Greeley on Salvation.
One afternoon Horace Oreoloy xrnn
Heated In tbc Tribune office absorbed
In writing, when n tall, solemn man
came in and stood respectfully by his
desk. After awhile Mr. Greeley looked

"Well, what is Itr
"I have railed," said the stranger, in
measured pulpit voice, "to invite pe
runlary assistance for our great work
In the .Five Toints Mission."
"What's the work?" said Greeley,
till writing vigorously.
"'The salvation of souls."
"Not a cent:" said Greeley. "Not a
cent to save souls! Most of 'era ought
to be damned!"
A prize of tM was paid for the foregoing
anecdote to Thos. L Uauon, GI011 Ridge,
N. J. ,
Pray thee, put the sermon by vex my
soul no more with creeds;
They are only stones nnd husks to my
hungry spirit's needs.
I am tired of striving sects, with their
Ah, for me death holds no terror but the
fear of losing thee!
In a heaven apart from thee could my
exiled soul rejoice?
Could 1 Join the angels' song, missing
theme thy tender voice?
What to me were pales of pearl If they
parted thee nnd me?
What the streets so fair and golden If I
walked them seeking thee?
What to me the piiFturcs green where thy
feet could never be?
What the paths beside still waters If thou

Ah. wherever after death my still faith

Kainls may e ill II Mlsa or woe; they may
name it heaven ..r In II
By thee only. O beloved, will my Joy or

shall tii.il my heaven beside thee, or my
hell where thou nrl not!

It Worked a Cure.
A certain clergyman in Kichraond,
ays Success, has had in his employ
for so long a time a negro named Ju
lian that the latter had come to regard
himself as something of n confidential
adviser to the divine.
Early one Sunday morning the pastor
nwoke feeling decidedly ill. After a
futile attempt at hrcakfast he sum
moned his old faithful servitor, saying:
"Julian. I want you 1o go to my ns
fiirtant, Mr. Wank, and tell him that,
s 1 am unwell, he will officiate for
tne In this morning' service."
At this Julian demurred and after
some argument persuaded his master
that he would feel better If lie officiat
ed as usual. Tliis tlie latter did. and,
as predicted by the darky, he did re
turn home feellns much letter.
"Tou'se hotter, suh?" asked the
tervnnt. meeting his master at the
"Very much better, thank yon. Ju
lian.; The darky grinned. "What did 1 tell
yon. suh? 1 knowed yon would be nil
right Just ns soon as you got that, ser

Schopenhauer on Kinship.
The twin rep of till pleasure and delight
Is the feeling of kinship. Even with the
sense of beauty It Is unquestionably
our own species In the animal world,
nnd then again our own race, that ap
pears to us the fairest. So, too. In In
tercourse with others, every man shows
a decided preference for those who re
semble him, and a blockhead will find
the society of another blockhead In
comparably more pleasant than that of

Two boys in the Sunday school, who
Blood at the head of the class, were
invariably aikcd the same questions,
which were, "Who made you?" and
"To whatdo you return V" to which the
firr.t boy always replied, "God uiudc
me," and (he second boy answered,
"Dust of the earth."
On this occasion the first boy was
absent, so the first question, "Who
made you 7" was addressed to the sec
"Dust of the earth." he replied.
"Quite wrong. Tommy. !od made

Invited to the banquet, and just before
the hour the confectioner, who had
been making a large ornament for the
table, sent word that he had spoiled
the piece. "You!" exclaimed the head
servant iiv astonishment. "And who
are you?" VI am Antonio Canova, the
grandson of Tisano the stonecutter."
replied tliepale fnced little fellow..
The pcrvant was at h:s wit's end, so he
told Antonio to go ahead and see what
he could do. Culling for s:me butter,
the scullion quickly molded a large
crouching lion, which the admiring
major douio placed upon the table.
Dinner was announced, and muuy of
the most noted merchants, princes and
noblemen of Venice were ushered Into
the dining room. Among them were
skilled critics of art work. They looked
at the lion long and carefully and ask
ed Signor Fuliero whut great sculptor
had been persuaded to wuste his skill
npon a work In such a temporary ma
terial. Fa Hero could not tell, so he
asked the head servant, who brought
Antonio lefore the company.
When the distinguished guests learn
ed that the lion had been made In a
short time by a scullion, the dinner
was turned into a feast In his honor.
8ome may not have heard how the boy
Antonio took advantage of this first
great opportunity, but all know of
Canova, one of the greatest sculptor
of all time.

Little Teii Browu was a strenuous
