Huntingdon Wayne was lliiiTy-five, and had never yet been in love. lie had worked hard and well and had made a fortune which even he felt would enable him to marry without being recklessly imprudent, and he beg.in to think it was time to decide upon a wife who should satisfy his somewhat fastidious requirements. She must be of a stately and noble presence—AVayne had rather an idea of a fine woman ; not too young nor too emotional; Wayne was a person who hated scenes—in short, she was to be a woman made to order, and he found it more difficult to discover her than he had at first supposed. It was with a feeling of something as akltt to iailui'cashis well regulated mind ever iudulgcd in that he ordered his iKU’tmauteaii iiackcd for a fortnight's visit to Ncwton-on-Sca, and tore himself away from the fascinations ut club and office life to pay a long promised visit to his old friend. Dr. Marshall, lie had seen nolliiiic: of the Marshalls for years [>ast, tlioiigh there was a tic of old associations be-tw(!cn them, and even something of sadder intci’cst. Five years ago, when Wayne’s uncle oftcred him a berth in tlic tea business, of which he was now ihe Bead, he extended a like offer to Huntingdon’s younger brother, Jack; but Jack, always something of a hotheaded fellow, look ofteuse at some word or deed of liis cider’s, and refused the oiler. Soon after he took some [>ost ou the east coast of Africa, and went out with high hopes of the foi-lune he was to bring back and lay at Tlettv MarshaH’s b'ct. Iluuliugdon heanl of the engagement with some contmupt for the folly which possessed two young people without a penny; but when,three years later, news came of [loor Jack’s death out in Zanzibar, the litlle bride that was to have been i»assedoutoi his mind, and it was only when an invitation came for him from the JMarslialls. who were at Newion-oii-S«?a tor Hetty’s ficalth, that the thought of licr existence crossed liim again. He had not even seen her since she was a little child in jiinafores, and when lie was brought up, ou the evening he arrived, to the side of a crimson hamnuKk swung' betwcmi two tall pine trees, and introduced to a slight, pale girl, whose groat blue «ye» were raised to his with a pathetic gentleness and sweetness, a feeling such as in all his, thirty-live years of sensible life be had never before experienced shot through him with a thrill of Avondcr, and almost bewilderment. He took in his own the small, fragile, white fingers, and then laid them down almost reverently on the soft cushions amid which she lay. I suppose if any one had asked him then and there whether he bclieveii in love at first sight, he wonld have answered as contemptoiisi.v as ever; and yet, for all that, he was as deep in love as ever man yet fell at one blow. He told himself it was a pity —a pity that only grew as the days passed by, and he saw how frail and delicate á creature her grcat tiouble of two yeai^s had left her, it seemed to him it was his duty to try and atone to her for all the suflfering and loss she had nndcrgone; as if liis life ought to make up to her for Jack’s death, somehow. Strange, that duty-had nevoi- had such a zest and a pleasure in it betore. Sbe was a thing so ucw to his experience, with her pleading blue eyes, her soft little ways, and "the pathos that hung about all that she dkl and said. Wayne used to sit and watch her furtively, as if she wei-e a creature of some* unknown race. Tlireo days after that first evening and the hammock, tne ideal “fine wo-mwi” had died out of his mind, never to return, and before tiie week was over, ho had said to himself—he, the practical, cool-headed, Hiintingdou Wayne—that life without little Hetty wniild be hardly worth the living, and that he must have her for his own, or die. Pi-actical oomnion-sons-ical men often take the hardest form of the disease called love. He spoke to Dr. Marehall before the middle of the second week, and asked his consent to win Hetty. The doctor listened with a good deal of surprise, but no appearance of displeasure, and when AVayne had fiiiisbed, he grasped him heartily by the hand. . “My dear fellow,” he said with something between a smile and a sigh, “you have my heartiest consent and niy best wishes, if you can get Hetty to say‘Yes.’ You are almost a part of poor Jack, and there’s no one else I should so gladly call my son. Of coAirse it all rests with Hetty ; but I know she does not dislike yon, and you must trust to time for the rest. Iaivc such as she gave poor Jack, perhaps the same woman never gives twice over; but there’s no reason why she shouldn’t love you well and make you a good wife. The grief of two years back is passing away—it is more the physical state left ’ by the shock of that time that wears on her know. Perhaps she will never be very robust. But you will take good care of her, I’m certain.” “She shall be strong again, plcasd Clod, if I can make her so by my devotion,” said Huntingdon, while a vision of uiisj)eakable happiness danced before his mind’s eyes—a snow-white yacht cruising among smiling islands in aKuminersea, seeking licalth for her who was its