BRIBERY IN RUSSIA.
An Incident of the Reign of the “Czar-
An old and long retired Russian gen

ed the following story in Illustration
of the official bribery that prevails in
Russia, the incident being one within
his own personal knowledge:
During tlie reign of Alexander 11.,
the "czar-liberator,” the widow of a
distinguished general endeavored to
obtain an appointment in a certain
ministry for her only son, a young
man of superior education and Intelli
gence. The minister promised the
widow to reserve the first occurring
vacancy in his department. She wait
ed in vain for the fulfillment of the
promise and twice repeated her appeal
by letter. She learned, too, that In the
meantime several vacancies had been
filled by other candidates.
The widow then waited upon the em
peror and told tils majesty of the min
ister’s broken promises and her own
keen disappointment, and after a few
moments’ consideration the czar asked
her If she had Inclosed a gift of money
to the minister with tier written ap

I should not dare put such an a (Trout

"Do not trouble yourself about the
affront, inadame,” replied the cz-ir.
"but renew your proshenie lo the min
ister and inclose £1,000 to him."
“But I have no such sum of money,
your majesty," saiil the widow dole
"Oh, as to that, 1 will lord you the
money, and ihe minister will no doubt
repay me, and you will inform me,
please, of the result of your renewed
appli.-ntion with the inolosure.”
The widow sent her son to the min
ister with the £1.000 lent by the ••r.ar
inclosed with a pdlilcly written note,
the result being that the young man

Idella Mae Smith, eldest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Smith, was born
Nov. 18, 1901, and departed this life
Sept. 18, 1909. l.ltle Idella leaves a
kind and loving father, a dear, heart
broken mother and two little brothers,
besides a host of sorrowing friends
and relatives. But we weep not ns
those who have no hope, for we know
that our loss is heaven’s eternal gain.
We know she has gone to meet her lit
tle sister, Sellnh Louise, who preceded
her to the grave only a few weeks.
All was done that loving hands could
do, but the One who said, "Suffer lit
tle children to come unto me and for
bid them not, for of such is the king
dom of heaven,” had need of our dear
little Idella and Louise.
Idella hove her sickness patiently,
although she suffered greatly from a
malignant case of typhoid fever ; but
it is a sweet consolation to know that
she is now free from suffering. She
has gone where suffering is unknown,
to bask in the sunlight of God’s love,
and is waiting for her loved ones to
gather home on« by one. Weep not,
fond parents, hut think of your darling
as waiting for you on that shining
shore, where God wipes all tears away.
There is the tree of life, and the dear
Lamb, who was slain for our sins,
stands ready to gather home His jewels.
May Jesus comfort the hearts of the
dear ones and help them to say, ‘‘Thy
will be done, not mine.”

On the morning of June 29. 1909, the
soul of our sister, Zephia Barrett Gor
don, winged its flight, heavenward,
while all earth was awakening to life,
and springtime was in its glory but
she answered the summons bravely,
for she had made her peace with the
Lord. She was horn July 13, 1889, was
married to W. G. Gordon May 5, 1907,
and died June 29, 1909 aged 20 years.
She united with Prospect church,

parents belong. It was not the privi
lege of her bereaved father and mother
to be with her in her last illness, hut
she murmured not, and all that loving
friends and relatives could do was done
for her, but to no avail. She called
each member of tho family to her and
hade them a last goodbye, telling thsm
she was ready to go. She leaves, be
sides her husband and little daughter,
a sorrowing father and mother, four
sisters and one brother, besides a host
of other relatives to mourn ner death.
While we know that we cannot have
her back with us, yet we would have
her death as a benediction to us all,
guiding us onward and upward to
things brighter and better, so that
when the summons comes we can he
ready and again be united, never more
to be parted.
