Ho Had Made a Mistake.
He was a keen, sharp-looking young man, and he said to the lady of the house as he stood in the hall“ Madame, I have called for the suit of clothes which needs brushing and fixing.” “ What suit ?” she,asked. “ Your husband’s Sunday suit, ma’am. He called as he went down this morning,” “And he said I was to let you have them ?” “ Yes’m.” “Did be appear in good health and spirits ?’’ “ Why, certainly.” “ Look and act natural?” “Of course. Why do you ask ?” “ Because he has keen dead eighteen years, and I have some curiosity on the subject!” “I—l have made a mistake, perhaps!” stammered the young man. “ Perhaps you have. The man you saw go out of here an hour ago is my brother. Good morning.”
