Some Reasons WIiyMenand Even
It is an accomplishment which
proves very useful in a variety of
emergencies. 3Iany a young man
going home from seeing "his girl and
plodding over a lonely country road
would have been scared to death only
that he had whistled up his courage;
otherwise he would have been look
ing about for ghosts and highwaymen
and got frightened by the sound of
every falling leaf or perambulating
cat. Tiie whistle prevents him from
hearing mysterious sounds and his
attention being taken up with trying
to follow the tune and working his
eyebrows in unison, will have no
time to look about for what might be
lying in wait for him. And before
he knows it, he will arrive at the
paternal domicile and have to study
about getting into the house without
awakening his father.
Many a man and a great many
more ladies have been prevented
from committing the sin of profanity
because they whistled when they
pounded their forefinger instead of
the tack with which they were at
tempting to fasten the carpet toward
the evening of a spring-cleaning day.
Men whistle when they are happy
and they whistle when they are sad.
When you see a carpenter or a house
painter pushing the plane or slabbing
on the paint and whistling a lively
air at tho same time set him down as
a man who pays his debts, is cheer
ful, at home, and never whips the
children. "When the latter task has
to be performed, his wife has to do it.
When a man is sad ho whistles in
a doleful tone. Nine times out of ten
he won't choose a dismal air, but he
will whistle a lively tune, a hornpipe
or a negro minstrel end song. And
he will draw the melody in and out
between his lips in a way to draw
tears from all listeners. .Sometimes"
a man accomplishes the same result
when he is cheerful and trying to
whistle real good.
When a man is studying some
complex problem, wondering how lie
can live at the rate of $2,000 a year
on a $500 income, or something of
that sort, if he has not got something
to smoke he will whistle, lie will
walk up and down the room or the
back yard, or he will sit in a rocking
chair and thrusting his hands as far
as the elbows into his pants pockets
and whistle whistle softly.
When a man is suddenly surprised
at a preposterous statement, if he is
very profane he will say: "II and
d nation!" If mildly profane he
will say: "The d 11" If not at all
wicked he will whistle : " W-h-e-w ! "
Girls cannot whistle well as a rule.
Now and then there is one who can,
but she is an honorable exception to
the rule. There is one pretty, golden
haired creature in Denver, who can
wnistie nrsi-rate, out tiie uoys
usually do not appreciate it, and they
let her know it. But girls, as a rule,
w histlc in a jerky, disconnected sort
of way and groan mildly between the
There used to be a pious old deacon
of the Baptist Church who was con
tinually whistling, although nobody
ever was known to hear him. lie
was a fat, happy-looking old gentle
man, and lie used to walk with a
slow, rolling gait, which, in a shorter
man and one of quicker movements,
would have degenerated into a wad
dle, lie always walked with his
hands behind him and his lips pursed
into the attitude of a perpetual whis
tle. Thus he would roll along tho
quiet streets of the town where ho
passed his peaceful life, ever with
the whistle just about to emerge from
hi3 lips, but still it never escaped.
When he was very young, his school
mates, his sweetheart, and later his
wife, and the brethren and sisters in
the church, his neighbors, children,
and grandchildren, at the early stages
of their acquaintance with him, waited
for the tune, but all were disap
pointed and he died and made no
sound. Doubtless there was a tune
in his mind of so rollicking and
worldly a character that his position
in the church would not allow him to
let it go forth to set a bad example to
the young. And so he heroically
restrained the earthly desire and
went down to his grave with the
pucker upon his lips and the world
none the worse for his having whis
tled all to himself. Denver Tribune.

The other evening there were sov
eral visitors at Colonel Grandson's
house. The colonel takes great de
light in "showing off" his little son,
and when the boy appeared at the
parlor door the colonel said :
"Come in, Henry. Speak to the
ladies and gentlemen. Ah, that's a
"He is a fine little fellow," said
Mrs. Graftney, one of the visitors.
"Come here, my little man."
The boy approached her. and per
mitted her to lift him onto her lap.
"Why, you are heavy. How old
".Six years, goin' on seven."
"Yes, and you'll soon be a man.
What are you going to do when you
become a man?"
"Do like pa does."
"How does he do?"
