Come Mary throw your work asiJe.
And let your trouble? go ; .
Leave care and toil and smoke awhile,
And spend an hour with me !
We'll seek the eow.siip on the bank,
The primrose in the lane :
And haj py frights and sounds afar
ha!l make us young again.
It's Ions, my love, since you and I
Have heard the bhn-kbird sing.
Or cauplit by running brooks and woods
The glory of'the spring ;
It's long since yon and I have trod
The p:iths were rr.;wtiiorn-i blow :
Then, Mary, fling your work aside,
And let your trouble go.
The trcc shall bend to welcome us,
The flowers ("hail clasp our feet,
The very bees shall hymn our praise
In murmurs soft and sweet ;
The winds shall swell with ready voice
The chorus hih and loud,
And we'll forget the world, my life,
And all its bury crowd.
A thousand thin,r3 await us, love
Blue skies and balmy air.
Green fields, whoe very sight shall make
The heart forget its care ;
Then never sigh, n glad to day,
Thrdw sorrow to the wind.
Nor pause till we have left our ills
A summer' hour behind.
A crotchety and contrary old chap was
Jkl-I Shelleiibarger, a rich old farmer, as
mulish as the donkey in his barn. Hi In I
made his way in the world by the most do,
ged obstinacy seizing hold of whatever
came iu his way, and retaiuing that hold ao
though life depended on it. Joel s niuhsli
ncss had literally lx.cn the waking of liim,
though you mightn't Lave cou.-idore'd the
little, .(it bellied, thick skulled old man as
much of a nuke after ail.
Joel had one son h handsome, clear
headed young man straight as a young
lurch, tail, and as set iu his Way, when he
choose to have one, as old Joel himseil.
This sun, as he grew up, had proved a great
assistance to his father iu workinu his farm,
iinj bin services had been made the most ot.
'J'-.- old mm managed to keep liiiu at home
villi him sometime after he ought to have
been doing lor luniscit". Not an acre of his
(at'tier's possessions was ever cailed his sou's
b? owned nothing in the world save a horse,
which some neighbor had given him, when
i; was a sickly colt, and some sheep, obtain
d iu much the same manner ; and the old
g.-o.iJced hiai the keeping of these.
Joil Shcll-'tibarger and his son differed
often btif there were two points in which
the difference amounted to something scri
The first point concerned cduciti ju,
for which the oid man had the most pro
1 ". :d contempt, s.id the son ha i nor.

t his miii should leave him. That
vrj the first poinr of diflcrence, and that
win how Anson sou led it. The second was
iifcr-iy to 1 e of so easy an arraiigenieut.
At ivlleg'! Ai.sou had found some tilings be-tv.lt?-!
graojaiitig honors, lie had chanced
;..! a ve-y charming co'tibination of curls
nil azarc eyes a red-lipped, dimpled
checked fairy, daughter of one of the pro-fi-ssors,
who, iiistcad of curling her dainty
hi at the homespun suit which his poverty
and his. father's niygnriness compelled hi'ti
to vr-. ar, never termed to be conscious of
a .vtliimr or
arv b- J else wiicti lie was bv.
In slnirt, Anson h.:d found some one to
love, some one th.it hi MM'itc I to m.irry, as
lie gravely informed his fat her. Y ou should

wj going now to set the teal upon his ab-

...i ii i i .. .
jim ; i:m riri.'iiii to umrry any one, seeing
bis father wasn't
thmugh witii him yet
He should never consent,
but a town ji.t'i !
and every Shellenbarger acre should go to
ctraners before Anson should li4Ve one. if
he presisied in rn idea so ridiculous !
"And pray what harm is there in being 5
town girl?" questioned Bnbio Halstead,
when Anson to'd her, half iaughing, half
vexcl. and altogether rueful, for. without
a-sisiaiiee from his father, he could not mar
ry Barbie for a long time yet.
