VICTOR HUGO AND THE MOUSE.
Grny Victor Hiiro In Ills nook
Sit musing over a favorite book,
When lo, half timorous, half Intent,
As on some serious errand bent,
His daughter and his grandchild brought
A mouse the pantry trap had caught.
The poet turned with loving heed
To hear the little maiden plead
With piteous faco and eager cry,
"3ay, grandpa, shall the mousey die?"
"Uehold the thief," tho mother said.
"The pixy, with Its nibbling knife,
So busy around my checso and bread I
Just now, made prisoner whllo It fed,
We found it squeaking life a life,
And, melted at Its shrill complaint,
Our Jennie, like a tender snlnt,
With tearful pity begged its life.
Her pleading charmed away my frown;
1 spared my victim doomed to drown,
And told its gentle advocate
Her grandsirc should decide Its fate."
"Poor little mouse 1" tho old man smiled,
Aud drew his darling to his kuco.
"Sec how it trembles," lisped tho child,
"It's Just as scared as scared can be,
And sorry, too, I guess It feels
Uecause my mamma says It steals.
All such a mite could cat nnd drink
Is no great stealing, I should think 1
Its head could cuddle In my ring;
Its ears-are like a midge's wing;
Its tall is just a bit of string;
Its wee bright eyes-tho cunning thing t
Its body scarce a spoon would till;
It isn't big euough to kill I
Aud, oh, It looks at you so shy
Say, grandpa, shall the mousey die?"
Fondly the aged poet spoke:
"The boon you ask is grand to give;
Jeanuie, I stay the fatal stroke,
Aud bid your tiny prisoner live."
Then, as with kiss and blessing sped,
The child to free her captive ran,
The old man closed his eyes, and said:
"So Heaven decides man's lot for man,
The mouse that nibbles on the shelf
Knows not its fate, nor know I mine.
I own a Providence divine.
Since to that small, four-footed elf
I was a providence myself;
And as my grace a life could spare
That feels no thanks, and knows mo not,
I well believe celestial care
Has oft my own deliverance wrought
Without my knowledge or my thought."

A MODEL SON-IN-LAW."
A Itiicy Story of London Society.
"Really, Maria, you are the most fortunate of
mothers!" observed the IIou. Mrs. Hunter to
her intimate friend, Lady Fisher, as they sat side
by side at the Duchess of Bcckington's ball.
"Your younger daughter, Lottie, is the belle
of her flrst season, and has all the men at
her feet, while your elder, Alice, who has now
been out five yeais, has secured the attentions
of that most eligible parti, Sir Rupert Hamil
ton." "He is her cousin, you know," the other lady
replied, as if deprecating the notion of anything
beyond cousinly affection; though it must be
admitted that she glanced with evident satisfac
tion toward the opposite side of the room, where
her rather plain elder daughter, who had so far
been a matrimonial failure, sat listening, with
downcast eyes, to the pretty speeches of the
handsome young baronet.
"And what if he is ?" returned Mrs. Hunter.
"I only wish my girls had a few such cousins !
The premier baronet, and twenty thousand a
year ! why, my dear Maria, if he were her
grandfather, and the law permitted it, you
surely would not object to your daughter's
marriage with such a parti as that 1"
"But my dear Julia," Lady Fisher returned,
in a tone of mild remonstrance, "their ac
quaintanceship hitherto has only reached tho
stage of light fiirtatiou, and I do not allow my
self to hope anything yet; for clear Alice, you
know, is not favored with beauty, though she is
n rrr,Ail trnn-llrtnrtni'l rrlrl 1'
"Plain girls are always that!" the other
answered candidly. "Dear mo! Who's that'
strange aud over-dressed young man, just enter
ing the room'"
Lady Fisher adjusted her gold-rimmed glasses
to her eyes, and had a good stare at tho young
man in question.
"Ah !" she said. "That is young AVatcrs
you have heard of him, have you not J"
"What ? tho son of tho great tailor ?"
"Tho same, my dear."
"Then how comes he here ? Tho dear Duch
ess Is generally so very particular about her
Lady Fisher smiled rather sarcastically. "My
dear Julia," she answered, "since it has become
known that he Is worth ten thousand a year,
tho ladies of tho pollto world have grown
6trangely forgetful of his parentage, aud he is
asked to all sorts of great houses, though I, for
my part, would uever ask him to mine."
