Linallivers had been a district school teacher in Scottslield just four months, when John lleyimlds offered her his hand and heart. bhe was an orphan from infancy, but her father's sister had adopted -and educated ber in a life ol luxury, aud died without altering a iuuub yvurs uciure, leaving ner entire for tune to a charity asylum, Lina, left alone, thanklully accepted the position ot country school teacher procured for her by some friends, and was thinking lie. a hard burden when John came to brighten it. She gave her whole gentle little heart into his keeping at once, ap- jn-i;iiiiiiiH in. meiriuu value Ins Honest, true heart, his frank nature, his slerlino good qualities, and looking with pro found admiration upon his tall, strong trame aud handsome face. ) It a? a perlect love-match, for John lairly worshipped the dainty, relined lit tle beauty lie had married ; and having married her, he took her to his home aud iu all ignorance proceeded to kill her. There was no blame to be laid upon him. Living in the old farm-housp, where he had spent his entire life, the one ambition of his heart was to own land, stock, barns, add a model farm. He had seen his mother cook, churn, teed poultry aud drudge all her lile, and it Lina made odd mistakes she put a willing heart into her work, and soon conquered its difficulties. Surely, he thought, it was an easier life to be mis tress of his home, with the Stanley farm in prospect, than to toil over stupid children iu a district school. He had never seen velvet carpets and lace cur tains, grand pianos, dainty silks and oth er surroundings that had been Liua's from babyhood. He had never heard the wonderlul music the little while hands, all rough and scarred now. could draw from the ivory keys of an organ or piano, or ino clear, pure voice lu song. It was an unknown world to John, where his wife's memory lingered as she scoured tins, strained milk and cooked huge dishes for the farm hands. He would have thought it wicked waste, if not positive insanity, to draw lrom the bank his hard-earned savings to invest them in beautifying his plain, comforta bin home. And Lina lashed her consciousness sharply, telling herself that she was un grateful, repining and wicked. Was uot her John lender, true and levin tr ? Where among her city friends was there a heart like ins? Had she not known he was only a farmer? And t"o the loving little woman toiled aud slaved, undertook tasks far beyond her strength, worked early and late, un til just one year after his wedding day, John Edwards, coming home to his ton, louna lying upon the kitchen floor a lit tle senseless figure, with a face like death and hands that sent a chill to his heart. The doctor, hastily summoned looked grave, and advised perfect quiet and rest. A girl was hired, and John tender ly nursed the invalid, but i hough she grew better, she grew pale and weak- "Take her away awhile," Baid the doc tor; "try change of air. She is'over worked." "Hut," said honest, puzzled John, 'she does nothing but .thu housework for us two. She has no child, aud our sewintr ; . i. 3 ib noii in uen. The doctor looked into his troubled face.

It was delicious to see John's whip open eyes as he entered the parlor of mu treat city notei, aim was shown into the bed-room, whose beauties were quite as bewildering. "The best room," he had told the land lady, and Lina could not repress a cry ol delight at the vista ot a cosy sitting, room with a piano standing invitingly open. "Oh, John 1" she said, "won't yon go iu there and shut the door for five min utes, please?" John obeyed, of course. John, she thought gratefully, refused her nothing now. "How lucky I brought some of my old dresses 1" Lina thought. "I have not worn therir since I was a school marm. Fancy Airs. Edwards scrubbing the floor in this dress!" Ji-hii rubbed his eyes and pinched himself as a little figure sailed into the sitting-room, made him a sweeping court esy, and went to the piano. Was that the little woman who had worn prints und stiu-bonnets so lon? The fair hair was fashionably dressed and b;iuds of blue velvet looped the golden curls. .Iresa ol blue silk, with softest lace trimmings aud ornaments ol pearls, had certainly made a la.ly of Li na. The piano was yielding its most be witching tones to the skilled little fin gers, and John's bewilderment was complete, when a voice of exquisite sweet m. 88, though not powerful, began lo sing. Only one song, full of thrills and qua vers and then Lina rushed from tht. piano into John's arms. "John' darling," she said, "hold mo las:. Don't let mu slip from you !" ' O Liua," he groaned. ""I was not fit to marry such a dainty bird ! But I loved you, little one." "And I love you, John, rough old John ! Let me sing again. 1 am very happy to-day, my husband." But no wonderful thrill rilled tho room now. In a clear, pure voice, full of ex pression, Liua sang, " I kuow Unit my Redeemer llvntli " Every word full like hoi tears on poor John's heart, until as the last chord trembled upon the air, Lina turned to unn, Bit-etching out her arms : " Take me iu your arms, Johnl" He took her tenderly to the room she had quitted so gaily, and replaced her finery by a white wrapper, whose lace trimmings looked like lairy-work to his unaccustomed eye. "Are you tired, love?" he asked, wiiii a nii.miu vi terror at ins nearl. as I - I - I I ... I - I . ne looKeu ui tne wnue wasted lace. " Yes, tired, but happy, John ?" and with a little sigh of enure content, Lina nestled down against the warm heart, w hose every throb she knew was all her own, Mrs. Edwards was to experience her share ot astonishment during her holiday, and it commen-jed by tho apparition of John the next day iu a new suitot hand some clothes, thai well became his man ly figure, lhere was no toppery, but he looKeu a genueman, inougb lie made more than one grimace Iretore he got, as he said, " well shaken into his store clothes." " But John, " she cried, " the Stanly farm ?" " Is Bold, dear. You were right ; we will make our home bo lovely, the Stan ley farm will never cost me a sirh. I have hired two new hands, so as lo have a little more leisure." Can I describe thatiTWcek? What was new to John was old familiar ground to Lina, Central Park was not soon exhausted, aud ihe little guide grew stronger and rosier every day, in John's thoughltttl caie, that provided plenty of pieasanti excuemeui, out guarded against fatigue. It was early in the afternoon of a sun ny day, when a train drew up at the Suottstield station, aud John handed his wondering wile into a neat little one horse carriage uailii g lor them. "A new purchase, dear," he explained. ." We are to have a drive every after noon. Dr. Grey.sou prescribed it" . The house stands where it had always stood, but somehow it has - gradually been undergoing transformation, as il (airy hands were upon it. The dull little sil ling-room has been papered, carpeted, curtained and transformed into a cosy dining-room. The slitl parlor is a bower of beauty, with a fine piano, . the dair ticst of. furniture, soft muslin curtains, and a .carpet covered with bouquets ot exquisite flowers; the bed-rooms are carpeted brightly, aud rejoice in cottage sets, and in the kitchen the most good natured of stoul German girls, awaited Lina's astonished gaze ou her return from the city, and fairly shed tears win n she addressed her in her own language. Tliri.niighboi's stared aud wondered. Comments upon John's folly and ii. providence fell from many lips, and old men, shaking their heads, prophesied ruin lor the Edwards farm. But John was as much astonisned as any of them, when, alter a few years, he found the farm yielding him a largor' in come thait' ever before, "I do believe, Lina," he said one day to a matronly liule woman, ; who was dressing a crowing baby, " that your flower garden. last year was' worth a thousand dollars lo me. i , " John ". . . . - : . "You see it was to get you the infor mation, about the flowers that we first began to take . the agricultural papers ; lhere I found so many useful hi ills, that began to think that I knew nothing about farming.

