II is said that recently a preach
er, after his sermon, requeued
everyone in his congregation
who were paying their debts to
?tand up. In&antly every man
woman and child with one ex
ception, arose to their feet. I le
seated the crowd and then said,
"Let every man who not paying
his debts, &and up." The excep
tion noted, a careworn, hungry
looking clothed in his la& sum
mer's suit individual, slowly as
sumed a perpendicular position
and leaned upon the back of a
bench in front of him. "How is
i?, my friend," asked the miniver,
"that you arc the only man In
this large congregation that is
not able to meet his obligations?"
"1 publish a newspaper," he
meekly replied, "and my breth
ren here who have ju?t ?tood up
are all subscribers and?" "Let
us pray," exclaimed the mtnisler.
The ladies, bless 'em, are up to
their chin in bouse cleaning, Ihe
house is upside down, and man
hath no where to lay his head.
They scrub and brush, and du&
the entire year, and le& some
moat tnoy liave oscnred the im
plements of wirfarc, each spring
there is a complete turning of
things inside out and upside
down, but thank fortune it is
juil for a season and joy cometh
in the morning when the flavor
of c'eauliness is sweet to the
no&rU and pence to the weary
souL It is well for man to sub
mit to the eternal fitness' of
things and abide the linic.

until the primaries and precinct
meetings on the 16th of May,
and consequently will have to
rely upon my supporters and
friends to look out for my inter
esls during the campaign.
I desire to be re- nominated
and re-elected because I wish
the office, end for the further
reason that I desire; that my of
ficial record in the conduct of
the office ol Solicitor shall be
appoved by the people.
