" Woman's work, it is truly said, is never done. I must hurry off home and see how poor Mary is getting along. She did not seem at all well wht-n I left her at dinner time." " You don't expect to cook your sup per, do you . remarked an employer in the establishment where Mr. Peterkin was engaged, speaking with a slightly sneering expression. " If cook should happen to be out and wifey sick, w&s the smiling answer, the kettle will not fail to reach the boiling point through my neglect or in difference. That s a fact."

" They are well enough in their place, I and exceedingly useful," was answered in a tone affectedly gay. Then he added more seriously, as if to do away with any unfavorable impression in regard to I his home-relations that his words and manner might have created, " I leave to my wife the entire management of the I kitchen and nursery, and never trespass an inch on her prerogative. It's as much a* 1 can do te maintain the household. Uer department is entirely distinct from mine. She never interferes with me, and i. award to her a like immunity." il if a meal ia late or badly I cooked' asked Peterkin. *'I grumble, of ceur-e?perhaps scold,"' I said the other.

I should like to know what you do under similar circumstances ?" i -I haven't the trial often," returned Peterkin. : ''You're lucky then, that's all I have to say. I suppose you raise such a stonn when there is any defect, that your wife receives a lesson which she does not care I often to have it repeated. I think I your remedy." perhaps, if you would, said Peterkin smiling. " When a meal is late or badly cook ed, you mean ?" I "Yes."

This, of course, I stifles impatience, aud a disposition to complain. In the second place, I know that she is sufficiently annoyed at the defect. To increase this annoyance by faultfinding or fretfulness, would not only be selfish and cruel on my part, but create a state of feeling in my wife that mubt increase her unhappinesi, and cloud the whole happiness of home." "And you say nothing about it ?" ex c.aimed the other in surprise. ** Not a word. The pleasure of mere eating and drinking do not constitute the whole of domestic enjoyment. If the meal is not quite so good as expeot ed, so much the more necessity to in crease, rather than diminish, good feel- J ing, which also has its office of recrea ting and strengthening.

She has a new girl in the kitchen, too ; one, in my opinion, not much to be relied on. Good evening, And the young man started off with a! jtght, quick step.1 The one with whom he had been talking felt strongly inclined to utter a sneering commentary on the declaration of Peterkin; but certain con trasts between his own home conduct and that of his business companion were presented so vividly before his mind that in very shame he kept silent.

The glass of water was quiokly brought, for lore in that household wis ever prompt in action.

Peterkin went to the kitchen, where she found the promise of an early tja even worse than she had anticipated. > it there wis % kind of miric in bfr presence that quickly gave a new aspect to everything. A slight, but skilful re arrangement of the lire caused it to bora clearer, and a few prompt directions to the cook brightened the ideas of in dividual wonderfully. Just as Mrs. Pe terkin s hands were fairly in her work, the babe, which had at first bsen par tially quieted through Carry's efforts, began to scream violently. Oh, (kar, dear !" exclaimed the mo ther, whose nerves were already so ex ited that she only maintained exterior composure through the most earnest vllort. 44 What is to be done? I can'I bear to hear that poor sick child's cries; and if I leave here there is no tellin* when tea will be ready." It only needed an impatient word from her husband to destroy the equilibrium ?or which Mr. Peterskin was so bravely Sniggling. With him. at that moment rested the happiness of his little house hold He w us depressed in body from weariness and hunger. lie had looked i jrward to the evening meal with plea sure, and had expected to find it as usual on the table. Instead of this, be found his wife in a slightly worried state, and the supper he was so fully prepared to enjoy .far from being ready. It hadeost him a little effort to hide his disappoint ment on discovering the aspect of affain, when he first came in ; but he gave ut terance to cheerful words, and tbe6e restored cheerful feelings. Left alone after his wife had gone to see about the evening meal, and his little daughter to quiet the baby, Mr. Peter Kin s thoughts diverged into rather an unusual channel for him, and he was so cially saying to himself "A little for*. 8 P*1* would have prevent ed thiK, when the baby's loud sereams disturbed him. It was rarely that he suffered any thing to annoy him at home. 2s ow, however, he did feel worried. A a exhausted body left an exhausted mind. Over his countenance flitted an impa tient expression, and a few contracting lines shadowed his forehead. For a while he sat, the screams of the baby fluttering his nerves. Then he arose, and was atxjut passing into the kitchen to say, half impatiently. <4 Do let supper alone and go up to the baby," when a bettet thought was barn of a better purpose ; and, instead of doing as at first iochoed. he ascended to the chamber, and, taking the child, quietly soothed it with gentle ?ones and loving words. V\ hat a magic power to awaken dis cord or produce harmony was possessed by the husband and father in that little point of time! The good and the evil impulse were for a moment evenly bal anced, but good preponderated, and a calmness fell upon the slightly troubled waters of his pleasant household. And such power every husband and &the> possesses; yet how few use their influ ence, at all timet, well and wiseljr! So interested did Mr. Peterkin soon become in the now quiet and happy babe, that he forgot all about his hunger and weariness ; and when supper was at last announced, he took his place at the table in a pleasant frame of mind, and commu nicated to all a measure of his cheerful spirit. If he noticed that the tea waa a little smoked, or the toast burnt at tha edge, he did not speak of it, and ao re lieved the mind of his wife, who felt worried at these little defects in their evening meal. Baby cried no more. After tea she fell off into a natural sleep, and did Sol awaken until the next morning. ?? Won't sew this evening, Mary."said Mr. Peterkin, as his wife took her work basket and drew up to the table on which she had just placed a lamp. 44 It's only a little mending," she re* plied, with a grateful look at her hua band for his kind consideration ; and it must be done to-night. It won't take me long." " Woman's work is never done," said Mr. Peterkin. " I wish I could help vou, but plying the needle is out of my line." 7 "Yon can read, however," answered his wife, with one of her pleasant smiles 44 ami that we can both enjoy."
