So it was decided to soil the calves rtd buy tho lumber for an addition to tlio shnnly, and tho next day John Tiir eons took them over to Mr. Meeker and got the money for theru. On ihn way home ho stopped fit an other neighbor's and horrowud a heavy wagon, and the day following 8t irt d to town bright and early with til" letter to Krastus udl carefully concealed1 in his inside pocket. "Het that'll fetch him home on a run," he mused as he dropped it into the olliee at the landing; .pint in t i mo to have it pet inlo the nmiFbag a it was being got; ready for tho down boat, "lie 11 be here "in a week ef that letter goes straight, cr else ho aiu't a-! good at takin' a hint as I think he is."

The letter was tbn e days in reaching its destination, and then lay in the posl-o'lieo several days more before being c.illud for. Kr.utus had no correspondents other than the members of Mr. Parsons' family; and as thero had been little that was pleasant to write about on oither side, letters had not been frequent be tween them of late, and the young man seldom went to the post-ollice. One day as he was working with several of hi s neighbors upon a d tch which was. to be the means of irrigating their claims, another neighbor, who had been to town, rode up and, stop ping h's horse, called out: "Here. Hemmingway; here's a letter for you." Krnstus was in his shirt sleeve3 in the ditch, shoveling, and the horseman leaned from his saddle and handed him the letter. "If that's from your girl, she don't write a very piuty hand," he said, with a wink at the other ditchers, who had slopped work and stood leaning on thuir spades. . Glancing at the. superscription, Eras tus Eaw that it was in a strange hand. The post mark, however, proclaimed it to be from Fhippsburg, and his lirst thought was that something lenible had again happened to Unc'e John and his family that they were all dead, may be, and a stranger had written to inform him. ". Hastily tearing off the envoldpc; he looked at the signature and saw tho name, "John Parsons," iu still", awk ward letters, at tho bottom of the pngo, and it Hashed over him that Lucy win married and that I'ticle John had writ ten to tell him of it because no c-no else liked to do so, and tho blood rushed to his heart, which beat eo that it seemed his companions must hear it. But no; the letter said: "Lucy and her mother had gone to town." Then she was not married yet The blood began to return ,to Us - proper channels. -r ..... .

What, a b-nihlo loistukn thero had 1 ei n. What a wrotoh ho was for not having ppoken np when Annulary first came courting Lucy, and so have saved all this Buttering. ' - How tender hm h-irt p?er, thinking of her who hud sufferd so who must bavo sull'ered so terribly all this tlm. Such were the thoughts thnt passed through tho young man's mind as he walked rapidly towards his boarding place. Put what if Uncle JoUu was mis taken? He was half-way to tho house when this Ihoueht caine : to him, and ho stopped and stood perfectly still for soim? seconds, but not stiller thau his heart socniod to have become. "At any rate I'll know the truth," he said aloud, and tlien mentally: "I played the coward one., I'll not do it a?ain. Undo John certainly meant nie to understand that Lucy loved mo well enough to be my wife, and 1 would bo a craven indeed not to ask herself now." Going directly to the shed where the roan horse stood, he groomed him carefully, theu went to tho house and to the low room uji-stairs whore ho slept. Here he bathed and changed into his l est suit, being careful to see that tho few dollars in money which he pos sessed were iu his pocket-book and in his pocket. Meautimo Mr. Johnson had left the ditch and rono to the little patch of ground n quarter of a mile away, which his wife cultivated as a gardcu, where he knew her lo be at work. When told '.hat Kra.lus was going on a viait lo his old homo and would alnrt at once, Mrs. Johnson hurried to the house find 1 egnn preparing a 'meal be fore he -dinnld go. Neil her of them asked the young ilian any questions as to the cause of his sud den going, but both guessed that it was in i-omo way connected with a love atl'air and were anxiou; to assist him in every way possible. Mr. John ou ottered to loan him all the money ho had. w hich was less than two dollars, and Mrs. Johnson Muttered around, trying to get something a little extra lor him to eat, helping him with his necktie, and offer ing to do a iloxcn other things as if he had suddenly become a child, or w hat appeared more likely was going to see his sweetheart, if not. indeed, to get married. And all the timo - he was t ly ing not to tay anything that would show how vory anxious she was to have him conlide in hr, yet hoping greatly that he would do so. Krastus, in the (ir-t Hu h of his new found joy. was only re,- trained from showing Mr. Parsons' letter and making a clean breast of Ihe w hole affair by a lingering tear that Uncle John might be nii-takcn. It was really very hard for him lo keep from telling. Mr. and Mrs. Jehu son were the beat