Vermont baa done away with fast day, but New Hampshire continnea the grand old custom. Governor Rollins baa named Thursday, April 13, and in his proclama tion makes some remarkable statements re garding tbe decay of religion in tbe rural districts of tbe g-anite atate. He says : "I supgeat that, as far as possible, on Fast Day union meetings be held, made up of all shades of belief, including all who are interested in tbe welfare of our atate, and (hat in your prayers and other devotioDS, and in your mutual counsels, you remem ber and consider .the problem of the condi tion of religion in the rural communities. There are towns where no church bell sends forth its solemn call from January to January; there are villagea where children grow to manhood nnchiistened ; there are communities where tbe dead are laid away without the benizon of the name ot The Christ, and where marriages are solemnized only by justices of tbe peace. This is a matter worthy of your thoughtful consideration, citizens cf New Hampshire. It does not augur well for tbe future. You can afford to devote one day in tbe year to your fellow-men, to work and thought and prayer for your children and your children's children." WESTMINSTER. A son wss born to Dr. and Mrs D. G.

Her Prtvmt Paaeh. r- Tbe women hurried along Adama street from tbe Art institute on their way to the Woman's Euchre club at Handel ball. "Just run in with me here a min ute," said one. "I've got to get me a punch." The clerk showed a collection of punches that made holes of various Ibapes. "No," said the shopper. "I want just a simple, round punch this size." And she abstracted a cardboard from her pocket that showed the site of the perforation. "Oh, very well!" said tbe cleric "we have it. But it's not called for very of ten for private games. " And the punch waa brought out and sold promptly. The second woman wondered what her friend wanted of that particular punch, but kept her curiosity to herself. The game was exciting, and, as the friend is a good player, she won eight games. The second woman noticed this particularly. But when the score cards were exhibited the friend had 11 credit marks punched in her score card. The other woman saw then the wherefore of tbe particular punch they had bought. The friend had won eight games, and then had done a little punching with a private punch. The prizes at these dab contests are quite valuable, and the spirit of gam bling has become eo pronounced among some of the players that they are not above resorting to unfair means to cap ture them.

Only tbe other day the Guatemalan minister was speaking to some Wash ington ladies of what he regarded as a remarkable social experience met with here at the capital. He had been invit ed to an afternoon reception. "And do you know." he said, the hostess received the guests in a night gown 1" "Good heavens I" replied the ladies to whom this information was ad dressed. "Surely you are joking, Mr. Minister 1" "Not at all. I assure you." reiterated the diplomat. "It was in her nightdress that we were received low neck and hare armsl" "Oh, you mean evening dress, do yon not, Mr. Minister V suggested one of the ladies. "Yes, that ia what I mean," admit ted Senor Arriaga; "low neck and bare arms, just like the costume for the opera or ball. " As may be imagined, the laugh waa at tbe minister's expense. In Washing ton ladies quite commonly wear even ing dress when giving afternoon recep tions. Boston Herald. Feudalism la Hsmaasr Inconceivable as the anachronism may seem to the western mind, tbe agrarian system of Hungary has not yet issued from tbe feudal form. The Hun garian farmer of today is virtually a serf, bound to his master, the hereditary owner of tbe soil which the peasant tills, by the tangible tie of personal liability. The Hungarian feudal lord of today is entitled to 60 days' labor from each male adult who dwells on his land.
