lTcrtdlns Fees
irhll4li h Times
The llcv John Hall D D of New
York has one of the wealthiest churches
in this country The Btateraent is jriven
that the Doctor receives about 10 00 a
year in wedding fees This is not sur
yrisinc for many who come to him to
be married are millionaires or the sons
and daughters of millionaires Dr
Hall rushes into print to correct the
Ftatement He says If I publish
the actual facts I have a little appre
hension that I may lose the respect of a
part of the community that part which
always looks deferentially on large sums
of money I am aware that a slight
utrcak of envy sometimes mingles with
the respect but that is neither here nor
there If I tell the readers of the por
tion of the prtss that deals in informa
tion jf this kind that I never per
sona ly knew of a wedding fee of more
than a hundred dollars and that I never
received as much as five hundred dol
lars as marriage fees in one year why I
may go clown in the estimationof my f el-
low citizens I shall be to them no more
than one twentieth of what I seemed
My shadow will be less Not only 60
but I may seem to reflect on that
particular part of the press that affects
this kind of news and I may not get
credit in the future even for compara
tive good looks
Having thus knocked 9500 o3 of
this wedding fee account Dr Hall pro
ceeds to denounce the whole weddinc
fee business He asks Would it not
be a good thine to cut off all the small
favors given to ministers such as half
fare passes on railroads wedding fees
and even donation parties and let
TJiinisters be put lite other men onliv
injr salaries 7
This is toe sweeping As to railroad
fares and donation parties it is well
enough but the wedding fee is alto
gethera different aflair and rests on
a different basis Thet ia no reason
why a man should ride for half price
simply because he is a minister If ho
render a service to the company trans
porting him he deserves pay for it and
should be rewarded accordingly The
donation party is anoutrapeous nuisance
which should not be inflicted on any
decent minister Bat the wedding fee
is a fair compensation for a special ser
vice It is r matter almost impossible
to fix as to definite amount Hen pay
all the way from a dollar to a thousand
for getting married A man who is very
poor or very mean or who doe3 not
think the lady of his choice is of any
particular account majr satisfy his soul
by handinz the officiating clergyman a
dollar or two A wealthy man or ono
who marries an heiress can as easily
payra hundred or five hundred or even
a thousand dollars There are many
cases in which a hundred dollar bill is
gracefully slipped into the clergymans
hand although Dr Hall does not seem
to have had much of a run of this sort
JVtf luck The average fee among well-to-do
people is probably about 10
3Iost clergymen give their wedding fees
to their wives An bpscopal clergy
man who made a practice of this was
embarrassed by the receipt of a pair of
trousers as a fee from a nice young
tailor for whom he performed the mar
riage service

Bob Insrersoll

Col Robert G or as he is general
called Bob Ingersoll is a native o
the western part of this State but
when very young removed with hL
parents to Ohio afterwards to Illinois
His youth was passed on native prairici
and in primeval forests and he grew ur
Independent in character and ruggec
in constitution While in his teens he
laft home drifted around picked uj
an education studied law and soon ac
quired a local reputation in Southern
Illinois as an eloquent pleader Hii
father was a Presbyterian clergyman
who was very strict but allowed Bob
always a skeptic to express his radical
opinions because he wanted him to tell
the truth Ingersoll is said to be one
of the most if not the most popular oi
lecturers His infidel opinions prevent
his engagements in regular courses and
Lis dissertations on theologic topics are
attended mostly by men either jounc
or old but womeu flock to hear him
and are greatly pleased when he speak
on subjects of domestic nature Hs re
ceived 1200 for one lecture in San
Francisco reported to be the largest
amount ever made at one time by any
lecturer His wife and children
fhare his heterodox views and have al
ways done so They are said to love
him devotedly and his home life is de
scribed as happiness itself Neither of
his two daughters now young women
has ever been inside of a church even
when the were traveling in Europe
From his profession and lectures he
earns from 40000 to 70000 a year
and spends most of it He gives away
a great deal in charity believing that
when a man saves he becomes felfish
and begins to petrify He now calls
Washington home and his practice
there ismainljr parlimentary law He
has a host of friends who are warmly at
tached to him and he is reputed in
private life to be as lovable as he ii en

A Startling Prediction
We extract iha following hiehlv
sensational article from a Cincinnati
daily to the authorship of which we
are indebted to a Polish gentleman
named Jules Brolaski
Havine devoted manv vera to the
1 1 ilent study of astronomy and what in-
nuence me planets or the solar system
have upon the earth in reference to hu
man events I beg leave to make a few
statements in reference thereto It is
not necessary for me to enter into an
extended explanation by what hypoth
esis I have arrived at my calculations
It is not generally known that a grand
conjunction of the foufprlncipal planets
occurs in the latter part of the year 1881
which is an event that has never been
recorded in the known history of the
earth and as to the consequences in re
ference to our globe nothing but con
jectures can bo formed I have how
ever a few prognostications to forecast
which you may accept for what they
are worth
1 That Rutherford Hayes will be
the last President of the United States
as a Republic and no successor to him
will enter the office on the 4th of March
2 That as the event of the aboe con
junction referred to approaches the
electrical powers of nature will increase
in force The coming summer will give
evidence of violent storms with unusual
display of thunder and lightning Great
damage witu some loss of life will oc
cur particularly on the Western level
and rolling lands and on the seas The
destruction of crops will be large
3 The winter of 1880 lSSl will be an
open one with indications of great rain
and dampness and wlHT5rolific in a
black plague of a violent ana contagious
type Death and diseaso will stalk
4 The United States wiirbecome in
volved in a war before the 4th of July
1881 either by internal political strife
at elections or diplomatic difficulties
with other nations that I am unable to
5 When this conjunction of the
planets occurs if the electrical equilib
rium of the earths axis is disturbed
its extinction will be accomplished by
one of two processes either by a
violent upheaval of all natuie to destroy
all animal and vegetable life and con
tinue to revolve around the tun to all
essential purposes a dead world or to be
shattered into infinite spaco and fall in
meteoric fragments as to something that
has never been

