Will Harvey came from town hi

One day while sauntering rod in
land, along the charming little
'iver that wound through the in
valley, Will unexpectedly came on :
iomething that drove fishing comn
letely out of his head.w
On a mossy bauk, shaded by a

rees a conversation sprung up
hich lasted till the young lady,
iddenly remembering how long
had continued, with a blush
tught up her gypsy hat, bade
im a pleasant good day and trip
ad away lightly.
Thus began the acquaintance of
ill Harvey and Jenny Allen.
ut it was not likely to end
iere. For if Will Harvey's

ed her title, in his4eyes, to be
lled the loveliest creature in
ie world, it is quite as certain
iat her first impressions of the
indsome stranger were hardly
A formal introduction followed,
id in a little time Will and
,nny were so constantly together
iat the rural gossips began to
Ik of' their engagement as a
ing quite settled.
This was wormwood to Dick
nders and Ted Wrant. They
gan -to look askance at Will
arvey, and were only restrained
om picking an open quarrel with
ni by reflecting that he was a
-im-built, wiry fellow who
ighn't be so easily, handled, to
,y nothing of the plucky look
ere was in his keen, dark eyes.
One day Dick, at a turn of the
ne down which he was strolling,
king as usual over his bad
rtune, was met by Sarah Blake.
He felt awkward and confused,
irah had a valorious tongue and
had no ground to expect-mor
.To his surprise, however, she
et.is ciumsy greeting gracious
,for the time disposed, appa
nly, to forget past grievances.
"'ve news," she said; "news
m'd give a deal to know."
"What is. it, Sally ?" he asked
"Oh, never mind."
"Come, Sally, for old acquain
ne sake ?"
Was it a smile or a scowl she
.ve him then ? Dick wasn't
re and was beginning to trem
s again when sarah r'esumesI her
"Well, seeing it's you," she said,
don't mind telling. Jenny
len is going to elope with Will
arvey to-night. He's to be at
r ftbter's bapk garden gate at
o'clock, his face coered with a
sk mask. Whben he gives aj
w whistle, thrice repeated, she's
come out and then they'll flit
gether. Here are all the details
a note in her own hand, which
ick up after seeing lt drop
>m Will Harvey's pocket as b
ijtered down the road half an
ur since. Read for yourself."
Dick ground his teeth as his
e ran over the lines which con
md every word of Sarah's
ite men t.
"What are you going to do ?"'
ked Sarah with a provoking
olness that roused DPick's fury.
"Do ?" he growled. "I'd porn

ends onihim I"
"I can put you on a better
"What is it ?"
"D1sguie your'self as the letter

"But suppose Harvey. too, comes
for the time and we meet at
e gate ?"
"Kock him down, beat him
seless, give the signal and get
vay with the pr*ize before
"I'll do it!" cried Dick, his eyes
Lshing fiercely. "Good-by, Sal
; I'll have news for you when
next meet I"
It lackod a quarter to twelve
when Dick Sanders, bis face mask
ed, stole up to Mr. Allen's garden
gate. At the same moment a man
similary disguised approached by
another path. For an instant the
p%ir confronted each other. They
both sprang forward, striking out
with might and main. Blows
rained thick and fast. The com
batants were well matched. Af
ter a mutual hammering for ten
minutes, without advantage to
either side, they grappled and
went down together. Then they
scuffled and bit and scratched till
they rolled apart from sheer ex.
haustion and lay glaring at each
other in helpless rage. Both their
masks were torn to tatters, and
as the bright moonlight beamed
down upon their battered faces
each uttered an exclamation of
"Ted Brant!" panted the one,
"Dick Sanders I" gasped the
"I thought it was that scoun
drel Harvey!" replied Dick.
"So did I!" rejoined Ted.
A brief comparison of notes dis
elpsed that Sarah Blake, after her
interview with Dick, had had a
similar one with Ted; the result
being as above narrated, a des
perate encounter, in which each
thought he was pommeling away
at Will Harvey. The letter we
need hardly say, was amiable
Sarah's own production.
Before Dick and Ted were pre
sentable again, Will Harvey and
Jenny Allen were happily married
with the full consent of the latter's
father, who, indeed, had never op
posed the match.
Sarah Blake is still a maiden.
ADAM AND EVE'S WEDDING.
Did you ever contemplate the
poverty of' Adam when he took
Eve for better or worse ? Only
think of it. He hadn't a hat to
is head, a coat to his back, a
pair of sh oes to his feet, nor 'narry
red cent' in his trousers' pocket.
Eve brought no dowry ; she had
nothing to bestow save her love
nd affection, and as he was the
nly young fellow around it was
im or nobody. Equally as poor
s her husband, she came to him
without a bonnet or a shawl, calico

