the assessment would be email, only $1.50
Musio and devotional exercises came
first on the program,and then Hon. George
W. Fleeger waa introduced by Snpt. Mc-
Collough to deliver the address of "Wel
He began by complimenting the schools
of the state, county and borough; compar
ed the schools of to-day with those of thir
ty years ago, and gave some of bis past
experience as a teacher; spoke of the possi
bilities of the future, and what the country
expected; said that the greatness of our
oounty consisted in the greatness of its
common people; that the greatest country
on Earth was the one containing the great
est number of happy and intelligent fami
lies; that the aim of the common school*
ahould be to fit the children for the duties
of common life; that teachers should teach
the dignity'and, respectability of labor;
that to be a good eitiaen waa the proudest
position on earth; that education should fit
all for the active duties of life; that a good
housekeeper was better than a good musi
cian or linguist; *p<£* of the vices of pro
fanity, and dishonesty, and particularly
of the great vice of gossiping and telling
tales, eto. His address waa generally
oom mended.
School-teacher John H. Wilson respond
ed to the address of welcome. He said
they were all glad to be here, where they
would be fired with new ambitions and
new desires to do better, work; that they
were proud of their calling, though they
were the poorest paid class of workmen in
Oxistence; plead for justice and better
rewards; said tha (the teachers were pa
tient, happy and hopeful, and never
struck; that they were law abiding and
always looked at the bright aide of thing*;
that there waa no danger from immigra
tion so long aa the common-school system
existed; that the teachers would absorb the
new idea* advanced at the Institute, and be
found worthy of their oalling, eto. Hu
address was short but good.
The regular programe, as advertised was
then taken cp. Dr. Winship led off with a
discourse on Arithmetic, and Prof. Rns
sell followed with one on the teaching the
elementa of music, a thing that is gradu
ally increasing in public favor.
Monday evening Rev. Wfllett* held forth
on the stage,and what a dandy he is! You
never tire of Willetts. This was his sixth
appearance before a Butler audience and
had it been hia sixtieth the house would
have been crowded. There is a charm
about Willetts that makes even a poverty
stricken country editor forget bis dismal
circumstances and for the time enjoy life.
Though he is now three soore and ten and
his head is gray, hia eyes and his heel* are
just aa young aa they used to be; and may
he live forever.
On Tuesday, W. R. Hockenberry led at

educating the scholars regarding their duty
to their common country, and illustrated
his address by citing several great and good
Mr. W. G. Russel thought that teachers
should be interested in their work on ac
count of ita great importance, and that
their success as teachers depend on their
being interested themselves.
W. B. Scott attributed failure* in teach
ing to a lack of preparation, and think* no
teacher can teach well unless well and
freshly prepared.
Dr. Mialtby of Slipperyrock spoke of the
importance of inculcating pratriotism in the
bteasts of the scholars, quoted Lincoln's
speeoh at Gettysburg, and spoke against
cramming for examinations.
The Sohuman Lady Quartette, that
evening, played to one of the largest
housea ever seen in Butler.
The informal meeting of Thursday morn
ing was presided over by Mr. T. H. Pain
ter; Mr. M. H. Young of Petrolia and
Miss Maude McClymonds will make ad
dresses during the day, and the directors
are in session in the arbitration this after
noon. The Institute of this year has been
an unqualified success.
Thi great strikes during the last year,
and the votee oast at the reoent election,
may not improbably open the way to abet
ter knowledge of the relations between la
borers and employers. It begins to be un
derstood that the strikes were sustained by
exceptionally well paid workers. As soon
as it was generally known what wages
these workers were demanding, and how
they were suatataed by many labor organi
sations on the theory that the policy of the
Government ought to secure practically
whatever wages workers chose to ask, two
distinct effects were perceived. There
were some employers of labor in cities and
towns who began to think that it was bet
ter to stop the advance in wage*, even
though at the cost of some arrest of Nat
ional growth and development. There
were also many farmers who began to
doabt whether the National policy did not
render their labor too oostly. Thus three
distinct badies of men voted together
against that National policy, some farmers
because it raised wages, some employers
in cities and towns because it raised wages
more than they wished, and some wage
earners because it did not raise wages a*
muoh as they wished,

Opening of Congress.
