It e went to the bouc of uml hi a very liiliii ioiiii Iate , all ready to nt off In a Intili on tlie klighli-et provocation.

For all tlreso rea sons, Madam Lothrop had been forced, as a general thing, to deny Trip the usual sanctuary niivilcgcs of good family dogs in that age, and bhut him up on Sundays to private meditation. Trip, of course, was only the more set on attendance, and would hide behind doors, jump out of windows, sneak through by-ways and al leys, and lie hid till the second bell had done tolling, when suddenly ho would appear iu the broad aisle, innocent and happy, and take his seat ns composedly as any member of tho congregation. Imagine our youngsters on tho qui rive with excitement at seeing Tarson Stnn meral frisk up into tho pulpit with all the vivacity of a black grasshopper. We looked at each other and giggled very cautiously, with duo respect to Aunt Lois'8 sharp observation- At first, there was only a mild, quiet simmering of giggle, compressed decor ously within tho bounds of propriety, and wc pursed our muscles up with stringent resolution whenever wo caught the ap prehensive eye of our ciders. Hut when directly after tho closing notes of tho tolling second bell, Master Trip walked up tho front aisle, and seat ing himself squarely in front of tlie pul pit raised his nose with a critical air to ward the scene of the forthcoming per formance, it was too much for us the repression was almost convulsive. Trip wore nn alert, attentive air, befitting a sound, orthodox dog, who smells a possi ble heresy, and deems it his duty to watch the performances narrowly. F.vidently lie felt called upon to see why and what were to occupy tlie pulpit in his master's absence. I'p rose 1'arsoii Summeral, and up went Trip's nose vibialing with intense attention. The l'arsou began in his high-cracked voice to intone the hymn: hiug to the Ioid aloud (I'leasc to turn out that dou) Aud wake a joyful noise. The dog was turned out, and the choir did their best to make a joyful noise, but we boys were upset for the day, delivered over to the temptations of Satan, and plunged in waves and billows of hysteri cal giggle, from which neither winks nor frowns from Aunt Lois, nor tho awful fear of the tithing-mati, nor the comfm t ing hits of fennel aud oiange peel, passed u by grandmother, could recover us F.vcnbodv felt, to bo sure, that here was atrial that called for some Imlul-j gencc. Hard faces, even among the best taints, betraved a transient quiver of the risible muscles, old ladies put up their I funs, youths aud maidens iu the singers' j seat laughed outright, and for the mo- I ,n(.,t a general snicker among children j was pardoned. Hut I was one of thai I luckless kind whose nerves once et in j vibration, could not be composed. When ' the reign of gravity and decorum had re - ; turned, Harry and I at by each other, ' - . shaking with suppressed laughter. Lvcry - I thing in the subsequent exercises took a j funny turn, and in the long prayer, when ! everybody e!e was still and decorous, ' the whole si cue came over me with such overiH)wer:ng force that I exploded with ; laughter and hail to be taken out of meet- ing and marched home by Aunt Ixda, as ; a onvieted riiiuinal. What eecially moved her Indignation was, the more she ' rebukeil ami upbraided, the more I laugh- j while be was a great rogue, Dick was. !

