there is many a countess who would count no
price too great by which she might purchase
the charms of Mario Maillard, who outshone
all other maidens of La Vinette as the sun
does the stars. For alhl that, Marie was a great
favorite with all ber companions. Uncon
scious Of her own superiority, she did not ob
trude it upon others.
One afternoon -it chanced that Marie and
several of her companions were returning
merrily from the vineyard whither they had
been to estimate the probable amount of the
coming vintage. All at once, one of them
espied in the road an old woman, walking
along by the help of a staff which she held in
her right hand. She turned t..wards
and awaited their coming.
"What can we do for you, good mother,"

When the sybil had hobbled away, richer
by some francs than before, Marie was ban
tered not a little by her companions on the
destiny which had been marked out for her.
“" Which shall it be, Madame La Ditehesse,
or Madame La Couttesse ?" inquired Lizette,
I have a good mind," said Marie, .qn re
turn fur your malice, to steal away your Philip,
and marry him myself. In that case, at least,
Lizette, who would have been very unwilling
for Marie to attempt in earuestwhat she threat
ened injest, thought it best to drop the ban
tering tone she had at first assumed. As for
Marie, she thought little of the prediction.
To her mind it was so altogether improbable
that she did, not think it worth while to wttate
a thought upon it.

and vexed at the necessity which compelled
her to wade through the Witter. She had bawd

MIS heard at her side, saying :
" Mademoiselle permit me to escort you to
the other side."
Marie looked up, and encountered the re
spectful gaze oz` a young man dressed in Work
ing attire, with a broad brimmed straw hat
upon his head. She had time, though it was
but a moment to perceive that he had fine
black eyes and a prepossessing- countenance.
Not being disposed to prudishness or coquetry.
she accepted wirhout hesitation the proffered
aid and was soon upon the bank.

the young man, were fixed upon her in admi

wished to secure additional assistance. If you
would like to inquire, you can accompany
Thank you," said the young man. -noth

They walked along together, conversing so
ciably. Marie learned incidently that her
companion`s name was Ilenrique Armand,
and that he was the only son of a widowed
mother, living in a village some twenty miles
away, and that it was for the purpose of re
lieving her necessities, and placing her in a
more comfortable situation, that he was now
about to hire himself out. This information
led her to regard Henrique with still greater
favor, and she could not help wishing that her
father might engage him.
Farmer Mail Lard was also prepossed in timir
of Tienrique, and as he really wished to hire
some one to gather in the vintage and aid in
other farm-work, it was not long before a bar
gain was struck, and the new-comer was in
stalled as a member of the household. lieu
rique's after course did not belie these impres
sions. It was not long before he became a
general favorite. When the labors of the day
were over. he would get his flute or guitar for

were so pleasing that a repetition would often
be demanded. On one (weasion, having re

A friend in Paris has furnished us with an
interesting anecdote of Omer Pacha, one of
the master spirits of the Turkish Bnipire.—
The son of a poor Austrian Liextenant of the
name of Hattah, Omer was, in his youth, up
pointed Sub-frispector of Roads in Dalmatia.
Already he was tired, of Austria, whose Gov
ernment he detested. Turkey being the
neighboring country, offered him the best
chance of making his fortune ; with a. passport
and some money he passed the frouiier, and
entered by the village of Omer-Assay. Hard
ly had he penetrated into Bosnia, than he was
plundered by robbers of all he possessed., even
to his shirt. A Turkish peasant took pity on
him, and. furnished him with clothes and
money. Arriving at Benja Loaka without re
sources, lie was happy to find employment in
the house of a Turkish merchant; he had a
daughter, with whom the young Austrian be
came en ntored, and was about to marry her,
when, unfortunately, she died. From this
time liattah turned Mahometan, and took the
name of Omer, in remembrance of the first
Turkish village lie stopped at. From Benja
Loaka, Omer went to Widdin, to seek service
under Hu,-in, Pasha. ..t this time he was in
the flower manly beauty, representing one
of the most graceful models of the Croat race.

etrating, and a splendid figure. Ile presented

tent, lined within with red velvet and

tertal the tent without ceremony just as the
chief had risen from his siesta.
What do you want ?" smoked the Pacha.
o To enter the service of your Excellency,"
cc We have already too many strangers in
our trvops," was the reply.
On then took out of his pocket a small
package, neatly folded, and begged the Pacha
to accept it.
c. What is all this I" asked the chief.
< 4 Some gloves, your Excellency."
44 And what are they used for I" (gloves
being a thing unknown to him.)
cc When you are marching in the broiling
sun," replied Omer, "hove sot your fair hands
sometimes blistered, and do not your lingers
often get stiffened holding your hard bridles?"
44 And how do you get them on ?' said the
Pasha, with a smite.
Omer quickly showed him. Having got
them On, Hussini raised his arms and gazed
upon his hands in astonishment, as did his
officers, who then entered the tent. These
gloves got Onier employment, and soon after
he became the Paella's aid-de-camp. When
the Governor of Widden died, he set off for
Constantinople, and rising gradually, became
First Step to Blain.
G 4 My first step to ruin," exclaimed a wretch
ed youth, as he tossed from side to side on
his straw bed in one cornet of liisprison house,
""was going fishing on the Sabbath. I knew
it was wrong; my mother taught me letter;
my Bible taught me better ; but I would heed
none of them. I did not think it would ever
come to this ! lam undone ! lam lost 1"
What a warning is contained iu the above
lines, to Sabbath-breakers ! The wanton des
ecration of that holy day, may be looked upon
as a light thing, by frivolous young men ; but
it is not so. God, in his Word and in his
Providence, makes it a very serious matter.
It is more corrupting to the heart than many
suppose. It seems to lead directly away from
God; and, consequently to crime, with a
strange facility ! Just watch the course of
the habitual sabbath-scorner, and, you will
most likely see him come to some bad end.
Perhaps he becomes an infidel, and “says in
his heart," "There is no God!" Bew•ar4 of

on the ground in a vain attempt to throw his
heels into the air. There was solicitude in
her tone and a corn broom in her band as she
looked at him.
" You must not act so gymnastily, dear,"
continued she, "you will force all the brains
you have got into your head if you do. You
