THE TIMES NEW BL00MFIEL1), PA., APK1L. 27, 1880.
Sermons Heard by Telephone.
On Saturday last a telephone was placed
in Plymouth Church, (he transmitters be
ing nt the back of the Mount of 01 i yen
rending desk, and connected with the resi
dence of Mr. Alfred E. Poach, of Now
York, a brother of Moses S. Beach, and
with the house of Mr. Henry Pope at Eliz
abeth, N. .T. Yesterday morning, before
the oongtegtitlon assembled, a gontletnan
tried the Instrument, saying to Elisabeth :
" I am standing six feet from the trans
mitter, cau you hear me ?" and the reply
came back, "We hear you distlncly,"
With (lie residence of Mr. Beach in this
city equally satisfactory communication was
assured, aud Mr. Bench enjoyed the ser
mon by wire. Mr. Weld, the sexton of
the Church, shook his bead gravely when
speaking of the introduction of the tele
phone. "Iam afraid," said he, "that
this wilt be the end of our prosperity asa
church, for who will pay fOOO for a pew
when he can have a telephone and listen to
Mr. Beecher in his own parlor ?"
The experiment in the morning was
reasonably satisfactory. The line from
Mr. Beecher's church to the central office
in Montague street, Brooklyn, was strung
.at the suggestion and expenses of Mr.
Beach for the purpose of the experiment.
.At. Mr. Beach's end of the line five re
ceivers woro attached to tho wire. Mr.
Beach's line from, the central office to his
house was not in perfect order and so Mr.
Beecher's words came over the confused
wires with tho sighing of winds and occa
sional noises like sharpening a saw. When
Mr. Beecher thumped his desk (under
which the transmitters were secured) a
-sudden croaking as of a frog sounded ' over
the line. However, with occasional inter
i'uptions of ono kind and another, a great
.part of the morning's sermon was distinct
ly heard at Mr. Beach's house. The
-singing by the large choir and the playing
of the organ wore distinctly heard.

Bound to Win.
l)on in Chester county they have a
queer way of doing many things, and
'among those queer things is the auctioning
ff the repairs of the township roads.
The other day the publio roads iu East
Bradford township were sold for three
years, and are to be kept in perfect order
during that time. Three years ago the en
tire publio roads of the township brought
95,570, but on Monday about $3,350 was
realized, or a gain over the last sale of 2,
500. It appears John M. Hildeburn and
Aaron Davis were competitors for a certain
piece of road, which at the sale three years
ago brought $70. They commenced bid
ding at this contract at the above figure,
and gradually came down to nothing, when
Mr. Davis said he would give one cent for
the privilege of mending and keeping it
in repair for for the next three years.
This stirred up Mr. Ilildeburn's mettle,
and he said that be would give a dollar,
and so the contestents crossed each other
alternately until the contract was knocked
off to Mr. Hildeburn for the sum of $9.
The laugh comes in just here, inasmuch as
the lucky purohaser will be compelled to
keep the road in good repair for the next
three years and pay $3 a year for the priv
ilege of doing so, and also pay his share
of road taxes in the bargain. This mode
of doing business is a novel one and the
first of the kind on record ; but what's the
use, mettle will tell.
A Strange Suicide
Stephen Pillsbury, aged thirty, was
found almost decapitated yesterday in his
father's barn, at Chelsea, Mass. The in
strument of death was a perfootly executed
guillotine, which the ingenious suicide had
probably spent a month in manufacturing.
The machine consisted of two perpendicu
lar pieces of the joist about two feet apart
and reaching from the floor to tho roof of
the barn. About six feet from the floor
had been adjusted in a piece of wood a
large, sharp axe, so that it moved up aud
down in a groove. This axe was held in
its place by a waler-pot filled with water,
attached to a lever, which in turn was
made to support the axe. A hole had been
made in the water-pot, so that when suffi
cient water had leaked from it to over
come tho leverage above the axe would fall.
When all arrangements had been made the
young man got upon his knees, with ether
to bis month, and awa'.tod death.
t33 Near Lam pases, Texas, a farmer
named Reuben Connet was sitting with
his family around a fire, at 0 o'clock at
night, when lightning struck a tall tree
near the rcof of the bouse, ran down the
chimney, aud descended into the group,
tearing everything to pieces. George, a boy
of fouiteen, was struck on the temple and
instantly killed, the lightning lacerating
bis foot aud tearing his shoes and clothes
to shreds. The entire current struck An
ns, a little girl, on the top of the head,
and passed down through her body, but
she was uot killed. The father and the
youngest daughter were knocked senseless,
but both recovered. Mrs. Connot, who
had been out visiting, came in and found
the whole family spread out on the floor.

From Iter. N. F. Granger,
Presiding Elder ot the St. Albans District.
St. Albans, Vt., Jan. 29th, IS80.
DR. J. It. KENDALL & CO., dents: In reply
to your letter I will say that my experience wltn
Kendall's Bpavin Cure has been vory satisfactory
Indeed. Three or four years sgo I procured a bot.
tie ot your agent, and with it, cured a horse ot
lameness caused by Spavin. Last season my
horse became very lame and I turned him out for
a few weeks when he became better, but when I
put him on the road he grew worse, w hen I dis
covered that a ring-bone was forming. 1 procured
a bottle of Kendall's Swvln Cure, and with less
than a bottle cured him so that he is not lame,
ueither can the bunch be found.

Stoughton, Mass., March 16th, 188P.
B. J. Kendall & Co., Gents: In justice to you
and myself, I think 1 ought to let you know that I
hare removed TWO BONE SPAVINS with Ken
dall's Spavin Cure," one very largo one: don't
know how long the Spavin had been there. I
haveowuedthehorseeight months. It took me
four months to take the largo one off, and two
months for the small one. 1 liave used 10 bottles.
The horse Is entirely well, not at all stlif , and no
bunch to be seen or telr. This Is a wonderful
medicine. It Is a new thing here, but if it does
for all what It has done for me its sale will be very
great. Kespectlully yours,
, CHAM. E.PARKER.

Leading Principles or the AMERICAN BOOK EXCHANGE ;
I. Publish only books of real value.
II. Work upon the basis of present cat of making books, about one h;f what It was a few
III. hell to buyers direct, and save them the 50 or 60 per cent commission commonly allowed
IV. The cost of books when made 10,000 at a time is but a fraction ot the cost when made 500 at
a time adopt the low price and sell the large quantity.
V. Use good type, paper, etc., do careful printing, and strong, neat binding, but avoid all
"padding," fat and htuvllj leaded type, spongy paper and gaudy binding, which are so commonly
resorted to to make books appear large aud hue, aud which add greatly to their cost, but do not
add to their value.
