Leech. 1" i do continued the solemn broken voice. The we Piug Maiden by the bedside. Trio wasted hands were raised Over the Heads of Tho kneeling figures the Pale lips of the dying woman the Tongue tried to utter a Blessing but All brightness faded from Tho Oyea. The woman was dead. Two Young girls Knelt at the bed Side. Constance Owen was the name of Ono with Sallow skin and Large Brown eyes and Edith Ormond she was called with ringlets of Gold float ing around her fair neck and whose head was leaning upon the shoulders of Constance who and promised the dying woman to be a sister Mother the fair Maiden at her Side. The Strong faithful homely girl called Constance was an adopted Daugh Ter of the dead of those waifs of the Street whose Only Hopo of life is in Tho Charity of some tender hearted stranger. She however re paid her protector by a love and regard tis filial As that of her own daughter Aud when upon her deathbed mrs. Or mond bade Constance Owen make her the solemn Promise Brave girl not Only did not falter bit whispered once More to the stricken girl at her Side yes Edith for the Sake of the love your dear Mother gave to the orphan will i love you better than and darkness was in that chamber desolation in Tho hearts of the mourn ers. Two years years since Edith the Beautiful and Constance the Brave had lost their Best earthly Friend. The former had grown More Lovely even than the Promise of the Dawn of her Radiant Maiden Hood the latter More homely Large featured in face but with the two years an added dignity of mein a More intelligent Light in the quiet tender Brown eyes and Force of charac Ter better defined in every movement. There Ca me Many suitors to Bonny the Little country scat belong ing to Edith was so far the Little coquette did not much heed to any of them. She was chasing Tho but tories of fancy around the Gard cd of youth. Jut us length her Beauty Grace and it rapt High so Cia brought Ono tiny to Tho Gates of Bonny Brook Ono or. Pauld up a Superior Aud rising Young any Siciu who lived in the City close by and when to had found his Way to the pleasant Jou utry Nook somehow he discovered patients in that Vicinity very frequently. Was it Edith s fair face that made him take that Blooming Highway so often he was. Indeed fascinated by her Bright girlish Beauty and one evening after to Hud been wandering in the Gar Dens under the Moon soft pleasant words must have been spoken for after he had gone Edith with n flushed fact1, dashed into the room where Constance was awaiting her and throwing her around her said in a Happy trembling voice of Darling i am so Happy. He has told me he loved Constance spoke not a word Edith was held a moment to a beating heart a soft kiss touched her forehead and Tho next moment she was alone. He loves me to loves and Edith looked out Over the gardens from which the Dews of night were Dis tilling All their doors she gazed at Tho round Beautiful Moon and peopled the shadows with Tho figure of the Man who had first stirred her Young life with the divine music of love. A Mouth after the pleasant confession had been made Edith was called to the mountains of Vermont to attend a dying aunt the Only sister of her dear Mother and she had to proceed alone As Donnybrook would have lacked a guardian if Constance had accompanied Paulding s duties utterly denying him that pleasure. Constance was engrossed in her Home duties and saw but Little society save a few rustic neighbors who Only recommended themselves by their Good Ness of heart and certainly not by the brilliancy of their wit or understand ing. Onco and a while or. Paulding would ride out to Donnybrook As con Slauco told him from Tho Force of old but soon it seemed that the Man of Medicine and science did not carry on the conversation with the Oil Easo Grace and spirit. What had Corno of tween Constance Owen and himself something inexplicable. The Soblo woman found a strange rare pleasure in Tho society of the gifted Ina the scholarly Man a sympathy with the Large hearted intellectual woman which to had never known or experienced in any of her Box. To said to himself she is not Beautiful indeed measured by the rules of Beauty she is positively ugly. But who can gauge the charms of a melodious voice or define the tender Ness of an honest kindly Eye and she too mused in this Wise this or. Charles Paulding is a mar Volousky gifted Man. What Powers of language what treasures of imagination he possesses i what a Noble career he has before him and she would pause and think of that clinging Tendril not As helping the growth of the Oak but As drawing from its strength. Yet from All such thoughts As these her staunch and Loyal heart would resolutely turn for All this her speech would not come As tripping by on the Tongue As in the old Days and he would oftentimes finish a sentence in the Middle of it and then lose himself in vague glances at the ceiling or out into the gardens. O i it was a dangerous time for both of these Awakening hearts. But they glided on this treacherous Stream and seemed Only conscious that the hours were Sweet and that the Sun shone on the Waves. There was no thought of disloyalty in either heart. He was above All a Man of Honor and she of All else a Loyal woman. Yet How hearts delude themselves. In