When 1 1 1 nt cr-murion of the proud Cornelian gens received his latest military assignment, ho may have commiserated tho ill luck that cast hi lot among the offensive unci turbulent Jews. How little Could he diiceru in it tho lea-ding of Providence!

The humility and moral earn estness of this imperial captain is put to the severest test imagin able He is asked to send for u Galileau peasant amid the dis gust ins sights and evil odors of a tanner's house, and such an un canny source obtain instruction concerning his supreme interests. That was a worse ordeal than a Methodist "mourners' bunch." The seeker shows his downright sincerity by not caviling or de laying. Scaiccly is the angel gone before his trusty servants a; o; their way to Joppn. The Galilean stood in as im -Iterative need of preparation for his share iu the transaction as the Romans, Racial and religious prejudices the mod inveterate were to be overcome.

Jle rehearses the fact of gospel history, with which his auditors must pn.b.ibly bo somewhat ac quainted. li is likely we have here hut the faintest outline of a bermon that may have consumed considerable time in its delivery. As Peter, at length, reached the very coro of tho gospel, tho for giveness of sins through tho Ineffable Name, their hearts, all tender and trustful, receive at crace both gift and Giyer.

"He was Cud's best man for the hour." A"ain, tho conspicuous candidate for full uud immediate admission into the Christian church withoi t submission to the Hebrew rite was admirably chosen a man at once openheai ted and opeuhanded; "of good report among all the nation of the Jews;" so much of a Jew and so much of a Gentile as to' form a connecting link, between both people.

As Cornelius and his companions, rncircumcised Gentilos, had re ceived a Pentecostal effusion pre -cisely like that which tho Jewish disciples had received, tho dis tinction of Jew and Gentile was evidently abolished. Henceforth it was undoubtedly the divine will that tlio Gentile should become a Christian without tirst becoming a Jew. So a partition more, im -penetiablo than China's famed wall melted away.

The Hired Man. As I am a hired man and read the Special Fanners' Institute I want lo have the space in the "Aftermath" to take exception to my friend Mr. G. S. Kemp, of Stanlterry, Mo. He says in his part of tho world the farmers have the fashion to denounce trust and combines, but if he knows no more of trust and com bines than he does of the differ enco between a buggy and a car riago he certainly does not know much. He says the hired man. with a few exceptions, is a failure, mostly unfortunates and a class of run-away from homo loys who aro entitled to very little respect from any one. lie certainly ca-ts u slur on ninety nine out of every huudred of tho hired men of our Country, for as a rule they are respectable men. The man that owns the fnrm and house in which I am writing is the owner of 200 acres of land, started sixteen years ago as a hired man and to day is worth HO,K'0. Another man owns 320 acres of as good land as can be found in central Iowa, herds of cattle can be seen in his fields. nnd two carloads of cattle aud hogs in his feed yard, everything he bus being free from debt, with large share in a state bank '.n central Iowa. This man worked ;is a hired man twenty-live years ago. and to day is worth $10,000. I do not call uch men failures. 1 could name scores of others. When you speak of run -away- from-home boy, my mind goes back to history. llunj:unin Frank lin, the philosopher and stales- men, was suc:i a uoy. ins renown was spread over the whole civil ized world ami honors were heaped upon him; he was a ruu-awuy-froin homo boy but he stood before kings. Mr. Kemp says he lias hud hired un'i. go to leep in the lie-Id; maybe ho didn't give them time to sleep at me house, by his article I got the idea that ho begrudged ihvm their presence at the table. He spunks of tho hired mau pulling in at 3 o'clock in the morning, hut failed to state which ho palled iu, a carriage or a cattish. Ho speaks of scouting ttie country for another man; may bo the country needs cleaning. He speaks of the green Irish or Ger man-not knowing much. Now who ever heard of a green Irish man or German? I do not, believe this man could get a noble Irish man or a btalwnrt Germau to work for him at any price, lor I believe they know too much to work for such a m m. J believe 'Agricola'' would just as soon eat at the table with a hired man as with a king. Live Stock Indicator. Who Edits the Progress? Pr; f. ?. H Summers went to Char U'Htou Monday On business.

Smith, died at his homo April 7, aged 18 years, 9 months and 2 days. It is said that death loves a shining mark, a saying which has proven truu in this instance, for "Hilly" was a young man of fine, scholarly attainments and had an ambitious desire to succeed. He never did things by halye-i, but considered anytl.iug worth doing at nil was worth doing well. Honest, upright, truthful, aud with a moral character beyond reproach, he was respected by a! I who knew him. He was a gradu ate of the Oak Kid go high school and had attended the normal part ot two yuars, whore lie won u gold medal iu a declamatory contest. Above ull he loved his home and his life was bound to it by the strongest lies of affection. A dutiful sou and loving brother. who will be sadly missod, has gouo whero paiu and sorrow cease to trouble. The family have tho sympathy of the entire community in their bereavement. Tho remains were laid to rct in the Camp Ground grave yard, after a funeral sfr vice conducted by Rev. Latham A FiUi-.Ni. A hod -carrier was arrested in Omaha the other day for carrying off some kindling wood from the building on whicn he was work ing. lie was put in the hurry up wagon and carried to the police station and there sentenced for the henious crime.