"Oh, sometimes when he comes
home at night he falls over a chair "
" Henry !" exclaimed the colonel.
"Falls over a chair, and when maw
gits mad he says it's a pretty way
for a woman to go on just because a
man takes two beers and "
The colonel had seized him.
The Row D. R. Lowell, of the Ash
Grove Methodist Church in this city,
read a paper before a small but atten
tive gathering in the lecture room
of the Hudson Avenue Methodist
Church. He dwelt upon the dif
ferent ways that people present them
selves for" marriage, the sad results of
some marriages, and the amusing
incidents that occur. Mr. Lowell
said: "All that pertains to the work
of the ministry is of interest, and
profitable to us as we exchange our
thoughts in conference. Every min
ister has various experiences in start
ing people in married life. Sometimes
these experiences are pleasant, some
times sad and amusing, and often
times very annoying.
" One of the strange cases was
where a colored man had become
enamored of an Irish girl, and they
finally presented themselves for mar
riage. After the ceremony had been
performed they left apparently happy.
On the day following, the man re
turned and wanted the marriage un
done, but all I could do was simplv
to refer them to a lawyer. Another
case that is amusing, and yet sad, is
where 1 once married a young couple
and when I had pronounced them
man and wife the young man paid
me $1, and explained he was unable
to pay more, as he had just lost what
little money he had possessed. A
short time afterward his wife died
and this young man came to borrow
$2 from me, promising to return it in
a day or two ; but instead of return
ing it he went to a neighboring min
ister and was remarried on my money.
I was once called to a house to per
form the rites of marriage, having
the certificate, all made out, with me.
At the house the friends were all wait
ing. The table was spread with a
bounteous supply. "When it was
time for the ceremony the bridegroom
came forward, not leaning on the arm
of the groom, but she was supporting
him. He was so much under the
influence of liquor as to be unable to
walk. At my request he was seated
and I had a" talk with the intended
bride, and learned that she was the
daughter of lich and respectable par
ents. Her father was to shower a
dowry of $.10,000 on her at the time
of marriage, and she insisted on mar
rying this poor drunken. wretch, v. ho
did not own a dollar. I flatly refused,
and left the house, taking the certif
icate with me, as I did not deem it
right to marry a man that did not
know v.lutl he was about.
" These are some of the few cases
that have come to my notice. Often
times I am ompe!Icd to turn coup't'.i
awav that present themselves for
marriage, '.or various reasons. The
fees of ministers vary for pei fanning
the eeiemony. Sometimes they u
ceivt as high as $20 and more." and
range from t hat as low a $! ainlnoth
ing. Oftentimes some asW to havt
the fee trusted, which is always done.
Some frequently agree to uav inou.
and others never pay at all." Al
What a IlOuhs: Couple Did.
A charming family hotel was built
in a suburb of Boston two years since.
It was furnished with all modern
conveniences and inconveniences.
There were electric bells in a row at
the door, so that the afternoon caller
could ring up nine different and
peaceful maid servants before getting
into communication with the family
she came to see; there were fire
escapes and telephones, and elevators
and speaking tubes, and, for aught I
know, safety-valves and sub-marine
cables. But the crowning joy of all
was the fact that no children were
allowed within its walls. It was
built for the accommodation ofchild
less couples, and to ten childless
couples were the suites let. How
great was the quiet and calm of that
sheltered retreat, until one ill
starred morning, when the cry of
an infant, shrilly and piteously,
broke the stillness I Horror and in
dignation on the part of nine guilt
less couples; and yet, so weak is
humanity, that before the end of the
second year there were children in
seven of the ten families. The child
less couples were childless no more,
and when the owner of the building
complained to his friends of the un
fair treatment he had received at the
hands of his tenants, they all laughed
in his face and advised him to let
apartments to bachelors.
If j ou have humors, pimples, bolls,
eruptions, it is because thesystriu needs
toning ami purifying. Nothing gives
such good health, smooth skin and vig
orous feeling as Simmons Liver Regu
lator, purely vegetable and not unpleas
ant to the taste. The Regulator stimu
lates the liver, cleanses the eyes and skin
of. yellowness, improves digestion and
makes the breath pure and sweet.
