The recent experience and action of t
Congregational church, of this city, is quite
extraordinary. A month ago I.ev. W. II
Warren, who had been it- rastor for nearly
twelve year-, left for the Central church.
Cincinnati, to the universal regret and sor
row of the people, who -coined to think
that no one w a-worthy to fill his vacated
place, and that they would get a temporary
supply and try to get him back, in a year
or two. Iltit the Kev. S. P. Dunlap. lateof
Kans.1-., was invited here to preach
for two bahbaths, as a supply uot as a
candidate anil was then asked to remain
two Sabbath- longer, and on Kndav even-'

church, and when Mr. Dunlap arrived. th-
people were all standing, and under Mrs.
E. It. Cheney's leadership, at the organ,
were singing "lVat-e God from Whom all
Illes-Ing- Flow,"' with a vigor that shomd
they meant it. .Mr. Dunlap made a brief
but most hearty and touching address, ac
cepting the call and speaking most hopeful
ly of the future work ot the church.

igate to attend the council and installation
of the late pastor, Mr. Warren at the C

The jinj-breaking at the First I're-byte-nan

tably successful affair, and a large audi
ence was present to witness the novel and
intttresting exercises. The hr-t thing on
the programme wa- the singing of King
the Hells of Ileaten,' by the children.
This was followed by Scripture reading and
prayer by Ket. Dr. Falconer. The Boys'
b iiid next performed their part in the exer
cises, each little lad advancing to the front
during the reading of averse ot an appro
priate poem, and debiting bis little jug,
which contained his hoarded-up accumu
lations of pennies, etc. Mis- Dunlap. the
artist, then read a paper entitled, "A Vis
ion of the Future," which betray ed an ao
titeaud intelligent imagination, and was
highly appreciated. The baud of Willing
Workers followed in an exercise similar to
that of the Boys' band, except that the lit
tle girls advanced and emptied their jugs
each at the recital of a ver-oof scripture.
The member- of the Conversazione, the eld
est organization of the three, next executed
the ceremony of breaking the jugs, which
was full of interest. The amounts from
the several organizations were as follows;
