"How lie you, this luoriiiu', Squire Dun
"Oil, iniddlin', Miss Patty ; iiiiddlin'.
Hain't quite no spry an I was twenty sld
years ago, but hold oil a hit and I'll help
you down." And so saying Alderman Ki
Dunning reached up a large fat hand ami
CUMHI Miss Patsy's descent from the one
horse shay that old DoaOO was tugging at,
evidently not wishing to tarry,for she soem
ivl instinctively to conclude that if Miss
Patty slopped there w as no telling when she
would assume her journey. •
You see, though Miss Patty wa* a gosl
old soul as ever lived, she was very much
given to harmless gossiping, and she gener
ally tarried long over tho whine when she
U-gau to talk over her own troubles aud
Miss Patty was, as she herself expressed
it, nigh ou to sixty, ami, lu fact, she had
udmiltcd the same thing for a nunils-r of
years, so that most folks put it at seventy
or thereabout*. Just now Miss Patty was
in a js'ck of trouble—she had come down
from tin- Uoschenf farm in search of female
Mrs. Dunning, the hotcl-kecjH'r's wife,
came out to greet the new comer, being al
ways glad to see thu tidy Lily, especially
as Miss Patty Slocum's butter was the U-st
for miles around, ami she ulway* made it a
jioiut to bring some along with ber.
Just now Uncle Si, as most people called
liim, was grunting over the three-gallon of
buttercup yellow creamery.
Mrs. Dunning relieved the butter-maker
of her basket of eggs, and she herself gath
ered up a bunch of garden sass, aud brought
up in the rear its the trio trudged through
the gurdeii and around to the ample hotel
kitchen, Miss Patty remarking,as they were
passing the side piazza :
"I've got U> have some help somehow or
other. I've iuqiiiml all the way along, hut
girls seem to be mighty scarce ; alters the
way these days, when you want 'em to do a
bit of work they are nowhere around. If it
warn't for the rheumatiz—" but right here
Miss Patty's voice was lost, as she turned
the corner of the great house. Though hsd
to view, she was indelibly staiu]M<d on the
memory of the group of girls who sat on the
front piazza, some in low wicker rockers,
one in a hammock, swinging lazily, another
half hidden by the luxuriant woodbine that
clambered up the second story.
"I say,girls,come here, every one of you,"
and the face that had been js-eping from the
woodbine came into full view, aud the dain
ty, muslin clstd lssly sailed down the steps,
and four others, not at all alike, after her
around the west side of the house,aud with
in hearing of all that was said iu the
"Mum is the word, now, girls ; don't you
give an audible smile for your life. 1 think
the party iu the immense sun lmuuet—sha
ker, I suppose you'd call it—is a case ; and
original, too ; and I want to hear what she
is going to say a I suit her help. She makes me
think of old Aunt Hannah,up at the springs.
Tins old iKsiy is just sueh a go-ahead—
sharp as a cricket ; and, except for her
rheumatism, would is.* equal to half a doz
en such girls JUS you and I."
When the girls had reached the desired
spit right under a high window that open
ed out of the bultcry, that was Mrs. Duu
ning's pride, and a marvel of convenience,
bv the by, they ail sat down on a long
wooden bench that was under great over
hanging lilac bushes, just now laden with
immense clusters of the lovely jtcrfuiucd
Rose Ktonclcigh, tin* leader of the group,
put one dimpled finger up to her li|w, and
the others, in "follow your leader" style,
each raised a finger, and they were all as
quiet as mice. Presently, through the win
dow, came the voice of Mrs. Dunning :
"Indeed you must stop a minute, Miss
Slocnin. You'll is* all done out time you
get hack home again."
"No ! thankee all the same. I'll try one
more place, and theu I'll get hack home a
"It's too kid yon can't find anybody.
What is the particular rush, just now ?
Surely haying has not commenced with
"No ; not exnetly, but I've a sight ott
hand just now ; got to do some pie plant
and then them 'ere gooselterries are about
rijH? enough to can, ami in a couple of
weeks the cherries will be on baud, and
pester the hired help anyway. I'd sooner
grub along, anyhow, than bother with any
of them, if it wa'n't for this plaguey rheu
matiz. It kinder ketches me wonst in a
while, and, no use to talk, it takes the
spunk clean out of me. I heard as they had
some sort of lie down to the post-oftice that
was powerful good for sich cases,and I guess
I must get a quarter's worth just to try it.
Feci sort of 'fraid to. too."
"Girls, sit still, and I will le lack iu a
trice," and oft' Hew Rose, skimming past
stately Helen Parker, who still sat on the
piazza, scratching away with her pen on an
oval stand before ber.
"What are you up to now Row Stone
"Can't stop to tell any tils* just now, said
