She was only a governess in George Wilford’s house, and a nursery governess at that. A pretty, lady-like, quite little creature, whom his two morthcrlcss children dearly loved. Between you and me, dear reader, before their father had been home from his travels many months, he was in danger of following their example. Mrs. Vane saw that. She was a widow; handsome, haughty, poor, and with a pair of fine black eyes that were unusually keen and wideawake for all that concerned the wealthy widower. For he was her cousin, and she had kept house for him since his wife's death—two years ago—with the decided intention of ultimately and i»crmancntly supplying her place and consoling him for his bcmivcment. She watched him now with a clouded face as he sat at the oi>cn window, paying less attention to the morning paper in his hand than to the merry group in Ihc garden, whose silvery voices and happy laughter reached him where he sat-“iiow happy they seem, and how fond the children are of her!’’ he said at last, pursuing his own thoughts. “But wiiy does she always wear black? Do you know for whom she is in mourning, Helen?’' “Her mother, I believe,” Mrs. Vane answered with supremo indifference. “Slie is an orphan. Governesses generally arc orphans, it seems to me.” And she tried to quiet her own fears by reflecting: “It is only natural that he should take pleasure in watciiing his own children. Surely it can not be this girl ?” ButitAvas “this girl,” in spite of her. She thought she wouW put it to the test, and so went quietly out of the room and sent the housemaid to summon Lily Deane to her pre.sence. “You ai*c so skillful at this kind of work, Miss Deane,” she said, as she held up a piece of torn and costly lace before the blushing, fluttering girl. I slioiild bo glad if you would mend it as soon as possible.” And she looked with strong disfavor at the fluttering form and rosy blush. She had seen George Wilfoi-d accost the girl as she came in from the garden, and slie knew what the blushes meant. She made no remark, however, but when she went down again to the room Avhei'e she had left ber cousin she found him standing aimlessly in the inhklle of the room as it uncertain what to be about. “The garden has lost its attraction,” she thought, and her black eyes flashed. “This girl must be got rid of, and at once.” More easily said than done, however. The children loved Ihelr gentle friend and play fellow, ami their father made no secret of the pleasure her presence and sweet coinpanion-sltip afforded him. While as for Lilv—though she was “only a governess’’—it was plain that an unwonted scene of happiness made her blue eyes moro bright and her smiles more Irequent. She never thought of questioning why. The simple little soul basked in its atmosphere of love and joy, as birds and flowers do, and thought about the cause of it as little. The stately house had grown to be a bappy home to her. Was it since Mr. Wilfoi*d returned? Well, yes—everything Avas snroly pleasanter under the master’s sway. He Avas so good, so kind, so gentle to herself; so considerate toAvards everyone. Ah, but his wife must havt been a happy Avoman. Hoav sad that she should have died, and left her lovely babies, her dear husband And he, too—so young, scarcely thirty—snro-Iv his life was lonely. She Avondcrod liow Avould he ever— And at that thought she put up two little white hands to her face, that suddenly burned vivid crimson. “What is it to me ?” slie murmured, with an unconscious sigh. “But if he should, I suppose it Avould be Mrs. Vane. And I should haA'c to go. I could not slay then, although the children love me, and I—I love them so.” Tears dimmed her blue eyes suddenly. “After air, Avhat is it to me?” she sighed. “Only Ite is so good, so very good to me—Iioav can I choose but wisli him liappiucss?” And she stooped and kissed a red rosebud tliat she held, and Avhich he had giA'cn her. That instant a voice fell on her ear and a firm hand grasped lierarm. “Do you kiss the fioAvcr for its oavu sake,” asked the voice, “or for the giver’s ?” Poor Lilly started guiltily. “The—the giver, madamo ?” she faltered. “I do not understand-” “Mr. Wilford gave you that rose, I saAV him. Ho is mv betrothed husband. Miss Deane, I take you for a foolish, thouglitless girl, rather than a wicked or a heartless one. I have resolved to appeal to your sense of riglit—your honor. Mr. Wilford is engaged to mo. I loA^e him and will never give him up. His fancy for you can only result in your dishonor, for though you may steal his heart from me and make me Avrotched, you can not win his hand. That is engaged to me, and I avIH claim it.” Lily, with white face aud great dilated eyes, now suddenly, with one sharp cry of pain, fell down fainting at her enemy’s feet. The blow had been so sudden. With cruel, pitiless hand Mrs. Vane had ])laced her face to face Avith the secret of her own unconscious heart. 