but that, I tell you. ' I never knew the lady

“ Indeed!” I remarked, “ then there must
have been a change, truly.”
“ I met Somers in the depot,” continued Bur

Through all his joy, however, I saw that there
was.a vein of sadness; and when I alluded to
his family he appeared embarrassed, and dis
posed to change the subject. I had no object in
wew In visiting Eamshead, other than change of
scene, and did not intend to remain there buti a
day or. two; but meeting Somers led me to think
that it would not be a bad thing to tarry there
awhile, seeing that there was a beautiful pond
of water in the vicinity, os I had seen from the
oarers I came along, and a deep wood, denoting
game. 'Somers used to be great on those things

I looked at him with astonishment, but I

“ When we moved up here things went on in
pretty much the same pleasant way, until there
came to the village a lady whom I had formerly
kown, and about whom and myself there had
been a little gossip in old days. Our acquaint
ance was renewed, and I visited her several
times; made no concealment of my intimacy
with her, and invited my wife to accompany me,
but she declined. She wished to make no new
acquaintances, she said. There was a frequent
visitor at my house—a relative of my wife’s
who poisoned her ears with suspicions that it
was not right between May Brennon and myself.
e repeated the old gossip, with additions, and
spoke of my visits to Miss Brennon, and hinted
at criminality, as that nasty-minded class always
will, who, having small virtues of their own and
depraved fancies, conjure up impure conceits re
garding their neighbors imputing lasciviousness
and wrong where the strictest purity might not
occasion to blush. I’was returning home
one spmmer evening, on foot, having spent the
day in business at a town a few miles from this,
when, by a strange chance, a short distance from
towb, I inet Miss Brennon. It was pure accident
that fought us together, and she turned back

the weather was warm, and stopped a moment
on the fustic bridge yonder, to look down into
the Stream, and eay a few pleasant words about
old times. I saw some One pass us as we stood
there, but was indifferent as to whom it might
be, and bidding my companion good-bye I went
home,as happy as a lord, in anticipation of see
ing the ones there that I loved so well. I met
with a cold reception. My bane was sitting
with my wife in counsel, and I read judgment on
the face that had too many times lately turned
unkindnesson me.
“ S° you’re come, Mr. Bjrpocrite, hare you?”

I saw by her organism that she was notnatural
ly a bad woman, and divined at once that she
had -vowed perpetual silence at the unkind words
of her husband, and that it only needed a sin
gle word to break the spell that rested upon her.
X continued my engineering, making all mao
-ner of domestic Inquiries regarding the children,
of whom she appeared very fond, but could not
elicit a word from her. I next alluded to her
husband and our old acquaintance, and in the
course of my remarks made some reflections in
way upon the slight blemish in one of
his eyes—-the only fault in his really handsome
foce. I saw a feeling like chagrin flit across
her brow, and a moment after, when I praised |
him, a pleased expression effaced the cloud.
“Aha!” said I to myself, “here are pride
and affection, At any rate; these springs have
not dried up and I think that language may yc
be unsealed/’
A day passed, but nothing transpired save
manoeuvres, I-have never tried so hard to make
myself attractive as on this occasion, and felt
that I had succeeded when on tne second mor
ning she greeted me with a smile, and extended
her hand to tne as I came from my chamber.
I chatted and tattled on about the town and its
splendors, told of now improvements, changing
fashions, crinoline and lovely bonnets, all of
which was listened to with evident interest—
Still she wouldn’t speak, confound it! I trem
bled for my spurs. Something must be done.
“ Mrs. Somers,” paid I very suddenly, “ will
yon allow me to look at the palm of your hand ?”
She extended her hand very readily, and I
gaped upon it as though I were a wizard enga
ged in some trick of necromancy, involving the
fate of the household. Looking in her face, I
relinquished her hand and sighed deeply. She
appeared surprised, and seemed as if expecting
me to say something.
“You may rireli be surprised at my conduct,”
I said,'“ but your surprise would be overwhel,

the hand sgain, robbed my forehead as though
I were much perplexed, and went out abruptly.
I saw her face depicted in the glass as I passed
out, and it bore the expression of greatwonder.
“ How far is it to the top of Battlesnake Hill,
Somers!” I asked at dinner time, as we sat at
tabic. .... ■ ■■■- ■
“ About fifteen miles ; why 7” he replied.

