He was j baTe tailed for Europe on that day. q01 Walker bai been a prominent figure B Vermont life tince 1862 in which year J graduated from Middlebnry College tbe uniform of a first lieutenant, hav-jne bat a few days before been chosen for that position in Co. B, 11th Term on t Tolnnteers. His army record is a good one. He was promoted regularly and on June 2-ttb, 1864, when bat a little more than 22 years of age be was a major and t rear later was brevet ted Heat-colonel for gallantry in battle. Later he published an interesting book of reminiscences entitled "The Vermont Brigade in tbe Shenandoah Valley." Of his career the Springfield Republican says editorially: Tbe sudden death of Aldace F. Walker takes away a man ol prominence in tbe railroad world and a lawyer of high attainments. He is best known as one ol the original members of the interstate commerce commission, who, with Judge Cooley, bad most to do with patting the jniportant federal legislation of 1887 into working order; later as the choice of large railroad interests to manage the trunk-line traffic association, known as the "gentlemen's agreement;" and more recently receiver and then chairman of the board of directors of the Atchison railway system. Mr. Walker was successful in all these different employments, proving him to be a man of large and varied ability. He was a native of Rutland, Vt, born in 1 842, the only son of a Congregational clergyman, and graduated from Middlebnry college in 1862. i x x i At the close of tbe war Col. Walker studied law in New York city and practiced there some time, later removing to his native place, where he became prominent in railway litigation, and as counsel for the Vermont and Canada road he made a notable fight against the Smith or Central Vermont ring in its efforts to swallow the former line without paying anything for it. It was at Rutland practicing law that President Cleveland fonnd him when the duty arose ot making np the commission to administer tbe interstate commerce act. Col. Walker was one of the two republicans chosen, was highly indorsed at the time and amply proved tbe fitness of the appointment. The big railroad interests of the country very soon thereafter discovered bis capacity and managed there-alter to appropriate his services. He was a friend of Senator Edmonds who doubtless was influential in drawing Mr. Cleveland's attention to him. He was at one time a member of the Vermont Sen-ateand shaped tbe legislation creatmgthe state railroad commission. Col. Walker was a man of large frame, six feet tall, broad-shouldered and stout of figure, and it was said at the time that in point of appearance at least he would be taken as the head of the interstate commission. Ever since his appointment to that position he had been an occasional contribu tor to magazines on railway and other subjects, bis latest article relating to the isthmian canal project. The funeral was held at Rutland Monday and was one of the largest ever known in the state. Among tbe honorary pall bearers were several prominent is the state and railroad affairs. Death f Old VermBlcn ia California. The San Francisco Chronicle of March 31 contains announcements of the death of Boratio M. Templet on, March 29, and that of Leander G. Cole, March 30. These men were natives of Vermont. Mr. Templeton was a son of the late Horatio Templeton of Worcester. Three sisters are living in the latter place, a brother in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and another in Omaha, Nebraska. Mr. Cole formerly lived up the Branch. Of him the Chronicle says: Cole came to California from bis native state, Vermont, in 1851.

Returning to America in 1870 he took np his residence in this city and began speculating in real estate. He died possessed of a considerable fortune. Several years ago he had a stroke of paralysis, and since that time he has attended to little or no business. He partly recovered from his first stroke and hope was entertained that he would wtirely recover, when the second shock came and rendered him perlectly helpless. For the past few weeks his death has been expected at almost any time. In the early seventies Cole took quite an active interest in nolitics and was elected to serve one term as a member of tbe city council but politics was not to his liking and he refused renomination. He leaves no relatives on this coast except a brother, Daniel T.

In the company was Mrs. John A. Logan, and many representatives of Gen. Logan's old comrades. Addresses were delivered by President McKinley and Cbaunccy A. Depew. The statue of Gen. Logan is of bronze and is 14 feet high, tbe figure being twice life size. The general is represented riding along a line of battle with sword in hand and his horse at a trot. On its west face is a group representing Gen. Logan in consult ition with the principal officers of the army of tbe Tennessee. In tbe group are included Gens. Dodge, Hazen, Slocum, Leggett, Mower.

