Quite a Mistake.
In the thriving village of Holly thorn
there were, as is common to such places,
a church, post-oHice, a couple of stores,
a district school, the said school beins;
taught by a youiiir lady w10 had o w.kit
ow ed mother aud hi others and si'siei s to
assist in support ing.
For the sake ot economy. Miss Eva
Stanley "hoarded around" among the
scholars, and was considered a paragon
among teachers. Her lather had been a
respectable mechanic, but died after two
years of illness,, ivhichc bitterly impover
Mti4xrt&Vj iuTmilyi' i ICvk had, however,
she being the eldest received a good,
plain education before this great calami
ty came upon them, and noble-hearted
and unsellish, begau her work of assist
ing in the support.
Tim last week previous to a holiday
vacation she had been boanViiirr -with a
Mis. Carpenttr, wh was-braking1 'gigaiit
tio prepawions forguesU she expected
from New York.
"You noyer met my brothers, Eva,"
she said, and then began to give the pret
ty young teacher a description ot them.
'There' Sam, George and Johnny, the
youngest : aidrich times as they have
wlmi tUH g6 ut hero to rest and rus
ticate, as they call it ! lint, dear mo 1 I
don't get much rest or peace, for they
are like a lot of boys let out of school.
Such tricks and brauk one ever saw
The last time'tuey visited 'nio all togelh
er, John and Sam actually cut a pano of
glass from the window aud pelted
George out of mar best room with snow !
You see there is a regular strife for that
particular room, for tho bed is a spring
one, and they say they don't sleep on
any other in tho city. .Hut, they don't
get iu there this tirac.JJiitti ceHaiki,! Io
I intend to keep you in that room, and
so end tho controversy. I am so afraid
they will break or ruin something that I
am glad you are here. It may keep
'''"Fiiaof jdsff' altsdoii occupy any other
room, Mrs. Carpenter, and do not wishJ
to incommode your brothers 1 have no
right to do so."
"No you shan't, Eva," peremptorily
exclaimed her hostess j "and w hat is the
use of your going hom'Vncatlofir'ffi;ek?
You can stay hero just as well as not,
atidytlo, yotjr , peeing on my machine.
Yo'ur'mothVr has enough mouths to feed,
I'uess, and won't iniwryoVirlii''M',,'-
The subject was dropped, and the en
tire household retired early, for oa the
morrow the brothers, young, ardent and
full of lif, Mere to In there. IStit with
out sending a-iy word ol their intention,
they had concluded lo take the evening
tram, which would lam them at Holly
I horn about bed-time. George and John
did so, and when safely seated in ibo
cars, bepan to speculate Hbout the ab
sence ot Sam.
"No reason upon earth, why he should
not have been along," said George,
"No, for he told me this morning ho
would ceiluinly bo on hand," replied
"I can't make It out, miles he's taken
the five o'clock train by mistake."
"Not a bit of it," laughed John, who
fancied he understood the entire pro
gramme. "It is moro likely ho took that train
on purpose to get into Hannah's spare
bedroom and make us take up with straw
tick and feathers."
"I didn't think of that, but I reckon
you are right, V must contrive to get
him out somehow."
"Ret your lileou that."
The brothers put their heads together
und laughed merrily over some scheme
for outwitting Sam, aud accordingly,
when the train t cached Hollyilioiu
about eleven o'clock, they approached
the house of their sister in a very st;:ilthy
Climbing the fence in the rear, they
softly opened a window and gained ac
cess to I lie pantry, where thev demolish
ed a mince pie ami a quantity of dotigh
ntitx. Then, with appetites appeased,
they removed their boots and prepared
lo investigate the "beet room" stole
along the hall, which was dimly lighted
by the moon, ascended the stairs and
reached the door. The faint rays of ihe
moon disclosed a chair piled with cloth
ing, and they could distinctly trace tho
outlines of a form beneath the bed-
clothes, aud had not the remotest idea
but that Sam was enjoying sweet repose
upon Hannah's best Tied.
A few whispered words were exchang
ed, and then, as softly aud lightly as it
they had been shod with dowu, they
"All ready," whiskered George.
Quick as thought they seized upon the
form ot the sleeper, bed clothes and ull,
and bore it swiltly down the stairs and
out into the snow, aud were just about
to deposit it in a huge drift, when a
shrill scream broke the stillness of the
night, and oh ! horror 1 it was that of a
woman, and in their consternation, they
dropped their burden plump into the
middle of the drift.
"Good heavens !" exclaimed George,
"it isn't Sam, but some woman, as I'm a
sinner, and she has tainted. Kuti aud
With admirable presence of mind, be
lifted the limp form ot Eva Stanley and
carried her into the house. But her cry
had already been heard, and the inmates
came rushing into the hall just as be ap
peared. "George! John! for goodness sake,
what does this mean, aud who have you
there V asked Mrs. Carpenter in a breath,
"Blessed it I know, betrau George,
"thought it was San-, so we oncluded to
giye him a duck in the snow, for getting
into the best bed and trying to euchre
us Quick! I believe she has fainted,"
"Just like you !" scolded Hannah, as
she assisted in depositing Eva once more
in the bed from which die had been so
unceremoniously taken. "Beginning
your tricks upon each other before you
get into the house. Clear out, now !"
Long lielore she had finished her li
ra Je her discou. lilted brothers had taken
themselves down stairs, where they al

