Sunday last, being nearest the 31st
of October, was celebrated as Reforma
tion Sunday in many Protestant
churches, particularly the Evangelical
Lutheran, as the 301st anniversary of
the beginning of the great Reformation
of the Christian church in the sixteenth
century. On October 31st, 1617, Luther,
the monk of Wittenberg, nailed up his
celebrated ninety-five theses as a pro
test against the abuses in the church of
his time, and thus began that great
movement which has more profoundly
moved the world than any other since
the establishment of Christianity. Spe
cial services were held morning and eve
ning in St. John's Ev. Lutheran
church here, the pastor, Rev. W. L.
IIopp, delivering interesting and ap
propriate addresses to large congrega
tions on both occasions.

of Seattle, Washington, for late copies

interested. The Tribune says that Henry

nounced the plant "The easiest running
piece of big machinery and the best all
round irrigating outfit" he ever saw.
Plenty of game is predicted for the
next two years as a result of the forest
fires which have raged in more than a
dozen of the mid-state counties, by Dr.
J. C. Kalbfus, Secretary to the State
Game Commission, who has visited the
the burned areas. He says that the
damage done to the forests is great, but
that small game did not suffer much as
the animals and birds were sufficiently
developed to get out of the way. The
fire was so great that it destroyed the
large trees, and the areas burned over
will be covered with young grass and
new shoots next year, so that there will
be fine grazing grounds for the animals
the coming summer.
