Whereupon, yoor Charles, who had been
rather inclined to a fit of the sulks him
self, when he first entered the room, began j
to think that-" pttrhtpi and here one lit
tle Toot, after struggling through the scanty
drapery of shawl and 'flounce, began swing

certainty of purpose, that tho poor fellow
couldn't sit still -perhaj -Something might
have happened; and having been solemnly
cautioned over and over agatn, by nobody
knows ' how many well-wishers of the
family, to say nothing of his mother-in-Uw,
never to thwart his young wife, lest
he might have cause to be sorry for it the
longest dny he had to live no matter why
he dotcrmiued to gulp down the rising
bitterness of his heart, and have another
pull at the soothing system. But no the
more ho tried tho moro sho wouldn't he

bridal tantrums and lying flat on her
faco, with ber head buried in the pillows
of a low deep couch, and a magnificent
shawl wrapped round her and growing
worse and worso every moment.,' .
Well I thought her husband there most
bo something to pay; and I'd give a trille
to know what. "Jenn! Jonn dear!"
At this moment, tho bell rang, and be

a dooont ezouse for flubbed cheeks, and
red cyos, and a rumpled drew tho door
opened slowly, and in Walked very slowly
no less a personage than uncle Joo a
bachelor uncle, stout and free spoken
stately and testy upon whom all the
hope of all the family were fixed.
"ITttlloo! hoity-toity what's in tho

tho lady of the house lurrying off at one
door, while he entered at the other. "Ain't

out a laughing together..- . r :. v ,'vi .-.

was a bit of a humorist in his "wdyand
very" fond1 of . mischief, giving Jenny a
pinch,' and Charles a wink, which brought
the color into her cheeks. And i.i,1a Mm

as if he would novcr stop, till the chair
creaked and trembled in every joint, and
the poor wife looked at her husband in
dismay, expecting every moment. to see
his dear, old good-for-nothing uncle Joe,
pitching head foremost among the glitter
ing fragments of her china; orsprawlin at
his whole length upon the floor.'' '"'"'' ' " '
And then there was a lull a'nd tben
another boisterous outbreak: . and. then
there was a JiUlo playful questioning,' and
then it. turned out that the marriage
promise referred to by the wife, was about.
swearing; arid that when the husband came
inio me room ani, she ,aked, ham about
tho weather, and he answered a little pet
tishly perhaps, that it was n'damp cohl deih,
the had mistaken what lo had said for

promise made to her. literally on her mar
riage day, and not before, In tho season of
courtship and she found not. nnlv tV.!
he had forgotten thai promise but 'hat he 1
was incline to Jc's. with it,' and turn the
whole off with a laugh no wonder she
iad a swelling of the heart, and lost her
patiuco and threw herself upon her' face
and wrapped herself up iq whatever hap
pened to bo nearest and forgot her feet,
aud her husba,ud. ... -
This all'uir settled, and another long and
hearty laugh another yet, and yet another
being over uncle Joe turned suddenly
upon his nephew and asked him, with the
look of a thoughtful man of business, if
he had made up his mind to insure. '
Tho nephew seemed puzzled for' a
moment and thcii he answered no. He
liked tho plau but really uncle Joe must
excuse hiiu. ,' a - tv . '. ;.
''But undo Joo wont cxenso you. 'You
mve no right to run such risks. What is
to become of your wife and children it
you should have any; and happen to die
in hurry, as vountr men alwava do?"
nero Jenny oaught her husband's bands
between her'e, and eat gazing into his eyes,
with a look of unutterable tenderness.
Don t uncle, don't! I can't bear it!" she
whispered. . .
"Hold your tongue child you're a gooae.
You don't know what vour're talking
about, I want Charles to iusure his life
t's all the property bo's got, or is likely
to have." , ' ,
"Life property I don't . understand
you, undo Joe.".
"I dare sny not. Allow mo to make
myself clear. People imsuro their ship,
and houses, and profits and leave what
is moro valuable to themselves, to their
families, and to their creditors, uninsured
that is their lives. Life is not only pro
perty, but always the best property a man
has will not a man give all that he has
for his life."
"Yes, uucle but to assure one'a lift
seems to me to bo wicked, uncle Joe, our
life is in the hands of our. Maker; and lit
is for him to assure it.'1!
t ."Nonsei'Be, are not our ships and houses
in the hands of our Maker? our crops

him to take the whole care of these off our

' "Certainly not, 'when we insure a ship
we' don't say 'that she cannot' go to tho bot

pay for her, and the owner' shall not go to
the bottom with her, a ruined and dis
couraged man . So with fire, we don't say,
that if you insure, houses wont burn, but
simply, that if they do burn we will pay
for them, and save the owners from ruin
