A Good Appointment. Gov. Allen,
on Friday last, appointed Dr. Joel Pom
erene, of Millersburg, Surgeon General
of Ohio. This is a good appointment.
The Governor might have hunted a
long time among the Medical fraternity
of the State, before he could have
found a man that would fill the office
better than Prof. Pomerene. The Doc
tor was a war democrat, served in the
army as Surgeon, and was beloved by
all who came under his treatment. For
the past three years he has been Profes
sor in the Medical Department of the
"University, at Wooster," O, where lie
has gained many bright laurels. As a
physician and surgeon, he stands very
high in his profession. We congnttn

Dedication of Presbyterian Church
The new Presbyterian church will be
finished and ready for service by next
Sabbath, on which day it will dedica
ted. The ladies are now putting down
the carpet, and the carpenters are busy
putting in the seats. The church when
completed will be one ot the handsom
est in this part of the country, and one
that does credit to the people of Millers
burg and vicinity. Solomon set an ex
ample to the world in the matter of
erecting Sanctuaries for the worship of
God. God's house should be no mean
place, If possible to prevent it. We are
in duty bonnd to give of our means to
assist in building houses of worship
and bad we but the liberality of she
people of old, when about to erect the
temple, there would be no difficulty in
procuring plenty of means. They
brought in of the things that Solomon
had commanded them to bring, until
they bad to be told to desist, that there
was more than enough. What is to
hinder our people from being thus lib
eral in these days? Tbe people of Mil
lersburg and its immediate vicinity have
shown tbeir liberality by giving of
their abundance during the past two
and three yean to build churches, and
now, when one of these churehes, that
are ornaments to our town, and which
enhance the value of property several
per rent, is about to be dedicated, let
every one step forward and contribute
of their means to the liquidation of the
debt that is still upon it, Tbe services
of dedication will commence on Sab
bath morning at 11 o'clock. The ser
mon will be preached by Rev. Dr. Tay,
lor, President of Wooeter University.
In the evening Rev. Dr. Hays, Presi
dent of Washington and Jefferson Col
lege, will preach. On Monday evening
following Dr. Hays will deliver a lec
ture on tbe subject "Everyday Rea
soning." we are authorized to say that
all persons from a distant who may de
sire to attend the dedication, are cordi
ally invited to do so, and accommoda
tion will be provided them.
Tbe Temperance Movement. The
feeling upon this subject is daily grow
ing deeper, although tbe excitement is
not so intense. Another public meet
ing was held in Town Hall en Monday
evening. Tbe Hall was densely packed,
and good order was preserved through'
out the whole proceedings. The meet
ing was called to order by the Presi
dent Mrs. Wm. Cary, and opened with
prayer by Rev. O. Badgley. A tem
perance song was then sung, after which
Prof. Loos made the opening speech.
His remarks were good. Another song
was sung, and theu Mrs. D. W. Van
Event read an address which was lis
tened to with marked attention. After
another song, G. W. Everett, Esq., was
called out, who made some feeling and
practical remarks. As the hour was
now growing late, the President an
nounced that there would be a nnion
prayer meeting on Tuesday afternoon,
in the basement of tbe Methodist
church to which all were cordially in
vited, both gentlemen and ladies. The
meeting then adjourned. Throughout
all this meeting a deep and settled con
viction pervaded the whole audience
that those who are engaged in this work
are strong in the determination to car
ry the work through, knowing no such
word as fail. As we have said be
fore there is no spirit of hatred or vin-
dictiveness shown toward the rum
seller, but simply an earnest desire that
they leave off their death-dealing traf
fic. Wearing Spectacles. When the
eyes begin to fail nse them as little as
possible at night, and avoid reading fine
print or doing any work by lamplight,
which tries them. But when yon in
stinctively adjust your book so as to get
a better light, when the eyes are easily
fatigued and there is a sense of effort
to make out the letters in print or to
take stitches iu sewing, spectacles are
needed. They are the last thing to be
bought for cheapness. Brazilian glasses
are the best, because of nature's make,
and most difficult to be scratched, but
you should wear manufactured glasses
first until the eyes becomes accustomed
to their use. Always note the number
of your glasses and the date of the first
using them if lost, you can tell what
number you want. Glasses should be
washed in cold water every day, wiped
dry with a linen fabric and then with
buckskin, never with paper, as it
scratches them. '
Work. We find the following sensi
ble thought going the rounds of our
exchanges, without the proper credit:
Every man and woman who lives by
work, should accept employment wher
ever offered, without being fastidious as
to the kind or exacting as to the wages.
