A Great Crowd Out to See the Dominican Corner Stone Laid. Archbishop Ireland Delivers the Sermon—Several Other Sermons. Blethen Has Evidently Given Up the Idea of Starting a Democratic Paper. Gleason's Great Success as a Horse Trainer—The News Round-Up. CORNER STONE LAID. Archbishop Ireland Officiates at the Dominican. In spite of the disagreeable weather yesterday afternoon the corner stone of the new Dominican church, on the cor ner of Twenty-fourth street and Eigh teenth avenue south, was laid success fully in the presence of several thousand people. The hour for the ceremony was set at 4 o'clock, but long before that time the building and the adjacent grounds were covered with people, all anxious to witness the im pressive ceremony. Every housetop in the vicinity was covered with people, and the streets were blocked with car- nages. me various Catholic societies of Minneapolis assem bled at Windom hall. on Washington ave nue, promptly at V, o'clock, and t h cl c formed in line, with Plummer Post Drum corps in the lead. The grand marshals were J .P.Fitzgerald, .lamer Sweeney and M. Bei ry. These gentlemen wore the handsome regalia of the A. O. 11., and presented a handsome appearance. The procession, about 2,500 strong, started down Wash ington avenue a few minutes after 3 o'clock, the American flag waving in the breeze side by side with the Irish flag. Twenty-fourth street was reached at about 4 o'clock, and after with diffi culty forcing a passage through the dense crowd which surrounded the new structure, the eigthteen societies repre sented in the line marched up on the platform, which is really the lirst floor of the new building. Here the men were formed in a hollow square, the open end being at the southeast corner, where the stone was to be laid. As soon as the societies had been arranged, the small platform just back of the stone was cleared of people, and Archbishop Ireland, Bishop Grace, and the various priests of the city, including the Dominican fathers, filed on, followed by the acolytes of the Holy Rosary church. As the party put in an appearance a deep hush fell upon the assembled multitude, and as Bishop Grace began a prayer hats were taken off and all the people on the platform knelt. At the conclusion of this prayer, Bishop Grace stepped forward, and.tak ing a mason's trowel, made the sign of the cross upon the heavy corner stone. This stone was unornamented, except for a small cross cut on the front of it, facing Twenty-fourth street. The tin box, containing a history of THK rumen, conies of the daily papers and the Catholic papers, the names of those who subscribed to the . building of the church, the names of all the priests in the city, the names of the city officials and the governor of the state, together with a few other articles, were placed in the cavity under where the stone was to rest. Felix Trainor now laid the plaster around the stone. Bishop Grace said a short prayer and slowly the great stone was swung into position. When it rested square and true on the stone beneath and hid from view the box containing the church history, etc:, all on the platform knelt, and the priests chanted the litany of the saints. This. ended the ceremonies. As soon as the chant was concluded Archbishop Ireland, clad in the handsome garment of his office, and accompanied by Bishop Grace and all the priests, ascended to a raised plat form a few yards back, and began his address. The oration was a grand one. and was delivered in a masterly man ner. Had the archbishop's voice not been clear and his delivery good not over 100 could have heard the sermon. The archbishop said: "In creating this temple and laying the corner stone of it the purpose is that within its walls we may adore the Supreme Creator, our Heavenly Father, and render to Him the honor "which is His due. Man is never so great as when lie bows before his Maker in one of His temples, and when he confesses Christianity, and makes a resolve to live a better and a purer life. But one great trouble overshadows us. The great evil of the present day is that man forgets God and religion in his business and loses sight of all things holy in his mad pursuit for gold and earthly honor. Men should ask them selves more often, Whence conies this beautiful world of ours? If they would but open their eyes they would see that God is at the bottom of all things. Kings and princes are given great honor in this world, but kings nor princes can make worlds nor save souls. The man who does not worship God remains A PART of the EARTH Itself, and will never be fitted to enter heaven. God is our first and greatest benefactor, and to him we should ren-' der all homage and honor. The so called savage races who really worship God are far better than the civilized be ings who know nothing except eating, drinking and self-pleasure. In practic ing religion man finds the dignity of his highest hopes realized. Without God above us we are mere creatures of fate, who live but a day and never see heav enly light. Take away Cod and we are like so many wild beasts, preying on one another and giving ourselves up to the lusts of the earth. Men who talk against God and religion are