A LOVE STORY OP MODERN DAYS ; CTIAPTEB jon. Early best moiling'Brldf&t, Monica's maid, ontjnrs Kit's rbo&i In a somewhat mysterious fiAIilon. Gnjnclnjf all round the room furtively, a> though expecting an enemy lylng-hl ainbusll,behind every chair and table, she gays, In »low, cautious tone,—' "A lettfer for you, mlw." • As slio says this, »lie draws a note from beneath her apron, where. In her right hnnd, it has been carefully hidden,—so uarofully, Indeed, that she could not hnvo failed to create suspicion In the breast of a bubo. "For me I" says Kit, off tier guard for onea "Yes, miss." "Who brought It?" "A bit of a gossoon, miss, out there In the yard beyant An' he wouldn't give mo his name; but sure I know film well for a boy of the Maddens', an' one of the Coolo people. HU father, an' bis gran'father before him, wen laborers with the ould Squire." "Ah, Indeed 1" says Kit By this tl me she has recovered her surprise and her composure. 'Thank you, Bridget," she says, with S uite a grandiloquent air; "put It there, on lat table. It la of no consequence, I dare say; you can go." Bridget—who, llko all her countrywomen, dearly likes a lore-affair, and Is quite aware of young Mr. Desmond's passion for her mistress—Is disappointed. "The gossoon said he was to wait for an answer, miss," she says, Insinuatingly. "An* falx," waxing confidential, "I think I caught sight of the coat-tails of Mlsther Desmond's man outside the ynrd gate." "You should never think on such occasions, Bridget; and coat-tails aro decidedly low," says the youngor Miss Beresford, with scathing reproof. "They weren't very low, miss. lie wore one o* them rut-away coats," says Bridget, In an Injured tone. "You fail to grasp my meaning," Bays Kit, gravely. "However, let It pass. If this note requires an answer, you can wait In the next room until I write it." Then she tears open the envelope, and reads as follows:— "D EAR L ITTI.K K IT,- Owing yon all the love and allegiance In the world for having helped me once, I come to you again. How am I to pass this lone day without a glimpse of litrf It Is a lovesick swain who doth en treat your mercy. Does any happy thought run through your pretty head? If so, my man Is waiting forlt somewhere; befriend mu a second time. "Ever yours, "B HIAM." Prompt action Is u the breath of her nostrils to Kit Drawing pen and Ink toward her. without a moment's hesitation, she scrlpbles an answer to Desmond :— sire golne toward Ballyvoureen this afternoon, to take a pudding to old illddy Daly: any one chancing to walk there also might meet us. Count upon mo R ' W J^ „ This Macchlavelltan epistle, which sh* fondly believes to be without Its equal jn the matter of depth, sho folds curefullv, and, Inclosing it In an envelope void address or anything (mark the astuteness of Uuitl), calls to Bridget to return to her. "You wilt And the boy you mentioned as being by birth a Madden," sho says, nustoro- ly, "and give him this; and you will refrain from gossiping and Idle talking with him. Which is not convenient." •never mind; 1 dare say If I do drop in a deadly swoon, somebody will pick me up," "My dear Kit, If you feel like that, don't go," says Monica, naturally alarmed. . 