You used to love me once, father,

Thou'lt save thy weeping child.

"My patiencci, Hetty!" exclaimed Mrs.
Green, lifting her bauds from the mould
ing-bouid, as her danghterbur.it into the
room, her checks glowing and her byes
sparkling with excitement. "Where on
rtirtli have you been tew? I could have
made a house while you have been doing
''Only think, mother! I've just seen the
Shnond girlVj and ibey say that the acad

will commence early in September^"
"-Woll; what of it V" ret. rted N r*
Green, with a vigorous nourish of the
'?Do you think father will let me go.?'"
"Go where?" inquired Mrs. Green, a;
she cut deftly from the edge of a pic the
"Why, to the new school/'
"I hope not, for the laud's sttko ! When
I was young, gals was brought up to
work, an' wa'nt forever a roadiu!, an'
drcaniin' away their, time. Howsomcver,.
if your father's willin' for ye to go to the
'cademy, I haint nothin' to say agin it;
but I shall think it to be the foolishesi
piece of business ho ever did yet, aud
there you've got my whole mind on it."
This was about as much encouragement
as Hetty expected from her .mother; and
pretty soon hor father entered.
He was a thick-pet man, about fifty,
whose sinewy frnmo and toil-hnrdoned
hands showed that he had been accustom
ed to lnl>or from 'his youth up. The upper
part of his face betrayed the kindly feel
ings that really dwelt beneath his Bome
what rough exterior, but there were oer
tain lines about the mouth which indi
cated that he was, what his wife called
" terrible sot in his way." All his hopes,
and desires were narrowed down to the
boundaries of his farm.
It was difficult to perceive where Het
ty obtained her strong thirst for know
ledge. It certainly \yns not from either
parent, neither was it called forth by
anything in her homo. Her father's
.library consisted of the Biblo, almanac,
"Pilgrim's Progress,'' "History of the
American Revolution," and an odd vol
ume of "Hume's History of England."?
Ho took an agricultural paper, but there
was little in it. that che care*! to read.
I3ut in spite of these disadvantages,
Hetty's hungry mind contrived to find
food. Thero was scarcely a Pook in tbft

Supper was 'ready and on the table,
and very tempting it looked to Mr. Rivers,
Mrs. Green's Slimmer b >ardery*w'lio had
been out fishing nearly all day. J j > ;-j
Mr. Rivers waa a.Youni? man from a
neighboring city, quiet and unobtrusive in
bis manors ; saying little but that fitjiel ney
crfailmg to fiuti its way to tfioIicartjo'r un
derstanding, whichever he nddresssd. He
was a genqrol fiivbri.to in the family. Mrs.
Green liked him because he was out much
of the tipio in the fields and woods, and not
"cohtiuncrly under her feet, as mos' board,
era. was." Her husband, who had been
sadly .troubled by the iiuinisitivcness>.of
most of their city poartfers, liked him
because ho was n quiet, sensible fellow,
"an', not forever pestering a body with
It is not .so easy telling why Hetty
liked him. Perhaps it was tho smile,
that made hit-- far from regular features
look almost hnndsj'oir.e, or it might have
been the small library lie brought-with
him, and to which Ue gave her free nc

