Chamberlin, she Being the mother of children three, Is fulfilling bar mission as fast as she can, According to Scripture as preached by man: She fits and sews The braids and bows In beautiful, elegant, splendid rows Around and over her children's clothrt. She teaches them all with patient care Their ABU and their evening prayer. With butter and bread they all are fed Six times a day, then sent to bed; While she patches the rents with a needle and thread, " And .thinks ot the cutis on the little head Of her darling, dear, delectable Fredr Mrs. John D. . Chamberlin, she (Although the mother of children three,) Sometimes with an intellectual fit Is taken, and when in the midst of it, Astounds us with her sense and wit. Poor little dears! We all have fears That her babies will soon be left to their tears; For a woman that knows twice two is four Is fit for a wife and mother no more. And ah! 'tis said That, having some red Trimming to sew on a frock for Fred, . She put on two rowB, and then two rows more, And counting them oyer made out there were four! ' Without asking her man who was down at the store. Ever since then It is feared by men That she will discover twice five are ten; And, should she do it, farewell, John D., To peace and comfort, and home for thee! And, children alL you may scream and squall, It is Kitty alone who will come at your calL But, though troubles fast on us may rain, It Is Mrs. John D. who will feel the most pain. Aud dark and dreary will be the day On which she shall learn as perchance she may That the dream of her youth has passed away Dark, desolate, Will be the fate Of the woman who learns be it soon or late That the story so framed her fancy to please Is false, and the moon is not made of green cheese. So, Mrs. John'D. Listen to me, In the name of your htisbaud and children three: If you would thrive, You must contrive To act as if twice two were five; Unless John D. Chamberlin, he Would rather you would think it were three. At the close of the day Should you chance to stray . Bcsido the river, and you should say; "What is that lovely thing, my dear, That hangs up in heaven so round and clear?" . Up to the skies Should he raise his eyes, And looking solemn, sublime and wise, Say: "That, my darling, that hangs above That lgt's see is a cheese, my loyel" "Is it?" you must reply. "'How nice? I wish both of us had a slice." Venture no other reply to make, For your happiness will then be at stake. Now, Mrs. John D. Chamberlin, be Sure that you take this advice from me, For the innocent sakes of your children three. MRS, JOHN D CHAMBERLIN. Selected Story. THE WOODEN WEDDING. "Of course Louison must come home for the wooden wedding," i cided the whole of the Grubners as- Isembled in full family conclave; the said family conclave being composed I of grandfather and grandmother Gmhnp.r. widow Gruhner and her two daurhters. Margot. whose fifth wedding day was to be celebrated, Und Gretchen. the lanffhter-lovinf?. youngest of the family. Besides whom were present WUhelm Kaus, Marcot's husband, and Hans, the I miller's son. "Yes. ves. Fraulein Lonison must cnitiR home ior tne weaainf?. oi course," echoed Hans, And then everybody laughed First of all, because no one in the world but Hans would have dreamed of dignifying little Louison Grubner with so imposing a title; and next, because poor Hans could never ao much as mention Louison s name, titlod or not. without causing a laush in the family circle. His admiration for that yocng person, freely ex I pressed on all occasions when the I object of his affections was not pres- Ient, had long been a standing joke in the village of Brushofen, and had earned for him the nickname of 'the bashful lover.' When they all laughed, Hans blushed a very furious and unbe coming red. "Never mind, never mind, mend Hans," said Wilhelm, clapping him on the shoulder, encouragingly. "I was young once, and timid too, and vet thou seest I took the bull by the horns at last: and 1 won d advise thpfi " But the advice was drowned in rWiia of lauffhterand exDostula tions. Margot, perhaps not unnat orally, objected to be compared to horned bull; and Wilhelm s timidity had not been so patent to the world, even in his young days, as to have made much impression upon it, it would seem. However, it was quite decided I that Louison was to come home. She was a bright dark-eved eirl I about seventeen, an orphan neice widow Gruhner, and bosom mend of cousin Gretchen. who