UNCLE PAUL'S WHIM. ;
"They would get married,'' laid Uncle
Paul, grim.. "It isn't mjr fault that
their husband are dead, and they're left
with familiea to bring op. I advised
them to etay tingle."
.."But it would be your fault," said the
mild clergyman, "if they starred or suf
fered." ' "I don't see why." '
;'''Brcaus yon have plenty of this
world't goods, and they are poor ; be
cause you hare but yourself to support,
and tbey have little ones dependent upon
them." . ,
"Oli, fudge !" taid uncle Paul. "I
don't keep a poor house, and I'm sure I
pay sufficient taxes and contribute to
charitable institutions enough to fice me
from extra demands, I told both of
them how it would be ; but Hester waa
always a self-willed creature, aud Letitia
bad a quiet fashion of insisting upon
having her own way, which was quite as
bad in the long run "
f Very well," said the clergyman, "I
can't pretend to argue with you upon j
the subject. I only state facts, and leave
the rest to your own conscience."
Saying this he went his way.
Uncle Pant took np hie pen and re
commenced writing entries in the fat old
ledger which lay on the desk ; bnt, for
all that, the rose-bnd faces of his nieces,
nety and Letty, as they used to look
flitting aiound his big .' armed-chair,
would continue to haunt him.
"Pshaw !' he exclaimed, at last, as he
dropped his pen, making a great, apoplec
tic ink blot on the middle of the page.
"I wish that meddling minister had been
obliging enough to mind his own busi
ness. I suppose I must do something
for one of them at least, but which shall
it bet Hetty used to have the prettier
face aud the more crdrxiug voice, but
then Letty had still, velvet-Yboted
way of always doingjttst what you want
ed before you fairly knew it yourself. Het
ty sang like lark all the old fashioned
songs I liked best to bear, but Letty
would play backgammon by the hour,
aud never get tired of the rattle of the
old man's dice-box. Well, veil, its hard
to make a choice " '
A week elapsed, and Letitia Carver
sat alone by the desolate b earth-stone
sewing, her little ones at schools, the fire
subdued to the fewest lumps of coal con
sistent with calorie life, when the door
opened, aud her cousin, the other young
widow, entered, also hi deep black.
" "Isn't it a sham !" cried Mrs. Hewitt,
indignautly. "Of course you received a
bundle too V
"I don't think I quite understand what
you mean, Hetty," said Mrs Carver. .
"Mean 7 I mean that Uncle Paul

send a bundle of old clothes to my door,

insulting note, 'stating that, at he had un

was so angry that I cried 1" '

