Aunt Jerusha's Vncatlon.
" tlorao again, aro you, Auntie V Had a
good timo ? WVre roal glad to see you.
Now your vacation is over you muat tell
us all about it."
This was Judge Pdrker's greefing as he
met Aunt Jerusha at Parson Ilopeful's
tho night after her return from a sum
Wa'al, I guess I'm as glad to git home
aa you cau be to see me. I tbought I was
putty middlin' tired 'fore I statted, but
now I'm e'enarooat tuokered out. Trav-
elin an' visitm', 'n goln' to meetin', 'n i
takin' oare o' babies is most as hard'a
" Travelingis hard work. Ilutthen you 1
didn't have to go very far V" said tho
" No. not 80 very ; 'bout fifteon hundred
milpfl, I guess, in all."
"Why, where have you been ? I thought
you were vMting Kato and that grandson
o yours in Mayintown."
'"Yes, yes. But I went to Andover
first. an' Oberlin', an' New York 'fore I
got 'round to Mayintown."
" Andover 7 Ah 1 Tell us about it."
" Yo see Parson Hopoful was agoin' to
'tend the anniversaries 'n the 'lumni geth
erin', an' ho asked me if I didn't want to
go too. I said yes, kinder in fun ; but ho
insisted 'pn my goin'. Then when I see
sister Catherine Mrs. Whittlesey, you
know she said they'd got a new departur',
or suthin' o' that kind, in Andover, 'n as
I'd never seen ont, I was determined I'd
go. An' right 'pon that cousin Ann, who
visited to our house last suniraer, wrote
me to come an spend a fortnight with
her in June. Sho said they was expectin'
a big racket ' to the 'lumni meetin', so
" "Well, did you see the new departure,
or the big racket V"
"I guess so. We had lols o' fun, n' I
should guess that was somethin' new in a
feeolocical seminary. .bverybody was
happy 'xcept twoor three who was afeard
that Coneregationalists was a-gittin' too
lib'ral. Now, as for me. I don't caro how
lib'ral a man ip, ef he's only orthodox.
Twas jest splendid, the 'naugural speeches J
"o' the new perfessors I They argued fer '
a biblical an' reasonable au' sound feeol
ogy just what I believe ; an' everybody
liked it. Then the graduatin' exercises.
They was all right, an' I said to myself,
thinks I, tho seminary that graduatessich
men can't be fur out the way. But when
the 'lumni met, a doclor from St. Louis,
a big man with a heart's big as an ox, I
should think, told 'em what kind o' preach
in' the times was a demandin'; but he
was 'fraid some folks wasn't gittin' 'nuff
of it. Then a Boston minister told how
his feelin's kep' a laceratin' of him nights
'cause there was suthiu' wrong at Ando
ver; an' he hoped the 'lnmni could say
somethin' comfortin' or pass a resolution
or declaration to show that they didn't
approve o' any departure from what Mr.
Calvin thought onght to go into the West
minster Confession. That ain't jest what
he said ; but he seemed to be hittin' that
way. Anyway his feelin's didn't seem to
'gree with him, when he went to bed.
Cousin Ann, she whispered to me : 1 Now
for the racket I' I looked 'round, an' purty
soon Mr. Cook came down the side aisle
and sot down with the Boston minister.
He showed him some resolutions, an' he
nodded his head. Then some spoke on
the other Bide as though Andover was all
right. One said the visitors was gentle
men of bonor, and they would keep the
seminary straight ; another thought it
unnecessary to turn the meetin' into a
heresy hunt. Then Mr. Cook looked at
tho Boston minister, an' with his pencil
crossed out one o' the resolutions. Then
a Bible man they called Butler, said some
funny thinga ; but he thought the semin
ary was all right, an everybody clapped
their hands aud looked happy. But Mr.
Cook crossed out some more resolutions.
I guess ho was surprised come to find tho
seminary nearer right than he thought.
When he got up to speak, instead of read
ing his resolutions, he preiuded his re
marks with prayer.
Then he said some-
n n L t
thing about a legal aspect of some ques'
tion. Cousin Ann said ho meant that
Professor Smyth didn't agree with him,
an' be wanted tho supreme court to say
he was a heretic. The 'lumni didn't seem
to 'gree with him ; for they immediately
elected the professor chairmanof tho com-
mitteo of arrangcments for the next
meetin'. Cousin Ann whispered some
thing that sounded like ' Beat at his own
qamt.' An' she guessod Mr. Cook, Dr.
Dexter, and Professor Park would feel a
little mite disappointed at tho way their
racket turned out. They didn't aeem to
be so iubilant as tho rest at the 'lumni
dinuer. But they promised to stand by
and befriond the now professors. An'
when the president of tho faculty, whom
they wanted to crowd out, said ho had
just renewed his subscription to tho
Creed, the applauso was just tremendous.
Tho 'lumni went homo in hiRh glee j an'
one on 'em couldn't contain himself. For
we found in tho depot buildin' some
verses on a pieco o' paper, signed Alum
nus." " Let us see them," repliod the judge.
" You must let us see them."
" They ain't rauch poetry in 'em as I
can see ; but they was a relief, perhaps,
to the writflr. Ihey was headed :
'"Tho Heresy-Huut of Our Threo

