March IS Svv
"And sure, ma'am, will yez be afther
letting Miss Susy come round to Mrs.
Kelly's the night? It's the pretty Kit
tie's" wedding party, and it's meself
was toid to ax yez."
The spokeswoman was Irish Kath
leen, the faithful village washerwoman,
and Mrs. Kelly was one of iier steady
employers whom she rearuea with
great respect and admiration.
. For, though now the wife of a rich
and prosperous farmer, she did not
tnru the cold shoulder to Kathleen, who
had como over from Ireland in the
same ship with her. Ou tho contrary,
"the Kellys, one and all, made much of
the honest woman.
"Please lot me go, mother," said Su
sy, a pretty vivacious maiden of six
teen, who clapped her hands gleefully
at tho thought." "You've no idea what
fun it is to oe at the Kellys when they"
have a merry-making. You know you
lot me go once before. Don't you re
member Jt was when they gave a
wedding to one of their farm hands."
"Sure, Miss Susy, yer mother must
bring yt z over herself, and then she'll
sec what good cheer a true son of the
'green sod' will give to his friends. But
I musn't stand hero and wag my
tongue. I must be ou tho way to get a
supner for my ould man and tho chil
der.'" As soon as Kathleen was out of sights
Susy aid coaxingly:
"May I go, motller? Harry will tako
me over, and then he can stay and see
what an Irish merry-making is like. It
will do him good, and take some of the
primness out of him. I've been won
dering ever since lie came if he had any
fun in him."
"For shame, Susy, to speak so slight
ingly of your cousin. Remember,
please, that he has carried oil' the high
est honors of his class this year, and
that he has beeu ordered here by his
physician to recruit his health."
busy tossed her head.
"We were his relatives before this
sumnior, weren't we mother? I don't
caro much for cousins who only come
to see us because they are ordered to
the country 'for their health.' "
"I am sorrv, Cousin Susy." said a
quiet voice behind her, "but was I to
know what I was missing, by slaying
away? 1 assure you that it shall not oc
There was a gleam of mischief in
Harry's brown eyes as he said this; but
Susy was too much taken aback at hav
ing her speech overheard to look at
"Susy says a great many things she
does not mean. Harry; so you musn't
pay any attention to lier thoughtless
"And Susy says a good many things
she docs mean," putTin the said Susy;
"and one of them is 'May Harry escort
me over to the Kelly Farm?' "
And she looked at Harry with a mer
ry smile; her momentary discomfiture
vanishing as suddenly as it had come.
"That will be just as Harry says,
Siisv. I will trust you to his care wlll
"Ilarry saysGo,' don't you, cousin?
You will miss ft if j'ou don't"
"I am at your service, Cousin Susy.
But you must promise to post me a lit
tle as to iiow t" behave."
Again a merry sparkle flashed into
tho usually crave eyes of the j'oung
collegian. But Susy auswered in good
"All you have to do is to sit still and
see the lads and lasses take partners
for the dances, and to keep from laugh
ing at them."
"I don't suppose iy.i'ould bo proper
for me to get up and dl.nce too?
"You dance an Irish jig? I would
give the world to see you try it!"
"You shall be gratified, and for loss
than 'tire world that i-., if you would
promise to give me some reward lor
"Of course I will. But I will tell
you beforehand tiiat my posessions aro
none of tliem very valuable."
"Oae doesn't always care for expen
sive things. What you value very
lightly, I might hold very precious."
"Then it is a bargain. " To think of
my serious college cousin dancing an
Llrish iitr!"' And a ripple of merry
laughter sounded from Susy's red lips
as she left the room.
Early evening found the cousins on
their way to the Kelly Farm.
The round moon, l;ko a globe of sil
ver light, was just visible above the
horizon as they reac'ied the long, low,
In the daytime it was not a particu
larly romantic looking place; but it
now received a glamour from the un
certain light which mellowed down
all uncouth angles, and "DfougnTinto
prominence the rural surroundings.
The tail rounded havmows looked
like giant bee-hives, and the few trees
which had been held sacred from tho
ax on account of their age, waved their
quivering silver-tinted leaves a rust
ling welcome to the new comers, who
were sufficiently romantically 'inclined
to thus construe it
As is oftcu tho case with prosperous
farmers, the barn was upon a much
larger-scale than the house, and it had
been thoroughly cleansed and made
gay with rural decorations.
Many hands hSd been busy within it,
as Kittie's wedding was a matter of
great interest to all the young folks
who had been born and" brought up
near her homo.
Susy was not native born to tho
neighborhood, so she was outsido tho
charmed circle; but none the less was
she welcomed and made much of, tho
very fact that she had but lately begun
to learn the mysteries of country life
adding io the interest with which she
Harry also received a cordial recep
tion, and, much to Susy's surprise, ho'
entered so heartily into the fun, and
made himself so entertaining, that
wherever he was there was sure to bo

