[\ HER WISH. •‘I wish my fairy would come to-day And brush the dust from these rooms away { “The cobwebs, too, on the ceiling higth Empty traps, with never a fly— “Row horrid they looki Upon my life. The torment of every tidy wife'. •*I wish my fhiry my place would take In the kitchen, and let me see her bake. *• FY>r r m so weary I really dread The thought of kneading a batch of bread.” Her husband heard her wish that day, But scarcely heeding it, hurried away. At night he locked his oiflce door. And gladly entered his home once more. As round the cozy room he glanced. His eyes with pleasure fairly danced. The flie-dogs of i>olished brasa I'or burnished gold almost would pasa His easy chair was in its place— Beside it beamed a smiling face. No wonder that he turned to her. Half husband and half worshiper, And said: “ Some fairy has had full swwy In e\-ery nook of our house to-day." Forgotten were dust and cobwebs high. And there was a light in somebody's eye; For the heaviest tasks that burden a wife Grow light when They brighten another's life. —Kijb^rt L.

'•Oh, Molly Bates! before I\1 be such T» ’fruid cat!" sbouttMl Frank Parsons, a> he saw Molly elinib a tive-rail fence and scramble tip into an apple-tree, V>*x*Ause Mr. Way’s great df>g came Utrking down the road. Poor Molly sat clinging to the l>ough of the tree, pale as a girl couhl be with tlie hotrlth}’ tan of out-door life and summer suns on her face: trembling all over, eyes full of terror, and just ready to scream, when Mr. Way called off his great English mastiff, slip|>ed the chain under bis collar and k*d him away, growling like distant thunder. Molly ci*epl down, and Frank went on: ‘•Before I’d climb an apple-tree Vanse I wa< 'fraid of a dog!" Molly '«ahl nothing; her eyes were full of tears, for she liked her cousin Frank, who was spending the summer in Newiield, and yet she eoiild not tieny that >he wa^ very much afraid of the dog. Molly wa^ eight ye:ii> older than Trank: a bright, ^weet girl of seventeen she had never known her New York <‘onsin> till this summer, for they bad iK-eii in Enrojx' almost ever since Trank wa< l>orn, as hecrT»--ed the ocean at >ix month" old: ami tin* lljrce older Parsons children ha«l only b<*en to Newiicld once, when they were very young.

Frank Inid l>een sent tn Newiield thi" summer because the family c;uue back from abroad t<K> laic to put him in school, and tliey did not want him at NewjM»rt,or Saratoga, or Lenox; so he was sent to his uncle’s in Newfield, and enj»)VtHl him.-clf as heartily there as ever a boy «lid enjoy country lif«> with kindly, generous rei-dtives. Ami Frank likixl Mollv veiy niueh; she was the oldest of Unele Bates’ two children; for little ‘•Axe," as "he called herself,was only four, ami went by the name <jf ‘•B;iby” half the time, hoIkkIv ever using her real name of Afdisah. i Boys do not cure much for small children but are apt to tancy tliose older than themselves, and Frank tcK>k a great liking to Molly: she was always ready to go with him on the hills after berries: to >how him where he could dig sassafra.'. pick wintorgreen, ñnd black birch for its odorous twigs, gather flag-buds, or honeysuckle apples: and she could "how him every cold brook for two miles about where he could catch small trout, that Aunt Mary would fry for his supper. And Molly w'as such a pretty girl, M ith her soft hazel eyes, nut-brown curls, and rosy cheeks, all lit up by the sunniest smiles, that Frank admired her very much; but, alas! Molly sank a great many degrees in his esteem when lie found out how afraid she was of a big dog, of a cow that was cross, of father’s fast horses; even of the turkey-c<x*k tliat came gobbling bu.-tling and attempting to fly at when "he crossetl the barnyanl with little i-ed "hawl on her shoulders Frank thought a girl ought to b« brave as a boy. ami quite despised MuUy becaui»e, he saiti: *“'She's a real, old cowaixl! *Frai«l of a dog! }KK>h! I’d just as lives slap that dog in the chops as not!" ‘•1 wouhln't try it ef 1 was J'ou," dryly remarketl Hiram, the hired man. “Molly knows more'n you do al>ont that there dog: he's uglier ’n all possesseil. Way’s try ill’ his level best to get rid on him, before hayin', for he’s bit two of their folks a'ready.” ‘•Sho! he wouhln't bite a girl, I don't believe." “I dono asrhe would, an' I dono ^/.«¡ he wouldn't; but I wfjuldn't run no resks, not very fur," answereil Hiram. “Well, she’s 'fraid of Bill an’ Joe." “1 wd."h't 3'ou wa". 1 dono what v'our folk" think on’t, but cf voii wa" mj- boj* vou -lioiihlii’t no nion* «Irive them voun<r hosse?' than nothing!

