Mrti'thu (iris wold had boon :i mem ber of hor Uncle. I lurry (iriswold'f? family ever since clio cnnlil remem ber. Indued, she b:id been its most happy member, for. being of .1 healthy, cheerful nature, she did not morbid I v brood over dependence, but tliM-Uullv took the good? the gods provided, which, in "her case, her uncle bring wealthy, was meas ure full to ovei flowing. Such a calm, steady ray of light in the house was she that every one counted the hours when she was absent. Her aunt had often remark ed to her husband that she hoped Martha would remain single, for she did not know what in the world they could do without her. It looked now as if this would be the result, for Martha had been engaged to Gerald Allison for -pven years, and for his love she had, much to the ire of her uncle, declined many brilliant oilers. fJerald Allison was a poor clerk, who hud long looked forward to an advancement in his salary, but each year came round with the old, yet ever poignant disappointment ol being unable to oiler a suitable home to the woman whom he had chosen from all the world as his. It came to be an old story that Gerald should come and go, though her aunt and uncle had little liking for him. as is otten the case of the prosperous, to those less successful. To .Martha's aunt and uncle the idea that she and Gerald would ever marry was utterly preposterous, and her uncle had once taid to her, in the heat of argument : 'This tardy lover of yours will keeji all others away, and at last leave you himsclt.' 'I would as soon believe that you, who have been :i father lo inc, would turn me out of door-', in a pitiless storm,' she answered, in her low, soft tones; but faith spoke in them. Martha lacked beauty, yet she pos.serised a gi anions charm of man ner that won more enduring affec tion. She had a pure, fair complex ion, large blue eyes, clear and true as a child', ami a wealth ol blonde hair, which she disposed of in braids that in glossy softness crowned her head. She was below the medium height aud given to embovmitif. Gerald was her entire contrast in appearance and temperament, being tall, dark and remarkably handsome, given to extravagant flights of fancy, and frequent fits of depression. Although they were contrasts in this yet they were one in all noble and ambitious thoughts, in all generous aims for improvement. It was Ghrislmas eve, and the snow came down in soft flakes like white doves, as Gerald, covered with a mantle of the same, presented him self at the hall door, returning right merrily Martha's Christinas greeting as light of heart as a boy. I.ut as she stood there, so daintily lino in beautiful raiment, her face trustfully tender, it struck him and not for the first time, that he was wronging her. How could such as she combat the wolf at the door? And when in the parlor, he sighed, drearily contrasting its splendor with the poor comforts bn could give her. Martha, hearing the sigh. aid cheerily, though the tear-drops, those little messengers of sorrow, trembled and glistened at the end of her long lashes: 'Is it to wait another year, love?' '(), Martha!' he cried, seizing both of her hands, 'I have been blindly pellish; but, my darling, I must not sacrifice you ; you are not made for the drudgery of a poor man's lot," and he dropped his head in his hands in utter hopelessness. I cannot ask you to wait for me any longer,' he continued, a break in his voice, which is so touching in a st rong man. At first the quick blood of sensi tive feeling had crimsoned Martha's face; but her faith was so strong in him that she could not doubt, aud her heart, so womanly tender, was tilled with compassion for him. She put a soothing hand upon his head, which he took and pressed upon his e elide, and she felt teats upon it. 'Could we not ?' she said and fal tered; and he, looking up, she cotdd not meet his glance. 'Could we not" what ? Can it be, love, that you are willing to leave all these gew-gaws, and share a crust with me?' When ho read her candid answer in her sweet face, he felt blessed beyond deserving that (die should thus love him above all earthly things. 'You are Just throwing yourself away, Martha,' her uncle said ; 'you will always he as poor as a church mouse. Gerald has a fine poetical nature, as you say, but will that earn him a way in the world ? I'd give a good deal more for the old-fashioned word 'spunk. You are young and romantic, but I tell you that it will be uo play-day-with yon; you will earn your name of Martha belore T J 1880. you have been married a year; and when the cold winds blow aud penury pinches, you will regret the waiin nest you have left.' 'No. uncle, I fear nothing; wo have temperate wants, and with diligence we will succeed. The poor are more contented than the rich, and in thtt, at, least, wo can have a mine of riches.' 'Contentment never made the ket tle boil, nor furnished the meat tor the boiling; but its a rare tidbit for poetical souls to starve upon. These words, somewhat impatiently spo ken, ended a long discussion between Martha aud her uncle. The wedding day had been ap pointed ; and as Gerald owned a little farm about ten miles from the city, Martha" good sense suggested that it would be better to be com fortable tanners than poor city folks, for the farm would he a sure de pendence. Sleeping or resting, their crop" would be growing. "What a wise little woman.' said Gerald, half in earnest, half in jest. He could not endure the thought ot Martha drudging on a farm; but, in spite ot protestations, he at last fell into Martha's plan, happily, saying, 'Of all avocations, it is the one I should choose for mvsclf, but I feai for j on. 'Hut I am perfectly healthy, and have a strong heart for any fate with yon; and I have expected to marrj a poor man for the hist seven years, and I have been idle but have en deavored to render myself a compe tent, practical housekeeper. Do not be frightened,' she added, laughing at his look of wonderment, 'hut I wish to impress upon you the facl that we-shall need no Phillisto break our harmony- and the dishes.' Soon after this conversation, Ger ald look a ride to the farm and in spected the house. Upon opening the door, he was oppressed by a moldly smell, and found it little fit to be the habitation of man. Hut patience worked its reward when, at last, cleaned, papered and painted, it presented an agreeable aspect. Hut Gerald was troubled in spirit for he had expended his small means aud not a piece of furniture had he bought ; and Martha, seeing a cloud upon his brow, coaxed trom him his dilemma. 