It in your feeble rickety Brner Tomt expire of the first unsavoury Mesa of earthly Pottage. The Niess dinner was Over. There had been some quizzing on the subject of miss can Limont and of the ghost but it was nil evidently at random and they had no idea How very near the wind they were going on either track. Ingram and his friends kept their own counsel and after dinner met by appointment at i r. Hole Omlie a i quarters to finish the plan of Ali eur Campaign against the Midnight forager of orderly books. they Lead agreed us it a selected a number of picked men on whose secrecy mid Fidelity they could rely win were to keep watch and Ward duly relieved by night and Day without making any noise about it. To that if the ghost should return clothed in his a a vesture of decay a to the scene or his former operations lie would be pretty sure to be Laid by the Heel. The Oill cers themselves also agreed to mount guard by turn in the Captain a chamber to that it should never be without a sleepless Eye on the look out. Arrangements were made that the sentinels and their officers should rendezvous quietly in the neighbourhood at a Small inn As if by Accident and the men lie shown their let of to of observation without any Bustle to attract notice. John and orderly Williams being left in Garrison of the Launt de building until it was properly in vested. Everything happened at the time and in the order that it should mid the arrange cuu were carried into of Lect with military precision. One Man walked up and Down the Street with injunctions never to lose sight of the front of the House. The three other sides were in charge of three Oiler trusty men so placed that no approach could be Mude to the Bouse on either Side without instant detection. A guard was also placed on each floor of the House on the la Side although it Lead been most thoroughly seach cd. In Advance in every Corner. It seemed a if the Prince of the Power of the air Ulona approaching through his own Peculiar principality could obtain Entrance unobserved. And so they rested on their arms. In the mean time the Winter s Sun made haste to put an end to the Short Day and the time arrived for the great Sleigh ing party to rendezvous in the North Square. Captain Ingram s Graceful Little Sleigh contrasting curiously with his Stout cob was at the door and lie was so it Cully drawn up in front of or. Clairmont a mansion awaiting the pleasure of it fair mistress. Hite stunt no eared breathing a fresh Sumiller upon the Check of Winter anti yet looking like ills youngest daughter so , and to top Peter and lie cloaked was site.

The Moon would Crohn pm he a More appropriate hut the suit in a More splendid so let it stand. Hic was soon by the Side of in Grain and they were rapidly careering away toward Trio North hopi Are. A very few minutes brought he m o the Row Teim where they found a Large company of Hie Ulua of the Garrison and the town a people preparing for a merry scamper round the town there were Large sleighs drawn by two and some by four horses containing in Riley which like the family arty of the Glenr of Wakefield if they did not have a great Deal of wit they Lead a great Deal of laughing which answered the purpose Ustah Well. There were not wanting modest single sleighs like hint conveying our hero und heroine which if not As Well a dust de for frolic As their larger companions were better calculated for sentiment and for Lar Tutonu. After the usual time Luid bet ii wasted in waiting for loiter ers and adjust lug where every one should go the procession get Forward in due order the in rec Sleigh taking the lend und the More a pretending vehicles follow Ugin due suite halon. Aliat Klinl a merry jingling of bolls and ringing of laughter resounded through the streets of Toston us the horse s dashed through them making the Earth resound with their trend. It was a sound of merriment that jarred Grant singly Upun the cars of Many in unwilling listener separated by the Slege from moved heart unit suffering perhaps from cold in the depth of that dreadful Winter or with hunger within the sound of the revelry of their oppressors.