'Ilmve promised old Mrs. Daly; I must' go," replies Kit, with the determination of a Brutus. "If I am not back In time for 'dinner, yon will understand what has happened." . ,j. This is nwfhl t Monica turns nulte.pale. "Of course I shall go with you," she says, hurriedly. "Is your head so very bad, dar- llng? How ihravcly you carried It off'In there I" pointing toward the morning-room they have Just left "However, It would be only like yon to hide your worries from us, lest they should make us unhappy." At this, It must ba allowed to her credit, Kit feels some strong twinges ef remorse,— not enough, however, to compel confession. "It Is hardly worth talking about," she says alluding to the headache; aud this, at all event*, Is the strict truth. It would bo Impossible to describe the tone In which she uuys this. Bridget, much disgusted, lakes the nolo silently, nnd with Bufllclcnt norvousness lo make Itself known Indeed, she Is so plainly Impressed by Kit's eloquence that tlui latter'a heart slugs aloud for Joy. "Yes, miss," she says, In a very subdued voice, and goes away with indignant haste, to tell cook, as she pa ;ses through the kitchen, that "Falx, Miss Kit might bo her own gran'mother,—she Is so ould an' quaro In her ways." Kit meantimo goes In search of Monica, with a mind stored with crafty arguments for the beguiling of that unconscious maid en. Hearing voices lit the morning -room, (ho turns In there, and linds the whole family In conclave. Miss I 'rlscllla is speaking. "Yes, I certainly think hospitality of some sort should be shown them," sho Is saying, With quite an exoited flush on lior dear old ugly face. "We cannot, of course, do much, but afternoon tea, now, aud some pleasant people to meet them,—and strawberries,— and a little stroll round tlio gardens— eh? And, Penelope, you used to bo a great hnnd at claret-cup In our dear father's time; and then there Is tennis. I really think, you know, It might bo done." "Is there going to bo a party here. Aunt Prlscllla?" asks Kit, with enlarged eyes, "Well, my dear, we are debating the possibilities of it,— Just the pros and cons," says Miss Prlscllla, precisely. "Your aunt Penelope agrees with me that some attention is due to those young men In Olonbree Barracks." "You are going to ask Captain Cobbett and Mr. Rydehetel Oh, what funt" cries Kit, seating herself, minus Invitation, on Mias Prlscllla's knee, and twining her arms round her neck. "Do you know, whon with mother we didn't dare call our souls our ' own: but with you we aro having real good old times I Aren't we, now?" "Oh, Kit I—my dear Kit 1— you must not speak to of your lost mother," cry the old ladles In a breath, both greatly distressed. ' "Well,! shaWlf you don't wish it; but It is true, for all that When Is it to be, aVuntPriB?'' " "Next week, I suppose," says Miss Penelope, promptly, seolug that Miss Prlscllla U still too agitated to reply. "And I think, perhaps, It would be rather nice to have tea In the orchard." "Oh I how quite too lovely I" says Kit, clasping her hands. "Quite too utterly,consummateIy,precIoas* ly Intense?" mutters Terence, lotto twos, regarding Kit sideways, who returns his rapturous glance with one full of Ineffable disdain. "I hope Miohael won't object," saya Miss Penelope, nervously. Michael Is the gardener, and they aro all, without exception, afraid of him. "Nonsense, my doarl why should he?" says Miss Prlsollla. "It isn't because he has been here for years that he Is to forbid us the use of our grounds, and of late 1 con aider there Is great fault. to be fsund with him. Long service should not generate neglect, and of late there has not been a good lettuce or respectable dish of asparagus la the garden." "There wasn't even any thyme last week,' 1 ssys Kit, who maintains an undying feud with Michael. "He had to get some fresh, plants from Cahlrmore." ,' "Time was made for slaves," says Terence,; meditatively. "Vou aren't a slave, are you?" "I should hope not," saya Kit, lolly, if:.'

