It vas Sunday. Mr. Skinner
was tired, and thought he would
lie down on (he sofa in the back
parlor and rest.
He lay down and crossed his
feet with a parade hardly justifia
ble under the circumstances.
His wife came in and saw him.
"Why, Lot Skinner!" she ex
claimed, "If I ever heard of the
like!. Lying down on that new
sofa with your boots on, and oh,
my goodness! your head on that
new lace tidy I had done up only
last week. You are the most in
considerate man I over saw in
my life.'-'
Mr. Skiunor got up and his wife
smoothed out the tidy and raar
rangsd it.
"The idea of anybody putting
a head on that tidy," said Mrs.
Skinner, who had no intention of
using slang. "I did suppose you
had some sense.''
"I used to have," said Mr, Skin
ner, good naturdly. "Ya-a-h.
I could take a nap if I could find
a place to drop down. "Ya-a-h."
i'You had better read your Bi
ble," said Mrs. Skinner. She was
a good, uncomfortable woman, so
claan and naat and orderly, that
she made her family wretched
with her domestic drill.
Something culled Mrs. Skinner
off then and when she came back
Mr. Skiunor was gone. She sat
down and took a book, when a
thou't struck her, and sho bound
ed from her chair as if she had
been struck '03' a cannon ball.
Yes, it was just as she had fear
ed; her husband had gone up
stairs, and sho found him stretch
ed out in bed, on tha top of a
white counterpane, his grizzly
gray head sunk deep into a white
starched pillow sham with these
words embroidered in the centre:
"Sleep sweet, beloved!''
He was not asleep, but snoring,
with a look of sweet, content ou
his wide open mouth.
"Lot S-k-i-n-n-e r!"
He got up in a manner that
would have done credit to a gym
tatit. ami atood scaring at the
fearful hollow in the bed and the
wrinkled dent in the pillow
"I declare, 1 forgot," he said,
looting very fcoli&h. '"Alice,
fenven't a place where I can lay
my head? '
"Don't !sik nonsense,'' said his
wife, sharply. "'The idea of a so
ber man going to bed with his
boots on."
"Would you rather I'd got "
"I'd rather you'd get some
common sense," she said. If you
mustsleep in daytime why there's
an old lounge down in the kitch
en; no one r.ill disturb you there
Or I suppose" ungraciously
'I can take ofi' the quilt and the
shams, and let you take your
nap here' though it's wicked,
that's what it is, to sleep Sunday.
It's a bad example to set to the
children, Lot, and Tou know it."
"Uut I am so sleepy," answer
ed her husband; "my head is as
heavy as lead, and I cannot keep
my eyes open."
"Laziness, sheer laziness," said
his wife sharply.
Mr. Skinner went down stairs
and disappeare'd. The last words
hiB wife heard him say were that
there vas rest for the weary, but
she was picking u the embroid
er' on the misused sham witli a
pin and did not heed hina.
She was a distinguisho i wo
man; distinguished in the town
where she lived, as being the
cleanest housekeeper in it. No
girl could be found neat enough
for her; all the mottoes in her
house were to the effect that
cleanliness tms nest lo godliness
She dusted ever' article of the
furniture m the house several
times si day; site scrubbed so of
ten that Ihe children had chron
ic dipththeria; she scrubbed so
clean ihat at last she scrubbed
through the kitchen floor into
the cellar, and was nearly lost to
the community. It was a per
petual warfare between her and
dirt. The front parlor-was never
opened to the family iMid though
Mr. Skinner had furnished it he
had never sat down in it a mo
ment since. Its air was that of
a loiub. After it had been open
ed to coiypany for ail afternoon,
the children wont around with
flannels about their throats aud
drank ginger tea. It was the
handsomest parlor in the com
munity, loo. and had the family
pictures and the marraige certi
ficate framed and hung up there.
When dinn r was ready and
it was a good dinner, loo, for
Mrs Skinner was a notable cook
she asked the children where
their father was.
They did not know.
This seemed strange; she quos-
tionad thorn closely, but they had
f Q,, --i,;, wv ho wont, when
11UO SLCii n - -j
he passed through the room.
" Didn-'t he say where he was
j going?" "lie asked, wonderingly,
for Mr. Skinner never went out
Sunday without his family.
"He said he was going where
he'd have more peace," said little
Harry Skinner.
"Well we won't wait dinner
for htm," said his wfe, and they
sat down lo eat.
But a spell seemed to have fall
en upon them, and when the din
ner was over and cleared away,
and they were in the sitting room
with their books, there was a
sense of dreary loss, and Mrs.
Skinner sat with the Bible open
on her lap and wondered why he
had gene out and remembered
that he had looked queer.
It was in consonance with her
habits of liviug that she got up in
the middle ef these speculations
to catch a wandering and belated
fly and induce him to be annihilated-
"Strange!" she said, as it grew
"I'll take the children and go
down to his mother's and see if he
is there, and if he ie I'll just give
him a piece of my mind."
But he was not there, and his
mother said Lot looked badly the
last time she saw him, and she
thought he seemed worried; hop
ed it wasn't bupinsss troubles."
No it wasn't business troubles;
Mrs. Skinner knew that, and she
began to wonder if she had clean
ed her husband out of his mind
It came over her with sudden
force that she had been in the
habit of driving him from pillar
to post at railroad speed and- at
the end of a broom or dust brush.
He actualy found no rest for the
sole of his foot in his own house
It might have worked upon his
nervous system until he had be
came insane. Horrible thought
He might have committed suicide.
She hurried home with the chil
dren. All was gloom. Sho went
to the bureau to look for his ra
zor. It was the only fire arms
he posseeied it was gone.
Then Mrs. Skinner broke down
and cried, and the children cried,
and it was, indeed, a scene of
desolation, when suddenly the
door of that horrible parlor open
ed, and ao apparition no, it was
Mr. Skiunor himself stood be
fore them looking very sheepish.
"I overslept myself," ho said,
in a meek, apologetic tone, look
ing at the clock.
"I should say you did,"aaid his
wif's, "and the dinner is all ealen
up, but I'll fix you up something
nice," and she went out, taking
the children wilh her.
How much of it Mr Skinner
ever knew it is impossible to say,
but there was an immediate and
satisfactory change that at first
amazed and delighted him. He
could lay down anywhere when
he was tired, and his wife would
throw a shawl over him, and
leave him in peace. He had been
seen to lit down on the parlor
sofa, where he took his Rip Van
Winkle sleep, and nobody dis
turbed him. Mrs. Skinner was
at heart a woman of-sensse, and
when Bhe realized ihat oue hair
of thut grizzly head was worth
more than all the pillow shams
in the world lo her, she put the
last out? away in the company
of a demented assortment of su
perfluous lidios. And thev arc
really and truly, and not in any
zoological sense, a 'happy fam
ily' now.

