For Una reason we will have recourse lo fictions ndclrcsses, and introduce our young lady acquaintance as Miss Clara Clinton, and her lather as Judge Clinlou ofClinlonvillc. Iliat is Ihe. called tliu Judge "lue odelest man that ever lived." Jfoddily eonsisis of having away of his own, Judge Clinton was a very odd man. lie would insist upon living iu n liiile brown old fashioned bouse, without carpels upon the floors and what was more vexations, be would not allow a sofa, or lo'inge, or rocking cliair inside Ilic four brown walls. As be had an idea (bat llie whole country was going to rack ind ruin, because the 1 men wort broadcloth and tho women wore be declared lie would wear homespuu long as be lived, and bis women folks Bhould be restricted to calico. As we have nothing lo do wilh Mrs. Judge ClhUnn, wo will not allude lo Ihe beany vexation willi which she carried nut the whimsical old Judge's domestic rela- tions. As she could do nothing wiser Ilian lo gulp down her chagrin, she did gulp it down, and, womanlike, prclendert lo be- lieve wilh her husband, lhai ihey could re- form Ihc world by making themselves con- spicuously mean and iincomfoitable. Jiulge Clinton' was slill in iudigo-colored homespun, and Mrs. Judges Clinton in nine- penny calico, when Hiss Ciara Clinlon, hav- ing reached the. age of eighteen, nnd having a will of her own (which her mother was careful lo tell everybody tho child inherited from her announced her desire and determination to go lo n boarding school, Tbe Judge himself bnd been n poor toy. self-educated Ibrough bis own exertions! Ilo was a proof ofbis humble birll, and the difficulties he had overcome 05 Brundeiy. Uc had read Virgil by Ihe aid of a pine knot, and Greek by Ihc aid of a penny candle, nnd solved the problems of Euclid by moon light. He respected bul ODO desire In Ilic world, and that was a thirst for So when Miss Clara proiesled that the must and could and would go lo a boarding school, Juelfje: Clinlon cheerfully acquiesced and ex. prtsscd himself ready lo "casb over." .No sooner was Ibis interesting subjccl broached, however, than, to Miss CIsra's surprise, her father selected the most expen- sive, thorough And aristocnuic iusttlulion in the country, paid the yearly expanses in ad- vance, and senl her at once lo complelc her education, with Ircenly-five cemr for spend- ing money, and Ilircc Calico gowus for her wardrobe I It wf-s bad enough, Miss Clara said, sob- bing all the while us if her beautiful eyes had really been liquid founimns, lo bo obliged to dress in calico bul have. Ihrcc calico gowns all alike, from the eclf-famc piece, so that her companions would think she had but one, ihul was "ihc hardest to bear of all." Hul Ihe old Judge was incorrigible, lit saved shillings and sixpence by having Ihem all alike and be was satisfied if his daughter was nol. ItiVnS a bright, cie.ir May morning, when Hiss Clara bade adieu to Ihe ugly brown hon.cslcad, and her mother who wiped her tears on her calico apron, anel the sheep Ibal bore Iho fleeces from which her futher's homespun was made.
