Sylvester Lewis, an aged inmate of tho almshouse, died at that insti- t u t i o n early Tuesday morning. For ' many years the deceased "was a small but conspicuous figure about the Third district voting place, an election never failing to bring him to the polls. The c o u n t y commissioners were in session on Tuesday last, but transacted little business. A proposition from the Talbot commissioners to substitute a better grade of pine piling for tho new Dover bridge was received, and will probably be acted on next Tuesday. Until Denton is -supplied with a bettor water system with which to fight firo, the tubular wells, used at times with success in the central part of section, should bo carefully looked after, and more wells provided for other equally exposed sections of the town.

The price paid -wjs $18,000, and included n collection of the old H a r r i s f u r n i t u r e . This price is considered low, as tiie land is p r o d u c t i v e aud tho buildings tseeptionaily v/oll constructed, the mansion being a large colonial dwelling of brick. Mr. Spencer Sadler was buried Monday afternoon at Sudersville. Ho died on Saturday evening after -a lingering ilinobs f r o m c o n s u m p - tion. ' He w?,s thirty-seven years of age "and, a son of the late Dr. W. J. Kudler.

Like ancient Israel such a people may say, "Some trust iu chariots, aud some iu horses; but we will remember tho n a m e of the Lord our God." This setting up of our banners implies f u r t h e r that wo will declare and wage war in the name of God. War may be an ovi! and greatly to be deplored. Homes ire saddened, lives aro sacrificed, and m a n y aro crippled for life- Fhefe aro also demoralizing 1 in- luonccs connected w i t h war. Such people will sock to avoid warfare and to live in peace, but there may come a time when war is necessary, t was such a time wheu tho ancient /anaauitcs had filled np tho "meas- iro of their wickedness. Then tho sraolites were commissioned' to verthrow them. Or, it may be ecossary to wage war in defence of nation's life. Such t\ people will eek to know God's w i l l before eu- aging in war. When it becomes ecessary for righteousness' sake liey will declare w;ir in God's name iid c o n t i n u e t h e i r warfare, asking mi t r u s t i n g tl.'e God of b a t t l e s for Lis d i r e c t i o n ami success.

