A LECTURE. ON WIDOWS.
POLICEMAN CONTROVERTS MR.
WELLER'S FAMOUS REMARK.
He Say That Manv
Married VTomes Tlie Had Lost Their
Husbands and Have Lived Happily A
Question That KufHed the Sergeant.
It was five minutes past I on Sunday
morning in the Thirtieth street station
house. Captain Keilly was fast asleep in
his room restoring in sweet slumber tho
wear and tear of the Arion festival, ami
Sergeant Oliver Tims, the scholar, leaned
I I. : i : i ,, . .. . .
uw;. iu uis caair oeninit tue desk, put the
tips of his fingers together, and cast hie
eyes up to the ceiling after the manner of
the stained glass saints in church windows,
ano oegan to ponder.
I he interesting t bins' about the situa
tion was that the hour of 1:05a. m. on Sun
day is the time that the police of Captain
Ileilly's command all concede is properly
devoted to poudering by all true philoso-
pners, ana so, oy common consent, nobody
interferes with Sergeant Tims when he
leans back in his chair at this particular
hour every Sunday and gives himself up
When the sergeant had looked at the
ceiling for ten minutes a young man with
an elongated brown overcoat and an En
glish setter trotting at his heels opened the
door of the station and cave the police
philosopher a wished for opportunity to
make public 'the substance of his peaceful
and enlightened reflections. The ruddy
cheeked sergeant fairly beamed with smiles,
anil he fired off the thoughts instantly in
the following surprising fashion:
The pages of history glow with eulogies
of widows my loy. Have you ever re
flected uppn t he instructive fact that some
of the most famous men of the world have
married willows? There was King Charles
XII and Frederick the Great and Admiral
Nelson, and t he First Napoleon and George
Washington and Lord Beaconsfield aud
ever so many more noted for their genius
and ror tboi. 3 attributes that fit meu to be
leaders of their fellow men."
The sergeant Stopped to take breath, and
the setter sat on her haunches and gazed
at him with a sort of fascination and tried
to get through the railing to shake hands
wit h him.
"Then you don't agree with the late Mr.
Weller?" ventured the young man with
the elongated brown overcoat.
" hat! the man who said, 'Samivel. be-
vare of the vidders!' " exclaimed the ser
geant, with disapprobation. "No, my boy,
I do not agree with Mr. Weller. lie was
wrong, all wrong."
"To what do you attribute the choice of
the gieat men you have named?" asked
the young man. "There were plenty of
maidens around in those days as now."
"I ascribed the selection of widows by
tbese bruliant men to their superior intel
ligence. They were men of rare good judg
ment, and they reasoned that the women
whom they chose understood men and
were already trained in the management
of homes. They were men, you see, who
did not care to run any risks of the matri
monial lottery, which I may be permitted
to describe simply as marriage with women
who have never been married before.
A HARD QUESTION SOLVED.
"The widows whom Nelson and Napo
leon and Washington and the other great
men married had already earned an con
orable fame as excellent wives, and there
could therefore be no chance of disappoint
ment in wedding them. And you will ob
serve, if you examine the pages of history,
that they made most admirable wives to
their second husbands, just as they were
devoted and useful to their first. As the
pursuit of happiness is one of the chief
ends of man, according to the Declaration
of Independence and common sense, and as
a well considered marriage is a sure road
to happiness, therefore it follows, don't
you see, my boy, that to marry a widow
who has proved her ability to make a good
wife is the best policy to pursue in the
pursuit of happiness and will quickest
yield the result sought for."
The police orator rubbed his bands to
gether, and the setter gave a delightful
bark. "Very good, and very elegantly
put," said the young man in the elongated
overcoat. "But," and he leaned over the
railing, and his voice grew solemn, "if all
the men who believe in marriage as an in
stitution are to marry widows, Mr. Tims,
what is to become of the maidens? You
surelv wouldn't deprive them of a show."
The studious sergeant sat bolt upright
with a start. He scratched his head aud
looked up at the ceiling. He had struck a
suae in the suggestion of the young man
with the setter.
"True, very true," he muttered. "Let
me see, now. What could we do with the
maidens?" Then his face brightened again.
"I have it. Let them marry and become
widows, of course, and then they will be in
the field all right." He leaned back in the
chair once more with that air of satisfac
tion that marks the man who has tri
umpbed over an obstacle.
A FEW QUESTION.
Just then the station door opened and
two weeping women came in and walked
np to the railing. They were btsttt dressed
"Well, ladies, what's the matter? What
can I do for you?" the sergeant asked in
a kindly tone. A very curious look came
into his face when one of the women, be
tween her sobs, told her story. Boiled
down to facts it was this:
! "A year ago I married a man who had
bwt. his wife the vear before. I was a wid
ow. He has turned out to lie a very wick
ed man. Ifr lieata me and has just driven
m,. m,t. nf the house, and I want him ar
The sergeant directed the woman to go
to Jefferson market and get a warrant for
the arrest of the perfidious widower, and
wheeled around with his back to the rail
ine and stared hard at the wall.
"Srcreant-" ventured the young man
with the overcoat, after a long and painful
6ilence, "this incident reminds me that
you haven't told what rule is to be applied
by women who think of taking husbands.
Is the Weller injunction to be changed to
Samivel, bevare of the viddervers,'
"Yonnir man." exclaimed the sergeant
sternly, wheeling around and cutting the

prevalent in the east that eclipses of the