But the grand fliuile of enjoyment

the extreme end of the huge barn,

lieve you would hesitate at anything,
Harry. So uou't mako a pretenco of
beinr shy in putting forward your
claim. 1 really believe I do not know
you at all! I have thought you to be so
quiet without a bit of fun in you!"
Susy spoke half in fun, but still there
was a ring of truth in what she said.
Harry certainly had a two-sided char
acter, lie could bo very serious, and
he could be very merry. Had she not
seen it with her own eyes?
"Then, Susy, 1 will at once say what
I want, and, as you arc bound in honor
to give it to me. you may as well pay
your debts at once. I claim a kiss from
as my pay for well-doing."
Susy coiml hardly believe the
dence of her eyes.-
, :kisg! tho saucy audacious fellow!
For an instant she was indignant.
Then her woman's wit came to the res
cue, and tho angry Hash died out of

a reward, CousinHarr3," she said de
murely; "but as I did not set any spec

"Well, here wc are at home, so wo

to me when to-morrow comes. Cousin
Susy. I don't like to be called a 'por-

"lhen don t deserve it. '
"Good-night, Susy." And Harry
held out his hand.
But Susy did not tako it This new
Harry must be kept at a distance.
"Good-nikr," she said, disappear
ing up the dimly-lighted stairway.
Harry looked after her with a smile
hovering about his lips.
"What a little darling sho is," he
thought, "and how neatly she got out
of giving mc a kiss! But I'll have it
yet It will be all the STreeter for the
difficulty of getting it"
But after this Susy's manner chang
ed. Instead of treating Harry with tho
sisterly frankness and freedom which
had heretofore characterized their in
tercourse, sho became as shy as a wood
thrush. Harry was rueful enough at the
change. Susy seemed to him tho beau
ideal of everything that was good and
lovely, and lie feared that ho had of
fended her irrevocably.
Had he been bettor skilled in tho
workings of a woman's iieart ho might
have drawn a different inference from
her resolute avoidance of his society.
Time lied away on rapid wings, "and
at last brought the day of Harry's de
parture. He no longer wore the pale listless
look which had characterized him when
ho first came: but was as ruddy aud
strong-looking as the veriest country
lad in the neighborhood; and he looked
handsomer than ever when he sought
Susy to bid her good-bye.
He found her in therustic summer
house, which was her favorite resort
when she wished either to read or write
or to be alone with her thoughts.
There was a slight flush about her
eyes, which showed that tears had been
makiug au unwonted visit to them.
But she forced a bright smile as sho
He put out his hand, and with tho
parting hand-clasp which he gave to
her cold little fingers, said:
"Good-bye, Cousin Susy, and try to
forgive me for the offense which has
made me such a tabooed sinner in your
eyes of late.
"Please look upon it as a jest which
shall not again bo referred to. For if I
have one wish dominant above all oth
ers in my mind, it is that I may livo
pleasantly in your remembrance."
"I shall never do anything but think
kindly of you, Cousin Harry," said Susy-
Hnd Harry been sufficiently master
of his own emotions to study Susy's
face, he would have nolicc'd that a sus
picious quiver threatened the contin
uance of the forcod smile upon her lips,
audthat tears were just ready to over
flow their fringed boundaries.
But with this cold formal good-bye he
expected to leave her. So he turned
and walked away.
When the gate clanged to, and Susy
felt sure that he had gone, she had no
longer need for self-possession, and she
threw herself forward, and covered her
face w'th her hands, moaning:
"Oh, Harry, I ennnot beaiMt! I have
treated you so dreadfully, and I am
sure I shall never, never set eyes upon
your face again. I shall never, never
see you. You will think of me only to
hate me. Oh dear, oh dear!"
Thus she ran on, unheeding what
was passing about her. The gate had
been reopened, and Harry was hasten
ing back; but she look no notice, so
absorbed was siio in sorrow and self
reproach. "Susy, crying!" came from his lips
in surprised accents.
Then, with a sudden joyful light in
liis eyes, he sprang forward and ex
claimed: "Are von sorry that I am going
away? I was toogrcatrr. coward lo-stty
what I felt, Susy, but I have como back
to risk it I cannot think of my future
unless yon share it Will vou promiso
to be my little wife? I love vou so dear-
by that it must be you don't hate me as
you have made believe.
"Hate you! Oh. Harry," sobbed Su
sy; and then and there the happy lover
possessed himself of both principal and
interest of the debt he claimed from
How many kisses he took wo daro
not say. But Susy made no rcsist
tnce, for was it not'a just claim?

