The Seattle Daily i'l Itttrlttyewei i
has entered on its eighth 'iir. 1? i- an
enterprising newspaper, is edili! with
ability and is a credit to the city in which
it is published. It is a litiiv ahead of
Seattle but a neaf paper has to be .some
what in advance of actual requirement.
How the proprietors of the IJot-lntellt-yeneer
can run such a newspaper and
make a live of it has alwavs been sur
prise to us.
At a certain school recently the teacher,
in a general exercise, wrote tho word
"dozen" on the blackboard, and asked
the pupils to each write a sentence con
taining the word. She was somewhat
taken aback to find on one of the papers
t ho following unique sentence: "I dozen
know my lesson." If that boy lives he
will bo doing tho funny business in the
local columns of some newspaper in the
henco years.
Tho concert at th? M. 12. church last
evening was an artistic success. First on
the programme camo a chorus of ladies
with piano and concert accompaniment,
followed by a solo by H. G. Smith. A
reading by Mrs. Y. S. "Kinney preceded a
vocal duet bv Mrs. F. It. Stokes and Miss
Connolly, when Mrs. "W. S. Kinney fa
vored the audience with another rending,
after which camo the refreshments and
'good night."
A good many of us were aransed and in
terested at the minstrels tho other night
when Charley Iteed turned on his electric
diamond pin, and from his shirt front
camo tho gleam of a miniature electric
light. There are great possibilities in
that littlo light which seems like the
first faint gleam of a new star in tho
eastern horizon. It may be in a brief
timo we may have an electric lamp as
handy and portable as the present coal

An invitation to join in the formation
of a northwest coast press association
has been 6ent from Portland to every
newspaper ollicoin Oregon and Washing
ton. Uhe object of tho association is
stated to be, "to promote tho courtesies of
life and the amenities of journalibm
among ourselves as well as tho business
interests of tho press of tho northwest."
The courtesies and amenities certainly
stand in sad need of promotion, nnd the
business interests might also be helped
thereby. Tho idea is a good ono and de
serves "tho hearty co-operation of those
most interested in its successful adop
tion. From a privato letter received by a
Portland butcher, it is learned that

In Liberty county, Gn., a negro preach- j
er was conducting a series of revival
meetings, and one night had a dozen men
and women Iyiug prostrato beforo him.
According to the custom, he was Hitting
up all night with these couvcrl.s, preach
ing to the small band of spectators who
were helping him to sit it out. Finally
getting frantic nt tho way ono man held
out, ho cried: "De word ob God shall
break dat man down!" And, so saying,
ho seized the pulpit biblo and struck the
obstinate man on tho head with it, fell
ing him to tho floor, and thus .securing
another victim. I have Jheard omo ab
original preaching around on Magnolia
btreet at tho Fourth African Baptist
church here. Th6" orator was preaching
on the text ''Dis am do place ob a skull."
Ho began with an account of Cleopatra
and her asp, referring to tho latter as be
ing "not simply painiui, but inortlv.
. derin, fearful mortly." Then
lowed an account of tho goddess Ijenlah,
and tho civilization of Uabylon in the
days of Darius (accent on the first sylla
ble). He centinued: "Man is lost in
his own destiny. Some is lost by 'sua
sions, and some "by Imno'tations'. Yo'
