St. Pail, Minn., Sept. 5. As
threshing progresses throughout
t ho North went, the reports of large
yields of wheat Increase in number.
Devil' Lake, N. D., reiort fifty
bushel to the acre. Conservative
estimate place the yield of Minne
sota and Dakota at 125.000,000
bushel, ngaiust 90,000,000 bushels
last year. It is asserted that the
wheat crop of the three states
would fill a train 230 miles long.
This is the manner in which the
national funds of France are kept
secure from thieves: Every day
when the money is placed in the
vaults in the cellar, a lot of masons
ure on hand and wall up the doors
with hydraulic mortar. Water i
then turned on and kept running
until the cellar is flooded. Thus a
burglar would have to provide him
self w ith a diving suit and break
down a temeut wall before he conld
liegin work on the vaults. Wheu
the officers arrive in the morning
the water is drawn off, the ma
sonry, broken down and ine
vaults opened. It is difficult
to imagine how the most expert
burglar would penetrate all these
defenses, and certainly the treas
ure of the bank of France are bet
tor guarded than any in the world
The A. O. TJ. W., we believe,
has been the most successful or
ganization that this country has
ever seen, in the matter of the in
tegrity of its officers. During it
twenty -two years of history there
has been but one case of real defol
cation of a Supreme or Grand
Lodge officer could be justly
charirvd. and in this case the loss
to tho order was less than $2,000,
I tin safe to say tliat during this
time funds to tho amount of fifty
millions of dollars have passed
these officers. Well may we be
proud of tho record. Wo chal
lenge any business organization on
earth to lieat this record for the
'same length of time. .4, 0. F, II.

It i estimated that nearly a
thousand American citizen have
gone to Europe to wltiiam the ex
hibition of the supposed coot of
Jesus of Nazareth, which com
menced at Treves on August 18th.
To those who have not their atlaae
before them it may be well to
mention that Treves I a city of
Bhenisb Prussia, the oldnst munic
ipality In Germany, It in itnated
on tlie right bank of the Moaelle in
a lovely valley between vine i cov
ered hills, alxmt ninety-five mile
southwest of Coblentz. - Its famon
cathedral of St. Peter and St.
Helen retain considerable remain
in it interior of a previously exiaU
ing Itouian chnrch of the age of
Constant) ne. It cootaina nnmer
ous rich old chasubles, miaaait, and
famon rliea and among other the '
"Holy Coat," which J esteemed
It greatest treasure. The trad!-.
lion is that the coat was won In a
rafllo by a mldier of Aagnatna, wa
carried by him to Treves and was
there discovered in the fourth cen
tury by the Empress Helena, who
deposited it in the cathedra). The
Treve relics were concealed from
the Normans in the ninth century
in crypts, bnt the holy coat was
rediscovered in 1190 and then sol
emnly exhibited to the public gaze.
The next exhibition was In 1512
when, multitudes flocking to see
and venerate it, Leo. X appointed
it to be exhibited every seven year.
The reformation and war prevented
the observance of tlii.1 great relig
ious festival but it was celebrated
in 1810, and was attended by aeon. ,
couise of no fewer than 227,000
persons, and again in 1844 by still
greater multitudes. This is the
last time it has been placed on ex
hibition since 1844. .Whatever
opinion men may form as to the
genuineness of the relic it is a well '
established fact that Augustas was
particularly proud of Treves. No
place in Germany is so rich in the
