SliUer. the miller' was a handsome,
but silent and odd, "old- bachelor."
He looked—from the crown o£ his
head to the soles.of his boots^as ilhe
hod-just been rolling in the .flour he
hod ground. His fine old horse,
waS born black, carried so much flouf
on his coat that he wia£called"Dusty
Itfiller." 1
Miller the miller had-ipne marked
peculiarity. He would ffirdly speak
to women. He had been left an. or
phan, and a hard-hearted woman
had made his boyhood haid. He .was
poor in youth, and his early court
ships had not ended as he had hoped.
tj'sj.'g Thus his heart had been turned away
from- womenkind into a lonely rut of
-life, and he had fallen under the spell'
Ipte of the evil spirit of a false opinion. .1.
As we said, Miller the miller hadj
a bitter and,violent step-mother
from babyhood. We might bave add
ed that when his father died he had
been passed over to an uncle, whose
.'•••••' wife was a perfect shrew, who was
half insane on cleanliness,.and chased
..... her husband and the boywith broom
and mop, warning ,them- about her
white floorl Those were tho women
Si®!*: be had Brat known
The bad romance of his youth that
had ended so disastrously we will not
ptfe repeat, save only to say that in onere
sS'iV?! spect, one only, they made a:.,very
sour man of Miller, the miller.
Young Miller,'.went the. night after
his uncle's fureral to live with old
Jarvis, the miller, whosesimple house
keeping was done by a brother,' more
noted for his culinary skill than for
his mental power.
Here Miller found a place of peace
—"not a woman "within sight," he
said. .. "It waB very restful."
a vi a a few years, "Billy
went off to live with a Bister, and-the
house was sold.
Miller took theihill. Ho partition
ed off a kitchen and bedroom in the
loft, and made a parlor of one corner,
on the floor with the "hopper," put
into it ared table and for yellow chairs,
and hung up some of those chromos
with which people are punished for
taking-papers they do not want, ^and
never read. .. ...
So he lived here like an ancherite,
his only vexation being the little' girls
who came in on their way from school
to stare down into the hopper, or .who
leaned over his rickety fence to see the
great, block-wheel churning the silver.
10am. He would sometimes mutter:
"They'll get drowned or ground up
some day, and then it'll be laid on to
my will or me."-
When Miller the miller was about
thirty-five years old, his brother died
leaving an orphan boy of ten-year.
Miller brnshed the flour off his* best
clothes, gtt his horse, and rode twenty
miles to the funeral. Now Miller the
miller had a sympathetic heart, after
all.and waen ne returned, he brought
mile Iko(Jtas brother's s.On, tad his
small bundle totho old niill with him.
Ike was.'bdrn and had-always lived
in "the hired m^n's house" on a farm,
in full view of the barnyard, and a
level sweep of hard workup fields. We
can imagine his delight uthe wonders
of his new home, with a^jpuntain be
hind, a stream.' below, a valley, and
fields aind forests on every hand! .. Bp
the mill, with its great wheel dashiiig
and splashing among. -the waters,
sending crystal arrows and rainbow
wreaths in every direction—that-was
to him the glory of all this picturesque
It was like a dream of fairyland.
And this was his home, and he could
see and hear the mill-noises always,
and climb the high banks
of the Btreani,
and catch squirrels, and skip stones
But Miller the miller was not as-well
pleased with his nephew as his nephew
with him. The boy made anew con
dition of affairs necessary. The mil
ler now thought the place too rough
and mean, and set out to finish off his
rooms with latlje and plaster and
paint. He put up -white curtainsfin
place of the green paper ones, and Act
ually bought a carpet for. the parlor
corner, which was now a real room,
partitioned .off from the main mill.
As his- house improved,che.began to
like the boy better, and to become
very indulgent toTiim
There, in this "elegant home," the
boy had his schaol-friends as often as
he chose to ask them.' Together they
popped corn and made molasses
candy, and whittled out boats in win-,
ter,- and they stuffed birds and pressed
wild flowers in summer.
So the years went. on, 'the miller
growing less odd in their flight. But
he still kept up.his old .Antipathy for
women—an antipathy that he could
not have cherished had he ever knowii
a mother and a mother's"
Ike.waS a happy-boy, and became a
"great favorite with his neighbors. At
eighteen years old h»xould do a man's
work.in tl^e mill,- beside going to
in winter. A shadow tell across the
miller's spirit Ucebeganto look at the
girls. He carried their skates and
their books, he risked' his life oil the
precipice. over 'the-stream to- gather
the "lad
"night el ..
ly's ear-drop" and"the purple
shade" for theitf.
He went on sleigh-rides and to par­
ties—and—and—well, Miller the miller
had heard of' his walking, home one
moonlight evening with little*? Buthie

mill a doneu tiniea in as many years
for looking down the' hopper, and for
gathering flour-dust to: play baking

beginning that now—they were so hap
1 py together!
Thfe trouble grew.
('Something's got to be done quick
about this," he said, "and it will be
done too!* And in his resolute zeal,
he boxed the side "of his own head
imagining it waff Ike's head.
But theJboy came home' so happy,
whistling'lb'cheerlly!" He
set down nis
coffee and molasses
and salt and sugar
with ouch an innocetjt air that bis
uncle could not speak harshly,

