I went to live xvilh Aunt LJmonton
when poor papa died. That xvas hall s
doen year-j ago, yet my tivtihie pccp.is as
lush to-day, my lesj irreparable as on
that teiiibio moiiiir,- when I left him
1 ino; in his lonely jjravc u:iuer the Avil
low.s. Poor papa! how foud xve were of each
other, lis: had no one iu the xvorlu but
me. JIainnia died when 1 was a wee
baby, not quite two ummcr3 old died
away oh in Southern France, ami the
sleeps there now under the shadows of
the purple vine hills.
1 have seen many fair women, but
never a faee half so lovely as hers. Her
portrait used to hapo- ju tin; oid gallery at
i'dtuontuti Hall, but it is gone now. Aunt
Kiinionton had .soii.jihi;sjto do with its
disappearance, 1 tiunk, lor she never
like. I my mother.
The LVan ritons are an o'.d, proud race,
with a pedlo;ec running back, to the cavi
llers, au 1 e.a ancient cret on their mas
sive o.d tl:er, and the Liu-nst of blue
blood in their an'.cratic veins. At least
Alli.t Kd...o. :'(..i :;ys fc ).
I'ajia Hi'.v..ys .au ;v.l athcrhih fancies,
and h id i.:;.t !,.' hoitcst sual wasr.i good
as anoiie i, i. matter xvlielhtr iis owner
wore i'---v.il ,.t; 'j;ie or hoilden giav; and
! when i;e lo t mv pretty mamma, and
i loved h.-i, i.j d'd not lii'f-itate about mak
jug h i !..s w i.e th'iug!i she va 2(-'UI1usa
Ui..i a isuiigiKci- ot tne people.
A.iiit Kiirn- :ito.i was terribly angered,
an I when t!u juetty bridj came home to
Edmonton Had, the met her with scowl
ing biuws, tuJ h-l such a life that papa
6'ji-;i took Iier abio.iv!, nul there she died
e.ud was Luried a fuv short months after
I'ap never outlived his grief at her
loss, he loved her dead r.s tenderly as he
had loved iier living, and chc.iahed uveas
no other child ever was cherished. I gievv
uj in hii bosom; he w;.s my teacher, com
panion and friend. XV'c were never sepa
rated. What a blissful life we led, I3o!:cniians
though wc were! "Whither our fancy- led
us, there we pitched ourteul, unUr sunny
Southern skies, in the solemn shadow of
time-l'ained ruins, by the margin of sto
ried livers. 1 was cradled on the great
deep, and i eared amid the classic wealth
of foreign lands.
Hut a time crrnt by papa's health grew
feeble, and we came home to LMuionton
"Jail; and I here he died.
I left the dear oid Southern home and
his grave under the drooping willow?, and
went to live with Aunt Edmonton.
As I have s:dd, Aunt Kdmonton, was a
proud woman. She was more a world
ly one. Wealth was her IMoloch, and
she he'd no heart ttcasjr? too precious
to be given as an o tiering to his liery em
brace. I was an Edmonton as well as herself,
and despite the disgincn of my pretty
mamma's n'.i'-n blood, J could not be put
to household drudgery. Hence I was in
slalled as a sort of companion, to read
Ilaiziii: and George Sand, while my Aunt

and keep the point lace in order, and
the family jewels well l.urni.-h"d. Not a
laborious task and it brought me bread

though our hearts break and our souls
Aunt Edmonton did not like the old
lu.ll. She declared frankly that tin old
liou-e w-rs better suited for bats and owls
than for human beings, and it was shut
up, and we lived first in one gay city and
then another, and finally crossed the sea
and went to l'atis.
Dear me, how my Aunt and "Margue
rite did enjoy the life they led there, and
how 1 pined and longed for home? It is
a marvel how diJlerently constituted peo
ple arc, with the same blood in their veins,
''Belle," said my aunt, one autumn
night, when preparations were going on
for some famous ball, "will you have the
kindness to goto tlic green-house, and cut
the flowers for Marguerite's hair. She
wears natural flowers to-night, and I can't
trust to Felice. Look at her dress, please,
and select what you think will suit your
taste is perfect."
Margucrito threw away her novel, and
shook down her black tresses as I was
leaving the room.
"Belle, don't fail to cut some helio
trope, please. Captain Canuthers is
here, and he dotes on Heliotrope. By
the bv, you remember Carruthers don't
My foolish heart gave a sudden thump,
and the tell-tale blood rushed to my
chc'k. How well I remembered him !

