AWKWARD JEREMIAH.
A young man fashionably
uresseu and with the air of one
who would be at home in socie
ty, reached Boston toward even
ing, by the Fitchburg railroad,
He proceeded at odce to a hotel,
not wishing to intrude udou his
relatives at that hour, and took
a comfortable supper. After
this be read- tb ereninsr mroers
and tben went for a leisurely
. .. - V . .
stroll on Washington street. On
... ...
his way he passed Vinton swell
known establishment, and be
ing a warm evening decided to
go m and nave some ice-cream.
He accordingly ordered one.
and while waiting to have it
served.- bad an opportunity to
look about him a little and take
a quiet Burvey of the company
assembled. These were chiefly
ladies, and to those who are at
all familiar wicb Boston ladies.
I need not say that the faces
were very well worth looking
at
Our hero's attention, howev
er, was chiefly attracted by two
young ladies who sat at the ta
ble nearest his own. They were
apparently about the same age,
which, cgu,W not have varied
muoh irom eighteen. Both, too,
were quite attractive in person
al appearance.
They were conversing togeth
er in quite an animate strain on
a variety of subjects, At length
one said ;
w the way, Emma, have I
told you about the 'Visitor we
expected?" -
No,tt said. the other... ;. :j
HVb a cousin from the coun
try, -who, I suppose, will be a
perfect rustic in every respect.
Such fun as I may expect to
get out of him 1"
"What is his name?" , ;
"Jeremiah Outhank. I ex
pect he will want us to call him
'Jerry"
Ine other young lady laugh
ed. "His name is rustic enough,
certainly," said she. You muBt
not keep him all to yourself,
Alice." ' ;'
"I don't intend to . I want
somebody- else- to , enjoy the
fun.".- I-...,
"Do you know; how he
looks?" ::.
"No ; but I can imagine. In
the first place, 4ie is tall and
awkward, not knowing what to
do with his hands and feet,
wearing cowhide boots and a
full suit of blue, including a
swajlQw tail, studdod plentifully
with brass . buttons. , There,
what do you say to that pic
ture?" .- :,
Emma laughed. ; i . a
"I say this," she replied,
"that if he at all answers your
descriptiun he will bo a decided
acoession to our society. When
do you expect. lir?n
; 'To-morrow. Uncle Jerry
wrote that Jerry, as he calls
him, will probably arrive at that
time."" ' v - ;
, "I will call." : ';
i "Do so, by all means." -
; ,'With these words theyose
from i the table and left the
store. ' ' ; " ' '"'
i The young man had listened
to their conversation with an
air of mingled amazement and
vexation Not to keep tbi
reader in suspense, we will tell
you what has probably wen
surmised, that the chance lis
tener to the young ladies' re
marks was cone otaer tnan
Jeremiah Outhank hiraseLf. ' He
was .quite the .reverse of the
picture which bU i)ouaia- had
drawn, being, as we have said,
very gentlemanly, both in dress
and address. He was born in
Vermont, where his father,
good, honest farmer, still lived,
but had enjoyed the advantages
of education in a collego in the
city of New York, where he had
an opportunity to mingle in so
ciety. This fact was quite un
known to his cousin. In fact,
they were not first cousins, al
though . the indefinite relation
ship was most conveniently ex-
pressed by that term. Hitherto
the two families had known
but little of each other.
' "I will pay her off," said the
young man to himself, with a
quiet smile.
The next morning he visited
a ready made clothing estab-
lishment
"Have you any blue suits?"
he asked.
"We have none made up re
cently. They are not fashion
able in the city you know."
"I am aware of that, but I
intend to do a little masquerad
"What, to personate a coun
tryman?" said the clerk, smil
ing. '
"Precisely."
"Then I think I can accom
modate you,. Not long since a
countryman o ailed in. and order1
ed such a suit as you desire,
and having been fleeced of his
money by some sharpers, was
obliged to leave them on our
hands." ,
"The yery thing," exclaimed
young Outhank.
; "There is only one thing. He
was not so tall as you, and they
may be somewhat short in the
sleeves and legs."
"All the better. -Such is the
traditional country lashion.
Will jou let me see them?"
The suit was accordingly
shown. ' s
Our hero at once put it on
and could not help laughing at
the metamorphosis which it
produced in his appearance.
He hardly recognized himself.
"I think I will keep them
on," he said, "and have the
others sent to my hotel. I
want two articles more, some
cowhide boots and a flaming red
bandanna, and then I shall be
fully equipped."
The last mentioned articles
were not difficult to procure.
An hour afterwards he knock
ed at the door of his relatives'
aristocratio residence.
"Is Alice at hum?" he inquir
ed of the servant. '
"I believe sol" said the lat
ter, staring at him with eyes
wide open. "
"Then go and tell her that
her cousin Jerry wants to see
her. If she's frying doughnuts
or anything, tell her I can wait
in the sittin' room."
The servant, stifling a laugh,
went and reported the arrival
to Alice.
"Oh, charming!" said she, "I
was just thinking what I should
do for amusement. I am bo
glad that he has come."
Alice descended and entered
the drawing room.
There stood before her the
exact embodiment of the picture
she had drawn, the evening before..-.
... :. Tf '
"How dy do, cousin Alice ?
I'm Jerry Outhank. Expected
me, did', ye Tl
So saying he strodo towards
his' cousin, ' and ' grasped her
taper . . fingers in a ' painful
squoeze. ' , '' "i.
"I am very well, thank you,"
said Alice,' suppressing a smile
with difficulty, iMI hope you left
your family well.' ;,! 1
"JPust-rate. Dad s alive and
kicking, and mam's so's to bo
about-r-11. (Well except ,; the
4
bite heifer she a took' sick,
td I'm afeared she won't git
er it." '
J'Tbat's a great pity, certain
IV," said Alice, with much synv
I atby. ' '
j "I guess you'd think so.
That er tritter used to give fif
teen quarts of. milk , a day,
which dad used to sell to the
milkman for three cents a quart
half a dollar a day; clean
e-one." ;
; , "It is certainly quite melan-
choiv." , . ,
! Ye's " said Jerry, hesitating-
ly, looking perplexed
"When did you arrive
Boston?"
)'Lst night."
L' jJfWbere id y9u stop?".
in
' To the Tremont House,
What dew you think ? The
plaguey stage driver that took
me there charged thirty-sevefl
cents! I guess he seed that
was from the country, and want
ed to cheat me.
"I believe that is the regular
price, said Alice.
"Shoo! ,You don't though?
I guess you are made of money
in Boston ! It's a big town,
though." .
. "It's pretty large."
"I never jpeed so many brick
houses in my born days.
There's one thing I want to see,
though."
"What is it?"
."It's a ship. They have it in
Boston, don't they?"
'0. yes, plenty of them si
the wharves!"
, . "Couldn't you go out with me
and take a walk down there
I spose you're there most every
day?"
"It isn't exactly considered
proper for a lady to walk down
to the wharves.
"Shoo ! Then you don't want
to. go?''
"I wonld rather walk td,the'
Common. Have you seen that?"
. "Yes, I seed it this morning."
"And what do you think
it?"
"It's a confounded shame
they should let so much good
land go to waste. It would be
pretty good to raise potatoes
on
I ye a great mind to tell
the government 111 take it
shares."
on
"I don't think it would d6
any good. They- keep1'' it 'for
children to' 'play on and for the
people to promenade.
"To what?"
"To take walks."
"Oh, that's the idea."
At this moment Miss Emma
Dickson, the other lady, was in
troduced. , Jerry made a shambling sal
utation and the young ladies
continued to ply him with ques
tions, enjoying not a little his
rusticity.
Two or three days elapsed.
Jerry made his home at the ar
istocratio mansion of his cousin.
It would take altogether too
long to detail all the instanoes
of his rusticity during that
time,
At this time his cousin de
termined upon a party, chiefly
in honor of a young lady from
New York, a representative of
ine Dean society in mat city, to
1 ,A j V
wnom Alice wisnea to ao speo
ial honor. '
When Jerry appeared to es
cort his cousin down stairs to
the brilliantly lighted parlors,
she was surprised that he was
attired in fashionable style. - In
reply to her interrogatories, hi
said: ' .
"I kinder thought I'd like to
dress a little more ia : Boston
style, so I went out and bought
some new clothes. They cost
mint of money but darn
the expense. When I'm in
Boston I'm going to do as the

