"Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave
When First Wei'ruetlee to Deceive."
The widow Smith sat up late, reading the
count) paper ; usually the MVclfg Duilye!

read and re-read a certain part of its cob

The widow stopped abruptly, and 10.k.5l
around with a startleil expression.
'lt must have been the cat.' she said to
herself, '1 am as nervous as n mouse. I'm

Then she broke oft' abruptly and sat

who amounted tocnuythiug wouldn't have
to advertise for a wife. 'All alone in the
world.' Poor man ! I feel uncommonly

The clock striking startled lier. After a
long tit of thinking she went to the elock
shelf and look down U )H-U and a U>ttle of
ink ; then she looked in the family Bible
aud found some writing-paier.
It took the widow Smith a long time to
couqtoHe that letter. When she ftnally h:ul
it t> her mind, she copied it, after which
she read it a great many times.
'1 lIO|M> 1 lievu't done wrong,' site said to
her conscience. 'But lean almost sis' the
hand til" Providence piutiu' the way. 'A
widower an' well-to-do, alone in the world.'
It would Is- almost wicked not to try.'
Then she wound up the clock, put the

who livtsl in the next township, was the man
whose lulvertiseinent for a wife had enlist

hud Usui in the lonely and forlorn state of a
single life, lie east his eye, figuratively
speaking, upon ail tin' widows in his neigh-
Uirliood, hut they found no favor in his
sight; so he advertised in the Weekly
Iludtjct and had half a bushel of letters
in answer to his demand. All the
answers had attractions, hut there
was only one that seemed to fulfil his
expectations. It was a tidy little missive
and was signed 'Widow Smith.' She don't
hum aud haw an' U-at round the hush, hut
cornea right to the jn.int like a man," lu-said
to himself. So he w rote to her, and in due
time a second letter catue. It pleased him
more than the tirst.
'She's Mrs. Brown No. u,' he- chuckled.
'She says she's small—l like leetlc wintmiu
—has a farm an' a good house, au' tif course
all alone iu the world or she wouldn't have
an#wred at all. Says her frieuds call her a

The got*! man choked abruptly, and
'She won't mind artcr we're jined. I'll
appint next Thursday to meet. Friday
ain't lucky and Saturday too near Sunday.
I'll tell Simpson to keep dark till I come
there. Wonder if the w idder *s good-look
in'. Wonder if she'll Is* disappintod ?'
The widow was tirst at Simpson's and
held tier Is-st ear for a private audience.
Then she was all smiles, talking over pick
ling and perserving receipes with Mrs.
Simpson, who was an old acquaintance.
When Josiah Brown drove up with his
span of grays, lsst Sunday coat on, best
ft H it foremost,the widow was oltserving him
from Is liind the curtains of the sitting
res mi witnlow.
'W-e-1-1 !' she saitl with a long breath, 'he
ain't to say lian'sum. lie's a little IH>W
leggetl, an' has a cast in one eye. 1 dunno
as I'd have him if it wasn't for the—'
Before she had finished Mr. Simpson was
presenting Mr. Brown, and then all hands
sat down to a 'hiled' dinner.
'I like good vittles,' saitl the widower
with a knowing glance at ids vis-a-vis the
widow, ami he p:isscd his plate for the third
'S'tlo I,' responded the lady with a vivid
blush. 'Mr Smith u#ed to say he couldn't
I tear to eat away from home, 'cause we bail
such good meals.'
Mr. Brown Is-amtsl at her.
After dinner he took Simpson to one side.
'Pretty as a jieaeb an' plump as a partridge;
h>oks like she could keep house for me and
the ugh ! ugh ! ugh !'
A severe fit of coughing interrupted Mr.
Brown's recital. Simpson smiled know*
'You're in luck if you get the widder,' he
said. 'But I can't say it's quite fair not to
tell her alsint the '
'H-u-s-li,' whispered Brown, nervously.
'lt'll lie all right. I'll make her a gotsl hus
band and she won't mind the '
Another severe tit of coughing which
nearly strangled the good man, nipped liis
discourse in the hud.
'I say, Simpson, he inquired presently,
'Has the widow any '
'None in the land of the living,'interrupt
ed Simpson hurriedly.
Mr. Brown rublssl his hands with satis
faction. Then the two joined the ladies,and
the courtship proceeded with such alacrity
that the day was set and, as a neutral
ground, Simpson's house was tendered for
But Mr. Brown visited the widow at her
lonely home several times, and the widow
in company with Mr. Simpson spent a day
at the Brown homestead and was ranch im
pressed with its 'pence and quiet.' She
whispered to Mrs. Simpson :
'l'm so thankful I'm goin' to marry into
a home where there ain't any '
•H-u-s-li ! he's looking at us,' cautioned
Then both ladies laughed heartily, as if
they knew some thing that pleased them
While Mr. Brown was showing oft' his
roomy house he hazarded a remark :
'lts kind er lonesome in a house where
there is nobody hut grown tips. I believe
you told ine you hadn't any'
'They are all in the grave yard ! every
one of 'em,poor things !' sobbed the widow,
with her handkerchief to her eyes.