queen. “I’ll leave the business to look attoi itself,” he thought, w-ith a glow of ranturc, “and travel round the world with her till tbe color comes back to her i»ale face, and the light to her eyes—yes, and the liajipiuess to her heart.” So the fortnight wore away, and another was well-nigh gone, and yet AVXvne lingered at Newton-on-Sca. He was never away from rietty’s si«le; he fetched and carried for her like a dog, he was a slave to her every wish. Dr. and Mrs. Marshall regarded him with undisguised favor. Tom, the enfant terrihle of the family, voted him “no end jolly,” and Hetty—Hetty liked him well; her eyes brightened when he came, she missed liiin when ho was away; he was so thouiihtful, so kind, so good, no one could help being fond of him. One night there >vas a storm, and by noon the next dav came the news that a great ship from the Cape had aroiie to pieces on the Kazor Itocks, not two miles away. Nothing would do but that lieXty must go and sec it. Tiieie were no lives lost, they heard, blit the lifeboat people must wait till tlic tide fell before tfiey could get oU‘ all the crew, and Hetty was eager to see tlio rescue. So Huntingdon, of course, volunteered to drive her and Master Tom to the scene of the disaster in Hetty’s little pony-carriagc. AYliat a dr»v« tJiatwas! AVaync will neviT forget it while lie lives. Tlic hedges were all aglow with the June roses and the honeysuckle, and a breath of siiinnicrfloafcd up to them from the narrow winding lanes. Tlie pony was fat ami indolent and took its own time. Wayne wonld not have hurried one of its ste’ps. The snii was setting when they reached the solitary bay wiiere the steamer had run UKiiure, and a golden glory shone over sky and sea—edging the cloml banks with unearthly splendor, and dyeing with crimson the 'shallow pools left by the retreating tide. The clitf path to the shore was steep and narrow. Wayne had to help llctty with a tender care. Perhaps life had never hold such exquisite pleasure for him betore. Her lutlc light shawl lay over his arm, lier sniull hand rested in his clasi». It sceimal to him the world was bounded by Hetty. Never had his heart beat so high with hope. Once she stopped to gather a tiny blue clilf flower, and, after a moment’s pause, she shyly gave it to him. AVbis it only the sunset glow iliat mocked Ins’ fancy, or did a delicate color really mount to her clieek at his low-spokeu word of thanks? Out, far out on the low, black ledge of cruel rocks lay the great shattered ship. Little boats [ilicd swiftly ^nd safely across the quiet shallows where the storm-wavcs had,i-agcd not many hours ago. Hetty was all excitement to see the rescued peojile; while Tom, with the frankness of his age and kind, declared aloud that this sort of shipwreck wasn’t much good—there wasn’t any drowning to be done! The thoughtful Huntingdon had, of course, brought a telescojR*, and stood like a statue of-Atlas, while Hetty rested the glass on his shoulder and watched their boats laud their burdens ut the little fishing pier. He was in a sort of rapt dream, hearing dimly Hetty’s little ejaculations of pity over the bedraggled aspect. of the shipwrecked, and altogether ignoring Master Tom’s somewhat crude chatter, as that youthful tormcut wetted his feet at the inar<j[iu of the tble, and gave his opinion with delightful cuufidcuce ui)«n matters in general and shipwrecks in particular. The sunset glory grow brighter aiut' more vivid, lighting up the sombre cliflTs and level waste of water, and tbrowiiig into sharp relief o[ich black stake of the fishing-iioU which dotted the bosom of the broad bay. It seemed to AYayne that he would like to stand just so forever—Hetty close to him, he her support and comfort, no one to come between; ior Tern certainly did not count forinach. AVas it not a ty])e of what all their life to come was to be? Crimson glory—Hetty depending on him, his higlic^ happiness to minister to her. Suddenly into hie dream rang a shriek, wild and terrible. The tclo-8co)>e rolled from his shoulder and splaslicd into a pool at his feet, and as he turned to catch Hetty’s fainting figure in his stalwart arms, with one lightning flash liis eye fell where hers had rested, and saw, in tije crowded boat load just rcacliiiig the shore, among tlie bronzed and bearded faces of the wrecked ship’s erew, the face of Hetty’s lost lover—his own brother Jack! ♦ * * * * Ah! well, well. Wayne beliaved capitally, every one said! “Old Don behaved like the brick that he is after all,” to use Jack’s own exjiression. He took his brother into jiartnership, and enabled him to marry Hetty within six weeks—Hetty, to whose pale cheeks the roses had come back, as if by some magic spell. 11c never married. “Don was an old bachelor before he was in knickerbockers,” Jack confides sometimes to his wife. People say he means to leave all his J money to his niece, little Hetty, who n has her mother’s eyes. And deep in a secret drawer, carofnlly treasured from prying eyes, lies a withercil scrap of weed, wliich was ohcc a blue clift-flowcr, and is all that is left to llnntingdou AVayne of his life’s one holiday.

