You may laugh as- much as you please Harry, but that i- the conclusion I have reached, answered Bernard; and the look of (li ienni iialion ou his face con vinced Harry there was more tnilh than flelioii in hi friend's decisive woiiIm. Well, if (hat he. so, then 1 must nay that I wish you much comfort and pleas ure delving Ihrotigh the kit miner's heat ami winter's snow. Hut, Mat pardon me if I speak plainly I can't help think ing you are making a fool of yourself. No apology, Harry. 1 knoyv well enough yon mean rii'ht, if you do indulge in (etso terms; and as for being a fool, I t Iii nk 1 have sense enough to see that 1 can do belter at twenty dollars per month ou a farm than I can nt twenty-flvo in a store. , l'robably so, anyvered Thomas, rather doubtfully; possibly not. In mercantile business one ban a ehatica for advance ment; hut a farmer's man U only a clod hopper nil his life. Think you that Uorsford or Kvcison are clod-hoppers? asked Mai, as a smile passed over his countenance. Oh, not they aro rich, and hire ail their work done. They spend their time as gentlemen, making farming a mere pas time. And yet I heard liversou my, a few days since, that ho commenced as a boy at five dollars a month and worked his way up, calmly answered Bernard. They your mind is set ou that lino of business, wbilo mine is bent on going through (lie one I am now in. Perhaps 1 may have to stand at tho counter all my life but we will sec about that some other time, said Thomas. When? asked Mat. . II we both live, meet in live yeurs, to compare notes, answered Harrv. Well, five years hence we will cast the tialiiniv, but re i ii :i i ii friends u of old, in the interim. ( 'eiiainly ; good day.

I mid five years wa loiiff eiioiijjh for j one person to clerk In this house, coldly answered Biuiiiiif, the merchant. Then you do not wish my services longer, J understand yon to my? queried Harry, with a tremor in his voice. Xo, I did not exactly sny that. I wish lo know if you have i-aved inuic of your wages than mo now in my hands, I have just been casting up ifl see how I stand, i.ir. I had a vague idea, not yet fully formed, that perhaps, I might do something with my small capital that might Increase it somewhat and more. I have mi engagement with a friend to meet in a few months now, to see which is tho better business for a mun to follow (o show the difference between the no cumulation of a merchant's talesman and a farm laborer and I wish to out balance him, replied Harry with a smile. Well, Thomas, 1 too have been figuring and 1 cce I have paid you a (rifle over twenty-three bundled dollars since you came here. Yes, sir; and out of that I have saved ubout nine hundred. That is fairly done; tlill I cannot help thinking it might have been more, replied Binning. Just what I am trying to get at, and cannot yet see how 1 can do much belter than 1 have. If you can show me in what yvay I can save a greater average than I have already done, 1 shall feel greatly thankful lor the information. I do not know but you have done well enough upon your wages; but I have thought you might so invest it as to bring in a little-1 mean, make your money earn something for itself, was the mer chant's answer. Place it at interest, or hov? usked Harry. Invest in some business, and go in on your own responsibility. Nine hundred will not go far after pay ing tho necessary expense of fitting up, modestly replied Harry. Exactly so; and yet 1 think I can see nu easy way for you. There is a small country store at the Point, seeking a purchaser, and 1 believe your nine hun dred will enable you to cfi'ect a purchase. If you can do so, 1 am willing to aid you somewhat in getting started. I will consider tho subject, sir, was Harry's quiet answer, as the merchant turned away. Consider it he did, an d the result was he purchased the stock and good will of tho establishment his employer had re ferred to, and with tho axsi'tauee of Bin ning he was enabled to replenish his stock so thoroughly that he had no reason. to compKiin about his setting up al though being encumbered with liabili ties. Thus (ar, all had been pleasant sailing with Harrv Thomas. His Cup of Plenty seemed not to cease (lowing. pyltr III. MATT1IKW Kl.liNAKIl's n K YKAltS.

When will yon he prepared to begin work ? To-morrow, sir. I must needs go to Linton before 1 can take hold properly, answered Matthew, Very well; shall expect you ou the morrow, and upon this the deacon passed out to attend to his duties, while our young friend walked off liiinidly to the village, four miles distant. What pnsscd through his mind on the j way to town is known only lo himself; but the rcpid, firm trend, bespoke the man of will. Before tho family had risen from the bi cak last (able ou the following morning Matthew Bernard appeared at Deacon How lund's door, clad in homespun, with a small bundle in ids hands as he after wards said, sulUcient clothing to com mence business with. Having been informed that It wus cus tomary to do up tho chores before break fast, that they might go to the fields im mediately after, Matthew requested in structions for the day. Y'ott will have to burrow the oat field to-day; the boys will show yon, said the deacon. Matthew followed the boys to the barn and aided in harnessing the horses so awkwardly, indeed, that tho other men could not repress their merriment all of which our friend took good-humored ly, and when he explained that ho was there only to learn, the others showed genuine rural willingness lo aid the new coiner. It was a dry, warm spring day, with a "(iff breeze from tho south, which blew tho dust raised by tho drag, all about h:m, nearly suffocating Matthew with its intense mastery. Tramp, tramp, back and forth over the newly plowed ground. All day the hours seemed to grow longer as each successive one came, until our friend seemed fainting with tho unwont ed labor. Oh ! how tho back ached how tho limbs seemed ready to sever from the body how often the embroy farmer turned his mind to the case In Yardstick's store and how, after cuch short rest or breathing spell, the hero in the man would break out ' with, Hammer it through 1 mid struggle on until tho sup per horn called the men from tho fields. After (he evening meal upon the farm, the I run love of a farmer's life reveals itself in the .care of the slock, poultry and other living but unspeakable nttachiuctiU to every well-to-do farmer. Yes, thought Matthew, here in the care of these dumb creatures, the ennobling Irailsoi' iiiiiu can find vent lor its talents. As the tlajs lolled along, Mallhew, whose whole heart seemed imbued with tin few world about him, slowly gained lite- knowledge of the duties lulling upon him all of which he endeavored to per form to Die satisfaction of the deacon, con, toward whom he began to leel the ulli clion ot ii sou, and who in return answered the many questions pertaining lo the proper conduct of successive crops as eagerly asked by the novice. Hoeing in the heat of dune and .Inly, with the perspiration rolling down bis lace bands blistered and aching back long rows belore biiii and accustomed hands belore him Oh! how manfully did the young man struggle against the odds, and us each low yvas ended, sing joyfully, Hummer bff'iic jou, Huniaiftr tit-hiiii! you.

It doesn't sccni right to dispute them, but hero is a story told by an old soldier whoso children told it to me, that shows how even books may bo mistaken. For long weeks tho grand army of the Involution had suffered from hardship and cold, as few armies had suffered be fore. Their faces were pnlo and thin, their forms were bowed and shivering with cold (for they yvere clothed in rag.) and tjieir feet, all bare, or covered with nothing but fragments of leather, left bloody marks upon (be snow wherever they w alked. They might have disbanded and gone away to their homes for chilli ing and shelter; but there was a country lo save, liberty lo win, and their noble commander lo follow into (he heart of liei v bailies.
