'Well, lam not hero to defend Jndpe Slagle; I merely want consideration for my client." ."Yea, I fcnow.lbnt I must discountenance this thlnr of traffic In license." "The eiamlnatlontefore Judge Slagle -when the transfer was made was very straight, as much so probably as that of this court." 'W eU, I'll consider the case." A TRIFLE MIXED. Judce White, in the case of Theresa Kaiser, nldjLhat be had received a letter from a child, a little boy, "pleading him for GsA's sake not to give a Vicente to this woman, as his falherjs a drunkard and Is In the habit oi spending his money and getting drunk In her saloon. He did not give the name of the child whose pathetic eplstleliad been more powerful in its effect than letters from some or.FltuburjT's most prominent men. Mrs. Kaiser tould not answer such a letter. Mr. Kaiser was called, and he. In his examination, did not know what day of the week it was. Before the commencement of the afternoon session Judjre White said that he had made a mistake in regard to the letter, and that the complaint was made against Bernard Kerns, and not Mrs. Balser. The plain, ordinary American cltlten must lung over a low railing in the rear or the room. The. narrow space allotted to him Is always crowded, lie constitutes himself into a Judge and Jury, and tries the case of eTery man who applies. Where he comes from Is mysterious: Vhat he does for a llrlng is even more enshrouded In darkness; for, day after day, you can see the same set of faces, on which there Is always a set, pained erpression. The face Is red, and the eyes are bulging. THE ABBREVIATED FELLOW. There is occasionally, also, a little, sawed-off young fellow, with a round fat face and closely-cropped hair. He is continually smiling. He beams serenely at His Honor, the attorneys, the applicant and occasionally upon the W. C. T. U. ladles lu the Jury box. One or the latter, with all dpe respect to the remainder. Is in the habit of beaming in return either at him or at one of the other spectators. A miniature court was held in a corner of the lobby yesterday atthe noon hour. A young fellow perched hlmelf on the stone railing, and, with an assumed air of severity, questioned a friend, who assumed the part or the applicant: Young man," thundered the Judge, "what are your reasons for starting a saloonr" Very good: have you any further reasons?" "Iwant tomakeaming." blrrahl What excuse have you for that?" 4oneatalU vour Honor." What did you do last year!" "Kept a cigar store." Old you uot sell milk or elder in bottles?" "o. sir." sirrah!" 'I cot some for mv own use." "t ho drank this beer!" "I said cider." "Sirrah, you said beer!" "1 drank It." "Oo yon give any to your friends?" "I have none: I am an orphan." "Don't the) come to sec you on SundaT?" "io, sir; 1 walk all day." "Are you married?" o, sir; but I would like " AIT AWFUL CHARGE. "Never mind what you would like. I heard tome bad reports about you. It is stated that you great-grandfather kept a grocery store and sanded his sugar. What do you say to that?" "Why. Judge " "That's all; call another." The first name called at the afternoon session was Mary A. bplane, who had a hard row to hoe. His Honor complained of the noise made In the court and requested the tipstaves to keep better order. "This is not a barroom," he remarked. Her husband Is now in the workhouse for renting a honse on Grant street for Immoral purposes. The property is In his name He will net be out of Jail unto. April 6. The Court said It would think about the case. Mr. Christy objected, because the saloon was near a railroad. Attorney Watterson said that this objection was an absurd one. Earlier In the day the same objection was made, as it was claimed men would become intoxicated and get killed an th railroad. A. C W agoner. of No. I Carson street, does not furnish anv meals, never did, and yet his receipts were as high as 50 a day. Judge white had received some private Information regarding a man who had worked about the saloon. He gave the man a severe lecture. His Honor remarked that thev bad made a erand mistake last Tear crantlnr such men licenses, and that he proposed to corrects luc uiuiftftca tula jcu A SAD, SAD VOICE. August Strickenburger, Washington avenue, was anpther man with a mournful voice. Mr. Christy endeavored to prove that Mr. S wai engaging In some illicit dealing in beer, and in a measure succeeded. He did not have a license. Jamts F. Holtls says he has no boarders, but has eidit children. His wife and children "do not drink, because she and the children are temperance." He gets a box of beer every week, and drinks It all. He said he would not tell a lie, as It woujdnotpay. Mr. Christy The rest of your family are temperance? "Yes, sir.