Ebenezer SnillKath of Bets- congregation at present, and it all goes to show that pne should not be too forward in the good work of smiting smit-ing the wicked. It is all right to smite the wicked, for; that is all the wicked are good for, but any one desiring to smite should b" careful not to pick -out a wicked that will smite back. When Purdoas Three King Circus and Unrnentioably Great Menagerie was In. town aDtVit a month ago, it happened to be here on Thtirsdayrand Rev. Ebenezer was greatly angered to find bat when -he-opened jfray PT-meeting PT-meeting that night he had the meeting -efltirely7to himself, and he decided that as the Egyptians so to speak had spoiled his meeting, he would wreak vengeance on them and spoil the Egyptians. As the circus bad move.d on to nillingsville that night. Rev. Ebenezer harnessed -up 'hl mare Rebecca, and drove over, and on the way over he made, up his mind how he would spoil the Egyptians. Rev. Mr. Spillgath is noted In, thin county as one of the most progressiva and slick horse traders on earth, and he decided he would spoil the Egyp- ttms In a horse trade. He was . m.lH aware, at that time, he says, that t.he Egyptians were Just, spoiling to be polled. - -7 ' When Rev.

Ebenezer ; had paused the beast to act in this Btrange way. By daylight he decided that Bome word said in the presence of the horse must haves been a signal for the act, and he proceeded to the ham and repeated re-peated to the horse, as nearly as. possible, pos-sible, what he had said to Alderman Bud Winters. Nothing worth chronicling chroni-cling happened, and -with a sad heart Rev. Ebenezer harnessed the upright horse and went his way. - At the corner of. Main and Cross streets he met a large body of citi-zensaJL citi-zensaJL . much lntefested, among whom was Alderman Bud Winters, -ml resuming the discussion Of the day before, Alderman Winters expressed ex-pressed himself in his usual free, and profane way. In the midst of the dis usslon Moses suddenly up ended himself, him-self, with his rear legs in the air. and and stood on his front hoofs.. In vain did Rev Ebenezer speak to the brute; he was compelled at last to jjntinue his rounds with . Moses walking on his fore feet. That' night, and six nights thereafter, Moses slept in his stall with his rear roofs against the rafters, and whenever Rev. Ebenezer went for a-drive1 he was followed by a horde of interested parties. It was -very annoying. S'oihing that Rev. Ebenezer could do seemed" rro have any effect"on Good at a Clixu.
