that mny principal business is to get

"Mr. - , ifa man gives you
five huundred dollars to keep for him

AN amuisin g incident occurred in
1o of our down east churches some
years ago. The clergyman gave out
on a pleasant Sabbath in July:
I love to steal awhile away
From every cumbering carei,
And spend the hours of setting da7
In humble, grateful prayer.
The regular chorister being absent,
the dutv devolved upon the good old
Deacon~ M., who cominienced:
"I love to steal"
And then bagged down, and raising
his voice to a still higher pitch, he sung
"I loye to steal
And, as before, he concloded he -had
got the wrong pitch, and deploring that
he had not his "pitch tuner," he deter.
mined to succeedw if ho died in the at,

tittering behtind their fans, while the
f aces of the "young 'uns" were all in a
broad grin. At length, nfier a des.

"I lovo to steal"
The effiort was to nauchevery oth.

was lauughitng. who arose, and with the~
