In a recent sermon he i sorted roundly his belief in hell as a literal place of where the wicked undergo physical anc mental anguish of the extremist kind.

The following aphoristical ex- tracts from the writings of the original and inimitable Dean are but specimens of the richness of the gems that may be gathered in that Golconda of lite rary We have just enough religon to make us not enough to make us love one another. How is it possible to expect tha mankind will take when they will not so much as take war Appollo was held the god o physic and sender of diseases Both were originally the same and still continue. When a true genius appears in the world you may know him by this that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. Complaint is the largest tribute Heaven and the sinceres part of our devotion. The scheme of supplying our wants by lopping off our de is like cutting off our feel when we want shoes.

They mourned his death and when bis name waa mentioned it was re- ferring to the memory of the desd. In 1864 the family removed to this where all but one son now resides. In tbe meantime our hero was not bat was delving away for the shining ore. In an un- fortunate hour tbe mine in which tic was caved in upca and only by a terrible efforts be was rescued alive. He recovered from tbe effect of the fearful ac- but in a wounded and mangled after suffering the amputation of one of his arms sustained other permanent in- juries. As may be fifteen years of exposure and adventure made a great difference In the ap- pearance of him who had left his father's roof a fresh and joyous boy. Last summer Charles determined to revisit his family. He came to on inquiring found his brothers. He told them who he but they conld recall nothing about him that was natural.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
