Rather Dubious.?An Ohio fanner who in some way got hold of $500 stock of the "Ohio River Improvement Company," made a journey to Cincinnati and consulted a bank as to the face value of the stock. "Well, replied the banker, as he looked the musty paper over, "I used to be the president of that company myself, and I can tell you all about it." "Then I've struck the right man. Go ahead." "We organized on a capital of ten millions, and paid in about a hundred dollars. We wanted the stock one-half on that, paid $25 for circulars, as much more for desk room, and I used $20 more on a trip to Louisville on business. The remainder of the money was embezzled by our treasurer, who afterwards died in South America." "Then these bonds ain't worth nothing V" "Well, I'd hold on to 'em. In case you ever go to South America and find that our treasurer left anything you might catch on, you know. And it is not impossible that the Ohio River Improvement Company may some day be resurrected under the name of the National Grindstone organization, and you'd at least be entitled to a hole in a grindstone."?

"You can't come that game on me. I could thrash you in less than three shakes of a sheep's tail, but I am not going to do it," re- . plied the Democrat. "You are afraid." "No, I am not afraid, but I see through your little game." "What game ?" "You want me to knock you down. Then you will' write to the President, that you have been beaten at the polls by a Democrat, and that the party ought to do something for you.

Very Strange.?Major Gale Faxon bought a horse from the pastor of an Austin church, and shortly afterward the following conversation was heard : "You have swindled me with that horse you sold me last week." "How so ?" asked the clergyman, very much surprised. "Well, I only had him for three days when lie died." "That's very strange. I owned him twenty-three years, and worked him hard every day, and never knew him to do that while I owned him." fgT A young fellow riding down a steep hill, doubting if the foot of it was hoggish, called out to a clown that was ditching and asked if -it was hard at the bottom. "Aye," answered the countryman, it is hard enough at the bottom I warrant you." But in a half a dozen steps the horse sank up to the saddle-girths, which made the young gallant whip and spur and utter oaths. "You rascal," said he to the ditcher, "didst thou not tell me that it was hard at the bottom ?" "Aye," said the ditcher, "but you are not half way to the bottom yet." ?rMr. Billings," said an Arkansas boarding house mistress, addressing a gentleman wiiu mm just uiKeu ins strut lit tuts uiuie, juii make the thirteenth at dinner.

At that instant lightning struck the telephone wire and knocked the man down, and as he scrambled to his feet he excitedly cried : "That's Sarah, every time !"

Presence of Mind.?A few Sundays ago a Western church was discovered to be on fire, but the preacher with presence of mind, said nothing about it.

