For my rambles all led to the kitchen, and the cooki

While the Spinning-wheel, wash-tub and chtirtribish
took the place of piano and salt
And one day went by like another, taking beauty
and blushes along. t
Yes, 7 knew • I've been cross Mid prOoking and
hateful as hateful:could be;
But, If ever a woman bad reason, I'm sure that wo-

For •t was ; scold when I; caught the measles, and

That you have stormed and 'fretted and scolded,

You had your beaver and broadcloth, your pipe and
tobacco and snuff;
llnt If I had a sbllllng gingham, you always west
off in a huff.
And when II dared ask for a bonnet, an apron, or

It was sure to end with a quarrel, and a tit of the

Sly! where are the thanks, and the wages, for the
'making and mending of clothes?
The spinning and wearing and quilting, and the
knitting and darning of hose?
And what of of the baking and broiling, and wash

The foddering, feeding and milking, and doing of

is quite divine:

Yet I think that you have forgotten that the homer

And 1 thltik you forgot' to whisper in the; honest

Bet once, erhen you had the fever. and they said
you irould die with the light,
I watched, by your restless pillow, all the wearisome,
livelong night.
And I told my ilearenly Father that if be would
spare your life,
I would let bygones "be bygones, and be a true and
faithful will,.
And, when the danger was over, i tried with a tight
But, alasf poor human nature was human nature
For a month from that night, of watching. each

And you mid that you whished you had married
that fright of a Nancy BooL
Then we bad an old fashioned quarrel, for-I had a
world of pride,
And your liking for that girl Nancy, I couldn't and
wouldn't abide.
And, althougn you didn't half mean choked
the good teed lu my heart,
And since then with the years we've been drifting
still further and further apart.
But sometimes 1 poise and wonder what the end
of lt all will be...
And what account I Shall render when the *aster
shall call for me;
For there tuu,t be one . last' quarrel, cold word and
witherli/g . sneer,
To be f4:4luvred: by one long silence, the silence of
many a year. ,
Sometime:4, when' I've sat In the twilight, so hope
, less, and friendless andlone,
While the breath' of the fragrant summer floated
up from the fleldsnew-mown, ,
I have thOught of our blighted summer, with its
blossoming hopes long dead,
And sighed for the grave that would shelter and
pWow my aching head.
Then go out from the hearthstone, Peter, homeless
and friendless, alone
Stubborn;embittered and faithless, we are reaping

And better I carry my burdens the rest of the Jour
ney through, .
Than with . troubleand heavy reproaches to sadden
and weary you. . .
Yet once, in the sunny springtime that gladdened
theiong ago,
We thought we should travel together through Lim
itless weal or woe;
But now by the gloomy threshold our wearisome
paths divide, • T
And to-morrow the restlest ocean betwein ns will
deipen wide. •
Ala, wellt my forehead is farrowed with many a line
of care,
And many a Une of silver >a threading my auburn
halm •
And many s weary heartache has made me sullen
and cold,
And the' laughing girl you married U & woman
• grave ana old.