And Mrs. Bates had told Mollv' not to ask her father to sentl her aw.ay to School, because he could not uffoixl it. Mrs. Parsons had learned all about Moll3'’s wish from Frank, who ha«l no scruple about asking his cousin questions; an«l as Mr. Bates had refuscsl to consider Frank as ain* thing but a w elcome visitor all that long summer, it ivlieveil his mother from a great sense of «obligation to offer M«olIv’ a winter’s schooling as well as her boar«l; for Mrs. Parsons knew that Mr. Bate^ was not reall3* able to be as generous as his nature made him. MolU' was delighted, .and her nimble fingers at once began on the needful .««•wing. The Newfield «Iressmaker came for a week, and cut over Mrs. Bate's w(Hlding-<lress, .a «lark bine repjoed silk, for the girl's gown; there was a gru3' merino bought for school wear, anti htst 3'ear's br«>wn one spongetl an«l altereil for a cluinge; a little rtound, felt hat with a band «)f v«dv(‘t, for eveiy da\*, ami a dark blue velvet turban for Suntlavs, came from the milliner's shop in Tauton, an«l with a ber.vor cloth black sacqne atid a blanket shawl, Molh-’.s list of outside we:«r was completeil. She Wivs to get some gloves in New York and a pair of overshoes; all the rest of her STarments she :ind her mother ha«l mad«*, and th»’3- were warm and abundant.

Frank was not there, I or she might have la»en ha])]>ier autl I moi'e at home. When Amv left her to ; put her hat aud sacque in the closet, ' «mpack her trunk, an«l brush her hair ' f«>r the late dinner which was just read3', Molh’s heart sank likclea«l: oh, if she were onl\’ home again! but she resoluteU* put the thought awav; sh«» w:is there at her own wish; she was going to school without exi>ense to her father; she wouhl not give wa3* to regret or fear: the wonls Hiram said t«> her as he >hook hamls at the gate when she came awa\' flashed across her. “ Keep3’ourcourage up, Mollv'; don't let outsitles daunt 3*0. Your folks here t«i home is wuth more to 3'c than the hull cit3‘. Think o’ that.” M0II3' did think of it, set her ro«l lips firmU', and went tlown to dinner in her old brown dress, her heavy shoos, her simply-knotted hair, as self-possessetl a girl as Amv' herself. I'ncle Parsons w:is a kin«l-heart«Ml man, veiy busy abr«*ad, very pleasant ami conlial at home; but his C3'es werek«*en. He hivd not been in bnsinos.s thirty 3’ears without learning to know people bv their fact's; yet he was a little puzzled to-tiav’. Frank had talked a gi'eat deal alx)nt his summer in Newfleld, and had given his father an idea that MidU' was a prettv’, weak-hea«le<l, perhaps sillv, little country girl. He could not make this face and that character agree. Next da3’ Aunt Parsons took M0IÍ3' to school. She meant to wait till she had somew hat ehangeil the girl’s dress, but Mr. Parsons obj«K;te<l. “»See what sort of stuff’ she's made of, Frances; let her find her ow n level. If she turns out to be a doll, dress her: if she's a good-for-n«>thing girl, wh3' you can change her attire if 3'ou want to; but she will be w'orth it." However, Molly stood the test. The school-girls laughed at her scant, short dress, and she laughed, too. “You can’t expect a countr3' maid to be in the last fashion, girls," she said. “I’ve come to learn, and I shall learn st3de, perhaps, as well as French aud ph3 siologv." She made absurd apologies for the noise of her shoes. “Yon know I came from the Old Granite State; you must expect me to be heavy, and have a solid undei-stand-ing!" The girls were conquered b3' her cheerful front an«l readiness to laugh with them. Molly remembered Hiram's old ."aw: “ If you softly touch a nettle. It will sting you for your pains; Grasp it like aman of mettle Not a single sting remains?" If the girl was sometimes homesick nobod3* heard of it; she wrote and received fre«(uent letters: her own al-wa3's full of ev'ery pleasant thing she could gather to tell to mother. Alida and Any were all the time on the wing: balls, parties, tlinners, visits, filled their time, so that M(*lly saw veiy little of them. When winter realh* s ‘ t ill Mrs. Parsons bought Mollv’ a handsome fur-trimmed cloak, and a muft’ to match, and one day Any took her out "hopping; the3” went into a milliner's whore Ainv' wanted to order a little lx)nnet for the next evening, as she was to join a party f(vr the trJiOrH. After the w hite plush and blush roses had been discussed and agreed on, the voluble milliner turned to Molly, w'^hose pretty rosy face shone from Under the brim of her blue tUrbaiil “And you-. Miss? What shall I do for ^on?’’ “toothing; thank yoit,'' said Mollvi “Oh! but I’ve thcver3' bonnet for von here—a 6e6e bonnet! Just your 3*«)Uth-ful style, ami matching your fur."