These are of two kinds : mistakes of faflt, .and mistakes of .i^w^ Experifefcft'Kas proven-that bcmtv, sometimes men, sometimes make blunders, and the law has decided that a real mistake of fact in an important part of a contract will excuse the party mistaken from performing his part of the agreement. For instance : a man made a contract with one ice company and refused to deal with another. When the bill was presented he found that the latter company had supplied his ice. He refused to pay the .bill, and it was decided that the mistake freed him from liability. A horse was sold by a trader and paid for on the spot. While the trade was going on tne norse uieu. j.ne uuyei uuuiguu ?mt iui the money paid, and it was decided it should be paid back, since both parties had made a mistake of fact, in supposing the horse to be alive when the trade was ended. If a farmer intending to sell hay sells oats by mistake instead, he may refuse to deliver the oats on that ground. It sometimes hai>pens that a bill is paid by mistake with counterfeit bank notes. In such a case the payment is void and the receipt taken is worthless. A mistake in the quality of the thing bargained for is no ground for breaking an agreement. If a man buys a cheap thing, with the idea that it will serve his purpose as well as a more expensive article, lie cannot, because he was mistaken, send it back and recover the money paid. A mistake of law is 110 ground for refusing to carry out a contract. This rule is founded on the old maxim, "Ignorance of the law doth not excuse." And every man is supposed to know the law of the land he lives in. Suppose a debtor gives his note, promising to pay a sum of money with lawful interest, thinking that the legal rate is six per cent. If ten per cent, is the legal rate, his ignorance of the fact will not excuse him from paying the ten per cent. When well-known legal words are used in a contract, with a mistaken idea of their meaning, they are binding, in their legal sense, upon the person using them. If land is deeded to a man and to his heirs, he receives the estate absolutely, although both parties intended that he should only have the estate during his own life. Some mistakes of Jftjv put an end to agreements on the ground that they are rather mistakes of fact than of law. An executor of a will pays money to a person whom he thinks is an heir. If the supposed heir be an impostor, the money can be recovered. If, under a complicated will, a person buys rights which are his already, he may get back what he paid for them. Mistakes of law in civil cases only cost money ; but mistakes of the criminal law have more serious effects, in the loss of respectability and reputation. Here the plea of ignorance of the law will not be accepted. A ?:?i i. ?? i.i.? ^ ,1^,1 criminal must sunci cue peuaiLjr ui mo ucuu, though he thought it lawful when he committed it. Formerly an outlaw might bp slain by anybody ; but if a private person should now kill an outlaw, with the idea that he had the right to do so, it would be punishable as murder. An old law book gives a curious instance of the plea of ignorance. Sir John Johnstone, a Scotchman, was tried for stealing and marrying one Mary Wharton, an heiress, "to the great displeasure of Almighty God, to the great disparagement of the said Mary, and to the utter sorrow and affliction of her friends." When he was found guilty and sentenced, he asked, with surprise, if it was a hanging matter. He was told that it was, and he was sentenced and "executed on a gibbet, before his lady's door, in Great Queen Street." Happily the days of harsh and cruel laws are past, and penalties are now imposed to reform tl'ie offenders rather than to avenge the offense. Youth's Companion. The Last Flag of Truce of the Confederacy.?The last flag of truce in the war of the rebellion was carried by Col. R. M. Sims from the Confederate General John 13. Gordon to Gen. Sheridan. The cessation of hostilities brought about by tins truce immediately preceded the surrender at Appomattox Court House. The flag borne by Obi. Sims was simply a white towel, and after the surrender it disappeared entirely, and was for a time forgotten in the excitement attending the last events of the great conflict. Within the present year Col. Sims wrote an account of the last truce of the war, which was printed in the Charleston News and Courier, and the publication of his narrative has interested many persons in the search for the missing flag of truce, which it was believed was retained by somebody as a valuable relic of the rebellion. Gen. Sheridan was asked for infer mation concerning tne towel, nut neitner ne nor members of his staff whom he consulted remembered anything about it. However, the towel has at last been found. It is in possession of Mrs. Elizabeth C. Custer, widow of the late Gen. Custer, who is now in Europe, to whom it was presented by Gen. Sheridan at the close of the war. Gen. Carle A. Woodruff "remembered this incident, although Gen. Sheridan had forgotten it. Mrs. Custer recently wrote a letter to Col. Sims, in which she stated that the improvised flag had been treasured by her with other war relics. "It has," she added, "never been used or exhibited in any way that could offend .the most' sensitive spirit. Gen. (Mster taught me early in my married life to look upon our unfortunate war as too sacredly sad to admit of any feeling save that of sorrow and regret that one brother's hand should be compelled to be raised against another." Convenient Shelves.?A convenient arrangement of shelves in one corner of your room is easily made. Have a cari>enter or some other competent person nail or screw cleats to the wall, on which the three-cornered shelves may rest; have them fastened securely to it, and see that they are level. These shelves may be three in number, and it is a good plan to have the lowest one at about the height of an ordinary table?a trifle lower, nerhsms the mison for this is that it is more rvi " i? 7 -? easily taken care of and kept free from dust than if it is so low as to oblige one to stoop or kneel down. These shelves may be made of common pine (well seasoned, of course), or of black walnut. Tliey may be finished with narrow lambrequins, scalloped at the l>ottom ; fringe is not desirable in a common room, as it catches dust. A shelf similar to one of these is especially convenient in the dining room. I saw one placed about as high as the top of a side table ; it held a pretty tete-a-tete set, and was an ornament to the room. This was covered with cretonne, and had a band of the same for a lambrequin.

