TAKING THE WHONG SLIT :
ami Mrs. Frank Hopkins were
JlyJl supremely happy.
Their condition was ns felicitous ns
that of a well-mated pair of robins ou
the lath day ot February.
l or it was the day after their marriage
they arrived at Eagle Hotel, tind were
shown up to No. 15 a pleasant room on
the second floor. Nothing was wanted to
make them happy.
Mrs. Hopkins had two new silks, and
a charming braided under-.sk irt, and a
real cashmere shawl, and a love of a bon
net, and what more could a sensible wo
man require? And then such a hus
band ? Frank was the very pink of the
masculine garden. And he had such a
beautiful mustache just the shade that
blonde Aggie admired black ones were
so fierce. Dear me, she said, with a m-et-
ty shiver, she should always feel a horror
of a man with a black mustache.
And Frank looked so splendid in his
new clothes. A blue coat and plaid blue
and green pantaloons, and white vest,
and an unexceptional necktie. Surely
there was not such another " net up" in
And Frank thought Airine a little less
than an angel, and a great deal better
adapted to make luni happy than one of
those winged, etherial creatures that are
supposed to bo the quintessence of all
that is charming. So you see, dear read
er, everything was going merry as a mar
I n the same hotel on the samo floor,
and in the adjoining room, which had
been constructed to bo let with the room
of Mr. aud Mrs. Hopkins, as a suite, and
was connected by a large press Mr.
John Franklin Swift, a young gentleman
from the country, was lodging.
John retired to rest early, and not be
ing much accustomed to the usage of the
city, concluded to do as he did at homo
rise when ho first awoke. And as he
awoke at live, and this was in the wiutcr,
he was a little early.
He was afraid of the gas in fact he
did not understand its arrangements so
he decided to dress in the dark, and stop
ping into the clothes press, he took down
his clothes and got into thorn. He
thought the pantaloons a little tight in
the waistband, and the coat felt singular
ly uncomfortable about the arm-holes, but
then it was a cool morning, ho reasoned,
and broadcloth would bo a little stiff
Mr. Swift, having appareled himself,
went out for a morning walk.
As fate would have it he found em
ployment that morning, for the first time
since coming to the city ; and so ho off
with his coat and went to work but not
until he had discovered that ho was , in
the wrong suit of clothes.
" It's mighty queer," he said to him
self, "but I reckon I got 'em in that
press that was between the chambers, and
whatever slept in the other room is
wearing mine. It will come right again
at night, and they nro a slashing nice
looking set of rigging ! Declare for it!
Hook more like a gentleman than I ever
Mcanwhilo Mr. Hopkins rose just bo
foro sunrise, as he had to do, in ordor to
reach the early train, which left for a
country town about thirty miles away,
where he had to 30 that day on important
business. And as ho was to leave his
wife at the Eagle Hotel during his ab
sence, and the day would seem so long to
her because ho was away, he thought best
not to waken her, but dress in semi-ob
scurity taking his clothes from the clos
et whore ho had hung them the previous
night, liy the timo ho had got himself
invested in them, ho had discovered the
cxchang'!, but thcro was not a moment
to loso, ti nd he could wear them fur that
day, trustiug to good luck in getting his
own garments again in return.
Mr. Swift returned to thehotel at night,
cyerybcid r was exceedingly deferential to
him. The waiter bowed to him as re
spectfully as it was in his power to do,
and open cd the door of parlor remark
ing: " She's there, sir."
" yho's there ?" asked Mr. Swift.
" Your lady, sir. And she's had a sad
day of it, I'm thinking. She's cried
more than once at your absence."
Swift woodered who could be crying
for him, as he luid no lady acquaintance
in the city ; but being remarkably fond
of the ladies, lie had no objection to
seeing this one who was plunging into
grief 011 his nccount.
Mrs. Ifop'iutis was sitting on the sofa,
and the gas .'jot having been lighted, the
twilight of the placo favored the decep
tion, and she took him for her husband.
There was a resemblance between the
two men and that immaculate suit of
clothes of course it was lie.
She sprang up and was in his arms in
" O, my dearest, dearest Frank !" she
said, " where have yen been 't How
could you stay away from your own Aggie
so long?" and she began to put on the
kisses in a way Frank S if't thought per
fectly delightful. Swift returned them
with interest, feeling very much like one
bee in a whole hive of honey.
" My dear Frank, don't kiss so hard.
You dreadful man ! You bavn't shaved
to-day ! You ought to bo as hanied !"
" Never mind that I" cried Swift ; " I
should forget everything if I were with
" Why, Frank how drcac'ful hoarse
you are. Y'ou have a cold, my darling.
