A Presbytery in China.
Tie missionaries In China of the
Southern Presbyterian church, with of
ilcois of the native churches, have pre
pared an overture to the general as
fomoly asking for the formation of a
Presbytery, to hold Its llrst meeting In
They want a Presbytery Independent
lit tlio homo church, to be composed of
missionaries and native officers: and
W0Lld have the foreign evangelist re
tain his connection with his home Pres
bytery and subject to its discipline,
;while he is also a member of the Pres
bytery in China, but not subject to Its
discipline further than that it shall
li.ivj power to exclude him.
Chinese Subscriptions to an Episco
Tjward a subscription of $20,000
naked for by St. John's Episcopal col
lege, Shanghai, fiom the Chinese, $.",600
Was received In a very short time.
lAmong the contributors were the gov
crmr'of the province or Kiang-Su
($U0O), the viceroys of Wuchang and
Naukln ($;!00 each), the taotal of Shang
hai ($200), and the father of a student,
who gave $1,000. One half of a sum of
$3,300 required for the enlargement of
the Boone school, Wuchang, has been
subscribed by the fathers ol students
and other friends.
The Churchman icgards as one of the
most hopeful features of the present
tdtuatlon in China the eagerness of
people for western education under
Christian auspices, mid the readiness
of so many of them to pay for the edu
cation of their hons, and, furllier, to
give lownicl the extension of the educa
tional plant. When Boone school began
its work free tuition and board had to
lie given the students, and even clothes,
to induce parents to let them attend.
Now all the students, except those from
the families of the native clergy and
fiom some uf the poorer Christians, pay
$85 a year.

LESSON FOR JUNE 29
SECOND QUARTERLY REVIEW.
nY BUV. J. H. CIM1KRT, D. D.
Secretary o( American Society ol ftcllgtoui
THE PERIOD. Tho lessons of tho
quarter cover In part a peilod of about
eighteen years, from tlio conversion of
Saul ot' Tarsus, tho great persecutor, A.
D. 34, to his entrance into Europe, A. D.
32, after healing tho Macedonian cry.
Dining that lime the church made rapid
progress In the number of Us converts,
In tho extent of territory covered, and in
tho great truths which wero advanced
and lecelved. It was tho tirst half of
what Is known us tho apostolic peilod,
and it had gicat iulliience upon all tho
hiibsequent jcurs of Christianity. Tlio
leading character at the beginning was
Peter, and at tho end Saul or Paul. Jew
ish converts had tho chief pluccs of pow
er at tho Urst and Gc-utiles wero begin
ning to bo recognized toward tlio cio-ie.
Nothing was done In this tlmo on the
Now Testament canon, unless, ns somo
think, ,1110 Gospel of Mathow was writ
ten hi Hebrew. It was a. tlmo of In
tense nctlvlty, iinsiii passed perhaps in
any other lime, a mlslsouury spirit hav
ing taken possession of ministers and
laymen alike. Hero wero the beginnings

portance, little understood at the time,

ion; that somo men aro called for a speci
llc mission; that virtuous heathbn are re

man doing his duty may expect opposi
tion; that our labor nnd sympathies are

THE COMMENTS. Iti should ever bo
borne lu mind that tho historical parts of
sacred Scrlptuie, both of tho Old Testu
ment and tho New Testament, are re
cords of those methods by which peo
ple are educated in religious things. That
Is not tho solo purpose, but it is one of
lho most important purposes of the IiIh
torv. Man obtains oninlons and follows
practices that seem to bo right at the!
time, but which must lie changed, In or
der to his highest spiritual good, This
chango Is effected through a seiies of i
events hi which tho Dlvlno hand Is ap-l
parent, leading on oflen In tho darkness
to u result when reached which is highly
approved. Those who are at tho times
actors are frequently In doubt and con
fl'ct, but by experience they come out Into
a place ot rest. Those who come after, i
reading tho record, learn not only tlio
lesson, hut the modo of the Divine
teacher, and they may rightly expect oc
currences of similar Import Ir. their own
lives. Religion is not stationary It Is
not somo fixed and unalterable thing that
may bo described, conforming to a pre
scribed pattern. It is a growth, a de
velopment for tho Individual, for society,
for tho world: a steady forward move

