LOOKED LIKE A CLERGYMAN.
A Funny Conversation Overheard in a
From tlit Washington l'oat.
It is very wrong to play jokes on
the clergy, and only very sintul peo
ple over do it. There is a newspaper
. man, well known on the row, who
I -wears the snuggest face, the most
ministerial air, and the most clerical
spectacles of any man in the business.
During a recent convention, which
drew several hundred clergymen to
Washington, Mack (that isn’t his
name) got into a street car lull, of
ministers, stumbled half way up the
aisle, and caught the eye of a fellow
‘‘Why, Brother Thompson, how do
you do?” he exclaimed, grasping his
hand and shaking it effusively. Mack
eat across the aisle and started a run
ning conversation which could be
heard all over the car.
“Let me see, Brother Thompson, I
haven’t seen you since the triennial
conclave at Chautauqua in 187').
How is your Buffalo charge getting
along? How is Mrs. Thompson?
Did you get your salary raised ? No ?
That is too bad. I did. I worked
my congregation nicely. I had a
friend in Cleveland who is on the
staff of a secular newspaper, and he
was unscrupulous enough to work up
a boom for me. there until I received
nn offer of 85,000. Of course, my
congregation wasn’t goirg to be out
bid—ha, ha—and' they saw that
85,000 and went them 81,000 better.
This was in May, one year ag >.”
The whole car was attention by
this time, and Mack was the focus of
thirty pairs of curious eyes.
“Along in June I sat for my por
trait. I got 40 per cent, gross on
those, you know. What do you get ?
Nothing? Oh! dear, Brother Thomp
son, you really neglect your oppor
tunities. Let me sec. I received
from the church fair proceeds alone
last year [the amount was lost in a
whisper.] But these portraits were
careworn. I sent four dozen of them
around to the dear ladies, and it
would have done your heart good to
see how they worked and raised 8500
to send their pastor off to Europe.
“I hear you are thinking of taking
a new charge? Is it so? Want to
have a chance to work over your old
sermons? Been eight years in one
place? Well, I donit blame you. I
can’t very well. You see I liavc
made a good many investments in my
city, and it would necessitate too
many sacrifices to break the old ties.
■ Still there are other ways. I sue
cecded iu negotiating nn exchange of
150 sermons for au admirable series
by Dr. Scott of San Frnflcisco. The
good man was much pleased.
“There, there, oh, dear, dear. I
have just called to mind that a family
which has been in my church for ten
years has just moved to San Francis
co, and is going to join Dr. Scott’s
■church. They may remember those
sermons. Oh, dear! it may make
trouble for Dr. Scott.”
Mack chuckled and poked “Broth
cr Thompson” in the ril>3 with his um
brella. It was a rainy day.
“Where is your umbrella, Brother
Thompson? Is that it? That is not
the sort of umbrella you ought to
have. Look at mine. The finest of
silk and an elegant silver handle. 1
don’t know whether you ever noticed,
but I always have nice umbrellas.
You sec mine is a fashionable church,
and there is always a good many stran
gers at divine service. I have an ar
rangement with the sexton to pick out
on rainy Sundays the best umbrella left
in the vestibule and put it away for
me. The reeular pew-holdcrs always
take theirs in the pews, and only
strangers leave umbrellas in the vesti
bule, so I never have any trouble
about umbrellas. Ah, here is my
street. Good-by, Brother Thompson.
Come and see me when you can
A babel of whispers ran around the
car and indignant glares followed the
pseudo clergyman. One venerable
parly came down to "Brother Thomp
son,” and, note " book in hand, asked
the name of “that clergyman.” Brother
Thompson struck his forehead with
his clenched fist, but for his life could
not locate the talkative preacher, and
to-escape cross-examination left the
car at the next corner.
