I'm nick of hearing you cackle. I ttll you I don't approve of thnt clul), mid I don't waut you to be long to it. I wont have you going down there and exposing family secrets, and letting all the women around town know what a ridiculous old chuekle-heud I've got for a wife " "Mr. Wilkins, 111" "And undertaking to preach women's rights to a lot of pigoon-tocd, fluffy old tjii-la, each of whom has been trying all her life to get a hattut voqmi on 6omo singlo man or other, but never found nny one who bad such very bud tabto as to have her. I say I wou't hava it It's perfectly ridiculous for a woman liko you, who has about us mucf ij,-a nbout writing nn essay as n spoiled oyster has of thorough-bass, to undertako to read a paper on 'Woman's Mission.' In my opinion, women had better be mission aries at home, aud try to convert victuals into dinners than begoin gronnd rending documents like thnt you've beon writing, about three miles long." "Mr. "Wilkins, that's no such thing, and" "Tlireo miles long, ou n subject you don't know anything at all nbout I'd like to know what sense there is in cov ering three or four million sheets of pnper with your ideas, even if you had any. I supposo you'll be wauting me next to biro a druy to haul your manu script round to tho club room; but I give yon fair waning, I ain't a-going to lu it, not if I know mvstii', I think I do." "You know I don't want " "You don't expect those old women to set it out while you read the whole of that, do you ? Why, you must bo crazy"! You 8ccui to forget that human beings don'toften livo more than threescore aud ton years, and it'll take you that long to get half through, and they n-slceping nil tho time. You'd better take around a demijohn of Hoffmau's anotlyuo, and be done with it." "Wilkins, you talk liko a" "I'd just liko to know what you waut to vote for, anyhow. In my opinion, you'd better de-voto your attention to your family. A pretty looking specta cle you'll mako, going to the polls and getting into plug musses, and having your eyes blackod nnd your noso blood ied, aud your ridiculous bonnet smashod over your eyos, and making stump speeches. Not but what you'll do well on the speech; vou've got an extra gift. Unit way." "Wilkins, you must be crazy !"' "And wandering around the streets in processions, carrying a torch light, and coming home greasy r.bont four in the morning, smelling of coal oil. By Georgo ! I say I wont hnvo it. If you haven't nny respect for yourself, you shall have lor your children aud mo. You shall, by George !" "You know I don't intend to " "I expect nothing else but you'll bo wanting to be boss of this shanty, nnd bo putting on airs, and trying to wear the trousers. But you shan't wear mine. If you go fooling around with my dry goods, you'll got yourself into trouble; mind, I tell yon. I don't want yon strad dling about in my clothes, let me toll you. I don't meddlo with yourjietticoats, and one thing nud another, do I ? And I give you notice, I want you to let my things ulono." "But, "Wilk " "Let them alone, and be decent. You needn't go around bragging, and think ing I'm proud of you. I'm mortified half to death about your outrageous be havior. You're enough to aggravate a plaster of Paris angel, you are. Why don't you try to be geutell, and go down and practise on the front door-steps with a bar of soap and a scrubbing-brush, in stead of howling around this town about woman's rights, and making a perfect absurd jackass of yourself? Why don't you be of some use in tho world, like Smith's wifo. who had her leg cut off last week by accident, but instead of sitting dowu and yelping and bellowing over it, she gave it to Smith to havu knife-handles and buttons made out of the bono 'I Why don't you do like her, and try to live for some purpose, hey ? ' "What an awful story.'Vv'ilk " "I expect nothing else but youH be sporting a high hat next, and trying to part your hair behind; what "you've got left of it, at least." "Wilkins, I'll scratch'' "But I don't care bow much bigger fool you make of yourself, only you're just polluting tho minds of my offspring, and teaching them to walk in the road to ruin. It's too outrageous for any thing. There's Breckonridge Augustus eas been and saved up and bonght a high hat, and he staggers around under it, looking more like some old clothes pin with an iron pot hung on it, than like the child of respectablo parents. There's more bat than there is boy, and the first tiling you know hell shut up in it, like a telescope, and very likely smoth er to death, and all alone of your ridic ulous torn foolory and neglect of your own offspring." "Wilkins, that ia ridiculous." "I say it's shameful that you should set such nn example to your children, and stuff such ideas into Holofernes Montgomery's head, that he's doing his all-fired best to grow a moustacho, until it's drawing all tho