8ho kncAv, in that moment’s anguish, that she loved George Wilford, and that he was the promised husband of another. Farewell, love! Farewell, hope I Farewell, jieaeeful home, in whi h slie had found brief, deceitful happiness ! It seemed, at first, as if she had said fareAA’cll to life itself, as she lay, Avhitc and motionless at Mrs. Vane’s feet. She Avas such a slight girlish creature that that lady managed to lift her to the sofa without help, and was l>cnding over her and sprinkling Avater on her white face Avhen the blue eyes flew wide 0]>en again and consciousness returned. The pale checks grcAV crimson instantly, and she drew her little hands away and spread them over her face. “6h, madanie, Avhat must you think of me ?” she cried with a burst of jmus-sionate sorrow. “Oh, I must leave this place 1” Mrs. Vane’s black eyes flashed triumphantly. “I was sure you would see the necessity for that,” she said. “After what I have told yon, this is no place for you. You OAve it to your oavu 6elf-ro8]>ect to leave immediately. And to do you iustice, I must confess that iny cousin was not been free from hlainc. I haA'e heard.him make you idle, flattering speeches that might well turn a young girl’s head. But it is the way with men child. If a girl shoAVS her preference, as you have shoAvn yours, they Avill amuse thcm.selves at her expense—even the best of them. I hope you understand, iioAV, that no goo.1 could come of it.” Lily had risen from the sofa, trembling v'iolcntly. “1 did notsliow my preference unsought,” she said, Avith bitterly wounded pride. “I thought Mr. Wilford too good, too noble to trifle with a AA'oman, even though «he Avere onfy a governess. He gave me cause to think he cared for me; yet”-anxious to excuse and screen him—“yet that may only have been his kindness, and I have deceived myself. It certainly is so, since he is engaged to you. I have no wish to reproach him, only let me go aAvay at once. Sparo me the pain of meeting him again—this man Avhoni I thought the A'ery soul of honor, but Avho, it seems, cquld trifle Avith a frifiiullcss girl cA’cn while he Avas vowed to anotlier Avuinan. Oh, let me go at once!” Nothing could have suited Mrs. Vane so avoH. “I shall place no restraint upon you, my dear,’J she said. “I see tliat i can trust yoiir honor. But where will you go?” Not that she cared at all, except as a matter of precaution. “To London. I have money enough to live until I find another situation.” “And I Avill interest myself to get you one. Yon shall find a warm friend in me, be sure of iL Y'ou and 1, dear, have not wronged each other.” And the deceitful AVoman actually pressed a kiss on the pale check of the girl Avliose life’s happiness she Avas plotting to destroy. For Mrs. Vane Avas in the best of humors, her plans having succeeded so Avell. Her victim had offered no resistance, and expressed no doubts. “And only let me get her out of the way,’’ she thouglit, “he will forget her, and the lielil will be clear before me.” So Lily packed her one little trunk, proparhig to leave by the 5 o’clock train that same evening. Mr. Wilford had said that he should not he liomc that night, and the poor girl’s one anxiety now Avas to leave Avithuut again seeing him. So, Avhei) her preparations were, done, she Stoic doAvn the garden to bid the place Avhcrcshe had dreamed such happy dreams a last good-bye. It Avas yet hut 3 o’clock. As she stood near the ro.se bushes, brushing aAvay the fast-coming tears. Mrs. Vane joined her hurriedly. There Avas a look ot alarm npouh<vr face. “MissDcauc,” she said, “my cousin is roturning. I saAv him from my windoAV slowly riding up the lane. You must not meet him. Yon can slip out by the back way as he enters at the front. You can walk to the station-it is not more than a mile.” (It was more than tAvo miles, but Mrs, Vane was not trammeled by any painful reverence for the truth). “Here is your money, and to-mori*OAV I Avill semi your tnink. Will you do this, or’—with a l<»ok of insulting suspicion—“will you stay and try to steal from me my husband ?” The young girl’s face flushed, and she threw hack her head Avilh a proud gesture. “You insult me, madamc,” she said with dignity. “I have shoAvn no inclination to do you Avrong.” Then she took her Avagcs from her enemy’s hand, and hastened aAvay to the house, Mrs. Vane following her. “Hasten!” she cried, as the door bell sounded. “For heaven’s sake go —and quickly.” Lily i)au^ a moment in surprise. “If he is engaged to her,’ she thought, “Avhv does she fear me so? Why is she so anxious to be rid of me? HaA’c I been deceiA'cd? Surely it is easier to bdieve in her falsehood than in his. I will not go.” She flung her hat aside. “And yet upon what pretext could I stay?” she mused sadly. “I am discharged and paid. And she said I betrayed my feelings to him—oh 1”* the quick blush of shame crimsoned her fair young face—“oh, let me go at once I” And “at once” she fled. Little Annie Wilford was playing by the garden gate. She caught her in her arms and kissed her. “Good-by, little darling,” she