"Thank you," said Etta coldly. "Din

A Stubborn Stripling.
A big stripling, fresh from Vermont,
once entered the Dummer Academy, at
Byfield, Mass. At that time the boys and
girl? were kept in one apartment, only the
middle aisle separating them. One day
this Vermont stripling who had just beeu
helping one of the girls through a hard
sum, thought it not more than light that
he should take toll for hid servicesjaccord
mgly he threw his stalwart arm around the
rosy damsel and gave a 6ly but rousing
smack, which startled the whole assembly.
"Jedediah Towser, come up here!" roared
The delinquint appeared; hU face with
blushes, like red hot warming pan and
looking as silly as a rainny. "Hold out
vour hand, sir!" said the pedagogue. "I'll
teach you not to act thus in thia institu
tion." The huge paw was extended in a hori
zontal line towards the instructor, who
surveyed its broad surface with a mathe
matical eye calculating how many strokes
of his small ferule it would take to cover
the large number of tquare inches it con
tained. "Jedediah" at length he said, "this is
the first time you havo been called up for
any delinquency; now, sir, if you say you
are sorry for what you have done, 1 will
let you off this time without punishment!"
"Sorry," exclaimed the youngster, stri
king an attitude of pride and indiguation;
"sorry! No, Sir I am not, and 1 will do
it again if you whip me jest as hard as you
like. By the Jnmpin Jehcsiphat, I'd stand
here ami let you lick me till kingdom kum
afore I'd be sorry at that."

THE ARKANSAS TRAVELER.
j In the early settlement ot Arkansas, a
traveler, after riding some ..eight or ton
miles without meeting a human being, or
seeing a human habitation, came at length,
by a sudden turn out of the wood road, to
araiaerable "shanty," the centre of a small
clearing, in what had originally been a
"Black-jack thicket," whence the only
sound that proceeds is the discordant mu
sic of a broken-winded fiddle, from the
troubled bowels of which the occupant is
laboriously extorting the monotonous tune
known aa "The Arkansas, or liackenaack
Traveler." Our traveler ridoa up within
aweet of th.e door, whicU. onee tho
bed frame oTa cart body, now covered with
bear skins, and hung upou two biji wooden
hinges. . After much shouting, the inmate
appears, fiddle in hand, and evidently
wratby at being interrupted in tho exercise
of his art. The following colloquy ensues,
the indefatigable fiddler still playing the
first strain of "Tha Arkansas Traveler"
which fact he continues, at sudden inter
vals, until the dialogue, as will be seen, is
brought to an unexpected conclusion. If
this be not "seeking lodgings under diffi
culties," we should like to know what
might be legitimately so considered.
Traveler: "Friend, cau I obtain ac
commodations for the night with you?"

getting dinner yesteiday, until my heart
ached for him; and llieii those tiiesome
callers! 1 believe I w ill never step out of
the house again, and then no one will eome
here, and I can live like a hermit, and work
all the time." And the seething waters
robe higher through the outlet of hard
thoughts, until they swept overall remem
brance of the patient forbearance that he
had often manifested toward her in the
three years of their married life.
"But it won't do to sit hero. 1 have
these dishes to wash, and pies to make,
and dinner to gel, and Willie to take care
And so Mrs. Weston wiped her eyes,
and began to clear up the table, but every
thing went wrong, the tears that brought
no relief kept coming, and blinded her,
and hindered her in all she attempted to
perfuim. One plate was broken from a
valued 6et, and a large grease spot made
on the floor, and the fire woald not burn,
and no kindlings. "1 should think hus
band ought to remember some of his own
short-comings," said she, almost aloud, as
she took up a knife, and tried to whittle a
few shavings. "I guess 1 could complain
if I pleased." And the lips closed light
over the white, pearly teeth, spoiling a
leally pretty mouth, that seemed made for
a model of beauty.
But the dieariest hours will drag away
at last. At a quarter to twelve, the table
was set, and the ham and eggs ready, the
rituhliups and notatoes baked for ho
shou'd not have reason, to complain of his
diinier, she had bitterly 6aid to herself a
hall dozen times iu the course of tho fore
noon and the pies made, and she ready
to receive him in a very becoming attire,
with her hair braided over her white fore
head in wavy folds, and her bright eyes
gleaming with a glance that slole up from
the hearth-fires within, that ever should
burn in a loving, affectionate wife's breast.
"I am sorry 1 spoke eo," thought Mr.
Weston, as he stepped off the door-6tep,
"for Etta is a good wife, and it is seldom
that I have reason toxiomplain; but 1 did
want a good breakfast this morning, ana
I felt ci oss about it. I will buy her that
book she was speaking about the other
day, and make her a present ol it; aim l
hope it will make amends for my unkind
ness. And with that comforting resolu
tion Mr. Weston threw aside the slight
rankling remorse that had disturbed hiai,
and whistled and 6ang at his work as cheer
fullyas usual, forgetful of his grieved wife,
who was pondering over and resenting his
"Hero is the book, Etta, that you were
speaking about," said Mr. Westou, as he
6lepped into the dining-room punctually
intr back like a flood came all tho recol
lections of the hour she gave it to him.
It was a fair summer's night, and the
bright moonlight stole in through the
clinging vine, and carpeted the floor with
bilver lines. The whispering, sighing
breeze shook the fragrant rose-leaves at
their feet, and lifted the curls from her
cheek wet with tears.
"Just one curl, dear Etta, to gaze upou
when I am far away." And the ringlet
was severed, and sweet kisses pressed
upon her cheek again and again at that
sad parting hour.
Again and again were they pressed
upon her cheek as memory opened wide
her book, and brought the past close to
view. The wakeful night watches amid
the howling storm, the fitful dreams of a
walerv crave for him she loved better than
words could tell, the anxious waiting for
letters and joyful reunion after months of
separation, nil rose up before her with the
vividness of life.
And had this cherished earthly treas
