Ami, mi 'itiiwliile, tho county looked upon Mr. Kyre as a man who deliberately connive 1 at his own dishonor, mid who, for sullieient reasons, eucoiirattu 1 liis wife's companionship with Lord Lovcl on every possible, occasion. lie had never troubled himself to explain his wife's untimely ride to Lovul, explanations of all kinds lie cordially abhorred: and so luu j as lis was satis- lied, it did not occur to him to think thill any one else could bfl otherwise.. Frank's account of it (in Uto nature of tilings) was not believed, while Madcap was not even nwivro of tho grave misdemeanor slip had committed, and if sue had been called on to blame anybody, would have blamed the nss; while the Duko and Duchess, who hail set out for Sent kind immediately after their parly broke up, were not lit hand to give n true version of the story. The few persons who did not accent the current mr. and who, hein^ old were merciful, said that perhaps a ln'td- dlea^ed man like Mr. lOyre could not understand thill two yo;i:i,', )i ifli-sptriied people, drawn to^'i'ther by the eternal law that in •lines like io like, miiflit in time coma to prefer eaeh otlier'ssocicty to his. And I suppo-ie that such a tiling as fallim; out of love n person for no particular reason, just as one may : ud- uenly tiro of a food or an occupation, that has satisfied oan or years, is natural eiioujrli. (Jncouscmusly lo ourselves, little thin rs—'.rill is eveii—miv have been tnul •rmiuiiu' a per<ou in our regard, and o ie lav we awak -a wit'i a shock to tlie kuowlc We Unit what wo most valued his Ion' r.t'i.l our re,'irl; that by no conscious volition of oar own lie has been tried by a secret tribunal within us, an 1 sentenea passed upon him; so that it, is a eorosu only that oicupiiM the p!ac3 of ilia living object of our ivur.ilii|i of yesterday, and deeply as wo m iy ro^tet it, passionately as wo may seek to recall our tender- aess for it, ive cannot brine; it back to life a raiji, for love and it have died together. If Madcap had no such sense of full­ ing out oflove with Mr, Kyre, it was, nevertheless, certain that slio realized tlni oliiirm of youth in If rank morn vividly thai) she ever droamcd of. Ha came to supply a h ilf-iinderstoo I want in her life that hud often saddened her. for wlilld her whole aonl reposed itself on Mr. Kyru's love and strength, the s?ayely natural to her years am! character never foiin I freo vent In his nws- oni! •; and tier pleasure m I^'IMIIK'S company was that Btiu,'!liiiout in lier of repressed mirth that had always made her so bright and beloved a companion to IHT children-lau,'liter imtl jjat that m;iy have no mwinin,' to older ears, are natural and easy to youiM spirits who look out upon life with clear eyes and unshadowed hearts, th it moot happiness half way, and to whom the hues of sunshine are inure natural than those of iilulit.

