"And'!.. want a husband'!;' thought
Miss Laurella'Wintoilreon. - •
Involuntarily sho glanced toward
the little mirror which hung between
the windows opposite, as if mutely
questioning herself as to the remains
of her girlhood's beauty. Alas ! the
convex, too truthful, returned no en
couraging verdict. For Miss Laorolla
Wintergreen was not so young as she
had been, some four or five summers
Forty years old, and lean and spare,
with hair grown thin on the parting,
and little crow:s feet forming a lattice
work' 'around her faded blue eyes. A
plump old maid, with cheeks like a fall
apple, and laughing, hazel eyes, is not
such -a disagreeable object to look
upon; but a lean, shadowy, so to speak,
"demented" old maid! Miss Luureila
shuddered slightly as she turned away
from the uncompromising reflectionin
the mirror
"Yes," added Miss Laure!la Winter
green to herself, "I DO need a husband.
I wonder how that particular para.
graph in the paper happened to meet
my eye just then. I don't believe in
being bold or unfeminine ; but what is
a poor girl to do when, fate has made
no provision for the future ? I'm sure
I should make a good wife.: I can
cook; I'm handy with my needle; and
I have a positive talent for housekeep
Miss Laufella's sentence ended in a
dejected sigh. Surely there was some•
thing essentially wrong in the planet
ary combinations which had glittered
over*the inautipicious-hour of her birth.
"Wanted—A. Wife !"
Miss 'Atliolla Wintergreen, looked
around tho scantily furnished little
room, and eyed the one tea-cup on the
tray, and the solitary pair of well-worn
slippers that turned out their , toes ,on
the hearth-rug, with a distasteful
glance. And then she drew out her
memorandum book, jotted down the
address, upon which her eyes had
boon longingly litigating, and put it in
to her pocket.
"At all events there can be no harm
in trying," thought Miss Laurella.—
"There are periods in a Woman's life
in which she must boldly take the holm
of fate into her own hands."
Her toilette, this morning, was pro-
longed and fastidious; the wintry little
curls were studiously and carefully
brushed repeatedly round the stick,
and the blue-ribbon bow was adjusted
jauntily at her throat; while the pow
der puff, dabbed again and again over
her brow and checks, vainly strove to
stimulate the lily-bloom of youth. A
black silk dress, and a round bat of
black plush, with a knot of -red and
brown autumn leaves upon it, comple
ted her preparations for the hand-to
hand conflict with Destiny, in which
she was about to engage. For Miss
Laurella Wintergreen had had enough
of half measures. It was high time,
she told herself, to be up and doing.
Nevertheless her heart throbbed
with strangulating rapidity when she
stood at the door of No. Birch st.,
the address written down in her mem
orandum book.
"It's such py yery embarrassing thing
to do," she thought. "But then, it the
gentleman has advertised, he can't be
surprised if his appeal is answered."

And Miss Wintergreen, •passidg
through an elegantly carpeted hall,
found herself in a good-sized room tie.
yond, whore four or five other' Women
were seated. .
-And such a motley crew I, Laurella,
glancing up through her veil, took :a
sort of mental stook of them at one
look. A. starched female in the cor
ner, in rusty bombazine and a widow's
cap, with the corners of her mouth
drawn down in a half circle, sat con
templating her folded bands; a plump
Irish woman' in; a gay delaino dross
and very dirty gloves, was 'warming
her substantial feet at the fender; two
young women, who looked us if they
might bo "out on leave" frorit re facto
ry, giggled at the window; and d hard
faced woman in black sat on the milli,
with two red-beaded littlo boys on ei•
titer side of her. •
And these, thought-Miss. Laurella,
with a contemptuous elevation of her
nose, arc my rivals. •
"Take a cheer, Miss,".said the man.
"My master'll see you d'rectly." •
"There is no hurry, my good man,"
said Miss IVintergreen, majestically,
Almost in the same breath the door
beybrid opened, and U. fat old lady In a
false front and spectacles waddledbut,
breathing very hard, and •wearing a
flushed, indignitrit expresaion. '
7 - "Ile thinks I'm too old !" onoth this
matron, looking round upoh 'the as
sembled group. "I'd just like to know
how old he is hisself, that I would! I
never see nothin' like the airs some
people puts on I"
And she wont puffing out, like the
Great Eastern, in a state of discom

''''N'ow, then, mum,',' said he young
'Mao, beckoning to the lady of the born
haiine and widow's cap, ,you'll
please to walk ,
' The n'ext minute the starch'ed fe
male had disappeared behind the pan
'els of the door; which - she opened and
closed as cautiously as if it Were .the
valve of some powerful steam engine.
Miss Laurena pondered on the delibe
rate system which seemed to chartui.

