MR. PEPPER'S WIPE.
"Sirs. Popjior, I labor under tho Im
pression tlmt It is high thnu you wore
getting breakfast. As tny former house
keener understood nil my wishea la re
gard to these things, I found it unneces
sary to give any orders rcsnoeling them;
but with you it Is different. As youhavo
never got a mcnl in this house, of course
you know nothing of tho regulations of

then you will make a flro in horo. That
dono, you will cook tho breakfast and
brine; It in here, as I havo always been
accustomed to taking mino in bed, and
do not consider it necessary to depart
fiom that custom on your account; but
should you prefer it, vou can cat yours

This occurred tho morning after Mrs.
Topper went to housekeeping. Mrs.
Pepper was a sonsihlo woman sho miulo
no reply to Mr. Pepper's commands, but
lis soon os her toilet was Unishcd she left
tho room, and sitting down in tho kitchen
Alio thus ruminated:
"Mako tho kitchen flfol Yes, I'll do
that. Then mako a Are in tho bcdrooml
I'll sco to that, too. Then tnku the break
fast to his bedside! Just sco If I dol"
And then Mrs. Pepper sat and thought
deeply for a few minutes, when, ap
parently having arrived at a satisfactory
conclusion, sho proceeded to business.
Having got n nlco flro kindled in tho
kitchen she curriod some coal into Mr.
P.'s apartment nnd filled up hla stove,
having first ascertained that tlicro was
not n spark of flro in it. That duty per
formed, sho next prepared tho breakfast,
of which sho partook with a great relish,
nnd after matters and things woro nil set
to rights In tho kitchen sho went down
town on n shopping excursion.
iMcanwhilo Mr. Popper began to grow
impatient. Ho "lnborcd under tho im
pression" that tho ntmospherb of his
room did not prow warm very fast, and
he began to feol Unpleasantly hungry.
Pcoping out from behind tho bed cur
tains, ho saw how affairs were with re
gard to tho stove. Something like a sus
picion of tho real stato of affairs began to
dawn on his mind. He listened for a
few minutes, but all was still about tho
Hastily dressing himself ho proceeded
to investlgato tho nffair. Ho soon com
prehended tho wholo of it, and was very
wrathful at fir$t; but ho comforted him
self with tho reflection that ho had tho
power to punish Mrs. P., and ho felt
bound to do it, too. After somo search
ho found tho remains of tho breakfast, of
which ho partook with a gusto, and then
ho sat down to wait for Mrs. P. Sho was
a long tlmo coining, and ho had ample
limo to nurso his wrath. AVhllo sitting
there ho thus soliloquized:
"That over I, Philander Topper, should
bo bo treated, and by a womnn, too, is
not to bo bollovcd. I can't bcllovo It;
no, nor I won't, either. But sho shan't
escape, that's certain; If sho should my
reputation for dignity would bo forever
gono; for haven't I told Solomon Simple
ton all along how I was going to mako
my wifo stand around, and liow I was
going to mako her get up and mako tho
11 ro every morning and lot mo lio abed,
and how I was going to shut her up and
feed her on bread and wntcr if sho dared
to say sho wouldn't do it."
"A cosy littlo arrangement, Mr. Pep
per," said a soft voice behind him. Mr.
P. started up, and there stood Mrs. P.
right behind his chair, laughlug just as
hard as she could. Mr. Pepper put on a
"Sit down in that chair, madam," ho
said, pointing to tho one ho just vacated,
"while I havo a littlo conversation with
"Now, I should bo pleased to know
why you did not obey my orders this
morning, and where you havo been all
"Vhcro I havo been all this forenoon,
Mr. Pepper, 1 havo not tho least objec
tion to toll you; I havo been down town
doing a littlo shopping. I havo pur
chased somo lovely napkins; just look
nt them," said she, holding them up de
murely for his inspection; "I only paid a
dollar apiece for them oxtromoly cheap,
don't you think so?" sho added.
Mr. Pepper was astonished; how sho
dared to turn tho conversation in this
way was a mystery to him. Suddenly
his bottled wrath broke loose. Turning
Uercoly upon hor ho said:
"Betsy Jane, you disgust me; you
seem to mako very light of this matter;
but it Is mora serious thnn you imngino,
us you will And to your cost piesently.
If you do not Instantly beg my pardon
in "a submisslvo manner. I Bliall oxcrt
my authority to bring you to a pronor
sense of your misconduct by imprisoning
you in ono of my chambers until you nro
willing to promlso strict obedience to my
At tho closo of this very eloquont and
dignified speech, Mr. Pepper drow him
self up to his full hoight und stationed
himself before Mrs. P., ready to rccolvo
expressions of sorrow and penitenco; he
had no doubt that sho would fall down
at his fed and say:
"Dear Philander, won't you pleaso
foruivo mo this time, and I'll never do so
And ho wts going to sny, "Betsy
Jano, you'd better not," but instead of
doing nil this, what do vou think ho did?
Laughed him right in tho facol
Mr. Pepper was awful wrathy. Ho
spoko up in a voico of thunder, and
"Mrs. Pepper, walk right up stairs this
very miuiito, and don't let tho grass grow
under your fcot while you nro going,
neither. You havo begun your antics in
good season, Mrs. I'oppor, but I'll havo
you to know that it won't pay for you to
continuo them for any length of tlmo
with mo, Mrs. Pepper. Again I command
you to walk up stairs."
'Well, really, Mr. P., it is not at all
necessary for you to speak so loudI am
not so deaf as all that comes to; but us
for walking upstairs I hnvo not tho least
objection to doing so, If you will wait un
til I havo rccovored from my fntliruojbut
I can't think of doing so boforo."
"But you must, Mrs. P."
"Thnn all I've" got to say is this, you'll
havo to carry mo, for I won't walk,"
Mr. P. looked nt his wifo for a moment
with tho greatest astonishment; but ns
sho boguu to laugh at him again, lie
thought to htmsolf
"liho thinks I won't do il, and hopes
to get oil' in that way; but It won't doj
up utulm she's got to go, if I do have to
ciry her; so hero goes," and taking tho
torn of his Indy in his arms, ho soon had
thl satisfaction of seeing her snfely
jouijd in her prison, nnd carefully lock
iBcr In, ho stationed n littlo red-headed
yoiA on tho front door stops to attend
to cuicrs, and also to sco that Mrs, P.
did lit escape, and then ho betook him
self tdi restaurant for dinner, and. after
dispattiing that, ho hurried oil to his
ofllco id was soon engrossed in busi
ness. Ahouljho mlddlo of tho afternoon our
youug satiric! rushed Into tho olllco nnd

