It was one of the suburbs of the large town of Ij ^ a country place, not near enough to the city to have eacrificed the oaks and elms that guarded its old rose-covered homes ; homes clasped and held by vines and creepers, that seemed like loving hands joining them one to another. It looked a happy place, yet it, too, felt the worm of care; a w'orni that ate its slow w’ay deeper every year. It was a very Isle of Woman. Every mother was blessed wilii daiigbter.s, and when one Avas proud enonyli to call a son lier ow n. she was the center of the eager attention of every other hopeful miitlier in the cunnnnnity. On this very afternoon six women confideil their maternal woes to a svmpatlietic listener, kindly AVidow Hunt. She liad ever been a inatcli-inaker; now she Avas in her element. There Avas tea, of course; that also Avas lier element. Slic sat hack in her chair A\’ith her dear, old cheeks a little flushed Avifh excitement; Avith lier dear bright eyes a little brighter Avith anticipation; Avilh her every dear, fat cuiwe sjicaking of bciicvolcnco. Her cap trembled a little as she said: “I have a ne|)liCAV.” A eommoiipiacc phrase enough, but fnll-ladcn with .meaning to six Avait-iiig hearts. One might fear that a feeling of rivalry Avould instantaneously take root and flourish; but did not each mother know her oflspring to be in-coininuable? “Yes; I have a nephcAV, a noble felloAV and mv faA'orite. I Avill Avritc to him this evening and ask him to visit me.” Tliere Avas ontAvard bustle and eon-fnsioi:, but iinvard calm, as the Avisli-ful matrons now arose to take their leave. AVe have heard of hearts tied being up'in young girls’ bonnet strings. That is easy to imagine; a SAvect,young face Avitli rosy lips and sparkling ca cs, smiling npAvard at some Ioac lorn SAvain, knotting Avitli nimble (ingcrs her dainty nhlions; how possible to tangle in a Avllling heart I As these hard ami toil Avorn fingers tied beneath chins no longer flnslied with youth, their ribbons, they fastened with them greater hoiies and brighter visions, being less rare, than CA’cr youthful fingers did. Perhaps the hopes Avill fly and the visions tade as quickly as the light knot can be undone. AVhcn slic Avas alone AA’idoAV Hunt put on licr glasses, lit her study lamp, and arranged her front hair as if she Avcrc (ioiiig to speak to a man instead of Avritc to one.    >j Her paper at hand, she traced in her pointed, old-fasldoned writing; My Dear E<;heut—In your last letter you say to me that you arc tiroii. I remember hoAV yon Avonld raise your little face to mine, and tell me you were tired twenty years ago. Then yon Avonld lay your motherless head upon my breast and rest. Plome to me noAv and rest, dear. AVith a heart full of aifection, I am, yonr loving aunt,    Jessica    Hunt. Wlio will not rcA’crc the tears that fell from the gentle eyes, as much as poet ever cherished the glistening drops of his (>hloe or his Doris ? Tavo days later an answer came: Dear Auxt Jessy—Thank you for A4)iir never failing goodness. I Avould like to see you, hut I can not leave my three friends, Avho have never left me. I Avill try to run doAvn later in the season for a day or íaa^o. Lovingly, yonr nephcAA^    EtntEitx    Hunt. Noav, if Mrs. Hunt Avas fat, she Avas also ref olute, so she immediately telegraphed: “Conic at once and bring yonr friends. Room enough for all." Then the little house Avas put in order; notlhat it was at all necessary, but to a Avoman the very name company prompts a general scouring and looking after of corners and crevices. And Averen’t her biscuits the lightest ever made? And her sponge cakes and cookies? AVcrc this a drama the center stage door Avould be opened wide, and a starched stage lackey would stiffly aniionnce: The four kings—Hearts, Clubs, Spades and Diamonds, otherwise knoAvn respectively as Egbert Hunt, Arthur Forbes, Clarence Cros-veiior ami llervoy Grey. Four travel stained, but four jolíy kings. The foremost, Egbert, stepped simply toAvard his aunt ami kissed her oil cacli soft cheek. He presented his comrades to her Avlth a rightful pride; she looked so cool and SAVcct, ami so proud of him. She presided at the table with a quiet dignity that well became her; they breakfasted upon the wide piazza, and the large mirror troin Avithin reflected a goodly group. Not a perfect one, for men in