A Cruel Father.
Near New London, Conn, a gray
hoaded old man, the proprietor of a
small farm slocked with one misara
bio old cow, has been forcing a-thir
teen year old boy to do the work of a
grown man and denied him the pri
velege of the school. The most
trivial failure in his duties by the
boy would be treated with brutal
punishment, and the little fellow's
body was found to be black, blue and
red. A faw days ago the lad did
not please tho old man in attending
to the cow. The father had a hand
cuff forged for the child's wrist and
manacled him with a chain to the
cow's horn. Then he drove, the boy
and cow out on the bleak hillside
in face of the winter gale, and left
them together without food all d.y.

Stories of Blasphemy, -
The story is fold of an old man
near Philadelphia, Pa., who, witii
twelve hundred spirits, was tak
ing supper the other evening at a
hotel. He was asked to oiler 'a
prayer, which being u lound and
blatant contemner of religio.i, he
did, provoking by his burlesque,
the laughter of those present.
When it was noticed that thirteen
were present at the table some
one said that it was "the last
supper." Soon after the old man
uttered an oath so terrible and
blasphemous that it shocked even
his comrades. Suddenly he grew
pale, complained of great pain,
exclaimed, "I'm afraid it's 3IY
last supper, aliter all,'5 and went
home sufl'ering severely, and feel
ing as if he had been struck a
heavy blow upon the head. The
next morning he was found dead

About 100 years ago a profli
gate English nobleman named
Lord Sandrich belonged to a
company of young fellows like
himrelf, who lived in a deserted
abbey and caricatured with blas

religious service which used to
be performed there. At one of
these orgies Sandrich invoked
the devil, and to the horror of
himself and comrades that per
sonage leaped from an old chest,
and, after running about, jumped
upon the nobleman's shoulders,
who fainted with fear. It was
soon discovered that the "devil"
was a baboon that had been hid

liberated by John Wilkes, who
afterwards made, like Bradlaugh,
an obstinate fight for a seat in

to a company at 6iipper a young

ridiculed him by pointing his fin

Welsh charged the company to
take heed and see what the Lord
would do to him who had mock

the man died.

Mr. N. J. Shepherd says that far
mers should always be careful to use
only good seed for potatoes. With
everything favorable you may
sometimes raise a good crop from
poor seed, but this is only the case
when the general crop has been
plentiful and the prices low, while,
by using the best of seed, giving it
good soil to grow in, and good e'ean
cultivation, you are reasonably sure
of a good crop when others fail, and
as there is then received a higher
price the result is more profitable.
