DAKOTA AND MINNESOTA, -ON- REAL ESTATE worth from two and one half to five times the amounts loaned. Interest and Principil will be collected and paid here and Insur ance and Taxes looked after with out expense to investors. The following are some of the reasons why I can positively rec ommend these investments : 1. The Red River Valley is one of the best farming regions in the wo; Id, is well settled and prosperous, and Has Nkver Had a Failure of Crops. 2. Loans there have much Lar ger Margins of Security than similar loans east and interest is paid more promptly. 3. An experience of eight years in loaning in all parts of the Valley has given me a reliable knowledge of lands, values and all necessary details which enables me to select the best loans on My Own Judgment. 4. I either know personally the security for each loan or have it specially examined by men for whose good judgment and integrity I can fully vouch. Shall be pleased to submit appli cations in person or by mail, to quote rates and to give the facts connected with each loan as I KNOW them. H. M. RICH, Morrisville, Vt. COfflce in Bank.)

Car'line was Hannibal's daughter by his first wife, as you'll remember, and she wouldn't come to her par' weddin' because she happened ter pit her bangs cut off shorter 'n what she thought was proper. I guess like enough they wan't jest right cordin' ter rule, for 1 noticed em the first thing when we got home. They looked fruzzly; didn't seem ter lay down slick, ye know, and the ends stuck out all round her forrid kinder sasisy and independent. But, my land ! I dunno' who would stop ter find fault with her bangs oranything else about Car'line when sho stood afore 'em ! She might be harnsome and sh( might not, I couldn't say, butsartin ly she brightened and sweetened the room where she stood like a bokayo' pinks and roses. I wish I could de scribe her. She wasn't very short nor very tall ; her hair was yeller as gold, and her big eyes was brown, and looked up at you kinder shy and beseechin as if the.y's forever coaxin' you to love her. 'T any rate you'd feel so, till she smiled, and then she'd look so roguish that you'd wonder whether no her eyes wa n t foolin . !he was what lolks up our way calffl 'pleasant spoken." Her voice wast so sweet and cheerful that it made you feel' happier jest to hear the sound on't. And all her ways was cunnin' nI Kmcful , an a bird's. That's Car'line as nijlrs I can gither and I wish 1 could dew it better, but 1 can t, Car'line was sixteen years old, but she seemed like a child still, and she was a child in heart and life. She hadn't never been out of her native town o' Punkinville more'n once or twice, and the great unknown world lay all before her, to see and to enjoy never to spile her, nor to make her suffer, 1 dew hope and pray. She had plenty o' beaux a'ready, 'cording to OLD AGE OF INDIANS. Defying All Eules of Health Keep Well and Strong. Tiey The Remarkable Longevity of the Indian Race Explained.

Jest 'fore we was mar ried he savs ter me, dretful down hearted : "Ruth Ann," says he, "I'm 'fraid Car'line '11 be terrible care tew ye or ruther the fellers hangin' round her these days. The dumb gumps ! " "Hannibal, don't you worry," I answers. "Ill risk 'em. 1 hey cant be wusa an meazles and hoopin cough, and all them other diseaze I should haf ter contend with if she was younger. She's got through with all them long ago, and I'm thankful. But as for beaux why, a young girl without beaux would be a monstrosi ty!" says I. "Oh, wall, Car'line ain't much of a monstrosity, I take it, eays Hanni bal. (He's awful proud o' Car'line.) Before I say any more about Car' line, I wanter stop and relate the trunk eppersode, because it's connect ed intimit with her hist'ry. When Hannibal and me come home from our weddin' toor, his trunk got changed somehow. Mine was mine all right, but his'n was somebody's else. He and the depo'-master couldn't make nothin' out between 'em, only that the strange trunk had followed mine from New York, and there wa'n't no name, nor any way ter tell who it belonged ter, nor where h? lived nothin' 'cept the initials 11. l. u., in big letters. Wall, we concluded it was a swap, and H. I. (1 , whoever he was, had got Hannibal's trunk with his name and address tacked onto it in plain let ters, and we naterally supposed he'd know enough ter write and have the thing fixed proper. But we waited a week or more without hearin a woru and we begun ter think we never should, so, come Saturday night, Mr Hawkins fitted a key to the trunk, and says ter me and Car'line: " Come, let's go'n open Mr. II. I. G.s trunk toeretner." Did you ever open a trunk that be longed to an unknown person? A trunk whose contents you knew noth in' about, whether male or female, rags, or silks and satins, dynermite orsassages! I tell you, I never ex perienced a queerer sensation than what I did settin' on that trunk, try ing to spunk up courage to let Han nibal pen it! And Car'line felt