Don't tell Betsey Jan'p Now, Betsey Jane was Mr. Nieodc- mus stiriiujr. noble soul, who made more butler nnd, and took more eggs and fowls to the city markets, in the course of a season, thau any other woman for miles around. Strong, healthy, and hearty, she made tho house work to use her own en- ergetic expression and if Mr. Nicode- miis Harding owned his farm that day, and was well-to-do, in fact a rich man to boot, it was owing in no small meas- ure to the skill, energy, economy, and general goahoadativeni'ss of his Betsey Jane. What was it. then, that tho un- grateful man was not about to tell Bet- sey Jane It would never do, never thought Nicodenius to himself, shaking his head. She'd be wanting a now carpet, or a new silk gown, or the house all painted over, or some such nonsense. Now, the woman is the weaker vessel, and it won't do to trust one too far, Their heads won't stand it." SojJMr. Nicodomus passed through tho house and out toward the barn, with the prc-oecupic-d air pf a hen who has an egg to lay and don't know where she can hide from the eyes of mankind to the best advantage. The kitchen was empty and silent as he went through it. But, oh if ho could have seen the good-looking female, who stole silently out of the pah try, and .is silent. ly followed him on his barn. Mrs. Harding came back in about twenty minutes or so, with a face red with suppressed laughter. Don't tell Betsey she said, giggling into her gingham apron. You ai'e a very smart man, Nicodc- mus; and my brother, Tim Vocs, is another, and a lawyer into the bargain. Don't tell Betsey indeed Two wretches! you deserve all you'll get pretty Betsey Jane said no more, but bided her time.
