Girls' Wit Enough for a Tight Place.
(From the Saginaw Courier.)
The following good story is
vouched for to us by one of the
participants in the affair. Two
friends we'll call them
TOM AND DICK",
went a few nights since to call up
on a couple of damsels, who reside
with their mother in the eastern
portion of the city. The old lady
is somewhat deaf, and the girls
somewhat roguish. The gents were
graciously received by the old lady,
who formed a fifth in the social
circle. Ordinary bed time came,
and the gentlemen professed to
leave , the girls showing them to
the door. But this was only a ruse
to get the old lady to bod.. The
front door was opened and shut,
.and the girls returned to the dining-room;
the two beaux having
been slipped into the front parlor
and left there in the dark. It was
supposed, of course, that the slight-
DEAF OLD LADY
would soon be in the land of Xod,
but she took a sudden whim to go
and sit in the parlor a while, and
taking up a light started for that
place'. Dick and Tom had been
anxious listeners and watchers, and
now saw the old old lady approach
ing with a lamp. As she passed
into the hall, their only means of
escape w.as cut off. Dick made a
dive behind a lounge that stood
out a few inches from the wall
the frame-work was too low for him
t o crawl under and Tom, find ing no
other place, wedged himself in on

tn,oK, ami uenori.nei) se-aimg nei-
selt on the lounge, began to reael.
The feelings of
THE NICK YOUNG MEN'
behind the lounge may be better
imagined than described. .Tom
was in dread of immediate detec
tion, while Dick dreaded smother
in ir. He was so frightfully cramp
ed that he was getting reckless as
to conseuuences, and in a muffled
voice that only the old lady's deaf
ness prevented her from noticing,
mumbled to Tom: "Kick the
, .. 1.1 . 1. .. 1 ....... 1
lounge oer, oiow uie lamp out anu
let s jump through the window.
As Dick was squirming in a way
that boded a sudden expose for
Tom, it is probable that the latter
would have taken his advice to the
letter, but for the interposition of
the quick-witted girls. At first,
expecting the cat was out of the
bag, they had kept back, ready to

they could not avoid, but hearing
no noise after the old lady entered,
they went to see what had become of
the'gallants. Two pair of boots
and a foot or so of pantaloons were
visible from the door, :md the girls,
making some conmioii-plaee re
marks to their mother, went away

hum ire. But in a few sec
there came a shout from the wood
shed, where the girls then were, j
saving that their lamp had blown !
out, .and askii'g "mother" to come
with hers. The boys heard them
j plainly; and even smother
topped his muttering and threat
ening. 1 he good old lady rose,
wiped her specks and folded them
away, and bidding the girls not to
be frightened, went off with the
lamp to their aid. It would be
superfluous to say that the loung
ing boys didn't lounge just there
any longer. They unlocked the
front door as quickly as they could
without even bidding the young
ladies good night. It was well for
them that they did, for in less than
three minutes the old lady was seat
ed on the lounge again, perusing

Don't Marry, for Money.
EMMA J. OPPKNI1K1MEKG
Girls, never marry old men
when I say old, I mehn a man O
twenty or twenty-five years older
than you are; rest assured you wilt
feel sory afterward. -
I do not believe in May and De
cember the difference is too greai; q
I believe in marrying to choose one
whom you really, love, ami who is
not over ten or eleven years your
senior. . .
Don't take him because he is
nice, so "stylish looking," ami
every time he comes to see you.
wears a different pair of gloves and 0
a new necktie; ami then b. cause his
moustache is waxed just so, aiul
his hair is smooth and not a single
hair is out of place, and all that
kind of nonsense'.
Take my word for if, girls lie 0
will not make a good husband; ho
thinks too much of himself for that.
Don't except Maurice because
you like him. but only feel, a sjm
perimr liking, and think and argue
to yourself that love will come af
ter marriage that's nonsense, too.
Bather marry a man with &
plain face, and good steady ways,
even if he is not very stylish, and
love him. Suppose his cinyi di
stances are only so so, as long as
he can support you decently and.
is a good husband, what do ycu
care for style?
You will be far happier than your
sister Annette, or your cousin Jldia1,
who married the. elegant anct
wealthy Mr. Winters, who isonut
half the night playing cards, with
his friends; of course the fashiona
bles do not call it gambling, but
what else is it, when a man neglects
his wife and family and locs half
his fortune in one night? ( .
And then after coming home late",
lie sleeps late, and whehhegefup
is cross because he lost ten thous
and at "euchre, and goes out 'again,
to the trotting course, and 'do nit
come in until another half nigl9t
has passed. What of a life is that?
And yet you must expect it, if
you link your life to a man you do
not love. . ,
Of course you have your round
of pleasure, too; but you doiit care
for him, only for his money, and .
his passing infatuation for your
pretty' face or graceful figure has
passed off, so you each go your own
way, each on the road to ruin.
Of course, when he finds out ill at
you have flirted and even allowed
Ormond AVoodliehl to kiss you, he
storms and says he wsni't allow
his name to be disgraced, t.v:c., anil)
then you get indignant, and tell
him it's none of his business to in
terfere with you, as you married
his money, not him, and that yovi
love Ormond, ami when lie (your
husband) dies, you intend marry
ing him, ,
'Then he storms and swears and

And then when the case is com

up, you will feel like burying your

Double A i v a xt.vue gained.
The carpetbaggers and schala-
wags ot the South, remarks an ex

the session of Congress. This, of
course, costs money'. . Ilooest men

Their friends always keep a com
mittee on reconstruction or Ojji
southern outrages on hand, with a
view of accommodating these gen
tletnen by summoning tltgin as
witnesses. A double advantage is
thus gained. The cart-baggerS
and sehalawags get their expenses
paid by Congress, and the com
mittee have always an expert Set
of witnesses on hand.
It is stated that the celebrated
trouin"- horse Blackwood, Of ott

price said to have been paid is
so 2,-300, more, by long odds, than
was ever given before foranythifig
in the shape of horstlesh. How
fast Blackwood can trot is not
known. He made one race iri
public as a three-vear-old, and
scored 2;31. Some of thknowing
