for the benefit cl their many friends In

of the Canadian papers. Mrs. Welch aud
htr three little children had gone to Can?

tle utrl, a particularly bright and inter
estiug child of three years, was playing
with two beans, which she placed iu her
mouth. While laughing, one slipped
down her throat, lodging in her wind?
pipe. She was immediately thrown into
convulsions. These increased in severity
and the doctors coucluded that only a
snrgiea' operation would bring relief.
This was performed, but the bean could
not lie found, and after lingering from
Saturday until Sunday evening she died.
Mr. Welch was immediately', sent for but
did not reach his family tuit.il after the
death of bis child. She was buried in

NOTHING HIT A NUISANCE.
Yesterday a small dog entered the
house of Dr. Hrougtltonon Church street
and frightened tlx- ladies nearly out of
th??lr w'ts. They ac once 'phoned to po?
lice headquarters for an ollicer and one
was dispatched to kill the supposed mad
dog. The ladies had locked the little
fellow up in the parlor awaiting the ar?
rival of the policeman, and all bands had
gone upstairs. Dr. Drougbton was away.
Ollicer Moss,on his arrival prepared hint
self for a regular light jwith a mad dog.
Armed with his police weapons he care
full opened the door .just wide enough to
peep in. Seeing that there was no fierce
animal to contend with, he cautiously
opened tho door .t litt le wider. The Ii? tie
canine bel?g glad to see a friendly face,
came running to him as though he had
recognised a good friend. Mr. Mos? was
not without a heart aud then he was not,
thirsting for gore, not even that of a dog,
so he turned the 1 it.tle animal loose, ivhlch
he afterwards described as not being big?
ger than a pound of soap after a week's
washing. It went trotting oil' down the
street at n lively gait and the ollicer felt
good that, he watt enabled to save the poor
dog's life, while the ladies felt that stray
dons were nothing but a nuisance ar.y

DEDICATORY EX EHOISES.
Great Interest is baing manifested in

IVin. f.Utisford is pastor. Last night the
church was well crowded with people to
he n- lb v. Dr. Broiighton on tile lM?er
sonal Responsibility of the Hapttsis in
Evangelizing the World." Dr. Brongh
ton in a general way ma le a statement
as to the personal responsibility of every
individual. One reason, he said,why the
subject is so stated is that the Baptists
have iti their creed, as 1 believe, more of
Divine truth than any othei church, nor
would 1 alve a snap lor n Presbyterian
or a Methodist who did not believe the
same in reference to his own church. My
obligation then, said he, as a Baptist Is
commensurate with my understanding of
the truth. Dr. Hroimton spoke with much
power. To-night Rev. Thomas ,7. Ship
man, of the First Baptist Church, will
speak on "Home Missions" and on Sun?
day the programme will be carried out
as heretofore published.
