The course of churcli affairs, like the course of true love, seems destined not to run smoothly at Willowbrook. A new complication has arisen since our memorable donation party—a complication which bids fair to end ill the withdrawal of the new minister, Mr. Ormsby’s successor, a staid baoJielor of doubtful ajrc. It had been decided that the churcli needed painting, and to this end a peach festival was suggested and agreed upon with great unanimity. Much to my own regret, I was absent from the village at the time of tho festival, so as soon as possible after my return I ran over to sec Miss Melissa, feeling confident that I should find her, as usual, a faithful chronicler, nor was I disappointed. A few r|ucstious soon brought out the whole stoiy. “It was too bad, as you sav’, Miss Harwood, that you couldn't have been here, but law! the festival was a terrible disap vointment, after all, for we didn't make anytliing to signify. 1 could liave told ’em so bcforeliand, for I knew just how it would turn out when those girls took the maiiagc-mciit instead of lettin’ Aunt Betsy and me be at the head, as w e’d always been used to doin’. “It’s no wonder we felt kinder hurt alwut it, for I don’t remember a death or a weddiii’ or a christenin’ in the village that we hadn’t had our say about in time past, and to sec ourselves made ot no account in that way was enough to prevoke a saint . “Of course I knew it was all done for Mr. Allen’s sake—tliat comes of having a bacheler for a minister, Miss Harwood—though why girls should want to set their caps for a man old enough to be their father I can’t uii-dci*stand. If Mr. Allen wanted a wife (and it’s my opinion that every minister does want a wife to look after him) he ought to have had a chance to choose for himself among those that was suitable, and jjoiHlncss knows there ain’t many to pick from in this vlllagcl But instid of Icttlu’ the man alone those girls have acted shameful from the very firstr-goin’ rcg’lar to Sunday-school and siugiu’ class and what’ not, and stoppin’ every day to a.sk about Miss Bnico’s aick child jest bi'CAUse the minister was lioardin’ there—no, 1 never saw sccli forwardness in my life. And be (men is such fools) took it all for pure goo<l-iiess! DiduH I hear him a t^kiii’ one night at I>eaeoii Stiles’ about‘the sympalliies of young hearts,’ and ‘the sweet mission of the fair comforters,’ and all the time I was sciidin’ jelly and soft custard to the house, and Miss Bruce too ungrateful to meutiou it again! “But this ain’t neither here nor there, 80 I must jest git back to the peach festival. It was mostljr settled before you went away, Miss Harwood, that we was to hold it in the schoollionse, because some of us thought that mebbc it wasn’t solemn enough to hold in the church, but af-tei^vards we had a meetin’, and agreed to take up the carpets and take out the |>e\v cushions, and so have it in the ohnreh after all. “It was held on tho last Thurstlay in August, you know, and cveiy one was to send a cake or ice cream or peaches, aecordlu’ to their ability, and we kalkilafed to make considerable on the sclliu’, as we should, if Aunt Betsey and me liad been let uluiic. “But when 1 went over to the church that Thursday moriiiii’ to go to work, there was Sally Stiles, and Lyddy Hall, and the two Davis girls, and tiiat rcd-hcadcd ’Miry Junes and her cousin Maiidy all there ahead of me swcepin’ and dustin, and moviii’ things round as if they was tho head of the church ihcryselvcs. Wlisa 1 began to tell ’em wliut to do, Lyddy Hall jest laughs and says, says she; ‘You iiecdu't trouble yourself, Miss Melissa, we young folks will take charge and let the old folks rest a spell.’ (That girl thinks everyboily’s old but herself!) Sure enough, they wouldn’t let me have a thing to say about settiu’tho talile, and they each had a big rosctlu made to pin on their shoulders! (ireatinan agin’ they made, to be sure. How ever, I made ’em know 1 wouldn't give up the lea and coffee, so Lyddy saya; ‘Well, tlien, you can help un pack the disltes if you like, and Aunt Betsy may dust ’em o(f.’ That to me! “Just then Aunt Betsy come in, and I can tell you, Misi llarwuiHl, it wa alt that we couhl do to keep thiiigx and began to t.alk eo fast|that no one the little finger of his left hand with else could get in a word edgcwavs.! ivs teeth. There has lieen considcra- get But when Mandy and ’Miry Jones and Lyddy Hall jined in I jest told ’em their reom was Ixittcr than their company, thinkiii’ they'd take the hint. Now you’d hardly guess what they did-—they wCnt and sot on the platlorm in front of the pulpit, takin’ the minister with ’em of course, and there they kept up«uch a laughin’ and a chatterin’as you never saw, pretendin’ to wait on Mr. Allen, bringin’ him plates of peaches and icc cream, cnimblin’ up good slices of cake and wastin’em,until I could have slapped every one of the six. “I got so nervous at last, wat chin’ their doiii’s, that I i>oured tea and cofi'ec into the same cup, and when our big dog. Growler, came crcepin’ in and put bis cold nose onto my band, I drepped a cup and saucer and broke it into twenty pieces. I told Growler to go out, but iiistid of mind-iu’ me he walked over and lay down at Mr. Allen’s feet, aud in a minute that Lyddy Hall screams out; ‘Sec there, Mr. Alien! Miss Mix has scut Growler to take care of you, aren't you obliged to her?’ and* I felt my face gittiu’ as red as fire, I was so mortified. “I think the minister was partly to blame for what happened next, though there’s no knowiii’, for those girls kcp’ on gittiu’ wilder and wilder every minute. But I saw him go and get a basket of cake ofl' of Aunt Betsy’s table, and then he took his seat again in the middle and begun to make believe eat all the cake himself. Jest as he sot there, with his head l>ent down over that cakc-basket, Sally Stiles puts out her baud aud twitches him by his back liair. “I saw her do it, the forward thing! hut I wasn’t no more prepared than she was for what came next. It was a sharp puli, and there was the minister with his head as bare aud shiny as an ivory ball! and there was Sally lookin’ ready to faint, with his wig in her hand! “Well, she gave one scream that blc talk in the neighborhood regard ing the recent deaths caused by hydrophobia. The matter was talked about ill Zctcr’s family. Sunday the man became alarmed. He imagined that lie was becoming rabid. Dr.. Goodall was sent lor. He cauterized the wound and took a look at tlic dog. The animal showed no aversion to water as a hcvcregc. He objected, however, when a large quantity of water was poured ou his back. Dr. Goodall came to the conclusion that the bite itself was not dangerous. He was afraid that Zeter would work himself into a frenzy in case he was not convinced that the dog was not mad. Tlic doctor consequently prescribed large doses of ridicule for the patient w’henever he suggested that the dog w as mad. The neighbors aud family of the milk dealer supplied the doctor’s prescription. Zcter i« now recovering. QUEEN R^N^^LONA III. How the New SoTeretgn of Madajcas-car Was Crowned. [AnUDanariro for.

The Queen’s body guard consisted of picked boys from the high schools. The idaiii about one thousand feet long by as many wide, is at the foot of the high hill on which stands the royal jialace, and as the voung Queen ajipeared on one of the iialconies of the palace, in full view of the multitude below, she was received with frantic entlmsiasm aud excitement, while at the same moment a salute of twenty-one guns announced to all that the first part of the important ceremony had taken The next part of the ceremony A l*«>|iiilni‘ I'Mllacjr.

