N. H., was the scene of unusual festiMtirs. The-most extensive prepara- ti'ins had been marie for ttie romfoit and p'ensure ot some thirty or forty iriviied-jj-uests, for the judee was an o d- !• shioned host and liked tn entertain Minin'uously. R >dney, the judge's sen, »fi« liomP frcm roKege for a week, and .had\ brought with him a few friends whose homes were too far away to enable thrm to goand leturn in the short ^w^fe-aUotted k>r a-^aeatiea. Mrs Cleveland was a delicate little My sevrTnl years- ytrmjger than hpr tmshand, who dclightt-d to plca\sp him :iy ke< ping open house, seconding his i'es'ires and his whims with astonishing p-it ience.tor Judge Cleveland was known iu be something of an autocraC, and ban ro«n heard to say that his will was a:wiy9 law in his own house. The genu man's will was also law on the 1 biriwh and while very generous to the poor and surferins, was sure to give evil- i doers the severest penalties the statutes those I afforded. Judge Cleveland's father had always had a sideboard in his house, and the judge insisted on perpetuating the Custom, although his wife by p r- s.uasion, and even tears, had constantly used her influence against it. Judge Cleveland believed in wine at dinner, $id a drink of brandy whenevfr he felt Uke it. \ A man with a miiid,\ he was accustomed, t o say. '.'knew when to I freely around the table. | never know how cruel and wieke.i i't it seeins to me t o put temptation befof!

Oti! : Rodney, for your mother's sake be-care- j ful.\ At this moment dinner was an- nounced, and Rodney led his mother to : her seat, and then leaning «v?f her said • softly: *' I wouldn't do anything to hurt I you for aXl the world, mother. Trust j me. tor„Im a Cleveland, you know.\ i This last was a quotation frcm his j father's oft* repeated words, and Mrs. ; Cleveland smiled a faint little smi-ie a t j her son's exact reproduction of the (judge's manner. j \There is' nothing sure but the un- foreseen,\ says an old French proverb, [ and it certainly seemed t r e in tiiis ease. | Dinner passed off in excellent st-y,c, 1 Rodney's behavior being as usual en- tirely satisfactory. As tlie young man never touched anything from the side- i board, Mrs. Cleveland's fears' were quite : lulled to rist. One ot Rodney's friends ' seemed a little flushed alter dinner, but ! after ah Rodney's friend wasn't Rodney, ' although Mrs Cleveland would have 'shielded from temptation every young man at her table with the same mo' hen> regard whisti she threw aiwut her o«n son. There were old-fashioned games for tlie etjiUirea in ttiealT.ernooh,.ivnda seven o'clock tea. After tea Rodney and his friends went out for a stroll, and when at eleven oVIocu the Thanksgiving party broke up. the ytirmg. .roeiL ,liad„not .re'-, turned.\ Mrs. 'Cleveland had been grow- ing iteadily anxious, and when twelve came without any signs of the truants, she was sure that the worst had hap pened. If she rou.ld only inrinco tlie judge to go t o bed, then there might be a possibility that the belated party could com? in and retire without being seen; for fch« judge wasagood sleeper, usually dropped off a s soon as his head touched- the piiiowr Bat^id! the.)udge had matle up his mind, and nothing that'his wife coutd say was* dt the slightest avail. At last he exclaimed, irritably: \ (Jo to bed if you want to and let me aione. I teil you I am going, to sit up and rind out what has.Rpptihoseboysoutso late.

At thia time MM Cleveland sent her son nil the money she could •rai«e without her husband's knowledge and now another Thanksgiving day had rolled round without any more hews of him. Judge Cleveland kept open house as usual, and his wife sat at the head of his table and entertained his guests; but they all knew tha*: her heart was not i n the festivities, and when t ie wine sparkled in the glnsse?, and talk flowed the service was inn.
