A WEDDING NIGHT INCIDENT. HOW TOM BKNNETT FIXED JOE TIIOMTSON. IT WASN'T hardly the fair thing that the boys did to Joe Thompson the night he was married, but the temptation was irresistible. They could not have helped it. to have saved their lives. I'll tell you how it was. Joe was about the most fancy-dressed chap in town over nice and particular a perfect Miss Nancy in manner, al ways putting on airs, and more dainty and modest than a girl. Well, when his wedding night came he was dressed, trunk empty, and his pants, especially fit tin ir him as if they had been moulds, and his legs candles, ami run into them. Tight was no mime for them. 'J heir set was im mense, and he was prouder than half u dozen peacocks. " Aren't they nice, boys?" be asked of tho two who were to be groomsmen, and see that he threw bimsell'away in the most approved fa.-hion. ( " Stunning! Gorgeous!" replied Tom I'ennclt. "Never saw anything equal to them. IJitt I say, doe aren't they just the least bit tight? It strikes me that you will have sumo difficulty in bcndinir won't you V " Pshaw no ! They tiro as easy as nn old glove see !'' To prove the matter he bent down so as to touch his patent leathers, when crack ! crack ! followed like tho twin report of ;i revolver. ''J Imnder !" exclaimed Joe, us he clas ped his behind and found a rent in the cassimers from stem to stern. Thun der ! the pants have burst and what shall I do V should think they had, answered Tom, getting purple in the face as he en deavored to control 'his laughter, "but (hero is no time to get another pair. It only wants half an hour to the stand up time, and we have a mile to go. Car riage waiting too." " What shall I do? what shall I do r l 11 fell you what Joe. if mine wnnld fit you should h ll, ami welcome. I see no way but they are a mile to b but to have them mended " M ho can I get to do it, Tom V ' Well. I am something of a tailor, and can f:. them so that they won't show. Hold on a minute and I'll-get a needle and thread." " Can you? May heaven bless you !" " Oil wiih your coat," commanded Tom as he came back. " Now lay yourself over on the bed and 1'li fix yuu in a short order. The command was obeyed the pants mended tho coat tails carefully pinned over. So as to conceal the distress for rent," and all went merry as a luarriatro bell. until Tom followed his blushing bride to the natal couch. There was only a dim light in the room but it enabled Joe, as he glanced bashful ly around to sec tho sweetest' face in the world, the rosy cheeks and ripe lips the lovely and loving blue eyes and golden curls just peeping out from the snowy sheets, and he extinguished it altogeth er, and hastened to disrobe himself. OIF came lhe coat, vest, fancy necktie and col lar, boots and seeks in a hurry; but some how the pants stuck. The more he tried the more they wouldn't come, and he tugged vainly for half and hour. MM It. , iiiuntier: slioutod Joe. ' What is the matter, dear?" came in the softest of accents from the bed, where somebody was wondering what it was that annoyed him. It was a moment of desperation. Joe was entirely overcome by tho situation, and forgetting his bashfuluess, blurted out : " Molly, that cursed Tom Bennett has sewed my pants, drawers, shirt and un dershirt all together." " It is too bad. Wait a moment dear." A little stockingless foot first peeped out, then a ruflled night dress, the lamp was lighted, and a pair of scissors found and Joe released, mentally vowing that if ho got tho opportunity "ho would pay his friend Tom back with interest for tho joke ho hud played on him. Husband" If I were td lose you I would never bo such a fool us to marry again." Wife " If I wero to loso you, I would marry again directly." Husband " Then my death would be regretted by at least one person." Wife "l)y whom?" Husband, "My successor." A Dog Team. A' TRAVELKIt in Alaska gives his cxpeneuce with a dog team as fol- loWS ! " My team comprised three dogs. The leader was a fine black dog named lkkee who had a magnificent bushy tail, which was always erect and curly. The next one was black and white, and called Sawashka, a hard worker and of aitnable disposition. Next the sled was old Kaniuk, my favorite, and the ugliest dog in the brigade. 11 is tail poorly furnished ed with hair, was usually between his legs; his ears were short, and scored with the marks of many battles. His face was stolid, and exhibited emotion only when feeding time came, or when some other dog ventured too nearer lagged behind. Ilis body was large, and bis legs were like pillars his color was white, with dirty spots. Altogether ho looked a good deal like a lean pig. But how hewould pull. A description can give but a faint idea of dog driving. It is an art itself. The nature ol' dogs is cross grained, and they frequently do the wrong thing with ap parently the best intentions. Kaeh has a peculiar look and character. Some are irrcekiimably lazy, others enjoy hard work unless pushed too far; some are greedy and snappish, others good humor ed and decorous. All are very practical showing aii'eclion only for the man that feeds them. Hence the vovageur should always feed his own team himself. They dislike the whip, not only when in use, but in abstract. They will always de.-troy one if (hey can get at it. The whip is made wilh a short handle, a very lonu' lash braided of leather or seal.-kin, and usually leaded with sheet leader bullets in the core. As we walk behind the sled, which or dinarily travels about four miles an hour we have an excellent opportunity of studying dogs One habit appears to be ingrained in their nature." It exhibits itself at street corners in cities, and at every bush, stump, or lump of ice that 'they pass on tho road. When traveling rapidly,some dog would slop twenty times an hour to examine any bush or twig which attracts his attention. If a leader it checks the whole team if not, he usually tangles himself in the harne.