and bad lie not been a person of great

given up the woik ’n despair. < >nc day
as he walked along in a very surly mood
alin another attempt to gel the old
lady to quarrel about the pigs getting
into the yaid, he met an old woman, a
neighbor of the old couple. As Mr,
{)■ vil and the neighbor were vety par*
'ticular friends, they must needs stop on
the Way to chat a tittle.

“HtiVe you not noticed.” Said the bag
‘that your husband has a hunch of long, ’

“Yes ”
“These arc the Cause of trouble, chd

“If you say so I will,” replied the
credulous old lady.
Soon after this the hag started for
home, aud made it convenient to meet
Air. U. on the way. Much the same
tuik in relation to his domestic happiness
passed between them as did between her
and the Wotnau.
Old Mr. If. was was very ranch as

so,"between llie two, she wint to wnik

After a while, the old woman died, 1