They were married quietly, only the lm

When they went baek they first located
at the Itrow u homestead. As they eouldit't
live in two places at onee, the widow hod
doci led to well,and invest her money in more
la nl in the neighlxtrhood of her new home,
a plan highly approved by her new partner.
The tirst cloud on the horizon of their new
lives appeared w hen they reached home. It
was no larger than a man's hand—or a
hoy's hand—in fact,that was just the shape
it took, on the white walls.
'One would think you had a family,' said
the widow as she commenced at once to clean

A curious interruption hapjs*iusl. A
tris.p of half-grown boys rushed in at that
moment to welcome the bride. They did
not go through any ceremony of knocking,
and seemed very raucli at home. They
could have sung 'We are Seven,' exactly,as
'Who are they ?' gasped the new Mrs.
*l-1-1 don't know,' faltered Mr. Itrowu,
his legs shaking like castiuets. 'Hun home,
boys, r-r tin home !'
'Where - 11 we go, !\i ?' inquired the
youngest, a cherub of live.
'Ob,' g.uqied the bride, faintly, 'I thought
you wanted a quiet home! I have been
basely deceived ! You said you hadn't

Mr. Itrown. 'An' I thought as long as tjoti

'But 'new Pa' had fsiiuted aud hung limp

The noise brought him to. He asked if

and seemed iu a dazed condition for some
time. Imhsxi the shock of finding himself

too much. His tirst intelligent wort Is

that he was fairly beaten at his own game.
Bringing I'p Children nationally.
It is natural to a child to bft happy,
as it is to a fish to swim. But for this
they need a certain amount of 'letting
alone*. It is a great mistake for par
ents to hamper their children with
foolish restrictions. We pity the lit
tle B's oar next-door neighbor's chil
dren, from the bottom of our heart.
There is a picket fence in the front of
the bouse and they are scarcely al
lowed to go near it, lest they should
climb and hurt themselves. They can
not climb a tree tor the same reason.
They may not skate or swim or have
a gun. The consequence of this train
ing is that parents have made cowards
of them all, with the exception of little
Bessie, who is the most dafing little
mischief that ever wore a sun bonuct,
aud she has learned to be deceitful and
plays all her ntad pranks well out of
her parents,eyes. We caught her the
other day walking the railing of a
bridge that crossed the track of a rail
road a hundred feet below. The rail
ing was not a foot wide, and she tri
umphantly told us she bad walked it
while the traiu was passing under.
It was enough to make one shudder.
Dou't fancy your boy is made of
glass. Grant a reasonable request,
and let bim feel that when you refuse
it is for his own good. Between the
Jellybys and Gradgrinds of life chil
dren have a hard time of it. The
youngest child needs some sort of a
greeable occupation, and a certain a
mount of physical freedom. There is
nothing more painful to young people
than to feel that life is one dull routine
and that 'nothing ever happens' as
we once heard a disconsolate lad re

pitiable plight : his head was done up in a

room as ho Mtoppud into it.
'What's the matter asked Hohbs, airi

'Got-er-er-toothache,' mnmhled Jinks,
crossly. It was enough to make a man
cross to see Hohh's heartless smile.
'How long have you had it?" asked

shining instruments of torture, ranged so
neatly on a little table in full view of the
silly women who occupied his chair at

