Knives, setting of scissors, ana patching

It was-more than a lortnigLt after they
had left London, tbatthey reached the end
of their ionrney, a quiet village down in
LeiceRtenshBTe. To Kittj's mnbounded as-
toqishmeut, her graudfather had left tbe
grinding machine at their halting place the
uight before. He too, had dressed hint
4f in whut Kitty caUed his Snnday clothe
and h.r.fl produced from the bundle a eras
for herself, which sna had never seen be
fore, made of a light gray atuff. with -bkie
shonlder-knots. Greatly bad Kiltty exult
ed and danced over this srv finery, bat
was rather sudbdaed and grieved when ahe
was told that she was not to pat them on
until thernext evening. ."However, bhe wns
die -ted m what- had previously been her
best frock, ahe was content to wait, and
was indeed delighted when ht t grandfath

go in a carriage yes, a real carriage. . .

my little grand-daughter for two days.
"Yes, sir, we have a private room.; Have

The eonyersatioa lasted sometime long
er, and then Mr. Merrion took his leave,
and then went tigbt borne, without, to
Mrs. Matin's diaappointmenfe revealing one
word of what had taken place at the long
and mysterious interview. -
The next evening Sir John Batron was
sitting alone after his dinner. A tall state
ly man, bnt with niark. of deep sorrow
npon his face. A proud, reserved man,
the world said, and in his youth no doub
truly; a reserved man still, but scarcely a
nroud one. At tbe present moment Sir
John was wondering over the behavior of
his butter, John Merrion, at dinner. John
was ordinary one of the most staid and re
spectful of domestics, but John, had be
haved, throncbout dinner ln a manner
quit oulike bintself. If each a thing bad
not been out of .the question, be sbonld
have said that John-Merrion was drunk.
Be had broken two glasses, be had spilled
the wine in filling up big glass, and the
man's eyes were certainly full of fears. His
inaxtnr a.-ked bim what be was tbe mattrr.
ud ha had replied. "Nothing, Sir John?"
bnt of course something was tne .matter;
although, as the tuotmau was in the room
Sir John had passed tho.. matter otcr.c .Sir
John now turned it over in bis mind. John
Merrion had been a widower for years, and
bis only son was now bead groom, for
hat s one of his children was ill. Sir John
had heard nothibg of it, bnt he thought he
wonld ring and as.' At this maintnt he
door opened a little and tbe sound of a
man. crying was distinctly beard tbrongh
it, and then the baronet thought be- was
dronmiug, whena-cbiai-with long, golden
bair. with a tdnenbbon rouud ber beatL
with up towards aim, witb.RU air half Urn
id; yet frank and eonfideat, ' and patting
ber cand in bis. said:
Please,-grandpa, my name is Kitty Bar
ton, and I am come to' stay with yon and
love yon. .Please, this is papa likeness
and a letter." . , - " ' x
And she held ont a gold locket, and a
letter - directed in the well resenibv-red
handwriting of his dead 3on. . .. v-v
For a moment the baronet at s:. h h
lest. Then with a cry of "Thank God,
th ink God for his tLtrcv - he canght the
child np and held her to bis heart, while
his tears rained down, npon ber annnj
nead.--- ' ' '
Don't cry, grandpaf dont orv," she
said, presently beg ining to sob herself at
tbe sight of bus amotion. - "If grandpa

"K my child; I am. not. sorry; I am
prly very thanklal joa have come. .
Kittv looked up a little doubtfullvr' i
"Kitty revet cries when she ft clad," ahe
said; -"she ery when she hurt herself."
For sometime the baronet held her close
ly in his arms, kissing her: then, when he
became ealmef, he put ber down on tbe
rug before the fire, placed the letter and
portrait by to be examined when no else
could see him, and rang the bell. John
Merrion entered, bis eves red with crying.
"You knew of this, John?V - -' -"-"Yes.

