"Good evenlnjr, sir," said the doctor,
bowing to the dog graciously. "Your
face Is full of Christian love, and you
make all thse Christians laugh with
Joy."
Then looking at the audience pleas
antly, the doctor said:
"Brothers and sisters, I asked a poor
Dutchman once what he would take
for his little dog.
'Oh, veil, parsons,' he. said, with
tears In his eyes, 'I couldn't sell dot
leetle dog: he loves me so. I know

"I am, sir," said the gray-haired min

"Why, of course I do!" said the doc
tor, smiling.
"And you find a good many things

"Oh, I do Just as I do when I am

When our little Ethel went to Bos
ton to visit her Aunt Belinda she be
came deeply interested In her aunt's
Sabbath school. When she returned
to New Tork, before taking off her hat,
she exclaimed enthusiastically:
Oh, mamma, you ought to go to
Aunt Belinda's Sunday school! It was
Just splendid! Last Sunday the lesson
was awful Interesting. It was all about
Moses and he was just the nicest
man! He loved all the litle children.
and one day he led all the little chil
dren of Israel out of the desert Into
the promised land only Moses himself,
he didn't get Into the promised land.
but he went up on top of a high moun
tain and Just looked over in, and then
he died and there don't anybody
know where Moses is burled or where
he went to but God and Aunt Belinda,
and she won't tell."
Dr. Kobeit Collyer, contemporary
with Chapin and Beecher, still delights
to tell this merry story in his ripe
old age:
One day," said the genial father of
preachers, "I sat in a seat on the
train down in Kentucky with a fam
ous Kentucky colored preacher whom
they all called Uncle Rufus. We were
talking about clergymen being called
to preach.
"'Uncle Rufus,' I said. 'I hear that
you don't believe much in the idea that
the Lord calls certain men to preach?"
"'Wall, sah,' said Uncle Rufus
thoughtfully, 'de Lawd mout call some
negroes ter preach; but it sorter 'pears
to me dat whar de Lawd calls one ole
man, laziness calls er dozen. Nine
negro preachers outer ten, Brother
Collyer, Is de laziest pussons in de
world, sah!'
" How do you know that. Uncle Ru
fus r
"'Beca'se I'se a preacher myse'f,
sah.
" 'I tell yer what, Brudder Collyer,' j
continued Uncle Rufus confidently, 'we
preachers must wuck wld energy if
we wuck er tall. Scrlptah Stt: "What
somever yo' hastest fer to do you orter
dust wld all yer hawt an' mine an'
streh'th" an' above all things doan'
prttnostlcrate.'
'"Don't whlchtycrate, Uncle Rufus ':
What do you mean?' I asked.
"1 means, doan' prognosticate,
Brudder Collyer. Doan' put oft till
nex' week what yer orter done las'
year. Time, Brudder Collyer, Is a
mighty hand hoes to hab.' Tharfo' it
behoofs you, as Scrlptah says, to ketch
her by de fetlock ef yer wanter come
under he wlah befo' he does. Tou heah
me?'"
A funny thing happened In the great
memorial church built to the memory
of Adoniram Judson, the famous Bap
tist missionary. It Was built in the
center of a poor district in New Tork
where they are not famous for gener
osity in supporting the church. The
missionary's son, Dr. Edward Judson,
arrived the church was crowded
At the close of the service a collec
tion for the poor was taken. After the
treasurer had counted the contents of
the collection box carefully he rose
sadly and whispered to the clergyman
that the collection amounted to two
dollars and twenty-three cents. Then
Dr. Judson held up his left hand, as
If delivering a benediction, and closed
wtth these feeling remarks:
"My dear, beloved brethren I thank
you for coming to oar religious feast.
We have tried to reach the poor of
New Tork and induce them to come
to our church and break the bread of
life. I Infer from the amount of the
collection Just taken two dollars and
twenty cents that they all have come.
"Arise and sing:
"Tm a sinner, poor and lowly,
Striving for a Savior's love."
I have heard of poor and sad con
gregatlons, but the saddest preacher
I ever knew went from Posey county,
Indiana, to Pike county, Missouri
(where John Hay discovered Little
Breeches and Jim Bludao.) He was
starving to death on donations of cat
fish, possum and a hundred-dollar sal
ary. Finally he made up his mind to
go away. With wet eyes he stood up
In the prayer meeting to bid good-by
to his weeping congregation.
"Brothers and sisters." he said, wlp
ing his eyes on his red bandana hand
kerchief, "I've called you together to
night to .say farewell. The Lord has
called me to another place. I don't
think the Lord loves this people much;
for none of you seem to die. He doesn't
seem to want you. And you don't
seem to love each other; for I've never
married any of you. And I don't think
you love me; for you don't pay me my
salary and your donations are moldy
fruits and wormy apples. "By their
fruit ye shall know them.'
"And now, brothers and sisters, I am
going to a better place. I've been ap
pointed chaplain to the penitentiary
at Joliet. 'Where I go ye cannot come,
but I go to prepare a place for you.'"
