The Woniau who Giggled.
It is a singular fact that some people
find it Very diftictfMl to be serious and
solemn in churches and at funerals, and
at other places and occasions, when propriety
demands a subdued expression of
countenance. Mrs. Milo Stephens, an
Austin lady, is just that kind of a person.
Whenever she attends a funeral,
she gets a giggling fit, and brings
on herself and confusion on
frace Not long' since, accompanied by
her husband, Colonel Milo Stephens,
she attended the last obsequies of a
prominent Texas ofiicial, having solemnly
promised not to emit a single
giggle until she got back home, but she
was hardly in the house of mourning be-'
fore she saw something to excite her
"For heaven's sake, Mirandy, wait
until the funeral is over before you begin
your infernal giggling."
"He! he! he!" giggled Mrs. Stephens.
"Think of something serious. Think
of your uncle, whom Governor Roberts
refused to pardon out of the penitentiary.
The only response was a partially
suppressed giggle, that attracted the
attention of nearly everybody in the
"I hope none of the children will
go near the cistern while we are away,
as I left the trap-door open," whispered
poor Colonel Stephens in despair.
The only response was another suppressed
spasm of laughter. Finally, a
happy thought struck Colonel Stephens.
He whispered in her ear:
"The milliner on Austin avenue told
me to tell you that she could not get
your bonnet trimmed in time for you to
wear it on Sunday."
The look of unutterable woe with
which she responded scared him.

towns and cities. There the life
of the lower classes has its picturesque

blue-bloused peasant working in the
fields must supply his bit of color .to

condemned to town-life would not
suffer about him the sad-colored houses
and sober surroundings which we allow
under our gray skies. What a host of
stored-up pictures crowd into the mind,
as memory fills in the pleasant background
of a poor man s life abroad!
Even the lazy lazzaroni who lounge
through life under Italian skies ask
their alms upon palace-steps, amid the
plash of fountains and the scent of
orange-groves! But what a revolting
contrast presents itself when we think
of a poor man's life at home in Seven

From Rev &N.6RANGER.
Presiding Elder of the St. Albans pjstrlcl .
bT. Albans, Vt., Jan., 20, 1880.
Dr. B. J. Kendall fe Co., Gents: In reply to
your letter I will say that my expeilence with
'Kendall's Spavin Lure' has been very
indeed. Three or Jour years ago I procured
a hottle of your agent, and with it, cured
a horse of lameness caused by a spavin. Last
season my horse became very lame and I
turned him out for a few weeks when he became
better, but when I put him on the road
he grew worse, when f. discovered that a
was forming, I proem ed a bottle of Ken-dell's
Spavin Cure and with less than a bottle
cured hfm so that he is not lame, neither can
the bunch be found. Respectfully yourn.

B.J.Kendall & Co., Gents: In Justice to
you and myself, I think I ought to let you
know that I have removed two bone spavins
with Kendall's Spavin Cure,' one very large
one, don't know how long the spavin had
been there. I have owned the horse eight
months. , It took me foqr months to take the
large one off and two for the small one, I have
used ten bottles. The horse is entirely well,
not at all stiff, and up bunch to be qeen or felt.
This is a wonderful medicine. It is a new t,hing
here, but if it does for all what it has done for
mo Us will bq very great.
Respectfully yoms, Chas. E. Pakkek.