-" "How xnanv drinks did you have to-day?" "1 don't thlnfc It is any of yonr business." "That's the bestanswer 1 could get. What have you sold to bovs who come from outer's rink?" "Tobacco, cigars; soft drinks, etc" "Especially the and-so-forth'?" "Yes, sir, quite an amount of etc." Hd111s has been returned for illegal liquor sell-Henry Meyer never had a fight in his life. He explained he was not a fighting man. Another man only got Meyer's thumb in his mouth, and bit it off. If he was a fighting man he would not have allowed the man to bite his thumb off. Judge White said during the examination or a Mrs. wilbert: "Every person who has a license Is responsible for what his barkeeper does." Adam Spohm did not respond to his name. SAD AND ALONE. John Conway is the only man In theThlrty-thlrd ward who wants a saloon. The ward may continue to be a dry one. Peter Carlin. 758 and 760 Carson street, says he does a nice business: receipts ) to $50 a day, and ou Saturday (100. He said be quit the bottle trade two weeks ago. "Are you annoyed by people going to church?" asked Judge White. ".No. lr." 'You had five or sir disturbances In your place last year," said Mr. Christy o.lr. I never had that many; never had over three or four servants." answered Carlin. "Oh. 1 mean fight!" said Mr. Christy, explaining the word "disturbance," and he looked like the opposite. Mr. Carlin had a searching examination, and will be lncky it he pulls through. Adam Wagner. 649 Carson street, died on March SO. His widow answered to his name. Mr. Oiri6ty commenced to question her. His Honor remarked: "We cannot visit the sins of her hus band on her head; he has died so recently." Mrs. agner will likely get her license. Louis Welm, Main street, did not have a license lastyear. "Judge. Your Honor," he remarked, I have another reason. 1 ou said last year that if lbehaed myseiri would get a license." When he was rerused the Carlin saloon was within a stone'sthrow of him. John Hass is the only applicant from the Thirty-fifth want. They had no license last year, and will not have one this Tear, for Mr. Hass was a member or the famous ashington Irving Literary Society. "He ought to be proud of that, " said Attorney Sobb. as a parting shot. NO MORE MISTAKES. Morris Gibansky, 195 Main street, reported receipts or from fM fo 7S a day. Jndge White said on his case: "1 won't grant a license to a retail liquor store. We made mistakes last year. I did not knowingly give my consent to retail liquor stores." The applicant said be did not keep a restaurant, but only a retail liquor store, William Gundelfinger. 113 Steuben street, kept a grocery store and sold out March 1. He Is fire doors from a church. Judge White said bis personal appearance was in his favor; the applicant was much obliged, and he will likely get a license. Samuel Harper and James Calhoun were called. The former testified he saw intoxicated men come out of Hay's saloon and has seen minors go into his saloon. The utter savs he has seen disorderly conduct about-the place, and saw tbem put men out or the place, and has the reputation of being a disorderly place, keeping the neighbors awake. Charles Sellers, 1,1 Main street, has a good boarding house and told a good story. His receipts from liquor on week days were 135, and on haturdays f90. A pool room adjoins his saloon. This will likely deprive him or his license, as Judge hite said he has serious objections to such an arrangement. Kd Montgomery testified that the man who owns the poolroom brought beer in irom we saloon to tne room. Charles Turnblacer, 114 Wabash avenue, has a saloon at present. He'made a good showing, with seme exceptions. .Mr. Compton was sworn and testified that he had seen drunken men come out or Turnblacer's saloon, and they had assaulted him. He testified that the man sold to minors, selling drink to a colored boy named Hubby Carter, 17 years of age. He also seen Intemperate men coming out of nil saloon Intoxicated. THE PARTING SHOT. Attorney Bays took charge of the witness and shook bis testimony badly. The father of the boy Carter went to the saloon and said the boy was of age. This closed the examination ot all the applications from I'ittsburg. Allegheny will "be taken up thlr morning, and the first four wards will be examined: One passing note before dismissing yesterday's report: Man, with an air of superiority, will ra'l and laugh at woman for her fondness for wearing lewelry; hut IT an Inventory were taken, it fi dollars to doughnuts" that It would be found men own and wear more Jewelry than w omen. They have worse taste, too. and wearjcwelry ihat has no semblanceof beauty. This Is most noticeable in the matter or rings. ETery applicant holds up his hand to be sworn, and thus dlsplavs some or the most hideous designs in lings. Enormous seal and cameo lings preponderate. The latter consist ot some big white heads or some old Roman warriors, whose chief weapon or defense must have been his own ugly face with a black background. There are, too, large seal rings, heavy gold ones, and occasionally a diamond, which, although it may be paste, glistens and sparkles with an air of wealth that Is bard to overlook or overcome. The watch chalps are heavy gold. In which quantity and not quality U most noticeable, "watch charms are common, and usually consist ot the badge of some secret society. h C .-,.-,'.- . . ...

