For Our Church Paper. Confirmation. In the bend of the Catawba river, there is a congregation of Lutherans, and meet to worship in Bethel church. For a longtime it was called Piny Grove. This was the name given to the public school-house at that place. This was for a long time a preaching point. In the period of my recollection, the following ministers preached there: C. G. Reitzel, C. Moretz, H. Goodman, M. J. Stirewalt. It was during the late war, Brother M. J. S. served that people. During his term a little incideut occurred which he took great delight in telling, aud which afforded him a great amount of mirthfulness. I refer you to him for the explanation. Brother M. J., tho' an able preacher, enjoys sport, and often iu our younger days, did I hear him say: "A little fun, now und then, Is relished by the best of men." Rev. 11. Goodman was a man well remembered by all of our older members, almost in all our churches, in N. C., S. C., and Va. He lived to a good old age, and died i...

CHURCH PAPER ESTABLISHED 1873. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XVII. For Our Church Paper. Luther in Conflict with Indulgence. BY J. G. M. "Indulgence" was originally nothing more than a remission of penalties inflicted upon transgressors against the rules and ordinances of the church, but it gradually degenerated into pardon of all sin, and even to deliverance from the pains of purgatory. Tetzel, the Indulgence peddler, with his tickets in his hand, exclaimed iu the market places, "Do you not hear the shrieks of your deceased parents, children, and relatives in the caverns of purgatory ? You leave tlieiu suffering in the flames when you could buy Indulgence for them ! I remit to you all your sins against the church and all the horrible penalties of purgatory, and restore you to all your original purity, so that the gates of paradise will stand open for you when you die." Luther was not the first man who rose up against this iniquitous traffic, but as early as 1272, Ber...

For Our Church Paper. Giving.—No. 2. But duty not unfrequently becomes a joyous privilege when esteemed as such. It certainly is a high privilege for any one to be permitted or requested to aid a loved one or help an honored cause. God is foremost in every Christian heart, his cause upmost of all that is honored. We know of no duty freighted with half the pleasant privileges as is duty to him who freely gives us all things. Me thinks that Abel (Gen. iv; 4) appreciated it a privilege, when he brought an offering unto the Lord, of the firstlings (the best) of his flocks. Looking at Christ, a promised sacrifice in his stead, the sacrifice all sufficient to atone fjpr his own sins, he esteems it a very high privilege to return to God that which the natural sin-possessed man would have appropriated to his own use. It was this high yet humble appreciation of God, that rendered Abel and his offering acceptable to the Lord. Not so however with Cain when he brought of the fruit of the ground...

A FINANCIAL MYSTERY. How ApplnM mul Cent* anil an Old Fruit Wuuinu (tot Mixed. There is an apple woman onTremont street who has each ilay a consignment of apples to sell, and makes a point of getting rid of them, if possible, every day. She does not like to have stock left on her hands, regarding "clearingout sales" as demoralizing to trade. The other morning her boy Mickey and his chum Patsey were hanging around her stand, and bothered her so much that she resolved to put them to some use. So she fitted out each of them with a basket, and to her smart boy Mickey she gave thirty of tho sixty apples, and said: "Sell thim for mo, ivery wan o' thim, and sell 'oin two for a cint. " So Mickey started out with his thirty apples. Then she called Patsey, his chum, in whose honesty she had more confidence than she had in his business abilities, and gave him tho other thirty apples. "Sell thim for me," she said to Patsey, "and sell 'em three for a cint." Patsey sallied forth with tho apples a...

CHURCH PAPER. ESTABLISHED 1873. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XVII. LITTLE FOXES. It was such a little thingOne slight twist of crimson string ; But 'was stealing all the same ; And the child who took it knew Tt&t she told what was not true, JuAt to screen herself from blame, First a theft, then a lieBoth recorded up 011 high. It was just a little slip, Just a taste upon the lip : But it left a longing there; Then the measure larger grew, And the habit strengthened, too, Till it would no curbing bear; Ho the demon drink decoys, Soul and body both destroys. It was but one little word, Softly spoken, scarcely heard, Uttered by a single breath, But it dared to take in vain God's most high and holy name. So provoking wrath and death ; Soon the lips once fresh and failOpened hut to curse and swear. It was but one little blow, Passion's sudden overflow, Scarcely heeded in its fall? But, once loosed, the fiery soul Would no longer brook control : Laws it spurned,...

