Piety With Cooking.
A well known bishop relates that
while on a recent visit to the south he
was in a small country town where,
owing to the scarcity of good serv
ants, most of the women preferred to
do their own work. He was awakened
quite early by the tones of a clear
soprano voice singing ''Nearer, My
God to Thee." As the bishop lay in
bed he meditated upon the piety which
his hostess must possess which en
abled her to go about her task early
in the morning singing such a noble
At breakfast he spoke to her about
it, and told her how pleased he was.

hymn I boil the eggs by three verses
for soft and five for hard.-"Rochester

the puzzle editor the neatest and best
written letter and the most correct
answersshe not only gave the cor
rect names of the towns but also the
names of the counties in which towns
are located. And her punctuation is
almost perfect. Jeannette Koenig is a

nicely-written and correctly punctu

editor or any other editor for that
Some of the answers this week are
no credit to the writers. Hereafter
all answers must be enclosed in en
