that's Jest the way ii used to be down
in old California."
"But we mustn't grumble lip here,
Abe. Cuuie on, let's look around a
little." . . r ; .
And of! they strolled, hand iu hand,
down the sunny paths of Paradise,
old Abraham Fife and his good wife,
Saury. They had reached theeten al
dream-laud of the hunwu race, and
found themselves treading the holies),
ground iu the universe. It was the
heaven of man in all the ages where
the sum of all the good he has known
on earth baa betu extracted from all
theevil by' some mysterious alchemy
of bis jod. And this was tbe laud
that these two old pioneers of earth
had eutered to begin their stroll to-
geiuer aown me joyous mgnwaja oi
eternity. After they had eujoyed the
sweet associations of the redeemed of
tiad for a thousand years, and bad
oeen eoustamiy niinisiereo. niuo oy
the sweet-voiced angels of heaven, Abe
called Nancy apart one day to one of
the quiet nooks of that happy land for
a good, old time, earthly chat.
"I tell you, Nancy, this thing o'
comlu' to heaven ain't what it's
cruvked up to be."
"Don't go ou that way, Abe. Jist
be putieut au' the good time'll come
by aud by."

to sii.v down ou earth, an' it's all rn
"Why, ain't you bavin' a good time,
Abe? You dou't hev none but tbe
very goodest of meu and things about
you, mi evil nor tiyiu' things at all."
"That's Jist what I'm tired'of, Nancy,
I've been potteriu' round here for a
thousand years, au' I ain't run up
au'ni nnthiu' yet, an' I'll be blamed ef
it ain't gittin' kiud ef monotonous.
My doctrine is 'at you kiu hev things
too much your ow.i way."
"They say this is the happiest place
of anywhere, Abe, an' I reckon It must

when we wu young. And how we
wus more happier still when we come
out to Califoruy an' dug gold, an-1
tnised wheat an' picked fruit, while'
the children was growln' up. Course
we had sunicruiuy days, but ab, theui
wus but I call happy times, Nancy."
"No use laikin' 'hout that now, Abe.
It's past forever an' we've got to enjoy
this place." .
"Weil, I reckon we kep never hey

Naney, but I wish I could git back

blamed fools ou earth, an' tell 'em
how glad they orter be, 'cause they're

the other day they wiwstlll a prey in'
to get tin ir flocks up here, au if they
couldn't do that they wanted to turn
toe old earth into a paradise, an' let
people wade around iu good up to
their necks down there. tSo yog see,
Nancy, there ain't no more sense In
