A ret>orter for the Itegister in his daily, rounds yesterday happened rup- on a group of men, all of whom have lon^ since passed the half century mark in point of age. The recent death of Nelson P. Aeers. doc of the central figures in all public spirited enterprises for the good of the city, calls 'to mind many IntereistinK events of the days when tola was a village of about one hundred inhabitants. - One member of the aforementioned group told of an instance In the life of Mr. Acers. then a young attorney, struggling for popularity and a livelihood. A home talent entertainment "had been arranged for and .Mr. Acers bad consented to take the part of a black face comedian. The entertainment was given in the old court house building which stood on the comer now occupied by the Shannon hardware store. In the front row of chairs waa seated "Aunt Sally Todd," an elderly colored lady, who will be remembered by the older residents as a town character. Up to this time "Aunt Sally" had never seen a white man impersonate a negro, and when Mr. Acera appeared upon the platform she wasr seized with a hysterical fit of laughter and fell to the floor. It was some time before she was revived.

Methodist Church Waa Oenerally Ben- anted by 8p•eia^ Meetings. C. V. Dennis, who furnished tlie press with accounts of the revival which closed at the M. SS. church Sunday night, has the following to say In B summary of the results of the meetings: Rev. Hamilton who has been assist- Ing the pastor Iti carrying on this series of meetings preached directly to the converts. He outlined to them !how they could know that they were children of God. If they loved God and their ^ellowman and earnestly desired to follow the. teachings of Jesus Christ, then they need not fear nor donbt. Three of the cardinal principles of Christnanity are. Faith. Hope and Ijove. In heaven we will have no use for faith and hope, as heaven is their full fruition, but love abldeth through all eternity. At the close of the sermon Rev. Mason talked earnestly in regard to the converts Joining the church. He told them that while he preferred the M. |E. church, they might prefer some other. He urged them to Join some religious organization. Many came forward and Joined the church, and many came and knelt at the altar. Twelve persons were converted. During the meetings over one bun dred persons have been at the altar, !!eck!ng pardon for their sins. Most of these were converted. Sixty or more of these have or will Join the Methodist church One of the features of this meeting has been the cottage prayer meetings. These have done much good in keeping up the spirit of the revival] It is proposed to continue these prayer meetings in different parts of the city. The meetings have lasted Just Ave wcpks.

IG.—The sugar beet growers In the MIsslsalppI valley, and states of. the west generally, will be Interetted to know that there arc Indications of an agreement upoii a compromise Philippine tariff proposition which will affect the imtwrts of sugar from the Philippine Islands. That this agreement will be satls- factoi'y is shown by the attitude of some of the senators and representatives on the ways and means and Philippines committee who, in the session and former congress, vigorously opposed the passage of the Philippine tariff bill nmking rediictiohs of duties on sugar and tobacco from the islands. The exact terms jof the compromise have not been determined upon, but in general they contemplate limiting the imports of sugar, and posslbiy of tobacco, from the Pblllppinea: The provision will be practically the same aa those contained in the Philippines tariff law that failed two years ago. They will provide for the free entry in to the United States of all Philippines products with the exception of sugar, tobacco and rice, upon which 25 per cent of regular tariff rates will be collected for a period of three years, when all imports from the islands will come in free. It has l>een proposed that the Importations of sugar be limited to 400,000 tons a year, and It is opposed that 'a limit somewhere near this amount will be fixed. It Is also po»- sible that he importations of tobacco may be limited. ' 10 CESTS TO STOP THAT ITCH How Easy to Uet Belief—Instant Re- ifef—From 8kla Disease.

Ui>«l>tion In the Getty CRNr Says Tbey Mar He Prodnced. Topckii, Dec. Ki.—The supreme court yesterday filed its written opin- lou In tho case of Senator Janioit K. (telly against the county clerk and thi> probate Judge of Wyandotto county for a preemptory writ conipelling them to submit the l>allotK cast at the Novemlior election to a recount. Last Sttliirday the court denied the writ. The opinion filed yesterday gives the court's reasons for its denial. In its syll.ibus the court holds: The provision of the Australian ballot law to the effect that In cases of contested elections packages of ballots which have been sealed up and deposited with the county clerk shall be opened only In open sessiorf of the contest tribunal, is not unconsll- tuUonal, because not within the scope of the title to the act The provision referred to forbids tho opening of such ballots in a proceeding for the taking of dc|K>siUons before the probate judge preliminary to the trial of a contested election to the office of senator. The concluding part of the opinion, which carries the meat, follows: Although the senate may establish its own rules of evidence, it does not seem probable that It should desire to determine the right to participate in Its membership upon other than what wisdom and experience show to be the best evidence. No description of the form of contents of ballots, and of the packages containing them, could (lossibly supply all the evidence which the ballots and packages themselves would furnish. There is no provision In the act for taking and authenticating copies and copies could never equal the originals. There Is nn obstacle or difficulty in the way of the production of the ballots themselves before the senate by the official custodian (if them. It won't be long until you can say to your acquaintances, "Today is tho shortest day in tho year." December 22 holds that distinction, and December 22 is not far away. As a matter of fact, tho days aro about as short right now as December 22 will be, for they are growing shorter at a* very slow rate, as that data Is approached. December 21, 22 and 23 will be of practically the same length. The evenings, by a peculiar circumstance which only the astronomers on which one can' eat supper at 6 o'- clqck without lamp light."