The road to Mrs. Daly's Is full of beauty. On one side of it runs Coolo, its trees rich with leafy branches; upon the other stretches common, green and soft with a grand glimpse of the ocean far down below it Why walk on the dusty road, when those fields are geen In there?" says Kit, pointing to Coole; and, after a faint hesitation, Monica follows her over the wall and Into ths dork recesses of the woods. The gross is knee-deep In ferns and trailing verdure; great clumps of honeysuckle, falling from giant limbs of elm, mnko the air sweet Some little way to their right—but where they cannot see because of the prodigality of moss and alder and bracken—a little hidden brook runs merrily, making "Btvont music with th' onamel'd (tones. Qlrlnir n gentlo kins to every ecduo Uu ovortaketh In his pilgrimage." Some thought belonging to the past night coming to Kit, she turns to Monica with a little laugh. "How silent you have been about last night's adventurol" she says. "I watched you from your own window until tho shad' ows caught you. You looked like a flitting spirit,—a—a bhoot." 'A bootl" says Monica, very justly surprised. "Yes," loftily. Kit's educational course, as directed by herself, has been of tho or ratlc order, and has embraced many topics unknown to Monica. From the political economy of Faroe Isles, it has reached even to tho hidden mysteries of Hindostan. "I must liavo struck you then as being in my liveliest mood," says Monica, still laugh Ing. "Terry told us yesterday he was as gay as old boots. As I looked llko one, ~ suppose I was at least half as gay as he wn.i. After all, there Is nothing like leather, no matter how ancient." There 's an h In my bhoot," says Kit, with some disgust "Really, the ignorance of some people—even the nicest—la surprising." "Then why don't you take it out?" says Monica, frivolously. "Not that I know in the very least what harm a poor Innocent letter could do there." "You don't understand," s»ys-Kit, pitifully. "Idon't, Indeed," saysMonleo, unabashed. "A bhoot Is an Indian ghost" "And so you thought I looked like an Indian ghost! will a turban 1 and an Afghan and a scimiter 1 Oh, Kit I Did I really look like tho mahogany table beneath the sllvor moonbeams? and did my eyes glitter! 1 " What a goose you are 1" Bays Kit, roaring with laughter. "No, you looked lovely but I was reading an Indian story yesterday, and It came Into my head." "You read too much," says Monica. 'Much learning will mako you mad,' If you don' tuku care. Remember wliut Lord Bacon says, 'Reading maketh a full man.' How would yon like to to a full woman,—llko Mailumo O'Connor, for example?' 'Francis Bacon never mount It In that sense," says Kit, Indignantly. "I really wonder at yon, Monica." And, having so scolded hoi- Idol, she rolnpjcd Into Bllonce tor a comUleri.blo time. 'Oh! wIin:lov>ily doi - -rcse3j" snys Monica, presently, pointing to a h :.n ^'iojj spray of pink blossoms satisfying H3 a huppy dream. "I must get them." Sue springs up & mossy bank as sho spcais, regardless of the blnckborry branches that cross her path, barring her way, and catching viciously at her skirts, as though to hinder her progress. "Oh, tako enrol" crlos Kit, forgetting all about Lord Bacon In her terror lest her prot- ty sister shall not show to tho best advantage in her lover's eyes. "Your gown will be torn. Walt,—wait, until I set you freo from theso dreadful thorns. "Alas I how full of briers Is this working- day world," quotes Monica, guyly. "There, now I am nil right, and I have got my pretty rosos Into the bargain. Are they not sweet?—sweet/" holding thorn right under Kit's nose. "They are, indeed. And, by tho byo, 'here we are,' like tho cloivn," says Kit, pointing to a low fanu-houso in the distance. Reaching it, and finding the door as usual open, they enter what might bo tho hall In another house, but Is here the kitchen. Thoro is no leading up to It From the mo- moment you cross the threshold tho kitchen lies before you. It Is a largo room, If it may so be called, with a huge firoplace in which a dozen iires might be stowed away and forgotten. Just now tliero is a flame somewhere in Its backmost depths that camidt possibly annoy theso June visitors, as one has to search for it to find It An old woman, infirm and toothless, yet with all the remains of great beauty,, site cowering over this hidden turf fire, mumbling to herself, it may bo of golden days now past and gone, when she had been tho fairest colleen at moss or pattern, and had counted her lovers by the score. Yes. those were good old times, when the sky was ever blue and all tho world was young, Two youngor women, sitting nearhor, but further from tho chimney nook, aro gossiping idly, but persistently, in the soft, mellifluous brogue that distinguishes the county Cork. '• As the Beresford girls enter, these two latter women rise simultaneously and courtesy with deep respeot. The youngest of them, who is so like the handsome old woman ill "the corner of tho fireplaca as to be unmistakably of kin to her, comes quickly forward to greet her visitors with the kindly grace and the absonce of consciousness that distinguish the Irish peasantry when doing the honors of their own homes. This lack of mmtatee lumte arises perhaps from tho fact tbatthoy are so honestly giad to welcome a guest beneath their roof that! they ,f#rgef to bo shy or backward, -.•-:««,>. 1 She makes a slight effort to pulldown her tnokedHip sjeeves. and then desists for which any one with a mind artistic shpuld be de- voutly'grateful, as ber arms, brown as they are,frqm .exposure to the sun, are at least' shaped to perfection.

