Pat HI. Font In It.
Rev. S. L Conde, a Piesbytertan min
ister at Rockford, has been preaching
against charity balls In much the same
strain that has characterized the utter
ances of certain ministers In this city, but
with different results, for the ball there
was a brilliant success. This so offended
some of his congregation that they got up
a petition asking for his resignation.
Last Sunday he created a sensation in his
ehurch. While reading from a chapter In
Pbillippians he fell forward as if In a
faint. Several of the occupants of front
pews spraDg forward to his assistance,
but before they could reach him he raised
up and explained that the passage which
he had read came in so pertinently in
connection with the request for his resig
nation because of his opposition to the
reoent charity ball that it overcame him
Having made this explanation, he asked
If there were any present who would like
to have their names removed from the
petition requesting his withdrawal.
No one seemed disposed to embraoe the
opportunity so unexpectedly presented,
and the services continued in the usual
way. The minister's opponents insist
that he was not III and that the affair was
almply a scheme to awaken sympathy
with a view to. securing a new hold upon

THE LIME KILN CLUB.
The Subject of Honesty Discussed by
Waydown Belw and Elder Toot.
After the reading of the minutes of the
last meeting and other routine Dullness,
Brother Gardner stated that he had been
asked to secure an expression of opinion on
the question: "Dcss It Pay to be Strictly
Honeetr" He wool 1 call upon Sir Iaaao Wal-
pole, as the oldest tiember, first.
"I war In hopes c at queshun would nebber
cum up in dli club, "said the old veteran in
reply. "It ar' a q leehun which has caused
me many sleeplea nights, an' which I bev
nebber bin able to settle to my own satlaf aok-
bun. On one oca shun I found a wallet In
de road. Itcontaned $30, an when I re
stored It to de ovner he handed me all de
money an' thanked me beside. On several
other occashuns I hsv found wallets and spent
$3 worth of time htm tin' up de o wrier an' bin
rewarded wid 10 emts. A grocer once gin
me a $10 dollar bill fur s l I handed It
back an' he glv' me half a pound of ten. De
very next week I giv him a 5 bill fur a
$3, an' he kept it en swore dat I was a liar.
"If 1 buy meat de butcher works mo' or
less bone in on me,n continued the old man.
"If I buy wood or coal it ar' alius a lcetle
abort. I expect de dry goods man to cheat
me mo' or less, an' de hatter an shoemaker
doan' alius stick to .'acks. If I war1 strictly
honest I reckon I should land in do poo'houss
In about a year. I doan' advise any one to
be dishonest, but it ar' my opinyun dat if
you find a pug dog runnln' around de streets
he should be taker home and tied up to de
bed post until some one advertises a liberal
reward an' no queshuns axod."
Waydown Be bee Chen spoke as follows:
"Dar'wasa tim when I was so strictly
honest dat ober fifty of tbo nayburs' chickens
used to roost in my back yard o' nights. At
de same time dem nayburs borrowed money
of me an' dun forgt to pay it back, an' if I
left a spade out dot lis ober night it was gone
in de mawnin'. If I owed a debt I ached to
go an' wake de man up at midnight an' pay
him. If I found hiJf a dozen lead nickels in
my change, I melted 'em up fur bulleu to
shoot cata If I d; skivered ten cents on de
floah in de postofil I handed it to de post
master. I practiced dis course fur Sve long
years, an' doorin' di.t time I no. only run be
hind $1,000, but I hoard myself spoken of on
all sides as a greenhorn, a pancake an' an
idiot I finally decided to cbenge. In five
