'Very. sir.J ^Because my dear little wit*tftju are bound togeathcr by wires.' 'My dear Latitner Leary, yoa talk enigmas.' 'Then, sir, to be plain as a primer, I will inform you that I was married by telgraph.' 'You don't say so!' 'Yes I do. 'Then tell the company '"all about the affair.' 'I wili uitli pleasure. Ladies and gentlemen, my wile is a second oous in, and was a Leary. She onco resi ded in the city ot Indianapolis, while I was a resident ot the town of Centerville, in the same State.' 'I was a bachelor ot thirty, but full of romance and general love. I say geueral love, because I had not made a concentration. 'Why don't you take a wile?' was eternally buzzed in my ears. 'Whom will I take?' To this query a score of friends would say: 'Kate Leary! why, she is my own cousin.' 'Only a second cousin,' the/ would retort, 'and your opposite, Latimer. Kate is a blonde, and you are dark as Erebus, or the aoe ot clubs. I never bad seen Miss Leary, but this continued association ot young lady with my future weddiog lite had an iutlueuce.
One day a member of Congress ex olaimed, 'Mr. Leary, were, I single, I should assuredly pay court to your cousin. As I am married, and you are my best friend, I can earnestly hope you will posess the treasure.' At this period I was a merchant. Having discharged a thieving clerk, was so couiined to my .-tore that a journey to Indianapolis was out ot the question. I was growing almost wild to see one of whom all praised —so many wished me to wed. In a tew days trom tho call of my legislative triend hie brother, noted judge appeared at my store. The judge was also my devoted ally—a position intensified by his reoolection ot being educated by my deceased father Drawing a daguerroetypa from his coat, said he 'I wish to show you something nice. There, what do you say to that?' 'Who is that?' I cried, with enlhu Miasm. 'This, my dear friend, is Miss Kate Leray, the young lady I wish you to marry.' Tell me,' exclaimed I, 'is she all they claim tor her.' 'My dear triend, honestly, as value truth, I have not heard her sufficiently praised!' 911s 1 'Why don't some man Ity Ills luck?' [*", 'I'm glad you askea. Simply be cause she is overoourted: and con sequently hard to please. She is ro mantic, and I clearly see not wmna ble by ordinary methods. 'Then good-bye lor me.' 'Not, at .ill she is rapturous over your likeness, and sends her cousin ly love, with an invitation to visit her. I pledge you of not omiting a single point iu your body calibre or character.' 'Do you consider her dagurrotye accurate?' •I can tell you it den't flatter her.

I remem ber it was midnight. I hinted from my store tho last batch of chronic lounger,«, and selected tho best sta tionary in my establishment. I was to write my iii st letter to Kate. Such a reply as I received! Well —you must seek—you shall see it. JI have good gas works but am inad equate. In a briel time we learned that each knew the othor well. The much said by so many mutual friends superadded to our dugurrotypes and lettors, made us a comprehending couple. In fact we confessed our love—a full, round, and luscious article. There could be uo uusafety in the course. Our linaege was in common, and every fact known, what followed is clear—yes, between unseen lovers and cousins. 1 was dying to fold her to my heart, but my busiuess and maturing [appointments were such that person al visits to her must be postponed I indefinitely. What did you'eay Why did 6he not visit some of our friends at Cen terville? I answer you cheerfully. She had her notioun, and would en tertain them. Though we were pligh ted, she dtol ircd it should not be said that she made tho first visit. Many believe her right. 1 don't ar gue the point, but merely answer the question. eeks passed. Cotters were nu merous and saccharine. Tho time arrived when I could endure my -sin gle condition no longer. What it some one were to cut me out at tho 9 tViM, determined to own her','eveti AYS it not seo her for a decade. Au idea dawned—a brilliant one. It was to compass a speedy marriago and satisfy her thirst for romance. After a flood of tenderness, ot dra matic preparation, I wrote: my adored one, lot us depart from this stalo routine, and wed by telegraph.' Tho idea took her by storm her answer was somewhat characteristic. It ran thus: 'Darling, I will, The Idea is roman tic, but is it legal ?T Immediately I sent for my friend, the Judge. Soon as he faced me, I said—Judge, is a marriage by tele graph logal V Certainly sir I see no objection to a contract by telegraph. I readily see how all these requirements can bo accomplished.' 'Will you state this opinion on pa per, and describe a formula tor an electric wedding 'With pleasure, sir.' The Judge understood me and gladly complied. The result I tor warded to Kate by return mail, and soon received word that on tho fol lowing Thursday, she and the proper authority would present themselves at tho Indianapolis oflioe according to formula, there to enter the holy state ot matrimony. 1 tell you the appointed day was a great one among the mutual friends at each end of the wire. The affair was so novel that all else was totally cclipsed, even by the contemplation ot it.' Clergymen and witnesses assem bled at the termini. There, in full costume, two unseen lovers were to be made man and wife. The instru ment began its tick tick-ticking. Tho operator read, the clereyman put the questions, 1 answered the instru ment did more work, and soon I was saluted as the husband ot Kate Lea ry. Ilappy man was I, although I was the possessor of a. lady I had never beheld. One week passed, and 1 was still without help. My braiu was becom ing frenzied. I must see Kate, and I must go to her fir.st, tor it was ber fiat, and well did I know what a Leary was. By entreaty, I prevailed npon a brother merchant to loau me his best clerk. Soon as he put his foot iu the store I put miue in the stage, en route for the oapitol oity of In diana. When about twelve miles from the city we stopped tor a passenger. It was a lady. Such a beauty I never beheld. She resembled my likeness of Kate, but was far more beautiful. I own, my heart went out to her. Call me tickle, say what you please, and I will bear it, still, repeat, my heart gushed forth a flood ot love. Here was a fir!

