His hair was white as snow, but his roimd visage was ruddy still, and his black, bead-like eyes glittered as -y^ith the fire of youth - "Captain Dulnare will you never g row old," Haid his friends, which saying interpreted, meant that he would be hale and hearty to the last, wlien death would take him suddeniy, with no worrying prelude of lengthened helj^ less decline, as might reasonably be expected, as he had already passed his allotted term of three score years and ten. The beautiful girl at his side was knoWn as his daughter and prospective lieiress. Virginia Dulnare was shapely iii figure, and not too tail. Her f'îàtures were exquisite, her lips scarlet, her eyes large and brown, ana her silky hair like a fleece of gold. Just now the young and flushed face was Hidden on the old man's knee. " Do you really love the poor fellow whom they call Hugh GirardP" asked Captain Dulnare, in afond, disappointed whisper. " Very dearly, pafpq.?' was the smothered reply. . ,, - ^ With both his white withered hands he lifted the dainty, blushing lace, and looked steadfastly into the big, wistful, brown-eyes. " Vir^ie," he'said, in those firm, stern tones that no man ever dared to dis-ohey, " it is my wish and will that you marry Sex tus Weliion. You think you love another, but at your age love is but a lightning flash of passion and fancy. I know best what will make you happy. Therefore I have chosen your husband for you. " I distrust and despise Sextus Wel-don," returned the girl, passionately, springing to her feet. It is your money, not me, he cares for." A strange look wavered over the round, ruddy visage of the old gentleman. " Another romantic hallucination, my child," he said. "-The yoimg man idolizes you. Do you think your old father does not know the signs of love? And, my pretty lamb, Sextus is very rich, and I would like to have you the wife of a worthy man when I am gone." " /'I had ratherl)e poor and contented, papa," sobbed his child. Then the old man's eyes grew stormy with the anger she feared. " You ungrateful girl! how ungrateful you will never know till I am dead. Have I not been kind to you? Have I ever askod you to do anything' that was Then came the reading of the dead man's will, and the settlement of his financial affairs. And with these gross matters of business and lucre, there came to the pule^ stricken Virginia, a terriWe disclosure. Captain Dulnare*s large liabilities, secured by heavy mortgages, and his floating debts, swallowed up everything. The heiress in prospective was utterly penniless. But that wna the smallest sorrow. For by papers ot proof left, Virginia was declared to be a child of adoption. .Sfag-had-bcea left when-ft-baby bh the-rich man's doorstep, and he had reared her as his own. And after three weeks of grievous embarrassment, Virginia was thrust out into the world with no tippj except whatshehad fixed uponSextus Weldon. He only came once, attd his tones were altered and stlpercilious. No matter wh^t he said. But Virginia's sweet face flushed, and she tore the betrothal ring from her shaking hand and gave it back to one who was not loth to receive it. Then she went into the world to win her bread—not an easy task for one luxuriou8ly^,reared. She thought she could do dressmaking nicely; but to every store and shop to which she applied she was greeted with the oneanswen " Work is rather slack just now, and of course, what we have to giveis given to the employees who hav6 been with us longest." It was'from the doors'lif one of these; palatial places that she tottered one day, weak from hunger, and on the marble steps sank down in a deathly swoon. A lady in velvet and silk with plumes of gray sweeping over her silvery hair, had just ascended ffbrn her coupe. She saw the prostratefol-m, and looking into the drawn, white face, started. "Put this child into the coupe and drive home^" she said, abruptly, to the liveried ."groom. The man obeyed, thinking that of all the mad freaks of his honored mistress, this was the maddest. So, when Virginia awoke from her loagstill «woon, she found herself in a quaint, old-iasltioned chamber, and not alone. "Where am I, and who are you?" she asked, faintly, of the stately woman who bent-over the couch. "You are with one who will never forsake you, my child^ even if you had known sin and shame before I found you^" said the sweet-faced woman, holding close the quivering hands. . "I have never sinned» bjat I have been shamed to the soul by the frowns of poverty," ¡answered Virginia, whila the hectic gi ctw hotter on her cheeks. "Be calm, dear, and listen to what I have to tell'iou. When I saw you first lying like one dead on those cold ^anjte stepsj I joved^you.

