"Aunt Kezzy's coming! Aunt TTczzy's
coming!" shouted a score of girls and
bovs just emerging from the door of the
little brown school house on "Pleasant
Hill." They all ran to meet the queer lit
tle old ladv, and the boys shook hands
with her, while the girls hugged and
kissed her as if she was the dearest friend
they had in the world.
"Well, I declare! I do believe you've
kissed all my breath away!" she exclaim
ed, seating herself on a mossy log under
the old pines that shaded the .school
house. "And how are you getting along
in school, dears
"Oh, finely, auntie. Do come in some
time and hear us spell and parse, and see
how well we behave."
"Ah, you rogues, you behaved badly
enousrh when visited you la*''
"Well, you know, we had such a horrid
teacher then, we couldn't lielp being
"I'm glad'lndcecl if you're doing better
now. What do you suppose I climbed
this steep hill for this sultry afternoon, in
stead of sitting quietly in mv cool porch,
as a woman of my age ought to?"
"For something good, I'll warrant,"
said Joe Allen.
"Well, I'll tell you, dears. I went in
to sit awhile with Grandpa and Grandma
Brown this afternoon, and, oh, it was
just dreadful there! We have all got our
spring cleaning out of the way long ago,
and our homes, inside and. out, all sweet
and clean. But you know Grandma
"J Brown has the rheumatism in her hands
and arms, so she can hardly use them.
They are too poor to hire any help, and
haven't a child or chick in the world to
look after their comfort. You cannot
imagine how uncomfortably dirty that
house is and as I sat there an idea came
into my mind, and I've come up here on
purpose to tell you about it. Suppose
next Saturday morning early some cood
friend should carry the old folks otf for
a good long visit., and you girls and boys
just take that poor old house in hand and
give it such a cleaning as it never had
before* What do vou think of the idea?"
"It's capital!"
"Will vttu
boss the job?" "Oh, you dear, blessed
old auntie, you are always thinking up
something nice!" The girls fell upon
her afresh, with various hugs and kisses,
while the boys, big as they were, turned
somersaults, and stood on their heads until
their faces were as red as a beet.
"Oh, you crazy children! do be quiet!"
said Aunt Kezzy, with a ripple of musical
laughter that set the robins overhead wild
with envy.
"Of course I'll help. What would such
a'parcel of madcaps do without somebody
to keep you straight? Iiut now listen.
It'll be anything but fun cleaning up that
filthy old house, only as you do it for
Clinst's sake and to make the poor old
souls happy and comfortable for the sum
mer. If you agree to try it, I want to teli
you now what must be done."
"Go on go on, auntie!"
"Well, who will agree to bring a pail of
nice whitewash and a brush, and be re
sponsible for that part of the work!"
"I will," said Joe Allen. "I can do it
first rate."
"All right, sir."
"Now if we could manage to raise about
a dollar and a half, we could re-paper that
dingy little sitting-room."
"We can! we can! I'll give a quarter!"
"and 1," "and I."
"Well, that's settled. I'll find out on
sly just how much it will take, and have
it all ready to whip on in no time. There
will be a large washing to do, for we shall
find plenty of soiled bed-clothes and gar
ments about the house. I think we had
better hire the Widow Mahone to do that,
if we can manage to raise six shillings
"Mother'U give me six shillings if I ask
her for it," said Mamie St. Clair.
But then it won't be all ottr work.
Couldn't you each contrive to earn a little
money doing some extra jobs between now
and Saturday?"
I can," Yes," Of course," was the
general reply.
"Then we can manage the washing
I say, auntie, couldn't we boys paint
the old black shell of a house on the out
side? We've got a lot of it left that fath
er would give me, I am sure."
And we've got some, too," said anoth
er of (ourse we can paint theiiouse. I
know how, for I tried it on the barn this
Aunt Kezzy got up and shook hands
•with both the boys, her wrinkled old face
lairly shining with delight
Now that will be grand! The dear
souls won't know the old place when they
get back to it. I didn't dare think of
that but do try it by all means. Now,
girls, you must be on hand bright and
early, with a pail, soap, scrubbing-brush
es and clean cloths. If any of you have
a pretty tidy, or any little ornament that
jou can spare, bring it along to brighten
op the house a bit."
I know what I'll bring, auntie: some
•white curtains for the sitting-room win
dows. to put in place of those torn paper
shades that have hung there ever since I
,can remember."
"That will be very nice. I'm going to
stuff and cover the two old rocking
chairs, so they will be more comfortable,
with a hassock for each to rest their tired
oh, auntie! jroa always think of
Well, dear, by the time you are as old
as I, you'll have a pretty good thinking
cap of your own to wear. Don't forget to
bring a lunch, for you won't find much
in grandma's cupboard to eat, I assure
Then Aunt Kezzy started homeward, ac
companied by the children, who talked
and laughed over their own nonsense, un
til they left the dear old lady at the door
of her cottage, each promising to be on
hand the next Saturday morning as soon
as the old folks were gone.
