HE DID rr.
Ho kissed me, and I k new 'twas wrong,
For he was neither kith nor kin ;
Need one do penance vorv long
For auch a tiny thing ? *
Ho pressed my hand-that wasn't right;
Why wiil men have such wicked ways?
It wasn't for a minute-quite
Botin it there wore days and days.
There's mischief in ihemoon, I know;
Tm positive I saw her wink
When I retiuested him t . go;
I meant it too-I almost think.
Rut, after all. I'm not to blame;
He took thc kiss: I flo think men
A re quite without tbosetixc shuuo
I wonder when he'll e:mie nguiu.
A COQUETTE COSftlEfiED!
s. BY HAMLET.
There was a great party given st
the house of Mrs. Dayton in Park
Square, and moving ninjestically as a
queen amone the 'goodlie compauie,'
was Alice Montgomery. She was as
beautiful as a poet's dream. Her
rich olive complexio i was faintly ting
ed on either che"ek Ly a soft peach
like bloom ; her eyes were as dark as
midnight, and her hair fell almost to
her waist in ebon curls, their jetty
hue relieved by a crimson rose fasten
ed near her temple. Her features
rivaled in the beauty of their classic
outlines the finest work of ancient
Acknowledged as the belle of the
evening by all present, she received
the many compliment? which were
paid her with the greatest coolness
and a slight air of weariness.
"How oeautifol she.is!" said one
of a group of three gentlemen who
were standing near her.
"Yes, magnificent, but utterly
heartless," replied another.
"As arrant a coquette as ever
breathed," said the third. " Poor
Carrington fell into her snares and
worshipped at her shrine with the
greatest adoration for nearly two
years, and at the very moment when
he fancied he had attained the sum
mit of his hopes she .cast him off as
a wayward child would a broken
"Iheard she had rejected him,"
said the first speaker; "yet they
seem to he very firm friends."
"Heaven preserve me from such
friendship !" replied the other, "Car
rington is as hot headed and passion
ate as can be, although outwardly he
appears as cool and collected as any
of us. He knows he'hi s been played
with, and he will yet make yon fair
lady rue the day she first trifled with
" See, he is making his way thzough
the crowd towards us. Who is that
foreign looking gentleman in compa
ny with him ?
" I do not know him."
" Nor I."
" Good evening, gentlemim," said
Carrington as he reached the. group.
4* Allow me to introduce my friend,
Senor Armengole, of Venezuela."
The usual salutations were exchang
ed, and alter a few moments conver
sation Carrington remarked.
" We must leave you, gentlemen,
for my friend is exceedingly anxious
to know la belle Montgomery. By
all appearances she has already made
a fresa conquest in the person of the
Senor." ' ^ '
A dight smile flickered around the
mouth of the Veneznelian as he al
lowed himself to be led immediately
to the presence of Miss Montgomery.
The introduction over, the lady made
room on the sofa beside her for her
new acquaintance, and they became
engaged in an animated conversation.
Misa Montgomery exerted all her arts
to make an impression on the Senor ;
and truly he seemed worthy of the
smiles of any lady. He was tall and
slim, and as straight as an arrow.
His face was very dark, and he wore
a heavy black moustache. His eyes
were grey, and looked as if they could
.b; ne as cold as marble, or at times
scintillate gleams of fire. His dress
showed him to be possessed of the
most faultless taste.
Hour after hour rolled on, but still
the Senor Armengole and la belle
Montgomery remained conversing on
the som, neither of them evincing the
slightest desire to mingle in the gid
Alice Montgomery Wi at last
foundafoeman wor;hy of her steel
She listened to his stories of the revo
lution in his cou ni ry with the most
breathless interest, her face glowing
with admiration as she heard his
words of fire.
The party broke op at last and Se
nor Armengole handed Alice Mont
gomery to her luxurious carriage,
which was driven rapidly home.
" He-shall be mine !" said the beau
ty to herself as she glided quickly
As the South American turned af
ter the carriage was driven away, he
met Carrington face to face. For a
moment the two men gazed into each
others' eyes. Tue face of Carrington
was deathly pale from excitement,
while that of the Venezueliah wore a
cold sneering smile.
"Well?" said Carrington at last,
uttering the word with an effort.
" I shall succeed," said Armengole.
" Are you certain ?"
"Perfectly; I seldom fail. I am
somewhat fatigued so I must bid you
good night. ? will call upon you to
morrow. " -
" Good night," replied Carrington.
After the night of the party Senor
Armengole was a welcome visitor at
the house of Alice Montgomery.' He
was her constant companion at par
ties, balls and the opera. Go where
they would Carrington was always
present. He seemed to haunt their
steps like a spirit. People who knew
Alice said that she had found a new
victim, while the uninitiated many
envied the Senor his good fortune.
Months roller] on and still Armen
cole paid his dcvoiis to the beautiful
la belle Montgomery.
Alice Montgomery was sitting one
evening working on a piece of em
broidery, when her uncle came and
took a seat near her.
ff Alice," said he, " I can not see
what it is you admire in that dark
" Well, but he is so pleasant and
intelligent, Uncle/' alie replied.
"My dear," said he, crossing hi*
legs and looking at her over his spec
tacles, " I think that man is not ex
actly all right ; how do you kuow
but what he is some impostor."
"Oh, Uncle ! how could you speak
so harshly about Senor Armengole,
who has never behaved towards you
as j anything but a gentleman ; and
than Uncle to think he is a Senor.
" I do not pretend to accuse him of
this, but as to his being a Senor, who
could not call himself a Senor; and,
besides, I want to see ?ny sister's child
marry an Englishman, instead of go
ing to Sonth America ,with this for

as you are born no good will come bf

and what was better, a large fb
in her own right, and therefor?

an instant only. His face flus

A week-after this conversation t

partiire for Caraccas where they
rived in due time. Armengole
gaged a dwelling in the most fashi

The Printer's Estate.
We find the following remarks,
which all printers and publishers will
agree in calling sensible, in an ex
change, and, commend them to the
attention of the reader. They will
apply to all localities in 'vhich news

The printer's dollars-where are
they? A dollar here and a dollar
there, scattered over the numerous
small towns, all over the country,
miles and miles apart ; how shall
they be gathered together? The pa
per-maker, the journeyman composi
tor, the building owner, the grocer,
the tailor and all assistants io him in
carrying on his business, have their
demands, hardly ever sc small as a
single dollar. But the mite; from
here and there must be diligently
gathered and patiently hoarded, "or
the wherewith to discharge the lia
bilities will nev becme sufficiently
bulky. We imagine the printer will
have to get up an address to his wide
ly scattered dollars something like
Dollars,halves, quarters, dimes and

for valuable as you are in the aggre
gate, single you will never pay the

you in battalion, and send you. forth'

his feeble credit.

NEVER LEAVE/ HOME WITHOUT
TELLING WHERE You ARE "GOING.
One Jones, of New Hampshire, left
home in August 1871, two years ago,
and has not been heard from since.
His son died intestate a few months
after. If his father was then dead,
his estate was his son's, audk at his
death descended to his heira-at-law.
If the father survived the son, his es
tate, on the father's death, went to
his legal representatives, who were
not the same persons as those of the
.-.on. The finding of the father's body
in ??ept. 1872, afforded no light; in
the absence of evidence t he court held,
us in case of contemporaneous loss by'
shipwreck, that tho son, being the
younger and presumably the strong
er, was the survivor. Thus, simply
by not leaving word with somebody
when or where he might be foind,
the old man has, perhaps, diverted
his property to the heirs who were not
entitled to succeed to it.
