So Charles Beverly w cJi in Austra lia. She had known tka® before; yet i somehow she wanted 'the doctor’s testimony to make assurance doubly ■sure, bhe was glad; yes, upon the whole, she was very glad, Bhe knew :sho had treated the honest, loving young follow like a heartless coquette; sue know she had half broken his fond, faithful heart with her airs and grimes and false smiles, once upon a time. “I should have been ashamed to look him in the face,” she pondered; “I am glad his aunt knows nothing about it.” And she sighed softly, to think how entirely and radically her whole nature had been changed in tho bitter school of adversity. “I *im meeker and quieter, now,” sim thought; “I should not throw the jewel of. hie love from me a second lime; but he does not —nor ■ever will. A woman can only, sit and think what a blessing that we have but one life to live. Perhaps jn tho noxt world we may correct tho errors of this.” At 10 o’clock precisely the next day Dr. Smith’s carriage came to the door for Miss Raymond and her trunk. “Keep up good courage, my dear,” said the kind-hearted old man. “Miss Beverly is rather trying, they say; hut sho has a heart, in spite of her sixty years and old maidenhood, and you will work your way to it after a while.” Kate hoped so; but sho could not ’help feeling a little discouraged when Doctor Smith had left her alone in the darkened room, with a pair of green spectacles glaring at her from one corner, and a pair of biuo ones from the other. “Shut tho door, if you please, young Mias,” croaked the blue spec tacles. “Drafts aro very bad for my jsister’a asthma. And put a few coals on the lire, Miss Raymond, if that’s your name,” squeaked the green spectacles. “The temperature is altogether too low for .my brother’s rheumatism." Kate obeyed. It was well for her that they had given her something to ,do, else she would h&ye burst out to •crying- The first day as companion was ineffably wearisome. Patiently she trudged up and down stairs, with the macaw's cage, and squirrel’s house, and tho spaniel's basket, and Miss Beverly’s gruel, and the old bache dor'tt .slippers; meekly she listened to directions, and recipes, and ha raugues without end, until her head ached and her feet smarted, and her •little hands tingled with the unwont ed toil. “And now/’ said Miss Revorly, ju A as Kate was looking forward to the refreshing possibility of a little while to herself—possibly a delight ful ten or lifteeu minutes' slumber— “you may get Professor Drowsyhead's Essays from the library, and read me to sleep.” “Yes, ma’am,” said Kate, feebly. “.And if you should happen to hear sno knore, you may read on just the .same, ft would wake me up at once if you were tp stop. And Kate obeying orders read her self nearly into congestion of -the Brain. The next day went harder still. Nothing went right. Miss Beverly seemed determined to be suited with nothing that was done for her, and the old bachelor growled a chorus to The Gainesville Eagle VOL. XJir. her fauit findings. “This gruel tastes very oddly, Miss Raymond,, said the spinster. “J no* believe the saucepan was scalded bat ore you put the milk in it.” “Yes ma'am, it was becaase ” “Don’t contradict me. I can , fc bear to be contradicted.” “Don’t contradict my sister!’’ echoed the old bachelor; and Kate subsided into a meek silence. “And 1 don’t think Muff has been properly washed, Miss Raymond— with two tablespoonfuls of rosewater in his bath.’’ “I forgof the rosewater admit ted Kate, ingeniously; f ‘but ’’ “Forgot the rosewater?” shrieked Mies Beverly, holding up both hands. (tjfy ppor, poor Muff!” gyqaped the blue specta ' --Hp beijeve anything now! clee, “i x '-skater!” r Forgot the ix -'iufi P 4 tkqt rqst “And you have W** ygry iqisphief ling dress that plays n?yj gfiqnge with my nerves. I beg you . it at once, Miss Raymond!’’ . r "And before you go up stairs,* wish you would put those newspa pers straight on tbo table. I can’t bear to see thorn all crooked,” growled Mr. Beverly. Kate set the newspapers mathe matically straight, changed the ob noxious craped-trimmed dress, gave Muif a second bath, with the regula tion quantity of rose-water in it, and p repared anew basin of gruel—and evi m then Miss Beverly was not sat- islit. and. “I think the pairot has drooped evnr t ince you came, Miss Raymond. Are yt u sure .Y ou are not neglecting him?” “I try to do my best ma’am, but—” “Don’t answer me,” groaned Miss Beverly, w,Ui both hands uplifted in front of him’. “If there’s anything that upsets jny nervos it is being an swered !” Day after <Ky passed by in very much the same style, and Kate Ray mond grew palm 1 and quieter with each revolving sun. At first her proud spirit had .rebelled. “I cannot eiadure it,” silo had thought. But then came the bitter remem brance that she must endure it —that she had neither homo nor friends to flee to. And when at the week’s end Miss Priscilla Beverly paid the astounding sum of ten shillings into Miss Ray mond’s shrinking palm, she felt that it, had indeed been hardly earned. “There’s one good thing