HANS LUDWIG'S DAUGHTERS;
How Harry White got his Wife,
: In the interior of the good old State
of Pennsylvania, where the medieval
customs of classic Germany are still
in vogue, there dwelt a fanner yclept
Xudwig Kramer, whose ancestors,
601110 score or two ol'year9 agone, had
cleared and rescued lrom a savage
wild the capital farm upon which he
Ludwig rejoiced in tho proprietor
ship ol two daughters young, buxom,
und well favored and in the old
Plan's opinion, they wero the no plwt
ultra of. rural damsels; and whether
they would make good wive9, he would
bo a fortunate man who might get
.them. Blanche was the elder und
prettier of the two, but Katrino was
the old man's pet, und cither of them
in agricultural matters, as tho father
said, was worth ''shust one titfen hired
"Yankees," for they could dig or ptant
Kit hoe potatoes, curry and tenu the
'horses, milk and stable the cows, pick
geese, and, in fact, Were adepts in al
. most any department in farnjirjg af
It was in the antnmn of '48, that
jLudwig was elected trustee of the
school district in which ho dwelt, and
- if you had been iu Alusquito Valley
about that period, you might have
'seen a Dutch farmer in ecstauies such
,as your optics cannot often witness;
tor our friend was not only trustee, but
by unanimous consent of the "board"
was appointed examiner of all candi
dates for the important station of tea
cher of the rising geiieraton in thy
district, at twelve dollars and a halt' a
month, including Saturdays. We'll
omit any account of the great feast
given by Lndwig in honor of his elec
'tioti to office; and we won't specify
bow many hundred quarts of cider
-were drank, how many ehickens were
deprived of their heads, or tell of the
'.consumption of smearkase, apple pie,
.butter, sour kruiit, or doughnuts be

White wa3 a Springfield,' Mass., boy,
who had. abandoned his homo and
friends in consequence of the disgrace
attendant upon his expulsion lrom Col
lege, for the crime of sticking a Urge
cat into the valve of the college pump,
and thereby causing the water to be
come putrid, to the great annoyance of
the faculty and janitors. A harsh
6teiKJather also caused Harry to dread
returning to his heme, and with no
othrrcercmony than an afiL-ctionate let
ter to his mother, bo wandered away
until he found himself settled for 6ix
uionts iu the situation we have ;des-cr'thud.":-
. ' '
The ? tall work" being completed on
J.iiuwig's farm.his daughters, Blanche
and Katrine, of course, attended school
"week about," one being compelled
to remain at home to attend to do
ineBticdutios; bnt it was evident to
Harry that tho old man had some de
sign in bis cranium, for one evening
after be finished bis cider, and smok
ed his pipe, ho said to Harry,
"You shust don't mind mo, I goes
early to roosht,you fcin shtay np shust
H9 long us you want to.'-'; 1
Just then he beard 'Katrine calling
him from an inner room, and he going
as she desired found a cheerful tire
blazing and crackirjg away on the
hearth, a big pile of wood in- reserve
. . . ... . , i
jwas abundance of room invited him
to pliiiro her seat. 1 . . '.'
I Harry wag a shrewd fellow, and
slightly in lovo with Blanche, tho el
der sister, who, it Rooms, old Ludwig
'had sent oft' to' bed;' bnt' as ho after
I ward's told me, thinking half a loaf
j was better than no bread, Iio accepted
J tho invitation, and ' seated himself by
jher side; '. In a short time they
1 wero in close conversation, and Harry
1 finding her chubby . arm . wis encir
cling Ills coat collar' could do rjo;lesa
than spau her waist with bis' arm:
and without permitting her tb'scd'tho
drift of bis remarks, he found by in
igonious questioning that the 'old far
mer, was worth about thirty thousand
dollars in sfocks, besides two 'good
farms worth about the same sum, and
'that her sister Blanche was. engaged
jtobc married to a neighboring farmer
:and that tho ceremony was to come
,011' in a few weeks. '
! It was late that night when Harry,
retired to bed, but as ho lay watching
the moon, he formed a resolution, tbe
! result of, which we shall unfold. But
the next week was P.lancho'stnrn to at-1
I tend school, and when removed i'rom
i her father's scrutiny, sho seemed ful
ily to appreciate the good looking phiz
and comely figure of the preceptor,
and he was equally assiduous in his
I attention to her studies; and in conse
quence, when her rustic lover came in
'to take his turn in tho old back' par-J
lor, the big lire and double arm chair,
j Blanche's head was so full of the go.nl
! looking school master that the fcuityr
j received very little attention, and gen
erally took his leave in a very pig
gish manner, bull the pedagogue re
tained Lis position in Katrine's good
"races, while tho old man declared
, he was "Hie shlickest poy vot ever
'come to Musquito Valley; mit more
j prains as ter brcecber, und more sense
'as ter doctor." At length Harry as
' ceitaining from Katrine that tlio pro
posal would bo favorably received,
; boldly asked old 'Ludwig for her
"You wants mine Katrine, docs
yon?"' ... ' ,', '
" Yv9,ii', I tli'mU can inako her a
good husband." " ' ' - '
'Well, don, yon ehnsfe liftcfritj)"(Or

"Hurrah for a fann!" says Harry to
himself, "and a lot of spoons," and
bidding tho delighted Blanche,, 'with
whom ho had an understanding, to bo
prepared the next morning lor her
wedding, he went to Katrine, with a
mournful visage to tell her that their
marriage would have to bo postponed
for a few days in consequence of the
squire's absence, which wjis.of course,
a fabrication of bis own. In the grey
of the morning tbe next day; old Hans,
the baldfaced horso was hitched np,
and Harry, with fair Blanche)1 were
soon, streaking along at a goou ronnu
trot lor tin . to urn sqniro's- house,
some five miles distant, and as ,'tliey
drove up to tho honso, that: worthy
issued trom tno uoor, pipe in

to get Blanche,' eh? " .
V Hurry up tbe cakes, old fellow ! '
rejoined Harry, "it's all right ; hero's
five dollars for you, aiid iust call your
hired men as witnesses." ' ,' ';'.'
A little crowd soon filled the huge
kitchen, where tho table was already
covered with a smoking breakfast, and
bidding them join hands, he inquired
" " Now, den, mine poy Harry, doc's
yon love Blanche better or worse, and
8ht;ck to her till yon ties to death ? "
" Und you, Plancho do you akrec
to shtick to Harry like teath to a tead

wife Amen! Now shust sit down
and nroakfast mit us."
Some years after this incident. We
were riding through the district where
this scene occurred, and being anxious
tosee our old chuti), we called to visit
him. As we drove up to the yard,
two verv rosy boys, with very big
heads and very white hair, were play
ing around the door step. 'A--sunburned
'.roan was . waterins a pair Of

"ill stay tm .evening, uurry aim

I we sat down in his parlor whero hot
told mo that his trick was forgivon
by tho old man; that Katrino had
married Blanche's former lover, and
that ho was worth a snug competency,

an inordinate' -quantity- of newly

monted in his' 6toiach. We bade
Henry good-byo, kissed his wife, dis-

children, ind took our leave at night

She will likewise have substantial
food, and the best Mocha coffee, three
times a dav.bnt no BUgar sugar spoils
