The young member of the Reming ton family were in New York on one of their semi-annual visits. They had been there nearly two weeks, ami were now finishing the last odds and ends of shopping and sight-seeing on this delightful Oct jlier afternoon, prepara tory to leaving for home the next day. They were walking slowly along Sixth avenue, searching for a certain place where hot-poker drawing mate rials were sold, and had paused in front of the right number in the crowded street for they found that the sales room was on the second floor of the building. "Don't go up with me," said liess, the eldest of the three. "If you M ill wait here I shall be back directly I oh, look there ! See that man? What is he trying to do?" Jack and Fan turned just in time to see a man a young Italian of delicate appearance reach up his hand to feel the texture of a heavy wool jacket that hung, exposed for sale, from a line stretched across the sidewalk above his head. After he had apparently satis fied his curiosity as to thequality of the garment, he attempted to let it go, but as Jack expressed what followed it slipped its mooring, and fell plump upon his head and shoulders. His actions showed plainly that he feared some one would suspect that he was trying to the steal jacket, and after several unsuccessful attempts to replace it, he stood bewildered, still holding it iu his hands. "Why doesn't ln drop it?" exclaim ed Jack, iniiatient!y. "The goose ! They will Ik? out like bees from a hive if tin y see hint holding it like that." They all stood for an instant watch ing him, then, as he started toward the door of the shop, w ith the evident in tention of taking it inside, Hess went on up the stair-ease, leaving Jack and Fan in the street. "Awkward situation for the fellow," added Jack, as the Italian again (mus ed, confused as to which shop the jack et U-longed. "IVrhajw he can't speak English, either." As Jack uttered these words, out from the shop rushed two clerks ami a brawny porter ; and before the unfor tunate man could realize what had happened, he found himself held fast by the arms. A crowd of people quick ly collected ; among th-m a policeman, who unceremoniously elbowed his way up to the group, and exclaimed gruffly: "Ah, ha, my fine feller! We've caught you at last ! You weren't quick enough this time, you see. Come along now, you dago !" The foreigner, unable tospeak a word of English, or to explain the situation, stood gesticulating wildly almost frant icw itli distress, still holding the gar ment in his hands. "Oh, Jack !" whispered Fan, in a distressed voice, "we ought to go to his rescue, but then if we do, we shall get into such a snarl ! lless will never for give us if we let him lie arrested, but oh, dear! Let's go away. I don't want to lie mixed up in a street brawL" "Nor I," said Jack. "We're timed to leave the city to-morrow, and how cm we liother alwut this matter? Too bad for the fellow, but we can't stop over to apjiear as witnesses. He will explain it all when he finds an inter preter, and get himself out of the scrape sMtie way. You can see that the ottlcer is set upon arresting him, and if we in terfere we may have to stay here sever al days before he will Ik? tried. That we can't do. Oh, he must take his chances, like the rest of us that's all !" So, together, they slowly mounted the long staircase to wait in the hall until Hess should reappear. Fifteen minutes went by before she joined them, and by that time the slight rip ple of excitement which for a few mo ments had disturlK.il the every-day bustle of the street U'low, had entirely subsided, leaving no trace visible. Jack and Fan breathed more freely when they had passed the shop, for Hess, whose mind was just then full of other thoughts, made no allusion to the incident; and they both hoped, to their unpoken reiief, that she had tpuite for gotten it. Indeed, it wa not until the three were in there rooms that evening busi ly packing their trunks with their new purchases, that Hess said suddenly : "Why, there! I intended to ask you if any harm came to that Italian after I went up stairs. Did he take the coat in, all right?" Jack and Fan were silent, Hess look ed up in surprise. "Did he get into any trouble?" she asked, speaking a little sharply, and rising as she spoke. Jack sprung from the big rocking chair in which he had been loungiug lazily watching his sisters, and walked to the window, his back turned, to look out upin the moonlit street. "What if he did?" he muttered, sulkily, childishly resenting liess's un intentional abruptness. "I really don't know that we are responsible to you or to anyone else if anything happen ed to him." "To your own conscience and sense of humanity, if you allow that inno cent man to be arrested without inter set ESTABLISHED 1827. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1895. fering to help him. Tell me about it, please." Hess went to her brother, and put both hands caressingly upon his shoulders. "Tell me, please, I'm sorry I spoke so sharply, but it was such a surprise. That was the reason. We are too good friends, brother mine, aren't we, now, to let anything like that cont between us?" "Go ahead, Fan ; if you like," said Jack, only half mollified. "We may as well be hanged for a sheep as a Iamb. Tell her the whole story." Hess listened quietly to the account, and then turned again to her brother. "Will you go down," she said "with me to that shop to-night to find out where he was taken? It seems tome as though we ought to go at once." "Why, yes," said Jack, leaving his post at the window, and entering into the affair with more interest at the prospect f a tour of discovery. "That's an idea! Suppose we asked Mr. Dart mouth to go with us !" "Hest suggestion of all !" exclaimed Hess, "Will you ask him? He is in his room, I think, and I feel quite sure that he will go, for he Is always ready to do a good turn, and he speaks Ital ian like a native." Jack left the room in search of Mr. Dartmouth, who was an elderly law yer, an intimate friend of the Iteming ton family, and whose home was in the boardrtig-house in which they were staying. It was some time before Jack returned, but finally a rap at their door announced that he had come. "He'll go !" he cried, as he entered the room. "Come on ; he's downstairs in the hall, waiting." An hour later, Mr. Dartmouth and his young friends descended from the elevated road in the vicinity of the af ternoon's adventure, and weut direct ly to the street where the incident had happened. The shop was closed, but to their great relief, they met, almost upon the very spot, a huge policeman, sauutering idly along, jauntily swing ing his club as he walked. Mr. Dartmouth told him of the oc currence, and of the hope they had of being able, through him, to learn where the man hud been taken. The officer listened iu silence thoughtfully tap ping his white-gloved hands together. "I believe I knows the felly, sir. I seen number two hundred an' wan a turnin' in of a Oytalian. Thrythe station beyaut, sir the wan wid the horses stan'in' forenist. It moight be he's down there." Thanking him for the possible clue, they hurried along to the building "foreninst the horses." Ascending the broad granite steps, they entered a long hall, which echoed noisily with the heavy tread of a squad of police, who, marching two by two under the leadership of a superior in rank, were just starting out, soon to separate, each for his nightly beat. At an oen door, which led into a large room, where a number of off-duty men were lounging about, they inquir ed the way to the main office, and were directed to the end of the hall. Here they found a large room, with two heavily barred windows in the rear. It was divided by a partition of heavy wire netting into two parts, the part I ack of the partition U-ing used as the sergeant's public office. In the netting were two openings, one giving ait-ess to a desk, the other to a large door, now closed, through which all must pass, if they wished to reach the inner office. The young people shrunk instinct ively as they caught sight of dozens of heavy steel fetters and hand-cuffs hanging upon hooks screwed into the yellow-tinted wall, but the pleasant face of the sergeant, as he politely turn ed to inquire their business, partly re stored their courage. "Oh!" whispered Fun. drawing close to Hess. "Isn't this dreadful ! I feel as though I had been doing something wrong myself, and were going to be put into prison." "Just think -of that ioor man !" whispered her sister in answer. The sergeant listened to their story, and then turned to a subordinate, who stood near, saying : "Hrown, let these visitors have a look at that Italian. Tiie one that was brought in by Kerry for coat -stealing. It's the little man the one that cried so hard." Hrown came forward, and threw hack the wire-screen gate-way. He then took a key from a hook and in serted it into the iock of an enormously heavy iron door, thickly studded with big steel bolts. This second disr led into the waiting-r.K.in, where the pris oners arrested during the day was con fined until they were brought out for trial and conviction or release, as the case might be. As they descended the cold stone steps the girls could hardly resist the impulse to turn and run away from the place ; but the door was now locked liehind them, and, for the time lieiug, the- were as closely imprisoned as were the poor wretches who lay about upon the hard floor, or were stretched un comfortably upon tho wide bench built along one side of the apartment. "This way, please," said the ((olice man, threading his way among the prisoners. "We had to put him into a cage by himself, he got so wild. There was a fellow here who could talk his lingo, and he says the man swears he's innocent but, sir they're all that !" At one end of the room was a row of cells, or cages, made of heavy iron bars. As the officer paused, a low moaning was heard very faint now, as though the human heart, from which it was wrung, was quite worn out with an guish. In one corner was a dark heap, but it remained motionless, until a sharp command caused a movement. The officer snapped his fingers, and the figure arose, aud came slowly tow ards the visitors. The full glare from a gas-jet fell -upon his face, and Bess and Jack and Fan instantly recognized the Italian. He looked listlessly at them until Mr. Dartmouth spoke a few words in his native tongue then the change was startling. With a loud cry of joy, almost fierce In its intensity, the pris oner clung to the iron bars, chattering a stream of Italian to his newly-found friend. Tae girls could see that Mr. Dart mouth was explaining to him their connection with his misfortunes, and as his