Ah; indeed, John? thank Godr and

"Now, John, send the . other servants

I -v'Vfew minutes thy entered. They
' all heard from" the"bntler what had
bn;p?ned, -and many of .them who V.d
known their late young master were wip
ing their eyes as they entered. -1 ?
. "Listen,- all of you," the baronet tid,
with, a proud joy. . . vThis . young lady ia

Several of tho eMf Women came toward
and kissed Kitty, who was ratter alarmed
at all this; and the bowsekeeper said, "Will
yon come, my dearie?" ? V"' 4
"No, thank yon," Kitty answered, tak
ing liht hold of iha. baronet's hand;..!-!
would rather stay -avtth grandpa."-..-
When tbey had all left tbe reHu. - Kitty
took her seat on a footstool at Sir John Bar
ton's feet, and looked gravely into the fire;
while the baronet stroked her hair quiet
ly, and had difficulty in persuading him
self it was all true. Presently Kitty spoho.
'What big firev grand pal I never saw
enrb a big fire, and it is hardly eold at all.

It is a large r jom, Kitty, and you see

Kitty opened her eyes a little widorven '
than nsnal,- and remained some 'time in
thought The result of her reflection show
ed itself in her next speech, r . -
"Please, grandpa, Kitty- is hungry; she
would like some supper." --.

"Kitty doesn't know," she said, rather
dontitfully.. "Kitty never tasted .chicken.
Will it have its feathers on?" . . , . .
"No", Ki tr, . the feathers are" all taken

. '"Sometimes Kitty has had sausages for

"hot, .geaknow; and grandpa, yoa know,

Tha baronet's' brow crouded for a mo
ment at the mention of this other relation
of his grandchild; and then he said kindly:
Waetveryiind toyou? Did yon love
him very much, your ether grandpa?" -
"Kitty love him so muck," . the child
said holding out her arms; " bigger much
bigger; he so kind to Kitty,' Poor grand

The baronet fell by his own joy at fino

Kitty nodded very decidedly this time.
"Kilty got two dolls; one new, only legs
broken; old one got uo bead.
"I wtll get you big new one, Kitty, and
a dotl a noaser ana a-.Noah a ark and au
sorts of toys."
Kitty's eves opened wide" in astonish
ment at all this wealth of things which whs
Ito pour in upon her. Bat farther conver

ler -with the tray. ' John Merrion put the
things on the tableland then, in some perplexity,-
placed a chair, and pnt a cushion

The bexnet was deeply affected.

At ten o'clock the' nexe -day the knife

John Barton. The men -bad never seen
each other before, and eaoli bad cherished
a desp feeling of Wrong against the other.
Befor a word was spoken, each looked

Material of the Prussian Army.
- MrHalstead writes to the CUicinaati
Commercial: Nearly all the officers and a
great many of the private soldiers have
highly fotelligeot faces. More fine speci
mens of 'splendid ' manliness six-footers,
every joint in tbe right place,-coat and
branches fHu of good, muscle can oe se
leutd.froma regiment of -these soldiers
than from a like number of any soldiers I
hava seen, with, perhaps, the exception of
Sherman's army a it marckei through
Washington after the surrender of Lee.
About the German offloers of the line
thre is a good deal of fie "German stu
dent's style. They " have not been
campaigning - yet long ' enough to
be thoroughly . sunburnt, ; and -many of
lueoi .wear apeotaclea - a -oyevglanoeat
and their clothes are-eutwilh-.that precis
inu for which Parisian tailors have a repu
,:i ion unwaranted by their achievements.
They are young men, well made hun
dreds ot them would be sensations in a
ball robin. Each.of them carries(Iepeak,
of coursa, of tbe officers on foot) an oil
bkin knapsack, a flask, and a water-proof
tout Iu this rig, with their swords io
their bands, as the musie strook op on the
march - through , Pont-a-Mausson, . they
walked proudly beside the big boys who
carried, tha needle-guns, stepping in per
fect time with the musie,- which was often
as'magnlficont and thrilling as was ever
blown through tha horn of war, joining
tbe soldiers in their triumphant singing.
There are" sad faces among tho soldiers,
and pathos in their thoagblfulaesa, when
the Harries of exoitement are over, but the
prevailing expression is one of the most
serious and dangerous resolution. Tbey
are stalwart and hearty, round beads, eyes
f ir apart, cheeks tawny and run, months
qiara and rigged with teeth sufficient Tor
all the bard bread that can be baked by the
contractors of Germany. Their bearing is

