C* A. la tits Bible Class, maintained by about twenty young men, under the leadership of General; Secretary H. N. Eaji- *ea. The average attendancefor the fim two months was fifteen and the third month it tfas Increased to six- tsen. The class meets.regularly every Sunday at 4:30 p. m., and has just entered upon its fourfti month's study of the gospel s. ' An examination is taken at the close of each month's lessons and the results attained by its members are gratifying. A recent examination on the Gospel of St«Mark, found one of its members, Thomas 9fc John,i witfe the honors of the class, having-attained the 100 per per cent, mark and- being the first member of the class to acquire the recognition. We present the list of qnes- tiofas aa given for examination and the answers given by Mr. St. John, which will prove helpful to all interested in ft systematic study of the scriptures. i.

His home seems to have been a refuge for the Christians of that community. As Peter calls him his son, Mark was propa- bly one of his converts and was no doubt an eye-witness to some of the incidents in Christ's lifo. He was an attendant of Paul and Barnabas, was cause of their dispute, and separation, .•and was the companion of Barnabus for some time, thongh later was again received by Fan! and was with him daring his first imprisonment at Borne. .From about sixty-three to sixty-eight 4L D.,^ was with Peter in Asia .Minor, after which, going to Egypt, he became the founder and bishop of the church at Alexandria.

To give the Romans and the Gentile church in general a history of the '.ministry of Christ and to show His marvelous power, especially over evil spirits and to present Him as a spiritual conqueror, "The Holy One of God," .to a people who, aside from the prjeach- __ing of the apostles, knew little or nothing of Christ, either from Old Testament prophecy or from being "eye witnesses of His majesty." ' 6, No reference is made to the Mo- eaio Law. Very few passages are quoted from the Old Testament. Hebrew terms! are explained for the Gentile reader. The style is brief, clear and concise. Uses forty-one adjectives of impetuosity, revealing his assimilation of Peter's style of preaching. Gives many details as to place, names, numbers, etc. It gives only four parables and eighteen; miracles, and the narrative passes rapidly from one incident to the next. About ninety- three per 'cent of it is common to the othel gospels. Mark calls Jesus, Lord, only in latter part of last chapter. * The very vernacular used in the occurence is often employed. There are a number of names and terms not used by the other •writers. It deals almost' entirely with facts and action*.

Ilepubllcan Begister: Two Chicago officers .came here this morning to take into custody s well-known resident of Galesburg on a charge of theft and to transport him to Chicago for a hearing. They allege that a Chicago -man. pl_ac* envelope, containing $C& in cash, and that the latter appropiated the money. The Galesburg man admits that an envelope was handed him, without any explanation as to its contents, and that he put it into hla overcoat pocket. This garment he hung up along with some others in a public place and • when he returned he noticed that the letter was torn open. He .Immediately went to the" owner and aaked what was In the letter and was then informed that, it contained $65 in cash. He denied Knowing this or how the envelope came open, and was surprised when he learned of the money that it contained.

Benjamin Bayer, of West Fifth street, was in the office lest Saturday with a valentine over a hundred years old. It was made by hand, handsomely cut in filigree work and illuminated.

On the heart there is written In red letters of the Gerjman text, "Gottfried Mong, 1779." ? Mr. Bayer found the souvenir in his father's Bible.

Attorney Haskell Says Central Fark Will Be Minus Artillery Decoration. A short time ago Alderman Walter N. 'Haskell wrote Congressmen Prince regarding the, necessary .steps to be taken to obtain some condemned cannon to be used for decorative purposes. Mr. Haskell received a letter from Mr. Prince in which he says that, there is no field gunjs left to be distributed for this purpose. There arefiome condemned heavy cannons at Eastern arsenals that can be bad, but the transportation alone would make them cost from $1,500 to §2,000. Mr, Haskell thinks that decorations made up of condemned ordnance will be scarce in Sterling parks for some time to come. •. JORDAN MEN IN TROUBLE.
