Young Charley Overblower
married about a month ago, and
of when he came home from his
wedding tour, he and his pretty
es little wife Emma took posses
sion of a charming cottage up
o town. Early one -evening, after
they were fairly fettled, and the
last of Emma's sisters had been
- induced to conclude her visit,
Charley proposed to Emma that
they should go to the concert.
The wife assented, and both
began to amend their toilets. In
a few moments Charley said:
"Darling, I am very sorry to
trouble you; but really I think I
shall be obliged to have to ask
you to sew a button on this
,e "Of course; why not ?" said
d Emma delighted at a chance to
ºt show her skill. the took the
ngal ment, seated herself, and
said: "I can't remember for
the life of me where I put those
buttons. Charley, look in that
box and see if you can find one."
Charley looked in the box,
which was a case of perfume
bottles, and not finding the de
sired articles,concluded he would
not bother Emma for further ini
formation, so he pulled a button
from another shirt.
"Now, Charley," said Emma,
"look in the top bureau-drawer
and get me a paper of needles
and a spool of white cotton-be
sure to 'get the white cotton."
Charley found in the top bu
reau drawer a copy of Tennyson 1
-he remembered it well, and
picked it up and looked at the
marginal marks and comments, t
dear affectionate little girl that (
she was !-and amore perfume t
bottles, and a pattern of a Flor t
de Fumer overskirt, and the be
ginning of a sofa-cushion, and
various other things, but no i
needle or cotton. Then he re
membered that he had a fancy
"housewife" that he had bought f
from a girl at a fair, and he got a
needles and cotton out of that. n
"Thank you, dear," said Em- "
ma, and she began to stitch vi- tl
gorously, humrning a dreamy 6
Italian air. Presently she said: t<
'"Oh, Charley, won't you biing I"
me the scissors? I think they're tl
in my writing desk. I had tihem "l
there to-day cutting poem out
of a paper."
The scissors were not in the 4
writing-desk, nor on the mantel, hl
nor in the topA.heau-drawer, 31
nor in the case of perfume bot
ties, nor even in the receiver; 9
so Charley drew on his "house
wife" again. Emma took the
scissors, snipped the thread, and a.
exclaimed, "There darling ! And se
now make haste, or we will be it
late." a t
Charley wriggled into the gar- cc
ment, and then put up his hands
to button the band at the back,
but no button was there.
"Why, Em," he cried, "where
in the thunder did you sew on
that button ?"
"Oh Charley, aint you asham
ed !" exclaimed his wife. "Where
are your eyes?"
" If they were in the back of
my head," answered Charley,
"perhaps I could sere that but
Emma raised herself on her
tiptoes and looked at the band.
"Why, that's strange !" said
she; "take it off and let me look
The shirt was inspected
thoroughly, and the button was
found neatly, and defty sewed on
just beneath the tag of the shirt
boaom, so as to button to that
appendage in a most elegant
"Well, by Jove," exclaimed
Charley, "if I didn't know any
more about sewing on a button
than that, I wouldn't get mar
I'd learn how."
"You were going to say you
wouldn't have got married,"
cried his wife, putting on her hat
hastily and bursting into tears.
"Where are you going?" de
manded Charley savagely.
"Im going home, and I'1 get
a separation from you and your
old shirts; that's where I am go
ing," blubbered Emrma; "I
thought you wanted the button
there to fasten to yoer what-you
It took Charley an hour to
persuade Emma that if she went
home there wouldn't be traw
berries and cream eo..i ti go
around, and that she could get
all she wanted at Kunts's he'd
pay fur it.
The following characteriatio
anecdote 6f old Jerry Black is
told by D]on Piatt in the Capitl.
There is a grim hiuior in the
honorable 'and venerated Jere
miah Black that ills.' That
railroad aristocrat, Tom Scott,
having elaborated sa essay on
the late railroad stiikes, in which
he advocates ariihorease of the
standing army ` as a remedy,
Judge Black, with one thrust of
his pen, pins the, bird of prey to
the barn-door of public con
tempt. He suggests that as a
standing army for sut plmpose
is uneonstittrojralr and in dead
ly antagonism toe ou traditions
and principles, to .say nothing
of the cost. it would be better
for the government to pay the
laborers on the rail.rtad, and let
the officials take thef profits.