• "It is very queer," she thought, "and
yet Ihero's something grand about it,
~,,Veanwhile the factory gills giggled
on, tUe Irishwoman warmed her feet,
and the mother of the red-headed ur
chins administered twoakod oars and
peppermint drops with laudable-im
There was a general stir among them
ashen the widow earn° mincing out
fi-dm her audience in the presence
"Well, an' what luck did yez have ?"
inquired the Celtic 'female, speaking
boldly the question the others longed
to'ask, but dared, net.
6 •This world is' not governed by
luck," sourly answered the widow,
compressing her lips; "and I am thank•
ful that my lot is- not to be cast in
with one whb objects' to daily el ervicos
and a Cold dinntA• 'on Sunday. Ah,
me ! I don't know what our wicked n'a'-
tion is coming to. My umbrella,
please, young man."
So departed the , widow in the odor
of sanctity, and the mother of the red
headed boys was next ushered into the
presence of the mysterious advertiser.
She, had , however, been absent but
a moment before she came bolting out,
her flounces rustling stiffly, and her
eyes blazing with wrath.
"A man who objects to two dear lit
tle boys as is like lambs about the
house, an't no better than Herod !"
she exclaimed. "Come, Adolphus and
Algernon—come, my poor little angels,
we'll go where we can be made wel
"An 't we goin g to Biro hero, mar 2"
demanded the elder one, whiningly.
"No; my poppot;.wo wouldn't de
mean ourselves to them as an't worthy
of our notice.' Como, darlings !" And
away wont the boys at a dog-trot, with
their mother bristling after, and scold- .
ing . all the way to the street door. -
Miss Laurella's heart began to boat
with renewed apprehensions.
"He's very hard to suit," sholbought
"I wonder it I shall please him T"
"May be, Miss, you'd better go in
next," said the young man Idoking re:
their dubiously at the two factory girls
and the red-faced daughter of Erin.
Miss Wintorgr'een rose up, giving
her dress a shako, and instinctively,
feeling to see if the scanty curls hung
right, and followed her guide into a
handsome apartment, where a Liver
pool coal fire burned on the marble
hearth, and an array of books, pro
claimed a literary taste on the part of
its occupant. Glancing timidly up,
she saw a fine looking gentleman of
about forty standing by the mantle
"Sit down, ma'am," ho said, motion
ing her to aschair ; and then, turning
to Ws . servant, he asked in a whisper;
"Row many more of them are there,
Patrick 2"
"Only three of them, sir, barrio? this
one. ,,
"Throe more!" he ejaculated, as if
unconsciously. "I shall go crazy !

"1 Could yer honor that was the beet
way, all along," slid Patrick, giving
the lire an energetic puke, as Le with

A Story of Fifty-two Prayer Meetings
"To bo •sure,'' said I to myself, one
year ago the last week in December,
"to be sure, this is the evening of our
Church prayer meeting, bates I bave
not been there much this year, it is
scarcely worth while to begin now.—
I'll just wait until, next week, and then
begin the , year right,,and go all the
time. . .
Well, it' so happened that the first
evening of the year fell upon the oven.
ing of the regular prayer-meeting „ and
there was none. Of course, although r
I wanted to go, I couldn't. The next
week my neighbor
. .and, particular
friend, Mrs. Lamb, gave a party. Now
Itlre. Lamb is a . member of our church,
and most undeniably did wrong; but
then she is a very dearfriend of mine,
and I cep go to prayer-Meeting every
week of '',lheyear, but it is not every
week I can accept au invitation from
Mrs. Lamb : therefore ) sorry as I was,
I felt that I must go tothe party, The
next week .Miss Kellogg was here.=
Now, I work pretty hard, and am fond
of music, and I need some entertain
ment, and I really felt it my duty to
go there, for Miss Kellogg does not
sing every week. You see, I was at,
least excusable. The next Week it
snowed; the next it rained; the next
it was torribly.cold, and the next it
Was Warm and thawing, and so wet,
under foot. The next week Gough
lectured, and As I can go
,to prayer
meeting every week, I thought I might
just for once go to hear Mr. Gough.—
The next week I had a headache; the
next a
.dress-maker; and the next,
Which was the, twelfth, a very,-lird,
cold., So you see I could not go any
the first quarter. The following week
it was very dark, and I had, no com
pany. The fourteenth I was going, -
but just RBI was about to start I. beard
that our "beloved pastor" was away,
and that Deaccin Quickset would lead
the meeting.. Now I don't like Bea.
con Quicksot. He, was 'so unkind as
to say, upon one occasion, that be be
lieved that if I would make an effort
I might get out to prayer-meeting; as
it' I were not constantly making an ef
fort; and he ought to know that
,I al
ways go when it is at all consistent.—
He had better rereember,,tbat
ty covereth a multitude of sins." I am
sometimes obliged to be absent from
prayer meeting, but I do not talk
about my neighbors. As Deacon Q.
was going to lead the meeting, I don't
feel it my duty to go, .The next week,
I will confess, I forgot it until it was
too late. The next week I started,
but was so vexed to find that my
time was too slow, and I was 'again
late. The sixteenth I did not feel at
all well, and the next I went to visit a
sick friend. You know it is as much.
our duty to visit the sick as it is to at
tend meetings. The next week, un
fortunately, there was a wedding in
one of the other churches, to which I
received an admission card, and I
could go to prayer.meeting every
week, and particularly as the bride's
dress was to be very elegant,—the
trail at least four yards long,—l just
thought I would go to the wedding.—
The next week I was very tired; it
was our house-cleaning, and Bridget
took it into hea l head to take this time
of all others to get the ague; and then
the week after that it was to warm to
wear my 4064 , Rnd my new hat was
not triinrned. For thp next two
months I was out . cd town, and I nev

I am a stranger, and so I did not

years of age, who fortunately • discov

first-class article of elate pencils.;•
began by whittling out the pencils and
selling them to school children. Being
a better article, than for sale in the
stores, he found a, ready sale for all

fortune in the business; and his dream
has been realized. This quarry of
slate pencil stone was situated in a
large ravine, lour miles north of Cas
tleton,'Vt., near Bemoseen Lake. The
land on which it is . situated was for
sale at $lOO. Ife purChased it and be
gan operations by sawing out the pen-
cils and whittling them round. The
business of making. them grow im

impossible to keep a clean order book..
Machinery was invented to facilitate.
the process, which reached something
like perfection, and, : enormously in
creased the production of pencils. At
present the quarry and mills aro
owned by a joint stock company.
They are valued at. $300,000. From
fifty to one hundred thousand pencils
are turned out daily, and upwards of
a hundred hands are employed in the
quarry and in the mill. •
