A Lazy preacher.

--A popular preacher tells a good story as a hit at those kind of preachers who are too indolent to pursue the duties required of them by their faith. He says that one pious gentleman composed a fervent prayer to the Almighty, wrote it legibly, and affixed the manuscript to his bed post. Then on cold nights merely pointed to the document, and with the words, ‘"O Lord! them's my sentiments!"’ blew out the light, and nestled amid the blankets.
