very inconsistent with your present

put the repressor on your conduct."
"Do you indeed t Well, now, Mr
Weldoii, would you not liko a glass of
water or a sip of lemonade after that
long-winded speech ? You ought to
get a position as a Sunday school su

to command obedience.''
"And I'm afraid it's equally natural
for you not to obey."
"Now, Louis, I think it would be
prudent to drop the conversation."
"Agreed, my dear I"
And Louis Weldoii and his month
old bride stopped talking and
looked at each other; lie was grave
and dignified, and sho just as impudent
and unconcerned as possible.
Louis Weldoii was a grave, proud
man, with a splendid intellect, though
somewhat prejudiced against strong

lover days was a mystery to Lelia.
She was a handsome cirl, in tlio
dark style of beauty.
Her eyes wero simply glorious.
Tho ideas of Louis Weldoii and his
wife were generally different; but
they both agreed in" one respect, and
that was their lovo for each other.
They had spent nearly a month
roaming around sight-seeing, and they
had been so happj , Lelia vaguely wou
dered if the lierfeet Heaven-caught
rays of the honeymoon would continue
to shine- until tlio silver setting of life's
"Now, Louis, 1 don't want you to

ical failure of trying to assume a mar-tyr-liko
air as her husband began to
"Of course. I shall not scold you f
And Louis Woldon kissed tho" half
pouting lips. "But, really, my dear, I
want you to uoido by my wishes."
"With pleasure, Louis."
"Now I consider my judgment su
perior to yours in sotno things."
"And if you can only convince me
of thu last-mentioned fact, I suppose
things generally will assume that even
tenor that is so admirable."
"Well, wo won't discuss tho matter
any further at present."5
And Louis Weldon lighted a cigar
and strolled leisurely down town, for
getting for tho first ti mo to leave tho
accustomed kiss on Lelia's scarlet
Ono thing was evident, thought Mr.
Weldon ; Lelia showed signs o f rebel
lion, and, in his judgment, to havo a
happy homo man must be tho ru.'er.
And yet ho did not mean to be un
Oh, no I
No man ever does ; but Lelia v, 'ould
not pleivso him if sho continued in, tho
old irrepressible way.
One day, as he sat reading, a pa'ir of
soft hands suddenly blinded his c lyes,
and tho owner of tho hands said gay
ly: "Who is it"
"Yes, sir j right tho first time."
"Lelia, don't you know I don't likt

And Lelia beuan humtnint- it littlo

"Lelia, I wish you would leave off

Mr. Weldon, without glar icing from,

But Mr. Weldon was reading a ve ry

A sort of a frown gathered on Mr.
Weldon's face, but ho crossed tho room
to where sho sat in her pride.
"Lelia," ho said, tenderly, "a boy
brought a telegram to my office to day
that said that Mjlly was dead.
Lelia knit her slender hands convul
sively together, and repeated tho words
Blowly, as though scarcely compro
bending their meaning.
Lily was Lelia's older sister, and Mr.
Weldon remembered tho grave, pallid
girl who ras introduced to him at
their wedding as "Sister Lily."
And no had wondered how anyone,
and especially Lelia's sister, could
grow so spiritless.
Her husband was a grave, reticent
maif that Woldon had admired for his
chani'clcss dignity ; but ho could not
help contrasting tho impetuous tiger-

called th o two sisters.

She had died at her mother's home,

Another Lincoln Anecdote.
Mr. Lincoln was terrribly bored by
men who fancied that thoy had somo

patent plan lor conquering tho rebels,
among them was a Western farmer,
who was patiently listoned to, and
who, when Ho had concluded, asked
tho opinion of tho President upon his
plan. "Woll," said Mr. Lincoln, "I'll
answer by telling you a story. You

which he, the said Blank, was certain
of becoming independently rich. When
ho had finished ho asked tlio opinion of
ins hearer upon his plan ot operations.
The reply came as follows : 'My ad

