On inquiring to boy to thib new str Manga ment of my Oiler half she mildly informed a dear i had read in the newspaper the other Day that we should never sleep without having the windows open a a that vie breathed tit so much air and then breathed it Back again and out and Back and that love we must always keep the windows now i am no Saint. It done to run in our family. And if any of the Brothers of the Church of which i am an unworthy Momber. Had heard the expressions i used As i waded through the Snow to that window i am sure have been reported at the next conference. troubles had just begun. Mrs.--, n 1 tall amour la by i Lenity ii Arewood Leech. A god bless me and my wife ,. Brot Bor Tom and his wife just us four and no Moro. i am a married Man. I Trust i make tho announcement with proper meekness. I ought to be a very Happy Man but i ainu to. I am naturally a modest Man but i done to expect you to believe it. I met permit Sizer Dow at a quilting scrape and she married to in three months. I am told that i married her but i shall insist to my dying any that i was in Happy ignorance of my Fato until the people commenced to Call me or. Dow. No i mean to Call tier mrs.-, my name. Why ainu to i Happy ? i will try and Tell you. I done to expect you to credit a word i say my a wife Nevor does and no More should you but i have no conscientious scruples against swearing if that will be needed to give Force to my narrative or tale. In the first place my wife loves me. Startling As this fact May appear to the world i nevertheless put it Forth As truth if it is an original idea i do not hesitate to claim the originality. Now to be severely logical. Why does the fast of her love make me unhappy i will Tell Yogi. She takes the newspapers. And lest you May not even see my inferences i will add she clips out All the receipts for health and by Thunder t makes me take Mem. Do you Seo ? but i will not overwhelm you with evidences of my dear Wifod a infatuation it is at this time resuming the form of positive madness but shall select a few to Nave you consider my unfortunate condition. But done to pity Mel done to 1 pity would drive me mad and Quot each frail fib roof Mylrain would Sond Forth my thoughts All wild and tho first occasion i had to notice my dear wife a peculiarity was in mid Winter about Throe weeks after our nuptials i am reminded to say a nuptials a As i consider it Rathor though we have compromised on whole win Dow hoisting she watches to narrowly and no sooner do i go from one room to the other than pop into the room i have left and up goes the window. I have mildly suggested to her often that the neighbors seeing this state of affairs May put a false construction on her actions in this respect a construction highly injurious to her husband. But i assure you when i mention this she flouts me and i am dumb. When my wife takes up a newspaper i tre Niblo. I have but slightly Agu Eish symptoms when Quot she is going Over the locals marriages and deaths but when she gets through these and fastens a glance upon the a a housekeeping a a a useful a a a recipes a and a extracts from journals of health a i know i am a goner. I Ratcli her narrowly at these times and if she looks up and fastens Herey upon me i know she is getting ready for some new Experiment and my chills Are in Nils taxable and decided. Ono Day she surprised me by insisting that i should put on a pair of Woolen , meekly that she knew i never wore Woolen they made my feet sore. A never mind a was tho reply. A i just read in a newspaper that they will prevent you from taking cold.�?�. rebelled for awhile but she socked me a and now i am lame and have corns and chilblains and bunions but i do not take cold certainly As often As Formo Ray which i attribute. To cold water. wife having Road that water was a Sovereign remedy for a mail the ills a Etc for some time went under such Hydro Pathic treatment that l am sure if Shower Baths could have accomplished it that. Should have had water on the Brivins Len go. A morning at four a cold Bath this. I called my crack Bath because the window was water and very sol Dom cold meat for breakfast. Bathe my head and feet at dinner time in cold water eat a Little Barley soup cold. Four of clock p. Is. After my return from tie office Shower Bali Light headed. Tea cold. Nine of clock p. M., wet sheets immense friction. Bed after a few cold applications locally. wife happened to get hold of an a Riclo on a physical education one Day. Woe is 1110 i was put through a course of tho severest gymnastic sprouts. First Day practice three hours Wych Twenty tvo a Hind dumb Bells ended by straining a Leader