Mid Mr. Henderson kindly; and m its wife followed him to the door, be (> her a good-bye kits and walked with elastic tread down the o??tly graveled path leading to the little white gata. Mery stood looking after htn with a loving eye, and thought, "what a dea. good husband he is! I ought to be very thaikful." It wa8 a lovely day in October, and the breete atoie gently through tb erimton vineleavea clustering around the >iatza of their ooty eottage home. Mr. Hewferson waa engaged ia the meroantile boainaa in the thriving town of Weatbury. Industrous and frugal in bis habits, he bade fair to become a sueceeafnl merchant; and hia you a* wife waa ever ready to lend a helping hand and by her. economy and tact, aided him nwa than either of them realised. Xeverthelea, she waa not always contented with their stll, bumble lot, although she seldom trooblad her huaband with any complaint. Many of ler acquaintances moved in a higher circle o society, and she waa by no means insensible to the inferiority of her furniture and drea when compared with theirs; and it must be confessed that the remembranoe of this fct sometimes caused her an nnhanpy honr. On the afternoon in queation taese repining thoughts thronged unbidden rotnd her heart, and aoon gained undisputed poscssion of that citadel. She turned away from the door with a listless air and ascended the stair* to her * own room. How cheap the pvtty chamber lnokad in (mmdmriroil with Mm Th,,rn. ton's elegant rosewood furniturt! The white window shades, too. were vMty inferior to the costly curtains that draped the windows of her aristoeratic friend; and how low the eeiliDg was! and how mean the iograin carpet . seemed to her ambitions vision! And as ehe began to make her toilet for tbe afternoon's walk, sDe ejaculated impatiently: "Oh. dear! I've nothing fit to wear ! Mj black silk looks s? dowdy, and then I ve worn it so much, and my blue is at least two inches too ehort. I do think Charles night let me have a new dress; but it's always the way, a merchant' wife mast be the last one served. Well," she oonoladed with a sigh, "I mast wear the black;" and as ske fasuned the despised dress sho couldn't help neatally confessing that it fitted her trim form most admirably, and although more than two years old, had borne its age remarkably well. Her ceat straw bat, with its bright fall ribbons and flowers, was very becoming; aid her street baaqae, just the style, although made out of her old cloak Her kid gloves vere not new, bat were free from those untid? rim whinh too man; ladies 1ut? unmended.Sarely thoee artioles of apparel were not ic.c? a ve of extreme destitution*. Before donning her outer wr* pings, howler, she prepared her twelve-#onth boy for his visit to * Papa's store." A ine little fellow *u the pet Charley, and when clad in hie new merino dreed, with e prtty cloak and fancy hat, he mfeht well be lo>ked npon by loving 6TM with fond and proud affection Jane helped her mistresa to 4raw the little carriage down the atepe, and o<t of the gate, and Mrs. Henderson proceeded on her way in rather a more desirable frame mind. She met several ladies who ffcpped to hiss Cnarley, and call him "a jewel" "a beauty," I and "a splendid baby;" and arriving at her hasband's store, he greeted h* with his aoeustoned kindness, and prooily lifted his darling boy from the carriage, and telling his ?nfe to eni >y all she could and be b?<n6 at tea-time, he again bid her "good-bye " Her first destination was Mr Judge Thornton's, the brown stone house <m the hill; she was one ef the tlite of Westbarj. As Mrs. Henderson ooeued the haaw in*i ? ?<< r / ? " 1 walked up the box ed^ed walk, she gazed half it enviously upon the elegant sansion and ita taateful surroundings. The rard waa very large, containing fine treea md abrubbery, vism of geraniuma, and moaxda aI verbena and heliotrope, while a fouitaia threw ita I errata! spray high up in the aitaaa aunahiae, falling again with a musical sound into ite marble baein. She aaeended the marble tepa, and rang the bell, and waa aided by a servant into a dimly-Ughted parlor; aat dovt on the purple velvet tete-a-tete and looked about her. It waa all marble, velvet, and risewood, everything that faoey eeuld devi*, or aat invent; bat it looked too formal, too fraltleaa, and the rial tor remembered that it waa a ohlldleaa home,?there were bo tiof fe?t to tread upon thoee gorgeooa oarpeta,-?-no little bands te disarrange thoee curious oraament* on the etecera.?no vouu faaoa to ka rmAmrtmd la those full-length mirror!?tod the mM to herself, " I wunld not gw my Charley for them nil."

