Representative Msa Sph.
tells an ano dote iliiesat . boy
lute in life a wemau'as sndtite"
about her age may last. LHe ars
that at a time when it wa seIows
that the widow of Preeident Mdfo
son was in such poverty as really
be saoering for the neesisarias o
lilf, a bill for her relief giving es a
pension was Intredued into the
house which be earuestly ehampioon
ed. !He made a telling point in
urging its immediate pnasge by
saying: "Gentlemen, to-day the
lady reaches the veaerable age of
83 years, and it would be a particu
lar graceful thing for this boose to
bonor the day by passing at once
the bill for her relief."
HIt laid such stress upon the Mat
ter and advocated the passage of
the bill no warmly tha it was p~a
ed on that lay. lie felt soa elated
with bie tri-mph, that he decided
to take the news to her himself,
hastte-nd at once to her residence.
-MaIne one, hIowever, had proceeded
trim anal fully rl-pu rted his spseeb
to the lady, who, to his esrprtas,
greeted him by sa l g: *Ob thank
you, Mr. Steprhens, lor getting my
bill throgbh, but you made al ms
take when you said I wass8 today.
I amo not 82. 1 unm only 80 today.
That was a grave mlistake." When
Mr. Stephens repeated this to Mrs.
John J. Crittenden, one of Mrs.
Madison's friends, who had told him
her age, she said: "All the same,
Mr. Stephens has never dared ses
tion a lady's age since, however
much he might hope to mane an
argument in her favor by so doing."

An AraMin L e.d.
There was a huntsman who bout
ed the wild beasts In the desert,
and one day lie entered a cavre in a
monntaninl nid nflllnd ini it a hollw
which was tilled with hioney. Be he
placed omen of that honey io a
water skin which he had witlhia,
then he crnired it upon his shoal
der and convey.id it to the city,
having with him a bound that weas
dear to him. And the huntsean
stoppedu at the shoal of an oilean, to
whom hII- offered the honey for sale;
and the oilllan, ageeng to by it
opened the water.skin and emptied
from it the honey in order to melit.
But there dropped from the skin a
drop of honey, iand a bird pouneed
downl Iuponm it, and the oilman had a
cat, andl it spranp upon the bird;
and the bunteman a dog saw it, anad
sprang upon the oat and killed it;
and the oilman sprang upon the
dog and killed it; and the bnntsmsa
pran-g upon the oilman and killed
hbil; and the oilman was of one
villageand thehuntsman of another,
and the people of there two villags
heard of this event, so they took up
their weapons and roie against each
other it, anger; the two ranks met,
and the swords cward sot to be
brandished about along them until
there died a great multitude, the
number of whom none knowetb but