jest as narvous about it as I did. But much as we hung back, we was dyin' ter know what was in it; and so, we said "Open it," though we both felt we might be blowed ter atoms the next minute. Sech is woman's curi osity. (Not but that Hannibal was every mite and grain as curious as we was.) Wall, he put in the key, give it a turn and lifted the lid. We all held our breaths and looked, and I know I couldn't a felt fainter ii I'd seen It. I. ii. himself laid out there in that top tray in his grave clothes! But, massy sakes! There wa'n't nothin' in the world ter hurt anybody ! Only a pile o' clean shirts, all done up spick and span. We took them out and found underneath a complete outfit o' men's clothes, the nicest and nobbiest we ever Bat eyes on. Mr. Kig as we'd concluded to cull him whoever he was, hud good clot lies and plenty of them. There was other things besides the clothes in the trunk, things we didn't know the name northe useon. What 'tracted Car'line's 'tention was a red leather box, full of queer little tools. Some was ivory and some was steel, but they all looked tew small and dainty for a man to work with. Car'line showed them ta me and blushed and laughed. "He must a meant them for a pres ent to his girl," says she. "See, her name is on the kiver." And sure enough, there it was in gilt letters, "Manicure." "Too bad she can't have her pres ent," says Car'line; if we only knew what's her other name, and where she lives, we could send them to her, and find out about Mr. Itig. I sup pose that is just her given name." She said it over kinder soft to her self, "Manicure, Manicure; a pretty name, ain't it mar?" says she. Wall, them c lothes was all tew small for Hannibal, and tewyoung-lookin. They evidently belonged to some rich city chap, for there was no paper col lars nor overhalls nor checkered shirts. Everything was costly and regular go ter meetin', ye know. Car'line thought they was tew cute for anything. "Oh, my !" says she, holding up a lavender kid glove and a little shiny boot, "wouldn't the l'unkinville boys stare ter see Mr. Kig with these on." There didn't seem to be anything else to do, and so we put the trunk in the spare chamber and left it. Han nibal said he reckoned he had got the best of it, even if he could not wear the clothes, for he didn't value his own trunk so great, there wasn't much in it ; and he said Car'linecould have Mr. Big's things for a wedding present to her husband, if she'd git a feller they'd fit! ... Car'line was crazy to have a pian ner. She were of a notion that she could learn to play on one real easy. She'd picked out some tunes a'ready on one o' the neighbor's seraphims, and now she wanted a pianner of her own. So her pa he came to mo and asked me what I thought, and if I would play on it any myself if we had one. "Me play on a pianner!" says 1. "No, Hannibal, I'm bleeged tew ye! Once when I was a girl I wasstoppin' down country with Aunt Harri't, and she coaxed me inter takin' some les sons. I begun and took just three but that was a plentyj I remember to this day how. I felt settin' there histed up on to that stool afore that instrument. Half an hour to a time, four tinie3 a day, I set there, with nothin' ter occupy me, but jest put tin' up fust one finger then t.otheron them inanimated iv'rys. What tor ture I suffered. How my fingers ached and how my back and my head ached. And how at the end of them two hours 1 tried ter think I'd Vom plished somethin', when I knew all the time I hadn't. How I looked for' ards and see nothin' but the same eternal misery, and how discouraged nnd appalled 1 was. I stood it three weeks, and then I went to my Aunt Harri't and says I : "Aunt Harri't, I've come ter the conclusion that if I must play on somethin', I'll git me a hand-orgin. I can turn a crank as well as anybody, but I can't learn ter play a pianner." And I couldn't. When I see girls practisin' from two to four houis a day, I wonder what they're made on. They must be con stitooted altergether different from what I be; in pint o' fact I know they are. And Car'line was. Why, I've seen her et down ter the pianner as eager as she would to a good meal ofvittles when she wus hungry, und touch the keys a sort o' lovin' and caressin' as if they were somethin' dear and precious. And all the time she played, she'd have a sorter wrapped-up onairthly look on her face that almost scairt me. It wa'n't her fingers that played ; it was somethin inside of her. Jt was gen yus; ami a genyus for anything, I don't tare what, makes the labor o' dewin' on't light. But if a child haint no nateral hankerin' after music no genyus for it 1 say it s cruelty to animals to tie him down to a pianner or a fiddle, and its sure ter ruin his disposishun, if it don't the spine o' his back. Why not let him have somethin' that will give him solid comfort, instid o' tor ture? 1 erhaps he can draw or paint picters, or, better still, work with tools, like carpenterin' or so, if he's a boy. If he