PAUL, SUNDAY, FEB. 5, 1882. "God's max," as Guiteau styles himself, is in a fair way to go to the devil. The officers of the Washington jail should be careful to see that Guiteau does not take cold. HJs day for a sore throat is June 30. It begins to look as though the Globe might have to reverse its opinion of the honorable nature of the Nininger failure. The Pioneer Press publishes outrageous falsehoods about a citizen and then retracts the next day and congratulates its victim that owing to the publication he is given an excuse for denying the reportorial lie. This is Hoosier tangle-foot journalism. It was somewhat of a meckery to conclude the sentence of Guiteau with the stereotyped legal phraseology "may the Lord have mercy on your soul. : ' Let liim meet the mercy which he to others showed. It is an insult to the Lord to intimate that he has a sufficient stock of mercy to appropriate any for such a miserable wretch. The proposition to limit the age or number of years in the postal service is a good one. It should be fixed by law that no one should remain in the postoffice service to exceed one hundred years, We need to have our enterprising mail men restored to us to mingle in the active business of life, and the hundred year limitation is a good one. If the law is not made to limit them to one century of service they will try for the second century. By all means let Congress see that do postmaster or postoffice employee is permitted to celebrate his second centennial in the service. Minnesota extends her sympathy to the Eastern and Southern portion of the country. While we are enjoying weather "which is gorgeous in its balminess, the sections of the country named are luxuriating in a first-class blizzard. Washington is enveloped with snow to the depth of eight to ten inches. Baltimore has a trifle of fourteen inches. Old Virginia has a foot of snow on a level throughout her dominion, and drifts of several feet afford the only variations. New York city and State are submerged with a foot or more, the wind still blowing a gale at 2 o'clock this morning and the snow continuing its heavy fall. Freight trains entirely suspended, passenger trains dragging slowly along with three or four engines, and street car trips entirely postponed on a ccount of the weather, is the dismal weather record which comes from the afflicted sections of the country to greet Minnesota on this glorious winter Sabbsuh li.orning. As soon as they can escape the snow drifts, the afflicted people had better postpone trips to Florida, New Orleans and the Bahamas, and come to Minnesota, where the comforts of life can be enjoyed at all seasons of the year. THE DAY FIXED One year, lacking two days, from the time the cowardly assassin plunged the nation into mourning by his fatal shot at the chief executive, will witness the closing act in this wretched murder. It would have been fitting to have executed the assassin on the anniversary of the bloody deed,but unfortunately the second of July this year falls upon Sunday. But for legal impediments it "would have been better to have made the execution more speedy. The sooner the earth can be rid of such a monstrosity as Guiteau the better. His worthless life can now serve but one purpose, and that is as a monumental warning to other emotional or "inspired" murderers. It is a singular combination of circumstances which has given the assassin the lease of life for a year after the commission of his crime. The prolongation of the President's life prevented his trial at the first term of court after the deed ■was committed. Some three months have been occupied in the trial itself and that he may have an opportunity to appear before the court in bane another continuance of life for five months is alloted. This slow process is in marked coatrast with the time occupied by despotic Russia when her Emperor was assassinated. But after all the deliberate manner of the punishment may prove the more effective. There can be no claim that there was a hasty or unfair trial. It cannot be urged that the assassin was pursued with a vindictive spirit. With the exception of the prisoner's conduct, everything has been done decently and in order. The character of the crime was one which merited swift punishment, not so much as a matter of vengeance, but for its restraining influence upon the wicked who survive. The escape of Guiteau from the gallows, by any other process than death, previous to the day fixed for the execution, would be an invitation to a multitude of cranks to walk in his footsteps. Judge Cox's decision in overruling the motion for anew trial was inevitable, just as the decision of the court in bane is certain to be affirmatory. Instead of any injustice being done him, the court has erred in the opposite direction. The case ■was so clear that it is a matter of surprise that so long a time was required to secure a conviction. There should now be no other delays or obstructions. The prisoner and his counsel may go through the motions if it is any gratification, but there can be but one result. If he lives until June 30th he will be hanged by the neck until he is dead, aud the people will say amen, without adding the legal form, may God have mercy on his soul. There is no occasion for the mercy. HYPOOKISY. And why call ye me Lord, Lord, and do no* the things I eayV— St. Luke 6, xlvi. Hypocrisy and lip service differ in this, that the former is the very essence and life of the pretence, while the latter is only one way of feigning to be what one is not. Religious hypocrisy can only exist in a moral and religious community. Among a dissolute people, where vice and sin pass unrebiiked, there is little need of pretence of