"I don't know,"'- says the bad
boy." about this thing of waiting
till you find out about a girl's re
ligion before you love her. Some
times you can't do it. If a girl
has not. got any sign out warning
a fellow what kind of. religion she
has got coneealed about Tier per
son how is ho going to know un
til iNtis eveis1ting too late. When
a young feller falls in love with a
girl, it is like falling down on
skates. Every thing seems to give
way at once. "It strikes him like
a sand bag, and there he is,. asphy
xiatC the first thing. He knows
that she is perfect, and he takes
her right into his heart and wraps
his heart around her, and pmts
rubber weather strips on all the
'eracks so sh can't get out, and
her religion is the iast thing he
thinks of. If her religion pulls
her t'other way, something's got
to bust, and sometimes its the
heart. I think there ought to be
a convention composed of dele
gates from all kindis of religion,
and let themi make a law that any
religion shall be legal tender any
wvhere like a gold dollar. Relig
ion ought to be pure gold, goad
anywhere. It- a man comes in
here to buy soap, ,and gives yen a
gold. dollar, coined in Rome. or
Jerusalemu, or California, or Chii
na, or Russia, or the Feejee Is
lands, he gets his soap., . But if
your son is in love with a Hebrew
girl, her religion says your son's
religion is counterfeit, and goesi to
hel' grave with your son's love in
her heart, and he. goes .to the bad
with her image in his heart, and
bothliare ruined for life-'is
they couldn't match their religion.
A Baptist girl falls in love with a
young fellow that is a, perfect
specimen of manhood, brave, no
ble; intelligent, tender to hier and
as kind -as a nyan ean be, and they
begin to plan -for the day when hw
can take her to a homine and be all
the world and a : small: see1dion of
Heaven to her: 'Your lover is one
of the noblen gen I eversaw, but
t is a nity "he is a Catholic.'
Thenthe trouble commences. le
believes his religion i's the grand
est in the world, and she beliewes
hers is no slouch, each tries to in
duce the other to adopt another
religion. but it is a failure and
they drift apart in all except the
buried love that can never be
quenched on earth, or in Heaven.
I tell you it is pretty tough to
have so' many different kinds of
religion that can't be made to jibe,
doii't you think so?"--Peck's Sun
AN 01D LADY'S INJUNCTIONS.
"Now, Jennie," said the old la
dy, as she kissed her granddaugh
ter good-by in an Eastern bound
Pullman, "be sure and take care
of yourself; you'll sleep at a hotel
to-night; air well your sheets and
undsrclothes; lock the door and
look under the bed; don't blow the
gas out, but screw it down; hang
your back hair where you can find
it easy; there's a roll of flannel in
the portmanty for your- pore feet,
which is always so dreadful cold';

no tooth brush; but for thel"ord's
