Mr. Job Dueutiberry stopped on lio.-ud thft train bound lor Boston one inorniii'T, fi'cliiigu kind ot (liiecr sensation at the pit of his stomach. H( eniiclndeil. ! llto limn lu fi,-t became awaro ol" it, that it was oc casioned by cat in ; too licarty a bicukfnst in too short a time. Liter, lie came to a dillorent conclusion about it. He was jr'" "down to Uostoif to visit liis brotliet- Joseph, and stav "til! after the Fourth." The car was pretty full, but he succeeded in finding an unoccupied seal at last, and sat down to look about him. IJc had hardly betin to look, however, when another traveler entered the car in search of a scat. She was an old maid, Job knew, the moment he saw her. There are certain feigns which can never be mistaken in t lie class of single damsels to which she belong ed, that class being the primly perpendicular one, nearly all angles aim very little curves, and Job had sc'Jii too many of them to be mis taken, lie couldn't say that lie liked old maids, and yet, being an old bachelor, he felt a sympathy tor their single condition which made his heart tender toward thein. She looked sharply about her iu eearrh ol a seal. As it happened, Job's was the only one in which there were not two. "I'd like the privilege scttin' with you,'' said she, fixing her eagle eye on Job's, in a way that seemed to dare him to refuse. 'Shall be delighted to have you." answereii Jon with alnuiity, jump ing up Hint she might have the place next to the window. "A beautiful day, ma'am." Lovely," answered his compan ion, iu a voice that seemed to come from down cellar, as she proceeded to arrange her baskets and bundles about her teet. "Yes, sir, a lovely day. 1 told Almiry she'.s my broth er John's wife I told her it was goi' to be jest n splendid dav for trav'lin'." A light broke in upon Job's mind. John and Almiry, he felt sure, were Mr. and Mrs. Stebbins. He had heard that Mr. Stehbins had a sis ter from Vermont viMting him. "I conclude you're Mr. Stebbius' sister, ma'am," said Job, anxious to find out if he were right. Me had been advised ip go over and see the lady, but somehow he never could make up his mind to. "I be," she answered : "my name's C...I.I Iir. .. " - - - ousan oieuoins. nat S vourii, if 1 ... ' may oe so inquisitive.'"7 "Duseuberry Job Dusenbcrry," he replied, with a bow. He was naturally very genteel in his in stincts. 'Is that so?'' exclaimed Miss Stebbius, casting a side-long glance at Job. and trying her best to blu-.li. "Aliriiry'fi been heclonV mc about you ever since Iv'c been there." "1 want to know I" cried Job. He couldn't think of anything else to say, and it seemed as if she must expect him to say something. " Yes, an' John, too," went ou Miss Stcbbins. "But, you know, folks will joke, an' they'io alius a talkin'to me about the men, but I don't mind it ciiny. I'm irlad to rk acquainted with von, for I ain't much used to trav'lin', an' I like to bev some one I can look to ler per fection, if it's needed." Job mentally concluded that she was more capable of protecting her self than he was of protecting her. But he said ho should be happy to do what he could for her. "Air you any relation to the Du senbcrry fani'ly liviu' uigh Piitnev ?'' asked Miss Stebbius. 'No, I don't think I be," answered Job ; "never heard I bad any rela tion there." "Mr. Duscnberry's deacon in the Baptist church, an' a real nice man, I alius thought," went on Miss Steb bius "Seems to mc ho favors you in complexion some. He's a sm'art lookiu' man, an' I should ha' said you was a connexion. Air you goin' to Boston?" "I be." answered Job; "thought I'd go down an' stay till after the Fourth." "So he I," answered Miss Steb bins. "I've got some tradin' to do, an' it pays to do it where you can look about an' choose. Solomon Green keeps store up to Putney, an' he does charge the most onaccount able prices; now this alpacy how much should you s'posc I'd ought to have give a yard for it, Mr. Dusen berry ?" Job frankly acknowledged his ignorance of such matters. "Wall, sir," said Miss Stebbius, in a tone which seemed to imply that she didn't suppose he'd believe her, but it was true as gospel, neverthe less; "wall sir, he charged me forty two cents a' a ha'f a yard, an'' I couldn't get it a cent less. lie asked forty-live, but I beat him down two cents an'a-half, an' Mrs. Pringle sho's tho minister's wife she got one jest like it to Albany for thirty seven cents I If that ain't outra geous, I'd like to what is!" "It's scand'lotis, ma'am." said Job, who began to" admire her evident business tact; "simply scand'lous, nm'nni t" "You're riirht," said Miss Steb bius, "an' I told Almiry, bein's I'd never been to Boston, I was goin' down, an' I'd see if Solomon Gred'd got rich out o' cheatin' me." But now Job was iu love with her that is, he felt that she would make him a good housekeeper, which