can't dew not hin' but saw wood and hoe petaters, if he loves it, in the nnme of humanity let him do it, and feel the bliss o' dewin' some thin' well. Ia my opinion there s two things in partick'Iar that nobody should un dertake ter dew unless they can't pos sibly help it, viz., namely : ter write stories and play music. So, now, when Car'line betran ter talk pianner I says: Child, do you love music bet ter'u you love to eat?" nnd she answers all eager and trembly : "Yes mar, I believe I do!" and I says, "All right you shall sartinly have a pianner." Then I preposed that we take a boarder for the summer, nnd so help earn it. We hadn't work enough ter hurt any oneof us, and the house was plenty big to 'commodate another. Car'line seemed pleased with the idee, but her par put it down at first. Said how he wa'n't goin' ter have his wimmin folks takin' in work and so on, but finally he gave in, nnd we ad vertized in a Boston paper. We had a good many letters from different folks nnd among 'em was one from a young man who signed his name as Richard Gordon. We thought it would be as well to take him as any body ; so he came. He win fine-'pr-arin' young man as one could wish to see, an' he had a way with him that told us to once he hadn't never !een used to plaincoun- try folks and country livin' before. He didu t seem ter feel big exactly, but he was different from the rest on us, ye know. He said how he was an orphan, and that drawed me tew him ; but when he said be d been dissi- patin' a little tew much, and his physician recommended a quiet life for a w hile, I felt like death. "Oh, dear," thinks I, "what an ex ample for Hannibal." I felt sorry for the young man, and I says real kind : "Mister Gordon, I hope you'll find Punkinville a good place to reform in. If you'll go to the temperance meetin's and sign the pledge, we'll help you all we can. Only you must be in 'arnest yourself, und fight and wrastle against your appetite. But we'll 'sist yon depend on't,,' says 1, encourngin'. He smiled at this and says: "Dear Mrs. Hawkins, your sympa thy iitul 'sintance would be received most jrrutefiil, indeed, but yon ini.s understand my meaning. .Sly dissi pation has only been in going to tew many balls and parties and that sort of thing. My habits in respect ter drinkin' is all right, I asshure you." And I guess he spoke the truth, for he haint never drinked a drop to my knowledge; but I felt relieved to hear him say it, and told him so, and we was the best o' friends to once. And after that I found out all about, him by writin' to Jemima Curtis, Hanni bal's second cousin, that lives in Bos ton. But about that pianner. You know we was goin' ter help buy it with the board money. Wall, we never paid a cent towards it, for the very day our boarder 'rived, 'long came the pianner tew. Mr. Hawkins done it ter surprise us, and surprised enough we was. And it dil beat all, how fast Car' line learned to play. It wa'n't but a few weeks before she could play the Moody and Sankey pieces in No. 1 and 2, and the fust time shesungnnd played of a Sunday night to her par, he wiped his eyes and said he "reck oned the pianner was all paid for." Car'line's voice wa'n't powerful, but it was sweet as an angel's. Let any body 1 don't care who 'tis, nor what he believes, whuther he swaliers the Andover creed hull, or haint got none at all let him hear our Car'line sing "I Need Thee Every Hour," and he will feel a longing in his soul, a reach ing out after God, if he never did be fore. I think it was Car'line's singing more'n her beauty that made Mr. Gordon fall in love with her. Any way, he took to her at fust, though we didn't think ol sech a thing as love between them. But it was more than month before I begun to reulize how things was going on between them. Wall, he stayed all summer nnd long inter the fall, and by that time all Punkinville knew what he was un tew. He'd give her a ring for a filipeen present nnd asked her if she would wear a tnnmonu one uimeoy. "Jest think, mar," sa-s Car'line, I shall have the first diamond ring in Punkinville." One dav Mr. Gordon went a fishing and rrot ketthed in a shower and came home wet as a drownded rat. And said how he hadn t got no more clothes as thick as them he had been wearinir and he was afraid he might git cold changing from thick ter thin. Car'line happened ter tliiuk of that trunk, and says she: "Mar, there s jest the thing among them clothes ami I think Richard and Mr. Rig might be about of a size.' She went nnd got 1 he clothes and carried them to his door, and pretty soon he came dowu with them on, and we exclaimed ter once that they fitted on to him for all the world as if they's mada for him. " here did you get uieseciotnes : he asked. And I told him in a trunk that come tew us by mistake. "And," says 1, "there's a lot more, and oth things besides." "Ix't's see them says he. So we took him into the spare chamberand the minute he set eyes on the trunk he slaps his hand on to his knee nnd says : "My trunk, by Jove. "Oh. is it." savs Car'line. "Then vou're Mr. Rig. Mar, he's Mr. Rig. 