Minneapolis 1b to have the pleasure of hearing from the lecture platform the first of the prominent participants of the struggle to speak upon his experiences and observations. Winston Spencer Churchill, the bril liant young English war correspondent and veteran soldier, will appear in Min neapolis Jan. 18, at the Lyceum theater, under the auspices of the Teachers' Club. This lecture is not a part of the regular entertainment course, as the arrange ments for that were completed before Mr. Churchill decided ur-on his American tour.

SATURDAY EVENING. JANUARY 5, 1901. I Books and Authors Five Sisters— "Slaves of Chance" is a story of no little interest about the fate of five sisters in London, whose mama had an attenuated purse and wanted them married off well. The eldest married a poor clerk, who addressed himself to drink and billiards^ and the fate cf the others is recorded in thU book, whose author, Ferrier Langworthy, most admirably portrays the group of dis i interned girls who looked for relief iv mar riage. The story chiefly relates to Charley and Irene. The former ran away from the unhappy home and hired herself for ten shil lings a week to the proprietor of a theater and took roluor parts aud posed in various shows. Her life in a London lodging house is a feature of the tale, which reoords her act of sisterly devotion and seli'-saeriflce in re fusing to marry her well-to-do lover on the «>f the wedding because ehe discovered that he had been engaged to her sister Irene.

Tq» chorus of thirty strong young Toices singing a Christmas carol rose above the whirr of the thirty machines as the young seamstresses bent over their •work, industriously stitching seams, sew ing on wristbands and finishing collars. The sewing-room in the House of the Good Shepherd is a sunny place, large and j\x>my, with a generous number of windows to admit light and air. Down o«ne ride are the machines, over thirty of them, which are worked by electricity, and which the girls keep busy many hours of the day. They like to sing as they work, al though the soft strains of musje are lost in the busy hum of the machines. They like their work, the sunny room is a pleasant place in which to spend the mo mente and they sing because music best expresses the happiness that fills their hearts. The H...

Before leaving Peking each of us pro cured a Mannlicher rifle and a belt of ammunition from one of the Chinese ar senals that had fallen into the hands of the Japanese. From Peking to the Ming tombs is a considerable distance. The ride is through a thickly settled country, and at the time we made it the settlers ■ware far from friendly to foreigners, hence the escort of lancers.

Imagine the scramble everybody would be in. Judg ing from the tastes of the Juniors this, fortunately, is not the case. The kind of stories preferred varied in style from the very serious to the most humorous. Some wanted the plain, un rarnished truth, while others wanted the story to be as impos sible and improbable as it could be made by the active use of a vivid imagination. Some still remain true to their first love, fairy tales, but others have passed through various stages, such as stories of adventure, history, etc., and are likely to change ...

The stone had been washed up from the lake and when this friend of mine found it it was crumbling to pieces from' the heat of the sun. It was Just a common flat stone, black and brown m color. Almost in the center was a group of small shells arranged to form a cross. The shells were about the size of a small pearl button and were shaped like clam shells, only a great deal smaller. I wondered and wondered how mother nature could have put these shells in such an exact way, but as there are many things that I have yet to learn, that must be one of them.
