The Methodlet church was beauti
fully decorated with evergreens, and
the two trees ablaze with liphta and
loaded with sifts was indeed a pleasant
sight. The literary programme con
sisted of an exeroise entitled "Spreead
Wide the News," which was well ren
dered and received many compliments
from those who were qualified to judge
f Its merits. A duet by D. T. Lawton
and Miss Myrtle Lawton was worthy of
especial mention, being well received
by the large congregation. The gifts
were appropriate and the little ones
seemed to be universally remembered
by Santa Claus.
Christmas tree exercises at the Bap
tist Church opened with a song by the
audience and prayer by Rev. J. Merley.
The program was a very pleaaing one
and was presented entirely by the chil
dren of the Sunday school. The main
feature of the whole program was to
bring to the minds ol the little ones
the reasons for celebrating the day.
There were over 200 children who re
ceived presents double the usual num
ber. Many poor families were also
kindly remembered. A well filled puree
was a gift to the pastor. About 300
people were present and many went
away, being unable to find seals. The
church was beautifully decorated, while
at one Bide stood the large Christmas
tree, loaded to its fullest capacity with
Oa ChriBtmas evening at the Christ
ian Church, the children of the Sunday
school rendered their program, "The
Prince of Peace," to the delight of an
audience which thoroughly filled the
house. So well acquainted was each
ne with his part that no prompting
was needed. Perhaps the most amus
ing feature of the exercises, especially
to the juvenile part of the audience,
was Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus at home
and afterwards before the children. It
seems that this famous couple are of
small stature, corresponding with the
average child of ten or twelve years.
After the fruit waa clucked from two
very beautiful trees and distributed,
in wnicn aiBtriDution each child and
young person of the school was hand
somely remembered, with arms full
of presents and faces beaming with joy
the children sang "Glory to God in t he
siignest." lruly tbe evening's enter
winmeot was an exhibition ol "peace
SDU 000 Will,"
The Christmas exerciaes at this
church drew a crowded house, some
being turned away for want of standing
room. The program was opened with
a brief devotional Bervice and then the
Santa Olaus Cantata consisting of three
scenes was rendered as follows:
Scene First. The children were en
gaged in a lively snowball match as the
curtain arose. Then they sang about
ChristmaB and holidays and about Santa
Claus. Some were doubtful, others be
lieved that "Old St. Nick" would come,
and just then they did see him coming
down the road. They all hid except
little "Tottle," who bravely asked if
the intruder was Santa Claus. Then all
the children rushed out and asked for
-all" sorts of presents and for a song.
Kunta Glaus sang a song and mentioned
his workshop under tho ground. Then
the children wanted to see it and were
liromiscd the privilege us soon us Santa
bad visited a poor family in unothor

Christuuis exercises wero hold at this
church Monday evening. A -program
was rendered by the children consisting
of songs and recitations. The church
was neatly decorated for the occasion.
A part of the decoration, and that
which was very attractive to the chil
dren, was a small house in a grove of
small evergreen trees. The roof had
the appearance of being covered with
snow. In the house and lodged in the
trees around It, was found something
for each of the children of the Sunday
school, also presents for a number of
older ones.
The exercises were opened with song
and prayer. The program consisted
of songs and recitations by the children,
and the distribution by Geo. Grizzle
and a number of children whom he had
selected for his assistants. We think
all present spent a pleasant evening,
and the children seemed specially de
lighted with all tho exercises of the

One of the regulations at the new
Congressional library in Washington is
that visitors must carry no parcels into
the building. So says the Post, of that
city, and then goes on to rein t an amus
ing occurrence: A rather tall, broad
shouldered young wotnnn arrived at th
door of the library, having in her hand
a neat brown paper package. "No bun
dles are alowed inside the building,"
said tflie attendant. "You must, leave it
here till you come out." The young
woman objected. The man said it waa
the rule. The young woman said it war
absurd. The man was firm. He must
obey- orders. The yotmg woman hesi
tated; then she undid the parcel, hung
several pairs of black hose over her arm,
handed the man the paper, and said:
There, you may keep that until I
come out."

There can be no doubt that the three
oldest slaters in the United States
possibly in the whole world are some
ludian women in .San Diego county, in
southern California. The women are
Se-mui-luh (ineaiiiiig peaceful), Ning
lio (meaning black-eyed) anil Tc-inea-eal
(nteauingsharp at a bargain). Their
eumbiiied ages are iflf'J years. He.mul
lull is tho eldest; she was 103 years old
1 i;isi June. Niug-lio is 1U0 and Teiiiescal
is the juvenile nf the triu. She was llu
some time last summer. They are rem
nants of the Salioha tribe, who were n
part of the thoiuunds of friendly sav
ages known in t'aliforuia as the Mis
sion Indians, from the fact that they
voluntarily went under the fostering
care of the Franciscan missionaries In
the latter part of the eighteenth cen
tury and gave their children to the mis
sionnries for instruction. These old
women are able to speak n few words
in England, but their talk la a jargon
of Spanish and Indian. Each of them
has several score of descendants, says
the Snn Francisco Cull.
There is not the least doubt among
the people in southern California who
have given any attention to these un
commonly old slaters as to their ages.
That Is a matter of record in the musty
old registers in the archives of the mis
sion at .San Gabriel, in Los Angeles
county; also in a church census taken
in 1810 and now in the mission of Gua
dalupe, at the City of Mexico, where
nearly all the records of the California
missions were taken upon disestablish
ment of the ltoman Catholic mission!
in 1832. There is a record of the bap
tism of Ramon Agullan, a Saboba In
dlan, under the charge of the mission
nt San Diego. The record shows that
Ramon was the father of 14 children,
The first was born in May, 1780. Sc.
mul-lah was born in 1704 and Nlng-lio
was the seventh child and born In 1709,
while little Temescal came in lsul.

Bishop Huntington once went down
to a town in Connecticut to perform o
marriage ceremony, which had a ludi
crous nnle for him, says the Washing
ton Post. lie arrived the day lieforc
the wedding, and he left nt the snmt
time the bridal pair did, although he
was driven to a different railway sta
tion, As he passed through the sta
tion, carrying his traveling bag, he
was creating a sensation, but was to.
tally at a loss to account for it. In the
car he found that he was still the ob
ject of amused attention. The portet
positively snickered as he passed hit
scat, and finally juat as the trnin drew
out he enme up and assisted the church
man to remove his overcoat.
"What is the matter with you, my
roan?" asked the bishop. The porter'i
snicker broadened into a laugh.
"Ain't you done let' the lady, sahV
he chuckled.
"Uh?" exclaimed the bishop in sur
prise. Then his eye fell on the side
ot his traveling bag, which the porter
hud just turned round, There, glued
to it, was a wide strip of white satin
ribbon, on which was painted in large
"Married this morning."
The facetiously minded best man had
mistaken the bishop's traveling bag for
that ot the bridegroom, and a chuckling
black porter worked late into the night
removing thut ribbon.
