BREAD AND BUTTER BATTLE. An Incisive and Humorous Lecture by the Rev. G. L. Thompson—flow This Life Should be Lived—Some Striking Contrasts. Chicago Times. The Rev. G. L. Thompson, D. D., of Pittsburgh, Fa., on last evening lectured to a large audience at the Fifth Presby terian church, taking for his subject the "Bread and Butter Battle." The elo quent gentleman said that Plato's philo sophy should have ruled that the hu man brain, under no circumstances, should have weighed more than fifty ounces, as history had demonstrated that persons afflicted with weighty brains were at all times engaged in schemes looking to their personal ag grandisement and the grinding of the Doorer classes. Communism was not a plant of steady growth, but was occa sioned by supposed wrongs, brought about by persons clothed with the re sponsibilities of governing the masses. The idea, superb in itself, of a common government was only a despotic gov ernment under a softer name. In the United States there ar...

Always welcome is the poorest And th humblest to her door— Jofully she'll share with them From oat her humble sture. Now, there's nothing artificial About this little dame of Nature Merry is her ringing laugh, A -d a perfect form and feature Others may of their riches boast And their high-toned pedigree But this merry little maiden Is the little maid forme. A happy day it will be Waen I call this maiden mine The bells will ring out merrily And tbe orange 'blossoms twine. There are others, maybe fairer Than this dainty nymph to see— Bnt this merry little maiden Is the little maid for me. A SATANIC REVEN...
