The threatening ram clouds 6oo and spread,
And the whirling waters leap
Fr om rocky tarns near the mountiin head,
And on thiough the meadows swten
The dark grass bends ar the baidjcl shed
The glittering gem from th ir OJIpic woof
ut low is the sound with a monotoae tread
Where the ram falls slant on the roof
Apples with streaks of a enm-on dye.
And plums with a silvery pa 1,
From ram whipped trees in the orchard lie,
Or dashed neath the ga den wall,
The ram god drives thioujh a storm swept sky,
The pattering drops have the beat of a hoof
But dreamy at night is the lullaby
Of the rain on the sloping roof
Quick splashes drip fiom the darkened pane,
And we Know the petals part
From lilhes drenched with the driving rain,
And tears from the red rose start.
Thflt fields spiked thick with the bearded grain
Have heads bent lew in a dumb reproor
But soft on the ear as a nocturne strain
Is the fall of rain on the roof.

JONAS' WEDDING TRIP.
Uncle Priekett Delivers Some
44I never thought to come to thti"
said Mrs. Aikin, dolefully, as she
looked around the disordered kitchen.
"And the cream all spoiling for the
lack of some one to churn, and the
young turkeys all down with the pip,
and the white calf ailing, and me tied,
hand and foot, like this!"
"Don't fret, mother," said Jonas,
who, after a most clumsy and man-like
fashion, was frying potatoes over the
fire. "It'll all come right."
"It can't all come right," said Mrs.
Aikin, jerking out the words between
the spasms of rheumatism, "Every
thing will go to rack and ruin. O, dear,
Jonas, you'll have to hire a help. The
men are coming next week to cut down
the grass in the forty-acre medder
four of 'em, and all expecting to be
boarded here, and the doctor says it'll
be a chance if I get back my strength
in six weeks."
"I cau put 'em off, mother," sug
gested Jonas, cheerfully.
"And spoil the finest hay crop we've
ever growed," said Mrs. Aikin. "That
will never do. Hired help is the only
way out of it."
"I don't know of any one to be
hired," said Jonas, dishing up his po
tatoes in a way that struck a chill to
his mother's heart. "There's Phebe
Potter, but she asks two dollars a

Aikin. "What does she take people for,

their regular feedin' time, as well as
though they were Christians."
"I guess the pigs '11 keep," observed
philosophic Jonas, trudging slowly
down cellar after a pat of butter. Mrs.
Akin moved uneasily in her chair, and
uttered a groan.
O, dear' oh, dear! we never can get
along this -way," mused she. "Some
thing hab got to be done. Jonas!"
The curly head and sunburned face
appeared at the top of the cellar stairs,
like the Good Genu coming up through
the stage lloor in the pantomime.
"Look here, Jonasyou must get

the table with a bano*.
"Me'" said he "Good Lord, mother!"
he exclaimed, "what are you thinking
"Why, I don't see any better arrange-
ment," said Mrs. Aikin. "You're six
and-twenty, and I'm gettin' feebler and
more good-for-nothin' every day.
There ain't no gal we can hire short of
twelve shillings a week. A wife would
come a great deal cheaper, Jonasand
she wouldn't want no clothes for a
year, at lea^tand 'she'd sort o' take

itself to him, on further reflection, as

Aikin. "There's the new rag carpet

that night and told his mother Letty

we'll get something done about the
premises. Hurry up the wedding as

thing, Letty?" said Old Eben Hooper,
when his daughter showed him her
wedding dress with blushing pride.
"Why not, father?"
"Those Aikins have the name of

their neighbor, says Jonas is only get

shyly. '-And I'm awfully sorry for his
poor rheumatic mother."
"1 guess you'd better keep your pity
for yourself," observed Mr. Hooper,
shrewdly. "By all accounts, you'll
need it! Going to Uncle Prickett's
for your wedding trip, eh? Well, its
a pleasant part of tho country. 1 dare
tay you'll like it."
Uncie Priekett was a leather-ccm
plexioned old man, with keen black
eves and sharp, yellow teeth, like those
of an elderly monkey. He gave them
a cordial welcome.
"That's a pretty little new wife o'
yours, Mr. Aikin," said he. "And as
sma. as steU, too, though she ts my
ec," said Jonas, with modest ex
ultation, "I calculate she'll be helpful
like around the farm. We need a stir
ring woman at home."
"Not too helpful, lhope,"said Uncle
J" said Jonas.
"Look here," said Uncle Priekett.
"Sir?" stammered Jonas.
"Fond of her, eh?" questioned Uncle
"You bet I am!" Jonas promotlv re
"Then don't murder her!"
"Look here again." And Uncle
Priekett drew Jonas towards the win
dow. "D'ye see the church-yard ovei
there on the hill?"
Jonas shivered a little.
"Yes," said he, "I see it. Them
white stones gleamin' through the
trees aint it?"
My wife lies there." said Uncle
"Indeed!" said Jonas, a little un
i killed her!" said Uncle Priekett
Jonas started back.
"Eh?" he exclaimed a socond time.
"Don't look at me that way," said
Uncle Priekett. "I didn't stab her,
nor poison her. I loved her, young
man, just as well as you love your
wife. And yetI killed her. Do you
want to know how it was done?"
Jonas stared at him. Had the man
"Work!" said Uncle Priekett. "Hard
work! We were proud of the farm

Greece shows 6 sea-going, 31 first