(he The Poet’s EfTorts to lleforin Di*ess of His Coiintryiiicn. trail M.all Gazette.] Mr. Oscar AVMlde, speaking at Ealing last night on the subject of “Dress,” rcm.'irkcd that during the pa.st few years a sense of the beauti-tul appeared have revived in the country, although this ITas not ex-tcmlcd to the matter of di*e.ss, there being nothing of the rational or beautiful about it. In order to a reform in this diiection what was required was the conqinlsory teaching of drawing to every child, whleii would result in a thorough uinierstanding of the grace and beauty of the human form and the best method of adapting dress thereto. At present the great enemy to reform was fashion, and in this respect wo liad been greatly guided hy France, whose inllnence had been most iiernicions, dating from the time of AV’'illiam the (joinpieror, who in 1036 found the people of Enghand wearing a drc.ss at once beautifnl and simple. Tiin ladies of liise^rt, however. introduced the cs.lggerated styles which supersede»! those of the inhabitants of this country. If asked to fix the time when the dress of this country was really lovely he would say tho Kcoond qnarier of the seventeenth century. During the reign of Charles 1. the costume of the country was both u.scfnl and Iwautlful. Tiic restoration of Charles II.j however, resulted in the reiutrodnetion of the Freiieli intlueneo, and the beautiful and artistic in dre>.ss deeayeti. In this niaticr Franco lias arrogated to herself a position and exercised an influence which she by n»j inyaiijj deserved. In cousiderliigAvliat dress was appropriate it was necessary toconsidcM-the [iroporUons of the room. In evening dvc.-íscs the liurizonul or vertical line was most common, but the best figure V ouhl bo the obliijue line, wliich would gfvc a grace and dignity whicli was otherwise wanting. Mr. AVildc also advocated the wearing ot liigh waist bands and sjioke highly of the costumes of the (ireeks, Assyrians and Egyptians. The wttor particularly observed one verji imiKirtant principle, namely, that of! the dress being supixirted nut by thé waist but by the shoulder. In inofiern dress, however, all the weiglit was on the waist and hf]), which destroyed grace in walking and real beauty in dress. This also necessitated the use of the dress-improver, which he denounced as extreunely ungraceful. The Greeks looked for beauty of texture, perfect freedom of body. High-hfelcd boots, which threw the whole liody forwaid, he also strenuously condumnod, together with tight lacing, whioii was injurious as well as tiiigracc-ful. The modern tall hat also came in for a share of condemiiaiiun, Mr. W'ildo expressiug a preferenoc for a soft one, but more strongly recuin-niending a hood. GencraUy ho expressed himself strongly in favor of such a modification of the Greek coslnmp as woiild meet the exigencies of our varying climate. Undcrolothes shdf Id be suill-ciently tight, hut not so intch so as to impetlo the free use of tiio limlis. AYitli pr»%)er underclothes eoino .'idap-tation of the tunic or cloak of the Greeks would be wliat ho wonld recommend. He also urged that the basis of dress should be wool, which was the most saiiitary of any material, giving tlie necessary coolness in snnimcr and requisite Vvurintli in winter, advocating further the use of soft brown Icallier, such us that of wliich the doublet of former times was made.