the deadli est enemies of men and society. Take away the church and give such men control of the world, and it would be a chaotic ruin, with darkness ami confu sion everywhere. Lay not up treasures here on earth, for of what use is wealth unless a man uses it in helping others and doing good? Verily, the poorest man in the world "who believes in God stands a better show of going to heaven than does the rich man who lends not a willing ear to the appeals of the poor and wretched. I beseech you all to be religious and to bring up your children in the light of the church. The religion in whose name this corner stone has been laid is an old one, having existed more than I.mki years, and will always exist. The Catholic religion teaches us that all men are equal in the sight of God, therefore cling close to your religion. I am glad to see "new Catholic churches erected, but they are erected to no purpose unless the members of them are made to lead better and purer lives, and fitted to enter the kingdom of heaven." In closing his address the archbishop exorted his hearers to be the best of men and women and to lead pure and holy lives, so that in the end they might inherit the kingdom of heaven. Sing ing by a choir of fity voices, under the leadership of John McLaughlin, closed the services. Many of the societies marched back to Windom hall before disbanding. A TALK OX BRIDGES. The Religious Bridge Seeks to Close the Chasm in Society. At the First Unitarian church yester day morning Rev. H. M. Simmons preached an interesting sermon on "Bridges." He began by tracing the history of them in Minneapolis. He told of the early ford, and of the ferry, which is said to have begun very ob scurely in a canoe managed by a squaw of rather desultory habits, and to have become a regular institution in 1847. He told of the first bridge, built in 1854, and of the great celebration over it, Jan. 23, 1855. On that day the gratitude and en thusiasm of the people found expres sion in a dinner and a dance and more than a dozen eloquent toasts and ad dresses, very * interesting to read now. One orator, "for instance, congratulated the settlers here, because "you have snatched the palm from the hand of St. Paul," and he urged them to let the world know it, and "use this event aright, and give it the proper notor iety;" for it seems that the modesty for which Minneapolis has since become so famous, was already here in germ, and had to be exhorted to tell the country of its merits. One toast was to the bridge itself, which was the first one on ' the whole length of the river and closed with the words: "May it stand as long as the waters of the cataract chant the praises of the great architect." . But alas! only two months I after that orator prayed that the bridge might be as enduring as the river three-fourths of its roadway fell from the cables in a storm one Sunday even ing, and the people had again to get across in any way they could. Trying times those were for the settlers; and the same page in the St. Anthony paper which tells of the fall of the bridge tells also of the St. Paul stage upsetting the day before, and "breaking the legs of one man in two peaces and the ribs of another, cutting the head of a third and injuring others," and the accident is told very tersely without remark, as if that was no more than what people expected when they made the journey to St. Paul. Nor were they much safer at home; and the same page tells how a citizen here had been horse-whipped by another for a "mean business trans action" three times within a week, and the last time so that his life was despaired of, and adds that "numer ous persons" saw it without making any effort to prevent. But the bridge was mended, and the morals also to a certain extent, and the change and the various other bridges that have since been built the preacher went on to trace. But he said this material bridge building is symbolical of a spiritual one, which more concerns the pulpit. The ancient Roman priests were called pontiffs— that is, bridge builders—and after them Christian popes and others have been called pontiffs. The clergy ought all to be true to the old name, and to be bridge builders of a better kind. As the function of a bridge is to unite divided districts in closer rela tion, so the best function of religion is to unite men and sects and nations in closer brotherhood. True religion will seek first of all to bridge the chasms in society and join men of all faiths — Christian, Jews, heretics and heathen — in bonds of peace and love. In il lustration of this universal religion the preacher made various quotations from Pope, whose 200 th birthday is this week and who is worthy of centennial honor. He also showed how a bridge is sym bolic of many other religious truths, as, for instance, of faith. One can not stand below and look upward at our beautiful suspension bridge, traced like lace work against tha sky, with its im mense weight swinging on mere threads of metal, and with its hundreds of walk ers and wagons crossing to and fro so fearlessly, with the river rushing be neath, without feeling that it is as true a symbol of faith as any cathedral or catechism that ever