Behavior in Church.
We may classify the petty incivilities of
church life thus:
1. Smells. Violent perfumes, especial
ly those containing musk, are disagreeable
to most persons, and to some positively
distressing. There is no smell so univer
sally pleasing as no smeU. Never scent
go yourself when going into a crowded assem-
bly. I he same is true oi tne residuary
niell of tobacco which hangs about the
garments and afflicts the breath of those
who habitually suioe. But tobacco almost
or invariably makes men self-indulgent and
regardless of others' convenience. More
brutal yet are they who go to church reek
to ing. like a Dutchman's soup, with the
a smell of onions. There are scores of peo.'
be pie who have lost all profit of a Sunday ssr
thinkin' vice by the sickening smells which sur-
I rounded them.
old 2. Socsns. Whispering in church dur-
ing the service is sn uflront lo politeness,
bnt Much of tbe coughing which goes on iu
church arises from the poisonous gases and
to personal tfliuvia which exist in unventil-
as lated churches. Hut the power of the will
over the muscles which do the coughing is
out very great A heedless person will cough
twice as much as is ueedlul will cough ot
the worst time possible, will cough plump
out upon the Becks of those befuie him, in-
stead of embalming the sound in bis hand-
kerchief as, with a little skill and polite-
ness, he might easily do. We would not
forbid men who cannot sing to "makes
joyful noise" but it should be ft softly
noise. In all cases when it is ft man's duty
full to sleep iu church, it is his duty also to
snore with the soft pedal down.
3. Sight. Every one likes to see the
cannot be done through your
you cannot help being betore
ulcsa you ore on tho bock seat
no Rut, with a little thought, you may very
much help those behind yon. Any conduct
on which shall divert the attention of others
no from tbe service, such as ostentatious play
ing with a watch or opening and shutting
it, reading books or papers, looking about
iuquisitively, is impolite.
Many churches have the Ten Command
ments set up upon the wall, in sight of the
whole congregation, although not one
the sins reprobated is likely to be commit
ted in church time. Would it not be will
to hove another tablet, enumerating the
sins which men are prone to commit