oldest-inhabitant, said that during
his' earthly pilgrimage,', he had so ;
journediat numerous towns, but in no
one of them had any young man who .
dressedinieeliand did no work, tarn
out well. Captain Brown who worked
hard, hitt managed so b adly that he
was never out of debt, glared savage
ly whenever he saw handsome Jo
Mallisoh with his hands in the pock
ets of ilhis neatly-fitting coat, and
took ocCasion to , remark to the, first
person he met that he wished the old
days, n which ileople who' had no
visible Means of support were prose
cuted would return again. Squire
Beatein who kept the postollice, ad
mitted; to Certain astute questioners
that Jo Mallison never received any
letters,l4o it was impossible that any
one w ' sending him money with
which to support himself in idleness;
Suspicion even ran so high that Bill
Bridger; who was the only apotheca
ry and I candy-seller at Kingsboro,
and who had Jo Mallison for quite a
steady' customer, made it a rule to
examine very carefully every bank
note that Jo offered in payment. lest
haply the handsome do-nothing might
be circulating counterfeits. The mar
ried women At Kingsboro, who had
to work hard, as women alniost al
ways 'do in new towns in' young
States' carefully pointed out Jo to
their sons as an example to be shun
ed, exeelit so far as personal neatness
was concerned:
But the' Kingsboro girls differed
fromthe rest of the community in
their estimation of Jo. He might be
indolent --in fact they knew he was,
'for he, might alMost always 'be , seen
on the ' main street of the village ,
sauntering along while other men
were at 'work—but he was handsome
and he, dressed with real taste , and
his breath never smelt
_of whisky i or
tobacco3.and he, was always polite,
and he was never awkward or ill at
ease or presuming i when in the socie
ty of ladies, and he seemed to under
stand all his fan ebmpanions so well.
In all thesurespecis he was quite dif
ferent from most bf the Kingsboro
boys, So that when good mothers
wa red; their daugfiters against young , '
men Who could on y give fine words '
proof in of alfecti n, the dainsels ex
perieneed strong ['misgivings as to
what they would ifto if Jo , Mallison
were Lb propose. 1 . i
But 'Jo saved them the necessity of
deciding any suchiquestion.l He pro
pased to nobody ; he made love to
nobody; he seemed to haie no spe
cial favorites among the ' girls of
Kingsboro. He never dven flirted ;
he seemed to lArtily enjoy himself
when with ladies, ;and to express his
gratitude so deftly as to leave no one
a word uport which to base. a suspi
cion of any stronger sentiments.
And he did not stop with conquering
the hearts of all the King sboro girls.
Withotit - any seeming intention to do
so, he on the hearts of a few elderly
womenlin the town. They did not
mean to give countenance to a showy
idler, but somehow, when Jo would
coax some bad or fretful child to take
a. walk with him, and then send the
child home with a head full, of Bible
stories and a mouthful of pretty
sonos l t he mother of the child would
reluctantly admit that the handsome
young Ido-nothing did have a real
good heart.
But still Jo did no work, nor did
he try to do any. He boarded at the
only hOtel in town, paid his bills,
avoided the bar-room, never played
cards, always went to church on Sun
days, and ever formed one of the
scant score of faithful souls who on
Wednesday evenings used: to hold
prayetimeeting in a corner of Kings
boro church.,
There was not at Kingsboro any
club,' that institution so inthistriously
bated by all good women, but there
was a leathering place which fulfilled
all the requirements of a Club, and
that has the_ postoffice. The mail
stagelWas nominally due at seven in
the erening, so half the nut inhabi
tants I congregated at Bi ll Burth's
saddl-shop, which fo rmedthe ante
roOrn of the postoffice, im mediately
after upper, and they usually 'enjoy
ed s'l two-hour conversation before
the arrival and distributiOn of the
l them a hint tag° home.
Subjects for conversation were not
very oOmerous at Kingsboro, and as
the few native characters with any
salient points had been very thor
oughly discussed during he many
sessions of the men who waited for
the mail, the ' arrival of JO Mallison
was a perfect godsend. Itlis hardly
necessary to say' that Jo found but
few ompanions among the Kings
boro Men. The young taen hated
him or estranging their sweethearts
and ea'ch of the elder men was afraid
that 36 might marry his daughter
and come under the parental roof for
suppnrt. Theories about Jo were
pleat •! among the men who talked
about him, but none of them were
flattering to the young man's charac
.ter ; Counterfeiter, burglar's accom
plice 'confidence man, horse thief,
fugitive from justice there was
some) one to prove that Jo de
served, each of these unpopular appel
lations, while the only theory in the
least degree tolerable was' that of a
scatter-brained youth who, consumed
'parts' of hair-oil and read the New
York Romance—he believed Jo was
an exiled prince in disguite; but even
princes were unpopular among the
hard-working population of Kings
bora. .
One cool night, several weeks after
Jo's appearance at Kingsboro the
opposing theorists as to Jo's dame
ter enOged in a many-cornered and
very lively duel. It was' during a
season when sudden atmospheric
changes made most of the Kingsboro
people bilious ; otherwise the Ibitter-,
ness with which the 'conversation ft
nally came to be characterized'would
have been inexplicable. Squi r e Rip-

