Wo turn tho author of the following dog?
gerel over to tho tender mercies of the
Ladies. We make no apologies for him, as
ho has neither youth nor age to recom?
mend hiui to clemency. We have reason
to believe that this net of his was the re?
sult of maturo deliberation. Hear what
he has to say:
As along the street 1 blundered,
Much 1 marveled, much I wondered;
Se ing sights and things that morl al
Xever saw or dreamed before;
On thc pavement came a rapping
As <>> foot-falls gently tapping,
And ? heard a muslin -flapping,
Which mv eve would fain explore,
"'Tissoraot?malo," then I muttered
I bad seen tho thing before
Only lhis.and nothing more. .
Came this female sweeping by mo;
Pcarfng sho should chance to spy inc,
Suddenly I stepped into a
Friendly, wailing, open door:
Thence I saw the lovely maiden -
Bting from some distant Aden
.VII perfumed and dry goods laden.
Piss mo ami go on before;
Naught had I todo but follow
And note down tho things she wore,
'Twas a myVtc^y to explore.
And 7 found-by close inspection
That ber haughty tipper section.
Something chance bad called a bonnet,
On its pericranium wore;
And her breast was heaving slowly,
'Neath a garment fashioned Jowly,
And ? knew tho movement wholly,
I had never seen before;
For I knew 'twas "p-teut heavers"
That this radiant maiden wore,
Only these and nothing more.
And her cheeks .vero full and rosy -
I could tell you, inter nos a
Secret that a druggist told mo
Offne color that sho wore
Yet her cheeks were, very pleasing.
But her look at me was freezing,
And s'.ie showed a sign of sneezing,
As ehe swept along before;
And sh" sneezed a pair of "plumpers"
Out at least a ard before;
O dy this and nothing moro.
Then T not iced an uncertain
Lifting of the muslin curtain.
That her fei t had deftly hidden
From my errant eyes before;
With each lift came a desire
That 'twould lift a little higher,
And at last it did aspire
Higher than 1 had seen before;
And 1 knew it was a "tilter"
That titis saintly maiden wore;
Just a "tilter" -nothing more.
And tho tilting and tho rocking
Up and down the splendid stocking,
Gartered by a bluish ribbon,
That I chanced to see she wore.
Showed mc-"twas a sight for weeping.
That a pair of calves were creeping
Out ol'place, as she was sweeping
Like a stately queen before;
Calves that she had lately purchased
From a fane y dry goods store,
Patent calves-and not much mot e.
And the fluttering and th? flapping
Of this maiden's gaudy Wrapping
fchowe-d me sights thai never mortal
Eye had dared to see before;
Sights revealed by every lifting
Of the folds of muslin drifting
'lound her, which the winds were shifting
Eye-ward, higher, moro ami more;
Sights that unto mortal vision
Never were; revealed before,
Nameless here forever more.
And while' thus her rigging fluttered,
Much 1 wondered, and 1 muttered:
''And you call this thing a woman
That is trouncing on before;
Sin- the brazen doll of fashion,
Wrappedin one tremendous passion;
Sunken from her noble station,
To the thing that goes before;
Oh! that every nlortal vision
Should such mystery explore."
This 1 muttered-nothing more.
And the thought came o'er me gushing,
"Where has gone the art of blushing
That we loved in wife or maiden.
In the saintly days of yon:?"
('all me, if von will, uncivil,
While I name her "thing of evil,"
And I wish tho very devil
Had the toggery she wore.
Ami again she were arrayed in
Dresses like her mother wore,
Vanished now forever more.

"Perfectly. By-the-ivy, now, what

Sir Richard, dryly. "In the mean?

"There is more than one candidate

"There are -hit me see," said my
uncle, calculating, "nine."