cried, and set her down again. Next minute the gate swung to and the governess had gone. * * »    « * * “Without an explanation,” Mr. Wilford said. “I can not understand it, Helen. Surely she told you why ?” “Something about a lover, I believe,” said Mrs. Vane, indiflerently. “You knoAV she was a pretty girl, and young. Really I did not knoAV she Avas going until half an hour beforo she left.” Mr. Wilford turned away with a clouded broAV and sauntered into the garden. The girl’s disa])pcarance affected him more than he cared to confess to Mrs. Vane. “Icould have sworn she cared for me,” he muttered, “and all the Avhile she AA’us engaged to some fellow. This night I should ha\'e asked her to be my Avife. Curse such false coquettes!” and he stumbled on souiething oii the grass. “Hello! what’s this?” Annie, his own little live-year-old Annie, seemingly quite brokenhearted and in tears. “Oh, papa,” she sobbed on seeing him, “She’s don. Miss Lilly’s don.” He took the little one into his arms and soothed her. “WliydidMiss Lilly go, Annie?’’ he said. “Auntie Helen did scold her, papa, tause she tissed de little fower you dave her. I heard her. And she tissed me, and tried—and she’s don.” Meantime M:*s. Vane, in her rival’s empty room, was rejoicing over her departure. “The game is in ray own hands noAV,” she thought, “and I shall Avin the prize.” The sound of a horse’s hoofs under her AvindoAV startled her. She sprang to ascertain the cause, and fell hack as if she had received a blow. George Wilford Avas riding away to the station at full speed. “lie suspects me. He will find her and learn all,” she thought, and sat down, conquered and despairiifg. The game was lost indeed. A letter from her cousin appris^ her that he had taken Lily to T.«ii«on, and there married her. He i*eque|fted Airs. Vane to' Uftv® Hto house befpre he brenght his young bride home. ¡She obeyed, too humbled and defeated to utter a complaint, and Lily came back to be mistress and queen of the home Avhere slie had once been only a. governess. A (icorKla Episode. JRome K»a.) Courier.] A De Soto father was caught in a most embarrassing predicament the other day, Avhen his wife presented him witli tAvins. One of the little new comers had been expected and arrangements made fur his reception, but ncitlicr the father nor inotlicr had anticipated the intentions of the other little one, and tieace had made no preparations for her reception. Clothes had only been provided for one, therefore the amazed embarrassment ot the paterfamilias when the little girl put in an ap]>cnrance immediately after the arrival of the young man can ne better imagined than described. Recovering from his astonishment, the father and his fi’iends Avent promptly to Avork to extend the young lady the courtesies tluc her sex.

P«i„, In t^TTllsÍL Khsu-mstlsui, S5c. Druggists sr    ” ÍBoston Correspondence Chicago News.] To get at the character aud standing of a public man go to his own town or city and associate with tlic people who hav’c grown with him ftoin infancy to a rijie manliood. Go to Waltham and vou will find that no man stands higher in the esteem ot tlic people than General Banks. Not the remotest suspicion of scandal attaches to his honored name, and today he is virtually as i>oor as when he entered ui>on a public career nearly forty years ago. Banks is cniinently a self-made man. His father was a carpenter in poor circumstances, unable to give his children an extended education. At a tender age Banks was set to work in the cotton mill in the town, which was the first establishment in the country to introduce the power looms, and which is still in existence to-day, though greatly enlarged anti exteiuted. Young Hanks, however, Avas fired Avith extraordinary ambition. He Avas bound to educate himself, and all his spare time he spent Avith his books. When hardly out of his teens he manifested a taste for oratory, and gave evidence of his inherent abilities as a speaker and presiding oflifcr Avliile otflciating as president of a young men’s debating society. In Hank’s youth there Avas no railroad communication betAveeiiWal-fham and Bostqn,and travel by the old fashioned eiago eoacli was laborious and expensive. Possessed alike of a robust constitution and an ambition to hoar and see the leading men of the time, he not infrequently Avalkcd to Boston and hack, after a hard day’s Avork in the mill, to hear some great orator or Icctnrer. All the Avhilc he improved each fleeting moment, and when he Avas fairly luuiichcd upon his life’s career his education was fully as complete as if he liad pursued a classical course in college, and he Avas able not only to demonstrate his ability to converse fluently in the lan-gnoges, but to shoAV his knowledge of affairs of the nation and of the Avorld. Hanks’ earlier friends predicted a bright career for him IIIB ^voico most vaTuciT'^ gifts nature had bestowed upou him, was almost sutfl-cient to bring him reuown upou the