Kilty Glenn stood iu the pantry with the sleeve of her gingham dre~s3 rolled up to her shoulders, displaying the plump, while arms, her hands playing bopeep in the heap of flour be fore her, and her bright eye* peep ing out through the green vines which shadowed the window to the handsome specimen of humanity which stood upon the lawn bofore the house, busily talking with Bob Glenn. Dick Arnot was her ideal of litanli ness and perfection, and ever since he had "beaued" her home from singing school on the preceding winter, she had kept a warui place for him in her loving heart, and loved to plea?>e him. Every time she wound her shining curls around her white fingers, it was with a thought that it would please Dick, and whenever she donned her pretty muslin dress, it was with pleasure, because once she had heard him express his admiration of them. All at once that bright morning, Dick left Kitty's brother, and walked strait up to the vine-wreathed win dow and gazed in upon the pretty pic ture. "Well, Kitty, I am here to'saygood by. lam going away from home." "Going away!" There was a great deal of real pain in her voice, and all the sunshine left her face. "Yes, I am going to the city to seek my fortune. Are you sorry." "Yes, Dick, I am sorry." "Well, Kitty, I am going to write to you; will you answer my letter?" "Yes, indeed." "And I shall expert a true answer to j all the questions I ask." She blushed and laughed. "Why, I always tell the truth, Dick." * "Yes, yes, I know, but—well, but—" "But what?" "Never mind, little one, I'll tell it all in my letter. Good-by, Kitty." And away he ran, leaving her confus ed and unhappy at the window. Poor little girl! Her heart waudered out to the great handsome fellow cross ing the bridge at the foot of the long hill, and she forgot her biscuit, and moulded them till they were hard as In dia rubber. Mrs. Glenn came in and gave her a smart pinch for her forget fulness, and when she returned to the kitchen she shook herhead and believed that Rath erine's wits were sartin leaving her. "Leave the gal alone, mother !" said Farmer Glenn, who had come up from the field for the lunch box and his root beer. "She's no different from gals in old times. I saw that young Arnot goin' down th© hi". auh I guess he carried her wits with him. Hey, Kit ty ?" "Xonesense!" "Never mind, pet, he's a likely chap and may make a great man." Ah, how anxious Kitty waited for the letter which was to bring the sweet story from Dick, and poor Bob was dispatched every day for the mail, rain and shine. One week, two weeks passed, and yet no letter, and the light heart grew heavy and sad. "Why didn't Dick write?" One night Bob brought a bundle of letters and papers, and as he tossed them into her lap, he said : Tnere, sis, I hope you'll find that let ter that you so long for, among the pile. I hate to see you so sorry. Ido believe you expect to hear from Dick Arnot! If it's so, he had better write; if he don't I'll tan his hide for him." "Don't Bob!" pleaded Kitty, anx iously looking for the wished-for mis sive. It was all in vain ! There was a letter from a city cousin who wanted to make a visit to Glenn Farm. There was another from uncle Will, all business and politics, and mes sages to her father, and one from an old school friend, but none from Dick. She tossed them into the little table drawer and went up to her chamber and cried until her bright eyes were I dim and heavy. Of course she did not care for him. | Oh, no! i>ut he had no occasion to promise her a letter, and beg her to i write to him. The wretch ! Well it did pot help the matter, and after three or four weeks of eager watching she gave it up, and buried her love and hope deep down in her heart, and tried hard to forget him. It was no easy task, for Kitty's life was quiet and uneventful, and there was nothing to call her mind from the old happiness of which she had so fond ly dreamed. When the year ended Dick return ed. Kitty saw him at church and receiv ed his formal bow with hightened col or and beating heart. He passed close beside her and looked into her face with a bland smile, bqt never spoke a a word. Poor Kitty! It brought back the old trouble, aud' when she went home she sat down aud cried as in days when she watched for the promised letter. lie came one night, and met Kitty as she came up from the field with a basket filled with ripe strawberries up on her arm. She saw him, and wished herself Lniies away ; but there was no chance to avoid him, and "he walked straight to the bars, where he awaited ner, "Kitty, you are tryiug to avoid ie, but as there are* no other means of leav ing th? field unless you climb the fence of course you must pass me. Now, I ain better natuied than yourself. Ido not entertain an unkindly feeling toward you, for all your unkindneas." "My unkindness!" - ' "Yes, you never gave ine one kind word in repiy to the long letter I sent you so many months ago." "Your lettef! I never received it. I watcher! for it, Dick, until I was tired, but it never came. "But I sent it, Kitty, and watched for your reply until my heart grew sick. But as it never met your eyes I will tell you its contents. Will you listen?" "Certainly." "It was a long letter, but its whole import can be told in a few words. 