A Pleasant Surprise.
SY'dARTREE RlDOE, O., August 28.
About 10 o'clock this morning, wagons
and buggies form nil directions wero
seen coming into our villago and wend
ing their way towards the M. E. Parson
age It had been decided to give our
Pastor, Rev. C. W. Briggs and wife a
surpriso, and so well had the secret been
kept from them that thoy never dream
ed of such n thing until a delegation
from Wesley Chapel drove up. Though
a number of their friends from Green
field had come earlier in tho day yet
even then they did not take a hint, but
procured a couplo of chickens and wero
making arrangements for dinner, but
they soon found that their four loaves
and two chickens would not feed the
multitudo that was gathering. So a
table 100 feet long was soon prepared
and almost loaded down with tho good
things prepared by the ladies. I think
tho table was the nicest of the kind I
ever saw spread and after 152 persons
had eaten their still remained enough
for as many more. After dinner two
organs wero procured at which Miss
Nettie Custor and Miss Becca Burba,
presided. After somo most excellent
singing, short addresses were made by
H. H. Redkey, Rev. O. W. Briggs, J.
VanWinkle, T. L. Beard, S. E. Redkey,
Mrs. Miller, of New Market, and Mrs.
Jury, of Greenfield. Bro. Briggs re
ceived a donation of $20.00 in money,
besides somo other handsome presents,
among which was a nice silver watch.
This is his first year in the ministry,
and he has had grand success. There
has been about 100 conversions during
the year and he has gained a reputation
he may well feel proud of. The people
are anxious for his return another year,
but if this should not bo the case, he
will have the prayers and best wishes
of a host of friends on Sugartree Ridgo
Circuit that we may ever be sustained
by power divine and fully accomplish
his Master's work.

Inoculate the whole town of Leesburg, and
there are privy vaults in this town that have
not been cleaned for five years. Now, while
Leesburg bu been full of typhoid fever and
other aickness, other towns have been healthy
and the reason for our sickness is very euily
accounted for. It is simply because people
here won't clean up their premesis, while they
do in other towns. Now we are satisfied in our
own mind that there is not a healthier town in
Southern Ohio than Leesburg, if kept proper
lv cleaned. Now. if our cental shoe maker.
