heartily wishes all its readers n happy and
prosperous year. Tho .subscription term
of a good many of our readers expires

is to stop all papers that are not paid

then ever before to give our patrons their

A petition is in circulation asking the
mayor and Hoard of Aldermen to reduce
the rate of water rents so that the income
therefrom will amount only to such a sum
as is necessary to pay the enrrent expenses
ot the water department and that the in
terest on tlio outstanding water bonds be
paid the same as the interest on all other
city bonds and indebtedness is paid. It
suggests that the family rate for each
three months be one dollar and other
rates proportionately low, and that the
highest water rates be 2.1 cents per 1000
gallons and that tho lowest to large con
sumers be 10 cents per 1000 gallons.
Mr. William J. Van Arsdalo of New
York city, who is making the extended
purchases of land in Shelburn, hitherto
mentioned in these columns, says that the
design witli which tho investment is being
made has not been announced, the state
ments which have appeared in various
exchanges being merely surmises. The
various farms purchased contain a total
of between 1200 and 1300 acres and al
though not contiguous all lie on the lake
shore in t he vicinity of the "lover's lane"
and are line pieces of laud.
The new toboggan slide is practically

long and the starting point is about .10
feet above thu level. Those engaged in
this enterprise have made no half-way
work and have erected a capacious wait
ing room which will bii heated at all
times when the slide is open. The slide is
1000 feet long.mid as it is centrally located,
being within half a minute's walk of the
street cars, it will undoubtedly become
very popular. It will bo ready for use as

Tom Million, George Mongeon and Jack
Manning have been arrested on bench
warrants on the charge of aiding and
abetting the prize light which took place
at Thompson's Point in Colchester, on
July 4 last, and were safely lodged in
jail. The amount of bail, which lias not
yet been llxed, will bo decided to-day, but
it is understood that Mongeon is the only
one of the trio who will be able to secure
bail. Warrants were out for these three
men last September but they could not bo
found and that fact will probably have
considerable weight In establishing the
amount of bail.
The children of the Homo were treated
to their annual sleigh rldu Monday
through the generosity of Messrs. Lane oo
Son wlio kindly donated the two big
sleighs Adirondack and Hock Point and
two four horse teams for the purpose.
Tlio little folks manifested tho keenest en
joyment of their riilo and their pleasure
was greatly increased through tho kind
thouglitfulness of Mr. S. Beach who pre
sented each of them with a package of

children must have more than repaid
these gentlemen for their trouble.

The young man who was the subject of
thu remarkable surgical operation de
scribed in another column, under the
heading of "Lighting up a Thigh-bone" is
Mr. George F, Kimball, son of Den. A.
Kimball of South Hurllngloii, and a mem
ber of the sophomore class in tho Univer
sity. Later advices from hint, received by
Ids father, glvo a favorable report of his
condition. Ills mother has gone to Xow
York to help care lor mid comfort him in
tlio hospital, and his physician gives strong
encouragement Hint there will bo a per
manent cure. Tho original Injulry, it may
be added, was tho result, not of a fall, but
of n wrench of the thigh, occasioned by
slipping on an icy place.
Thu manner in which our citizens en
tertained thu largo number ot teachers In
attendance at tho Stale meeting was tho
subject ot much favorable comment
among tlio visitors, and Indeed they seum
ed exceedingly pleased with the way In
which everything pertaining to tho meet
ing passed oIL In connection with the
success of the meeting great credit Is due
to the admirable foresight and untiring
zeal of Principal S. W. Landon, especially
In the management of the local details.
In their reception and entertainment of
tlie visitors the people of this city fully
sustained their reputation for hospitality
and liberality and the teachers undoubted
ly carried away with them pleasant mem
ories of their visit to the Queen City.
Coasting was carried on, Saturday after
noon and evening with a zest yet unequal
led and there was such n crowd at Church
street thut it was difllcult to move about.
In the afternoon the families and guests
of many of our most prominent residents
were coasting and some stylish turnouts
took coasting parties up the hill to coast
down. In the evening the hill was illu
minated and presented a picturesque
scene. The stately trees retained their
mantle of fantastic frost work of this day
previous, and this, with the glare of the
torches rellected in tho gently falling
snow gave the street an aspect ot glitter
Ingbuiuly seldom equalled. Crowds of
enieriy people were out to watch the sport I
and their enjoyment seemed hardly less ,
than that of the punsters i
The lire department was called out Sun
day afternoon about 4:30 o'clock by an
alarm from box which had its origin
in Hie breaking out ot fire in a tenement
house, number 17 Cedar street, owned by
John McKeough and occupied by Theresa
Alalia, Xeurly all tho companies re
sponded, but the lire being small the
Harnes and Star companies who uro
nearest tho spot were able to light it alone,
although the Ktliaus laid a line of hose to
be prepared for an emergency. The Haines
which caught in an upper room were put
out before much damage had been done,
and the goods in the lower looms had been
removed so that little damage resulted
from the water. The upper rooms had
just been finished and tlio lire is supposed
to have caught from a stovo which was
used to dry the plastering.

