convened at the Emory M. E. Church,
Penn avenue, East End, Wednesday morn
ing at 9 o'clock.
The session commerced with a hymn,
which was followed by a prayer by Dr.
Cox, a superannuated preacher. Another
hymn was followed by an address by
Bishop Cyrus D. Ross, D. D., who is
known as one of the ablest men in the
Methodist Episcopal Church. lie was
bom in Kingston, N. Y., January 17,
1884. In early life he was converted, and
devoted himself heartily to the services
of Christ, resulting in declaring himself
a candidate for the ministry. He entered
the Wesleyan University, from which he
graduated in 1854. He was afterwards
for three years principal of America
Seminary, and entered the New
York Conference in 1857. In 1859
he was transferred to the East
Conference of New York, and given
charge of the Fleet Street Church in
Brooklyn. He filled the leading pulpits
in Brooklyn and New York for mauy
years, and in 1875 was unanimously
v . elected to the Presidency of Wesleyan
University, which position he held until
his election as Bishop, which position ho
, still holds.
The Bishop's remarks were on the
progress and history of the past nine
years in the Pittsburgh Conference. The
Rev. W. B. Watklns, last year's Secre

roll, 175 members being present. Charles
M. Miller, of the Bengal Conference; E. E.

A motion was made and carried that
the officers for the ensuing year at once

Treasurers, Rev. George Holmes, ot Alle
gheny ; Rev. A. Bash, of McKecspou;
Rev. J. A. Valentine, Pittsburgh, and
Rev. H. A Omran, Washington, Pa.
At this point quite a lengthy discus
sion arose among the delegates over the
provision that appears in paragraph 82,
sections 1 and 2, in the church discipline,
some wanted the Conference to adopt it
and others were opposed. The section
" Each annual Conference shall appoint
a Conference Treasurer, who shall re
ceive and account for all moneys received
for the church and benevolences aud
such other moneys as Conference may

that each preacher in charge duly receive
a blank ' Treasurer's Financial Report,'

read and adopted. Rev. Dr. Fulton was
substituted in the place of Rev. 51 r.
Holmes, and L. R. Jones in place of 51 r.
Storer, on the Committee on Temperance,
both having resigned during the year.
The Rev. Mr. Jones then read a re
port on the Washington district in which
he stated that while the rules had not
been literally carried out, the financial
. part had been. This was followed by re
ports from other districts, after which the

Yidal, the blind sculptor, is one of the
wonders of the French capital. Ho has
been blind since l : trimly-first year.
We can qiffle easily understand how a
blind farmer would, colli v. to the ground
with the plough, spade and hoe. He
would feel around tin* tender plnnb and
gently loosen the 'in i . their roots, or
how the blind Bin; i ' : (Ala.) miner
tells, with the sense of touch alone, the
direction and to w hat depth to drill his
holes beloro putting in ' blast, but the
work of Vidal stinv's :t in hold relief,
unique, wonderful .vol incomparable. To
be a sculptor it is generally suppood that
one must have the " mechanic's eye" and
the artist's taste and perspicuity. The
latter faculties Yidal I s to an oxcep"

believes, than If t'e furine - were not U> t

From 1855 to 1875 Yi.lt. 1 received more
medals than any oilier exhibitor of works
in the Paris art exhibition.'. slany of his
works, made in the solitude of his per
petual midnight, are now on the shelves
at the great Exposition, where the blind
wonder contends in friendly rivalry with
his loss unfortunate brother artists. He
never complains, is always genial and
festive when among his friends, who al
ways speak of aud to him as though ho
could see, and well may they do so, for
he is one of the best art critics in all

Mr. "Herresholl., the blind Presideut of
the Ilerroshoff Manufacturing Company,
of Bristol, R. 1., seems as much out of
his element in his present capacity as the

Government has recognized him as being
one of the greatest inventors of the

steam launches now used by this and all
tliecivi'ized governments on the globe,
are the inventions of this sightless genius!
His steam launches have made the high,

A Lady Awaened by tho Cries of a Little

Mrs. George Krous9, who resides at 489
Ninth avenue, was awakened Monday
morning about 4:30 o'clock, by the pitiful
cries of a baby that had been placed on
the steps of her dwelling sometime during
tho night. She went down and took it
in and found it to be a baby girl a few
weeks old, wrapped in a blanket and en
cased in a gossamer coat, and was, of
course, nearly chilled to death in the cold
morning air. The little waif was kindly
washed, dressed and fed, and during the
day the Mayor was notified of it, and 51 rs.
Young, of the almshouse, was telephoned
to come and take charge of it. On her
arrivnl she recognized the baby as be
longing to a girl who had been at the
poor house and had taken it away a few
days ago, and nothing had been seen of
her since. Mrs. Young took the poor
little forsaken child back with her to the
almshouse, and thus far the present ends

