Rev. M. Henderson Write-*.
There is a gay, sandy whiskered man
out at Rockford, 111., who claims to be
the Christ, about o'OO persons have ac
cepted his pretensions as the truth and
having le/t ail, follow him. People are
however, as badly duped oitimes bv
less skilful frauds. Numi ers of our citi
zens are being beguiled by pretended
friends of the race without stopping to
think they leave manhood and every
thing else noble to follow a delusion and
a dream. Thank God, twenty-three who
for years had been beguiled by Satan, at
last have renounced his service and come
over on the Lord's side. The Church is
revived and fullot fire, it is wonderful to
see how much drawing power a warm
christian has. Members old and young
arebard at work bringing in strangers and
in other ways helping the church. The
Sunday morning congregation is now
larger than the night congregation was
test year. The old soldiers are re
freshed, the new recguits are full of zeal
and the church is all aglow. Last week
the pastor was assisted by brethern
Black, Ford, Taylor, and Beasly.
Brother Black is a strong man of God,
brother Ford is deep thoughtful, and
his talk lull of substance, brother Tay
lor is earnest, pointed and effective,
brother Beasly wins the heart with his
beautiful illustrations and forcoiul words
and made a lasting impreesieu. The
members of the church and the earnest
workers from our sister church all seem
to combine their mi^ht and power in a
way that makes Satan tremble. There
are in St. Paul some of as good singers,
piayers, and exhorters as can be found
anywhere. A more earnest and able pet
of lady workers cannot be found. All
must concede that the greatest factor in
the progress of the race has been and
still is the church, next comes the
school, and last but not least the Press.

A singularly atrocious murder was
committed an Somerville, Tenn., Sun
day morning, the victim being Mrs. Sal
lie Hobson, and th murderer her elev
en-year-old boy. Mrs. Hobson was a
servant in the family of the Episcopal
minister and lived with her four chil
dren in a small house, in the rear of the
parsonage. This morning her husband,
who had been in the country at work,
called at the house in company with
another man, and after a short stay star
ted out for a short walk. Returning an
hour later a terrible sight met his eyes.
On one side of the door lay the decapi
tated remains of his wife and several feet
away was the head. A stick of wood on
which her neck had been placed when
the cutting wa3 done showed three dis
tinct cuts of an ax. The boy was found
playing with the other children, his
clothing saturated with blood. He at
first claimed that the blood came from a
chicken which he had killed, but at the
coroner's inquest he admitted that he
committed the crime. He said his
mother laid her head down on the block
and told him if he did not cut her head
off she would kill him. The boy's story
is not believed and he w* placed in
jail pending further investigation.

Some time ago a Colored boy named
Jones and a jockey for Trainer Henry
Owsley at the race track, stole $30 from
John Morrill, shoer of race horses.
Owsley liked the boy, whom he had
taught and had in his employ for a long
time, and he prevailed on Morrill not to
prosecute him if the money was restored.
The latter consented, with the under
standing that Jones was to be soundly
thrashed and given a good talking to.
Mr. Owsley caught Jones and infermed
him of Morrill's proposition. The boy
objected and attempted to run away
but Joe Allen, a rubber, caught him and
held him while the punishment was au
ministerei. When he was released i
told Allen that if he had to wait a hun
dred years he would get even with him.
Sunday afternoon about 6 o'clock a party
of jockeys and stable boys were spinning
tops in front of the stable, and Jones
was among the number. Seeing Allen
approach, he drew a pipe from his pock
et. Jwst as he raised his top to spin it
he handed the pipe to him, saving
"Light it while I spin my top." The
latter unexpectingly pomplied, and in a
moment an explosion occurred. The
pipe was full of powder, and one of Al
iens eyes was totally destroyed, while
the sight of the other was practically
ruined. Jones, who was taken to jail,
admitted that he had filled the pipe on
porpose to injure Allen. The physicians
fear that the shock to Allen's nervous
system is so great that he will die.