Mrs. Huuter did not answer. Since sho had
learned the wealth of tho tailor's son sho had
conceived an interest in him, and was following
him about with her watchful eyes. Presently
she exclaimed: "See, Maria 1 AHco knows
him, If you don't. Ho's just talking to her
now, aud Is, 1 believe, asking her for a dance."
Lady Fisher glanced In tho direction Indi
cated, and her face assumed an expression of
annoyance, as she remarked:
"I was not aware that ho had been intro
duced to Alice. But I hope sho will know bet
ter than to dance with him."
Her hope, however, was destined to be frus
trated, for when tho next valso struck up
young Waters approached her daughter and
led her away on his arm.
Lady Fisher said nothing, but sat with her
lips tightly pursed aud a vexed expression on
her face, gazing toward where Sir Rupert stood
flirting with the daughter of a rival chaperouo.
Mrs. Hunter observed her friend's annoyance,
and secretly rejoiced at it.
"Dear Alice seems to bo getting on very nicely
with tho tailor's son," she said sweetly.
"FJi oh utnph I wasn't noticing," roplled
tho other lady, with an air of assumed Indif
ference. But that she had been noticing pretty
carefully was made clear when her daughter re
turned to her after tho valso.
"Alice," she said, sotto voce, but very se
verely, "how could you bring yourself to dance
with that young man, and encourage his famil
"Oh ! mamma," AHco replied, "1 kuow ho's
not one of us, but he's very amusing."
"My dear," was tho chilling answer, "girls
who ehooso their partners because they are
amusing will uever do credit either to them
selves or to their mothers."
In tho meantime her late partuer, Mr. Leon
ard Waters, thought ho would fortify himself
with a class of champagno before ho ventured
on another dance. So ho made his way down
6talrs to tho room where refreshments were be
ing served. When ho entered It ho found It oc
cupied by only two other men. Sir Rupert Ham
ilton and his bosom ally, Jack Morris, who, as
illJuck would havo it, sat drinking champagno
with their backs to tho door, and did not see
him come in.
"I say, Rupert," Jack Morris was remarking
In his mellow, joviol voice, "if you mean to
mako up to cither of your cousins, why not
choose tho younger one ? She Is a pretty girl,
at any rate."
"My dear Jack," the baronet replied, "you
know nothing about it. Lottie is a pretty girl,
but when you've said that for her you've said
all. Whereas Alice is devilish fascinating, not
beautiful, 1 admit, but with plenty in her wit,
sentiment, and all that 1 Besides, what is
beauty worth f Damn It, my dear fellow, you
can get plenty of it in opera-dancers aud ballet
girlH" "Talking of opera-dancers," answered Jack,
with a laugh, "have you heard how that fellow
Waters has been boasting of tho manner in
which ho cut you out with littlo VI Salnsbury,
of the Jollity ?"
"Has ho ?" the other said, carelessly. "Well,
I can afford to dcsplso his boasting. The fact
is, that 1 was devilish tired of hanging about
after the woman, and was only too glad of tho
opportunity of splitting withher, which Watcrs's
appearance on tho scene gave me."
"lie doesn't regard it in that light," Jack re
turned. "He brags llko anything of having
worsted In an affaire du cccur one of the smart
est, handsomest, and richest men in Loudon.
And, 1 say," (with a sly wink,) "take care ho
doesn't cut you out with Alice Fisher aleo. I
saw him making play with her to-night, and I
believe that, oven if ho didn't care for her a jot,
he'd marry her for the mere glory of ousting
Sir Rupert laughed scornfully. "I am not
much afraid," he said, "of being cutout by that
over-dressed monkey. Gad, if I thought Alice
preferred the creature to mo, I should be In
clined to go and hang myself 1"
"He is somewhat of a cad, certainly," as
sented Jack Morris, emphatically; "and to bo
defeated in a lovo affair by such a follow would
be an Indelible disgrace 1"
"It Is a disgrace which J do not mean to in
cur," tho baronet said, lightly. "But come,
Jack, we've done enough in tho light refresh
ment line 1 Let us now turn to the scene of
They rose from their seats, and, turning
round, found themselves faco to face with Leon
ard Waters, who had heard every word of the
above dialoguo 1 An angry flush suffused his
face, aud he was biting his lip to keep hack the
wrathful words which his rago prompted him
Morris, who was a good-natured man in his
way, started, and betrayed some confusion, as
ho passed Waters. Not so Sir Rupert; he only
drew himself up to his full height and walked
by the insulted one with a stony stare of con
tempt, which was infinitely galling to the young
fellow's lacerated feelings. A hundred wild
plans of revenge darted through his excited
brain. He was even half-minded to follow Sir
Rupert at once to tho ball-room, and there pub
licly demand an apology. But as he grew
calmer he reflected that such conduct on his
part would probably result in his expulsion
from polite society, in which his status was still
unsecured; and also that to take notice of re
marks accidentally overheard would not be a
course of action likely to bring him in much
Yet ho was burning for revenge, and ho would
have it, too ! But how '! There was nothing
for it but to await such an opportunity as
chance might afford.
