Miss Sally Strong was a peculiar woman For sixty years she had retained her name, which exactly suited her bard nature; and the man having the assurance to ask her to ex change it for his own, would have been a rare companion for Cummings in his tiger hunts in the jungles of Africa. At least, no one in the village of B would dare to question his manhood. She was one of those who seemed to hart been born an old maid in perspective. Before she arrived at her teens, she used to stone the boys, with a malignant delight; and ere she ?u out of them. her contempt for the opposite sex was strikingly manifest, that all prudent young men. if accidentally walking upon the sime side walk, to avoid a meeting, would very quietly cros.; to the other side and" allow her the whole of it. Yet she was a pmileged person, and people would smile at an ill-natured remark from her as though it were a compliment. Even the young minister of the parish treated her with marked respect, although he was certain to have his last sermon wonderfully criticised, in answer to his kind inquiry regarding her health. The secret of all thi* might have been written in three words?she was rich; and even the clergyman was worldly-minded enough to desire to be on good ternu with one who was the largest contributor to his support. Aunt Sally, as the villagers universally called her, had received the bulk of her property irum a deceased aunt, which her shrewd busi ness qualities had enabled her to invest so advantageously that she increased in ^wealth as she did in year*, and. like many other rich f>oople well advanced in life, had scores of af octionate young relatives, who each hoped to obtain a large slice of the cake of real estate which would be cut up in the event of her de cease Her cold gray eyes were too shrewd not to see through their eager attentions to the very selfishness of their source. One nephew, however, did not belong to this class of schemers On the contrary, the old lady was very often the victim of his jokes, and he would dispute with her just for the fun of having a hot argument. \et for any real scr vice, ahe would oftener apply to him than any one else. She had even loaned him a sum sufficient to stock a fine store, but still this Frederick so often annoyed and vexed her that public opinion?extending no further, of course, than the limits of this village?was equally di vided as to whether he would be the favorite heir or be cut off with a shilling. One evening, upon the meeting of the parish sewing circle at the house of the clergyman, this nephew perpetrated a joke upon his aunt, the result of which he never forgot. She, un like most maiden ladies, considered these gath erings a sort of fashionable nuisance, but uaual ly was present in order to indulge in her sarcastic remarks. Her nephew was there os tensibly to wait upon his aunt, but the fair Lucy, daughter of the worthy practioner, Dr. Blood, particularly allured him with her charms. { " Did it ever occur to you, girls,*' said the old lady, " what you are here lor?*' "To be sure, aunt.*1 answered one of her nieces. " simply to make clothing for the poor heathen," 4 Where may these objects of your great pity reside?*' ?? O. iu Siam. Burmali. and other like places.| * Indeed" Well, heavy woollen shirts are very serricable garments, upon my word, for the people living under a tropical sun. They wtll doubtless be very grateful for clothing so suited to their climate . ' -Well done, aunl !*' exclaimed Frederick. ?' A good ahot and no mistake. But these cir cles are grand affairs, after all/' " Grand affairs, indeed, for young men to say s-vft things, and silly girls to listen to them! tirand affair* to dispense the accumulated go#sip of a month ! Grand affairs for scandal moving, and for everything but the purpose they profess " And Aunt Sally looked about her with a triumphant glance, as though ber charges were unanswerable In fiu-t, too many felt the justice of her rebuke to measure words with her Even Frederick agreed so much with her in the abstract that he was content to remain silent. Having achieved such a moral victory, the lady con tinue! in unwontad g?od humor duriug the rest of the evening. When the party broke up, a* Frederick wa3 taking leave of his young friends, with his aunt upon one urm and the fair Lucy upon the other, the old lady suddenly rcmeuibcrod that ahe had left her muff. ?? Oh. never mind, aunt," said the yonng man. " I will get it and send it up to you in the morning " *? But I do mind. Fred. Strong, for it is not ay way to leave things about iu this manner. But where ean it be? I certainly left it with my Loom: and ekftk." ?? Where can it be?" echoed all heraffection ate nieces, diving into sundry places in their eagerness to assist in the search. " Somebody must hare taken it!" cried one. "That is impossible," answered another, " for aunt's muff is unlike all others." u That is as true," said Fred, laughing, ' as a barrel is unUke a two gallon keg. * And he gare Lucy a mischievous glance, which she in terpreted to mean that he knew the where abouts of the missing article hotter than any one else. " It certainly is not with any of the ladies' things aaid one of the young relations. ? 