" Hois ; lie Is posi tively brilliant , lint if ho worn my boy 1 think 1 could polish him still more. Al nil events 1 should Iry. Frcddio came inlolho parlor soon after my arrival , his face shining from n recent - cent vigorous application of soap nnd water , and his yellow luilr plastered down to his head so that every bump was plainly visible. "You don' ! remember Mr. Johnson , ilo youv" suiil his father , taking the young cub on his knee. "Yep , " was tlio reply. "What's that ? " said Ferguson rcproy- inglv. "Yep , " repeated the boy , with n sur prised look. "Haven't 1 told you to always say yes , sir ? " "Ycssir. " "That's bolter. So yon remember Mr. Johnson , ohY It's nearly three years Mtico Freddie saw you last , ndded Fer guson , turning to mo. "It's astonishing w hat u memory that boy has. What do you remember about Mr. Johnson , Fred- ilie-V" ho inquired. "I remember , " replied Freddie , ingen iously , "that his liair was white at the roots and black at the ends , and mar .said she guessed he hadn't dyed it this week. " Tins remark produced : i feeljng of con straint , so to speak , and Freddie was ban ished from the parlor. I did not see him again until I wont to dinner. Ferguson asked a blessing. As soon as he had finished Frcddio burst out with : "L'ar , what's the reason you never do that'cept when wo have comp'ny\ Ferguson made some facetious remark , but I saw a light in his eye which told mo Unit thorn was trouble ahead for 1 reddle , and 1 rejoiced in secret. "Mar , " said Freddie presently , "don't you wish Aunt Maria was hero ? " "Why , Freddie ? " said his mother , with : i fond smile. " 'Cause ' you said the other day that you wished she an' Mr. Johnson could meet , 'cause he'd bo such n gooil catch for her , an' it was about her last chance , ' " an' "Frederick ! " shouted Ferguson. "Why , Freddie Ferguson ! " exclaimed his mother. The subject was quickly changed. T felt thai it would bo wise to hond Fred die nway from the tnblii. but Ferguson ilureil .l-'uto , and permitted him to re- main. "Climnio another piece of cake ! " said Freddie , presently. "You have had three already , " said his mother , gently. "I know 1 have , fin' I want smother. " "Hut " "I wanl another piece of cake ! " "What can vou possibly want of more cake ? " "Wantor eat H , of course. Whal'd ycr s'poso 1 wanted tor do with it put wheels tin it un' use it for a wagon ? " It struck mo that tliis would ho a gooil lime lo remove Freddie and inlllcl cor poral punishment upon him , but Mrs. Ferguson thought iliU'erently. She re garded Freddio' ' * remarks as laucrhable. "It's astonishing what a fund of humor Unit boy has got , " she said , as she gave him the biggest plet'ii of cake on llio plalu , " 1 ID'S always milking quaint remarks like that. 1'ar anil I think he'll become n great humorist. " "Air. Johnson/ ' said Freddie , ns ho rose from the table , "cim 1 feel of your di'mun pin ? " "What a singular request. " said Mrs. Ferguson. "Hut iileaso let him do it if you don't mind , Air. Johnson , llo's got Mime funny idea in his head and wo shall sen what it in. " We did. After rubbing the diamond several times with his forelinger ( iuoi- ilontty coloring my immaculate shirtfront - front with currant jolly ) , he sniil wonder- "rt\Vhy. it nin't stleky al nil. " "No , Freddie , of course not , " suiii Fer guson smilingly. "Why should it bo sticky ? Diamonds are not stloky. " "No , I s'pos'o not , " saiu Freddie , "but I heard mar say that she thought il wasn't a di'mun al all , bul only paste , an' 1 knew that paste" Hut at this point Freddie was hustled cult of thu room by his father , and in a low moments my heart wns gladened by the sound of dismal yulls in the distance , I saw no more of 1-reddiu that oyenlng. 1 do not intend lo dine ut Ferguson's ' again at present.

