Wen 'Opkins gets 'eme, as wasn't for some time haftcr mc.

Fer 'all' a minute Hi leeks at Mm in 'errer. ""Opkins. you're niver going te the Hanglo-Cathelics hagin ?" Hi says then. "That Hi am," he says, and Hi sees he was then determined as it wasn't nivcr no use te hargue. "Hi likes their ways and Hi'm going te be a Hanglo-Cathelic. Hi'm tired of bean a 'alf way church man," he keeps hen, slew like, as it might be he was a saying it out of book, " and Hi'm going te be one of they as knows where they stand." "You'll knew nethiuk, 'Opkius," Hi sajs quite md'nrnful, "if you joins them Hanglo-Cathelics :is IK wishes Hi 'adn't niver 'card of nor yen either, as IK niver thought you was that weak te be took in by boys in red and purple dresses as their hewii mothers wouldn't a known 'cm." " Hi knows what hi likes,' he growls, a drinking 'is cefiee that quick as chokes 'im, thre' bean 'et as Hi wouldn't say ITi was sorry for "im. "Well,' Hi says, quite sharp, "go sharp, " where you likes for all of me, and Hi 'epes you'll he 'appy a leaving your hewii wife at 'umc, as isn't se much te you as them Hanglo-Cnthelics for hall she's lived with you twenty years come next month."' " Ge there with me, then," lie says. " That Hi won't, as tiethiiik couldn't persuade me," Hi answers, and at lafet he gees helT alone, and me a feeling as bad as nivcr was, thre' there nivcr 'adn't bean nethiuk se serious come between us ha ha ferc, and setiicthink besides as keeps a saying as Hi 'adn't mich the last of a bad business. lie come 'eme at hejh in mighty geed spirits as Hi'tn &ure he wasn't, aud my 'cart that 'cavy, as he might a seen Hi 'ad bean a crying if he 'adn't bean like the rest of the men, se took hup with them selves as 'as no heyes for hanybedy helsc. The next morning as it might a beau 10 o'clock, as Hi was a wishing me and 'Op kins 'adn't nivcr left Hingland, Hi 'cars the gcll as was scrubbing the steps a say ing, " Yes sir, she's at'einc in the parlor," and in walks Parson Bighter as was at Saint Jonathan's, and me with the tears as wasn't dry en my cheeks. "What is the matter, my dear Mis. 'Opkins," he says, that sympathizing as was heneugk te go straight te your 'art, "jeu seemte be in trouble this morning. ;'He, Mr. Bighter," Hi says, "as maybe you'll net believe it,but my 'art is broken, and its hall haleng of they as Hi wishes they was in the Red Sea before Hi 'cars of 'cm." " Yeu seem excited, Mrs. 'Opkins," he hanswers, "pray be calm and tell me wot wet ivcr is it you mean, and remember as it is a hunchristian spirit as wishes harm te hanyene," he keeps hen very seething. "It's them Hanglo-Cathelies," Hi ex claims, "as 'Opkins is se took hup with as nobody couldn't a make me belicve, and him a saying as he will belong te they, and couldn't you keep "im from it, Mr. Bighter, as he will net listen te inc, the' Hi gees hen my knees te 'im as Hi 'ave nivcr done yet te no-man aud Hi 'epes Hi nivcr may." "Hi "ardly likes te hinterfere in such a matter," he says, cautious like, as if he didn't rightly knew Ms own mind, " Mr. 'Opkins happen rs te me like a man as 'as decided views." " 'Opkins is that firm as he'd let you cut Mm te hinch bits, like a crazy woman ni once reads of as 'ad a spite haginst 'cr cousin thre' 'er bean 'andsemer than she and kills 'er in the night, hafere yen could move Mm," Hi puts in. "Werry true," he says, "werry true aud such bean the case, Hi couldn't 'epe te de no geed a speaking te Mm, as Hi am sorry ne aen t uagree with you ana wishes you both belonged te Saint Jonathans.' "'Opkins may go te the 'Oly Presence if he likes," says Hi, "bntw'en Hi gees it ull be te your church, Mr. Bighter, as isn't se Mgh as IK 'ave bean haccustemed te," Hi hadds, for Hi thinks he. alight as well sec Hi wasn t just a hignerant per son as didn't knew what was right and proper, "but none of your OIy Prescnce for me," Hi finishes. "Hi 'ave a Mgh respect for Mr. Day as is at the 'Oly Presence," he says, net hap pening te justly take in what Hi 'ad said, "and Hi would net 'ave Mm think ni was meddling in Ms parish, as Hi should be if ni tells your 'usband as he 'ad best come te my church w'en he prefers Mr. Day's, the' Hi can't 'clp thinking,' he keeps hen, "as Mr. Day is very far wrong in some of his ccremeuics, witch IK 'epe nil nivcr be laid hup haginst Mm.' IK sees by this time as Mr. Bighter didn't want te get hinte no disturbance with the Hanglo-Cathelics, as Hi can't say Hi blames Mm, thre' knowing of two clergymen in Hingland as was at daggers' points, as Hi'm sure was dreadful te think of, haleng of one man