in my fore Arm and crushing my foot with a a Bell a which i inadvertently dropped. After the sickness attendant upon this was Over i was thought seasoned enough to Trust with a Indian i rather liked the a clubs a i thought Thoy were Jolly and would make a Good average strike at a Rowdy a head held them out crooked hold them out straight balanced them on my Chin whirled them around Over my head and fancied i would Cut a very respectable figure As chief. Of the tribe of no Karl How you do its. Gave the War cry and tho double whirl,.and right hand club fell full Force and broke my nose. Day no. 2�? physical education give it up yet but whilst my nose was Healing my wife got a springing Lioard Iron rings and boxing gloves surreptitiously conveyed to the attic and surprised me with the same when i was convalescent. Tried the springing Board till i got sprung in the Knees and then chopped it up for a cloths horse. Got fast in the Iron rings and Hung with my tights on before the attic window head downward crying a murder a i sprained my ankle. And broke a blood vessel on this occasion. As for the boxing gloves i used to fancy i had some proficiency in tho a Manly Art a self defence a and really prided myself upon my muscle but my dear wife was. Anxious that i should eclipse All competitors in our social ring and therefore called in Hert to Brothers to practice with to. Jabez and increase Dow weighed two Hundred and thirty four and. Two Hundred and Twenty four pounds respectively and As Strong As any live ignoramuses of their stature can be. The result of. That Little a a practice with tho gloves to me was to Black eyes. so fished watch one Fino Linen shirt much torn Little Finger of tho left hand bitten off by increase in the real fight which afterwards occurred. A of broken Over Acain. pounds human hair which i have since had a sofa Pillow made of and part of Jabez a false Teeth. It is needless to say that my wife a two Brothers Aro forbidden my House also i suppose it unnecessary to state that i do not Box any More and that my a physical education has been entirely neglected since that eventful evening. I Havo tried every moans in my Power to Stop newspapers from coming to the House you Are aware that i live a Short distance in the country a for As sure As my wife finds a new recipe she is bound to try its Efficacy on myself. A Short time ago i complained of a chapped face and i awoke in the night with a suffocating sensation and discovered to iat Good woman bonding Over to pouring on a concoction of lard White Wax sperm Cotti and Olive Oil which she had read about in the papers. About two months ago i bribed tho Carrier to discontinue our paper he did so for four Days but venal like his tribe to commenced serving it after that time on receiving a larger bribe from my wife. The first two Days after its continuance there was nothing new in fact the Charleston news had orow Dod out All tho clippings household articles and All and i prayed most fervently they would stay crowded out. But alas i on tie third Day my wife looked up Over her paper and a Smilo of exultation beamed on her countenance. A my love 1�?� said my dear a replied i. We always address oath Othor with the extras Evon Whon alone. A just listen. You know you Aro thin a Rathor sulkily a that i was aware plumpness was not one of my Virtues but that i thought taunts Beamo _ a ooh 1 just listen.

A week but i had a trere Lentas for breakfast varied with a arabic a for supper until i caved in and a five Pound canister was bought. Behold me a Well Man a being fed on a a pop three times a Day. I got tired of a Prev Elena arabic a in a week in its Plain state and then i had the a Breve Lentas in custards pies Rolls. A arabic a in puddings and tarts and heard of nothing but a nutrition a a digestive organs a and a poverty of blood and muscle a at breakfast. Dinner and Tea. And now for tho results. The first week i was swelling visibly Lead to undo sundry buckles and straps about my tii a . Ead to Cut the Boot legs to allow my calves room a very comfortable a bight to my wife third week had to fines and costs for assault on my neighbor jobs who intimated to me. A that drops Cal people were not supposed to have Good fourth , had to lie in bed Whilo my tailor was altering All my clothes and getting me up some new ones with the Patent India rubber expansion seams. Fifth week weighed two Hundred and seven pounds apothecary a weight and found that remonstrances with my wife did no to reduce to any. I Havo taken to drinking surreptitious vinegar but the fact increases i cannot sit by the fire without the Greaso melts out of me in a liquid Stream. I