Maine, being struck with the domestic talents
uud agreeable manners of hi hostess, he
entered hiio sumo conversation with her.
Knowing that ho was couniiccted wilh the

Ibrce into the system, intellectually iu the
leisure which they force on one for intellec

will relate un nntJcdolu which 1 heard in my
village under Iho mountains, which might
give some of our Southern friends a new
iden of what a winter hero ia like.

what dill you all do?"
"Tunnelled through it!" said my friend,
composedly we hail a tunnel some iniecii

"And pray how long did it Insl?" said I.

" It Hindi the house very warm, indeed,"
addetl hi wife, "almost oppressive."
That was ono view of a anow hank thnt
had never auggested itself to me. Itnt I
must ndd to what 1 said about the Maino
women mul girls, one drawback one is im
pressed with il even iu the most mountainous
districts the want of an appearance of ro
bust health. The young girls nro fiir spark
ling, intellectual-looking hut they nre want
ing iu Iho physique. They look like forest
ilowera very fair, hut ns if a breath might
wither Ihem. The mind soenis altogether
to have got tho atart of Iho body. The long
winters may have something to tin w ith this.
For more than hnlf the yenr tho liimiile aex

partially ventilated, as room iu cold weath

nnd sew and go nut, nt most, only in pleas
ant weather olien only in sleighs, wilh
lathers or brothers to drive them, and the
sleigh is a vehicle that gives nn sort of exer

for that predisposition to disease of the lungs
which is constantly the terror ol every pa

year hundreds of the fairest fur tho grave ?
Think of the commit between tho stove-
