Thus IiTary camo in possession of on iron thimble, a . tin neeoile-ho: and a brass ring for various needlework per formed on Johnny's .sleeves or the kneoVof his trousers, which saved him many ti taste of the parental rod. To the credit of their childhood it must be said that Mary iiever had to return those gifts, there being few dis agreements between them, and these wore quickly reconciled. In their youth they had tramped hanil-in-haml to Sunday-school, as they now did to church.

To have a man beside her whom everybody regarded as her lover dressed in tho height of fashion with no income but the product of his farm labor spoilt Alary b hunilay temper to such an ex tent that she resolved to let John know her mind before another Sunday could tic spoilt. Now John, blissfully ignorant of her feelings, was lust then stroking his moustache and persuading himself of the necessity of .Inlying another suit for the occasion that should make Mary his wife. After church John told Mary that he wasgciing to town the next day to buy something for her, and a new suit for himself, in which ho would appear some evening wit h a very important question. Ho looked in vain for the rosy tint Mary's face. .She only said, with' faint sneer: ' "Do put some ense in the next suit yon get, John 'Then you don't think there H much senso in the suit when I'm in it, eh?' laughed John, with a faint suspicion that her indiil'erence was owing to his not appearing sooner in some later st vie. Ho resolved that the next one should surpass anything he ever, wore. 'Gratify .a" girl's vanity,' and ' she's venirs,"he tbonghr, without the slight est suspicion that he was gratifying own and thereby fast losing his hold the handsomest and most sensible girl there was in the neighborhood of sixty miles John, too, was considered no small catch. Many a pirl s heart was fluttering when gho heard his strong narilone vjloo lowered to conmlential whisper. For John was not only dandy but a flirt. All his heart ever dwulttm with constancy was Mary and lashionablo suits Kvcry year he went to town for a new rig, from top to toe, of the latest cut He fell himself a foot taller when salesman once told him that his face nnd figure wouhl do credit to Uroadway style. Of course John wouldn't show ignorance of city life by ascertaining the particulars of that style, lie felt satisfied that purchases made from saii(T sile.sriian every year would secure him the niucli-lamlcu style, The new suit bought, John was giv ini it its first airing by a visit to Marv, He had ruado up his mind to propose iormauy ana be formally accepted: The engagement rins was in his pocket and tho wedding -suit should be tho he had on.

"You ' must; know, Mary, that I've conio to prefer lnv suit to your father." said John, confident that now things would he settled in a moment. "Well, j'ou needn't have come for that. John, replied Mary, growing very red, "for I shouldn't give a hair of my father's head for a dozen Miilsof yours." ' "I mean you will let me urge my suit with your father, won't you, Mary dear?" persisted John, himself puzzled and ready to talk jdain'country talk if this li st eflort at formality tailed. It did fail. Mary placed distance between them as fast a -i tho room would allow. With her eves Hashing anything but love, she shouted across the room: '"John Kedpath, you are ititolerabl and insulting! A moment ago yon had the kindness to tell ine that you pre furred your suit to my father, as if there was a probability of his being vonrs!

As long as you don't show the sense and stability of a man in your outward appearance 1 expect less from the man within, replied Mary, keep ing her lover at bay with a severe look. John bit his lips. It was his time to get mad at such womanish ignorance of men's style, "That's all you know about style, Mary.

