The sunsut was painting all the forost paths wrth gold; the mossyboles^of the old tnH'fi glowed in the level light, as if Ihcy had been carved out of glittering bronze, and the scarlft vines along the 8tone wall caught new splendor from tliO last'rays, while the silvery-white fringe oi the wild clematis swung from the dead thorn-bushes, .and here and there a bird, perched high up against the deep, vivid blue of the heavens, ut-. tered its shrill, clear, vesper note; and Mr. Caryl, walking home through the ^V'estln-ook woods, thought what a beautiful world this was that God had made. I iktr. Caryl was only four and twenty, j and hiul been in the Westbrook parisii j for three month". Not long, but lon.g i enoupli to diseern, by the testimony of I hi.s own experience, that there were I thorns as well as roses in a country pas-I tor's life. It had seemed so beautiful and ideal j when he looked at it through the me-diuiii of his fancy, standing on the I threshold of the Theologial seminary. I It was beautiful still; but the ideality j had all gone out of it.^ i His mother met him on the door-step i of the parsonage—a brisk, gpectacled ; little dame, in a ttirned black silk, with ! frills ol neatly-darned lac'c, and violet • riVibons in her cap. ' " Well, Charles," she said, chcrily. j " here's a whole slateful of calls for you." j Mr, Caryl's countenance rather fell. ; lie had been.anticipating an evening by j the wood-fire, with the last number of 1 Dhichu'ood^s Magazine. I "Calls?" he repeated. " What are I tlioy? !ind where arc they?" 1 He w,ent into tho little parlor as he spoke—the parlor where the coveted wood-fire was leapingand flashing on the bright andirons, and a shaded lamp was already burnini? on the table among his piie<1-up books and papers—and took up ."I'm sure of it!'' declared the old lady.- - ........... Conscientiousness waB one of tnestrong points of Mr. Caryl's Dharacter. He tooK up his hat. " If it's got to be done,'^ said Jie j desperately,' " the sooner the better !" j " But you will stop for youir tèa first, Charles.«"' urged Mw. Caryl, j j'Hot corri hrewdTind sti^wbany^jaffli^^ "I'll stop nothing!" said Mr. Caryl. "Don't fret, little mothOT; won't take me long to speak to Sarah." And he disappeared with a laugb. As it happened, he. never before had been called upon to practice this particular branch of his profession, pleading with the rebellious lambs of his flock who thought more of their bright^ eyes than they did of their hymn books, and he turned the matter over in his mind as he walked along the frosty woodland path, where the young moon c-ast a fitful, evanescent light, and the dead leaves sent up a faint odor beneath his feet. " Spestk to Sarah," he mattered fo liimselt, not without a certain perception of the ridiculous side of the matter. " And what am I to say to ^ler, I wonder?" ' He knocked softly at the big front door of the Prune mansion. A shuffling, untidy girl of fourteen or fifteen opened it, hiding behind a shawl and a fringe of curl papers. " Is Mrs. Prune at home?" said he. " No, she ain't," retorted the girl. Mr. Caryl paused. He scarcely know what qjiestion to ask next. "Is Sarah at home?" he demanded, after a little. " Miss Sarah ?" " Well, 1 suppose it can hardly bo Mr. Sarah," said tlie young clergyman, half smilingly. " Yea, Miss Sarah of course." " She's at home," said the girl, ungraciously, opening the door a little wider. Came this afternoon. Settin' in the parlor. Walk in, ple.ase." And without further ceremony, Mr. Caryl fotmd liimself ushered into a semi-dark apartment, where a tall, slender young beaut;^ of eighteen sumnujrs or so sat before the fire, in », plain black dres.s, witli the simplest of cuffs and collars, and a single pale blue ribbon fastened' into the thick, dark braids of her hair— a person so entirely different from what he had expected to see tliat he stopped short in some perplexity. "Is tliis—atieml—Sarah?" he asked. " T am Sarah Fielding," she responded. "I have called—to speak to you," said he, with a desperate rallying of his vexbal forces. " Perhaps, Sarah, you may not know who I am?"............. "No, I don't." siiid the girl, in some surprise. " 1 am Mr. Caryl, the pastor of the parish." I am happy to make your aciuaint-aiice," said the girl, putting out one slim baud in the easiest possible manner. The pastóir hesitated. This was not what he looked for at all. " Of course—of course," said be. "But bow does it happen, Sarah, that you are at home agtiiíí so soon?" " Do you miean at Westbro^k?" "Where else should I mean?" retorted Caryl, Orustily—foi- lie felt that if he once abandoned his tone of authority lie was lost. ! i' "Why didn't you stay where you werei»" Sarali colored up to the roots of the hair. He could perceive that even in the uncertain rise and fall of the fire- JONES & SP.VRGUR. — Attorneys mi l Couuselory at Ljiw, Well.stvill», N. V.

