For Our Church Paper. Christmas Celebrations- Messrs. Editors: Allow me space to speak somewhat about tbe observance of tbe Christmas festival. I want to make the remark as the result of examining into this matter for several years, that as a rule, tbe non cburchly churches make a liturgical failure when they attempt the observance of any ohurch festival. They observe them, not con amove, bnt because tbey cannot stay tbe current of public sentiment in favor of it. Now suppose, for example, that a church should celebrate the Christmas festival, a blessed ohristlike and joyful time, by a theatrical play in which the children of tbe school are the aotors, and the "amen'' corners were fitted up with curtains for dressing rooms, and the pnlpit platform and cbancel were a stage, upon whioh the actors performed their respective parts T Suppose further that the music consisted of songs abont Santa Clans, and "See-saw,'' Dixie,'' "Merry Go Around,'' et cetera, interspersed with a prayer and ...

ON SHORT NOTICE. An Evi' ry-Uuy Incident Uivpn a (Jood Willi to u (iriii'rous llimlmml. [Chictifio News.] Seven out of ten people would turn nroutul and look at him, while not one in twenty would have given lier 11 second glance, lie was a great, big fellow, 111010 than six feet, with massive shoulders, a well-set head, and eyes that took in every thing at a glance. His dress alone betrayed his rusticity. The flannei shirt, soft hat and heavy boots all bespoke the country. It could be seen at a glance that she was a poor shop girl or a seamstress. Hot faded dress and colorless shawl, the slow, tired step, the weary, worn-out look in her great, dark eyes, all bespoke hopeless poverty, and as she walked along among the crowd of elegantly dressed women there seemed to follow her an atmosphere of want and misery. The man stood at the corner of State and Washington streets and was busy watching a big team of gray horses that were ] lulling a massive express wagon. As the team passed down...

F<* Our Church Paper. Desirable Locations. Luray, Va., Feb. 3,1887. Mb. Editor:—l am receiving letters both from the North and Booth about the advisability of locating at Luray. In thinking over the matter, I am sure I can best eubserve the interest of Individuals and that of our Church, for the inquiries come from Lutherans, by a letter to as many of our church papers as will be kind enough to publish it. In the old settled States of the North and West there are many Lutheran families to whom "Me place is getting too strait for them," and they are looking around for a new location. Wisely too, many of them are inquiring where they can improve their temporal, but not at the sacrifice of their spiritual, welfare. They do not propose to repeat the mistake cf Lot. We propose, therefore, to present honestly what we believe to be inducements to look to the plains of the Shenandoah, instead of to the Jordan. 1. The climate is mild and healthfal. The winters are short and not se...

FAITHFUL POMPEY. How an Elephant Avengod the Murder of a Pretty Girl. The Remarkable Story Told l»y a Clrcua Attache—A Foul Deed and Its Consequence*) —A Such as I>leu Seldom Look Upon. [N. Y. Sun.] In 1867 I wns attached to a cirrus, which had a route through Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. Among the six elephants In the menagerie was one named Pompey, and his mahout or keeper was an old man named Andrew Thompson. He had been in the show business all his life, and for the last fifteen years had been accompanied by his daughter, who was down on the bills as "Mile. Josie Picard, tlio wonderful equestrienne." The old man was a widower, you understand, nnd I tell you he was one of the kindest and best fathers to Josie, which was her right name. She was, at the time I am writing of, about twenty years of age, handsome, vivacious, well educated, and loved by all. During the winters she attended a seminary in tho East, and had many friends in good society. Every summer she had a sc...

For Our Church Paper. A Noble Deed-Thanks! The undersigned, in appreciation of tbe liberal and unexpected kindness shown tbem by two members of St. Paul's Lutheran Oburcb, Wilmington, at Christmas, feel that they mast tffake public acknowledgment of the same, as the act was such a noble one I Two members presented us with a $200 interest in a large and successful business. For all the gifts do we tender thanks, and especially for this noble and liberal one. God bless the kind donors and their families. A Striking Statement.—The folly of the French Canadians of Montreal in resisting vaccination a year ago when tbe small-pox broke out in that olty has been strikingly demonstrated by tbe report of Dr. Louis Laberge, the health officer. Tbe proportion of deaths that year among Catholics other than French was 29.60 per 1,000, among Protestants 20.05 per 1,000, among the French Canadians 64.72 per 1,000; this great excess of mortality, says Dr. Laberge, being mainly due to the neglect of ...

