Our correspondence was not in the

the most Doetical vows to eternal passion

thereby catching a very severe cold
which, the second time, gave me an attack
of rheumatism, which confined me to my
room for three days.
The third time of any trial, however, is
proverbially decisive, and I succeeded in
finding a tolerably comfortable hiding
place in a tree top overlooking the spot.
It was a very warm day. The cicadas
sang mournfully and monotonously. The
air seemed heavy and soporific in ten
dency, and, perched in my place of con
cealment, I began to doze comfortably,
when a rustle of muslin, and a song hum-1
med by feminine lips, aroused me. I
graspea the tree-trunk nervously, steadied
myself and gazed downward with all the
eyes in my head. Prepare yourself, dear

As soon as my "charmer" was gone, I

a tone of the most sardonic irony imagina
Then how glad I was that I had not
spoken to Ada Morley, in a manner to
evince mv suspicions of mv bones!
I found my uncle in his study, and, as
luck would have it, he handed me a letter
from New York. I glanced it over hasti
ly. It was from my sister, and contained
nothing of importance, unless a descrip
tion of Mrs. Smith's new dress, and Miss
Jones' old bonnet, with a running com
mentary on the rtev. John Bibiebauger s
last sermon, might be called important.
But the chance was too good to be lost, so
I put on a serious lace, signea netunieu
and hawed, and crumpling the letter up,
stri.i-k an attitude indicative ot intense
emotion of some sort or other.

uncle, lighting a rresn cigar.
"Not exactly bad," I mendaciously,
replied, "but very vexatious. I am forced
to be in New York by noon, day after to

Two days later I made my appearance
in the city, and sought in the round of
pleasures and dissipations that metropoh
tan life affords, a thorough forgetfulness
of my sentimental folly. It is not my in
tention to tell you how I fell in with a lot
of excessively jolly fellows, who were any
thing but romantic; who gave neat little
suppers, and invited neat little girls to
them; who drove neat little skeleton
wagons, behind neat little fast horses, at a
neat little fast pace ; who spent neat little
incomes in neat little periods of time, and
lived neat little lives generally. It is not
my intention to tell you how they per
suaded me to wear short hair, English
collars, and christianly habiliments. It
is not my intention to tell you of two or
three love affairs, more or less serious, in
which I Indulged, nor of the divers and
sundry experience I passed through be
fore I became one of the excessively jollv
and unromantic fellows myself. Suffice ft
that I did undergo all Uiese phased of
young manhood, and two years after the
incident with which my story opens. I
looked back upon my life at that time
with an unalterable conviction that any
man who could fall in love with a pearl
colored kid-glove no matter how dainty
or delicate must be a "spoon an unqual
ified spoon !
During these two yeais I had not once
returned to D , ncr had I experienced
anv desire to. My sister, however, had
frequently visited there, and had, malgre
Mr. Morley's and my uncle's antagonism,
become a fast friend of the formers' daugh
One morning, as I sat in my dressing
room, reading the morning papers, with
the accompaniment of my matutinal
meerscham of Latokia, my sister uncere
moniously entered, holding in her hand
a letter a very voluminous letter written
in that pretty, characterless hand that
well-educated girls always write.
"Who is it from, Pussr" said I.
"Ada Morley; what do you suppose she
is going to do V
As young girls never do but one thing
in their lives worthy of record, of course I
guessed at once.
"Going to get married."
"Yes; to your former friend. Charles
Proctor. She seems to love him very
much," said my sister, with a sigh, "and

flocks; while still others, who have made
money from a few hundred sheep, . have

the disappointments that occasionally fol.

astrous. Where sheep are handled as an
incident to general farming operations

that his sheep are a burden that is, that
they are drawing upon the other depart

the annual drafting may be confined to
full-grown wethers, and such ewes as, by
reason of age or other disqualifying

Th Paris Baby.
A baby was born into the family of
Victor Lablanc during my stay in Paris.
The newly born was dressed in a little
sacque. doubtless with a flannel shirt
under it, without any petticoats or socks,
but with its body well wrapped in a little
blankct.which was then doubled up be
hind to protect the feet, and pinned up at
the sitlcs. A thick cap was put upon its
head. It is useless to say, "We do not
put on caps; we do not confine our child
ren's feet." is not Pans the centre of the
civilized world ? But ot one little fellow
over a year old who did not work, I am
told that he had not been allowed to use
his legs soon enough. I said to the
mother that we do not pin up babies feet.

law required that the child be brought to
the Mayor's office, and its sex examined;
but the exposure was thought injurious,
and the law was modified so as to allow a
person or persons to visit it. While Victor
was absent for a shart time they came, but
did not come up, and requested that the
child should be taken to the office. So on
Sunday morning Victor gets a carriage,
and I assist him by holding the bady, and
he keeps the carriage shut up close, al
though it is the latter part ot May. The
Mayor is not in the office, but his clerk
is there ; and there is another party before

The Emerald Isle has long been famous
for producing giants. The most celebrat
ed of these was a well known O'Brien,
whom we first bear of as a great raw
youth crying in a public house because
unable to pay the bill, having been left
penniless through a quarrel with his ex
hibitor. ' A gentleman taking compassion
on him, paid his debt, and advised the
young giant to set up on his own account.
Acting on this recommendation, O'Brien
started public house in Bristol, long known
by the sign of the Giant's Castle. A
memorinl tablet in Trench ard street - T!--tnan
Catholic Chapel records his stature
as buvi-.tf : en 8 feet 8 inches. He was

Dr. Hernandez felt uncomfortable when

The recent political decapitations at the
capitol. which have turned adrift several
worthy men after years of faithful service,
unfitted for other pursuits and almost pen

applicant for office by Tom Corwin when
secretary of the treasury. "My young
friend," said Corwin, "go to the northwest,
buy one hundred and sixty acres of gov
ernment land, or if you have not the money
to purchase, squat on it; get you an ax and
mattock, put up a log cabin tor your habi

keep your conscience clear aud live in
freedom, your own master, with no one to
give you orders and without dependence
en any body. Do that, and you will be
honored, respected, influential and rich.
But accept a clerkship here and you sink
at once all independence; your energies be
come relaxed and you are unfitted in a lew
years for any other and more independent
position. I may give you a place to-day
and turn you out again to-morrow ; and
there's another man over there at the
White house who can turn me out, and
the people by and by can tum him out and
so we go. But if you own an acre of land
it is your kingdom, and your cabin is
your castle; you are a sovereign, and you

and every day of your life will assure me of
your thanks for having th js advised you."
