Yet the parsimony of some men s natures so cramps the generous impulses of their arts that they clutch to their immense wealth and die in the unmanly struggle to hold on to it. Thus dying they often i Glide into the other world Mihono Rcd a swept for j and in regretted. One of the Best anecdotes of Lorenz Dow has i believe never been in print. In a Small town in Western new York lived a noted infidel. Col. Root. There was no settled minister in the place and the people were dependent upon travelling preachers principally in those Days methodist preachers were not Apt to be overburdened with learning. And col. Root a Man of Fine education familiar with greek and hebrew made it a Point to engage every newcomer in an argument from which he almost invariably came off victorious. So Many had Ben worsted in these encounters that preachers were beginning to give this place the go by when Lorenzo Dow appeared. Hearing the arrival of another methodist col. Root proposed to his intimate Friend or. Bush that they should Quot go Down to the tavern and demolish this after a Little preliminary skirmishing the colonel dashed into the subject of heaven. Quot you believe in a place you Call heaven so of course you must know All about it. Tell us what kind of a place it is. Quot Quot no i Don t pretend to know All about Quot Well you think something about it Don t you Quot Quot certainly i have an idea of it Quot Quot Well give us your idea i Tell us what kind of a place your heaven the keen magnetic eyes fastened themselves upon those of the questioner and in slow deliberate tones Lorenzo Dow replied Quot heaven to my mind is a Broad extended Beautiful Plain Lovely and pleasant to the View and where neither Root nor Bush can Ever let what would come she would always a., Trust to his love. He had some Good Rea employment son for going from Lioma and she resolved not to be again troubled by his absence. For a Tidie she was successful in driving from her thoughts All the suggestions that had tormented her yet she would Oft cd find herself asking them Over again. Her Friend mrs. Wiley came in at new year s to show her the Beautiful pres exit she bad Joist received from her i husband. It was an elegant in Laid Woik-1 Tell Yoi the Comfort Fred has , a in or fact Gem for a lady s work doring our trial. A Fred table. Jhc you Are Well i Hare told the "1 suppose Quot said mrs.

For a few weeks my life was in great danger. He was with us every evening obtained and paid for a. Physician my was Pur Good Angel through All lie often logged As to let Yoti come and assist Cora nursing me but i was bet Nate and would not it is now three months since the fever set in and i am not yet Able to work. The new postal rates commenced in England of Tabora letter weighing one Curico gi�c3 for 3 marriage in joke turning out happily. Thirty years ago when Charleston iii., was in an embryo state Dick Stoddard was caught napping for the first Dick was at a party a country dance and had been playing his tricks on the boys and girls when it was proposed to enliven the company with a matrimonial scene. All things being ready save the Bride and arc Kim two very essential parts of the ceremony they were soon procured in the persons of the aforesaid Dick and the Beautiful and accomplished 3ii�s--, the Belle of the whole country who like Dick was full of fun and of a romantic disposition. The License was easily procured so was the Justice. The ceremony was performed and the Bride and Groom pronounced husband and wife. This of cd urse was considered the joke of the season. Dick and his Bride enjoyed it so did the spectators. The Justice How Ven Hud performed the ceremony had the License and knew the penalty for a failure to return it As the Law directs and being sworn to discharge the duties incumbent upon him As a Justice of the place was legally and morally bound to return the License to the county clerk which he did and where it is to this Day with his certificate properly endorsed thereon to the effect that be had Quot duly joined iii the Bonds of hold Wedlock Quot the kirties aforesaid Dick and his wife soon Learned that what they had conceived to be a joke was a sad or Joyful reality. So the matter was talked Over and they concluded to Mike the Best of they have been living together Ever since blessed with a Bountiful Supply of this world s goods a Large family and a Host Jaf friends and As Dick says they have been enjoying the joke Ever since. Whom did Adam marry and when did be marry her one or. A times Are getting worse and horse every what then tier dear sir will it Loany Good to Daniw your lace up into ten thousand Fri Rikles. And vent the oit Torness of your spirit upon All with whom you conic in Conte a on the strength of the above mentioned fact ? suppose you had to in k Barefoot Over i a path thickly strewn with thorns and i Hap Flinty stones. What would j of ? go aside out the any to tread on every stray Thorn and Pebble instead of 1 carefully avoiding every needless Hurt by j picking your any wearily through Theiu which course will you choose now will you snap Ymir wife up at the breakfast table when she asks you for Quot a Little change Quot would you suggest to her the probability of your All going to ruin in a Short time through the a Jodi Gnu outlays Naile for household needs and then throw the Money across the table at her As you Wonzel a Bone at a dog ? you know very Well that her demand is reasonable and you know too that you would be just As much offended As you arc now if she did not ask you for Money for household expenses when it is needed 1 but you Are not willing to miss the no Portuni Tyhof selfishly venting your in plca.= 5nt feelings on Titis convenient Domestic Scippe gnat. Anti if she should wonder etl to think j of Pluck up enough courage to ask you Fem Money to buy a new dress though it May be Only six my myths since she last i committed this mortal sin Don t ask her i ironically if she thinks a thousand Dol i Lars will do her for this time or make j some cutting remark about her ruinous and the slave life that you led but if you can afford it. Give her 1 the Money and a kiss into Tho a bargain. But if you really feel too poor to Eduige yourself in the pleasure of seeing your wife in a new dress for the first time in six months give her the kiss anyhow and explain the matter kindly to her and the kind explanation will go nearly All the Way toward making Lier forget the disappointment. And above All Don t bring your business Home at night with you. Don t sit in solitary misanthropy or snarl and poke the fire. Your wife has t had a Chancy to talk to you All Day. She has a thousand Little cheering items to communicate but while you sit there looking so cold anti repellent she has no courage to begin.