the very Pride of his strength Samson was shorn of his locks. One quiet devout big in july or. Pauld ing had taken ton at Donnybrook and hostess Only she called Down to the Gato with him. His impatient horse was biting the rough old hitching Post and throwing up Clouds of Clust with his fore feet. He had been kept there four hours Aud he seemed More eager than his master to leave Donnybrook behind him. Tho doctor idly Luckul some Heliotrope As they strolled Down the Rose bordered paths and mingled with the Flowers some Dainty mignon Luetto and a Pale Bud or two of the Tea Rose. At last he placed the bouquet in her hands and said dreamily head the emblems who Are a priestess in Flora s Beautiful she quickly looked Over them. Sho said you choose Well. Sir botanist. Here you have Beauty in is and i am not a summer is better than All. But Yon flatter with your Flowers not he replied eagerly almost tenderly and in a voice that somehow frightened her. She replied almost her heart was strangely beating and a warm unusual color was in her face my Best Friend will Tell you doctor that t am ugly and commonplace. Be Lieve them i beg of Yon and do not let your imagination invest me with any he seemed All at once carried away by his passion. He leaned Over her and replied warmly i say you Are Beautiful Constance Owen. I feel your Beauty in my very but he said no More. Tho face of Constance was a study the flush that before had Crim soned her Cheeks died out Ord she became ghastly Pale. Her fingers which had clasped the Flowers slowly opened and they dropped to the ground at her feet. All at once the vision of the dead woman seemed to present itself to her mind and the Trust she was violating struck cold to her heart. Was this the for Ever Sho had spoken she staggered and would have fallen the arms of or. Paulding were about her but she waved him away in a moment with such a piteous despairing gesture that he obeyed her without a word. She Only had strength to falter remember she staggered Back toward the House leaving him standing there Bent and trembling. She did not know How she reached her own room Tho Strong woman had Learned at the same moment she loved that she must sacrifice and renounce. She stood for hours White and motionless looking out at the Sunset nud the gathering gloom of evening with wild thoughts chasing themselves through her brain and with a dumb aching pain in her heart every Hope trailing in tie Clust like those Sweet Flowers he had Given her. Sho Laid her head after awhile upon her hands on Tho window casement of her room and wept softly through Tho Long Long hours until Sho heard Tho Village Bell strike the hour of Midnight. She had prayed and wrestled with her grief and agony and Rose up at Long ii quiet and Calm. She had yielded to duty and her Promise to the dead. Somehow Constance Owen seemed to grow prettier the months passed was seme refining change which was softening her rugged feat tiros and rounding every line in her stately form. The summer into autumn had flown and still Edith Ormond had not returned to Donnybrook. Her aunt had died and letters came from time to Tinc saying that Ere Long she would be Home yet Sho came not. Could Sho suspect the disloyalty of her Lover it was late in the fall when the Woods put on their pomp of glory and Tho chill winds sent the fallen leaves through the valleys near Bonny Brook when or. Paulding Rode up to the House and asked for Constance. She had Only received him twice before Sinco the summer evening and had then contrived by womanly tact not to be alone with she no longer doubted her strength. Con stance on this occasion received her guest alone there seemed a strange embarrassment in his manner. After the first greetings were Over he said Constance i have much to say to you to Day. Do you think you can listen to me she replied if it is upon a subject on which you should speak added trembling by to Whitti i should he said. When first i saw Edith Ormond i was captivated by her Beauty and girlish graces i thought i loved Constance would have stopped him by a gesture but he gently begged her to for you can do so he snid in All Honor and he continued i had never had my heart stirred by the full knowledge of love however until i knew you and discovered the breadth of your sympathies and the Woma Liness of your character. I never Ruso acted you More than when you rejected to knowing i was the engaged husband of but Fate has been kind to us his voice was trembling with Emo Tion. Bead the last part of this he handed a folded paper to con stance who took it As one in a dream. From she said. The portion she read ran Thiis so you see dear or. Paulding it is better i should Tell you now that i have met one Cousin i feel that i love better than anybody in the world. I have promised to be his wife and i am sure you will forgive me for you Are so Noble and grand and All that and i should feel i know that i never could fill worthily the exalted sphere of or. Paulding s Constance could read no More a. Mist gathered Over her eyes but this time a Strong Arm was about her and a voice deep and melodious whispered to her Dearest Constance will you be mine at their lips met for Tho first time in one Long kiss of love and her answer was yes wet an1the Salesman.

