DIM MOlNBHi ALQONA, IOWA StORYBTTES. A treat lawyer, %ho is how a great Jddge and has the very highest opinion of himself, stood as a liberal candidate t«f pafliaineht at the general election of 1880. His tory opponent set on foot a rumor that he leas an atheist, whereupon Henry Smith remarked: "Now, lhal's really too bad, fot -^— is a man .Who doe's reluctantly acknowledge the existence of A Superior Being." The well-known English Journalist, ^Tighe Hopkins, began his literary ca- i-eer as an all-round man on a local newspaper. One day an article on the agricultural outlook was required. Mi 1 . Hopkins protested that he knew nothing of farming and had not time to interview the farmers. "What books have you here?" was the sharp inquiry. "A Bible, Shakespeare, nnd Nuttall's bictionai-y." What more do you want?" returned the chief coolly. "Go ahead with the leader. Queen Victoria, some years ago, when she visited a certain sisterhood, desired the superior to show her the place just fts an ordinary visitor, and njt to treat her as queen. The superior agreed, and proceeded to conduct her majesty all over iho building. The queen was much interested, but observed that wherever they went the sisters courlesied. At last she remarked to her guide: "I thought I made you understand that I wished to be treated as rn ordinary visitor? Why, then is every one courtesying?" "Pardon me, madam," replied the mother; "you have been obeyed. The reverence shown by the sisters was not intended for their Qiicen, but for me, their superior." A FAMOUS ROUGH RIDER.

"VFUdom Crloth Without; Shs ttttereth il«r Voice In the Street*"—Pro*. 1:80 —An btoqnont Appeal to All Goad Splrllol Cbrlstlitua. We are all ready to listen to the rolces of nature—the voices of the mountain, the voices of the sea, the voices of the storm, the voices of the star. As in some of the cathedrals in Europe, there Is an organ at either 'end of the building, and the one instrument responds musically to the other, so in the great cathedral of na- tui j, day responds to day, and night to night, and flower to flower, and star to star, in the great harmonies of the universe. The spring time Is an evangelist in blossoms preaching of God's love; and the winter is a prophet white bearded — denouncing woe against our sins. We are all ready to listen to the voices of nature; but how few of us learn anything from the voices of the noisy and dusty street! You go to your mechanism, and to your work, and to your merchandise, and you come back again—and often with how different a heart you pas-j through the streets! Are there no things for us to learn from these pavements over which we pass? Are thero no tufts of truth growing up between these cobblestones, beaten with the feet of toil and pain and pleasure, the slow tread of old age, and the quick step of childhood? Aye, there are great harvests to be reaped; and now I thrust In the sickle because the harvest is ripe. "Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in tho streets." In the first place, the street Impresses m e with the fact that this life Is a scene of toll and struggle. By 10 o'clock every clay the city is jarring with wheels, and shuffling with feet, and humminc with voices, and covered with the breath of smoke-stacks, and a-rush with traffickers. Once in a while you find a man going along with folded arms and with leisurely step, as though he had nothing to do; but for the most part, as you find men going down these streets on the way to business, thero is anxiety in their faces, as though they had some errand which must be executed at tho first possible moment. You arc jostled by those who have bargains to make and notes to sell. Up this ladder with a hod of bricks, out of this bank with a roll of bills, on thii dray with a load of goods, digging a cellar, or shingling a roof, or shoeing a horse, or building a wall, or mending a watch, or binding a book- Industry, with her thousand arms and thousand eyes, and thousand feet, goes on singing her song of work! work! work! whik- the mills drum it, and the steam-whistles fife It. All this is not because mer love toil. Some one remarked: "Every man is as lazy as he can afford to be." But it is because necessity with stern brow and with uplifted whip stands over you ready whenever you relax your toil to make your shoulders sting with the lash. Can it be that passing up and down these streets on your way to work and business you do not learn anything of the world's toil, and anxiety, and struggle? Oh, how many drooping tiearts, how many eyes on the watch, liow many miles traveled, how many iiirdons carried, how many losses suffered, how many battles fought, how many victories gained, how many defeats suffered, how many exasperations