Durinctbe davs of Il.-try Wtrd Beeeher's
courtship, it is related by his wife that he
once dropped into poetry and wrote a few
liuc-sof verse teeming with affection for
bis sweetheart. But tbe verses were
always kept sacred by Mrs. Beecher, as
they are nt the present day, and nothing
can win them from her.
One day Mr. and Mrs. Beecher were in
the office of Koliert Bonner, who was then
conducting the New York Ledger.
"Why don't you write a poem, Beecher?"
said the acute publisher. "I will Kive you
more for such a poem t han 1 have for 'Nor
"He did once," admitted Mrs. Beecher,
and at once Mr. Bonner's eyes sparkled.
"Kecite it for uie, wou't you, Mrs. Beech
er?" he asked.
But the eyes of the preat preacher were
riveted n his wife, and s-'ne knew thai
"Come,'' said the persistent publisher,
"I'll ive S."),KM if you will recite that,

"Why, it ran'" lean the preacher's

"Say," he observed to an acquaintance
next door, "you've heard that 'economy js
wealth' that 'a penny saved is a penny
earned' and a whole lot of other rubbish,
"Well, yes," ami in t he admission there
was an inflect iou of the voice asking what
"Von have, bey? Well, it's all lies
every bit lies. Economy means bankruptcy
if you areu't careful."
"What's the matter now?"
"Matter?" and there was a whole vol
ume of minion solid in the exclamation.
"Why, just now. ta save a nickel, I tried
to black my boots. At the first brush my
eyeglasses dropped off and broke, on the
floor. The next rip I made I broke a sus
pender, and now I notice that in stooping
over I've busted three fifteen cent cigars
