Mr. Warren was in appearance, a fee ble woman, bul she had endured hard ship which would have destroyed the constitution of one much more robust. Day after day her site ngth fsiled her, yet she made no complaint. Raymond saw Ih it she grew pale, and was olten disturb ed with fears in regard lo her, bul he was too easy 10 mention the subject, and the useful wife became more and more feeble, until she wss seized with a violent cough. Raymond was one day thoughtful enough ti speak to the vtllagn doctor as he pis cd their house with his ponderous medi- to eat in this house till wood to cook it with." There's plenty of chip,' said Ray motid, in palliation, rising on his elbows as he spoke. Get nn, then, and bring ihetn into (he house," said ihe resolute wife. 1 didn't know vou when we were married, but I know you now. I know what killed your first wife. You wsnt la make a slave of me. Ill sttend 10 my duties ; but if you don't do your chores, the cat tle may starve, and you il never get a bite to eat in this house unless you lake it un the rover of auother dih ; there were po. laloes jtist as they .had been dug from the earth, All the dishes hat usually contained vicinal were covered.

There were lea -leave, filiating in the cup, bul the tea looked remarkably fiale neveitheless, Raymond by force of . labil, blew vigorously lo prepare H for his palate. Hut whesj he put il lo his lips, he found that he had wasted his breath ( for the water was a cold as When 11 came uura 111c spring, , , , - . Raymond waa note nasty man, tie pushed back his chair deliberately, and thought aloud ; ' . . . , " "In the name of Heaven, what does . this mean ? '' ' Mrs. Warren, who, countenance da ting this scene had worn a sober afpeet, now smiled pleasantly, and answered : The Yirtuals were all on the stove the nal lime." It's strange they were nol cooked," said Raymond, ' , Not at all," replied Mr. Wsrren i there was no wood to cook them with." In an instant Easy Warren then raw hat a moral there was in hi. novel dinner, and, with a keen appetite, he wen 10 work en the wood pile, tie took bis dinner and supper together that day, and he remembered that Mrs. Warren said) Now, Raymond, whenever yon leave me without wood, you must eat victuals that baa been cooked nn a cold stov e." Many women would have stormed and scolded, but Mrs. Warren knew there wss a better wsy 10 correct her easy husband's carelessness,' or shifitetness, as the reader pleases. ' One day, there wa no flour in the hotisc, and Raymond wss abonl to fro Willi soma neighbor to a town meeting, when his wife hid his best coat and reminded him of Ihe empty ur-barret. Another day, his corn wss to be gather ed, when a neighbor desired him to assist him with his horses and waggon. It waa a neighbor who often received favor, hut seldom rendered them; yet Easy Warren could nol refuse him.. Bul when he went to hitch hi. horse, before his . wagon, he found that one of the wheels was missing. Of eetirse, the neighbor was disappointed. lit the afternoon, when Raymond expressed a wish to draw bis corn, his wife told him where he could find ihe lost wsgon-wheel.
