etrtb, something greater than man;
and through this section an Atlanta
newspaper man of religious turn of
mind (there is on'y one in Atlanta,
and he isn't there now), had occasion
to travel. One Snnday he attended a
country Sunday school and was called
on to sprair, and t3 intense the schol
ars, he asked them questions between
his remarks ' Whi mad the g eat
big world?" he a;ked, nndor tiie sub
ject "Creation." "Q d," answered the
whole school. "And who made the
pretty ttars and the great yellow
moon to shine by night, and the
beautiful silver son to thine
by . day?" "God," said all
the children again. "Correct," he
said, pleasantly. "And now, children,
who made God?" This was a poser,
and the school was silent for a full
minute, when a small band belonging
to the postmaster's small boy went up.
"Ah, my boy," smiled the ctechiser,
"you can answer, can ycu? Well,
now, tell us who mads God?" "Joe
Brown did," piped the boy. and all
the scholars in the school looked
ashamed of themselves for being so
ignorant, and evt-n the teacher seemed
provoked that the postmaster's boy
