Time was when folks seemed to
think HI health a mark of spirituality.
They were shocked when Emerson
said, “ A sick man Is a rascal.” Some
times piety was a disease of the liver;
now we think differently concerning
health. Then success had to come
first; now we say health first. Amos
R Wells says: "It makes no difference
how well you can write short stories
If tuberculosis Is fastened on you, nor
how persuasively you can preach If
jou have persistent nervous head
aches, nor what skillful mechanic you
are If you have overstrained your
heart, nor how divinely you sing If
your liver Is out o f order, nor what
avenue o f usefulness Is open before
you If It Is blocked by bodily disabili
ties. If you are a fool with your body
don't expect to be a sage with your
mind. First make the physical basis
sound and sweet and then God will let
you build upon It a life to bis glory
and your Joy.” Good! Solomon's tem
pie or the temple o f Diana at Ephesus
Is not to be compared In spiritual value
to the temple o f the body. God comes
down In mysterious fashion and dwells
with us In the temple o f flesh. We
must keep It sweet and clean and pure
without and within.

Jonathan Swift once preached a
charity sermon the length o f which
wearied many o f his hearers. The
fact came to his knowledge, and
when a few months later it fell to
him to preach a similar sermon in
the same place he determined to
profit by the criticism.
His text was, “ He that hath pity
upon the poor lendeth unto the
Lord, and that which he hath giv
en will he pay him again.” And aft
er repeating these words in a more
than commonly emphatic tone the
dean added; “ Now, my beloved
brethren, you hear the terms of
this loan; if you like the security
down with your dust!”
The quaintness and brevity of the
sermon are said to have brought
forth an unusually large contribu
tion.— Detroit Free Press.

A n Eocentric W ill.
In the year 1736 a gentleman liv
ing in England named Samuel Bald-
wyn died after a somewhat unhap
py married life. By hia will Mr.
Baldwyn left his property to hia
young wife on the condition that
6he should from time to time dance
upon his grave. The motive for
this strange request was evident
when the instructions for his inter
ment were read. Mr. Baldwyn de
sired that his remains should be
taken by boat to the Needles and
then cast into the sea. This singu
lar wish enabled him to revenge
hi inself on his wife for past dis
agreements, and the widow lost the
property, as she could not fulfill the
conditions of her husband’s bequest.

clergymen bearing the name of
Tears came to say adieu to his bish

son said: “ Goodby, my lord. I hope
we may meet again, but if not here
in some better place.”
The bishop replied, “ I fear the
latter is unlikely, as there are no

“ No doubt,” wittily answered the
parson, “ you are right that our
