Brown, a man of less than medium stature, possessed faigh, squeaky voice. Not long ago he was invited to exchange pulpits with a minister in a neighboring city.

Some men's way of getting the devil behind them is by chasing him around the stump and going slow. If the average man isn't wor rying around all the lime about his house his wife thinks he is getting reckless. A woman never gets to be so sure of her husband's love that she doesn't look hard at all the pretty woman he bows to. A woman generally doesn't find out that her husband has come home out of temper lor ten minutes after the cat has hid under the stove. A girl that doesn't naturally like to be kissed has no morals to speak of. A woman judges a man by the clothes he wears and anoth er woman by the clothes she knows she's got Every woman has an idea that if she only tried she could cry in a way t':at would melt a heart ot stone. A woman's love has two stages. In the fi-st she wor ships the man most as a hero; in the next she calls him "baby." It's almost as funny to hear a thin woman talk about Swinburne as it is to hear a fat woman talk about her soul. New York Press. Miss Cora Settle was visiting friends in Shelbina Sunday. A drunken man staggered in church one Sunday and sat down in the pew of one of the deacons. The preacher was discoursing about prevalent popular vices. Soon he ex claimed: "Where is the drunk ard? The drunken man was justfar enough gone to think the call personal, so rising heavily, replied: "Here I am," and re mained standing while the drundard's character and fate was eloquently portrayed A few minutes later the preacher reached another head in hisdis course and asked, "Where is the hypocrite?' Gently to his neighbor, the drunkard said, in an audible whisper. "Stand up deacon, he means you this time. Stand up and take it like a man just as I did, it will do you good." Ex.