What is the experience of twenty compared to that of seventy? Virginia, promise me that you will give up Hugli Girard, and pledge yourself to Sextus Weldon when he asks your" " I promise," answered the awed and weeping girl, and then with a tender kiss Captain Dalnare sent her away, being well pleased. What varied and momentous evc nts are ofttime crowded into a single hour of a lifetime. Before the sun of that day set, Virginia Dulnare wore on one lily-white, rose-tippedXnger a ma^ificent d ring^fche sjjrmboi of her betroth^ to Sextus Weldon. And scarcely liad, the cold, yellow circlet grown warm on her finger before Hugh Girard came for the decisive answer he had expected for many weeks.

The color flow ihto tho white cheeks of the astonished girl. €k>d bless you for this, mother !_** she said, rushing into the room where "Hugh Girard lay sick almost; tmto^eath; " I am here, Hugh!" she cried. What words were said in that chamber of illness may not be told. Virginia camc out after halt an hour with a contented smile on her sweet younc lips. "He will Uve?"8oid her mother, kissing the blushing face. "Yofl>'^ ttMWWod Virgie, "he will live for me." And somebody who witnessed the grand wedding that TOCurred a month later spoke of the lovely bride, Virginia, as a heroine of romimce. Chased by a Waterspout. William H. Hallock. who not long ago was a passenger on & steamship of the Pacific Mail company, tells of an exciting experience while the ship was oflf the coasi of Guatemala. A waterspout of tremendous power suddenly appeared near the ship. In the midst oHhe consternation the captain ordered his course reversed and soon the steamer was driving along, with the waterspojut in pursuit. Its crest was hidden in a dark mass of cloud, its. base aeeming ta operiite like anr immense revolving cullender, while the entire external periphery formed a cushion of foam, over which the sea bird screamed, occasionally seizing upon the dead fish which came within reach. The spout itself formed a sort of spiral cylinder, streaked with opaque parallel lines through its whole length, from the surface of tlie sea upward. These lines were evidently ascending columns -of water,„for afterward, when the upper and lower sections became detached, the accumulated volufiae of water overhead immediately began its descent within the' body of the spout, as though it had been the valve of an immense syringe. The water thus released must have been equal to several tons, as it was solid and almost blsick and returned to the sea with a loud roar, all the other parts -ofthoaOTiat'Btruetufe gradually dissipating.- Perhaps the most singulSr of all was the serpentine form assumed by the section ne&rest the clouds, which moved off at first almost horizontally and then turned upon itself in a perfect coil, so that for a moment, when the end of the aqueous rope—or whatever it was—switched around squarely to the ?yeoi the observer, ihowing a section, it resembled a ball of ink. When tho spout was in its finest condition lightning ^several tim^^ through the penumbra in zig-zag' courses, inak-ing a spectacle not only terrible in the mauifpstation of power, but sublimo and beautiful.__ —^ - What To Do liUIase^il^ro.^ The loose garments worn by women and children expose them to especial danger from fire. If the fire starts from the bottom of the dress, the natural upward tendency of the flame soon envelops the whole person, unless by self-control and presence of mind the necessary care be taken by the sufferer, or some one near, without a moment's hesitation. To obey the first impulse and open the doors and lush out, is sure destruction. The only safety is to fall do^n instantly on the floor, and roll over on to the fire, snatching a woolen shawl or rug, if near, to wrap round the body. One is comparatively safe by rolling over and over, for the flames will not rise to the face, and the lungs and breathing will be less likely to be injured. Those who may be in the room, or may come in, have their work plainly before them. Keep doors and windows closed; V irginia,, as my husbapd lookeii when he lay in his coflin. I