One bitter night early in February there sat in the hardly furnished sitting-room a young priest.

2 HELIGOLAND. A Sketch of Hie Island Jnst Ceded to Germany. Some of the Picturesque Views From the Bock in the Norih Sea— The Customs and the People of the Island. ' • The following Interesting account of Heligoland, the island in the North Sea • which was formally turned over to theGer^ ' man authorities last Saturday, is from a re cent issue of the Edinburgh Scotsman: The island, or rather the main island, of Heligoland is imposing and picturesque as you approach it in the German steamer from the Elbe. The first view is one, in truth, to dwell in the imagination. Lofty crags of a beautiful pinkish color catch the eye with dignity, and the summits are broken up with what seem to be towers and pinnacles of a city. As you get closer it is perceived that about half or a quarter of a mile f.rom the craggy main island is a small, low-lying, sandy island, on which are the usual array of bathing - coaches and the inevitable restaurationen. In the space between the two islands the steamer ...

Those, however, who are on duty in the Byron Jackson Foundry, at Sixth nnd Bluxome streets, thought they would have a little ex:itement last evening between 7 and § o'clock. The discharge of a pistol five or six times at short intervals was heard, and for time no one could guess ■where the reports came from. Finally it was discovered that the non union men inside the foundry were having a pistol practice, occasionally a bullet would come through a window or crack somewhere and go whizzing around the neighborhood. At first the officers thought they would go in and investigate, but as the Shooting bad ceased before they arrived en the scene they...
