61 ANGLE AS A IOVF.R
I first met Spangle at a country fair.
We were introduced to each ottt.er at
about 10 o'clock in the morninyand,
if you believe me, I did nCijV
chance to 6peak to an "Vf"
fctruck at first-Bij;!. T do noCvunk he
saw a horse, or in fact, anything Jiat
was on exhibition that day butlme, :il-
thnro were -nrescnt ffiHctV of
thp most beautiful and accomb-hed
young ladies of that section of T:oun-tr-y.
As he was extremely good-looVcing
cf good family, and unexccptiotCab'e
character and habits, I, of course, felt
flattered bv this marked prefereQce.L
had to take him to dinner, and intro
duce him to pa and ma and the whole
family, lie made a very good impres
sion. In fact. Spangle can fchiuo when
ho tries. I remember tho fact with
pride. Well, it is the old story. He be
came infatuated, and obtained rny pcr
mibsion to visit me at my home and
spend a day there in just two wev.-ks
from tho time we first met. During
these two weeks I received daily long
letters from Simon, closely written and
cross written. I wish I had k.")t theoi.j
At length the day of his vis'.-: arrived,
and lo and behold the servaut girl
awo'.o trip in the morning with the
pleasant information that pan;'e was
waiting fur me in the parlor. Here was
a lover for you.
MARH.'AGE AXD HONEYMOON.
Well ! well ! As I said before, it was
the oil story ever recaring, ever sweet
ly told and ever listened to by willing
ears. SufSee it to say that from that
day I saw no peace until I became
Mrs. Spanqlc. Our honeymoon was, I
suppose, Vie all honeymoons, short and
THE REALITIES OF LIFE.
And then came all tho realities of
life. It is my belief that this is the
most trvinr period of a woman's life.
However kind and attentive her hus
band may be. a young wife, when she
enters upon the actualities of life, has
disclosed to her a state of faiii-i--udi Ich
r,K has little or no conception beloro
marriage. When she leaves an atmos
phere of romance and adulation, and
enters upon the realities of life, it is
stepping out of a garden of summer
flowers into the regions of perpetual
winter, and unless she brings all of her
good sei.s; and philosophy to her aid,
h?r affections become chilled and she
will regard herself a disappointed, it'
not deceived, woman for the balance of
her life. It is the hope that our expe
rience may be .of benefit to young
wives, that induces me to reveal some
of the domestic incidents and infeiici-
lio vn' 'i i L.iui jr i t til i ii uru. '
After our brief holiday, Spangle
to use his own expression took a tilt
at the world, determined to wrest from
it not only a competence, but a fortune
that would place me in the most beau
tine attitude to be obtained by opul
ence. The dear fellow did work hard, and
if he met with obetacles and dimculties
and trials, the world never knew it.

although he did not accuse me as the
cause, yet I could but feel that I was
in so:. YaV or other accountable for
Although I never serWiy jj
hig love for me, yet he certainly pr,
milted many excellent opportunities for
manifesting it to pass unimproved. Be
fore we were married he seemed to have
a perfect mania for holding my hand,
aud I used to wonder if he would ever
give me an opportunity to do my needle
work alter marriage. L-ut, bless yourl
soul ! after marriage, when opportuni
ties for indulejinj; in that delicious
past-time were abundant' it seemed to
have lost its charm. I'oor foolish me
I was often argriowxi t 1 apparent
coolness, r.nd would ask mm so times
a day if he did love me. ."Why cu--tsinly
I do, my dear little puss i you
know it." Perhaps I did. I also knew
that wa had plenty of Hour and bacon
in the pantry, but that knowledge did
not satisiy my hunger.
TIIE HONEYMOON IN A TAHTiaL
It is true that this affection manifes
ted itself spasmodically with all the
warmth and ardor of the old days ;
but these ebullitions were the excep
tions. The rule was, "I thought vou
J-s, giris, when you get
husbands, they wiil expect vou to know

have to be done by the wife.

T go to bed firtt, in the morning I find
his clothes scattered over the room, as
only a man can scatter clothes. He
would never put cn a clean shirt if it
were not spread out on a chair before
him. His sleeve buttons are taken out
and put in by me, when taken out and
put in at all. I do not believe that he
has combed his own head since we were
married. lie can't even wash his face
properly without beirg told, like any

SPANGLE ON A SICK EED.
Albeit he has no patience for others
io have pains and aches, yet you
ought to see him when anything is the
matter with lum. He tears, ami screnm:;
and grunts over a slight attack of colic
iu a manner to keep every one awake
in the house. At such timet lie always
believes lie is goin;; to die and will not
suffer me to leave him for a moment.
Yet with all his fiults I well, you
kno.v the quotation. 1 believe he is the
best man living, and would not give him
for a ten-acre lut fall of men like the
scapegrace of a husband which your
foohsh, credulous correspondent ' Dolly
Dash'' is so silly about.

People often wonder how one feels
in battle. All men are not effected
alike. Seme are cool, determined and
courageous; some lose all judgment,
and will single handed rush upon hun

tremble like aspen, sr em dead to eve

and will slink into coverts cr run froiu

Fidi Hannr.iig' fcr Corn.
It is sometimes a question with far
mers whether they ought to apply ma
nure to land in the autumn, which they
intend to plantin corn or potatoes the
following spring letting it remain on
the surface through the winter. Fre
quently it is convenient to do so. Spring
is a hurrying season. Bains delay the
work ; mud hinders the drawing cf
manure. If they can keep it without
waste through the summer and fail,
adding meanwhile ingredients to swell
the bulk, and increase the richness,
they can draw and spread it iu the
winter, even when there ismore leisure.
But does it waste by being exposed
to the tl;mcto tlirnugil . tllC Winter?
We think not, chemically at least. It
may be washed or floated off from steep
l.ill sides, or flats liable to overflow.
But on level or moderatclv rolling land,
there is probably not only no waste in
applying the manure in the autumn or
winter, but it will benefit the crop
grown the nest season, much more than
if put on in the spring. Some of our
best farmers have adopted this practice,
and they find it to work well. How
can the manure waste ? Will any one
tell us ? As frequently no gases are
evolved to pars off. But it dri s, says
one-, when there is snow on the
ground, by the wind and frost. Draw
out a load of manure, and spread it
and in d;y it wiil not weigh more than
a quarter as much as when put on the
wagon. True, but what dries out of
it '! Water nothing else of value.
Dry straw is just as .enriching as vet
st: aw. it ! questionable even wncmor
barn -yard manure will lose any
fertilizing qualities if spread o

and exposed to the sun and winds till

ruhieient quantities to the plant, by
absorption through its leaves
The advantages of manuring on the
surface in the fall are great. Much of
the soluble part of the manure is taken
up by the water, and carried into the
soil, where it is ready for immediate
t:.-e by the following crop. If the en
suing summer be very dry, a coat of
ordinary baru-yard manure may not
materially beueiic corn, if put on iu
the spring just before plowing, from
the fact that it will not decompose, and
become available plant food, from want
of moisture early in the season. At
any rate if applied in the fall tho ma
nure would stimulate the corn quicker
than if put on late i:i the spring. If
it be et ground to which the manure
is applied, it will cause the grass to
sprout earlier and ranker thus furnish
ing considerable pasture tor sheep in
the spring, or the grass will be so much
gained in green mauure if turned un
der. We believe in manuring in the
fall. Clean the hog pens, scrape the
barn-yards, draw some muck, empty the
sinks, and withal prepare for uiakiti"
at.d saving manure during the winter,
so that noil autumn wiil find you with
a more ample supply than ever before.
