Tho Prinoe, a jolly easy-gnlDg man, _omeilmes goes to church, but that is not often. His Sunday mornings In town i»re spent prlnolps'ly In bed and io answering correspondence. Io the after, noon he frequently goes for a walk or a dilve, and; later on m the day has a round of visits to p*y. It happens now and then again thfct he goes out to dinner, where his host cr ho.<e 8, as th. ciso may be, amuses him with • sins-log concert, tableaux vivsnts, or similar light amusements, and It la whispered pretty widely that a select wblit party frequently winds up tha evening. Now, this ll aU ga-1 ahd wormwood to the Reverend Charles, and be thicks It ls good tims that the Fries 3 thould forsake the evil tenor of bis ways and become convertedHo* to accomplish this good and meful ■work Is a matter of somo difficulty ; but the rev gentleman has made a start. He has fn hh vast tabernaole ln Newlngton Butts been offering earnest prayers for tba conversion of the Prince. Thu congregation wero last Sunday invited to john ftheir prayers In unison with their pastor s fo** t*e iams laudable orj.ot.
