Army" plats which are intended to
remedy tbe three great hindrances to sue
cessful Sunday school work, v'z: irregu

adopted in many schools and are found
to give the highest satisfaction.
"Are Sunday School Social Unions

J. W. Welch was the person to whom
tbe topic was assigned, who took the
ground that combined effort and better
acquaintance with the whole body of
workers, in this department of effort

HOW HE GOT EVEN.

The comedian, Frank Daniels, was a
Boston boy and recently played an en
gagement in his native city. As his
manager, Frank Murray, was starting
for Boston about a week prior to Daniels'
opening there, he asked the comedian at
What hotel he intended to stop during
"I believe HI go to the Barker House,"
said Daniels. "For years I nsed to pass
that hotel many times daily, but though
I have lived in every hotel in Bceton,
strange to say I hare never yet tried the
Barker. 1 wish yon would drop in there
and ask them to reserve a nice apart
ment for me." On reaching Boston
Murray attended to the matter and a few
days later Daniels was drily installed
in luxurious quarters. "How do you
like your rooms?" asked Murray the next
day. "They couldn't be improved upon,"
said Daniels. "I tell you the Barker
House is the place; you can't beat it."
That afternoon Daniels stepped up to
the hotel desk for his key. The clerk
inquired politely: "How are your quar
ters, Mr. Daniels? Everything satisfac
tory, 1 hope." "Very nice," replied
Daniels; "as a Bostonian I am proud to
know that the Hub is fully abreast of
the times in the matter of hotels, as well
as in other respects. By the way, what
are you charging for my apartment?"
"Ten dollars per day," replied the clerk
blandly. "Ten dollars per dayf ex
claimed Daniels. "Isn't that "pretty
steep?" "Not at all," answered the
clerk; "just look how those rooms are
furnished. There's nothing finer in the
Vanderbilt mansions. Why, that bath
tub is solid porcelain and cost $500; the
Bokhara rug beside your bed cost $225,
and the entire furnishings are on a simi
lar scale. We couldn't have spent more
money on the rooms if we had tried."
"Well, I'm glad you didn't try," re
marked Daniels as he departed with his
key. Tbe next morning Frank Murray,
having some business with his star, in
quired for him at the desk, and was in
formed that Daniels was stiU in bis
He got the number and went up tin
announced. Rapping on the door, be
received no answer; he rapped again,
but still no reply. Turning the knob,
he found the door unlocked and walked
in, expecting to find Daniels still in bed.
To his surprise the rooms were appar
ently deserted. He was about to retire
when, happening to glance into the
bathroom, to bis astonishment he saw
the comedian sound asleep in the porce
lain bathtub, carefully covered with the
Bokhara rug. His explanation of sur
prise awoke Daniels, who sat up and
gazed sleepily at the intruder. "Great
Scott! Frank,' shouted Murray, "what
in thunder are you doing in that bath
tub? What's the matter with the bed?"
"Well," replied the comedian, "they are
charging me ten dollars a day for this
porcelain bathtub and Bokhara rug, and
this is the only way 1 know to get even."