then I don't Uw what splitting be I "
Without wnting to hear more, Mr. P.
seized his hntuid hurried off homo at a
most undlgnllM pace.
Opening the Tail door ho stolo up stnlrs
as carefully as visible and applying his
cyo to tho kcyolo ho behold a sight
which fairly inml, him boll with rnge.
Mrs. P. was slttug In front of tho fire
placu reading his Iwo letters. Tho ono
sho was engaged linjoruslng at that par
tlcular moment, wfo from Miss Polly
Primrose, who. It rtipearcd, had once
looked favorably on iio suit of Mr. Pep

But it was not tho lov letters alono
that mndo Mr.. P. so oUrngeous. He
had been something of n tnvelor in his
day and had collected a giet many cur
iosities in his rambles, whic't ho had de
posited in acupboard in tho worv room
whero he had confined Mrs. 1'.," nnd sho
got at them.
Sho had snlit un an elccrant tfpnk with
his Indian battlo ax In ordorto havo a
lire, ns tho day was rather clrlly. In
ono corner of tho llro place was Sir. P.'s
best beaver, filled up with .lovo loKers.
On a Binall table, clo3o to Mrs. ., was
a beautiful flat China dish, llllcdi with
bear's oil, in which sho had sunk' Mr.
P.'s best satin cravat, nnd having lred
ono end of it, it afforded her sullldeut
light for her lnbors for Mr. P. had clotcd

which Mrs. P. was nonrjimr corn, which
she ever and unon stirred with tho Addle-
bow, meanwhile, occasionally puuehing
up the llro with tho flddlo, for Mr. P.
had with commcndublo foresight, re
moved tho shovel nnd tongs.
Mr. P. condesconded to ncep through
tho keyhole until he had obtained a,
pretty correct idea of what was going on
within. Never was a pepper so fired as
he. Ho ordered Mrs. Pepper to open or
tako tho consequences; but as bIio did
not open it, it is to bo presumed that sho
proferred tho consequences. Mr. Pepper
darted down stairs hko a madman.
"I must put nstop to this," ho thought,
"or I shall not hnvo a rag to my back."
Procuring a ladder ho began to mount
to tho bedroom; but Mrs. P. was not to
bp taken so easily. Sho know ho had
left tho door unlocked, forshuhad oxum
incd it as soon as ho had left; but sho had
no Idea of letting him have tho benefit
of her Are, so hastily seizing sovcral
largo bottles of cologno, sho throw tlio
contents upon tho Are. and in n few min
utes had tho satisfaction of seeing It en
tirely extinguished. That duty per.
formed, sho left tho apartment, and lock
Ingfthe dppr, sho stationed herself in a
convenient position to hear everything
that transpired within.
In a few moments Mr. P. was safe in
tho apartment, and as soon as he had
closed tho window ho stood bolt upright
in tho middle of tho room and said in a
"Jozebel, como forth!"
"Jane, do you think to escapoT"
Still no response. Mr. P. bocins to
feel uneasy, and hastily to search tho
room, but had not proceeded far when ho
hears a slight titter somewhero in tho
vicinity of tho door. Ho listens a mo
ment nnd it is repeated. Darting to tho
door, ho attompts to open it, but he finds
himself n prisoner. 1 horo is ono moro
chanco, he thinks, and hurries to tho
window; but alas for Mr. Pcpperl his
wifo has just removed tho ladder and ho
Ho sits down on n chair and looks rue
ful ly around him, nnd presently ho arises
and picks up a few fragmonts of a letter
which Is lyinc on tho carpet and flnds it
from Polly Pfiinroso. Ho wonders what
sho has dono with tho lock of hair.
At this moment his oyo falls upon his
daguerreotype, which is lying on tho
tabio before liiin mechanically taking it
up, ho opens It, and sees what V nothing
but his own fnco. All tho rest of him
was rubbed oil, and around his lovely
phiz is tho missing curl, and tho walnut
meats nro carefully stowed in tho corner
of tho ensc. Mr. P. fairly blubbered
"Good 1" thought Mrs. P., " when you
find your level I'll lot you out, nnd not
till then. A littlo wholesome dlsclpllno
will do you good, and I'm fully prepared
to administer It."
