Such a little witcli as ha was, this
Kitty lby, of whom I write. She
coul.lu't help flirting it' she tried, and it

scores of litem and Kitty went on her
way, r- juicing empe!lii their bewil

were very ffective nevertheless.

it for the "fun of the thing' and because

"II promised to keep the engagement

So lie told me, hut concluded after
ward to break his promise rather than act
dishonorably. For ft wouldn't have
been quite fair to have concealed the en
gagement from me."
'I don't know why, I'm sure. It's
only a bit of fun, anyway. I never

ly. 'He threw himself into such a pas

"Are you in earnest, Kitty ?"
"Yes, I am," and the blue eye flashed

derness all around her, atfdVpapa knows
that she is the closest ofd tmaid in exis

The next morning Kitty : announced
her intention of remaining in the city.
"But pap's, if Mr. ' Gilbert himself
should grow tired of the engagement af.
ter knowing me better, you'll not punish
me for ifral, will you," and her eyes
' Certainly not, child. What a ques
tion to ask."
But Kitty had a motive for it. A
plan had suggested itself to her mind for
out witting both her father and lover.
But she did'nt mean to hurry, and began
to pave the way for ' its success cau
tiously. As good luck would have it, who
should call on her that morning but eon
sin Joe, the firm ally and abettor of all
her childish mischief, and - as ready to
help her now as then.
"Oil ! Joe, such trouble as I'm in,"
and she claped her hand with a pretty
little gesture of appeal
"What you, Kitty 1 Is your cana
ry bird fractious, or is it something about
a new dress or bonnet that done-equal

. Kitty looked at him veo rejroechufly
that he was sobered in a minute.
"Tell me about it,' whispered he.
' I'm engaged," and if she'd - been an
nouncing, tier own funeral, she couldu't
hare done it in a more solemn voice.
Joe flushed up to the roots of his hair,
and clasped his hand in a nervous sort of
way, but didn't say anything.
Kitty watched bim maliciously. "It's
to that young Gilbert He's a splendid
fellow, and has great dark eyes and the
dearest little moustache. You know
him dou't you V
No y?s a li'tle," stammered - Joe,
to the delight of his listener. "But
what's tbe trouble about? Won't your
father consent'' and he looked so utterly
wretched that Kitty, with a faint twinge
of remorse, hastened to tell him the true
state of the caje. -
"Now tion't be cross, Joe; you're the
only friend I have in the wotld,' and
Kilty raised her eyes imploringly
He was innlihVd at once. "Why not
break with Gilbert and accept the alter
native,'' suggerted he. "It won't be n
very dull at Aunt Dorothy's. I've a
college friend in the neighborhood' aud
can visit you occasionally."'
Poor Joe ; the idea of having her all
to himself was delightful, and he waited
for her answer with subdued eagerness
"Is that the only plan that has occur
red to you ?" answered Kitty, sarcas
tically : "you hivn'l mnch integrity if
you can't devise some other way of get
ting me out of this dilemma. I've no in
tention of becoming an animated fossil.
Now listen to what I propose."
Then Kitty disclosed her plot, and
Joe listened approvingly, and the two
heads were still bent close together when
young Gilbert called, an hour later. He
entered unannounced, and Kilty gave
such a start and blush at sight of him
that Sne's hopes agaiu sank to zero. But
if he had been sensible, be would have
known that her embarasement was the
result of surprise rather than emotion.
She was very arch and winning that
morning until after Joe left (the little
-witch knew La was 00 nettles all the
time ; then she changed her tactics and
scolded him so furiously that he was glad
to 'escape into the street from such a
Had he seen Kitty laugh and clap her
hand's as he vanished from the scene,
he'd have been more puzzled than ever.
The next time they meet she greeted
him with such a charming smile, and
looked so naive and unconscious, that
this little episode would have passed
from his memory if it had not been for
He accidently (?) overheard a conver
sation between her cousin' and another
gentleman ! Kitty was the theme of tbe
'She's a dear little girl, but a regular
virago," said Joe "Everybody is afraid
of her when she gets into one of her fan
turms She just raves and goes oil in a
way that's perfectly frightful. There's
a taint of iusaoity in the ffjod. You
know her aunt and grandmothei died in
a lunatic asylum."
Young Gilbert listened, shuddering.
These words explained the scene that
had puzzled him before and awakeued
forebodings for the future.
"You say her father come down town
last week with bis head all bandaged np,
and heard him tell, perhaps, how teni
bly he's afflicted with neura'gia." con
tinned Joe. " Poor old gentleman ! 'twas
Kilty did the mischief, for in one of her
angry fits she threw a flat iron across tbe
table and hi him on the temple. He's
anxious enongb to marry her off, and I
hear Gilbert's to be the happy man,"
That individual turned pale. lie re
membered Mr. Day's eagerness in for
warding his suit, and the wish he had
expressed that the weddiug should take
place an early date. Though hia love
for Kitty was a strong as hia shallow
nature was capable .of feeling, a vixen
ish wife would be nondurable.
JUNE 19, 1871.
A week after he called on Kitty just
at dusk and was ushered by mistake (?)
into the library. The door betweeu that
and tbe dining room stood slightly ajar;
a woman's shrill voice reached him from
thence. Was it Kitty ? Yes, he recog
nized it ; he had heard, it once before, -pitched
in the same high key.
"Dou't tell me you didn't mean to,"
she echreeched, more like a mad woman
than anything else "You did, you did ;
yon wretched little imp !" Then there
was tbe sound of a heavy blow and the
shriek of a child
"Oh! don't, Miss Kitty!,' .wailed a
pitiful voice ; "twas so dark I couMa'l
see when you ran up against me, and I
stumbled and fell and the pitcher got
broken, and I tried to keep the milk off
your pretty dress, but couldn't
. ''You stumbled and fell," mimicked
Kitty. "Well, 111 teach you not to
another time Take that, and that, aud
that," giving the child blow after blow
that resounded through the room. "Stop
yonr snivelling, too. Do you hear ? I'll '
make you, if you don't
Tbe sobs were hushed up, and Kitty
went on. . ' 'Twas the prettiest dress I

