by two men who were sound asleep
In one of the front pews. He called
attention to the fact, and one of the
lleepors was aroused, and did not
transgress again, but his partner did
not wake to the rebuke, and quietly
slept on. The parson became indig

books in the pulpit with him, he tired
pne or two at the sleeper, but without
tvnll, and then lie unloaded all tho
books he had at the Intruder, to the
IStonlshment of the congregation, who
by this time wore tittering at a great
?ate, but the sleeper didn't seem to
mind It much, for he looked up,
Mianged his position, and fell asleep

probably unparalleled In history, but
t goes to show that there's a limit to
what preachers will stand, even when
they are In the pulpit. And they are
