for the merriment and cmoymeiit,
and, for the matter of tiiat, the grief

sudden, like thoke o! children—rnv
grandchildren, and nenliews. and niec

and they choke, and nudge each oilier,
and say. "Ah ! that is a good story,

tho French, and 1 and si :ic < f mv
companions were encamp. 1 in white
tents on the coast of Kent.
Yes, people think mo very merry.
And so, bless Heaven! 1 am; fori try
to stand upright, lour square to the
world, as a man should; tut, bt ing an
old man, I have blank places in my
heart now, where no love grows; bar
ren spots iii my memory, and chill and
numbed parts in my feelings whereto I
cannot look back, and whereon i dare
not tread and touch, lest sudden pain
should conn: back, like to the shooting
of an old. old wound.
Been in love? Yes, I should think
I have; how oh-c could 1 have grand
children, those p.-<ip!e who laugh so
hearty when I laugh, and make me
tell how old ' am a scare of times, n:i 1
say how wcii i am looking.
Been in love? I think I was talk
ing of that, was In>t ? Yes, been in
love! Well we"just did love when I
was a young fellow. and 1 recollect my
Alice, and J ree<- Meet her as 1 loved
her when alio was wry young, and as
I love her now. 1 think that she
could do any thing but drink and smoke,
or tell an untruth, or do a wrong ac
tion. Her laco was a sweet oval face ;
her hair a very dark brown, nearly
black; and her eyes a deep blue, full
of merriment at one moment, ay, at all
moments, except when she heard a
sad etory or was touched with pain for
anyone else, and then they grew deep
er and deeper as they filled with tears.
Not for herself. She never cried for
herself that 1 know ot, for she never
had a day's illness. But she was ter
ribly cut up when her poor brother
died, and that you see was how 1 knew
her. Her brother was in tnv compa
ny. Matty's the time that he stood
shoulder to me. good at drill, good at
song—good at anything. lit used to
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13, 1365,
live near the coast; and, indeed, he
joined us, and 1 was one of his tent
fellows, and his chum.
Well, he knew people that 1 knew,
and we were soon friends ; and he took
me home to show me Alice. He was
always talking about her, and she
about him; and, when he was there,
scarce a look did she give me. Her
brother—his name Joe, and mine too
—could do everything, and was tho
be-all and end all ot' the world. I used
to think; and r-o one day 1 tried to
run with Joe, and Joe beat me, and
Alice laughed : and then I shot against
Joe, and he beat mc too. and she laugh
ed the more ; and 1 wrestled with him
and threw him, and she didn't laugh
then, but ran to see whether lie was
hurt, and said it wasn't fair lbr Joe to
tackle a big fellow like me, although
lie was an inch taller. In short,
1 could not please her anyhow.
Well, it was one day that we heard
that the llat bottomed boats of old Bo
nay were not coming over, and that
j the army of Boulongc had melted bit
by bit away like a snow-drift, that we
made a night of. Ay, it was a night,
too! and being hot and in the summer,
we must needs keep up the *.n till the
sun came up over the seacoast, look
: ing red and angry at our folly. Well.
Joe and I—the two Joes as they culled
us—ran down on the beach and waAn
! cd our hot faces, and plunged in the
j fresh, salt waves, and were in a few
' moments as fresh and merry a- larks
And after dressing, Joe must needs
taiie a walk with me—who was noth
ing loth, you must know—along the
• edge of the cliff. The for centu
: ries have been washing that ehaik
; bound coast, and at intervals there
J stand uj) pillars of'.chalk,.with seas
i around them. )he people call such a
place, **No Alan's Land," and no man
can own it truly. Well, Joe came t
, one of these within a few Jeet —-;-v
twelve—from the cliff, and turning to
me, said •'.roe Junior," s-.id ie—l
think 1 see his bright face now— '* 1
challenge vou to jump on thai ; * No
Man's Land," J do."
•• Joe," said J. hurriedly. *•' don't be a

