Over nnd over again,
No matter which way I turn
I always find tho book In ot life

I must take my turn at tha milt:

I must work At my tnk with n resolute will I
Over ntnl over njalu.
Wo cannot inoasmv) tlio need
Of oven the lluh s Ihwer,
Nor check tha ihnv of lh g itden satidi

And thy sun and tlumurnlng rain

Though doing bo not In vain;
And a Mousing Itlllng us once or twice,

Tin path Hut has ones been (rod,

And th i los3on wo nnco have learned
Is ucver S3 hard to repoit.
Thsugh sorrowful tears must fall,
And tho heart lo Its depth be liven
With storm and tempest, wo nocd them all
To render us meet for heaven.
'Tlictc isn't rv pretty ono among 'cm,"
saiil Mrs, 15ciison,wtlh small rugnnl for
tlio fcoliiifjis of tlio ten little girls ranged
in a vow before her.
"No," said tho matron of tlio asylum,
"thevo never is niiiuli of good looks to
spare 'mong foundlings. Hut then somo
of 'em aro real smart, and you know you
can have your pick."
"Yo-o-s," answered Mrs. lituison, slow
ly, thinkingthere wasn't much of a:lioicu
and wondering which of tlio ten orphans
was the smartest.
The littlo mils looked at each other
critically. They were accustomed to
iear oeoplo talk of their plainness and
awkardiiess, and the remarks of Mrs.
Hetison did not disturb thorn in the least.
Each ono wanted to bo tho object of the
visitor's choice, but tho rules of the asyl
um lortiatie to speaic unless spoken to,
and they could only show their longing
by eager eyes and expressive faces.
Airs, lienson had said, tliero was
not a pretty one amoiit: them. Scant.
sad-colored stuff gowns, gingham aprons

happy sho was! Delighted with every

really meant to bo "bound out" until sho
should reach tho ae of 18.
Tho large, well stocked, well fruited
farm which Mrs. Benson owned seemed
at first liko a paradisototho littlo orphan.
Everything was new and strange to her,
uiu sho would havo been very well con
tented had Mrs Benson proved less ex
acting, But fiom morning till uicht the
child was not allowed to rest. She rose
at daybreak and kindled the fires, brine

louse. Tho ltimbor and trash had been
moved out,but tho room was lai ge,gloomy
and lonesome, and sometimes tho rats
ran over the lloor, much to Buth's hor
ror. But sho did not coinulaiu.
As tho months went bv ltuth's hair
grew long and curled' over her shoulders
in shining rings, in spite oi her hard
and careless labor sho grew plump and
round, and tier cheeks were as red as

havo recognized her, so much did sho
iniprovo ou tho good faro of tho farm ami
tho puro mountain air.
Across tho road from Mrs. Benson's
lived Mr. and Miss Moss, a brother and
sister who, by their peculiar modo of life
had mado themselves much object among
their neighbors. They lived, apparently,
solely for each other, and it was seldom
that a visitor crossed their threshold,
Miss Moss attended tho affairs of her
household, assisted by a handmaiden as
gaunt and grim as herself, and Mr. Moss
shut himself up in his study every day
and spent his timo in reading and paint
ing, for ho was an excellent artist and
might havo mado his mark in tho world
with his brush had ho eared to do so.
Ono day when ho was busy with his
paints and palletle, ho was startled by a

had left her beds tiiiiiimleaud the natlor
iindiis'ted. She rail homo ns fast at her
feet could carry her,but fortunately Mrs.
Benson was absent nt her soil's, and
knew iiothinir of the stolen visit.
It, was not 1,'iiths liiil visit to tho
study-by any moans. Before a month
ind parsed nho had learned to look upon
this strange old iniiii and his grim sisler
as her best fiicuds on earth, nnd they
grow to love tho golden haired child and
to watch lor her coming.
Ono day, about u year after Ituth had
irsl met Mr. Moss, Mrs. Benson found
her ono morning bending over a pieco of
paper ou which sho was drawing faces
Willi a lead pencil. The water lor tho
washing of the dishes stood on the table
growing coltl, tlio lues were swarming
over bread which had been carelessly left
uncovered, and Ituth was so much ab
sorbed that sho did not oven hear Mrs.
Benson's step or know bIio was near, un
til the pieco of paper was caught from
her hands and a stinging blow descended
ou her left ear.
"You trood for-nothing littlo plecel"
cried Mrs. Benson, who was thoroughly
angry, "bo this is the way you spend
your time, is it'! Who taught you to
draw, I'd like to know? The next thing
you'll be asking mo to buy you a piano
or a guitar. I supposo you havo an
idea that I mean lo leave you my prop
erty. "Well, you'd best know 'first as

