Till: UKIDE'S Tit I A I,. It 19 stranre what different csti mntcfl pcoplo will put on a nian;s charnrfer, nccording to Ihe eyes with which they may view him. In the opinion of some, Mr. lieujamiti Len edict not our hero exactly, but the next 11 inr to it, his uncle was n gentleman. scholar, and a philan thropist ; while others, quite as well qualified to iomsoii and decide, won dered that such a monster was al lowed to walk the earth unchalleng ed. For old lien llcuedict was just the sort of man to provoke and please in altercations a human March day, with streaks of sunshine and chilling gusts sandwiched thro' his nature. People who knew him liked him passing well, but it some times took a lifetime to know him as he really was. 'You will be sure to like my uncle, darling,' said Hugo Beuedict to his young wife. "He is eccentric, but he is sterling.' Hanhel did not answer, but her blue eyes were wistful and full of perplexity. Uncle Ben, whom she had never seen, but of whom she had heard much, was to her au in scrutable riddle, whom 6he feared more than she was willing to ack nowledge. For Hugo's future de pended to a certain extent upon Uncle Benedict, and with Hugh's future her own was bound iusepcr ably. She was a fair, fresh-looking girl, with velvety cheeks, bronze-bright hair, and features as correct and delicately cut as a cameo. Hugh was quite certain that Uncle Ben could not seo her without loving her, but these young husbands arc not apt to be impartial judges. She was sitting in the firelight at their lodgings, when the old geutle man first beheld her; and the only warning she had of his presence she saw reflected in Hugh's eyes. 'My dear, how do you do?' said the old gentleman, kissing Rachel on both cheeks. And she thought he was not so terrible alter all ! He turned to Hugh when he had thus unceremoniously made himself acquainted with his new niece-in-law. 'Well, young man, arc you ready to leave these lodgings and go to your home?' he asked; for be it known that the old gentleman had given Hngh and Rachel a wedding present of a now house, wherein they were to live. 'Quite, sir,' Hugh answered, chee rily. 'Shall it bo to-morrow?' Yes.' All right.' And Mr. Benedict sat down to spend the evening and enjoy him self. 'Well, sir?' said Hugh, when his uncle was taking his leave, and paused on the front door-steps to light a cigar. '"Well, sir? said Uncle Benedict, calmly. 'How do you like her?' asked Hugh. How can I tell ?' demanded the old gentleman, irritably. 'She's pretty to look at; so is a china doll, or awhile kitten 1 It isn't always the prettiest calicos that wash the best. Good evening.' And Hugh Benedict, albeit he was very fond of his uncle, did not know whether to be vexed or not. Early the next morning, however, Uncle Ben mad'o his appearance be fore the young people, breathless and eager. 'Truuks packed, eh?' 'All but the last one, uncle' and Rachel lifted her pretty head out of the tray, as you may have seen a red clover blossom rise up from benealh a child's footstep. 'I'm going to take you down to Bloomdalc, myself, my dear,' said Uncle Ben. 'Hugh, I want you to go to Canterbury with these letters. They're of importance. I'd go my self if I were ten years younger; but Budden journeys dou't agree with old bones like mine.' Hugh looked aghat at the propo sal ; Rachel turned pale. 'Can not the business be postpon ed, sir?' said Hugh, hesitatingly. 'No, it can't !' replied Uncle Ben, curtly. 'If you don't want to. go, say so. I dare say I can find some one elso to oblige me.' 'Of course I shall go,' said Hugh. 'But Rachel ' 'I suppose I'm old enough to take care of a little girl like that,' said Uncle Ben, in an aggravated tone. 'You'll find us both in the new resi dence, with the table laid for din ner, when you come back to morrow.' So there was nothing for it but for Hugh to kiss little bride a half score of times and commission Uncle Ben to take the best possible care of her until he should return. 'Foolish childron I' said Mr. Bene dict, as he saw Rachel sobbing on Hugh's shoulder. But there was a cheery twinkle in his own keon grey eyes, nevertheless. Poor little girl! the atmosphere has lost somewhat of its sparkle, and the world looked less bright as she journeyed in Uncle Ben's barouche towards her now home, with Uncle Ben's newspaper rattling by her side. As the autumn twilight began to lall, her thoughts becamo busy, as a woman's will, at times. 'Uncle,' she sa:d, turning suddenly toward the bid gentleman, 'what sort of a house is it ? Ours, I mean !' 'Well,' said Uucle Ben, reflectively, it's a cottage, I should say.' 'A modern cottage?' 'Wqll, no; rather of the antique order than otherwise.' 'Oh!' crieiL. Rachel, 'I am glad. I despise those new, stiff, formal places, that look as if they were merely to oe aumireu, not lived in and enjoyed. Uncle, what are you laughing at?' 'At your curiosity, my dear,' re plied the old gentleman. 'Then I won't ask another ques tion,' said Rachel, resolutely. But she fully atoned for that de privation by sketching on the tables of her own fancy an endless variety of little Gothic structures, with bay windows, and trellises covered with climbing roses and honey-suckles; while Uucle Benedict watched her from behind the screen of his news paper, with the queerest expression on his brown old face. 'I'm almost sorry I commenced the thing,' he said to himself. 