virftie; crime and immorality do not debar a man from polite society, and why should he feign to be what he is not, when he would gain nothing by it? In the days of the Grand Monarque of France, Louis XIV, and his successor, no man pretended to be virtuous; king and courtiers were alike vile. But in a church going, religious community, where disreputable persons are ostracised from society and places of trust and power, many act the hypocrite to serve their own interests. Some feign to be what they are not, to deceive their fellow men. They fancy that, by making broad their phylacteries, and praying in the market places, they impress observers with a belief in their piety, and that the "odor of sanctity" will cling to their garments. By making loud professions of Christianity they hope tc gain the trust and confidence of their associates. They go into prayer meetings and Sunday schools as a speculation, trusting that the scarcity of the genuine article will make even the spurious a paying investment. There may be other hypocrites, who thus hope to deceive God. They perhaps think that their Creator is a man like themselves, and that he judges from appearances, and they hope by saying "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name, and in Thy name cast out devils," that when they are arraigned at the judgment seat Christ will appear as their advocate. That the work of the hypocrite is for naught, and that his labor brings no satisfactory results is evident to all. The man "who steals the livery of Heaven to serve the devil in," seldom passes for a servant of God. Can a merchant spend the week in lying and cheating, and taking advantage of another to make money, and then by going to church twice Sunday and teaching a bible lesson in Sunday school, expect to be trusted as an honest man? There is probably not an employe in his establishment, from confidential clerk to errand boy, who does Hot hold him at his proper valuation. Every business man in this city is surrounded by a "cloud of witness," who are weighing him daily and give him the character he deserves and no other. Everyman, in his family, is teaching hypocrisy or truth. A son once said: "I will have nothing to do with the bible or churches; my father disgusted me with Christianity. He was a good deacon abroad, but at home he used to browbeat my mother, tyranize over the children, and squeeze the last cent out of a poor man, and then talked about the love of God and the peace of the righteous." A person animated by the spirit of Christ has no need to say "Lord, Lord," or make frequent mention of his growth in grace. A true Christian is recognized everywhere, not by his words, but by his living. Honor, truth and virtue speak for themselves, in the lives of their possessors. What harvest the hypocrite expects to reap from the vile seed he sews is a matter of conjecture. But the sentence of condemnation spoken by cur Savior points out his doom with terrible distinctness. "Woe unto ye scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess." Rev. D. K. Breed's Lecture. Key. D. R. Breed gave a very instructive lecture on the Special Preparation of the Sabbath School Lesson to a large number of teachers assembled in the parlors of the Y. M. C. A. yesterday afternoon. The first aim of the teacher should be to secure an abundance of material for teaching. The time for commencing the study of the next lesson was immediately at the close of teaching the last, while the mind was fre%h and full of the spirit of the one just taught. The several points brought out with reference to this special preparation, were, first; pray over the lesson; second, commit the lesson; third, look well to ever}' word in the lesson, fourth, study the context by making use of a good reference bible. Having given this study to the lesson early in the week, then, fifth, meditate upon the lesson and what you have studied for two or three days, when finally resort to your helps And make the most of them by reading carefully and marking such thoughts and suggestions as you wish to use in teaching^lhe lesson. " The interesting subject, The Lesson Frame- Work, will be the next in his course of normal lectures, and will be given next Saturday at 4:30 p. m. An oi<l Mystery Recalled. A petition for administration was riled in the probate court yesterday with reference to the estate of Benjamin 111--ingsworth, whose mysterious disappearance from this city some years ago formed at that time, a subject for woaderment and conversation. In May, ISC6 Benjamin* Illingsworth, a lad 14 years of age and surrounded fey the comforts of life, suddenly disappeared from his home in this city and his whereabouts and fate have up to this day remained unknown. A few years ago his father died, leaving his estate to several children, share and share alike. The portion of the missing soa amounted to $1,000 and the application for settlement at this late day is made by his brothers and sisters. The petition recites the facts and states tkat it is believed that the young man departed this life shortly after his absence from home. The hearing will take place on the 28th inst. THE SAlffT PAUL SUNDAY GLOBE, SUNDAY MORNING FEBRUARY 5, 1882. TIMELY TOPICS. Mexico has 10,000 Protestant Christians. The Roman Catholic diocese of Albany has been divided, and the See of Syracuse created. The foreign mission fund of the English Presbyterian church bid 6 fair to show a deficiency this year of about $10,000. The Anglo-Chineee college at Foo Chow has secured an eligible location with a substantial building upon it, ready for occupancy. The cost was $14,000. George W. Williams, the colored member of the Ohio legislature, has nearly completed