Christian Worship at Rugby.
Mr. Thos. Hughes, in his address at
Rugby, stated that the purpose of the
Board was to have one place of worship
for all Christians, of whatever denomina
tion, and expressed the hope that all
would heartily join in such union ser
vices. The fine church building is not
yet completed, but services are held
v Sunday forenoon and evening at Hotel
Tabard. The forenoon service is Epis
copal in form, and the evening service
is usually conducted by a member of
some other denomination. . The attend
ance upon both meetings is very fair for
the number of settlers, and the audience
at both is very largely composed of the
same individuals. The earnest attention
of those present is a pleasing evidence
that they have come there to worship
God, and not to answer to the roll call
of any particular sect. So far the faith
and hope of, the founders seem to be
verified in the practice by the settlers.
The hearty union of all in the commu
nion service recently held, was a striking
evidence of the recognition of the fact
that all the true worshippers of God are
one in Christ Jesus. How pleasant to see
people gathered here from such widely
sundered parts of the universe, amid the
beautiful and varied works of nature,
uniting so sincerely, so harmoniously
in the worship of nature's God I And
why should it not be so ? No one has,
or can have, the exclusive control of the
heart, ear, or hand of God; but all who
serve God in spirit and in truth are
accepted of Him.
May this experiment, so happily, so
..successfully inaugurated in this new
T--.yrS ' town, go on gaining strength with in
. (teasing numbers, until the names Chris
tian and Christ shall be the magic words
to unite heart to heart and hand to
hand, in the love and service of Him
who came to seek and save the lost,
and bids the weary and heavy laden to
come and learn of Him and find sure
, Y , rest to their souls. May the success of
' ' J ' J i this experiment prove to the world that
all Christians of whatever name or creed
may blend in perfect harmony their
praises for blessings received, their ap
plications for mercies desired, and jour
ney on helpfully together to lands that
are fairer than the fairest on earth.
A Cabin-et Meeting on the State of the
On the evening of the 29th of Decem
ber, things began to look blue around
"The Cabin," at Rugby. The coun
tenances of some of the "main promo
ters" began to wear an aspect of solem
nity; the less interested ones began to
slap their hands and jump around "right
smart;" and generally indicate that in
their opinion there was a "wow and
a wump'us" going on at the office of
' Old Prob. " As the shades of evening
drew on, they too began to lose their
indifferent manner, and looks of serious
mindedness began rapidly to take its
place, for it was noised abroad that Dr.
Kemp's maximum and minimum ther
mometer, hanging on the big oak at the
door of the "Tabard," had struck zero.
Now, in the mind of "the oldest inhab
itant" of Morgan County, zero means
something, something awful; so that
airs of solemnity and serious-minded-ness
soon changed to expressions of awe
and terror. No jokes were perpetrated
around the cabin fires that night. AH
available pieces of old carpet, over and
even under clothing, were heaped upon
the beds to ward off the terrible northern
intruder, but to no purpose. The cracks
and crannies in the pine cabin began to
open wider and wider, and at about three
o'clock in the morning, the Boss called
out : 'Are any of you froze ?" Six voices
in response answered "Yes! all of us."
A short but impressive silence was
broken by "Whar do you s'pose we
are?" Response in chorus, " In Ten
nessee." A longer silence was broken
by a voice proceeding from the bunk in
the north-east corner of the cabin (in
dicating a set and determined purpose,
tinder breath), "Who wrote the Rugby
pamphlet?" Wild and mixed responses
of "Yes, that's it, who? that's what
I 'd like to know ? never known to be
below ten above, did it say ? beautiful
snow? - thirty what ? no ! yes ! well,
we '11 find out! Bob, you get up and
build a fire, and, say, Bob, put on your
pants and go out " Pants ! I ' ve got
'em on I slept in 'em." "Well, slip
on your coat,' and go out and strike a
match, and see how she does stand." A
short interval, a whiz, slap-Kng, open
and close of the cabin door, and Bob
announced with an air of one who had
something to disclose, Seven degrees
below zero ! " Nothing more was said.
Bob built the fire in silence ;Vour break;
fast was eaten by lamp-light, and with
almost closed mouths, ' the cold wild
turkey left over from yesterday was al
most untasted; the venison steaks were
frozen too stiff to cut; the quails were
lying cojd and unpicked in the corner.
By solemn and implied assent, the entire
Cabinet resolved itself into a committee
of the whole, and determinedly proceed
ed to the Doctor's office, where they
were met and at once disarmed by the
handful of letters, papers and dispatches
just being received, announcing the
march and destruction of the terrible
cold wave from the north-west; and as
the indications from all the different
sections of the country were given, the
chairman became satisfied that no "foul"
had been committed upon Rugby, and
the Cabinet returned home in sunshine.
What we had left from breakfast was
joyfully warmed over for dinner, after
which the "school master" read us a
homily upon faith and p3tiyi

noble exertions and influence of Mr.

have so soon formed an institution in the
colony which is destined to prove a
source of future musical exercise and
culture to themselves, and especially. to
be a delightful acquisition to the attrac
