'adn't never no cause, but meu is that
strange sometimes as a hangel from 'eaven
would find it 'aid work te please 'em.
Wen 'Opkins gets 'eme, as wasn't for

he wouldn't say nethiuk till Hi did, thre'
knowing as it would hcxasperate me, and
me as was dyini: like te knew 'ew he liked

wasn't no himpertaucc te mc and gees te
talking habeut Saint Jonathan's and Mr.
Bightcr's sermon quite free and heasy like,
but it makes no hitnprcssien en 'Opkins
as might a bean a stone himage for all he

mind te shake Mm, and he a looking at me
in a way as was most aggrawating te be bo
'e!d. Hewivcr, Sunday gees by and with the
rest of the week haftcr it that rapid thre'

asceuldu't be left te "ersclf one minute,
thre' niver knowing what 'arm she'd de
nest, and mc hup te my heyes in 'et
water and sugar as was a himpositien te
be sold. Hi was that worried as it was Sun
day once mere hafere Hi fairly knewed
whcie Hi was.
Says 'Opkins, that meiming as was at
breakfast witch we 'ad cofTee aud rolls,
thre' Mm thinking as he ceuld't nivcr de
without "cm en Sundays, and Mm that bil
ious as heftens Hi says te Mm was Iho
ceft'ee and nethink helsc, "Come haleng
with me, Mary lass, le the Church of the
'Oly I'icsenec, this morning," he says.
. Fer 'all' a minute Hi leeks at Mm in
""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
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
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
" 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
"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
" '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,

wouldn't listen te Mm.

The Reading Railroad.
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.
