East End Sabbath School Pienic.
Mr. Editor: It is our privilege to
tell you that the East End Sabbath
school gave its annual picnic last Sat
Through the courtesy of Mr. G. M.

day. Mr. Sligh also spent the day
with us. Many thanks for his kind
Early in the morning the Sabbath
school gathered at the church. Shout
-ing boys and laughing girls soon told
that our rustic trains were on hand.
A few minutes put the living freight
aboard, and away went the jolly crowd
for the picnic ground. It was a bright
!occasion. The morning looked a lit
tle lowering, but all seemed to think
every cloud had a "silver lining."
A program was prepared for the
children's pleasure and heartily they
went into the practical part of it.
Those above real children had a kind
of pleasure of their own, into which
only two were admitted, yet no one
thought them selfish.
But our Sabbath school picnic must
not be all mirth. We must remember
that we are working for our Master
and that the crown of the occasion
must b egiven to Him.
"In all thy ways acknowledge Him,
and He shall direct thy paths." Col.
W. H. Hunt, our chosen speaker, ar
rived in due time and he gave us an
address than which none could better.
It was an earnest appeal to parents
and children to think of the duties and
responsibilities resting upon them. He
urged them to be up and doing with
al their might, that they might lead
some poor sinful sout to Christ. May
his weighty words be "seed sown on
good ground." After Col. Hunt's ad
dress a sumptuous dinner was spread.
That good man, Mr. Bowles, invoked
the dinner blessing in his reverential
way All then enjoyed the dinner. The

The Herald and News likes to run
across beautiful things, whether in art.
nature or in the life of humanity, be
cause of a belief in the beautiful, the
good and the true. The reporter hap- 1
pened at the postoffice the other day t
and saw a letter that Dr. W. G. Hou
seal had just received, in which The
Herald and News man bt-ame at once
interested to the extept of asking con
sent for the publication of parts of it.'
The doctor finally yielded to the per
suasive argument so far as allowing
a little local made of the letter. He
was too modest, however, to let tne
most complimentary portions of the
letter appear in print.
To explain matters, It is necessary
to state that some time ago Rupert
Riser, while practicing at the college
gymnasium, fell and broke a part of
his elbow joint. Dr. Houseal thought
that the accident would leave Rupert
with a stiff arm for life. How success
ful he was in his treatment of the
broken elbow, and the gratitude of the
parents, will be seen by the letter, a
little part of which is as follows:
"Dear Doctor: It is with pleasure
that we receive our boy back home
again, sound and well. We have you
to thank for it. We appreciate your
kindnesses often repeated as they have
been. . . . The break was at a bad
place, and it must have put you to
much trouble to make it a good arm.
I am grateful.
"Rupert is lively, and seems well;
but has his arm in the sling yet. He
seems to think it ought to be so. We
have him use the arm a little.
"Thanking you again, for myself and
wife, also for his grandparents, I beg
to remain always,
"Y. von A. Riser."
Of course the Rev. Mr. Riser did not
expect to see the above in print,
neither did Dr. Houseal intend to give
it to the public, but The Herald and
News feels that Mr. Riser's friends
will be glad to learn that in treating
the broken member Dr. Houseal has
been able "to make It a good arm."
Newberry Took Both Games.
The Newberry Juniors celebrated

All About Three Geese.
A certain countryman was chargei
n a magistrate's court as feloniousl:
:aking, stealing and carrying awa:
hree geese, the property of a womal
'eighbor. The facts being that th<
reese were upon the land of the man
iamaging his young corn, he drovi
hem into his pasture and kept them
emanding a small amount as darn
The legal question before the cour:
1. Whether any larceny had beer
:ommitted in taking up these geest
qhile on the man's land damaging hie
:orn, and for that purpose, the inten
ion to steal being wanting, the geese
eing taken up in the day time, whilE
amaging the young corn, while thE
'wner was looking on, and simply
eld for the payment of damages tc
2. Wlgether poultry is included un
er the statute (Section 1497) which
aakes it "unlawful for any owner ol
er domestic animals, to run at large
beyond the limits of his own land."
The legal dictionary classifying poul
try under head of animals (domitae
naturae) and Webster's International
dictionary, defining an animal as a
creature with breath ("animns"
breath) with: power of voluntary mo
tion and digestion.
The trespassing of one - neighbor's
chickens, geese, turkeys, etc., on an
other, is a source of great and gener
al annoyance and damage, and the
I question how to regulate such tress
passing is a very important one to al
most every one.
One circuit judge has already de
cided that a goose is an animal, evi
dently because it is a breathing, mov
ing, digesting, living creature, and the
statutes make it unlawful for the
owner of all domestic animals to al
low same to trespass.
The magistrate decided the man
was guilty of larceny of these geese.
The decision now being appealed
from, and the higher court will decide
whether any one has the right to pro
tect his crop from damages under the
statute law or under the common law.
