HARDWICK i One evening, at a stag dinner I gave at my house to a party of friends. when the coffee was brought cn ai.,l cigars were passed I noticed t hat one of my guests. Major Tisdale. dtI not help himself from the box otTerel him. "Don't you smoke, major?" I askedl. "No," he replied, I dpi not." lie was the only man in the ra,,m who did not smoke, and the others looked at him with saIme curioslt. i 1 was about to turn the subject %a h:1' he gave us his reasons for not doing le so in the following story: I was brought up by an un-le wh i was very rich-my parents Ioth die, when I was very young-and since he had no children of his own it was understood that I was to be his heir My life was not a very pleasant one. for persons whose experience in bring ing up their own offspring is nil are at a great disadvantage In bringing up the offspring of others. A child is 11 utterly devoid of reason and a sense of his duties toward a parent. In deed, It is remarkable that parents 1! should tolerate their own children. This I think is the reason why adop tions are not usually satisfactory. When I was ten years old a boy 4 taught me to smoke dried leaves. One day my uncle caught me at this and for the first time spoke to me with great harshness. It was evident that he had a great prejudice against to bacco. He told me that if he ever 4 caught me smoking again he would send me a way. I passed a couple of months after graduation at my uncle's home. As a young soldier I was very attractive to him, and he petted me without stint I had no desire, especially after my experience at West Point, to offend him by the use of tobacco, which I did not use In any form. IIe seemed charmed to have me with him and spent a great deal of the time talking to me about his estate, explaining his projects for Its Increase, telling me what property he Intended to improve and what to dispose of. He was getting old, he said, and he thought I would better resign and be come accustomed to the care of the property that would fall upon me at his death. I had no wish to leave the army to live under the tutelage of an opinionated old man, so I told him that having been educated by the gov ernment I didn't consider It honorable to resign my commission at once, but in three years, if he still maintained the same disposition toward me, I would accede to his wish. He com mended me very highly for my sense of honor and assented to my remain ing as I was. A couple of years after that I fell In love with the lady who became my : wife. It was then for the first time that I realized the benefit that would accrue to me in my uncle's fortune. He had never said anything to me on the subject of marriage, but I knew that I should consult him before the matter was settled. I deferred it, how ever, to a convenient season, for my uncle had remained a bachelor all his life, and I knew him to be a woman hater. If be should take the same view for me I might be put in the position of giving up the girl I loved or a fortune. I could not in honor do the first, and If I married the fortune would mean much to me. As lock would have it. the old rascal beg pardon. gentlemen, you will under I stand better at the end of my story why I speak so disrespectfully of the man who had educated me and was to leave me his estate. As I was saying, my uncle rendered it unnecessary for me to say anything to him about my love affair by very conveniently being taken ill and showing every evidence that his end was near. I was tele graphed for to come at once and be fore going told my love of my passion for her, of my expected inheritance, and invited her to share It with me wbhen I got it This could not be long. She returned my affection and accepted me, When I reached my uncle it was not expected that he would live through the night He rallied, however, and I the next day was slightly better. His physician remained at the house most C of the time, especially at night, and when he was not with his patient he and I sat in the library below, keeping each other company. He was a very 1 good fellow, and I grew fond of him. He liked his toddy, in which I joined e him, but when it came to smoking he was obliged to smoke alone. My ouncle lingered between life and death for several weeks. No one could tell just when he would drop away. The night he died the doctor and 1 were keeping ourselves up by an occa sional potation. The doctor pulled two dgars from his pocket and, offering me one, said: "Smoke, He's too far gone to know anything about It" I accepted his proposition, lighted the cigar and smoked just enough of it to easse me to feel bad. Then a nurse ealled me to my onle. I ran upstatirs, bad be was telling me about some improvements he advised making in a eertaln building that was to be mine. when he smelled smoke on me. GOentlemen. my expected fortune went the way of the cigar 1 had accept ed from the doctor-in smoke. My un cle lived fortyelght hours longer and altered his will. leaving all be possessed to charity. A Freak of Nature. A tree that is a freak of nature is the Asiatic star tree. It grows sixty to eighty feet tail, and for a height of Sabout forty feet the trunk is wbolly Sbare. From that point there spring a number of tangled limbe, which shoot out clusters of long pointed leaves, and I these, grouped together, emit at night a phosphorescent light SA Mistake.