about you Miss Raymond,” said the spinster, parenthetically, as she counted out the coin, “one quality that none of my companions could over suit me in; you have never got out of temper. You’ve never lost yoqr patience the whole time you’ve been here, I used to hear a year or so ago, when my nephew Charles was at home, 1 , v - v at a Changeable, fickle, impatient little tmng Sre. UyißOPd’s daugh ter was,” Kate colored, and the tears start ed quickly to her deep brown eyes. “No,” said the old bachelor in the corner whose whole life seemed noth ing more iuan an echo to Miss Bev erly’s energetically opin ions; “no Miss Raymond never gets out of temper now.” “J suppose I must L>o very much changed/’eai4 poor Kate; as she went, on with her wearisome \;'ork of stringing steel beads for a purse which Miss Pricilla intended to man nfacture some dsy, “and indeed I hardly feel like tho same person that I was ou my 18th birthday.’’ “How old aro you now,’’ asked Miss Beverly. “I was 20 last month.’* “Humph, only 20! Well, I suppose you’ll be getting married some day, ami I shall lose my companion.’’ But Kate shook her head without looking up. “J shall never marry,’’ she said, “nobody cares for van now.’’ “There James, I told you you’d knock that vase off tho window seat if you insisted on leaving it there,” la moated Misi Beverly, as a sudd.-n crash of breaking nhina interrupted Kates voice. “Run Miss Raymond, and don’t let the water soak into the carpet, for pity’s sake 1 I don't see how moir can be so careless.’’ And for once the old bachelor had no excuse to plead for tiimiielf,, “Miss Raymond,” he said in a low hurried voice, when his sisters tem porary absence had chanced to leave them alone together half an hour or so later, “you said a little while ago that nobody cared for you. That was a mistake.” Rate looked up into his face with surprise. “My nephew (Lihafloo peverly cares for you. He Ims never left off caring for you. If he thought you would: look kindly on him ones more——” But Kate shock her head. “I am euro you are wrong/’ she said trying to steady her faltering voice * “J treated him too capricious ly and too unkindly, I think he did love me once, and I should like to have him know, some day, when he is happily married to some woman who is worthy of him, that I loved him better than he thought; that— that —when I was coldest in my plan ner my heart within me was most tender. It is too late now to Pay these things; and yet ” “But it isn't too late' 1 interrupted the old bachelor solemnly, rising out of the chair, taking off his blue spec tacles, behiud which sparkled a pair of brilliant black eyes, removing the rusty wig from a profusion of chest nutbrown purls, and spurning the wadded dressing gown from him with a contemptuous motion. Rato in great agitation rose to her feet with a Lj cterip scream. “Cnarles!” “Is it too late, Kate ? This last week lnm taught me how good, how gentle and how patient you have grown, and I love you better than I did before. Cau you forgive me for the ruse I practiced to learn whether I might aspire once more to your hand ?” Raymond said “No” at first, but she said “Yes’’ afterward whan Charles had convinced her of the per feet propriety of his conduct. , “And aid your aunt know ?’’ (iALXKSVILI.K, (;a., FRIDAY MOltyiXe. JULY 2.1 1870 “It was she who insisted on it, Kate. She wished to prove the tem per Bhe had heard was so fickle and uncertain.” “And she’s perfectly satisfied,” sounded the spinster’s voice behind them. “Well, well, I see I shall have to look out for anew companion, Charles.” And the old lady’s wedding pres ent to Miss Raymond was a set of diamonds that a queen might have worn. THE WINSHIP IRON WORKS. Manofsctnren of Wiiuhtp’9 Cotton Gin Anil Cotton Presses, |N. o. Times and Journal of Commorco.j Messrs. Winship & Bro. are the proprietors of the above justly cele brated iron works, which the citi zens of Atlanta can and do feel a just pride in having in her midst, for not only the city but the entire South reaps a benefit from this great enter prise. Having frequently heard of J h§ cotton gins and presses made by them, acfc * on “early every planta- tion in South they may be seen, attd w3 quite naturally sought an interview \7.hich was cheerfully ac corded us. These works were estab lished as fat pack as 1853, by the father of the owners, and was successfully conducted by him until 18G I J, when he decided to re tire, and his sons purchasing the entire concern, have since, we are glad to say, continued the business with most gratifying success. Their speciality is the Cotton Gin and Press, both of which are constructed on the most approved plans and guaranteed to be fully equal to rep resentations. They are so well known generally, that it would be impossi ble for us to add any additional tes timonials, any further than to say, while they are selling Gins at largely reduced prices, (as compared with others of first-class make) in con formity to the requirements of tha times, they still keep them fully up, if not superior tp their former ex