Stories Fob children. An Odd Nett. In the town of Monongahela which is in the state of Pennsylvania there lives a Man named or. Joseph h. Her Rou. Some time ago or. Herron bought one of those pen handles called the Tele scope or hollow handle. The handle was made of tin and a Little girl could put her Little Finger in the hollow so big around was it. But or. Herron never used that pen except when he would write with red Ink and that was not More than once a week. The other Day when he picked it up to use it out flew a Wasp like insect known As the yellow jacket. This insect is smaller than the Bee and has yellow stripes All Over its very fashionable dress among insects no doubt. Or. Herron put Tho pen Down and watched. By and by Back came or. Yellow jacket and looking around to see that every thing was right crawled into the hol Low. After watching for a Long while or. Herron saw that or. Yellow jacket and his wife had built their nest inside the penholder and were Raisier a family of Little yellow jackets too. Or. Y. J. Would Fly out and soon return with Grain of sugar or some such food and mrs. Y. J. Would almost always meet him As Tho door. Or. Herron took tip Tho pen and wrote with it and the scratch scratch did not suit the family but when he Laid it aside again they busied themselves with the Little y. Jyh. As usual. Tho Ioco Inove Hawk. It is very queer but it seems that there Are rogues and rascals among Ani Mals Tish and Birds just As there Are among men. One of the worst rascals among Birds is the Hawk. There lives a cunning old Hawk along a Railroad be tween the stations of Meb Viny and rur Nilly in France. He has lived of he Railroad for fifteen years and he has reason for not moving to bume other part of the country. One of fhe engineers on that Road says that he will Fly along with the train going fast when the train goes fast and slow when the train slackers its Speed. He knows that All the Little Birds Fly up from the Hedges and brushes by the Side of the track when the trains and so he can eastly pounce Down of them. If it were not for Tho train the old pirate would have to go searching through the Woods and Fields for his prey Beciri a Birds know that they must hide from him and that they can do it in every other place except Elong the Railroad. In fuel they might see him there but to keeps himself hidden in the Solip and Stiim in act by the locomotive. It n pity that Tbs ure not Able to run away from the Hawk but he can Fly nil a Ouid them however fast they May be running. Many thousand minutes ago in Tho time of the Good Caliph Abou Ben Stokley who reigned Over the Metropolis of Mauny Uuk there lived a very proud and scornful. One Day the doll said to a Meek and lowly Caramel who d to an old Cream Cara Mel i d like to know i the poor Caramel was offended and saying i m Sweet anyhow and besides one of your eyes won t squint cause it s out o went off to itself and wept. Just then the bad brother of the doll s mistress came along and seeing the state of affairs said poor dear Caramel if the doll won t love Yon i slipped the Caramel into his Mouth. After the bad brother had gone the doll s mistress came in. Who s got my Caramel said she and falling into a mad pet seized the doll and threw it out at the window in the Gutter below. Better to have a Pound of Good caramels Christmas than a whole Houseful of proud dolls. Sir. Worst and the Havvar Here is another Hawk Story. This Hawk thoughts got a French Bird but a while or. Geo. N. Worst a funny name in t it All have heard of or. Best but who heard of or. Worst before or. Worst who lives in Lancaster was shooting Birds out in the country he saw a Large Hawk sitting in a tree. He crept up very close and fired at the Hawk. The Hawk fell to the ground. Or. Worst ran to pick it up and Tho Hawk kept quiet until he saw the hand approaching. Then he pecked out with his Sharp beak and Tore one of or. Wors