MELVIN, STEELE . JOHNSON, EDITORS AND P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 8 HE QUOTED, DIDN'T STEAL. Processor Croon's Kraulc Answer to a Charge of Plagiarism. In these days of accusations of plagiarisms against clergymen tho case of CosmuH Green, profefcbor of the Latin tongue in Princeton college, is worthy of note. Professor Green preached only occasionally in term time, as he had much other work to do. One day he was summoned hastily to officiate in the place of a minister who had been suddenly taken ill. He had barely time to catch the train, much less to prepare an especial discourse. He ,. caught up a half dozen manuscripts from the drawer in his library table and hurried away to preach in his sick brother's stead. It was a good sermon. Every oao was well pleased, every one indeed but an old Scotch gardener, who s;it far to the rear shaking his head gravely from time to time. "Aye, it was true gospel," he confided to a member of the congregation afterward, "and weel delivered, but I've heerd it before this on the ither side many years gone by." His confidant was a lawyer and set about investigating. In a New York library he found a book of , "Sermons by Scotch Divines," which contained tho substance of the suspected sermon so far as ho could recall it after having not paid especial heed to it when it was delivered. The lawyer took a serious view of the case, and waiting until the presbytery met he presented the facts and argued that they warranted an investigation. The presbytery agreed and summoned Professor Green. "Keally, I don't recollect," said the professor to the investigating committee, "but if you'll send to tho house for the permon 1 may bo able to clear the matter up." The document was brought and read aloud while twocommitteemon watched the "Sermons of Scotch Di- vinos." The manuscript and the . printed page tallied exactly. Things looked dark for the professor of Latin. When the reading was done, how"ever, he said the whole story had come back to him clearly. He had left in a great hurry to meet the call and had not had time to eelect a sermon. Indeed he was not aware of the circumstances of his summons further than that he was wanted immediately. He had no time to inquire or to look over his manuscripts to select. He had "out and run." ""When I arrived at Dr. Blank's," he continued, "and had time to find out what the sermon was for and to look over the manuscripts I had taken with me, I found that only one . of them was in the least appropriate --the one your honorable body has just heard read: It is a copy word for word which I made when I was a student here in the seminary. I was earning my way through then and at that particular timo had to preach two sermons a week. Two were sometimes more than I had time to prepare, for I had much studying to do. If you will notice at the end of this manuscript, there are the date and the statement whence the words were taken and their author. "I did not mention their source when I read them last spring because the author's name would not have given added weight thereto. Nor did I wish my hearers to infer I considered them hardly worthy an original and special effort. Had I been notified two days earlier I should have written especially for them to the best of rny ability; as it was, it was by an accident due to necessary haste that I took the copied manuscript with me and an accident again that among the half dozen I took the copy was the only one at all appropriate." 'The investigating committee exonerated Professor Cosmus Green. --New York Press. All Sorts of Tricks. "Oh, I guess we" have our experiences," laughed the tire insurance agent. "We are just liko others who have to deal with all kinds of people. "Take the smart Alecks, for instance. They give us a whirl once in awhile, but we generally manage to get as good as a draw with them. - "One shrewd old chap had grown rich out of our company, and when he had built an elegant new store and stocked it with goods he came to us again for insurance. I refused him, but he was persistent, and 1 finally assented on condition that he hang a gross of band grenades in the place. After I had seen them properly distributed I sent an old chum of his up to get the real lay of tho land, for I was still suspicious. This is what the cronies said to each other: " "What is them things, Ike?' " 'Hand grenades.' " 'What's hand grenades?' " '1 don't know what was in 'em at first, but they're full of kerosene oil now.' "Wo canceled the policy."--Detroit Free Press. A Noted Hoy Fancier.

