Rev. M.N. Stoltz, Pastor of the M.E. Church at Crown Point, took the longest way around to reach the Ministerial Association last week. He started right, but for reasons given below, changed direction and went by way of Chicago. Taking the train at Crown Point, he in due time reached Lacross, the New Albany crossing, where he was compelled to wait for the train going north on the other road. It came, and after assisting a lady to get on, Mr. S. noticed that the car next back was a much finer one, and being a firm believer in always appropriating the best of everything, he took up his satchel and, walking back, entered the car. As it was empty, he congratulated himself in securing a good seat and patiently waited the start. Looking out at last, he saw the train fast disappearing and himself switched off. -- Valparaiso Vidette.