s fingers almost off. Now if it wore not wicked to make what is called a Pim or play upon words one might ask did or. Worst get the Best of it that or. Yellow jacket s cousins. A Cousin of the yellow jacket is the Hornet an insect who is known for his bad temper and also for the Way in which he Sticks pins. In the town of Chambersburg pa., a Farmer entered or. J. S. Nixon s drug store holding in his hand a Hornet s nest As big As a Straw hat. Or. Nixon Hung the nest up Over where a Gas was burning. Soon ten hornets came out of the nest very unexpectedly and in ten seconds there was t a Man in the store. Or. Nixon did t know the hornets were there but they were and had been warmed into life by the Gas. Trio Luxembourg Palace where the French Assembly recently met for Tho first time was built in 1012 by Marie Cle Medicis and made Over by her to her son Anston d Orleans when he was sent into exile through the influence of Cardinal Richelieu. At his death the Palace be came the property of his daughters mile de Hontz Cusidor and Elizabeth do Guise by the last named of which it was made to Louis xiv., and so became Crown property.

Sib Boyle Roche. Tie celebrated Iris i Jull perpetrator a interesting the most notorious Bull perpetrator was sir Boyle Roche who was elected member for Tralee in 1775. To had a regular blundering reputation. He was known Tipon one occasion after a with ering exposure or patriotic denunciation of government to say with solemn Gravity or. Speaker it is the duty of every True Lover of his country to give his inst Guinea to save the remainder of his or if the subject of debate was some National calamity he would deliver himself thus sir single misfortunes never come alone and the greatest of Allna tonal calamities is generally followed by one much greater sir Boyle Roche belonged to the ancient family of de la russe of Ler Moy he was created a baronet in 1782, and was married to the eldest daughter of sir James Caldwell but had 110 heir. He used to account for his Lack of Prog Eny by saying that it was hereditary in our family to have do another of his blunders was made when speaking of the fish hawkers. They go Down to he observed buy the Herrings for Hali nothing and sell them for twice As a letter supposed to have been written by sir Boyle Roche during the Irish rebellion of 1708 gives an amusing collection of his various blunders. Perhaps he never put so Many on paper at a time but his Peculiar turn for bulls is Here shown at one View. The letter was first printed in the Kerry of print Deap. See having now a Little peace and quiet i sit Down to inform Yon of Tae Bustle Ami confusion to Are ill from the mood thirsty Ruffels Many of whom Are now think god killed and dispersed. To Are in a pretty Mem can get nothing to eat and no wino to drink except whisky. When we Ait Down to dinner to Are obliged to keep both bands armed.

I should have answered Yorkjr letter a fortnight ago but i Only received it tins morning indeed a mail arrives ears without being robbed. No longer ago than yesterday the mail coach waa robbed near this town the bags had been very judiciously left behind for fear of accidents and by great Good Luck there nobody in the coach except two on tide sengers who had nothing for the thieves to take Las. Thursday an alarm was Piven that a gang of rebels in fall Retreat from Drogheda were advancing under Tho fre Ucli but they jul no colors nor Auy Drums except bagpipes. Immediately even Man in the place including women and children ran out to meet them. We Roqu found on Force a Deal too Little were far too near to think of retreating. Death was in every and to it we went. By the Tincu half our party were killed we began to be All alive. Fortunately tha it bes had no guns except mud pikes and we ban plenty of Musket a and a Mimi icon. Yfe nut them ail to the sword not a foul of them except Home that were drowned in adjoining bog.