Alter supper Hetty assisted her mother
Iii clearing the table and 'washing the
dishes. Then Ton; cnYnc in with the foam
ing milk-pails, and Mis. Green bore
them away to the milkroom, leaving Het
ty alone with her father.
Mr. Green was in his favorite scat by
tho'open door, smoking ; and Hetty could
see, by the expression of placid enjoy
ment that. was stealing over his face,
hat it was tho most favorable dpportuni
tyibr.brqnhin'r tbjj subieet_of which her
licart was full. So she took her chair and
drew it close to bis. *
Mr. Green was a .man ot few words,
and hot very demonstrative in manner,
so lie merely patted the head and pinched
the rosy cheek that was laid against his
shoulder, and smoked ori in silence.
"School is going to commence in the
academy, in September, father."
"So I heard," said the old man. shift
ingonc leg uneasily from over the other,
for he surmised what was coming.
"Can I go?"
Mr. fjirucii sceiiico 16 be in no hurry
aboni replying; I/o .."as deliberate in all
hisihovemems, and purled a'woy athis pipe
in silence, though evidently revolving
the subject in his mind.
"Father, dear father, do say that I
"No, Ilcltfy ; I've been thinkiu' the
jjttfttter over, and I've decided that it
alii'i, best. You mustn't think, daughter,
that it's' cause I grudge ye the time or
cxjjen.se, tho' neither time nor money
was given us to throw away foolishly.
But that ain't tho pint.. It seems to me
that the more you go to school, tho more
you want to go, that there's no end to't.
I always thought that you went to the
district school longer than there was any
need on ; but yon was bewitched to go, so
1 said uoIhm' tejjhhidcr ye. When you
said you wasn't goin' no more, cause ye
knew more 'n the teachers did, I thought
to besurc, you'd be satisfied; but you
wasn,t When that d&iidy?cd-looking
chap went around givin' hothin' would
do but he must conio here. But I couldn't
see that you was a bit nioro contented
when yo got through than yo wo3 afore."
"But, father, 1 haven't learned hardly
anything yet, only just enough to find
out how little 1 knew."
"Then I should say that it was high
timo you stopped going' to school, if thats
all you'vp larnt," responded tho literal,
matter-of-fact farmer, as ho nroso from
his seat?"Leastways, I've made up my
mind on one p'int?an' you know that it
aint easily turned?that if you want any
hotter eddecation than you've got' you'll
have to 'urn it.''
I Hetty came out upon the portico and
loaned her head against one of the pillars.
It was growing dusk, ami her eyes were
so blinded by tears that she did not per
ceivc Mr. Rivers, who was standing near
by, mending his (ishing-laclc, and who
had beeii att unwilling Lisbt* ii to what
had passed botwecn Hetty and her father.
His dark, expressive eyes were foil of
sympathy, and compassion, as they rested
upon that bowed head. ,
, ^ Hetty Btarted, dashing tile tcrtfa from
her. Hushed cheeks, for she felt half-asha
med that he should find her thus.'
"i am sorry for your disappointment^-11
no one could sympathize more with your
laudable desire to obtain an education
than I do. But.you,must remember the
oldIsaybjg, 'Whore there's a' will, there's
ft; tray.' I'nifar. from considering your
oase beyond? . remedy. How should you

? "Yes! I've been thinking, for Home
fime, that I ought to review the English
tranches, and it will bo muoh pleasanter
to "do so with a companion. So, if you
are agreed, I will send for my books to
"Are you really in earnest, Mr. Rivers?
"Certainly 1 am," replied Mr. Rivers,
looking down smilingly into the spark
ling eyes that were lifted to bis. "But I
warn you not to expect an easy time of it
I shall be a severe master* I assure you."
The next night the boohs came, to
Hetty's great delight. They looked sus
piciously now, winch did not escape her
notice, thoug'i she refrained from mak
ing any comment upon it.
Mr. Rivers was nearly as good as his
word?he was a strict,-if not severe, mas
ter, never allowing his pupil to pass over
a subject or lesson Until it Was thorough
ly learned and understood.
.. Aud Hetty s ambition and .progress
more than equalled his expectation. In
deed, he was obliged to clieck the former,
.ofttu insisting on her closing her books
ibr tue day, in the face of her earnest en
treaties to be allowed to oh.
As ibr Hetty, she was like one introdu
ced into a new and delightful world; for
the first time she seemed t? live. Even
more than her lessons, she enjoyed the
lonely rambles she took with her^teaeher
after they were. over.
Mr. Rivers was one of those rare men
who have the faculty of conveying ins
truction in familiar conversation, without
any apparent design or effort, As varied
as were h's acquirements, he \yna better
read in the "JJook of Nature" than in
any oiaer. And Hetty was surprised to
learn, as tlio Cid from his lips, how much
there was t ) interest and instruct in ob
jects so 'familiar to her from her earliest
recollection, ?s to bo considered hardly
worthy of notice.
At first Mrs. ^Qreeu looked far from
approvingly upon this armngement; but
a ;litt'.c judicious management,on the
part of Mr. Rivers, soon set matters,right.
Then again she was top shrewd, iti mat
? ers pertaining to her pecuniary interest,
to risk offending a boarder so profitable
as Mr. Rivers. So, with the <ago reflec
tion, "that if he was a mind to throw his
time and money away, it was uono of her
business," she turned hor attention to
affairs, in her estimation, of far more im
Hetty was careful to give her mother
no just cause for complaint. 8ho was

tho duties assigned her with a celerity

Contrary to his intentions, when he
caiiie, Mr. Rivers remained through all
the pleasant autumn diys, until tho sharp
north wind, that whistled through the
loa?ess trees, heralded tho approach
of winter?scarcely acknowledging to
himself how dear had becomo the task
that be had undertaken from the most
disinterested motives. Hut one day there
came a letter, summoning hint away so
suddenly that Hetty had scarcely time
to realize the nature and extent of her
lo.cs, when he was gone.
A few days after, Mr. Maltby, tho
principal of the academy, called upon
Hetty, olfering hor the situation of teach
er in the "primary department" of his
school. The salary was small, but she
bed ainpb- time and GUjKirt?hiry f? pi-ui-e
cuto her studies in higher branches, and
1 it was very gladly accepted.