'But,' asked Blank, 'what is my busi

Iho Dndo in Court.
It is to bo regretted that tho oppor
tunity which was presented to a Mon
treal judgo last week of fixing definite
ly tho meaning of tho "dude' was not
properly improved, A Mr. Hamilton,
of Montreal, havingsued a fcllow-mcni-her
of tho Canadian civil scrvlco for
calling him a dudo on tho public street,
tho court had to asccrtaiu what a dudo
is in order to decide whether it is an
epithet to which a man responsibly
caroful of his good namo can olter valid
legal objection. Witnesses aro accord
inglycalled to pronouncoupon the word
to determine its meaning and custo
mary use. Experts wero examined and
a largo mass of evidence was accumu
lated. But, as usually happens whero
experts arc brought into a case, tho
testimony, as tiio examination proceed
ed, became so muddled and irreconcila
bly conflicting, that the judgo in des
pair announced himself unablo to de
cide what a dudo really is, and heuco
dismissed tho case. Yet tho word as
much as any other is capablo of accu
rato definition, and it was tho duty of
the couit to persist in its inquiries un
til satisfied that tho term applied to tho
plaintiff was not one of opprobrium.
As originally used, the term dudo ap
plied to any solemn young coxcomb of
faultless dicss and a pathetic manner,
who devoted his entire energies to
maintaining tho puro English cut of his
custome, an absolute property of de
liortment and perfect vacuity of mind.
He was tho delight and pride of his tai
lor, and altgetoher was an eminently
inoffensive and law-abiding citizen. It
would be a gross error to identify him
with the "dandy" or "beau," to whom
in quietness of taste and modesty of de
meanor hu was greatly superior. Ho was
nothingif not unemotional and retiring.
Nobody ever made the mistake of inden
tifyiug him with "tho young blood," "tho
fast young man," or tho "male flirt"
social typos from which the true dude,
if his nattiro permitted any violent sen
timent would shrink with genuine hor
ror. In point of dress, of morals and
gentlemanly demeanor of a nega
live sort, ho was canfessedlv unassail
able. That ho approved of himself
goes without saying. The true dime,
therefore, so far lrotn being insulted
when called one, was proud of tho rec
ognition the epithet implied. But new
terms nro liable to misuse. Tho mis-
tiso of tho word dudo is lamentable,
and it has gono so far that tho term is
often used recklessly to convey no do
finite idea. Against this practice, at
least, the court should havo voiced in
no mistakable tone its sovero condem -
nation. The dude is a harmless ani
mal of a distinct species, and should
not be confounded with other zoologi
cal or anthropological curiosities.
Sizing Him Up.
Some peoplo are imbued with tho
idea that they can read characteristics
in features of tho face. Thero aro pco
plo who place confidence in their abi
lity to judgo of a man's predilections
by certain formations of tho nose,
mouth, ears, eyes, or bumps on the cra
nium. Hotel clerks especially havo un
limited opportunities ot testing this nature-reading,
nnd tho majority of them
claim to bo able to ""size a man up" to
tho last cent in his pocket. One of tho
threo obliging clerks at the Etnpiio
House had unbounded faith in this
"suing up" process, and until last week
used to apply it with seeming success
upon tho many people with whom ho
came in contact. Now, hownver. things
havo changed, and any mention of
his peculiar ability seems to enrago
Recently ho had occasion to engago
a bellboy, and of tho many applicants
for tho position selected ono whoso
"eyes beamed with honesty,'' as ho ex
pressed it. So struck was" lie with tho
boy's appearance that ho continually
expatiated on tho honest eyes to his fellow-clerks
and Landlord Talbot. When
the boy had been in the house about
half au hour tho reader of huinau nat
ure had occasion to send his protege
after change for a $10 note. At last
accounts tho boy still employs the "hon
est oyes" in searching for small change.
Ho is understood to havo got as far as
Buffalo, but is hourly expected back
ith tho mm. Syracuse Standard.
A Pool and His Money.
Ten thousand dollars was lot in ten

ho was strango to gambling-house
scenes. Walking slowly up to a faro
game, where .10-ecnt white chips wero
n order ho tossed down a bill.
"Givo mo a thousand," ho' said.
Tho dealer bowed to .tho now comer
and said :
"All right, sir."
Tho stranger coolly divided his pilo
of chips into two piles and then placed
them carelessly on tuo layout, in a
second both stakes wero gathered