Having thus resolved, and recovered to a cer
tain extent his outward composure, he went
back to the ball-room.
Few fashionable balls and parties occurred
during tho ensuing weeks from which young
Waters was absent, and at most of them, as was
likely, ho met Sir Rupert Hamilton. But ho
avoided all exhibition of open hostility to the
baronet, who, for his part, treated the tailor's
son with dignified contempt.
However, it soon became apparent that there
was every prospect of a collision between tho
two men In the near future, arising out of the
fact that Leonard Waters began to show Alice
Fisher rather marked attentions, and that the
young lady, in spite of her mother's displeasure
and her cousin's sulky frowns, did not altogether
When things are in this state, and a girl be
gins to play off one suitor against another, it
needs very little to bring matters to a climax.
In tho present instance the climax came
about in the following manner: It was at Mrs.
Stnnh'v Hunt's most successful ball, in Gros-
venor Place, and toward the end of tho evening,
that Leonard Waters came up, and (for the
fourth time that night) asked Miss Fisher to
give him a dance. Sir Rupert Hamilton,
whether by chauce or design, chose tho same
moment to make tho same request, and, as
neither of the gentlemen showed the least dispo
sition to retire In favor of tho other, Alice was
left tho somewhat Invidious task of choosing
Now, had her mother been by, the young lady
would only have ventured to make one choice,
but sho took advantage of Lady Fisher's absenco
at supper to exercise a littlo coquetry.
"I feel highly flattered," sho said, "to think
that I am so much In demand. But I cannot
dance with two gentlemen at once can I?
Now, Rupert, I feel sure that you havo only
asked me because I am your cousin and you
wish to do your duty by me. Besides, wo see
to very much of one another don't wo? So,
I think" (with a quick littlo glance at tho
tailor's son) "that I must decide In your favor,
Tho baronet said nothing as, indeed, how
could ho ? But ho drew back with an angry
scowl on his face, and turned on his heel,
muttering something about a d d puppy," in a
very audible aside.
When tho dance was over, Waters, noticing
that his partner appeared rather palo and fa
tigued, offered to procuro her some refresh
ment. She declined, but suggested that they should
seek some cool refuge, as the ball-room was "so
dreadfully hot 1"
"Where shall it ho, then ?" ho asked.
"That looks nlco and cool," sho answered,
pointing to a conservatory, which opeued out
of tho ball-room. "Lot us try that I"
Accordingly they made their way to tho re
treat in question, and found two empty seats
behind tho shelter of a hugo cactus, Alice was
strangely preoccupied, and, as Leouard Waters
was a poor baud at conversation, unless hi6 at
tempts were well responded to by his compan
ion, they sat for 6ome tlmo In silence.
At length ho ventured to observe, "I fear I
havo rather offended your cousin, Sir Rupert
Hamilton; havo I not?"
Sho blushed and sat with downcast eyes, tap
ping tho floor nervously with her pretty littlo
"I am glad you havo I" sho murmured. At
least, I meau that Is to say, I "
Sho broke off suddenly, appeariug much agi
tated and confused. Aud at that moment tho
music of tho next dance struck up.
"Wo must return now!" she cried quickly.
"Will you take mo back to tho ball-room V"
"Oh, let us 6tay hero for a few mluutes longer 1"
After a feeblo littlo remou6trauco sho acqui
esced. Tho other occupants of tho conservatory wero
already crowding back to tho dauclug-room, anil
In a short whllo they wero left alone. Even had
they not been tho strains of tho baud would havo
provented their yolces from reaching anybody
"You said just now," Waters began, "that
you were glad that I had offended your cousin 1
Do you mean "
"Oh 1" sho Interposed, "do not think too much
of what 1 say. Very likely I meant nothing!
And yet and yet It Is miserable to have to veil
tho truth all tho while and keep It pressed down
In my heart 1 Why should I uot confess It to
you, Mr. AVatcrs; for I feel suro that you" (with
a subtle emphasis on tho pronoun) "will under
stand aud pity me. Sir Rupert persecutes mo
with his attentions, and wants to marry me, and
Sho could not finish her sentence, but broke
down, overcome by emotion, and, covering her
faco with her hands, sobbed hysterically.
