There's a prominent Judge living In the
rural diatrlcts of Virginia, where bathtubs
are not to be found In every borne, who was
the proud possessor of mch a luxury, which
he permitted no one else to use. One day
ho found that some one hud been using his
tub, and, reaching the conclusion that It
could be none ether than Mary, his housu
maid, he summoned her to uppear before
him and charged her with having trans
gressed his unwritten law.
Mary confeases her fault, and the Judge,
after enjoining her to sin no more In this
manner, as freely forgave her. Observing
that the maid seemed somewhat hurt at the
"calling down" which he bad thus given
her, the Judge, by way of softening bis
rebuke, aald:
"It la aot that I object to your using my
tub, Mary, but X hate u Hiiiik u.at j a

you wouldn't do before my face." Rich
