HI9CELLA9KOIS HE A DIM
A CANDID DEACON.
Deacon M. was an honest old codger, a
kind, obliging neighbor, and a g«u d church
going Christian, believing in the Presbyterian
creed to the fullest extent; but, alackudav! -
this pillar of the church was at times a little
“shaky”—in fact, the deacon would occasion
ally get exceedingly “mellow;” and almost
every Sunday at dinner he *ould indulge in
his favorite cider-brandy to such an extent
that it was with eomu little ditto uliy ho
reached his pew, which was iu the broad
aisle, near the pulpit, between the minUtfi’*
and the tillage Squire’s. One Sunday morn
iag the parsoo told bis flock that ho should
preach a sermon in the alternoon touching
tuauy glaring sins that he grieved to see so
conspicuous among them, and that he hoped
they would listen attentively and not flinch
if be should happen to be severe. I he af
ternoon came and the house was lull; every
body turned out to bear their neighbors
“dressed down” by the minister, who, after
well opening his sermon, commenced upon
the aggressors in a loud voice with the ques *
lion, “Where is the drunkard?” A solemn
pause succeeded this enquiry; when up r* so
Deac >n M., with his face radiant from copi
ous draughts of his favorite drink at his
noontide meal, and, steadying himself as well
as he could by the pew rail, looked up to
the parson and replied in a piping and trem
ulous voice, “Here 1 am.” Of cour>e a con
sternation amongst the congregation was the
result of the honest deacon’s response; how
ever, the parson went on with his remarks as
be bad written them, commenting severely
upon the drunkard, and winding up by warn
ing him to forsake at once such evil habits if
he would seek salvation and flee the coming
wrath. The deacon then made u bow* and
Beated himself again. “And now,” out
spoke the preacher-mao in his loudest tones,
“where is the hypocrite?” A pause, but no
one responded. Eyes were turned upon this
and that man; hut the most glances seemed
directed to the 'Squire's pew, and indeed tho
parson seemed to squint bard in that direc
tion. Tho deacon saw where the shall was
levelled, or where it should b* aimed, und,
rising once more, leaned over bis pew-rail to
the ’Squire, whom be tapped on the shoulder,
md thus addressed: “Come 'Squire, why
ion’t vou get up; I did when he called on
me.”—Boston Post.
COAL IX LONDON.
In the city of Loodoo coal is sent to consu
mers id sacks containing one hundred pounds
3dcb. These are loaded od large carts, draw n
by enormous horses, with scales and weights
to each cart, and, if desired by the purchaser
the sack is weighed by the driver. When
the honesty of the coal merchant and the in
tegrity of the driver are well established, tho
weighing of the sack is seldom required —
And in the purchase of a cartload of sacks,
some three or four of them, taken promiscu
ously, are tested by the scales, and it found
correct, the weighing of the remainder of tho
load is dispensed with. This mode of buying
and selling c al is the result of many years’
experience in the vast city of Lindoo.
