room, and returned with her face

e was some silence in the room, and
as the time p)asaed on, Mrs. Mar'tin
began to wish herself safely at home,
but Mrs. Glenn wvas of firmer stuff

Half an hor' passed; then a latch

Mrs. Bright, Mrs. Martin, and
Mrs. Glenn boatrded, with thei2

and all of tleim attended the same
church. Either the latter pair wert

Now, thero are a great many wo
mon to whom this sort of thing is gall
and wormwood. Thley cannot beat
to see it, and they break it up if
possible. All the flirts in the con.
gregation had tried to do this and
had failed. All the sour matron
whose ainrried lives were spent in
spats and squabbles, sneered at the
happy pair, and declared that this
won't last long. But it had lasted
for five or six years, and not a flaw

of either, until, one bright summer,
when Mrs. Willis having left home
on a visit to her sister, a very prot
ty young. lady arrived at a neigh
boring hotel, and Mr. Willis-yes
Mr. Willis, no other-was seen tC
devote himself to her in a way that
was positively shocking. Yes, posi
tively terrible. For Mrs. Glent
and Mrs. Martin, who took to going
about in waterproof cloaks and
hoods after dark, had not only seer
Mr. Willis take ice cream with this
young lady, but were ready to swear
that lie kissed her at parting, and
on more than one occasion was seer
to put his arm about her waist.
This had gone on for three weeks
when Mrs. Willis returned; and
now, as the lady was unpacking hei
trunks in 1her pretty rooms next
(d0or, the twvo watchers had deter
mined to inform her of her 1hus
band's infidelity, and no task could

gives exhibitions of his skill in rop
wvalking, camne near' meeting with a
accident the other dlay, but for h:
agility, would undloubtedly have en<
ed his career as a rope walker. E]
conceived the brilliant idea of takin
a cat on the rope, aind starting it o
ahead of him, in order to has
twvo sensations at the same timi
When about thirtyv feet from .tl
shore lie sat tihe cat en Ui
rope, expecting, of course, that tI:
feline wouldl shiow the thing wi
done as well as he could (10 it hin
self. But the cat was not at a
anxious for funamnbulism, and il
stead of making a bee line acros
turned upon01 Peer, climbed upc
him, and fastened his teeth in h
shoulder. In his efforts to disec
gage thme cat lie missed his footin,
and had to dr'op his balance pol
whie:h fell on the rocks .below ar
was broken. Peer i uelf sicrat
bled along the rope back to il
shore. the beat way he could. I
succeeded in rcehing terra firm
but the exhibition of the day wi

I. havo the story of an inc
dent at, one of the Richmond

although all readors may not soo
anything funny about it. A Bos.
toll ill alldlld two Virgilians sat at
Lhe tablo. The Boston man was
shockcd to heatr tho Virginians
call .e colo'od waitor "a black
vascal" and "lnigger." Surely, he
thoughit, tho Spir-it of slavory is
strongly n11ponl this poople. Ito was
enr1efuil to cull tho waiter "his
friend," whon ordering dishos, and
to speak to him in tho kindest and
llost polito manullnor. Notwith
standing hiS h1on10OyOd1 speeCs,
:mid bland timilc Io noticed that
thu waiter brought tho Virginhis
tho best dinnor. Upon refloction
ho ascribed it to the torror awa
conted in the poor witor's mind by
tho rough mpeoec and overboaring
conduct of thoso Southernors. No
doubt hle thought they would
shoot this miscrable creature doad
in his tracks if ho did not bring
them just what they wanted, and
in good style. When the Virgin
ians-i luft tho tablo, the sympathot
ic buit poorly-fed Boston man hast
