Tightly drawn, for the air was chill.

The bhlnins nets came tumbling down.
Grandma's room has an oaten floor;

Bare old paintings, a marble cloclc.
Costly hansinss rich and fine.
Her gown was silken. aad folds or lace
Sortly fell round her wrinkled face.
Grandma glanced through the shining pans
Down to the busy street below;
.Ever and on went the tramp of feet.
As the bustling crowd swept to and fro.
But her thoughts flew far from scenes like
To a quiet home "nesth the old elm-trees.
She felt the clear air, sharp with frost:
She saw the maples tinged with gold;
And from the sunny threshing-floor
She heard the laborers talk cl cold;

So, when the hou-e was hushed in sleep,

Grandma sighed: 'The years have flown!

"I suppose she'll have to walk here,"
replied the young wife. "And a9 she

the husband consolingly said. "But I
guess there's nothing to do but to bear
it. Things may not turn out so bad as
you fancy they will."
He cot into the wagon and drove off.
Mrs. Henderson walked into the spring
house to chum the butter. She was
seldom peevish and rarely complained,
but the visit really seemed inopportune.
She was not very strong, and as she
worked early and late and took no rec
reation, it was beginning to teU on her
The farm was not entirely paid for,
and they were not able to keep a girl.
She was a sensible little woman, and
felt that it was her duty to second her
thrifty husband's efforts. Leisure, if
not competency, would come by and by.
In descending the steps of the spring
house she f eU and sprained her ankle,
the pain so great that she almost

After much painful effort she suc
ceeded in reaching the sitting-room and
threw herself upon the comfortable
lounge. She fell into a doze, and when
she opened her eyes there stood Fanny
Atwood. looking down into her face.
She had on a plain, sensible-looking
traveling dress. Her figure was com
pact, her complexion healthy, her air
cheerful, her demeanor self-possessed.
Her cheeks were dimpled, her mouth in
dicated resolution, her soft brown eyes
offered confidence and invited it. She
had walked two miles through the hot
sun. over a dusty road, but one would
hardly have thought so, she looked so
neat, clean and placid.
"You are my Aunt Mattie. I suppose?"
she said in a low, sweet voice, a smile
lurking among her dimples.
"Yes, Mrs. Henderson said, with an
effort. "Your nncle forgot to giro b
your letter until this morning. He could
not meet you because he had to deliver
the milk over at the other railroad at
the hour you named. I am sorry yon

'I wasn't vexed about it," replied the
visitor. "Sbr am I in a hurry about my

son said. "I am afraid. I will not be
about for three or four days."
"That is too bad," cornmiseratingly
rejoined Miss Atwood. "It seems I was
just to come. I can do ever so many
things for you."
"Yes," grimly assented Mrs. Hender
son. Til first look after that; ankle," the
visitor said, briskly, cheerfully.
She removed her dainty-looking cuffs,
and then took off her aunt's shoe and
"It is considerably swollen," she said.
"I am not surprised," replied Mrs.
Henderson. "You will find a bottle of
liniment in the cupboard, yonder."
"I wouldn't put liniment on it just
yet," advised Fanny. "Have you any
sugar of lead?
"Very likely. Look in that medicine
box in the cupboard. There's a little of
every thing there, almost."
Fanny found the sugar of lead, and
then some linen suitable for a bandage.
She put the sugar of lead in a basin,
added cold water, soaked the bandage in
it and then wrapped it around the
swollen ankle. She went about it like
a professional nurse.
"That feels very cooling," Mrs. Hen
derson gratefully said.
"There is nothing reduces a swelling
like sugar of lead water," replied Fan
ny. "I'll wet the bandage every now
and then with it. Just you remain quiet,
dearie, and don't bother yourself about
any thing. You have no girl?"
"Xo, child." Mrs. Henderson said.
'We can not afford to keep one."
"I'll get uncle his dinner," announced
"You'll get George his dinner!" re
peated Mrs. Henderson.
Fanny noticed the incredulity in her
tone, laughed prettily, and said:
"Why shouldn't I? If you'll aUow me
to skirmish around I'll manage to find
things. However, it isn't near dinner
time yet. When I went to the kitchen
for the basin I saw you had sprinkled
the clothes. Shall I iron them?"
She saw the odd smile that came to
her tired aunt's lips and correctly inter
"May be you think I can't iron?"' she
pleasantly said. "Just you wait and see."
"But the dress you have on, Miss At

