"Wilson was aippo&nted conference visitor to the university of southern California from Arizona. Bishop Foss then addressed the con ference on the subject "The Respon sibility of Methodism." One million seven hundred and fifl:y thousand peo ple in this country prefer the Metho dist churches to others. This throws upon them thie responsibility of main- lainong sound evangelical teaching. They are called of God to take the lead in missionary efforts for She salvaltion of the world. Statistics .were' given showing that the church, is ndS losing its hold on the masses, . In alL our large cities the , membership of the church is increas ing much faster than the population. This increase is principally to those wards where the laboring classes pre dominate.

Hill, supenntendenit of tne Black copper group of claims, that de velopment work has been temporarily susnended to permac of me unaer- ground works being timbered. The mine has been sufficiently explained tn demonstrate llts wrealt value, and even at the present stage Of develop ment, it is safe to predict tharc it win prove to be one of the largest and most produdaive copper mines in u-iooe ois- troot. A one-fourth interest in the Black copper group was recently sold to New York parlies, who are Tenners ana large dealers in copper, and Dr. J. M. Ford and Jas. A. Fleming of Phoenix, who bonded the property, are now in New ..York negotiating for the transfer of the other three-fourlths to the same parties Who purchased the quarter in terest. IThey are fully informed as to 'the merits of the property, and recently tested a sample of 2,200 pounds of -the ore at their eastern refinery, the result being very satisfactory. Hoisting works will be purchased immediately, and shipped from the east, and whether the property is sold. or not, Ithe work of development will be resumed and vigorously pusned and reduction works erected ait an early date. CASTLE'S CASE. MYSTERIES OF 'THE LOUVRE. Vague Stories of Imperial Crime Beach the Outside World. I Everyone who has "done" the Louvre ; will remember, the low-pitched and : somewhat gloomy halls, in which are , stored the treasures of Egypt. Beneath these lie yet more darkly mysterious vaults, inaccessible to .the public, though approached by a wide and hand some staircase, such as would lead one to imagine that it communicated with apartments of some importance. Yet one finds at the bottom nothing but broad passages disposed in the form of a cross, and without any sign what ever of door or window. A recent examination, however, Of the solid walls gives experts reason to Ijelieve that the masonry is more recent than the rest of the structure in this, the oldest portion of the fortress pal- M. "Vaugneux, a well-known critic. believes that many of the bodies of j victims killed in the revolution of 1830 were immured here, and that the gov ernment was afraid to reveal the facts when the remains of their comrades were collected beneath the Colonne de Juillet. 'On the other hand, M. Blondel, the architect of the building, and M. Nor iuand, the secretary of the Society for Protecting Parisian Monuments, hold the opinion that these subterranean passages led to the oubliettes into which Catherine de Medicis cast those who were unfortunate enough to incur her hate or fear., A judicious explora tion would clear up the matter, and settle, too, several doubtful points as to the foundations of Lescot's original citadel. Unfortunately, the annual grant does not provide for any such archaeological research, and it would be necessary to appeal for funds to the generosity of the chamber. London Chronicle. " PAID ONE AT A TIME. Pennies Not Legal Tonder in Amounts of More Than Twenty-I'ieo Cents. There is a postmaster in a little town not far distant, who is noted for the amount of authority he is inclined to show in trivial matters. A short time ago, says the Mount Morris (Mich.) Union, a business man of the place ap peared before the stamp window of the office and demanded 300 one-cent stamps, for which he laid down an equal number of pennies. Here was a good chance for the authoritative gentleman. and with a view of teaching his impor tance, he picked 25 pennies from the ! heap, handed out 25 stamps and shoved the rest of the money to the would-be buyer with the remark that pennies were not legal tender there in amounts of more than 25 cents. i Expostulation was in vain, the post master cited the law in the case and that seemed to settle it. With a malicious gleam in his eye the buyer swept the re maining pennies into his pocket and mildly inquired: "I suppose I can get a one-cent stamp here for a penny, can't I?" "Certainly," s&ifl tne man at the window. "Then give me a one-cent stamp," said the other laying down the money. It was handed to him, and he demanded another and another after that. Several peopie had come in in the meantime, and were impatiently wait ing their turn at the window, but the obdurate buyer juipt on gravely buying one-cent stamps on the installment plan. Seeing determination in the face of the other, .the postmaster offered to arbitrate, but it was of no avail. He continued to buy as long as his money lasted, and- triumphantly , . departed amidst the approving smiles of the crowd. : - AFTER THE ARMADA. Snowballs Rolled by the Wind. a5! Passengers on the Flint Kiver divi sion of the Flint & Pere Marquette rail road who came to Flint, Mich., recently reported observing a strange phenom enon in large, level fields not far from the city, says the Chicago Tribune. Hundreds of snowballs, some of them of colossal size, have been rolled to gether, it is thought, by the action of the wind. The fields were covered with, them, and naturae accomplished in one night what it would take a large force of bovs several davs to do. WHY ENGLAND IS GREAT. 1 Britain's The Imprisoned Man Says His Inno cence Will Be Established. