A woman may bo Hurrounfed by

prosperity ; but if she feels herself
unloved and nlo e to her heart, the
crown jwel in her diadem of hap
piness is lost, things lose their val

monotonous. The honest, tender
love of two brave hearts who have

and money enough to feed clothe
and educate them, make life a t hous

wit hout the tedious and laborious pnrpose. As affairs now are, a

have no idea what is the process I
for making butter without the aid !

that Mrs. Hyde will apply for a',

making the article may soon come
into general use.
She Wou Idnt Marry a Mechanic.
A young man commenced visit
ing a yaang woman, and appeared
to be well pleased. One evening
hecalhd when it was quite late,
which led the young lady to in
quire where he had been.
"I bad to work tOrOigbt."
"What, do you woi k for a liv
ing?"' she inquired in astonish
ment. "Certainly," replied the young
man, "I am a mechanic.''
'T dislike the name of a me
clianic,'' and she turned up her
pretty nose.
That was the last time the young
man visited that young lady. He is
now a wealthy man, and has one of
the best women in the country for
a wife.
The lady who disliked the name
of a mef-banic is now the wife of a
miserable foo, a regular vagrant
about grog shops and tho miserablo
girl is obliged to take in washing
in order to support herself and
children. ...