novels only are perfection; they arc never found in real life. Still, these four merited their sobriquet of the Four Kings. Five feet eleven of well developed niantiood, aclear, never-flushing skin; a broad brow from which the black hair Avas combed upAvard; a nose perfect in shape as far as it Avent, but it did not go quite far enough; eyes bine and Avell shaped, but not so expressive as his mouth; the upper lip, hidden by a caressing little mustache, the lower protruding its redness invitingly as a woman’s. It was not a Aveak mouth, though; it Avould. close in earnestness into a jirm line, bespeaking strength of Avill and character. The* King of Hearts, winning them by his indificrcnce, Avhich may have been assumed. AV'omeu had spoiled him so long that he began to believe that they Avonld do so forever. Had he gathered tlie rosebuds Avhile lie might what a fragrant nosegay would his have been I Perhaps he may pluck but a weed or a thistle at the last, Avhcn he himself Avill haA'e become a Avithercd coxcomb. Tlie King of Clubs, Avho sat next him, should properly liaA’ebeen stalw art of figure; but Avliy may not a short man ofVii to a Aveakncss for SAvinging Indian dubs ? He Avas blonde, AA'ith hair rather thin and Avith eyes of luminous blue. His greatest charm Ava.s a hidden one, his voice, a soft, round baritone, full of sympathy. Did lie but sing tor yon, yon AVonld forget the little bald spot on the top ofhislicad. His nature Avas as unselfish as his A’oiee was bountiful. At his left sat the King of Spades; dark, medium height, and handsomest of the quartet. AVitli a face that girls loA'en, and a purse that mothers loved. His broAvn and wicked eyes shone kindly alike for mother and daughter. He had not yet fonnd the “not impossible she,” although rumor Avhispered that he Avas looking for her. He Avas avcII informed, with a fund of general knoAvledge which he Avas chary of sliOAving, and so, often gave the impression of a Avant of learuiiiir, Avhicli his independence Avould not correct. He had absolute control of the King of Diamonds, Avho loaned on the self-reliant character and believed In it—the King of Diamonds, a tall blonde Afith large, amber, heavy-lidded eyes and Avith soft, Avliite liaiuls—the King of Diamonds, Avho con Id thread a needle and if need be bake a pie. Mrs. Hunt turned from one to the other liandsome face and iiiAvartily decided the fate of each. She did not look like one of the “Avierd sisters” as she beamed benignly upon all; ratncr like a fat, feminine King Arthur presiding over a modern round table. A survey of tlie premises folloAved breakfast. Surely the stream that Avonud its Avay a distance back of the Avidow’s garden apiK’aied more to these geiitlcnicu than did tlie floAvers or tiie trees. The boats floating upon the water gave promise of a happy, purposeless drifting Avith the tide, of a shady spot, of a line, and—fish! On this first day the visitors naturally sauntered idly from place to place, sceiii" and being seen. One Avonders Avliich tliey enjoyetl the more. When they came home about tea time Mrs. Hunt impressively announced invitations fora picnic to be given on the next day. They took the amioniicemont philosopiiicallv and a littlequizzically; they liad spied so many lieads, peeping from so inAny Aviiidows, during their tramp. Hatl spied many, but not all. A cottage hidden in ti*ccs quite escaped tneir observation. Alas, “we do not hear the airv footsteps of the strange things thal almost happen!” A look Avoiild have discovered a cluster of girls, fresh as the summer morning. Four girls Avhose \’ery ditferences made the picture they formed more piquant; tall and short, gray eyes and brown, black hair and gold. All w insome and all Avith the stamp ot the city upon their merry selves. The next day daAViicd suspiciously clear for a picnic; and Avhen, burdened Avith hampers, our boys reached the grounds designated, they stopped invoiuntarily, for a moment, in Avoudermeut and admiration. The same stream gurgled along between thick overhanging trees. Nature had provided numerous lovers’ nooks— a veiy mockery. The wild floAvcrs sprung temptingly under foot, Avith their little cars pricked np, but Avith a tiiTd look, disappointed that they might never hearken to some tender tale. On this day the deAV stood saucily on the expectant blossoms, and the