' Tlio Wrong Boy.
A Sunday school teacher in a back
woods settlement had n now clasa of
young scholars, tho parents of which had
neglected to glvo them any instructions
whatever in their catechism. Coming to
tho first boy in tho class olio asked him
who mado him. Ho did not know. She
told liim God, and urged lilm to remem
ber it. Of tho next boy sho asked who
was tho oldest man. Ho did not know,
and tho teacher told him Methuselah. So
she went on down tho class, asking each
a question and giving them tho answer.
Whilo she was thus engaged the first boy
wont to tho bucket after somo water.
Tho teacher returned to tho head of ths
class, and not knowing that ono was ab
sent, sho asked tho firbt who mado him.
Without hesitation tho Iwy quickly ro-
fillod, "Mothuselahl" "No," exclaimed
ho teacher in astonislimcnt, "God made
you!" "No, ho didn't," persisted tho ur
chin with confidence; "tho boy God
mado is after water." Tho teacher gave

fie FoUows Ills Master.
I can tell a short story of a doc that
has come under my observation. The
dog wan owned by a physician. A lady
was Bick and tho doctor attended her un
til out of danger. Ho always let the
doer. Broino. co with him to the sick
room. Biomo would watch every mo
tion of his master. At last tho doctor's
visits wero dropped, but tho doK con
tinucd them dully, and would go to her
door and If he found it closed would
whlno to bo let in. Theso visits were
looked for by tho patient. Her nurse
would ret uso sometimes to let nun enter,
but ho would not go without seeing her.
Tho nurso would set a chair beside the
bed, and ho would sit theio just as lus
master had, and look at her and whine
ns if trying to sneak. Bromo was called
tho doctor's student. Animal World.
Speed In Telegraphing.
When tho first electric telegraph was
established tho speed of transmission was
from four to fivo words a minuto with
tho llvo nccdlo instruments; In 1840 the
average rato for now spaper messages was
seventeen words a minute; tho presont
ncco of tho electric telegraph between
London and Dublin, whoro tho Wheat
stono instrument is employed, is 408
words; and thus what was regarded an
miraculous sixty years ago lias multi
plied u hundred fold in half a century.
