For Our Church Paper. Birthday. Messrs. Editors: —I desire to give, through the columns of your •valuable paper, an account of some interesting circumstances which took place on April 11,1887, this being the th birthday of the pastor of Solomon's Ghurcb, Shenandoah county, Va. When it was known that the birthday of said pastor was near at hand, a number of the members of Solomon's Church and some other friends, determined to make a pleasant surprise for their pastor. Let me tell you and your readers, their noble determination was a grand success. On this day a two-horse wagon, driven by Mr. Geo. Minnick and accompanied by Mr. Harrison Pence, (both members of Solomon's Church) was well loaded with all good, niee, and sub stantial things for use in the family and at the stable. The big load consisted of wheat, corn, sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes, canned and dried fruits, peach butter, jelly, sugar, ooffee, eggs, butter, soap, money, dress goods, and other wearing apparel, &am...

count de Ltssrrs,. Mov» the Venerable t'raudi Caual-Bullder Prtaervas Hl* I'liysLcul Strentftli. (Carp, iu Cleveland Leader.) De Lesseps' remarkable strength in his. old age comes from his good habits and his power to sleep. He has taught himself to sleep at any time, and it is said that he eau sleep a whole day and a night at a stretch. He sleeps during his railroad journeys. He sleeps all the time he is on ship-board, and when necessity demands it, he can go for a long time without sleep. He is a great, out-of-door man. He likes to hunt even in his eightieth year, and it is not long since that he was accustomed to take a cold bath every morning. Like Bancroft, he is very fond of horseback-riding, and one of the sights of the Hois de Boulogne, the great woods of Paris, is l)e Lesseps mounted on horseback, and accompanied by his children on ponies going on a trot or galop through its wide roads. There is nothing nervous about the Count de Lesseps. He never loses his head, anil he is...

For Our Church Paper. Facts and Figures- No. 3. Altar Fellowship. The Lutheran Church does not admit any one of oar yoang people to communion, until after confirmation. Although our yonng people in our Lutheran families attend our church regularly from childhood to 20 years of age, and, although they are well indoctrinated, have clear and correct views of onr doctrines, yet they cannot be admitted to tbe Supper ere confirmation. Should we have two ways of admission to tbe communion, one for our children, by instruction and confirmation ; and auotber, a more easy and short way for tbe sects surrounding usT No instruction, no examination, no confirmation, and yet nrge them to come, and admit tbem to command Is it the business of the Pastor to look around, find out what course to take to secure the greater amount of popularity 1 Or, should it be his busness to study to know the mind of the Spirit, and do the will of oar Father in heaven 1 There is little use to seek popularity so eager...

From tbe Sbtnamloab Valley. J The Dismal Swamp. Editors Shenandoah Valley: Gentlemen —Thinking a short account of this, in some respects wonderful country, would interest your readers, 1 will endeavor to give you a short description of the Dismal Swaiup and our mode of lumbering, and also of crops raised and kind of soil. The Great Dismal Swamp extends north and south through two counties In Virginia, and about 40 miles in North Carolina. It varies in breadth from 7to 20 miles. In Virginia, near the North Caroliua line, is Lake Drummond, 7 miles long and 5 wide. Its origiu no one knows, but it was undoubtedly left there during the upheaval that raised it above tbe ocean. The water is fresh and deeply dyed with tbe leaves and immense undergrowth and accumulation of ages.— The Juniper water is much sought after by those suffering from urinary diseases. Tbe growth of the Dismal Swamp is Juniper or (white cedar) Cypress, Gum, Ash, and their kindred species, and reeds which, in some sect...

For Our Church Paper. Rcdedlcatron- Mt. Harmon Evangelical Lutheran Church, Newport, Augusta Co., Va., was rededicated, on Easter Sunday, services commencing on Thursday nigbt previous, It was a time of rejoicing, to the few members left, who have had their trials and disappointments. The Ohnrch bad gone down until it was very uncomfortable, espeoially in winter. Several attempts had been made to remodel, but failed. About nine months ago we were induced to take bold of the work which was very discouraging in the out-look, there remaining only twelve members, three males and nine females, and these not being greatly blessed with this world's goods, but the will was there and an interest manifested in the community. We went forward with faith, believing, God would open np the way by which the means would be furnished. The building was reweatherboarded, roplastered, painted, papered, and finnished with new pnlpit, carpet, and stoves at a cost of Dearly $300.00. We were in debt about $...

All the coarse food should be passed through the fod-der-cutter.-- Troi/ Times. —Chloride of lime is an infallible preventive of rat.s, as they flee from its odor as from a pestilence.