a history of his race in America, upon which he has been at work for over two years. It will be published in the spring. He devotes a portion of his work to the race in Africa, and his history of slavery in the colonies extends from 161S to 1880. He will attempt, also, to prove that there is but one race, and one language and one blood. Much angry feeling was produced in the house recently by the introduction of an unpopular resolution by Mr. Robeson from Mr. Keifer's committee on rules, providing for an enlargement of committees to give the speaker an addilioual chance for favoritism. The resolution was defeated and its defeat was considered a blow between the^eyes to "Bossism" in the house. This revolt against the dictation of a clique augurs well for the future independence of the majority in the house, on both sides of that body. The senate's judiciary committee anti-Mormon bill, provides for keeping off from juries all who practice or believe in polygamy; for debarring polygamous persons from the privileges of voting or holding office; and for making the fact of bigamous relations sufficient evidence alone of violation of the statute against polygamy. Thus it will be seen that the bill takes away the rights of citizenship from polygamous Mormons, and opens the way for sending them speedily to jail. If this bill should be enacted into a law and enforced, it will go a long way towards the suppression and final eradication of polygamy. Judge Hoak, of Massachusetts, in his eulogy on the late Richard Henry Dana, made the following silly remark: "I think if he had been born thirty or forty miles inland, and instead of being — I say it with all respect —an adherent ef the Church of England; had he been the son of a Congregationalist deacon, he would have been the foremost man in Massachusetts." According to the learned Judge Hoar's code, a man must be born forty miles away from Boston, and be the son of a Congregational deacon, to reach the top round of the ladder. Prodigious! New Orleans is infested with c gang of bandits, who garrote their victims in order to steal their valuables. A New Orleans paper reproves these "gentlemen of the road,'' for treating their victims with injurious cruelty. It is enough to be robbed without having damaging, personal violence superadded. Whereupon one of these gentlemanly ruffians addressed a note to the editor, indignantly denying the imputation of violence, asserting that the garroters "handled" their victims "as tenderly a 6 circumstances would permit. 1 ' That is not at all cheeky, but only goes to show how aesthetic these delightful gentlemen are. The Marquis of Lome, governor general of Canada, is nervously fearful lest the tide of emigration setting for Canada may be turned aside to the States. The governor general need have no fears that any attempt will be made to inveigle emigrants away from the Dominion into the States. The volume of emigration to this country is large enough to create apprehension, rather than otherwise, at the rapid introduction of such a large foreign element. We are sure the States will say Lord Lome is welcome to the few thousand emigrants he can induce to settle within the bounds of his Canadian realm. Promiscuous and unlimited handshaking is coming to be regarded as a nuisance in high official positions. Mr. Arthur begins to be restive about it, and it is given out that he seriously entertains the idea of abolishing the manual excercise of digital manipulation at receptions. Let him put on ;bort breeches, knee-buckles silver shoe latchets and elonggated hose, and rnflled shirt bosom and wristlets, a fa George Washington, and in addition imitate the royal bearing of the august "Father of his country," by standing in rigid poise against the wainscot with his hands behind him, and stiffly bow to the plebian crowd as they reverently file past him. The Koman Catholic archbishops and bishops in England and Wales are fourteen, not reckoning those of Sees of Shrewsbury and Southwark which ue vacant. There are also in Scotland six other archbishops and bishops. The priests in England and Wales now number 2,036, serving 1,160 churches, chaoels, and missionary stations; in Scotland there are 295 more, serving 256 chapels, etc., thus showing that both clergy and chapels have doubled in less than twenty-five years. In ISSB there were on^y 749 chapels in England and Wales and IT7 in Scotland, the total of the priests who served them being 1,179. Tize London Pall Mall Gazette, speaking of the poets and poetry of England, says: Byron has largely lost his grip on the tastes of the present day — that he was doubtless a great poet and is mostly admired by critics who are poets themselves — but his verse appears to lack that felicity, that finish that indefinable charm which Mr. Tennyson and Mr. Arnold possess, and which was the gift of Shelley, Keats and Coleridge. What then, asks the Gazette, remains of Byron — what of him is immortal? and replies, we say "Don Juan." That is a modern epic, perhaps the only modern epic — a romantic poem of adventurous life, in which religion, society, morals, manners, all the stuff of an age of the world are represented. The property owned by the "Economites," a religious community founded in 1805 by souk- German Lutherans oa the banks of the Ohio river, half way between Beaver Falls and Pittsburg, is estimated at $40,000,000. Every passing day adds thousands of dollars to this vast estate, and its possessors, who believe in the second coming of Christ, and hold the money to expend it in his glorification when He shall appear once more upon the earth. The affairs of the community are managed by Jacob Henrici, now in his 79th year. But very