STREWING HEMP SEEDS.
A Christmas Story.
"Coming next week?"
"Yes, Rosie, he'll be here for the New Year
if nothing happens."
Rosie tossed her vellow ringlets, and put up
her red lips in a childish pout.
"I shall hate him, ixuut Eunice. I'm sure I
shall. The simple fact that 1 am bethrofhed
to him, willy-nilly, would set my heart against
him if he were a Prince among men."
"He is a Prince among men, my dear, and
you'll be sure to like him," replied Aunt
"[tell you I'm sure not to like him," insisted
Rosie. "Poor papa made a great mistake he
should have left me free."
"It would have been wiser, perhaps but
you: father had looked upon Ben as a son so
many years, and felt sure oi his making a
"Au old poke, twice mv age," pouted Rosie.
"Oh, no, not quite so old as that. But wait
until you have seen him. Never cross abridge
till you come to it, Rosie. Ben won't be here
for a week yet. When he is here, and you
have seen him, if you really dislike him I dare
say he'll not compel you to become his wife."
''But I promised poor papa on his death
bed, too, and a promise to the dying is sa-
Pretty Rosie was no kith or kin to Aunt
Eunice, oi.^y an adopted t*hild, cherished and
loved for ner dead father's sake, and Beu was
Aunt Eunice's only son, a Calcutta agent, who
had not seen his native land for years, and
who had last parted from his promised bride
when she was a little miss in pinafores.
But after his old friend's death, and Hosie's
promise to become Lis wife whenever he saw
til to come home and claim her, Ben had sent
home a handsome riug, and Rosie wore it on
her pretty tinker. And now he was coming
in a week.
"Don't fret, Rosie, Wait until Ben is here
sad you have seen bim."
"SeemR him won't make me change mj
mind," retorted the willful girl. "1 have him
in my mind's eye nowa poky old fogy, just
like Mr. Sykes, the parson. Oh, dear!"
"I trust the ease will not be quite so bad as
that, Rosie. But what are you going to
with all those hemp seeds, my dearfeed the
"Feed the pigeons, indeed!" cried Rosie,
transferring the seeds to her pocket. "Why,
auntie. I'm going down to Hazel Hollow to
try my fortune. All the girls are doing it.
Jennie Burr strewed hemp one dark evening,
a mouth or so ago, and the handsomest youn
man came following her, and now she's en
gaged to him."
Aunt Eunice laughed, and crossing the
room, drew the girl's head to her breast and
kissed her tenderly.
"Yoa're a good child, Rosie, only a bit way
ward, and 1 trust you may be very happy, dear,
whether you ever marrv Ben or uot. There,
run along, and strew your hemp seeds if you
must, and hurry back to supper."
Rosie threw on her shawl and scarlet hood,
and ran away, like the silly child she was.
The sun was quite down when she reached
Hazel Hollow, and the saadows lay dark and
thick in the wild glen. Rosie was not
bravest little woman ira the world, and
heart gave a great throb of fear she walked
on under the whispering willows.
At the edge of the Hollow she felt sorely
tempted to turn round and ruu back to Aunt
Etimce's cheery fireside, but a thought of Jen
nie Burr's success urged her on. She drew
out a handful of the magic seed and started
across the gden
"Hemp seeds I strew, liempseeds I sow
Let my true love follow me" and mow."
She repeated the charmed couplet in a little,
quaveiiug voice, strewing her seeds right and
left. She was half across the gloomy Hollow
before she could muster courage to look back.
When she did glance over her shoulder, a
sharp cry burst from her lips. Not far behind
her came a tall, manly figure, with something
which locked like a veritable scythe in hisshy,
hand. Rosie shrieked, stared an instant and
then sank down on the damp ground, scatter
ing her precious seeds as she fell.
She awoke to consciousness some time after
with a full moon shining in her eyes, and a
pair of masculine arms supporting herJ
"Oh, where am I? What has happened?"
she cried out in dismay, as she struggled to
"Nothing has happened," rspiied a deep
voice "only you were strewing hemp, and I
Rosie ventured one wild glance. A hand
some, bronzed, bearded face bent above her.
