GOOD RESOLUTIONS I
BY MRS. JX, A. KIDDER.
Three months married! Am I happy?
Docs she love mo as she should? ,
?ave I always done my duty
Self forgetting, for her good?
When the cloud carno down this morning,
Settling over .Love's fair day ;
Did I do my best to lift it?
Did I prove a helpmeet?-Nay !"
I am sitting/here unhappy,
Conscie/ie stricken, lone and sad,
fie has^one from mo to labor,
Andiis poor heart is not glad !
Wjj?nfhe bent his head to kiss me,
Angrily I turned away ;
Vishing I ha<l ne'er been married ;
Telling him the same to-day!
Once I vowed to love and cherish
Her until death did us part
Soon, so soon, my vow is broken
To thy shame oh ! faithless heart!
Three months married ! By this token
I'll begin 1113' life anew
Fly slow hours, and bring my darling.
Who henceforth shall find mo tr ne."
" Blame me only, oh ! rnv husband,--"
. . (S??)
" No! tho fault was mine dear wife "
"I will henceforth do my duty.*'
,: I will gua^-d you with my lifo."
"We'll forgive and be forbearing;
Lifo b6reaftor will bo bright,
Though the clouds may seem to lower,
And the sun be hid from sight!"
THE STORY OF A G?.\IlfS.
ELINOR,, you are a genius!"
s ?d,:.wli3i the air of one who is |>ro
fouudly convinced of the truth of her
statement". Elinor, I may its well,
say, before going farther, wa3 myself.
'* Yes/you are a genius without doubt,
and,"if ! am not mistaken, geniuses
have a-way of making themselves fa
?^rn?sTh the world."
, " Hov/ ?" ineekly inquired Elinor.
" Oh ! by pamtiug, music, litera
ture, i venting locomotives, ?'ateut
churn?, and the like."
" I cannot paint even passably well.
My cottages look like haystacks, and
people always take my deer to b; my
cows ; music ! I eau barely master
one of Beethoven'ssonatas or Chopin's
?iocturnes-master, why the compo
sers would turn in their peaceful
graves if they could but hear me,
and even Will whistles and drums on
the windows, when I play, 4 to drown
the noise,' he says. There is litera
ture !-yes, I might possibly-I might
"write a story. I jumped from my
chair at the thought, and walked
hurriedly up and down the room.
Why had the idea never occurred to
me when I had pined vainly for new
dresses and girlish finery ? Here I
had been wasting two whole years
since leaving school; in that length
of time I might have earned-I stop
to calculate. No, I will not say thou
sand surely, and with that sum-.
'Here.my hand camejn_cjjnj^cijaith
my almost empty pocket-book, which
jingled in a manner suggestive of
miserable nickles and penny pieces."
-;.?> ort? empty," I said dis

