Glad now that they nut me at Hospital an Exchange says it is wrong to Tell a Man he lies. It depends however on the size of the Man. Catching the school master. Young and yes just As Nice As can be 1 of c Hirse. He is too Young to be married then who la catch laughed the pert girl of the Village. You wont said pretty Jessie War Ner. Why not i because Don t think he s the kind to be caught twixt of you re going to try the Coy Aud re tiring Young woman said Frank her name was prances. I m not going to try was the response. He has Only been Here a few Days said Frank tossing her Black curls. They say he is studying Law and 1 mean to marry a lawyer if i the catching had hitherto been done by the wiry much enduring Scio Almasi tars made tyrants by the idleness add in Solence Auu insubordination of the larger scholars. They had caught Bobys by tie Collar caught the older girls Reading novels under cover of Well thumbed school books caught them writing love letters instead and held them up to the of the school. One who is always on the watch for mis chief is sure to find it. This regime had passed away. A Young Aud handsome Man a very Chesterfield in map Neis had met the scholars As a gentleman meets Young ladies and Gen now some of the girls de Lared Aff no girl with self respect would declare that he was to be caught himself. So enthusiastic so really imbued Wita his work was lie that he easily inspired the Best spirits in the school so that they in keeping up in their studies and in general Good behaviour. Bur strangely enough the master seemed determined not to be in vain invitations poured upon him to parties to till the b Bywood in vain the nets stoic Spond in his sight in vain some of the Young ladies dressed for him smile for was apparently insensible to All allurements. He could be seen Only at school or in the sire to or at Hurth. Is just a said Kate pout ing and i do Hite a Ooka Young or one pleasant evening several of the girls met together in the sitting room of Draco a Tufts. Now the Deacon was a cripple and As he bad been chosen Post master Aud could not go out to the office the office came to him. It was a pleasant room and generally quite Well tilled for applicants for let ters. As was often the Case in the in formal Little meetings the master was the subject under discussion. Have you caught him asked one of the girls of Frank slyly. Of Jessie Here seems to be the favor said Frank. He has eyes Only for her. Hope Susie appreciates the Atten Tion. He ought to be Good to her or maybe his supplies would of course i appreciate his said Jessie with a laugh. Why Only think he s going to teach me French indeed the District does t pay him for giving you private lessons though said Frank almost angrily. Certainly replied Jessie but his time is his own out of school hours. Of course i try to return his i Don t doubt it but Pray toll us in what asked Frank ironically. Of i put Flowers in his loom to make it look cheerful and on the table or i make a Little bouquet for his is i did make one but he did t Wear she added. Sentimental you have tie cast Clear before you Haven t you. Well if you mean he boards at our House Aud must be treated kindly yes. The right you were All it the dance he took Mother and to to so that s the reason he did t come to my cried Frauk her eyes red As Well As her Cheeks. Partly and partly because be hates dancing he told me so How Well you Are matched retorted Frank. You Don t dance and he Don t like it. It you keep on with your flow ers your rides you will catch him never "0, but i neither wish nor intend to atch him maybe he is engaged to somebody Al ready he acts like was the Sugges Tion of Frank s Cousin. I told Frank she ought to find has plenty of letters addressed in a lady s said the Neacsu holding one up for them to see and he turned away with a smile but l i pretty sure none of them Are from a Sweet maybe he s got a he has and a Mother too. His Sis Ter is married and the Mother is with of but then what does he want to hire the Brown cottage queried a quiet Little girl. Father has it to let you know it seems to me i heard him say the schoolmaster wanted it for his exclaimed Frank. At this the postmaster laughed aloud. If he s engaged he s moan said Frank with in Ruth. The idea of his coming Here under false pretences did he Ever Tell any body he was not asked the Deacon. I Don t know As he did and i aug sure i Don t care if he s engaged to a dozen girls if he s conceited enough to think 1 do i will soon a deceive it was always self with the foolish girl. Her undue consciousness had led her in to trouble More than once. Hush Frank there s or Evans i Hope he did t hear said Jessie As the tall figure of the Clergyman entered. Who cares if you suppose i am Atilid of the minister you Are Fie added boldly walking up to him heated with temper and Chagrin. Or. Evans you Are one of the Sci tool she said with the Assurance of a business Matron of forty will you please Tell us what is the mystery about the teacher you have employed for the said or. Evans looking at her in Surprise. Really miss Frances i Haye never heard that there was any mystery about Well there is and i think it ought to be cleared up. Tax payers ought to know what kind of men come into our midst especially when he has charge of their daughters. He came Vith the Best recommend and the minister was More anc1 More surprised. Well sir the Deacon declares he is not engaged to be married and yet he is looking Tor a House in which to live i understand and he is at the same time playing the free Young gentleman among Lias he showed any special attention to you or trifled with any of my Young is certainly trying to with Sessie of can you say cried. Jessie her lace aflame her eyes sparkling indignantly.

