Our Ilappy Henson.
From the Washington Capital
Cool weather comes, bald-headed men
Observe the fact with glee,
For each may say and say again.
‘ There are no flies on in *. ’
When a man tells me that lie would
not do such a mean act as 15ro. Wank
was guilty of, I keep my eye on him
When a pessemist tells me that
every thing is going to' the dogs, I do
not need to see in what direction he is
When a man seeks notoriety and
sympathy on the score of what ho has
been, I am at once led to question
closely what he is.
When a man adopts abuse instead
of argument for the" advocacy ot a
cause, J am sorry for the cause and
suspicious of the advocate.
When a young minister says he
finds it much easier to preach extem
pore than to write his sermons, I have
sympathy for his congregation.
When a person tells me he can’t
render Christian service, I spell it
“can’t,” and then substitute in its
place the truth, “don’t want to.”
When a man protests that ho is
innocent of an act before lie lias been
charged with it, “methinks lie doth
protest” too soon, it' not “too much.”
When a layman tolls pie that he
can preach about as. well as his pas
tor, I argue that he either under esti
mates the preacher or over-estimates
When a merchant advertises that
he always gives honest measures, I
deal with somebody else. Honesty
that has to ho advertised may well be
When a pastor becomes a perpetual
scold and critic, I know his own heart
needs sweetening. Things in general
look wrong when there is dust on one’s
When a minister constantly tells
his people what they should not do
and rarely tells them what they
should, I expect to find them doing
what they should not.
When a church gets clique cursed
or exclusive, I know Christ is not a
member of it, for ho belonged to no'
set, no caste, hut to the world.
“Whosoever will, let him come,” is
the motto of his church.
When the deacons of a church are
to be found in the vestibule before
and after service, welcoming stran
gers and smiling everybody into good
spirits, I congratulate the pastor, and
perhaps envy him a little
When a man tells me that he be-1
lieve Shakespeare has done the world
as much good as the Bible. I do not
know how well lie is acquained with
Shakespear, hut I do know lie must
he vastlyjgnorant of the Bible.
When a politician says lie seeks no
office, and is visiting Washington
purely for pleasure, I look in the
newspapers each morning to find out
if he has yet received the appointment
to something he professedly does not
When a young Christian continual
ly wants to know why it is wrong for
lrim to do this and that doubtful
thing, and if it may not he all right
in case his conscience approves, 1 am
sure it will end by his doing all the
desired tilings, right or wrong, con
science or no. Moths play around
the light until they get fatally burnt.
When a man tells me he is an infi
del, and then asks me for a few dol
lars to save him from starvation, J
answer by recommending him to the
charitable organizations founded and
maintained by infidels. And when
he replies ifi bewilderment, that he
does not know of any, I assure him
that he has uttered one of the stron
gest arguments against infidelity and
When a member of another denom
ination says he has changed his views
of doctrine and wants to ui^fe with
mine, at the same time seeking a small
loan to help him out of immediate
necessities, I look into his letter to
discover how many other churches he
has belonged to and borrowed from.
A Christian should not be suspicious
overmuch, neither should he squander
overmuch on church tramps.—The

the result is a collision, whether “romtngr
thro’ the rye,” or not. Life is full of collis
ions. We are constantly colliding with some
body or something-. If it isn’t with our
neighbors it is with some dread diseases that
” knocks us otT the track ” mid perhaps dis

have to bear the brunt of more collisions and
