One Sided Talk With Her Devoted
Hiibiod About tlie House and the
Tilings That Are In It.
Copyright, 1900. by C. B. Lewis.
When supper had been concluded.
Mr. Gallup sat down to read a pan
ph'.et descriptive of the Wiggins wash
Ing machine, and Sire. Gallup flung a
shawl over her head and ran over to a
neighbors to give warning that the
chicken pox had broken out in a town
only ten miles away and would proba
bly sweep the whole country before it
could be staid. It was hardly a quar
ter of an hour before she returned, and
her first action was to pitch forward
on the lounge and roll over three times
before she got settled down into a com
fortable position to do some weeping,
Her conduct ought to have attracted
immediate attention, but it didn't. Mr.
Gallup was reading a declaration from
the sole Inventor and proprietor that
the Wiggins washing machine bad sav
"SHE BUST INTO TEAKS."
ed the public 1,000,000 pounds of soap
In the last year, and the family clock
might have stopped without his taking
notice of it. When about 50 sobs and
sighs and groans bad failed to arouse
him, Mrs. Gallup sat up and said:
"Samuel, you know I went over to
see Mrs. Taylor. As she has 'leven
children and is alius willin to lend me
her flatirons. 1 thought it only right to
tell her that the whole 'leven might be
taken down with chicken pox any min
it. 1 hadn't hardly got my mouth open
before she bust into tears and put her
arm around me. She wasn't cryiu on
account of the chicken pox. but on my
account I bad bad news for her, but
she had badder for me. Don't you
want to know what it was?"
Mr. Gallup didn't. He was reading
a testimonial from the wife of a gov
ernor that the Wiggins washer bad
brought joy to her household when ev
erything else had failed, and he was
deaf to the outside world. Mrs. Gallup
waited a reasonable time for a reply
and then said:
"The news she had to tell me.
Samuel, was that I bad but three days
to live. If I hadn't gone over there she
would have come over here, as she
thought I ought to be makiu ready.
That's Mrs. Taylor all over. She's alius
doin suntbin for other folks. You must
remember when Saray Ann Spooner
died? And "you remember when Uncle
Goodrich was hooked to death by a
cow? Waal, Mrs. Taylor bad warnin
three days ahead that both of 'em was
goin to perish. Her clock suddenly
stopped with a whlr-r-r-r, and both
hands p'inted in a certain direction. At
5 o'clock this afternoon the clock stop
ped ag'in and the bauds p'iuted right
toward our house. That meant me.
In three days from now I'll be sailin
around among the clouds."
Mr. Gallup didn't dispute it. He was
reading that the Wiggins washer
would do the work of ten women at
the washboard, and he was giving the
inventor credit for being a bigger man
than I. T. Barn urn or Dan. Ilk.
"I'm glad it's come, SamueU" con
tinued Mrs. Gallup In more cheerful
tones. "You know I hev bin extectin
to die any mmit for tuej last -j
years, and it has kinder kept me up
tsot. You'll bo glad, too, because you
don't like the smell of camphor and
mustard plasters around. You ' may
feel a little lonesome for two or three
days after I'm gone, but with playin
checkers, goin to the debatin society
and lookin around for a second wife
you'll soon chirk up and git your appe
tite back. I ain't goin to ask you who
y6u shall take for your second wife,
but before I go I want to talk with
you about the bouse. Will yon talk
with me. Samuel 7
Mr. Gallup refused to commit him
self. That "Wiggins washer was being
sold for $10 when other and inferior
machines were foisted on the public at
$13, and he was saying to himself that
Wiggins ought to have the gratitude of
the nation. Mrs. Gallup shed seven or
eight tears, caught a sob between her
teeth and went on:
'In the first place, the oven door to
the stove needs a new hinge. It got
broke seven years ago, but I have got
along with it so as "to save expense.
Then the snout is broke off our two
quart pitcher, and the handle is off the
gallon Jug. If I was goin to stay right
along on earth, . I shouldn't tell you
that we ought to her a new set of tea
spoons or that there are "three holes In
the disbpan, but I'm goin fur, fur
away, and your second wife won't put
up with things as I hev. We are still
sleepin on the same feather bed moth
er gave me when we was married, and
the feathers ought to hev new tickln.
If I was to live on. 1 could make the
old sheets do fur a year more: but.
a it is. I ruess you'll hev to buy at
least two. You ought to hev some pil-
larsllps too. Down cellar you'll And
half a barrel of soft soap, two jars of
peach pickles and six gallons of appl
butter. I hope your second wife will
be as careful of 'em us I hev bin
Many a time I hev wanted a peach
