The Olgantlo Pee of a Brooklyn Clergy

U. Y. Morning Journal )
There 1 a young man in Brooklyn who
has earned the gratitude of the numerous
clergy of that city. He it not a Sunday
ecbool teacher nor a member of the Y. M,
C. A, but a gentleman well known to the
devotee of the turf. In fact, he is none
less than Judge Joseph Burke, of the
Brighton Beach Race-course. .
Recently one of Mr. Burke's most In-
tlmnte friends determined to launch upon
the soa of matrimoiy. He honored the
Judge with a request to aot as his best
man, wh ch Joseph immediately pronikjed
to do. The ceremony came off at a church
on the Hill with much erfaf. The manly
form of Mr. Burke added much to the ef
fect. Anil tfiirtft.hlnr nnaaiwi off a hfLT-

- At the conclusion of the ceremony the
grooai illpped a plethorlo pocketbook to
hit aide, laying:
'Pay themiuiiter, Joe."
The Judge gazed at the Rusalan leather
receptadle of wealth. It was new and
elegant, and upon thd flap wot stamped la
"An offering of lore."
With hit moat courtly bow th beet man
banded the clegymaa the pocketbook,
book hamla and rejoined the bridal pa ty.
Be noticed at the aubaequent fetUvltiet
that the groom was looking at a m anx
louily every few minutes, but thought
nothing of It at the time).
'He' nervout, poor fellow," he
soliloquised. "Funny a fellow cant get
married without getting nervous."
(Shortly before the time for the couple to
depart the new huaband approached him

"Hoi- much dliKyoU girt him you.
weren't miserly, old boy, ehf" and th
groom tried bard to amile.
"Certainly not." I gave him all yon

"Yon gave him all t" gasped the
groom, who bad turned as white aa his
"Of conn I did. Yon dont suppose I

"No, not that; but do yoa know bow

"Well, I'm sorry, old man, but yoa ain't
broke, are you?"
"I'm broke for eaah. II ore it it eleven
o'clock at night and I bavent got enough
money lu my clothe to pay the coachman.
We've got to catch the twlv o'clock train,
"Never mind the coachman, 111 pay him.
Have you got your ticket?" '
Th groom bad bit tickets, but be re
minded the philosophical and generoua
Judge that ba didn't care to start on a
journey without money. He reminded him
that a check would be valuelee away from
borne and among etran?er, and tore bit
hair and walled generally.
"Well, my boy, .the only thing yoa can
do it to put up at a hotel to-night and let
me caah a check for yoa to-morrow and
bring yon the money."
And to it wat that th flrtt day of the
honeymoon wat (pent in Jtrtey City, the
bride bjiug informed that that wat the
proper caper just now, and tbatatrlpto
Hoboken made it distinc tively "the thing."
At toon at the genial Judge appeared
with the boodle, however, it wa remarked
that th nw huaband had a wild dee ire to
get out of the place and never felt easy
until the train had crossed the meadows.
Hereafter Judge Burka will have ab

stakes, and it It rinngeront to broach the
subject In hit prtaenao.