If he had llamed out once to hor face, and told lier that God makes man and woman, but tho devil invents tho cant word of friendship between two of opposite acxes and similariit;es, she miaht hive drawn back from him as a scorpion, and despised him as before; but h? had not such strength of crudty or Kellisliness, and lot her seem to load him as she willed. And gradually tho estrangement between Madcap and her husband grew, for she could not forgive Ills hardness to Hester, and refusal to herself, while the slight coldness she had latelv sliown him, though it pierced tho man's heart to ils core, aroused his pride, so that it seemed easier to him to let go than eu- tri-iit her to remain besido him. Kach day ho grew less a companion to Madcap, shroiiditu; hims'lf from all communication with his fellows, and often speaking and moving liko a man in a dream, though at times lie would be inspired with those violent spirits that by some are looked upon as tho forerunner of death or disaster. A curious observer would have noticed that Mr. Evre constantly put Frank forward to perform those little a^ts of attention to which she was accustomed from himself, and Madcap's pride being touched, she took them willingly, and Hi'eiv into the h.ib.l of lookingto'Frank on every oceado i, and that, too, without any"apparent disrespect toward her husband. Her health was so sound, nnd her spirits so good, that often Mr. Kyre would forget her situation, nor feel that it called for any special tenderness from himself. Indeed, it wis his settled aim at this time to ropresi each impulse to> ward her as it arose, so that after atimn the habit of coldness seemed llxed; and a stranger seeing tlie two together might have suppose 1 this proud, rcserv. ed man to be bitterly rep mting the folly that had joined him to the joyous, girlish creature that ho called "wife. IVrhnps Dody was the only one who got a peep into her real heart at thar tune, or saw the tears that never fell save when her arms were round him l'erliaps, too, lie guessed the cause of them, for one dav, as he kissed hor eyes dry, lie exclaimed triumphantly— "Daddy makes you cry—I make you well!" Mr. Kyre would have Frank at his house at all hours, and the children must go to the Towers and fetch him if a day passed without his appearauc and "often from his window Mr. Kyre would look out at thijse two young p'ui pie, and tlie happy children, feeling I himself as far away from all four as | though ho iiiliabited'another world; but no twinge of healthy jealousy or pain moved him, a profound apathy held him in its grip. If formerly lie had struggled against fate, now "lie seeme 1 passively to resign himself to it; or ratlie.r, having decided on his coarse, lie permitted himself, to drift with thi) current, feeling no sttiviugs of love, sorrow, hate, revenge; and even lookingon Hester one il iv. when shecvoisvl his pith in tlie vii a e, with an indifference that was not assumed. If sometimes Madcap's careless glance, as it llittcd past him, caught something of the change in hisfacj, it moved her more with tho irritation of youth ag ,inst a self-eentercl, preoccupied in in, than witli tho pity that had formerly thrilled lier at any sighof anxiety in him, and the look, ths word, which might have broushi their hearts In unison," rem lined iinsp >ken. I'crimps if lie could have told a fairy tale as Frank did, with a curly head resting on each shoulder, or stooped to the .•x.piisi.e fooling that can alone make m ei aa 1 women tho companions o; ehi'dr M i !c ip might have forgiven his cold i '.s i toward horaalf; but what was tho young fe'low's charm, hit strength to .Madcap, showed in th« light of a weakness to Mr. Kyre. And meanwhile the season stole on ward, tlie corn lay in golden seas beneath the August sun, and tho farmers wiped the sweat from their brows, and praised God for tho weather. The storm-cock had not been heard for a month; the harsh cry of the swift sounded like music in tlie ears of those who desired but lino weather for a few days longer to gather in that which had taken so long t > grow; the slaughter of the innocents, otherwise that of the drones by the boos, was over; and tlie wild cherries bad ripenod, and been eaten by unpainpered village lips. The fools'-piirsley had emerged to look for his brethren above ground, and gone home again, not having loarned much that was now; the asphodel had come again, asking the olil question thatsofowof us can answer; and the Hying ants been received with hatred and seen to depart with joy. In that ripe, still splendor of Hold, and wood, and sky there fas a gorgeous solemnity, a superb hush, us though, having run its utmost limit of perfoction.the hand of the dial now struck the hour in one grand perfected rote, tlion turned to retrace its steps, a little of the wealth and life lessiug with its every step and growing grayer and colder as it retreated.