His look was annihilating as he said: I guess vou vo got some other fellow in your eve, Maryr Yes, John, 1 have, replied Mary, thinking of the man she would like him to be, and watching the eltect of her words with a little pleasure. John winced. . But he hoped the gold ring in his pocket might yet reverse her ecision. "Won t you take tins ring, Mary, and let that, other go?" he beg ged, humbly. No, John, 1 d rather have the other fellow." It was said so very quietly and with such a determined "the other lelluw. that John knew there was no hope for him. He would have fiked nothing better than fighting his fortunate rival Swallowing his daggers which made his voice sound harsh and fierce he said If you've got some one else, I should just liko to have the presents I gave vou wnen I was a boy. it means 'mad for good' this time." Mary started. She was not quite prepared to make such a sacrifice. 15ut, of course, Mary was too proud now to recall anything, and she really had made up her mind not to have John, he stuck to his vanities. . After a few minutes absence, in which John felt himself the most mis erable of men. Mary re-appeared. .with her hand full of trinkets. His hope that sho would cry and then make up, as they did years ago, re ceived its death blow in the soft but determined voice in which she said Here, John, is your iron thimble your tin needle-box and vour brass ring. "All right, Mary llcpworth. Maybe you'll be sorry for this. I'm going straight to your cousin Sarah, where know mv suit win do more welcome. Withthis he dashed out of the gate and up tho road toward Sarah's home leaving Mary leaning against tho win dow in anytiiing but a cheerful mood She had intended to break him of his vanity, and then marry him; for there was everything that was good and gen erous in John, and it never occurred her that thev could do without each other. And now he was gone, thimble, needle-box, ring and all. Mary didn't cry. Tho hope that Sarah had gone as usual to prayer- meeting, and In the meantime John anger wo dd abate and his love return to her, held its own against the bitter ness of self-approach and regret. but when tho next day wore ou, ami the evening was far advanced, and the possibility that Sarah hadn't gone prayer-meeting, and that at this very moment she was entertaining her futui husband on cider and ginger-snaps, grew to a certainty, thero was nothing lor her to do hut to go out of sight am. sound of fickle humauity, nnd bury her grief in the neighborhood of the spring where John and she had so often list ened to the music of the falling water, and the song of love within, John must have had a similar im pulse, for when sho drew near spring and pulled , her handkerchief from her pocket in preparation for ffood cry, she saw John with bis head mriedon his knees and oh, joy? dress ed in the ordinary working-clothes which she always liked to see him. Her first impulse to make up was re strained by the fear that be might Sarah's bethrothed. - She swallowed big lump in her throat and tried to look very indifferent, as she said: "Good evening, Mr. Kedpath. Per haps I may congratulate vou?" "No you mayn't eitficr, I've nothing to be congratulated for, except that I made a scare-crow out of thirty-dollar suit, but it don't seem be a aucoess even thero. The crows as hard on the corn as over,", This time the tears came very quickly to Mary's eyes. Sho knelt down on grass besido lilru, and said softly: "John, please give me my thimble again?" 'J'no iron thimble was fished from depths of John's pockets aud handed to Mary in silence. Ihe momentary stillness was again broken by tuo samo pleading voice: "John, wlcaso rrivo m) mv tin needle- I case 'I he neV lle-enso ehaii-fed owners la the same mechanical la hion." "You look very nice now, John. You look like a man, you know, that ono could love and look up to," saiil Mary, at the same time pushing hack tho slouch hat and peering closely in his eves. "Mart, will you take the gold ring now?" Mary held 'out her finger and John slipped the gold ring on just as ho had lipped on tho brass ring ten years ago. ".Mary, may I kiss you now She only noddeil her head, and John was timid, after a certain adventure the day before. "You won't treat me like vou did the other dav, Marv, if I kiss you?" Mary laughed, a little confused, as she answered: "I daren't now, you know; we're engaged." It was a long while before she mado any ellort to free herself from his arms after that. - When they walked home past tho cornfield in which the crows were still busy getting their late supper, in spile of the fashionable seare in the center of the field, John, remembering that other fellow, who had caused him a sleepless nigh), wanted to know who his formal rival was. "He is John Kedpath, the farmer and I want you to be good to him,' said Mary, archly. "The fellow I didn't liko is Mr. Kedpath, the dandy, who lsn t even successful as a scare crow, vou see. Is it any wonder I would have him.' Koth laughed, and were happy.

