He used to come with Mr. Bobert Garrett and act as tbe Secretary of tbe Stockholder!' meetings. He was a dapper looking little man, alert, and of few words, aod nothing very remarkable about him save bis black eyes.

TO A CHIIISTMAS-TREE, GROWING. I>enr little spruee-tree, dark and trim, I guess the reason why Whene'er a light wind stirs a limb Y<>u give ii go a tie sigh. What though you're green through all the year ? You miss your heart's desire. In gay array you ne'er appear, with branches touched with lite. In June you see the tullp-treo Filled high with cups of llatne; When fall returns the maple burns; Hut you remain the same. Through rain and heat, through cold and sleet, You stand In sober gown ; Your needles rust around your feet; Your baby cones are brown. Rut change your sigh Into a song ; When flelds In snow aro clad—since I, dear spruce, have loved you long— I mean to make you glad. I'll load your boughs with tapers tall or yellow, red, and blue; And many a glittering crimson ball, And ball of purple, too; And gold and silver cone-shaped things Close-packed with sugar-plums; And, last, a waxen Child with wings— When happy Christmas comes I I'll light...

They MOg with lutes, with harps and flutes, With areqr tuneful string; But still again, came the-refrain— A new, new song now sing. Years rolled away and brought the day, When, to the shepherds' ear, O'er Judah's plain, there came the strain The psalmist longed to hear. For angels bright, with heavenly light, Then struck this sweet new chord— To you is born, this happy morn, A Saviour, Christ the Lord. Glory, thts ei'jf, to God on high, And on the earth be peace; rhe King comes down to Bethlehem's town, Whose kingdom ne'er shall cease. Sweet silence then came down again, The angels passed from view; But still the earth slags of bis birth In that glad song so new.

Methodist Propaganda.—The General Mission Committee of the Methodist Episcopal church of this country has appropriated $3,500 for the Germans of the Pacific coast, and $4,600 for its Central German mission work. For mission work among the Scandinavians nearly $4,800 were appropriated. And yet we find some Lutherans who contribute to support Methodist mission work. All Lutherans ought, on principle, decline to aid such proselyters. The Kentucky Court of Appeals rejects the doctrine that drunkenness can be any excuse for crime. The point came up in a case where a man committed a murder while under the influence of drink. He was convicted and sentenced to death, but his case was appealed on the ground that he was two much intoxicated at the time the crime was committed to be responsible for its acts. The court held that the statute made drunkenness itself an offence, and "one crime should not privilege another." Stall's Yeah Book.—A leading paper of another denomination, says: "We rega...

For Our Church Paper. Rev. W. P. Swartz's "Statement." Editor Ocb Church Pai'kk: In your issue of November 24th, there appeared a communication from Rev. W. P. Swartz, in reference to his course in withdrawing from the service of the Board of Foreign Missions. As Mr. Swartz's letter contains a number of statements that are calculated to make a false impression on the minds of those who are not acquainted with the facts in the case, I was asked, as Secretary of the Board, to correct them through your columns. This would have been done much sooner except for the necessary delay in order to secure certain correspondence bearing on the case. It is not my purpose to express any opinion or indulge in any criticism of Mr. Swartz's course, but shall aim simply to give a plain statement of the case as gathered from the minutes of the Board and the correspondence in my possession, and then allow your Readers to judge for themselves. 1. As to Mr. Swartz's relation to the General Synod's Board....

Seems nowhere to alight; the wliited air Hides hills and woods, the river, and the heaven, And veils the farmhouse lit the garden's end, The sled and traveler stopped, the couriers feet Delayed, all friends sh.it out, the housemates sit Around the radiant fireplace, inclosed In a tumultuous privacy of storm. Come, see the north wind's masonry ! (tut of an unseen quarry, evermore Furnished with tile, the fierce artificer Curves his white bastions with projected roof Hound every windward stake, or tree, or door; Speeding, the myriad-handed, his wild work So fanciful, so savage; nought cares lie For number or proportion. Mockingly, On coop or kennel lie hangs l'arian wreaths ; A swan like form invests the hidden thorn ; Fills up the farmer's lane from wall to wall, Matigrc the farmer's sighs ; and at the gate A tapering turret o'er tops...

For Our Church Paper. A Look Backward. by j. a. M. I have been reviewing my Church History studies, and have gathered up many interesting facts as I walked leisurely along. They are not new to the student, but I have picked them up and tied them together, in a sort of historical bouquet. Just so Ido in the spring, when wandering through the fields, and admiring the new born floral beauties; they are all familiar to me, but I cannot help plucking them up and gathering them into a fragrant nose gay, to adorn my study table, whence they exhale their fragrance through my room. It is known to all readers, that the necessity of a Reformation was universally acknowledged long before it occurred. Before the great schism in the church of Rome (1378 to 1414,) there was a general desire that the Head and Members of the church, that is the Pope and the Clergy, Bhould improve their morals and set a better example to the benighted people. In those times several popes at the same time contended fo...

The Grain Supply. Some information in regard to the graiii supply in the I'nited States, will he of interest to most ot our readers. The information which we gather from various sources, which seem to lie reliable, clearly indicates, that the quantity on hand on the first day of.lanuary, 18X8, is not near equal to that on hand Jan. I, 1887. Through tile fall months and December, it appears the wheat remained about twenty million bushels, and the corn about seven million bushels less, than they were at the same time the previous year. Presumably this difference was ehielly caused by the drouth which prevailed during IXB6 and IXB7, throughout the West and other sections, and the ravage of the chinehbug, which will account for the disparity. These are matters for consideration, and should interest every one. The following which wp take from the A". Y. Journal of Commerce, may be worthy of attention, so as to enable all to inako better calculations and estimates in regard to the present...

All day with busy thought and hand, The patient mother wrought and planned, And strove to do with needed care, A duty here, a duty there; Yet on her face, about her work, A covert smile would often lurk, A mother's smile which came unbid At something that the children did. She watched with pride some boyish feat; She marked her girls and saw them sweet; She thought the sight was passing fair Of baby, grasping at the air; The awift jfitort of childish wit She heard, and keenly relished it; And uftderneath the look that chid She smiled at what the children did. When, at the weary end of day, The youngsters, soundly sleeping, lay; The mother, by the evening (ire, Recalled their pranks to please their sire; And when the fire was but a spark, When all the quiet house was dark, When Slumber came with drooping lid, She dreamed of what the children did.
