LETTER HEADS; . i u: j
My wife had cone away for the
summer, and left me in full charge
of the house. I like it: haven't
had such a run of liberty since wc
were married. I hope she's hay
ing a good time, for I can now ex
ercise my rights as the head ot the
family Can't do it. when she's at
home; she'll not stand it. ? She lias:
rules, and makes everbody. about
her toe the mark. But I've crot
her now, and am having things my
This morning I came home quite
early. It was 2 a. m.; I'd been to
the club and got caught in the rain.
For half an hour I couldn't find the
keyhole, which must have got mis
laid. f I felt for it everywhere, and
even got down in the yard and ex
amined every .brick, but couldn't
find it. I was in the act of calling
nuc of my neighbors, and asking
him who had carried off my front
door, when I happened to find it
and got into the house.
In the dark I kicked over a spit
toon, but luckily didn't get any of
the tobacco iuice on my boots.
I hung my overcoat and umbrella
on a prong of the chandelier, let
them drip on the parlor carpet,
went up stairs, and turned in with
my boots on. I thought it wasn't
woi th while to pull them off, as I
would have to get up in eight or
ten hours anyhow. If my wife had
been at home, she'd have had me
looking an hour for the bootjack,
and I would have lost that amount
of rest, which my system so mnch
needed. Besides, she'd have made
me give a full account of myself,
which I don't like to do. I never
did believe in praising myself. It
is better to let others speak of one's
virtues. lean now wear a shirt a
week, and it's nobody's bu3ines. I
don't sec how I ever did get along
with that woman. The idea of hav
ing to put on a clean shirt, black
my boots, and brush np my clothes
every morning, is simply ridiculous.
It is a miracle to me how I ever did
it and attend to my other affairs.
I now read the morning paper with
out being forced to see an impa
tient woman standing, all dressed
un. looking: very miserable, and
finally telling me she is going down
town and wants that paper. Any
one, to look at tue nouse now wouia
know ; there's no woman about,
everything is so quiet and comfor
table and handy. If I want to do a
little, figuring. I don't have to hunt
for: a pencil, , or pen , and ink, but I
just sit down to one of the tables
and do if with my finger, and there's
nobouy to oe eternally wielding (a

Ono night, after ppcaking in his

hundred persons, l?ob ;.Irgorsoli went
to his chamber, and laid him on his
bed to rest. He had a dream.

face to face with a great clock; that
slowly beat out the seconds of a mis
erable existence. "The face of the
clock w a. as gastly as the face of death.
The.hands crawled over tup face like
the worms of corrnption, and cjawled
slowly on toward the" midnight hour.
Every tick of the clock was tli 3 plash
of a great drop of blood in a pool of
gore. Every plash of blood sprinkled
in his bosom with'hideous ' red.1 He
tried vainly to wipe awy the stain;
and he found that his hands, too, were
red like his bosom and like the pool of
blood at the foot of , the .clock. f But
the hands of the, clock crept on to" mid
night. " ; '
There shut around him the hot, suf
focating fog of night. : Then the hopes
and lovea and hates and aspirations
within him groaned and gasped and
died. ;The hot, suffocating , shroud of
vapor wrapped him more; closely, and;
he, too, groaned and gasped ;but death
came not to him as it had como, to his
hopes and affections. He. stood there,
alone in the dying universe, alone with.

BY MAX A DELES.
Colonel Gray was a mcmocr of
the Legislature two or thrco years
ago, when a Tery earnest effort was
being made to pass, a law relieving
railroads from certain taxes, Tho
railroad companies had their agents
in tho lobby, and they were spend
ing monejr pretty freely buying tho
votes of the members. Ono day ,a
lobbyist met Colonel Gray in tho
reading-room of his hotel, and tho
following conversation ensued:
: Agent.' 'Colonel, I don't know
how you, feel about this railroad
tax law, but I am very anxious to
have it go through, and if job Trill
