In due course the son obtained a living, and was very anxious that his lather sihoull preach in his church. After much persuasion the canon consented and the vicar was delight ed. But hlsl joy was short-lived, for when the old man gave out his text. it ran, "lord, have mercy ulpon Inm son, for he is a ilunatic."

With the former lie had not been able to work agreeably, and on being olffered another living, lie ac cepted it, and took the young curato with him.
