Nat Tuckur, a Yankee pedlar of the most
. incorrigible kind, in dry goods, clocks!, had

'as fair cramo, and determined to 'sell some

Accordingly tlio first house he drew up ht
'., on entering tue town was the house ot tbe
i Squire, it ' was at the close oi a warm
May in July, arid thcod man sat'.cOropla-
oently smoking his pipe under the porch of
' 'his house. ;' As Nat approached him with
" a clock under, his arm and a dosen of sil
rVer spoons in his hand, the old 'man ma;
jestically waved him off, at the same time
exclaiming;: "i V'iH
'Clear out! Don't you come in here I
don't want any 6 our tribe round melj I
know you, '. , . - ; '
-.l- ' Wal, ' I mus 'low; - Squire said Nat,
J good naturedly,' that you've got the ad
vantage of m, for I don't know you, and
-I guess - your neighbors don't nuther, for
. they tell'd me you was a good Christian,
. and never turned a " hungry . man away
from your door.'

The cooln8s and sulf-pyssession of Nat
enusod the Squire to pnuse,- for he was a
who!e:soutud, hospitable iuan, and ho he
ff!n to think lie might ba mistakpn in
Nat' 'true oharaolon, . At length he iir
quired, looking tile visitor steadily in the
face, 'Auswor me one quosliou' ain't you
a pedlar?'- ' , '
'Pedlar be darned !-no snid Nit!
'Then What are you bringin' tliem things
io the house fur?', queried the old man,
pointing to the articles which Nat Was car
rying'.'. " '. t-r . .r
... Wi.1, the fact is replied NaC-. -rdpn't
much like to . leave those silver spoons in
my wagun, for somebody might make love
to 'em, and as for this era clock, I couldn't

I'll tell 'em how good-)'oU me to s'.raii

vited in.' .'"The Squire's wife was out, but
the old man soon placed a bowl of pure
milk and some white bread before Nat.who
luying aside the old-fashioned spoon which
Mie old man Drought lum,. supplied its
place with one of his own, and proceeded
to 'go in' as though ho ' had fasted for a
nionih. v. When lie had about half fihhihed

turn his spoon over and eye it ndmiririsly

Done! said the' Squire, and immeditit?
ly he was put into", possession of a dozen
plated spoons, for which he exchunged ft
dozen solid, old-fashioned silver tines nud
the boot.'- Natsctmed to regret Lis bar
gain, . ana showed no disposiiion to take
the old spoons wliioh'lho Squiio laid in a
bunch below hinv When the lat'or. fearing
he might alter- hiv mind and - demnud his
property -bat-k, left the roo'm for;, the pur
pose of stowing them snugly away, ' "
A broad grin passed over Nai'6 ace as
the old man disappeared, and rising from
his scat he approached one of : those solid,
old fashioned English clocks, specimens of
which mny yet occasionally bo mot Willi,
which occupied a position in one corner of
the' room. ..Opening the door," Nat cut the
cords which sustained the weights, so that
the slightest jar would, be sure to part
them, and then thirsting his knife tip un
derneath the face of the clock", ho clipped
alj the. cogs but one from one of the wheels,
closed the case again, and had just taken
his seat wheu'the Squire entered. .
'Tell vou what, Squire said Nat, as
suming a frightful ' expression of i. counte
nance, 'I begin to feel bad '(mid I'm a
goin tohkvQono'of i'hem dratted file which
takes me down sometimes. Yes, " there it
comes!' he yelled, and immediately nfter
he jumped from his chair high enough al
most to louiill' the ' ceiling and came down
upon the floor with a force which shook
the house to its foundation ' v
; 'Bang!"Uang!'-" went the weights of the
old clock, and 'rick! rick! click! click! snap!
snapl' 'went the ' wheels, ' till the Squire
was fairly dumb-founded, and . knew not
whioh '- to'nttend to' first, the old t loct or
Nat',' who lay writhing upon the floor; f ' ,
Tho scene- ,did not last long,' however,,
for Nat very speedily recovered; and then
the Squire iilluded to the noise which tho
clock had made.'. Nat examincd it, and
pronounced 'it ' won out.' Ho told. tho
Squire he had belter either make a rat-trap
of it; or sell it to the first second-band fur
uiture man that camo along. : Then he in
cidentally and qnito carelessly mentioned
his own clock, and comparing it with the
Squire's, pointed out the new improvo
rocnts, especially the 'alarm' arrangement,
at all of which the old man waeoousumed-
ly tickled, ' and the upshot was that the

clock, worth about twenty dollars, for ft
'tcn shilling article. JNat now tliought it
about time to travel, and accordingly de
parted.'-'' He stowed tho old clock, together
with the Squire's spoons, carefully away
in- the bottom of his wagon, - out of sight,.
and started: but had not cone ' far when be
met the Squire's wife, of whom- ha had
managed to get a full description, both with
regard WTier temper and appearance, re
turning homeward. :' '.'
Aint your name Mrs . B?' hfl inquirfed,
as they 'met. , ' , " ' . - ,
:Yes,' said the old lady, erjappishly, 'but
what's that your business?' ' "
. : 'Oh, nothing replied Nat; 'only I didn't
know but what you d like to buy a few no-
tions-p-a pair ot sdissors,, lor instance. , .
stepped into your bouse, yonder, and tn

buy any new ones for- you, and, you
shouldn't buy for yourself. .:

He did so replied Nat, 'andyoujihod'nt

oouseut.' . ,'-'.ii..: ', -..-

she immediately proceeded to purchase nu
merous articles to the amount of about three
dollars, all tho money she hf d wiih her,
after which sho proeeoded homeward, boil
ing over with wrath, and Nt-J proceedd on
his way whistling. -Words would fail to
give a correct description of the' scene of
crimination and re-crimination which fol
lowed when tho Squire's wife reached
home, and we shall not attempt it, but shall
pass on to an incident which, occurred
some t!mo after. . The ' o'd folks had been
reconciled to each other, and Went, by iu
vltation, to a neighboring town. While
thero they fonnd their- way into. t show
shop, and almost the first thing that at
tracted their attention,, was their old t-Ioek,

story of a man on a Mississippi steamor,
who was questioned by a Yankee. The

all his questions . straight for warily, until
the dowp easter was fairly puzzled for an

'Look here, Stjuire, where wasyou born?'.
'I was born, said the victim, 'in Boston,
