SY AN. IRRITABLE NAN
CONVERSATION AT THE BREAKFAST TABLE.
"My dear," I said to the lady who was
seated opposite me at the breakfast table, and
who had the good fortune to be my wife, "if .
there be one thing I dislike more than another,
it is to receive a cup of coffee that looks as if
it had been sipped from before it reached my
hands. Have I not often asked you to fill my
cup to within an eighth of an inch of the rim,
and not give it to me half or three quarters
"You are as particular as an old bachelor,"
the estimable lady replied, " and if I bad
known it, before I married you, this day would
not have seen me your wife. There, sir, is
your cup of coffee. 'I hope it will suit you."
" Good gracious :" I exclaimed, as I took
the cup, " now you've managed to run it over.
You must certainly be aware that if there be
one thing I dislike more than another, it is to
find slops in my saucer."
" Well, if you will ibsist upon my filling the
cup, you must expect that , sometimes I shall
spill it over; besides, your finding fault with
me does no good, but makes me nervous, and
causes my hand to tremble, so that I only
wonder there is any coffee left in the cup. But
here is a clean saucer, in place of the one you
Having effebted this . important chanty, I
tasted 'the contents of my cup. I was evident
to me that•there was no. sugar in it. I tasted
it again to make certain of the fact. Then I
said to her:
You have neglected to put sugar in my
coffee. If there be one thing I dislike more
than another, it is coffee unsweetened."
"I am certain," replieSmy estimable spouse,
"that I did sweeten it. I. don't think you
have stirred it."-
I know I have," I answered.
"Net with your spoon," said the provoking
woman, "for it is perfectly dry ; perhaps, how
ever, you used your fork. "
"Pshaw 1" was all the answer I vouchsafed
to this remark.
"Now, I declare," I said, after having stirred
' and sipped my coffee, "you have made it too
sweet. If there be one thing I dislike more
than another, it is t o have my coffee taste like
"Let me put•more milk with it, then !" said
the obliging woman.,
"No, I thank you," I replied, "I don't care
to have my stomach turned into a dairy. . If
there be one thing I dislike more than another,
it is milk. I gave up milk diet when I cut my
first teeth." . •
"It is to be hoped that you will give up the
habit of fault-fmding, which you possess in an
eminent degree, when you come to cut your
wisdom teeth, though no one can tell when that
will be." •
"Thank you." I replied ; "you will proba
bly be the first who will know it when that
"And a happy day it will be for me," she
answered, with provoking calmness. " Few
know, though, how much unhappiness your
constant fault-finding causes me. Nothing I
do seems to give you any satisfaction. There
isn't a, moment elapses. while you are in the
house, save when you're asleep, but you - are
thus occupied. The -- t - rutirtsc 1 - --harendways•
been too indulgent with you, and humor you
when I ought not. I didn't commence right in
the first place. I should have paid no attention
to your whims, but studied my own convenience
and comfort, instead of seeking to make every
thing smooth arid pleasant for you. Then I
would have got along much better. Oh, you
men are great tyrants, and if a woman yields
to you in the least, you .follow up your . advan
tage, and Rend her will to yours, and crush her
spirit to the earth, till, by-and-by, you break
"My dear, I will thank you for another cup
of coffee," I said, passing my cup to her ; "but
be careful not to run it over, nor get it too
sweet, nor put ,in too much milk. What an
intolerable steak this is." I added ; "it is tough
enough to hive been cut from one of the cattle
pastured upon a thousand hills more than a
thousand years ago. If there be one thing I
dislike more than another, it is a tough beef
' " You,ordered it yourself, from- the market,
so you needn't find fault with me on account'of
it. I knew it was tough the moment I looked
at it." .
" Then why didn't you send it back ?" I
"Because,,as it was your selection, I sup
posed you, wanted a tough one ; besides, if I
had returned it, you would have found fault
with me for doing.so."
"Well, I can't eat it. that's certain," I said:
"so it had better be taken off of the table. I
shan't throw any more money away on beef
"Oh, it will answer for hash," said my eco
nomical wife, " and you can have- it for din
"Hash ! I exclaimed. "If - there be one
thing I dislike more than another, it is hash.
Hash is only At for children and old people
wfthout teeth. Besides, it is a popular dish at
boarding schools and- boarding houses: and
when I- was a boy, and afterward, while a
bachelor, I at c. my share of it, and I'm not
going to eat any more. Ne, we'll have a turkey
for dinner." •
" Very well," said my spouse, "a turkey let
it be. Shall I see to getting one ?"
" I think not," I answered. " The fact is,
that all the turkeys you select, turn out to be
like the celebrated one of - which Job was the
reputed owner—poor and tough. No, I'll buy
the turkey, and you can cook it."
" Very well," said the imperturbable lady.
"But how will you have it cooked ?"
"Oh, any way • suit yourself," 1 answered.
" Then I think I will roast it," she replied,
"Roast it !" I exclaimed. " That is just
like you. Now, you know that if there be one
thing I dislike more than another' it is to have
a turkey roasted." ••
"Very well, then," 2 - said the accommodating
woman, "I will boil it."
"Boil it!" I said, aghast. "Boil soup, boil
lamb chops, boil cherries, if you like, but never,
for me, boil a turkey."
"Pray, then, how will you have it cooked ?
Only tell me, and it shall be done."
"Why—why—well—fricassee it, of course,"
I answered, triumphantly.
"Very well," said the lady, looking, however,
as if it were not very well.
"Why can't you say something else besides
'very well ?' " I asked. "What a provoking
woman you are, to be.sure."
"Not half so provoking as you are," she
"Now, then, you wish t o make me angry, I
suppose; but you can't do it," I said. "I have
put up with everything all through breakfast,
and I am not going to be provoked just as I am
finishing." • <,. •

In a late learned work on the "Art of Pro
longing Life," the opinion is expressed from
all the facts which the author has been able to
collect,- that the duration of life in the time of
Moses, the Greeks and the Romans, was inva
riably the sameas at present; and that the age
of the earth has no influence on the Itingevity•of
its inhabitents, - that difference excepted which
may be produced by the cultivation of its sur
face and the difference of climate that may,
Instances of great age have occurred among
various nations of ancient andmodern times:
The wise Solon attained the age of eighty;
Epimenides, of Crete, is said to have lived r
hundred and fifty-seven years; Sophoeles,
Pindar and Anacreon lived to the age of eighty ;
Democritus lived one hundred and nine years,
and Diogenes ninety ; Zeno, the founder of the
Stoics,, attained nearly to the age of one hun
dred years, and Plato to that of eight Y-one.
Among the Romans, M. Valerius Corvinimitas
above the age of one' hundred ; Fabius and
Cato, above ninety ; Tercutia, the wife of CI T .
cero, one hundred and three. There are several
instances of Roman actresses who became old,,
a piece of good fortune Which their"profession
in these days can rarely boast. OntiLuceja
performed a whole century,' and made her ap
pearance publicly when in ber hundred and
twelfth year. Galeria Copiola was a 4rightly
damsel of ninety when she appeared u'pen the
boards. According to a valuable collection in
regard to the duration of life, in the time of
the Emperor Vespasian, preserved by Pliny
from the records of the census, an unquestion
ably creditable source, it appears that in the
year when that numbering of the people took
- place, the seventy-sixth of 'our era, there were
living in that part of Italy which lies between
the Appenines and the Po one hundred and
twenty-four men who had attained the age of
one hundred years and upwards, viz : fifty
four of one hundred, fifty-seven of a hundred
and ten, two of -a hundred and twenty-five,
four of a hundred and thirty, four of fro& one
-hundred-' thirty-five• to..one hundred" and:
:hirty•seven, and three of one hundred and
forty. Besides these there were in Parton
three men of one hundred and twenty, and two
of a hundered and thirty ; at Forentia a woman -
of one hundred and thirty-two ; and in. Velle
jacium, a small town near Placentia; six per
sons who had attained to the age of a hundred
and ten t and four to that of a hundred and
An extraordinary number of instances of
longevity is found among hermits and monks.
The Apostle John reached the age of ninety
three, the hermit Paul, celebrated for the se
, vere austerity of his life, to a hulnked and
thirteen, St. Anthony to a hundred. ,asid, Aye,. .
and St. David to a hundred end fedi six
Athanasius, Jerome, Theodric Archbisbp` of
Canterbury, and others, exceeded the 'age of
The most extraordinary instances of great,
age are to be found in those classes who, amidst
bodily labor and in the open air, lead- a simple
life. The most remarkable of these cobs is
the familiar one of Henry Jenkins, of? York
shire, England, who died in the year 1670. At
the time of his death he was one hundred and
sixty-nine years old. When he was above the
age of a hundred he was able to swim across
Next to Jenkins was another Englishman,
Thomas Parr. of Shropshire, the servant .of a
farmer who maintained himself by daily labor.
When above a hundred and twenty years of
age he married his second wife. She lived •
with him twelve years, and asserted that during
that time he never betrayed any . signs of infir
mity or age. He performed all his usual work
till his one hundred and thirtieth year, and was
accustomed even to thresh. The King, having
heard of his great age, sent for him to London,
and his journey thither, the change in his
mode of life, and his feasting and royal treat
ment at Court, it is thought, brought about his •
end. He died at the age of a hundred and fifty—.
two years and nine months, and had lived
under nine kings of England. The remarkable
fact is mentioned that when the body of this
man was opened by Doctor Harvey, his:inter
nal organs were found to be in the moat petL
feet state, nor was the least symptom nf decay
to be discovered in them. He died merely of
plethora. A great grandson of Parr lived to:1k,
the age of one hundred and three. .
A Dane named Drackenberg, died in 1772 in
the one hundred and forty-sixth year of his.
age. J. Effinghan did in Cornwall, in 1757,
in the one hundred and fourteenth year of his
age. Sweden, Norway, Denmark, England and
Ireland -have, in modern times, produced the
oldest men. In England, during the seven,
years, 1838—'44, there died at the age of one
hundred and upwards seven hundred and
eighty-eight persons, namely. two hundred and
fifty six males, and five hundred and thirty.
two females-4ving an average of one hun
dred and twelve and shelf annually.
In the examples given of extraordinary old
age there seems to have been every variety of
cbaracter, from the peaceful and moderate to
the violent and passionate. Some were persons
o f g reat abstinence and self-denial, others en,
joyed all the good things of life; and there are
not wanting cases of extreme old age, though
they are very rare, among persons of intemper- i
