AM All III ED woman became nn ex emplary Christian, but her husband was a lover of sinful pleasure. When spending an evening, ns usual, with his jovial companions, at a tavern the conver sation happened to turn on the excellen cies and faults of their wives; the hus band just mentioned pronounced the highest encomiums on his wife, saying she was ull that was excellent, only she was a Methodist. "Notwithstanding which," said lie, "such is the command which she has of her temper that were I to take you, gentlemen, homo with me at midnight, and order her to riso and get you a supper, she would be all sub mission and cheerfulness." The company regarded this merely as a vain boast, and dared him to make the experiment by a considerable wager. The bargain was made, and about mid night the company adjourned, its proposed. Being admitted, " Where is is your mis tress : said the husband to the maid servant who sat up for him. " She is gone to hod. sir." " Call her up," said he. " Tell her 1 have brought some friends with me, and that 1 desire she would get up and prepare them a supper." The good woman obeyed the unreason able summons ; dressed, came down re ceived the guests with perfect civility, and told them she happened to have some chickens ready cooked, unci that supper should be got us soon as possible. It was accordingly served up. when she perform ed the honors offhe table with as much eheerfullness as if she had expected com pany at the proper season. After supper, the guests could not re frain from expressing their astonishment. One of them particularly, more sober than the rest, thus addressed himself to the lady ;'' Madam," said lie, "your civility fills us with astonishmcut. Our unreason able visit is the consequence of a wager, which we have certainly lost. As you are a very religious person, and cannot therefore approve of our conduct, give mo leave to ask, what can possibly induce you to behave with so much kindness to us'f" " Sir," replied she, " when I married my husbaud and myself were both un converted ; it has pleased God to call ine out of that dangerous condition. My husband continues in it. I tremblo for his future state. Were he to die as ho is, he must be miserable forever; I think it, therefore, my duty to do all I can to make him as happy as possible iu this This wise and faithful reply affected the wholo company. It left a deep impres sion on the husband's mind. " Do you my dear." said he, " really think I should he eternally miserable? I thank you for the warning. By tho grace of God I will change my conduct." From that time he became another man, a serious Christian, and consequently a good hus band. Omniscience. Layfayetto, the friend and ally of Washington, was in his youth confined iu a French dungeon, in the door of his cell there, was cut a small hole just big euough for a man's eyej at that hole a sentinel was placed, whose duty it was to watch moment by moment till lie was re lieved by the change of guard. All he could see was tho winking, but the eye was always there ; look when he would it met his gaze. In his dreams he was conscious it was staring ot him. "Oh," he says, " it was horrible; there was no escape; when ho lay down and when lie rose up, when he ate, and wiieu he read that eye searched him." So God's eyo is upon each of us, from the very first breath that we draw to the very last. ' The Trials of Courtship. TI1WO friends we'll call them Tom JL and Dick went a few nights since to call on a counle of damsels wlm rpsMo with their mother in the southern part of Erie city. The old lady is slightly deaf and the girls somewhat roguish. The two gentlemen were graciously received by tho old lady who formed a fifth in the social circle. Ordinary bedtime came and the gentleman professed to leave, the maids showing them to tho door. But this was only a ruse to get tho old lady to bed. The front door was opened and shut, and the girls returned to tho dining-room, the two beaus having been slipped into tho front parlor and left there in the dark. It was supposed, of course, that the slighted deaf old lady would soon be in the land of Nod, but. she took a sudden whim to go and sit iu the parlor for awhile, and taking up a light, started for that place. Dick and Tom had been anxious listeners and watchers, and now saw the old lady ap proaching with a lamp. As she passed into the hall, of course their only means of escape was cut off. Dick made a dive bchiud a lounge that stood out a few inches from the wall the framework was too low for him to crawl under and Tom, Gliding no other place, wedged himself in on top of Dick. The old lady set the lamp on the bureau, took up a book, and deliberately seating herself on the lounge, began to read. The feelings of the two nice young men behind the lounge may be better imumnnd tlmn do. scribed. Tom was in dread of imme diate detection, while Dick dreaded smothering. He was so frightfully cramped that he was getting reckless as to conse quences, and in a muffled voice, that only the old lady's deafness prevented uer irom noticing, mumbled to Tom. ' Kick the lou IliiO Over, blow t.lin lniim out, and let's jump through the window." As Dick was squirming in a way that boded o sudden exnnsn for Tom it is probable that the latter would have taken nts advice to the letter, but for the in terposition of the quick-witted girls. At first, exnectincr tho cat was nut. nf the bag they had kept back, ready to take the storm of reproach