Tlie di'.y 1 ovi rln ai'd a voung^ Ir.dy s.'iy at a ]iii:nie that 1 looki-d' like a section of a railroad bridge' was the-sadde.st day of my life. |  To overcome as far as po^siljl'e j the gro'fi-sque a¡ipi/arancc ol' my excessive lack of llesh'I always wear "heavy weight" goods, and no tailor ever ■ secures my patronagp who does not thoroughly understand the art of "padding."  1 confess to a certain degree of vanity regarding my personal ap-i pearance, and When L made the j blissftd discovery that I was about to bo married I gave no little thought to the appearance I sliould present on an occasion when, more than at any other time in niy life, BO many persons would be gazing upon me.  I read books on etiquette to know if, under any circumstances, a man might properly be mai-ried with his ov.ercoat and two suits of clothes on, but, to my distress, found that this was allowable only in cases of elopement, and as my wife had set her heart on a church wedding, with everybody in fidl dress, I gradually forced myself into the conviction that the overcoat and one suit'of clothes would have to be discarded.  A man of my "build" looks positively and irredeemably awAd in the conventional, clinging, black, light weight garqients of which rnost wedding suits are made. When I see such a man tlius arrayed I am.convinced that there is really something in the DaTwinian theory.  But, as it had to be so, t was married in the garments best calculated to make my attenuation glaringly apparent. My friends were kind, however, and said nothing to cast a cloud on my happiness—all but my sister Nell. She owed mo a grudge dating back to the.days of my childhood, and, as she put her arms around my neck and kissed, me, she whispered in my ear:  "Oh, Tom, you look awfully shoe stringy in that suit."  A separation of four years made it possible for me to speak to Nell when we met again, but I sometimes fear that we can never bo the dear friends we once were.  After our marriage my wife and I went immediately to a far distant western city, iii which we made our home. I was too poor to throw or give away my detested wedding garments, but I soon reduced them to a state of great shabbiness by .wearing them under my overcoat when about my wojk as a reporter on-a daily paper. Wc were not society people, and I had no idea that I "would ever again need a suit of that kind. One day when I went home to dinner wy wife said : . "Sec here, Tom, it's a shariie for you to be wearing that handrome $75 suit out in this way. Don't you suppose you could sell it and got some 'more suitable and cheaper gartnents for every day ■wear?"  I here take- oceiision to say that  my wife is a very economical as well as a pVaetical and sensible woiTian. . Sometimes I think she knows more than I know.  I told her that I wotdd think about her fjuggestion. A wise man will never seem to come into immediate accord, with the opinions of his wife. It is always l)est to hang ,back and pretend that you have a little sense of your own, even though you know that you have not.  At 12 o'clock that night, as I .vas closing my desk at the oflice ■preparatory to going home, ■the nanaging editor of my paper said :  "Seeliere, Di.xon; that report you vrote of the trouble up at the Ihristabel niinejwas uncommonly tvell done, and will be talked about to-morrow. I thiidc I can get your salary raised on the strength of it. In the meantime, here's a little of something to show you that the pai)er appreciates good work."  As he spoke he handed mo a crisp, new $50 bill. He was rich; the paper was making a great deal of money, and I felt that 1 was not being paid as iiuich as I earned, so 1 took the money without any hesitation. Fifty dollar bills were very scarce at our house, and as I hurried home through tlie dark streets 1 fancied to myself my wife's pride and pleasure when 1, should tell her of my good fortune on the morrow.  For i)erfect secinity 1 folded and refolded the bill until it was ai)0ut an inch square, and tucked it down into the watch pocket of my pantaloons, a pocket-'1 had never used before, and one that few men, clothed in their right minds, eyer used at, all.  r.efore morning I was awakened by a great lire in a distant part of Uie cil\\ and, hastily donning an old suit that I kejit for just such occasions, I hurried out tt) get a good irport of the fire, which hap-pcncd to beof uiuisual n.iagnitude. \Vv gut out an "exlr.'i" and it was late in the afternoon when 1 reachid hoine again. .\s 1 entered tiio house my wife held uji a ten iin;l !t five ddlar bill, and said i.-iuniphantly :  '•There,jiiy dear, you have that inui'li to p.'iy on a suit that will do yo'.i some good. You don't know what a n)anager you've married. While' you were away to-day 1 sponged, brushed and gasolined your wedding'suit Until it looked almost as good as new; and I -eftrried it down to ohl Isaacs, the second hand and misfit man, and got $15 tor it."  "Mary Jane!" I said coldly, and it Wits the first time I has ever called by her full nftrne; and she turned as pale as I was. "Did you, Mary Jane Dixon, look carefully in all the pockets of that suit?"  "\Vhy, yes, Tom," she said, reassured.  "In all of them?" I asked again.  '•Ves, in all I'm certain."  '•In that niiserable, wretched, deceptive, useless thing in the trousers called a watch -pocket?"  "Why—no—Toifn, I didn't—I—  I"— ■ , ' '  She burst into tears, and sat' down with her apron over her face. I stalked.into another room, and banged the door very hard. I opened it softly in less than three minutes, and-^well, we made it all up again, although we were still very sober over our loss.  I\Iy wife said she \ioidd do without a great many things that she never did do without, and I tried to take an optimistic view of the affair, and said meekly and untruthfully that I supposed it was all for thov-best. To make matters a little worse, I drew from my pocket a large, square, elegant looking envelope, and said to my wife.  "And here's an invitation to tlie much talked of Smythe-Durant wedding ne.xt week, and I really would like to go. I've known Helen Durant all her life, and I like her, if I do despise that snob of a George Smythe she is going to marry."  "I'm so sorry," said my wife contritely, "and here we might have gone as well as not if I hadn't sold your only bhu:k suit. It did look real nice, nnd quite as good as new, I dare say, by lamp light. I could have worn my wedding dress, and we could have made a very decent appearance. Its to bad !"  She began crying again. I said 1 would go away and never ceme back again if, she didn't stop. Suddenly she jumped to her feet and said excitedly :  "Why, Tom 1 how foolish we are ! It isn't-at all likely that old Isaacs, has sold the suit yet, and itmay^be that he hasn't looked in the pockets. Let us hurry right down to his store and buy it back. Wo can tell him it was a mistake, as it truly was. Let us hurry right off'!" ,,  AVe reached the uninviting stqre of B, {siiacs,,dealer in feecond hand apd misfit garment.^, in about fifteen mimiteSf but the suit w.as gon'e! ' ' ' .  "I haf Just" sold it no more as  dree minutes and a ha}hif ago. It vas not vor,th much. I makes no money on dot? suit. It vood not vit a man dot vay.8 anv ding at all."  I raced angerh' out of the store.' "Well," I said, as we walked moodily homeward, "I'm not the only hundred pound six footer in. this town. That's evident. I'll keep my eye on the other living skeletons, and if I find the one who has my trousers I'll Iiave them back again by fair means or foul."  I kept a sharp lookout for lean men during the next week, and was gratified to discover that there were fifteen or twenty in the.cJty as lean as inyself, but all of tjiiem were saved the luimiliation of being informed by uks that they were wearing my clothes, a huniiliation that might not, pei'haps, have been lessened by tlu; olfcr of twenty-five that I intended making- for tlieii" return.  As the evcTiing for the wedding before referred to drew near our desire to attend it increased, and at last I said to my wife :  "Well, 1 j\ist cannot afiord to get nie another full dri'ss suit that I ' might iiot need again tor ten years. ! And I'll stiiy at home forever and wear rags and tags before I'll wear a hired suit. Hut we can, at least, go to the church. y, is to bo a church wedding, you know, and I ciin wear any ordinary business suit and overcoat to the chundi—if 1 don't find the man who has my clothes."  But I did not find him, and we went early down to the church, that we might be first there, and our lack of festive garments less noticeable.  "If it wasn't for Helen I wotddtj't go at'all," 1 said as W(i sat in the church, awaiting tlu> coming oftla; bridal party. "I cannot- endure Smythe. lie thinks hiiusrlf vastly superior to me, and makes ine sick with his talk about fashions and 'best sjocicty' and all that. It' makes nu; so mad to be told, as I often am, that he looks like me.. [ know I'm long and lank, but  ne  'Sii-sh-sh!" whisjiered my wife;  flourishing, hispered in reply.  of  they're eoujing.'

"No, my dear," I said, as we .walked homeward after tlie ceremony, "I am nut mistaken. Those wi.'re my clothes. I would know tho.se trousers if i saw them on a Hottentot. Didn't you detect a faint odor of gasoline as he went by our [)ew? 'To think, my dear, that I cannot go to the most fashionable wedding of the season because the bridegroom hits on my clothes! But if I had gone he'd had to have stayed at home, wouldn't he? Lean as we arp we couldn't both have worn those"—;—  "How perfectly ridiculous you are," interrupted Mary Jane. "1 don't feel at all sure that they were your clothes."  "And if they were, how are we going to get tlnit $50 bill out of that pocket?"  We didn't get it. But they were niy clothes. I gave old Isaacs a dollar for telling me that Jie had sold the suit to Hniythe, who ¡had sworn Isaac.s to secrec}' on the subject. He looked heart broken and turned gn.'cn when I told him about that $50 bill.—"L. J. II." in Detroit Free Press.  CALIFORNIA.  HER  PRODirCTS AND NATUJflAi AD-VANT.VGE3.

It says :  California, from Oregon |0n tlie north to Mexico or Lower California on the south, has a length from northwest to southeast of 770 .miles; and from Nevada and Arizona .on the east to the Pacific ocean on Úie west, au average width'of HoO miles, making'a tota-i area-of 15.S,8t)0 square miles ; hen«»; it is the second lurg^'Bt State in the Union.  It was acquired by conqviest, at>tì later by purchase from Mexico in 1847, and was admitted into the Union as a State on the 9th.day of September, 1850.  In 1880 it had a population of. 8G-1,G94, and at the present time itti population will exceed 1,500,000, almost doul>le what it was in 1.880.  In 1880 California ranked firht among the States in per capii,i wealth, ninth in aggregate weaJth, twenty-fourth in population, twtíltli in manufacturing importance, and fifteenth in agricultural products.
