is about fifty days before Easter
Next Wednesday is Ash Wednesday the first day ot Lent, the
Church's penitential season. "Dies
Cinerum," or the day of ashes, was
originally so called from the custom
in the early church of penitents
throwing ashes over themselves in
token of sorrow for sin. This practice died out in the XVI. Century.
The word "Lent" is derived from
an old Anglo-Saxon word "Lenc-
ten," meaning Spring.
There will be divine service in
All Saints on Ash Wednesday
morning at 11 o'clock.
Throughout the Lenten season
there will be a special service every
Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock
and on Friday evening at 7:30
o'clock. The Vicar will preach, or
give instruction ou some Church
subject on the Friday evenings.
Adults desirous of being confirmed kindly send in their names to
the Vicar. The Bishop is now on
his way from England and it will
not be so very long ere candidates
will be presented lo him for the
sacred rite,

A. printed pamphlet is being circulated by one John Pinkerton, a
tree miner and an old timer, having
arrived overland in '62, showing,
by a diagram at the back, how he
ia the victim of an injustice.    He,
apparently staked a mining claim
ou some vacant laud between two
teases,   after  which,   a   company
owning an adjoining lease, seeing
the value of this little strip, draws
up and registers a new plan which
crowds this individual, John Pinkerton off the face of the earth, so
to speak, and in this LAW is on
the side of the powerful company
while JUSTICE is set aside. Those
il authority  should see into this
matter and thoroughly investigate
and if au injustice is proven, punish the doers, be they a corporation,
a judge or lawyers and teach them
te be honest in tbeir dealings.
Time was wheu the Union Jack
tolerated nothing but justice in the
British courts. Now, according to
daily occurrences, law holds sway
while justice ij locked up.
A telegram was received in Col
orado a few days since, directing
the proper authorities to arrest a
young man who, it was alleged,
had run away with his aunt. "I
have an order for your arrest," remarked the officer, addressing the
supposed criminal.
"For what?"
"You have been running away
with your aunt."
"My aunt! Why she's my wife!"
"But wasn't she your auut before she became your wife? You
see, we don't tolerate those kind
of goings-on in Colorado "
"I supoose you never were in
Utah?" remarked the young man,
after he had completed his survey
of the detective.
"Well, as you don't understand
the relations ot aunt' and nephew in
tbat territory, I suppose I ought to
explain to you.and then.perhaps you
may see your duty plainer. "My
father married my mother."
"I suppose so."
"Then he married her sister,"
continued the stranger without
heeding the interruption. "Then
he married the sister of his brother
in-law. Then the daughter of his
uucle, who was a cousin to his first
twowives, theu he married her sister,
who was the widow of oue of his
first wives' husbands; then he mar
ried her daughter; and a son of
this wife married my sister, who
was also a widow of one ofthe other
wives' sous. 1 suppose you are
following me,1' interjected the narrator."
"Marry your aunt or yourgiand-
tuolher either or both of them."
"And you won't arrest me?"
"No,  vou might be your own
father!"���Sporting Times.
