How dare you J" r anny laid the pink bundle ir down in a rocking chair full of pillows The bundle protested with a vigorous movement, and in another moment the rocking-chair and the baby come down together. "Xow, yon awful man the child, is killed r cried Fanny, with a scared face, as she lifted the tiny mor sel from the floor; but the pillows had protected it, and the startled baby, af ter one effort at curling her lips, broke into a charming smile. "No harm done; and I trust I'm for given," said Mathew Doun. "So, you are not forgiven. I shall aerer forgive you Mr. Mathew Donn ; so please leave baby and me. I have nothing more to say." -Well, I I'm going." " Tou can go, sir." The young man went softly, slowly out ; but he looked neither grieved nor angry on the other side of the door; be smiled. The circumstances were these: Fanny had been amusing her sister's child, and the little cherub seemed nev er to tire of musical sounds; so Fanny, who had "Mother Goose" by heart, liked nothing better than to sit in the cozy sitting-room, which was really the nursery, and sing those old melodies. Mathew Donn was the hired man, and on this particular morning had stolen in quietly behind Miss Fanny, and tempted of what? surely not the Evil One had bent over and kissed her on the forehead. ' ' And this he had dared to do, know ing that Fanny was a city young lady, living in a fashionable quarter, and used to the best society. Fanny's sister had married a rich farmer ' not quite two years before. People talked about those Brysous bury ing themselves alive ; but both Fanny and Olive loved the country better than the town. Every summer Fanny was glad to leave the "stuffy old house," as she called it, and almost by one leap on the express train find herself in paradise, breathing air redolent of white clover and sweet brier. During the winter the sisters corresponded reg ularly; aud Olive had sung the praises of Mathew Donn, tiieir hired man, so often that Fanny found herself think ing of his acquaintance as one of the pleasant probabilities of her next visit. " We dou't pretend to treat him as help," wrote Olive her baby on one knee and steadying' the paper with a bronze weight; "for he is not in the least like the men who hire out in these parts. I should be ashamed not to ask bim to come to the table; aud just for the novelty of it, I want you to take a peep into his room. Harry calls him his ram evis; and the two really enjoy themselves together almost like broth ers. Besides, he's nearly as handsome as my Harry. He, you know, is the handsomest man iu the world !" And the pleasant pen ran on aud told about planting, the prospective sweet corn, and pea blossoms, and how the grape vines were lull of the tiniest branches, and the young peach trees were going to do splendidly ; and Adela had two of the cunningest, milk-white teeth, and loving nonsense. Xow, Fanny hail s rich lover, and, like most rich lovers, he was not pre pogessing in his personal appearance. In her own written language to Olive, "he pestered her to death." To be sure it was pleasant to see his splendid equi page in front of their door, with the two superb grays, for on rare occasions Fanny yielded to his solicitations to take a ride; and he always contrived to drive her by his castle of a brown stone front, perhaps to tempt her; for Fanny was as fond of beautiful things as wo- meu ought to be, and was well aware of the advantages which money can give. Both her Cither and mother were anx ious that she should marry the Hou. Ebenezer Wolcott, but Fanny was high spirited, and they seldom advised her. The girl knew that they were living beyond their means for her sake, and this knowledge had been bitterly earned She and Olive had many conferences over it. " I think if you were married," said Olive, "papa would come here and take a small house, then business need not press him so in his old age." Ebeuezer had done the proper thing had offered Fanny his heart, his house, his carriage, and his horses; and al though he was known as a pugnacious old gentleman, terribly set in his way, he was honorable, and he loved beauti ful Fanny Bryson with all his heart. And Fanny had told him that she conld not then decide that she was going for the summer mouths to sister Olive's, and at the-close of ber visit she would give him his answer. "And may I come out there gome, times?" asked Eben. Fanny gave a reluctant consent, and wished with all her heart that she had refused bim, so, with the understand ing that lie was to call as a friend, the two parted. At the depot Fanny found ber sister's carriage in waiting, aud was accosted by the handsomest as well as the