That will, one of these days, necessitate the sale, for if the road cannot pay the running expenses and interest I on the bonds, it would certainly soon go under 1 with the additional expense of a receiver.

We are taught in the Scriptures that Jesas Christ, the promised Messiah, executed the office of a prophet, of a priest and of a king. The discharge of the particular functions belonging to each of these offices was, in the economy of grace, necessary in order to the salvation of sinners. In other words, it was equally important that the redeemer of sinners l>e a prophet to instruct his people, a priest to make an atonement for their sins, and a king to rule in and over them. Viewed,, however, from a human stand-point, the sacerdotal work of Jesus Christ is the most important. In the order of nature, the purpose of the triune God to save sinners is first. The next thing in order, is the atonement, then follows the work of the prophet and the king. It was as a priest that Jesus Christ died upon the cross. He was crucified as a priest. Paul, in Gal. t?: 14, says, "God forbid, (or may it never be) Muit. T should trlorv. save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ." In 1 Cor. 2 : 2, lie uses the following language, "I determined to know notTiing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified." From these and other passages of Scripture, we conclude that the priestly work of Jesus Christ opened the way to his executing the functions belonging to the office of both 'the prophet and the king of his people. It is only from the Scriptures that we are able to discover what are the official duties of a priest. From that source, we learn that the official duties of a priest are to make an atonement for the sins of his people; to make intercession in behalf of those for whom he makes an atonement, and to bless those for whom he is officially exerting himself. A priest may correctly, because Scripturally, be described as a person chosen to exert his influence with God in behalf of men, or to treat with God in favor of men. Both a prophet and a priest are representative persons. A prophet represents God, who, by means of the prophet, communicates his will to men. A priest represents men, who communicate their desires to God through the priest. Previous to the time of Moses, we know but little about the priests, or the manner in which they discharged their official duties. That there were priests, no one can doubt. How they were chosen, or how they were inducted into office, we do not certainly know. Propitiatory sacrifices were offered up to God soon after the fall. Cain and Abel both, uin process of time," brought offerings unto the Lord. By "process of time," is meant the end of a certain time, or "end of days," which probably means at the end of the six days of the week. If this be correet, and we think it is, Cain and Abel brought their offerings unto the Lord on the Sabbath. It would seem that they met at the same place, and although it is /M.lir .?n nnininii uro a ro inplinorl tr? til ink" t.hilt. uiJij an \y|-rii4?vsiij v* v/ i?&v w ? ? ? ?. ??? Adam, their father, officiated as priest. If this was not the case, then each, for himself, acted as priest. This, however, is not in harmony with God's dealings with the children of men. Some one wiis always chosen and set apart to represent the multitude. During the patriarchal period, the heads of families were both prophets and priests. It is certain, from the nature of the case, that the sacerdotal office and duties are of divine appointment, and of divine revelation. The idea that God could, in any way, be propitiated by sacrifices, is foreign to the human mind. Adam and Eve, after having sinned against God, acted in perfect accordance with sinful creatures, in that they attempted to hide themselves from the presence of the Lord. We find that in the order of narration, immediately after the interview of Adam and Eve with the Lord God, "the Lord God made coats of skins and clothed them." It is probable that the skins with which Adam and Eve were clothed, were those taken from beasts which Adam had offered ;is sacrifices to the Lord God. This probability amounts to almost, if not altogether, a moral certainty, since animal food was not granted to man until after the Hood. The grant was made to Noah, and will be found in Gen. 9:3, in the following words: "Every moving thing, that liveth, shall be meat?