MONDAY, APHIL 30, 188.1.
A PROVIDENT ENGLISHMAN.
An affable, though somowlml desic
cated, American was on his way, the
other day, to the city of Boston,
lie had, with that thrifty forethought
of his nation, bucured ii lower berth,
and was meditating upon the wisdom
of gathering Ills body behind the cur
tains wjlten he was accosted by nn
KngUshmnnJn a tweed suit. The
Englishman was of an ample presence,
and had the air of one who had been
pusttircd on mutton chops all his life.
"You will excuse mo," said he of
the tweed Hiiit, "but am I right in
supposing that von have the lower
"You bet your life," replied the
"My sister," wild the owner of the
tweed suit, "has the upper berth,
which is deuced awkward, you know.
The fact is," added the Englishman,
with frank urbanity, "it's unplcstsant
for ladies to climb up past a man in
a lower berth. Now, might I ask
you, sir, to do me the extreme favor
of occupying the upper berth and
permitting my sister to take your's?"
The request was scarcely preferred

American was astonished to ,ec a
pair of tweed legs emerge from a
lower berth opposite that which he
had politely given up, and the next
moment the adipose upper extremi
ties of the Englishman.
"Say," said the American, as nn
air of grave disgust began to creep
over his astonished physiognomy,
"didn't. you ask mo to give up my
lower berth to your sister?"
"Certainly, my dear fellow," re
plied the gentleman addressed,
"hope you slept well?"
" And you had a lower berth?"
"And then you got me to give up
mine to your sister, sir?"
"Why, my dear fellow," said the
Englishman, in his turn, "you didn't
expect I'd gave up a lower berth to
my own sister, did you?" Toronto
" So far as the clioicp of death is
concerned," s.rid Dr. Collyer in his
Sunday sermon, "we arc all like the
poor fellow who preferred to be hung
