Mr. John II Mills, in his parting
remarks, as he retires from the
Baptist Orphanage, refers to his
seryices in a modest way, and his
losses and success as editor of the
Biblical - Recorder, losing $1,500
with but 1,100 subscribers and
running it up in six years to
3,200. He edited without any charge
or compensation the organ of the
Oxford Orphanage. He concludes
as follows :
"I cannot express my gratitude to
to hundreds of good people w no, by
prayers and kindness, have given me
cheer and comfort in my work.
am trying to forgive those who have
misunderstood me and endeavored
to harm me, and during life will
feel a deep Interest in the hapiness
The value of the work I have
done will be estimated by the lives
of those whom I have been able to
influence. Whatever may be my
future I pray for grace to say :
" 'I worship Thee, sweet will of God,
And all Thy ways adore,
And every day I live I lone,
To love Thee more and more.' "

Mbe tines for Divorce.
Topeka, Has., Sept., 6. After a
month of married life, Mrs. Ethel
Madison has brought suit for divorce
from her huBband in the Wyendotte
County District Court, She alleges
in her petition that she only lived
with him two days and that the 48
hours thus passed weie simply a

She says she tried to be a dutiful
wife, that Bhe wanted to kiss and
fondle him, but that he spurned
her adyances. He told her he would
not permit her to kiss him for $500
cash. This occurred within fiye
hours of the time of the wedding
ceremony was performed. . Mrs,

doomed beings submitted to his

ears and Buch other little pranks as
pulling out their tongues, toe and
finger nails and goughiag out their

A Female Centaur.
A singular arrest Was made re
cently in Central Park, New York.
A young English woman was ar
rested by a park policeman for rid
ing astride on horseback. She pro
tected against her arrest and de
clared that she had as much right to
straddle her horse in the park as
other women have to straddle
bicycles. The matter was brought
before the president of the polio
board and he decided that there is
no law to prohibit women from rid
ing astride their horses. The fact
that the policemen felt called upon
to arrest this woman shows the
force of conventionalities. It is un
usual and unconventional for women
to straddle horses. The policeman
had probably neyer seen one do so
before and he naturally concluded
that if other women do not straddle
horses it was wrong for this one to
do so and he arrested her accord
ingly. Killed in a Ball Game,
Washington, D. C, Sept. 10.
Benjamin F Myers, twenty years old,
was almost instantly killed today in
a ball game. He was sliding to sec

the baseman sprang into the air to
catch a thrown ball. He dropped
on Myers, his body falling on the
young man's neck and. d.slocating

Cobb, proprietor of the hotel, with

picked up a lamp and struck him
squarely in the face with it, thereby

rescue of Mr. Cobb, and rushed at
Cowles with 8ach weapons as lay at
hand, and Cowlen ran in the wash
room and shut himself in. The police
were called bv telephone and went
to work to disarm the man at once:
but he stood just inside the door and
threatened to use the hatchet on the
first man tbat came in reach.

soon on the ground, and great ex

futile attempts to get hold of the

Wants to Whip the Church.
Rikeigh, N. 0., September 6
There is much talk among the
church people by reason of the state
ment of Dr. Cyrus Thompson, the
new president of the North Carolina
Farmers' Alliance, in a public Bpeech
"that the church stands on the side
of human slavery." The religious
papers and not a few secular ones
are attacking Thompson. The editor
of the Caucasian, Senator Marion
Butler's paper says : "Dr. Thomp
son does not make an assertion nn
less he knows what he is saying,
He attacked the organized Church
and not Christianity - and he will
whip if there is a contest. The
truth is on the side of what he said.'

Deah Sir ; -
-1 ou are one ot the friends in

Dead lay the horse. Mr. Caldwell
said he has a big hog that will
weigh 500 pounds ; the hog came np,
it seemed, to take a last look at the
horse. While viewing the remains,

his horn into the hog. The hog
turned upon the bull and cut a big
gash into the boyine, whereupon the