How to frunt- 'ihm ir tlie serond ques
tion, and one that is answered so variously '
by writers on grape growing, and is talked ,
of so oppositely by viyneron that aa an- . (
swer in any way will be said by some to be
assnming; but hsving studied the grape " '
rrctty thoroughly, and baving read every
treatise of which we have ever heard, and -,
practiced, or observed the practice, of each
writer, we feel that what we say of "How -to
Prune," if practiced, will result in sue.
eefs to the proprietor of the vine on which
it is performed. . ,
Each variety almost, win,afl9r"tbe first
two years, require a -distinct "system so
that any general rule for grape pruning of - -
onr vin8 w6uld full to the ground if at- ' ...
t-mpted to be prctuiL- The grape grow
er must first learn tha babit and character -of
his variety, and then be can adapt its . ,
pruning and training to a modo or system
consonant with its class. -
But of "How to Prune," let as say, first.-- 1
that summer pruning thai, is, cutting
away of foliage after the blossom bas open
ed is now counted, byth-3 majority of
rigHtron. as an error; and the reason for
tue error isl that each leaf -and end a a "
shoot bia a eorrefcue-ndirtg counectlosi with
tbe spongioles or feeding ends of the roots, - ;
and once the leaf or ehoot connecting , .
therewith is broken, the soongiole rootlet
or feeding month is affected. is closed "
from its natural action, and, a .a eonse- .
quenoe, rot and dcsy ensue. Treating- at
the toot of tha vine, a fungoid disease ' "
hicb. if the same system of summer trim .. ;
ming were persiiited in, would, in a few
yoars, result in apparent outwnrd disaae: ' '
of the vine, and ia lot and mildew of the w 1
fruit. . , ..1 ' ..-..
Having said this much of summer pruc-
mg. let us now suppose yon nave a vine -planted
this pabt spring. And you nave per-w 1
mittcd it as you should, to grow, just as ; .-
,niany or just as few shoots or vines as it

This first season all vines may be aeoept-
ably pruned in this way; but when the , , . ,
growth in spring comes, it behooves the '
grower to know bis vine aud bis' soil. ' For 1 " ?
while aCencord, Hartford, or Norton, etc., '

suppose one inquirer proposes to grow bis ; .- '
cuttings in the open ground as the rage s . . , ,
and profit of growing grape roots in forc
ing ho usee baa bad ita day, and forsed . . :
many a man iu debt for yeara. .' Then we
have only to say to him, that ony well ri- J
pened wood eut with two eyea on it is, all ; -
that is requisite; and yet we confess a pen- t
chant for tho old style of mallet cutting. It -' '
differs from the former only in tha tact that . r
it ia made with an inch or less of tne old
wood attached to the base in t he-cutting, -
and in tbat attachment or base, or crown, ,j;

Keepixq Obafes Fbesh. There are sev- "
era! practical modes: Oue is to pick the ?
grapes just before dead ripe, while they f
are perfectly free from surface moisturw,' '.
and immediately seal with wax the end ef . ' . f
the stem, or any place wbere a grape a as ,
been removed. Now place in boxes with r '
cotton- batting, a layer of fruit between . -T ,,:
biyers of batting, so that one cluster snau
not touob another; cover closely and keep '
in a cool dry place. Those who have put ; , . ,
down fruit in this way say. toat mey cams
out fresh in the spring. It must be re-
mnmbered not to let the fruit come m con- '
tact with the wood of the box. --.",.
Another method, and one which is very
effectual in keeping gmpes- fresh during -
winter is, to pick as before direetett, keep - . .
the.m in a cooL dry place three or four
days, then pack in paper boxes which will
hold ten or twilve pounds eacn, placing a
sheet of pspor between each layer, keep in :"
a cool dry room not in a collar. Not
more than three layers of grapes should be
allowed in a box. , . .
