a BosAsrc or the ktrekt.
A croup of rairjred riils were play inpr on tbe side walk of Baxter street, half Hocking the wcy with tbeir dois I)r ilcnrv Colton, a BiJnrhed to 'cbar- iUble institution in the neighborhood found it almost impossible to push his wav through the crowd of hoy dens. " Uncouth faces and rough words Piwted him. es with no very ntl hands be made for himself a passafre through their midst. One of tho girls, holder even than her noifv companions, caught ot his coat and pulled liiui half round. He look ed at the girl, whose temerity excited his surprise, 81c was about twelve or thirteen vears fid, and was as ragged and dirlr as any in the lot; vet her Wautv phone through the dirt andrairs. Her checks were round and dimpled, her lips full and red, her vcs and hair black as nji Juijrht, and her form apparently wonderfully per fect. Pr. Colton passed on a Tew steps, but the girls great beauty ex cited his interest and he called. her. At first tibe m as disposed . to f run away, but finally jhe went up to Mm, taking care to keep just out of arm's reach. "What is your name, my girl??' ked the yonng man. "Kosa Garden," she replied. "Where do you live ?'' "With Mammy (linger, down here in the rag cellar she's my aunt, 1 be is." "Well, Mora," said he as be start ed to go, "you are too pretty and bright wilted to live in this place and with these people. Wouldn't yod like to go to school, and be a lady when you grow up ?" Kosa 's idea of the lady was asso ciated with fine clothes, and so sb replied affirmatively, without lightest hesitation. "Then I'll tell vou what to do the Ro face sa," added Henry ; "wash your comb ycur hair, and do you know where tho Girl's llofuge is?'' "Yes, I guess so." "You go up there, ring the bell, and ask for Mrs. 15rown. Tell her that you want to live there and learn to be a lady;" and he went on about bis business leaving tbe girl with her noisy companions. i)ut Ilosa bad no relish for romp ing. What the young man bad said to her kept running in ber head, and she coon wer.t to her sqnlid home tUnking it over and orer. I?osa received little but bad usnge end short rations from "Mammy (linger," who on'v kept the girl for lie work she could squeeze out or miser-! Ler. tier prncnt lite was so able that no cIiul Oo could well have baen iii-dc for tie worse, and so she was inclined to follow the stranger's advice. That nigLt she dreamed of being a fine lady, dressed in silk, and with plenty to eat : and upon waking ia the mcrring tbe ro loncer hesita ted. After exciting "Mammy Ginger's" wonder by washing her face and combing her hair as well as she could with her fingers, Kosa slipped out and went to the Girl's Refuge, on institution for the care and educa tion of orphan and pauper girls. Kinging the bell, she inquired for Mrs. Drown, as the stranger had told her to do, and at last reached the presence of the matron of the in stitution. "Well, little girl," said Mrs. Brown, "what do you want V "I want to learn to be a lady." The odd reply, covered with tha girl's striking beauty, won the at tention of tbe matron, and Kosa soon found herself a regular inmate of tbe institution. Eight years rolled bv. bringing Pr. Henry Colton to the age of thirty. Light eventful years to the country and to bini, for they comprised the bloody years of tbe rebellion. At the first breaking out of hostilities he en tered the army as an assistant sur geon, and served throughout the en tire struggle. At its close like thou sands upon thousands of others, be found himself completely unsettled in nabits ana disposition. H ltn a few hundred dollars saved from bis pay, be returned to New York, to find that bis friends had been scatter ed. Nobody knew bim, and be had not a relative in the world. "But I have a profession," he said to himself, "erfectcd by years of practical army experience ; I will es tablish myseit in practice, and pros perity will bring friends around me again. Naturally buoyant and hopeful he prepared to recommence life, with good spirits and bright anticipations for the future, nc hired a respecta ble but modest offiice on a semi-lash-ionable up-town street, furnished it plainly, and displayed a sign deno ting bis calling. Pays passed and no patronage came. He saw his dol lars going out, with none coming in. "I must economize," he concluded; I will give up my boarding place to begin with." After this the lounge in bis office was his bed, and the cheap restau rant get his patronage. Still these measures only cherked the drain up on bis Etore. Tbe few professional calls that he bad were mainly from those too poor or too dishonest to pay, and bis income did not one-half meet his closely curtailed expenses. He grew down-hearted and discour aged. Month after month passed, and at last Lis money was all gone. What Bhould be do?" the Idea of giv ing up bis profession was distasteful, and be clung to hope until actual want came in the shape of nnappeas cd hunger. Then one by one Le pawned Lis find snrgical instruments; getting but a small iraction oi ineir real value. Articles of clothing followed until he found himself utter ly unprovided to meet the cold weath er that was coming on. Finally, convinced that lie must abandon bis profession, he studied tbe "want" columns of the newspapers, and spent two entire daya , trying in vain 19 get mploymenL - The last of these two days he ate nothing, and previous short allowances bad enfee- bled bim. nen nigui came uv staggered