Il was Sunday morning) &. according to the
time-honored rustom.lhe bride ought to make
her appearance at church in all her wedding

had duly prepared I leru.elvei and their toilets
for the important occasion,

"Then you are not going 10 appear at ujitirch

comn euced rutting the cold boiled ham j

"Why do you think so, my dear!" inquired
he unconsciously, proceeding ly-put a delic te

-Y?." answered Caroline, smiling also, &
at the same lime blushing a little.
-Your lath.-r ui.d I are certainty going to
church, but we do not see why we should
make a luss about it. We go just a we

"Then you do n't mean to sit for company I" 1

Mr. Sellers, after a pause, dm Ing which thry

"Not much, I conress," Isabella replied
"One reads these things so habitually, that
they fail to impress us w ith any definite no

"I am very sparing in my reading of this
kind. A lew verses at a time are .11 t hut I

a short spate, and, when 1 re-open it, these
beautilui precepts come upon me with the
power und force of new ideas. Did you ever
try to take then, literally, und u'-t upon them!"
"No," aaid Isabella; "I was never taught
to do so. Indeed. I wits always told that many
of them were impossible to be taken literal

do you mean to put on, mamma, mine?"
"You little fOoliah girl, cull me Martha at
