Tone and Tune.
When your vitality Is low you need
"toning up." Why not "tuning up?"
Same thins. We are all pianos, just
a mass of sounding boards, keys and j
strings. We get out of tune and tone;
we run down, Just like an eight-day ,
clock, and require rewinding. Look at i
your wife to-morrow morning and see
If she Is out of tune. If she is cross ;
you will say she got out of bed with
the wrong foot foremost. Not a hit of
sense in that. She simply got up from j
her night's rest out of tune, or tone.
Tune her up! Tone her up! In her
finest health she may be a G sharp; ,
wnen not so well sne may be at 1). .

Too Good a Story to Keep.
This woman was ill, or thought
she was, which came to the turn
thing. Accustomed to the ministra
tions of the family phjBlcfarx she-'
sent out a hurry call, but the iriwftco
could not be located for the moment.
She grew sick and sicker with every
minute, and as a last resort, another
medical man was sent for, a strauxer, .
but of high repute.
liefore he could respond, tlm family '
physician turned up and cared for
his patient. He was not told that
another had been railed in, and when
the second man arrived, the lady was
so flustered and nonplused by the
false position In which she found her
self that she sent down word she was-,
too ill to see the physician would be.
