At eight o'clook the other morning
a wife followed her husband down to
the gate as he was starting for down
town, and kindly said to hirhi , ,
"William, you know how 'sadly I
need a blue buntiug dress," ., , ,
"Yes deur," he remarked, "but yoij
know how hard up I am. As soon
as I can see my way clear you shall,
have the dress, and a new hat to
hoot. Be patient, be good, and your
reward shall be great."
Forty minutes after that be emerg
ed ficm a restaurant with a big bas
ket and a 'fish-pole, bound up the

pickles, cake, fruit, pie and a bottle
of liquor of a rich color, and he wa'i

"I was going tn carry this fish polo
around to a friend," he modenly an
swered. "And that basket ?"
"This basket well, I was a going
to take it to the Orphan Asylum as a

"Mary, tadn'l you ?"
"No, sir, I hadn't. You'd better
hurry up with that fish-pole, as the
man may want it, and be careful hew
you statu! around iu the hot sunl"
She left him there. lie watched
her take the car for home, and theli
he relumed the fish pole nn i crossed

-ind tho excursion is elf till next
week. Too bud, but we can never
tell what aduy may bring lorth."
There was chicken nut pickks and
other good tilings on the table at
dinner, but he never smiled. Even
when his wife wished she was an ori
phan, if that was the war they were
fed, he never betrayed the gloom in
Ida heart. It was only when she
hanued him the bottle be had so
carefully tucked into the basket and
he saw it labelled, "Good tor Little
Children," that he said:
"Mary, it isau awlut thing tor a
wilo to get the impressien that her
hosband is a cold blooded liar."
"It must be," she replied, as she