thev could not, avoid ; but hcnritur no noise after the old lady entered, they went to see what had uecomo ot tlio gallants. Two pair of oooi s anu a loot or so ol pantaloons were visible from the door, and tho girls, ma king some commonplace remarks to their mother, went away laughing loudly. "Pliancy tho phelinks" of the chaps be hiud the lounge. But in a few seconds there came a shout from the wood shed, where the girls were, saying their lamp had blown out, and asking "mother" to come with hers. The boys hcaid them plainly, and even smothering Dick stopped his mutterings and threatening. The good old lady arose, wiped her specks and folded thetn away, frftd bidding tho girls not to be frighteued, went with the lamp to their aid. It would bo superfluous to say that tho lounging boys didn't lounge just there iucli longer. They uulocked the front door as quietly as they could and slid out without even bidding the young ladies good night. It was well they did for in less than three minutes the old lady was seated on the lounge again perusing her book. None of Your Little Nubbins. Tho long drouth has reminded a con temporary of a story told of a Methodist brother at an Ohio Conference, some years ago. There was a great drouth, and the corn crop in particular was suf fering for rain Father B believed in prayer, and invoked relief without fur ther delay. lie prayed for rain, and for abundant crops, especially of corn, say ing : " And now, O Lord, give us a big crop of corn this year. A7one of yir UuU nubbins now, O Lord, but great big ears, us long as yer ann ah !" It rained powerfully that very night. r As a polite omnibus agout of the Lexington and Louisville railroad was go ing through tho ladies' car, checking bag gage, he asked a pretty young lady if she had any baggage she wished taken to the hotels. She replied : " No sir." Tho agent then asktd her if she desir do a 'bus. She instantly gave him a sweet amilo, and replied : "No, I'm not in aJjussing humor this evening.". The agent dropped his memorandum book, hastily retrei t i to the ' baggage car, and said ho felt unwell. How Billy Raised a Muss. V PHYSICIAN prescribed "country air and sea-bathing for the delicate Al rs. Blobbs ; so that tho Bev. B. sent his afi'ectiouale wife and Billy to long Branch. The reverend gentleman told little Bill to write to him as soon as they were set tled there. Truthful Billy seut the fol lowing epistle, without bothering his ma to read it first : "Deah Daddy: It's awful nico herein the country, and me and ma aro having oiiuii juny nines, i ininK tuo nicest place in the world is a watering place, don't you, daddy ? At first I felt awful lonesome with out you, and says to dear ma : " ' When is pa coining from the city ma I' "'Xevcr, I hope, Billy,' says she, your father's such a dry old stick, and wo aro much better oir without him.' "Oil, daddy 1 you wouldn't know ma now if you hadn't seen her before sho's looking so well and young. She has taken to wearing sueh lots of hair and fine tilings and our maid Sally, pays she doesn't look older than many a gal of seventeen. Ma's got a real spleiidecl beau too, with such moustaches and whiskers I Ma calls him Charley. I call him a brick becauso ho gives mo such heaps of candy. Bally says lio's the bcautifulest gentleman sho ever saw. "Tho waiter fellows hero are bully boys, pap, and I get no end of slalo tarts, pio and pound cako, besides bottled ale and tobacco. They arc teaching mo to play euchre, too, and I think it's real nice game-. Ma has no time to look after me ; she's so taken up with dressing, dancing, and dear Mr. Charley. " Oh, pa 1 1 want to see yon awful bad, but don't come yet ; it would make ma so hopping mad. I'leaso write soon' and don't forget to send mo plenty of pocket money. A fellow can't do without tin' here. Your alleclioiiate son. BlIJ.Y." Billy's letter was accompanied by one from Mrs. Bluljbs, which read " thusly j" 'My DAttr;8T Husband: My health is a little beli or, thank the Lord, and I be-in to enjoy tlio Sabbath like peaco of this place. I miss you very much, and my thoughts are often with you; but, for the sake of your flock, I will not ask you join me at present. Dcnr lii tlo Billy and tho Bible are my usual companions, though when I seek it, I find a good deal of religious society here. Arc you lonely without me, dear husband? I hope not, for the fresh invigorating air here is doing me more good than medicine, and if I could remain until September, I believe I might be restored to my former health and strength. " Give my fondest love .to tho dear sisters of our church, and tell them I remember them all iu my prayers. I read your soul-stirring sermon in Monday's Inquirer. It tilled my heart with peaco and comfort. " Willi love and many kisses, I bid you adieu. Will write soon again. Our Billy sends a note, which vnn vi lli nmini. ...in. this. Your loving wife, Lucy Blobus." Mr. Blobbs, in a state more easily im agined than described, left for long Branch immediately after reading the above epistle. .How Mrs. Blobbs received her indignant lord and master, wo don't know, but he brought her back to Goth am. Last Sunday she sat iu her old pew ut church, looking very meek and sorrow lul. Mr. Blobbs, preached a very elo quent sermon taking for his text the following. " Who can Cud a virtuous woman ? For her price is far above rubies." New Yurie Paper. A Curious Question. A corrcspoudeut inquires : " Supposo a man aud a girl