''Shirt Sleeve" Christians.
It was Wednesday ni ;ht tLu regular
night lor the weekly praer meeting- and
the le;:ture room was uncommonly full.
The pastor had taken for his subject the
necessity ol i lit isii-m w irk. and lie gn-w
morethim usually elo lue ii over his theme,
lie exhorted his henrers to ut the same
earnestness and force ii. to their spiritual
labors that they did into their business.
"Why,'' he continued "when I tome
round to see you in your working hours, in
your ollices and shops, or on your farms, I
don't find you with ki 1 gloves on. No,
your hands are hare and your coats are off
and sleeves turned well back out c.f the
way; you're working tht n. Now we want
the same thing iu the church; we want
more shirt sleeve Christians."
Having reached this climax, the homely
force of w hich made a visible impression
upon Ids hearers, he called upon good old
Deacon Shepard to lead in prayer.
The deacon, as usual, sat iu the front
row, and his long, spai e form rose slowly
and wit h characteristic dignity. The seat
was near tho big woot! stove, and the fire
was n hot one. He tho ight it wise, there

smail, while the undei coat was too large,
it was easier to take of the two garments
than tho outer one iJone. The deacon
knew this, mid was aei ustomed to button
the inner coat liefore re iiovjng the other.
Unfortunately, ou this o-.-casion ho ne

Dog nomenclature i'.qnite an interesting

the breed from its hal it of following game

THE CHURCH MOUSE.
Tb. Experience of Two Bonn, Little Blald
An 1 1 .... 1... ..
ens One Bright December Morning.
Rosy and Tiny were two bonny little
maidens. They were twin sisters and so
much ulike that scarcely any one but their
mother could tell them apart.
They were very fond of going to church
with their parents and would sit quite
still duriug the long service, for they great
ly enjoyed the organ and tho fine sincring
of t he choir. One cold December morning
,,,c.ir mtther called them
and tvinsr on
their pretty scarlet cloaks arid hoods, bade

them go alone, as their father was not well
nn 1 she must remain fit home to nurse
him. So the little twins trotted off hand
in hand, find entered the family puv ill
which t 'icy were accustomed to sit.
The choir was just beginning to sing a
hymn, and Hosy had found the place in the
book when scratch, scratch, scratch!
What could that Ik-? .Then a squeak and
patter of little feet ami, looking around,
they saw a saucy brown mouse, who, feel
ing rather hungry, after the proverbial cus
tom of church mice, had ventured out in
search of foot.. Tiny had a bit of bread in
her pocket which she had put away at
breakfast t i me for the birds, so pulling it ou t
she pushed it along the seat, and they were
both delighted at seeing tho mouse mak
ing a hearty meal. Did not their fatL r
find mother laugh when, leaching horn ,
the twins told their morning's experience

V.'b.o Iritrodui-eil Cliristma& Trees.
A Christmas trie, with its branches
loaded with toys and knieknacks, makes,
when its tiny candles of variouseolorshave
all beeu lighted, a pretty olioct. We have
grown so accustomed to see it now that it
is bard to think that there ever was a time
when Christmas jollifications were not
adorned wit h a nicely decked tree. Asa
matter of fact, the use of the tree is of a
very recent origin in Krigiand and Amer
ica. It is sard that the kite prince consort,
who was the father of the Prince of Wales,
introduced the custom of Christmas trees
in England in 15-10. There were grand fes
tivities in Windsor castle, one of the homes
of Queen Yietori i, and he provided a hand
some tree covered iih beautiful presents
that were afterwaid distributed among
the queen's guests, old and young alike.
Prince Albert borrowed the idea from hi-
native country of liermany, where the
tree has been a feat are of Christmas gat h
erings for a long period.
i: hind the Sun.
There sat two hares beneath a tree,
Whrn day was nearly done.
And wondered what there was to see
Behind that grt-ut red sun.
When, with a tread that none could hear,
A merry sprite went past.
And through bis horn, into their ear,
lie blew, oh, such a blast.
That up they sprang ami off they Cew,
As only ban s can race;
The plu fal sprite, be followed too.
And uu'er was such a chase!
XE'EU WAS Sl'CH A CHASE.
Away ho blew, and on they went
The sen tank iu tho west;
And, tili lucir sOKrk of breath was spent,
They nevt-r sloyiied to rest.
The sprite took wing to jaia the elves.
And vanished iu the air;
The hares sat dova lo cool themselves.
And wonder where tbey were.
"This eenis the land of uii;ht to me.
For there's the muou." cried one;
"I really think at lust that we
Hiivo j;ot behind the sun!"
That truth is safe and mighty as well as
beautiful is illustrated by the following
incident of a boy twelve years old who,
with only truth a a weapon, conquered a
smart and shrewd lawyer who was fight
ing for a bad cause.
Walter was the important witness in a
lawsuit. One of the lawyers, after cross
questioning hint severely, said: .
"Your father has been talking to you'
and telling you how to testify, hasn't he?";
"Yes," said the boy. :
"Now," said the lawyer, "just tell us
how your father told you to testify." i
"Well," said the boy modestly, "father)
told me that the lawyers would try to tan-
gle me in uiy testimony, but if I would
just be careful and tell the truth I could'
tell the same thing every time."