STORIES OF ANIMALS. A white buzzard haunts a plantation at Union Springs, Ala. In cities in India pigeons are often numerous enough to darken the air. Squirrels are so numerous and tamo in the woods of Concordia, La., that they can l>e killed with sticks. Henry S. Carpenter, of Osceola, N. Y., says he has caught '26,900 brooli trout during the past twenty years. An oyster weighing three and one-quar-ter pounds and measuring ten inches by six inches was taken at Huntington, L. I. A hen at Hampden, Conn., was placed on a dozen quail eggs, and hatched out eight quail, which she afterward reared with care. Mice carried off $105 in paper money belonging to Mrs. Lucy Cain, of Hannibal, Mo., and after tearing it into small pieces made a nest of it. While a man named Bonkin was lately fishing in a Dutchess County (N. Y.) pond a wild duck flew down, dived, swallowed the hook, and was caught. The six hundred French army cats, whose duty it is to catch mice in the clothing store-hou...

church" paper. ESTABLISHED 1873. HEISTKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XV. AN OLD SAW. A dear little maid came skipping out In the glad new day with a merry shout; With dancing feet and flying hair She snug with joy in the morning air. "Don't ting before breakfast, you'll cry before night /" What a croak, to darken the child's delight f And the stupid old nurse, again and again, Repeated the ancient, dull refrain. Tbc child paused, trying to understand; But her eyes saw the great world rainbow spanned; Her light little feet hardly touched the earth, And her soul brimmed over with innocent mirth. "Never mind--don't listen—O sweet little maid 1 Make sure of your morning song," I said : "And if pain must meet you, why, all tlw more Be glad of the rapture that came before. "O, tears and sorrow are plenty enough, Storms may be bitter and paths be rough. But our tears should fall like the dear e: nth'i showers, That help to ripen the fruits and flowers.

For Our Church Paper. Valentines- The oustom of choosing or drawing valentines is therefore quite anoient, bnfc however ancient it may be, it is probable that the sending of them is of comparatively recent date. The earliest of this character of which I have found any rccord, Is one from an original manuscript in the possession of a contributor to Notes and Queries. It was evidently written with the blood of the antbor, and is as follows: "These loving lines which I to you have sent, In secrecy in my heart's blood are pent. Ye pen I slipt as I ye pen did make, And freely bleeds, and will do for your sake. John Birehall, 1684." Those which are supposed to be the earliest poetical valentines known, and still kept in manuscript in the British Museum, were composed by Charles Duke of Orleans, who was taken prisoner at Agincourt in 1415, and written while in the Tower of London. John Lydgate alludes to the custom of valentines in a poem in praise of Queen Catherine in 1440, and be also w...

What an amusing, artful fellow tins ehewink is! for I am persuaded that there is more significance in that foxy-red vest of his than is generally accredited.

A Singular Piece of History- The following singular piece of history was Bent ns, by an esteemed frieud residing in Baltimore Oity, Md. In regard to it, he says in a private letter: " In reading 'The Evangelical Magazine'" of London, for Jan., 1814, I found an old historical account of the Lutherans of Virginia, nearly 150 years ago; bnt I expect you have seen it before. At any rate, I have copied it and sent it to you, and you can make what use you please of it." "A wealthy planter, Mr. T. Morris, of Hanover Co., Va., having providentially fallen in with an old oopy of Luther on the Galatlans, there found representations of Gospel Truth, such as ho had never met with before, and widely different from what he had been aooustomed to receive from the pulpit. Deeply affected with the view of banian nature, and the way of salvation, which this work exhibits, he never cessed to read, to inqnire,andtopray, until he found consolation in Christ, as the Lord bis righteousness and strength ; ...

Mr. Webster's Story. Hen. Perley Poore says that Mr. Webster used sometimes to read the conclusion of ft charge by Judge Dudley, a trader and a farmer, a manuscript copy of which be had for many years in bis desk. It was a treat to hear him read It in pare and undefiled English, ss it doubtless came from Judge Dudley's lips: "You have heard, gentlemen of the jury, what has been said in this oase by the lawyers, the rascals! but, no, I will not abuse them. It is their business to make a good cause for their clients; they are paid for it, and they have done in this case well enough; but you and I, gentlemen, have something else to consider. They talk of law.— Why, gentlemen, it is not law that we want, but*jnstioe. They would govern 08 by the common law of England.

CHURCH PAPER. ESTABLISHED 1873. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XV. THE OPEN DOOR. Within a town of Holland, once, A widow dwelt, ' tis laid, So poor, alas 1 her children asked One night, in rain, for bread. But this poor woman loved the Lord, And knew that He was good; So, with her little ones around, She prayed to Him for food. When prayer when done, the eldest child, A boy of eight years old, Said, softly, "In the Holy Book, Dear mother, we are told, How God, with food by ravens brought, Supplied His prophet's need." " Yes," replied she, "but that, my son, Was long ago, indeed." " But, mother, God may do again What He has done before ; And so, to let the bird fly in, I will unclose the door." Then little Dirk, in simple faith, Threw open the door full wide, So that the radiance of thsjr lamp, Fell on the path outside. Ere long the burgomaster passed, And, noticing the light, Paused to inquire why thus the door Was open so at night. "My little Dirk has done it, sir," ...
