There's something in the name of Kate
Which many will condemn;
t But listen now while I relate
The traits of some of them.
There's deli-Kate, a modest dame,
And worthy of your love;
She's nice and beautiful in frame,
As gentle as a dove.
As we may well suppose;
Her fruitful mind is ever bent
On telling what.she knows.
There's intri-Kate, she's so obscure,
'Tis hard to find her out;
For she is often very sure
To put your wits to rout.
Prevari-Kate's a stubborn maid,
She's sure to have her way;
The calling, contrary jade,
Objects to all you say.
There's.alter-Kate, a perfect pest,
Much given to dispute;
Her prattling tongne can never rest;
You cannot her refute.
There's dislo4Kate, is quite a fret,
Who fails to gain her point;
Her case quite unfortunate,
And sorely out of joint.
Equivo-Kate no one will woo,
The thing would be absurd;
She is so faithless and untrue.
You cannot take her word.
There's viodi-Kate, she's good and true,
And strives with all her might
Her duty faithfully to do,
And battles for the right.
There's rusti-Kate, a country lass,
Quite fond of rural scenes ;
She likes to ramble through the grass
And through the evergreens.
Of all the maidens you can find,
There's none like edu-Kate
Because she elevates the mind
And aims at something great.
THE MH ON THE LBFT#
"The gentleman on the left Kate
-do you know him ? He has
looked frequently towards you."
"Who is it ?'
"I cannot tell. I have not seen
"Suppose you look ?"
"I prefer not. I came to see the
play. Is not Helen Fauchet
So, so. I wish you would tell
me who that gentleman on the left
is. I am sure he knows you, and
he is strikingly' handsome."
i"At present the stage interests
me. Besides, if men are rude
Senough to stare at strangers, there
~is no occasion for us to imitate
"Your ladyship has io curiosi
"Not any; I exhausted it some
"Her ladyship was not telling
the truth; she was intensely cu
:rious, but it pleased her at, the time
to pique the honorable Selina Dor
.set. That strange sympathy that
makes us instantly co nscious of a
familiar glance, even in a crowded
'building, had solicited her regard
just as Selina had advised her of it.
If she had not been asked to look
toward her left, she would proba
bly have done so; -as it was, she
resolutely avoided any movement
in that direction.
The play finished in a tumult of
applause. Lady Kate Talbot for
got everything in hei- excitement,,
and as she stood up flushed and
- trembling, she inadvertently turned
toward the left. Instantly she re
cognized a presence with which she
sought to have been familiar enough.
t The gentleman bowed with an
t extreme respect. Lady Kate ac
knowledged the courtesy in a man
dner too full of astonishment tobe
altogether gracious, and the,elabo
rate politeness of the reconition
was not softened by any glance
implying a more tender intimacy
than that of mere acquaintance.
My lady was silent all the way
home, and for some reason Selina
was not disposed to interrupt her
reverie. It did not seem to be an
unpleasant one. Kate's face had a
,bright flush on it, and her eyes held
- in them a light-a light that re
,sembled what Selina would have
called hope and love, if my lady
rhdnot benalready mare,and
nher destiny apjparently settled.
n "Selina, when you have got rid
pt of all that lace and satin, come to
'nmy room; I have something to say
-Selina nodded pleasantly. She
-was sure it concerned the gentle
Sman on the left. She had no love

