His body was laid out in a darkened, retired room_, waiting to be laid away in the lone, cold grave. His afflicted mother and bereaved little sister went in to look at the sweet face of the preci ous sleeper, for his face, was beautiful even in death.

Family Bdcordi The post office in a town in Dixie was kept in the bar-room of a tavern, a great resort for loungers. An old chap more remarkable for his coarseness and fidelity than for his manners, was sitting there one day with a lot of his boou companions, when the Methodist minister, a new aomer, entered and asked for letters. Old Swipes spoke up bluutly, "Are you the Methodist parson just com* here to preach ?" "I am," pleasantly replied the minister. "Well," said Swipes, " will yon tell me how old the devil is?" "Keep your own family record," replied the minister, and left the house amid the roars of the company.
