An amusing incident occurred tbe other day that reminded one of the war cloud in the East. Carl Bader, the pop ular market man, had a couple of gob bler?, which he was trying to catch when one of them took wing and flew across the river. Soon after a game cock spied him trenching on his territory and Grecian fashion opened up his war batteries on Mr Turkey at once. The light was hot and furious on his part but the turkey would make a dab at him and getting him in limbo would wipe the earth up with him round and round, but the minute he let go, the cock would return to tbe combat fiercer than ever. At length the turkey seemed to tire of the fun and started to fly back across the river but dropped in mid stream whereat Mr Gamecock seeing him set tle in tbe water seemed to think he had got him at a disadvantage and took wing to pounce upon him, but missed his mark and also dropped into the water. The ice cold bath seemed to cool bis hot blood and he turned tail aDd paddled back to his domain while Turkey pad dled on across tbe water, leaving the Mediterranean between them both on their own ground and neither of them very much to crow over. Was it typi cal? A. B. CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH NOTE8. liev Mr Carter gave it very inspiring discourse, last Sunday, on transforma tion of character by assimilation to type. Jesus Christ is the type. Con formity to type is the law of life. The race of men are slowly evolving, develop ing into the God nature as Christ mani fested it. This is the destiny of man. To that goal tends tbe ever moving mul titudes of humanity. The route, long and tedious, but the result sure and cer tain. GUNNERY NOTES.

The young man that visited the War ner women's hen roost, the other night, had better abandon the practice of wear ing rubbers, as they sometimes stick In the mud and come off, as was the case the other night.

Your corresponpent supposes that.THE Newtown Bek is related to Tne North ern Bee of Russia, which was establish' ed in 1S25 by Gretch and Boulgarine It is interesting to notice tbe fact that on the day when Sebastopol was taken June 18, 1855, that The Bee, officially announced to Europe, "That the war was becoming serious, and that Sebas topol being destroyed, a stronger for tress would be built." We men have some conception of the strength of this fortress, when we reflect that it was be' sieged 328 days, when 874 guns thunder ed upon it ; when in on day 70,000 pro jectiles were thrown into the town, when the Russians lost 18,000 men by the bom bardment alone. The French had dug 50 miles of trenches and 4100 feet of mines before one bastion alone. This war cost the lives of 250,000 men. A congress met at Paris February 25, 1856. There were repre sented at it, France, England, Austria Prussia, Sardinia and Turkey. Russia was represented by Baron De Brunnow and Alexis Orlof. Peace was signed on the 30th of March, 1856. Alexander II, was Czar. Alexander I died March 3 1855. It is interesting to see Europe after 40 years, and notice the attitude ol the powers to day, in the matter of Crete and Greece. Can we say, must we not say with Gladstone, "Shame on the Powers 1" We look nearer home. The fourth of March is past. On it, a new President took the oath of office. On it the 55th congress went out, and the 56th began ; 108 year of our constitutional history, have witnessed the installation of the 25th President, Maj McKinley May great prosperity attend his admin istration as the Chief E xecutive of the American Nation. We must now come still nearer home. This excursion will be pardoned. Bees are not restricted as where they shall get their honey. They must go where the flowers are and when they are in b'oom, or their eff)rts are vain. Warren is a miniature country. Its hills and valleys and lakes and crystal streams, Its men and women and children, constitute a part of the wide domain, our country.

Some are get' ting down and some are getting np May we not hope that the back-bone of winter is broken, and that we shall soon have the privilege of welcoming spring with its ethereal mildness. Rev Mr Bennett preached here in tbe Ecze ill Her Life. Mr. E. D. Tenkins. of Lithonia, Ga. says that his daughter, Ida, inherited a severe case of Eczema, which the usual mercury and potash remedies failed to relieve, year ty year sue was treated with various medicines, external appli cations and internal remedies, without result. Her sufferings were intense, and her condition erew steadily worse. All the so-called blood remedies did not seem tc reach tbe dis ease at all Ontil S.

I tried every known remedy, consulted the best physi cians, visited Hot Springs, Ark., three times, spending $1000 there, besides doctors' bills; but could obtain only temporary relief. My flesh was wasted away so that I weighed only ninety-three pounds; my left arm and leg were drawu out of shape, the muse lei being twisted np In knots. I was unable to dress myself, except with assistance, and could only hobble abont by using a cane. I had no appetite, and was assured, by the doctors, that I could not live. The pains, at times, were so awful, that I could procure relief only by means of hypodermic injec tions of morphine. I had my limbs bandaged In clay, in sulphur, in poultices; but these gave only temporary relief. After trying everything, and suffering the most awful tortures, I began to take Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Inside of two months, I was able to walk without a cane. In three months, my limbs began to strengthen, and in the course of a year, I was cured. My weight has increased to 165 pounds, and I am now able to do my full day's work as a railroad blacksmith." AVER'S The Only World's Fair Sarsaparilla.