cellenee’of material and linish. They are prepared to manufacture six Gins per day, or at the rate of oigh teen hundred to two thousand an nually, should the business require it, and will be able to supply all who may favor them with orders. Every part of this Gin is manufac lured at their establishment, from the raw material, and under their personal supervision. Each Gin is run before it lea ve£ i the factory, all tbo parts being properly adjusted, and none is allowed to be sent out that does not run perfectly; in fact, the “Winship Gin” in constructed so substantially, and so perfectly, that it is easily managed, ives no trouble to the giuney, |uq. tR OS break the roll. ’ We hive often been told by planters that they have ginned out their entire crop with out having the Gin to once break the roll, Feed ing tbes fast and heavy does not make them spew, and there can be no Gin which runs lighter, according to the amount of work performed. They will bear a higher spoed, with out injuring the cotton, than other Q-ius. * They claim that they wifi do move work in a given time than any other Gin in the market, and at the same time clean seed as well, and make as good sample, which has been repeatedly proven in public. They have an experience of more than twenty years in the manufacture and improvement of Cotton Gins, and haye added such improvements, from year to year, ac have suggested themselves, and have proved to be good when put into practice. They offer nothjug to their customers until it has been thoroughly tested, and proven to bo useful. They have re cently made improvement in their Gin Brushes, whereby they are stronger, more perfectly balauced, and by the largely increased amount of pure bristles which they are now putting in them, do insure a first-class sam ple of cotton. No planter could or does expect a more liberal offer, and they are fully aware that a cheap ar ticle in this line, or in fact, any oth er, usually proves a dear bargain in the end. The Winship Patent Wrought Iron Screw Cotton Press is acknowl edged by all interested to be the most reliable, powerful and economi cal of all the varjous devices now before the public for pressing cotton, and in order that the very desirable quality—durability—may be secured, it is necessary for it to bo made of the best wrought iron: the east iron screw having in all eases proven to be unreliable. They have had large exuerience in the manufacture and sale of Cotton Presses, and their ob ject has been to get up a cheap and simple press, and at the same time one that is adapted to v/o/k by any kind of power, or in any place; and last, but not least, a Labor-Saving Machine. All this they claim to have accomplished in the Winship Press, They have made large sales of them the last three seasons, under full guarantee, all of which gave per fect' satisfaction, nor has a single word of complaint been heard irom any of them; on the contrary, all have praised them in the highest terms. In fact, the/e is no press that can approach it for convenience in putting in the cotton from the Gin, nor for bailing and removing the bale after it is pressed. While their main business is cen tered upon the above, it does not by any means include all of their pro ductions, as they are fully prepared to manufacture grist mills, saw mills, horse powers and sorghum mills, or furnish castings or wrought iron work, in parts, fur of the above named machinery, at short notice and in the most satisfactory manner, both as regards prices and quality of work. Their works are on foundry street, the various build ings and lumber yards covering fully 21 acres of ground, and some fifty skilled mechanics are constantly em ployed. Their past honorable record and life-long services in the business, certainly renders them entitled to be tho recipients of present prosperity, and any that the future may have in store. GRANT’S PLAN. How lit was to Arrest Tiltlen and Inau gurate Civil War. 1 . Mr. John F. Mines, of Utica, New York, says that some time ago he , held a confidential conversation wiih General Stewart L. Woodford, Uni ted States attorney for the southern district of New York—■ a conversa tion so important that he immediate ly jotted it down for future use. The timo having now come to use it, in his judgment, he sends it to the New York World, which printed it Thurs day. Gen. Woodford stated that in the spring of 1877, while the presidential question was unsettled, he was in structed by President Grant to sum marily arrest Tilden if he dared take the oath of office of President of the United States, and that all the ar rangements were made by Woodford with Seoretary Robeson for placing gunboats in position to shell the citj of New York, and soldiers in th %. Custom House, Post Office an 1 Treasury building, to prevent thei, being seized, as was alleged thef to bo threatened. Gen. Woodfort says: In regard to my acceptance of tht* district attorneyship, I can explain that by letting you into the secret of a little bit of history which may as tonish you, as it certainly would as