i f^v ^fl*ssp$sp8 THE PARSON'S CORNER. A PARSON EDITOR. XMAS.Christmas comes again to stir our noblest impulses to prompt us to do the most generous things, and to think the kindest thoughts. There is something in the very air of Christmas time that almost compels the miser to be generous, the hard heart to feel kindly, the carelessly selfish to become thougthful and considerate for those about them. The air seems to bring some thing of the angels music to us and "peace on earth, and good will to men," floats to us on the Christ mas breeze. Let us see how much of tliib Christmas "good will" we can keep through the year. A BABY ORG VN.Not the kind that 'makes music" in season and out of season, but a Mason & Hamlin was delivered at the Con gregational parsonage last Tuesday morning, for the use of the pastor and hiss people in conducting meetings in school houses, lumber camps., or anywhere that open dooi are found, and for use at bocials, picnicis, &c.

*f^w TS It SP9* KWtV^f BEVOLUTIONARY GIRLS. When the revolution broke out the Van Alstines, with numerous other families, inhabited the lovely Mohawk valley. A fairer landscape did not ex ist, but despite its beauty it soon bo came the theater of stirring and bloody scenes. It was the battle ground where the Indian waged relentless warfare on the patriot settler, and every rod of it was trodden by the wily and sanguinary foe. The people who then dwelt in this region were a mixture of hardy ftew Englauders and of Dutch, the Van Alstines be longing to the latter race but all were equally brave, the women vying with the men in deeds of heroism and devotion. Mrs. Van Alstine, the mother, had passed through some of the most thrilling scenes of colonial history, and, dwelling on the New York frontier in the midst of ivage alarms, she had reared a family of fifteen and lived to count almost 100 years of life. Her oldest daughter, Betty, was a child who inherited her mother's bravery and de...

A Murderer's Confession. BY B. L. FARJEON. Yes, I will make my confession. The chaplain will think that I do it be cause of his exhorations. Let him think so. Try as hard as he likes, he can't make me believe that I can earn heaven or hell by simply writing a few words on a sheet of paper. "What I am going to do is for my own sake. To keep it any longer to myself will drive me mad, and I want to keep my reason to the lastif I can. The secret presses upon me like red hot bands of steel. I must burst them asunder. Thefireof silence and thesmiles. anguish of it is more than I can bear it is eating into my heart. I must, I must confess! They did not bring me a steel pen, with which I could have opened a vein in the middle of the night, but a soft quill, quite unless for the pur pose of self destruction. But even were the means within my reach, and I could screw my courage to the sticking point (I heard that in a play once, and the actress was speak ing of murder), even then I doubt whet...

A.*U JOSHUA'S SIEGE. 'Dr. Talmage Describes Some of the Victories of the Great Hebrew Warrior. The Sun Stood Still While he Defeated His Enemies and Captured Five Kings. BROOKLYN,Spoclal.Dr. Talmnge preached the following sermon in the Academv of Music,. His text was Joshua ii., 5: "And when all these kings were met together, they came and pitched together, at the waters ofMerom to fight against Israel." We are encamped to-night in Palestine by the waters of Merom. In this neighborhood Joshua fought his last great battle. The nations had banded themselves together, to crush this Joshua, but along the banks of these waters Joshua left their carcasses. Indeed it is time that we more minutely examine this Joshua of whom we have in these discourses caught only a momentary glimpse, although he crossed and recrossed Palestine, and next to Jesus is the most stirring and mighty character whose foot ever touched the Holy Land. Moses was dead. A beautiful tradition sa^s the Lord kissed hun, a...

Soon afterward, postal ser vice was demandgd, and when the in spector came to investigate, he found that old Bixby, an "early settler,'1 was the only man who owned a horse and buggy and who was willing to enter the service of Uncle Sam as mail carrier between Denver and Tinker's Flat. So a contract was made for four years, in which it was stipulated that Joe Bixby should give Tinker's Flat a weekly mail privi Hedge, in return for which said Bixby was to receive the sum of six hundred dollars per annum.

Ask any of the farmers or hunters hereabouts whether they are afraid of rattlesnakes and they will answer promptly that they don't mind them very much, writes a Pennsylvania correspondent. Ask them if they fear blacksnakes, and they will say yes without the slightest hesitation. This fear of blacksnakes has come down to most of them from their parents with a story that none of them is ever tired of telling. They all declare that it is true, and it is so well known and is told with so much solemnity and evi dent fear by the natives that it is hard to disbelieve it The story runs like this: Many years ago a well-to-do farmer lived with his family near the barren land verging on Pike County.

To ii complete understanding of the Mc Kinley lull, the reader must bear in mind that a change from ad valorem to specific duties may mean either an increase or a decrease, without that fart being nt first view apparent. A specific duty is a fixed sum on. each ton, pound, gallon or hundred of any article imported. A ad valorem duty is a fixed percentage on the cost of the article. For instance, the 20 cents a bushel on wheat was but 10 per cent, when wheat was *v2 per bushel, and 20 per cent, when wheat declined to SI. To equalize these conditions the McKinley bill changes many articles from ad valorem to specific, and imposes duties of both kinds on arti cles thought to be liable to fluctuations but the exact increase or ...
