THE CHRONICLE. .s COIFAX, - . - IA)UISIANA. sl CHRIZSTMAS EVE. How lovely must have been the nlght When, from the silent sky, Pure angel-voices sang aloud, "Glory to God on high I" Bright Christma stars their radiance shed here weary shepherds lay, And, starting from their dreams, they heard, b "To you ia born this day "A Itavior, who is Christ the Lord 1" Thus to a world of shame, At midonight, centuries ago, . The blessed messagre came. The shepherds listened eagerly, Half-hopeful, half-afraid; Then followed where the brightest star A gleaming pathway made. It shone before them through the night, A glowing, steadfast ray. t That cheered their hearts, and guided them To where the "young child" lay. In a manger slept the holy child, Within a statie dim; t For in the homes of Bethlehem Therewas "nuruom" for Him! But high in heaven that blessed night, Thus did the angels slog: "r' Ga tidings of great Joy to you Good will and peace we bring!' And down through all the ages, From that la...

A Kan Who Can Uatiage Every Joint ji an His Body. a - a The announcement that Mr. Charles r H. Warren, the celebrated contortion- p ist, would give an exhibition before the r students at the Erie-Street Medical Col- o lege yesterday morning found a Herald a reporter in the amphitheater at the ap- f pointed hour. The affair was certainly tl a marvelous exhibition of muscular ac- % tivity and change. Mr. Warren is a L surgical, physiological and anatomical ' phenomenon. The display which he a made of dislocations and displacements ti of internal organs suggested continual- h ly the question, is he humanp Mr. Warren is, in his line, undoubt- o edly, the greatest wonder ever brought a before the medical profession. The fact c that Dr. Hamilton has devoted several s pages to his case in his "' New Surgery" 1l is ample guarantee that his contortions are really phenomenal and worthy the b consideration of medical science. Con- a corning him, Dr. Hamilton says: "I think it may be safely sai...

TIIHE CIIROUNICLE. COLFAX, - - - LOUISIANA. THE NE W-YEAR'S WELCOME. Ring, bells, ring! for the King is here: Iting, bells, ring! for the glad New Year. He4 mounts his throne with a smiling face, Hils sceptre lifts with nlajestiegrase. Jting for the joy his advent brings; cling for the happy songs he sinrs: iting for the promises sweet and true With which we gladden our hearts anew. The new-born Year Is a happy follow, His voice is sweet, and low, and mellow: With the tChristmas holly his head is crowned, With the C(hrtitmas blessings we'll wrap him round. Then ring, bells, ring! for the joyous day The Past lies silent, the Present in gay; long out your merriest, cheer after cheer, To welcome the birth of the Happy New ear! -Mary D. Brine.

Warming and Ventilating. lHardly any subject is so much worth considering at this season of the year as how to warm and ventilate out homes in the cold and blustering days of win ter. We may not refer to furnaces, be cause houses in rural districts are rarely warmed by themrn. We wish to limit our words to small dwellings. A century ago a blazing fire composed of logs four feet long or more, was the common way of generating heat for making families comfortable. It had much to recom mend it. Even now that so many years have passed, no other way of generating heat is so social and delightful as a fire place containing blazing wood,. It is not only beautiful and cheering but healthy. Some of our readers may have often seen upon our prairies log cabins, having an open tire on one side and the only door upon the other. This only door was generous in size and was so large and loose that the outer air could easily rush into the humble dwelling, feed the flames and purify the air with in. T...

Savage Warfrae In Breeya. One day last week a Joralemon Street man arrived from Carlisle, Penn., with a young Indian squaw whom he had taken from school there and whom he proposed to train for an upper servant. The news of the arrival flew like wild fire, and the small boys of the neighbor hood began preparations for the camn paign. They slept on the floor nights, wrapped in blankets, to inure themselves to the fatigue and hardships of an active expedition, and ate hard tack and such spoiled meat as they could find, that they might prove trained soldiers when hoe tilities opened. Friday night was fixed for the attack. Twenty veteran youngsters who had read of a score of bloody Indian battles armed themselves with broom handles and flocked to the fray. "Be cautions, men, !"' whispered DIoon Murphy, who had been elected Geera a "The enemy is now at prayer meetiag.
