FIGHT IN RING VERNACULAR.
The Bride Ventured Sazestioa Which
Caaght On The Preacher Didst Pally
3oeceed la Appearing Cneophleticated.
The tittle Ram'l King Tactics.
A preacher told this 6tory at a wed
ding trapper on the South Side the other
"I was riding along a country road
near Bloomington," he said, "when I
noticed a group of 6heep in a pasture.
There was a large open space in the
midst gf the flock, and at cither end of
the space stood a ram. In the center,
bnt standing a little at one side, was a
third ram. The two rams had evidently
had a falling ont about something, or
else they had come to settle in a friend
ly contest which was the better ram.
Ram No. 3 seemed to be acting as
jndn, umpire what do yon call it?
Referee? Yes, that's it, the third ram
was the referee. I don't know under
what rules the meeting took place. It
may have been Qtieensbcrry or Rosebery.
Yon sco I cm not up to these technical
"When all the preliminaries had been
arranged and both contestants had been
cautioned apparently that thero was to
bo no "fouling I think I have seen
that word in the newspapers occasional
ly, and therefore I suppose it is a cor
rect word to tlso in this connection
each backed off to the farthest limits of
the circle, which, by the way, was not
a squared circlo. The referee stepped
out of the way, and the rams dashed to
ward each other. When their heads
camo together, there was a terrific crash,
and the force of tho concussion threw
them as far apart as tho length of this
All the guests looked tho full length
of tho tabic from tho passion flowers at
one end to tho bride's cake in the far
perspective, and then at tho preacher in
tho middlo distance, but nobody said
"Then," continued tho preacher,
"they took theirpkices, apparently nono
the worse for tho encounter. Agniu, evi
dently at a preconcerted signal from the
referee, they dashed together. This time
the shock was even moro terrific than
tho lirst, and I noticed that as ono of
them went bark to his ah, what do
they call it, corner? he was a little un
steady on his legs. "
"Grrggy !" ventured the bride,
"I believe that is tho technical term,"
replied the preacher, "although, as I
have intimated, I am not at all familiar
with sporting phraseology. When time
was cnlietl for the third round ahem
that is, I mean to say when tho rams
had recovered strength for a third col
lision there was another rush, a
crash, and ono of the rums, tho one yon
so aptly described as 'groggy (with an
acknowledgment to the bride) fell to
his knees. His adversary did not seem
inclined to follow up his advantage, but
possibly ho may have been restrained by
the rnled of tho meeting. At any rate,
after contemplating his fallen foe grave
ly for a moment ho walked back to his
place. Tho other ram, after resting
briefly, struggled to his feet. Tho third
ram tho one I have called tho refereo
looked at hitn rather inquiringly, as
it seemed to me, but tho warrior show
ed uo sign of recognition. Ho ambled
to his sido of tho ring and faced about.
A murmur of souio sort seemed to go
through tho flock. The odds were ap
parently 3 to 1 in favor of tho other
ram that is to say, it secmod to be the
general opinion that tho ram with the
weak knees had been outclassed, as tho
other ono was decidedly tho heavier of
"However, tho smaller ram seemed
to have wonderful recuperative powers.
When tho proper interval had elapsed,
he enmo np smiling, as it were. I even
thought I conldseeatwicklo in his eye,
for I was quite close to tho fence, and
this thing took flaco only a littlo dis
tance away. As tho refereo stepped back
from tho center of the ring, where he
kept his position between the meetings,
the other two rams drove at each other
pclltnclL At tho very instant when
their hard horns would have met, how
ever, the smaller rani sudilculy changed
his course to the right, and tho other
went through tho ranks liko a catapult.