Whht arc ye ialkin'like thnt for?" says young .Mrs. Daly, who seems to bo the parish consoler. "Sure It's back ho'll be wld ye before thp new yenr."- • Oh, yes, I luipo so," says Monica, softly.

It would hnvo been considered not only a rudouass, but an act of hauteur, lo. refuse this simplo hospitality; so the girls seat themselves, and, indeed, to toll the truth, am rather glad than otherwise of this chance of seeming their afternoon tea. "An' how are the old Indies tip above?" says Mrs. Daly, im-anlng tho Misses Blako. , "Quite well, thank you,"says Monica. "It was only yesterday Aunt Prlscllla was sny- Ing she should como down and sec old Mrs. Daly." ' "She's as welcomo as the flowers In May whenever she comes," says tho daughter-ln- hiw. "D'ye hoar that, mother? Miss Prls­ cllla's comln' to see ye, some day soon. Ay, tls a good friend sho always was to the poor, summer an'winter; an' Isn't It wondherful now, Miss Monica, how she's kept her figure all through?

Yes, I was always glntcel," snys Mrs. Slolonoy, openly consoled. Still she sighs, and sips her tea with a mournful air. Mrs. Daly Is drinking hers with much appreciation out of her saucer. It. being considered discourteous to oiler anything to a guest without partaking of the same one's self. At this moment a llttlo cooing sound com' Ing from' tho other corner of the fireplace makes Itself heard. Instantly tho old woman stooping over tho tnrf embers rouses herself, and. turning, puts out her withered hnnd lovingly toward what looks like a box covered with colored stuff of some sort. Young Mrs. Daly rises, too, precipitately, and, hurrying across the kitchen, bends over the box. "Ay, she's awake sure enough 1" says tho old woman, who has quite brightened Into life. "See how sho looks at ye, Molly I The colleen of tho world, she was nsthore mach- ree-sthig." Many another fond name Is muttered such as "pulse, o* my heart," and such like, before Mrs. Daly junior emerges from the siippo-ed bo.v, hut not emptv-hamled. "Oh, It is the baby I" cry Monica and Kit, In a breath. "Oh I what a darling baby land what red, red checks, Just like n.Jiinorosel' It Is tho only daughter of the house, so the mother l» of course inordinately proud of it. (She places it, with (piitu a llttlo nourish of triumph, in Monica's arms, to Kit' terrible but un-poken disappointment. "She grows prettier every day. She is really the swcelcst lmhy J ever saw in my life l" uuys Monica, enthusiastically, to whom babies aro an endless joy. The mother is pleased beyond doubt at these compliments, yet a shade of anxiety crosses her brow. To praiseachlld too much in the sup Tstition of these simple folks, is to "overlook" it; mid when a child Is "overlooked" it dies. The smile fades from Mrs. Daly's bonny face, and her mouth grow: anxious. "You should say, 'God bless her,' miss when ye give her the good word," says Mrs, Moloney, timidly, who is also bending over the beloved bundle, nnd notes tho distress in her neighbor's eyes. "'lotl bless her I" suvs Monica, with nret- ry solemnity, nin-r WHICH tne mother's Ia<» clears, and sunshine is again restored to it "1 think S'.MS knows ye,"she says to Moni cn.

In order to have good celery there ought to tie no serious check to the growth of the plants from Ihe time they lire pricked out till their full the is reached.

