Dying wife speaks U> herself: ftf.J
Every dog trill have hi? day,
So will every mao;

[To hoi-husband ]: ? . ? / */>
1'Yes. i'm dying, husband, dying!
.I have had a happy life;
Dont pretend that yon are caving,
You'll not be long wlthoat a wue.
? shall rest in peace; for vondor.
In thai country far and fahr,
Shirt? ase never made with buttons, *
Stockings never aeed repair !
Yon will ?nd that your afilietion ;
Is a blessing in disguise;
Resignation ia a duty- ,
You will wipe your weeping eyes.
?hall find my yonth renewing, .
In that world so new ape strange;
Bot on you will sorely happen ??
. Just aa wondetfnl a chango.
Ahl my eye foresees already
Those becoming mourning suit?,
New and fashionable beaver
Polished manners-polished boote!
Arts of pleasing nicely studied,
Former things ?ll,passed away;
Daily visits to tho barber,
Hair that ia no longer groy."
[Here she is interrupted by dea'h. The
widoweer, gently overcome, is boruc oil say?
ing:)
"Oh, my dear, darling precious wifel
She was the sweetest thing in life.
I never ?hall another hud
Exactly suited to my mind!"
SCENE II.
[A night has paar I away. J
He asked for the e ?ore
To out off her curia
And hile they turned round
He winked at the girlsi *
They went to the undertaker's
To get her a coffin,
And when they came back
The dog was laughing;
They went to tho gravo-yard
. To bury their dead,
And whon they got back
He stood on bia head.
SCENE rn.
.'Who come? here?'"
MA widoweer!"
"What do you want?"
"Another dear!"
"Where's the t'other?"
"She's forgot
8he rests in peace but I do not."
He Binga:
Ohl "John Anderson, my Jo John,"
Is a right good song, 'tis true;
Bot Darby and Joan were two old fools,
And for nie that would never do;
For I like to be off with the old lovo,
And Pd like to be on with the new."
So the night winds sighed and the trees above
Looked down on thc same old story,
Of first wives gone to the kingdom of love,
And second one? ont in their glory.
Reproach him not, yo sisters!
Nor deem tho dead wife wronged,
He tho't upon no other while
To her he still belonged:
"And while ?he lived, sho lived in clovor.
But-when ?he died,'she died all over!"
A CASE WITH A LADY IN IT.
I had just taken possession of the
worst room in Digga' tavern-I was a
?onng lawyer on my first circuit, and
>iggs kept his best accommodations for
the old stagers-when the words, "I say,
Bill," and Tom Mansfield burst upon me
at the same instant .
Tom and ? had been cronies from the
time we had committed our first juve?
nile trespass on Deacon Boxley's water?
melon patch, till we afterwards studied
the action of that name together in Judge
Thompson's office.
"I say, Bill, I've got a case, and want
your assistance in it."
"Ah !" said I, in a consulting tone.
"A will:case," he continued, "foll
of the nicest kind of points, und tho
prettiest woman in tho world for a
client!"
.'What about fees?" I inquired, by
way of keeping up professional appear?
ances.
"Hear the mercenary wretch 1" ho ex?
claimed. "If we succeed, there'll be
plenty of money; if we don't, it will be
a noble cause to fail in."
"That's what they said of the dash?
ing young chap that broke his neck try?
ing to make 2.40 time with the oh ario i
of the san, but it didn't mend his
neck."
- "Confound your mythology; business
is business. Let me state the case."
"Well, state away."
This was it:
John Andrews had settled in the coun?
try when it was yoong. He had grown
with ita growth, and was the proprietor
of half a dozen farms, and "one fair
daughter, the whioh he loved passing
well."
His wife, the partner of the earliest
and severest portion of his struggles, had
died many years before, and his daugh?
ter had become mistress of his house
while yet a child.
As Effie increased in years, her father
prospered; and when at length he found
himself the possessor of wealth, the am?
bition, so common nnder such circum?
stances, of elevating his daughter to a
station in life above that in whioh she
' had been reared became a ruling passion.
The first thing was to buy her a splen?
did education; and like other not over
good judges of the article, he was go?
verned in his choice more by the gaudi?
ness of the ooloring than by any quality
of the texture.
At the end of tho usual period, Effie
was sent home "finished"-that is, in
every respect in which she could be to?
tally spoiled. In one thing only she re?
mained tho same-her love for her father
had defied even tho power of fashionable
education.
