OUR HIRED GIRL.
We weru nearly worked to death when
Ellen informed us that shu would ttay
no longer where all the "trundle-bed
trash" look it upon themselves to "boss
her around." So, though I assured her
I'd let mother do the ordering, she cuili-
ered up her dry goods and her dignity,
What was to become of us? Grace
was to be married in just three weeks.
and such a coufuMiou of silks and mus
lins, laces and flowers, purple and fine
linen as there was in the rooms up stairs
yoil never saw.
So much to be done in the wayot sew
ing, to Bay nothing of the baking for the
wedding supper (tor Grace had prely
fine ideas of how she wanted things
done,) and no one to do it all but moth
er and I.
"Well," said brother Willie, "I sup
pose it'll be my fate to eUrloii'in search
of another girl, though where to go, I've
not the remotest idea, llns sectiuii of
the country has been pretty well scour
ed and a girl who is not too 'stuck up'
to work out is hard to be found."
"If this is the case, what is the use of
trying?" said mamma, "I guess you and
I can get along, f lora.
"No," said 1, "you will be down sick.
and it's bud enough to have Grace go;

Grace, quickly, "you speak as though I

produced the following:

vate famliy in the country. One who is not to

Will and papa had quite a laugh when
I asked them to take tho sd vert i semen t
to town and make arrangements to bring
the tiirl (whom I was sure was in exitis
tence somewhere, and would answer,)
to our house, as soon as she called at the
"You'll have the pleasure of seeinn
something of your own composition iu
the newspaper for your pains, and that
is all, you may be sure," said papa.
Jiut 1 had great fault in the success ot
my venture. This was Monday; tho pa
per was issued on b rulay, and there
stood the advertisement that was to
bring us a "perfect jewell for a girl."
Ihe next ivloiiiluy morning, mamma
had a sick headache and while I was
busy over the washtubin the kitchen,
singing "Put mo iu my liltl- bed," (he-
ing the most lackadasicul thing 1 could
think ol) a buggy drove to the door,
and a neatly dressed young lady came in
and informed me that she had seen our ad
vertisement in the paper, and would like
the situation, it agreeable to us. Her
quiet dignity quite upset me. I was not
prepared tor this.
A tall slender girl, with a pink, sea-
shell complexion, such masses of golden
blonde hair, nnd, strange te say, large,
black eyes, shaded by dark lashes and
browp. There was the unmistakable air
of a lady about her, aud I woudered if I
could ever dare to "ooss" her.
I concluded her services would be
agreeable, so I showed her to her room
and W ill aud the hired man carried up
In five or ten minutes she came down
attired in a neat dark brown calico dress,
with a pretty cambric ruffle in the neck,
and announced herself ready to com
mence operations. I woudered it these
slender white hands could ever do any
thing, but I was not long left in doubt.
All that day Louise Hale and I worked
together, now in the kitchen, now hang
ing up the clothes, now in the dining
room, and finally, iu afternoon toilets,
sewing in the cool north "chambers, with
Grace. We talked of nothing but our
work, and though she seemed willing to
do anything that was to be done she made
no pretentious to being over-anxious to
make herself useful. I was astonished
at the case and deftness to which she
turned off the work.
"How do you suppose she ever could
be at such work?" said Willie. "I never
was more taken back thau when I saw
this handsome creature mashing pota
toes when I came to dinner."
"Well," said Grace, "it is a mystery
"I believe I'd lock my door to night,"
said Will, teasingly. lie was always
laughing at our cowardice about stran
gers in i lie house.
We were standing at the garden gate,
under the weeping willow, Grace and
Willie and I, feeling a little sad at the
thought of being so soon separated.
I had been feeling half angry at Leslie
Clare for coming to take away our dar
ling; but to-night, as I saw her, in the
pale moonlight looking so sweet and
pretty, I should have been more angry
w ith him if he had not loved her aud
wanted to carry her oft .
I turned from hor beauty to go to the
uouse, ana mere on the upper piazza
stood the "hired girl," her arms embra
cing the nil In. r. her aids taee tnrnail tn ....
the sweetest smile curled the full red
lips, and she seemed thinking of some
thing very pleasant and amusing. '
"No," said I softly, to Grace as ' we
camo up the walk, "sho is no poor for
lorn creature who has lost her fortune,
and is heroically facing stern work for ft
"She has never come here from neces
sity ; she has come from choice, and with