[Medical and Surgical Ileporter.] This singular incident oecurred on the occasion of the late murder of Mr. It. M. .Stribling by I. E. Gladson, at Markham, Fauquier County, A^i., the former a descendant of Chief Justlee .Marshall audot Dr. Stribling, so eminent for bis treatment of the insane. Two reniark.able coincidences have been published in connection with the killing of young Stribling, viz.: Dr. AA'alter Ilriice, liis brother-in-law, a native of Virginia, now resident at Micanopj', Florida, late on Friday bight, December 28, awoke from a sound slcej), feeling that there was some niystcrions presence in h!s room, and go( np and lighP'd a lamp. Finding no one, he returned to bed and tell into a light sleep, and had a dream or vision ot his wife’s brother, U. M. Stribling, in a deadly conflict, in whicli he had his throat cut in a lior-ril»le manner, and was removed to, a store near by, placed on a counter, ami after a lapso of time died from the effects ofjhe wound. Dr. llrnce, though farfrtnn believing in “isms,” sneh as 8j>iritnalism, visited a medium in the town, who fold him that some awful eulumity hail befallen young Stribling. The vision and its elleot on the mind of Dr. lirncc prevented him from sleeping. Sure enough, the next mail from Virgruia annonneed the death of his brother-in-law in the exact manner and at the very hour he had tn>peared to him. .-X sister or me    urljo ivas visiting nfiativos in Kentucky at the time of his death, had also a similar dream, and while relating it at the breakfast table was biimbRl a dispatch annonneing its tnllillincnt. The writer’s brother-in-law furnishes like (ixperienee. While on duty in tlie Hritlsh Navy in the Gulf of Mexico, be saw the form of his father in a dream vividly presented, jiale and gliaslly, though when he had lately parted with him at I’ortsmonth, England, he was in the vigor ot Ids i.ianhootl.

Tabur Not a Silver King. [St. Io)uia Globe-DeoiociSt.] Senator 11. A. AV. Tabor has figured as a silver king. His wealth is believed by many, even in Denver, to be vast beyond computation, and when he served out his celebrated thirty (lays’ term in the United States Sígnate, the ncwsjiaiiers were filled with stories about his t|i500 night shirts and big diamond rings. His career has been, indeed, marvellous. Seven years ago he rana little grocery story in the gnieh. He “grub-staked” sue<’essful prospectors, and bis wealth began rolling up. The most important of his present proj)crty consists of an interosiin the Matchless mine at ÍAíadville, the Tabor business block in Denver, the Tabor Opera House in the same place, and the Tabor Opera House here. The output of tlic Matchless has dropped off w'vonty per cent, part of it is in litigation, and the suit is draggingin the con Its for ore heretofore taken o»it. The ojKira house and block at Denver are covered with mortgages, .and the interest on borrowed mo.icy is simply enormous, eating a large per cent of his high rents. The opera iionse here in a simdl two-story brick building, with two store rooms in front an<l a saloon in the rear. They probably pay an average rent of II.W a month. As to the opera house portion, the entertainments in it do not ex(M!ed one every two weeks. The entire building is inortgag(*d, and it can bo r»;adily seen that no very enormous income can be derived from it. In addition to what is mentioned, Mr. Tal)or owns a one-baif Interest in the Clarendon Hot»;!, a largo frame building in tiiis citv. On this he rc-(!cntly borrowed Jfil0,000. Of course, bo lias a large amonpt of mining properly, both in this Stale and New azcAii-u,' mit iA ¡J |>i>ut>tiuully uon-pro-dnctive, and eo largely imist hope enter into its valuation tiiat it can not be fixed upon a eonimercial liasis. The most sanguine of Tabor’s friends say if he “cleancil np’’ what he has he would be worth $266,(XX). Others say ho wonld be worse olf than nothing. One thing is iMutain —ho is not a millionaire. Ho is at present making the canvass of the Slate for Governor, which will reduce his pile considerably. VVasliii)“toit Irviiii; In tbe West. [Kur)Hii8 City (Mo.) .loiirnal.

Our journey lias been a very interesting one, hrading us .across fine prairies and through noble forests, dotted here and there by iarins and log houses, at which we found rough but whole-soino and abundant fare and very civil treatment.

Ysster-day I was out on a deer bunt in the vicinity of this place, which led me through some scenery that oiilv wanted a castle, or a gentleman’s scat here and there intersjwrsed, to have equaled some of the most cole-hrated park scenery of England. The fertility of all this AYestcrn country Is truly astonishing. The soil is iikc that ot a garden, and the Inxnriaucc and beauty of the forests exceed any that I liavo ever seen. AVc have gradually been advancing, however, tt^ward rouglicv and rougher life, and are now at a straggling frontlur villugo that lias only been five years iu existence. From h(»icc, in the course of a day or two, wc take our departure Bouthwardly, and shah soon bid adieu to civilization and encamp at night in our tents. My health is good, though I have been aft'eeted by the change of climate, diet and water since luy arrival in the AVest. Horse exercise, however, always agrees with me. I enjoy my journey exceedingly, and look for stNI greater gratification in the part which is now bel'ore me, wliich will present much greater wiiduess ami novelty. The climax will be our expedition with the Osag(!s to tlicir hunting grounds, and the sight of a hufiulo hunt. AVasihnotov Ikvino. The Wish-Done. by Rl'TII UALL.
