ATypa That U Too Oftnn Met with In Tbl> Country. I can see her,"a faded, hagg-ard, eal- low woman, tired from the weary rising in tho dark winter raorninjrs, to the crawling- from tho unfinished pile of mending- to the cold room up stairs' lit night. Her husband is kind to hor, but he has his own work; and hor back aches, she is cli/./y and faint, nnd life prows a heavier load on her shoulder* every tiny. She does not consider that her health is a p:irt of the home capital; and she is sure that they cannot afford to hire help, behindhand as they are; they can't afford a doctor (who would rido ten miles and charge fivo dollars), but she remembers that the last time she was at church she heard ono of tha society speak of a patent medicine that helped her last sprinff, and she will send for the medicine. Or else she writes to tlio household paper (price fifty cents a year) which she takes, asking- tho editor's ndvlce. What pathetic and suggestive things are tho correspondence column in these humble journals! How the ineradicable womanly Ions-ing- to be attractive comes out inqnutir prescriptions to prevent tho hair falling out, to remove freckles, or to make over old gowns with small sleeves into the flamboyant style of thi: day; bow the woman's heart peeps through its thin dis^nisu in these pitiful letters duscribir.y lonely lives and love that the stroii;; years conquer, and the daily jar and fret of ilisil'lusioned toil, and all the rest of tho dismal story. 1 seem to see the broken woman, who was a joyous arid ambitions |,'irl, UifTS'in-r ever moro wearily at her Sisy- plms Monc of. duties, j^i-owm;; moro irritable, more eiimplainiu;,', as strurg-lh and heart fail, until the day bhull come when the tired mother will not ureep down-st:iirs. Then 'the neighbors will watch and nurse by turns, and the doctor, who mi'g-hl have helped yoai-s ;ijro, will be called in to witness prop.-rly the end that he can not avert.-—Octave Thanct, in Scribner's. —Very long- skirts were introduced in Franco by the daughters of St. Louis.

HER LITTLE ROMANCED A Childhood Upon tho ltl«»U New Kn)tl»o<! Comt. The dark slate stones that now slant to thoir falls in the old burying-ground, or are fallen already, then stood straight. Tho old inscriptions now blurred over by moss and lichen, or •worn back into the face by tho wash of tho heavy coast rains, were then quite plain. The winged cherubim and death-heads—the terrible religious symbols of the Old Testament, made roali&tio'by New England minds under stress of grief—wore quite fresh from the artist's hands. The funeral urns and weeping willows, with their every curve the droop of a mourner's head, and nil their Howing 1 lines of tears, wore yet distinct. Indeed, tho man who had graven many of them was still alive, and not yet passed his gloomy toil. He lived in his little house not fur beyond the burying ground, and his name- was Ichabod liuckley. He had a wife Sarah, a son Ichabod, and three daughters. Submit, Kobecca, and Persis. When I'ersis was twelve years old a groat change and H. romance came into hor life. Sho was tho youngest of the family; her brother was ten years older than she; her sis- tors was'ten years o'.der still. She had always been to a certain extent petted ;nul favored J"i-om IHT babyhood; still, until she was twelve, she had not boon exempt from hor own little duties and privations. She had gathered driftwood on the shore, her delicate little liguro bulToted and shaken bv the rough winds. She hail (ill!:' quahaiigs, wading out in the black mud, with her petticoats kilted high over her slender childish legs. She had spun her dai'.y stint, and knitted faithfully on harsh blue yarn seeks for her father and brother. In the early autumn, when she was twelve years old, all that was changed. One morning in September it was hot inland, but cool on tho point of land reaching out .into the sea where'the P.uckley house stood. The sou, Ichabod, had gone to sea in a whaling-vessel; the father was at home, working- ill the little slanting shed behind the house. One could hear the grating slide of bis chisel down the boughs of a weeping willow on a new gravestone. A very old woman of the village had died that week. At the left of the house there was a bright unexpected glint from a great brass kettle which tho eastern sun Struck. Ichabod Uucklcy's wife had her dye-kettle out there on forked sticks over a fire. She was dyeing some cloth an indigo-bine, and her two elder daughters wero helping her. Tho two daughters Submit and Rebecca looked like their mother, Tho three, from their figures, seemed about of an a ,re—all tail and meager aud long limbed, moving in thoir scanty petticoats around the kettle with a certain dry pliability, like three tall brown, weeds on the windy marsh, Persis came up from the shore at the front of the house with her arms full of drift-wood. Sho was just crossing the front yard when she heard a sound that startled her, and she stood still and listened, inclining her head toward tho woods on the right In the midst of these woods was the cleared space of the graveyard; past it ran the rough path to tho main road. Seldom any but horseback riders came that way; but now Persis was sure that she heard the rumble of carriage-wheels, as well as the tramp of horses' feet. She turned excitedly to run to her mother aud sisters; but all at once the splendid coach and four emerged with a great flourish on the open space before the house, and sho stood still. To-day Persis had no idea why these fine strangers in the grand coach sat still with their eyes riveted upon her face. She stood there in tho windy grass, in her little straight blue gown, clasping her drift-wood to her breast, and stared, turning hor back altogether upon her own self, at the coach and the trappings, and the black coachman