Desk, chairs, typewriter, and letter press woro a conventional equipment, but tho establishment's sato was manyslreslareorthanlhoaothat usuallyhold pipers and Kerns In dramas, and over tho door were three red electric light bulbs. Tho latter were so arranccd thatthoy wore lit automat ically wlienevor any one approached the efflce door from the outside. Their pur pose wns to announce to the husband Ms wife's coming.

It Mas as an Irl'ili jnnitross that sho Uowcd her hus band flirting with Ills plump employee alter the latter had been released. When the wife seemed about ready to break out an grily, the red Hunts signalled to tho hus band an Important customer. Ho both women wero hidden In tho safe. Tho npproachinc per son was tho office boy on a trifling errnnd. but ths spell ot Imprisonment had been long enotith to complete tho wife's rovenpe. Bhe issued minus lier dlscuislnc wlir, and nercoll niata was in tatters, with her hair strearulni; down her baek. In appearing ns the janltress. tha wife's silks gae way to calico, and thcro was shift to another color ot hair. That was as tnorougli n disunite ns usually accompanies uch changes In furce, but the actress Bate no li'ntthat the Irishwoman was not another person.

U Wns rnslor of tlio Vonrth Preshytertnn Church nnd Wns Accused nf Immorality. At the rogular monthly mooting of the Pres hytery. held yestorday In tho chapel ot the First Prosbvterlan Church. Iho llev. Dr. Jo seph It. Kerr of the Fourth Presbyterian Church, who was accused of having Immoral relations with ltobccca Booth, n member ot his congregation, was deposed from the Chris tian ministry. Tho Itov. Dr. N. W. Conklln wns assigned to preach in tho Fourth Prosby torlan Church noxt Sunday morning nnd even ing and to declaro the pulpit vacant. Ho Is also to inform the congregation that It Is to solecta now pastor hnd until such a selection has been mado the Itov. George Alexander Is to act as Modorator of tho church. The resolution deposing Dr. Korr was adoptod only after a session lasting four hours. Before the Presbj tery mot it was decided not to present tho report of ncommitteo from tho Fourth Presbyterian Church on what It know of Dr. Kerr's misconduct. The action subse quently tnkon was based on n letter from Dr. hcrr to tho Presbytery. In which he asked to bo uepood and mado what Is described as "a practical confoeslon of guilt." After eonBhlorablo discussion a resolution deposing Dr. Kerr wus passed by tho Presby tery, then icconsidered and amended. What changes wero mado could not bo ascertained. Before tlio amended rosolutlon was carried, tho llev. Dr. Mullaly moved that. In view of the fact that Dr. Kerr's letter was not a complete confession of guilt, judgment bo suspended nnd a oommltteo bo nnpolnted to wait on him. This motion was lost, nnd then the resolution was carried by a ote of 00 to 4. Dr. Birch, the stated clerk, said after the meeting of the Presbytery that a resolution was passed to the effect that tho judgmont alono ot that body in thn Kerr caso should bo mado public The Kerr caso took up so much tlmo that tho Presbytery ndiourned toTmecr ngalu next Monday nt 2 o clock. The only othor business that, came before it was the iicceptnnco of the Itev. Dr. John It. Paton's letter to tho Now York Presbyterian Church. Dr. Paxton wns called to the chureh In February Inst, after tho Itev. Dr. Itoblnson had resigned unilar press ure. Ho. did not accept the call, but agreed to occupy tho pulpit until lis made up his mind what to do. Ho notified the Presbytery yesterdny and returned his letter. He is go ing abroad with his family.