I remembered his parting irords too,
when he left me standing beside tho new
made grave under the eld willows.'
"No words of mine can give you any
comfort now, Belle, but time heals the
sorest wound. I regret to le.ive you, but
my iegi.llent goes abroad to-morrow.
Good-bye. One day, please Heaven, I
hops- to meet you again.
But in all the dreary following rears I
, bail lerd u wnvd from him.
"You remember him of course," con
tinued my handsome cousin; "he used to
fie at the hall a gret deal in your father's
time? XVell, wo met him last right at
the reception.. He's been here a week;
and he's" a millionaire, Belle. Yon know
old Canuthers, of Carruthcr's Place? Ha
is dead, and the Captain inherits the for
tune, you see. So don't forget the helio
trope. I know it isn't becoming purple,
of all colors suits my cnole complexion
best but I remember what a fancy C'ur
ruthere always had for heliotrope, and he's
worth pleasing, you know."
Aunt-Edmonton laughed as the arose
and shook out her lace flounces.
"Wear thtj heliotrope, by all means,
Kite, but you naed not feel a bit anxious.
You secured the Captain and his fortnne
hist night; that rose siik and diamonds
did the work. I never saw a man more
infatuated, Well, he's a good match.
I've not a word to s?iy against it ; no bet

and Carruthtrs l'laeo is a grand oid
liome. Ah, there's his carriage below now,
111 go down until you are ready. Do

would be obliging enough to do up Kite's
hair this eveniug; you are so much more
skillful than Fe,ice. And look over the
jewel please; I think that pearl and opal
set will match her dress,"
I hurried down to the greenhouse.
Heart-ache was no new sensation, but
somehow my pain seemed intolerable tn
I made my way dowu the dim aisle, of
gorgeous tropic blossoms stilling me with
their rank odoii.
I forgot Kite's fiowers, forgot her wait
ing toilet, forgot everything but my own
sun'cring. An alloc tree in full blossom,
sitting alone like some weird necroman
cer caught my eye, and 1 sunk down at
its root; and burst into tears.
I seemed to see papa's grave, covered
with yellow Autumn leaves. 1 heard the
wash of the waves, the murmur of tho
pine trees. Tne bustle of the gas-lit
stieets drove me to frenzy.
"This life is killing me; I must go
home to the old hail, and papa's grave."
A hand touched my arm as the words
broke from my lips.
"1 beg your pardon, madam; you seom
in disticss. Can 1 heip Good Heaven!
Belle, is it you?"
"Captain Carrnth .'is 1"
I leaped to my feet, and we stood face
to lace. He was bronzed and bearded,
but the frank, kind eyes were unchanged.
A wild impulse sei.ed upon me to ctasp
his hands, and tell him how lonely and
friendlos I was; but woi.ir.n's prid;,
stronger even than woman's love, stiiLd
the desire at its verv birth. I bowed
"Why, Belle, you haen"t changed ; on
ly you look worn and sad. 1 am so glad
to meet you. I have written again and
again, until 1 fancied you were dead.
How is it that I find you Icre in Paris.''

the following day, mj" aunt summoned
mc to Iier presence.
"You need not read fo-day, Belle; I
want to talk to you. You met Captain
Carruthers in the greenhouse last night?"
"Yes, by accident.'
Aunt Edmonton toyed with tho tassels
of her morning robe, and for the f.rst time
to my knowledge, showed signs of embar
rassment. "By accident, of course! I didn't sup
pose you mistook my meaning, my dear.
He's a line, handsome fellow, ami he end

"Vou tiioUL.ht you would send me
home, Aunt Edmonton? Pray do." I
meant to ask permission to go this very
day 1 am dreadfully homesick."
She iaughed genially, and, crossing t!i 3
room, Kissed me with mine kindness than
she had ever shown.
"Then you shall have permission, my
dear. Mrs. Montague, an old friend of
mine, leaves Palis to night, and you shall
go under her charge.'
I went, leaving giddy Paris behind me
with a feeling of iu.'injt.ii relief.
But when I reached the old home how
desolate it was. Winter came, and the
white snow HI led the hollows and crown
ed the southern hills. Letters from Aunt
Edmonton informed me that they wcieia
Home, with Captain Curruthers as escort,
anil hinted at a great wedding when
Spring came. Did I care? X nat wai
Captain Carruthers to me? My father's
friend, and I must al way s regard him with
gratitude; anil Marguerite would make
him a stately, beautiful bride. 1 wished
them much joy.
Yet through all the lonesome winter
days and niohts my heart-ache never
ceased or abated.
Spring came, and the skies grew soft
and lender. The snows melted, h avi.ig
the hills green and the tunny hollows
sweet with violets.
One M.iieh morning I went out to rake
tiie 'lower-beds. Tin; hyacinths and but
teicups were already above the mold, and
here and there a green tulip-leaf could be
seen. The winds blew warm from the
far south, the sunshine glimmered like
gold, and in one of the willows over papa's
grave a bluebird s ing.
I threw aside my rake, and sat down to
cry, not in hopeless sorrow, but in new
A step crunched the gravel of the walk,
a tall shadow fed athwart the glimmer
ing sunshine. I started to my leet.
"Good morning. Miss Edmonton.
"11; ray auut cuuief
"No; I left her in Venice."
"And you why are you here?'
The kind eyes smiled down upon me
full of sail reproach.
"To say good by at once. Belle, if my
company isn't wanted. My regiment is
off again, but I couldn't go without hav
ing one last look at your face."
The blood in my heart seemed to burn
ia my cheeks.
"Miss Edmonton, if you please."
-very wen, Mus Edmonton, then, if
you admire it ".otter. We were friendi

