' Thompson was a- happy man, Lut
Mrs. Thompson was not that is, not a
happy tro-rurin and her unhapphiess
was Loth a source of satisfaction and
amusement to hor husbauJ.
' They were well-to-do in this world ;
for, as Thompson was a very succ s---ful
t peculator in grain at the Corn Kx
changft, Mrs. Thompson wa3 seldom
without change,' and with their t.vo
selves only in the family, they managed
to eat, live, and dres3 well,
t Thompson loved a joke, and if a
practical one, so much the better ; hut
Ids w ife never saw one, and was too
practical to enjoy the witticism that
Veiled cither a vulgarism or a satire.
And, of course, her facetious spouse
took exceptional care to make her the
victim of l is one failing whenever the
Spirit prompted.
In consequence of which little Mrs.
Thompson was in a constant state of
uncertainty whether to laugh or ciy.
For instance, on the last morning of
the old year, as her husband was leav
ing: the pretty villa at Cianhani, to go
down to business, he turned at the door
to say, solemnly
"Good-bye, Puss ! We've eaten our
last meal together thi3 year !
She 6tarted up in alarm and rushed
after him to the door, from which lie
was slowly emerging, with a broad
grin on hi face.
'Hut, Tody," she gasped, shivering
on the threshold, as the keen air struck
"Theodore, madam V sternly re
torted Thompson, looking at her with
a lixed eye, "or Dore, if you like but
not Tody. Ugh P
"Theodore, then," pleadingly cried
the poor little woman, "whs wlia-at
do you mean? Aro you angry? Did I
I do anything wrong?"
"I leave you, madam, to find out. I
shall not see ycu again this year."
And, with a wave of his hand, Thomp
son, walked off, the grin reappoaiiitg
as his wife's horrilied countenance
camo into his mind. "She'll lind out
that it's the last day of the year," ho
soliloquized, a he mounted the omni
bus that every morning carried him to
(iracechurch-street ; "and remember
that I'm going to supper with Jones
to-night, and c f course will not see her
until the New Year is in."
But Mrs. Thompson did not cea tho
point of tho joke until Theodore ex
plained it, at two o'clock next morning,
and passed a miserable day according
ly, brooding over hi3 parting words
and their hidden meaning.
Amid a shower of tears and a nanno
nade of sobs, Thompson vowed ho
would never no, never again make
her tho subject of a joke, which ho was
only too glad to promise as the price of
peace ; for the last bottle of champagne
had just touched the spot which variab
ly ached with double horse-power, and
he fell off asle.-p with a splitting head
ache, murmuring mysteriously :
"Mumm's the word."
Which tho subdued and penitent wife
understood to be a request that site
would not again refer to this incident,
to which she eloquently replied, as she
sank into slumber :
"I'll forget it all. Tody Dore
Theodore !"
Thus tho fact is evident that the care
less, fun-loving Thompson found lifo
more desirable than his earnest, loving
little wife, to whom the days were 1 ng
nnd empty until he should return, and
the nights weird and ghost-haunted
until his latch-key startled the lonely
spectres back to their lurking-places.
J3ut Thcodoro never thought of this,
lie was the ringleader of a few M irk
Lane habitues, and didTmore bonneting,
grain-pelting, and other sportive jes's
than the whole band of convivil spiirts
together ; and, besides, sang the best
songs told the best stories, and played
the sharpest tricks. And so imbued
had he become with this spirit that his
better, soberer nature was becoming
completely eclipsed, when at last a
pull-back arrested him in his mad
career," and the tables were turned on
Theodore Thompson, Esquire.
Mrs. Thompson, like the generality
of the feminine readers of newspapers,
found her greatest enjoyment of the
daily paper in tho list of deaths and
marriages, lost and found and the
agony column.
For this latter she had a rare fascina
tion, and many times and oft would
break in upon Theodore's study of
the grain quotations in the "Mark Lane
Express," with wondering demands
for an explanation of this strange or
that singular request from so-and-so,
and thus and so, in the second column
of the "Time3."
One fatal day, following upon a series
of suppers and excursions to which
Theodore had lent the lustre of his wit,
leaving her to her lonely evenings and
disconsolate daj-s. without the aid of a
female friend to beguile the time with
aesthetic art discussions, she fell upon
a remarkable advertisement, and Ne
mesis followed fast upon Thompson's
"Tody, isn't this strange? Just lis
ten," said Mrs. T., with big open eyes,
staring at her paper uneasily.
Tody had heard the like before, and
was besides very intent on -calculating
the margin the sudden rise would allow
him in his next offers, and therefore
simply grunted out, "Yes, very." And
went on comparing the closing prices
of last year with the present one.
Mrs. Thompson had grown very
agitated, and was peering intently at
her husband from behind her paper.
"You must listen. Theodore," she
said,- decidedly, with a shake of the
All right, Fm listening. Wheat,
129 J. a fall of three-eights since yester
day," murmured Thompson, abstract
edly, figuring away.
'Thcodoro Thompson, what does
this mean?" demanded the small wo
man, with hysterical majesty, looking
very stern, but trembling very' womanly.
Thi3 was the advertisement, which
she proceeded to read aloud with the
sonorous importauco of au angry swal
low. .
Theodore looked at her grimly. He
saw fun at once. Tho wheat market
faded into oblivion, and the spirit of
mischief tilled his mind with other quo
tations. "Head it . slowly, dear," ho said,
Tho small woman quivered.
"Theodore, you love another?"' she
gurgl . I, and wildly waved the paper.
"Anotl er?" cried Thompson, with
melo-draina in tone and attitude "A
dozen of them. I dote on anothers. But
who who has betrayed me?"
He seized the paper from his agita
ted wife, and spread it wide open be
fore him ; then, running his bauds
through his hair with a wild air, ho
read out, with stern emphasis:
"T. T. If jou love me, meet me at
the same place. I must see you.
L. Z."
Thompson looked under his eyelid3
at Lis wife. S'io was following every
word with c-rnest face and grief
stricken eyes, and a grin peered round
the corner of his lips as he thought of
how he would cure her foolish fancy
for the agony column thenceforth.
So," he said, gravely, "you kuow
'All, Theodore P' wailed poor Mrs
T. "Is this thing true?"
"That thing is true," assented To 1-,
sadly; "but I throw myself on jour
mercy, and beg, for the sake of the of
tho Crn Exchango that you will do
nothing rash! Think not of jourself
