New Chprch (iainc.
There is a prospect of a great church
row up in Chippewa county. It seems
there are people there who play cards,
and it ha been one of the serious du
ties of the church to frown down all
such wickedness. It hag been argued
that the handling of cards leads to
gambling, and cheating, and games of
chance have beu held up to the youth
as the wickedest thing imaginable.
Hut since the last church sociable was
held the 01 Idly people have been
warning the youth against the sins of
sociables. It seems they wanted to
raise money for the church, and one of
the deacons suggested an innocent
game which would fill the coffers. A
wash tub was procured and filled wiih
bran, .ind a silver coin placed in the
bran and concealed. For ten cents
person could take a big spoon and dip
out a spoonful of bran, and if he or
she got the coin in the spoon, they
were so much ahead. The good peo
ple were anxious to lay up treasures
where moth and dust does not corrupt,
so they played the bran game exten
sively. The tub was surrounded, and
people had to stand in a line and
take their turns. The deacon who pre
sii'ed over the innocent game and took
in the dimes, perspired, and put on an
air of prosperity, and had his pockets
full of money, and he gloried that
the church had struck a soft snap
How much better this was thaa the
wicked seven-up, the wordly euchre,
the terrible eassiuo, and the demond
iziug draw poker. Here there was
no chance of getting the bowers up
one's sleeve. Here all was fair, and
there was 110 shenanuagan about it
You paid your money and you pu
in your spoon. The church was wax
ing rich, and all went merry as
marriage bell, until some of the
worldly people had hands dealt to
them. They had noticed that the
truly good people had squandered
their money and got no return, not
even as much as uh: does when
playing three card monte. The
worldly people marveled much that
the coin did not coniu up with the
bran, and after taking a few chances
in the Jerunli'in lottery, one of
them kic'ied, aud called tor a "show
down." The deacon did not know
what a "snow (Lwu" wa, and want
ed the game to go on, but the world
ly gamblers who believe 1 there was
"colluliug insisted on having a
committee appointed to examine
the brau. The dcacoy turned pale
and asked if they doubted him, and
tried to stand off .m investigation,
but the brethren' aud cistern' who
had beeu despoiled of their wealth
by the seductive brau mash, eided
with the wicked worldlings, and the
wa9h tub was examined The bran
was taked out into the boilers that
had been prepared to boil the oyster
for the soup, and when the bottom of
the tub was reached, the enormity of
the descou's offense was found. The
silver coin was nailed to the bottom
of the tub. A murmur of reproach
wenc arounu, ana tue deacon was
sought, but ho had taken his coat on
his arm and gone home, his head bowed
down with sh line. As he went out
he tot.l the pastor that there was no
use of trying to run a church if world
ly people were allowed to come in and
investigate the game. What it want
ed was faith. There is talk of having
the deacon brought before the confer
ence on charge of obtaining money
under false pretenso?, but the pastor
thinks perhaps the deacon did not
know that the coin was nailed to the
bottom of the tub. He says, now he
thinks of it, the deacon looked very
much surprised when he left the soci
able that night. The worldly people
propose to push the matter, o claiming
that it was a skiii g im-3ofth3 wo:st
description, and many of the church
members, who lost t'ipir money, favor
an investig niou. However it turns
out it is uotortunate, and shows that
honest7 is the best policy, even at a
church sociable. The deacon asks a
suspension of public opinion until he
can prepare a statement.
It Was a Loul Shout.
The news of the sweeping triumph
of Hon. Geo. S. Smith and his associ
ates causes much rejoicing lp.'re. The
hurrahs of the boys in Platf smo:ith
were distinctly audible in Lincoln
over the telephone. A shout of vict ry
that can 1h heard fifty miles is a good
one. Lincoln Journal
