Wealthy, high touetf, a rising lawyer, every body court ed hi in. lie liud passed liis L went v-tirhlli year in the vain hope of finding some paragon who wou,iu epciiani ins senses, and prove to be bis idvaL, In the search fter this yet undiheovered perfection, hy had bet onie weary. At I ant one early suiuiiitT day he found himself at Msple" wood, bVauiilul village among the hills. He was delighted with its sur roundingt", and resolcd to remain a day or two at the little iun. To Lis amazement, he found fruit for breakfast, though it was still June, '.'It is like living in Paris," he said lo him self, sipping tiis cott'ee. "These straw beriies are the best, lever ate," he re marked to tl e. landlady. "Do they ;row in your garden?" "Oh, no! these are sprfte that Miss Siajnely raised. We've a young lady here who has a fino garden, and we bur of her because we always gel the best,1' snid the hostess. ''Her father died las, year; $ whs a clergyman, and, led nothing but his house and natdeii. Miss Stainly supports her mother and her self." 'MissSlaincly must be quite acrenius'' said Fred, taking up his paper, Indeed, she is 1 her garden is a sight to oeseen. liiev send tor nnlis a round lor Her truit and flowers." 'An old maid. I Diesume." muttered Fred. "No, indeed ; as fresh and blooininrr a young lady, and well-maimeied as vou could wish to see. Everybody loves Mig.s fied smiled to himselt, and soon for- gRt Miaa Stamely. Rut some hours af ter, when out fcr a walk, he saw a little brown cottage that arrested hi atteu tiou ty nis pieuiresoueness, Here was Tiiie:epveiVd porch, with the Wisteria eliaiLiiiitr up all the corners, and there were ureat double roses, full ot sweet odprs, blushing beside the pretty en trance. Just then a lilte tov came out of tho gate with a bahkel of si ra bellies. '"fray, my lad " said rred. "who lives nerer" "Miss Stainely, sir," was tho reply. Fred glanced at the sirawbet'i-iea. hey looked doubly beautiful now that he knew a young lady, and one said to pretty, had bicked them. Ho won tiered if her finueis were fair. Then he laughed at himself at th,e(vy ofsuuh au llllfl, Suddenly a voice sounded so near that startled him. 'iPlease bring ,e my puriiing-shears, Jauey. Thin vino needs attention," it said. Heavens ! is she strong enough to Wield them?" thought Fred, with a sort horror. i-Ali! the pour lit tie thinsrS ! how I Hate lo cut them ! nut tlipy iust go, said the voice. And Fred noticed how crespiug and tender, how sott, low and womanly the voice was. "And here's my darling little concord!" she went on, "putting Out such liny, moist bud, I gave it up a week ago, ami came near cutting it down ; how glad I am I spared it." Ry ,his time Fred was in ajjony to see the lips iroiu which proceeded such sweet s)Uti). At that moment a gen-llu-l'aetd, eltjerly woman appeared at the back door and said ' Rose, dear, the sua is getting too hot." "Yes, mother," was the reply ; and a slight, girlish figure, the face completely shadad, by a gurJoflrhat, came blithely forward, sprang up the steps, and van ished. "Rose ! what a pretty natr)e,"niused Fred, metre interested than (i had ever found himself before. "Attn) sucl) a little creature. 1 had fancied her large and mascuiue ju face and 'figure, shaw J what a foot I am What iij tl)e girl to me?" True; wbal wa she to him? It was very strange that her voice haunted him A little oouniry-girl who sold vege tables j he woafd not tbiiia; pf her again. Rut tp next day, almost before he knew it, he found himself sauntering to ward the browu cottage. :Jn became near, there was a sot'iid tnnsiol a pi-ano-lorte , well played 1 the 'Wedding Marclv" his favorite ! He slopped, thtin d.rstruck. What it tneau? Could (.he liaiiri thai dug and weeded elicit h. harmonious chords ? . , Presently the miuiu eemed. "She must go ouj, and pull radishes," laurhed Fredj neryopVly tb bffusejf.. x Tlien a bright thought .truck him. She sold berries,' seedlings,' slips. Why outsell some to him? He wpuld, at (east ask her. Vou see, Fred was ft fellpr, and 'faint hearted' coward. In a moment was ushered into a room, which at fir' glance, he took for a habitation rbe fspjes,' iJaiiiring-baikets rustic frames, viuet trained over every wiudow; little grotto of moss and aiell-work in one corner ; bookcases, tastefully erna, mented : tNe piano, with one of the mo', besutilui covers be had ever seen it his ; the carpet like a ped of feri ; (.he chairs and tables quaifjt in their fashron jng. "' ... Iiss Rota Stsjiiloy eamt in, She had. charming, large, grey eye, tinder straight lashes and lips just large enough and weet enough to match thtyoicaFrsd had heard.

