with him, mi l prophesied nil maimer

with tho exception of C.uisJn .John
Mulford mid his wife, Arvilla.
They pushed her in lo r unpopular
proceeding. Cousin John even went
and luondvd the roof of til : leaky b it
pietuivMpio little cottage, wh eh stood
on it glassy hillside, sheltered by the
sweeping blanches tif hnlf a doz m or j

had given the place its name.

in John. "An Hazel w.ll hive a

with pretty I. leasehold furniture llu.el
hud bought, an 1 w hich Coiisiu John
brought out with his oxteam, the
young mistress of Cheriy Farm felt a
serene content in her posses-ions that
nil the ill-natiii'ed foii.bo.liiigs of the
Mulford clan failed to disturb.
"Thur you nir, JIuzel - snug ns n

Roniniicc (if a Wig.
A tragic cutting of a comic hco.u
has resulted in the heroine of the ad
venture being conveyed to tho hospital
iu a very precarious state, while tlir.
hero is securely under lock ami key
at tho depot of the Ferfooturo of l'n
lico in Paris. The whole affair turned
on somo silly fun and stupid horseplay
about a wig. A young mail had been
fueinated liy tho attractions of a girl
a few years his junior and had asked
to bo permitted to pay his at It ut ions
to her, but kIio was by no menus dis
posed to return tho compliment, ns
ho hud become very bald through ill
ness, and, nu tho object of his n frac
tions concisely put it, sho would never
dream of in irryiiig any one with no
hair on his bend.
The youth metliliito I over his di.s
coinliliirc, ami then a happy though',
flushed upon him. '.Io would repiiii
tho ravagos of unkind nature by a re
course to art, and forthwith ho wended
his way to a hail -dresser's shop ai.e
became tho delighted possessor of
w ig with cui lsnnd love-had.s and dab
a rate parting in front n ml be hi ml, which
as ho fondly hoped, would produce
the desired impression on the heart
of the obdurate young woman.
Thus adorned, he proceeded lint
evening to a restaurant, wliero sho
wns dining with somo friends, but t i
his horror, she not only burst out
laughing when he appeared on the
scene, but presently undo it dash at
his wig, which she tore till", revealing
his denuded head to tin iislouinliod
gaze of tho parly. Tho youth en
deavored to wrest tho wig from her
grasp, and so, liuding herself h:ird
pressed, the fair maiden pass d it
over to the oth-r side id the room, and
then, as ignorant of the fact, ho stiil
struggled, she dealt him a ship in the
Jbside himself with disappointment
and wrath, th ; young muu sn ttclnd a
knife from tho table, and ere the sp-c-tatorsof
tho scene could interfere, h :
slabbed the girl in the neck. Cries t f
dismay now resounded instead of p ids
of laughter which had hitherto rent
the air ns tho young woman fell faint
ing to tho Hour. '1 h police were sum
moned, mid while the youth was b d
oil' in custody, tho girl was taken to
the shop of a ueigboring druggist
pending her removal to tho hospital.
It is feurod that sho will not recover.

Admiral Sir t i. W told me that
when he eounnuii.lod an Indian troop
ship a full-grown ti;cr was embarked
for passage to K igland as a present
from some Indian prince to the (Jueen.
It was n magnificent animal, mid for
many years afterward exhibited at tho
Zoological (i irilens. One morning
about 5. lb), the captain was awakened
by a messenger, who su d; "Please sir
the tiger has broken loose!" His
reply was; "Lock my cabin dour ami
call nto when he's iu his cage again."
It appears that iu cleaning the
cage, tho men being then washing
dock, the door of the ciio bad been
unfastened, and th) beast hail escaped,
causing a regular stumped1, tin; bliu
jackets forward running up this rig

had not heard of its e eipe, ami were

At any rate, an old tpiartermnster real

A little mouse out! ! lived uu b r a
pantry where ail manner of good
things were stored. He fed so well on
these dainties that ho became quite
fat nutl v.-ry c inooited, too, for he
thought that tho gootl things were
placed in Hit! pantry for his cqiociul
belief!'. "Tiles ! good people," Hiid
he, "do nil iu their power to make me
happy I, too, can make th.'ui happy
by tasting of nil the nice things they
place before inc." So every night he
went regularlv from dish to dish, niii
bling a little . t from one and u little
bit from another, until he had nib
bled ut all the dainties.
One very hot summer's night us he
crept into the pantry ho saw there two
lull white things with beautiful shin
ing bodies; he didn't know that they
were only w.i canities, so ho gazed iu
admiration of their beauty, wonder
ing who or what they couid be.
"Perhaps," said he, "they are the
good people of tin; house," mid us he
mused thus the candles began to betid
over with the heat, "Oh !'' sai I he,
"they are bowing to me! ' so he drew
himself up proudly and then bowed
stiPly to the caudles, while they bent
lower iiiid lower until their heads
almost touched their feet. Thou the
mouse run oil' and began his round ol
tnstiiigof tho iliinties on the dishes
Well, it happened that he f 'it very
Bleopy that ni;iht, so presently he sat
down mid rested against one of the
candles, mid there soon fell lust asleep-
Now while he slept the caudle melted
with the heat and dropped upon him
until it quite Covered all but his
nose; but when the early morning
come the air grew chilly nud the wax
became hard again, so that the mouse
was heltl a prisoner iu tho caudle's
At last the mouse awoko au 1 w is
horritied to find that ho could not
move hand or foot, for he was com
pletely c ivelcd wii Ii hard, cold wax,
which held him as tirmiy as uu lien
cu-e. He squeaked and whimpered,
but no help came; then he cried,
Oil! fool that I was to fail into such
a trap; my father his olteii said,
'beware of tho exalted when they bend
lov to the humble.' "
As he said these words a servant en
tered tho pantry ami took up the
candlestick, but when she saw the
mouse's nose she screamed, and threw
tho candlestick into a pail of water,
and the poor mouse wan drowned
ami that was ihe sad end of the con
ceited little limine.- Now II I Iget.
