"I am afraid I do." was Iho astound-
And with a swiit glaucoat the clock,

"Why what 011 earth! She must bo

"If I don't sec about tho dinner it

'Well, if this don't boat all," said lie
to tho malteso and white cat, who as

Solomon Wyse, wiping tlio crumbs of
the feast from his lins before ho drank

Never had two hours between luiioli

As hu rodo round and round tlio field

A SKETCH "OF HIS LIFE.
Hon. John G. Carlisle, representing
tho Gth district of Kentucky 111 tho pre

of age, seven years of which ho has
served in Congress with increased dis
tinction each term. Soon after enter
ing upon his first term in 1S7C it was
coucedod by tlio older members of the
House that Mr. Carlisle was destined
to become a central figuro in national
politics, and timo has verified tlio wis
dom of their prophecy by his elevation
to the speakership of tlio body in which
he has so brilliantly figured.
Tho contest from which Mr. Carlisle,
lias just so successfully emerged is a
victory that brings him into formidable
prominence as an excellent probability
on tho Presidential ticket of 1881.
Within an hour after his selection by
