AUston Granger, and ber •flection ,"was reciprocated. So they were married. Mr. Granger lived in the country, •nd if you want to know what kind of life hi* was just you go and change four-elf into a minister, i anil settle •omewherc just out of a city, with all Ibe inhabitants of which you are more Or less acquainted—eat and evey one whom will consider it an especial luty to come out and take dinner or tea with you a half a dozen times a year, and all of whom will consider it •u insult if your wife don't have three kinds of cake, and fresh milk, eggs and honey on the table. Of course, people Wbo live in the country are expected to have all these in great abundance. Mrs. Granger was a very pleasant, agreeable woman, and tried to have everything smooth and she wu over run with company. A minister, among other thing*, is •xpected to keep a hotel, and keep it in a way our modern landlords dou't very well understand—without money and without price. it must be open night and d&v, and hot meals served at all hours. Nobody flaust be refused admittance. People Who are too low to stop at the tavern, ire sent to the minister s. Tract ped dler*. book peddlers, agents, women's Tights lecturers—everybody in fact, must go to the minister's. Ant! then, if the poor clergyman thinking of his overworked wife, and the consumptive state of his larder. Ventures to hint that his salary is a •mail one, he is piously reminded that Sne t. Paul and St. Peter, and those other fellows of tnat epoch, did not dream of receiving auy salary at all. But whether they kept tavern and en ter) ained all creation upon free cost does not appear. B. Mrs. Granger waaeot a strong woman, •tod having been brought up delicately, h«r burden fell heavily. They were too poor to employ help, and she did all her Work except ber washing. The people who came visiting her never volunteered their assistance about anything. Of course not. It would have been too vu'gar. And most of the ladie* Were invalids—(did you ever notice that those people who go visiting most are OBually out of health?) But we on the present occasion have #|ily to do with the Rev. Asa Drowne •lid wife, and their four children Abel, Priscilla, Rachel Ann and Abasuerus Nicodemus. Our story is about them, and the host of other people who visit ed Mr. & Mrs. Granger shall rest in ob iflurity. The Drownes arrived late one Satur day evening, when Mrs. Granger was almost dead with the headache, having just got rid of three ministers and a col- Ein orteur. Mr. Granger had just finished sermm for the morrow—the doors Were locked and the family about ret ing lur the night. A ring at the door. Mrs. Granger's heart sank—Mr. Granger drew a sigh and went to the d'jor. On the steps were two trunks, as many several bundles—a poodle dog, a fat red-faced man, a woman of the same rtyie, and four children. My dear brother Granger i" cried the man Feizing Mr. Granger's hand, and giving it a heart rending wring. "I am the R'^v. Asa i)rowu—traveling it inerant—and this is my wife and these are my chi'dren. We came at once to jour houpe, because we knew you would be mortally offended if we did not. My wife is A great invalid a dreadful sufferer! Been tick for sever al year*! And I will speak of it now In the beginning, we must nleep where there is a fire! I would not have Eliza Jane sleep away from the fire for a thousand dollars and 1 want your wife to see that the sheets are well aired be fore an open fire, very tine! My wife is nervou? exceedingly nervous she OOuld not sleep a wink in coarse sheets. Linen is best if you have them.'' "I should die before morning if I had to eieep in coarse sheets cried Mrs. Drowne—a stout, fat faced woman of forty-live or fifty—" I camo very near going to my last home about a week tto from sfeening on an unbleached pillow case. They thought I was dead for over two hours!" "Have you a stuffed chair!" exclaim ad Mrs. Drowne, "I can not Bit a mo ment in an uncushioued chaii! And 1 will take a little tea, and a bowl of oy sters, or a piece of mince pie I feel to faint." "And I will trouble you for a cup of ^frffet," said Mr. Drowne—"it will be a Wrt of stay to my stomach till supper is ready. What time will jou have •nppei?" Mrs. Granger retired to the heat of a stove—her temples throbbing to latrstiug—and her heart the least bit rebelling at the influx of these exact ing visitors. "I want some gingerbread and some milk," jelled Abiu, the eldest boy— "J'm half starved! Where's the oup boaidf I'll belp myself." "I want a doughnut," yelled Priscil la, "and if I can't have that rocking ehair that Mr. Granger's sitting in, I don't stay so there." "What a little mean room!" said Nicodemus—"by crackce what's that tliere on the table?" and he flew at a statuette of Psyche—presented to Mr. Granger by a dear friend, who was then dead, and which was vwy highly val ued on that account. "Hello!" cried Nicodemus, "it'sslip pery, hain't it?" and down went Psyche on the floor—caving iu the forehead, and splitting off the largest part of the nose. Mr. Granger sprang up with an ex olamaiion of dismay. "Oh! it's no matter!" said Mrs. Drowne, you can mend it again with some of Spaulding's Glue. I mended a mug with it the other day. I hate them things a standing round on tab lea. They look like dead folics Mrs Granger, seems to roe you dress a little too stylish for the wife of a minister of the gospel! You've got a red ribbon on Jow rour hair, I observe. Now I never al myself to wear red ribbons. I try to make myself as j-lain as possible." "You needn't try very hard 1" said Mrs. Grander to herself. "My wife is a model for a minister's wife." said Mr. Drowne—"would there were more like her. Eliza Jane, my love, you ought to have a bath. Mrs. G.