"1 have never asked her have never

1 could not for my life say no.
"i thought you were engaged to Mar
guerite. 1 was sure "
"Von thought wrong. Marguerite is a
Hue woman, and she marrks a title this
Summer. My darling, I have loved no
woman but you."
How tiie March sunshine glittered,
what notes of delight the bluebird sang,
swinging in the oid trees. The whine
univcr.se seemed to have undergone a sud
den transformation, and my heart ache
became a forgotten thing of she past.
A r h(Mt time ;igo a little boy went
with bis father to see a colt. He pat
ted the colt's head, and made quite a
fuss over it, until finally the stable-men
told him to be careful that the colt
did not turn round and kick hiin.
When the little chap xvent home his
mother asked him what he thought
about Ihecolt. "llike him pretty well,"
was the reply. "He's real tamo in

Kichards was extremely jocular over
the result, and one t,f his expressions
of humor was remarkable un-lcr the

"Say, judge, iend rue a quarter."
Judge Gaslin surprised, asked what
he wanted it for, and this most devilish
of all devils replied:
'Well you see I only have a quarter,

As to the value of the artichoke as food
for su hie and sh-ep and milch cows, it is
pr-ibnb.y no; mi; erior to any other root or
tuber that swine, sheep and cows will eat
with the same relish say in the c;ue of
cows and sheep, par.-nips and carrots but
it is so much hardi -r, so nnie'i more
cheaply and easily grown, that in dry or
het climates wli -ie the summers tire of
that character, a hundred bushels of arti
chokes can be raised with 1 's labor and
expense than ten bushels of any one of
the other cattle-feeding roots or tubers.
Indeed, five summers iu ten, it is quite
out of the question to make a crop of tur
nips, mangels, carrots or parsnips 111 ma- j
ny ot the ."-dates ol the south anil west;
but the artichoke '-being native here, and
to the manor born," seems comparatively
indilferviit to climate, and is as sure a
crop as gi'Mss, wheat or Indian corn.
As for the merits of the red and white,
there is verv little iliiVcrence. Experience,
I however, gained in 1S77. shows the white
to Ini more vigoron.3 and producing the
largest yield. From our present inform
ation, w'j say that if our readers raise or
own cow?; svvinc or sheep, and are located
in a situation or 0:1 a soil where many or
all of the ordinary root crops are apt to
fail, or are raised with great ditliculty, we
contidently recommend to them the Jeru
salem artichokeas a j ajing and piotitable
ci op, ami especially where Indian corn
lias been a nearly exclusive food used for
fJ. tttaing purpose. ll"ne. nu-.l Ftirt.

Cement for Cracked Hoofs'.
Mr. Delay has discovered a preparation,
by means of which sand cracks or frac
ture in hoof or horn may be durably ce
mented up. Even pieces of iron can be.
securely joined together by its means.
Tiie wiij- precaution necessary foi its .suc
cessful application is the cartful removal,
of all grease by spirits of sal nmmonia,
sulphide cf carbon or tther. Mr. Delay,
makes no secret of its composition, which
is as follows: Take one part of coarsely
powdered gum-anunoniacum ami two
parts gutta-percha, in pieces the size of a
hazelnut, l'ut them iu a tin-lined vessel
over a slow liie, and stir constantly until
thoroughly mixed. Eefore the thick re-,
j bilious mass gels cold, moid it into slicks
li te selling wax. The cement wilt keep,
for years, and when reputed for use it is.
only ui ccs.-.'uy to cut oil" a sutlicient qtun-.
tity and rc-in" It it immediately before ap
plication. Fitgliih Live Stuck Journal.