A poetical writer has said
that some men move through

Strength and sweetness, as the
orchards in October days fill
the air with ripe fruit. Some
women cling to their own
houses like the honeysuckle
over the door ; yet, like it, fill
all the region with the subtle
fragrance of their goodnim ;
How great a bounty and lies

Impoetance op Reading. No
matter how obscure the position
in life of an individual, if he
can read he may at once put
himself m the best society the
world has ever seen. He may
converse with the greatest he
roes of the past; with all , the
writers in prose and poetry. He
may learn how to live, how to
avoid the errors of his predeces
sors, and to secure blessings,
present and future, to himself.
He may reside in a desert, far
away from the habitations
of man, in solitude where no hu
man eye looks upon , him with
affection or interest, where no
human voice cheers him with
animating tones, il he has books
to read he can never be alone.
He may choose his company
Slid the subject of conversation,
and thus become contented and

Refrigeration by Machinery.
An invention based npon the
chemical,-principle that,- if all
the heat is extracted but of any
object, ' it becomes , Intensely
cold, is now successfully applied
to the production oi ice. A
small steam engine, by means
of two pumps, subjects carbonic
acid gas a pressure BufSclant to
liquidize it : In a liquid state,
this gas has lost its heat but
recovers it again when convert
ed into gas. Accordingly,
simple apparatus is - contrived,
by which (he acid in a liquid
state ia made to surround small
tubes filled with water. The
acid then returns to its gaseous
condition, and in doing so takes
with it all the caloric out of the
water, leaving it soua ice.
There is no limit to the number
of these tubes or apartments of
water, and consequently ,
large quantity olrce,, can oe
tormed at a time, the.-opera
tion being a rapid one,' and the
cost comparatively small ' ' '