tallest man she had ever seen. Six feet four and proportionately majestic, he seemed like Apollo and Hercules in one. " Can this be the hired man ?" thought a Fanny; and then she looked at his dreas. Xot a trace of servitude about him but he treated her with extreme defer ence, said but little, drove with the pre cision of a man accustomed to horses, and drew np in front of the cottage in grand style. Fanny was in her sister's arms, and after her, the baby cause in for a fair share of kisses. "Well, Is that your hired man?" Queried Fannr. after ,her comfort able instalment In one of the luxurious easy chairs. ' "Yes, dear; that is Mathew Donn How do you like him ?". "He looks like a gentleman," said Fanny, after a little pause. " He is a gentleman, dear, in the best sense of the word ; I told you that." " And does he speak English well ?" ' Why, child, he is Unt a foreigner," laughed Olive. ' ' I mean grammatically, said Fanny. Oh, yes ; I presume he has had a good common-school education," re plied Olive, "and something better. I know there are certain crjssical books in his room; whether he ever reads thefootetcan'tsay. ---"r "Why in the world does he hire out?" cried Fanny, dismayed in her voice. "Why shouldn't he?" asked Olive, laughing heartily again. "He likes the country, is nsed to horses, and and I suppose he cannot get any thing better to do." " But a man like him might be some- bod v!" ejaculated Fanny, with vehe mence. "My patience! has he no am bition? I am afraid I shall despise him." ," Perhaps, dear, he would not mind if you did," said Olive, biding ber face in the white neck of her baby. He is so very independent." Surely, why should he care what she thought of him t soliloquized Fanny, her cheeks flushing. The next day she met him at the ta ble. It seemed strange enough to sit down with hired help, but she was forced to confess that in nothing did he ?ive the impression that ot being a menial. " Shall we take hold of that live-acre lot this morning?" be asked, respect fully, of Mr. Maynard, Olive'i hus band. fXo; I prefer that you should look to the drainage of that strip east of the hill," was the answer. "There'll be no rain yet a while, and I want to prepare that laud for potatoes." Fanny watched Mathew Donn out on the sly, and Olive caught her at it. I wanted to see what kind of a dress be works in," said Fanny, with tell-tale cheeks. " Dou't yon think him a little hand somer in his blouse and heavy field boots?" asked Olive. "He certainly is very handsome," said Fanny, frankly; "but why In the world however," she added, stopping short, "it is none of my business; but such a man as that should surely work his own land." "That's true," said Olive quietly. Time passed on. Fanny became ac customed to eat, sit, and even talk witli the hired man. One day Olive took her up into his room. Fanny stood aghast. It was as exquisite iu its way as a lady's boudoir. " He furnished it himself," said 01 e, in reply to Fanny's look of sur prise. "A Wilton carpet," murmured an- ny; "marble-top set; tnai x-sycue: those flowers! and what is this?" She lifted a lovely little miniature from the table, one of the most beautiful and re fined faces she had ever seen . " Oh, one of his friends, I suppose," said Olive, in her undemonstrative way. "And see how perfectly neat every thing is kept, always in this beautiful order. Do you wonder Harry calls him rora avis?" Vs Indeed, I cannot," said Fauny slow ly ; "but be must speud every cent he earns to furnish himself in this extra ordinary ma nner." " He h as nothing else to do with his money, dear," said Olive; "he dont even buy cigars. For my part, I think he is perfectly elegant." Fanny said nothing, but she found herself wishing that she knew who was the original of that lovely miniature, and trying to recoucile the tastes and surroundings of the man himself with bis servile occupation. Xot but what the work was good enough, and honor able for any man, but why was he not laboring for himself instead of an other?" For days she thought of the minia ture. Every time she met him, heard him talk or sing he had a fine voice, and was not averse to using it up pop ped that nfysterious face with the Span ish eyes and the clustering curls. Mr. Eben Wolcott, meantime, had ta ken advantage of ber reluctant permis sion, aud brought his dashing team to Wiunicut. Poor Fanny, at sight of his respectable aldermanic person, his gold- bowed spectacles, and thick gray whisk ers, felt a strange sinking at the heart. Why, should that six-footer rise up in her- imagination and cause by mere force of contrast a repulsion so terri ble? " It's positively wicked for me to seem to