Oh 1 the snow, the htwatiful snow. How the flakes gather nd laugh as they go Whirling about in the maddening fun, Jv pl?y* in its glee with every one, Chasing, Laughing, • Hurrying by!

How wild tka crowd goes swaying along, Hailing each other with humor and song 1 How the gay sledges, like meteors, pass by, Brigbt for the moment, then lost to the eye, Kinging, Swinging. Dashing they go, Over the crust of the beautiful snow; Snow so pore that it falls from the sky, To lie trampled in pmd by the crowd rush ' hj, To be trampled and tracked by thousands of fct, Till it blends with the filth in tha horrible street. Once I was as pure as the snow—but I fell! Fell like the snow flukes, from Heaven to hell; Fell, to be trampled as filth in the street; Fell, to be scoffed, to be spit on and lat; Pleading, Cursing, Dreading to die.

i ty ?” and the speaker, a tall, muacular, well looking pay Ruling Farmer reddened to the roots of his hair, aa though bo bad committed aomc very wicked act, instead of asking a simple question. He was bashful, extremely ao, was Josiah Hawley, at least in the presence of young ladies, moat of all in the prea , enceufthe girl ho lore J. No young t farmer in all the country possessed tt better kept farm, or talked with more I confidence among hia compeers of stock ’ and on kindred subjects. Hut the glimpse of some pretty face or foot, 1 coming in hia direction affected him ; like a lash at lightning. On aueh oc eaaiona he never know what to do with his hands and eyes, nnd always felt like screwing himself into a mouse hole How he ever contrived to approach Ilea- I ler Thomas on the subject of Isas pref erence for her, probably reiraiua to thie I day as much a mystery to himself aa it ia to others. - ~ Bui that young iady had quite ah amount of tact and etoraenaM stowed •way somewhere ia bar petty little . head, albeit it was set on tha dimpled, . inexperienced shouldern of seventeen Jottnh wet worth in n worldly wny, much morn than any of her unitors, good looking and intelligent enough to antis fy any hot an over-fastrdtous person; unexceptionable, in short, bartlng his exeeaaive baahfalneea, which was a fruitful source of merriment among the young people in tbeirKitle circle. And ao when Jotiah in hia awkward blun deriug wny, began to exhibit hia prof -1 treneefor her ia rarion little ways, such aa waiting on her to and from the •■aging lohoul, constituting himself her taeort when she rode oo horeebnek to , Ike solitary church in tha woods, and singling har not at quilling parlies. Ilolly look it all iu thueaaioat, pleas antest manner possible. The girls ■ laughed, nnd the young men etuoktd J sly jokes at tha expense of her timid suitor, but Hetty stood up for him iw-> depvndeotly—encouraged him oat of hia shyness ; never noticed any an for tuaute bluiukr—und very likely helped him along considerably when hts feeling reached the culminating point/* one moonlight autumn evening, os they were walking home together from prayer meeting. That wan a week ago. Hot ty had said, “Vea," nnd had agreed to “bring father and mother around on the subject.” Josiah bad not been to tho house sinoo—probably feeling very much like a dog rcvituriug upon the premises of a person whose sheepfold he had just plundered. As yet neither had the courage to speak to the “reigning pow ers” on tho subject; and Hetty, feeling as* if she wanted to put the ordeal off uh long as possible, at any rate to hare one more confidential talk with him on the subject, said: “Mother ia going to Aunt Roth's to spend the evening, and wants me to go. Hut 1 guess I won’t. I’ve been work iny on father’s shirts all day. besides doing the dairy work, and I'm an tired as I can be. Ho I guess they will have to go without me. Ho not come until eight o'clock. 1 shall be putting things to rights then, and will let you in. Of course Josiah was not too oblnsc to understand that, and forgot his bash ful ness so hir ms fee petition for a good bye kies, which was peremptorily re fused of course. “No, I shan't. Do take yourself off. Think 1 didn't see you tidgoling around •Sarah Jones, at Deucon Budget's la.st evening ? I’ve not forgotten that sir!” “Now ilctty—” But the appeal was broken off by a tantalising little laugh, and as he sprang forward to take a pleasant revenge on his tormentress, she slipped away nnd i ran up the path to the house, where be saw her wave her band as she disap peared within the fcitclicu porch ; and then he turned from the gate and took the road homeward. The tea things had been carried out. the table act back against the wall, the crumbs brushed from the clean home made carpet and Hetty's work stand drawn up in front of the blazing fire.— A bountifully piled waiter of great apples and a plate of cracked walnuts were on it in dose proximity to Hetty’s work basket. On one aide of the fire sat Mrs. Thomas fat and fair, and at peace with all the world, rucking and kuuting, and refreshing herself at sundry intervals with a bite from a half eaten apple that lay on the cornerof the table, and touch ing e ery now and then in a caressing manner with her fool, a lazy looking out that purred and winked on the rug be fore her Hetty sat on the other side, sewing and busy in thinking how she would tell her mother that she expected Mr. Hawley to drop in about eight— But she recollected with a twinge of conscience, how hard fhc hud tried to get tho old Indy to accompany her bus brnd to Aunt Ruth's in spite of hei forewarnings of neuralgia; how she had also plead bcad.iche as an excuse fur not going herscll. Ami she knew that her mother was quite sharp enough to draw her own inferences from these tacts, and from her being dressed with unusual cure to spend an evening at home “1 shall not dare to tell now. She’ll be sure to think I wanted together out of tho way, so I might have Josiah all to myself, and 1 should never hear the last of it.” And so like a wise lit tle puss she kept silent. 