The book and the work were finally laid
aside and we found ourselves in one of

A Blight disagreement arose about the
author of a certain book. I was opposed

Guests Irom a distance began to arrive;
among them was cousin Charlie Hazlet,
from New York. Grace had spent the
last Summer in his native town and had
given me rare accounts of his manly
beauty, his talent and fascination. I was
prepared for a great flirt, and had a sort
of nervous dread of him. He came.
He was handsome, tall, dark and slender
with a haughty, or rather earnest,' way
of looking at one, as though ho read
one's thoughts. At times, however,
he was so gay and brilliant that I lost

Belle Kaymond, one of Grace's brides

I was very obtruse; could not under

The house was full ot company for near

and looked so beautiful that the people

was "our hired girl."
The day after the weddinij we all

A gay, cheerful song, sweet and
clear as the cotes of a bird. Now up, up,
then fluttering down softly as if satis

We were unheard by the singer as we
alighted, and we walked straight into
the parlor "to see the bird."
"Why, Louise". I cried, "why did you
never tell us you sang so beautifully?
You might have entertained us so otlcn

"I believe that your advertisement on

So Louise sang. Willie sat by and drank in

of "Artemas Ward," tells Ihe following good
In the spring of 1859, 1 accepted a proffered

Clevclnud, ns though I had lived there all my
days, to say nothing of nights. "Artemas" in
vited me to share his bed with him for the re
mainder of the night, and I accepted.
Adjoiuiug his room, lodged a young profess
or of elocution, who was endeavoring to es
tablish a school in Cleveland. He was jusl
starling out in business, and was naturally
anxious to orooithitc the press.
"Let's get the Professor up," said Artemas,
"and have him recite tor us.V

the lateness uf the hour, that I wasn't ac

lo no purpose.
"He is a public man," said Ward, "aud pub

He gave a thundering rap ou the door as ho

"It is I, Brov-u, of the riain 'Dealer," said
Arteiiins, and nudging me gently iu the ribs,
he whispered, "That'll fetch him. The power
of the press is invincible. Il is the Archime

His remarks were interrupted by the opening
of the door, and I could just discover the dim
outline of a shifted form shivering in the door
way.' "Excuse mo for disturbing you. Professor,"
said Arleuias, in his blandest maimer, "but I
am anxious lo introduce my friend here, the
new 'local' of the Jhiiuxrut. He lias heard
much of you, and declares positively he cuu'l

"Hears mo what?" asked the Professor, be

"Hears you elocute recite declaim un

In vaiu did tho Professor plead the lateness
of Iho hour, snd his fire had gone out. Arte

"Permit me, at least," urged tho Professor,
"to put on some clothes and light I he gas."
"Not al all necessary. Eloquence, my dear

side whisper in my ear, "The burning deck

Oenlly, yet firmly did Artemas boost the
reluctant Professor upon the chair, protesting
that uo apologies were necessary for his ap
pearance, and assuring him that clothes didu't
luiiko the man, although the shivering disciple
of Demosthenes and Cicero probably thought
clothes would make a mau more comfortable
on such a night as that.
He gave us "Casablanca," with a good many
quavers of the voice, as he stood quaking iu a