Chicago Herald : "I was in Now York one day last week , " said a railroad acent who looks after the immigration business for u trunk line , "and while at Castle ( inrdcn saw u verv ludicrous incident. Hanging on the wall was a map of the United btates containing on the margin the advertisement of a linn of land and Immigration agents. 1'rinted on ho map over the location of several rn cities , was u red Hag , designated to draw attention to the various points at which the tiriu's branch otllces wore located. Chldiigo was thus marked , and so were Kansas City , Omaha , St. Paul und Den ver. While I was standing there an Kng- lishmun cumo up , looked at the man and inmediately became grimily excited. " ' 'Kio'i , a go , " ho exclaimed , nulling out his railroad ticket. 'Hi'in booked for Jloma'a , and on the map thecr Hi scq hit is a Ha'inrohist town. Hi'll never go to n Hanarchin place. 1 It'll go bnck to llingland lirst , so thecr ! Cawn't I change mn booking , y' know ? ' "And that wild Knglishmnn took on at n great rate , and rushed around n kinir everybody he sawif tlio'Hanarchists' had complete possession of Omaha , and if it was safe for a traveller to set foot In town , and if heotild have to pass' through Chicago to get to Omaha , and if there wasn't some way in wliioh he could have his 'booHlng' changed , and so on. When at last he was calmed suf ficiently to tell the ofliccrs the cause of Ids excitement , it was learned that he had taken the red Hags on the map to mean that the cities so marked were in the power of the anarchists.

When the case came up for trial the defendant said ho could prove an alibi. In order to do this ho had brought "Ills' girl , " a buxom lass ot twenty-two. She took the stand and sworn that he sat up with her from 7 o'clock in the eve ning until daylight next morning. "People can very easily bo mistaken , " observed the plaintiff's lawyer. "I don't care -1 know he was there , " she replied. "What did you talk about ? . ' "hove1 she promptly answered. "What time did the old folks go to bed ? " "I give Vm the wink about ten. " Q"Suro he was there at midnight , are you ? " "Yes .sir.1 ! "Why are you sure ?

" "As to how , sire ? " "Why.

I do .so waul to hear this great lecturer. " "Tell the truth , I have but ono ticket , " was the reply , as he went out thn door , "and I don't think I can allonl to buy " another. Aly husband and I had been married for .several years. Hefore the niarriugo he had been unusually attentive , even for a lover. : uid if another ircntlenian spoke lo mo ho was jealous , When there was a lecture or concert anywhere ho al ways took mo. If 1 was invited to n party he was only too glad to attend me. Hut now "parties' are a bonhe says , "ho can't think why women wish lo go to them. " Then ho was nil nllection. Now , lie acts as if he would lower his dignity to show his love for me or my children , and if I olVor him a kiss or a caress he is al most certain to refuse me. 1 cannot com plain that ho neglects his more obvious duties , lie gives me plenty of money for dress , lives well , anil is even talking of liujing a new house. Hut ho seems to think that n woman has no business with anything but housekeeping , nnd never change of scene or other recreation. "What's the USD of n woman , " ho says , "going about ? Home is tlie place for her. " It inny be so , but after : -hard day's work I often fool its it'a _ walk in the fresh air or : i visit to u neighbor's would bo a real blessing. I said to him thu other evening us he was going out again : "Won't you stay at home , Hurry , to oblige mo. .lust this once ; I'm so lonely ? " "Lonely ? " was bis answer. "How can you bo lonely with tinchildivn ? ' ' "But they are abed. And recollect , I POP nobody , day in and day out. Can't you ilo it lo please mo , for this once ? " 1 could hardly speak ; it was as much as I could do to keep the tears from coming , his conduct seemed so cruel. "The fact , ' he replied , "I'm de.ad with working all day , and must go out to get brighteni'd up a little. Yon women noyer make allowance lor a man. " And lie went out quite crossly. Never make allowance ! If the husband is won led with business , and 1 do not doubt it , is not a wife worried with housekeeping ? Arc the servants and children mul hickncbs no trouble ? And is