Tattlers are confined to no particular
class of society. They belong to all
classes, and operate in them all. We
find them among the "upper ten" and
the "lower million," in the church ~ and
out of it. They are people who have
no higher ambition than to be well in

An exchange says that "one-third of
the folks in the country think they can
beat a lawyer in expounding the law.
One-half think they can beat the doc

Wilt thou take her for thy "pard",
for better or for worse; to have, to

with the dlishes? Wilt thou give her all
the ''stuff" her little purse wvill p~ack,
buy her a monkey boa and mnuff, a lit
