It would be a better sermon than he ever thought to preach, Just to launch my skiff some morning and up the river row it, And loiter in the coulees where the winds steal down the reach.

"WHIT'S IN A NAME?" Having opened a Steam Laundry on Asnuntuck street, Thompsonville, we hereby solicit a share of the public patronage by strict at-tentlon to business and first-class work. We will give you satisfao-laundry work. It all came about through winning that prize, and getting my name published broadcast throughout the length and breadth of the land. It is of course a fine thing to wake up one morning and find oneself famous, but even this apparently has its drawbacks. I did not mind the crafty appeal for help, the wily prospectuses of fortunes to be made by taking shares in this or that bogus company, or even the well-laid schemes of horse-racing pools, that came in by every post; but when it came to downright misrepresentation, I thought the limit had been quite overstepped. It was about a fortnight after the day on which my humble patronymic was blazoned forth to the world as the winner of a much-coveted prize that I received the following remarkable communication :— 'At last I have found you, villain! Your hiding-place is no longer secret, for I have read in a public print your hateful name and address! Scoundrel! Those whom you are bound by every earthly tie to cherish and support have been cruelly left to the tender mercies of the parish, while you. doubtless, have lived a life of luxury! But the game is now played ,out and a day of retribution is at hand! I. your lawful wife, and my six children— our children—will make it our business to call on you and demand the rights a husband and a father has so long with-help. Beware! You have extended to us no mercy! We will show you none 1 Your loving wife, "SUSAN." To say that I was knocked baok by this strange epistle is only to express half a truth. It fairly took the wind out of my sails. My wife and children! Six of them! This was surely coming it strong for a young fellow who only a few weeks previously had celebrated his twenty-third birthday. I did not even possess that indispensable desideratum to a family man—a wife. True, I was soon going to have one, for—and this is a little secret between ourselves—the banns of marriage between the accomplished Clementina Wilks and myself had been called for the third time only on the previous Sunday, and a week hence was to see us united forever in the bonds of matrimony. This by the way. Of course I knew there must be some terrible mistake in the document I held in my bands, but that knowledge did not make the perusal of it any more agreeable. I could plainly see that it might easily lead to some little awkwardness at a time when I least wanted any. However, 1 was determined not to let the thing unduly worry me, so, swallowing the matutinal tea and toast, I shortly afterward lit a cigarette and set out for the performance of my daily duties, finally consoling myself by coming to the conclusion that the affair was probably a stupid joke on the part of some freakish friend, and I should hear no more of it. At a little later than my usual hour in the afternoon I returned to my lodgings, and then saw—a fact of which I was not previously aware—that I had stupidly left this very remarkable communication behind me on leaving home in the morning, |or it.lay on a sideboard open for any one to rea<l. I guessed, of course, that the landlady had, by virtue of a landlady's inalienable rights, made herself by this time familiar with its contents, but did not challenge her on the point I was more concerned to know if any one else had done so too, and with that view inquired if there had been any visitors during the day. "Only Miss Wilks," was the landlady's reply, with a sort of bottled-up smile. "She came about an hour ago, thinking you would be home, and after staying a few minutes, suddenly left." Suddenly left! Had she then read the stupid thing? Doubtless. Although knew Clementina to be a not more than ordinarily inquisitive girl, the near approach. of our marriage seemed to give her a sort of right to make herself acquainted with everything that concerned my welfare, and what more natural than that she should feel a real interest in the correspondence of the man who, a week hence, would be her husband? Oh, yes, my beloved for the How pretty the little villa looked wherein she dwelt, with its sloping grass lawn and bed of brilliant geraniums! How proudly the tulips reared their heads above the blue flowered iris that skirted the garden wall; how fragrant the honeysuckle that climbed around the artfully-designed entrance, and what a wealth of floral beauty was displayed in the miniature conservatory that encirled the drawing-room window ! But how much more lovely than all was Clementina herself, as she stood awaiting me inside the room in all the beauty of budding womanhood, with her brilliant eye and flushing cheek! I rushed forward to greet my charmer with all my customary effusiveness. I did not get quite the reception I expected. "Monster!" cried Clementina, drawing herself up to her full height of five feet nine and waving me off with her hand. "Approach me not! Have you the effrontery to insult me. with your polluted presence, you base man?" For a woman who, in half a dozen days, is expected to become one's wife, 1 thought this rather rich; but as I knew Clementina had a hankering after stage effect, I concluded she was acting, and laughed at her. "Ah, you mock me, vile thing! Quit my presence and go—go to your wife and children!" shrieked the fair one, evidently in earnest. "Clementina, don't be stupid," I said. "There is a mistake. I know to what you allude. You have been to my rooms and read a stupid note addressed to me. I tell you it is all a mistake." I "And a pretty mistake for me!" cried She. "But, thank heaven, I have discovered it in time, before it became irreparable. Oh, you monster!" "Hear me, Clementina, like the sensible girl I've always taken you to be," I pleaded. "1 tell you the whole thing is an error, a delusion, without a word of truth in it. I will have the wretched business cleared up at once. Besides, think a moment. The idea is preposterous. If you could bring yourself to imagine me the husband of another you surely could not believe me the father of half a dozen children. It is too absurd!" And I smiled a sickly smile at the lolly of the thing. How