IT OILY aE= THE 02EE DAY.
Though swiftly Time, and rapid wings,
Has borne s from old scenes we knew,
- Yet memory oft the picture brings
In glowing colors back to view;
Thus early friends remember when
They first as school-boys-met in play,
And yet, though years have passed since then,
It only seems "the other day."
The form of her we loved of yore,
To whom we pledged affection's vow,
Will glide before our eyes once more,
Though but in memory living now;
Of that dark hair one tress alone
A treasured gift-is spared decay,
Yet words in that familiar tone
Sjeem only breathed " the other day."
Those friends appear no more the saMe
That shared our mirth and dried our tears,
Or taught us childhood's favorite game
The dear old friends of early years;
But when we ask if they forget
Those memories of the past, they say
"Tho' time has wrouaht some changes, yet
It only seems " the other day."
HOW BEN PIRTLE GOT HIS WIFE.
The very climax of ugliness was Ben Purtle.
He was red haired, and each stood as if it
cherished the supreme.it contempt for its next
neighbor. His face was freckled as the most
bespotted turkey eg. His nose supported at
the bridge a large lui;, while the end turned
viciously to one side. 114i mouth had every
shape but a pretty shape. His form was as
uncouth as his facie was ugly. The very climax
of ugliness was little Ben Purtle-what was
more still,Ben had a handsome,bouncing, bloom
ing wife-such as can only be grown upon a
" Huw the deuce," said I to Ben one (lay,
"did you ever get such a wife, you uncouth,
mishappen, quintessence of monstrosity ?"
Ben was not at all offended by the inperti
nence of my question, and forthwith began to
solve the mystery thus:
"Well, now, gals what's sensible aint touched
by none of your purty, and hifalutin airs. I've
seed that tried mor'n once. You know Kate
was allers considered the purtiest girl in these
parts, and all the young fellers in the naborhood
use to try to cotch her. Well, I used to go over
to old Sammy's too, just to kinder look on, you
know, and cast a sheep's eye at Kate. But
marsv sakes! I had no more thought that I
could get Kate than a Jerusalem cricket could
hide in the hair that waqn't on old Sammy's
head-no siree. But atill I couldn't help going,
an' my heart would kinder fButter, and my eyes
would burn all over, whenever I'd go to talk
with Katy. And one day when Kate sorter
made fun'of me like, it almost killed me sure;
I went home with something like a roek jostling
about in my breast, and declared I'd hang my
self with the first plow line I found."
" Did you hang yourself?"
" No; daddy blazed out to me for rot taking
old B.dll to the pasture in the morning, and
scared me so that I forgot it."
" Go on," said I, seeing Ben pause with ap
parent regret that he had not executed his vow.
" Well, so one M mnday morning-(I reckon
it was a year after that hanging scrape)-- got
- up and scraped my face with daddy's old razor ;
and put on my new copprus britches, and a new
lihsy coat mammy had dyed with sassafras bark,
and went over to Uncle Sammy's. Now, i'd
got to loving Kate like all creation, but I never
cheeped to anybody about my feelings. But I
knowed I was on the right side of the old folks.
" Well, now, ain't it queer," continued Ben;
"How a feller will feel sometimes)? Something
seemed to say asJ went along,." Ben Purtle,
this is a great day for you," and then ikny heart
jumped and fluttered like a jay bird in a trap.
And when I got there and seed Kate with her
new checked homespun frock on, I raily thought
I should take the blind staggers, anyhow."
Ben paused again to brush the fog fromt his
eyes, and then continued :
" Well, I found the order of the day, was to
go muscandine hunting. Jo Sharp and his two
sisters, and Jim Bowels was thar. U'd knowed
a long time that Sharp was right after Kate,
and I hated him worse than a hog hates to find
his way out of a tatter patch ; but I didn't let
on. Sharp had on white britches and fine shoes,
and broadcloth overcoat, but every body knowed
he wasn't worth a red cent. He walked with
Kate and you ought to have seen the airs he
put on. it was "3Miss Kate" this, and " Miss
Kate" that, and all such nonsense. After a while
we come near a slough whar we had to cross on
a log, and IPd a notion to push the sassy good
for-nothing feller into the water."
" Why didn't you ?"
