The wife knew that whether she boiled it, or fried it, or made it into cho\Y<ler, her husband would scold her when he came home. She, therefore, cooked portions of it in several different ways, that for once, if possible, he might be pleased with his dinner. She did more, she secured a frog, from the brook back of the house, and put it into a large dish. At noon Zach~riah came home, with his usual fault-finding look. "Well, wife/' said he, " how did you cook the fish? I suppose you've spoiled it for my eating.'' Then, as he took off a cover, he continued: ''I thought so. Why did you fry it? I'd as soon eat a fried frog ! Why didn't you boil it?" "I have boiled some also," said she, lifting a cover and showing the shoulders of a cod nicely boiled. "Boiled fish! chips and porridge," growled Zachariah. "If you had not been stupid, you would have made a chowder." With a smile, she placed before him a tureen of chowder.

A Significant Wink. A great part of what is called a man's success in life depends upon his finding out in good season what his natural bent is, and then following it.
