OTTAWA 'FREE TRADER; SATURDAY; JANUARY 4,1878.(
BUDGETOF FUN. His Mother-iu-Law's Jaw. Tlifi San Antonio (Tex.) .! promises to ftand good for the following: A tall, angular woman in a sun-bonnet, with a stride like n man late for a train, came into the recorder's office yesterday morning, and took a seat on the end of a bench near where tho city marshal was at work at his desk. She removed her bonnet, laid it across her knees, removed her spectacles, and alter snapping her eves a couple ot tunes at the city marshal nsKctl in a voice summing iiKeacross-cui8:iw . . i i i. . "J5e you the man that locks people upV" "Sometimes I tnui it requisite to anneal to that extreme measure," answered the ollicial. "I know all that, but be you the man t" "Yes.madame." " ell, why didn't you sav so when I asked you?" "1 Cllll. "I say you didn't." "What do you want, niadame." asked the r-ily marshal. . "I want that irood for-nothinc skunk that wa.4 married to my darter locked up." nut. nas ne doner ' "Yes, what's he done, the vile wretch ?" and she breathed hard, glared about and gritted her teeth, until the officer felt in his pocket tor i. . i . . , uis ponce wnisue. "Lie calm, madame, compose your leelings, argued the marshal. "He sold me It I ust had him alone lor live minutes what a picture he would make!" "l ontiuue, madame." "I overheard him telling my darter he'd give three hundred and twenty acres of land w ith a gold mine on it to any one who would ampertate my law with a boot jack," said she. " W hat in the worm could nave induced mm to say that?" observed the ollicial. "1 got htm by the hair, urawed him across the kitchen table with one hand, and had only hit him a time or two with the long handled skillet, and he was fallen' me "mother dear' and all that sortot nonsense" "You let un on him you felt sorry for him," observed the ollicial. "Yes. I felt sorter sorrv at his har ffivin' wav. It looked like Providence was agin me. ileb- l)C I'll never get to lay my hands on him no more. It would be just my luck never to leicu nun anouicr cup; uiui. lor mu nrsi nine she seemed distressed. "What could have induced him to talk in that absurd way?" asked the city marshal feel ing uncomtortablc. "But after all it makes me feel good to talk about it. It calls up old recollections, you know. It brings to mind about Matildy's hus band. His liar didn't give wuth a cent. "What s time they had holdin' that inquest. There was some of him in one corner, and some of him hanging on the fence, and right smart of him was wrapped about the ax-handle. It makes me feel bad' about these things, and then to think how tkat miserable little skunk got clear oil", excepting a few pound of liar " "Want do you want me to do?" asked the officer. "If vou can catch him. lust lock him up and send for me; that's all. I'm a law-abidin' wo. man. I've notified the civil authorities to catch him for me. You will know him by the places wliar I hit him with the skillet, the lit tle, wuthless, spindle-shanked, goggle-eyed, brassy whelp. Wanted to ampertate my jaw, did he?" "I really can't imagine what he meant by that remark ?" olcrved the officer or the law, as she went out. "It's perfectly incomprehen sible." Colored vs. Hald-Heailed. Years ago the then well-know n firm of "W. & Co., Boston, agents lor a popular line of Aus. tralian packet ships, received a letter of inqui ry from Cincinnati. Correspondence followed, and second-cabin passages were engaged for Mr. and Mrs. .Joseph Hatfield, their son. Jos- epn, J., anu jtiiss uiancue, who were ponieiy urged to put in an appearance in Boston on or before May 5th, as "the good ship Daniel I Sharp, w hereof Joseph I). Cushing is for this present voyage," would sail master on the klav following, weather permitting. On the morning designated a young darkey xauisite, sporting a tail hat and ivory headed rane, sauntered into the elegantly appointed twice and ueniaiuieu: "Is dis yerde office of W. & Co. ?" "Yes, it" is," growled the senior W. from be- Ihind his desk, frowning over his gold-bowed Spectacles at the intruder. " ell, sah, me and my lolks are gwine out lo Melbourne in your ship Daniel Sharp, I " "rot it l know it you are not going to do my such thing." "How so, sah ? Diiln t 1 correspond wid kou from Cincinnati, and ensrasre passage for lav fodder and ni udder and Miss Blanche?" k "What ! is your name Hatfield?" roared the llismayed agent. i es, sah. mv nanu Hatneld, and " ''Why in the devil ii dn't you notify me that loll were colored 5" "Why in de debi il "idn't vou notify medat ou were bald-hca ! !" The pertinent rci 'r.dcr silenced old "., and. llthough two or th r e passengers who preferred lo have the color hv drawn outside of a ship's lecond cabin gave uii their berths and were re- funded their pa.-- re money, tiie Hatllelds omplacently sailed in the Sharp. "No, I don't v. ,i i one of your lightning kIs," said a Kenn c y tanner to a man w ho iau stopped at ms ....,tse to nut tin patent light ing conductors. "I ain't afraid of lichtninir: t's the thunder! believe's going to knock us liendwinc somedav." "You don't seem lo comprehend," said the edler; "these ere silver tipped rods arc light ing rods, and the gold tipped ones are thun- ter rods just what you want." Aud he persuaded the old man to onur 'he old tipped rods. For the First Header: Do you see that aged kiau? lie is almost 70 years old. Do vou upiosc he is very rich ? Yes, he is.
