He Went to Chapel.
A wicked special siudo ut wont to chapel
the other morning. After this, ho will
go right along. EIo sat on tho oast side
of the gallery ; and during tho opening
piano number, ho saw some very graco
sul Dolsarto exhibitions in tho back rows
below. Four young ladies arranged tho
hair of four others before tho daily selec
tion was read; and before tho prayer was
delivered, three moro graceful girls fol
lowed suit. Ten girls untied and tied
and coaxed and petted a dozen or moro
ribbons on ihe dresses of thoir adjacent
neighbors while a professor was reading
a Psalm. Throe very pretty littlo girls
lay back and rested in tho loving arms of
their friends. AH but, five girls in throe
different rows whispered and giggled
during all the service except tho singing;
then they all really sang. They wore so
wondrous happy in thoir innocent pleas
ure that it seemed cruel to interrupt their
plny-timo with tho hymn and to abso
lutely bring it to a close with the "Anion."
There was a gradual lino of domark
ntion in behavior somewhere about the
midele of the chapel; but tho Special was
