The Preacbers Knew What It Wm
A good brother from Red Cloud once
went to Omaha as a delegate to a
church convention. The brother
wanted to look his best, and to that
end he took particular care in prepar
ing his outfit. There were to be dele
gates from the churches all over thi
broad land, and ai the eastern people
have an idea that Nebraska is 'out in
the wilderness, and that the westerner
wear buckukin suits and coonskin caps
this good brother of ours was determin
ed to teach them a different lesson.
He had a broadcloth coat, a vest cut
low and in the latest style, a broad
expanse of white shirt bosom and a
brand new Derby ht. Were it not
that he had pawed beyond the forties
and that he holds a high place m the
councils of the church with which he
is connected in Red Cloud, one might
have taken our brother for a dude.
But appearances arc deceptive. When
dressed in his bet and ready for his
journey our brother surveyed himself
in the large mirror in his parlor. That
he was pleased with his appearance
there is no question, for his family say
there was a satisfied hmile on his face
such as they had not seen in many a
day. But one thing he lacked to make
is outfit complete. At home he had
no use for a watch; away from home,
however,' it might bo convenient to
have oye. Possibly some of the breth
ren at the religiout convention fc
which he was delegate, might slop
over in prayer or in speech, and when
the other brethen would pull out their
watches to warn the speaker that he
was tresspassing on precious time he
did not want lo be the only one in the
large assemblage without a tiker. A
happy thought struch him and worked
:ts way through his well greased hair
Une of his sons had a watch and he
would borrow it. The chain would
ornament his vest. After he got the
watch lie put it on, and then again
surveyed himself in the glass to note
the effect. It was magical. At the
end of the chain was suspended a cuto
looking piece of ivory of about the size
of a dollar but as our brothr was not
acquainted with the wicked uses lo
which such things arc put he looked
upon it only as a handsome ornament,
that finished ofl the toutc cunemble, as
the French would say.
One the way to Omaha he was kindly
greeted in the cars and elsewhere by
liash'ly dressed men, all cf which our
brother took as a compliment to his
improved appearance- He never
dreamed that the ivory pendant to his
watch chain had any connection with
the recognition which he received
from the flashily dressed men. Arriv
ing at his destination a 1 1 mingl'inx in
the church with the other delegates he
found that he was attracting more
than ordinary attention from his
brethren. It was pleasing to him and
yet at tho same time embarrasing.
One good old elder who had been
preaching the gospel for more than a
quarter of a century came up to our
brother and, with a bland smile, asked
him why he wore that peculiar ivory
badge at a church gathering Our
good brother probably thought that his
son was a member of some secret
society of which the ivory piece was
the badge, and that possibly tho elder
was a member of the same society, so
he confessed that it belonged to ono of
his boys but that he did not understand
the meaning of the mystic badge. The
elder opened wide his eyes. Was it
possible that ne had found one man in
that vast assemblage who did not
know a poker chip from the badge of a
secret society ! He explained to on
Red Cloud brother the significance of
the ivory badge he wore on his vest
cha n and this made plain to him why
the flashily dressed men were so
friendly toward him while he was
traveling to Omaha. It is needless to
say that following the advice of the
elder who had preached the gospel for
a quarter of a century, our Red Cloud
brother promptly detached the poker
chip from his watch chain. He then
swore oiTfiom ever borrowing his son's