alone in this sail aflair, but of your
country "
"My country!" sobbed Mrs. T., fall
ing back limp and aghast.
. "Yes. I am an ornament, as well as
a useful member, of that great and
glorious food menagerie "
"Menagerie !" wailed Mrs. T., wring
ing her hands.
"Yes. The bulls and bears are the
source of our income. Expose me, and
you ruin me. IJj patient, and all will
be right once m re."
Thomps n shook with inward glee,
as his rapid imagination wove tho in
cident into a good yarn for the boys at
the next supper, excluding the true
names o f dramatis personal.
Mrs. Thompson listened with pale
face nnd a piteous look, that might
have checked her husband in his joke ;
but with a quiet pride that was new to
her, and seemed born of this terrible
emergency, she hid her pain from him
and forced herself to speak calmly.
"Theodore," she said, slowly, 'tell
me. if you please, all about this."
She touched the paper lightly.
Thompson turned on his heel to stare
at her, b it she was bti3y putting the
breakfast things together, and he could
not see her faee.
"Gad!'' he muttered to himself, "but
she takes it coolly. I wonder if she
A sudden pang seized him ; a fierce
lo k drove the grin from its hiding
place, and he punched in the crown of
his hat vindictive!'.
Til draw it strong," he decided,
"and see if she don't come down."
A!onl, and wish mock humility.
"It all grew out of the hist LordMay
or's Sh w. I was appointed by tho
Ward to superintend the tableaux that
wer to take part in the procession, and
it was decided to have one tableau in
particular to represent Ceres, the god
dess of plenty. It was that goddess of
plenty, my dear, that made me re
creant to my connubial vows, and
boun d me in the toils of tho siren."
Thompson paused, with a dramatic
quaver, but looking curiously at tho
quiet face bending over the silver
Bp ion?.
"Well?" said the steady voice.
Thompson began twisting his hat
round an I round in a startled quandary
What did it mean? She was as indif
ferent as if he was telling of son other
fellow, and not himself her own d -ar
Tody ! She was losing her interest in
him ; she didn't care fortius escapade!
Could it be p sibla? Theodore felt
hims If growing pale. And how pretty
she looked!
"Well, The More?" said the small
woman, giviug a lump of sugar to her
'Well, I got entangled, as one does
in those kind of affairs," stuttered
Thompson, failing in his composition,
and wishing he had never begun it, but
urged' on now to a grand denounce
ment, in tiie hope of breaking up tho
el ill indifference of hia wife's manner,
and of hearing once more her loving
liitle Hugh and "Good-bye, Tody!"
To ly" was beginning to bo one of
the sweetest sounds he had ever heard.
"And it's gone on and on until tho
present time."
He paused, ignominiously. Now she
would faint. She did not. She took
up the silver tea-pot and examined it
"What strange fancies men have P
she said, quietly. "It never occurs to
a woman t make such a fool of har
sc f ! Where does your goddess of
plenty plenty of what, Theodore??
live, may I ask?
Thompson sought a view of her face;
it was pa!e ami set, and the eyes looked
sleepless and heavy.
"Sae's hard hit, after all P' exulted
the selfish dog. "Now J.'U make her
admit it."
And he forthwith gave her an ad
dress in a low tone, with humble con
trition in his manner, watching fever
ishly tho while for tho stagger and
catch of the breath which should be
tray his victory.
Mrs. Thompson turned to him very
quietly, and gave him instead a long
"Ami I believed you to be a gentle
man P she si nply said, and walked
past him out of the room.
Thompson was in no enviable mood
that day, and hats and handkerchiefs
for once were safe in their owners' pos
session, for he no longer disported
himself, with cow-like gambols, on tho
floor, nor blandly sm there I timid bid
ders with their own coat-tails.
On tho contrary, ho made his offers
with the air of a Nihilist conspirator,
and often stout staring down at his
feet with a fierce frown,
"Something's gone wrong with
Thompson," said h'S friends, nudging
each other, and looking paralyzed, as
they wero about to pelt him with a
handful of grain, ami he suddenly
raised his gloomy eyes on them.
"Confound you, let me alone!'' he
growled ; and they walked away as if
the biggest tiger had broken away
from the Zoo.
Later in" tho day came a terrible
hock to Thompson. Ho had decided
to write to his wife, ami "make it up"
with her, when in walked his best
friend and fellow-joker, Tony Town
send. "HilloaP shouted Tody, feebly,
half sorry to see him.
Townsend grasped hfm wjldly by the.
"Noble friend, 3"ou'ye saved mo," hg
Thompson gasped.
Saved yon?"'
"Yes, -T. T.' you know," explained
Townsend, advancing to shake him
again by the hand..
Thompson fell back in his chair.
"Keep off Fm dangerous P ho
yelled. "What do you mean?''
Townsend was again about to rush
forward, when Thompson put out both
feet and stopped him.
"Your wife " began Townsend.
Thompson sat upright, and glared
like Othello.
'Came into our office this morn-ing-M
Thompson reached for a sharp paper-cutter.
"And interrupted the governor lec
turing me generally, including this rui-vertiseni-nt.
Mrs. Thompson seemed
very unhappy, and undeterred by tho
governor's preseuce, stated that she
esired my influence to assist her in
savingyou from a terrible mishap and
restoring J'ou to your sound senses. In
brief, old boy, she spoke of your adver
tisement in to-day's paper, and of the
bold, bad woman that was ruining
you '
Townsend looked a3 if ho would
choke, and Thompson felt the edge of
the paper-cutter carefully.
"The governor sprang up," contin
ued Townsend, holding on to his sides,
"grasped me by tho hands, called me
his pure-hearted, noble boy,' and told
your wife of all your my flirtations.
conso;ed, then blessed her, ana rushed
out. Mrs. Thompson behaved like a
trump, and left your reformation in my
liar-is as she went from my office."
Thompson rose slowly.
"You you" ho spluttered, flour
ishing the paper-outter.
"Of course I am!" roared Townsend,
backing to the door. "But what did
yo.i play such a joke on that dear little
woman for? She ought never to for
give youP
The door opened suddenly behind
Townsend, and in came a young fellow
with a savage look and a quick step.
The latter carried him straight up to
Thompson, and the former looked him
over from head to heels.
"II w dare you, sir, tell your wife
that the woman I am to marry rode on
a car, dressed as tho goddess Ceres, in
Lord Mayor's Show?"
Thompson fell back in his chair in a
state of collapse, while Townsend skir-.
mished near tho door, waiting for an

