son Charles who was about half young exterior the Litter was a favorite among tne young Indies in the neighborhood end considered in common parlance quite a catch As yet his affections had never been seriously entangled and might have remained so had it not been for the sudden one morning Florence Benson riding by on augh we shall have Squire Markham did not consider lat it might make a little difference the bride expectant He red a capital joke on his son and looked o further He accordingly drew his materials towards him and in- the following epistle DEAREST FLORENCE I find the iy fixed for our elopement on some ac counts objectionable and would like with your permission to substitute morrow evening If I hear nothing from you I shall infer that you assent to this arrangement I shall have a riage in readiness under the old oak tree at eight o'clock You can walk there without cion and as there will be no moon we shall be able to carry out our plans without fear of discovery I am happy to say that the Governor suspect in the least that a daughter-in-law is in store for him Won't he be Your devoted CHARLES said Squire Markham laughing heartily that bad about humbugging me crumpled up the letter and thrust it into her pocket Florence and Charles did not meet during the succeeding day chiefly in pursuance of the plan they had agreed upon in order to avoid suspicion Squire Markham acted in an exceed ingly strange manner to his son's think mg Occasionally he would burst int a Heavy laugh which he would or to repress and pace up and down th room as if to walk off some of his super abundant hilarity What's in the though Charles to herself It can't be The getting crazy Somethings the matter beyond a doubt But wha it really had not the faintest con- jecture At the hour specified the Squire had his carriage drawn up at the appointed rendezvous He began to peer a female form well muffled up made its appearance Thanking her in low whisper lest it might bo suspected the wrong person he helped her into the carnage and drove off Their tion was the house of the Justice of the Peace residing at the distance of some eight miles During tho first part of the journey was said Both parties were desirous of concealing their At length Squire Markham ing that after all he could not marry the lady without her consent and that the discovery must be made before the marriage decided to reveal himself and then urge his own suit as well as he might My dear Miss he How THE DEVIL is to good to be lost We clip it from aa the door open respectfully call the at- tention to it of certain persona who feel disposed to spread in the newspaper A young gentleman who ardently sired wealth was visited by his Satanic who tempted him to promise his soul for eternity if he could be plied on this all he could use The bargain was com- devil was to supply tho money at last to have the soul unless the young man could spend more money than the devil could furnish lears passed man married was extravagant in his living built aces speculated and gave away fortunes and yet his coffers were always full He turned politician and bribed bis way to power and farno without ing gold He became a fil- fitted out ships and armies his banker honored all his drafts He went to St Paul to livo and paid the usual rates of interest for all the money he could borrow but though the devil made wry faces when he came to pay the bills yet they were all paid One expedient after another evil counted the time only two years hat he must wait for the soul and mocked the efforts of the despairing man One more trial was resolved man started a The devil growled at the bills at tho end of first quarter was savage in six months melancholy in nine and was dead at the end of the year So tho newspaper broke down and tho soul saved very lev couldn't self have done it better So saying he sealed it up and sent it over by a little Irish boy in his ment having first marked the corner private in Be careful Mike to give it to Miss Benson and don't let any one else see was the parting Mrs in her quiet parlor casting her eyes over a late ber of Harper's Magazine Florence being absent on a shopping excursion she was left alone The ringing of the brought her to the door With some surprise she that the caller was ued in his natural voice shrieked tho lady thought it was Charles And said Squire Markham recognizing Mrs Benson's voice with astonishment thought it was Florence Was it you sir who was arranging to elope with my ing No but I ma'am who was my son conclude it was you meaning to elope with Indeed Squire Markham you are wrong the affair coming accidentally to my knowledge I concluded to take her place secretly in order to frustrate her plans Egad the very idea I had said the Squire laughing but the fact is we're both of most confoundedly sold and the mischief of it is I left a letter for Charles letting know it so undoubtedly ho will take during our absence and plume himself the rascal on the way in which I was taken in I confess that I left a note for Markham's boy of all hack It struck him at once that she was remarkably graceful and really quite pretty