There was a painter by the name of Jock, who was very interested in making a penny where he could, so he often would thin his paint to make it go further.
As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but eventually the Church decided to do a big restoration job that involved the painting of one of its biggest churches.
He went about erecting the trestles and setting up the planks, and buying the paint and, yes, thinning it down with the turpentine. Jock was up on the scaffolding, painting away with the job nearly completed, when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder, and the sky opened.
The torrential rain washed the thinned paint off the church and knocked Jock off the scaffold and on to the lawn.
Jock was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty, so he got on his knees and cried: "Oh, God! Forgive me! What should I do?"And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke...Repaint! Repaint!
And thin no more!
A Day in the Country.
The Ladies Aid Society of the Westminster church spent yesterday in the country at the hospitable home of Mr. and Mrs. I. C. Campbell seven miles northeast of town. There were fifteen ladies present. The dinner was an elaborate affair, after which quite a musical programme was enjoyed.
Mrs. Campbell presented the society a handsome quilt, which the ladies appreciated. The day was not wholly given up to recreation but numerous plans were proposed and discussed looking to the advancement of the church. At a late hour the ladies reluctantly took their leave.
A pretty water spaniel was humiliated this afternoon by chasing across the east side of the square with a tin can dangling to its tail.
