Maggie Morton wus a very liao little girl if rihe uat a tomboy. She oouKi ride " any horse ' (so she said, but her experience bad been limited thus far to a couple of aged specimens who plowed corn for a living), rake buy, hoe com, fish, "pull off shoots" wbioh, trans lated, meant firing off her brother 1 lur ry 'tj gun and sundry other accomplinh ments we bave not space here to men tion. Bat you never heard this little lass boast of work indoors. Indeed no. She lived in tho open air a great por tion of tbe time, and it could not be ex pected of ber that she should take care of Dame Nature and her mother, too. So shti ran wild, and was healthy and happy. Now, with nil her health and good nature, Maggie bad one fault. Slit told very large stories, and was apt to deceive when it served h r purpose ; ami this sketch is to explain bow this little girl was tripped up completely by a rope of her own stretching. One fine spring morning hor uncle Amos stooped as he wus parsing the house, and called to Maggie, who was very busily engaged in building a miui ftture leaning tower out of brick so much of a leaning one, in fact, that it managed to fall over when it got hell the required height. Bhe heard tho 011, ud in a Hash was standing by the aide oi the carriage in which her rela tive was seated. M A present for you, Maggie," he said, as ht dropped a wee black puppy into her apron, which she had instinctively held out after hearing tho fiiBt two words. "Ob, thank yon, unele. What a good one be if, isn't he ? I expect ho will grow up to wat.h me and bite folks ; don't you think he will?" "I nope not," replied her uncle, as lie drove away "1 expect to make a few call 4 daring the year myself ; and if he is ungrateml enough to bite one who saved him Lorn drowning, 1 shall be torry for my efforts in hn behalf." Maggie wended her way toward the house in silent contemplation of the an imal that scrambled around in her apron, now and then giving vent to a spiteful yell in finding himself in such close quarters. " Ob, mamma," she cried, on filtering the house, "just look here! Such a real, blessed little puppy ! He's mine. I'nclo Amos gave him to me. Hear him scream for milk. Please will you skim a mess, to he may quit and wag his tail? ' " Not now, dear," replied tho com posed mother, as she opened tbe oven door and withdrew a loaf of snowy bread. "I will see to him by and by. It is time for you to get ready for school. John and Huny have already gone." The tears sprang into Maggie's eyes. Not even one minute left wherein to enjoy the companionship ol bet beau tiful pet. She abruptly left the room. After some ten minutes had passed, her mother stepped to the door and called her. No answer. She called again. Then a faint voice: " I don't bTeve I can go to uchool to-dav, ma." "Why, my dear?" " I've got the toothache, oh, ever so bad." " How long have you had it ?" " O, a good long while ; but it came on harder since "Since the dog came, I suppose?" added ber mother. "No, it wasn't the puppy did it. It just came on." Now it po chanced that Mr. Clinton, the teacher, had called at the house tho evening before, and confided to MrB. Morton and ber husband a genu ine and delightful surprise for the whole school. Mr. Gibson, the owner of a beautiful place near by, had in vited him to bring his whole school on the following day for a good twelve hours' recreation strawberries and cream in abundance, and a good time generally. Mr. Clinton also stated that tins gentleman had kindly furnished boats he lived across a beautiful river that ran by the school-house and oars men beside. "So I shall merely call the school to order," ho added, " and after telling them where we are going, pack them off ; for my friend says he wants to greet them in their every-day school garb not dressed up for the oc casion." Of course Mr. and Mrs. Morton promised to keep all this to themselves ; but they both had enjoyed in anticipa tion tbe store of genuine pleasure for their three children. Hut hero was Maggie with a made up toothache, ask ing to remain at home, utterly ignorant of the sacrifice she was making. With a half sigh her mother assented to her staying, with tho added inquiry as to which particular tooth it was that troubled her. "Don't know," replied the little cul prit, trying to cry, "I bTeve it's all of em. " Come here, then. I shall rub pain killer around each tooth." "Oh no, ma," oxelaimerl the youthful invalid, -nddenly UifC to the dangers of having the toothache all KTOttttd. "I guess it's on'y a little front one. Don't pnt it on any but the fronton, pleeee, and I will get over it real soon." Mrs. Morton always did as she said, however. She rubbed the preparation generously throughout the sufferer's mouth, and, doing her face np in red flannel, bade her stay in-doors, on pain of severe punishment, and left her to her own reflections. Noon came. Maggie had played with her puppy to her heart's content, and was tired of him. So, with her noso pressed flat against the window-paue, she watched for her brothers. But they came not. Two, three, four o'clock, and still no Harry, no John. Poor Maggie was almost beside herself with anxiety by this time, and could not help wondering at the calm demeanor of her mother. Hut just as the sun sank out of sight the front door slammed, as it only can slam