ALBERT SWADENEB, City Clerk. The Second im-'ousry Kxteu*Io 1,1 c tare The second lecture of tboMissionary Sxtenelon course, under the auspices if the Christian Endeavor movement, was a complete fcucoess. It was hold at the First Presbyterian church and he vast audience room was com >letely filled. The audience was the argest in the seven months expert ence of the lecturer. After an open np song service Kev, T. S. Freeman ntroduced Rev. F. G. Coan, a re' urned missionary from Persia. Rev Joan read a short scripture lesson ipon which to base his subject, and mmedlately begun hia lecture. He departed a little from tha subject an- nounoed and broadened It to "Our Delation to the World's Erangaliza- lon," He called our attention, first, to our brothers and sisters In South America. 0,000,000. Then he carried us to he "Dark Continent" to its millions. One word describes the condition of he people of that continent—Slavery. Jo gave graphic descriptions of the lorrlble cruelties practiced, and the umber killed, and the torture prao» Iced to drive them to the coasts. He then took us to India. One word described their condition— irlsis. Then to China with 400.COO,- 00 which could In a word be do- cribt'd in black letters—Death. Ho stated that he took Persia as an llustration simply because ho bad eon there and had seen the thing* iracti'.-od there; but that the same xisted there In every heathen coun- ry. He then took up the causes of his deplorable condition. He put rst the civilization. The governments wore absolutely monarchies, 'he people a> e under the despotlem nd caprice ot their ruler. Every blng was in the most backward state they had not progressed any since he bible times— no railroad, no farm ools, no wagon roads, BO hotels 'here people were ground down for upport and for taxes from tortures nd otherwise until they had noambl ion left. He had eeen a man who old his property to pay hla taxee, lead pltlouBly for mercy and then ragged out of his home and lashed Imost insensibly. Ho had seen a man punished by being buried in the round to the waist, a wall built round him and loft thus In the boll- ng hot sun to die of exposure with a uard watching him saelnff that no ood be given him. He bad also seen man punished by death by being uried head downward, and then ement poured round him to seal hU fate. Another reason was the social and domestic We. India has 75.000 child widows under 10 years of age, and are under the bun only because their betrothals died before they were married. Women were treated like ani- nale. Poll(r*my worked fearful re- iu.lt*. They allowed a man e&ir divorce!; at four wlvei are all a man can have at one time, divorces are common. Each new wife was causa tor additional hatred and jealousy. The state of wom^n was in its lowest stage; and a Missionary had told him of one she visited while dying, and instead of having quiot and everything done that could be for comfort, 25 or 30 women were mourning and wailing and tearing their hair; over on the other side were men hammering and pounding, making the coffin in which to bury her, and still in another corner, all in her sight, women were making her shroud. The spirit passed away while the Missionary was atill there, and 9he could do her no good. Another reason was the religious training. They were reared to idola try. Customs remain unchanged for years. They would serve the Lord properly if they knew how. Once each year in Persia, cbey have a ceremonial meeting-, at which they try to do penance for all their sins during the year. They congregated in the cltlen by the thousands. They fasted for ten days. On the tenth day they formed great processions. The first division did the wailinir; the second division were strfpped to the waist and carried chains with which they beat and tore their backs alternately over the rlpht and loft fehoulders. Third division carried swords, shaven heads, bodies covered with white shirts, in the midst of the wails they struck their heads with sharp ewords. He had seen those ehlrls saturated with blood to tbe ground. Uohind tbim were their wives and children, and with sticks were trying to save their husbands from these blows. Once in awhile one would stagger and fall and then be carried away to die. The lecturer then touched upon the methods of reliof showing what bad been done and what could be done. This work has been conducted only in the last hundred years. The first years wore with great difficulties. In the year 1858 over a billion souls had been opened up to missionary work. Stanley discovered Africa and opened It up. China was opened by treaty. India came out from under the control by the East India Company. Yet all this seems hardly anything when we think of the great work to be done. In these United States of sixty millions, wo have eighty thousand preachers. For the twelve hundred and fifty million foreign we have but six thousand. Missionary work need" first the great work of prayer He cited some of the things accomplished in thia way- It needed our sympathy; there were books to be read, knowledge to be gained of their needs. If we allowed ourselves to learn of it our sympathy would be greater. The greatest need was money. The lecturer then contrasted tbe beautiful home life in all Its luxury we enjoy lo this land and showed the opposite to be true ot foreign lands. While in two monihe, when he sailed again for Persia the sounds of his foot -tape in the home of bis family should bo heard no more, and while having great discouragements in the field, lack of comfort, having to ewim streams, climb mountains, live among hcathc-D and Ignorant people and all other dlscouragtnente yet the greatest discouragement of tbe missionary was the lack of money. To be compelled to tell tbe natives that this school was closed or that hospital was shut up or som<3 other missionary work was discontinued for lack of funds in the church at homo was the hardest of all. |50 would sustain a teacher for a year, and would also sustain a col in a hospital. Lastly he said you could give your- selfs. He made an appeal for volunteers for the work in the field. In this connection it would bo well to say that Mlsa Wallace of Hunting-ton, Is here conferring with Rev. Coan and will leave with him to enter the work when he sails for Persia next July. Fainted f lie Town lied. Lafayette Courier: When the rosy sun peeped over Oakland Hill this morning-, sending a streak of rod across the peaceful city, he stopped, blufibed and covered hla face. Ho h«B not had the nerve to shine on Lafayette since. With all hiB brazen fnco he can net look upon Lafayette now without a feeling of envy, of jealousy. When he innocently and by virtue of precedence or assumption started out to paint the city with the red hues of early dawn he found be had been forestalled. Daring the night the town had been moat gorge ously painted. Yesterday there arrived in the city two women of scarlet from the city of bridges, Logansport. They came hero to visit women of their own complexion »nd to Invite at least two of them to Logansport for an indefinite time. Early in the even ing tbe Logansport parties went to the bagnio conducted by Jessie Maudyand then the fun began. They got the two girls, secured their trunks, profaned, blasphemed and cussed until purgatory looked this way instead of the other on the search for hades. The four hired a cab and the painting process began in earnest. It was a night of sport, a night of wine, a night of maledictions. At 6:30 o'clock this morning Captain Maule and Sergeant Powell arrested the whole party as they drove up. to a hotel, ready to sleep off the merriment of the night. The two Logansport women put up their diamonds for security, several hackmen were fined for associating, and the sun may shine aga'm- Nerve force is drawn on by every muscular or brain effort.

What Home of the Predictions Ar« — Owen or Jono*. Indianapolis News: A voice from "near the throne" eays that the Republican State Central Committee this year has a ticket, but that no especially aggressive fight has been made (or It. The committee prefers, this Information says, W. D Owen for Secretary of State, because Owen was with the Harrison administration. He is looked upon as the man to head tbo ticket as gubernatorial candidate two years hence. The strength of Aaron Jones's candidacy against Owen is admitted. This might lead to the "old ticket." The advocates of Owensaj that his Incoming would mean a new- ticket throughout, including, perhaps, | Rlchey of Muncie, for Auditor, and Ketcham or Taylor of this city, for Attorney General. Jones' nomination, veracious judges say, would gin Coons, for Auditor, almost a passport to success, and this would of course, mean that other Marion county candidates need net apply. HVI Pltttnan.
