The above young man was once a resident of Aurora. He is probably out of job and want a place to stay the winter ont He was a thin, fragile young preacher but not half so helpless as he looked. He could see and hear what was going on, even during the last prayer. Just I. fore the very closing service be said calmly but with a good deal of iinpres siveneea to the square inch: "Those of the congregation that did not get their things all on daring the prayer, can do so while I pronounce the benediction."

Tb Beeaaia -Ihmium l .41 king-era fully na rtowlaf tha Pint, The Royal Arcanum have a reputation of entertaining royally whenever they attempt anything and it is a sure indication that an entertainment will be good as soon as it Is announced under the asasplces of the Royal Arcanum. This fact beside the one that , the Slay ton Jubilee singers have a fine local reputation called oat a flK) house at the Chronicle Hall last evening and of the four hundred who attended not one went away dissatisfied with the concert In the early part of the winter this same company was in DeKalb and gave a concert for the benefit of the school library. They gave such universal satisfaction that all who heard them then were anxious to listen to them again and nrged their friends to do likewise. This was the cause of the large house on an evening that closed such a disagreeable rainy day as yesterday. ' The opening chorus was rendered with all the vim and melody that seven good darky singers and a fine pianist could make possible. A Jubilee song "Put on the Golden Sword" the solo parts taken by Mr. Washington, followed and was a typical Jubilee selection abounding in the rolicking musical passages that delight all. Hearty encores followed every number and responses were graciously given. Another Jnbilee song followed the first. Miss Palmer, the little lady, who won laurels in their first concert, was anxiously waited for by all who had heard THREE CABINET LADIES. ber, and as she gave as a solo ' 'Steal Away," a pin could have dropped and startled the audience so completely were they carried away by her melody. Her voice is bell like in clearness and has a remarkably high range and the strong pure notes roll ont with apparently no effort. Her solos do not lack in expression but the conscious work to reach a high note is very conspicuously absent Miss Palmer was not in good health last night but she responded to encores two and three times whenever she appeared. "Roll Jordan. Roll," with the bass In a pleasing role, was the next selec tion. One of the characteristics of the Jnbilee songs is their low and soft repeats, and the one at the close of this was particularly harmonious. Miss Brown was not in good voice when she was here before, and her solos l&ftt night were much more popu lar than in her first appearance. She sang "Swinging on the Gate" and other similar selections and was repeatedly encored. Her "Happy, happy, happy days befo' de waw" brought ont much negro dialect and made a decided hit Everybody enjoyed listening to Miss Brown's full, contralto voice. Other Jnbilee songs closed the first part of the program and the second part opened with a piano solo by Mr. Borch. The execution was fine and he respond ed to a well deserved encore. After a pretty duet and ensore by Misses Clark and Brown, Mr. Robinson Introduced some hu morns specialties. He gave the musical barbershop, doing the shaving, hair cut and the ether' necessaries by the most skillful shall in of bones. Then he was the whole brass band giving a reproduction of four pieces playing together with only a csne and his vocaf apparatus to aid kiln. He ws decidedly clever in all be at tempt -L A whistling solo and bird dtf imitations by Mr. Waxhinj.'ton was soother taking number.

A number by the male quartette closed the second part of the program Tim third rart consisted of Planta tion melodies. Jubilee onga, choruses. and solo and completed a most envl lent program. "Ding Dong Bfl" is a favorite wherever the company appears and Is always finely rendered.; "My Louisana Loa" was given by special re quest and was one of the imwtMtm factory numbers on the program It was arranged osneciallv for the Juhilee - K singers. Although the company have made two trips to DeKalb. they bar1 mt worn out their welcome. If they come next year with anew program they will be listened to just as eagerly, i How to Get to the County Heut. Messrs. IL D. Wagner and O. D. Mer-rill, having business In Sycamore one day last week and having to go by rail on account of the bad roads, wondered if they could come back by way of Au rora and catch the 5:50 train for Him-k-ley the same day.

Rick ert, of Hinckley, left Sycamore at tha same -time, with the same desire in view. Mighell, Wagner and Merrill were born" pedestrians and as it required considerable activity to get from station to station on time, Sheriff Rickert, with his 220 pounds, puffed and snorted like a pinched locomotive. bnt he got there just the same, all land ing in a seat In Tommy Flynn's train for Hinckley, well satisfied with their inspection of eight stations and the rail ways hit In eight hoars time.

Newspaper men are blamed with a lot of things they cannot help, such as using partiality in mentioning visitors. giving newa abont some folks and leav ing others out, etc. The editor simply prints the news he can find. Some people inform him of such things and others do not An editor should not be expected to know the name and resi dence of all your uncles, sisters, aunts and cousins, even if he should see them get off and on the train. Tell us abont them and when yon have visitors from abroad send ns word Small debts are what blight the general business of the country. Every storekeeper, as well as the printing office, has a large number of small debts on the books, and when it is remembered, that the aggregate amounts to hundreds of dollars snd that it comes oat of the profits of tbe business, it can readily be seen why th small debt system of the country fi Ares largely In discouragements and Ms of the trade.

There will be grand mass meeting in Chronicle hall tonight All citizens irrespective of social condition, having thewellfare of DeKalb at heart, are requested to attend. The meeting will be addressed by Cbas. Dold, the celebrated Chicago orator, and others. DeKalb is experiencing it first labor j commotion, and while It seemed a few 1 days ago, when fifty members withdrew . , from tbe local union, the affair wonld be settled, bnt it now seems certain that la campaign of "education' is opened. There can not be any objection to those men meeting and discussing the labor situation in general ana the local situs tion in particular, so long as law and order and good sense dominate the, meetings. There has been no disposition to permit anything but a temperate discussion of the difficulty, and those in charge say that this course will be , persned to the end, Labor organization in ' tbe hands of intelligent conservative men have been a positive protection to 1 labor, bnt when dominated by wild-eyed blatherskites they have only served to injure those who have been connected with them. The right of labor or capi ' ta! to an open market will not be qnes- '' tioned by any true American. Unlaw t ful combinations of labor or capital are ; twin evils, both born of tbe same desire i and are alike dangerous to peace and prosperity. About the curfew law agitation in several neighboring towns the following technical analysis of the matter by a 'Young America" to whom the law would apply makes good reading. The youngster says: "Oh, I guess its all right, bat it would be a sight better, if it took in pa and ma and the rest of ' the family. Ton " he continued, "its going to be on me when pa is at the lodge, and ma is playing progres sive euchre, and sis is at a dance, and .

If they had s made it for pa and ma just as well as for me, I'd get along with it all right but yon bet I ain't going to stay in the ' house alone, enrfew or no curfew."
