the New Kngland year.
1 was helping father dig potatoes,
one day. late in the fHMMjenl was
about nine years old. A flurry of
snow had fallen, just cue i;b remind
us that winter was setting in. Father
always put things ofrtll!ie last min

Late in the afternoon i'.itlier sent me
to the house, and mother Went out and
took my place in the licld. My feet
were over the worst of their aching,
and li''id piled the green " nod in tlie
1'iv- niaias. and laid dowijAu tin- floor,
with ttfy bauds iijiderfny bead, to
watch the sap sizzle and putter, and

came a rap on the door. Mid, without
wailing for an answer, in i-ame a
stranger, well bundled in fur cap and

"Guess so," said I. hitching along
to give him half of the fireplace.
The man tame up eagerly, like one
who had tiavelcd long, and was weary
and chilled, and spread out his hand's
before the lire, as if heat was a luxury
"Where's your folks?" he asked,
glancing down at me, for I hadn't the
civility to rise.
"Are they around?"
"Digging taters !"
"Rattier late tlait, iifc't it?"

"Do you think I could get a bite
"Could I stay here to-night?"
The man unbuttoned his coat and
seated himself, letting his boots steam
before the coals.
After a little he rallied again, as if
unaccustomed to he quiet.
Where's your mother, my boy?"
".And you taking your comfort 1m

1 explained -to him that I was
obliged to come in on account of my
feet, and then, for the first time, he
seemed to notice that they were naked.
"Have you no shoes?"
The man raised his head and gave a
sharp look around the room, his eyes
wandering over the shelves, a.' if miss
ing something. Thinks I to myself
Have you anything to read here?"
was the next question.
"There's part of a Testament on
the high shelf."
"There's some almanacs, some
where, but pretty much gone."
" Anything else? Books, for in
stance?" "Guess not."
Now I actually had never seen or
heard of a newspaper In my life, so I
said, sheepishly, "(iuessnot."

from his keen, black eye. "Yon guess

The man looked at me with an ex

he handed me, with the remark. "The

I was on my feet in an instant. I
spread the sheet on the bed, and never
shall I forget the delight with which
it was examined. I could not read a
word did not know my letters even ;
but there came, with looking at that
paper, such a longing to read it, that
I absolutely plunged both knuckles
into my eyes, and uttered such a lub
berly howl as brought the stranger to
"What's the matter?" asked he.
"I can't read it," said I.
"Don't you know your letters ?"
"Bring tlie paper to the fire, and
lot me sec what we can do."
Tlicn he tool, a pin from the inside
of the lappel ofhls coat, and bade me
pay strict attention.
'1 am one of nature's schoolmas

yonr letters In an hour."
By this time 1 was wide awake, you
may lie sure.
'Do you see that letter? It is A.

This generosity won my heart. The
next morning he obtained my father's
permission for ine to go to the post
oftlca every Saturday, in consideration
of my general good conduct during the
week. As the postofflce was several
miles distant, and 1 should be obliged
to go on foot, it may seem strange
that I regarded this pennlsgiOn as a

for anything else. 3Iy very icart
stopped beating when the Mpstniaster
looked out, with a pen stuck behind
his ear, and asked ine what I wanted.
"Is there a paper hero for me?"
Who for?" he asked.
"Well, who is we?"
"Tell him your iMft." said a pleas
ant Jooking woman, who seemed to
lie waiting for something, too.
My name ? I was not sure I had
any." i was always called Tim at
home. So 1 called out "Tim'."
Weil, you ought to h ive heard the
loungers' about the place laugh, then.
Even the nice lady joined in it.
"Tell him your father's name,"
Tie's old Tim. and I'm little Tim,"
said 1, feeling as if I must begin to
There was another shout.
It's Timothy somebody," said the
lady. "Please look for a Timothy,
and perhaps von will find it.
Then she put her hand kindly on ;
my shoulder, and patted it a little. )
'Here's a Timothy Scraggin,"said j
the postman, holding hp a paper, and !
peeping into the wrapper.
Then l reinemnereu Hearing a man i

like a pickerel.
When I got away from the village,
I sat dowu on the ground, and took a
good look at my treasure. I hope j
1 may be as happy again, but 1 j

carefully examined every part of the
paper, I studied the wrapper. It was j

The next day being Sunday, mother, i
who knew something about reading,
helped me to spell out the shortest
words, and every night during the
week I devoted all my time to learning
to read if. Before" the winter was
over I could read tolerably well.
A year later, the minister came to
us again, and I stood up by Lis side,
and read some verses which he had
himself? written for the paper. When
I had finished, I saw the tears creep

was leaning on the table, with her
face in her apron.

Leaf Jmpressioxs. Taking leaf
Impressons is a verv pleitsant amuse
ment, especially for girls, and we sub
join tlu following method of tbeoier
atlon, which is said to be a good one
' although not new :
Hold oil paper in tlie smoke of a
lamp oi'of pitch until it becomes coat
! ed with the smoke; then take a perfect
i leaf having a pretty outline ; and after
j 'vanning it with the hand-, lay the
leaf upon the smoked side of the pa
j per, with the under side down, press
j it evenly upon the paper that every
i part may come In contact: go over it
i lightly with a roiling pin. then remove
the leaf witli care to a plain piece of
white note paper and use the rolling
pin again ; you will then have a beau
tiful linresslon of the delicate veins
ami outlines ot the leaf. And this
process is so simple that any person,
with a little practice to enable him to
apply the right quantity of smoke to
the oil paper and give the leaf tin
proper pressure, can prepare leaf im
pressions such as a naturalist would be
proud to possess, specimens can tie
neatly preserved in book form, inter
leaving the impression with tissue
The most cutting stroke of sarcasm
we know of is this : When Senator
Sumner made bis charge against Pres-
ident Grant that he was a great (inar
relcr. a lady, upon hearing it, qnietly
remarked : "His wife lias lieen able
to live with him for nearly thirty
years and they seem to get along very
"pleasantly and happily together?'
