what dreams so fondly pondered o'er
Forever lost tho Uuo they wore:
How like a death knell, sad and slow.

Where Is tho faco wo loved to greet?

That blessed our lifepath day by day?

That thrilled our hearts "ono year ago?"
Ah! vacant la tho fircsido chair.
The smile that won no longer there:
From door and hall, from porch and laws,
The echo of that voico is gone.
And wo who linger only know
How cinch was lost "one year ago!"
Beside her grave tho marble white
Keeps silent guard by day and night;
Serene sho sleeps, nor heeds tho tread
Of footsteps near her lowly bed;
Her pulseless breast no more may know

But why repine? A few more years,
A few moro broken sighs and tears.
And we. enlisted with tho dead,
Shall follow whero her steps have led
To that far world rejoicing go

The Author of "Little Lord Fanntleroy"
Talks on an Interesting Subject.
"How to manage husbands?" said Mrs.
Frances Hodgson Burnett, t he authoress
of "Little Lord Fauntleroy," echoing the
qnestion. "You mean how to manage
them to make them happy? In my judg
ment, no man or woman, married or sin
gle, can !e made happy by others. Others
may afford us opportunities of beinj; hap
py, but no one can compel us to lie happy
whether we will or not. Our happiness or
nnhappiness must ever depend largely
upon ourselves, let our surroundings and
companions be what they may. You re
member Mark Tapley in JJickeus' novel of
'Martin t'huz.lewit?' Y'ou know his great
object in life was to lie 'jolly,' as he called
it, under adverse circumstances, and he
sought diligently to place himself in the
most depressing situation jtossible in order
to prove that a man may be contented and
happy in any condition if he only will.
'In married life, as m everything else in
this world, there is everything in beginning
right, and the very beginning is when the
young man and the young woman who are
to comprise the f Dture married couple re
ceive their first training in early child
hood. In most of the cases where marriage
has proved a failure a close investigation
will show that the husband or wife per
haps both have never received a proper
business or domestic training, and each has
relied on the other to make him or her
This notion in itself is fatal to happi
ness. I he man or woman who sits down
and waits to be made happy by their con
jugal partner, nnd becomes angry with the
said partner because he or she does not
manufacture the required amount of hap
piness, will in a short time declare mar
riage a failure, and perhaps seek relief iu
one of those divorces which may now be so
easily obtained without publicity.
A gin wnose natural uomestic tastes
have been carefully developed and who has
otherwise been properly trained will have
very little trouble in making a home what
it should be, and one of the greatest of all
points in managing a husband is to make
home the mo?t attractive of all places to
A good story is told of two brothcrs-in
law, one rich, the other poor, meeting after
a long separation.
' 'How do you spend your evenings?:
asked the poor man.
' Oh, at the club,' was the response.
" 'At the club:' exclaimed the poor man
in a tone of deep commiseration. 'That's
not like home, is it?
" 'Xo, indeed it is not, thank heaven! If
it were I should never go.'
'There are countless men like him who
seek the club as a relief from home because
their wives do not know how to manage
husbands by making home attractive."
WHERE TH FUN WAS.
A Case Where the Lauzh TTaa on tho
A negro went into a. dentist's office,
and after standing it bout remarked that
ns he had not slept for fiye nights he be
lieved that he would have a tooth pulled.
'All right, said tho dentist. "Sit

"Oh, it may hurt yon some."
"But I doan' want it ter hurt er tall.

"What sorter gas?'
"I neber yered o' dat sorter stuff, but
ef you'se got suthin' yere dat will make
er pusson laugh dat has got de toothache,
gimme, and gimme mighty quick."
The dentist administered the gas and
drew the tooth. The negro expressed
himself as greatly pleased, and after
thanking the dentist started to go out.
"Hold on a minute, said the dentist.
"Y'ou have forgotten something."
"I reckons not, sah," he replied, look
"Yes, you have forgotten to pay me."

She Was Suspicious.
A seedy old man with a bundle of dil
apidated umbrellas under his arm
called at a house on Cass avenue. The
lady of the house herself answered the
"Any umberellas, par'eols or canes to
mend?" he inquired.
"H-m," said the woman, eving him
suspiciously, "how do I know you'd ever
bring them back? There 3 no fun m let

with a stranger.
The old man rummaged in his pockets
and found the card of a prominent bank
official with a recommendation on the

the second time, "1 don't know him.
Like enough he's in with you. It ain't
safe to trust any one these times."
Then he told her where he lived, street
"H'm," she said slowly, "I don't own
an umbrella and never did, for I know
enough to come in when it rains, but I
hate to see folks imposed on and"
"So do I, mum," retorted the umbrella

Curious instruments devised for quench-

once numerous. Ono was the Drank a
sugar loaf shaped cap, made of iron hoop
ing, with a cross at the top, and a fiat piece,
also of iron, projecting inward for laying
upon the offender's tongue, so that it
should not wag, and her head should not
move. The brank was padlocked behind,
and the woman led through the streets by
an officer of t he town, proliably a beadle,
until she began to show "all external signs
imaginable of humiliation and amend
ment." Equally ellicaeious was the whirli
gig, a large circular cage turning upon a
pivot. It was put on the heads of trifling
offenders of all kinds, and not brawling
women alone, and was set awhirling with
great rapidity, "so that the delinquent soon
became extremely sick," and was very glad
to lie released and taken home. London
