Hath la an ardent supporter o( Mr. Ham
mond (or the nomination, and he, from
tbe poHition of both, should be well aware
of the ability of Mr. Hammond to till tbe

Tbe excursion Tuesday on tbe R. 0.
Stewart was not as enjoyable as it might
have been, owing to tbe long time out
and the very disagreeable weather out
on the lake, lt was supposed when the
boat left here that Copper Harbor was
tbe object! ye point, and indeed the boat
held that course from the canal two
hours before tbe importunities of a (ew
changed tbe trip as originally advertised
to Isle Royale. The trip is too long a
one (or so slow a boat as the Stewart.
Tbe island was not reached until about
0:30. which allowed but a (ew moments
on shore. Tbe boat arrived at Hancock
at 3:30 a. m., and it was not until C
o'clock that tbe larger part of the party
from Calumet reached home, having
been landed at Lake Linden.

claims that Graham Tope was the first
to announce a closing on the day of the
Batchelor-Benedict base ball game, claim
ing a superiority (or tbe benedicts, of
whom, by the way, he is a very recent
member. Now Mr. Beaban overlooks
tbe face that T. D. Ryan, as soon as the
game was decided upon, announced that
he would not work that day. It is well
known that a recent convert to anything
is always extremely partisan, out Herod's

Max Heinricb entertained a large audi
ence at tbe V. M. C. A. Hall last evening.
Tbe program was a varied one and in

tbe sentiment as well as tbe music re
quired interpretation in which Mr. nein
rich excelled. This evening be will sing
at tbe Armory Opera House with a sub
stantial change of program.

with pneumonia, succeeding lagrlppe.

was Joan Langley then and until the waa
SO, whea she married Charley Fortytb,
and waa sorry for Jter.tnUtake within tbe
year. However, worn ne oiea, aDout tnree
years .later, ahe spoke of him with great
affection. L t could not tell If lt waa genu
ine or prompted, by an. artlatlo deelre to
make her manners match her mourning
I believe lt waa an -inconaclout mixture
ot propriety and gratitude. At any rate,
ahe remained unmarried for aome time,
and lived by heraelf la a pretty little houae
on the oomfurta.blelncome ber huaband
had oot had time to-loae. I waa wrong In
aaylng ahe lived by herself, for a friend, or
ooualn, or some old schoolfellow waa al
ways staying with her.
, Jpaa J a popular and ebecrrul young
woman, and I have alwaya been very fond
of her, but ahe has, or had, one peculiarity
which I could not appreolate. Until ahe
waa a widow It waa In abeyance, but ae
soon as ahe put off her first mourning and
began to go about and see her friends it
developed rapidly. 6he loved 'matchmak
ing. I could never understand why, for
her own experlenoe of marriage had been
most, unhappy. Jf she had been less tweet
tempered X abould have imagined ahe waa
copying tbe fox who, having lost hla own
trail,, tried bo persuade hla; friends to fol
low his example.' Once 1 suggested to hor
that as marriages were made in heaven,
and even then were , not alwaya success
ful, ahe woo Ul be wiser, to leave them to
be dealt with In the usual way.
."You are quite wrong," aba said. "I
don't Jtnow. who' said jthat silly thing
about heaven and marriages. Of course It
was a man, and of course he thought he
was saying something very elever, but he
really wat talking nonsense. 'ow there is

"So you look on a husband as a reward
of virtue, no matter what he la llkef"
i We were sitting In ber drawing room at
ten time. --MUs Ataohln, who was staying
with her, had not come In, so we were en
joying our . tea together. Joan looked so
contented, to oblivious of the past, so de
termined to think well of marriage as an
Institution that I could not help laughing.
i "How horrid you are, Jim I"' ahe aald.
"You're not a bit tyropatbetle. You ought
to be glad to take an Interest Iff any one

Is an exoelleot match.'

X wondered what had been the result of

find out. The maid left me In the hall,
saying she would see If her mistreat would
me. I am ao used to making myself
at home In Joan's house that tbs girl's
formality annoyed me, and, to assert my
old footing, I pushed open the dining
room door, meaning to wait there.
The- room was dim, but I saw two fig-
urea very close together, which disen
tangled themselves when they saw me, and
one gave a little shriek.
Miss Machin," I cried, "I beg your

heard tbe drawing room door slammed,
and a man rushed down stain. It waa
Stamford, looking very crosa.v He did not
see me till I ventured to speak to him;
then he glared, muttered something, seized
his hat and left the house.
I went slowly up stairs and 'Into the

"It was dreadful, Jim. lie thought I

"Was lt a mistake? Do you want him to

"I don't want to drive him away," she
"That it not what I mean," I aald. "Do
you love him after all?"
She hesitated. " That a a horrid thing
to ask," she aald.
' i"Never mind," I said sternly. "If you

she cried. "I've only just found It out,

"You're In a mesa, Joan," aald I.
"Shall I tell him?"
"Not a word!" ahe cried.
Just then X caught eight of a pair of
men's gloves on a chair. "Are those hla
gloves?" X said, pointing to them.
"Oh, yea I" ahe cried, catching tbem up.
"Tbey are a good pair. He will bo aorry
to lose them," I said. "Suppose you write
and tell him they are here and suggest he

"Jim, you're an angel 1" ahe cried.