0, plague upon you all r ' was tho kind re ply ; 441 must nunt it up myself, 1 suppose." " Deacon Gray, you have not taken aunt's naff by mistake, have you !" asked Fred, ma liciously. That functionary drew himself up stiffly as though the imputation was unworthy of an an swer. and stepped aside. '?Well, I never!" exclaimed one of theyoung ladies. ?? Who could have done it ?" added another. * Be silent?will you cried the irritable maiden ; ** or tell me wbere I can find it." "Why. it is in Deacon Gray's bat. pressed in tightly that we cannot remove it. "O. fie upon you. aunt' Such a hint, and . the deacon only a recent widower!" exclaimed the laughing nephew Aunt Sally seized her muff, but the hat al tered mont affectionately to it. By an angry wrench it was liberated, and the unoffending hat flew across the eulry. projected by the vig orous foot of the incensed maiden When it ar rived at the terminus of its short journey, it had atsuuie 1 a most questionable shape, and its condition might certainly have been termed " shocking bad. '* ?? I will pay rou for thu. young man " '? Don't trouble yourself, dear aunt. So far as I am concerned, you are entirely welcome "You will perhaps tell me that you have had no hand in thi? matter ?" "No. I will tell you no falsehood about it; but 1 intended it as a joke upon our stiff dea con. as mu<*h or more than upon yourself. " At best it is but an ill trick you have play ed upon me. and now mark my words; You shall have reason to remember this muff to the latest days of your existence " " As you please, aunt, since you take it so seriously ; but I didn't think a'illy joke would have thus offended you.'* Tim* thu? passed on. and young Strong pros pered famously in his busines? He bad amassed sufficient means to be enabled to repay his aunt the <am she bad loaned him. she declined re ceiving it. alleging that she preferred to have it remain on 4interest. In the meantime he had nI so persuaded the gentle Lucy to share his fortunes. As for Aunt Sally, a singular mania seemed to possess her In the matters of real estate, stocks. Ac., she had become a perfect aVhemist. turning all to gold The neighbors looked on and wondered, but none ventured to remonstrate with her. Sho was often seen to visit the office of Squire A?, and it was rumored that she was making the final arrangements for the bestowal of her property after ber decease The affair of the muff was not forgotten, and it was current with the good villagers that Fred would have to pay dearly for that joke. One morning the village waa all action. Dur ing the night the spirit of the redoubtable lady had quietly taken its flight. She wna fonnd dead in her arm chair, and had died aj she had lived,^ alone. She had alarmed no one during the ni^ht, nor had she suffered previous illness, i Curiosity, of course, was inteuse on the subject of her will, and it was produced as soon ae de cency would allow. All her connections were present, and their eager, hopeful, anxious countenanccs would have furnished a rare sub ject for the pencil of an artist. The reading of the will proceeded until it was finished, except a simple codicil. Each of her relatives, ex cepting her nephew, had been remembered? some to a greater extent than others, but none considerable. At all event?, not one-third of her fortune had been dispensed, and as the codicil only re mained. all eyes were turned to Frederick Strong as the lucky one after all. Hut what was their surprise, when they found it only made him recipient of her old sable muff and contents. The word 'contents' again excited their curiosity, and. to satisfy them, the article was produced, and found only to contain a simple paper sewed on to the lining. When detached and opened in the bold hand writing of Aunt Sally were found these words : 4* Dkar Nephrw.?You will doubtless ap preciate this, the last joke r shall ever be guilty of, as I appreciated yours on a certain time you remember. God ble^9 you and yours. Farewell." Frederick declared he w/is satisfied. The old lady had fairly retorted upon him. and he certainly deserved nothing better at her hands. But what had