P. S. 0. ». Hftllj. Nors.—Till* Arltcla w.u tntpnrli*il for ln<t week's Uniio, but ovrtrjft (o itt« fin n ^rnH /.ilfon mnfijuetl opon fir llo nt It WAS omiu-'l, - ten. At the spring meeting of the fv.islorn Association of Congregational churches mid ministers of Iowa, held at McGregor last Vixy, an hour was given to llin Societies of Christian Kadcavor connected with our churches, which was occupied by representatives of these societies who had been Invited to participate In the oxerclses. Then the suggestion was mads of a» informal meeting at some convenient point in which nil tko Soelolios of Chris- Ian Kedcavor in this putt of the dale should be invited to participate; thu object of rvliieh should bo to promote acquaintances aud cooperation nmonr; so elotios connected with rlifl'erent religious denominations; nml If possible te secure the organization of societies in places where there is need of their ork. Following that suggestion the Endeavor Society of Postville sent out the invitations which brought tognthur the meeting of the list. The affair wns without any show of formality. Thore was not evori mi aftcmplnl an organization among the Societies represented; which represent several different denominations. We Wanted to see how It would seem to join hands in Christian Kiideavor work ncross denominational lines; and the unanimous verdict was that we hope it will not bo the last lime. Tho soeieties invited responded most cor.Hilly; and except for tho very heavy rainfall of the preceding night, which made Iho roads practically impassable, we would kiivo had a church full of enthusiastic; Kndeavorcrs. Hut those who planned to come with teams were effac inally hindered; and as a majority of those invited were of that class, our ntleiidnncu was not large. There were SO or Bb in nltrindaiiai; from abroad, which coniidnrinjf the stale of the wcHthei and the rusds wo thought yery good. Tho services woro interesting and prolitablu. If any one was disappointed, and felt that it wns not worth the trouble of attending, he was too courteous to let us knoT anything about It. Kxpocting a large number to cowi by privato conveyance and spend the day with us, to return borne in the evening, the Indies provided a social dinner which was served in the church parlor. Of coarse it was eejoyed. No one ever heard of sic li an ocraiiou in Postville whicii was not highly enjoyable. The regret, was caused by the absence of many for whom provision had been made. The interest of tho day culminatcd in the last address of the evening, by ltev. N. L. Packard, of Ionia, president of the northern IOWA IIU- io n of Endeavor Societies. The subject ol his address was the pledge of the active member anil whs' its promise implies. Tho w :athor was somewhat against us, but wn line a good time for all that; aud we hope that an impulse h,i< be, n given which will manifest itself in periodical meetings of the kind in the future, which shall continually iricress'i in enthusiasm and inllur.fino until the Kn- deavor Society shall be felt for good in every community of the district, represented. .V.

As soon as tho campaign is fairly openod a republican club will be organized which will be onthnsed and assisted by the quartette, which, by the way. will be hard to beat when it comes to music. Prof. Smith Leaves TJs. To tho sincere regret of all the patrons of our school Prof. Smith has decided to leave Postville and has accepted the "call" to Lansing. This will compel our school board to employ a new prir.cip#l and a stranger, (t is to be hoped the board will be fortunate in the selection, and that our school mi>y continue to maintain its enviable reputation. In all the years that Mr. Smith has had charge of our school he has been singularly fortunate in the administration of it, and has brought it up to a vory high etale of eflloienr.y. He was unanimously elected for another year but he has thought best to leave us. While we dislike to lose his services and his society we hope he will be equally successful in his new field. -Ed Prior, of Postville, wa* at Far mersburg last week and put up a very monument of his make (or Will Browne.

H jp>« iMwrtft «w»j?w»w». Mm, About the Weather. ED. RRVIXW:—fit these times of excessive rainfall the following from the pen of Foster—the sharply criticised and much maligned Foster—will be read with interest. I clipped it from tho RHVIEW sixteen months ago, and give it verbatim, and any one can draw their own conclusions. He says: "We are searing the most destructive storm period of recent years, a period thai lias not been equalled for atmospheric and earth disturbances within the memory of any one now living, and 1 would advise all to prepare for it. There will be more of and the most destructive tornadoes, the most severe blizzards and cold waves, the deepest snows, the GREATEST KaixrAr.cs and other extremes of the weather from May 1st this year to May 1st, 1803, that has over been witnessed by the people now living. As my readers well know. 1 am not given to sensational predictions and 1 1 will probably be censured for these forecasts, but the occasion demands all that f say about It and time will vindicate my action In tho matter. This period will beglu ahotu" the first of May, while Mars will be easting its equinoctial. Mercury passing the sun's equator, but while these storms will be very severe they will aot compare with those that will occur later In the year, during tho first part otl894." Now it will be seen from the lore- going that Foster predicts from astronomical data and is by all odd* the most reliable weetlior prophet we have yet how rwy few will put any faith in hie presage* of the weather.
