"Peace "ba earth, and good trill toward
earliest Christian history, an event which
has been looked forward to with the greatest
expectation and most potent imagination,
especially by,the growing generation, as
. the mostimpartant of the year. To those
v- who have passed the heyday of life it is looked
irt forward to .as a reunion of friends and
w relatives, and" a time when the inci-
f ', dents, trials, and tribulations of their
existedcef 'during the time since they last
i met, will be poured into sympathetic ears.
Thousands and hundreds of thousands of
turkeys of all ages, sizes and conditions in
, life will be placed upon the Christmas board
throughout the civilized world to be eaten
by the assembled guests. Perchance, in
j: some few thousands of cases, only an at-
" tempt will be made to enjoy the fowl, when,
sfor instance, the length of time which the
bird has been upon earth is uncertain.

still held dear, despite their crimes?
A centleman, when spoken to on the sub
ject yesterday, said: "I wonder if the
Christians throughout the country when
they sit down to tbeirJChristmas dinner, and
while asking the accustomed blessing, as
the hoard before them groans with the
weight of delicacies, think of their fellow
creatures who are incarcerated in the various
penal institutions within a few miles of
them? Do they, while contentedly gnaw
ing at the fat turkey, think that the con
Yirts are nossiblv chewing the bone of dis-
5 content, or do they think the wives and
i children ot these men, who are struggling
through life's rugged path with the stain on

may consist only of a enp of tea and a crust

W To solve the problem a Dispatch repre-jp-"
sentative called at the penitentiary, the

former place he was told that the prisoners

T' menu which would lead with roast beef, and
t, le followed with vegetables, side dishes of
je various degrees of delicacy, mashed potatoes
ft1 and'tea or coffee. The "convicts will be

"A DEER IN TBE CODMT.
Extraordinary Kllllnc of an Enormous Bnck
' ' In Hnmpton Township.
An extraordinary thine happened yester
day that has not occurred for years and
probably will never in this county agaip..
In Hampton township, only ten miles
from here, the people of that quiet neigh
borhood were wending their way to church
whe"h a large animal dashed past them and
Into the woods. Some called itan enormous
sgoat, others a roebuck, and still others of
the simple folk declared it was the devil.
There was one, however, who called it no
such thing, though no doubt he would as
soon expect to see the last named personage
as a wild deer within ten miles of Pitts
burg, nevertheless he had seen it, an enor
mous buck at that.
Joe Jones, a thorough hunter, and John
Lunch, an excitable German, turned their
heels to church and their face toward home,
and in IS minutes, with every hunting in
stinct aroused, stood one at each side of. the
wood, while two boys drove the deer
out. The splendid animal dashed up
'to within 20 feet of Jones, who
nulled the trigger on the left barrel of his
gnu, which was loaded with heavy slugs.
fe ' .The cap snapped and the load of birdshot in
the other barrel were Buried harmlessly in
the thick fnr. Valiant Lunch, however,
was loaded for deer, and under the direction
of Mr. Jones, soon found the deer. He set
his teeth, shut both eyes, pulled both
triggers, and that deer was venison.
Mr. Jones was formerly a Pittsburger and
invited several friends to the leant nn
o'l-s Christmas. As for the poor deer, there is
'i. no donbt he was chased down from Clarion
5 sL county by dogs or hunters, as a fresh wound
jTT on his hip showed. He made a hard fight
yi- for it and lost.

