the deepest red of any Coal Known.
An equal quantity ignited will yield at. least one
third more heat than any other coal. It is more
quickly ignited than any other anthracite (thus sav
ing expense in kindlings); while after ignition, with
a proper reduction ot draft, it will outlast all other
coal, ami remain longer on lire.
A much less quantity of this coal can be kindled
and will retain its fire, tliau can be possibly used ot
white ash, this tact will result in large savings in
spring and tail, and at. such times as require only a
moderate degree ol beat.
In slimt, it is the most eootioaiical coal known,
and needs hut a trial to give it the preference over
all others.
We would also call vour attention to our other su
perior Coals, such as kclaigh, John*, Gri*coni,

To the Editor of the Press:
What a widely different thing is Sunday in
the country from Sunday in the town! I have
never wondered at the conclusion of the little
country-bred child, who being taken to the
city on a visit, declared on her return that
they didn't have Sundays in the city; there
was so much going on that she rather thought
God forgot to make them auy! If He does not
forget the day it is quite certain that a good
many of His children do.
But here in this remote and peaceful region,
is the true Sabbath feeliug and aspect. You
wake early from sleep that is souud and re
freshing; and the deep stillness everywhere,
the freshness and purity of the “incense-breath
ing morn,” speak to you like an invocation to
prayer. The soul takes naturally and sponta
ueously the attitude of devotion; the heart
rises in involuntary aspiration to the bounte
ous Creator of all this beauty. The stillness is
prcfouud. Not only is there no echo of the
noisy world that foams and chafes outside this
quiet haven,\>ut even the ordinary sounds of
rural life are hushed. There is no driving of
teams afield, no noise of labor about the barn,
no ring of whetting scythes, no shouting of
children at play. The men go saunteriug
about the yard and garden in clean white
shirt-sleeves; and within doors the women,
folks move softly, making quiet preparations
for the day’s sacred duties. Then the bells—
in town their sound, even on Sunday, is not
without some faint echo of the week’s disso
nance and clangor; but here their sweet, far
sounding peal is iu harmony with the morn
ing’s serenity and repose. Soon, obedient to
their summons, come forth from the scattered
homes the country folk in their best attire,
moving decorously to the house of worship.
Ou foot mainly, or in wagons. There are uu
smart turn-outs, such as one sees in the larger
towus, or in the villages where fashion makes
her summer resorts The wagons are fitted
with double seats in which tht whole family
stow themselves, and drawn by strong-limbed
horses whose level necks and rather un
gainly motion tell of much week-day la
bor with the hoeing machine and the mower.
Here are the fathers hard-handed and shread
eyeu; tue motners rattier bent anil failed,
with the look of care not quite banished from
their kindly faces, and the children, freckled
and healthy, who having run about barefooted
all the week are a little uneasy in respecta
ble shoes and stockings. Here are big-should
ered youug fellows whose faces have been
tanning all the season in the fields, not notice
able for grace of deportment but the kind of
stuff for all that which beat down the hosts
of rebellion and treason; and here are bloom
ing young wunen with the starch of their
Sunday fim ry a little the worse for close
packing in the wagons, but looking as if they
could make butter, or a bonnet, keep a school
or do the honors of a husband’s home with
dignity and propriety whether he should hap
pen to he a farmer, the governor of a Wes
tern state or ambassador to a foreign court
And I have no donbt they can. They read
the Press, and the Atlantic Monthly, and
there is no position which in ten yoars time
you may not see them filling with as much
grace as if they had been born to it.
In the country everybody goes to church, so
no matter what your city habit is you join, of
course, “the well-appareled throng.” The
prim, white-painted church, standing back of
a little strip of green sward, has a long wooden
doorstep in front, and on one side a row of
sheds for the horses. The numerous windows
have no blinds, so that the light within, re
flected from staring white washed walls, is
painfully strong, and the heat intense. The
good man in the pulpit evidently feels it, for
by the time ho is well in the middle of “third
ly” he pulls off his coat and proceeds with the
sermon in his shirt-sleeves. Nobody seems to
be surprised at this free-and-easy proceeding;
indeed, as most of the men present have made
the same comfortable arrangement for them
selves, I infer that it is considered the proper
thing to do. The minister puts great energy
into his discourse. He is strong on points of
doctrine, and he drives his lesson home with
much force of voice and gesture. Involunta
rily you recall Burns’s description:
Hear how hr clears the points o’ faith
Wi’ rattlin’ and wi' thumpin,' ” &c.
But the heated air and the hard labors of
the week have an effect npon the congrega
tion which is in some instances more than a
match for their interest in the preacher. Their
heads droop one after another, their eyes close,
and presently the hot room fades out of sight
and mind, and the benediction of slumber, so
much richer in blessing than the formal one
of the preacher rests upon them.
After the service there is a baptism, and the
whole congregation troops forth to witness it.
We follow also to a spot by the riverside, where
the bank shelves down to a little strip of sandy
beach. Here the different actors in the sa
cred rite are assembled. The minister and the
neophyte, both arrayed in loose robes of blaek
serge, occupy the centre of The group, while
around them stand the elders and assistants.
A prayer is said and a hymn is sung, many
voices joining in the strain. It is a most im
pressive scene. A thunder-cloud is rising in
the west, and the air lias that b-eathless, ex
pectant hush which precedes the shower. Not
a bird or a leaf stirs in the branches above us,
but, now and then, the thunder mingles its sol
emn bass with the sweet hymn that floats up
from the water-side. The candidate is a young
girl. Her face is pale, bnt calm, and full of a
rapt and tender joy. It is beautiful to see how
calmly she goes down there to be buried under
the musical, rippling waves.
The ceremony ends with a brief benediction;
the crowd begins to separate, and we turn
away. A strange and beautiful thing is faith.
I doubt if I have ever envied any human being
more than for one moment just now, I envied
that young girl. I say so to the Doctor as we
walk home, aud he answers with a quiet
smile:
“‘I like a church; I like a cowl;
I love a prophet of the sou.;
* * •
But not t<»r all his faith can see
Would / that cowled churchman be.”'
And, in good truth, neither would I.

as either tight and short coat, tight trowsers,
all shirt front, scarcely a line of necktie, or

turn round in corkscrew folds, and, to crown

—At a late sitting of the Swedish Parlia

But your constitutions foist bad rulers forever

—At a collection lately made at a charity

—A city journalist is New York has become
a benefactor to his race by inventing a speech
extinguisher. which is described as follows: It
is a large sheet-iron cone which fits into a
grooved plate. The plate is fixed on the floor
and the cone fastened above by a chain of suf
ficient length to admit of its descending to
the groove. It is so arranged that at the end
of five minutes it falls and becomes almost air

—The New York Herald has an aocount,
given by a correspondent, of a visit to the is
land of Juan Fernandez, which takes away all
the poetry from tbe narrative of Robinson
Crusoe. The attempts to colonize tbe island

sionally. They declare that pledge taking
does not control people’s appetite, neither does
sumptuary legislation; and moral and legal
suasion having failed, they are going to try
what can be done medically. The Society ac
cordingly appointed a committee to report on
the medical, civil and social aspects ot intoxi
cation and the duty of physicians in the prem
ises. It has long been contended by those
who have given the subject the closest consid
eration, that intemperance is a disease, and
should be treated as such; and instead ot pun
ishing drunkards, by sending them to jail,
they should be sent to a hospital.
—It is rumored that Senator Oonness is o
be married to Miss Hildreth, a nrece and ward
of Hen. Butler, as well a. a beautiful and ac
complished young lady.
