The public is cordially invited, writes an official member, not only that it may receive a feast of oratory .and biblical information, but that it may also be blessed of God, .and privileged to contribute of its earthly substance as well iu helping to cancel tho debt now resting upou the church, which, by the help of the people and the blessing of Him Who doeth all things well, we expect to raise on that day. "One of the unmistakable signs of the times," writes Rev. L. T. McLain, of Burrsville, "is that Cuba is not only lost to Spanish rule, but is also tired of official religion. The Christian spirit of mercy, which has gone to tho rescue of those oppressed and perishing people, will find a ready field for the propagation of the religion of the Lord Jesus Christ. Heretofore Cuba and Philippines have been almost closed fields against evangelical Christainity, but one of the benefits of the war will be the opening of the doors of these nations to the evangelistic religion of the Bible." Chihlri-n-n l)iiy Srr« U-I-M. Children's Day service was hold in Burrsville M. P. Church last Sunday evening. The church was tastefully decorated w i t h b u n t i n g , flags, evergreen, cut-flowers and growing plants. The l i t t l e speakers plead eloquently for the causo of foreign missions, and the solos, duets and songs by the school were very flue. Tho congregation was so large that it could not be accommodated inside the building, aud the men were nearly all forced to stand iu the aisles or on the outside, yet they listened attentively and contributed something to the cause of missions. Children's services were held in tho Methodist Protestant hall, in Denton, last Sunday evening, and tho room was crowded beyoud its capacity to comfortably seat. The decorations were tasteful, and tho recitations and songs by the children wore highly creditable. Superintendent T. Pliny Fisher had charge of the exercises. "Over the Ocean Waves," a very pretty quartet, was rendered by Mts. T. F. Johnson, Miss Angie Smith and Messrs. T. Pliny Fisher and R. M. Collins. The collection for foreign missions was very creditable. At Concord the children's exercises were rendered last Sunday evening, and consisted of the service entitled "Heroic Methodists." The recitations wore well said, the songs rendered in an excellent^ manner, aud the decorations ^arranged in good taste. The house was taxed to its utmost by the largo audience, and a number could not gain admittance. The program was entertaining throughout, and the collection was creditable, eighteen dollars contributed to tho educational f u n d . The Wheat Harvest. The wheat harvest in this section will soon bo ovor, only a few fields remaining to bo cut. The crop will be u n u s u a l l y l i g h t , acicago considered. Probably iu nothing agricultural has there boon a more complete (evolution than in the methods employed in the harvest of wheat. Only a few years ago the crop was cut by the scythe and cradle aud bound by hand, whereas at present the big steel binders mow the ripened grain and deposit the sheaves in the proper places in about tho time it would havo taken the harvester twenty years ago to whet his scythe, as that necessary duty had to be attended to at the end of each row.

All persons now holding sites on tbe ground are notified to signify their intention to occupy them to the committee before 4 o'clock on the day of meeting. Otherwise, writes Mr. H. F. Stevens, secretary and treasurer, their sites will bo disposed of. The Holiness Association of Caroline county, inter-denominational, W. H. Thawley, president, will-in a few days purchase a large tent, sixty feet in diameter, and will hold meeting^ in various parts of the county iu order to give those who do not attend ohurch a convenient place in which to worship. Rev. J. E. Smith, of Philadelphia, will preach in the New Jerusalem Church, at Preston, tomorrow morning and evening. The subject of the morning sermon will be "Christ in Rejection," and of tho evening sermon, "Christ in Victory." The Rev.

McShane, Miss Grace Stambaugh and her mother havo just returned from a visit to the soldiers at Camp Alger, Va., where Miss McShane's brother is stationed in the hospital corps.