stillness, round about, seemed as if every liA'ing thing were alert and listening. Needless to say, the girls had already arrived. Noav, poets may sing of the timid, unsophisticated country girl; to my. mind, a city girl with her styles, and, may be, airs, is much more attractive than a simpering rustic maiden, especially if slie has already crossed the boundary line of one and lAVcnty. After formal introtinctions Egbert, Avith customary aflability, Avandered carelessly in turn to each fluttering spinster and said to her a foAV soft Avords, that made ^er tliink, poor thing, that slie surely was his cLosen one. She Avould go and tell Ana and Marv all about it in the morning. Alack! Ann and Mary Avoiild come to her, each with her youthful tremor and each with her little “And he saiti—” Arthur exercised his muscle at the picturesque SAving. Clarence sat Avith a tiny old lady all the afternoon, listening to her quavering anecdotes of the past and telling her of his mother. Ilervey, tlio helpful, directed operations at the luncheon table. After this every kind of net in the form of picnics, excursions and tea jiarties Avas throAvii to catch these four desirable fish. mortal deck Avithout meeting one once in a Avhile. Their friend, the joker, was a 22.5-pound joker, really good natnred, but Avith a spite against teasing hnmaiiity wliich had no respect for the stateliness Avhich his Avcight Avonlrt imply. He had fared badly at the hands of the kings. Avho Avould have considered it an imputation upon tln>ir intellect Jiad    they    alloAved an opportunity    of    torment ing him to flit by nnntilized. Noav he Avould indulge in a little amusement at their expense. So one night l.x sat doAvn, his chin also sat doAvn on his scarf-pin, folded his hands OA’er his Avatch pocket places, and shook Avith an inspiration. A fcAV momonts later he hastily Avrote: I My Dear Spades—Have as yet no ncAvs from yon. Hope yon are Avell and enjoying yourself. I «rrite to inform yon of a pleasure in store for yon. Sister tells me that four SAA’cet girl graduates and friends of hers are visiting a farm in the suburb Avherc yon are rusticating; they are board-’ ^ Avith a Katharine Murray. I EXPERT ANGLERS. EA’cry pack of cards has its joker. Our kings could not pass through this ing thought that I would let you knoAV before the other boys; don’t say any-tliiiig to them, butgo there to-morrow, Saturday, eveninsi. Sister has written to the girls. Hoping I have made myself plain, I am. yours truly,    H.‘H. Then the heavy schemer penned three cojiies of this first letter, enclosed all four in diftercnt colored envelopes, addressed them in diflerent handwritings, and sent one to each of our four kings. After this he turned doAvn his llglit, retired, and composed himself to sleep the sleep of the unjust. * * ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ On the sixth day after their arrival, a Saturday, each King received among his letters, one iiostinarked L. It had become a habit Avlth them to step into the garden after breakfast to smoke and read their letters. On thil morning Spades Avent first, sat doAA'ii, read his missive from 11. II., and resolved upon ills pretext to escape the others. Not long affcrAvard three other dupe^ decided tlicir apologies. About 3 o’clock in the afternoon Spades excused himself; he Avas going lisliiug; he AA'ouhl go alone,thanks, as he had to tliink over some mining speculations in whicli he Avas deeply, and he hoped succcssfnlly involved. Hearts had a convenient and self-improvised invitation for tea. Clubs and Diamonds being left toi;ether, hated each other cordially 1‘ou* iiio-nicnt or tAVO, then Diamondi grew vci’A’ anxifiu» about Spades; ho would go and seek him. He took very particular care about the knotting of his tie to go and sec Spades. Spades Avas so tastidious about tics, you knoAV. Clubs alone, rose hastll}', brushed his hair nicely and scVnpnlonsly over the bald spot, surveyed his figure, turned, and manfully made straight for Katherine Murray’s. He pulled the bell Avith a little trepidatiqn^and entered the parlor to behold four goddesses in AvIiite, and there conteiit-edlv seated in one corner Diamonds, chatting Avith a gray-eyed, cherry-lipped blonde. They both started, and both looked unutterably shceiiish. The girls, four charming ones, looked on soberly