A minister and ft lawyer, both resi
dents of this city, wore joking the othir
day. Said the minister, addressing the
lawyer: "If everyone were to se! tie their
differences among themselves, what
would become of all the lawyers ?" "We

in the cause of the Lord," was the law
yer's witty reply. To understand the
point of this joke, it was intended to
convey the meaning that the ministerial
ranks would be oyer crowded, then what
would becomo of the ministers. St. Paul,
before he became an apostle, is credited
by historians with having been a very
able lawyer. -
