D., to the Tribune says: The democratic state convention to be held September 1 will indorse the people's party electoral ticket. This has been decided upon by represent* atives for each county. A plan is being formulated to have one of the people's party candidates for congress withdraw and a democrat run in his stead. It is likely that fusion will extend further than the electoral and congressional tickets. Flandreau Herald, 19: If PieWef^-fs anxious to meet Kelly for a joint dis cussion he will no doubt be accommo dated as we have been informed by Mr. Kelly that he is perfectly willing to meet Pickler at any time or place in the state, and we venture to predict that Pickler won't have so very much "fun" with him either. "Fools step in where angels fear to tread.'' Kelley is always ready. He was the fellow in the legislature last winter who wanted to be bribed so badly that he made a public demon istration to call attention to the fact Gut nobody would give him a bite. Poor Kelley! He festers at the mouth and breaks out tre^ueutlv. Baron dispatch, 19: Hon. 3. A. Pick ler reached here from Washington last evening. Following the adjournment of congress he remained to examine a number of claims of South Dakota old soldiers for pensions, and in nearly all cases succeeded in getting the attention of the department directed to them, with a promise of their early adjustment. During the late session Pickler has ex* amined over 500 applications tiled under the new law, and but little attention is given to applications for increase, the commissioner believing those who re ceive no pension should be first cared for. It will be but a few months, how ever, until applications for increase will be tajcen up and disposed of. The boys be must patient a little while and they will hear from their claims. The state board of etjualizatioit has pawed upon the real estate assessments of all the counties except the Black Hills counties which constitute a claae by themselves. The other counties of the state are divided into five classes and the assessments range from 02.77 per acre in Hyde and Buffalo counties to $8.31 in Minnehaha. Lake county is in the second class with Bon Homme, Hutchinson, Moody and Brookings, and was assessed at an average of 95.29 per acre. The state board raised this live per cent making the assessed valuation $5,55 per acre. No counties were lower ad half of them were raised, many as much as 25 and 30 per cent and in the ease of|Grant county, 50 per cent. City property was left as returned. Bank •lock has been returned at all the way from 30 to 100 per cent its value, and is thought will be equalized upon a ba^is of 50 or 60 per cent its nominal value. iiMt.

John Sobieski prohibited the Turks from entering middle Europe and now hit descendant and namesake wants to prohibit whisky in Missouri. The* nomination of a man of that name for governor of a great state is an event savoring of political romauce. JOHS King John and his Poles slaughtered some 50,000 Turks at Vienna, and this John is a sol dier of fine record SOBIE8RI. both in the Amer icas and Mexican armies. The mere fact of a Pole being a Prohibition leader is curions in itself. The king, John III, WW the greatest warrior of his time, and saved hot Poland only but Austria from the Turks. In re turn Austria but half a century after her deliverer's death joined in dividing his country, and the iast Sobieski in Poland was hanged by the Russians. That was Count John Sobieski, and he was the father of the Missouri candidate. This occurred when the lx)y was five years old, and he and his mother were expelled from their country and all their property was confiscated. The countess went to Italy and thence to London, where she died. The orphan boy had read of America. He secreted himself on a vessel and reached the New World as a stowaway, and the day after landing in New York, being then twelve years old, he entered the army as a bugler. After some service in the Army of the Potomac and a year or two on the plains he went to Mexico and fought in the re publican army till Juarez was restored. For twenty-two months he was Escobedo's chief of staff. In 1868 he located in Min nesota and was elected to the legisla ture. He introduced three bills—to pro hibit the sale of liquor, to give women the right to vote and to abolish capital pun ishment. He became noted as a temper ance lecturer, and in 1882 located in Neo sho* Afc^|rhere he still resides. HIS OWN STORY. CudMato Kwtifi*« Account «fHia Utb and Doiaga. John W, Ewing, of Grand Ledge, Mich., the People's party nominee for governor in that state, was born in New York, and gives the following account of himself: "I am forty-five years old and am a farmer. I reside on the farm upon which I started when a young man, and to which I have added and improved as the years have rolled by. I am one of those silo or ensilage cranks, having used one for four years, and would not winter stock without it. I believe in being in the front rank in my avocation as well as in other things. My former political affiliations were with the Republican party. I voted for Peter Cooper and have been with the jMnr' w. swxxoC reform element since that time. I have been elected supervisor of Oneida township, Eaton county, for ten years continuously, and have bean the chairman of the board of supervisors for the last two years. "I represented Eaton county before the state board of equalization in 1801. I have held other minor offices, justice of the peace. *tc., in my township, and have been one of the directors of the Farmers' Mutual Fire Insurance company of Barry and Eaton counties for fifteen years. I have made one canvass for the legislature on the reform ticket and one for judge of probate'against a larRe Republican major ity and came out ahead of inv ticket in both instances, although beaten." Mr. Ewing might have added that he is a widower with five children and is com fortably well off in the goods of the worjd. 