When tho case of Brother Turncv was

During tho past year Turncv had been
appointed to tho "Woodburn cir
cuit, and ho (tho elder)
soon became convinced that Turney was
tho wrong man in tho right plnco. " Within
four weeks nfter Brother Turney com
menced his work," miid the elder. "I re
ceived a communication signed by three-
fourths of the peopln of Woodburn circuit
asking tho young man's rcmovnl. I
couldn't remove him and induced tho dis

Watson's definition of a miracle. He
turned to a book of manuscript of his own,
and read his own definition of u miracle.
Ho then Informed us that tho definition
was not Wagon's, but was u great deal
better. Finally ho became so disgusting
that the committeo wero compelled to in
form him that ho must not bo so Insolent.

To the Editor of the lluUctin.
Mr. O. AV. Hughey, n gushing member
01 tlio conference now in session in this
city, notifies the world that In; has
prepared a work of one hundred and tutu-
five pages, upon Catholicism, it pernicious
cueet, lis degrading inllueiicc, etc, etc,
in fact a work certain death to Catholic
tenets and the n plus ultra of Catholic
poison. This liu adds will bo sold for two
bits per copy. Wo have no doubt but each
and every copy of this valuable volume
i charged with posltivo Methodist hate
Catholic blasting powtler sufficient to
shatter Catholicism from turret to founda
tion rtonc, nnd havo heard it rumored that
Dr. Dollinger has nlrcndy sent Pore Hy
acinthfc'Mpon a mission of congrntulntion
to tho Confcrenco of Southern Illinois
which is so favored as to enumerate among
its members the gifted Hughey. In viow
of these facts, as well as tho unquenchable
anti-Catholic ardor and total disregard
of filthy lucro, characteristic of tlio author,
whom providenco has seen fit to inako tho
"humblo instrument" of his vengcanco
against agninst Borne, wo had hoped that
Mr. Hughey .would havo dispensed his
doses nt confcrenco prices say two for
five cents or three for n dimo initcad of
tho enormous sum of twcntv--fivc cents per
head, fo ns to cnnblo enen and every mem
ber of the protcstant churche to obtain nt
least ono copy. NoM to man's duty to
board preachers and feed them on
yellow legged chicken-, lies what
duty if not till of pitching
into Catholicism at ovcrj- opportunity' By
all means, Mr. Ilugbny, put down your
prices; for, if it breaks you,-oii will always
be able to realize that yon wero "busted
in n good enuo.
AVe would a-k Mr. Hughey if he was a
member of tho Mctbudut Conlcrcnce Inch
as-emblcd In Chicago some two years ago.
If so, ho doubtless remembers how our
Methodist brothers opened firo upon C11
tliolicism, nnd gallantly charged upon
what they supposed wero unoccupied
works. Ho will nlo doubtless remember
how tho Bcv. Dr. , las. McMullcu, a Catho
lie prict of Chicago, popped up his head,
otrerina: it as a target for
Methodist arrows, and requesting 11 few
rounds with "any college bred" member of
their sect upon the nicriU of Cittholici-m,
abo how the challenges of tho priest met
with no acceptance, tlio heaviest strikers
making exit through holes of microscopic
dimensions. If anv member of that confer
ence had been provided with one. of Mr.
Hughey' productions how ditl'crcnt would
havo been the result! Thoy could have assail
cd him upon all sides and battered him into
oblivion, and havo " put a Mcthodit head
on him," at least. My all means Mr.
Hughey put down your price. Signed.
