a member of the Methodist Kpiacopal '

Burton V. Stone cf l xingtoti. Ky., '
a Presbyterian minister, embraced the
same views In 1S0;1.
The real starting point, however, is I

what is commonly known as the
"iKclaration and Address," in which
he ably eet forth the doctrines and

day the common faith of that people
and which is usually refernd to by
tlicm as "cm pb a."

Dogs on the trail often display intel

i one occasion I remember I was driving
! a team of dogs down the Yukon river
and had one dog in the team called
Tommy, who was a good dug In his
way, but who showed a strong dislike
; to being harnessed to such an extent
that in the morning, when all the other
' dogs were hitched to the sleigh. Tommy
would hide himseif under a cabin or
bury himself in the snow.
This continued f.r several morning.