ndured—what losses, what hunger, what wretchedness, what pallor, what disease, what agony, what despair! Sometimes I have stopped at the corner of tb.3 street as the multitudes went hither and yon, and It has seemed to be a great pantomime, and as I looked upon it my heart broke. This great tide of human life that goes down the street is a rcvpid, tossed, and turned aside, and dashed ahead, and driven back—beautiful in its confusion, and confused In its beauty. In the carpeted aisles of the forest, in the Toods from which the eternal shadow is never ' lifted, on the shore of the sea over whose iron coast tosses the tangled foam sprinkling the cracked cliffs with a baptism of whirlwind and tempest, is the best place to study God; but in the rushing, swarming, raving street is the best place to study man. Going down to your place of business and coming home again, I charge you to look about—see these signs of poverty, of wretchedness, of hunger, of sin, of bereavement—and as you go through the streets, and come back through the streets, gather up in the arms of your prayer all the sorrow, all the losses, all the sufferings, all the bereavements of those whom you pass, and present them in prayer before an all-sympathetic God. In the great day of eternity there will be thousands of persons, with whom you in this world never exchanged one word, rise up and call you blessed; and there will be a thousand fingers pointed at you in heaven, saying: "That is the man, that is the woman, who helped me when I was hungry, and sick, and wandering, and lost, and heart-broken. That is the man, that is the woman," and the blessing will come down upon you as Christ shall say; "I was hungry and ye fed me, I was naked and ye clothed me, I was sick and in prison and ye visited me; inasmuch as ye did it to these poor waifs of the streets, ye did it to me." , Again, ttte street impresses me with the fact that all classes and conditions of society must commingle. We sometimes culture a wicked exoluslveness, Intellect deplses ignorance. Refinement win have nothing to 4o with boorishness. Gloves hate the sunburned hand, and the high forehead despises t& ? flat bwfl; §n4 the will have nothing to do with the wild copsewood, and Athens hates Nazareth. This ought not so to be. The astronomer imist come down from his starry revelry and help us in our navigation. The surgeon must come away from his study of the human organism and set our broken bones. The chemist must coma away from his laboratory, where he has been studying analysis and synthesis, and help us to understand the nature of the soils. I bless God that all classes of people are compelled to meet on the street. The. glittering coachwheel clashes against the scavenger's cart. Fine robes run against the peddler's pack. Robust health meats wan sickness. Honesty confronts fraud. Every class of people meets every other class. Impudence and modesty, pride and humility, purity and beastliness, frankness and hypocrisy, meeting on the same block, in the same street, in the same city. Oh! that Is what Solomon meant when he said: "The rich and the poor meet together; the Lord Is the maker of them all." I like this democratic principle of the Gospel cf Jesus Christ which recognizes the fact that we stand before God on one and the same platform. Do not take on any airs; whatever position you have gained in society, you are nothing but a man, born of the same Parent, regenerated by the same Spirit, cleansed in the same blood, to lie down In the same dust, to get up in the same resurrection. It is high time that we all acknowledged not only the Fatherhood of God, but the brotherhood of man. * * * * Again, tlio street impresses me with tho fact that it is a great field for Christian charity. There are hunger and suffering, and want and wretchedness, In thp country, but these evils chiefly congregate in our great cities. On every street crime prowls, and drunkenness staggers, and shame winks, and pauperism thrusts out its hand asking for alms. Here, want is most squalid and hunger is most lean. A Christian man, going along a street in New York, saw a poor lad, and he stooped and said: "My boy, do you know how to read and write?" The boy made no answer. The man asked the question twice and thrice: "Can you read and write?" and then.the boy answered, with a tear plashing on the oack of his hand. Ho said in defiance: 'No sir; I can't read nor write, neither. God, sir, don't want me to read and write. Didn't he take away my father so long ago I never remember to have seen him? and haven't I :iad to go along the streets to get something to fetch home to eat for the folks? and didn't I, as soon as I could carry a basket, have to go out and pick up cinders, and never have no