There was a congregation once in
the early days of Connecticut who
called a new minister, whom they had
never seen, to their pulpit. But when
the day of the installation arrived
they were confronted by two preach
ers, each claiming to be the veritable
man. One rested his claim on having
a lilael: coat, the oilier on having an
installation sermon in his pocket.
After a lengthy debate on the situa
tion, the elders of the church arrived
at the following conclusion: That
either the man w ithout a sermon had
stolen li is coat, or else the man with
out the coat had stolen his sermon;
so thev rejected both.

MINING IN A RIVER.
The Washed-Down Deposits In the

The inining oi coal in the bed of the
Susquehannah river at Northumber
land. Pa , bas become a local industry
9f no mean proportions. It is not of
sufficient importance to attract the
capitalist, but a good day's wages is
made at it by scores of men who find
the work more congenial than work
on the farm. The explanation of the
existence of the coal is simple.
It has been washed to its present
location in the north branch of the
river from Wilkesbarre, Nanticoke,
and Pittston by the Hoods of the past
twenty years. A big dam at Sunbury
has prevented the coal from being
carried down further and distributed
in tho main stream. Rivermen say
that layers several fe?t in thickness
now cover the b -d for many miles above
the dam. . At low water the cal is
eas ly mined, and this is the manner
of 0!er,iui.iiis: Tha workers start out
early in the moruiuf with two large
Hat-bottomed ro.vb-j.its, and casting
anchor in five to nin;; feet of n-ater,
begin their labors.
They are supplied with a long
handiud scoop netting. fimi!a" in
shape to a round-pointed shovel.
I'sing one of the boat as a base of
operations, the m'ner pr.shes his net
into the accumulations of mu 1. sand
and coal lying on the be rock i f the
river. In raising i'., by one or two
dexterous movement, he washes all
the mud and sand out of the net The
renia n ler of the haul, which is half
a bushel of coal, is d -posited iu the
second bout. The coal so obtained is
entirely free from shite, and ranges in
size from chestnut to small Ktove. It

"You're seriously hurt, sir," he said
in his most sympathetic manner.
"Nothing wrong with me," snapped

"But your eye, sir. is badly dam

doubtful whether they could continue
their existences here or on some other

into hysterics, and not even the mas