Thsy toilad early and late. ! oontrived, pinebarf, and scrimped in their daily living and apparel, that they night hare tbe maaaa far occasional display at parties and at oharoh. Mary pitied them and thought bow unsatisfying must such a life be; all outside show?no pare home enjoyment. And again she felt tbxoKTul for her own less ostentations but farhappior lot. The abort aunmn afterfcoon was drawing to a close, and she bad time [or bat one mori oall. and that was os Mrs. Lane, the wife of her pastor. The personate was aa attractive and obeerfa! looking dwelling, lacking none of the pplitnoes of wealth. Mrs. Land was blessed with a devoted husband, and three beautiful ehildren ; bat she was a confirmed invalid, and Oould not rise from the loutxra in the sitting. room to weloome Mr?. Henderson. She was a sweet-looking intelligent woman, but her life was one of weariness and sufferinc; and only the oonsolations of the religion she not only professed, bnt exemplified in all things, enabled her to endure her pain and languor with so much meekness and patience. Again did Mary's conscience reproach her?with the priceless boon of health, how could she call herself po*r? Bha now returned with a light step, but lighter heart, to the little cottage from whose windows she already saw a light beaming invitingly. The cosy sitting-room had never looked so pleasant to her before; a cheerful fire burned iu the grate; her husband was seated near, reading the evening paper, and Charley was asleep in bis arms. The tea-taWle was BAflf ] V HnrAAr? Anlv AvtlHm* Kap r&tn ?** J hi she laid aside h?r outer garment*, Jane brought in the tea and toast. Charles laid his little boy down gently in the orib, and after giving his wife the aioal kiss of welcome, the; aat down to their evening meal. ' Had a good time, Mary?" was his first inquiry j ' Yes, Charles, it has been truly a good time, for I have learned a lesson this afternoon which i trust will be life-long in its good results. I have been taught that none, however favored, aan expect analioyed happiness on earth, and wealth does n?t bring with it perfect enjoyment I would not exchange my ouiet home, my husband and my baby, my health, and uiy warm heart, for all the glittering treasures that gold alone can buy. 1 have learned that the sweetest of all earthly blessings is content' meat That evening, after Charles had returned to bis store, and little Charley had been undressed, Mary was seated at her work table, but the sewing dropped from her fingers, and she thoughtfully took up her pocket-bible, the gift of her Bainted mother: was it ansel's hand that opened it at the words of the Apostle ' "But godliness with eontentment is great g*in "For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing oat. "And having food and raiment, let us he therewith cont at. ' But they that will be rich, fall into temptation. and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful insta, which drown men in destruction and perdition. ' For the lova of mosey is the root of all evil, which, while soma ooveted after, thay have erred from the frith, and pieroed themselves through with many sorrows." And as Mary eloted the sacred volume, these words sank deep into her heart What better moral could we find for this little story about-'Making Calls?" Scrubbing and Wash ng Tr The Uermantown Telegraph thinks early winter the best time for soraping and wash ing tne trunks or trees. It ia well known to *11 observing fruit grower* that the loose bark of treea is the winter quarters of m jriada of inaeeta, where tbey ?&ourely remain nntil the ensuing spring, when the warm, genial weather warrants them to quit their ooaj homes and begin their destructive operations fur the aeaaon. We have found a narrow saw, rather fine toothed, to be an excellent tool in rasping off the rtiperfiaous bark. It ao?omplishes it more uniformly th?n a hoe, trowel, or other scraper; a trowel, or a short handled hoe, however, la very good, when the other m?y not be possessed. After be bark is removed, the trunks should be washed thoroughly with a preparation of whale-ail soap and water, aaj in the proportion of a pound of the soap to four gallons of water. It can be applied to large trees with a hiokorj broom or a stiff whitewash brush, and to small treea, esp*oi?Uy dwarfs, with the hand aerub-brush. Sickly treea, wbioh can at thia aeaaon ba easily detected by being covered with a species of fnngi, or perhaps more properlT a peculiar insectivorous deposit, hould be sorabbed so as to completely remove (his. The mixture will of itself benefit the tree, while the removal from the stem of all extraneous and Injurious substances, will give to it new health end vigor tbe ensuing season, hi aome instances to a surprising extent When whale-oil soap Is not obtainable, lye may be Km ek/vnU - ? * ww\4, vu? ? aouHiu IIV w vnf iirnnj^, The 14v Bta|ei of Craihiii| Out.

You can not get butter out of milk, if tfcnra Is Done in it. Fe?d the cows well, and thus secure good milk, and there is not much trouble in chnrning even in winter. Keep the cream in warm room till it tarns somewhat soar. Let the chorn be soalded before potting in the cream, to that it will be well heated through and not oool the cream. Let the oream be at a temperature of to to 70 deg , and there will ot be much difficulty in making the batter tome We see it stated that if a little rennet is added to the cream just before ohurning, it will help materially. We think thia quite likely, as it woald help to generate lactic acid. But do not pat in too muoh. 1ROV CBVBHT.