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 10. The rel atives of Walter Castle, imprisoned to London for the alleged shoplifting of funs and jewelry, received today the first cablegram since Walter's arrest, from the imprisoned merchant him self. The cablegram was sent this evening from Ixmioni and reads: Reassure mother. .We are well and our innocence will be established Tues day." DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. A Native Offers an Explanation Naval Superiority. How was it that half an island over which Queen Elizabeth ruled developed into the world-wide empire over which Queen Victoria reigps? Firs and fore most, says Blackwood's Magazine, it must be referred to the qualities of the race, their energy, and adventurous spirit, their capacity to colonize, to rule subject races, and to administer their affairs. That race was sprung of suc cessive seafaring invoders of these is lands who were trained for generations in the arduous defense of these shores, and taught to achieve naval superior ity as a necessity of their position. As early as Edward III. the sover eignty of the narrow seas was asserted, and conceded as a-raatter of course by the people of the low countries, As centuries rolled on, the insularity of our position became more marked as our possessions, in' Europe dwindled aw9y. The drill sergeant, who is the artificer of German fortunes, has had no ascendency in these islands, whose, preoccupations have not risen from mil itary empires on their boundaries. Naval superiority has been the guarantee of our shores, and at the same time the foundation of an empire which has grown up beyond the seas. The same qualities which achieved ordered liberty at home spread commerce, settlements and empires abroad, SPECIFIC For Scrofula. 'Since xshildhood, have beer, afflicted with scrofulous Dcils anfi sores, which, caused . me terrible suffering. Physicians were unable to help me, and I only grew worse under their care. At length, I began to take i AYER'S Sarsaparilla, and very soon grew bet ter. After using half a dozen bottles I was completely cured, so that I have not had a boif or pimple on any part of my bodj for the last twelve years. I can cordially recommend Ayer's Sarsa parilla as the very best blood-purifier in existence." G. T. Beinhakt,. Myersville, Texas. 1 The Combination of Trade and Private War Under Elizabeth. The defeat of the Armada inspired England with energy and hope. Our people, says Blackwood's Magazine, be came busy traders. Flemish traders had been ruined by war, Flemish refu gees had flocked into England, and Antwerp, the great port for new world commerce, had been sacked and taken. England succeeded to the trade of which the Dutch had been deprived. Beyond the ocean lay a vast world of wealth, of which Spain, united with Portugal, claimed the monopoly, thereby exclud ing English commerce from the larger half of the planet. Systematic vio lence that is, the combination of trade with private wair was the only mode in which this monopoly could be at tacked. ' Elizabeth connived at this covert mar itime war both before and after the Armada, and thestrugglesbetween Eng lish traders and Spanish monopolists were far too numerous and important to admit of peace between the two gov ernments. It was this spirit of com mercial adventure, whether it be called piracy or a heroic attempt to rescue the new world from the inquisition and give it back to the free use of the human race, which was the first step in the de velopment of three colossal growths 'British trade, British empire, the Brit ish navy. .-f I A THE ONLY WOELD'S FATE j Sarsaparilla Acer's Cherry Pectoral cum Coughs and Colds SUMMER EXCURSIONS. iTor copy of Illustrated excursion folder issued by the Vandalia-Penasyl-vania, address A.

Treated All People Alike in a Courteous Manner. , "Horace Greeley once said: 'I doubt whether man, woman or child, white or black, bound or free, virtuous or vi cious, ever accosted or reached forth a hand to Abraham Lincoln and detect ed in his countenance or manner any repugnance or shrinking from the prof fered contact, any assumption of supe riority, or betrayal of disdain.' "Frederick Douglas, the orator and patriot, is credited with saying: 'Mr. Lincoln is the only white man with whom I have ever talked, or in whose presence I have ever been, who did not consciously or unconsciously betray to me that he recognized my color.' George Bancroft, ' the historian, al luding to this characteristic, which was never so conspicuously manifested as during the darker days of the .war, beautifully illustrates it in these mem orable words: 'As a child, m a dark night, on a rugged way, catching hold of the hand of its father for guidance and support, Lincoln clung fast to the hand of the people and moved calmly through the gloom.' " , Kept Both Places. When the czar was made cplonel of the Royal Scots Grays an officer of the regiment said to his orderly. "Donald, have you heard that the new emperor of Russia has been appointed colonel of the regiment?" "Indeed, sir," replied Donald, "it is a vera prood thing." Then, after a pause. ' Beg pardon, sir, but wull he be able to keep both places?" Much Bean Porridge. I A family, residing in Lakeville, Conn., were visited by relatives residing some distance off. One of the visitors re marked that there had been a great quantity of bean porridge made in his mother's family; "enough," said he, "to float a 74-gun ship. Don't you think so, Uncle John?" appealing to one of his relatives. "Yes, yeg," replied that uncle ; "and the ship could float 24 hours and not hit a bean." Scai.enmanliM.0 uiw- 1 The successful horse-dealer is never at a loss. Witness the following incident from an exchange: A young English man was negotiating with a dealer foi a horse. The horseman expatiated on the many good points of the animal under discussion. "It seems to me, Mr. Muggins," re marked the young man, "that the horse has rather a big head." The. retort came at once: "Big 'ead, big 'ead, do you call it ? Why, look at Gladstone ; what a 'ead 'e's got ! " v Won't Work There. . , It: is an odd fact that the telegraph lines will not work through the Hoosac tunnel. Messages have to be sent on wires strung on poles over the top of the mountains, fully nine miles, and that is the way ingoing and outcoming passenger and freight trains are her alded to the keepers of the two tunnel approaches. In order to maintain this overland mountain line a swath of woodland has to be kept clear of trees and bushes directly up the steep moun tain side. There are supposed to be magnetic ores inside the mountain, WE CAN SAVE YOU TIME And time is money.
