C 1 o s s o n It Was tt'BuMC Slander. Walkerton Independent: Our devout friend, Parson Enyart, the big editor ol the Christian Advance, alias ATaey Monitor, on last, Sunday evening- attended his favorite church, the M E. of that place, and during the services fell asleep to the great annoyance o/ those seated near him. He is said to have snored so loudly that none \rithin twenty feet of him could hear scarcely a word of the sermon. The Parson denies that he slept, but twenty or more perfectly reliable witnesses attest the truth of the above. '-t is feared that the Parson is suffer- ng from torpor of the liver, which always produces a soporific effect. Macy. Monitor: The non-partisan editor of the Independent •-codded" agaiu. During the revival season we have reprimanded quite severely two carpenters, one 'merchant, and a bald- headed stone mason of this place, for their sleeping during services, and to get even with us, last Monday morning a week ago they purloined a two- cent postage stamp and a copy of the Independent from this office, and proceeded to address the non-partisan editor as follows: Macey, ind., Jan, 12, '91.

At a meeting of representatives 'of the big four gas cities held at Anderson Wednesday evening, a legislative committee was appointed. This committee will meet at the Bates House, Indianapolis, next Thursday. Bills asking for a natural gas inspector, to reappraise real estate in the gas cities, and to prevent the waste of gas in furnaces and the burning of it in flambeaux will Be proposed, and passage by the Legislature urged. Wednesday the . natural gas company shut oft the supply of gas to the Perkins Hotel at Lebanon because the proprietor persisted in using it for illuminating purposes, and suit will be brought to compel the company to observe the conditions of its charter. The company claims that the limited supply does not warrant its use for such purposes.

"1 remember,"'said the raconteur of the party, "a dispensation of what'may he called Spartan justice. , It happened when 1 was -i boy and made' a lasting impression, as incidents of the kind do on the youthful mind. '•Our folks had some old silver spoons that had been in. constant-service for generations. nnd.we'i;e small and thin, and carried in their.'.shallow bowls the marks of many teeth.. Each spoon had a history, as spoon's- did have in those days, and they were looked after with the greatest care. My mother placed them under her pillow every night, and the whole family would "b'e regularly awakened by a midnight clatter of rattling- spoons, as they hadarcstlessliabit of falling out of bed. so their value was enhanced by the many sleepless nights they cost. "Well, one of those precious spoons was missing, and tlieve was a great to- do over it. The servants were all questioned, but no one had seen the missing spoon. That night a colored girl, who had been taken in some months before by my mother, and who was a brig-lit, and rather precocious character, told of seeing a new hired man on the premises hiding something in his jacket. ' She essayed to find the jacket, and, sure enough, between the lining and the outside was found the.lost.spoon. "My mother was so happy in recover- ing'her lost property that'she wanted .the man to go scot free. Not so my father, who was a solemn churchgoer. 'I will g-ive him a lecture on the s?n of stealing,' he said, 'and keep him. as he is a useful man. I am very sure he will never steal from us again.'" "I accompanied my father to the kitchen, where the man was raking ashes over the coals of a hot fire and preparing to g-o to bed. He sat submissively still as my father appeared carrying a large Bible, and he listened to the lecture that was delivered with an unmoved .countenance. I slept and awakened several times before it was finished. My father's solemn, monotonous voice affected me like a soporific, and ! did not by to fathom the l;in<>ua"-e he used. "The culprit was a "German, and I have since learned that he did not-understand one word my father said to him—not even the nature of the accusation against him. I thought then, as I listened to my father's bass tones in that grim monologue, that the punishment was adequate to the sin. I had been lectured myself, and I would have confessed to almost any thing to have 'escaped the consequences, "The lecture was supplemented by a prayer, in which my father implored divine forgiveness for the offender. The German took it all in good part, and remained in. his situation, but was no uoubt carefully watched. Some years ago the colored girl acknowledged that she had put the spoon in his jacket in order to get rid of him and gratify her love of mischief. As he never alluded to it in any way, we could not tell what he thought of the services on that night, or how much of""the moral lecture had ^een comprehended. But I am certain he never understood the criminal characteristics of the occasion."—Detroit Free Press. LEAVE YOUR ORDER, Suits made to order, $15 All- wool Pants $3. . Overcoats to -order," 1 .

So singularly do the descriptions of . globular lightning tally with this well-known phenomenon, that this explanation would be irresistible were it not for the fact that these portentous spheres "are alleged to terminate their alarming promenades by a deafening explosion. On the. other hand, it is impossible to explain away the many records of persons who have seen the slowly moving globes of fire. Among these persons was the electrician Cavallo, -who Saw a luminous ball slowly ascend the Btemof a Leyden jar, then slowly descend and burst with a'load report. At a recent meeting of. the.

A Distinct Tj-p«, IJotli "in Aspect and Dialect, From the Xegrocg of the Interior, It is of the rice-fields of the tide-lands of the Georgia and Carolina coast, and ibout of the adjacent islands, that we would speak.

A well-known New Yorker dining in an uptown restaurant the other day suddenly turned aside from the table, excused himself to his companions, and, stooping over a,glass of water, seemed to cover it with his mouth,and to bend himself almost double.

The' one was prim and precise, specially careful of his linen,quiet in speech and manner; the other, careless as to dress, and a very John Bull in ways and' words. The latter had formed the habit of taking snuff, very much to the disgust of his friend, who abhorred all such practices. One''day,, at a ministers' meeting," Mr. B. pulled out his snuff-box, tapped it in orthodox fashion, and took a hearty pinch, doubtless making all the noises usually made by snuft'-takers. Mr. A^, thinking to rebuke,, him, said, in his mildest tones: "Mr. B., how much does jit cost you a year for snuff?" "Don't • know," was the reply; "perhaps about as much as it does you for starch." —"I suppose you have a bigger trade when" it-rains than when it doesn't rain?" he said to. the dealer in umbrellas.