was made. OPPORTUNITY. Rev. C.' F. Thwing Says It is the Measure of Responsibility. Rev. Charles F. Thwing took for the subject of his baccalaureate sermon, de livered before the Minneapolis academy, yesterday: "Opportunity the Means of Responsibility." ; Text— lf I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin, but now they have no cloak for their sin. — John xv : 22* So far as we have the opportunity of shaping our lives, so far we are respon sible for their forms. Our lives are in fluenced by circumstances: but we have the opportunity of making circum stances. If we make these circum stances evil, we are responsible for the sin which results. If the blind man who reads through his fingers adopt work which makes his hands as hard as horn, he is to be blamed for doing what he thus knows must put a cataract on the eye of his hand. If we enter into surroundings and conditions which are bad, we are responsible for the badness which we thus make a part of ourselves. If we remain in surroundings and con ditions which are bad, and see that the door is open leading to surroundings and conditions which are pure, we are responsible for the consequent corrup tion. Our lives are to be shaped by mo tives. They are the moulds which press our lives into some form. They are the locomotives which draw them from the age of ten to the age of seventy. To make these motives high and noble or low and base, we have the opportunity. 1 care not what is your condition; 1 care not what is your past; I care not what are your associations; your motives, you can make them what you will. Yours is the opportunity in the labora tory of your own heart, to transform them into noblest and grandest princi ples, aiming for truth, for duty, lor God; or to transform them into meanest and ignoble principles, based on error, and ease and sin. Here you are master; here you are sole regent; here you are absolute monarch. And, therefore, you are responsible for your motives; and, therefore, you are responsible for your life, so far as it is shaped by motives. The acceptance or the rejection of Christ is a great principle in the shap ing of life. 1 shall not paint before you that the rejection of Christ as a per sonal helper tends to make life barren as the desert, cold as the pole, selfish as death, narrow as it is base, and base as the basest appetites. I shall not paint before you that the acceptance of Christ as a personal helper tends to make life rich as the tropics, generous as the sunshine, broad as the earth, high as the heavens, strong as love. I shall not paint before you the life in which Christ rules as sovereign su preme. 1 might compare it to the sun, for it is warm and strong; but the sun knows its eclipses. 1 might compare it to the stars, for it tells of hope; but the stars fade in the daylight sky. I might compare it to the magnificence of human governments, for it is glorious; but states rise and fall. I will compare it to eternity, for it is eternal. I will com pare it with heaven, for it is heavenly. 1 will compare it— think not the simili tude is irreverant— to God, lor it is God like. To enter into such a life is our oppor tunity. For entering or not entering, we are therefore responsible. There fore, for the shaping of our lives, so far as we can shape them, we are responsi ble. Therefore, opportunity is the measure of responsibility. "If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin, but now they have no cloak for their sin." SHOULD ENLIST. Right Thinking Men Should La bor Together With God. Rev. David James Burrell yesterday, at Westminster church, spoke upon the subject of the "Dispensation of the Spirit," taking his text from John xvi., 7-11: "And when the Holy Ghost is come He shall convince the world of sin of righteousness and of judgment; of sin because they believe not on me, of righteousness because Igo unto the Father, of judgment because the prince of this world is judged." No doubt it was pleasant for the dis ciples to know Jesus in the flesh, but it was "expedient that he should go away ' in order that the dispensation of the Spirit might begin. The work of the Spirit was to consummate the purpose of redemption, to conquer the world and lay it captive at the feet of God. To this end there must be, to begin with, a correction of prevailing ideas as to spiritual things. The spirit reproves the world of sin, i. c., rectifies its conception of sin. We think of sin, ordinarily, as it appears in its outward forms of crime and im morality. But these are merely symp- THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: J-'CK DAY UCLUHNG, MAT 21, 1888. Toms, eruptions. The malady lies deeper. By the Divine Spirit we are taught that sin is aversion to God, and that the head and front of its offending is the rejection of Christ; as is written, "Because they believe not in Me." This is the sum and substance of all in iquity, the one "unpardonable sin." The spirit reproves the world of righteousness. Here again the common opinion— to wit, that righteousness is an outward fair-seeming or morality— utterly at fault. All such righteousness is "filthy rags" in the divine sight. The spirit rectifies this misconception