OLD CHRIST CHURCH.
Venerable Edifice Dating; Back to
Early Colonial Days.
Xext to Independence Hall the j
most interesting Historical uuiiumg
Philadelphia is Christ Church on Sec
ond street, above Market. Both
sacred and national associations clus
ter around this stately edifice, where
lie the remains of John Penn, Rich
ard Peters, Robert Asheton and many
others, great men in their day, whose
tombstones have been worn smooth
by the feet of those who followed
tliem and in their turn have passed
away. The coach of "Washington,
drawn by four dashing bays, used to
draw up in front of this church on
Sunday, and its stately owner to walk
with dignified and reverent manner
up the center aisle to the seat as
signed for his use by the vestry. Ben
jamin Franklin worshipped here,and
for years was a member of the vestry.
Robert Morris, the eminent financier
of the Revolutionary period, was also
a regular attendant. The first peal
of the old "Liberty Bell," which an
nounced the birtli of a nation, was
joined by the sweet chimes of the
bells in Christ Church tower.
The venerable building is a fine
and well-preserved specimen of the
style of church architecture which
appeared in London after the great
fire, and is built of brick which were
brought from the mother country.
The original building, erected in 1G95,
only twelve years after the founding
of the city by Penn and during the
reign of William III., was constructed
partly of wood and partly of brick.
Queen Anne presented the church
with a communion service appro
priatcly inscribed, which is still pre
served. The church was enlarged in
1711 and Governor Sir William Keith,
becoming one of the vestrymen, built
a permanent Governor's pew in the
church. The corner-stone of the pres
ent building was laid with imposing
ceremonies in 1727 by the Governor
of the Province, the Mayor and Re
corder of the city and the rector of
WIIUI1E WHITFIELD PKEACIIED.
The pulpit of this church was occu
pied by the celebrated Whitfield, dur
ing his visit to this country, the rec
tor not being able to refuse the
people who were so anxious to hear
him. The chime of eight bells was
brought from London in 1734. They
were placed in the tower by Nicholas
Nicholson, who cast them and ac
companied them to this country, lie
refused any compensation for his
trouble on account of the attachment
he felt for the work of his hands, sim
ply asking that the bells should be
muflled when he died. This request
was religiously observed. The bells
also rang out cheerful peals whenever
the good ship Myrtella, which
brought them from England, entered
this port. Governor DeLancy, of New
York, and Shirley, of Massachusetts,
returning from th'e first Congress of
Colonial Governors, at Alexandria,
in 1755, were greeted with a merry
peal of welcome from the bells. With
in these hallowed walls assembled
the first convention of clergymen
held in the Colonies, on the 11th of
May, 17G0. The Continental Congress
appointed July 20, 1775, as a day of
humiliation, fasting and prayer and
attended Christ Church in a body.
The spirit of liberty which found
expression in the Declaration of Inde
pendence was followed the same day
by a decision of the staid vestrymen
of the old. church, who requested the
rector to omit from the Litany the
petition for the health and safety of
the King ef Great Britain. Congress
attended in a body the funeral of
William Henry Drayton, Chief Jus
tice of South Carolina in 177G and
afterward a delegate to Congress,
who was buried from the church,with
imposing ceremonies, in 1779. The
history of the church is identified
with the first organization and estab
lishment of the Episcopal Church in
the United States, for here in 1784
was held the first convention of the
Diocese of Pennsj'lvania and those
following for thirty years. During
the period from 1790 to 1796, when
the seat of government was located
in Philadelphia, General Washington
and his family occupied pews 54 and
56 and the seat specially used by the
President was placed in Indepen
dence Hall when the church was re
novated in 1836.
THE INTERIOR MODERNIZED.
This renovation consisted in modern
izing the interior of the church pave
ment and covering with a floor the
brick and the tombstones in the aisles,
wliich were much worn. Funeral sol
emnities were celebrated in honor of
William Henry Harrison April 20,
1841. An immense civic and military
procession formed in front of Indepen
dence Hall and moved through the
principal streets to Christ Church,
where an eloquent discourse was
preached by the Right Rev. Bishop
Onderdonk." The work of restoring
this old church as nearly as possible
to its original condition was begun in
1882. Money was subscribed liberally
by leading "citizens, who rejoiced to
see this old landmark revived. The
result was the resurrection of old
slabs, whose inscriptions were pro
nounced illegible in 1836. The orig
inal pavement was almost wholly re
covered, and, when wanting, tiling
in harmony was laid. The original
doorways were opened and the old
staples found and replaced. To-day
the pulpit stands where it did prior
to 1769, with the old furniture re
stored wherever it was possible to do
so. From the founding of this church
in 1695 to the present day, a period
of 190 years, it has been under the
charge of only eleven clercymen, bo
ginning with Thomas Clayton and
ending with the Rev. Edward A.
Foggo, D. D., the present rector.

The Coffee Tree.
