C. JAY GOODNOUGH, Sec'y.
Will you kindly allow me a brief
space in your columns to answer the last part of
Mose Carpenter's attempted self-vindication in
the "Letterman matter," in last week's issue.
I would say to Mose Carpenter that he has
made another mistake when he refers to "Rip"
as "Hercules." Goon and fight "Kip," but let
"Hercules" alone, for when you aim your shafts
at me you have struck the wrong hen roost and
won't need one of Sam McCoole's line-tooth
combs for your blond curls, when you are through.
I have had nothing to do with this matter what
ever. I let family affairs fight family affairs and
you have mistaken some of them for me, or pur
posely tramped on my toes, and you know what
that means. lam never ashamed of my ancest
Now, Mr. Mose Carpenter you have dished up
a lot of hash in this matter and It has evidently
soured on your stomach. The natural conse
quence is you have squealed— something for wh icli
you are notorious. Yes, notoriety pales its face
when you are set up as a squealer or boaster.
You may have as many friends as I have, but
they were among the missing the morning after
the election, when you ran for commissioner,
and you went down the street like a Thanksgiv
ing gobbler, making everything red, until you
ran up against something small in boots. Then
i the color changed, but your old ways don't
change, Mose, they will be with you until the
i resurrection morning, and the apple boughs will
' blossom a good many times before that day.
I I have never stooped to protect a felon, either
i by voice or pen and 1 am sorry that the accom-
I plislied Mose Carpenter, with a home circle as
I bright as his, should draw his sword in such a
cause and then squeal.

"Mrs. Clara C.Hoffman, of Missouri,
j delivered a most powerful address, entitled "The
| Dominant Issue," under the auspices of the West
i Side W. C. T. U. in Western Avenue Methodist

; The national reputation of Mrs. Hoffman as a

the finest efforts of her life. The rich melody of
' her strong voice, Hie deep pathos >t her pleading,

EMPORIUM, PA., THURSDAY, MARCH 10,1898.
Last Sunday was the last Missionary
Sunday for this conference year in the M. E.
Sunday School, the collection for this Sunday
amounted to $37.. r >B»sl2s for the year.
After the study of the lesson, the superintend
ent said that he, personally and as an officer of
the school, regretted very much that we would
to-day lose a friend and for eight years a faithfuj
teacher of a class of young men, by 11. A. Cox
moving to Philadelphia. When he looked over
the school, there were just four teachers who
have a clasa to-day, that were teaching five years
ago when he first took charge of the school, viz:
Mr. Huntington, Mr. Cox, Mrs. White and Mrs.
Larrahee. When Dr. Benedict, of State College,
visited this school last October, about the first
thing that he called attention to was Mr. Cox's
large class of twenty-two young men in Sunday
School. But Mr. Cox has taught his class to-day
probably for the last time. Who is going to rise
up and take his place, is a question that gave the
superintendent much concern ? He advised each
member of the class to follcw the exemplary life
set them by their teacher.
The class having appointed Orlo Jordan, Don
M. Larrabee and W. O. Downey, as a committee
to draft resolutions, which they read at this
time, as follows:
WHEREAS, Our teacher, Mr. H. A. Cox, isabout
to permanently sever his connection with us and
take up his residence in Philadelphia. There
fore be it
Resolved, That we take this occasion to express
to him our sincere and high appreciation of his
long continued and efficient faithful services as
teacher and our earnest regret at parting with
him. Serving this class as teacher for many
years, he has increased its members, inspired it
with zeal and its work of great benefit to all the i
members and we improve this opportunity of
cordially expressing to him our respect, our love
and our gratitude.
Mr. Cox made appropriate reply to the resolu
tions, after which the school sung a song selected
by the class: "Soon the Heaping Time Shall
Come for the Se ds We've Sown." Closing piece
sung by the school: "We'll Never Say Good-bye
in Heaven." After the school was dismissed the
members bade Mr. Cox good bye. Harry F.
Jordan, a member of his class wrote the follow
'Twas a bright and glorious Sunday,
Nature seemed to lend her aid
In staying winter's reign for one day ;
Spreading ioy o'er hill and glade.
Through those long and quiet hours
The birds seemed saying, come, be glad ;
Yet within this class of ours
Every heart was sore and sad.
Our teacher, loved, respected,
Through these many years has been
Teaching us to be protected
From the curse of shame and sin.
But he leaves us on the morrow,
i n ~♦»»«,. his cross to bear ;
Leaving us alone in sorrow.
Lightening not our load of care.
But we still will be contented,
As it is uur Master's will;
And the ties that were cemented,
Now will bind us closer still.
Though lie may have felt morose,
Thought his teachings were in vain;
He shall bear his fruit with those
Who have labored in Mis Name.
TliougH we never more may meet him,
While we miss him more and more;
Yet we hope we all may greet him
Over 011 the other shore.
Next Sunday this school will give a collection
for the support of the pastor. It is hoped every
member will give something, so they can say '
that they supported the gospel at home, as well
as in foreign lands. This new feature of the
Sunday School, taking a collection for the sup- j
port of its own pastor, is one that should have
the support of every Sunday School worker. The j
Sunday School teaches its members to give to I
foreign missions, but does not give the younger i
scholars an opportunity to support its own pastor. ;
Forty-eight new members were received in this
school since first Sunday in January. A visitor'
to this school gave its superintendent twenty-five
dollars for a library for the primary department.
Model blocks to teach with have also been
adopted for the primary room.
FALLS INTO A CELLAR.
Last Friday, while Mrs. A. Kresge
was engaged moving liis household goods from
the house on Fourth street known as the Crea
ton v property, had the misfortune to step into a
trapdoor, falling into the cellar, a distance of
seven feet, breaking her left leg attheankle. Dr.
Hcilman was called and reduced the fracture,
after which she was taken to the home of her
son, Harry Kresge, on Fifth street.
UNDER THE WHEKLS.
Tuesday, about two o'clock, Chas. Kresge, de*
siring to ride up to his father's home, on Wes 1,
Creek, attempted to board a fast freight, at the
I'. iV E. depot at this place l - He was thrown un
der the car and it is a miracle that he was not
ground to pieces. The brake beam caught him.
throwing him against the wheels, but before the
wheels passed over his legs, he was pulled from
under the car by two men standing a! the depot.
Hi? left leg was broken at the ankle and other
wise injured. Dr. Heilman was called at once
and the injured man taken to the home of his
brother. Many witnessed the attempt of the
young man to board the train and were surpris
tosee the effort, knowing that lie would be either
killed or maimed. The injured man had just re
covered from a week's sickness and being weak,
it was a very foolish attempt-even for a well

