When I was younger, a few thought
less words once came near losing ine
a good job, and the way I escaped
beinr fired was rather amusing. II
happened like this:
"I had charge of the men's furnish
ings counter in a large clothing store
and the pay being first rate and
chance of promotion excellent I was
naturally anxious to hold on to the
lob. One mornhig, however, I was
feeling all out of scu ts and was just
developing an ugly heivdaclie, when
a niau caine in and asked to see some

would have kept my temper, but my
head was throbbing, and when he
pawed over the stock, finding fault

statements as to quality I began
'i' liiallv 1 ooutiln t stand it any
longer. 'If you really want a scarf,
I said, you'll find plenty here Lhat
I dare say, are as good as anything
you've been accustomed to wear.
Just then I happened to look up and
caught sight of a floorwalker stand
ing in a rear aisle- and making
frantic gestures to me with his hands
!'If you'll wait a moment,' I said
to tho customer,, wondering win
the dickens was up I'll see if can
find som-Vthing else otVic other
side.' With thai J hurried over to
where the floorwalker was standing.
What's.tJi! inatter? I asked in a low
"Great Scott, man,' he whispered,
that's the boss!'
"The store, as I should havo ex
plained, was the southern branch of
a New York establishment, and: dur
ing the time I had been there- the
head of the firm had never before
paid it a visit in person. G6nsequetly
I didn't know him by sight, and my
blood ran cold when. I' realized how
hopelessly I had rammed my foot in
to it. During the next five seconds
I did some (juick thinking, and among
thcr things that came crowding
into my mind was the fact that the
boss had been married only a short j
time before. That gave me an idea..
I'm going back, I whispered it,
the floorwalker, and in a minuto or
two you send one of the boys to nie
with a piece of folded letter paper.
"What are you up to? he asked.
"Nevermind, said L You do ex
actly as I say. Let him just hand
me the paper and ,alk off. I
hurried back to the counter and
found my man looking black as thun

ever, but that's, all wc have. If noth

The " Reworded M Bible.
Dr. Hayman, an English divine,
not content with the St. James Bible
nor yet with the revised version, has
prepared a "reworded" version of
parts of the New Testament. This
latest attempt to "tinker" the Scrip
vui "s apiear9 to bo meeting with a
very cold reception. Indeed it in
volves no bias of opinion to say that
an examination of the reworded
Testament and a comparison of it
with the. St. James version readily
shows the inadequacy and weakness
of the new attempt. A few speci
men passages will be interesting
hci-i The well-meant purpose of
Dr. Hayinan. is to prcsont the Scrip
tures in a form of words more intel
ligible to the masses than the ruggr d
and often archaic diction of the tran
slation of 1011.
For instance, St. Paul's sentence,
"For that he is dead is free from
sin," is rendered, For the dead to
sin is enfranchised from its pewer."
All day long I have stretched forth F
my hands unto a disobedient and
gainsaying people" is changed into,
"All day long I stretch forth my
hands toward a peoplo refractory
and recusant." Paul's entreaty to
to tho Christians at Corinth becomes
."Exchange a kiss of sanctity
one another," iustcad of "Greei one
another with a holy kisB,"" '
St. Paul says, in the old Version:
"So fight I not as.cai- that beateth
the air. Jktt T kept uhdev my body
anlcVring it into subiectio a;'lest that
by any means, when Triple preached
unto others,. I myself should be a
castaway."' This befellows:
"I accordingly so run as if I meant
to winj and' so plr.nt my hits not as
idly sparring; bu' I' nit home at my
own fleshy frair.e, and I tame it into
subjection; for fear I who proclaim
:the contest tb others should come to
;te rejected ;nyself.