"rStop, never mind," said Ben, giving me a
nudge, "Providence dlone all up brown. Noth
ing must do but Joe Sharp must lead Mliss Kate
across fust. He jumiped on the log in high glee
and took Kate's h.ind, and they put off. Just
as they had got half way across, a tarnation big
bull frog jumped off' into the water-you know
how they holler-" Snakes !" screamed the fool,
and knocked Kate off up to her waist in the
nasty, black, muddy water. And what d'ye
think he done ? Why ho run backwards and
foreds, a hollerin' for a pole to help Kate out of
the water. Kate looked at me, and I couldn't
stand it no longer. Cur chuck I lit ten feet
from the bank at the first jump, and had Kate
*out of there in no time. And d'ye think the
scamp didn't come up after we'd got out, and
said: "Ar you hurt, Miiss Kate ?"
"Mby dander was up. I couldn't stand it ; I
cotched him by the seat of his white britches
and his coat collar, and gin him a toss. Miaybe
he didn't go clear under when he hit the water.
I didn't see him out. 3fe and Kate put for the
house. When we ,started off, Kate said:
"Ben, just et me hold on to your arm, I
kinder feel sorter weak."
Great Jiminy! I felt so quar when she took
hold. I tried to say something nice, but my
drotted mouth would not go off, no how. But
I felt as strong as an elephant, and helped Kate
along. ~Bimeb Kate siaid:
"Ben, that JeSharp's a good for nothing,
sneaking, cowardly nobody ; ef he ever puts his
head inside of our house again, Il souse him
with dish-water, sure."
I tried to say something again, but hang the
luck, I couldn't say nothing, but squeezed Kate's
hand, ansi sighed like a cranky bellus.
When we'd got clean out of sight of the
others, Kate says:
"Ben, [ feel that you are my protector, and
believe daddy's right when he says you're worth
all the rest of the boys in the naborhood."
Ben Purtle, says 1, this is a great day for you,
and I made a tremendous effort to get my mouth
off again, and out it popped, sure enough.
"Kate," said I, trembling all over, "I love
you to destruction, and no mistake. I've loved
you long and hard. Miy heart's been almost
broken for years ; and I want you to nay right
straight up and down, whether you're a-going
to have me or not 7"
Kate hung down her head and didn't say
nothing, but I felt encouraged, for she kinder
sighed. Says I, "Kate ef you're a gwine to
have me, say so, and ef you don't want to
say so, .just squeeze my hand."
Well she squeezed my hand right off; ILorry
how I did feel. I felt like asa stream of warm
water or sasafras tea, sweetened with molasses,
was running through my bones ! and I just
cotehed her in my arms and kissed her, and she
,never tried the first time to get loose.
Ben was so overcome with this narration of
courtship, that a pause for breath was neesar.
" How long after that," said I, " before you
."Old Sammy was mighty proud, and so was
thild 'oman, about the thing, and we married
nex fall after the muscandiue scrape."
"ID you think ydur wife loves you pe" I
" Why, Lordy, yes. She thinks Pm the pur
tiest and best feller in the world. I tell you, sir,
it's no use talking; highfalutin airs, and qualitr
dressing, and cologne, and such things, ain t
gwine to go down with sensible gals, sure."
A COOL APOLOGY.
They had a ball down at Waverly, the other
night, which brought out some remarkable ex
perience. Among other events, the following
instance Of a cool apology took place:
Bill P. is known all over, and Bill was at this
ball in all his glory. All of his necessaries for
pleasure on hand-good music, pretty girls and
excellect whiskey. The evening passed off
rapidly, as it always does, and Bill had at about
one o'clock become pretty happy. Stepping up
to a young lady, he requested the pleasure of
dancing with her. She replied she was engaged.
" Well," said Bill are you engaged for the
next set ?"
She said she was.
"Can I dance with you the next then?"
"I am engaged for that also."
"Can I dance with you to-night ?"
"No, sir," with some hesitancy.
" Go to Baston," said Bill, highly indignant,
and turned on his heel.
After a few moments, Bill is accosted by the
brother of the young lady, and 2harged with
insulting his sister. Bill denies but professes
himself willing to apologise, if he has done
wrong, and accordly steps up to the lady, when
the following conversation ensued:
"Miss L., I understand I have insulted you 7"
" You have, sir !"
"What did I say, L " s
" You told me to go to Boston."
" Well," said Bill, "I have come to tell you
that you needn't go !"
