As on the steps they sat in bh's",
One Milliliter evening fair,
lie claimed from her a lover's kNs
Eor every falling star.
The fair one llrst demurred to this,
As became a modest maid.
Hut what damsel e'er refused to kis
When a darling lover prayed ?
Her warm heart even prompted her
To call her sweet-heart's eyes
To every falling meteor
That llashed along the skies.
And when a lire fly chanced to flare
Atliwart that Milliliter sity
"There goes another falling star,"
Tlie artless maid would cry.
At length her bright eyes saw a star,
On the horizon beaming,
Dancing and Hitting front afar,
Xow lost then brightly gloaming.
She got him down to steady gains
By that illusive ray
'Twas hut a lantern switching train
About two miles away.

Bert Curry, who recently had his
breast bone seriously injured by the
fall of a horse, is around again.
Mr. John Irwin, who sold his farm
of SO acres, a short time since, to a
Mr. Ora, of Cornucopia, for $1000, has
departed with his family for his old
homo in Nebraska.
We are informed by Mrs. Lama Ir
win, who returned not long since from
the funeral of her daughter, Miss Em
ana Laura Coggan, of Tacoma, that
although her daughter died Tuesday
morning and she did not arrive in
Tacoma until Friday morning, that
she was still in time to attend the
funeral which took place that after
noon. All arrangements for tho fu
neral were made before tho mother ar
rived and were in harmony with tho
mother's wishes as well as with tho
circumstances of the youthful heiress
thus cut down in the bloom and beauty
of early womanhood. All that kind
ness and sympathy could do was done
to comfort the mother, who finds a
melancholy pleasure in the thought
that all that money and sympathizing
friends could do was done to minister
to her only daughter's last hours on
earth. When Miss Coggan visited her
home in Pino this summer she looked
unusually well. One can scarcely
realize that she sleeps now in tho
silent tomb; truly has tho ioet said
of Doath :
"We know when moons shall wane,
When .Summer birds from far shall cross

Married. At tho residenco of the
bride's mother, Nov. 10, by Rev. Ira
Wakefield, Presiding Elder of the M.
E. church, Miss Susio Lloyd, of Pine,
to Mr. A. W. Parker, of Eaglo valley.
Miss Lloyd was ono of our handsomest
and moat estimable young ladies. Mr.
Parker is a successful teacher and
prosperous farmer of Eagle valley, but
for nil that tho beaux are growling
around, saying, "What business hud
ho to como over here and tako ono of
'our girls'?". However, all unite in
wishing them smooth sailing on the
nea of Matrimony.
Mr. John McFndden, while working
on a building a short timo ago, met
with a serious accident which resulted
in the loss of an eye. Ho was driving
a nnil when ho probably gave it an ac
cidental slanting stroke causing it to
fly, and striking him in tho eyo burst
tho eyeball. Could tho silicon) sympa
thy of friends avail to restore his eye
sight, it would bo restored.
Itemizing is like you say, Mr. Edi
tor: "No editor or correspondent can
get all tho items going, unaided."
Sometimes wo think thero isn't much
to write, and in a retired place lilo
this, and not "rustling for itoniH," wo
don't always hear what there is until
it is old. Poople know we corr.poad
for Sconr. if they care towo nutrii
ngos, births, death, etc, anionu the
items to SrotT, it might not he n'ni-
to let us know, unless tliry prefer t
send them direct to the editor.
And now Rumor My the king is
not only "in the parlor et)tttitt out
his money" to see if ho has enough to
set up in housekeeping, but thit ho
has already, on the sly, taken unto
himself a queen of his heart and homo.
Don't know how true it is, but just
think it awful mean if he has. No
chance for the fellows to charivari
("Miiveree") or the reporter to r port
him until late in the day. No cards,
no cake, no invite, no "psutikelaiV