Mr. Harry Hooper was killed by a bull Suu'day morning at his home, about two miles from Centreville. He had gone to attend the cattle, and having remained an unusually long time, his brother went to look for h i m , and found him in an unconscious condition, evidently having been attacked by a bull. He was carried to the house, and Dr. James Corkran summoned. Mr. Hooper soon regained consciousness and stated that the bull, rushed at him and struck him twice, and it was tho second blow that inflicted the injuries which resulted in death. Dr, Corkrau f o u n d thut four ribs on tho right side were broken in two places, and tho ends forced into tho lung. Mr. Hooper's body was badly bruised, showing that the bull had continued his attack after Mr. Hooper become unconscious. THE AMERICANS ARE NEAR SANTIAGO. T.titcst liullellii I'roni the Swm 1 T War-letters I'roni the IScij s. Spccinl dispatch to tlic JOURNAL. BALTIMORE, JUNE 2-1.--The American army is now within seven miles of Morro. The Spaniards arc fleeing to Santiago, abandoning fot'ls and positions. Mr. Joseph Parvis, formerly clerk to the comity commissiouers of Queen Aune's county, resigned his office to enlist in the army and was assigned to Company M of tho Fifth Maryland Regiment. Ho formerly resided tho Caroline lino, and has many friends and relatives in this county. Ho has just written'a letter to the local lodge of Knights of Pythias, oE which he was a member. In it he says: "We have a. lovely situation about three hundred yards from Tampa bay, a b e a u t i f u l sheet, re- m i n d i n g me of Basteui b.vy. The constant breeze renders it almost a paradise in comparison with C n m p Thomas. The nights are delightful and except from nine to three wo are comfortable. "Our table is not all.that tho epicure would desire, but we have been 'living on the fat of the laud,' and if I ever again feel kindly toward tho hog it will be of the razor back variety, totally devoid oE adipose. I guess we have oaten all the pork left over from the last war and are now getting fresh beef every day. We have not tasted bread five times since we left Baltimore, and I account for this by reasoning that the dentists are in letigue with tho commissary, for hardtack is destructive to teeth. But I am satisfied, fat, dirty tiud need shaving. I feel disappointed" at not having been sent to Cuba, for I want to go to the front, and think that every man without a family owes his services to his country. I, like the service and all officers with whom I havo come in contact. All tho boys are much in need of tobacco and a bath. Wet have spent all our cash and are praying for pay day. "I hope to reach either Cuba or home in the early fall. They are having church a little way from here but I was afraid of a collection and remained away and utilised the time by doing some washing and am now in very primitive costume while my clothes are drying. Tho camp is very healthy, not a man of our regiment being in the hospital, and if those iu power will continue to improve the menu and send us against tbe enemy, we would bo as contented as a regiment of soldier boys could expect." , · Mr. Charles E. MeShane, formerly an attorney at this bar, has joined -the navy, and is now on the auxiliary cruiser Yale, which, in a letter to his sister, Miss Katherine, at Ridgely, he describes as a floating palace, in which every mail has a' bunk, instead of a hammock, to sleep in. She is mounted w i t h eight five-inch guns, four six-pounders and four three-pounders. Tho eating, Mr. McSuaue says, has improved considerably, and ho adds : "We have a nice hard-wood table and a tablecloth to eat on, and get sugar in our tea and coffee. The latter is fair, but I wish they would not give us so much corned beef. Well, I guess it is settled that we will go to the Canaries and Spain. We will have a powerful fleet, consisting of the Cincinnati, Buffalo, Newark, Yale, Harvard, Dixie, aud Minneapolis. We will bo the scoutiug fleet, looking for men-of-war aud merchant vessels. Every prize captured will be sold and the proceeds divided among tho crew. We havo loaded up for a long cruise, and it may be a month before we see land again, as most of our work will be scouting tho ocean in and a ; o u u d Spanish waters." Mr. McShano has been signed to one of tho guns ou the forward port side, a Tory dangerous position. Speaking of his mates, the writer said : "Some of the best families of Illinois are represented. There is a professor of German, who left a $3,000 a year position at tho Northwestern University of Illinois; also a United States Senator's son, bank and railroad clerks, who left $100 a month positions, and any number who left $30 positions. Every young man has left a good home to fight for his country, and we will make a good showing. Everyone is cheerful and happy, looking forward with anxious longing for the fray." A E J i r i l !·'ir I'l-oni U i i i i K ' . A bird strange to theso parts has boon soon frequently of Into on the Audcrsontown road, near tho iuter- ectiou with the Dcnton-Willistou road, about a m i l o from towu. It is clct.oribed to us by one gentleman who has soon it more than once, as 'shaped like :i partridge (quail) and :he color of a dove, with a feather standing' high u p o u top of its head.' o s.imc gentleman observed t h a t tlih bird was very fleet of foot aud :oolc wing reluctantly.

