‘"Sober Second Thought."’

--In our paper of a year ago this week, under the head ‘"Unmarried,"’ appeared the names of a couple who figure to-day under the head of ‘"Married."’ They were divorced in the Superior Court just one year ago to-day, and, after trying the experiment of celibacy for a year, it seems they have concluded to ‘"join teams"’ again. This is an instance of ‘"sober second thought"’ which we so often hear commended, and we trust the illustrious couple will never have occasion to regret their second embarkation on the Matrimonial Ship. We should call this a romance in real life. Wonder if Dickens won't write a story about it, entitled ‘"Once a Year."’-- East Haddam (Conn.) Journal.
