CRINOLINE IN THE PULPIT.

s gentleman old enough to remember
tho "age of steel," and who was Inti
mately acquainted with the country
parson who preached tho sermon he
His church was a very small ono,
and his congregation a large and .
fashionable one. Tho rector was
neither narrow-minded nor behind
the times, and his taste was catholic
enough to embrace even the crinoline
of tho early 60s. He did not find fault
with their appearance, only with the
undue space they usurped.
On one memorable Sunday morning
he electrified his congregation by dis
coursing on tho subject. He dealt ten
derly with the offending hoop, and
began by making a singularly unprac- 1
tlcal suggestion, with all tho ignor
ance of his well-meaning masculine
mind, to tho effect that they might
wear these appendages during the
week with great eclat, but leave them
off on Sundays.