HIS HOfiOE AND THE EEElHG.
Sesae People Who Will Dine at County
Hotels on Christmas 'The Record
Broken by 49 iHard Coses.
The spring of '49 wasn't a marker to the
nervous jump of the 49 in Central station
on Sabbath morning when John Gripp
japped sharply on the desk and announced
as his text, ""Why is this thusly?"
This break from the orthodox text was
justified, lor the assemblage broke the
record in numbers and appearance. Just
49 boozed, bilious, battered men and women
filed solemnly in from behind the bars and
faced the inevitable and John Gripp. f
Unfortunate number one was a rather
pretty youth, and His Honor's 'face softened
as he gazed at a downy mustache that
seemed to fairly curl with apprehension.
"My pretty boy," said he, sorrowfully,
"why do I find you here amid such sur
roundings? Why did you trr4o lick a
man twice your size ? Whv did the officer
chase you ten blocks, and why, oh why, did
he bring vou here ?"
"Because," said the deceptive youth, feel
ing to see if his knuckles were safe, "be
cause l1:ouldn'txget away."
Bob snickered at this and received a warn
ine dance, while the boy received-30 days.
All eyes than turned to the man whom the
turnkey called "Kaixt."
Mr. Kaixt, was a spectacle. He may have
been pretty at one time, but that was before
policemen and maces were invented.
-"What is the charge?"
"Lookin in women's pocKets."
"Eh?" said His Honor, sharply, who is a
married man himself.
"A peepm in women's pockets."
"Let him go." said Gripp. "Any man
who has the nerve to look in a woman's
pocket has my sympathy."
After several very ordinary d, d, d's
(very drunk and disorderlies) had been dis
posed of, a gentleman, evidently from the
country, clanked in, and to the judgment
desk and record.
"Whit's the charge?" a
"Full on Fifth."
"What's he matter with his feet?"
"Nothing, Tour Honor."
"Lemme explain this 'ere matter, Jedge,"
drawled the man from Washington county.
"You see, my wife's 'been reading of so
many people bein' struck by these Tere elec
tric litenin' wires in-the cities, 'n she made
me put on a pair of insulators. That's all."
"I found this man," explained the arrest
ing officer, "trying Co climb a telegraph pole
feet first, and defying any lightning to
strike him. I tapped him on the head and
he dropped all ot a heap, atfd yelled that he
was a dead man." "Let him go," said the
Judge; and how that farmer wili lie about
the ins and outs or Pittsburg.
They were having a pieasant time at
Dougherty's Saturday night and the fun was
fast and furious. Suddenly some inacropos
person yelled "murder," but he may live,
the doctors sav. The choice ones of the
gang received 90 days each.
Pat Kelly thought it was worth ?5, and
paid it like a man. Pat's fun consisted in
standing in front of an "Eyetalian's" store
and giving to all would-be purchasers the
gratuitous information the bananas were
rotten, the lemons sweet and the canay sour,
the nuts moldy, and the proprietor a Dago.

Toucans letter of Resignation From
the Kev. Howard B. Grose.
ORDINATION OP TWO CLERGYMEN.
X Fatal Panic in the Jfew Chartiers Church
INTEEESTING EELIGIOUS NOTES
At the close of his impressive Christmas
sermon in the Fourth Avenne Baptist
Church yesterday morning, the pastor, Bev.
Howard B. Grose, read to the church and
congregation a letter tendering his resigna
tion. This had been, to a certain extent,
-anticipated by all who had read in The
Dispatch last weetc the article telling of
the call Mr. Grose had received to the Presi
dency of the University of South Dakota,-
made vacant by the recent sudden-death of
his intimate friend, Prof. Olson, who
perished in the Minneapolis Tribune dis
aster. In his letter of resignation, Mr. Grose re
viewed his 18 months' pleasant pastorate in
Pittsburg, told ot how hopefully he had
planned bis iutnre work in the same prom
ising field, referred to the harmony and hap
piness of his large flock, and said that under
ordinary circumstances he would have
deemed it impossible to even consider a call
to vacate such a pulpit and accept a position
s5 altogether" different in both its require
ments and in its very character.
A CALL Fr.OM A HIGHEB SOtJECE.
But the call bad come with such unanim
ity from trustees, faculty and students
who only knew of the close relationship and
kindred acquirements of Prof. Olson and
himself and the impression was so positive
that it was likewise a call from the. higher
source for him to take up and carry on the
great work that bis dearest friend had' so,
nobly commenced, that the pastor felt .he
simply must respond to the summons.
The pastoral duties would, Mr. Grose
believed, be ably, earnestly and immedi
ately taken np in the Fonrth Avenue
Church, by his assistant, Eev. "William
"Ward West; and therefore he asked that
his own resignation take effect on the list
Snndav of the dvinsr vear. in order that he
might enter upon his new and responsible
position with the beginning ot tne winter
term, early in January.
At the close of the service, by tbe pastor's
urgent request, there was a meeting of
church members to act immediately upon
his resignation. Mr. H. SI Porter, one
of the deacons, presided; and, upon motion
ot Dr. King tbe same good man who had,
18 months atro, moved to extend a unani
mous call to Bev. H. B. Grose at Yonkers
the resignation was very reluctantly, yet
with entire unanimity, accepted; the ex
pressed idea of the sorrowing mover being
that the church should thus -present its be
loved pastor, a living Christmas gift, to tbe
great new University that had come to need
SOMETHING OP HIS LITE.
Viewed with regard to its effect at this
end ot the line, the resignation of Bev.
Howard B. Grose can only he looked upon
with deep regret A vigorous intellectual and
spiritual guidt, he will be greatly missed
from the most influential Baptist pulpit in
"Western Pennsylvania. A graduate of
Rochester University, he has many of the
sterling qualities of Dr. II. B. Anderson,
the honored ex-President of that institution,
who was ever teaching young men that,
more than all things else, he desired them
to be prepared and determined to "bring
things to pass" and his good right hand
came down with a bang on the desk every
time Dr. Anderson said it
"What effect this callinc in of Assistant
pastor "West may, have upon the newly-
organizea J-iinaen urove xtaptistunurcn
which had been until only a fortnight ago

