"And what h that," locked.

In ono or the tonnships In this enmity, n
llttlo norlli of Itucyrur, dwelt a well-to dn
widower about fifty, with an only sou ol
twenty-two or three. Mr. (wo with
hold names for obvious reasons) bud been
n widower fur many yours, and became
weary of that mode of living ; he accord
ingly determined to marry again. The de
termination oneo formit, the licit thing
was to find tliu woman ncce-wry, whichi
in this country, is not at all difficult. For
tunately for him, a widow lady resided
neur him, who had a daughter posMtfiiug
all the requirements. She nut u beautiful
girl, of twenty years, uccomplithcd ond
spirited Just the one he wanted. To be
suic she wat rather young, but Mr. -uos
younif looking ult-o. Sometimes hit
mind would wander to the mother, who
was quite us bandsomo as tho daughter,
und ulmost us young in opwarancoj but
hu had rnudo up bis mind to uarry the
daug'iU-r, nud he set ubout it with u will.
Ha did not mention Ids determination to
his son, fearing the idea of marrying one
so much younger thuu bimtelf might expose
him to his ridicale.
In the meantime his ror. had become des
perately enamored of thu widow, und had
likewlso detenn'ned upon marrying her.
He did not communicate tho fact to hU
father, for the same reason that actuated
the old gentleman, for fear of exciting rid
icule by marrying a woman so much oMer
thau himself. They both eumiuettced call
ing at the housu f( tho widow, aud fre
quently met each other theiu. This cir
cuiiistunco unnoyed them both Immeusvly.
The old gentleman thought, very naturally,
that the young man was there for the young
lady, and the .young gentleman as naturally
suppotcd the -old oik; wus there fur thu
As the matter progressed, the meeting of
the fatler and mm nt that place became
frequent, und the more ofic; it occurred,
the more intolerable it became. Finally,
Mr. nVtenuiuid to speak to his sou
ou the subject.
" Charles," said he, " I have determined,
after much consideration, to marry, aud
thought it but right aud proper to make
you acquainted with the determination."
" Very good," replied Cbarjes j" I con
sider It very proper that you should dp go.
And, speaking of marrying, I have con
cluded to marry myself."
" I approve of the idea," returned tho
old gentleman ; " you ore of suitable age
to settle down. May 2 ask Iho name of
" Mrs. -," exclaimed Charles, brac
ing up and assuming a defiant look,
" Whew," whistled the old gentleman j
" fine woman, Charles ; but isn't she 0 tri-
tfo too advanced Jo years?"
" I think not," said Charles " but who
have you decided upon ?''
' Why, Charles, U is n very curious cir.
cumstaocc, but I hud determined o marry
" Daughter I" exclaimed rbarks , ' vtby
old as sho Is;
though 1 don't object."
The matter was thus happily settled, and
and in tho course of 11 few weeks it was
satisfactory urinngcd with the widow nnd
d milliter, nud the parlies wrro married.
Very soon nfirr the marriage was con
summated, thry nil discovered that they
had made n grand mistake. The ton found
that the widow wasnltogcther too mother
ly for the wife of n' young man of twenty
throe, ond the'nld gentleman found that n
young lady of twenty wu too volatile for
a sober-minded man of fifty. Disagree
ments followed, then neglect, ond finally
the thousand little quarrels, ond sntibhiiigt,
and bickerings, iuiicriiig down into n
grand fight, which was kept up, with slight
variations, for three months.
Finally they ngreed permanently lo disa

bad arrived at Hiieyrus, they hnd arranged