Growler I    the    foreign    residents    were    in- didn t wait for no second invitation, vited to meet her. Her Majesty is described as quite young, of a most pleasing expression of countenance, singularly dignified aud latlylikc. Slie wore a dress of ivory satin, with much gold embroidery. When slie had taken her stand oil the stone, with the gold crown on her head, the Prime Minister called for a royal salute, hit kirn self kneeling before her with i manner iierfect in gallaiitiy; he is her wedded husband and old enough to 1m* her graiidfatlicr. Then a young Prince about seven years of age made a speech to tlie Queen, welcoming her to her kingdom. Her Majesty then proceeded to the plain of Imaham-asina, which was closely packwl with IKioplc; the hills to the north, south and east were also crowdcnl, and there could not have been fewer thuu half a million of iMiople present. The Queen was conducted to the Chair of State, on a small table by her side being a large, handsoinely bound Bible. A salute was fiitjd,and the whole ]M;oplc assembled shouted their welcome. After this tho Queen rose and addressed her jieoplc in a remarkably clear and sweet voice. She said briefly that she had succeeded to the throne, with all Its duties, which she engaged to fulfill ^ the jieople, oil their part, were to fulfill theirs. She had received the whole island—not part of it—its iKuiiidary was the ocean on all sides; not a bit of this would she give to any one—no, not the breadth of a hair; and woman though she was, she would be like a man in tbc defense of her kingdom. Tlien, turning to her )MK)plc, and stilklng the ground with her golden iwl of State, said, “Is this not so, O my iieople ?” Then came a mighty answer as of one voice from all these i>eop1e, “Izayl’’ “It Is so.” Aud then followed a scene baflliiig all description—the shouts of the jMHipIe, the clashing of siM'ars and shields, the firing of cannon in vhiIuun jilaces among the crowd, while prc-ciw-Iy at the same moment several vivid flashes of lightning in the far west lent a still more impressive air. Her Majesty went on to say that the foreigners who were “tsaru lihovaniina’’ —on friendly relations—with them would be well treated, and, finally, she de« lurod that she only iiM'ognizod Jehovah as her Guil. Upon Him she also rested her kingdom,'and the fear of Him was the hegiiiiiingof wisdom. Tlic representatives ot the various irllies then presented to the Queen a dollar ill token of ullegiaiu'e. and the I’liiiie Minister, who has been the husband of the two former Queens liaviim spoken, the ceremony came to ail end. Her Miiiesty aflciwaid eii-lertained the foreigners and many of her subjects at banquets. he sprung up, took the wig in bis mouth and raced oft'as if he was mad, tossiii’ it and growlin’ as he w ent. Mr. Allen started after him, but the dog thought this was part of the play, so he M'cnt up one aisle and down the other, and then out of the door, and away as fast as his legs could carry him, and poor Mr. Allen behind. “Brother lialpli jumped up and made a grab, at the minister’s coattails, shoutin’ as loud as lie could —‘Stop! don’t run! the more you cliase him the further he’ll go,’ but t’waiit a bit of use—he jest ran on, and ill a minute they were both out of sight. Most of the young men started off ‘to see the fun,’ as they said, and as for that onlucky Sally Stiles, she fainted in good airiicst, which made more confusion. . ^ch a hubbub you never saw! everyone askin’ questions, and laiigli-in’, and tiie girls a boldin’ up Sally and spriiikUii’ her taee with cold water, and Miss Stiles cryiii’, for Sally’s fuintiu’ gave her acch a turn—and in the midst of it all most of tho small boys went aud heli>ed themselves to as iiiucli cake and Ice cream as they could git, aud all without payin’, either. “Aunt Betsy jiaw ’em first, aud made a grab at Johnny Evans, jest as .lie was dippin’ into the freezer, and somehow, between ’em they upset the coffee kittle, and it streamed all ^ovcr everything. “Well, that was the fiiiishin’ touch —wo never sold another peuuy’s worth that night—and at last, scein’ tliat folks was hcginniii’ to go, Amos I lull proi>oscd to auction ofi the hull lot for us. “But Aunt Betsy said, and I agreed with her, that we better save the cake fur the Sunday picnic, and give it a chance to dry, for things was mostly suppin’ wet witli the coffee, and 1 knew well enough Amos wouhi jest make a lot of fuii and then knock tlic hull down to’Mtndv Jones; he’s al ways so sweet uimiii her. “So wo broke up right off, three or four of us slaying to clear up the muss,of course, aud count the money, and little there was to count,lean tell you.

