Senator J. B. Foraker was given
an enthusiastic reception by his Be
publican friends Friday afternoon
and evening. He arrived at 4:15 and
was escorted from Union station to
Buchtel hotel by 50 citizens. A num
ber of friends called on Mr. Foraker
at the hotel.
The speaker wis escorted to As
sembly hall by members of the
Yonng Men's Republican club and
others. Assembly hall was well
Henry Perkins was chairman and
almost 100 old soldiers were on the
stage as vice presidents. Upon
reaching the stage members of the
executive committee handed small
flags to the soldiers. They were to
wave the flags frequently and they
did. A band was present; so was a
vocal quartette.
In all generosity it must be said
that the performance was staged al
most as perfectly as though a the
atrical manager had it in charge.
"We didn't pull down the flag in
the Sixties, and we'll not do it now,"
said Chairman Perkins, turning to
address the concluding part of the
sentence to the soldiers "Will we,
"Kb! no!" was the chorus, and the
maze of shaken flags produced a su
perb effect, whil at a given cue'
the quartette arose and sang,
"Kally 'Round the Flag Boys." The
audience was much pleased with
this bit of extravaganza, and ap
plauded vigorously.
Senator Foraker, in beginning his
address, paid Akron citizens a fine
compliment and thanked all for the
generous reception he was accorded.
It was very evident that he was
not here as much in the interests of
Candidate Ivash as he was for those
of J. B. Foraker. The able states

and so of late he has been traveling
about the state urging the election of

amples where legislative endorse
ment was lacking, and chief execu
tives bereft of power especially
Cleveland in his first administration
and McKinley's first years of reign
with a Democratic senate.
He also talked on prosperity and
the outlook of the campaign for 1900.
To bring about Mr. McKinley's re
election Mr. Nash must be elected,
he said.
"And then Jones well Jones is a
big-hearted man I believe that he
is sincere, but he has no moro chance
of winning than he has of jumping
over the moon the fight is between
Nash and McLean. (Vigorous ap
plause for Jones.)
"I've got justabout as much inter
esliu this election as the men who
are shouting for Jones. I am merely
here as a citizen to talk with you.
"I don't want to see John R. Mc
Lean elected, because he's aDemo-
cratand I am a Republican."
Mr. Foraker did not abuse the
Democratic candidate in the meas
ure it was hoped he might. The
Senator has a personality of his
own; he was here for his own inter
est, and the proud spirit has not
bended in abjection to the Hanna
rule. Oh, no! Foraker was here for

Tone. A new cime. Cen. xxxii. 24-2U: Rrv.
li. 17.
Among lae oriental nations great im
portance ts attached to names. The
Jews, for instance, in naming children
.elected the names for important rea
sons, because of some incident connect
ta with the birth of the child or in an
attempt to describe the character of the
child. It is also customary to mark
one's entrance into a new relation by a
new name, the acceptance of the name
signifying the acceptance of the new
sovereignty and the obligations con
tained therein. It is easy to tee, there
fore, why God would signalize the en
trance of His people into new relations
with Him by giving them a new name,
as He did to Abram, to Sarai, to Jacob
and to others, and it is also eas-y to see
the appropriateness of designating the
new relation to God in heaven bv the
giving of a new name.
A new name given by God signifies
that we have come into a new relation
with God. It signifies that we have
passed through a crisis in life, have had
some new religions experience as a re
sult, of which wo have come closer to
God, have got a better conception of
God and have consecrated ourselves
anew to God. Jacob's new name had
such significance. At Jabbok. where he
wrestled with the angel until he re
ceived the blessing, his name was
changed from Jacob (snpplanter) to
Israel (prince of God). At Jabbok
Jacob had a new experience he passed !
through a crisis in his Mo, he got a
new and exalted conception of God and
undoubtedly came into a new relation
of consecration to God. He was entire
ly changed by the power of God. Jacob
stood for his old life and character and
Israel for the new. God gives to. all His
people at such times a new name. It is
His own name. When onr lives are
changed, when we come into a new re
lation to God, God's name is stamped
upon ns. We are God's people, God's
children, and our highest aim shonld
be to keep the new name we hear un
sullied by being faithful to the new re
lation. The heavenly new name spoken of in
Revelation has largely the same signifi
cation as the earthly new name. It
stands for our new relation to God. and
it also must be iu some way the name
of God. "To him tliat overcometh
I will write upon him the name of my
God" (Rev. iii. 12). Jnst what the
heavenly new name is, just what it
signifies, we do not know, but what is
more important here, how the new
name may be obtained, we do know. It
is better for us to know how to get the
new name than to know so much about
it The all important question in this
life is. How may we obtain the new
name t And this is the way we must
overcome in Christ's name. "To him
that overcometh will I give tc eat of
the hidden manna and will give him a
white stone, and in the stone a new
name written, which no man knoweth,
saving he that "receiveth it." If we
overcome self, the world and sin, God
will feed us upon the hidden manna.
spiritual blessings impossible of attain
ment on earth. He will give us the
white stone of acquittal on which will
be inscribed the new name. Let us go
forth in the power and strength of God
in Christ to overcome, that wo may be
assured that we will experience thi3
rich heavenly blessing.