you've no call to get into idle ways.
You'll havo to work all the days of
your life. What money l'vo got 1 mean
to leave lo my son James, and not a pen
ny to any one else. You'll please not
forget, Miss, that you're a charity child.
I took von out ot chanty away troin
that asylum, and you ought to be grate
fill for it, instead of spending your time
over such nonsense as this" tearing the
paper she held into a dozen pieces.
"aow, go hack to your work, and keep
it in mind that vou'vo nothing to expect
fiom mo when I die, or whilo F live,eith
or. I'll clothe you and feed yon till
you're 18, as tho contract says, but after
that you'll look out for yourself."
Kuth shook and shuddered under this
rude blast. FFcr gray eyes full of unshed
tears, and her sensitive lips quivercd,but
she said nothing. Ono by ono she wash
ed and dried the dishes, and it was only
when they wero all put away that she
stolo timo to cry. Then she ran into
tho big, bare room in the wing, and
throwing herself on her hard bed, burst
into a fiood of tears.
Time went on, and Ituth was seven
teen. A tall, straight, slender girl, with
t wealth of golden hair, and a complex
ion so beautiful that even James, Mrs.
Benson's rough son, noticed and spoko
of it, though lie was married and had
three children and littlo thought for
beauty in anything.
Ilo lived three miles from his mother,
on a lino farm of his own, and ho was
in very fair circumstance, too. But ho
coveted his mother's property, and threw
out many a hint that ho would prefer not
to wait for it until her death, and
thought one roof largo enough to shelter
them all. But Mrs. Benson refused to
deed him an aero of land, or give him a
cent of her money.
Vou shall have it all when I am
dead, James," she would say, "but while
I live 1 11 take care ot it 1 m a good
manager, and the farm grows more val
uable with every year."
But one night tho labor of years was
reduced to nothing, and Mrs. Benson
found herself homeless and almost pen
niless. A lire, the origin ot which was
novcr known, destroyed her handsome
house, and burned to the ground every
outbuilding on tho farm, IForses and
cattlo were in tho stables, but all perish
ed, and worse than all else, Mrs. Bonson,
in endeavoring to savo her private desk
from the flames, was so terribly burned
that for weeks sho lay helpless at her
sou's house, requiting as much caro as
an mtaiit. .
On ltuth's shoulders fell tho burden of
nursing her mistress, and wen did sue
perform her task. No daughter could
havo been better to tho sick woman than
was she, and sho felt sufficiently reward
ed when tho doctor told her that Mrs.
Benson owed her lifo to the careful nurs
ing sho had received.
Tho prudent woman had novcr had
any faith in banks. Tho hoardings of
years of toil had been kept in her privato
Ilesk, and in spito of her efforts to save
it, tho desk had been burned, with ev ry
thing else in tho house. All that re
maiued to Mrs. Benson now was tho
farm, and sho had not a penny in tho
But her sorrows wcro not to end here,
No sooner than sho was pronounced out
of danger than her sou told her very
plainly that she must find another
'I have my wifo and children to sup

"Jitit. .lames, cried .Mrs. Benson, in

Vov a moment Mrs. Benson looked
steadily at Ituth, as if trying to take in
tho meaning ef what sho said, and then
covered her face with her bandaged,
lame hands, burst into tears tho first
she had shed for forty years. It seemed
to her that tho past seven years wero
spread out before her, and she could read
the record of her treatment of tho or
phan she had taken to her home "out of
ltuth's arms wero about tho neck of
tho weeping woman instantly ; but her
caressing touch and tender words only
made Mrs. Benson cry the harder.
"I don't deserve such kindness from
you, Ituth," sho sobbed. "Oh, how I
wish 1 had never boxed your cars or
called you names. You aro returning
good for evil, my dear, and no mistake."
Poor Ituth 1 Mrs. Benson never dream
ed what a sacrilico the "charity child"
had made for her. That very day when
Mr. Moss had put in her hands the 200
he Imd urged her to go abroad, to study
in Italy and France the art for which
she hud so marked a talent, and had of
fered to lend her the money for her ex
penses, to be repaid when sho opened a
studio of her own and mako herself as
famous as sho felt sure sho would be.
For years Ituth had longed logo abroad
and it was not easy for her to relinquish
all hope of seeing forcigh lands and set
tle down in busy life, bustling Barville,
as the prop and comfortof a crippled old
But her mind having onco been made

Mrs. Benson, who learned, to love her far
better than sho had tho selfish sou who
had been tried and found wanting in her
hour of need.