Tli«* ehiltl was nearly erazv' w'itli the sights anti st>uiids of the great eitv, :in«l Moll}' never had hartler work in her life than walking with Axe tlown Broatlwu}’. She never dared trust her with an}' one elVe; but Axe was eager to go with Frank, evitlenllv thinking In* wonltl not restrain her as Mollv tlid. One dav, as she turned from a wintlow' full of to vs, where she hatl kejit her ]»atient sister w'aiting at least fifteen minutes, she saw Frank a few' steps oft' going down the street; suddenl}'.she pulled her hantl from Molly’s ;ind ran after him. Mollv followed, thinking naturally lliat the child would overtake Frank, autl that he w'onld st«>p till she caught up with them; for he had never been anxion.s, in spite of Axe’s entreaties, to gnitle her through the eit}'. But boftire Axe quite roaehetl thebty he turnctl to cross the street, hurrying to dotlge the lieav}' vehicles that crowded the roadwa}'. Mollic flew, for she saw an omnibus rolling down right above the crossing, and nnconseioiis Axe trotting along regardless of dau-ger. One moment of htirror, a swift spring, and Molly had 'caught Axe’s dress and pulled her back, but slipped herself, and the horse nearest to her had trodden on her arm ami broken it, bef«>re the lookcr.s-t>n could stop the omnibus, or the tlriver saw' what was the matter. But the horses were stopjied just before the wheel w'as about to cross the jirostrate girl ; and she was lifted from the mud, the uninjured hand still grasping Axe, who was roaring with fright ami anger, Molly opened her eves on the sofa of a shoe-store. Axe kicking and sere:im-ing in the arms of a strange man; lier own dress covered with dirt, and her left arm hanging helpless; bnt she eoultl tell w here sh/ belonged, and a carriage w'as sent ftn* at once. Poor Mtill}'! her holitlays w'erespoiled. Axe W’as sent home at once in great dudgeon, and the bruised and broken arm was five long weeks painful and helpless before slie could again use it. In all that time she w'us so patient, so enduring, so cheerful, that every one of the household became deeply attached to her: and the first day she was able to come to the tilnner-table Uncle Parsons said, with a tw inkle in his c}'e: “Frank, 3011 ii.sed to tell me Moll}’ W'as such a coward; and here she has faced down a milliner w’hom neither Alida nor Am}' would have dared to encoiint*'!'!" “No indeed!’’ thev both chorused. »‘Aud diiigged her    sister    íropí under a pair of omnibus horses; and had a compound fracture set without a cry.

