CARROLL CAUSES SENSATIO
The Colored Preacher Accuses h:
Brethren of the Negro Baptist
Ch!zr:h -f Mis:, -:duet
The Rev. R. Carroll. of Columb
caused a breeze in the negro Bapt
State convention in Union last we
by accusing some of the minister
appropriating the convention mon
to their individual use and collectii
money for foreign mission work ar
distributing it among themselves
"I was at a meeting when a cc
lection was lifted for Africa and e
ery cent of the money was divided
mong the preachers present.' sa
the Rev. Carroll., "and this is wh
they called Africa."
The Rev. G. W. Railford, i a res
mution which was unanimously adop
ed, said that Dr. Carroll had made a
unwarranted attack upon the ministi
without any provocation or found;
tion, and resolved that the Rev. Ca
roll was wrotig in making the sweel
ing charges against the ministry, an
tiat a committee be appointed to an;
"I am prepared to prove all that
have said." shouted the Rev. Mr. Cai
rol. "I was inspired by God to wri1
and say what I have said. I kno
you men. I am honest in dealin
w'th you. I use to drink whiskey i
my life, but I have never drunk wit
any of you. I use to buy my whiske:
go home, drink it, get drunk and g
to bed, but now I do not use it at all.
At this point questions of privileg(
points of order were voiced , an
many others were on the floor throw
ing the convention in a circus-like up
roar. During the excitement some c
the brethren were accused of handlin
the truth carelessly. Peace was re
stored and the resolutions adopte<
and the Rev. Carroll announced tha
he was in position to use the Baptist
if he so desired.
Caesar and His Wife.
There are husbands who, amon
their male companions, like to hav
it supposed that they are just a littl(
tyrannical at home. One such man
who had two or three friends at hi
house one evening, remarked, as the
were chatting together comfortabI
at'a rather late hour:
"Yes, I do what I like at home. M3
wife, she has to bend to my will,l
can tell you. In my house I'm a reg
ular Julius Caesar!"
His wife came into the room ir
time to hear the last sentence. Th<
tyrant of his household looked a lit
tie uneasy, but his wife neithei
frowned, nor apparently paid any at
tention to the remark. But after a
moment she remarked very positive
"Gentlemen, it is late, and Julius
Caesar has g.>t to go to bed!"
Where- -the husband arose,
stammer.. his excuses and retired,
leaving his guests to find their way
out as best they could.
It was in another household that
the husband once remarked to his
wife: "You know, my dear, that I
am the head of the house!".
"You may be the head as much as
you like," said the wife, "but I'm the
"The neck? 0 yes, you may be
the neck if you want to, my dear."
"Very well. It's the neck that turns
the head whichever way it pleases,
Patrick Maginis went to confr ssion,
and among many other sins, coafess
ed to the good father that he had stol
en Mrs. Mulcahy's pig, the loss of
which had been a great blow to the
poor woman. T'he priest looked at Pat
very severely and said:
"Stole Mrs. Mulcahy's pig, did ye?
That's very bad, Patrick-very bad.
Don't you know. Pat, that to steal a
pig is a heinous sin, and to steal Mrs.
Mulcahy's pig is worse? What will
ye say in the day of judgment when
Mrs. Mulcahy confronts *ye 'before
the Lord an' charges ye with stealin'
her pig--what'll ye say?"
Pat looked rather glum at this on
slaught, but at this point he picked
up and said:
"Sure, yer riverince, Mrs. Mulachy
won't be there?"
"Indade; an' why not, Pat Margin
is? Mrs. Mulcahy will be there and
the pig'll be there, an' when yer ask
ed why ye stole the widdy's pig,

Won't Move on Friday.
" "Friday is a kind of holiday in our
d business." said the professional mov
- er. "There is a big lot of superstition
in this town. and, except in cases of
I actual necessity, it is hard to get any
body to move on Friday. If a few
e families that intend to change quar
v ters soon could only be induced to put
g aside their foolish prejudice against
n this sixth day of the week they could
h be set up in their new home with half
r, the trouble and inconvenience they
[ will experience on any other day. I
have explained that to many prospec
, tive customers, but the chances are
a that most of them will vote to join
- the rush- rather than tempt bad luck
- by moving on Friday.
f "Most of onr movers dislike Friday
as much as the customers. Whatever
- jobs are assigned to them they at
, tend to, of course, but every last
t man in our employ wiU be glad if not
s a single order was booked for Friday.
They claim that every accident to
the furniture through loss or break
age, occurs on a Friday, so, for their
own sake, they uphold the customers
) in their fight against Friday."
Mr. Hyde's Luxurious Stables.
James H. Hyde, the storm-center of
the Equitable fight, is reputed to have
the most splendid stables in America.
There is a special room devoted to
the harness, spotless and shining as
table silver. In a case are curb, bits,
bells, stirrups and whips. There are
carved wooden cases, containing a
veritable museum of old stirrups, nos
tillion whips and hunting horns, and
a great hall containing not less than
The stables' are ruled over by Fran
cois Guillot, a true Parisian, who serv
ed W. K. Vanderbilt for ten years. A
lady visitor to the stables admired
one of the horses extravagantly, and
Guillot turned to her and said sim'ply
and earnestly: "You will only have
to tell Mr. Hyde the horse pleases

a room full of telephones and electric
bells, furnished with; fine carpets, old
mahogany furniture, sporting photo

and hunting horns. Next to his of

and his guests to come wvhen the

the stables more freely and gaily than

festive supper that we 'had there with

hunting horns, while everybody danc