'Oh, bother,' cried Hobbs, getting out of

to have it out three or four times."
'1 can't,' whined .links, 'l've been trying
to come to it these three days, an' 1 can't.

'Well 1 don't,' replied Holilis, severely.
'Now, sir, when you see tit to let tne look

and so saying, he turned his back on Jinks,
and went on coin|>ouudiiig pills, while the
sufferer walked the floor, ami groaned, and
used reprehensible language at intervals.
'Say, Hobbs, I don't care if yon do look
at that tooth,' he ventured after a time.
'l'm busy,' said Hobbs, crustily, and
ranging his pills in neat, mathematical
'Oh J' replied Jinks, '1 thought you had a
burning curiosity to see it,' and he moodily
resumed his walk.
'I say, Hobb, won't you please look at

extra twinge of pain gave his courage an
'And you won't back oft' the instant I come
near you ?' inquired Hobbs. 'Time's mon

'No, 'pon my honor,' Jinks,' sittiug down
on a chair as cautiously as if he suspected
there was dynamite in it, and opening his
mouth in a small a crack ; his faith in

The Story of a Conflict Which Settled
Who Was BOM.
Old Bud Jackson, one of the terrors
of Montana, lost bis fourth wife, and
came over into Dakota for a fifth vic
tim. lie met and married widow
Baggs, a trail, and gentle woman, who
had just been left a widow for the
third time and seemed crushed to earth
by her losses.
Mrs. and Mrs. Jackson wended their
way to Bud's Montana home, and as
the gushing bridegroom led his bride
into bis lovely cot of one room
and introduced ber to bis favorite
dogs, be said tenderly :
"You want to remember, Mrs. Jack
sen, that I'm the boss here. Don't
you never forgit that The four dear
companions that I've laid away,
mighty soon found that out. All I
ever had to do was to crook my finger
and they come a-running' to know
what I wanted. There wa'n's no
bangin' back nor askin' questions.
You see that ox gad up there f Well
that's the little arbytrater that useter
settle any slight diflTrenoes I ever had
with the four dear companions that
are gone. They ginerally suckkumed
after 'bout six licks, an' I hope you'll
be equally obeejent.
'Now s'posen' you take my boots
an' clean 'em up an' gtease 'cm.
They've got mighty muddy while we
was on our tower. Clean 'em up good.
I'm mighty pertickler 'bout my boots,
an' I'd bate to take that air gad down
the fust day you was in your new
home. Come an' poll off the boots.'
The frail, sad-eyed little bride did
not move. Her pretty lips began to
tremble, and ber gentle bosom heaved.
'You comin' V roared Jackson.
'Hev I got to snatch down that air
gad ? Ob, yer comin', eh ?'
She came. She snatched down the
gad on her way, with set teeth and
eyes that twinkled merrily she landed
within two feet of Bud. He had faced
wild-cats and hyenas, but neyer any
thing like this. A conflict ensued ;it
was short, fierce and decisive. It
ended in Bud's crawling under the
bed, and as his bride prodded him
with a hoe-handle she gailey shouted:.
"Ye pore inneroent thing ye!
Had'nt no mo' sense ner to raise the
dander of Lizy Jane Baggs Jackson,
her that never did nor will take a
word of Bass from any man living.
Ye'd better crawl under there ! Ye'd
better crawl clean through the wall.
Oh, ye'll holler 'nuff,' hey ? Wall,
you go and cot a month's supply o'
stove wood 'fore you show yer face