Fanny. "Of course 111 put on one of
When George Henderson returned
from hia errand he heard some one sing
ing in the kitchen. He stepped in and
saw his niece ironing away as deftly as
if she had spent the be3t part of her life
at it. She made such a pretty picture
that he stood still and looked at her.
"How do you do. uncle?" a twinkle of
merriment in her brown eyes; then she
went and kissed him, standing on tip-toe
to do so.
"I'm glad you've come, Fanny," he
said with heartiness. "I suppose Mattie
explained why I did not meet you at the
station? But why are you ironing?
Where is Mattie?"
"She is lying "down, uncle. She fell
and sprained her ankle."
Mr. Henderson stepped into the sitting-room,
a look of concern on his face.
"Why, dear, how did this happen?" he
"Oh, how does any thing happen?" she
replied, a little querulously. "Through
my own awkwardness, no doubt, I al
most fainted, the pain was so great."
"Does it pain you now, dear?"
"I am glad to say that it doesn't."

increasing appreciation of his niece.
"AHd she insists upon ironing. A
pretty mess she'll make of it!"
"Well, may be not." Mr. Henderson
said, in a quiet tone. "I watched her a
little while. Mattie, you are a good
ironer, but she is your eoual."
"Oh. nonsense. George!" exclaimed
his wife. "Beared in the city, as she has

"I'll chum that," he said. "Well get
along. Just you keep your mind at

if you do.'
Fanny Atwood prepared dinner, now
and then slipping into the sitting-room
to wet the bandage, and to chat in her
cheery way with the patient.
On the third day Mrs. Henderson was
able to hobble to the kitchen, where
she found every thing in most excellent
"Look at my currant jelly," Fanny
proudly said, as she held up one of the
glass jars to the light. It was trans
lucent and bright as ruby tinted wine.
"It is very nice," Mrs. Henderson
said. "How much sugar did you take?"
'round for pound." replied Fanny.
"I wasn't extravagant, was I?"
"You were wise," her aunt said with a

"Yes, auntie- It needed it. I knew
you meant to do it. for I saw you had

"Very nicely," Mrs. Henderson said.
"But it wasn't right for you to do it.
Surely your hands "
'Look at them," Fanny said, laugh
ing. "They are as white and soft as

I have a sort of dainty way of working.

horses, to go to the mill with Uncle
George, and to make myself useful aad

me work, or have anr fun, why, I'U go
right back to New York."
She spoke with voluble earnestness,
her gestures rapid, her dimples dancing.
Mrs- Mattie Henderson sat down in a
chair and cried.
"Why, aunt, what is the matter?"
asked Fanny, her brown eyes widening.
"I hope I didn't say any thing to "
"So, dear, you didn't," replied Mrs
Henderson, in a broken voice. "I am
crying because I am ashamed of myself
because 1 have been so unkind to you
in my thoughts. I supposed that you
would annoy me, and hinder me; that
you would be helpless, selfish, fault
finding; that you '
"But you think more kindly of me
now, do you not?" interrupted Fanny,
her hands moving caressingly over her
"Most certainly I do," replied Mrs.
Henderson, explosively. "That is why
I confess my injustice why I want to
make amends why I "
"Don't mind it, auntie," said the sweet,
forgiving, sympathetic voice. "I don't
censure you, and it's aU right now.
There may be and, in fact, there are
listless, frivolous, helpless girls in New
York City and in other cities but I
am not one of them. If I was, I am
afraid I would despise myself."
"I am glad you have come, Fanny,
and I will be sorry when you go," Mrs.
Henderson said, and she meant it. "My
prejudices misled me, and I have been
taught a lesson. Hereafter 111 not be
so hasty in estimating people, especially
before I have met them." Frank H.