Oh, if I'd only a rawhide ! (Twould do
me good to give you just such a wip
ping as yott descrva "
"Kitty, let that child alone," said a
new voice; and Gilbert recognized it as
"I shall do no such thing.' Get out of
the way, and mind your own business !''
she shrieked ; and there was something
that sounded like a bottle whizzing
throngh the room and crashing np
against the wall. Then a man's groan
was heard distinctly.
"Oh! Kitty, how could you?" said
her cousin, reproachfully. "Yuu've cut
my cheek terribly ; se how the blood
Gilbert didu't wait to hear any more, I
but fled from the house, resolved that he
wouldn't marry such a vixen, though she
had the facu aud form of a Hebe. !
The front door had no sooner closed
on him, when the actors iu the above '
drama weut of' into spawns of merriment.
Kitty stood rcve.tled iu the gaslight with
dress uninjured ; there was no cut to be
seen on Joe's face ; the child was no
"O ! oh! 'twas too funny!" gasped
Kitty, "that whine would have deceived
anybody, 'twas so natural. You deserve
a reward of merit for such splendid

"Well, what will you have V
"What a modest demand !"
" Do you think soT' and taking the
mischievous little face between his hands
scanned it closely. What He saw there
was evidently satisfactory, for he kissed
it over and over.
""Fis well to be off with the old love
before you are ou with the new,'' whis
pered he slyly.
"Gilbert's done for, and I've stepped
into his place.''
"But he didn't treat me in this way.''
I hope not." ',Twould be worse for
bim if he had. I'd shoot him in a min
ute." Mr. Day was surprised the next morn
ing by a call from Kitty's late suitor.
" I understand, sir, that insanity ij
hereditary in yonr family," he began
awkwar 'ly "and and," he paused and
tried to collect his ideas "that Kitty's
aunt and grandmother died iu a luuatic
All a mistake," responded Mr. Day,
pompously. "There was never a ease of
insanity, either among my own kindred,
or that of my late wife's."
"But your daughter, sir, has a pecul

together. I desire, therefore, to with
draw from the engragement."
''And have you told her this ?" thun
dered his listener, white with rage.
"Dear roe ! the father is worse than

