Indian Corners iies in a state of wdd ei
eitemimt when . - Gertrude Graham married
Peter Pillsbury.' Do not think too badly of
3e:trade Graham when I tell you that she
married against her mother's will.
Whoever poor Gertrude had married, from
the lowest to the highest in the land, ycsmg
or old, rich or poor; Mrs. Graham would
have found some reason for beitig furiously
set against the match. She was* thin, ye/
lo* woman, with a sharp, -red' nose, that
always looked Cold. Her nOrtitil expression:
* * as one of iudignation, which she sometime*:
exchanged for one of despairing melancholy. ,
She felt ' injured by Gertrude's protracted,
spinsterhood, but refused her- consent to,
every offer the poor girl' seemed.. likely to
have, even befdre it was made. On his 8 ,4 0.

The young apothecary; who was just
twenty, and had a salary of five dollars a
week, hurried his' adored one, away, , and
wrote a poem for the Rural Adviser, entitled
. "The Mother's Curse," the next week. The
poem, appeared; but the " Adviser . " did not
'pay? , for contributions, and it added nothing
to the weekly income.
Perhaps Mr. Pillsbury had hoped that,his
mother-in-la4v would relent toward her only
daughter, but if so he was mistaken ;
frame of mind remained the same. , •She
lock4up her memory with a morel &ter.

frightened young Pillsbury out of *am

these glances and the impending Anatheme
frightened the poor Pillskrarys awar from
the little town—though there wart a *pert
that Pillsbury had had an offer of atefen ! .
