"He's been gettin' out muck earlier than usual, and spreadin* it on tho ridgo of tho posture. The sun's bwn pretty hot, though it is October, ami tho hot sun on that sort of stuff always breeds malaria." "I wasn't talkin' of sickness,. Raid tho wife. "Tho dear boy's health is as good as ever. It's his mind that's out o' sorts." "A long, soft sigh was tho farmer's only reply for a moment. It was followed by the .remark: "That city gal, I s'poso—rConfoundherS" "I don't seo what you want her confounded for; she hasn't done anythin'. They don'! correspond." "I should hope not," said Hayn, with con siilorablo vigor. Ho now was wiilo awake,. "What could they write about? You don't B'poso Phil could write anythiu' about oui goin's-on that would interest her, do you?" "No, but young people, sometimes do find somcthin' to exchange, letters about. You and I didn't when wo. were boy and girl, be causo we lived within a stono's throw of each other, an' 3*011 couldn't keep away from oui house after dark; but Philip and" "For goodness sako, old lady," interrupted tho husband, don't you go to settin" yoursoll down at your time of lifo by gottin' the match makin' fever. Thoro Isn't tho slight csfc chance that' 1: "I didn't say thero was; but boys will be boys." "It doesn't follow that they should bo fools, does it—not when they're our boys?" " 'Tisii't bein' a fool to bo interested in n rich man's ilaiigli|-«r. I've oftca t!:u;:g!.l !iu«. different your life might have been if I'd hud anything besides myself to give you when you married me." "I got all I expectedj and n thousand times more than I desorvwl." This assertion war followed by a kiss, which, though delivered in tho dark, was of absolutely accurate aim. "Don't put it into Phil's head that ho can get more than a wife, when ho marries, 'twill do him a great deal more harm than good." "I'd liko to see tho dear boy so fixed thai ho won't havo to work so hard as you've had to do." , "Then you'll see him less of a man than his- father, when ho ought to bo bettor. Isn't that rather poor business for a mother in Israel to bo in, old lady!" "Well, anyhow, I believe Phil's heart is scl on makin' a trip down to York." "Oh, is that all!__WeU 1 _he's_been promised It, for, some day, ( this long while. Something's always prevented it, but I s'poso now would boras good a timo as any. Ho deserves it; he's as good a sou as man over had." Mrs. Hayn probably agreed with her bus band as to the goodness of their son, but that was not tho view of him in which sho was Interested just then. Said she: • "If ho goes, of courso ho'll seo hor." Again tho farmer sighed; then ho said, quite earnestly: "Let him seo her, then; tho sooner ho doo> tt tho sooner ho'll stop thiukm' about her Bless your dear foolish old heart, her wayt- and his are as far apart as llayntou and heaven when there's a spiritual drought in this portion of the Lord's vineyard." "I, don't think tho Tramlays are so much better than we, if they have got money,' 1 said Mrs. Hayn, with somo indignation. "1 always did say that you didn't bet enough store by yourself. Mrs. Tranilay is a nice enough woman, but 1 never could seo how she was any smarter than I; and us to her husband, I always noticed that you generally held your own when the two of you wero talking about anything.'. 1 • ' "Bless you I" exclaimed tho farmer, "you are rather proud of your old husband, aren't' you? But Phil will soon see, with half on eye, that it would be tho silliest thing in tho world for him to falHu love with a girl like that" "I can't for tho life of me seo why," said the mother. "He's just as good as she, and a good deal smarter, or. I'm no judge." "Seo here, I/ju Ann,"said tho farmer, with more than a hint of impatience in his voice, "you know, 'twou't do either of.'cin uuy good to feJl in love if they can't marry ouch other. An' what would Phil have to support his wife on? 