WHY WOMEN LIKE EICTION.
It Supplies Them with the Romance
Lacking in Life.
'I'rom Harper's Weekly.
Do women II lid In fiction the roman
tic clement they crave, and perhaps
do not Und In sitlllclcnt quantity In
life? How otherwise arc wo to ac
count for their devotion lo novels,
without which the story-writer would
fare but 111 upon the slim diet of an
unfilled purse, and the publisher share
tho disaster? If Mr. .Carnegie should
bo able to keep out of libraries, as he
suggested, all fiction under three years
old, It might safely be said that the
women would bo against him which
ineans that the thing could not be
done. Women like new fiction: they
want the book that Is "Just out." If
It Is it historical novel, they, feel that
they are gathering Information, Heaven
bless them! If It Is n romunce, pure
and simple, they forget over Its pages
the domestic trials of the morning or
the afternoon. It docs them no more
harm than haa been done for countless
generations. For women are nourished
upon fiction from the days of their
birth. Our girls are reared In nn at
mosphere rarefied and cleared from all
Impurities. The world Is shown them
through a rose-tinctured glass. "Hero,
dearest, Is a city, n wonderful city of
happy homes, of beautiful art, of heav
enly aspiration. And these these are
men, noble, high-minded beings who
will always guide and tench and pro
tect you. These other are women, love
lier than everything else." And so on.
Fiction without discrimination Is fed
to the girl who .looks with heaven
given trust Into the eyes ot her well
meaning teachers. And when she be
comes a woman, tho habit has sent Us
roots Into her soul, and be she happy
or pensive, she rends fiction. With
men It Is different. They do not ex

Sailor Nicks Slides 1,000 Feet Down

From tho Los Angeles Times.
Wrapping his legs around tlio long

Chutes, when the big gasbag was high
In tho air, Simeon Nicks, a Jack tar,
last evening slid to the ground ns grace
fully and as unconcerned nsathuugh he
were descending to the deck of a vessel
after straightening out a tangle aloft.
It was the longest slide on record In
Eos Angeles, and It Is thought a similar
feat never before has been performed.
Nicks W "out for the stuff," he says,
and when he found he could gain some
notoriety that would prove profitable
he volunteered to drop from the clouds
on a string.
When he went up In the balloon at (1
o'clock last evening he was dressed In
an ordinary stilt of clothes and carried
In his hands h ten-Inch section of gar
den hosq, silt up the .side, that fitted
snugly over the 114-Inch Italian hemp
rope that keeps the balloon from stray
ing Into the empyrean. Accompanying
him were Aeronaut Hudson and the
little son of Professor Baldwin. At a
height of about 200 feet Nicks clambered
out of the basket, und with a sailor's
twist of his legs around xlhe pliable
hemp ho began to slldo downward.

that she knows Just how to make lem
onade, there is quite npt to be loo
much guesswork to make the lesult
nlways certain and always satisfac
tory. Two lemons will usually make
three glasses of lemonade; Here Is a.
tested recipe that can be relied on:
Select- perfectly sound, thin-skinned
lemons lfyou are allowed any choice
In the matter. Chip off tlio thin oilier
yellow skin of six lemons and steep
for ten minutes in a syrup made by
dissolving two pounds of sugar la ono
quart ot water. Meantime squeeze
the Julco from the lemons, strain nnd
add to a quart of cold water. When
the syrup and peel have simmered thu
ten minutes, pour In tho Juice and
cold water and beat thoroughly to
gether. Leave the chips of peel float
ing In the mixture. Put tlio lemonade
on tho Ice to become thoroughly
chilled. Servo in thin glasses with a
tublcspoonful of crushed Ice In each
glass. If tho lcmoiuido Is especially
for the delectation of rnlldren It may
he metamorphosed Into circus lemon
ade by the addition of a llttlo uf the
pink coloring puwder that comes hi
tho packages of gelutlno or a llttlo
currant or raspberry Juice.
A fruit temperance cup that "cheers
but not Inebriates" Is made after this
formula: Cut the yellow rind from
four lemons, taking corn lo get none
of tho bitter white. Put the ilnds hi
n largo earthen bowl and squeeze the
Julco from a dozen lemons over them.
Add two pounds of granulated sugar,
cover and let It stand hi a cool plaie
over night. Into another bowl put si
quart of mixed small fruits, such as
strawberries, raspbernes and cherries,
and ono pineapple, peeled and shred
ded. Cover with sugar and stand
aside over night, lu tho morning,
ciush the fi tilts thoioughly und strain
tho liquid Into the lemon syrup. Add
ono pint treshly made cold tea and
put the mixture on len or In a cold
placo for several hours. When leady
to servo add two quarts of Iced water,
or charged water If preferred, and
pour Into the punch bowl,

slowly ut first, nnd gradually Increasing
