liev. Htaub preached his farewell sermon
in the Congregational church here today.
Asa .farewell, it certainly Is without a
parallel. Not because it was more brilliam
than other like deliveries, not because of the
eloquence displayed; not because of the
metaphors snd hyperliules that usuall)
adorn like deliveries. But because it came
from the innermost depths of a soul whose
only purpose in life is to uplift fallen
humanity. That kind yet earnest look,
that sincere expression of countenance,
those ringing tones, yet tinged with sadness
itave evidence of a sincerity that languag
fails to portray. And when the hour of
parting came, when the beloved pastor and
bis noble wife bid farewell to all present, '
many an eye became dim with tears. Mr. i
Staub lias been pastor here for nearly ten '
years. During tins time he has led his con-I
grt-gation out of a bondage not excelled bv
ancient Romanism to the li'ht of Intel
lectual freedom and true Christianity, Ho
has purchased s home in Sunnyside, near
Portland where he intends to spend the re
mainder of his years in peace.

In the number of The Tatler for Oct