by pointing to Christ glorified, who is "our righteousness." By His death we are justified, and by the imputation of His resplendent goodness we are clothed in white for the review at the great day. The Spirit reproves of 'judgment: not of the final judgment, but of that which is occurring here now. The world is a vast Esdraelon where truth and error, right and wrong, God and satan contend for the master. All men are enlisted on one side or the other. "Multitudes, multitudes in the Valley of Decision." It is God's will that we should know the issue of this controversy. To this end the spirit comes and says, "All's going right:" He bids us pluck up courage because the prince of this world is being overcome. God is might ier than satan. He is binding him with a chain and will ultimately cast him in a bottomless pit. In this dispensation of the spirit all things are working together for good All right-thinking men should be en listed that they may be taborers to gether with God. THE TRIBUNE DEAL. C. M. Palmer to Succeed Blethen — The Latter's Declaration. The formal announcements were made yesterday of the dissolution of the Blethen-Haskell amalgamation in the newspaper business. Mr. Blethen makes his little speech, tells of his loyalty and devotion to Minneapolis and the prin ciples of the Republican party, and withdraws. Manager Haskell then takes up the strain and tells what he is going to do and what he has done, the latter announcing that he has taken in C. M. Palmer, of the Exposition, to fill Mr. Blethen's shoes. Haskell will control the news and editorial department of the thoroughly aggressive Tribune, and Palmer will do the skirmishing on the business end. It had become pretry well known that Mr. Palmer was to go on the paper, but in what actual capacity was a matter of conjecture. The only point of interest in con junction with the affair is Mr. Blethen's positive stand on Republicanism. For some past he has been skirmishing for funds for a morning Democratic daily, and this pronunciamiento looks as though he had given it up. His asso ciation with Democrats and hobnobbing with politicians goes for naught in the face of such a declaration. THE HORSE TAMER. Prof. Gleason Has Great Success "With Vicious Equines. About 1,800 people were present last evening at the Washington rink to wit ness the beginning of Poof. 0. R. Glea son's engagement, which is to continue during the week. He certainly is en titled to the name of "horse tamer," for with the aid of a few simple straps he succeeded in subduing eight or ten vicious brutes in just about as many minutes. The owners of the horses operated upon naturally objected to having their names mentioned, pre sumably because it might spoil a "trade," and the professor good na turedly agreed that he would not exact such a requirement. A brown mare was then brought into the ring. Her owner, who stood next to a Globe re porter, remarked: "If he tames her he's a dandy. She's afraid of any thing and everything. 1 have owned her four years and have never been able to drive her single, and I rather think 1 am something of a horseman myself." In a few minutes the owner or this interesting steed, and the audience as well, were astonished to see her reduced to submission. She kicked, balked and plunged at first,but. after being tripped up a few times and. spoken to in a commanding way, she followed the professor like a dog. "Billy," a horse owned by a well known livery stable keeper on First avenue south, was next taken in hand. He had always refused to work to harness, but after a few minutes of acquaintance with the professor seemed to be actually anxious to do anything wanted of him. A three-year old colt which had never before been hitched up was next introduced. He reared and snorted a few minutes and then was driven around the ring a dozen times in a light driving wagon. Several vicious kickers and runaway steeds were brought out, allowed to kick un til they were tired, and then obeyed the professor's voice as soon as they were taught to comprehend its meaning. The entertainment was not only exerting, but was a refined one, and the several hundred ladies present constituted the most enthusiastic portion of the large audience present. Any tendency to boisterous conduct was instantly checked, and the only individual who manifested a disposition to become ob streperous was promptly ejected. There is no doubt that the rink will be packed to-night, and during the entire engage ment, for that matter. Some twenty horse owners last night offered as many obstinate animals for subjection. GEN. JOHNSON'S MEMORIES. He Makes an Address Upon His War Recollections. The address ot Gen. R. W. Johnson at St. Paul upon "War Memories," at the People's theater yesterday after noon, attracted a rather light audience. The general spoke from manuscript, and his delivery was rather monotonous. He advocated the using of the surplus in the United States treasury for the benefit of the veterans of the war of the rebellion, his remarks being based upon statistics which showed he had made considerable inquiry concerning the subject. He dwelt considerably upon his personal reminiscences of the war, and