-anger will see to it at once." After a while the Drownes were got off to bed. Such a supper as they had eaten Mrs. Granger drew a long breath in thinking of it. She had never dream ed of such achievements in tne eating line. The next morning everything went wrong. Mr. Drowne's dyspepsia was worse—he must have fresh eggs, and soda crackers, and dry toast, and some cream and honty and coffee. His ap petite was dreadful poor. Mr. Drowne was wretched. She had not slept a wink because there were hen's feathers in the bed. She was i-ure of it—and she never could sleep on hen's feathers! They stuffed her up so! The children amused themselves with cutting paper, and too late Mr. Granger made the discovery that his sermon on which he had spent the previous day, had been converted into paper dolls and horses with any num ber of legs, from two to twenty. "Law sake! don't take on about it!" said Mrs. Drowne. "The littie dears didn't mean to do it! blens'm" Just after dinner, Aunt Peggy Trim, Mrs. Granger's aunt, arrived on a visit. Aunt Peggy was a very determined per son, and she took charge of the kitcwen at once, and sent Mrs. Granger off to church with her husband. The Drownes were not well enough to go they said. Mrs. Drowne read a story, and Mr., Drowne lay on the «ofaand slept. Sud denly Mrs. Drowne missed FaB, the poodle. Good graoioue!" cried she—"where is Fan?" The children looked up from their employment of smearing the pictures of a handsome Polyglot! bible with red ink, and giggled. "What have you done with Fanuit?" queried their mother. "We've had a funeral?" said Abel with a grin. "A funeral!" shrieked Mrs. Drowne, "what do you mean?" "She's in Mrs. Grangers workbox, all buried as nice as anybody in the gar den," said Nicodemus: "Abelpreached the sermon, and Lily and I followed as mourner*! Abel was sexton! Crackee, wasn't it jolly!" Mrs. DrowBe rushed to the garden followed by the whole company, and there sure enough, in Mrs. Granger's dahlia bed, the dog was found! The dahlias were all pulled up by the roots, and lay wilting and dying in the sun, and the dog very much stifled in the work-box, lojked sorry enough as he leaped out with a bound and a howl. The sight was too much for the sensi tive Mrs. Drowne. Bhe threw up her hands, crying out— "Oh! gracious me! I'm dying! Fare well, Asa! and fell back on the ground. "Oh, deai?" cried Mr. Drowne, "she's dead! she's had such spells for the last st ven years! The doctor said she'd die sometime. Help me to carry her iuto the house." Aunt Peggy lent a hand, and the senseless woman was deposited on the sofa. "Shea dead! Alas! she's dead!'' moaned Mr. Drowne. "Get the cam phor, and some hot lemonade, and flannels wrung out of boiling water—" "If she's dead, I guess the sooner she's laid out the better," said Aunt Peggy. "You have got rid of an awful great burden, Brother Drowne you'd ought to '.hank the Lord for it? A wife that's been seven years a dying must be dreadful to get along with! I should have kept a coflin in the nouse all the time. Hand me the ehears, I'll take ner hair of! the first thing! you can nelt it to the barber. It'll make a splendid waterfall for somebody!" The dead woman sprang to her feet and dived at Aunt Peggy. "You'll have my hair off, will ye! You old Jezebel! I'll have your n of! first, .see if 1 don't," and with that she grabbed Aunt Peggy's false front, and peeled hor head quicker than a Oder okee Indian could have done it. Aunt Peggy's dander rose. She seized the broom and iu less time than it takes me to writs it she had driven every Drowne about the premises out of doors. And then she piled thpir baggage out after them. Th£re they sat on their trunks until Deacon Buck ley. of the other church, came along— when they told him their tale of wrong, and he took them home with him. Tht next day he,was so anxious to forward them on their journey that he carried them miles and leftthu'oi at the house of another minister. Of course the aflair made a great deal of scandal at Brookville, but some people were st-naible enough to com mend Aunt Peggy. But Mr. Granger is still keeping a hotel and is well patronized by the traveling public. If you should hap. pi u to pass through Brookville you will save a doiJ.tr or two by stopping all night with Mr. Granger. He wont mind it—ha used to ft. tiLEANIStfg.