The second session of the 52d Congress
met, Monday. There were lively scenes
in both hoases, the desks of many of the
members were decked with flowers; 224
members of the House responded to roll
call, Committees were appointed to notify
the President that both houses were it

members were presented, and they were
sworn in; several well known Pennsyl
varians not members were present; a
Penn'a member introdnoed a bill to cover
a possible deficit in the treasury; an Illi
nois member introduced a joint resolution
providing for opening the World's Fair on
Sunday. The resolution prohibits the use
on Sundays of machinery, unnecessary
manual labor, and all merchandising, pro
vides that the art gallary, horticultural
building and all other buildings in which
exhibits of art are installed shall be thrown
open to the public every day during thf
entire term of the exposition, and that
each employe ot the exposition shall bn
given one day's rest in each week; quite a
number of other bills and resolutions were
introduced; the Postmaster General's re
port was made public; be summarises the
results achieved by his department as fol

gross revenue; the deficit reduced nearly a
million :money order offices increased two
thirds, or from 10,070 to 16,639: 82 cities
supplied with free delivery; 2,792 new
offices established; 263 offices advanced to
tbo Presidential grade: 1.592 new mail
routes established, embracing 8,500 miles
of new service; ocean mail service extend
ed and pneumatic tube service introduced.
Of bis proposition to divide the country
into postal districts, Mr. TVanamaker says
its adoption can only be a question of time.
Each district would be put in charge of a
postal supervisor or director, and the
regular inspectors of the department should
assist these supervisors, as they might be
needed. The district supervisor could act
under rules, without reference to the de
partment at "Washington and without use
less delay. The department would come
directly in touch with the postal employes,
and they in turn would be better in touch
with the people served.
President Harrison's last message to
Congress was read in both houses, Tuesday
afternoon. It is an interesting document,
gives a complete review of the business of
the National Government during the past
year, fully states the condition of the
Treasury, deals largely with industrial
questions, and makes but few recommen
dations other than those regarding our
immigration and quarantine laws
From the message we make the follow
ing extracts:
To the Senate and House of Represent
In submitting my annual message to
Congress I hate great satisfaction in being
able to say that the general condition af
fecting the commercial and industrial in
terests of the United States are in the
highest degree favorable. A comparison
of the existing conditions with those ot the
most favored period in the history of the
country wilj, I believe, show that so high
a degree of prosperity and so general a dif
fasion of the comforts of life were never
before enjoyed by onr people.
The total wealth of the country in 1860
was $16,159,606,068. In IS9O it amounted
to (62,610,000,000, an increase of 287 pet
cent. The total mileage of railways in the
United States in 1860 was 30,626; in 1890 it
was 167,741, an increase of 448 per cont.,
and it is estimated that there will be about
40,000 miles of track added by the close of
the year, 1892. The official returns of the
eleventh census and those of the tenth
oensns for 75 leading cities furnish the
basis for the following comparison?: in
1880 the capital invested in manufacturing
was $1,232,839,670. In 1890 the capital
invested in manufacturing was $2,900,735-
884. In 1880 the number of employes was
1,301,388. In 1890 the number of employes
was 2,251,134. In 1880 the wages earned
were $3,019,650,778. In 1890 the wage*
earned were $1,221,170,454. In 1880 the
value of the product was $2,711,579,899
In 1890 the value of the product was $4,
lam informed by the superintendent ol
the census that the omission of certain in
dustries in 1880, which were included ic
18190, accounts in part for the remarkable
increase thus shown. But, after making
full allowance lor differences of method
and deducting the retains for all industries
not included in the census of 1880, tbert
remain in the reports from theso 75 cities
an increase in the capital employed of sl,
522,745,604; in the value of the product o!
$2,024,236,166;; in wages earned of $677.
943,929, and in the number ot wage earu
era employed ot 856,029.
The wage earninges not only show an
increased aggregate, but an increase per
capita from $387 in 1880 to $549 in 1890, or
41-71 per cent.
The new industrial plants established
cinoe October 6, 1890, and up to October
22, 1892, nnmbet 345. and the extension
of existing plants 108; the new capital in
vested amounts to $40,449,050, and the
number of additional employes to 47,285.