A house was purchased in town, of
which Effie was made the mistress, and
at which Mr. Beldon, a young gentleman
of city antecedents, and far too nice to
have anything so vnlgar as a visible call?
ing, became a frequent nud not unwel?
come visitor. Ho had just brains enough
to think of providing for the future by a
schemo of which Miss Andrews, and her
appurtenances, constituted the central
feature. Accordingly, ho sighed and
lied, and fawned and flattered, till Effie's
foolish little heart relented. Z
But ono difficulty remained to be en?
countered. HQW to conciliate the rough
old backwoodsman-there was the rub.
no had permitted his daughter to amuse
herself with tho yoting dandy, much as
Lowonl4hAVQ4llpwcdherto, play with
a monkey or poodle. But could he have
brought hirUBo'ii to tolerate the' idea'of
her marrying anybody, yet awhile--for
the possibility of Buch a remote, futuro
contingency may h?ve occasionally sug?
gested ita^lf?r-*jax>race Boldon was about
the-lost'person on earth, <ta'connection
with whom it would have been enter?
tained. ' Tl
When that gentleman; thereforo,' re?
ported at headquarters, and implored
tho paterual aatiotion of his. suit,' ho,re?
ceived no such thing; "on the* contrary,
quite the reverse.- Indeed, he. only
escaped b?ing kicked out of doors by a
speedy voluntary departure.
When Effie tried to talk her father
over, for the first time in his life, he flow
in a passion with her, and she dared not
renew the subject.
But Love, the little pagan, pays no
respect to the fifth commandant. The
officious interference of friends and
guardians only renders him the more
impatient and unruly; and the present
instance was no exoeption. Clandestine
interviews were arranged; accidental
meetings took, place nt tho.houses of mu?
tual friends, till'tho whole ended in the
gentleman proposing an elopement.
Effie, after protesting that Bhe couldn't
possibly think of suoh a thing, and after
many vain attempts to conjecture what
people would say, at last with graceful
hesitsinoy consented.
Rage, frenzy, despair, are weak words
to desoribe the emotion of John An?
drews, when he fonnd that his house
bad been robbed of its chiefest treasure.
His first impulse was pursuit. It was
night when he set ont, accompanied by
a trusty Scotchman, long in bis employ
and confidence. As the two galloped
along, Mr. Andrews' horse stumbled,
precipitating his rider to the ground,
and falling heavily npon him. Ho was
taken np insensible, and carried to the
nearest house. A physician was sum?
moned, who pronounced the injuries of
a most serious, but not necessarily fatal
cbaraoter.
As soon as consciousness returned, he
despatched a .messenger for a nephew of
his, a lawyer of not very good repute,
residing in a neighboring town.
When Mr. Jackson, the nephew, ar?
rived, he was loft alone with his nncle,
nt tho latter's request. At the end of
on hour tho doctor was summoned, and
requested by Mr. Andrews to note his
signature to paper, to which he then
affixed his name, declaring it to be his
will, und asking the doctor to subscribe
it as a witness, which was done.
On his nephew's suggestion that an?
other witness was requisite, Mr. An?
drews named Macpherson, the Scotch?
man, and requested the doctor to send
him in.
Macpherson, it'seems, had been sent
on Homo errand; but as soou as he re?
turned, the dootor communicated Mr.
Andrews' message, and went himself to
attend a sick call in the neighborhood,
not deeming his presence there immedi?
ately necessary.
When he came back, he was astonish?
ed to find his patient dead. Such a re?
sult, had not, indeed, been unanticipated,
but its suddenness took him by surprise.
By Mr. Andrews' will, which was pub?
lished some days after his death, thc
entire of his property was devised to hie
nophow, who had attended him in his
last moments. Everything was in due
form. True, Macpherson, one of the
witnesses; pursuant to a previous inten?
tion, had sailed to Scotland shortly after
the funeral, and was not present before
tho Judge of Probate. But his hand?
writing was proved, and the evidence ol
the remaining witnesses was quite satis?
factory. He had seen the testator ap?
pend his signature, had heard him de?
clare the paper was his will, and was
positive that, at the time, he was ol
sound mind and memory.
Under all the circumstances, one would
have thought that the young husband
would have been unremitting in tender?
ness and sympathy towards his sorrow?
ing bride, who had sacrificed so much
for his sake. And so he would, had he
devotedly loved her, but he did not.
The fact is, his whole hoart and sonl
and mind were occupied with a previoui
attachment-not from another; the far?
thest possible from that-its object wat
himself. This affection, which was oi
the most ardent description, had mel
with a blighting disappointment in his
wife's loss of fortune; and with her un'
ceasing grief and oontinual self-accuBa
tion-she offered no reproaches to bim?
bo had bot little patience, and soon gav?
her to understand as much. The mac
who, a month before, would have beet
ready to put on mourning had she losi
her favorite canary, turned his bael
upon her in the hour of real affliction.
When at length he was found dead ii
his bed, one morning, after a night o
carousal, the coroner's jury said it wai
the "act of God"-his blessing you wil
call it.
Effie's cousin, instead of making an^
provision for her whoso rights he hat
so ontrageously supplanted, left he
wholly dependent on others, and had shi
not found a home in the house of ai
old aud tried friend of her father, sh*
might have gone forth a shelterless wan
derer.
Tom Mansfield, who had casuall;
made the acquaintance of the yonn|
widow, became warmly interested in he:
cause, and guided probably more b;
sympathy than judgment, had com
menced nu action to contest tho wil
tn .lo under the circumstances just re
l..<ed.
And this was the oase in which h
wished my assistance.
Wo sat up nearly all night in consulto
tion. There was a point which we bot!
thought a "beautiful" one, and wo de
voted our principal efforts to strengthen
ing it.
