Recently a friend who had heard that I sometimes suffer from insomnia told mo of a sure cure. "Eat pea nuts and drink two or three glasses of milk before going to bed," said he, "and I'll warrant you'll be asleep within half an hour," I did as he BUffgested, and now for the benefit of others who may be afflicted with insomnia I teel it to be ray duty to report what happened, so far as I am able to recall the details. t irst, let me say my tnend was right. I did go to sleep very soon after my retirement. Then a friend with bis head under h:s arm came a long and asked me if I wanted to buy his feet. I was negotiating with him when the dragon on which I was riding slipped out of his skin and left me floating in midair. While I was considering how I should get down, a bull with two heads peered over the edge of the wall and said he would haul me up if I would first climb up and rig a windlass for him. So as I was sliding down the moun tain side the brakeman came in, and I asked him when the train would reach my station. "We passed your station 400 years ago," he said, calmly folding the train up and slipping it into his vest pocket. At this juncture the clown bounded into the ring and pulled the centre pole out of the ground, lifting the tent and all the people in it up, while I stood on the earth below watching myself go out of sight among the clouds above- Then I awoke, and found I had been asleep almost ten minutes.

Mrs. S. of New Orleans has for many years been faithfully served by two negro women who, although bound by the tie of common devotion to their mistress, yet detest each other cor dially, so that the kitchen is the scene of continuous battle. Martha, the cook, is the leading light in the church. At revival meetings she was always the first to occupy the mourners' bench, the first to shout "Hallelujah !" and to fall into those contortions of body and outflinging of limbs that to the African mean "get ting religion." Eliza, the maid of all work, on the other hand, had al ways been an unregenerate heathen, scoffing at religion, jeering at Martha and declaring no power ou earth could induce her to go inside a church. Great, therefore, was Mrs. S. 's Jsur- prise on the occasion of the last reviv al to find that it was Eliza and not Martha who was attending the meet ings. "Why, Martha," she exclaimed, aren't you going to church?" "No'm," answered Martha sullenly. "Why?" " 'Cause dai Liza she goes now." "But isn't there room for both of you?" "No'm, dey ain't." All Martha's pent-up indignation emphasized the answer. " 'Cause. Miss Mary, dat Liza Bhe jes goes ter spite me. JSo sooner 1 gits up to go to de mo'ners' bench dan Liza she follers me and sets down clost beside me, and befo' I has a chanst ter git 'ligion Liza she begins ter girate around and shout 'Glory hal lolujah '." and she out wid her fists and hits me bim in de jaw, and she out wid her footses and kick me spang in de shin. But, I tall you, 'tan't 'li gion Liza's got, Miss Mary; hit's deb- iltry," New York Times. Taking No Chances. It is said that a New England min ister once told the following story just before the collection was taken up: I have heard of a man, prosperous and well to do, who went to church one Sunday and put a cent just a plain copper cent in tbe collection box!. On the way home he was over taken by a sudden heavy shower and, having no umbrella, crawled into a hollow log by the roadside to keep him self dry until tbe downpour was over. "Soon tbe log began to swell, and the wetter it got the more it swelled until the sides finally closed in on the prosperous citizen and held him in a grip like a vise. The rain ceased, but tbe unfortunate man was unable to move hand or foot. He shouted for help, but no one heard him. He was about to give up in despair when he suddenly thought of the cent he had dropped into the collection box that day, and it made him feel so mean and small that be crawled right out of tbe log without any further trouble. "Now, if you expect to get caught in a shower aml'be obliged to take refuge in a hollow log on the way home, by all means pnt a cent in the contribu tion basket! If you don't anticipate a crisis of that sort well, you will know what to do when the basket is pass ed." The niiuster expected a shower of silver and bills to follow this story, but unfortunately just as the collec Hon oegan a olacit cloud passed over head, it suddenly began to sprinkle and the peunies fairly rained into the con tribntion basket. Only one quarter, i solitary dime and a lone nickel were fonnd among the coppers, and they got in before the shower began. The congregation, it seeim, bad all left their umbrellas at home, and they were not taking any chance New York Times. As we act toward others we may ex nwt others to act toward ns. Syrus.

I was sorry to hear of the death of Uncle Crave Kilirore.of Dans. Ha was 80 years andl7 davs old. He has bflen a follower of Christ ovi- twmr years. I am sorry for the widow and children and grandchildren. He leaves a wile and lour children living, and several grawkhildren and exeat rnd- children. I was also sorry to hear of the death of Uncle Tom Floyd, who lived ont on the mountain, in what they call the Pocket. He died on the 13th of May and was buried at Cheekville grave-1 yard on the 15th. He was 77 years old. Weep not, dear children, father I has only gone to the Lord's call. Pre- pare thyselves to meet him in a better world than this. He leaves nine child- ren living and a host of grandchildren and great grandchildren. He has one brother living, Keuben Floyd.of Whit- well. He has been a professor of re ligion for about fifty years and bus been the stay of Tate Chapel church ever since the chnrch was built. The church has lost a great friend, but our loss is the Saviour's gain. Let us sing: "Why do we monrn departing friends. or shake at death's alarm V 'Tis but the voice that Jesus sends to call them to bis arms." I hope that tbe children of Uncle Crave and Uncle Tom will prepare to meet their father in the better land where partings will be no more.

I would sure have liked to have been there to have helped you eat those fish, the brother told about you catching on a Sunday.

Would say to Aunt Tish Morrison, who says she was raising chickens to feed the preacher, to send two or three to W. E. Kilgore. I ain living at my old home place at Victoria, and would like to know what is the reason my friends don't write to me. Is it be cause I am blind or is it because I can't get around or is it because I am poor, or what. I haven't heard from Tracy City for a long time. My post- omce is at victoria. I naven t many more days to live but I hope to meet with you all in some good meeting and if it is God's will, all to meet in heaven. May the Lord be with you all. REV. W. E. KILGORE. Cause for Alarm. An elderly patient in the Ten nessee mountain region was suffering from a malady the remedy for which the doctor prescribed in the form of capsules. The old woman trusted her medical adviser, but for medicine she evinced much suspicion. Some time after she bad taken the capsules she was asked by her son how she felt. "Porely." "Don't you want nuthin' to eat?" "No." Soon however, the old lady arose from her bed and took her seat in a rocking chair. Thinking that the attention would be gratefully receiv ed, the son filled her pipe, and, tak ing a live.coal from the hearth, car- ned both to his mother. . "Take that away, sbn!" yelled the nid umman in utmost, fritrht. "Don't vou know better'n come near me when I've cot them cartridges in me?" San Francisco Star. A Better Runner.

We've reached the golden shore!: And here we'll live and sing and praise, And shout forever more, We're welcomed by our Savior here. And friends and loved ones come,.
