now to i: vu a iiomi:.
The other evening I came home with
an extra ten dollar bill in my pocket
money that I had earned by uut ot-doors
work. The fact is that 1 am a clerk m
a down store, at a .salary of ftiOO per an
num, and a pretty wife and babe to sup
port out of it.
I suppose the Income will sounu amaz
ingly small to two and three thousand
doHar oihee holders, but nevertheless we
contrive to live very comfortably upon it.
Ve live on? 'I'-or of an unprctendod little
house for which we pay ?1."0 per annum,
and Kittv my wife, you'll understand
dfii'u all her own work, so that we lay up a
neat little sum every year.
I've got a balance U two or three h'tn
dred dollars at the saving bank the hoard
of several years, ami it is astonishing how
rich I feel! Why, llothehild himself,
vr?st't a circumstance to me!
Well, 1 ca.se ho" villi my extra bill,
and showed it triumphantly to K'Cty n-h"
of course was delighted with my industry
"Now, my love," said I, "just add this
to our account at the bank, and, with in

Forthwith 1 commenced cistinjrH crest
and calculating in my brain. Kitty wa
silent, and rocking the cradle with her
" I've been thikintr, Harry," she said
after a moment's pause, that since you've
rot this extra money, we might well aflbrd
to buy a new rug. "This is getting .Jrea I
fully shabby, my dear, you mibt see."
' I looked dolefully at the rug it was
worn shabby enough, '.hat was a fact.
" 1 can get a new velvet pattern for
seven dollars," resumed my wife.
(t yt'7-:-S cm infitirs!" groaned I.
" Well, then a common tufted ng l'ke
this, would cost taily three dollars said
mv cautious better half, who, seeing she
wouldn't carry her first ambitious point
wisely withdrew her guns.
" That's more seiwolo," taid I, " we'll
toe vbout it."
il And there is another thing I want,"
continued my wife, putting her hand coax
ingly on my shoulder, and it is not at all
I saw such a bmlg sillc (lre8-pat tern
on Canal street this morning, and I can
get it for ix dollars, ojy six dollars Har
ry ! It is tho cheapest thing I ever
and I looked meaning glances at one an
other. " lhrry," said she, "tlr.t n'.g Isn't to
bad after all, and my green silk will do a
year longer with care."
And a silver vat'-h is ipii'e as rood
for all practical purposes, as a gold re
peater," Mad 1. "We will set vi do all
imaginary wants !''
" The ten dollars must go to the bank
stf.id Kitty, and I'll economize the cop
persjust as Mrs. Wihimt did. O ho
happy she will bo rmorg the rose?5 in that
cottage next spring !"
