He lived in the brick house on the hill, and she lived in the cottage opposite, and they were mortal enemies. He despised her because she kept a canary and two cats, and she hated him (or his aflection for a huge mastiff and a knock kneed horse. " Why on earth the man don't get a de cent horse is more than I can imagine ! " she would say as he plodded up to the door. 44 1 believe he is too mean and miserly to buy one." iliss Briggs would hardly have felt pleased had she known that 3Ir.' Perry rode back and forward on this old, worn-out piece of horseflesh merely for the purpose of annoy ing her. They never spoke, but managed to keep up a perfect warfare by disagreeable man ners and wrathful glances. She sat by the hour beneath the canary bird in the "window, with her cats perched upon the sill, and her knitting in her hand, throwing glances of scorn to the opposite side, where he, with cigar and newspaper, and boots a few inches higher than his head, received and paid them back with in terest. The detestable dog came over and ran through her garden, destroying all her beautiful tulips and hyacinths,* and she gave him a hot bath, which sent him howling to his master, and when said master remon strated, sent word that she would treat him worse next time. Her little red cow broke through his en closure and devoured his turnips and cab bane, and he led her home, and informed Miss Briggs that a second offence would give her a comfortable pasture in the pound. For two years they lived and fought, and no one could bring about peace between them. It was a pity, the neighbors all said, 4 'for Miss Briggs was a dear little soul, and there was not a tiner man in the country than Mr. Perry." 4 'Julia, my love," says Mrs. Perkins one afternoon, as she entered the cosy parlor, "1 am going to have a party, and I want you to come down in the afternoon to tea, and re main during the evening. Every one will be there." 44\Vill that old bachelor over the way be there ?" "Mr. Pern,- ? Oh, yes ! We couldn't get alone without hiui."* 4 'Then that settles the matter. I shan't go." "Now, Julia, don't be so foolish. If you remain at home he will think that you are , afraid of him." Miss Briggs thought the matter over. "Well, it would look a little like if, and she would not have him think so for the world ? the conceited wretch ! Mrs. Perkins went home, and it was ar ranged that Miss Briggs was to spend the afternoon and remain for the party. She was a pretty little woman, and it was always a puzzle to every one why she never married. She had a round, rosy face, clear brown eyes, beautiful hair, and a sweet mouth, and although past thirty, there was not a smarter woman in town. " She stood before the gilt-framed mirror in her little chamber, and fastened her lace collar over the neck of her maroon-colored dress with a plain gold brooch, and began to think she looked very well. There was a bright, healthy llush upon hex cheek, aud her eyes were full of light and beauty. She* walked into Mrs. Perkins's sitting room, and found that lady awaiting her with a smiling face. She thought she must be in a very good humor, but said nothing, allowing the good lady to ?>mile as long and as pleasantly as she wished. She understood it all when supper-time came and Mr. Perkins entered, followed by Mrs. Perry. This was a well-laid plan to make the two become friends. Miss Briggs bit her lips, and inwardly vowed that "nothing should tempt her to give "that man" her hand in friendship. She hated him. lie was placed directly opposite her at the table, and many times forced to pass the biscuit, cakes, or preserves, and Miss Briggs accepted them, although she declared to Mrs. Perkins alter supper that thev nearly choked her. Before evening they both were persuaded to overlook the horse and cow difficulty ! ^ > and Aliss Brings \vus friirliten dA1" ir?ini1 herse,f ,alkinS lollim with Ho"?* 11 Peasant familiarity.

