I 15 IENTB.
It is related of Randolph that, during a horseback ride through the State of Virginia, he was annoyed by the impertinent questions of the leeper of a wayside inn at which he put up. He chaffed during the vening at the annoyance, but with the aid of philosophy and an occa sional hot slang he avoided making any disturbance before he went to bed. In the morning the landlord again plied his questions, which Randolph submitted to until he had paid his bill. "Which way do you go, sir ?" said the inquisitive tormentor, as the statesman of Roanoke was mounting his horse to depart. "Do I owe you anything ?" he re plied. "Have I not paid my bills ?" "Yes," answered the landlord promptly. "Then," said Randolph, "it's none of your d-d business which way I go." Saying which, he put spurs to his horse-as usual with horsemen, I believe-and galloped away. Before going many yards he came to the forks of two roads-one road led to the right, the other to the left. Being at a lose to know which one to take, he halooed back to the landlord, who was still standing at the' door, inquiring which road to take. "Mr. Randolph," yelled the land lord in reply, "you don't owe me a cent-take whichever road you d-d please !" The Art of Not learing. The art of not hearing is fully as important to domestic happiness as a cultivated ear, for which so much time and money is expended. There are so many things which is painful to hear, many of which, if heard, will disturb the temper and detract from contentment and happiness, that every one should be educated to take in or shut out sounds at will. If a man falls into a violent passion and calls me all manner of names, the first word shuts my ears, and I hear no more. If in my quiet voyage of life I am caught in one of those- domestic whirlwinds of scolding, I shut my ears, as a sailor would furl his sail, and, making all tight, scud before the gale. If a hot and restless man begins to inflame my feelings, I consider what mischief these sparks might do in the magazine below where my temper is kept, and in stantly close the door. Does a gad ding, mischief-making fellow begin to inform, me what people are say ing about me, down drops the port cullis of my ear, and he cannot get in any farther. Some people feel very anxious to hear everything that will vex or annoy them, they set about searching and finding it out. If all the petty things said of one by the heedless or illnatured idlers were to be brought home to him, he would become a mere walk ing pin-cushion, stuck full of sharp ,remarks. I should as soon thank a man for emptying on my head a bushel of nettles, or setting loose a swarm of mosquitoes in my cham ber, or raising a pungent dust in my house generally, as to bring upon me all the tattle of spiteful people. If you would be happy when among good men, open your ears; when among bad, shut them. It is Dot worth while to hear what your tervants say when they have slammed the door; what a beggar says whose petition you have re jected; what your neighbors say about your children; what your rivals say about your business or dress. I have noticed that a well bread woman never hears an imper tinent remark. A kind of discreet deafness saves one from many in sulte, from much blame, from not a little apparent connivance in dis honorable conversations. It was a favorite saying oC Dr. Franklin'. father in the old candle shop: "Seest thou a man diligent in business, he shall stand before kings." No man ever lived more diligent in business than Benjamin Franklin, and no man ever stood with more of the dignity of upright manhood before kings. Mark Twain's lecture was steno graphed by a Pittsburg reporter and published. Mark took his little shot-gun and called on the reporter. The reporter said that he ha been instructed to take it. "Yes," said Mark, "and if my pocketbook had been on the table you would have been instrueted to take that too, I suppose." Fin a" Famey. -Some one called Richard Steele the "vilest of mankind."

"Sure, and isn't it a flavor, whether it's a limon or pitaty ?" -"I have come for my umbrella," said the lender of one of these articles, one rainy day to his friend. "Can help that," exclaimed the borrower. "Don't you see that I am going out with it ?" "Well-yes,-replied .the lender astonished at such outrageous im pudence ; "yes, but-but-but what am Ito do ?" "Do ?" replied the other, as he threw up the top, and walked off ; "do as I did-borrow one." -A dwarf s'id to a giant, "we have equal rights ?"

"Well, it was occasioned by some body at the end of the rope." -A wife complained to her Hus band that he sat up late at night. "That is the last thing I do, my dear," was the reply." -A lady of not very amiable temperament, rudely discharged her servant girL "I will not only send you away." said she, "but will not even allow you to refer to me for a character."
