MARK TWAiN AND HIS WIFE. 1 An Ideal Llfe-rrtner Tho Three CliU-dren-An Infant Authoress. And now about the people I was asked to meet. I can haru.y wait to toll you a ir.vt.lv wife Mark Twain ha3. It i. Mt TTiwn wo know a trcnius to ww. o trirklrt rnnt.inent L indebted to WUUUl t - find that bis wife u an ideal wife lor anr man. I cannot be trespassing on sacred ground, for does she not belong T toll vr.u shft is YOlinST &Dtt pretty, witn DiacK, lusiruua v pervading air of refinement and delicato breeding that proclaims her, as she w, to the manner born? Of course Mart Tt?t, lnnr T-Virn h( W.I -I -1 tjilot OH thO vr;c;0;i that it was but one of tho Ticissitudes of his varied career, as was aUo his after experience in mining rM,wioaa ,rt Vinrl n idea of a ?f foTi thn which he taind real ized long afterwards in this attractive, ir n,a chm rt Mill and many or. our own illustrious men in saying that ho owes his success in me xo uuj y. ;,ri,f n m her haDDV eyes dance as merrily as any one's over tho irresistible stones or L. n.ari And then their threo ,,ti,4.n r.Y nno with so much indivi Hualitv such centle reproductions or .vqt. Thpv Already write as .,iw oa titlic. Notwithstanding their frequent letters and the telegrams Mrs. Clemens eagerly reads, nothing could keep her long away from them. This visit is almost her first separation from them. Mr. Clemens feaid, "My wife "can trust Providence just about forty-eight hours no longer." How can I tell you with what enjoy ment we sat around the room, some thrown carelessly on the wide lounges or lyino- on cushions and rug3 before tho fcre, all listening to Mr. Clemens, whoso genial flow of characteristic speech, unliks any one we ever heard, would be resumed if wo re belled at his pauses. Ho some times smoked his corn-cob pipe, for no one objects to tobacco at Carc- , rito w whilA he walked about. drawing out the best portraiture of all classes and conditions of men. He ro 0r.a in th( mininor camps, or in lfjocAnri ttcn where his fatner as sheriff reconstructed tho town, and lus mother as private executor 01 laiaujr u administered the whippings at homo. Hi3 brother rarely did anything wrong, ;e ri;d ihn nunishment was in- fiicted on. tho mischievous member, as cooinwl in think nothintr of tho kind could como amiss with tho cider Thero is no inclination to tako and keep tho floor in Mark Twain. Ho laughed as heartily and enjoyed as eagerly tho contributions of others m the cirole to the general conversation as if he wero not tho very quaintest, droll est man in all our land. I was especially amused at a little bistory of the elder child: The parents discovered that she was secretly writing a life of her fatner; at nigm mey the infantile MSS., whilo tho liUiputian authoress slept. Mark Twain, with true cense of fun from that on, posed beforo bis historian with reference to her eizin him up in her manuscript ; m one cf the chapters they filched the next night they found something like this: 1 Buspect father knows that I am writing his life, for ho acted to-day ja if he knew I was writing about him," and then she went on to -write comments on her father's habits, something about her impression that Since Her mother had known him thero was a decided improvement in his uso or strong language. All this f rom a gravo little woman of perhaps 10 years seems very droll, witn ins wwut- i"'- Elizabeth B. Custer's Letter. Begin to Save Something. 1 Tr. TnendiriEr money tho young man . should always ask himself "Do I need this?" Ho should not ask, "Do I want thisf Wants are, too often, tho chil dren of children. Thero is nothing manly in givi ag away to desires and jong gov erned by them. To do bo is to becomo tho skive of morbid appetite. How many men, in the evening of their days i i i i. can thnt. thev havo earned millions of dollars, even, and yet havo not managed to savo themselves a fcinglo hundred. It i3 this which embitters tho close of a life. Tho man sees that ho has been less frugal than ho should havo been, not only but wasteful, ills nara carneu iuo kj h3 1 slipped out of his hands in driblets hr rnnld parn it. Ho has HSJ MASU u spent it for useless things, no has even damared his health in indulgences which' wero poisonous to his physical ana mental systems. Vhcn a young man secures employment ho should firmly resolve "out of my earnings allneccs sary expenses shall bo paid. Tho re mainder I will rigidly reserve for futuro uses in tho same direction."