" Well, Auntie, you aro not sorry you
went to Andover 7" said Tarson Hopeful.
" Oh, I wouldn'fc a missed it for any
thing. I shouldn't a known anythlng
about it just from tho newspaper reports.
They ean tell what is said, but they can't
give tho tones or oxpress the alarms
whieh voti t?et from the voice. They
oan't fu'ily represent the joy of victory, or
the pathos of a defeat, so as to make it
real. The impression is so much more
than what can bo told in words I"
" Well, about the new theology 7"
quened the judge.
" I ain't afraid o' that. I liko it."
" I thoucht vou would believe in tho
new theoloirv if you could only go and
hear some of it."
" Well. really, 'twasn't new at all : it's
iust what I've always belleved, onlv it
was better expressed than I've often
heard it. It. was iust what they've been
teaching at Oberlin, areasonable, biblical
and progressivo theology. That'a one
thintr I wanted to co to Oberlin for. Mr.
Cook said Andover had rivals, and inti
mated that they were moro orthodox at
" So vou went 7" asked tho iudge. "And
how did you find them ?"
" Just like Andover, with thoir f aces
toward the rising sun. They didn't seem
a bit inclined to hug the corpse of what
used to be considered orthodoxy. iney
never professed anv ereat admiration for
the Westminster Oonfession, and they
don't seera to have fallen from grace
toward it. There never was an institu
tion more hospitablo to new views or new
ideas, nor more loyal to truth. God's
Wordis their standard. At theirjubilee
Oberlin was iust like a field ot white clo
ver full of honev-bees, all lifo and en
thusiasm. All seemed to be hunting for
honov. and not for heresy. 'Iwas won
derful how earnest, hearty, free and joy-
ful thev all were.'
" You like both Andover and Oberlin
so well you will hardly know where to
send your grandson to study theology 7"
suggested the iudge,
"I ain't troubled 'bout that. Katie
thinks she will train him herself, so he'll
be a great theologian before he's old
enoutrh to go to either."
" Well, that will solve the problem very
happily. IIo won't have to go to any
seminary until he goes to be a professor,
iet's-see; how old is he now t " asked th
"Nearly three montbs. He was born
the fifteenth of April," said Aunt Je
rusha. " He's verv forward for his age."
'Oh, doubtless," said the iudge. " Has
ho begun to read Hebrew 7 I suppose
he'll perfpct himself in that before he be
"Certainly; Kichard's teaching him
the alphabet and lecturing him on origi
nai sin. '
"Good studies for an infantl I sup
pose they have a name lor him t "
" To be sure. It was foreordained that
he should be called Charley Hodge, unless
hed been a girl. It is throuph him that
Katie expecls to revise Hodge's theology,
" Well, she'll do it ; and he'll have to go
to Princeton. And when you get that
seminary ranged alongside of Andover
and Uberlin, you may count that the prel
ude to the Millenium," said the Judge.
" lou may think that's a work of tim
perhaps a lonrr time: but it's cot
come. An' if Charley Hodge don't Hvo

