Every one is pleased over the settlement of the difficulty between the railroads and the employes.

Kansas City Times: He Is here again—the first house fly of the season. He came sailing and buzzing in today with as much assurance as if his win ter vacation had not lasted more than forty-tfght hours. Now, where has the house fly been in all of the peace ful weeks and months since he blessed your nerves with a cessation of his pestiferous attentions? He didn't perish or vanish from the earth, for you can easily tell that he is familiar with every spot that lie touches. He is full grown and full fledged. He was not produced yesterday. No stranger could possibly make himself so much at home as your house fiy visitor does today as he disports himself with ethereal ala crity throughout your vicinage. "The wind bloweth where it listeth and thou hearest the sound thereof, but thou canst not tell whenc§ it cometh or whither it goeth." So it is 'with the house fly. We know when he is gone, but nobody has ever uncovered the mystery of his retreat we know that he will return, and we know when he does return, but it Is not given to even the angels in heaven to know where he bestows himself between the period ojC his subsistence and his recrudesr cence? Tile Marrying Squire. Benjamin T. Nixon of Jeffersonvllle, fnd., Is known as the "marrying squire," for the very good reason that he has united in matrimony no fewer than 2,332 couples. A reporter the other day asked this authority for his views on marriage. Mr. Nixon said: "When marriage is a failure the fault nearly always lies at the husband's door. The man lets romance die. He forgets." Mr. Nixon mused a while. "It is like this," he said. "A man of middle age and a youth of poetical appear ance sat side by side in the smoking car of a nearly empty train. In the solitude the youth took a photograph from his pocket, looked at it and then said to his companion feverishly: 'Were you ever in love?' "The man of middle age started. He laughed. 'Was I ever In love?' he re peated, as he relighted his pipe. 'Was I ever in love? Well, I don't knbw if—' 'You don't know,' cried the youth. 'Well, if you ever had been in love you'd know it. Why, when you're in love your life is a sweet dream. You have no taste for food, you think of nothing but the beauty of—' 'Were you ever married sft&pped the middle-aged man. ,v ."

Ttiis is a (juestlon which is to be determined at an open meeting which will be held In the lodge rooms of Fargo council No. 65, U. C. T., tonight. While, of course, the recommendation which one of the candidates will re ceive will not by any means insure his selection for the position, It is certain that It will have not a little weight in Influencing the appointment. The Idea of the open meeting ,for free discussion of the subject is to give all grip carriers a chance to ex press their views as to who is the man best fitted for the position. Already there are nine candidates known to be in the field, and it Is believed that several more names may be suggested shortly. Those who have so far expressed themselvca as. "wlllin'" are: Alexander Anderson, Fargo. George Denis. Fargo. George McKinney, Fargo. Robert Mclntyre, FargO. W. D. Austin, Fargo. C. S. Ratinger, Crook ston. Frank Beals, JamestoWfi. J. H. Trotter, Grand Forks. H. W. Nunn. Grand Forks. Almost without exception the candi dates are well qualified for the posi tion both by experience and tempera ment, and it will probably be some what difficult for the local traveling men to decide which one. to endorse, especially when all are hustling hard introduced in fGr j0) and many of them are re- M^«lt, ana. 4»ttery on the editor or pro-fcouncU pense of conducting a daily paper different candidates for the until they finance the payrolls and the positions of hotel inspector in this deficiency for a few years.

"At 9 o'clock the council will go into regular session and take up busi ness matters pertaining to the order. Several Q^didates arc expected to be 9P hand,*,'.. Several copies of the Thirteenth Annual, Issued by the grand council of the® U. C. T. for Minnesota, the Pakotas, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, and containing the account of the proceedings of the thirteenth an nual session of the council, held at Albert Lea, Minn., June 8 and 9, 1906, have been received by Secretary Dunne. While it is a little late in coming out, the pamphlet is hand somely gotten up and contains much Information regarding U. C. T. doings which will be of gi'eat interest to the travelers. It Is also nicely Illustrated with the physiognomies of a number of prominent knights of the "grip. The report shows that the grand council had a membership last June of 4,900, and that $40,000 had been paid for in demnity assessments, an average of about $8 a year for each member. An interesting feature of the busi ness meeting of Fargo council No. 65 which will be held at the close of the travelers' open meeting this evening will be the annual report of Secretaary Thomas E. Dunne. The report will show that the local council is in a very prosperous condition, both as re gards its membership and financially. There are now 207 grip carriers be longing to the council, twenty-three members have been initiated during the year and seven transfer cards have been accepted. For benevolence and relief the amount of $2,388 has been expended out of the funds of the local council, while for charitable relief purposes $215 has been expended. N. J. Little, the popular representa tive of the Meredith Drug Co., left tonight for Wheeling, W. Va., where he will be married on April 10, at St Luke's Episcopal church, to Miss Anna Sage, one of the most popular young ladies of .that city. After enjoying a two weeks' honeymoon, the young couple will return to Fargo where they will make their home. Joe's friends have been congratulating him and are preparing to extend the glad hand to himself and bride when they reach here. Secretary Dunne ha# been notified that six candidates will apply for ad mission to the council at the coming meeting. At the same time jt is ex pected the winner of the Mackey cup will be announced. C. F. Leonard, who formerly repre sented the Smith Manufacturing Co. of Chicago, has transferred his alle giance to the Janesville Manufactur ing Co., and is spending Some time at the factory of the latter company at Springfield, O., getting pointers on the new line of goods about which he will have to talk in the future. P. O. Hellstrom is having? consider able trouble with illness in his house hold and is thinking of establishing a private hospital of his own.

The serenade was. given by the combined chorus choirs of four Baptist churches. The tears streamed from the sightless eyes as he listened to the familiar strains by which he in his prime had impelled multitudes to the mercy seat. Among the songs were, God Will Take Care of You, When the Mists Have Rolled Away, Under His Wings, and No Shadows There. Among the plans for the unity of the churches, the progress toward the consolidation of the Congregationalists, United Brethren and Methodist, Pro testants holds a prominent place. At the meeting of the .denominations at Chicago, through carefully chosen representatives, a ereedal basis was agreed upon, and difficult problems of church polity were brought to a satis factory .settlement. The delegates of tlie Methodist Protestant church from tiivo southern states withdrew on the ground 'of dlsatlsfatltion with the creed, -bUt aside from this there was an admirable spirit of unity. Follow ing this meeting the plan of union will be referred to three denominations at the general meeting of each, and in event of ratification nothing will be in the way of the consolidation. Thd new denomination will be known as The United Churches, with the orig inal name of each denomination ap pended. The significant feature of this union movement is the difference of the three contracting parties. They come together, not because they like one another, but because they are unlike. Each iinds in the others elements of christian life and faith needed to com plete itself. The Congregationalists especially represent christian intelli gence. Throughout* New England this is the dominant Protfestant body, and west of New England it is strong where the New England traditions art continued and the Ntjw England influ ence prevails. This denomination is especially prominent in the field of fre liglous education. The special danger of Congregationalism is that it piay become jelUsioft pfr the h^ad rather than of the heart. The other two denominations are largely made up of the plain people, and they are notori ously lacking In this world's goods.
