DEACON VS. PARSON.
The Rev. Josiah Franklin Sqainwye had
only accepted the pastorate of the Porcu
pine ilollow charge three months previous
to the time of which we write, yet durint
t his time the parson had made a great host
of friends especially is this assertion tru

As before intimated, the parson was cat

the intelligence pif ceded him that he was
a uaciteior, and the fair members of hi
nock formulated a series of resolutions,
each in b-r own iuiud, to outrival her sis
ters. Every art known to the feminin
mind was brought into requisition, and
lor two months it would have been cx
tremely difficult to conjecture who would
fain the ultimate victorv.
After two months had flown by on rapid
wings, nowever, the parson s heart lay at,
tne ieet 01 an unpretentious but lovablt
damsel, and for the next month his atten
tions were given to her exclusively.' Tha
fact had caused many of the good sisters
to grow green with envy, because one of
their more modest number had won 6u
much attention from the parson, whiL
they were left at the mercy of the few
eligible men in the matrimonial market.
Outside of this there had been nothing
10 mar tae fraternal harmony of the par
ish, nor had anything of an exciting char
acter happened since the parson's advent
On Saturday evening, however. Deacon
Derby sent for the parson to visit his wife,
wno was usen wading out into the chilly
waters of death, and she passed over thi
divide in a few minutes after the arrival
04 tilt; parnun.
The parson tried to console the deacon
on the ground that this loss was his wife's
gain, and spake in very flattering terms of
the departed, to which the deacon replied:
"Ya-as, Sindy wuz ex mighty dootifu
wife, an' wui er mos' powerful hard wurk
er, an' only las' week she hoed ther ter
backer down in ther bottom field, cut ther
fcprouts outen t he noo groun' corn on ther
ridge, toted er sack er corn ter mill, cleared

ai i oner to oe consigned an' notcomDlain
tier grumble ner nothin', w'en ther haim
er womarn in Porcupine Holler 'at 'uld do
nigh ther wurk 'at she'd do."
"Oh," said the parson, "I know it would
le hard to find her equal, and realize tha-:
you will miss her very much, but her lor,
here was full of labor, aa-i nw that she is
at rest you snouVl look forward to the timi
when yon will meet again."
"Ya-os, mebbe that air so, but it do 'pear
luny rotten Daa at she lied ter up an die
jes' at ther very busiest part o' the ye'r,
an' it'll take nigh fifty pounds o my las'
yer s terbacker cran ter put 'er errnr an
then thar'll be ther terbacker ter socker'n
worm ergin nex' week, an' I'm ded sartin
ler lieuer do it myse'r."
"Yes, but grumbling will do no good
now, my uear oroiner, and then your wift
was a faithful Christian, and has gone t
that blissful clime where the weary are a-
rest, and therefore we should be glad even
in our sorrow for her blessed hope of
"That 'peare ter be all ye preacher felleri

"I will do so," said the parson, "bu
when will the funeral take place?"
"Termorry, o' co's."
The funeral was largely attended, au
being the first at which the parson ha
officiated in the parish he delivered an ek-

"It's ther deacon, bedad," said Squim
"Hello, deacon," said Skinner, as he ap

al, he's jest nachaally got ter stop it

over thar ter night an' see w'at she hes ter

The deacon went home, took down hi
old blue jeans coat, got a pair of trousers
10 marcn, which had been pulled too soon
by about six inches at the bottom end of
the legs, used a piece of bed cord for a sus
pender, put on his old slouch hat and start

"Get out of here, I tell you," shouted the
girl, as she made for him with the broom,
and he got up and shook the dpst of the
Wells plantation off his feet.
Returning home he took a short cut
through the mountains, and as he passed
along the narrow path under the bluff on
the river bank he met the parson, who, un
conscious that they were rivals, extended
his hand to the enraged deacon. But in
stead of grasping the parson's band the
deacon began to take off his coat, and said:
"Say, parson, yerve got me ter whup."
"What in the world is the matter with
you, I should like to know?"
"Thar's matter ernuff. Ill whup ye er
yell whup me, one er tutber."
Why, man, what have I done to incur
your displeasure in such a manner?"
"Done ernuff, an' I'll pitch ye offen ther
bank inter the river," and he caught the
parson in his arms.
The parson was by far the smaller man,
but he decided to stick to the deacon closer
than a brot her, while the irate deacon com
menced backing off toward the bank, and,
Js he thought, to hurl the little parson into
the cooling stream, they both fell over, and
the parson seemingly rode down the em
bankment on the carcass of the deacon.
The water was not very deep, but the
parson was the best man of the two in the
water, and after dipping the deacon under
three times he asked:
"Have vou got enough?"
"Then Fll put you under until you do,"
and be dipped him three times more, and
the old fellow yelled:
" 'JS'uff. Lemnie outen yere."
When both were out and standing on the
bank the parson said:
"Well, deacon, as the matter is now over
I would like to know what I have done to
make you treat me in this manner?"
"Wal, ye've did a right smart. Fust,
ye've spiled ther gal I wuz er goin' ter heT
fer my nex' wife, an' now she won't jine
"Who is it?"
"I have done nothing of the kind."
xe air cr liar, an' ye knojy it! Thar,
take ernuther bath," and hemiaea plunge
for the parson, who was standing between
him and the water, but the sprightly par
son stepped to one Bide and the deacon
went in head first.
"Now," said the parson, "I'll keep you
in there until next Sunday if you don't
take that back."
"I'll never cutter," said the deacon, but
the parson was firm and pushed him off
every time be came near the bank, and at
last the deacon said:
"Wal, mebbe I wat er jedgin ye wrong,'
and the parson helped him out, and each
man went his way home.
A month after that the parson and Ma
lindy were married, and when the deacon
heard of it he said, regretfully:
"It's purty dadgasted hard on er feller
w'en his wife's gone an' died jes' w'en he
needs er wife ther wust, an' 'specshaliy
w'en ther crap's sofferin'; but w'at I hate
ther wust is ter think 'at ther parson
preached ther ole Oman's funeral w'en she
died, an' then sot out an' married ther
very gal I hed made up my mind ter marry
afore Sindy wuz in 'er coffin." J. W.

About a Child' Beading.
I do not think it is very serviceable to
make a list of books for children to read.
No two have exactly the same aptitudes,
tastes or kinds of curiosity about the
world, and one story or bit of information
may excite the interest of a class in one
school, or the children in one family, which
will not take at ail with others. The only
thing is to take hold somewhere and to be
gin to use the art of reading to find out
about things as yon use your eyes and ears.