How He Pulls Teeth and Attends to Alimenta. [New York Sun.| Foriiiijig a group in a dingy room were a bald-headed man, wearing him spectacles, with a fringe of whiskers around his face, a snarling, shaggy-haired dog and an elegantly dressed woman who looked as if she might cry. On shelves and tables were stufi'ed dogs, birds and queer looking animals. On a hcncli at the man’s side were half a dozen jiairs of forceps aud a lot of dental instruments. “Please, please, don’t hurt Dot any more than you cau help,” the lady lilcaded, tearfully. “Not for a moment, mum,” the man said, as he pressed the dog’s body between his knees and violently yanked o]K5n its mouth. “I’ll be as gentle as possible with him,” He picked up one of the forceps and pulled out one of Dot’s teeth, scraped the other teeth with an iu-struniciit that looked like a nut }>ick and lanced the gums. As soon as Dot reached the floor he took a firm seat oil his hauuchos, braced his feet, i-aised his head and howled dismallv. The lady picked him up in her arms and shed tears.of sympathy. ‘‘He'll be all riglit iiow', mum,” the dog doctor said, as he jiocketed a crisp $10 note and ojKined the door for the lady to pass out. “His teetli’s ill good Older now, aud he wont sutler with his gums.” “I often pull out dog’s teeth,” he explained to the rc|K)i’ter who had 1m!cii watching tlie treatment of Dot, “and more often I scrajic and clean ’em up. I du more of it nowadays than 1 did thirty years ago, when I first began dog doctoring. It’s more fasbioiiabic lor ladies to keep dogs tlian it used to be. Dogs is like little cliildreii—I mean little lapdop. They eats too much sweets, and their teeth gets had, and when their teeth gets bad, why they’ve got to be fixed; so what does I do a few years ago but prints on my cards ‘Dog Dentistry.’ It has brought ino lots of customers. Y'ou ought to sec tho carriages that the ladies often e/>ine in, and the diamonds they wear almost bliju])^ me. They don’t seem to care for motioy much so loug as their dogs is fixed all right. And then they watch me like a cat watches a mouse while I’m at work at the dog’s mouth, and if I ain’t as gentle as a kitten, why they goes for me like a whirlwind.” “Do you ever fill dogs’ teeth ?” “1 never did that, although a loay once wanted me to fill a ]M)t pug’s teeth with gold. I told her that 1 could not do it, aud although she was a regular customer, she went right away and never came near the shop any more.” “What dogs are generally brought to you for treatiiiciit ?” ‘‘Pugs, spaniels and Scotch and Skvo terriers. Black-aiid-tans used to be well thought of, but nowadays ladies don’t seem to care for them much. According to iiiy notions, the best jict dog of all is a cross between an Italian greyhound aud a blacK-and-tan. They are the bcstv watch dogs, too. That reminds me of something which hapiieniMl when I first began dog-diM'toriiig. BoinelMxly brought nic a dog of that breed to treat. I concluded that it needed a dose of medicine, and tried to force sonic down its tliroat. It was no go. The dog bit me half a dozen times and upset seven doses of mcilicinc. 1 lireiMiictl another dose, put it on tho floor and sat down to get wind for another attempt. Just think how surprÍM*d I was when the dog walks up to where 1 left the medicine and licks it up, us if it was fund of it.” “Do you wt dogs broken hones?” “Often. I’ve done lots of queer things with uiiimuls. Oiieu I put u glass eyo in a dog.” “How did you linpiK*ii to do that?” “A lady eustomer had a dog ami a cat which (lidii’lagree very well, aud one day while she was out tiiey fought, and the dog lost an eye. ‘Did vou ever put u glass eye in a dog ?’says she tome one day. ‘No, mum,’ says I, ‘and I never heard tell of siK'h a thing.’ ‘Uaii ii be done?' ^ays ^he. ‘Almost un\ thing cun be done,’says I. ‘Weil, then,” says she. I want you to have a giuss eve made bu- lleiiVy.’ Henry was tho name of her dog. Ho I had to take the dog to a iiiaii who made gla^>í eyes, for om Notliing unusual was found until the searchers entered her ajiartmciit, where, on pulling out the drawers ofl a biire-iu, they found a miuiber of purses filled with bills. Bills were found in lier trunk jiinned to the linings of her die>>es, and also gold amounting to $bt>8 iir Eiiglisli sovereigns. Together with the bills the aiiioiiiU found was $2,-.‘ItíS. The sean'hers were aliout to leave the apartiiieiit when >Ir. Pow-rie, one of the party', felt some hard liiiiiiis in the bed, and, riiijiiiig the tick open with a knife, lie jnilled out bag after bag of silver, which were thrown into a basket, ami when all was extracted there was as much as one could lift. The money was taken to (lie village anda queer variety' of coins were disjilayed. There were old Mexican and Spanish coins not circulated iu Canada for over forty y'cars. When all the money was counted it was found that she was worth aiioiit $ló,üüO. Most of this fortune will go to Joliii McWean, a cousin of the old lady, who came from Scotland about a vearago.
