That Uarj Beiirhrr.
A young gentleman went to see tlie
j:;:ghfi r of a Presbyterian elder late
ly, who'-e h iis was near a mill dam.
!t being spring of the year, the water
made considerable of a roav 'as it tum
bled over the dam. The modest young
man tapped lightly at the door at first,
and received no answer, lie tapped
again still no answer. Again and
again he repeated his knock, but still
he was unheard. Mustering up some
courage, he proceeded to inflict some
severe thumpc ou the door, which,
brought the staid old gentleman out.
" I suppose," said the youngster,
who has by this time become slightly
savage from being compelled to wait
so long, " I supposo you could hear
my knocking fcr the dam roaring."
" The Jam roaring! What do you
mean, sir ? How dare you speak in
that way?" said the divine, somewhat
angered by hearing the young man
swear in his presence.
" I mean to Say that I suppose you
could not her my knocking on account
of the dam roaring."

to say that I presumed that I could not

last words. !
" Insult on insult !" shouted the ia

of ejecting him, but was restrained by
the voice cf his daughter exclaiming,