have already ruined All my clothes and my credit with my tailor is very Low. I have been approached within the last two Days by some of my most intimate Fried us who darkly hint at a a tapping me. Remonstrance is useless with my wife. I am miserable. I shall do something desperate yet4 of clock . I have done it. In to shot the nows Carrier and thrown the a arabic a out of tho window. As i write wife in violent Lister and Claret not to mention sundry kinds of delicious entre Menis did undoubtedly contribute to Lessen the distance Between l Hon you tooth to late hours hot rooms and carte All most jigs try included in the catalogue of fashionable pleasures and our acquaintance at first Only slight has now ripened into permanent Friendship. But i really must not allow my feelings to divert me from the scientific purpose for which i have visited you to night. Don t be afraid 1 i shall Lay aside awl and pincers and vary the Experiment by injecting a few drops of molten Lead Between the flesh and the Bone. Ila what an enviable yell 1 your lungs i can obscure you my Good Friend Aro in. Perfectly healthy state and Muy last you for the next Twenty years if you done to Force to to get into your stomach. By the Way what a silly proverb that is against pushing things to an extremity it is with the out remixes that i always make a Point of dealing in the first instance and i take it that very few people would wish me to depart from the practice. What is that you say ? you wish that i would go to Ulp Twil 9 a that you Are both rude and unreasonable a right motives. Suby was going abroad. She had then Promise if her work was Well done that she should go and Bee her Friend Molly Ward. I was fastening her apron and brushing her hair and giving her All needful exhortations to Good behaviour. A now i Hope Susy a said i a that you will behave prettily. Be a modest quiet Little girl. Children should be seen and not heard you know. And above All do be amiable and obliging in your play with a ooh you need t give me so Many charges Mother a exclaimed Susy a a in a always Good when i go .

Woe to the individual upon whom gout once sets his Mark for Thero is no kind of fumigant on or exorcism powerful enough to drive Hima wily Holcli icum is to Trio gout what incense was to Jupiter. Lib May snuff it up and rather like it than otherwise but it is no sure propitiation. There is a grim sport Veness about gout which reminds us forcibly of the Man nor in which a tomcat plays with a after a Hovore clawing a Respito of some duration is allowed to tho victim who begins to entertain a Hopo that it May be possible to escape from the enemy. Vain delusion a with a sudden bound the monster recaptures its prc3r, and a despairing squeak of anguish supersedes tie faint cheer of exultation. Do not deceive yourself. There is no emancipation for you on this Side of. The grave and the Odds Are ten to one that you Are in for gout is your family you say nothing More Likely if you ale willing to give credit to the doctors and we wish you All Joy of the Comfort you i re Able to extract from that aristocratic consider Ron. Your Grandfather and your father worked very hard for it and got it As their recompense and the terms upon which you have stood for Many years in regard to your own stomach justify your succession to the b Rohri interview with Monsieur Root. But gout is a Greatt Leal More Wakeful than conscience. Once evoke that sprightly Demon and you can nei Lior hocus or banish to has the catalogue of your transgressions by heart and never treats you Toa tweak of the pincers without favouring you with an explanation of tho torment. In the silent watches of the night he comes to your bedside and bids you be of Good cheer because he i just going to favor you with an interesting anatomical demonstration.,. A a that pain which you Feol in tho joint of your great toe a quoth Monsieur gout a a has you flatter yourself a Ocoine Rathor less since right of clock when you took your last dose of Colchicum. Quite a mistake my Good sir 1 tho member is if anything Moro swollen and inflamed than before. Observe now i shall take tho Liberty of inserting this Little awl. Just by the Way a probe. Aha Litmak Isyou wince. A a very Good sigh that however since it proves that Thero is no ground for apprehending immediate mortification. Now do you know Why it is that your too is so singularly Sensitivo ? ill Tell you. You remember three years ago ordering a Batch of Burgundy previous to that time you had been in very Good health for you had plenty of occupation and Little Leisure for gluttony or wine Bobbing your Means Wero limited and during tho holidays