were agreeably surprised to hear her
inc with the same sweetness ot voice
and grace of manner that has for years
harmed the null lie and caused a gol
den stream to How Into the coffers of
the fair Lillian.
Ijist night she was as versatile anil
bewitching as ever, but the audience
was cold and the applause that greeted
her best efforts did not have the right
ring to it.
t may have been the fault or tne
opera or the unappreclatlve spirit of the
audU-nce, or a combination or uotn. nut
at all events Lillian's reception was not
as enthusiastic as that given her upon
her former appearance at the Academy
of Music several months ago.

But after all It's Russell, not the
opera, that the public pays Its dollars
to see, and they saw more or tier last
night than In any opera In which she
has recently appeared. The first act Is
ather tedious, but in the second, from
the moment that the frou-frou of Lil
lian's numerous skirts is heard as she
nines whirling down the stage through
i lane of Hashing blades, there Is a
ommenilublo spirit of go and dash to
the opera that eventually peters out In
weak ensemble with the Princess
Alma, of Bulgaria, (Russell), in the
enter of the stage us the betrothed
wile of the sculptor Michael, who was
made u duke by her father for the
genius he dipluyed in his statue of the
goddess of truth.
The humor of the opera Is developed
from the fact that for a part of a day
the goddess of truth decrees that all
should tell the truth without equivoca
tion. A sorry lot is humanity, after all,
for bald, unvarnished truth causes nil
kinds of trouble lu the palace of the
King of Bulgaria, whom the libretto
maker has afflicted with an uncontrol-
able desire to indulge in punning.

COMMITTEES OF CLASSIS
Appointments Made by the President.
Rev. Mr. Kerch ner.
MIXITES OP SYNOD DISCUSSED
Address by Rev. Mr. Vnndt, Superintend
ent of h Hetliany Orphans' Home.
Addresses on Foreign Missions
t the Evening Session.
Parochial reports of the work of the
various churches last year were heard
at yesterduy's session of Wyoming
Classis in Calvary Reformed church.
The pastor of each church read his
ii port, giving the membership, number
confirmed, baptized, expelled. If any,
and the number of members of the Sun
day school and Christian Kndcavor
union. After the pastor's report was
read the president would call upon the
cider of the same church to stand up
and corroborate the report.
Perhaps, there was not a better re
IHirt of growth und extension of church
work nresented than that which Rev.
Mr. Stubblebine read us setting forth
the history of Calvary church for the
year past. The elders were questioned
closely on whether or not their congre
gations paid the pastor's alary prompt
ly. Wherever there appeared to be any
laxity on this subject the elders were
told In pluln language that the voice
ot the general synod is clear on the de
linquency question and will not tolerate
It. Rev. Mr. Kerchner appointed the
following committee for the 34001-:

ORPHAN'S HOME ItKPORT.
Rev. T. M. Yundt, superintendent of
the orphan's home at Bethany, sub
mitted his report. He has been In
charge several years and felt highly
pleased to be able to state that the
property of the home Is valued at $5,000
today, and it is doing the noble work
of caring for Hz friendless children.
The home at present will not take any
children under six years of age, but an
addition is in process of construction in
which Infants and those from that age
up to six years will be cared for.
The committee on minutes of synod
took up the minutes and read them to
the classls. The Wyoming clussls was
assessed certuln amounts of money by
the synod and a debate was ordered
on the adoption, revision, or rejection
of the recclmmendatlons of synod. The
minutes of synod recommended that the
Wyoming Classls contribute $1,040 for
home missions. After the delegates
were heard a vote was taken on the
motion to reduce this amount to $600,
ami It was carried.
bor foreign mislsons the classls was
asked to pay J1I15. This amount was
cut down to $500. The assessment of
$64 for Hungarian missions was al
lowed, and the sum of $18 for harbor
missionary work In New York city. An
Item of $6 for teaching elocution at the
semlnury, and another Item of $36 for
seminary aid were adopted, hut the
amounts are not to be paid from the
treasury of the classls, and are to be
borne by those churches that feel In
clined to stand the expense.
The item of $305 for church building,
recommended in the minutes of the
synod was rejected; for the reason that
tho classls is now paying more than
that amount for the same object with
in Its own bounds. The Item of $1S
for Cnlvln college, Cleveland, was
adopted. The other Items of the min
utes of the synod will be taken up this
THE EVENING SESSION.
Rev. C. H. Brand't was the first speak
er at the evening session at which the
subject of Homo mission work wss dis
cussed. The first reason, he said, that
presents Itself, calling for the necessity
of home mission work Is the religious
destitution existing in this country; and
he quoted statistics from the census
of the I nitod States to show that white
we call ourselves, a Christian country,
the fact confronts us that only two
fifths of the population of the country
are church going iieople. In the city of
New York there Is only one church, tak
ing all the religious sects, for every 3,000
people. The history of the large cities
Is the history of the country, and it,
therefore, Is our duty to see that they
are what they ought to be. As In the
cities lie the possibilities of building up
tho country, and as they are the places
where vice and wickedness are fostered,
it is Incumbent upon us to spread the
gospel among them and overthrow the
lnlluences of evil.
The western states are now In a
plastic degree of developement. The
best criterion of a place Is the percent
age of criminals that It supports. In
the eastern states there are 1,200 In the
Jails out of every million; in the west
there are over 2,000 criminals out of
every million. The spread of the gos
pel In the United States is the only
safeguard of the government, and on it
depends the Christian character of the
rest of the world. The speaker in con
clusion spoke of the vast resources and
possibilities of the nation. A collection
wus tuken up after Rev. Mr. Brandt
finished his address.
Rev. C. W. E. Siegel followed with a
Htlrring apneal for home mission work.
He snoke of the necessities throughout
the land crying forth for spiritual as
sistance and nourishment.
This evening the subject of Fo-lgn
missions will be discussed by Rev. .1.
B. Kerchner and Rev. A. Houtz. Rev.
Mr. Stubblebine has decorated the walls
of the church with the red and white
Mags of the Christian Endeavur union.