'Would she como out herean' 'tond to all tho hou*o work of the l.d'ui, li!:o }*ou do, jusi for thosnkoof havin' 1'iiil for.a linshamU Kol unless sho's a fool, even if 1'hil is our boy uif about as good as they iiuiko Vm. An" you know well enough that liu couldn't afford to live in Now York; he's got nothin' to do it on." i "Not now, but he Ti^fl^ go in business there, and make enou^a to live in stylo. Other young fellow* him- .".uno itl" "Yes—in BtoricK," said tlm old inan. "Lou Ann, don't you kind '<>' think that, for a church member of thirty years' staudin* you're gettin' mighty worldly minded f" "No, I don't," Mrs. •Hutu answered. "If not to want my Ixiy to drudge away hie life liko his father's done hr belli' worldly, then I'm goiu' to bo a backslider and stay one. I don't think twould bo a bit bad to have a married son down to York, so's his old mother could have some place to go once ill a while when she's tired to death of work an' worry." "Oho!" said the old man; "that's the point of it, eh f Well, I don't m(nd bockslidin' enough to say tho boy may marry one of Baton's daughters, if it'll make lifo any easier for you, old lady." "Much obliged," tho mother replied, "but I don't know as I care to do visitln 1 down thero." The conversation soon subsided, husband and wife dropping- into-revery from-whicb- they dropped into slumber. In ona way or other, however, the subject came up again. Said Mrs. Ilayn one day, just as her husband was leaving the dinner table for thq field in which he was cutting and stacking corn: "I do believe Phil's best coat is finer stuff -than anything Mr. Tranilay wore when they^ wore up here. I don't believe what he wortT Sundays could hold a candle to Phil's." "Like enough," said tho farmer; "and yet the old man always looked better dressed. I think his clothes mode him look a little younger than Phil, too," "Now, husband, you know it fau't fair to make fun of the dear boy's clothes in that way. You know well enough that tho stuff for his coat, was cut from the same bolt of broadi'loth aa tho minister's best," "Yus," druwlixl the farmer through half a doxeu liillet'tions, any one of whioh would h&ve driven frantic any woman but his own wife. "It's rial mean in you to say 'Yes' iii that way, Roubwnl" " Tkai't the wearer that ui&koa the nuui. oldhuiy; it 1 * th*J tailor."

"I never thought of it, before, but of courso fho does. I don't believe anybody elsn could do it in that way. Yet tho ministor ain't got si3 bad a fl^uro, when you poo him workin' in his gnrden in his Rbirt slrevrs," — "It's time for you to go back to tho corn- Geld," FUffgostwl Mrs. Hayn. "Yes, I reckon 'tis," said tho farmer, cortws- ing what might havo Ixwi nap not his old hat, boon of felt. " 'Tain't nafo for an old farmer to bo givin' his timo nn' thought to pomps an' vanities—like tho minister's broadcloth coat" "Got out!" oiclaimod Mrs. Hayn, with a threatening gesture. Tho old man kissed her, laughed and bo^an to obey her command; but as, liko countrymen in general, ho made his exit by tho longest possible route, wandering through the sitting room, the ball, the dining room and tho kitchen, his wife had time to waylay him at the door step find remark: "I waa only goin 1 to say that if Phil does make that trip to York I don't seo that bo'll need to buy now clothes. He's never wore that Sunday coat on other days, except to two or three funerals an' parties. I was goin' It over this very mornin', an' It's about as good as new." "I wondor how this family would over have got along If I hadn't got such a care- takin' wife?" said tho old man. "It's tho best coat iu tho United States if jou'vo been goin' it over." Phil was already in tho corn—ho had left the table some minutes before his father— and as the old man npproachod Phil said: "Father, don't you think that wind break for the sheep needs patching this foll? : ' - "It generally doos, my son, before cold weather sots In." "I guess I'll get at it, then, as soon as we got tho corn stacked." "What's tho hurry. Tho middle of No- vembor is early enough for that." "Oh, when it's done it'll bo off our minds." "Seo here, old boy," said tho father, dropping the old ship's cutlass, with which ho had begun to cut tho corn stalks, "you're doin* all your work a mouth ahead this fall. What are you goin' to do with all your timo when there's no more work to bo done!" "I can't say, I'm sure," said Phil, piling an armful of stalks against a stock with more than ordinary care. "Can't oh? Then I'll havo to, I s'posa, Boein' I'm your father. I guess I'll havo to Bend you down to New York for a month, to look aroun' an' soo somcthin' of tho world." I'hil turned so quickly that lie ruined all his elaborate work of tho moment before, almost burying his father under tho toppling stack. "That went to tho spot, didn't It)" said tho old man. "I mean the proposition—not the fodder," he continued, as he extricated