Jenkins gets his House Fainted.
MAIIIA ANN said wo must have the
house repaired, and as what Maria
Anu says must bo, generally is, I at onco
went and made a bargain with a house
painter. lie said he would send his paint
ers around. The next morning I got my
breakfast, and started out to earn my
bread by the perspiration of my classic
brow. I opened the door and put my
foot into a tin pail full of paint. Then I
took it out and set it on tho hall door
mat. Maria Ann assisted mo from there,
anil I took a flying leap over the painter
to the sidewalk. The painters painted
the fence and the front steps that fore
noon. Every one who came to see us
cither painted their hands on tho gate
and left prints thereof on the chairs or
else painted their soles on the steps, and
made tracks all over the parlor carpet.
The cat laid down on the steps to sleep in
the sun, and the paint dried so fast that
when she got up, one side of her was
Tho next morning the men canto before
any one was up and began to take out all
the windows. During the entire day they
were working around the window casings.
One of them would 6tand by the open
kitchen window, and another by tho open
parlor window, and then they would talk,
about the Painter's Union, about tho
picnic, about the price of flour, about
the girls; about all the while. The retire
ment which is among tho charms of do
mestic life did not characterize our house
to any great extent that day.
The next morning about 5 o'clock I
heard some one walking into tho bedroom.
I sprang boldly from the bed, grasped a
boot in one hand and the pitcher in the
other, and determined to sell my life as
dear as possible unless I got a chance to
run down stairs. Said I "Who is there?"
" Oh," replied the intruder, " it's me,
the painter; I am taking down the blinds."
1 felt much relieved; but Maria rather
seemed to be out of patience. She told
the mun what she thought about him, and
made pointed comments upon his man
ners, his appearance and the probabilities
that he never enjoyed a common school ed
ucation. The painter was wedded to his
art, and paid no attention to the prattle
of Maria Ann. With the windows and
blinds both out, the interior of tho house
was somewhat exposed, and the task of
getting dressed was attended with some
embarrassment, especially as the painters
seemed to bo at work at all of tho win
dows. While wo were eating breakfast
one of the painters came iu with an arm
full of towels, and remarked that he found
the n hanging on the clothes line, and he
supposed Maria would have no objections
ti his using them to wipe off tho doors
before he grained them. Maria stated
her objections in detail and the man
The next morning I was up early.
When the painters came I volunteered to
help them, "Come right along." I shout
ed, " let's tako oft' tho clapboards and
paint them. Let's take up the cellar and
paint that, inside mid out. Let's paint
the cistern.. Let's take down tho chim
ney and paint the bricks. Let's paint
the hole tho cellar leaves. Let's ."
They assured me that I was planniug
more work than was necessary, and as
they did not act as though they needed
my help, I went back to break fast.
The next time the house wants paint
ing I will move into the back yard and
send tho house down to the shop, where
the paiuters can swarm around it at their
Didn't " Bless"' tho Whiskey.
A Kentucky lawyer on a circuit was
asked to dino with tho judger At tabic,
tho judge, as was tho custom, asked a
blessing, and shortly after took from the
sideboard a bottle of old Bourbon, of
which ho asked his friend - to partake,
partaking freely himself, as is also his cus

"Judge, will you permit me to ask you
a question ?"
O, certainly," replied the judge;
" what is it?"
; I observed," replied the lawyer,
" that after you had asked a blessing, you
sot on tho bottle. Now I wish to ask
whether you are ashamed to ask a bless
ing on the liquor, or whether you thought
it good enough without it?"
The judgo took the case under advise

A geologist onco travelling in a stage
coach iu England, happened to sit op
posite to a lady ; glances were exchanged,
aud mutual admiration seemed to bo the
result. Eye language was soon exchanged
for verbal conversation ; after a few inter
changes about fossils and petrifactions,
tliey began to talk about living subjects
irom generalities to specialities from the
third person plural, to tho first person
singular. Said the geutleman:
" I am still unmarried."
" So am I," quoth the lady.
" I have sometimes thought of marry
ing," said the former.
"So have I," the latter responded.
Then a pause ensued.
" Suppose," said the gentleman, "we
were to marry ouo another I would love

In two days they were married. Few
will admire such a precipitous courtship;

A Rogue's Valise.
Two shop lifters were recently arrested
in New York City for appropriating goods
from stores, etc., and the valise in which
they stowed their plunder was found to bo
consttuetcd especially for their predatory
purposes. To all appearances it was a
well-umdo leather article, strapped up
tight, and looped as though it could not