gather a charm from the old Battler’s care,
through which I-hope to obtain a treasure that
will compensate for all trouble and danger.”
‘ Yoa cannot go,’ said he anxiously, * the way
is onh of pieril. It is full of ravines and pitfalls,
and the serpents are very numerous.”
I saw that his wife shared 'in his uneasiness,
and her looks said “don’t go]” plainer than
words could speak. V
“So much the (better for my purpose,” said 1
“ were it not attended with danger, that which
* seek would be valueless.; I shall go; and
more than this, I shall walk.”
Somers and his wife changed looks, which I
interpreted to mean, “Well, isn’t he a queer
one ?” and after a few moments at table I left
the. honse telling Somers that I should be back
by ihe morning. ; I accordingly struck out
Btoutiy for Battlesnake Hill, accompanied by
his utter blessing and his • wife's inarticulate
bension ; but when I reached the first brook, I
made my cane into a jointed fishing rod, and in
dulged tin sundown in the finest sport The
trout never bit with more avidity; and having
caught a goodly string, I carried them to a
farm-house' not far away, and had them cooked
for my supper. Late in the evening I returned
to my friend Somer’s, and enjoyed a fiqe night's
rest Upon his haymow. At daylight I aroused
the family by knocking at the door, but I greet

Somer’s hearthstone, to makeup the silence that
had so long brooded there; but he bore it all
good humoredly. I left them, a week after
wards, the happiest couple you ever saw, and
my midnight excursion to Rattlesnake Hill was
frequently alluded to.
“Did you really go there!” Mrs. Somers

5 . Tomato Wm*.4-The following recipe for ma
king-an excellent article of tomato wine, is com
i® an agricultural paper by a gentle
inan *hq'tried it successfully last season:—
“ To a Dushel of sound, ripe tomatoes cut, add
fdPr gallons of water. Let the mixture stand
in an open tub three days, stirring two or three
times each day; then strain through a sieve—
To each gallon of the clear liquid add three
pounds of brown sugar, stir until the sugar is
thoroughly dissolved, after which it'is not to be
disturbed for three days, except to take off the
scum as it rises. Then strain the liquor through,
muslin or muslin bags, and put it in a cask filled
to the top of the bung hole. There must bo a
surplus of liquor to re-placo what fermentation
throws off, as the cask is to be kept full. As
soon as fermentation becomes feeble, (which is
usually at the end of a week from the time the
cask is filled,) dissolve half an ounce best isin
glass in a portion of the liquor, put it in the
cask and bung tightly. Half an ounce of isin
glass is sufficient for ten gallons. Place the cask
in the cellar, with the spigot in, so that the wine
can bo drawn off for bottling, without disturb
ing the,sediment. , The proper time for bottling
is the following. May. The trine is good when a
year old, but continues to improve ; for' toveral

Lorenzo Dow ia still remembered by
some of the old fogies as one of the most eeeen
trio men that ever lived. On one occasion he
took the liberty, while preaching, to denounce
a rich man in the community, recently deceased
The result was an arrest, a trial for slander
an imprisonment in the county jail. After Lo
renzo got out of “limbo” he announced that ia
spite of his (in his opinion) unjust punishment,
he should preach at a given time, a sermon bn
“another rich man. The populace was greatly
excited, and a crowded house greeted his ap
pearance. With great solemnity he opened the
Bible,' and read, “ And there was a rich man
who died and went and went to then
stopping short, and seeming to be suddenly im
pressed, he continued : “ Brethren, I shall not
mention the place this rich man Went to, fear
ing he has some relatives in this congregation
who will sue me for defamation of character. **
