easy about Jane " .. reeman's visitor, the
pretty girl from Hillsdale, but she
thought if she could sco Aleck and
Mary Lang together,' She would know
in just what qu'hrter the wind was

morning the fragrance and the rosy
bloom and the hum of insects among
the thick heads - brought him adifferent
kind of-pleasure. ,
With.the long sight, of age he could
see the cows; grazing in the hack pas
ture, 'and he thonght 'of the "cattle on - a
thousand hills," and whose they are.
His gaze wandered back• lovingly even
to the , old stone
. Niralle with mulleins
growing beside them, and the shadows
of birds flitting over them, and every
thing seemed good, even the Mayweed
and daisies 'and. Canada , thistles that
farmers 'hate by: , instinct. He felt a
gush of childlike thankfulness, because
"the earth is the Lord's, and the fillness
thereof." •
Presently the - IJ,eadon and Charley

Aleck, had Come pp liora the - garden,
abd i :was ienning on e his hoe handle,
talking to them.. He was a muscular,
well-made young fellow ; and the fact
that ha had once passed three years in
a city, and-had rubbed off his rustic
bashfulness, told upon' him well. Now
therewas a haltlquizzical, half-pleased
look peeping from - under his drooped
eyelids; and old Mrs. Freeman, Sitting
on theback porch, with her glasses in
the fold of a magazine, and the toe of
one of her husband's socks covering her
knobby finger-ends, glanced at the
group,. , and thought ',to. 'herself that
Mary Lang, with her finery; wouldn't
be sorry' to catch :Aleck., Their • the
memory of Hannah Ashley camp with
a little twinge of anxiety; for 'Hannah
was her prime favorite; and, after the
manner of substantial matrons, she de
sired her boy, teMarry a practical 'wife,
"who knew how to Cook his dinner and
make him comfortable. The sight of
Mary Laug's white nerveleSs hands,
with their pretty rings, caused the old
lady .to shake her, head, and muster
soMething about dolls and - poppets."
Andy had. Come home from school, and
had let the low-spirited dog out•into the
yard to bark at the hens a little while
by the way of Whblesowe recreation.
He was preparing to go down to' his
squirrel-trap in the woods ; and as be
sat fussing away and whistling .on the
porch step, suddenly he pulled a paper
out of his. jacket pocket, and scampered
with it to' the window. •
• " Here's. something Deacon Ashley
tole: me fo give you, his. He called it,
a billy." -
" You mean a Willian," put in Alary
chucking him under the chin.

would' be sure to invite us to her quilt
ing," said. Jane in a disappointed tone.
"Say, Aleck, have you and Han been
wiarreling?" and sbe gave him a pro
voking- little thrust, such as sisters are
wonted to administer..
Aleck turped round, and set his el
bows r.4quarlcy against the window-sill,
and began to whistle low to-himself.
" Let's take that ride over Saddle
back Hill. I promised to give, you to
,afternoon, Mary,"
,said he,
vecring "lack again and chewing an
end of oTris.,
Miss Lang expressed herself delighted
to take the 'ride ; and' everybody ap
pearl] satisfied but .Tanci who would
now have no opportunity' to display the
new twist to the 'girls before Sunday.
Hannah's quilt had been pnt on the
frames the day before, up• in ' the , , same
chamber---a large apartment with a car
petin Venetian stripe, a high-post bed
stead draped in the whitest dimity, a
heavy.mahogany bureau with respec4
able brass knobs and an old-fashioned
glass adorned with . ,festoons of pink 'and.
white paper. „Therc were faded foot
stools, wdrked by Mrs. Ashley
.when a
girl, in chain-stitch embroidery; and
framed sato piers, and silhouetce portraits
uporl the wall of n sappy old lady
. and
spare old gentleman ; and matronly
bunches of life-everlasting and eryStal
izied grasses filling the plethoric vases
upon the mantle-piece. EVerything
was in apple-pie order, frotn kitchen to
parlor. A pleasant moist odor of Han
nah's sponge•cake clung to the walls;
and if you don't know what 'Hannah's
spong-cake was like, It is useless for me
to - describe it.'
'Hannah_liad put on her prettiest lawn'
dress—a pule green that become' her
blonde beauty, and touched it up here
and there with a bit of pink ribbon.
Mrs Ashley was pinning on her false
puffs before the glass, and fastening her
collar with a brooch-adorn:o with a
daguerreotype likeness of thiY Deacon,
which looked as If it had beep taken in'
a particularly bad,fitordpoPsia. She
dearly loved young company ; and there
,was a bright twinkle in her eye ; and a
pucker,abouther, month plovocative of
jokes. .
When the girls had assembled, and
the;kissing and taking off of things were
well through with, tile grand business
of the afternoon began. Everybody
praised Hannah's pretty quilt—pink
.stars dropped on white grolind. Miss
'l'readwell was champion qtillter. shd,
understood all the mysteries Of herrin'.',
bone and feather patterns; and, with a
chalk line in her hand, as the Deacon's
wife expressed it, "rooted the roost."—
Miss Treadwell was a thin faced precise
old maid, with a kind of withered
bloom on her cheek-bones, and a lauda
ble desire to make the most of her few
1 skimpy locks.
1 "Beats all how young Salina Tread
well appears," whispered the Deacon's
wife to her next neighbor. "She's as
old as I be, if she's a day, and here she
roe; diddling 'round with the girls."
1 - - "Bannah, you ought to , give this quilt
to the one that gets married firgl,".put
in Susan Drake,' threading her iqeedle.
" I know who that Will be," said.
firs A'shley, winking hard toward Het
.Bprague a pretty, soft-headed little
.with cheeks of the, damask
rase and dewy dark eyes. • : • •- •

