Emma Jane ; my life has been humdrum enough without ending it with Deacon Bliss. I shan't have hint '" " Well, well, Koaetta, if you won't I don't know's anybody's goin'ter try an' make you," chirped plump, rosy Mrs. Phlox, looking up from the stout blue woolen sink she was knitting. "I s'pose the Deacon thought he'd a right to ask you, seem' it's a free country. Caleb Appledore was a awful nice man, but so's the Deacon. l.one wimraen are put on. Job Whitta more neglects your garding, an' just see what work you have with your tins win ters an' keepin' roads broke out. "I'm not going to marry just to have some one tend the garden and do the -chores," said Mrs. Appledore. I've never found fault with them that's dead and gone ; but I know what it is to live with a person who does not care two pins for the things I do, and if I ever do marry again it will be some one who can sympathize with me. I can't say I swallow all 'Lias Bradshaw says about the marryin' of souls and affinities, but there's some truth in it you may depend. Besides. I'd like a little rom ince in my life before I die." " Ro-mance is all well 'nuff,' said Mrs. Phlox ; "but you're 39 next month, Bo setta, an' sech a man as Deacon Bliss don't grow on every bush. Bern' a good provider, an' a splendid farmer, an' a deacon, an' a pillar in the church may not be romantic, but they're good recommendations in a man you're thtnkin' oi marryio'. I hope you'll think twice." " I have thought, and I can't marry the deacon," said Mrs. Appledore decisively ; an' if that's being romantic, I'm not ashamed of it.'' Tbe little widow did not look romantic Her complexion was a dull white, and her hair was a dull brown. Dull, too, were her large gray eyes that blinked behind short sighted glasses, but her form, though meager and devoid of curve, was not with out grace, and she had a clear, sweet so prano voice, which, though it was un trained, she could use with taste and feeling. The Harmonicum, the Dixville musical association, made her the head of all their committees, aod relied upon her to sing all the solos. Indeed, without her it could not have existed. The wheezy mel odeon, which was a dozen years old before it became the property of the society, bad at last collapsed under the energetic lingers of Professor Jackson Jones, who did the ac companying, and they were trying to buy a piano. They had given concerts, and had oyster suppers till Dixville was tired, when Dr. OUapod suggested a lecture. It was whispered that the Doctor had expected the committee to invite him to read one of his papers on the Semitic tongues ; but if he did be was disappointed. They cor responded with many popular lecturers, who all declined to visit Dixville on the plea of engagements, and the committee at last invited a certain Professor St. Clair Smith, about whom they knew nothing save that he had lectured in the neighbor ing villages with acceptance, to address them. The Professor had suddenly ap peared in Dixville mounted on a tine gray horse. The next day he was seen to enter the Postollice with a green bag on his arm, and the gossips immediately reported tbat he was wealthy and had come from Bos ton. He at once accepted the invitation of the Harmonicum Committee, and an nounced that his lecture would be on the " Philosophy of Art." The meeting-house was hired, and Mrs. Appledore, with a select few, began practicing some music for the occasion. It was the afternoon before the lecture, and Mrs. Appledore had invited her sister to spend the day with her. Domestic duties seemed to be just what Mrs. Phlox was '• made for. Her husband and sister usually did all her thinking. In return she served them with her hands ; but the few notions that did creep into her round head she clung to pertinaciously. "The worst kind of a fool- is a beetle headed one," she said, after a long pause ; "an' puttin' this and that together, Ro setta, I think, you're preparir.' with your romancin' to be just that kind of a one. ' ' ' I don't see how sisters can be so unlike," and Mrs. Appledore drummed a harsh ac companiment to her words on the middb Cof her piano. To be sure, yon are the oldest ; but age need not make one's soul a clod." , "It would be well for you to remember that all the advantages are not on your side," cried Mrs. Phlox, rising with dignity. "There are bodies, yes, and dispositions, that are clods," and Mrs. Phlox jerked on her calash and went home. The meeting-house was full, and the next day the Dixville Time* declared the lecture to have been a most soulful and eloquent