Tlisy will stand up stifly, and with n little assistance from tho watering pot will scarcely cease growing. With very littlo furthur trouble they will form large, sturdy plants with solid leaf stalks and tho best of hearts, contrasting in nil respeots most favorably with those less well treated. Wlien To Sell. Having occasion lately to ascertain at whut pr.ces various farm products havi sold in each month for the last two years, we were convinced that tliero was u lesson therein by which many farmers might profit. There is no lessor here for the lip-shod, and none for those confined in tho ruts, but we could not help considering tlio value of brains as u farm commodity more than ever before. Not that we consider high prices whol ly ii product of gooJ planning, ns such things are regulated largely by supply and ilemunil, and large prices usually | revail, when there is, for any reason, it searcit of product. There is, of course, some dif ficulty to bo overcome anil ol'irn additional expense in ^bringing products to market when hijjh prices prevail. If all these liflieulties were to be ovt rcome by the musses these prices could no longer be possible. It is n settled fact that the masses do not overcome these difficulties and the prices nrs still paid—not to the lucky, usually, but to thoso who have bostoweil care in carrying out the details of a settled policy of production agreeable to n well concocted plan, the result of u wise use of bruins. When this farm sent butter to market, contracted to customers for a yearly price more thiin we nro now getting for the best month at tho creamery, we had little thought ns to summer unit winter prices While we wero doing this, and a few others the same thing, the majority were getting 20 cents in June and July, and '28 cents in November, Decsm'ier, and January, if they had any to sell. We nre aware that cows must, be fed at more ex pense to produco butter in winter than in summer, yet the farmer intends to feed hi; hay, grain and ensilage to something then why not lot the cows go dry at pus turo when butter is cheap, and get the other eight cents. In eggs we found still in ire variation in prices. The price paid pel dozen in May leing 12 cents and in January 113 emit We uro uwnre that hens are not-ns easily regulated as cows, lint somebody's hen laid when eggs wero Xi cents a dozen, and there was a reason for it. It was either in the breed, feed, quarters, age of chicks all of these conditions, or several in coin bination. We have no doubt somebody bruin's were nt work planning for the eggs at 33 cents a dozen, months beforehand. It. has often happened that there was two or three cents more u pound to be had for early sheared wool, but this lias not been tho case for tho lust two or three years; as so many fanners uro now keep, ing sh- ep that, do so much belter for being sheared that iho local markets aro early supplied. The price of beef has almost always, been a little firmer just before the small cattle get fat nt pasture. For this raisou fann­ ers who hnve nice oxeu steers, ready to go oarly have been will paid for their planning- nnd extra feed. While good lambs are often bought for four cents a pound live weight, in tho fall, nine nnd (en cents a pound await, not tin; lucky, but those who luy plans tor it and feed liberally. Wo might go on and speak of broiler chickens, lato strawberries, early apple, nnd a variety ot strictly farm products, to say nothing of the prices paid for celery anil other green vegetables; but wo have said enough: we hope, to set some readers to thinking, mid there n?eil be little fear that all will bring their products to market for highest prices for fear that sueli a thing would defeat the whole plan.

This may be nn extreme way of jputttnp it, and against this there is the opinion ol another banker that "it is impo-isible foi i bnnk lo be in trouble without tho bant examiners" but the trnti probably lies somewhere bitween tliesi two extremes. If the examiner suspect' crookedness he is generally able to dis- over it. If he is without suspicion nnil not especially alert, a smart rascal at the head of the bank can usually conceal hi' theft* from the examiner as lie decs from bis directors. Tho only safety for iinrxuniner would seem to be tho insiimp'ion that all bans Ificers nre pns.-ible rogues anil that there is something wrong hidden in the account- of the bunk which it. is his business to iind out. This is nn uncomfortable position t< assume, hut it is the only one tlia'c-iuld make a bank examiner of much use. II he takes anything whatever for grin I PI I. he only irives u falsa sense of security ami thus helps to deceive. VKuKTAIIhE riltltlj. Cultivating Iluckleberrlos. Many people have failed in their at- temp! s to cultivate huckleberries. Tli6 California Fruit Grower says tliero is but one way to grow this fruit successfully. The bushes will not grow satisfactorily, if at nil, when given clean cultivation. The roots require shndo and the plants should be sot close together and cut down low ut first, so that tho branches will spread out and shade the roots, in addition to this, a mulching of leaves, sucli as they are accustomed to in thewoodB, should be given, They will always grow bettor in partially Winded places than in the open field. ^Tuke Cure of the Cattle iVo should now turn to the cuttle, for at i.iis time of the year is when tlio farmer's Vnowledgo as a care-taker is moBt valuable. The more he knows concerning diseases peculiar to animals and a judicious method of treating them, the better will be his chances of raising good stock. Experience tenchos that to cultivate nnd maintain cattle in good health is cheaper thuudootorlng them for diseases, many of which might be preventod. Yes, i ,s a care-taker bis policy must, be to prevent as well as to euro. Yet it is not e<>sy for every farmer to know and determine just what istobe'donelor -nBickuniinal. It, might be difficult even for-an experienced voteri nury surgeon to jgiv$ prompt relief in sone instances'. Hence tne farmer should be ever watchful against unhealthy conditions or symptoms of ill health, isolating the affected animal and calling in the veterinary as Boon as possible, if the dis ease prove contagious, the owner thus reduces the risks to a minimum.

