It was the pride and joy of Nellie Kemble to muke her home bright and happy.

March I- Albert Lea, Jtf wife always met him w.th no appearance of fatigue; so he took it for granted that she was having a pretty easy time of it The dinner dishos. were hurried out of the way after Mr Kemble's depar- ture Then the ironing board was drawn out, and the clothes basket re- lieved of its rollud-up contents, which were carefully pressed out nnd hung on the bars" to dry Frankie, with his throat, bandaged and his form almost lost in the voluminous folds of a woolen shawl, sat, in an easy chair, watching his mother in thoughtful silence. At length he spoke Mamma, seenii to me, you are til ways at work. Don't you get tired Not very, Frankie I like uiy work. That is why it don't tire me" You are a good mannnu. and I don't like to hear papa talk as he did at the table Never mind, papa did not mean anything by it What makes him say such things then Oh, Frankie, I would not talk about that See, here is St. Nicholas for Christmas that Aunt Ida sent you. Look at the pictures I will read you the story of Cluck-a-Luek by-and by" So the diverted tho attention of her child from observations that stirred her own mild with disquietude his supper in recovered good humor. The table looked so inviting, and the genial air of sweet home comfort charming, that a blinder man than Will Kemble could not have remained indif- ferent. Especially as Nellie ciroe in just then neatly attired, and bearing a steaming tea-pot in her hand. The husband fairly succumbed to the force of circumstances, and catching his prei- ty wife in his.arms, kihgdd her pink cheeks until they rivalled in color the cherry knot of ribbon at her vbroat. Ah, are a treasure. There is not another such a woman in Hudson said the happy man, as he seated himself at the table I try to please you, was the smiling answer. You do please me but you must always bear in mind that I have much to try me in the outside world, of which you happily knew nothing, shielded as you aro i'roni all care aud trouble 1 would gladly share all your troubles, if you will only tell me what they was the sympathizing reply. The husband was silent Not bsins a-ble to make his troubles out very clear- ly, he discreetly turned to Frankie. and was soon in an animated chat with him. After the supper was disposed of and Mr Kemble bad enjoyed his cigar, he approached his writing desk, and taking couple rolls of paper from dig pocket, was soon buried in their contents. Presently Mrs Kemble entered the room with work basket in "hand. Seat- ng herself at small stand, she thread- ed her needle preparatory to the etn- Droidermg of the heel of a perforated stocking, when she was interupted jy------- Come, let that wnrk go now. and help uie with this proof" Certainly. Will, with pleasure, but low is it that, your proof is not cor- eeted. and your columns ready for the in the morning asked the wife pleasantly Oil. I liavc so much to do. You wouldn't understand if I were to tell you Ju-it then the door-bell Tans, and Mrs. Kemble cjoini; to the door, admit- ted Jjtri Stacy, a friend of the family, and a rollickinsr good fellow. When his eye lit on Kemble, he called out, Ilalloo, old fellow Working to make up loht tigie What luck did you and Jones to- day Yet any replied our hard- working editor. We did not mak duck-shooting our object Jones wantec to exercise horse vre drove ou ten or twelve miles, and after refresh ing the inner man with the bill of fan of a country hotel, we returned. Jones rather overrates the speed of that ani inal of his I WHS out with Ned Allen 3-esterday for a short drive, and his Dandy trotted a mile inside of three minutes with far greater ease than Jones' Fnrrel. I think Jones is rathor anxious to sell hi.s horse, and talks up his speed for an said Stacy. So the conversation rnn on from one topic to another, until the little French clock on the mantel struck nine, and the caller took his leave. Mrs Kemble pondered on the con- versation she How was it, uinn so driven with work as her hus- band, could break away every day from bis business, and apend hours driving with his friends? She put down the silent questions, however, and concluded the singularity of the matter was made right by Will's superior adherence to method The following week, the day before the issue of his paper. Kctnble was again in an excited state overharineso much to do, and repeated his wish for his wife's help at his office. I declare, Nell, I haven't written one thing for this week's issue, and I nm so driven, you ought to help me. You can't have much to do to-day j so just slip on your hat, and go with me this morning What shall we do about dinner Never mind dinner. You can pick up something when we get back." But there is bread to bake, cake to be nir.de, the breakfast dishes to wash, the oil-cloths to clean, beds to bo 1 There, a string! Why, in the name of common sense, don't you arrange your work so it, won't all come on one day It don't all come on one day. Yes terday was Mcnday, and you know washed Tuesday is always my baking, day. ednesday I iron, and good natured on the leading issues of the- day. Then the foreman poked his head in the door and aske rodueed by tight boots aud shoes, whish is probably the reason why when a man is tight .they say he is corned. If a farmer manages well, ho can get a great deal of corn on an acre, but I now of a farmer that has one corn that makes the biggest acher on his farm. The bigaer crop of vegetable corn a man raises the better he likes it; but the bigger crop of animal corn he raises he does not like it. Falni Your Farm' Implements. Millions of dollars arc lost annually in the United States, by neglect to paint farm wagons, plows, harrows, These things, if well painted and' kept under cover when not in use, will last three times as long as they will when they are not repainted of tor two or three years of use. Any farmer can paint these things. All that is needed in Venetian red and linseed oil, half raw and half boiled, then wash the imple- ment be painted thoroughly, and pro- ceed to apply the paint. Even pleasure carriages can be nicely painted at nboat one-tenth the cost when painted by a carriage maker. A former says "Af- ter paying twenty dollars every ottrer year to the carriage tnakera for paint- ing and varnishing my fxrgirjr, nnd' ing without the use of'it for fifteen days while at the shop; I concluded to ln- qirre into the matter a little, believing all that a farmer can do towards keep- ing hia and farm machinery in or. der should be done nt home. We too often employ the mechanic to mend our harness, when we can do itq.uiteas well, though at all times' not quite so smoothly. The next time my buggy needed painting, I called at the carri- age shop, and inquired what they would paiut it for. They would cleaa and put )a one coat of paint and rarnish for iftecn dollars, and tor all necessary re- 3sirs in wood, iron, or leather, they would charge at the rate of thirty cents an hour, and the value of the materials used for two coats of paint and of varnish, twenty dollars, and two weeks' time to do the work in. I concluded o paint and varnish it myself, and the result was that it cost me in paint and varnish only 51 50, and the work was done as well, so far as I could see. as hey would have done it. I gave it wo coafs of black carriage paint, and >ne coat of varnish." It was a Frenchman the famous who, contentedly laying his head upon a large stone jar for a pil- low, replied to one who inquired if it was not rather hard Not at all, for I have stuffed it with hay." It was an American lecturer who solemnly said one evening Parents, you may have children, or, if not, your daughters may have."