few people outside of the society know of how many members it is at present com posed, but it is said that sboiild their worldly wealth be divided pro rata among them, each of the members of the society would probably have $1,000,000. Here is a matter not generally thought of, and the Churchman calls attention to it: I; Seven executions in the United States on the ; Feast of the Epiphany this year are a ghastly" commentary upon American disregard of traditions. No judge would appoint an execution for Christmas-Day, though it 6hould fall on a Friday, as Epiphany did this year. The Epiphany is Christmas-Day for all the Sclavonic race, aud it' is a very sacred day for many other people. A judge who can respect tradition to the extent of remembering that Friday is 'hangman's day' should go a little further and consult his almanac in his choice of Fridays. As long as it is pretended that this is a Christian country ench scandals should be avoided." The Rev. W. E. Perm, or, as he is usually known, "Major Perm, the Texas Baptist evangelist," is at present in St. Louis, having come from his home in Palestine, Texas, to purchase a canvass tent 150 feet in diameter, as the one he has is not big enough to cover all the people who drive every Sunday one and two hundred milts to hear him preach, He also proposes to build a "Nickel Church" in Palestine, and stated to a St. Louis reporter recently that "Gould himself could not give more than a nickel, and &hould he offer 10,--000 it would be vcfuspd." So far the ground for the site has been purchased and paid for, $300 being the amount invested. There is only $700 toward building the $10,000 "Nickel Church." The major said That the names and nickels of General Garfiehl and Jay Gould were "on record." Texas sittings: We see it stated that the Texas Methodists have determined to introduce the bible in the public school system. We do not believe such a thing possible on account of the comparative size of the two infctitutions. The free school system of Texas is euch a small institution that it would be as difficult to introduce a good-sized family bible into it as it would be to introduce a number ten foot into a number five boot. If the average Texas free school were enlarged, perhaps the bible, if it were a very young bible, not bigger than a pack of cards, might be crowded into it, but it would be a mighty tight squeeze- There would not be much room left over for anything else. We suppose the idea is that if Texas ever has any free schools, then the Methodists will try to introduce the bible into them. A strange performance took plate recently at Rous Lench, a village in Worcestershire, England. The rector, Mr. Chafy, having visited Ober Ammergau, conceived the idea of illustrating bible history in a series of tableaux vivants, he himself from time to time commenting on the meaning of the successive tableau?. Fifty persons took part in the representations, the personator of Anna the prophetess being an old woman of S3, and that of another character being but 4 years of age. Among these tableaux vivants were the "Expulsion of Adam from Paradise," and a "Vision on the dpitoline Hill;" but most of them consisted of scenes of the childhood and youth of Jesus. No labor and expense had been spared in the preparation of the scenery and dresses, and in training the pei formers, all of whom were parishoners. Ths Detroit Free Press is responsible for the following: The editor of a religious newspaper complains of a correspondent, a clergyman, for sending him letters which have first to be translated for the printer, or run the risk of being mistaken for a broker's cipher dispatch. One of them the much-enduring editor prints to show how much of a vexation to the spirit and a disturber of religious calm the clergy can be when "they take their pen in hand" to furnish their favorite weekly with "items": "Dear Bro Please make room for the following item: The Pres Ch of Xylograph held its an meetg Nov. 4. New eh buildg pd for. The Xof Xt in this eh unusually hopeful— 24 ad last com, 10 let 14 on prof. I inclose $2 on sub. Ch ad of William Jones to Pangatak. Our Sab Sen is flour'g — lOconv. from Bible class. Trs in Xt, Pastor.'" The "s2on Eub," of course, made it more tolerable than it would have been otherwise. Dr. James Fkeeman CLARKE.in his new volume of "Epochs in Religious History ' has a chapter on Luther and the Reformation, in which he gives the following estimate of the character of the German reformer: "The character of Luther had a mountainous grandeur. When near Mont Blanc you perceive the ragged precipices and shapeless ravines which deform it; but as you recede from it into the distance it appears to tower higher and higher above its neighboring summits, its features arc softened by the intervening atmosphere, and melted into strange tints and beautiful shadows, and it stands the object of reverence and wonder— one of the most sublime objects in nature, and most beautiful creations of God. So stands Luther, growing more and more the mark of reverence through succeeding centuries — tne real author of modern libsrty of thought and action, the giant founder of modern civilization, pure religion, and a more widespread virtue than those which earlier ages were capable of producing." Mrs. Gov. Randall, of Wisconsin, is a lady highly educated and accomplished, and of the highest position in refined society. When her husband died several year? ago he left her #15,000 to $20,000, poorly invested. By the advice of a supposed, but false friend, 6he sold her property and invested the proceeds in a cattle ranch in Nebraska. Subsequently, learning that things were going wrong with her interests there, she went