I do wish said Mrs. Prudence Hall, holding her darning needle in mid air for a moment over the coarse blue sock she was mending, I do wish you could see your way clear to marking Seth Ilallett. ye wants yo the wont kind, and he'd be such a good provid er.' But I don't like him well enough, Prudy; and I want something besides meat and drink, and two calico dresses a year Mrs. Prudence Hall had sprained her ankle, and was forced, sorely against her will, to sit day after day in an up per chamber, with a terrible conscious ness that everything about the farm was relapsing into chaos for. want of oversight, ller pretty sister Dora had come to stay with her; but she was 'on ly a child, you know.' There are two kinds of love in this world,' said Mrs. Hall, after a pause, in which she had been taking counsel with herself whether Dora was old enough to be talked to on such matters at all, and it flashed upon her that the child,' was nearly twenty years old. Perhaps you like Seth well enough to marry him, only you don't know it.' Tell me about the two kinds of love,' said Dora innocently. I thought love was love the world ever.' I have never known but one kind, I think. Dora. "When I married David Hall, he was the mo3t well-to-do young man in these parts, and we never had a quarrel. He was a good, practical sort of a man, and he never asked me to do anything unreasonable. What if he had?' a3ked Dora. Well, I guess I Should have argued him out of it. But there is a kind of love that will draw women through fire and water. It makes them throw themselves away on poor, shiftless men that will never provide for them nor their children, and they know it as well as anybody else does. It is the greatest wonder to me why such a useless feel ing should ever have been created.' Dora had bent low over her work to hide her roughish smile at her sister's discourse ; but at this point she fixed her deep gray eyes on Prudence, not smiling, but simply earnest. Such love brings happiness, some times,' said Dora. Next to never 1 said Prudence, with irreat decision. We ain't made to be too happy, and anything that's too good always leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Comfort is a bird in the hand, and you don't gain anything by letting it fly on the chance of happiness.' Did you know any one about here, Prudence, that threw herself away for love ? It seems to me they wont look at a man unless he has a house and farm ready for them.' That's where they're right,' said Prudence. 'You are rather Riven to high-flying notions, and it's time you found out that bread don't grow al ready buttered. Yes, I did know one girl who was pretty and smart, and had no end of chances to get married, (I think my David courted her a spell, but he never would own it.) and she would have that shiftless critter, Joe Raymond, who never could make one hand wash the other. Even when she was a-dyin' he pretended that she had been happy, and wouldn't have done no other way if she had it to do over again. Was she Joe's mother?' asked Dora, quickly. Yes, to be sure ; and when she died we took him to bring up and work on the farm. He's more than paid his way, but he's a rolling stone like his father, and won t never come to anything, forgot to tell you he's going away to morrow.' Going to-morrow?' cried Dora with a great start. 'I thought his time wasn out for a month.' Well, it ain't rightly out till he'i twenty -one, but he was in such a hurry to be oH that I gave him the last month V hen a silence fell upon both. These two women had the same fath er and mother, though a score of years lay between them. Prudence had been born in the early married life of her parents, when they 'were struggling with a stony New England farm, and there was work for even baby hands The lines of duty and patience were deep-graven in her rugged face, which yet beamed with a kindly common sense. 13 ut Dora had come to her mother late in life, as an old tree some times blossoms into loveliness after every one has forgotten it. Her little feet had walked in easy paths, and Prudence yearned over her like a moth er. She sat now by the open lire, bending her graceful head over some delicate work that Prudence never would have found time for ; her red dress and the flickering firelight made her a picture too lovely for that dull room. Prudence,' she said suddenly, 'as this is Joe's last night, I think I'll go down and say good-bye to him.' You might call him up here.' No; I think I will go myself.' I believe I haven't ever told you, Dora, how much you pleased me by giv ing up that childish way of going on with him that you used to nave. It did very well for you to be fond of each other when you were little, but of course it is out of the question now.' It might have been the red dress and the firelight that brought such a vivid flush to Dora's check as she listened and turned away. She ran liirhtly down stairs and opened the door of the great farm kitchen. A young man sat by the dull fire, looking into it as one does into the eyes of an enemy lefore the fight an over grown farmer boy, in home-made clothes, with nothing about him to fall in love with, least of all for the bril liant littlo figure that stood waiting for him to look up. He was too intent on his own thoughts to notice her, till she went swiftly across the room, and, tak ing his head between her soft hands, turned his face up to hers. 