ONLY A FEW WORDS.
Mr. Jau.es Wiukuluiao shut the door
with a bang us be left tbe house, and
moved dowu the street in tbe diiection
of bin office, with a qu'ck, firm Step, sod I
tbe air ul a uiau slightly disturbed iu .
"Things are getting better fast," said
he, with a touob of irony in his voice, as
be almost flu'ig himself into his leather
cushioned chair "it's rather hard wben

bargain. I'm past the age for learning
With these and many other justifying
sentences, did Mr. Winkelman seek to
obtain a feeling of self approval. But,
fur all t is, he could not shut out tbe
image of a tearful faoe, nor get rid of an
annoying conviction that he bad acted
thoughtlessly, to say the least of it in
speaking to his wife ss he had done.
But wbat was all tbis trouble about?
Clouds were in tbe eky that bent over
the home of Mr. Winkelman, and it ia
plain that Mr. Winkelman himself bad
hia own share ia the work of produoing
these olouds. Only a few unguarded
words had been spoken. Only wordß !
And was that all f
Words are little tbingß, but they
sometimes strike hard W* wield tbem
ao easily that we are apt to forget their
hidden power. Fitly spoken, tbey fall
like the sunshine, tbe dew and tht ferti
lising 1 sin ) but when unfitly spoken,
li>« tbe frost, the hail and the desolating
tempest Some speak as tbey feel or
think, without calculating the foroe of
wbat tbey say; and then aeem very
much surprised if any oue is hurt or of>
fended. To tbis olasa belonged Mr.
Winkelman. His wife was a loving,
sincere woman of quick feelings. Words,
to ber, were indeed realities. They
never fell upon ber ear as idle sounds.
How otien was ber poor beart bruised
by them !
Oo tbis particular morning, Mrs. Win
kelman, whoso health was feeble, found
herself in » weak nervous suite. : It was
only by an effort that j)he 'could rise
above the morbid irritability that afflict
ed ber. Earnestly did she strive to re
press tbe disturbed beatings of her heart,
but she in vain. And it seemed
to ber aa it often does.in'suob cases that
everything went wrong. Tbe children
were fretful, tbe 000k dilatory and oroqa,
and Mr. Winkelman impatient, because
sundry little matters pertaining to his
wardrobe were not just to )>is mind
"Eight o'clock,.and no breakfast yet,"
said Mr. Winkelman, as be drew out I)is
watcb, on eompleting hia *owo toilet.
Hrs Witikeluiun wis in the actof dress
iug the last of five children, all of wham
had passed under bor hands Eaeh
was oaptious, cross or antuiy, sorely try
inc the mother's palienoe Twice had
'she been inlo the kitchen to see how
breakfast was progressing, and to enjoin
tbe oareful preparation oi B favorite
dish with which the had purposed 10
surprise her husband.
''lt will be ready in a few minutes/'
said Mrs Winkleman. "The fire hasn't
burned treely this morning "
"If it isn't one thing, it's another''
growled the husband "I'm getting tir
ed of this irregularity. There'd #OOO
be no.breakfast io.«ei, if I Were always
bchiLd time- iu business matters."
Mrs. Winkleman bent lower over the
ehiid she was dressing, to conceal the ex
pression of her face What a sharp
pain throbbed through her temples 1 Mr.
Winkleman began to puae the floor im
patiently, little imagining that etery
jarring footfall was like a blow on the
tensitive, aching brain ot bis wife.
' Too bad 1 100 bad !" be bad just ejao
ulated when the bell rung.
"At last!" he muttered, and strode to
ward the breakfact room The ahildren
followed in considerable disorder, and
Mis. Winkleman, alter hastily arranging
her hair, and putting on a morning cap,
jointd them at the tuble. It took some
ui»uients to restore order a'uoug the lit
The dish that Mrs. Winkleman bad
been at conaideiabie rains to provide for
Iter husband, was set beside bis plate
It was favorite among many, ana bis
*ile, looked for a pleased recognition
thereof, and a lighting up of his clouded
brow Hut he did not eeem to even no
tioe.it After supplying the children.
Mr Winklemau helped himself in sil
ence. At tha first mouthful he threw
down bis knife and folk, and pushed his
plate from him
"What's tbe matter f" inquired bis
"You didn't trust Bridget to cook this,
I hope !" was his response.
"Wbat Is the matter wiih it 7" Mrs
Winkleman's eyes were filling with tears
"Oil! it's of uo consequence," answer
ed Mr. Winn leman, coldly; "auytbing
will do for me."
"James!" There was atouchingsad
nees blended with a rebuke in her ao
acuta; aud, as she- uttered hia name,
tears gushed over ber cheeks.
Mr. Winklemsn did not like tears.
They always annoyed him. At the prea
eut lime be was \n no mood to bear with
them So, on the impulse of the mo
ment, he arose from the table and left
Self justification was tried, though not
as has been seeu, with complete success
Tbe ealuier gtew the mind ot Mr. W ink
leiumn, and the dearer bis thoughts, the
lees satisfied did be feel with the part be
bad taken in tbe mornings drama. By
•n inversion of thought not usual amoog
sen of bia temperment, he had been pre.
►ented with a vivid realisation ot bia
wife's side of the question. The oonee
quenoe was, that by dinner time, be felt
a good deal ashamed of himself, and
grieved for the pain be knew his hasty
words had occasioned
It was in this better state of mind
that Mr. Winkleman returned home
Tba bouse soemed still as he entered
As he prooeeded up stairs, he heard the
children's voio*s pitched to a low key in
the nursery. He listened but could unt
bear the tones of bis wife. So be pass
ed into the front chamber which was
darkened. As soon aa he could see olear
ly in the feeble light he saw that his
wife was lying on Iho bed. (!cr eyes
were oloeed, fcnd her tbin face looked so
pale aud deathlike, that Mr. Wiokleman
felt a cold shudder creep throegh bis
heprt. Coming to the bedaidb be leaned
over and gaxed down upon her At first
he was in doubt whether she really
breathed or not; and he felt a heavy
''i ight removed when be a«w that her
obept rose and fell in feeble, respiration.
"Mary J" he spoke in • low tender
Instantly tbe fringed eyelids parted,
and Mrs Winkleman gascd up into her
bqtband'a faos in partial bewilderment,
hi Obeying the moment's impulse, Mr
Winklttnsn bent down and left a kiss
upon her pale lips. As If moved by an
eljotrie thrill, the wife's arms were flung
around the husband's neok.
"I 181 sorry to find .you so ill," said
Mr. a voice of sympathy.
1 What is the sitter ?"
"Only a siekjieadaohe," replied Mrs
Winkleman. liut I've had a good sleep
and feel better 'naw. I didn't know it
was so late," tone changing slightly,
and a look of hnoero coming into her
countenance. "I'm afraid your dinner
is not ready ;"and she attempted to rise.
Hut her buband gently laid her back
with his ham saying: '-Never mind
about dinner It will come in good
time If yot leel better lie perfectly
quiet Hateyou suffered much pain ?'»
"Yes." The word did not part her