wearily to his office to find that, after repeated warnings, tbe landlord had taken jwsscssion and locked the door. : .With til brain wotrllnjr lad his limbs tottering .with" weakness, Pr. Colton wandered he scarcely knew where Hanger and .fatigue were 4ong their work. lie had walked several blocki when bis eyes fcdl up on a carriage standing at the,', curb. A coachman in liyery eat upon the box, and the door stood open. Just then a lady came out of an adjacent bouse, and walked toward , the ve hicle. The famished nan caw that bhe carried a pocket-book in ber Land. Tbe demon of hunger suggested robbery as his eyes fastened upon the' well-filled treasure. He darted for-1 ward so quickly as to attract ber at tention and for an Instant she .looked ia his face. A t atraage - expression passed "over her 'beautiful', features, but it seemed scarcely that, of ear. She hesitated a moment, and then laid the tips of her fingers upon rni. "I've been waiting for you,' t-Uc said; "get into the carriage, please." . Wondering at the meaning of ber words, and scarcely knowing or car ing what be did, Pr. Colton did as she requested. "Irivc home," said the lady to the driver, and away they were borne up a fashionable avenue. "She has mistaken inc fore some body else," be thought, "and I must undeceive ber." Then he 6aid aloud: "You have doubtless made some mistake at least, 1 have torgottcnj .. ' you, if ever I have had the honor of an acquaintance." "No sir," was the reply, in a musi cal voice; "I have made no mistake, but the explanation is to long to be made here. Will you not wait until I reach my homo ?" j Pr. Coltoa assented, wondering if. the wholo adventure was not crea tion of bis fevered brain. They arrived, after a short drive, at a brown stono mansion of consid erable sise and beauty! The carriage stopped, and the lady led the way np the stairs and into the hall. Here the weakened strength of the doctor t! gave way, aad lie saiui into a cnair half fainting. "W hv, what is the matter : ' asked the ladv, in great coneerc. "Are yon ill?" "Only starving!" was the bitter confession. "I have eaten nothing for two days." Tbe lady hart'Iv summoned the servant and had biiu assisted to an easy chair. ; Then tempting riands and" generous wine were placed be fore him, of which he partook with good effect, feeling stronger and bet ter linnicd lately after the meal. The lady bad absented herself dur ing bis repast, but now the returned, divested of her street dress, and wear ing a rich robe. For the first time Pr. Colton studied her face a face, be thought, the most perfect in its loveliness that he had ever seen. She seated herself near him, and the look that her wondrous black eyes gave him was kindlv, almost loving. 'Are you prepared for an explana tion of mv rather strange conduct?" she said. Pr. Colton bowed. "Po you not remember asked. He looked at ber again me . she but could not recall it. "Po you remember,'' she continu- eu. "ii. waxier street, years ago, oi .talking with a dirtv, ragged little girl of ttiliui.' her that she was too nrcttv to liva there, and of sending iter iq me uti s ixeiuge i Yes, after thinking a moment, he remembered the circumstance. "I am the same girl," and she smiled merrily at Colton's look of amazement "I went to the refuge, as vou told me to do, and was kindly j received. I proved an apt scholar, at least they told me so, and at the (age of seventeen was able to get a situation as teacher in one c f the public schools. I bad been thus employed but a few months,- when a wealthy retired merchant, named Ar thur Kalston, formed my acquaint- a nee, and asked me to marry Lim. I had no friends, and bis honorable conduct won my esteem. I married him, only to become, within a year, a widow with a fortune. All this time I have never forgotten the author of my success, and, have al ways longed to reward him in some way for the advice which proved so valuable. I knew you at once to night, and adopted the first pretext that presented itself to get you into my carriage. And I fear," she ad- i t i ii . . uea, Kinaiv, mat my assistance was sadly needed." "Indeed, it was," and Colton nar rated his career. "And then I am to be made hap py by assisting you," she said, as be concluded. Pr. Colton slept soundly tbet night under the roof of Rosa Ralston, nee Garden. The next day he returned to bis office his protege, as bhe call ed herself, insisted upon furnishing him with money to pay Lis rent and redeem his pawned instruments and clothing, and started Lim again in the battle of sn;cess. And ber bounty was so skillfully bestowed that it uid not seem like charity, "only interest on an old debt," as she expressed it Was it a slight increase in bis prac tice that made the subsequent days seem brighter to Pr. Colton ? Scarce ly. A more probable explanation could be fonnd in the intimacy that grew so quickly between biro and the beautiful and wealthy young widow, an intimacy that deepened into love on both sides before many weeks passed. . They were married on Rosa's twen tieth birthday, and now Pr. Colton, happy in the possession of a lovely and loving wife, a fortune and a large practice, can complacently con template his darker days of starva tion and despair. i "And no professional advice that I ever gave," ne is wont to say, "ever proved more valuable than that I gave to Rose Cardcn, for it saved her from squalor and ignorance, me from starvation and robbery, and has made two lives happy."

