A g:ood name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than tlic day of one's birth. it is l)etter to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart. Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart irmade better. The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth. It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise .than for a man to hear the song of fools. For as the crackling of thorns under a pot so is the laughter of the fool; this also is vanity. Surely oppression maketh a wise man mad; and a gift destroyeth the heart. Better is the end of thing than the beginning thereof; and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in siiirit. Be not hasty In thy spirit to be angry for anger resteth in the bosom of fools. Say not thou, What is the cause thai the former days were better than these? for thou dostnot enquire wisely concerning this. church. 'The Man of the World," one of his essays was the subject of his address. Most of the people whq remember him say that they were too young and that the speech 'shot over tJieir heads.' It Is known that he was not a very imposing speaker. "John Plerpont, a Unitarian Clergyman writer of verse, and author of 'Warren's Address *at Bunker Hill, came to Lawrence for the dedication of the nuditorium of the Unilari&u rhurch in 1S60. He is said to be the first mnn who ever applied th» 'strawberry epigram' to the scene from Mt. Oread. Hn said: 'God might have made n more beautiful scene than this from Mt. Oread, but he never did.' An inleresting feature of the visit of Bayard Taylor, who cnrae to Lawrence in 1886 to talk on House Architecture, was the attempt of the town people to show Tayloi* the beautiful houses. There happened to b2 but one striking bit of domestic nrchitecturt in Lawrence so the rccoptlon committee conceived the bright Idea of riding around the town and incidental ly going past this particular house several times. FinaKy after the house had been pointed oat to him about half a dozen times as one of ^he prettiest houses in the town Taylor offered the remark: 'What an extraordinary likeness there is to your domestic architecture.' Other famous men and women whc isited Lawrence in her early days were: "Rev. Robert CoUycr, one of the founders of the V. S. Sanitary Commission who came hern la September 1863, after Quantrell's raid to distribute aid. He spoke at the Unitarian church. ".\nna K.

Anybody who will take the trouble, also, can see with half an eye that on the average the delivery wagon of the busiest store is idle hialf the time, while many others are idle much more than half the time. But they cost Just as much when they are Idle as when they are busy. Now therefore, why does not some llnancial genius go to these merchants and BOX^ "Sell your horses.

In a recent "Chapel Talk'; before the students of the University Vice- Oancellor W. H. Carruth called the Toll of the famous men who have visited Lawrence and the University. . The talk was a vivid and interest- liig- reminder of many episodes in Kansas history and deserves a wider audience than it had. The story began with Horace Greeley who came to Lawrence overland from the famous Republican convention at Osawa- tdmie in 1859. "He was met," said Prof. Carruth, "by a reception committee headed by Thaddeus Prentice. These men waded through the mud and water, for it was" a' wet time, out to Waukarusa creek to meet tfie famous editor, who came overland. Prentice had seen to it that every member of the reception committee had a copy of the* New York Tribune and each man had the paper pinned on his coat front. Greeley was 'put up' at the Eldrldg* hotel and before the banquet which was being given in his honor, was' ready, wearing his muddy boots he walked into the dining room and asked for something to eat. He had to be almost smothered by the committee in order to get him out of the room. H" spoke from the balcony of the hotel. "The diary which Greeley kept on his trip through the west was full of amusing statements. Some of these are as follows: " '.May 23. Leavenworth—Rewms and bells and baths make their last appearance. '"May 24. Tor-eka—Beefsteak and wash bowls, other than tin, last visible. Barber ditto.

"fntrcflt me not 0 leave thee, or to return from fol- owing after thee: for whither thju ^oest, I will go; and where thou lodg- •st I will also lodge: thy people shall be my people and thy God my lod." Probably at this time It wjll be well 0 have a sermon especially for the ;hurch members who are not attend- ng church services and are thereby missing the oral sermons. For the benefit of those who are lot familiar with the account of Ruth ind Naomi, we will briefly relate the story. Naomi with her husband and wo sons in time of famine in Judah •emoved temporarily Into the land of Moab. After moving into the coun- ry of the Moabites,"her husband died, and her sons married two of the Women of that country. .Not long after heir marriage, both of the bons died, eavlng Naomi, the Jewish woman, .vlth her tow Moabitish daughters-in- aw, Orah and Ruth. She thereupon lectded to return to the prosperous and of Judah, and kissed Orpah and luth goodbye, and bade them to re- urn to their people and she would go jack to her people. They both hesi-' •ated, but Orpah finally kissed her ind went to the bouse of hei* own peo- nle. But Ruth had learned to look up- m her.husband's people with such an )recIatlon and admiration of their •oiisistent and constant religious life •hat ^t developed In her, such a lo%e or her new mother that she felt she :ould not give her up, but must cling 0 her. So she refused to bid her ulleu and snld: '•Entreat me not to • ave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, 1 will go: and where thous lodgesi, I vlll lodge: thy jieople shall be iny leople and thy God my God." Together they traveled to the land >f Judah, where Ruth was received with splendid admiration, and was slowed to glean In a fruitful fleld, vhich she did with devotion and won 'or herself a happy and prosperous home with the people that -she now •onsidered her own, and became the ;reat-grandmother of the great and good King David, the forefather of -lur Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. N'ot every person, can be as famous as Ruth or David. Not every person can Se^a King. But every person cdn flll 'lis particular station in life with the very same faithfulness and devotion, that will bring to hl.m the same, domestic, social, and spiritual blessedness, which they enjoyed, and give the children of his house, and the associates of hid life the same b-snediction which came to the people of Judih through the holy lives of these persons. 1 I wonder what we are doing for th% draroli th|tt-ruriU«]ie« Q<ur gitrtetUn ' A Friend in >ecd. jr near-head of another .Nation, to re- My Dear Editor:— turn the call within an hour or two.

So sinners seeing the backslidden clnirch members returning to the service of our Christ, sometimes almost unbidden come with pathetic plea asking to be made one with us, Ihot they may follow after us, and live us Christians live and die as Christians, die. "How much more might they come If earnestly entreated, instead of, like Naomi going down to their manner of life we tell them goodbyo as we attempt to extricate ourselves from their association. IJ^ank God Ruth comes along although unbidden and entreated not to come. But who knows how readily and joyfully Orpah would have come also if kindly and earnestly invited or even made to feel welcome. Is your life and mine a constant invitation to people to be better and hoppier, to attend church services and be saved, or are we in our lives living a continuous entreaty by our in ictive lives, to people, to-return jnd not follow our ways but to seek more congenial as.sociations with the v>rorld- ly and sinful?
