A Bad ttcglnning
Here is a story told by a city curate
to whom the experience hap ened on
the occasion of his first wedding The
rector had told him to be careful to fill
up the register with the correct ages oi
the bride and bridegroom The cere
mony having been gone through the
happy couple who were of mature age
adjourned to tho vestry to sign the reg
ister
The bridegroom when asked his age
gave it at once as 60 but the bride
with the modesty natural to tho sex
merely said she was of full age while
when remonstrated with she pertly field
the curate that it was not the first time
she had gone through the ceremony and
she meant to insist upon her rigbte
Finally ns the bride remained ob
durate the bridegroom thinking to put
matters straight told the curate the age
Far from serving as the oil on the wa
ters this only made matters worse for
the bride flow into a passion and insist
ed upon the bridegroom tolling her how

Not So Easily Deceived
It is laughableand sometimes sad
tooto see the devices adopted by the
people who take a pitcher or a can to
the saloon for beer I i
A man has no way to hide it and he
Is generally the most sensitive on tho
subject Sometimes he will put it in a
paper Often he will take out a largo
bottle and stuff it in his pocket and I
saw one man hide n pitcher with his
broad brimmed hat and saunter away
from a saloon bareheaded
Women use their aprons as covers
though J pever observed onq yet who
didnt make her errand all the more
eonspipuous by this means
One servant girl placed a can of beer
at tho foot of a babys perambulator and
covered it with a shawl and I expected
the amber fluid to scatter in all direo
tions
I knew of one woman who used to
send out a tin can marked milk =
often tho stage fashion of labeling poi
sons liquors etcbut I dont think it
ever Deceived any oneNew York Re

1 have to look back on JJ said Adam
Johnson is tho fact that I was one ujf
ho party that helped to run op the
American colors over Cleopatras needle
When it was being taken down to ba
carried to New York Our vessel was
out in tho Mediterranean with a roving
commission and wo wore at Alexandria
at the time the obelisk was being mov
ed The big stone had been presented by
the Egyptian government to this coun
try but the people were wild about hav
big it moved We had to place a guard
around the men who were working on
the shaft and even then there was al >
most a riot
But that was one of the prettiest
pieces of engineering work I lave ever
seen The engineers who were moving
our shaft had a couple of big wooden
cases built that fitted around the needle
like the pieces of wood around the lead
In a pencil There were couple of pro
jectiles on each side of the casings just
on the center of gravity in the shaft
like the trunnions on a cannon Under
these they put lifting jacks and just
picked that immense stono off its
pedestal swung it around horizontal
and then lowered it as gently as could
be on a ong sliding way with cannon
balls under it for rollers They had a
square hoi out in the stern of the
steamship and slid it into the hull
through that and replaced the sheathing
outside
Under the shaft in tho inside of the
pedestal there were a lot of bronze toads
and ornaments and the Lord knows what
not that the Masons claimed were placed
there by some of their progenitors eons
ago I dont know anything about that
hou h and you can leave it or take it
es ycj choose
The British were not half so slick
with the obelisk they carried over to
England They cased it up in a big
sheet iron arrangement like a boiler riv
eted it in and floated the whole thing
off through a trench dug in the sand
down to the watoivaftilhoa they rigged
jury sails on it aria towed it over to
England but they lost three or four
men off it before they got it in port anti
had all sorts of a time generally
A couple of years afterward I sav
the British obelisk set up on the east
bank qf the Thames and when I came
home the first thing I went to see was
ours in Central park Washington
