ARP ON HAPPINESS.
When Not Worrying About the Little Arp,
- He Is About the Country.
Oh, my country. I thought that
when me and my wife or my wife and
I had raised our ten children and
turned them loose we would have a
rest and our remaining days would
all be calm and serene. But these
grandchildren keep coming on and
every new one that comes has
to have a silver cup or a silver spoon or
something by way of remembrance. It
used to be cups, but it has got down to
spoons now and I reckon will get down
to safety pins after while. My wife is
a maternal ancestor and is proud of
her grandchildren and these little me
mentos have go, to come, money or no
money. And there are the birthdays
that keep on multiplying and she
knows every one and wants something
for them. "Just a little something,"
she whispers as she follows me to the
door. It is these little sowethings that
keep me on a strain, but I am going to
keep on that time as long as I can. She
has been telling me for a month that I
I ought to have a new suit of clothes,
especially as there was a wedding to
come off in the family very soon and I
would have to escort the bride adown
the long drawn aisle in the presence of
a multitude. And so I tried the cloth
ing stores in Atlanta for a suit with
the tar; off, but I didn't find it. That
kind nasent come yet, and so I shall
brush up my old ones for the occasion.,
Nobody is going to look at me nohow
for there are to t>e ten beautiful brides
maids and as many groomsmen and a
church full of witnesses and the wed
ding march is to be played, and I
could just drop out of it and never be
missed. But I did buy my wife a silk
wedding dress and she is as proud as
she was at sweet sjxteen, when she
stood up by me with her Augusta
clothes on. She dideut have but one
bridesmaid, either, and there wasent
much fuss made over it. There were
no presents at all, but a few days after
we went to housekeeping seven likely
darkies .came tramping- up to the
house and sat down on the front steps
uvtil I came from the stere. My pret
tylbutwife was sitting at the window
pretending to sew. She had a mis
chievous smile on her face as I stopped
in front of the smiling darkies. "What
are you all doing here," said I. "What
lave you come after, Tip-you and
Mary and all?" And Tip said: "Old
master sont us up here to Miss Octavy
and she tole us to sot down here tweil
you come. Old master tole us we all
b'long to you and Miss Octavy now."
Well, I never felt less helpless in my
life. What to do with them I didn't
know. I had no plantation and no
negro houses and it never occurred to
me that I could hire them out. So
after consultation me and my wife or
my wife and I sent them all back ex
cept Tip and Mary and begged the old
gentleman to keep them until later.
He enjoyed the joke and said be only
wanted to make a delivery of them, for
they had long declared that when Miss
Octavy got married they were "gwine
No, we didn't have our share of wed
ding. My wife cost me just $11.50-$10
to old brother Patterson, the preacher,
and a doliar and a half for the license.
Cheap, I teil you. A good wife is the
cheapest thing in the world, for she
has done been raised and clothed and
schooled when you get he'r. Old Jacob
had to work fourteen years for- the girl
he loved, bit he got some of that back
by cheating old man Labon in the
cattle trade. But nowadays a wedding
costs as much as a funeral--costs old
folks I mean. From the way things
* are going on at my'house it looks like
hole family are to be married,
* even'dawn to the little granddaughters,
who are to be dressed up as cherubs
* ~ and mingle with' the angels. It takes
dry goods and lace amazing. And the
kinsfolks are coming and some dear
friend's, and all have to come in bridal
array, and the cake baking business has
begun and old Aunt Ann is as much
excited as if she was to be married, too,
and declares that "nobody's cake ain't
gwine ter beat" her cake. The house
has been swept and garnished-not a
cobweb or a speck in it. The rooms in
%the cabin have been cleaned and car
%peted,A' d for a while one of them-was
~jidto me, but I am ruled out now
and will have to hang up somewhere
or sleep on the hay in the barn. It is a
mighty big thing, I tell you, for our
baby girl is going to step off and leave
us-going off~ after a young man who is
no kin to her and never did anything
-for her but give her a ring and a book
and somne French candy now and then.
But it is all right and according to na
ture and we can die more happily if
the girls are happily married beTore we

live four years longer. We will have a
golden wedding-no silver in ours

each of our friends will do, fcr we are
goldolaters now in anticipation. We
don't want to break nobody. These

erous donors are mighty nice and highly
appreciated by the happy donees, but
they give the old folks fits-I mean the