Yes, yes, said my grandmother, that af fair did iiiako a dreadful scandic in the time on't. lhit l'arsou Morrel w as a good man, and I am glad the counsel wasu't hard on him. fc Wal, said Sum Lawson, after all, it was more Ike llabbitt's fault than 'twas any body's Ye see, Ike ho was alien for get tin' what he could out 0' the town, and ho would feed his sheep on the nieetin' house green. Somehow or other, Ike's fences nllers contrived to get out come Sunday, and up would come his sheep, aud Ike was too pious to drive' cm back Sunday, and so tliero they was. He was talked to enough about it, cause ye see, to have sheep and lambs a ba-a-in' aud a blatln' all prayer and sermon time, wasn't the thing. 'Member that are old nieetin' houso up to tho north end; down under lllueberry Hill, tho land sort o' sloped down, so as a body lied to come into the mcetiii' house steppiu down instead o' tip. Fact was, they said 'twas put there 'cause the land wa'ut good for nolhiii' else and the folks thought pultiu' a meet in' house on't would bo a clear saviu' but l'arsou Morrel ho didn't liko it and was free to tell 'em his mind on't, that it was like biingin' the lame and the blind to tho Lord's service, but there t' was. Thero warn't a better minister nor no one more set by in all the State than Tar son Morrel. 1 lis doctrines was right up and, down pood and sharp, and ho give saints and sinners their meat in duo sea son, and for consoliir and comfortin' wid- .lOIS BIIU UipiWUS I'arSOU had'nt his match. Tho women sot lots by him and he was alius' ready to lake tea round, and make things pleasant and comfort able, and ho had a good story for every one and a word for the children, and may bo an apple or a cookcy in his pocket for 'cin. Wal, you know thero ain't no plcas- in' everybody, and cf Gabriel himself, right down out o' heaven was to come and bo a minister, I expect thor'd be a pickin' at his wings, and sort o' fault findin'. Now Aunt Jcrushy Scran and Aunt Tolly Hokun they sed Parson Morrel wasn't solemn enough. Y'o see there's them that thinks that a minister ought to be just liko tho town hearse, so that you think of death, judgement and nothiu' else, when you see him round ; and ef they seo a man rosy and chipper and bavin' a pretty nice sociable sort of a time, why they say ho ain't spiritooal minded. 15 nt iu my times I've seen mill inters that the most awakeuiu' kind iu the pulpit was the liveliest when they was out on't. There is a time to laugh, Scrip tur' says, tho' some folks never seem to remember that arc. liut Sam, how came you to say il was Ike llabbitt's fault? What was it about the sheep? Oh wal, yis I'm a comiu' to that arc. It was all about them sheep I expect they was tho instrument tho devil got to work, to tempt Parson Morrel to laugh in prayer time. Ye sec there was old Dick, Ike's bell wether, was tho fightin'cstold crittur that eve ycr see. v uy nick would imtt at his own shadder, and everybody suid it was i a shame tho old critter should be lea to run loose, 'cause he run at the children j and scared tho women half out their j wits. Wal, I used to live out in that par- j ish in them days, and Lem Sudoc and 1 j used to go out f parkin' Sunday nights to ; see the Larkin gals aud we had to go right 'cross the lot where Dick was so J we used tor go and stand at the fence and ! call, and Dick would see us aud put I down his head and run at us full chisel, ' and come bunt agin the fence and then I'd kcteh him by the horns and hold him - j while Lem run and got over the fence , t'other side the lot, and then P let go and : Lem would holler and shake a .tick at : at him and away he'd go full butt al j Inn, and I Jin would ketch him by the borus and hold him till I came over thai j as the way we managed Dick but ef fie come up sudden behind a fellow, he'd give him a butt in the small of the back that would make him run on ail fours one Ltm Sudoc jist wrote two words in tl J palm book and passed to Keslali I-atkln, aa tlie deacon give liim iuU t-'ij that Lrro grew red as a Wet aud vowed Lc'd be up w ill Mm some day for that. Well, Ixinly Mav, f..!ks ll .it is so h:ll o c!)!kt anil high sic) pin' ha to tht if rnmo dowo, and the deacon he had to Ikv hi. That are uiuhir.

