Flr t Silver Wcddlnjr.
According to a historian , this lg the
way the Orst silver wedding came
about. It was In the time of Iluguca
Caput. Two of his most faithful serv
ants , n man nud n woman , had grown <
gray In his employ , now could ho re I
ward them ?
Calling the woman , he said : "Your
service Is great , gruater than theman's ,
whose service Is great enough , for the
woman always finds work harder than
a man , and therefore I will give you n
reward. At your ngo I know of none
better thnn a dowry nnd n husband.
The dowry Is here. This fnrm from
this tlino forth belongs to you. If this
man who has worked with you for five
and twenty years Is willing to marry
you , then the husband Is ready. "
"Your majesty , " said the old peasant ,
"how Is it possible thnt we should mar
ry , having already silver hairs ? "
"Then it shall be a silver wedding. "
And the king gave the couple silver
enough to keep thorn Iu plenty.
Such was the origin of the silver
wedding , n custom which , spreading all
through France , subsequently became
known to the world.
1'olntn on n Lobster.
A lobster la found in the water , but
not nlwnys in fact , some of tlio most
successful lobsters thnt ever lobstercd
were born nnd raised on dry land.
Ono cnn usually toll n lobster by Its
actions. For Instance , If n young man
enters a crowded drawing room nnd
walks all over the foot of the assem
bled guests without their consent or
approval the young man at once be
comes n lobster.
The fathers of lobsters usually have
money. In fact , It Is difficult to bo a
real stand up and fall down lobster
unless the lobster's father has money.
It Is nn odd fact thnt many girls
seem to admire lobsters. It would
seem that a girl ought to know bettor ,
but she doesn't until she marries a
lobster. Then she tumbles.
Lobsters have no brains. If you
don't believe it , split a lobster's head
open with an as if you don't care any
thing about the ax.
This world would bo a much more
desirable abiding place If there were
no lobsters In It. Ohio State Journal.
