lie was something of a bear to answer
so crustily, when Barbara Smith stood in
the doorway, with the shadowy lashes
drooping over her soft brown eyes, and the
roses inciting into deep carmine on her
rosy cheeks, until her muslin dress was
pale in comparison. Such a pretty, big
eyed, loving little Barbara as she was, in
all the blooming freshnen of her eighteen
summers, and the soft sigh that fluttered
up from her lips as the one-horse carriage
drove away, and was checked instantly.
Barbara had no idea of becoming a victim
to unrequited love, though she had rather
fancied Mr. Verley during his brief sojourn
at her father's house.
E INS. CO.
Mr. Verley drove away through the
rustling green draperies of the summer
lanes, whistling softly as he drove.
" I shall be in very good time for the
12-30 train,'' he meditated to himself.
" Punctuality is the soul of business,
I never was one of the behind-hand tribe,
thank Providence. Besides, I think
becoming rather dangerous to remain at
that place any longer. I'm thirty-nine
to-morrow, and that's just twenty years too
old for me to go making a fool of myself.
Fancy me getting married! No you
don't, Joseph Verley, my friend."
As he settled himself comfortably in the
crowded railroad-car, and opened a letter,
the subject again recurred to his mind
with curious persistence.
" The letter of my poor brother's execu
tor came just in time, or I should certainly
have lounged away more time than would
have been either sensible or profitable.
Poor, dear Harold; I don't see what on
earth possessed him to fall sick and die on
his way home from Venice, and leave his
daughter on my hands, too. Why couldn't
he have left a son instead of a daughter! I
never did understand a woman's ways,
and, what's more, I don't want to. I sin
to meet her at Speedville, and take her
home with me, oh!" groaned Mr. N'erley,
referring despariuglv.to his letter. " And
what am I going to do with her when I
get her there, I'd like to know! I suppose
she:s a great tall creature, with ringlets
and ribbons, and just as likely as not, an
Italian lover chatting sentiment to her-41
creature that reads Byron, and keeps an
album, and eats slate-pencils and chalk.
Pll send her to a boarding-school—that's
what do with my niece--and perhaps,
when she has graduated there, the school
master can suggest some means of getting
rid of her. Of course she'll have half a
dozen huge trunks, and a bonnet-box and
a parrot-cage—that's the way women gen
.erally travel, I believe. I am glad lam
out of the way of Barbara's fascinations
now. One woman is quite enough toketp