stood for the sutno'thing iu his mind as wife, and ho wondered if he couldn't mnnagc to secure her. He'd been wanting a wife for twenty years. He had had chances, but, like the foolish man he was, ho had let them all slip. Now he consid ered that the curious feeling he had experienced that morning was a presentiment of he didn't exactly know what, but it evidently hail something to do with Miss Stebbius. He got out at a small station and bought some hied chicken and apple pie, and brought them in as -a votive ollerim, sentimentally speaking, to the lady ol his bosom's allection. She accepted them with a smile that made him happy for a week after, every time ho remembered. Once he dreamed about that smile, and thought it sunrise, and got up and dressed him-elf before be fairiy waked up. When ho did come to his senses he found it was half-past 1, and went back to bed wondering if all men feel as he did when thev're iu love. The tn.in started, and. just as Miss Stcbbins was trying to swallow a small chicken-bone, and making a very wry lace over it, the cars gave an awlul leap, and then none of them knew very much about what happened for the next few minutes. When Job came to himself heAvas sitting in a shallow puddle of water, and the first thought which came, to iiiiu "ii-j umi oe nau turned into a big bull-lrog. But, looking about him, in a bewildered way, for a so lution of the mystery, he stw Miss Stebbius sitting on a floating por tion ol a wrecked car farther out in the pond, dripping like Undine, if not as agreeable to look at. "Be you hurt, Mr. Duseuberry ?" she asked, as she discovered him. "Xo, I don't think I be," answer ed Job. "Had a smash up, hain't we ?" "Seems so," answered Miss Steb bius. "I guess there hain't nobody killed, an' that's lucky. I'm glad you ain't hurt. I was" afeanl you was Hrr solicitude touched Job's heart is nothing else ever bad. ''You ain't damaged any, be you ?" he asked, anxiously. "Not any to speak of," answered Miss Stebbius, "but my rlo'os is jest completely spilt. There's mv bumiii sailiu' about over there, 'i wish you'd git for me." Job bccured a pole, and, after angling unsuccesMuMv for a while, got a bite and landed this new kind ol lish on the bank, where it lay in a very limp aud dejected condition, having but little resemblance to the showy bonnet Miss Stebbius had worn. "I'm coinin' ashore," announced Miss Stebbius. "Let mo come an' git you," pro posed Job, not without sonio tinni- dation, it must be confessed. "So, I can git along 'thont piittin' you to any trouble," answered Mis.s Stcbbins. "What a self-reliant woman slio is,' Job thought admiringly. "She'd take care ofa man, now." Stic gathered the ruined "alpacy" about her, stepped oil the extem porized rait, and waded ashore without screaming snakes! or any thing of the kind. Job concluded that she was one woman in a hun dred. So she was. "You're all mud an' scum," said she, after inspecting Job c!oel "I II git a stick an' some grass an' kinder clean you up." And for the next ten minutes Job experienced new and novel bliss in being "clean ed up" by this energetic woman, who had now obtained complete possession of his heart. "She's a manager," concluded Job. "If she had charge of my place, now, she'd make things fetch in snilim'. f wish she had." The conductor announced that it would be two or three hours belore they could proceed. "Don't you teel as of vou'd like sutbin' to eat ?" asked Job". "I "ness you didn't finish tint ehickiii." "I would like somethin'," answer ed Miss Stebbius, and Job proposed mat mey should viit a farmhou sc near oy anu procure some. "I'll set out hereon thif stone iny tho. Kim mi' let- n...ci,- .:n i.U f ready," said Miss Stebbius. and took a position on a rock by the roadside. Job at down by her." "I'm thankful we ain't killed," said she. "How lucky I got ac quainted with you, ain't it? Friends is always so pleasant iu sich times." The glance which accompanied this sentiment finished Job. "Oh, Miss Stcbbins, le'mc be your friend for life!" cried he, with an awful pallor on his face, the effort he made in saying it was so intense. "I know it's sudden, but theul" and there he stuck fast. "Do you mean marriage?" asked Miss Stcbbins, with such a warmth at heart that her clothes dried rap idly from the diffused heat. "Yes, I do," answered Job; "I do." "I don't know what John an' Al- miry'd say, but I hain't no objec tions, to speak on," answered Miss Stebbius, with downcast eyes, and beaming face. "Then it's a bargain I" exclaimed Job. "Glory! This is better'n the Fourth ! I'm goin' to kiss you, Miss Stehbins." "You may if you want to, an' call me Susan," she said. The boy who was looking out of the window reported to his mother, busy over the dinner, that the man was kisgin' the woman, an' ho should think he'd be 'shamed of himself. But Job never