"What is it thai you rtefire my cliil
drcn? and why do you k.ieel here so
humbly?'' aked tlio kind old prior
The voting man looked up with a
happy finite, most beautiful to see,
und replied: ,
'Futher, twelve months and a day
huve passed siuco wo were wedded
and from that blessed hour we have
lived in perfect peace, confldence and
love. Not one word of bitterness,
uiikiudness or disciiMon has parsed
between us. We have gone on. grow
ing more ' and more happy, grateful
and loving day by day, and now we
have come to this hdy house of. onr
blessed Lady of , Diimnow to crave
your bless ng on the wedded love
tliut has stood so good a test."
Tlio prior smiled benignly, and,
stretching out his thin, white bunds,
ho blessed them fervently, rejoicing,
devout old monk though he was, . in
tlicir beauteous youth, their faith and
and joy and tender love.
i The wedded lovers bowed their fair
heads yet more; humbly, eeemitig to
feel that grucioua benediction falling
upou tliem lika an invisible celestial
ehowcr. Then they roso up, inurmur
ei tlicir th u tt k s and , wero about to
turn away lrom the door when they
caught sight ol the convent cook com
ing down into the court bearing on his
back a huge flitch of -brown , bacon.
The cook, was a fat, lazy, short
broathed old fellow, and he seen ed so
overwhelmed by his burden ' that
the happy young couule, , beholding
him, laughed out right merrily. : The
old prior laughed also, and even the
solemn monks behind him seemed glad
of an opportunity to stretch the stiff
muscles about their mouth and smiled
grimly at the ludicrous eight., .
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.
Bo take our lovely' gi(t---feast"your
friends upon it, and think sometimes
on- the Convent on Dunmowand, on
the old man who 'has done with the
with the life ot the world hut not
with gentle, human sympathies." "
'The young mail seemed touche l, and
smiled aoftlv as he responded :; 4We

There was great rejoicing at tho
convent but greater at the castle,
when Sir Reginuld, who had been
sorely missed, camo wulklng quietly
and smilingly through its great urrh
ed portal, with his genik brid.e and
whet, the rare beauty of the young
couple fame out from umier the eclipse
of their rudo peasant dress, and shone
resplendent in the rich -costume be
coming their station, : But all Said
that the light of love und content in
the young hnshand'a eyes was a rarer
and more beautiful "sight to see- than
the diamond cirf let ho placed on the
fair heud of his bride nnd that even
thosiJ costly jewels' seemed to palo in
the ridiance of her sweet, simple gras
ciousness the "ornament ol a mock
and quiet spirit," which she always
wore. ": ,
It is said that ' Sir Reg! oatd j'and
Lady Fitzwator . lived, .many happy
years, und died on the some, day and
were buried in one grave.: Grace
Greenwbad, in T'10 Record. ' "'
, ; 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."
