Old farmer Joe steps through the doors;
As wide to,hiat aS the gates of Thebes;
And thoughtful walks across the Boors
Whereon are piled hls Winter stores
And taunts the vrolits of his glebes.
Ten tone of timothy' up there,
Arid four of clover in the hay;
Red top that's cut well, middlln' fair;
And blue of mote oblong'and square,

Reflective in the learstrmiti, yard ;
And stocks areatacked on every hand,
The last offspring of the land.
To labor long mulatained and hard.
Cart loads of 'pi:until:ilia yonder he,
The horse is feeding in his stall,
The oats are bundled scaffold high::._
The peas and beans are heaped hard by,
As if there was some festival.
At lengtliold farmer Joe sits down—
A patch - aerosol each of his knees;
Re crowds his hat hack on his crown—
Then - claps his hands, so hard and brown,
And like ft farmer lakes his case.

The Story Teller.
I was about to take a journey to Phila
delphia to transact business for the firm
of Van Uyck 46:, Co., to which I had just
been admitted...partner, „after . serving a
term of years as a Wit:dr.:keeper.
My father, having reached those balmy
days when easy chair and slippers woo
with irresistib'e force, and being well off
in this world's goods. had decided to re.
tire from business, haring me to occupy
his phi in the firm.
Thor, at the age of twitity-four, with
good health, a tolerable personal appear
ance and tine prospects, I had us fair a
start in life as one could wish.
In Philadelphia,uptly termed "The City
of Brotherly Love,' as I thought, when I
hitt plirtakeu of its hospitalities, resided
an old friend of toy father, who had not
seen me since my childhood.
By letter it was arranged that on my
arr;%al I should immediately repair to
Mr. Arundel's house, he insisting on re
ceiving me as his guest, and make his ac
quaintance, and that of his family.
The exact time of my coming was not
fixed, and thus it happened that early one
February evening I reached their house,
to find it brilliantly lighted, and myself
a little unexpected.
Mr.,and Airs. Arundel, both of whom
I at once liked, extended to me so cor
dial a reception, however, that I could
but feel myself welcome. -
"Our young people have company this
evening," remagked Mr. Arundel; who
seemed to be a tery pleasant and jovial
gentleman. "Had we known when to
expect you it shouldn't have been so.—
Your first evening should have been a
quiet ime,,passtiltn our midst, devoted to
breaking the hx and getting comfortably
used to us."
"Never mind," interrupted Mrs. Arun
del's cheerful voice. "I trust We shall
succeed in making Mr. Van Dyck feel at
home with-us as it is. Our daughter and
her young friends propose to entertain
theatricals, which I hope Mr. Van Dyke
will tint• feel too - much fatigued to
"To be sure nat ! to be sure not!" ex
claimed Mr.-Arundel, heartily, before I
could reply. "We'll,give our young friend
Arthur, here, plenty of time in which to
rest betore the play begins, and he can
receive his introductions later. So my
boy, we'll have a cup of tea, and let John
show yob to our room at once."
Nearly an hour later, after a. careful
toilet made with thoughts of the daugh
ter who had been mentioned, I descend
ed to the.parlor, and found it pretty well
filled with guests seated- as expectant
spectators, while a subdued murmur of
voices was audible from beyond the sear
let•curtain whicb hid embank room from
"Come here, Arthur. Take a seat by
am," 'said Mr. Arundel. "The play is
about to liegin, I believe." •
Even as he spoke a bell tinkled, and
the curtain was clumsily swept Made. It
disclosed small but beautifully construe

Absurd and shallow as, was this plot,
the play was rendered in the most spirit
ed manner. The part of Lady Alice was
played with touching pathos, by a love
ly girl with fair hair and gentle eyes,dress
ed simply in white.
Mr. Arundel pointed her out to me.
"That young lady is my daughter Ju
lia. She is called very pretty," ha added
a little complacently.
"And merits the praise," I assented,
warmly. "Hot who is the dark one—the
bewitching Elsie ? I confess I have fall
en in love with her."
Mr. Arundel laughed so heartily that
there were several cries of "hush ! ere he

appeared resplendent iu sCarlet satin and
rich lace, her dark hair clustering in
thick culls ahore her noble brow, sur
rounded by a diadem of diamonds, her
eyes sparkling, her cheeks glowing with
excitement, I exclaimed aloud :
"Glorious creature!"

and smiled on me.
'•Miss Elsie is radiantly beautiful," said
to Mr. Arundel.
"Du you think so ? perhaps you
are right. Yun see she's younger that ,

rapidly, no doubt."
Mr. Arundel seemed shaking with un

dears," lle then presented me.
Miss Arundel held out her hand timid

large blazing eves. then said heartily:
"I noticed you from the stage, Mr. Van
Dyck, and knew at ones I should like
you. I played my best to please you"
I was a little disconcert- d by this
charming candor ; but every one laughed,
and Miss Julia asked :

Ju another moment Elsie sod I were

"Every one is looking and laughing at i

"Impossible!" exclaimed I. deprecating
ly. "Your waltzing is the very escence cf
grave—the poetry of motion."
"At any rate, I've had enough of it. It
is lovely in the conservatory ; let us go in
there and get cool by the fountain."
I followed her lead willingly enough.
"Isn't this delightful ?" sighed Elsie. as
soon as we found ourselves alone, drop
ping her somewhat dashing manner amid
looking up at me with a lauquid, almost
timid glance.
She caught my admiring gaze and smil

"Here's a seat among the roses for yon,

fountain is as cool as ice,and as sparkling
as diamonds ; let me fill this goblet for

Here Elsie, half kneeling, presented
the goblet with a bewitching grace. Judge
me not harshly, kind reader, when I ad
mit that my heart beat rapidly. I was
young and susceptible.
"I've no accomplishments," went on my
charmer. "I cannot play the piano, nor
sing, nor dance like sister Julia; but—
here she paused and looked at me half de
fiantly—"l can play billiards"'
"A sort of Di Vernon," retorted I, by
- no means startled from my Self-possession.
"0 dear! I'll tell you called me
"Did von call me dear r' I asked sillily.
"No, I never call a gentleman dear;
