must be paid for this and I want to buy some more stock this and I have a nest spring But if I haven't passed Mrs and I didn't stop Git wan looking woman thinking of all this Thinking Sho had no time to think of anything but work The churning was not tho breakfast dishes were not tho milk was not tho week's Ironing ed her in the ami but not was tho little ono tugging at her bogging lor nourishment But it does so she keeps on with her churning until tho little one's is exhausted and its screams are heard above tho splash of tho churn Tho mother cnn no longer must bo cared for tin nil as she thanked and stowed away the pittance for future use The weeks wore on toward and Mrs Wilton sighed heavily as she thought of the large and to bo bought nnd made John must be fitted then tho four little and herself Her own share would be she but then she had not much work to and she could get along with loss who did long HO so much for a new merino with warm or a pair of or a collar and a bit of ribbon for her neck But these not to be thought of Nothing but bare could bo for John had been buying and had paid for his and met a note or and ho felt bo said Poor woman She had not had a nice dress since her marriage Then she had a good things will wear and most of those were now doing duty ns children's or skirts for and her best dress now was a cheap delaine She sighed just a little half-smothered as she thought of all this on the day she went to lay out her I did not tako long to dispose of the s nail she lay awake pondering how to make ono dollar do the duty of and the problem was worked out with tho utmost precision Now that tho goods wore tho next trouble was how to got them made soon enough She had been obliged to put off purchasing for want of and now she could not toll which was most needed I could only get some ono to mo for a I could soon see my way said Mrs Wilton to her husband ono as she tat stitching on her little better had I a Mr Wilton knocked tho fishes oft lis cigar and said don't seo how it that you're always com- plaining of having too much to and wanting help all the time Why there's she never used to think of hiring any work done She used to make everything for eight of and weave all tho cloth Mrs Wilton did not her heart was too full tho wimmen want so much to bo Mrs Wilton thought ot the mower and tho but said ing she felt a little tmng go through her then it sank back again as a heavy load She did not go to bed that night until long after Tier band was sleeping soundly She had worked hard all and sleep would bo a welcome but the little ment was much and she must sit up and make it how her tired eyes but not worse than tho hungry heart ached for thy and comfort it were not for my sho cried to could havo very to care Then the thought of her little sent the fresh tears to her but gave a sudden impulse to all else go untouched Sho was naturally a tidy and as she looked around on the un- tidy house grow nervous almost to and the tears fell fast on tho baby's face at her breast how welcome arc these silent visitors when tho heart is ed with grief or They seem to bo the rivers that wash our hearts selfishness Mrs Wilton wept long and but when tears were wiped away so also was her burden of toil and and tenderly her ing babo sho laid him in his and went about her work if not Sho possessed a cheerful disposition but sho was not a stranger to those hopes and tions that eonie to most of us to cheer our discontent She loved beautiful things She loved and longed tor a stroll over the prairie that lay broad and bright around her But she found but very little ment for even tho luxury of a ramble out of doors Her husband was a money money-getting who saw DO use in anything that there was no money in lie knew all the ways and means of money getting and also money saving He had taken his wife from a lining home in an Eastern and made for himself a home on tho praMes of the West Ho was a very shrewd man by the neighbors around lie know when to buy stock and when to lie knew when a piece of land was worth ing or and was always getting some His wite had long ago out that money was his and everything must be sacri to herself she sometimes when with aching head and tired had sought her pillow Thus the ears passed until few would in the sunken cheeked tho rosy John Wilton had brought thero eight years before Mrs Wilton did not ask her husband it ho had stopped at Flynn's sho supposed of course he and the following week she watched for her expected help Watched but not but as the hours went she be- gan the task nnd kept at it until all was done Mr Wilton pretended not to seo all this Ho kept aloof as much us so as to avoid any explanation ho might bo called upon to make but when alone by he said Susan is getting along alter all She will have tho house shinin again Saturday and then I'll just give her tho money I'd had to pay Mrs Flynn It'll go toward buyin tho winter things for the and he gave tho well filled a loving squeeze Saturday night