I" HUMOUR. A LARGE FAMILY. MrsTRss-" That young man who called to see you last night, Jane, stayed very late." Jane- It was my brother, mum." But, Jane, I have noticed thirty-seven different young men in your company within the past two years, add each one, you said, was your brother." I I Yes, mum. Poor folks allers have large families, mum." AN IRISH BULL. AND remember," said the doctor to the young man, after giving him a prescription, if you wish to get well, take only one cigar after each meal." "Very well," said the patient, sadly, and went away. A few weeks later he returned to say that his health was greatly improved. "But I wish, doctor," he added, that you could let me off that cigar after each meal. Yon see I had never smoked till you told me to, and I don't really think I am any the better for it. HARD ON THE PARSON. THE illiterate whites in the mountains of Ten. nessee and Georgia have a keen sense of humour, and, despite their ignorance, are at times witty. It was related that Sam Small, at the end of one of his breezy sermons, requested those of his hearers who wanted to go to heaven to rise. Every one in the house but one man rose. Then Sam asked those who wanted to go to hell to get up. A tall, lean mountaineer rose, pointed a long, bony finger at Small, and said—"It 'pears, parson, that you and me's the only fellers standin." HUSBAND AND WIFE. MY dear, look down below," said Grandiose, as he stood on Waterloo Bridge with his wife, and gazed at a panting tug hauling a long line of barges, such is life; the tug is like a man, work- ing and toiling, while the barges, like women, are "I know," interrupted Mrs G., acridly, the tug does all the blowing, and the barges bear all the burden." POOR BUT HONEST. IN Cooperstown they tell a story of an English joker who once visited Fenimore Cooper. Cooper was then the most eminent man in the little town. One day, while Cooper was dining with the Eng- lishman, he poured out some native wine-wine from grapes raised in his own garden. Taking up a glass, and looking through it with pride, Cooper, remarked, "Now, Mr Stobbiags, 1 call this good honest wine." Yes, Mr Cooper, I agree with you. rt is honest wine, poor but honest."