dissertation, but Mrs. Appledore's atten tention wandered, and she only knew that the entertainment was about to be con- eluded by Dr. Ollapod's sonorous call for " moasic." "I am delighted," said Professor St. -Clair Smith, bowing low before her, as Boon as possible after the " moosic "I never heard such a delicious voice." Mrs. Appledore coughed behind her hand to conceal her flattered embarrass ment, and tamed a questioning look on Professor Jackson Jones, who stood near. " You always sing splendid," said that gentleman, drawing himself up. "I dare say I put you out. That little obligato is a deuced hard thing to do. I didn't do myself justice to-night." "You've always dragged," said Karl Leopold, who took every opportunity to criticise the Harmonicum doings. Professor Jackson Jones pulled at his cravat, and Mrs. Appledore's face was full of resentment. "I never heard anything finer in Bos ' ton," said Professor St. Clair Smith, com ing to the rescue, "and I suppose you know what that implies." The night after the lecture was a very stormy one, and Mrs. Appledore was slowly twisting her hair in crimping-pins, when the door-bell rang. " I could not endure the loneliness of the hotel, dear Mrs. Ap pledore," said Professor St. Clair Smith, making a courtly bow, "and have come to beg for just one song." . ; - The Professßr was, so far as outline and coloring go, a handsome man. His head was what is commonly called dome-shaped. His wavy hair and silky beard were a bright yellow red, and his rather large eyes were blue. He sat down in the big rock ing-chair, and taking a twin on each knee, " 1 renew my youth in children," he cried, giving them a squeeze. "Do you know the song, ' The old times were the best times when you and I were young " "Oh, yes," said the widow, nervously turning over her music, " but I can't say that I feel so very old." " Dear me, what a blunderer am," cried the Professor. "I was thinking of my boyhood. I've always hated being grown up. A man has so much to fetter his imagination. You must have lost your husband in the first flush of your youth I" " I did," murmured the widow, forget ting that she was 35 when the avent oc curred. "The twins were babes." Song succeeded song till the Professor proposed duets, and Mrs. Appledore en joyed the music so much that it was mid night before she knew it. Two months passed away. The Pro fessor came almost every evening. He had hired a small house a little out of town, that he might be undisturbed, he explained, and a relative had come to keep house for him. He did not know how long he should remain in Dixville. He was pre paring a book for publication, and writing several lectures. When his literary labors were over he was going to take a trip some where and rest, though friends of his, in fluential in Washington, were anxious for him to accept a Consulship at an important point. The widow's neat white cottage stood by itself on the confines of the village. Deacon Bliss' fields of dark green pepper mint and nodding wheat, stretching along the road for nearly a mile joined the gar den. Before her abrupt refusal of him, the deacon had been accustomed to drop in for a little visit or to bring a neighborly offering of apples or fresh vegetables. But these calls had ceased, and, cut off from all her sources of news and pleasure, Mrs. Apple-lore stayed closely at home, prac ticed her music and entertained the Pro fessor. But one sunshiny afternoon Mrs. Phlox came bustling up the prim graveled walk. " Rosetta Appledore," she chirped, like an angry bluejay, as she opened the d«or, | " though a clod, which there are folks that j think different, I've come to ask you if you kno** you're the town talk ': " " The town talk ? " echoed her astonished sister. "Yes, the town talk," repeated Mrs. Phlox, with wonderful emphasis. " Any body would be who had spent two blessed months philanderin' with a married man." " Who is married ?" "Your Professor Smith." "I don't believe it." "I s'posed you wouldn't, hut I've seen his wife," said Mrs. Phlox, with evident satisfaction. " Miss Merrills, she 'twas Pearly Ann Truesdale, wouldn't miss a lindin' out anything if she had to walk ten miles, an' she called on her, an' told me. That night I says to John, ' John,' says I, ' a sister's a sister, 'specially if she's younger an' a widder, an' if I be a clod I'm goin' to the bottom of this;' 'an', 'says he, 'Emma Jane, I think you'd better,' an' the first thing he did the next mornin' was to hitch up an' take me over on the mile-strip where that fellow lives, in Tony Allerton's cot tage. He want in, but she was, an' she was washin'. " 'I'm Miss Phlox,' says I, 'an' I come to call.' 