Thi; iT:iryliinil Te.'ieliors The Maryland State Teachers' Association will this year attend the Xnliona! Educational Association, w h i c h will bo hold in Washington, D. C., to begin July 7th and continue four days, instead of holding the regular meeting w i t h i n the State. Agreeable headquarters for Maryland teachers have been secured at Room No. 7, E b b i t t House, where a party will be iu charge each day to add to the comfort aud convenience of our teachers. These rooms will bo free to all Maryland visitors. The Ebbitt House will bo tho general headquarters for all the South Atlantic States, and the customary rate of five dollars a day has been reduced* to two dollars and fifty conts. This location is most attractive and within easy access o£ the main assembly halls. This is a rare opportunity for teachers of this section to attetid a meeting of the National Teachers' Association at a small expense. Teachers iu this county who expect to attend should address the county examiner for further inform a t i o n . A Tragedy Recalled. Mr. Samuel Clough, who resides on the farm of Mrs. Samuel M. Rash, near Haydens, in Queen Anne's county, was in .Centreville, and made complaint before Justice William W. Bryan, Jr., of the action of Thos. R. Brown towards him, alleging that the former had drawn a revolver on him on ono or two occasions. The late husband of .Mrs. Rash was a brother-in-law of Brown. Brown was charged with murdering Rash "in the summer of 189G, but was acquitted after being twice) tried for the crime--first in Centreville, and the second time in Denton. He has rented the Rash farm, where the tragedy happened, for next year, it ia said. Gaincy German Carp. Wicomico river fishermen are having considerable sport in their effoits to capture some of the big German carp which can be seen daily playing around tho abutments of the pivot bridge. Thero are a large "school" of theso fishes, a n d ' i t is estimated some of them will weigh from 15 to 25 pounds each. They are very shy and hard to get at, but occasionally ono is speared. Charles Mitchell got one last week which weighed eight and a half pounds, and Abe Jones one which weighed a pound more. One night this week a largo seine was stretched across the river, and an effort made to drive tho carp into it. Ono big fellow struck, but the meshes gave way and ' he tore a big hole in the seine. There are hundreds of those carp iu the river. The American Cuba in earnest. army lias invaded. General Shatter's forces, sixteen thousand strong, are encamped around Santiago, if they do not at this time occupy the city. Not a life was lost in landing this great body of men, ivhich is remarkable when we consider the threats of the Spaniards and their claims to be massing largo forces to resist invasion. The cruiser Yale left Newport News Thursday with troops to reinforce Sliafter. General Garcia, the Cuban lender, is acting under instructions from Washington, mid his assistance to the invading army has been valuable. The Cubans arc doing good work, and Spain's reign in the island is Hearing its close. Kxciir.sionq to Ilcliolioth. Tri-Couuty Council, No. ISO, Jr. 0. U. A.