In tho year IHlfi He v. Jacob DcifTon-
bach moved to Bloomsburg and took
harge of llio weak and scattered inter
ests of the Iteforined church in this and
adjacent counties, lie was the first rcg-
lai'iiolorined minister who lanoied nys-
lematically and zealously for the unbuild
ing of these congregations. Previous to
his arrival, they had been visited only
occasionally by itinerants who in all
ases did not walk woilliy oi their voca
tion. Tho country being comparatively
new and thinly settled, and ministers bo
ng scarce, these lew leeblo mid scattered
ougregatious wero without llio necessa
ry dispensers of tho Word and bacra-
nients. Mr. Deiffenbach s field of labor
was long and wide; but he entered upon
its cultivation with much holy cotirago
and warm zeal. Ilo was then in tlio
primo ot lifo and had both the strength
and heart to work. Ilo preached at
Bloomsburg, Mahoning, Calawissa, Bri
arcreek, Milllin, Salem, and occasionally
) I'ishingcrcek. Jloorganiz"d both tho
ellcr and tho Fisher congregations
which at that timo wero worshpping in
school houses. His labor extended for a
time even to Conyngham, whero ho
preached during a vacation, and cate
chised tlio children. For several years
io also preached once a mouth at New
port, five miles below Wilkesbarrc. Ilo
csidcd in Bloomsburg till tho year 1822,
hen ho removed to J'-spy, and contin
ued to preach till the. year 1821, when.
ho was confined lo his bed with consump
tion to rise no more. FFo died peaceful
ly and in the hope of a blessed resurrec
tion, on the lilth of April, 182j, aged
11 years, l month and 10 days, lie was
buried in the old union graveyard on tho
hill in Bloomsburg. Through him the
Reformed church in this county was
placed on a linn basis aud took organic
shape, and he may justly bo regarded as
its founder in Columbia county. And
as we follow the outgrowth ot Ins labors
as it developed into several well estab
lished and self-supporting charges, we
can iustly pay this scriptural tribute to
his memory, "Blessed are the dead which
io in tho Lord Irom hencetorth: yea,
litli the spirit, that they may rest from
their labours; and their works do follow
them." Rev. xiv:13.
In the year 1829 ltcv. Daniel S. Tobi-
as was ordained and installed pastor of
the (then) Bloomsburg charge and serv-
dittill 18ol. During his pastorate it be
came necessary to introduce limgiisu ser
vice m addition to tho ucrmnn which
had been the only service hitherto ren
dered. Accordingly in the fall of 1814,
Mr. Henry F unk was called as an assist
ant English pastor to ltcv. D. a. Tobias.
On tho 8th of Deo 1811, ho was ordain
ed and installed at Orangevillo by ltevs.
It,. Iveilter and 11. llarbaugh. llcserved
tho English portion of this charge for

During this period of fifty years,
(181,r)-05) tliero was much home mis
sionary work and reconstruction ot
charges done. New preaching points
wero taken up, congregations organized
and new charges formed. Tho de
mands for English as well as German
preaching had to bo met. Mountains
had to be traversed, rivers forded, deep
forests penetrated, and long and tedious
journeys over rugged roads had to Lo
made. Indeed all that belongs to tho
pioneer life of a pastor had to bo eudur-
cd. The nrosont trencralion cannot too
highly appreciate the self-denvitig labor
of those pioneer pastors
The old mother