At the end of the evening Miss briggs was at the door, ready to depart when called. %< Miss Briggs, I am going right up your wav. Will you ride ? " Would she ride, and behind that Old horse, and beside that detestable man? She was wondering whether she would or not, when Mrs. Perkins came aud tri umphantly led her out, and packed her into the carriage. It was as dark as pitch, and they had to let the horse go his own way, and iind it the best he could. He did very well until they reached the cottage, and then he was bewildered. Mr. Perry spoke, jerked the reins, but to iip purpose, lie then took out the whip. WhetbCr his natural dislike of the article, or the meuwries 01 tlie indignities lie had buffered from t,ie hands of the owner of the cottage overcame him, it is hard to decide : but at all events he ku*ed up his heels, ran a few rods, and ^'.overturning the j buggy and its precious conuuts* Miss Briggs was up in a foment, un harmed, but Mr. Perry was as siltO1 a* r^e grave. She ran shouting through the /'ark riess until 31 r. Terry's <? help" came oui .to. her assistance. They found the man hall dead beneath the carriage ; and while Dan was at work, Aliss Briggs ran home for her servant. After much hard labor they suc ceeded in extricating him from the wreck ; but he was senseless, and they bore him home and sent for the village doctor. Upon examination they found his leg to be broken, and thus Miss Briggs's enemy was at her mercy. The days* and weeks that followed were dreadful ones to the poor sufferer, but Miss Briggs never left him. Day and night she stood betide him, and her little plump hand administered to every want. He forgot the cow and his turnips. JFle forgot the cats and canary. He only saw a patient little woman, with a pretty rosy race, trim figure, and tender hands ; and, would you believe it, he fell in love with ber. How could he help it ? She had sat by him through the long, weary days of pain ; she had brought him her preserves, her wine, and nice invigorating cordials ; she had made him blanc mange and delicate custards, and in all probability saved his life. What could he do? Nothing but fall in love. "Miss Brings," he said one day, when he was able to sit up. " Well, Mr. Perry f? " You have been very good to me, and I feel as though I owed you a great deal." '* There, now, stop right where you are. You owe me nothing." "But would you mind if I trespassed a little further on your good nature '( " " Not at all." " Well, Miss Briggs, will you take me in charge for the rest of my natural life '( " " What 1" "Will V?u marry me ? There!" i Misa Briggs blushed, and her answer came thus: i " I will marry you." There was a wedding a few weeks later, and Mrs. Perkins prepared the wedding supper. Mr. and Mrs. Perry live in the brick house, and tbo cottage Is rented to a young man and bis wife, to whom Mrs. Perry be queathed her cat and canary. The mastiff and knock-kneed old horse are with their forefather. Story of a Trnnk-How ? Hosband Tun a' lit Hi* Wift Valuable li&Monn m Trnnh-Pacfclnif-How abe Profit ed by It. [From tbo Cincinnati Times.] We heard a touching story of a wife's in fluence and a husbandrs example this morn ing. A gentleman in this city whose better half is considerably younger than himself? in fact, he is old enough to be her father became quite jealous of her on account of a disposition he bad discovered in her to flirt with the men. He could charge her with no absolute wrong, but her continued co quetry exasperated him to such an extent that, in a tit of wrath, he came home one dav and declared they must separate. They were boardintr, and he said she might stay there, but he would pack up his things and get out. Her conduct was un endurable, he said, and he wouldn't be tortured any more. So he flew around and gathered up his effect* with a view to pack ing them in ?i trunk. The work of packing up begun, when his wife, who had been weeping, fell upon his neck, with choking sobs and lamentations, begging that he would reconsider his vote on reconstruction and not take the desper ate step he meditated. The husband faltered a little at this. He became confused, and instead of packing his best breeches in the trunk he tried to stuff them inside of his vest. Then he laid his handkerchief carefully away in the trunk and blew his nose in a box of paper collars. His wife's tears at length conquered, and he relented. He discontinued packing up to pack off, and they embraced aud made up. It was not long after the reconciliation, however, before he caught bis wife chatting and laughing most violently with a 4th street drv goods clerk, a young and hand some fellow, and his jealous wrath returned with greater force than ever. This time he certaiuly would be off. He hurried home, and when shortly after his wife followed him, she found him with his trunk packed, and he in the act of locking it. Then the previous scene was reenacted, onlv it was of longer duration. It required a ?reater quantity of tears, more and more earnest entreaties, and sighs of much greater size to melt him this time. He melted, though, and the trunk was again unpacked. But there came vet another and more ag "l avating cause for the old fellow's jealousy. It really looked this time as though it would be three times and out, or rather off. He had been away from the city, and he learned on his return that every night during his ab sence his wife had been seen at the theatre with the good-looking clerk aforesaid. Tears and protestations ot innocence were of no avail then. While they were going on he continued packing his trunk in the most deliberate and artistic manner. The expe rience he had had in packing that trunk was made available. He eeonomized space so well there was room left, and he asked her sarcastically if t here was any little thing of hers she would like to pack away there to keep things from shucking around. Then he shut the trunk, and the spring came to gether with a vicious snap, lie buckled all the straps with provoking coolness, while his wife was tremulating on the verge of hysterics. H e buckled a great leather strap around it, and finally tied it up with a piece of bed-cord. During all t his time the wife was grieving as though her heart would break. At last, finding that tears could not melt him, she I resorted to a woman's last expedient ? she swooned. This was just as her cruel aud hard-hearted husband was going out of the door to get an express wagon. He hesi tated, looked at the prostrate and senseless foim 011 the floor, fumbled at the door knob, took a step or two in the hall, turned back, stopped auain, and finally came to the rescue. The result may be guessed. The trunk was unpacked again, and all was serene. The next day he was surprised on going to his dinner to liud his wife absent. He found in her stead, however, a little note lying on the bureau, which ran as follows : ' 44 Dear Old Hussy: Moved by your ex ample in packing-up, 1 have been tryint; mv hand in packing*up, also, as you will find by examining the drawers and closet, i think you will acknowledge 1 have suc ceeded very well for a first attempt. As the lock of my trunk was not in first-rate condition, I borrowed your strap, but I will return it the first opportunity. You will perceive that 1 have taken nothing of yours. I had enough of my own (princi pally bought by myself before marriage) to till the trunk, and so didn't have to take any little thing of yours 4 to keep things from shucking around.' " You are now at liberty to pack your trunk and pack off as soon as you please, as 1 intend to do. Thanking you tor thu valuable lessons you gave me in packing, I do not remain Yours, Julia." She had eloped with a good-looking dry goods clerk.