becoineof Aunt Sally 's money 7 ?that was the mystery, and it became more than a ; nino days' wonder' to the worthy vil lagers, who discussed it on evory occasion. She was known to have large sums of money at various banks, but all this the anxious rela tives ascertained was drawn out a few days be fore her death. Squire A was consulted, who had drifted the will, but he stoutly main tained that the will covered the whole of her proporty and he would have nothing further to do with it. One evening, about six month? after the old lady's death, while Frederick was conversing with his wife, the subject of the muff was intro duced. '?That was a costly joke of yours, dear Fred?'' said his wife gaily. " But I got the muff at all events. Lucy, and what is letter, no one. has come forward to claim the three throusand dollars which she loaned me. 1 feel confident that she intended to pre?ent it to me and therefore destroyed uiy note."' ?? Let us have a look at the old relic, Fred, if the moths have not eaten it wholly up. I will return with it in a moment.'' The muff was produced, and. as Lucy, pre dicted. the lining was wofully moth eaten. ' My dear wife, you must look to this, for I frixe it dearly on good Aunt Sally's account. think you had better rip out the lining, and renovate the whole with camphor." Lucy took her scissors and commenced at once upon the task. " What can the old lady have stuffed it with, I wonder ? Why, Fred, instead of cotton, she has wadded it with dirty brown paper." "Dirty brown paper, indeed! exclaimed her husband, springing from his chair and catching her hand, as she wa* about to throw a bunch into the grate. Why it is bank notes, or I am dreaming." The mystery of the word "contents" was now explained. Note after note was drawn out until more than thirty thousand dollars lay on the table before them. A letter was also found from the aunt -which stated that sho al ways intended him tor her heir His own note also came to light, from which his name had been torn off. This new revelation of course created an immense excitement among the vil lagers. But Frederick aud his wife kept on the even tenor of their wealth, simply, but for themselves. One evening, during each year, they opened their splendid mansion to all. It is u famous affair for the villagers, and is known as the anniversary of " Aunt Sally's Muff." Tomatoes?Theik Valuk. Sokts, Mode of Cpltcke?We will mention here oniv the varie ties for the table. Tbe I .urge Red is the most common. It is good, as every one knows, and is quite sure to vield well, if only moderate care is bestowed. The Large Smooth Red is just like the first, oulv it is free from indentations, and is more easily freed from the skin. The PearShaped has a reddish pink hue. is very fleshy, has fewer seeds than those mentioned, is as good for stew ing, and is hitter for picking, being more Arm, and of liner form. If you have a hot-bed, you have, doubtless, sown some tomato seed in one of its cornc-K Give them plenty of air and sun, and Ije sure to keep them from chills and frosts. If you have no hot-bed, buv some plants of a neigh bor or gardeuer who hasbrought them forward in a hot-bed Do this, we say, when the weather b Tomes *? tt ed, and p 9 it them in a warm bed sloping souin, protected irom north winds and all cold. Cover them in some way, all cold nights. Or you mav get plants (n this way : Fill a shal low, broad box with tine mould, and plant the seeds in it, covering them very slightly. Water the plants generously as they come up! and give them plenty of sun and air, as above. Take them in when there is danger of cold rains, or cold wind?, or frost. When the time comes for plant ing out, prepare a bed as above suggested, and transplant the plants without removing the earth around each plant. This can be easily done. If the seed* are sown very thinly in the box, and if i a sharp knife or trowel is used in removing them from it. I'laiit them about three feet apart. Hoe them well, and when they set for fruit, pinch off the extreiueties of the branches. This makes the j fruit earlier and larger.?Ohio Farmer May 16 J Mad Dogs *ot Foc.no i* the Tropics ?It I was with some surprise we learned that on Satur day the Board of Alderman was called together, by a communication from the Mayor, to take some actioii lor protecting the good citizens of Mobile from the dangers of hydrophobia, ami that the Hoard of Aldermen did actually pa.s? an ordinance for that purpose, imposing upon our people tbe most annoying inconveniences It is, or ought to be, well known that hydrophobia does not exist iu the tropics, and our vicinage has heretofore protected us from any instances of the kind.
