Joile%, Ill., Special.--A pitched
battle, in which prayer books and
broken furniture were the missiles,
took place in the Slavonic Roman
Catholic church here Sunday, when
the police arrived to quell the dis
turbance the belligerents turned
from each other and united their
forces against the officers: The
fight, which grew out of factional
differences, resulted in no serious
bodily harm jo any of the 2,000
men, women ai~d children who
were in the church when it began,
but the panic among the affrighted
women and children was the cause
of severe bruises. Bloody and lac
erated faces and hands were evi
dences of the fierceness of the con
test and the protests of Father
Kiar and others were unavailing
to restore peace.
The men had been penned in by
a mob of angry women, wbo peited
the stronger sex with whatsvet
they could lay their hands on. The
men who could fled or jumped
from the windows, and when the
police. arrived they returned to the
assistance of the women. It was
not until the police had drawn
their revolvers and threatened to
use them that peace was restored
and arrests were made.

About two miles out of Pickens
is Bethlehem. Here we were re
minded of an incidentthat occurred
.on a Quarterly Conference occai 1.
ion more than twenty -years ago.
Dr. S. B. Jones was the Presiding
Elder, and Dr. S. P. H. Elwell the
pastor. It was a cold, darkgrain
day, and not more than a dozen of
the faithful were present andthese
were clustered immediately aiound
the pulpit. Just before~ services
began two -godless, dissipated men
of the world from Pickens drov
into the church yard, and entering
they sat about 'midway of -the
ch'irch. Dr. Jones eyed ethiem
closely for a moment or two, and -
then announced his text: "Turi.
ye, turn ye, for why will ye die,
o house of Isreal?" And- sneha
sermon! Though preached at ei
two men Dr, Jones preached a
though he were preachinig to a
thousand. At the 'conclusion of
the aermon 'the door of the church
was opened, and one of the men of
Pickens went forward and gave his
hand to Dr. Elwell the pastor, as
a candidate for church member
ship. The other was amazed and
thought his companion drunk.
Years passed; the first of these
two Joung men was stricken down
with a fatal illness, and beside his
dying bed stood the friend and comn
pai.ion of Bethlehem, rejoicing
with him as he shouted the praises
of his Saviour. For many years
now this man has been in heaven.
Dr. .Jones and Dr. Elwell are also
there. The fourth man still lives
and now fills the place then so ably
filled by Dr. Jones. His friend
and companion on that cold, dark,
rainy Sunday at Bethlehem was
