Married on a Railroad Track.
A Charleston preacher has beat
en the world’s record in the matri
monial line. A few days ago hie
received a request to go to a resi
dency on the south side to marry
a couple who were anxious to em
bark on the matrimonial sea. The
minister set out in haste to find
the place, but in the rush and ex
citement incident to occasions of
this kind he forgot the name of
the parties, and consequently could
not find the house where they were
anxiously awaiting him. After
rambling about for some time he
had about concluded to abandon
the search when he met the couple
on the C. and 0. railway track.
They had gone forth in search of
the - minister.
At His Word.
Many post-office names are queer

the name itself.
A minister in Cass county wrote
to Washington in behalf of the
residents of a growing hamlet,
asking that a post-office be added
to its institutions. The request
was -favorably received,- and- he
was asked to suggest a name that
would be acceptable to his neigh