"Just as ho turned abi. evidently
boiling ever with indignation at the
trick which had been played on him,
the other one, with tho acftled forco given
by a longer run from one side of the cir
cle to a point several feet outside cf it,
where the largrr ram's momentum had
carried him, shot at him like a cannon
ball, striking him full in the face and
driving him several feet away, where
ho by limp and helpless. The third
ram, who was promptly on the spot, as
I suppose every competent referee should
be, nodded bis head several times in
deed it looked to me as if he was count
ing and thep the fallen ram failing to
rise the whole flock marched away to
ward a knoll in another part of tho
meadow with the victorious ram at the
head. Presently the defeated ram got
en his feet and made his way to a se
cluded spot down by a littlo run, where
I saw him reclining in the shade of a
large willow treo as I rode away.
"What an interesting study natural
history is," said the bride's grandmoth
er as she adjusted her glasses.
"It is indeed." said the groom's fa
ther, coughing behind his napkin. Chi
An Irish Stadent'a Reply.
An Irish student, who some years ago
attended tho university of Edinburgh,
called upon one of the most celebrated
teachers of tho German flute, desiring
to know on what terms he would give
him a few lessons. The flute player in
formed him that he generally charged
2 guineas fcr tho first month and 1
guinea for the second. "Then, byxny

METHODS OF METHODISM.
The Intereet Wbleh Attaches to the Com -Ina;
Much interest generally centers
around the conferences to be held in
Illinois this week of the Methodist
Episcopal church, as matters which
would affect the entire future policy
of the church may come np for con
sideration, if not for definite action.
Some of these things can only be
settled in the general conference of
the entire church, but tbe delegates
will undoubtedly consider the mat
ter, and the expressions at the con
ference will be a very good indica
tion of the drift of sentiment in the
church. Among the propositions,
which, if supported, would inaugur
ate radical changes in the existing
discipline and rnles governing the
1. That bishops shall hereafter be
appointed for a term of years and not
2. That the office and authority
of presiding elder shall be abol
ibhed. 3. That preachers shall be se
lected and retained by a vote of con
gregations and not by assignment of
conference. " '
These three propositions arc not
the result of recent agitation or dis
cussion, but have for some years been
considered by members of the church,
although it has been only of late
years that the supporters of the
movement have gained noticeable
strength. They have been brought
up from time to time at the succes
sive meetings, but have never had
sufficient following tu demand defi
nite action on the part of the meet
ing. i'he changes contemplated, it is
claimed by their supporters, would
have theellectof bringing the church
in closer touch with the mass of its
members. At the same time, it is
said also that the changes are too
radical and sweeping as proposed to
bring out any strong support by a
majority of the delegates. Says one
"The abolition of the oflice of bishop
would have the effect of retiring
without honor men who had spent
their lives in the service of the
church, and labored hard in its
upbuilding. Some of the less radf
cal adherents say they do not object
to thi9 movement if it is put in force
by retiring tho bishop the same as
a superannuated preacher, which
would take them out of active ser
vice, yet not deprive them of their
authority or functions. The feeling
is that some action in this direction
should be taken, but how to do it is
The Pealilins Elder.
"As to abolishing the presiding
elders, that is hardly within the
bounds of possibility. It is true that
the matter has becn'discussed litf ally
for years. Tho elder stands
in the same relation to the
district as a commanding olliccr does
to his army. It is his duty to see
that the church discipline is observed
and further he stands between the
church and pastor as a mediator,
seeing that each totes fair with the
other. There less adherents to the
proposition to abolish presiding
elders than to any of the others.
Naming Their Own Preachers.
"Another matter that will be car
ried no further than to be informally
discussed is the proposition that
preachers shall bo named and re
tained by vote of the individual con
gregations. The present method of
placing preachers has become so
thoroughly fixed or cstablisecd that
it will probably not be altered. The
reasons for this are that if a preach
ers is placed with a congregation
and does not seem adapted to it, or
is a poor preacher, it is obvious that
he should be transferred. Or, if a
good preacher is secured and the con
gregation is loath to part with him
that in spite of the fact his field of
labor should be enlarged by a trans