"Let me go home," she faltered, tremb
ling like a frightened bird, "home to Aunt
"Assoon as you please, my dear Rosie but
dou't forget you belong to me now. The
fates willed it, you see."
"Oh, let me go home," cried Rosie, in sore
"Come along I will escort youtotheAlmanac.
And her strange companion drew her hand
within his arm and led her along the moon
Rosie's heart beat 6he could not get her
breath. The instant they reached the gate,
she broke away from him.
"What! you won't even stop to say good
bye No matter, we shall soon meet again.
You belong to me remember. No man alive
can ever take you from me and in token of
my claim you shall wear this."
A heavy gold chain flashed over her head,
and a quaint, carved locket hung upon her
Through the gate, across the lawn, never
pausing once to look back, went Rosie, sob
Ding like a child in her excitement.
Aunt Eunice stooc on the steps of the old
firm house awaiting her.
"Why, my dear, how long you have been!
I was just on the point of starting to hunt
"Oh, Aunt Eunice!" cried the girl, rushing
into her arms and beginning to sob outright,
"lam frightened to death. Some one did
follow me and speak to me, and, oh, look at
this on my neck!"
Aunt Eunice led her into the odd-fashioned
sitting room, and by the light of the blazing
wood fire she examined the locket that hung
from the heavy chain.
"Well," she said, looking at the pictured
faee it contained, "a merry twinkle lighting
her eyes, "the face is a very nice one! There
must be something in your hemp-sowing,
after all. Rosie!"
*Oh, there is something. Aunt Eunice,"
panted Rosie "Dicn't I tell you that Jenny
Burr's engaged to the man "who followed
you did, pet. "Well, if it must be it
can't be helped. You'll have to marry this
handsome stranger, and let poor Ben andthose
your promise go!"
Rosie flushed charmingly as she stole a
glance at the pictured face, but the tears rose
in her eyes.
"No, I could never do that," she said. "I
could never break my promise to poor pa-
Rosie was in aflutter of intense excitment.
On the Sunday morning following her adve-n
ture, when she took her accustomed place in
Aunt Eunice's pew, who should she see sit
ting opposite but the original of the picture in
her locket, the hero of her hemp-seed charm*
"Oh, Aunt Eunice, look, there he
gasped Rosie, her heart in her mouth.
"So I see, my dear," said the old lady, qui
etly and, after service, when the stranger
came up and introduced himself as Mr. Am
brose, she gave him a cordial'invitation to
aecompany them home to dinner.
Home with them he went, and Rosie was
like one in a dream.
"Was ever a man so handsome, so distin
guished-looking, so noble?" she burst forth
when, he was gone. "Oh, Aunt Eunice, if
poor papa had left me free!"
"Wait, my dear. When Ben gets home he'll
see some way out of the trouble. Ben always
was a clever boy."
And Rosie waited, and learned, in the mean
time, that sweetest of all life's lessons, the
lesson of first love.
It was Christmas Eve. The old sitting
room was hung with holly and mistletoe, the
wide fire-place piled with huge yule logs, and
out in the great roomy kitchen Aunt Eunice
was elbow deep in cakes and mince pies and
plum puddings, making readyto give her son
& substantial welcome.
"Poor Ben. he'il like my good things, I'm
sure," she said, as she trimmed the crust of a
pie.. "He always WAB fond of something nice
to eat, and he's been living on bird's nests and
puppies and fried mice in that heathen
country for so mauy years, he'll enjoy Christ
mas at home I know. Here, Rosje. child, run
to the shed,and fetch your aprou full of chips,
this oven must be a leetle hotter. Hurry, do!"
Rosie hurried out, but a good half hour
went by before she returned. At the garden
gate she met her heroher stranger lover
and Aunt Eunice and her oven were
"Come here, Rosie," he callod, "I want to
speak to you."
Rosie went to his side with burning cheeks
aud downcast eyes.
"I've come to say good-by. Rosie," he said,
looking down upon her with tender, dark eyes
"I am going away for a little while. You'll
not forget me while I'm gone, Rosie?"
Rosie made no answer.
