a tari¿í which forbade!
laborers to come in, but admitted
goods free, no manufacturer of goodfc
would say that it helped him, while
many laborers would think it helo
ed them, and with good reason too.
We have, in fact, a tariff which for-
bids the goods to come in but admits
the cheap laborers free; yet strange
to say, the laborer thinks it benefits:
htm! Obviously the laborer does
not sell géoda; lie sells labor in or-
der that he may buy gooda. Yet hi
thinks lie is benefited by a policy o)
admitting labor to cheapen it and
excluding goods to make them deal-

Young Marriott Couple, f ' " j'j '
They had been married three weeks,
and had just gone to house-keeping.
He was starting down-town one morn-
ing, and she followed him to the door.
They had their arms wrapped around
each other, and she was saying:
"0!i, Clarence, do you think it pos*
sib'e that the day can ever come when
we will part in anger?"
"Why, 110, little puss," he said, i
"Of course not; what put that foolish
idea into my little birdie's head, eh?"
4'Oh, nothing, dearest I was only
thinking how perfectly dreadful, it
would bo if one of us should speak
harshly to the other."
"Well, don't think of such wicked,
utterly impossible things any more,"
he said. "We can never, never q uar-
4*1 know it, darling. Good-bye, yon
dear old precious, good-bye. and—oh,
wait a second, Clarence; I've written
a note to mamma; enn't 3-011 run
around to the house and leave it for
her some time to-day?1'
"Why, yes, dearie; if I have time.
"If you have time? Oh, Clarence!
"What is it, little girlie?1'
"Oh, to say if you 4have time' to do
almost the very first errand your little
wife asks you to do."
4Well, well, sissic, I'm awfully busy
44Too busy to please me? Oh, Clar-
ence, you hurt my feelings so."
"Why, child, " '

"What- have I said or done?"
"As if you need to ask! But go.
Hate me if you will, Clarence; I"
"This is rank nonsense!"
"I'll go back to mamma if you want
me to. She loves me if you don't."
"Y u must be crazy!"
"Oli, yes, sneer at me, ridicule me.
Perhaps you had better strike me!"
He bangs the door, goes down the

tering something about women beinp
the "queerest creatures."
