little girl visitor, had lately been sitting
while putting on her slices, was burning.
He seized a quilt from another bed and

not until Mr. Fishburne was severely

THE DAGO AND THE ORGAN.
The residei.ts and merchants on Jeffer?
son street were treated to the sweet mu?
sic of a grind organ manipulated by a
dago yesterday, but for once the prover?
bial monkey was conspicuous by its ab?
sence. Tlie rain, however, proved too
much for the dago and he 'repaired from
the scene, much to the relief of everyone
save the small boy, muttering to himself,
'There'll come a time some day."
A VERY NEAT SOUVENIR.
The Times is indebted to the'Fishburn
Conmauy for a very pretty souvenir of

pamphlet form and very tastefully ar
ranued in all Its details and is one of the
neatest thinus of the kind possible. In
the front part of the pamphlet there are
rules of card etiquette for both ladies and
gentlemen, while in the bncK of it are
samples of letter and note paper, engrav?
ing and visiting cards. Besid?s being
both '.useful and instructive it does its
work ns an advertiser and [shows to the
community at larue wlat advantages

nearly fifteen years and 1 have belonged

all traveling one road. The only differ?

THE MA CLANE SERVICES.
The rainy weather did not prevent a
large crowd from attending the revival
services at the Fourth Avenue Christian
Church last night. A noticeable feature
was the number of young men who seem
to be intetest'il. Mr. MncLane, after
giving a ten minute talk on how to read
the Bible, illustrated by his splendid
chart a line sermon from John, 14:0, ID a
most interesting and favorable manner
He developed the thought of "Christ's
supremo mission" among men. To save
souls, rescue the lost ami be a mighty in?
fluence in every life was Christ's supreme
parpose among men. His illustrations
were all Irom the Bible and so grrphi

A DANGEROUS COW.
On Saturday morning while Mrs. W.
I). Stewart and three children were at
Crystal Spring Park her attention was
suddenly aroused by the screams of
Qulnn, her eight-year-old son, who bad
bcen\kuocked down by a cow, which was
doing her best to gore him. Mrs. Stew?
art ran at tho cow with her umbrella
raised, and thus caused the animal to
desist. She managed, with some diffi?
culty, to get the children out of reach of
the enraged beast. But for the thick
coat which the child wore it is very
probable that he would have been gored
to death. This should be a warning to
the children not to go to the park unless
