"True as Gospel."

--A dashing young widower in one of the Southern States, by the name of ‘"Fowler, "’ took quite a liking to a young lady whose name was ‘"Cloud,"’ and whose flashing eyes dealt largely in electrical influences. During their courtship, which was somewhat of a public affair — town and country drives being the order of the day — the gentleman's friends frequently expressed their regret at his becoming so beclouded. After their marriage one of them congratulated him on the happy occasion, at the same time expressing the hope that though long ‘"beclouded,"’ he would have clear sunshine before him the rest of his days. A by- stander at this abook his head, and gravely replied that invariably when ‘"Clouds" ’ turned ‘"Fowler,"’ you might look out for squells.