At first it was t h o u g h t t h e animal was in a playful mood, and that the biting was accidental, but as,it acted strangely Mr. Love went out to kill it. Tlio dog t a n at a horse near-by and was k i l l e d on the spot by a kick. Mr. Love did not go to tho Pasteur Institute, as lie was nndeeided whether the cauiuo Ciili'liint; I t u l l l-'roKs. * For several years past boys living along and near l l i o river have made ionic money by c a t c h i n g bull frogs, and in sonio parts of the peninsula tho sport hu.s developed into a regular industry, and is profitable. We have he;ird that ou one trip two boys, operating ou the marshes near Doutou, captured about six dozen. They were out in a boat at night, and were attracted to the points where the frogs were thickest by their deep-voiced chorus. A brilliant light, with a reflector, was carried along, and when the rays were thrown and held over a big frog the capture with a little net was easily effected. In this way m a u y were picked up. Thero are professional hunters who spend the season in a kind of ark, following the creeks and the most likely places. Small shot are used in shooting them. Others use a hook and line. To the hook is attached a small piece of red flannel. The hook is moved gently toward the big green fellow's "mouth, and when with a deep croak he snaps hook, red flannel and all, he is brought to boat. Iu this case a net is used. Tho flesh of.tho two fat legs, the only part eaton, is extremely white, tenderer, it is claimed, than spring chicken, and of delicious flavor. All first class restaurants in the city servo frog legs as among their daintiest of dishes. illcdlcinnl Vnluc of Lemons. Lemonade made from the juice of a lemon is one of the best and safest drinks for any person whether in health or not. It is suitable for all stomach diseases, excellent in sickness, in a case of jaundice, gravel, liver complaint, inflammation of the bowels and fevers. It is a specific against worms and skin complaints. Tho pipins crushed may be used with sugar and water and taken as a drink. Lemon juice is the best antiscorbutic known. It not only cures the disease but prevents it. Sailors daily uso it for that purpose. We advise every one to rub the'ir gums with lemon juice to keep tliem in a healthy condition. Lemon is used iu intermittent fevers, mixed with strong, hot, black coffee, without sugar. Neuralgia, it is said, may bo cured by rubbing the part w i t h o u t lemon. It is valuable also to cure warts. -It will remove dandruff by rubbing tho roots of the hair with it. It will relieve and finally cure coughs and colds, and heal diseased lungs, if it is taken hot on going to bed at night. Its uses are manifold and the more we employ it internally tho better we shall find ourselves. A doctor in Rome is trying it experimentally in malarial fever with good success and thinks iu time it will supersede quinine. Fruit Dressings for Shoes. An exchange suggests some fruit dressing for shoes, as follows: The best dressing for black leather is orange juice. Take a quarter of an orange and rub it thoroughly all over the shoe or boot and allow it to dry. Theu brush briskly with a soft brush until it^shines liko a looking glass. A most convenient tan shoes is tbe inside dressing for of a banana skin. This is rubbed well and evenly all over the shoe aud removes all spots and dirt, as well as gives a fine polish, which last is brought out by using a flannel cloth for wiping dry and another clean flannel for polishing. A slice of lemon is also used as a tan leather dressing. Secrets of a Cu Much of the political phase of the Boggs case "might be brought out if District Attorney Vandegrift would allow Boggs to testify concerning the political Bght of 1894, when he was the real director of the Addicks campaign. Boggs might tell of just how the Republicans managed to cut the ground, practically, from under the Democrats and wipe out tho Democratic majorities in the lower counties. But the District Attorney seals his lips on the subject. Attorney John Biggs labored to get iu this evidence, aud Boggs boldly announced that ho would tell all about it, but tho District Attorney would not hear it. Politics must be kept in the dark. He Tliouslit Spiinfcmls Were After Him. A mad dog went through Tuck- ahoo Neck ou Wednesday last, and caused considerable alarm. A dog on Mr. B. Frank Rickards' place was bitten, aud the owner shot it. Tho mad dog was chased beyond Ridgely to tho farm of Mr. Gilbert Swaun. By tho time it reached there, several armed men, on horseback, were in pursuit, and they frequently fired at the dog. Will Armstrong, a young colored mau, saw tho cavalcade rapidly approaching, firing as they came, and he thought a squad of Spanish cavalry was after him. He took to his heels for safety. The dog was finally killed. LIVELY LOCALS OF LITTLE LENGTH. Tlio Kos Creek Ii:illro:il Hrfjun--Kcv. Mr. Morrow Ass:iultcl. -^ Wo referred several weeks ago to the fact that there was no danger in the passing of our boats in aud out of the Baltimore harbor, as they do not use the deep ship channel, but enter and depart by tho shoal water lying north of Fort Carroll and between it and Sparrow's Point. Prom the number of travelers to and from the city, by the steamers, it may bo said that tbe people have entirely forgotten their scare on account of the mines, from which there never was danger to our boats.