1 will venture my word on it, you would not have wondered at our ytuag fanner's desperate enthrallment if yon could have seen Hetty Thomas as she was sewing by the fireside, on that cold November eveui >g. Under pretext of being ready to go to her Uncle's fa thing she had no idea of doing,) she had, just in dulged in an indiscriminate “fixing up.” A neatly fitting dark calicoe, with a store look upon it a fresh linen collar, and a tasteful black silk apron—these were the chief items of Hetty's toilet; but she looked as sweet and dainty in her plain dress as if hoars had been spent in donning lace and jewels. Her rich hair of the darkest auburn tinge* fell in shining folds close to her warm rod cheeks, and was caught up in a cunning net behind. Right o’clock and past 1 Mre> Th iu as was doting in hot chair—her shadow on Ike opposite wall bobbing about in grotesque mimicry, as she nodded to and IVo—now almost falling forward, and her fat hands listlessly in her hip. and her hall of yarn had rolled out up on the hearth, and puss was busy cou , vorlin it into gordion knots. And just then came a double rap at the door—so loud, sudden an aelf-nt sored that Hetty started up. with a lit tle shriek, and aether foot oo puss' tail, i who in tarn gave voice to her amaze , ment and displeasure. The combined noise aroused Mrs. Thomas, and starting to an erect p*wi -1 lion, she rubbed her eyes, settled the cap border, and exclaimed, “Bless my soul. Hetty, what was i that?—somebody at the door ? Whs , can be coming here at this time o' i night?” t “It’s not late mother—only a little • past eight o'clock. I’ll go nnd see who - •.” wya Hettio, demurely, taking the candle from the tabic, i “No. Hern, you wind up my ball ' and sweep up the hearth, while I go to • the door. ’ aaya the old.indy, whoso feet I. were struggling in the meshes of the unraveled yarn. “l)it that eat !'* And ell thin life Josiah was stand i ing on one foot out on the cold porch, I * with Ms band* in his overcoat pockets, I! wondering If Hettio had fallen asleep, (and every now and then giving the f 1 door a smart mp byway of variety. In her hurry, Mrs. Thmnns forgot to tke the candle, and w Hie stepped out into the little front entry, the aitting room door alaromed after her. Hht had her hand on the handle of the door at the moment, nod opening it she sudden ly lound herself in the embrace of r. Mfout pair of arms; a whiskered fare in close proximity to her own; and before she could think about the strangness of her situation, she received a prolonged kias—a hearty smack—* full upon her virtuous matron lips. She had by this time divested herself of the impression that it wok her usual ly sober spouse who must have come home in an unusually excited condition thus to indulge in such an unwonted expression of ufleclbn ‘‘Get out I Get out, I say I Who are yon. anyhow? Murder! thieves! Hetty! come hero! Here's a man kissing rue like mad !” But the intruder hud by this time discovered his mistake—it did not need the indignant pummeli )g and scratching of the old Indy’s fiate to erase him to relinquish his bold and fly as if pursued by some indignant ghost. Hetty, neerly choking with smother ed laughter, in spite of trepidation, uow came to the rescue “I was never so frightened In nil my life I — (he hmd scamp! Who can it be, licttie?” But that dutiful daughter war-, to all appearances, as innocent ns a turtle dove. She soothed the old lady by representing that it might have been out* of (he neighbors, who. haring drank too much, had mistaken the house and the housewife. She searched the entry for the om i sing spectacles, dropped in the scuffle ; re-arranged the rumpled cap border ; wound up the tangled yarn; stirred tb i fire—all in the most amiable manner possible, and at length had the natixfoc- j tion of seeing her mother subside into her chair and her custumary tranquility. Mrs. Thomas was now fully awake. She hud a new idea in her head, and in stead of Hettlingjtersclf for another nap, she pursued the train of thought and hor knitting at the same time with won derful rapidity. A t length stopping and j looking keenly at Hetty, she aid— “l suppose it’s a queer idea of mine, Hetty, but I’ve a notion that that man was ’Siah Hawley.” My I but if Hetty's face did not fire up thou. You might have lit a candle by it. These incipient symptoms did not escape the wary inquisitor. Tear* so to me. Because (hose big whiskers were so much like his'n, and the swkward way he grappled mo with his great paws*" . Hotly was wonder.ally bwsy. Bhe bent over her work and drew the nee dle through so quickly that the thread snapped, aud then she was so much en gaged in threading her veedle again that he didn't have time to answer. ' “I don't believe that kins was meant fur me after all. Wonder who it wm* intended lor ? and 1 wonder if yon don't know something about it, Hetty ?” “Me! mother ?” “Yos, you, Hetty. You was mighty anxious to gel me and pup off to Aunt Martha’s ibis evening, but 1 net Iced you were slicked up extraordinary, for all you waru't going. Now. Hetty. 1 am getting old; I know it; but haven't quite lost uy sight yet. I’ve heard something about this between you nod 'Siah Hawley. Now what are you playing poMum for? Out with it, I ►ay r Our little schemer, thus adjured, made a clean breast of it, much relieved to find that “mother hud nothin agin him,” and would “give father a talk about it, and bring him round.” “But, Hell it*, 1 want you to tell ’Siah I'd rather he'd not make such a mis take agaiu. I don't like to feel his big whiskers about my face, uud 1 don't ap prove of promiscuous kissing.’' ’Siah never heard the last of that blunder. Old 'Squire Thomas used to delight to rehearse the atory whenever all parties interested happened to be present. He would shake his fat sidoa at Josiah's discomfiture and Sirs wife**’ tart replies, and Hetty would join him, and both would laugh until tho tears ran dowu their cheeks. “Never miud, ’Siah.” Mr*. Thomas would consolingly, “let him laugh. He had been only too glad to have been in your place twenty years ago. He hud , bard work to get a kiss from me then. And 1 hope it will bu a lesson in you and Hetty agin the impolicy of conceal ment and underhand doings of all aorta. <'arlai UTaa aklat.
