A Yuuug Ihule'H Kx|tcrience. [Atchison Ulobe.l At Kansas City two gcntlomon mil A lady boarilcil a Missotiii Pacific train, anil liKik a double scat in the roar of tlio last coacli.

It was not long liefure the lady, who was u tine-looking,neiilly-dressiHl [mt-iim,iN'gunlookiiigul liim,oecuiiiloually winking and smiling. The young man turned rod in tho face, and was in the act of leaving Ibe scat, when she llirew her arms about bis neck, and deelaiTd In a voice loud enough to be licaiil u block tliat lie was the only iM’iMin sliu ever loved. The two men, wlio wore seated oiipo^lle, succeeded iu caliiiiug tlie woman, and tlicu explained that slio was crnry, and being taken tu Dr. Catlett's asylum in 81. Jusopb. Tho young man iinniediatcly went into tlio iinuking car. I was a man ot 30, turned; old enough aud steady enough to know my own mind, surely. I had always prided myself upon a certain stc.adi-ncfis of purjiosc and firmness of resolution, which I called ‘‘strength of character.” I believed that I had no part nor share in the proverbial fickleness of my sex, and when my inclinations and judgment approached each other in the selection of my partner for life I never doubted but that my choice was fixed and settled once for all. She was a gentle, loving ci-eature; not so pretty as good, but endeared for her many amiable qualities to all who knew * her. Not veiy youug either. WMiat does a staid’ man of 30 want with a foolish, trifling girl. Milly was tivc-and-twenty, probably, and I thought that the west satisfactory age [lossible. • I was fui-cniau in a large factory where many girls aud women are employed. aud Milly Gi*ay was the “matron” who had charge of them. She earned a good salary. I was a prudent man, aud I am net sure but what that coirsideration had full weight with me. Not that I would have hesitated about marrying Milly anyway, but it is good, surely, for a workingman to liavc a wife wlio can bo innctically a helpmate to him. People fancied sho had a little money biid by, but I knew better. Not imt what sho could have had, having worked in the factory steadily those ten years and earned a good deal; but she had told me of the use to W'liich she Iiad put her earnings. They had gone to educate her half-sist<»r, May Ellis. “Mol lier left her to my care,” she said, ‘‘at only six years old. I am nine years her senior, and I have been lo bcr a second mother. Her beauty —she is lovely, (ieorge—bas bcim my coustaiii pleasure and jiride, and her education iias formed my one ambition and care. Until I knew you, dear,”—she nestled shyly to iny side as we w’alked along—“I liad never known a love so strong as my lox’efor May. I am sure that when you see her you will acknowledge she is something to 1)0 proud of.” I thought the little woman who had so generously devoted Jier life to this young girl w^is much more to bo admired aud valued. I drcxv her little hand—somewdiat hrow^ncd and hanlciied by its yeti-s of toil—more closely xvithiu my arms, and pressed it tenderly. ‘•I am pmud of you!” I told her. “Merc beauty or cvlucation can never for a moment hold comparison xvith natural goovluess like yours. I would not change my little, sober Miliv for the brightest beauty in the w orld!” Heaven help us t I meant it then, cvei*y wonl, and supposed that I should never change! Her soft eves brightened as I spoke. “I am glad you love me so,” -she said, “I thank God for it 1” ‘•And you Milly—^you love me as dearly As dearly.” Her tones lhrille<l with a new Intensity, her quiet features glowed .and flushed into a new and sudden loveliness. “I love you dearer than mv life 1 I am not eloquent and educate(^,Gcorge, aud—aud I think I feel too deeply to talk about it. Uuttliouglil seem to you quiut aud shy aud dull under it all, all the time my heart speaks, and it suvs, T love vuu dearer than my life!’” I was delighted with her little innocent outburst I supimscd it flattered my vanity, for 1 raallzed fully how luiicli it meant fi-om one wlio was rulbcr reticent and reserved; she liad looked so pretty, too, when her cliceks flusheil andher eyes sparkled —I liked to think that I could call this glow of la'aiity into life. “She will look so always when she is a loved and happy wife,” I thought, and I iM'gati to feel that 1 was raally aud truly in love with lier. Alas! jioorMlIlyl May Elis w as now sixteen, and had finished her time at school. Miily had talked of giving her another year, but 1 opiioHcd that earnestly. “Whall would she sacrifice me, as xvell as herself, to May ?” Aud so ilio gentle creature yielded to my wish— w hich was the yuuiig girl's also-for she wrote that her education xvas quite suflb'ieiit now to ciiubic her to get her own living aud rallevo her sister of the burden she had boruo so lung aud lovingly. “A very praper lentlineiit,” I do-clarod appt'uvingly, and some of tlio unjust prejudice which I had cou- girl cervcd against tho unconscious began tu pass away from my mind. It was settled tliat May should come home for the holidays, aud as soon*Rs she could set lire a ihiníiIoii as a guv eritcMs, Milly aud 1 should be marrictl. Alas, those holidays! bho came— the brightest, the lovellesl creature that ever my imagliiulluii had con fcivctl of, and before she had been in Time IIH« nIll'll iK'uplu initt to •iiflrr with cniil; nnw a iMittlu ul Dr. iliiU's Cutigh biriqi cures thv.