A MINISTER'S COURTESY.
Mr. Uv used to tell a little story of a
brother clergyman, Rev. Mr. Gay of Huf
field, which story waa a good illustration
of Yankee 'cuteness.' Several similar an
ecdotes have appeared in print, but this
is a genuine "simon-pure," I believe.
Among Mr. Gay's parishioners was a
well-to-do farmer, named, we will say,
Brown, who was especially generous in
his free-will tithes to the good minister.
This farmer's errand and "chore" boy,
getting big enough to take his place at the
plough, a new boy was taken to service
a rough, untrained little fellow, I think
from the poor-house. To him tbe promo
ted boy discoursed quite condescending
ly : "You have got into a pretty nice
I tU To vl ai.'t if you tlVw
they'll use yon well, give you plenty of
good victuals, a suit of Sunday clothes,
winter clothes, winter schoolin', and not
work you tew hard. But one thing yon
will have to go on errands to the minis
ter's pretty often, and lug big baskets of
things ; and the worst of it is that you'll
nvitp trt Tiolbii.fr Vint 1 1. a n V a frnm tbn
parson and his folks not so much as a
shillin' for your pains."
Johnny heard and pondered, and it hap
pened that the very next morning he was
sent to the minister's with a heavy quar-'
ter of veal, about as much as he could
carry. The way was long and the weath
er was warm, and when he reached the
parsonage he was not in tbe sweetest tem
pers. He marched into the breakfast
room without knocking, or removing his
hat, and setting-down his basket, he said
"Mr. Gay, Mr. Brown has sent yon
this here quarter of veal.'
"Ab ! Indeed, said tbe minister bland
ly. "I ani obliged to him. Are you Mr.
Brown's new boy T"
"Well, my lad, when you have been in
his family a while longer your manners
will doubtless improve."
" hy, what s tbe matter with my man
ners 1" asked tbe hoy with a look of stu
"Why, my son, they are a little abrupt
and discourteous. Now your way of pre
sen ting Mr. Brownjij present was not just
bat it should lJrwwJecn. I think I can
show you, so that you will Jroow just how
to do it next time. I will personate yon,
and ypu may pretend that you are me,
lor a few minutes. r-
Saying this, the minister took Up the
basket, went into the entry, and closed
tbe door. Then he knocked gently.
The boy, having seated himself in' the
minister's chair, and put on a grave and
reverend aspect, called eut, "Come in."
Entering very quietly and deferential
ly, though with difficulty preserving his
ravrtr, holding his hat in one hand and
be basket in the other,, the minister aps
proached his small prdiffSfed said, wit Ii
a law how, ' ' M rJko w n TWtwtHi i I compli
ments, and becssTVuii will accept this
quarter of veal, Mr. Gay."
' i am very much oblijred to Mr. Hi own,
and to you too, my fine boy," said John-
ii m n il Ii ui air at i ho utmost seriousness:
"but it seems to me that its a big Joed for
so small a lad to carry. Just take it into
tbe kitchen and ask Mrs. Gay to give you
a quarter of a dollar." '
Nobody ever onjpyed this story more
then Mr. Gay, except, perhaps, Mrs. Gay,
who promptly paid over the quarter to
the clever little actor.
He ought to have become a great law
yer. Perhaps he did, and ended his days
on the bench. Indeptndyif.
