In tlio last six inonths IVe mude a hundred thousand dollars - six inonlhs more and I shall have enough." A lady sat hehind the speaker, and necessarily heard his remark ; but whcn he was done she tapped him on the shonlder, and said to him : ' Sir, I had two sons -one of them was killed at the batlle of Fredericksburg, the othur was killed at the battleof Murt'reesboro." She was silent a moment, and so were all aroutid who heard her.
