great general restored the Emperor of
China to his throne. The Emperor, in
his gratitude, gave his daughter In mar
riage to the son of the general, Things
went well for a time, as w ith all young
married people, said Mr. Wu, and luen

The young husband told his wife that
she must nut assume too much haughti
ness of spirit, for his father had put her
father on the throne and sustained him
there in the exercise of his despotic
The young wife replied that her fath
er, the Emperor, could behead the gen

uccount, and o followed much strife,
into which the parents of the young
couple themselves wolvdrawn.
Finally all concerned appealed to the
Emperor fora decision of the vexatious
questions that hail brought so much
misery Into the young lives.
The Emperor, who was a wise and
good man, replied : "There are time s
when it is best for fathers-in-law and
mothers-in-law to he deaf and dumb."
Mr. Wu told the young students that
w hile it seemed very hard now to be
deaf and dumb, they might find it a
very useful affliction when they gol
older and bad to deal with the troubles
of matrimony. He added also, amid
amusement, that the sign languuge was
very advantageous in the prosecution
of a courtship. Nobody could hear or
