NIne Teasa of War Retwees Husband and
A most curious and strange llustration of in.
herent love of war in the human bosom is given
in the history of a man and wife. now living in

for a married couple to enjoy it, live in the local.

but have no children, they eat their meals togeth

at which time the lady of the house enjoys her

place, one whiffing tobacco smoke up the chim
ney and the other chewing snuff and growling to
herself. Not a word passes. About 10 o'clock
they simultaneously rise and go to bed in silence.
The exceptional day to this beautiful. harmo
nious life, is the 25th of December, commonly
called, in this Chistian country, " Christmas Day,"
when there tccors a regular old-fashioned fight
between the silent twain. This is an annual bat

Nearly ten years ago, on Christmas Day, in the

ner. Betty turned the affair over with the tot of
her brogan, gazed intently for two minutes, and
then deliberately said:
" Faugh ! It'sa sknnk."
The tusband didn't like this expression of opin
!on on the part of his beloved, but being a mild
K man, and anxious to retain the long stpdtnog good
fee!ing between them, he contented himself with
L- a gentle reiteration of his frst remark. The lady
became firm also, and even Indulged in a sort of
"tbdned sneer at the ignorance of her husband.
He waxed cross.
" I tell you, tlet, it Is a ground hog, and I don't
want to be contradicted."
linBut the lady contradicted. " I tell you It is,"
and " I tell you it ain't." followed each other with
Increasing rapidity and virulence, until the storm
assumed the shape of blows. The man pinched,
and the woman scratched, until both became ex
hausted and had to quit from sheer weariness.
Next day when coolness and reflection super
sedled beat and passion, both silently regretted
the unfortunate difference of opinion, which left
the Lead of the house with half his beard and very
,ttle nair, and the lady two eyes of unusual dark
ne.s; bu t t hee * . aN both were 0to

Mnas day again came on, while enjoying a cap of
thick, black offlee and a greasy corn dodger, the
w:te mild.y ventured a remark to the efte t that
they had been very toolish a year ago to fall out
and pound each other about so miserable a thing
as a skunk.
" es.," said the repentant husbhand. ' it was
darr.ed wicked of us. and we oughtn't ha' done it,
but you forget, Bet, that was a ground-hog and
not a skunk."
o st cid not forget; she had reason to remember,
as'hrurh the black eyes were all gone thea, but
vl:e krew it was a skunk. The husband thought it a
theme for her to hold the same opinion still, par.
i tic olar'y when she knew it to be a ground-hog.

of the former Christmas Day was re-enacted to a
nicety, sad both went to bed exhausted. with
biacker eyes in her head and less hair on his.
They were repentant and silent next day, and
pI* rt the year without speaking; but when the
at Liversary arrived the same scene was gone
through with religious precision, and has been
go ne through with every Christmas since. The
Weople for uiles around have become aware of
l there annual idiosyncracies in the lonely and pe
culhar pair. and look forward with much interest a
, to the developments of the cominog Christmas. It
nmay be proper to remark, for the sake of perspi.
cuity, that the lady's eyes, from being originally
a litght gray have become a coaly black from the
i periodical dyong which her considerate husband
Sgives them; and his hair bhasentirely disapoeared,
owiog to the yearly operations of her long fingers.
SThere are various opinions entertained as to when
Sthe war will end. but the general belief is that the
lady will use np the old man in a few mpre fights.