General Obsermnce in Jewish Synagogues
of the Feast pf Hanncba.
The Feast of Hanucha Was celebrated in
the Jewish Synagogue, at the corner of
Fourth avenue and Boss street, yesterday
tbe Hebrew population of the orthodox
at 3 o'clock. This is an annual feast day with
stripe, and was generally observed. It is
intended to commemorate the burning of
Hannah's seven sons, because they refused
to be converted to an idolatrous religion.
There is no importance attached to the event
beyond keeping fresh the memory of some
of thegreatest heroes of ancient times.
The exercises yesterday were of A simple
character. - They consisted chiefly in an ex
amination of the Sunday school children in
the church catechism, and tbe lighting of
the candles in honor of the event At 3
o'clock tbe children marched into the
church from the school room and were
seated in tbe front of the auditorium. The
pastor, Bev. A. Bernstein, conducted tbe
examination of tbe children, after which a
number of recitations were given by the
During the exercises Master Harry
Gibousky lit seven candles on tbe altar and
read from a Hebrew work the meaning of
the celebration. The candles are supposed
to represent the oil that was bnrned il the.
temple at Jerusalem after it was recovered
Irom tne Syrians, xne on was bnrned for
eight days to purify the temple. The can
dles, representing nnrity, are now burned
lor' seven days, and one for each of the mar
tvrs. , One of tbe pupils then read a number of
prayers, with responses from the remainder
of the children. There were a, number of
other exercises in Hebrew, relating to the
history of Hannah's family. Master Louis
Hiller then read the benediction in He
brew. This was followed by addresses by Mr.
Bemstein, Mr. Fihk and other members of
the congregation in which the work of the
school was commended, and the idea ex
pressed that theUewish people should make
a ereater effort to educate their children, in
both the English and Hebrew languages:
After the exercises were concluded the
children were each presented with a present
of some sort as a reward for good attendance
at school. - ,

An Accident at the Dedication of tbe Char
During the Alication services at tha

yesterday, an accident occurred which for a
time almost caused a fame among the
The new church is a large two-story frame
structure. The church services are held in
the second story, while the first floor is used
as a school room. There were about 1,400
people on the second story when the acci
dent occurred. The seFvices were near over.
Bev. Father Tobin was in the act of ne
livering an address to the congregation.
Suddenly a cracking noise was heard and
the floor dropped about four inches. In
stantly there was a wild scramble for the
two doors Ieadin to the stairway. "Women
screamed and many of them fainted. About
a half dpzen ushers stood in the
rear of the church. Among the
ushers were4 Alderman McKeirney, of the
Eighteenth ward, and Richard McGarrell,
of Eleventh street They jumped to the
doors and by superhuman efforts managed
to get them closed. Then they began to yell
to the crowd to be seated.
Gradually the frightened congregation
qnieted down, and the voice of the priest
could be heard. An investigation- showed
that one of the iron pillars had been crushed
by the weight of the people. The stone
upon which it rested had been separated,
allowing the pillar to drop on the founda
tion unsterneatb. '
The dedication services were conducted
by Bt Bev. Bishop Phelan. Father Cos

Father F. L. Tobin. of St. Marys,
preached the sermon. The Hibernian Rifles,
