Once upon a time, a maiden
Bat beneath a hawthorn tree ;
And her lover, close beside her,
Murmured vows of constancy.
Fairer, sweeter than Ike blossom
Hanging over her was sic.
And her heart, within her bosom,
Throbbed and glowed tumultously.
Both were young, and fund, nnd foolish,
Neither rich the story goea :
Ma waa proud and Pa was mulish,
Great their love and great their wots ;
So they kissed, and wept, Rnd parted,
Swearing to be ever true !
Did the maiden broken-hearted ?
Was the the lover faithful to ?
VihBW 1 She wed a wealthy b inker
(Slander whispered she was sold)
And no city dnmesont rank her
With her pockets full of gold ;
Queen at every ball nnd party,
Decked with lace nnd jewels rare,
Looking very fresh nnd h mly,
Reigns the victim of d. span-.
He confound, the lucky fellow
Took a widow twice his years,
Eal and forty, ripe and mellow.
With a race of little dears ;
Big plantation, servants plenty,
Splendid mr-nsion, pomp nnd ease,
Cured the boy ish love of twenty,
Thai incurable disease.
Learn from this, young doming lovir,
In your anguish not to break
Anything of greater value
Than the promises you make ;
Hearts were made to put in motion
lilood ihat othcrvise would cool ;
Pleasure, profit nnd promotion,
Gratitude at Cupid's school.

CHAPTER I.
Chillies Gardner was n young BM reliant en
gaged in a good busincs which yielded him
profitable returns. Being decidedly of the o
pinion that 'it is not good for Ml to be alone,'
lie married a young lady, the daughter of a
country clergyman' whom ho certainly would
have passed over, had wealth been his object.
Bui he thought, and wisely, that a cultivated
mind and amiable disposition, united as in the
present case to personal charms, gave bet
ter promise of happiness than the largest por
tion.
Marian Watson had been well-educated in
the best sense of the term. While due atten
tion had been paid to the ornamental in her
training, the useful
had not been neglected. i
She was accordingly equally well-fitted to
grace the drawing-room al to superintend the
operatiot & ol I he kitchen, ami in either posi
j.
tion showed herself perfectly at home.
Charles (lard Dor had been nursed in opu
Jenc, and as a natural consequence was rath
er eareles in his expenditures. He thought it
n icessary to live in a certain style, and having
no clear idea how much it required to support
it, placed this matter entirely in the hands of
others, and took no further thought about it.
Haviug promised so much let us introduce
the newly married couple to the reader before ,
the hor.ymoon had fairly passed
The breakfast-table
ting accompaniments h
together with iU invi-
d received a full share
of attention, when Charles, pushing back his
chair, said, with It smile
'Well, Marian, .is we have got to be quite a
staid married couple, comfortably settled down,
as the saying is, suppose we have a little ex
planation about household expenses, and so
forth?
'With all my heart,' said his wife, 'I think
all such matters ougqt to be conducted with
system, and Drougnt wtuim nxco minus.
That is the only safe way.'
'I have been thinking,' said Charles, 'that
it will be best to set apart a certain sum for
househo'd expenses, the'supply or ihe table,
and so forth. What do you say to two hun
dred dollars per month?'
'Two hundred dollars a month,' said Mari
mi, who, being accustomed to the limited men
age of a country clergymen with a small sala
ry, viewed matters in ratliei a different light
from husband. 'Two hundred dollars a month
merely for the supply of the table! Haven't
you pinced it rather too high, Charles?'
'And do you really think it so very much,
my prudent little wife?' said Charles, smiling,
'You must remember that our position requires
us to live in a certain style, and that this can
not be supported without money.'
That is true, Charles; but are you very sure
that your income will allow of such an expen
diture?' 'Oh, certainly, my very careful Marian.
business was never better, and I don't expect
to fail just yet.'
But Charles do you approve of living up to
one's income? Isn't it best to save something
for a rainy day? Business may nut always be
as good as it is now. Reverses may come, and
then'
'Positively, Marian, you are a perfect croak
er. My very wise little wife, there is one thing
in which I show more wisdom than you in
not anticipating what is very disagreeable to
think of, and may never come. Sufficient unto
the day it is the evil thereof-' There; you have
the authority of Scriptnre. Troubles be hang
ed! say I, and 'he sooner the better.'

convince me that it isn't better to make prepa
rations for a reverse. If it dosen't come, all

harm.
'I ice you are perfectly incorrigible, and
like every woman, prepared to have vour own
way. W til. I will yield so far aa this. I shall
place in your hands two hundred dollara a
month to d. fray our household expnsc, and
I you arc at lib- rly to save as much as you please

reaoy undertaken to employ them upon your
husband.'
CHAPTER II.
Mrs. Gardner was entitled to all the credit
! she claimed. She was really a good manager.
1 Her husbsnd could not but acknowledge it, as
day by day he observed the tasteful and ele-

neatness and propriety with which everything
He had quite forgotten the conversation re
corded in our first chapter, and was only sur
prised that his table presented so good an ap
pearance at what seemed to him so niodarato a
cost He once proposed to increase tli month
ly sum which he placed in his wife's hands,
but she declined, saying that she found it q'tite
sufficient.

