A late number of an educational journal thus describes the trouble a Frenchman had with the verb “break”— “I begin to understand your language bet ter,” said mv French friend, M. Dubois, to me, “but vour verbs trouble me still; you mix them up so with prepositions.” “I am sorry you find them so troublesome,’ was all I could say. “I saw your friend, Mrs. Murkeson, just now,” he continued. “She says she intends to break down housekeeping, am I right there V* “Break up housekeeping, she must have said.’’ “Oh! yes. 1 remember; break up house keeping.” “Why does she do t lint ?’’ I a;-k*d. “Because* her health is broken into." “Broken down.” “Broken down? Oh, yes! And, indeed, since the -niall|M>\ has broken up in our city—” “Broken out.” “She thinks -lu* will leave it for a few weeks.” “Will she leave her house alone ?” “No, -he i- afraid it will be broken- bro ken—how do I say thait.” ud^ i_» “Certainly, it is what 1 want to say.” "Is her son to be married soon ?" “No, that engagement is broken—bro ken—” “Broken off.” "Yes, broken off.’’ “Ah. 1 had not heard of that.” *13be ia very min about it. broke the new - down to her last w eek. Am I right ? I am anxious to -peak English well." “He merely broke the ui'iv- ; uo pre|x»si tion this time.” "It is hani to understand. That young man. her son. i~ a fine young fellow; a breaker, 1 think.” “A broker, and a very fine young fellow. Good day.” So much for the vt rb “to break." Did you ever bear two married women take leave of each other at the gate on a sum mer evening? This i- the way they do it. "Good bv !” "Good by ! Comedown and see us right soon.” “Yes. > I will. You come lip right soon.” “I will. Good-by." “Good-by! Don't forget to conic soon." "No, I won’t. Don't you forgot to come up.” "I won't. Iw sure and bring Sally Jane with you next time." "1 will. I'd have brought her up this time, but site wa-n't very well. She wanted to come aw ful bad.” "Did she, now? That was too bad. In sure and bring the baby.” “I will. I forgot to tell you, he’s cut ano ther tooth.” “You don’t say! How many has he got now ?” "Five. Ii make- him awful cross.” “I guess it does, tfci - hot weather. Well, good-by! Doul you forget to come down.” "No, I won’t. Don’t you forget to come up. Good-by!" And they separate. “You -ay you want to marry my daugh ter ?” “Ye**, sir.” "Are you prepared to give her a pleasant home and the luxuries to w hich she has al ways been accustomed ?’’ "I don't believe I am, sir ; I only get $7 a week.” “Y< W.

We!!. !mw can _\ou reconcile 5-7 a week w ith my surroundings ?” "I —I thought,” responded the intelligent young man. while hi- face beamed with love and Iiojm-. "that we could live right along w ith you, you know, until the time came for you to—to leave off, and then the matter would—would -ort of regulate itself, you know.” “Your husband is in Wall street.