was her junior by a few months. Louison lived, as a rule, with some distant relatives, who were farmers, a few I miles from Konigsberg: but her hoi i.lavs. few and far between, were al I J 1 ... ... .... wavssnent in tne iirunners mue I f . nottstrfl. which from her childhood had been considered her real home, and her visits to Brushofen were looked forward to by all the mem bers of the family with great pleas ure. it was now almost a year since she had been to see them, and it was quite impossible to allow the grand festivities of the wooden wedding take place without her. So after somewhat elaborate correspondence hetween mirlnw Hrnhnpr and Fran U . Liebe, the farmer's wife, whose right hand Louison was, a leave of a fort- night was obtained, and the day was fixed for the young girl's arrival Brushofen. Old Gruhner, accompanied by his oTanddaughter, Gretchen, went her at the coach. Trn weelra turn whnlA weeks. my Louison," cried Gretchen, grasp- of of reacneu ner ussening ears long De her fore the others are conscious of to a Louison had not known that an age ago ! "Here he comes ; I thought Get up or, no, no," in a whisper, at "stay there, and we will pretend thou na8t not come; and we will hear what he says." to "WeU, Hans, thou art a good ex meet ample of the old proverb, for Were but lUSt Speaking Of thee, ing her friend's hand as they walked together up the steep cliff path that led to the cottage. "Only think how delightful! And before the end of that time Hans Steiner will have asked thee to marry him and live in the pretty new cottage by the mill, and we shall never part with thee again." "Come, come," retorted Louison, "how dost thou know that by the time Hans Steiner please to say Wilt thorn" 1 shall please to say nayr But as she spoke a smile curled the corners of her pretty mouth, and her eyes sparkled, all hidden though they were by their long lashes. ."iVeli, well, we shall see, re turned Gretchen, wisely resoling not to press the matter, at least for the present And there were naturally many other subjects of conversation inter esting 'to the family party; or at least to th8 woman portion of it; many questions to ask and be an swered, many friends to be inquired for and discussed. A merry and talkative group were they, as they sat together that even ing at work, by the open window of the cottage kitchen. It seemed as though they never could get to the end of their absorbing topics births, marriages and deaths, changes of one kind or another, ru mors of what might be, or" might have been, flirtations, feuds; who does not know the thousand and one elements of village gossip? If the conversation flagged for a moment, it was sure to break out again di rectly with an "Oh! what .do you think?" or "Have you heard?" or "Do tell me." And then on the tongues would go again, as glibly as though not a word had been spoken for hours. "Oh! these women, these women," grumbled old Grandfather Gruhner. "Just listen to them click clack, click clacking, for all the world like a flock of geese. Set five women to gether, and some mischief will be brewing, one may be sure of that.' , And yet, in spite of all protests, it did not seem that the old man had really any very strong aversion him self to a little gossip, since he-hov ered about the group, pipe in mouth, with, some tenacity, instead of following his son-in-law. Wil- helm, to the garden, were he was busy digging potatoes. 1 he forthcoming festivities of the wooden wedding, and the presents which were expected or promised for the occasion, of course took up a considerable share of the conversa tion, and filled up the pauses of vil lage scandal. The custom of giving presents of a special kind on each hftu anniversary of a marriage orig inated in America, but has been largely adopted in Germany. On the fifth anniversary of the wedding day all the gifts must be of wood, on the tenth of tin, on the fifteenth of china, and so on until the silver, the twenty-fifth; the golden the fif tieth; and the diamond, the seldom reached seventy-fifth year of wed lock, is attained. There was natur ally a good deal of arrangement re quired, and some anxiety manifested by the notable young housewife that the offerings should be such as would give satisfaction alike to the donor and the recipients, that rarest of all cases in the giving and receiv ing of presents, l'ossibly Margot had never heard of that unhappy bridal pair whose thoughtful friends provided them with