In thla season of holidays let us remind ear
readers In country parUbes not to forget their
pastor. If heUapoormanmthlsworicfsgood,
aa almost III country clergymen are, there U no
girt more graoefal snd useful than a policy of in
surauc on hi life presented to him by, the
panao. it may do an insurance payable to him
self when he reeche middle lire or old age, or
payable to hi wife at whaterer Urn he may die.
It I a gift which will be remembered and enjoyed
by the recipient long after all other gifts com
memoratiBg this Joyfoi season of the year are
lost and forgotten.
A certain amount of wealth Is aa necessary for
th comfort and prosperous bfe of the pastor a
It U for any member of the parish. The neces
sities of both are alike. But his business of
preachlag the Gospel brings no aoctiuuLuon of
wealth with U, a doe the business l other
men. nous ne is sometimes receiving lea for
his weekly labor than the carpenter who built
hi pulpit or the upholsterer who cushioned It,
he U called apon to work longer and to expend
more than either. Hi time, hla thoughts, and
uiiijiuiwuiniuuai w an iuidk to an rnea.
He must beg for the poor and he must entertain
the rich. And lucky la his wife-if she Hods,
after the stranger who ha taxed her hospitality
la gone, a buk-note under the pillow, a a
recognition of her kindness.
It U well to remember that yonr pastor cannot
live on spiritual riches, although hs may have an
abundance of them. As a man he need the
aame temporal coinforu and convenience of
life that hi parishioners need, and the necessity
for them increases in proportion aa his family

Sikci tbi burning of the livery stable ef John
Cornell, on the corner of Contreaa and Beall
streeu. early on Wednesday morulas, the police
authorities hare been on the out-look to appre
hend th rDctndlartc and bring them to Justice.
Previous to the fire two atrange men, named
Frank Beerer and Qeorge Lee, were noticed
about town, baring no money and apparently no
occupation. Since the burning of the aubie
suspicion has rested on these men and their
movemeuU closely watched by the police, who
had received instructions that should they ahow
any disposition to leave the city without any
good cause to uke them Into custody. Yester
day morning they expressed their Intention of
ping to rrederick, MiL. and being without
funds proposed to make th Journey on foot.
This fact coming to th ears of Acting Sergeant
Rogers, he immediately arrested them and
forwarded th information to police bead-
auarter. Detectives CoomeaandMcEtfresh were
irected to proceed to Georgetown and bring the
men to headquarter, which waa done, and they
are held until tbia morning to be taken before
Judge Snell for an examination.
