The following true story might perhaps furnish matter for o little coweily. if come dies were still written: It iri generally tbe case that the mort beautiful nnit the richer a young female is, the more iliftieult tire hoth tier parents ftnd horself ii: the choice of a husband, and tbe moro ofl'ers they refuse. The one is too tall, the other too short, this not wealthy, and that not respectable enough. Meanwhile ono spring passes after another, aud year after year curries away leaf after leaf of the bloom of youth, aud opportunity after opportunity. Jliss Harriet Sehvood 'was the richest heiress iu her native town, but she had already completed her twenty seventh ycav, nnd beheld almost all young friends united to men whom uho had, at one time or other, discarded. Harriot uogan to be set down for an old immi. Her parents began to br- unoasy, nnd she herself amented in private a position which is not a natural one, and fo which those to whom ui-c and fortune have I'ecu niggard of their gifts are obliged to wubmii. Jtut Hai- was handsome and very rich. Such wiw the state of things when ht.r'.m- clo, a wealthy merchant in tlio north of Eng- and. canio on a visit to her parents. He was jovial, lively, straightforward mau, accus- tomed to attack all dinicnlties boldly nnd coolly. "Yon snia her father to himonu dny, 'Harriet continues single. The girl is hand- ioiue what she is to have for her fortune, 'ou know; oven in this scandal loving town uot a cveaturo can braathc an imputation against her." replied tho uncle Mjiil look yon, Brother, the grand point iu every affair in his world is to seize the right moment; this pou have uot doue. It is a misfortune, but ot the girl go along with me. and before the md of three months I will return her to you is tho wife of a man as young and wealthy us herself." Away went the nircowith bur uncle. Ou bo way home he thus addressed her: "Mind vunt I am going fo Bay. You are no longer Uss Solwpod, but Mrs. Lumley, ray uiece, young, wealthy, childless widow; you had he misfortune to loso your husband, Col. ".umley nfter a happy imiou of a quarter of year, by n fall from his hor.-.e '.virile hmit- ng." "But, "Let rue if you Lum- ey. Your father bns invented me with full lowers. Here, look you, is the wedding iug given you by your late husbaml. Jewels ud whatever else you need, your aunt will upply you with: ,and accustom yourself L-i ast down your eyes." The kesu witted uncle introduced bis ncice very where, and everywhere the young wid- excited n gi-jtU nrmsuiiuu. The guniie- nen thronged about her aud she soon had her hoico out of twenty suitors. Her imelo ad- isisd her to accept tho ono that wns tho deep stiu love with her.and a rare chance decreed iiat tliisshould be tho tuost amia- lo aud opulent, Tha mutch wan soon cou- nud one day tbe uncle desired to say fow words to" his future nephow iu pri- itc. "My doar ho began, "we have told ou au untruth. "How so? Are Mrs. Lumley's Nothing pf tho kind; my niece is smcere- attached to you." "Then her fortune, I suppose, is not o what you told mo "On tho nontrnry, it is liirgor." wliat is tho matter, then "A innocsut joke, winch camo ito my bend one day, when f wn-s in good umorj we could not well recnll itnftovwav.l ly uioca is not a widow." ''What is Col. Lumley living "No, no, slio is a spinster."

QUF.EH You boys wid g'rls, just before tbe shirt-collar and back-liair age. manage to twist words in a comical way. Ofteu I have a good time listening to the wee folk who come to our meadow. One day a little girl, seeing, in the last part of one of her Christmas books, that a sequel to it would soon bo published, called out to a playmate, "0, Kitty! isn't this nice? My new book's got a squeal to But she was quite accurate, compared with a little bit oi" a boy, who caaie to creek with some other children, one day last summer, to look for water-cresses.

It is the own of Meadow Lake, on the Sierra Neva- da range, POOO feet abovfi the level of the ;ea. The spot on which it in situated is full gold, and in ififio there was R great rush hither, feet of the land being aken up in the Summer of that year. By pring the next year the Califoniians had iccome perfectly wild over the golden pros- iGCts of the region, nud during Slay, and 'nut uot less than 400M people found their way up there, aud the retd estate went up ike a kite, sixty by eighty lots bringing rom to A town of f.00 houses vas built. The trouble was with the ore, n which there was KOUJG substance that would not yield to the usual processes, and. n addition, the snow wsg not unfrecjuently wcniy live feet on a level, terrible storms teiug common RK Inte as June. All nt once he people saw that nature had played an wful practical joke on them, and they aban- loned tbe town so precipitately that a recent isitor there, walking on snow shoes through he streets eu a level with the second stories ooking into the windows, saw the furniture tnndjng just ns Ibp nrciipfmts bnd used The Daubury News in as liWe remem- ber n'i occasion, when the wind was blowing direct from the west, aud bad been blowing from that direction and bid fair to blow straightfrom that direction as long as there iras any direction loft, that n man. we need not dressed in his best suit of clothes and with pomade on bis hair, stood on the west side of a sitive of co.U nsheG nnd undertook fo screen them.

One sieve full of coal ashes, with tho operator dressed for church, has been known to change the wind to thirty-two points of tho compass."

They come to us with two or three practical queries like these showing the little excuse they is for dullness: ''Is it notprobabln tlml you mistake tbo object of life, when you wish to Icavo tho niche in which find yourself, simply be- cause it is dull Is uot tho object of life formation of character, rather than securing much pleasure The chamcfor that c.innpt ondm'O discomfort will lie beaten down be- fore It w easy to expand one's or better, recognizing, both duties aud pleasures.

Tho most surprising things cnu bo done in this direction, if QUO has a little fact, pn- tienca nud hearty good will toward theigno- rnnt, dull people. It is easy to work for ngreenblo people, but how to got, interested in tho stupid ones is tho problem which ia only solved as one ceases to thiiilt much about one's own enjoyment."