ten toast racks as wedding gifts. But "experience or learning ot some kind had evi dentiy maae ner wise, ana sne was resolved that no mistake of such kma should occur in her case, Though the gifts might be limited in kind, as well as in cost, there was no reason why they shquld not be of ueociijjuuua. at iraai, su u wouiu seem uom wie list sne coum- ed on ner nngers, more tnan twice over, for her cousin's benefit, and i miuucu umuus uwtu miug an arm-chair, a tea caddy, a carved necklace, a picture frame, three spoons, a brooch, a potato bowl, and a washing tub, "Ah, by the bye," she says, rather suddenly, alter one of thos dead Pauses wmcn occur even m tne most animaieu conversation, -Dy me Dye my husband tells me that Hans Steiner will come this evening to ask what his present to me shall be, I must decide. What dost thou think, grandmother, of a little brack et for the wall that would just hold the best Dutch china teapot?" "1 think that would be capital," responds tne old lady, Meanwhile a look of intelligence passes between the other women, Louison, who 13 sitting close by uretchen, works away very steadily and pretends not to see it "I doubt if Margot s present is the only reason for Hans' coming up to night," says Widow Gruhner, smil "JK "icce. -now snouid ne Know l was a nerer asKS poor louison, betraying - nerseu unconsciously, and tnen - lblusliing crimson to the very tips a earB There is a general laugh. At the same moment Louison drop3 the needle she is working with, and goes on her knees to the floor to find it Suddenly her heart beats tumultu ously. It seems to have flown her head, and to be knocking a very tatto on her brain; the sound of footstep, of a well-known voice, has " is not a very musical voice; uoes not ueiong io a very remaitauie or charming person.

After all, is it not every day love which makes every day happiness? "Canst thou not find that needle?" asks Gretchen; and then, looking suddenly up, "Why, only think, Louison. here is Hans!" As says Grandfather Gruhner, as so. we of it . no if the young man approaches and leans against the open window, pipe in mouth. Gretchen holds her work spread out so as to hide kneeling Louison. Hans bids them all 9v evening, but gazes round the Email room somewhat disconsolately, seeking for that which he finds not. Oh, for a glimpse of a small plump fig ure in a dark serge dress, a pair of oright dark eyes, and coral lips that part to show a row of pearly teeth ! sighs the young man sighs, and blindly curses fate, because, like many another foolish mortal, he can not see a yard before his face. "Ah, Hans, is it thou?" savs laughing, mischievous Gretchen. Toor Hans ! I am sorry for thee if it is to pay thy respcets to our fair cousin thou art come." "Whatfollv of Gretrhen. to hfi sure?' grumbles Margot .under her breath. "She will put present quite out of his stupid head, and we all know that is what he has really come about." She moves quickly .from her seat and whispers to her mother. An idea has struck her that after all too smaller brackets, one for each side of the chimaey-piece, would be better than one. "Dost think it would be too much to ask for?" she inquires of her mother. But the good widow is so much amused with the small domestic comedy going on before her that she can scarcely pay due and proper at tention to the weighty matter of the bracket. As for Hans, if Margot and hor wooden wedding had ever been very prominent matters of interest in his head, it is quite clear of them now. At the present moment one idea alone possesses the young lover. "How why what dost thou mean?" he stammers. "Is not Frau leri I mean she is she not com ing?" Louison gives Gretchen's &re3 a little tremulous pulL "2io, indeed, she is not,- poor Hans." The' smile fades suddenly away from the young man's face. Gretchen puts on a very long face too, and shakes her head dismally. "What is it, Gretchenr Don't keep me in suspense. Has' anything happened to heri t Is she ulr Is she what's the good of making mysteries? Everybody knows how love her, cries Hans, gaming sud den courage. " "Yes, everybody except Louison herself," says Gretchen. Another tug at the dress an imploring tug this time. Louison feels her otf,. o I OIUUA 1 tlOn becoming extremely embarrass;! mg. Uut Uretclien s tongue is Tint- r.rat.. .on'o tnnmia a sftl so easily stopped. The very spirit of mischief seems to have taken possession of her. "Everybody ex cept Louison herself," she repeats.