1 only told you how dear you were to me, ami asked you to wait until I came to claim you for my wife." "O Dick I" "Whatshall it be? Are ycu ready to reply ?" "Yes, I think so." "And your reply is— ' Yes." He leaned over, and kissed the bright face, and then dropped the birs for her to walk through, and together they walked up the lane to the house. "Dick" called Bob, "has Kitty found her letter?" "I believe so for she looked as she did when you stood talking at the window, last summer." Yes, Kitty had found her letter, or its meaning, and all the vanished hap piness stole back to her heart and light ed tip her sweet face ! It was only a short time ago that Kitty in her cottage just across the way from father's, sat cutting the old worn out blue jacket, which Boh had gloried in for several years, into strips for a drawn rug, on the frame close by and found in the lining a little creased and soiled envelope. She turned it o ver and read, "Miss Kitty Glenn, Har ding, X. H." "Dear me! I wonder what this means!" she thought; and after she had turned it over several times she o pened it. There it was, the long-lost letter in which Dick had toid his love-story! Kitty smiled. "Weil, it's just as well. v It came out all right." AT EASE IX SOCIETY. "I'd rather thrash wheat all day in the barn," said Reuben Riley to his sister, as he adjusted an uncomfortable collar about his sunburnt neck, "than go to this pesky party. I never knew what to do with myself, stuck up there in the parlor all the evening. If the fellows would pull their coats off an<l go out and chop on a match, there' he some sense in it." "Well, 1 hate it as bad as you do, Reub," said sister Lucy. "The fact is, we never go nowhere, nor see any body, aud no wonder we feel so awk ward when we do happen to stir out." The remarks of this brother and sister were but echoes of the sentiment of many other farmers' boys and girls, when invited out to spend a social eve ning. But poor Lucy had hit the true cause of the difficulty. It was not be cause they so seldom went to any place, but because their is such a wide difference between their home and company manners. The true way to feel at ease in any garb is to wear it of ten, If the pleasing garb of good man ners is only put on upon rare occasions it will nevee fit well, and never seem comfortable. la?arn to behave pro|er!y at home, to cultivate yourself. Do not sit, or stand, or lounge about in ungainly at titudes, but acquire a manly, erect and graceful bearing. I have never seen such vigorous, hearty manhood in any class as among cultivated farmers' sons. Let table manners lie especially looked afte'. Note carefuliy how well-bred people behave, aud do your best to im itate them. It is noble to be an imi tator of that which is good aud beauti ful. Above all, if you wish to be at home hi society, fill your brains with ideas. Set yuur mind to work. Wake it out? f the slugishness it would natur ally sink into. Take the newspapers and read them throughly. Knowl edge is power in more senses than one. If you go into society with something in your mind worth talking about, you will not fail to find listeners who will treat you with respect, and were yoj are well received, you will not fail very soon to find yourself at ease. A Sove.i.isvs R£V£GK The London Athnceum tells the fol lowing story i "Mr. Brown, let us call him tiie proprietor of, shall we say, The Kitchen Stunner, was dissatis fied with his novelist, Mr. Jones, and told him so. Jones was then half way through a romance which appeared in weekly driblets; but Brown gave him notice to quit at once, and added that he had engaged Mr. Robinson to go on with and complete the story. Jones accepted the warning, bui remarked that, as he had sufficient manuscript ! copy to supply the -chapters for the I next number, they had to be "set up,' after which Mr. Robinson might take \ up the thread of the story, and get to | the end of it. Brown consented, and | went down to his suburban retreat, whither was forwarded to him the next Dumber of