were to get married : the man is thirty-five years old, and the girl five years : this makes the man seven times as old as the girl ; and they live together until the girl is ten years old; this makes the man forty years old, and four times as old as the girl : and they still live until she is fifteen, the man would bo forty-five, and this makes him three times as old ; and they still live un til sho is fifteen, tho man would be forty five, and this makes him three times as old ; and they still live on till tho man is twico as old, and so on. Now, how long would they have to lire to make tho girl as old as the man, at tho same rate of reason ?" Waf Whon J udge Howell was at the bar, Mr. Burgess, a barrister on a suit, to play a joke, wrote on tho lining of his hat, " Caput Vuruum," (empty head.) The hat circulated about, exciting a smilo on every countenance except that of tho owner, who deliberately took it up aud repeated tho words, and well knowing tho author, addressed the Chief J ustiec as follows ; " May it plcaso your lordship, I ask protection," holding up his hat;" for I find that Brother Burgess has written his name iu my ' hat, and I have reasons " to bcliovo ha intends to make off with it." ' Jftajr Sometimes I read a book with pleasure, and detoit the author. A Carious Incident. WIIO can say, after read'.ng this lit tle story, that truth is not nearly as strange as fiction : A young man a mechanic by trade, passed tho evening in Brooklyn, about six weeks ago, and was returning to New York on the ferry boat at twelve ; ninety nine out of every one hundred persons always rush directly through a boat to the end nearest their destination, but this youth remained on the after part till it touched the dock, when he passed through tho ladies' sitting-room and observed on a scat a lady's satchel and umbrella Every one was hastening off the boat; there were but three or four ladies in tho wholo party, so the young man seized the satchel and umbrella and hurried after the receding passengers. Holding both articles alol't, he hurriedly , questioned several people. To none of those be longed the property he had taken posses sion of. After waiting about the ferry house somo time he took the captured articles home. Of course he expected that they would bo speedily advertised, for tho satchel, which was locked, and tho urn brella, were well worth some reward. But day after day passed no advertisement appeared and ho procured a' key and opened a little bag, which contained $1000 in government bonds, (unregister ed), a portcmonnaie holding $100 in cur rency, a splendid gold watch and chain, containing an elderly man's portrait, a locket, a slip of paper, and having thereon iu a female hand written these words : " I have waited and waited; you do uot como aud I have ceased to hope. E. P." Upon a marginal piece of some foreign newspa per was tho nauio of a hotel in New York that does not exist. Tho young man consulted headquarters, and he went daily to the Morgue for some female to come ashore, but now two months have goue by; and no trace of tho owner has been found. It is only by one of three suppositions this mysterious satehel can be accounted fur. Either murder, suicide, or sudden insanity has overtaken the unfortunate owner. In the meantime the custodian of tho unexpected fortune is half out of his wits with the embarrassment that be sets his position. You're Welcome. A countryman at the theatre the other night, as the escort of some ladies, retired at an intermission and returned with a. pound or two of peanuts wrapped in a paper, and two huge bananas sticking from his pocket. Just, then, however, and before he had time to tako his scat, one of tho actresses who had won his ad miration, came to the footlights and warbled a beautiful melody. Tho full, rich voice, exquisite intonation and breathing strains almost divine, capti vated the countrymau's heart, and unable to restrain his delight, ho heaved on the stage his peanuts, banauasarid pocket handkerchief as a tributo to tho fair en chantress. There was a momentary as tonishment visiblo on the face on the stage, a single interval of hesitation, which was removed by the countryman's voice full and clear, " Take 'cm, gal, by jingo; you're welcome." t&" At Bccse river, California, a mild looking, rather old man was holding forth on the necessity of orthodox relig ious belief founded on the Bible, in the course of which he condetned the foolish superstitions of a certain religious body. Me spoke of a tradition that existed in Switzerland, and which was devoutly be lieved by the simple people, of church es being built in a night by angels, which ho said appeared too absurb for human belief. As he finished a tall, dust-covered bushwhacker, who had listened to him attentively, took of his battered hat and flnng it on tho ground, and asked in a thundering yoico : "You don't believe in tho story of angels building churches, don't you? Waal, now, what do you think of that yarn of Master Samson's sloshing about tho country upsettin' nicetin houses ?" IQr" Two gentleman, of opposite poli tics, meeting, oue inquired the address of some political celebrity, when the other indignantly answered "lam proud to say, sir that I am wholly ignorant of it." " O ! you aro proud of your ignoranc eh, sir ?" "Yes I am," replied the belligerent gentleman, "and what then sir?" ' "' " 0 1 nothing, sir, nothing; only you have a great deal to bo proud of. that's all."
