Morning text, Romans 14:7—"For none of us liveth to.himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live we live unto the Lird,'aud Whether we die we die auto the rd. Whether we live therefore or die we are the Lord's.' ODO of the most important faots die oovered in our modern age is that all foroe is correlated. That heat, eleotric ity, light, motion, sound, all there are forms of force, correlated to each other, easily transformed the one into the other, The rapid motion of the falling water of an artesian well causes a wheel to re volve. That is transformed by skillful meohanism into frictirn, magnetism, an eleatrio onrrent, light. All these things are cjrrelated, depending one upon an other, and lending *heir energies eaoh to each. Following this idea into the world of Vegetable .and animal life we fiod a similar latf of correlation. Vegetable life of one sort depends upon other vegetable life for its existence. But the most remarkable' fbstance of correlation perhaps is that betwet the vegetable and animal world, in the matter of Tei tilizntion. Some plants oould never fertilize their own seed without the help of bees and insects. So in the animal world, all things living are correlated, depending one upon another tor exist ence. In the physical wotld and organio world both, it is true that no one liveth to himselt and no one dieth to himself bat nut antil we come into the realm ot human life do we find the law so per fectly carried out. The business world is a most oomplete unit. In these days, more than ever before, the entire fabrio of sooiety is liDked and woven together so oloBely that no disturbing element in one portion of' human sooiety fails to have its important results in every por tipn. More and more the whole world-is coming to see and feel kinship. We oannot as a nation live onto ourselves if we would. No matter howqniet or retired the life of any person, still it is true that that person cannot live uuto himself. Bis life haB 9 a EH an e£fect on all abont him. This correlation of life—this dependence of one upon another, makes oar lives far more important than they otherwise would be, And it ought to be ever the anxious thought of our lives how we can as men and women, profoundly effecting all around us, so live BB to help others, The burden of Christ's teaohing is how to liye well here. The burden of the new testament is righteousness. JOBUB Christ oomes to teaoh men to obpy oonscienoe. And the righteousness is not primarily for the benefit of the individual himself, but beoause he lives in a sooiety of meii and women who are going to be blessed by his righteoasneBs or enrssd by his sin. Ohrist's command is, "Love one another as I have loved yon,"' which means that as Christ Baorifioed himself for oa, BO we ought to sacrifice our own interests for the interests of those about as. And so as we live for the Lard, we come to apply the law of love to evary "oiroum stanoe and detail of life, until our lives are like that of Jesus Christ, all blessing and help. What greater ambition can any man have than to do good to every body abont him, and not be weary in well doing. How a man's life is trans formed when this idea fills him. What a transformed world we wonld have when we did things with the law of love ap plied to every aot. The evening discourse was the third on the life of the Apostle Paul, from Aots 9:20—"And straightway he preach ed Christ in the synagogues, that he is the S of God." In the introductory part of the dis course referenoe was made to the with drawal of the great apostle to Arabia where he remained for some time and where he reoeived the inspiration for his life work. Inoidents connected with his return to Damascus and his first visit to Jerusalem after his oonyersion were also given. Paul spent about five years in Tarsus when he was oalled to a larger work. The pastorate of a single home missionary oburoh was to be exchanged for the wide field of the missionary. Paul and Barnabus labored together in Antioch for a year and taught maltitudes of people. At the end of Paul's year of servioe in Antiooh a famine oeourred in Judea and the christians at Antiooh took up a speoial oolleotion for the christians in Jadea and sent Paul and B.rnabas with the relief to Jerusalem, It oannot be too mnoh insisted upon that mission ary work at home, abroad, everywhere, is the true work of the oburoh. The ohuroh that lives for itself, that ntver interests itself in the regions beyond its own limits, has not the spirit of Ckri»t and must die. After distributing to the necessities of the poor Paul and Barna bas returned to Antiooh, bringing with them a young disoiple—the talented author of the seoond goBpel—John whose surname was Mark. The following hints were gathered from the aoonunt as we have followed it thus far: 1. Let me oall your attention to the willingness of Paul and the other chris tians of bis time to enter upon aggressive christian work. S. Paul, although he went to work at onoe after he was converted, was not given^ny important oharge antil he had been a ohristian eight years. 3. Let me suggest-that when trials and disappointments oome in the ohris tian life—when humiliations come, and old friends forsake OP, and those who onght to be friends distrust ua—that we do not allow ttiese things to soor as and make ns oomplein and grumble. Let as strive to do the will of Jesus Christ, to grow into His likeness, to be PSJ# oon (ormable to Hia will. METHODIST EPISCOPAL OHUROH, Tbe paator spokein the morning from the text—"There is one God and one Mediator between God and man." The faot of there being but one God w.s proven from the Itarmony of the oni verse. All things are onda? His own hand. Man alone of all created beings is oot of harmony with God, This want of harmony is shown by the unrest of the soul—the sense of guilt—the sorrow that abounds on every side also by woe suffering and death. How can we approaoh God We need a mediator. We fail when we try to comfort others, our words fall ehort. When we attempt to pray for others we must first pray for ourselves. There is oae Mediator, the man Christ Jesus, He is willing, He is fitted to undertake the tsBk, He is susoesstal, trust Him. In the evening a full hnuse greeted Prof. Cornwall, the state temperanoe leoturer of the piohibition association. He took for his subject the lioense mut ed to Haman by Ki^g Ahueueros, to murder, to kill, to rob and destroy all Jews for ten tbonaand talents of silver, and said that the friends of BO-called high license ought to be ashamed of their talk about $1000 being high, in view of what this man paid—at least a million dollars in greenbacks. He traoed the analogy between this lioense and the lioense to sell iotoxioating liquorB, in that it was granted by the governing t. It was to marder men, women and chil dren, It was to rob and the money to be paid into the king's treasury was to be plundered from those who were to be killed, just aa licanse money is to-day. The speaker held his audience deeply interested during the entire disoourBe. and they were unanimous in the opinion that no better temperanoe discourse has ever been delivered in Xankton. Prof Cornwall is a pleasant, earnest speaker, and without vindiotiveneBS presents the prohibition side of the case in a most convincing manner. fBKHOXAL,. Peter Htefiin is improving.

