AN ARKANSAS WEDDING.
The Sew CcrcwfMj Jut Ap-
prve4 by tke vermor.
A very interesting ieddicg oc-
curred over st Hock's Spring the
j other night. Ben Lother and Ida
j Giimes ran away from the neighbor
hood where they had been reared,
and applied toyoung Wilkinson, who
1 recently accepted a call to preach.
iThe arrival of the runaway couple
soon became known, and quite a
number of young people gathered at
the school house where the ceremony
t was to be performed. The preacher,
upon arriving, called Bill Fellers to
i one side, and said :
! "Bill, I couldn't refuse to accom-
modate that young couple, but to
tea tne truth l don't know how to
perform a marriage ceremony. I
was never married and I never saw
anybody married, and I don't under-
I stand the performance."
"I never saw anybody married,
, either" Bill replied, "and I don't
ueueve tuere's anyoody nere that
"It won't do to disappoint them,
for I understand the girl's father is
in pursuit. Let's see, you were com
missioned as a justice of the peace
the other day weren't you?"
"Yes, but the papers didn't shed
any light on marriage ceremonies."
"I don't know what to do about
it," the young preacher continued.
"They've begun to grow restless,
" "Well, parson, I don't understand
it any more than you, but I am will
ing, if you'll help me kill hogs next
week, to take the job off your hands."
Bill turned to the company, and
"Ladies and gentlemen, we've met
here to engage in a verv serious
business. This young couple"
(pointing) "think tney ought to be
married, and it ain't for me to say
they ought not. Young fellow, have
you got your licence?"
"All right. Hop out here now."
The young couple advanced.
"Join hands," said Bill. "I would
like to say that the new ceremony
just approved by the Governor has
gone into effect. Those who have
never seen this ceremony performed
will doubtless be amused at ita nov
elty, but I'll say right here that all
snickering will be treated as con
tempt of court. Young man, what
is your business?"
"lam a farmer."
"Ah, hah I How many rails can
you split in a day?"
"Four hundred in good timber."
"Will you swear to it?"
"Hold up your right hand."
He held up his hand and was
sworn. Bill continued : "Are you a
good hand to cover corn?"
"Please say, Yes, your Honor.'"
"Yes, your Honor."
"That's right. How much can
you cover in a day?"
"Three acres, if the land's in con
dition." "Will you swear it?"
"Yes, your Honor."
"Excuse me. Yes, your Honor."
"Hold up your right'hand."
And he was sworn again.
"What was the weight of the
largest bass you over caught?"
"Idon'tremember exactly. About
five pounds, I reckon."
"Will you swear it?"
"No, your Honor."
"All 'right. Are you willing to
marry this girl?"
"Yes, your Honor. If I wan't I
f wouldn't have brought her here."
"xnat'swnat ltnougnt," utii med
itatively replied. "You love her, I
"Oh, I don't know,
j"What did she say
"She said, 'Yes.' "
"Glad to hear it."
"Now, young lady, will you please
advance and kiss the Judge?"
The girl heBitated a moment, but
she stepped up and kissed Bill.
"Do vou love this man?"
"Yes, your Honor."
The girl corrected her mistake.
"How much do you love him?"
"Glad to hear it. Please step
forward and kiss the Judge." Again
she kissed him.
"Remember that you are under
oath. Did vou ever love any one
"Yes, your Honor."
"Why didn't you marry him?"
"He didn't ask me."
"Please advance and kiss the
"Look here, 'Squire, said the
would-be-bridegroom. "I believe
we'd ruther be married theoldway."
"The old way is repealed. Young
lady, how old are you?"
"Look here, Judge," said the now
impatient lover, "that's none of
"Yes, it is. Young lady, you will
please advance and kiss the Judge."
"No, I'll be blamed if she shall 1
exclaimed the young man; "an'
more than that, "this thing has gone
far enough. Now, I want to ask
you a few questions. Don't move.
The young feilow-Tf hipped out a pis
tol, and Bill's knees began to hump
each other. "Now, juststand there.
Did you ever see a bigger liar than
"No, Colonel," BUI repeated.
' "Wouldn't you steal if you got a

confound you, lead us to a preacher's
house pretty devilish quick. Come
on, folks; the fun ain't over yet."
The Rise of Eageae Hale.
In the Maine Legislature of 1862,
my seat-mate was a gray-haired,
good-looking man, every inch a
gentleman Sir. Grant, of Ellsworth
who treated me cordially from the
first, and between us there grew up
a lasting friendship. He had been
in the House before, and helped me
to get the ''hang of the school
house." Afterwe became acquainted,
Mr. Grant inquired about Eugene
Hale, who was a young man settled
at Ellsworth. I had known Eugene
from earl boyhood, dividing his
time between working on the farm
and going to school, and I gave
him a good recommendation. How
could I do otherwise? for no young
man ever stood fairer or better in
the community in which he was
raised. When I met Eugene I told
him what I had said to Mr. Grant.
"Now, Eugene, I want vou to fill
the bill," said I. "X wilftrv' was
Eugene's reply. When Engeno got
his foot Into Congress there was no
power to get him out, until the
greenback craze knocked his trot
ters out from under him. Seth
Milliken, who represented Eugene's
old district, has not forgotten what
kicked Eugene, and when a bill was
before Congress to make more
eighty -five-cent dollars, he voted
against it. Solon Chase, in Au
Diagnosis or Destiny.

"Mother," said a young wife,
"would you mind cooking the din
ner to-day? It would please John,
I know. He complains so much of
the new girl that I shall discharge
her the moment I can get another."
"Certainly," teplied th old lady,
cordially. At dinner John said to
his wife: "Mary, that new girl
seems to be getting worse and
