Infant Baptisms In Russia.
"I was fortunate enough," writes
Trumbull White, "to visit the Church
of St. David. in Tiflis, Russia, just in
time to attend a baptismal ceremony.
According to the rites of the Greek
church, as practiced in this ancient
Georgian temple, the youngster in
question, a fine boy 4 or 5 weeks old,
had to be Immersed three times in a
baptismal font filled with water, each
time to be completely covered, in ad

"The benevolent looking old priest
proved himself a man of kindly
thoughtfulness. While the familygroup
around the baby was getting him prop
erly unclad, for the ceremony requires
that the child shall be naked, the priest
surreptitiously dipped his finger Into
the font, and I saw by his face that it
was too cold. Then he stepped behind
a screen, where his samovar was
steaming, emptied the hot water into
a pitcher, and while the family still
kept busy over the baby he poured
enough to temper the pool that had
been provided for the shorn lamb. The
result was that the little fellow took
his plunges without a murmur and
thereby distinguished himself."-Chl

How to Get a Genial Dog.
A vagrant dog, particularly a cur
with seven or eight different strains of
common dog in him, is the best kind
of a dog to own. He Is always smi~ling
and wagging his tail at you, and his
appreciation of little favors Is only
equaled by his appetite. A fancy dog
with a blue ribbon around his neck is
always looking for an opportunity to
snap at children. If we kept a dog,
we would keep a yellow one, purchased
as a pup from a negro boy.-Atchison

"I was called one day to a certAjW

woman who was about to undergo a
slight surgical operation to remove a
morbid growth in the ear," said a phy

on my arrival, bad been married only a
few days before and was in the city

'Although quite handsome, she was no

had hoped, poor woman, to pass
through the ordeal without the fact of
her wearing such things being known

He Drank Alone.
In the early days of Ventura, Cal.,
Dr. Bard established such a reputation
for willingness to fight that few pre
sumed to provoke his anger. He was
once informed that the lawyer he had
engaged to represent him in a certain
case had sold out to the opposing side.
"PIl cut his heart out," said Bard when
the news came to him.
Shortly after that, walking with one
of his friends, Dr. Bard met the law
yer en the street. "Come in and have
a drink," said that worthy, and the
three men, entering the barroom, or
dered three glasses of whisky, which
were put before them.
"Drink," said Dr. Bard to the law

It Waan't the Bell.
The Lewiston (Me.) Journal tells a
story of a minister in a prayer meeting
who cut short "Uncle" Ira, a prosy old
deacon, by ringing a bell at the end of
five minutes. But after doIng so he
felt sorry, because he had apparently
hurt the feelings of an old father in
Israel. So he arose and went down to
"Uncle" Ira and put his hand on the
old man's shoulder.
"'Uncle' Ira," said he, "i'm sorry for
that. I ask your pardon and"
"Uncle" Ira looked up, the anger still
in his eyes.
"Why, ye don't think I set down on
account of that pesky little bell of
your'n, do ye?" he demanded.
"Why, I-I-well, I thought"- stam
mered the minister.

"The revenue cutters of the United

the coast, and it is a rare thing indeed

to call her down the shore somewhere,

The boneybird is a well known deni

It has the unique peculiarity that It
does not fear men and women, but
actually flies up to them, uttering a
plaintive low note and, flying about
their heads, tries to lead them on to
the nearest clump of rocks or kopje.
The bird knows full well that under a
certain rock lies a store of honey, con

honey being as much esteemed by
birds as by human beings, the clever
little fellow tries to induce a friendly

If it succeeds in its object and the
traveler on the veldt, attracted by the
bird's fiutterings to and fro between
himself and the rocks, finds the honey,
the bird changes its plaintive tone to
one of joy and pleasure, as much as to
say; "Thank you very much."