Thereupon he cultivated her acquaintance with increased assiduity and after a while asked the fatal tion Florence answered in the affirmative nnd instead of referring him dutifully to her mother hinted being a tic young lady how charming it would be to steal away to the next town and married without anybody being the I wiser Charles caught at this hint which chimed with his own ment and resolved to adopt it In order that it might be carried out with perfect success it was resolved to seem indifferent to each other until tho day fixed in order to ward off any which might be aroused So well were all these arrangements carried out that Mrs Benson had not a j of what was going on Not so with Squire Markham He had obtained a- clue to the affair in some 1 manner so that he had not only ered the fact of the elopement but even the very day on which it was to occur Sly dog that thought he to himself as he sat before the fire in his dressing gown and smoking cnp leisurely puffing away at a choice vana But I don't wonder at it he only takes after me Still I owe him something for keeping it so secretly from me It would be a joke if I were a little younger to cut him out and j marry her in spite of him i is Markham who was one of those jovial widowers who takes life as Alld assortment of goods comes mused more and more on this R C Prescott Oct 1856 out by chance as it were till he really began to think it worth something Mike Squire work Please holding out a missive here's a letther for Miss Benson an it's very that no- body else shouldn't see it The air of mystery conveyed in this characteristic address aroused Mrs Benson's curiosity especially when she observed that it addressed to her daughter and not to herself as she at first supposed She returned to the parlor not to read Harper's Magazine that had lost its attractions What in the world can it she thought that they should be so secret about it Can Florence be carrying i clandestine correspondence It be something that I to know Stimulated by her feminine curiosity Mrs B speedily concluded that she would bo false to the responsibilities of on a ma ence to the same will laugh at me what an How she tery a parent if she did not unravel the said she I will open it and if it shouldn't be anything lar I can easily reseal it and Florence will still be none the wiser This she accordingly did What was her astonishment when the plan of ment was discovered to her Here's pretty she ex- claimed as soon as she could recover breath So Florence was going to run away get married to that Chas Markham without as much as hinting a word to me She leaned her head upon her hand and began to consider She was rally led to think of her marriage with the late Mr Benson and the happiness of her wedded life and she could not help heaving a sigh at the recollection Am I always to remain thus she thought I've half a mind not to show this letter to Florence but to run away with Charles to-morrow night on my own account It's odd if I can't persuade him that the mother is as good as the and she I'll tell you said the Squire after a moment's pause we can carry out our plans after all Wo each came out with tho attention of getting married Why not marry each other and then you know we can make them believe we had it in view all along and only intended to frighten them Mrs Benson assented with a little urging and in the course of an hour the twain were made one turned but found as they had anticipated that Florence and Charles on discovering their selves stepped off in a different tion with a similar intent They made their appearance the next morning prepared to laugh heartily at tho frustrated plans of their learned with no little astonishment that they had struck up a bargain for selves Squire Markbam and his new wife had the address to convince them that it was all a premeditated plan and to this day pair are ignorant of the plot and counterplot which led THE ADVANTAGES OF LADIES is better for you to pass ah evening once or twice a week in a lady's drawing room even though tho sation is rather slow and you know the girls songs all by heart than in a club tavern or in the pit of a theatre AH amusements of youths to which women are not admitted rely on it are rious in their nature All men avoid female society have dull tions and are stupid or have stupid and gross tastes and revolt against what is pure Your club swaggerers who are sucking the butts of billiard cues all night call female society Beauty has no charms for blind men music does not please a poor beast does not know one tune from another and as a true hardly ever tired of water anchovy and brown bread and butter I protest I can sit all night talking to a well regulated kindly an about her coming out or her

Our tion makes us the most eminently selfish men in tho world Wo fight for selves for ourselves we light our pipes and say we won't go out we prefer ourselves and and the greatest comes to a man from woman's society is that he has to think of somebody besides himself to whom he is bound to be constantly attentive and to this double union of holds the two n and de- faulting epoch it is cheering to
