O. Andrews of Sisseton ail dressed them "S bsVmeo a ml Show." Tlii- speaker dwelt cliielly ti]ion the difference be ween substance and show as it appears in our civilization.. Among other things the judge said for a long time he had felt that he present acre is paying too much difference to the visible and tangible things about them, such things as wealth can buy and build and show, and alto gether too little to the causal for ces which create and sustain our physical universe and compose and uphold onr civilization. Leading up to the principal theme, the speaker dwelt at some length upon the invisible forces such as mechanical ener gies. chemical affinities, vital powers and the power of ideas. From this analogy the speaker drew the following conclusions: list as the surface of the globe is composed of various layers of clay, sandstone, slate and granite, which successive geological epochs deposited and which support our steps and uphold on soil, so is the moral and civilized world constructed ol sf ratas of law. customs, opin ions. rut lis. discoveries, princi ples and sentiments which suc cessive generations and races have deposited and on which our souls now live." One of the strongest features of the lecture, as emphasized by the speaker, was the value of character as reflected upon, sustaining and bettering civilization of the present day. Judge Andrews is an old time Dakotan. He came here in 18HI? and has resided in the state ever since. He was judge in the Third judicial district from the tAme the state was admitted to the union until I81K At that time the Third district included what is now part of the Ffth and was considerably larger than it is now. The judge has held court in this city while on the bench. He is now practicing law at Sis seton and is extensively engaged in agriculture in that vicinity.— Aberdeen Daily News.
