When it was learned that the school building was on fire, every par ent who had a child there Was ‘ wrought up to the highest pitch and no fire alarm ever caused greater excitement The hose ! were soon at play on the fire and but little damage wa3 done. It was first thought that the fire originated from some defect in ’ the heating system but this was a mistake, the fire caught eyi ; dently from a spark that fell in a bird’s nest or leaves that had accumulated in the guttering. This was evident from the fact that only the roof of the building was burned. In most of the rooms the childaen behaved nicely, but as is usual in such eases some of them lost their hpnr?<i --- The Holy City One of the most striking char acteristics of Jeruralem is its di versity of religious opinions. Many sects of Judaism and Mo hammedanism flourish there, and the most surprising varieties of Christianity are to be found within its walls. Dogmas about which the western churches are so thoroughly in accord that their existence is well nigh for gotten, take on new life in Je rusalem, as the bases of flourish ing schisms. There are the Sy rians or Jacobites, the Copts, and the Georgians who are at odds with the west regarding the di vine and human nature of Christ; the Greeks, of whom there are six or seven varieties, and the Russians, who, with all easterns, reject the doctrine of the Armen ians, who have seperated for no demonstrable heresy, but merely on account of their not having been represented at the council of Chalcedon, the Abyssianians, who adulerate their Christianity with strange barbaric and Jewish customs; the Malabar Christians from India, who claim to have been the disciples of St. Thomas. There are also offshoots .from 00. John Wallace—Carrying con cealed weapons, fine $75.00 and 30 days in jail. Nat Polk—Shooting gun in corporation, fine $5.00. Bob Borum—Failing to work the streets, fine $6.00. Bob Borum—Vagrancy, 30 days in jail. All cases carried the payment of the costs. - -. m—■■ ------- NOTICE Tupelo, Miss,, March 15. Headquarters Jno.

Such a religious medley as this makes a fruitful field for cranks and crochets, which flourish in Jerusalem like the green bay tree. As Miss Good' rich-Freere says in her book on the holy city, “Jerusalem is filled with persons whose relatives wish them in Jerico.” Most of these individuals pursue their eccentric way alone, but some have succeeded in founding con gregations. The most prominent of these bodies is “the American colony” populary known as “The Over comers,” “This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” They were founded by a Mrs. Spafford, an American woman, who, on her way to Eu rope for the education of her children, saw her whole family drowned before her eyes. She (tahlpH thf» nat-hoH^ •noccq rrn fn I her husband ‘.‘Saved alone,” and retnrned to America. Being a woman of senstive nature and an intensely religious tempera ment, the tragedy could not help i making a deep impression upon her. She became convinced that her life had been spared becouse God had some work for her to do, and from that time on she, to gether with her husband and ! some friends, devoted her life to i the poor of Chicago. After a i while she came to the conclusion 1 that more was sequired of her, ! with the result that in 1881 the , whole party went to Jerusalem t and\ founded an organization 1 which might be called theocratic * communism. The community l grew and flourished and now has c control of of some important ( Moslem charities. Its principal c doctrine seems to be that all de- t sire shouid be eradicated and t while there is no harm in doing any especial thing it is a sin to " desire it. The plan of govern- 1 ment is in obedience to God alone but Mrs. SpaffOrd wields an in fluence that can only be de- i* scribed as hypnotic. — Ex. 1 Woodmen of the World in Ses sion at Columbus The bi-annual meeting of the Head Camp M.