Bestattrant keepers held their regular weekly failure to meet yesterday. Pupils of the Thad Stevens school gave a pleasant entertainment yesterday. Workmen on the Fourteenth ward station honse hare encountered a bed of quicksand. THE horiion ot future success is often obscured by the passing cloud of present failure. A Fifth avenue cable car actually stopped for a man yesterday. It had almost run over him. Canada prays for a third party. The law only recognizes two; the thief and the accessory. Ajaz Jones has put the official seal of Pittsburg on more than 51,000,000 worth of city bonds this week. Charles Sutten pleaded guilty to stealing coal .from P. fc W. B.

Science explains this on the intermarriage basis. Almost moving time, yet no one has mentioned the stove that does not more or the elbow joint that does not join. William Blaeslee, son of a former well known oil man of St. Petersburg, is In the city. His home is now in Albany. No wonder that Chicago man failed to establish a marriage agency. He should hare begun at the divorce end first. Those new electric lights look as if they were trying to put themselves oat with an old-fashioned candle extinguisher. The inquest on the remains of Joseph Wolfe, theBcllevne suicide, resulted in a verdict of snlcide while in a fit of insanity. "Gentleman" Ward McCalllstei, of New York, is greatly troubled about his tax arrears. The law says foreigners, are exempt. The Board of Awards will open to-day a .bushel basket full of bids from firms anxious to supply the cityrith yearly necessities. Tis said Mrs. Cleveland's under lip trembles when people refer to her disappointment. Never mind. She keeps a stiff upper lip. There are fewer beggars lu this city than any other of its size. This either speaks well for her good times or for her Poor Board. Messrs. Justice and Fitch, charged with embezzlement as the agents of the Keystone Watch Company, are in jail In default of $2,000 bail. With everybody going somewhere as foreign Ministers, it might be proper to inquire who Is going to stay at home and hold Miss Columbia's hand. Burglars attempted to enter the dry goods store of M.

Like a hound on the last scent, England now and then gives a pitiful yelp over those White-chapel affairs, but Pittsburg has an affair as mysterious, and never whines the Goldberg murder. An Indiana man put some dynam lte into the kitchen oven, mistaking it for yeast. The last seen of him he was on his way yeast, probably to see Harrison about the explosive inspectorship office. When Oscar Wilde was asked to arrange a lot of Japanese screens for a 1 ady, he said: "Oh, don't arrange them, let them occur." He probably thought even Wilde could not misplace a Japanese screen. Willie Snowden and Charles Griffiths, two boys who escaped from the St, Paul's Orphan Asylum, last Friday, were arrested by Officer Thompson on Forbes street, yesterday, and taken back to the asylum. Albert Dieteick, a newspaper carrier and an Allegheny City lampwasher, fell from a ladder while engaged In the latter occupation on Franklin street yesterday afternoon, having become sick and faint. He was not badly hurt Some of these fine days Pittsburg will waken up to find herself famous, and a metropolis. A Western paper has plaintively asked "where is Pittsburg ?" And what a Western paper does not know, would make most any place famous. The weather may continue fair, or may turn in with showers to moisten new spring overcoats or aid the blooming flowers. The wind will turn northwesterly and change from warm to cool, but children should take umbrellas before they start for school. This is what Wiggins says, but everyone can see the man must make some sort of guess to earn his salarie. TUG CLOSING EXERCISES. Programme of the Allegheny U. P. Theological Seminary Commencement.