I am so sorry ! Here, have a peppermint
lozenge," and she put one into his mouth
in such a way that Swift wished he might
have a perpetual cold, aud be forever fed
on peppermint lozenges.
' Where did you get this odious smell
of cigars ? I wish you would never
" I never will, my darling.
Just then the door opened, and th ere
was a spirited altercation going on in the
hall between the waiter and a man with a
very red face, who wore a long-tailetl coat
and a pair of very baggy pantaloon!'..
" I tell you she's my wife, and if you
don't stand aside and let mo pass, I'M
knock your eyes in farther than they are
now," and the belligerent speaker das.hed
into the room.
"Jupiter !" ciied'he, at the sight of
Mrs. Hopkins with her head lying on the'
shoulder of Mr. Swift. " Can I believe
my eyes ! My wife in the arms of a par
amour! Good Heavens !"
" Your wife !" cried Swift.
"My wife; lam the lady's husband,
you villain I
"Good gracious! cried Mrs. Hopkins,
'; the man is crazy ! My husband indeed,
sir ! my husband don't wear a coat that
was cut in the ark, and pantaloons that
look like meal bags. Oh, Frank," cling
ing to Mr. Swift, " protect mo from
" Let her go this instant !" roared Mr.
Hopkins, " or I'll be the death of you."
" Don't let him touch me !" cried the
lady. " Oh, heavens, only see the horrid
coat. And he's got the expression of a
"Murderer! Jupiter! Thisfrom'my
wifo ! 'Tis too much. I'll bo the death
of that vile scoundrel ; and then madanij
wo will live apart henceforth and forev
er!" and seizing a heavy candlestick from
the mantle he made a dive at Mr. Swift.
Swift grappled with him Hopkins
trod on tho tail of his coat and down ho
went and dragged Swift with him.
" Oh, gracious mo'!" screamed Mrs.
Hopkins, "he'll kill Frank I can see
murder in his eye," and woman-like sho
wanted to have a finger in tho pie, and
with a huge copy of Shakespeare she fell
to beating poor Frank on tho back.
" You stole my clothes, you dirty
wretch you !" exclaimed Hopkins
"Aud you stole mine!" exclaimed
Swift, " my swallow-tail, that was made of
0110 that my grandfather was married in,
and tho butter-nut trowserloous that my
Aunt Sally contrived out of a bed blan
ket. And you left me your tie-bald af
fairs, and they're so straight that I've
been afraid to stoop all day, and nothing
in tho pockets of 'em but u quizziu": class
.and a bottle of biled down muskquash !"
Hopkins, making a grab at the gorgeous
plaids; ""off with them or take tho conse
quences. It's bad enough to find you
hugging my wife, but to hear you abuse
them pantaloons. It's suflie;r.nt. in
a minister swear. -The best fit in the
United States. Cut by Jenkens, right
from Paris !" and every word was empha
sized by a punch in the ribs.
" Darn Jenkins nnd darn Paris !" cried
Swift in a rage. "If I had a pair of
breeches that fit mo in tho waistband ns
these do, I'd bo tho death of tho man
that sp'ilt 'cm."
Mrs. Hopkins began to swell a rat.
Sho drew back from pounding Hopkins,
and took a survey of the parties.
"Good gracious! cried she. "It's
Frank himself but tho other one's got his
clothes. O. lnrdv me? !" nnd rIio fnintod
but recovered herself instantly when she
saw her husband about to throw some wa
ter in her lace.
' Don't. Frank," don't! sho exclaimed,
" it Cost me a half dollar tn trot. m fnrn-
hcad enameled, there's a quarter's worth
of gold powder in my hair. I shall be
octter in a minute.
So she was. and the mistake was fnllv
explained. Hopkins and Swift shook
hands, retired and changed clothes.
llicy became the best ot friends, and
in duo time Swift ninrricd Mrs I Lint-Iny'
sister, and after a season he too rejoiced
in a pair of plaid pantaloons, cut by Jen
kins, and a bobtailed coat cut by Jenkins
Katkcr Absent Minded.
DOCTOR J0S1AII CAMPBELL,
who lived for many years on the
Western Ilescrvo, in Ohio, was a skill
ful physician, but withal, one of tiie most
eccentric and absent minded persons in
the world, except Margaret, his wife, and
she was fully his equal. One summer
morning the doctor was caught in a tre
mendous shower, which drenched him to
tho skin. It suon cleared off, however,
and Dr. Josh rode into his own yard,
where he took the dripping saddle from
his horse and let him go adrift iuto the
pasture. The saddle he placed on a stout
log of wood which was cicvated some
four feet from tho ground on two posts,
where the doctor had begun to build a
platform to dry his peaches on.