"--Chicago Eeooid DIDN'T KNOW ADOLPHUS. lit! \V:n No Call, but Merely Dumoustrnt- iiiR the Tnluu of His Goods. Tho yoimg mail who bad insinuated himself into the acquaintance of everybody in tho party was a striking example of how the bittor nay be mingled with the sweet, Tlio young ·womon pronounced him .ovely, and tho young meu linked t name with fierce though unut- ;eied maledictions. It was n striking illustration of tho ease with which «i man's motivos may be mis. judged. Kis first name was .Adol- ihus, which fact was calculated to lamago his popularity arnoug the men from tho first. They were admiring the scenery. "See how that mountain rises in the distance," exclaimed one girl. "It's great," said Charley Chug:ins, with enthusiasm. "You wouldn't think it's as big is it roally is to look at it from iere,'' remarked Dicky Dodd. "You'd think it was big enough f you had to walk to tho top, as I lave," commented Billy Bliven vi- raciously. "It reminds me," Aclolphus mur. inured, "that the heights by great uen reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night." The young men glared at him, but ono of the girls whispered to the others: "Isn't he lovely?" "Have you heard about Maine's engagement?" ono of the young women remarked, after a pause. "Yes," replied another. "She has broken it. Ho has sent her back all her letters and she has returned his ring." Billy Bliven was about to offer some opinion when Adolphus interjected : "To the noble mind rich gifts wax poor when donors prove unkind." Tho girls looked at one another with ecstatic approval. "Mamo is a nice girl," said one. Then, turning to Adolphus, she said, 'Do you know her?" "Yes," he answered. "I met her once and found her charming. When she had passed, it seemed like the ceasing of exquisite music." "The trouble was that she thought he was marrying her for her money," commented the informant. "Ah," cnme the response, with a deep sigh, "to whom oan riches give repute or trust, content or pleasure, but the good and just?" "I honestly think that Mame feels worse about it than he does," commented the informant. "Yes," said Adolphus. "Man's ove is of man's life a thing^ apart; tis woman's whole existence." Ho had the conversation all his own way after that. Some of the other young men talked about baseball and kindred topics, but most of hem lagged along in gloomy silence. When the girls had left them, they got together and held on indignation meeting. "It's an outrage," said one. "I'll bet he's an unmitigated cad," exclaimed another, who had not observed the approach of Adolphus. "Anything going wrong?" usked that young gentleman genially. "Yes, there is something going rong,'' replied Billy Bliven, who is noted for his directness of speech. 'We don't like tho way you talk. We are plain people, and we're tired of hearing you try to show off every inie any of us opens his mouth." "I think I have succeeded iuinak- ng an impression on the ladies, "replied Adolphus complacently. "You don't expect us to be happy over that, do you, when the means by which you did it was to provoke iomparisous to our disadvantages" "I can understand your feelings. But you oan't blame a man for doing business in a businesslike manner," he proceeded soothingly. "Do you mean to say that you make a business of this sort of things" "Every man who engages in commerce ought to be prepared to demonstrate the value of his wares. That," he went on, while reaching into his inside vest pocket, "is what I have been engaged iu doing for your benefit. I have here a little volume for whioh I am sole agent. It is entitled 'Conversation Made Easy; or, One Thousand Selected Quotations Suited to All Emergencies. ' Tho type is clear, the paper good, and yet it is so compact that it may be carried without attracting attention, so as to be available for any occasion. The publishers of this work are not mercenary persons. Realizing that the love of money IH the root of all evil, they are content to do good by stealth and blush to find it fame. I am, for that reason, enabled to offer you this work, whose value is inestimable, at the absurdly low figure of §2 -a copy.' 1 --Washington Star. A Genuine Delight.

Francis Newman has been gener ally described by the papers as u "crank" and "faddist," but the fact is that all the members of the family were more or less eccentric. When Thomas ilozley was one of the principal leader writers on The Times, he never reached his home until between 3 and 4 in the morn ing, but his wife, sister of Cardinal Newman, nevertheless insisted on his being down to road prayers to the family and servants at 8 o'clock. When the future cardinal was loading theOxtoi'd movement, his mother and sisters, then living near Oxford, were such austere Calvinist that they would not allow the famous "Tracts For the Times" to be brought into their house.--London Truth.