For Our Church Pap#. Our Monroe Mission. A few weeks ago we asked the pastors of the N. C. Conference of the Tenn. Synod to endeavor to secure ten cents from each communicant member for our work iu Monroe and Yicinity. This certainly seems a small sum to ask for; and yet our pastors are slow to report whether or not they will make an earnest effort to secure this amount. Since the appeal for this work was written, I visited Monroe, and spent a few days there during the last week in April. I preached for our people, and was much gratified by the interest I find there in the work of our church. While there I visited every family in connection with our church, and the chief topic of conversation everywhere was the outlook and prospects for a Lutheran Church in the place. A beautiful lot—a most eligible site for a church—has already been secured, and will be donated for this purpose by one of our leading men of that place as soon as the work of building is undertaken. One of our female ...

"STRETCH IT A LITTLE." Trudging along the slippery street Two childish figures, with nehing feet, And hands benumbed by the biting cold, Were rudely jostled by young and old. Hurrying homeward at close of day Over the city's broad highway. Nobody noticed or seemed to care For the little ragged shivering pair; Nobody saw how close they crept Into the ■warmth of ench gas jet, Which flung abroad its mellowy light From the gay shop-windows in the night. " Come under my ctfat," said little Nell, As tears ran down Joe's cheeks and fell ' >11 her own thin lingers, stiff and cold. "'Taint very big, but 1 guess'twill hold Both you and me, if I only try To stretch it a little. .So now don't cry." The garment was small, und tattered, and thin, lint Joe was lovingly folded in Close to the heart of Nell, who knew That stretching the coat for the needs of two Would double the warmth, and halve the pain Of the cutting wind and icy rain. " Stretch it a little," O girls and boys. In homes...

CHURCH PAPER. ESTABLISHED 1873. HENKBL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XVII. For Our Church Paper. What He Thought of Things. BY .T. ft. M. Luther's crisp, terse, sententious utterances, oil all subjects, furnish good reading to men of taste. They are like sharp, quick, telling blows which dreadfully annoy an adversary, and bis bands were not covered with thick, stuffed gloves. His knocks hurt, and many an opponent left the ring howling with pain, and begging for mercy. He could be tender as a mother washing her wayword boy, and then again he could thunder so as to shake the earth around him. He could be mild and sympathetic, as well as witty, sarcastic, and severe. He has fully expressed himself on all the subjects which agitated the church iu his day, and it is his utterances on some of them that I intend to quote for the reading of your patrons. Some of these subjects are of no special interest to us Protestants now, but as intelligent seekers after knowledge we should lear...

AN ETHNICAL PROBLEM. Hpccul.itioiifl Concerning tin* Future R»c# of tlie West Indie*. Thon all the long succession of Impressions received fantastic, sensuous, exotic, unfamiliar —begin to group, to blend, to form homogeneous results, ideas, beliefs. Strongest among these Is the conviction that the white race is disappearing from these islands, acquired and hold so long, at so vast a cost of blood and treasure. Reasons almost beyond enumerations ha ve been advanced —economical, climatic, ethnical, political—all of which contain truth, yet no single one of which can wholly explain the fact. Already the white West Indian populations aro diminishing at a rate that almost staggers credibility. In the island paradise of Martinique iu 1818 there were 25,000 whites; now, against 160,000 blacks and half-breeds, there are less than 8,000 crcolcs left to maintain the ethnic struggle, and the number of the latter is annually growing less. Many of the British islands have been almost deserted b...

This brother would have been enrolled as a full member, but ho had not been transferred to the Virginia Synod, although serving a pastorate within its bounds; hence, was not entitled to full membership.

TWILIGHT FANCIES. Twilight softly closes round me, Dusky shadows fill the room, Well known objects g'ide before me, Weirdly in the gathering gloom; And with dreamy eyes I'm watching Lingering daylight disappear, While the busy thoughts are weaving Curious fancies, quaint and queer. First I build myself a castle, Where I rule in queenly state, Docked with oriental splendors, Alt my fancy could create; Crimson curtains shade the windows, Softly letting in the light ; Heavenly strains of sweetest music Fill the senses with delight. < 'Imndclicrs of gold and silver, Hanging from the frescoed ceil, .Marble dreams of olden sculptors Half disclose and half revcjil; Tiny jets of perfumed water Fall from antique vases rare, Pillars carved from Parian marble Rear their stately columns there.

What seems ro, thro' the variant earth, Is from a want of ken. The golden sun, for me, doth shine, And myriad stars arise; And fleecy clouds in flocks combine, On meadows of the skies. The ocean chafes with anger white, Or loves the peaceful docks; And winds, as zephyrs fly, or smite The earth until it rocks. The mountains lift their hooded heads Amid the starry skies; And forests rear the water sheds Beneath their brimming eyes. For me the flowers shed perfume, And robe in soft attire; • And bubbling brooklets sweetly boom, To sounds of sylvan lyre. The birds awake the dewy morn, And shell with songs my room; And bees frequent with mellow horn The fragrant clover bloom. And heaven, still, more rich than earth, Adds all its bounteous store— And sweet humanities, whose worth We value more...
