The poor, grief-strickon German, of

An he oitered the car she was speak

814all, rosy mouth, disclosing a beauti

towards the tall stranger at the door.
"Ladies and gentlemen," spoke the
sweet voice, "this poor woman, friend

with a bewitching smile, "if any geni

In an Instant th e gallant Richard
pulied his traveling cap from his

smile, this time all his own, and com

Richard watched the slender figure

"And this I took for a clean shirt;"
and Dick held up a frilled and fluted
sack, such as do duty for more exten
sive night-dresses with ladies when
traveling. "I'd like to see Angelica
when she opens my satchel."
And Dick fell to musing, with the
sli)per perched on two fingers and the
frilled white sack spread out tenderly
upon his knees.

In an upper apartment of a hand
some mansion in St. Louis, on the
evening of the day our heroine first
made the reader's acquaintance, beau
tiful B(lle Alden, the petted and only
daughter of the house, sat contempla

tial maid was disposing upon the table
-articles taken from no less a receptacle
than Dick Marcy's traveling bag.
The cards and cigar-ease lay side by

"What's in the little silver flask,
Rosa ?" said the fair mistress.
"Brandy, ma'am," replied the maid.
"Ie can't be very dissipated, to
travel with such a little bottle. That's
in case of sickness, I suppose," re
"It's my belief"'sAid-Rosa, Who
was a shrewd girl, "that the gentleman
was a mighty nice one, else you'd not
so readily excuse the cards and the
"For shame, Rosa. All gentlemen
play euchre traveling, and every clergy
man takes a little brandy in case of
sickness," answered Belle. "And this
man was a gentleman, and a liberal
one, too, for hegave the poor emigrant
woman ten dollars. Wthat's that Rosa?"
For at that moment Rosa held be
tween her fingers a letter.
Whether it was wrong to read a
stranger's letter vexed Belle for a m(
ient, as her eyes glanced at the su
perscription and hand-writing.
"Why, of all things !" exclaimed
the delighted girl, seizing the letter.
"Why, Rosa, this is Jenny Marcy's
writing, and addressed to Richard
Marcy--her only darling brother
who was in Europe wheni we two
graduated at Madame Ritter's in
Belle read rapidly till she had reach
ed the middle of the letter, when she
burst into a merry laugh.
"IIear this Rosa," she said and she
read from the letter:
"Above all things, Dick, dlear don't
fail while in St. Louis to see my best
friend and scoohnuate, Belle Alden. I
know you will fall in love with her,
for besides being the best girl in the
world, she's a beauty and an hcil-ess,
and father's choice above all others
for his son's wife. He used to think
it over home, and hope, and, hope,
Belle would not marry before you
came home from Europe. She is full
as anxious to know you, and wears
your hair and mine in a locket father
gave her last year. Give her lots of
love anid beg of her to overlook your
many imperfections, for the sake of
her old school fellow, Jenny."
"Then this gentleman is, of course,
Miss JVenny's brother," said Rosa,
"and what will she say whmen she hears
of your having met in this romantic

Belle. "Pecrhaps her brother will

And she carefully separated the yel
low lock in the little keepsake from
the dark tress of Jenny 's and put it
backc into its p)lace alhone, while an
other locket held the bit of Jenny's.
And, somehow, Belle looked very of
ten at the wee golden curl, and she
never did so but the rest of the hand
some head sprang up beside the look;
and she would sit and contemplate
the picture her fancy wrought for her,
little dreaming the interest she was

In the fall Belle and her father
went to New York, anid the first day
after hecr arrival foeund her sitting wt
her oldl i~end who~' ;ftr thc first effn.
sive Imecting was past, sat down to
empt.y her soul.
"I amu so glad you are here this
mouth,'' Jenny said, "because I'm to
be married in October, and 1 have al
ways been crazy to have you for a
bridesmaid, and Dick is to be Harry's
best man." Bello blushed.
"But Dick has fullon hopeless, mad
ly in love I" Bello turned pale.
"Yes, I was dreadfully pi-rvoked
when lie passed through St. Louis anl

look any more like you than it does
like ie, not a bit."
"But tell me," said Belle, "is your
brother engaged to this lady."
"Engagcd ! Why, dear heart, he
don't know her name. Ie just found
some of her old cluthes somewhere.
Ile's got her old slipper under a glass
case; lie's got her night gown done
up inl lavender; he's got her gold
thimble hung on his watch chain ;
and I.do believe lie's got a hair-brush
and soine hair-pins next to his heart.
Oh, it's folly to interfere! IIe's be
yond all hope! I (lid think the ex
citement of my wedding would wean
him from it; but not a bit. He looks at
lmy new things as calmly as an oyster,
and only said-it's not kind of ine to
rcpeat it, thougl," broke off Jeniy.
"What was it he said ?" inquired
Belle, laughing now heartily. "Don't
fear for my feelings.'
"Why, he said, 'I'll stand up with
your friend, Belle, and see you safely
married; and then I'm off to winter in
Paris, I'm done with love on my
own account.' It's positively awful.'
And so Belle thought, as she looked
at her old slipper and glove lying be
neath a globe on either side of the
faithful Richard's mantJ - '
'And,' said Belle, 'since he desires
only to meet me on the morning of the
wedding so it shall be. I will be intro
duccd only as we are leaving the
house, and lie can do as he pleases
about eMtinuing the acquaintance
Belle was radiant with happiness
when she returned to her father, and
delighted his fond heart by the change,
fol-Belle had been: vvy.quiet of loto..
Jcnny and Bello shopped, and talk
ed and visited together, for the next
few days, and when the morning
arrived, and amid a bevy of beautiful
girls, Belle shone like a queen, the
bride was eclipsed, and delightfully
'0, Belle !' she said, 'I long to have
old stoical Dick see you. 11ark ! there's
his step. Come into the next room
now, and be introduced. Don't wait
till the carriages come--its's an hour
And Belle, with a beating heart,
swept through the door and'stood even
as Dick first saw her, only in place of
the gray traveling dress, a magnificent
white satin fell in rich folds about her
and about her lovely white throat lay
the turquois locket that held Dick's
golden curl. Upon the beautiful head
crowned by its chestnut hiair',a coronal
of pecarls added to the grace anid beanily
of an imiage that, shrinmed in Dick's
heart, was already an angel.
Belle did not look up, but she felt
the presence, as Richard Marcy camie,
up and was introduced to little dJenny's
old schiool-nmate. Thenm, as he held out
his hand, she raised her eyes, and laid
her tiny- pan in his, and said:
'I thmnk we had better rectify that
mistake about the travelinig-bag, Mr.