(that is food) for you." Previous 1o this time, we have no evidence that any animal was slaughtered for food. If this conclusion be Scriptural, and we think it is, then the skins with which Adam and Eve were clothed had not been taken off animals slaughtered for food. It is not probable that these animals were slain for any other purpose except sacrifices. Such being the reasonable inference, we conclude that Adam, by the com mand of (rod, offered up animal sacrifices, and with the skins of these animals Adam arid Eve were clothed. From Adam to Moses, the duties of the priest were discharged by the heads of families. The worship of God, under old Testament dispensation, was typical. The visible Church was not organized until the time of Abraham. Previous to this time sacrifices were offered to God. The Sabbath was observed, and prayer and supplication made to the Supreme Being. Everything in connection with the worship of God was in a formative state. The call of Abraham marks a very important epoch. The Ordinances of religion were now concentrated in a single family, and all the other families neglected. The worship of God established in the Church, as organized with Abraham, was perpetuated through Isaac and Jacob. During the period of Egyptian bondage all the forms of religion seem to have been nearly suspended. It vyas a period of great degeneracy. The time of man's extremity is, however, always the time of God's opportunity. The children of Israel were, in due time, visited by God, released from bondage, and sent, under a chosen leader, to the land which God had promised for a possession to his servant Abraham. In the wilderness, between Egypt and Canaan. God did wonderf ul things for the Church. The moral law was codified, the tribe of Levi chosen to minister in sacred things, and Aaron and his descendants selected and consecrated as priests. The Church assumed an appearance which it never had before. Moses was the prophet, and Aaron the priest. Both were types of Christ. Through Moses as prophet, God communicated his will to his chosen peo- 1 pie, and through Aaron as priest, and the sac- j rifices which he offered, were typified the great ( high priest, who would, in the fullness of time, offer up himself a sacrifice which would satin- : fy the penal demands of the law of God. From the time of Moses to the coming of fi.n co/mnlnhi 1 nffipp w!L? confined to Vyl 11 lOlj liiV' aavcivtwi** VMIW .* _ the family of Aaron. The whole tribe of Levi were selected by God to minister in sacred things, but all were not priests. Every priest was a Levite, but every Iievite was not a priest. In the time of David, the priests were divided into twenty-four orders. I. Chronicles 24:7?IB. This division was adopted by Solo- < nion,II. Chron. 8:14, and restored after the Babylonish Captivity. Ezra 2:36?39; Neh. 7: 39?42 and 12 :1. This division of the priests was in force at the time of our Saviour. Over all the priests'there was one, who, on account of the dignity and influence of his po- \ 3ition, was called thvpricst. (Exodus 29:30;) J chief of the high priests, and simply a high priest. He was called chief of the high priests " to distinguish him from the principal men of the twenty-four courses or orders, who were called high priests, that is, chief of the order < to which they belonged. Such is a brief historical statement of the origin and perpetuation of the Aaronic priesthood. Paul very briefly and clearly states the object designed to bo^wompHphed. by-tlgse L priests.^. The follbwicgis hislangtyiget "Every hfgff priest, taken ffttrf-attwng men* dained for men, in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins." Hebrews 5:1. From the Scriptures we learn that the priests of the Old Testament dispensation were types of the Messiah, and the services which they rendered were typical of the work which the Messiah would perform. It must be clear to any mind, that the gifts and sacrifices which the Aaronic priests offered were inadequate to make a satisfaction for sin. This they were not dejsfgnea to da-, *fpfy jWfll'Bdppted to typify, the sacrifice which would make a satisfaction to the law and justice of God, and thus reconcile God to man. Besides the typical character of the Old Testament gifts and f sacrifices, they were devotional, embracing confession of sins and acknowledgment of h mercies received. The^whole, howpver, was fl but a' shadow of sdhieChiiig better. 'Paul, in () Hebrews 10:1, says the law," that is the cove- v nant of Mount Sinai, with its rites and cere- 11 monies, "having a shadow of good things to <; come, and not the very image of the things, can never, with those sacrifices, which tl.ey offered, year by year, continually, make the comers thereunto perfect." Jesus Christ was the priest and sacrifice to which they all pointed, and without whom they were worthless. But of this again. YORKVILLE ENQUIRER. PROSPECTUS FOR 1SS3.
