A Lot of Little Stories That Make
There Is, says a London religious paper,
a man in the north of England, who is by
the common consent of all his friends
awarded a title, that of ,-Slr." It came to
him in a curius way. One day a new
teacher came to the school where this
man, when a youth, was receiving Instruc
tion, and the boy was the lirst of whom the
teacher asked the question, "What is your
"John Wilson," replied tho lad.
"Sir," said the teacher, ndmonlshingly.
The boy only looked stupid. He did
not know what the teacher meant, for the
buys of that school hud never been taught
to address their masters as "sir."
"You must always say 'sir' when you
address me in the future, boy," thundered
the master. "And now again, what is your
"Sir John Wilson!" answered tho boy,
The teacher was unable to refrain from
Joining in the laugh which followed; and
from that day to this the boy has been
known as "Sir John Wilson." His mistuko
was almost as good to him as a royal pat

HER INTRODUCTION TO OPERA
This Is a story that Charles Henry Webb
tells of a. Western experience of his. He
happened to meet an old acquaintance In
San Francisco a few years ago, und as
there was grand opera in the city Just
then, Mr. Webb took the young daughter
of his friend to hear "Faust." The girl
was Just out of a convent and had never
been In a theater in all her life before. As
the curtain rose Mr. Weng handed her a
pair of opera glasses. The girl looked at
them for a moment. The she raised tbem
to her dainty nose, sniffing at llrst one
side and then the other.
"Why," she said, as she handed the
lorgnette back to her companion, "you
ain't got any salts in them." Washing
A TERRIBLE RECORD.
Members of parliamentary bodies some,

the retiring , moderator, preached thu
opening sermon from the text found in
Acts, vlll, 35: "Then Philip opened his

Rev. E. L. Miller has Invented an
"envelograph" system for making
church contributions. This offering
envelope has a flap as long as the body
of the envelope, fastened by a fixed
rubber band, and thus the offering ac
count is in no way exposed. An of
fering envelope case is placed at the
entrance of the church, in which the
envelopes are kept in alphabetical or
numerical order, and each contributor
thus finds his envelope always In the
same compartment. The case Is open,
under official oversight, during public
services, and at all other times it is
kept locked. Blank spaces are sup
plied for entering the regular Lord's
day offerings for current expenses, and
for offerings for general beneficence,
special funds, .etc. The use of the of
fering envelope Is simplicity Itself. On
entering tha church each contributor
takes his envelope from the case, and,
having carefully enclosed his offering,
places the same upon tho plate when
the offerings are gathered. The finan
cial secretary receives the envelopes
after the service and enters the amount
of the offerings in the proper spaces
provided. He then returns the en
velopes to their place In the case.