a woman dill'orcntly constituted from a man , so that tin ; recreation which one. considers indispensable tor hinisult is ol no use to the other ? "How your complevion has gouoi" .said my husband lo mi * the other day. "It seems tj mo that in this climate a woman is old at ! ! ( ) . " Aga n tin * tears came into my eye1- , Harry did not mean to ho unkind ; In ; was only thoughtless. ! Hut why had 1 lost m\ complexion ? Can a woman live for over in rooms heated by hot air , never going out , except on some errand , and then hurrying lioinn as soon as the erranii is done , without losing her complexion ? Is it tlio climate or her mode of life that makes her ohl before her time * 11 was on my tongue to say these things , but 1 rufrained. i have learned that "silence is golden. " "How I wish 1 had something to read , " I said yesterday. " 1 think if I had u new book now and then , the evenings when you are out. llairy.wonld not be bolong. " "Hooks cost too much money in times like these , " answered my husband. " 1 should ihink your sowing would amuse you enough. To get bread for his family and lay by n little for n rainy day is as much as u prudent man can do nowa days. " And as he spoke ho lit his cigar and went out. Will men never understand women ? Will they never see their own selfishness in its true light ? These thoughts rose to my mind as I relleeted with a sigh that u lilho of the money which Harry spent on cigars would buy all tl.o now books 1 wished. Yol Harry doc.s nol mean to bo unkind. Ho saw his mother trailed as ho treats mo , mid lie thinks 1 have no right lo complain. Perhaps I have not. Hut , O ! how much happier 1 would bo if things wuro ditlerent. Are women only machines to sow , darn , sweep , dust , bake bread , take earn of children , and keep house ? Have they no need of recreation ? No higher nature that is starved by u life like mine ?

Youth's Companion : It ib amusing and sometimes disgusting to hear some women talk of 'relatives or friends as not being "conientil. ' ' A wife who makes such a dechrrtlion about her Iwbnnd shows not only | > oor taste , but a lack of discretion and good sense that is ominous for the future. ' The degree of congenial ity is never tncrunscd by such unwifely Indiscrotiont. ' " .My husband's a real good man , n provider - vider , stiddy a * , a clock , and all thntl but in some thiitgshu ain't a lilt congenial , " said a garruloui woman to n friend. "Unon what do you disagrees" was asked. "Well , mfcstly about our reading. " "Why , how HO ? " "Well , the fact is I'm too literary for John. ' ' ' ' "Indeed ! " " \'es , John ain't a bit literary. Now 1 always did run to Ilterarynus5. 1 just be lieve 1 could write. " "Did you ever try ? " "Ye ; I've wrote two or three poems. They rhyme right straight through. But John he ju t laughs at me. He says a woman with four children nnd only a poor carpenter for n husband ain't got time to write poetry or be literary. There isn't the least streak of literary in that man. Now , I'm the greatest reader. " "Does > our hu.sband dislike books ? " "Oh , hollkc.s to read the papers and says ho thinks It's his duty as n voter to keep informed in politics ; and ho reads about the labor question , and he's got some old histories and a book call-d "Maenuluy's K says' that bo's forever reading. Bui when it comes to being literary John ain't there.1 " do * " "What you read "O , 1 read every scrap of poetry in the newspapers I can pick up , and I often have four noels on hand at one time. I'm reading one now called "Millieent the Mad , Mad Maid of the Mist , " and take four splendid story papers and bor row two mote. 1 s'poso iiiebbe I'd bo happier if 1 wasn't so literary , but I can't hclpit. " "And , of course , John can't appreciate my tastes and my kind of reading. He ain't literary enough for it. Ando wo ain't a bit congenial. And 1 sometimes think it would of been better for John if he'd married a woman less literary than me. It's dreadful lo bo so literary when your husband ain't a bit that way. " Yes dreadful for the husband. A TmklsliVililinjj. . llrooklyn Maga/.iue : All weddings in Turkey , among Turks , whether in prov inces or cities , arc arranged by old women and are complicated , tedious nlVairs. The bridegroom holds fete sev eral days al his home for his men