'Joe, bad boy, were you going away-without let ting me know?' The hard lines of his face softened and brightened under her gaze, till one would not have known him for the same nun. i inougut l snouui not see yo i to-night,' lie said. l ou know better; you know I would have crept through the keyhole for one last little minute with you.' How long will you wait for me, Dora?' Till you come back.' If it were seven years, think how lonir it would be.' If you loved me as you make me be lieve,' said D jra, 'you would not go away at all, but work here until you could build a little house, and then we could rough it together." "No, lit le Dora, that is not my kind of love; my mother tned that, and she lived a slave's lite." 'Dora, Dora I' called Prudence from up stairs ; 'what on earth are you doing down there?' I must co now; I must, truly,' said Dora, as she felt herself lucked in arms th it would not give way. lf X live without you for teven years I shall be a homely old maid, anJ you will not Hunk me for waiting for you.' He put her away then and looked at her curiously, a3 if he had never thought of her prettiness before. 'Do yoa know what your name meai.s?' he asked earnestly. ! saw it in a paper that Theodora means 'Gift of God,' and you have been just that to me. If I had never seen you, l snouia never have had a notion about a days work or a night's sleep. I will write when ever I have any luck, and come home on New Year a eve when I do come, and if yoa wear this red dress I shall kn w you have waited for me.' 'I think I shall live to wear it when you come home, if it is seven times seven years, Joe, lor women are so very hrd to kill, said Dora, slowly disappearing from the kitchen. What h ive you been doing all tnis time?' said Prudence, severely. I was only giving Joe som3 very good advice ? Weil, I hope he'll profit by it.' So do I said Dora heartily.' 'Tis a easy to say seven years rs one, and we read of Jacobs seven years, service for Rachel, which seemed as but one day for the love that he bore her. Rachels feelings are not thought worthy to be mentioned in holy writ but it her love was like Dora's, every day seemed like seven years. And here, in a nutshell, lies the aiKerence between a man's love and a woman's. Jacob had the sheep to mind, and he did mind them uncommonly wtll. Joe went to seek his fortune in new scenes, and only thought of Dora when he had nothing else to do. Till hei lover went away, Dora hid never cured to ask herself, wnettur she wer a child or a woman. Sunshine h id been pl nty with her, and she had eager y sugared and g ldfd the plain thmvs that farm life afforded her. B fore the first vear came to an end, she fell that she should soon arrive at a patriarchal age if she did not do something to kill the time which died so bard on her h nds. Teach school! I guess not,' said her father, when she broached the sub Ject to him. You ain't starvin' yet, and if you want some new furbelows. Just sny so, and not come at it slant in' ways like that.' I don't want anything, father; but there is so little to do ut home.' Nonsense! In my time gals was al ways full of business. Can't you make sheets and pillow-cases, and get ready to be married ? Who knows but some- body'll ask yo one of these days? Waal, waal, folks can't always have their'd rathers in this world. I ain't willln' and that's the end on't.' But this was not the end on't, and Dora easily obtained a school. She de veloped a governing talent which charmed the committeemen, and the , congenial labor in the company of little children took her out of herself, and infused new life into her hope deferred. Every week she walked to the post office, three miles away, to ask for a letter, going in with a bright flush on either cheek, and coming out pale and dull-eyed after the stab of disappoint ment. I wonder that people in the country are so anxious to be postmas ters; if they only knew it they are ac tors in more tragedies than any mem ber of a theatrical stock company. Much sealed happiness passes through their hands; but they have to refuse many a 'Mariana in the Moated Grange' weary women who reach a hanjl out of their dull lives for a letter and draw it back empty. It was far into the second year be fore Joe's first letter came. It was surely a fanciful and foolish thing for a schoolmistress to do, but Dora carried it to her own little room and put on the red dress, before she read Joe's let ter. Joe was working in the mines of Colorado. His luck had not yet come, in nuggets at least, but hard work and sober living were slowly giving him the advantage over the other miners. He was never so well, and he loved her better than all the world. Dora