IIo Is generally known ns tho merchant
preacher. A question of difference
sprnng up between the secular divine
nnd one of his members. It was about
money advanced for the purchase of

He Is reported as follows:
"That follow Is beneath my notice."
Tho term referred to the lnymnn In
question. The discourse continues:
"My sermon wns based on 'The Second
Mild Disciple.' Part of the text was.
'If n man nsks for thy cloak give him
thy coat also,' etc." The minister snld
that, as his father was born hi Ken
tucky and his grandfather In Virginia
and his ancestors before them came
from Scotland and Ireland, he found It
prQtty hard to live up to the text.
"Dr. told me," said the inerchnnt
cleric, "that the man (referring to the
'follow') nsked him If I were a danger
ous man, and the doctor told him that
I was a Christian gentleman, but that
I was an nthlcto as well and would
knock the daylights out of n man who
would crowd me." This language from
tho pulpit rather startled the congrega
tion. Hut thore was more to come. By
tho time the dear people recovered the
pastor, raising his voice another notch,

Then the congregation wns nsked to
rise and sing while the deacons passed

tho world wants It can get It In Chicago.
