squatter's cabins, etc., and but little
else. He found an old acquaintance

Seeing the Beantlful.
Franklin tells a story of a man whose
two lgs wero very unlike one hand
somely turned, the other deformed.
When any one who visited him looked at
the uly les and commented on it, he
held the man to be looking for the Lad
side of things and folk. But if the vis
itor saw his handsome limb and com
mented on its beauty he held the fellow
to be worth esteem, for he looked at the
good eide of things and probably would
see the best in his neighbors and friends.
Is it easier to see other people's virtues
than their faults? I have at last come to
see that folk are far better than tlu - get
credit for being.
When Carlyle and Emerson walked
London and saw the horror of gin pal
aces and the miseries of poverty, the
former said, "What do you think now
of the Saxon stock?" Emerson answered,
"Tho moro I see of the English people
the more I admire their power and won
der at their progress." A Btory is told of
Jesus that he was walking with some of
his friends when they came on the car
cass of a dog. They turned up their
noses in horror, but Jesus Btooped down,
and looking said, "But liehold what beau
tiful teeth he has." St. Louis Globe

Every official iu Washington just now
is besieged by jteople in quest of office,
and the treasury department has prol
ably more than its share of them. Offi
cials know how it is themselves, how
ever, and their good nature is almost su
perhuman. Among the ej tra well bal
anced pues is Logan Carlisle, chief clerk
of the treasury, and to him came a youth
from Indiana, who wanted to know
alxjut a place that he had in view.
"It's this way," eaid the young man
after some talk. "I'm like the young man
who had his leg ..ut off by a locomotive.''
"How's that?" inquired Logan.
"I'm in need of immediate attention.
"Oh, in that case," laughed Logan,
"you'd better go to the Emergency hos
pital." "Well," exclaimed the youth, making
a low- bow, "here I am." And Logan
agreed on the spot to attend to his needs
at the earliest opportunity. Washing

"Assistant pastor" is a new title for a
woman and seems to bo so far held by
only one under this name. The pioneer
in this field finds her home and work in
Brooklyn, where, at a salary of $400 a
year, she relieves the pastor of many
routine duties that in a large city parish
unwarrantably consume his time and
energy. The office might better be
called ''pastor's wife's assistant." for its
work is taking a direct burden from the
shoulders of those long suffering women.