At the Catholic educational conference at Chicago last week Dr. Conaty of the Catholic University at Washington said: Tbe Catholic church spent last year in tbe United States tbesumof $25,000,000 on education, chiefly in parochial schools and exclusive ot what was spent in academic, colleeiate and university educa tion. Notwithstanding tbe serious de mand made on ber for cburcb and chant- able development, she has under her educational training over 1,000,000 pupils. Of these about 10,000 bave received collegiate instructions under her direction. Mgr. Conaty contended that a most important issue in Catholic educational work is in tbe development ot the Uatn- olic bigh schools, which are tbe necessary links between tbe parochial schools and the Catholic colleges. The tendency to add college work to the high school course and thus make an easy step to tbe university or to business ltte presents a serious problem to tbe college and demands consideration. If tbe taieb school movement be over looked or neglected the parochial school system is in danger of becoming a feeder for tbe public high schools, tbus leading its graduates to tbe non Catholic college or university. Mgr. Conaty closed with a strong appeal to the colleges to be loyal to one another and loyal to the university. Dr. Goodwin Beaigaa.

"Walking with God implies talking witb God. You would not call a man your companion if you never spoke to him. That is a good old phrase, 'Our walk and conversation.' " "When two walk together, one is always tbe leader, the other the follower. There is no walking with God if you want to choose the way." Getting near to Christ is not all on our own side ; as we draw near to bim, he also draws near to us. He is even more willing to receive us than we are to come unto him; and all are heartily welcome witb him. SELECTIONS. If through the communication of the Holy Spirit tbe life of Christ is constantly imparted to ns, that life will prevail in us. In proportion to the closeness of our abiding in bim will be the completeness of our deliverance from sinning. A. J. Gordon, D. D. To be a public representative of Christianity is a mockery and hypocrisy unless it is accompanied with growing faith in Jesus and fellowship with him. Those wbo teach must not only have learned, but they must go on learning. The power of public testimony depends on intimacy with Jesus in secret. We sometimes forget that true nearness to God is a moral and spiritual nearness .... There we're those in the time of Christ who were near him, but were not helped by him. "The mul titude throng the:, and press thee, and sayest thon, Who touched me?" said Peter once; but only one poor woman was near in her sense of need. . . . . Spiritual distances are not thus measured. SUGGESTED HYMNS. Holy Ghost, with light divine. Take time to be holy. Aa lives the flower within the seed. Blessed Saviour, ever nearer. Nearer, my God, to thee. O I love to talk with Jesus. Here and There. A Northerner who recently visited West era Florida reports that the negroes of that section ot tbe state are unanimous in their opposition to its proposed annexation to Alabama. Tbey say that they do not like the climate of Alabama, which they believe to be unfaealthful, and they seem to believe that if Western Flor ida should be annexed to the state which it borders a marked change of climate would ensue. The following letter, written bv a woman in Kansas, has been received by the Philadelphia Police Department: "Chief Police, will you see the woman whose name is in the inclosed advertisement, i will settle with her for $500. Sbe has a medicine which she says will Remove hair from the face, i sent her one doller and got a bottle of the medicine, i had some fuz on my face, i used the medicine and it burnt my face and now i bave got a Heavy beard the doctor say t will have whiskers now all my life, if she will give you $500 i will take it and say nothin against the woman." "It was a dry season in China," writes a Peking correspondent of the Chicago Times-Herald. "The viceroy, Earl Li Hung Chang, was calling on the Ameri can minister, Mr. Conger, and he spoke of tbe weather.- 'Yes,' said Mr. Conger, it seems to be dry everywhere. It is dry in my country, too. I read in one of our newspapers the other day that in many places in the West the people are praying ; for rain.' 'What,' said the earl, 'do your people pray to their God for rain ?' 'Oh, yes, said the minister, 'they otten pray lor rain.' And does their Uod send it when they pray for it ?' asked the earl. 'Yes, sometimes their prayers are answered, and sometimes tbey are not.' 'AH the same like Chinese joss, hey ?' said the earl, with a grin and a chuckle." Agustus : B. Wvlde, in his "Modern Abyssinia," describes an interesting cus tom observed at Yeiiu, by which a lone engagement is brought to a happy ending. The betrothed pair go secretly to tbe outskirts ol a village. The man hides himself, and tbe girl shrieks. The first man who comes to her rescue is speared by her sweetheart. The couple may then go home and be married, tor moral sentiment demands that every oriciegroom snouia nave killed bis man.
