Mrs. Bright Ah, Mrs. Cheery, I'm de

your little Johnnie to see me I How do you
do, sir? I'm glad to see you, my little man 1
Mrs. Cheery Shake bands with the lady,
Johnnie (Johnnie -won't and doesn't). He
Pegged so to go out with me this afternoon
and I said he might if he'd be a very, very
good little boy and Johnnie, let that vaso
alone and he said that he would, so I
Johnnie, don't take that book off the table.
I think it a good plan to take children out
once in Johnnie, stop turning the leaves of
that book so fast. Lovely day, isn't it? I'm
so glad that Johnnie, stop pulling the
fringe off that chair I'm so glad winter ia
over, for I'm so tired of Johnnie, will you
let that piano alone? If you're not a good
boy mamma will as I was saying, it's so
delightful to haye a few sunny days after
Johnnie, let that album alone.
Mamma don't want to speak to you every
minute. After all, the winter has seemed
very short for Johnnie, you mustn't go up
stairsCome here. Now, sit right down
here by mamma. Did you see Rosina
Vokes? Wc went and I Johnnie, if mam
ma has to speak to you again about bang
ing away on the piano she'll .take you
right home I Yes, I thought Rosina lovely
in the dance, and as a Johnnie, you'll
break that cup and saucer if you're not care
ful. What a beautiful cup it is, Mrs.Bright;
real Dresden, isn't it? I'm so fond of
there, Johnnie, I told you you'd upset that
table if you weren't carefuL I'm so sorry,
Mrs. Bright, and the cup is broken I Dear,
dearl Johnnie, you come right home with
mo, and you shall never, never, nerer go out
with me again. (But he does the next day.)

MR. JOHNSING'S HOE.
He Didn't Tell His Wife About It
So He Got Into Trouble.
OLIATH JOHNSINCt
why you so late!
Supper has been a
spilin' on de stove dis
half hour,' and Aunt
Lucy faced her liege
lord with tern dig
nity, but ready to be
propitiated.
'Ole Daddy Moses
an' me been a-havin'
it out."
"Havin' what out!
Tou ain't been an1
had a fuss with Mr.
Benson, 'Liah John
sing?" "Yes, I have. Ole
Bkincher. Here I been
a-hoein' hard in de liel all day, and he mean
'nough to dock my wages ten cents 'cause
I waren' t back at noon jest at de minute. I
warn't late more'n half an hour or tree
Quarters or an hour at de mos an I was
dot 'cause I had to see Sim Jones 'bout da
watermillions for de church fest'ble. But
I give him piece of my mind."
"I 'spose Mr. Benson don want to pay
for work he don' git."
Don' git? Why, thar was Sam Stevens
an' Bill Jenkins; they talk more'n half de
time, an' rested on they handles more'n
t'other half, an' did he dock them any f Not
he. He got spite 'gain me. Iknowdatrdlslong
time An' he's as close 's a pignut, any
way." "Did you git yo' ten cents!" asked Aunt
Lucy, wisely waiving arguments.
"No, I didn't Nor he won't git no mo1
work outen me for nothin', an' so I tol' him
to his face," replied Goliath, following bis
wife into the supper table, whereon the
corn was steaming in a golden pile, the
red tomatoes were temptingly sliced, and
the redder water-melon occupied the place
of honor in the center. The sight mollified
to some extent the angry man, and his
grumblings died away in a vague muttering.
"Whar'dyou git dat new hoe?" queried
Aunt Lucy, as 'Liah hung that instrument
up in the wood-shed preparatory to a souse
in the basin of water ready in the kitchen
sink.
"Nebber you mind. Women always want
stick their nose into ebberyting."
Mr. Johnson was evidently in a very bad
humor.
'An' what you done wid our ole hoe you
took away dis noon! You didn' trade dat
off for new one, dat I know, 'Liah," persisted
his wife.
"Yes, 1 did, 'f ye will know."
" 'Liah Johnsmg," blurted out Aunt Lucy,
as a sudden suspicion flamed in her eyes,
'dat ain't one of Moses Benson's hoes? You
ain't gone an' changed off yo' ole hoe for
one his'n.Ihope! You wouldn' do dat if he
is a skincher, 'n' you a member de church,
'Liah Johnsing!"
