One of the most \foul\ games of ball ever played in this village was witnessed last Sat- urday between the Stars of this place and Delmar nine. The first two innings were blinds for^ihe visitors while the Stars secur- ed six runs. This seemed to enrage the 200 pound pitcher (whom some of the small boys called Jumbo) who hoisted his foot higher and pitched more'carelessly than ever, and by taking good aim managed to hit and cripple Ostrander, so that he was unable to do his usual good work behind the bat. However he displayed good grit until another Delmar man, thinking perhaps to cripple our catcher and thereby win the game, struck at a ball and swinging himself around holding the club in his hands until it had hit Lew, striking \hi™ on the arm. These acts but encouraged our boys, who \did them up\ to the tune of 18 to 15 with James Keenholts behind the bat, two of our best players away from home, and Lew dis- abled. The game was made up of numer^ ous fouls and errors in the field. The um- pire brought by the. visitors gave general satisfaction.

' 'Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, -while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, whenthoushaltsfiy I have no pleasure in them,\—Ed 12, 1, were the words of the text selected by Edwin Jacobson for his funeral sermon, which was delivered by his pastor, Rev. 3. S. Harkey, to hundreds of people assembled in the Re formed church of Helderberg, Sunday, Julj 8th at 11 a. m. These words were not onlyappropriate be- cause of the peaceful condition in which h< died, but were also his words of advice tc his associates and many friends. As I listen- ed to the remarks and pleadings of his pns- tor to tae young, I could but thank God that the departed had listened to this sara text some three years ago, and that it was \seed sown on good ground.\ And why should we not listen to his pleading voice, uttering these words of advice, as a disciple of Christ, who himself relied on His promise es and who has gone to receive his reward Mr. Jacobson was a favorite among bis as sociates, and was highly respected by all wh< knew him for his temperate habits and Christian integrity. His services were fully appreciated by his employer J. F. Maehesney, who is associated in business with Leonard & Youngman, of Albany. He was conscious to the end and called to his bedside his people and friends, all of whom he requested to meet him in Heaven, He selected hii own bearers and gave directions as to who should preach his funeral sermon and where he desired to have his funeral held, and left good-byes to all his acquaintances, with the request that they all meet him beyond \Th< Biver.'' Those of us who were his associates can truly say, — In him a loss, we do sustain, In Heaven we hope, to meet again. Heartfelt sympathy is extended to the be reaved parents and brothers of the deceosed in the loss of one of the most promising young men of this community, of whom it may be said:-^ Soon has passed his earthly mission, Soon has passed his pilgriin days; Hope has changed to glad fruition, Faith to sight and prayer to praise. Respectfully, O. J, HOGAN. ABEL STEINEEEG. Suddenly at Knox, N. Y., on Friday, June 29th 1888, Abel Steinberg. The deceased had been identified with the interests of the town during his entire life- time, and was well and widely known through- out the community. He was a man that was greatly respected because of his sterling in- tegrity and the noble qualities of his mind and heart. His home life was exceptionally happy and many a happy birthday or Wedding anniversary was celebrated, when friends and neighbors gathered together to make the occasion a memorable one. though never having made a public prof es* sion of his faith in Christ, he was nevertheless thoughtful and attentive, a reader of tlie Scriptures and a constant attendant, upon theseivicesof the Reformed church of West Berne. For years he had held an official position in the Sunday school of this church, and was soliciting subscriptions for a new It brary just previous to his death. On the day of his funeral, July 2nd the church was crowded to the doors, thuB showing that he was both well known and highly esteemed. Cut down in the very prune of life, his death was a shock, not only to the widow, but to tha whole community. Keen and bitter was the sorrow because of the sense of loss and separation at his departure. The weekly meeting of the W. C. T. tJ. will be held on Wednesday next, -July 18th at 3 p. m., at the house of Myndert La- Grange, Guilderland Centre. All are wel- come. By Older of the Union. L. H, \7. sec Mr. Editor,— At the meeting of the Gnilderland Sabbath School association, at the Reformed church on the\ evening of the 8th ult., the subject, \how best to teach children total abstinence,\ was opened, by Rev. G. Warrack, who spoke in an able, and very earnest manner. He believed in the father teaching hs boy by precept and ex- ample to abstain entirely from all intoxi- cants. If the father puts cider in his cellar, and drinks it when he pleases, drinks ale, and stronger beverages, when he pleases, it will avail him nothing to teach the boy by word to let it alone. The same with the pastor, superintendent and teacher in the Sabbath school. The boys will be more likely to believe what they practice than what they preaoh. He spoke of the good results which will grow from teaching in the schools the nature and effect of alcohol oh he human system. Temperance, said he, is too mUd a word to Use, and is hurtful as ap- ilied to the use of intoxicants. Every drunk- ard began by drinking temperately, moder- ately. No one who uses it temperately, can ie assured that they will not go to a drunk- ard's grave and a doom which God himself has pronounced. Mr. Hendrick, Mr. Lan- iing and other speakers followed hi the same' vein, after which Rev. Harltey followed by aying that he differed with those who had spoken. They had not touched the key- note. Said he, put the love of God in their hearts, that is all that is needed. If that be so how is it that so many of our professors, and even deacons and elders in the church go to the bar of the rum shop's and drhi<£ hat which intoxicates. Have not they the ove of God hi their heart? I believe, that- if enough of the love of God could be put in. their hearts to keep out the evil desires, no ther teaching would bo necessary. But since the first man Was created in tKe image and likeness of God, pure, and holy, but one man has lived with sufficient of tha love of God in ids heart to resist all the tempta- tions of the world, and thai was the man Jesus, our Lord and Savior. So let us, parents, and teachers, teach the children that God has placed- under our care to shun the intoxicating cup, as through its influence the greater proportion of crimes come and their only safety is in total absti- nence.
