Mr. Blntner says "the nulin of the homes of the people can not be described. The suffering and destitution id terrible to re late.

Mischievous Whiie the Easter program was being rendered at the Congrega tional Church last Sabbath eve ning, some one or more persons, intent on perpetrating a joke, on the congregation, so impregnated the air in the church with snuff that it affected nearly everyone present. Coughing, sneezing, ruib bing the eyes, while many gasped for breath, seemed to be the fate of nearly all present. If th. was do.ne for a joki by young men, as i« now supposed, then the joke smith is carrying it too far and must in the name of humanity be subjected to an offended law. It •is a pleasure la see you.ng and old enjoying themselves, as they were at the program, but that pleasure should not be infringed upon by the acts of others, mali ciously or even jokingly, inclined, whoever he may be. There is a time to sow "wild oats'" but that can be done without disturbing a congregation in any mode of wor ship. The Journal has always been a friend to the you'ng people and if this was done for a joke wei trust it may be partly over looked for "He that is wi'thowt siln let him cast the first stone." •jpsppppp? *fH. fyJ «.
