Quick as lightning the husband laid
down tbo culinnries, cluspad his hands
together and lilted his tearlul eyes
heavenward and prayed from tho in

'I fliaok Theo, Heavenly Falhor,

'It ia tbt aim of my lifo whatever I
do tJ do it well, and hupe to improve

lention to be thankful to God tor the
many blessings that Ho so bountifully
showers upon us. We will both of us

Yes. we will be just like parents,
cheerful, industrious, self-rely iog, char.
itablo and saving.'
That ia my view of lifo, but I must
be off to ray work. Shall I advertise
for a girl ?'
'No' was the prompt reply : 'Moth
er says that a servant if ill corns per
woek, wagos, brntrti, and what she
wastes, at least six dollars that would
be nearly one-third of ynur weekly
earnings Thank God, I can do with
out a servant girl, aud save that much

There is a parting, kiss between

ows of tho tress, tho crowd gathered
around their victim and fcasleJ their
drunkon eyes upon bis pallid face, trem
bling lips nnd tottering limbs, while
our-es and blasphemies disturbed tho
quietude of the uioning oir. As tho
first gray stroaks ol dawo shot upwarJ
from the eastern sky, n gravo was
scooped out of tho sand by n lot of men
who appoarod at that moment, more
like demons than human beings.
Minding tho wrttob's Lauds and feel
together, thoy threw him iuto tho hole.
Two or throo of the stoutest stood
upon his body while tho hole was boiag
tilled up, lifting, thoir feet every now

rising sand. As the sand weut ia
tho-io men actually ditooed upon the
smothering victim beneath, and the
whole crow! broke out in aa uuaarthly
song. At length, whto the bolo wat
lillud up and bespod over, a "stag

vlgulantors carried on the revel u pt il
the tun rose above the horizoa, when
tbey hurried to thoir skiffs and disap

Mississippi shore.

thoroughly dry before freesing weath

play ho hard a-in you. I've lived
und truvelel mound sumo, Boh, and
and I've found out that as soon us fulks
thought you hell a weak hand, they'd
all buck n,'io you Blrmig. So when
you're sort'r weak, keep a bold look
but play caul ious ; bestitisflel wilh u
point. Many's tho hand I've seen 'em
cuuhro cause they played for too much.
Keep your eyes wjll skinned, Hob;
don't let them nig you ; recollect the
game luys as much with tbo head ns
with the hands, lie tempera's, nover
get druuk, for then, no mutter how
good your hand, you won't know how
to play it; bulb bowers and tho eco
won't save you ; for there's certain t
be n "miss deul'' or something wrong.
And another thin, li ib, ll.U was
spoken in a low lone j, don't go t'

tho worse for you ; you might have
three and oury a trump. I dou't buy
discard 'era all ; ifyou get hold of one

nor slip cards or nig, for then you can't
look your man in the lueo, and wh.'ii

now, Hob, farewoll ; remember what