What a healing power was in his tender
tones and ooutiderate words 1 And that
kiss—it bad thrilled along every nervo
—it had btiea as nectar to the drooping
spirit. ' Bu. I feel so mueh bettor, that
I will get up," she added, now rising
from her pilUw.
And Mr*. Winkleman was entire!)
free from pain As she stepped upon
the carpet, and moved across tbe room,
it was with 1 firm trend Every mu«ole
was clastio, and the blood leaped along
her veins with a new and healthier im
No tiialnf Mr. Winkleman's patience
in a late dinner was in store for him. In
a few minutes tbe bell summoned the
family; and ho took bis place at the
table so traaquil in mind that he almost
wondered at the change in his feelings
Hiw different was the soene from that
presented at the morning meal 1
And was there power in a few simple
words to effect such a change as this?
Yes, iu simple words, with tbe
odor of kindness.
A few gleams of light shone into the
mind of Mr. Winkleman, as he returned
musing to the office, and be saw that he
was frequently to blame for tbe olouds
that so often darkened over tbe sky of
"Mary is foolish," he said in partial
| BelfjUßtificalibn, "to lake my hasty wurd*
:so much to heart. I speak often with
out meaning half what I say. She ought
to know me better. And yet," he added
as bia step became slower, for be was
thinking more ingenuously than usual,
"it may be easier for me to chsose piy
wo.ds more cmfully, and to repress the
unkindness of tone that givei them a
double foroe, than for her to help fecliug
pain at their utterance."
llight, Mr. Winkleman ! That is the
eotnmon sense of the whole matter. It
is easier to strike than to help feeling
pain under the influence of a blow.

When Maine war* « district of
Massachusetts, Ezokiel Wirtufin was
chosen to represent the distriot in fhe
Massachusetts Legislature He was a.i
ecceritiio man, and one of the best
lawyers of his time- He owned a farm
and did much work on his land, and
when the time oame for hiui to set out
for Boston, his best suit of clothes was
a suit of homespun. His wife objected
to his going in bis gaib, but be did not
"I will get a nice suit made as soon as
I reach Boston," he said.
Reaching his destination, Whitican
found rest at Doolutle's City Tavern.
Let it be understood that he was u
graduate of Harvard, ami at tbis tavern
ho was at houie As he eutered the
parlor of the bouse, ho founJ several
ladies and gentleuieu assembled, and he
heard the following remark from oue of

"01, git eout! I eat toast ; never

But 1 can give you a sentiment "
The ladies olapped their hands ; but
what was their surprise when the
stranger, rising, spoke calmly aud clearly
"Ladies and gentlemen, psrmit me to
wish you health and happiness, with
every blessing earth can afford, and may
you grow belter and wiser in advancing
years, beariog ever in mind ibat outward

He had just finished, when Caleb

Then, turning to the dumbfounded
company, be said :
"I wish yon a very good evening "
One day a bear walked out of the
woods and, all uninvited, entered the
bumble home where ibe uiau and his
wile Betsey wore silting At sight of
bis bruiuship the lord of orration arose
from his chair with a wild yell of terror
aud, without thought of bis wife,
hastened to climb a place of refuge on

one oorner of lite room. The more
valiant Betsey stood her ground, and
seizing a long poker fiercely attacked tbe
bear, and did uot desi.»t, in spile ot tbe
game defence which he made, until site
had stretched him dead at her feet.
Her lord and master from his safe perch
watched the oouihat between her and
the bear with evident interest, aud ever
and anon kept shoutings "Give it to
him, Betsey," "Hit him another wine
across the hend," "Smash his infernal
skull'," eto. As soon aa he became
satisfied that the brute was dead, and
