A drowsy summer afternoon hung
over the dainty little village of Mays
vllle, nestling among the green Con-
netlcut hills. The leaves or the clus
tering vines framing the pretty white
cottages just stirred in the suushlnc.
while even the bees and butterflies
crept to shelter In the hearts of the

"Mrs. Wells! That does beat my

Now, I dare say, if one really knew,
ehe spends just three times as much."
"Iso, she doesn't, nor in fact any
more than you ao.Tr
"Oh, nonsense! How do you get
over the four bonnets, and the dresses
and fancy furbelows one always sees
about her?" The little matron shook
: her head sagaciously. "No, no, Mrs.

there were two days lost just going
and comlr at the time I was most
wanted. I tired myself almost to
death Ioklne for something reason

est to my means. I thought It would
do well enough till I got home, and
Mrs. Weil3 called on me next day
vlth4he very lovliest bonnet on her
iHtaa i .ever saw. - it never cosi less
than twenty-live dollars in the city.

"I know all about It It didn't cost
but six dollars, - and it didn't come

' "iflx dollars ! You must be dream

ationj could any one get such a bonnet
in Maysville? Then, again, when I
was in the city I saw a dress some
thing lika that blue merino of Susie
Wells' everybody liked so much. I
thought I'd enough left to buy It for
1 Ada. I knew the stuff wasn't more
than fourteen shilling a yard, and it
takes Just four yards; but besides,
; there was the making and trimming.
I went in and priced it It was eigh
i tn dollars," -
"And Busle Wells cost her mother
only about nine."
"That beats me out and out Where
does she go to get such bargains ?"
"Not very often out of Maysville."
"Why, I never see them. When I
po to Miss Smith for .anything new,
most likely it's some notion she's bor
'. rowed from the Wellscs. I do believe
they set the fashions for this village
for dressmakers and all."
"Well, Mrs. Wells can do it if she
likes, for the truth is she has a sure
g-uide, .This is the secret" :
"Do tell I" euspendinff her work to
"Yes, and what's more, Mrs. Wells
doesn't buy half those new things

' "Oh I it's all in gumption, then. I

"No, not that alone. I went down

'Why, how is that?' said 1. .'Because
'I make every penny tell, and Just be

and a pound foolish ; but you have

cst's Monthly Magazine. That is the
aid, counselor, and helpmate I've
been telling you of.' "
At this juncture Mrs,Jrowu cliaw
ced to glance out of the window. "I
have jitt finished my t-tonr in time,"
said she, her voice subsiding. "There
is Mrs. Wells coming up the garden
path ; vou shall have her own testi
Bonnet and mantle disposed of, and
work in hand, the new-comer was pre
pared fortheconsultation by an active
rehersalarom Mrs. Brown of a portion
of herxnvn and her" neighbor's recent
discourse. Mrs. Wells' entrance had
been the signal for the resolving of
the several little groupes of talkers in
to a general conversation. Not a few
listened anxiously for her sentence up
on Mrs. lirown's narrative. ,
- "I am quite prepared -to endorse all
I said yesterday," returned slie at its
conclusion, ' smilingly surveying ' her
auditors, "and 1 can even say more.
Mrs. Brown kindly complimented me
yesterday upon the arrangements of
my table, and more than one of you
praised the trifles in the way of pastry
and other refreshments I contributed
to: the refreshment tablo of our last
year's, fair. . The household depart
ment of the Magazine was my guide;
it is especially devoted to items of in
terest to housekeepers. You have seen
such practical illustrations of the val
ue of its various receipts, that I need
scarcely dwell upon it."
"Whero..did you learn of the exU
tencecf your oracle?" qneationed Mr.
"I read ofitinthe village paper."
"Oh, we don't take that."
"Not take the Maysville Times t
I'm surprised. WThy, it's to every
ene's interest to take the local papers.
Yoi get your money's worth over and
over. " I bhould as lief be out of. the
world as be without the news. My
husband saj's he sets as much store by
them as I do by my Demorest's Month
ly. That must have been the reason
why Mr. Wells did so much better by
his grain and hay than Mr. Hart.
You see he had the advantageof know
ing how to sell, and when and where
to lind a good customer, and all this
through the paper, while neighbor
Hart, even though he's quite as
shrewd at bargaining, had to trust to
luck after all. Mr. Wells says he
finds so many items of use to him
about gardening, and there are tbe
quotations from the cily markets. It
won't do to trust to hearsay. You
want a reliable, source for such infor
mation. We watch the paper, and
are generally just about right for a
very good sale. Just make a trial of
it, and if you don't confess that you
wonder how you ever did without it,
I'll pay the cost of your nubscription."
Before any one could reply there
was a slight stir at the doorway, and
the next moment a chorus of voices
welcomed the good shepherd of the
Maysville flock among hi people, v-
"W hat have you there?" said Jen
nie Kip, -the pott and bcllepar excel
lence of the village, as, after the greet
ings were over, the reverend gentle
man sat dotvn before tho table and be
gan divesting a small packet he had
carried of its wrapping.
"Somcthingthat I fancied might be
of use and interest to you ladies in the
pursuance of your Kood work ; De
morest's Monthly Magazine.1' There
was a rapid interchange . of glances
among the needle-workers.
"I thought you disapproved of light
reading," ventured Miss Kip, mis
chievously. ' . : ; " "
, "So I do, except when, like the lit
erary department of this Magazine, it
is instructive, entertaining, and cal
culated to exert a strong moral influ
ence over our minds; This Monthly
is a great favorite at the parsonage.- I
am a regular subscriler, for I scarcely
think we could do without it. What
I presume might be of special service
now, was this department of fashions,
about which I know but little, but
which my wife affirms alwaj-s con
tains the most valuable suggestions
resjxcting wearing apparel."
"I have just- been testifying to that
before you came In," remarked Mrs.
Wells. "And I remember a recom
mendation from a friend of mine in
Greenfield. Her husband is a builder,
and she writes me he is lauding the
Architectural Department of the Mag
azine. He considers this feature alone
renders it valuable, because its plans
and diagrams are good and adaptable.
My children hail its appearance quite
as gladly as I do. I read aloud to them
from itsliterary portion, because I find
its general toue so pure and elevating.
I think it a desirable addition to every
household in Maysville."
"And I," chimed in the minister.
"My boys and girls take special de
light in its engravings. It has incul
cated a taste for art among them. I
think its refining , influence, the va
riety it combines, and its neat dress,
render it an ornament for any parlbr
table in tho village."
"Any one of its peculiarities its
full-sized patterns, its braid and cm
broidery sheets, or twelve excellent
sheets of music is worth fair more
than the cost of a year's subscription,"
suggested Mrs. Wells. "And besides
all this, each subscriber receives a val
uable premium." .
"I snail subscribe," exclaimed Mrs.
"And I," said her neighbor.
The words were echoed from all
parts of the room.
"Why not make ur a club." suzsres-
ted the pastor, "and give your orders
to Mrs. wells." -"I
should like that very much." re
sumed the latter. "I will tell you
why, frankly. There are great in
ducements offered for this purpose.
For twenty subscriptions at three dol
lars each, while every individual re
ceives a premium, I should come into
possession of a Family Sewing Ma
chine. Such a treasure !"
"You are quite deserving of such a
prize, a3 the first to establish the mer
its of the Magazine here," said several.
In "a few fchort weeks Mrs. Wells' sitting-room
boasted of a sewing-machine,
and each member of the club a
copy of the magazine, v- -
"How do you like it how do you
like it?", asked . the various Mays
ville tes, a3 thev met after this impor
tant event "It has all the virtues