The kind old man extended hi

and the next day departed for thc ri
sidence of Mr. Crowdie.
Not being quite certain wheth<5

The party assembled on the law
was of appalling dimensions. Abor
eighteen young ladies and oneyoun
man were engaged at croquet; whil
Mr. and Mrs. Crowdie, with Alic?
the deformed, reclining on a chai
couch, looked on. Six of tho playei
eliminated themselves from tho con
pany, and came to greet me.
"Now comes thc question,
thought I, "of which of these fail
cheeked maidens have my dangeron
attractions and assiduous attentioi
proved the bane?"
Miss Mattie, with her brown, fran
eyes, was quicker than the rest, an
gave me her hand.
"It isn't you," I thought, and di
missed her gently back to her garni
Miss Crowdie followed, langhin
gaily. She had a wide, but ham

"Nor you," I thought.

Miss Laura Jane, shyly offering mo
"Doubtful-ha!" was my refiei
Miss Sophie gave me neither han
nor word, but just lifted eyes of tl
co. >r of a forget-me-not, and droppi
them again, while a slight but ri(
blush passed over her smooth chce]
"Aha!"' 1 whispered to myself.
Mr. and Mrs. Crowdie now joinc
the group. Tho lady was quiet ar
reserved, and wore a ^ort of astonis:
cd look, which was said to have bet
not always habitual with her, bi
had increased with the advent of cac
successive daughter, until the biri
of Laura Jane placed her in a concl
tion of permanent amazement,
which no languago w s apparent
adequate; for she never ?oke, exec
in answer, or in faint disclaimer
the rallies and observations porp
tually attributed to her by lier fae
tious husband. The latter was
bluff, plain-spoken man; so plain, in?
deed, that to mistake him for vulgar
would have been a pardonable erior,
hud he not prided himself upon that
very bluffness, -esteeming it an essen?
tial characteristic of the good old
count ry squiae.
"Ha, ha, hil!" was his greeting,
with a poke in the ribs, which 1 cle?
verly dodged. "Here you find us at
our daily sports, mid precious "finikin
stuff it is. No bowls, or leap-frog-,
I or single-stick now. Croquet, sir,
I croquet is the game. It's imbecile in
principle and absurd in practice. It
tends, I am told, to softening of the
brain, but, by a. wise provision of
nature, those most devoted to tho
game appear to bo endowed with a
less proportion of the organ."
"What I see before me somewhat
contradicts your theory, sir."
"Oh, my daughters are no fools. L
don't mean that. They play because
they have good ankles. Airs. Crowdio
often tells me she never saw a string
of wenches with cleaner pasterns." ;
"Oh, Philip!" said Mrs. Crowdie,
"how caji you?"
"And how is my good old friend,
hey?" continued Mr. Crowdie, put?
ting his hands behind him, and look?
ing as burly as he possibly could.
"Not married yet? Faith, 1 expect to
hear it every day. As Airs. Crowdie
observed to me, he's just the i oily I
old hov to do it!"
"()li. Philip, really-" protested
"Come, Dick the younger, if i may
call you s<>, for hang nu; if your
uncle doesn't look as young as yon,
go and take a club or mallet, or what?
ever they call it, with those impatient
hussies, and, when you want, to be
refreshed with rational conversation,
come back, as my wife always says,
"Stop one moment. Here's a girl
of mine you have hardly ever seen.
Mr. Purkiss. my darling," lie added,
tenderly leaning over her.
Alice raised herself a little, and
smiled. Such a smile-soft, bright,
saint-like-as if rather yielding than
seeking pity. I bowed, mechanical?
ly, lower than my wont, and, next
minute, found myself in the imbe?
cilities of croquet. The game, as it
chanced, came to a premature end
if, to such a sport, such an end can
be possible-those ladies not belong?
ing to the house having to seek their
respective homes. The rest dispers?
ing in different directions, it so hap?
pened that I was left alone with the
pretty Sophy. I was really astonished
at this girls beauty. Why had I
never noticed it before? lier sweet
yet timid maimer perfectly captivated
me. I was angry when the dressing
bell announced that we must part.
To my great surprise, I lound a
room prepared for me, and my .port?
manteau-surreptitiously sent, for
from the ian-unpacked. This was
a good sign. I'hurried my dressing,
thinking all thc time of Scfphy's
eye.--. A change was coming over
me. I bad always abhorred the
thought of marriage. Now tho pros?
pect gave me a thrill of delight.
