Mr. Brownlow of Tennessee has among his constituents an itinerant preacher who is not only an eloquent preacher, but, in his opinion, has a knowledge of the scriptures second to no one's. So confident is he that he can make clear the most obscure passages that he invariably asks his hearers to bring him any puzzling test they wish explained. At the close of a very large and successful meeting a country bumpkin sitting in the back of the hall in resaonse to the pas tor's invitation announced that there was a matter, a very im portant matter, he would like to have unraveled. Happy that an opportunity to show his erudition had come at last, the wise man encouraged the fellow to come to the front and present his problem. -'What I want to know is," said the bucolic, "whether Job's turkey was a hen or a gobbler.'' And when the preacher turned red and coughed, to hide his con fusion, his interrogator remark ed in a voice that was audible in the whole hall: 'Til be durned if I don't stump him the first time.'

'The speech made by Senator Vest at the trial of a dog case some years ago, and referred to in the Post one day recently, brings to mind a case in which the faithfulness, loyalty and love of a dog for his master was as strongly and pathetically por trayed," said a treasury official at a dinner one nigjit last week. "A man whom I had known from childhood and who occupied rirst place in my friendship, was taken ill and after months of long suffering died. His death was a blow from which I shall never entirely recover, and it is just this one thing above all others that poor old Dick, my friend's dog, and I hold in com mon. -'During my friend's illness I called at his home on my way to the office, and as soon as the working hours were over I was at his bedside again. Always I found Dick there, looking up in his master's face with his big, sad eyes. I patted the faithful fellow and told him it was all right, that his master was going to get well. He would wag his head and lick my hand in . reply. There he stayed and nothing could induce him to remain away very long. Night and day he lay there at the foot of the bed, keeping a faithful watch. -Jb'mally tne end came, l am a strong man, but I went into pieces. The sight of that, poor dumb brute would have torn a heart of iron, for no human be ing could have suffered more. During the preparations for put-. ting the body in the coffin they were forced to carry the dog out of the house and tie him. But it was not for long. Dick broke his rope, and quietly sneaked in to the house and again took up his watch, but this time under the coffin, and there he stayed, snapping at all who approached his master's body. When the pall-bearers were about to re move the casket it was I who saved the undertaker's life. It almost seemed that at last the strain had broken, and the poor dog's growls, which were more like groans, told his story. His attack upon the pall-bearers was violent, and for a moment I fear: ed the animal had gone mad, but the poor, fellow was crazed with grief. I -approached him and in the same manner as during his master's illness patted him and said it would be -all right." In this way I succeded m getting him out of the house, but. this scar on my hand, bears evidence of the struggle I had in7doing sa When -I reached the street the first thing my eye rested upon was the dog Dick under the hearse, and there he; remained in, a dull, sullen way, walking along- until the. .grave. was reached. .. --At. the- grave he was. in a fishtim .mood .no longer- He seemed to understand in his mute way that it must happen.

GOT JUST WHATr JV THEY WANTED. - Many Maine people who live in a certain part of Qumberland county will well remember one -Abner" so he was- always called in his town. Abner was the wit of the village and he was commonly selected to take charge of funerals, because he was about the only man in town who had never amounted to much,, .who was never, positively wick ed because that would have re quired more of an effort than he was. willing to make. He was, however, far enough from being a good citizen, and Abner knew it as well as anybody else. Abner was requested to ask a certain minister to conduct the services, and he hitched up hia horse and drove to is-Qu-?e. FIDELITY OF- The minister said he would at tend and then tried to get a little information concerning the late lamented. -'What sort of a man was he?" he asked. "Well, about the same as no sort of a man at all," replied Abner, frankly. "I suppose his loss will be deeply felt in the community?" said the minister. "They're all bearing up well under it," said Abner, slowly. "Was he a Christian?" asked the minister. "If he'd been accused of it, the verdict would have been not guilty, and the jury wouldn't have left their seats," replied Abner, cheerfully. "Did he attend church?" ask ed the minister a bit anxiously. I never heard of his doing it," said Abner. "How did he die?" continued the minister. "Just the same as her.lived sort of naturally," said-Abner. -t "I don't see how I'm to preach: much of a sermon under suchj niwiiimstonnoc " cowl Ii cx minic. "The neighbors all said, they didn't think they wanted much of a sermon, and so they sent rose over to see you," said Abner. ine minister pocneiei. nis- VV . II.

Its weather bureau gave notice of the ap proach of a disastrous frost and the orchardists, following direc tions previously published by the department, prevented serious injury by the use of smudges. To some extent, sections of the department of agriculture are like fire departments. Their chief end is watchfulness under ordinary circumstances.-but in an emergency similar to the re cent outbreak of foot and mouth disease they demonstrate their real value. .
