The Hartford Courant says, “Most people, we venture to say, get up in the morning when they feel that they need more sleep— all their system craves it. They force their nerves into activity. The tired brain has to be roused before it has rested, and it is some time hours before it can be worged up to the activity required. This is exactly like working delicate machinery without oiling it, and it is no wonder it so often creaks and so often breaks down. We daily, for lack of sleep, draw upon our reserved capita', aud spend the principal before the interest ma tures.’’ _ A Struggle with a Stove-Pipe. Putting up a stove is not so difficult in It self. It is the pipe that raises four-fifths of the mischief and all the dust. You may take down a stove with all the care in the world, and yet that pipe won’t come together again as it was before. You find this out when you arc standing in a chair with your arms full of pipe and your mouth full of of soot. Your wife is standing on the floor in a posi tion that enables her to see you, the pipe and the chair, and here she givc3 utterance to these remarks that are calculated to hasten a man into the extremes of insanity. Her drc3s is pinned over her waist, and her hands rest on her hips. She has got one of-your hats on her head, and your linen coat on her back, and a pair of rubbers on her feet. There is about five cents’s worth of pot black on her nose, aud a lot of flour on her chin, and alto gether she is a spectacle that would inspire a dead man with distrust. And while you are up there trying to circumvent the awful contraries of the pipe and telling that you know some fool ha3 been mixing it, "she stands safely on the floor and bombards you with such domestic mottoes as “What's the use of swearing so?” “You know no one has touched that pipe.” “You ain't got any more palisnce than a child.” “Do bo careful of that chair.” And then she goes off and reappears with an armful more of pipe, and before you are aware of it she has got that pipe so horribly mixed up that it does seem no two pieces are alike. You join the ends, and work them to and fro, and to and fro again, and then you take them apart and look at them. Then you spread one out and jam the other together, and mount them once more. But it is no go. You begin to think the pieces are inspired with life, and ache to kick them through the nimiun. xjui> buu uuesu i lose Her patience. She goes around with that awfuliy exasper ating rigging on, with a length of pipe under each arm and a long-handled broom in her hand, and says she don’t see how it is some people never have any trouble putting up a stove. Then you miss the hammer. You don’t see it anywhere. You stare into tbs pipe along the mantel, and down on the stove, and off to the floor. Your wife watch es you, and is finally thoughtful enough to in quire what you are looking after, and on learning, pulls the article from her pocket. Then you feel as if you couid go out doors and swear a hole twelve feet square through a block of brick buildings, but she merely ob serves: “Why on earth don't you speak when you want anything, and not stare around like a dummy.” When that part of the pipe which goes through tho wall is up, she keeps it up with the broom, while yon are making the connection, and stares at it with an intensity that is entirely uncalled tor. All the while your position is becoming mero and more interesting. Tho pipe don’t go together, of course. The soot shakes down into your eye* and mouth, the sweat rolls down your face and tickles your chin as it drops off, and it seems aa if your arms arc slowly but surely drawing out of their sock ets. Here your wife comes to the rescue by in quiring if you are going to be all day doing nothing, and if you think her arms are made of cast iron; and then the broom sliys off the pipe, and in her endeavor to recover her hold she jabs you under the chin with the handle, and the pipe comes down on your head with its load of fried soot, and then tho chair tilts forward enough to discharge your feet, and you come down on the wrong end of that chair with a force that would bankrupt a Pile driver. You don’t touch that stove again You leave your wife examining tho ehaiTand bemoaning its injuries; and go iijto th« kitch cn and wash your skinned and bleeding bands with yellow soap, Then you go down street after a man to do the business, and your wife goes over to the neighbor’s wither, fhed^ il^^?titS,,n|uries. and draiD’ the neighborhood dry of its sympathy longbe fure you get home—Lanbv^ Wears MISCEltiJIEors NOTICES.