The 1st of Septembe-had arrived, but neither at Hi; T"vers nor tho Hid Hall was anv pnttv dssutubled, though, a' Mr. Eyre's urgent request, Frank de> parted for a few days to a neighboring nouso, whore he bewitched 1 ' omen nnd enraged the men. by t ilieiti with WHICH no wore ins nonors as modem Lovelace. The woman's inuendoos, and the men's open congratulations on his success, sent Frank horns with such a sick feeling of tlie powerlossnoss of calumny, that for three days after his return ho could not bring himself to approach tlie Hal Hall. Hut Mr. Eyre, who had watched his wife narrowiy, thinking that she droo. ed in Frank's absence, sent him a private word, begging liini to come over next day, and, himself unobserved, was witness" to the scene between then) when they met. Madcap was sitting in her favorite nook of the garden with a scrap of needlework in hor hand, and a nursery book on hor knee, out of which she was teaching tho children to spell, when, looking up, she saw Frank coming, nm BlurUiil up nil rosy Willi delight. And first Donne tin- nv down his hook, and rushing to the young follow, got hold of his hand and shook it uiaii-fashlou; then Dody g it his oth <r. an I must kiss his "dear, beautiful Frank," and so reach his shoulder; Hum Madcap ad vanced and placed lier little huiul and thimble In tils unoccupied one, so thai unconsciously they mil) one of those most beautitut picture that the gazer may be permitted to think so much flu liner because it never painted. Mr Eyre looked on contented. This was a it should bo. When feeling the vita, forces decaying within hiui, he thnugni he had resigned himself willingly u death, seeing happiness for Madcn] with Frank lit tlie future. „ • • in mat curious seatse of dual exla tenoe that had long possessed him, lie seemed at thut moment to be looking on at something that had been, or was about to be, no sense of outrage to himself piercing tho insensibility that en wrapped him; but Frank, catching sijlit of that face beyond, and a» though a glance hud power to dissolve the group. Madcap and tin? boys were tell bsltlnd, nnd the, two men brought face to faoe. " VA11 well, FrankV" Bald Mr. Eyre brought back to realities by the grip u the young fellow's hand. "All well." said Frank, with a siuh. »'Thel)ake '8 whlte-vasltinvj ha* taken eflej3i %jtnil£tH]t^^ by jiuuiau irom a great distance, wcro living, and he, all unseen, a spirit who kept p ice beside then), nnd of whoso presence they were ignorant, as his memory by them was forgotten. Ho seemed to walk on air. his head light as his sliad- ow cast before him, down a long, long arcade that had no ending, and in which lie was doomed to walk with these two who knew him not, forever, though with it all ho had a vague sense that lie was asleep, and dreaming over again something that hud happened to him yesterday, or the day before. Air, sky. and earth were lulled to an exquisite calm; the very birds; cheated into the belief that spring had come again, poured out their songs as sweetly ns in Unit brief time, of love and happiness, it was the hour of tho year's rcposo. tlie quiet folding of its hands as it sank peacefully to sleep, its preparations over, its fruits garnered in, like one of those saintly lives whoso evening is even more satisfying than its vigorous, striving youth. Half way down the avenuo Madcap paused suddenly, as the regular blow of a woodman's"ax sounded in the distance. "Hark!" she cried. "Von nro cutting down these trees!" and she turned to Frank with eyes of reproach. "It is only the M'ookpecket," ho said. "No," ho added in a lower lone, "not one of these lofty glorious heads ever fell at my bidding,—never shall as long as I live. There is something appalling, even blasphemous to me, in the sight of one of these monarclis, that have weathered so manv storms, crashing to earth at tho bidding of man, not tiod. To lie rent by a thunderbolt is grand, but lo bo hewn down by llio ax a degradation." "It is liko a human life," said Madcap, looking wistlully up at Die interlaced boughs overhead. "How much better to be struck down by one blow— the short sudden pang nuiokly over, bearable because of the happiness nnd vigor lasting to the end, than to die gradually—fust one's illus ; ons, then hopes, then perhaps love, then, by and by youth, and one's soul and heart dying last of all.'' Frank's eyes sank; he supposed her to be thinking of Hester, but Mr. Kyre looked up. while l>ody, struck by the word ihV, exclaimed— "Don't die. mummy, don't die," nnd clung with desperate fondness to her hand, while Donne