• The last \ recitation of the last day
of the distect school term Was over,
and the boy athlAirls shut -their
books and put awdy their slates and

there. Mr. Gillieraft; was the se 'or
member of the school board ;-...a slo
formal man, who liked things cere
moniously, so for his sake'there had
to be alittle delay. He made a lit
tle speech to the children, speaking
at lehgth and deliberately. They
were all pleased to have vacation be
gin, no doubt, but he hoped, etc.
He was sure they would join him in
thanking their excellent teacher,
Miss Thompson for the judicious
manner in which, etc. He trusted
the moral discipline inculcated dur
ing the term would not, etc. And
he hoped some at least of them
would find time to study somewhat
during the vacation, and thus redeem
time which' otherwise would be idly
'spent. The children fidgeted dread
fully during these remarks. The
bine sky and bright air wooed and
coaxed them through tbe'open door;

When the last child was gone, Mr.

"Abe.' !" he said. "It is my

usually, having known her all 'her
life, but this was a formal occasion.
"lifne—ten--eleven," be went on,
counting the bills which he had
drawn from his wallet,—" twelve,

" What ?" said Jean, with a pleas
"A piano! And the dearest little

I could find one. And ever so many

list was interrupted by the necessity .
of taking breath.

could plow with when I wasn't rid

. " Your pony would cost as much
as Elsie's pi 'no," remarked Jean..
" Well, what would you get? "
said .Tames. " Will you get some
nice clothes ? "
" Pshaw I Clothes ! Will you get
a watch, Jean ? "
"Or a breastpin and ear-rings ? "
" Now, what use would earrings be
to her when she hasn't any holes in
her ears, Eiere ? Do tell. us, Jean—
what will you get? "
Jean laughed. It seemed as if all
the, world was bound to find out
what she meant to do with her'
" tell you by-ar.d.by," she saki.
"I've made. up my mind, I think,
.what I'd rather do, but I . want to

the top of the bill as she spoke, and
she pushed Open the gate for the
others to enter, paying no . attention
to Elsie's rather fretful=
" By-and-by. That's a long time.'
Tell us Jean, please do."
After tea was the best time to
catch farmer Thompson at leisure.
At that hour he usually treated him
self to half an hoiir's rest and a pipe
in the porch, and there Jean found
him on this particular night.
" Mr. Gillicraft paid me this to
day," she said, handing him the roll
",,Ay. They are prompt with it,
but that is but fair. 'Well, my lass
—it is a good bit of money. What
will ye do with yohr gains?
" I will tell you something I was
thinking of, father—if you approve,
that is. It is a great many years
since mother and you came from'
Scotland here, and she's never been
home, you know."
"Twenty-one years come October.
'Tis a long time truly," replied her
father, letting a curl of smoke escape
from the,,corner of his mouth.
Well—there was an advertise
ment in the paper, a while ago, about
a steamboat line, the Anchor Line
it's called, I think, *bleb goes to
Glasgow, and it said great reductions
for this summer, and people could
go and come back in the second cab.:
in for forty-five -dollars. Now , if
mother'd like it, and I know she
would, she and I could go for what
r've got, and she could visit grand
mother, and there'd be thirty dollars
left for other things, such as going
down to New York and from Gins
gow to Greenock.' Grandmother
lives in Greenock, doesn't she? Do
you think it's a good plan, father?" 1
" Well, it depends on your mother.
If -she likes to
,go, I'd say naught
against it," replied her father. Then
his habitual Scotch caution relaxing,
he added, " You're a good lass,Jean.
A good, dutiful lass to think f this.
'our grannie's an old woman by

of us. I'll just smoke my pipe out
and then you\and I'll go in and talk
it over with matter."
Mrs. ;Thompson heard the propo,
sal with a tremolo s mixture of be
wilderment and joy. 'She was not a

• Her expectations were realized so

a rough _ passage, and both she and
'her mother were sick for more than

enough for a strong, active girl to
lay day after day In a narrow berth,
watching the curtains swing and the
vessel rock, and very often Jean said
to herself, "I can't imagine what