Editor Having observed your coumc of late on subjects which have a very direct bearing on the temperance question, and no ling the censure and opposition which you re- c-lve from sources whence you might reason ably expi ct support, I came to consider it a duty to inform you of the views of your sub-scriljf-rs out of town, concerning the temper ance laws of your village, and just here let me assert that we have a riyht to a word in thin matter. We do not. it is true, derive any direct ben Hi from the fines Imposed upon drunkards who are thrust into the lockup after being thrust from y;ur dens, uion the street. We do not seek Ibis.

Mr. Editor It is now thirty-four years since the township of Ashtabula was divided Ihe northern portion retaining its name aud the southern poriion taking the name of Ply mouth. The object of the petitioners for the division of the towntbip was, first, to build up a town, and thereby enhance the value ol their property. There were other important reasons, which the writer need not now men tiou. The fond hopes of the petitioners have never been realized, and never can be, for it may now be lakeu for rauted that no consid erable place can be built up within several miles of Ashtabula. Ashtabula has now three railroads and is destined to be a great town. The Ashtabula & Jamestown Branch brings the people of Plymouth much nearer to Ash tabula than before, and it is now believed that it Is for the interest of the two townships to be reunited, and Tor that purpose and to that end a petition will be presented to the Com missioners of Ashtabula county. The people of Plymouth go to Ashtabula to do their bus iness, and there too, they gj for pleasure. We are one people in fact, let us be so iu form.

Dr. Alrige, one of the Pottery Inspectors iu Staffordshire, has put forth a sensible protest against a very pernicious custom, whicii rarely recievi'S sufficient attention either from the medical profession or from the pub-, lie' He says that the women of tho working classes make tea a principal ar ticle of diet instead of an occasional bev erage; they drink It several times a day, and the result is a lamentable amount of sickness: ibis i no doubt the case, and as Dr. Alrige remarks, a portion of the reforming zeal which keeps up such a lively warfare . against intoxicating drinks, might advantageously be divert ed to tbe repression of this very serious evil of tea-tippling among the poorer classes; Tea, in anything beyond mod erate quantities, is as distinctly a narcot ic poison as is opium or alcohol. .

Deacon Smith's Courtship. The Deacon's wagon stopped ono morning before Widow Jones' door, and gave the usual sign that Le wanted some body in the house by dropping the reiqs and sitting double, with his elbows oil Ins knees. Out tripped the widow, live ly as a cricket, with tremendous black ribbons on her snow white cap. Good morning was said on both sides, and the widow waited for what was further tb bo said. -'Well, Ma' arn Jones, perhaps yon don't want to sell one of your cows, now, for nothing, any way, do you ?" "Well, there I Mr. Smith, youcould'nt have spoke my mind belter. A poor lone woman like me, does not know what to do with so many creeters, and I should be glad to trade if we can fix it." So thev adjourned to the meadow, near by, Deacon Smith looked at Roan, then at the Downing cow then at ,'the widow again and so on through tho whole forty. The same call was made every day for a week ; but the Deacon could not de cide. ! On a Saturday, when the widoif Jones was in a hurry to get through with her baking for Sunday, and had ev er so much to do in the bouse, as all farmers' wives and widows have ou Sat urday, she was a little impatient. Dea con Smith was as irresolute as ever. "That 'ere short-horned Durham cow is not a bad looking beast ; but I don't know" another look at the widow. "The Downing cow I knew before the late Mr. Jones bought her of Major Downing." Here he sighed at the allusion to the late Mr. Jones; she sighed, and both looked at each other It was a highly interesting moment. ' ' f "Old ltoan is a faithful old mi'.cb cow, and sO id Hriiidlb; but ' I have knowu better." A long stare sncceded this speech. The pause was getting awkward, and at last Mrs. Jones broke out "Law s ! Mr. Snrlh, if I'm the cow you want, say so !" '. ' Tho intentions of the Deacon- ani widow Jones were published next day. A woman applied to a magistrate for a warrant against a neighbjr, saying: "Sho called me a thief, your Honor.