"Miss John sing, you jest ten' to yo'own
buis'ness. Don' you let me hear no mo',
not one mo' word, 'bout dat hoe. You hear
me?"
With closely compressed lips Aunt Lucy
completed the preparations for supper. She
called in the children six, of all ages and
they sat down.
'"Liah Johnsing, ask de blessing," she
said, her usual intimation that all was ready
for a start, but on this occasion accom
panied with a look that said plainly: "If
you can."
The meal went somewhat gloomily off.
The overtures of the younger fry to either
parent were grumpily met. Supper things
being cleared away, young Sally sat down
to the melodeon in the parlor and played
Moody and Sankey songs for the Johnson
chorus, whi'e their elders sat in the porch
and silently watched the young moon go
down, each absorbed in unpleasing medita
tion. Suddenly, as bed-time drew near, 'Liah
rose and went into the house, saying as he
went: 'Got to go down to de sto', Lucy. I
forgot I got to mow Dawkinses fiel to-morrow,
an' my whetstun's worn clean down to
de bone, an' I've got to start off to-morrow
'fore sto's open."
'Liah had been gone hardly a minute
when Aunt Lucy called in a tragic whisper
to Paul, her oldest boy, six years of age,
who was just then deep in '-Only an Armor
bearer:" "You, Paul, you come here quick,
by yo'self."
Paul, used to obeying, came promptly,
and was drawn close up to-his mother on the
settee. "Now, you Paul," continued the
tragic -whisper, "I wonder kin I trust you
to do something for me."
Paul, distrustful of such general demands,
kept discreetly silent.
"I wish you's a little bigger, but de Lord
will hoi' you up. Paul, you listen.' '
A small boy could hardly listen more in
tently. "When yo' paw comes home from de sto',
an' we's all gone to bed an' got 'sleep yo'
hearin',Pauli"
"Yes'm."
"You get up still's a mouse, an' you go
git dat hoe yo' paw brought home, an' don'
"tou hear jib!"
you make no noise takin' it down, an' you
iwerryoai noe' ODer to Jar. Benson's you
hearin', Paul!"
"Yes'm."
"An'youputdathoewharhekeeps his'n
you know whar his tools be, Paul"
' ''o" " siaoie aov
"An' TOU take da hra fist's n-.i..
dat's our hoe, Paul, dat yo' paw left thar by
'stake vou take dat boa an' n-inr it va
an' hang it up in de woodshed, an' don' you
nebber tell yo' paw nothin' 'bout it. You
hear me, Paul!"
"Yes'm."
Thank goodness Mr. Benson don' keep
2 dog- An' you be mighty still now,
PauL Paul, you say ober what I tell you.
You's to wait 'till we all's aileep "
"You's to wait 'till we all's asleen."

kin. I do b'lieve dat's yo' paw now l de
kitchen. He must ha' com in de back gate.
Now you 'member rse'lyiu' on yo' a good
deal, FauL"
"Yes'm."
Luckily Mr. Johnson chose an early bed
time to insure early rising for the morrow's
mowing. Lucidly, because young Paul,
exalted beyond measure by his mother's un
wonted confidence, and the supreme delight
of the mysterious plot, bubbled over with
sly winks and significant gestures, which
would infallibly have led to a complete dis
closure if his father had noticed them.
'Lisa's guilty conscience did not bring
about the proverbial insomnia, but long
after his snores had begun to resound
through the low chamber, Aunt Lucy's
eyes were wide open, and her ears intent
on the slightest noise. She grinned uneasily
in the dark as she heard a slight rustle by
the door, a creak or two on the rickety
stairs. Her heart leaped as the shed door
shut with a loud bang, but 'Liah slept on.
The moments seemed hours. How she longed
to go to the window, which commanded
a complete view of Paul's journey across
lots to Benson's 1 But she consoled herself
by remembering that it was pitch-dark, and
she couldn't see any thing, any way.
At last came the longed-for creak on
the stairs, the second rustle past the chain
ber door, and Aunt Lucy, with a satisfied
smile and a muttered "Bress de Lord I"
vent soundly to sleep.