Keziah Thompson was an old maid—
One of those dear, blessed old maids that
make sunshine and joy for every living
creature they meet. She was the one to
whom tiretl mothers went for help and
comfort in time of need who was an
angel of mercy by the bedside of the sick
and dying who hushed the wailing cry
of the new Ixtrn babes, and closed their
eyes in the hour of death. There was not
a man, woman, or child in the village
but loved and respected her next to the
minister. No sooner was one little kind
ness planned and carried out, before the
busy woman was on the alert for some
thing else to do. And the best part of it
was, she managed to interest others so
much in these thincrs that they always had
the comfort of thinking they had done it
all. which suited her exactly.
Friday afternoon Farmer Jones called
on Grandpa and Grandma Brown and told
them he was coming for them bright and
early the next morning to take them out
to his house for a good long visit. It
pleased them greatly. They assured him
they would be ready in good time.
Never was there a brighter morn
ing than dawned on that cventftol day.
The youncr people were up betimes, with
everything ready, so they could start as
soon as Fanner Jones drove away from
the door of the little old house. At last
the moment came, and they soon gathered
there with their pails of paste, paint,
whitewash, soap and sand. Farmer
Jones, who was in the secret, harried the
old people off, so they forgot to lock the
doors (but it is very doubtful whether they
ever did such a thinsr), so there was noth
ing to hinder them from taking posses
sion, and they commenced work at once.
A huge fire was built in the rusty stove,
the boiler :tnd kettles of water put over to
heat, while two or three other boys pro
ceeded to take up the rag carpet and clear
the sitting-room of what few articles of
furniture it contained. After a thorough
sweeping and dusting. Joe Allen white
wasli^d the black, smoky ceiling over and
over again, until at last it was pronounced
really irjiitf. Then the girls stripped off
the remains of soiled, torn hangings from
the walls, while auntie measured,cut, and
fitted the pretty new paper she had
brought. The room was wainscoted, so it
was not a hard task, and before tioon it
was finished, and the woodwork, windows,
and floor nicely cleaned. Auntie's eyes
were everywhere, even while she was
about this* work, guiding, directing and
controlling the score of busy boys and
girls. With the help of a good washing
machine and a stout boy to run it, the
Widow Mahone had made good progress
with the washing. There was scarcely a
tiling in the house, from the best blue and
white bed-spread down to the dish-cloth,
but was put through that, washing-ma
chine and tub, and speedily transferred to
the lines to dry. Two of the oldest boys
were at work upon the outside of the
house, nailing on the loose clapboards and
shingles, and transforming its weather
beaten sides by a coat of light brown
paint, with a darker shade of color upon
the cornice and casings, which improved
its appearance wonderfully. By noon they
were all very willing to rest awhile, and
refresh themselves with the contents of
their lunch-baskets and a generous supply
of lemonade which the boys had provi
ded for the occasion.
Then, giving orders to remember ex
actly where everything in the bed-room
and piintrv was kept, so that each article
might be left as they had found it, they
proceeded with the work. It wasn't a
pleasant task. I doubt whether they could
have persevered to the end without Aunt
Ke/.zy's encouraging words and smiles.
But she kept them all so happy with her
funny little stories and droll remarks, and
pictured so vividly the surprise and de
light of the old couple when they return
ed from their visit, they took heart and
%vent into the thickest of the fight bravely.
The old rag carpet was thoroughly whip-
mended, and nailed down again in
ts place. Then followed the pleasantest
part of the work. Aunt Kezzy stuffed the
old wooden rocking chairs, and covered
them with a crimson merino dress-skirt,
while the girls put up the fresh white
muslin curtains, and tied them back with
bright ribbons, and arranged the scanty
furniture to the best possible advantage.
Each one had brought something—a little
home-made bracket, or a picture framed
with moss or cones—and it was delightful
to see how pretty the room was when at
last everything was done—the crimson
Chairs, with their white tidies in their ac
customed places, pictures and brackets
upon the neat wall, and a vase of fresh
flowers upon the little oldfashioned stand.
