Dear Sius : I take my pea in Land
to inform you that I am iu a state of
great bliss, and trust these lines wi;l
find you injoyin the same blessins.
I'm reguvinaied. I've found the im
mortal waters of yooth, so to speak,
and am as limber and frisky as a two
year old steer, and iu the future them
boys which sez to me " go up, old
Rawld head," will do so at their hazard

house is full of joy, and I have to git

I returned from the Summer Cam"
pane with my unparalleled show of
wax works and livin wild licests of
Pray in the early pari of this month.
The people of lialdinsville met me
coruully, and I immejitly commenst

Sez he, " Rust my gizzud, but it is

hce'd kill his self.
Sez I, rLsin aud puttiu on a austeer
look, Si William, I woulduut bo a fool
if I had common cents."
But he kept ou larfin til he was black

Row to Discover tbe A'culy Married. ;
A more tljn usual number of wed
ding tourists arc noticed, by travebrs
and conductors - on the different rail
roads. Of course, it is not on account of be
ing ashamed of each other that they try
to disguise their situation, but simply
to avoid being criticised and remarked
upon by profane strangers. Thus they
lay the fond unctioa to their souls that
they are traveling in cog. But, good
gracious, how badly fooled they are.
It is one of the easiest things in the
world to the careful eye to tell precise
ly how many days, or even hours they
have been "spliced." They can some
times be detected by the great pains
they take to appear either like old mar
ried people or cousins, as they promo
nade the deck of a stenmer, or sit so
demurely in the cars. In many cases
their dress, in part, exposes them. It
is so appropos to the occasion, being
neat, symmetrical an-? bran new. In
cases where the parties have good taste,
there is no gaudiuess about their at
tire. All glitter and display is thrown
aside, and the; city be!!? appears mo
like a Quakeress in her simple travel
ing dress of drab or niou.e color.
Sometimes the 3'outhful culprits en
gage iu playing at lovers or effect a flir
tation, but it is always a stupendous
failure. Their eyes betray too much
happiness for wit and repartee ; there
is such a peculiar softness and tender
ness iu their confidential whispers, and
such a pride in the possession of each
other, that none of them are deceived.
Tt is generally that the b.idegroom
makes the discovery first, and throws
his arm carelessly around the shoulders
of his wife, as much as to say, defiant
ly to the envious, " Who's afraid ?
Who knows but that we have been
married many years ?" Not know ?
Ihe guilty slyness in the way that
arm steals around, first on the top of
tlie seat back and then gradually clos
er, while the bride evinces silent pleas
ure as she acquiesces in a very uuper
ceiving way. Indeed, it is she who
"lets the cat out of the bag "most
quickly. The narrow gu age seats are
preferable to the broad guage, and if
you sit on the seat back f them you
will observe at first that the lady's
shoulders are not even they incline
just a little to her partner. After trav
eling iu this position , a few hours, her
neck gets as limber as a washed paper
collar and her head gravitates to the
broad shoulders of her husband and
there it nestles innocently and confi
dingly in the repose of honest, pure j
and truthful love. At times in spite
of all precautions, a tress or two of her
golden locks will get loose and drop on
her shoulder. But' it almost seems
that there is order and neatness in their
very disorder aud abandon.
So they pro, fancying themselves lost
in the crowd unnoticed, unknowu,
with their secret locked up in their own
palpitating bosoms. liappy young
Hard on the Ladies. Some old
fogy, (an old dilapidated bachelor, of
course,) gets off the fallowing at the
expense of the ladies :
" Taken as a class, women can con
trive more outlandish and ugly fash
ions than one would think possible
without the gift of inspiration. Take,
for instance, the waterfall. First it
represented a bladder of snuff; next it
hung down a woman's back like a can-vass-covercd
ham ; afterward it con
tracted, and counterfeited a turnip on
the back of the head ; now it sticks
straight out behind, and looks like a
wire muzzle on a greyhound. Nest
ling in the midst ot this long stretch
of hair reposes a little batter-cake of a
bonnet like a jockey saddle on a long
backed race horse."
. Compliment to a Young Minis
ter. A young man having preiched
for Dr. Emmons, one day, was anxious
to get a word of applause for lis labor
of love. The crave doctor, however,
did not introduce the subjert, and his
younger brother was obliged to bait
the hook for him. " I hor.e, sir, I did
not weary .your people by 'e length of
my sermon to-day t " o, sir, not at

