Look tor Ix.The old church book of
Union (Luth.) Church, anciently known as
"Pine Meeting House," five? miles east of
Salisbury, has been lost or mUlaid. It is
a valuable book ' as containing the early
records of the church. It is believed that
this old book is yet in distance. It may
be among the old cast-away papers and
liooks of some member of the congrega-
tieu laid np on some shelf in a garret,
or dropt in' a box; or barrel aud pushed
away in a corner: among worthless tilings,
forgotten or unknown by flibse who have
it. Members of the congregation might
render the church a valuable service by
making a dilligent search for the old book,
which of course is of no value except to
the church. r '
A Sad Accident. Adolpltus Johnson,
a white boy of 10 or 12 years, met with
a painful accident last Friday night,
which if it prove jiot fatal, is likely to dis
figure him for life. He was on the
streets playing with a fire ball in com
pany with several other boys.' They
were kicking and throwing it; in thensual
recjHess manner. Tho ball j was made of
an old pair of pantaloons, sat united with
kerosene. The rongh usage and the fife
had brokeu the bands which bound it iu
ball-shape when lone of the boys gave the
flaiuiug rag a toss with a J stick, audit
struck young Johuson and wrapped
around his neck so tightly, that he eould
not disengage it, iior was he relieved un
til after the fire was smothered out. He
was dreadfully burned about the neck
and face. Dr Trautham was called to
his assistance immediately and did for
him all that could be done. His coudi
tiou is bad, but hopes of his recovery are

Talbot's Patent Spark Arrester,
The Invention of the Age.
Talbot's new patent Spark-Arrester is really the on
ly perfect and reliable one. and Is sunersedlnc al
others in use. The great efficiency of this Arreste
is attracting universal attention, and lsbefni? en
dorsed by the best mechanical engineers and Insu
ranee companies, its prominent features are :
Itdoes not destroy the draft.
It does not Interfere with cleaning the tubes.
It will nqt choke up, and requires no cleaning.
It requires no direct dampers to be opened when
raising steam (dampers belnr objectionable, as they
may be left open and allow sparks to escape.)
Il requires no water to extinguish sparks, which,
by condensation, destroys the draft. Bestdea, when
water la used, if neglected, the efficiency is destroy
ed by evaporation of the water, and the boiler Is kept
In a filthy condition.
It is simple and durable and can be relied upon.
It can be attached to any boiler.
No planter should be without one of them. Insu
rance companies will insure gins and burn where the
Talbot Engines and Spark-Arrest era are used at tbe
same rates as charged for water or horse-power.