COLUMBUS, O., July 24, 1883. Tim Constitutional 1'rohihitionists held their Slate convention in the City Hall In this city to-ilny. About two hundred gen tlemeu and seventy-five ladies were pres ent. Rer. J. C. Jackson, jr., of Columbus, called the convent ion to order at in o'clock, ami Rev. Dr. Walilen was chosen tempor ary Chairman. Included in the opening exercises was a rousiiiK Bonp, "l o VI HI t-otiquer or uie," by Prof. ft. K. Hudson, of Alliance. On taking the chair Dr. l alden mud he considered thut the voters of Ohio, "re gardless of party feeling," had an oppor tunity, for tho first time in the history of the State, to express themselves upon tho great question of prohibition. Permanent organization was then effected by the election of the following nftlcri President, Hon. Mills Gardner, of Wash ington C. H.; Vice-President, Mrs. Mary A. Woodhridge, of Ravenna: Secretary, J. H. Morris, Piqua, with II. H. Hill, of East Liverpool, and J. II. Rhodes, of Clyde, as assistants. Upon taking the chair, Mr. Oardner said he had heard it announced that the con vention was held In the interests of one of the greut political paities of the State. This he wanto-d to deny. They repre sented no nolitical party, but had assembled as the representatives of every political jiarty with one common purpose and one common aim, and that was the endeavor to do all in their power to ob tain the adoption by the people of what was known as the second constitutional amendment, prohibiting the sale of intoxi cating liquors within the Statu. He hoped that it would be understood that all that the convention had gathered for was to represent tho senso of the people in con nection with this traffic, and that is the only thing rej)resented. Mr. Gardner earnestly advocated the adoption of the second omendinent, saying that he fully believed the adoption of the first amend ment would bo worse then to leave both alone altogether; that the adojition of the prohibition amendment would put the stamp of outlawry upon the traffic of in toxicating liciuors and prevent everywhere the enforcement of a contract in the liquor business. It made no difference, he said, which party was in power, they would take heed and sec that the voice o the ieo ple is listened to. Mr. A. B. Campbell, President of the Kansas Temperance Union, next addressed the convention. He denied strongly that prohibition was a failure in Kimsas, and said that in throe-fourths of the State pro hibition did prohibit. Ho predicted that the Prohibition candidates would be elected by overwhelming majorities next taJl. Mr, Campbell was followed by Mr. M. V. Bennett, editor of the Kansas 1'ntfiiIn'tiftH- it.

Tho afternoon was raw ami cold, and he drew up on a summit of a moun tain to take some refreshments. The guide partook of the sandwiches, but declined the lla.sk of whisky. The tour ist to test him laid tlown a crown-piece nnd said: "Now.my lad, you shall have that if you will take a sup of whisky." "Not for ten thousand times the crown-piece, nor for all the lands you see, would I touch a single drop. Vour honor must hear me.

There are many people In this world who know full well the true-meaning of this truth. Among them is a man in Madison County, N. Y. While I was: engaged in M , n village in Madison County, one of the leading men of thf town, a church mem'. or, and a pr fessed Temperance man, attended the ineetuigs. He refused to sign (ha pledge. Not only did he refuse, but ho said he did not believe ill pledge sign ing. His presence at the meeting be came in jurious to the work. Other peo ple who looked upon this man as a lead er, were kept back by his argument and example. Among those who stood be hind dim were his two sons. I said to him one night: "Do you know you are exerting a bad inlluence in these meetings? Do vou know vou are virtually saving: 'This reform movement is all wrong?" "No, I don't mean any such thing. Iain as good n lemperance man as vou." " I hcr pardon, mv dear sir. I can't see it; ou are not only refusing to sign the pledge yourself, but you are telling others, and among them drink ing men, there is no use of signing a pledge. I have got three hundred to sien the pledge in a week, and you have kept one hundred trom sie-ning it. 1 1 if answer was: "I'll do as Fsce lit." He did. and refused to help in any way. He little knew that his constant opposition influenced his boy to still continue in the bad way. Six weeks ago this fath er gat tiered 'the harvest, from the seed he had sown four years ago. It was a full harvest of drunkenness, of ruin, of clime, and of shame. When the news was told the father that his oldest son. the dear one of his heart, was a gam bler, thief and a forger: that he had lied the State in disgrace; that he had left a stain on the good name of his family, it nearly broke his father's heart. This was not the hardest for him to bear. In a letter from his son, excusing his flight from the scene of his crime, he said: " Don't be too severe on me, father: for had you not opposed and denounced the TcmpcraiTce work and the signing of the pledge four years ago, your most unfortunate son would never have become the drunken outcast and felon Im is to-day. Your example for right at that time would have saved me; ynit ili'l nut fice it. So you have no one to thank but yourself for my damnation and yourshamc" How the truth of the fact."