James Gordon Bennett's Superstition Mr. and Mrs. John Jacob Astor, of New Yorks have arrived at their sum mer residence, Newport. It is one of the most charming and extensive es tates on the island. Mr. James Gordon Bennett, of the New York Herald, thought seriously at one time of pur chasing the place, but superstition pre vented. There appeared to be a strange fatality with the people who owned the place. Barreda, the Peruvian Minister, built it regardless of expense, and lived to see tiie day when he wanted a dollar. The two succeeding owners became im poverished to some extent. Mr. A. D. Jesup bought the place for #100,000, and in a year more than doubled his money, disposing of it to John Jacob Astor for $201 000. Then Mr. Jesup went to Eu rope, and while at Cheltenham Rtilway Station, in England, took up a London aper, read the account ot President tarfield's assassination, and dropped dead. Friends of Mr. Bennett declare that it was superstition alone that im pelled him to lefuse to purchase the iace. Mr. Astor is making it a more eautiful place every year. She flaa Satisfied.

''Why, that's clear robbery!'* "Madam," replied the druggist, as he pasted on the label, "If I should acci dentally poison your husband to-mor ro«v you would want $500 in cash." "Yes, all of that." "Well, I haven't got but $150, ard am in a hurry to make up the remain der, so that I can put the cash right in your hands without waiting.

Mamma says she saw James take at least five of them. "You little rascal! How dare you tell ms you never took one, and here's only this little one with the grub-eaten side left?"

A Frog With an Appetite* One of the big frogs in Terrell Broth era' tank swallowed a trout six inches long last week. Tne frog waa resting at the surface, and was bothered by the trout, which kept nibbling at his long legs. The frog's good nature finally gave out, and, diving for the speckled teaser, he swollowed him at a gulp. The trout was too long for the frog's ntomach, and the end of its tail protruded from its mouth. Crowds watched the tflorta of the frog to get the trout down. Tne trout-eater waa swollen like a mad dened turkey-gobbler, but he was a* lively a* ever, and jumped in and out of the water as nimbly as if h« wa^ not gorged with a quarter of a pound of trout. He swallowed a perch a year ago and has eaten several Bmall turtlea. The Predicament of a Mohawk Tooth Buffalo Kxpres*. A tall young man went bathing in tho Mohawk river at Schenectady .'&it Sunday with several other Si.bbn.th breakers, iu spite of previous protests against their selection of so conapicu ous a place for their ablutions. While they were in the water a Mr. Van Voast appeared upon the batak and car ried off an armful of their clothing. All of the other bathers, however, had enough apparel l*ft to get home with out undue exposure except the tall young man, whuse only remaining rai ment waa a coilar and a pair of shoes. But as luck would have it, he found near the river an empty barrel, out of which he knocked the heads and into which he stepped, and thus appareled he made his way home across the fields, painfully holding the barrel as be walk ed, but dropping and sinking iuto it whenever anyone appeared iu eight. Before he reached the paternal man sion half the dogs in town had detected his predicament and united to form a howling escort. Sir Henry Verney and Sir Robert Carden aru the oldest members of the Brj^i.ih house of commons, having been burn in 1801. Bass, the brewer, was Inmi #4n 17WJ, and was therefore the oldest member up to the lime of lus resignation. There are now ten com-' moners who are over 80 years old.

