Just the Reverse. A kind-hearted and witty clergyman, entering the house of one of his el ders one morning found the good old man unmercifully whipping o.>e of his sons, a lad *ibri't fourteen ycsrs old, and he at once 'je<an to intercrde for the hoy. The deacon defended himself by saying that "the youth must be early trained in the way he should go. It is best to make an impression when the wax is soft" "Yes," said the pastor, "but that does not hold here for ihe whaciis were not soft." The deacon let the boy go.
