"The proper people could come here and get to work on the directory In November," said The Man from the East, "and during that month and December all the material could be gathered and put in shape, the adver tising contracts could be secured and by the first 1 of February the new and correct directory would be on the desks of the subscribers." "That's all that Is needed," said Baldy, "just some one to take the work and go at It as if they meant to do something and before one knows It the job is completed.

"That lesson-ln-the-office Idea Is _ men who are to write them, no per alright," said Fatty, "and that is the way new men are broken in every season, in large cities.

Cleveland, O., October 8.—With the projected union of the Congregation alists, the United Brethren and the Methodist Protestants as the principal matter to be decided, the triennial national council of the Congrelation allst churches assembled in Cleve today. Hundreds of clergy and lay delegates from all sections of the country are here to take part in the deliberations of the council and the six affiliated benevolent and mission ary organizations, slons of the national council were held today, during which organization was effected, reports of committees heard, the council welcomed to Cleveland and an address made by the retiring moderator, the Rev. Dr. Washington Gladden of Columbus.

On Monday, and Tuesday until noon the annual meeting' of the American Missionary Society will be held, to be immediately followed by that of the Horae Missionary society, which will close with the afternoon sesison on October 16. The remainder of the time, to the close of the series of in a r, Some Short ^Stories Afloat l Men Who Were Quiet. After a fight on James Island, South Carolina, in 1862, there was among the wounded a young fellow suffering in tensely and making an unusual amount a of noise. General Williams, in com mand, when passing through the hos pital quarters, approached the soldier and in a gruff voice asked: "What's ] the matter with you?" The soldier pointed to his foot, re "I'm wounded." plied: The general said:' "Stop your noise! Stop your noise! There are men lying around with their heads knocked off and not saying a word." An Impression. "Ah, I have an impression!" ex claimed Dr. McCosh, former president of Princeton college, to the mental philosophy class according to Judge. "Now, young gentlemen," continued the doctor, as he touched his head with his forefinger, "can you tell me what an impression is?" No answer. "What; no one knows? No one can tell me what an impression 1 b?" ex claimed the doctor, looking up and down the class. "I know," said Mr. Arthur, impression is a dent in a soft place." "Young gentleman," said the doctor, removing his hand from his forehead and growing red in the face, "you are excused for the day." "An A Silent Trumpet. Alexander Graham Bell used to teach the deaf and dumb—it was in fact, his work among the deaf and dumb that led to the telephone's in vention—and at a dinner In Washing ton he told this story: "Many years ago an aged friend of mine visited a church 1n Maine one Sunday morning. As soon as the ser mon began my friend, who was very deaf, took from his pocket an ear trumpet in two parts, and proceeded to screw the parts together. "While he was engaged in this work he noticed that the sexton, from his seat near the pulpit, kept frown ing and shaking his head at him. "Finally, just as my friend got his trumpet joined and made as if to put it to his ear, the sexton hastened to him and whispered fiercely: "'Ye can't play that here. If ye do I'll put ye out.' " The Washerwomen's Strike. If all labor difficulties could be ad justed with the celerity and decision displayed by Professor Jowett, the famous mast ir of Ballol, questions ot employer and employes would > not manifest themselves lc so violent a 1 manner as is frequent. The women, meetings on the evening of 17, will be occupied by the natlo^H council, the most Important meeting I being that of the evening of October 16, when the matter of church union will come up. Final action on the matter may not be reached until the following day. Among the delegates expression Is divided as to whether the proposed union of the Congregational body with the United Brethren and the Methodist Protestant's Is practicable or desirable, although a majority ap pear to favor the project. Whatever action may be taken, It Is conceded that the matter 13 the most Important that has ever come before this body. The union will be recommended by the committee which has had the matter In charge since "the meeting In 1904, held in Des Moines, la. Despite the apparent majority opin ion favoring the consolidation, a num ber of the strongest Congregational churches have gone on record as being unalterably opposed to the project and have'virtually filed notice that should the union be effected they will with draw from the national body and continue their work on an indepen dent basis. In the ranks of the United Brethren considerable opposition has also arisen, and it is believed that If the union plans go. through a split in that denomination will almost cer tainly result. Methodist Protestants almost to a man, favor union. It has been suggested by some church lead ers that the latter denomination be re celved by the Congregatlonalists in organic union, and that a close federa tion be established with the United Brethren. This arrangement, it is held, would result in a compromise between the warring elements where by the denominations would be saved and the United from disruption, Brethren federation would naturally, in the course of a few years, grow into an organic union. Some action along this line is likely to be agreed upon, as a compromise measure, when the matter comes before the national council for final decision next week. ^ says Youth's Companion, struck for higher wages in one department. Twelve collars for a shilling was the statutory price. They came to pres ent their claim to the master. "The washerwomen have come to see you," said the butler. "Show the ladies up," said the mas r ter. They clumped into the room, to find him poking the fire. He turned around. "Will you wash twelve collars for a shilling?" he asked quietly. They began to expostulate, touched the bell; in came the butler. "Show the ladles down." Presently the butler appeared again. "They seem very sorry, sir—would like to see you again." "Show them up." The washerwomen found the master intent, as before, on the fire grate. "Will you wash twelve collars for a shilling?" piped his cheery little voice. A stalwart speaker began £b make explanations. He touched the bell. "Show these ladies down," he said, and down they went. Again the but ler reappeared, expressing a hope that the master would see the women again. "Certaily. Show them up." "Will you wash twelve collars for a shilling?" "We will," they cried. "Thank you—good day, good day!" said the master. "Knight, show these ladies down," and the strike was over. He Not a Profession. Representative Lorimer of Chicago, who is a great walker, says Success, was recently out for a tramp tylong the conduit road leading from Washing ton, when, after going a few miles, he Bat down to rest. "Want a lift, mister?" asked a good natured Maryland farmei^uriving that to in in of ear his put to do way. "Thank you," responded Mr. Lori mer, "I will avail myself of your kind offer." The two rode In silence for a while. Presently the teamster asked: "Pro fessional man?" "Yes," answered Lorimen, who was thinking of a bill he had pending be fore the house. After another long panse, the farm er observed: "Say, you ain't a lawyer or you'd be talkin; you ain't a doctor 'cause you ain't got no satchel, and you shore ain't a preacher, from the looks of you. What is your profession anyhow?" "1 am a politician." replied Lorimer. The Marylander gave a snort of dis "Politlcs ain't no profession; ad the ot not a gust. politics is a disorder."

To change a mere "store" Into a busy "place of business" requires "the lure of the printer's Ink." Of course, the printers' ink must be mixed with the best brains, judgment and experience to be found In the entire store organization. The net result of such mixture is a win ning campaign of publicity—which means about 99 cents out of every dollar of the appropriation to be spent on newspaper advertising, the other cent to be devoted to ''supplemental'' ad ers dis 41; vertlsing. No great mercantile enterprise was ever built up without the aid of "the lure of printers' ink"—and none ever will he.