It's horrid l I only wish Maria were
in• my place, since she wanted , to
come so much, and I at home instead.
I am sure I'd change in a minute, if
Matters mended , toward the last,
and by the time the'steamer entered
the Firth of Clyde, Mrs. Thompson,
as well as Jean, was able to be on
deck. It was a fine day, and as they
slowly steamed up the beautiful Firth
between richly cultivated shores,
with wooded hills dotted with coun
try seats rising behind, and purple
mountain outlines still farther back,
something new . stirred in Jean's
mind, a quife unlooked-for excite
ment and pleasure, which roused and
woke her mind t 9 the glad reception
of fresh impresliions. • It was the
first reward of tier unselfishness, so
it came with theixest of unespecteid
ness and was doubly delightful.
" Mother, there's a castle ! " she
exclaimed. " I truly think it's a real
castle. It looks just like the pictures
And what for no? " replied her
mother, whose Scotch seemed to re
vive, and broaden with the very as

This was no unnatural result of
twenty-one year's separation, but at
that moment Mrs. Thompson did not
remember this: • " It's like a dream,"
she kept on repeating. "This is
Glasgow, and that's my brother that
I never looked to see again I 'lt is
like a, dream, Jean."
If they had
.turned back then and
there for thirteen more days of wea
ry sea, Jean would have felt reward
ed for her journey by the half tearful
rapture which. shone in her mother's
face at that moment. But they did
not turn back: They landed instead,-
and With Uncle Andrew's assistance,
were soon in the train for Greenock.
lie and his sister plunged at • once
into conversation in Scotch so much
broader thin Jean was used to, that
she could hardly follow it. So she
looked out of the window instead of
talking, and there was plenty there
to keep both eyes and mind happily
busy. The trees, the. buildings, the
silver links and 'windings of th:Firth,
the pearl-gray, shimmering atmos7'
phere which enveloped all—it was
unlike anything she had ever seen,
and gave her pleasure which she
had not expected to feel. -
Grandmother's hOuse, or flat, was
in an• old-fashioned street. It was
rather barely furnished to American
eyes, but very clean and orderly,and
there was nothing bare in the greet
ing given by the sweet-faced old
Scotch woman. to her long unseen
child and that child's child. Jean
was amused to hear her in ither spo
ken to as if she were still almost a
baby, while to herself granny aecor
ded a certain respect and distance as
to a stranger and a woman grown.
Her size and age, seemed an entire
surprise to her Scotch relations, who
lad apparently never realized a
growth of which they had heard only
in letters. , •
" She's a big, hearty lass, indeed,
abe's a very good lass 1 " granny
kept on saying. " She's as large for
a maiden as Sandy is for a lad. A'
wed, I can't understand it, Maggie:
Ye were always the - least of my
weans, always the wee one of the
Hock, and: it's rnuekle strange that
your lass should be bigger than any
of her cousins. and your sisters all.
bigger than yoursel'. I'm clear puz
zled about it." • - • •
But pUzzlement was lost in pleas
ure when she understood that the
whole journey was the gift of Jean,
the earnings of - a year's hard work.
She took the girt into her - arms, held
her tight and kissed her heartily. -
'!She who goes a mithering shall
find violets in the lanes," stie said
quoting the pretty-old English pro
verl,. " Yell find it so, my dear las
sie. Ye% be the richer all your life
for giving your mither and me the
ranee of meeting again once more
o , this side of the grave, trust me,
Jean, ye will."
- " rm richer already, granny,"
whispered Jean, warmed through and
through by the words and the em
brace. There was no stiffness be
tween her imi her grandmother after
that. So ny's love was the first
thing bought with Jean's money.
" Sandy " was 13'ne1e Andrew's
son. His mother had long been
dead, and he and its father lived
with granny in her at. He was a
manly young fellow, steady and chee
ry both, and doing *ell as clerk in
one of the large Greenock shipping-
with good chanties of promo
tion. The advent of ,a cousin from
America was an event in his life.
He liked Jean at once and Jean him,
so theygrew, friends speedily.
Udder bis guidance Jean's "violet"
gathering . went on prosperously.
1 There were many . interesting things
to see and do in the neighborhood of
Greenock and bf Glasgow, to Which
place they ran down more than once
in a 'cheap train. There wore rows
on the Firth, and walks into the
lovely hill country, and visits to the
different - aunts and cousins, all of
whoth wanted to see Mrs. Thompson
and make acquaintance with Jean,
and, once they went as far as Edin:
burgh with third-class return tickets,
and Jean saw the wonders of Holy
rood, the Cistle and Arthur's Seat.
It seemed to put new color and life
into history and all the put, this
glimpse of the places where great
things had happened. Jean's inter

