Called to Church in Michigan--misses train!
The Rev. Abram Conklin, who was recently callod to tho UniversaliBt Church, in East Sftgi naw, Mich., has beon on a visit to that city. Ono of tho local papors of the lumber region city published tho following paragraph on Mr. Conklin'a oxperiohco: "Rev. Abram Conklin and S. H. Bob - lin, of the Univorsalist churches of this and Bay City, had an oxperionco yesterday not usually down on their daily calondar, but which in tha light of past events thoy can now afford to laugh at. It apDears that arrangements wero mado for a special train from Bay City to leave for thia Metropolis at 0:15 yoBtorday morning, on which both the gentlemen mentioned, to gether with Borne sovonty members of Mr. Rob lin's Chnrch, woro to travel. Owing to a misapprehension the pastors missed the train, and whilo two congregations awaited their ministrations up here they woro looking around vainly for means of transit to Saginaw. With their usual courtoBy and consideration, somo of the F. and P. M. officials, hearing of their peculiar position, hitched on a car to tho yard engine and brought them up flying, both reaching tha church breathless and considerably flushed some fif toon minutes late, much to tho astonishment of the church full of auditors, who were afterward rewarded by an eloquent address from their uow shephord, as amendB for tho delay."
