His Dream Dispelled.
A consulship Bounds very big till you ?et
there. There aro innumerable islands in
tho Sown i'acific, and tribes who declaro
war, light, proclaim proclamations of defi?
ance and seem altogether extraordinaryly
heroic. The United States sent a consul to
one group lately wherein the ideal was
grand, immense. Reefing subjects in the
shape of American citizens, suppliant chiefs
and trembling kings, with all the attendant
gorgeousness and dignity, filled his mind's
eye. He "bU3ted" himself ou an outfit,
laid in an elegant dress suit, a pair of patent
leather shoes, white ties, white gloves and
an enormous diamond pin for his shirt front.
Thus equipped be sailed away with all the
conscious pride of a representative of a
grand republic. From the port he landed
at he was conveyed in a small sailing vessel
to the point of ollicialdom. As the ship en?
tered the oiling, tho Hag of tho United States
gayly Hying at the masthead, the white res?
idents of the island came oil'in a small boat
to welcome him. The new official received
them affably, was quito amiable, and did
not put on too many nirs.
' Come on shore with us and we'll pre?
sent you to the king," said the welcomers.
"The king ! I can't go up to the palace
in this dress. My trunks are in the hold.
I can't present mvsclf to the king like
"Ob, como with 113 ; that's all right, you
cau put on all your finery and call on him
again. He's waiting for you."
"Waiting for me ?"
"Yes ; we told him the consul was com
"And he's waiting for me? I don't know
what to do. I can't keep His Majesty
waiting, but I can hardly go up in this
"Oh, that will do. He won't mind."
Aud they tumbled him into the boat and
took bim on shore. If you've ever tried to
step out of a boat on a shelving beach you
know how it is yourself. Ho did it. He
stepped clear into the water and went roll?
ing. Here was a quandary. Tho residents
gathered the wet consul up, took him to a
store and got him into a $12 hand-mo down
suit, which didn't fit him. It tool: a long
time to argue him into going then. Bui
they would have it, and oil'they went.
"Look hero ! I don't feel comfortable at
all going up to the palace to make my first
appearance as consul in this miserable con?
dition. Where is the palace ? Are we near
"Quite. There it is."
He looked aud taw a conical mud hut
with two square holts cu opposite sides, and
a gentle smoke floated up through the point
of the roof, which was apparently a veut
"That's the palace. The king and queeu
are in there waiting for you."
They entered. In the centre, in what
looked like n kind of mire, sat a fat, black,
dignified fellow, whose protection from the
inclemency of the weather was a wisp of
cotton tied around his waist. By his side
sat a small, dark lady of acquiescent, con?
tented mien, whose toilet had all fallen
arouuti iier waist, too?at least, she hadn't
any anywhere elso.
"Hullo !"' said the new comer in the lan?
guage o; the country. "Hullo, old chap,
how are you ?" Then more politely, "This
is tho new consul from America."
The new consul, who had been practicing
his bow ever since his application had been
filed, made an obeisance; when a pig sud?
denly ran in by one entrance, skipped be?
tween bis genuflections, landed him head
first in the inire and .-kipped out by tho op?
posite hole in the hut. All dignity was out?
raged, but the king didn't mind it nor did
the numerous royal family who lay around
promiscuously without any toilet at all.
"That's all right, old boy," said the res?
ident, to the embarrassed consul. "We've
got up a bail for you to-night, and you'll see
tho fing and queen in style there."
So the consul got his trunk out, got his
diess suit, his white tie, his white gloves
and his patent leathers ready and presented
himself at the "hotel" where the ball was to
be. The hotel was a wooden frame with a
mud roof. The king and queeu entered in
grand style,' with a little more toilet, of a
loose kind, and the new consul came in
with the king's sister, a uoblo princess, and
they all liad a royal night of it. Before the
new consul had gone to bed in the morning
the princess royal returned from the palace,
paid him a special call and solicited his
washing. He does not look for any dignity
in hispositiou now. He is looking for profit.

Rough on the Husband.?The 3Ian
i ehester (England) Covricr tells a good story.
I Lady Arden had the toothache. AH reme
I dies failed. She decided to send to Edin- ;
j burgh, fifty miles from Clydesdale Castle, j
i for a deutet. When he arrived she declared ;
, that uer nerves were in such conditiou that
Bhe could not submit to the operation unless :
she saw it performed on some one eise first.
No one offering himself as a sacrifice, she
1 told Lord Arden that he must have a tooth
out in order that she might judge whether
she could endure the operation. He ap
: peared very much disconcerted, and expos?
tulated to no purpose, and finally, like an
i obedient husband, submitted, aud had a
i sound tooth drawn from bis jaw. after j
I which she declared th-at she had seen enough ?
j to convince her that she could uot endure i
I the operation.
