"Except y abide in the Yin" Jesus.
From the Infinite kingdom of love,
A cress tbe sweet Irittol the blest,
Where the sn and unselfish In heart
Abide Hi the shadowless ntX,
Steals over tiie lyre of my soul
A strain of this poem divine,
"Ye cannot bear fruit In yourselves.
Except ye abide la the Tine."
I list to the chime of the bells
That calls the believer to 'prayer.
As Its story of worship a lells
To the treianloos horde of the sir,
While the wail oi ilietoennged. and oppressed
Breaks Into each wave of Its time.
And I ask if Ibe flttob of to-dar
!sa branch of this love-throbbing vine;
The vine that forever shall lire
That abeliers the weary and worn
That eomtorVaad nimnor doth give
To thedesBlats-hmrtfd and shore;
That, sweeter than breath of the flowers,
And warmer than heart of the wine,
Reveals, by Us life-giving powers,
How folly It feeds on the vine.
I see the prond teacher upraise
His bands to the Father above,
In prayerful and reverent praise
For His chanaeless and measureless love;
The love" that la known fcjtfssehra
Of oneness forever with God,
Through sympathy faithful and kind
"With all who are bowed neatn the rod.
I bear Urn Imploring; God's grace
On the lame and the halt and the blind.
While I see in his temple" no place
Kot- fh Is Sorrowing class -of mankind.
"Ye must love one another," he reads
From the words of the Teacher divine,
While givtngno proof In bis deeds
That his lire Is a branch of the viae.
And I torn to the triumphing throne,
Who glory in freedom (?) of thought,
' And claim, both In lode and sons;,
That hourly by angels they're taught.
To see if one blossom has HUM
To a semblance of fruitage divine,
Whence Into their lives Is dlttlll'd
Love's magical warmth of the vine
Trie neetarlmmorfavl that bears
The soul to that heavenly plane.
Where hating, andfricUooal cares.
And strivings that torture and pain.
Roll back in the light of the law
As night when the morning doth shine.
Unto ripeness and sweetness to draw
Each blossom and bud of the vine.
And I pray that the kingdom may come
That bearaUi the harvests of love;
That Its work In our earth-lives be done
As it Is in the b saves above;
TBI I can man's errors forgive,
, As I would that he forgive mine,

A number of members of tbe Assem
bly were in Assemblyman Wren's par
lor, a few evenings ago, ami tbe conver
sation turned upon tbe law respecting
tbe carrying of eoucealeU weapons. As
semblymen Lindsay and gbanley and
others expressed various opinions about
the law, but 31 r. wren ealtl nothing.
He sat quietly smoking a briervrood
pipe and listening to all that bis col
leagues bad to say. At length Mr.
Lindsay asked him what lie thought of
tbe law, and wbetber it bad done very
much to prevent tbe carrying of con
cealed weapons in New York.
"Well, I've bad my lesson," said Mr.
"Wrau , "and It was one tbat taugbtme
tbe danger of carrying weapons. I bad
my. band on my pistol to sboot John
WJtkes Booth once, and I wish I bad,
for I draw on bim on tbe morning of the
very day tbat be assassinated Lincoln."
Tberewas no further talk about cou--cSdled.
weapons. Tbe Assemblymen
were anxious to learu more of tbe lnci
deut tbat Mr. Wren referred to.
'DW you know Booth t" asked Mr.
"Intimately. I had acted with bim a
season in Richmond, and been on tbe
southern circuit several times with bim.
I' bave slept with Booth many and
many a time, and there ws no oihTo'
my friend' that was better liked."
Mr. Wren, being urged to relate l!i.
incident, began: . .
"WHen'Hiud served my time in the
army and got my discharge, I made an
engagement with Mr. G rover, who than
bad one of the Washington theaters un
der lease. There were quite a number
fit my old friends In Washington, actors
who were welt known, at least to tbe
profession. There were Jim McCullom,
Sa m 'Uliesler, John Jennings, Sam Ver
ney, and others, and we used to meet
socially every Sunday night. Some
times Wilkes Booth would join us. He
would frequently tell us, when we asked
mm where he'd been so long Jor we
would not bim around sometimes
for days, and then he would suddenly
appear that ha bad been taking horse
beefe rides. He used to argue with us
on the merits of tbe Southern cause.
"On tbe afternoon tbat tbe Mariue
band -serenaded Lincoln when be re
" tdrifed from bisvisit toltieumond, Sam
Vernay, Jennings and myself went to
tbe White House, and on our return
went- to the office of C. D. Hi, who
was manager or Mr. Grover. We were
playlBte Aladdin' at Drover's, and
Miss Blue Germon was leading laJv.
She was In Mr. Hess's ofnee with the
etbars, If I remember right. At all
events, Booth came in and greatly in
terrupted us with bis violent secession
talk. I tblnk this was on tbe Wednes
day before the assassination. Bdolb
asked Mr. Hess at tbat time, too, when
President Lincoln was goiBg to the the
ater to see 'Aladdin,1 for tbe President
bad been invited to be present, and bad
promised to do so.
"Tbe next day a number of us, after
rehearsal, were standing In front of G ro
ver's, and afterward we went Into the
lobby of the theater. As I now reniern-bert'tlleret-wefe
Mr. C II. Hess, Mr.
Verneyfr. Jennings, and one or two
other gentlemen. Booth came saunter
ing in. My impression was that lie bad
been drinking. He began at once to
talk about the war. - We sJluVt 'pay