The report of the secretary of the treas
ury will attract special intererest in view
of the many misleading statements that
have been made as to the state of the put>
lie revenues. Three preliminary fact*
should not only be stated, but emphasised,
belore looking into details: First, that the
public debt has been reduced since March
4, 1889, $259,074,200, and the annual inter
charge 11,684,460; second, that there have
been paid oat for pensions during this ad
ministration up to November 1. 1892, $432,-
564,178.70, an excess of $114,466,386 09
over the sum expended during the period
from Maroh 1, 1885, to March 1, 1889; and
third, that under tho existing tariff up to
December 1, about $93,000,000 of revenue
which would have been collected upon
sugar, if the duty had been maintained hat
gone into the pockets of the people and
not into the public treasury as before. II
there are any who still think that the sur
plus should have been kept out of circula
tion by hoarding it in the treasury or de
posited in favored banks without interest,
while the government continued to pay to
these very banks interest upon the bond*
deposited as security for the deposits, or
who think that the extended pension legis
lation was a public robbery, or that the
duties upon sugar should have been main
tained. lam content to leave the argu
ment where it now rests, while we wait to
see whether these criticisms «ill take the
form of legislation.
The revenues for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1892, from all sources, were $425,-
868,260.22, and the expenditures for all
purdoses $415,953,806 56, leaving a balance
of $9,914,453.66. There were paid during
the year upon the public debt $40,570,467.
98. The surplus in the trecjury and the
bank redemption fiind, passed by the act
iof July 14,1890. to the general fund, furn
ished in large part the oast available and
used lor the payments made upon the pub
lic debt. Compared with the year 1891.
our receipts from customs duties fell ofi j
$42,069,241.05, while our receipts from in
ternal revenue increased $8,284,823 13.
leaving the net loss of revenue trom these
principal sources $33,784,407,95. The net
ftws of revenue from all sources was $32,-
675,972 81.
The suliject of quarantine regulations. 1
inspection and control was brought sud
denly to my attention by the arrival at our
ports in August last of vessels infected
with cholera. Quarantine regulations
should be uniform at all onr ports. Under
the constitution they are plainly within
the exclusive federal jurisdiction when aud
so far as Congress shall legislate. In mj
opinion, the whole subject should be takeu
Into national control and ample power
given to the executive to protect our
peoples against plague invasions. On
September 1 last I approved regulation.-
establishing a 20-day quarantine for all
vessels bringing immigrants from foreign
ports. This order will be continued in
torce. Some loss and suffering have re
suited to passengers, but a due cai« lor the
homes of our people justify in such cases
the utmost precaution. There is danger
that with the ooming of spring cholera
will again appear and a liberal appropria
tion should be made at this session to en
able our quarantine and post officers to ex
clude the deadly plague. But the most
careful and stringent quarantine regula
tions may not be sufficient absolutely to
exclude " the disease. The progress of
medical and sanitary science has been
snch, however, that if approved precau
tions are taken at once to pat all of our
cities and towns in the best sanitary con
dition and provision is made for isolating
any sporadic cases, and for a thorough dis
infection, an epidemic can, T am sure, be
avoided. This work appertains to the local
authorities and the responsibility and the
penalty will be appalling it it is neglected
or unduly delayed.
We are peculiarly subject in our great
ports to the spead of infectious diseases bj
reason of the fact that unrestricted immi
gration brings to us out of European cities,
in the overcrowded steerages of great
steamships a large number of persons
whose surroundings make them easy
victims of the plague. This consideration
as well as these affecting the political
ward, and industrial interests of our coun
try leads me to ronow the suggestion that
admission to our country aud to the high
privileges of its citizenship, should be
more restricted aad more careful. We
have, I think, a right and owe a duty to
our own people, and especially to our
working people, not only to keep out the
vicious, the ignorant,the civil disturber,
the pauper, and the contract laborer.but to
check the too great flow of immigration
now coming by further limitations.
The remarkable increase in revenues in
the number of postoffices and mail carriage
furnish furti er evidence of the high state
of prosperity which our people are enjoy
ing. New offices mean new hamlets and
towns, new routes mean the extension ol
«.nr border settlements, aDd increased rev
enues mean an active commerce. The
postmaster general reviews the whole per
iod of his administration of the office and
brings some of his statistics down to the
month of November last. The postal rev
enues have increased during the last year
nearly $5,000,000. The deficit for the
year endiDg June 30 1895, is $848,341 less
than the deficiency of the preceding year
. The deficiency of the present fiscal year
it is estimated will be reduced to $1,552,
423. which will not only be extinguished
during the next fiscal year, but a surplus
of nearly one million dollars should then
be shown.