1k»M B—arfcaM There have been three summers in the United States in which there was scarce ly a month in which the temperature would not have I Ken more appropriate to winter than to "the season wnen voluptu ous nature surrenders her treasures to the wanton hand of man." The most notable of these inappropriate summers was in 1816, in which year January and February were v warm and springlike. March was cold and stormy. Vegetation had gotten well along in April when real winter set in. Snow and sleet fell on seventeen dif ferent days in May. In June there was either frost or snow every night but three. The snow wxas five inches deep for several days in succession in the interior of New York and from ten inches to three feet In Vermont and Maine. July was cold and frosty ice formed as thick as window panes in every one of the New England states. August was still worse ice formed nearly an inch in thickness and killed nearly every green thing in the United States. In the spring of 1817 corn, which had been kept over from the crop of 1815, sold for from five to ten dollars a bushel, the buyers purchasing for seed. On May 10, 1839, nnow fell to the depth of a foot in Jamestown, Va., and was piled up in huge drifts jn most of the northern states. There was snow in many parts of Iowa and Illinois on May 11,1878, and again as late ag May 28,1882. WML rteM» CM' JMmm* riaptj*, -.

Mark 2:6 -Why reason ye these things in your hearts." Last Sunday we Con sidered God's invitation to reason with him, and found the right use of reason religion (a) in applying its deductions to natural reliigion, (b) when its deduc tions are baaed on ascertained and au thentic data, (c) when used to apply re vealed truth to the affaire of life and the soul's destiny, (d) in weighing evidences of divine revelation. We found finite limitations to the capabilities of reason, with faith and a divine revelation given to supplement its incapacity. The text intimates that reason way be abused. This we do: (1) when its deduc tions are accepted as final, though based on imperfect knowledge and insufficient data (2) when, therefore, we assume an overwise judgment of the inspired reve lation (3) when we deny the reliability of a truth or doctrine simply because it goes beyond the reach or reason's com prehension (4) when we permit the judgment to be warped by educational, social or religious preconceptions or pre judices (5) when we exaggerate the diffi culties, mysteries or uncertainties of re ligion, overlooking the mysteries, uncer tainties and difficulties in other matters of belief i. e., scienoe, philosophy, Ac. (6) when we depend on reason alone aa an all-sufficient guide in matters of reli gion. By so doing we leave no room for God's twin helpwa—faith and an inapir ed revelation. Better, like the Bailor on an unknown sea, trust the chart—God's word and the compaaa, faith. PRESBYTEHIAN CHURCH. J1 Theme, "The Dignity of Christian Manhood." Text, Ps. 8:5, "Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels and bast crowned him with glory and honor." The 8th pealm ia believed to have been written by David when ha waa still young. The spirit of it is that of enthu siastic admiration for the works of God. The young poet is devoutly in love with nature and with the God of nature. In the summer season when the ajt« gifted that he may ternal world is so beautiful, (when lafea aad meadow, wood and stream an ao attractive) we are drawn to this noble 8th psalm for some helpfulf lessons. 1. Grefct ia the glory of the natural world. How vast natures resources, how wonderful her revelations, how UMS* haustible her treasures! Man pieraaa the mountain side and brings forth gold and silver, coal and iron. He fathoma the sea and admires the delicate texture of coral reef and tiny shell. He is awed by by of truths. 1st. "V 4^ the mystery of the ooean, the secrets of whose silent depths only the angels of the resurrec tion will reveal. (Time fails us to speak of all the wonders of our own world, not to mention the galaxy of worlds which twinkle and ilash in the midnight sky.) 2. But great as is nature's glory, the glory of man is greater. "Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands thou hast put all things under his feet." Lord of the brute creation, and a little lower than the angels. By nature fitted to be a resi dent of heaven. That is man's high rank in the creation of God. His is a high origin, his is a splendid destiny. All things here below are designed to serve man and to minister u his physi cal, intellectual and spiritual develop ment. Goldsmith is right *n saying: Creation's heir the world, the world is mine." St. Paul has the same thought in writing to the Corinthiana! "AH things are voura." 