rostrum. Rich, sonorons, and yet clear in its tones then, as it is to-day, his fellow-toAvnsmcn was fairly carried away with enthusiasm every tliiic he spoke. Natural gifts sometimes cover up a su|)erflcial interior, hut not so in the case uf Hanks. And yet few mou in the ranks of public orators and speakers are blessed with greater natural gifts tiian he. He Avas ever a magnetic man. In addition to his inag-uiflceut voice his personalty was attractive. As straight as an Indian, his Avcll-knit frame proclaimed ¡lerfect health and a robust manhood, Avhilc his finely shajied head Avell set off his broad, square shoulders. To-day, though Hanks is close on to seventy years of age, his voice is as sonorous and his form is as erect us Aviien he made his debut on the rostniin. His iiair is as Avhite as tlie driven siioav, but the mustache and imperial which he wears makes him look fully a dozen years younger than he really is. The natural ease and grace of the gestures aud movcincuts uf the man are among the most noticeable of his characteristics. General Hanks and his family liv'c in quiet sim|>licity in the family'maii-sion on upper Alain street in Waltham, the broad higliAvay which runs from Boston to Concord and the small villages beyond. The old town is rich in a Avcalth of natural scciierv, and but few places in Alassachusctts exceed it ill that respect. The plain, old-fashioned mansion of (icneral Hanks stands in one of the loveliest spots in the toAvii. Directly from the estate rises Alount I*rosi>ect, 5(X) feet above the level of the sea, the highest peak between Boston and the Wauchusett Mountains. Stately elms shade the mansion and cast their shadow upon the broad lawn, but the hou.si!, its fur-niftliing, the stable, and everything about the estate is entirely in kce])iug with the modest and iinassuiniiig character of the occupants. They are nothing for dispKay, and the team which brings tlie General home fiAim the railroad station is almost as dilapidated in ajipcarancc as the A'erifuble ono-htrse shay. It is safe to say that no people Avho have trodilen the higher Avalks of life are 80 popular Avith their townspeople, pRi ticiilarly those of a hnmhle sphere, as the Hanks family. The suiik! gra-ciou'i, natnrni courtesy Avhich dislin-gnlshes their bearing in the higher social circles marks their ¡ntereonr.sc with the common people who liave felt a Just jnide in their advaiiccnient and distinction. Ii is the same iioav as it was when General Hunks Avas Speaker of the National House of Representatives, or Avhon ho occupied the honorable positiou of Governor of Alassachusctts. The humblest citizen can approach Gen. Hanks with confidence or a considerate, gentlemanly reception. His memory of faces and persons is remarkable, and it is not in his nature to pass even the merest acquaiutauce the nows gently, so I said: ‘To tell brrelit career tor Ititn as an the truth, I’cte run toul of a varuiiut "iff vi)iey afoff, m.e nr AIL ttpa WaAhüftVW^  ........... rrr»**    —    i    -    j    »    -    J    varmint in Idaho that can chew I’cie,’ says she. Then I .said; ‘That’s so; Pete wasn’t chewed. He got caught in a Iand-.slidc and Avas smashed flatter’ii a naiicako.’ ‘Jolin HigcIoAV,’ says she, rolling up her sleeves, T’ll smash yon flatter’ii a pancake if you say that there again.’ My heart Avent out to the poor Avomaii, but I dodged back a couple of rods to got out of reach. 'I’heu I says: ‘Would a sight of the corpse convince you, madam ?’ and she said it would. 8o we carried Pete in, and when she saw him she lammed ino up agin the Avail and yelled: ‘You miserable coyote, why didn’t you tell me the ¡KiAvdcr house had busted!’ I didn’t go to the buryin’, and it’s the last time ril ever break the news toa widdcr.’” without a pleasant word of greeting. Like all public men Avith a generous, sympathetic heart, he is sometimes ini])osed iiimau, and his sympathies are once in uAvhile misplaced. Everything pertaining to the Avellfarc of his native toAvn is dear to Gen. Hanks, and he is and ever has been foremost in CA’ery moA’cmont looking to its iiiiprovcinent and bcnoflt. There hasn’t been a toAvn meeting held for years that hasn’t had the benefit of hi.s coun.sel and ex])crionce, and Avhilo as an orator he lacks much of the thrilling eloquence Avhich held audiences spell-bound Avhcn he Avas in his prime, his fine personal presence and the high re«i)ect in Avhich l»c is held insure him a respectful hearing. Should he consent to run, and if his prciscnt duties as United States Alar-shal permit, it is safe to predict that he Avill be elected the first Alayor of Waltham by a nearly iinainmoiis vote. I'he same |K)pularity Avhich has attended him in his pii'hlic life attends him in liis private life in Waltham, and he could have any gift it is in the poAver of his IcIIoAv-toAViismen to be stOAV. In social affairs he and his family are alike prominent, and many a dance is led off by General Hanks with his Avife or daughter as a partner.