'Thank yon,' says she. 'I'm Miss Smith,' an' she set out the only chair there was in the room for me, an' set down herself on the wash-bench. " 'Air you Miss St. Clair Smith, the wife of the Professor,' aez I. "A sort of smile twinkled over her mouth, an' she sez, ' Yes, Miss St. Clair Smith, though I didn't know Mr. Smith had adopted the St. Clair name. That's my family name.' And then she went on an' spoke of her husband, an' of how am bitious he is, an' how he feels his spear in public life, and how she is willin' to do anything to help him. An' then she in quired if I thought she could get sewin' in Dixville when she feels a little better an' is able to do it." Tears of shame and anger gathered in Mrs. Appledore's eyes as her sister spoke. "Is Mrs. Smith good-looking ? Is she an interesting woman?" she asked. " I can't say how interesting she is. She seemed kind of trod on, so to speak. As for looks, she ain't any prettier' you'd be if you worked hard an' didn't have half enough to eat," said Mrs. Phlox calmly. Mrs. Appledore sobbed aloud. " What do people say about me? What shall I do I" she cried. " They don't say nothin' yet, on'y that you're dreadful foolish," chirped her sis ter, rising and putting on her calash, for it was almost supper time. "I can't say as I know of anything for you to do ex cept to tell Mr. Smith to stay t'home. 'Taint likely that Deacon Bliss will give you a chance to say yes a second time." There had been a good deal of pleasura ble excitement in receiving the visits of the Professor. To dress herself in her best mourning and to sing her favorite Bongs to an appreciative listener, had been something to look forward to during the humdrum work of the day. The thought, however, of what her acquaintances were saying about her embittered her life, and when the Professor again called one glance at her face told him that she knew all. "Dear Mrs. Appledore," he began, but she checked him. " You had better go borne to your wife, Mr. Smith," said she, coldly. Tears — real tears — into the Profes sor's big blue eyes. " But I love you," he cried, "and she has always been an incu bus upon my soul." But she's your wife," persisted Mrs. Appledore. "I know it," moaned the Professor, rub bing his brow distractedly. "It eats out my vitals when I think of it. She don't feel as I feel. There's no wings for me as long as I am tied to her. We've no affinity." Mrs. Appledore gazed at him in dull wonder. These were almost the words she had used to her sister, but they did not sound pleasantly now. "I love yon, Rosetta," went on the little man, approaching her ; " and I want to ask you just one question : Were I a single man would you marry me ?" "I might," admitted the widow, smooth ing down a fold in her overskirt with a trembling hand. " Enough ! " and the Professor flang his arms about her and pressed a rapturous kiss upon her forehead. "Bless you, my darling I " and before she could answer him he was gone. '.r.r The next evening when Mrs. Appledore was taking down her washing from the line she was suddenly clasped from behind by a pair ol strong arms. "You will soon be mine," said the voice of the Professor. " I've offered my wife §50 to leave me, and she has accepted." "Accepted," the widow cried, wrench ing herself free. " Yes. and as Boon as I can sell my book she shall go. I've lived in sole isolation long enough. My heart has found its mate." All the men that Mrs. Appledore knew were quaint of speech and somewhat rustic in manner, but what they considered duty controlled their lives. " You wretch," she cried, dashing the clothes-pin basket at him. " Fifty dollars I You ain't worth fifty cents. Go home and never dare to speak to me again I " "Hear me," he pleaded, catching hold of her gown. "I can't stay out here and listen to philanderin' talk," she answered reso lutely, and twitching her dress from his grasp she entered the house. But the Professor's hand was upon the latch. Like most little women, the widow was a curious mixture of timidity and courage. She flung the door opeD. , " Don't you dare to come in ! " she cried. "I'll throw hot water on you I I'll — I'll kill you I " Then, slammiog the door in his face, she bolted it securely. -• .