my brain. Locking my, chamber
door to prevent interruption, I poured
tue contents of the drawers out upon
the table and sat down to hunt up
materials for my first story. As I
turned over the papers, I caught sight
of a slip on which was written " Leo
nora De erny"-only that and
nothing more. Who was she ? I could
not recollect ; but, no matter, J?h<^
f^W?d I determined that she should be
my heroine. I wrote busily till the
supper-bell rang, and went down
stairs with ink-grimed hands-half of
one thumb alone keeping its natural
hue, and looking like an oasis in the
? Aunt Lucy regarded me with severe
"I know they are dreadful," I
said, " but it is all Mr. Brown's fault;
he should have punished me when I
blotted, he would have done so only
I was too pretty !"
".Humph! It is odd that such
childish beauty is always outgrown,"
remarked Aunt Lucy with manifest
"I have never out-grown mine," I
answered cheerfully, feeling piously
. glad of an opportunity to provoke
There was along silence, broken by
Aunt Lucy's offer of jelly-cake.
" Not any, auntie," I said heroical
ly, " I am in a great hurry," and
hastily leaving the table without dar
ing to glance at the coveted dainty,
I ran np-stairs and commenced wri
ting once more.
For a week I devoted all my leis
ure to the task, then, having laid
Sonora De Verny in her lonely grave
and planted violets at her head, I
signad the manuscript " E. Santley,"
did it up and dispatched it to The
Oceanic Magazine. 1
I was not in. the habit of reading
the Oceanic-it Wr.s too profound for
me, but Miss Radford, the one litera
ry star of which our pillage boasted,
had told me thatpe:-ple-who contribu
ted to its pages always became la
mons, and famous I had determined
Fearing discovery, I had fguested
the Oceanic Editor to addresVae at
wville, a neighboring town,, a? to
Ville I pilgrimaged daily, ma^g
oafc-ofhee clerks unspeakaty
'ed by my persistent inquiri?
ters for E. Santley. At lasl
ope had begun to die away i;
my heart, thc longed-for letter came.
How proudly I contemplated the
cramped handwriting upon the en
velope, and the ugly hieroglyphic in
one corner; and how I delayed break
ing the seal that I mighu longer play
with my happiness ! But at length
curiosity got the better of me. I
opened the envelope and out fell a
letter and a bit of folded paper. The
note assured E. Santley, Esq., that
his article was-just what was. needed,
and that it threw much light upon
the question so often discussed in the
Flattering in the extreme ; but how
absurd of the editor to fancy that E.
Santley was a man, as if any mau
could possibly have written " Leono
ra De Verny !"
" Much light upon the question so
often-" I thought everybody knew
that young men were heartless vil
lains when they chose to be, and that
girls were in the habit of dying of
broken hearts. Truly people most
be innocent and unsophisticated in
that down-east village where the
Oceanic was published !
Now for the check-fifty dollars!
Why, I had not hoped to receive? hall
that sum. They must have paid jne
double rates-sure token that they
recognized my genius. " I shall net
tell anybody," I said'to myself, "I
will keep th? secret till my first novel
is published, then, if I could make
up my mind about the tulle,"-my
thoughts straying to my -new dress
and Mrs. Wilson's party.
" Where did you get the money
for buying the stuff?" queried Aunt
Lucy, sternly, as I sat in the midst
of a fleecy cloud, sewing busily,
auntie detested pretty things. " That
is myseeret," I rejoined lightly, " but
will it .not be lovely! Look, too, at
my sash and this spray. I abhor
wreaths," and I held up for her in
spection "the trifles which had reduced
my fifty dollars to five.
" When I was a girl, young women
weat to parties in done-up muslin,"
said my aunt, frowning at the sash
" Extravagant wretches !" I cried,
"Miss Nimmo charges six.dollars
apiece for doing up the Buell girls'
muslin suits ; they do not keep nice
twenty-four Louis. It is well that
.ve girls are more moderate in our
notions than young ladies were in
your day auntie."
" The Buells will bring a stranger
with them," observed my aunt, beaten
but unwilling to confess it; "a Mr.
Santley. from New York ; why do
you color so ?"
" Stooping over these long seams
makes me so warm," I answered.
"Santley, what a pretty name! I
suppose he is the propel ty of one of
the Buell girls?"
" 1 think not. Mrs. Buell spoke
of him as a distant relative-there !
Mary Anne has let a goblet fall, I
. jgust_^qgJfJt_is_onc of the best," and
auntie hurried away. ~~'
How odd that this Mr. Santley
should como here-when I chose mc
name I did not know but the whole
family wc-ie extinct before the deluge.

" Not muzzled, my dear, but iii nc

" He is a very learned person-be

-do you know what that is ?-I am
sure I have not the remotest idea,"
returned Mrs. Wilson.
" Neither have I ; BO we must
either keep out of the lion's way, or
oblige him to confine himself to
words of two syllables," I answered.
" Are all the disagreeable people in
town here to-night?"
" Mr. Santley, Miss Huso," said
Mrs. Wilson, leaving my amiable
While the stranger chatted with
Aunt Lucy, I scanned him furtively.
Thirty-five at least ; splendid head,
covered with dark clustering hair,
which the study of social science was
beginning to thin on the temples;
face, not handsome, but very expres
sive ; and lighted up by clear gray
eyes-lastly a smile sweet as a wo
man's, sweeter by far than Miss Eli
nor's. I decided to like Mr. Santley.
" Would you not like to walk
about for a few moments?" he said
turning to me when Aunt Lucy had
released him, "it is too warm for
dancing-but thatj? a selfish excuse,
I might as well confess it,-I do not
dance, and so am always sure to find
mvself stranded on tho same shore
with other ineligibles, a heavy penal

