Rockefeller, Jr.'fl, Bible class yesterday. The ses sion was intended as a sort of Lin coin's birthday observance, 'J&l?*?! ^J2AM5'to -as actuated always by pure motives, was not in his makeup. 8o it does not seem to be a question of whether Lincoln ever publicly pro fessed Ohrist, but that he lived as Christ would have him. There is no questioning the fact that Mr. Lincoln was honest and a good man of high ideals. Such a life is an inspiration to us. Lincoln's example in honesty and determination to do right is well worth eopying." BOTH FOOD AND MEDICINE. W like best to caH Scott's Emulsion a food-medicine.

Chicagot Feb. 12..First pleading, then fighting for admission, more than one thousand peraons were turned away from Bjorgvin hall ladt night, when Erling Bjornson son of Norway *s fore most poet and liberal political leader, addressed five hundred or inore for tunate Norwegians on the recent politi cal crisis in their native land^ The speaker told, in the quaint way which characterizes his father, of "the manner in which Norway reached the highest epoch in its historyits separation irom Sweden. "We might have formed a repub lic, but by the time we would have managed to elect a president we would have Deen starved and naked,'' said the speaker. "Our meager capital, our industries, our fisheries, all lay dor mant and self-destroying while the crit ical period lasted. 'Let it be known now, if the world man was on the alert day and night. In the never knew it before, that every i and I darkest of the nights trains wero se cretly brought near the 'Keel' moun tainsthe Swedish-Norwegian boun dary linewith ammunition and pro visions. Trenches were dug, fortresses were built, and few outside our land, knew of it. Peace hung on the slim mest of slim threads. War was nearer than the world knew. There was not a man nor boy who had not been as signed to his post in case war came. "Then came the man we needed, Christian Mikkelsen, the present prime minister. He found a letter from Bishop Rosensten, one of the repre sentatives of the hostile Swedish party. It held out a severe ultimatum. Mik kelsen burned it, and the next morning he faced the commissioners, 'who held the question of war or peace in their hands, with a face which betrayed any thing but the fact that he had spent a sleepless night. A republican government was against our time honored constitution. We chose to continue as a monarchy because under a constitution like ours the people have more to say and the ruler less than in any country on earth. Then we used foresight and fortified our country thru family relations of the royal house, so that the hungry wolves of Europe cannot swallow us in a mouthful without imminent indigestion. We wanted a man to rule us who can say: 'All for Norway.' DNBIDDEN STRIVE TO SEE WEDDING The boy, who was the son of Bige the space required for a platform for Eddy, formerly a resident of this town, the wedding ceremony, the ribboned had fitted up a loft in the woodshed of Uninvited SenH Gifts in Attempt to Gain Entrance to White House. Washington, Feb. 12.President Roosevelt ^,^siaementr issued oiv Fiji day, asking for the kind consideration of those whom it might have befn im possible to invite to Miss Roosevelt's Wedding, was the outcome of as per sistent and embarrassing a struggle to get invitations to the wedding as has ever been experienced by any person, even in this city of social "butters- in." The White House is not particularly large. If you crowd the east room full of people, standing, there will bo room for about one thousand. Taking out an thru which Miss Boosevelt will waUt W it her father to meet and the other necessary room, there cannot be more than 800 people ac commodated for the wedding. Thip made it imperative that the invitations should be kept down to 800. Straggle for Cards. The lists were scrutinized very care fully. If it could have been arranged there would have been several thou sand invitations. The list was pruned in every possible way. It was held tr its lowest limits. When the cards went out the struggle for invitations began. People who were not invited, but wanted to be^4aid siege to the White House. They used' every sort of an. expedient to get a card. Secretary Loeb was held up personallv by tele Iiticae hon a religious way no one seems have known," said Mr. Rockefeller. "It is a question that has been very widely discussed. But if there is any doubt as to whether Mr. Lincoln was a Christian, one thing is certainhe did follow Christ's teachings. "Mr. Lincoln's life was one con tinued effort to do what wag right. He impossible to invite. This had ape was considerate of his fellowman and and besought by letter. Po influence was exerted. Most embarrassing of all was tho sending of expensive gifts to Miss Alice by persons .the president and Mrs. Roosevelt did not Vnow. Several very costly presents from persons who desired to get invitations have been sent to the White House with the in timation^thar in^iuT for" the tfft a card to the wedding would be grateB fully received. Appeal and Boomerang. In a hope of stopping this sort of thing the president issued his appeal for forbearance to those whom it was culiar boomerang effect. Most of those who had been insistent for invitations took the appeal to mean somebody^ else and made another effort to get invi tations on the theory that it did not mean them, but did mean everybody else. The president is much perplexed about the gifts from the persons who have no reason to send presents. It is a most embarrassing situation, and in order to meet it as diplomatically possible, no official list of the guests will be published. In confidence the various classes of persons who have been invited have been indicated to the newspapers, but beyond that, un less plans change, there will be no an nouncement of the guests. Thus, if a "butter-in" wan'ts to claim he OT she was at the wedding, there will be no official list to refute the claim. FIRE AT STURGIS, S. D.

Duluth, Minn., Feb. 12.If one is very economical, watches the nickels and dimes and attends bargain sales he can worry along on an income of $10,000 a year. This is the theory of Gov ernor Johnson, at least. The governor, in an address at a meeting held by the Young Men's Christian association in a theater here Sunday, said it wasn't necessary to have a cent more than that amount and declared no person should be permitted to have an income larger than that. I don't think any man should have more than $10,000 a year," said the governor. "I he lives right he does not need any more." In spite of the governor's eloquence, Dressers.

Man Never Has Enough. "The most false standard of suc cess in the world," said the speaker, is that which sets up dollars and cents as the height of its ambition, for the simple reason that no matter how much monev a man may acquire there never comes a time when he can rest and be content that he has enough if he has been a devotee to the money god. There is a man in New York who has set his ambition at $1,000,000,000, and if he ever lives to acquire it he will be sorry that it is not $2,000,000,000. Organized society as it -exists to day might very fairly- be divided into two general, classes, those who have more appetite than dinners and those who have more dinners than appetite, and I feel positively certain that the greater amount of real misery exists among the people of the latter class. "As a life work I would rather be able to provide for the needs of a fam ily, en-joy the fellowship of good books and good friends and write one book that would be read a hundred years from now than to be able to amass all the money in the world."

"To the young men I say, make a resolve never to soil your conscience for the sake of making a friend, for the man who would ask you to do something contrarv to what is right is pot worth having for a friend."
