Woman Visit the Jail.
1 On Thursday afternoon, as is
the custom in this city, a few
zealous woman and men assem
bled at the jail to hold religious
service for the benefit of the un
fortunates confined there. Un
fortunate, however guilty, to be
shut in from freedom and useful
ness by their own act. "Uncle
Billy" produced his big bunch
of keys and soon the ponderous
doors swung heavily back among
the faces pressed in curiosity
against the grating. Stone
flooring, stone walls, iron doors,
everywhere bolts and bars
Within the high enclosure the
inmates of the cells gathered,
filing out from the dark and
musty chambers of the ground
About forty we're soon in the
stone court,, all of them black ex
cept nine. Chief among the
white men stood Bole Roberts,
a man whose naturally . honest
features now bear the shadow of
anxiety. Upon the decision of
one man rests his next four , years
on this earth. The dictum of a
single human being. He reali
zes that whisky brought him
where he is, as it has brought
many, if not all, of his compan
ions. The negroes all sat
around the pump platform or
aganst the high wall. The
white men stood, hats off, re
spectfully watching and listening.
There was no defiance anywhere,
no sullenness, and very little dis
play of indifference. To the
short address, the prayer, the
reading and the singing all
listened. One man wept bit
terly and freely. Many -voices
joined in the chorus, "j Am So
Glad That JesuLoves Me, even
At the close two of the ladies
went around taking the names
of new inmates, and presenting
prettily bound pocket testa;
merits to those not heretofore
Perhaps some good is done at
these services from week .to
week. Perhaps they are soon
forgotton. At all events they
afford recreation, if nothing bet
ter to those lives, spent in such
torturing monotony. The two
woman, Mrs. I nsco of infamous
celebrity, and Mrs. Pugh whose
sentence was for complicity in
theft, ave upstairs. To them the
ladies went first, and were most
welcoms visitors. s
The glearners reorganized after
the summer vacation with nearly
all the members present and a
few new ones. Since the death
of little Effie Hogan the Guild
has not adopted another chiid,
but, work for the Polly Monroe
cot at the Infirmary, which they
support entirely. The after
hours aer spent in making warm
garments to help supply the
needy for the coming winter.
Although this society is com
posed of the younger girls, they
show great interest in doing
what they can. The gleaners de
sire to thank friends for their,
kind donations, and ate always
grateful for any little help they
may receive, for it is the drops
that fill the bucket.

The Methodist Conference at
Lexington resolved on the whis
ky question, "That we use all
honorable means to secure total
absteniance for the individual and
total prohibition for the State.
That the traffic in and use as a
beverage is a sin and that we
can not consistently as christians
license a wrong and tnat we are
unutterably opposed to any sys
tem of license, high or low.
That we view with alarm the
fact that nine-tenths of the liquor
business 111 the country is 111 the
hands 'of foreign syndicates and
individuals of foreign birth, who
have no interest in our moral
and religious institution."
The Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road Company has sent to each'
employee a circular note, of
which the following is in part a
copy: "This company will not
under any circumstances employ
men who are in the habit of be
coming intoxicated. All em
ployees known to frequent drink
iug-places must be warned to
discontinue the practice or quit
the company's service. Em
ployees will be discharged if in
toxicated either on or off duty;
No person discharged for intoxi
cation will be reimployed."
The Millersburg W. C. T. U

baskets of ice, 44 baskets of vege

Fathei, saying: Take me Lord,
and use me as Thou wilt.
Whatever work Thou hast for
me to do, give unto my hands.
If there are those 1 hou wouldst
have me help in any way, send
them to me. Pake my time and
use it as Thou wilt. Let me be
a vessel, close to Thy hand, and
meet for Thy service, to be em
ployed only for Thee and for
ministry to others. "In His
iVcws from Afrn. Crony.
Mrs. Sara B. Cronly, whose
philanthropy is well-known to
our citizens, left us some weeks
ago for a visit to Alaska. She
sends her bill of fare from Queen
Charlotts Sound, on board the
City of Topeka, the steamer that
landed her and a crowd of other
passengers at Sitka. On the
margin of the yellow leaflet is
written in pencil, "Love for all."
This with her literally means
"all;" for all know her by her
good works. The readers of
The Record will be glad to
know she has not gone where
there is nothing to eat.