fashioned, and I can get quite a new suit

wrathfully,' "you have no more spirit
than a wooden image ! '
Letty smiled and' shook her head
"I cannot sit tamely oy, tiester, ami
hear my little eaes crying with cold and
hunger!-' . -!- ' -
"Pshaw F said Hetty, imperiously.
"I am not yet reduced to be the recipient
of such charity aa that, from a man. like
Uncle Paadr who rolla in gold-"" I
"It is his own money, Hetty, and he
has a right to do with it as he pleases.
When you and ' I married against hi
wishes we both ' tacitly abandoned all
claims to hie wealth."
''"I don't' agree with' you there," said
Mn. Hewitt, haughtily . tossing np her
head.' "you've actuatly begun to rip
up the odious old things ""
' "See," said Letty, holding up the sec
tion of a well-worn waistcoat, with a
faint smile. "I am dilligent at work at
it now !" ' ' r
"I sold mine to a rag-man far a pair of
china vases," said Mn. Hewitt, indiffer
ently. "Horrid tawdy things they were;
only fit for the children to play with and
break, but still better than nothing at all.
What's that you are taking out of the
pocket!" the added, with a quick start
"A ten-pound note."
Mrs Carver unfolded at the same mo
ment a tiny (lip of crumpled paper, tack
ed far down into- one of the pockets. It
actually was, as her cousin had said, a
ten-pound note. ; . . -'
"Yoaare in luck I'' cried , Hetty. I
wish I had. thought to look into the
pockets of mine before I let the rag-man
have them ; but it isn't at all likely that
the old skinflint would make more than
one mistake of the kind. What shall
you do with it Letty 1" ,,
" ,Do with it V repeated Mrs. Carver,
opening her mild eyes with surprise. "I
shall take it to Uncle Paul at once. . It
is, aa you yourself say, a mistake."
' But lie has given you the suit.', .
'He never intended to give me the
money. Hester, and I have no right to
appropriate it," Letty answered.
Mrs Hewitt drew a long breath of con
"Letty Carver, you are too absurdly
Quixotic for anything. You don't de
serve good luck if you fling it about af
ter this fashiun."
"I certaiuly should not deserve good
luck if I acted dishonestly in even so
small matter as this,"
"I don't call ten pounds a small sum
to yon, whatever it may be to Uncle
Paul. Take my advice, Letty keep
the money and hold your tongue. You
need it and he doesn't and he will never
be a bit the wiser. What are yon tying
on yonr bonnet for I" -
I am going to Uncle Paul," was the
quiet reply,- as Mrs. Carver folded a
faded black eashmer shawl acros her
slender shoulders. '
"You are determined ?"
"Then I'll go with you,", said Hetty
Hewitt. "Perhaps between us both we
can manage to shame the old ,screw out
of a little of his surplus cash."
'I mean it Letitia. He used to pre
tend to be fond of ns "
''Until we set his wishes and judgment
at defiance, and proclaimed ourselves en
tirely independent of his will."
.. Hester Hewitt shook her head; her
wilful nature was entirely unconvinced,
bnt she abandoued the argument tempo
rarily. Uucle Paul Sheffield sat alone at hi
desk when bis office-boy announced i -
"Two ladies, sir."
"Well, girls !" said Uncle Paul, stick
iog bis pen behind his ear as'composedly
as if it had been only six days since he
bad seen them, instead of six years.
"Sit dowu sit down !
Mrs Hewitt obeyed bat Letty Car
ver advanced to her uncle's desk and laid
the ten-pound note upon its blotted sur
face of green blaise. Uncle Paul sur
veyed, her. -from behind the moon-like
orbs of his silver-mounted spectacles. ,
"Eh, what 'a this 1 ' heaaked, with, ap
parent unconsciousness. "Wbat'a this I"
''You were kind enough, Uncle
Paul," began Letty, hesitatingly, "to
send me some clothes to make up for the
children, f I found this money in the
waistcoat pocket when I was ripping it
up this morning." .
"You did, eb 7" laid Uncle Paul, re
flectively. Then, turning bis spectacles
reflectively on his other niece, he demand
ed, with embarrassing" abruptness :
,"Yoa, Mrs. Hester 1 what became of
the ten-pound note that was iu the waiat-
coat pocket of your bundle, eh 7" .
. Heater hesitated, turned first scarlet,
then pale, and was obliged to stammer
"I I didn't suppose I could make the
old garments useful, so I sold them to
a ng-man. '-
"For a shilling?' ' '"-
"No, uncle ; for two nice ehina vaeea,"
- "Two filagree fiddlesticks!" barked
Uncle Pan!, sharply. "Toe hiftleS-to
make up a good suit of only half-worn
clothes too proud to work for yonr
own living, bnt not too sensitive to ex
pect others to do it for you too haughty
to accept charity you're the same Hetty
that you alway were t Even the sea of
trouble you have gone through j hasn't
changed yon, and I dont believe anything
will but death.' ". ' !i : ;
"Uncle f" faltered Hetty, beginning
weakly to cry, the worst policy the
could possibly bare . adopted, if she had
only known. - 'i .: 1 r ' J
k Yee, went on Uncle Paul, rumpling
ma hair over his eybrows ; ' I ' put the
two notes in the two waistcoat packets to
try you two girls. One of them is told
to a rag man, the other has eome back to
me. . I accept the omen. Letty, my
lass, you and yonr little ones may re
turn to the old nest again.'- If the boys
are like you I shall take to them.' '
"But, uncle," whispered Hetty Hewitt
through her tears, "what shall I do V
'."Sell yourself to a rag-UMtn for a
match box to match your ebinaj vacea !"
quoth the old man, waxing grimly face
lions. ' Don't tell you I'll have nothing
more to do with you I".
No tears or entreaties on the part of
either Hetty or Letty could move the
old man 'a adamant resolve. Hetty bad
sealed her own doom past redemption,
aad her more thrifty cousin had become
a presumptive heiress, al through Uncle
Paul's whim. .
A WORD TO THE GIRLS.
One of our religious papers, in a recent
articles addretted to the young ladies,
gave them some excellent advice as well
aa hard hits, saying "Yonr bodies are the
most beautiful of God's creation. In
the Continental galleries I always saw
groups of people gathered about the pic
tures of women. It waa not passion ;
the gazers were just as likel; to be wo
men as men ; it was because of the won
derous bcanty of a woman's body."
Commenting ou this fact, the writer says
further, en imagiuiog a lady pasting his
range of vision, "Now isn't that a pretty
looking object 7 A big hump, three big
lumps, a wilderness of crimps and frills,
a hauling up of the dress here and tliere,
an enormous, hideous mass of false hair
or bark, piled on the top of their heads,
surmounted by a little flat, ornamented
with bits of lace, birds' tails, 4cc. The
shop windows tell us all day long of the
paddings, whale bones and steel springs,
which occupy most of ihe space within
that outside rig. In the name of all the
simple, sweet sentiments which cluster
about a home, I would ak, how is a
man to fall in lovo with such a piece of
compound, double twisted, touch-me-not
artificiality, as yon see in that wriggling
curiosity 7" With a wap-wait, squeez
ing lungs, stomach, liver and other vital
organs, into one-half their natural size,
and with thit long trail dragging on the
ground, he wonders how any man of
judgment, who knows that life 18 made
Bp of use, of sense, of service, of work,
can take luch a partner. He mnst be
desperate, indeed, to unite himself for
life with such a fettered, half breathing
ornament He further tells the girls that
the bad dress, added to the lack of ex
ercise that is so general, lead to bad
health, and men wisely fear that instead
of a helpmate they would get an invalid
to tike care of. This bad health in wo
men, just as in men, makes the mind as
well as the body feeble and effeminate,
leaving them no powers, no magnetism.
He tells those who giggle so freely, and
use large adjectives, such a "splendid,"
4c, that it deceives no one uuless as eil
ly as they arc, only showing others that
they are superficially, affected, silly, and
have none of that womanly strength and
warmth which' are so atsureing and at
tractive to man. He tells them they
have become so childish and weak mind
ed, that they refuse to wear decent names
even, and insist upon baby names In
stead of Helled, Margaret, Elizabeth,
they affect Nellie, Maggie, and Lizzie
When brothers were babies they were
called Robby, Dicky, and Johny; bnt