trouble, but on examination it proved to

Shot as a Medicine
Dr. Maydicu, of Franco has revived
tho old practice of giving shot for billious
colic. His method is, to take No. 5 shot,
after carefully washing them with sweet
oil, and pive a desert spoonful every half
hour. He claims that in five or six
hou'8 the vomiting ceases. Tho editors
of the "Pacific Medical and Surgical
Journal" relate the following anecdote il
lustrative of this treatment: A clergy
man was taken very sick and stopped at
the house of a good lady, who was famil
iar with tho treatment, who stated that
she had no shot, but a bullet which would
answer the purpose. She gave it to the
divine, who, after being assured of its
great efficacy, swallowed it, and ' to his
joy aud surpriso found that in a very
short time he was relieved of colic. Be
fore leaving he expressed some doubt to
the old lady about the piece of lead so
heavy finding its way through the bowels.
" Oh, my," she replied, "you need have
no anxiety about that, as it has been
through me ten or twelve times."
A Novel Method of Fracticc.
We clip the following from the JJoston
" A good, but we know not how reliable
a story, is related of a venerable doctor of
tht experimental school of medicine. It
was one of his rules never to have any
thing wafted ; and therefore, when any
prescription remained after the patient
had died or recovered, he would empty U
iuto a bottle kept for the purpose, that
became a receptacle of a heterogeneous
compound that science could not aualyzc.
A youuger member of t he faculty noted
this as a very singular fact, and asked
him the reason for it. The doctor hesi
tated a little, and then replied that,
though in ordinary cases he knew well
what to do, there were instances when
all his medical skill failed. At such
times, it was his custom to resort to the
big bottle and leave nature and accident
to accomplish tho cure. ' And will you
believe it,' said he, ' some of my most
brilliant successes have resulted from
fJiS" A man had been arrested for ac
cidentally striking a passenger with his
whip in a street car. The stroke was
evidently meant for the mule but the lash
was too loug, and came in contact with the
complainant's shoulders. When the case
was called up, an attorney moved to dis
miss tho case on the ground that it was
no assault, because unintentional, aud
there was no law to cover it. The mag
istrate took issue with him, and fined the
oflendiug driver under the statute re
lating to cruelty to animals.
" But, my dear sir !" exclaimed the
astonished lawyer, you ean't do that."
" But I have done it."
" Yes, I know, but there is a mistake."
" How so !"
"The complainant is no animal."
Another lawyer, seeing the judge's per
plexity, suggested that the driver might
be a brute.
" Yes," exclaimed tho elated disciple
of Elton, "he's a brute " I fine him for

We observe that in a recent election in
Suffolk the expanse of Lord Mahon
eldest sou of Earl Stanhope, the historian,
amounted to 3,890 ; whilst those of his
opponent, who was unsuccessful, were
2,931. Candidates are compelled to
make an official return of their costs and

of " agency expenses" Lord Mahoti paid

About a year since, tho widow and
six children of James Dougherty, killed

Was St. Paul a Bachelor.
IT SEEMS to be a pretty general im
pression, says a recent writer, that
l'aul was a bachelor, and many ladies of
tho present day have formed an opinion
of him which is decidedly unfavorable.
I believe, aud purpose to show that l'aul
was actually a married man, and a strong
advocato of " Woman's Bights." The
Corinthian Church had written to him
for directions upon a subject of matri
mony iu a time of great persecution, and
under the cirrumstanrahe seems to thiuk
that for the tinio being the unmarried
had better remain so. Eusebius Clement
and other historians, speak of l'aul as a
married man, and according to the best
evidence, we can get, ho was at the time
of writing this epistle a vidou-cr. And
thus he remained true to his dead wife,
and admonished other men who had lost
their wives to pursue a similar course.
If there is a woman iu America who is
particularly anxious for her husband to
warry again after her death, we should
like to see her. The Apostle's " advice
to wives," in the fifth chapter of Ephesians,
seems to be very offensive to some because
he admonishes them to obidiane. Hus
bands are very fond of quoting it. If
there is but one text in the Bible,
with which they areacquainled, it isthatf:
but do you ever hear tho twenty-fifth
verso from masculine lips ? Listen :
" Jlitslanrx, love your icivc rven as Christ
loved the. Church' i.tnd ijove himself for
it." There, gentlemen, is your rule of
conduct don't you forget, aud, by the
way, how do you like it ? Where is there
a greater love than this? and what an
exalted opinion l'aul must have had of
woman to deem her worthy of such affec
tion ! Host assured that, obedience will
gladly follow a love like that. When
men are honest, loyal, and true when
they tenderly love and shield even at the
sacrifice of self, then woman will honor
aud obey withoutauy objections or regrets.
Templed by Degrees.
John Newtou says, Satan seldom comes
to a Christian with great temptations, or
with a temptation to commit a great sin.
You bring a green log and a caudle to
gether and they arc very safe neighbors ;
but bring a few shavings and set them
alight, and then bring a few small sticks
let them take fire, and the log bo in the
midst ofthem, and you will soon get rid
of your log. And so it is with little sins.
You will be startled with the idea of com
mitting a great sin, and so tho devil
brings you a littlo temptation, and leaves
you to indulgo yourself. " There's no
great harm in this ;" " no great peril, in
that ;" and so by these chips we are first
easily lighted up, and at last the green
log is burucd. Watch and pray that ye
enter not into temptation.
Loud us Not iuto Temptation.
A lawyer stated these facts. A gentle
man had in his employ a lad who was
guilty of certain misdemeanors, among
others of purloiuiug small sums of money.
As a test, ho put a dollar note in his way.
Tho lad passed tho note for five days
But ou the sixth he could no longer re
sist tho temptation and took the note.
At the trial tho Court was unanimous
against him. The lawyer urged the above
sentiment and closed by saying. " Lead us
not into temptation. The boy was nequi

The Important Question.
John Bacon, an eminent English sculp
ter, whoso works were admired by thous
ands, ordered a plain tablet, with tho fol

to be of some importance while I lived ;
