You'll find pcrhnpB, that they'll turn out
the poorest of the lot.

Tlie Prettiest Thing I Ever Heard.
A Good elder, whose mind was al
most totally absorbed in making money
? * was reclaimed from the habit of sleeping
? in church as follows;
The preacher had tried many wayB to
get the attention of elder A., but every
f. .. effort seemed to be of no avail. He
would occupy a seat very close to the
pulpit, throw his head back on tho bench
and'take a nap as long as tho sermon.
1 Thi? cold indifference greatly annoyed
tho wakeful portion of the congregation
and more especially the preacher. Know
ing the older's great propensity for mon
ey, the preacher pinned a bright green
back dollar to tho bottom of his notoB,
and before advancing ia his discourse
he raised his no'es iu full view of his
now half asleep hearer, and soon got his
entire attention. During the sermon
tho preacher kept his uotes in his loft
band with tho bottom or dollar side
turned toward tho elder, who was now
all attention. The services ended, and
as usual some asked Brother A. how he
liked tho serman. Says he. 'It was tho
prettiest thing I ever (saw) heard.*?
