A WIFE'S CURIOSITY GRATIFIED.
Mrs. Browu and her gossip, Mrs. White,
werecoDVir-irjg about husbands aud the se
crets of Freemasonry. Mr. Brown was a Free
mason; and the fact of nof being able to share
the sverets of the Order with him made Mrs.
Br?wu very uohappy. She was pouring out
her grief to Mrs. White, aod saymg for the
thousandth time, "I wonder what they do in
tin; Indge-room ?"
"1 have no doubt but it's dreadfull," replied
Mrs. While. "But if uiy husband was a Ma
suu, I'll bet I'd find out what he did."
"But how? They dare not tell."
"Ah ! but I'd m?Ice him tell."
"How ? oh, how ?" asked Mrs. Brown, anx
iou.-ly.
"IIusl. ! I'll tell you; but don't breathe it
for the world, because it is a dead secret."
"No, no; I won't."
"Well, do you know that tickling a person's
ear when they are asleep will make them talk."
"Mo. Will't though ?"
Yes. Now you wait till Bruwu comas home
from the lodne next time, and have a broom
straw in the bed. When he gets asleep you
tickle his ear with it gently, aud he will begin
to talk about what he has been doing at the
lodge, and in this way you can get the whole
of the business out of him."
"Gracious me ! Yon don't say so, Mrs.
White?"
"To be sure I do. I always get my husbaud's
secrets out oi him in this way."
"I'll doit !"
"And you'll tell me all about it, won't you?"
"L'ertuiuly. But you must never say anything
about it."
"Oh, of course not. I'm very close mouthed"
replied Mrs. White, earnestly.
So it was agreed upon, and they soparated.
But unfortunately Mr. White had overheard
tho conspiracy ,and 1< st no time in informing M .
J>n>wn, who laughed heartily over it.
A few nights afteiwaid Brown attcoded a
meeting ol his lodge, aud his wife was all anx
iety regarding it. On retiring, she armed her
self with a spray from her bloom and wakefu ly
wailed for her lord aud master to returu. At
last >lie had almost broken down the vail of sec
recy which bad troubled her so long, aod her
heart beat wildly when she heard him opeu l! e
front door aud come in.
Of cours-e she pretended to bo asleep, aud did
not see the comical smile on her husband's face
as he turned up the gas and began disrobing f->r
bed. But I e said nothing, and in a few mo
ments lie was comfortably tucked in aod giv
ing out premonitory indications of approaching
sleep.
Then Mrs. Brown opened lier eyes cautiously
and convinced herself that he had gone to that
land from which s'eepy husbands never return
until some time next day. Cautiously she reach
ed under the pillow, and took the brootn straw
from its hiding place. Then she reachcd over
carefully aud begau to tickle her husband's ear,
a:id he was all the while doing his best to keep
from explodiug with laughter.
Finally he began to talk a littlo. and her cars
were keenly alive to every syllabic.
"Yes, he must die," said he. "He betrayi d
our secrets to his wife. I've got to kill him?
the lot l'ell on me."
Mrs. Hrown screamed and leaped from the
bed, while her husband, unable to control him
self, gave vent to his laughter and disturbed the
neighbors for the uext ten minutes. Jiut they
oever came to any understanding about the
strange affair. She never asked him what he
was laughing at, and he never inquired what it
was which made her scream aud leap out of bed
so quickly.
Mrs. Hrown and Mrs. White don't speak now.
She thinks Mrs. White played a joke on her,
and she seems to have lost much of her anxiety
regarding the secrets oY Freemasonry.
Sandwich Island Women.?A lady writ
ing froui Honolulu, thus discourses upou the
native women aud their free and easy minners:
"The women are erect, wide in the shoulders,
and carry their heads like queens. Many of
them are truly handsome, wearing their hair
falling over their shoulders in curls, and sur
mounted with little straw hats, garlanded with
wreaths of lovely uativo flowers. They clothe
themselves modestly and prettily, wearing the
dress to cover neck and arms, and falling loose
ly from the shoulders to the top of the feet,
which are often bare. Not being civilized like
us, they have not been enlightened into com
pressing their ribs with iron and whalebone
corsets; nor to disturb and torture their feet
with ovtr-tight shoes; nor to put bonnets upon
their heads runniug up into turrets of silk and
artificial flowers, aud leaving the cars at the
rncrey of bitter winds; nor to make up forty-five
yards of steel wire into cages and fasten them
selves within them; nor to carry an extra half
yard of dress stuff bravely after them over the
pavement through thick aud thin. Yes, these
"women have the advantage of us, for are we
not forced by the exigencies of custom, when
we come with our long garments upon any im
purities of the pathway, to shut, our eyes and
clmeh our teeth and rush blindly over them,
whereas those Kanaka wom*n, at the sight
eveu of a spot of water, lift their light gar
ments gingerly, and pass over, clean aud un
sullied from its contact? Can this be bar
barism ?
Habitual Impulse. ?Habitually enthusi
astic people are never so happy as when they
are endeavoring to save you from yourself.
It is, however, fortunate that the passion
which informs such persous, is one of peculiar
instability aud caprice. Their ambition is
to be doioir, no matter what, so that the
blood be exercised; and uninformed by prin
ciple, and without any special object in their
ministry, they so divide their industry among
the many, as to render endurable the suf
ferings of each. A firm show of resistance
soou banifhes the tormentor, who does not
feel ?ny defeat or disappointment in being
compelled to transfer his dispensations from
Jack to Jonathan.