3. Man's greatest glory is found in hie union with Chriat. Through Him alone man ia victor over sin, the devil and death. "We are more than con quer era through Him who loved us," In Christ manhood has the most possibil ities in this life and in the life to come. Now are we the Sons of God and it doth not yet appear what we shall be." When we reflect upon the glorious possibilities of regenerated manhood how can we do a mean, djahoaaet, or or discourteous thing? GRACE CHURCH. "There are diversities of gifts, bat the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations but the same Lord And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all." I Cor. XII, 4, 5f 6. The text contains the doctrine of the Trinity. It is a statement the way in which the Three Persona in the (ma Godhead act separately, and yet in perfect unison, towards man. Hie Trinity, so acting, carry out their separate worka into the greatest diversity while yet the unity is nowhere broken, but briMigiiNl to view again in a new creattoft—the Vast multi tude of the saved tfe«»ugh Christ—H s church. It is a praMMotation of the per feet harmony in action and oneness in diversity in which should be the con stant aim of God's people everywhere, and will ultimately be the condition of khe~whole creation of God when ones the will ofGod has become the controling power in the lives of mea. This trinity i of verses contains at least a triple trinity Nillg" 'W I tlle same Spirit, the same Lord, the aame God." We usually name them in the reverse order —"Father, Son and Holy Spirit* 2nd. the trinity of realty, Or property:—"gifts, administrations, oper ations," i. e. talents, opportunities, etc., atations in life in which to use the gifts and results. 3rd, the trinity active the distribution of gifts, the so placing those who receive them aa that their gifts may be exercised, and the ao exer cising them as (a), to accomplish some end, (b) that the result' will always be in acoord with what is good and (c) that it shall be not only for the benefit of the possessor of the gift, but for the whole company of those who have received and are, in their appointed offices, exer cising their gifts under the same divine power which worketh all these gifts in all who have them. Now, looking at this again, we see that the trinity of realty is the ground of all. The Trinity Personal is the source, and the trinity active is the result, i. e. the church at God as He would have it, a living organ ism indwelt and endowed by the Holy Ghost dividing to every man severally as He will, and of which it ia said, "now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it: or one member be honored, all the members rejoice with it." There ,are many lessons for ua to learn here. In recognition of this aa the plan of the Supreme Being for the world's salvation lies the only aolution of the terrible perplexitiea which ao threaten the peace and happiness of men in our day. On this ground only can labor and capital join fraternal hands and oppreeaion, strikes, anarchy and mutual deatruction be supplanted by the socialism which is born of the Spirit of God in the brotherhood of all in union with the Son of God under the one Fatherhrod of God the Father. It is not a fancy picture or a dream. It will be realized to-day in so far aa its terms are accepted. Accept the fact that while there are diversitiea of gifts yet all are from the same giver, and there is no room left for jealousy of those who iave received more than we, or for con tempt of those who have received lew. Those giant destroyers of our happiness are slain, and there remaina but the thought of how to use our gifta to beet advantage. But that will not suffice conflict of interest might Mill reault un less we accept the fact that each alike is do service to the same Lord. Though some of many tal fents in high place have many of their fellows under them in this aerrice, yet "their Master alao is in heaven." The giant disturber of the world's peace, aelfse^king and aelf agrandizement ia flaki at this gate of the temple, and no pfted proprietor or combine of strong man, working for their own interests in disregard of the one Lord, and, so, J|the interests of the common brotherhood, can live in the tempest which the wrath of Him who gave his life a ransom for all shall raiae against them. Our simple duty is to use our gifts as that, in whatsoever we do, we may do all in the name of the Lord Jesus. But not so, even, is the trinity of realty complete, and we left to ourselves. The realty came from God and still belongs to Him. We are not left to use our gifts, even for Christ, unguided. Some try to but the result must be disaster. There is one more giant yet to be alain—the giant destructionist of the world's harmony—pride. When the facta that all we possess are gifts, that all we do is a service, and that it is the same God that worketh all His gifts in all His people for the good of all—"work ing in them to will and to do of his own good pleasure*1—arc accepted then pride dies, these twice have laid it flat, the humility of Christ takes its place and we are free to keep the royal law of love, in the boundless ooean of the love of God. rtiwMiMgiaA A »03LV'* STOP THIEF. ia la stealing tiw raaea freai aaar —ft«"f laakhig naay TII I New York rtBli.
