FBLDAY JULY 14, 1876.
Be tliou familiar, but by no means vulgar;
The friends thou bast, and their adoption tried,
flrapple tbem to thy soul with hooks or steel.
Beware of entrance to a quarrel; but, being In,
Bear t that the opposed may beware of thee.
iive every man thine ear, but Tew thy voice;
Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judg
ment. CotIy thy habit as thy pnrso can buy.
But not expressed in fancy; rich, not gaudy,
For the apparel oft proclaims the man.
Neither a borrower nor a lender be,
Tor loan oft loves both ltselfand friend;
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.
This above all to thine own self be true.
And It must follow as the night the day.
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Why He Loved.
"What do you love me for?" said she.
"Because you are so pretty," said be.
She did not know whether she liked
the answer or not. Admiration is very
sweet to a woman. She puE her head
down on nis snouiaer.
"u, uuarnei" sne saiu; "if 1 were
ugly you think me ever so much nret
tier than I am, you know but if I were
really ucly. wouldn't von love me? I
should you. Oh, if anything hurt that
dear face, or made you less strong or
graceiui man you are, I snouia love you
even more, x Know."
Men have no tact. They can't help
it, poor mines ! Trie husband of a week
laughed as he kissed the sweet upturned
iace ana saiu :
"Don't imagine all sorts of things.
"Why didn't you fall in love with that
excellent Scotch gentleman who was all
mouth and cheek boue? Or crooked
little Jones? You like a big fellow, and
one that was not absolutely hideous, in-
nieau; ana i i appreciate virtue ana
learning, but I did not love Minerva
Hobble in spite of that. I loved the
prettiest little girl in the world, because
she was the prettiest and sweetest.
She kissed him, but afterward she
said slowly, and in a half whisper:
"I hope God will let me die before He
makes me ugly. I could not bear to
live if you did not love me."
They had not been married a month.
They were on their honeymoon trip
even men. niey were very much in
love he as a man is, she as a woman
is and that is in quite' a different way.
.Not that I find fault with that. It is
but natural. Men and women always
io everything aitlerently work, play,
idle, even fight differently. Why should
they love alike ? Bpt the knowledge of
mis tact doesn't come to a woman until
her first love has been wintered and
8ummered,aud the knowledge isseldom
.Nettie was loved. It should have con
tented her, and she told herself so, but
sne would have been hannier if Charlev
had said just what she wanted him to
say. it made no uillerence to that uon
eymoon, however. They walked and
chatted, and sat together in the moon
light. They rowed up the river, and
wandered through the woodland, and
11 aa sucu a summer as people never
have but once; then they came to the
city to their every-day life. Ah ! the
sweet commonplaces of home life, when
it is the home of married lovers ! And
there was no cloud to mar their days for
many nappy months.
At last, however, the time came when
they must part for a little while.
Charles found it necessary to go to New
uneans on business, and JSettie could
not accompany him. Charles did not
like the parting, but he took it pliilo
sophically, a9 a man must, but Kettle
neany cried Herself blind.
Only a few weeks, he said. It was to
be two months. Nettie gave the time
its wnoie value. When he had kissed
her, she clung to him almost couvul

"My little one, don't be foolish," he
said, and he held her more closely to
mm, ana was on.
But he thought of her a9 the train
flew away. He thought of her as he
trod the streets of strange cities and sat
alone at strange tables, and he dreamt
of her all night. But she wore his let
ters in her bosom, and be tucked hers in
Once his letter was delayed, and she
was sure that something terrible had
happened, and was just saved from
nervous fever by its tardy arrival
Once hers did not come; he took
coolly at first. "That confounded post
man has made a mistake." he said
But after several days, he concluded to
make sure that all was right, and tele-
"If well, answer at once."
Just then, if be could have sent his
spirit home on the telegraph wires, he
would have seen this picture:
His Nettie lying on her bed listening
to tne doctor :
"I am sorry to say it is the small-pox
madam," said the gentleman; "but, af
ter an, under good treatment, it is n
worse to have the small-pox than it i9
many other things. There is no danger
in this case."
"Small-pox," murmured Nettie
herself. "Small-pox! and Charlie
loves me because I am pretty."
The answer that came to Charlie'
telegram was :
jNettie sent it by the nurse, who
agreed that there was no need of fright
euing the poor man. "And I would not
nave bim return now under any consid
eration," she said. "He might take the
the disorder.'.- But that was not all her
Then there was a time when Nettie

Charlie only knew that, as he was pack
ing nis portmanteau to return home,
letter was brought him. He thought it
ma wiie a handwriting, and he had had
no letter lor many days. He tore
open, it oegan, "sir." it was no