During the last fiscal year the Secretary
purchased under the act of July 14, 1890,
54,355,748 ounces of silver, and issued in
payment therefore $51,190,608 in notes
The total purchases since the passage of
tho act have been 120,479,981 ounces, and
the aggregate of notes issued $116,783,599.
The average price paid for silver during
the year was 94 cents per ounce, the high
est price being $1.02} July 1. 1891, and
the lowest $0 83 March 21. 1892. In view
of the fact that the monetary conference is
now sitting, and that no conclusion has
been reached, I withhold any recommen
dation as to legislation upon the subject
The exhibit of the work of the executive
departments is submitted to Congress and
to the public, in the hope that there will
be found in it a due sense of responsibility
and an earnest purpose to maintain the
national lionor and to promote the happi
ness and prosperity of all our people. And
this brief exhibit of the growth and pros
perity of the country will give us a level
from which to note the increase or deca
dence that new legislative policies m»v
bring to us. There is no reason why the
national influence, power and prosperity
should uot observe the same rates ol
increase that have characterized the past
30 years. We carry the great impulse aud
increase of these years into tho future.
There is no reason why in many lines of
production we should not surpass all other
nations, as wo have already dono in some.
There are no near frontiers to our possible
development. Retrogression would be a
Tns discovery that the rifles used by the
German Army are worthless has
a sensation in that country. Some of the
officers have been in collusion with the
contractor*, and inferior arms have been
furnished the army.
They Were Reunited.
[Pittsburg Times]
Thero was a pathetic scene at a hearing
at Alderman John Cabill's office last even
ing. A father, his erring daughter, the
child he bad stole Iroru her, and the same
one she abducted from him, were the lead
ing ones in the drama. The lisped word
"mamma" decided the case.
The father is Frederick Barckley, a gro
ceryman of No. 3942 Chouteau avenue, St.
Louis. He had a blonde mustache cover
ing the lines of hi 9 mouth, and bringing
oat noticeably a German face, stern, but
kiud. The daughter was a girl with a face
pale but pretty, no suspicion ol' a bleach
on her light hair, and with a countenance
that bore traces of a hunted, anxious look.
She was not more than 18, though she may
have been less. The child, a sweet little
fellow of of about four, with blue eyes,
seemed to bo peeri ng iuto the fjturo for
pants. He had no interest in the hearing
at first, but at the end he decided jt.
The story as told by Constable Tanner is
one ol'interest. The girl, Stella Barckley,
tended shop for her father. In St. Louis
kindling wood is sold in grocery stores in
five cent bundles. Delivering this wood
was a young fellow named Kichard Scott
whose morning visits Stella seemed to
await with more interest than a majden
whose mind was occupied with the cares
of trade should.
When Frederick Barckley learned the
truth his daughter was sent to the hospital.
He watched over her carefully aijd when
she came home with her little boy, he
seemed to have lost all love for her and
to have, transferred his affections to the
boy, for years before Stella's younger
brother, his only son, bad been carried off
by a fever. She went out at nights and he
soon learned of it and followed her. He
traced her to a corner where tfbe met
young Scott.
With all tho anger of a righteous father,
he flew upon the pair aud tore his daugh
ter from the side of her lover. He took her
buiue and that night she disappeared with
her child.
Scott also left the city -and the girl's
father following a clue found the tbrea a<
Vincenne.-, Intl., and took the child away
from them. His daughter be cast off and
she aud Scott were left together. The
child was taken back to St. Louis and kept
there for three years. The mother went
with Scott piesumably, and was never
heard from until about 18 months ago
when the baby disappeared. A strauge
woman seen o'u the streets gave the father
a clue, a slight one. He then kuew the
mother and child had been reunited. lie
had almost given up hope of ever hearing
from either mother or boy until the daugh
ter of a neighbor came in one day and in a
burst of confidence said:
"I've heard from Stella."
The father talked to her and was to
shat Stella's address was at 139 Sc Id
street, Pittsburg. He came toPittsbntt
and after finding where his daughter linrp
tried to get the child, but she had seen
bim and the child was kept safely within
doors. Stella had rented rooms from Mrs.
