OUR FIRST QUARREL
Perhaps I have not selected the Most ap.
pmpriate title for my littlo story. 'For it
wasn't a quarrel at all. It was only . a dim.
greement. Ferdinand was a great deal too
gentlemanly and magnanimous /to quarrel
,with me, although I tried my best to get . up
a little sensation•in the tragic way! It was
when we were firstmarried, and Ferdinand
spoke; in the mist incidental and matter.of.
fact way in the world, of his mother coming
there. Then I remembered what deirr
mamma had said to . me the week beforo the
wedding, when we were stoning raisins for
the cake, and:preparitt the sugar icing.
"No matter what Inducements to may
offer, what arguments he may nse," raid
mamma, in her most impressive way,
" never Consent, my child, to be burdened
with a mother-in-law." •
" I won't, mamma," I said, earnestly.
"If yin do, it will be the And of all do l
mastics peace," added mamme
"Yes, I know it," said I.
Because,-you see, I had read in 4no ebi
about motbena-in-law,, and what td

under the most smiling exteriors. An I

,"Now," said I to itlysell, " is i the time 'to

So,I answered boldly ;
" To tell you tho unth, dear, I don't vial

I knew it was a fatal mistake; the moment

been sure, when I looked into Perdinand's

In ostrich farming the birds are divided
into two claws. The first is kept for
breeding purposes and the second for
feather bearing. The ostrich is a baby for
from four, to five years, ,after which the
aisle and female birds which are to, be . kept
for feather producing purposes most be sep

size of a turnip every other day during the
season,. the total average number being about
sixty. They are laid in a nest made of sand,
which, on the farm, is , placed under cover.
For Mattel few mouths the chickens are

months old they become hardy and' do not

to lady readers to know which are - eonsider-

A DOOR itiIMDENCE.
The Louisville Couiiir-Journal: relates
sow an old German introduced a
court with a customer's account on'it. The
snit was one brought by an old German who
keeps a grocery and bar-room against a
rather :tough - citizen 'who owed him a bar
bill. When the old man was placed on the
stand ho stated his case in broken \English,
but in a very straightforward, truthful man
ner, and said that the-defendant had bed a
customer at his bar and, received credit, but
-refused to pay his bill when the time arrived.
Ile was then asked by the Court if he bad
kept a regular account , of the amount; and
was-requested *how his bill. This seem
ed to puzzle the old man some, and, after
scratching his bead in silent deliberation;
for a few, minutes he said that he. had . kept
an account, but had left it at his store, and
asked permission to go off and bring it s
The permission was granted,and he start 4
away on a trot, and in a shoit while came
back, puffing and blowing,_ but , wearing a
satisfied look on his face, and carrylig a
ktrgeiiine door on his shoulder. AU 'in the
. were considerably astonished at this,
but he quietly seated himself and, taking
the door arose his knees, he pointed to a
number of charcoal marks on it, which be
stated was his bill. When asked to explain,
he said that whenever the defendant got a
drink he marked it down on the door. If
the drink was beer he made a short mark
and if whiskey a long one. Hither', count
ed up the marks and they agreed with the
bM he had presented. Thin evidence was a
clincher and the old German won his ease
tmid the smiles of the spectators.

- It mutt be admified that with the growth
of this country and with its advancenient in
civilization crime should have decreased. It
cannot truthfully be said that this is the
ca[se. Without seeking other causes, it can
be ``asserted, without fear of contradiction,
that,enuseason forthis is the criminal habit
of carrying concealed weapons. We use the
word "criminal" adsito Ey, for whatever is
contrary to law is criminal. We dcr not
consider it, the mark of a brave man to carry
concealed weapons, but rather the' contrary.
Of curse there are circumstances 'in which
carrying them is justitisble, but for a man
to put on his pistol in the morning as regu.
iatly as he puts on his coat does no credit
ta.lum as a citizen nor as is man. Especial.
ly is this.% dangerous habit the young.
Many ofitem think that it is manly: Pom
