It Crop Oat Oeraoloaally Amone Elders
of the Kirk.
Tb elderof the kirk, lik most of us.
can blunder occasionally. The paster of
a small villaiie on the borders had gona
tit a few days to visit seme relatives,
when an old lady was suddenly stricken
down and not expected to live inor9
than a few hours. The elder was hastily
summoned to attend : but, having been
lately elected to tho post, which he had
accepted in crdr to satisfy the vanity
of his wifo. he did not feel able to face
the tryir.iy ordeal. His wife entreated
him to do his doty, ad whispering a
few lines of Scripture into his ears sent
him eff on his errand
An hour later his wife beheld hira
stopping homeward as brisk as a March
hare the inquired how he had come on.
'Oh, fine, woman, fine!" was the re
ply. "She was deid when I got there!"
A short t:mD aao, when tliscstaciisa-
meut was iu everybody's mouth, an old
lady created qaite a sensation in a
church not for from Annan. Having
been from home a considerable time,
she was unaware that the election of
elders had tukea place. She attended
tflrvices tho following Sunday, when the
minister, commenting on tho result, re
marked that iu D;;vid Richardson the
church had a new pillar nf strength, to
which she retorted: "What! David
Richardson a pillar i JCae wonder the

had tho misfortune to havo a wooden

On one occasion the minister met
Donald coming from Dumfries Rord fair
iu rather a muddied state. "David!
Davi l! Do I reo yonr double?"
'Eh, guidsakes. minister!" exclaimed
the elder. "Oiuidsakes, are ye feu tae?"
A r.iiuister, feeling indisposed on on?
occasion, did not put in au appearance,
and the elder, apologizing for his ab
sence, Rave it oat that "his reverence
wa3 unco bad in the rooniattic" (for so
l:o pronounced th'j word rheumatism)
"and couldn't get out."
On hearing this startling intelligence
an old lady who. happened to to pres

Toward tho end of April the sardine
fishermen along tho coast of Brittany
begin to watch for tho bubbling of the
sardines on tho surface of the sea. For
they know that vast shoals of the little

When the net iH extended, the water
is "baited" bv throwing balls of

and sinks the sardines rise and remaia

One of the most remarkable things
about the heart is the amount of work
it does. Consist ring tho organ a

contemporary, "if the whole f :rce es
pendei by the heart in 4 henrs were

"Steamship passengers frequently re

captain yesterday, "and whilo the
pranks, as a rule, are perfectly harmless
they sometimes have a boomerang effect.
Three years ago we were crossing the

speedy trip, as a rival liner had the
week brtoro lowered the record hold by
