The Twentieth Century National Gcepel J Campaign has received considerable Im petus In Hudson County under the careful guidance of an executive committee, of j which the Rev. Cornelius Brett, D. D., of the Bergen Reformed Church, is chair man. This movement is not confined to the United States. The projector, Mr. AVIlliam P. Hall, has been in Canada, or ganising branches for the pursuance of the work. The Hudson County branch will enter upon ite first real duties on the evening of February 26, in the Bergen Reformed Church. A mass meeting will be held on that date. Dr. Brett will preside. The ! Executive Committee will meet in the course of a few days to perfect numerous plans under which the work will be car ried out. This committee does not desire to make public any details of the work at present, as this may lead to some misun derstanding. On the Executive Committee are these pastors and laymen;—Dr. Brett, chair man; the Rev. F. S. Cookman, Centenary Methodist, secretary; the Rev'. W. S. Swaflield. Summit Avenue Baptist; the Rev. H. C. Cronin, Second Presbyterian; j the Rev. Mr. Parker, Second United Pres- ! toyterian; the Rev. Eugene E. Neudewitz, Holy Trinity Lutheran; the Rev. T. W. ( Gowan, Grove Reformed; Union Hill; Mr. George Corrigan, representing the busi- j nees men; Secretary Meacham, of the Y. j M. C. A.; Secretary Frank, of the Hudson City branch of the Y. M. C. A.; Mr. James V. Foster, President Sunday School Sup erintendents’ Association; President Geo. Eincke, of the County Epworth League; President Arthur E. Farrier, of the Hud eon County Christian Endeavor Union, and the Rev. R. Meade, of West Hoboken. Other sections will also be represented , on this committee, for instance Lafayette and Greenville. Those mentioned above expressed a willingness to participate in the movement and endeavor to bring about the desired results. Invitations have been sent out for the mass meeting and a large attendance is anticipated. These are particularly requested to be present:— Pastors of Hudson County, presidents of Epworth Leagues and Christian Endeavor Societies, Sunday school superintendents and other kindred religious organiza tions. The programme for the evening is indefinite, but it Is known that only Hud son County pastors will speak. The pur pose of the Gospel campaign is to start the work agoing in every church. Every pastor will be requested to fol low the plans laid down and to be adopt ed at the mass meeting. In this manner it is expected that double the good work can be accomplished. Thomas P. Hall, the organizer and chairman of the Central Committee, was tn Jersey City a few weeks ago and he talked about his work. He said that he conceived the idea of a national religious campaign three years ago, but did not have the pluck to make public his plans. He finally broached the Idea to prominent <men and it was received with a feeling of interest. This prompted him to go further. He began organizing in the various cities and today he has gathered about him an array of committeemen, many of w hom are men of national repu tation. Mr. Hall has spent what the average layman would consider a fortune on the movement up to the present. Every member of the Central Committee is devoting time to the work with excellent results. Each branch is allowed to choose its own form of religious work. These branches receive their encouragement Irom the Central Committee. The local branch is entering the movement with much spirit and the members hope to ac complish the best of results. CHRIST HOSPITAL ANNIVERSARY.

They are all included in Father Meehan's invitation to partake of the hospltality of All Saints' parish. There will be good music and dancing each evening, as well as refreshments without stint, and all this without one penny of expense to the par ticipants, a piece of generosity character istic of Rev.