quick, excitable brain grasped the situation, he seemed quite in dan ger of losing his wits over the unex pected hop3 of rescje. He thru-it h tli arms between the bars, the slender i brown flngis trembling convulsively I as he attempted to seize the hands of his benefactors in his delirious joy. Then, as they drew back beyond his reach, at the advice of the officer, he stood for an instant motionless as a statue then fell unconscious upon the floor of the cell. "Oh, Fan !" gasped Hess, as the tears poured down her face, so unaccustom ed was she to human suffering ; "all this might might have lieen avoided !" "Don't, Hess, don't ! I can't, forgive myself. Come, let's go away," cried Fan. "Hotter take the visitors back to the office, sir," said the policeman, as he dashed a jug of cold water through the bars upon the prostrate figure. "These are not lit sights for them." Mr. Dartmouth escorted them back to the main office, leaving the two girls under the care of the sergeant, and then, with Jack, he returned to see what could lie done for the unfortunate man. "Don't be alarmed ladies," said the sergeant, as he placed chairs for them ; "he'll come around all right, for it takes more than a little thing like this to kill one of those fellows. He will be released to-morrow, just asfroonas we can hear from the shop-keeper. If you can satisfy them that he is not guilty, they won't Isither to push the case any further." After an early breakfast the follow ing morning the Hemingtons and Mr. Dartmouth started for the scene of the preceding day's experience. As they topped in front of the shop where that unconscious cause of so much misery the woolen jacket again swung idly from the cord, Mr. Dartmouth glanced quickly at the sign that lxre the firm's name. " 'D.K ppelschlager A Krshalpf,' " he said. "Oh, we'll not have any trouble here ! These men were clients of mine in my former law-practicing days. I once won an important suit for them utid they are my friends, of course. Come ! We'll go in at once." At that early hour for it was only 1 o'clock, there were but a few customers in the shop, and the proprietors came quickly forward to greet Mr. Dart mouth, whom they instantly recogniz ed, with true German effusion. He returned their salutations with all courtesy, and then stated the business on which he and his friends had come. At the reference to the supposed thief, the face of Mr. Docppelschlager chang ed noticeably. "Ishodebe onhabby," he said, "to make dese young ladees any anxshus ness, bote we haf bin iikkh-Ii tried a long time mit dose stealers. Dey dakes all tings, utid we not able to ku l.-li dem ontil yes'd'y. Is dese ladees all sure dise feller no stealer?" "They can swear to it," replied Mr. Dartmouth with decision, "and their brother was another witness. You have the jacket so that there hastieeii no loss to you. It was a case of cir cumstantial evidence. I have talked with the man, aud I lulieve him to be innocent. Very likely there are many sneak-thieves about here, but, gentle men, I am willing to be resp insible for this man. Will you let him go?" "Mr. DieppelschlagiT and his part ner exchanged glances. "So?" said Mr.DK'pH'IschIager. "S," replied Mr. Krshalpf. They then turned with smiling faces to the girls. "He shall g mit you! they exclaim ed. "We shall haf Mister Abratnsdake a brief a letter dese moments und der boliceman will let him go w'eryou weesh." The girls were so overjoyed at the success of their visit that they thanked the two fat Germans with tears in their eyes, and soon after, with the addition of Mr. Abrams to their numlier, they hastened to the police station. They went up to the desk and pre sented the letter to the sergeant, who smiled cordially when he saw the re sults of their efforts. "That's capital," he said, "for it saves delay. Hrown, get that Italian, and briug hint here. The prosecution is withdrawn, and he is at liberty. Hess and Fan awaited with breath less eagerness the return of the officer, and even Mr. Dartmouth, accustomed as he had been, in days gone by, to hu man misery iu every form, shared their interest. Presently the policeman and the Italian entered the main office. The latter looked as though he were daed by his suddeu release. Then, as he gradually understood that he was again at lilterty to go when and where he liked, he fell to weeping as helplessly as any sensitive woman. "(Juecr now, how that fellow's eyes run," meditated the sergeant aloud. "IVrhaps he may not be a common lot, after all. Guess he's down on his luck, as they say." At that moment several other prison ers were brought in, and Mr. Dart mouth and his companions, bidding the sergeant and Mr. Abrams g.xxi morning, left the station-house, follow ed by the now happy Italian. It turned out that the young man was a wood-carver, and Mr. Dart mouth, having obtained his address, promised to get him a place he knew of. "I say, Bess," said Jack, shortly after their train had left the station, "I'm w fully ashamed of the way I treated that Italian yesterday. If I had sp.ikeu at the time, he'd have been saved the night iu the station-house." "Oh, never mind, Jack," answered Bess, with a smile, "it's all right now. Besides, Mr. Dartmouth is going to be his friend, and that wouldn't have hap pened, you know, if the poor fellow had not been arrested. It's strange how things turn out, isn't it ?"