Wal, Parson Morrel had a ay o' (.ray in' with his eyes open. Folks mid it wa'n't the best way, but it was Parson Morrcl's way anyhow, and sous he was prayin' he couldn't help seein' that Ica- cou Titklul w as a uoddiu' ami bobbin' out toward the place whero old Dick was fecdiu' willi the sheep, front o' the meet- in' house door. Lem and me wo was sil tin' whero we could look out and we jest sees old Dick stop fecdin' and look at the deacon. The deacon hud a little found head us smooth as an npplc, with a nice powdered w ig on it, and he sot thero makin' bobs aud bows and Dick begun to think it was stithiu' sort o' pussonal. Loin and 1110 was silliu' jest w here wc could look out and seo the hull pictcr, and Lorn was fit to split. tiood, now, says he, that critter'll pay the deacon ofl'livcly, pretty soon. Tho deacon bobbed his head a spell, and old Dick he shook his horns and stamped at him sorto' threatnin'. Finally lire deacon ho givo a great bow and brought his head right down at him, and old Dick he sot out full till and come down on him ker chunk, and knocked him head over heals into the broad aisle, and his wig fiew one way and he t'other, and Dick made a lunge al it as it Hew, and carried it off on his horns. Wal, you may believe thatbroko up the mcctin' for ono while, for Parson Morrel laughed out, and all the gals and boys Ihcy stomped and roared, and the old dciU'OU ho not P and lcgun rubbing his oi.:..s 'cause ho didn't seo tho joke on't. Y'ou don't orler hiugh, says he, it's no laughing matter it's a solemn thing, says he. I might have been sent into 'tarnity by that darned crittur, says ho. Then they all roared and haw-hawed tho more lo seo tho deacon danciu' round with his little shiny head so smooth a fly. yvould trip up on't. I believe mv soul, you'd laugh to sec me in my grave, says he. Wal, tho truth on't was, just ono of them buslin' up times that nalttr has, when thero ain't nothiu' for it but to givo in, 'twas jest like tho ice brcakin' up in tho Charles river it nil conies at once and no whoa to't. Sunday or no Sunday, sin or no sin, tlie most on 'em laughed till they cried, und couldn't help it. Hut tho deacon he went home feclin' pretty soro ubout it. Lem Sudoc be picked up his wig and bunded it to l.iin. Says he, old Dick was pluyiu tithing-man wa'ut he, deacon? Teach you to make allowance for other folks Unit get sleepy. Then Mrs. Titkins she went over to Aunt Jcrushy Scran's and Aunt Polly Hokum's aud they had a pot of tea over it, and 'greed it was awful of Parson Mor rel to set such an cxemple, and snibin' 1 ,1 ... 1 1 r i 1,... i ...i. xi- i,.

Stretched out onto a couch aud kivered with a Hag was an en ormous giant the most hugo and com prehensive giant I had ever seen, even in dreams. His legs was liko pillars, his arms was liko beams, aud his hands spread out like tho map of our wiinst hap py but now opprest country, llo seemed to be in the last stages of a fearful sick ness, lie hud bin, in his day, a giant of immene strength, and wtiz even in his illness as handsome a human bein' ns ever I sot eyes onto, liut it wu. evident that ho was goin' fasl. He drawd his breath painfully, and from ugly wounds on his body blood oozed out slowly but surely. Who is he? I asked of flic Goddess of Liberty, who sot at his head iu deep lnourninsj and weeping violently.

Out of the whole number he iu a short lime selected ono and dismiss ed the rest. I should like to know, said a friend, on what ground yon selected that boy, who had not a single recommendation, Yon are mistaken, said the gentleman; he had a great many. He wiped Ids feet when ho caino in, and closed tho door af ter him, showing that he was curcful ; ho gave up his seat instantly fo that old gen tleman, showing that he was kind aim thoughtful; ho took off his cup when 1 came iu, and answered my questions promptly and respectfuly, showing ho was polite ; ho picked up the book which 1 hud purposely laid upon the lloor, and replaced it on tho table, while all tho rest stepped over it or shoved it aside ; and ho waited quietly his turn, instead of push iug and crowding, showing that ho was orderly. When I bilked with Lini I no ticed that bis clothes were carefully brushed ; mid when ho wrote his name, I nolico that his finger nails wcro clean, instead of being tipped with Jet, liko that handsome little fellow's lu I ho blue jacket. Don't you call those things letters of rec oininendaliou? 1 do, and I would give more for w hat I can tell about a boy by using my eyes ten minutes, than all the line Idlers he can bring me.
