It seems that hi? brother, who is
j teaching school had two young boys
under his special charge. On Satur?
day thej ibecame restless and started
across th? monntain to their home
some twenty miles distant. As soon
as Mr. Sullivan leanied that they
were gone he immediately monnted a
horse and started in pursuit of them.
He overtook them about half way up
the mountain almost frozen.
He immediately wrapped them up
in his overcoat and started for home
and before he arrived there he was
frozen unconscious and remained in
-that condition for 48 hours.
It thought at first that he
would speedily recover, but on Mon
day Mr. Sullivan received a wire to
the effect that he was very much
worse. If was a noble act in him to
save the life of the two truant boys at
perhaps the sacrifice of his own, and
the parents of the boys should always
hold his memory in reverence.

A recent issue of the Dioresan
Journal, of the Episcopal Church of j
Southern Virginia, contains an in?

prospects of the church's work at
Coeburn, Va. Coeburn, which has
ar population of 100, composed chiefly
of miners and their families, forms
part of the Parish of Intcrmont,which
also embraces Big Stone Gap, Norton
and other localities within the county
of Wise. Its church building has a
seating capacity of about 80, and at
the services a good choir is in attend?
ance. An attractive and successful
mission was, iu December last, con?
ducted at Coeburn by Itev. R. S. Car
ter, Rector of the Parish, aided by
the Rev. C. F. Smith, of Abingdon,
and much lasting beefit is expected
to result therefrom. The report
shows that a laudable effort is being
made by the church members to es?
tablish a hospital at Coeburn for sick
and injured persons, and that to?

and are infused with a proper spirit
for carrying it on. We hope their

the frequent singing of familiar

Most people like good singing. More

some good musicians and good sing?