" You might still leam," I replied,
" that is, unless you were afraid of
being laughed at."
" No, indeed ! there are too many
other matters with which to busy
myself," he answered.
"You-will?" I said, making the
very remark \vhich I had resolved
7ioi to make.
" Yes, when fate compels me to ;"
V I do not know anything about
social science," I said, thinking it
best to. admit my ignorance frankly,
and not wai? "for him tb''disc/over it,
j " we had moral. science, .years and
'.i\yeats ago at school when I was a
n ?/irl,"-I saw him smile, and I stopped
abruptly, feeling that I had blunder
" Pardon my rudeness, Miss Ense,"
said he, " but you spoke as though n
century had intervened between you
and youth. Go on, I beg o? yon."
""I have nothing more to say, un
less I give you biographies of tho
people here, or grow eloquent over
the scenery of Meadow Brook-which
shall it be?" I rejoined.
" The people, by all means," he an
swered, " I intend to do the scenery
pretty th )roughly, before I return
do you know Ihave been living for
monlhsin the blissful anticipation of
going fishing once more?"
, " Well, first of all, as she is nearest
to us, comes Miss Radford-the tall,
auburn-haired girl in a blue dress
she is a literary person-writes for
half a dozen magazines, and has a
novel running through tire Temped.'"
Here my listenei burst into a hear
ty fit of laughter, and I, jealous of
Miss Radford's literary fame, looked
at him indignantly. It was a long
time before he grew grave again, and
Wileri ho did, he proposed that we
should go out on to thc verandah.
" I know you think me rude, Miss
XT use,- but your remark about the
literary person who writes for the
Tempest, brought to mind a ludicrous
incident over which I have alternate
ly Etormed and laughed for a month
past-as an'atonement for my ill-be
havior I will tell you of it. ? cou
ple of months ago, I sent a manu
script to the Cecunic-it waa a paper
which I had prepared with a great
deal of care-the greater portion-of
it having been, read before the
Society; imagine my astonishment at
recei'-.'ifg, a few weeks since, a letter
from the Oceanic editor, assuring me
that my article was hopelessly bad,
absurd, and improbable in thc ex
treme-and advising me to give up
all thoughts of writing anything
more ! I was furious at what I con
sidered his impertinence, and I in
stantly dispatched him a letter de
manding the return of my manuscript.
It was sent-rolled up at that-think
of the man's heartless malignity. I
opened'it and saw ' on the lille page,
' leonora De Verney ; a Story of a
Girl's Heart, by E." Santley."
What good fortune had broughtons
into this friendly darkness, where my
scarlet cheeks coul 1 not be seen ?
" I made an attempt to learn the
harrowing fate of Miss Leonora, and
waded through such sentences a?
these : ' Gerald my love, my idol !
how can I tread the barren desert ol
life without thee ?' ' Day and night
was I haunted by the memory of her
Hewing golden hair, her shining viole!
eyes, and angel smile!' And then
that I should haye been accused ol
writing the stu fl'-that was ' adding
insult to injury."
" What, did you do about it ?" 3
asked, trying to speak carelessly, bul
Jiearjng my voice tremble.
"I laid the manuscript away,' and

TK? became editor, dug. ii? apemptea
to set matters right with tko othei
Santley, but failed io receive any re
Verney. Cut to get rid of him wai
not possible, unless I resorted fri un
amiability ; and I kept all ray pep
peri ness for Aunt Lucy. So \v<
walked and talked, or rather hi
talked,' and later in the evening, '.
watched him devour oysters anc
chicken salad with astonishing appe
tite, while the je ly with winch
trifled fairly choke?l_?--Hfr? all
j gflr;,^-cT?lled upon to suffer so ? I
wondered, trying to put Yes and No
into the places where they belonged,
as Mr. Santley went on talking.
" I shall see you again ?" ques
tioned Mr..Santley at parting, and
Aunt Lucy responded graciously,
while I said under my breath, " Never,
if I can'avoid it I"
In pursuance of my resolution I
shut myself up for three days, seeing
nobody but my aunt, who cheered
me with offerings of sage tea, and
disquisitions on the.weak constitution
and general good-f'or-riothingness of
the girl iflf the period. At the end
of that time I came forth from seclu
sion, trusting that Mr. Santley
having fished to his heart's content
had bidden Meadow Brook adieu,
and gone hack to the study of social
But, as I sat on the door-step that
evening, over cherries and watching
the kitten unravel Aunt Lucy's knit
ting, to my horror I saw Mr. Santley
coming up .the walk. Seating him
self beside me and taking a great
handful of cherries, he proceeded to
tell me what be had been doing for
the past three days-growing enthu
siastic over his good luck in fishing.
" Yes, he could be happy, while I
was forced to f-pend the hours shut
up in a dark room, making faces at
the wall." I thought inconsiderately,
and quite forgetting that I had shut
myself up of my own free will and
I tried, in a weak way, to snub
him, but sage tea^had made me less
evil-minded than usual, and so tue
effort was a failure.
" I shall spend ray entire vacation
in Meadow Brook," he remarked,- as
he rose to go, and, hearing, I resigned
myself to my fate, and seconded
Aunt Lucy's invitation as warmly a?
though I were not Mr. Santley's mor
tal enemy. .
Bo he camer-unfailingly as th?
BunrisGi We walked1 and rode to