Knowledge is Soruco Ticino since a lady asked us the origin of the phrase knowledge is Aud we replied by mail that it was attributed to lord Bacon. She now replies by an extract from a never s my in which the Cipres Ion is quoted accompanied by a no such sentence is to be found in All lord Bacon s works. Vote saw Bui War s statement when the novel appeared in far Eicr s and smiled complacently Over our own Superior knowledge As we had traced the quotation to the treatise of Bacon on sects and opinions de where it occurs in parenthesis and rends l Nam bul wer and others naturally looked for the thought in Bacon s advancement of and not finding anything like it there gave up the search. In the connection Bacon is describing a sect which held Peculiar views on the subject of predestination. He says that they give wider limits to the knowledge than to the Power of god implying that he May Foreknew acts without necessarily pre ordaining or rather they restrict his Power of doing More than his Power of knowing for knowl Edge itself is a this does not mean that knowledge confers Power but that the capacity to know May be termed a York journal of Commerce. Health of horses. The health and Comfort of horses have of late years been greatly improved by Tho better construction of stables. They Are made More Roomy and lofty and provided with Means of thorough ventilation. In Many new stables lofts Are done Awny with or the floor of the lofts is kept Well above the horses Heads and ample shafts Are introduced to convey Awny foul Nir. By perforated bricks and gratings under the mangers and elsewhere round the Walls and also by Bay windows and ventilators abundance of pure air is secured for Tho horses while being introduced in moderate amount and from various directions it comes in without draught. Too much draught is almost an unknown stable luxury. To secure a constant Supply of pure air horses require More cubic space than they generally enjoy. Even when animals Are stabled Only at night a minimum of cubic feet should be allowed. In England the newer cavalry Barracks give a minimum of feet with a ground area of fully ninety Square feet per horse and the Best Hunting and Carriage Lior ses have More of chemistry. Our first in heaven. The touching sentiment our first in appeared after an obituary notice in a Philadelphia paper and the father of the child came into the office raging mad. It was the third death in the family and he desired to know of the clerk where he supposed the other two had gone. The Charleston news says that the original act of secession of South Caro Lina passed dec. 20, 1860, is preserved in the office of the Secretary of state in the Capitol at Columbia.

Sub Bruj women. Of course the age has gone by in which Man can find the satisfaction to used to take in Tho Mere brute of physical superiority to women. But has he got rid of the aboriginal desire to play the lord holding fast in his hands the bulk of the desirable positions in life does he look with satisfaction on the idea of women stepping in and claiming a modest percentage of them the Man is neither a fool or a sentimental hypocrite who would assert that the masculine majority does. Poll the colleges of Tho land and take the vote of the chivalric whether the Young women of the country should enjoy the same advantages of Educa Tion with themselves. Nino to ten they would Black Ball the idea. Of course they think they do this in the Best interest of the girls who Are too Sweet and dear to be reserved for any purpose but balls and drives and Lawn Tennis. And it must be admitted that whole levies of them Are wonderfully attractive for these purposes. But suppose a certain proportion of them do desire a broader education and Are unhappily endowed with an amount of brain and enthusiasm that makes them restless and miserable under conditions that Content the average. Do the ranks of Man spontaneously Divide for their passage through do the hats come off in respect while the voices raise the Salve no from the Start the Superior girl has to take an amount of snubbing from Hes Brothers at Home society at Large and the established orders a the medical or other profession she aspires to that would Bluff off and dishearten half the boys and Young men of the land. There Are no doubt notable exceptions to such disposition among men and their number is increasing. Still the True Knight err Antry of the age is As yet confined to Tho limited few who having conquered the seductive luxury of indulging in a certain intellectual contempt for women Are chivalrous by addressing themselves to the Rescue of distressed Maidens set upon by a mob ners. Marriage again is surrounded As among civilized people by Laws of forbidden which Are very curious very Little understood and which in Many ways resemble while in others they seem to Diller from the Laws of other undeveloped Peoples.