A Menttee to GotlliiievN.
Far more dangerous to true godliness
is that spirit among Christians which
loves to mingle with the world and con
forms itself to it. And this is the great
temptation of Christians today. They
allow themselves to be lost in the
world's pleasures and concerns and have
no time for secret meditation. Caught
np by the whirl of this busy, giddy life,
they have no desire for communion
with God and do not know the value of
solicitude. They find no time to think
on things" that are- "lovely" and of
good report. They have turned th3ir
ears to the noises of this world and are
deaf to the message of the ft still small
voice. " Lutheran.

Hotf n Crack Shot Deonmc indebted
to an Irlib. Sergeant.
"They tell a funny story in the army
about Captain Patillo, the crack shot,"
saidone of a party of late diners. "Ac-
cording to the yarn General Miles and
a high Washington official once visited
a western post where the captain was
stationed and sent word that they
would like to see a little exhibition of
his skill. Patillo happened to be quite
sick at the time, but he couldn't very
well refuse and presently appeared on
the long distance range. He blazed
away, and an Irish bergeaut. who bad
been sent out to act as marker waved
a small flag. 'What does that mean':'
asked the distinguished visitor. "It
mean.-, I missed the whole target,' re
plied Patillo gloomily. He tried again,
with the same result. 'I don't know
what's the matter with me!' he ex
claimed in deep mortification. '1 never
did such work In my life.'
"At the third shot the distant figure
varied the wigwagging, and the as
teirWcd officers applauded. The sig
nal icoaiit a bullseye. Thereupon he
fired 2; consecmhe rounds, and each
time the flag waved back the uews
that he had pierced the inuer circle. It
was a marvelous record, an unparal
leled score. The distinguished visitor
was very gracious in his congratula
tions. - "Later on Patillo, still beaming, met
the marker crossing the parade
grounds. 'Hello, sergeant!' he said,
"I wonder what the deuce made me
mis the target those first two shots?'
'Whist, captain!' replied the Irishman,
drawing close. "Tis divil the tolme ye
hit it at all. at all!' 'Didn't hit it at
all!' cried Patillo in amazement. 'Then
why did you signal all those bulls
eyeY' 'Faith, sor.' said the sergeant
reproachfully, 'I knew yer ripytation

"So. 1 am not going out In the even
ings just now to anything but strictly
informal affairs." remarked a friend of
the saunterer the other day. "Why?
Well, because just ndw I am not the
possessor of a dress suit and lack the
wherewithal to purchase another. It
happened tiiis way: I had a frieud, a
jrood fellow, who came to me one night
and aked me if I wouldn't lend him
my swallowtail. I consented, but I
to!d him 1 wanted the clothes back the
next week, as 1 had a function to at
tend myself.
"Well, to make a long story short.
the week went by and not a word
from my friend or not a sign of my
evening duds. 1 had to cross my date
and was pretty mad, but I didn't say
anything. Another week went by and
still no word. Tlieu I decided to go out
and hunt up my friend and find out if
lie intended to keep my clothes forever.
"I called at his boarding house and
rang the bell. His landlady came to
the door. When I asked tf my friend
was in, she gave a gasp of astonish
ment and exclaimed, 'Why, didn't you
know he was dead and buried?
"It was my turn to be knocked out.
After I recovered my breath, I explain
ed that I had not heard the news and
had merely called to take back my
dress suit. It would doubtless be found
among my friend's effects. I explained.
"The landlady turned pink, white
and then pink again. 'Why,' she gasp
ed, 'that must have been the suit we
buried him iu. It was the only good
one we found among his wardrobe.'
"So you see tho reason why I say
no to U. S. V. P. notes just now."

"Family" In the Cesiaa.
There are some queer features about
the census use of the word "family."
It means practically those who eat at
the same table. A hotel is a family.
The Memorial Hall Dining association
at Cambridge is a family; so is the
Danvers Lunatic asj-lum. A stray man
who keeps bachelor's hall Is a family.
The necessity for tins use of the term
came with the question of enumerat
ing domestic servants. It was found
absolutely Impossible to attach them
to their own families, .scattered as they
are. They had to go with the family
they were llvimr with. This led to a
continuation of the principle, with the
result mentloued. As it works out, the
census family differs from the actual
family iu size only by a small fraction
of one person. New Tork Post
