OTTAWA FUEL Til AD Eli: SATtIftDA, MARCH 7. 1674.
BUDGET OF FUN. Get 1 1 ok lUd or the Spirit. When .spiritualism first mado its appear. mice in the village of , old Deacon Isaacs, a wealthy man, who had stood by the church for nearly three score years, was exceedingly bitter against all believers in the "devil's work," ns he called it, and denounced spiritualists mid spiritualism In no very fcealle language. Imagine the deacon's anger, then, when six mouths' uflerwards he lound it had worked its way into his own family, and not only were his w ife nud daughters believers, but one of them was a medium, and possessed full power to converse with the spirits of those who had departed to that bourne from which no traveller returns. Deacon Isaacs was mad dreadfully mad but ho had wit enough not to show it, and he bore the taunts of the ungodly with a meek spirit. He knew it would be useless to declare open war, for Mrs. Isaacs alone had always proved more than ti match for him, and he was sure to be defeated. He must circumvent the critter, as he expressed it, and to that end he set himself to work, lie was a man of sound judgment and his worldly experience of fifty years was not thrown away. From the day it hist came tthU knowledge that his wife and daughters were spiritualists he never spoke a word against it nor did he ever allude to it, except in general terms in his morning prayers; but anyone could seo it troubled him, for he was absent minded, his eyes wandered restlessly, and his countenance looked care-won. The deacon witnessed one or two sittings ut his house, and was satisfied that, if he pos sessed a little more knowledge ho could get rid of the annoyance. So one morninng he started. for the city, determined to thoroughly investigate the subject before he returned. After visiting two ot the most popular medi urns and paying his money, he returned home satisfied Unit he could se through it. There was a sitting at the deacon's house on the night he returned, and his daughter Mary the medium invited the deacon to take a seat at the table, which to her gratifica tion was accepted. The spirits were in a good tune and so ex ceedingly communicative that the deacon was induced to ask a few questions, which were readily answered; and his wife and daughters were in ecstacies at the thought that the father would yet be a believer, uud urged the deacon on in his inquiries. "Has my wife always been true to her mar riage vows!" asked the deacon. To this question there was no rap in return, while Mrs. Isaacs sat transfixed with holy horror that such a thought should enter her husband's mind. "How many years have passed since she was untrue'"' Answered l:y single raps. Then came slowly and solemnly, one, two three, four, and so on until they reached twenty. "How many who claim to'be are my chil dren V" Again the spirit rapped one, two. .Mrs. Isaacs looked dumfounded. "Murcy!" said Mary. "Which are they?" asked the deacon, who now seemed so intent on his subject that he paid no attention to his companions. "Mary Sarah," rapped the spirits; tle names of the two daughter, the elder of w horn was under twenty. Mrs. Isaacs could stand it no longer. "It's a lie! 1 didn't! It's a lie!" she shrieked, rising from the table, "they are your children, Deacon Isaacs, and (od knows if." "But the spirits allirm differently," said the deacon, in a solemn voice. "Then they lie!" saul his witc. "But if you believe in them in everything else, why not in this?" "But I don't believe in them at all, it is all foolery." "Nor I!" shouted Maiy. "Nor I!" added Sarah. "Then," said the deacon, while a smile illuminated his countenance, "we will bid them good bye, and leave those things which tiod has wisely hidden from us to be revealed in His time." Mrs. Isaacs was so glad that none t' the neighbors were present; but somehow the story got w ind, and so fearful were the dames ofN that they might be caught in some trap which the deacon had set, that spiritual ism was driven entirely from the village. A Dioheai'ti'iiuil Insurance Agi lit. A family named Kemper moved into a house in our row. last week, writes Max Adeler, and Benjamin P. Gunn, the life insurance agent, who lives in the same row, was the first caller. He dropped in to see if he could not take oat a policy for Mr. Kemper. Mrs. Kemper came down to the parlor to see him. "I suppose," said Gunn. "that Mr. Kemper has no insurance on his life." "No," said Mrs. Kemper. "Well I'd like to get him to take out a pol icy in our company. It's the safest in the world; the largest capital, smallest rates and biggest dividends." "Mr. Kemper don't take much interest in Hitch things now," said Mrs. K. "Well, madam, but he ought to, in common justice to you. No man knows when he will die, and by paying a ridiculously biuull sum now, Mr. Kemper can leave his family in utliuence. I'd like to baud you a few pamph lets containing htatistics upon the subject; may 1 ?" "Of course, if you wish to." "Don't you think he can be induced to insure?'' asked Gunn. ';J hardly think so," replied Mrs. Kemper. 'He is in good health, 1 suppose? lias lie complained lately of being sick?" Not lately" "May I ask if lie has any considerable wealth"?" "Not a cent.1 "1 hen of course fie must insure. .No poor man can atlord to neglect such an opportun lty. 1 suppose lie lavels sometimes; goes about in railroad curs and other dangerous places." "No, he keeps very quiet." "Man of steady habits, I s'pposc?" ' Very steady." ' He "is just" the very man I want," said Gunn. "1 know I can sell him a policy." "I don't think you can," replied Mrs. Kemper. "Why? When will he be home? I'll ca;l on him. I don't know any reason why 1 shouldn't insure him." 'I know," replied Mis. K. Why?" He has been d' ad 27 years!" .