Snydcr lias tor twenty-two years been the pastor of the Salem Reformed Pres byterian church sit Jlnrrisbnrg , Pa. From a very small beginning ho has made his church one of the most nourishing in that city , Wealthy and prominent eiti/.cns were attracted by his preaching , n splen did church cdilice was built foi him , and both pastor and pepplo were in a most tlonrisliinjr condition. Some lime ago Ihe Uov. fllr. Snyder felt too sick to pre pare a bcrmon of his own , and ho preached ti very eloquent termon by Iho Itev. Dr. Talmagc , supposing that no ono would know thu diU'eroncu between his own style and that of the eminent Itrook- lyn preaches. "Uo sure your sin will Jiml you out , " however , is true of sermon stealing as well us other kindsof larceny , The congregation were delighted with Ihe sermon , and thought Mr. Snyder - der even more eloquent when fueling unwell than when in his most ro bust condition. It is probable that If he could have gone on preaching Dr. Tnl- mago's sermons his salary would have been doubled and a new head put on Ihu church Bti-i-ple. Hul a curious and carnal person in the shape of n young lawyer happened to bu in thoaudio'nco , and men tally made eomu habeas corpus rullee- lions on thu body of the Mirmon. Thu more he thought , of it the more ho be came satisfied that he hud hoard it lie - fore. Oil reaching homo ho happened to lake up i tt rolnnio of Dr. Talmnge's serA - inons , and there sum enongliYviis Ihe identical Hormon which hail produced Mich an awakening ell'ecl upon the He- formed Presbyterian dinreli nl Harris- burg. There was no possibility that thu appropriation had been accidental , and that Ihu Huv. Mr. Snyder's ideas about , it certain text had chanced lo bo idonlieal with these of the Hov. Dr. Talmago. Nol a word had been altered ; tliu doth was whole and wholly Ihe clolh of Ihe paster of the llrooklyii Tnhornacln. Instead of thanking Mr. Snyder for giving them the very best sermon hu could Jiml , the congregation havu re solved to cast liiin down hendlinig from his pulpit of elevation.