A long and narrow cliff unites the Cha teau des Salles with the hilly moor of Kerhor and protects the marshy meadows of Plonbazlanec from the encroachment of the sea, while dashing to pieces against this embankment, whose stones, heaped up without order, roll under their feet, the waves make a noise resembling lam entations. How many times as a child have I con ducted by the hand for the length of that perilous cliff the old blind beggar woman, Yvonan Gailec, the best story teller in all the cantou of Paimpol. As a reward for my kind actions the poor creature in her ! turn took my hand in hers, made me sit upon the grass by her side and told me the most beautiful tales, and the most frightful narratives were those which in terested me most. A surprising fact, the child, naturally so timid, loves the stories which make it the most afraid, and his delicate and impressionable imagination delights in wandering in fictitious worlds, inhabited by the most unsightly and the most malicious mousters. But no story interested me so much as that of the “Adventure of Lochic Zoz.” I have heard it so often that perhaps I shall be able to give it in my turn. Lochic Zoz worked from morning to evening ip a quarry adjoining the moor of Keshor. The poor wretch was dependent upon the famous Marquis of Kersat, an evil man, whom all the old people of the city of Plonbazlanec still remember. He dwelt with his wife and three little i children in a sort of hut situated to the right of the spot where today rises the Chateau des Salles. At the close of the year 1788 and at the ! hour when daylight bad just vanished Lochic met with a strange adventure while repairing from the moor to his cot- : tage. Contrary to his custom, he had taken, in order to curtail his journey, the diffi cult and little frequented path which traverses the marshes. What remains today of those mournful spots gives, it appears, but a feeble idea of what they were at the period when ! this story took place. WThat an immeuse stretch of black mire it is described to be. wbeuce emanated suffocating odors and which here and I there were concealed by tufts of iris and rushes, filled with disquieting noises. Worn by his daily toil, Lochic walked with head drooping under the weight of a heavy bifndle of furze. The moon already bathed the meadow i laud and the stran.d with a light so gentle i and so blue that the timid elves left their shadowy abodes to flutter gayly in the calm air. Not a breeze. One could scarcely hear the plaintive monotone of the waves upon the pebbles which, bordered the swamps on the side of the sea. Suddenly a sharp hiss issued from a tuft of iris, and almost immediately a gray snake raised itself upon the tip of its tail before Loehic. Then in a sorrow- j ful voice it said: “Lochic Zoz, I know that your soul is compassionate, so I address myself to you in order that yon may take pity on my unhappy lot.” “But who are you to speak thus?” in terrupted Lochic. whose voice trembled. “Reassure yourself.” replied the ser pent. “I do not wish you any evil. Deign only to listen to me an instant.” “Speak.” said Lochic. astonished, but already almost trauquiiized by the gentle voice of the gray snake. And the snake spoke as follows, while Lochic, seated upon his bundle of furze, listened with gaping month: In former times, a long while ago, at the spot where we now are, stood a castle whose turrets lost themselves in the clouds and projected upon the fields and upon the sea a shadow as dense as night. In this castle lived a wicked princess whose name no one knew. Her mind, continually tormeDted by cruel thoughts, Invented every day new tortures for her vassals. More hideous than demons were those who surrounded her, and they sec onded her in her evil deeds. This narrative would be without end if I were to recount all the crimes of that malicious princess. However, the hour of her punishment sounded. One even ing the wardens of the castle saw ap proaching the drawbridge a cavalier clad in armor whiter than 6now. Above his helmet, whose'visor was lowered, spar kled a brilliant crest. “Stop!” cried the guards to the stran ger. But without uttering a word he de scended from his horse, raised his finger toward heaven and immediately fell dead. Then he rapidly cleared the bridge, pene trated into the castle, which resounded with frightful neisos, and. baring climbed the great stone staircase, turned toward the banquet hall, where the princess and her companions of dissipation sat gather ed together. All those who attempted to arrest him fell, dumfoended. The doors of the hall opened of their own accord before him, and, his arms crossed upon his breast, he advanced si lently toward the princess. Divining some great peril, she wished to flee, but her feet seemed fastened to the stones of the floor. She wanted to appeal for help, but terror bound her throat. “Follow me.” said the stranger. As if impelled by an invisible force, she followed him up the winding stairways without nnmber of the castle. They did not pause until they had reached the top of the loftiest turret. Day was just about to dawn. The horizon was illuminated with a long white gleam. The stars rapidly vanished and some rare birds of night flew about striking the corners of the battlements In the castle was the silence of death. “This habitation is cursed,” said th, stranger in a solemn voice. “In a few moments it will sink into the depths of the earth. Before the sun shall aRpear all those who dwell in it shall be con verted into reptiles. Yon yourself shall be transformed into a snake, and in that vile form you shall live miserable until the end of all time, at least unless you meet with u man brave enough and com passionate enough to allow you to sleep three nights in succession curled about his body. That man