The Sptlktits Trouble.
"Don't put up jour napkin yet,
James," said Mrs. typilkins in a half
whisper, taking advantage of the efforts
of the Rev. Sparrowhawk to swallow a
chicken bone, and giving her husband a
sly kick under the table.
"What's the matter? Why shouldn't
I put up my napkin? Haven't seen a
napkin before in a week. Have we got
pie—pie, sweet pie, God bless our pie!"
"We have ice creaqp for dessert" said
Mrs. Spilkins, looking daggers at him.
"Let me give you some of the ice cream,
Mr. Sparrowhawk."
"So this is ice cream," said Spilkins,
reflectively, exploring his saucer.
"Why didn't you put raisins in it,
Mrs. Spilkins, and call it rice pudding
or rub a bone on the freezer, and call it
flat soup? Did you make this yourself,
Mrs. Spilkins, or is it the handiwork of
the Almighty?"
"1 purchased it, sir. at the Baptist
church festival. If you had done your du
ty you would have known all about it."
"That settles it, Mrs. Spilkins I
won't say anything against it. If I
don't believe in religious ice cream I
dare say it won't do anybody any harm.
Did you make this yourself, Mr. Spai
"What a question that is," said Mrs.
Spilkins. "As if Mr. Sparrowhawk
could have time for such thing, after
writing those dear, delightful discour
ces. We have a new cook, Mr. Sparrow'
hawk, and it is diffieult to get anything
in Cooperstown you must excuse our
"No apologies, Mrs. Spilkins," said
Mr. Spilkins, cheerfully. "Itis the best
dinner we have had in a month."
There was an awkward silence. The
minister went away but the silence
continued. When another minister is
invited to dinner by Mrs. Spilkins, you
may be sure that Spilkins is tuning bis
harp on the golden shore.
It will probably be a year before Ber
tlioldi's statue will be ready for unveil
ing. Upon its completion the statue
will be of a bright, gold-like color, such
as that of a new penny. The metal is
pure copper, and not bronze, so that it
will have a strong reddish, instead of a
vellowish, tinge. The elements will,
however, in a year or two, cause the
statue to take on its permanent color—
a dark, reddish brown.—Ex.
It is a disgrace to America that the
pedestal has not been completed, nor
the money raised. The French minister
refused to be present at the reception of
the statue.
The Portland Inter-Ocean says this
of a quack doctor: "We reiterate what
we have previously stated, that his be
ing allowed to practice is a crime against
territory, a crime against high heaven,
and a crime against the professson. It
is a method that assumes the level of
die common assassin, and were he to
attempt to practice in eastern states he
he would soon find a berth behind the
bars. We propose to wage war upjn
this impostor and blackmailer until the
fruits of our labors shall be rewarded by
opening the eyes of the public to the
true role of this diabolical fraud."
