For several days S. W. Kirk, F.sj.,
bus been referred to by the married
ladies of West Water street in their
husbands' presence, as the model litis
band of the village. Attorney Kirk
has just commenced housekeeping and
like all new beginners is very cnthusi
iistio. In his present frame of mind
ho would much prefer putting up' an
obstinate tove-pipe to ucccpting a lib
cral fee; sinking nnd tacking down
carpet is Midi an apparent luxury as
would make him forego a baii(uet,
and the other Innumerable things that
the common herd of husbands (.'fowl
at- and speak of in unpretty terms are
looked upon by hint as mere airy tri
(les tlm doing of which only adds to
his felicity. We hope this will keep
going on and on have the gift of continuance-

the measles, chicken-pox and similar
outbreaks that one catches but once
in a lifetime. Seriously, we trust there

sun wore a dark cloudy veil, the
heavens seemed to have gone in
mourning, and four was entertain

tears in the form of rain-drops
before tho day had fulfilled its
mission and gone to rest behind
the mountains of eternity. Nev

rpuet of roses. She was quite
composed and fhe looked very
sweet and lovely. Mr. McDowell
wore the conventional black. His
countenance betrayed tho su
preme happiness of his heart.
They stood under a handsomely
decorated bell which was suspend

now heard breaking the spell of
profound silence, it was the voice
of Rev. J. G. Rose, (Presbyteriau)
of Mercersburg, imploring divine
