A Sky Parlor.

When Mr. Chamberlain traveled to
Delarcy's country he found that
the only hall available was very
small for the audience be wished to
address. "It me otler you my
parlor," said Delarey. Mr. Cham
berlain consented, but when he
reached the ruins of Dclarey's
house ho found a platform built
out on the open veldt. "But where
ia the parlor?" asked the states
man. "That is the only parlor you
hav left me." replied the soldier.

build his dwelling, lie desires it to
remain a perpetual memorial. Lon