If an old man has a popular son or
daughter who has to play bridesmaid

four times a year its as aggravating as
town taxes. I know a handsome bache

- - that broke him. He wanted to marry
to get out of the business, but couldent
make up his mind, and all his set of
girls married while he was making up
-mind and he had to give every one
oeautiful present. At last he died and
not one of those girls went to his funeral.
But it is the fashion nowadays to make
wedding presents, and it is all right if
they come willingly.and don't strain the
old man's pocket. It is a sort of tax on
income that has to be endured. In our
young days we dident get presents, but
we had as fine a wedding supper as can
be had now, and next day we had an
infair, that was as fine as the supper.
The infair was a swell dinner at the
house of the groom's father, and both
families and all their kindred were
there. That ended the show.
There was no Lo,ndoci or Paris or New
York or Saratoga in it, but the young
couple went to work. Me and my wife
--that is to say my wife and I-did go
to TalI'4lah Falls about the clo-e of the
honeymoon. The honeymoon is the
first month after marriage, and it closes
about the time the young raan quits
calling his wife honey. 'We went in an
old-fashioned carriage thbat swung high
and had folding steps in the casing of
each door and had a high dickey seat
for the driver and a place bebind for a
little nig to stand on. Old Virgil was
carriage driver and was proud of his
vocation. He was then over fifty, and
is living yet, as gray as a rat and blind
as a bat. Yes, we went to Tallulah
when it was a howling wilderness. No
body lived there but a man by the name
of Beall, who was in the war with
Mexico and had named his two boys
Churubusco and Monterey and his lit
tle girl Buena Vista. Tallulah was thben
awfully magnetic. I reckon it is yet. I
held on to my pretty young wife des
perately when she ventured a look over
- the awful precipice.

down t bere in horror and despair-and
as they descended by the winding and
dangerous way to find her mangled re

thornbush that grew from out the
rocks_ a hundred feet down. She was
saved by the strength of a hoopskirt
that she bought at Dougherty's store,
on Peachtree street, in Atlanta, and it
cost only $1.75, and he had plenty
more of the same sort left. That car
riage ride to the falls and from there
to Toccoa and back home was a de
lightful episode, and I continued to call
my bride honey and sugar and darling.

The wedding, the marriage, the nup
tials is the biggest thing in a man's
life, especially a woman's. It is bigger
than being born or dying. We look
back and wonder at the eagerness with
which we took the risk, the peril of
happiness or misery. The very word
wedding means a bet, a wager, a
chance. Nuptials means a veil, a
covering, as though a man couldent see
what kind of a wife he was getting, and
conjugal means a yoke, and the law
tells of the chains of matrimony.
Nevertheles, the young folks make
the leap as though they would fall on a
bed of roses and all their friends, old
and young, look on with smiles and
congratulations. There is no weeping
or wailing.. That comes later, if it comes
at all. But marriage is nature, and
nature is the safest guide of all. I
would marry every time. I would
rather have an uncongenial wife whose
children loved me than no wife at all.
It is the woman who takes the greater
iisk and she had better remain single
than be bound to a bad man who will
entail misery upon herself, and her
children, too. BILL ARr.
Who Made the First Cup of Coffee?
In t' 3 Bibliotheque Nathionale there
is a manuser'-t (near the end of the six
tenth century), written by an Arab, Abdel,
cader, who declares that coffee was drunk
for the first time in Arabia in the middle
of the fifteenth century. Others think
that certain remarks in Persian writings
imply that coffee was used in Persia as
early as the ninth centuiy; but most
authors dispute these texts. It is com
monly supposed that the use of coffee in
its earliest home, Abyssinia, and in its
second home, Arabia, is only five or six
A legend says that the Angel Gabriel
once, when Mohammed was ill, brought
him a cup of coffes. - Another legend says
that a Mohamtanian monk discovered
that his goat becaine very lively and full
of fun after they .had eaten the fruit of
the coffee-tree. This obs6rvation caused
him to make the first cup of coffee. His
dervishes enjoyed. the coffee, and ever
afterwards drank it at night, to produce
wakefulcess, when they kept vigils. Cau
tious historians laugh at these traditions
and prefer to stand by Abdelcader's man
uscript. This writer mentions an Arab,
Gemaleddin, a judge in Aden, who while
traveling to Persia, or, as the historiens
correct the manuscript, to Abyssinia, saw
people use coffee as medicine. He used
it and was cured of a sickness. Later,
becoming a monk, be taught his brethern
-the use of coffee. It was, then, in Aden
that coffee-drinking originated. The
Fakeers even made coffee-drinking com
pulsory upon their neophytes. Public
coffee-houses originated in Aden, and
very early in history. We do not find any
opposition to the use of coffee until the
middle of the sixteenth century, when
the Egyptian Sultan sent a new governor,
Chair Bey, to Mecca. This governor
knew nothing about coffee, and was
greatly enraged when he saw the der
vishes, in the mosque, drink coffee. He
believed that which they did was contrary
tothe teaching of the Koran, and that
they becamae intoxicated. He consulted
two Persian physicians. who were op
posed to coffee. They declared it was a
substitute for wine, which is prohibited
by the Koran, and hence coffee-drinking
was a violation of Mohammed's law. To
prove that coffee drinking made persons
neglect regligious dut-ies, they pointed to
the fact that while coffee-houses were
multiplying the mosque were empty
Chair Bey called a council of pnysicians,
priests, and lawyers, and, on their advice,
forbacTe absolutely the use of coffee. The
police gathered all coffee that could be
found, and burned it in the market-place.