cies—two of them would drive me to

in a sort of calm desperation at the pros

"I suppose she'll want a piano, and may
be a poodle dog—and there's no knowing
what else. I don't see why Harold want
ed to die and leave his daughter to my
(=Oust now. Speedville station—twenty
seVen miles liirther on. I wish it was
twenty-seven hundred —that's what I
wish." • .
And with this vindictive sentiment in
his mind, our hero tieda red silk handker
hief over his head, and tried to lose him
.. fin a series of brief troubled dreams,
wherein the vision of a tall, nice young
lady figured conspicuously.
Are we here already?" he stammered,
starting to his feet, as the conductor bawl
ed out " Speedville station!" and seized
umbrella, valise and traveling shawl, with
the bustling bewilderment peculiar to peo
ple suddenly aroused from sleep.
Speedville was rather a large sized vil
lage, situated at the junction of several
railways—a bustling, thriving little place,
with an imposing American Gothic struc
ture as a depot. Into this building , Mr.
Verley walked, looking right and left for
the young lady whose guardianship he
was to assume.
"Of course," he reasoned mentally,
"she'll be on the lookout for me; women
are proverbially curious."
But Harold Verley's daughter was not
on the "lookout" for her unknown uncle.
When the crowd incident to the evening
train had subsided, and people had gone
their several ways, the only remaining
occupants of the depot were Mr. Verley,
lame old man who sold peanuts and oran
ges, and a decent looking colored woman,
with a brilliant Madras turban on her
head, who took care of the building.
Neither of these could be his niece, so
Mr. Verley, after a little perplexed hesita
tion, addressed himself to the colored
woman,. who was busily polishing the
window with a piece of crumpled news
Ahem—l wail to meet my niece here
to-day, and—l don't see her."
"I our niece, sir?" what is her name?"
" Oh, yes, sir; she has been here these
two hours, bless her dear heart; she's
" Asleep!" gasped Mr. Verley; but the
stewardess only answered him by bustling
into the inner apartment and bringing out
what appeared to be a compact bundle,
with a pink face at one end of it, and a
mass of tong, trailing embroideries at the
Jo r sep.l. Verley recoiled i t is - mr as the
angle of the wall would permit him to.
"Why—it's a baby!"
"To be sure it is, sir," said the woman,
"and as fine a little girl as I ever saw;
bless her sweet blue eyes."
"But isn't there a nurse or some such
person here who could take charge of
"There was a nurse brought heron, sir;
a queer, foreign looking thing, with a yel
low skin and hair as black as night, and
big gold hoops in her ears; but she talked
something about the next steamer I
couldn't understand her lingo, sir—and
went right back to New York on the two
Joseph Verley stood aghast, staring at
the rosy baby, as it lay crowing in the
woman's arms, and wondering which of
his lucky stars he should call on to aid him
in this unlooked for emergency. A full
grown young lady niece would have been
bad enough—but a baby!
"So this is my neice," he muttered.
" And what the d—l am I going to do with
lie turned suddenly to the colored
"What time does the next train for
" Iu an hour, sir."
"Would you be kind enough to take
care of the child until then? I suppose I
must take it home with me; for I can't
very well drown it, or throw it under the
"Sir!" ejaculated the astonished stew
But Mr. Verley turned on his heel and
strode out of the depot, scarcely able at
first to comprehend the fullness of the dis
aster that had befallen him.
The train was at the depot when he re
turned; and the woman awaited him with
the sleeping infant in her arms.
"Asleep, chi" commented Mr. Verley,
" Well that's lucky."
"Where's the nurse, sir," inquired the
"Nurse! What nurse?"
"Why, I supposed you went to get a
"Never once thought of it!" ejaculated
Joseph, madly smiting his forehead.
" Here—give the thing to me quick, the
train is moving."
He had hardly time to spring on board
as the locomotivegave an unearthly shriek,
while the baby followed suit in both re
Ho staggered to a seat, holding the um
brella and child in one hand; while in the
other his valise swung backward and for
" There! there! bless its little heart!" he
coaxed, imitating as nearly as possible the
colored woman's formula. We won't
cry—no we won't."
But the baby evidently had an opinion
of its own on the subject, and would cry
in spite of the various blandishments
practised by the bewildered uncle—such
as shaking the umbrella handle, swinging
his watch, and trotting both knees. Peo
ple began to look around reproachfully;
young men shrugged their shoulders, and
young ladies smiled.
"Hush! hush! there's a darling!" whis
pered Mr. Verley. "What does it want
to settle down into such a heap for? a
body cannot tell its spine from its leg.
There! there! it shall look out of the Will
dow. If I could only remember a nursery
rhyme or so. Bless my heart! what lungs
it has! You little beast, will you keep
But still the baby w e pt, an d wa il e d, an d
gnashed its gums, for of teeth it had but
two. Mr. Verley began to look round in
the car in searelkof some matronly (lame,
of whom he could seek counsel, nut in vain.
There were only three ladies in the car,
and they were young, with round bats and
"They wont'tknow anything about it,"
groaned Mr. Verley, in anguish of spirit.
'• Oh, why didn't, I have common sense
enough to go and get a nurse. I suppose
there is no danger of a baby bursting its
lungs; but I should think, if there was
such a contingency, this baby was in a
fair way of meeting it. Well, roar away
my young, friend; I can stand it as long as
Vain beast, and futile as vain, as Mr.
Verley very soon discovered. The baby
not only cried, but it screamed, it kicked, it
doubled itself over in more ways than a
contortionist's wildest &emus could imaw
ine, and became apparently frantic with
passion. The perspiration broke out in
huge heeds on Joseph's brow; his face
flushed, and still the cars thundered on.
"What's to become of me?" he ponder
ed, holding desperately on to the strug
gling infant by the sash that encircled its
little waist, and watching its purple face
with a species of detestation. "I don't
wonder that Harold died! I shall die in a
week, if this thing goes on. And it seems
so easy for Barbara Smith to take care of
her little brothers and sisters. If Barbara
was only here!"
And Mr. Verley jerked the baby up into
a sitting posture with a sudden jerk.
"I'll do it," quoth Mr. Verley. "I'll
take the hack express at four in the morn
ing and go straight there. Ali, you may
stop crying, you little hypocrite, but it
won't do any good; I'm not to be caught
twice in the same trap."
Barbara Smith was watering her tube
roses, in the bright morning sunshine, as
Mr. Verley drove up to the gate, with the
valise and baby in the carriage.
"Dear me, Mr. Verley!" she ejaculated,
blushing 'celestial rosy red.' "Why, what
a sweet little babv:•
Yes; very sweet," he responded, drily.
`•lt is my niece that I was to meet at
'Why. I thought she was a young
dia 1; hut it seems she's not. Bar
bara, what do you suppose brought me
back," he added, speaking very fast for
fear the baby would cry.
"I don't know," faltered Barbara, crim
soning still more. "Perhaps you forgot
"What was it," said Barbara, a little
"I forgot to ask you if you would marry
"Dear me! was that all?" said the young
"Isn't tint enough?" any, Barbara,
"I'll think of it," answered Barbara,
"No; but tell Inc now. Quick! the
baby's waking up."
Barbara had taken the little thing in
her arms, and disappeared before it had
time to utter its waking wail.
A week afterwards Mr. Joseph Verley
took the 12-30 return, with his wife and
niece, the happiest of reclaimed old bache
lors, and it was all the unconscious baby's

THE yieldper acre and average price
per bushel of crops raised in this State
last year are contained in a table prepar
ed by the Agricultural Department at
Washington. From this it appears that
the yield per acre was as follows:—Wheat,
12 bushels; rye, 13 bushels; barley, 21
bushels; oats, 27 bushels; corn, 35 bushels;
buckwheat, 16 bushels; white potatoes, 88
bushels; sweet potatoes, 90 bushels, and
hay,' 1A- tons. The average price per
bushel on Ist January, 1869, was Wheat,
$1.89; rye, $1.32; barley, $1.64; oats, 04
cents: corn $1.00; buckwheat, $1.09;
white potatoes, 93 cents; sweet potatoes,
$l.OO, and hay, $l6 per ton. The several
crops of Pennsylvania therefore yield the
following money value per acre: Wheat,
$25.34; rye, $17.43; barley, $35.419; oats,
$17.79: corn, $35; buckwheat, $17.99;
white potatoes, $81.84; sweet potatoes,
$149.40, and hay, $21.60.
