Col. H. E. Wheeler, business agent of

city yesterday, preparing for the coming of
this brilliant company for one entertain

evening of April 2tli. Speaking of Miss
Fetter, the Macon (Ga.) Telegraph says:
Like a star, brilliant and beautiful, Miss
Selena Fetter flashed at Ralston hall last
night in her genius and power, as Margaret
Elmore in the charming five act drama of
"Love's Sacrifice." We were surprised at
the great talent and grace displayed in her
conception of the character. Her gestures
were excellent, her physique elegant and
dignified, and her voice musical yet
She is but one step removed from Mary
Anderson. She is an actress of wonderful
and unusual brilliancy.
The costuming of Miss Fetter is costly
and beautiful; a fair creature attired in
tasteful elegance, making a picture lovely
to look upon.
THOSE THEOLOGICAL STl'DOTS.
Cairo, April Kith, l!$l.
Df.ar Sir It certainly is very sad and
disgraceful that two young men studying
for the ministry should be engaged in a
burglary; but let me say that the danger
of those young men getting into the min
istry was not quite so great as might appear
to many on reading the story of their crime
in to day's Ult.lktin. Phillips academy,
though under the control of congregatiim-
alists, is not, properly speaking, a theo
logical seminary, but a school preparatory
to college. If, therefore, those young men
had escaped detection in this crime, they
would have spent four years in college und
three in a theological seminary before be
ing admitted to the ministry. Let us sup
pose they had gone to Williams or Am
herst college and then to Andover seminary
so us to enter the Congregational ministry.
The chances would have been ten to one
that during the seven years in those excel
lent institutions, their true characters
would have been developed and discovered.
This is one advantage ot so long a training.
I daresay it sometimes iutppens that a man,
nearly as ban in his moral prmciplus as
they proved, runs the long gauntlet and
comes before the world as a minister of the
gospel; und therefore the church mid
school authorities can not bo too
careful in their supervision of young
men seeking the sacred olllce.
I have for some tune held thu opinion,
which may seem to som" harsh, that when
a mini, either in his preparatory course or
iu the ministry, hp t . . n shown to be guilty
of a deliberate viola' ion ot good morals lie
should never bo reiih ..tted unless it be alter
he has re-established hU character and
shown tlio truth of his penitenco by many
yours of extimplury conduct in some other
walk of life. YourH,

Henry Sanua, aged twenty years, died of
an affection of the brain at the residence ot
Mr. Peter Fair, on Nineteenth street, at
Beven o'clock Friday evening. Funeral
takes place this afternoon at two o'clock
from the residence, where services will be
held. The remains will be taken

and a very promising young man. The
friends of the family are invited to attend
The precious infant son of Jacob and
Aniarala Martin, aged two years, two
months and nine days. Funeral services at
the residence at half-past oneo'clock to-day.
The friends of the family are invited to be
present. The remains will he taken to
Villa Ridge by special train for interment.
A congestion of the stomach caused
death after a number of days of sutTeriug.
The sympathy of many friends, though it
is soothing, to some extent, to hearts torn
with grief, is a p'Kir recompence for a loss
such as Mr. and Mrs. Martin have sustained
in the death of their child.

Next Sunday, according to the weather
wise, ends the cold weather, as it is argued
by them that we never have warm weather
till after Easter. "Won't'' we be glad to
meet again with wurm spring weather?
Perhaps, that will make amends for the
destruction of our choice radish plants,
destroyed by the hard freeze we have had
since April began. Do hope that M.S. D.
Greene has had good luck in the gardening
line, and that she has found . at Pro
toplasm and a fifteen-year-old boy has
been evolved, an I liny he be successful
in ridding hi rg irdeti of all noxious plants.
The Dungola municipal election is now
numbered with past things, the smoke of
the battle cleared, and we are happy to
report no lives lost. The old board to a
man arc our trustees again, the new aspi
rants nil bring left far behind. The "no
liquor license" party were badly left, being
beaten two to one. It is often the case that
a good cause in the main is lost by be
ing supported and engineered by a party,
whose standing in society is not envied by
the honest and honorable. That the trade
in intoxicants is to a large extent haras
sing to good morals, no sensible person can
deny ; but at the same lime if those who
are licensed to sell will do their duty, and
not transgress the law wo fail to see any
thing very hideous in tho traffic. When,
however, every advantage is taken of the
law that can bo taken, we are convinced
that license to sell should at once be
revoked and ho who attempts to take out
license, whose character as a whisky dealer
is had, should bo given a wide berth.
Prospects for fruit and a good crop of

Electric Light Photographs.
According to this invention, it is
staled, more speedy and accurate pro
ductions of enlarged photographs,
whether in pigment or otherwise, can
ho obtained bv means of the improved
apparatus which is used with com
pressed air and artificial light, ami by
preparing more sensitive absorbent) of
the image than hitherto used, Tho fol
lowing is mainly the process: The elec
tric or other lignt is placed in a com
partment by ilself, and through oue or
more apertures tho rays of light travel
and are projected into, and taken up
and condensed In, condensers, widen
may bo of solid glass, or made hollow
ana mien Willi water. By moans of
pipes cold air la constantly passed ovor
and round in condensers for tho pur
pose of keeping them eool. At a pro
er distance from tho condensers are
placed tho pictures to be enlarged, and
at a greater distance, in the same lines,
lensos are placed parallel and concentric-
with thu condensers. The rays
thus piuss through tho picture, accord
ing to tho several densities of Its diflor
cut parts, and are then taken up by tho
lenses, so that an Imago of tho picture
Is projected at proper focus. Vign
ettes of any shade can be obtained by
Intercepting the light between the lens
es und sensitive surface, and causing It
to pass through oval or round opetilugs. t