school- ng, sir? God don't want me to read, sir. I can't read, nor write neither." Oh, these poor wanderers! They have no chance. Born In degradation, as they get up from their hands and knees to walk, they take their first step on the road to despair. Let us go forth in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to 'escue them. Let us ministers not be afraid of soiling our black clothes while we go down on that mission. While we are tying an elaborate knot n our cravat, or while we are in the study rounding off some period rhetorically, we might be saving a soul 'rom death, and hiding a multitude of sins. 0 Christian laymen, go out on his work. If you are not willing to go orth yourself, then give of your means, and if you are too lazy to go, then get out of the way, and hide yourself In the dens and caves of the earth, lest, when Christ's chariot comes along, the lorses' hoofs trample you into the mire. Beware lest the thousands of he destitute of your city, in the last ;reat day, rise up a'nd curse your stupidity and your neglect. Down to work! Lift them up! One cold win- er's day, as a Christian man was gong along the Battery in New York, le saw a little girl seated at the gate, shivering in the cold. 'He said to her: 'My child, what do you sit there for, his cold day?" "Oh," she replied, "I im waiting—I am waiting for some- iody to come and take care of me." 'Why," said the man, "what makes ou think anybody will come and take care of you?" "Oh," she said, "my mother died last week, and I was cry- ng very much, and she said: 'Don't cry, dear; though I am gone and your !ather is gone, the Lord will send somebody to take*care of you.' My mother never told a lie; she said some one would come and take care of me, and I am waiting for them to ome." O, yes, they are waiting for •ou. Men who have money, men who liave influence, men of churches, men of great hearts, gather them in, gather ,hem in. It is not the will of your leavenly Father that one of these lit- le ones should perish. Lastly, the street impresses me with he fact that all the people are look- ng forward. I see expectancy written ou almost every face I meet. Where ou find a thousand people walking straight on, you only find one man topping and looking back. The fact s, God made us all to look ahead, be- ause we are immortal. In this tramp of the multitude on the streets, I hear he tramp of a great host, marching and ma'rching for eternity. Beyond he office, the store, the shop, the treet, thero is a world, populous and remendous. Through God's grace, nay you reach that blessed place. A ;reat throng fills those boulevards, and he streets are a-rush with the chariots f conquerors. The inhabitants go up aud down, but they never weep ana hey never tell. A river flows tbrpugh hat city, with rpundecl and luxurious , and the trees of life laden with fruitage bend their brancn- ,s Juto tfte crystal.

Those towers of strength, those palaces of beauty, gleam in the light of a sun that never sets. Oh, heaven! beautiful heaven! Heaven where our friends are! They take no census in that city, for It is inhabited by "a multitude which no man can number." Rank above rank. Host above host. Gallery above gallery, sweeping all around the heavens. Thousands of thousands. Millions of millions. Blessed are they who enter in through the gate into that city. Oh, start for it today! Through the blood of the great sacrifice of the Son of God, take up your march to heaven. "The Spirit and the bride say, Come, and whosoever will, iet him come and take the water of life freely." Join this great throng marching heavenward. All the doors of invitation are open. "And I saw twelve gates, and the twelve gates were twelve pearls." Huts for Early Spring:. The selection of appropriate millinery for the early spring months is decidedly difficult. All interest has been lost in even the late winter hats, and, beside, they nre apt to appear a little passee, as fashions, more than anything else, are liable to sudden changes with or even without the slightest reason. Then, again, there is a natural hesitancy to rush in the light summery creations on these fresh cool days; so the subject now to be considered Is the unobtrusive but dainty demi-saison hats that are shown in beautiful profusion. A becoming hat or bonnet certainly adds more to a woman's appearance than any other single article of outdoor apparel, and consequently should be selected with great care as to shape, color and general fitness. Hats this season show a marked tendency to return to the becoming downward cant of last summer, and thus afford a welcome shade to the eyes during the bright spring days. The hats, when tilted forward, are more easily worn by the vast majority than the flaring, fly-away