They Were TTed By the Lowland Gaols In
the Days of Pliny.
The invention of the reaper, or more
properly speaking of a reaping machine,
is of unknown antiquity. The elder
Pliny, who was born when Christ was
but nineteen years of age, and who in
his mature years became a historian as
well as a naturalist, describes a reaper
used in his day by the Lowland Gauls.
This clumsy device, which would hardly
compare with a McCormick of the year
A. D. 1SS9, consisted of a wagon or cart
provided with shafts, into which one or
two oxen were yoked with their heads
facing the dash-board; that is, provid
ing, of course, they used dash-boards in
those days. To the hind part
of the cart, or to what would
be the fore part, this curious machine
being run tail first, was attached a bar
provided with sharp spikes set at an
angle which admitted of their, coming
together at the base a short distance,
say an inch, from whero they were
driven into the bar before mentioned.
Each of these early reapers were pro
vided with two men, one to drive and the
other to rake in the heads of the wheat
as they were cut or puUed off by the
sharp-toothed combing machine. A ma
chine, similar in all its details to the
one just described was used in England
up to about the time of George III.
In 1T99 an Englishman by the name of
Boyce was awarded the first patent on a
The first American patent was taken
out in 1S03. by the firm of French &.
Hawkins. Then came the Ten Eyck
and .Cope and Hooper patents, which
were issued in 1S25.
In 1S2S a preacher by the name of Bell
invented a rude reaper in Scotland,
which went the way of all the world
without practical results.
The first machine to command public
attention were those made on the plans
furnished by the Manning patent, which
was issued in 1S31. Obed Hussey and C.
H. McCormick invented the first ma
chines, in 1SS3 and 1S34, respectively,
which proved to the world that the har
vesting problem was forever solved.

HOW TO USE MONEY.
Every Watted Dollar U a New link ia the
CbjUb of Bondage.
The highest value of money is not its
value exchangeable for luxuries for
houses, equipage, art, service, and so
forth. It is chiefly prized for the power
which it giTes ot er others for the old
potency, marked so long ago, which
makes the borrower servant to the
lender. But its highest value is to
free the borrower from bondage to the
lender. The highest value of money is
in its power to purchase personal liberty
and independence. There are other
ways in which men gain emancipation
from personal servitude to other men,
but they are open to but few. A man
who has exceptionally fine talents in
literature, art or applied science of any
kind may be a free man: but the great
mass must purchase themselves with
money. By this we do not mean free
dom from dependence upon our fellow
men. No man can escape that, and it is
one of the most beneficent of the fund
amental laws of nature that it can not be
done. Mutual dependence is essential to
the development of all the finer vir
tues. But we do mean personal
servitude, the necessity of obeying an
individual master. Ordinarily this
may not be in itself a hardship; but
emergencies do come, and come not in
frequently, when this servitude involves
the sacrifice of sacred rights and man
hood often the sacrifice of conscience.
Lack of knowledge of the highest value
of money leads to a very general sacri
fice of its best use to inferior uses. Peo
ple buy luxuries better houses, living,
etc. not knowing that they are selling
their liberties for present gratifications.
Every young man ought to start out
with this one main object in life in
Tiew, to win his freedom. It is an in
spiring struggle, and one in which the
high motive will lift him over many
hardships. He may win it as a scholar
win it by the highest possible develop
ment of his mental and moral powers
by any thing that gives him superiority
in any kind of work. But in lieu of
special talents, money will do it. Every
asted dollar is a new link in the chain
of bondage. Interior