( ' ., swan a n d , I IK 1 Our Chief Magistrate has requested all Christian congregations to ro- tnru thanks to-day to Almighty God for tho recent wonderful victory of our navy in Cuban waters, ovor the enemies of our nation. As Christian people we can hardly give thanks for any victory unless it be through our Lord Jesus Christ. Although, indeed, St. Paul refers iu our text to victory ovor death anclsiu, it is clear that he teaches that we can engage in no war unless such war be in keeping with the mind of our Lord Josus Christ; hence we must give no t h a n k s for any victory unless won in the spirit of Josus Christ,- our Lord. Our nation surely notified tlio whole world that this war should be a now thing in tho world's history. We go out. to lift up the down-trodden; to beat back a cruel and bloody tyrant; to give light to those who sit in darkness. We hoard the cry of the helpless, the homeless and starving women and children right at our doors. It was stronger than the Macedonian cry, "Conic ovor and holp us." Now. if I b i s bo tho spirit with which we went to battle; if this bo the spirit that load to the wonderful naval victories at Manila and at Santiago, then we can truly say, "Thauks be to God, which giveth us the victory t h r o u g h our Lord Jesus Christ. But, i - n ( h e other hand, if \\o forgot our I ' l ^ i - r a i l i n g as Ll Christian people, tuiil !!· g u i l t y of "cov- otousnuss. wlii ·'! ·- lii'ilati'y," desiring o n l y to .-.-id i-i. L-iy to colony, and millions t o i i j i i i i ns of money, then we may u n t bo t h a n k f u l for tlifso w o n d e r f u l victories, for they are not won in ( h ^ s p i r i t Christ. "Au.i vi-ruy o u r find i;s out," t h o u g h the God grind flowl n a t i o n has boon of Jesus sin shall mills of . Then again our rightly called the light of the wo.'hl; aud why? Be- nniuc mean 1 ; also that wo will cole- I cause it is the land of the free and brate our victories, believing them to have been given us by Him. Such a peo^lo, when they overthrow 'heir enemies in battle, wiil wave their banners iu God's name. God's people maybe temporarily defeated, but victory will eventually crown their efforts. God is a man of war aud leads His people to success. God fights with and for His people and gives them tho victory. Such a people will ascribe praise to Him and give Him the glory. They will esclaiin. "Thine is the victory, 0 Lord," and "we will rejoice in thy salvation." Those who set np thoir banners in God's'namo do it because of their confidence in H i m . They believe that Ho is the God ot" nations, putting down one and sotting up another, and meting out to all according to thoir doing. There is no future judgment day for nations. He deals with them in this world. They believe that He preserves and exalts a nation that reverences Him and regards His will. They beliovo that Ho will go before His people iu war and give them tho victory. - This confrdonco inspires with courage for the conflict, and promotes rejoicing even before the battle- Alter the battlo is fought and tho victory is won this confidence in God inspires grateful praise to His great name. In tho name of God the people of this country* have set up thoir banners. It was in His name the country was settled and our government was organized. Hero civil liberty was declared and this country became the asylum of the oppressed of other lands. Our government is a friend to the downtrodden and abused of all nations. Hero righteous laws aro enacted and en-' forced. God's word has froo course and isiglorified. We waited patiently and tried hard to help tho oppressed, all tho time booking to avoid war. But the hour camo when war was unavoidably occasioned. God and humanity claimed our unseUish intercession nnd into volition. A more m a g n a n i m o u s i h i n w jamonja; nations was never SOL-U t h a n a fron poople interceding 1 and i n t e r v e n i n g for au oppressed and suffering poo- ple who were struprrliug to bo free. This government was disposed to sacrifice millions ol' money and many lives, if necessary, that a Christian civilization m i g h t obtain in Cuba. God would chastise Spain Tor her long continued cruelties. For eon- turios she has drunk the blood of martyrs, attempted in various way.s to keep her subjects in ignorance, oppressed wherever .oppression was possible, and menaced the progress of Christian civilization. As Israel of old was commissioned to ovev- bravo; Iho roCuge of tho.oppress- ed a down-trodden of all the nations of the u i i r l h : the land whore every :nan is his own king, every woman hor o w n queen; a laud where every God-given f a c u l t y of soul, body and spirit can be f u l l y developed, and I r u e merit goes straight to its reward. 'In fine, wo aru called of God to lift np the whole h u m a n family. Shall we, then, forget tins high calling and go back to the slough of an empire, with all its machinery, that dwarfs the individual while it strengthens the central government? Then b o l t e r ' t h a t it had been our navy rather than Spain's that was recently sent to tho bottom of the sea. Then, whilo wo give thanks for the victory, pray with all'the power of soul and spirit to deliver us of covetousuess, which is idolatry; for if we rush into an empire, under the name of a republic, then it is clear God has blessed oven conquered Spain and cursed victorious America! So then we give thanks if the victory be through our Lord Jesus Christ. Iciitmi Ought tr, Ilnvo H N«w .7nil. Goldsborough S. Griffith, president of the Prisoners' Aid Association, and tho Rov. W. C. Stoudenmiro general agent, have just returned from a visit to the jails and almshouses in tho several counties. Of onr.jail and almshouso they write : "At Donton, Caroline county, Md., wo found tho jail empty. Almost tho entire year they havo had from 10 to 12 prisoners. Robert C. Rice, tho sheriff, being absent, Mrs. Rica greeted us and showed ns" through tho institution. Tho sanitary conditions are as good as can be expected in this old jail.

Tbe attacked city was evidently not prepared for the-onslaught and c a p i t u - lated at once. The city aud tho citi- del of city were not only taken but many of the citizens made captives.