■•■.": All the evening the Professor paced up and down Mrs. Appledore's back veranda. The next evening he again appeared, and the next, and the widow thoroughly alarmed sent the bravest twin out the front way with a note to her brother-in-law. Mr. Phlox delighted in anything that could be called proceedings, and in a few minutes he had the Deputy Sheriff and two Constables, and went marching down the principal street with them, to the great delight of all the small boys of the village. It was impossible tor the Professor to es cape. The officers crept round the house noiselessly. The Sheriff collared him. the Constables pinioned his arms, Mr. Phlox grabbed him by the coat-tails, and away he was walked to the village lock-up. Mrs. Appledore passed a sleepless night ; she imagined the whole town was wide awake and discussing her, and long before daybreak she had resolved to sell her home and Dixville bank stcck and move Weat. " I've got my comeupatice," she groaned. " I've always been romantic, and wanted a romance such as I've read about, an' I've bad one. Oh, dear ! ob, dear '." About 8 o'clock in the morning there came a lively rap at the kitchen door, and, unstrung by excitement and loss of sleep, she shrieked aloud. "On'y me; on'y Deacon Bliss," cried a pleasant voice through the keyhole. Mrs. Appledore slid back the bolt with trembling fingers. "How thankful I am," she said, holding out her hand ; "I feel so in need of somebody." "'1 was fortinet I come along 'jes I did then," said the Deacon, takingoff his straw hat and slowly rubbing his face with his ample bauuaua. It was a shrewd though benevolent face, framed in waves of iron gray hair. " I see ye look kinder peeked, The weather has been tryin'. I've felt it myself, an' ached in my jints the wust way." "It's my eoul, Deacon," wailed the widow, dropping into a chair and covering her face with her apron. " I've always hankered after a romance an' I've had one, and I wish I was dead and laid beside Caleb." "Oh, no ye don't, Miss Appledore," said the Deacon in the caressing tone in which he would address a Bobbing child. "This world's a pooty good place, an', with a few exceptions, folks are pooty good. I come over to fetch a few of my sweetins', and to tell you thet that there offer I made ye a spell ago holds good yet. I rally wish ye'd consider it agin. ' .Mrs. Appledore remained silent behind her apron. " Ef ye'd bey me," repeated the Deacon, in a low voice. " I know I ain't half good 'null and thet I'm kind uv an old fellow, ] but I've got a comi'able place an comf'able ! things in it, and I've been sot on ye this long spell, as ye knows. I dare cay I was 'tached to Lucy more'n I shall ever be to anybody agin. We sort uv growed together like, but so did you and Caleb, an' I'm sure I'll try ter make ye happy and yer two little trail, as sweet as two pinks, '11 be to me j-_a' like the little gals I lost." Mrs. Appledore did not remove her apron, and after a pause the Deacon fal teringly continued : "Is'poße 'taint no use to argy. Folks hez their own idees of such things ; but anyways I'll stand yer friend." The widow rubbed her eyes and slowly let fall her apron. "I've always had the greatest esteem for you," she said, with a little shake in her voice, " but I never knew how good — how much I think of you. I will— l " The Deacon started up, "Will ye?" Mra. Appledore had taken refuge in her apron. " Will ye really, Rosetta?" he repeated. The bowed head covered in the blue gingham nodded. " Ye shan't regret it," said the Deacon, solemnly and awkwardly laying his big hand, coarsened by labor, on her shoulder. " Lord bless the little woman — an' our home. Our home," he spoke softly as if to himself. WHS " P'raps now," he continued after a min ute, " I'd better drop in an' see him, an' in telltn' the news I might mention casual like we're goin' ter be married soon. An' thet nobody'll trouble anybody thet stays t'hum, an' thet I'm able to help an eddicated man to a good place, real neighborly, 'cause my brother Eben out in Kansas wants a clerk." Mrs. Appledore said nothing, but the Deacon seemed satisfied with her silence, for he did just as he had proposed. Pro fessor St. Clair Smith was discharged from jail, and in three days he and his pale little wife had left Tony Allerton's cottage on the mile strip to return no more. In about a fortnight Dr. Ollapod attend ed a quiet wedding. "You've had a ro mance at last, Rosetta. I might better say two of 'em," whispered Mrs. Phlox, as she gave the bride a sisterly kiss. "The adoration of the Professor was like things in a novel book, but mairyin' a man whose goodness an' farm can't be paralleled in the country is a romance that has sense in it, an' I wish you joy." — [Elizabeth Cumings, in Oar Continent.