Part las the Hair la 'he Wlddle-Ktl qa-tte of the Hat. Berlin Letter in the San Franoucc fhronUle. The average German, especially the younger masculine portion of the com munity, takes great care to have his person—that is, his hair, at least—very neat. In fact, one's previously acquired notions that the ladies have possession of the greater part, if not all. of the world's stock of vanity receivo a very staggering blow when he f-ees how very earful the German young men are to appear at their best on all occasions. But even this personal vanity would not be so bad if their toilets were not made in the public view, for there is some thing distasteful, to Americans at least, in seeing any one, much less a man, calmly taka out a little pocket hair brush and proceed to brush down his hair. Over here, however, such things are universal, and considered to be quite the thing. No matter what the occas ion is or where, th* hair-brush is a constant and much-used companion. On entering the theaters or the music halls every one of the young men goes to his seat, pulls out his little brush and proceeds in the most matter of-fact way to arrange his hair, referring now and then to the small looking-glass on the back of the brush to admire the general effect. Even in the restaurants the same thing is d«ne over the soup. The result is that one sees the smoothest and sleekest ar ranged hair among the younger Ger mans. But the tffdet is spoiled when one has the thing forced upon him at all times, t»nd on all occasions finds himself in a gentleman's dressing room everywhere he goes, just as onn would not think so much of a pretty complex ion, even if one previously knew it were artificial, if he saw the fair pos sessor applying the cosmetic. It is strange how such little things will affect one, but they do and one is often compelled, in spite of himself, to form his opinions from little things. Of course, when one eays "all younger Germans," ho does not mean every* single one of ihem. For there are a few, even among the physically almost perfeci Germans, who wear thtir hair a la ButUlo Bdl. However, these are few in number and effeminate in body and mipd, having a great deal of the esthetic and poetic, in their atures. Their lily white hands and pale faces oflf a striking contrast to th« brawny and ruddy appearance of their more fortunate and manly brothers. One cannot always account for one's preju dices, and I am free to confess that I cannot account for my prt u»! ice against a man who parts his hair in the middle. I have such a prejudice. And the nat ural result is that I find myself preju diced a-ainet a very great majority of the yourg men over here. For nine out of every ten part their hair in the exact, mathematical centers of their craniums and, not content with this, continue the parting cl^ar down the back of their necks as far as the hair reaches, carefully brushing the hair away to each side. The hat with us is used as a covering for the heai, and is not removed ex cept under extraordinary circum stancts, sucti as saluting lady, entering a room, and the like. One would not think of raising his bat to his intimate gentlemen friends every time hp meets theni on the *»reet. But the Germans take itasa ereat breach of etiquette, if not a decided personal insult, if you pats them with simply "Good morn lcg," or "How are yon?" You mwst raise your iiat and make a decidedly low bow. This would be a little in convenient, but nothing worse, if you were only acquainted with a few gen tlemen. But when one walks down the »-treet and meet# forty or fifty gen tlemen in the course of an hour's stroll, and is compelled to go through the *aine hat-raising formula to each and every one of them, the thing becomes a little monotonous. This same ttlusivenees pervades all classes of society, and one sees old men and boys saluting each other in the same manner. But one can see even more touching fcights ttian this if he haunts tne railroad stations and watches the departure* and arrivals. In Americ.i kissing of friends and ac quaintances is left to be monopolized almost entirely by ladies but over here tbe men take their share of the good thing—if good thing it may be called— and kiss and hug each other ou occa sion in a way that is truly affecting.

I., Tuesday morning, started ont yesterday to follow to the grave the remains of hia uld friend, "Filly Fields," formerly known as the "steel man." Murray went by the horae cars. A ftupid conductor put him down at the wrong place, and in order to connect with the funeral party he was obliged to travel a long distance on foot, which included, among other disagreeable features, a tramp through a cornfield in tne midst of a drenching rain. After the interment Jimmy still kept in the background, for, although the black mouse under each of his eyes gave him no trouble, be didn't think that they constituted just the right kind of mourning to be seea at a funeral. Before taking the cars back to this city Jimmy paid a hasty visit to a neighboring house of refreshment to get something to counteract the cold he got in walking through the wet cornfield. After taking his something Jimmy crossed over to the lunch coun ter and ordered a sandwich and a cup of coffee. While doing this th£ rest of the funeral party came up, and enter ing the same hostelry proceeded to give their orders. Jimmy had taken just one bite at the sandwich and a aip at the coffee, whan the partner of the "boss" stepped ap and said: "See here, young fellow, do you pe Song to the rest of the barty!" Jimmy stopped munching for a mo ment, and then said: "Why do you ask such a question?'' "Veil, I vonta to know who's going to pay tor dot sondviches und dot oof fee, dot's all." "I believe I ordered it, and stippoee I will be responsible for it," said Jim my, who was in no mood to stand any non-'ense. "Veil, you don't got sassy in my blace," und dot's all rot I told you," re torted the partner threateningly. Jimmy finistied his frugal repast leis urely, and stepping up to the counter put down two ten cent pieces, saying at the same time: "If I had the right change I would only pay you five cants for that cup of coffee, and that's more than it's worth." "You would pay me dot ten cents,«r else you got into some troubles, und don't you forgot dot," waa the partner's reply. "I suppose if I'd kicked about the price you'd have taken it out of my hide?" said the champion. "Dond talk gnssinesd in mein place if you dond want some troubles.