you perhaps will I discover soule day, but that will not be i until utter mr.ny tone yenfSof sutTering, and if his courage disappears before tbe oud of the proof to which I will permit you to put him in order to recover your original form you will see every hope of deliverance vanish forever.” Having pronounced these words, the white chevalier sprang from the summit of the tower and disappeared. The prin cess, left alone, at first believed herself the victim of some painful dream. But her illusion was of short duration, for the castle began to quiver. She thought she was lost and fell lifeless, uttering a loud scream. The accursed castle, however, shaken to its foundatious, sank rapidly. Soon, with its lofty turrets, it entirely disap peared into the gulf, which opened be neath it and which abruptly closed again, permitting nothing to be seen upon its surface save a marshy plain where hideous reptiles writhed. On coming to herself the princess realized the full extent of her misfortune because her original shape had vanished, and, changed into a serpent, she crawled in the fetid mirb. “It is she whom you now have before you, Loehic Zoz, and in order that you may come to her aid she has not hesitat ed to relate her history.” “What must be done?” said Loehic, who had in the most profound silence listen ed to the recital of the snake. “Have I not told it? For three con secutive nights you shall submit to let me sleep enveloped about your body. Yes terday, as I was seeking my miserable nourishment, I saw perched near me, upon the yellow of flower of an iris, a little dragon fly, with velvety wings of dark blue, and whose eyes shone like two diamonds. I was about to make it my prey when it murmured these words: “ ‘Loehic Zoz will perhaps consent to let himself be touched by the narration of your misfortunes?’ Then she opened her wings of azure and flew toward the heavens.” “Be reassured,” responded Loehic, mov ed with pity even to tears, “in three nights you will be free.” And, having lain'down, he invited the snake to wrap herself about him, On the morrow at break of day he re turned to his cot. Although defiled with the ntire and ehiiled by the night air, Loehic was happy. After taking some nourishment he proceeded to the moor of Keshor. When night came, he directed his steps toward the swamp. “Ho, there, princess!” he cried. “It is I!” At the same instant the rushes shud dered, ami an enormous serpent made to ward I.ochic, giving forth frightful hisses. “I am lost.” thought the unhappy man. And he expected to swoon away. Nevertheless he laid himself down, more dead than alive, while the monster rolled itself about him. “In two nights,” said the serpent. “I 6hall be free and will overwhelm yon with gratitude.” That was all that Lochie could hear, | for his terror was so great that he had fainted. W hen hev recovered his senses, the sun : has already high. The serpent had dis appeared. Feeling too weak to gain his cottage, with difficulty he dragged him self as far as the moor. Vainly did he attempt to work. Eis hands were without strength, and every instant he imagined a huge serpent was strangling him. These prolonged terrors agitated his body, and he fell exhausted to the ground. Marshaling the strength that remained to him. when night came he walked to ward the marsh with hasty steps. Then he paused, all out of breath, and called j the princess. Loehic.” said a voice, while his throat I rattled with fear. He remained standing in the night. “1 am going to appear before i you in a horrible form. It is the white i chevalier who orders it.” The voice died array, and Loehic, from 1 whom these words took a part of his courage, prepared himself to undergo the last and terrible proof upon which de pended the liberty of the unhappy prin cess. But what horror was soon his! The marshes were changed into a lake of blood, above which flew, clumsily and without noise, large black birds in strange shapes. In the red waves mon strous serpents without number sought to devour each other. Lcehic’a terror swept away his courage when he saw advancing toward him a monster, half woman, half dragon, whose hands, armed with long talons, already Sought to seize him. “St. Anne, have pity on me!” cried Locbic. Ard without turning his head he fled, running toward his cottage. Scarcely had he entered when c violent fever seized him. He died a few days j later, hut not without having recounted his terrible adventure to his little neigh bor, Yvonan Gallec. The old blind beggar invariably ended her story as follows: “Until the end of the world the wicked princess will live under the form cf a snake, and these are her cries of despair, which the waves of the sea repeat when they moan at the foot of the cliff of Ploa* bazlanec.”—Chicago Tribune. Racuta Leaks After the Pence, A banished Siberian prisoner, who was ordered to move from one district to an other and allowed 2 shillings for his expenses on the journey, to be paid to him in installments at certain specified villages through which he passed, had his last installment of 2%d. handed to him at his last stopping station, and his identity book being pretty well filled up the clerk entered the payment in very small characters at the foot of the cover. On arriving at his place of destination, says a St. Petersburg correspondent, the prisoner handed in his book, and the en try of the laBt payment having been over looked a voluminous correspondence be tween the various authorities ensued and special messengers were employed. The mayor of Ilimsk at last discovered the entry. He Felt the Same Way. Mrs. Henpeque—They say when a tiger has its prey in its power the victim feels neither fear nor pain, only a dreamy ecstasy. Mr. Henpeque—I don’t doubt it. The night you accepted me I felt the same way.—Judge.
