How his Trousers got Shortened.
A certain gentlom^Bypurchased
a pair of pants a few days ago,
which, upon being tried on at home,
he found to be too long. That
night he remarked to his wife that
ho wished her to take off about
au inch from each leg, which would
make them tho desired length. Be
ing fond of teasing her husband,
she told him that she shouldn’t do
au^’thiqg qf^tljjq kind, and he retir
ed without having obtained a prom
ise from her that she would utteud
to the matter.
Boon after he had left for his
room, liywever, she, as a matter of
course, clipped off the superfluous
inch, as she had boon asked to do.
The family is composed of six le-
malo members, and each one of the
five, who wore in adjoining rooms,
heard tho dispute lMwoon man
and wife, and after ’Itio latter had
taken off tho inch and retired, the
old Judy, desiring to ‘keep peace
iu the family,’ and not knowing
what her daughter-in-law had done,
cautiously slippod into tho room
and cut off another inch.
In this ivay did each of the five
ladies, unknown to the other, and
all witli the praiseworthy object of
preventing any misunderstanding
between tho couple, clip an inch
from tho legs of the gentleman’s
The following morning, all un
conscious of wlmt Had taken place
during tho night, he rolled up his
pants in a piece of paper, and took
them to the tailor to be shortened
to the desired length. Upon a
hasty glance tho latter ventured
the opinion that they were already
shortened, but the latter insisted
that they were fully ail inch too
long. The tailor had no more to
say, and our friend retired.
On the following Saturday ho
called for the pants and took them
home, and was supremely disgus
ted at finding that the legs reached
only a trifle below the knee. He
straightway accused the tailor, but
his wife heard him, and came to
the rescue, explaining that she had
taken off an inch from each of the
legs, and her acknowledment was
followed by that of each of the
other five ladies, when it was dis
covered that altogether the legs
had been shortened to the extent
of seven inches.