effects so much In vogue during the winter. Toques in fibre cloth and cunningly woven straws will be extensively worn with both morning and afternoon toilets, while tulle hats are chosen for theater and reception wear. The tulle hat is deserving of much consideration; it la unusually artistic, and has a fluffy graceful effect that can be obtained in no other material. One beautiful tulle hat was fashioned with a small round crown and turned-up brim upon the turban style, the whole being made of small tuck-shirrings that induced a soft, ruffled appearance. Twisted pieces of tulle formed a bow at the center of the front, and through It were thrust two ornaments with enormous jet tops and amber pins, which furnished all the decoration necessary. This seemingly simple hat required twenty yards of tulle in Its construction and several days of most tedious labor. A small hat of white tulla was covered with jetted black ret and trimmed with long feather effects :nade of steel paillettes and caught upon the hat to the left of the center with a large cut-steel and Rhinestone buckle. Dainty soft tones of tulle are selected and embroidered with steel, gold or liver, or often brilliantly jeweled. Pale blue tulle sparkling with myriads of tiny Rhinestones was finished with two soft white feathers artistically arranged In front, and running up the stem of the feathers were narrow black velvet ribbons upon which were fastened at regular intervals small Rhinestone buckles. Appearance. "I saw Agulnaldo in Hong-Kong lu the early part of 1897," said E. B. Cunningham of Liverpool, who is now in New Orleans. "I was representing an English firm at the time, and was arranging a deal for some Manila he'.op with Emile Chargan, a resident factor, One day I recalled at Chargan's office and found him in conversation with a swarthy young Filipino, who was introduced to me as Aguinaldo. I had heard a good deal of the insurgent chief, so I looked at him with decided curiosity. What impressed me most strongly about him was his extremely youthful appearance. He did not look over 22 at the outside, and his air of luvenillty was borne out by his stoop- Ing shoulders and narrow chest. He seemed like a fragile, unformed boy. His features were distinctly Mongolian, Ills cheekbones high, his eyes oblique, his nose short and blunt, and his lips rather thick. He had no sign of beard on his face, but his hair was coarse, black and thick. His skin, I remember was badly pitted, possibly from smallpox. I took particular note of his dands and feet, which were remarkably small, even for a Filipino, lie wore women's cloth gaiters, which is not unusual in Hong-Kong, and bad a large solitaire on his left hand. Aguinaldo remained only a few moments after I arrived, byt long enough for me to note that his manners were curiously nervous. It seemud impossible for him to remain quiet for a moment."

Past Year Saia to Have Been Without an Equal, REMARKABLE SHOWING MADE. Payments Through the Cl«»*lng Ha»e Mcon ISnorraoni — February B*- porti of Mnnnfactured Products Ha*« Almost Doubled Since 1898. New York, March 20.—H. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: "In business this year cannot bo compared with any other. It can b» said that payments through the principal clearing houses for the last weeK ( have been 57.4 per cent greater than, in 1892, and 45.9 per cent greater than, in 1898, but that exaggerates the gain in some branches of business, while In others it falls far short of the gain. Thus the February exports of manufactured products have about doubled since 1892. Omitting isew York clear-; jngs.where speculation in stocks is most active, payments through the other principal houses for the same week; show increase of 37.6 per cent over ;1892 and 27.1 per cent over last year.. But without regard to such details all • ealize that the volume of business in ill branches is the greatest ever known. "The national prosperity rests on more solid foundations. The exports; of breadstuffs, provisions, cotton and oil in February showed a decrease of $6,000,000, but other exports, mainly, manufactured, were $36,406,943 In .value, against $31,275,396 last year, and, were sufficiently large to cover 60 pet, cent of the entire Imports. The mer- ichandise exports exceeded imports fop jthe month $33,624,117, the gold suppl^ increasing, and there appears no oc-, easion for monetary disturbance. The treasury recorded its first payment olj the $59,000,000 for the Central PaclfiO| railroad, having previously recelvadj $59,000,000 for the Union Pacific and over $6,000,000 for the Kansas Pacific. "Failures for the week have been 189' in the United States, against 208 last year, and thirty in Canada, against twenty-seven last year."
