Tho Education- Most Needed.
Make line speeches about educa

from Governor to constable, should
loam that their highest duty ls to

Unless theso lessons are learned

ing from the Scriptures the story of
Rebecca at tho well, as told in Gen
esis, 24th chapter.
As the late comer tripped up tho
aisle, the minister read:
"And behold, Rebecca came forth.'
Broad smiles played over the faces
of the worshippers, and blushes wore
seen to mount to tho face of Re
becca. But courageously she wont
on, quickening her step.
"And she made haste." continued
the clergyman, reading quito obliv

Snickers from the youngsters and
broad smiles from the grown-ups and
half^suppressod giggles from the
half-growns wore tho responso.
By that timo Miss Rebecca had
reached hor pow. She stumbled In
and sank down as if she hoped tho
cushions would swallow her.
"Lot the damsel abide with us,"
concluded the minister, closing his
book and ending tho reading, much
to the relief of Rebecca.
