this story illustrative of the fine hu-nor

The archbishop had rebuked a priest

"I would not give this hat for 20 new
ones." said the priest. "It belonced to
my father, who fell in the rising of '43.

A CHURCH NOVEITT
Illustrated songs in churches are a nov-
altv. and if thev become popular they will
undermine one of the strongest features ini
the vaudeville houses.
This specialty was sprung on the con
gregation of the Tayloi -Street M. E.
church last night by Rev. F. Burgette
Short, D. D. Needless to state, the min
ister made an instantaneous hit with his
audience, which applauded him in a way
which entitled him to an encore, an honoi
of which he did not avail himself.
Dr. Short save an illustrated lecture on
the Tissot paintings, and during the course
of the evening he suddenly astonished his
congregation by breaking into song. "The
Holy City was his selection, and he ren
dered it in a manner which would ause
most illustrated balladists to turn green
from professional envy.
This lecture will be repeated in two
weeks for the benefit of those who couid
not get into the church last night. Next
Sunday Dr. Short will g ve an illustrated
sermon on Sheldon's "In His Steps."