Ans.m laughed again, but with some em
I nrrsissim-::', saying, '"My futher is afraid
ti at a daughter of Professor Halstead would
iioi make a very good farmer's wile."
"Bees he think ?"' Barbie hesitated,
!;.ki:ig wi'h smiling perplexity at her little
white hao J-.
"That these pretty hands don't know
rauoh about brewing, baking, etc? Exact
ly, I believe he thinks just that."
"Then he thinks wrong," said Barbie,
reddening and looking up at hc.r lover with
a eo:uic-.l Utile pout. "I)idn't I hear you
vay you needed a servant at home? I've a
win 1 to gi d iwn and offer for the place."
Anson laughed etijoyingly.
"We need one bad enough, but my father
will not sailer one inside the house."
"Why, how do you live, then? Who
coeks for you,now that your mother isiil?"
" Ne do cir own cooking," Anson said,
with a return of the half-smiling, half ciu
btrrissc 1 expression. "We cook for our
selves, or do without."
The very day succeeding the one which
witnessed this conversation, Anson was at
home, busying himself over some culinary
operations, when the outside door, which
stood ajar.was noiselessly pushed wide ojien,
and a singularly attired form presented it
self on the threshold. It was a red and
green plaid dress, the cheeks very large, a
yellow shawl, and a very frowzy and tum
bled white bonnet. A red feather, neatly
a-i long as Anson's arm. streamed :rom one
side, and within the brim flopped the im
mense frill of a cap which clung close around
the face of the stranger. The face, what
couid be seen of it, was a very one to be in
side of such a bonnet and cap. J ust now,
as he surveyed the kitchen and Anson, her
self unseen, the muscles about her mouth
twitched nervously, and her eyes twinkled
with roguish brightness.
Presently Anson looked that way. In
stantly the face took lugubrious length and
coming into the room, the girl said hesitat
ingly, but without looLing at him :
"An' would ye be afther birin' a servant
the day?" and stood fidgeting with the
fringe of her shawl.
"I believe not," said Anson, coloring
with some annoyance, perhaps, at the na
tuie of his employment.
"Shure. sir, an' the lady that sint me,
God bless her swate eyes ! said you'd be
shuce to take me on her rfecoinmendation,
which I have in niy pocket, and here 'tis
She gave him a note which proved to re
from Barbie Halstead. .Anson read it with
very loverlike carefulness, but 6hook bis
"I am very sorry, my good girl, but we
do not wish to hire a servant."
'"Belike you father mayn't object when he
sees me," the girl persisted.
Anson looked at the spoiled white bonnet
and the red feather, and repressed a smile,
wondering what his father would say. But
bis was too kindly a nature to be willing to
expose even this servant to his father' i rough
manner. He repeated what he had said be
fore, assuring her that it would be of uo use
to see his father.
The girl stood a moment. "If ye p1ae,
sir, I'll just see him a moment Belike he
may take a likin' to the look o' me."
And before he could reply she had crossed
the room, and stood upon the threshold of
the next. Anson followed presently,eurious
to see what kind of a reception she would get.
'Shure an" I'll do plenty mor'n I'm worth
to yecs," she was saying with innocent em
phasis, as Anson entered. She talked rap
idly, pouring out such a toyent of words
that the old man could not, by any possibil
ity, slip one in among tbem, and sat regard
ing her with an expression of the niost lu
dicrous astonishment.
Ths remarkable volubility completely baf
fled the old man's slowness. He could not
say a word if he wished to, and when she
concluded at last with. "I can make flap
jacks and corn bread that 'd bring the very
eyes out iv yer head and nuke ye swally yer
'tongue with dolightsomeness," (if he had a
weakness it was for flapjacks and corn bread. )
He could only twirl his thumbs in a sort of
ridiculous awe, and asked her with a sudden
smile how much she expected ' to get for
doing a. 1 those things?"
'"Seventy five cents a week," was the
prompt reply.