Rosa, as she flew up the hmul stairway and
into her room. Presently she emerged an
altogether different-looking jterson. In the
place of a muslin she had donned a school
girl gingham, a white apron, and a plain
linen collar, her hair ail smoothed down to
get the contrary wrinkles out perfectly nat
ural you know. Down she went, stole ktck
and seized Mrs Dunning'* blue gingham
sun-bonnet, and darting to the wondering
girls, had just time to signal tliein to the
front, when Miss Patty emerged from the
other side and was altout to ascend the steps
of tho comical vehicle. Mrs. Dunning,
turning after her, said : "I hope you'll
succeed in your efforts, Miss Slocum. If I
wasn't so busy I'd let Seliua come up a day
or two and help you out, but you see we
have tho seminary girls—at. least six of
them—and it keeps one kinder busy. Why
what on earth !" Here tho g<x*l old lady
had to stop in shoer amazement, for she rec
ognized Iter sun-bonnet coming toward her
with a little Issly underneath.
Rose did not stop for anything, but sailed
up to Miss Patty, made a demure little bow
and commenced : "Please, ma'am, I over
heard your conversation and thought I'd
offer myself if you think I can strip pie
plant, or could help you in any way ; and
she dropped her white lids as though she
was frightened at her own temerity.
"You dou't look as you could do much.
How much do you expect to get a week,aud
where did you come from ?" queried husi
uess-like Miss Patty.
| "I eauie from over yonder some miles and
have a niek aunt, and want to earn some
j money. Please try me, uiul If 1 don't suit
' I nml not stay."
| "Well, aeein' a* how you caiue lu the
nick of time, and look kind of clip|s<r like,
I'll take you along. Have you any recom
"No-o, I have not, hut Mrs.Diiuuiiig here
knows me ; site did not ex|ieet to see me to
day hunting u place," aud the smiling eyes
were turned uistu the landlord's wife, ami
hid by the sun-lMiiiuet, she made a grimace
at the puulal face that was slowly taking
ill the fun.
"Uli, yes," explained the gssl obi lody,"l
do know ber but I doubt her capabilities re
garding house-keeping. Hut I'd try her if
I were you. You might do worse."
"Can you come right along ? I'd a heap
rather you would, seelu' tut I'm clean tuck
ered out now."
"Oh, yos ; certainly 1 can, Mrs. Dunning,
I left my bundle, a gingham and a few oth
er things, inside. Will you have them
scut ? One reason that I cauie wus that
Cora, over there, used to know iue and I
heard that the girls were going to s|ieud a
part of their vacation here, and theu I
thought I'd kill two birds with one stone if
1 could earn u hit while over." Miss Patty
looked rather suspiciously at the w bite dim
pled hands, and it was Itard telling w hat
was iu her thoughts,:!* she finally drove oil'.
They went down into the heart of the vil
lage,and ltose pulled the siiuboiinet further
down around her face, murmuring "that
the sun was ratlu-r warm."
"Now, we w ill have to wait for the ten
train," said Miss Patty, "and if you will
mind the horse I'll just drop right into the
post office atul get what I want. I exjsi-t
my grand nephew on the train, and if it
happens to txtute in while I'm in hure, you
just keep an eye ojteu for a long, good-look
in* chap with an immense big gilt chain,
and tell him I'll be out as soon as I can git
my lie and lamp chimneys, and other stuff.
Mind the horse now !"
So saying off she went.
Rose sat very quiet for some minutes
peeping from the depths of the bonnet. It
wus dreadful, tills having to wait when she
was in for a frolic. Ten, fifteen minutes
went by when, in the distance, sounded the
"Whew" mimicked Rose, a grand-neph
ew coming. 1 suppose her ideal of a good
looking man is one that can do all maimer of
hard work, and a great gawk of a fellow he
is, I know." Her reverie was interrupted
by the stopping of the train, aud the rush of
passengers getting up and off. With a ting
u-ling. a puff aud a snort, the great engine
steamed out again with a long line of cars
Rose had all she could do to manage the
old mare. When Doane finally Waine
quiet, Rose looked over towards the depot
in search of the gilt chain, that being up
jH-rmost iu ber uiiud. The ]N!sseugcrs had
all gone their ways, except two ; these were
a lady and a gentleman.
There was it cloud of dust, a carriage
drove up, and, amid a shower of greetings,
the lady was helped in, and immediately
driven off. Rose came to the conclusion
that the tall gentleman must Is? the nephew
ainrcsaid, who espying Miss Patty's turn
out came over.
"Excuse me, madam, but I la-lieve this Is
Miss Patty Slocutu's rig, is it not, and, did
site send you down for me ?"
"I'm ill for it now," thought Ihste ; "he
thinks I'm the hired girl, no doubt, but I'll
