How Softly on the Bruised Heart.
How softly on the bruised heart,
A word of kindness fall!,
And to the dry and pirched soul
The moist'ning teardrop calls;
Oh, if they knew who walked the earth
- 'Mid sorrow, grief and pain,
-'he power a word of kindness hath,
'Twere paradise again.
T'he weakest and the poorest may
The simple pittance give,
And bid delight to withered hearts,
Return again and live;
Oh, what is life if life be lost?
If man's unkind to man
Or, w -.: -' : deaven that waits beyond
Thi3 brief and mortal span ?
As stars upon the tranqnil sea,
In mimic glory shine,
So words of kinduess in theiheart
Reflect the source divine ;
Oh, then be kind, who'er thou art,
That breathes the mortal breath,
And it shall brighten all thy life,
And sweeten even death.

How He Came to be Married.
It may be funny, but I've done
it. I've got a rib and a baby.

and doctor's bills. I'll just tell
you how I got caught. I was al
ways the darndest, most tea-cus
tard, bashful fellow you ever did
see; it was kinder in my line to
be taken with the shakes every
time I saw a pretty girl approach
ing me, and I'd cross the street
anv time rather than fiee one;
tw~asn't becanse I didn't like the
critters. fr if I was behind the
fence looking through a knot hole.
I could not look long enough.
Well, my sister Lib gave a party
one niht, and I started away
from home because I was too bash
ful to face the music. I hung
around the house whistling 'Old
Dan Tucker,' dancing to keep my
feet warm, watt-ling the heads
bobbing up and down behind the
window curtains. and wishing the
thundering party would break up.
so I could get to my room. I
smoked up a bunch of eigars. and
i6 was getting late and mighty
uncoinfortab.e. I concluded to-shin
up the door post. No sooner said
than done, and I soon found my
self snug in my bed.
'Now,' says I. 'let her rip !'
Dance till your wind gives out.'
And -euddlini down under the
quilts, Morpheus grabbed me.
I was dreaming of soft-shell
erabs and stewed tripe, and hav
ing a good time, when somebody
ilnocked at the door and woke me
up. 'Rap' again. I laid low. 'Itap,
rap, rap ' Then I heard whis
pering. and I knew there was a
whole raft of gals outside. Then
Lib sings out
-Jack, are you there ?'
'Yes,' sas I.
Then cane a roarof laughter.
'L,t us in,' said she.
'I wo't. said I. 'Can't you let
aI fellow aloWe ?"
IAire you abe!Vd ? says she.
'Ia .4'says I
'Get out,' says she.
'I won't,' says I.
Then came another laugh.
By thunder! 1 began: to get

I heard a still. small veice, very
much like sister: Lib's. and it said:
'-Ja-k, you'll have to get up.
fr all the gi-l&' things are there.'
Oh, mercy ! what a pickle !
Think of me, in bed, all covered
with muffs, shawls, bonnets and
cloaks. andi twenty gir-ls outside
the door, waiting to get in ! If I
had stolpped to think I should

preparing themselves- for tie
shades of the night, and Sal and
myself sat on an ai-tiquated back
log, listening to the music of n:
ture, such as tree-toads. roosters
and grunting pigs; and now and
then the music of a jackass wa
wafted to our ears by the gentle
zephyrs that sighed among the
mullen stalks, and heavily laden
with the delicious odors of hen
roosts and pig-styles. The lavt
lingering rays of the setting sun.
glancing from the buttons of a
solitary horseman, shone through
a knot-hole in a hog-pen, full. i
Sal's face. dying her hair an or
ange peel bie, and showing et
ny threadbare coat to bad adrm
tage; one of my arms was around
Sal' waist, my hand rest'ng on
the .,nall of her back; she was
toying with my auburn loeks f
jet black hue; she was almost
!one. and I was almost ditto.
She looked like a grasshopper dy
ing with the hiccups. and I felt
like a mud-turtle choked with a
'Sal,' says I, in a voice as mu
sical as the notes of a dying swan,
'will you bave me?'
She raised her eyes heaven ward,
and cla:ped me by the hand, had
an attack of the heaves and blind
staggers, and with a sigh that
drew her shoestrings to her pai
ate, said : Yes.'
She zavc clear out then, and
squ:tttcd in my lap. I bugged
her till I broke mv suspenfe

Well, to take a long story
short she set the day, and we
praeticeti fvr four weeks every
night how we would en-ter the
room to be married, till we-got so.
we could walk as gracefully as a
coulpe ofI Museory ducks. The
night, the company and the mitn
i:ter came, the signal was given,
and arm in arm we went through
the hall. We was just entering
the parlor door, when I went
down ker.lap on the oilcloth pul
ing Sal after me. Some eussed
fellow 11rd dropped a banan*
skir on the floor and it floored
ma. It split an awful hole in my
cassimeres, right under my coat
tail. It was too late to back ou,
so clasping my hand over it, we
marched in and were spliced, and
taking a seat, I watched the
kissing-the-bride operation. My
groomsman was tight, and :.
kissed her tili I jumped cp totaka
a slice, when, oh. horror! a littlo
six-year imp 'Jad crawled behind
me and pul!ed my shirt through
the hole in my panits and pintied
it to the chair. so tl:.-t when I
jumped up I disp!ayed to the as
tollished multitude a trifle moro
white mus!in than was pleasant.,
The women girrled the mer

finally put to bed, and there my
troubles ended. Good night,