gave a thrilling account of the bat tle of Murfreesboro. His most happy hit was a sarcastic allusion to the re ported admission of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston to membership in the G. A. R. For a Soldiers' Monument. A large number of old soldiers met at Levi Butler post hall Saturday evening to discuss the plan of having a soldiers' monument erected here. E. W. Morti mer, the chairman, stated that it would cost from $4,000 to §5,000 to place such a monument as was desired in Prospect park. Speeches upon the subject were made by Commander-in-Chief Rea, Depart ment Commander Ege, Mayor Ames, Capt. Snider, Capt. Babb, Rev. Mr. Field, Capt. Hunt and others. All thought that a monument was needed, but some said that in their opinion sev eral small monuments would be better than one large one. The following com mittee was appointed to take charge of the matter: R. Pratt, R. H. Bratton and C. McDonald, from Butler Post, and I. C. Whitney, W. G. Nye and N. Reene, from the North Side Improvement asso ciation. The Only Line That Does It. The only line running complete vesti bule trains, sleeping cars, coaches, din ing cars and baggage cars, between Minneapolis, St. Paul and Chicago is "The Northwestern Line," Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha railway. It was the first line in the Northwest to run Pullman sleeping cars. It was the first line in the Northwest to run dining cars. .It was the first line in the Northwest to run vestibule cars, and, as stated above, "The Northwestern Line" is to day the only line running complete ves tibuled trains between the Twin Cities and Chicago. This line is always in advance of its competitors both as to equipment and train service, and its motto, "Always on Time," is an established fact. Look in Sunday's Globe for real estate bar- THE MINNEAPOLIS MAYOR To Be Launched as a Vice-Presidential Candidate. HE SAYS HE SEEKS NOTHING Bnt His Friends Say They Are Running It and Will Establish Headquarters at St. Louis. Does he mean it? Is Mayor Ames, of Minneapolis, a se rious candidate for the Democratic nom ination for vice president of the United States? r 'i In all of the much that has been writ ten of the possible candidacy of Mayor Ames for the nomination for the second great place within the gift Of the people of the United States, tere has been serious argument on one side and good-humored jest ou the other. So far as known Ames has never said he was or would be a candi date for the office, but his ambition is known to be boundless, and he and his friends have come to look upon him as a lusty child of destiny. When he was elected a delegate to St. Louis a Globe reporter asked his choice for vice presi dent, and he laughingly answered: "For vice president? Why, let me see. Yes; Grover Cleveland, of course. "And who for president?" "Ames." He has always laughed himself when asked about this matter, and others have naturally followed him in a smile, but for all that it is the firm belief in Minneapolis that something is behind it all. It need surprise no one if the gentle doctor blossoms out at St. Louis with a f ullfledeed candidacy, with headquarters and literary bureau complete. In the absence of any positive statement from him the matter might me treated as a joke were it not for the fact that a movement is certainly on foot in Min neapolis and in certain other points about the state working up a boom for him. A Democrat, who is known to be friendly to him, said yesterday: "Never mind what you may hear, but put it down as an absolute certainty that when the proper time comes, Ames will be sprung on the convention at St. Louis. There are certain questions I may not answer, but fire away on any thing you want to know." "Who is doing this?" H "1 will only partially answer that. It is being done by friends of the doctor, who believe he can be nominated, and not only be elected, but assist in the certainty of Cleveland's election." "Where does Ames stand in this?" "He stands about this way. Like every other citizen of the United States, he would like to hold this high office. Who wouldn't But he is doing nothing for it. If things look his way when the time comes, he will enter into an active canvass, of course, and do as other can didates do under the circumstances. Mind, I am saying this on my own re sponsibility, and not with the sanction of Ames or anybody else. lam giving you my own views and knowledge." "Yes; well, what do you mean by Ames' assisting Cleveland?" "1 mean that Ames will insure cer tain states to Cleveland no other pros pective vice-presidential candidate can. I believe Cleveland and Ames can carry Minnesota and Wisconsin and add these to the states Cleveland is already sure of. We mean business in this, and you can treat it any way you've a mind to."