Walden, Larimer Oounty, Oolorado, Friday, February 8, 1901 Christianity In China Killed. ‘Any thoughtful person who has been in Pekin with the allies can not but speculate as to what effect this visitation will have on the population of China. It is luminously evident to my mind that for generations to come the progress of Christianity in China is absolutely killed. In China the faith was practically making no real progress, but what little progress it has made among the lower classes and the destitute coolies, who form the bulk of the so-called converts, is now atterly wiped out. It will be generations before the recollection of this latest crusade is erased from the memories of the Chinese people.”— George Lynch, English War Corres pondent. How Much We Talk. Few of us probably ever think ser iously about the amount of talking we do in a day, add how large a fac tor mere talk is in the life of the world for both good and evil. It has been estimated that a public speaker utters in one hour, on an average, what if printed would occupy fifteen octavo pages. Ordinary conversation is even more prolific. Let us suppose, says The Winouian, that all the talk of one day be cstiwatcil as equivalent to four hours’ consecutive speaking, iu a single week the amount would make what, if printed, would be an octavo of three hundred and twenty pages. In a year he would complete fifty-two such volumes; and iu thirty years he would have accumulated a library of five hundred and sixty vol umes of ins own talk. What value would most of us place on such u library? llow many of us could endure to read it? How many would feel satisfied to have such books go on the market? It is re lated of Dean Swift that at an even ing party, he retired to a corner of the room and commenced noting ilown the talk of the company. Be ing asked what he was doing he pro duced a verbatim report of the con versation which had Just taken place. Most of the speakers, it is added, felt no small humiliation over the super ficial and trilling character of their utterances when confronted with them.—Forward.—[We agree with the thought of the last sentence ol the above. So much of our every day talk is mere chatter. « 'Get ready for the Bal Masque to be held at the. Odd Fellows’ Hall on February 22.

FoA CCLtIXS, - - Ci LOBADO Cobweb Sociable. Walden, Colo., Feb. 1, 1901. Editor Union, Dear Sir:— You state in your last issue that during LhcMo quiet times, items are scarce, and we believe yoQ. In an isolated place like North Park we must look to ounelves for amusement. There is no one whose business it is to furnish it to us ready made. Let us awake from our Rip Van Winkle sleep and pour a little soda (straight, not as a chaser) into our think tanks and see if we can not put a little effervescence into our monotonous existence. The Cobweb sociable at Esq. Cow drey's was a step in tho right direc tion. M. J. Capron's express wagon went down heavily loaded. Wo no ticed one long slim package, marked “To whom it may concern,” “value 30 cents, collect #l." The balance of the load consisted of Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Wilson, Mrs. Chas. Riggen, Mr. and Mrs. M. J. Capron, Misses Mamie Riggen and Ella Capron, Masters Arthur, Harry, and Manly, Capron. Others from Walden were Masters Albert Rogers. Clarence and Roy Boston, Valdai Shippoy, Frank Loucks,Douglas Lang hoff, and Richard Martin. Among those from Pinkkamton district were, Mr. and Mrs. A. Dwinell, Mr. and Mrs. C. Baker, T. J. Payne, Robert and Lindsey Coe, E. McDonald, C. Fletcher, C. Mcrril, Clarence Webb. F. Brigcs, J. Myers, and Bessie and Fred Baker. Even the man in the moon Beemcd to be exerting himself to make the occasion a complete success. His phiz was hanging at its full capacity makiug night almost as light as day. After a hearty greeting by mine host and family wo repaired to the par lor, where the next three hours were plcasautly occupied with music, cha rades and luck}'coutests; those who drew the lucky or unlucky numbers giving them the priylfigc (?) of tracing up and unraveling the mystic web were. Misses Mamie Riggen and Ella Capron, to go cast, aud Douglas Laugholf and M. J. Capron to go west, they went and after traveling many devious ways they returned, Miss Capron having a cup and saucer and Douglas Laughoff a negro baby as trophies of their superior luck or skill. Then came the sonorous voice of mine host reverberating through the house, “All you hungry men this way and tell m 6 what you consider to be the value of a fine basket of lunch with a lady attachment” N. B. The attachment to last only daring the time of eating the lunch. Our genial friend RobL Coe, whose capacity is 17 cu. feet, secured the first basket for $2. It was a gigantic affair, filled to overflowing, but oh! the delusiveness of its contents. After removing the fifty-two num bers of the last year's issuo of the North Park Union ho found in one corner a small lunch. He was fortu nate however iu finding also the name of a very small attachment. Other baskets went from one to two dollars, the boys getting plates with out attachment for twenty five cents. Tho receipts amounted to twenty dollars and fifty cents, which was turned over to the salary fund. All were well pleased with their in vestments except Lindsey Coe who said that his attachment kept him so busy waiting on her that he did not get his share of the lunch. After j supper there was more music and Rev. Wilson recited two humorous poems, the first telling how a lighten ing rod agent wcttked upon bis sym pathy at so much per foot. The second telling of his varied emotions during ft peformance of the world rb nouned pianist Robertstien. The selection! wfcrc well rendered and highly appreciated. After a short talk by Rev. Wilson on the subject of wholesome amusements wo took the back track feeling that we had had a royal good time and hoping that the dose may be repeated.
