The luncheon and dinner given by Mr. New house were informal affairs with no one present but the family, much to the regret of a lot of peo ple, but an arrangement very gratifying to the great singer. ti?V & 0& It eems funny that Professor Evan Stephens couldn't or wouldn't scrape up a dress suit for such an occasion as the Nordica concert. Not (hat it would add to hiB ability as a musician, but with Nordica magnificently gowned and Duss im maculate, Evan's oversight was, to say the least, uncomplimentary to performers and audience as well. t l The marriage of .Miss Harriet Friendly of Port land and Edward Rosenbaum of Salt Lake took place on...

GOODWIN'S WBBKLY- 16 " 1 Goshen and His Haltering Rams &?e Ogden K lection. Ogden, Oct. 16th. It appears from the press reports that Salt Lake's latest importation from Ogden, the Rev. IDlmer E. Goshen, has been using a battering ram on the orthodox religion with the astounding re sult that the infallible tenets based upon the di vinity of Jesus have been laid up for repairs. The assault was in the nature of a modern readjust ment of the creed that has been tottering on the brink of the grave since the thinking world con cluded to accept facts as opposed to the fictions of theology, and what Goshon did not do to the relics of superstition is not worth the "telling. Of course it will be difficult for those of us who have been nursed in the faith to swallow the compound dose of science and religion prepared by Goshen, M. D., but without doubt the after-taking sensation will be most agreeable. We are to believe that the martyr of Calvary was the greatest teacher and leformer of his...

Men from Hl ffl abroad come here and wonder that this Is not a H ( more pretentious city, with more trade and more H ! people. The reason is that the trade of the city By kr' is directly limited to a small area.

GOODWIN'S WBBKLY. 5 V The Campaign in Ogden Ng 7ocr iPeter of the Democracy Cannon and Glass man. Talk about the white het of the campaign! And get the baby stare fromtthe standbys of other years who have weathered the storms of politics when a nomination for a city office meant a fight that left the smoke of battle, red fire, an abund ance of coin, cracked heads, and sore hearts in its wake. Prattle of the chances of this or that man's election and get the derisive ha ha from nine sides, including the blind side. It's a cinch. It's worse. It is a hippodrome with a cakewalk finish; it is a lazy procession for the Republicans without an hysterical bray from the Democratic donkey to advertise its desolate plight. There's nothing to it. The election will be simply a legal formality. No noise, no war. Just an incident in the political log of the Republican candidates. & 5 & It is really painful.

She may have been in Europe, but I did not run across her. The name "'Audre," however, I learned, was as common in Fr'ance as "Helen" is here. In October, one afternoon about half after four, I was spinning along the avenue in my "Red Devil," when I again saw my beautiful Audre for so I always called her to myself. She had a small coin purse in her arm, and was pouring, literally pouring, its contents into the hands of an old woman whose face was horribly scarred by fire, and who was blJnd. Her carriage stood by the curb. She had alighted to perform this act of charity. I could not hear what she was saying, but I saw the illumined countenance of the aged beggar, whose afflictions, at least, were genuine. Again I tried to catch a glimpse of Audre's face.