•• But 1 am, sal i he. And '• ! re I
could stop him, if indeed I bad tried, !
he took run an i jumped.
It was a.i sudden that 1 eoui i ouiv
: stand aghast when J saw him there.—
1 He stoo l, indeed, but for a moment,
and then he Look a b.tcic step, and
would have jumped back, when I heard '
a rumbling sound, and half the top of
i •'No Man's Land" part,and the chalk
and earth, and Joe. too. fell down with
a crash on the rocky coast below.
I ran around the little creek to the
; other side of the small bay. and throw
ing mysclt down on the turf, stretched
■ my neck over, looked over and cried,
Joe ! Aro you hurt. Joe !"
A faint voice came up, and 1 could
see the poor fellow struggling under a
f huge piece of chalk which seemed to
hold ruin down in agony. lie smiled
in a ghastiv way with his whitened
lhce, and said, "Hun, Joe, run! the
tide's coming in !"
Well, I did run, and we got ropes !
from the tents, and a few strong lei
lows held these as I swung over the
cliff, just reaching poor Joe us the cold
water was lap, lap, lapping up to his
mouth, taking away his breath and
then running hack, crawling over him
and leaving bubbles of salt foam, as if
in sport. 1 got him out, but lie could
not stand. Some bones were broken
and lie was badly bruised, so that I
was forced to tie him to the rope and
they hauled him up, and afterward
pulled me up. and we took him home.
Well, well ! tit make a long story
short, poor Joe died, with my praises
on his lijis, and Alice bowed her head
like a broken lily.-, it was a long time
before site got over it, and summer
had grown into winter, and winter to i
summer, to autumn, and to winter
again. .1 lie threat mod invasion was
ail over; our swords were getting
rusty, our uniforms dirty, and when
the holidays came I left tho firm in
which ! had just became a partner,
and went to spend a fortnight at rnv
friend's in Kent.
Alice was there, well and cheerful
now, and reconciled to her loss, though
we often talked of poor Joe, and as the
days wore on we grew close together,
and she called me by my name and
seemed to have transferred her broth
er's love to me. She never told me so
nor let others see it till one merry
Christmas night, when she rejected a*!!
her cousins and her other friends, an i
would only dance with mo.
We had the mistletoe, too At last,
one madcap fellow proposed that the
latlies should kisi the gentlemen all
around when a; i how they could ; and
Alice should play, too; and she, in a
solemn, quiet way, smiling eadly and
yet sweetly too, took me beneath the
I hristtnas hough and kissed me on the
At-, tt s, many years ago, but I feel it ■
now., My heart beat so last that I |
hardly dared return it: but I put my j
arm round her and took her gently to i
t he l-uy window of the old hail, saying, :
as I pressed her hand. "Alice, dear I
Alice did you iiiem that kiss? - '
V ed, 1 need not tell you what she i
answered. Ti< fifty years ago, tiftv j
years ago. and 1 am surrounded by ;
Alice - dear grandchildren; and there '
is • ne, a little thing with light and :
golden hair that wiil deepen into brown, i
who plays around my knees and tells
me :.er iittie stories, her sorrows, and I
her joys; so quick, so hurried in their '
0 -uiing and their going that they are
like my own. and as we talk, we grow :
quite friends and companions, as mv
Alice was to me.
Bless you, she understands it uli!
She is a woman in pretty ways: her
pout ings, pettings,and quarelings. She
manages her household of one wax
doll and two wooden ones, and tells
"ie for the wax doll is the lady- and
-ne two woodou ones arc the servants
io no-heaps and stuff gowns, when
' oey gossip with a wooden policeman,
who belongs to her brother, Ft lie Joe. '
So we a *e fast friends, little Alice, •
• nd T; an J to night, on Christmas night,
1 noticed that she would not dance m r
play with Che pink and shiny-faced iit
tie boys who were unnaturally tidy ;
ami dean in their new knickerbockers,
with red stockings but she came and
sat by in.- and talkcdsoflly in the fire
light as Alice did, and ma le me think
oi fifty years ago. An ! only think
bow i >id times came back and new j
times like t'leold; only-just think that
wi.cn her mother toid her she should i
choose a swectheai t, she got a iittie bit i
o! rni>t!ot'"-, and climbing slily on my
knee, and holding me in talk as if to •
ie Iter purpose—though I guessed it I
soon, I a teli you,—site put her iiitie
doll-like arm around my neck, and
hoi ling tUQ mistletoe above my head, ;
-no kissed me again and again, and |
.in, and said T was her sweet heart. !
-So this chiid sweet heart brought j
-he old times buck—the old times that
■tre stiii so distant and so near—and ;
iiie sweet kiss neath the rustling
• caves, made me think ot my dead Al- ■
ice in the grave.

