We had the pleasure of meeting Mr.

The Missionary Concert.
The Congregational chureh was well
filled Sunday night, it being the occa
sion of the home missionary concert.
The exercises were began by the rendi
tion of '-The Lord is my Shepherd," by
. the choir consisting of Mrs. Bardon,
Mrs. B. S. Huntington, Miss At water
and Miss Crandall, with Mrs. Bonny as
the organist of the evening. Next in
order came the reading of an essay by
Miss Annie Roberts, in a well modulated
1 voice and a pleasing manner, entitled "A
Strange Personal Experience, or what I
' ive I keep, and what I keep I lose."
The essay was written by Mrs. P. G.
Barrett of Hood River and was the fea
ture of the evening. If space can be
found during the week in the columns
of the Chronicle the essay will appear.
- Mrs. E. M, Wilson then took the plat-
lorm to present the cause of the Congre
gational church at Condon "and made a
( spirited and interesting appeal for aid
which met with a generous response in
money by the audience. A hymn by
the choir was followed bv a short and
Eloquent address by the pastor. The
exercises throughout the evening were
k varied and interesting and we only re
gret that we' have not more space for a
BET. ME. CURTIS' SEEM02T. .
At the Congregational church yester
day the pastor took his text from Isaiah
111 6, "A litttle child shall lead them."
Supposed reference to the prevalence
of the Mesaiaric kingdom, which shall
be an era of peace and righteousness,
when the sword and the spear shall be
replaced by implements of husbandry
and enterprise. Seven hundred years
after the word of prophecy was re
affirmed with angellic voices declaring
the birth of the Messiah and proclaim
ing "Glory be to God in the highest, and
on earth peace, good will toward men."
Not yet has this good time come, not
yet do we see violence and selfishness re
placed by the rule of right and love
the supremacy of the moral and spiritual
elements. But for all that we are hot of
those who believe that the world is go
ing. God is at work with the nations
and with men, building from the) foun
dations, first that which is natural and
afterward that which is spiritnal.
At the time of the redeemer, to all in
tents and purposes, modern Europe had
no existence. Spain, France, Russia
and Austria were sunk in barbarism.
Brittain, almost as completely as this
country, was below the horizon. Egypt
and Syria were sinking fast. The power
of the world lay in Italy Greece and
Palestine. The power of Palestine was
in moral and spiritual element which
was to give law and power to the world.
She herself has gone under but the
power of her civilization asserts itself in
eve;y nation that has ascendency in
modern civilization. The power of the
world is in Christian bands (nominally
so at least, giving pledge and prophecy
of the complete control of right and love.
The time may be far off but it is com
ing. More and more the light is appear
ing ; the day is becoming broader and
fuller. That is the kind of power which
is to rule.
; The tet tells us also of the kind of
character which is to prevail in the com
ing age the child character, in which,
if you will analyze it, you will discover
among others, these elements :
First, Innocence; it is this which
makes it necessary that to enter the
kingdom of God we must become as
little children. The task of the child is
to retain its innocence; the man must
regain it. It is no arbitrary requirement
but of such is the kingdom ; that is the
rule of God in the earth and universe.
Second: The spirit of childhood is a
spirit of faith trust in father, mother,
friend, God. .The religion of childhood
and youth is to keep this spirit. . When
the man has lost it he can only enter
the kingdom of God and become a part
of it by retaining the faith of his child
hood. It must be so and thus his child
spirit becomes his guide : "A little child
shall lead them." '
Thirh More definitely may it be said
that God develops the moral and spirit
ual life of the world through the child
ren. We teach the children but they
teach us full as much and more than" we
teach them, for it is through them that
we learn the real meaning of the great
word we use in our religion, parent, love
and self sacrifice. Back of the industries
of the world is the force of the love we
bear our children. One of the greatest
of English barristers is said to have
remarked that he never pleaded a case
without feeling his children tugging at
his coat tails, meaning, I suppose, that
their support and education and qualifi
cation for position and usefulness in the
world was an ever present thought and
stimulus to him.
Behold how this love new bbrn in the
woman, who but a year or two ago was
a thoughtless belle, transforms her into
a very providence of God for the help
less babe on her bosom. See, too, how
with men who seem to have no other
thoughts the day and the week through
but business ; the thought of the little
child rules them. Often will such stop
in the very midst of the most pressing
work to tell of the bright-eyed beauty at
home, or with tearful eye and trembling
voice of the little boy that died, and
heaven is more real and nearer because
of him. "A little child shall lead them."
Let us seek the happiness of all about
us but let our hearts be turned as they
will, especially to the children as we
come to the day we love, be of its asso
ciation with the advent of Him who was
born in Bethlehem of Judea. While we
seek to lead the children aright and fill
their lives with joy, they will as surely
lead us and minister to our larger and

