So freshly green when Juno was young.nre falling;

"Thou art a bad cliih , Tjun !" bho said,

Hut .Tcies.'i's rest was not to Uo, of long

hud bent for laborersto gathcrin tlie.Iiarvest
and men and women wero forming into
bands to join in tlio work. Teresa was go

it seemed a sacrilege that the beautiful insid
cu should toil nnd slavo with tho common
multitude. Hut what could he do f And
in tlio midst of )U meditations tlio girl
raised her face, nud again their eyes met.
"Teresa?" Tlio namo burst involuntarily
from his lips.
Shoftlnrtcd and blushed, but this tlmo
did not flee a way. She looked at Lionel,
"iSi, bignore,'' 'slio answered,
"That Id a pretty flower," fault Lionel ;
"will you ijive it to me?"
SI10 made no rrplv, but put tlie blossom
Into his hand. And so tho ncfpialiilituce
was made, und the two chatted away in Iho
Lionel had gone to Tninns GVochi' lodg

"Oan.you tint find n mbstituto for your

"How much will It cost tu get n substitute,
Teresa laughed. "Olovanetta would pay
11 she could get to go in my place," said
she. There are too many ready and willing
"Let them go then," responded Lionel,
''Thcsigiiore forgets wo must have money,"
Scarcely lliiiiklng of what ho was doing,
Lionel had pouted out the contents of a
purse full of English gold upon the table.
The (piielc car of Tomas caught the noiiud ;
lie stretched out his hand as if to clutch the
ringing coin, but Teresa sprang between,
turning a Hashing face upon Lionel.
"Wo are not beggars I" she exclaimed J
"I work for my bread P
"Will you not let 1110 help you ?" aiktd
Lionel, in a low tone.
"You cannot," she replied, iu an equally
low voice ; and the flash died out of her
face, for Lionel's tone was very humble, and
his eyes had spoken something to her thnt
her heart answered. She gathered the
money together and put it into his hands.
"It must not be," said she, as sho sorrow
"' iou art a fool, child I" said Tomas
Cecchl, when Lionel win out of hearing.
"These Knglish know not what to do with
their gold, and wo should have been all the
heller fur it. '
Slowly plodded the Lugo giuv oxen uvcr
the plains nf the (J.tmp.igiia ; lu.ily -aunter-ed

ono heard the sounds of merriment ; them

Ail ibis Lionel saw, for ha had obtained a
lodging iu line iil'llielnrgcsl'uue.fiirinh'iuses,
since money vyill obtain anything, and tho
fair, delicate looking, generous Englishman
was popular among the poor Italian peas
ants, Teresa knew that lie was there, but she
avoided him ; and he, s'eelng this, only
watched her from a distance, and gave nn
token that she was more (o him than nny
other laborer on tlm'vnft plains. lie had
seen Tomas and his wife, before lm had
followed td the Cilinpagna, and they were
amply proviileil)f(iijMiirlng their daughter's
Lionel Merlon hnd fallen in love, nnd 1 0
sat down and took the matter into deliberate
consideration. His lint thought was that
Teren was a ipipen ; fit to be the ivifuof
any man, was his'second ; why not of him
self? was tlie third ; nndthiit sho should be,
if possible, was Iho fnuith. Yet how to pro
ceed was tho difficulty. He felt, witli all
tho keen sensitiveness of an Englishman to
absurd situations, thnt l.e was somewhat
absurdly placed at the present moment; for
Teresa, calmly pursuing her work, gave him
sjio opportunity of aildiessing her without
Imaging the eyesot the inullittiUe upon him
self nud the handsome maiden.
Teresa was the one lo break the silence,
She feared the pestilential breath that comes
with the chill blasts and heavy dews idler
the heat of the day might take effect on
Lionel Merlon She noted a lassitude and
fevcrishness, which he imputed M nis statu

Teresa hail hut few friends among tho la
borers in thu C'limpagna; but one woni.m,
whom Lionel recognized n belonging to tho
1'V.isc.iti, was willing enough to undertake
thoollico ol nurse in consideration of tho
luviih payment for it, nud to accompany her
homo when bho was nut of dancer.
Then Lionel turned hi ktep northward,
scekins no intcrviuw, for ho know that
Teresa was, firm in lu-r resolution, nnd that
It would ho nn insult to her piety and her
soma of filial duty to attempt to shako It.
So lib hastened away, Imping: by constant

that there is about 53,000,000 in diaftsand

Ho made a scries of experiments o'i earth

their power of retaining li fo under the infiu
cuco of various hiiOstances that might be
ust-d as worm medicines. The result proved
that worms often lived longer inthosukub-
stances known ns poisonous than In some of
tho must harmless articles of food. For In
stance, in watery solutions of opium they
lived eleven minute' In infusiims of pink
mots, thirty-thrco minutes; iu claret wine,
but iu tho juice of red rlicnies they died In
tlx minute; in black cherries In livo min

I nuppose. that tho story nbout Kufus

It noems that Mr. Choate, whilo living ori n

his carpenter nnd had n talk witli him in re
gard to tho work, nnd tho next time ho Went
ti Hoston ho got his nrcliKcct to mako a
nugh sketch, showing his ideas of how ho
desired the fenco to bo built. On tlio day
appointed for tho work to begin Mr. Choate
was summoned away. Just ns ho was nbout
to start tho carpenter appeared, and Mr.
Choate pulled tho plan out of his vest pock
et and hurriedly delivered it, nnd then drove
oil' to catch tho train, ltcturnlng after an
absence of tno weeks, on approaching his
l)oino ho was filled witli amazement, nnd led
to doubt whether ho knew whero he lived ;
his homo lot was surrounded by n zigzag
fence of most extraordinary design. When
ho saw tlio old carpenter pnundinsr lustily
away ho felt reassured as to the identity of
tho place, but was most puzzled by the
"Hello 1" lie shouted, "what arc you do
"Doiu'?" said tho old carpenter, smashing
in a ten-penny nail with ono blow, "we're
doin' some pooty tall work. We've just
slung this fenco together in n little hit ics
time than any similar slingln' was ever done
in tho Commonwealth of Massachusetts!
