' Wants to get Dated Rack. One
beautiful Sunday afternoon, last fall,
a young couple from an adjoining town
came to our village, stopped at one of
our hotels, sent out for a clergyman
and were married. The young man
paid him the fee, took a marriage cer
tificate, and they left the hotel a happy
couple. ,A few days since the' young
man called upon the clergyman with
his certificate,'."and wished to get it
dated back.": r ' . . ' J";".
"How far back do you wish it dated,"
inquired the clergyman.
" "Why, as near as we can calculate,
about a couple of monlJix" replied the
young man.'' "This the clergyman de
clined doing, but the voung man'wished
he would. t4as he had rather give five
dollars than not to have it dated back."
The clergyman regretted the necessity
of dating back the crtificafe, and was
very sorry he could not comply with
his wishes; so the voung man left with
his 5 and marriage certificate, the
latter being "as near as they could
calculate about a couple of months
j too short."-i?r7;t'a (X J") Jcvrnal.