"-Mrs. StautoD, drd you say ?" she cried w ith new animation. "Mrs. John Stan ton ?" Fred nodded assent. "Oil how glad I aiu t" she continued. The Stantons were such old frieudti of (ulLer Mother! Mother I" and, she run Impulsively to the door, and called Mrs. Slainley, "here is a gentleman who knows the Stitntons." Then seeing the eyes of Fred fixed on htr, In uudis Kuised admiration, she blushed rasy red Urs. Stalnley came In, and Fred formally introduced liletf. The three were at home together from that moment. They talked of the SluDlons first, then of flowers ; and then Of music. Fred begged for the "Weddinir .Match," and then himself (his touch was ex w- 7. quisite) played a "Cradle 8ong." What hsppy, happy days followed. Soon, red became a privileged gu,ct. Hose grew more lovely, lo his eyes, every day. A fairy, with her hright, brown curls, antf yet a lndv loo, tyisa wuina nwe.e.tly stid Iunoceiuly her st-lt' ui if there had never been prude or cp queues in the world. It was a long wooing, nevertheless, tor Rose Wits, too v(se ta give her heurt until she was sure her suitor was worthy o,f . J tin. alraid reds wealth, was at first against hiut. But love works wonders. There Is not a happier wife, now, la all New York, than Rose, nor a more distinguished leader of society. In summer she and Fred go back to Muplewood ; aud Rose is as fond of flowers aud fruit ss ever. But she is loud est by far of Fred. Ftternn'i ifagaiinf. to "A Few More Left." The most renowned, street-vender in New Y'k, or in (his world, is Henry Smith, the "Rasor-Strop Man," of Nas sau street. Born in England, tjx months Mrer Waterloo, his youth was roving and dissipated, and his devotion to. drink gained hiiu the sobriquet of "Old Soaker," before. h,e was twenty-one. Signing the abstinence pledge tor a month, and then for jite, he became a good husband, an industrious man and au urdeut temperance advocate. In 1842 Iiq sailed in the Ontario, for America. Landjng in New Yk, he soon began to, sell razor strops, and his street speeches were such droll, witty, and sensible mix tures of prose aud poetry, that iu three months he made himself the prince of peuwers. ins sayings were chronicled ill the papers., his portrait was published in the Sunday Atlas, and he eveu ap peared for seven nights at the Olympic Theatre, in Mitchell's play of the "Razor-Strop Man." His lame rapidly spread, nud he made the lour of the union, teaching temperance and ' selling his strops, until Ins characteristic saying, "a lew more felt of the same sort,"" became a household word. He achieved a fortune in a few years, but the spirit of speculation siezed him. and the crisis of 1857 sweot away his last dollar. With unshaken courage and a fresh basket of strops, he begun life u new, visited his native England, and wou much reputation aa a "genuine Yankee peddler." Returning to America, the war lormd. lain at Kotbester, when he eiiliied in a volunteer regiment, lit his left leg be still carries a Gettysburg mus ket bull.

It baa long been our opinion tiiat the high value ot milk as food was not gen- it . , , entity appreciated, ana ine same may oe said of the nutritive qualities of pro- aucis made trom miiic, like cheese. Why is it that the consumption of cheese is so very small iu any New England commu nity, if its high value as lood is at well until mood ? Milk, where it can be as pure as upon the farm, is not only one of the greatest luxuries, but oue of the most highly nu tritive articles of food. 1. O. C. Wig gins, Inspector ot Milk, in Providence, says: "The nutritive value ot miik, as compared with other kinds of animal food, is not genet ally appreciated. The quantity of water in a" good qual ity of milk is 80 per cent. ; iu a round steak, 75 per cent, ; iu fatted beef, 60 per cent, j in eggs, 78 per cent." From analysis made Just winter, he goes on to say: "I estimate sirloin steak reckoning loss from bone at as cents per pound as dear as milk at 24 cents per qnart; round steak at 20 centn, as dear as milk at 14 cents ; eggs at 30 cents per dozen, as dear as milk at 20 cents pi r quart. Many laborers who pay 17 cents lor corned beef, would consider them selves hardly abju to pay '19 cents for. mik, when in tact they could as well af ford to pay 15 cents. If ll)e money expended for veal ar.d pork were expended, for milk, I doubt not it would be an ad aij'tage to both the stomach and po'.ket, especially du ring ihe warm season. Relatively speak ing, then, a quart ol milk at 10 or even 12 cents, is the cheapest animal food that can )o used." Must. Jtotighntan.