It wasn't iu VVard's heart to have his fun at

HAND TO HAND.
The Modo't outrage" having intensified
the national Indian sensation which had
been slowly fermenting to murderous
explosion for so many months before,
there is a painful revival of popular in
terest iu the red American I-immcl, and
whatsoever relates to liis savage charac
teristics is germane to the news of the
hour. Though all Indians are not Mo
docs, the proscribed race, ns a general
thing, in their hopeless and rapidly in
creasing numerical inferiority to their
hereditary white pursuer, are more giv
en, in th"H lat ter days of their despair
ing hatred to treacherous wiles and das
tardly ambuscades, than to the nobler,,
open warfare of their historic past; yet
the warrior who delights to meet his
pale-faced peer in mighty hand to hand
grapples, is not yet extinct, and merits
renewed celebration if only to show that
his dying people have not always been
mere robbers and assassins, like the das
tardly murderers of C'anby and Thomas.
In the times of the Cherokee toubles
in the South, Major John Seaborn, who
may vet be living in his home in North
Carofiua, hal an aboriginal adventure,
which a citizen of Whithfield county,
Ga., now recalls in the New Georgia
Citizm for modern study:
While a member of a surveying party,
encamped on the banks of the Ktowali
Uiver, in what is now the Seventh Dis
trict of Bartow county, the Major one
day started to visit a missionary station
situated near a largo spring about a mile
and a half inland, armed only with the
hunting-knife in his belt, and not even
accompanied by the faithful dog usually
attending his steps.
The savages were very bold in their
encroachments at that time, and the Car
olinian had not followed the forest trail
very far before he involuntarily ambush
ed a gigantic Cherokee who was cau
tiously leading captive a pony, upon
which sat, in pleading terror, an Eng
lish missionary's lovely daughter, whose
too daring morning ride had brought her
into the toils of the outlaw. Seaborn
paused for a moment in his unsought
concealment in the undergrowth, to w it
ness the girl's wild effort to make her
pony break free from the iron grasp of
the captor, and see the latter raise his
tomahawk iu murderous menace, and
then, with a shrill yelp of championship
and defiance, sprang grandly to the very
side of the rearing animal. The beauti
ful captive had just fallen from the sad
dle, and, as the surprised Indian invol
untarily retreated some stejis away, the
rescuer swiftly caught her in his anas,
replaced her on the steed and bade her
ride for her life. She needed no second
warning, but was off like the wind; and
then the white and red knights confront
ed each other with looks meaning battle
to the death.
The Indian was a herculean chieftain
known as Unakayaswah the "white
man killer" and the Major, although
standing six feet in altitude himself, and
jiroportionately muscular and brave, felt
impelled to such skirmishing tactics as
might draw him towards the camp on
tho river, and at the same time tempt
him to discharged his tomahawk. The
moment the Cherokee defected the de
sign in the other's measured backward
strides, he bounded forward, brandish
ing his weapon, and when the strategist
finally wheeled and broke into a dead
run, sent the lingo battle-ax hurling
through the air. Only by an adroit
swerve did Seaborn elude the terrible
missile, which, after grazing his hair,
struck deep into a tree lieyond; but now
he was upon more even terms with his
enemy, upon whom he turned instantly
at bay. So quickly did he make the
movement that a terrific blotv ot his list
met his pursuer before the latter could
stop his advancing impetus, and sunt
him reeling backward several paces. Now
began the tight in earnest. Thrusting
forward and aiming his head like a
haltering ram, in the manner of the ath
letes of his tribe, the savage came on
again with a raging w hoop, his purpose
being lo throw his head between his ad
versary's legs, who thereupon would be
dashed in somersault upon his own head.
Major Seaborn was acquainted with this
trick, however, and so deftly swung him
self aside that il was the headlorg savage
who came to earth, and that on all tours.
Then he was down on the discomfited
warrior like a wolf, wrenched his arms
from their supporting position with agile
strength, and in a second had him lace
downward on the ground, like a hawk
under an eagle. Momentarily disengag
ing one hand then to make a vain effort
to draw his hunting knife, which had
beeu caught by the handle in his waist
band, he gave the Cherokee opportunity
to catch the other in his teeth and bite it
to the bone. Iu his pain and w rath the
white man repaid his wouud with a show
er of tremendous blows, but the episode
had beeu a diversion in favor ot Unaka
yaswah, who hy a supremo heave and
twist managed to wrest himself from be
neath his load and regain his feet. Ter
rific fisticuffs followed, but the scien
tific boxing proficiency of the Carolnian
caused such one-sided business that the
sorely punished red giant, after failing
to get in a blow, rallied for a clinch.
His object was to force the fighting in the
direction of the tree in which stuck bin
tomahawk, an detecting this purpose, the
Major fought furiously to thwart it.
Unco when the savage hurled himself
with all his might upou his toe the latter'
feet caught in a trailing vino and brought
him down on his back in the tierce grap
ple. Both were up again as quickly in
opposing physical impulses iu straining
towards and forcing away from the crit
ical tree, and then by a skillful trick of
wrestling, Seaborn accomplished another
fall, iu which he was uppermost. This
time, too, even with a pair of rt-d hands
clutching his throat, he succeeded in
drawing his knife. With a snarling
"Wah l" the warrior met this movement
by clasping him mightily nronnd tho
body and crushing him frantically down
on himself, and it would then have been
