BY J. vr.
It was a pleasant Tittle place, a story
frul a lia,lf liiirh only. lmt. uprenil out
over a great deal of ground. There was
a big velvety lawn in front, with half a
lozen beech-trees that had stood there
for a hundred years magnilieent old
trees as ever cast their shadows on a
Summer's day. There was old-fashioned
flowers, and an old-fashioned rope-f-wing,
a well with a veritable mossy
oaken bucket; there were plenty of veg
etables in the little kitchen garden,
ogs fresh every day, and all the milk
that was wanted.
it is the very place for you," Laura
Ileketh said, with a happy, eager look
in her dark eyes.
And Sir. Hartley smiled back at her,
with that look a man gives a pretty
girl whom he admires.
I shall decide upon it, then. The
situation is good, the terms reasonable,
anil the lamtly is ?"
Laura laughed, showing her pretty
'Ali:tle, ugly old maid, but just as
nice as she can be."
Mr. Hartley afl'eeted a horrified scowl
and he'ped iliss llesketh into the car
A very picturesque plaoe. indeed, I
am glad jou fpoke of it to me. I will
drive over rgain when Mis Cartwright
id at home, and make the necessary ar
ranireTv.eiits." Wiiieii '-arrangements" were that in
eonsii'e; alion of four puinens a week,
Mr. Hart ey was to have Miss Cart
wri.iit's t-.vo' front rooms for himself
and his li-tic motherless children, and a
room in the attic for their nure.
It was a perfect Godseud to Ile'on
Cartwngi.t "the little, vy old ut!r
thai. 6U0 was tiud vsuea tae knelt he
si le her bed that niht. she ofered her
thankful gladness that Mr. Hartley had
come to smooth her financial road for
For a lodccr w' o r-'1' liberally
meant so much to Helen, who, li vo
years sgo liad lust, in one week, her
mother and father, and the big, htrong
brother, who had been such a tower of
strength to them all. Tl:cre had been
nothing left to iier but the homestead
where s'le had been born and always
lived, and when people had advised her
to frell it, and put the money in the
bank for a rainy day, she indignantly
scorned such counsel.
"No, indeed! A farmer's daughter
ought to -manage a bit of frround as
well as a farmer's son. I'll keep the
place, and in summer I'll take hidgers,
and Larry O Toolo Bhall do my heavy
work for me."
She had prospered fairly until the
last year, so that now, when Mr. Hart
ley came, it was a Godsend to her, and
she went about her pretty, eosey little
Louse as happy ns the day was long.
"An ugly little old maid" that was
what bonny, bright Laura had called
Ler, and George Hartley caught himself
one day watching her, as she went lilt
ting from place to place, in her bisr
white apron and tucked-up sleeves, and
eatiny.-brown hair braided beneath a
brown silk net, both his children trot
tin after her.
es, she was plain, undeniably and
of all things, Mr. Hartley least admir
ed plain little women; but she was good
and she succeeded in making him
"Mr. Hartley is delighted with his
quarters," Laura Iksketh said, one
bright morning, when she dropped
in a moment; snch a radiant vis
ion, in her pale-blue lawn and
pale-pink ribbons, her lovely face
aiiusli, and her eyes shining like stars.
Helen was mixing puff-paste for lem-on-pie;
lemon-pie and rice-pudding was
Mr. Hartley's favorite dessert.
"Is that t,o," Helen laughed, holding
out one short, dimpied arm. inside the
oven, to test its heat. "That's pleasant
to know, and especially from you. Miss
llesketh, for I feel most truly jrrateful
to you for recommending my little nest
to him. He is a great friend of yours,
Laura Ianzhed. and a little crimson
flush wanned her cheek.
"Oh I don't know! Yes, he is a
friend, of coarse. I've known hitn for
over a 7car now. Ilu'a Lnudsjnio, isn't
I think hi
?s the finest looking' r-n-
here? I should think you would prefer
to have him with you at the Hall. '
"You little goose, can't 3-ou under
stand that? Indeed, I don't want him
at home among so manv visitors as we
have already. Helen, I'm so glad he
came here, where there's no temptation
for him to be made a dead set at. A.
handsome. . rich widower is a great
catch. Here he's safe you see."
She certainly did not mean anything
cruel, but it touched little plain Helen
as nothing had ever hurt her. And,
proud little woman aa sho was, she sud
denly had to rush to tho pantry for
more sugar to hide the tears she felt
coming to her eyes.
Mr. Hartley was safe at her house.
Yes, she was too old, too plain, too de
cidedly an old maid to be dangerous to
any man's peace of mind. It was all
true, and she had known it all her life,
but somehow, it occurred to her as nor
Little, and plain, and old, but with a
woman's heart beating warm and
6trcngthful in her bosom; and, some
how, Laura Ilesketh's rare beauty
seemed the most desirable possession in
all the world, because with it such love
and devotion and admiration could be
won. She thrust the foolish thought
away from her, and came back, her
6ti!rar-crock in her hand.
"Do you bathe every day, Laura?"
she 6aid they had known each other
from childhood, and in spite of social
inequality, were on very familiar terms.
"I heard 'the children say tho water was
delightfully warm to-day."
'Yc go down every day why don't
you go, Helen? Can't you go wi'th us at
'four o'clock to-day? "Mr. Hat ley's go
ing, and mamma, and Archie."
"I rather think not," sho said. "I
want to make a pasty for tea the
cl.il iren are so fond of it, and I promis
ed it for to-night."
"15ut the children can be disappoint
ed for once you must go Miss Cart
wright," and George Hardy stepped in
to the big, shady kit. hen.
Laura gave him a rapturous glance
of weleo:ue, and Helen laughed a little
"i hope fiat I am not intruding; or
that this delicious, old-fashioned room
is firbidden ground?"
Helen pointed to a chair.
"Sit down, Mr. Hartley," she said,
and then went on vv ith her pastry, while
he and 'Laura chatted and laughed.
And ended by taking Helen's consent
to go with them bathing.
She never knew quite, how it all hap-
ened none of them knew but littlo
thel managed to separato herself from
the others, and the lirst thing anyone
knew, was that the child was scream
ing, and being borne out by the break
ers, and that Helen had plunged in af
ter her, entirely oblivious of the
fact that she was Hot much more able to
fight the heavy seas than tho child.
"There was a little consternation, a
shriek or so from Laura, an exclama
tion of something not perfectly intelligi
ble from Mr. Hartley, a prompt com
mand to Laura's big brother, Archie,
and then, shortly after, little Ethel and

