The Exploits or a Pet Hon.
One of oar Marion County lady friends
had a pot lieu which felt quite at homo
anywhere in the house. Quarterly
meeting Wjus elose at hand and tho
preacher wa3 coming; eggs were scarce,
and only a few dozen could be had.
The lady was Hying atound in a great
hurry getting ready to cook upthe cake
and other nice things, while tho hen
was poking around in the house hunting
for a suitab'e place to make herself
a nest; she decide I that the wash-bowl,
sitting on the water-shelf, was. the vry
place, but before she could be suitably
nestled the bowl fell to tho lloor and
broke into a thousand pieces. This
vexed our lady friend a little, but she
kept her temper like a Christian, and
went on about her work. It wasn't
long before the hen had tumbled from
the table to the lloor a whole set of
plates. This would have been a sore
trial to patient old Job, but the lady
went on with her work, humming
"Sweet-by-and-by," to keep up her
spirits, Now the new spring hat sat on
the center table in one of the rooms,
'Where some of the lady neighbors who
had dropped in to see it had left it, and
it was on the bandbox the lady had in
Ker hurry set a pan with five dozen
eggs (all that she had to make cakes
lor the pre iche s) and hurried into the
store-room. The pet hen cime
around in the icnm, and right into
the pan of eggs she nestled, and, of
course, the bandbox, pan and eggs all
tumbled to the lloor. There was a general
mixture that is, the eggs and the
hat became one and the same. When
the lady, attracted by thp noise, got to
the door and saw the condition of things,
she was mad, good mad, vjry mad. She
could afford for the wash-bowl and new
plates to be broken, but for all the
eggs she had to go into the cake
to be broken, and the hat everlastingly
ruined, was too much for her
Christian resignation, and, in the language
of "Uncle1' Steve Pearson, when
the hog turned over his sirup, she
wanted to turn over the house. Tho
lad weighs considerably over a hundred,
and the day was warm, but she
ran that hen down, and mentally vowed
that the preachers should eat her. For
safe-keeping the hen was put in a strong
coop. . In an hour the hen was foiln 1 in
the woo l-box, setting in the corner of
the room, and there were found two

A Fashionable Calamity.
; Among tho recent calamities reported
by Par's newspapers is a terrible mishap
thatbe'ell a leader of fashion at Trouville
the other day. At French seaside resorts
it is well established that any
laxly endowed with the le.'ist self-respect
must change her dress irom head to
foot at least four times a day, and were
she to wear the same costume twice
during her sojourn by the ocean she
would irrel rie vably forl'e't her status as a
"lionne." 'ihe fashionable lady referred
to had ma le arrangements to stay- at
Trouville , ust a fortnight, and had therefore
brought down toilets, just
enough to satisfy the minimum requirements
of the place. Cm umstances of a
domestic nature required her to remain
.- there four days longer than she had contemplated,
and her consternation at her
unfortunate predicament cannot ejLsily
be imagined. What was she to do? Sho
could not appear in a dress she had
. already been "seen in." There was but
one allernath e and she had to accept
. that. She retired to her room and
t remained injiero'c se.dusion, not daring
to venture out even after dark, lost
a too keen eye should detect her
ehortcomings. French Paper.