- Yesterday evening Dr. Ames was found and was asked, plumply, the" question: "Are you a candidate for the vice-, presidency?" He smiled grimly before answering and then said: "I am a candidate for nothing under the broad heaven, from the presidency! down?" [ "Would you take it if you could get it?" :,:.. • , "I would not like to accept what has. not been offered me." 7g\ "Will you make any effort to secure: it?" ; "Not that I know of now. I have ar ranged no plan of any such thing." "Would you like to have it?" "Well, 1 suppose that is an honor such as no man would refuse. It is not immodest to say 1 or any man would be proud of such an honor." He woie a quizzical smile, and that was positively all that could be obtained from him. But putting everything to gether, it may be set down as almost certain that an organized effort will be made in behalf of the Minneapolis mayor, and that an Ames headquarters will be opened at St. Louis. Ames' friends say he is doing nothing with the Minnesota delegation, and will make no light in any connection with it. It is also said in Minneapolis that a move ment is on foot looking to the election of C. D. O'Brien as a member of the national committee. SAID BY POLITICIANS. E. H. Moulton— The taxpayers should make it their duty to see that none but property owners are nominated for al dermen at the coming city convention. The reason why the city expenses are so rapidly increasing is because the council is largely composed of men who pay no taxes. Capt. Sam P. Snider— l must admit that the young men in this county have never had their proper share of the offices, but it has been their own fault, for they have been in the majority for years. But although a large majority of the Republican party is under the age of thirty-five years, they should re member that it is only by uniting with the older members that the Republican ticket can be elected. Henry Downs— election of Frank Davis to the Chicago convention will cost the Republican party next fall just $7,000. It is all right now for the young men to say, "We are in the majority and we intend to have our share of the offices," but when election time comes, who is going to furnish the money for campaign expenses? Capt. Ben P. Shuler— The young men have done a very foolish thing in send ing a young, inexperienced fellow like Frank Davis down to Chicago. Why, the chairman of the Minnesota delega tion should have been some one with a national reputation. Its all right to elect young men to the county offices, but when it comes to state and national politics they should be relegated to the rear. Albert M. Scott— l am just waiting to see whether Capt. Te.rrill is going to be • able to make the riffle for the office of clerk of court. I believe he will pull out of the race before the county con vention meets, and if he does why. then I will come out as a candidate. There has been dozens of young men who always take an active part in the cam paigns who have urged me to run, but I hesitate about fighting the captain. Freeman P. Lane— Fletcher has some queer notions about politics. Now, if a man is working in his inter est, he suspects him of trying to do him up in some underhanded manner, but if he is against him, why then he is a fine fellow and nothing is too good for him. It makes me laugh when I hear a man say that he never goes back on a friend. Why he will never do anything for you, unless you fight him. James C. Worrall— l understand that Bobby Evans claims to be the man who first mentioned Frank Davis as a candi date to the Chicago convention, and that he also claims the credit of en gineering his election at the state con vention. . Now, I don't know who it was that first trotted Frank out as a candi through Bob Evans at the convention that Frank got there. The man who is entitled to the credit for that work is Doc Hedderly. Fine Entertainment Promised. The entertainment to be given this evening under the auspices of the Minneapolis Press club will un doubtedly attract a large audience. The contributors to the programme include the best musical and dramatic talent in the city. Sol Smith Russell, the great comedian, appears in character sketches. President Northrop. of the state university, makes an address, and the Carroll-Man dolin Zither and Banjo clubs contribute numbers. The Can full orchestra is also down for two selections, besides furnishing an accompaniment to A. W. Porter. Altogether, the programme is certainly the most attractive ever offered for an entertainment in the city. The sale of seats has been large, and a crowded house is already assured. AMUSEMENTS. "Lost In London," which made such a popular hit at the People's, was re repeated last evening to a crowded house, and the production of "Our Boys" occurs to-night, which is to run until Wednesday evening, when "Hazel KTrke" is to be given upon the occa sion of the benefit to Wallace D. Shaw. : Turner hall last evening was well filled upon the occasion of the benefit to A. E. Kindervater, the gymnastic in structor of the West Side Turner society. A very interesting gymnastic entertain ment was given, the Danz orchestra con tributing several musical selections. ; There has been an unusual demand for seats at the Grand Saturday, for Mrs. Brown Potter's engagement. It looks now as if this fair society amateur would play to large business. It's proper you know, to sustain soci ety favorites and our society is just intending to turn out in force to see her. Several theater parties have been organized. Mrs. Potter will ap pear Tuesday in the "Lady of Lyons," and Wednesday in "Romeo and Juliet." Kyrle Bellew and a choice company are in support. Hicks & Sawyer's gigantic colored minstrels will fill the last three nights at the Grand. The company is far more pleasing in programme and stronger in talent than the more pre tentious white organizations. Manager Hicks claims to have the banner com pany on the road. A street parade will be given every day. .• Smiley Walker,* business manager of Annie Pixley, is expected in town to day to arrange for the appearance of his star at the Grand next week. ■ THE CLEARANCES.