Now that beautiful leaved plants
are so justly popular and insiich con
stant request for drawing-room deco
ration, it is surprising that the coiice
tree of commerce (Coffea Arabira is
not made use of. We see it now and
then in nurserymen's greenhouses,
but seldom anywhere else, and yet
there are few evergreen shrubs more
ornamental, and very few that are
better adapted Jfor the adornment of
the sitting-room. An average tem
perature of 70 le. in summer and (",0
deir. in winter will be found quite
sufficient, anil, if the plant is put in
a warm corner of the room over Ihe
kitchen fire on fruMy nights, no harm
will come to it.
The best soil for planting is a mix
ture of peat and loam. The drainage
must be thorough, the supply of
water abundant, and the roots must
have plenty of room. The coffee tree
in a young state is well worth grow
ing fbr its bright green glossy leaves,
fragrant jessamine-like white blos
soms, and berries changing from
green to red. It is said that Megal
ledin, a learned Mufti of Aden, be
came acquainted with it during one
of his African journeys. He took
back some berries with him to Yemen
and recommended the beveraire to
his friends as an excellent method of
keeping awake at prayers. Its use
gradually spread to the Nile. Syria,
Asia Minor and Turkey. Coffee was
first sold in Constantinople in 1654.
It was introduced into Europe by
the Dutch in 1610, but did not reach
this country till lt40. Arab coffee is
chiefly grown in Yemen, where it was
first planted in the neighborhood of
Aden and Mocha. The plantations
are usually made halt way up the
hills. The Denies are not gathered,
but cloths are spread under the trees
for the fruit to fall upon when ripe.
The coffee is mostly consumed in the
country, the home demand being o
great. There i not much exported,
and that not the best. A good deal
of what goes in the trade by the 11.11110
of Mocha coffee comes from Brazil and
the West Indies.
How Much Lumber Huo o Got.
The stock of pine vet standing in.
Michigan can produce 40,000,00i,000
feet of lumber, if cut for that pur
pose. In eight years, therefore, at
the late average production of the
stale, the pine will have been used
up. Hut such predictions have been
made for years past. In 1S67, the
standing pine of .Michigan was esti
mated to lie 32,416,000,000 feet and it
was predicted that it would be all
cone in seventeen years. But since
then the Saginaw vallev alone has
produced' about 12,000,0"00,000 feet,
and will continue to cut in the neigh
borhood of 1,000,000,000 feet a year
for Hi" eight or ten years to come.
As pine grows scarcer, it will make
more lumber than when it was plenty.
But in predicting the end of pine
lumbering, a person must take into
account the timber which is yet
standing in Wisconsin, Minnesota,
Canada and the South. And it will
be many years before it even grows
scarce, when we estimate the whole.
Yet an end must come to the forests
that the white race found in this
country. Doubtless pine forests of
the second growth will be raised for
future use, but the present magnifi
cent forests will disappear. It has
'een estimated that the demand for
nnber in this country from 1SS0 to
.8!0 would require 210,000,000,000
feet, and one can readily see that at
that. rate the stock must soon be
gone. There is only about 55,000
000.000 feet of pine "in Canada, and
that would go but a short way in sav
ing the forests of the United States.
That Dirty Dandruff.
Dandruff is dirty and disagreeable
in every way. It soils the clothing
continually, and is accompanied by a
hardly less annoying sensation of
itching. The scalp is diseased. There
is nothing in the world so thoroughly
adapted to this trouble as Parker s
Hair Balsam. It cleanses and heals
the scalp, stops the falling hair and
restores its originnl softness, gloss
and color. Is not oily, highly perfumed,-

In Russia, where in the middle
classes the seclusion 61 women was
even a few years ago nearly as great as
in a harem, the advocate of women's
rights would to-day find little to de
mand for any class of females above
the level of the peasantry. The mou
jik still administers corporal chastise
ment to his wife as he would to his
child, and his right to do so, though
denied by the written law, is tacitly
acknowledged in practice. The girf,
however, is nearly as independent as
her male relations. Like her brother,
and from similar causes, she, too.
often becomes disgusted with her
home, and determined to seek what
she imagines to be the delights of the
independent life led by the numerous
female students who "follow various
university courses, and particularly
that of medicine. Sometimes, when
her parents refuse her permission to
leave home, she simply runs away,
and having no passport her position
becomes illegal, and she naturally
finds her companions among those
who, like herself, have cot into some
trouble with the authorities.
In some cases enthusiasts like Sol
ovieff, who fired at the late czar in
April, 1S79, marry girls with whom
the have scarcely any acquaintance,
and for whom they have no feelimis
of affection, merely to free them from
the obligation of obtaining a passport
from their parents and their consent
to leave home. The young husband
and wife proceed together to the uni
versity town, and there, having nn
particular taste for each other's so-
ciety, tney ouen separate immediate-1
ly, and even where they would de-
sire to maintain their mutual connec-
tion, the pressure of poverty and the
uimcuuies ot tneir position frequent
ly oblige them to part company.
