On Sunday night week ago, the Presbyterian Church was filled with an intelligent and sympathetic audi ence of people from both denominat ional ehurehps. to liefen *r> «« „.i,i_ by a Jady missionary from Egypt. The address was mainly a history of her life, with some account of the re ligious belief of the native Christians of her people in Syria.

The story should be told in all the churches. Our peach growers are generally ex ercised about the difficulty in keeping their trees from dying from the yel lows. This disease is becoming very prevalent, and is certain death to a peach tree. One man is inclined to think the time will soon come when we can not grow peaches at all. others think a bountiful use of potash in one form or other will prove the panacea for all the ills of the peach tree. Farmers who are not rich and need a good income, must adopt a new sys tem of farming. Corn and wheat alone will not do, “the eggs must not be carried in one basket.’’ Some nice berries, apples, cherries, etc., some truck, a few lambs, much good but ter, in addition to some grain to sell, will help the.bank account, or pay off the mortgage. Some men are too good for this world. They should pray to be taken away—translated as Elisha of old, to realms beyond the skies.

Blaine tho statesman, the scholar, the patriot, the enthusiastic choice of the millions, will probablv have to aive wav win. this man for a Democrat and a Free Trader. Oh, consistency, thou art a jewel! But where is Mr. Curtis’ con sistency? He is opposed to bossisui, yet he would set up something nearly or quite as bad—a minority dictation. He will bolt because a small faction could not force Senator Edmunds upon the Convention. He fears Mr. Blaine will not favor Civil Service Reform. Is not the tariff a better cry, and of far more importance to the country? 1 f there are any Curtises in Cumber* land, we hope they will move over into New York City and vote with the Democrats. Every Republican in our town is heart and soul for the whole ticket. An Oil City, Pa., dispatch says: "A six-year-old boy named Stilzer, om Fri day night last, complained of some thing hurting him in his throat. He was taken to a doctor, who saw noth ing, but, as the boy insisted something was hurting him, the physician used ililaters and a laryngoscope and de tected a small object as low down as was possible to go without entering the stomach. After great difficulty the abject was extracted, and proved to be \n ordinary lath nail.
