Bowers, Brown and Stover, but which are
believed to be assumed, were brought to
Beliefonle from Taylor township a couple
of weeks ago and lodged in jail for the
crime of larceny in that township. Since

on for stoning n freight train and the em
ployes on the Pennsylvania railroad near

and if by any improbablo chance they
should escape conviction they will betaken
to Huntingdon for trial on the charge* pre
ferred against them there.

—The new advertimmant of the Bee
Hive one-price fore* in this week'* paper
will repay a careful perueal.
—'The following is the paper entitled "How
to Study the Word of Ood," read by the
author, Kev. H. K Furst, of Bellefonte, at
the meeting of the Northern Conference of
the Evangelical Lutheran Syn<d of Central
Pennsylvania, which convened at Centro
Uall, ibis county, on November 'J, IHHI.
In commencing hla reading of tho paper
Mr. Furst said :
The topic assigned for discussion in this
paper is slated in the programme thus—
"How to Study the Word of Ood." It
will not be expected thnt even an outline
for a complete discussion of so iui|Hiriant
u subject can be furnished within the lim
its. It has become the fashion of late years
to suggest arid advocate ninny new meth
ods for the study of the Word of Ood,
most of which are more novel than com
mendable. We bear much of Bible read
ings—typical, historical, biographical,
chronological, &<: —but wo question
whether any who have pursued a course of
this kind have gained tnuch accurate Bib
lical knowledge in such shape as to be of
practical and permanent value. These
plans are too fragmentary and disconnected
to yield substantial results of such breadth
and height arid depth as may be realized
by a more systematic and rational mariner
of application. Iri all the numerous latter
day addresses, lectures and sermons deliv
ered or in the multitude of articles written
on this subject I have not once Jieard or
read a reference to what seems to me to be
the plan of plans, the very foundation, the
only proper starting point for an intelli
gent, connected and successful study of the
Word of God. That is to commence with
the central figure of ail earthly history
the character which is the beginning, the
middle, tho end, the all of Scripture—
Taking our stand by Hirn we are within
and look outward, backward, forward, all
around. Uur feeble sight is aided by the
halo of glory shining from his perfect
character, which illuminates and causes D<
stand out in a clearer light the figures and
shadows of the ceremonial law, and which
brightens and vivifies the dark prophecies
as well as makes real, edifying and practi
cal all biblical bisu>ry. The student who
pursues any other method only
around on the outside, groping in the dark
and resting on merely human pro|>s. He
may at times obtain a slight glimpse in
ward, or may occasionally enjoy a moment
ary flash of light that reaches out to bim
in bit insecure position, in constant danger
of falling. But the devout Christian with
in ha* the advantage of being fixed on the
Buck that cannot bo shaken—the sure
foundation—with the fulness of the light
of Heaven streaming through every pass
age, bringing forth in letters of living
light all parte of the revealed Word, open
ing with indescribable brilliancy the tem
ple of divine truth, in tbe very midst of
whiah he gloriously revels close by bis (sa
vior's side.
But, to be less figurative and more spe
cific, let each student remember and de
voutly practice tbe following three distinct
ways of reading and studying the Word of
God : First—Slowly read short portions in
connection with private devotions and
family Worship at least two or three times
a day. Second—Read rapidly at least half
a dozen pages every day in order to obtain
and extend a fresher or general acquaint
ance with Bible hLtory, precepts, lan
guage, Ac, Third—Spend some time daily
up>n tbe special study of some particular
book or other portion of Scripture, using
commentaries and other g<d helps, and
going as thoroughly as possible into the
connection and exact meaning of ail the
sentences examined. Never forget that tbe
best commentary on the Old Testament
ever written is the New Testament.
And while thus engaged observe the
following directions in reading, hearing '
and studying God's Word and in doing
Christian work. (I include tbe dotng be
cause none can so clearly comprehend
God's revealed truth as the devout Chris
tian wha daily, hourly, habitually, con
scientiously, submissively, lovingly, prae
tiff* the holy precepts.) First— Study dtli.
gently, I. e., bring all the natural faculties,
concentrated and consecrated attention, in
telligence, memory, In short all the God
given menial powers, to bear upon tbe
work; press them into the service of a
close, busy, searching investigation of
God's truth for the purpose of understand
ing aright and of being impreased aright
with that truth. Hoconi—Study eametlly,
With the burning desire of a conscience
stricken sinner longing to be right with
God; the simple and serious desire to be
come wise unto salvation ; a deepfelt de
sire for tbe good of tbe soul grounded on a
full sense of the exceeding worthlessness
of personal merit, and at the same time of
tbe exceeding worth of the soul's eternity.
Third— Study with constant and tpecial ap
plication to aelf SO jar oa warranted by
Scripture language. The Scriptures do
warrant such specific application through
out a very wide range of their statements,
calls and promises. Who can refuse the
warrant when tbe Bible makes use of terms
to universal at '-every one," "whoever,"
"all," Ac.?— Study as if personally and
particularly having intercourse with God
In Hit Word—as If that Word were sent
as a special message to each individual stu
dent. Fourth— Study df fruitfully of ttlf,
but depending on the prom iced apirit from
on high to guide into mil truth. It hi a
grievous obstacle In the way of spiritual
illumination to have confidence in our own
natural power* of discernment, for "the
natural men dlscouraeth not the things of
the Spirit," end we read "God reslstelh
the proud." It Is well to have a deep sense
of our own natural insufficiency and blind
ness, for we are told "Ood giv-th grace to
the humble." We are to study with all
our might, using all our [lowers as though
everything depended upon ourselves, and
then, distrusting ourselves, we are to put
ell our confidence end trust in God, as
though all de|>crided upon Him. Fifth
Study prayerfully. Prayer is the vehicle
of interchange between earth and HeaVeri
—carrying up the desires of the heart,
bringing down the dispensations of grace
If we are really determined on the spiritual
and saving understanding of God's Word,
then our will and God's will are at one and
the spirit of illumination will be granted
even to help us pray, as well as study, and
He will guide arid control us in searching
out the deep things of God as He has
veiled them, and lie will present them to
us c' -arly in the bright rays of the Sun of
Doing thiafrom a Christian standpoint—
from the very centre of the citadel of truth,
i. e , from Christ—with Christ, in Christ,
the learner advances; grows and glows
with 10-avenly knowledge ; becomes wise in
Christ's wisdom ; foretastes Heaven upon
earth ; the heart opens, expands, throbs
with implanted Divine love ; become* a
"fit temple for the indwelling of the Holy
Spirit," "meet for the inheritance of the
saints in light."

