Many siorion are told of nn olulit
iTtitli ffiilury Leicestershire parson,
Itr Jlor. Mr. Hiigoiiiorc of Cultlioru,
liatl n miuiln for collecting, sn.VH
no Loudon TIMIItn. When ho tiled tie
toft behind him an gowns and cassocks,
not) pairs of boot, 400 pulrs of ahoes,
bO wlga (not one of which he had over
worn) and 100 palm of breeches. In
iddltlon to thli extensive wardrobe lie
lad accnmtilated no wheelbarrows, 200
llckaxex, 200 apadex, 74 ladders, M
logs, SO wagon mi curls, 80 plow's
nue never ueu one or tlietn), IMH rnsors
Ind an enormous untnlcr of walking
Iflrks, for which n toy uiaii gladly of
Mr. ItaKcinore bad two servant, one
f each sex, both of whom lie locked In
thelr bedrooms every night, and It was
lirough this jireeautlonary measure
hat bo lost his life. As lie was walk
HK in his Kiirilcn very early one morn.
his dogs leaped 011 htm and threw
fm Into n pond. The servants heard
lelr muster's cries for help, lint as
hey were locked In they could not go
his assistance, and the reverend gen.
cmnn was drowned, his hoardings go
ig to his ne.it of kin, n Ixmlon porter.
It Is n good many years now since
e ltev. John Truenmu of Daveutry
'eparted this life, leaving behind blui
pe snug fortune of 50,000, the accu
mulation of a niggardly lifetime. Rome
rmnrtiablc stories arc told of Mr.
J'rucnian's miserly habits bow he
Would take turnips from his parish
ners' fields nnd then beg pieces of
ciicon to boll with ills purloined veg
nblcB nnd liow hu would Invite blin
lf as guest to the bouses of ids llock
turn nnd pull the worsted out of tin
2rnern of "'' ldaukels to darn Ills
iV more remarkable clerical inNe:'
was the ltev, Morgan .Jones, 1
rkshlre curate of n century or s
:o. During tbe whole of Mr. Jonc
rty tlireo years' curacy of Hlew'Miry.
Is said, a single coat and hat served
m. When ills coat showed too tml-
iDlo signs or wear lie would cut out n
ecc of Its tails nnd patch the torn or
yorn part with it until In process of
rno the talis vanished altogether, nnd
je quondam coat was converted Into
Jacket, with a patch for almost every
fty In the year. When his hat similar
showed the ravages of time he up
.oprlated the head covering of n scare
ow and used It for repairing the dam
;e. His one nnd only shirt underwent
c same patching and renovation, Its
lls following those of the coat, while
curato's stockings underwent so
iny processes of darnlug tflat not a
lstigc of tho original nud only pair
inained by the time be bad no further
"1e for them.
5 For the last twenty years of Ills life
r. Jones' Household expenses never
iceeded half a crown a week. He, In
irlabiy retired at sunset to save the
tit of cnndles, and In the coldest
father never allowed himself the lux
y of a fire except on Sundays, and
pn the fire was made from sticks
eked up in the roads and cburch
'rd. Ills menu was limited to bread
4 bacon and tea, and a half quartern
if lasted him a week. For little
Drt of half a century this old clergy
in lived on bis fees :ind saved his ta
me of 80 a year, while subscribing
ernlly to religious societies and glv
3 many a pound to his needy parish
fers. iVhat n thrifty parson, can do on a
Berly small Income was shown by n
) time curate of Thulkeid, In Cum
rlnud, Alexander Nniighley, whose
tire Incomo was 8 15s. n year, Mr.
ughley lived absolutely alone, slept
n bed of straw and cooked bis own
Jnty food, but he never failed to
sent a respectable appcuranco to the
rid, while not n word of complaint
Ir passed his lips.
i. very eccentric parson was the Itev.
hgton Freeman, an old time rector
Hilton, in Warwickshire, who left
J following strange instructions for
' funeral: "For four or live days
or my deccaso I would not bo ro
ved out of tho iplaco or bed I shall.