Tliev called all the others in to enjoy it
with them, then proceeded with fresh
courage to the unpleasant things which
still remained to be done. The widow
her washing, and was ironing
and sunning the clothes as fast as they
dried. The dishes were all washed, and
put back on the clean shelves covered
with neatly-bordered papers. The poor old
feather-bed received a terrible shaking,and
sunned itself for hours on a pile of brush
in the back yard. The straw was emptied
out, the tick washed and dried and filled
with fresh, clean straw again. Aunt
Kezzy took the bedstead in charge, peer
ing carefully at every crack and crevice,
scalding and scouring and salting it, until
she was satisfied that'from henceforth the
poor old souls would be able to sl'*ep in
peace. At last the bed room and kitchen
were as pure and sweet as whitewash,
soap ana water could make them, and the
tired »mt happy boys and girls prepared
to return to their homes. Auntie praised
them all, and said a few words about the
blessedness of ministering to the poorest,
lowliest ones of earth, as our Saviour
did, which sank deep into their young
"Grandpa and Grandma Brown will not
be here until after dinner Monday, so I
will come over and pat the finishing
touch to the work, and be here to receive
them. I think the dear old folks will
want to see you and suppose you all
come here after school for a sort of pic
nic in the grove back of the house?"
Bring your provisions, a plate, knife, cup
and spoon with vou. and we will have a
fine time of it. What do you sav?"
"We say it'll be real fun! and you are
the dearest, best auntie in the world!"
With pleasant "good-nights," the party
separated and went their several ways.
Aunt Kezir was in the bright little
kitchen when Farmer Jones drove up to
the door with Grandpa and Grandma
Brown. They looked at the newly paint
ed house with a bewildered air, and never
stirred from their seats. a
"Well," said the farmer, "here^we are
shall I help you out?"
*'But this can't be our old house—some
thing's wrong about it someway, but I
can't just think what it is," said the old
"Well, I guess it'll be all right inside
you'd better go in and sec."
Trembling with surprise and wonder,
the old couple went slowly up the clean
swept path, and were met at the door by
Aunt Kezzy's sunny face.
"Oh! I Know now! It's some of your
"No, indeed, grandpa! Do you siippose
an old woman like me could paint up
your house like this? But come in, come
in and sit down."
Aunt Kezzy led them to the cozy sit
ting-room and seated them in their cush
ioned chairs.
"Now, Keziah Thompson, who's done
all this?" said grandma, pointing her
trembling finger to the newly-papered
walls, the muslin curtains, and the trifles
that adorned the room, then feeling care
fully the cushioned arm of the chair in
which she was sitting.
"A whole parcel of fairies, grandma,
real fairies! They are all coming to see
you this afternoon."
Tears slowly gathered in her faded eyes
and rolled down the farrows in her
"Well, I'm all beat out! I can't think
what it means," said grandpa. "I don't be
lieve it is our house, after all it's some
"No, indeed! it's all right, I assure you,
said auntie. "Just rest a bit, then look
about you and see."
They couldn't wait to rest. Excited and
curious as children, they got up and went
out into the kitchen, looked at the sliiuing
stove, the old clock in the corner, the
neatly-scoured table and floor, the pure
white walls, and the blue and white
dishes in their accustomed place.
It was a treat to Aunt Kezzy and Farmer
Jones, who stood in the doorway, blowing
his nose vigorously, and furtively wiping
his eyes upon an enormous red handker
chief, to hear their exclamations of aston
ishment as, hand in hand, they peered
cautiously into the little bedroom. The
same blue and white spread was on the
bed, the same little elawfooted stand by
iU head, with the "camphire" bottle, box
grandpa's spectacle-case, and
grandma's knitting-work and old cap on
on it, just as they had left them. They
went back to the sitting-room, took one
long look at the pretty chairs, and then
sat down.
"Well, wife, it's nice, ain't it, whoever'*
done it?'' And the old man's face
ed strangely, while his wife looked be
seechingly at Aunt Kezzy. and said:
"Do tell us what it means."
"I will tell you, drur old souls. You
see we all know grandma has the rheuma
tism so badly she cannot do much, and
we know you have no children to look
after your comfort, so some dear fairies,
with stout hearts and willing hands, came
here while you were gone and fixed up
the old house as nice as they could. They
are-coming soon to see how you like it."
"Bless 'em! I hope they will," said
grandpa "but I guess Aunt Kesiah had n
hand in it."
