After that the sea looked bluer and colder than ever, and the solitary wo- man lived a sort of a hermit's life No cheery voice of a gossiping neighbor lightened the dreary cabin, no children prattled about her; nnd only Belle the blithe-hearted lassie, seemed to re- member to cheer her with a letter now und then. Belle was away now visiting gome distant friends, but in her kind heart she kept a corner, it seemed, for the poor old woman who had iaved her life. Three years--- four away, and daily of a summer afternoon you uimht have seen the widow sitting in her door-way, eager and hollow-eyed, looking out for some possible ship that might, be Tom's. Tom was not a good correspondent, but occasionally up at the little post office a wandering epistle waited her-trembling hand.

As she sat one day with streaming eyes, gazing on far-off sun- lit sails, and seeing how some of them hovered nearer and nearer, and some alas I took wing -farther and farther awav, the door-way darkened suddenly; there came rushing upon her, as il dropped from the clouds, a plump.dark eyed, rosy checked lady, who fianf toil inexhaustible, and that year after jear we cou.d continue to rob it and bhip away its lo fatten the lands of ether countries.

Truly there are none so blind at tiiey who won't see, or so deaf who won't hear. There teems to be no excuse for this neglect of our true interests There are an abundance of breeders ot the various kinds of improved stock in our country, and (he coat of the same are within paying prices ot the common farmer. U itli.u a few years much pro- gress has been made by leading farmers in all parts of the country, which has nsuhed i'i case in great success, but Btiil a majority have so far done almost nothing in that direction It is not neccs.-jary longer to argue that tlie better tl.e qualify of stock tbe more profit there is to the producer.

To doubt an honest child is to do what-you can to make a liar of him and to believe a liar, if he is not ulto- i-ether shameless, is to shame him. A year's pers'stent struggle for a livinir would make a rich man with brains richer than he can ever be with- out such un experience. True, we may be fascinated by a dark, lustrous, and beautiful eye, the crimion blush of a cheek, a graceful symmetri- cal form but, after all, the inquiry should be, Is there a soul within 't Is there elevation of thought, generous principles, noble purposet, a cultivated intellect Ha is good that does good to others If he suffers for the good he docs, ha is better still; and if he suffers for thetn to whom he did good, he has arrived to that heiszht of goodness that nothing but an increase of hissufturines can add to it; if it proves his death, his virtue is at its summit; it is heroism com- plete.
