THEY CARRIED IT TOO FAR.
Mr. Butterwick called in to see im the
other day, aud in the course of the conver

They're the awfulest people to borrow
things that I ever saw. Coffee, and butter,
and sugar, and Hour, I don't mind so much;
although when a woman Iwrrows hish

buck sand and chiekory, a man naturally
feels mad. But they've borrowed pretty
near everything in the house. First it is
one thing and then another, from morning
till night, right straight along.
"Now, the re's the poker. A poker is a
piece of machinery that you'd think any
body would go around and buy, or if they
couldn't afford it, they might use a fence
paling to shake up the tire. But Mrs.
Johnson seems to hanker after our poker.
Sin: borrows it fifteen or twenty times a
day, and last Saturday she sent for it thirty
four times. She pays a boy two dollars a
week to run over and borrow that poker;
and she used it so much that it's licnt like

asks us to lend her our chairs three times a
day at every meal and she borrows th
rocking-chair every time she wants to put

sofu, and when the boy came back with it,
he said Mrs. Johnson was mad as thunder,
and kept growling around the house all day
because there is no casters on it. Last Mon
day slie borrowed our wash-boiler, and we'
had to put off our washing till Tuesday.
She did her preserving iu it, and the con
sequence was our clothes were full of pre

shirt now that I'm mighty doubtful if I'll
ever get it off, it's stuck so tight.
"Every now and then she has companv,
and then she borrows our hijed girl and all
the parlor furniture. Once, because I
wouldn't carry the piano over for her and
take down the chandelier, she told our girl
that there were rumors' about town that I
had turned pirate,
"Perfectly scandalous! They think noth

steads or the entry carpet, and the other

"'Butterwick, does your pump log pull

Mrs. Johnson said she reckoned we might

boy said Mrs. Johuson told him if I
wouldn't send over the front door, to
ask Mrs. Butterwick to lend her a pair of
striped stockings and a horse-hair bustle,
