Of course he was shooed off wil'n a. little more vigor, perhaps-, -because Mr Thorn ton had at that moment been passing, and had seen this woman who would never keep hens presenting that tab- leau. In two or three days after that Aunt Helen, coming home at twilight from one of her rambles by the river-bank, was observed to be very nervous and flushed, and to look much as ifshc had been crying. "'It's all said coming in shortly after her. "I know all about it I've been setting my eel traps; and what do you met old Thorn- "She. did indeed. And what'll you say to that man's cheek He up and spoke to her now, Ned i Before yon 1" '''Fact. Before me?

Oh, how could you Aunt Helen 1" "Guess you'd have been no-better in splcTthe unscrupulous boy. there, that's all. If 1 couldn't listen, of course ynu can't." now, Ned, we all chorused together. "Well, then. He stood straight before her. said he 'have you fergol- and she began to turn while I have had time enoutrh, said she." Oh. you ouaht not to have staid, "You mny find out iho rest by your said the oflenilud narrator, "I should like to know how I was going to leave. Only I'll say this, that if Aunt [lelen-'Would marry old Thornton to-day wouldn't touch him with a walk- To our amazement, on the very next afternoon who should appear at our gate with his phaeton and p.iir, but Mr. Thornton and who bonneted and gloved and veiled, should issue from the door, lo; be placed in that phaeton and drive off with him, but, Aunt IJeien. Ned chuckled but the rest of us could do nothing but wonder. "Has she eone to be married we gasped. And Jjill and Harry began to cry. I'll tell said Ned, in mercy. "He said there'd never been''% day since he left her that he had not longed for what he threw away." "Oh, how wicked "She told him so, very quietly and tell you Aunt Helen can DO to be silent on that said she. 'And ever.' said she. 'It is. said 'ie. And then ho went over, one by one, a dozen different days and scenes when they were young; and if a fellow Pelt mean, I was the one "I should think you we cried, with one accord. look returned Ned. "If you want to hear the rest, you keep that sort of remark to yourself It was too ate for me to show myself, anyway. And-I'll be blamed if I'll say.another word if you dnn't every one acknowl- edge you'd have done just as 1 did." "Oh, Ned, do tell the whole That's good she just began to never saw Aunt Helen cry then as if he would go distracted and he begged her not to ery, and she cried the more; and he becgcd her n marry him out of know ust how to do it now only it doesn't seem to be a very successful she shook her head and he implored ler. by their old Jove, he said, nnd bhc wiped her eyes, and him, and cave a hateful sort'.of a laugh Our old said she. said ie, 'if you will not for for vour own for the that old love, mnrry me for the sake of the motherless who r-eecRyou than hildren ever needed ji mother yet, inid wh'cM-whb driving; me And4 he'rr'Aunt JJelev good, sweet, ringing peal; and tho long and the' short fof lit ,Js th.ntjsho ,has driven up toTKe Thornton IfSuse 'to-day o look at the cubs she hinKs about them H'aynb'e she'll bring try work, you know." t I declare the final chorus. ,1 An-driwe satin silence ngood anjesour. tiad' na returned, and Mr Thornton had come in with her and sat down upon thp pi- azza-.step, at her feet, bat not at all with un air of an accepted more like a tenant of Mohammed's coffin, we thought And, as I began to tell were all sitting and swing- ing there when Aunt Helen exclaimed about its being u scene of domestic com- fort. As she sat down, the big black- Cochin hen came to meet her. and Aunt Helen threw her a bit of water cracker, n supply of which she always carried wi-h her nowadays. "Why, wherc'fl your husband said she to the hen. "There he said Ned. "He's been up there alone in that corner or the grass the whole day, calling and cluck- ing and inviting company: but the rest havn't paid the least attention to him, and are picking and tcratching down among the currants "Oh, but he's been down there twise. cried Harry, "and tried to whip the little bantam, but it was a drawn battle." "Well he ought to have a little vaca- tion, and scratch for himself a said Aunt Helrh. "lie has picked and scratched for his hen and .her family in the most faithful way all summer." "And so's the said Ned. "The the best; he's taken as nmnh care of the chickens as the hen has, any way and he never went to roost all of the time his hen was selling, Mr. Thornton, but sat right down in tho straw beside her every "A model said Aunt Hiiien. "They are almost, human." said Mr. Thornton. And so we sat talking till the tea bell rang, for Mr Thornton was going to stay to f.ea, he boldly told us and we saw that he meant to get all the youngpooplo on his side by the way he began to talk to" Ned about trout and pickerel, and about deep sea fishing but when he got, to eel f rips, Ned's was purple, and he blessed that tea bell, I fancy. However, Mr. Thornton might have found that it wasn't so eusy to range the young people on his side if he had made a long-cot.tinued effort. We enjoyed a romance under our eyes, bui we had no sort of notion of his taking our Aunt Helen away. We were just coming out from fca, and were patronizing the sunsRtn little, which was uncommonly fine, and I thought I had never seen Aunt Helen looking like such a beauty, with that ricli light overlaying her like a rosv bloom, when John name hastening up "I just want you all to step inside the barn door with uic, if you please ma'am." said he. And we went after him to be greeted by the sweet smell of the new-mown hay. and to be gilded by the one great broad sunbeam swiuiming full of a glory of motes from door to door. you see fiaid John. It was a flock of the liens and chickens on their customary roosts. "And non do you see he said and he turned about and showed us, on the top rail of the pony's manger, the big black Cochin also gune '.o roost, but separate- his wile bes'de him No. but little Mrs Bnntam "That's who lie has been clucking and calling to this whole afternoon, the wretch cried Nv'l. "And now look here." said John and we followed him into the harnass- rooui. where, the chickens had chanced to be hatched, and there, in the straw, on the. floor, sat the disconsolate liltle bantam rooster, all alone, with his wings spread and his feathcis puffed out. brooding bis four little chickens under his four little chickens de- serted by their mother. "I declare! I cried Aunt we came out into the great moty sunbcahv again ''the times are so depraved that it, has reaily reached the barn-yard. The poor little banty aod his brood Why, its as bad as the forsaken merman." "Only not so said we. "Helen." said Mr. Thornton, "it is exactly my condition. Are you going to have pity for that bird, and none for me Are you going to leave me to my And ;n a moment, right before us all, as she stood in that great red sunbeam, Mr. Thornton put his anno round Aunt Helen, who, growing rosier and rosier, either from the sunbeam or something else, could do nothing at last but hide her face.- said he you are certainly coming home with And Aunt Helen did not say no. A romantic reason is given for the re- cent fidelity of the Sioux chief. Spotted Tail to Government, although he has no cause to love, the white men. He had a daughter who fell in love with a young officer at Fort Laramie, but she was deserted by him and eventually died of a broken heart. Her influence over her father was so overmastering hat ho vowed on her death bed that ic would make peace with the whites, since it wish, and would never Tgain take, up arms against them.

Oftuglit at Last .Foreign papers received at New York Friday last bring a circumstantial nar- rative by; a resident of Objm, Scotland, from which it appears the sea serpent has been actually captured at that place. The resident writes "A most extraordinary event has occurred here stranding and capture of the veritable sea serpent. in front of the Caledonian Hotel, Oban.