White, who lives at the number. Stella
was employed in cleaning offices. Toe
father called on Alderman Cahill and
swore out awarrant charging his daughter
with abduction. Countable Tanner took
the*warrant, and last evening brought the
daughter and child before Albcrman Ca
hill. There a strauge meeting occurred.
The little one looked at its grandfather,
but would not go to him. The mother
and father did not speak nor pretend to
recognize eachotbor.
Alderman Cahill heard the story of both
and then called the child to him. ' The Al
derman was of the opinion that the grand
father was better able to take care of tho
child than the mother, but thought he
would borrow one of Solomon's ideas. He
explained to the child thav. his grandfather
wanted him and that he would iiava to go
back to St. Louis with him. The GranJ
father reached out his arms to the little
fellow, but be caught sight of his weeping
uiotuer in the other corner of the room,
and he broke away from the Alderman,
with his chubby hands outstretched appeal
ingly, saying:
"Mama, mama, don't cry."
The suit was ended then. Aldermen
Cabill decided that the child should a.'jy
with iu "mama,'' The grandfather look
ed at the two for an instant and then said
with voice full ofajactjon:
"Stella, will you come with me f"
"Father," replied Stella, "1 wanted to
go home iong, long ago, bat yoy n«s-or
asked me."
Gonxtable Tanner went to the girl's
home ou Scott street, with them, where
they told part of the story to the woman
from whom ahe had rented the rooms, and
then t'ney left (or the Union depot to no to
St. Louis. The only one who seemed to
b« happy was (he little one.
Undesirable Immigrants.
An interesting phase of the immigration
question is now attracting attention in
Xew York. ' The number o." Italians who
come to the United States to work during
the pleasant months ar.d return to Italy at
this season of the year to spend their earn
ings has become so large that some of the
finest steamships which now cross the At
lantic are engaged in that trade. The two
German steamship lines are this Fall run
ning their best ships »o Italian ports, in
addition to the regular Mediterranean
Every one of these vessels that has sail
ed this Autumn so far has been unable to
meet the demand for steerage accommoda
tions. The Fa Id a took 900 on Saturday,
but was obliged to leave several han dred
persons behind, who «ill sail in another
vessel to-morrow. On the 17th the Fuerst
Bismark turned away 700 of these Italians
lor lack of room. Judging from the past
experience and the demand for tickets, it
is estimated that over 10,000 Italians will
go back to Italy to spend the Winter or
remain therc.and they will take with them
at least $2,000,000, saved during their stay
on this.
Is this kind of immigration desirable f
These men do not come here to live per
manently. They do not bring their fam
lies. But they are enabled by their meth
od of living to savo enough in a few months
to keep themselves and and their fatnlies
in Italy for a long time. One of these
mgn testified before the Congressional
Commute on Immigration, sitting in Xew
York, as follows:
At home I was a farmer. My pay was
10 i ents a day and meals. Q. Meals for
yourself aloue, or yourself and family t A.
No, the meals were for mo and the family
fed on the 10 cents. Q No lodgings were
included, you had to lodge yourself f A.
I had to bed myself. Q. When you land
ed in this country were you in possession
of any money or property f A. Nothing,
sir. No property. (}. Were you able to
live on this 10 cents a day in Italy and
three mealsf A. Well, it was found to be
enongh by taking care and paying as best
I could.
It cau easily be seen how great a sum
S2OO is ii Italy to such a man. Ho gets
$1.35 here for the same amount of work for
which he was paid 24 cents without meals
in Italy. If he remained here and became
a citizen, that wou'd be quite a different
mattei. But when he comes here to coin
pete with Americans, and then Chinese
like takes himself and his earning to a for
eign country, it is quite evident that some
thing should be done to discourage his re
turn. Immigration of that kind is clearly
undesirable. Philadelphia Press.

The Pittsburg Sensation.
The order of Mayor Gourley closing the
houses of ill repute in the city of Pitts
burg, and the haste in which it was exe
cuted by the Chief ot Police created a sen
sation in that city, last Wedn^sda} - .
On Thursday, tort/ of the keepers of
such places, some of whom have po*n
wealthy, visited his office in City Hall and
wanted to know what h* 1 intended doing
for them He, of course, could do noth
ing. and said s>, though he criticized
Chief Brown's haste in the matter of evict
ing the women, as indecent and inhuman
A number of the women visited Rev. Me-
Crory. and other ministers that day. and a
few of them left the city.
