DEALEB IN W A G O H S lC iB E U G E S Of A21 KJads. “ Too Low, and l e t Too High 1’’ I, He came in velvet and in gold; He wooed her with a careless grace; A confidence too rashly bold Breathed in his lan^age and his face. While she—a simple maid—replied: “ No more of love ’twixt thee and me I These tricks of passion I deride, Nor trust thy boasted verity. Thy suit, with artful smile and sigh, Resign, resign: No mate am I for thee or thine, Being too low, and yet too high !’* n . His Bphrit changed; his heart grew warm With genuine passion; mern by mom More perfect seemed the virgin charm That crowned her ’mid tbe ripening com. And now he wooed with fervent mien, With soul intense, and words of fire, But reverence-fraught, as if a queen Were hearkening to his heart’s desire. She brightly blushed, she gently sighed, Yet still the village maid replied (Though in bad Mcenta, wearily) : “ Thy suit resign, Resign, resign! Lord Hugh, I never can fee thiBe: Too low am I, and yet too high !” JOHN and I . “ Oome, John,” said I, cheerfully, “ it really,is time to g o ; if you stay any longer' 1 shall be afraid to oome down and look the door after you.” My visitor rose—a proceemng that always reminded me of the genius emerging from the copper vessel, as he measured six feet ^ re e—and stood looking reproachfully down upon me. ‘‘ Tou are in a great hurry to get rid of me,” he replied. Now I didn’t agree with him^ for he had made his udual call, of two hours and a half ; having, in country phrase, taken to “ sittiag up ” with me so literally that I was frequently at my wit’s end to suppress the yawn that I knew would bring a troop rushing after it. He was a fine, manly-looking fellow, this John Cranford, old for his age— which was the rather boyish period pf twenty-two—and every way wOrth^ of being loved. But I didn t love him. I was seven years his sehior; and when, instead of letting the worm pf concealment prey on his damask cheek, he ventured to tell his love for my mature self, I remorselessly seized an English Prayer-book, and pointed atemly to the clause, " A man may not marry his grandmother.” That was three years aRO ; and I added, encouragingly, “ Besides, John, you are a child, and don’t know your own mind.” “ I f a man of nineteen doesn’t know his own mind,” remonstrated my lover, “ I would like to know who should. But I will wait for you seven years, if you say so—^fourteen, as Jacob did for Rachel.” “ You forget,” I replied, laughing at his way of mending matters, “ that a woman does not, like wine, improve with age. But seriously, John, this is absurd ; you are a niee boy, and I like you—but my feelings to ward, yon are more like those of a mother than a wife*” The boy's eyes flashed indignantly; and before I could divine his intention he had lifted me from the spot where I stood, and carried me, infant fashion, to the sofa at the other end of the room. “ I oould almost find it in toy heart to shake you!” he muttered, as he set me down with emphasis. This was rather like the courtship of William of Normandy, and matters promised to be quite exciting. “ Don’t do that again,” said I, with dignity, when I had recovered my breath. “ Will you marry me?” asked John, somewhat threateningly. “ Not just at present,” I replied. “ The great, handsome fellow,” I thought, as he paced the floor restlessly, “ why couldn’t he fall in love with some* pirl of fifteen, instead of setting his affections on an old maid like me ? I don’t want tbe boy on my hands, and I won’t have him!” “ As to your being twenty-six,” pursued John, in answer to my thoughts, “ you say it’s down in the family Bi\)le, and 1 suppose it must be s o ; but no one would believe i t ; and I don’t care if you’re forty. You look like a girl of sixteen, and you are the only woman I shall ever love.” Oh, John, John! at least five millions of *men have said that same thing before in every known language. Nevertheless, when you fairly break down and cry, 1 relent—for I am disgracefully soft-hearted-and weakly promise then and there that I will either keep my own name or take yours. For love is a very dog in the manger, and Johu looked radiant at this concession. I t was a comfort to know that if he could not gather the flower himself, no one else would. A sort of family shipwreck had wafted •Toha to my threshold Oar own household was