As au ilhistration of thisweakuess he inentionecl that during one of his pastoral visits he entered a cottage of one of the supposed delinqneuts, where he fonnd everything ueat and clean, aud, what was more, a large platefnl of buttered toast before the fire. "Yes," ho repeated emphatially, "buttered toast! Did that, " he asked, "look like want?" In thé brief pause that followed this outburst of energy a voice iudignautly responded, "No, 'tweern't bntter ueither; 'twere drippin.