thought of such a tiling! Wasn't he engaged to be married? Aud didn't a man al ways kiss a woman when she'd promised to marry him? I can't say what wonderful bar gains Miss Stcbbins made in tho dry-goods line, but sho went home with a man, and has been happy ever since. So has Job. The HisIiCfet Ambition ofa Female'. illiiid. A married gentleman of our ac quaintance takes pleasure in an nouncing that "the highest ambi tion ofa female mind should be to cook a good dinner." Without agreeing with this gentleman to'the extent of such a sweeping assertion, every sensible woman will admit that a certain knowledge of cookery is indispensiblc to the maintenance ot a happy household and a contented husband. Old wives will tell young er ones that theway to a man's heart is through his mouth, and this fact, however painful to romantic young ladies, becomes more apparent at each succeeding jear of married lite. It is only natural that men should become somewhat gross by contact with the vulgarity of the woi Id; somewhat exacting in their demands; a littlec ill-humord, per haps, it the salad does not please them, and very delightfully conver sational if the dinner goes oil' well. These objcctiou-iblc traits must be taken along with the superior vir tues of honor, manliness and con-t slancy, as the quartz accompanies the streak of gold. It is foolish to wish otherwise, for a man devoid of these faults would undoubtedly be effeminate, and would bo therefore an unworthy object of heroworsliip. A young woman during the first week of her married life entertains vague suspicions that the above statements are true, lier Charles, who is almost, u not quite, exemp from human failings, has already mamlested a profound admiration for veal pics, and has openly ex pressed his detestation of overdone mutton. She accordingly builds up within her a fortress of resolutions, iu which to guard that sacred treas ure ofa husband's affection. In her girlhood this young woman had spent much time iu cultivating her musical taste, in reading Emerson and Carlyle;she had been loud of pretty landscapes, and could use her pencil with effect, and she had been beard to declare with pride that when she married she would give up none of these things. Let us visit her now at the end of ten years of matrimony, and we will find that she has broken her vow aud thrown it to the winds. We find a tiresome sort of person whose whole intellect iu absorbed in at tending to the cares ot housekeeping and in getting stylish dresses for her children, conversation rises seldom iiiiov.o the level o ('infant gos sip? and servants, and the only ideas developed by time aud experience mi lier conviction that men are most unreasonable and selfish of crea tures, and women the most abused and self sacrificing. Thcro is a great evil somewhere. but what is it? The husband ac knowledges to himelf that he is disappointed in the wifo he has chosen, and yet he finds difi'eulty in pointing out her mistake, and can hardly find cause to blame her, for is she not a faithful wife, a devoted mother and a most frugal manager. The mistake is a national character istic. So passionate and intense is the American mind in pursuit of its temporary interest, that men will sutler the chains of business to bind them down, and throttle them while their wives bend beneath a similar yoke or duty at home. What is lacking is the power to rise above the petty annoyances of daily life; we need to learn to dis tinguish tntles from ailairs of mo ment, to know tint every mole hill is not a mountain. We need not forsake the upper strata of senti ment, thought and ideality the atmosphere of the soul because we know that there is a lower one ot routine and small vexations,in which our feet arc told to tread. To breathe in tho one is to receive strength and refreshment for exer tion in the other. It is a very good plan to pick up needles and pins from the floor, but picking pins ought not to be made the chief ob ject of existence, for if we Tnove along with our heads constantly downward, we most assuredly will sec nothing better than niiis and needles to the end of our davs. -s yf i .?. m,m' If-culture is the dutv of evcrv m being: and lies within the reach of every human will. A wife does her husband great wrong who allows her-self to sink into an in ferior po-ition by his side, for wo man's influence is wide-spread and penetrating, beariug, directly upon the taste and inclinations of her husband.

J It is now announced, on the au thority of that "eminent physician," that it is not healthy to rise before eight o'clock in the morning. This applies only to men. Wives can rise at seven aud start the fires as heretofore. It was about this time of year when the little boy expressed the wish that he was built like a hen coop, out of laths, so that the breeze could blow right through him.

