ABOUT CHEERFUL MEN.
YOUR HAEITUALLY CHEERFUL INDI
VIDUAL IS PROBABLY A FRAUD.
ST. Quad Shows Up the Other Side of a
Familiar Picture A Man May Smile
and Ho n Villain Still Ought To lie
Kicked for His MeanneHt..
If cheerful mea svero Lolling for 10 cents
apieco, and I bid $1,000 to throw away, I
wouldn't buy one of them. I used to have
a positive roverenu) for a smiling, grin
ning, bland-oiced man. Many a time I've
met Smith or Green or White on my way
down town, and it would jump my soul a
foot high to hear him call out:
"Wed, my boy, beautiful inornintr, eh?
Isn't everything just lovely? Why, Iseam
to be floating in mid air! Why, sir, I
wouldn't trade this earth for all the heavens
ever preached about by the ministers. Havo
a cigar 2fof Then have a drink o
Dear me! what can I do to brighten you up
and make you feel like an angel on roller
skates.'" And I'd stand off and look at him and
wonder if the land Leyond the i-kies did
really contain a happier soul. Ah! tho old
hypocrite! 1 got to know in after years that
his children wereafiaid of him, his wife
trembled as ho he entered the door, and that
it was his daily habit to growl out as. he left
' Wood! I bouht $2 worth last week. If
that's gone we'll go without until Saturday.
You are the most extravagant woman in
Detroit I behevo you burn it up to spito
me. boap? Didn't I got a bar last Satur
day? If you let the children play horso
with tho soap you must take tho conse
quence:.. Godoun on the ferry.' I'd like
to see myself lugging threo or four young
uns and a limping wife arounl town!"
Your habitually cheerful man is an old
fraud and a liar. Ho is woil dressed, while
his children are tho rag-bags of tho neigh
borhood, lie has a dollar lor cigars when
his wife wears a bonnet six years old. Ho ,
passes for a whole-bouled fellow with the
public, but is a lauit-linder at honiu. You'll
sue him taking tho cool breoxs on the river.
Ahile his family aro weltering in a stutly
house on some back street
I'LEASAXT MAX ABOUT THE HOUSE.
I want to see a man grin when thero'3
anything to grin at, but when Green gets
up in tho morning and declaros ho hasn't
had a meal fit to eat for tho last throe
mouths, and that he can't eo why his wife's
always gioaniug around and his chiluren al
ways whining, ho has no business to stop
the iirst man ho meets, with a smile clear
back to his ears, and shout out:
"Why, old fel, how solemn you look!
Brace up, man life is worth tho living ten
1 used to reverence Grcjn. Ho lad a
grip ot tho baud like a carpenter's vise hy
bad a voice as bland as Juno he'd make a
consumptive believe that nothing mora than
soio heel was the matter. I used to lie in
ambush lor him just to hear his hearty
v oico and see his serene countenance, and
I'd go ubout my day's work wondering what
sort of a guardian angel he had. I found
out one day when a policeman had to go in
and stop him from beating his vvifo.
When you lind a man who can grin over
the servant girl's jumping out at an hour's
notice, with wife Hat in bed and the chil
dren having a scarlet fever look around tho
eyes, don t you go off on a fishing trip with
him. When a man can soar among tho
angels with bill collectors ringing his door
bell last week's grocery bill unpaid the
children wauling shoes tho lent running
behind and his wifo coughing all night long,
he's an infernal old fraud and ought to be
kicked. When a chip who has frozen the
children, lawed the cook and blasted his
wife as a bore of morning tonic before leav
ing the houso meets you about a block
from the gate and is troubled becauso you
haven't got your angel's harp on your
shoulder, keep your hand on any stray
half dollar you happen to havo about you.
He's mean enough to steal chicken-broth
from a boy w ith a broken back. M. Quad

A htory of tho Empress Eugenie.
The following is tho latest story that is
told about tho Emptes? Eugonie, who has
c cr buen a striking iiguro since tho day she
charmed Napoleon III with tho wreath of
violets which she wore in her golden hair.
" 'Twas morning then, but now the night
has come." A few days ago, says tho
chronicler, a visitor to the Marcus church
ut Venice, whore tho ox-empress is now stay
ing, obsoivod a lady, drebsod in doepest
mourning, kneeling in long, silent prayer
before one of tho side altars. When at last
6ue roMj she looked about her iu search of
something which sho missod, and then
walked s owly away, and supporting herself
by the wall, toward tho entrance. Tho
stranger jwhU'ly ollered his arm, which was
gratofullj' accepted, the lady meanwhile ex
plaining that one of tho beggars must havo
takon her silver-headed walking stick
away, without which sho was "very help
less." Uutsido the church two liveried foot
men were waning; tho strangor on retiring
olFered his addrc&s card (alas, for cruel
Nemesis, ho was a German fiom Uerlin!),
glancing at which tho lady was seen to shud
der slightly and then return tho civility by
whispering. "Empress .Eugouio, and
homeless." Pall Mall Budget
An Arrangement for Carringe Horses.
By means of a recently devisod arrange
ment, which can bo worked from tho coach

valuable, though somewhat of that cnic
desired by owners of eloant turnouts must
be sacrificed to its presence. Boston Herald.
