Farmer Chitty,
Plain but.gritty,
Came one day,
And he wandered,
And he pondered,
On-his way.
Thus while gazing
At amazing

He was taken

Who to right it,
And requite it,
Him invited
To a smile ;
And the farmer
To the former -

Soon elated,
And Inflated,
Chitty waited
For the deal :

Mr, Martin had Just come in to
tea. It was one of those sultry
summer evenings when the leaves
hang stirlessly on the trees, -and
the dull electric fires blaze along
the east, foreboders.of storm.
It had been very hot all the day,
the farm-hands had lagged at their
work on the lowland meadow, and
all the world's wheels seemed to re
volve as if they were weighted. Mr.
Miartin was very tired, and, Withal,
a little cross.
Perhaps Mrs. Martin was ired,
too. She, poor soul, had been tip
since four o'clock in the mngpnipg.
She had ygghed, takeit wae gf fo#P
c9w'g rnik, prepared three meals
t'or the hungry farm hands, been
up it. the quarry woods to search
t'or a family of adventurous young
turkey-chicks, soothed the.sorrows
of a teething baby, and mended up
the suit of clothes which Metsey'
Blim, the tailoress, had declared
not worth a needleful 6'*thread!I be
cause Thomas her husband, had
said that 'willful waste was wofol
want,' and that there -was a deal'of
wear in the suit yet, f ouilgtherk

Esther, sse f
all, the daril the-family circle
from which Mrs. Martin came-the
pet for whom they all had scraped'
and pinched so that she, at least,
might have a Boston education.'
And Esther sat in 1be window
seat, grown into.a blooiihing young
woman, with bronze-bown hair ly
ing in fluffy masse ov'er her fair
forehead, porcelain-blue eyes, and
a dress all trimmed with ribbon

enough for anybody. We must
economize in little things as well
as large ones, if we don't want to
end our days in the poor-house.'
And Mrs. Martin sorrowfully
obeyed, while Esther watched her
brother-in-law with large, grave
eyes, betokening inward surprise.
At the end of a week, Mr. Mar
tin addressed his sister-in-law with
serious purposes.
'Well Esther,' said he, 'you've
been here a week now.'
'A week is a good long visit,' re
marked Mr. Martin.
'It's long enough for some things'
said Essie.
'Mrs. Martin thinks she would
like to have you stay,' went on Mr.
Martin, after a puzzled glance at
the blue, shining eyes. 'And al
though, of course, every one adds
to the expense in a family like this,
I've no objections to giving you a
home, provided you are willing to
earn it by hard work. And-'
'Stop caried Essie, jumping up,
'I haven't asked you for a home
yet. And I don't mean to. And
you are only making me the offer
because Doctor Dorlan says Ruth
will break down unless she has a
strong maid-servant to help her
with the house-wovk. But there is
no money that would hire me to
make myself such a drudge as
poor Ruth is.'
Hoity-toity!' said Mr. Martin,
'Young woman, you don't consider
who yoti are talking to.'
'Yes, I do,' said Essie, with em
phasis. 'To 4 PIuebear4, to a
stock, a stone, a man who is grind
ing his wife's life out on the piti
less wheel of money-making. No,
I wouldn't live as Ruth does, not if
you would put me in a palace !'
Mr. Martin grew green and saff
ron by turns.
'Humph !' said he. 'Fine ideas
you got- at this fashionable board
ing school of yours, Well, if you
4n't like my oher, ou're not ob.
liged to accept it. Be a fine lady,
if'you please, and.see where it will
land you.'
By way of answer, Essie marched
out of the room with all the dignity
of a royal princess. She only
stopped in the kitchen long enough
to kiss Ruth, who was in the midst
of a baking.s
'Poor darling,' said she, 'Itow I
wish I could carry you off with me.
For stay, I won't !'
'Life is hard work, Essie,' said
Mrs. Martin, 'beginning to cry, in
spite of heself; 'and it's a woman's
duty to help her husband.'
: 'And I mean to help mae-when
I have one,' said Essie, blushing
brightly, 'But not by wearing my.
self out.'
Mr. Martin shook his head.
,If Stephen Smith is foolish
enough to marry that saucy gipsy,
she'll. lead him a pretty life,' said
he. 'I wonder if -she expects to sit
on a satin sofa all.her days with a
rose in her hand, and her hair
frizzled, in that preposterous fash
ion, all over, her eyes ?' But I warn
'em, they need never come .tg me
for help!i Esther has treated meo
wi$h $g9' mnch insolence for me
eyer to receive her again,
'I am sure she di i not mean any
thing,' said Mrs. Martin, apologet
"ell, then, her words belied her
meaning,' remarked Thomas Mar
tin, grimly compressing his lips.
But Stepheu*Smith was apparent
ly undawated -by the possibilities of
ruin predicted by Farmer Martin,
for he married Esther and went to
the city to live, within three
'I gaye 'em just a year to comne

all, Esther's my own sister.'
Mr. Martin's features contracted
into a hideous grimace. Of all the
bitter cups which circumstances had
held to his lips of late this was the
Buj it had to be swallowed,
There was no help for it.
'I didn't suppose Smith's folks
lived as genteel as this,' said he to
himself as a neat maid led him
across an octagonal vestibule, floor
ed with black and red marble, and
fragrant with flowers, under the
golden fringe of an antique por
tiere, into a large, tastefully-fur
nished room, where the singing
birds, the open piano, the low satin
sofa all betokened no lack of
Yes-Mr. Smith was at .efuge
He had not yet gone to the sloors.
and presently he came in, wavig u
welcomes to the man who had math
ried Essie's sister. .
'Lend yon a thousand dollars
said he. 'Of course we can lend
you a thousand dollars. What is
money fol if not to help each other
with. Oh, yes. We've a snug lit

glancing at the soft arabesques of,
the carpet, the graceful folds of the
crimson silk curtains, and the ease;
filled with proof engravings. 'That
is my wife's doing,
s ?' said Mr. Martin, staring
around him.
'Yes,' said Smith, with a certain,
quiet satisfaction. 'Essie is an ar
tist, you know-a designer. She
invents patterns for the paper han

Essie as he respected her now."
'She has money laid up,' said
Stephen Smith, 'And if she's the
girl I think she is,'she won't
grudge it to help her sister's hus
band in a pinch.
Gall and bitterness-gall and
bitterness ! But, thought poor Mar
tin with. a sign,.how was Stephen
to know all that was come and
gone ?
Essie's light step, on the passage
way, sounded at this instant; and
she came in, dressed in a pictures
que brown linen blouse; her hair
still shading her forehead. like
a fringe of floss silk, after the old,
graceful fashion.
'Yes,' she said brightly, when her
brother-in-law's errand was stated
to her; 'Of course you shalhliave it.
I owe you as much as that, I think'
Thomas, were it only to ease from
your memory that last scene of our
parting. How defiant and insolent
it was, to-be-sure!l' and she laugh
ed the sweetest of mellow laughter.
'But I insist upon it tiill, that my
theory was correct; a woman can
work, without becoming a drudge.'
'Perhaps she can;' alowly and
unwillingly admitted Thomas Mar
tin-'perhaps she can-! But it didn't
use to be so, in my mother's days
And he sighed to think of poor
Ruth, broken down in the meridian
of her days, by the and necessities
that drive the wife of an Amerncan
farmer to her doom, Was it-his
own fault ? Perhaps it was.

There are some sects.. of Ar.

Kentucky, are,, far removed from
the active enforcement of the reve

are respected, and even that part of
the national staitnte which does not

suggestions concerning the occupa

by the natives as, not "all right,"
