All at once a pleasant thought bectned to strike the venerable prior, aud he said to the pleasant couple: "My children, take you that mighty flitch of bacon as a- testimonial for your fidelity and tender affection to ward odo another. Mcthiuks such love as yours niaketh the whole world bet ter and brighter. The story of it hath given a sweetness to this autumn morn beyond the sweetness of summer roses.

' "' , ; Fuesh Grapes at ..'all. 'KA60f. . "We once knew a gentleman,''' writes a California edi'or, "who supplied his table with fresh gropes from one sca son to another. His plan was to gath er, when quite ripe,, the , largest and fhest bunches of grapes, and pack them in sawduet, using,' instead of boxes; common ' bail keg?, which he purchased for a triflo at a hardware store. ..' After carefully packing the desired number of kegs he buried the lot in a trench, dug in high ground beneath a Bhed, whero the water could neither fall nor soak in. Before using the sawdust ho carefully dried it in the sun or in. an oven ontil it waa en tirely tree from rooiethre. : We never witnessed the packing process, but we know he always had the grape, and in tlija way, ho told us he preserved tbctn.' After being burred for months the grapes were as sweet and finely' flavored as If just gathered ' from 'the vines. If it will preserve the grapes, a new, proftable buniness might be built up. - Bunches ol fresh grapes in the spring would be-w -novelty, and bjlng that, would command ' high price. We hope some of our grape growers wiU try the experiment." wealth nd prosperity, a land which by the hand of the rkillful hufbam man and ingeuiotH mechanic, may be covered with magnificent farms, ami line f irm houses, and mill', and facto lien, wiin pienant villages, neat cliurchc and school houses, and Cue roads aud bridges. liut one thing is wauling to secure ull of these blessings to this imperial ed country.
