Mr. Bumlile Timothy Bumble,
liacliflur from Spadunk sat in hin
room the very picture of despair.
That very morning he had arrived at
the man-ion of hh newly married
brother, on a visit of a week or two.
He had felt BOine presentiment of
eril from the time ho had talked of
making the visit ; Bomethiiig had im
pressed him with a vague sense of dan
ger. A ho ascended the Hteps tha'
morning be had not dreamed what the
danger connoted in, nor how very
near, it was.
Now he knew.
"It's a widow ! ' groaned Mr. Bum
ble. "A widow!"
Evidently Mr. Bumble hadn't any
particular love for widows.
"Here I am, an innocent unsus
pecting manv went on Mr. Bumble,
dolefully. "John, who has put his
foot in it by getting married, invites
me down to fee how much like fools
h- and hit; wife can act, and I, like a
Hud, came down. I hardly set my
foot inside the door before John tells
me that there's some one else coming
hi dear Belinda's sister, a widow,
and wich a nice woman, and I eee
through it all in a niinuto. It's all a
plot ! They've got me down here for

Mr. Bumble shook his fist at some
thing in the corner an imaginary
widow, probably, "she's here, and I'll
be persecuted and pestered from morn
ing till night. She knows what John
asd hi" wife have got into their heads
and is willing to help them along in
their wickedness. I wish," Mr.
Humble waxed warm in his gestures
with his earnestness on the subject,
"I winh there was a law abolishing
Hidowp, 1 swear 1 do."
"Bravo for you, Tim!" laughed his
brother John, sticking his head in at
Ihr door. "I'll tell you how you how
yon can begin the reform, and abolish
thi one. Just marry her," and
John withdrew, laughing.

John came back pretty soon. "Are
jrou ready to go down ?" he asked.
"Ye. I s'pose so," answered poor
Mr. Rumble, not very graciously.
"But 111 tell you what it is, John, I'll
not marry her."
John laughed outright. "You
think that getting married is

at Mr. Bumble as she said this, as if
daring him to deny it.
'Tndoubtcdly," responded Mr.
Bumble, feebly, feeling that some
thing was expected ofhim.
"Yes, undoubtedly," repeated Mrs
Blake, "I think you arc n-n.-ible in
making that admission, Mr. Bumble,
and I like you for it."
Mr. Bumble wished he had said that
they had more rights now than they
knew how to take care of, but he knew
that he hadn't moral courage to say
any Mich thing. Tho widow kept him
there all the afternoon. It was a tor
ment to him, but he couldn't get
"Dear!" exclaimed the poor man
that night, in thu solitude of hit cham
ber, "I'm afraid she'll get me corner
ed up and marry me."
I Ii-4 sleep was haunted with widows.
One leaned down from tho headboard
to pull his hair, and one shook her fist
at him from the footboard, while an
other leaned over the side of the bed,
and requested him, in dulcet tones, to
kiss her. That woke Mr. Bumble up,
and not another wiuk of sktip did he
get that night
"Oh, Mr. Bumble!" cried the wid
ow at breakfast, "Belinda says they
have the prettiest view from tho hill
beyond the meadow, and I want to see
it. Won't you go with mo this morn-
Poor Mr. Bumble, consented, be
causo he didn't dare to do otherwise
"I'm in for it," he groaned, as he
went up tairs to get bin duster. "I
hope she won't propose before wo get
back. If she should"
Mr. Bumble was horrified at the
propect. He never had thought of
such a thing before. But this widow
was strongmmded and believed in
"rights." Might not tho right to
propose bo ono of them ? And if she
should propose he knew he never
should dare to say no.
If ever any one deserved connon
izihg as a martyr, Mr. Bumble did
that day. Every hour was a week,
and she insisted on dragging him about
tho wholo forenoon. At last she was
ready to go home, and the poor bach
elor began to revive as tho distance
between them and tho house grew
As they were returning across a pas
ture a cow which had been feeding in
tho further corner saw them and came
toward them. Mrs. Blake was terri
fied and fled to Mr. Bumble for pro
tection. "She won't hurt you," said Mr.
Bumble, comfortingly, edging away
from the widow, who, he was afraid,
contemplated a raid on him under the
plea of fright. "Shoo, boss I Shoo!"
The cow didn't choose to "shoo,"
but came nearer.
"Oh 1" shrieked Mrs. BIAe, fling
ing her arms about me poor man,
"save me 1"
"You old brute !" exclaimed Mr.
Bumble, making a terrible effort to
free himself from th3 widow's clutches;
let us hope fiw tho sako of gallantry,
that his exclamation has reference to
to the cow. "You old brute ! I'll see
if you'll stand thero shaking your
head at me!" and thereupon he
charged at the animal so furiously that
she made an inglorious retreat.
"How shall I ever repay you?"
cried the widow. "I feel that I owe
you my life, and my life-long gratitude
"Don't," said Mr. Bumble, evi
dently greatly touched at her exhibi
tion of gratefulness. " 'Taint worth
,4I wih you'd let me lean on your
arm," said Mrs. Blake faintly; I feel
so weak I can hardly walk. I don't
know but I shall faint Oh !"
Mr. Bumble was aghast at the pros
pect of a fainting widow on his hand?.
Ho grabbed off his straw hat and be
gan to fan her furiously. Presently
she said that she felt better, and took
possession of hi arm, and thoy set out
for home, which was reached after
many halts and much sufferiug on the
part of Mr. Bumble.
"It's getting desperate," said the
persecuted man to himself as ho re
viewed tho events of tho day and
looked the situation boldly in the face.
"A widow will bring things to a crisis
in no time. I wish I was going home
The next evening there was a party
at a neighbor's, and John and Belinda
and Mrs. Blake and Mr. Bumble at
b?ded. Mr. Bumble suppoed, as it
was snJi a short dictance, that they
would aftwalk home together; but
Belinda got a chance to jide, and con
sequently Mr. Bnmble was Jeft to the
painful duty of seeing the widow

