MY RAILWAY COMPANION.
After awhile we came to a stopping
place. The curly haired fellow put his
shawl over the back of the seat to keep his
place for him, and went out. Quick as
thought I piled the boxes into Mrs. Poo
dle's lap, stepped over her, and took the
seat the young man just vacated.
Mrs. Graves looked up at me in evideai
surprise. She removed her veil now, and
I was astonished to see how pretty she
was. I had expected she was elderly, and
this lady could not be more than twenty
five, I thought. I was thirty. I had long
before decided that she was a widow—
probably that was what her dress was
trimmed in black for.
I honored her now with a good look.
Her hair was a rich golden brown, and
gathered in a net behind, which strayed a
few careless ringlets ; none of your de
tettable water Ms, composed of black
yarn, and dirty horse hair. She had a
clear complexion, with a dash of crimson in
the cheeks, brown eyes, and a mouth that
—well I was an old bachelor then, and
did not believe in women ; but I did think
I wouldn't mind touching those red lips
with my own, just to see how it would
seem ; for in all my life, I had never kiss
ed any woman but my mother—if I except
aunt Peggy, who had the catarrh and took
Before many moments elapsed, the early
haired young man returned, and looked
daggers and butcher knives at me.
" This is my scat, sir," said he, with an
air of authority.
I beg your pardon, sir," said I. "This
lady is under my charge, and I claim-the
right to sit with her."
" Under your charge Pt said he, with a
look of surprise. "Then why the deuce
didn't you sit with her before '1"
" I—l—thought she would be more
comfortable with the seat to herself," said
I. "I am sorry to disturb you, sir, but
you can take the seat I have just left."
And I pointed with my thumb over my
shoulder, to the seat occupied by Mrs.
Thank you for the suggestion," said
the young man, " but I prefer the smok
ing car." Which proved him to be a, very
sensible fellow after all.
Well, it wasn't half so bad as it might
have been to sit beside my traveling com
panion. She did not smell so much of
musk, and she had no bundles,es,
nor bandboxes. The wind came V i tt the
crack of the window, and I fixed a shawl
to keep it out, and somehow I touched
her hand. What a thrill went through
me' It was like taking a shock from a
galvanic battery, only rather pleasanter.
Pretty soon we fell to talking. Ido not
remember what we commenced about, but
I recollect distinctly that 1 was surprised
to find how sensible she was. It was a
little curious to me where a woman ever
managed to pick up so many ideas ; and it
was still more curious how she knew just
what to say and where to say it.
To cut a long matter short, we had au
exceedingly pl easant
_ day of it ; and when
night came, Mrs. Graves went otf to sleep
with her head on my coat, and a shawl
piled up against the side of the car. But
by and by I fell to thinking that the road
was so rough and the ears jolted so, that ,',
she would not rest well, and then I won- I
dered how I could fix her better.
The lights had burned very dim—evi
dently kerosene was scarce—and the pas
sengers were all asleep, and snoring as
people never snore anywhere except in a
railway car, and—well, you see I pitied
her poor head, bobbing around so with
everyjolt, and I just drew it down to my
shoulder and put my arm around her to
keep her in place. I hope no one will be

unkind enough to blame me for so doing :
it was all the result of my naturally kind
heart, you know.
You ask me how I felt ? Why, as if I
had swallowed a couple of rainbows wash
ed down with cologne and otto of roses.
Probably I was not quite in my right
mind with the novelty of the sensation,
and that was what made me kiss her ; and
after the first kiss, somehow there didn't
seem to be any stopping place. But then
I had never had practice, and I wanted to
perfect myself; you know.
I did not sleep any that night, it seemed
as if I ought not to sleep ; somebody might
have picked my pockets, or there might
have been a collision, or something might
have happened, and so I had to kiss Mrs.
Graves now and then to keep me awake.
Next morning she awakened as fresh
and rosy as a pink just blossomed. She
asked me if I had rested well, and I told
her yes, delightfully. How pretty and
refreshed she looked. Not gray and stupid
and red eyed as everybody else did, but
just as bright as if she had slept in her
own bed at home.
I don't believe that any of us begin to

after a night's rest in a railway car, then
they never need be afraid that time will

of foam with the sun shining on it.
Suddenly there was a cry of tire! There
generally is, if ever you've noticed, when
a building gets full of people who are en
joying themselves. It is not often that
there really is any tire; but every body
thinks there is, and in the rush for safety
any quantity of bones are broken, and tl •
bone-setters get lots of jobs. It has lo