The Woman of Schorndorf. these words, addressed to her nus tellierenca h d himaelf : I will kill you with I I I . In the Southwestern portion of Germany is the village of Schorndorf. Although now little more than a mere postal station, it was formerly one of the strongest fortified towns of Northren Swabia, and the pride of the beautiful valley of the Eems. After the treaty of Westphalia, when the bishoprics of MeU Tul, and Verdun were ceded to Fraace, the idea entered into the French mind to search carefully through the public records for the names of -all towns and cities which during any former period had been the prop erty of either of the three bishoprics, and to demand them from Germany as a portion of the rightful spoils. Although this preposterous demand failed to be presented in its original snape, it led to a series or aggres sions which finally culminated in that devastation of the Pais in 163S and -1639 by the French armies under the directions of Monscals and Me las. Mannheim, Bastaat, Baden, Heid elberg, and many other places were already in ruins, and the French forces were rapidly advancing toward the boundaries of Swabia, their thirst for robbery and destruction inceras ing with every step. The Government of Wurtemburg, in the hope of saving Stuttgart deliv- -ered all the towns of Northern Swa bia into the enemy a hands, and the only fortification which had not been destroyed by the French troops was that of Schorndorf, to which the peo ple looked as to a last hope. The French commander eat con fidently in his camp at Esslingen, laying plans for his winter quarters in Wurtemburg. The Royal Com missioners had already left Stuttgart to give orders to Schorndorf to fling open its gated to the invading host, . and the French "gave little heed to this last stronghold of the Wurtem burg Government, so sure were they of its speedy surrender. But exactly at this point was the invading army to meet its check; for .within the walls of Schorndorf was a determia en man, and, what was still more im portant a determined woman. The man was the commander of the fortifications, Peter Krummhaar. Although he had received the royal command to make a slight show of resistance, and then surrender the city, he refused to obey.- At last a special messenger ap- peard from. Stuttgart, stating that the French commander had given orders to burn the Royal residence and take immediate possesion of the city, unless Schorndorf complied with the demand made upon it cut, in spite of all demands and orders, . Krummhaar remained firm. He had trengthened his forces by drawing in large numbers of patriotic vil lagers from the surrounding country, and was determined to hold out un til the Imperial army arrived. But treachery and cowardice were so rampant in the highest places that Krummhaar found his strength growing less and less. At lengtu he summoned a meeting in me town hall of all the officials and leading men to consult upon the possibility of a continued defense. Frau Kunkelin, the wife ot the mayor of the city, was a tall woman of about hity years, wnoso wora waa law with all the women of Schorn dorf. Of a firm, upright character, she had made herself universally be loved and respected. She suspected that the voice of the Oity tamers WOuld be for surrender, and, secretly following them to the council halL she kid herself-toKstenT" As sne . had feared, the patriotic determina tion of Peter Krummhaar was over ruled, and the city doomed to fall like its sisters. Frau Kunkelin rushed wildly from the halL Sending . messengers through the town, she summoned oji the women to assemble before,her armed with whatever they could lay hands on. "We have not laid up riches for these rascaly Frenchmen to live and grow fat on," said she "and Stuttgart will see tnat ocnorn dorf will not be humbled in the dust, like Tubingen and Asberg." An army of women was soon as sembled. Armed with every con ceivable weapon, from a broomstick to a sword, they presented a very strange appearance. Then with Frau Kunkelin at tneir neaa, uiey marched to the Town Hall, and hrota ! nr)0ri the solemn conclave f th husbands.

Mean while, Peter Krummhaar was assist ing the women in every way. Every moment wa3 a step wwara saivauou, for the Imperial army was rapidly approaching. The moral effect, too, . of this patriotic uprising of the wo men was immense,- and the whole country, which had been cowed down with abject terror, rose with one accord to sve the fatnerianu. The heroine of" Schorndorf, Frau Kunkerlin, lived many years after the uprising ol the T7omen took place, and it is said, related the his tory to a goodly number of grand- I""". o-'J children and great grandenuoren.