Acqalren the Soft Blandishments Which Insure Success. “Well," said the canvasser, putting ills portfolio on an cidjacent desk* while he presentetl his autograph album and produced pen and ink from a secret recess in his vest, “Now let me tell }'ou that gall is not such a pre-eminent in*-grediont in a book canvas.ser’s make-up as 30U and u great many other persons seem to imagine. Our first lessons are taken from the Bible, which teaches meekness and humilit}'. A real book canvasser never loses his temper; he never gets angry ; he never argues ; but he graduall}' leads the conversation into pleasant channels, and makes life as agreeable and enjoyable to all around him as ho possibl}' can. The only resistance a true canvasser will make to :in3’body is w'hen his calling is impeached. He is early taught to stand up for tlic honor of his calling, in spite of all that may be told him of it. There are black .sheep in every flock, and all men should not be held responsible fpr the sins of a few'. “ The best w'a\', though, to illustrate our teachings is to tell 3’ou how’ we vvtirk—and all w’c do comes out of our t>f study, as }'ou call it—our bt»ok of instriiction.s, as we call it. We tlc]>oud on ourselves b) the largest possible extent. Sometimes we have a helper, that i.s, ;i gentleman or lad}' of a certain noigiiborhood who, in consid-cratitui of a free cojy of the book, iii-trotliices us to certain people, but the great trouble about helpers is that they insist tin talking anti recommending O    O ytmr w'ork after intrtiducing you, there-b}’displaying their interest and injnr-Ing 3'tiur prosjiects. It is harder to keep tilt' ‘ lu;li)crs’ quiet than to get alting wiiliout them, so I chotisc not to have them. The jKiwer of influence we, of course, fully recognize—but it is the influenet' of example b}' leaders cither in socitU}’ «>r business. For this reason we am alwav's glad to have gt)«)tl names tt) show — some names ill the builtling, in the bltick or in the immetliate neighborhood. On apprtiaehing a gentleman w hose subscription w't* desire to secure w'c liave .several things to considei', and I shall mention them in their order. We generally' ascertain the gt'utleman's namt', and we make it a l)t)int never to forgot a name once ao-quiretl. It is plc:isanter aud more effective to c;ill :i man by his name when vou meet him the time bc-c:»iise it makes him feel that his import anec is appreeiated, and that his bmie is ntil eonlinetl to his famil}' an«l iniinediate friend.s. After meeting him W’t' look him squarely in the e}’e, and, w'ithtint staring him, hold him as the aueient mariner held his friend with his glittering orb. There is great jMiwer in the human e}'e, anti, besides, it shows that v«>n are not doing any thing tlnit vtm ai'e a"ham«*tl of.

If wt; are canvasslng in families anti there are ehildrcji pre.sent, we notice them anti sa}' nice things alxmt their Ititiks or comini*iit on their resemblanec to the head of the house. “ The next thing after .seeuring attention is to create a desire on the part of the person to see what }'ou’ve got, for tlesire must precede demantl.

Louis Globe-Democrat. SOCIAL ETIQUETTE. Needful Observances Wblch no L>adj or Gentleman Will Neglect. A 3'oung married couple, who had been most favorably received by the best society of the town where they began housekeeping, were surprised yyhen, in a year or more, the interest of their little yvorld, in regard to them, had apparently ceased. They received no invitations, and their card-basket was no longer habitually filled. What could be the reason? It simply lay in the fact that, being unconventional by nature, and careless by training, they hatl been too unceremonious in their treatment of their acquaintances. The}' yvere absorbed in each other’s society, and it yvas an effort to think of the outside yvorld. Consequently, although they yvere well pleased at receiving calls, they often postponed re-riirning them for months, and sometimes neglected going at all, hoping, meantime, that people would “call again." There are certain observances which the person yvho desires to rank with ladies and gentlemen will not neglect. The rules of etiquette are not merely arbitrary; as a general thing, they .are founded upon cony'cnience or kindliness. To return the call of a stranger yvithoiit delay is to express one’s appreciation tif his kindness in paying the y isit. Replying to an in-vitati«)ii immediately 011 rcceiydng it, enables the sender to make definite idans, anti is, morcoyer, a suitable display of gratitude for the attention. To express tme’s thanks for a gift, yvheii it must be done by letter, yvithoiit alloyv-ing one mail to iutery'ene, is to make praetic:il demonstration of one’s pleasure in having received it. There never yet yvas :i social occ.asion in yvhich promptitude failed be a virtue, except, perhaps, in the case of English dinnerparties, yvhei'c tlie guest is expected to arrive after the specifitul hour. Many people are both ignorant of conventional rules and careless by nature; but e.asual :ic(piaintance.s can not be expected to make allowances for them, on aecount of these disabilities.
