THE DUMPS FAMILY.
I just believe Johnny's going to be the
death of some of us yet. He's the dearest.
busiest, willingest little boy that ever
lived, but only five years old. Last week
while I was trying to break a bit of kind
ling, quick as a flash he sprang forward
with a 'Let me, mother," am giving a
whack with his little hatchet, he nearly cut
my hand off. I have not been able to write
a word 6ince, and only now, with difficulty.
Every iKKly seemed to bear of my accident,
and people wrote notes and made visits of
condoleuce. Even the surgeons and doc
tors came by the score and made no
charges for their services. They declare,
as with one voice, that it is a pleasure for
them to do a favor for the Dumps family.
I have bad to repeat the details regarding
my hand about one hundred and ninty
nine times. My lady friends fill their lace
handkerchicts with tears and say, "Oh,
poor Mrs. Dumps, what a martyr you are!
VShat a soldier, what a saint, what a
Strong men bow their heads in sympa
thy, and pace my velvet carpets in smoth
ered emotion. Thev have mo tell atrain
and again how Johnny dropped a glass of
water in my face while I reclined on the
sofa. How be upset the cradle and spilt
the baby on the floor, causing it to get a
hngu bump on its dear little bald head
How he falls down the cellar stairs and
lights on the top of his head unhurt. All
these little domestic affairs are so entertain
ing now, though before I got in The Bul
letin I couldn't make a soul listen to
1 esterday Mr. D brought a couple
of his old friends home with him to dinner;
one of them was a prominent phrenologist.
The man had seen our names in tho The
Bulletin and realized what great people
we are becoming, so determined to flatter
us all he could. Ho examined the shape
of Johnny's brain and was in ecstacies over
the future man. He said Johnny was a presi
dent in the bud.
He snatched the baby from its big broth
er and went into raptures over its beauty
and intelligence. (And right there now, I
expect the man was in earnest and sincere,
for Augustus is the smartest and most lovely
cherub on earth.) Then holding the child
at arm's length and looking critically at it,
ho said ho had never seen such a fine head
He ran his fingers studiously over the
child's head and found the organs of rev
erence, benevolence and hope highly ex
pressed, aud he pronounced the bump
(ruado by the fall) a most wonderful devel
opment of language.
Daniel Webster assured him that be
could make a bigger language developc, by
bumping tho baby on the other side of
At this point of conversation wo were
startled by tho piercing screams of
Johnny. Looking out, wo saw his feet
and hands dangling in tho air, aud the
frightened child suspended by the after
part of his trousers on a spike nail driven
near tho roof of tho wood-house, He had
been jumping from the top, when ho was
checked in this providential way.
I never believed ull you editors, said
about advertising 'till after I tried it my
self; now I know you never told tho half.
A persistent tiso of printers' ink is tho high
road to fumo and fortune.
Tho people aro yet urging Mr. Dumps to
tho mayoralty, and a new clement (in
shape of the colored population) has ap
peared. It promises to elect him if ho will
only givo its color a show in office. It says
it does most ot tho Cairo voting and re
ceives no favors. It is right about that,
and Mr. Dumps is thinking the matter over.
IT. 1... I . . .....
no una out two oojoctlons to run. One
is: Ho is undecided, which party
to espouse, tho other, he really and truly
wants Mr. Winter elected. We know be
was an onergotic, good mayor, and we be-
iuvo ho would bo again. If Mr. D
dootu't run, wo will turn our influenco over
to Mr. Wintor.
Mr. and Mrs spont yesterday even-
ing'with us. They aro ono of tho wealthiest
and most respectable lamilies in town.
They wero laughing at the follies of certain
people in town who live to show off good
clothes. They said they had always no
ticed that such people dressed at the peril
of tho dry goods merchants. That they
generally had no stock but fashion, and
carried (figuratively speaking) their banks
on their backs. Well, though that may bo
true, I always pity these poor, deluded
creatures, for they have struggles and trials
that we old people wit'i comfortable homes
laid up fr ..riiiny ,ays..
never dreamed about.
Wo have so many visitors afoot and rid
ing, that there is some ono coming and go
ing in constantly. We have been obliged
to build fivo more platforms in front of our
house to accommodate tho carriages. I
sometimes wonder if our popularity will
ever become burdensome.
b Sarah is to si tig nt a concert soon, and
Louisa is to be bridesmaid at a fashionable
wedding next month.
I sec you are io correspondence with Mrs.
Dig, or at least she is writing to you.
Since you forced her to reveal her true
name, I had hoped you would reply to her
Yesterday as Mr. D was going out the
door, I asked him who sho was, and he
replied : "Sallic Dig, my dear, is an irre
sponsible, light-headed creature, with
ribbons, pretty dresses, dirty ears, and a
bad breath. Faugh
And clapping his fingers ou his nose like
a patent clothes pin, he went to tho store.
There's Johnny full in the wash-tub, and
floundering in the hot water. Gracious!
Good -by! Mrs. Daniel Dumi-s.
P. S. Johnny's drying before tho fire,
but I fear I will be obliged to quit public
letters, there's so much demand for my
time in other ways. Maybe, though, if the
people insist on it, I might write again.

Uualor in works of art utClonmel, in tho
county of Tipperary, somewhere about
the year 1880. Whether lie found that
uuying anu selling pictures was not tho
same iiungin lipperary as in Lombar

south they hud next to nothing to fear
from the cniiii(ilitiiin of stage couches,

in knocking their rivals off the road,