found tho house all as Mr Wilton had but Mrs Wilton looked more tired and worn than ever It had been u hard week for and even tho clean house was hardly a recompense But Mr Wilton felt satisfied Strange that ho not the odor of tho essence of life in the shining dows and whitened walls But he only said as he glanced about him is eh hero's five dollars to pay your woman and ho chuckled to for he well knew that some of it would como back to him in the shape of socks and undershirts wouldn't for four times that feel so worn out as 1 do sighed Mm Wilton to her tired and she stitched away for another hour and saw the garment and folded when she sought much needed rest Sabbath morning Mr Wilton put on a new under- shirt and saw tho ones looking fresh nnd sweet in their now garments ho saw not that tho fingers which had so patiently wrought put changes wore that morning scarcely strong enough to fasten the garments of tho little ones about their chubby forms Spring bright and joyous as dotting the prairies with ers and filling upland and valley with floods of Mrs Wilton had been growing thinner and paler all and was now scarcely able to bo about the house TLe doctor had recommended how could she rest with so much lying undone around I could only go away for she snid one when she was feeling weaker than usual I could only go homo to mother on a 1 know sho could nurse mo up all right and the pale lips ered visibly wish you I'm re- plied her husband I don't sec how I can afford it I might sell some of my but as prices are it wouldn't pay at all I couldn't got much more for them calves than I got for em last after keeping cm all winter And buying my corn about took all my Mrs Wilton did not reply I doubt very much if she heard his remarks nt for she was dreaming of the old with its wide gables and comfortable rooms tho that sho know putting forth their young sloping meadow with its violet covered the robin's nest in tho cherry above of tho sweet old face that loomed up through and with out- stretched arms yearning to embrace her in the John Wilton glanced at hor as he went out at the and mistook thu flush of anticipated joy for the bloom of and went off guess she'll gel better as tho days get warmer I will try to hire body for her this can do nothing for said Dr Graves to Mr who bad followed him out of Mrs Wilton's sick chamber for hor My tor You don't mean that she ii past all and John Wilton's heart seemed to stand still for a moment did not say she was past replied the doctor truth your wife is worked entirely down and unless she has and plenty of she will die I may as well she will not get rest here She go away where she will havo no care of house or family or she will die You may find another but your children will never find another So the good doctor drove toward home The door was partly and Mrs Wilton had in her sick tho doctor's and her heart gave a great which undoubtedly would have created an alarm for her had the doctor known it if sho could only go homo Homo to the old to mother and rest bow long it had seemed since she had re- the full meaning of that even while sho lay there she seemed to hoar her mother's and feel her soft hand caressing her But the next moment came the realizing sense of the impossibility of such happiness How could she go with the now that she was so how could she go without them And how could sho be spared to how could Mr Wilton afford let her All her hopes seemed lost when she looked tho matter straight in the and sho turned her white face to the and shut her eyes as if to keep back the tears which she felt was com- ing John Wilton was aroused He stood for a long time just where tho doctor had left him After a ho started up as if seized by a new impulse and went into the to his wife's sick room Mrs Wilton was lying very with her face turned from him lie went softly up to her to sec if she was sleeping A ray of com- ing through the torn window revealed a trembling underneath the half closed and John Wilton turned away with a so and without opening her she is What is am It had been many days since she hnd heard him call her and it was no wonder that sho opened her eyes wide in astonishment He was at her bedside ling like a convict you hate Susie what a question You know are an or you would halo me Hero I have been killing you by inches for nnd never until that yon might bo mortal Tho doctor has been ing mo heard it said the tears trickling down her wan cheeks you it shall be as he said You shall have rest You shall go home to and stay a year if need how can you spare John can I spare you whispered hor husband how can you afford enough But wo must not talk about it you are too weak to bo excited about anything Yon arc to get well as fast as you and and in two weeks you will be Mr Wilton proved to bp a true for in two week's time Mrs Wilton was far enough recovered to begin the How far the of that journey wont toward king her able to undertake wo will not say Mr Wilton accompanied his wife It was too much