'Oh she answers my purpose. Hoss
flesh is high, Laur'y. Have to econo
mize, these times.
I am sure there is. no jaeed of your
economizing !' exclaimed Laura.leading
the way to the dining-room. 'Why don't
you use your mcney, and have the good
of it V
So I tell him,' said Mrs. Djcklow,
faintly. 'Why, Laury ! I didn't want
you to be to so much trouble to gi: din
ner jest for us ! A b'te would have an
swered. Do see, father !'
At evening Josiah came home ;.and If
was not until then that Ducklow men
ians t he subject that was foremoit in
What do ye think of Gov'ment bonds,
Josiah?' he incidentally inquired, after
Fin.-rate !' said Josiah.
About as safe as anything.ain't they?'
said Ducklow, encouraged.
Safe?' cried Josiah. Just look at
the resources of this country j Nobody
has begun yet to appreciate the power
undeveloped wealth of the United States.
It's a big rebellion, I know ; but we're
going to put it down. It will leave us a
big debt, very sure ; but we handle it
now easy as that child lifts thatstool
It makes him grunt and stagger a little,
not because he jsn't strong enough for
it, but because he don't understand hi3
own strength, or how to use it ; he will
have the strength, and know just how to
apply it, in a little while. Ju?t so with
this country. It makes me laugh to hear
folks talk about reputation and bank
ruptcy.' But s'pose we do put down the lebell
ion, and the states come back; then
what's to hinder the South, and secesh
sympathizers m the North, from joining
together and voting that the debt shan't
be paid ?'
'Don't you worry about that ! Do you
suppose we're going to be such fools as
to give the rebels,, after we've whipped
them, the same political p ower they LaJ
before the war ? Not by a long chalk !
Sooner than that.we'll put the ballot into
the hands of the freedmen. They're our
friends. They've fought oa the right
side, and they'll vole on the right side
tell ye spite of all the prejudice there
is against black kins, we ain't such a
nation of minnies as to give up all we're
fighting for, and leave our best friends
and allies, not to speak for our own in
terests, sn the hands of our enemies.'
You consider. Gov.ments a good in
vestment, then do ye?' said Ducklow,
'I do, decidedly, the very best. Be
sides, you help the Government ; and
that's no small consideration.'
So I thought. Bu how ia it about
the qowpon bonds ? Aim they rather
ticklish property to have in the house ?'
Well I dont know. Think how many
years you'll keep old bills and document;
and never dream of such a thing as los
ing: them ! Thore's not a bit mo-e dan
ger with the bonds. I shouldn't want
to carry them around with rae, to any
great amount, though I did once carry
three thousand-dollar bonds in my pock
et for a week. I didn't mind it.'
Curious!' said Ducklow: Tve got
threethousan'-djllar bonds in my pocke
this minute !'
'Well, it's so much good property ,
said Josiah, appearing tot at all surpris
ed at the circumstance.
Seems to me, though, if I had a safe
as you have, I should lock them up in it.
'I was traqeljing that week. 'I lock
ed them up pretty soon after I got home,
Suppose,' said Ducklow, as if the
thought had but just cccured to him;
'suppose you put my bonds-into your safe:
I shalt feel easier.'
'Of course,' replied Josiah, Til keep
them for you like.'
It will.be an accommodation- They
will be safe, will they ?'
Safe as mine are ; safe as anybody's
I'll insure them for twenty-five cents."
Ducklow was happy. Mrs Dicklow
was hapyy. She took her husband's peat
and with a pair of scissors cut the threads
ibat stitched the envelope to the pocket.
Have yau torn off the May coupons ?'
No.' 'Well, you'd better. They'll be pay
able now soon ; and if pou take thea.you
won't have to touch the bends again till
the interest on tee November coupons is
A good idea !' said Ducklow.
He took the envelope, untied the tape
and removed the contents. Suddenly
the glow of comfort, the gleam of satis
faction, faded'frcm his countenance.
Hello ! What ye got there ' cried
Why, father! massy sakes exclaimed
As for Ducklow himfelf, he could not
utter a word ; but, dumb with consterna
tion, he looked again into the envelope
and opened and turned inside out, and
shook, with trembling hands, its aston
ishing contents. The bonds were not
there: they had been stolen, and three
copies of the Sunday Visitor had been
inserted in their place.
Very early on the following morning
a dismal-faced middle-aged couple might
have been seen riding away from Josi
ah's house. It was the Ducklcws return
ing heme, after thoir fruitless, their
worse than fruitless, journey. No en
treaties could prevail upon them to pro
long their visit. It was with difficulty
even that thty had been prevented from
setting off immediately on the discovery
cf their loss, and travelling all night, in
their impatience to gel upon track of the
'There'll be not the least use in their
going to-night,' Jos'ah had said. If
they were stolen at the. bank, you can't
do anything about ittill to-morrow. And
even if they were taken from your .own
house, I don't see what's to be gained
now by hurrying back. 'It isn't probable
you'l ever see them again, and you may
just as well take it easy, go to bed and
get a fresh start in the morning.'
So, much against their inclination, the
unfortunate owners of the abstracted
bonds retired to the luxurious chamber
Laura gave them, and lay awake all
night, gruaning and sighing, wondering,
and (I regret to add) blaming each oth
er. So true it is, that 'modern conveni
ences,' hot and cold water all over the
house, a pier-glass, an I the most mag
nificently canopied couch, avail nothing
to give tranquility to the harassed mind.
