I declare, new r'oak t" exclaimed Mrs. Waxwell, to her intimate friend, Miss Viney, as they came nut of church one Sunday. "1 see she has," replied Miss Viney, very quietly. ... "I know her husband can't afford it, abe will he the ruin of him vet." " luppose they know their own business best; at any rate it is a blessing that you or I re not accountable for ber misdeeds." said Mi Viney, who, though what is technically termed an -pld maid," was not of that class who have been slanderously styiea gossips onu busvbodies. And we have purposely iiitrodii ced bet to refute the calumny thut 'old maids' are meddlers and we are sure that all spin ten will be grateful to us for the service. "I don't know about that," returned Mrs Waxwell, with a dubious shake of the head; Mr. Burton owes my hosbnnd three hundred dollar, and 1 don't helieve he will ever get his nav. if thinsrs ko on in this way. That cloak couldn't have cost less than thirty dot larj.-,.-.. 'I nresume they could afford it, or they would not have bought it at any tale they ought to know best." -"Mrs. Burton is a Tain, conceited, proud woman, and her pride will have a fall one of these days." "I hone not." "1 hope she will have a fall; she would drnn some of those airs then." 'I never thought she was what wight be termed a viin woman." 'She is: she is an impudent minx. nd the aooner she is brought down to a level with her circumstances, the better for ber and the world." ' 6he has the reputation of being a very kind hearted person, and an excellent neighbor." I donlcare if she has, she likes to. 'lord' tl through the village, and for one I "won't be ruled by her." "Really, I do not understand you; she is a amtable and humble aa any one need ue." Amiable add humble, indeed? What did the buy that new cloak for, except to excite the envy of half the town, and make them think she is s'ombody ?" "I bone there is ho one to silly es to envy her," and Miss Viney cast a significant glance full into the face-of her companion. -"- ' " I don't for one; but 1 should like to teach herglhat she is no better than thereat of the world,"! ' " - - ' ' "She don't profess to be;' she 'visits-the neighborhood, and I'm sure there is no better person in sickness than aha is." "All that may be."

CHAPTER II. Mra. Waxwell loved fine cloths guile as much as any other woman of tht nineteenth century and this is saying a great deal. But then her husband was pamimonious, and she was parsimonious, and though she loved "nice things" icry miicn, s, e mvea money more we lake it, amounts to nothing more nor less than niennness. Mr. Wax we I was n farmer and uc'l olf ni the world. The advent of the railroad into his native town, had turned thincs tpsy-turvy in general, und put the dovil mtu the women in tmrticular to use Mr. Waxwell's classiol language, 'll'ine w.u when they were content; to wear slraw bLiinut and a cMUco gown to' meeting; but now Uicy l.ail to lit nut in silks and saliiiti, wiih fli.unces and lurlielow.s and all surif ul rii'ging hitched to 'em, for all the wurld just 1-ke a clown in the circus. Such were Mr. Wnxweli's view of the social influence of the railroad. jocie'y began to be a li 11 le "select;" folks put on airs, and were so "stuck up" 'hat you couldn't touch titern with a ten foot pole. i Farmer Wax we II did not much like, st'ite oi things-it cost money on tti one hftiul.and he did not like to he thrown I to the shade the other. He was annul the richest man itii the place; but ten dollar bonnets and thirty) dollar cloaks were abominations that he could not luicruie. jii.s. i.iiswni oiuii i oiv ij 0'.st done in the mutk-r of dress, and whermliaj botifht a new metinoe cloak the p evio'us sua- son, she had not u doubt but it would be uu- two seasons at least.

