A visiting divine consented to preach
one sabbath last summer, and, notice
being given, quite a congregation of
hotel guests and resident neighbors
as^ rnl'la I. In opening the services
the preacher suggested that, as the
chapt 1 was provided with no musical
instruineut, perhap- some one present
uould*start a hymn, in which the con
gregation could join. A brief pause
ensued, and then the Cungregi lion
was convulsed at hearing an old lidy
str.ke up, in a cracked voice,
“Believing we rejoice
To see the cuss removed.”
A* 0" o ie ‘j ined in,’ the old lady
did not proceed f «r with the hymn,
and an awkward contretemps seemed
imminent. Tin? clergyman was quick­
witted, however, and turned the ludi-
crons ii cident to good account. He
xuielly arose and annosneed as his
trx’ the words, “Bi hexing we rejoice,”
from which he preache«! an excellent
sermon, one ihit under the peculiar
circumstances, made a deep impression.

know why she caused such a sensa­

A Bit of Vandalism.
Among Mr. Sumner's servants the
one whom he most highly valued was
an elderly* Irish woman, Margaret
Coleman. She was his housekeeper
for the last two years, und now be­
comes a historic character.
Prior to eutering Mr. Sumner’s serv­
ice Margaret was of the household of
William II. Seward. When, on thr
14th of April, 1865, the night of the as­
sassination of President Lincoln, an at­
tempt was made on the life of Mr.
Seward, she was one of those in charge
of his room, he then being confined to
his bed from the effects of a fall from
his carriage. Payne, the would-be as­
sassin, was met by Mr. Frederick Sew­
ard at the head of the stairs. After
wounding him severely and leaving
him seemingly dead, Payne passed
over his body to reach the room of his
father. The noise had notified Mar­
garet, who was in her own room on the
story above, of Payne’s approach, and
his object. As Payne entered the sick
room, Robinson, the male nurse, then
there, confronted him. Payne struck
Robinson to the ground with his knife,
nnd then sprang nt the Secretary.
Mr. Seward was in a half-sitting
posture, leaning his back against
a sick-chiiir placed in the bed for
his support. Realizing Payne’s object,
he pulled the bed clothing over his head
for his protection. Payne struck him
a number^of timcfy One blow was so
well aimed that it passed through the
bed clothes, through his cheek into his
neck on the right side, and another on
the left side cut his neck. .
Meantime all this was passing quicker
than it can be told. Margaret had
sprung upon him from behind, and
Robinson had gathered himself up
sufficiently to confront the assassin.
Major A. H. Seward, Miss Fannie
Seward and some of the servants of the
household were now entering the room,
and Payne fought his way out from
among them. Margaret was struck in
he face, apparently by Payne’s
clenched fist, so that her face was
painful and discolored for some time,
and she was buried against the door­
jamb with such force as to break her
collar-bone. Major Seward was slightly
cut in several places. But none of the
women except Margaret was in any
injured. Payne, after cutting his way
out. mounted his horse and escaped.
Meantime Mr. Seward had apparently
disappeared, and for a moment
had thrown him out of
the window. He had, however, rolled
himself in his bed clothing, and fallen
between the bed and tho wall, but was
so suspended by the clothing that he
had not reached the floor, Margaret
pulled him up, unrolled him, now
nearly smothered in the blankets and
the blood, and assisted in doing what
was necessary before she found out
how much she herself was injured. She
recovered, however, sufficiently to con­
tinue to act as head nurse to Secretary
Seward, to Mr. Frederick Seward and
Mrs. Seward, who never recovered
from the shock of that night, and who
died in Margaret’s arms, and, finally,
as nurse to Miss Fannie Seward- She
saw her pass away within the year.
When Mr. Fish succeeded Mr. Sewarc.
as Secretary of State, he took certain
of the Seward servants, who agreed to
stay with him until Mrs. Fish brought
her own establishment to Washington.
So Margaret remained witA the new
Secretary of State for six months, and
then went to Mr. Summer, with whom
she remained until his death. Tho ar­
rangement was particularly agre( able
to the ladies whom Mr. Sumner re­
ceived, as most of them had been ac­
customed to her friendly ministrations
when visiting at the Seward and Fish
houses. — Cosmopolitan.
A Sample of Turkish Justice.
You have often read wondrous and
lying tales of justice administered with
unerring judgment in Turkey. Hero is a
true story of Turkish justice: A drovei
complained to a cross-legged magnate
at Rodosto that he had been robbed oi
two oxen. Three Turkish gendarmes
were sent to recover the property, and
soon discovered two peasants going ofi
with tw«> ox«»n. One of the men was
shot dead. The other escaped, and th«
policemen hastily buried their man and
came hack in triumph witn two oxen.
But the man said those oxen had noi
been stolen from him, an«l it was plain
that the peasant had been shot for driv­
ing his own cattle. The situation was
uncomfortable but Turkish diplomacy
fixed things. Another man was found
to swear be had been robbed of the two
oxen, a nd they were turned over to
Mm, which relieved the gendarmes
frsm guilt. They did not go unpun­
ished, however, for they had buried the
<tea«l peasant without first washing the
body, which in Turkey is a crime ex­
cept in case of a soldier killed in battle.
For that negligence they were impris
oned.— Levant Herald.

lire. Hew York’s fire department alone
costs more than $1,000,000 annually;
its insurance patrol more than $10d,-
The principal insurance oompanie«,
actuated by such considerations, have
adopted a plan which is so simple and
promises to be so effecthR»» that it de­
servos to have public attention called
to it.
They have printe«! and propose to dis­
tribute gratuitously through every builtl-
ingin the city, a set of “Fire Cautions.”
Their idea is that if these are posted in
conspicuous places in office buildings,
factories, tenement houses and the like,
the practical cautions they embody
will not be apt to be forgotten. Cer­
tainly, if they are remembered and al­
ways carefully observed, accidental
tires would be few and far between.
Ths cautions are given below. It
can be seen that they are sensible,
practical and intelligible:
Don’t allow stoves or heaters on ydiir
premises which are n<jft securely set on
stone, cemented brick or metal, and be
sure that all woodwork near the stoves
or pipes is carefully protected with
Don’t allow any loose-jointed gas
brackets on your promises which could
be swung against woodwork, or any
gas brackets without wire screens or
globoii, if hay. straw, light materials or
window curtains are near them.
Don’t allow any electric lights or
wires on your premises which are nor
properly protected.
Don’t allow steam-pipes to be in con­
tact with wood or intlaunnable ma­
Don’t allow any kerosene oil lamps
ts be rilled after dark. Filling lamps
near n lire is dangeroas.
Don’t forget to keep the lamps filled,
and wicks in goodoAter. When the oil
is low it generates gas: which is liable
to explode.
Don’t allow’benzine, gasoline, naptha
or explosives in your place. Your in­
surance policy prohibits it.
Don't allow aslui.s to bo put in a
wooden box or barrel in your building.
Always have an iron ash can.
Don’t allow any oily waste or rags to
be thrown on tho floor, but only in a
metal can, with cover, and have them
taken out of the building every night;
•hey are self-igniting.
Don’t allow any greasy or oily rags
or papers to be mixed up W’itli clean

pings to remain in your place (even if
