A CHRISTIAN'S DEATH.
The Passing Away of Young Carey
Rev. B. C. Moomnw, of Buena Vista,
writes nu affecting letter to Roy. E. G.
Kregloe concerning the death of his son,
Carey Moomaw, a young man about 21
years of age, which occurred a sh ort
time ago "at Johns Hopkins Institute,
Baltimore, where ? the young mau had
been taken to undergo an operation for
appendilitis. The letter is so impressive
that it is published below in full ns fol?
"Dear Brother Kregloe: I expected to
receive just such a good Christian letter
from you as this day's mail brought me.
Suddenly we have been overwhelmed
with the greatest sorrow that can .come
to a paternal heart?the loss of a manly,
noble, Christian boy in the first prime
and rich promise of his young manhood.
I cannot portray how our hearts have
been utterly crushed with this ureat
grief and yet behind this dark cloud
shines a peculiar glory.
"Carey's spiritual life was very much
quickened during the Scboolfield meet?
ing and since that time there has been a
remarkable growth in grace' and ever-in?
creasing diligence in every good work.
1 rlid not know much of this, being away,
but so many have told me of the notable
and unusual manner in which the Chris
tian unices had within a limited time
matured in his life an'1 couduct. When
1 reached home, summoned by the tele?
gram announcing bis serious illness, al?
most the first thing I heard him say was,
'.Mamma, if I die I am going to heaven.'
That night 1 hurried him away to the
Johns Hopkins Hospital and the surgeon,
after o ami fiat ion anil first operation;
stated confidently that he would get well.
In a few hours he was worse, and a sec?
ond operation revealed fatal conditions.
I cannot describe in this limited space
all that occurred, bet I will tell you some
"He said to me very solemnly, 'Papa,
if I die tell mamma that I have gone to
heaven.' A delirium clouded his facul?
ties until about fifteen minutes before
be passed away. Then he became calm
and rational. With a solemn majestj'Jthat
I cannot describe, he said, 'My soul, my
soul, my soul is going into eternal rest.'
Then he stud that ho was trusting in
Jesus and that Jesus was with him. He
then reached up to me and asketl me to
ki?s him. Then observing the tears of
the mir?o he spoke to her tenderly of
Jesus, the Comforter and Saviour.
"Then he exclaimed in a loud voice,
'Blessed be the Lord, He is sending Hit?
angels.' The next instant he startled us
with a shout "Up, up. up,' just as if he
were sweeping up into the skies. He
then murmured something about h?iug
up so high and about, the blessed angels,
and in a moment he was gone.
"This dying rapture left upon his set?
tled features in deatli such a heavenly
smile as I never saw before. fiod be
praised for this great victory! Yours in

UNITED BRETHREN'S PICNIC.
The picnic of the United Brethren Sun
day school at Mason's (.'reek yesterday
was a great success. The attendance
was large and the day was spent in eat
Ing, singing, swinging and other harmless
amusements. In the afternoon quite a
serious runaway accident occurred, in
which William Mullen, wdiile gallantly
attempting to save two young ladies from
injury, was severely hurt himself* All
three were riding in the buggy and one
of the young ladies was jolted from the
seat In attempting to break her fall the
reins slipped out of Mr Mullen's bands
and the horse started to run away The
young ladies escaped without injury, but
the liorse ran into an embankment,
throwing the driver out and badly btuis
ins him about the hea>' and face The
buggy wns also oonaiderbaly damaged.

THE FIREMAN ILL.
E. L. Richardson, fireman at the Jeffer?
son street engine house, Is seriously ill
at his home in this city. While his
friends do not apprehend any Immediate
danger Mtey are quite uneasy concerning
THAT KICKING CASE.
In the case of the you"e man charged
with be'ng disorderly aud resisting an
officer the case resulted iu a fine being
imposed on the first charge and the lat?
ter was dismissed, as theevidence did not
justify a conviction. The f vhleuce of
the officers who had him in ; charge was
not sufficient to substantiate the charge.
There is no doubt thut tho four men who
had him iu charge were amply 'sufficient
to prevent him making any etfectuaP re?
sistance and from the position in which
he was being carried to the station. The
evidcuoe, as adduced in tho police court
yesterday morning, was of the same na?
ture as tho account published in The
Times of yesterday morning and was iu
every respect corroborative of it. Tho
general impression seems to be that Offi?
cer Gee was too hasty and his indiscretion
got the better of him and has placed him?
self in a most unenviable position. The
very thought of an officer of the law us?
ing his authority to commit an assault is
revolting in the extreme, and it is almost
sure to redound to the lasting shame of
one who prostitutes his position to grat?
ify any desire to maltreat a prisoner who
is completely iu his power.
