BLvhy's Retreat.
A rolling pin gathers no "dough.'
A patch on a small boy's trousers is
something now under the Sun.
A hallo wort reverence o'cr'mo "steals
As I life's deeper fnllncs quaff;
While insight, keen to mc reveal?
Those preachers on the Staff.
Presiding Elder Boomer ska
Aud wisdom writes with conscience clear;
When tired, he very wisely quits
To thro' his sermon mill in gear.
As there ho sits with patience rare
Among this uncouth hoard
While sorrow kinlcs tiis raven hair
And hoarders work their hoard.
And Pastor Corey's writings nil
Show depth of brain and power of will
Steeped in the essence of Saint Paul
And clothed in superiiuturul skill.
Why, I believe, dear friends, if Corey
Should walk on tacks from night till dawn
Or strike his thumb till bruised and sore
He never once would say doggone.
Oh give me patience, holy, -sweet
To rise above life's rude "riff'rafr"
So 1 citn got there with both 'feCt
Like otheripastors on the staff.

The free for all debate was cut short to
hear a plan proposed for the organization
of a debating society down town by a

After a half hours spirited discussion a
vote of thanks was extended to Mr. Thorp
for his generous invitation but the pro