found your name marked on your clothing. It was the name of a little child who was stolen from mfl years and years ago. While you have been lying here ill I h^ve made a happy discovery. Can you guess what it is?" Virginia could not mistake the expression of the fond, sweet handsome face bent so^lose to her own. " You are my mother," she said. "lam your mother, my darling," answered the lady; "and henceforth, for Virginia Champney, there shall be no moré toil nor troublé, if I can prevent it/' And only for the memory of Hugh Girard, she would have been quite happy. As the daughter of One of the wealthiest and aristocratic ladies of the cityUDIESV DEPARTMENT. Airtuftr to JPIOMMCO. 'A coiiwpolident mf the Chicago 7imes describes thd gfty life of the Florentines, and goes imio raptures over th& bolls and fetes ^hlch enliven tho ancient palaces of their old and fascinating city. We quote this picture of a wealthy lady resident anil of the wonderful parties she gives: • Florence contains at this very ma-ment a veritable Countess Monte Christo, not a theoretical ideal like that of Dumas', but a veritable heroine, with brains enoi4U to think of all sorts of nice things, nnd practical sense and curiosity erfeuglt to give shape and forpi ta her thoughts^ She is English,_ a widow, ricif as Croesus, and amiable as she is good and generous, and even the most-envioiis-cannot-say" 6V11 of Mrs. Greiswood. Shejretjeiv evening, and such weekly receptions were never seen before. The Palazza Dhoogwor^t. jin which she lives, js on the Lung Akno, and is one of the most beautiful i^locbs in Florence. To see t^ese maj^ficent rooms is pleasure enough.. Dancing begins at eleven o'clook, and the cotiflion or German, with which all, the balls of Florence end, continues till five o'clock in the morning—supper at two o'clock. But as I do not wish to give you such an appietite as reading Sir Walter Scott% novels used to give" me, I yrill not describetho " cena "—supper. The last ball was a fete pandre affair, the ladies in powder, patches, and trains, the gentlemen in knee-breeches, silken hose, high heels and diamond buckles. Mesdames Pompadour and DuBarry were there, but it was " the play of Hamlet with Hamlet left out.'^ for even the most il-lu8iona;ry could not see a I/6uis XV. among all this crowd of messieurs in kingly attire. The supper was recheuche, unique; a whole stag ^mothei'cd in jellies filled the center of the tab^lc, while either end rejoiced in a veritable peacock, with his argus-eyed fans all spread, poor birds that had b^en wickedly murdered to grace this lete. But the cotillion favors surpassed all; beautiful fans, gold chains with their hostess' monogram on the medallions, and divera other ridi gifts. At the elosing -J0Lgure.o!f.tlieiiuad411e» 5vhen.atable was placed in the middle of the room with a hand-organ upon it, every one was in delicious suspense. What next? re-soundedin whispers through the room, when in came the second son of the Princess Strozzi, disguised as an organ-grinder in a charming velvet costume, and beamg on his shoulder a deaiv4is-gusting little pet monkey, dressed in satins and tinsels, holding in his little hand a box containing cards upon which eftoh ifidy^ga^iBt's name: hM been written. The monkey was placed on the table, and each courtier in his turn received a card marked " Monkey," and the lucky recipient of the prize favor of the cotiUiou Jiorje^way in triumpLlhis interesting specimen of our original ancestors. The wife of Count Miraflore, a son of Victor Emanuel, the prettiest woman in Florence, appeared in Die most gorgeous costume of pale-blue velvet and white satin. The Marchesa Ginorij wife of the proprietor Of the famous Ginori porcelain factory, was dazzling in the most beautiful diamonds to be seen in Italy. Madame Grieswood wore a superb Worth costume of blue satin, embroidered with silver in ai-a-besque design, pearl necklace, with diamond pendants and tiarapf diamonds in her blonde hair. of green wire attaeliM to ailong green tin window garden on rollers, are among novelties for house ^ocorations. They are mado to fit in firepiacos, or