A QUIET EVENING.
'n Evcnlnc Experience of Mr. Itodwell.
of Kelson Street.
ICopyrightcd by Leo & Shcparil. Boston, and
published by special arrangement with tlicm.I
Mr. Bodwell, of Kelson street, sat
clown for n quiot communion with hia
family and the newspaper on Thursday
'evening. All the children but the eldest
had eaten supper, and ha was industri
ously engaged at that task. Mr. Bod
well drew np to tho lamp, selected an in
teresting article that would undoubtedly
engross hia wife, and commenced to ro
produco it, while she, patient woman,
kept her eyes on tho children, as the
father was very sensitive to foreign
noises when engaged in reading. Bod
well had got down tho column some
-twelvo lines, and was just luying him
self out on tho big words, when ono of
the girls, while taking unusual precau
tion to step around a scuttle of coal,
actually stepped into it, and a bewilder
ing crash followed.
''Merciful heaven!" shouted Bodwell,
"what was that?" Mrs. Bodwell ex
plained, tho other children tittered, and
the girl, being a wise child, knew her
own father, and sagaciously left. Again
isoawell picked up tho paper, and giv-
ut spitetul twist, resumed tho ar

handled the subject soon conquered tsort
well's mind. Ho became wholly ab
sorbed in tho matter, and at ono point
he involuntarily brought down hia
clinched hand with a force that amply
expressed his own feelings and very
forcibly stirred up thoso of one of the
children, who had caught tho full effect
of tho descending fist.
"Will somebody cut mo open?" plead
ed the despairing man, as ho caught up
tho shrieking offspring and fell to rub
bing its back, whilo tho mother dashed
after tho camphor, and tho other chil
dren, awestruck by tho affair, rushed
into tho hall to laugh. It waa full five
minutes before the injured ono was qui
eted, and by that timo Mrs. Bodwoll ex
pressed a de6iro to hear no more of the
articlo; but Bodwell was determined
then to finish it anyway, and he resumed
the paper. During tho progress of the
next reading a littlo girl came in to bor
row a flatiron, and the mother got up to
give it to her, moving about so quietly
that Bodwell waa not interrupted. The
eldest boy was still at his supper. He
waa a good boy. Whenever ho wanted
anything ho stood up and reached for it
himself, and did it very quietly.
Just as tho littlo girl departed with
the llatiron, tho heir, who had his fa
ther's boots on, stood up to reach ovei
tho table for tho sixth tart. The mothet
in returning detected tho vacant chair.
and fearing somo one would fall over it
and make another disturbance, she
thoughtfully moved it back to the wall,
and just got by us the heir settled back
with the coveted tart, and finding noth
ing but tmn air to receive him made
desperate effort to savo himself, but
waa too late, and cainodowu on the (loot
with ft crash that mado every timber in
thehouso sqncak.and tho horrified parent
on looking up, was nearly petrified with
amazement to see las own boots clawin
madly among tho dishes, whilo tho dis
tracted occupant was vainly endeavoring
to extricate himselttrom under the table,
That wound up the evening's entertain
ment The disgusted Bodwell put on
his coat and lied down street, leaving
tno very soro and mortiiied heir to sup
press the mirth indiscreetly displayed by
tho other children as he best could with
tho ugencies at hand.
Can Point "With Pride.
All good Republicans in the stato
should vote for Gregg and Morrison in
November, and we believe they will
for these men represent the principles of
government which have been so bene
ficial to the state and nation for the past
thirty years. Gregg and Morrison are
men to whom the Republicans of this
state can point with pride, for they are
of the stock which makes the best of
public servants honest, sincere men
whoso characters aro above reproach.
whose whole lives have been sient in
honest industry, in good deeds for the
umiun auu xur luuir leapeuuvo com
munities, and whose axperieuco has
been such as to fit them for the duties
which the Republicans propose to elect
tuein to pcriorni.

As Hanna lay in a dozing conditid,-. ba

of burning timber. Gradually recovering
ins senses, llanna aroso from tho bod and

Hannah aroused his wifo and chi'd. They

unconscious of tho danger at thoir doors.
The family in one of tho housos next to tho

window panes of thoir sleeping apart

to arouse them. Having alarmed
tho neighborhood Hannah returned
to his houso and tried to mako his