With a still more cunning laugh, Joel of
fered her half the money. Greatly to his
amazement she agreed at once ; and lie found
himself, to use his own expression, '"in fur
it." To add to his chagrin, Anson stood
by laughing with intense enjoyment. But
the girl, without further ado, ptoceeded to
disencumber herself ot bonnet and shawl
and vanish in the direction of the kitchen,
before anything could be said. As she shut
the door she stole a glance at Anson that
made him start ami bite his lips, and pres
eutly be stole kitchcnwaids also. She was
already t wfuk. handling the broom like
an adept, and grumbling in her rich brogue
at the dust that had accumulated in the cor
ners; for the extent of Anson's and hisfath
er's sweepings had been to brush the centre
of the room, somewhat to the dUadvan
tage of the rest.
She did not look up as Anson entered, but
he sat dowi and deliberated, and furtively
watched her. For some time the seemed
uncoiiseio.ss of his scrutiny, but presently
she turned and clasping bo !i her little hands
upon the top of the liroom handie, said, with
a mixture ot bravado and archness too nat
ural to be mistaken, "Weii,- Anson, what do
you think '!"
'i'lie you-13 man lanahed and looked an-
i o ye i in tnc same liieatn.
""Then it is you. Barbie?" lie said,
was suspcefintf something of the sort."
""Not till I looked at you." said the
roguishly, ictreatinp as he approached.
!! vrni hint- ii is nniie I he. t hiriL'. Barbie?"
-Shure, an' why ain't it the thing f'-r a t
poor girl to be gcttiu' her liviu' decently an'
honest v f
And that was all he could get out of her.
Having acknowledged her identity with Bar
bie for an instant, she was the most iinap
proaohable Biddy the next, and would have
uothii-g to say, save in that character.
"'Does your father know of this. Barbie?
What would he say?" persevered Anson.
-Shure, an' it's not me own father would
be interlerin' wid me, would he?"
In lain were all remonstrances with the
roguish and willful girl. She persisted in
being Biddy, even to him, and maintained a
distance between him and Barbie in her own
proper self. Annoyed, provoked, chagrined
and almost angry, the advent of his father
lorced him to retire from the kitchen, for
fear of bctmying Barbie's secret, which he
we-uld not have done for a great deal. It
was several hours before he could return to
the houss bis father having, by some pre
text or other, detained him.
When at last they entered togethcr.kitch
en and silting room, both of which bad been
in an untidv state when they left there, had
undergone such a remarkable renovating
precess that old Joel drew back at Srst.think
ing he had set foot in somebody else's house
instead cf his own.. Supper was smoking on
the tatile; such a supper as old Joel. at least,
had not seen in months. To crown all, Mrs.
Shellcubarger was sitting, propped up with
pillows, in a great easy chair, and looking
wondrously contented, and with reason ; the
poor old lady had not had a woman s hand
about her before or since her illness. They
lived in such an isolated, inhospitable man
ner, that very few cf their neighbors even
knew that Mrs. Shellenbarger was not as
wll as usual. Biddy, as she called herself,
had tidied the poor lady up in a beautiful
manner. Joel sat down to the daintily spread
table and made a most hearty and keenly
relished meal, glancing askance at Biddy
meanwhile. Anson, strange to say, ate very
liule, and he watched Biddy askance too.
This was only ihe beginning ot reforais this
daring girl instituted. First, however, as
much for her own peace of mind as Anson's
knowing that mother and son were fast
1j nn.l nlnr.iv nf one ouinion she toid
her secret o Mrs. S., tad fairly wheedled
the .ood ladv into approval. It is true that
she shoot" her head at first, and looked won
derfully shocked. It was so charming to
have those little soft hands fluttering about
her. and to see such brightness and comfort
spring up around, that she could not for her
own sake, help countenancing as much as
silence could, Biddy's mysterious presence.