strength out of his scalp, and his head's getting bald, and he has rubbed his upper bp with forc ing salve until it's swelled up nbout the size of a five cent loaf of bread, so that his nose looks like a bole in bis face, and the boy's constitution is undermined for life. It's perfectly outrageous." "You know that ain't so, Mr. Wilk" "And I've made up ray mind not to stand it any longer, for you've even spoiled Mary Jane, so that she tried to shave herself with my razor, and it slipp ed and would have cut ber innocent throat if vou hadn't taken the edge off hacking at your abominable corns, nnd bunions, nud so on. Anil ho's got so stuck np that she has a boy to carry her books to school for her, and the little scoundrel thinks ho is in love witli her, and be spends his missionary money buying apples for ber, nud robs the poor, inoffensive heathen in a distaut land, and prepares bimsslf for a felon's grave; and all because you neglect your children and join clubs, aud associate with strong-minded old bngs, and read essays a million miles long, and want to vote, and behave yourself liko tho regu lar slab-sided, long-necked, scraggy old heifer that you are. I say" "Take that, now, and if you come back bore nguiu I'll be tho death of you !" said Mrs. Wilkins, as a dull thud was heard, evidently proceeding from the contact of Wilkins's physical frame with tho floor. In fact, Mrs. Wilkins bad kicked him oat of bed. - But they made it up again, for I heard Wilkins) nbusing his wifo n the morning for starching his pocket handkerchief so that he rubbed all the skin off of his nose. Just John's Luck. John was mado rich in spite of him. self at Long Branch, and this was the way it was done; , Just as I was the hungriest, Longfol low and Harry Bassettweie brought out and they went round tho corner like two Colts revolvers. All the nice young men stood up and bowed and scraped, and held up one finger, as if they wero nhiTi!ing an omnibus. They all yolled, ' hundred to eighty on Harry Bassett." They all appeared to be so very polite, that I held up my finger too, and bowed back to nil of thorn. I never saw such a polite lot of young men before. Yon would have thought I was tho Grand Duko Alexis. I kept up tho bowing game just as long as they did, and pretty-soon the raco was over, nnd I con fess I was agreeably surprised to see about four hundred young men file up and each ono chuck a $100 bill into my lap. Then I thought the lot of young men just tho nicest lot of young men I had ever met. There I sat with $10, 000 in my lap, and much to my aston ishment, I found out that all the time I was pointing my finger and bowing back to them, darned if I wasut taking every darned bet that was mado, and darned if I knew it. I only bad eight dollars in ray pocket, nnd if I bnd lost, I'd slept in a oyster bed that night sure. -4 A Littlo Story. I hear a stonr which will do to tell. It is about an Irishman, of course. Pat had worked two years upon tho Central Pacifiic road, and applied to Ogdcii for a pass over it home. "I can't givo you a pass," said tho superintendent. "You have no ground to claim if' "And haven't I worked two years on yer road ?" said Pat. "Yes; but haven't we paid you for it?" "Sure, yer honor, you have, but after working two years ou it ye ought to let mo go homo free." "I cannot do that, sir. Why, look at the case in its truo light. Suppose you had work for a farmer two years, and he bad paid you every cent due you. Could you ask him to harness up his team and take you a long distance for nothing?" "Oh, no, your honor," said Pat;' "but if he had his team already bitched up, nnd had to go anyway, as yours does, he would let mo rido, I know ho would." Pat got liis pass. Stop the Interest. Daniel Webster once dined with an old Boston merchant and whon they came to the wine, a dusty old bottle was carefully decanted by Peter and passed to the host. Taking the bottle, be pour ed out Mr. Webster's glass and handed it to him. Then pouring out another for himself, he held it to the light and said: "How do you like it,. Mr Webster?" "I think it a veiy fine specimen of old pert." "Nov, you can't guess what that cost me," said the host. "Surely not," said Webster, "I only know that it's excellent." "Well, now, I con tell you, fori made n careful estimate the other day. Whon I add the interest to the first price. I find that it costs mo just the sum of one dol lar a glass " "Good gracious! vou don't so?" said Mr. Webster, and then draining bis glass hi hastily presented it again with the rcratuk, "Fill ud auain as nuick as vou can, for I want to stop that confounded interest.