There is a siiBpioion of bunoombe in the passage of a prohibition bill by the present legislature, to take effoot on the 1st of January, 1890. The artesian well at Hamilton is pro gressing, some 200 feet of granite baviDg been bored in five weeks. The well is down 1,200 feet now. The oounty com missioners invested $2,000 lesently in the work. The Glendale tin mining oompany with headquarters in (Jhioago, is de veloping its properties in Pennington oounty. Ton tons of tin stone ware sent to the mines for a test. Tf the result is satisfactory the oompany will ereot a mill. Ramor says that W.J. Murphy, the late proprietor of the Grand Forks, Flaindealer, will again be at the helm of a Grand Forks daily. It is said that pressure has been brought to bear upon Mr. Murphy to induoe him to start a new daily. The excitement so relation to the sosrlet fever oontinues at Bismarok and the ohurohes and schools have all been closed. As a matter of faot there have been but three deaths, acd but five oases are known to the city authorities, but precautions are being taken beoause of the general alarm. Sheriff Smith, of Stutsman oounty, Dak., arrived in Helena last week with a requisition from Gov. Church for Ed ward Callahan, under arrest at Glendive, an esoaped prisoner. The governor made out the neoesaary instrument and the sheriff returned to Glendive for his prisoner. Farmers in Potter oounty are pretiy well prepared for sprint? work. They have taken advantage of the pleasant winter to clean np their etei and get their implements in repair.' From oare ful estim ites, made from statemfnts of men in the various parts ot the oonntry, the aoreage of wheat will be fully double that of la?t year. The diphtheria scare that prevailed at Grand Forks for some time has now en tirely subsided. The oases at the uni versity have all been oured and tb« taBk of thoroughly disinfecting the building is under way. Bad drainage is oharged with having been a faotor in developing the oases at this institution. This has been remedied by plumbers. It is ex pected that classes will be resumed again in a few days. There will be no war between oitizens and half-breeds in Bolette oounty. The entire matter of taxing the half-breeds has been submitted to the government, and both parties seem fnolined to abide the decision. The breeds who over powered the sheriff and took from him their ptoperty, whioh had bean attaohed for taxes, are still at large, and warrants sworn out for tbem h-ve not been served. CHANDLER ASSAULTED, Senator Blackburn Shakes np the \ew Hampshire Senator. Washington speoial, 22: A personal enoounter took plaoe in the senate oom mittee on railroads late this afternoon, whioh two very eminent statesmen now regret. Not sinoe Preaton Brooks as saulted Charles Sumner has there been a oersosal alteroation between two United States senators involving seotional dif ferences. A long period of unbroken peace was broken this afternoon when Senators Blackburn and Chandler, after a sharp interchange of courtesies that are not oourteous, grappled with each other and proceeded to settle their dif ferences by the modern arbitrament of personal prowess. Chandler is a special ist on southern outrages, but as long as be oonfioed himself to malignancy to ward the south at long range through the pages of the Congressional Record no one objeoted. To-day, In the room of the committee on railroads, where was being held a session of the speoial oommittee on Indian post traders, ia the presence of Faulkner, Cullom and Piatt, Obandlerand Blaokborn got into a heated discussion about the report on post-traderahips. Blaokburn wanted Chandler to give the names of witnesses upon whose testimony the report was based. Chandler refused, jumped to bis r«et and said: "I'll not be bulldozed by any slave drivers like you." The Kentuokian walked around to where the little fire-eater was sitting, and shook bis fist in Chandler's faoe. Ton little sooundrel and liar, if you were not a ooward I would fLil -wsg&m ,4 arms about the Kentuckian, who, by this time, had his fingers around the1 neok of Chandler, Other senators pres ent also went to Obandler's aid and unloosened Blaokburn's grasp from his neok. The two men remained in the oommittee for seme minutis when both were oonduoted to the oorridor, eaoh taking a carriage for his residence. Heroio efforts have been made to pre vent the matter from gaining publicity. It is difficult to tell what will be the out come, there being no probability that the delioious excitement of a duel will follow. It is smd that Chandler will insinuate oivil proceedings for damages against his antagonist.. At a late hour to-night Ohandler's neok and one side of his faoe was badly swollen, and his physicians fear that lookjaw will be the result. HOW ABOUT MATHEWS7 Will tlte Politicians Suoccea in Down in* the Delegate. Klect. Sioux