'Mr. Rig," he repeats over after her lookin from one to the other on us inquirin'. 'Why, yes; don t you see; and she points to the letters R. I. G. But what does the 1. stand for Then he looked nnd laughed. "R. I. G., Richard Ingram Gordon," savs he. "That's my name, of course. So I'm Mr. Rig, be 1 7 How droll." How strange we never thought on't before," says Car'line. "But where's pur's trunk? 1 lave you got it?" "No, I hain't got nobodj's trunk. I lost this on my way home from New York last summer, and here it is. But the clothes come real handy, didn't they?" He tflrned them over kinder care less, as if they wa'n't of much value tew him. They was a year old now. and I suppose he considered them nil gone by and out of stile. When he came to the leather box with Manicure's name on it, he look ed at the tools and finally rnrriod it to his room nnd set it on the table. Going down stairs, Car'line says to me: "Thnt Manicure will git hrrpresent now. after all." and I answers. "Yes, but I didnt think much about it. After this eppersode hnppened, all at once Car'line seemed to change in her manners toward Richard Gor don. When he spoke to her she answered stiff and proper, instid of laughing and snssy as she used tew, uudkhokept out of his way all die could. He was terribly cutup.didn't know what to make on it, nnd hung round trying to git a word with her alone, but she wouldn't give him no chance. It was so for a week, till I suppose he could stand it no longer, for, come Sunday morning, he says at the ' tattle lielore us all: "Miss Car'line, will vou go 1 church with me this morning?" ( ar line glanced athim for n second half defying, half crying, but some thin compelled her, I suppose, for she answered low ami trembly you could hardly hear. "Ves I dunno' but t will," then run off up-stairs. I thought at the time that they would come to an understanding with one another on the way ter meeting, and they did. She told me all about it. She always confides in mens if we were two girls together. It seems they took u cross-road that led through the woods. It was a good deal further, but they didnft care, they had plenty of time. They walked quite a piece without speak ing and pretty soon Richard took hold of Car lines hand and looked at it. "Car'line," says he, "where is the ring I give you? Have you lost it?" She snatched nway her hand, and says she: "No I haint lost it, but I am not going to wear it anymore. lou may huve it to give to Mani cure. "To give to who?" he asks, stop ping still in the road nnd looking at, her with his mouth wide open. "Why to that other girl. lou know w ho and you need not pretend to look so innercent. I dew hate and di spise a cheat so now!" says she. "A cheat? W ho is a cheat he asks, Ireadful stern. "Hain't I paid my. board hill hain't 1 paid all my bills? ( ar Iiik laughed, "lou men think n long as you pay your board nnd t ore-bills you are all right, lou forget you owe something to girls hearts and feelings." Car'line, Cnr line, what do you mean? he s ivs, droppin on a big rocker and pulling her dowu side of liirn. Now, Car'line,' he snj's, loving and firm, "you tell me what I have done. She dropped her head and blushed. "It's, it's that other girl-Manicure," she says. "Manicure, Manicure, he repeats to himself, and looks wild. "Yes. ou know who I mean. Her name is on the box youarekeepin ft r her! Oh, Richard, who is she, nnd where is she?" Then he hollered nnd laughed as if he would die. "Oh, Car'line, Car'line 1" says lie, when he got so he could spenk. "What a dear little igdorant gooie you be!" nnd he hugged her and kissed her over nnd over, laughing all the time as if he was crazy; and Car'line, half mad, half ashamed, had to submit, whether no. But when he had stopped at last toget his breat h. she ItcgiiiM again pouting: "Who is she, Richard : Who is Manicure?" Then ho tells her nboutit, nnd says she shall have the box, and he will show her how to use the little tools, though her fingers are pretty enough without nnd he kisses them again nnu again to prove it ; nnd when Car'line finds out what a silly blunder it all is, she hides her face and feels wuss'n ever, and cries and asks Richard if he ain't "ashamed of loving sucn a silly little gump!"' And he tells her how I e nin t, how he thinks she is jet right as she is, in every Bingle respect but one. He would like to change her name to hie Hawkins to Gordon right nway, if she w as willing. Then they both laugh and feel tat ter nne there they set and talk and talk, till the last bell logins to ring; then they go snrnteriug along the through the fields. And the fields was paradise, and the church was heaven ter them tew, because they was tergether. But you know, and I know, jest how they felt, am how everything wfinwl to them ; so what is the use of my say ing any more? Belle C. Grenne. Eleventh Annual Encampment.
