COAXING FOR A WIFE.
OLD HEZEKIAH GATHEHEM was
a solid man of Boston.
Like a great many other men similar
ly fixed, by reason of his wealth, t.l
Jatherem was as . conceited as a collegti
student, as contrary as a drove of Kan
sas mules, and as proud as a young par
son ; and when In the fullness of time,
Jack Furlaway, the Captain of the little
brig Cariboo, asked him for the hand of
his daughter Jenny, old Gatherem's face
grew as red as the good port wine he was
In the habit of drinking, and nothing
but Captuln Jack's rather muscular ap
pearance saved hira from being kicked
across the street into the barber's shop
" What, sir, you you, the captain of
a miserable little West India sugar
drogher marry my daughter V"
"Certainly, sir. Wouldn't think of
taking her without marrying her,"
said Captain Furlaway, coolly.
Old Gatherem rang the bell violently,
and ordered the servant to show Jack to
" Don't trouble yourself, Mr. Ebony,"
.remarked our maritine friend placidly.
" I rather labor under the delusion that
I can manage to find my way out alone.
Good day, pa ; -hope to find you In a bet
ter humor some other time. I won't
object to Jenny on account of her near
But Jack departed rather ruefully for
all that, for bonny Jenny Gatherem had
gotten him fast tangled In her golden
brown hair, and It had been his waking
dream during many a lonely watch on
deck, and as the little clipper Cariboo
danced merrily over the prosphorescent
waves of Old Ocean, to make her Mrs.
Furlaway, and ho had even gone so far
as to be a very dutiful and respectful
son-in-law to that disagreeable old per
son, her futher.
Jenny met him just around tho cor
ner, like a faithful little sweetheart, and
Jack dolorously enough told her the
direful result of his interview.
" Never mind, Jack, dear," said Jen
ny, consolingly. " Something will be
certain to turn up more favorable. Walt
patiently, and if tho worst muHt come,
And the young damsel's eyes bparkled
in a manner which presaged no very
good luck to tho solid old person of
So Captain Jack Furlaway squared the
yards of his skimmer, the Cariboo, for
the West Indies, and by way of giving
vent to Ids ill feeling toward Mr. Heze
kial Gatherem, carried sail on bis craft,
until the water rolled In torrents over
her sharp bows, and the old salts won
dered what tho deuce had come over the
" old man" that ho cracked on so much
dimttyl and, finally, settled down into
the belief that he was racing for a heavy
bet with the famous Fiery Cross, whoso
long black hull and towering pile of
canvass had. lain . on their windward
quarter much longer than any ship had
ever yet succeeded in doing.
Much port wine, much conceit and
much bad temper had made old Gath
erem sick, and the learned leeches of
the Hub had advised a change of air, and
recommended the balmy atmosphere of
the ever faithful Isle of Cuba, so . that
heerfulold gentleman packed his trunks
and fearing somo enterprising young
Bostonian might steal his daughter
wlille he was gone, also packed her
along, and took passage in the A I clip
per, Skymme Mylke, a ship owned by
various pious persons, and named after
their beloved pastor.
The Skymme Mylk boomed along at
a roaring rate, and son the lights of
Boston harbor were far behind her.
The solid old party was very sca
slvk, and as be tried to henve . his boot
heels upward, he hove curses deep and
wrathful at the doctors h ho bad per
suaded him to trust himself to the un
certain motions of a sharp clipper driv
ing into a head sea.
' Though the Skymme Mylke was
owned by persons of piety, and named
after a persou of sanctity bcr master,
Captain Iialph Battler, wan by no means
religiously inclined. v '
No one ever knew whether Cap-
tain Battler swore most or drunk
At any rate he drank enough to carry
sail until his ship opened a seam, and
when he became conscious that he was
cracking it on a little too heAvlly, and
endeavored to take In some of his can
vass, the gale saved him the trouble by
sending his masts over to tho leeward,
and the gallant Skymme Mylke rolled
and pitched and floundered, opening
more seams and commenced sinking
At last, down went the ship.and Cap
tain Battler, with his sea cherubs, and
the passengers, committed themselves
to the tender mercies of a rickety craft,
with scant provisions and water, and,
for a week or more, they scanned the
lonely sea with anxious eyes for a de
Jenny bore up bravely, as women gen
erally do ; but her grumpy old parent
had ceased to be solid, and the lamenta
tions Jeremiah were as zephyrs com
pared to those he sent howling through
He vowed he'd give his wh,ole fortune'
to the captain who would -rescue him,
and as the sea would wash over him, he
swore he'd add himself to the bargain,
and wait upon his deliverer the remain
der of his natural life.
At last, one day a white spot not big
ger than a sea gull's wing, appeared on
the horizon, and soon the royal of a
square rigger could be seen, and then
one sail after another rose out of the sea