friends he had hern at tho Slough, and ho know they thought a srood deal of him, and he wanted to tell them what a lovely girl Lucy was, but could not quite bring himself to do so even when Mrs. Joliu sou remarked, as sho fixed his necktie, that slio "supposed he would aeon have some one else to do it for him now." and so he left them wholly in doubt, and mounting tho roan, rode away in the direction of tho foot-hills of the Sierras. He curbed his own impatience and the desire of the spirited roan at the start, well knowing lhat time would be lost and not gained by fast riding for tho first hour or two. The sun had long since set, when, having put thirty-rive miles between himself and his slai'ling-placo, lie dis mounted, tethered his animal In a spot of wild oats a little oil' the road, rubbed him down with dry leaves and grass, and rolling himself in a blauket lay dow u upon the ground. If his body was wrary , he was not aware of it, for his heart wa.s tilled with the sweetest hopes; and what sus tains the physical powers like hope? AS he lay looking up at the stars, and watching the full moon .coming slowly up from behind the dkstaut hills aDd climbing a sky that had not known a, cloud for w eeks and weeks, he recalled every incident of his life from the time when Mr. and Mrs. Parsons had taken him, a poor, outqast boy, to their homo and their hearts. - ' He thought upon every act of" Lucy's which appeared iu any degree to .indi cate hei feelings toward hipuelf, and tried to place one-ag)dnsl, another, th.j ,up favol.al lo against , th favorable, in such a way as to enable him to strike a balance and ' determine just what his '.chances were. , Put jn this he was con scious of failing, for thero were many litils Instancesacts or words the meaning of which lio was utterly un able to determine, whic he yet felt cer ta'ni Iqid ji ,10'Wiiing if onij he knew .iipiiii.n hjc4f.ii Ip of his 2o?e liooount to place them. Besides, it was so very pleasant to fancy that tho favorable ones outnumbered tho others, if indeed there were any other, lhat he could not avoid !'oing off into blissful w aking dreams of the future, when he should have got his place at tho Slough irri ga'ed, and set in fruits, and have a cot tage built. He would have a cottage just like the one in the foot-hills, where ihey had all spent so many , pleasant days, ho thought; tho cottage now abandoned and j oing to decay. Lucy would be by his sid'i alw ays, and Uncle Jehu and Aunt Martha should bring Johnny and live willi them, their honored aud bo loved guo.st, and all the misunder standings and sulf'eriug of tho past should be forgotten. . And thus he lay and drew bright pict ures of sweet days to conio, uutd from waking dreams he passed to dreams w hich came iu sleep, but Ihey did not greatly, dill'cr froui ouch other; the riuisio aud the words wore just tin; Baiue-rwere love and Lucy; lovo aud Lucy. - Although tho snn was not yet up, there was 140 dew upon his. blanket or iu li S hair wh.;n he arok) iu tho morn ing; for dow seldom falls iu this por tion of California during tho dry season. ' -Tho roan' horse had risen from h's b,'d In the tall oats, ami had stretched hiqiseU aud bcun again to eat of tho rich herbage. Krastns led him to drink at ft creek which they had crossed bnt a little way back tho night before, again rubbed him ; down, ,Hnd leaving hiu', eating, walked to a .rancher's shanty, a quarter f a mile i-nway, In ;u:t of his own breakfast. ' He foil hi the family just" sitting down, to their Oiva uiuaf, yxplaincd to them -.that ho . had ridden, late the ni-jht before and had' camped out, end was given a cordial invitation to ''draw :t chair' up tq hi) table and help hii'i .elf," which hif v;ry promptly did. , Preak f.iut oaleu, ho ollored lo pay, but was refund; gavo thanks instead of money,' and bmryin g back to the place where ho had ' left his ' horse, fastened h's bluukct tj hU saddle, ' placed bulh upon tho roan, ani mount ing, resumed bin join ney. Ju t before noon he stopped at a liltlelown, put up at thn hotel, fed nnd rubbed down Ids steed, got h own dinner; and did not mount rgain until the greatest heat of tho day win over. Then ho pushed on at a rapid nice unt l an hour aftvr sunset, when 10 agajn tethered his horse and slejit upon ttie ground, as he had done the night before. j he day following was a repetition of the one which preceded it, but its chwe found hini well up in the foot hills, and he put up at. the coltjige of a rancher, whh whom ho had stayed over night when on his way to the Slough tlio year before. In the morning he aro e with one thought throbbing in brain and heart, "to-night I shall seo her; to-night I shall know my fate. " He fed and groomed his horse ill usual, but cr.idil scarcely wait for breakfast, which was not yet prepared w hen he returned from the stable. He had eaten a cold lunch for supper, lait his impatience conquered all desire for food. He was counting tho hours now, and the moments would drag them sehesso until he was in the saddle again. Mather than appear