Aloud he answered, "Oh, no ; I came to

A ITemaa whe Never Slanders Her Keigh
. bars. .
"Mercy knows," said Aunt" Jerusha,
as she settled herself in her small rocking-chair,
and wiped ber steel bowed
specks on her apron before placing them
astride her nose "mercy knows I never
slander my neighbors, I've enough to
take care of my own affaire. Now there
is Dorotha Ann always knows just
what every one has ou at church. The
idea of looking at people's dress in church
But that is some folk's failing. We have
our failings, I s'poee, aud a sigh finished
the sentence. .
Whether this harrangue was addressed
to the world in general, or was for the
special benefit of a tall yonng lady seated
at tbe table near by, inserting a pair of
shears into a piece of cloth, we do not
know. Thd young lady made no reply,
but a mischievous smile flitted over her
fjee, aud a sileuee followed, unbroken
save by the vengeful snap of tbe shears
as tbey closed over the cloth, and the
loud tick of the clock in the corner.
Suddenly Aunt Jerusha peered out of
the window. "Look, Minerva J;me,
ain't them the Carpenter girls going by ? '
-x-vo,-- mma ine laconic reply. "JJoyou
see bow they are dressed! They came
sailiug into church during prayer time
last Sunday looking like peacocks. I
watched them down the aisle clear to
their seats. They wore green silks,
velvet coats, and their bonnets looked
like flower gardens. I noticed their furs
in particular ; tbey were new and fash
ionable. Much cause they have to be
proud. I should think a glance at home
would lower their feathers some But
here comes Mrs Baker ! Oh dear 1 She
is a regular gossip, and we shall have to
listen to her yarns all the afternoon.
What a bore ehe is !" A vigorous knock
at the door was followed by the en
trance of the lady in question. Aunt
Jerusha rose with a beaming face to
greet her. "My dear Mrs. Baker how
do yon do 1 1 was just thinking ahont
you. Lay aside your things and spend
the afternoon. Minerva Jane, bring out
the rocking chair for Mrs. Baker." The
two ladies were soon seated with their
sewing, and Aunt Jerusha asked :
"Have you seen Mrs. Nash recently?
I wonder if her bus bsnd is as bad as
ever ? I declare that woman has a time
ot it. I s'pose you know he stole tbe
pork from Mr. Brien's cellar a few weeks
ago ?" "Yes, I heard of it." "Have
you seen Mrs. Slocura riding with the
young doctor." "To be sure ; some
folks say he's her cousin, but I don't
believe it." "Well now, I do pay," re
plied Aunt Jerusha, "I don't elauder my
neighbors; but tnat's pretty doings, any
how. Did you ever hear what a wild
girl she was before she was married ?
My sister's husband's eousiu used to
know ber, and she said she was perfectly
independent ; didn't care what folas said
about her. But I suppose you have
heard of Mr. Este's failure ? For my
part I don't wonder at it, his wife was
so extravagant y you've no idea how
much waste there was in that house ;
I'm not jarprised that her husband failed.
They say he drinks ; I should think
Mrs. Smith would feel dreadful bad lo
have Susan marry him . they 're engaged.
I'm told : I wouldn't have him courting
MinerVa Jauo for anything; but then
Susan ain't any better than she should
be ; I don't slander my neighbors, hut I
must say' I should not want a daughter
of mine doing as she does. Why Mrs.
Baker, you ain't putting up your work ;
do stay till after tea ; well, if you can't,
good bye ; come again soon. There !
il I ain't relieved," continued Aunt Jer
usha, as the door closed upon the de
parting guest "Did you ever hear a
womau go on so about her neighbors ?
The idea of slandering everybody as she
does ; to be sure I have to talk with ber
when she's here ; but mercy knows I

SWEEP OF nofSES, TREES AND' FE.N'f .
Cincinnati, June II. Later particu
lars from the scene of the tornado which
visited Quincy and Degraff,' iu Logan
county, on Sat'ai'dsy evening, show that
it was more terrible and destructive than'
the first reports indicated. A'Jultry day
was followed by the appearance of a
cloud in tSe west at 5 o'clock in the even
ing, which gathered in blackness and size
with fearful rapidity. A heavy wind set
in, and at 6:30 o'clock the wild wind
struck the earth five miles from Quincy,
The destroyer was hardly more than
five minutes in reaching Quincy, through'
which it passed, making- a cleau sweep'
of bouses, trees, and fences along its
path, which fortunately was comparas
lively narrow. In this village fifty or
sixty dwellings atid stores aad two'
churches, and as many more Bhops,
stables, aud outbuildings, were unroofed
rocked npon their foundations, or de
molished. The air" was literally fitted with flyiufE
weather-boards, furniture, lath and plas
ter. A pirlor' stove was caught up by
wind and hurled ' through the air, and
falling upon a womau crushed her bo'
that she died. The Baptist, Methodist,
and Episcopal charches'were completely
destroyed. The tornado, on the way to
De Graff, struck Boggs flouring mill,
five stories high, containing three thou
sand bushels of grain, moving the build
ing nine inches upon its foundation, and
carrying away the roof and a portion- af
tbe fifth story.
It ploughed its way through De Graff,
scattering destruction in its path, but
hurting fawef persous and injuring a Ies
number of buildings. After leaving De
Graff, it passed several settlements, and
finally rose fiom the earth, and was seen
for miles carrying in its fnnnsl-ahaped
form timber, rails' and debris, which it
had gathered iu its destructive march.
The papers this mcfnia give the
names of thirty-cine persons injured in'
Quincy and eleven in De OrafT, the list
not comprising all tlie injured in the for
mer village. Mrs Kail, reported to have
beeu killed in De Graff, is yet living.
Two of her children were killed. Mrs.
