From the r.ew novel, The Old liameslead/'
by Mrs. Ann S. Stejiheus,
IL Th# barn was a vast rusiio bower
that mglii. One end was heaped 'vtlh
co«u ready for hu^ki^g the lioor w.a»
neatly swPpt, and overhead the .rafters
Were concealed by heavy ^arlatida of
whie pine golden maple lea.es, and
fed oak hratiehe*, that swepid iwnwaide
like a tent. Butternut leaves wreathed
•heir clu s'ering gold auiong the dak
green hemlock, w'h.Je sumach cooe»,wi
Uatce colored leaves, »hut through the
branchea. The rustic
ehandaltir was in full blaze, while n iw
and then a candle gleamed out 'through
ihe garlands, starring them lo the ro »f.
Still, lhe,iKumin*tion was neither brond
nor bold, but shed a delicious ftarilght
through the barn, that left much lo il«
ionuagiiiauon and concealed a thousand
ijlile sights 'of love making that \vi u!d
have been ventured on more slily had
ihe light beeu inorc broader.
But the candles were aided by a host
of sparkling eyes. The air was warm
and rich laughter and pleaaant nonsense
bandied from group to group amid the
rustling of corn-husks and the dash of
golden ears, as thby fcj.1 fiotn (he heap
that swelled larger aod larger with every
pausing minute.
Uncle Nathan's great arm chair h?J
been placed in ihe centre of the barn
just beneath ihe hoop ol lights. There
he sat ruddy and smiling, the very im
personation of a ripe harvest, with in
iron fire shovel fastened in eomi myste
rious manner across his feat, a large
split backet beneath his knees, working
tway with an energy that brought the
perspiration like rain to his forhead.*—
Up and down across the sharp edge of
the shovel, he drew the slender corn,
sending a shower of golden kernels into
the basket with every puM of his arm,
•lid stooped now and then wi'.h a well
pleaeed emile 10 even down thf a^m*s
it ro6e higher in his basket.
Our old friend Salina sat at i little dis
tance, wi her fiery tresses rolled in up
right pufTs over each temple, and her
great horn ednb towering therein like a
bditlctnenL A calico gown with very
gny colors rtrnggling over it, like honey
suckles aud buttercups on a hill side,
adorned ber lathy peison, having a
trim foot tisible upon a bundle of stalks
just within range of Uncle Nat's ee.—
Not that Salina intruded it, cr that Un
cle Nat bad any particular regard for
neatly clad feet, bnt your strong minded
woman has an instinct which is sure to
place the few charms apaisely distribu
ted to the class in conspicuous relief on
all occasions^
As Salir.a sat perched on the base of
,a ooru stalk, tearing away vigorously at
the husks, she cast an admiring glance
now and (hen on the old man as his head
rose and fell to the motion of his hands
but that glance was quickly withdrawn
with a defiani loss of the head, for Un
cle Nai'ii eye never once turned on ibe
trim foot with its calf-skin shoe, mueh
less on its owner, who begao to be a
liule exasperated, as tutidens of ber class

Joe bounded forward as he spoke, and
made a snatch at Salina wtih his grent
hands but with the quickness of a deer,
she sprang aside, leaving ber black silk
apron in his grasp. Another plunze,
and down came the ear of corn across
his head, rolling a ahower of red ker
nels -tmong his thick brown hair.
But Joe had secured his hold, and sf
ter another dash, that broke her ear of
corn in twain, Salina was left defsnceteas
with nothing but her two hands to fi ht
with but she plied these with vijjor,
leaving crimson marks upon her assail
ant's cheeks with every blow, till, in
self-defence he wss compelled to lessen
the distauce between her face, and his,
thus receiving her assault upon hi« shoul
To this day it it doub'ful if Joe Nash
really did gather the fruits of hi# victory.
If he did, no^atUfactory report was made
to the eager ring of listeners and Salina
stalked away from him with an air of
ineffable disdain,a9 if her defeat bad been
deprived of its juit reward.
