Xife was fading from cheek and brow, And the mother's heart was hopeless now. Not one sound in the chamber of death was heard save the maiden's laboring breath; Ho word of murmur the mother spake; Silent and calm are the hearts that break. Morning passed and the noon so still Bathed in warm loveliness wood and hill. Slumbrous airs from the west went by. And the mother watched for her child to die Afternoon came and the maiden lay Lifeless and soulless a mold of clay! Bain came down as from eyes that wept: "Watching was over the maiden 6lept.

An Account of Some of Peunsylraaia's Queer Sects. The River Brethren of Pennsylvania closely resemble the old Dunkards, the Amisn and the Seventh Day Baptists. These plain and simple folks are scat tered all over Eastern Pennsylvania. They recently held their annual love feast in Lebanon County, near Hum- melstown. They had an ox roast, pub lic feet washing:, a praise meeting, and a general reunion. About six hundred persons were present. To the stranger these various Tenn sylvania German sects all look alike, but upon close inquiry their beliefs, forms of worship, habits and customs are found to be different. One sect baptizes by plunging the convert three times into the water forward; another sect plunges its converts into the water backward. One uses no buttons on garments; another uses buttons. The no-button people use hooks and eyes only. The dress of one of these farm ers is usually a very broad-brimmed black wool hat, stiff and strong; a dark brown cutaway coat, with a small ...