question of whose lungs could longest
cndiiro tho terrilio pressure, but for tho
sudden nppoamnce of anally forth white
man. A yelp and rush- sonnded in the
bushea, and the Major's dog from camp
leaped upon the scene and instantly
fastened his keen teeth In the nearest
shoulder of his master's enemy. Una
kaynswah lost his grip under t'l's new
attack, nnd was at the mercy of the
hunting knife in the next moment. "Kar
nnrli ! karnar !a J" (Enough J enough !)
ho cried. "Take off tho dog. Brave
white man kill not great chief. I sur
render." His conqueior bound him
hau l and loot with his buckskin suspend
f rs, and was humanely staunching the
blood from his wounds when the mission
ary's daughter came dashing back from
tho station with two armed men for the
rescue. "As they looked at the Stalwart
form and bloody visaze of the savatre."
said the victor, in his subsequent account,
"and at my own somewhat bruised and .
sanguinary appearance, and listend to
my narrative of the desperate struggle,
they gave vent to expressions in regard
to my strength and prowess which
brought the tinge of pride to my cheeks.
s for the lovely girl whom it had been
my enviable fortune to resenft. she hon
ored me with a regard for which I would
gladly have dared greater perils, and told
of my deliverance of her with tears of
gratitude streaming down her cheeks."
In fine keeiiinor with the romantic pig
ments of this affair was the marriage of
the Major and lady some three months
inter. Not for tho chivalrio sentiment
thus illustrated, however is this story re
told, but in celebration of a tvpe of In
dian character which is at least above the
cowardice of treacherous individual assas
sination. Unakayaswah uliinately atoned
with his life for some of his savagery in
i"g Co., biit in tho encounter just
described he fought as became a great
warrior. It is worth while to note. also.
that in this same hand to hand conflict
the white man owed his victory chiefly
lo the physical training of civilization,
as at critical points of the struircrle.
knowlcdga of boxing, skill in giving the
wrestler's "fall," and finally, even hia
civilized utilization of canine fidelity for
help in such time of need, gave him a su
periority without which the battle might
have ended very differently. Barbarous
bravery fights ever at a disadvantage
with educated skill, and degenerates nat
urally, perhaps, into Modoc treachery
and brutality, which is maddened to reck
less despair by the inevitable triumph of
its surely exterminating adversary.
A Persian Lady.
The Motherof theShah of Persia is thus
described by a recent writer, who being
a lady herself, may be presumed to have
had a quick eye to discern the peculiar
ities of the Persian toilette. Sue says:
"The Shah's mother was dressed with
great magnificence. She wore a pair ot
trousers made of gold brocade. These
Persian trousers are always very wide,
each leg being wider tbau the skirt oi a
gown, so thai they have the effect ot an
exceedingly ample petticoat, and, as
crinolines are unknown, the elegantes
wear ten and eleven pairs of trousers, ono
over the other. (They call a European
lady's dress 'trousers with one leg.')
The trousers of the Shah's mother were
edged with a border of pearls embroider
ed on braid. She had a thin blue chemi
sette, also trimmed with pearls, nearly
meeting the top of the trousers, which
arc fastened with a string. A small jack
et of velvet was over the chemisette,
reaching to the waist, ana on the head a
small shawl, studded with pearls and
diamonds, and pinned under her chin.
Her arms are covered with handsome
bracelets, and her neck with costly neck
laces. Her hair was in bands, and hung
down in a mnltiiude of small plaits.
She wore no shoes, her feet being cover
ed with fine Cashmere stockings. The
palm of her hands and tips of her fingers
were stained with henna, her cheeks
were well rouged, and her eyelids and
eyebrows covered with antimony.
How to Kkep off Flies. In one of
of his lectures the celebrated J. M. Me
chi said: "Where you have plenty of
food, warmth and stock, von will have
abundance of flies. My bullocks could
never lie down iu the day time, owing
to their attacks, and, of course, the long :
continued lifting of their feet prevented
fattening. Hy tlarkeuing the feeding
houses 1 entirely removed this nuisance,
and had the gratification of putting my
animals in a most profitable state of re
pose, for, if you have ten millions of
flies, not one will bite in the dark."
Mechi is a warm advocate of provi
ding shelter for stock, first ou the
ground of economy, and second ou tho
score of humanity.
Maxauino A SyrEAK. The experi- ,
enco hero recited is by no means new, as
many a sufferer will testify:
A man who draws theprizo of squeak- T
ing boots from a shoe store always gets .
them on Saturday, by tho next day tho
full power of the squeak is developed.
He arrives at church at the opening of
a long prayer, and is admitted by tho
sexton with admonitory gestures of si
lence. The first step inside the door is
followed by a sound like that of ripping
a clapboiird from the side of the barn,
while all the ladies on the right side of
the aisle, tip their topknots to one side
and squint from their left eyes, those on
the other side reversing the ordor. Bal
ancing painfully on his worst corn, ho .
makes a more gradual effort, and is re
warded by hearing the same harmonic
reverberance-like linked sweetness, long
drawn out. Then ho tries to navigate on (
the balls of his feet, and waddles along
on his heels. Ho clutches convulsively r
at tho side of tho pews to . lighten his 1
weight, knocks down a womans parasol, :
aud gets all the deacons to raise their
bald heads, and scowling as they do tho 1
rest of tho week. So he determines to '
mince the matter uo more, trots along
fast, and reaches his pew with his under t
garments turned to porous plasters, aud ;
his face of a color to match the saint'
dono in red glass in the principal win-
dow. ' ;
