district subject to any regular action of the Democratic party WE most heartily ftcotmtiend to the young people of this com munity the Christian Endeavor Society whicli is held each Wednesday evening at the Presbyterian church A short time since we had the pleasure of attending and if there be a place this side of the New Jerusalem where the stony heart can be made one lof flesh and the nobler sentiments aroused where the sins to which we poor muckworms ot this earth are ever heir to can be brought again before the minds eye with humble repentance therefor if there be a place where the Bible is i intelligently and impressively read tt and taught and prayer from conse crated hearts sent heavenward it is there While we are not as pious ras Christ would have us be we are not as perniciously bad as the devil would desire We have drank of the dregs and tasted of luscious sweets sipped froin golden goblets and wandered into lawns and parks where the melody ot the birds mingled their sweet notes with the music of the rippling rills as they pebble their way to the sea But that service brought back a thousand memories ofmingled regrets and delights filled our soul with a sincere desire to be of the greatest help to the greatest number Miss Mary D Cox vas the leader andas such J proved her ability to successfully steer the ship of a religious service She was ably supported by Dr and Mrs Ewers L B Adams Miss Maud Coble Miss Dove Letcher Ernest and Gladen Ewers If thist Society is kept thoroughly alive for a few years it will prove a great blessingto all and more especially to the young people of the College Much has been saidof late con cerning Christianity in the schools and colleges Upon inquiry we find that in the University of Ne braska 85 per cent of the students fare members of the church 65 per cent at John Hopkilis Yale 65 percent But the most surprising report comes from Park College Mo where Prof Scroggs located after leaving here which shows all but 9out of 362 students are Christians Therefore we say long may the college flourish with its refining inflhence and religious training long may the Christian Endeavor live with its prayer for the wicked and nourishment for the righteous THE tide of public sentiment i against the outrage on Porto Rico rises with increasing force everyday The most striking indica tOll of it is the

under the provisions of the Goebel Election Law Not so The section of the Constitution providing for such contest was en acted in the Constitution in 1799 and reenacted in the Constitutions of 1850