The first sun-rays were shining in at the
window through the morning-glories, the
early breakfast was smoking on the table,
the six young Johnsons were . straggling
down in various stages of sleepiness; Aunt
Lucy was bending over the stove and 'Liah
washing at the sink, when a loud knock was
heard at the kitchen door, which, being
"FORE DE LORD, SIB. DEN SOX, I AIX'T OOT TO'
HOE."
opened, disclosed Mr. Benson. By his side
stood the village constable. In his hand
was an old and much-battered hoe. 'Liah
saw the hoe and his upper jaw fell. Aunt
Lucy's gaze also was riveted in amazement
on the same article.
"Goliath Johnson," said the constable,
"you're my prisoner. You stole Mr. Ben
son's hoe."
"Fore de Lord, Mr. Benson, I ain't got yo'
hoe. What you doin' with mine!"
"You needn't pretend that you left your
old hoe in my barn yesterday by mislaka,
'Liah Johnson," burst in Mr. Benson, "as if
you couldn't tell this old thing from my new
hoe. Luckily I took note of your hoe yester
day, and so found you dut. What have you
got to say for yourself?"
"You may search dis place, Mr. Benson,
from top to bottom an' side to side, an' you
won' fin' no stiver of yo' old hoe. How you
got mine, I 'clar I give up, but you kin see
for yo'self. Now, here's where I keeps my
hoe," and 'Liah swung open the woodshed
door.
There hung Mr. Benson's new hoe.
"Yiu Paul!" fairly shouted Aunt Lucy,
pouncing on her young hopeful, "what did
you do las' night?"
"Did jist what you tol' me," blubbered
Paul. "Took back dat hoe aa' changed it
for de one in Mr. Benson's barn."
"Took back what hoe!" shouted 'Liah in
his turn. "Lucy Johnsing, what you been
stickin' yo' fingers in!"
"Well, 'Liah, I 'lowed I warn't goin' to
have no hoe in dis house what didn't b'long
to us by rights, 'n' so I tol' Paul to git up
las' night an' change de hoes back agin, an'
if he did it, how dis one comes here beats
me."
"Tou Lucy Johnsing, see what you's
been an' done wid yo' meddhn' I I took
back that hoe 'fore I went to bed, when I
made's though I was gettin'de whetatun,
an' then you went 'n' changed ''em back
gin 'n' got de constable on me I"
"Liah Johnsing, why you keep secrets
from yo' wedded wife? Why did 'a you Ull
me you's gwlne put dat hoe back!"
By this time Mr. Benson saw that there
was something more in the matter than he
had supposed, and, sending away the con
stable, he got from the worthy couple, with
much circumlocution, the story of the
night's mistakes. Being a man with some
sense of humor, he was quite mollified by
the comicalities of the situation, and even
went so far as to take breakfast with the
Johnsons, in response to Aunt Lucy's re
peated solicitations and in token of restored
good feeling.
An' after dis, 'Liah Johnsing," was Aunt
Lucy's moral, "you'd better tink twice
iore you Keep any secrets from yo' wedded
wife!"-A. R, Wells, in Drake's Magazine.
A SHATTERED HOPE.
George Could Deny Sbthlag and Coaw
qneaUy 1-oit His Bt Girl.
"Mary," he said, softly, as he pressed her
hand.
Bhestarted, but stopped at the post. She
wasn'tused to being called Mary without
the "Ann" after it,and for a moment it sur
prised her. But she reached out after her
composure and recovered it.
with rare presence of mind she respond
ed: "What is it!"
Oh! gentle reader, to what volumes mignt
not these three words have been the key.
There was a chance for him to tell all he
knew, and much more than he could then
makeup. For George (such was the name
of our hero) was a traveling man. He could
talk of Barnum or he could tell at what
perils he had subdued the Texan Cimex.
She didn't know what a Cimex was and
would never have perceived the difference.
But he went on in the straightforward,
blunt way which he used in bluffing an ace
high pat hand, and said :
"Will you be my wife?"
"Alas I" she answered, you must give
me time to think."
George drew his watch from his pocket.
"No, it can not be," she went on.
"Why not!" he asked in tones that were
husky, because she had just stepped on his
corns.