The lady was also married, for i heard the driver call her madam. How she eyed me I spoke abollt. the coach windows being raised to suit her. She thanked me in tones that ast* ed like an arterian stimulant. I t*i§ gone. Much conversation followed and I was goner. I saw sha was giving me Bweet, yet pleading looks. Heavens, thought I, she is unhappily mated. Suppose I give liar my sym pathy. "i et should 1 jeopardizo my» self before such transceudant charms. Suppose I betray my love bow would 1 leel in the presence ol my wife, and what power could I confer apon a total stranger I had it, 1 would betray nothing, but offer consolation to a flower most surely neglactod. Wc are'the only passengers, what a' good chance! 'Madam.' said I, 'please pardon mo, but you seem to exist under a cloud.' She sighed deeply. I saw she was much effected, but evidently not indignant at my pre*' sumption. then made bold to ven-' ture the inquiry— 'My dear madam, are you a wid ow 'No, sir, not a widow, though I do not live with my husband.' 'I'oor soul, continued I. Sho put her handkerchief up to her mouth. I thought about half of it went in, but of courso that was to stop her' emotiou. 'You are not happy, madam.' 'Very tar trom it, Bir. I am miser able.' So was I—miserable arras around her neck. 'Where do you reside, madam 'In Indianapolis.' 'Have you.friends there V 'Many, sir.' 'No doubt of it. Allow me to ask, da you love your husband to put mj 1 'Devotedly, sir.' 'Then you will livo with him?-' 'Y\ ould bo glad of the chance,' sir. 'When did you see him last 'I have never seen him, sir.'

I have never felt ashamed of my inconsistency would not lose her for tho wealth ot th# Orient I ever considered us as bound together by wire, and when asked it lama married maul always feel like saying—very. The Man in the Moon. The inquiry ol & subscriber is hard to answer. Tho origin ot tho ex pression, "Man iu the Moon," is un kuown. This nane has trom time immemorial been applied to the darjc lines and spots upon tho surface of tho rnoou, which are visible to thb naked eye, and which when viewed through a (rood telescope, are dis covered to be the shadows of lunar mountains. It is one of the mos*v popular aud most anoient superstit ions ot the world that theso linos aud spots arc the figure of a man leaning on a fork on whioh he oarrio* a bundlo of thorns or brushwood, tor stealiug which on a Suuday be waa confined to the moon. The account given in Numbers xv. et ceq., of a man who wa* stoned to death tor gathering sticks ou Sunday, is sup* posed by some to be the origin of this belief. Dante supposes Cain t# have been the offender who was placed eternally in the moon for pun ishment ot his crime. Some of thai old poets thought these spots and lines represented the boy Endymoig, "whose company the moon loved so well that she carried him constantly with her." Other ancients thought they represented a fox. Concerning the cutting down of salaries by the Iowa Legislature, tlio Fairfield Ledger makes the following very sensible remarks: "The Legislature cut down tl|t pay ot Supervisors, while engag§ on Committee work to 11.50 per da|r. This is an insult to any competent man who may serve as Supervisor. Does the Legislature suppose any man is going to give his time to tho Etoes ublic interests for $1.50 per day? the Legislatute suppose aay competent man will look at the office It is a direct premium to incompetency, and no competent man will cousent to servo on tho board. Ono dollar and fifty oents a day, and his board and expenses to pay out of that! Thero is no honor connected with the office to make up for the insufficient pay." Can a civil eugeneerinform us how it is that tho months of rivers ipv larger than their heads.
