JITS OF i'vim - A s THEY AT7F.ND AT SAPTIST CMTRCH, 6S. JLbttefi So BB Able IJlscourae Its* Re-* W. B. Moirts A A delegation of nearly forty members of Corinthian Lodge 63, Knigbts ef Pythias attended divine worship in the (Baptist cbtrch Sunday -morning and listened to a very able sermon by the E«v. W, B. Morris, pastor of that Church, on "Friendship," the foundation of the organization. A large congregation was present outside the members of the organization who also deeply enjoyed the discourse. The pulpit had been prettily decorated for the occasion with potted plants, conspicuous among them being two very handsome callaa in'full bloom; these flowers being the emblem of the order, though belonging moro cspeci' ally to the Uniformed Bank Degree. The Knights occupied the front seats in the church which had been reserved for them on this occasion. The services were opened by the pastor, who greeted the visitors in a few well chosen words, after which he made a short prayer and the congregation sang the Doxology. The lesson of the day was the Psalm, 146 beginning, "Praise ye the Lord, praise'ye the Lord Oh my eon! and all that in me is/' After the reading of the Psalm was con- eluded, Leo Philips sang a very pretty solo, "Pass It On." Mr. Morris began his sermon, by Baying, that true -friendship was the firmest tie that binds men together. He spoke eloquently of the legend of the friendship that bound Damon and = Pythiaa~togeUier,=flttuQ^UuBtofr4he one who "placed his life in pledge, and the almost superhuman efforts made by t'.-fe other to''redeem the pledge EO given. He also went, further and told of instances where heroic men have calmly rendered up their lives for others of theirjkird through a sense of, doty. The speaker then compared the sacrifices made by man and Christ and told in powerful language, of the great love of him who died upon the cross at Calvary that an atonement .for the sins of the world might be made. Mr. Morris paid a high tribute to the value of the work done by the fraternal organizations, but he said that when £he end of life had come the work must ceaae because it Is the work of man and cannot follow into the realm of death. He made a strong plea for his Audience to view the atone- painted in vivid word color the awful scene on Golgotha. Leo PhHips then sang another solo, and after s hymn sung by the congregation, the Benediction was ORDAINED TWO ELDERS. Ceremonies nt tb« Prenbyter- , Ian Church Sunday Morning:. The services at the Presbyterian church Sunday morning were made memorable by the ordination as Elders of George M. Robinson and Fred P.- Kiosterman. The two gentlemen were recently chosen to take upon them the sacred duties of this office at the annual meeting of. the church. The ser, mon byjthe Bev. William Carter was appropriate to the occasion and was an able effort. It was a discourse. upon the Presbyterian form of government jiu which the speaker expounded some of the duties of both elders and congregation. The regular charge was then given, closing with the ordination prayer. The new elders took the vows of their office and the congregation the vowe to support and uphold them, The right hand of fellowship was extended by the brother elders, after which the service closed. During the service a very pretty duet was sung by Mr. Diller and Miaa Caughey. ' The musical feature of the evening »arvJee was a duet by Mr. Dlller and Mrs. Paul T. Gait, This ia the Brut • time these musicians have eung to- getberjfor some time* Their number was greatly enjoyed.

Prince, M. C., —loin Gong; JHstrState of Illinois^ " We, the members of the Eock Biver Bee Keepers' Association, In convention assembled on this ibth day of February, 1897. in the city of Morrison County of Whiteside and State of Illinois, feel that on account of the large importation of honey from Cuba ane other countries (where labor can be procured much below the cost of living in the United States) the production of honey in this country will be greatly diminished if not entirely destroyed unless such importation be stopped or to a large extent restricted. It being the establlflhed policy of our government to protect home Industries, we, therefore, ask you as -our representative in Congress to use your '-best endeavors in that honorable body to have •a tariff or duty of not less than four ce nts per pound placed upon all extracted or strained honey, and six cents per pound upon all comb honey that may be received at any port In the United States. Feeling that the pros perlty of the industry of apiculture depends upon the passage of some such measure, we have the honor to subscribe ourselves. • " .

' . . •' A. M. I). NONE CAME TO TRIAL. Criminal* All ' Plead Oullly at MorrlRon and are Now Serving Sentence*, Many readers of the STANDARD will i ecall an interview with Judge' Shaw, copied from the Dlxon Sun, In which the Judge prophesied that of all the prisoners then in the Whiteeide'county jail, none would be brought before 'him for trial. This prophesy wan made one' week prior to the opening of the February term of court, and it has since been fulfilled. When _WiIllamB, Franzen and Jacobs entered a plea of guilty last Monday! the Hat was com- pleled. Every- pefs6n^n : ^e = ToWt/ jail on the opening of court has since plead guilty and each is now serving his sentence in one of the State "penal Institutions. • "Sheriff Fuller yesterday took Red-. field" to Joliet and Jacobs to Pontiac Thejqiil has now but one inmate, a" man who is under bond to keep the peace. In this connection the attention of the reader is called to the fact that the February term of court is not yet adjourned. Ten prisoners have plead guilty, have received sentence and are now- serving • time. Sheriff Fuller is allowed twenty days in which to execute sentence in each case, bu he has landed each man in the institu tion to which he was sentenced sever a days before the time\ limit expired, and at no time have the Sheriff's duties at court been neglected. This fact speaks *•§•*« of great credit. "' HE WAS NEAR DEATH'S DOOR Johnton fietn In nn Awful-ITU Without flinch Damage.
