John Everett had known .Elinor ever
since he could remember; they had gone
to school together; he had cpelled above
her and refused to take first place; he had
envied the more daring boys who walked
home with her through the green lanes be
neath embowering elms, as if it were the
most commonuface thine to do in the world
while he, with his heart in his mouth, tried
o find couraire for the effort, and found
himself left behind for his pains. Later
when they first began to go out in the world
together, what tortures she endured when
she danced with some handsome stranccr :

Carl Hughes took, her off In his wnerry

ing past poor John, waiting on the wharf
in the shadow or some wareaouse to nee
them landed and safe! Life began early
to seem like a pleasant difficulty to him.
He was always wondering; what she was
doing; how she passed the long days while
he was busy in the counting room ; what
were her every-day thoughts, her dreams,
and did he hold anv share therein. Sunday.
too, soon became the first of hol idays, for
then he was sure to see ner.. tiis iauier-s
square, old-fashioned pew almost faced the
eonffTeration. and not a breath or a blush
the flutter of an eyelid or the ghost of a
dimple, was lost upon him. In the mean
time it is probable that Elinor , was not
blind. Glances are easily interpreted; ac
tions sometimes speak louder than words.
There is little doubt, when Carl Hughes
or any of the others stepped out or a con
cert or lecture room and offered an arm to
her door, but she understood that John had
been waiting and wavering and longing for
the lavoraoie moment in wnicu tu antici
pate this attention, which moment would
have arrived, sooner or later, but that Carl
intent on his Dumosc and unhesltatinir in
its performance, had pushed his desperate
way through the crowd to her side, &nd
had gained the day befoi e John bad thought
of losing it.
But by insensible degrees one outgrows
this sort of faint-heartednees, and pushes
out before Carl Hughes and the indulgent
crowd .and wins the prize for the nonce,
but delays to take the next decided step in
the ricrlit mtth. And so it was with John.
One day he heard that Elinor bad given
away her heart to lir. Dcnorinandy, now
on his travels. However much pain this
announcement gave John, faint-heartedness
which, perhaps, was only an exaggerat
ed appreciation of the object of desire-
became a something superfluous, since, if
he had already lost her, why should he
fear ? It is at this stage that one ceases to
doubt and begins to suffer. So, now that
he had nothing to lose, he went in and out
of her presence, with a fatal fascination, as
bold as a lion. He asked her hand in the
dance without a qualm; he took her out to
supper or down to dinner, as the case might
be; he strolled with her on the moon-light
ed terrace: he played melodies ol his ow
composition upon the flute; he even ven
tured to take her in his own wherry down
the dazzlinc reach of the river; and though
he failed tu entangle, himself among the
ribbons of the uiarshc , yet the wherry
sprung aleak, and while he pulled home
against the tide as it seemed to him he
had always been doing Elinor bailed the
boat with her slipper, which he begged
when they were safe ashore, and the clip
per of no further use to the owner.
"I should like to keep it myself," she
said, "as a memento of the day in which
we made shipwreck together; but you may
One day he 'happened to say something
about the time when Mr. jjenorniandy

her brows; "what should possess him to

"The rieht of possession."

"Excuse me; but I thought I heard

with their own anairs to renark the ab

stood the situation wnen they turned back
to where the boat had been moored and
found the tents struck and the beach lonely
and deserted, except for sttne bare-footed
children gathering drift-wood, and a flock
of wind-birds daring the waves. The after
noon was just melting into the tender at
mosphere of early twilight, when all things
wear an unreal aspect, ana naii-guessea
stars sift themselves throuirh the gloom.
and the radiance from the nether half of
the sphere from the morning world
seemed running over into this along the
horizon's brim. For away a sail picked

them and waved his hat, but the wind blew
his voice down bis throat, and the gay rev

"What shall we dor" asked Elinor.
"How aliall wt reach home?"
'The Kods helo those who helo UrVi-

But fortune was not to be severe with
John for one neglect of opportunity, and
meant to oner him greater inducements
and more tempting chances. Elinor's
father awoke one morning and found him
self bankrupt. Somewhat later John went
to purchase a pair of gloves, in which to
worthily pay his respects to his love, when
who should step forth behind the counter
in wait uwin uia utuiuiu uut umut uci

heart: all his desire was leaping up, and
shaping itself into tender words. What

"Isn't it a little droll," said she, hiding

"Confound my folly!" he thought walk
ing away. "Why didnt I say it? She
looked almost as if she ex Dec led Burnetii in?.
I gave her the right to. But did she care
to listen ? To be sure, the place was un.
fortunate; but people have made and heard
proposals in ball-rooms, in crowds, before
this at street corners, and at book-stalls.
There was Captain Wiles: he proposed to
Mary on board or the cars, anu, not under
standing him, she cried: 'What? So he
had to scream it all over again, and the
train stopped at a station before he finish
ed. He must, have been a plucky fellow !
They say that women do half the courting,
but bless me if I've had any help in this
atlair! And, at this rate, it's like a snail':

they get on ! It must be tiresome standing
behind a counter all day, with the Guilford
pride on her shoulders, anu tne home
troubles tugging at her heart If I had only
asked her before the breaking of the bubble.
But now it would seem like taking advan
tage of her circumstance and if I could
not endure that she should consent to marry
me from pity, how much less from pru
dence? