HOW I WON KY WIFE
Jessie Bale was the merriest, pretti
est, most provoking dlughter of Eve
that ever existed—at least I thought so
—though perhaps I was "not an impartial
judge, as I must confess .1." was deeply in
love,—and, in fact, I don't believe I
could remember a time when I was
in love with her. It certainly' was , not
when - a Youngster of tiveleki I took her
under' my eipecitil care, feeling then
prouder of roj , curly=headed charge ifiiin
:I could now of a mine gold; nor
when'a tall; awkward boy of sixteen' I
'brit ventured to ask for her company
home from church ; nor still later, when,
after four , ydars' absence, I returned to
my native town, and set up as a surgeon
in the bodge where Di. MOpre's twine
had been since my cUrliest reeollection.

boo fine morning, we were aboilf

before she reached the ground. No
winner was she in safety , than, with a
deep grnan, 1 staggered back against
the fence, my right , arm hanging hel p.

Jessie was beside me in a• moment:
"Oh, Will, ehe said piteonsiy, - "that

SERMON ON TEETH.—Did you ever
think of what inestimable value is a
sound, well-formed set of teeth to man,
and more especially to woman—what
influence they have upon the character,
often through life ? Independent of
their animal uses, their moral effect is
greater. than most people suppose.
For instance, take two young girls of
fifteen ; say, the one with beautiful
teeth, the other with a very defective
set. We will suppose they have equal
beauty of person, and are equal in all
intellectual endowments. You will
find a vast difference in the develop
ment of character as they mature into
womanhood. The one with splendid
teeth will soon know that they are the
admiration of all, and we are apt to
dwell upon what we are most admired
for. She .will court every opportunity
to show her teeth ; ready to smile, and
laugh and be gay; while the other, un
fortunately, will be constantly Mold of
her misfortune 1 "What a beautiful
girl, but such teeth :" She, unlike the
more fortunate one, will try - to conceal
her teeth ; will laugh as seldom as possi
ble ; and, when she does laegb, it is a
suppressed laugh—a sort of packer of