Hitherto the Ducklows had felt great
satisfaction in the style their daughter,
by her marriage, was enabled to sup
port. To brag of her nice house and
furniture and two servants was almost as
good as possessing them. Remember
ing her rich' dining-roomand silver ser
vice and porcelain, they were enugh for
the honor of the family ; and asking
nothing for themselves, they slept well
their humblest of bed-chambers, and sip
ped their lea contentedly out of clumsy
earthern. But that night the boasted
style in which their darter- lived was
less appreciated than formerly ; fashion
and splendor were no longer a consola
If we had only given the three thous
and dollars to Reuben !" said Duchlow,
driving homewards with a countenance
as long as his whiplash, 'Il would have
jest set him up, and been some compen
sation for his sufferings and losses goin'
to the war.'
'WTal. I had no objections,' replied
Mrs. Ducklow. I always thougtit he
ought to have the money evenlooally.
And as Miss Beswick said, no doubt it
would a bsen ten times the comfort to
him now it would be a number of yeas
from now. But you didn't seem willing.'
I don't know !' it was you that was
not willing !'
And they expatiated on Reuben's
merits, and ther benevolent intentions
towards him, and, in imagination, en
dowed him with the price of the bonds
over and over again ; so easy is it to be
generous with lost money !
'But it is no use talking !' said Duck
low. 'I've not the least idee we shall
ever se the color of them bonds again.-
If they were stole to the bank, I can't
It does seem strange to me,' Mrs.
Ducklow replied, 'that you should have
no more gumption than to trust the
bonds with strangers, when ihey told you
in so many woads they would not be re
'If you have flung that in my teeth
once you have fifty times !' And Duck
low lashed the eld mare, as if she, and
not Mrs. Ducklow had exasperated him
Wal,' said the lady, I don't see how
we're going to work to find them, now
ley are lost, without makicg inquiries
without letting it be known wo had
I have been thinking about tL&t, said
her husband. 'Oh dear !' with a green ;
I wish the peiky cowpon bends had nev
er been invented !'
They drove first to the tank, where
they were of course told that the envel
ope had not been untied there. 'Be
sides, it was sealed, wasn't ?' said the
cashier 'Indeed '.' He expressed great
surprise, when he was informed that it
was not. 'It should have teen: I sup
posed any child would know enough to
look out for that !'
And this was all the ccnso'atioa Duck
low could obtain.
'Just as I expected,' said Mrs. Duck
low, as they resamed the journey. 'I
just as much believe that maa stole your
bonds as that you trusted them in his
hands in an unsealed envelope ! Beats
all, how you could be so careless !'
Wal, wal ! I s'pose I never shall
hear the last on it !'
And again ihe poor old mare had to
suffer for Mrs. Djcklow's offense.
They had but one hope now lhat
perhaps Taddy had tampered with the
envelope, and that the bonds might be
found somewhere about the. house. But
this hope was quickly extinguished on
iheir arrival. Taddy's being accused,
protested his innocence with a vehe
mence that convinced even Mr. Duck
low lhat the cashier was prcbatly the
'Unless, said he, brandishing the rat
tan, 'somebody got into the house lhat
morning when the little scamp run off to
ride with the minster V
Oh, don't lick me for that ! I've been
licked for that once ; ha'nt I, Ma Duck-;
low!' shrieked Taddy.
The house was searched in vain. No
No clue to .the purloined securities
could be obtained, 'the copies of the
Sunday Visitor,' which had been sub;
stituie- for them, affording not the least
tor that valuable little pnper was found
in almost every household, except Duck
low's. 'I don't see any way left to advertise,
as Josiah said,' said the farmer, with a
deep sigb of despondency.
'And lhat will bring it all !' exclaim
ed Mrs. Ducklow. '11 you only had not
been so imprudent.'
' Wa'l, wal !' said Ducklow cutting her
short. " '
Before resortin to public measures for
the recovery of ihe stolen property, il
was deemed expedient lo accquaint their
friends with their loss in a private way.
The next day, accordingly, went to pay
Reuben a visil. It was a very different
meeting from that which took place a
few mornings before. The returned
soldier had gained in health, but cot iu
spirits, The rapture of reaching home
once more, the flush of hope and happi
ness, had passed away with the visitors
who had flocked to offer iheir congratu
lations. He had had time to reflect ; he
had reached home, indeed ; but now ev
ery moment reminded how soon lhat
home was to be taken from him. He
looked at his wife and children, and
clenched his teeth hard to stifle the emo
tions that arose at tha thonght of their
future. The sweet serenity, the faith
and patience and carerfuluess, wihch
never ceased to illumine Sophrone So-
pronia's face as the moved about the
house, pursuing her daily task3, and ten
derly waiting upon him, deepened at
his love and his solicitude. He was
watching her thus when ihe Ducklow's
entered with countenances mournful as
How are you gittin' along, Reuben ?'
said Ducklow, while hi3 wife murmur
ed a solemn 'good morning to Sophro
nia. . 'I am doing well enough. Don't be
at all concerned about raa !. It ain't
pleasant to lie here, and feel it may be
months, months, befote I am able to be
about my business ; but I would not mind
it, -I could stand it first rate, I could
stand anything, anything, but to see her
working her life out for me and tha
childred ! To no purpose, either ; the
worst of it. We shal have to loose this
place, spite of fate !'
Oh, Reuben !' said Sophronia, haste
ning to him, and laying her soothing
hand upon his hot forehead ; 'why won't
you stop thinking about that? Do try
to have mooe faith ! We shall be taken
care of. .
If I had three thousand dallars yes,
or even two then I would have faith !'
To b continued.