can I tell? Perhaps you have deceived me in your age as welll- Of what value is a man's unsupported word? But leave me; go, and let me break my heart in solitude!" In this strain she went on, blindly refusing to be comforted, until the thing got so hot that I seized my hat and rushed to my lodgings in despair, with the intention of forthwith tying myself to the bedpost, instead of a week hence to a wife. On consideration, however, I decided to postpone the fatal act for a day or two, in order that I might have time to arrange the disposal of my worldly goods and chattels, as I did not wish there should be any wrangling over the possession of my hat boxes after my decease. In this determination I retired early to rest, to enjoy the sleep of innocence. But I did not have things quite to my- Belf. My uneasy slumbers of the night were a fearfully enlarged edition of this day'B proceedings. The six children, quickly multiplied to sixty, shared my distressful couch, and made the night merry with their pranks. They danced hornpipes on my chest; turned somersaults on the bridge of my nose: seized me by the hair of my head, and whirled me round the room in a manner that would have surprised Mr. Maskyline himself, tossing me over and over like a Shrove Tuesday pancake. Needless to say that I awoke in the morning with a splitting headache, and feeling generally so unwell that I decided to pass the day indoors. It was afternoon, and I had thrown myself into an easy chair and filled my pipe with the intention of spending half an hour in the regions of oblivion and tobacco smoke, when a violent rat-tat st the outer door caused me to jump to iny feet. A few seconds later the door of my room was thrust suddenly open, and a powerful feminine voice exclaimed: "Go to your father, my dears, and let him see how you love him!" In an irifetant half a dozen brats of every conceivable degree of dirtiness rushed into the room and made for me. A couple caught bold of each leg, while the others pinioned me securely by the arms, and the whole of them burst into a cracked chorus of "Daddy! daddy!" The scene was probably ludicrous, and I believe 1 could have laughed at it myself, but that through the open door I thought I could see Clementina with a scowl upon her face. What does all this mean? Take those brats away?" I shouted, vainly struggling to free myself from the embraces of the young wretches. A woman of masculine build bounced into the room and turned her glaring eyes upon me. It's the wrong man!" she replied; and then, turning to the imps, said: "Come away, my dears, we've made a mistake. That's not your father." 'Then what do you mean by sending ||rf tion in all kinds of Drop us a postal and we will call as good for boils, ||| for workppglll A NEARLY FATAL RUNAWAY started a horrible ulcer on the leg of J B Orner, Franklin Grove, 111., which defied doctors and all remedies for four years.

The woman regarded her ly. "My husband, raws, wretch as he is, is a man !" was her reply, to injury. loudly. As for I have seldom felt smaller in my life. I was quite aware of my youthful appearance; in fact, prided myself upon it, believing it a point in my favor. But to have it thrown at me in this way was most humiliating. However, it seemed to settle for once and for all the insinuations of the latter, and evidently con vinced Clementina herself, for shortly afterward, with the assistance of the landlady, she managed to draw off the horrible woman and her brats, and even to extract an apology from her for the mistake she had made, When they had gone Clementina came up to me and said: "Will you forgive me, dearest? I see how stupid I have been, and am mad with myself for ever having distrusted you But the letter was the cause of it all. How silly of me evefr to have believed it! Can you overlook my folly and love me again?' For a few moments I had serious thoughts of taking a third single to the Sandwich islands,but Clementina pleaded so prettily that—well, I gave way, and we were married at the date previously arranged.—Tit-Bits. Samuel Sylvester, a farmer living near Middletown, killed a cow a few days ago, and on opening the stomach found a gold medallion necklace, the disappearance of which last summer caused a young farm hand, Andrew Johnson, to be sent away branded as a thief. The necklace was the property of Miss Katheryn Lamson of Muscatine, Iowa, and was valued as a family heirloom. She visited the Sylvester farm last summer, and, happening to have the necklace on when a straw ride was organized, wore it On returning the necklace was missed, but, the party not having left the wagon, search for it was deferred until morning. By that time the energetic young Johnson had thrown the hay from the wagon into the barn, and though it was hunted over carefully, no trace of the necklace was found. It was assumed that Johnson had found it and secreted it. Realizing he was under suspicion, Johnson left the farm and has not been heard of since. Twelve hotels and more than a wore of small buildings adjoining the beard walk, which is built along the ocean edge at Atlantic City, N. Y., were destroyed last Thursday by a fire which swept the beach front for two long blocks from Illinois avenue to New York avenue. The loss, it is believed, will exceed $750,000. In this respect the conflagration is the most disastrous that has ever visited that city. The loss will be only partly covered by insurance, as the rate of five per cent, charged by insurance companies on property there is regarded as almost prohibitive. Fortunately no lives were sacrificed, though probably a dozen persons were slightly injured and burned. It was reported early in the afternoon that six men had perished in the flames, but the rumor was without foundation. The origin of the fire is unknown, but it is said to have started in either Brady's baths or the Tarlton, which adjoins the baths at Illinois avenue and the board walk. THE GREAT DISMAL SWAMP of Virginia is a breeding ground of malaria germs. So is low, wet or marshy ground everywhere. These germs cause weakness, chills and fever, aches in the bones and muscles, and may induce dangerous maladies. But Electric Bitters never fail to destroy them and cure malarial troubles. They will surely prevent typhoid. "We tried many remedies for malaria and stomach and liver troubles," writes John Charleston of ByeBville, O., "but never found anything'as good as Electric Bitters."
