Leave her in peace at last. . —Jferion Sacked. A Sen or HlsMittiu#. John Gray is the name ot an ill-starred individual at whom the fates hare been steadily frowning for a long time. Guclt a category of evils as lie lias suffered are sel dom heard of, especially when arising from such a course os he traces Jiis mis haps io. A short time since the wife of this ms fortunate man gave birth to her third child, and failing to recuperate as usual from her maternal labors, she lay, vary low, upon a bed of sickness. The doctor enjoined the utmost quiet as a necessary condition of her recovery, and John tip toed very carefully around the house, as he was in no hurry to see his three children motherless. It seemed that an itinerant tramp and over-zealous missionary, named D. A. Norton, heard of the forlorn con ii tion of Mrs. Gray, and, in spite of the protestations of poor John, he intruded himself into the woman's bed-chamber, where he depicted the horror* of hell in graphic word* and delivered fa very noisy prayer in behalf of the invalid's unregene rate soul. While discharging this pious duty, John, who had repeatedly warned the preacher to make less noise, loat his patience, and, seizing the astounded par son by the nape of the neck and the seat of his pantaloons, he lugged him out of the house before "amen" had been said, and dropped him gently into a mud-pud dle in tho street. An hour or so later, poor heathen John, who couldn't appreciate the efficacy to save if not to cura of a load Mothodist prayer, was torn from his wife's side by a ruthless peeler, who hurried him to the Chicago avenue lock-up. John was poor and friendless, and half •cared to death, and he lay in his cell com pletely stupefied at the curious dispensation of Providence for two day* before he was accidentally discovered by a real estate man named C. V. Hardy, who bailed him out. When he went home he found that the Methodist prayer and the excitement attending subsequent events had killed his wife, and he had just time to put on a clean shirt and go to the funeral. After a terrible effort to get his children cared for in some charitable institution for he was out of work and had no money), he secured their admittance into the Half Orphan Asylum. Then he waa tried be fore Justice Kaufmann on the charge of walluping a Methodist home missionary, and was sent to theJBridewell for 30 days. The facts |in the caee were presented tn Mayor Colvin, 'a few days ago, about a week before John's term expired, and the fellow was pardoned out. When he went home he found that his house had been broken open and his chest of carpenter tools stolen. He now walks the street with a chastened eir, and every I'm be meets a missionary he takes off his hat. Meantime the Rev D. A. .Norton ener getically pushes his gosjiel work, and suf fers no interruptions now when he prays byjthe bedsidos of dying Christians.—[C1M eago Paper.] Lying is like trying to hide In a fog—If you move about you arc in danger of bump ing your head against the truth; as soon as the fog blows up you arc gone anyhow. t# 8.
