powerful motor carriage, with a frame
suited to support the weight of heavy

that It will often be called upon to car

Some Samiilcn of It From Ills JJoiy
In his new volume entitled "Now
and Then," which the venerable Dean
Holo of Iiocuestcr has Juat issued,
there nro mnny pleasurable anecdotes,
a few old and many new, says tho May
Woman's Home Companion. One of
tho most time worn, but still ono of tho
most tlcUllnj;, Is that about a Jury at
an Irish assize, most of whom when
told by the Judge to go to their usual
places forthwith walked Into the dock.
Another anecdote, bearing on tlie
temperance question, Is as follows:
"John," said a clergyman to one of his
parishioners who had been in the habit
of tarrying long at the wine, "John, I'm
pleased to see you've got n nice new
pig. I know you've been wanting to
buv one for a long time. How did you
manage It at last?" "Well, sir," said
John, "I guv up makln' u pig of my
self!" Hut the dean's best tale Is of a pur
son who was In tho habit of offering
up the following prayer for Queen
Adelaide: "O Lord, savo thy servant,
our sovereign lady, the queen! Grant
that as she grows an old woman sh
may become a new man. Strengthen
her with thy blessing, that she may live