encourage that man," she said al most passionately, one morning, the day after a drive. "Which man?" asked Olive, inno cently, and their eyes met. The red blood flew all over poor Fan ny's face, she felt hot to the crown of her head and yet why should she? "That's a pretty question to ask!" she exclaimed, nearly angry. Well, dear, hut how am I to know who 'that man' Is?" queried Olive with a conscious look. "You know it is Mr. Wolcott," said Fanny, nearly crying. Well, lie is a good man, and a rich one," was the answer. "I know girls who would jump at the chance, as the sayiug is. I would either marry him or send him oft." " Pshaw !" said Fanny, biting her red lips and a few momenta after she left the room, conscious of a new, a painful, and at the same time strangely delight ful experience. No use to try to con ceal it or cloak it to herself not the slightest; she loved Mathew Donn, her sister's hired man. How she paced her room, half dis tracted, sobbing without tears, forming wild resolves, and then throwing her self down with a sense of her utter helplessness, I shall not descr lbe. How could she ever meet him again ? Could she keep her almost painful secret, and did Olive guess at it? What would Ol ive think what counsel her if she knew?. . Only the next time that Mr. Eben Wolcott came out she quietly dismissed him, and then made np ber mind that she must go home. If she could only fly to the ends of the earth ! But Fanny did not go, for Olive would not hear of It. A slight cold confined Olive to her room, but one evening she sent Fanny out and bade her peremp torily to take Harry and go for a walk. Then she summoned her husband to give him his orders, but when he came down stairs Fanny was gone, and Mathew, with a wicked little smile was taking down his hat. That's right Donn," said Harry, breaking into a laugh ; "she ought to know better than to go alone. By the way, I happen to know that she has dis missed old alderman." Donn smiled again and went ont, closing the door behind him. There was a bright moon, displaying flower, leaf and bud.' Supposing that Fanny would only make the ronnd of the place. he ran swiftly down to the back gate, and met her just as she had reaebed the great elm that stood guarding the line. She started at sight of him. "Tou will allow me to walk with you ?" he said. "There is a squad of gypsies in the neighborhood, aud some one might molest you." Fanny could not say no ; could not talk , even, for with ready tact he took all the conversation upon himself. What did he not touch upon? Opera, arts, nature, city, country all derived new beauty from the glamour of his tongue, was it strange that Fanny and found herself leaning on his arm and listen ing with rapt attention to the eloquence of his speech? From .that time there a certain tacit understanding between them, and all went smoothly till the morning he kissed her. For that Fanny was angry at herself that she was not angrier with him. All day long she was full of moods, changing from grave to gar, from fits of reflection to the wildest merriment. Fanny," said Harry,' coming np to his wife's room after tea, "Mr. Donn wishes to speak with you down stairs." All the lovely color faded out of her face at this announcement. She longed to assert herself; but might they not read the truth in her eyes if she re fused? Slowly she went down stairs. Donu was in the parlor walking back and forth. He came to meet her with outstretched hand. " I want you to forgive my rudeness of this morning," he said. "In my assumed character I had no right to take such liberty, or, indeed, in my own." "Your assumed character!" she ex claimed trembling, as she seated her self. "Tes. My friend Harry met me a year ago, when we were ootn travel ing. I was a good deal run down in health, and the doctor said that were a laboring man I might covercome the disease that was wasting me. So I conti acted with Harry to work for him, like any common fanner and he was to keep my real name and position a se cret," He saw the change in ber beautiful eyes. "My real name is Donn Mathews," he added, smiling, "and there is no need of my working for a living ; but I real ly think I shall go in partnership with my friend Harry, and turn farmer. But you have not told nie whether yon for give me." " I I don't know," retorted Fanny, half laughing, half crying. Fanny, Fanny! if yon knew bowl love you," he cried, suddenly stopping hi front of her, 'I do think you would.' " I I am so, so glad !" It was not politic, perhaps, this con fession, but it was very natural. " And I think I can match your al derman's house," he added, taking ber hands in his, "dear, dear Fanny!"

