50,000 KINO'S IAUGIITKIS. An Increase of 40,000 In Membership In Seres Months. Last Spring the Caledonian publish ed an article from the New York Sun upon the organization called, "The King's Daughters," founded by Mrs. Margaret Bottome of New York city, who is well known in this place. The Sun has published another article up on the subject from which we have taken copious extracts : Between May 1 and May 19, 17,035 letters, with many orders for the bad ges of the order, were received by the treasurer, a delicate, woman, whose labor of love thus attained herculean proportions. Now the order numbers 40,(M) enrolled members, together with a probable contingent of It), (XX) more which have not reported to central ollicers, and comprises an associate order of King's Sons. The light of the silver cross in America catches an an swering gleam from Australia, from Mexico and India, from sober, conser vative .Scotland, from the unemotional Lutheran Church in Germany, from the Catholic communions, and from all classes iu England, the highest and the lowest. France holds out her eager bauds, claiming to have originated the first Sisterhood of the Cross, an ancient society whose badge was the Maltese cross, and the brave-hearted Sisters of the Red Cross in Germany long to fasten the silver cross of peace beneath the crimson sign of carnage. The King's Sons are banded together uuder the same motto, the promotion of "Whatsoever thingsare true and what soever things are pure," wear the same badge and royal color, and are govern ed by the same central council. The phenomenal growth of the order, its widespread influence, its mighty power, its uncontrolled, undisciplined force, its capacity for work, and its undirected energies well might make the little council of earnest women at the head pause in silence. How gladly would some of them have stayed the rushing tide. How quickly would they have lain down their responsibilities if they had dared. Miss Libbey's lit tle room was packed iu every availa ble space on the bureau, over the mantle, uuder the bed with hundreds of unanswered appeals for crosses and mottort, and the brave, earnest secre tary, Mrs. Dickenson, was half buried under a mountain of letters asking, "What shall we do as King's Daugh ters T" written by ministers and lay men, by bedridden invalids, little children, centenarians, young men, factory girls, who had hardly enough work to keep body and soul together, and yet longed for some sweet, small service to the King, and the fair flow ers of the avenue who had never set foot in the city streets unattended and knew no wish ungra titled. There wasn't a law or by-law, a resolution or a pledge in the order save the silent soul pledge of every Daughter to be loyal to her King iu life and service. The little band of ten sat down and considered the problem, ami deter mined, though the fundamental spirit of the society was "not to cumber the service with needless organization, but to unite women already engaged iu the Master's work in a way to secure the cooperation of all," that the time had come when nothing but organiza tion could dam the mighty tide which seemed to overwhelm them, and turn its power to usefulness. Accordingly, a constitution has been written and adopted by which every state contain ing ten circles of the Kings Daughters shall have a secretary, appointed by them, working under and reporting to the central council, ami every county having ten circles shall have a county secretary under the stale secretary. Whenever fifty mem hers of a state so ciety shall become interested iu a special work they shall be organized into a chapter, and communicate with the chairman of the committee elected by the central council, under whose department their work is classified. There are ten of these committees, in teresting themselves iu foreign and home mission education, temperance, city evangelization, charity organ iza tion, work among working women and working girls, and among men and boys, among Indians, and among in valids. A monthly journal devoted to the interests of the society, and con taining the information requested in the thousands of inquiring letters, is published by the central council. It is bound iu purple covers, stamped with a silver cross, ami bears the in scription "The Silver Cross, the au thoii.eil organ of the King's Daughters and King's Sons." Of the new Tens formed, the most tender in sentiment are the Memorial Tens of lit tic children, formed of the surviving companions of a deatl child, and a "Wilhelm Teu" of ladies has been formed by the bereaved mother of a dead son, who are to work for the little sick children of the poor or in hospitals, sending them flowers, books, &c. An An ti -Gossip Ten of young ladies has been formed who fiue them selves one cent every time they find themselves concerned iu their neigh bor's business. The result of one month's existence of this little band was fifty-live cents, to which a gentle man interested added $1. all of which was devoted to charity. One of the eight Duncan groups of ten in Brook lyn have raise. I by their personal efforts j!HI i aid an endowment fund for tf,IMM) for a free bed in a hospital ; the "Fid.la.Ten" send $M to the Fresh Air fund : the "Non Ego Ten" in Swaithiuore College, Pennsylvania, simply consider the wants of others in preference to their own : three Tens in South Carolina liquidated a debt of jJ.VJo on a "House of Rest:" "The Kind's Guard" of King's Sons abstain from alcohol and tobacco : one Ten aids Miss Barton of the Red Cross; 'I' r.irlin.r" -ill. I ''I'.ifi. in ll..i.