About four years ago this your.graonths ago, and ho wa's there a Jef
ladv died very suddenly. She is
described as ha.ing been of a
quiet, religious disposition, and
very tall.
The remainder of the ten years
rolled by and the timo for the
reunion came. Accordingly, on
All llallow Eve the six met at
the house of two of their number
who were sisters, for tea ; but,
according to the original arrange
ment, a chair was left vacant for
tha missing oue. Thi chair was
draped in black, while in front ot
it-on the table, were some with
ered flowers gathered from the
grave of the deceased. Nothing
remarkabla occurred during the
repast, cavo that the young lady
nest to ths empty chair spoke ol
a strange nervous sensation, but
this wan not thought of at tire
time. After loa they started to
move to the parlor immediately
adjoining, tho young lady last
mentioned leading the way and
carrying in her hand the bunch
of withered flowers. The parlor
was quite dark, saving the light
whiach streamed in from the din
ing room when she opened the
door. At that moment she cried :
"Look! look!" and pointed to
Iho parlor, wher three or four
of them saw distinctly a tall
while figure standing at the door
horn ttio parlor to tho hall. She
who had first seen it retreated
quickly, and was jtibt leaving the
d:niug-room by the side door
from that room to the hall when
siie again saw the figure aud. her
crv brought three of th? others to-j
tha door, and all saw it didp:
quickly along the hall from the
parlor door to the door leading to
the street, which seemed to open
of itself and close after the figuie
had passed through.
Only one of the six failed to
see the figure at all, she having
in both cases been too lato, con
sequently she was very dubious,
and believed tho apparition to be
merely some kind of a practical
joke, and it once went and in
spected the door ol" exit, but this
.s always kept locked and
latched from within, and v.'as
found to be slill secure, so the
trick theory was completely out
of the question as a solution to
tho mystery.
Our informant saw tho figure
twice, and describes it as being
"just the right height" that is
to say, very tall and wholly drap
ed in white ; no hands nor feet
were to be seen, and the face was
concealed ; it seemed to glide
rather 1 ban to walk, and moved
quickly; it did noi touch the
door at all and did not appear to
pass thro' it, but the door seemed
to open of itself, and close behind
the figure. The sensation pro
duced by the figure was as if it
were chuckling to itself 011 hav
ing kept tho promise to be pre
sent, nd laughing at Ihe scare
produced at least our young la
dy informant stales such to have
been her sensation in so . far as
she had any, apart from the dom

Such is the story, and we give
it for what it is worth without.

A Little Eamnce.
TI10 Washington. Star has the follow
ing account of a romaatic marriage:
Last evening the neat little. JIpLieopal
cliurch, Scuth Washington, was GUed -to
overtlowing to witue33 the wedding
of Mr. Peter McCalmcn.of tho proviflco
of Manitoba, and Hiss Lizzie A-Gabriel.
of this city. There is a little romance
connected with these parties. The
roora lives, as stated, in the province
of Manitoba. whore tho bride has a mar
ried sister living. Through the sister
the croom. about four yeara ago, heard
of Aliss Gabriel, and a correspondence
was commenced, during which, not
withstanding they had never seen each
other, their feelings toward each other
beeame more thansiiuply friendly. The
hearts of the writers glowed with love.
Portraits were exchanged, and minute
descriptions were given of each other.
The result, was that a few months ago
they became engaged to be married, on -condition
that there was no change of
feeling after personal interview. The
young lady in the meantime made prep
arations to take a leave of absence.
The groom about the iirst of the month
arrived here. Being desirous of seeing
the lady, he wrote a note to her, which:
sho failed to receive until Monday ol
last week, when she promptly sent him
directions to lind her place of residence
ou Missouri avenue, and he called that
evening. The chains of love, woven-'
through the art of "the mails, were more
iirnily rivoted at this -meeting. Tho
youcglady's friends were highlypleased
with the gentleman. The result was
that the coapla concluded that it wa3
useless to wait longer,and preparations
were at once made for the wedding,
which took place last evening. While
the ceremony was being performed,
some misch'ttvoiis boys tied a string o
tin cans un-Ior the carriage, and such a
din was raadu as they drove away that
the horses were badly frightened, and
it was with diiiiculty that they wore re