carry it through or die, for the girls would
make a laughing-stock of nte."
Aloud she said : "You can jump in if
you like ; Miss Slocum will be out present
ly; she is iu the post office, and I expect Iter
every miuute now."
Contrary to her expectations, he seated
himself lieside her, and with a jsdite "Al
low me," he took the reins from her hand.
Miss Patty's watchful eyes had taken iu
all that had occured outside, and now ap
peared at the open door.
"I'll lie there in just three minutes, Tom ;
just make yourself agreeable to the miss;
she's going to help iue a bit for a week or
"I'll wait three hours, Aunty, if you like;
I'm not at all in a hurry and the brown
eyes were as full of mischief as those of
Rose's. Rose's were as blue as the sky,
though they might have beeu green, or yel
low for all the glimpse Tom could get of
He was mentally anathematizing sun-bon
nets of all descriptions,atul wondering if the
tnan who invented them was dead yet ; if
not lie wanted to make a mark of him im
mediately. As the beginning l>eneath the
(to him) hideous structure was rather qui
et, he concluded to bide ids time, aud if it
proved interesting, he meant to liave all the
fun ptssible during his two weeks' stay.
He soliloquized thus : "Now, Aunty is sts
sharp as a steel trap, and if this little niece
here does not toe the mark she won't have
her around,but we'll fix things. I wish she d
throw kick that confounds! headgear, ami
let a fellow see what she is like."
Presently Miss Patty, having oomph*tod
her purchases, steppd out, and was hand
ed into the wagon l>y the clerk, lie lieiug
glad of the excuse to satisfy his curiosity
regarding the occupant* of the front seat.
The sun by this time was getting very hot,
and Miss Patty told Tom to drive along
right smart, a* she had dinner to get yet,
and they h;wl three miles or so to go.
"Why, yes, Aunty, I know the precise
distance, why shouldn't I ; when I lived
there so many years ; seems as though you
have more enterprising folks nbout here
than there was throe years ago."
"Well, yes ; you see since them seminary
girls came seems aa though it is livelier a
bout here ; you know they built the sem
inary, the fall you went away."
Old Doqne did her best, and within half
an hour they were in sight of a white house
with green blinds and lovely trees and im
mense rose bushes. Jest drive around to
the back, Tom, I've got a lot of traps ami I
don't like to lug 'em clear through the
house." Having done as he was desired,he
sprang nimbly to the ground, lieli>od Miss
Patty out, then banded her the bundles,and
very awkwardly knocked off that terrible
bonnet. Rose untied the strings to get a lit
tle air during the drive home. The blue
eyes looked defiance at the brown ones,
while the brown ones had a look that plead
ed, "I'll never do it again, please, ma'am.
Rose followed Miss Patty into the house,
while Tom attended to old Doane. Every
thing was as neat as a pin in the little kitch
en. The low stuffed rockers were inviting
aud Rose sat down. Having found Iter
tongue she weut into raptures over every
thing she saw.
Terms, SI.OO per Year, in Advance.
'What a dear little place you have, soold
fashioiH-d ami NO hoiiielike. I>t me pare
those for you, I'll do It ever NO thin." Hav-
ing IliiUhod her tank she went from one
room to another, and her bright ways and
light step Moon won Miss Patty's OMtoetu
ami ltoHe hail a tlrm friend forever after.
Tom was astonished at the elear pretty
fail* nM he tipjttsi the Ijonnet off her lutad,
ami he mentally resolved to he on his good
behavior, for as he told old I)oane, out In
the barn, "blue eyes, brown hair, short and
plump, and a will of Iter own, which shows
itself iii their blue depths ; full of fun,
though, in fact, Donne, if you'll help me to
manage it, and don't tell aunty .mill it's
all fixed, we'll marry her. That is, of
course, providing she isn't spokeu for before
this and will have its you know."
Itoaue neighed as though she understood
everything, but Tom gave her a whole peck
of oats iu his a I went minded ties.
Two—three weeks glided hy. Torn was a
model of good behavior. Miss Patty was
delighted at the success of her preserving.
Hose learned the art of butter making ; and
she made Tom pick cherries anil lu a hun
dred ways made himself generally useful ;
and though be protested be was sinfully a
busod be could not keep out of the kitchen.
When the three weeks were up ltose de
cided to tell Miss l'atty that she was only a
seminary girl, and that she must go home to
sjiend the holidays.
"I'll tell you what, ltose, if you and Tom
here will hitch horses you might stay right
"Hurrah for Auut Patty I" shouted Tom,
"what do you say, ltose, will you be my
"Oh Turn Shirti in, I have now known you

