People of the congregation tittered and
"moggereed"' at AO awful rate The decc l
sunsethe itast assemblage, however, was,
upset by a large, red-faced. good-looking
gentleman who sat a few feet from me,
and very much like a Southern man. He
laughed until the tears- tolled from hie
eyes, but managed generally to prevent
any very large explosion of merriment.
Soddenly, however, Mr, Beecher let off an
anecdote of a parson, whose murder a
grieving congregation deplored, because
"the bullet of the assassin made a bole in
the defunct minister's vestments, and oth
erwise greatly damaged what might have
otherwise been Wield to his successors."
The anecdote did not strike — me saveri

have been heard a mile., It reverberated
thronghrthe church like a trumpet. and
was of course infectious. and a mighty
laugh went np from four thousand people.
Mr. Beecher waited for the merriment to
subside, and then let ore number of otber
funny things.' The comic part of the en
tertainment lasted for at least thirty min
utes, and was intensely enjoyed. Every
one felt that Mr. Beecher had done a lib-
eral thing in getting up a first class come
dy, free of charge, to his auditors.
I was struck with the significant fact
that there was not a negro in the church

are all afflicted with "negro on the brain."