enough as to lips, but dubiously tAvinkling as to eyes. Could tliey kiioAV? Clubs ensconced himself by the side ot the girl nearest to the piano, but could not forbear asking Diamonds, “How is Spades?” The bell rang, the girls looked at one another, and all began conversing at once; the door opened and in walked •Spades. This Avas growing interesting. Conversation flagged, but all entered into the spirit of the thing and waited for the fourth ring. A moment passed and the little bell called out its Avarning. Hearts of course. He stepped into the room, arrayed to conquer and ex{>ccted to have it all his oAvn way ; a peal onaughter greeted him. Imagine his consternation! His first impulse was flight, but he caught a glimpse of a mocking little face, Avith bright broAvn hair ^nd eyes. That decided him. He could not make love to all, so he consoled himself Avith the wee brunette. It Avas a cheery evening tilled Avith music and with laughter, with Avit and with drollery. They Avcre accordant, and there is happiness in congeniality. Picnics were not patronized so extensively after this, but the path between despairing Widow Hunt’s and belligerent Katherine Murray’s, a prim, thin, sour-visaged maiden ladA, Avas well Avorn indeed. When, a tew weeks later, oiir heroes went home, they left four very important organs behind them. The in^t deal of the great shnflier of the cards of life may throw iqion the playing table of human allairs, four pairs; every king Avill have fonnd his queen. May it never be declared a misdeal!

IWashington Star.] There are not many Avho would take Senator Edmunds to be one of the most skillful anglers in the country. He can, however, east a fly with the best of ’em, and fairly revels in the sport. He is an expert at salmon fishing, and has killed many a big felloAV Avitli a light rod by dexterity and putieuec alone. Nor is Mr. Edmnnds tli» only .accomplished and eiithnsiastie disciple of Walton in his branch of tlic National Legislatnrc. In fact, some of the best anglers anywhere to be fonnd arc in the Senate. Hon. Wade Hampton is almost Avitliout a peer as u tly-lisliermaii. It is not alone tlie ease and giuce Avitli which he liandles the rod that gives him pre-eminence in the piscatorial art, but he is tlioroughly versed in CA’cry branch of the sport. His fondness for it has led him to study tlie philosophy of angling, tlic habits of game fishes, and the utility of tackle. He is a recognized authority on all matters pretaining to tlic sjiort. It has not been many days since Senator Haiiqiton, Avith a naked line on a light rod, made a cast that sent tlie cud of the line tAventy-four yaitls. Senator Frye is another skillful manipulator of the fly. He delights in coaxing the Avary tiout to lake the lure, and liis sunbunit face is proof of the diligence Avith Avhicli he plies the rod through the fishing season. Senator Vest is also a skillful angler, and a remarkably successful one. Ill the rivalry that uhvays goes Avith the fishing party he invariably enters Avith genuine spirit, and he usually wins the chamjiionship by killing the biggest lish and the gi-catest number. Senator MclMierson is another superb angler. He is the owner of one of the most complete ami costly outfits that Avas, jierhaiis, ever collected togellicr. With the adjournment of Congress he betakes liinisoh’ and tackle to the haunts of ba.ss and trout, and for a change he sometimes goes in quest of salmon. Senator I’latt, of Connecticut, is likcAvise an anient lover of the sport, and he is entitled to rank Avith the experts. He makes an annual tour through the Adirondacks, Avherc he has a tine permanent camp. Senator Kenna, of West Virginia^ is as foiul of the rod and rod aa m folloAving the lioumD. His home is a pleasant and poimlar resort forsjiorts-mcn. He keeps fishing tackle ciiongli to supply friends and neighbors on any occasion, and lie i.4 always ready, it fishing fails, to start his hounds on the trail. Senator Miller, of New York, kiioavs hoAV to cast a fly to perfection, and Senator Sewell is fainifiar Avith tlic exciting thrill that runs all through a man Avlien he has a “strike.” Senator Garland is fond of fisliing, but he is rather old-fashioned ill Ins ideas of the sport. He does not hanker after a split bamboo rod, but prefers the natural cane pole. Nor docs he care about artistcally