The Dedicatory Ceremonies of the new M, E. Church were very imposing, The dedication of the Methodist Episcopal Church Sunday last was a great success. The discourse in the morning by Dr. Washington Gardner on Character building was a masterly effort, stimulating the young to heroic endeavor and evidently arousinc a ue termination in parents to pay for the handsome structure which had been erected to assist the youth in Character lmilding. hen the amount required to cancel indebtedness was announced it appeared like quite an undertaking but it was soon eviuent that there had been some previous planning a9 large subscriptions began to come in with surprising rapicity and during the morning service nearly the entire amount was pledged. In the afternoon a stirring sermon was preached by Rev. J. Stanstield, of Port Huron, in which the supreme love of God toward man was clearly portrayed, at the conclusion of which the people acain maniiested their an preciation for the privilege of giving. With constantly increasing enthusiasm the Hood tide was readied in the even ing when notwithstanding the goodly size of the building, many could no't gain admittance. Dr. Gardner gave another very able discourse on the Supremacy of God's law and the greatness of his love for man. Alto gether it was a notable day for Yale and a happy people who at its close united in singing the Uoxology. That people will pay to help along a cood cause is evident though tho times are hard. It was apparent that not only the members but all present had resolved "to see the enterprise through" and money was given cheer fully and liberally to compass that result, and a project, which in view of the hard times seemed to involve some risk, proved a pronounced success. Of the entire amount pledged the ladies assumed and paid quito a portion of it and it is a record to their credit that when the ladies earnestly undertake paying a church dett they always succeed. Ministers lrom abroad were present as also pastors of the village churches. Some description of the new M. E. church may be interesting to our read ers. The old building was 2Sx48 feet with an old style tower and spire rising in tront. Ihe trame work was left and on the north was added a wing L'Sxju teet connected with tho audito Hum by folding doors which enables the two to be thrown together, this new part is used as a chapel room and has a gallery above occupied by the singers' seats. On the south side of the auditorium is built an alcove 3x18 feet and 12 feet high, occupied by the pulpit and rostrum. The church will seat 21)0 people exclusive of chairs and chapel. The circle ceiling is beauti fully frescoed, the work of W. li. Saville and Frank Newell. Alfred Youngs did the painting both inside and outside. The whole is an artistic piece of work and a credit to the artists. The basement is underneath tho new part and 6ame size. The fur nace is placed here and furnishes the church with a grateful warmth through the large registers. Connected with this is a complete and perfect system of ventilation. The outside of the church is neatly painted and has a larger tower and the roof of the en tiro building now has a pitch. A beautiful largo stained glass window occupies the front. Altogether the church is a model building and much praise is due the contractor and build er, Henry Pearce, who has labored unceasingly both night and day the past month towards tho completion of the building. Tho projector of the scheme for the new church, Hcv. J. F. II. Ilarrison.also should receive his just meed of praise as it is more than prob able that we should haye considered the old church good enough for twenty years more if he had not in spired his people with different ideas. The committees too, who havo faith fully done their work, will receive their reward and ail who so liberally contributed towards paying for tho new building, the cost of which was about $ 2,000.

Killed by the Special Engine and Car Known as Peggy, Monday Afternoon at about 4:30. Her Head Severed from tho Cody and One Leg Broken. RAILROAD COMPANY NOT TO BLAME. NKITIIKK IS IT TIIK FAl'J.T OK ANY OF T1IK KMPLOYKS, SO IS TIIK VKHDICT GIVEN AT TIIK INiVKST ON TUKSDAY. The most shocking and horrible ac cident that the people of Yale have ever witnessed occurred here Monday afternoon about half past four. The job of taking care of and lighting the switch lamps was given to Edward Frye and it has been the custom of the fam ily to send out their deaf and dumb daughter to put the lights up. It seems she has had several narrow escapes from the cars, and it is rather strange that she continued going. On this par ticular night, the rain was coming down in torrents and it was unfit for her to be out. However, she had put up the lights and started on the track for her home, which is just opposite the North Street crossing, when the long blast of an engine whistle sounded and then two long and two short blasts for the crossing. Of course the girl did not hear the whistle, neither did the en gineer, Mr. limes, see her until within o or 10 rod9. Warning was quickly given but no attention was paid by the girl and air brakes were immedi ately applied. The train was the en gine and car known as the Peggy, which had been along the lino to in spect the overhead wires to see if all was in accordance to law. The return trip from Port Huron to Saginaw was now being made with no stops but for water and crossings. The air brake hose projecting from tho pilot caught the girls dress and the body was dragged along until the engine could be stopped at North street crossing about in front of her home. On back ing up the heart-rending spectacle came into view of tho bodv with head completely severed and leg crushed and bruised. She was immediately carried into her home, where a crowd soon collected, the news of the acci dent rapidly Hying through tho whole town. A jury was summoned by Justice Ilisey, consisting of A.W.Ferguson, K. U. I.eecher, K. M. Lothian, John Illack, Thomas Ilolden and Wallace I'. Hallentine and an inquest held Tuesday morning with the verdict as follows: "Elizabeth Frye came to her death by being struck by an engine on Flint & Pere Marquette rail road through no blame of the II. It. Co. or any of its employes." The body was taken in charge of by Undertaker (iough and kind friends "prepared the body for burial. The funeral was held at tho M. P. church on Wednes day at 1 o'clock P. M. tho services conducted by Kev. Windrem. Two other children of Mr. and Mrs. Frye, deaf mutes, were at school in Flint and the railroad company consider ately sent them passes to come to the funeral of their sister. Elizabeth Frye was born in township of Wawanosh, county Huron, Canada, November 4th, 1865 and was the second daughter of Edward Frye. This accident should and will be a warning to people to keep their children off the railroad track, although it may not bo a simi lar case, this one being a deaf mute and of course not responsible, but all know that these accidents occur when people have all their senses, and a great many boys of this town are too careless in playing about the tracks. We don't want another accident of this kind. Dissolution Notice.