discourteous or strange, ho waited f- r tho morning meal to be prepared, but wsus oil almost before his host had arisen from the ta ble. lie had ridden seventy-live miles the day before, nnd had feared the roan might feel a little slid" and sere at start ing, but when he saw him come out of the stable witii head up, apparently as anxious as himself to be otV, this fear vanished, and he determined to push through the remaining forty miles w'n li mit halting. Put he found the roads not so good as he had anticipated. He was now in a part of the foot-hills with which he was unacquainted, for he 110 longer followed the road over which he came tho year b -fore, but struck across the count rv by a route which left the old home oil' to the left, and threw him further up towards the mountains, and when noon came ho was still, from the best information ho could get, fully iifleen miles from John Parsons' shinty, and compassion for bin horse induced him to stop at a ranch- er's for feed and rest; so that with this delay and tho trouble which he expe r'emi d in learning exactly where tin shanty was, even whn within a few miles of il, the afternoon was well nie;li worn a v. ay when he reached the point where tuo by-road which led to it turned oil' from tho main track; an l even then he was not certain of this be ing the place. He had stopped his horse and was debuting w ith himself whether to turn otV or follow the main road vet further. when ho saw coming around the spur of the mountain, and into the road over which he had just passed, her tor love of whom he had come, and the siht sent all the blood in his body .-urging to his heart, and for tiie moment ho could neither have spoken nor moved. Evidently Lucy had not seen him pass, and was not now aware of his presence. She I. ad gono to find the cows and drive them home to.be milked, and was following along behind them as they laxity moved homeward. She was dressed as Krastus had seen her oftenest in tho olden time, iu a light print dress and sun-bonnet, hi her hand sho carried a little crooked stick, which sho had picked' up to drivo the cows with, but was paying very lit tle attention to them. Instead she was gainu; off upon tho hills which stretched away and away, one above another, until they became snow capped peaks lhat in tho liglit of tho falling sun looked liko amethysts set into the cerulean blue of tho heavens. Had not the cows paused at sight of (ho man and horse standing in their path sha might have reached his side before becoming aware of his presence, but when tho cows stopped and stood with their jrrcat eyes staring with the least bit of surprise at what was not a very oorumon sifrht to them in their mountain pastures, she raised her stick and bid them iro-lonir. " Then seeing for tho lirst time a gentleman standing by the roadside holding his horse by Die bridle, she blushed a littlo beneath her sun-bonnet, and dropping her eyes, followod closely afier the cows, which had again laz-ily taken up their line of march. Tlio blush which suffused her cheeks was not, however, owing to her having recognized the horseman, for she had not done to. She hail only glanced at him and then dropped her eyes with a feeling of embarrassment, for she sel dom met geutieiueii now, and however much poelri may sing the charms of milkmaids in calico dresses, they will never be able to conviuco any member of the sex lhat they look their best in lhat role, any more than can bo taken from thoiu their womanly desire to ap pear well in tho eyes of tho opposite sex, even though ho be an entire stranger, as she suppo-ed this ono to bo who stood waiting for her approach, presumably that he miirlit inquire the way to some neigboring rancher's shanty, or possibly if her parents would entertain him for tho night. When within a few paces she raised her eyes aud turned her luce towards him. As she did so he spoke her name and took a step tow aids her. 'Lucy!'. She' stopped suddenly and tho littlo crooked stick fell to the ground while both hand-i went to her face pushing back the sun-bonnet. "Lucy, don't you know me? I've conio all the way back to see you; started tho moment 1 got your father's let that is the moment I learned you were not go ing to marry Mr. Aunelsey. I lovo you, Lucy love you better than any body or any thing iu all tiie woild. have ulwaH loved )OU corsiiceo were children together, aud 1 rant you to bo my wife." And sho only snid: "Oh! 'htvs!'' and put her hands to her f .eo and b'-gau lo cry. "Lucy, Lucy, cau't you lovo me?" pleaded her lover. "I know I am not rich like us was, but 1 11 love you al ways, love you belter, 't socm- to me, than nnvbody else csu love you. Can't you love me, Lucy?" Sho put out ono little sunburned baud and laid it on his arm. Willi the other she continued lo hide, her face. "Oh. 'Kits." sho sobbed. "I--I do lovwyou: I always d did, but 1 thought father1 wa-wan wanted me to marry him, and that you loved Julia Kiinis, and theu I cbdu't care. .Oh, 'Pas, Piu so glad you've come." Aud she buried her faoo on his shoulder.

