A JKfin'n Hut !tt»(mt>r« No Indlcntion of Mental AbHlty-Thie Man With An Idea Keeps the World Aw»k«—It'« Brain*, Not Ancettrf, Which Co tints. : A comparatively small audience gave its undivided attention for an hoar and a half to the Rev. Dr. Frank Bristol last evening in the Academy of Music. He talked on "Brains" in a manner that thoroughly convinced his hearers that he possessed a very large share of the desirable article within the confines of his own cranium. The Docter ia an orator of no mean ability and one of the beat judges of our city declared last evening that he thought him to be the foremost platform speaker in .the West, He is a rapid speaker, his sentences short, pithy and incisive. His illustratlons,clear, vivid and particularly wellfdaptedimaltelhe-point reached for, without fail, ills lecture was interspersed with many bright remarks that would have occasioned much laughter had his audience been less interested. It is to be regretted that every boy and girl in our two cities was not present, as the words of the speaker would have spurred a luke-warm student to new efforts and possibly awakened a dormant ambition in the breast of .some boy or girl who, .otherwise, may be doomed to pass hU day In the dark unfathomed caves of oblivion. The first part of the lecture was devoted to exploding the popular belief that the hatrwas the measure of ' the man and that physiognomy and phrenology determined the mental character, .AB.caaes,hej!lted-A.lex8nder,-of-Mace-- The people of Sterling are making use of the good roads in our locality, speeding their fast horses, also for pleasure drives. -Emanuel Landls and-fatnily~visitei with John Landls and family* of Woodlawn, Sunday.

' April flrat baa come' and gone and, with it, the, jokes of the season. A joke is all right, but when a wife places soft soap in her husband's desert diah we call a grand bait. The winds of last week played havoc With things' in general. The shed built opposite the school for the ac- comodatlon of Mr. Bressler's children, who drive,'was de-roofed.V Josie Henninger is on the eick list. Election as we write, and everybody at the poles, and by tonight the names of the lucky men will be known. A good one on Mr. Schrader. After going on a double quick all the long day to get the beeves killed and delivered, found, on reaching the polls, that by moving he bad tost his vote- had been in tlie voting precinct just two daye sliort. There was one man blue, Miss 'Ella Ebereole, of our school, passed successfully the teachers' exftm iaatiou aud as soon aa aha retches her donla, whose name will andure aa lofig as history of War is written; Alebrecht Durer, the Angelo of the North, and Goldsmith, whose name will endure as long as the language in wjjlch he wrote. These, with others, whose names are closely allied with the advance of mankind, were men whose faces belied all the rules which phrenologists lay down for greatness. He spoke of the size of the head and said that the largest hat in Chicago, an 8V£, is worn by a brewery employee, who ia engaged in manual labor. He spoke of the experience of. Knox, the New York ha'tter, who has fitted the head gear of men of all sorts of conditions for the past forty years and eays that the size and shape of the head- determines nothing in regard to the intellectual capacity of its owner. The minijcpum brain that escapes idiocy, must-welgh-thirty-seven-ounces—in man and thirty-four ounces in woman. The averaged sized brain weighs forty-nine ounces.thongh brains weighing forty-three ounces have made im- life rfi« A grand empty fi/*<>fc<)f |p >i/> -ot|i , n> power ff!t, for the bt!rd"n!* nf cipline him arid snake him specimen of hlskffjd, The man with money Js apt to bs fituntftd in intellect ao the fcxfstlng conditions foster the animal nature at tha expense of the higher qualities of his nature. It does not matter whether our names have a connection in heraldry or hemp. In fact, almost all of us have a hemp connection; if we look for it we are almost sure to find it in our ancestral line. Every great name of history was made by individual efi fort of one person, not necessarily a descendent of a long line of[arl8tocrata. In fact, the great have seldom came from the enervated and corrupt blood of the nobles, but from the pure, clear blood of the poor. Angelo was the son of a mason, Columbus the son of a wool carver, Shakespeare the son of a butcher, Keats the son of a hostler, Burns of a farmer, Lincoln a rail splitter. The Hat takes in almost all of the great in history. The speaker then spoke of_atnblMon and flaULtbatthe young man -of ambition was not the dangerous member of society, but he who shuffled and whined I can't, was the element that held the race In bondage. .j, He then turned his attention to the school and said that the time ^hasjjar- rived When the school master, who teaches school until something better presents itself, and the school ma'am, who waits for some man to pop] the matrimonial question, will be set aside and their places filled with men "and women, who are trained and'fltted for the mighty work of training the' mind of the young in the path of wisdom. As the matter now stands, said Dr. Bristol, an expert plgitlcker, in Chicago, gets a larger salery than the Superintendent of schools. He . declared -that-the-solution-of-the-queBtlouftr^now- S* Wt fi$)*(<f r,*' e--ft^fy> pocket «,twi ffell tsoidl brick layer had a brain which weighed sixty-seven ounces, and an ignorant negro in this country possessed one that weighed sixty-eight. The brains of eleven Chinese coolies, who were killed in an accident a few years ago on a western railroad,were weighed.and it was found they/ outweighed .the brains of an equal number of men.who are synonymous with the progress of their kind, . *. : • Lincoln was six feet four inches in height^acid jvoro_a seven and a half, hat, while Napoleon was below the average of height; Milton,Wesley,Thiers, Wilberforce and Shakespeare were also small men. The estimate of the power of the brain,,lles in its reaults, Newton, Fulton, Stephenson,Napoleon and Lincoln; the brains, of Greece and Macedonia that saved Europe from Cyrus and his Persian bords, the brain of the Franks that stopped the blighting march of Attila and his Huns and that of England, which baa held her mistress of the sead for centuries, has been .the proof of its power. The philosophers of Greece recogniz- ,ed the power of the mind in every Instance, but they made the mistake In thinking that a few educated brains would,do the work for. the nation. They divided the people; they made a ruling class and a cla.ss to be ruled nnd the glory of Greece departed. .The time has arrived when it is a dangerous thing for a boy to arrive at man's estate without an education. Every trade and profession is filled with men with trained and educated brains and he who lacks the training will suffer in the race. •''••',' The good mind may fail,,through lack of energy and purpose. Power without push ia apt to be power wasted. It is the man with an idea that keeps the world awake, the animated bomb that bursts among his fellows and makes them move, The history mak- er.8 of the world were such, the discovers, inventors and generals, whose names are handed down ; the generations, were men with an idea on the brain, The difference between success and failure lies in having aa idea and pushing it, The speaker here went aside to deliver a few biting sentences against the impotent "culchawed" circles now to be fouaql ia almost every community.

Last Saturday, as Elam Grubb was returning home from Sterling with a fractious team of "oldi colta," the reach broke, leaving the horses attached to the front wheels. Mr. Grubb.held to the animals as long as possible, not letting loose of the lines until he was dragged on the ground for a considerable distance. Near Gait they were brought to bay. Mr, Grubb'e arms were bruised badly. J. C. Crom baa assumed control of the milk route formerly owned by- E. S. Colcord. The latter has taken charge of a route east of Coleta. . Mathlas Spang, Sr., was not able to be about town one day last week. Sickness surely must have been the cause. Edward Pulver has been busy making extensive improvements at out the farm of H.
