"No, George," faltered the maiden, "I fear it cannot be. I admire you as a gentleman, I respect you as a friend, but ." " Laura," he exclaimed, " before you pass sentence hear me out. A recent lucky stroke in business has enabled me to buy a beautiful home on Prairie avenue, which shall be in your name. I will insure my life for 25,000d01, and ." "George," calmly interposed the lovely girl, "you interrupted me. I was about to say that the sentiments of respect and esteem I feel for you, though so strong, are feeble in comparison with the deep love which—which—l—which I have long—don't, George, dear!" For George had interrupted her again. A minister's little daughter, who had been to church for the first time, and heard her father preach, was questioned by him on reaching home as to how she liked his sermon. There was an embarrassed silence; then the little maid, tired out with the long strain of "being good," and yet anxious not to offend in anywise made answer, with a little long-drawn breath of patient resignation, "You preached awful long, papa, but I beared it." A lady living in Ohio is the mother of six boys. One day a friend calling on her said : " What a pity that one of your boys had not been a girl." One of the boy 8, about eight years of age, overheard this remark, and promptly interposed: " I'd liko to know who'd 'a bin 'er; I wouldn't 'a bin 'er; Ed. wou Idm t 'a bin 'er; Jo© wouldn't 'a bin 'er; and I'd like to know who'd 'a bin 'er."