for her to undertake to go alono with tho the tor and Mr Wilton was very cheerfully acquiescing in every and even ing things for her that ho once would have thought unnecessary expenditure But Mr Wilton was not minding tho expense now He had sold his young stock for much less than he paid for that his might be nursed back to life and health And ho could but rejoice at the sacrifice ns he saw Her eyes grow bright and hor step elastic ae long as you was his parting message to his as he bade her adieu at tho door of the homestead Six months Susan Wilton stayed in the home nest what a thorough rest was It seemed so good to wander about the old place almost as free from care as in her girlhood now gathering the flowers from tho or bathing her tired feet in the meadow or sitting beneath the shade of the state ly twining their leaves into hunting hens nests with the and enjoying all their games with a relish she never dreamed sho could feel again The poor woman drank in every moment of joy as tho she knew tho cup would not always be so full But with returning health came a strong den ire to return homo and to its duties and cares once more So ono morning in early she left her among tho hills of her old and went back to life's with a glad and thank ful heart But the old life and its ceaseless round of work and toil was over Thero was to bo no more yearnings for no more words of no more o tho wise and pound foolish economy Husband and share alike in the comforts and the old hard life is Home at inc Tho Y in referring to th recent meeting of the National Agri cultural Congress nt Indianapolis makes this the third annual report of the Secretary of the it seems that there arc nl ready agricultural in the with an aggregate membership of statement which ought to give th public some idea of the importance ol the present movement It ought to be observed also that tho popular notion at the that the Patrons of Hns bandry and Grangers are poor men laboring for their daily and winning a scanty subsistence by hard manual is entirely incorrect The farmers of the West in like the planters of the capital ists and employers of in tho business of production in a man ncr almost as unlike that of the smal farmer of tho East as the of the manufacturer of boots an shoos is unlike that of the old fashioned shoemaker A Poughkeepsie who sporte a long curl and a love of a bonnet visited a menagerie She got to close to the monkey and mischievous prototype reached thai carl He it and with it th rest of her false hair and the love of a bonnet The entire family of monkey tried to wear the and mad sorry work of while the what she did can be imagined Air old lady gave this as her ide of a great who is of his don't drink read the spelling th and eat a cold dinner on day without An in acknowledging th gift of a peck of onions from a stab is such as these that bring tears to our eyes A Orange Jubilee at The Grangers of Henry county in a grand celebration on of last week at Mt nt It was the largest meeting ever eld in that and the lession of farmers with their wagons as il filed into was more than fonr miles long The rowd assembled at the fair at one o'clock was addressed by C C Carpenter The or's address was eloquent and the inequality between cap- al and the causes that brought bout the organization of Patrons of their duties in the present the need and possibilities of heaper the necessity md to teach and in all dealing Tho rnor have intimated that your power will be in your moral influence It is for Americans to think that all must be wrought out through and the vote But when we race the progress of the world and ho achievements of individually back to their ire find they are generally the result other political or legislative auses Of course the Grange will ave its influence upon tho politics of he country It will be felt in cal conventions and legislative bles but any attempt to make the Grange distinctively political must re- it in disaster By the moral power f your you can give to public and are the public you make appendage of any man's political or if you go following after do not mean politicians in he sense of taking an interest in ic and seeking to become well in relation to all your and material and o learn how to promote them at the allot I if yon go around this will tumble into ruins about onr cars if you allow to carry their grists to he mill in the pouches of the rou will trail your regalia in a mire for no social or intellectual es of your association will afford Dispensation It is the fault of this age that we ave come to think that all onr oses for better living can be spoken into a reality by an act of Congress r the General Assembly If the mighty Ruler of the world had de- that LAW should accomplish nil the purposes of man's well would have regenerated the world by the enunciation of a redeeming from Sinai Man is to he may lean upon a divine arm for but he must act for himself So with human it may help or hinder man's in proportion as it is wise