Coiniti"- down on the car the ether
morning they got to talking about
tlicir coal-stoves, and one man said:
: J' Well, I don't want to brag, but I
think I've got tho boss stove. So
lar, this Winter, I have not burned
but three tons of coal, and the stove
has kept three rooms warm "
"You must linve a poor store," re
marked the second. ' I haven't burn
ed hut-two tons of coal yet, and my
itovTneals parlor, dining-room, two
bed rooms and a hall."
'Well, when yon eomo to stoves"
quietly remarked the third, ''I claim
to have the best coal stove in De
troit. I have burned but a ton and a
half, so far, and we have to keep all
the dampers shut and a back door
o en an tliu time.
Some men looked out ot the win

and no one seemed to doubt anv ol

sili was heard from the rear end of
the car, and a clerical-looking man
arose and said:

There is a lady livinji iu Detroit
who has eaten a pound ot candy daily
lor weeks past. About a year ago,
alter recovering from a severe attack
of typhoid fever, she developed a sud
den fondness for raisins. Siie bought
llieiii by the pound and the box, and
she has been known to devour two
pounds ot raisins in a day. After a
time her taste changed l confections,
aud now she eats them day and night,
on iLe car, at the opera, and even in
church. She buys only the finest and
most exj ensive and never less than a
pound per day. There is a man 53
years old who has resided in Detroit
ever since thn first horse car was
started, and yet he has never entered
a car. In rain and snow and heat he
jogs along, meeting and beiug passed
by cars, but nothing can drive him
into becoming a passenger. When
the present post office buildiag was

he has never yut entered the building.
In L'oiii'' up aud down Michigan

Hide. There is a man iiviii'mii tnie
city who has tor years kept two men
and two women sei rants, and he has
alwavs iusisted that tho man should
be black haired and the women red
haired. It is said thut years ago he
passed a black haired man and a red
haired girl walking arm in arm, and
dm iug the next ten steps he picked up
a wallet with a large sum 05 money
in it which was never elaimed. His
good luck brought with it the whim
that ho now indulges. On Sixth
street lives a middle aged man who
will not speak to a man wearing a
stove pipe hat. Once, alter sending
for a doctor lor his wife, he refused
to let the physician enter because he
had a silk hat on.
Rev. Mr. PnTia,sayg tho Reno

arrival social was given at the
church, for the purpose of giving the
members an opportunity of becoming
acquainted with the new pastor. Two
ot the oldest and most respectable
pillars of the sanctuary entered the
pastor's study a ce.y little room,
where a fire waa brightly burning
and found a dozen gentlemen louug

Western man and liberal, the cigars
didn't shock the hrctherii much.
They were introduced, and rather

"Well," responded tho clergyman,
with chworl'ul confidence, ''I'll fcive
the boys a rattle, aud what I csu to
drive in a few gospel stakes. Is it a
pretty good crowd for business ?"
Both the horrified hi et hern started
speechlessly at the pastor. Seeing
that they failed to comprehend, the
rwyereud geniltinan kindly explain
''Oh, you don't tumble to tho rack
et I what I mean is, will you church
fellows stand in when I piel and go
for tho sinucrs?"
Finally, murmuring something
about being always willing to assist
in the Lord's work, the brethren
were staggering out when their new
pastor stopped them with:
"Isn't this rather a dusty style o
treating a fellow v Can't you trot out
sulhiu to wet onu's whistle?
They tied alter one scared look at
one another, and were rushing lroni
the church, when another brother
hailed them and he said he wailed to
introduce them to thu new paster,
"We've seen him," groaned out,

Miss Edith Potter, tnly daughter
of Thomas Bazley Potter, M. P. for
Uochdale, and tho fid us achates of
John Bright, was recently admitted
into the Catholic church by Cardinal
Manning himself. She soon substi
tuted lor her ordinary domestic
duties a series ot nscelio penances,
and abandoned hei social circle,
wherein shn had previously shoue
and to which she was deeply eudear
ed. Some mouths ago she left Eng
land with her parents. She hardly
ever exchanged so much aa a sylla
ble with either, but was absorbed in
contemplaliou, and chastened herself
with lasting pcrtmacieiuly. At
I'lorauce her health fairly broke
down, and she was immediately
moved te home 111 tho vain hope that
the change ot air and scene might
bring her round. Here, however,
her condition became ciilieal, aud
when she lay hovering between lite

most providentially Dr. Erhardt was
called in. This able physician at
once took fan accmatu diagnosis of
the case, aud stated uneqivocally
that the symptoms wero attributable
wholly aud solely to morbid excite

tricks with bur constitution, adding
that it was but one et a class of casts
which tco frequently came under his
aolice and which resulted from an

Stenor, so it is said, addrossed him

followed had been the outcome ot
selfwill and was unjustifiable. As I -write,

Henry Ward Btecher lias made
$2,000,000, iu tho twenty years of hia
pnsloral life. Of this large sum $350
ODD was recei'.ed as slated salary.
The rest of the money was got by
lecturing, writing for uewspapeis,
making books, an I other moans. It
is au immense return for even a popu
lar and remarkably gifted preacher
lo make iu his profession and adja
cent fields of activity. When it is re-
membersd that thousands of educat
ed, conscientious, devoted ministers
give their lives to their people in the
sacred calling for salaries ranging
from $.)00 to $1000 per year, without
gelling a dollar for literary or plat
form work, visiling the poor and
overseeing the school, and working
with tireless zeal for temperance
aud other worthy causes, the amount
received by the Brooklyn preacher
seems almost fabulous. But Mr.
Beecher has made a great do: 1 he
aides the two million dollars. He
has made a world wide re; utalioa as
a popular preacher and lecturer. He
has made himself famous as the expo
tent ol a modified, a mitigated ortho
doxy a sort ot fast ami loose theolo
gy Christianity with all the modern
improvements. He has made one
beautiful home a ruin, and the cleri
cal character a subject of reproach
aud ridicule. He has maJj gcod
men bow their heads wiih tliamn at
the scandal he has brought en relig
ion and the church. He has made a
great and honored name a synonym
for what brings a bl ish to the cheeks
of women and honorable men tor
bear to mention. And there are n
good many ministers, to their honor
be it said, who, though starring on
8000 a year, would not take Brceher'e
2,000,000 on condition et being ob
liged to take the other things Betthsr
has made with money.
