my horror when, upon looking at this said line of light, I saw there a naked human toe nothing more. For thefirt instant 1 thought tbo vision must be some effect of moonlight, then that I was only half awake and could not see distinctly. So I rubbed my eyes two or three times and looked again. Still there was the accursed tiling plain, distinct, immovable marblelike in its fixedness and rigidity, but in everything else horri bly human. I am not an easily frightened man. No one who has traveled so much and seen so much and been exposed to so many dan gers as I can be, but there was something so mysterious and unusual in the appear ance of this single toe that for a short time I could not think what to be at, so I did nothing but stare at it in a state of utter bewilderment. At length, however, as the toe did not vanish under my steady gaze, I thought I might as well change my tactics, and re nt cm bering that all midnight invaders, bo they thieves, ghosts or devils, dislike noth ing so much us a good noiao I shouted out in a loud voice: "Who's there?" The toe immediately disappeared in tho darkness. Almost simultaneously with my words leaped out of bed and rushed toward the place where I had beheld the strange ap pearance. The next instant I ran against something and felt an iron grip round my body. After this I have no distinct recol lection of wiiat occurred, excepting that a fearful struggle ensued between me and my unseen opponent; that every now and then we were violently hurled to the floor, from which we always rose again in au instant, locked in a deadly embrace: that we tugged and strained and pnlied and pushed, I in the convulsive and frantic en ergy of a fight for life, he (for by this time 1 had discovered that the intruder was a human being) actuated by some passion of which I was ignorant; that we whirled round and round and round, cheek to chi tk and arm to ami, in fierce contest, until the room appeared to whiz round with us, and that at last a dozen people (my fellow traveler among them), roueu, I suppose, by our repeated falls, came injuring- into the room with lights and showed me struggling with a man having nothing on but a shirt, whose long, tangled hair and wild, unsettled eyes told me he was insane. And then, for the first time, I be came aware that. I bad received in the con flict several gashes from a knife, which my opponent still held in his hand. To conclude my story in a few words (for I dare say all of you by this time aro getting very tired), it turned out that my midnight visitor was a madman who was being conveyed to a lunatic asyl um at The Hague, and that lie and his keeper had been obliged to stop at Delft on their way. The poor fellow had contrived during the night to escape from his keeper (who had carelessly forgotten to lock the door of his chamber), and with that irresistible desire to f-hed blood peculiar to many insane peo ple had possessed himself of a pocketknife belonging to the man who had charge of him, entered my room, which was most likely the only one in the house unfasten ed, and was probably meditating the far-ii stroke when I saw his toe in the moon light, the rest of his body being hidden in the shade. After this terrible freak of his he was watched with much greater strictness, but I ought to observe, as some excuse for tho keeper's negligence, that this was the first net of violence lie had ever attempted.
