TlicMiirtoloiiN Eloquence of an Old
Time Metliodlht Dtsliop.
(I'rom Youth's: Companion )
"Eloquence is sjieaLing out out of the
abundance of the heart, the onlyn source
from which truth can flow in a paEsionale,
pereuasie torrent." This remark of Ju
lius Hare is illustrated by a story told of
the e-Ioquent Methodist bishop, the late Dr.
Bishop Simpson preached some years ago
In the Memorial Hall, London. Tor half an
hour he simke quietli, without gesticula
tion or uplifting of his oice; then, pictur
ing t lie Son of God, bearing out eiru In his
own body on the tree, he slopped, as if laden
with an immeasurable bunlen, and rising
to his full height, he teemed to liirow it
from hiin, crying:
"How far? As far as the cast la from the
west, so far has He reraoted oar trunsgrcs
ions from us."
Ttie whole nesembly, as if moved by an
Irresistible impulse, arose, remained stand
ing for a Eecond or two, then sank back
Into their ceau.
A professor of elocution was there. A
friend who observed him and knew that
lie bad come to criticise, asked him when
the service was over: "Well, what do you
think of the bishop's elocution?"
"Elocution?" said lie. "'That man doesn't
want elocution; he's got tLc Holy Ghost."

One of the Gayton Furniture Company's
teams of heavy draught horses performed
a feat of hurdle Jumping Monday noon,
says the Cleveland Plain Dealer, that it
would be difficult to imagine possible
even by one of the Cleveland troop's crack
"fence takers." Chris Sampp, one of
the drivers of (he firm, had just drUeulnto
the alley on the north side of thecompany's
Seneca street establishment, and, having
umbridled the horses, had supplied them
with their noonday's ration of oats, and
was turning backward over the teat lo
reach his own luncheon when his action
startled the horses and they started with
a plunge toward Seneca street.
Sampp grabbed for the reins, but, as the
horses were unbridled, he was powerless
to control them, and leaped out of thcrcar
end of the van to attempt to head them off.
ri-'nging across Seneca street the horses
soon found themselves face to face with
the five foot picket fence on the north side
of the courthouse. Incredible as it seems,
the horses, weighted down with the big
wagon, made one desperate plunge to
gether aud leaped the fence with a bound
Of course the fence prevented the further
progre'.s of the wagon, and the team stopped
with lhe van on one side of the railing and
they on the other. People rushed out of the
factories aud adjoining restaurants, ex
pecting to find the horses killed. They
had freed themselves, however, from the
Waijon and were standing docilely within
the inclosure when Sampp arrived, and,
after examining them for injuries, took
them away. One of the horses, a brown,

leg and limped with considerable effort.
The gray escaped with a slight abrasion

What it does mean Is that curtain ralers

The following incident occurred at a

standing beside some luggage waiting for

"Sir, that lavage is over weight."
"Who says It is?" said the man, who
"Well, I think it K" .ras wered the porter.
"but we will weigli it."
During the conversation a crowd had col

up and asked what was the matter. The
man stammered out:
"F lrst he bays it is over-weight; thej
he sajs he th inks It is over-weight, and
tli en he says he will weigh it."
The porters then took hold of the luggage
and carried It to the oL'.e and weighed it.
"It is over-weight, and you have got 50
cents to pay," said porter No. 1.
"8h an'tpayit," theruansald.
'Well, If jou won'tpaylt, we shall fetch

He rabbed the ball Just as the runner was

Springfield, Mass., Sept. 13. The great

work was the must brilliant ever seen here,
and well paid the thousands who were on
hand to see it.
The features of tho day were the ree-ord
breaking attempts, and there were many
ot them. Fred J. Titus was paced by al
most the entire Class It field and succeeded
In riding twenty seven miles, 185 yards in
the hou r, lo werlng his own record of twenty
six miles, 1,489 jards.
Bald was another hero, ne proved him
self better than his competitors, but only
altera hard stmggle. Onefoot wasallthat
he could beat Cabanne, who ran second hi
each of the open contests, and who rode-
unpaccd lu the mile handicap from scratch
The race ot the day was the two mile
professional handicap. In which nineteen
men started and in which Walter C.Sanger
rode one mile practically unpaced from
scratch, pulling Starbuck up. Starbuck
then pulled Sanger through the field, and
the big fellow worked through the bunch
and won from Crooks, of Buffalo, In a
hard race down the stretch in 4.24 4 5, tho
world's record for handicap riding.
The mile professional race -was also won
by Sanger .who ran fle lengths away from
Tyler in the stretch, finishing in 2.05.
The oien race for the world's five-mile
record was a victory for Starbuck, the
professional, who was paced by quad and
Starbuck also lowered tbc three-mile
record to 0.05 4-5; the four mile to
6.08 3 5, and his time for the flc ml leaver
ages near two minutes and two seconds to
the mile, or 10:11 1-5, a wonderful per
formance, as 11 was done from a standing
start, the rlrst mile in 2.05 4 5 and second
. John Gardiner, of Syracuse, took forty
six seconds from the five mile paced class
A record, doiug his ride in 11-03 2-0.
Gardiner fell Just after crossing the tape,
striking against the fence He was car
ried from the track bleeding profusely,
but consclousand happy.
Fred Longhead, the Canadian champion,
performed the feat of riding two miles un
paced from a standing start faster than it
has ever been ridden from a flying start,
his lime being 4-50, and the former filing
start record 4 51 1-5 and standing start