"And you'll wear this for my sake Let me
put it on your finger, Rosie
But Rosie put aside the sparkling diamond.
"No, Mr Ambrose, you can't put it on my
"Why not, Rosie? I mean it for au engage
ment ring. I love you, Rose, and you belong
to me, you know, by virtue of the hemp-seed
charm. Rosie, you care for me lust a little
"Icare for you a great deal, Mr. Ambrose
but I cannot wear your ri sg. You see that
clumsy, o:d thing on my linger? Well, that
and my promise to my dying father bind me
to another. Please go away!"
Stie broke down utterly, and began to sob
like a child.
"But if you love me, Rose" began her
"Whether I do or not, it is all the same. 1
tell you I'm plighted to another, and I'll breaK
my heart sooner than I'll break my promise."
"Then good-bye, little Rose!"
He kissed her hand aud turned down the
garden path. Rosie tied back to the kitcne.n,
sobbiugfitto break her heart.
"My dear, did vou fetch the chips?" asked
"Ah, auutie, don't my heart's broken. I
wish I were dead!" cried Rosie, bury
ing her face in the cushions of the corner arm
chair, and bursting into a very storm of
Eunice smiled with infinite content as
crimped her pie.
"Don't cry, Rosie. Wait till Ben gets here
and see what he says!"
"But he's goneMr. Ambrose, I mean. He's
gone,and I shall never see hiiu again! Oh,
dear, if I were dead!"
And all night long, while the Christmas
stars rose and went down, she tossed upon
her bed, that cry uoon cry upon her lips"I
wish I were dead!"
At last the Christmas morning dawned, and
from steeple to steeple rang that sweet old
song, "Pence on earth, and "-ood will toward
Aunt Eunice stole softly into the darkened
"Rosie, it is Christmas morning, and Ben
has come. You'll get up and see him, my
She ob yed without a word, her young face
white and sorrow-worn.
Aunt Eunice robed her in her pretty crimson
dress with dainty laees at the throat and
then she brushed back the rippling
curls, aud fastened them with a spray
"Come now, Rosie, you must go and sneak
Aunt Eunice led her down the stairs and to
the door of the old sitting-room.
"Go and bid him welcome, dear," she said,
unclosing the door, and pushing her gently
One startled glance, one little gasping cry,
and Rosie was in Ben's arms.
"Can you forgive me, Rosie V" he said, kiss
ing her pouring lips. "I was obliged to
deceive you, little one, or you never would
have eared for me. You do care for me a lit
tle, Rosie but I owe it all to the hemp seed."
"No, you don't, Ben," she answered with a
fond glance "I'm sure I should have
liked you all the saone if I had never strewn
"Then you'll take the ring now far a Christ
mas gift, Rosie?"
She held up her dimpled finger. As he put
:t on, the bells clanged out again in honor of
the Christmas morn.
"Peace on earth and god will toward
men," said Aunt Eunice, softly, as she threw
open the shutters to let the sunshine in.
"Ah! my children, let us be grateful for this
And Rosie, resting her bright head on Ben's
arm, burst into a flood of happy tears.

Because the penalties of physiological laws
are executed speedily, some fancy they
are void. But when the system breaks down,
and almost hopeless complications arise,
which the family physician, by reason of his
limited experience, fails to relieve, the per
tinency of the above inquiry is apparent.
Many remedies have been specially prepared
for these cases, nd many physicians are bid
ding for their patronage. As before making a
purchase of land, a "search" is required, and
the title carefully examined,o invalids should
carefully investigate th- claims of any physi
cian offering to treat chronic diseases. Dr.
Pierce's family Medicines are well known, and
have effected many cures where eminent
physicians have failed, yet to accommodate
surgical and comnlicatedeases, and those de
sirous of being restored speedily, Dr. Pierce
has erected an elegant sanitarium, at a cost of
nearly half a million dollais. No institution
in the world offers advantages superior to
found in this establishment. Half a
score of physicians are in attendance, several
of whom have been prominently connected
with leading American and European Hos
pitals. Every improved facility for hastening
a cure that a liberal expenditure of money
could secure can here be found. Before fully
deciding where to go, address Invalids' and
