To-morrow, they will be given to the sheriff for dis tribution to the different precincts.

N Bishop Marty of Sioux Palls, Father Flynn of this city and Father Steelier of Howard, did a good day's service yester day.

This afternoon the Bishop lakes the train for Bristol and Miibank where he has like important and fruit ful work to do. A DAILY LEADS* reporter who has kept close tabs on the visitors to the world's fair who have taken their de parture from Madison, rounds up the to tal list at 470. Of these 200 went to the White City the present month. Of the total number 50 were deadheads so far fts railroad fare is concerned. But esti mating the average expense to be 6o0, this would roil up the maguilicedt sum of $23,500 paid for sight seeing. If Wiufred, Went worth and Ramona cop tributed one-third as many more the total drain on the county would be not fees than 830,000 This bespeaks not only well to do but an intelligent and ob serving class of people. We have the following to trade for Lake county farming lands: A good livery, feed and sale barn a good' fuel bus'ness that did $00,000 worth of busi ness last year also a good hotel, livery aud dray business.

Why We Are Hot All Translated—Sin Has Done Its Deadly Work Bnt the Goodness of God Laadeth Unto Repentance. PHE8BYTNRIAN OU0RCH. Text of the evening sermon: Rom# 2:4. "Th» goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance." There are three thoughts here (1) God's goodness, (2) its object, (3) its method of accomplishing itsobj ct. 1. God's goodness. Like all the other divine atributes this is infinite. Shakespeare's words in "Romeo and Juliet" are applicable here: "Mr bounty 1» as boondles* as tha aea, My love as great, The more I give to thee the more I have, .For both are infinite.'• Astronomers have calculated that in in order to reach the sun the inhabitants of this planet would be obliged to travel at the rate of 50 miles an hour, day and night, for llO years. They also tell us that in order to reach the nearest fixed star we must travel at the same rate of speed fifty millions of years. In the light of these facts what a depth and height of meaning there is in the Sacred Psalmist's inspired words: "As the heaven is high above the earth so great is His mercy towards them that fear II irn." No wonder the christian Cowper sings: "When *11 thy mcrcies, O my Got), My rising soul survey®, Trancported with the riew I'm loel In wonder, love and praise. And all the goodness of God to this ruined race culminates and centers in Him "Eighteen hundred years ago was nailed, For our advantage, on the bitter cross." Do we understand this as well as Isaac, who writes: "dee from hi« he«^ hts taan5#», foia feet, Sorrow aud iove How uiintled down Did e'er snch love and sorrow meet Or thorLs compose so rich a crown?" 2. But God's unmeasured goodness has for its object the leading of you and me to repentauce, says St. Paul. What IB repentance? Not what you sometimes think it is. It is not mental agony, it is not self-torture. It is not moauing or mourning over past sins. Some one or more of these exercises of the mind may or may not accompany true repentance according to the tem perament of the iudividual. No two persons have the same spiritual history or the same Christian experience. Some are converted as suddenly as a heavy, bag of sand can be dropped from a! man's badk. Into others' hearts the: light of divine truth makes its way affj gradually as the morning dawn drives awuy the shadows of the night, or act imperceptibly as the bag, just men tioned, is lightened of its contents when the sand runs out through a small hole in the bottom. Do not be frightened, by the word repentance. It denotes a change, such a change as a sensible man man makes when he is convinced that u certain course of conduct and life he is persuing is wrong. He drops the wrong and chooses the right for ever more. "Repentance unto life is a saving grace whereby a sinner out of a true sense of his sin aud apprehension of the mercy of God in Christ, doth, with grief and hatred of his sin, turn from it unto God with full purpose of aad endeavor after, new obedience." 3. And all God's mercies, life, health, home, friends, books, schools, the land of light and liberty in which you live, the countless opportunities you have for self-development and for well doing, the word of God, the great salvation brought so near to you, all these are designed in gen tieness and love by Him who leads and never drives to bring you to such an abandonment of sin aud such an ac ceptance of the Divine Redeemer. Can anyone "despise the riches of such good ness and forbearanoe and long suffer ing?" M. E. CHURCH. Sabbath morning sermon. Subjeot, "Elijah's Translation." Text, II, Kings, 2-11. 1. The spectacle. It is believed that God had given Elijah some previous in timation that he should escape death. (I Kings, 19 3,4.) He is now oonscious that the time of his "departure is at hand." He goes from Gilgal to Bethel, from Bethel to Jericho, thence to Jor dan, and beyond. Elisba is determined to accompany him, and his purpose pre vails. He is encouraged to ask for some thing from his spiritual father, and wisely chooses "a double portion of thy spirit." Elijah answers, "thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when 1 am taken up from thee, it shall be so unto thee." Then, while they were talking "there appeared 3 chariot of fire, and horses of fire and Elijah went up by a whirl wind into heaven." There is a great lesson here in angelic ministration The bible does not teach that the spirits of our departed friends hover around us but it does teach that "He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." It teaches distinctly concerning angels, that they are "all ministering spirits^etc." (Heb. 1:14.) It also teaches that, "Behold, He shall come up as clouds, and hiB chariots shall be as a whirlwind, his horses are swifter than eagles. Elisha received a double portion of Elijah's spirit, "of prophecy, wisdom, courage, faith and grace." Though naturally an inferior to his predecessor, ho accomplished more in his 60 yean of service. 2. The illustration: Therf Is more here for us than the mere spectacle. Here is God's object lesson, concerning his original plan. It was not his will or purpose that man should enter heaven by way of death and the tomb. If man had withstood the test of Eden, he would have leen translated to heaven, bodily, when his earthly service was completed. It is folly, yea sacrilege to charge sorrow, pain and death to God. Sorrow, pain, labor, death, the curse man brought up on himself. There would perhaps have beeo separations, but by translation, not by death. It is the route our departed have to bike for heaven, that causes the sorrow, sickness, pain and death. The disciples wept when Christ was separated from them by the way of the cross, but when he parted from them again and was "carried up into heaven," they "returned to Jerusalem with great joy." Remember, sin, not God, brought sorrow and death. 3. The prophecy. "For"this purpose the Son of God was manifested, hat he m:g!:t destroy the works of the devil." So, Christ is doing, and will complete it. Finally, the4ast enemy, death, shall be destroyed. In every dispensation God has given instance, to preserve' the faith of his people in his stupendous prim ise. Enoch, Elijah, Chr at. By and by the miliious that then people the earth, "shall be caught up together with them (the resurrected) in'the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the lord." Our present ministering angels, then our escorting angtls, coachmen and footmen. Our horses and chariots of war will then be. come the vehicles of our heavenly transit* Its coming! Christ is conqueror! "Wherefore comfort one another*with these words." ______ When a doctor considers it necessary to pre3cribe sarsaparilla, he simply or ders a bottle of Ayer's, knowing full well that he will obtain thereby a surer and purer preparation than any other which the drug store can furnish.
