JOsh Billings on Infidelity.
Did you ever hear ov a man's
renouncing Christainity on hiz
d eth-)ed, and turn infidel ?
Gamlblers, ior free-thinkbrs,
havn't faith enuff in the profession
to teach it to their children.
No atheist, with all his boasted
bravery, haz ever yet kared to ad
vertize hiz unbeleaf on' hiz tumez
tun.
I never hav met a free-thinker
vet who didn't beleave a hundred
times more nonsense than he kan
find in the Bible ennywhere.
It iz alwuss safe to foller the re
ligius beleaf that owr mother taut
us-there never waz a mother yet
who taut hiur child to be an infidel.
A man may learn intidelity frum
books, and hiz assosiiates, but he
kant learn it frum hiz mother, nor
the works ov God that surrounded
himl.
If an infidel could only koinpre
hend that he kan prove more bi hiz
fIith than he kan hiz reason, Iiz
impudence wvould be much less of
fensive.
Unheleavets are allwas so reddV
and anxious to prove their beleat,
that I thought they mite he just a
leetle doubtful about it t'hemselfs.
The infidel, in hiz iImuJ)dence,
will ask you to prove that the flood
(lid occur, when the poor idiot
hi imself, can't tell what makes one
apple sweet., 111d one soir or tell
why a hen's egg iz vhite, and a
dtk's ecg'r bitt.
Wien I hear a noizy infidel pro
klaiming hiz tinbeleaf, I wonder if
he'll send for sim brother infitidel to
CuMt and see him die. I guess
not. le will be more likely to,

ingenious young man whose ap
pearance ini society was not atten
decd with the adlvantage which a
display of' the evidence of wealth
affords, and who had beeni cou rt
ing a New York girl for several
weeks without making an y visible
progress, hit upon nui ex pedient to
aid the consumnationl of his hopes.
Excusing himself at an i antsally
early hour one evenitng he rose to
take his departure.
'Going so soon?' adled his fair
enslaver' elatedI at the p'rospect of
his very early departurxe.
'Yves, I canl't stay any longer.

you know you love him.
'Oh, mamma!' exclaimed the
maiden, working up a blush, 'how
could you give me away so!, and
with girlish abandonment she fell
against the waistcoat of Mr. Sini
ley, who, as he caught her in his
arms, mentally observed:
'I guess I'll pass for a daisy.'

CONTKST OF WIT.-He who en
ters into a contest of wit with a
clergyman is likely to find his an
t agonist holding his own
One day Dr. Whately, Arch
bishop of Dublin, was walking with
'a young officer of artillery who
was allied to him in blood, when
the latter I)ropounded the follo x
ing riddle:
'What is the difference, between
a donke) and an archbishop?'
Whately gave it up, and receiv
ed the following rely., 'the one
carries his cross behind, and the
other before,' referrinr to the
marks of the cross on the back of
the (domestic ass and on the aplron
of an archbishop.
'Very good, indeed,' laughed
Whately. 'And now, can you tell
ine the difference between a (on
key aid' a captain of artillery !'
'No, indeedl, I eannot,' repliod
the officer.
'There is none Whatever,' rejoin
ed the archbishop.
GuEssS I HER AGE-In an Ele
varItel Railroad car a modest look
ing man was conversing pleasantly
with a well dressed Woman. who,
perha), might be ca'led a young
one, and the conversation grew so
Cial and familiar.
'You don't know how old( I am,'
saLid the lady.
-Ilaven't an idea,' the gentle
man sid.
'WTell, now, just guess,' returned1
his companion, when the door
(pened and the conductor jut his
hieadi in and1 shiou ted , 'forty-two.'
The conversation was t urned .-N.
Y.'Siun.
-ie was senti mental andl she
waUs senslible, and' both were on the
;verand~a gazing at the comet. He
sighed1 like a furnace and said1 :
'To mec this worldl is so desolate;
no one loves mec.' And she, like an
angel of mercy, repliedl in flute like
t ones ? 'You are mistfaken ; G od
l( e you -.he loves all his creat
mres.' lie went home before ten.
A w~oman's brain is of finer
qJulity than that of a man. Fine
ness of brain gives quickness of
perception, and we see that illuas
tratedl in this: A woman can tell
what another woman has got on at
a glance, whe~reas a mani might
study the matter a year' and be no
wiser.
