Miss Rose Alice Maco gives a most Interesting account of "The Mlntslng Fair," held recently In Mlntslngli slcn, China: "This fair has tho distinction of being the only one of its kind held in China. It is held on the spot where a temple- once stood. A weal thy old gentleman who admired the spot and coveted it as a burial place for his family, by a clover ruse got the temple moved, and tombs for his ancestors safely erected when the deception he had employed was dis covered,- and tho people determined upon revenge. "There Is. a superstition prevalent there that if tho grave of a. person be trodden upon, that person's fami ly will bo unfortunate through life, Therefore It was decided each year the people of tho surrounding neigh borhood should meet and tramp on the graves of this man's friends. La ter they began taking a few articles with them to exchange or sell. This gradually Increased until now thous ands of people meet there and bring all kinds of things for sale. "Tho people seem to have about forgotten tho original purpose of the gathering, and now think of It only from a social and business stand point. Dut the Interesting thing to us is that the missionaries have ta ken advantage of tho opportunity of so large a gathering for spreading the gospel. Hunches with wwnlngs are erected nearby, aqd a large Chl- nese sign placed in a conspicuous place extends a cordial invitation te the people to come and listen to preaching and singing. "Large Spnday Sclrool lesson pic tures are exhibited and smaller ones distributed containing the Scripture texts In Chinese, and so interest Is maintained. The people In gener al," says Miss Since, "seemed pleased to have an opportunity of learning something of our belief and doc trine. Many seemed favorably Im pressed, and" several seamed really Interested and anxious to learn mora about the great tduths presented to them." i TKMTEIIAXCR CAMPAIGN ALONG BUSINESS LINES New York is on the job with a new temperance campaign, which some newspapers are pronouncing eminently sensible. It Is the out growth of a plan originated by the Churches of Christ of America. No rellgiouns method will be used in the campaign. No effort will bo mado to secure legislation prohibit ing the sale of liquor. The sponsors of vthe movement bellevo that volun tary abstinence Is tho only means by which intempsrpneo may be abol ished, and their purpose will be to demonstrate to the individual the loss in efficiency duo to excessive drinking. A committee of 100 prominent fi nancial, industrial and labor union men will conduct the campaign. Al bert H. Rpgers, an organizer well known for his work In connection with the St. Louis World's Fair, l tho active head' of the movement. Regarding the movement a commit tee member has this to say: "Tho H THOROUGH TEST Ono To Coin I nee tlio Mot Skeptical Hertford Header, Tho test of time is the test that counts. Doan's Kidney Pills have mado their reputation by offectivo action. Tho following case is typical. Hartford resldonts should bo con vinced. Tho testimony is confirmed tho proof complete. Testimony like this cannot bo ig nored. Mrs. Eva Hobbs, N, Seminary St., Madlsonvlllo, says: "I used every thing that was recommended for kidney complaint, but tho trouble remained. I tried pjastors mid dif ferent medicines, too, without suc cess. Finally my attention was call ed to Doau's Kldnoy Pills. After taking a few doses, 1" felt tholr ben cflclal effect.

This was tho sentence: To return to the 'rightful owner tho sum of $295; to be given thirty-nine lashes on the bare back in a public place and to bo branded with tho letter "T" on tho back of tho right hand. This all happened In Houston in the spring of 1837. The first book of records was dug from a dusty sholf one afternoon recently In tho Harris county court house. O, M. Du Clos, Clerk of tho District Court, and ho who Is known as the Investi gator Into tho 'Affairs of Others, did tho digging. Tho first book of tho records of the legal doIngH of Harris county Is a yellow and old thing. The first matter written In It Is a statement signed by Sam Houston giving au thorlty for tho court.
