Uncle Ephraim had put on a clean collar and his best coat, and was walking majestically up and down the street.
"Aren't you working to-day, Uncle?" asked somebody.
"No, suh. I'se celebrating' mah golden weddin' suh."
"You were married fifty years ago to-day, then!"
"Well, why isn't your wife helping you to celebrate?"
"Mah present wife, suh," replied Uncle Ephraim with dignity, "ain't got nothin' to do with it."