-an! the w idow. Then Gunn lift all of a sudden He will not insure any of the Kcmp"rs. Mendelssohn was, w hen a youth, clerk to a very commonplace, in fact, stupid employer. One day an acquaintance commiserated the clever lad on his position, saying, "What a pity it is that you are not master and he clerk." "Oh! ray friend." returned Mendelssohn, "do not say that. If he were my clerk, what on earth could I do with him?" This story i told of a seven year old cynic at a juvenile party. He kept nlooffroin the rest of the company, and the lady of the house called to him, saving: "Come and play and dance, my dear. Choose one of those pretty girls for your wife." "Not likely!" cried the young cynic. "No wife for me! Io you ill ink I want to be worried out of my life 'ike poor papa?" ' Rector's daughter (to Sunday scholar) "Oh. vou have an elder brother; well, how old is he?" Schoolboy: "Dudlo, miss, bm he's A.WKOXGKi AND DECEIVED WIFE. The Folly of Writing Love-Loiters. A tired husband went home from his work last night, and taking off his coat, requested his wit'o to iienil ft Vent in his sleeve, then sank upon the s.if i behind the evening paper. Wife-like, she took up the coat; woman-like she dived into the pockets. From the inside pocket she drew forth a letter, directed, in delicate chiroL'iaphy, to her husband. With darkening brow, she quickly took the suspicious-looking missive from the envelope, and, without noticing the date began to read ; "Deaii GeoK'uc: I am lonely, oh, so lonely, since you left me last Thursday nirht." "Ah, h;i ! tliul was lodge night, he told me ;" said the now thoroughly interested woman, as she glanced viciously over at her husband, who appeared to be just" falling asleep. "Oh, how cuu you sleep with the weight of this deep sin upon youV But I'll see what more the brazen huzzy has to say, if it kills me." With one hand pressed to her throbbing heart siie read on : "1 know I am foolish, darling, but when you are away there seems to be a harrier between me and all that is bright and lovely. The sun does not shim half so bright ; the moon is but a white spot in the nkv, and the stars stare coldy down, when you are not with me, lord of n i"v life and heart." "Vi'as it for this? was it for this?" moaned the unhappy wife." "Fortune speed the dfty when we may be united in those indissoluble bonds that are sacred in the eyes of Heaven and earth ' "What mockery ! Does he or she consider that his vows made to me arc not sacred ? What are they going to do with mc, anyway, I wonder? roisotCperhaps. Oh, false, false perfidious man! Oh, wicked, hellish, design ing woman!" Still the suffering woman read the letter, though each word burned to ashes a thousand hopes ami joys : "When we need no more meetclandestinely, and tremble in each other's embrace" "I'd make you tremble if I had you in my embrace a minute !" "when my head may be pillowed in safety upon your breast " "The fiendefs!" "and your anas twine in loving pressure about ine " "Furies!" "and our lips smother the tender words that would escape between them." "Oh, the siren ic she-devil!" hissed the woman, as she tried to keep down the boiling rage within her. She crushed the letter in her hands, then threw it upon the floor and sprang upon it w ith her heels, as though it were a snake, and ground it into the carpet. Then with clenched hands and compressed lips, she strode rapidly back and lorlhjacross the room, ever and anon making a move as if to spring like a fury upon her husband, who, with a paper over his face, as apparently sound asleep, dreaming, perhaps, of the wicked temptress that had come between him and his fond wife. Presently a reaction took place, and the wretched woman sank into a chair and found relief in that blessed panacea lur leinale ills a Hood of tears. Grown calmer .nfterU a jwlnlc, she picked up the rumpled letter, smoothed out the creases, and with an air of mingled despair UDi resitnaton, looked for the signature. "Your "ever loving and devoted, but poor, apprehensive " "What's this! Flut flut tering birdie. A-da Ada. Why, bless me! this is one of my own old letters tijGeorge. What a fool I" A sound from the sofa, tirst like escaping steam, and then like a car rattling o'er the stony street, assured her that her ridiculous actions had been witnessed by her husband. Burning with shame, the foolish woman Hew to her room, and locked herself in, and she is almost as miserable now as when she felt that she was a wronged and deceived wife. inihtiin'rkti: A well-known judge of the Supreme Court of New YorK often relieved his judicial re marks with a touch of humor. One day, during a trial of a case, Mr. Gunn was a w it ness (in the stand, and, as he hesitated a good deal, and seemed unwilling, after much persistent questioning to tel! what he knew, the judge said to him, ''Come, Mr. Gunn, don't hang lire." After the examination had closed the bar was convulsed by the jtiil.ru adding, "Mr. Gunn, you can go oil you can be dis charged." The King of I'ei sia once ordered his vizier to make out a list of all the fools in his doinin. ions. He did so, and puthis Majesty's name at the head of them. The King asked him why, to which he immediately answered: jieeause von entrusted tuae oi rupees 10 men you don't know to uny noi ses lor you a unnia- and miles oil, and who II never come hack.

He came at length to a sergeant who had been struck by a bullet in the left breast directly over the region oi ihe mart, ine doctor, surprised at the narrow escape of the man, xclaimed," hv, my man, where in the name of goodness Could your heart have been!" "I guess it must have been in my mouth just then, doctor," replied tiie poor fellow with a faint smile. We see in many of our exchanges the (pies' tion, "What is Brewinjr?"
