' No, there's too big n mortgage on the house,' replied the owner, cheerfully. He was Candid. — Tramp : ' No sugar nor milk in my coffee, muni, please. Sugar is bad for me, and milk gives me dyspepsia.' Lady : ?' You are very careful of your health.' Tramp: 'It's necessary, mum. If I didn't keep my health, I couldn't trump about as a sick num.' Mistress (to new cook) : ' Bridget, the soup is quite cold. Didn't I tell you to warm the tureen T' Bridget : ' Yis, mum, but I thought the soup wud warrum it.'

The minister, naturally much; annoyed at the interruption, called upon the pew-opener to put out the dog ; and he a once expressed his readiness to obey th order, but could not resist the temptation tc look up to the pulpit, and to say very signifi cantly : ' Aye, aye, sir ; but indeed it wa yourself began it.'
