Lidden had just arrived from Bel field. He was filled with confusion after getting off the train and was un decided just what to do first. He stood around the station trying to col lect his thoughts and to decide what point of interest should first claim his attention in Minneapolis. He had nev er been in the city before and it was hard to decide. He was debating deep ly with himself, when his reveries were brusquely interrupted by a gruff voice. "Has your money been Inspected yftt?" asked the intruder. "Why, no," said Lidden. "Is that ne cessary in Minneapolis? It was never clone in Belfleld." "Well, this isn't Belfield. I'm a gov ernment inspector; let me look at your money. I've a hunch that you are try ing to bring some bogus coin into town," said the officious one. "Pro duce your coin," and he exhibited a large, awe-inspiring badge. Anxious to comply with the spirit as well as the letter of the laws of his country, Lidden hastily drew out $T0 in bills and handed the roll to the Et ranger. "This stuff doesn't look very good to me," snorted the man with the badge, "and I think it's about ten years in Stillwater for you." "I got it all in North Dakota and it must be good," said Lidden. "Well, I'm going to take it right over to my office," said the self-appointed officer, placing the money in his poc ket, "and you stay right here until I get back. If this money is phony it won't do you any good to try to get away, because we'll follow you and get you," and the man turned on his heel and went out. Lidden waited. He waited about two hours. Finally Detective Thomas Rus sell thinking there was something wrong, went over to Lidden and got the whole story. "Well," Russell choked, "let's go up to headquarters," That was all he could say.

There are two Kinds of temptation, one that draws downward and the other that draws upward, and I tell you it is easier to be a good man than it is to be a bad one. "I never went to many theaters iu my life. I naturally am dramatic, for I like to see things represented. The class of people that regularly attends 'he theater I find to be careless and oscillating. We are living in an age of entertainment, and that is a dan gerous condition. You even have de manded that the pulpit be entertain ing. I hope the time will conic, though, when the stage can be made to wield the influence for which I be lie', e it can be used. "There is no uanger in dauciag if you dance like a little lamb. But if a man were to to down the streec in the position he occupies with a woman in the dance hall he would be arrested and would be forced to answer to the police. Besides, there is the sad story tbat conies to us from the immoral standpoint. I regret, very much that the dance grows out of the high s-chool as it does. There are no two standards of Christianity.