or but men make themselves what they either as as or as by their own and their own efforts When he children of Israel fled from an they were led by One greater than who gave them for their direction a day and a pillar of fire by night He was so supreme in and had such undisputed title to control of that by tho fiat of a word He caused the waters of a sea to part so that they went through be- the walls of water dry-shod and yet He did not so hedge these people by walls of statutory and make their way so straight and smooth that they could move into Canaan without personal or without the exercises of skill and even prowess They stumbled on in the wilderness forty at last to come into the promised land with minds tendered and bodies hardened for their subsequent achievements as a nation it is evidently the design of the Author of all that the achievements of humanity shall depend more than all else upon the mental and moral man hood of onr race UPON THIS THE GRANGE MUST RELY No tion will have the power to strike down all wrongs in a day or a Patient progress in the knowledge of what wo and then patient ex and application of the cesses of achievement to practical furnish tho only hope of good which any organization presents to tho world This is all Grange will be able to do Getting Bid of a Housekeepers know what nuisances somo of those people and we give them a valuable hint as to how to get rid of taken from tho It Wo had a visit from a lady canvass or last week She wished to dispose of a book She was alone in this world and had no one to whom she could turn for sympathy or hence should buy her book She was unmarried and had no heart into which she could pour her therefore wo ought to in vest in her book She had received liberal education and could talk French like a we could in pay her less than two dollars for a book She wanted to in music from a learned germ an we must not decline buying a book W had listened attentively and here brok in did you say We're She started in a loud voice and went through her rigmarole When she had we went and got a rol of and made it into a speaking placed one end in our ear and told her to proceed She nearly broke a blood vessel in her effort to make herself beard She commenced am alone in this make the slightest difference us We are not we an husband and father Although this ii leap year bigamy is not allowed in this State We are not eligible to what a fool the man she said in a low then at the top ot he don't want lo marry you I This las sentence waa howled don't wan a we blandly wife does the cooking and she wouldn allow as good looking a woman as yo to stay in the house five She is very She looked ns in despair Gathering her robe about giving us a glance of con she I do if a three hundred pounder was le off alongside of that deaf old head he'd think somebody was ing at tho slinging herself out and Blaming the with a that awakened our office who can sleep sound enough for a whole family When she was gone we indulged in demoniac laugh She isn't likely to try to sell us a book any more A who signs himself is out in a letter to the per on the policy to be pursued by Grangers His remarks are so sensible and to the that we lay before onr readers a portion of Ms as follows love the Order of the Patrons of I love it for the good it as already and for the immense mount of good it is capable of only properly fostered and shed I also love the Republican arty and its glorious principles I love he inestimable good it has bequeathed pon tho during its short but rond and for the grand in- ure that is still before it And I vow my and I now I echo the sentiments of reds of good Patrons in every part f the that if any effort is made by the or a majority of members at any to re- triet free political or in any way abridge the rights of its bers in the exercise of good shall drop it as no longer worthy he sanction of the honest and fair minded cannot these men consider that if such things were and the Republican lenient largely preponderating in Granges tho Democratic of the membership could y bo hand and with compelling them to vote Republican The eyes f tho Order are upon these and if the hopes of he laboring classes shall be blasted y the unwise and unjust action of they may yet regret that were so foolish as to betray their into tho net of which their enemies have laid for net woven if tho meshes of politics Let us hope better counsels will that will be entirely excluded from iur Grange rooms and that intercourse will be more largely the science of agriculture and domestic labor more fully that such and such es as will engender no hard shall bo tolerated for to the end that brotherly love may and the Order thereby more thoroughly Hog and Sheep The late legislature of Iowa passed a law requiring the owners of sheep ind swine to keep them up Failing o do it becomes at once the lege of any person to take them up impound of which doings he must notify any constable of the county The constable must then give
