The CongregatlODalistg were favored with an ideal day for their annual har vest borne service on Sunday, and A large audience was the result. Every seat In the body of the house was taken, the galleries also being called Into use. The church was very simply but tastefully decorated with the fruits of the harvest. The service was a most harmonious and beautiful one. Interesting letters from the children who had raised the potatoes were read by Miss Susie Scudder. There were also recitations by Miss Mabel Tay lor, Miss Jessie Taylor, Harley Peck and Paul Wolcott. The choir rendered an appropriate opening anthem, and Miss Fannie Scudder sang a solo. Bev Mr Barker's address was In the form of an illustrated sermon for children, which in terested them deeply, and held the close attention of the elders as well. A brief address in opening was made by the su perintendent, A. P. Smith, who also pre sented to Master William L. McArtbur an Oxford Bible for raising the most po tatoes. A dozen or more barrels of po tatoes and apples will be sent to some worthy charity. REV MB JAMES SPEAKS ON TEMPERANCE- The church was again filled to over flowing in the. evening when Rev J. H. James, secretary of the Connecticut Tem perance Union, gave his illustrated lec ture on the "Factors in the Drink Prob lem." Mr James is a very interesting speaker -and closely held the attention of his audience through the entire lecture. The pictures thrown upon the canvass added force to his words and must have brought conviction to his hearers that al cohol is a dangerous plaything and alco holism the damnation of a very large per cent of the ruined lives. Kev Mr James is doing a noble work for the cause of temperance and is always heard with pleasure by the people here, as was attested by the exceeding flattering au dience that greeted him Sunday evening. OLD JIM, THE SOUTH BE IT All CREAMERY H0SSE. He was only a horse, old Jim, and a buckskin, ."the homeliest beast," so mother said when we talked of buying him, "the homeliest beast that ever liv ed, and probably as treacherous as home ly." He bad Zebra (striped) legs and a stripe down the back bone. But he had fine knee action and a good eye, and he came to live at Sunny Crest for better or for worse. The first thing he said when he got into his new stall was to the effect that if there was anything to eat he wanted it, and the demand never varied. I don't believe a horse can do the work of a span with a small ration or with a poor digestive capacity. I never believ ed it, and the .demand seemed rational and was acceded to. But the threat that accompanied it, the glaring eye and lift ed heel I did not like. He waa thin and seemed grateful for his oats, and by de grees sympathy, which the proverb says is akin to love, got the better of my fear. One morning as my hand touched the stable latch I was startled by a neigh so keen and shrill that it sent the blood tingling to my fingers. I began again to fear my new charge, and answered him soothingly as I put the grain in his man ger, watching meantime for the flash of that hind foot. But it did not come and the glare had left his eye ; neither ever showed itself again on any occasion. In stead there was the eager eye and alert ear and arched neck that I soon learned meant affection for me. Always after ward, whether in street or stable, coun try or city, he would speak up when he saw or heard me, compelling a kind word and pat in reply. When I went about him be often whinnied in an undertone to me, asking in a whisper if it were not nearly noon, or time for supper, or if I bad an apple about ready for him, and he always got what he wanted, the scamp 1 He was one ot those short-backed, clean-limbed quadrupeds with four good feet under him and knew how to start a load and bow to haul it any distance, and he never shirked whether single or double. When beside another horse he made it his rule to be the better of the two al ways, and no horse could step so high, haul so much, and do so much pretty stepping when the traces wefe slack. Women and children soon found Jim to be as kind and trusty as an ox and would take him anywhere. One trait waa his which would have preserved him sound until 40 years old he knew how to take care of himself, and on being stripped af ter a day of hard work in harness, he would lie down In his tracks and roll over three or four times. When he rose he always shook himself like a big dog, and then be would trot into the barn as fresh as if it were morning. But poor old Jim! He did not live to spoil his splendid rec ord. One day he returned, after hauling away a big load of butter, and ate his noon ration of oats. Little did I consider that could be, the last time I should feed him, or I would have lingered longer to stroke that glossy neck. The booming of heaven's artillery was beard beyond the western hill. Soon It came over and sped hi rattle and roar across the valley a mid-summer shower suddenly, upon us and soon past. But onward with the hurrying fleecy hosts went the soul of old Jim, if good horses have souls, as their eyes almost prove. . Jim fell in the battle that day, Juty 30, and never did a truer and more gallant charger meet fate.. As the flames con sumed what remained of my pride I ask ed myself whether on that last drive had unduly urged my lost champion,and my conscience made me happy by a neg ative reply. Not a blow and not a harsh word bad been given. It may seem fool ish to some, but to me the remembrance was a great comfort. Unquestionably horses may be governed, absolutely gov erned, by sympathy and appreciation. Farm Journal. THE BEWTO WB SATOOS BAXX.
