that il win not hi:i duty to hunt up

Sergoaiit-nl-Ariiis. This ofticer was
Nat ' Thompson id Hanover. Ho de
fended himself by alleging that thn pre

that, the Sergeant ought to havo a

suit was rather rusty. TJm Sergeant
consented Ui lend him tho proper gar

remarked on the route that tho conven
tion had been without any worship for
a week, and it was expected that tho

morning. ,Mr. Southiiir gavel tapped

Sergeant quickly slipped from tho hall,

Ho sH-nt an hour at tho restaurant, aud
slowly returning to tho Capitol and
Jimling tho parson in full swing, ho
went down to another restaurant, dined
with a friend, sauntered back about 2
o'clock, and still had a quarter of an
hour to sun himself on the Capitol blepK
before the awelling touns of tho parson
began to taper to tho lower kev of the
conclusion, llo unbolted tho ib-ors as
tho prayer ended. It bad lasted three
hours and a quar'er. Tho convention
was far from a devotional frame of