It wi8 not until Home weeks ttftcr, that
Hetty learned. that she owed tliis oppor
tunity to the kindly offices of Mr. itivers,
who Was a personal friend of Mr. Maltby.
Mr. Rivers had told Hetty-that he
would write ?6 her'; exacting a promise
from her that slio ttotild ? reply. ? In tll?
couito of a fortnight the" eagerly-expected
letter came. This waVs the . commence/
ment of a pleasant correspondence of some
There was nothing npproaciiiiig to sen
timent in Mr. Rivers' letters?he invaria
bly addressed her as 'My Dear Pupil;''
but there was not tt line in them but
what showed the deep interest he took in
her welfare aid improvement. He not
only marked out a course of reading for
her, but sent her, from time to timo,
such of the new books that appeared, as
he thought would be useful rifid Interest
As for Hetty, she wrote to hhn as she
would to a fi'ifcf.d, older and wiser than
herself, who-c goodness and many acts
of kindness had called forth the gratitude
and reverence of her sympathetic, enthu
Hetty '.vas very successful in her school
not only shewing.a peculiar fitness for
her vocation, hut making progress in
bed own studies; so, at the close of the
year, one of the teachers leaving, she was
offered her place, together with a salary
that fnr exceeded her most ambitious
There are some persona whose minds
are open to but one consideration; What
will it pay; in mere dollars and cents?
To test this, cVcry mental and physical
effort ia subjected, to be derided, or ap
proved, as it obtains,.or fails to obtain,
what tltcy consider to-be "tho ono thing
needful." And even Mr. and Mrs. Green
began to acknowledge that there was
some good to be obtained from books,
when' they found that the dauhter, whose
"bdokisllncsa" they had so lamented,
could earn more in one mouth than their
broad-shouldered, hardlisted sou in. three,
and who, ccitainly, had occasioned them ?
no uneasiness in that respect. .
With Hetty's increased salary came
tho opportunity for the fulfilment of a
purpose that had often in her thoughts.
She knew nothing of Mr. Rivers' outward
circumstances; but had inferred him to
be far from w ealthy. S'o, in her next let
ter, she delicately hinted her ability and
desire to zepajfj the obligations, under
which ho had placed her, "so far as money
would allow her to do so."
ToJletty's great relief, Mr. Rivers' re
ply indicated no oftence at this proposi
tion; but it was somewhat ambiguous. He^
owned "that he had looked forward to
a certain Compensation ; but of its nature
and extent he would say nothing until he
saw her, as he hoped to do in a few weeks
at her own home. Possibly it might be
more than she would feel able or willing
Hetty puzzled her brain a good deal
over these words. There was no ques
tion txi to her willingness-/ sho thought,
and that it might not exceed her ability,
she began to economize in every possible
Owing" Co' various untoward circum
stances, it was spring before Mr.-Rivers
redeerhed his. promise.
It was eighteen months since .hey
parted, and Mr. Rivers was both sur
prised and delighted at the change that
they had wrought. Tho pretty, intelli
gent girl had ripened into tho lovoly ami
nccorrrplisftcd woman ; but it did not take
him long to ascertain that to him, at
least she was the same frank, waim
hearteU Het ty of old.
"Now abottt tho compensation you
spoke of," said Mr. Rivers, after a long
conversation, touching matters of "inter
est to them both."
"I have saved nearly the whole of any
salary. I only wish it was more?"
"But I'm not in need of money. It is
uot your salary that! want, Hetty."
Hetty raised her eyes inquiringly to
Mr. Rivers' face; but there was some
thing there that made them suddenly
droop, and the voice slightly uuoteady,
"What then ?'*

More .novelties are the result .of acci

origin of bluo-tintod paper came about
by a mere-slip of; the,. hand./ij-jWilliam
East, an English ^aper-malfpr, oo$2t?p?it

away on busine.-rs. While'tlip men were

Alarmed at ihe 'occurcnee, she deter

was the astonishment of the workmen
when they saw the peculiar color of the
paper, and great the anger of Mr: East
when he returned and found that a whole
vat of. pplp had been spoiled. - After giv
ing the paper, inu.de froma^yni^ihouse

to his agent in London to be.sold "for
I what it would fetch." "For what*it will

tho meaning; "well, it certainly is */,
novelty, but ho must not cKoeptfooraucn."
So he sold the whole at a cpnsidcrablo
advance upon the market price, and
wrote to the mills for as much more ns
he could get. The surprise of Mr. East
