The league was organized in Cleveland, Ohio, May 12, 1890. Prior to that time there had ;been..a .number .of young people's so- 'cieties of different names In the church, each, more or less, independent of tho treat, 'although generally having the same objects in 'view. Delegates from "Jm'any of these assembled in Cleveland , to try to harmonize or consolidate them all 'Into one. As might be supposed the -, representatives were attached each to own society, and for a time it appeared^impossible to effect a union, but * rt 'last ''on, the' day indicated it was ac- impllshed and the new organization . as , born and christened. This was ! within 'the pale of the Methodist Epla/copal' church. The next general con- ^ference of that, church approved and jadopted the organization , and gave it jofflcial standing in the church, with ,. Bishop J. l«f. Fitzgerald as its presl- "jdent. "The loca^^rga'nizations in the ^individual churches are called chapters. , 'Of these ^alreaa/ organized and en- ToDed the^number is nearly 15,000, and Ithe aggregate membership in this one denomination is about 1,000,000 members. The league la its spirit and form i • lias been found so consonant with the '. genius of Methodism and so well adapt- r • ed<to the end for was designed , that the Methodist Episcopal church ••. -south', the Methodist church of Canada land the Wesleyan Methodists of England have adopted -it. It .is therefore. *|How not only 'interdenominational, but 'international as well. It is still spreading and -growing very rapidly, having 1 organizations in Mexico, South Amer- 1 ica, England, Ireland, Germany, Swe;den, Norway and Italy; also in Japan, ' jchlna and India.

An Jn> the will John fackberry, 16 yeafa of fife, was dfdwhed in Lotita Grlifld's <tuatty\ cor- her of Osceola street and the Iron Mountain railroad tracks, Saturday evening, says St. Louis JPoaMMspatch. The lad went to the jbond to-fish with two young •companions! They were seated on a steep embankment, when John's pole fell in the water and in trying to got It out..he lost his. bala»ce.,and fell it>. The boy was a good swimmer and in a few moments he came to the surface and made for the shore. He called to the other boys to hand out a fishing pole and pull him in. Instead they ran excitedly away, calling for the help they might have rendered. He succeeded in reaching the side of the pond, but there was no place on the slippery rocks >where he could support himself or climb out. He tried in vain to get a footing and before his companions returned he gave up from exhaustion and sank out of sight. Bubbles rose overthe spot where he had.gone under for the last time when the boys returned with a switchman on the Iron Mountain railroad. An old skin* lying on the side of the pond where the bank was less steep was launched and at 7:15 the body of the dead-lad was recovered. The little fishermen were weeping bitterly over flieir companion's fate, but they dared not accompany the body home. • Officer Moran secured the address' of, the deceased, No. 4026 Nebraska avenue, only a few blocks from the pond, and shouK derlng the body he soon arrived at the: place,; The^lad's little sister was calling him for supper. The mother had Just threatened to chastise her boy for being- late'- when- the body' was brought to her. The unfortunaW'wbmSih went; into hysterics and was prostrated with, grief. The deceased was a lov«r of the water and last summer he saved the life of a boy who fell off a barge m the river. Two weeks ago a man com-, mitted suicide by drowning in Grun-d'a quarry pond. QUEEN VICTORIA'S DONKEY. She Bought' the Animal at a Greet Ban • ~. caliiwfrom fc-'PeiiBanfc*"^— During Queen Victoria's recent so-, Journ at Cimiez she was accustomed every afternoon to ride about the environs of Nice in a little carriage drawn by a sober-looking donkey named Jockey The history of this reliabfe and highly- prized animal is interesting. Th» queen was at Acquisgrana two or three years ago, and one morning was pass-. Ing along the border of the lake when a peasant went by leading at the end of a rope a well-built donkey, which would have been handsome had it not been so-thin as to excite suspicion that its last meal had been scanty and many days before. The queen addressed thQ peasant and asked him If the^beast wa%; for sale. "That depends >upon the conditions^ signorina," the man replied, "for if 1 sell him how will I be able to gain ray •living?" ' "How much did you pay for him?" "A hundred francs;" . "I will give you 200 and you can thea buy another." It was thus that Jocko passed from 'the peasant's hands'Into 1 royal-'-hapuX and for the first time in his life had enough to eat. The story of the adventure spread far and wide, and whenever the queea went out thereafter she was sure to encounter at least a dpzen emaciated and badly curried donkeys which she was opportuned to buy. Naturally these attempts were unsuccessful, hut their owners lost nothing except their time, which was the least -valuable of commodities in that easy-going land. The next year, when her majesty returned to Acquisgrana, the master of Jocko chanced to .see his old^ donkey again," When be viewed his fat " " and,tightly stretched, shining covered wjth a gold-mounted harness, he exclaimed: "I regret bitterly that I did not eel} myself with my donkey."

This is the simple statement of a pleasing termination to a parish trouble. Simple as it is, however, It Is a fact of extreme Interest, inasmuch as it emphasizes the> singularity of our government-and-the, entire democracy of our Institutions. Elsewhere In history we could not flnd a parallel to .this, for the country parson who has suffered an Infinity of worry by reason of petty bickerings among his parishioners Is the brother, esteemed and loved, of a vast nation's ruler. This Is one phase of the matter, The nation is not as a. Whole concerned With :he fact that the-parson is brother to the president. There Is, alas, another side to the situation.

T,w* ^vv'V , * *4^^^^^m^^^Mk^ u \ *m %'F S^^^SS S- ^'ol^Slt^^ als in the nation are concerned with the fact that such a tie of blood exists. It is a truth that certain members of Rev. William N. Cleveland's congregation are opposed to him in politics, and they flnd their political conscience troubled by the alleged bias of thejr splrlU ual director. This IB ...the potent: first p:iu?e of the pastor's difficulties. In his congregation there is one of his own political faith— only one. The Rev. Mr, Cleveland was born in Windham (now Willirhantic), Conn., -Aj.prll 7, 1832, and is, then, some years older than his brother,' Grover, who was born in 1837. There were nine children. Of these two brothers were in the war of the rebellion, and, singularly enough, after escaping' all the perils of battle, both perished in the burning of the steamer Missouri, while on their way t^ t!;e Bermudas, .where they were to engage in business. There were five sisters; all of whom are living', and all married, save Rose Elizabeth, who is Known to the whole country as the Lady of the White Bouse during President Cleveland's first term. "We moved to Virginia," Mr; Cleveland said to me, "when I was an infant, but after a few years,came north to Caldwell, N. J., where drover was born. From there my father moved to Fayetteville, N. Y., and there'I first went to school. In due time I-began a course at the village academy an4 was ^vadua),ed.
