said he did. I said, 'Suppose you

not bo guilty of any misdemeanor

better still?' . He said he would.
'Snpposo yon make a law so perfect
that ho shall rest, retire, labor regu-

courtecy for cleaniliness.' This was
tiipceially the case with Col. S
when dining with his friend Holmes.
No sooner was he seated at the table
than, not liking tho appearance of his
glass, he began polishing it with his
napkin His host noticed tho action,
and said, uneasily, to tho waiter,
'Change the colonel's glass." Anoth
er glass was brought, whereupon the
colonel picked up his napkin and re
commenced his cleaning process.
"How dare you bring dirty glasses
hire?" cried Holmes, angrily. ("Take
it away and bring another." . A third
glass . was set before the colonel, who
coolly set to work as before. ; Holmes,
too furious to speak, motioned to the
servant., who once more changed tho
glass. This time the colonel lost pa
tience, .and, turning angrily around,
exclaimed, '-do you want me to wipe
all the glasses in the house?" The
harmonious conclusion of the dinner
may bo imagined.'

POOR RICHARD'S ALMANAC.
Below will be found a few selections
from "Poor liichard's Almanac," the
! author of which is generally known
to be Benjamin Franklin :
An egg to-day is worth more than
a hen to-morrow. .
If pride leads the van, poverty
brings up the rear.
God heals, and ths debtor takes up
the fees. '
Mary's mouth costs ber nothing, for
tho never opens it but at another's
fxpense.- ' . ' "' .'".
He that can travel well afoot keeps
a good horso. 1 ' '';
The worst wheel of a cart makes
the most noise.'
He that falls in love with himsolf
will have no rivals.
A false friend and a shadow attend
only while the sun shines. '
If you would not bo forgotten as
