"Bulls" by Clergymen Arouse
.Mirth of Their Hearers.
Bad Judgment Sometimes Displayed
by Preachers In the Selection of
Their Texts Curate's Odd
New Yock It wan Dr. Cosmo dor
don Lang, archbishop of York, who.
when ho was bishop of Stopnoy, ro
marled, apropos of tho chlldron of tho
cast end: "They aro doing a great
deal to robuko tho tendency of tho
clorgy to bocomo middle aged in spir
it dull, moroso and superior." And
ho told ono of his favorite Btorlon of
im cast end cleric, who was feeling
llfoless and dlsconsolato on setting out
on his dally round of visits, when a
SJttlo street urchin looked up at him
.'with a cheerful oyo and knowing smllo
"Ullo, young man!"
"That greeting qulto reassured tho
parson for tho rest of tho day," Dr.
And It was Dr. Ingram, bishop of
London, who onco declared that a
"senso pf humor Is essential to suc
cess. If a young man has no senso of
humor I would kcop him at collego
until ho got one."
Dut, although many clergymen seom
to lack that senso of humor which is
so essential If their work 1b to bo suc
cessful nnd popular, thoro aro occa
sions when they themsolvcs aro tho
cause, unconsciously, of much amuso
mont to others. Tho Itov. W. Cowan
tolls, for instance, how tho "bull" at
times arou&oB tho risibilities of tho
congregation and plays havoc with tho
solemnity of tho occasion.
"Brothron, I bog of you to tako hold
of your heart and look it straight in
Tho following is said to havo been
a preachor'8 peroration: "Wo pursue
tho shadow; tho bubblo' bursts, It
loaves tho ashes in pur hands." A
London preacher a shorty tlmo ago In
vited "young mon and women of all
nges to attend his meetings, which re
minds ono of tho memorable exordium
of tho nervous curate: "Young ladlos,
or perhaps I should say young women,
for I wish to embraco you all." Nerv
ousness is, indeed, accountablo for
somo curious mistakes nnd laughablo
Incidents. Tho preacher must have
boon nervous who gavo out this toxt:
"Heaviness may enduro for Joy, but
night cometh in tho morning."
Apparently it Is dangorous for tho
young clergyman to fish for compli
ments. There is a story of a rovorond
dlvlno who onco asked a sexton how
ho liked tho sormon. "I didn't llko it
at all," candidly answered that worthy.
"Why, pray?" Inquired tho prcachor.
"First, bocauso you road It; secondly,
hccauBo it wbb not worth reading."
And thero was another young man
very vnin of his accomplishments as
a prcachor, "who, aftor olllclatlng at a
certain Borvico for a Scottish mlnlstor
who occasionally had to avail hlmnolf
of tho asslstanco of probationers, wns
met by thq old gcntlemnn with extend
ed hands as ho descended from tho
pulpit. Expecting high prnlso, ho said,
"No compliments, I prny," "Nay, nay,
my young friend," said tho parson,
"nowadays I'm glad o' anybody."
Mr. Cowan polnta out that preach
ers have a romarkablq lack of com
mon bcnso when choosing tholr texts.
IIo has heard of an Edinburgh minis
ter who preached n sermon on a mis
erly brother cleric from tho ordn,
"And tho beggnr dlod." Another clorlo
in preaching to a socloty of physlclatiB
announced ns his text: "A certain wo
man . . . had suffered many things
of many physicians nnd had spont all
that alio had, nnd wns nothing better,
hut rather grow worse."
This is a Htory, too, told of an old
evangelical clergyman who had a son
in orders. Tho young man became a
full blown ritualist. On ono occasion
tho futhor paid a vlBlt to his son, who
asked him to preach In his chinch.
For soma tlmo tho old man refused,
but prnsscd to do so, ho at length
consented, nnd choso tho text, "Dprd,

THERE'S POETRY IN PIE.
Thero Is probably no pio more gen
erally liked than pumpkin, when It Is
well mado and properly sea&oued. A
cup of Blfted pumpkin, or at most a
cup and a quarter will mako a good
sized pie. Ono or two eggs, a pint of
milk, sugar, ginger, a little cinnamon
or cloves, If ono likes a dark pie, with
a few drops of lemon extract gives a
good flavoi. Tho richer the milk the
better the pie, of course.
Pineapple Ple..-Mako a good rich
curst, add tho pineapple -with enough
sugar to sweeten, put a teaspoonful