himself from tho moss of cornstalks. "It's exactly what I've been wanting to do," said Phil, "but" "But you didn't liko to say so, eh? Well, twasn't necessary to mention It; ns I told you t'other day, I can see through tho-back of your head any timo, old boy." " 'Twouldn't cost much money, 1 said Phil. "I could go down on Sol Mantring's sloop for nothing, sumo timo when he's short handed." "Guess I con afford to pay my oldest sou's travo^in' expenses when I send him out to BOO tho world. You'll go down to York by railroad, an' in the best car, too, if there's any difference,," '_ : "I won't have to buy clothes, anyhow, 1 ' sold the younger man. "Yes, you will—lota of 'em. York ain't Haynton, old boy; an* as tho Yorkers don't know enough to take their style from you, you'll have to take yours from them. I was there once, when I was 'long about your ago. I didn't have to buy no more meotin' clothes after that until I got married—nigh on to ton years." "If it's as expensive as that, I'm not going," sold Phil, looking very solemn and beginning to reconstruct the demolished stack. "Yes, you are, sir. I'll have you understand you're not much over ago yet, an' v havo got to mind your old father. Now, let that corn alone. If it won't stay tlown, sit on it —this way—see." And, suiting tho action to tho word, thu old man surnwlcd at ease, on tho fallen fodder, dragged his son down after him and said: "You -shall havo a hundred dollars to start with, an! more afterward, if you need it, as i know you will. The first thing to do when you get to tho city is to go to tho best looking clothing store you can find, aud buy a suit Biicli as you see well dressed men wearing to business. Keep your eyes open on men as sharply as If they wero houses and clothes vere their only points, and then see that you get as good clothes as any of them. It don't matter so much about the stuff; but have your clothes fit you, nu 1 cut liko other people's." "I don't want to put on city airs/' said Phil. "That's right—that's right; but city clothes ind city airs aren't any nioro alik6 than country airs an" good manners. You may be tho Bmnrtestrbrightest" young fellow that jver went to York—as of courso you are, boin' my son—but folks at York'll never find it out If you don't dress properly—that means, dress ns they do. I'll trade watches with you, to trade back after the trip; mine is gold, you know. You'll have to buy a decent chain, though." "I won't take your watch, father. I can't; that's nil about it." "Nonsense! of course you can If you try. It isn't good manners to wear silver watches in tho city." "But your watch"— Phil could get no further; for his father's gold watch was venerated by tho family as if It wore a Mayflower chair or the musket of a soldier of tho Revolution. Once while old former Hayn was young Capt. Hayn, of the whaling ship Lou Ann, lie saved tho crew of a sinking British Iwirk. Unlike modern ship captains (who do not own their vessels), he wo went in the boat with the rescuing party instead of merely sending It out, and he suffered so much through exposure, strain and the fear of tho death which seemed impending that ho abandoned the sea as soon thereafter as possible. Nevertheless he thought only of the work twforo him until ho had rescued tho Imperiled.crew and stowed them safely in his own ship. The circumstances of the rescue were so unusual that they formed the subject of long columns iu foreign newspapers; and in a few mouths Capt Hayn received through tho state department at Washington a gold wateh,—witli—sundry-compliineutary—papers from the British admiralty. Tho young seaman never talked of either; his neighbors first learned of tho presentation by conning their favorite weekly newspapers; nevertheless the papers were framed and hung iu tho young captain's bedchamber, and, however carelessly ho dressed afterward, nobody ever saw him when ho bod not the watch in his pocket n "Father," said Phil, after some moments spent In silence and facial contortion, "I eau't take your watch, eveu for a little while. You've always worn it; it's your—tho family's—patent of nobility." "Well," said the old former, after contemplating tho toes of his boots a few seconds, "1 don't mind ownin' up to my oldest sou that I look at.the old watoh in about the samo light; (jut a patent of nobility U a disgrace to a family if the owner's heir isnt fit to inherit it.