with wonderful rapidity,
"That's a skimmer," said Captain
"That's an angel, sir," said Gath
erem. It was nt long before a sharp little
brig dashed by, and hove to within a
hundred yards of the doleful crew on
Jenny could not restrain au exclama
tion of Joy as she read the word " Carl
boo" in golden letters on the quarter
boards of the new comer, and when
Jack made his appcurance on quarter
deck, she waved her handkerchief at
him in a very frantic manner.
Jack, not knowing who it was, was
acting in the coolest possible way.
Hoou a boat, manned by Bturdy row
ers, was alongside, and the women
and children were taken aboard the
Old Gatherem prayed to lie taken
among tho first, but the second mate of
the brig, who wns in command of tho
boat, was obdurate, and he was forced to
content himself with the reflection that
he was saved at any rate.
When Jenny's foot touched the deck
of the Cariboo, it stopped just long
enough for her to bound into the arms
of the astonished Furlaway.
As the novel writers say when 'they
get hold of something they cannot prop
erly dest'i'llie, "we drop the curtain upon
And now we grieve to relate that Cap
tain Furlaway wa9 guilty of a very rcp
rchesible stratagem, having for its ob
ject the destiuntion of the peace of mind
of Hezekiah Gatherem.
He handled the brig like a pilot
Itoat, and laid her close aboard tho
"Baa ahoy!" hailed. "Are there
any doctors of divinity aboard ?"
"Sir," reproachfully exclaimed a long,
lank man, w ho had just arisen from a
cod-fish box, " we "are from Boston I
There are seven of us."
"One will do," responded Jack.
" The rent 6f you had better offer conso
lation to my father-in-law who is to be,
Mr. Hezekit'li Gatherem. The boat 'is
going for one parson and some more of
When the second batch were safely on
lioard of the Cariboo, Jack again hailed
the raft. 1
' I nay, I," ssid he, "lam going to
marry Jenny. Will you givo your con
sent 1"' .
"No!" was the gruff repon se front
" Then, I'm obliged to say that you
w 111 be very apt to Inhabit that raft until
you do give us your consent. Nice
place, ain't it V"
It was ail the six brethern could do to
keep him from jumping overboard, but
finally a sea a little wetter than the
others brought him around, and he
roared something which sounded like:
"Take her and be happy !" only
' happy' wasn't the lust word.
So the long, lank parson from Boston
mode them one and indivisible as they
stood on the windward side of the quar
ter deck, and, after the remainder of the
unfortunates were safely on board, the
Carllioo bounded lightly with a spank
ing breee, toward the port of Modern
And Captain Jack Furlaway says that
nothing but pure coaxing ever Induced
the old gentleman to conseut, but Mr.
Gatherem has his own opinion about
that part of the subject., " " . .
We euu't understand why it was
so awful dark in ICgypt when there were
so muny Israel-light there.
LAWYERS WHO WERE MATCHED. j
A QUICK nnd ready wit Is an al
most Indlspenslblo endowment in
a good cross-examining counsel, but the
quickest and readiest sometimes finds
his match. '
"Oh, you sny this gentleman was
about 65," "aid Canning to a pert young
woman In the witness-box, " and. sup
pose you now consider yourself a pretty
good Judge of ages, eh y Ah, Just so.
Well, now, how old should you take me
"Judging by your appearance, sir,"
replied the witness, " I should take you
to be about 00. By your question I should
suppose you were about 10."
Whether counsel had any more ques
tions for this lady is not recorded.
" Now," began another learned gen
tleman, rising slowly from among his
professional brethern, and looking very
profound. " now, are you prepared to
swear that this mare was three years
" Swear 1"' returned the stableman in
the box, ' yes, I'll swear she was."
" And pray, sir, upon what authority
are you prepared to swear itV'
" What authority V" echoed the wit
ness. " Yes.sir'upon what authority ? You
are to give me an answer and not re
peat my questions." i
" I don't see as a man can be expected
to answer a question before he has had
time to turn it over."
"Nothing can be simpler than the
question put to you. Upon what au
thority, I repeat, do you swear to the
animal's age V"
" On very good authority."'
" Then, why this evasion ? Why not
state it at once?"
" Well, If you must have it "
"Must have It " interrupted the
man of law, " I will have it."
" Well, then, if you must and will
have it," said the hostler, with delib
erate gravity, " I had It from the mare's
A particularly witty reply was once
made by a well-known English arch
itect, who bad been giving an impor
tant opinion, and whose professional
status Mr. Sergeant Garrow, the op
posing counsel, was anxious to de
preciate. " You are a builder, I believe," be
gan the sergeant.
" No, sir, I am not a builder ; I am
" Ah, well, builder or aehlteet, arch
itect or builder, they are pretty mucti
the same, I suppose."
" I beg your pardon, sir, I can't ad
mit that, 1 consider tbem totally differ

