Christianity and Popnlnr Amusements.
Rev. Washington Gladden, In the Cen
tury for January, indicates the attitude of
the Church toward recreative diversion in
drawing the line between the clean and
the unclean, only Insisting upon a few gen
eral principles, such as these:
1. Amusement is not an end but a
means a means of refreshing the mind
and replenishing the strength of the body;
when i I. beg ins to be the principal thing
for wbith'one lives, or when, in pursuing
it, the menial powers are enfeebled and the
bodily health impaired, it falls under just

which ought to be sacred to sleep, are,

work which we are bound to do are per
nlcjooti, just to the extent to which they
cuuse us to be neglectful or unfaithful.
4. ; Amusements that rouse or stimulate
morbid appetites or unlawful passions, or
that Cause us to be restless or discontented,
arc always to be avoided.
5. Any indulgence in amusements
which lias a tendency to weaken our re
spect for the great Interests of charasler, or
to loosen our hold upon the eternal verities
of the spiritual realm, Is, so far forth, a
damage to us.

In discussing the drama be soys: "It Is
not only nor chiefly by the questionable
morality ot the plays that the injury Is
done; it is by their flippancy, their sllll
nesa, tbelr sensationalism, their unreality.
Their effect upon the intellect is like that
produced by reading the most trashy nov
els, only more debilitating. The effect of
amusements as a wlmlo Uxm miuds mor

usually conducted, salutary; their product

Anecdote of Senator Sumner.
Senator Sumner took quite an interest
in me, and had an especial fondness for
catching me by the ears. Often have I
attempted lo pass the Senator, while he
was walking to and fro on the floor of the
Senut'j, only to have both my ears seized
good-naturedly, and to be asked some
kindly question. I shall always remember
one of these adventures for it was an ad
venture! He had sent me on an errand.
Having returned, reported to him the an
swer, and received his deep voiced lhanks,
I si ai ted to move away, but he had caught
me and continued his slow march I in

and I a very small boy in comparison, I
hod to walk on liptoe to ease the pain, aud
even then it seemed as if my ear would
come off my head. Tbe worst of It was
that he at once became so lost in deep
thought that ho forgot he hud hold or me
and mechanically paced ui and down.
with bis long strides, while I danced a
mild war-dauce tor some minutes, it
seemed to me hours,-to the Intense amuse
meut of all who observed it. The more I
struggled, ihe more did I increase the
agony, but I at lust managed to wriggle
away horn his grasp. The sudden empti
ness of his hand caused him to realize the
state of affairs, aud ho begged my pardon
so energetically, and tne spectators smiled
so audibly, that the proceedings of the
Senate were interrupted and Mr. Colfax
actually bad lo tap with bis gavel to re
store order I
But il was, after all, an honor to be .no
ticed, even iu that fashion, by so destln
guisbed a msu as Senator Sumner. He
had the widest leputalion of rftry of Ihe
senators, und the first question most of the
visitors to the Senate would ask, was:

"Among the Law-makers," by Edmund
Alton, in St. Nicholas for February.
Your correspondent called on Mrs. file-
pben Knspp, ihe other day, one of the
oldest settlers ot Penfleld. I found her at
the house of her son, Win. Knapp, happy
and in good health for one of her age, now
in hci eighty-first year. It was not difficult
to draw her out respecting old times, old
scenes and old neighbors of fifty years ago.
"You see," she siid, "I cooked the first
meal of victuals for a Methodist preacher
in Penfleld; 1 can't remember tho exact
day, but it was in March, 1820. Yon see,
it will be fifty-nine years next March. It
was ono of those most disagreeable, days
In spring raining, and the mud bottom
less. "Just about dusk a horseman rodo up to
tho log house lu which we were living,
that was on the faint where Mr. Baldwin
now lives, and asked my husband if he
could get supper. Horse and rider looked
weary a: well as terribly muddy. Mr.
Knapp told lilm to go In und he would at
tend to the horse. I soon learned lhat he
wus a circuit rider, all the way from
Westflcld that day, without a mouthful lo
eat lor either man or beast, and, of course,
dreadful hungry. Mr. Field, Rev. Ellsha
Field, tor lhat was his name, remained a
little while after supper to rest, and my
husband took a lantern and piloted him
through the woods to Mr. Merwln's, where
he had an apointment to preach that ev.
enlng. Mr. Merwln was a Congregation
"I stipposo Mrs. Mcrwin cooked the
second meal for him, as ho remained with
iheru over night. Well, really, it don't
seem so long ago; how lime does fly; and
great changes have taken place since (lieu ;
but II seems only yesterday when the trav
eler came, and when the first moal was
cooked for the first Methodist mluisier."
1 looked ut the old lady, smart and vig
orous, und could scarcely realize that her
murrleil life spanned more than half a
century. It was Mary who entertained
our Savior. "Given lo hospitality" is a
Christ Inn grace. When the bespattered
traveler came to the log house in woods,
he louud an open door and an open heart
and ark open hand ready to serve and
bestow upon ono of the pioneer preachers
of Penfleld ; and this should be told of her
when our children's children tell of the
first settlers in our town. X. X.
