TUS wil It is quite often we fiad young people in the world who have ar- rived at the conclusion that it ¡a not well to live alone. Thia han been well proven thia week. Tuesday, January 16, at 11 o'clock, John A. Matcek, of thia city, and Miaa Sophia M. Polan- •ky, of Lyons, joined hands be- fore Hymen's altar at the home of the bride. A. few friends from Caldwell were in attendance, and owing to the rain quite a crowd was kept from attending the ball given in honor of the occasion Tuesday night. Mr. Matcek is well known here as the agreeable clerk for D. Levi, and Miss Polansky was one of the most popular and well-liked youn." ladies of her community. We wish them long life, happi- ness and prosperity. HOFKMAN-KOSKY.

The Spiritual Man. PÍ BY REV. JEFF D. RAY. m The bounty with which God ban supplied the inhabitants of the earth is an occasion of won- der. But if God has dealt with a bountiful hand in supplying the necessities of His creatures He has also dealt with a lavish hand in surrounding them with beauty. Not content that we should be abundantly supplied with all things useful, He has extrava- gantly decked our way with beau- ty. The golden sunset, the starry night, the snow-capped mountain, the flower-covered plain, the grass-bordered brook, the chorus of birds, the innocent face of childhood, the music of the human voice are evidences of God's love and care as unmistakable as any or all the things we call the neces- sities of life. It is not enough for God that a thing be useful; it is His will also that it shall be beauti- ful. If in selecting a site for Jeru- salem, the city of our God, an eye was had to a place that could be easily defended against invading armies, an eve was also had...

I fear I would be placed in the name predica- ment a fond parent was who took his three-year old hopeful with him for a first ride on the gulf. They had not proceeded far be- fore the philosophic parent was astounded by the following1 ques- tion: "Papa, what makes water vet?" and before he had time to limber up his imagination suffi- ciently to reply, he was thunder- struck by its companion, "say, j apa, how many buckets full of water in the whole ocean?" I do not mean to say that their influ- ence is un philosophic or incom- mensurable, but, as far as my ability to elucidate is concerned, it is. Suffice it to sav that we know the whole human tastily is influenced very much as the va- rious portions of matter sub- jected to a uniformly tempered atmosphere are. everything be- comes the same temperature.

The gathering wnn intended more aa a reunion than a celebration, though an ap- propriate program was carried out. In the morning the Masons met *t the Masonic hall, where the charter of the lodge was read, and from there they marched to the court house, forming quite an impoaing army. At the court house, an hour was spent in lis- tening to a very appropriate ad- dress by their distinguished vis- itor, Hon. W. K. Homan, deliv- ered in his fluent and impres- sively eloquent style. At about X o'clock a splendid repast was enjoyed at the vacant building on the Hudson block. In all there were about thirty- five visitors present, eight or ten different lodges being repre- sented. Many venerable old members of the lodge from dif- ferent parts of the county were seen in the crowd. The follow- ing is an incomplete list of the visitors present: R. M. Burns, ...

Miss May Rockett spent Satur- day and Sunday with homefolks, returning Monday. Master Roger, Mrs. Groce and Misses Carrie Farr and May Rockett were shopping in your city Saturday. Farmers are preparing to farm. Some have nearly all of their land broken, while others arc just commencing. Gardening is some- what backward. Mother Earth has decorated herself with a bright, new coat of grass and spring is here. (I don't think.—Ed.) Some farmers are going to plant oats in a few days.

mm There is open revolt in the re- publican ranks against a part of the McKinley programme. Sen- ator Piatt, of Connecticut, haa given notice of his intention to of- fer amendments to the adminis- tration bill providing govern- ments for Hawaii and Porto Rico, lie will amend both bills by mov- ing to strike out the clauses allow- ing each of the islands to send a delegate to congress, and in the case of Hawaii his amendment will provide for striking out all that portion the bill dealing with customs duties and a continuation of the present customs relations. Instead of free trade with Porto Rico, as the bill provides, Sena- tor Piatt's amendment provides for the collection of a duty on all articles from Porto Rico brought into the United States equivalent to 80 per cent, of the duty col- lected on similar articles from foreign countries, and for a duty in the same proportion to be col- lected in Porto Rico, on all goods from the United States.