It was while liv ing here that he fell in love with a beau tiiul Spanish girl, Donna Francesca Fonseca, the daughter of the alcade, or local justice of the peace. Donna Francesca could handle a gun as well as any hunter in the neighbor hood, and from a line of sturdy Spanish ancestors she inherited a brave spirit and indomitable courage. The young couple were betrothed, and it was set tled that they should be married early in September. One day a boy who worked for Mr. Bayard rode up in great haste to the ranch of Don Fonseca and informed him that a band of robbers, under the redoubtable Jaquin Alvaros, had robbed the office of the mine and carried Frank Bayard away a prisoner. Donna Francesca did not weep and wring her hands when she heard the news. She slipped up to her room, cut off her beautiful hair, and putting on a boy's suit, mounted a fleet horse and galloped away in pursuit of the bandits. For several days she continued her march to the mountains, hardly stopping for food. On the noon of the third day she was delighted to see the smoke rising from a fire in the bandit's camp. Crawling toward the opening her joy increased as she saw her lover wandering unharmed about the camp, but evidently under guard. That night through the rocky gateway the brave girl crept until she found herself at her lover's side. "Sh! 'Tis I— Francesca! Follow me but make no noise," and she thrust a re volver into his hands. Back to the gateway with infinite care and caution ; past the sentry into the cleft; then on their feet; one long, lov ing embrace, and then onward up the trail she was leading him. The horses reached, they saddled and started, Francesca going first; and as they rode she told him how she had come after him. It was nearly 10 o'clock, when, as they were climbing up the side of a mountain, after having crossed a small valley, they heard some shots behind them, and, pausing, saw the bandits, some twenty in number, descending the trail they had gone over two hours before. Fran cesca laughed. "I know a place about three miles from here," she said: "we could hold out for a week against an army. Come, let's hurry on." A turn of the road, as they wound round the highest part of the mountain trail, and she reined her hoise in. It was a natural fort. On one side the . rock went up straight for nearly a > : hundred feet, while on the other the i precipice went down sheer. The^ shelf I upon which the trail ran was not more I than six feet high. 1 " "Let us camp here and wait for them." Tying the horses behind in a little ; .bay-like opening in the side of the ' mountain, while Frank Bayard built a wall of loose stones, some five or six feet high, Donna Francesca got the sad dlebags, and from them produced an t abundance of food. The two took their breakfast leisurely, talking and laugh : -ing the while. . . But this pleasant time was inter -1 Erupted by the tramp of horses, and a ; •man appeared round the corner. I i "Senor," said Frank, "l Lave escaped. as you know. I advise you to go back. I am well armed, and if you advance it will be death." The bandit paused, then speaking to the men behind him, he turned his horse round and disappeared. In a few min utes, however, he came back with three or four more. There was a clear space of some thirty feet they had to cross be fore reaching the wall. i "Senors," said Frank again, "I warn you." The reply was an oath, followed by a rush. Crack! crack! crack! went the repeating rifles, and only two men reached the wall. One Frank struck with his fist and knocked him out to the edge of the cliff, where he made a desperate attempt to recover himself,' failed, and fell with a yell. The other the girl shot. :,I&gg In that narrow space, an I among that compact body of men, it was impossible to miss. The attacking party wavered, one turned, and then another, while the ledge was strewn with dead and wounded men. - 'SBBgsffttBB&SP&BB&P Suddenly Francesca heard a horse be- , hind them and turned pale. . •". "If these are more of those bandits," * she said fiercely, "I must not fall alive into their hands." And Frank promised with a look. In intense aniety they waited for five or six minutes, which seemed an age, and then around a turn in the trail they saw Don Ramon coming. For the first time Francesca gave way and fainted. The only Mexican lady with short hair I ever saw in my life" was Senora Francesca Bayard, for her husband would never allow her to grow it long again. He used to say, as they told the story in their pleasant home, that, beautiful as it had been in his eyes before it was cut, it was more beautiful now. A SURE SAFEGUARD.