"Hut Jesus called them unto him, and
said, Yo know that tho princes ot the Gen
tiles exercise dominion over mem, aim
they that aro great exercise authority
upon them. Hut it shall not be so among
jou; but whosoever will be great among
vou. let him bo your minister: and wnoso
ever will bu clnet among you, let him b;
your servant ; even as the Sou of Man
came not to bu ministered unto, but to
minister, and to give his lite a ransom lor
maiiv." .Mat. xx : 2.1-20.
Wnen the mother ot James and John
stood before Christ and besought him to
bestow upon them thu foremost places in
his kingdom, all mankind stood there with
its lulsc greeds and ambitious. And
when Christ called his disciples closer
about him and disclosed to them that
great, fundamental truth of the gospel
the true greatness anil nobility ot lovm
1 service, tho church was there to hear
Jesus pointed out the fact that in the
kingdom of God lie who would be greatest
must bu the servant of all. How this
L'reat truth ot Christianity received mean
nig ami inipressiveness us uttered by the
lips ot Christ. What is Christianity
but unsellish service, the rovealmeitt ot
God's nature in this respect, and its reliec-
1 tiou in ourselves ? And I know ot no
! truth which more needs to be emphasized
at the present time.
. What was therein the sacrifice of
Christ, in thu motive and spirit, thut does
not belomr to vou and mat This is the
religion ot the Cross. Xay, in a sense it is
the religion of nature itself. Each tiling
in tlio world about us seems ordained to
serve others, even at its own expense. Hy
thu same eternal obligation ot love God
gave his only begotten Son lor us. The
last, the supreme, the iiilluito sacrillcu
must bu made because it was necessary
that ll should bo made.
The universal spirit of unsellish love
and service smites most severely that pre
valent idea ot scholarship, which exalts
self-development, thu highest culture of
thu individual. Tho Cross of Christ is
saying to such a man or such a woman,
"Thou art noble thou art base I Hise
up, do something worthy, sillier some
thing for thu sake of thy poor poor lel
lows I" How deeply this truth cuts ; how
it reveals thu power ot sin and solllshnoss
in us. It is tho law of our discipleship,
tho condition of our nieetness for Heaven,
and earth as well. It is the essence of our
Hut this truth is closely allied to anoth
er and roval truth, lie whothus spoke ot
himself ns 11 servant came as a king. There
is equality nowhere, neither in heaven nor
on earth. Theru is a gieatur and a less
among men. There aie men born to rule,
and men whose very blessedness is to be
ruled. Christ recognU'-d this law. Hy it
he raised himself into sovereignty; by it
he would have ills disciples exalt them
in I selves
Notice now how this greatness is to oe
won;' "Whosoever will bo great among
you, let lum be your minister." It was so
with Christ. Here was a new way to get
a kingdom. Who before Christ ever
thought of winning a crown by becoming
a slave. So tho Na.areno proposed to con
quer this hunian raeeiohlinseii. hirangi
as was tlio idea at that time. It is bo hoped
llial wo liavu iiecaiuo suiiiciuuuy laminar
with It so that it Is not l loplan. Alter
nil, It is thu most rational way. Tlie sov
ereignty which Christ came to establish
(mid come in only one way by.tho service
of love. Ilecausu he came to minister and
not to ho ministered unto, therefore hu is
now highly exalted.
And as it was with Christ, so must It be
with His church. In tins spirit of sell-
