liev. Edward Mtiyses, of the Episcopal

called and upon the first night a dance
was announced in the public ball. In-
steud of attending this meeting the
congregation went to the dunce in u
body. Next Sunday Mnyses said to
the members : " I would ask you if it
is more important to attend a low
public dance than it is to attend to
yonr church duties, inul if yon think ii
right, to have me preach to omptj
b.-iii-liesV If you do. then go then
and stay."
This created bitter feeling, ami three
weeks thereafter the minister made
these remarks before au audience of
Ii00 persons most of tbem church
people: "If you want to loin hell
just come to Diindus." Now the
church folk have got their turn on
Mnyses, for he has allowed the young
people of the city to organize a dancing school, nnd that, too, in his bouse

Minis, until it came to be the feature of
her performance and looked for by the
regular habitues us tbe piece de resistance of the entertainment.
"Did you sco old Minis?" said one,

He went to the stage door nml waited
for Nonie to com. out. There was it
group uf men about, waiting for a
chance to ogle tbe favorite or, perhaps,

nenrby cosy retvoat; and among them
Minis saw the one wbo had thrown tho

girl hesitated, stopped and listened;

The fellow made ns if to follow, but,
looking nboiit, he saw Minis' eyes fixed
upon llllll. Beneath tbe streetlights
they glittered liko beads ot tire and
seemed uncanny from tho setting of his
queer, ptilo face. Tho man shrugged
his shoulders and walked away in tho
other direction.
The nest night, whilo Nonio wns sing-