'If I should be disappointed in her! But, pooh! it's the only way to find ont if she is worth my boy's love.' Presently the lumbering old char iot came to a stand-still; but to Rachel's surprise, in front of no fairy cot or low-eaved edifice sur rounded by verandas and flower parterres. A tumble-down, unpaint cd farm-house stood back a little from the road, with its shutters hanging loosely by one hingo, and one or two scrubby lilac bushes forlornly tossing their foliage to the wind. 'How dreary it looks!' thought Rachel, with a little shudder, as she wondered whether the coachman had really meant to stop there. But Uucle Bon at once seized his carpel bag and umbrella. 'Come, my dear,' he said to Rachel. 'Is this the place?' she asked. 'This is the place,' Uucle Ben an swered with a sudden paroxysm of coughing. 'Gate's a little out of order,' as f hat useful mode of ingres3 became suddenly detached from its sole remaining hinge and fell with a crash to the ground, 'but that's soon set right with a screwdriver and a half dozen screws.' Alas, poor Rachel I What were her sensations as she looked blankly around the neglected, dismal spot which was the solo realization of her fairy dreams ! This the home Uucle Benedict had given them ! And for an instant our poor little heroine felt as if she could repel the unwel come gift and tell Uncle Benjamin plainly that she could not spend her days in a hovel like this. But then came sober and second thoughts. Uncle Benedict had meant kindly; they were poor, and could not afford lodwpense with the meanest of roofs over their heads. No, she must gratefully accept the present in the pirit in which it was given, and check in the bud all her rebellious and unamiablo repiuings. 'I told you it was a cottage, you know,' said Uncle Ben, keenly scru tinizing her face, as they stood on tho doorstep waiting for the door to be opened. 'Yes, I know,' said Rachel, glanc ing round with brightening eyes. 'That is a very choice climbing rose over tho window, if it was only properly trained.' It's rather Ionsome,' said Uncle Ben. 'I like the country,' Rachel an swered, hopefully. As she spoke, a slipshod old woman appeared to lot them in, and led the way to the best room, a green-curtained apartmont, with a shabby carpet on the floor, aud a fire in the grate that emitted far more smoke than caloric. 'Smoky chimueys, eh ?' said Uncle Ben. 'The draught seems to be poor,' said Rachel ; 'but I dare say it can be altered.' I hadn't any idea the ceilings were so low,' grumbled the old gen tleman. 'It's partly the elfect of the large patteru of the wall-paper,' said Rachel, with a glance at the red and green monstrosities. 'A narrow striped patern will improve it.' 'What queer little cupboards by the side of the mantle!' said Uncle Ben. 'Oh, they will bo nico for our best china,' said Rachel. 'My dear,' said the old gentleman, 'I believe you are determined to be pleased. Do you really think you shall liko this place?' 'I shall like any place where Hugh is!' said Rachel, brightly. She went all over tho house with the old gentleman, planning im provements, and suggesting aud contriving, until he really began to think she would mako an Arcadia out of the tumble-down old farm. And if she shed a few teais on her pillow when she went to rest under the caves of the roof, in an apart ment which must have been built lor Tom Thumb, Uncle Ben Benedict never suspected it. There was the chariot at the door whou Rachel rose from her break fast of bread and butter and coffee the next morning. Come, my lass.' said the old gen tleman, I want to show you a place further up the road, which has been taken for a friend of mine.' The drive and the delicious Sep tember air were like an invigorating tonic to our wearied little bride; and a picture after the style of Wat teau awaited them, in the exquisite villa, with its rose-clad bay-windows, and picturesquely sloping roof. Rustic chairs stood under the bowing branches of the elms on the lawn, and a marble cupid, holding up a carved couch-shell, scattered bright rain into a flower-bordered basin directly in front of the gales. 'Oh, how beautiful!' cried Rachel. 'I never saw such superb scarlet geraniums in my life; and what a lovely marble-paved hall.' 'You like the appearance?' 'Oh, yes; 'tis beautiful.' 'Come in, my dear, and see how you like the interior,' said the old gentleman, sereuely. It was perfect, from the drawing rooms, with their superb Brussels carpets and exquisite silk hangings, to the chambers all in white and pink, liko the inside of a rose's heart, aud the fairy conservatory, stocked with camclias, heliotrope, and rare fuchsias, at the south end of the house. 'It is like fairyland,' cried Rachel, enthusiastically. 'Do tell me, Uncle Ben, who is to live here?' Uncle Ben turned round and faced her. 'You, my dear I 'And Hugh, of courso?' 'To be sure!' 