At that ominous cry, every person in
the room sprang up, and the scene which
ensued baffles description. The strong
bore down the weak—women and children
were trodden under foot, and no mercy
shown to any one. Each one was bent on
saving his own life.
I fought my way through the crowd till
I reached her side. Pale and terrified, she
clung to the arm of Charles; and he had
his arm, I noticed, around the waist of
the other woman. I took Mrs. (raves'
hand and drew her toward me. She gave
a little glad cry at the sight of me. Then
I put my arm around her and my face
close down to hers.

"Oh ! yes," she said eagerly. "It is

corridor opeliing upon a back piazza, and
where no one had thought of seeking
egress. By this time I knew there was
no fire, and I had been sure of, this from
the first; but the crush of the crowd, fran
tic, half-crazed as they were, was frightful,
and it was indeed a relief to get out of it.
The lady was terrified, and clung to me
in a way perfectly delightful; and I put
both arms around her, entirely it getting

While the congregation were collect
ed at church, on a certain occasion,
an old, dark-featured, skin-and-bone indi
vidual was seen wending his way up the
aisle, and took his seat near the pulpit.
The officiating minister was one of that
class who detested written sermons, and
as for prayers, he thought they ought to
be natural outpourings of the held.
After singing was concluded, they were,
as usual, called to prayer. The genius
we have introduced did not kneel, but
leaned his head devotionally upon his
pew. The minister began by saying:
•Ta,ther of all, in every age, by saint
and savage adored—
'"Pope!" said a low but clear voice near
The minister, after casting an indignant
glance in the irection of the voice, con
"Whose throne sitteth on the adaman
tine hills of Paradise—''
"Milton!" again interrupted the voice.
The minister's lips quivered for a
moment, but recovering himself, he be

that we are permitted once more to assem-
Me in Thy name, while others, equally
meritorious, but less favored, have been

This was too much. "Put that impu
dent rascal out," shouted the minister.
"Original," ejaculated the voice, in the '
most calm but provoking manlier.
The man or boy who gots through the
streets whooping and haw-hawing is cer
tainly a fit representative of nonsense.
And when that man or boy goes to any
place of public interest, he is sure to be not
only a nonsense, but a public nuisance.
When he goes to church, he crowds him
self into the hindmost seat, and keeps eat
ing peanuts or chewing tobacco, and com
mits sundry other acts of decorum. If he
goes to a place of amusement, he whistles,
clacks, stamps, hoots, bellows, bawls,
laughs and screams, worse than any other
idiot would, with only half the pretensions
to common sense. When you see such a
man, spot him. He is either a pickpocket
or a fool; a sot or a vagabond; a villain or
a maniac. When you see such a boy, put
him down as a candidate for promotion,
or rather degradation (for we believe the
scale descends) to any sordid vocation,
which is sordi enough to meet the wants
of his depraved tastes.
The proudest man we have met for
many a day is an old friend who has lately
been made a grandfather. Somehow
there is a beautiful sympathy between
age and youth. When the tug of life is
past, and the years begin to bear one
down towards the narrow valley, child
hood seems to come back with its sweet
simplicity and its artless affectioo. Ex
tremes meet. The child and the old man
are playmates. The second generation
appears in time to bless the declining
years of the grandfather, and bring him
under the genial influences which befit,
that period of life. Beautiful arrange
ment of Providence!
—There is wisdom as well as wit hi
some ofJosh Billings sayings, the follow
ing for instance: The art ov becoming ov
importance in the eyes of others iz not
to overrate ourself, but tew cause them
tew do it. Flattery iz like Kolone water,
tew be smelt ov, not swallowed. Living
on hope is like living on wind, a good way
to get fUll, but a poor way to get phatt.
)Benny people spend their time trieing
tew find the hole whare sin got into this
world—if two men brake through the ice
into a mill pond, they had better hunt for
some good hole tew get out, rather than
get into a long argument about the hole
they cum to fall in.
—Josh Billings says: " There is two
things in this life for which we are never
prepared, and that is twins."
