"That is a picture of the old Puritans go

pressively. "Here you see them tramping through
the snow in single file, every man with his
gun thrown over his shoulder, ready for in
stant use in ca.-e of an attack."
"What did they have to carry guns for?"
asked llobhy, with interest.
"To keep off the Indians," replied Mr.
"That is the kind of men that built up
this country. Not the bitterest cold, nor
the heaviest snow, nor the fact that they
went in extreme peril of their lives could
prevent them from performing their re
ligious duties. Just think of our sturdy,
pious forefathers when you don't feel like
going to church and remember the hard
ships they endured to enjoy the privilege of
worshiping on Sunday, a privilege which I
am afraid you are inclined to hold too

They had come in from a long walk
through several buildings, an old man and
his patient wife. And they were compar

"Emily," he said, "there's one thing
we've passed a good many times today that
I'd like to see. I kept thinking maybe
you'd see it and say something about it

to get fooled."

CongresBman Allen's Latest.
Congressman John Allen called on the
president the other day. While there Allen
asked the president how much the new
baby weighed. "Nineteen pounds and a
quarter," the president, a bit absentmind
ed, replied. But he immediately corrected
himself and said, "Nine and a quarter."
Allen laughed and said it reminded him of
a story. "A fellow down our way came
into the club one night and said to a friend:
'I am the proud father of a new baby.
What'U you have?' 'A cigar,' the friend
replied. 'How much does it weigh?' 'Four
pounds,' said the father. 'Oh, thunder!'
the friend exclaimed; 'give me a cigarette.' "

him, but the dog got even. He actually
broke off the match, lie knew the regu

himself under the parlor sofa, from

forth such volleys of personal and pro

He admitted having had his breast
branded with a rad iron, with the letter
"D," which marked him forever as a de

regiment after his punishment and
served out the term of enlistment. The
British home office found that he was