He told Mamma after we had become a Little acquainted that he Marritz. Her just alter he graduated because she was alone nod jihad do friends or protector. He is now study ing Day and night to get admitted to the bar and he is anxious to bring his wife Siere that is Why be was looking at the Little cottage Ras it Lias a few rooms furnished.

The second time was when a Candi Date for the academic it Al Pryot went to pay the customary visit to an influential immortal whose chateau was in the environs at pans. _ at tie moment that the poet rang it the Gate an ignoble whelp of incredible ugliness covered with mud rushed to meet him with joyous barks and fawned upon him to the detriment of the Peel s new pantaloons. Disgusted As de Musset was it would have been perilous to drive of the immortal s faithful dog so he Vas compelled to let the frightful animal lick his hands cover him with caresses and mud and precede him to the drawing room. A moment later the academician entered. Dell Usset Embarrass Niento at which1 he was not surprised considering the behaviour of the animal.

A ivonian u Liff worst miss Nancy n. Clough died in Enfield Hampshire aged so years Baacl 3 months the Story of the life of this seems More like Romance than reality. It May Well be called Romance in real life. She was the oldest of a family of ten children five of Wiliom Are still living. While she was yet Young her fathers farm in Enfield became heavily encumbered and was Likely to be sold under the Hammer his health too was broken Down and the future of that family appeared Well nigh Hope less. Nancy foreseeing the disastrous consequences threatening the future resolved to save the dear Home and went to work with heroic Energy to carry the Resolution into effect. She enlisted her brother Theophilus next younger than herself in the laudable Enterprise who cordially seconded her efforts and gave his efficient Aid. Learning of the factories that had just started in Lowell. Mass., she left i Jaime and vent to that City to find remunerative work. She entered one of the factories As an Humble operative but wrought with Tach Energy and skill As to accomplish More work than two Ordinary operatives receiving More than double pay. Every Leisure moment outside the Mills was also Faith fully employed to the Fame end. As her younger Sisters and Brothers came to a suitable age she summoned their ready help while she was the ruling directing Genius and moving Power into undertaking the result was that after some years of persistent efforts the mortgage was lifted from the farm and the old Home was free from every claim that others held upon it. Then she decided that he old House must be rebuilt and re Uraih Heck and the grounds beautified and when a this was done the Brave girl went Back to the Home of her childhood with three Sisters and one brother to pass the remainder of their journal. A pretty Bird store acid Shell store hundreds of softly tinted and fantastic shaped sea shells and a thousand hop Ping chirping Happy Birds and there enters an amiable Young couple from the Inland country who Ore so absorbed in each other As to be oblivious to the gaze or comments of the world around them. She has upon her innocent head a Daisy of a Bonnet truth Daffodil trim mings and he supports on his head no less an object than the identical leg Horn hat his father who is a Justice of the peace was married in. She looks at the Birds because she in a woman and he at the Sheila because he is a Man and by and 1 by he carries a Large convoluted Shell to where she is whispers in it and lays it with Loving care against her Pink ear which was so pretty that it seemed a reflection of the Shell itself., she listens comprehends blushes fairer than any tinted Shell that finds itself cast1 naked from its bed on the open Shore takes Down the Shell replies to the who Speier words and holds it with both hands against the ear of her Stalwart Lover and then they both smile and look ineffable nothings and turn their Heads away. What were those whispered words that lingered and will linger in their hearts As Long As the murmur dwells in the Dainty sea Shell what were those words that started a song in their souls sweeter than that Carole by any Birds there when Beautiful morn Irig waited upon them in purple and Gold and reminded them of their singing with the Rustle of its breezes they were the old old words that Young lips will forever love Providence errors of Type and Telegraph.

Since during the acts of sensation Aud intellection phosphorus is consumed in the brain and nervous system there arises a necessity to restore the portions so consumed or As the popular expression is to use brain food. Now As every one knows it is the property of phosphorus to Shine in the Dork. And. As fish in a. Certain stage of Putre Active decay often Emit Light or become phosphorescent it has been thought that this is due to the abundance of phosphorus their flesh contains and hence they Are eminently suitable for the nervous system and Are an invaluable brain food. Under that idea Many per sons rework to a diet of fish and per Suade themselves that they derive advantage from it in in increased vivid Ness of signal improvement in the reasoning Powers. But the flesh of fish contains no excess of phosphorus nor does its shining depend on that element. Decaying Willow shines even More brilliantly than decaying fish it May sometimes be discerned afar off at night. The shining in the two cases is duo to the same oxidation of Carbon not of phosphorus in organic substances con Taining perhaps not a perceptible trait the latter element. Yet surely no loud Ever found himself rising ton poetic Fervour by tasting decaying Willow Wood though it ought on these principles to to a better brain food than a much larger Quantity of fish.
