Negro Bridegroom Asked Parson Whe
Performed Ceremony to Walt
Until the Bride Got a Job.
The pastor of a large Baptist church
ln>ft neighboring city, whose congrega
tion included many negroes, received
recently a call from a young colored
man and woman on matrimony bent.
The. man had been a shiftless person
and the woman was known us Indus
trious. ? The preacher noticed that the
bridegroom was all spruced up and
concluded that the bride had made
a proper member of tiociety out of
him, so he went ahead with the cere
mony with a good deal of satisfaction.
He had it in mind not to accept a
fee from these lowly members of bis
flock, but the bridegroom, with a
beaming face, handed over the usual
small envelope and departed with his
Dinah before the preacher could pro
test. When the pastor opened the
envelope later he read this note:
"Dear Pastor: I am sorry I cannot
pay you a fee now for uniting me in
wedlock, but I spent all I had on wed
ding clothes. I will send you the
money Just ?s soon as Dinah gets to
The preacher got a fee later from a
very grateful Dinah, who seemed to
think it proper that she should pay,
and was overcome with surprise when
the fee was given back to her ais a

SPEAR GOOD ENOUGH FOR HIM
One Experience With White Man'?
Weapd'n Was Enough for.
When Mr. Montague, the English
traveler, was in Africa, he gave to a
native an old single-barreled gun, and
the fellow was delighted. He put Id
a sma!1 handful of powder, end about
a quarter of a newspaper on top ol
It. and finally ? ball, and then rammed
f.he whole charge down. Then he de
parted. Ita the evening he returned
with his face battered and swollen al
most beyond recognition. "What have
you been doing?" asked the^Engllsb
man/ In amazement. The native sat
3own on the ground and said, sorrow
rully: "A little after noon I found the
track of elands, and I followed It un
til 1 found them feeding. I crept uj
:o one of them. He was twenty yard!
?way. I rested the barrel of th'
gun on a stone, placed the butt
against my nose, directed the muzzlf
toward the eland, and pulled the trig
ger. I do not know what happened
for I was blind and deaf for some
time, but when I came to I found my
self lying at the bottom of the gully
The gun was beside me, my face tpip
as you now see It, and the elands ban
gone away. Son of a white roan. H
was very kind of you to give me s
gun, but it Is too good a gun for me?
too strong, too powerful. It need?
