When Charles Piatt ami Mary Dean
wet married the.' liail just three dol
lars :n hand wherewith to begin life.
( harlcs was clerk in :i '-general store"
in :i small inland town. Mary was a
. i iioMP rti?tr in tHRin. i i
lia. vt liCJTcs. i - .- .... -.
fanner's daughter who had taught dis
trict school lor a li'.in. They wero
now both urph'tns. and, having known
each other for many years', had irown
into love, rather than fallen into it,
nnd were of the Mime mind that it was
better to be happy together, than tm
So Mary laid out her small F.ivinjrs in
cheap furn.ture for two rooms, a few
di lie, a ;ood store of undere'othes,
two calico dresses and a merino; and
(."harlcs 'pent his on a stove, a clock,
an ingrain carpet, a good bed for the
bed-room stul a suit of Sunday clothes;
lhi- lcltlhem, as 1 said, three dollars;
for Charles' salary was only jut in
creacd to such small extent as made
his muriage possible.
In this little town of Durham all the
children in their early lives went to
school together, and grew up friends as
Jaras their natural traits permitted;
but some of the wealthy nianiifacltfcr.s
and professional men, when their som
a-id laughters grew older, sent them to
the county town or even farther, for
betUr education ami more polish than
tl c cott'd ub'a'n at home.
hen Charles ami Mary were nvir
ried and came into church the lir.st
tin.e one November day thoy were
nodded at and smiled to by many a
kindly face, and more than one young
rrlof-herown ajio ran her eves over
arv's bridal attire in a way not alto
gether pleasant to the bride; and she
heard more than one whisper: 'Noth
ing but a blue merino!"'
Mary was a sensible girl, it is true,
lnit she was a girl still, and she felt hot
and uncomfortable. She would have
liked a silk dress, but .she could not buy
one, and her mother s earnest advice to
her from the tune she first earned a
tent had been: Don't spend money
mmi haven't got, Mary, or you'll buy
There were a good manj-wSr things
that were hard to bear S'Jy they
seemed the harder bceausc sTri'rftovcrty
was mutual. She could not go out
evenings, for Charles was busy in the
store. She had to give up her girlish
frolics of nutting, rowing on the lake,
be.ning, and all such things, because
ho had her work to do; and she knew
ad the t'me that her husband needed
a:r and exercise even more than she
did. One afternoon, in such a miod,
she picked up her sunbonnet, put her
work into her apron, and ran o.it to sec
an old neighbor, a poor lame woman
horn she liad known all her life, and
whose greatest pleasure was to have
people come in to see her, since she
could necr get out to i-eo them.
1 didn't teel over and above chcrk.
Aunt roily," she said, "so I thought
I'd run hf ami have a talk with you."
"Dear me'." saul Aunt Polly, "1
thought you looked as bright as a butter-cup,
Mary; a1 n't 3-011 well?"
"Yc, 1 am alwas well."
"What a thing to be thankful for!"
said Aunt Tollywith a lialf-sigli.
"Hut sometime? 1 get down-hearted.
nunt3; we're so poor, and so shut up,
somehow. 1 can't get out evenings,
for Charley can't leave the store, and I

