Since our last letter another Christmas-tide has passed away, and it seems hard to realize that we have entered another year, yet the annual festivities of both families aud churches assure us “the past is in the eternal past. “How swift they go,— Life’s many years. With their winds of woe And their storm of tears; Aud their darkest of nights, whose shadowy slopes Are lit with the tlashes of starriest hope; And their sunshiny days, in whose calm heavens The clouds of tho tempest the shadow of the gloom.” Mr. Ham.

The Sunday School and Missionary Anni very of Grace Lutheran Church, of Westmin ster, which was held in the lecture-room on Sunday night last, was a very enjoyable affair and .creditable to the school and ah engaged in getting it up. The room was filled to over flowing. The main feature was the presenta tion of class designs by seventeen of the nineteen classes of the school, each design being presented with a brief introduction by a member of the class, and appropriately commented on more at large by the pastor, Dr. Kuhns. The following is a list ot the designs presented, though not in their regular order: * , The stable, &c., where Christ was born; three wise men from the East, star, &c.; bap tism in Jordan; the shepherd and the sheep, three scenes; clinging to the cross music, “Rock of Ages;” the prodigal’s return; Christ’s lamentation over Jerusalem: the ten virgins—five wise and five foolish; Christ and the woman of Samaria at the well of Sychar; wine is a mocker; gates ajar; the voyage of . life—music, “Out on the Ocean Sailing;’ Noah’s ark; the widow’s mite; feed ray lambs; fortitude and constancy; the light house.

After • the formalities of the evening yerp dispensed r with and after the guests had spent a pleasaqt time, dinner was .announced, which was serv ed in excellent style, menu being unsurpassed. . After partaking of the choice viands in a , bountiful manner, the guests repaired to the I parlor when the acme of enjoyment came. Intesesting games, charades, &c., were in > dulged in freely. The “heroes” came off | more than conqueror while the “fijd !pajd I went a begging. The excellent music render ed by Miss Jennie Bixler and her brother, , upon the piano apd violin, was a feature of the evening ns well as the duets sung by the .’ Misses Slingluff Refreshments were served \ later, embracing all the delicacies of the sea -1 son,and over the tempting ices and cakes the guests held high revel while the luscious trop ’ ical fruits, wßch were in abundance,were en joyed midst flashes of wit and merriment; in fact the whole affair was characterized by an 2 air of elegance and culture, suitable to the occasion, whilst the fair hostess did the honors with her characteristic grace.

New Year evening Miss May Nicodemus entertained a number of her friends at a din ner party. Although the day was very disa . greeable quite a large number was present, s All seemed in good spirits and as soon as e housed seemed to forget outside life. An ex e cellent dinner was served about 4 o’clock, to which all did ample justice. Turkey, oysters, T chicken, slaw, sweet potatoes, and a host of j’ good things rapidly disappeared, and when the plum pudding and pies came the mincing began. After dinner all sought the parlor and enjoyed some excellent music, both vocal and instrumental. Some engaged in various 7, games. The merry game “Old Maid” was a u lively one, and it was amusing to see how fearful each one was of being the “old tnaid ; ” One gentleman got it three times. A social j. evening was spent. A table of all sorts ol I, confectionery was partaken of late in the evening. About 11 o’clock the company dis a persed, all agreeing they had enjoyed them- J selves and each other muchly.

Miss Mattie Lee Price, the Georgia electric girl, gave an exhibition of her powers here on Monday and Tuesday nights last, at Odd Fel lows’ Hall. She is about the average size for her age —nearly 15 years —rather pretty and robust and healthy. Her manager explained that there was nothing peculiar about the child except that her hair, which is a pretty brown, sometimes changed to red at night. After a few introductory remarks, by invitation some ten or a dozen young men went on the stage to test their strength against the power of the firl. One after another they attempted to old a short hickory stick steady, but the young girl, with only the palms of her hands against the ends, managed to force them around the stage. The next test was the holding of an ordinary chair against their breasts, which she bore down in spite of their efforts to hold it steady. She then lifted in a chair, with her palms against the hind legs, a young man weighing about 170; afterwards she lifted three, whose combined weight was about 475 pounds, in the same manner. Four of them then attempted to hold a billiard cue steady, but, with the palm of her hand against the butt end, she hustled them about, and finally landed them in a heap on the chairs they had vacated. Several tried unsuccess ■ fully to bear to the ground the cue, which she held in her hand, and another had an um brella forced from his hand. This closed the exhibition of the electric girl, whose rare power was a mystery to the audience. The London Mystery was a great mystery to those who knew nothing of the illusion. To most of the audience it was a living woman, with only head, shoulders, waist and arms. She laughed, talked, raised herself up, and swung herself, while the audience stared in wonder. Lisbon Items.

Our community has lost in the demise of Mr. Shriver one of its most worthy and respected citi zens. He was a man of sound judgment, and his good counsel and advice was sought by many. Though apparently indifferent in his manner, an acquaintance with him commanded admiration and respect. As a husband and father he was affec tionate and kind; as a friend and neighbor he was ever ready to lend a helping hand, and as a Chris tian he lived a consistent and devoted life, as was evinced in his last moments: that though he walked through the Valley of the Shadow of Death he feared no evil. His remains were interred in the Lutheran Churchyard at Emmittsburg, and were followed by a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends, to pay their last tribute of respect to their departed dead. Onr loss is his eternal gain. Harney, Md , Jan. 8,1885. N. E. D. Y BIG SMASH DOWN in PRICES. FIVE THOUSAND DOLL AES WORTH OP OUR STOCK Wll.t. BE SOLD REGARDLESS OP COST.

Female weakness of all kinds, impure blood, malaria, chills and fevers, and, in fact, all cases requiring an Iron Tonic, unhesita tingly recommend it as the best. Dr. Wm. M.

F. Shorb, of Littlestown, Adams county, Pa., has practiced medicine for 38 years, and says: “1 have been selling a con siderable quantity of your Iron Tonic and Blood Purifier at my drug store, and it has gained a good reputation as a tonic, and its gales are increasing daily.