We halve their joys, double their sorrows, treble their expense?, quadruple their cares, excite their atlVctious, control their property, and outmsntuver them in every thing. This would be a very dreary world without men. In fact, I may say, without prospect of successful contradiction, with out 'em it would not be much of a world anyhow. We love 'em, and the dear be. ings can't help it ; we control 'em, and the precious fellows don't know it. As hus bands, they are always convenient, though not always on hand ; as beaux they are by no means matchless. They are most agree able visitors ; they are handy at State fairs, and indispensable at oyster saloons. They are fplen.lid as escorts for some other fel low's wife or sister, and as friends they are better than women. As our fathers they are inexpressibly grand. A man may be a failure in business, a wreck in constitution, not enough to boast of as a beauty, noth ing as a legislator for woman's rights, and even not very brilliant as a member of the press, but if he is our own father, we over look his shortcomings, and cover his pecca dilloes with the divine mantle of charity. Then, as our husbands, how we love to pa rade them as paragons !

Oroville, Butte County, Cal., ) March 30, 1882. f IIKVRY K. FIELD, General Assent. New England Mnlual Lire Insurance Co. i Dear Sir : SAMUEL J. DAVIS, ex-County Treas- urer of Butte county, (Mcd at this place January 3, 188*2, leaving a widow and six small children. lie left nothinir for their support except the insurance on bis life. He was a member of Uroviile Lodge, No. 40, A. O. U. VV., and his wife received from that Lodge $2,000. He also held & policy for $2,500 in the Company you represent, on which he HAD PAID NO PREMIUM FOR TWO YEARS, and which was BELIEVED TO BE WORTHLESS. However, on making inquiries of >ou, we found that the policy was on the * - - Non- forfeitable Plan of Ihr New England .Mutual Life Insurance Company, And although the premiums had not been paid for some time past, yet the policy was good for $2,418 87, which sum Mrs. Davis hss already re- ceived. This is a correct statement of the facts in this case, and it speaks louder in praise cf the Com- pany you represent than any other words we can use. Mrs. Davis has the money; it was paid promptly and with little expense to ber, and it all came from a policy that was BELIEVED TO BE WORTHLESS. If coin ** talks" it certainly should in this ca"e, for she has it, and it came with the greatest possible dispatch. Very truly yours, L. A SIMON, Master Oroville Lodge, No. 40, A. O. U. W.; J. C. GRAY. WM. SCHNEIDER, ARCHIE McNEIL. E. HIGGINS, Past Masters; GEO. B. SPRINGER, Recorder; R. DE LANCIK. Treasurer Butte County ; P. O. HUNDLEY, Superior Judge of Butte county. OT Before Insuring in any other company or joining any co-operative assessment society, care- fully examine the practical working of the Massa- chusetts Law of 1 ->-".'. and read the policy contract of the New England Mutual Life Insurance Co. ii.