you took a sufficiency of pedestrian exercise really in those Days i never expected to have tho pleasure of making your acquaintance. I cons Dorod you just tho kind of fellow Likely to become an ornament of tho Alpine club. But your estimable Uncle old Jones the stockbroker bless you 1 knew him very Well indeed Many a time i have chatted to him when to was roaring like an aggravated Bullook your old Uncle Jones i say died and loft you his Money. You Aro not going to sleep Are you Well i Call that Rathor Unhan some treatment considering that i Havo Takou tho pains to come Here and Bear you company i a slight touch of tho pincers May however aha. All s right again you Are As Lively As a snapping Turtle i whereabouts was i ? of i Recomb or old Jones left you his Money and you determined to take your Oase. No Ono could blame you for that what s tho use of tagging to make More Whon you Are already in Possession of a Cool four thousand a year and May indulge in a shooting Box and Hunters but you Nevor could Mako up a Rose Octal bag on tho moors and on horse boat you Wero anything but a Ducrow. You preferred living in Towie took Chambers in thou Albany gave Nice Little Recherche dinners and Laid in that Stock of Burgundy to which i Havo already alluded. It was of a Fine Vintage Strong and Howdy and made tho blood Ciro Ulato in tho coins Liko lightning. To it i attribute tho Honor of our first introduction though port am Here As you Well know in consequence of your own indiscretions. Perhaps you Colli willingly dispose with my company but my Deais sir you have no kind of Choice in the matter. If a Man will ran into debt he. Must expect to have an execution in his House and a Bailiff in his Hall Lin d certain i am that you have received from me More attention than any fashionable debtor could expect from a wilderness of bailiffs. As for going to the Devil must decline for private reasons giving any explanation of tho terms on which i stand with that mysterious individual but Arey a Quito sure that Thore snot some slight confusion As to the identity in your ideas whatever May be my ultimate destination you for some years past have undoubtedly been walking with your face turned in the direction of pandemonium. You done to Lievero Well lion ask your conscience. It has slept Long enough to be in a tolerably Active condition of you have the courage to awaken it and if you wish to get rid of. or rather to be indifferent to my presence that is tho vey Bost Stop you can adept for no pjs of mine Are equal to the which conscience is ready to inflict you grown and intimate your readiness to postpone the inv. A table reckoning Well then having finish de my investigation of the. Toe which i shall sinoply touch up with a kind of caustic of which i am the inventor let us pass to the knee joint whore i see a hopeful swelling and to the Knuckles which unless i am grossly mistaken will exhibit certain curious Petri factious in tho pleasant form of is by spa Psia with due attention to Temporo Neo exorcise and Early hours you May set dyspepsia at do Fumieo. Neglect Ono of and Ynn Rolf Omi u. Hardly you can escape.-, and above All things keep this in mind that no other disease or affection of tho body is so stealthily or insidious Quot As dyspepsia. If. The first few instances of carelessness or transgression Wero to be visited pains and penalties that afflict the patient when 110 malady has become Clemmic few men would be so insane or so obstinately reckless As to postpone the work of reformation. But the earlier symptoms Are rarely of an alarming kind. The appetite a not sons Ihly affected though tho indigestion is impaired and the complaint seems for a time to be limited to flatulence and heartburn. Such unpleasant sensations however can be easily removed. Essence of Ginger and fluid magnesia Seldom fail to give Relief and the patient flashers himself that there is no ground for apprehension. But tho symptoms do not they re Cir with greater frequency and the ant Dotal doses though increased Are found to have lost their Efficacy. The stomach has now become More seriously deranged. 