Not informing himself as to which church the Conference was to be held, he aud Mrs. Sharp strolled across the park to the Park Church, but when they tried the doors could not gain admittance.

A poor couple living in 'he Emerald Isle went to the piiest1 for marriage, and were met with ! a demand lor the marrige fee, says Tit-Bits. It was not forth coming Both the consenting parties were rich in love and j in their prospects, but destitute 'of financial resources. The j father was obdurate. "No mon I ey, no marriage " "Give me l'ave, your river ence,'' said the blushing bride, "to go and get the money." It was given, and she sped forth on the delicate mission ot raising a marriage fee out of pure nothing. Alter a short interval she returned with the sum of money, and the ceremony was completed to the satisfac tion cf all. When the parting was taking place, the rewly made wife seemed a little uneasy, "Anything on your mind, Catherine?" said the father. "Well, your riverence. I would like to know if this mar riage could be spoiled now?'' "Certainly not Catherine. No man can put you asunder." 'Could you not do it your sell, father? Could you not spoil the marriage?" "No, no. Catherine. You are past me now I have nothing more to do with your marriage." "That aises me mind, ' said Catherine, and God bless vour j riverence. There's the ticket for your hat.

There are any number of ways to get worse; the only way to get better is to do it. The right kind of a man doesn't wait for an invitation to kiss a girl; he waits for a chance. You don't have to look at a girl to know if she is pretty; look at the men who are look ing at her. Six weeks after the tirsTof every January the biggest cast off collection in any country is made up of discarded New Year's resolutions. Love is no respector of pris ons. Marriage isn't near so much a burden to some men as it ought to be. He is an innocent man with women who doesn't know enough to seem so. The easiest way not to fall in love is to watch how easy other people do it. There are three things that can always get the best of a woman politi;s, pickles and punctuation.