ferg reallv new and accentable ideas.
because they emenate from the actual
depot of the metropolitan modes, and
are not a revised apd far bled-ovor re
hash of old styles. Iti, in truth, an
actual 'mirror of fashions.' - : r
Soon so said all Maysville, except
Miss Smith, who had hitherto been
quite successful in palming off her
antiquated Ttylcs' upon -the villagers,
and who now found, her .-"occupation
gone." - :- i t .? 'i j v :
"What shall Tdo?" saidshr, wring?
ing her hands in despair, to a sympa
thizing, gentle soul, who chanced to
be a member of Mrs. Wells' club.
"I cannot say, unless you tike Dc
inoresCs Mouthly Magazine, when you
will be likely to find suggestions to
help you out of your difficulties, as I
most alwa3's do in my own case. Miss
Smith, you had better think of it."
The result of this counsel was that
Miss Smith sent in her subscription.
Early one bright Monday morning
the good people of Maysville remarked
that a marvelous change had come
over the millinery and dress-making
establishment they had of late Ignored.
"How beautifully, you, have fitted
up, Miss Smith," said her friend, who
had lecn invited to take a look within.
"I've started anew as a branch of
Mme. Demorest's Emporium of Fash
ions, the headquarters of Dcmorctit's
Monthly. I'm very thankful to you
for. moutionin tho Magazine to me,
for you see it has helped me out of ray
"How did j7ou prosper?" asked the
same friend, some time later in the
month, "dropping in" to see if Miss
Smith's hopes had been realized.
:"Oh, I never did so well ! Why, I
can work with so much sutisfaction
to myself and every one of my custo
mers, 'and f have such a variety of
beautilul styles that even the ladies
from the city, boaYding hereabouts,
find all they require."
Time flitted swiftly by, and again
the sewing-circle had met at Widow
"What a vast improvement there
ha3 been in our village since we have
taken DemorcHVs Monthly!11 exclaim
ed Mrs. Brown, during a pause in the
conversation. "Mrs. Hart, did you
take Mrs. Wells' advice and subscribe
for the village paper?"
"Yes, and I piust say, it was just as
she said Mr. 'Hart and I have re
solved never to do without it again.
He' thinks it saves him a great deal
more than his false notion of economy
"That is my opinion of the Maga
zine. Besides we are certainly all
brighter, and better, and happier, and
wiser through its influence. It is the
grneral remark. " There is now one
thing Jor.wiiichXLAve.a great ambi
tion. That is, to make up a club large
enough to get, as a premium, an organ
for the church. I have already set
about it by applying to some of my
friends. I find I have only to show a
copy of the Monthly to convince them
of its merijU.. 4t speaks forituelf, and
they havdbeen so enthusiastic in
their appreciation as to set their
names down upon my list immedi
ately. Will any of you aid me?"
Every voice chimed in assent. As
women always do when they have a
pet project at'heart, they went to work
with, will and energy, and fouud their
taskso easy, that jn a few days the
entiro Bubscriptionwas on its journey