sea I, "My crrin frien. it cuts me to

There is a kind of man who carry
more 6unshine into a single day than
we can get out of others in a life time.
The secret ol the subtle charm that
draws us to certain people is a certain
cheerfulness of disposition, in the
presence of which we feel refreshed,
warmed and invigorated. Tempera
ment is an. jl our sour, morose, me
lancholic natures, out of whoso eyes
look distrust, anxiety, or dissatisfac
tion, repel and annoy us. Some people
are always foreboding the future, aud,
in time, acquire the gloomy aspect and
uncomfortable habits of ancient ravens,
whom one would as lief meet as a
thundercloud. They go about the
world in the firm persuasion that our
respectable planet is doomed, that the
mass of mankind are condemned scoun
drels, and that it is all up with humanity.
" Mankind, sir I" said one of the spe
cies to a man who' was mildly stating
his belief in the progress of the world,
and the general solvency of human na
ture, " mankind is a damned rascal !"
From this class of inveterate croak
ers and misanthropists to the man who
is born with the light in his own clear
breast, and so radiates and difluses
cheerfuluess all around him, there is a
wide interval. Y'our ordinary uncar
ing mortals go about the affairs of life
after the same dull humdrum, stereo
typed fashion, and meet one another
day after day with the same blank and
uninterested countenance. But your
bright and cheery characters come to
life as to a festival, aud meet all their
fellow beings with ever-fresh, ever
epontaneous interest. Insted -of be
ing depressed by the prevalent indif
ference and gloom, and dragged down
to its level,they put themselves straight
way to infusing netf life into it, and to
bring all they meet into their own gay
and happy humor. One person fully
the subtle magnetism,
like a Leyden jar imparts a kindly
shock of pleasure to all who come
within range. It is incalculable how
much we are influenced by the person
al atmosphere that surrounds us. Even
the unimpressible, frigid natures are
rrarmed into unwonted cheerfulness in
the presence of a jolly, good natured,
hearty companion, full of vivacity and
overflowing with fun. There is no hu
man iceberg so cold but will melt some
times. Cheerfulness of disposition is a
mighty sanative. More healing than
balm, more potent than medical aid is
the presence of good humored attend
ants to the sick. A bright and hap
py face, a cheery voice, a blithe and
lively manner, such as many young
people carry with them, comes with
tonic force into the feeble and queru
lous nervous system of his invalid.
She truest balsam for hurt minds is
cheerfulness, and he who has an un
failing reservoir of good spirits will
never need the doctor.
There is no quality so Conductive to
success in lifo as a sunny disposition.
Sydney Smith was the author of that
true Baying that " A habit of looking
on the bright side of things is worth a
thousand pounds a year to a man."
Carried into the business of life, wheth
er professional, commercial, or any
other, this quality uever fails to brinir
around a man troops of friends. They
are invincibly attracted by so much
and so unusual bovhommie, and the
possessor of it can do almost anything
he pleases with them. The selfish,
cold-hearted curmudgeon never gets
served out of any other motive than
interest' while the warm-hearted, win-
smie, universally likpl possessor of
good humor always finds a host of
friends ready to help him out of sheer
love. Say whnt men will of the pow
er of money, there is something in
character which transcends it. There
is no influence comparable of depth
and permanence to that which is ac
quired by what may be termed (for
lack of a better phrase) the loveable
qualities of human nature. Men will
go through fire and water to serve a
a friend, and will do that for love
which they would never undertake for
The politeness is nothing else than
perpetual good humor. Your hurr.an
boors and yahoos, who never enter a
car or sit down to a table without com
mitting a breech of good breeding, are
not the men of sunshiny, merry dispo-
sition. The equality keeps its pos
sessor forever above the reach of bo
low and selfish a habit as rudeness.
We very much fear that cheerful
ness is a quality not to be had by cul
tivation, at least in its best estate. A
man must be born with it to have it in
any highly developed form. But much
may be done by persons possessed of a
more unfortunate temperament to cor
rect ita infirmities. A habit may be
cultivated of looking for better and
brighter days, instead of mourning
over the past and dreading the future.
Bear always in mind the French epi
" Some of yonr hurts you have cured,
And the sharpest you still have survived ;
Bnt what torments of grief you endured
From evils that never arrived."
A PaHentiaL Letter. The fol
lowing letter was written by a father to
his son in college :
" My Dear Son I write to send you
your new socks, which your mother has
just knit by cutting down some of mine.
Your mother sends you ten dollars
without my knowledge, and for fear
you would not spend it wisely, I kept
back half, and only send you five.
Your own mother and 1 are well, ex
cept that your 6ister has got the mea
sels, which we think would spread
among the otbjr girls if Tom had not
had them before, and he ia the only
one left. I hope you will do hon
or to my teachings; if you do not you
arp a donkey, and your mother and
myself are your affectionate parents
