Stillwater has been called "The
Park City." The residence sections,
beautified with innumerable shade
trees, are on the bluffs, which sur
round the business district in a semi
circle. Lawns, shrubbery and flowers
contribute to the setting for the many
attractive homes of the city. A water
works plant, furnishing the purest
spring water^ is among the valuable
assets of Stillwater. The springs sup
plying this water gush out from be
neath the hills to the west, and are
inexhaustible.
Stillwater, for many years, was a
great lumbering center, the St. Croix
river and its tributaries on the upper
reaches having yielded many billions
of feet of the finest quality of white
pine. But the days of Stillwater's
fame as a lumbering center are over,
although logs are still cut on the St.
Croix and several mills are convert
ing them into lumber. The city's
principal industry of the past has been
replaced by many manufacturing
plants.
Stillwater has a population of
10,000. Its citizens are progressive
and alert. Their ambition is to make
Stillwater the most desirable home
city in the West, an ambition that is
rapidly approaching a reality.
The new Minnesota State prison
(the finest in the world) is beautifully
"There is not, and there never was
on this earth, a work of human policy
so well deserving of examination as
the Roman Catholic Church. The his
tory of that Church joins together the
two great ages of human civilization.
No other institution is left standing
which carries the mind back to the
times when the smoke of sacrifice rose
from the Pantheon, and when camelo
pards and tigers bounded in the
Flavian amphitheatre. The proudest
royal houses are but of yesterday
when compared with the line of the
Supreme Pontiffs. That line we trace
back in an unbroken series from the
Pope who crowned Napoleon in the
nineteenth century, to the Pope who
crowned Pepin in the eighth and far
beyond the time of Pepin the august
dynasty extends till it is lost in the
twilight of fable. The Republic of
Venice came next in antiquity. But
the Republic of Venice was. modern
when compared to the Papacy and
the Republic of Venice is gone, and
the Papacy remains. The Papacy re
mains, not in decay, not a mere an
tique, but full of life and youthful
vigor. The Catholic Church is still
sending forth to the farthest ends of
the world missionaries as zealous as
those who landed in Kent with
Augustine, and still confronting hos
tile kings with the same spirit with
which she confronted Attila. The
number of her children is greater
than in any former age.
"Her acquisitions in the New World
have more than compensated for what
she has lost in the Old. Her spiritual
ascendency extends over the vast
countries which lie between the plains
of Missouri and Cape Horn, countries
which, a century hence, may not im
probably contain a population as large
as that which now inhabits Europe.

situated two miles south of the center
of Stillwater, on a broad plateau over
looking the St. Croix, at an elevation
of about 40 feet. Directly in front
of the prison the ground slopes ab
ruptly to the river flats. The prison
farm has an area of 800 acres, and
the prison enclosure proper of 22
acres. The plans of the new prison
realize the best ideals of modern
prison architecture. The handsome
buildings are plain, substantial, com
fortable and fireproof. The visitor is
amazed at the care that has been be
stowed on every detail of construc
tion to make the prison a model of
its kind.
A number of thriving factories are
taking the place of saw mills which
have passed away and promise much
for its business development in the
future. The natural sequence of its
former great industry, lumbering, is
found in three woodworking estab
lishments which furnish all kinds of
supplies for building purposes. Shoe
and garment factories furnish another
feature of the city's industrial life.
Another great industrial feature of
the community is the state institution
which manufacturers binding twine
and farm machinery, and incidentally
employs a large number of citizens in
the conduct of the institution and its
factories.
The members of her communion are
certainly not fewer than a hundred
and fifty millions and it will be diffi
cult to show that all other Christian
sects united amounted to a hundred
and twenty millions. Nor do we see
any sign which indicates that the term
of her long dominion is approaching.
She was great and respected before
the Saxon had set foot on Britian, be
fore the Frank had passed the Rhine,
when Grecian eloquence still flourish
ed at Antioch, when idols were still
worshipped in the temple of Mecca.
And she may still exist in undiminish
ed vigor when some traveller from
New Zealand shall, in the midst of a
vast solitude, take his stand on a
broken arch of London Bridge to
sketch the ruins of St. Paul's."

the world must first be thoroughly

by the various accidents and contra

When a man can willingly forego
wten the outward services of religion
and stay away from the house of God
and let the seasons of devotion paeNt
by without a thought of regret, hi*
faith and love must be at a low ebb,
if, indeed, they have not altogether
dried up and blown away.