-s and jumps frantically to release himself as bo hears the well known crack of the whip about his ears. If a. log comes in the way, aud the driver is not ready with his help in urging the sled over it, down they drop on their tails and looking about with a plea-ed expression, or uttering a senti mental howl. With a crack of lhe whip, and a shout to Kamuk to stir himself, their reveries are broken, and we go on. Going down hill, the whip aud lungs are again called into requisition, to keep the dogs, out of the way of the descending sled. It io said that no man can drive dogs without swearing. I think it is in a measure true. At all events ho must have a ready store of energetic expletives to keep them on the (juioivr. In ilussiau American we always used the indigenous epithets, which, as we did not understand tiiem, were hardly sinful. If there is a tree near the trail the dogs invariably try to' pass it on dill'erent sides, until cheeked by their harness ; they e instantly exhibit such idiosyncracies, and it was lucky for Job that ho was not set to dog driving, if be had been, I fear his po.," tliumous reputation would have suu'ered. i'dr-rk Twain ns on Agricultural Editor; FjpiIK regular editor of an Agricultural J paper being in need of a holiday, Mark was secured to take his place tem porarily. 'I ho first edition of tho paper under his charge had the following arti cles : Turnips should never bo pulled it injures them. It is much better to send up a boy and let him shako'the tree. " The guano is a fiuo bjrd', but great euro is necessary in rearing it. It should not be imported earlier than June nor la ter than September. In tho winter it should bo kept in a warm place, where it can hatch out its young. " It is evident that we aro to have a backward season for grain. Therefore, it will be well for the farmer to bo setting out his corn-stalks and planting his buck wheat cukes in July instead of August. ' Concerning the Pumpkin. This ber ry is u favorite with the natives of lhe interior of New England, who prefer it to the gooseberry for tho making of fruit cake, and who likewise give it tho pref erence over tho raspberry for feeding cows, as being more filling and fully as satisfying. Tho pumpkin is tho only es culent of tho or.nigo family that will thrive iu the North, except the gourd and one or two varieties of the squash. But the' custom of planting it in the front yard with the shrubbery is fast going out of vogue, for it is now generally conceded that tho pumpkin, as a shade tree is a failure." The next morning the regular editor entered the office looking Bud and deject ed, and said to Mark : " My friend, as I am nn honest man, the street out here is full of people, and others are roosting on the fences, waiting to get a glimpse of you, because they think you are ciazy. And well they might, after reading your editorials. They are a disgrace to journalism. Why, what put it into your head that you could edit a paper of this nature? You do not seem to know the first rudiments of agricul ture. You speak of a furrow and a har row as being the same thing; you talk of the moulting season for cows; and you recommend the domestication of the pole cat on account of its playfulness and its excellence as a ratter. Your rcuiurk that d ims will lie quiet if music he played to them, was superfluous entirely superflu ous. Nothing disturbs clams. Clams nicrtin lie quiet. Clams care nothing whatevorabout music. Ah, Heavens and eartli, lrteml, it you had made the ac quiring of ignorance the study of your life, you could not have graduated with higher honor than you could to-day. I never saw anything like it. Your ob servation that the horse-chestnut, as an article of commerce, is steadily gaining in favor, is simply calculated to destroy this journal. 1 want you to throw up your sit uation and go. '( want no more holiday -I could not enjoy it, if I had it. Cer tainly not with you in my chair. I would always stand in dread of what you might be going to recommend next. It makes me lose all patience every time 1 think of your discussing oyster beds under the head of ' Landscape Gardening." I want you to go. Nothing on earth could per suade me to take another holiday. . Oh, why didn't you Idl me you didn't know anything about agriculture?" " I knew there was no use in arguing with a man who could talk so unreason able, and so sorrowfully left him to con duet his paper alter his old fogy nolioiii." AFightinsr Man. NEofthc generals of the '' Lost J Cause" says that at the time of the attack upon Port Pillow, tho Confederjte had convened a Mississippi boat into a cotton-clad, the mate of which wasa big double fisted sample of a river-bully, full of strong oaths," enforcing his orders by knocking men about the head, and adds; Just before we came into tho fi;ht, he came swaggering up to me and said : " Well, General, I , suppose when one side or the other's licked, yo'ubi" men'll quit and shake bands ?" " Yes, Jim," said p " when the fight ing is over J. expect every man to" go homo and attend to his business." "That ain't me," said Jim, smiting his left palm with his fist liken sledge ham mer, "for if I ever ketch a Yankee- south of Cairo, I'm going to mash him." A ten-inch shell that eauio whistliri" over the boat interrupted any further re marksjust then, and shortly after we were puttinp away at the Federal boat in about as hot a fire as I ever want to see. I am sure that there was one huu clred guns opened upon us and we got one broadside so near that the flash of their guns set our cotton bales on fire. Our people fought well; the other side was too much for us, and wo hud to drop down the river. During the action, while cannons were roaring, boats sink ing, shells shrieking and bursting till around, and the air filled wilh smike and flame. I quite lost sight of Jim ; and after wo had dropped down the river, out ofthe fireand all hands were repairing dam ages, that valiant hero crept out from be hind a cotton bale, and sneaking past me with a flag of truce, said : " General, I an't so mnd us I was. This ain't the kind of fightiu' I'm used to ; and when them fellers get ready to stop thrown' them iron pots around I'll quit if they will. KLV- " Wero you iu tho fight 1" said an officer to an elderly negro on a steamer after taking a fort. "Had a little taste of it eah." Stood your ground, did you "No sab, I runs."
