Love's Young Dream.
The following choice piece of sarcasm
which purports to have been written by
young lady in Xew York City to her
prim, spectacled maiden aunt in Boston,
may, in truth, have been indited by
that amiable lady herself, with a view
exposing tlte absurd infatuation with
which girl-brides shut themselves up in
delusion that their husbands are
embodyments of perfection. If the old
did write the document, it was
hardly fair in her to go and palm it off
the innocence of inexperienced bride-
hood. . .
Jty Pear Aunt : Although you told me
when I invited you to my wedding that
was too-young to marry, and not cap
of choosing a mate for life proper
and with due consideration, I know
you may now feel that I - was wis
than you thought. In selecting dear
Orlando I have gained a most affection
and attentive husband, and one that
neither a fault nor a vise. Heavens !
What 'must a girl suffer who finds her
united to a dissipated person, neg
lectful of her and disposed to seek the
society of unworthy persons,who smoke
drink,and do all sorts of dreadful things

There is a man in this city who is so
affectionately fond of his wife that he
is jealous if a man who looks within

he immediately threatened suicide. His
wife was dispatched fora bottle of pois

ored with liquorice and bottled with a
glaring poison label outside. When he
threatened to take some of it, and actu
ally poured it into a wine glass, she
screamed for help and rau into another
room, where she could watch him
through the keyhole, and saw him cool
ly open the window and throw it out
She then rushed back, apparently fran
tic with grief, and implored him not to
do the rash deed. He merely pointed
at the glass, and laying down on the
floor, began .to kick out his legs like a
jumping-jack. Shp told him she was
determined to share bis fate, and swal
lowed the rest of the liquorice water,
whereupon he. became really frighten-

that he only shammed, and said that if
she " only' survived he never' would
