to defsat the proposed plan. But; the veiy
noit eveuing bin daughters were visited
by their friends the daughters of Mr.

was gained that their girls should ftccom

to 'stny nil Bummer if you choose said the
mother, 'but I shall expect to see you back
in a week.' -
A merry travelling parly the seven
girls made, a pleasant journey was :heirs j

Armstrong took Ada Ashton with them,
while Grace and Florence Armstrong and
J ulin and Carrie Ashton boarded togeth

by the honest farmers, and eat with keen
relish of the good supper provided for

had not folt so hungry for a year.
'We will put a different color on those
pale cheeks, my liitlo dears,' said the
pleasant Mrs. Siono, the wife of the farm
er where Julia and Carrie were to board.
The girls fell in love With Mrs. Stone at
first sight. She had the sweetest, most
genial face m tho -world, hor voice was as
pleaeant as her countenance. Ah, she
wns a charming and admirable woman.
No wonder that the girls loved her as
soon as thdy saw her.
'I am sure you are Yry good, ma'am;
arid we shall be happier here ihitn we ever

horizon and then taking a good Scamper

gry ns bears, to Ihe hotiso. Mr. Stone
was there before them, and the tabid was
spread with i most inviting brexkfast.
after doing juatico Mrs. Stone's bounte
ous fare, the girls ran to feed the poultry
and to hunt for the eggs. This was new
work for the Ashton girls, but it delight
ed them greatly. They were juined by
tile other members cf the party, aud had
j a regular jumping rnatch in town. Then
they all went into the kituliefi, and picked
over dried fruit and greens for dinner.
At twelve o'elock they p'arted, and after
diurier the Ashtons were so tired out that
thuy were glad to go to bed. - Bui every
day they grew heartier and stronger, and
wilder sldo, and befure they had been a
mouth in the country, they wore, as Adda
said, "as good as new."
Rainy days they epsnt in writing to
their parents, or in helping the larmel's
wives make rag carpet or mats. . Time
never hung heavy on their bauds. There
were plenty of boots, magazines, and pa
pers to read; and the boya, who were
nearly men, were always ready for story
tolling and riddles. Those boya were
fine fellows, and very agreeable coirrpa'rt'-
ions, but it is no t worth while to say muoh
about that. There was a 'boy' at college

not sorry, but it ien't worth while to say

Miller was the name of the family
where the other three culs boarded,'
There were sevoiaV'bhpye there too."
'Well, Armstrong,' said Mr. Ashton to
bis friend, on finding himself, again sett
ed beside bim in a down-town cr, 'my
young ones are so in love with the coun
try that I can't get them home. ' Carrie
aotnally pleads; for permission to livt with !

'biie is, Ashton. A more agreeable per

yet. Let them remain until Ootober.
'Oh, I oan't get along any longer with
out them; the house is like a tomb, end I
must have tbem baok next week.'
Bat the girls accustomed to hare tbeir
own way, flatly refused to come unless
their parent both went for them. 'We
went you to know theit best of people,
especially Mrs, Stone,' they wrote; and
we want you to get at least ono good long
smell of the del'otous air ofthis place.'
Mr. and Mrs. Ashton complied with
the desire of their children, and one day
at snnfet, they stood at iho gate of farmer
Stone's commodious house.
Who were the rosy girls that sprang
to meot them? surely not their thin deli
cate daughters.
'Oh! father, oh! mother we are so
gladl Come in! come ip! Mis. Stone!
Mrs. Stone!, here is father and mother!'
cried tho girls, and then Grace and Julia
rushed into the porch; and instantly re
turned dragging in the blushing and flut
tered looking lady of the ,hbuse.
She had never appeared more charming
in her life than she did then, with his
children olinging about her, and contend
ing with each Other who should say the
most in ber praise. So thought Mr.
Ashton as he looked upon "Mary," his
sweetheart of tbe olden time, and knew
ber at the first glance.
"And is it so?" ha said, as he took her
plump hand and( presed it warmly. Ma
ry Understood him. but no one else did.
All the girls were tbere, and there was
no hearing ones own ears. - Presently
Mr. Stope cleared them all out to allow
Mr. aud Mrs. Ashton to take their
per in peace.
'My girls are recreated; and I am sure
they owe muoh of their fine condition of
health and spirits to your motherly care.
My dear Mrs. Stone how shall we ever
thank you.'
'Uy sending them to me every summer,

her 'beloved foster motiier,'.as she called
Mrs. Stone. In saying so she tried to find
comfort for tho present part'nu;.
We shall all be back next summor,'
said all the girls; and Ada and Julia kept
their word, but Carrie forgot her prom

Summer after summer the two sisters came
to reside, during several months, with
Mrs. S'one, and at last Ada returned to
the city no more,, except as a visitor, for
one of those "boys" had prevailed on. her
to remain and take upon herself the care

Singing is a beautiful exeicise. Tha
lungs need expansion to devolou them
and make them strong, just as much aa
the leg or arm. It would be well for ine
the babe to lie in the cradle till he should
become a man. Exeroie gives health
snd strength as Wei
to the vocal organs
as to the hands and feet.
Singing improves the voice. Every one
knows how mnoh is giio d by poae-s.,

er in a public speaker or in conversation
and reading and ordinary oocasions
Singing, more than speaking or tend ng,1
reading, improves the voice; gives it great
er varie.iy of module ion. Then lei, all.

it ia as easy as it ia to leva to talk, if as
