No matter where it happened. We give you our word. that it did happen, md hope that will be enough. Down a jreen lime in a pretty house lived a young woman with her parents. Two or three other houses were in sight of this one, so that when there was a light there o' nights the neighbors could always notice it. In fact the neighbors did notice it. The drive leading up to the house was near enough so that the neighbors could notice it when the family had company, and the neighbors al ways did notice it. One fine Sunday last summer the neighbors noticed that a sliiny horse with a banged tail turned down the green lane to the farm house. He drew Glory for the Negro. James M. Hubbard tells us in The North American Review of the most [lorious opportunity the American negro Not the least of the wonderful thing , about our great country is the vast variety of weather we can have within its ! bonndariBs ill one day. On tho same day recently there was a terrific wind Stona along the line of the Northern Pacific railroad. Houses were blown down, huge trees were hurled across roads: and fcilway tracks, and telegraph wires .3 thrown down for many miles. At ) same hour in Cincinnati the heaviest } known in years was coming down ojjlbrcibly that it interfered with the ictnc current and burned out the dou- irplley street car motors, Now turn t flash light upon Sioux Falls. S. D. re vthe sun was shining sweetly, and most' delightful Christmas weather ./known prevailed, balmy as the air ! Bmniner. Street sprinklers were out. Reel Cloud's Idea.

We must mind that the Indian's side of has not yet been fairly heard. , loud blames the Indian troubles 'on the Indian department. The ljmreau, attached as it is at pres- e interior department, comes civil government.. That gives , for, no end of personal politics in fiSs|>jjorfioiiuient of the offices and ,_ Q *I|B: * Red ClOtd gives us to under- ,6tand that these agents and officers of ' varipus grkdes are looking out for them- f selves well, making no end of money and tttbg^the Indians starve. Tner&Us another ^ource of trouble. Some of the appointees of the government among the Indians are mission, aries, good men and true. But the dif- icnlty is that they represent several iind,s of, religion—Methodist, Baptist, paker, etc. If an Indian comes to get Bxjrsaand agrieultiiraj tools to a tyletb- Et agent he \yill get a larger pony and 2 abundant supplies if he too "trains ''' behind him a brand new yellow buck board wagon; yes, it was new and yel low, for the neighbors noticed it. In the wagon was a good looking and very wel dressed young man. He was thoroughlj well dressed in the newest English fash ions, for the neighbors noticed hi clothes. What was he going to the farm house for? It was not to see the father and mother certainly, for the neighbors noticed that he and the young woman went driving in the new yellow buckboard wagon. This would have been the regular orthodox thing, only tke young woman had a husband. He was away from home most of the time, but the neighbors knew exactly where he traveled and what his business was. They had noticed his goings and comings. When therefore they noticed the yellow buok- board rides the neighbors were scandalized. 'But after a while the neighbors noticed more things. They saw that the young man came down the green lane still, but he came no more in the wagon. The agent at tho little railway station noticed that he came on the train. He staid all night at the farm house, too, for the neighbors noticed him going away in the morning. The whole country side buzzed like a hornet's nest that ie is the equal of the white man. Not only that, but he can redeem his whole race, civilized and savage, and lift it into the ranks of civilized peoples. The opportunity Mr. Hubbard alludes to is to be found in Africa; tfie work is the redeeming of savage negroes from barbarism and slavery. Mr. Hubbard wonders why our ne- groes do not hasten their feet to take up this magnificent work. Here is a trumpet call for enthusiasm, courage and religious inspiration. Here the negro could meet the white man upon the black man's native soil, and emulate him in all the noble devotion and self sacrifice necessary to redeem a continent. The work of exploring Africa and opening it up to civilization has progressed with marvelous rapidity in the past half century. French, Germans, English, Italians and Americans have sent explorers through the heart of the Dark Continent. Noble men have time and again lost their lives trying to search at (lie office of the company, Iron wood, MichiRiin.AVednesday, Junnary 14.1891, ;it ten o'clock in the forenoon. E. L. BAILEY, Sec.

Am I not my brother's keeper, even to the point of keeping a shady story in circulation about him? A few weeks ago it began to be noticed by the neighbors that the good looking man came to the farm house in the lane no more. They noticed closely, even peering through their blinds in search of the knowledge that is power, but they did not see the young woman herself any more. The appalling faci burst upon them—the young man and woman had eloped. Then these gooij neighbors poured all their noticings, in serial, into tho ear of every newspaper reporter they could find. What a sad world this would be if om neighbors didn't notice all we did! Gen. F. K. 1 Spinner. The treasurer of the United States with the uncounterfeitable signature passed tl?e last years of his life in a camp in Florida for his health. 'With his death passes away one move of tlie few leading men 1'jft to us from the thrilling times of tile war. Unlike many of the others, however, Gen. Spinner lived to a good -old age, thanks to a strong, serene spill. He was 80 years old at the time • of his death. Gen. Spinner was one of the most unobtrusively useful men of the war time. He' started in life as an anti-slavery Democrat, and was elected to congress on that issue. When the Republican party was organized, he joined it and twice served in congress as a Republic out this undiscovered country or to suppress the slave trade. But in every case they have heen white men, aliens in blood and race from those they sought to help. Not one negro has ever volunteered, though there are now in America colored men of both wealth and culture. Why do they not step forward to grasp their great opportunity? This is the question Mi. Hubbard asks. He says: The American negro alone looks on apparently Indifferent to the oppression of fellow negroes to which the tyranny of the European Turk Is mildness In comparison. More than this, we should look to him to be foremost, because experience shows that the black man can do the work better than the white. In the hist half century the Christian missionaries have gathered converts here and there, a few thousands in all, doliiK in many coses a problematical good— "mission boy" being often a term of reproach for oue who is lazy, helpless and false. During the same time black men, part traders, part missionaries, have converted vast populations In north central Africa to Mohammedanism. They have founded among them kingdoms or a high degree of civilization, and the negro under their inliueuce has distinctly advanced In strength of miud and morals. These missionaries, it should ba noted, were quite as much strangers among their African converts as the American negro would have been. So the black traders from the east coast, foreigners still, have gone Into everv part of the Interior, exploring territories in which no white man has yet beim able to - " -THE • Hoisting Machinery, Engines and Boilers. set foot, everywhere becoming leaders of the people—when they have not exterminated them. Has the pmlglit'eueil American negro less force of character or strength of will, less power to influence or to command, than the black half breed .Arab?

In congress he demonstrated that he had a "head for figures!" consequently Secretary of the Treasury Chnse chose him for United States treasurer in the days of Lincoln's first administration and of government greenbacks. He held this office for fourteen years, beginning in March, 1801. The one measure for which Gen. Spinner will always be famous was the introducing of women clerks into the departments at Washington. He did it when men clerks were enlisting in the army, and consequently more help was needed in the treasury than could readily ' be obtained. Tlie treasurer encountered the bitterest opposition to the innovation, but he kept hia head on and curried it through. The only way he preserved the women's places for them safe from the attacks of politicians was to scale down the wages of the female clerks to less than that paid to men in the same grades. Thus the women's offices ceased to be uu object of desire to the patriot with a vote. Erastus Wiman says we cannot coerce Canada to become part of the United States, and tho public sentiment of the Dominion is universally opposed to such union. The only thing left to us, therefore—a tlu'njj which would be of incalculable beuetit to both countries—would be absolute free trade between the tw>. This would develop Canada and add a new outlet to manufactured goods from the United States. Millions upon millions would flow into our pockets annually from reciprocity, for Canada and the United States belong together geographically, and need each other. StockholdfiS 1 Meeting.