many people who would like to have photographs
of themselves or their families, but owing to the
extreme hard times, really have not the money
to pay for my Beat work, and the cheap work
they don't want. Appreciating this fact, that my
customers know good work when they see it,

on their Hunts Run well, after drilling 1,500 feet.

of oil or gas. The Company hopes to commence
operations on No. 3, in the near future.
We are informed a certain W. N. Y.

he repeats the offense will be promptly arrested
and dealt with according to law.

A NEW SIO,OOO STONE CHURCH!
Emmanuel Episcopal Church Prepar
ing to Erect a Stone Edifice.
The rumor having been circulated
lately that a new church would be
erected by the Episcopalian congrega
tion of this place, the following from
The Parish News, published at this
place, will be interesting to the friends
of the church, as well as all who love
to see new signs of prosperity and im
provements in our town:
While we are not able as yet to an
nounce that the Rector, Wardens and
Vestrymen of Emmanuel Church have
made the final plunge in undertaking
the construction of a new stone Church,
we are glad to say that the present
outlook for that project is very favor
able. A short time ago the Vestry ap
pointed a committee to take subscrip
tions for the new church, and it is ex
pected that this committee will be able
to report progress in a few days. De fi
nite promises aggregating more than
$6,000 have already been given. We
need SIO,OOO, and the prospect of get
ting it is good. Just how soon the
work of construction will begin—pro
vided the necessary amount is sub
scribed—we of course are not able
to_ say, but we see nothing to be
gained by an unnecessary delay after
the funds have once been subscribed.
It may be that we shall be able to begin
the work this spring. We hope that it
will be possible.
We may state briefly some of the
reasons for undertaking to build a new
The present Church is an old frame
building and cannot be expected to
last an unlimited number of years
longer The time is sure to come
sooner or later when it will be actually
unfit for purposes of worship—at least
without expensive alterations and re
pairs. But why not let the morrow
take thought for the things of itself?
Why assume the burdens of the future
in advance? Why not wait until the
old Church is actually becoming use
less before undertaking the construc
tion of a new church ? We answer
that the present is in a much better
position to bear the burden than the
future is likely to be. It may not be
so easy to got SIO,OOO ten years hence
as it is now. By the time the old
church has become actually unfit for
building. At the same time we should
remember that in all human proba
bility a Church will be need hero for
all time to come. While the future
does not seem to have any phenomen
al boom in store for our town, Empori
um will always retain its position as
the political and industrial center of
Cameron county, and it is inconceiv
able that the Church w ill ever abandon
the firm foothold which she has main
tained here for so many years. While
we do not advise crossing bridges be
fore we come to them, we do believe
in making sure that the bridges will be
in place when the time comes to cross
them. In other words, it is our duty
to consider the future needs and
future resources of the Parish, and to
make the fullest provision in our pow
er to insure something more than a
bare struggling existence of the Parish
in the years that are to come.
But there are present as well as
future needs to be considered in dis
cussing the advisability ofa new church.
Our parochial activities are handicap
ped for want of a parish house. If we
build a new Church, the old building
can be moved to the rear of the lot and
used for a parish house. We would
thus bo provided with a suitable place
for holding our Sunday School, guild
meetings, festivals, etc. As regards
the new Church itself, no one will
deny that it would be an advantage in
the present as well as a necessity in
the future We believe in an honest
and reasonable economy; we are op
posed to extravagance, whether in in
dividuals or parishes, we do not think
that clothes make a man, nor do we
think that a fine church makes a parish.
But is it not true that a man's clothes
go a great way in showing what he is?
And is it not also true that the church
building goes a great way in showing
what the parish is? It is a duty which
individuals owe to themselves, and a
duty which tliey owe to society as
well, to dress just as well as they can
honestly afford to do; and it is a duty
which a parish owes to itself and to
the community at large to provide
itself with the most substantial and at
tractive church building that it can
honestly afford to build.
It would not be fair, of course, to
hide from ourselves the sacrifices
which this eft'ort would involve, and
also the increased expenses in keeping
up two buildings instead of one. The
property valuation of the Parish would
be considerably increased, and this
would mean increased assessments for
the Convention and Episcopal Funds.
It has been objected, too, that a parish
with a stone church is expected to do
better by the various Church Boards
and charitable causes, and that
this parish lias enough of such
appeals already. Wo shall leave the
Christian spirit of the parish to deal
with this objection. The sacrifices
which a new church means will not all
be on the part of the parish. For the
Rector it means that for the present
he must forego—what he would
otherwise be justified in asking—an in
crease in his small stipend.
Don't squander §6O for a steel range
when you can purchase a better one at
Walker, Howard & Co.'s for less than
half the money. Don't be fooled.