There are various ways of doing this and of coarse, woman-like, we think cur way the best We: hare tried both ways ot cutting it from the ccb and drying it in the son with out scalding ; and of first scalding it a few minutes aritl then cutting it as closely as possible without shaving the cob and can safely assert that the latter method is far superior. So this season we shall put on .the big- ! pest kettle that will fit tho stove, and fill it up with ears of sweet corn in ino hour it. of tbeir sweetness and for five iiiii-f. xiiii h. ... ' - . 1hr fikim tnrm out m. to a pan, and with a corn-cutter; scrape off each ear. Thea spread the corn upon large plates, and set them tn the tin oven back of a Stewart stove, or not havingthat, they should be placed in the stove-oven when it is partly cooled down. When the c ru shrinks so that the plates can lie emptied into one, it may then be pla ced in the sun and covered with a piece of mosquito netting, which will keep on the flics, Ac, and when thor oughly dried, it can be kept in a pa per bag Bud bung up in the store room. Then next winter we snail havo succotash frequently, as we shall have plenty of dry Lima and butter beans. Soak the beans in the same manner and turn them together when they arc ready to be boiled, straining out all the water from the beans, but leaving it in the corn, as it will bo sweet and milky. Add enough water to boil both corn and beans. Then turn in a largo cup of rich milk or cream, and boil fifteen minutes. Season, with salt, pepper and butter. It stands to reason if the corn is first scalded it retains the sugar of milk, which produces its sweetness ; but if it is cut off in the green state, this dries away upon the plates. And again, it is needful to dry it rapidly at first to preserve the flavor in the corn, which would be more apt to evaporate if dried in the sun. But we must take care not to dry it so quickly as to scorch the kernals, for then they would be ruined. Sweet corn is sometimes put down in salt Cut off the corn after first scalding it a few minutes ; then place a layer of it in a stone jar, and scatter a thin layer of fine salt over it, and fill up the jar in this manner. Keep it in a cool place, lightly covered, and when desired for use, soak it over night, first washing it in clean water to take out the salt. Then boil it in milk or water, with or without adding the beans. A tablespoonful of sugnr will improve its flavor. Progrevn of American Agriculture. It is said that Europeans are com ing to admire American agriculture, and to believe that in many respect? it is far snperior to theirs. This is re markable in this that it is different from what our own people believe. We arc told that wc do things in a slovenly and slipshod manner, aud European models arc continnally held up to us. So far as mere neatness and finish are concerned, it is more than likely we should suffer in comparison with other countries, and notably England. With labor so cheap as it is, or rath er has been there, a little extra polish may well be afforded. It would be to'their disgrace, if with these advan-i tages they did not look more to ap pearances, especially in a part of the world where one of the most active principles is that "appearances make the man." But when it comes to actual returns for capital invested, we believe American agriculture will, as Europeans are comin; to think, yield more than in any country in the worldl The vast majority of our farmers who, in their old age become com fortable, started life "without a pen ny." We know hosts of farmers who make it their boast that they bad "nothing" when they begun. In no country certainly not ia England can a man rise like this on the lacd. Our elderly farmers may not be ex actly nVfi, as people understand rich es; and they may not be as well off as many merchants whom it has become fashionable for some people to envy; but these merchants are cither rich by a mere run of luck, or else they had a few thousand to le gin with, besides a first class com mercial education equal to and often costsing in cash a few thousand more, all of which the successful merchant is very apt to consider a3 a ''begin ing for nothing," while the well-to-do farmer generally can count capital eith er in cash or scholastic education as very little indeed. In England the "farmers" are an almost hereditary race. They have abundant capital, and raeely if ever think of going on the land without it The 6on takes tbe capital of the fath er, and continues " where the father left on, and witn his father s accumu lated means to make a good start. This is not how it always is; but often enough so to be the general ruie. Our farmers have many things to complain of, many wrongs to redress but they can cordially join with Eu ropeans in feeling that their chances arc much better thtm European than ccs, and that on the whole there is no class in 'American society which on so small an original capital can generally work out; such grand re sults. Swa.ll My ef aha frrloel. Where tbe road between Merced and Snelling crosses the Merced riv er that stream is about two hundred yards in width, and even at this sea son of tbe year, it looks like a dan gerous and deep stream to cross. Last Thursday a patent medicine agent.traveling on borscback through that section, came to the river and hesitated about attempting to ford it as he saw the wide expanse of rush ing waters. There is no bridge any- wnere along tnere, so alter some in decision be concluded to swim his horso across. Spying a boy fishing in a small boat tied to the 'bank, he said : "Hello, bub !" "Hello yourself." , "Can I get you to take my clothes across tbe rirer in your boat 17 "1 rekin you kin, if you're got any soap." "All right, lie give you a quarter to take over my clothes and this carpet-sack to the opposite shore." To this tbe boy nodded assent, the stranger disrobed, turned over the carpet-sack and habiliments to tbe juvenile, who paddled out into the stream, and mounted bis borso pre pared to swim the river and enjoy the luxury of a bath. With a splash at every moment, the horse stepped into the stream and walked across tue water was nowhero more than eighteen inches deep ! To say tbat the medicine man, percbod on tbe back of his horse, was a roan of in iquity for tbe space of half an hour would hardly do justice to the occa sion. There were enougn "dams" along the Merced that afternoon to supply a hundred mill aites. Sloe k fon (C'flf.) Gazette. ' . . ; New Adverliaemenls.
