THE ORIGIN OF SCANDAILL
8aid Mrs. A.
To Mrs. J.,
In quite a confidential way,
"It seems to me
That Mrs. B.
' Takes too much-somethingin her tea."
And Mrs. J.
To Mrs. K.
That night was overheard to say,
She grieved to touch.
Upon it much,
But "Mrs. B. took-such and such."
Then Mrs. C.
Went straight away
And told a friend, the self same day,
'Twas sad to think"
Here came a wink
"That Mrs. B. was fond of drink."
The friend's disgust
Was such she must
Inform a lady "which she nussed,"
"That Mrs. B.,
At half-past three,
Was that far gone she couldn't see."
This lady we
Have mentioned, she
Gave needle-work to Mrs. B.,
And at such news
Could scarcely choose
But further needle-work refuse,
Then Mrs. B.,
As you'll agree,
Quite properly-she said, said she,
That she would track
The scandal back
To those who made her look so black,
Through Mrs. K.
And Mrs. J.
She got at last to Mrs. A.,
And asked her why,
With cruel lie
She painted her so deep a dye t
Said Mrs. A.
In some dismay,
"I ao such thing could ever say.
I said that you
Much stouter grew
On too much sugar-which you do."
The temperance wave which has
swept over the country in the last
few years, partieulary in the West
and Northwest, while it may not
have won any decided political vic
tories, has had an extraordinary ef
fect on the consumption of whisky.
Six years ago the people of the Uni
ted States drank five gallons of
whiskey per capita; to-day they do
not drink over' two. in the last
sixty years the production of spirits
has not grown as rapidly as the
population; the use of alcohol in
the arts has increased enormously,
and the consumption per adult for
drinking purposes is probably much
less than half what it was two gen
erations ago. With three times the
population when this contry had in
18840, we actually drink no more
whisky. As compared with 1807
the showing is equally favorable,
for though the population has in
creased, the production and con
sumption of liquor have not, proved
that much good has been done in
the past kecade.
A temperance leader attributes
this result to two equal causes, the
temperance agitation and the prog.
ress of beer-drinking. What ever
its cause, however, incalculable
misery has been saved by the
change. It is to the credit of the
American people that they should
have so peacefully and quietly ac
complished this great moral change
-a parallel for which may be
sought in vain the world over.
-WHiNr lemons are cheap it is
prudent to lay in a good store of
them, as they will keep well by
running a fine string through the
the nib at the end and hanging
them up in a dry place, taking care
that they 4o not touch each ether.

BOB BTBDETTE EXPLAINS WHY Sun
She meetheth her son-in-law at
tfle door when the new olock tolleth
fourteen, and he essayeth to let
himself into the hall by unlocking
the front gate with his watch key.
And for this, oft times, he feareth
her. She knoweth his ways and
his tricks are not new unto her.
She is up to all his excuses, and
when he sayeth he was detained
down at the bank until the next
morning; or that the last car had
gone, and he had to walk.; or that
he was sitting up with a sick friend;
or that he was looking for his col
la button ; or that he was drawn on
the jury; or that he had joined the
astronomy class; or that his books
wouldn't balance ;-then doth she
get unto him with both feet, for she ,
sayeth within herself-"All these
things hath his father-ln-law said
unto me for these many years. Lo,
this is also vanity and vexation of
spirit." And for this he feareth her
yet more and more.
Why, what this country needs, to
keep it from going to the bow
wows, is a few more mothers-in-law
of the good, old-fashioned school, to
stand between young housekeepers
and a greedy world. A home with
out a mother in-law is a home with
out its guardian angel. There nev
er was but one home estallished
without a mother-in-law. And that
seems to have been a mistake.-"
That mother-in-lawless home walk
ed right into trouble, as the sparks
fly upward. It went right out into
the orchard and ordered fruit. for
two, and got all the rest of us into
more trouble than all the good mo
thers-in law of to-day can ever get
us out of. Away with all this out
rageous abuse of the mother-in
law. Have you no sense of grati
tude, young mn ? Do you love..'
your wife? Oh, most devotedlyA.._-.
Well, then, where would you have :
got your wife had it not been for
your mother-in-law? And anolhbr
thing, young man. Some day, when
you are saying emnart things about
your mother-in-law, sit down and
fasten the lackle of your brilliant.
intellect upon the subject, and do
not let go of it until you have :
calmly, honestly, impartially stu
died the question in all its bear
ingst: "My wife-how about her'
mother-in law?" - [Burlington