The average-street beggar It a philoso
pher and student of human nature. His
ability to flatter it his atook In trade. Ev
ery man haa hla little vanities, and the
beggar It quick to perceive them. In one
block on Eleventh street last night an ex.
perienced mendicant, by actual observa
tion, "braced" no less than nine men, and
succeeded la getting "the price of a lodg
ing" from elx of them. He did it simply
by a remarkable rapidity of character
study.' In London a street beggar addresses
everybody as "me lud," but the Phila
delphia beggar is far more advanced in the
science of flattery. Tho one on Eleventh
street last night seemed to be able to tell
at a glance just how to approach his man
to a manner which would mott readily ap
peal to his vanity. A youth who It a
member of an amateur dramatlo company
and delights In nothing so much aa to be
taken for a professional, and who apea tbe
manners and appearance of the experienced
The-plan, fell an easy prey.
' "Pardon roe, sir," remarked the beggar,
"but I aee you are an actor. " The game
worked. Another stripling scarcely out
of hit teem, but with decidedly worldly
proclivities, wat addressed at "old sport."
The Y. M. C. A. tale wat unfolded to a
man with a white tie, and ao It went
through the entire category. Finally the
beggar approached . an Individual who
might hare been anything under the aun.
He hesitated alightly before sizing up hla
victim and wat about to make a venture,
when a companion, who waa evidently
working the game with him, came up and
remarked, "Come off, cull; dat'sa noos

ourselves from men, but to enter into
the buiy -rones til tu "iety, to partuke of
the toils and help solve the problems and
lift the bunion. Hut we are not to be
entangled in worldly finares of false
pleasure, deceitful riches and honors.
He that will live godly will find him
self often opposed to the world and op

We live by faith in the Unseen One
and in obedience to principles unknown
to the world. If it did not know and
reverence the Master, what wonder if it
does not call us great? Our comfort it
not to be found in the applause of men.
Oar encouragement comes not from

whom we serve. His promises and pres

- On to ToronUK
The third international Leagao con
vention is to be held next year at To
ronto. It will' without doubt be the
largest gathering of Methodists ever as
sembled in the world. All branches of
Methodism will be invited. The Meth
odist Episcopal, the Church South and
Canadian Methodist will be the three
largest bodies. In each of these the
League has already become a power of
great spiritual value. The Cleveland
and ChattanfHga conventions were great
asHemblies, but Toronto bids fair to sur
pass them both. The city itself is one
of the most thoroughly Chrhitian to be
found on the globe. Its hospitality is
proverbial. Tho aggressive power of the
League haa been demonstrated by its
wonderful growth in seven years from
nothing to a million and a half mem
bers in our own branch alone.
As many leaguers aa can should plan
to go to Toronto next year. Some chap
ters ore already taking collections
monthly and saving tho fund to send a
delegate to the convention. This is a
good plan. It will be a lifelong benefit
to multitudes of our young people to
participate in such a series of meetings.
Many expressions used in the Bible do
not convey the full force of their mean
ing to those unacquainted with thehon
ors given to royalty and high rank in a
monarchy. An American who watched
the procession going to Whippingham
church, Isle of Wight, on the occasion
of the marriage of Beatrice, the favorite
daughter of Queen Victoria, was sur
prised to see the brido seated with her
back to the horses while the queen oc
cupied the back seat of the carriage
alone, though there was ample room on
it for both. An Englishman, to whom
he expressed his surprise, was equally
astonished at the American's ignorance
of regal etiquette and explained the cose.
' 'Kb one, not even her favorite daugh
ter, may sit on the same seat with our
queen." How different with the King

Bow to Realat Temptation.
It is useless to expect to escape falling
into temptations. The only escapo possi
bio is from falling by them. Argument
Is of small value when you come to close
quarters with passions, inclinations and
appetites. Good resolutions are like
walls of ice to keep out the fires of de
sire. They melt away at tho touch of
the tempter. "Thus saith the Lord
and "it is written thou shalt not" are
tho adamantine barriers which no power
of evil can melt or overleap or under
mine if they be firmly settled on the
bed rock of character or hard pan of
Christ in all His temptations shelter
ed Himself behind theso defenses.
Know what God has said. Learn
where His ramparts and ditches of com'
mand are run and then find safety be
hind them. "Thus saith the Lord" will
defeat satan every time when all argu
ment would utterly fail.
Not human reason, but God's wisdom
is needed to foil the tempter's power.

It is not tho money a man has, but
what he is, that is of importance. Not
the weight of a man s body, but the
size of his soul, counts in the world of
personality. Character is first and con
dition ftecondary. Character can make
conditions alter, can rise above condi
tiona, can attain to contentment and
soul liberty in any and all condition
No man is self made. God gives capac
itr and man builds character. No
man can dream himself into goodness.
