"Mark Twain" has never told a tale
with his pen with the effect, in point
of either humor or pathos, or vigor and
felicity of diction that he imparts to the
tale he tells by word of mouth. The
anecdotes related Induce a strong desire
for the honor of his acquaintance. He
loves and he hates with fervor and
he expresses both to the great satis
faction of emotional people possessed
of a deviL This is the way he replies to
a frjend who had informed him of a
piece of 111 luck that had befallen a
person who had been his special antip
athy: "I am more than charmed to hear
of it; still. It does not do me half the
good it could have done if It had come
sooner. My malignity has so worn
out and wasted away with time and the
exercise of charity that even his death
would not afford me anything more
than a mere fleeting ecstasy, a sort of
momentary pleasurable titillation now
unless, of course, it happened in some
peculiarly radiant way, like burning,
or boiling, or something like that.
Joys that come to us after the capacity
for enjoyment is dead are but an
affront." Of course this has nothing
of the chastened Christian spirit in it.
It Is the Old Testament, "eye for an
eye and a tooth for a tooth" doctrine
that all of us subscribe to when our
cheeks are aflame with a new slap.
The vindlctiveness of the extract is
softened by humor, but there Is no
doubt that the party who had met
-with misfortune is unpopular with the
Twain family.
When he came back with his bride
from their wedding journey he was re
ceived by his new relatives in an ele
gant house, brilliantly lighted and
handsomely furnished. Mark supposed
it was a reception in somebody's house.
His wife finally said: "It's our house-

could not be purchased by a poor man.
It seems too bad that Mr. Currie
should work on this statue so long
and receive nothing for it excepting
the appreciation of newspapers which,
after all, is not the reward an artist
most covets. The people would be
willing when the statue is set up to
let Mr. Cqrrie build an ornamental
shed about it and charge those who
wish to see it 10 cents. In this way he
might receive some little reward for
his faithful labor and the people would
be spared much suffering.

Church members are in the habit of
declaiming on the free and enlightened
condition of women in Christian coun
tries and ascribing feminine liberty
and intelligence to the unselfish cul
ture of the church. It may be so, but
there are several historical instances
wherein church members, beginning
with St. Paul, have denied ordinary
rights to women. The church is al
ways slow to acknowledge progress.
The world moves, the church stands
still for long periods, piously sure that
repose Is best. Occasionally some
thing inside or outside of it shakes It
and It gasps and moves a trifle. If it
were not for these disturbances the
Methodist conference would be more
or less peacefully discussing parish
matters at the present time. There la
