This story is told of a prominent
preacher : On a hot Kabbuth as he was
preaching he took from his p(x;ket what
he thought was his handkerchief, shook
it out and wipl his face, intently talk
ing all the time. To his surnriHe a broad
smile was on every face in his audience,
when he discovered that what he had
put in his pocket for a handkerchief
that morning was a pair of his little
child's drawers, the legs of which were
quite visiblo as be wiped tho perspira
tion from his face. Homiletic Review.