An Argument Against Corsets.
A little comedy was enacted in a store.
The place was one where nothing but
ladies' underwear of the most exquisite
description is sold. Such positively de
licious little articles in delicately tinted
silks cannot be found elsewhere, and to
make the display still more interesting
the proprietor not only has gay bunches
of chrysanthemums and roees stack in
huge vases about the room, but the
yotmg women who act as clerks are noble
specimens of physical girlhood. One of
these, a perfect legendary amazon in
point of figure, was waiting on a very
scrawny and flat customer on the day in
question..-. That useful but very un
romantic item of feminine structure, the
corset, was undergoing a careful exam
ination by the purchaser, who finally
settled upon a pair that was valued at
the superlative figure of $40.
No one but a woman of fashion knows
how corsets can be made to cost this
much money,. but the txnescapable fact
remains that they can, and therefore the
young lady of the flat figure evinced no
surprise at the price of this especial pair.
After saying that she would take them
she looked carefully at the glorious
shapeliness of the girl who was waiting
upon her, and said:
"You have an admirable figure. I
presume you wear corsets from your own
"Oh no," replied the girl. "I could
not afford to do that."
"Indeed," said the customer. "Why,
I should not think such a form as yours
could be attained without the aid of the
most expensive corsets. Pray tell me,
howjmnrh do yours cost yon?" '
"Nothing," replied the clerk, with a
blush ; ' ,
'Oh, you have them given to yon?"
, "No," responded the girl.
? "Well, I don't understand yon then."
"My corsets are are well, Trmjar j
never wear any," explained the confused
Thia ended the conversation. The rich
woman paid for her corsets, and left the
shop wondering why the world is made
o unequal as it is. New York Sun.
An Heiress' Yearly Expenses.
A short time ago Mrs. William S.
Eagan, of East Sixty-fourth street, peti
tioned Judge Beach in the court of com
mon pleas to have $4,000 of her late hus
band's estate set aside for the education
and maintenance of her little daughter
Josephine Eagan, aged 7, of whom she is
guardian. A cry of horror and astonish
ment was raised among the relatives and
lawyers at the stupendous demand, but
Mrs. Eagan knew what she was about
and presented an itemized account of
probable expenditures. Here it is:
Ice per month, $5 $60; household ex
penses, $1,920; toys, books an? dolls, $50;
governess, $150; nurse, $180; music les
sons, vocal, $60; clothing, shoes, hats,
etc, $500;. laundry $50; medical treat
ment for nervous disorders, $400.
This bill is interesting in showing the
disparity between the professions of
nurse and governess. The $500 item for
clothing may seem extravagant, but as
an heiress to a $200,000 estate there is no
reason why Miss Josephine should not
wear Irish embroidered muslin frocks,
Persian lamb topcoats, French kid boots,
Rembrandt hats with ostrich plumes,
and-sheer linen and pressed flannel un
dergarments; but how these delicate
things can be washed and ironed on $50
a year, which is less than $1 a week,

Some Pretty Literary Women.
In London they are bringing np the
question again as to whether literary
women are always ugly. Now, they are
not, by a long manner of means. . You
see, too often fame comes to them when
age is beginning to appear. New York
can boast of some extremely pretty wo
men who earn their living by their pens.
Ethel Richmond, who is just now
abroad, looks like a dainty little lady
who has just stepped off an Easter card.
Mrs. Percy, tall, slender and dark, with
magnificent eyes, looks' like a Spanish
woman. Lillie Hamilton French is an
other dark beauty. Frances Williams
has great, soft eyes, beautiful brown
hair and a skin that any society girl
might be envious of. There is Agnes
Russell, dark and with a chic air that is
essentially' French. Why, one could
keep on for half an hour telling of the
women who are pretty, and are at
tractive, and are well dressed, while the
dowdies could be counted off on your
fingers, and are really the exceptions
that prove the rule. New York Sun.
Exquisite Salt Cellarv.
One of the latest and most dainty
things in individual salt cellars is a full
blown rose or chrysanthemum in cameo
glass, the delicate, translucent buff or
crimson petals of which overlap each
other and leave the heart of the flower
hollow. These artistic salt cellars are
sold at $10. They are made by that En
glish house which finally discovered
cameo glass, the secret of the famous
Portland or Barberini vase, which so
long baffled the skill of potters and glass
workers New York Tribune.