when boys are about, and in rushed the absent ones, full of boisterous mirth, and very much stained about tho mouth. "Where have you been?" impaired Maggie, wonderinglv. " Been!" replied Harry, dancing vig orously on one leg. " Why, over to Mr. Gibson's, to be sure. The whole school was invited. Wo went across in boats he sent for us. I tell you it was jolly. Wasn't it, John?' " It was that," replied John, throw ing his hat in the curat r and stretching himself on the lounge. "Hut what was tho mattt r with you, Mag? All the girls were crazy to know why you weren't there." "Maggie unfortunately received the gift of a fine pup, ami was immediately seized with a severe toothache," replied Mrs. Morton, gravely. "Mr. Clinton had told me before of ibis holiday, and I knew what my little girl lost by ber atllietion ; but as sbo said she was un able to go I let her stay at home." Poor Maggie ! This was the uukiud est cut of all. To know of such a pleasure and keep her out of it! Her lips quivered and her little form trembled, and her Lrothers looked on in silent pity. "Your tooth is somewhat better, is it not?" inquired Mrs. Morton, calmly. "It's just like it always wis," replied the child, rising defiantly to her feet. " ft never ached ! I lied, so I did !" Mrs. Morton was I wigej mother. She did net turn the child from her at this critical moment, when rebellious na ture, smarting umbr disappointment, Oonfeeeed its misdeeds for spite's sake. No, indeed. She tenderly passed her arm about Maggie's waist, and drawing her elose to her, softly said : "Learn from this, my dear child, that falsehood brings its own reward. I love you. So do we all. But your be setting sin has punished you justly to-day." Maggie ha i the real, genuine tooth ache about six months after this event, but kept it all to herself for a whole day, like a little heroine, and was only betrayed when sbo burst into tears from very pain. "I knew it was real toothache, ma," she said; "but it made rae feel so 'shamed to think of when I bad it make believe, that I kept still till it broke through." Christian I 'ii'ton.

Now, my young friends, in case any of you should come across a nice round, yellow mock orange, I'll tell you what 10 do with it provided your grand mother already has a good one in ber st ckiiig-basket. If not, you should give it to her, and get yourself another one. Actuary bird told me that the way old ladies darned stockings was to put a big yellow ball in them, and then pick at them with a queer sort of a shiny steel bill ; and though his de scription wasn't clear, I knew what he meant. Well, you take your round mock-orange, and force a knitting needle clear through it from the stem end, so that it will turn evenly on the needle. Then, with a blunt needle, you mark the grand divisions of the earth upon it Europe, Asia, Africa, and America (you seo I know them) in just the right shape, and then you put in yotir oceans and islands, and what not, all complete. Next you go OVei all the markings with a camel's hair brush dipped in red ink, or violet ink, or any water-color you choose, taking care to wipe tho orango off in stantly with a soft, damp cloth. Tho color will sink into the markings and leave the surface of the mock-oranoro oleen. plete. prop, vour Then you have your globe com And you can muke a little if you aie ingenious, that will let globe revolve on its knitting- needle or axis, at preciFe'y tho right After a while it gets drv and angle. hard, and if you please you can go over the markings once more with a fine pen dipped m the proper color.

There were but few orders from tli interior, and but little Hpeculutivo demnnd from other markets. As usual at this MMOa, there is but littln shipping de mand, tho absence of any shipping worth mentioning being duo now to tbe fact that local speculation has f. treed prices ubove a "I lipping margin ; prices being against ship pers all round. Tbe reports from Liverpool nd New York were without any very impor tant changea, but tbe governing iiiihiencc! were generally of a local speculative character. The receipts of all kinds of grain were lighter than during the preceding week, and showed a larger docreaso when compired with tbe same week last year. Tho shipments were also lighter, th stock in store showing an increase ol 880,000 be vhoat, 150,000 hu corn. 170, 000 bu oats. 3.000 bu ryo. and 18,000 Lu barley. There was but little Inquiry for Hour, ehippers holding off. Bprlng wheat was moderately active, but comewhat unsettled. Values at one time wei. e to lc lower, and again higher under the manipulations of speculators. The car rent quotations at tho close, however, wore about the samo as at the opening. Tho coin market is iu a rather peculiar condition. We have a "corner" In old No. 2 for thin month, and prioM have advanced from 77e to 80c, and this tigure was freely bid at the clone. It is generally conceded that a good many "shorts" are still Outstanding, and the probability is that prices will rule higher this wet k : that is, should the combination deem it prudent to tgntu the mar kot any further. New ccrn was weak, both for present and also for future delivery, tho receipts being larger than had been expected . The oat market was m tho same general coi.d tion an tho corn trade--a " corner" for Deoetnbw being a feature of the trade.
