“I have been thinking almiit
Mary fora month or ntorejwe did
not do right by Mary.”
“You must apelike for yourself,
father, and not for me. I told
you that Charlie Snow was good
enough for Mary; but you thoglit
she ntigh have married Farmer
Adams’ son, who was so much
richer. You were always a hard

God knows it, and you know it

I beg of you, at yuur..time of life,

Deacon? It would be a pleasant

In the morning, Grandfather
Gray hitched up old Robin Gray,
—that was the lurnily horse,-and
rode into town to his bankers.
“How much ready money ',ave
“Twenty-five hundred dollars.”
“I watjt to give my daughter,
Mary Gray, five hundred dollars
hud it must reach Fort Dedlock
before or on Christmas day. Now
I want you to tell mo the best way
to get it to her.”
“Does she live near a United

‘.‘Send it by express; we arc

packages, shall we send yours to

‘Noneat all: if the money is
lost, it will be refunded.”
“Well, you fix it up all right;
you know how better than I do.
You want me to sign my name?
“Is that all?”
“Yes, Deacon; it will be all
“Well, I declairo,” said the
Deaeon, “it don’t take long to fix
things if anybody knows how.”
Granmother Gray also had been
very happy. She told John, the

new as ever: what a want of mon
ey books are, I do declur, thrown
aside like an old garment for
moths and rats to corrupt. They
shan't lie here doing no good: I’ll
send them all.”
Grandmother Gray had a very
p retty col lection of picture books,
unsoiled nudais good as new; they
luid pictures of the cunningest rab
bits, squirrels, deer,birds and oth
er creatures, with stories about
them; she added these hooks,along
witli slates, pencils, paper, pens,
iuk, envelops and postage stamps.
“I don't know any thing about
Mary’s boy, but if lie's like the
other Grays, he will be very lond

learning in that ohest.” solilo
Now, so far, the collection of

when she went home again she set
Betty, her hired girl, to make six

during the honey-moon, aud as
they lived at only a town, she
wrote her father a note* requiring
a concideiable amount to buy her
outfit,and she stated in it that she
expected she would have to send
to the city to get all she needed,
whereupon the old man made the
the following reply:
MDearrst DAtianTBn,—As you
are my only daughter, I may call
you dearest truly, for I love you
very much. I • havo considered
your nolo, aud this is my reply;
I am sorry to see you pussesing a
weakness of most ot your sex, viz:
than you have a largo out fit for
your wedding and honoy-moon.
When I married your mother, she
lmd but two calico dresses ami
other things to fit, and she thought,
herself well off with them, aud 1
really thought her id n calicodresB
the prettiest, sweetest girl iu the
land, and have never thought oth
erwise. She bus made me a dear,
precious wife, and has been to me
t help-mate indeed. Now, my
lour child, I will not refuse you
what ton ask, hut my observotion
n life Inis convinced me that the
g i ls tvlm spend it heap of money
to provide their outfits in mur-
riage are generally sure to spend
a heap of it afterwards, and that
they keep their husband's nose to
the grindstone of misfortuue and
toil all their lives.
“A great many fine things for
your wedding and its after inci
dents will make you no Bweeter or
prettier to yottr husband,and make
you a great deal -dearer' to his
pocket. If the man of your choice
really loves you, as no doubt hs
does, it is not for what you have
on, but lor the qualities of your
person, head and heart; and as he
is a man of sense,! havo no doubt
he will think more of you when he
finds that you have not made any
great preparations for your war
ringe. There aro many geutlo-
nicn in this country, now worth
millions, whilst- wives when they
weie maimed, had it > more than
| your mother. By this 1 do not
iiu mi win should nut have no

t-ui.t you have now five neat every
