It was the delay of but a few minutes
to exchange his embroidered slippers for
snugly fitting boots, nnd to hang away
tlio bnglit colored dressing gown, with
its crimson lining and vividly tinted
silk tassels and Mr. Dater was just pre
pared to emerge into tlio street, when
Uioro was a rustle ol sott draperies alonir

carrying a roscy baby in her arms, con-
"Aro you going down town so soon.

and ai'tcward displaying it wedged tight

of his hand.
"Yes, but I wantod to speak to you
before you wont away this morning."
"Speak away, then, my love ! Hallo,
you yir!" (to tlio baby) : "linve you no
respect for your venerable father's whis
kers?" Mrs. Dater hesitated and colored tv
little as she played witii tho baby's blue
find white worsted sook. Mrs Dater
was a blonde, and the creeping shadows
of crimson were rather becoming to hor
"Edward," she said, hurriedly, as if
the subject were one she would fain get
over as soon as possible, "I would like a
little money to-day, if you could spare it
just as well as not."
"Money, Alarm, money!" Air. Da
tor trilles no longer with tlio crowing
baby ; but stood up very straight, with
his eyebrows elevated, and his eyes ex
ceedingly wido open and unwinking,
"I believe you had your month's allow
ance as usual, Mrs. Dater!"
"Yes, but 1 havo had more than tho
usual housekeeping expenses to meet
within the last lew days," explains his
wife nervously. "The cook has raised
her wages from fourteen dollars to six

"Gel n new cook, tlion !"
"But Ellen is so neat and economical;
I really do not think I should bo con

change. Besides, the wntcr-pipes have
been out of order, and tho bill lias como

"Lsee l see. my dear," interrupted
Mr. Dater, irritably; "you can spare

conveniently serve to hide tho simple
tacioi extravagance and bad manage

Mrs. Dater bit her lip nnd colored
"Edward, you have no right to make

"So you think, Maria, no doubt; but

"Ono hundred and fifty dollars a