to Nebraska, entered upon a pioneer life, assumed a $13,000 liability, ani by pluck and good management now clears $6,000 a year, and her income is constantly augmenting. She i 6 her own superintendent and looks personal ly after every detail of the farm and cattle ranch. In the three years she has managed her property she has never been molested, insulted or interfered with in any manner by anybody. This is a notable instance of female pluck, enterprise, sagacity and success. The attendants of religious protracted revival meetings in Chicago are now dubbed •the Christian army," and all the technical military terms of the camp are applied to them. The "army" has lately been presented with a stand of colors. It is suggested that the "army" be presented also with a battery, probably, to shoot down deserters "who fall from grace." A dignified bishop justifies this mode of Christian work on the ground that the life of a Christian on earth is a "warfare," and that he should be armed and equipped for the militant service of the Lord. Many decline voluntary enlistments into this army, and show stubborn resistence to the attempted draft. Nevertheless the "army" marches valiantly onward, with banners flying, drums beating, the ear-piercinc fife awakening the echoes, scenting the battle rear, and far away, determined to vanquish Apollyon, and hang him to the sour apple trts on the hard fought battle field of the "Christian" appomatox.. John Foster, the devout, whose memory is fragrant in all Christian lands, is authority for the followiQg opinion ia regard to the earthly ministry of celestial, angelic beings: "No fact teyond the limits of our world is more prominent in the declarations of the Bible, than the existence of a high order of intelligences denominated angels. The equivocal and the lower application of the term in a number of instances can deduct nothing from the palpable evidence of the fact. But who and what are angels? Th'; effect of an assemblage of passages relating to them in the Bible, the descriptions, narratives, and allusions, would seem to give an idea widely different from that of stationary residents in particular parts of the creation— an idea, rather, of pc-rpetual ministerial agency, in a diversified distribution of appointments, many of then) occasional and temporary, in the fulfilment of which numbers of them visit or sojourn in this world.*' Tee day annually set aside for prayer for colleges has passed. It is well to have such a day set apart for such a purpose, unle?s the bulk of young college hoodlums are past piaying for. The indecent and riotous conduct of college students is getting to be a marked feature iv college life. The recent smashing of lamps and windows at Princeton is a Bample. The practice of "hazing" is a disgrace to civ. ilization. The drunken orgies, and the strata of dissolute life in most of our colleges should admonish parents of the hazards of college life. Less boat racing and more morality is an element most needed in our higher institutions of learning. The Princeton rowdies who break lamps; the salacious rats of the Burlington, Vermont university, who inveigle young girls to go a coasting, and get them drunk by filling them with wine, will make careful and conscientious parents scrupulous about sending their sons and daughters to honses of ill-repute, yeleped colleges. College faculties teem to present no barrkrs, or to af ford any adequate protection. Oscar Wilde, the soi disant expert in taste .and high art, who is traveling in the United States, and making a laughing stock of himself generally, and who is characterized as an "ungainly, kneebreeched young Englishman," is, with both justice and severity, done for by the Critic, thus: "We doubt if there are any persons in America who take Mr. Oscar Wilde's present venture seriously. If there be such, they should be told that he is a young gentleman of excellent parentage, liberal education, and good parts, who is willing to accept the financial rewards of an absurd notoriety rather than of a legitimate reputation; who is traveling in this country under the management of the same agent that runs the comic opera in which he is supposed to be burlesqued; and who may be said to successfully 'represent' nothing under the heavens save an exceedingly thrifty egotism. Is it not preposterous that such a man should go anywhere—even to the jungles of South Africa — to preach a gospel of 'good taste?' There is much interest excited by the revelations made by the hyeroglyphic readings of M. Revellant, the distinguished Franco-Egyptian scholar, bearing upon the various aspects of the social life and customs of the ancient Eg3'ptiats, which have hitherto been unknown, aLd which supply a missing and very important chapter in the hi6tory of that people. The larger share of this information was derived from legal documents, euch as bonds, contracts, settlements, deeds, etc., and pertained to the living. The London Times, to which we are indebted for the information contained in the first article, has printed a second series of documents which pertain to the Egyptian after he was dead, and these are in no way inferior in interest to the first. These documents are selected from the archives of the Choachyte priests, and to fully comprehend their purport it is necessary to glance at the functions of these priests. The preparation of his sepulchre and the preservation of his mummied corpse were of first importance to every Egyptian, because his religious faith led him to believe that after a certain period of trial he must return to this world again, and that he could only attain eternal rest with Osiris after many periods of probation in this world.