What feeling was uppermost In Leonard Wa
tcrs's mind at this moment It Is, perhaps, Impos
sible to say, hut ho was naturally tender-hearted
and easllv moved bv a woman's trrlef. so that tho
desire to revenge himself on Sir Rupert, which
had hitherto prompted his attentions to Miss
Fisher, was not the only motive which Influenced
him to bend forward and lay his baud on one of
tho littlo white wrists which tho weeping girl
held before her face.
"For Heaven's sakcl" ho said, "do not glvo
way to grief llko this ! Miss Fisher Alice clvo
mo the right to protcctyou from the persecuting
attentions of that. that fellow, and of all other
men 1 Alice, darling Alice, say that you lovo
mo and will be mlno 1"
She suffered him to remove tho dainty littlo
hand from her faco and to hold It In his own,
without drawing it away. Then, as ho repeated
his question In still more ardent tones, her trem
ulous lips murmured a reply, which certainly
was not No 1
Half an hour later Waters approached Lady
Fisher when ho saw his chanso of getting her
alone, and, hold with tho elation of his unlooked-
for triumph, went straight to tho point and asked
her consent to his engagement with Alice. The
worthy lady was, as a rule, very good at dissem
bling her feelings, but on the present occasion
sho wholly failed to conceal her annoyance.
"She could not undertake," sho said, "to give
him a final answer at so short a notice. But if
he would call upon her next day tit 4 o'clock sho
should by then have had tlmo to fully consider
So tho following afternoon, at the hour ap
pointed, Leonard Waters repaired to Lady Fish
er's house, in North Audley street. He found
her ladyship much more gracious than sho had
"I have talked tho matter over with Alice,"
she said to him, "and the result of our conversa
tion is that I glvo my consent to your engage
ment. I find that my daughter Is'bent on mar
rying you, and since she is of age and can, by
law, marry without my consent, I think It fool
ish, as well as useless, to withhold It. There
fore, Mr. Waters, provided that the settlements
are satisfactory as I am suro thev will he we
'may consider the marriage arranged."
Alter some twenty minutes' turtner conversa
tion, in which Leonard promised to make the
most handsome settlements on his Jianct, ho rose
and took his leave.
As ho passed down tho stairs whom should ho
meet, coming up, but Sir Rupert Hamilton?
Tho latter started when he 6awhim and scowled
angrily. But Leonard, in his character of victor,
could afford to laugh at his vanquished rival's
demeanor. He half expected, and entirely
hoped, that tho baronet had come on the same
errand ns himself, to find that tho despised tai
lor's sou had carried off the prize from under his
But when Sir Rupert entered Lady Fisher's
drawing-room the scowl of auger had disap
peared from his face, and was succeeded by a
smile of easy good humor.
"Well, aunt," he said, cheerfully, "I have
just met young Waters on the stairs. I suppose
he has been to obtain your consent, and It is all
"Yes 1" she answered, "it is. And all through
you, Rupert 1 How can I ever thank you
enough? Alice tells me that tho skill with
which you lured him on, and brought him up to
the scratch, (to use that very vulgar, but most
forcible phrase,) was beyond all commenda
"Nay, aunt, too much credit must not attach
to me!" he answered, with a laugh, "Jack
Morris, you know, originated tho idea, and like
wise helped me to carry It Into effect. Besides,
Alice played her part with uncommon clever'
ness. She says that the pathetic littlo scene, in
which sho confided to WTaters that she was per
secuted with my attentions, was tho hardest
bit of acting that she has ever had to do, and
that 6ho came dangerously near laughing in the
crying part of It, Yet, after all, tho success of
our little plan is mainly duo to that silly
jackanapes' confounded touchiness. I don't
believe that there's another man In London who
would havo fallen Into tho trap. Now, aunt,
having fulfilled my part of the bargain, I claim
the fulfillment of yours your consent to my
marriage with Lottie !"
"My dear boy," cried Ladv Fisher, comlutr
forward, and taking both his hands in hers, "you
have it with all my heart. For what greater
boon could you have conferred on a mother ?
To marry tho pretty daughter that is what
mauy would do 1 But to havo secured a good
2Hirti for the plain, unattractive sister the
matrimonial failure of five seasons thai is, In
truth, tho action of a model son-in-law."