ire's work to UO m3 wuu worKiug so mwu, swan..:;
fed furnish them, but she
icomo tnan tno mtcu
had hands and licjrt full
w. but strength came with is neon.
Sho missed most of all her weekly even
ing meeting, but she lived so near the
church she could still hear the old iweet
liymns float over, and, on Sundays,
tharles took care of baby while sho
went to her Sunday-school class, and
on alternate Sundays they went, one or
the other, to church. hatcver Mary
gave in charity was as the widow's jnite
to her, for she was sorel3 pinched for
tho real needs of life. She could, and
did, give away mended and faded gar
ments; stockings she knit "between
day'light and dark;" some food to the
absolutely' starving, some small delica
cies to the sick poor; time to visit the
lonely, the sad and the ailing she also
gave, for she could carry her ba'iy
along, and found over and over again
that the bright, unconscious face. tne in
nocent smile, the unsympathetic calm
and sweetness of tho child, did really
more "jood to sick or sufferer than her
own words or feeling. Her life was 2.
quiet, her opportunilies so small, thai it
ran on like a hidden brook in a meadow
whose course you only trace by the
greener and stronger grasses that con
ceal it. Yet there was not a
sick or sad person who did not
want to sec Mary Piatt, and her hap-P3'-
laugh dd "good like medicine'"
wherever it was heard. After several
years they were able to take a 1 ttle
house to themselves, and from its gar
den, sole'y Mary's care, came tho lir-t
strawberries, the freshest radishes, the
crispest lettuce, not only toad 1 to their
own meals but to share "with the neigh
bors, and the one early apple trcu that I
shaded her kitchen door was a l)icss.n
to everybody who liked the fiuit.
" Give, and it shall be given unto you,"
was abundantly realized; when, time
after time, the de'icate b-iby .sickened
and fought its way back to life again
with a tenae.ty babies only poshes,
watchers were always rcatly to tako the
mother's place at night, dainty food
sent in, every k. miners that country
neighborhoods can show lavished upon
hr. for all her neirubo had some
debt of kind.jcss to pa3'.
Then her cellar never was empty, for
one would send her a barrel of applet
another a bushel of potatoes, and still
another a few parsnips, a head or two
of cabbage, a jug of cider vinegar. " 1.
never aw such good poop ein my I fo,'
she s.iil once to Ch.irb-s, with tears in
her eves; "the)'' re alwas doing some
thing for us."
"Mrange, a" n't it?" sa'd Charles,
smiling with a queer smile, but ho said
no tiK-ru he knew very well why they
were so kind, but 1 e would not tell
Marv he loxeil het with all Irs heart,
but he was too shy to praise her, a tcr
the reticent Now Kngla id fash. on.
So tho days parsed, carrying with
them their little cares and little pleas
ures; and Cuarlcs and Mary found th.it
if their 1 fe was not all sunshine, tho
suush no which did come into it was all
tho sweeter because of the occasional
shadow. The tastes of neither were
expenshe: the)' did not pine after lux
uries hieh they could rot afford, and
were . e content with thee en course
of their quiet home life.
After a while Charles fell ill of a
fecr. and the ctr.i necessities of sick
ness brought them into de'it; this was a
real trouble to Mary; to J.vo all going
out and nothing coming in seemed hard
to her; her husband was not danger
ously ill, but he coti'd not work; it was
four long months before he resumed his
place in the store, and thcj- were almost
two hundred dollars in debt- Hut
Mary's cheerful faith and courage held
up her husband in this str lit. If sho
was troub'ed he never I new it; she took
in what sewing she could get, sold her
vegetables and ft nit to the tavern
keeper, instead of giving them ai',
and mei.d-'d the old clothes for them
selves inle-id pf the poor about them;
for6he knew well justice is better than
generosity. Slowly, a'tnost cent bv
cent, sho laid up a few dollars, and
applied them in these small sums
to their debts. Charles camo homo
one n'ght in a desponding mood
enough; he had been dunned by the
village apolheeary for his bill, and
though he did not mean to tell Maty,
she soon coaved out of him the sojret
of his weary fa-c and aching head; she
heard his story silently, and then went
to tho drawer where her coin accu
mulated, a-id brought out with the little
box a bundle of bills for she had ox-
acted a receipt for even the smaPest
sum paid in and now out ot dimes,
quarters, five cent pieces, hero and
there a dollar-bill, she counted out ten
dollars, and, running over what she
had already paid on ae .tint, found
they were but live dollars in debt when
that ten should bo paid. The dntgg'st
was a careless man. and. caircr foi
moncv. had irono to Charles with a bill

A Valuable Secret.
It is related of Franklin that, from the
window of his office in Philadelphia, ho
noticed a mcchauic, among a number
of others, at work on a house which
was being erected close by, who always
appeared to be in a merry humor, and
who had a kind and cheerful smile for
every one he met. Let the day be ever
so cold, gloomy or sunless, tho happy
smile danced like a sunbeam on his
cheerful countenance. "Meeting him
one dav, Franklin requested to know
the secret of his constant happy flow of
It's no secret. Doctor," the man re

things through the day to please me,
that I cannot find.it in my heart to

The experiments at Amherst seem to
show, and 1 think correctly, that the
frequent stirring of the surface of culti
vated fields is" beneficial in resisting
the etl'eets of drought. The moisture
ascends by capillary attraction through
very small, hair-like tubes, and by cul
tivating tho surface these tubes are
broken and filled up. and a largo part
of the moi'dure is stopped and ictaiucd
just where the roots of the growing crop
can best appropriate it. The portion
of the soil wlii h has been stirred is. of
course, dryer for I lie stirring; but the
moisture it would haie held if undis
turbed, and much more which would
have pas-ed through it into the atnios
pheto. is just be'oiv. The-o facts seem
to indicate the importance in dry times
of not working the soil too deeply, but
of keeping the dr.nking supply where it
will do the most good. Probably two
inches would bo deep enough; perhaps
one would be better. How often l
would pav, or how often bo beneficial
to work the surface, I cannot say. The
cubic foot boes of earth, whose surface
was thoroughly stirred every day to a
depth of four inches, retained a com
paratively large amount of moisture,
which, in tho boxes of undisturbed soil,
in a week of drought, was lost by evap
oration. Had it been st rred to a less
depth, the saving might havo been
greater. Dew is deposited from water
evaporating from the earth, and not
from dcicending moisture, as was
formerly supposed. The iii mjng of tiie
surfaeoabove seeds planted in a dry
time, as advocated by Mr. Henderson,
makes tho seed bed more moi-t, bo
cause the air and the lieai cannot so
easily penetrate; and also by bringing
the ton soil in closer contact with the

Examine a field which has been
plowed and planted only a few drv
lavs, and the soil of the foot priuts will
bo" found much more moist than tho
loose earth ucar it. Level culture is
also better than hill culture, as tho sun
and air strike a smaller surface; and
the rain is absorbed more equally thau
where it runs into the spaces between
the rows; while, if the land is sloping,
in heavy rains Imsg spaces become
chaunels for tho wafer to run down
hill. In case of tho potato I think the
more level tho culture, especially on
dry soils, the better. Put the seed
must be planted deep enough to insure
plenty of room for the crop to grow
without partial exposure at the surface.
The seed can be put well down in anv
soil tit for the purpose, as new potatoes
nover form below the level of the seed.
Plant in drills instead of hills, not put
ting the seed too close, and if the rows
make no use of the ashes produced 111