A a hut Here we Are at the Royal tavern Quot he exclaimed As they drove into Doek Himie. Und Drew up at the inn when it was proposed to close their cd it edition. A now Clear your brow and re Iuler your eyes lest Hie go rim put things and it Copic too there is a time of life when three a lays seem to lie an Ull sufi Cicil eternity a Mui my Helen was happily not a ast thut blessed period. To she soon dismissed the unpleasant tilling she Hud just Henril from her mind and endeavoured to mingle in the Gai ties of the Honl tavern. The scene wus not a very magnificent one to be sure but the company wus us Guy us if it Hud been a Royal Palace. The mulled wine was beyond Praise. The floor of the Large parlor wus swept Ami a Noble fire diffused Light anti heal through the room. They Hud not a regimental they and Hie night More hut the to Idle of a musical negro. Longing to Hie House wus sufficient to set them All Lancing and flirting. And what could his majesty s own bund itself do More at a proper time in excellent supper was served la the dining room Nono of your it i Edicular Runnin Atlon a but a Good regular sit Down support All hot from the spit and served if not with Mclroy Jio Lituri magnificence yet at be amp it with provincial plenty. Ample Justice was done to the viands and the port wine and the everlasting punch were not neglected. After the soured rage of hunger wus appeased the coir Jominy returned to the great parlor and resumed their Gai ties which were protracted until a late hour. Hueh were some of the sell emos to which the measured inhabitants of tie town resorted to hmju1 away some of to Weir weary hours. And very Good schemes they were in my opinion. I do not know Bow it was but the Garrison gossips of whom Ingram had War cd Helen remarked that he was not As devoted to her As usual. From thin the they augured with the sagacity of to Weir tribe that he was inclined to lie Otto from the fair Taniou. Now / formed a directly opposite opinion from Trio circumstance. I Tun too old a Bird to be chaffed 111 this Way. I know however that the Young lovers compared notes of Flint they heard and overheard on the subject As they drove Home and that they were entirely satisfied with the Suo cents of the enemy. What could have made them dissatisfied with it y on arriving at his quarters Ingram found every thing ready but no ghost As yet. Or. Holcombe who much preferred a comfortable arts chair a ple und a Tankard of punch Over against a rousing lire to All the Sleigh ing parties hint Ever manufactured pleasure out of cold and discomfort bad volunteered to mount guard for Trio first evening in the room. He protested however that All Lead been quiet and not so much of a ghost stirring us would make the candles Burn Blue. He and Ingram sat up till near morning and then Lay Down alternately for an hour or two but All was still. A a not a mouse they and their labor for their Minim Liat night. Huh they were not discouraged in heir Campaign against Hie Powers of darkness by this withdrawal of the enemy. They still me cd Tomt they would have a Brush with him yet. In this Faith they renewed to Weir arrangements for tho next Day carefully them so can of Iausly that Tipiere should lie no ground of suspicion Given to the world around hint there was anything extraordinary a going on. The allies met after breakfast to talk Over the matter and decide whose turn should be Hie next to face tic enemy. Major Ferguson. In a right of seniority of rank received the privilege. The men who were on guard during the night were examined hut they maintained Tomt there was nothing that could lie into a suspicious cd Rutn Lati be Ulm and fallen under to Weir observation. Renewed charges of secrecy were Given and exchanged not Only for fear of the ghosts getting wind of the Coth piracy against him but lost the laugh it the Nicks Tuple might he turned against them. Fercy wus curious to lieu Hie result of lie night s Cam Nign when the adjutant waited upon him for orders and gave his approval of the Stew taken and encouraged them to next week. A Bride s outfit in Germany. The bridal outfit furnished by the Bride s Jar evils consists chiefly of Linen Shihi household and my Linen generally sufficient to Losta lifetime and Ndu fed to the rank and Cuns of the Bride. Thus the Rich Mother buys but is int and finest in Trio shop the less Rich one buys up gradually years before the occasion Good Strong household Linen carefully kept in Lavender and Cut up und sewed by Trio girl ionic of when her marriage la settled. The poorer classes do the same in gunning utmost it tic birth of the girl and the peasant woman grows or buys her flux spins it Liera Elf and lays by a provision of Strong Linen durable us Suil cloth for her daughter. Is her Mother and grandmother did before her. The Pride of a German woman no mutter what rank is in her Hnin Prev a und it is exhibited to friends und discussed with gossips As one of tic chief subjects of a female conversation. It a Pix a rarely that any will fitted out woman has to add Uny material store to her treasure. The jewelry is invariably the present of the bridegroom. The wedding dress is likewise graduated. From the serviceable Hluck silk of the Artisan wife it ascends through All slides of usefulness Brown dark Blue Light Gray to the simple White inf Lela and the costly White moire antique. He Side this the prudent a a Middle class Quot Mother carefully nuts into a Little purse the piece of Gold provided by Trio a a governor for another pretty gives it to the Bride for by und Bye when it is wanted when the wedding clothes Are soiled and the Young Matron does not wish to Wear the old fashioned things of her bridal Day. The Wedd Itig gift we Are assured give Rise occasionally a it some Little grumbling but even these Are managed in the same methodical styles. The first principle is Tomt the gifts Are for the Quot Young household a and not for the Young lady. A Bor dangly they Are invariably adapted to the rank station and Means of the Young couple and arranged on a pre concerted plan so that duplicates Are Impo sible yet every givers Means and individual tastes Are duly regarded.
