to notice the perfect attention of his

"There are really no rules about tak

Environment Affected Law.
Blackstone states that In the Isle

Y UNCLE JOHN
Though she's fickle and contrary, there's a charm in
Janooary, to the feller that's accustomed to her curves. . . .
With her north wind skallyhootin' and her temperature
pirootin' in among a feller's sensitory nerves ! And. when she
fights a duel with the little jag-o-fuel, that's
waitin' out-o'-doors to keep ye warm,—O, it
JANUARY takes a cheerful giver, and an optimistic liver,
to demonstrate old Janooary's charm. . . .
But—when the neighbors gather in defiance
of the weather—to taste the joys of settin' by the fire, there's
an institute of learnin' where the home-fires is a-burnin'—
where patriotism is parent of desire! Then we find in Janoo
ary. not a bandit gaunt an' bleary, but a bosom friend beneath
the wintry vest. . . . Where we find congenial labor, swap
pin' ideas with our neighbor, and adoptin' the conclusion which
is best. . . .
While her breath is mighty searchin' where the naked trees
is lurchin' and there aint no hint of mercy in her grip,—yet the
maple-sap flows sweeter, and the spring shall dawn completer,
at the final crack of Janooary's whip. . . . Then, rally all ye
merry, to the call of Janooary,
—Awake, an' taste the real joys
of life,—No season more en-
trancin' with fiddlin' an' dancin'
-—Brace up, an' get acquainted
with ver wife!

"I used to think she was awful

the kindest creature in the
world. When she bought four
diamond rings and had three
others given to her it seemed
to me she might have given one

them herself. She kept from me