On Friday. Chiel Brown revoked the
order closing the houses, giving as his
reason for so doing the criticisms of Mayor
Gourley: and invited the Mayor to fix the
day for closing.
On Saturday Mayor Gourley reiterated
his order to Chief Brown, and in his letter
to him said:
My order to you of November 30, refer
red to in your communication to yonr Su
perintendent, did not direct you to eject
the inmates of houses of ill-fame; it simply
and only directed you to enforce the law
against all house- of ill repute in the city.
And to prevent any possible misunder
standing I quoted in the communication
mentioned the full text of the law under
which yun were to act, and which consti
tutes the only authority for any action at
all by you or me in the premises.
By referring to the law or ordinance
quoted, and which I askod you to enforce,
by no pretense can you find a scintilla of
authority for summarily ejecting the in
mates of houses of ill repute or of summar
ily closing such houses by driving the in
mates out of their homes upon the streets.
To the end of suppressing such bonses the
law gives your department power to ,-ar
rust every keeper therof and every person
found therein, and to bring all such per
sons betore the police magistrates of said
city for examination and hearing, and
each person found guilty after trial shall
be fined for each offense."
This law onlj convicts after "examina
tion and hearing.'" and does not profess to
invest you or ine with despotic power to
banish into the streets and make homeless
and shelterless even women of ill fame
without "arrest, examination and hear
And even after conviction upon such
' examination and hearing'' it does not im
pose a sentence of ejectment from the
house, but a fine, and, in default of pay
ment, imprisonment.
You cannot fail to see that yonr order of
November 30, as reported to me by yon, to
drive these women out upon the streets
and to close and keep closed the doors of
the houses, is not warranted by the law or
by anything in my communication of that
date directing you "to enforce the law
against all houses of ill repute." Your
sole power in the premises, under the law,
is "to arrest every'keeper and every per
son found in such houses, and take them
before the police magistrates for "examin
ation and hearing." your power under the
law is then exhausted and yonr duty fully
I am convinced that if you confine your
self to the simple discharge of your duty
as a sworn officer, from day to day, under
the power given yon all houses of ill repute
will soon be closed, without any unauthor
ized and illegal order from you to such ef
fect. ;
Inasmuch as these houses of shame have
for five years been allowed by yonr depart
ment to live and flourish, it would produce
cruel and unnecessary suffering to at once
and upon a few hours' notice fill the patrol
wagon with prisoners, many of whom
would certainly be unable to pay their
As you have lod these women to believe
they could conduct their business in this
city with safety, 1 would suggest that jou
serve notice upon them that after a reason
able time, sufficient time to allow them to
arrange for shelter elsewhere, a week if
you please, you will enforce the law by ar
resting, from day to day, inmate or keeper
of snch houses, and leave it to the police
magistrates to inflict the senteuce of the
law upon such as may be found guilty. I
believe that if you pursue this course, the
ouly course within the line of your duty,
and the only course permitted by the law,
these houses will soon, very soon, disap
pear. Should this course uot accomplish
the purpose, I beg to refer you to the act
of assembly approve March 31, 16G9, P. L.
394, which reads as follows:
"If any shall keep and maintain bawdy
hon?o, etc., or shall knowingly let or de
mise a house, or part therenf to be so kept,
he or she shall be guilty of a disdeineauor.
aud on conviettion be sentencou to pay a
line not exceeding SI,OOO, and to undergo
an imprisonment not exceeding two years.
The correspondence between the Mayor
and the Chief of Police was the principal
topic of conversation about City Hall, that
day. ,

The death of our friend was a peculiarly
sad one, he being a yonng man of strong
constitution and in the prime of life, and
called so early to leave the joy* of life: but
we trust it was a glorious exchange. lie
was a loving husband, a kind father, a
good neighbor, and a strictly honest man
in all his dealings with his fellow men. Hi.-
disease was typhoid fever froin which he
suffered greatly but he bore all his suffer

to trust his all to his blesssed Savior. lie
leaves a wife and eight children, an aged
mother, brothers and sisters to lament hi>
death. His family have the sympathy of
the whole community in their sad bereave

churchyard at St. Johns, there to await
the resurrection oftho just. when the,dead
in Christ shall rise first.