I haven't time to give particulars.but hav
ing made a good beginnine.with a, good true
Irish facility, Biddy established herself in a
very short time, completely in the good gra
ces of the oid man. He had a lurking like
ness for neatness and good order, and Airs.
S., poor woman, wasn't a very tidy house
keeper. Under the new reign order grew
out of chaos ; the house se med in holiday
garb all the timo, and an atmosphere ot so
cial cheerfulness pervaded everywhere.
Oue morning Biddy said something about
leaving, and the oid man ended a grumbling
vimnlaint of Anson with "I never see no
cood come of eddieation yeL It it hadu't
been for that college business you might
have taken a likin' to a sensible girl and she
one to you.
He' glanced at Biddy as he spoke. She
turned scarlet and came near dropping the
dish she was holding. It was not the first
time Anson had heard such insinuations, and
he rather enjoyed Biddy's trepidation.
"See here, father," he said roguishly,
"just pick me out a wife, and see what will
coma of it." .
"The only girl I know of, worth having,
wouldn't have you, I dare say would you,
Biddy?" Joel said, grumbliugly, but sud
denly turning to the girl,
.Anson was smiling maliciously. Bridget
had kept Barbie's lover at a tantalizing and
unreleuting distance all this time. He was
taking his revenge now. Making a desper
ate effort, Biddy called hen confused senses
to say, with considerable self possession :
"Shure, sir, an' it isn't nieself that'll be af
ter having any man till I'm asked."
"Biddy, will yon marry tne V" said Anson
gravely, extending his hand.
"I will that, now," said Biddy, putting
her hand in his, while old Joel came near
choking with amazement.
It was too late to recede, however, wheth
er he had really withed stfch a thing or not,
as she soon made him understand. He went
out of doors presently, privately pinching
himself to ascertain if he were iu his senses
or not. Seeing the two standinn by the win
dow in close conversation soon after,be crept
with the same laudable intention toward
them, under cover of the bushes that grew
by the houie.
"Mow, Barbie," Anson was saying laugh
ingly, "what is to be done next? I must
say you've managed wonderfully so far, but
what do you suppose he'll say when he finds
you aro not Biddy at all?"
"XotBiddy!atall !" screamed Joel, struck
with a sudden suspicion of he knew uol what
as he started O'lt of his covert.
There stood Biddy, the white frill of her
close cap as immense as ever ; she laughed
when she saw hitn, and deliberately taking
off her cap, she shook her bright curls ail
about her face, and reaching toward him her
little hand, said : "Shure, sir, an' ye won't
be afte blaming a poor girl because her
name is Barbie ilal.Uead instead of Biddy
"Von you Professor ITalstcad's girl?"
"l'rofessor Halstead is my father," said
Barbie in her natural tone.
"What's that?"
Baibie repeated it.
'"And you're not Irish?"
"Niver a bit !''
The old man stood a moment.clou Js gath
ering in his face. "Well, Anson," he said
rather saucily, "you've out-witted me again ;
much good may it do you. You'd better
get out the horses now, and take llalstead's
girl home. He must want to see her by
this time.'
"Yes, sir.1' And Anson colored with
mingled anger and amazement.
Baibie did not change countenance, how
ever, but exceeding that pretty hand of hers
again, she said sweetly," You'!! shake hands
with me, sir, won't you?"
Joe! turned back and gave his band awk
wardly. The girl took it in both hers, bent
her bright face toward hitn and said, "I
shall come back sometime, air, will you be
glad to see me?"
Joel bummed and hawed, and stammered
out at last, "ycc-yea; come trick, Biddy I
mean Mi.-s O'l lynn I mean Miss "
"Barbie," suggested the girl, quietly.
"Y ;s. come back, and t he sooner the bet
ter. There. Anson, make the most on't !"
Barbie did come back, in averv few weeks,
too. and nobodv was gladder to see her than
old Joel, tboneh he was a little shy at first
of Professor llalstead's zirl. She soon made