It had lieen a hot day ; the sun ha 1 beaten down on the hard highway, the parched pasture and the dry and dusty stubble field with unrelenting forcv ; the cattle, since early in the forenoon, had Uen lying in the shade, or stand ing iu the little ools of water all that was left of the brook that usually ran through the pasture and standing there, placidly switched their tails and contentedly munched their everlasting cuds, seemingly as happy as tlnMigh the pasture was knee deep with fresh, dew Itespriukled clover. In the stubble field adjoining there were no such signs of contentment. All day long, while the sun was the hottest and fiercest, men and teams had hurried from the 11 I I to the barn and hat-k again, going in with w.i:n piled high with the sheaves of grain, and coming Iwk empty, save as to the lioy or man who drove the horses. It was the last day of "wheat haul ing," and 'Siairs? Stevens was anxious that the crop should lie housed, to Is? threshed at his leisure. It was nearly sundown, and theiii tense heat of the day was s'iiut-wh.-tt abated. Not until then did I venture far from the low, rambling house that seemed to retire in the shade of the great elms that towered above it and rind my way down the little, grass grown lane toward the great barn. The last load was entering the barn yard, and the 'Squire, with his big straw hat pushed back and with pitch fork in hand, walked with a tired, but satisfied tread behind the wagon. lie stopped when he saw nie and chnffingly said : "Well, Missy, you come along to help when the sun goes down, do you, and the last load is in?" "Oh, no," I replied, "I didn't know you needed help, or I should have been lu re before." The 'Sjuire laughed. "Lots of account you'd lie in the har vest field, now, wouldn't you? Hut I can tell you that my sisters used to turn out with a hearty will and help when the work was pushed. Yes sir ; father used to say that Cynthia was the l"st son he lind." "Hut, 'Squire," I put in, "you would not allow your daughter to go into the harvest field and help haul grain, now would you ?', "Allow? Why, bless your heart, I couldn't drag her there with a four horse team. Not that I want to," he added after a pause, "for times have changed, and there aiu't the necessity for it now." I burst into a laugh to think of Don thy Stevens in the harvest field ; the daintiest little maid in all the country round, with a proud little will of her own, and yet a lovable disposition. She was the apple of her father's eye, and many staid old neighbors considered her a spoiled daughter. While we spoke she came bounding into the yard on her saddle horse, and with a nol to me, she turned to the 'Squire. "Well, Pop, how's the wheat? Do we go to Europe this winter? Have you reaped what you sowed?" "Folks usually do," said the 'Squire, as lie lie!Hil her dismount. "Well, yes," replied Dirothy, "unless the crop fails, yoj k:i w, and I lielicve that happens swnetitn s. Da you know," she rattled on, talking to neith er of us in p irtic tlar, "I've Ut-n think ing of that very thing to-day. It is promised that whatsoever a man sows that shall he reap ; but it stems to me that holds good n:ore especially with Wiiils than it does with a good crop. I know Pop here fusses around a sight about his seed wheat and his seed corn, and then the crops fail some times, while if a little bit of 'cheat' gets hit the wheat once it lasts for years. And I guess it's pretty much the same way with sowing other tilings good deeds, you know, and all that." "Dorothy," said the 'Squire, "you're getting to be a regular pessimist. Let's go to supper and see if a good square meal will do you gx.l." And we all went into the house. "I think, Dorothy," said the 'Squire, as we sat at the supper table, "that you expect the harvest of a g. d crop tiK sixin. You musii't cut your wheat be fore it is ripe'" "Oil, I daa't think s," stid Diro thy, from her place at the head of the table. "I see a great many fields