owned a share in the People's Libra

histories and fictions, which, read on

which they could not have had elee-

So the` short two months sped
swiftly away, and. the time came tai
go hack. It was a hard parting, as
partings must be, where seas roll be
and old age makes fresh meet- .
ings improbable. But with all its
hardness, all of them felt that it had
been blessed' to meet. Sandy was
even more cast down . than granny,
but he consoled himself by a long,
whispered talk with Jean the, last
evening, in which he promised.- to
come out to America in two years
from then ; and Jean,l am inclined.to
think, half promised to go back again
to Scotland with him. But this is
neither here nor there in our story,
and as-we all know, it is not polite,
to listen when people whisper. So
the travelers sailed again over the
wide Atlantic, the journey not seem
ing half so long or so hard, now that
their faces were set the other way;
and in a few days after the home
coming, all they had seen and done
began to recede into dream-like dis
tance, and they found it almost im
possible to realize - that they had gone
so far and achieved so much. _ .
"I told you you would enjoy it,"
remarked Maria Parsons. " People
always enjoy being able to say 'I
told you so.'"
"And is your money really all
gone ? " said little Elsie, "every bit
of it ,gone ? .-4n..1 you haven't got
one single thing of your own to keep

" Elsie is sorry that I've spent all

night. " She doesn't think I got

I never thought I . should learn to
like traveling, father, but I did ; I
enjoyed it ever so knuch. Then I

ford and bunts - an rO/110113 Grange, held at West
Burlington February 6th, 15.7.9, and published by
request of the Grange.)
In the early days of last autumn,
it was our happy lot to visit an out
look on the top of one of the highest
elevations of the southern - part of
Bradford' county. There we found a
resting place on one of those him I
bowlders, whose history reaches back
to the formation of the sub-carboni
ferous system of rocks. While sea,t
ed an that gray old relic of the pelt
.beholding its associates of an
age dating thousands, yea millions,
of years prior to the creation ornian,
and while reading on their faces the
unmistakable footprints of oceanic
waters and glacial fore; we gazed
upon the scenery of Western Brad
ford and reviewed . the history of the
past. Before us were the orchards,
meadows, harvest fields, gardens, and
homes of the Bradford Yankee, whosei
history lies-within the past century,
and' has been written .by one of our
Patrons lest it' be lost to our children
and our children's children.. Moun
tain and valley, hill and dale were
' around us,—but why have this
- unevenness of surface'?
all these mountains, hills and-valleys ?
Whyl - To fit the earth for the needs
of man. If the earth's'siirface were
perfectly smooth, forming an exact
sphere, it would be uninhabitable,—
nothing more than a barten waste,
without .a rivulet or rill to supply the
wants of• healthy animal and, vegeta
-1 ble life so necessary to the existence
of man. '
How were.these hills, mountains
and valleys formed? . By fixed laws
established by the Creator and Pre
server of the universe. In the begin
ning he created the heavens and the
earth, and by His laws we learn that
ehancve chance is the continued -des.
tiny of all things, whether animate or
inanimate. yes, since that beginning
the surface before us was for a time
lev a el, having no animal or vegetable
life thereon. The surface hardened
only to be broken up by the internal
force created by the Author of all
things as an agent - to prepare a home
for the future family of man. Up
heaval and depression followed each
other. VegetaVe life made its ap
pearance, inheriting the same law
'of change ; then came animal life
possessing the same inheritance.
`Still the inner forces of the earth
were at work forcing an elevation
here and there, mid as a natural con
sequence, depressions elsewhere. As
we viewed the scene we could but
think of the countless years required
to form, to accumulate, and to min
gle the vegetable and animal life that
now lies imbedded within and upon
the rich old Deovnisn system of
rocks, that has not failed to give of
its substance to make the green fields
and bountiful harvest of the husband
man. • Slowly but surely the Age of
Fishes ( Devonian ). prepated :rich
garden for the Patrons of to-day.
Then came the sub-carboniferous
formation, burying all around the
depth of thousands of feet under its
immense weight of sandstone and
shole. Time_passed on; but flame
Nature would not permit such a
dition of things to remain always, so
she adjusted matters by a mighty
convulsion -that rent assunder the
foundation walls of our old Keystone
State from its , northern to its south
ern, from its eastern to its Western,
limits. What a confused mass 'was
to be seen!-Rugged mouttains,
precipices and unfathomable chasms
were to be found. on either hand.
Then the waters came; yea, the very
floods descended and rested upon the
scene. Having • accomplished , their
work, by filling many a frightful
chasm and by rounding or destroying
many an , unsurmountable - precipice,
they too were cast aside so the dry
land might again appear. If drop af