The first consideration is, something to
do. This obtained, food and shelter are
assured, and the wolf of hard times is
kept at a respectful distance. The un
employed who remain idle rather than
accent low wages and rough work must
expect to be pinched, and no advice will
do tiiem any good. A general willing
ness to labor. Whatever lanor win leave
very few unemployed, and nearly ob
viate ail want. Each decrease of wages
increases the demand for labor. Then,
too, every employed person should so
work that he will be the last person dis
charged by his employer. The least
valuable men and women are thrown
out of tbeir situations first.- In ordin
ary times the rule is that dismissed em
ployee dismisses nimseit. ine same
rule cannot noia in times oi depression,
but the same principle keeps longest iu
place the man who makes himself the
most useful to his employer.
Great Difference, What a great
difference there is between people who
write for newspapers. Xot long since
a young man wrote a communication
for the Advocate, and it contained noth
ing but abuse of another young man.
We refused to publish this communi
cation, and the young correspondent
called at our office soon after and dis
continued bis paper. It was very plain
"what was tbe matter with mm."
Another person wrote a coinmiinica
tion for the Darter, a portion of which
we deemed objectionable and struck it
out. The author wrote ns a few weeks
afterwards to express "a thousand
thanks" for leaving out the objectiou
able matter. One thanks us for pre
venting a grave error, -and the other
gets mad because we won't permit him
to use our paper to vent his spleen up
on another. l u$carauat Advocate.

On Unity and Love.
BY ALLEN G. SPRANKLE, P. G.
Written for, and Read before, the Odd
Fellows, in their Hall, Feb. 2, 1874.
Human nature varies as much in dis
position as tbe different faces in the hu
man family vary; yet, notwithstanding,
we are all endowed with a spiritual na
ture alike, which is supernatural. The
spirit is the soul, and the soul is the life.
The heart is the seat of our sensibilities,
bnt our will governs those sensibilities.
In the brain exists that will, that un
derstanding which fluctuates the heart.
from whence spring emotions ot love.
Love comes from God. God is love. It
is only human to bate. We commit a
grievous sin when we do not give way
to our better nature. Our consciences
sting us severely, and we are too often
made sad by them. We know, and are
made to feel sensibly the frailties of hu
man nature, and our soul points to di
vine. It is not strange that we are ever
shifting uncontentedly here and there,
sorrowing and rejoicing, ever and anon
as we slowly and heavily tread our way
through the thick mist and intricacies
of this life, hoping to find at some time
or other the bidden gem. For there is a
something that man is to possess a
crown be is to wear, that he could not
be satisfied. All tbe world combined
its treasures and its powers cannot sat
isfy one single soul. There is a life in
man that reaches far beyond the mu
table shores of time, where "the branch
es shall unite with tbe vine."
Xo two things are more suitably con
nected or essentially important than
unity and love. The two are one and
inseparable. Love Is an attribute of
the heart that is difficult to define. It
is said, "Love is the reduction of the
universe to a single being, the expan
sion ot a single being even unto God."
Avoid having contumacious feelings;
shake them off. Cultivate a unity. If two
or three,or a body of men whose affections
are centered npou one purpose, and who
are net afraid of supererogation, nor
one doing more than the other, I will
guarantee you will find that body suc
cessful In their work.
