The simple truth is teamen take a great

These were the very words uttered by
Hon. James Huntley to his beloved wife
Elizabeth, one winter evening.
James Huntley, the successful busi
ness man, the courteous, dignified, elc
gantigontleman, and a universal favorite
with the ladies; Elizabeth, Ids wife, once
blooming and still lovely, had just put
tile three Huntley saplings in bed, witli
iiilume labor, and mucli assistance from
nurse, and now, when Fred had taken i
his last drink of water, baby had cried
herself into the arms of Morpheus and
out of his mother's aching ones, she had
walked slowly down stairs, thinking
how glad she would be to retire herself,
but conscious of the duties still to be
done and anxious to join her husband
for a little quiet chat, the one bright
thing after her bustling, weary day.
She entered the library with her mend
ing basket in her arms, hoping her hus
band would offer to read aloud while
she attacked the haunting household
demon; but no, his words of greeting
"Well, Lizzie, I thought you were
never coming down. Why don't you

"For the good reason, Jamie, that I
am its mother, and poor nurse has her
hands full with the others. Do you
"Yes, I've been waiting here two good
hours to hear you read Wilson's speech,
you read so much better than I do, and
besides it does me good to lay otl" and
"Sorry to disappoint you, Jamie, I
must work. All the contents of this
and mally, dear, I am very tired."
Then the ITon. James expressed his
views concerning tired women as slated
above, and threw himself on the lounge
with ids cigar in his mouth, rattling his
paper mther more than the occasion de

Still trembling with fright, she was

Lizzie went to her room.
Master Fred, an irrepressible youth of

The two women went tin tosether and

attacking some or the stockings.
