Wednesday morning as Presiding

by Rev. J. A. Riason, several others

A f-'e&thried llnmorlft.
Parson Kiner, of tbe Geneseo News,
has mide a discovery concerning the
feathered tribe, and he thus enlightens the
Tbe Lumorist of the bird family, all nn
conscio isly to himself, no doubt, is the
oriole. This brilliant little rogue's oft
repeated taunt is "right here, right here?"
He says it as plain as ever quail said
"Bob White." Now, when he says "right
here," just go and look for him. We have
looked lor our oriole who has a nested
mate in one of those ancient maples across
from our barn, till the back of our neck
had a crick in it, and a cataract had a
notion t) move into our eye, and divil tbe
baporth av him could we see. And all
the time he kept saving "right here 1 right
here!" We felt sure he was laughing at
us. Th only time-one can see an oriole
is when be flits like a flash of flame from
one tree to another. But what pretty
fellows t ley are 1 It is a wonder that
some of the good sisters don't have them
shot to stick on their bats!
An Uoiqne Affair.
The young people's association of the

strumental music was famished by Mrs.
Frank Robinson, and a number of selec
tions rendered by a "dwarf quartette"
composed of the Misses Margaret Stewart,
Sadie Dart, Mamie L?e and Blanche Cle
land. There were also some recitations
g ven by Miss Jessie Bogue in "Mother
Goose" costume, and instrumental music
by Miss May Walker, and a very agree
able evening spent by all.
Eclipse or the Moo-.
This evening tbe moon will rise in
eclipse at five minutes to 8 o'clock, b ut
the shadow will for the greater part have
already passed away and it is only in
eastern countries and at her antipodes

which will begin at 35 minutes past 10 on
Nov. 15 next. There will be two solar

A EEa SICE PASSENGER,
On the Of ear., cares little about a storm. He Is posi
tively indifferent whether he is washed overboard
or not. But, at t right by a wineglassfnl or two
of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, he feels renewed
interest in his personal safety. This fine correc
tive neutralizes in brackish water often com
pulsorily drank on shipboard, to the grievous detri
ment of health the pernicious Impurities which
give rise to disorders of the stomach, liver and
bowels. To the mariner, the tour'nt. tfae western
pioneer and miner, the Bitters is invaluable as a
means of protection against malaria, when its
seeds are latent In air and water. To the effects
of overwork, mental or manual, it is a most relia
ble antidote, and to tbe debilitated and nervous,
affords great and speedily felt relief and vigor
