A LOVE STORY.
There. was no doubt about it;
John NVeare was perfectly wretched
that night. He had qtrirteled with
Jennie IRO, and he wasn't' going to
make it up. .The fact was-she gave
herself too many air's, and he (lEln't
mean to stand it any longer. —He
didn't care if, she was pretty, ; That
was no—reaS4 why she should-let
Ilan' EL dozen fellows . at a time:hang
bo t. the shop, or stroll in one at a
dine, and, leaning on' their elbows,
i:hatter and smirk and smile over the
.
taunter; cadets -atd officers; too,
wild young fellows, irk) ;only did 'so
for their own idle amusement, and
would no_ more dream marrying
her than they would of - inviting her
to .a ball .that was coming off -net,
month,
.TO he sure, be was only a
common cavalry, soldier, hat thin he
hail been in the service a good :many
years .now,---had an excellent charac-
ter, and:a good trade at his-bask, his
Either had died not long : since, and
there was a_cotCage already kir Jen
nie to walk into, and they might set
tle-down at once if she'd only[ be son
ble. Jennie. acted as stiop woman
for her sister, -,-Mrs - Evans. - A very
poor little shops, very small
a id badly stOcked,JOr Mrs. Evans
riad only managed . to get a few
hounds worth •of things with what
had been suhscribz,d for her at the
garrison afrer the fever had -carried
”ff her huSband. The speculation
answered pretty .welt at first, for
many of the Akers wives, knowing
what an industrious woman -Mrs.
Evans-was, made a point'Of. - buying
their tapes and cotton and sticks of
sealing-wax s _of her:. Then . Jennie's
pretty face was
- seen - behind the Conn- .
ter, - anal the Shop - was filled prom
morning until night with officers and
frisky young cadets, and theoriginal
customers took flight-:though 'Mrs.
Evans did not-know R. - believing the.
busiiiess was safe in the keeping of
Jennie, worked hard at the dress
making (she had three children to
support. and - .the shop alone `would
not do it). ' - .. .
The officers were not profitable.,
customers; for they only went to-flirt
with . Jennie tinder the excuse of buy
ing, a balmy paper, _or prlial)s asidng.
~
for a tifne-table. - .i, ! •
Jennie made the most trimiand
pretty rod obliging- of shop-woinen,
and the,place itself wits always a pat
tern of neatness ; lint the officers'
wives did not care to go and Illy
thread .Where they were evidently in
terrepting a flirtation, and so the
business continJed, to fall off; and
.Mrs. Evans began to get quite un- .
happy about it. Jennie pretty,
kind-hearted, thoughtless Jennie--
had no idea that she had anything to
do' with it. or she ibuld have sent
every one of her admirers off at a
pace that would have -astonished
them. She had been only too de
lighted, after her brother in-law died,
to come frolin ' Devonshire an live
1 with her sister at Rio -i; —not
only because she was- ye : fond of
her sister, but also because she had
wished many times to see John Weare
again. She had - made his acquaint-;
ance when her brother and he—fog
they had been in the
_Same. regiment
—were 'stationed at - Plymouth, and
she had payed them a flying visit
with her father. John had told her
that he was tired of the - service and'
wished to settle down, and inwardly
.thought that he could do no better
than to ask - her to settle with him.
He had been leery attentive-when she
came to WoZwieh, and .gradually
established himself on the footing of
alovei, - till he found the' shop Away&
- filled with - the .officers and cadets.
At first he - was shy of . appearing be
fore his superiors, then he got, jealous
and, at last angry, for he, -felt and .
knew that they meant her -no good,
and beside it was doing real injury
to the business of the shop. At last
he spok e his mind -- and - tord . the co.i
quettish Jennie - what he -thought,,
and was snubbed for his pains. • -
'lf yOu think I don't know. bow to
take care of myself, Mr. Weare,
you
are very much mistaken, and I d(int
%Vint any one to tell me what's right
or wrong. I know for my-s It'
'Well. Miss .h-nnie, 1 didn't mean
to giVeoffence. I only; told you what
I trought.' .. ,
'Then you might have kept your
thoughts to yourself,' i she said, with
a little toss of her pretty head-.-`un- .
less they had been 'nice ones,' she
added. -He heard the aside, and
im ked up his courage. - .
'lt's awful!) , hqrd. too, when one
that really cares can't getenear you,'
he replied. Just then Jennie caught
sight of Ctilitaitlie, a tall and
handsome man, withlong whiskers
and . a red nose, coming in the (fired-
Win of the shop, with;a big bunch of
flowers in his hand. She had heard
John Weare's last; Words, but she,
was secretly of the. opinion that 'he
ought to have come up to the scratch
before,' so she thought that a little
jealousy might do hint good:

He kept resolutely away for a
whole month—never once went near

him she : might send for him or get
her sister to invite him to tes, as she
iad done before. But John Weare
was not'sent for, neither was he in-
vited to tea, and his spirits began to
wax low.
. .
'lf she cared about me she'd have

izirl; and there's the cottage all ready
for her to'step into, and me ready, to
retire from the service, and, a good

And the fruit in the garden (of .the
cottage) all ripe, and no one to pick
The very nest morning John
Weare walked deliberately into thy
shop and asked fora penny newspa,
per,. and had 'the felicity of : being
served by Mrs. Evans.
• - ,'Quite matranger, Mr. Weave,' she
said but that' was the only remark
she made, and for the life of him he
could not screw up his courage to
islc for iler sister
That night Joljn Weare was miser
able.
'he can't care a rush for me,'. he
thought, and marched all over • the
town, and nearly to Greenwich and
thick in his excitement. .. • •
The - next day was a lucky one for
John.• He came across Hibbs.. Hibbs
was Mrs Evans' eldest boy. - \o-one
knew What his real name' was,or'why
he was called , BibbS; but he was
never called anything else. •
'Bibbs,' said John,' Weare, • 'come
and have some fruit;' and he
him off in triumph - to the cottage and
s'Anled him with gooseberries until
he couldn't move; and with black
cuirants till his mouth was,as black
as a crow. Then he carried: him in
side and good him on the table - and
_
sat down before him. .
glow old are you, Bibb;?' •
He thought it better to begin the
eor,!vereation with a question.
'Five and a half. Is Ibat your
sword up there
• 'Yes. :Who gave,yon those bronze
stmee,'Bibbs?'
Now .he knew Jennie ha 1 given
them to . him,' but be eo wanted to
hear. her name. 1 .
'Auntie. S le's - going away Foon,'
he. added. 'Let me look at your
sword now ?'-
'Where is she going - tn . ?' he asked
in consternation.
'Devonshire. Do leG me try on
your sword ?' •
'Why is she going?' he asked; with
a sick feeling in'his heart.
'She's ill, L think, nnd she's always
crying now -;lone day she was crying
over her SilVer,Ahing von gave her,
and kissing it like everything.'
The ‘silv,er thing' was a little heart
of aliout the size of a shilling. which
he had bought at Charlton Fair last
'October, and timidly asked her to
accept. • • •
John Weare. jumped up and show—
ed 13ibbs his sword, and carried . him
on his hack all over- the -place and
eptreated him to have Imore black
currants in his delight. But Iliblis.
declined. •
'Aunt Jennie's going to bring me
some from

So Jennie was going , to Eltham,
was she. John Wiare took Bibbs•

with a - -White-woolly lamb that - moved
on wheels and squeakid, and a mon
key that went up• a . stick in being
gently pushed. - •
-Trying over her silver thing!'
said John Weare. go and hang
about the Eltham road till I see her
and beg her pardon.' • . -
And. he went, and Jennie met him,
and pouted.and declared : she hadn't
once thought of him, and then - broke
down and erica-.. And - John begged
her pardon,*and declared that he had
be`en a heartless brute; and then
Jennie contradicted him and said it
was all her fault, and told him. how •
Mrs. Dunlob,• the colonel's wife, had
one day walked in and ,told her, in
the kindest posSible manner, that bile
was spoiling her sister's business, for
the ladies who had been interested in,
her . welfare kept away because of
Jennie's flirting. propensities, which
filled up the shop .with idle -.officers,
-who were always -in the way ; and
hoW she had been so ashamed and
wretched and so cut up at the deser
tion of John Weave, that she had
intended to go Oack to Devonshire.
`But you won't now ?' lie said, as
they leaned over the stile leading to
the Eltham fields. "You'll get ready

as possible, before the in the

History of the Tomato.

- the-seed reached maturity, he was
discharged, - and, no one knew the
name or. nature of them. They grew
luxuriantly, bearing fruit of .W-large.

and admiration to all, the inmates of

agninSt eating any of the fruit, as
she was sere-it was poisonous, and
besides. planted .the seeds, as she
would endeavor co_ preserve spec.
