been prepared for the occasion by his better
half, and the contents of which he was as ut
terly igrrorant of as his guest, before he had
perused them. In fact it is n matter of specu

It happened that'upon this identical morning
Pat's doinestic cat had achieved her accouch
ment; the event of which had been an increase
to his family to the extent of five fine thriving
comely kittens, orpursheens, as Pat would term
them in his native parlance. One of those was
in accordance, as he imagined, with his gnest's
directions, brought to the knafe, dismembered,
fricasseed, and in proper time duly served up
for dinner. The dish proved savoury; Monsieur
smacked his lips, and on the ensuing day, a
repetition of the precious article was ordered
on the next day ;m en core on the next" a de

his detestation of bad liquors, in the folio w

Pure, unadulterated liquor is a wholesome
and pleasant beverage, and as far as experi

liquor, gentlemen, or, what is worse, a drug
ged article, cannot be tolerated; and if deal

a few momenta' silence. -
'Did you order that coal I spoke td yoii
about?' - , - '
'Indeed, my dear,I am very sofrf , but 1
forgot all about it. It shall come to-morrow.'
. Another hour's silence, which is relieved
by the baby's crying, hd riither liking to
hear a noise of some sort, I make no effort
to quiet him.
'My dear,' said Mr Show, after he cried a
minute or so, 'hadn't you better give the
baby some catnip tea to quiet him? he trou
The baby is still, and another hour passes
away without a breath of noise. Becoming
tired of silence, I take a lamp and retire for
the night, leaving Mr S. so engaged with
his papers that he doe3 not see me leave the
room. - (
Towards midnight he comes to bed", and
just as he has fallen to- sleep the baby takes
a notion to cry again. I rise as quietly as
possible, and try to still.him. While I am
walking the room with the small Snow in my
arms, our next a boy of three years be
gins to scream at the td of his- lungs.
What can I. do? There is no course but to
call Mr Snow; so I call out: Mr Snow! Mr
Snow! Mr Snow!
The third time he starts up and replies:
'What, Tim more copy?'
As though I was Tim that little devil "
running about his office! I reply, rather !
coolly, 'No, I don't want any more copy -
I've had enough cf that to last my life time;
I want you to see what Tommy is crying

The next morning at breakfast, when t
give Mr Snow an account of my last night's
adventure, he replies: 'Indeed, my dear, I
am sorry the children troubled yotu'
That is always the way. If I complain, it
is, 'indeed, my dear, I am sorry,' but should
the very same thing occur the subsequent
n'ghti directly before his eyes, very likely
he would not see or know anything about it,
unless it happened to interrupt the train of
his ideas. Then he would propose catnip
tea, but before I can get it into the infant's
stomach, lie will be far away in the -realms
of thought, leaving me not a little vexed at
his apparent stupidity.
Mr Snow knows the name of every paper,
published in England, France and Germany
but he can't, for the life of hirii, tell the
names of his own -children. He knows just
the age of every American journal, but he.
does not know the age of his ovvn babj'. He
knows just how orie'of'his contributors looks
but I don't believe he can tell whether my
eyes are black or blue. .

Ilonesty the Bet Policy;
Nothing is more essential to the business
man for success in his mercantile pursuits, than
the establishment upon a substantial basis, lite
business position and his character for honesty
and straight forward dealings. This position
once attained in the community, success is al-
ways sure to follow his business operations;
Without it he becomes like the Consumptive pa
ttentj always ailing; and subject to the atmos
phcriovttaHes'of the hour. -Irt the - morning"
he lives is known; in the evening, dead for
gotten. He is only, referred to as a warning to "
others, avoid his mistakes and Steer clear of
his errors; while the honest merchant prospers
from day to day, becomes beloved and respected
by the community in Which he moves. Success
crowns his labors, and Wheh th hour of his
earthly departure come3 he dies tegretted. and
his memory ever remains green hs a monument
of worthy of honesty, and the three elements of
success. The old proverb that "honest is the
best policy," is verified over and over again
throughout ths world, and no man who has adop
ted the principle from the love of it, has ever
repented for his choice. While thousands upon
thousands have too late seen the mistake of
negle'cting its adomonition, and there by pur
sued the shadow for the substance.
Honesty is the best policy and the more
thoroughly it is brought into evtery- minute
transaction of life the greater the success, both
in worldly as well as spiritual gains.
-Foufcb His Match. We saw a good
thing yesterday. In the Court of Quarter
Sessions; a petty .case was being tried. A well
known Criminal lawyer, who prides himself
upon his skill in cross-examining a witness
had 'tin odd looking genius-upon whom td
operate. 'The. witness was a boss shoe ma
ker. "You say, Sir, that the prisoner is a
'Yes, Sir, 'cause why sue confessed it."
"And you also swear she bound shoes for"
you subsequent to the confession?"
"I do, sir."
"Then" giving a sagacious look to the
Court "we are to understand that you em
ploy dishonest people to work for you, even
"after their rascalities ate known?
"Of course, how else Could I get assis
tance from a lawyer?" i
Not much mjade out of that witness.

Answering Letters. .
There are few things so much neglected4.
in the so-called polite world as' answering
letters. This arises from an indifference in
some people, and a dislike to write in othersi.
The latter feeling is often so tnucli indulged
in, cr allowed to mlluencte the possessor to
such an extent that a : letter requiring an
answer will be left for days and weeks, a
constant and ever-recurring source of an--
noyanfce and reproach, on account of tht
unpleasant reminding it " gives from time to
time of the neglect it meets with. This re-4
pu"-nance to writing might soon be over- -come,
by observing the following rule:" It
is simple to answer a letter at the very firf t
opportunity that offers; if looked upott as
a disagreeable task, the sooner it is got rid
of the better; but its odvantage Vould not ,
rest here, for this practice, if resolutely pur
sued, would break down thd barrier, and
the difficulty would vanish , ,