Marcy, 'why d1idn't you tell me that

It w~ouild be hard to say which of
the four that miade Jenny's bridal parny
was the ha:ppiest.that day.
Dick did not go to Paris that winter.
Hie found that St. Louis contained
more attractions than any foreign city.
But the next fall will see Dick and
Belle on their wedding tour, and he

Jesigned by U)johin. We ascond
the broad and lofty flight of' stops
in the centro building and ontor
the parlor, where we have a few
minutes to notice its great size
and admirablo adaptation to its va
rious purposes, the walls covered
with valuable pictures, and works
in bronze and other works of art
scattered about the room, all of
them acting poworfully but sitpit
V-^s, agbnts in retining and ctlti
vating the tasto. Conversation
at meals is encouraged, not re
stiained. And wisely, for it, pro
motes health and good digestion;
and since the teachers are min
gled with the pupils at the tables,
the latter are being formed to
what many girls sadly l'a-ek, the
habit of society and cdnversation.
I believe, after all, that the living
example and spirit of the head of
a school is its great clement of
p)ower and influeice in education,
if it has any. It is preminontly
so at St. Marv's. If there ever

is Dr. Simedes. A truly kind and

From ani observation of twenty

old pupils, and among them mainy
of my own) connections, hlave come
under my eye, I am hear-tily
persuaded of' the admirable r'esults
to body, soul, t.nd intellect of' the
discipline and cour-so of' education
of this noble instituItionl. One
thing at St. Mar'y's has stiruck me
forcibly-I am sorriy I cannot say
it is universal elsewheroe-and that
is a spirit of' modesity and rever
eonce in the young ladies. A por't
and flippant behavior' in the young
of that sex is especially offensive
to good (aste and imrals. But I
see nothing of' it hlere. I have
never' seen it in the graduates of
St. Mary's, but, on the contrar'y,
thlat mnodcst, dignified, self-r'e
sp)ect and tender conscientious
ness which is woman's greatest
But we must bid adieu to St.
Mar'y's. It is no scene of idleness,
and lookers on feel rebuked.
Thorol' is no stagnation hero, but
all is lif'e, oner'gy, aind sy3stemnatic
work. I must tear' myself' awvay
and iretur'n to my own duties, sin
ecroly thanking God that thor'o is
such1 a home for' the education of
our1 daughtera in tile South.. The
memories of' this visit r'etui'n to
us at our' firesido--the exhilara

br'acing air', the grace and sweet
no0ss with which 5o many youn~

growing up in mind, soul, and

breathing a healthfiul, relfning
moral atnosphere, and acquiring
the culture and fooling of ladies
by assoviation, were it nothing else;
and often arises our heartfelt ben
ediction upon St. Mary's and its
food Rector, and the prayer that
ho may long be spared to bless
the land with the fruits of' his
holy and untiring labors in the
educatiod of its daughters. All

.11ASrE AND 1LEALTL-It is not
at all wholesome to bo In a hurry.
Locomotives have been reported
to havo moved a mile ini a minuto
for short dist;nces. But locomo
tivos have often como to grief by
such great rapidity. Multitudes
in their haste to get rich are
ruined every year. The men who
do things maturely, slowly, de
liberately, are the tmen who often
C-st succeed in life. .e-ople who
are habitually in a hurry generally
have to do things twico over.
The tortoise beat the hare at last.
Slow men seldom' knock their
brains out against a post. Foot
races are injurious to health, as
are all frnis of competitive exor
cises ; steady labor in the field is
the best gymnasium in the world.
Either labor or oxerciso carried
to exhaustion, or prost'ation, or
even to great tiredlness, expressed
by "fagged ot," always does
more harm than the previous Ox
orcise has dono good. All run
ning up stairs, Iutnning to catch
up with a 'vehicle or ferry-boat.,
are extremoly injurious to every
tge, sex, and condition of life. It.
ought to he the most pressing
necessity which should induce a
person over fifty to rtun twenty
yards. Thoso live longest who
are deliberate, who"o actions are
measui ed, who never embark in
dfhy enterpriso wthoL "aeping
over it," and who perform all the
evory-day acts of life with calm
ness. Quakers are it proverbially
calm, quiOt, people, anld Quakers
are a thrifty folk, the world over.
DISUARTENERS.-It js cheap
and easy to destroy. There is
not a joyful boy or innocent girl,
buoyant with fino putrposes of
duty, in all the street full of eager
and rosy faces, but a cynic can
