Blit'kin, removing the pipe from his

low sharply from head to toe.
Despite his rather indolent, effemi

of his education, Luke Jordan was a
fine looking fellow, and not easily

he colored and grew confused beneath
that sharp, scrutinizing look.

As the old man said tin's, he deliber
ately knocked the ashes out of his
pipe against the pillar of the porch
where lie wassilting, tucked it into his
vest pocket, and went into the house.
Pretty Miry lilifkins was waiting
to see her lover down at tho garden
gate, their usual trystiug place. The
smiling light liided from her eyes as
she noticed his sober, discomfited look.
"Father means well," she said, as
Luke told her the result of his appli

about right," she resumed after a
thoughtful pause, "for it seems to me
that every man, be he rich or poor,

Then, she noticed her lover's grave

Luke Jordan suddenly disappeared
from his accustomed haunts, much to
the surprise of his gay associates.
But whereevcr ho went, he carried
with him in his exile these words, and
which were like a tower of strength to
his soul, "I'll wait for you, Luke."
One pleasant,, sunshiny morning,
late in Oetolier, as farmer Blifkins
was proping up the grape vine in his
front-yard, that threatened to break
down with the weight of its luxurious

from which Luke Jordan alighted
with a quick, clastic spring, quite a
contrast to his formally easy leisurely

what he had to say.
The old man regarded his daughter

He nks a pretty steep price for 'em;

As Mr. Blifkins said this, he consi
derately steiuied out of the room, and
wo will follow his example. But the
kind of bargain the 3'oung people
made can readily be conjectured by the
speedy wedding that followed.
Luke Jordan turned his attention

The Trial or J n'. Until
Line of Proceed-
Richmond, October 7. The fol
lowing facts relative to the coming
trial of Jell'. Davis are from tho best
authority : Tho trial is set for the
fourth Monday of November, and as
the Government will not interfere,
there will be no postponement by coun
sel on cither side. The ollense of
levying war against the United States
will bo testified to by Judge Scarbor
ough, of Xorfolk, J on. John Good,
member of the Confederate Congress,
and Captain Henderson, who were
compelled to appear before tho Xor
folk Grand Jury and testify to the
facts upon which the indictment was
made. Thero will be very few if any
witnesses for the defense. The f let of
levying war Icing admitted, the prose
cution will thfii proceed with the legal
argument that the prisoner is guilty of
treason, and counsel for the defense
will argue that he being a citizen of a
State and under its law, a prior alle
giance was due to it, not to tho United
States. It has been positively assert
ed that Judgo Chase would preside,
but as the Supreme Court commences
its session on the first Monday of De
cember, this is not possible. The trial
is expected to fast several weeks,
How to Have Mealy Potatoes.
We find the following credited to
the CrVntriufoiri Telegraph: It is a
very common thing in the Spring to
find strong, watery potatoes on the
table, unless care has been taken to
select and preserve them. A poor
potato is the poorst article of food that
can be had ; ns soon as they begin to
sprout they will begin to grow poor
and watery, the bettor part of the root
going to the support of sprouts; hence,
to have mealy nice potatoes, it is ne
cessary to keep them from exhausting
themselves in this way. An exchange
gives the following method of prevent
ing tho potatoes from sprouting, which
we hope will be tried and approved :
Take good, sound potatoes and place
theiu in a tub or barrel, and pour boil
ing water over them, letting them, re
main in the water until the eyes are
scalded so they will not sprout; dry
the potatoes thoroughly iu the sun,
and put them away in a box or bar
rel iu a cool, dry place. This will
give good mealy potatoes all the time.
Little Savings. We heard once
of an agent for a missionary society
who obtained a generous subscription
from a business man whom he had
heard reproving one of his clerks for
using a whole wafer. The gentleman
told him that by small savings he ac

this (act is greeted with congratula

niond paper, of Monday, states, as an
agreeable item of information, that
within a week, between twenty and
thirty farms in different parts of the
State, have been sold to farmers from

the expectation, on the part of Xorth
ern men, that the reconstruction of the
Union will bo successfully completed,
and that in Virginia they will be able
to prosecute their plans of honest in-'

And those of the old inhabitants of
that Slate, who most wisely consider
their interests both personally and po

intelligence and wealth thus flowing

repulsive manners towards new and

c!lect than to aggravate, as well as pro

good neighborhood and friendship