Casts from living Tornis
I was taken by a friend says a Parit
correspondent to sep the wonderful
plaster casta of living human beinpi
which are among the curiosities of the
Russian department How the thing
is done it is impossible to imagine but
there the two statues are recumbent
female figures undoubtedly taken from
living women One lies slightly turned
upon her side her lips parted in a smile
as though she was trying to suppress a
laugh The other who was much the
finer of the two lies face downward
her feet crossed and her head pillowed
on her folded armB as though she had
thrown herself down to sleep The
minutest details of the -texture of the
skin nails eta ere very perfectly re
produced the gooseflesh wherewith
the skin is covered being amusingly
noticeable and showing that the pre
paration used for these casts the com
position whereof is a secret must be
applied cold Then all the little in
dentations in the soles of the ftet and
the palms of the hand and the curve
of the nails and their rimmings of skin
and flesh are produced with startling
accuracy The profess by which these
figures are produced is still a secret but
it ia certainly a wonderful discovery

Having a photograph taken is one of
the great events of a mans life The
chief desire is to look the very best
and on the success of the picture hinges
in many cases the most important epoch
in life To work up a proper appear
ance time enough is used which if de
voted to catching fleas for their phos
phorous would cancel the entire na
tional debt and establish a New York
daily paper When you have completed
your toilet you go to the gallery and
force yourself into a nonchalance of ex
pression that is too absurd for anything
Then you take the chair spread your
legs gracefully appropriate a calm and
very indifferent look and commenco to
perspire An attenuated man with a
pale face longhair and Boilednoso now
comes out of a cavern and adjusts the
camera Then he gets back of you and
tells you to sit back as far as you can
in tho chair and it has been a remark
ably backward spring After getting
back till your spine interferes with the
chair itself he shoves your head in a
pair ot ice tongs and dashes at the
camera again Here with a piece of
discolored velvet over his head he bom
bards you in this manner Your chin
out a little please The chin is pro
truded Thato nicely now a little
more The chin advances again and
the pomade commences to melt and
start for freedom Then he comes back
to you and slaps one of your hands upon
your leg in such a position as to give
you the appearance of trying to lift it
over your head Tne other is turned
under itself and has become so sweaty
that you begin to fear it will stick there
permanently A new stream of pomade
finds its way out and darts downward
Then he shakes your head in the tongs
till it settles right and says it looks
like rain and puts your chin out again
arid bunches out you chest and says he
doesnt know what the poor are to do
next winter unless there is a radical
changa in affairs and then takes the
top of your head in one hand and your
chin in the other and gives your chin
a wrench that wouW earn any other
man a prominent position in a new hos
pital Then he runs his hand through
his hair and scratches his scalp and
steps back to the camera and the in
jured velvet for another look By this
time new sweat and pomade have
started out The whites of youreyeH
show unpleasantly and your whole
body feels xS if it had been visited by
an enormous cramp and another and
much bigprer one was momentarily ex
pected Then he pointa at something
for you to look at tells you to look
cheerful and composed and snatches
away the velvet and pulls out his watch
When he gets tired and you feel that
there is but very little to live for he
restores the velvet says it is an un
favorable day for a picture but hopes
for the best and immediately disap
pears in his den Then you get up and
stretch yourself slap on your hat and
immediately sneak home feeling mean
humbled and altogether too wretched
for description The first friend who
sees the picture says he can see enongh
resemblance to make certain it is yo j
but you have tried to look too formal to
be natural and graceful
The Labor of an Editor
The London Times speaking of tho
wmk of an editor says it can only be
appreciated by those who have had some
experience in it The meerest slip of
the oen ah epithet too much a wrong
date a name misspelt or with a wrong
initial before it the misinterpretation
of some passage perhaps incapable of
interpretation the most trifling offensa
to the personal or national susceptibility
of those who do not even profess to cars
for the feelings of others may prove
not only disagreeable but even costly
mistakes but they are about the least
of the mistakes to which an editor is
liable The editor must be on the spot
till the paper is Eent to the pras and
make decisions on which not only the
approval of the public but even great
causes may hang He can not husband
his strength with comparative repose
in the solitude of a study or tne iresn
uess of green fields He must see tho
world converse with its foremo9tor
busiest actors be open to information
and on guard against enor All this
should be borne in the mind by those
who complain that journalism is not in
fallibly accurate just and agreeable