Ours was the first case on in the mora
ing. Arrayed against us were three o
the oldest and ablest practitioners of th
circuit. Jackson had plenty of mono;
now, and wus himself no fool ia "put
ting up" a case.
j'M.i.unj1 '..wi.. .a un .
I felt a little nervous. It was my first
case loi any iup?rfjMti?A?$ tttby-aa'-Vell
as John Andrews' will, was shout to be
placed on trial . ^'t * ut - J
My courage roTjyed when our
client cattle io, escorted by Tom, who
introduced mo' as his associate, and
handed her to a seat near, oar table.
Pretty.as a pink? as^she.sat facing the
iurft where TOm,frail placed'lier, T felt
that our case had au other "bemutiful
point" in it.
?Almost immediately the trial began.
' The evidence varied but little "from
that already detailed. The attending phy?
sician was very decided in his opinion
that the testator, at the time of signing
the paper in question, was iu the full
possession of his 'mental faculties. ,
The signature of the absent witness
was sworn to* by Mr. Jackson himself,
who further testified' that "<he deceased,
had requested Macpherson io witness the
instrument, at the same time declaring
it to.be bis will. *
At Tom's instance, I subjected this wit?
ness to a searching cross-examination ;
bat he stood fire like a salamanda fly.
He swore that tho testator .bad not only
dictated every line of the will, but had
beard it read, and had twice read it over
himself, before executing it. I gave him
up in despair.
At length the cvidenco dosed, and I
roso to present our point.
It was put in the shape of a motion to
direct a verdict for tho contestant, on
tho ground that the witnesses had not
subscribed in the presence of each other.
I was about to adduoe arguments and
authorities, when the Judge interposed:
"The rule you claim undoubtedly was
the law, but a recent statute has changed
it. The witnesses need not now sign in
each other's presence."
A hasty examination proved His Honor
was right and our main point was done
for.
To our great relief, the conrt adjourn?
ed.for dinner. Wo were to sum up ic
the afternoon. That task, on our side,
was assigned to me, but I felt it wae
hopeless. I was determined, however,
to take nh at satisfaction I could ont of
Jaokson by abusing him as soundly O?
the rules of the court would allow. And,
after all, who could tell ? The jnry
might take the bit in their mouth, and
give a verdict in spito of the law and thc
evidence. Responsibility becomes ama?
zingly light when divided by twelve.
On the re-assembling of the court, ]
was a little surprised as well as annoyed
at Tom's absence. Could it be he waf
leaving mo in tho lurch, and staying
away to avoid tho mortification of om
final defeat ?
I had just risen to address the jury,
when somebody plucked me by the coat,
It was Tom, his eyes fairly gleaming,
and his whole frame in a tremor of ex
citement.
"What's tho matter ?" I whispered
"MaoPhersou's hero."
"What ! the other witness ?"
"Yea, just arrived, notan hour ago?'
"But will it help us to call him ?" -
'.'Trust me for that. Put him on th<
stand at once."
"What shall I ask him ?"
"No matter; you can't go far wrong
if you miss anything, I'll prompt yon.'
Tom was evidently full of soma mys
tory with which he was bent on takinj
everybody by surprise, including my
self.
In a few words I explained to the cour
our reasons forjwishing to re-open th
testimony. Jaokson turned pale, an<
whispered nervously to his counsel, bu
they shook their heads; our applica
tion was one that would be granted, o
course.
"Call your witness," said the Judge.
"Donald MacPhersonl" shouted Tom
The witness, a brawny, honest-facei
Scotchman, advanced to the stand, am
was sworn.
"Go ahead," Tom whispered.
"Mr. Macpherson, look at the signa
ture, and tell us if that is yours."
"It is."
"Do you know the signatdre to th
right of it?"
"Yes; that's the signature of Mr. An
drews."
"Did yon see him write it?"
"No; but I am weel acouent with hi
hand."
"Were you requested to witness tba
paper?"
"Yes."
"By whom?"
"By Mr. Jackson."
'. 'Did Mr. Andrews say anything abon
it?"
"No; he iras dead when I came in."
There was no cross-examination.
"I submit the case without argument,
I said, resuming my seat.
Our senior opponent was one of thoa
lawyers with vLom it is a matter of con
science to ?how fight to the last. In
brief speech, he admitted it to be essen
tial that both witnesses should hav
signed their names before the testator
death, but claimed that, iuasmuch as th
testimony of Jackson and MacPherso
was in direct conflict on this question, i
must bo loft to the jory.
"Certainly," answered his Honor. Bc
when he had concluded his charge, thet
wasn't much of Mr. Jackson or his test
mony left.
The jury gave us a verdict withou
leaving the box.
Tom, I am sorry to say, behaved vcr
unhandsomely in the division of th
spoils.
Although I was liberally paid, he too
tho widow and her whole fortune for hi
share.
As for Jackson, not being quito (
accommodating as Judas, ho didn't g
out and hang himself. But at the rat
he is going, it will take more law than li
knows to keep him much longer out <
tho penitentiary.