in the selection of small fruits spo i
daily adapted to planting in a new i
country, we should set high value on ;
the currant. Nor is it much less desi
rable on an old homestead thai is well
furnished with fruit; but where tho in
satiable currant s orrn has established •
itsclt this crop is a costly and difficult
one to grow. For family use the cur
rant is tiardiy surpassed bv any one
of the bush or vine summer fruits
Scarcely is the berry formed from the !
ilowc-r. ere it is p ; ackcd and used for j
Juoo. \\ he:; fuiiy ripe, its t.isto is \
agreeably acid during the hot weather,
and it has the peculiar and valuable
quality, in so small a fruit, of keeping
perfectly for weeks ou the bushes, af j
tcr its color and size announce its ma
turity. Its value in cookery is well
known, and its fermented juice forms
a oevcrago which is superior to any
other manufactured from fruit, cxc-.pt
that made from the apple and grape.
The currant is very easily propaga
ted front cuttings taken from the la :
test growth. Th y should be long '
enough to reach to the moist soil, and :
they ought to lie planted early in the
spring—before the buds start. There
are two methods of training—one to ■
allow the hush to take its natural hab
it, ns-isling it by proper thinning and '
piuniiig, and the other to force it Um
grow in the tree form. For genera!
cultivation the first method is prefera
ble, it is more natural, and we think ;
the plant will be - longer lived and
healthier. At proper intervals tho old ;
wood can be cut away and the growth ;
renewed by suckers springing from
buds below the ground.-The tree form
is very handsome, convenient for til
lage, and for a few years produces ve
ry fine fruit. When this form i$ desi
rable it is only- necessary to remove ,
all the buds on the cutting below j
where you wish the branches to form. ;
They should lie cut out with a knife, j
It any suckers spring up from the
ground, or branches start too low
down, they- may be easily removed, '
and when the plant becomes well es- ,
tablished in its growth, no further,
trouble will arise from this eoui'ce.
Four or five feet apart in the row is a
convenient distance to plant. — Rural

A Wonderful Tree. —In tho birch
wood of Culloden, Scotland, there is
a remarkable tree, well worthy of
note. About thirty years ago, a young
giant of the forest was blown down,
and fell aorots a deep gully or ravine
which it completely spanned, and the
top branches took root on the other
-ide. From the parent stem no less
; Hian fifteen trees grew up perpendieu
j larly. all in a row ; and there they still
j flouri.-h. in all their splendor, while
j tiie parent stem evinces no token of
; decay. Several of the trees are not
; le-'S titan thirty feet high. The tree is
j a birch fir.
Some chap who has evidently had
considerable experience in the matter,
discoi rses as follows on the subject of
'• People will kiss, yet not one in a
hundred knows how to extract bliss
from lovely Jips, no more than they
know how to make diamonds from
charcoal. And yet it is easy, at least
for us ! First know whom you are lo .
uiss. Don t make a mistake,although
a mistake may be good. Don't jump
ttii like a trout for a fly, and smack a ■
woman or. the neck, on the ear. or on i
j t he corner of h-w forehead, on the end
of her nose, or knock oil'her waterfall. :
Tiie gentleman should be a little tho
tallest. He should have a clean face,
a kind eye, a mouth full of expression.
Don't kiss everybody. Don't sit down
to it; .-land up. Need not be anxious !
about getting in a crowd. Two per-j
sons are plenty to corner and catch a
kiss , more persons spoil the sport j
lake the left hand of the lady in your
i >ght: let your hat go to —any place !
ml ot tiie way, throw the left hand
gently over the shoulder of the lady, i
and let the hand fall down upon the '
right side toward tiie belt. Don't be i
in a hurry; draw her gently, lovingly j
to your heart; her head will fall fight- i
; ly upon your shoulder—and a hand
some shoulder strap it makes! Don't
I be in a hurry ; send a little life down
your ielt arm. Her left hand is in

and respect. Hcn't fie in a hurry! j
Her head fies carelessly on year shoui