pickle in the middle of the afternoon
bnt I wouldn't ge down arter it and be
a pig.' Did I tell you about the cider
vinegar, Samuel?" ;
Mr.. Gallup was holding bis breath
over the statement that the Wiggin
washer. washed a shirt for the govern
or of Arizona in 13 seconds, and of
course he didn't answer.
"The eider, vinegar ain't no good
Samuel. It didn't work, and you might
as well throw it away. Before you
marry ag'in you ought to fix fhe leak
iu the roof, git a new pump for the
well, whitewash the kitchen and buy
a new mop handle. First wives can
git along most any way and make one
mop last for 20 years, but second wives
begin to kick right away. I ain't tellin
you these things because I'm jealous,
Samuel, but because it's my duty as a
dyin wife. 1 don't want you to Lev to
go buntin the house all over after I'm
gone to find things. Remember, your
dyin wife, who hain't asked you to buy
her a hairpin for 17 years, tells yon
that you've got three shirts, four pairs
of socks, five collars and two handker
chiefs In the bureau, and hangin up In
the clothespress is two old suits and
one old hat. In the top drawer of the
bureau you'll find a piece of crape for
your bat. and in the bottom drawer is
some farewell verses I writ out a year
ago. I don't owe none of the nayburs
no tea or coffee or sugar, and none of
'em owes me anything. Now, that's all.
and if you want to kiss me and say
you're sorry I've got to go and hope I'll
watch over you. why. then I'm ready."
She looked full at Mr. Gallup for the
first time. His eyes were still glued to
that pamphlet. It was stated that the
Wiggins washer was so constructed
that it could be attached to a potato
slicer or an apple parer and no reader's
interest could help but grow.
Mrs. Gallup waited CO seconds for
an answer, and then as none came 6he
softly rose up and went out into the
kitchen and began to get things ready
for breakfast. She had beeu gone ten
minutes when Mr. Gallup smiled. He
didn't smile because he beard her sing
ing a verse of "The OKI Oaken Bucket
but because Mr. Wiggins finished his
pamphlet with the declaration that no
matter who wrote the poetry of
America, he proposed to wash the
shirts of the nation. M. Quad.
AN ENDURING CURSE.
A Famous glial. Family That Pr-
lahed by Fire and Water.
The attempt of the Midhurst district
council to convert the famous "Close
Walks" four old jew avenues at
Cowdray, la Sussex, into an arrange
ment of sewage tanks recalls a creepy
ttory of a fulfilled curse. At the disso-
utinn of the monasteries Sir Anthony
Browne obtained a grant of Battle Ah;
bey and the priory of Eastbourne, the
parish in which the ruins of Cowdray
are situated, and according to a pic
turesque tradition one of the monks
cursed him to his face and prophesied
that "by fire and water" his race
should perish out of the land. What
foundation there may be for the story
no man can say, but unquestionably
the Brownes did so perish.
George Samuel Browne, eighth Vis
count Montague and owner of Cow
dray, who was engaged to Miss Coutts,
sister to Lady Burdett-Coutts' mother,
was drowned in the falls of Laufen
burg In 1703. The messenger who
brought the news to England met one
going to Germany to inform Lord Mon
tague that Cowdray bad been burned!
He was succeeded by a distant rela
tive, a Roman priest, who was dis
pensed from his vows that he might
marry and continue the line, but he
died a few months afterward and the
tie became extinct. The estates went
to the drowned viscount's sister, whose
two sons were drowned together at
Bognor in 1813. It is a weird story.

As soon as a woman's nerves become excited by somo
feminine disorder, she loses control of her speech.
She has no patience with anybody or anything.
The ones she loves the best are the ones to whom she
talks the meanest.
Trifles light as air drive her almost frantic.
She is worse than crazy, because she knows what she
is doing and can't help it. ,
She doesn't have hysteria and doesn't have fainting
She is nervous, horribly nervous.
Does she get sympathy ? Oh, yes, she gets sympathy
for awhile, but she acts so outrageously that everybody
keeps out of her way as much as possible. After a while
they begin to think she's malicious and could do better if
she tried real hard.
She has turned her best friends against her.
- This woman is sick with about the most discouraging?
sickness women can have, and there is a person who
understands her case better than any ono else in the
world. That person is Mrs. Pinkham. The nervousness

physicians do not know how to grapple with these dis
eases of women. Out of the hundreds of thousands of
women Mrs. Pinkham has cured, not one in five hundred

the skill of their own physician, sometimes of several
