A few years ago a ludicrous, albeit vexatious, incident occur red at a church in Larkhall. A rustic couple, after having had the banns published tho prescrib ed number of times, proceeded to tho church to bo joined in boly wedlock. Tho service was con ducted without a hitch until tho officiating clergyman arrived at that part where he asked, "Wil liam Wisher, wilt thou have this woman to bo thy wedded wife?" when the bridegroom replied, with somo astonishment, that his name was not William Wisher. The ceremony was, of course, suspended, and on investigation being made as to the cause of the mistake, it transpired that the bridegroom had written to the sexton of tho church requesting him to have the banns published, and concluded his letter thus: "So no more from j'our Well Wisher and Man- Williams." The sexton, supposing that William Wisher was thej name of the intending Benedict, publish ed the banns accordingly, and the disappointed couple were comp'elled to await the publica tion of the banns in their proper names. A unique instance of the banns boing forbidden by the intending bridegroom happened at the parish churoji of Seaford about the middle of the century. While the minister was reading the an nouncement he was interrupted by one of tho congregation, who called out loudly, "I forbid the wedding." He was requested to walk into tho vestery and explain his' reasous for so doing. "Are you a relation?'' required the clergy. "Noy replied the man, "I'm the bridegroom himself; but having learned that Ciss has a tongue that, after marriage, t will run faster than the clack of her master's mill, I am resolved to be' off; so your reverence may marry her yourself, if you please." Tho precentor of a country pa rish church near Arbroath one Sunday announced from his place that "there was a solemn purpose of marriage between Alexander Spink of Fisher's Loan and El speth Hackett of Burn Wynd," when tho parish beadle (who was ' something of a character) sudden ly rose and unceremoniously in terrupted the proceedings by ex claiming: "That's wrang, that's wrang! It's no' Sanders Spink o' Fisher's Loan that's gaun to marry Elspeth Hackett, but lang" Sanders Spink o' Srnidd- Croft." I The name of one of the parties " had been wrongly stated in the proclamation paper, and this was the way the deadle took to cor rect it. Some years ago a middle-aged agricultural labourer called up on the session-clerk of Alloa and asked him what the charqe was for publishing the "cries" i.e., banns of marriage) three times on the same Sunday. "A pound," replied the clerk. ''Aye," said the other, "an' what d'yo tak' when ye tak' two Sundays to dae't?" "Half-a-guiuea," was the reply. "An what d'ye chairge when ye tak' three Sundays to't?" was the rustic's next query. "Seven-aud-six," answered the clerk, with an amused air. "Ayo, man," rejoined the querist, "I see, the langer To tak' to dea't, the cheaper its gets: just cry awa' ill ye pay yersel' I" And he took his departure without more ado. (Tit Bits) in Inglicau Bishop's Elocution. "When I 'first arrived in New Zealand,'' said an Anglican bishopi "a Maori chief came to me and said that he wished to be biptized. I knew that he had two wive3, so I told him that he must first persu ade one of them to return to her family. He said ,iie feared that would be difficult; but that he would see what could be done and come back to me in two months. When he returned, he exclaimed: 'Now, missionary, yon may baptize me, for I have only one wife.' I asked: 'What have 3-011 done, with our dear sister, your first wife?' He replied, smacking his lips: ' I have eaten her.'" The Photography of Colours. At tho Academy of Sciences recently, Mr. Lippmann pre sented'' nine colour photographs obtained by M. M. Lumiere of Lyons, through his process. The objects reproduced were chromos, such as are used for decorating biscuit boxes, etc. This is con sidered to bo a progress of some importance, as it shows that a number of colours may be re produced, even when of the most delicate tints. M. Lippmann has been able to reduce the time of exposure from several minutes to a few seconds; he is also ex perimenting with electric light of great intensity. These photo graphs of colour will be exhibit ed at the Chicago exhibition. For the third time little Tom nry Figg had asked his father what was the cause of the desert of Sahara. Finally, the old man laid down his paper and answer ed: "I reckon it was formed when the Isrealites lost their sand; and if j-ou don't quit ask ing me so many questions, I'll see that your mother puts you to bed before I get home hereafter." "But, paw, how can you see her put me to bed if she puts me to bed before yon get hornet" And that question was Tommy's last for that evening. Terre Haute Express. FOR THE P. C. A. According to an old supersti tion of the mediaeval Church, whenever a cock crows a lie is being told. The reason that cocks crow so persistently in the early morning is becanso the morning papers are being set up. A good story is told of the Indians, who replied when a missionary asked them if they were willing to abstain from work on Sunday: "Yes, and not only on Sunday, but on all other days as well." Superintendent (to his men:) "Yesterday, for once, wo tho roughly disgraced onrselves. By the time we go to the scene of the fire the house was burned down to the ground. For tho future wo shall put tho new rule in force: 'That tho whole bri gade is to be on the spot five minutes before the outbreak of a fire. After the dance Little inno cent: "which figure hi the quadrille do you like best, Mr. Spooner?" Enamoured Youth: "Yours Miss Lamberton." "I wish to say to my congre gation" said tho minister, "that the pulpit is not responsible for tho error of the printer on the tickets for the concert in the Sunday school-room. Tho con cert is for the benefit of the Arch Fund, not the Arch Fiend. Wo will now sing bynin six, 'To err is human, to forgive divine.' " "Come, general" said Miss Bosebuds, "toll us the story of your achievements in the field. I do so love to hear you talk of yourself." "And my reward?" asked the veteran. "A kiss," returned the girl. "Well," ejaculated the green-eyed civilian who was calling, "that is a case of giving a kiss for a blow." ruck. Elderly party (to small boy) "Come my little man, I guess you'll let me have your seats?" Small boy "Guess again." El derly party "What! You won't give it up? Wouldn't you give it up to your father if ho came in?" Small boy "You just bet your life I would. I wouldn't ride with no ghost." Society. "What is the matter with that baby?" growled an irascible hus band, as the little one persisted in howling and kicking to tho extent of its little might. "The matter is, sir," calmly replied the wife, as sho strode up and down the floor, "the matter is that this baby inherits your tem per." And the husband returned to his paper with a gloomier face than before. Boston Courier. Minnie "I wonder what ever became of Jennie Smart, who took first prize in our graduating class?"