that came into hi head, a- drowning
men clutch at straws.
I'd like to have you come up,"
said Mr. Bumble, at a loss to think of
anything to say, and determined that
the conversation should not revert to
the dear departed Mr. Blake.
"Would you, now, really, Mr. Bum
ble?" aked the widow, smiling into
hi" face. "You men are so so fond
of testing us poor women, you know,
that we can hardly ever tell when
you're in earnest. But I do believe
you're in earnest this time. I would
like to come up and see you, I assure
"IDUt my foot in it this time,"
groaned the bachelor. "She'll pro
pose before we get home." Then
aloud, he added, "Yes, I'd like to
have you and Belinda come up and
stay as long as you like."
"What if 1 should like to stay for
life?" laughed the widow. "Oh!"
suddenly appearing to norice what she
had said, "I'm so impulsive Mr.
Bumble, that I never stop to think.
What can you think of me?"
Mr. Bumble tried to say something,
but the word) stuck in his throat, and
produced only an unintcllible sound.
"You wih I would? Wai that

"L didn't say it," exclaimed the
suffering man driven to desperation.
"You you misunderstood me.ma'am.'
"Oh, I did! Excuse me. do,"
pleaded the widow ; bow could I have
been so mistaken."
Mr. Brumble did'nt remember the
incidents of tho walk very clearly when
he reached home. He tried to shake
her off at the parlor door, but she
wasn't to be got rid of in that way.
"Come in and sit down, Mr. Bum
blo, do," she urged. And Mr. Bum
ble, cursing himself all tho while for
being such a fool, allowed her to draw
hiin into the parlor, after the fashion
of the fly and the spider, and there he
sat anil suffered for three mortal hours.
More than once he thought the import
ant moment had come and that she
was about to propound tho awful ques
tion. But something Providence, he
called it helped him to avert tho aw
ful fate with which inust have been
his if she had spoken, and he congrat
ulated him-elf as he reached his cham
ber thnt he was still spared to freedom
a little while.
He went to bed and dreamed, lie
thought Mrs. Blade came and in
formed him that sho wa going to
marry him the next day at precisely
half-pait ten. It was terribly real.
He woke up in a cold and clammy
perspiration. Hours passed before he
glept and then ho dreamed. This
time he thousht that he ran away to
escape his awful doom, and the widow
followed him and overtook him. "Oh,
you naughty man !" she cried, put
ting her arms around his neck ; "you
foolish man ! to think you could get
away from a woman so easily, when
she'd made up her mind to marry
you." And then she feel to kissing
him. and he woko up with a scream
and found himself sitting bolt upright
in bed, with a pillow clutched in his
hands as a defense against his perse
cutor. He f ot up and dressed him
self. 'I'm going to get out of this,' he
groaned. 'I won't stay another day
for any money. It ain't safe
Ten minutes afterward sorao one
knocked at John's chamber door.
'Who's theic ?' he demanded.
'Mc-Titnothy,' answered Mr. Bnm
l.le. John got up and came to the door
to find out what the matter was.
'I'm going home,' declared Mr.
Bumble. 'The train goes in fifteen
minutes. 1 thought I'd tell you I
was going, so you wouldn't feel
'Tain't no use,' said Mr. Bumblo,
resolutely; 'I wouldn't stay for any
thing. I'm going now. Take care of
yourself. Goad-by,' and Mr. Burab!e

by the widow, and didn't feel safe till
he reached home.
'Did you enjoy yourself?' a?kd the
old housekeeper, as she got him some
thing to eat. 'You look all worn

you, Betsey, I'm never going away
from home again unless I know it's
safe to do so. I've been persecuted ;
yes, Betsey, persecuted.' Mr. Bum
blo heavd an awful sigh of relief. 'If
any women ever come hero that you
don't know, just lock the door and
don't let 'em in, for goodness' sate.
Tell 'em I'm sick or dead ; that I've
got tho small-pox anything you
please; but don't let em in.'
Mr. Bumble couldn't forget his
dream for several days, and kept a
constant look out for the widow, but
she didn't follow him. He has never
ventured to visit his brother John

Tha Supreme Court of Wisconsin
has rendered a decision which covers
the principal involved in tho Regula
tion law of the State, and the decision
was in favor of the law. The case in
question was between the West Wis
consin Railroad Company and the
Board of Supervisors of Trempeleau
couwty. JThe corporatioa demanded
the cancellation of certain tax certifi
cates on the ground that the land taxed
had been exempt from taxations, orig
inally, and that the Legislature had no
power to repeal the exemption, the
Federal Constitution forbidding legis
lation to impair tho validity of con
tracts. The court held that under the
Constitution of Wisconsin "all general
laws under which corporations without
banking privileges may have been cre
ated may be altered or appealed at any
time by the Legislature of the State."