"Dissension is stich «Ì dreadful thing -amoirg your flock, Charles," said his urothfir;—-: " And she's down here on a visit now— came tlws v^ry afternoon. Hain't you been introduced yet? Mr. Caryl,^m niece Siallié; SalÌiei j^V But before she covScÉfinisPS^^éi^ of her formal introduction tho clergyman had made a nervous grasp at his hat. " vimmii underetandingi" stammeredhCi "This young person told me that she was she ain't the Sarah to." " I beg a thousand pardons," sai4 Caryl, feeling the cold sweat drip from every pore. Miss Fielding burst out laughing. " They are chocrfully granted," said she. "No, don't go away, Mr. Caryl," holding out her hand as he was turning to depart. " I have learned that you possess at least the virtue of frankness. Shall we not be friepds?" And Mr. Caryl looked into the dark-blue eyes and said : "Yes." He forgot all about the hot corn-bread and strawberry-jam at liome, and stayed to tea at Mrs. Prune'S, while t!ie right Sarah escaped the intended lecture, and the wrong Sarah presided, in a most gracious and winning manner, behind the cups and sr ncers; and old Mrs. Caryl laughed heju ' ily when her bod explained the curious rt ''ontre to her, later in: the everting, f | -1 ^ . "But why did she leave her situation —the wrong Sarah, 1 n:eanP" said she. " Bec.ausc the you»g heir of the hoUse made love to hi'," said Mr. Caryl; "and 1 don't wojixder j.t it. She]s the pre ttieét little breat^tt^lJ evàr sàVr^ thy life." "Perhaps, then," said Mrs. Caryl, doubtfully, "your advice wasn't sO very much amiss, after all." "Certiiinly it was," said Mr. Caryl, with spirit. The old lady looked sharply at him. "Charles," said she, "I do believe you're struck liffclì'^liéri^, "Nonsense,*' said JMr.'Caryl, tuniing red.

Secrets of the Sea. About the middle of last July, Prof. Fi. Verrill, of Yale, who has charge of the deep sea dredging carried on by the American Fish Commission, left on the United States sleamer Sp'^edwell, and commenced at Saybrook researches in the water, which were proseciited jus far as thp Bay of Fundy, and with great succes.s. Marvelous things, never be» lore seen by huitiafr eyes, were brouglit to tl^e surface, Strange fishes and other objects weighted the dredges, and as they were displayed upon the deck, delighted the eyes of tile scientists, and led til em to hope for even greater di&-coyeries. : ; ; .i C > These researches have been carried on under government .supcrv.ision ))y Prof ferrili since 18?1.| '|h/ot>ioct; is! to learn everything possible concerning the fi^h :yid,.fi;4||(iri^i^f coiist.«.T|ia; drfdi^ngis carrife'd^dn du^ilg^the' sum'-- ìtr.initi?-?,! •--■^'ffi KÜMIÍEB 29; 3iíj Uf, ni r.k íñonnF^iíí* t4ß'm the s ' > ir > Blaëklôx and Malskìnarcrthd IftVoritc j-mms I nmed iiïi iwdifesbiiy K numbe^^f oht»i|»io](t hats .lasià triiA th%tatto mâtch éUiltf. ^ ■ ' ina.of bright broeAde^^ill be ijj^l^elvet skirts.

One morning we got after a pretty big jack, and ran him past ah emi.trrant party haured up for tlie night. Two men and a"woman were stirring about; and I saw two nice, rosy girls peering out of the back end of a wagon. They looked so inspiring that 1 thought would shoW them a li;tle fancy riding. So I touched Gilly and told her to go. At that, she just reached out those white legs of hers and straightened to it. Oh, she went like an arrow after the hounds and past that schooner, and away on across the prairie„.....And,- right in the- midst of her keen est run, she broke into a wolf-hole! Believe it or not, the mare turned a complete somersault! But I wasn't in the saddle when she turned it; I Iiad gone on. and went on; went ou my head, went on my J knees, wont every way. I was more than' fifty feet from the pony when I finally stopp -d! Sport and Grip pulled up t^ see me go, and the jack—he stopped and. [io,pked, The wolf came out of the ground and hooked, too.

Another young fellow, named Adney Clark, and ujyself once ran a jack-rabbit uiider a settler's aouse, which stood out by itself on th/i prairie. The rabbit ran up to it and crawled under the sill. The hounds could not get under. We went round the house and then iniojt.. There was no one at home. "Wo were dcfer-^■rfired"tcrhavo that jack, twiyliow.

AVe then poked out the jack and'thc hounds grabbed him. And at another time, when eight or ten of usJiWere out racing down jacks with as m:iny as thirteen hounds, we all got after one*big fellow, and at length ran him into an old deserted " dig-out."

The horses would appeiir to be aware of the supineness of their supposed protectors, for they have taken the matter into their own hands, or rather into their own teeth and feet. A carter by dint of hard flogging at his three horses, persuaded them to drag sixteen ton.s of coal to the root of the steep'hill which leads to the Boulevard Bessieis; but his powers of stimulation utterly failed to induce them to proceed any further—a thick steam rose-up from their panting sides and nostrils.