Last Monday Mr.Satnucl Mitchell, who is known iu religious parlance ns a Second Adventist, was tried by the County Court under an indict ment of tho grand jury for violating paragraph -1,570 of the code of Georgia, which makes it a misde meanor to labor on?the Sabbath day, except iu cases of necessity or charity. Tho proof in Mr. Mitchell's case was conclusive by his own admission that he had hauled rails and plowed on tho S.tbbath dav. But he contended that his religion required him to work six days, and to rest ou tho seventh ; that from his interpretation of the Sacred Scrip lures, he felt it his duty to work ou our Sabbath day, and to rest on our Saturday. He tried to shelter him self under the Constitution of the state, article one, section oue, para graphs twelve and thirteen, guar anteeing to all men the right to worship God according to tho dictates of their own conscience. The Judges decided that tho law under which the defendant was indicted had nothing to do with his religious belief; that he could worship God in anv manner and anywhere that ho pleased, aud tho laws ol Georgia made it a crime for anyone to disturb him in his wor- ship; that the law under which he was indicted did not sav what relig ious tenets he .should entertain, or what he should reject; but only decided that he should not labor on the Sabbath day, except in ca?os of necessity or charity, and tint this Constitutional provision upon the liberty of conscience did not excuse acts of licentiousness or guilty practices, inconsistent with the peace and safety of the State; that a disregard of the Christian S.ibbilh iu violation of the laws of the coun try would tend to demoralize tho country, and would therefore en danger the peace and safety of the same Quitman (6'a.) Ileportcr. Atlrnutiigcs on-larly INiTcrly. The worst thing thatcan happen to a young man in college is to have a father or mo'her so iiiiudicious as to keep him amply supplied with pocket money. It is fatal to all studious habits, and in the end gen erally fatal to good morals. This is equally the case with a young man iu business who is made to feel that to him "salary is no object" that a wealthy father's purse is always open to his most extravagant de mands. Nothing develops a young mau like fighting his own way in the world. Some spur of iiocessity, some bracing air of adverse sur roundings is needful to most men, if they are to put forth their whole power. The rich man's heir, nursed and petted from infancy, and shielded from battling with the world never fairly learns to stand erect and walk alone. If by any chance he is stripped of his inherit ed wi-plth, and has to learn to give and take hard knocks like others, he nearly always goes under in the struggle at any rate he seldom re gains by his own efforts the fortune he had lost. Nearly all the wealthy and cfl'ectivc men of this country are poor men's son's sons. Nearly all of the scholars, poets, orators statesmen, are poor men's sons. Wealth has its advantages it is true ; but, after all, the son of a rich man begins life with tho odds against him. The poor man's sou has all the odds iu his favor. He must work or starve. He has nothing to lose and every thing to gain. The rich man s son lias al read v social nosi- tiou and every tiling that money can give him. There Is much Ie?s to sinve ior aim uiiiuitciv esc iiuliien- inent to strive. A lVonznn'f B'laii. Mrs. Willard, in the Chicago Post, alluding to the distress in the cities of the countrv, savs: "The real source of all wealth is the soil, and from it must come ultimately all fi nancial relief. Fortunately for this country we have millions of rich, fertile acres, only awaiting breaking aud planting to laugh with the har vest; we have inexhaustible mines of mineral wealth; we have bound less forests of valuable timber. It ought to be a very simple problem to get food and raiment for all iu our country. And jut here is where we wish to suggest a plan that is without precedent. Cities burdened with the uncmploved might, instead of spending their; poor-tax simply to keep the poor from hand to mouth, purchase large tracts of western lauds, and send out colonies to settle upon them. Trans portation would have to be furnish ed, also seed, implements and main tenance for a year at least, or until the crops should be raised. A lien on the houses, implements and land would secure the ultimato reim bursement ofa large portion of the money expended. The rise in the value of the land through cultivation would be an important factor in the success of the plan. The conditions by which laborers should eventually become owners of the land should 1 be easy yet definite. In a business I point of view, it would be vastly better than the constant waste of money in merely feeding the poor. In a moral point of view, nothing could be more desirable than tho draining away from large cities, to pure, healthful, free country, and villago life, the families of laborers. And were some such plan organized aud put in operation, thousands and hundreds of thousands of laborers would speedily avail themselves of its benefits, and would not only make themselves comfortable and happy, but would eventually make ' the country rich. And to record the increasing prosperity of the country tinder a regime so entirely without precedent would give a new and delightful element to future history. Weather strips Changing you WHOLE NO.

One nighi a smart young man, who lives iii a certain city, found a toad liopp'i , around iu the garden, and though it would be a capital joke to pat it in a table drawer and let it hop out suddenly and frighten bis wif. Before be closed the drawer he was called into an adjoining room, nn.l forgot all about the toad, which, during the night, hopped out on t!i2 floor, and, crawling into a vscar.t boot, pas9f d a pleasant ui''ht of is. The next morning the honsehold was horrified by shrieks of mascu line distress, and an old woman on the other side of the street, going homo from markot, was knocked nearly senseless by a flying boot that came crashing through the front window. The smart man said th:s custom of nlavinir practical iokes on people was as dangerous as it was foolish, and it he over caught any body fooliug around hi3 boots a tin with toads, or anything etjc, Io would teach them a salutary lesson .
