These are the influences under which

which at last hast has brought me
peace, but through whose stormy seas I
have not yet half-way led the interested
reader; - -
It was on just such a day as this that
my poor rather died, lie nau been
slightly indisposed for a week or two,
but, as he was often ailing thus, I had
folt no serious concern about his hulls
It was Sabbath morning, and having
hurried my family off to church, I sat
down to read and study, for I liad by
this time acquired meaus wherewith to
ratify many of my keenest mental ne
cessities, and, in spite of croaking neigh
bora and tattlinir women, my husband
did not starve, and my children were
well clothed and fed.
My father was sitting in his great
arm-chair, with ids feet upon the opei:
window-sill, looking out on the lovely
hill-side where my mother and my
"Judith, come here, daughter," stud
he, tenderly, beseechingly, but with the
tone of firm authority in which he had
always addressed his children.
I was instantly by his sido and won

down upon my knees beside him, witli

"Judith, do you remember all about
your childhood V
Oh, father, don't I?" was my sad
response as I inineu my nice in my
hands, while before my mind, as a pan
orama, was displayed the home of my
childhood, with its never-failing mem
ories ; my unappreciated child-life and
its morbid fancies; my gentle mother
and her life of sacrifice ; iny three years'
life at Dr. Armstrong's, and my first
budding womanhood and its swere dis
appointment. Gently my father's hand
was laid upon my bowed head.
"Judith," and the voice was low and
sweet and solemn, "I've wanted for
years to unburden my mind to you, but
have never hail the moral courage to do
so until now. Sec there!" suddenly
starting as if in apprehension of seeing
some lookcd-forJaiinaritibn. "Do you
see. Judith ?"
There, standing at the window, with
in a few feet of us, I saw a man with
long, white beard and beautiful eyes,
erect, intently wstching me. I gazed,
awe-struck, spell-bound; but while I
gazed he disappeared, anil In my soul
the solemn promise, "I'll explain," at
tuned itself.to melody.

"You remember "William Snyder,
Judith ? I want to talk about him now
before my strength falls and it becomes
forever too late. He was honorably re
leased from SUitc's Trison long before
you married John Smith."
"Then he wasn't a criminal, father!
Oh, tell me heivas notl" I exclaimed,
"No, Judith, but lie was the victim of
a foul conspiracy."
"Oh, father, you were not In a leaguo
against him !" said I, anxiously.
"No, Judith, not that; but may God
forgive me! I knew long before you
married John Smith that he was Inno
cent of forgery and honorably free."
"And yet you never told me, father!
Oh ! this was too cruel I"
"Don't chide your father, Judith. I
thought I acted for your good, liut iu
all these years that you have toiled and
struggled and suflercu I liave felt that
some day you must know the truth.
I've seen that apparition many a time,
and I know that my time is short. I
believe it's Snyder's ghost that haunts
me, though I don't believe In ghosts."
I arose from my kneeling posture and
left the house, so full of overpowering
emotions that I was nlmost suffocated.
"Walking rapidly across the lawn to
the graves of my dead I nestled myself
among the bower roses where I to-day,
after the lapse of years, sit writing, and
throwing myself upon the grass, poured
out my soul iu thanksgiving. Again a
sort of mysterious magnetism overcame
me, and looking up I saw again for an
instant the dear features, beautiful eyes
and long, white beard that had ap
peared and disappeared so mysteriously
before my father and myself. Once
more that solemn promise, "I'll ex
plain," attuned itself to melody.
AValking back to the house as If in a
trance, I entered, expecting to find my
father reclining in the chair as I had
left him; but although the body was

A Chilih.kssIIomk The home may
be a palace, but its splendid halls will be
cold and cheerless as the fore-court of a
sepulcher. if they are not made the
laugh and Innocent hilarity of children,
through .whom the divine paternity
bestows jM.'rcnniul youth, ami hope, and
earthly immorality upon arcuts here.
Of all cheerless, unnatural places in the
world, a childless home is the most un
comfortable. There is something ojh
presslve in its vacancy. Its stillness is
stilling. Tho heart faints and cries for
what is not there. Tlie home into
which the Great Father has once placed
one of His little ones, for however short
a stay, is transformed by that visitation,
and can never lose the charm of that
mysterious coming, nor the light tllht
streamed through the door of the noise
less departure. That door is open, and
no baud can shut It; and just 011 the
other side the unseen child engages in
gambols, or is busied with tasks, which
it needs but a little imagination, blended
with faith, for a parent's heart to hear.
No home can ever be the same again
into which one Immortal being rose into
conscious life, and saw a heaven of love
In a mother's eyes. Birth is a great
sacrament. But the homo that has had
no such bantlsm is cold, dull and drearv
at the best, with none of the poetry of
uie in 11, no legenus 01 angels trailing
about it, and no star shining over it to
indicate that it is favored of heaven.
A Lauoh Fa iim. Twenty years ago
a farm eight miles square in Livingston
county, Illinois, was entered by its
present owner at $1 25 per acre. It is
now sultdivided into thirty-two farms
of l,2s0 acres each, every farm being run
by separate sets of hands, the whole
under the direction of the owner, M. L.
Sulllvaut. There are 15,000 acres under
the plough; 150 miles of hedge fence,
lA-Miies other fences; 150 miles of ditch
fur draining. One hundred men and
four hundred horse and mules are em
ployed on the farm, be.-ides two book
keepers, four blacksmiths, and eight
carpenters. Anaccunitcaecountis kept
witli each sub-farm, and with each man,
horse and mule, the animals being all
named or numbered, and charged with
tlie amount paid for them and their food,
and credited with their labor. The
entire farm, with improvements and'
personal property on it, is now valued
at about $5000,000.
