We may well exclaim with Shakespeare 4 Give me advantage | of some brief discourse." It is evident that lectures are a most useful means of promoting the intellectual and political welfare of any nation. Long ages ago the theories of science were made known by the power of voice and gesture. Ptolemy, Copernicus, Kepler and Gallio were enabled to teach the people the grand truths of our solar system in this way. Our president has instituted a most useful and entertaining method of instructing his pupi s on subjects which cannot well be learned thrnugh text books, and while we have this especial privi- lege, !etus not be-elc* to recognize and appropriate to ourselves that which will better qualify ns for social and practical li e and render us more capable of enjoying and appreciating the blessings of the All wise God.

Bound fountain in Oomanche County. | This mountain is about six miies; west of Comanche, the capital city. It is about one half mile high, al- most round and can be seen from most of the adjoining counties, and is a great guide for traveling people. It has a variety of small trees; the water oak grows taller than any other, being six feet high. The trees extend about half way to the bottom, then it'is prairie for several miles around. Fruit in this section is very abundant, such as plums, grapes, algereta berries, and pears. The plums are of three different kinds, the little yellow hog plum that ripens in July, then a large red one that ripens further along in the sum- mer, and then the large winter variety. There are two kinds of -grapes, the large blue, and the small fox grapes, "he algereta berries are something like the currents we buy; they grow on a very thorny little bush from two to four feet high which is green summer and winter. This section is famous for bear grass, as mo...

We were much troubled at this message, and could hardly believe it true because there was no chimney at the church for him to comedown; but when we went our presents were there sure enough, and I suppose the good old fellow must have squeezed himself up very small indeed and cotne down the stove pipe.

But, exclaim some of our critics, you say nothing of the terrible wickedness that prevails every- where.

A PI A r Sr.'- The Origin and Advantages of the Theater The origin of the theater may be traced to a very remote period—to one long before the Christian Era. Indeed the origin is so remote that it is almost im- possible to say exactly when it had a beginning. One author has said that 4 the elements of the theater are to be sought in an age far antecedent to all regular his- toric record." History informs us that at a very early period poeple in their savage state were accustomed to imitate manners and customs practiced among themselves. This was not confined to any particular place, but we find that it was the custom among the inhabitants of Peru via, China and even among the savages of the islands of the South Sea. Greece being one of the most civilized countries of antiquity, aud noted for great wisdom and power, the tenor of our minds is naturally in this direction. We may commence by saying that Tliespis is the inventor of the thea- ter, and continue by describing the rapid adva...

Street Railways Abroad. Horse-car railways are an American invention, and have been introduced in- to every town in this country having 20,000 inhabitants or more. In New York there are nearly 560 miles of street railroad, but in Europe the mileage of these tramways, as they are there call- ed, are relatively small. In the United Kingdom in 1882 there were only 563 miles of road, of which seventy were in London and 118 in Manchester. In the sane year there were only 327 railways in France, of which 155 were in Paris. Our New York elevated road system is, go far, ahead of the world; but Berlin boasts of an elevated road seven miles long, the motive power of which is electricity.
