Tresident Cleveland in hi? inesi;e to
congress concerning 1 tie uunan aiiair
of an amicable nature. He rerotauiriids
settlement upon Spain granting local
sell government under the sovereignty
of Spain as the most feasible p'an under
presetit condition?. The Cubans have
no faith in the proumes of Spain and
therefore are opposed to any temporiz
ing arrangements.
This spirit of the Cubans tho president
recognizes to exiit and that they are
Btill determined to hold out. While
such a state of affairs contiunes, neither
party are able to maintain anything Hie
a covernment, except on paper, the presi
dent does not recommend to congress
the advisabilitv cf recognizing either
belligeratit rights to the Cubans or an
acknowledgement of their independence.
fie does object, however, to the
United States allowing any other power
acquiring control over Cuba, ihe prest-
seems disposed to allow congress to pur
suits course in the matter without any
executive recommendation, li- gives
congress no advice nor recommends any
line of action. Heading between the
lines it is plainly perceived his sym
pathies are with the Cubans in tbeir
B'.rngsle for independence.

Rev. F. L. Coilier in ihs
Hail, ia discuising the merits
stage said in part :
of the
"There is an old and plausible theory
that if Christian people would all agree
to sustain an entirely unexceptional
performers, the theatre would be regen
erated. It is a lamentable fact that this
has proved to be an "iriedescent
dream." The experiment has net
proved successful when fairly attempted.
The theatre manager is not a profe
ional philanthropist ; be "runs" bis busi
ness simply and solely to make money,
He produces what pays best ; and if he
can spice bis evening entertainment
with a plot that turns on some sort of
sexual depravity, or burlesque of evan
gelical religion, or a shameless exposure
ot physical beauty, the temptation to
fill his coffers is too strong to be resisted
The licentious stage and the Sabbath
breaking press are both conducted for
filthy lucre; and the Christian who con
tiibntes to the support of either or both
is responsible for the spiritual mischief
that they work.
A Christian needs recreation as much
bp any one else; but that recreation only
is fit for a true Cnristian nhtch makes
the body healthier, tho mind clearer,
and the immortal powers more vigorous.
Whatever endangers self-purity and in
names evil paseions is a einiui amuse
ment. Wherever a Rervaut cf Christ
cannot take his Master with him, he
bas no right to eo; wherever he cannot
ask a b!eeM"g on t.!a?ure, he ha no
buxiiifps o le L' him try iliis umplo
test on the average theatre, anl he will
find that the outside of the plav-housu is
the right side. There are certainly
enough innocent and wholesome recre
ations without vcntnriug upon one of
doubtfnl morality much lets upon one
which has wrought spiritual shipwreck
upon thousands of souls. If the theatre
has not helped many toward heaven, it
has assuredly been to multitudes, es
pecially of tho young, a gateway to per
dition. Jesus Christ commands His followers
to "come out and be separate;" ho
drew a sharp, distinct dividing line be
tween th6 "walking in tho Spirit" and
fulfilling the lusts of the flash between
the pleasures of sin and the pleasures of
a clean heart and useful life. Thero is
a tendency in these self-indulgent days
to reduce this lino to a mere chalk mark,
easily rubbed out? And when that di-
rroing line is entirely eifaced, then the
nominal Christian and the lreoplo ol 1 lie
world cau dance together iu the cams
ball-room, sit together around the same
decanters of wiue, and occupy adjoining J
bosesin tho sarco theatre! How lone
will it tale for such a Christianity to
convert this world to the Bervico of
From tho above extract it appears