>in. the liotihc one xvock 1 had learned what It was to love. Did Milly susiicrt a change In me? I coubl not tell. Grave aud quiet always, I saw no dlllcrcticc iu her, cx-ce[it that she grew (jtilctcr and mora pale, and that might l>e thy efi'cct of the close, Muiiiuicr xveather. 1 hoped so, I prlictl and csteetueil my gentle love no less, because 1 bail Icuriied to love her sUtcr morC| aud my cou- scicnco reproached me constantly with the memory of those simple tender wotxls; “I love you dearer than my life.” To have won such love and then to cast it away—oh, it xvould be villainous! No, let passion urge me as it might, I rcso'ved to be true to my obligations and my lionor. I can not tell hoxv my resolution miglit have served if May had tempted or encouraged mo to a diflerant course; but the girl gave me no hoi>e —none. She knew that I loved her, oh, I was sure of that I And I dared to think, to hojie, to fear that she loved me; some subtle intelligence passed between our hearts and souls and so informed them; but by neither of us was the knowledge confirmed by either look or word. And a change had come upon all those. Something intangible—ashatlc —a secret care, hidden, suspected, but unshared; there was a certain relief, in spite of the quick paag of loss aiid< sorrow, in tlie intelligence that May gave us suddenly one morning—she had succeeded in obtaining a position and was going away at once. No one opposed it. For a moment some recolleotion of noble women who had sacriflced themselves and their own hearts for the sake of these they loved flashed through my mind. 1 thought: “Must we two suffer to secura the peace of one ?” I put the ungenerous thought aside-ashamed of it. Why should the time and loyal heart be sacrificed to the fickle one that could not be leal and true ? And besides, it may be that Milly docs not dream of my falsehood, I thought; for I believe I had kept my secrat well. AVhatever she dreamt of or whatever she knew she made no sign. Her pale check xvhitciu'd another shade w bile May w’as R[>eaking, and her eye sliot one swift glance from the girl to me but said notbing, and it was understood that May sliould go. Tiirough the few days that remained before her departure I lix-^cd like one in a dream. To the last it seemed to me that something xvould inter]>osc to detain her; that Milly would s]>eak—would sacrifice herwlf, oven at the last, to both of us. But no—when the hour of parting came 1 realized that all such hope was vain— God forgive me I Iu tliat hour I almost hated Milly. I put the girl into tlic cars, and in that last moment heart spoke to heart. “Good-bye,” I said, scarce knoxving what I said. “God bless you, Ibvc, and pity mo I” “And help you,” she whisperad, “to do your duty I Oh, George, be goo<l to her, slie is herself so good—aud indeed she loves you—dearer than her lifer Thera was a curious smile on Miily’s pale, sad face, aud a strange light ill her eyes, as I rejoined her. “8ho is a good and noble girl,” she said, mora to herself than me, 1 thought—“and I love hei‘—ah, w4fit a xvliile—as I love you ; you will both know, some day, how well 1” That day came all too soon. Three weeks had passed since May’s departure, aud 1 had quite made up my iniud to shrink no longer from the fiilfilliiiciit of my pledge, so I asked Milly to fix upon our wedding day. Her face fiiislied crinisun first, and then turned pale, and a look of pain dawned in her eyes. “Not yet,” slie said. “Be patient a little longer yet,” andtlicnsliu prasscd licr hands upon her breast and half xvhisi>ered—“give mo only a little longer timer I did not urge her, why should I? I believed that slic saw the change in iny feelings and was pained by it. I grieved that this should be so, but xvhat could Ido? Wo were all doomed to suflfer. It was at noon-time in the factor}', tliat I asked her—partly on tlio spur of the moment, partly liecauso I could l)c spared tho hyiiocrisy of any tender passages there. I went baek to my xvork. Wo used steam, of course. To this hour I don’t know what went wrong. Hud-deiily tliera was an cxjilosiou, an awful noise, a rush, a piereiiig cry, and a wuman flung licrsclf befoiv me, throwing her dress, her hair, her a)iixin, I know not what, about my neck and face, and then 1 knew iiu more fur many hours. When I recovered cousciousness 1 fouiiil myself uninjured, save by the shock, but Milly—my poor, geiieraus, wronged love—Milly wa» dying. 8ho liad thrown liorself beloraiiie, sercciiiiig mo from the smoke uud steam. Hlio was bruiseil, frusbed, scalded almost past rccogiiitioii, only the gentle eyes, full of mingled agony and love, looked up into my face, iiii-ciiunged. “Don’t cry,” «be wIilsiM'rad, as I knelt beside her bed in all the iiilsery uf remorse and helt-reiiroaeli. “It l^ hO mueli better tbiis. I am m> glad to liave It thus, dear. It’s unly life Ibal I am losing now. Hud 1 lived longer 1 sliuulil luivu lost you, and I luved you dearer (liaii iny lifb.’' Maj' bad been sent for.