What to Give- Tithing the income for religious purposes is regarded by many as an abiding Scriptural principle. In oar recent remarks on "Expenditures and Benevolenoes" we reflected on tithing only as an ideal or limit for Christian giving. Whatever may be the view of tithing as au obligation it is obvious that this is the least which can be asked as an offering for the priceless privileges of divine worship and Christian work. A correspondent, who has strong convictions in regard to tithing for worship as a duty, thus presents the Scriptural argument.— He says: "I know of no one to-day who maintains that the tithe can fill the measure of a Christian's giving. On the contrary, those who teach it claim that we cannot really 'give' until after we have separated the tithe; for 'giving' is beyond, out of that which is freely at our disposal. There is an abiding principle in the tithe, which we should understand apart from prejudice, and from the Levitical law. We hear of it prominently ...

LIFE IN GIBRALTAR. Restrictions Under Wliicli the Civil Fopulatum of the Fortress Is Placed. Gibraltar, besides its garrison of 7,000, has 15,000 inhabitants. For a fortress of such small extent this population is embarrassing. The civilians are every where sacrificed to t lie military. In the village anil on the rock the best locations are occupied l.y barracks. Every thing that serves the needs of defense, the health and comfort <>f the troops, is admirably looked after. From top to bottom the rock is furrowed with excellent roads, and in the city the streets are marvclously clean and well kept. The sewage system is perfect, and gas and water abound everywhere. But the civil population is shut up in a very restricted space, most of the houses are hovels, whose existence is subject to the caprice of the military, for, above all, nothing must interfere with the iiringof the batteries. Not a new building has been constructed for twenty years, for all the availab...

CHURCH PAPER. ESTABLISHED 1873. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XV. THE HOUR OF COMFORT. .Sometimes there comes within the life, This checkered life of ours, So much of loss and pain and strife That our sad eyes, with tear-drops rife, Look up and see no flowers. A sudden sorrow clouds the day, And the tired heart grows faint, For strength and courage die away, And lip* that have been firm to pray Can only make complaint. And lite becomcs at such a time An unattractive thing; There is no sound of cheery chime, The days move on in dreary rhyme, And bring no heart to sing. If such a time should come to thee — And somewhere in the years For every one its pain will be— Do not despair, but try and see Some sunshine through the tears, And know that' he whom sorrows teach Receives a gift from heaven ; His tenderness some hearts may reach To whom the glad in vain might preach, And joy through him is given. O, then, be thou a comforter To some more sad than thee, And while thou t...

Finding Pharaoh. In the May. Oentury are two profusely illustrated articles under the above caption describing the discov ery of Pharaoh'stomband pioturingits contents. From the first article by Mr. Wilson, the photographer, we quote this account of the way in which the tomb was located : "In a line of tombs beyond the liamesseum lived four sturdy Arabs named Abd erRasoul. They supplied guides and doukoys to tourists who desired to visit the ruins of Thebes, and sold them genuine and spurious antiquities. When tbey found a mummy, It being forbidden by law to sell it, the head and hands and feet were wrenched off and sold ou the sly, while the torso was kicked about the mined temples until the jackals name and carried it •way. I purchased a head and hand of one of the brothers amid the dark shadows of the temple at Qurneh. Early in 18S1 oirenmstantial evidence pointed to Ahmed Abd-er ltasoul as the one who knew more than be would tell. Professor Maspero caused bis arrest, and he lay ...

THE BUSY MOTH. An Instructive Bit of Natural History Kelutlnic to the Bare Old Bird. You will lintl a great deal of valuable information about the moth in books; you will leaVn that be possesses inventive talents of a high order, and jaws which closely resemble a pair of scissors. But a full realization of the creatures ingenuity can only be had by intimate personal acquaintance. The moth is not an intelligent-look-ing bird. On the contrary, he has a receding brow and chin, a wholly unintellectual cast of countenance—a sort of You-havo-waked-me-too-soon-let-me-slumber-again look. Hut if you tuck the bed-clothes under his chin and go off on tip-toe in order that he may slumber again, you will ere long find yourself a victim of misplaced confidence. His unprepossessing features, and his habitually weary look are wise provisions of nature to enable him to successfully impose upon the human race. If he possessed a massive forehead, large, soulful eyes, 'neath finely penciled brows, deli...

Lords of Egypt, there's the slave, Heed ye Dot the mountain wave, Who's a God the wretch to save, When 1 ask for blood. Deeper grew the gloom of night, Fearful grew the water's height, But the gleamy pillar bright Marked out Edom'a coast. Swiftly sped the exiled barul Till the last had reached the strand.

The Hoods are coming! Fly! Ah, see there; that awful eye Looking ut us. Godl we die! God is in the cloud.