Thu .Mental Culturo Club of Roseburg
held its first annual meeting, Saturday
afternoon iu tho Firemen's Hall.
Flans of work for tho ensuing year were
discussed and tho annual election of
officers took placo rosulting as follows :
President, Mrs. G. It. Child ; 1st vice
president, Mrs. Flint; 2nd vico presi
dent, Mrs. Aikon; 3rd vice president,
Mrs. Godficy; secretary, Mrs. A. Sheri
dan ; assistant secretary, Mrs. ead ;
treasurer, Miss Howell.
Bv reoueat Mrs. Child submits for
publication her report to tho club mem
Our secretary's book gives, think,
December 21, 1805, as the birthday ol our
club. I piefer to think that the birthday
was in November, and that that later
date was the christening, the giving the
annronrLite name. "The '1)3 Mental
Culture Club."
Before I begin my annual report, I do
not think it out of place to dwell upon
the annronriatcness of this title, to
dwell upon how much the word "cul
turo" ought to mean tp every one in gen
eral, to our club members in particular
It is a word that has becomo almost
hackneyed to some, iu its meaning of a
uiero smattering of book knowledge,
with the addition of some uf the polith
of society. But I waut to impress upon
vou tho real worth of the word. I shall
tell vou what the crea'.eat teacher of
true culture in modern literature, Mat
thew Arnold, save about culture: "It is
in niakiug endless additions to itself, in
tho endless expansion of its powers
endless growth in wisdom and purity
that tho spirit of tho human race fiuds
its ideal. To reach this ideal, culturo is
an indispensable aid. Tint is the true
value of culture, Not a having and a
resting, but a groiung and a t ecoming
is human character as culture coLceives
it. Here tho culture coinctdc3 with re
liiion." One of the first motives Arn
old goes ou to tell ns a great French
writer says: "One of the tirai motives
which ought to impel us to ttcdy is to
rendrr an intelligent being yet more in
telligent." The next etep Arnold Rivec,
is not merely the endeavor to see and
leirn but the endeavor to make the see
ing and learning prevail. This author
S3 often uses a term from Dean Swilt
tint this terra has passed into literature
as Matthew Arnold's definition of cul
ture. It is the words "Sweetness and
Light." I want voa to remember the
union of thoso two words not merely
because they rightly hae become to
famous, but lecause they are so true
Can you find a shorter, truer definition?
Swcc'ncss meaning the human kindli
ness. Luht meaniug the willingness to
learn and help others to learn? Dt you
not see that culture is the pursuit of
perfection, and perfection is the pursuit
of "Sweetness and Light."
To retell tho history ot onr year s
work teems almost unLecetsary for you
all kuow it so well. I need only to
po:nt to the handsome bookcase and its
contents the Encyclopedia Britannica.
That represents something that we
have accomplished. Stiil it is
pleasant to recall today the determina
tion with which we began our work a
year ag Pleasant to recall that echo
in our hearts, to the pessimist's "Oh
that club won't live long," is forever
stilled. We are only a year old, and if
we have not increased in numbers, we
have iu strength. Better still, we enter
upon our second year with increased de
termination, and the ability to tell the
pessimist, if there be a solitary one left,
that we are known by our works, that
we still live, and what is better, shall
continue to live.
Wby enumerate the thinj we have
done? Onr maiden efforts of the IV:
bate and "The Bridgo" were fully ap
preciated. The misgiving vou all felt
about a pottery exhibit melted into thin
air when you each discovered what
treasures you had, and how the few
reices from each made a collection we
were all proud of. 15ut the history of
one entertainment is Ibe history of all.
We did not kpow what we could do, or
what we weuld like till we tried. Our
beat eucce-s is that wo are willing to try
azain and think that nothing now is be-'
yond everjone's capacity of enjoyment.
I want to make a brief references to
tbe weekly meetings. I, as leader of
two sections tbnnk you heartily for tho
interest you have taken and the vtork
you have accomplished, beset as you
are with difficulties and hampered by
tho lack of books. Tho musical directors
too, join me in the thanks. Wo would
like to have you answer these questions
to youreelf. Has the year's studnng
interfered materiallv with your house
hold duties? Has it not rather tended
to help you, especially along the line cf
your children's education? Will you
count to yourself how many books you
have been lead to read, either wholly or
in part? How much more interest in
other thiugs'.' With this mental re
sume can you not bo glad you have kept
tho club alive by your prueenco and en
couragement? For a club without
tnatnbers would be like the play of Ham
let with Hamlet left out.
The next year's work is at hand.
Having bo?un so early in October, we
can feel free to closo by the first of May,
earlier, if tho busy time of spring sew
ing presses. After n well spent winter
our conscience will not even lind the
tii-Lt of April too early.
My report cannot be all in tho major
key of joyousness. Tho minor key of
soi row must bo struck when I refer lo
ourioas of Mrs. Kapp. Our apprecia
tion of her worth aud her appteciation
of thu work were mutual. Wo feel that
a set and formal expresiiou of our sor
row ia to-j cold too tiiuauitiglef-e, for sbo
has gone fro.u a circle of intitnato
friendj, nut from a r.ule-bouud associa
tion. Thus it is that all of us foul that
our sympathy is best told in our own
quiet way, each ouo missing her from
her accustomed chair mid oau'i one usy
itig huw im licit we niicfc her.
As I close, I must touch upon the har
mony that has pervaded everything we
do. I do not think anv one has felt tho
pettinesses that haye alwayti been attri
buted to women when they are associ
ated with each other. Is not this very
flexibility, this kindliness of spirit one
of the rewards of culture pursues for cul
ture's sake? May this kindliness, this
pursuit of awoGtiiesi and light abido with
us always.

It is often the forerunner of serious ill
