Books are Keyicwed and Litcravy j Papers Iteaii, But tho Members are Xot Pcrinitied ?o Talk Shon. There are clubs and clubs in Richmond, t>ut none more interesting, jovial, or bener ticial to its members than the ijuodecim Club. lt is, a^ its rvame impiies, a club of ?twelve, and ull Its members are clergy? men. Tlu-n: are three Melhodists, three Episcopaiians, three Baptists, and three fi>resbyterians. The Methodists are Revs. '.W7""v*r"Ta<^r. W. B. Beauchamp, arid 03dward Leigh Pell; the Episcopalians are Revs. jL. R- Masori, J. J. Gravatt and "VV. M. Clark; the Baptists are Revs. James Xcison, R. H. Pitt. and S. -C.

Tho club oicets once a month at 5 o'clock in the afternoon with one of its members, usually at the residenca of the thost- In its l'unotions it is both literary and social. and one of its iron-clad rules js that no snember is permiltcd to 1alk sbop. At each meeting a paper is read 7>y some aicmbcr, previpusly designated. The -writc-r of such paper is at libcrtj* to select his own subject, and may write on anythlng from a presidential election to a iynching-bee in an outlying county.| iHe may discuss politics, literature, xeligion, temperance, or anythlng else Chat he has a mind to, save and except 4hat he will be stoned with stones if ho mukes any allusion whatcver to his last tBunday's sernion, or brings into his dls ?oourse anythiiyr that he has been preach Sng about "lt Ms a concelt ?f the club that sermons are for the ediiication of tho pew. Whether. in the estimatiun of ihese gentlemen of the cloth sermons pre viously preached are too good or too bad for the r>uodecim Cu.b is not for me to auy. I jsiniply give the rule. j ' . WHAT THJ3Y READ. j "''ASter this j>aj>er hafe been read there is ? book review. ' and each member U lexpected to lell the club what he ihas t>ecn readlng slnce the last meeting, and mhMt he thlnks of the books he has read. !JJE Jtfcere is- one partlcular book that iseveraLl -ot them have read, ithet book la -dlacuaaed, and opiniona as to Its sneriia !ar? *xpreesed by ibiB tnembcr and that iWoala ?you. lika to knovr what. theae iorajachara read? The (jueatlon can be in?a??r?d lh two 'worda?everythlng going. *TUey ara *"^Ive.. up-to-date eet They t>*?*the txsw books: they read the maga alnaai euM ?*? i?*lewe; tbejr rea4 the aewi. f?fW 1% atudy tbm BIWe and tM tcxt-books, but they study current events, also, and when they get up to preach they preacli as those who know pretty. well what is going on in the worid. When the discussion of books comes up, it Is interesting to nolr the trciiJ of each preacher's min-?. Take. for example, Rev. Dr. Tudor, of the Methodist Church, and Rev. Mr. Clark, of the Episcopal Church. These two praachers are ncar neighbors and the best of friends. and, in most re spects, quite congenial. They read a great u'eal. and when the bcoks of the month a-re under review they can be counted on to "have read thc latcst novels; that is to say, the novels which are worth reading, and flt to read. I -have heard that they twere the iirst members of tho ciub to read Quo Vadis. 1 do not know what they thought of the book. MAXY PREACHERS OF MAXY MIXDS. " Rev. J- Calvin Stewart, who, by 'tho way. is president of the club, reads very closely the books on church doctrine. Rev. W. B. Bcauchamp reads very closely the works on practical religioiv Rev. Dr. James P. Smith devotes a great deal of his spare time to the reading of religious biograph'es. n<? also reads everything connectcd with the war between the States. The reaciing of Rev. Edward Leigh Pell as prlnclpaliy In the line of Bible work. Rev. Dr. Mason reads every? thing that he can get his hands on con cerntng sociology?not socialism, but religious sociology. in which he believes. Rev. Dr. Xelson and Rev. Mr. Gravatt are general readers. Professor 'Mitchell THK PJ3AR OF lll'MBUG Picvcnts Many People Proin Tryins a Good Medicine. Stomach troubles are so common and in most cases so obstinate to cure that people ar?e apt to look with suspicion on any remedy claiming to be a radical, permanent "cure for dyspepsia and indl gestion. Many such pricm themselves on their aculeness ln nwer being lium bugged, especially in mediclnes. This fear of being humbuggt-d can be carrfrd too far, so far in fact, that many people t'Uffer for years with wcak diges t:on rather than risk a little thne and money in faithfully testing the claims madeof a preparation so reliable and unl versally us*d as Sturafs Dyspepsia Tab lets." iXow 'Stuart's Dyypepsia Tablets are vastly different in one important respect from ordinary proprietary medicines, for the reason that they <ar,o not a s>ecret patent medicine, no secret is made ot their ingredients, but analysis shows them to contain the na'tural digestive ferments, pure aseptlc. pepsin. the-digestive acids, Golden Seol, blsmuth, hydrasts and nux. They are not cathartlc, nelther do they act "powerfully on any organ, but they cure indlgestion on ? the common sense plan of - digesting "the f ood eaten thor oughly beforeit bastime 4o ferment, sour. and causethe mischl'ef. This is tho only secret: of their success. Cathartlc pllls never have and neyer can cure Indlgestlori and stomach troubles because they; act enttreily on the bowels, wherens the wh,ole trouble ls really in the stomach. ., Stuart's .Dyspejiria Tablets taken after: aieals digest the food..That ls alt thi re.i?. to it.

Rev. Dr. Kerr has a turn for pure literature. He keeps up With the latest works on science. religion, poetry, music, and so on. Rev. Dr. Pitt is a newspaper man, and, there.fore, a general reader. FtLOW OF THE SOUL. After discussing books the members of the club adjourn to the dining-room and discuss things more substantial. It is reported that they all have good appe tites, and that they iknow as welll how to feed themselves as to feed their several flocks. They despise hash. They do not indulge in strong d'rink. But they' love' the pure food which a generous Cr'rJtor has given. They eat it witli a relish, and after supper most of them ."will smoke one or two cigars to the glory of ;God. I forgot to taention another and one of the most important rules of the club. Xo women are, under any circumstances. allowed to be present, either at the lite? rary fcast or at the feast of leavened brcad which follows. Traiisfcrs of Prbpcrty. Richmond: James W.
