A good old preacher who lives in a small town down in Indiana received au Invitation a few days ago to travel several miles into the country for the purpose of performing a marriage service. Being too feeble to go on foot and having no funds with which to hire a conveyance, the reverend gentleman was somewhat perplexed until he happened to think of Bill Haines, the proprietor of the local livery stable. lie called on Bill and mentioned the fact that a young man and a fair maiden were waiting far from the madding throng to be joined in the holy bonds of wedlock, and Bill, being a man of keen preception, re plied: "I allow you'd like to get a horse and buggy to take you out there?" "I had an Idea that it would be a fine thing If you could help me in that way. I'll tell you what I'll do. Wil liam. If you will let me have one of your rigs. I'll divide what I get with you when I return." "All right." said Bill, "that's a go." The parson was accordingly provided with a horse and buggy, and be drove away. When he got back, covered with dust and considerably fatigued, he climbed out of the buggy and. handing the reins to BUI Haines, said: "William. I thank you five hundred times." "1 thought you was goin to divide with me." Bill answered. "I am doing so. When I had pro nounced them man and wife the groom offered me a thousand thanks." Chi cago Kecord-Heraid. Jas. F.