ter drop weanraway the hardest rock,
who shall doubt the work done by
flood after flood ?
But titrie passed on. The earth
became luxuriant with its 'dense
growth - of.vegetable life, which has.
been hoarded by our Great Provider
and condensed for the Alays of the
telegraph and the steam engine. Oh,
how true. • As good and evil chase
each other the world over,: so heat
and cold are ever scrambling for the
ascendency, The summer passes and
the minter. must come, and it did
come, and that, too, with a power
that did the work it had todo. Tru
ly, the footprints .of the glacial period
were made among the sands and in
the rocks of time, reminding us to
day of , the giant forces that play _up..
on the earth's surfaces in times past
and present. .
The wants of man are varied, so - it
needs must be that his Creator would
do as Ile has done by providing the
means to supply them. But it seems
that if any people on this earth have
been given the means by which to
supply their wants, it is the husband
man dwelling in the region of such a
variety of Ibrtile soil as has - been
formed by the action of the elements
on the rich clays and shoals of the
Chemung formation of the, Devonian
epoch, which extends over the great
er part of ;the comity ; but as if this
were not enough, the elements have
floated gypsum, lime.stone, corals,
site; Itc., from the north upon the
surface, to be mingled with the al
ready rich soil. Under such condi
tions with our climate s it seems al
most impossible to find any other
place where the° combined efforts of'
the laborer iu the garden, in the dai
ry, in the orchard, and in the agri
cultural field .arc so well repaid. But
with all the means at our command,
we need more skill in the work which
has been left for us to do. We should
not forget that life is' action, and
that we must act if we would be hap
py. So let us not forget that each
vegetable • production requires its
particular- food, even so much as is
required by animal life. This being
true, it becomes the wise husband
man to — plant the seed where the
reqUisite food is, or else provide It
in some other, way. , The garden,
and the food for the vegetable life of
the garden, have been placed at our
command, and now it becomes us as
laborers in the Master's Vineyard to
out our own salvation, remem-
bering it is • hardeestill to have no
work to do. . -
AFTER TUE MONEY.---A correspond
end who signs herself "..Marie," asks
the New-York Tribu»e bow she shall
raise money for a .small country
church, and says "Do you think it
would be advisable to attempt a con
cert? We have had calico partie.s,
sugar parties, fish ponds, mock post
offices, and the like. If you can sug
gest some new forth of entertainment
you - will earn our sincerest thanks."
The Tribune answers: "We recom
mend a. revival of religion." This
will never do; at least, hardly ever.
"Marie" wants is tb raise money,
and to - de, it by Means of an enter
tainment. It sounds pious to recom
mend a revival of religion to accom
plish this, but we must remember that
a revival of religion is not, when
properly conducted, a money-making
busine3s. One Simon, of Samaria,
,saw money in it, but the
Apostle Peter said to him: " Thy
money perish with thee," and told
him that his heart was. not right in
the sight of Ciod. There are hun
dreds of legitimate entertainments
which are in accord with the growth
of true religion, and some of which
can be made peculiarly Orofitable. A
revival of religion is not generally .
considered an "entertainment." Con
derts are almost always in order, nit
less the singing is too bad. Lectures,
- by sensible lecturers, can be had at
moderate expense. ableaux and kin
dred entertaintrients may be conduct
ed wisely and turned to' account in
debt-paying. There is an immense
field for ingenuity in this direction,
and anybody who invents a new and
wholesome means of making money

A sudden resolution; as suddenly
carried out, found us in this city of
cities". Ten hours before we bad
turned our faces from the "City
Beautiful" and its Exposition.. Paris •
we thought might keep for us and
the good Bostonians, even should the
Exposition_, like others of its kind,
have passed away.
We started upon a night train,
'reaching Dieppe at that most uncom-,
Actable hour, when it seemed too late
to go to bed and too early to sit up,
and when, moreover, we must face
the unmitigated wretchedness of a
channel steamer. It is impossible to
abuse one of these steamers properly.
Adjectives fail. I draw a veil over
the hours. which . intervened until our
landing in New Haven; not the
haven where we should be, but where
we shortly /ere. Let us hope that
the lately completed harbor at Bou
logne, with its new steamers, will at
last give the traveling public what it
has hitherto never enjoyed—an easy
and comfortable communication be
tween France and England. •

of note. We had expected to be met
by a London fog; but this is the

reigned supreme. No contrast can

Joy is not a thing of temperament,
of character, but a religious accent,
plishment, a fruit of tile Spirit. Fruit
is the result of patient, nourishing
care, and with ' culture, sunshine and
showers grow to greater or less per
fection. It is not possible to mann