sadly broken up, and I found mysell comparatively jo u n g in years, with a half-invalid father, a large house and very little money. What more natural than to take boarders? And-among tbe first were Mr. Cranford, and his son, and sister, who had just been wrecked themselves by the death of the wife and mother in a foreign land—one of those sudden, unexpected deaths that leave the survivors in ft dazed condition, because it is so difficult to imagine the gay worldling who has been called hence in another state of being. Mr. Cranford was one of my admirations from the first. Tall, pale, with dark hair and eyes, he reminded me ol Dante, only that he was liandsome ; and he had such a general air of knowing everything worth knowing (without the least pedantry, however), that I was quite afraid of him. He was evidently wrapped up in John, and patient with his sister- which was asking quite enough of Christian charity under the sun, for Mrs. Shellgrove was an unmitigated nuisance. Such a talker! babbling of her awn and her brother’s affairs with an equal indiscretion, and treating the latter as though he were an incapable infant. They staid with us three yeans, and during that time I was fairly pers«eted about John. Mrs. S h e ll^ v o vrofa) me a letter on the subject, in which she informed me that the whole family were ready to receive me with open arms—» prospect that I did not find at all alluring. They seemed to have set their hearts upon me as a person peculiary fitted to train John in the way he shoud go. Every thing, I was told, depended on his getting the right kind of wife. A special interview with Mr. Cranford, at his particular request, touched me considerably. “ I hope,” said ho, “ that yon will not refuse my boy. Miss Edna. He has set his heart so fully upon you, and you are every thing that I could desire in a daughter. I warrt some one to pet. I feel sadly lonely at times, and I am sure that you would just fill the vacant niche. ” I drew my hand away from his caress, and almost felt like hating John Cranford. Life with him would one of ease and luxury; but I decided I would rather keep boarders. Not long after this the Cranfords concluded to go to housekeeping, and Mrs. Shellgrove was in heif glory. She always came to luncheon now in her bonnet, and gave us minute details of all that had been done and talked of about the house in the last twenty-four hours. “ I t is really magnificent,” said she, lengthening each syllable. “ Brother has such perfect taste ; and he is actually furnishing the library. Miss Edna, after your suggestion. You see, we look upon you quite as one of the family.” “ That is very good of you,” I re^ plied, shortly ; “ but I certainly have no expectation of ever belonging to i t ” Mrs. Sliellgrove laughed as though I had perpetrated an excellent joke. “ Young ladies always deny these things, of course; but John tells a different story.” I rattled the cups and saucers angrily ; and my thoughts floated off not to John, but to John’s ftUher, sitting lonely in the library furnished after my suggestion. Wasn’t it, after all my duty to marry the family generally ? The house was finished and moved into, and John spent his evenings with me. I used to get dreadfully tired of him. He was really too devoted to be at all interesting, and I had reached that state of feeling that, if summarily ordered to take my choice between him and the gallows, I would have prepared myself for hanging with a sort of cheerful alacrity. I locked the door upon John on the ___ •____ ____________Al___— T 1_____;i view ended in a f a r more satisfactory manner than either of us had anUcx- ^^So^i ke»t my promise to John, after all, and as Miss Rose kept here, he is now a steady married man, and a very agreeable son-in-law. Farming In Italy. Anna Brewster, writing from Home to the Philadelphia Bulletin, says : “A friend described to me the other evening the type of a veritable Mercante di Campngna delV Agro Romano, or a Campagna merchant, as th^y call these remarkable farmers. He took for this t pe a certain Signor MazzolenL _ This gentleman works three farms which lie on the border of the sea between Auc-tium and Terracina. These farms contain about 50,000 acres of land. Oa this vast space are pastured 14,000 sheep and lambs, 3.U00 oxen and cows, 700 horses and mules. Signor Ma*- zoleni