The children of two families living on
Chestnut street, concluded to hold church
the other day. The meeting was called to
order, and the oldest girl who attends Dr. j
T.'s church, repeated some of her pastor's re- j
marks, concluding with what she had heard I
him say on a recent occasion when the fur
naces were out of order, " It is very cold, and
I will not detain you any longer." Then little
. FANNIE, who attends Rev. Mr B.'s services,
was asked to tell something she had hoard !
him say. The little Miss was unable io recall
anything she had heard from her pastors lip*,
but said she could repeat what the .Supcriu- |
tendent of the Sunday School said to the i
scholars. " What is it," said her cousin.
" Children, get your pennies ready." And I

There is a fabled bird—Caradrion,
That Hies, on wings of healing, from the sun.
Takes to itself the poison of disease
With tlie same kiss that gives the sufferer
Back to the sun she turns her liolv flight.
There purified in the eternal light.
So Sympathy may kiss the lips of grief.
Drawing its thorn and giving blest relief.
And boar the wearing sorrow to the skies,
At once the answer and the sacrifice.

X2T IMPORTANT TO SCHOOL DIREC
TORS AND TAX PAYERS—The fol
lowing decision of the Superintendent of
Public Instruction is of grout importance to
tax-payers as well as directors, as violation j
of the law upon the subject will deprive di -
tricts of the State appropriation, and subject j
Directors to severe penalties:
DEPARTMENT OK PUB. INS.. I
Ilarrisburg. Pa., Dec. 1, J87!). j
There is but one time in the year when di
rectors can adopt a new series of text books
for the schools under their charge, or change
old ones, and that is between the time of
electing teachers and the opening of the
schools. Section 23, Act of May 1.1854. says:
" That immediately after the annual election
of teachers in each school district of the state,
and before the o, filing of the schools for tin 4
j ensuing term, tin ? shall be a meeting of the
directors or controllers and teachers of each
j district; at which meeting the directors or
j controllers shall decide upon a series of school
books, in the different branches to be taught
during the ensuing school year; which books,
and no other, shall be used in the schools of
the district during said period."
Such is the law, with this exception, that
books cannot now be changed more frequent
ly than once in three years.
