Department' first of all ? We can’t do with

harmonising sermon. It was like balm from
Gilt ad. >iven by the skillful hand of Gilead's
Physician. The church seems delighted
with him, and proves itself pleast d by paying
him quarterly in advance. The future pros
pect is encouraging. Truly vours,

—“Drab Hbo. Chavdoin : Quite a flood
of sunlight came into the country pastor's
home (not parsonage) last Christmas. First,
a barrel of orangts, then turkeys, (mind, 1
say turkeys), and then a box of sundry com
fortables, which made wife and children all

the services of Elder O. C. Powell, of Orange
county, to September, 1875. Elder Powell
labored faithfrilly for the church, but had to

way affect the existing obligations of the
company; on the contrary, it will, weaie
assured, provide nsuni of money to put

is no a| preciable injury fr.-m frost there,
or in Banford Giant. Oranges, lemons,
pine apples, guavas, all right, but tomat
oes and some tender legetables were cut
down. Col. Hart, of Palatka, thinks that
the fruit on bis grove opposite that city
on the east side of the river, is not in
jured. He had large fires built near the
grove the night after the freeze, and the
up-river boats report seeing such tires all
along the river that night.

then occasioning excruciating pain. I tried an
invalid chair, air cushions an uriuala, and in

the use of his limbs, and Is consequently con

in lifting and washing the bed-linen, un<l scarce

and knowing it to be entirely safe. I would not
risk changing it for any consideration I would
advise all who contemplate getting an Invalid
i Bed to buy yours. I know the result wilt be sat