4�h kinds of food generate acid and in this stage the patient usually has recourse to the carbonates of soda or Potash which in their turn give a temporary Relief though without in any Way arresting the disorder. By this time dyspepsia like an insidious burp ont has fairly folded the victim within its embrace and is squeezing him at its Leisure. Everything he eats disagrees with him acid seems to undergo some wondrous transformation. That which was served up at table As Haggis seems converted two hours after turds into a Ball of knotted town a Mutton chop becomes a fiery crab rending the Interior with its claws a and every Rice pudding has tho intolerable Etron Tery to become Revivi fied As a hedgehog. After that come nausea and vomiting. You derive no Benefit from the food you Swallow. From twelve Stone weight you dwindle Down to ten. Your countenance becomes ghastly your eyes hollow and you totter prematurely on your pins. The Mere notion of exorcise becomes i tasteful. You feel As if you Lead no strength for anything. You Are pensive Moody and irritable. Your mind Losos its elasticity and Power and when you sit Down to composo instead of Manly Mattor you produce nothing but the Deariest of Magazine. A difficult question any Ono toll Why when eve was made out of one of Adana s ribs a hired girl was not Mado at the same time to wait Ripon Hor to can easy because Adam never Camo whining to eve with Aholo in his stocking to be darned a Button to to sewed on or a Glove to be mended right away Quick now because he never read tho newspaper until the Sun got Down behind tho Palm tree and then stretched himself yawning out a a ainu to supper most Cady my dear a not to. Ii made the fire and Hung Over tho Tea Kettle himself Well venture and pulled the radishes everything he ought to. To milked tho rows and fed the chickens and looked after the pigs himself. To never brought a half dozen friends to dinner Whon eve had not anything in the Larder and asparagus season was Over. He never stayed out until eleven of clock at a Ward meeting Hur Rahing for tho out and out candidate and then scolding because poor dear eve was Bitting up and crying inside the Gates. To to sure lie acted Rathor cow Wardly about apply gathering Timo but then that Dosena to depreciate his general Hopf ulness about tho Garden. Honover played billiards nor drove fast horses nor choked eve with Cigar smoke. To never Dino at his club Whilo solitary Evo was rocking Little. Caine Sorado at Home. In Short to did no to think Sho was created specially for tho of waiting on him. And Wasny to under the impression that it disgraced a Man to lighten his wife is Earos a Little. That a the reason that eve did not need a hired girl in a Weli was tin reason that Nono of Hor fair Roscon dents did. A by a a Tommy my son what is Longitude ? a a a Olthos Lino �?� a a Provo it my a a because it Strot Choa from pole to Polo. Can be Good. A a Why of course Mother Whon i want to a and you Are not Good always at a ooh Well it Isnit so easy to to Good at Home. Besides it Isnit so much that a a very honest confession Susy certainly but not a very satisfactory one Why Isnit it so easy a. A a Why folks look at me and watch me and Praise to when i go a a and Why Isnit it As much better to be Good at Homo ? Cusp a said Susy Ond there she stopped to think. T that a a very common stopping place i find for Little children when they Are asked Why about any matter. Why they can to explain their reasons or done to want to take the trouble to do it its a great convenience to but i. Wanted Moro than that so i waited and Susy after a Whilo got her thought put into shape. A a a Cusp a said she a a at Homo nobody sees me excepting those that in a used to every Day and i done to care so much about them you ,. I had got so far in my Story when the door of the Library opened and a pair of Bright eyes Wero in a moment glancing Over my shoulder. A ooh writing a Story a exclaimed my Little Mary. A quota Sletmo read it a �?oyes.�?�,a now the Story Wasny to about Mary at All that is i did no to mean i for her. You understand i suppose that when people write stories if they say i they done to always mean themselves and if Thoy say my Little go i it does no to mean really their own child. Spine writers done to have any Little girls at All but they Tell the Story in that or Ujj. Because it is a More a simple and easy Way of telling it. But you Woi ild certainly have thought from the looks of Mary a face that it was really a revelation of her own history. Ilor Cheeks great red and a Little displeased pucker gathered Anond her lips As Sho tossed her curls out of the Way and read on. A now Mother Quot at last she cried then Sho Road a Little further and a a that a too bad was added to Hor sentence and finally As Sho. Laid Down the last Sheet she finished up her exclamation by saying a i done to think its fair for you to be telling tales about the a what makes you Tomk its about you Mary did you a d i Ever have such a talk together a.,. A a not a but tho in be had just such thoughts ands Mohow you always know what i think and then you fix it out in such a Way when you want to make a _ i Lief smiling. A a guilty conscience a said i a a needs no accuser. I wonder if Cousin Nattie would take the Story to herself As you have. X guess for the fun of it Iii go and see.