Organizations, secret or otherwise,
cannot accomplish their mission without
these essentials, namely, unity and love.
The two create harmony and concord.
Spiritual unity," it is said, "binds to
gether every member of the human fam
ily;" therefore, "How good and how
pleasaut it is for brethren to dwell to
gether in unity."
It is oornnity that crowns our la-
bora with success. We should all feel
on an equal with each other. ' 'Bishop
Taylor aays: "Unison Is the word
which at once characterizes trne relig
ion, and describes the upper world."
I am sure if such be the case, tbe
union that is intended for the advance
ment of tbe soul of man through this
dark and dismal journey of life to the
Star of Bethlehem, will meet with its
just reward. Life is too short to quar
rel in, and too precious to be lost.
It often seems that when we set abont
to do right, when we are struggling, as
it were, for good motives, acts that be
hoove christian men, we immediately
encounter strong reverses; heavy bar
riers intervene; many tilings go con
trary to our wishes, that often dis
courage and distract ns, so much so,
that we feel at times like relaxing our
efforts, like throwing down the oars
and letting onr life-boat be carried with
the sweeping tide, but we again renew
courage, for we know it would be un
safe to yield, for ere long we would find
ourselves as we find many of our fellow-beings,
floating in some turbid
whirl-pool or a mere wreck on the
shores of time.
Avoid selfishness. Selfishness comes
not from wisdom, but from oscified
hearts ; hearts that have become har
dened by a continual nursing of it, un
til it impregnates our very ail. Noth
ing appears to emanate from a real sel
fish heart but thorns and thistles, which
prick and pierce those that need kind
ness. We cannot possess a nature with
out its being blended more or less with
that selfish feeling. We cannot attain
so near to .moral perfection, in the
present state. However we can try to
improve ourselves more and mora"nnto
the perfect day." So then, let ns love
one another, for
"Lore is the little golden elasp
That bindeth up tbe trust:
Oh. break it not, lest all the leaves
Shall scatter and be lost."
In St, John we find this beautiful
sentence: "Beloved, let ns love one
another, for love is of God ; and every
one that loveth Is born of God."
How truly miserable man would be
with no friends, no tender touch to close
bis eyelids, when his sight becomes for
ever dim, none to breath a sigh at his
funeral, or to scatter flowers above the
lowly place where he sleeps his last
To accomplish this unity and love in
its genuineness, requires untiring la
bor. We can't sit down with folded
arms and expect everything to turn up
in a favorable manner through a kind
of a "natural process" by chance, we
may say. Weeds and thistles spring up
spontaneously, and without any effort
on our part, but it would surely be a
poor harvest, were we not to prepare
the ground and sow our grain. Vigil
ance is necessary on every hand ; guard
ing against the things that are most
likely to dissuade us. We cannot ex
pect our lives to be all sunshine and
flower-strewn paths, for often murky
clouds gather hastily upon our horizon
and the flowers wither and hide the
thorns no longer.
Our faith is often tested. A good mail's
life-is a terrible conflict. Its a battle
between right and wrong, and wrong
always has the npperhand, for it is said
we are "prone to evil." But be ready;
be bivouacked for the fight as it comes,
and it may be we will come off more
than conquorer. Be up and doing
"And cheerfully singing farewell to life's
We will pass the last guide-post that
points to the hills."

In calling the attention of our read
ers to the advertisement of Vegetine in
another column, we nave bo doubt or
its genuine merit. The fact of its being
prescribed by many of the best physi
cians of New England and recommen
ded by the leading Apothecaries of Bos
ton, shows something mora tnan an or
dinary interest in proprietary medi
cines. So great is its character at home
that large quantities of Vegetine made
up in pyramidical forms, are tbe staple
of almost every druggist's window
throughout the New England States.
For all the diseases for which Vegetine
is recommended, it is tne only medicine
used where its merits have become
known. We welcome Vegetine into
our market, and trust those who are
suffering from disease will give it a fair
ti lai ior tneir complaints. Z4W4