had boatu vciy touch of it, but be

"IJlie next morning, which was tbe
dayjif the assassination, I went around
to Iford'a theater to see Miss Laura
Keene, and, passing down tbe front
lobby, surmostnc that a rehearsal was
In progress, I saw H. Clay Ford and
also Booth, who turned toward me, and,
as I supposed, made a movement to
carry bis threat Into execution. I bad

was singing 'Sherman Has Marched to

uext morning, looking for bim, for we

went to I he gunboat and saw Booth's
body. It was the poor fellow, fast
enough. I have been inclined of lato
years, as I have recalled his wild and
unreasonable manner ail that Winter,
to have charity enough for Booth to be
lieve tbat his mind was deranged.
"jrrom that day to tuts," continued
Mr. Wren, as he refilled his pipe, "I
bave not carried weapons, though I used
to wish I had shot Booth. If everybody
had the experience I have bad, there
would be no need for an; law on the
matter." Albany Correspondence AT. 1'.
A Woman's Opinion of a Lawyer,
It was a sad thing for Lottie Davis

avenue abode vesterdav. IVIorsnn
Xnapp, of kindred tint, came, it is al
leged, as a Intel in the night and carried
oil the raiment, part aud narcel. At
all events, an salute uoliceman arrested
him for the oBense, and he went to the
Jenereon Market 1'ollee Court yesterday
prepared to maintain his innocence by
counsel. Lelt'.e was there too. and. iu
spite of numerous trying Interruptions
from counsel, she got to tbe point In
her narrative when she discovered Peter
son longingly eyeing tbe clothes as
she hung tbem out.
"DM braeK nigger," she said, ur
gently apostropblilng tbe prisouer, "he
stood dar wlf an ole clay pipe shoved
whar it ud do de moas good, an' he
poftlt' as if he'd like to split. But de
way be looked at tie in clothes wag quite
'nuff to show any reasonable puseou dat
dey wa'nt safe."
"Come, witness," quoth counsel, sar
castically, "tell us just what kiud of a
look that is?"
"Oh, you git out," was the s.iappUh
"I Insist on the question : How did
tbe prisoner look to convey tbe impres
sion that the clothes were In danger?"
Witness wa ready with another (art
reply, but his Honor said:
"Come, yon must answer ; bow did
Tbe witness looked puzzled.
'.'Did he look," asked hit Hnnor
dancing around for a simile, "did he
lo.-k.llke like cotinaei, for instance?"
"Ob, 'deed, no, sab," replied the wit
ness. "If he lookde least bit like dat
gem man, dere wouldn't be no robbery
Ah," wild the flittered enunsel,
"bow's that ?"
"I'd made odder arraueemeuls."
"Indeed," lie nontiuued, smiling;
"what might they have been?"
"Wliv. if ho looked stall lika vou

How to Stop a Paper. The follow
ing from one of our exchanges so clearly
expresses our view upon the subject
llmt we copy without comment : "Vou
have an undoubted right to stop a news
paper upon payment of all arrearages.
l)o not hesitate to do so on account of
any tenderness of feellog for tbe editor.
Don't yon suppose be would stop buying
sugar if he was not getting bis mouey's
worth? And when you discontinue
your taper do so manfully. Don't
throw it back to the postmaster and
have him write 'refused' on tbe mar
gin and send it back to the editor. No
gentleman ever stops his paper tbat
way. If you do not want tbe paper any
longer, write a note to him or speak lo
lilra and say what you mean. This Is
the way a newspaper should be stopped."

Chicago some of tbe best business lots were
once traded lor a pair of old boots. - How often
is tbe remark made by old residents of Port

wise to "despise lite day of small things."

By reference to the "Orego ian" of Fi Ini-iry

vanced twenty-five per cent during tbe past

rise Is wholly attributable to tbe lucreasing
immigration and the growing confidence in

and the development of oar many natural re
