When I was young and tender too,
I had to mind and had to do
Whatever mother bade me;
She used to have a walnut stick
Which kept me on the double-quick
When older grown, and quite a beau
Among the girls, I used to know
A Miss Priscilla Cadmy;
And with the help of smiles and nods
I fell in love at fogy roils,
And there is where she had me.
When I was older, say sixteen,
I thought it time to have a queen,
And asked her If she'd wed me;
She said she didn't much object,
Or words to something tEat effect,
And there was where she had me
But when to make the matter straight,
I went up to negotiate
Aflairs with Colonel Cadmy,
He said he "didn't care to sell."
He told me I might go to—well,
And that was where he had me.
I 44ppymid my aorrov lathe cup
Unfli I got my dander up

When she proposed that we be ono
In spite of pa—the thing was done,
Aud that was av t here I had her.

I'm proud to say belong to me
(That is, to me and madam) ;
For when we left our native sod,
We spent a year or two abroad—
And that was where we had 'em
"I do wish, ,, said Mrs. Prudence Hall,
holding her darning-needle in mid-air for
a moment over the coarse blue sock she
was mending—" I do wish you could see
your way clear to marrying Sctli Hallett.
He wants you the worst kind, and he'd be
such a good provider."
" But I don't like him well enough,
Prudy, and I want something besides

Mrs. Prudence Pall had sprained her
ankle, and was forced, solely against her
will, to sit, day after day, in an upper
chamber, with a terrible consciousness that
everything about the farm was relapsing
into "chaos and old night" for want of
Her pretty sister Dora had come to stay
with her, but she was "only a child, you
"There are two kinds of love in this
world," said Mrs. Hall, after a pause, in
which she had been taking council with
herself whether Dora was old enough to
be talked to on sucli'matters at all and it
flashed upon her that "the child" was
nearly twenty years old. "Perhaps you
like Seth well enough to marry him, only
you don't know it."
"Tell me about the 'two kinds,' " said
Dora, innocently; " I thought love was
love the world over."
" I have never known but one kind, I
think, Dora. When I married David he
was the most well-to-do young man in
these parts, and we never had a quarrel
while he lived. 'He was a good, practical
sort of a man, and never asked me t. do
"What if hit had?" asked Dora.
" Well, I guess I should have argued
him out of it. But there is a kind of love
that will draw women through fire and
water. It makes them throw themselves
away on poor, shiftless men who will
never provide for them nor their children,
and they know it as well as anybody else
does. It is the greatest wonder to me
why such a feeling-should ever have been
created." And Mrs. Prudence gave her
self up to one rare moment of abstraction.
Dora had bent low over her work to hide
her roguish smiles at her sister's discourse;
but she fixed her deep grey eyes on Pru
dence at this point, not smiling, but sim
Such love Lrings happiness sometimes,
I suppose," said Dora.
" Next to never," said Prudence, re
covering her wonted decision with a jerk.
We ain't born to be happy, and anything
that's too good always leaves a bad taste
in the mouth. Comfort is a bird in the
hand, and you don't gain anything by
letting it fly on the chance of happiness."
" Did you ever know any one alma here,
Prudence, who threw herself away for
love? It seems to me they won't look at
a man unless he has a house and farm
ready for them."
"That's where they're right," said
Prudence. "You are rather given to high
tlyin' notions, and it's time you found ou
that bread don't grow ready buttered.
Yes, I do know one girl about my age,
who was pretty and smart, and had no
end of chances of getting married (I think
my David courted her some, but he never
would own to it,) and she would have
that shiftless' creature, Jre 'Raymond,
who never would make one hand wash the
other. Even when she was a dying she
pretended that she had been happy, and
wouldn't have done any other way if she
had to do it over again."
"Was she our Joe's mother?" said
" Yes ' to be sure; and . when she died
we took him to bring up, and work upon
the farm. He's more than paid his way,
but he's a rolling stone like his father,
and won't never come to anything. I for
got to tell you—he's going to-morrow."
"Going to-morrow!" said Dora, with a
great start; " I thought his time wasn't
out for another month?"
" Well, It, ain't out rigidly till the day
be's twenty-one, but he was is such a

Then silence fell upon them. These
two women had the same father and
mother, though a score of years lay be
tween them. Prudence had been born in
the early married life of her parents, when
they wge struggling with a hard New
England farm, and there was work for
even baby hands.
The lines of duty and patience were
deep graved in her rugged face, which yet
beamed with a kindly•common-sense.
Dora had come late to her mother in life,
us an old tree sometimes blossoms into
loveliness after every one has forgotten it.
Her little feet had walked in easy paths,
and Prudence yearned over her like a
She sat now by the open fire, betiding
her graceful head over some delicate work

this is Joe's last night, I think go
down and say good-by to him. ,,
" You might call him up here."
" No, I think I will go myself."
"I believe I haven't ever told you, Do

She ran lightly down stairs and opened
the door of the great farm kitchen.
A young man sat by the dull lire, look

farmer boy in home-made clothes, with
nothing about him to fall in love with,

swiftly across the room, and taking his
head between her soft hands, turned his
face to hers.

without letting me know?"
The hard lines of his face softened and
brightened under her gaze till one would
not have known him for the same man.
" I thought I should not see you to
night," he said.
" You know better; you know I would
have crept through the keyhole for ono
last little minute with you."
Ile set her quietly on his knee, as if it
were her usual place.
" How long will you wait for me, Dora?"
" Till you come back."
"1f it were seven years, think how long
it would be."
"If you loved as you make believe,"
said Dora, " you would not go away at
all, but work here till you could build a
little house, and then we would rough it
" No, little Dora, that isn't my kind of

lie put her away then, and looked at
her curiously, as if he had never thought
of her looks before.
"Do you know what your name means?"
he said earnestly. •` I saw it in the paper
that Theodora means Gift of God," and
you have been that to me. If I had never
seen you I should never have had a notion
above a day's work and a night's sleep.
It isn't your looks I love, but you do look
very pretty. Perhaps it is the red dress."
Thank you," said Dora, with a. smile
trembling through tears.
"I will write when I have any luck,"
said Joe ; " and come home on New rear's
eve, when I do come; and if you wear this
red dress I shall know you have waited

" So do I," said Dora, heartily.
'Tis as easy to say seven years as one ;
and we read of Jacob's seven years' ser