'But, uncle,' gasped little Rachel, quite overwhelmed by this unex pected good luck, 'the other house' 'That's only a little joke or mine! This is the real home, and I give it to you with all tho more pleasure that you were disposed to make the best ot the bad bargain you thought you were in for. My dear, the con tented mind you possessed is worth a thousand houses!' And Rachel felt something warm aud wet upon her cheek, like a tear, as the old gentleman stooped lo kiss her. When Hugh came home to find his little wife upon the veranda, all welcoming smiles to greot him, he exclaimed : 'Why, Uucle Ben, this is a perfect casket!' But none too good for the little jowel that inhabits it,' Uncle Beu answered. And Hugh read in the tone that hia young wife had won the capri cious old gentleman's heart. Io Animal ICphwou V In the Penn Monthly W.W. Kins ley gives facts to show that our poor relations, the brutes, are endowed with the faculty of reason. A cler gyman testifies that he observed a fox playing in an euclosure where there were swine and their young. At length he seized a block abonl as large as one of the pigs and dash ed through the fence, of course without alarming tho mother sow. Finding that tho hole was large enough, and that he was not pur sued, he returned and carried off a pig without exciting disturbance. Bishop Wilson knew au elephant whose blind eye was cauterized by a surgeon, causing the poor beast to yell, but curing him. By-and-by the other eye had to be operated upon with nitrate of silver, and they feared the elephant would fly at the same doctor; but he received him kindly, and submitted at once to the operation. Huber one day saw a pieco ot comb fall in a hive, because the supports were too weak. The bees first fixed under it temporary sup ports, then fastened it securely to the sides of tho hive, then cut away the pillars which obstructed their pathway. They probably never had such an exigency before. Instinct would never have suggestod block ing up their own road to the unfilled combs; and then there must have been some consultation to enlist their whole force in the work. "Bob, what's steam?" "Boiling water." "That 's right compare it." "Positive boil, comparative boiler, superlative burBt." CahlMiKlii" from a )aaker. A friend say, "I remember an amusing story rv father used" to tell." He was culling, soma thirty or rorty years ago, in Philadelphia One day during the dull sensou an elderly Quaker came into tho store with some cloth which ho wished to have cut into a coat. My father told him he would cut it for a dollar. "Well," miiiI the Quaker, "theo may cut it ; hut as the tailors some times cabbage clolh, as thee calls it, I shall slay and watch theo while thee cuts it." "All right," said my father; "but really. friend, your watching wouldn't keep me from cabbaging, if I choose to do so." "Thee is welcome to all theo can steal without my catching thee," said the Quaker, confident in Ids own shrewdness. The cutting - bo'ard was close against a window, between which and tho board were some eieht inches of space. My father, in laying off the coat, left a good vest pattern, which ho chalked in various shnpes, and after he had cut oil the pieces, he called the Quaker's attention to something in the room, and with his shears pushed the "cabbage" from the hoard between it and the window, when it dropped quietly to the floor. He rolled up the job, putting in all the scraps, and handed it to tho Quaker. "I suppose you're satisfied that you have all your cloth ? asked my lather. "Yeo, I'm satisfied. Thce's wel come to all thee's stolen." When the Quaker had gone, fath er took the -cabbage" from under tho table, and cut a vest from it for liiiimulf. Not long nfler he was standing in Ihe door, with the vest on, when ho .saw Ihe Quaker on the other side of the street. He called to him aud invited him into the store. "How .did your coat til?" asked in v lather. "Very well : fice is a good cutter." "Thank you. How do you like my vest?" asked my father, throw ing open his coat and showing tho "cabbaged" garment. "It's a nice vest. Where did you get the cloth ? I' like mine." "It wni yours; you gave it to me, you remember." "No, I don't remember." "You said I was welcome lo all I had 'cabbaged.'" "Yes." "Well, I 'cabbaged' this." "Thee did ?" "I certainly did." The Quaker scratched his head a moment, and then reached out his hand, which my father took. "Thee is a good cutter," he said, and he added as he turned to go, "aud thee is too smart for me, but thee is welcome to the vest." Think or Other. The honest expression of an hon est belief ought always to awaken a respectful sympathy, even in those who cannot share it ; and, if we only drew closer to those whose opinions are adverse to our own, we should find much in them to draw forth this sympathy. Nothing can bo more unjust than to charge people with moral delinquency because their intellectual perceptions are at variance wilh our own ; yet this in precisely whst we do when wo decry an opposite party and attribute to its members mean and unworthy motives when their only crime is that they will not adopt our viowa or pursue our methods. Holding ourselves so far aloof from them, we imagine them to be monsters; if wo draw near enough to discern their mental condition, we shall find them to be men like ourselves, aud a still closer approach will enable us to extend to them the right hand of brotherhood without the least in fraction of our own or of their per fect liberty of thought. A Charming Woman. What is more charming than an agreeable, graceful woman? Here and there we meet one who possess ses the fairy-like power of enchant ing all about her. Sometimes sho is ignorant herself of the magical iufluence, which is, however, for that reason, only the more perfect. Her presence lights up the home; her approach is like the cheering warmth ; she passes by and wo are content; she stays :i whilo and we are happy. To behold her is to live ; she i3 the aurora with a human face; she makes an Eden of the house; paradise breathes from her, and she communicates this delight to all without takiug any greater tronble than that of existing beside them. Is not here au inestimable gift?