'Oh !' she cried merrilv. 'Auntie has given me a store of cast-away furniture. There are piles of it in the attic' He looked forlorn enough. Hud ho brought her to such extremity a this? 'Come and see our treasures.' she said, and roguishly tantalixed him with the sight of a mishuppen mas of furniture which she declared tri umphantly to be all her own. 'Ah !' she said, 'you have yet to learn. love, Ihe magic, of paint, glue and varnish.' Then, more gravoly, she extolled an old kitchen range that lay there, and di.-playcd its different merits, until he went away half comforted. Put at night he had the nightmare and dreamed that the furniture took human shape and battled with him. The wedding ceremony was per formed at the house of Martha's uncle, who looked like an astrologer foretelling her doom, and the aunts and all the cousins sighed most lugubriously over (car-wet handker chiefs. Uut, as a bit of comfort amidst this general wretchedness, Martha's uncle put three hundred dollars into her hand at parting. 'For pin money, my dear, he had said ; hut she thought, 'It shall be for a rainy day.' Gerald and Martha were glad to escape into the open air, as they started to the farm, 'upon their wedding tour,' as Marlha humorously called it. The winds blew bleak and Ihe carriage jolted over a rough road, and Gerald fear ed for Martha's discomfort but one look at that dear, unruffled face, aud his faint heart took courage. 'Thro storm and tide, wo Miall reach a sunny shore at last, love,' he whis pered ; and love and hope cast their halo of glory around them. The day before his marriage, Ger ald had taken to the farm the furni ture which Martha had selected from the debris, as useful to them, which consisted of a kitchen range, .1 parlor stovp, a drum, two dozen chairs, three old lounges, three arm-chairs, two rocking-chairs, a kitchen and a parlor table, three bedsteads, several wash-stands, half-wcru inatp, and many bright pieces of carpeting. Gerald put up Ihe stoves, and with stove polish and haul labor did jus tice lo Ihem; for, from rusty, un sightly things, they became as bright and as tine as new ; and in a man fashion, he put things to rights as much as possible; but how cnnt nud dilapidntnd looked (he appoint ments! He thought sadly that it was a" forlorn place to usher a bride into. Tint what a bright-faced bride entered his door with him, not al all cast down, but blooming with health and hope I A bright 'fire soon crack led in the kitcbuu range, and its WHOLE NO. 552. cheery warmth seemed to say 'Wei conic home.' Martha, divested ot bridal array, set about making pre parations for their simple repast. 01i, my dear! said Gerald, repin ing, 'It is a shame for you to do such kind of work.' 'Why a shame my husband ? In deed, it would be a shame for me to keep help, when I am so strong and well, without an ache or pain. le not cast down, for my lot is one 1 have chosen, and I prophesy that it will be a happy one.' What premo nitions of ill could prevail against sikIi a smiling faced prophetess, strong and brave at heart as any warrior? What wonder that the littlcmisty dount-olouds were fright ened away, aud that they set them selves down to their unostentatious meal like happy-hearted children, for there was a guest called love hi their table who is often a stranger to more sumptud'us repasts. 'Shall I do, or do you miss I'liillis?' inquired Marlha, looking demurely across the table at her husband. Gerald laughed, and yet declared it was a shame. 'l'.ut Gerald ! I do uot intend that my housework shall engross mj whole time. I shall so plan it that 1 may have time for things just as essential. Let us uot be in such a race after wealth, that wo curse with care and overwork our present, for wealth is, more often than otherwise, purchased at the price of happiness, health, aud conscience, and we can ill qiure these from our life. Lotus be diligent, and yet not forget Ihe mental and spiritual needs, nor yet crowd out thosecheerfiil recreations aud diversions that keep the heart voting and the physical being healthy.' 'Yes,' replied Gerald, his eyes dreamy and far seeing; 'we will lashion a life of our own, not iorau prototype; we will seek for a com petence; ami with prudence, which w another name lor Martha, at the helm, can we not reach it, without being too tired lo feel life's beauties aud benedictions?' Martha, within her heart of hearts, said Amen. Gerald and Martha arose before the sun. Thoy worked with energy, accomplishing more in the several hours that they devoted to labor than those who droned lazily the whole length of the day ; they work ed with heart. for there was the well earned reward of rest awaiting them, and which their conscience permit ted them to take. 'We shall not be broken down be fore our time, miserable, discontent ed gold heapers; hut we will gather the honey-laden flowers as we pass a'ong, with which to sweeten the bitterness of old age,' said Gerald lo Marlha. 'Hut how much time they waste,' said one neighbor to another, as the sat busy over their patchwork. 'I am sure that they only have what time there is, and they have a knack of getting more comfort out of it than most folks. I can tell you. I have known women to buy yards of calico, and tear to pieces Jo make quilts; aud if that is not an abomi nable waste of time I do not know what is.' 'God ha& given us so much time,' said another daughter, taking up the theme; 'and he who spends it the most wisely is the best oil". I wot.' So Martha made some converts; and a few seeds dropped by the wayside sometimes grow delicioiif fruitage, which may be scattered world-wide. The summer was waning when one day Martha's aunt said to her husband, with tone and droop of mouth most sorrowful. 'Let us go and ee poor Martha;' and they set out, fully prepared to condole with her, Uncle Gerald, on generous thought intent, having filled his purse. Hut when they .reached the gate, there stood Martha as joyous as any girl, not the faintest sugges tion of loneliness about her; and Gerald was handsomer than ever, for happiness sat well upon him. They had just bade good-day to a famous Judge, who, with his intelli gent wife, had been spending several days with them; so Martha had not been languishing in obscurity, an her uncle and aunt had imagined ; but friends hud sought (hem out, and coming once had come again.