friends , and Hie prospective br'ulo at her home with her young friends girls , ot course. Tin1 night before the wedding the mar ried women of her aciiiiaintainci ; come and cat tin- married woman's dinner with her. which consists principally , as Sam Weller would say , of a " .swarry" of leg of mutton and trimmings. Tinnpt day the bride is taken lo thu bridcgroo'ii's bouse in a sedan chair , with a retinue of slave- carrying her wedding presents on trays ou their heads , covered with col- oro'd tarlatiu. Tlio procession is some times quite. ' imposing . The bride's fe- maio relatives are u'so ' there in the new harem nntilinigditfall , and they retire to their homes ; . .leavingHie bride sitting on a sort ol tlirone./veiled. Thn bridegroom is then admitted , and he is to throw him- sell nl tlio bride's feet and offer her bis veddinir present of some huiid-ome jew- elrv aud bog her to raise her veil and strike him blindi by her beauty. Some times lie is sCrupk dumb by her ugliness , lor he never looks on her lace until alter HIP wedding. When 11 habo is born in any house there is great rejoicing if it bo n boy , less if a. girl , The wife is proud for u while , but' Turkish wonirm , are not good mothers. They are too cliild-liko themselves. When a girl is born tb a sulian they lire seven gim.s ; when a boy , twenty-one. Thu boys die eaily ; the girls are more ant to live This is supposed to bo a divine interposi tion ol I'rovideiu-e to prevent too many claimants to the throne. Habies are dressed liuo mummies in swaddling clothes for six months ; then the boys .in put in trousers , .sometimes in generals' or colonels'uniform , regularly made. AN hen the sultan takes a wife no cere mony is considered necessary more than to pre.-eiit his bride The new sultan in herits all the widows and slaves of his predecessor , and every year ot his reign , at the feast of the Kumay.au , he receives a now 'mo from his mother and takes any other girl or woman to his harem who happens to strike his fancy. Slaves who become mothers aie instantly promoted to tin ) rank of sultana. Sk months be fore the. feast of Kuimr/au thn valido snl- tana orders that all the young candidates bu brought to her , and she chooses fifteen and sometimes moi'o of tlio lot These are immedmtlv nut under diet and train ing arid at the beginning ol tlio great feast she again chooses , and this time the choice is Imal. At the evening ot the ap pointed day the sultan , upon retiring , iiiids his lien * bride standing nude , with folded hands and lowered c.\es , at the foot of Ins bed. After ho has retired she must lilt the bed-clothes at tlio fool ' .nil crawl into bed in that way as i < .sign of subjection. ( iirls arrive at legal majority at nine years of ace. and are frequently married at ten. Children of twelve and thirteen are often seen with babies of their own. They are old at twenty-five.

Chicago Trillium : Archbishop Kyan , in carrying out tin ) decrees of the recent , council in Hultimoru , has enjoined the priests in this dioccso from performing marriage ceremonies in the evening , lie Insists thai weddings in church must take place with n nuptial mass , or , failing in Unit , as early in tlm afternoon as possible. Under none but the most urgent circum stances will u imirriago ceremony bo al lowed to take place after biiiidown. A prominent Catholic prelate , in bpuaking of tliis decree , said it was tlio spirit of the church to surround the nuptial cere mony with all Iho impressiveness and sanctity po siblo. 'In tlio Catholic church , " he Faii | , "matrimony is one of the sacrimpiits , and should only be ro- cei\ oil wilh the. , most intense devotion The collide to bu married should bo in a state of gniQu-rfhnt is , they should have made n gener.nl confession and bo prepared - pared to receive the holy communion at the nuptial mass , and thus begin their now lives with u feeling that they will bo strengthened bv tlio sacraments of the church in the many trials they may have to contend wjth , Thu archbishop desires to increase the happiness of the mariied btato , and lie f ej that this can bo done bv impressing the members of hU floek ol the importance of thn stop Ihoy are taking , and by .compelling them to observe - serve the forms proscribed by the church for the innrrliiga ceremony.