Some time after midnight he was de

and removed his boots. Then h-s ijuiet

he, "my tine chaps, you are in clover,"

of the room being occupied. Garments

mistress, ami there was Sam, w ith the
empty pitcher in his hand, and tho very

said with great difficulty keeping back
her laughter. "Those boy are nicely

some tricks to play upon each other ;
aud," continued she, by way of apology,
"they are so confined in their offices und
stores during most of the year, that
they let entirely loose when they get
out here. But you are safe now."
Hannah kissed her charge, aud went
down lo see about the buys, who, as
soon as they were fairly shut up in the
regions below, began to thoroughly ap
preciate the joke; and now Sum who
was as deep in thu mud us they iu the
mire, they gave no quarter.
"I'll be blamed if I know what it all
means," said Sam, looking in confusion
at his brothers, who were rolling aud
kicking in convulsions of langhler.
"Wail," replied Georgp, ""until Han
comes, and Bee it you don't find out!"
and he gave vent to another peal.
Sam had not smiled, and sat looking
the very picture of discomfort and
perplexity, nut answered :
"For heaven's sako bold on, boys 1
I'm willing to admit that I'm badly

Geoige,still holding his sides. "It means

" I coufess to see the point, but can't

At this moment Hannah came in aud.

The Rights of Some Women.
We have in mind two among the
most agreeable women we have ever
met, both in manners and general culti
vation, who are tilted personally to
adorn any drawing-room, and who can
converse intelligently on any subject
which may be broached there, but who
are not iu general society, iu the town
where they live, simply because one of
them is a dressmaker and the other a
milliuer. Both devote their evenings to
reading and study t they travel, they
hear the best music, and are familiar
with the best thoughts of tho day ; and
to tho few who are really ocquainted
wiin mem, iney are valued friends.
But they are not often invited because
nobody thinks of it. Can society afford
do without such women as these ?
And their case is not exceptional. It is
true, that there are scores ot young girls
our shops whoso breeding and whole
appearance are very questionable, and
who could not tie received, at present,
into polite society. But do we hold out
any inducements to them to cultivate
themselves? Do they see that those in
their position who have beoome refined
and intelligent are any better off, social
ly, than themselves? Nay, msr no

plant was used in inacy cases of smalls

spring of 'CO, with decided succuss,' It
does not sueiii to shorU-u the duration of
the disease, but very materially mit gales
its symptoms, in allaying fever and Jn.

especially so wheu the pistules begin to

It does away with that disposition to
scratch the face uud remove the scabs
before it Is time lor them to fall off ot
their owu accord. It also prevents the'
appearauco of pits that often occur.
This remedy was also professionally
denounced at that lime; but notwith
standing the condemnation, many per
sons used it, and are ready to teuify to
its good results. The history of this'
plant has beeu written. It, too, unfor
tunately, had a humble origin. It was
discovered aud brought iuto use by a
squaw in treating a British scldier, in'
New Brunswick, for small-pox, several

remedies were discovered and brought