For IH Onni Dtwsst.
OniTUAitr.— On the Bth of November,
in Hpring township, of an overdoau of dis
satisfied candidate* of loth parties, the
Republican party, winch stood so famous
for a long term of years, died—gave up
the ghot. The ttrugglea were heartrend
ing, but it had to yield to the enemy at
laat,although every thing that could be dona
or thought of waa resorted to. Kven men
who heretofore thought it disgraceful to
vote anything but a straightout democratic
ticket took the field early -.n Tuesday
morning of election day and fought man
fully all day long against the regular nom
inees of the party. Home of those men
made heavy boasts—they even went so far
as to take fifty votes from the democratic
side of the house and add the same to the
Republican side ; they resorted to the de
ception of those who could not read what
was print-d on their tickets; they engaged
men to electioneer against a portion of the
ticket who were never known to bolt he
fore. Home of our hotter* have in bygone
days made themselves conspicuous and use
ful to some exu-nt in local |>litic. In their
minds they could do as they pleased with
the voters of the township. Home have
held offices of honor, others at this lime
hold positions that they shamefully dis
grace on election day. At the sacrifice of
honor, trust, or at any cost they undertook
to defeat a part of the ticket. They worked
in with a few of the leaders of the opposite
party, who took them for what they were
worth, as they thought; hut even they now
say they made a mess oi it, as they made
more voles for the Democrats than they
took away. We deeply feel for you ; we
hope you will sen the folly of the course
you have fiursucd. We know it is hard
to stand two deleats SO close together, hut
it is of little use to make a fuss about it.
You bad better lake things as they come,
for two or three of us cannot do much.
The township hat gone Democratic. You
■re politically dead now, and the only
thing you have gained is a Democratic
victory in Hpring township, with all your
combined efforts to defeat a portion of the
ticket. You are only the laughing stock
of both parties. The contract you under
took was too large arid your influence too
small to make anything out of it; so here
after do not place so high an estimate on
yourselves and you will get along much
