Her Mother Was Funny.
Eirdie Mc.'Icnnipin is ine of the belles
of Austin. Her intellect,, however. loes
not tower i: to sublime heights; but, to
use the coM liinsnage of truthfulness,
she is very much the same kind of a
young lady tlttit Gns De Smith is a young
man. Not Lug since he proposed matri
mony. He proposed in good faith, in a
solemn, impressive manner, upon which
Miss Birdie inaugurated a giggle, until
Gns was very much disnsted. and aris
ing from his knees his t.nger found vent
in words. He was mad too mad al
most to speak.
"Mi!8 McHennipin," he finally ejacu
lated, "with ine this is 110 laughing mat
ter. "Why should you see anything
ridiculous about it?''
"Yon must excuse ire, Mr. De Smith
really you must f r I am not laugh
ing at yon; really, now. I am not. Ma's
so funny, you know, f :eally she is just
too funny for any use. Yes, I was laugh
ing at ma."
"At your ma?"'
"Yes, yon see ma tuld me only this
morning, 'Birdie, you Jire so green that
some donkey will take you yet,' and
there you come''
But he was gone. He was in the' past
tense. It was he who oanged the loor
"I wonder," said the suddenly desert
ed Birdie, "1 wonder, now, really, if he
is offended at what ma said? But then
ma always was too r.wfnlly funny for
any kind of use." Tex is Siftings.
The present is not th-j age of romance,
and it is well for peopie of an unduly ro
mantic and adventurous spirit to re
member this. It isreli ted that a certain
practical young man who had resolved
to projxise marriage to a young woman
put the niattr in this way:
"Leonora, would y m leave country
and kindred and go to the ends of the
earth to be my wife?"
"Yes, William. I win. Id," said Leonora.
"Would you desert f.ttlier and mother,
and lie willing to be disowned and dis
carded by them for my sake?"
"For your sake 1 would. William!"
"Then," said the yung man, "1 fear
you are not the practical and sensible
girl whom 1 took yi.u for, and whom
only I could take for ;i wife. Farewell,
Leonora!" Youth's Companion.