This is not at all necessary. Mrs. Gardner
had plenty of time for her friend-., In r music
and her books. She did'r.t spend above hail
an hour daily in the kitchen, and then only
superintended the operation of the servants
Rut this half hour was amply sullieienl. The
pervanU were sati-lied that every act of waste
fulness or neglect on their part would be no
ticed, and tin n e lse uf their mistress for this
short space of lime operated as an cHVetual
check upon them.

was no imposiiion.
All this tojk very little time. Everything
was brought under' complete system, and no
clock-work could be better regulated.
From the description of Mrs. Gardner's
mode of managemi n , v liich we Lave given
somewhat in detail, because we think it really
a good one, nnd deserving of being iniitited,
we turn to a diiFVrent sc ncc. The curtain
falls, nn 1 when it rises once more, the reader
will please lo imagine that a period of five years
hts slipped by a period, by the by, which has
witnessed the introduction of two little stran
gers into the household of Charles and Marian.
This, as 1 h ive remarked, is by the way, nn I
has no special connection with the very practi
cal moral which I am trying .o elicit from this
little sketch uf mine.

'And yet he is the only business man who
is likely to have spare funds at his disposal.'
'That is true, and I cannot do worse than

; gentleman'.! counting room, 'I have a favor to

for a few days .'
'My dear Gardener, I would with great pies- 1

times. The

les, dejectedly. 'Then you can't oblige me?
I should be be willing to pay a high premium.'
'Of course, but as I said, I should be hap
py to oblige you if it were in my power.'
Mr Gardener retired in a desponding frame
of mind. He was aware that nearly all his
friends were as mucii pressed as he, and that
not one of them probably would be able to ad
vance him the required sura.
It turned out as he anticipated. Those to
whom he applied were verry sorry indeed that
they were unable to help him, but it was quite
out of the question.
in the evening his wife noticed that his mind
was troubled. Usually, on his return home,
he devoted a few minutes to romping with his
little boys, Charles and Arthur, who on that
account hailed papa's return as the signal for
a noisy demonstration. Now he was silent
and moody.
'Pray what is the matter with you, Charles?
asked Maiian, playfully. 'You look as discon
tented as if you never had but one friend in
the world, and had just lost that one.'
'It is something Marian, which you could
not remedy, so why need you know it. The

after our marriage, about the support ot our

continue the work you have so well begun.

'But' said Mrs. Gardner, smiling, '1 thought
your nutto was, 'Trouble be hanged, nnd the

'Your savings,' retorted Charles, 'will make

There is something v.ry touching aftt pa
thetic lit i circumstance m ntioned io us a
Dhihi or two ngo, in the sick room of a fri nd.
A poor little girl, crippled and deformed from
her birth, was sebed with a disorder which
thr-ate ed to remove her 'rom a world where
she bad sulfcred much. She was n very all'ec
tionate child, nnd no word of complaining had
ever passed her lips. Somitimes the tears
wou'd come in her eyes, vtv n she saw in her
presence children more phys cally .blessed than
herself, at the severity of the deprivation, but
that waa nil. She Was so gentle, so consider
ate of giving pain, nnd so desirous to please
nil nroun 1 In r, thai she had eadevaa herself
to eve y member of her family, and to all who
knew her.
At length it was seen, so rapid had been
the pi ogress of her diseai.e. that she could not.
long survive. She grew w r e, until one right,
in an interval of pain, she called kef mother
to her bedside, nnd said, 'Mother I am dying
now. 1 hope I shall see you and my brothers
and sisters in heaven!' And so the poor little
sorrowing child pissed for, ver away.
Happening o mtcl with the above simple
but no less heart-re rhing inc (lent in Harper's
Magazi e, it occurred loine that perhaps that
hy tre .suring it up for those who read the
Young R apcr, I might awaken in their hearts
such thoughts as could not be forgotten.
And now, my young friends, do you nil ex
pect to be in company hereafter with that de
formed, but pious, . patient child, before the
Savior in heaven? If to, will you not then id
ways try to he as submissive, affectionate and i
only as this little stifl'eier was? So when you
come to die, you, loo, will go to that home :
above, where there .si no sorrow nor sickness,
but wheie all U calm, holy and undying. '

There is a story current ot a nephew of
Washington Irving, who, while recently amus
ing himself in a boat on the North River was
angrially ordered by five Germans who mistook
him for a ferryman, to 'row them o'er the fer-
ry. In addition to the order he received a
round scolding for not being at his post, and
causing them to miss the cars. Saying DOtk-1
ing. he meekly carried them across charging'
the unfortuate Teutons two shillings a head
and at once returned. The Germans waited
two or three hours but in vain, for a train and
finally found ihe real ferryman, who informed'
them that they had been 'sold' that no train
was due, mil mat, lor a sinning a nead lie
would take them all back to their starting-
; acc wll(!re thpv cou( pass tno n;ilti with

hearty laugh they accepted his offer, rcsolv
i ing that the next time they would find out who
i they were talking to, ere they blew a gentle
man up for not waiting on them.

of which gives nn account of the Boone family.

1717, purchased and settled in what was then

Exeter. He also purchased land in different
places, some as far south as North Carolina,
nnd that he purchased and laid out George

all appeared to have been Episcopalians." Oh,