Old Judge W.,of in the Old Do minion, is a character. He was a law yer, legislator, judge, and a leading pol itician among the old time Whigs of blessed memory; but, alas! like them, his glory has departed, and like a good many others of bis confreres, has now gone "where the woodbine twineth." Xothwithstanding the loss of property, and the "too free use of apple-jack," he maintained the dignity of ex-Judge, dressed neatly, carried a gold-headed cane, and when he had carried more than the usual allowance of his favor ite beverage, he was very pious, at such times always attending church, and sit ting near the stand as erectly as cir cumstances would admit, and respond ing fervently. On one occasion a Baptist brother was holding forth with energy and nnction on the evils of the times, aud in one of his flights exclaimed: "Show me a drunkard !" The Judge arose to his feet, and un steadily balancing himself on his cane, said solemnly : "liBre I am, sir, here 1 amr1 -' The Elder, though a good deal non plused by the unexpected response, managed to go on with his discourse, and soon warming up to his work, again called put: "fcbow me a hypocrite ! Show me a hypocrite!" Jndgc W. again arose, and reached forward across a seat which intervened, touched Deacon D. on the shoulder with his cane, and said : "Deacon D., why don't you respond sir? Why don't you respond? I did when they called me!" Help Yourself. Fight your own battles. Hoe your own row. Ask no favors of any one and you'll succeed five thousand times better than one who is beseeching some one's Influence and'patronage. Xo one will ever help you as you can help your self, because no one will be so heaxtly interested in your affairs. - The step will not be such a long one, perhaps but carving your own way up the moun tain, you make one lead to another, and stand firm in that while you chop still another out. , Men who made fortunes are not those who bad five thousand dollars given to start with, but boys who have started, fair with a well earned dollar or two. Men who have acquired fame have nev er been thrust into popularity by puffs begged or paid for, or given in friendly pirit. They have stretched out their own hands and touched the public heart. Men who win love do their own woo- ing,and I never knew a man fail so signally as one who induced his affec tionate grandmamma to speak a good word for him. Whether you work for fame, for love, for money, or for any thing else, work with your hands, heart and brain and say "I will" and some day you will eonquer. . Xever let any man have to say, "I have xl ragged you up." Too many friends hurt a man more than none at all. Grace Green wood. Important Scientific Discovery. Very important discoveries,of a scien tific nature, have just been made by Judge Hastings, of the California State Geological Survey, and Dr. Blake, lead ing electrician of the Academy ot Sci ences of that State. The variations of the magnectic needle, in some instan ces to the extent of two points of the compass, have engaged the attention of the scientists of California for several years past, as these variations could not be attributed to the common cause deposits ot magnetic substances in the earth being irregular both iu extent and direction. Judge Hastings is be lieved to have solved the problem, and explaining the phenomenon lie has opened a new field of scientific research. He has demonstrated the existence of a well-defined and powerful belt of elec tricity, having its directions nearly north and south, and diffusing its for ces over a broad expanse, from a nar row central current of great density, located in the latitude of San Francisco, an average distance of one hundred and fifty miles inland, with a liability change its course a hundred miles, more or less, in either direction, and having an intermittent and unsteady flow. To the variations of this great electrical belt are due the variations of the magnetic needle. This discovery derives its significance from the fact that furnishes a direct key to the earth quake phenomena of the Pacific coast. This electric current, it is contended, follows the course of a belt of metallic deposits, acting as the great earth con ductor between the poles. Under pe culiar conditions of the natural forces, isolated bodies of electricity gather at different points where large metallic deposits exist, until the degree of dens ity overcomes the limit of insulation, and sweeping away they come in con tact with the grand central current, re covering equilibrium with a terrific con- ulsion, of which the explosion of the lightning in the atmosphere is but typ ical, and a broad expanse of the earth's surface is disturbed by the commotion. The extent and violence ol the earth quake is governed by the volume aud density of these collateral fields of elec tricity, and the space they traversed in uniting with the central current. The climatic peculiarities of that State are also explained by this discovery, and are now attributed to elecrical influ ences entirely. All other theories have been abandoned. One deduction of Judge Hastings, from these discoveries, is, that the overwhelming attraction of the electrical current following this coast, sweeps in the elevtriety of the at mosphere during a greater part of the year, and thus draws the great rain pro ducing forces. This attraction can be modified, if not comparatively over come, by the planting of trees and shrubbery, the effect of which would be to interrupt the attraction, and even tually summer showers could become as frequent and salutary in their effect as in the Eastern States. ' Judge Hastings strongly urges that sueh a measure be made the subject of legislative action. Goodness of heart is man's best treas ure, hi brightest honor, and noblest ac quisition. It is that ray of the Divini ty which dignifies humanity. "I tee through It," at the washer-woman laid when the bottom of the tub fell out. DRESSED FOR MEETING. DRESSED FOR MEETING. A. H. POE.

