MINNIE'S WEDDING DAY.
How we got through the dressing in
time, I don't know. That dreadful Miss
Minlrin, the milliner, never sent home
my veil till nearly 10 o'clock; and as
soon as I had put my dress on we dis
covered that the said intelligent Miss
Minken had left all the tackings in. It
was 10:45 before they began to put on
my veil, and everybody knows what
tame that takes. And there was poor
darling Fred down in the church, in a
terrible state I was certain. He had
come over bo early. I saw him drive
past to the church y.hen I was only

was in my toilet. Not very far, I know.
After a great deal of fussation, during
which I had asked Pipcher Pipcher is
my maid three times for the powder
putt when I meant the pins, and four
times for my goloshes when I meant
gloves. Oh, dear, what a long sentence!
well, after all this, 1 was ready at last
Pipcher pulled out the train of my
dress to its uttermost length; and leav
ing its extreme end somewhere near my
bedroom window, 1 proceeded to walk
down stairs, concluding that I, like Bo-
peep's sensible sheep, should manage to
bring my tail behind me.
Down in the hall was dear papa, pac
ing to and fro in a perfect fever of ex
citement, nervousness and sorrow, which.
dear good man, he tried to conceal, but
failed miserably. 1 suppose he was sorry
to be losing his little girl. Suppose I I
know be was. Was not 1 sorry very,
very sorry to be leaving him,
He had put on his cloves twice al
ready, and had taken them off, and was
proceeding for the third time to do like
wise, when he discovered that he had a
pair of shabby old driving gloves, in
stead of the white kids that were slum

between one very high white collar and
two very large pocket handkerchiefs. 1
was by no means in the sprightly mood
in which I may now seem to be indulg
ing. On the contrary, I felt particularly
sober, quiet and nervous; with a great
rump surging ever upward in my throat,
and no strength at all in my knocking
"Well, my dear," said papa, feebly
jocular " ready at last ?"
And I, having nothing more original
to remark in response, intimated that
And so off I went. The bridesmaids
had, of course, gone down to the church
lflng before. I was a great deal too
frightened and flustered to say a word
to papa as we walked along the garden
path, and through the garden gate into
the churchyard. There was no need for
carriages. And, luckily, the day was
mild, though in the winter; and bright
I cannot attempt to describe the scene
in church. -1 only saw a great, misty
sea of laces and parti-colored raiment,

darling he's not a bit old, you know,

I fancied, but very loving all the same.
The organist was playing as we moved
up the aisle; but what I have not the
faintest conception. The only thing
that I recollect in connection with the
musical portion of the service was that
the choir seemed to be a very unneces
sary long time in getting through the
psalm set forth for the special purpose.
I also have a recollection that I poked
out the wrong finger of the wrong
hand to receive the ring, whereat Fred,
got very red and flustered; and as,
just at this juncture, somebody dropped
a ponderous family prayer-book, the
loose leaves of which fluttered gracefully
in various directions, this interesting
portion of the marriage ceremony was
hardly performed with befitting dignity.
However, "all things glad or sad"
must have an end. So an end duly came
to the service ; and, leaning on my dar
ling's arm, my own true husband now

place in one room, or the breakfast laid
and the speeches made in another:
Fred's short response, or the doctor's
rounded rhetoric; or the howling of
darling's dog Soddles, when Muggles,
the waiter we had in from Blankton-super-Mare,
trod heavily on his tail,
vainly endeavoring to look as though

Oh, what should I do, with all the lug

and myself, in my smart, now tilings, an
unmistakable case of bride ? And by

What would Fred do? If he wer.t to
telegraph to the hotel to meet me on my
supposed arrival, what would the people
at the hotel think ? But perhaps he
would send a message to Didcot to catch
me there. This possibility cheered me
considerably. bo I dried my tears,
smoothed my disordered hair, pitched
my bonnet into, its pristine shape, blew
my nose, and sat bolt upright in readi
ness for Didcot ; for by this time we
were visibly slackening speed. I let
down the windows for two reasons ; in
hopes that the fresh air would blow
away the traces of my tears ; and in or-
der to be perfectly prepared to jump out

sure would restore my husband to me.

A Big Baby.
That fat baby in Milford, Ct, has had
his photograph taken. The picture
shows him naked, and seated too fat to
tumble over. His legs and arms are
huge collops of flesh, and his abdomen
is a sight to see. His big cheeks and
firmly lifted head complete a face which
wears an expression like' a man's. He
was six months old when the picture
was taken, and his weight then was
thirty-six pounds a weight determined
not even " in his stockings." Hartford

unsettled feeling prevailed, and values
were irregular and subject to both frequent

Eite-flyinK has been quite an epidemic
of late at Southbridge, Mass. Not long
since the boys raised a monster, fourteen
feet long, which required several men
to manage. A man of large proportions
and heavy weight offered to bet that
he could hold him." The bet was
auicklv taken, and the too confident in
dividual tied the cord around his waist
and grasped it with his hands, but
sooner had he said ' Let go " than
went over walls and jrardens, and was
glad enough, after yelling like mad,
be rescued from his perilous position.