Andover and Princeton cannot be much
further apart now than were Andover an
Oberlin forty years ago. It ought not to

Aunt Jerusha bowed herself out and
left the Judge and the Parson thinking
that her vacations bad not diminished her
faith, her hope or her charity.

Wlio will Do So for UsJ
We count it a remarkable fact that tho
newspapers of the same week should have
contained tho pleasing announcement of
a lnovement in two sister denominations
toward a much-needed labor of love and
justice. It is stated that the late Dr.
George Nugent of Philadclphia has left
nearly his entire esta'e. likely to be worth
from 3300,000 to 8100,000. to found a
home for aged and disabled Baptist min
isters and their dependent families. And
from another sourco it is announced that
Dr. Alexander M. Bruen of New York has
just deeded to the Presbyterian Board of
Ilelief for Disabled Ministers an estato
upon an eminence overlooking Perth Am-
boy, N. J., which
comDnses a spacions
. mausion of some eighty rooms, with somo
I j e , "i , ii.
do.en acres of Jand; and which It is
hoped and expected may be so managed
as to be the refuge, solace, and support of
maoy Presbyterian ministers who have
worn themselves out in the service of the
church and its Lord. There is a peculiar
charra in such a charity as this. Few
faithful ministers in parochial service re
ceive much benefit from inherited prop.
orty, and fewer still are able to lay aside
from their apt-to-be-meagre support what
shall amount to rauch as a resource in the
day when infirmity or old age forbids
further earning, and throws them back
upon what they may have been able to
j savo duriug thoir
active years. it is
and eraceful use of
surely a most kind
wealth to employ it in alleviatintr the
needs and aBsuaging the sorrows of worn
out veterans in the Master's service. And
the fact that somo such refuge oifers itself
to the deserving must often give strength
to tho weak in tho day of temptation.
Who will do for the Congregational min
istry what these good and thoughtful men
havo done for our Baptist aud Presbyte
rian brethren 7 Surely there must be rich
men among us whose ears are sensitivo to
our Savior's saying, "Inasmuch as ye
have douo it unto the least of these my
brethren, ye havo done it unto me."
Notiiino does bo e'jtablish the mind
amid the railings and turbulenoo of pres
ent things, as both a look above them and
a look beyond then? above them, to tho
steady and good hand by which they are
rulod ; and beyonu them, to tho sweet anu
beautiful end to which by that hand they
will be brought.- -Jeremy Taylor.

