" DON'T TALK TILL YOU SEE FLYNN1" Mr. Peters has a tailor named Timothy Flynn in his employ. 'The domestic affairs of Timothy' and his wife are not conducted with harmony.- ;Broked heads and. dis membered articles of furniture frequently attest this fact. Mrs. Flynni usually accom panies Timothy when he goes to the office on Saturday eveningto draw his wages; and as there is a difference of opinion between Mr. and Mrs. Flynn as to which of them has the right to assume the responsibilities of' the position of financial agent of the family, the proceedings are often of a tumultuous nature. One Monday Timothy did not come to work. On Tuesday Mr. Peters went to his house to see him. He met Mrs. Flynn at the door. A black eye a bruised nose, and a trium-: phant smile were her most prominent fea-. tures. " " You seem to have been having a devil of a time, Mrs Flynn," said Mr. Peters; you are all broken up. :Has " "Don't talk, Mr. Pethers. Lord love ye, don't"talk till' ye see Flynn !"