Brown Steamed Pudding. One
quart of fiour, one coffee cup of .raisins,
one teacupful chopped suet, one teacup
half full of molasses and filled with
brown sugar, one teaspoon of soda, two
cups sweet milk, a Httle salt. Mix and

of soda if preferred. Serve with sauce.
Almond Custard. Put over a quart

a small cupful of sugar and half a pound
of almonds, blanched and pounded to a

water. Stir carefuUy until the custard
thickens, then remove it from the fire
and set to cool. When almost cold, stir
thoroughly and pour into cups. Use the
reserved whites of eggs in making a
meringue, flavor with almond, and put
a little heap on each cup.
Cod-fish Cakes. One pint bowl of
cod-fish picked very fine, a two pint
bowl of raw peeled potatoes, put to
gether in cold water and boil until the
potatoes are thoroughly cooked. Drain
off every particle of water, mash with a
potato masher, add a piece of butter the

j a little pepper. Mix well with a wooden
spoon, nave a Irying-pan with deep

Scrambled Oysters. One quart of
oysters, one pint of milk, one table
spoonful of butter, and flour suffi
cient to thicken Hke cream; put the
milk into a spider, and beat to boiling;
when about to boil add the oysters; as
soon as they are boiling add the thick
ening with salt, white pepper and a
tablespoonful of sage and a teaspoonf ul
of tomato sauce; do not let the oystere
boil long: remove from the fire and stir

STYLES FOR WINTER.
Changes and Modifications From Popular
The Directoire styles have served a
good purpose in introducing the long
princesse coats and the modest princesse
dresses which will prevail during the
coming winter. The Empire styles re
main in favor, their classic designs
Toeing copied literally for evening
gowns, while their folded bodices, made
without visible darts or side forms in
the back, are used in various ways for
day dresses, often having the skirt
sewed to them permanently, making a
dress in one piece, as convenient and as
easily put on and off as the more simply
shaped princesse dresses. Basque
bodices have of late been left almost
entirely to tailor gawns, but 'Worth has
never entirely abandoned them, and he
now makes basque backs slashed in
square tabs to complete his mediaeval
corsages, with cuirass front and slashed
sleeves. A broad back is a new effect
seen on many gowns, given by coat-like
forms of even length below the waist,
with the tab finish just mentioned, or
else by round waists with fullness from
the neck and shoulders down to the
waist line, dispensing with all seams
that might make a tapering effect, hav
ing only the under-arm seams that are
absolutely necessary. The fronts of
waists are as fully draped as they have
been of late, and in many very elegant
dresses are round, while the back is
pointed. The collar is high for street
gowns, but lower, and either round or
rxrinted. for house dresses. Sleeves are
also varied according to the different ;
gowns, those for the Street being only

mutton-leg sleeves, while for the house
they are the fullest bishop's sleeves, as
full below the elbows as at the arm
holes, or else they are full over-sleeves,
falling open to show an under-sleeve,
which is plain or in full puffs, according
to the material of which it is made. 1Ye
must also metion the coat sleeve with a
simple round Empire puff at the top,and
row after row of velvet ribbon or of
passementerie passing around the sleeve
below, a fashion that makes long arms
look shorter and thin arms fuller.
Foundation skirts are not changed in
shape, and the skirts of street gowns
retain their straightness in plaits all
around, or else they have smooth scant
fronts with slight upward curves
from hip to hip, and the mass of fullness
gathered at the back. In some of the
long coats or over-dresses a tendency
toward fullness or slight drapery is seen
bv cutting off the back forms in corset
shape, and sewing on the full skirt,
sometimes with a slight jabot effect;
still others have a point or two points in
the middle forms coming over the skirt
fullness, but the greater number retain
the continuous princesse breadths, with
additional fullness plaited in the seams. ,
What was long ago called the "Slar
guerite polonaise back," with its fullness
draped under two bows on the seams be
tween the middle forms and the side
forms, is seen again in both gowns and
coats; and, indeed, almost any arrange
ment is permissible lor the back of
gowns, provided it does not: make the
fullness project in a shelving tournura.