I knew you loved, but tliat yon wcra guod and true tu me. But 1 should have been unhappy, I confess, and it is much better now. Think of me sometimes xvhen I am gone. I die happily—liapiiily for your sake, whom I loved dearer than my life.” - - Her faint voice ceased, her sweet eyes closed. Her pain and grief were over. My little, gentle, generous love had passed from earth to heaven. Years passed ere May and I forgot that mournful hour, and xvhen at last we married, as was Milly’s wish, a shade of fond regret was cast, even on our wedded happiness, by the memory of the devoted, tender girl wlio had loved me so much dearer than her life.—[English Magazine. A Letter from Washington. [Leienre Hour.] The following letter is ukca from an old Edinburgh Evening Courant, dated September 9,1786.

Brilliant Frenchmen of the Empire Who Collapsetl. [New Orleans Picayune.] Sadness overwhelms one as memory recalls the tale of the persons who figured most brilliantly in the day of the empire. Napoleon III.’s death is familiar. You have present his sou’s fate. Duke de Persigy fell into a rapid decline tho hour'the last gun was fired at Sedan; Barocho died broken-hearted, disconsolate for the loss of his eldest son, killed at Bour-gct, and for the ruin of tho empire; Canrobert still lives, but his mind is ever drowned fatliouis deep in the green poison, absiiitlic; one of the most hrillinnt chamberlains (his name I caa not iruniediateJy recall) blew out his brains #n hearing a warrant for his arrest as a felon was about t# be served; De- Morny went •ut bcfera tbe last #f life’s meridian, exhausted by lieeatiausaess; AcJiille FouMi was found dead iu bed, pei-eoned by nicetine; his eldest son, an reaching his inaterity, came into pos-sessien ef $3,000,669, s« well invested they yielded him ware than $180,006 a year, principal and interest have l«ag since melted inta thin air; master M in the lunatic asyhini; Fould’s right liand man and contldeiitial scc-irtary in all his rinblic ofiiccs was Mens. Pelletier; Foiild knew no secret hidden from Pelletier; soon after tho cinpira fell, it became iiccctu*arv to put Pelletiw in a mad house, and to give him tlic most uneducated nurses to be bad, for his frenzy lay in telling all the secrets be knew; ignorance heard bis drivel and found it Greek; had it reached educated ears, families and grave interests had been coinpro-iiiised. Dr. Uainpbell, tlic favorite physician of the Empress, as soouas the ein|)ire fell, became—which ?i<liotor lunatic? Very few iieoplc knew, for the last days of his life are shrouded in im-{MMietrablo mystery; liis i»aitner, Sir Joseph Ollille, was killed by the same shaft which was fatal lo the Duke d« Morny; they had bccu intimate triemls; he was U»** Duke’s [ihysiciaii; they were partners in many sjiecula-tioHS, wliich became worthless by that death, for French physicians hated him because of his great success, so Ollifle, though the very pictuio of licalth. langnislicd and died w hile still in life’s meridian. Bciilc, whose wish (aud ho was most ambitious) was gratified as soon as formed, buried ills dagger in his heart.

The new warship, which is tlic second of llic kind that has been built at Kiel (three, I think, have been constructed at Stettin) rejoices in the name of the Nan Sliuin, or “Blessing of tlie Soulli,” as its twin si.stcr from the same slocks is called the Nan Tldn, or “Ornament of tlui South.” Its water-line length is 77 meters (total ditto being 81), its greatest braadtli 11.5 meters. dc[)tJi of bold 7.125, dis-lilaccmcut 2,200 ton*, and draught 5.5 meters. The sliip in all its parts has been made of (jlerniaii steel, according to tho rules of tlio (ierman Lloyd’s, rigged as a bark, ami armed wilb two Annslrong guns of 21 centimetre and eight of 12 eeiitiiiictro calibre. It is also provided xvitli several mitrailleuses to xvard off toiqa'do boats, while oil deck it carries eight boats, including one torpedo boat and two launches driven by two horizontal comjioiiiid engines. It has an iiidi-catctl horse [Kiwer of 2,400, ami is ex-pectetl to make from 14j;¿ to 15 knots, llofli the “Blessing” and tlic “Ornament of the South” must he completely ready before tlic middle of March, t’hougli wliat is to be done with tliern and their Stettin sisters after that Heaven only knows. By sonic it is shrewdly suspected that in the matter of iroii-clads the Cliinesc Govcru-meiit is like the bale okl lady wlio had an iiisiqierablc weakness for bargains of all kinds, ami could not resist the purchase even of a wooden leg if she got it cheap. Hancock ami His P.mnds.