"Yes, sir!" roared tho outraged
lover, beginning to take his steps with
very little regard for time. "This

on the young lady and had aa inter

of being a circm rider, engaged to

rising from his chair with a respectful
bow; "and am ready to make any apo

to whom I am innocent of any discour
tesy, except through an idle jest to my
wife. Pray go with mo to tho lady's
house, and. humiliating as it is, I will
make a full explanation."
This was done to the lady's and tho
lover's satisfaction, and then, with a
fjrave face. Thompson turned his steps
How would his wife receive him? His
cheek burned at the mortifying blow

said :

ing close to him in fervent thanksgiving
that it was "ad a joke,", ho then and
there made a vow never to perpetrate
another joke, and ho kept it.

It was at Dallas. II j was Benona
Burch, a private of the 4th Michigan
cavalry, A line had been pushed for
ward on the rizht of Logan's corps to
turn the flank of tho enemy. Tho ad
vanco met a shaqi musketry fire but
pushed steadily forward across an open
field, driving the enemy and gaining a
position on the edge of the woods,
which was held. Burch, in crossing
this field was mortally wounded, and
was carried to the rear in an uncon
scious condition. A few moments later,
on reviving, he eagerly asked for
"Mart," his messmate, and taking his
hand, with the death rattle in hi$
throat, a smile on his face, his frame
twisted into contortions with agon', he
exclaimed : "Mart, tell them I died at
my post and give them good-by." His
eyes close, his hands fall by his side,
