So Bpoke Jerry Thompson to his wife, as ho
camo in w amucr one aay last summer. Mr.
Thompson was a boss carpenter, making a
good living, and all the money ho received from
his business excepting only a email amount
of pocket-money, which ho reserved ho placed
In Mrs. Thompson's hands, who managed to
let It slip through her fingers almost as fast as
It was received. On the morning of the abovo
day, Jerry had received fifty dollars In advanco
for work ho had agreed to perform and he, as
usual, had given It to his wife to take enru of.
Ills last words to bis wife, on leaving iho houso
In tho morning, wcro, "Now, Kitty, havo a
good dinner for mo to-day." As sho said she
would endeavor to please him, by placing on
the tablo an excellent noonday meal, ho had
let his Imagination roam a little in conse
quence At first ho wondered ichat Ihcro v ould
bo for dinner) then ho hoped It would be chick
ens. Yes, chickens would bo nlcet ho had not
had any well, ho could not remember when
they UI havo any. Again he thought green
turtlo soup would be nicer aud then changing
his mind, ho hoped Kitty wonld think to git
some green pens afld lamb, which, with straw
betrv short-cake for dessert, would form an ex
cellent dinner. If there was ono thing that
Jerry Thompson Hkod better than all else. It
was siraw oerry snori-cako, wuu pieniy oi
With such thoughts chasing each other
iurougumsmina,anu with an appemo mucn
lncroasod by hit expectations, at tv ulvo o'clock
ho wended his way home, thinking ho scented
tho odor of a savory dinner whllo jet at the
Eate. On opening tho door of tho dInlogroom,
owever, his disgust at seeing aud imclling tho
detested codflth can hardly bo imagined. IIo
was wllling.to adroit that some codtlsh Is good
and wholesome, and all thatj but w ho wants to
feed continually on It 7 Jerry did not, at all
events, and ho spoke accordingly. After he
left the house again, to resume his work, Mrs.
Thompson "fixed up" that Is, put ou her best
and with a friend of hcr's went shopping:
Bhe was gone all tho afternoon, and. after
(Dcndlni: all tho monev her husband had civen

Poor Jerry I there oro moro husbands than
you who are thus treated, and who havo to
tako figuratively speaking "codtlsh aud po

too, for that matter Just because their wives
sco tit to be extravagant, and put all their poor
husbaud'a hard-earned money on their 'own
backs. It would bo well for all husbands If
they, unllko Jerry Thompson, huvo no hlgku
aspirations than to gratify their appetites. It
Is useless for men whoso who posm-ss disposi
tions akin to that of Mrs. Thompson to try to
attain wealth and position, for their connubial
partners' will prove a nig tit mar 0 to them aa
long as they Uto.

At Fcggekllt, tho birth-place of Hamlet, or
Amlcth, as he Is called In Denmark, Baxo
Grammatlcns' story of the Trlnce of Jutland
has i special end powerful Interest. Accord
Ins to the ancient fian-ae. thorn M
brothers, Itaardrevendol, tbe father of Hamlet,
and Fcngo. They lived In porfoct friendship
for many years, the ono resting while tho other
went on a piratical expedition. On ono occa
sion, however, when Uaardrovcndel returned,
laden with spoils, and his wife, (leruthe, rfr
eelved htm with extraordinary ilAmnnatratinna
of affection, Fcngo, fired by jealousy, resolved
to stop at home, and possess himself both of
111s uromoT's wcaim ana wire.
Pretending that Oe rati 10 Is badly troated by
his brother, lie slays tho latter. Then Amleth,
fearful of a llko fata. Mem Imanit tt.
king half suspecting that Amlcth Is only play
ing o part, orders him to bo closely wstchodi

on a heap of straw (In her majesty's bod-room,)
ho feels something underneath, runs his sword
through, and withdraws tho dead body of tho
spy. lie cuts It Into pieces, bolls It, and gives
It to tho pigs. Then turning to his mother,
who was weeping over his madness, ho ad
dresses to her tho most violent rcproachca. "If
yon will grieve, weep not over my madness,
but your own shame and dishonor."
Fcngo, moro anxious than before to get rid
of such a stepson, sends him to England. In
iuiuuu Ainictn tun acts as a madman, and
puzzles and alarms the King and Queen by his
extraordinary parables and sarcasms. He event'

daughter In marriage. After a year's absence,

About a century and a half tea Fcnsro'a crravo
waa opened, and an Iron sword taken from its
but whero tho weapon was placed Is unknown.
Tho sequel of the legend Is curious enough.
After Amlcth has arranged all his affairs In
Denmark, bo returns to England to sea his
father In-law. To add pomp to tho visit, he
causes a shield to bo mado, on which are en
graven all tho doods ho prides himself In, and

The shields of his followers ho also gilds
richly, and, after a propitious voyage, lands at
his destination, la gladly welcomed, and soon
after presented by his queen with a prince.
Tbo English monarch inquires after Fcngo.
Amlcth confessed all. Fcngo had been tho
English king's ally, to whom ho was bound by
a sacred oath. IIo U, therefore. In a quandary
whether to keep his oath and avenge Fcngo
by destroying Amlelli, or to spare tho latter for
tho sako of his daughter. Ho resolved at last
to repress his feelings for the present) but Am

offender, and clear his long-burdened con
science. Accoruingiy, no eenas Ami em on an
embassy to Scotland, to solicit for him tho
hand of tho Scottish queen, who, ho knew,
would refuse, and was In thu habit of slaying
all who approached her on any matrimonial
errand. Arrived In Scotland, Amlcth alts down
by a river's hank to rest. Hero, as ho sleeps.
a spy of tho Scottish queen removes his shield
and tho bag containing tho Ejgllsh king's let
ters. After perusing the latter, tho queen changes
tho characters ao that Amlcth may bo ordered
to demand her In marriage for himself. Tho
spy returns to tho spot, and replaces tho letters
as ho found them. Amlcth catches the spy,
but goes before Queen Hermentrudo, and sho
"proposes" siraiguiway (prouaoiy 11 waa a
leap year). Amlcth consents with a gushing
readiness, and tho nuptials over, they set out
for tho English court. Amlcth Is thero met by
his former wtfo, whom ho had supposed dead,
to bla utter amazement, and her estimate of
iiis conauct is communicated, to him In lau-

Amleth, however, against her father, who
seeks to kill him.
Several conflicts occur between Amleth and