Economy ,is frequently 'supposed
touonsist only in the art and prac
tice of sewing. •To economize in our
money it is thought we only need to
curtail on 4 expenditure ; to econo
mize our'time, only to employ sedu
lously every moment. Economy,
however, i though it includes the ele
ment. of frugality, also includes much
more. It is more cornplex in its na
ture and 'aims at higher results. To
economize anything of value, in the
true sense of the word, is so to use
it as to extract the highest degree of
,benefit which it is capable of,produc•
ing. To do this it may often be
needful to practice strict frugality,
while at other times the same end
would be secured only hy a liberal
expenditure. The economical use of
money, for example, frequently de
maMs much pinching; much sacra
flee and much denial ; but on other
occasions it equally requires an open
purse and a ready hand.
A man with a limited income and
a growing; family cannot practice
true economy unless lie saves some
thing for tunes of sorer need.. If he
be , prudent and wise, he will so • reff li -
ulate expenses .as to have at least
a small surplus at the end of each
year to invest for the future. Yet a
few years later, perhaps, when the
actual needs of the family have in
creased, when the children should
be educated, or when sickness or
misfortune should be' relieved, the
same frugality would frustrate the
very ends of true economy. ; There
are times in the lives of everyone of
us when money can be made so very
useful, ' and when' to spend it -will
carry out such noble purposes, that
it would be the extreme of wasteful
ness to hold it . back. How to dis
cover these
. reasons, to avail one's
self of these opportunities, to provide
for them before they come, and to
be wisely liberal when they do Ap
pear, are all probleths which are in
volved in the economical use of
It would be well . if, this subject,
including as it does, so much of life's
weal or woe, could receive deeper
thought than we give it. A t present
-.vcrarcly learn anything °tithe true
use , pf money, except through exper
ier4, and that often a sad and bit
ter one. •We spend it °or what we do
not need, and withhold it when 'mist .
essential, thils often drawing down
calamities i upon us that might . have
been enttely averted had we but
studied th relative value and impor
tance of the many- purposes • which
the use.of money can fulfil.
The same truth holdS good i in re
lation to time and power. It, is a
common fallacy in this busy, eager
age, to imagine that our time is best
economized by continuous ipplica
tio'n. We have yet to learn that na
ture can never be coaxed :or cheated.
Her law! and her penalties admit •of
no exceptions. 6he gives to each a.
certain limited amount of time and
strength, and sufficient intelligence
to learn how to use them to advan
tage. The rest is in our own hands.
If through ignorance or wilfulness
we waste it, either by idle frivolity
or excessive overwork, the results
are invariably disastrous. In the
one case, the results of our life .must
be at least meagre arid feeble, if rfet
positively injuriouS; in the other,
they are weakened and cut short by
•exhaustiori. The true economy of
time and energy is a vast and most
fruitful subject of study-I; one that
underlies our whole prosperity, na
tional and individual. It contains
many problems for our. solution,
'problems well worthy of all the
'tient thought and sound judgment
we can bring . to
.bear upon them. How to,decide wisly upon our life
work, how to fit ourselves -to enter
upon it; - how to concentrate the
mind most . effectively - and to relieve
it most completely; lioiv to discover
the proper alternative of labor and
rest, and the best methods of refresh
ing'and recreating the powers for 're
newed 'exertion—all theSe questions,
and many other's, are • involved in
what may at first sight appear
so simple a matter' and one so easy
of adjustment as the economy of
time "and force. • '
Let no one, however, be discour
aged by these apparent complexities.
If we but admit them, and bend
courageously to the task of unravell
ing therii, we shall,ifind them one by
one, yielding to : our efforts: The
present danger of the age is that of
ignOring the difficulties, and :resting
satisfied if we only-keep - busy through
the - inking hours. It is a common
expression to use, in commending
akindustrioas person, that " he nev
er wastes a minute.". But we have
yet, to learn that waste has a larger
significance than that of simple inac
tion, and economy a fuller meaning
than that of continuous labor. As
in money, so .in time, talents and
power, the truest economy must,. al
ways consist in using them in such a
way, and for such periods, as • will
produce the largest and best • results
of -which they are capable.. Such
economy is well worthy of being re
solved into a practical science, and
made an essential part of education ;
and, unlike so many other branches
of study, it will have full opportuni
ty for an everprogressive develop