where a harvest of any sort seems imp sib!e. I came past the II tzard place this af ternoon, and if you'll believe it, there was Abliy herself out in the wheat field, with that boy that lives there, getting in the wheat." The 'Squire Io.iked at his plate, mut tering something ahut being a great shame. "That's just what I thviit and said," continued Dorothy. "1 tild her it was not right for her to be doing such drudgery, and reminded her that men were intended to do that kind of work. Hut she only said : " 'For men must work and women must weep, and then added, 'Well, Dorothy, I prefer to do a little more work aud a little less weeping for my part,' and went on to.vsing the sheaves up on the wagon. Now, what I want to know is, when is Abby Hazard going to reap her re ward? There she has been toiling away on that little farm ever since I can re-memta-r, kind, faithful and intelligent, doing more ginxl to this neighborhood than half the men put together; and yet her life becomes harder every year. Where's her harvest?" There was a curious lisik on the 'Spaire's face as lie said: "She might have had a harvest years ago if she would only cut the grain when it ripens." Dorothy looked at him as though she did not understand, but he seemed to have nothing more to say, and after a time she asked: "Why has she always lived there alone?" "Because she's a very foolish wo man." the 'Suuire blurted out. "Be cause she's the salt of the earth, that's why. You see," he continued in a calmer tone, "the Hazard farm was left to her and her worthless brother on oimtitiiiii that one of them live oil it. ' If they both leave it it goes to some sort of a missionary society. Dick lOo WHOLE NO. 2307. I always was a wild chap, and he's never been here since his grandfather's death, leaving the care of the place, and more than that, on Abliy's shoulders, for he was always giving notes to pay his debts, and when they fell due Ab'iy j paid them. That's why Abby works like a slave, and that's why she never harvested her reward." The 'S pi ire stirred his tea in an al sent minded way. Filially Dorothy said, "But Ii-k's dead now." "Ye-i, but his debts are' lit jiaid, and Abby hasn't learned any sense." "Why don't some good man marry her? She'd make an excellent wife." The 'Squire started. "IXyou think so, Dorothy?" " Yts I l ," she rep'.ie I. "Sh - s the most intelligent woman in th-e town ship, and when she's rested she's really handsome." "Er er what kind of a a mother do you think she'd make, Iorothy?" The 'Squire's face was very red and he iiervoti-.lv lingered his knife and fork. Dorothy looked at him in amazement for a moment and then burst into a hearty laugh. "Why, you dear old Pop!" she cried, leaving her place and throwing her arms around his n -ck, "who would have thought it! You of all men!" And then site smothered him with kisses and laughed and cried, while the 'Squire looked foolish, and I felt sally out of place. "Well, well, daughter," said the 'Squire, "we won't think of it, if you object; we" "B it, Pop, I don't object," cried Dorothy. "I think it'd b just just great! I'm sure she deserves asg-xsl a man as you are, and you you deserve some one to take care of you U-tterthan your hcighty Mighty daughter can." The 'Squire was on his feet in an in stant. "Will you come with me to Abby's?" he said, his eyes shining. "You see, for years I've wanted Abby to come here, but as long as Dick lived she thought she ought to keep the place for him, and since h:s death she's Uvn afraid that that it would s-eli likt like pushing you out, Dirothy." "Tne idea!" exclaimed Drothy, "and you let her think it! You're a couple of dear old gece, that's what you are!" By this time she had her father's best hat out and her own on h r head. aud excusing theui-clve to m they went to tell Abby that her harvest was at la-t ripe. A Philadelphia Lawyer. Over in Philadelphia dwelt a young law student ho fi ll in love just as he was alxmt to ! admitted to practice.

