Lutheran in doctrine and usage. Then
will the first born of the reformation

Sunday Exercises. *
At an early hour on Sabbath morn
iug a goodly number had assembled
iu tho Lutheran church of Ornugcburg
which is really a thing of beauty, and
in all respects creditable to the Luther
ans of this place,to witness the services
of the day. Tho morning service was