THE GOLD EXPORTED THEEE LAST YEAR A company of Pittsbnrgers to bore for oil in South Africa is one of the possibilities of the near future. For the past two days there has been a gentleman here talking the matter up and he has received great encouragement. L. Campbell Johnston, of Johannlsbnrg, State of Transvaal, South Africa, is the name of the gentleman, and he is now stopping at the Seventh Avenue Hotel. In an interview last night Mr. Johnston said: - "I came here for the purpose of looking over your oil fields to try and get some of yonr rich oil men to put some money in a company to be formed in the country where I came from. From what I know of oil, I think we have it there in vast quantities, and all that is needed is to get enough money to do the boring. . "I have been prospecting in Orange Free State, which is about 750 miles from Cape Town, and found unmistakable evidences of the existence of rich lubricating oil. I found it In springs and pools of water, and the indications are that there is plenty of it underneath the ground. The jeople there do not know anything about it, and are shy about putting money into such an enterprise. "While talking up the formation of the company, I have been looking around and getting a little practical knowledge of oil wells. When I go home 1 will be able to tell whother the oil Is really what it promises to be or not "Where the oil 'has been discovered in Orange Free State the land is very cheap. The country has a little republican form of government "Since I left Scotland many years ago to make my home in South Africa I have been engaged in gold mining, which is a very lucrative business in that country. Last year there were exported 1,000,000 sterling. This all came from the ports of Durban and Cape Town. "There is also any quantity ot coal similar to what you use in Pennsylvania to be found in the country. It is a soft bituminous article, and we also have something not unlike your anthracite. It is also a great wool growing country, and sngar and wines are among the productions. The climate there is delightful. A trip can be made from this city to Cape Town In about 32 days. "The Government State Mining Engineer there, whose name is Woodhouse, is an American and I think came from one of yonr Eastern cities. There are few other Americans in the country, however. "From here I go to Lower Calif ornla, on some business connected with gold mining.' THAT DETROIT POISONING. Reports ol Murder Arc Emphatically Denied by Friends.

Mrs. John Thuering, of 48 Spring Garden avenue, Allegheny, who was arrested, charged with plotting to murder her husband, bad a hearing before Mayor Pearson yesterday afternoon. The only witness was Charles Koch, who testified that Mrs. Thuering had engaged him to kill her hasband. He agreed to do the Job. he said, and te plans were laid; but he decided to notify the police, and the plans were not carried out The prisoner denied the charge, and, as there was no further proof, the Mayor discharged her. She left the office at once, Dut did not go home. The woman had a young babe with her, and it was reported last night she had done something rash. ' Koch reported the matter to Mayor's Clerk Hunneshogen, and told a very straight story. Mr. Hunneshogen at once notifledChlef of Police Klrschler, who ordered an investigation ana placed the case in charge of Detective Eichenlanb. The officer told Koch to agree to everything the woman wanted and to try and secure her consent to have an assistant Mr. Elchenlaub being willing to take the Job of murder in order to secure evidence against the woman. Mrs. Thuering declined to allow a third party in the plot and Koch made all the arrangements himself. In speaking of tho matter last night. Detective Elchenlaub said: "All the arrangements made by Koch with the woman were carried out; the back gate and door were open, and the woman had the dog and children downstairs where they could not Interfere with the plans. We had no proof of attempted murder, and City Solicitor Elphinstone said that the only charge that could be brought was one for surety of the peace, and that had to be done by the husband. This he refused to do, as be does not believe his wife wants him to be murdered. As soon as the woman was discharged she disappeared, and I believe she has gone for good." PROBABLI THE FINAL TERSION. The Report to the Consnlnr Agent in the DI Dlontercole Case. The dismal difficulties of the Count and Countess Si Montercole have been told in so many forms, from the original New Tork Beratd story to the Count's own story and the Countess' own story, that the public must be" pretty tired of it But now comes the story 'of the proprietor of the Hotel Bellevue, wlilch.be-ing officially given to the United States Consular 'Agent at Ancona, may presumably be taken as something final and official. It tells of the Initial fuss: Daring the night of the 25th and 26th of October, toward 1:30 in the morning, 1 was suddenly awakened hy the porter, who came to Inform me that a very violent scene was taking place In room No. 59, occupied by the Count and Count of Montercole. A. lew moments afterward I presented myself In the room. The couple were standing in night costume and In a state of great exeltement 'This is a mad woman, or she is drunk, ' ' yelled the Count pointing with his linger at his wife, while the latter Hang herself into my arms, Imploring my help agaln6t the brute, who had frightfully beaten her, adding that she would not consent to live another minute with the Count. She showed to me the traces of .violent blows received from her husband on the chin and arm. At that h moment the Count attempted to throw himself again on his victim, butl prevented: mm rrom doing so, and tried afterward by evervthlng that reason could dictate to a stranger In such circumstances, to bring back the peace to the Count's mind. He stayed rebellions In spite ot my efforts, and I was obliged to tame him by hinting to him of the intervention of a police officer. He promised at once to make no more noise, and asked only to be allowed to go to bed again. The Countess refused to tass the rest of the night in the same room with the Count. On the next morning, the Scfh. the Countess expressed her desire to me to call in a physician for the pnrpose of getting a statement of the brutalities of which she haa been made the object so as to enable her to ask for a divorce. I tried to dissuade her from this, telling her at the same time to leave the hotel during the day to avoid the curiosity of the guests and employes of the honse, and to continue at once her journey toward Italy, where the Count had, as he said, castles and Immense properties. She took my advice, and after having thanked mo for my good offices, the Countess left the Hotel Bellevne at 7:30 in conmany with her hasband on that same day. G. SFIERS. THE MLLYALE MILL Said to Have Been Fdrcbnsed, and Will be Pat In Operation In Two Weeks. The big rolling mill 'at Millvale station, on the West Penn Bailroad, formerly operated bv Graff. Bennetts Co.. is being- put. m shape, and will be started" in 'about to weeks. It was reported yesterday that Mr. Harry Darlington had purchased the works and would put them in operation. An effort was made to Bee Mr. Darlington last evening, but without success, and the report could not be confirmed. Mr. Darlington tried to secure these works some time ago, but could not make a satisfactory arrangement with the gas company. He therefore leaves the Elba Iron Works, which are in operation now. If the report is correct that he has secured the Millvale mill it is an indication of prosperity In the Iron business. Another report on the disposition of the machinery in the Millvale mill Is given by Mr. Benjamin Catlay, who was manager of the works for 20 years. During the past few days experiments have been made at the Homestead works of Car-necte, Phipps tCo., with the recently patented process of the Redeman-Tllford Steel Company.