After he got the saddle fixed so it would
dry,he took the bridle and putting it ou the
end of the log, he stretched out the reins,
hitching them to the horn of the saddle,
and went to change his wet clothesand get
breakfast. Josiah, jr., and Margaret, jr.,
were away from homo on a visit and so
tho two seniors sat down to their morning
meal. When they were about half through,
Jim Atwood, a farmer, who lived about
eight miles distant camo in, telling the
doctor ho wished he would go over to his
house, as ho reckoned he might be want
ed over there, and then went off to the
village in a hurry, after some ueccessary
When tho doctor finished his meal, he
took his saddle-bags, and out he went in
the yard, where he deliberately mount
ed his saddle aud set out in the imagin
ation, for Jim Atwod's.
For a long time ho rodo on in silence,
with his eyes intently fixed upon Da
chau's Practice, which lay open on the
saddle beforj him. At length ho began
to feci the effjet of the fierce rays of
mid-day sun, and upon looking up from
bis book lie discovered a comfortable
looking house close by hiin, upon which
he sang out lustily for a drink of water.
Aunt Margaret, who had been for the
last two hours very busy in tho garden
soon made her appearance with a pitcher
of milk, and after the thirsty stranger
had taken a long draught, they entered
itito animated conversation, the doctor
launching out into rapturous praises of the
scenery about the place, the neatness of
the buildings tho line orchard of peach
and apple trees; and tho lady, who had
caught a cliinpsc of the saddle-bags, made
a great many inquires about the health of
tho neighborhood, etc.
The doctor finally took his leave of the
lady assuring her that ho would call on
his return and have some further conver
sation with her, as sho reminded him so
much of his wile, who, ho was sure, would
be very happy to make her acquaintance.
Tho lady turned to enter tho house,
and the doctor had just gathered up tho
reins, when Jim Atwood dashed up to
the gato with his horse all in a lather of

Rich for a Moment.
MIE British shin I? rif tannin, wnw
wrecked off tho coast of Brazil, and
had on board a largo consignment of
Spanish dollars. In the hope of saving,
some of them a number of barrels were
brought on deck, but tho vessel went to
pieces so fast that tho only hope for life
was in taking at once to tho boat. The
first boat was about to push off when a
young midshipman went back to see if
any one was still on board. To his sur
prise there sat a man on deck wiih a
hatchet in bis band, with which he had
broken several of the casks, the contents
of which he was now heaping up about
" What are you doing there ?" shouted
the youth. "Don't you know the ship
is fast going to pieces?"
" The ship may," said tho man : ' I have
lived a poor wretch all my life, aud I am
determined to die rich."
His remonstrances were answered only
by another flourish of the hatchet, and he
was left to his fate.
We should count such a person a mad
man, but he has too many imitators.
Men seemed determined to die rich, at
all hazards. Least of all risks they count
the chance of losing the soul in the strug
gle. And yet the only riches we can
hug to our bosom with joy in our dying
hour are the riches of grace through Jesus
Christ, which we must make ours before
the dark hour comes.
A Tilliy Sermon to Young Men..
Y'ou nro the architects of your own-
strength of body and soul. Take for your
motto, scli-rehancc, honesty and industry;
for your star, faith, perseverance aud
pluck ; and inscribe on your banner,
"lie just and tear not," Keep at the
helm and steer your own ship. Strike
out. Think well of yourself, Fire above
the mark you intend to hit. Assume
your position. Don t practice excessive
humility; you can't got above your level
water don't run up hill put potatoes
in a cart over a rouirh road and the small
ones will g to the bottom. Encnry
invincible determination, with a right
motive, are the levers that rule the world
The great art of commanding is to take
a fair share of the work. Civility costs
nothing and buys everything. Don't
drink ; don't smoke ; don't swear; don't
gamble; don't steal; don't deceive; don't
tattle. Be polite ; be generous ; he kind.
Study hard; play hard. Head good
books. Love your fellow-men ; love your
country and obey the laws; love truth;
love virtue. Always do what your con
science tells you to bo a duty, and leave
the consequence with God Ex.
Not iu Human Jiature.
An estimable lady, a personal and be-,
loved friend of mine, said to me, when
urged to forgive an injury: "It is not
in human nature to forgive injuries: as
goading as these." Y'ou are right, my
friend, I replied, it is not in human na
ture; but it is in the grace of Christ. He
has charged us : " Love your enemies ;
bless them that curse you ; do good to
them that hate you ; aud pray for them
which despitefully use you and persecute
you ; that ye may bo the children of your
Father that is in Heaven." The lady
had a long struggle with herself, but
through the grace of Christ sheoveroame.
Sho forgave from tho heart, and was a
happier woman, and a moro exemplary
Christian. These virtues are not imagi
nary, nor nro they beyond Christiau at
tainment. XSa?" Napoleon Bonaparte wrote to Gen
