A change.

--An inexperienced young bride being asked by her cook to choose for dinners during the honey-moon, was anxious that her ignorance should not peep out. She called to mind one dish, and one dish only, and that she knew by name; it was a safe one, and substantial, too-- ‘"a leg of mutton."’ So, several days the leg of mutton came obedient to the mistress's order. Perhaps the cook was weary of it; at last she ventured to inquire, ‘ "should you not like some other thing to-day, ma'am?"’ ‘"Yes, let us have a leg of beef, for a change."’
