Mr. Douglass takes the place entirely for the good be may do the company and will do tbe work gratis.

It Waa e Tenng-er Womaa Who YVed tba Flay at the OtafedrraUa Hww Bar bere Came to J the Cradlt The Char acter and IIaim af Barbara rreltrhU. It seems a pity to upset ao pretty a picture as the. cue drawn by Whittier of the aged Rarbara Freitchie waving the stars and stripes over the heads of the rebel hosts as they marched through Frederick, but truth compels the state ment that Barbara only displayed tbe flag after the arrival of the Federal troops, while a younger woman dared the rebels, without, however, being flr4 upon. Barbara's maiden name waa Haner, and aba was) born on Deo. S, 1768, In Lancaster Pa Her fsmUy moved to Frederick:, Ma., when ah was a ohild, snd In 1804 she married John Carper rreitenie. Una of her relatives now Uv ing In Frederick, is, authority for tbe following statement: "Barbara was .Intensely patriotic, and In September.,. 188s, when, tbe Union soldiers drove the rebels out of Frederick, Barbara manifested her de light by stsnding at her window with a silk flag In her hand., Owing to her ad vanoed age (nearly 98) shs attracted a great deal of attention, both officer and privates breaking ranks to shake her by the hand. For three hours she continued by the window, until, becoming exhaust ed, she was persuaded to oome in and rest' Earlier in tbe dsy a younger wo man had waved a small Union flag from a house in the same street while the rebels wersj passing. She was , not flred upon, however.' "In the excitement following on the retreat of the rebels the two incidents became blended together, snd a resident of the town, writing to Mrs. E. Dt E. N. Sonthworth, treated them as one. Mia, Sonthworth, feeling that she could not do Justice to the theme, wrote, aa ac count of it to tne poet whittier, who, stretching poet's license to the limit penned the well known verses entitled Barbara Freitchie.' "isaroara's noma was situated on West Patrick street on the east bank of Carroll creek. Directly opposite was the town spring, whose waters still bnbbls np as refreshingly as they did through all the years of our bitter strife. Whichever party held Frederick was sure to be rep resented by its soldiers at that spring. There during hot summer days they would lounge In tbe shade of Barbara's stoop. If it were the boys In bine, she was very gracious and would come down and lend them her tumblers or her dip per and give them biscuits, but not so tbe Confederates, whom she would drive from her premises or order from her portico with a majettio motion of her cane, her great age protecting her from Insolence or harm.. "Barbara died on Dee, 18, 1869. at the age of 96 years and 15 daya She was buried beside her husband In the German Reformed church yard of Fred erick. " "In 186$ a flood did a great deal of damage, to property on West Patrick street, and . Barbara s house was eon demned and torn down to widen Carroll creek. The carpenter who raced the house made canes of the balustrade and sold tbem. One was sent to General Grant as a sonvenir. "After Barbara's death there was a sale of a portion of hey furniture, and it was my pleasure a few years since to sea a bedstesd owned by her in . an uphol sterer's store. . Old fashioned, severely plain and simple, I should have passed It a hundred times without noticing it had my attention not been called to it by the storekeeper, who told me he had purchased it from a Frederick dealer upon a sworn affidavit as to its genu ineness. The bed on which she died is now owned and need, by a great-great-nephew. Her sideboard Is the property of another nephew. "The historic silk flag is In the pos session of the niece' who stood upon that memorable coos, si on by Barbara's side while the latter held it in her hand; also among her priceless treasures this same niece values a .blue china coffee pot, which was the property of Barbara, and from which coffee was served to General Washington when he visited Frederick In 1791. Upon that occasion Washington spent the night at Mrs. Kimbal's hotel, where the City., hotol now stands, and Barbara Freitchie brought her Liverpool china to grace the table. "Whittier painted truthfully when he saidi" "Tha clustered spires of Frederick stand Green walled by tbe hills of Maryland. ' "Singularly enough, the churches are all . grouped together within a stone's throw of each other. Barbara was a member of the German Reformed with Dr. Zacharias as pastor. A few years after the war he was interviewed by some admirers of. Whittier' exqui site linea 'Ah, yes, answered the doctor tenderly, 'I was Barbara Freitchie 'a pastor for nearly 80 years. . I handed her the enp and the . bread. At our com munion service she always partook, as bad been her lifelong habit, standing, and afterward was sure to shake hand cordially with her. pastor.

CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR. Teple tot tbe Wek Boglaalng Nov. BS Comment by Bv. ft. IL. Doyle. Torio. tkms btestdosja aften forgotten. Pa elv, l 86. (a Thanksgiving topic.) This psalm is a tribute to the might? power of God, snd to His wisdom, aj seen in the providential arrangement of the natural world. It recounts many of the beneficent results of God s wiadom. which we often forget, and is therefore an appropriate text for our subject and for Thanksgiving day. It is human nature to forget How easy it is to forget sven the greatest fa vers and ths greatest blessings, whether tbey have been bestowed upon us by God or by man. And although it may appear to be unnatural, how much more readily we forget the blessings snd fa vors of God than even those of men. God charged His people of old with forget fulness and ingratitude above the beasts of the field. "The ox," he said, "know eth his owner, and the ass his master's crib, but Israel doth not know, My peo ple doth not consider." Man ia intelli gent He would be supposed to appreoi ate blessings far above tbe brutes of cre ation, and yet tbey often put him . to shams by their remembrance of kind nesses done to thenj- When Christ heal ed the ton Jepers, only one of the ten re turned to give Him thanka This spirit of forgeffulnf ss was not characteristic of the past alone. It Is as prevalent to day as it ever was. We bave greater cause for remember ing God today than man ever had, be cause God is bestowing upon na more and greater blessings than He ever be stowed upon mankind in the past This Is true temporally and spiritually. Yet for even the greatest blessings we are not careful to thank God as we should. And if we thank Him . inadequately for the great blessings, how. nnlikely it is that we thank Him sufficiently for bless ings which are more common and or dinary. How many are the blessings whloh we forget the blessings mentioned by the psalmist here the blessings that come from God s arrangement of nature His control snd. arrangement of the water, His preservation of life. His sup port of life, His division of time into seasons, . into day and night! Life, health, home, friends, blessings so fa miliar that we fail to appreciate tbem how often we forget to thank God for them I i No blessing that comes from God should be forgotten. He remembers the smallest deed of kindness we perform for Him, or in the name of Christ Can we do less than Imitate God Himself? He should be our example here as In other thinga God forgets nothing, not sven a cup of cold water. Let ns bars no forgotten blessings. Bible Readings.

Beyond Computation. ; It is the work of the prophet to make known the future. Prophesying as to some things is nothing more than sim ply declaring the truth of the Bible. From wicked Pharaoh down to deepica ble Judas no better prophecies of the punishment of evil can be found any where. God's word is eternally true. Happy Is he who believes its sacred teachings and who willingly adjusts his life to the demands of it It causes in convenience to the flesh, but the rewards to the spirit are beyond computation.
