Grandma Hayes. “ Thou shalt come to the grave in a full atte. J i ^ as a shock of corn cometh in his season.” - Job 0 : /o. Few hearts through age’s infirmity. Still beat as kindly on—. As warmly, and as honestly. As did the one that’s gone. Dear “Gi^^ndma Hayes.” I love^ her well, Solsimple. and so true! The words came o’er toe like a knell. That told me she was through! Throaghwith life’s weariness and pai&. Through with all earthly woe! Surely to be through thete, is gain / And sho was ripe to go. Her friendly coming, staff in hand. Her .smiling, pleasant face. As bent with years she used to stand, Or go from place to place ;— We all shall miss how sad it seems. To think* she’ll come no more I But sweet and peaceful are her dreams. “ Life’s fitful fever” o’er I G e e t b u d k . South Windsor, March 31st, 1865. Aunt Catlierlne’s Advice. From the Meriden Recorder. “Dear Harry,” murmured the young wife, twining her arm within her husband^s and leaning her cheek against it,—“stay •with me this evening, can’t you—won’t you? The time seems so long when you are away, come do.” “ It is quite necessary for me to be absent this evening, Kitty dear,” answered the husband, playfully,—"and Aunt Catherine is here too, so you will not be alone. Make yourself as happy as possible, and I will be home early.” A u n t Catherine smiled and looked down a t her knitting. '• When the street door closed behind Harry, she looked up at Kitty who was standing where her husband had left her, with her finger on her lip, and looking as though she was deserted. “You look sorrowful, my dear,” said aunt Catherine. At this, the tears fairly started from I^it-ty’s bright eyes, as she exclaimed, “it is just so all the time! He spends almost all his evenings away; I did not once think it would be so and the tears flowed afresh. ^ ^ “My dear child, you must be reasonable ; Harry is just commencing in business, and it is necessary for him to attend closely to it, and of course he must leave you alone much of the time; and you must'lnot* make him think you are unhappy all the time he is away from you, and think him cruel for leaving ^pu to yourself so much, when his business requires it. This is not the way to help him, Kitty. To be happy we must be busy; this is a lesson you must learn, aiid the sooner you learn it, the better it will be. , Now Kitty, instead of spending^ your evenings in running from the piano to the window, and then to me to express your impatience at your husl>and^8 delay, and shuff> ling over your music, and arrangiitg for the twentieth time the books upon your table,—just take some piece of work which is necessary to be done for yourself or husband and keep busy; or else, take some nse-ful and interesting book, and spend the evening in storing your mind with usetnl knowledge which Harry will love you the more for possessing—and I will assure you, my dear niece, you will be happier, and make your husband's hwora happier, and be more what a wife shduld be,—a helpmeet for her hiksband.^' Aunt Catherine’s words were in season and had the desired effect. Instead of being displeased, Kitty’s eye brightened, as A new idea seemed to enter her mind. ** i know what Pll do. H&rry asked me to mend his ooat several days agOi hut I did not feel like it and so laid it »way. I al- I ways disliked mending, hut I am not going to any more. I’U set right about it.** So saying she tripped away in search of the disabled garment, and the necessary materials for mending, and in a few moments she was seated on a stool at aunt Catherine’s feet, wijth her rosy face bent industriously over her work. One, two hours glided away, and the dreaded work was done, and nicely done, too. “Why aunt! where has ihe e^toing flown!” exclaimed Kitty as she rose from her work. “ Here it is almost time for Harry to come; it has hardly seemed an hour. I ’ll stand here by the window and watch for him ; he must be here soon. “ Np,”—said aunt Catherine-^** sit down here and read to me from this new book Harry bought for you yesterday ; he says it is a real literary treat.*’ Kitty complied, and for the next half hour she was completely absorbed in her new book. At the end of that time her husband’s step sounded in the hall below, and she laid aside her book exclaiming,— “ There’s Harry ! and how delightfully the evening has passed! it has glided away so quickly and so pleasantly; I must thank you for this, dear au n t! Here’s Harry, I must tell him what a good girl I ’ve been.” r I.OST. A LEGEND OF VERMONl. About ninety years ago, as I suppose, the events of my story oceured. It was in Vermont, within the limits of.either the township of Rockingham or of Springfield, it is impossible now to say which, that the log cabin whic^was the home of the heroine stood, surrounded by forest. The real names of the actors in this tragedy of* the woods passed <int of th e legend, and I, there* fore, substitute the first names which come to mind. “I have finished my spinning, Robert, and shall carry the yarn home to-day. I think I will spend the day with Mrs. Green, and I wish you would come and meet me and t>W«g baby hdme,” said the. youiig wife taking the linen yarn in her apron and the baby on her arm. “Very well,” replied the husband, giving the crowing child a kiss, as he started off with his hoe over his shoulder for the wheat field. He was hoeing in wheat that day.