It is known that the will which Mr. Greeleymust have drawn If he drew it at all, after his mind was faulty deranged, and which he signed in the article of death, gave his whole property to Miss Ida Grtcley, who is a Catholic, and placed her younger sister, Gabrlelle, who is a Prostestant, under Ida's guardianship both as to person, education and property rights.

Among the losses of life reported in consequence of the late teri-iiic storm are the following: Hon. n. K. Wells, of Preston, reports the loss of a Minister and family from Line Springs, Iowa, visiting in Fillmore county. The min ister, with bis wife and two children, undertook to reach home, and when near home the horses gave out, and he took one child and made his way to the house, but in returning to the cutter, where he had left his wife and remain ing child, he was lost, and was found the next day frozen to death. His wife and child left in the cutter were also found dead, but the one taken to the house was found alive. A man had been seen hangiue around a grove in Fillmore county some days before the storm. He was out during the fearful storm of Tuesday night, but was found and taken to the county poor-farm. where both hands and feet were ampu tated. He gave his name as Lee, is de lirious, and begs of Sheriff Martin not to kill him. He is supposed to be a criminal wanted by Sheriff Martin, of Winona county. . E. E. Payne, of Rochester, got caught in the recent terrible storm while riding in Dodge county, within a few miles of Kasson, and lay ont one whole day and two nights before he could find a house. He says he passed Mr. Gaskill's before dark, expecting to make Mr. Tucker's, about a mile further south, but - when about half way was so blinded by the storm that I turned to take my back track to Mr. G.'s, which I bad just pass ed. Jly only guide was tne wind, ana that changed to west north-west, with out my knowledge or consent, and af ter wandering, perhaps an hour, I pot up for the night by turning my ponies loose and my cutter up, and sat me down to rest, within twenty rods of Andrew Johnson's house. There I was all night, singing, praying, and work-, ing to keep alive. At one time I struck my hands three hundred times, and at another kicked my feet five hundred times. At length day dawned but no abatement of the storm. I could not see two rods after digging ont of wher I was drifted under, and could hardly stand, the wind blew so, I was afraid to leave, and returned to my snowy nest and laid me down to die, if it was God's will. For hours I stood the storm shivering, with clothes wet and frozen. At last I repeated the verse : " ' "I can but perish if I go, I am resolved to try. For if I stay right here. I know . I shall most surely die." I started by holding on to the fenee until I found a sled track, which with, difficulty I followed until I found a granary and stable, but conld not find a house. I i-tayed in the stable for lionrs, waiting for some one to. come, but in vain, and again started out in search of a house; got lost and could not find the stable agam, until wander ing perhaps an hour I again struck the track, which I followed to the stable, to find some one had been there and fas tened the only door. As my only al ternative, I found an open shed and straw stack, and made my bed amid the drifting snow, without any buffalo robe and spent another long, long night. Thursday morning found me alive, and the sky somewhat clear; so about eight o'clock I found a house within ten rods of where I had been several times the day before on every side of it."

On losk ing over, I saw a large serpent passing within six feet of the ship's quarter. I called the entire ship's crew on deck to witness the sight. When the serpent was some fifteen or twenty feet astern he lifted bis head above the water, opened his month, and looked around after the ship with surprise though he had just awakened ont of sound sleep. As near as I could judge, he must have been at least fifty feet long and two feet in di ameter. He was of a deep brown color with a few black spots. Less than five minutes afterward another of the same species passed on the other side of the sliip,within fifteen feet from us. It was coiled up, and seemed to be sleeping. It was about the same size a, the other. The distance from the poop to the water is eighteen feet. The weather was tine and all on board saw the sight."
