May that 'Oreenn ood' of soul bo In sight. A Ueccpfian. Ton may remember that I lectured laHy for tbo.young gentlemen of the Clayonlan society. During tlio after noon of that day 1 was talking with ono of thu young gentlemen referred to, nnd ho said ho bad nn undo who, from somn cauit or other, seemed to liavo grown permanently bereft of all emotion. And, with tears In Ills eyes, this ynunz nian said: Oh, If I could only sfa,'him laugh onco more 1 Ob, IT I could only senhlni weep I" I wns touched. I could never withstand distress. .1 said; "Ufing hlin to tny lecture. I'll 6tart him for you." "Oh, if you could but do it! If you could but do it, all our family would bless yon for evermore; for ho Is very dear to us. Oh, my benefactor. t can you make lilin laugh ? Can you bring soothing tears to those parched orbs?" I was profoundly moved I said: "My son, bring the old party around. I I have got some Jokes In my lecture that will mko him laugh, If thero Is nny latiuh in him; nnd, if they intss fire, 1 bavo cot snmo .others that'll innko him cry or kill him, ono or tho , other." Then tho young mnn wept on my neck, nnd presently spread both hands on my head anil, looked up toward heaven, mumbling something rev erently; nnd then ho went arter his uncle He placed him In dill view in the seeond row nf benches, that night, and I began on him. I tried him with mild Jokes first then with severe ones; I dosed him with bad okes, and riddled hi in with good onosj I fired old, stnlo Jokes ,ln!o him, and peppered' hlni foro and aft with ' red-hot new ones. I warmed up to my work, and assaulted htm on tho right and left, In front and behind. I fumeV tintl charged, and ranted, till I was hoarse and sick, and frantic and fuilous; but I never moved him onco I never started a smile, or a tear I Never a ghost of a smile, and never a suspicion of indMure 1 I was astounded. I closed the lecture at last with one despairing shriek with ono wild burst of humorand hurled a Joke of supernatural atrocity full at lit in . It'never phased him! Then I sat down bewild"red and exhausted. Tho President, nf the society catno up nnd'batlicd 'ifly'head lh cbld Water, and said: "YJiatniado:yoaTcfttry'on'So toward tho lastv I said: "I was trying to make that confounded old Idiot laugh, l:i the sec ond row."' And he said: "Well, 'you wero wast ing your time; because ho Is deaf and dumb, and as blind as a badger." Now, was that' any way'for that old man's nephew to Impose on a stranger and an orphan like me? (Mark Twain. A little boy asked . a lady friend ot his mother who made her teeth. She replied "God." "Well," repllKl'VoUng hopeful, "Dr. Freeman made mother', and they beat ' yours ' by a darned sight."

"Oh, let me sleep,"1 was the reply of the Irato dame, "and don't be fright ened at your o?vu shadow."

Mury years since, when I was a young man about twenty years nf age, I used very frequently to spend Sunday with tny mother, who resided at Ver sailles, this being the only da v of tho ween on .wnirii i count leave l'a' is. i generally walked as farns the .Carrier, and thence I took a seat In ono of the, public carriages, to my mother's house. When I happened In be too early for the diligence, I used to stop and con verso with a beggar, whose name was Anthony, nnd who regularly took his station at the Barrier de Passy, where In a loud voice he solicited alms from every one who passed, with a degree of perseverance that was really astonish ing! While Anthony wns in this manner pouring his exclamations Into tho ears of every one who came within the reach of hi. voice, a middle-aged mail of respectable appearance Joined us. He hail a pleasant expression of conn, tc nance, was vrry well dressed, and ll might be seen at a glance that bo was 'a mnn In good circu instances. Here was a fit subject for the beggar; whdqultklj; made bis advances, proclaiming In a" loud voice his poverty, and soliciting rolief. ''You need not bo a beggar unless you please," rcplled the gentleman, "1 have no other means of Obtalnibg a living." "Are you lame?" "No, sir." "You aro not Wind, nor deaf, and you certainly are riot dumb, as every passer-by can testify. Listen. I will tell you my' history In a few words. Some fifteen or twenty years ago I was a beggar like yourself; at length' l', be gan to sen that It was veiy dlsgra'coful to live on the bounty of others, and I resolved to abandon this shameful way of life ns soon ns I poslbly could. I quitted Paris, went Into the provinces, and begged for old rags. Tho peoplo wero very kind in rue, nnd In a short time I returned to Paris with bly large: bundle of rags nf everv de- Saint on. I carried thpm inmrtoii y?r maker, who bought thera at a fair price. I went ou collecting, until, to my great joy, ray unnnces enacled mo to purchase rags, so that I was no longer forced to beg for thr-m. At length, by diligence nnd industry. I bo- c.iino rich enough to buy an ,ass and uvu panniers, anu.iney saved me until time and labor. My business increased; the paper makers' found thU I dehlt honestly by them; I never palmed .off bad rugs for good ones: I prospered. nnd t-ea tho' result. Instead of being a poor, tlesnl-ed begsar. I h ive ten thou sand crowns a year, nnd two houses in ono of the be-it streets of P.irls, If, tnen. niy menu, you cairilo no better, begin as a rag merchant. And here," ho continued, ''ts'a crown, to set you up hi your new trade; it Is more than I hud; nnd, in addition, ploase take no tice, that If I liud you here another Sunday I shall report you to the po nce." On saying Ibis, the old gentleman walked otf, leavfug Anthony and my self in great surprise. Indeed j thu beggar had beeu so much Interested (u the history he had heard, that ho,, stood witu open luoutu aim eyes, in mute an tonlshirient, nor had "he oven power to solicit alius from, two, well dressed la dles who'pasi-cd at that moment. I could not help being struck with tho story, but Iliad not tlmo to com ment upon It, as the diligence hnd ar rived, in which I seated myself and pur- ' sued my way. From that period 1 lost sight qi the. beggar. Whether the fear of tho police, or tho hopj of gaining, ten thousand crowns a year, had wrought tho change, I was net ware;. It Is sufficient to say that from that day forward he was never' seen at the Bar rier. Many years aftTward It hap pened tlat business called mo to Tuurs. In strolling through tho city I , stepped Into a bookseller's shop to pur-' clias-e a new work that had tuado some noise. I found there were four young iriRn. all busily employed, while a stout. good-lnoklng man was giving thciu ot-'l uers, as ue wuiiteu up ami uown, witu an air ot importance. I thought I had seen the face Ot the bookseller before, but where I could not for a moment till, Until he spoke, and then I discov ered hi in to bo uiy old friend Anthony. The recognition was mutual. JIo grasped my 'baud aud led mo through his shop Into a well 'furnished parlor; He lavished every Uludnew on me, arid finally cave me his1 history from tlio time wo parted at the barrier. Wltl(. the croWn:of the straugcr be began, as ho had advised him, to, collect rags. Ue made money; became the partner ot a paper manufacturer; married his daugh ter; In short, Id hopes were fulfilled, his ambition gratllied, and he could now count lilslr.coino at tea thousand crowns.

A man was boasting that he had been mairied twenty years and never given his wife a, cro word, 'iboso who knew her saj he didn't daro to. Boswell once asked Johnson If llicro was no possible clrctimtlniice under which suicide would utlliable. "No," tald Johnson, "Well," said lloswiill, "supposu a man h.id been guilty of fraud, and that he was certain to bo found out." "Why, then," wai the leply, "In that case let him go to some country wfceru ho Is not known, and not tho place, where ho Is known."