-' A skeptical young collegian confront ed an old Quaker with tho statement that he did not believe in the Bible. Said tbe Quaker: "Dost thee believe in France ?" "Yes; though I have not seen it, I have seen others who have; besides there is plenty of proof that such a country does exist" "Then thee will not believe anything thee or others have not seen ?" "No; to be sure I won't." "Did thee ever see thy own brains ?" "No." "Ever see anybody that did ?" "No." "Does thco believe thee has any ?" fly Fits nud Starts. Spasmodic efforts amount to little or nothing. It is steady application that accomplishes. One raaj bo easily tired up to do something, and as suddenly cooled off. Tho team of men or horses that will pull together and pull stead ily, will do tho work. But those who are always beginning and never finish ing, havo more of the spasmodic than the persevering. Moral: Teach your children to do one thing at a time, and to finibh what they begin. Stcalius, Lying and Slandering. Essayists havo written much ou.Uie.se subjects, to provo which is the greater vice. But the question is easily settled. Of these three enormous vices stealing by far is tho most excusable. Tho thief, it is true, degrees himself to tho lowest level, nnd becomes tho scorn and con tempt of mankind. II is to put money into his pocket, for which be is too lazy to work. This frailty of his nature, lazi ness, is the excuse for Lis vice, while, if it did not exist, perhaps the vice would not be practised. The thief hates nobody he desires nobody's life ho does not seek to destroy anybody's fair name or reputation. He lias no malice, even when bo is breaking open the money drawer. And while on this subject, how many various ways of stealing are there, besides robbing a hen roost, at which mankind looks with indulgence. The merchant -who givos sLurl veight and measure, steids from his customer. So does the quartermaster or commissary who shaves a triflo off each man's rations. Tho man who sells a diseased or vicious horso does tho same. Nevertheless, the injury which such do to soeioty, com pared with liars nnd slauders, is trifling. Now let us see in what light tho Sa vior regarded these vices comparatively. Ho tells tho poor thief who was crucified with him, "verily this day shalt thou be with me in Paradise" On the contrary, among those whom ho declared it im possible to enter tho Kingdom of Heaven, liars were specially enumerated. If liars are held in such distinction, what will be tho portion of slanderers, who are both liars and dofamera? We may guard against the thief, by using necessarry precautions; and even when we are robbed, we lose what is not irre parable. But how are we to guard against liars and slanderers, who are liko assassins who stab in the dark ? The man who robs annothor of his purse, puts him to temporary inconvenience, or it may bo distress. But ho who robs another of his reputation and character, robs lain of bis nil, nnd if a poor man, of more than life. For, when a man's life is terminated, his toils for existence are no longer necessary. But take away a poor man's character, and you might as well take away his life, and better. No, the slanderer is worse than the murder er, and infinitely more detestable than the thief. A rude breath on n tender (lower will blight nnd destroy it. So tho breath of scandal on a youug, timid and unprotected female, will destroy her, like the flower, which can never revive, but must wither nnd die. What, then, do liars aud murderers deserve of man kind ? In former times, tho thief was branded in the band, or on tho fore head. But the liar and slanderer ohould now be branded on the forehead, that everybody may.soo the mark, nnd avoid him, ns they would a mad dog. - - Drunk. Young man, did you ever stop to think how that word sounds ? Did you ever think what misery and woo you brought upon your friends, when you degraded your mandhood by getting drunk ? How it rings in the ears of a loving wifo ? How it makes the heart of a fond mother bleed ? How it crushes out tho hopes of a doting father, nnd brings reproach and shame upon loving sisters ? Druuk ! see him as he leans against some friend ly house. He stands ready to fall into hell, unconscious as to his approaching fate. The wife, with tearful eyes nnd aching heart, sits nt the window to hear her husbaud's footsteps ; alas, they come not. He is drunk 1 Tho husband, the parent is drank, spondiug his moans of support for liquor, while his family is starving for bread, his children suffer ing for clothing. His friends, one by one, are reluctantly lea viug him to a mis erable fate. A Teutonic Allegory. An old man was toiling through tho burden and heat of tho day, in cultiva ting his field with his own hands, and depositing the promising seed in the fruitful lap of yielding earth. Suddenly there stood before him, under the shade of a huge linden tree, a vision. The old man was struck with amazement. "I am Solomon," spoke the phantom, in a friendly voice. "What aro you do ing here, old man ?" "If you are Solomon," replied tho venerable laborer, "how can you ask this?
