HIRAM JENKINS’ MISTAKE.
Hiram J en ii us drove slowly up the hill road that led to the firm house of Doacon Hates. It was plain even to the casual observer that the errand lie | was bound upon was of no common importance. No man would have arrayed I himself so gorgeously, simply for the ! purchase of a tub of fail butter or a yoke | of steers. His hair was in a state of ! distressing smoothness, and seemed almost a part of the glossy hat which covered it. His coat and pantaloons were marvels in their way, and his boots, which had been elaborately blacked, reflected back the rays of the setting sun in a manner perfectly blinding to the beholder. And yet, notwithstandipg~bia superiorities in all these respects to the Ellies of the field, there was apparent in his actions a sin gular sort of nervousness, a trepidation almost, which rendered his appearance at once ridiculous and awkward. This trepidation was in no wise lessened by the sudden vision of a red-headed urchin watching him from the barn j door, and who, as the team approached,1 with an ever-widening giin sped oft in the direction of the farm house, and I

“ Of course he ll go home with her to-night/' thought Hiram. “ It’!l be I the first time I ve missed it for a year. j He’s welcome, though ”
“ AH the intermission he kept his seat, arid pretended to be looking for some tune in his singing book that re- j fused to be found. Jenny did not look a* him.
The doxology closed tho school ai last, and there wus a grand bustling about the door, and an eager pushing among the young men to make sure of their favorites Hiram was trying to make his way through the crowd, when he found himself at the elbow of Jenny Rates, and at the same moment the

Many years ago a gentleman from the town of Methuen, Mass , while on a visit to a prominent mer- bant in Hos-n. was asked by the merchant if he knew a boy in Methuen whom he could recommend to work in his store. At fir.-t the gentleman could think of none, I >r be knew cone bat a faithful, honest boy would suit the thrifty merchant At length, however, he called to mind .a boy of excellent character in his neighborhood, but feared he would hardly do, as his parents were very poor, and he had no education cr other advantages to fit him for such a position.
Rut the description of the boy's habits pleased the merchant so much that he handed the gentleman $1 with which to pay the bov s fare to Bouton by the

44 Not now I’ve got t i go down to tho village before dark. ITI be round some time to-m irrovv.”
Hiram Jenkins waited until he saw ; his successful rival climb the fence be-j tween the two farms. Then he delib-j erutely unhitched his wagon and drove I off, never casting a I >ok toward the window where the fair Jenny sat in j watchful expectation. Not until he reached his own door did he draw a I long breath
“ It seems just like a dream,” said he , to himself, as he slowly unbuckled tho : harness. 4i To think of Jenny Hates kicking her own father an i biting her own little brother, arid she looking as though butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth ! It is just as mean, though, in the deacon to lick as Tis for her to kick. The old hypocrite! Well, I must say I’m mighty deceived in them Bateses. I s’pose Jonathan lingers feels cranky enough now tte’s got her I just hope she'I! kick his head off Lucky for me I overheard what I did ” Notwithstanding this self-gratulatioii Hiram felt all the pangs of disappointment and jealousy. Ile had not only lost his ‘J girl,” but he had been cut out in the most mortifying manner by a man he held in thorough contempt. He felt that even with what ho now knew of Jenny’s faults, if he could gain her hand he would carry her off in spite of his rival, or the deacon either.
A week passed by, and Jenny was never out of Iiiram’s thoughts. One
day he went to the village, and while there, standing in front of the postoffice, Elnathan drove by with the deacon’s mare.
44 I s’pose now he’s got Jenny, he thinks he’s got a right to the whole property,” muttered Hiram. 44 I wi>h to gracious the marc would put her feet through the dash board ! ”
That night the singing school met at the Academy. Hiram came late. He
11 Stop ! Let me tell you Can’t you listen a minute ?” said Hiram iii desperation . He felt there was no other way than to make a clean breast of it, and plunged into his work at once. Word for word he related the conversation he had heard in the horse barn, and the effect it had upon him. He was deeply in earnest, and in closing humbly appealed for forgiveness. Ile saw ,
lad to the city, and if on a personal in-! terview all should not prove saiiafacto-| ry, he would pay his fare back home I again. The man as requested, visited ' tile boy's parents, and, stating the mer-f chant’? proposal, advised them to send the boy for trial. He then gave him : the 81 with which to pay his fare to j Boston and departed.
Under similar cases ninety nine out of every hundred would have said : *4 Now for a good time ; I never saw a city and never rode in a stage. Oh, there will be such a long ride, and here is rnone} sent to pay my fare.” Not so with this boy Putting the money