has 9,000 acres sown with wheat, oats, com, and beans. Yearly he gath- ©rs in from his fields 52,000 sacks of g rain; he sell 45,000 pounds of wool, 190.000 pounds of cheese, and furnishes to the prevision or me«t markets 5,000 sheep and lambs, 1,500 calves and 2,- 000 fatted beef. This immense under-takincr brinffs him in a rental of from 450.000 to 500,000 francs. Now comes the most singular part of this veritable history. Twenty years ago Signor Mazzoleni was nothing but a petty tailor. For fifteen centuries these gigantic farming undertakings have existed on the Campagna of ]^me, or Argo-Romuno. About 113 families have owned the whele tract, and their agenta have worked the best lands. The proprietors and their agents never live on these farms. The only buildings the casale, a very modest house, which is sometimes the ruins of an ancient Middle Age fortification, where the agent or master lodges at need ; some very modest out-buildings for servants, smul stables and granary, or bams. There are also some straw huts for the workmen and laborers. The cattle of all kinds live in the open air. Some of tbe very largest farms, such as the farms of the Campo Morto or Conca, have not as many buildings on them as as we would see on one of the smallest of our farms. The met canti di camr pagna are not people of the country, but oi the c ity ; they are really agricultural merchants. Their busines consists in establishing a vast fabric of natural products J. nainrai prouaubH uoun »a ^ven p. iece of evening in question, when I had finally ; they must unceasingly watch so got rid of him, with these feelings in to make the produce proportionate full force; and I meditated while undressing on some desperate move that should bring matters to a crisis. Bat tbe boy had b e c o m e at last. He too had reflected in the watches of the n ig h t; and next day I received quite a dignifled letter from him, telling me that business called him from the city for two or three weeks, and that possibly on his return I might appjreci-ate his devotion better. I felt inexpressibly relieved. I t appeared to me the most sensible move that John had made in the whole course of our m-quaintance, and I began to breathe with more freedom. Time flew, however, and the three weeks lengthened to six without John’s return. He wrote to me, but his letteis became somewhat constrained; and I scarcely knew what to make of him. If he would only give me up, I thought; but I felt sure that he would hold me to that weak promise of mine, that I should either become Edna Cranford or lemain Edna Carrington. “ Mr. Cranford” was announced ’one evening, and I entered the parlor fully prepared for an overdone of John, but found myself confronted by his father. He looked very grave; and instantly I imagined all sorts of things, and reproached myself for my coldness. “ John is well ?” I gasped, finally. “ Quite well,” was the reply, in such kind tones that I felt sure there was something wrong. What it was I cared not, but poured forth my feelings to my astonished visitor. “ He must net come here again !” I exclaimed. “ I do not wish to see him. Tell him so, Mr. Cranford I tell that I had rather remain Edna Carrington, as he made me promise, thou to become Edna Cranford.” “ And he made you promise this ?” was the reply. “ The selfish fellow ! But, Edna what am I to do without the little girl I have been expecting ? I am very lonely—so lonely that I do not see how I can give her up.” I glanced at him, and the rcwm seemed swimming around-reyerythinjj was dreadfully unreal. I tried to sit down, and was carried tenderly to the sofa. “ Shall it bo Edna Carrington or Edna Cranford ?” he whispered. “ You need not break your promise to John.” “ Edna Cranford,” I replied, feeling that I had left the world entirely, and was in another sphere ol existence. If the thought crossed my mind that Mr. Cranford had rather cheerfully supplanted his son, the proceeding was f ^ y justified during the visit which I soon received from that young gentla-man. I tried to make it plain to him that I did him no wrong, as I had never professed to love him, though not at all sure that I wouldn’t receive the shaking threatened on a previous occasion, and I endeavored to be as tender m possible, for I really felt sorry for him. To my great surprise, John laughed. “ Well, this