    WASHINGTON, June 21.—President Me-
Kinley, by announcing that he had begun
negotiations for another Anglo-American
arbitration treaty immediately after send-
ing in the Hawaiian annexation treaty, un-
doubtedly desired to make the impression
‘that his foreign policy would not be of the
jingo variety, hut would he characterized
"by the friendliness for all nations, espe-
cially for Great Britain, which he ex-
pressed in his inaugural address. .
Whether he is able to bring about the
conclusion of another arbitration treaty, or
having done so, to secure its ratification by
the Senate or not, he has made the position
of his administration clear by this act.
"Although Senators generally would look
with much more friendliness at a treaty of
arbitration with Great Britain which Pres-
ident McKinley had negotiated than they
did on that which was negotiated by Sec-
retary Olney and sent in by President
Cleveland, no matter if the new one dif-
fered but very little from the old one, they
have no idea that. President McKinley
would, in the face of the known objections
of the Senate, duplicate the Olney-Paunce-
fote treaty.
They say generally that any treaty of
arbitration with Great Britain
anything more than a name would have
_very ‘little chance of securing the neces-
sary two-thirds vote in the Senate next
winter without most active effort on the
part of the administration, which by that
time will have filled most of the offices and
will therefore have less influence with the
Loyal Democrats.

share of the public’s patronage in his pro-

‘many . stances is sadly neglected by some
doctors, after they have diplomas.

Miss Mary Kreamer’s Sunday school class

years of age.. The program opened with mu-

cited by Mabel Keller. Blanche Taylor also

respondent is in receipt of a communication
commenting upon the sermon delivered by
Rev. Rearick iff the Lutheran church, Sun-
day night, June 13th, in which he touched
on dancing and card-playing. The author of
the article referred to does not dance nor
countenance gambling, hence it cannot be
said that it is the wincing of a galled jade.
Here are his words, which it will be seen
leaves the question whether dancing and card-
playing are right or.wrong to the individual.
Hear him :—
Mr. Watchman Correspondent :—‘ Please send
these pages to the DEMOCRATIC WATCHMAN,
which is largely read in this locality, and
ask for its publication.” % .
““Itis my intention to correct what I think
are errors in a .sermon delivered by Rev.
Rearick, last Sunday . evening, from a text
found in the thirty-second chapter of Exodus
and remarks as to dancing based on the nine-
teenth verse. In the first place, the text
does not suggest a line of thought such as
was given 1n the discourse, but has to do en-
tirely with idol worship—idolatry. Dancing
-and card-playing were not hinted at as being
the gods worshiped by those following the
{ amusement, else there might have been a
| foundation for the remarks.” ‘
‘It was asserted ‘that to those who could
not play cards or dance, the arts were no temp-
tation I" Is that true? No! Emphatically,
no! We say this to correct impressions made
upon hearers, rather than the ministers, who
now believe,judging from remarks made, that
because they are too ignorant to play cards
and to awkward to dance, they have a good
title to a better land on that score, while
those who practice the amusements referred
to are doomed. Isa man honest simply be-
cause he has never had an opportunity to
steal, or because he never stole when he had
opportunities? We would say the latter.
ence those who do not dance or play cards,
simply because they can’t are not a whit bet-
ter off than those who can and do. If there
is any wickedness in these sports to those
who do not practice them because of ignor-
ance, no credit is due. Evil must be hated
because it is evil.”
“On a parallel with this thought was the
exnression that if the children of Israel lid
not had the gold ear-rings, otc., tite golden
calf would not be in history? Not so. The
earcrings, etc., are as innocent as the'golden
calf itself. No blame can be put on either.
The misdeed might as well be attributed to
the skill possessed by the gold-smith which
enabled him to form the image, or if you
: .
‘artistically arranged. It was a beautiful
please, the gold itself. To study the script-
ures thus, the Creator would logically be re- !
sponsible for the idol. y
Happily the version is wrong. The Crea- |
tor, the gold, the skill of the smith, the calf |
or the egr-rings, etc., had nothing to do with
the case. The evil lay in the hearts of
the children of Israel, and had there
not been a pennyweight of gold in the Israel-
itish camp, an image—an idol—would have !
been cast and idolatry practiced God's |
chosen people. ; |

Children’s day services in the Presbyterian
church here, on Sunday afternoon last, were
largely attended. The program was quite
lengthy and consisted of singing, recitations,
etc., and was interesting throughhut. All
the. children did remarkably well, recit-
ing their pieces in an admirable manner.
Considerable taste and skill were displayed
in decorating the platform. Roses, pansies,
pinks and ferns were in profusion and very

broken on Monday last, and its erection will
be commenced immediately. Mr. Long ex-
pects to occupy it August 1st.
. Considerable improvements have been
made in our village this spring. Several
barns have been greatly enlarged and new
stables erected. Quite a number of new fen-
ces have faken the place ofthe old rickety
ones which formerly adorned (7) the front
garden of some of our dwellings; Our main
street has a new and substantial plank

walk of probably 300 feet, which will be con-
tinued, the M. E. parsonage sports an impos-
ing portico, and several residences have been
handsomely painted. CC. P. Long is
erecting # neat and pretty fence in front
of his beautiful residence on the new thor-
oughfare to the R. R. station. The dwelling
is brick, and built on the English style
of architecture and is very attractive, Wm.
Pealer, I regret to add, the retiring post-
master of our village, is also erecting a very
commodious dwelling on his farm located a
shart distance below our town, besides seve
eral substantial out-buildings—about 80 acres
endosed with wire-fencing. When com-
| pleted the property will present a charming
and inviting appearance. We are becoming

A good thing it will be. surely, to make a

there is a high bank and over which a horse

years, since Noah flooded the ark on
dam, a fence has never been built.
yesterday, the kind heart of Mrs. Henry
Brungart was made sad and glad on the an-
niversary of her fiftieth birthday of her hap-
py life. Mr. Brungartin his usual but not ur-
geat way suggested to Mrs. B. that they do a
little visiting and call on his brother Newton
with whom he had some business. After a lit-
tle hesitation she went along for a drive.
Wtlen they returned she met her daughter,
Mrs. E. E. Woods, and her sweet little grand-
daughter, Margaret, and grandson, at her
door. This made Mrs. Brungart burst into
teas. But in a moment. she discovered all
her many friends who had the table literally
hesped with all the delicacies of the market
icecream, cakes, strawberries, ete. ete. All
this made her take a good, hearty laugh, as
she now had entered into a little paradise.
So about thirty of her friends, while she was
away, not even having as much as asked the
old cat for admission, took possession of the
hcuse and kitchen more earnestly than
women usually do. And when Mrs. Brun-
gart saw her birthday presents, a dining
room set, gold glasses, a dozen engraved
tumblers, the finest calicos, linens, ete., she
rejoiced and many were the thanks she re-
turned to all for their many kindnesses.
Among those present are the following that
we are able to recall. Mrs. Sholl, Mrs.
Nora Corman, Mrs. Wm. Bair, Mrs. L. C.
Gramley, Mrs. Harry Corman,: Mrs.
Calvin Crouse, Mrs George Haines, Mrs.

Mrs. Jasper Brungart, Miss Mame Corman,

ler and Mrs. Wilson Leitzell. Thus all had
an excellent dinner and a happy time long
to be remembered.