The Followers of the Ex-Uov. Priest Go Bnck Into the Fold. The Church of the Messiah on Forty-third street is now a thing of the past. At a meeting of the members of the congregation last night they decided to re-enter the Baptist Church and drop the name ofBe-formers. Since the resignation . of Bev. F. B. Scully as pastor of the church, the congregation have depended entirely upon the voluntary offers of different ministers to preach on Sundays. This did not suit the majority of the members, who wanted a regular pastor. At the meeting- last night, several means were discussed to secure a permanent minister, but It was found that this was Impossible. Mr. Scully aupears to have been the only apostle of his independent creed. As they conld not get a pastor to permanently till his place it was thought best to discard the name Messiah. The Sunday school of the church consists of 100 pupils and the congregation under the new regime will number 300. Arrangements are being talked of to raise funds to build a church. On next Wednesday evening an advisory board will be appointed to secure a permanent, regular Baptist minister. TWO MDRDER CASES. Draper Must Answer for Murder A Convict's Appeal for Pardon.

THE EVIDENCE OP TWO HUSBANDS Is so Overwhelming She .Admits II, Claim-in? an Ocean Divorce. WAS SHE PERSUADED TO DOUBLE UP? An unusual and interesting case came up before Alderman Doughty last night in the trial oi Anuie Swinde, alias Simon, on the charge of bigamy, and the 'squire's office, together with the pavement in front of it, was crowded with a miscellaneous mass of men and women. The defendant in the case is a pretty little German woman of about 27, and judging from her innocent face and manner, we would not at all suspect her of polygamous propensities. The accusation had been made by her step-son, Albert V. Simon, and rested on the following story: t About three years ago Annie Bentinger was married to Carl Swinde, in Freiburg, Germany. Last year a separation took place, and the wife came to this country, where she made the acquaintance of Vincent Simon. ' On the 9th of last January the two were married in Philadelphia, Simon being in ignorance of his wife's former relations. They moved to Pittsburg, and on last Friday the husband, through a prayer book in his wife's possession, discovered the facts In the case, and his son immediately entered suit The first witness called was Joseph Mueller, who had crossed the ocean on the same ship with the defendant After some preliminary questioning the query was asked which developed the fact that he knew both Annie Simon and her German husband. THE SILENT COBEOBOBATION. The attorney then produced a prayer book and asked: "Did you ever see this prayer book?" "Yes." "In whose possession was it at the time?" "That woman had it" (pointing to the defendant). "Where was she when you saw her with it?" "On board ship, coming from Germany." "Was this page torn out then?" (pointing to where a page had been abstracted). "No." "That will do." The next witness called was Chris Bigelow. He had also crossed the ocean, on the same boat with the defendant and bad known her and her first husband. He had allowed her to remain with him a short time after arriving in Pittsburg; but on account other conduct, had ordered her out of his house. Mrs. Sellna Fritz was next sworn and proceeded to testify. She had befriended the defendant, who lived at her house four months. Identifying the prayer boot before mentioned as belonging to Annie Swinde, and being asked In regard to the missing leaf, she said: "Yes, that leaf was there when I last saw the book." "Was there anything on It?" "It contained the uate of the marriage of Annie Swinde to Carl Swinde." "Bo you know how it is that the leaf is missing now." "Annie told me that she would tear it out as she didn't care to have anyone know of her German relations." JUST MKE IiICENSE COURT. At this point the Court became very angry and excited at the conduct of some people in the audience, and one man was put out thus restoring the Court's peace and dignity. Vincent Simon, the present husband of the defendant, was called for the purpose of identifying his certificate of marriage with the defendant He was followed by the latter, who told the following story: About three years ago she married Carl Swinde, in Freiburg, Germany. About nine months ago she discovered her husband to be unfaithful to her, and immediately informed the Mayor ana her relatives. By these she was advised to come to America, If she could not live any longer with her unfaithful spouse. She also corroborated the other testimony given