reason. Our subscribers who receive the

Rev. Grler Hlbben arrived In this place
last week on his way homeward from Prince
ton College, having Just graduated from the
Theological department of that Institution.
During his brief stay he preached three ser
mons, one Friday evening, another Sunday
morning and a third In the evening. All
through his years at college the people of
Hlllsboro nnd vicinity have taken a deep
Interest In the gifted young man.aud that
that Interest had not abated was shown by
the large congregations which greeted hlra
and gave rapt attention to his every utter
ance. A man of finer faculties, or better
adapted for the work of tho ministry, Is sel
dom seen as the eloquent, logical and power
ful discourse of Sunday fully proved. Mr.
Hlbben comes from a brainy family and for
that reason much has been expected of htm.
His thorough training has given him an ex
cellent command of loglo and language, and
his enunciation Is not less distinct than bis
reasoning. On Monday morning he left for
his home In Peoria, 111., where he will spend
a short vacation. Then he will be called to
oneof tho first churches In Bt. Louis to fill
the pulpit of an able divine who goes to
Europe for the summer. The young preach
er seems, endowed with physical strength
aLdavlgor and energy that will most cer
tainly win for him all the honor f hlsoall

Dr. Dennis Callahan died at his home In
Hlllsboro, Thursday morning, May 6th, after
a continued Illness. From the first stroke of
paralysis, which occurred In 1881, his health
gradually failed until the second, a few
weeks ago, whloh waa speedily followed by
death. Noonesav a man of remarkably
strong constitution could have battled 'so
successfully agalnst'the ravages of a fatal
disease. Bo thoroughly was bs acquainted
with human Ills that be faithfully diagnosed
his own case, and told his wife all the, de
velopments that raljtht be expected In tbe
course of his Illness.
He attended a medical college In Cincin
nati in 1850, and afterwards practiced his
profession six years tn Hlgglnsport, Brown
county, O. He then entered the ministry,
and remained In the itineracy for eleven
years. His health failed at the close of the
war while be was upon the Lynohburg cir
cuit, and he was compelled to abandon tha
work. During the war he was a member of
tbe Christian Commission, and served his
calling earnestly and well. Twice be was
disabled by overwork and waa sent home-
once from l'lltsburg Landing and ogrln from
Nashville. After the war he took up the
practice of dentistry In Hlllsboro,and gradu
u ally drifted into tho practice of medicine,
whloh he had steadily followed for sixteen
years at the time of his death.
As a practicing physician he was widely
known, and as u man among his fellow-men
be was highly esteemed. He was In every
respect a gentleman. His Jovial, good na
ture made friends everywhere, and his ene
mies were few. His disposition was thor
oughly honest He detested shams, and
wealth won no rcspeot from him. His
kind face was of tener seen among the unfor
tunate sufferers In tho homes of the poor
than In the dwellings of the rich. A great
heart which beat In full sympathy to tho
wants of humanity Is stilled forever. The
tomb has closed upon a man whose life was
spent In ministering to the needs of bis fel
lows. As softly as the light breeze played
amoug tbe swaying boughs his life passed
out and the noble spirit flitted from the bed
of pain to the grand abodes of Immortality.
Tbe funeral services wore conducted by
Revs. Ketcliara and Loyd In the M. E. Church
Friday at 2 p m , nnd were very largely at
tended. The following memoir was read on that

been uniformly a valuable and aealooa oc
laborer In all measures and enterprise de
signed with a view toward developing fruit

Btata and oounty. His political vlewa and
sentiments harmonize with the formula of
tba Democratic party, and he cast his first

name to be brought before the Cincinnati
Conference at Us session In Hlllsboro, In
1833, was admitted and stationed at Sinking
Spring, whero he remained two. years. His
subsequent appointments were Baena Vltta,
Winchester, (two years) West Union, Mos
cow, New Lexington (two years) and Lynch
burg (two years).
He waa universally regarded as a good man ,
a sensible preacher and safe pastor. His
name Is embalmed and lives In the memo
ries of those whom he served.
His health falling, he was superannuated
at the conference held at Ureenfleld In 1801.
While his pbysloal condition forbade his
public speaking, It was yet sufflolent to war
rant his return to his former avocation,
which he did nnd for sixteen years he went
in and out before the people of Hlllsboro as
a practicing physician. .
A severe stroke of paralysis, occurlng Sep
tember id, 1881, disabled him from very ac
tive work, though patronsoften sent for him
to pretorlbe an formerly.
Years of suffering gradually reduced his
strength until finally he gave up all active
work as a physiolaa. A second stroke of
paralysis followed, after whloh he lingered
awhile, when death oame to his relist. He
has gone to bo with father, mother, two
brothers, four sisters, on Infant son and an
Infant daughter who had preceded him to
the paradise of God's children.
In all his lonir vaars of sufferlns he was
careful to suppress every thought and utter
anoe of Impatience and of murmuring,
often saylng"lt Is all right." He frequently
wished he could preaoh again. Rev. James

The physicians of Hlllsboro met In Dr.

to take some action on the death of Dr. Cal

tee on resolutions was adopted :
Tho resident physicians of tbe town of

han. It Is certainly strange (as was stated
on a similar occasion before) that among the
small number of our profession In this place
death should be bo frequent, and certainly
should Impress us all with tbe Importance
of the admonition, 'Be ye also ready." Dr.
Callahan evidently had whatever advanced
age, long experience, natural ability, liberal
education, accumulated public honors, a
spotless private and Christian cbaraoter, and
a firm religions faith snould give, to render
hlra au object of Tespect and admiration not
only with members of onr profession, but
Tltli all who knew him.
He, after a life of sixty-six years, the
greater part of which was devoted to the
public good and relief of his afflicted fellow
mortals, without compensatory remunera
tion, has at length gone to his restful, free
and blest. Mo acta of ours are necessary to
his peace, but we fael that U.ls due to oar.

ration and esteem by the following:

It ia still at tbe old plaoe in the town hall, but
whether or not be will atay there bo has not

are in favor of tbe office being kept in tbe

from Mr. Mackerley's efforts to secure other
rooms, it seems ho does not favor keeping the
office where it is, bnt would rather locate in
some other room, probably whero rent wonld
