Tho work on tho temple building ap

the beginning of tho tabernacle, a building
intended for tho gathering o7 tho people.
It is projected on a largo coalo, and is
magnificent, and on a very peouliar desigu,

manned thorn with sufficient orews of col-

They sailed upou tho ocean fifteen days,
and saw no land. The next day brought

covered tho wa'er as far as tho oyo oould

clear and eloudUss; tho sea was calm, and
far away to tha northward could bo seon

Tho remains of the .'battered fleet gathered

Tho crew of the galley whieh was driv

I never undortook but onoo, said Tim,
to set at naught tho authority of my wife,
You know her way cool, quiet but do-
tormiued as over grew. Just aftor wo
wero married, and all was nioc and cosy,
she got mo into tho habit of doing all the
churning. Sho finished breakfast rather
beforo me ono morning, aod slipping away
from tho table, iho filled tha churn with
cream, and set it down whero I oouldn't
holp seeing what was wanted. So I took
hold readily enough and churned till the
butter oamo. Sho didn't thank mo, but
looked so nice and sweet about it that I
felt well paid.
Well, when nextohurning day carao a
long, sho did the same thing, and I follow
ed suit,and fetohed tho butter. Again and
again it was dono just so, and I was reg
ularly sot for it every time. Not a word
said, you know, of ooursa. Well, by
and by this began to bo rather irksomo ;
I wanted hor just to ask me, but sho nev
er did, and I wouldn't say anything about
it to sftvo my life Soon wo went. At
last I made a resolve that I would not
chum aonther time until sho asked me.
Churning day oamo, and when my broak
fast .ho always cot nioc breakfasts
when that was swallowed, there stood tho
ohurn. I got-up, andstanding for a fow
minutes just to give her a chance, I put
on my hat and walkod out of doors. I
stopped in the yard to givo hor timo to call
ino, but never a word said she, and so
with a palpitating hart I moved od. I
went down town, and my foot was as
rostlcas as Noah's dove. I felt as if I had
dons a wrong. I did not feci exaotly how
but thcro was au indcscriblo sensation
of guilt resting on mo ull the forenoon.
It seemed as if dinner timo would nover
oomc, and as for going homo ono minute
beforo dinner, I would as soon havo cut
my oars off. So I went fretting and mop
ing around town till dinner-hour oame.
Homo I went, feeling very much as a crim
inal mupt when tho jury is out having in
their hands his destiny Life or death.
I couldn't make up my mind exactly how
she, would meet me, but somo kind of
storm I expected. Will you belLovo it
she vcn greeted mo with a smile never
had a better dinner for mo than on that day;
but there stood tho ohurn just where I left
it. Not a word was said ; I felt confound
odly cut, and every mouthful of that din
ner felt as if it would choke me. She
didn't pay any regard to it, however, but
went on juH exactly as if nothing had
happened. Uefore dinner was over, 1
had again resolved, and shoving back my
chair, I marched to tho churn and went at
it, just iu the old way. Splash, dip, rat
tle I kept it up. As if iii spite, tho but
tor was never so long iu coming, I sup
posed tho cream standing so long had got
warm, and so I redoubled my efforts.
Obstinate matter, the afternoon wore
away whilo was churning. I pausod at