In .a manner-so simple that an onlooker would be convinced she was doing what she thought perfectly right This closed the case, and the Court wishing to be lenient with her, placed her under $500 ball. She was unable to procure this, and was committed to jail to await a court trial. Alderman Doughty, in speaking to The Dispatch reporter, Bald: "I don't believe that she Intended to do wrong. In fact It appears to me as if she thought that crossing the ocean and coming into this country severed all her relations with her German husband. This notion was probably drummed into her head bv those instrumental in securing her departure.1' ALL WAS QUIET. The Flint Glass People Settled Their Differences Amlcnbly. The joint convention of the Executive Committees of the flint glass workers and manufacturers, who have been meeting during the last few days for the purpose of adjusting a few classifications of goods, adjourned last night after the question had been partially settled. These classifications of prices on different articles had frequently caused hard feeling In some ot the glasshouses between the employers and the workers. All except one article was settled by yesterday's conference, and no tronble will occur. Tho statement that the question of advancing the men's wages would likely canse a disagreement, and possibly a strike, was utterly refuted yesterday. The committee of the workers did say that 'hey contemplated a request of having wages raised in the future; but the ?uestlon was not discussed, because the manu-acturers maintain that they never made any promise of an increase in the pay. Yesterday rule IV., which says, that gathering boys shall.work for six. months as apprentices for 10 per cent less than list prices, came up for discussion, because several of the manufacturers seemed to pat different meanings .to the words. That was also settled, the rule to remain as It stands. The meeting adjourned at 6 o'clock, to convene again in the latter part of next week. COULDN'T FIND THE GOODS. An Officer Said to Have Notified Some Thieves They Were Wanted. Detective Allen, of Gilkenson's Detective Agency, has been at work for several days on the robbery of $1,200 worth of goods from Charles Klopfer's clothing store at Sharps-burg. The robbery occurred about four weeks ago, and Officer Allen finally succeeded in locating the stolen goods. He took another officer into his confidence and told him where the goods were. A search warrant was Issued, but when six houses were scaiched yesterday none of the goods conld be lound. Detective All en said last night that the man whom he took into his confidence must have given the suspected people a "tip," as no stolen property was found. FINED FOR BAD MILK.

The Members oTlhe Sontbslde Presbyterian Church Who Did aod Did Mot Waat the New Instrument. , The congregation of the Southside Presbyterian Church held'aneeting last night in the lecture room of the church and decided to purchase a new organ, which will cost $3,250. But thereby hangs a tale. A gentleman, who Is a member of the church explained last night about as follows, regarding the new purchase : "It is a well known fact that our church has been in a pretty bad way for a long time, and. the administration of the Rev. Alexander Jackson did not improve the church any, financially. Since our new pastor, however, has come here, things are beginning to look -up, and. of course, it has been found that the church wants a great deal of Improving and beautifying. But all that requires money. A new organ seemed to be an object of great necessity, only the money to buy one was not at hand. . . . "In this difficulty a gentleman offered to buy a lot adjoining the church for $1,200, as a financial aid in their undertaking. This caused quite a rupture, however. In the congregation, and it looked quite senous at one time. There was one faction willing to sell the lot but the other expressed themselves satisfied to come to church and listen to the old organ sooner than sacrifice a piece of property that improves the entire frontage ot the church. "The meeting to-night was held for the purpose of getting all the church members together, and have them discuss the question. The argumentations lasted tor nearly two hours, and they were conducted in a very spirited manner in some instances. However, a vote was at last taken, the result of which being that the church is going to retain the lot ad buy the organ as well." The Instrument is to be as fine a one as can be obtained sor the money. ALWAYS DRY ON ONE SIDE. An Ohio Mnn Who Never Perspires Except on Half His Body. Wavebly, O., March 27.