Miller the miller was greatlv .exer
cised after this, axid fancieu he saw
Ike's heart stolen from him,'-.and his
home made desolate by some flowex
of a girl who would turn into a scold
ing woman.
Alas, alas, for Miller the
miller! This
hour was coining on, and fate was
even at his very heels.
One night, thinking singing-school
must have been out a longtime,
concluded to drop in at Deacon
Bowne's to ask what made his horse's
crupper gall his neck.
The horse didn't know it did! Th«
miller thought by so doing he would
surprise Ike there and then he would
—he would— he didn't know what
would or wouldn't-do!
When he went in, there was.com-'
p&ny, and that was more than he had
The first one to jump ilp and offet
him a chair was Ike, who exclaimed,—
•'Well) this is a treat,- to see uncle
out visiting! ..Here's a welcome foi
ypu!"^' vv^,^
Tlie* bravery' of this took the spirit
all out of Miller the miller. He laugh
ed reluctantly, 'sat down after beint
introduced to'the deacon's cousins, a
stalwart manand a pretty
little wom
an by tho dame, of Craig, from Pine
Falls, some twenty miles away.
The miller actually stayed and at
apples and nuts, and talked and
laughed with the rest of the company.
He didn't go home till Ike said,—
."Come, uncle, this is pretty latefoi
you and me to be outf We must go
home now."
Miller had indeed bought "a lot 61
stuff," enough to-feast a dozen fatni
lies. He had bread and biscuit' and
rolls and crackers ofavery'shape and
name- He had fruit-cake" and frosted-:
cake, spongecake and brides-cake,
nut-cake, currant-cake, doughnuts,
sugar cookies,-molasses cookies, arid
hearts and rounds. All these were
piled up on as man^ large blue-edged
plates, looking like a. chain of tiny
Then there was canned salmon and
pressed beef and smoked beef, cheese
and three kinds of pies—such as they
were—and to crown them all,, there
\x'ere two peach-cans, with the
ated pictures still on them -filled with
long sticks of candy of every name and
hue, and there were nuts and raisins
and apples!
The miller looked very sad aa they
all rose from the table, saying, there
was as much "stuffs now as when
they Bat down, ".ThereLwas.now story
telling, guessing of conundrums and
singing.. The guests admired every
thing, frpm the corn-room And the
hopper, down, to the stuffed birds-and
pressed flpwers and on ^oing away,
Miss Craig'told the miller it had been
one of the pleasantest visits she had
ever made, and added, merrily,—

Miller the -^miller wanted to sav,"
"You needn't do that one mill would

Bi)t he was too cautious.
Before long the "Dusty Miller'' went
away on business..

days aloiie.
When the miller Came back he said,
"Ike, I am going to be marriea."
"Married? When? To whom?"

Bough Experiences at Colombia, S. O,
-. There were sixteen distinct shocks from
the recent earthquake. The first shock was
fearful and houses were shaken as though
made of pastoboard/ It seemed as if every
thing must topplo. The earth rose and fell
like the waves of the ocean. People rushed
madlyTrom their .houses into the street.
Some sprang from 'windows and wero in
jured. _The expeHonce of those in build
ings at the' time of the first shock was that
of being rocked as if in a Bhip at Bea.
Many of the^ most: substantial build
ings were shaken to tho foun
dations and the walls cracked and. sprung.
The rumblingin. the earth was loud and
horrifying in the extreme. Clocked topped,
bells wore rung and darpago'done to' some
buildings, principally by topplinjg chimneys.
There were numbers of cases of nervous
On fheir way home the miller re
"Very- nice folks those Craigs aoce."
"Yes, uncle, I agree with you."
So they were agreed.
.Next morning at breakfast the visit
was alluded to, and Miller the miller ac
tually said, "Th^t Craig'wasn't such a
fop! as most men are—he
didn't marry
until lie found a woman worth having
—did he? Where, do you suppose he
found this one Ikti?"
"Found her? Why, I suppose he
found her at home!"
A few days after this the miller ask
ed Ike how long "Mr. Craig and his
wife" were going to stay at the Bow
nes'.:'' :§:'v:V
"His wife's atr home. Miss Craig is
his sister," said Ikb:
"Oh, yes! Well, I was thinking, Ike,
that all the years I've lived in the
mill I've never had any one here to- a
meal, excepting beggars and tramps.
The Bownes are good neighbors, and
I've half a mind to ask them over to'
tea- while they're here."
"Wliewl" cried Ike, in jovial surprise.
'•But 'who would make tho cake and
the fotde-rols they always have for
company?" he added.
"I ride over to Seaver Pond, and
buy up a lot of stuff of the baker, and
some peaches,and pineapples and
such things in cans,'and other knick
knacks. It's only nine utiles, yotiknow.

September is with us now and the school
year of 1886-87 is about to begin. Parents
should lose no time therefore in placing
their children in establishments of well
known reputation where they may be
trained to become good and useful men
and women. Tor girls we can earnestly
recommend St. Joseph's academy, St. Paul,
as the model institution,
ot the kind in the
northwest, a fact clearly proven by -the
long list of applications the sisters
have already received from all parts
ot this section. Rarely Has a new
year held out brighter promises for the fu
ture. The many improvements of all kinds
that have beon introduced in the academy
during the pnst year, not .only adding to
the convenience and comfort pf the pupi'
but als6, aiding, them materially in tneir
studies, give promise of the most satisfac