the Stunner, with Jones' chapters from which Robinson was to continue the narrative. If Brown possesses true critical faculty, he must have admired tfip inventive power of the old bird writer, and have doubted whether Robinson would be equal to the present emergency. In short, Jones having collected every living personage and animal he had ; named in the novel, put them all on board a ship bound for America, and ' sent the whole of them, ship, freight ' and passengers, down to the very bot tom of the Atlantic, never to be brought up again. The words, 'To be continued, at the close ul the chap ter, formed a challenge to ihe lngeru j ity of Robinson, which he was !oo ill qualified to accept, and accordingly the story remains somewhere unflnbh ' eJ, and as forgotten as tho author whe | stopped and the writer who could nol ! set it going again." a roxn KFMsee. A resj>ectable man of the county of Montgomery, resided on the banks of the Hudson river. One day he went to a bay on the river to shoot ducks or wild geese. When he came to the riv er he saw six geese beyond shot. He determined to wait for them to ap poach the shore. While sitting there he saw a fox come down to the shore, stand some time aud observe the geese. At length he turned and went into the woods, and came out with a bunch of moss in his mouth. He then entered the water very silently, sank himself, and then keeping the moss a bove water—himself concealed- he floated among the geese. Suddenly one of them was drawn under the wa ter, and the fox soon appeared on the shore with the goose on his back. He ascended the bank, and found a hole made by the tearing up of a tree. This hole he cleared, placed in the goose, and covered it with great care, strew i:g leaves over it. The fox then left; and while he was away the hunter un buried the goose and closed the bole, and then resolved to await the issue.~ In about an hour the fox returned with another fox in company. They went directly to the place where the goose had been buried, and threw out the earth. The goose could not be found. They stood regarding each other for some time, when suddenly the second fox attacked the other furiously, as if offended by the trick of his friend. Ure IN UEKMANY. You enter a German house without knocking, through a door which rings a beli and thus announces the ingress or egress of some one. At the foot of the staircase you find a bell-handle, by ringing at which you call u servant who conducts you to a parlor or recep tion room on the next floor, which you enter by knocks. You will find the parlor and the best rooms in the house adorned with beautiful pictures on the walls, and elegant lace curtains at the windows, bnt probably without any carpet. The floor, however, is tesselated with beautiful patterns in various colors, and varnished, or at least it is scoured till it is as whi;e as the driven snow. The amount of fine white linen which a German hoase keeper has, and which she is not reluc tant to show her guests, is fabulous. The Germans in this country, and in such cities as Gottingen, keep early hours, breakfasting at eight or earlier, dinner at two, and usually going to bed as early as ten. We attended a concert of most delightful music, but it began at five o'clock in the after noon and closed at seven in the eve ning. In short, the child-like virtues of simplicity, candor, naturalness and heartiness which have almost died out in fashionable American society, still exist in Germany inall their primitive perfection.— Letter /re m Professor Ty ler of Am/tester < ollege. "Gentlemen of the jury," said a Western lawyer, "I don't mean to in sinuate that this man is a covetous person, but I will bet five to one that if you should bait a steel trap with a new threecent piece, and place it with in six inches of his mouth, yoa would catch his soul. I wouldn't for a mom ent insinuate that he wouid steal, but may it please the court and the gentle men of the jury, I wouldu't trust him in a room with red tiot millstones,and the angel Gabriel to watch 'em."