lived on this letter for many weeks, and she set 'Colorado' for a copy so often to her scholars that they will. write that word better thanwy other to their dying day. Letters came oftener as years drew on; sometime Joe was up in the world, sometimes down; once his carefully hoarded gold was stolen from him and he had to begin all over again; but this was nothing to a long illness, in which a friend wrote to Dora as soon as Joe was out of danger. Then Dora envied the doves their wing?. New Year's day was the hardest of all to bear. She could not help a strong pressure of excitement when she put on the red dress, which grew more and more old fashioned, and watched the sun go down on the road which Joe must travel when he shoHld come home. The next morning she fitted her shoulders sadly o the burden of another year. One young farmer after another found his way to the old farm house on Sunday evenings, and Dora pushed them down an inclined plane of dis couragement so gently that they scarce ly knew whether they had meant to court her or not. It was not the least of her trials to meet the treaties of her sister and the rough arguments of her father, when one or two more persist ent suitors would take nothing less than 'no' for their answer. Dora could give no reason for repeated refusals to marry, only she loved no one well enough a reason which should be all sufficient if parents remained immor tally young; but it loses weight after sixty. As the seventh year drew to a close, Dora's heart beat light within her. Joe had mentioned seven years, as if he meant to come homo then at any rate. She wore out the first day of the 'Glad New 1 ear with busy cares, till late in the afternoon, when an old man, spent with much walking, stopped to rest himself in the farm house kitchen. Prudence bestirred herself to give him a hearty luncheon, and when he was warmed and fed he began to talk of his travels. He had been seeking his for tune all over the West, and never find ing it, had come ack to die at home. He mentioned Colorado and Denver, and when Dora found herself alone with him for a moment, she said: Did you ever see Joseph Raymond in Denver ? Joe Raymond? Oh yes! knew him well; lived with him nigh on to a month. His wife is a real good cook; couldn t be beat in them parts.' You say he was married ? To be sure; a right smart feller, and mighty fond of his wife. Women are scarce out there.' Prudence came in, and the old man went his way, all unconscious of the great stone he had cast into the still waves of Dora s heart. What's the matter?' said Prudence; you're as white as a sheet.' Dora s only answer was to start out of the house, and run, as for her life, down the frozen orchard path, by which she could gain upon and overtake this terrible old man. She stood before the old man at the turning, bareheaded and breathless. How did the Joe Raymond look, that you lived with ? gasped Dora. I never said 'Joe Raymond," said the old man peevishly; ! said Jim, Joe, who ' but Dora was off again before he could finish the sentence. She ran through the OThard, giving thanks with all her heart that she bad not suffered herself to be persuaded ofi Joe s faithlessness on ope hearing. Her feeling of grateful awe, t s if she had escaped from sudden death, kept her from mourning much over the passing away of the seventh anniversary of Joe's departure, with no sign of his re turn. His letters had wholly ceased, and there was nothing left for Dora, but to possess her soul in patience. When auother New "Year dawned upon her, she put on tne old red dress more irom habit than from any gleam of hope in her heart, and did not care to look in the glass. In the twilight she walked slowly down the orchard path, and leaned on the gate that opened into the road. Suddenly a man sprang out from be hind the walL Theodora, my 'gift of God!' ' he said and Dora, though she recognized no mark of the lover who had left her eight years before, felt that no other knew that pass-word, and suffered her self to rest silently in his arms, in the ineffable content that comes after long waiting. When Joe and Dora went into the house, and she looked at him by candle light, her heart almost m If gave her his luxuriant beard, and the manly as surance of his manners, were not all like her Joe of beloved memory, and a terrible .barrier seemed to rise up be tween them, while Prudence remained in the room.with her company manners, which sat more awkwardly uon . Iter than her Sunday gown. When Dora tiptoed softly by her sis ter's door, at a very late hour that night, Prudence was lying awake for her. Don't tell me,' she said, that you've been waiting for that Joe Raymond all this time!' I wdVt tell you, if you don't want to hear it;' said Dora. Do you kno w whether he came home any better off than when he went away?' I really haven't thought to ask him,' said Dora, carelessly. Prudence groan ed and turned her face to the wall. Joe waited only till the next day to tell Mrs. Hall the story of his success, which looked very moderate in