"It's the last straw that breaks the unel's back," said Lucy, bursting in tears.

Mr, Bellenden was justly. proud of s dairy. Not a-chance guest came to the >nse but was invited down to see it; >t a housekeeper in the neighborhood it secretly envied its many conven nces and exquisite neatness. "A nd it isn't the dairy alone,'" tri iphantly remarked Seth Bellenden. Ld you may go through the house :m garret to cellar, and you'll never d a speck of dust. There never is such a housekeeper as-my wife." Mrs. Biellenden wac young, .too arcely three and twenty.

Mrs. Bellenden's fume went abroai among the Dorcases of the neig hood in the matter of butter a cheese; she took the prizes in domestic departments of all the ricultural fairs, and the adj housewives took no trouble to things. that they could borrow of Belletn, 'just as well as under .the blighting infience f-a horrible sick headache, was endea oring to strain three or four gallons of milk into the shining pans, the news arrived that Uncle Paul was coming to the farm. "Another guest!". said Lucy, de. spairingly. And then she uttered the proverb that heads our sketch. ."Oh, it's only Uncle Paul !" said 'Mr.- Bellenden. "Don't fret, Lutie ! lie's the most peaceable old gentle. nan in the' world. He'll make no more trouble than a cricket. John's wife thought she couldn't have. him because she has no girl just now-" "Neither have I !" said Lucy, re belliously. -'And Sarah Eliza don't like com pany." "And I am supposed to be fond of it !" observed Lucy, bitterly. "And Reuben's girls don't want old folks staying there. It's too much trouble, they say," added Seth. Lucy bit her lips to keep back the words she might have said, instead : -Where is he to sleep?

But she was magnanimo s and held her.,peace. "Oh,.you can find some place for him," said her husband, lightly. There is that litt:e room at the end of the hall where.the spinning wheel "But it isn't furnished:" pleaded Lucy. - 'You can easily -sew. a carpet to gether out of .those oid pieces fror the Belfords room;. and, it's no trou ble tio put up a muslin curtain to- the window and lift ia a cot bed, There are a plenty of good sweet husks in the corn house, and. you.*can just tack a mattress together. and whitewash the'oeiling, and-'' "Whgde that; l3eniah?