Ilii' CiiuP u. ..t. on.., -i. ...M.b..... .... demanded. Iu the riso and progress of the village since the advent of the railroad, two newstores had gone into operation, one of which was con- lucted by Mr. Hurton, an enteipnzuig young man from the metropolis, who had brought a city wife, nnd a great many city notions into the pine- with him. As with n great many whoeo from the city to the country, he was exceedingly nnnoytd by that diiiiterested, charitable attention to other people's business, which so extensively prevails in many rural diatiicU He kept his affairs to himself, and this bothered and per plexed the gossipsj His wife had a wayof at tending to her own concerns she had been brought up w elt! people do not even know their next door neighbors. If sho wanteds new dress or a new bonnet, she never deemed it ne'cessBry to consult tho neighbors in regard to het ability to ull'ord it, or about the' style and material. But in spite of these peculiarities', he was popular person in the village. She was amia ble and kind to all; a friend and comforter to (he sick, and quite a useful person in the so ciety of the place. She underslood matters and things, had a larger experience of the world than 1hr.se who had seen nothing or it; and the consequence was, that when a portv waslo be given, a pic nie projected, or a bll got up, she was I'.onsiil'ed and her advice fol lowed. She understcod all these things, nnd was happy to explain the "fashion" iu regard lo them, to ail who asked her counsel. Poor Mrs. Vtaxwell! her star began to de cline when Mrs. Burton came to the village. She was no longer the leader of the "Ion," slid her heart was bursting with envy. Though she often received the kind offices the storekeeper s wife both in sickness a n in heulili, she-would have willingly have crushed ber. That new clonk was the cap- sheaf of the indiinuties which she fancied had beeu henned upon her, and sho determined that her iineon.-eious rival should suffer the consequences of her temerity. Her first demonstration was npon her hus band, whom she found no di.T.cultylin convin cing that Sir. Burton must be ruined by the ex'ravagance jjf his wife, nnd tnat, unless he immediately collected his debt, he would cer tainly lose it. "As soon as ulie had done her washing on Monday, she made some calls, nnd embraced the opportunity of commenting freely upon thai new cloak. The woman 'old their hus bands Mr. Burton would certiinly fail, and be fore three days had elapsed, '.here was quite ferment in the place. Nobody knew 'anything about Mr. Burton's affairs; he seemed to be doing a good business, though no one knew of his having any money. He did not even own the house in whi'-h he lived, he had no property, apparently, but his stock. The careful old farmers, to whom in the course of trade he had become indebted for produce which he sent to Iloston, began lo be a'amied by these rumors. It was in the Sta'e of New Hampshire; and the lime of which I write, the "grab law was in force, rnd is still for ought 1 know. One morning, ns Mr. Burioti returned frema journey to a neighbor iK' town, he loun l stock attached on the ciaun of Farmer Wax well and nil on account of that laWCioak which his wife ha i wcini to meeting on the, preceaiTine Sunday. ii t . ., - ,1... .i .cUu uo, t... means... pay . , , " IIIU.

"I presume if tha people here knew that I was not a bankrupt, thr y would not have mo lested me.

Farmer Waxwell was at dinner, when the lawyer, who was a personal friend, culled upon him. "Sorry to trouble you, but I am instructed to collect this note,"said he. "The devil !' exclaimed Farmer Waxwell. "The ugly buzz !' added Mrs. Waxwell, as she perceived that Miss Viney's prophetic words had been burdened with a meaning. "1 beg vour pardon, madam." said the law yer, "but if 1 understand it rightly, you have publicly boasted thut you brought about ull this difficulty.' "11' "Yes, madam; that new cloak did the bu- siness; you set your husband on, und nil the rest billowed him, so -Miss Vmey tells me. "My gracious!' "And r.ow she wants the money to assist Mr. Burton out of the duficuliy into which you have plunged him." "That's plain speech, Squire." "But true." "1 can't raise the money." "Then I must sue." "Can't we compromise?" "Burton is .worth at least five thousand dollars, and when he gets a remittance from BoPton, will repay oil." "I will dissolve my attachment, and Le bound for the pauient of this others. Will that do it?" "Yes, if Miss Vinev will consent." Miss Viney did consent she was a kind hearted lady and the mailer was compro mised. 'Now, wife,' said Farmer Waxwell, as le put the three hundred dollnrs iu his pocket which Burton had paid, minus thirty which be held in his hand, 'here's thirty dollars and 1 think you'd better go and buy one of them 'ere cloaks.
