A man who Is poor utul wants to llvo
on tho fat ot tho land, marries a
piclly. little, rich wimnm, and hiylim
to tupiamlor her money, and when ru
tries to pcistmilo him to slop It, ho

her, and after awhile she gets enough
of It and obtains n divorce, and marries
:i man who loves her and doesn't wimi
her money, nnd she Is happy, and
her former husband becomes a dead
beat and a drunkard and would fiiln
beg for Iho refuse thntdiops from the
table of his former wife, and when be
buttons his mimmereoiit around htm

a blouk for n wind pudding, and look
Into the windows and sees tho light if
tho lire from tho grate of his Ibrmir
wife's Hlttlng-rooni, It occurs to him
that If he had not attempted to beat
two-foitv with a tlircomltiuto horse,
ho could have been in there toasting
his slippers and drinking elder, and
looking into n pulr of eyes that would
have always looked their lovo for him,
If he had been contented witli a
three-mlnuto gait, but which eys will
nurer look upon him again except in
pity. O, theic are thousands of people
whomukea mlhutko In trying to beat
two-forty with a tlireo-minuto horse.
It Is related of n Poiuthkeepsle, New
York, congregation that they have
iiisLdismissed their minister because
ho rebuked two christians who were
smoking in a horse car, wore a flannel
shirt at a wateringplaceand performed
the dangerous undertaking of putting
food in Ids mouth with a knife instead
of a fork. That preacher may pass for
a reformer yet, but he must slop eat
ing with a knife. That is positively
It isstuingo to observo that when
Mr. ireudiieks recovered the use of
liis- great toe, tho McDonald move
ment suddenly disappeared from pub

tho ex-governor has developed uusus