�?�. A. So i put the paper in my pocket and my Sun Bonnet on my Lead a and walked across the common Down the Hill through the Cool covered Bridge to tho. Little Brown cottage where Mary a Cousin lived. Hattie. Was to my thinking an a uncommon child. Her Mother was a very pious woman and her father was a very pious Man a a Deacon in the Church. Before Hattie was six years old she could say the commandments and tho cat Cli ism and scores of in mrs arid psalms and chapters a in the Bible. And then Sho waa always so precise and particular in her conduct so Good that i Nad often held her up As a Model to Mary and her Little Way uru Brothers. A if my children wore Only As Good As Ila tie i should be Happy a i often i found the Little girl sitting on alow Bench in tho front door Oliero it was Cool and Shady for it was a lint Summers Day sowing and singing away As Busy As a Bee and As merry. Mother has gone out to prayer meeting said she a and in mall alone. Wont you s sit Down aunt i Lezzie ?. A and you re sewing just As industriously As if Sho Wero at Home Quot i said taking a chair. A a what a Good Little you Are a a Why that a nothing special Good aun Tio a a a a you re always Good Arris to you a Why no a said she a a i often do wrong things. I suppose in a just Liko All other Little girls part Good and part a a Woll in be been writing a Story for tho Little folks and i should Liko to know your opinion about it.�?�. A a of that a Nice do read so i read it. I did no to take but a minute or two and she got so interested that Sho dropped a her work. I waited to hear what Sho would say. Sho seemed to hesitate a Little and then looking up in my Faco Sho asked a a aunt i Lezzie did Mother toll you that about to a a a a Why Hattie a i exclaimed a a what could Mako you think so a a a its almost exactly Liko a talk i had with Mother Only a Little while ago Onty you Havone to got half of it Down. Mother Folt real bad about it but i did no to think it was so wicked As Sho said it was. But now i do think it was wrong. It seems worse Whon its All written a a Woll no Hattie i did no to mean it for you at All. But in be Como to tho conclusion that children Are vory much a Iko. I to seen one other Little girl to Day who thought the Story was about Hor. Now i moan to go in not door and Seo what the children Thore think about next door was a very Large beaut tui White House standing in tho midst of a splendid Garden and shaded by two great spreading Elm Trees. In tho House lived two prot to Little Sisters Ann Eliza and Eliza Ann. Thoy Wero twins Aud that was tho reason their names were so much alike. Thoy did no to look Aliko at All As twins often do but they seemed to to exactly the Samo in disposition and Oha Ractor her was sure to say amen to. I fou Nuthem at Home and their Mother and after chatting awhile i said. A a a a see Here Little girls do you want to listen to a wee bit of a Story Quot a you going to Send it to tho paper eagerly asked Ann Eliza. A a i done to know i done to know a a a i Haven to made up my mind yet.�?�. Then i read it and you ought to Nave seen those Little creatures look at a each other and shake their head so knowingly As i went on. I could see it All although my eyes were on the paper for they Wero right Down on tho floor at my feet and i would no to help thinking that conscience was swinging there too. A a Thore Quot said i As i finished a Sthats. A to Najida fact True every word of it. But i done to know what to do. I done to want to lose credit with my Little friends and perhaps they will think i have made it All up or stretched it very much. Did you Ever Seo a Little girl that could act such a deceitful part a you miss1 b a a Why i you Are nol that deceitful do form mini i Malm Iii a is Lucca Eliza Ann. Indeed to scorn to to what a a everybody acts better abroad than Thoy do at Homo. In a sure that a just tho Way inc do a said Ann a lift. And i know Sarah Ellis docs too a added Eliza Ann for she is the crus Sest old Patch at Home you Ever saw and when she comes hero she s just As pleasant As you can ,. I put my paper in my pocket and walked Home. �?~.there8 very much of a much Ossa about children a As Uncle Azariah says thought i.

The goods of Breckinridge were sold in one week to Aid in satisfying some of tho owner s debts and those of senator Douglas in another week to sol to his estate. The senator who owns the Middle tenement Lias vacated. The House and the whole Row has been rented to the government As a Hospital.