So in just a inoutli from that day, Rose

Make the Farm Home Pleasant.
Yes ; make it pleasant that the
growing boys and girls will not be
looking forward to the time wben tbey
will be old enough to leave the farm
in search of a pleasanter place. We
knew of a well-to-do farmer, having
eight children, who as soon as tbey are
old enough to support themselves,
leave their home. Of the five boys,
not one remains on the farm. Tbey
have gone to clerkships and other po
sitions in preference to staying on the l
much despised farm. A glance in the
home may account somewhat for this*
There never has been any effort to
make it attractive for the children
The parents' aim has been to work
and save with scarcely a thought that
their children bad any other needs
than food and clothing. Tbey are
active, bright minded boys and girls.
It is no wonder that the dullness and
monotony becomes endurable.
This farmer does not hesitate to
spend money in farm improvements*
in fine stock, or anything that will ad
vance bis financial interest; but any
outlay for the children's pleasure is re
garded as unnecssary andexiravagrant
Children cannot feel that sense of
proprietorship in the farm and its
profits that is a stimulant to the heads
of the households, and somotbing is
needed to take its place. Some per
sonal property, cyen if a chicken or
a pig is a strong incentive. Children
are sportive by nature—all young
animals are—and some diversion is
essential tor leisure hours ; otherwise
their minds will wander off and dwell
on the attractions supposed to pertain
to village and city life.
A few dollars each year invested in
reading matter will not ocly supply
pleasant employment for leisure hours,
but the means of mental improvement
as well. There are somany excellent,en
tertaining publications for the young,
and at such low prices, that no family
in which there are children should be
without one or more. But parents
sbculd discriminate carefully between
a good and a bad class a reading mat
ter, for there is a large amount of a
flashy, sensational character, wholly
unfit for the young to read.
There is no reason why a country
home should not be a place of pleasure
and contentment to every member.
There is a freshness and freedom in
farm life that cannot be enjoyed when
a person is surrounded by brick walls
With pleasant mental recreation for
leisure hours there need be no unhap
py memories of the farm to carry
through life.— American Agricultur

The Comical Mistake Made by Two

The other daj two Indies with be
nevolent faces and s boodle of tracts

distribution of literatUM among the
prisoners, accompan jing each gift with
such words of comfort and adyice ss
circumstances appeared to render nec

time escorted the ladles to the door of
ward two just as Terafcfey Cmndel 1
who was inside the ward at the time,
was coming toward the door. He
stood quietly on the inside among the
prisoners waiting until the ladles had
fioisbed their good work. The latter
made a rather awkward mistake and
concluding that the turnkey himself
was an inmate, the older of the two
offered him a tract

ing the book between the bars, "take

PETEBSON for JULY begins a new vol
ume, and we can honestly say that, excep
tional in merit as it has proved itself this
year, the present number is an advance on
its predecessors. The steel engraving, "The
Pet Rabbit," Is of rare beauty. A new se
rial begins, by Mias Bowman, the popular
Bouthern writer called "Along thej Bayou,'
and to judge from the opening chapters, it
will prove even superior to her former stor
ies. A special interest attaches to the illus
trated payer, "The Princess of Modem Art,"
from the fact that it was the last article ev
er written by Charles J. Peterson, and is
his happiest and most discriminating man
ner. "The Black Trunk," by Mrs. Lacy H.
Hooper, is one of the most original tales we
have read in a long time, and the stories
and poetry in general are far shove the
average of this or any of the huly's-maga