PARTINGTON AT HOME. B. P. Shillaber, the Aged Humorist, as He is Seen at Chelsea. Mass 1 J j I "I never call a man old unlil he gels (o be an octagon or a centurion," said It. P. Shillaher (Mrs. Partington) to a friend who was congratulating him up on having that day reached the good age of seventy. "Unless it should hi foreordained be forehand iu advance," plav fully rejoined his friend, "that he should survive his factories and become idiomatic before tba time." The genial humorist was seated in his favorite room, which in I hcse later years has coulined him for months at a lime. Put few of Irs 111 any calh-rs would dream of this fact. The ev er hearty welcome which they receive and the absence of any personal complaining certainly do not hint of tiie scvetii pain which is a frequent visitor. Only the crutch in the corner slieee.ts it. There looked mil from Ihe paint ing on Ihe wall Ihe ro guish face of Ike, "the prodigal of vir tue;" the very same Ike who caused Mrs. Partington to wonder why he "didn't get a medal, for certainly a more meddlesome boy she never knew," although, at the same time, he dared 'lo hope that with "judicial training he might yet become a Useful membrane of society." On Ihe shelf below the painting was Sidney Morse's line statuette of the humorist. The writing desk, which had done him faithful service for fully twenty-live years, stood opposite. Over the writing-desk, on a book shelf, were what l.e called his three cs-ent'als a large Pohglot I'.ihle, which had an interesting family history, a Shakspeare and a Webster's IMetion arv. i'liere was a twinkle in his eve when he remarked that through the-e he showed his lo alty to the "angular Saoiis." I'poii being asked where his own books were, ho naively replied that he "kept them in anpther room out of sight." Speakiifg of these, it is pleas ant to know that the lirst copy of each one of t hriii he inscribed lo the one who for forty-live years was a true and loving helpmeet, whom death claimed son..- two years since, leaving hini alone but for the bright, helpful pres ence of au unmarried daughter, who has now the sole charge of his hou.-e. and -s a daily elixir which any man might envy. 1 . .i!oi',unately, Mr. Shillaher is no! as "rich as Creosote" and never has been. He has longed "to have a villa n iu the country and become an amatory farmer under the canister of heaven." Hut he has surely illustrated, iu his life and in his works, a quality of mind which not .oven ( 'iM-siis' money could buy, (hat "it i- better !o speak parcgoricall y of a person than to be ail the time dinging epitaphs at him." ' In the eoniinemeijt which is now more or less his he is ever interested in the outsid world.. His intere-t in poli- t.es is as nvsii as when lie was a young man, before he "inherited the' gout from his wife's ancestors." He is rooted and grounded in the principle of a true Democracy. The Boston I'ust, which lirst introduced him as Mrs. Par tington, is still a welcome daily visitor. Put in talking with hini on political matters no ono can help thinking of poor Paul, Ihe corporal of the Bloody 7th. "who was inclined to polities, but wasn't a propergander nor an oily archist, nor an averitsonist, nor a demi god; all he wanted was an exercise of of li s sufferings and the use of his elect ive French eyes." Mr. Shillaher' s interest in his friends is frequently show n iu the apt impromp tus which unexpectedly greet them. As an instance, with a copy of Brown ing's "Agamemnon and Dramatic Idyls," which, one Christmas time, he sent as a pu-scnt, he wrote on tho fly leaf: 'A Merrv rjiristniiis. T send with this, "I'llouMli it seems aliHiinl.tv eioWLiuiif To wish tor eiieli i iih! ore hliss (H er the works nt' Itrovvie-i. The many rhymes of his, which have added pleasure to festive occasions, are growing fewer and fewer, and in his home iu Chelsea his thoughts turn oftener than formerly lo the unknown country. As he says himself, he is now living on borrowed time. tVie'm (Mats.) Cor. I'liihulcljthiii l'iss. j RARE COINS. I Artlelei AYIiieh nro Sun Souictiiiiea to lie Worth More Than Tin ir Nomluul Value.