The efforts which are being made lo incr»» oj-cthc production of vegetable lilire in thi- country will recieve a strong stimulus from tlio display of fibrous phinti and llieii- pro ducts at the Coliiinbinn exposition. Uronp !) of the official classification in dudes nil of the vegetable libers, such a cotton, lie-up, (lax, Jute, ramie, in prim itive forms, and in all stages of preparation for spinning, substitutes for hemp cocoimut liber mid all similar substan ces. This country grows aiinu.illy about one million acres of llax, and a very lar^eacrc age of hemp, and these to are our principal fi'jre producing plants, with the exception of cotton. Our imports of iextile grnsscs and fibres now amount to about 258,000 tons pc annum, valued at nbout fourteen million doliar.s. There seems to be no good reus on why a largu part of the above sum should be paid to home producers, whicl would bo tin: cns» if more attention wapiti d to the production of vegetable film in this country than has been done in th past. Heretofore flax has been grow uy tlie farmers of this country iilmos entirely for seed, n part of the straw go ing to tow or paper mills nnd bringing on an average not more Hum 82-50 to 84.00 a ton, tho remainder, and much larger part, being burned or wasted. To what extent (lax may be profitably grown, bol for seed and fibre, is one of tho vexei problems which it is hoped tho exhibit n at the exposition will throw some ligh upon. Investigations show that the average humidityof the flax producing sec tions of this coun'ty is tlio sumo as that Bolgium and otb :• parts of klurnpe, when the uroduction n' f!ax for fibre is the chie industry of the farming population, an the exhibit of ",-ix from those countrie will no doubt pr ve interesting and vnl liable lo Amen"-.-! farmers. t'ilirelhi a new product from common flax straw, promises to have an inportan bearing on textile intciests in the future liy ii process of manipulation the straw is reduced to n short staple very closi resembling coif en or wool, nnd whe mixed with either is said to add maUrinll. to the value ot the product in beauty anil strength. It i- claimed that twcnty-tivi percent, of filnvlla mixed with seventy fiv per cent, ol iv,u>l in.ele into broiulclotl: gives a product much more valuable than woul alone. The nreiidevoted to ihe cultivation oi American heiuu has ot late years been ex tended into states north of the Ohio river, ami recent experiments encourage the hope that Sisal hemp may be profitably grown in Florida. Among other fibre plants now attract- ling considerable attention especially in ' the temperate sections of the United States, where thero is not a plant indigenous to Java or China, and from which it is exported in large quant,ties to Prance, Germany and England, and manufactured into linen nnd silks. California has appropriated 85,000 to purchase ramie roots for free distribution and us a bounty for merchantable ramie. Tho fibre of this plant rcceves und retaines Die most briliinnt dyes; is very rqpugnantto moths, and its tensile strength is forty per cent. greater than llax. It ranks next to silk as a textilo fabric. When cultivated it grows luxuriantly in. the southern states nnil in sonthern California, nnd the only difficulty "(tending i ho product 18 that a machine which will effectually Bopurnte the fibre from the stnllt has not been pro duced, although a number of machines have beon invented for tho purpose aud will be exhibited at the exposition. The exhibits of hemp, H.nx, jute, ramie, otc, ut the Paris exposition in 1878, and nt the Centonnial in 1876 wore very inter- eBtins and complote, and it is the purpose of Chief Buchanan, of the agricultural Do piiftmont, to make this groop at tho Columbian exposition equully so, nnd fully illustrative of the progress made in later years in tbo cultivation of fibre plants and tho methods of preparing tho raw material for market.