" You an old maid !" cried : merry
little IS - Ailey; Dufry:, "That's a 'likely
story. I guess Aleck will 'have a - word
or two to say about it." •
• " Itlooks as if Aleck had-got. a new
string ,to his bow," remarked' MiSS,
Treadwell, 'w.lio• knew.= how.' to..give a
,Sharp little thrust her, own s : 1" He

window, t upsetting one end of

nut mare trOt . past,'With Aleck' hiCaself
so absorbed in the 4OrnPrinio,n by his
Side, that he'did hot appear to inark the
battery of hfight eyes under 'which he
was passing. -
Hannah colored colored and bit her , lips, taut
she recovered herself with alight laugh.
" Never mind, girls," (said she, "there
are as good fish in the sea as have ever
been caught. :,I'll show you Dr. Binge
ham to-night, and you* all say he ls•
pe i rfcctly splendid." ' - •
Then began a little mild gosllp, over
the Doctor, as to who he was, and what
had brought him to outrof-the-way lit
tle Drastic—for the young man Was only
, a visitor in the neighborhood; and in
the clatter Of tongues, before the second
rolling, Hannah had'slipped out to get
tea. At first she did a' very curious
thing for a sensible 'young woman to
do.; mho , got behind the buttery door
and bid her face in the roller-towel,
and 'something like a very genuine sob
Shook her bosom, • while some 'bitter
tears were absorbed into the crash. The
truth Is, Hannah was . jealous. The
sight of Aleck devoting himself to that
girl from Hillsdale, whom she had be
gun to detest, woke her pp to the state
of 'her own feelings; and perhaps noth
ing'iit that would ever - have 4one the
Nevertheless, there was the sponge
cake to cut, and doyleys to be
got out,,and the ivory . handled knives
to be taken down from the top shelf of
the elo'set. She had to calculate how
much '.l the strawberry preserves it
would take to go round and., not. look
eltrimpy, and who
; should sft 'by the
glass dish, andmany custard cups
would be requird' to till the middle of
•the table. All these Pilings Hannah
performed with as much accuracy as if
her ; heart had not been smarting with
disappointment and vexation.
Mrs. Ashley was never more in her
element than when she presided at a
feminine tea party.
" We won't have any of the men
folks round tobother, girls," said she,.
they settled like flock of doves
at Ct rsli o
temptingly spread: ".It's busy. times
on the farm now, and the De;)eoii likes

so Lteld him hit and the boys might

through the room.

" But you cannot refuse my company

whether or no; " for. I have brought an
apology from Bingham. lam going to
tell you, as a great seeret," (Meek went
on, confidentially, while. Hannah kept
still from, sheer astonishment,) "that
the docto4 and that forty-'leventh cous

but there's a ,jealous streak in him. He
wanted to keep a loose foot, and wasn't
willing Mary should do the same. She's
an uncommonly pretty, lively girl"—
(a sharp twinge in garinah'E.left side)
—" and, of course, she wasn't going to
be cooped up, and the result was, they
quarrelled. But they did really care
for each other, and novi the thing is
made up, and I guess they have found
out what a sneaking, unrighteons thing!
jealousy is."
There might be cause for it,"
turned Hannah, faintly, as she felt
spirit oozing: away.
" Como 'IOW; Hannah; 'you mean to
hit me, and I might hit back again, but
I won't ; for T haven't loved 'anybody

unlearn it."

to njy qUilting party ?"—spbten, in a
shaky. voice, and showing the white
feather, badly--" and why did you 'go
gallivanting off with that girl?"

liked her."

- I am afraid Meek Vll5 saucy, for
when Hannah got into the house, there
was something very sweet and delicious
tinglingb upon her lips. - She crept into
the sitting room, where she could bear
the good old 'deacon calmly, snoring,
and slipped the little note out of the
breast pocket of his coat. 'l'
