BT AN OLD COUTRlDCTOn.
The old story, I was governess ; a
poor dependant in a noble hoa6e. I bad
vjaoy times, seen the father of my two
' "little darlings ; I knew he was handsome,
though I seldom raised my eyes to his; I
thought him nnwontedly grscinns, but

She aH close beside me; she gathered up

"it will induce brain fever; kill yon,

Her eves flashed fire; she stood, her

"Oh 1 yon think yourself a paragon of

Ablank-arae over my life oh I tbe
weary time 'that passed 1' I would', not
look at nor speak to the baronet, till our
little'Gcrtrnde died. I saw her well at
evening; 1 wars roused at midnigntoy

my bosom ; in the1 morning, I laid,, back

She was gone. "I must go," I whisper

clothes, and stole softly from the honre,
that envy and jealousy had made terrililo
to me. I ihall-never forget-1 hit' night.
The hills were white.with moonlight, and
I wanted to pluck one violet to take with
me. Inthatqniet hour, I knelt sobbing
over thelittlomonnd, breathed one prayer,
gathered my flowers, and turned to go
I kne-v not whither. A tall form stood
beside me. I conld not fear him now, nor
dislike him ; be was so pale, so sorrowful,
as he said : "Lillian, whatdoes this mean?
Where are yon going, my child ?""
His voice trembled. I tnrned away,
and the tears ran'down my cheeks.
"Do we not treat yon well, Lillian?"
he asked, bow mournfully !
"Yes, oh'l yes," I murmured; ''yon
have been only too kind.','
"And my poor Utile motherles" child ;
would yon leave her,-Lillian?"
At this I lost my self-control. "If
you had not jested at me," I sobbed ;
"despised me, boasted that I !! -
"Stop, Lillian,' whaE do these words
mean ?" he asked, in stern tones.
"Lady Isabel I" I gasped; and as I
grew calm, as far-as my delicacy would

"It is false, falie, all false," he said,
taking my hand1; -"for so far from boast

did not dare believe that one so young,
so good and gentle', might feel other than
sentiments of Iriendbbip, lor a man so

His voice had grown soft and musical
I was astonished overwhelmed,; my
confidence deserted me. -

Pbefaratioh of Whitewash. White
wash is one of the most valuable articles
in the world when properly applied. It
prevents not only toe decays of wood,
but conduces greatly to tbe healthiness
of all building, whether of wood or
stone. Out-bnildings and fences, when
not painted should be supplied once or
twice every year with a good coat of
whitewash, which should' be prepsred in
thy following way: Take a clean, water
light'barrel, or other suitable cask, and
pat into it half a bushel of lime. Slake
it, by pouring water over it, boiling hot,
and in sufficient quantity to cover it five
inches deep, and stir it briskly till thor
oughly slaked. When the slaking baa
been effected, dissolve it into water, and
add two ponnda of sulphate of zinc, and
one of. common salt. These will cause
thetwash to harden, and prevent it crack
ing; which gives an unseemly appearance
to the work. If desirable, a beautiful
cream.color may" h"a communicated to the
above wash, by adding three pounds of
yellow ochre; or a good pearl or lead
color, by the addition 01 lamp, vine or
ivory black. For fawn color, add four
ponnda amber Turkish or American,
the latter is the chespest one pound In
disn'1red, and one ponnd common lamp
black. -'For' common stone color add
foBrponads raw umber and two ponnda
lamp blsck. This wash may ba applied
with ,a common whitewash bruin, and
.wtllfba.faund mnch superior, both in ap
pearance" and durability, to" common
whitewash. Exchange Paper.

Efficacy of Osioss. A writer says:
"Wo are often troubled with severe
coughs, tbe result of colds of long stand

premature death. Hard coughs cause
slee'ples nights, by constant Irritation in
the throat; .and a 'strong effort to throw
off ofieniive matter from the longs. The
remedy I. propose has .been tried by me,

tow Head for Fruit Tree "
Some writer, no. matter who, giree.tbe
following recommendations for the shape
of fiait trees. Tbey are commanded' to
all who raise snch treesrt ' '
It is said to be muehtbetter to grow
fruit trees with their heads and braaebes
near tha ground, tbaa to have tbem
branching over bead; for various reasons.
1st. The son, which is, perhaps,- fa
oar hot and dry summers, the tiaaee, of
more disease and. desractioa .in' trait
trees tbaa all other diseases together,, is
kept from almost literally 'scald Fog' the
sap, asit.does in long; naked trunks' and
limbs.. The limbs add cleaves of f tree"
should always effectually shade, the trBai
and keep it cool. The leaves only should
have plenty of sua and light';" they cad'
bear and profit by it. If trees1 were suf
fered to branch ont low, say oae or two
feet, from the ground, we shoali hear
mnch less of "fire blight," "froae sap
blights," black spots, and the like. ,,.," ,
2d. The ground is looser', 'mouifer,
and cooler, nnder a low branchfngf tree
than under a high one., Grass and Weeds
do not grow a hundredth, part so' rank; aad
readily, and mulching becomes" nhnVJeet