wondered kindly whether Mr. Sant
ley, who ?eeraed a sensible person,
would be insane enough to marry
Elinor Huse. Elinor wondered too,
occasionally, whether he had 'any
such intention, and hoped that he
had, because in that case, she could
refuse him and thus gain her wished
for revenge. You see the fato of poor
Leonora De Verney still haunted her.
" The last of paradise for nm," Mr.
San Hey said one October afternoon,
sitting down in-hie accustomed place
on the door-step, and throwing.his
hat over the kitten. " How does that
feel. Othello? Ey the way, Miss
Elinor, why did you give the little
imp such an imposing name ?"
"Aunt Lucy did it," I replied.
" ?She thought Othello was a scriptu
ral cognomen," and my aunt looked
daggers at me over the visitor's head.
" Why do you talk of this being
the last of paradise ?" I asked, hop
ing to hear that he had come to say
" Because, to-morrow I must return
to New York," he answered, looking
very grave. Aunt Lucy rose, mut
tering something about toa. "Don't
go, auntie," I said, sweetly. " I want
you to help entertain Mr. Santley."
So she seated herself again, and sud
denly Mr. Santley grew unaccounta
bly sulky, and refused io respond to
my well-meant attempts at conversa
tion. After sitting half an hour he
rose to go, and, having shaken hands
with Aunt Lucy, asked me to walk
down to the gate with him.
' This is not a final parting, is it
Elinor?" he said, when we were be
yond my aunt's hearing.
" Not if you find yourself longing
for Meadow Brook fishing next sum
mer," I replied, looking at him with
He gave me a displeased glance.
" I thought-"
? " What?" I asked.
' Nothing, nothing," he answered
" Are you not glad the mosquitoes
have almost gone," I said, slapping at
one which had ventured out, forget
ful of the lateness of the season.
" Good-bye, Miss Huse," very crisp
ly, and the gate closed with em
" lt is surprising how we can hate
people whom we really like, Othel

and walking back to the now lonely
" But I am glad Mr. Santley has
gone," I remarked to myself that
night, in the solitude of my own
room. Yes, I was so much rejoiced
at his departure that-I cried myself
in'.o an astonishing state of ugliness,
and made my aunt, who attributed
the metamorphosis to a cold-recom

But I must pay Mr. Santley fifty
dollars, the money which I had used,
believing it rightfully mine-till that
was (done I could not dismiss h
from my mind. So once more ni?

Elinor-there are better things than
" Auntie, if I am consistent in any
thing it is in my abhorrence of mis
sionaries," I said; "besides, there is
nothing better in this world than
new bonnet, and next spring I inteud
to have two, in order to recompense
myself for this season's self denial."
The fifty dollar bill was enclosed
in a sheet of paper, upon which I had
written, " To Mr-. Santley, from the
author of 'Leonora DJ Verney,"'
then the whole was slipped into an
envelope and taken by myself to the
Post Office. After mailing it, I walk
ed slowly homeward, stopping to flat
ten my nose against millinery' win
dows and speculate on the possibility
of amending and revising my old
bonnet;- then, when I was thoroughly
chilled, I went home and gave-myself
un to the pleasure of abhorring Mr.
Santley-and wishing I had my fifty
dollars, or rather his, back again.
A week later, I sat on the rug in~|.j
front of the fire, resting myself after
a desperate conflict with my obstinate
old bonnet, which, in spite of all my
endeavors, had defied all chance and
Looking into tho blazing grate, I
fell to thinking of Mr. Santley-it
was shameful, bot I could not help it,
for, try all I might, my abhorrence
