A certain Congregational preacher
in Ohio, was in the habit of sometimes
drawing upon a box of sermons be
queathed him by his father, who was
also a minister. Upon oue occasion he
got hold of a sermon, by mistake,
which the old gentleman once preach

opened well, and the congregation
were becoming deeply interested,
when all at once the parson surprised
them with the information that, "had

old safes from the fire, but in conse

has languished. Now, however, they
are taking the safes out of broken sav

reach of the smells of the river.St.
