In a difference of opinion upon doctrinal points. Dr. Jackson la pns'or of the Fountain Street Haptlst church ami has boon for tlio last four yearn. Ho came from tlio vnti, Is polished, eloquent and popular, and In his views takes advanced ground, holding that man cannot ho saved by faith alone, but that fnlth Hhall bo backed and nub.slantlatod by works. Ills church Is thn largest In tho city, one of the moat fashlonabk', and tho wealthiest, ami the litigation, while It has naught of tho scandalous In Its make-up, will not lack In Interest, and will not fall to draw a crowd If It Khali ever como to trial. It Is generally believed that the plaintiff has a few cards tip her alcove which she will play at the trial. Allss Mnlhcrn, the complainant In tho case, la a daughter of Huv. Dr. Dennis KKV. J. L. JACKSON. Mulhern, ono of tho oldest clergymen of tho Haptlst faith In tho state a gonial, gentle, kindly old man, on tho Hupornnuntcd list, somewhat reduced In finances, but rich In the esteem and friendship of a wide Haptlst circle. Miss Mulhern Is nbout !50 years old, probably on tho shady side of tho half century mark. Her temper Is not tho sweetest, from all accounts, and It la Bald nho Is Homewhat "sot," In her waya nnd dogmatic In her opinions. Slio cannot bo accused of having an un due allowance of personal charms and It cannot be said sho is popular, but tho kindly Interest felt for her good father found employment for her to do tho local missionary work for tho Foun tain Street church. Sho was tlrat paid by subscription, prominent members of the church chipping In to make up tho necessary amount, and while her work was missionary in Its nature her posi tion, some say self-named, was th.it of "assistant pastor." Sho was em ployed originally under Hev. Dr. Kerr 1. Tapper and ho bequeathed hor to Dr. Jackson. The method of support ing her by subscription continued until two years ngo and then the church trustees wero Induced to put her uumu In Jio budget and for a year her salary was paid by tho church. A year ago tho trustees decided that her services could bo dispensed with and sho was dropped, and not until after tho action had been taken did Dr. Jackson know of it. Tho relations between tho pastor and tils assistant hud not been harmonious from the beginning. Iiroitght up under her father's pulpit, a disciple or tho old school Haptlst, Miss .Mulhern was of tho hard-shell variety, while Dr. Jack son with his modern Ideas and liber ality, might bo described as a "noft Bhcll." Miss Mulhern did not ngreo ; & i wS ??-- . SEtSR MISS IIATTIK MDLHT5RN. with Dr. Jackson's views on doctrinal points, his liberality was not accord ing to hor way of thinking, his ad vanced position was contrary to tho traditions hIih had been brought up to consider. She remonstrated with him nnd argued nnd protested, thou, as tho story rocs, lost hor temper. She be gan "hackcapplng" tho pastor among tho people and endeavored to Injure him by Insinuation and Innuendo, When flho was dropped from tho pay roll sho blamod Dr. Jackson for It, nnd a few wcekB later, at a church meet ing, arose In hor seat nnd charged him with it, and thereby created 11 sousa Hon.

The committee called several tlm -s on Miss Mulhern. but each time Bh.' asked for a po.tpoae:ueut, and tho tirUt'-r draug'd along for several Wee3. ISocotnlns weary at tut of dancing attendance oa the accuser, the commit tee reported tho charge to be without foundation and recommended that Mlsu Mulhern b" dropped from the member ship roll of the church. The matter was submitted to the congregation at meeting called for the purpose and tho recommendation was adopted without a dissenting voice.

Schult., a farmer, and his wlfo, tenants on the laud belonging to St. Stephen's F.plscopal church, near Hal tlmoro, locked their three llttlo chil dren In their frame house the other day and went to work In the fields of a neighboring farm. Two babes, aged 3 and IS months respectively, wero left asleep In a crib. Tho oldesi child, II years of age. was toddling nbout tho 1 floor. The mother thoughtlessly left. matches on a chair beside her bed. Tin little one evidently got hold of them nnd set lire to tho bedding. Tho wlfo of It3v. William Muniford, rector of; tho church, saw the tlames nnd nant her servants to tho rescue. They burst In tho door of tho burning house. Tho crib was In Maine and tho two babes wero literally roasted alive. At tho risk of his own life a servant saved tho 3-years-old child, but It Is so badly burned that It cannot recover, having Inhaled tho tlames. Tho mother and father aro crazed over their terrlhlo loss, nnd It Is feared tho woman can not survive the shock. IIU Karn Split (Ipcn.

The express agent drew hisruvolvi r, prepared for anything, ami Inquired: "Whore are you?" "Let me out!" "Well, where aro you'.'" "Let mo out," was ul. the answer ho could get lu a tone like a voice from the tomb. The express ugent was not super stitious, lint he was, by this time, thoroughly alarmed. He unlocked tho reur door of thecal-mid summoned tho conductor, brukonion mid porters. It was his intent ion to open the caskets, If necessary, and comply with the re quest of the mysterious voice. Ono collln was placed at (iu end of the cur und the other collln at, the other end. Thou tho express agent inquired: Vho are you now?"

It Is to be inferred from tlio judge's statements that he would en force n gold clause. Ki'lKilrlin; WiihIioiiI ll.imuee. Fvunam, Neb.. April 'JT.
