HOW MARTHA GOT RELIGION.
“Mammy’s” Efforts of Great Assist ance in the Case. I was seated one evening in the warehouse of a friend in the quaint old town of Newbcrne, North Caro lina. On the opposite side of the street was an African church in which a revival meeting was being held. From the partly opened windows came the sound of shouts and the usual melodies of the colored race. Suddenly the dooc opened and three young colored women emerged there from. The one in the middle was be ing supported by her companions on either side and her arms were swing ing in the air, and as they walked along the street she shouted In wild emotion something that sounded like '■(lot salvation! Foun’ my Savior! Hoi’ onto my Lawd!” and was led away by her friends. Cleaning up the office in the corner of the warehouse was an old colored women. Turning to her I said: “Auntie, what i» the matter with that girl?" “Why, bless your soul, chile! ” Aun tie responded quickly, “don’t you know what’s the matter with her? Why. she's got ’liglon! But she ain’t got it half as bad as some people has. Had to hoi’ my Marfa down for ’n hour and a half when she got it.” I said: “Is that so Auntie? Did Martha keep it7” "Oh, yes. she's kept it; lost It once; but she got it again,“ “How did she get it again?" "Well, sir. I just done licked It into her.”—“The Sunday Magazine.” PESTS OF CITY STREETS. Beggars With Sham Afflictions Are Nothing New. Beggars who feign diseases are no new thing in the streets of London. They existed in Charles IPs time, oniy then the beggar was called a "ruffler,” a “huff” or a “shabharoon ” It he was deaf and dumb he was called a “dum merer.” The woman who sung hymns and led borrowed children by the hand was called a "clapperdozen.” Vagrancy is no new thing, though it practically did not exist in mediaeval times. It was when the cities ceased to be con fined within their own walls, and long before the days of policemen, that the people get beyond the control of the aldermen and their officers and vag rancy became a regular profession The first English law against beggars was made by ypnry VIII, who gave licenses to beg to the old and impo tent and ordered that all other beg gars should be whipped and sent bach to their parishes. MAN’S UNREASONABLENESS is ofteu as great as woman’s. But Thos. S. Austin, Mgr. of the "Repub lican,” of Leavenworth, Ind., was not unreasonable when he refuted to al low the doctors to operate on his wife for female trouble. “Instead,” be says, “We concluded to try Electric Bitters, My wife was then so sick she could hardly leave her bed and five physicians had failed to relieve her. After taking Electric Bitter she was perfectly cured and can now per form all her household duties" Guaranteed by Jas Hullinger i Co., druggists at 23d and Larimer Street. Price 50c.