and the next tiling Helen knew, she
was on her own sofa, in her little sitting
room, with the sound of Laura's and
her mother's voices in th nv-rt room
and Mr. Hartley's handsome, anxious
C3-es looking down into her face, as he
sat beside her.
"Helen," he said, in a low, breath
less sort of way, as she looked wonder
ingly at him. "Helen, ray brave little
darling thank God I saved you for
myself, didn't I?"
She suddenly began to cry what did
he mean? Was it a dream a tantaliz
"Helen," the low passionate voice
went on, "if you had died I think I
should have died, too. I meant to have
told you this very day how I have learn

my bles ed little wife, if you can caro
enough for me to come to me. Can you,
Helen? Do you, dear?"
And even Laura llesketh could not

Albert W.'llF, or.e of his friends auj

ro. relay's how he and some of his com

e'op at tii- ir hotel at Et.ctat, organized
a i:-iump!i:d reception in his honor. A
collodion of anrs an T cost times belong

arrangements wero made to receive the
composer wit !i a salute from two small

Milk Diet for Heart-Disease.
M. Fotain at the recent meeting; of th
French Association for the Advance
ment of Science, read a paper on thi3
subject. Milk is particularly efficacious
in secondary cardiac affections, as hy
pertroyhy or simple dilatation of a gas
tric or rental origin. The diet modilies
the conditon of the kidney and stomachr,
because it give these organs almost
complete rest; therefor to be thoroughly
efficacious it should be absolute and
more or les3 prolonged. It may be use
fully employed in cases of simple reflex
palpitation of gastric origin. It may
also bo advantageously used for iLs diu
retic action in dropsy, especially, and
perhaps exclusively, when the dropsy
is of renal orisrin.
In case of a gent.eman wishing to
marry literally in the market with his
heart he wears a plain or chased gold
ring iqion his fore tinker of the left (or
heart) hand. When success attends his
suit and he is actually engaged, the ring
passes to the third linger. If, however,
the gentleman desires to tell the fair ones
that he not only is not "in the market,"
but does not design to marry at all, ho
wears the signet upon his little linger,
and all ladies may understand that ho
is ofit of their reach. With the fair sex
the "laws of the ring" are: A plain or
chased ring on little ringer of the right
hand implies "not engaged" orin plain
words, "ready for proposals sealed, or
otherwise." When engaged Te riDg
passes to tho lir-it finger of tlie lelt
hand. When married the tuird finger
receives it. . If the fair ono who ro

Furnas County Items.
Beaver City, J;in. 3d. 1831.
1 see by occasional notices in tho
11 eh alu that you read our county
papers, and as they give very nearly
correct statements in regard to our.
condition, nepds, Ai, it Is h-u Mf'TIt-c-s.ii
y tor me to mention those things,
lui ther than to say that there seems
te be an erroneous idea east in regard "
to our failure of crops hist season.
Many persons and papers speak of
this region as a barren waste whero
failures were the rule, and a goop crop
the except iuti to it. This is entirely
wrong. The extremely dry winter
and spring of 'Til aud '80 continued
up to J tine 24th, so that no crops could
be put in the ground in the usual ea
soii and manner, consequently a largo
majority of the people had given up
the hope ef raising anything and.
made other puma. A few of us
who did not know innvh about farm
ing sli)eU at iiotuu working away, and
as soon as the lams came planted all
we could. J he result is that we have if
enough of eveij thing to carry us
through the win lei, except wheat. t
But what. 1 Mauled lo s.ty is, that the
oldest inhabitants tell us such u spring
had never been known brluie, and '
uon'l expect It in the luluio; at least
is no uiuie likely lo occur lu te than in
any olner puit ot the Uuiied Slates. y
