A party of gentlemen wen dlaeasslng tbe recent expression of opinion of Lord Tennyson, who, in a letter of condolence ou the occasion of the death of a common friend, said: 'I cannot bat look upon our friead's death aa a bappy one. Bat oar liturgy enjoin, ns to pny to he delivered from sud-1 death. For my part, it is tha one that I abould pny for. Among those present waa tbe Rev. T. DeWltt Talmage, of Brooklyn, and he was asked for hla opinion 00 tha subject The great pulpit orator seemed buried in thought for a moment, and then began: 'In my opinion men abould leave the question as to how death should eome to them to the master of life and death. He ie tba best jadge, as he Is the supreme dictator in tbose matters, It la a common thing to hear men say thst they wish for a sudden and nnexpested death. It la a common thing for men and women to dnad last thsy should before death suffer protracted pain, or extended illness, or poverty when ill. AH these are natural feeling*. It is also common, I find, for auKaersons to wish that they may not be jgejMmet by death in tbe pnblio eerv-iojwrla^irlvste. They will mast aiokneu or privation with patisnos, if they but know that they will be apprised when tbe cud is to come. I can undarstand that Ihen an reasons for thia. Many men, knowing that they most die, wish to die with their loved ones about them, with the knowledge thst their earthly again are In order, and that they an folly prepared to meet their Divine Master. Then is besnty in tie Christian death wherever it is.met. It may be in a mansion or In a ''ovel. It msy be In the battlefield or in the recesses of a mine, ia the pobllo street or any other slnnmstsnoe. It la all the same. "For myself," continued Dr. Talmage, �I can only say I bar* no desln to diotate the time or manner of my death. It is for tbe Master to oall and for ma to answer when tbe call la made. It is not my place to question. I am satisfied to lesve life and death to tha higher power that oon. trola them. Of course in this I speak for myself. That men do wish thst whsn death shall come It shall come suddenly I know, and that other men havo altogether different ideas I slao know. Death is mnoh and variously discussed. Meet It when and whaie and how the Master or dsn we mast. Meet It s* Christians ean we ahoald. And then we need not fesr. Boston.

Tbe Dally Vtmoerai of Thursday apaaha dlsoouraglngly of the proposition to build a silk mill in Look Haven, and intimates that the money required coold not be rail ed. Aa the mosey la!not ooatributsd aa a gift but loaned on gaud eeenrlty, then hi not likely to be eny dlOaulty la obtaining all that Is required when tbe proper time arrives. Only a abort time slnea tbe County Commissioner* desired a loan of 120,000 and the bonds .for that amoant taken quickly at 4 par cent Interest. It hss been intimated teat there are mooted men ready to invest largely in thie new enterprise, and a mqvevent Is to be made Board of Trade and prominent business men hi that Look Haven ought this gear to seenre at (net one large industry and a silk mill would be a seta and profitable Investment. The Allentown Critic of the 9tb commenting on tbe Exv-bbw' article eaya: "The Look Heven Zxraxai quotes, from the columns of tha Orilte, the story of AI-lentown'a enterprise in the matter of tba new ailk mill to be bailt on North 19th street shortly, and then argea the capital-lata and basin*** men of that thriving little oity to emulate our example by Investing some of their money ia Ilk* Improvement*, to the end that labor msy be furnished to the workers, population drawn to the town, and business biaaefitted by both results. Tbe Xxnraws m giving Its reader* good advloe Id this matter, and they will do well to heed it. It Is Jut aa true of whole communities as of ladividoale, that "tba Lord helps thoaa that help themselves," and those that set upon tha maxim will speedily realise the implied resnlta. By the way, there js one inaoonney In the Exnnn'sUtemest Messrs. Beaton ds Pedley an aot now tunning two of the three mille hen. They have but one, In a rented building much too (mail, and It la on account of thie limited span and tbe dsslro to extend the plant so many more baede can be put to work, that tha new mill will be oonatrusted." .

Tbla morning aboat two o'clock a man effected *b entrance to tbe itore of James Bibb, corner of Mela and Henderson atresia by bnakiag one of the large penes of glass at tbe elde of the front aetnaon. Mr. Qibb le night baggage muter at tha P. dt E. paasengsr depot, and tha noise of the breaking glass awoke Mn. Oihb, who heard tba man walk away after he had broken the window. A short time afterwards he ntnaed and entered the store through tbe window. Mr. Glbb sailed for assistance and Mr. C. F. Mann, who lives just opposite, raised the window of hie bed room, and eommenoed firing abots from hla nrolvar at tha honea-breaker. The fellow left, at ones, walking leisurely away, without taking anything witb him, aad apparently unhurt by the bullet* from Mr. Mann'a revolver. Yesterday afternoon a woodsman waa roughly handled by trsmpe in the lower yard of the P.   from Ooiientor Ooaser'a Media American.