Adam wasn't afraid to invite his
wife to go on an excursion with
him through fear of having to go

was he bothered about his trunk

Eighteen thousand men are en
ga in the ernress business.
A great deal of the calling and
f twittering and my-dearing have
no more leal connection with so
ciability than the flowers and
feathers on a woman's hat have
with her head. They are purely
artificial, and tacked on by the
- milliner. There is a vast deal of
social millinery, however, which
passes for Nature's hand work ;
and people are often praised for
their fine social qualities merely
because they are adepts in the
art of saying pretty nothings by
the hour, and exhibiting them
selves in other peoples' drawing
rooms in an entertaining way. And
on the other hand, those who are
eminently social in nature and
spirit are often condemned as un
sociable because they aay little,
and do not care to exhibit them
selves and turn their hearts in
side out for other people to ad
mire. Perhaps they are deficient
in the graces of cultivated society;
they may not have the gift of
rapid utterance or repartee; they
may find it hard to intrude their
thoughts and feelings upon others
while more variable natures make
the air vocal with their incessant
buzz. Behind their reticence, and
beneath the disguise of modest and
unattractive way, .re all the ele
ment$ of the truest sociability,
which it requires but the least
penetration to discover and the fit
occasion to bring out.
Being sociable requires aome
thing more than ceaseless chatter
ing and gadding about. It re
quires the culture and expression
in all proper and helpful ways of
those thoughts and sentiments
which are' unselfish, generous,
sympathetic and humane. It means
a pervading interest in others and
the general good. It means the
lively commerce of mind, and
communication of heprt with
heart, by listening as well as
speaking ; by large respectively as
well as generous giving. And
this sociability is just what is
wanted to redeem our social inter
course and make our coming to
gether helpful, stimulative, and
Among the Multitude of sug
gestions for spending Sunday in a
profitable way, we say that Satur
day night is one of the resting
places in the journey of life, when
it becomes every man to settle his
accounts. Observe the follow
1. Settle with the world. T he
business of a single week~ is easily
review ed--its mistakes may be
easily rectified, its experience turn
ed to good account. The man of
business should some time on Sat
urday look over his books, ex
amine his outstanding debts, and
see that all is straight and safe.
This is all the mnore important if
his accounts are numerous. Great
watchfulness is required if he
would escape embarrassment and
trouble. He who knows exactly
how he stands every Saturday
night will not be likely to live a
poor man; or, if he does, he will
hard!y ever be found in debt or in
2. Settle with conscience. Let
him review his words and his ac
tions, his motives and his feelings
during the past week. if any
thing is seen to be wrong or de
fective (and who is he without
fault(?), let the remembrance of it
be carried into the next week, that
a repetition of it may be avoided.
Let him ia.prayer seek not only
forgiveness for what he has been
amiss in the past, but grace to do
better the coming week.
3. Settle with the Lord's treasury.
Every man owes constant re
turns of gratitude to the Giver~of
all good. Is it not meet to finish
the settlement of Saturday night
by reviewing all the merits of the
week, and setting apart a portion
of its profits to serve some good
cause that will promote the glory
of Him 'who gave Himself for us ?'
How much better and happier
might life be witb a down-right
honest settlement every Saturday
night ! How much brighter would
Sunday morning be ; how much
more profitable the whole danf
