TEX STKFATHJZIIVO WOKAH If we were called upon to describa Mis. Dobbs, we should, without hesita tion, call her a sympathising woman. Nobody was troubled with any malady she hadn't suffered. She knew all aboat it by experience, and ooald sympathise with them from the bottom of her heart. Bob Turner was a wag, and when on# day he saw Mrs. Dobbs coming along the road towards his house, he knew that, in the absence of his wife, he should be called upon to entertain her, and ha resolved to play a little on the good wo man's abundant store of sympathy. Hastily procuring a large blanket, ha wrapped himself up in it, and threw him self on a sofa near by. 44 Why, good gracious! Mr. Turner are you sick ? " asked Mrs. Dobbs, at she saw his position. "Oh, dreadfully !" groaned the imag inary invalid. " What's the matter ? " 44 Oh! a great many things. First and foremost, I've got a congestion of the brain." 44 That's dreadful," sighed Mrs. Dobbs. 44 I came pretty near dying of it ten years come next spring. What else?" 44 Dropsy," again groaned Bob. *4 There I can sympathize with you. I was troubled with it, but finally got oyer it." 44 Neuralgia," continued Bob. "Noboby can tell. Mr. Turner, what I've suffered from neuralgia. It's an awful complaint." 44 Then, ajrain, I'm very much dis tressed by inflammation of the bowels." 44 If you've pot that, I pity you," com mented Mrs. D bbs; " for three years steady I was afflicted with it, and I doa't think I've fully recovered yet." 44 Rheumatism,'' added Bob. 44 Yes, that's pretty likely to go along with neuralgia. It did with me." 44 Toothache,'' suggested Bob. 44 There have been times, Mr. Turner,'* said the sympathizing woman, 44 when I thought 1 should have gone distracted with the toothache." 44 Then," said Bob, who, having tem porarily run out of his stock of medical terms, resorted to a scientific name, "I'm very much afraid that I've got the teth yasrnus." 441 shouldn't be at all surprised," said the ever-ready Mrs. Dobbs. 441 had it when I was young." Though it was with great difficulty that he could resist laughing. Bob con tinued : 441 am suffering a great deal from a sprained ankle." 441 hen you can sympathize with me, Mr. Turner. I tprainsd mine when I was comiDg along." 44 But thai isn'4t the worst of it." 44 What i*u ?? asked Mrs. Dobbs, with curiosity. 141 would'nt tell any one but you, Mrs. Dobbs,but the fact is," here Bob groaned* 4' I'm afraid, and the doctor agrees with me, that my reason is affected ; that, in short, I am a little eraay." Bob took breath and wondered what Mrs. Dobbs would say to that. "Oh, Mr. Turner, is it possible?" ex claimed the lady. 44 It's horrible! I know it is. I frequently have spells of being out of my head myself!" Bob could'nt stand it longer ; be burst into a rear of laughter, which Mrs. Dobba taking for a precursor of a violent par oxysm of insanity, she was led to take a hui ried leave. 44 Mind tour Stops" is a good rule in writing as well as in riding. So in pub lic spealemg, it is a great uticg to know when to stop and where to stop. Tha third edition of a treatise on English punctuation h*3 been recently published, with all nee'utul writers, but none for speakers. The author furnishes the fol lowing example of the unintelligible, produced by the want of pauses in the right places: 44 Every lady in this tand Hath twenty nailt upon each hand i Five Mid twenty on hand* and feet. And th:H m true without deceit" If the present points be removed, and others inserted, the true meaning of the passage will at once appear: " Every lady in the 'and Hath twenty nails ; upon each hand Five; and twenty on hands and feet. And this if true without <loceit." Mr. llcNair was a man of few words, and wrote to his nephew at Pittsburg the following laconic letter: Dear Nephew, ; To which the nephew replied by r^ turn of mail: Dear Uncle, : The long of this short was, that tha uncle wrote to his nephew, 44 See my coal on," whioh a semicolon expressed; and the youngster informed his uncle that the coal was shipped, by simply saying, 44 col-on."?Harper's Magazine. Women vs. Oxen.?A certain clergy* man once addressing his audience in tha southern part of New Jersey, had (02*% sion to quote Luke XIV, 16 ?20: 44 A cer tain man made a great supper, and bade many, and sent his servant at supper time, to say to them that were bidden, 4Come, (or all things are now readj.* And then they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto hi in, 41 have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it; I pray thee have me excused-' And another said: *1 hava bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them; 1 pray thee have me excused.* And another said, 41 have married a wife; and therefore I cannot come.' " "Now," said the venerable clergyman, "yon sea the man that had bought the land merely wished to be excused. The man that had bought five yoke of oxen merely wished to be excused; but the man had married the wife said positively^ 4theref>re,(for this reason) I cannot come.* So you see, my hearers, that a woman can draw a man further from God than five yoke of oxen."
