'went right.., The good house-wives in.
the village of B. were busy in making
a second match for poor Sampson; and
like prudent • women, - they ! all pitched
upon one the .very : antipodes of poor
Mrs. Sanipson, who was dead and gone.
Sosan'dnwe t t was mild, goOd natured
Mid," smart," and all eyes. were turned
upon her as the future Mrs. Samps,on.
She was jost.the . right age, had a
little rprqierty, and all declared he could
never do I better;
_doll Mr. Sampson,
like" t reasonable man, believed V%ihat
ever 'body- SaitVand married .her. This
tiine, at lehstolie neighbors had no tea
son to complain. -'The second Mrs.
Sampson Was A mirror of.patience ; the
tierghors 'who hapmed in; about real
time, Could find no.faulVwith the bread
'and utter. the last article being thick
enou g h to satisfy the 'most.captious:-
and As for pie, or cake, all declared
her's Were no „ 'mother-in-law pieces."
The shoemaker most and would be
- hippy. Months - passed away, and if
the predictions of the: neighbors were
to_ be verified, ,Mr. Sampson's appear
ance was somewhat equivocal for. a
happy. loam .It was' certain that he
grew thin, did not whittle, or laugh, or
hum half so often as he used to d0...6
His step was listless, and he seemed to
have lost rupch of that sturdy activity .
which had formerly distinguished him.
The neighbors- - Were completely at a
stand. • Mrs. Sampson Was • strictiv
scrutinized, but nothing could be de
tected; She was patience personified.
Meanivhile the childr!n accustomed to
the. severe, disci tline' of their - mother,
no sooner 'ound -themselves subjected
to the milder sway of a step-mother,
.Whose rleh./ to control them was, to

~ I.l e er Mrs. Sampson talked, and
coaxed, and wept and, in one or twO
instances, even had: the temerity to
put a .6 motherli-ss child " dime cellar;
all to no purpose. They were as one
Manageahlei as a parcel of wibl colts
'broken free:from the 'pasture, nod antic
witlethe first eonsciousness of , freedom.
My. Sampson could,. not mirage them,
th t wa's . out of the :question : he had
never ihotoTht of - doing while. their
mother was „alive, and how could he
now that she Was,dead and gone?—
Among the trials awarded to the . Patri=
arch Job,, it is well .perhaps that his
sex precluded the possibility of his
passing the l ordeal of a mother-in-law's
lot. So thOught the second Mrs. Samp
son: Site had tried • everything, and
now hee,paiience was completely ex
hausted. Oile day just as her husband
was coining in. to dinner. driven to des
peration: ,the - accumulated in of so
many' uneoverfiable children, she sud
denly armed-herself , with s handful: of
hemlock tope, and laid them about her
on eve side, at the same time order

band entered, and far from flinching,.
she resOlthely Wel him what \ she had

,teferable din. Mr. Sampson was at,
once in 6ne spirits. , His wile had ne
ver looked hail so handsome before.-e-
Thechihlren were as Whist as mice in

kept her word, and though the neigh-_
horsoitied the children, and talked
mournfully of the serrowii of poor Mr.
Sampson, from that i time begau to