tonish the quiet citizens of New York. You know how much excite ment attended the decision of the electoral commission that Mr. Hayes had been elected president in place of Mr. Tilden. The air was imme diately filled with rumors of armed resistance to the decision of the com mission. Jfc was openfy stated that in all the democratic States bodies of men were being marshalled and drilled for revolution. Threats were made here and at other points that 1 Mr. Tilden would be inaugurated on the 4th of March in spite of Grant and his army, that the Custom Houses would be seized to create a revenue, and that the democratic president would be seated by a grand popular uprising. * * * * I bnow that .president Grant and his advisers were muph afraid of the result, But Grant, though he was anxious, never hesitated aOout the course he was to pursue. He had determined to use every soldier and sailor and gqu at his oonjnaand to put down anything like a democratic rebellion. If it had been anybody but Grant who stood in the way ? Tilden plight have been inaugurated and have got ten possession of tbo revenues in spite of congress and the electoral commission. When the rumors of possible trouble first got afloat, the ‘•resident, decided that it wap to nave a soldier in this office, some body who had smelt ppwder and, would not bo afraid of a, Now Youl, mob. I was sent for to and there consulted wRh the presi dent and cabinet and his military advisers in regard to the situation, Grant told me frankly that there might be trouble here; that he was seriously anxious in view of the great irritation of the public mind that if there was qn attempt at revolution the blame might be laid at his door, and that he was determined to se cure the inauguration of Mr. Hayos at all hazards. * * * The danger was real; I can assure you of that. I believe that during the month that closed the admiuis ; ration of Grant and opened that of Hayes, the country stood on the brink of a civil war more terrible than > bat which we passed through, and it would have drenched the whole North in blood. If Mr. Til den had listened to his more oner getic advisers and insisted on at tempting to assume the reins of gov ernment, we should have had war iu these streets. * * * * But you have asked what !. intended to do iu ease Mr. Tildon attemted to carry out his coup d'etat and had himself inaugurated on the City Half steps or elsewhere jn this city. My orders and intentions were to seize him at once under a warrant charg ing him with high treason, to convey him secretly and securely on board a government vessel lying in the East river, and ship him to Rort Adams or some other secure point, where he could undergo his trial, The first thing that anybody knew of it he would have disappeared, and the suddenness of the plow would haye either disheartened his followers and taught them a salutary lesson of re spect for the law, or it would have been the first blow of a terrific con ; fiict between the law and its viola tors. “Do you really believe, General, it would have been possible to avreßt Mr. Tilden ? I don’t believe it—l know it. Of course it could not be done by call ing out the regulars from Governor’s Island and marching them up to Gramercy Park, but it would have been done so quietly and effectively that all resistance would have come too late. Just as sure as he had dared to take the oath of office he would have been whirled through these streets aud landed in a gun boat. When he had got through with his trial for treason he would have been sick of playing president. While 1 was in Washington I had a long talk with Secretary Robeson on the subject, and we made all the ar rangements for the use of his boats and men not only to secure Tilden, but to overawe the mob by the gun boats and to shell them out if neces* sary. Under our pians any resist ance by Mr. Tilden would have been utterly impossible. As for the Cus tom House aud Bub Treasury, they were prepared for resistance, and could have been strengthened by a sudden reinforcement of regulars so as to resist any mob. Regulars and marines inside the walls and shell or two outside would have scattered an attacking party like chaff. * * * * Troops were quietly drawn from the west and south and massed at Washington, Fort McHenry and in our harbor, and you will remem ber that Gomplaiut was made in democratic newspapers about this matter aud about the gunboats at Washington and New York. Re publican newspapers laughed at it, of course, and most people did not know what to believe. If they had known how close the truth was their fears might have brought about the catastrophe. In that event the navy could have attended to the Atlantic cities, but a rising at the West would have been even reality than in the anticipation. * * ’* * Without violating confidence I may state that Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, and other military men were out spoken in their opinion that the army ought to be iised for repressive measures, though Sherman frankly expressed some doubt in respect to the