Falls, Dak., Feb. 21—The Mandan Pioneer reports that a South Dakota politician from Aurora oounty was in that offloe not long ago, and in answer to & question as to what would beoome of Mathews after admission, re plied that "We will deal with him all right, and we will see that he don't get a thing." This is to be the treatment of Mathews for his voting at Watertown. There has been some whispering on the quiet that Mathews must be laid ont oold, but this is the first mention whioh has found its way into print. The ex treme Suuth Dakota men seem to b6 planning to get even with the delegate eleot for winning a hard fought battle at Watertowu. A number ot politicians may have decided upon this oourse, but it is far from likely that the people will give their assent to it. Mathews is entitled to a seat in con gress and there is little reasonable doubt that he will get it. AB delegate his term of offloe apd salary will begin on Maroh 4. He was elected for two years and if he should be again eleoted he would then simply serve as congressman the term for whioh be was Chosen delegate. The above expression purports to come from a friend of Delegate Gifford, but it is doubtful if Judge Gifford would give his assent to it. He is an honorable gentleman and loves fair play. His own oounty and those nearest his home gave Mathews the strongest support that the tioket reoeived, and this faot did not es cape the attention of Mathews. In talk ing with a gentleman about this faot, the delegate-eleot deolared that, so far as he had any ibfiuenoe witn the administration, Judge Gifiord's friends should not be overlooked. It is safe to say that if the rank and file ot the peo ple discover any attempt cn the part of the politicians to "sit on" Mathews they will proceed to "Bit it }r\ i/ on" the politicians." Besides, the boys in the southeast corner must remember that South Dakota ia likely to be divided into four geographi cal seotions, viz The south, central, north and the Blaok Hills seotions, and that will be as easy for Mathews' friends to combine againBt others as for the rest to combine against him. It ia safe to say that George A Mathews will be one of the first congressmen from South Dakota, and those who are thus planning to defeat him are simply pav ing the way for defeat for themselves. in Omnibus Bill Bello. Washington, D. O., Feb. 22.—The bill admitting the two Dakotas, Montana and Washington territory was to day made'a law. A few minutes before 11 o'alook this morning, President Cleve land attaobed his autograph to the famous bill, and ended the great strug gle whioh has been oooupying the atten tion of congress for the past four years. Mr. Cleveland signed the bill in a muoh bolder hand than he usually writes, and those who are familiar with his signature have often remarked that his handwrit ing was very small when compared with his physical stature. The bill was signed with a quill pen, the quill having been plucked trom the wing of an eagle killed in North Dakota. Tbe quill was sent him a few days ago by a gentleman living in that section of the territory, with the request that if possible, he would use this quill for tbe first time in attaohing his signature to the territorial bill. This request the president com plied with, and in turn sent the quill to day to Delegate Gifford, making him a present of it, whioh was accompanied by a very pleasant little note from the president, saying that it any historical value oould be added to the instrument, be was glad to give Mr. G.fford tbe benefit of it. Mr. Gifford of oourse ac cept e3 the quill, and sent tbe president a polite note in reply, thanking him for his thooghtfulness. Mr. Gifford said to night to the Tribune correspondent that be would take tbe quill home with him and present it to one or the other of the hietorieal societies ot the two states, but you. If yoa dare to rise I will whip you. it is not decided whioh of the states stall right here." Chandler shrank in his olothes and flaid: "Tou dare not strike me." "Dare not, eh?" and the burly Ken tuokian took him by the coat llar and jerked him oot of his ohair, throwing him agaipst the wall with a foroe so vio lent that the New Hampshire senator was stunned for the next few minutes and was comparatively speeohlers. At this juncture Senator Faulkner, of West Virginia, uprang op and threw hia •si "1^ %»'&>•-! have it. He'thinks, however, that the beet way to determine the question will be that the first governors of the two states, after their eleolioo, shall draw lots for it Mr. Gifford, being a resident of South Dakota, would naturally prefer to give it to his own state, but as the quiU oame from North Dakota, be thinks that perhsps it would be but fair that the quill should be returned to that commonwealth. He has already tied •ibout it the ribbons of red, white and blue. J?