wo may add traveled much in her terri

"When Row "William Goodrich resign
ed his pastorato of tho old Bloomsburg
Reform chargo (Oct. 3rd, 18G5) it con
sisted of six congregations. Upon his
recommendation it was divided into two
charges: tho (new) Bloomsburg charge
and tho Oraugovillc charge. The former
consisted of tho Bloomsburg, the Heller's
and the Catawissa congregations. Tho
latter of tho Orangevillo, tho Zion and
tho St. James congregation. The par
sonago in Orangevillo was sold and
thoso having stock ceitifieates wero paid
their claims. Tho sacrificing of this par-
sonago should not havo taken placo.
Tho Orangevillo charge, in which it was
conveniently located should havo mado
special efforts to buy out the claims of
tho other charge.
riius.tho Orangevillo chargo was a part of
the old Bloomsburg charge. It commenced
without a parsonago and with a small
membership. Its congregations wero
also suffering moro or less from tho de
moralizing effects of tho late civil wnr. A
new pastoi had to bo called; tho sub
scription for tho pastor's salary had to
uu increased, uuu it must act uuicpenu
ent of its former help. When this now
chargo started out, it was liko an orphan
child, without a parsonage, without a
pastor and with a longestablished stand
ard of salary subscriptions too low to
rcacn anything like a competent support.
Indeed, tlio nrosnect was dark to some:
but others walked bv faith and bnlliivpil
that provision would bo mado to meet
tho necessary demands. Thov took
heart and called a pastor. Tho St. James
congregation, being tlio largest, tho most
support was expected from it. How
should tho standard of subscription bo
raised was an important question. At
length, Captain John Beishline, (now
deceased) camo to tho most practical con
ciusion and said, "ivo must douuio our
subscriptions. I will doublo mine.'
They all soldier liko fell in rank and tho
subscription went up.
Ou tlio 1st of April Row E. B. "Wilson
was called to tho pastorale of tho Or
.uiguviiio cuiirgo at a salary oi ouu, Jio
served tho charge till the time his death
!,, 1 - , r ... -.
in May 1808, not qtiito two years. His
death was peculiarly distressing. Ho
had gono in company with ono of his
daughters on a visit to his son-in-law in
Adams county, intending to spend a few
days with them and then return to his
homo nud tho peoplo of his chargo, On
Saturday ovenlug ho retired in his usual
health and in tho morning was fnnnddead
in his bed. Hois supposed to have died
of apoplexy. His remains were interred
in tho cemetery nttaehed to tho Anita-
villo church, Mr. Wilson was not nn
cducaled man, but had somo rare natu
ral talents which were coveted by not n
fow. Ho commenced preaching without
any special preparation for this worl,
but endeavored earnestly and faithfully
in the foar of God to preach tho gospel
and ndininistoritssaci'ed ordinances, JFo
tried conscientiously to discharge his du
ty to his divine Master, ns well as to his
people. His work on earth is now done.
Tho weary laborer has been called to
his reward in Heaven.
"Asleep in Jesus, blessed slecji."
The chargo being again without n
pastor and losing many members by re
moval, seemed to decline. From tho
timo of its organization to tho present
period, it seemed liko a child. It need
ed special care and nursing. On tho 1st
of August, 1809. tho present incumbent,
Rev. A. Iloutz wn called lo its pastor
ato. During his paBtorato tho chargo
has made marked progress. The aliena
ted members havo generally been brought
back; tho children cntcchlscd and con
firmed; tho church buildings improved,
and the chargo now rests on a good fi
nancial basis. Its contributions aro more
systematic and liberal; its Sabbath
schools somewhat improved; and tho
chargo has been materially strength
ened by the annexation of tho Ilidley
congregation from tho North Susque
hanna charge in 1871.
Though it is a small chargo In com
parison to many others, and can afford
to pay rather a meagre support lo a pas
tor, yet its geographical position, internal
harmony and spiritual lone, have secured
for it tho appellation of "A Bird of n
Tin: st. .t.uir.s conoiikoation.
Occasionally in tlio latter part of his
ministry, (1820-1822) Rev. Jacob Deiff
enbach preached in privato houses and
in a school hotifjo located where tho old
Pealcr and Bellas graveyard is in Fish
ingcreek township. Tradition says ho
was a lino German preacher and an ex
cellent singer. After his death Rev.
John Nicholas Zcizer who resided below
AVilkesbarre preached hero from perhaps
1822 to 182.). His son occasionally fill
ed his appointments. About tho year
182.) there was a Lutheran Reformed
log church built at New Columbus. Tho
Reformed congregation moved their
place of worship to this church and pro
cured tho services of Rev. Isaao Shell

1811) when they moved to the Groveling
Cross Roads school house. Hero they
remained till 1S.')2. The St. James
church being now completed, they occu
pied it and have continued there ever
since. While the congregation was wor
shipping at the Cross Roads school house
tho desire for homo English preaching
was expressed on the part of a few
members. Accordingly Rev. II. Funk,
who had already been preaching at the
old log church where tho present St. Ga
briel church stands, was secured and ho
became their regular English pastor,
whilo Rev. Isaac Shellhaminer remained
their German pastor. They continued
thus to havo two regular pastors till
tho close of Rev. I. Sliellhammer's pas
torate iu 18.)S when tho transition from
tho German to the English language