Hard .Sauce : One cup .sugar, two thirds of a cup of butter; beaten until perfectly smooth and white. The best method of hitching a num ber of teams, one before the other, is to extend a lung chain or rope from the leaders to the draught, and hitch the other teams to this by means of short chains. Cbrti Fritters : Young sweet com, |>epper, salt, nutmeg, butter hot in a pan. (irate the corn from the cobs in to a basin, season and drop by spoon fuls into the pan, and fry until brown. This is a delicious breakfast relish, but requires a considerable time to prepare it. Jenny Liners Padding: Grate the crumb of half a loaf, butter the dish well, and lay in a thick layer of the crumbs; pare ten or twelve apples, cut t'lem down, and put a layer of them and sugar; then crumbs alternately, 'intil the dish is full; put a bit of but ter on the top, and bake it well in an oven. An excellent and economical pudding. Rice Cake: Takesix eggs, with their weight in fine sugar, and in butter al so, and half their weight of flour of rice, half of wheaten flour ; make the Cike as directed for Maderia cake, but throw in the rice after the flour; then add the butter in the usual way, and bake the cake about an hourand ten minutes. Give any flavor that is lik ed. Veal Omelette: Three pounds of chopped veal, two eggs beaten, one ta blespoonful of sweet cream, one table spoonful of salt, one tablespoonful of ground pepper, six tablespoon fuls of rolled crackers, one taespoonful thyme or summer savory. Make into a long roll, put into a dripping pan with water enough to keep from burning. Bake well. Some add a slice of salt pork chopped. Weevil. Salt is said to be a complete preventive against the destruction of wheat by weevil. Mix a pint of salt with a barrel of wheat, or put the grain in old salt barrels, and the wee vil will not attack it. In stacking wheat, four or five quarters of salt to every hundred sheaves, sprinkled a mong them, will entirely secure them from the depredations of this Insect, aud render the straw more valuable as food for cattle. Foexlfor Pigs, A Highland county correspondent of the Cincinnati Ga zette vouches for the following as the best feed to make the biggest hog out of a pig in twelve months : Take two parts barley, two of corn and one of oats. Grind them together; then cook and feed cold. This way of feed ing is the cheapest way to make hogs keep fat from the time they are pigs. Take any pig of a good improved breed, and it can be made 111 this man ner to gain one pound a day un:il a year old. Oaf mad Cracknels : Add just suffi cient water to the oatmeal to wet it through; let it stand ten minutes to "set," theu knead it with a little flour, and roll out, with a well-floured pin an d hoard, to the thickness of a wheat kernel, cut with a knife, or small bis cuit-cutter, and bake in a quick oveu teu minutes, or until they will crack between the thumb and fingers. l>o not let them brown. Good with soup or alone—less trouble to make than crackers. Potato Pudding: Cook in water two quarts and a half of flue potatoes and mash them through a fine colan der. Mix them theu with a quarter pound of melted butter and the same quantity of powdered sugar. When the mixture is thorough, add six eggs, beaten as if for an omelette, a glass of brandy and a pound of Zante currants. Mix again, turn the whole Into a cioth, tie it that the pudding may not escape. Put it to cook in boiling wr ter, boil for a quarter of an hour, take it out of the cloth. Set it on a dish, and serve it bathed in sauce made of a glass of wine, in which sugar and melted butter have been mingled. Close Grazing. If close grazing is In jurious, how is it that in pastures which have not been plowed for years there are patches where cattle ar.d sheep have kept the grass at all times very short, which always have a much thicker set of grass than where it has been left long? Why Is It that when the stock is taken away the gra-s grows up in these places, so closely eaten down, in such a thick mass of while clover and other fine ftbered gra-s; a'd if mown for hay, why is this always of the best quantity, and, though not so long and eoarsa, yet heavier in weigh ? Moreover, why should there lie gras> 0:1 the roadsides and on waste places near villages, where the surface has not had the sod taken off, which, be ing grazed close by all manner of ani mals, shows a much better free than farmer's pastures? Wheat for Feed. At the present price of the lower grades of wheat (un sound)—about one dollar and ten cents per sixty pounds—it is the cheapest feed in the market. It is estimated to l>e worth one-fifth more than eora, which is worth one dollar per bushel or more, for fifty-six pound. Thi9 gives the advantage of ten cents in price ar.d four pounds, or eight cents in weight. For working animals, milch cows, growing young stock, swiue and poultry, it is a: excellent food, and seems to have the superior ity for them over the other grains that it hss for man. It should bo thoroughly soaked or ground, and in either case its value would be in creased by cooking. A half barrel of ladling water, with a bushels of wheat meal stirred into It, and then kept over night, will cook itself into a most sav ory kiud and excellent mess for faU pip<
