Weather Always With Us.
There are many who say that th seasons are changing, but a glance at a weather calendar shows that the "extraordinary weather" at mid summer is very ordinary indeed if we take long views of things. In. January, Iti;2. 'epys noted In his diary that a fast day had been or-. dered by Parliament "to pray for more seasonable weather, It having hitherto been summer weather." In June, 1771, Swift was rendered ex ceedingly peevish by the heat. In July, 1757, Walpole writes, "I have made a tour of my garden but once these days before eight at night, and then I thought I should have died of It. For how many years we shall have to talk of the summers of '57 !" In 1880 July was ,o hot that Words worth could not sit indoors, and, as Dorothy tells us, "went into the wood and altered his poIems." The Unconventional Professor. One of the most extraordinary ex amples of unconventionality In dress was Prof. F. W. Neu nman. lie often clothed himself In onion fashion three coats, one over the other, and the last one green. In winter weath er he would wear trousers edged with six or eight Inc.hes of black leather. During that period of the year hli favorite outer g:nrment was a rug, with a hole in the middlle for his head. But even this. Professor Newman's blographer notL,. was not such a surprising vagary of public costume as that of another professor, very dreamy and absent-minded, who, he ing Intent on making some abstruse point hlear to a young lady pupil, walked one evoeninc round and round a Lonllon square with her, talking earnestly and nttlred In his top hat and dressing gown. - Manchester Ouardian. Early Church Utensils. When our Puritan forefathers first began to pass the plate for contribu tions in the meeting house It was not a plate they passed in most places, but a brass warming pan. Into this the coins jingled cheerfully until some one decided that it was too cheerful and a long-handled wire corn popper was substituted. The artistically carved and velvet-lined plates used in many churches today are a recent adaptation. In the earliest colonial days no collection was taken at all and the salary of the parson was paid In pork and pumpkins, potatoes and peas, flour, dried apples and beans, I with occasional "donation parties" that provided further luxuries. When church activities began to extend be yond the immediate parish it was nec essary to collect coins, so the warm ing pan and the corn popper were both used to gather them up quickly. C ARTER.