liand-ling a fly. He avouUI just as soon catch a big bass with a minnow for bait as to delude him to the surface Avilh a fly. Senator Williams also jirefers old-time methods, though he 18 fond of the sport. Senator Vance can handle the light fly rod and the heavier bait rod Avith equal facility. His angling education was acquired in North Carolina, Avherc the varieties of the finny tribe are so numerous tliai the 8\K)rtsmeu must learn all ways of taking them. Senator Ransom, from the same State, likes to go fishing Avith a jovial party, but he is not particularly fond of the sport, though he can handle a rod Huceessfnlly when so disposed. Senator Rlddleberger is impatient for udjournmcnt, that ho nmv set out upon a siKirling jaunt, lltj has a comfortable spring Avagon and a pair of excellent horses, with Avhieh he Avill traverse the valley region of Virginia, flsniiig the streams and hunting the hills. His iamiiy generally accompany him on these trips. Senator Maxey is an enthusiast in bass fishing, but he is not partieular whether he takes them Avith bait or fly. Senator Beck is willing to make one of a fisliing party most any time, but it’s more tlic good company than the 8|>ort that attracts him. He doe.sn’t mind holding a rotl Avlieii the fish bite freely, but if the bass has to be coaxed, the Senator gets out of [laticnce. Senator Don Cameron is another Avhogocs fishing only Avhen the company is to his taste, and for the fun that an “outing” Avitli a jolly crowd alfords. that no one so fully realizes the value of an education as he who has been sneccssfiil Avithout it. The foIloAving is a list of the principal colleges Avhich have gi adnates in Congress: Union (!ollege has President Arthur, Senator Warner Miller of Noav York, Representatives Spriggs and Wemiilc of Ncav York, Millikeii of Maine, and Page of Ohio. Yale has Senator Duavcs of Massachusetts, and Gibson of lAinisiann, and Representatives Davis of Missouri, Seymore of Coiineeticnt, Phelps of Noav Jersey, and Beach of Ncav York.

Princeton has Senator Cameron, of Pennsylvania, and Colquitt, of Georgia ; and Representatives Everhart, of Pennsylvania, Fimllay, of Maryland, and Jones, of Alabama.

College Alen in Congress. lAVasliiiigtoii Cor. later 0<!caii.] The number of college graduates in tlie present Congress is unnsnally large, altlioiigh its legislative rcconl does iioU*khoAv that educational advantages make statesmen. It is a fact Avorth noting that the ablest men in both Houses, those Avho arc looked np to for leadership, were not college bred. Edmnnd.s, Sherman, Bayard, Pendleton, Logan, Cnllom,and James F. Wilson ill tlie Senate, Randall, Kelley, Carlisle, Reagan, AlcKinlcy, and others in the House, are not college graduates, but are practically self-educated; but it should be said One Widow and Her 8pooii«. lAVoiu.iti’s Journul.j There is noAV residing in Massachusetts a Avidow past ninety years of age, who tells the following facts of her experience as a Avidow with whom the laAV dealt. Slic married nng. To furnish her Avedding outfit she spun and avovc. With the money thus eai ncd she laid in stores of useful things. Silver spoons Avcre among the articles thus bought. By these sue set sjiccial store, for silver spoons in those days AA'erc not found in every house. It Avtis not long before this young AVife Avas a avíJoav. Then the laAV, which had given all she jMissessed to her hiisbaml, now interposed again to see that nothing Avhieh belonged to tlie heirs of tlie husband should fall into the hands of the Avidow. The spoons belonged to the liiisband; they Avouhl go to ids heirs. The young widoAV pleaded for her spoons, anditAvas finally agreed that if she Avould pay the money value of them she might have them. Forthwith she began to spin and Aveave, anil Avith the money so earned she bought back her spoons. By and bv she married a second time, and again tlie spoons belonged, according to laAV, to the second hns-bund. In process of time this husband also died. Again his heirs were (‘iititled to tlie spoons and to iiiiieh besides. But the taking of these cherished articles gave so keen a hurt ihat its sjiecial pain yet survives. She still tells hoAV, for the third time, she earned the money with Avldeh to pay for those spoons, and how they Avcrc conceded to her only on her payment of their money value.