in his livery, with his head like <i mop of black sheep's wool, and his white, rolling eyes, which half frightened her. She looked a little more curiously at this black coachman than at the lady and gentleman in tho coach, although they were grand enough; and, moreover the gentleman was very handsome and not old. He thrust his fair head, which, had on it a slight silvery sheen of powder, out of the coach window, and the pale old face and velvet hood of the lady showed over his shoulder, and they both stared at Persis' face. Then the gentleman spoke, and Per- 6,'S started, and blushed, and dropped a courtesy. She had forgotten that until now, and felt overcome with shame. "Good-day, my pretty maid," said the gentleman; and as he spoke he stepped out of the coach and approached Persis. Sho saw, with hnlf- claxzled eyes, his grand, fair head, his queue tied with a bluo silk ribbon, his jeweled knee-buckles and silk hose, his flowered waistcoat, and the deep falls cf lace over his long w.hitc hands. No such fine gentleman as this had ever come within her vision. Sho conrtcsied again, and looked up in his face when ho. reached her. Then she looked down again quickly, and the strange salt savor of tho drift-wood, overpowering a sweet perfume about the stranger's rich attire, came up in her blushing face. Tho gentleman looked very kind, and his eyes wero very gay and blue, yet somehow she waa frightened and abashed. It was as if ho saw something within herself of which sho had not dreamed, and suddenly forced her to see it also, to her own confusion. The peutlemmn laughed softly when she looked down. "Is it tho first time you have had another pair of eyes for your looking-glass, little maid?" he asked, with a kind of mocking caress in his tono. Persis did not lift har eyes from tna drift-wood. She blushed more deeply, and her sweet mouth trembled. "Nay. tease not the child. Ask If her lather be in the house," called the lady's soft voice, with a little impatient ring in it, from the coach. •"Tis but tho fault of my eyes, your ladyship," retorted the gentleman, gay ]y. "They are ever as lakes reflecting flowers in tho presence of beauty, and I doubt much if this Ij.Ulc maid liatb ever seen herself so clearly before i: eyes like mine have come in her way." Persis' mouth quivered more. She wanted to run away and did not dare; but suddenly the gentleman spoke again, quite gravely and coldly, and all the gay banter in his voice was gone. "Is your father, Ichabod liucklcy, •within, my good maid?" ho said. Persis felt as if a spell which had been east over her were broken. She dropped a courtesy. "Please, sir, my father is yonder, cutting a weeping-willow on old Widow Nye's grave-stone," she replied, pointing toward the rear of the house; and hhe spoke with that punctilious courtesy with which she had been taught to address strangers. "Will you bid him come this way'? 1 would speak withhim," said the gentleman. "And bid him hasten, for this air from the sea is full of cold for me'." called the lady from the coach. Persis dipped another affirmative courtesv toward her, then 1led swiftly nround'the corner of ihe l-.ou.se.—Mary E. Wilkir.s, in Harper's Magazine. QUEER DUCK NESTS. Prnvlil<-il by HIP IV:i*:iMls ol tlio Quaint Old 'IVnvD of <".rou\v. Tin- water-fringed village of Cromv, in Krieslaiid, North Holland, is remarkable for two things—cheese and ducks. The lakes which fringe the village on thive r-idi's :iiv thiok with bnllruxhes and \\ aid-grass, and :i fl'ord excellent cover for wild dueks and other aquatic fowl. To promote the comfort of the former, and at the same time facilitate the collection of thoir eggs, the villagers construct nrsts of the form shown in the accompanying illustra- DUCK yESTS IS HOLLAXD. tion. The nests are made of plaited rushes, and are hung on poles driven into the soil, or perched between tho forks of trees. Above each coterie the owner of the nests fixes pieces of col' ored cloth which enable him to readily distinguish his nests from those of his neighbors. These bits of bunting are useful also to the birds, who invariably keep to their own nests. The owner g-oes each morning in his boat to tho nesting ground, thrusts his arm into the bottle-shaped nests, and collects their contents for the market. DAIRY SUGGESTIONS. IF, by accident, you have a poor tub of butter, don't put your brand upon it, but send it oil and let it bo sold on its merits. POOR help in the dairy is worse than no help at all. Milkers or butter makers cannot be picked up at the crossroads. The business requires experience, fidel- itj' and patience. A GOOD reputation is a good help in making butter, so when you get it don't for the world Wast it by sending off a package of poor butter when there is a chance of » good customer getting it. IT is not wise to take any cream from milk that is to bo made into cheese. There may be a small per cent, gain by the operation, but it will be followed by a damaged reputation that it will take a long time to outgrow, so that in tho end it will be a losing business.— Farmers' Voice. Some rolnts Wortli Considering. In the dairy a good animal is the one that will profitably convert feed into milk, butter or cheese. In this, quantity is not the only consideration, neither is quality, lloth arc important, but the cost is rather more important than all else. There must be a liberal quantity and the quality must be good. At the same time both, must bo secured at a cost that will leave a fair per cent of profit if rightly managed. And there is more certainty of doing thu with certain breeds than with others,— Eural World. Glnditono't Anmml Income. Gladstone, in addition to the $500,000 left him by his father, has a rent roll of the Hawarden estate, which camo into the possession of his wife on tho death of the last male Olynne.