democratic tendencies of the rank and file. Of course the navy was at the dis posal of Secretary Robeson, and it couldjbe relied on under all circum stances, At this most, critical time our lepublican politicians were divi ded in their counsels. It sounds queei to say it, but all our fears were centered in the North, and all our troubles were about the attitude of Northern politicians. In case a second rebellion began simultaneous ly at Washington and New York, it was feared that it would extend at once to every Northern city where the democrats had a majority. This might interfere with coming elections and presidential prospects you see. This was just what Senator Conk ling had specially feared, but he fi nally sided with Grant and Sherman You see it might have specially trans ferred the seat of the contest to this State. You may smile, but, as I have said, the fear was genuine, and there was reason for it. When the contest was narrowing down in the electoral commission to Louisiana, Senator Conkiing was more and more disturbed, and grew nervous oyer the idea of committing himself to a vote that might embroil himself and his State. You know it was said at the time that he intended to make a speech in the senate in favor of giving the electoral vote of Louisiana to Tilden. I never had any doubt on the point myself and told him so; while be admitted the necessity of prompt and vigorous ac tion at Now York in case any oppo sition was made here to the inaugu ration of Mr. Hayes. It is curious that, at the time J of. I was jn favor of extreme, radical measures in regard to the while Senator Conkiing seemed to favor conserva tive action. have Ghanged somewhat since then—or else the men have changed—for now the senator is an intensely radical re publican, while I indorse the policy of Mr. Hayes with my whole heart,” -£ —- Visifiug; the Sick, / Nothing requires more care, judg ment and circumspection, says' the ■ New York Tbffes, tfian the simple act of visiting tire sick room. A capital book could be written ou this subject warning people of the dangers of be ing brusque and stupid. There ought never to be more than one spare chair in a sick room, says an authority, and nurse who knows what she is abqnt woqld do well to place an ice pitcher on that chair, so that no one could sit In it. The most ab surd thing a person can do who calls on a sick man or woman is tq refer back to something which in their im agination, was the cause of this ill ness, “the cucumbers of last week or the soft crabs of the week before.” Religious admonitions, a delicate point, though they may save the soul sometimes, if carelessly administered certainly hurt the body. Mr. Finch ley, who has wrjtten a careful book, which he calls “Notes on the Care of the Sick,” says that he looks with disgust cm the person who speaks to the patient as if the illness was a dis tinct punishment for some grevious sin," and follows it up by Bending some hook, with a note containing these words: “I hope you will prayer fully study this little hook which I send yqu/’’ Doctors themselves of ten act in exact contradiction to tueir theories. “J must insist on the most perfect quiet in the bouse; have the children moved to a room below, and avoid all noise,” says Esculapius. Then the physician goes down stairs quietly enough, but in ifie hall for gets all about the patient for he clo ses the front door with a loud bang, and, instead of moving off softly with his horse and wagon, rattles his equipage all he can over the cobble stones. Doctors sometimes are asi much at fault as visitors in a sick room. ,*or> A Ruse Proposition, A Detroiter who has the reputation of being hard pay was waited on the other day by a man who began: “Mr. Blank, I hold your note for wanted to gee what you would do about it.” “My note? Ah! yes, yes, tins is my note. For value received I promise pay, and so forth. Have yoti been to the note-shavers with this ?” “I have, but none of them would have it ?” “Wouldn’t eh ? Aud you tried the banks?” “yes sir. They woi+ldn t look at it.” “Wouldn’t eh ? And I suppose you went to a justice to see about su ing it?” “I did, but he said a judgment wouldnff be worth a dollar.” “Did, eh? And now what propo sition do you wish to make ?” “This is your note for $75. Give me $5 and you can have it.” “Five dollars ! No, sir ! No sir ! I have no money to throw away, sir!’’ “But it is your own note.’ 1 “True sir, very true, but I’m not such an idiot as to throw away mon ey on worthless securities, no matter who signs them. I deal only in first class paper sir, and when that note has a negotiable value I will be pleas ed to discount it. Good day, sir— looks like settled wither.” Pleasant and good manners must be made up of petty sacrifices. Know Thyself. There is not a human frame upon eartu that is not by an inexorable iaw predisposed to some hereditarv disease, and the knowledge most to be sought for is, how to modify or altogether eradicate such tenden cies. The ignorance of the masses with regard to the scieuce of medicine and the phenomena of disease is truly wonderful. People of intelligence and education in all other sciences and subjects are literally in rfie dark regarding their own organization or physical requirements. To the family physician is left the entire matter as blindly and devout ly as the most unlettered boor does the immortality and future disposi tion of his soul to the priest. The physician may be incompetent or dishonest; one whose only aim is to reduce yourself or family to a state ql invalidism and make his occupa tion more lucrative, and you never the wiser. The doses you swallow may be the subtlest of poisons, each containing death or the seeds of dis ease, and yet you drift on in the in fatuation of ignorance. Strange that men who would re sent the slightest implication that they were not capable of thinking for themselves upon religious, political and other great scientific questions of the day, should persist in igno ranee of the greater one of physics, and continue to violate by grossest of ignorance, all the laws of health. 1 robably the root of the matter lies in the mistaken zeal of the facul ty, who, for the honor of medicine, use mystery and concealment with regard to human ills and the neces sary remedies, causes and antidotes; giving technical and befogging names for the simplest things, and which one lacks the courage to demand in the plainest of Saxon. But we dare predict the dawning of a brighter day, that with the ad vancement of the age and the grow ing intelligence, all classes will learn to know’ themselves and not trust blindly to others. Proper food, pure air, exercise and ablation, are the main essentials to perfect health, or to the restoration of a diseased body, and those who disregard or make an improper use of e ßher of these, must pay the pen aily by the pain which leads to decay aud death. Ron Ingersoll’s Tender Heart, Recently someone in conversation with the tender hearted Bob, said: “Mr. Ingersoll suppose you should lose one qf your daughters ?” He turned pale aud answered quickly: “Heaven forbid such a calamity!” "Gh, said the lady, “you don’t be lieve m Heaven; but if one of your clear children should die would there not he some comfort in the belief that you would see that child again ? Even the thought of death to one of his beloved household was so fraught with agony that he refused to contin ue the conversation. In a conversa tion which I had with him about two months ago; I asked him if he had ever read Hugh Miller, and especial ly his “Testimony of the Rocks,” He said he had, and spoke of Hugh Miller’s insanity sud suicide. I told him that I thought that Hugh’s ac count of the Noachian Deluge far more plausible than his lecture on the subject, I added that I never heard any of his lectures, but I had read tho reports of them To my great surprise I found that he wus not satisfied with his own theories, but that, h iving lost the anchor of faith, ho doubted everything in science as well as the Bible, He read every thing on every subject, and told me how weary arid unsatisfied he was. He said he was tired of books, tired of reading newspapers, and really seemed to bo ready to declare there was much weariness in knowledge. When we discussed a God, he said that if the Christian God punished evil and rewarded good, he could more readily accept Him, but that we constantly saw the reverse. He said much agaius’ lives of wickedness and death bed repentances, in which he could not believe. Csi!?ese Lovt-mukiitgo The Celestial Empire tells of a Chinaman who has lived among the Miaotz, and giv s a curious account of their love-njakiug. \ynen the pa rents of a lad and girl think that a match between their children will be suitable, the latter are directed to mount each a hillock distant a hun dred paces or so one from the other. Erom the summit the girl sings or chants, and, when she has finished, the lad responds in suitable langu age. The parents then ask the daughter if the youth’s aong recipro cates her sentiments. If she says “yes,” he is asked whether be willl take her or no. If he declines, both parties must begin all over again on some other occasion. Few men respect girls who rre ready to be wooed. The custom prevalent among a certain class of young ladies of askiug directly or in directly the attentions of young gen tlemen, is not an admirable custom- A lady said to me, not long since: “My son is much prejudiced against a young girl whom I admire, because she is constantly sending him notes, inviting him to be her escort here and there, and planning to have him with her.” A modest, dignified re serve, which is neither prudery nor affectation, should distinguish your manner to gentlemen. Too great familiarity and too evident pleasure in the society of young men are er rors into which no delicate and pure minded girl should fall, if she desires to retain the respect of the opposite sex. A servant girl may be a splendid cook and a thorough going Christian but at the same time she will never hesitate to split up an ironing board to kindle the fire with i a ease of emergency.
