Tho fire was caused by a defective flue situates! in an out-house attached to the residence of I). K.Geis.

From the JournaVt encomiums, wc judge that it was in every way a brilliant success.

It Is a comet, it seems, that was first noticed only thirty-three years ago, and since that time has approached the earth regularly every seven years.

The town council evidently bo- liuvu that the mission of the moon mutt not bo overlooked, and it conduct their ac tion* ut night at rigorously at tho veriest tyrant that over ruled In tho Roman Em pire. For instance, if tho almanac an nounces tho fact that a littlo rim of silver light from the " new " moon will com mence illuminating the heavens on a cer tain night, just to surely goes the mandate forth that on that night tho street lamp* mutt not lie lit. It would be a horrid crime, you know, for any artificial light to take the place of the " fairy moon-light." If such should be tho case, fair Luna might lake offense anil depart and never again cheer u* with her delightful rays. For in stance, the usual almanac that hung in the council rooms on Wednesday night of last week must have indicated "new" moon, and consequently great haste was made to glvo the order " no street lamps must be lit." Now, tiiu most respectable portion of tbe inhabitants of this town are accus tomed lo attend prayer meeting on that night—in this instance they paid dearly for tho privilege. On emerging from tho church, the moon had long since vanished, nastreet lamps were in sight, and dark ness reigned supreme. In addition, tho rain was coming down with blinding fury, and pors'ins had to make their way home a* best they could. Fortunately, we have not beard of any one who was lost bo yon 1 recovery, although several timet per sons wandered a grout distance out of the way, and many case# of miraculous e ! e#caj>* from dr iwning are reported. Ily encouraging sbouls and help from those ac | customed to "way* that are dark and , trick* that are vain, everyone at last i succeeded in reaching their resjicctive j homes alive. —The Philiptburg Journal gives the | following account of an accident that bap- I pened to Mr. James M. Kosemteel, who i* connected with the extensive tannery at that place : "On Monday afternoon, as Mr. James M R-sciisleel, was loading a car load of leather at tho tanm-ry, he met with an accident, that proved comparative ly slight in the injuries he received. Hav ing twentv-flve side* of leather on a hand truck he asi pushing on an elevated trestle from the dry house to the railroad traik, tho trestle having been disarrange Ihin some cause and not being fixed immediate ly, was forgotten, and therefore, when Mr. Kosensteel was passing over it with the leather it fell to tbe ground, a distance of , about eight feet, throwing him and the ' truck upon the pile of timber- Fortunate ly no bones woro broken and be escaped with only some severe bruises. —The Central Pennsylvania Conference closed its annual session at Ilioomsburg on Tuesday last the 2*>th of March.

Those in the 1 audience part of the room did not know exactly what was the matter, and supposed they had merely lisen too soon, by mis take, and were too stubborn to sit down again. The truth is, the seat threatened ' to give away beneath the heavy weight upon it, and the choir w as Compelled either to no or else take a lowly and uncouifort ' able seat on tho floor. —Tho*a young ladie* who only rare for their boaui for the ake of the elegant buggy and f*t hor*e* that they own are just now in a quandary. They do not like to give them the " mitten," while, at the um time, these beaux are worth no more to them than *o much superfluous rubbiab. In view of the preaent condition of the country road*, it will be *ome time before they ran take a ride with pleaaure, and the aforesaid young ladie* ladies have merely to " endure " these beaux until the weather will permit yiem to be of some u*e. —-J. Newman, Jr., king clothier, aay* that he ia not trying to humbug the peo. pie (or trying to run anybody out of the trade) by telling that ho ia telling at coat.

From tho important event* which occurred in tho latt weok of the Saviour's lifo, it hat boon called from primitive timet, Tho Great Wook, and Tho Holy Week, and later, Tho Passion Week. A* o as tho timo of Chrysostom, Bishop of Constantinople, A. I). BM-407, there* wa* during thit week a general cessation of business among tho Christian part of tho people. Fasting wan observed with groat* er strictness than in tho other weeks of Lent, and special act* of mercy and charity woro engaged in by all, the Christ ian emperors setting an official example. Tho llrat day of tho woek is familiarly know at Palm Monday, and is derived from the custom of branch-bearing, which was practiced at one of tho high festivals of the Jewish church—tho Feast of Tab ernacles—and was a reminder to the Isra elite* of their going forth out of the wilder ness. They woro commanded—"Ye shall laku you on tho first day the bought of goodly trees, hrnnchet of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of tho brook ; and ye shall rejoico before the Lord your God seven days." (Lev. xxiii -40.) And there seems to be a connection between tho usage of palm-bearing and the Divine ritual, both of ,Sinai and the New Jerusalem; for John writes "Af ter this I beheld, and 10, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all na tions, anil kindreds, and jieoplo, and tongues, stood before the throne, and be* foro the Lamb, clothed with white robes and pnlmi in their hands." (Itev. vii-fi.) In the ancient Knglish church on this Sunday the Blessing of Palrns took place before the beginning of the Holy Com munion. The narrative of Israel's en camping by tbe twelve wells and three score and ten palm trees wa first read ; then the account of our Lord's triumphal , entry into Jerusalem, when the jseople cut down branches from the palm treat and spread them in the way. After tffis the palm, yew, or willow branches were laid upon tho Holy Table, and (lie minister pronounced a blessing over lb<m. A ; ro ccssion then passed round the church sing ing anthems, and distributing tho branch es. On this day the Lutheran, the Re formed, tho Kpiscopal and the Roman churches begin to set before nu-n the suf ferings and death of Jesus Christ, which is contemplated at least in their liturgies or forms of worship, throughout tbe entire week. —Tho name of Mr. Wtiliam Duck, a butcher ia Hollidaysburg. disserve* lo go down to fame.

Six months after he connected himself with the church, and soon after Started business with a Very •mall < apilal, and has now * flourishing and |>aying business established, and a smiling, happy family to greet bitn when hs goes home In the evening."
