All Unliappy Happy Man.
Ifit In possilile for a happy lroarvto
l)e iiiisenible, I'm that man. T have
quite enough of this world's goods to
make me comfortable, a tight roof over
my Itead and a warm hearthstone for
my feet, and yet I'm miserable that
is to say my Inppiness is sulgect- to
stich sudden and unexpected inter
ruptions that I'm never able thor
oughly to enj iy the good things which
have fallen to my share.
It all comes from my having one of
the best wives in the world, but stilj a
wife with a, defect. Yes, with an in
c.ur.ible defect, for after ten years try
ing I'm no nearer a cure than I was
when I commenced.
njay describe my wife's defect ;it;
the'fo'lowin terms: An uncoutrpl
;ibie inclination to think of Iter some
thing else when I want her to thiukjof
my something else.
The coi.s quence is that although
sue is one or lue most trtistwortuv
wor.ian that ever darned a stockinir or
made two iww soils of clot Ins for t lie

never can know es.ictly what she is

When I muke known my v ihes lo
Eiizibeth such is her name, God bless
her she hu.ks me calmly and tenderly
into the eves and murmurs:
k- Yes, dear." "
ljut that "yes dear" might just as
well be spoken by one of Kdisou's
talking dolls so far as it expresses her
thoughts at that moment, tm- as I have,
said she is. always yes, always-- t hi lik
ing or her somet limg else when 1 uaiit
her to think of urj something else. '
And the tioul!e is I don't dare man
ifest the least suspicion that she is
loing so. Site at6nce becomes mildl
indignant u?;d asks u;e in a tone
tinged with sarcasm:
"Samuel Duck," that" my given
name, God bless ine too, "didn't you
hear me say yes dear ?"
Of course I heard her say 'yes
de.tr" and I mu-t confess that her
"yes dear" has such an honeitand per
suasive ring to it that it would satisfy
doubting Thon;as himself.
Knowing that Monday was J'!:, -iietii's
b'Tiled dinner day I said to her
"You know Podgerly, Jaiza'bpth, one
of my best customers. Well, he is in
town and I want to have him take
dinner with us Monday. Please have
a mre roast.
Would you believe it, when Pod

odor of corn beet and cabbage was
strong enough to float a pine board. !
Did she mean to be unkind to me
and give Podgerly a boiled dinner?

The man from the Tar-1 feel State
created a favorable impression at first
glance. He was the beau ideal of an
orator three stories high, loose in the
n-J nuts and a wild expression to
eyes. As he took his place upon
the platform it was noticed that he
toed out. and covered a great deal of
space with his feet, and this was also
taken as a further favorable sign oi
his intellectual greatness. There was
no sign of nervousness in his actions.
and it. was clearly evident that he w
the habit ot audressing large itnd
tae -trout or the nlatlorm and hemn.
THE EFFIIONT OF HIS LIFE..
"Mv f re ns," he said as he locked his
frigers together and then looked be
nignly d'wn upon the bt!d shin- cra
nium of Judge Cante'ope White, "does

"An' now, why docs sweet milk

the orator after getting his breath.
"Yo' may think dis has nuffin' to do
wid de case, but it has. It has a heap
to do wid it. De rich man has to use

refines the ear and trains that organ to
a nice perception of tone and intona

we know, cannot be said of the piano.
The violin can ne carried by the player
anywhere, thereby saving him the in
convenience of performing upon an
unfamiliar instruaient. Fur'hermciv,
a good violin can be secured for less
money than a bad piano usually costs.
A violinist of average attainments

while it requires a Chopin or a Liszt to
produce a similar impression with the
cold and ungrateful -piano-forte.- The
violin, comparatively to the piano

graceful than that of the pianist. I
