Close Shave. On Wednesday,
W. V. Smith wiiile engaged in sewing
sacks at Messrs. Comstoek & Co.'s,
met with a 'piiinfid accident. As lie
was drawing ' the thread or twine
through the sack, the thread broke
wlien part way through, and the force
osetl in palling the thread through
carried the hand holding the needle to
the face of Smith the needle entering
the face under the right eye. It is
t hought the sight will not be impaired.
A shade higher up and the eye would
have been closed forever.

Thanksgiving Evening. Tlie
Apron Festival given by the ladies
of the Congregational Church, at
Parrish Hall, on Thursday evening,
was the most successful success of the
season. There was a jam of people in
attendance, who displayed their liler
alitj' by purchasing all the aprons, ice
cream and other refreshment offered
for sale, thus putting money in the
Church purse. It was a gay anil
festive occasion enjoyed by all, with
tlie exception, probably, of the ladies
who had the management of the Fair.
As many of them had been 0:1 their
feet from early morn until far into the
night, they were doubtless glad when
the crowd, satiated with the good
things of which they had partaken,
and with swapping civilites with
friends and acquaintances, commenced
to hiac clatawa eopa stickhou.se. Tlie
ice cream was splendid, the aprons
well made and cheap, everybody was
well dressed, well behaved, handsome
and polite, and soforth.
Thanksgiving Skumox. The
Thanksgiving services which were con
ducted in the Methodist church last
Thursday, were attended by a . fair
audience for such occasions, the ladies
being considerably hi ,the majority.
Fair we say, for such occasions the
great mass of observers seem to give
an undue preference to that feature of
the custom, which replenishes the in
ternal physical man. .The Rev. Mr.
Shaw, of the Methodist church, con
ducted the preliminary exercises, after
which the Rev. Mr. Butcher, of the
Congregational church, delivered an
impressive discourse from James,
Chapter 1, Verse 17: " Every good
gift is from above, and conieth down
from the Father of lights, with whom i
no variableness, neither shadow of turn
ing." Among the home truths elucidat
ed in the discourse,apt and appropriate,
there was one which we thought
would be well tor every individual to
scrutinize unusually close, to see
whether or no it does not apply to
him. Tlie truth to which we refer, is
the disposition among men to attrib
ute their successes and achievments in
lite to their own innate skill and
.shrewdness, while their misfortunes
are proverbially charged to God.

What Good Roads Do. An ex
change truly says : "Good road bene
fit every, one residing along their
course. Good roads save Iiorsefiesh ;
they facilitate the transportation of
produce to market ; save J'otir temper;
they increase the value of your lands
they lend attractiveness to tlie eye pt
a stranger; they increase the traffic
and business of a town by its "vitality
in all the various brandies of trade;
Show us a town which receives a large
country trade by means-1 of the fine
roads leading to it, and we 1 will show
you a place that is lively, progressive
and . thrifty, with money circulating,
plenty, and men in all branches of in
dustry busy as beavers.
How to keep People Quiet,
Tlie discontented people of the Per
sian Capital were appeased by Me
Shah in a time Oriental style. Tlie
people were clamoring for bread, and
there was none to give them. S the
Vizier of tlie town wsis put in irons,
tied to a donkey's tail and dragged
bareheaded and barefooted through
the bazaar at midday. After this sen
tence had been executed, the head
baker and several ' of his- subordinates
were baked alive in their own ovens.
This appeased the people for a time,
but as they remain without food further
rioting is expected. - - ;
Mr. Spurgeon lia3 now, it is said,
printed 1,600 of his sermons, of which
20,000,000 copies have been distributed,
in the English, language alone..