to stand in any part of the room that needs to be screened.Music ÍQ Englajid. Of course music in England centers in London, where there are a surprising number of regular performances. Such are the conoerts of the old established Philharmoi^ie society and the Musical union, and those of the Sacred Harmonic society at Exeter hall: tho oratcriw with mock sorrow and humility. " I want you for my wife, dear." And with scorn in her eyes and disdain on her lips the girl rejected his suit. "The impiidence of the fellow is amusing," laughed Mrs. Champney. " When Capt. Dulnare chose a husband for you, he should have chosen more wisely. I think I shall be a better match-maker, Virgie." "Are you so anxious to lose me?" asked the girl, with humorous naivete. Mrs. Champney smoothed her gray tresses, soberly. " Virginia, you must marry sometime, you know. But that is no reason why you shall not still remain my daughter, i only hope that your future hushand may prove as good and tender and faithful a? your father was. . And now put on your hat and shawlf I am going to take you to see thè hero of a romance. He is the son of one ot the old friends of iny schoolgirl days. Once upon a tinàe-Wje-inade-jiJcodiah-J3Qmpact»^Ìb„at —a table cover—without thinking of the works of art on it. Pull it off! Who cares where the bric-a-brac rolls to? It is a human life in danger. Or snatch a woolen shawl from a chair, a curtoin or a rug, anything but that one human form is valueleas. Wrap the sufffcrer hand stopped their utterance. He looked into Jtipr face. That face Has icy white, btit the brown eyes were like stars of fire. "I understand, Virginia," he said, ilowly; ^ they-have-sDtd"yoTrfor~"goid.~ You loved me, but you «were weak. God help you, darling!" And so Hugh Girard went his way, and Virginia Dulnare fell on her knees, weeping piteous tears in the twilight dusk. A strange sound aroused her. They were calling her to her father's chamber. Trembling, shivering and heart-sick, with af strange, portentious dread heavy on her heart, she obeyed the summons. Captain Dulnatc sat as she had leiT him, in his easy chair; but the frost-white locks, that straggled over the crimson velvet; framed in a bloodless. be- ri^d'faccf; _ Gaptidn Dalnare wasd^. and vno/tum i^nesfc, the dei^ walcti, and our first SOB and daughter should come husband and wife. "Oh!" gasped Virgie, thinking of Hugh GirardT a&d wbnde^^^ shudder, if she was to be the victim ot match-making all her life._____ " Well, this poor fellow fefl" in love with a beautiful girl, who loved him, but she rtijected him for a richer lover. In his despair he left his native place, and in California—that land of gold-he made a fortune. But with money came misery also. He came hpme, and, it is said, to die; Virgie, you'are so sweet and winning ..that I think you can ,catch this desolate heart in the respoiiie, yon know.,Then the old compact shall not have be^n made in vain. Virginia listened with a sin^bg heart. instantly into something that is woolen— the coat from 3^ur back, if nothing else offers—and thus closely wrapped roll her on the floor in the folds. Scores of lives have been saved-in this way, scores lost for want of such immediate action. In case the house is on fire there should be one "captain," if possible. Who can lead the less self-possessed out of the burning building. Every door, window or aperture through which, air can find entrance should be closely shut, except during egress. There are always eight or ten inches of pure air close to the floor, and if one cannot walk erect through the smoke, he should, as soon as enveloped in some woolen article, drop on tlie floor on the hands and knees and crawl out. A silk handkerchief, or piece of flannel or woolen stocking, wet and put over the^ace, will enable one to breathe in dense smoke.—Jfr«. ff. W. Beecher. __________ Tlie Hero a Bull-Fighter is in Spain Speaking of the fete held in Paris for the relief of IheMurcia-sufferers,»^ correspondent; of the l^ndon Truth writes : Of all the innumerable lions at the Hippodrome, the espadas, or professional bull-fightirs, were the most lionised.