— His lot had been burnt over and s jwed with wheat, but the huge stumps of the old trees, the logs lying about and the thick underground roots in the new land prevented the use of the plough. All day he worked busily in the fresh ^ soil, with the strange wood-sounds about him, eating his lunch at noon, from his little basket; until the lengthening shadows of the forest around his small clearing betokened the approach of sunset. Then he started off to meet his wife. A mile or two away in the forest, his neighbor. Green, had made his “clearing.” He went on without meeting the wife and baby, until he reached his neighbor’s door. “Why,” said Mrs. Green, in answer to his inquiries, “didn’t you meet her ? She hasn’t been gone long, only a few minutes.” “Can she have missed the marked trees ?” asked Robert Harris, aghast. ' “Don’t be alarmed, neighbor,” said Mr. Green, “I will go back with you.” The two men went together through the forest, which every moment grew darker and drearierl Not so dark but they could see the white gash cut on the side of every prominent tree, which mark, along the dense woods, was the only indication of highway. They called Mrs. Harris’s name loudly at intervals, but there came no reply. They kept saying to each other, “We may find her at home,” but they were heavy at heart. The log-house was reached, but home it was no longer to Mr.: Harris. The mother and baby were not there. The cow lowed t« be milked, and the pigs, whidi ran in the woods and came home at mght, clamored for their usual feeding, but the men took no notice of them* Back again thiough woods, with a lantern, calling and hallooing. Then they went on to the next clearing, and the next. “A woman is lost What telegram in these exciting days of battle ever fell more thrillingly on human nerves than these words going from mouth to mouth among the home-nests of the new country! With iron muscles ^nd determined wills the warm-hearted settlers started out. “We will scour the woods, we will find them; never fear.” According to a custom they hid at such times, they blew dinner horns, built fires, and shouted until they were hoarse. No tidings of the lost ones on that night. All the next day they searched, and day after day as long as possible. Fires were left smouldering among the trees, men who knew the woods kept resolutely to the search, but the budding April forest held its secret. When Mrs. Harris started with her baby in her arms, from Mrs. Green’s, expecting momently ta meet her husband, she wjent on carelcssly, her attention bein^ directed in part to her child, until, suddraly lookibgup, she discovered no white scars of the axe on any tree in sight. But she fancied she had only just^stepped out of the track and might in a moment regain it. A vain fancy.— Nothing familiar met her eyep. The night came on. The little birds went to rest, the owls laughed dolefully. She was alone with her infant in the great sea of forest where never a woodman’s axe had echoed. She wa's lost. She sat down, faint and tired, and woman-like began to cry. Hark! That was certainly a human shout. She rose, and holding her sleeping child firmly, ran, as fast as the tangled undergrowth and fallen trees across her path would permit her, towards l^e welcome Voice. She shoutr ed back but her small voice won Id never be heard; she only waked the little child and must now stop and hush it. Then she started on again. Hark! the sound of a 'horn, but in entirely another direction. Turning her course she ran, breathless, towards it. And now she thought she heard it again, farther off. Many hoars of the night were spent in rushing, with hysteric sobs and palpitating heart, towards the voices of her friends; so near that she could'hear them, but so far away that no effort of frenzied strength could enable her to reach their protecting presence. What a night it waS! Towards morning she slept, leaning against a tree with the baby on her bosom. But she started nervously in her dreams and at the first bird-song woke to full consciousness. With the daybreak came a renewal of her courage. She would not weakly give up to die. Her friends would certainly find her to-day, or she would find them. She saw near her some of the last year’s berries and tough leaves of wintergreen. And here were acorns. A pooy breakfast, but"” she ate whatever she could find, for the sake of the child more than for her own. This day also she ran wildly through the tangle of dead brakes, *and briers growing rank from the decay of centuries, over gullies and jagged rocks, past rude branches that caught at her dress and rent it, till she came to the dying embers of a fire. Here she lingered long. Her friends had been here; perhaps Robert kindled this fire with his own hands, and for her. Hark again I « The search has commenced this morning._ Echoing through the woods coines the prolonged shriek of a dinner horn. She calls with all the desperation of one drowning; she rushes forward. But the ground rough, and alas! how heavy the baby growsl She is giddy with loss of sleep and want of food. The baby moans and will not be comforted. In this- way pass the day and' another dreadful night. She finds another fire, she stays by it and keeps it btiming through the night, for she is afraid ofwoWes. Another morning and she is not hopeful.— 0 , will not Heaven pity herf Have tho sweet April skies beoome brass, to shut out her cries for help ? Has God forgotten to be gracious? Th« little one grows weak-
