The First Presbyterian Church held
a very pleasant social at Oood Tem
plars' Hall on Christinas evening.
One of the features of tlie affair was a
Christmas tree loaded witli presents
for each of the 103 scholars of the
Sunday Hohook Among the presents
was an elegant ebony and rosewood
writing desk, accompanied by a gold
pen and pencil, the gift of the Congre
gation to their pastor, Rev. A.
White. A fine silver watch and chain
fell to tlie lot of one of the boys and
numerous other expensive presents
were In the list. Altogether tlie social
was most enjoyable for all who at
Christmas Feslfvittcs —M. E. Church South.
There was a merry Christinas gath
ering at Leek's Hall on Friday eve
ning. Tho entertainment was gotten
up by the Southern Methodist Church
for tho Sunday School children. The
whole affair was done up in a style
just to suit children. All restraint
was thrown off* and the big folks all
came down to the capacity of the little
ones, all entering Into tho amusement
which annihilated the distinction of
age and size. It is good for older
people to play child once in a while;
it increases the sunlight iv their face.
In lieu of the old-fashioned Christ*
mas tree, there was a curtain hung
across the corner of the room, the top
of which was about rive feet high.
The presents for tho children were
placed behind this curtain ami the
whole was called the fish-pond. The
fish-pole and line was put in the hands
of a little fellow, who was instructed
to drag his hook and line over into the
pond and when he got a bite to jerk.
What excitement and anxiety, while
the little fisherman was waiting for a
bite! A hundred little eyes were
watching that pole; by-and-by the
bite, then tlie jerk and out came tho
little bundle. ft proved, perhaps, a
dog—a real beauty—and tho next one
a lovely doll; then out came a pocket
knife, and all was excitement. This
Qshlrrg lasted nearly an hour. Then
came the supper, when all the little
folks were seated at the table first, and
the older ones waited All enjoyed the
evening with a gusto and went away
calling it a merry Christmas indeed.
Vernon School District, heretofore
almost unknown, we think, from the
advancement It has mttde In the past
year and a half, deserves notice.
Tbusday, the 24th Instant, was the
closl ng day for a vaeat ion of five weeks.
Quite a gathering of patrons and
friends was present to witness the ex
ercises. Miss Voletta Ellsworth and
Miss Flora Babcook furnished music
on the organ for the occasion, com
mencing with a greeting song. This
was followed by an introductory piece
by Jay Ellsworth, a lad of nine years,
when music, speaking, compositions,
declamations and the reading of the
"Vagabonds" by the teacher closed
Mr. Ellsworth then being called upon
evaded a Speech, but expresseda'.desire
for the best of school privileges. He
also, for the Hake of amusement, pro
posed the question whether the present
teacher should be retained in the fu
ture, and (jailed [bran expression from
the school. "Ayes" were heard from
the patrons before the question was
put to the children, and it was plainly
manifest that there was no thought of
changing teachers. Mr. H. Brewer
oml J. (J. A. Stanley followed with
appropriate remarks in favor of the
school. All present seemed to enjoy
the occasion. Everything spoke as
proof that H. J.Morgan holds a first
grade; certificate and controls the
school witli remarkable tact.
A Pleasrnt Time 9.1 the Orizaba.
Enrroit Hkkai,i>: After a sumptu
ous Christmas dinner on the steam
ship Orizaba, December 25th, 1874, the
passengers assembled in the saloon
and organized by calling Michael
lteese to tlie chair.
On motion of B. C. Whiting, a com
mittee of three was appointed to draft
a resolution of thanks to Capt. H. J.
Johnson, whereupon the chair ap
pointed B. C. Whiting,of Los Angeles;
Major Thomas A. Ball of San Francis
co, and P. V. Denster, of Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, as such committee. A few
minutes after, B. C.Whiting as Chair
man reported on behalf of the commit
tee the following resolutions:
Resolved, That the passengers on
the Orizaba desire to express their sin
cere thanks to Capt. H. J. Johnston
for his uniform courtesy, and urbanity
of manners, for his skilful seaman
ship, and for his generous hospitality,
in setting before them a sumptuous
Christmas dinner, to smooth the dis
appointment and soften the regrets of
those wdiose seats at home bad been
made vacant at the festal board, on
lit solved, that wo appreciate the
kind attentions of Capt. Johnson's of
ficers and men during the entire trip
of the Orizaba from San Francisco to
San Pedro. (Signed.)
B. C. Whiting, Chni'n. I
Thomas A. Ball. \ Com.
P. V. Denster. J
In presenting these resolutions Mr.
Whiting said it was but a small token
of the esteem in which ('apt. Johnston
was held by the passengers, aud he re
gretted that lie could not present to
that estimable gentlemen, some more
substantial token of friendship and es
teem as a Cliristmas gilt.
But as the worthy Chairman of the
meeting of passengers, as well as
some of their committee, were some
what impecunious,and could not be ex
pected to present an elegant gold watch
set in diamonds, ho should fondly
hope that Capt. Johnston would at
some future period be in tlie last two
lines of somejwell considered will; or
perchance In a codical thereto. If not,
then, he should certainly hope that his
friend Johnson would find a blessing
recorded for him in the high Courts of
The resolutions were unanimously

Coal vs. Wood.
I have often been asked, " Which is
tlie cheaper fuel, coal or wood ?"
During the past month I have tested
the matter to my entiro satisfaction.
I keep two cook-stoves, same size and
same make; they are used the same
time every day and kept at about the
same head ****** B ivin g me the best
possible chance to determine the
question of economy. I paid for one
cord of wood or two small loads, $14;
I paid for coal $10. The wood gave
out on the twenty-fifth day and the
coal on the twenty-seventh day. My
estimate is that tnere is a saving of at
least 40 percent, in using coal. And