Of course did! always manage to
have a hand in anything like this if I
can, but I did very little of the work, I
assure you. Now, just lie down and have
a good rest before the fairies come." She
coaxed the old folks into their little bed
room, turned down the blue and white
spread, pulled oflT grandpa's boots, and
tucked them in like the two dear old
children they were, ('losing the door,
she slipped down to the grove where Si
mon Martin had put up a longtablennder
the trees. She spread them neatly with
table cloths, then hurried back to the gate
just in time to send the young folks softly
around the house. Very soon the con
tents of their baskets were transferred to
the table, and then auntie set them to
work making wreaths and mats of oak
leavtis and bouquets of wild flowers with
which to adorn it, while she made the
tea In the house. They placed two chairs
at the head of the table for grandpa and
grandma, and another at the foot for Aunt
Kezzy. When all was ready aunty woke
up the old couple, who were having a fine
nap, helped grandpa on with his boots,
wrapped a light shawl around grandma,
and invited them to walk out to the grove
Mow their dim old eyes brightened up
when they saw the pretty girls in their
white dresses and wreaths, and the fine
looking, sturdy boys, with flowers in their
button-holes! They shook hands with
every one. then gathered about the
table. Every fair young bead was bowed
while grandpa, with his trembling voice,
called down a blessing upon the dear
hearts who had remembered the old folks
so kindly. What a delightful time they
did have, to be sure! Grandma made
them tell her all about the work, how they
had contrived to brighten up the old
place so. Grandpa praised them, and
finally got up and made a speech, wherein
he expressed their united thanks to each
and every one, and wound up by saving,
"And now, three cheers for Aunt Kezzv
and her fairies!" The boys made the old
woods ring with their loud hurrahs, and
the girls screamed with laughter to see
the old man swing his hat and hurrah as
loud as he could with his weak, trembling
Why grandpa! you're making an old
fool of yourself," Bald grandma, wiping
her eyes, and laughing as she hadn't be
fore for years.
"So I be, wife, so I be but nevermind
It makes me feel like a boy again to get
with such a parcel of young folks."
Such a jolly time as they had! Finally,
the falling dew warned them it was quite
time for the old folks to be in the house-,
so. after gathering up the fragments of
the feast, they escorted them to the d'*r
of the house, wWre they all shook hands
once more and received a parting bless
ing, after which they returned to their
homes, well satisfied with the result of
their Saturday's work.—Chrittian Union.
—Carbolic Acid.—That great disinfect
ant, carbolic acid, should be on hand in
every household, and if bought by the
gallon or quart it is cheap if bought in
vials it isdear. An objection hitherto has
ijeen it« unpleasant odor, but this was on
account of its strength. Solutions will
kill the eggs of all kinds of vermin, will
destroy ants in the hill, and annihilate the
germs of disease and plagues in stables
and outhouses, but a general cleaning out
is required in connection. All drains,
sinks, and pipes conveying water should
hrre a sprinkling.
—Life is like a roll of costly material
passing swiftly through our hands, and
we must embroider our pattern on as it

—Rye Drop Cakes.—One cup of sour
cream, three cups of sour milk or butter
milk, one-half cup of sugar or molasses,
two teaspoonfuls of saleratus. Mix stiff
enough for the spoon to 9tand erect. A
little salt helps it.
—Plum Preserves.—Plums are equally
good done in molasses as sugar. If sugar
is used, take an equal quantity of fruit
and sugar. Make a clear syrup and boil
the plums gently forty minutes. They
will require heating over once if to be kept.
Beech plums are very excellent prepared
in this way, as well as for pies.
—Iced Apples.—Pare, core and slice ten
apples of a large, tart kind. Bake them
till nearly done. Put them away to get
entirely cold then prepare some icing as
for apple meringue, and first pouring off
all the juice, lay the icing thickly on the
tops and sides as much as you can. lie
turn them to the oven to just harden and
be set. Serve with cream. This is very
beautiful either for dessert or an evening.
—Imitation Coral Baskets.—Bend bon
net wire into the shape of a scolloped
basket and two wires, crossed at equal
distances, for the handle and then sew on
a few raisin stems, short and long ones.
Melt some beeswax, coloring it with
Chinese vermilion or red aniline if the
aniline is used, it must be dissolved in a
little warm water and poured into the
beeswax. Apply this while hot, puurintr
it on with a teaspoon, being careful to
just cover the frame.

one quart spirits turpentine two fluid
ounces sulphuric acid. Put oil and tur

add the acid slowly, (keeping it. uncorked'
and keep it in motion until cool. To curt

American says: Take a polish kettle or
large tub, and put into it one barrel ol
wood ashes lye, five pounds of white
vitriol, five pounds of altuu, and as mud

Make the liquor quite warm, and put as
many shingles in it as can be conveniently
wetted at once. Stir tlieiu up with a fork,
and when well soaked take them out and
put in more, renewing the liquoras neces
sary. Then lay the shingles in the usual
manner. After they are laid take the
liquor that is left, put enough lime into it
to make whitewash, and if any coloring is
desirable, add ocher, Spanish brown
lampblack, etc., and apply to the roo
with a brush or an old broom. This wash
may be renewed from time to time. Salt
and lye are excellent preservatives ol
wood. It is well known that leach tubs,
troughs, and other articles used in the
manufacture of potash, never rot. They
become saturated with the alkali, turn
vellowi inside, and remain impervious
io weather.
