Upon tlie Ki\'tgostiou of tin- Misses

FOUGHT IN A CHURCH.
Tin? Pastor Knocked the Sexton Over a
1'twr.
Rector Cliarlea J. Holt of St. Jaines'
Protostnnt^Kpiscopnl church, in Ford
ham, N. x\,bas two children, Audry,
1:1 years old. and Charles, ti yours old,
who, 11 is said, have been making a
playroom of the church edifice on days
wh< n I bore an- no services,
Sexton Heury Howarth, who, with
his wife, cleans the church, rcceutly
complained tu the rector that Iiis chil?
dren and their friends had littured the
j Sunday school room with peanut shells,
1 grape skins and othor refuse.
The clergyman, so the boxton de?
clare-, did uothing to stop the littering.
Recently the sexton uud his wife fonud
Miss Audrey and the little boy pluyiug
in the Suudoy school room and put thero,
out. The girl was indignant, maintain?
ing that she had tho right, as the niinis
tor's daughter, to play in tho Sunday
school room as much as she pleased.
After putting out the children the
sexton and his wife went up into tho
church and bc-frttti cleaning there. They
soon heard tt noise down stairs.
The sexton went down and found that
the girl had opened a window and
jumped iu. lie ordered her out and up?
braided her. To drown his voice she sat
Mown at the piauo und bunged as bard
us she could. This incensed tho sexton,
und he picked her up and carried her
out bodily.
She went cryiug to her father, saying
that tho sexton had strode her. The rec?
tor went into the church and asked the
sexton if ho hud struck Audry. The
sexton said :
" If she said 1 struck her, she lied."
Mr. Holt says he thought the sexton
said that he, the clergyman, lied. He
struck out, and the soxton tumbled over
1 the back of n pew. As the sextou got up
! and started for the clergyman Mrs.
Howarth appeared. She persuaded the
angry men not to light in church. Then
tho clergyman discharged the sexton.
Tho vestrymen had a secret meeting
, to investigate the trouble and decide
whether or uol the soxton should be re?
instated. They were unable to agree and
will meet again.?New York Suu.
Iloukrn In Demand In Washington.
"A few months ago there were a',
least 6,000 honses with 'for rent' signs
; on t.hr-ni in this city. Today it is safe to
i assume there is not one-sixth of tltut
number," said a renting agent. "Iu all
? my business career 1 have never known
, tho demand for houses to bo greater at
this season. Very few of tho inquiries,
however, come from residents of the
city, and most of the people who are
reining property this fall seem to bs
strangers wh 1 are coming hero to live.
The next congress is going to bring a
great many new people to Washington,
and they seem to be taking tinio by tho
forelock and securing their houses now
rather than to wait until later in tho
season to look for them. "?Washington