saenllce and uiiselllhhness Is to be found
the power and intluenco of the church
over 1 bo world. The church Is tlio media-
I tor between the greater and the less
among men. Aiulaswiin mu .Master so
must It bo with his disciples. He who
would bo chief must 'bo thu servant.
When human excellencies and attain
ments centre around self how mean and
contemptible they are, but whe i we put
them Into loving service their truo glory
shines out. In that great day when God
assigns to all their places in His Kingdom,
the llrst shall be, not those of splendid
gifts, attainments or possessions, but thu
humble, self-sacri lining, loving servants
of tho Master. They shall sit down on
the right mid tlio left hand of Him who
through llko service has become King
At the close of this eloquent and appro
priate discourse a congregational hymn
was sung. Huv. J. It. Hlncksjof Montpel
lerthen offered tho Installation prayer,
which was followed with a selection
by tho choir. Thu chargo to the
pastor was delivered by Hov. F.
T. Perkins, and was very earnestly ami
Impressively pronounced. Hev. Mr. Per
kins said, in brief ; Our Master has Indi
cated the work committed to His minis
ters. He came to seek ulid save the lost.
The responsibility which rests upon you
Is tho salvation ot the souls committed to
your care. How can this bo done ? 1. Taku
heed to yourself. You aro not to be saved
by virtue of your olllce, but by maintain
ing a vital union with Christ. 2. Take
heed to tho teaching. The truths cluster
ing nround the cross and centreing in
Christ are the truths to bo relied upon in
this work of human salvation. 3. Seek
the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
Expect much from the inspiration
and illumination of the spirit
ot truth. 4. Continue in the work.
Shrink not. Thu salvation of the souls
committed to your care depends upon you.
Hemember that you are in close contact
with Institutions of learning; with the
other churches of this community; with
the great questions anil moven -tits ol the
day. Have faith simple and absolute in
the truth and spirit of God. He true to I
the Master and to these souis committed
to your care, and so save thysell and them
that hear thee.
The right hand of fellowship was then!
extended to the pastor bv Huv. Edwaul
Hawes, I). I)., of the First Congregational
church of this city. Dr. Hawes spoke of
the personal pleasure it alTonled
him to welcome a pastor to the
imlnlt so closelv allied and in such
closu sympathy with his own : and also
ins gratlllcatlou that the small circle ot
ordained Congregational pastors in Chit
tenden county was now increased to three.
You have come, ho said, addressing the
pastor, to a beautiful place, a fair spot.
and I hopu its outward beauty will be
matched, and more than matched, uy the
desirable and beautiful things you will
Hud in your social Intercourse, and in the
realms of thought and sympathy in which
you will move. We welcome you to our
ecclesiastical councils and to our minis
terial association. We welcome you hope
fully, because of what wo have learned to
day of your spirit. We welcome you, I
may say, with expectation because of
what we have learned of the record of
your work in the past. And especially we
welcome you now. We aro glad to have
one more here who shall tell the "old, old
story." As Dr. Hawes clo-ed his earnest
words, he grasped the new pastor warmly
by thu hand.
The choir and congregation then joined
in singing a hymn, and the exercises
closed witli benediction pronounced by
Nh York Proiltu'u JHurket.
