SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1912
The funeral of the late Charles H.

ceremony. Three ministers officiated

eulogy by Rev. Mr. Thompson was
Thoburn Post of the G. A. R. es
corted the body and consigned it to
the grave with the ritualized honors
of war, Messrs. John Chambers and
J. S. Metzger reading the service, and
then the weird calls of the bugles and
the sharp volleys of guns signalized
“ All is over!
He sleeps the sleep of the brave !”
The floral offerings filled a large
vehicle and several, conspicuously
beautiful, had to be specially carried.
A large number of friends constitu
ted the cortege ,. and it was a touching
manifestation of popular respect and
sympathy made by the business houses
in closing during the funeral hour.

Miss Nellie W. Dils and James W.

Unusual Religious Occasion.
One of the most notable events of
the Easter period was the appearance
of Miss Maggie Bevan, evangelist, of
Wales, in the pulpit of Mt. Zion Welsh
Baptist Church— an edifice entirely
too limited in seating capacity for the
crowds who sought admission.
The Journal was kindly provided
with “a front seat” Wednesday even
ing. The hour of service was osten
sibly I'/i o’clock, but the house was
well filled 15 minutes earlier and a
band of hustlers were at their wit’s
end to find space for even standing
room, and finally there were never
more people jammed in the same
Miss Bevan came in, ascended the
pulpit, and apparently studied the audi
ence. There was singing, and a prayer
by her brother—David Bevan, Rev.
E. George, pastor, meanwhile direct
ing the program.
Miss Bevan read a short Scripture
sketch, announced her text, and with
the utmost self-possession began
elaborating the lesson. The Journal
could not catch or follow the drift of
her sermon, but it seemed to be an in
junction emphasizing the vital im
portance of religious culture of the
young—“beginning at the beginning. ”
She was fluent—never at loss for the
right word extemporaneously elo
quent and earnest throughout. In
deed, the discourse was-a masterpiece
of logical appeal to parents and
church tutors to do their duty at once
and continuously. With ringing voice
and gesture suitably pronounced, she
sent the truth into ear and heart with
all her might.
When all was over it took a long
time to get out, the people seemingly
loath to leave.
The five sermons delivered here will
be remembered a long time in Mt.

To End Log Rafts.
Columbia rivermen believe that the
recent disasters overtaking a number
of the ocean-going log rafts which were
being sent from the river to California
have been the means of sounding the
doom of this method of shipping lum
ber down the coast. In support of
this conclusion it is pointed out that
the steamer Carlos, on her last trip
took out a deckload of piling from
Stella. Heretofore the great bulk of
the piling from that point has been
shipped to California in the form of
rafts. —Shipping Illustrated

In the Sunday school teacher’s ex
perience the only kind of a dentist
she had ever known was a man who
pulled or repaired teeth, so when the
nice little girl in her class said her
father was a dentist the teacher con
cluded to patronize him. She knew his
address and, called one ' day with
nerves braced for treatment of an un
sound tooth She was shown into a
small workshop, whose sides were
lined with big grandfather clocks.
“Dentist?” the man exclaimed
"Great Scott, no; I’m a clock mender
but 1 know how the kid came to make
the mistake. People in this trade al
ways call the fellow 7 who makes a spe
cialty of tinkering with grandfather
clocks a dentist The wheels of most
grandfather clocks of American man
ufacture are made of wood, and when
the clock stops the wornout teeth
have to be removed from the wheel
and sound teeth put in. So I really
do work with teeth and deserve the
name of dentist "
