au Invitation a few days ago to travel
several miles into the country for the

Haines, the proprietor of the local
livery stable. lie called on Bill and
mentioned the fact that a young man
and a fair maiden were waiting far
from the madding throng to be joined
in the holy bonds of wedlock, and Bill,
being a man of keen preception, re
plied: "I allow you'd like to get a horse and
buggy to take you out there?"
"I had an Idea that it would be a
fine thing If you could help me in that
way. I'll tell you what I'll do. Wil
liam. If you will let me have one of

with a horse and buggy, and be drove
away. When he got back, covered
with dust and considerably fatigued,
he climbed out of the buggy and.
handing the reins to BUI Haines, said:
"William. I thank you five hundred

with me." Bill answered.
"I am doing so. When I had pro
nounced them man and wife the groom
