Wool) SHED.—An -angry political ex

Saturday. Jest, the worst display of it be

Warmouth had a standing feud with the

Warmouth stabbed him so severely that

DANGEROUS PRACTICE.—The Valley
Spirit makes the following sensible sug
gestion, which will apply to more towns
than Chambersburg :—lt has become the
rule for people to send to the stores fur
kerosene oil, after nightfall. The dealer
must of necessity bring a light into dan
gerous proximity to the oil, to enable him
to see to fill the vessel, thereby endanger
ing his own life and property. It also
suggests the fact that persons are in the
habit of filling their lamps in the evening,
instead of in the morning by daylight as
they should. Kerosen', even of the best
quality, is dangerous if improperly used.
No amount of familiarity with its use
will obviate this difficulty. As a matter
of precaution we would suggest that deal
ers refuse to furnish the article after dark,
and that housekeepers insist upon having
their lamps filled and trimmed by day
light. Nutnerous terrible accidents teach
u 3 that human life and property are al
ways at stake where the reverse is prac

Mr. Editor:—lt occurs to me that the
Christmas Festival held in the Lutheran
chiirch in your town, on Thursday eve-,
ning last; and conducted by the Sabbath
School of that large and flourishing ion
gregation, deserves special notice. Many
say it was the best. service of that kind
ever held in that house. There was no.
effort at display, no aim at "smartness",
no attempt at shovr.but good taste and
wholesome - instruction characterized the
whole worship. The exercises consisted
of addresses and music and gifts,.to about
two hundred children.
Allow me to give you, as far as I can
recall, a brief account' of the different
parts of the service., Prayer andreadlng
of the Scriptures were conducted by the
able and esteemed pastor of the Refinni
ed Church; Rev. Mr. Hibshman. Then
came the welcome address of Dixon Geis
er a boy of ten summers, in which he sa
luted the audience in the name of the
school and then gave altouching account
of thi li of our Saviour, reminding
us of hiss
eetuess and innocence as a
babe, also f the song of the angels, 'the
joy of the shepherds and homage of the
wise men of thelEast.
Then we were most charmingly enter
tained by a few songs from the Infant
School. Never before did the words of
the holy Saviour appear so true and sub
lime to us as now: "Out of the mouths
of babes and sucklings God halt perfect
ed praise." The teachers whoever they
be, of this department deserve much praise
and gratitude for their patience and skill
in teaching all,these "little ones" how to
worship God so acceptably and 'Well.
J. Marbourg Needy now -recited H.
Kirk Uhite's hymn, the "Star of Beth
lehem" iu a hatural and pleasing manner,
so also the Teacher's diadem by Victor
Good. Luther Weagley next in an orig
inal speech gave a detailed account of the
origin and work of the S. School enter
prise. He told mo something I did not
know and perhaps, some of your readers
also are ignorant of it that John Oberlin
a Lutheran pastor among the hills of
northern Franco first conceived the idea
of the.S. School and put his holy idea in
to practice. So Robert Raikes does`not
deserve the honor of beginning thii bless
ed work for Christ no more than Anini
go Vespucci the discovery of America.—
Let: there be honor to whom honor is due.
Joseph Sleasman now recited Pope's
description of the. Messiah, certainly one
of the grandest pieces of poerty in Eng.
literature. Dir. S. proved his speaking
abilittes to the delight of all present and
no doubt the though( came into many
minds, send him to college he will make
And now came the best "wine of the
feast." Mr. Will. Bikle with ten young
men of fine address formed a semi-circle
and recited from memory many passages
of Scripture teaching Christ in object les-
sons. They held in their hands different
objects in nature as a stone, a root, a vine,
to which Christ is represented and laid
them upon a table iu the' order recited
when the "Chieftain" standing with his
tall manly form, and long flowing beard
declared in deep full voice, "Christ is first,
last, the beginning and the ending, Christ
is everything, Christ is all in all." The
impression was prollunal. The large au
die.nee was moved and thrilled. It was
comething new, and striking and original.
May Christ be allto us and to everybody.

'BURNED TO DEATIL-A child was
burned so terribly, on the 15th inst. at
what has been known as Frautz's Mill, a
bout two miles west of Upton, that it died
on the ensuing night. The child's cloth
ing took fire while the mother was absent,
and burned until entirely consumed. It
was one of Mr. Hornbraker's children,
who resides near the mill.
Since - the above was put in type,we learn
the following additional particulars from
tha G reencastle Echo: "It appears that
her mother had gone to the well, about
100 yards distant from the house, for a
bucket.of water, and while there she beard
her child screaming and saw her running
toward her (the mother) enveloped in
flames. She immediately ran to the child's
rescue and . succeeded in extinguishing the
flames, but the child was burned so bad
ly that her death was momentarily expect..