Pond yesterday received a dispatch from Philadelphia, stating that the Illinois, the steamer in which Mr. Slayton, the general agent of the Sioux City road, sailed, had arrived, so that that gentleman is now enjoying British hospitality. The St. Paul & Manitoba road is doing an unusually large land busir.ess considering the season of the year It is pretty early to begin yet, notwithstanding this the immigration has commenced in right down earnest. During the :our days of this month just past Land C jmmissioaer Powers reports the sale of fifty- two pieces of land, averaging 120 acres each. Over 200 letters of inquiry are received daily, a fact which indicates that the Great Northwest is attracting the ittention of people. It may also be sU.ted in this connection that nearly al] these letters of inquiry are from the States, very few of them coming from across the water. This is regarded as quite a change, and something surprising. That people from the East are coming West in such large numbers is one of the signs of the times. According to present indications the great Northwest is likely to have a "boom" this season. The trains that leave the Union depot for tho up country go heavily loaded every day with thrifty settlers, and the roads* are compelled to double up on the sleepers. According to present indications the railroad facilities will have to be multiplied by the time the season fairly opens. A Slap Whack. The proverb sayt that wine is a mocker and it is a lamentable fact that c /en the intellectual or gastric dignity that is supposed to throw its enchanting influence a >out the form of the opera imprtssario is nol yroof against the seductive powers of Dry Monopole or other famous brands of vintage. At any rate to this cause most he ascribed a little unpleasantness that transpired on Wabashav street about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, between Mr. H. B. Muhn. manager of the comic opera company vhose bouffe performances have been eDjoyed by the amusement patrons of St. Paul dv ing the past week, and Mr. H. C. Donnelly the popular proprietor of the sample room adjoining the opera house. Briefly, it was a dispute concerning a wager about ths price of wine, anf;ry words, a 6treet encounter during which the impreesario caromed on Mr. Donne ly's cheek, a warrant for the former's arrest, followed by his release on bail. The circumstances are about as follows: While engaged in discussing a quart bottle of Dry Monopole at Donnelly's i;aloon yesterday afternoon, a dispute arose concerning the price of the wine, the charge being $3.50 per bottle, while Mr. Mann claimtd that other places he only paid $3. A wag* r was made and it was to be decided according to the price charged at the Merchants hotel. Subsequently the bet was declared off and the Me and other tender epithets were exchanged, Mr. Mann being requested to take a walkarov cd the block. About half an hour afterwards '-hey met on the 6treet when Mr. Donnelly remarked that it was good for him, Mann, that a policeman had not been found when the dispute occurred, whereupon the latter extended tis duke with the effect stated. Mr. Mahn ws,6 arrested by Officer Cook and afterwards released.

Emma Abbntc in the Balcony Scene .■ Did not create half the exciterari t among the men and boys of St. Paul as the ;;reat closing out sale of the B. O. P. C. H. is now doing. Haveriy'ij Big 40 is nowhere comj ared witu it, and as to John B. Gough and O3car Wilde, they are not to be thought of. In fact this great sale is the talk of the to/* d, and "The Boston" is crowded daily with eager purchasers who are only too glad to have the opportunity of being waited • on. i Clothing is almost being given away, and go ; clothing at that; no trashy stuff. Rememter this great sale will not last long, as we move into our new store early ' next month, and you must take advantage of it while you can, or you will certainly regret it when it is too late. Boston "One Price" Cix>rnmo House, 43 (new No. 65) East Third St., ' St. Paul. Druggists, attention!

When druggists call to mind that this immense sale is to but cne firm, and that other firms duplicate such orders, they will know that it is to their interest to lay in a goodly supply for the boom tiat is sure to come this spring.