If it were customary for them to go in their bare feet, they would, I dare say, wear diamonds in their toes sis well as on their fingers, which are covered with these sparkling gems. . They have double buttons of diamonds, l^ge as .marrowfat peas, to button their^hirt-collars, and rows of smaller ones fastening their embroidered linen broastrfronts.' In the rosettes of their shoe» ^«.stones of the finest water. Spanish ladies of rank are not ashamed to write love letters to ,espadas. .The fisp^a is adaaay-JltliQlit beini^ a fo Fashion ISotea.. Large buttons are more worn than small ones. Buttons with invisible eyes will be much used. , ' Gray and purple are favorite com binations of color in new silk brocades. Watteauand Marie Antoinette styles will prevail for . dresses made of foulards. Heliotrope-colored cashmere and satin of the same color make an elegant costume. Dark claret veivçt and satiii are used to brighten up ecru and almond-colored pongees. Foulard and pongee dresses will be much worn in place of light checked and striped summer silks. The favorite style of make-up for handkerchief dresses is with a plaited basque and a Tallien overskirt. Jet fringes and passementeries and the new " blackberry " buttons are used on the richer black summer toilets. Satin finished foulards in illuminated designs are combined with other foulards in solid colors of various shades. Claret-colored bunting is combined with a fabric of the same color, with white Dutline figures on it in a variety of effective costumes. Breaktast caps are oftener made of colored foulards and fancy handkerchiefs than of white tulle"or capeline*^' the frills, however, are of white lace. _Almond-oolqred and ecru pongee ani other performances in Albert hallj the world-renowned " popular" classical concerts given throughout the winter, on Mondays and Saturdays, at St. Jamra i_the. weekly-ballad-conceits-- ol Mr. Boosey; the Crystal palace concerts, at wWch the b popular music is heard; the steady course of piano-forte recitals, to which the gènius of Von Bulow, Essipoff, and Charles Halle gives character; the performances of various admirable choirs, like Mr. Henry I^esUe's, Mr. Bamby's, Hullah's,and the " Bach ;" and finally the crowd of lesser meetings at which the best may be heard—all filling the London winter and spring. Meanwhile in the provinces music is stirring perpetually, the best orches^tral, society bdùg Mrr Cfiafles . Halle's at Manchester f'the best choriises being those of Yorkshire. Then there are the creat annual or triennial festivals at Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Norwich, Worcester and Leeds ; and in all parts of the country music is striven Ipr in some fashion—all, I think I may say, the result of education and princi-l)le, rather than the out^owth of any native instinct. And in this consists the most curious feature of music in England. The English people can admire and respect what they do not /eel, or rather what they do not respond to with a heart-beat; they can understand and enjoy scientifically what they can never fathom ; but the result of this is extreme slowness ; they must be habituated to anything good before they encourage it. Few compositions take an English audience by storm ; few innôvàtiôiis'âfë made welcome i bill llië faiÏÏÎ liés mill the Temperament, not $he intellect, of the people. That touch of musical instinct which lies dormant in the dullest Teutonic mind is unknown to the multitude of English heatei^; they must be reasoned with, and taught lo enjoy. That responsiveness which asks no motive, question^ no result, only receives and gives fortb , and which is the spirit of musical knowledge as well as interpretation, always ready and anxious for new sounds, new sensations, is not an English trnit. Does not this explain why the Philharmonic orchestra of 1833 had to decline the "Ninth Symphony," and thfc Harmonic society, at Exeter hall, struggled hard to convince their audtences tliat an oratorio - performance should not be desecrated by intervals of operatic song? At present, it seems to me, the taste of the people is with the mediocre ballads or Italian music; the judgment of the people with heavy classical and eacrtd muBic ; the eouI of the people—nowhere, musically speaking, since it is too rarely touched to be known and written down. This looks, perhaps, like an anomaly. If the people are not soul-responsive and appreciative, how does it happen that no continental citiei'are so full as London of the very best musical "pertorm-anccs from November to June? How are these supported and renewed regularly year after year? The answer is found in a certain well-known element in the English character—constancy and loyalty to what is taught as the best in îirt or science ; works which other and the English are generous enough in adding new laurels to a crowned brow. —Mrs John Lillie, in Uarper^s Magazine.

I heard a funny story of a llttle Boston boy the other day, which I think has never been in print. His father had amused himself by teaching the bri,ght little fellow several words and phrkses in a number of languages, so that ho had quite a reputation as a linguist. An Englishman of some note dined with' the family one day, and the child was much interested in watching him and listening to his conversation. After dinner the guest took him on his knee, with the remark: "I hear you know a groat many languages; tell me liow many you know;" "Oh! I know French and German and Italiun and Spanish, and that is all. "But you know English?" "No! I don't know English, ' he answered, with n very positive shake of the head " Yes, you do, certainly," persisted, the English-!.mn. "Itellyou. I d^ not!" replied the,child, almost impatiiyitly. and very emphatically. »"My p.apa knows English, I s'poee, but I only know two words4n EngUsli-l". -" Ahi what are they?