Soon 'twill vanish like a bubble—

Let the wings of fancy bear our
thoughts back through many ages, till
they rest upon a scene in the city of
Jerusalem. Without pausing before
the magnificent temple, let us enter
the gloomy cell in which Peter slept;
with astony floorfora pillow,as bound
with iron, he lay, only waiting for the
dawning morn to bo led forlh and
murdered by the king. So deep is the
dreamer's sleep, that be is all uncon
scious that an angel's footsteps are
drawing near, and that the.stony walls
of the cell which bad never seen a
sunbeam are ablaze with light that
shines from the presence ot tlie celes
Suddenly, iie is awakened by the
touch of the angel's hand. Bewildered
with the radiant light cast upon him,
he hears a voice commanding—"Arise,
gird thyself "—"bind on thy sandals"
—"cast thy garments about thee"—
"follow me." Uncenscious of the in
fluence that is being wielded over
him, he obeys each command, never
once ceasing to gaze with dazzled eyes
at the stranger. Thinking not of the
wondrous events that are passing, but
bewildered and wondering he follows
the angel guide through the iron gates,
as one in a dream, till he finds bim
solf/ree lit the streets of the Holy City,
where, upon the morrow, the fanatical
populace will clamor in vain for their
In these times of ours, we have no
visible angelic visitations, ho path way
of light reachingfronveartfl to heaven,
with augel bands passing to ami fro,to
guide us, by their heavenly influence,
safely through life's perilous journey.
Hut we erring ones of humanity exer
cise a mighty influence over those
about us, or "sadder far than death*"
"Many a shaft al random sent,

And many a word at ramlmn wpoken,

as well might we strive to gather the
sands of the seashore, as well strive to
hind the free winds, or stop the wild
flashings of Niagara, as to prevent the
unconscious power that each moment,
is swaying our destiny. Long after
we sleep under the sod of the valley,
the chords which our unconscious fin
gers have touched will vibrate. This
inlluence of ours may be a harp of
sweetest melody, making glad the
heart of tho world, or it may cause
only discord, and awaken the passions
of mankind to tempestuous strife and
hatred, just as the possessor wills. "It
is like the rod of Moses, that was ci
ther an instrument of woe or a pana
cea to banish evil from the land, as
the inspired will of its grand master
determined." Many years may flow
into the ocean of eternity ere we find
that our course upon the tide of life
casts any light or shade upon those
around us. It is, as the poet thinks,
like standing upon the green sward to
shoot an arrow into the air—wo watch
its upward Sight till it cleaves the sky,
but so swift is its fall that we know
not its resting place. We search in
vain, giving it up as lost; but long,
long afterwards in our wanderings we
find the lost shaft, still unbroken, in
an aged oak. Or we breathe a song
into the air—it falls, we know not,
where; but long after we find it in the
heart of a friend.
It is thus with our influence for good
or evil. We may lie unconscious for
years, and may be forever, of the pos
sibility of our having cast a pebble
into the sea of humanity, whose ever
enlarging influence may circle into
the misty realm of the future.
Surroundings show themselves in
all the vast productions of the mind.
Violets cannot bloom upon Mont
Blanc's summit af eternal snow, and
had Burns been born on the coast of
Norway, no dobut "Highland Mary"
and the " Banks and Braes of Bonnie
Doom" had been unwritten.
Milton arose to his " starry splen
dor" and sang of a " Paradise Re
gained," while he drank in breezes
that came mingled with the perfumed
breath of flowers, unsurpassed iv Eden
itself. The renowned men whose
praises we celebrate in the loftiest,
strains of harp and song, were sur
rounded in childhood by pure and holy
scenes that cast a divine spell over
them and fashioned their lives into "a
thing of beauty and a joy forever."
The haunts of vice and all kindled
scenes that aiono are known in the
child-life of many, weave into their
lives an unconscious influence that
places them on the side of darkness,
shutting from their gaze the golden
gates and sapphire walls of the city
that hath everlasting foundations.
In the southern part of Andalusia
there stands a beautiful castle. The
hand of Tinio has not marred its gran
deur; not one of its splendid columns
has been displaced; uot an arch of its
colonnades basgiven away. Unharmed
it withstood wars and sieges, and
stands, after the lapse of centuries, al
most as fresh as when from the hand
of the Moslem artist. When its cor
ner stone was laid, a spray of ivy was
planted near it, and now over its mas
sive walls it has creptand intertwined
till the castle seems a thing of life,
venerable and beautiful. May not
that ancient castle, with its ivy-grown
walls, represent the noiseless yet pow
erful Influences of the Sabbath School?
Like the ivy about the castle, its beni
ficunt influence beautifies and strength
ens the sublime and imperishable fab
ric of Christianity. Within its some
times almost obscure walls, immortal
minds are fashioned for the heavenly
palace. Its power is tlie electric cur
rent that plays, unconsciously, in the
great dram of life.
The cynic may smile at the idea aud
the infidel laugh to scorn the noble
intention; but there is many a germ
of genius destined, by the aid of the
Sabbath School, to rise to the pinnacle
of human glory. The thrilling elo
quence of the statesman and the power
that has sometimes moved tlie heart
of a nation, may often be the fruition
of the seed planted there.
May the ivy of Christianity planted
in our Sabbath School soon fill our
lives with its grandeur and crowd out
thfl horrid blemishes of sin and in fi
delity. When the foam of the last
wave of Time shall whiten our heads,
and we have long slumbered in the
city of tho silent, may DO skeptical
utterance hnvo fallen front our lips as
a seed of evil, to take root in the heart
of the listener growing into defiant
Infidelity, But may the unconscious
power that we leave behind he as the
air of Paradise, diffusing blessings and
ascending as a sweet incense on high.