Tlit Only Woman Circuit Preacher. |
From the Washington Slur.
To the Lower Wabash Annual Confer
ence of Unib d Biv.'./eu in Christ, whoso
thirty-second session closed the other day,
belougs the honor of giving to the church
its first lady circuit rider in Miss Alva
Button, of Greenup, 111. The act author
izing the innovation was passed by the
session of the General Conference held
last May. Only a few days ago Miss Ella
Mishwatiger, a graduate of the theologi
cal seminary, Dayton, Ohio, was or
dained as an elder at the ses ion of the
Central Illiuols COl ferer.ee, being the lirst
woman ordained. At the same Confer
ence Mrs. Elliot win also admi'tcd. Later
Mrs. Bell, wife of an Itinerant preacher,
was admitted to Conference. None of
these were assigned to fields of labor.
Miss Button is a young lady of more
than average attainments, common sense, ,
and pluck, and it 1:1 ly be added that she
possesses beauty, 1 ing tall and prepos
sessing in appcaraive. tslie is a native of
Chicago. She lea: Ito set type in the
office of an Illinois newspaper when sev
' entcen years old, and afterward became a
' successful school teacher. When her call
' to the ministry came she was a member
® of the Method i£ Episcopal Church, but
- joinad the United Brethren, owing to
' the similarity of their doctrine, and in
5 order to secure admission to Conference.
' " She may do all right," said one of the
1 older preachers, " until it comes to iin
* mersing some big six-footer in a creek ;
' then she will bo left."

' bases, and a die surmounted by four
' beautiful columns, supporting a cap in
1 Corinthian style, surmounting this cap is
a beautiful cross, which is certainly fine,

THE UHE OLD STORY.
**• ERF AmtMe Yfeemsrlvrn "With a Gun,
and Mow AM or Them Ha. a Uullel In
Wednesday, just at noon, Bt.Augustine
In Clearfield township, was theisceue of n
shooting accident that may result In the
death of Benjamin, tho twelve-year-oid
son of Richard Delozier,; of tho above
named place. Benjamin had spent the
forenoon In helping a neighbor, Andrew
Carl, with his threshing. A little before
noon the work was finished, and the boy
started for home. On his way he passed
the hotel kept by John A. Wallace. 51 r.
Wallace's son, John, who is about four- i
teen years of age, was fixing up an old i
gun, and young Delozier became so inter-'
ested that he stopped to see how well the ;
gun would shoot when John was done i
fixing it. When young Wallace was j
ready he pluced a cartridge, a!
twenty-two calibre shot, in the gun'
and tried two or three times unsuceess- j
fully to discharge the weapon. He then i
sportively aimed the gun at Delozier,
when it discharged the ball, hitting the J
latter in the thigh. The bull passed
through the flesh in front of tho thigh,
and lodged near the groin, producing a
dangerous if not fatal wourd. Dr. Nou
nan, of Chest Springs, was summoned in
haste, but was unable to locate the ball.
Deloizer fainted several times and lost
considerable blood, and at this writing
it cannot be told whether he will re
cover or not.
A pugnacious encounter was witnessed
Monday on Bedford street between a
very handsome lady, whose diminutive
form denoted anything but strength, but
whose physignomy portrayed courage,
will power and a very billicose disposi
tion. Iler antagonist was a mean, sneak
ing, despised looking subject, whose proj
jonitors, from time immemorial, have
grown fat on the good things of others.
We could not learn the cause of the alter
cation, nor did we see the first beginning
of the fight; but there is no doubt that he
was following the examples of his ances
tors, intruding on the lady's hos
pitality, until forbearance ceasing
to be a virtue, he was bade
to quit the house. On his refusing to d>
so the young lady's ire became aroused
She seized a small sized two-handed
cudgel, and, with deliberate aim and
" malice aforethought," she struck the
rodent above the left eye, knocking him
senseless. He gathered himself up anil
Inade an honest effort to get out, which
was accelerated by anothei blow on the
back of the neck. He gained the street,
followed closely by the young lady, who
dealt him another blow nbove tho right
temple, killing him instantly, when an oi l
Thomas cat passing by seized the rat au.i
carried him away.
Never Take a Lady's Arm.
New York Sun.
" The question is often put to n.o, '
said a lady, whose oninion in the matte"
of etiquette is wholly competent,
" whether it is ever permissible to take a
lady's arm in acting as an (scort on a
promenade." Unhesitatingly and per
emptorily, no. After nightfall, nor I
daylight, nor at any other time. An in
valid may lean upon a young woman'-
arm ; a grandfather, if he is infirm, ma;
avail himself of a similar support, and a
Broadway policeman seems to have a
quired the right to propel his charge i •
petticoats across the thoroughfare by a
grasp upon the arm, but these are tie
only persons so privileged. For an ac
quaintance, a friend, or one who aspires
to a still nearer place, to take the arm of
a young woman when walking with her
on a public highway is inexcusable. You
may be sure that nothing will so quickly
offend. To see a youog woman puohed
along, a little in front of her escort, by
his clutch upon her arm, reverses all prc
concieyed ideas of gallautry. Offer
her your arm, young man, every time,
and do not commit the offense of taking
