A farewell reception was tendered j Rev. J. W. Barron, soon to take the pastorate of the Dead wood Congregational church, at the home of Mrs. Sarah E. Holcomb in Rapid City Monday evening. During the evening a purse was presented to Mr. Barron, as a token of the love of the Rapid City people for him. To this he responded with a brief address. Speaking of his departure, the Journal says; "Since Mr. Barron came here five and a half years ago he has received 156 into the church, forty-eight of that number being by letter. He has shown himself to be an earnest, painstaking pastor, and the people of the church regret hia departure. They also feel that the Congregational church in Deadwood Is wise in having chosen him aa their pastor." He preached his farewell sermon In Rapid City Sunday. The Journal says of these: "The services Sunday were all Interesting, touching and impressive. Mr. Barron's discourse In the morning was in the nature of a farewell sermon, and abounded In good words appropriate to the occasion. Although not the reg ular time for holding the Liord's Supper, it waa observed as a fitting ceremony, and three members of the Sunday school were received Into mem bership. The other services of he day were eoually toucshlng. In the evening the other churches of the city united with the Congregational lets In listening to the last sermon Mr. Barron would preach as pastor of this church. The church was filled, and besides hear Ing a good sermon the audience listened to some good music. "In the afternoon several membert accompanied Mr. Barron to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Bridge, where communion was partaken of with Mr. Bridge, who Is unable to leave his room. o- PHRASES.

The problem of the unemployed rich Is quite as serioiis as the problem of the unemployed poor. The ways in which the rich can occupy themselves satisfactorily are not many.

The question of how he will fill In Che Idle intervals still Is up to Mm. He cant live by bread alone, nor by gin gerbread either, nor even by swearing off taxes, and in this country of all countries, the Lord help the man who has notihlng to do, because we have no designation wbspeby to dtsttartrish the Idle millionaire from the idle tramp.