announced his intention of killing any one who hurt her, with his new pocket-knife "You have overtired yourself," exclaimed Frank, seeing how white she had suddenly gone: and as he spoke, she staggered slightly, and involuntari lv putting out her hand, seized that of Mr. Kyre. It was like a stray clasp recalling wandering soul to earth. He took the baud, and drew it under his arm, look ing down at her with a glance that made hep steps still more uncertain as they traversed the remainder of the avenue. ,lob saw thorn approaching, and in diilged in a pantoniine that express intense hatred of something or somebody, though when they had entered the house he was assiduous in bringing w:ne, and waiting upon Mrs. Kyr who had long ago won his heart. When she was settled in an easy chair by the library window, Frank took tlie children away, looking bad ouco us he went to where she snt, as in bygone years ho had so often pictured lier silting as his wife; though this was a paler Madcap than the one ho liai hoped to win. "It is a place to dream In," she said almost timidly, when she found liersell alone with Mr. Eyro, lier eyes tiirnin lrom tlie avenue to glance around th room in which she sat, lofty and beaut' fill witli its ceiling and walls of oak blackened witli age, and decorated will arms and trophies of the chase. Hit Mr. Kyre noted that a blood-red stain was thrown across her bosom from th Blained glass of the upper window, ii which tlie colors glowed like a tulip bed through which tlie sun is shining "And to be lumpy in as well," said Mr. Kyre. "Ami this was to have bee your liomo, Madcap. How much more sue sam, looking up. tier lips quivering. '•You should have thought of that before. I nm in raid—even to oblige you and the Duchess—it is too late now." "I was thinking of Frank." said Mr. Eyre, not yot free of his character of on-looker. "And of course Frank is tho first con sideratiou," said Madcap gravely, with a suspicion of mischief playing rrmd her month. Mr. Eyro turned quickly, nnd looked at her. As their eyes met, somothlu in hers turned to stone in Ids breast to a living thing that leaped toward her nnd brought him to lier side. "Madcap." lie s id, ami the old mas terful ring had come back to his voic the old lire to his eves, "you would rather be up at the U '.l'llall than bore! A deep blush gathered on Madcap": face us she glanced up at tho worn and weary face that had for a moment regained all its chm m, ilien, half tiirnii away, gave him one of thoso sudden sweet looks that none but a good w man knows how lo give, and llien oni to the man whom she pnioly and deep loves. "And could you think of my lovin any one—or of any one but my husband loving me?" slie said in a whispi "And did you admire tho Duchess she added anxiously. "Not I; but you admired Frank." "No; I loved him. I do love him,' she added gravely, "You see, he is fond of the children, and, then," he her dimples looked out, "lately wehav nee- sacrificing each oilier for Fr.m «)i t >i U> ii'.

Some of the best bulls In the country nro being bought by the range cattle men. It Is a pretty good sign that they are iu the business to slay. The main objection to salting butter In the churn Is that yon do not know- how much butter then; Is, and heiuv, cannot tell how much suit to use.

It may bo that authors generally have considered the process too simple to need describing, for theso Ulves are usually made braided straw forming ropes tin luch or or two in diameter, and these are laid around a form of the required slsio, and then skewered together to givo solidity mid keep tho hive in shape when removed. A full size straw hive will hold ubout three peoks, but they arc sometimes smaller.

But wo never knew conditions where cows could run In apple orchards and help themselves to fruit without getting far too much. The apple treo should be trained so low that a cow can reach the lower limbs even when not loaded with fruit. They lmv great fondness for apple leaves when they caimot get apples, and will strl| tho limbs of leaves If allowed access to them. This helps to dry up their (low of milk. A pig should make a pound a day for every day of Us life. If it does this ii is ready for market at any time after it Is six months old. To get the growth from tho use of skimmed milk It must bo fed to tho pigs while sweet, and preferably with cither corumeal or middlings. Tho two feeds combined will produce more than doublo tho growth that either will slugly. When tho pasture Is gottlng short ii the autumn It will pay you to buy mill food to keep the hogs growing.
