The Cithcn. in its last issue tells an affecting and interesting story of the conversion of a tramp passing through the streets of Macon last week by the preaching, praying and sieging of a band of Salvationists. One old lady playing tambourine, who reminded him of an affectionate mother who had died with grief over the conduct of a wayward boy, especially touched his heart and led him to remain until be had received comfort in believing. It is such incidents as this, happening every day, the conversion of homeless wanderers who would never hear the glad message of salvation except for the army that has given that oace de spised band of Christian workers a warm place in the great heart of hu manity.

Waa ted m Smart Dog. James Glasgow, a resident of North east Missouri, te'ls a story illustrative of the simplicity of Indians. Thirty years ago, when he was en gaged in freighting goods across the plains, this incident occurred: A mem ber of the wagon train owned a rat terrier. The dog had lost his tail either by accident or design, and had also had his ears dipped. He was a clever dog. and was greatly admired by the Indians, who continually loafed about the camp. One day an old Indian inquired if ! cutting the do's taii o T and clipping i rns ear3 naa raiae n;m a smart uog.

The Indian carefully picked up the two pieces of the pup and surveyed them in silence for two or three min utes, aad wrapped them up in his blan ket with the remark: "Deep hell damn?

A few days ago when it begun to head out, a discouraging scene was presented, for scattered through all the entire field is found a great deal of cheat. Mr. Diggins sowed clean wheat and it is evident that "wheat turned to cheat,' as it often does, although it is an oft debated question, which receives as hearty negative argument as does the affirmative.
