Lincoln, the great emancipator, whom the assassin shot, drew large crowds to look upon his cold re mains. Of him the newspapers had declared "he died." At the City Hall in New York, crowds were trying to get a last look of him, who received the surrender of the great and christian Lee,before his body was put out of sight till the morning of the resurection. What an active life Grant had led, yet the time came when it was said "he died' When I first became old enouqh to notice I knew hundreds of men fifty years old. Now it can only be eald "and he died." The human race is born to die. Die they will, die thev must. Though they haye nothing to do with their existence here they work out their probation nntil is said of each "he died." As "he or she died," will soon be said of all my readers, is it not im portant that we should all make the best use of the days allotted ua-? Life is too :hort to quarrel; too short to injure others; too short to find fault with everybody; too short to gossip; too 3hort to be a miser; too short to get drunk; too short to swear: too short to play big I and to play liLile jtoo short to grasp all and give nothing: too short to see motes in 'he eyes of others and not the beams in our own eyes; and too short to be bossy. Now and then we see on door-bed Is th emblems of mourning What i3 the meaning of those bunch es of black material ? "He or she died." She is clad is black; a Jong black veil in graceful Jolds falls from her hex her gloves are bhek; her 'kerchief is blackbordered as well as her static ery. What means this? In the words of the text "she died.'' The dead are in the majority. Those who sleep the ia3t sleep of death might be counted by thousands of millions.

Their gags are all new, their. songa and choruses new and pretty and the orchestral part of the show is un usually good. We say this because we know it to be so. Go out Jo morrow night and have a good laugh. It is worth the price of ad mission to hear the "corkers" thrown at Jesse Hamilton, the middle, man. The quartettes are simply grand. End men all good ones. Be sure to go, It is giyen for the benefit of the band. Last Ifotlce Town Taxes.

Miss Steva Dodson, a returned Missionary toChina, who is spends ing some time in the city, made an interesting talk Sunday afternoon at all Saints' Episcopal church. Miss Dodson told of the customs and peculiarities (to us) of the chinaman, how the boys and girls were sepa rated from birth until of marriage air e age, when the young men would be allowed to peep through a curtain or partitioQ to select from a number the one he wished for a wife, and how all the females of humble par entage that were adopted by per sons able to rear jn, were thrown into a ravine and ' .,;. away vw.h.