How Sho Lnst Her Husbainl.
Mrs. Brvan had a widowod mother, who
leaned on her in tho weariness of age, and
to whom she mmistered with an unweary-
mg devotion. She had little ones, whose
lives wero dearer to her than was her own
life, and whose lnerry voices and loving
acts kept her soul and heart in health
And so Phe had tpn a nsppy " stay-ai'
home." But in 1870 Mr. Bryan protested
sho must go to tho cpntennial. After
three weeks' intensn enjoyment in that
minialure tour of the world they took
seats in the cars for home via New York
city. Seeing a friend, Mr. Bryan stppped
back a moment, but rnoments in 1'hiia-
delphia were of priceless value that rush
: i rr n . U i.nt n4 Un mitn
n-minutP pace. As it dashed into the
Jersey City depot tho people, who seemed
to have caught its contagion, rushPd lor
the calm ferrv-boats. And Mrs. Bryan
moved on with the crowd as a matter of
course. She saw two ferry-boats, and
asked of the one on which she stepped
" Is this the boat for New York 7 " " Yes,
Cortland street, New York." When the
boat touched the wharf she went into th
ferrv-house. and beincr at the end of her
tickets, sat down to wait for her husband,
The cool bref from off the water was
delightful after the rush and heat, and
Bitting back qnietly, she lived over the
days of the past three weeks as a con
nected whole, and the waitinghour passed
quickly. Then came the boat, but the
husband came not. " It is strange he
missed this train," she thought, "but he
will certainly be on the next," and went
back to her seat ; but somehow the breeze
was no longer refreshing, the minutes
were much longer than on the first hour,
memory would not revel amid the won
drous beauties of the world's exhibit, and
the sount of tho incoming boat was a
joy to her. But a dreary sense of loneli
ness came over her as that crowding
crowd passed on, and not one face of all
had she ever seen before. She went
slowly back to her sitting and waiting,
and ho of the ferry-house came and asked,
" What ye waiting for 7 " She told him.
" It's agin the rules to let folks wait here
more'n two boats." She knew her hus
band always stopped at the Astor house,
and to it she went, booked her name, said
her husband would be there soon, and
was shown her room. It was almost din
ner time, but she did not feel like eat
ing until her husband came. Evening
wore into night, but no husband arrived.
She threw herself upon the bed, wondered
" where he might be 7 Would he find
her? Would she be suspected at the
holel 7 Questioned 7 What could she
do 7 " She could not stay ; she could
not go without money, and money was
just what Bhe had not. Oh for one of
thoso X bills that lined his pocket-book I
but to be penniless' and all alone, all
alone in New York city 1 Then came the
sweet, soothing, restful thought that we
are never alone. One never loses sight of
us, though we. blind mortals, often lose
sight of him, and rising, she prayed, went
to 'bed, nnd in his arms of love slept
calmly. In the morning ahe telegraphed
a friend of her husband, who lived in
Brooklyn, and went to breakfast. But
Mr. Bryan has not talked to his friend
all this time. Indeed, he took the very
next train, and on reaching Jersey City
depot looked for his wife, whom he
was sure must bo waiting for him. Not
finding her, bo took tho boat for Des
brosses street. On reaching the ferry
house, he looked for her and asked for
her. He knew he had intended to lako
her to the Fifth Avenue hotel, and
thought he had told her so, and that she
had gone there, and there he soon was
and there she was not. He sat dow n in
blank surprise. From hotel to hotel he
went looking over arrivals and made in
qulries, but could find no trace of her.
Tired out, at a late hour he went to bed,
but not to sleep. His lone, penniless
wife, in the great bewildering city,
haunted him. " If she only had money 1"
ho often exclaimed. " I will see sho has
a full purse in a safe place hereafter," be
said, and there came the crushing sense
that now Bho needed it, aud now she
hadu't it I Whero could sho bo I At day
break he was again on his search. That
bunuay morning a happy gronp sat
around the breakfast tabie of a pleasant
home in Brooklyn. A quick ringing of
the bell, so unusual at tbat hour of the
morning in the city of churches, caused a
moment's expectant silence, and when a
telegram was handed General Ilice his
wife was hardly surprised to see a quick
pam tlush his laco. " Mr. ISryan is dead
" Dead 7" asked his wife. " Yes I Mrs.
Bryan telegraphs me : 'I have lost my
husband. Ploase come to me at the
Astor Ilouse.' His death must have been
very sudden ; ho looked tho iinpersona
tion of health on his way to tho Ceiiten
nial." " That Philadelphia water is niur

rapid atrides General Hice went to his
brolher's home, whero ho fouud what he

Noble Anno, with a quick womanlysym
pathy, though nearly a strauger to Mrs.

