A JZALOU8 HUSBAND.
The Way a Sedalia Man was
Taught by Hia Wife to Banish
Jealousy A Severe but Radical
A man with a jealous disposition rarely
makes a good husband. It is a peculiarity
of a mind o dUeased to imagine that every
friend is a lurking enemy in disguise, and
every man's hand is lifted against his peace
and happiness There are more men of this
sort in the world than people are aware of,
and the way in which they contrive to turn
the pleasantest episodes in life into gall
and wormwood, would be amusing but for
THE KKAI. MI.SKKY
the unhappy disposition occasions. There
is such a man as this in Sedalia. He is in
possesion of everything which should make
life pleasant and agreeable; has a comfor
table home, and a pretty wife and children.
Perhaps this circumstance adds fuel to his
jealousy for he imagines that every man
who looks at his wife, is in love with her.
So strong has this idea grown upon him
that he is constantly susjiecting the most
horrible things and keeps his household in
a ferment of excitement by his illgrounded
st.v icti.1 sc. srsn cii i rxs.
But such thing sooner or later have their
reward. The man who builds castles of
suspicious jualoitsy for other's ruin, is sure
to find them come tumbling about his head
to his own dismay, and such a termination
was wrought out for this man's jealousy iu
a way he will never cease to dispise. Xext
door to iiim lives a gentleman among whose
treasures is a pretty daughter. The grounds
of the places are divided by a low fence,
and thick shrubbry lends to the miniature
lawns an aspect of sylvan enchantment.
It is just such a place as lovers delight to
pmminade or sit quietly down on the soft
green grass and
which alter years will ricii or dispel.
These facts have not escaicd the quick
eyes of the jealous man's wife, and she ha
been equally quick In note th: I ujmii lovely
moonlight evening's her neighhors fair
daughter, had led her true love into those
quite shades. Iu view of the open street
and yet secured from nWrvation such a
spot is a lovers panuli. What the young
people said what vows they whispered,
mattered little but when the evenings were
bright and clear, the summer
were selling wierd and misty upon the bloom
of roses, the lovers were sure to be found
there. The gloom rendered features iudis
tinct but ti:c figures cast long shadows on
thegrass,and the whis-iered conference Smke
of love in every attitude of graceful youth
and beauty. Seeing all this the wife pre
pared her plot. She wrote a little note to
the gentleman whose regular visits gave
such apparent happiness to the girl over
the way, and appointed an interview for
herself and him in the foliage of the adjoin
ing yard. She explained tht.t her purpose
in this was to avoid any etmtrttmip with
her husband who was
The note was charmingly written and was
just the least bit compromising. This done
she dropped it, just where her husband
woutd I sure to find it, and waited the
denouement. Perhaps the yourg lady hail
been let into the secret, for her dress and
manners were strikingly like her friend's
and the interview was managed so as to
keep her features as much in the shade a-
possible. As the twilight gloom fell around
the thicklygrowing shrubs two figures nestl
ed close together on thegrass and whispe r
ed love ; when suddenly a dark form bound'
ed over the intervening fence and rushct:
uiKn the scene with a whoop like a Mo
hawk warrior's. The lady screamed am:
bid her face. The gentleman sprang to his
feet in fury.
" What do you mean sir?" he demanded
confronting the intruder.
" Oh vou vidian you sconndrel. I have
caught you have I caught you sir! "
And he litterallv foamed at the mouth
"Caught me sir how have you caught
"How dare you ask me such a question
If not that lady my wife? "
"Xot that I am aware of. "
What sir look at her. See her hiding her
face" and the infuriated man danced
around as if he were treading on fire.
The scene of delusion had lieen sufficient
ly prolonged and the young lady chose to
dispel it. Raising her face, she disclosed a
countenance which a glance sufficed to
show was not that of his wife's.

To say that he way struck dumb with
amazement would but faintly indicate his
feelings. He tried to apologise tried to
laugh off his mistake, but the attempt was
a failure. Turning abruptly to leave, he
encountered his wife at the lence, a calm
spectator of the scene.
"A nice mess you've made of it," she said.
"Do you feel any better?"
But words failed to express his ene of
the situation, and he darted off towards the
house his ears were assailed by a shout of
laughter in which three people appeared to
to be joining-

OUR " GODLESS " CHIVEKS1TY AGAIN.
The editor of the California Christian Ad-
rotate discriminates between common schools
and colleges or universities, and thinks re
ligious excersises, as reading the Bible and
prayer, "not so absolutely necessary" for
the former, but quite essential for the latter.
The former should be sustained by taxation;
but the Legislature has no right to levy a
tax for the support of academic education.'
With regard to what is called "the Godless
system of collegiate training newly inaug
urated," Dr. Benson is utterly opposed to
it, and rejoices that the will of Stephen
Girard. who gave several millions of dol
lars to establish such an institution in Phil
adelphia, was overruled by the Court on
the ground that "no college could exist
without the Scriptures and prayer." "Xo
where," he avers, "is the moral tone in such
institutions pure and elevated. The stu
dents in some ot them are so grossly immor
al that their presents Is a stench in the
community," for they are "suffcreiV. to
pleasure without check in the gratification
of appetite and pasion." What say our

such acute pain that he swooned. As he
was supposed to be dead he was thrown in
to the sea, with a grindstone attached to
sink the body. Soon after his son, despond
enl over the Ioas of his father, jumped over
board and was lost. The next day the sail
ors harpooned a whale, and on cutting
it up they heard a grinding sound inside
that they could not account for. Going on
with their work, however, the mystery was
soon solved- The whale was found to have
swallowed both the father and the son, and
the former had recovered front his swoon