as the first parson said belonged te Ms parish and the bother as wouldn't hallow of nethink of the kind, and Hi knows in my 'art as 'Opkins wouldn't listen te Mm. " Well, IK says withasighaslliceuldn't 'clp w'en Hi thinks of 'Opkins aud me a going te different chufchesas IK wouldn't a dreamed could 'ave 'appeucd thre' us coming te Deucaster and him as was se hoppescd te my going te the 'Oly Presence with Miss Carter as Hi wishes IK 'adn't nivcr gene with 'er the wishes arn't no geed w'en tlie 'arm is done, "you couldn't de no geed with 'Opkins it's mere than like, but te think of Mm a Hanglo-Cathelic a worshiping little boys in red and purple dresses makes me 'art-sick, Mr. Bighter," " The 'Oly Presence people deii't worship the little boys,'" "IK 'epe you don't think," he says a smiling a bit, as IK didn't' think was necessary."

President Geiven's Plan for Financial Keer. giifalzatien Condition of the Company. At a full meeting of the American com mittee of the Philadelphia & Reading railroad company, held in Philadelphia en Monday, every member being present, a plan for the relief of the company from its iinancial difficulties was presented by Mr. Gewen, the president of the company, and after examination was unanimously appievcdnnd lecemmcndcd by the com mittee for adoption by the company. The beard of managers of the company ap proved, and Mr. Gewen will be fully em powered te act under it. The plan in volves the payment of the Ueating debt by the issue pre rata te shaicheldcrs of de ferred income bends at SO per cent., which arc entitled te dividends up te ft per cent, out of the earnings only after the common shares have had fl per cent., and for further dividends te rank jtari passu with common shares. This reduces the fixed charges $000,000 per annum ; but, te insure a further re duction, Mr. Gewcn's plans involve t'ie issue of a new long-time or perpetual 5 per cent, funding mortgage issue of 150, 000,000, divided into two classes, A aud 1J, $73,000,000 each, class A having prior ity of lien and interest charge ever class B. Willi this issue it is prepascd by purchase or exchange te retire all present indebted ness and te acquire by purchase the secu rities of the companies owning the leased lines. It is estimated that $140,000,000 of the new issues will provide for all of this, the total interest en which would be $7, 000,000, as against fixed charges for in terest, sinking funds, aud rentals of $10, G.7T, 110.88, making an annual saving of $!!, G37,11C.88. Mr. Gewen does net ex pect te secure se large an annual reduction, owing te the impossibility of purchasing the higher securities, and te the appreciations of marked value of the lower eucs upon its being known that a fund is provided for the purchase, but he expects within the next year te accomplish a saving of at least 1 J per cent, en $100,000,000, making $1,500,000, and te save still further $000, 000 by the deferred issue, and $000,000 en the sinking funds, making au annual re duction of fixed charges of $2,700,000. An elaborate report upon the condition of the company was issued Monday by Mr. Gewen, embracing the above plan, and containing the statement that all the capital necessary te carry out the plan is offered him, and that he is about te visit Europe for the purpose of negotiat ing the issue. Mr. Gewcn's statement contained a condensed balance sheet of the railroad and coal and iron company, show ing assests of $50,000,000 in excess of lia bilities, and $16,000,000 in excess of debt and share capital. Thcse valuations, with the exception of the coal lands, estimated at $750 per acre, and the leased lines, val ued at $7,500,000, are stated te be from competent and careful valuators, and Mr. Gewen claims the estimates for coal lands and leased lines arc far below their real values. The net results of the preseut year's business show for both companies a cash surplus of $364,797.12, allowing for relief by the previous payment of $1,551, 441 in scrip. The report.centains an elab orate review of the values of coil land property and its importance te the railroad company, and concludes with a defense of the transportation department from the charge of extravagant management, show ing by a long table that with the excep tion of three ether companies, for the dif ference in which special reasons are given, the Reading railroad is the most econo mically worked read in the United States. The correspondence between 3Ir. Powell and the company and the report upon the coal lands by Mr. Harris are annexed te Mr. Gewcn's statement as an appendix.