I have had the case four years, but now I turn it over to you. Here are the papers; see what you can do." Ttie young man took the papers and went to work with a vim born of love for if he won the case would he not also win a bride? At la-t life seemed to him worth living. He studied the case thoroughly. 1 le consulted the authori ties and was beaded and prime 1 fr a briliiarit argument when tiie court con vened. He made his p!ea and wo:i the case without any trouble. Wit ii a heart overil iwing with joy, lie returned to his prospective father-in-law and, slapping down the piqicrs, he exclaimed: "See here, sir; the case Is won! These are the pnxifs. What you tried for years to do I hu.e accomplished at a single term of court. Now, may I have your daughter?" Tiie old fellow 1 xked up with a smile on his face as he replied: "I think you a fixol and j"oti can't have my daughter. But I will just give you a little gratuitous advice: It is true I had the case four year without winning it, and it is also true that I made thousands of d llars out of it.

S nine of tiie stories told are worth re peating. At a re. -e nt scs-ion held in the cafe of the Hota! Brunswick there was a full attendance. The man who wore the iii'-d tl was at ort'e timea judge of the I'nited States Fed-ral Court and a noted traveler. He was telling a st ry as follow-.: "S :ne tix le ago I was traveling in S mi th Ameriea. I stopped at a hotel in one of the inland cities, and as I wanted to rise early I asked the land lord to have me wakened at H o'clock in the morning. I asked him if he had an alarm clock. He .-tartled me by saying that be did no;, but that be had a lot of rattlesnakes trained t wakejxeople. All you had to do was to lie down and at the designate" I hour the snake let Iixise his rattle and kept it up until you wakened. It struck me as an xld arrangement, but I said that if it was all right I would stand it. Accordingly, he put a snake in my rom, and after the newness of the Using wore oil' I fell a-!is p. I was wakened about ." o'clock by a great racket iu the room. Through the dim light I could make out a struggle that was taking plav in ti'e- rxm, but I could oniy discern one man. When I made the situation out clearly I found that a native thief bad entered my rtK-m. The snake had immediately oiled itself around his throat and was slowly strangling him, while it violent ly rang its rattle for the isdice." A dead silence settled over the little group. None but a brave man wotiM have ventured to open his m uth aft r that. Then? was one, however, that did d ire au 1 his u-.rr-.tive was as fel lows; "Two years ago when I vi.-ited my home on the farm ill Vermont I drop ped my gold watch and chain on the gra-s. Before I bad time to pick it up a c:i!f playing in the yard licked it up and su allowed it. La-t week I was home again and the calf, now grown to a cow, was to be killed. I had a gai lge against it fr the loss of ir.y h mds ime gold wateh and went out t see the execution. In cutting up the cow, after the killing, the watch was found. Imagine my surprise when I found that it was perfectly intact, running all ri.glit and correct within a few seconds. An investigation revealed the fact that in swallow irg the watch the animal had allowed it to Ui-ome fastened U-tween its lungs. It was si ilxed that each time the animal breathed, the watch being a stem win. It r, the knob got a twitch aud this kept it continually wound, while the natural grease from the animal kept it well oiled and preserved." There was another dead silence. Then slowly the ju lge uupi.ined the medal from his breast and without a word handed it to the la-t speaker. .V c Y'trk Tritnin: The Prejcribai Limit. The other day we were somewhat startlsl to read iu a morning paper an application by a church for a pastor, ac.-oiiiputiied by the statement that no man is wanted p.ist 4.. We have l-eeii aware for some time that this is an age when the young man comes to the front, but we must admit that we were unprepared for such a frank avowal by a congregation that, in other words, a ni m who has reached -M lias attained his zenith of usefulness in the pulpit. Is it true, then, that a g'.x many of us who imagine ourselves on this side of the prime of life, have begun to descend the hill? Let us look at the matter for a minute. It certainly is one iu which we are individually inter ested. How many business men of your acquaintance achieved their suc cess under 4 years? Think of the emi nent physicians, lawyers and states men. We are inclined lo think that in a majority of cases they were con siderably older than 4 ) lx-fore they had learned the secrets which enabled them to accomplish w hat they did. S ip po.se Bismarck, Gladstone and thous ands of others who t --day are doing noble work in their old age had retired at 4 ! It is not for us to write about such matters, but each of our read -rs will be able to recall striking illustra tions of what we mean. It is all well enough for the younger generation t keep pushing, and we are glad to see it, but it is our opinion that this world in general and the shine trade in par ticular, would le in a sail plight with out the assistance and sage counsel of men who are past the limit prescriU-d by this congregation.