Sry nor charitable, her time went

with the cold or proper Lady Tal
bot-would be of all things t4e
She was speedly unrobed, and
with her long blonde hair hanging
loosely over her pretty dressing
gown, she sought my lady's room.
Lady Talbot sat in a dream-like
stillness, looking into the bright
blaze on the hearth. She scarcely
stirred as Selina took a large chair
beside her, and scarcely smiled
when she lifted one of her loosened
curls, .and said, "What exquisite
hair you have, Kate! True golden."
"Yes, it is beautiful. I know
that, of course."
"Of what are you thinking so in
"Of the gentleman on our left to
"Ah, who is he? He seemed to
"Ie ought to know me much
better than he does. le is my
husband, Lord Richard Talbot."
"It is true."
"I thought he was in Africa, or
Asia, or -Europe, or somewhere at
the end of the world.'
"He is now in England, it seems.
I suppose he just arrived. I have
not seem him before."
"Where is he staying, then ?"
"I presume in the left wing of
this mansion. I notice there are
more lights than usual in it to-night.
His apartments are there."
"Now, Kate, do tell me all, dear,
You know I love a romantic love
affair, and I am sure this is one." 4
"You were never more mistaken,
Selina. There is no love at all in
the affair. That is the secret of
the whole position. I thought that
as you were staying here this week,
r.nd might probably see or meet I
my lord, it was better to make all
clear to you. People are apt to as
sociate wrong with things they do
"To be sure, dear. I suppose
Lord Richard and you have a little
disagreement. Now, if I could on
ly do anything toward a reconcilia
tion, I should be so happy, you
"No, Selina. there has been no i
quarrel, and you can do nothing at
all between xis. I don't want you
to try. Just be kind enough to ig
nore the whole circumstance. Lord
Richard and I understood each
other nearly four years ago."
"But it is not four years since
you married ?" <
"Just four years yesterday."
"Aud my lord has been away-"
"Three years, eight months and i
eighteen days, so far as I know."
"Well. this is a most extraordina- I
ry thing, and very, very bad, I i
must say." <
"Jt might easily have been much <
sadder. I am going to tell jou
the exact truth, and I rely upon 4
your honor and discretion to keep
the secret inviolable."
"My dear l,fate, I would not
name it for the world."
"Listen, then. One night, when
I was scarcely 7 years old, my i
father sent for m to his study. It 1
had been known for months that he
was dying. He was the only
creature. that I l.ad to love, and I
loved him very tenderly. I must
mention tlyis also, for it partly ex
plains my conduct that the idea of
disobeying him in anything had]
never presei.ted itself to me as a
possibility. This night L. found
with him his life long friend, the
late Lord Talbot, and the present:
lord, my hu band. I was a shy,
shrinking girl, without any know
ledge of dress or society, and very
timid and embarrassed in my man
ners. Then my father told me that
it was necessary for the good of
both houses that Richard and I
should marry, that Richard had
consented, and that I must meet a
few friends in our priyate chapel at
7 o'clock in .the morning a week
later. Of course these, things were
told me in a very gentle manner and
my dear father, with many loving
kisses, begged me as a last favor to
him to make no objection."
"And what did Lord Richard'
"I glanced at him. He stood
near a window looking out over our
fine old park, and when he felt my
glance he colored deeply and bowed.
Lord Talbot said rather angrily,
"Richard, Miss Esher waits for you
to spealg. Then Lord Richard
turned toward me and said some
thing, but in such a low voice that
I did not catch its meaning. "My
son says you do him a great honor
-and pleasure," exclaim~ed Lord
Talbot, and he kissed me and led
me toward the unwilling bride
"Of course I ought to have hated
him, Sehina, but I did not. On the
contrary, I fell desperately in love
with him. Perhaps it would have
been far better for me if I had not.
Richard read my heart in my face,'
and despised his easy conquest.
As for me, I suffered in that weak
and torturing suspense of a timid
school girl in love. I dressed my
self in the best of my plain, un
becoming, childishtoilkt, and watch
ed wearily every day .for a visit
from my promised husband; but I
saw no more of him until-our wed

me, and also a London maid, and I f
think, even then. my appearance t
was fair enough to have somewhat z
conciliated Richard Talbot. But t
he scarcely. looked at me. The r
ceremony was scrupulously and v
coldly performed, my father, aunt v
and governess being present on my c
side, and on Richard's his father
and his'three maiden sisters.
"I never saw my father alive r
again, he died the following week, e
and the mockery of our wedding u
festivities at Talbot oastle was 1
suspended at once.in deference to s
my grief. Then he came to Lon-- I
don, and my lord selected for his a
r>wn use the left wing of the house, v
and politely placed at my disposal b
all the remaining apartments. I 3
considered this an intimation that I m
was not expected to intrude upon N
Iis quarters, and I scrupulously n

rrom the first that attempts to win C

an ease and nonchalance that would

her into a confidential mood, but
she said, smilingly, "My lord, the

congratulated each ether; we need
not undeceive it."
He was dreadfully piqued and
the pique kept the cause of it con- E
