Last Saturday nftcrnoon, about 2 o'clock,
Arthur Hlttcnhouse and Frank Grubcr were
drowned In Flshlngcrcck, near tho mouth
oi Green creek. Tho former was 18 years
old anil wns a nephew of C. V. Low, of
O. W. Low, of Orangcvllle, with whom ho
lived, nnd tho latter, a son of Divld Grit.
bcr, and wns about 12 years old. There
were no eyo witnesses to tho sad affair, so
that It Is mere conjecture as to how It hap
pened. There wns a hunting match on
mat day nnd the Grubcr boy was carrying
the gamo bag for Arthur. They were on
tho Island nnd poled over to tho main land
In a bont to get a dilnk of water. Thoy
started back for tho island, when the boat
began to fill, nnd tho younger boy becom
ing alarmed leaped out Into deep water.
Ho could not swim but Itittcnhouso was n
good swimmer, nnd so leaped after him
This much was seen by a younger brother
of Grubcr, who ran home, over a mllo ills-
tant, nnd told his father that Frank wns in
the water. Mr. Grubcr went down thestream
and nftcr somo search two lints were found,
and later on tho bodies were recovered.
It Is supposed that Itittcnhouso was seized
with cramp. It was a very sad affair and
cast a gloom over the wholo community.

Laubach, Ell Robblns, H. W. Kline, I. N.
Connor and J. Sutton took part In tho ills
cusslon ot tho following subjects, with tho
Btibstanco of thoughts suggested.
1. "Tho true mission of Ibo S. 8." Tho
object Is a df finite oue to teach religion
to make the child acquainted with God, as
Ho has revealed himself In thu lilble. To
prevent evil rather than to euro It, by fill.
Ing the tender mind with religious truths,
and impressing tho heart with pilnclples
that shall lead them lo Christ, and lay the
foundation of a Christian life.
2. "The essential qualifications of S. S.
Supt. and teachers " They should bo de.
votcdly religious, havo tho Sunday school
cause at heart In deep sympathy with
childhood and havo good business tact,
but as theso qualifications are rare, tho
best talents should be selected approxi
mating to this Btandard.
8. "How lo retain tho older scholars."
By making tho services Interesting and at
tractive, by gradluc nnd promotion, and
by utilizing tho gifts nf tho scholars as they
advance, giving them positions as teachers
or officers, and thus Identifying them with
the Interests of the school, and tho corps
of S. 8. workers.
4. "Should lesson leaves bo used with
out tho Hlblo ?" Whllo nil of tho speakers
negatived the question, they differed as to
tho best modo of procedure. Somo wcro
for using tho leaves nlouo but contended
that ns tho lessons on tho leaves wcro
founded upon, nnd drawn from tho Hlblo,
thoy wcro still uslni; tho tlllble. Others

no doubt. Whatever the maker

There were signs in early
summer that roughness was
going out of dress-stuffs. It
hasn't gone out. It has changed

effects abound and nothing is
too unlooked-for except the
over-bright. W e see no sign of
favor for dazzling colors as yet.
We couldn't give you these
useful general hints a week ago,