How tho ltoys Aro Kulncd.
In a lato nurobor of tho London Punch,
a prodigal son, who has gone to the bad,
is represented as saying to his father, in 1
in answer to a storn rebtiko : " Ah, u s au ,
very well for you to talk, fathor. It's
precious oasy to keep straight on nothing
a year, and you wero thrown ponnllpss on
tho world at fourtoen 1 I should liko to
have seon you in my circumstanees, aftr
a publio school and cnllego cducation, and
an aiiowance of 500 per annum ever
since I" It must bo admitted that the
young man's defenco was unanswerable
a father who had been guiltyof such lack
of wisdom in the training of his son had
no right to blame anybody but himself if
the son turned out badly. He had in fact
temptod his boy to dissipation, and then
chided him for yielding. This is a fair
exampie ot tho way in which scores ot
boys aro ruined yearly, especially in our
largo cities. Parenta sopply them liber-
Blly with monoy, permit them to spend
thoir timo as they ploase, and are horri
fled some day by the discovery that their
darling boy is a sot or a villain. Nothing
can be more disastrous for a boy than too
much spending money and too much
spare time to spend it in. Of course, we
au tninK tbat our boys are the best in the
world, that we have so carefully instilled
the principles of right living into their
minds that they will not fall victims to
the temptations that swallow up other
boys. And in this blind confidenco many
parents go on till sorae disgraceful or
criminal act opens their eyes to the real
state of the case. New York is full of
young men, the sons of rich fathers, who
themselves began life as poor boys, who
have nothing to do but to spend their
large allowauces in the way that will do
them tho most liarrn. Their days and
nights are passed in the companionship
of youths as empty-headed as themselves,
varied by association with men of doubt
ful reputation and women whose reputa
tion is not in the least doubtful. What
but misery, degradation and crime cau be
the ultimato result of such a life 7 If
fathers will sow the wind they must not
complain when they reap the whirlwind.
The daughter of modern civilization,
dressed at her utmost best, is a morsel of
exquisite and beautiful art and expense.
All the lands, all the climes, nnd all the
arts are laid under tribute to furnish her
forth. Her linen is from Belfast ; her I
robe is from Paris ; her laco is from Ven- 1
ice, or Spain, or France; her feathers are
from the remote regions of Southern Af
rica; her furs from the remote homo of
the iceberg and the aurora ; her fan from
Japan ; her diamonds from Brazil ; her
bracelets from California; her pearls
from Ceylon ; her cameos from Kome ;
sho has gems and trinkets from buried t
Pompeii, and others that graoed comely '
Egyptian forms that have been dust and
ashes now for forty ccnturies ; her watcb
is from Geneva; her card-case is fronn
Cbina; her hair is from from I don't
laow where her hair is from ; I never
could find out. That is, her other hair;
her public hair, her Sunday hair; I don't
mean the hair she goes to bed with. Why,
you ought to know the hair I mean ; it's
that thing which she calls a switch, and
which resembles a switch as much as it
does a brickbat or a gun, or any other
thing you correct people with. It's a
thing which sho twists and then coils
round and round her head, beehive fash
ion, and then tucks the end under the
the hive and harpoons it with a hairpiu.

He comes occasionally, just as tho judges
are about taking their noonday recess,
and, stationing himselt in the doorway of

Whether it be ritual or extempore, and ,
who may be the special objects of his

are alifce matters of mystery, inasmuch
as his utterances are so rapid and muilled
as to be totaliy unintelligible. liis act ot
devotion accomplished, he swiftly moves
toward another part of the court, thero
again to perform his self-imposed duty.
He is strictly impartial, concerning the
benefitsof his intercessory offering on every ,
room in the building,4iot omitting even '
the comptroller's oflice and the bureau for
the collection of arrears. What ideas he
may have respecting the necessity or value
of his services no one knows, for he speaks
to no one. Ho is convinced, no doubt,
that his presence and prayers are abso
lutely essential to the welfare, if not, in
deed, the existence of the building and its
inmates. Ono thing, at least, is certain.
If he does no good, he does no harm, and