At 10:30 o'clock Cardinals Gibbons ;
and Tascherenn nnd a large retinue of
priivta arrived by special train and
shortly afterward began the exercises.
1 Cardinal Gibbons, in his robe's of scar
j let, heading a long procession of dis
tinguished prelates, first blessed the
! building, sprinkling holy water on tho
I walls and followed by a great choir
! chanting the "Miserere." Tho eernio
( nies seemed interminable.
' At the conclusion of the dedicatory
', services, the dignitaries of tho church
! and invited guests to tho number of
I three hundred, repaired to the athletic
, hall beneath tho chapel. Tho two
Cardinals mt side by side. To their
; right sat Rev. .Mgr. Satelli, swarthy,
j alow, dignified, tho Papal envoy. To
' their loft smiled the familiar face of
j Secretary I'laine, Secretaries 'Windom,
! Noble, Tracy, Rusk and Proctor and
I Attorney-General Miller. Postmaster
i General Wanainaker's absence seemed
i conspicuous. Tho fust toast was "Ilia
(Holiness Popo Leo Nil I." Mgr. Sa
J telli responded in Latin, which of
course only the clergy understood well
enough to appreciate.
A wild burst of applause greeted
Mr. Blaine when ho arose to respond
to the toast of "Our Country and tho
President." Tho speech was very
carefully prepared and tho speaker
took care to avoid any strong eulogy
of tho Roman Catholic church. It
was an ondotsement in a goneral way
of morality and education and religious
liberty. Very clever, Mr. Iilaine.
While Cardinal Tascherean wis
speaking in French of "Sister Univer
sities," President Harrison entered the
hall and was greeted with iinnienso
cheers. He was followed by Vice
President Morton and Mrs. Morton.
The president boro the expression that
is generally attributed to a feline in a
strango garret. Tho audience insisted
upon a speech and in a few short hal
ting sentences Mr. Harrison thanked
them for their warm reception. It was
a characteristic speech, spoken only in
a sense of deep duty, and fell on the
enthusiasm of tho crowd like a wet
sponge. A child might have known
that tumpost-tossed seas of old preju

Wo publish by request the following
lecture recently delivered by Mr. J.
Newman. Ho said :
L.iiiiKfeANn Gknti.kmkn: 1 wish to.
tell you some things I heard and saw
at the convention of tho Oregon State
Secular Union held at Portland, Ore
gon lust month. The object of this
convention was to organizo what they
call a State Secular Union, which was
accomplished with great enthusiasm.
Thoy propose next to havo county or
ganizations and then town organiza
tions. They had some of tho ablest
speakers, both men and women, that
California, Washington and Oregon
could produce, and some from tho eas
tern states. California and Washing
ton, no doubt, will bo the noxt to or
ganizo. The object of this organization
is to oppose tho union of church and
state. Mon and wonion of every faith
and creed may join it.
As I said, tho main object of tho or
ganization is to maintain thu entire
separation of church and state, and
cultivate a lovo of liberty, of truth, jus
tice, equity and country. Perhaps in
the days of Saul tho son of Lish, tho
first king of Israel, is tho first instance
wo havo of tho connection of church
and state, and it worked badly with
Isreal from that timo on as long as
sho was a nation. In spito of all tho
prophets could Bay and do tho kings
would go to battle. They would say,
"Theso men of God prophesy evil,"
and two or thrco kings would get to
gother and hold a council and say,
"Wc can whip them anyway," and
nino times out of ton thoy would got
I do not know of a nation to-day in
which church and state is not more
or less connected except tho United
States, and it appears there is somo
effort being made to accomplish that
in tin's country.
Ono speaker in tho convention said'
ho had beou put into prison in tho
eastern states for not believing, and
another man was put in tho same pris
on for believing. When men aro put
into prison for their religious opinions
or belief, it looks as though church and
state was getting very closo togethur.
Thoy say tho declaration of indo
poud'tneo is tho first declaration of
Free Thought over given to the world,
and must remain inviolate. They say
.ye aro not afraid of free thought, but
we are afraid of thought, bound,
They had a beautiful banner on tho
platform with tho inscription, "Uni
versal Mental Liberty." That, frionds,