But those pretty personal belongings

land in which we live that troubles us,
but the heart's woeful depths. Nor can
sea or sky give us relief. An unhappy
man would be no less unhappy could he
traverse space, and visit all the stars,
only we don't think so when grief
stings us to go somewhere. To be at a
distance from the scene of our great
trial is always tne longing or the un
Charlie did not say much he never
talked of his wife. But when the ves

n one of the berths, tossing to and fro,
and muttering again and again a wom
"He's been disappointed in love," said
the stewardess, and cried over him, and
thought that had sue beeu a fair white
lady, and be in love with her, he never
should have been disappointed.
When they reached tne snore, the de
lirium was over, but a pale skeleton
was borne to the shore, arrd to Mrs. Bos
ton's on a litter.
"Take him to Mr9. Boston's," the
captain bad said. "She is a kind wom
an, and will do what she can for him;"
and Mrs. Boston, who had boarded more
sea captains and ships' officers generally
than one could count in a life-time,
opened her hospitable doors and gave
the invalid her best bed-rootn.
"I don't mind sitting up nights ; and
Nancy is a real good girl she'll help !"
said Mrs. Boston.
Nancy was a shy young woman, with
brown hair, short ou the neck, and her
features were deeply marked with the
small-pox. blie wore the plainest pos
sible dress, and never seemed to be
happy; but, since she came to Mrs.
Boston's door and asked for work, she
had been invaluable.
"Nancy Smith is a treasure," said
Mrs. Boston ; "and I only wish I knew
what she cries about so much ; only
can't ask questions no more than if she
was a lady."
i'oor JNancy Smith! She was ner
vous, no doubt, when she had stood be
side the young man's pillow a moment.
teuo turned pale and gave a little cry,
He was in a sort of Btupor and did not
hear her; but Mrs. iioston said :
"I hope you ain't overset by the sight
of sickness, ma'am."
"Oh, no! I'm a splendid nurse. Do
let me nurse him, Mrs. Boston. I'll do
my work all the same."
And thus it came to pass that night

the invalid, He slept or was insensible
even the doctor was not quite sure
which, or that he might ever open his
And when Mrs. Boston had gone to
bed, and all was silent, that strange
girl, JNancy, behaved most strangely,
She knelt down by the bed and kissed
the pallid band that lay so gently upon
tne counterpane, and whispered over
and over again, "O, my darling! O, my

bo the night wore away. The tread
of passing pedestrians and the rumble
or veuicies died away. Silence lay on
the city, and the light of the late-risen
moon fell white through the crevices of
the green shutters and the lace of the
droopiugcurtains. A night lamp burned
in the room and showed a face with
closed eyes. The clock on the mantle
ticked slowly. At the appointed time,
medicine was to be triven. It was
dropped between lips that never resist
ea, ana lay always just u littlo apart.
"He is dying," the watcher thought
"ne is aying."
xsui toward dawn a chance came.
The head turned upon the pillow. Th
"Kettle," whispered the voice; "Net
tie, I want you."
Then this girl this jNaucy Smith
started, trembling, to her feet, and
knelt beside him. Her face was close
to his when his eyes opeued, and he
looked at her.
"Nettie," he said aeain. "Nettle."
then burst into a feeble, quivering
laugu, ana clasped her about the neck
"JUy darling," he said.
And she cried out:

She turned the light high and lifted
it ana held it to her face.
"You see plainly?" she said.
"ut course," saiu ne. "Why, my
dear little girl, I haven't dreamed that
part of the letter. You've had the
small-pox, but you did not die. What
does it all meau ? Am I entirely crazy

"And you love me?" she persisted.
"My precious little wife, how can
help it? It's part-of me to love you,
Then it means that I have been

All Nettie auswered was :
"You said you wouldn't love me if
was ugly, audi couldn't bear it!"
Mrs. Boston just then enteriner unex
pectedly, explanations became .highly
necessary. And the doctor said this
excitement should have killed so very
sick a man. uut it uiu not.
The reunited couple were soon able
return to their deserted home and have
another honeymoon. And it is a fact
that, though the rest of the world knows
very well that Nettie's face is not as
pretty as it used to be, Charles does not,
for the beauty that love sees comesfrom
tne rosy light of the glasses it wears,
ana bo enaures.
"How one thlnir brinirs un another!"
said a lady, absorbed in pleasing retro
spection. "Yes," replied the practical
.uooos, -an emetic, ior instance."

THE .GRANGER CHURN,
A new invention.
Makes the best of butter
With the least attention.
Now all good dairymen.
Who would a reputation earn,
Should make their butter
In the Granger Churn.
It makes more butter
From the same amount of cream
Than any other Churn
That ever was seen.
And It makes It so yellow,
With such excellent taste,
It Is the pride of the seller,
For It sells In such haste.
The grocers all want It
The butter I mean
To supply all their customers,
From laborer to queen.
It will churn in live minutes,
I am happy to say,
And does not waste time
Like the old-fashioned way.

Speak in complimentary terms
And say they will use It
In preference to all other Churns.