wherein this great difference consists?"
" An architect, sir, conceives the de
sign, prepares the plan, draws out the
specifications in short, supplies the
mind. The builder Is merely the ma
chine ; the architect the power that
puts the machine together and set it

will do ; an ingenious distinction with.
out a difference. L'o you happen to

A Mistake Often Made.
. Boys am; young men sometimes start
out in life with the idea that one's suc
cess depends on sharpness and chica
nery. .They imagine, if a man is able
always to " get the best of a bargain,"
no matter by what deceit and meanness
he carries his point, that his prosperity
Is assured. This is a great mistake.
Enduring prosperity caunot be founded
on cunning and dishonesty. The tricky
and deceitful man is turn to fall a vic
tim, soon or late, to the Influences which
are forever working against him. " His
house is built upon the sand, and its
foundation will be certain to give way."
Young people cannot give these truths
too much weight. The future of that
young man is safe who eschews every
phase of double-dealing and dishonesty
and lays the foundation of his career in
the enduring principles of everlasting
What Boys Should Learn. .
Not to tease girls or boya smaller than
"Not to take the easiest chair in the
room, put it in the pleasantest place, and
forget to offer it to the mother when she
comes In to sit down.
To treat their mother as politely as if
she were a strange lady who did not
spend her life in their service.
To be as kind and helpful to their sis
ters as they expect their sisters to be to

To take their mothers Into their con

A Woman's Friendship.
It Is a wouderous advantage to a man,
in every pursuit or vocation, to secure
an advisor in a sensible woman. In
woman there Is once a subtile delicacy
of tact, and a plain soundness of judg
ment, which are rarely combined to an
equal degree In man. A womau, If
she be really your friend, will have a
sensible regard for your character,honor
and repute. . She will seldom counsel
you to do a shabby thing, for a woman
friend always desires to lie proud of
you. At the same time, her constitu
tional timidity makes her more cautious
than your male friend. She therefore,
seldom counsels you to do an Imprudent
' A man's best female friend is his wife
of good sense and heart, whom he loves
and who loves him. , But supposing, tho
man to be without such a helpmate, fe
male friendship he must still have, or
his Intellect will be without a garden,
and there will bemany an unheeded gap,
even in Its strongest fence. Better and
safer of course, arei such friendships
where disparity of years and circum
stances puts the idea of love out of the
question. Middle age has rarely this'
advantage; youth aud old age have.
We may have a female friendship with
those much older, and those much
younger than ourselves. Female friend
ship is to a man the bulwark, sweetness
and ornament of his existence,
Enough in One Bed. . ,
Emigration to the State of Michigan
was so great during the year 1835-0, that
every house was filled every night with
travelers wanting lodging. Every trav
eler there at that time will remember
the difficulty of obtaining a bed in tbe
hotels, even if he had two or , three
" strange bed fellows."
The Bev. Hosea Brown, an eccentrie
Methodist minister, stopped one night
at one of the hotels in Ann Arbor, and
inquired if be could have a room and
bed to himself. The bar-keeper told him
he could, unless they should bo so full
as to render it necessary to put another
In with him. At an early hour th
reverend gentleman went to his room,
locked the door, and soon retired to his
bed and sunk into a comfortable sleep.
Along toward midnight he was roused
from his slumbers by a loud knocking
at his door.
" Hallo 1 you there," he exclaimed,
" what do you want now '"particular j
stress on the last word.
" You must take another lodger, sir.
with you," said the voice of the land
" What! another yet ?" ?
"Why, yes there Is only one in here.
" One ! why, here is Mr. Brown and a
Methodist minister, and myself, already,
and I should think that enough for on
bed, even Michigan."
The landlord seemed to think so, too,
and left the trio to their repose.
(jy Commodore Vanderbilt was wont
to govern, in his private affairs, with a
rod of Iron. - The husband of one of
the daughters of tbe Commodore being
unfortunate in business many years ago,
she went to her father for assistance,
which was refused in a manner more
forcible that elegant. She abruptly with

those days were highly surprised to read
