'He is a pleasant spoken man, and always has

seems to, be, e nice neighborly 'body, too.'—
Reuben made no answer ; but I after metlita
tingti while, he remarked, ' Peg, you know
that big ripe melon down at the bottom of thel
_arden ? you may pis Well carry* over there
in the morning.' • His wife said she would,
without asking ; bin] to explain where ' over I
there' was.
But when the morning came Reuben walk- ,
ed hack and forth and round and round, with
that sort of aimless activity, often manifested 1
by hens, and fashionable idlers, 'who feel rest-
less, and don't know what to rim after. At
length,the cause of his uncertain movements was
explained, by his saying, in the form of a qiiFs-
tion, ',I guess I may as well carry the meion I
myself, and.thank ham for his oxen ? In my 1
flurry down thereim the 'marsh, I didn' think
to say I was obliged to him.' 1
He marched off towiard the gaiden, and his
wife stood at the door, with one hand on her
hip, and the other abiding the sun from her
eyes, to sea if he would really carry the melon'
into Simeon Green's house. It was the most
remarkable incident that had happened since
her marriage. She could hardly believe her'
own eyes.. He walked quick, as if afraid he
should not be able to- carry the usual impulse
into action if be stopped to consider the ques
tion. When he found himself in Mr. Green's
house, be felt extremely awkward, and hastlin
ed to say, ' Mrs. Green, here is i a melonmy
wife sent you, and we reckon Wei a . ripe one.
Without manifesting any surprise at such Un
expected courtesy, the friendly matron thank
edl him, and invited him to sit down. But he
stood playing' with the latch of the door, nd
without raising his eyes said, 4 May be Mr.

suddenly, as if by? a deSperate effort, . The f. ct

by experience that if we speak kind words, we'
hear kind echoes. •If we try to make others
