THE LAST SIXPENCE. It was on a chill, bleak morning in November that Charley Aubrey emerged from on oil shed where he paf-hcd tho latt pait of the night under ;i pile of sheep skins. AH young Aubrey stood there now his lips were parched and his limbs bhook as though with tho palsy. He mechanically placed his band in his pookot and drew therefrom a sixpence. 11 o searched in every he could find no more. That single sixpence was the last of his fortune. 1 Ah, Charley, he mur- mured to hitu.self, 'you've run your race. Where now arc tlio friends who have so long bung about you?

Amos Williams stood at I he great desk in his countinp-room, and he wag alone While he thus stood, casting up a column of figures upon a page of one of the the door was opened and Charles Aubrey enterpd. He was yet pale nnd hazard, and looked as he did .when we saw him two hours The merchant started baep with an ut- terance of pain and surprise ab he rec- ognized in the miserable form before him the once happy and beloved youth whom hfi had delighted to honor. he uttered, as soon as he could command his speech, why have you come here Mr. spoke the youth in a chokinc voice, I havo come to to to tell you that my course of vinked- ncss is ruu, and from this moment I am Here he stopped. He hesitated a moment, and then his feelings overcame him, and bowing: his head he burst in- to tears, and sobs loud and deep, broke from his lips. The merchant was deep- ly afFeoted, and the warm tears gather- ing thickly in his own eyes, he started forward and placed his hand upon the youth's head. he uttered in a tremulous eager voice, have you resolved to bo a man With God's help, I will be a man was the youth's reply.

This morning I had one solitary sixpence left, and that I gave to But 1 am now I have not doulitcd jou, but I would prove you And now, if jou please, you may iaform Mrs. that you gluill board with her no more She will not bu dih.ip- pointed, for I have fpukcn to her on the tubjuet With these words Mr. Williams left tlie store, and us soon as Churles could recover from llie s'ranire emotions had almost overpowered him, he called for the porter to come and lock up, and then, having locked up the great he look his departure.

Evening came, and Charles Aubrey accompanied his old friend home. Tea was ready, the rest of the family having eaten en hour before. After tea Charles was conducted to tho sitting room whore Mr. Williams informed him he could amuse hiuiself by reading. Charles sat down there and hia em- ployer went out, but he could not read. Thus he sat when the door was slowly opened, and a female appeared within the apaitment. With n quickstep he sprang forward, oud without a word he caught the fair girl to his bosom. he uttered, as he gazed in- to the sparkling eyes of the fair being who still clung fondly to him, yon. still love forgive me trust mo once J bhe murmured; aud ere she could speak further her father entered tho room. you've "Ay, dear diaries; and you know why I did it. you remember it And an eho spoke she drew from her bosom n small silken purse, nnd took therefrom a sixpence.

Ay, I know her She is an unfortu- nnte creature, and has suffered much I bade her if she saw you were cast down and repentant, to send you here, for I heard ycsterdiy that you were at the foot, of the precipice Now if you are determined, you shall not want for help." In eager, broken, sobbing EentonOCf, when you were the lowest down, she loved you the most. She came to me and asked me if she might save you if she could. I could not tell her nay. and she went al the work She has suffered much, and, Charles, it remains with you to decide if her future shall be one of happiness or not. She knew that you were down, that your money was gone, and that your false friends had forsaken you. Then it was that her love for you grew bold and strong. She wondered if you would repulse her. She knew not what might be your feel- ings, and to save herself the pain of di- rect repulse from you she assumed a disguise, so that she might approach yoa without being know, and yet pain some idea of your feelings, and save you if she could. I think she has done well At any she has retrained you to herself, and it must now be your fault if the silken tie is loosed again." With these words the father left the apartment.

Alter the faruio.'B, those we mean who cultivate gardens, raise a good sup- ply of vegetables, they often fail to re- alize the full benefit of their labor from alack of knowledge how to keep them. This especially is the case with squish- es and that class of vegetables that re- quire to be kept comparatively warm and dry. It is quite usual for them to put them in a pile in the cellar, and then woudi-r that ihcy rot. Squashes, pumpkins, find all that class of vegetables, rcquiie first, an absence of light; tccund, a dry teniperatare not exceeding 55 or 60 degrees and third, to be so placed tint one does not eome in contact with an other. We nave always had success in keeping them well into spring, by plucina; them in a cool, dry chamber until freezing occurs, and then removing them to a closest for safe kcepins over winter. Thus Ilubbard and other hard-shelled varie- ties may be kept until May and eren June.
