"Think-of it? vWhy, I think it is

up into the r interrogator's face, the
precious juvenile responded, in whin

things, and exhausted all his ingenu

never showed any ) interest m any

A rather bashful young man, after
a long and arduous courtship, found
himself one bright evening the be;
trothed of a pretty girl, the very pink
of ppdesJy.j'He was aloui to Make
his departure, and, after lingeriug
about the door for some time, he de
clared and protested to Miss Sallie
that he couldn't and wouldn't leave
until she had kissed him. Of course
Miss Sallie blushed beautifully red,
and avowed in return that she could
not and would not do that she never
had. done such a thing:, . and never
wouldi until, (he wag married. 'L The
altercation became exciting, nutil the
gentleman got huffed, and declared if
he couldn't kiss her he wouldn't have
hery and was '-marching off. She
watched him to the door, and seeing
he was in earnest, and that she should
lose him unless something was done,
she said, coaxingly, "Come back,
then ; I'll split the difference with you
You may squeeze my hand."

stepped up to him, and said :
" No smoking allowed."
