After Forty Years .
"It won't d~" said old Tibbets,
shaking his head furiuiisly. "I al-
ways have hated those Partridges
and you shan't marry Fanny."
A man's affections"-began Hora-
"Nonsense !" cried old Tibbets.
"You talk like a boarding school girl."
You are of age, I know; but I give
you warning, if you persist, I'll take
that clever little Johnston into part-
nership instead of you, and you may
beg or starve, as you please, for the
sake of a red haired girl like Fanny
Off trotted old Tibbets as he uttered
these last words.
"Give up Fanny Partridge? Never!"
said Horatio.
Meanwhile Mrs. Partridge and Fan-
ny were hard at it-Fanny in tears;
Mr.s. Partridge in a fury.
I'd rather see you in your grave,
Fanny," cried Mrs. Partridge. Old
Tibbets' son Why didn't you choose
a chimney sweep? It was Tibbets
that cheated your pa's brother out of
that piece of property. A bigger ras-
cal never walked. No Fanny; you
walk over my dead body before you go
to church with him."
Fanny was seventeen, and very sub-
missive. Horatio, though five-and-
twenty, submissive likewise. Paren-
tal authority prevailed. One meeting
was allowed, in which the two might
bid good-bye to each other. Fanny
wept. Horatio held her hands in
both his, and kissed them fondly.
S"They may yield in time," said
Horatio, "or something may happen
to alter things. Be true to me for a
little while. I shall never love any
one but you."
My heart is broken," said Fanny,
believing it sincerely. But I shall
be true to you all my life."
Then he kissed her. He never for-
oot how hard it was to take his lips
fom hers; and their arms encircled
each other, and it was really a won-
der that the two young lovers did not
die then and there.
Old Tibbets rewarded his son by
making him partner in the prosper-
ous firm of Tibbets & Co., forthwith,
while Mamma Partridge hurried
Fanny away to the north of France.
Horatio did not forget easily. It had
been a cherished plan of his to mar-
ry Fanny. He had a mind that was
prone to dwell upon detail. All his
fancies about the future had been per-
fectly finished pictures.
It was hard to beleive that the lit-
tle round tea-table would never be set
with painted china : that Fanny, as
Mrs. Tibbets, would not sit beside him
in the third pew from the front on
Sunday morning; that he would not
go with her to choose the color for
the drawing-room furniture; that they
would not have their portraits paint-
ed to hang on each side of the parlor
Fanny was his practical or genial
idea; that they might have walked to-
gether forever in the moonlight was,
perhaps, strongest with her. But had

mance she could not have placed him
on a high pedestal.

be a match at all. They loved each
other too well to seek comfort in new
" Horatio becamine very steady and
shtmned ladies' society, and Fanny,
after refusing an English baronet and
a German baron, declined going into
society any more and settled down
with her mother in a little town upon
the Continent, where four or five
English families dwelling there ex-
changed while parties, and there was
no young English people whatever.
There, at thirty, she was still living,
and then it was that there came to the
place an English traveller who called
upon her. He was a friend of Mr.
Horatio Tibbets and had been com-

missioned to hand her 'a small parcel,
and he was to tell Mr. Tibbets how
she looked and was, and that he was
very well, quite bald for his years and
unmarried. Then the traveller went
away. The gift was a dainty work-
box, worth a good deal of money, and'
in the little box where the thimble

Many despise poplar as a timber, but
it has one golden prqperty-it 'will not
burn. Some years ago a factory at Not-
tingham took fire on the second floor,
and burnt to the tp furiously but not
downwards;, although the floors lay a
yard thick with hot clinkers and melted
machinery, yet it did not get downwards,
because the floors were of poplar.
THE POTATO BEETLE.-It is short sight-
ed business to leave the last broqdsto
breed and increase because the potatoes.
are past' harm. This is seeding for a
crop for next year, which will perpetu-
ate the vermin ,and make' work for
another' season. If a thorough-work were
made of this pest for one s rason by every
one who grows potatoes,'a very quick
end would be made of. it.
POTATOES,--Early potatoes sh,'ul.'l be
harvested as soon, as ripe. .!i-, if wet
weather occurs, the tubers may sprout
and be injured. Rue's Potato
is an effective instrument, designed ex-
pressly for this, work, and. where the
crop is a large one,- it can hardly be dis-
pensed with, if the crop is to be gather-
ed and put away as'quickIly as it should
be. There is no other crop that' -i,.,w.v
potatoes so well as fall Wheat. and no
ground so easily preparedfor. it as pota-.
toes ground. Potatoes may be planted,
and lightly covered wiih the vi es and
boards over these, and remain until

When Mr. Cooley came into church'
last Sunday, he -placed his new' high
hat just outside the pew in the aisTe.
Presently Mrs. Pitman entered,and, as
she proceeded up the aisle her abound-
ing kiirts scooped Cooley's hat and"
rolled it up nearly' to the pulpit.l
Cooley pursued his hat. with feelings
of indignation, and when Mrs. Pitman
took her oeit. he walked l.eck, brush- -
ing the hat with his sleeve. A few '
moments later,. Mrs.' Hopkins came
into church, and as Cooley had, again
placed his hat,in the aisle, Mrs. Hop-
kin's skirts strtick it and swept it
along about twenty feet, and left it ly- ''
g. in 'a denmoralised condition,'
bo6'ey was singing a hymn at the,
time and he didn't miss it. But a mo-..
ment later, when lielooked over' the
end of the pew to see if it was saf he
was furious to perceive that it was
gone. He' skiritished up the aisle'!
aft it again, red in the face,and ut-!,. ..
tering sentences which were horribly
out of place in the sanctuary. How-
ever, he put the hat down, again and.
determined to keep his eye on it, hut,..
'just as he turned his head a way' for'.! -'
a moment Mrs. Smiley came in, 'ad '
Cooley' looked round only in' tihid to ',
wat-ch the hat being gathered iu under
'Mrs. Smiley's skirts and carried away
by tliew. He started in.pursuit, and
just as he did so the hat ,must, hav
rolled against Mrs. Smiley's ankles,
for she gave a jump and yelled i glit ,
out in Church. 'When her husband
asked her what. was the matter, she
said there' must be a dog under hei
dress, and she gave her skirts a twist.
Out rolled Cooley's hat, and Mrs..,:
Smiley being very ..near ,sighted
thought it was a dog, and immediate- '
'ly.kicked it so savagely that it flewI. '
up into -the gallery and lMdged 6n top"
of the ogan. Cooley,perfectly fran-
tic with..rage, forgot .where..he was,
and holding his. clinched fist under
Smiley's'nose he shrieked, "I've 'half .' 1
a mind to bust you over' ~rthe snout!":', ;
Then he flung down his hymn book.,,'-.
and' rushed. _from .the, ehurch'.He,"'-'-