his traveled eyes, but it seemed a noble fortune to her homely ideas. I never thought before,' said Dora's father at the wedding, 'that a woman could keep a secret, and I guess it ain't more common than snow in dog days.' How long would you have waited for me ?' whispered Joe in Dora's ear. Forever!' said Dora, solemnly. And Mrs. Piudence Hall, as she overheard the word, thanked her stars that Dora's foolish notions had not wrecked her at last on a poverty-strick en marriage. Lippencott. How a Statesman Controlled Temper. His When M. de Persigny was French Minister of the Interior, he received a visit one day from a friend, who, on sending up his name, was shown into the great man s sanctum. A warm dis cussion arose between them. Suddenly an usher entered and handed the min ister a note. On opening it he at once changed his tone of voice, and assumed a quiet and urbane manner. Puzzled as to the contents of the nte, and by ino marked eirect it had suddenly pro duced upon the minister, his friend cast a furtive glance at it, when to his as tonishment, he perceived ' that it was simply a plain sheet of paper, without a scratch upon it. More puzzled than ever, the gentleman, after a few min utes, took his leave, and proceeded to interrogate the ushef, to whom he was well known, for he "himself had been Minister of the Interior. "You have," said he, "just handed to the- minister a note, folded Hp, which had a most extraordinary effect upon him. Now, it was a plain sheet of pa per, with nothing written upon it. What did it mean V" Sir," replied the usher, "here is the explanation, which I must ' beg you to keep secret, for I d not wish to com promise myself. My master is very lia ble to lose his temper. As be himself is aware of his weakness, he has order ed me, each time that his voice is raised sufficiently to be audible in tho ante room, without delay to place a sheet of paper in an envelope, and take it to him. I hat reminds him that his temper is getting the better of him, and he at once calms himself. Just now I heard his voice rising, and immediately car ried out my instructions." Suggostivo to Fault "Finders, "Now, deacon, I've just one word to say. l can t bear our preaching. I get no good. There s so much in it I don t want that I grow lean on it. I lose my time and pains." "Mr. Dunnell, come In here. There s my cow, Thankful she can teach you theology." "A cow teach theology! Wliat do you mean ?" "Now, see, I have just thrown her a forkful of hay. Just watch her. There now! She has found a stick you know sticks will get into the hay and see how she tosses it to one side and goes on to eat what is good. There again ! She ha3 found a burdock, and she throws it one side and goes on eat ing. And there I She does not relish that bunch of daisies, and leaves them and goes on eating. Before morning she will have cleared the manger of all save a few sticks and weeds, and she will give milk. There's milk in that hay, and she knows how to get it out, albeit there may be now and then a stick or weed which she leaves. But if she refused to eat, and spent the time in scolding about the fodder, she, too, wouM 'grow lean,' and the milk would dry up. Just so with our preaching. Let the old cow teach you. Get all the good you can out of it and leave the rest. You will find a good deal of nourishment in it. The raisin crop of California is rap idly becoming an important one. In the year 1878 it was so insignificant that no mention is made of it in . the report of the State Surveyor-General for that year. It is expected that the crop will this fy ear reach 151,000 boxes, worth half a million dollars, and that the yield will be doubled ne-xt year. Iu some localities as high as $700 to $800 per acre has been realized from this crop. The assignee of the defunct People's Saving Bank, Tecumseh, has paid the creditors a dividend, or 22 per cent., and hopes soon to be able to pay an other dividend of perhaps 10 per cent. The AdrUn Times adds: "Thi is bet ter than was expected, but some of the very particular creditors are wonder ing what tho honest proprietors did with the balance. Early in the sixteenth century a Ger man count coined silver pieces of uni form weight and Oneness a wonder in those days and which thereby became very popular. As the mint was in a valley, or 'thai,' as the Germans say, these pieces were called "thalers." And so the German "thaler," Danish dah lerj" Italian tallers,' and American "dollar" obtained their name. Drunkenness a Crime. Of arc. cent Temperance address delivered in Ypsilanti, Prof. Daniel Putnam of tho State Normal School says tho Commercial: lie asked the perti nant question, a leading cno in many minds at present: Shall drunk enness be treated as a crime? Ho conclusively answered the question. No one could listen to the stalwart and unanswerable argument of tho professor without coming to tho same conclusion. Drunkenness is a crime' against God, society and the individual himself and must bo so treated. Venus was in conjunction with Mer cury on May 80th.
