The reasons of our failures cannot be traced to chance. Cod never shuts us Into emptiness, and every failure made if honestly made has its cmuensatioii.

We are easily made blind to our highest mercies, but they will have a rare luster when once we find them. Von Weber's charming "Hunter's Cho rus," with Its lively measures, was next ticanliful!) rendered b) the school chorus. A striking paper was that presented by Miss Alice Alexander 011 "Truth Seeking." Our actions are truth when they conform to our words and thoughts. If each one would think twice before speaking, truth would not so often be violated. Truth seeking brings one into a sphere which does not allow one to be erratic or arbi trary He who seeks after truth coin men. Is himself, well to his fellow man. That which costs 110 great labor is the most highly prized, hence truth Is thechieriie longing of man. Miss Alexander was at tired iu lavender satin and wore a corsage boquet or white lillies.

Her cos tume was a handsome xvhite cashmere trimmed with pearl passamenterie, and her ornaments were natural flowers and dia monds. With what reverence do we tread over those sacred plats where lie those peo ple who. once active like ourselves, have long since passed into decay. Everywhere do those silent cities greet our approach, and give us glimpses of uast vrandure which cause us to stop in deep reflection fin these great cities once abode the must dUtlnguIstied men in art and letters which the world has ever known.

There Is something or a sensation in the southwest part of the city which has been carefully suppressed from the public, but of which the Hum bi.ic has come Into iiossession. it Is another of the many casts of abandonment of a baby on a dooi- tep.

Wednesday morning when Tritsch went to open up his place he found upon tlie door-step a neat UtUe basket, w Inch w hen opened was found to contain a lively boy baby of apparently several weeks growth. The boy was neatly dressed, and had an air of early juvenile prosperity about him. No note or other message ac coiupanied the infant, and its origin or the motives which impelled Its mother to tbandon it are likely to remain a mystery unless the ii'nal .solution that it was a child of sin and the mother was desirous of hiding her sin, be applied to the situation. The boy is such a fine-looking lively little fellow that Mr. and Mrs Tritsch,who have no male offspring of their own, have determined to adopt him into their family. ami it is understood, have already taken the necessary steps to that end.

From the time the Cadet band, which furnished some ex cellent music, both in selections and quick steps, began their part of the programme until 1 1 o'clock the crowd seemed to be contented to remain and partake of the re freshments of ice cream, strawberries, cake, etc., and to enjov the sociability generally afforded on such occasions, and Olive Branch is never found lacking in this direc tion.