is jolly !” he exclaimed. “ And I ’m not a villain, after all. What do you think of her, Edna ?” ^ He produced an ivorytype in a rich velvet case—a pretty, little, blue-eyed simpleton; she looked like CBtat seven-teen. “ Rose,” he continued—“ Rose Darl-ling : the name suits her, doesn’t it ? She was staying at my uncle’s in Maryland— that’s where I ve been visiting, yon know—and she’s such a dear little confiding thing that a fellow couldn’t help falling in love with her. And she thinks no end of me, you see-says she’s quite afraid of me, and all that.” John knew that I wasn’t a bit afraid of him ; but I felt an elderly sister sort of interest in his happiness, and never liked him so well as at that moment. And this was the dread Inl news that his father had oome to break to me, when his narrative was nipped in the bud by my revelations, and the inter-to the demand ; watch _ sales, and be ready to profit by the raise, and lose as litflA iiJt of ‘ ihronghout the Mediterranean. Thtw Hhe mercante di campagna^ you see, must be at once agriculturist, dealer and banker, and ship owner also ; directing at one and the same time the ra sin*r of cattle, the culture of land, thousands of laborers^; small maritime expeditions, and his Roman country house. I t is a perilous* business, but has built many a family in the Papal States to title as well as f o r t u n e . ’ ] _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ . Colt Breaking. In Kentucky we saw a two-year old colt broke—dead broke—^in a half-hour, so that ke worked as amiably as a trained horse. The colt had never been bridled. He was attached to a carriole called a “ break-dray,” and pat through istonishingly quick. Tha break-dray is nothing more than a strong, broad-tread dray, with l >ng shafts, the tail omitted, and a spring seat between the wheels. The harness was strong, and so arranged oyeJr the hips as to prevent the possibility of high kicking, and the colt was hitched so far from the dray th at his heels could not possibly reach the driver. The process of hitohing was, of co^irse, very delicate, as a colt is excessively ticklish, and is apt to let his heels fly awkwardly. All b e i n g ready, one man held the colt and another took the seat and reins. The colt was then let go to plunge as he pleased. The breiik-dray —which was so broad that upsetting seemed out of the question—was pushed upon the colt, and the colt pushed sideways until he started. A few plunges settled him. He went as he phased, up hill, down hill, and so on, until ho finally strack a sober trot, and was thoroughly broke. The confused and bewilde.ed look of th a tc c lt was pitifully amusing. Mr. Bob Strader was giving directions, and upon one of the breakers raising his hand to slap the colt to urge him, Mr. Strader said : “ Don’t do that. Never strike a colt when you are breaking him. Push him sideways, or any way. Let him ^ just where he will, and how he Let him fall down if he will, but don t strike him.” When the colt was taken out of the shafts he was as wet m if he had been in water, and a child <»nld have handled him. He had not been struck a blow. The dray, we believe, was invented by Mr. Strader. Hydrophobia. A French physician, Mr. Buisson, of Lyons, claims to have prevented or cured hydrophobia in every one of more than eighty oases which cfcne to his notice. His preventive was a R u s s ia bath, at 134 and 144 degrees Fehrenheit, for seven days in succession, before the disease declared itself. After the symptoms had developed, a_ single bath was sufficient. Buisson discovered the remedy by accident, w h ^ endeavoring to suffocate himself in heated vapor, to escape the horrors of phobia, contracted in the pursuit of his profession. When his bath had reached an extreme high temperature, all the dread symptoms disappeared as if by magic, never to retum. So simple a remedy can do no harm, unless the patient has organic disease of the heart, and it certainly is worthy of tn a l here. The Huckstkb.—“ I s that an esculent?*’ inquired Professor Hotchkiss, the other day, of a huckster who displayed in the market a mammoth and very odd-looking vegetable. The man’s face assumed a acomful smile, and after he had studied the professor’s form contemptuously for a moment, he answered. “ Esculent! thunder and lightning, n o ! that’s a bloe-noM potato.’*
