of the house, where my eyes
had been fastened in the rap

see Josiah with a conteuted
countenance, readin' tbe alma
nac, and said to him in a voice
before which he ojuailed,
"Josiah Allen yon haint
heard a word I've said, you
know you haint"
"Yes I have," says be shliiten
op tbe almanac, "I heard you
ay women ought to vote, and
I eay she hadn't. 1 shall al
ways say she is too fragile, too
delicate, it would be too hard
for her to go to the pole."
' "There is one pole you are
willin' enough t should go to,
Josiah Allen," says I with nith
eriu' dignity and self-respect,
"and thai is the' hop-pole."
(Josiah bas set out a new hop
yard, and he proudly brags to
the neighbors thai I am the
rastest picker in the yard.)
"You are willin enough I
should handle them polos." He
looked emit and conscience
struck, but still trae to the in
herent principles of bis sect,
and with their dogged obstina
cy, he murmured,
"If wimmen knewwhen they
are well off, they will let poles
and' lection boxes alone, it is
too wearin' for the, lair sect."
Says I in d tone of self re
spect almost withenn' enough

to his almanac mechanically as
it were, and 1 continued,
"And there is another pole

some ot the breath you waste
in pitying the poor women that

You hate let me pull bid that