-t" ...a..F.i..i0 ...... . . v ... ifat Tens among colored gills claim sister ship with an 'Abiding" Ten of wealthy society gills who sew for poor women and pay rent and buy fuel for indigent old men and women ; a Ten in New Orleans h ire adopted an Indian boy to educate him as a missionary to his own M-ople. The adoption of children is a favorite work of the Tens. A Ten of factoty girl, with scarcely sullicient money for their needs, have entered enthusiastically upon the self-appointed task of raising .5,(KK) to endow a bed in a hospital. No charity, however high or lowly, no service, however humble or mighty, that is not given gladly iu the light of the silver cross, In His Name. Remember to be Mrrclful. Minneapolis Tribune. There is miiclr thoughtless barbarity in the world, and if men claiming to be lords of intelligence would ouly stop to think, the amount of suffering which would Iks fpared to that lower order of animal life w,i., ,a8 only less intelli gence than man, would bo infinite. For instance, if every horse owuer who reads this article wonld take the precaution to carefully instruct the man having charge of his stable to carefully warm the bit before forcing it into the mouth or the animal, much snfTerine might be saved. The severe cold of winter will soon be upon us and that metal ansorus irost as a sponge does water, has been painfully demonstrated to most of us some time in life. The mucous surfaces can with out more pain be exposed to a red hot iron than to iron filled with frost. Warm the bit carefully before forcing it between the teeth of your faithful horse. It Might Have Been Worse. A Maine man who is prominent in politics in that state was being "chaffed77 in the Fifth Avenue hotel, New York, the other day by some of his friends because in the state election last September the republicans had telegraphed broadcast that the repub lican plurality was 20,000, while a few days later their claim had fallen to some 2,000 less. This, of course, was the occasion of the loud cry sent up by the democrats that they had gained a great victory. The man from Maine took the joking good-naturedly and in explaining the democratic victory in his state said that it reminded him of a story about a man who was killed in a railway accident. Some one tele graphed to his wife: "Sad news. Your husband was killed in the accident to day. Both arms and his head were severed from the body." The next day, however, the following message was sent : "Case not so bad as was thought at first. Your husband was killed and his head was severed from his body, but only one arm was taken off." Gen. Harrison and Interviewers. When Gen. Harrison presented him self in the front parlor iu answer to my card I started to ask him if there was any truth in this report, but before I had my question half asked he inter rupted me with : "Stop right where you are, sir" (and his manner was not altogether pleasant either). "1 have often said that I would not be inter viewed and you need not exhibit .any enterprise in attempting to obtain from me an interview in an indirect way. That is what it would amount to if I should undertake to answer whether a newspaper rumor was true or not." "But, general, this is from a leading republican paper." "I don't care what it is from. It is a newspaper rumor, and the newspapers will have to take care of their own rumors at least, I shall not. I will at no time deny or confirm any of them." Before I had reached the open door, which had been opened by the gene ral's own hand, I asked him if the re port that Mrs. Harrison expected to visit Mrs. Grant iu New York was true, ami he was much more calm in expressing his reply than when I ask ed him it he had offered Allison the treasuiy port-folio. Ho said: "Mrs. Harrison lias no plans with reference to visiting New York, although it is possible that she may go there." A scientific writer claims that the importance of salt as good for the blood and an aid to digestion has been very much over-rated. He shows that there are many daces in the world where salt is not known ; yet the in habitants are all very healthy. An ingenious inventor has devised a new screw half-nail and half-screw ; two blows of the hammer, two turns of the screw-driver, and it is iu. Its holding power in white pine is said to be JfcJ pounds against 2'Jd pounds, the holding power of the present screw. Notice of Probate of Will. ANNA liOAG S ESTATK.