Book and job printing neatly EXECUTED AT THIS OFFICE* PEBMANESTT CURE OP GRAVEL OP TWELVE TEABS' 8TANDIITG STONE PASSED AND TQ Dr. Helmbold: Dear Sir, ?It Is with much ple*#urethat I write yon upon facts respecting myself. I do not know hardly how to express myself. I have been Jor the last ten or twelve years the greatest sufferer man could be and live ; but more sometimes than others. The complaint was the "kidneys" and ?'bladder." Have consulted doctors both In Massachusetts and this State, and taken pills, I may say, by the qnart, also liquored medicines ; bnt found no relief from any, and got worse the last six months. I was so that I coald scarcely get about. I could not rest night or day. It would soon have been "all up" with me If I had not e^en your advertisement In the Berkshire Courier headed "Kidneys." I read It through, and thought I would try It. I purchased a bottle, bnf, mind you, I had not much faith In It. . Why should I, when I had been trying so many things and cost me so much ? Well, I began taking It, and before I had taken the first bottle I felt bad ; but I finished It and got another. By the time I took half of the second I still got woTse (apparently). When I walked It ceemed as If my right kidney was falling from Its place, and I felt really bad. I felt so bofore I had finished the second that I had made up my mind It was no use trying any more ; and all this time the "Bnchu " was doing Its work, but 1 did not know It, so I gave It up and went to Hartford, to odc of the best doctors In the city. He said It was the neck of the bladder, and I should have to undergo an operation. He gave me medi cine, and I went home quite down-hearted. On Sunday I was unable to go to church. I had not taken any of his medicines, but on my return con tinued using "Buchu," and late In the afternoon of that day I passed the ugliest stone or gravel you ever saw, covered over with little pieces which col lected together. It looks the color of a mud-tur tle, and hard as a flint. So you see the "Buohn " was doing Its work, although I was feeling so badly, i procured another bottle, thinking there might be others ; but since that passed, which Is eight weeks ago last Sunday, I have been as well as ever I was In my life. I have the stone securely wrapped, and those who have seen It In this place are surprised This Is a true story of my case, and you are welcome to make such use of my name as you thluk proper. I am pretty 'well known In Berkshire ; also In Connecticut. The advertise ment saved me. Why not publish more? The Sprlnefield Republican 1b a wide-spread paper. If any one wishes to see this wonder they can do so. I could write all day, but I think I have said enough for this time, as I remain, ever your well-wisher, EDWARD L.

KEYSER Is a phrslclan of over- thirty years' experi ence, and a graduate of the Jefferson Medical College, and of the University of Medicine and Surgery of Philadelphia. Mr. H. T. Hkmbold: Dear sir, ?In regard to the question asked me as to my opinion abont Buchti, I would say that I have used and sold the article in various forms for the past thirty years. I do not think there is any form or preparation of It I have not used, or known to be used. In the various dis eases where such medical patent would be indi cated. You are aware, as well as myself, that It has been extensively employed In the various dis eases of the bladder and kidneys, and the reputa tion it has acquired, in my judgment, Is warranted by the facts. I have seen and used, as before stated, every form of Buchu? the powdered leaves, tincture, fluid, extracts, and I am not cogniz*nt of any pre paration of that plant at all equal to yours. Twelve years' experience ought, I think, to give me the right to Jndge of its merits, and, without prejudice or partiality, I give vou precedence over all others. I value your Buchu for Its effects on patients. I have cured with it, and seen cured with it, more diseases of the bladder and kidneys than I have ever seen cured with any other Buchu or any other proprietary compound of whatever name.

I can scarcely find language sufficiently strong to express my heartfelt gratification at the wonderful cure your " Buchu " has effected. For four years I have suf ferrd beyond description. All my friends (wJth my self) came to the conclusion that my case was incur able. Accident placed your advertisement in my hands. I commenced taking your " Buchu."

(I would give One Hundred Dol lars a bottle if I could not get it at any other price)? I am entirely cured. I m06t earnestly re commend It to all those suffering from disease.
