Enough for me and you. c
I can't afford to drop it;

I hate to ask my neighbors, 0
To give me theirs on loan; -
They don't just say, but mean it, b
Why don't you have your own?
You can't tell how we miss it, a
If it, by any fate,

Then all is in a bubbub,

You know the reason why. i
Then take it kindly, printer,
If pay be somewhat slow, S
For cash is not so plenty, e
And wants not few, you know.

And how her heart had leaped ~
at the thought of seeing him. V
She gatve one last glance thbrough s

re-enter the house when the firm I

gentlemen arrested her attention.
They were coming *down the a

EISSING AND TELLING OF
When the wrong .man kisses
the right woman or the right man
isses the wrong woman-and
Doth sometimes happen-it does
iot always follow that there is a
isturbance about it. The world
an never know how much unau
bhorized kissing has been done and
,orgiven and forgotten. In the
atuially wild and audacious ca
-eer of the human kind there is a
great deal of that sore of business.
tnd it is just as well that it isnot
3ruelly dragged before the public
>n every occasion. If that were
tlways donn it would be very dis
;ouraging to,a reasonable delight
ul pastime which more or less
oncerns everybody. Many of the
~ares and trials of this world find
relief in a kiss ; it is a very little
bhing, uncommonly sweet for its
ize, and one of the.few luxuries
f this world which well organized
people never get too much of.
Tobody who understands even
the rudiments of kissing disdains
its practice, and those who have
been so fortunate as to reach
something of the science of the
thing are not easily restrained in
their pursuit of supreme happi
ness. A kiss doesn't cost any
thing, and it's a pretty small mat

ting angry about it and regard
ing it as a misfortune to mall'e
pblic complaint. Now and then,
o Never, human nature is put to
an awful test in this way, and hu
man nature breaks down. A man
may not be so particular about
putting his kisses wbere they will
do the most good ; the chief aim
of man is to get the kiss, and he
is frequently too hasty and too
reckless about it. But a woman
is apt to be a little more consid
erate in her preferences.
There was an Illinois woman,
now, who had a prejudice against
being kissed by a tailor-possibly
because the other eight parts of
the main were not around-al
though the tailor was perfectly
free to say that he had no prejul
dice against kissing the lady. lie
regaraed her as sweet enough to
kiss and frankly told her so.
There are some cold, proud wo
men who in some unaccountable
way have got into this world who
would not be affected by any
sich talk, but the number of these
is v'ery, very few. Whether the
Illinois woman was one of this
rare kind or not is still a matter
of dispute. It is also undecided
whether she told the tailor he was
a andsome man ; she insists that
being a truthfuiJ woman, she couk
not have done so conscientiouSly
while he takes the opposite sid<
of the question. There is, how
ever, no controversy about thbe on<
point that he did kiss her, and at
ter all this is the most importan
thing. It is not certain just wha
was the matter with this kiss
whether it was not up to the
standard or whether there ma2

that the lady didn't lose much
time in telling her husband about
it, and the husband lost no time in
horse-whipping the tailor for do
ing just what he had doubtless
bimself done a thousand times.' In
this way the matter became the
property of the public, for the
tailor proceeded against the bus
band for assault. Such a course
is as strange as it is unusual, and
if allowed to go on unrebuked
must inevitably- cut a tailor off
from many of the good things of
this world.-Phil. Times.
BACK TO BACK.
A rowdy cannot endure the
sight of a well.dresscd man. It
'acts upon him as a' red shawl up
on a bull. Some years ago, as
two young gentlemen were going
home from a party in Philadel
phia, they were attacked by a
gang of rowdies. The youths
were brothers, and noted for their
skill in boxing. Standing back to
back, they knocked down their
assailants as fast as they came at
them. In a few minutes the row
dies fled. Similar tactics once
saved two English anglers from
being bitten by a pack of fierce
dogs. As they were passing a
farm-house, a large dog, whose
barking and glaring eyes an
nounced his rage, dashed at them.
'Catch up some stones and stand
back to back, or he he'll worry
us,' cried the elder.
Armed with as many stones as
they could pick up, they put
themselves in position and waited
the charge. But the dog did not
attack. He' evidently thought the
position too formidable for him to
carry by assault. After circling
aoand the men two or three times,
he returned to the farm-house.
The anglers, congratulating
themselves od the success df their
tactics pressed onward. They
had just passed over the brow of
a hill when a chorus of 'Yelp,
yelp, yelp!' announced another
and more dangerous attack.
'We are hunted,' shouted one t'
the other; 'more stones, and stand
firm, or we are dead men.'
Filling their.pockets and bands
with stones, the two men again
stood back to back, and waited
anxiously the attack. On came
the large dog. with four other
dogs, all open-mouthed and bark
They, too, had their tactics.
They began by circling round the
anglers, and gradually drew nearer
A well-aimed stone struck the
leader of the pack on the head
and rolled him over. Another
stone hit a second dog on the
side and sent him out of the circle
owling with pain.
Then the pack baited, retreated
some distance, and again began to
circle round the men. Sullenly
they went round and round, until,
seeing no chance for an assault,
they vent slowly oft over the
The anglers wvent their way,
speculating as to the method by
which the large dog persuaded bis
four companions to join him in
assaulting his enemies.

out speaking to her; she had never
thought of the long evenings whev
he wouldn't come at all, or his
bringing some one home to dinner
without .warning or preparation;
of his awful profanity over so
trifling a matter as the gas bill.
She had no idea, in fact, that
there could be anything but hap
piness in married life, and she had
determined to be happy and to
distribute her happiness to those
about her. It is not often her
fault if she doesn't succeed. Men,
as a rule, do not exert themselves
to secure their wives' happiness.
They know that it requires a con
stant and a great effort to possess
property and be secure in its value
in the midst of constant commer
cial changes. The cheerfulness,
the happy, hopeful character
which every woman displays at
the beginning of marriage is not
so easily lost as a fortune; it re
quires but a small share of the at
tention, and yet she often does not
get that little share. Therefore a
word to the girls in this connec
tion is in order ; beware of a man
who doesn't know enough about
cheerfulness to undertand its value
in daily life. Such a man would
improve the first opportunity to
grind the cheerfulness out of his
home, to frighten a sun%eam into
a shadow, and then wonder what
is the matter. Such is no better
than no husband at all ; and when
you want a husband go find some
body else-somebody who will
give you at least some chance to
be happy far into the life beyond
soME MEN'S WIVES.
Three men of wealth meeting not
long since in New York, the con
versation turned upon their wives.
Instead of finding fault with wo
men in general, and their wives in
particular, each one obeyed the
wise [man's advice, and gave hon
or unto his wife.
'I tell you what it is,' said one
of the men, 'they may say what
they please about the uselessness
of modern women, but my wife
has done her share in securing our
success in life.
'Every body knows that her fam
ily was aristocratic and exclusive,
and all that, and when I married
her she had never done a day's
work in her life ; but whben W. &
Co. failed, and I bad to commence
at the foot of the hill again, she
discharged the servants and chose
out a neat little cottage, and did
her own housekeeping until I was
better off again.'
'And my wife,' said a second,
'was an only daughter, caressed
and petted to death ; and every
body said, 'Well if he will marry a
doll like that, he'll make the
greatest mistake of his life ;' but
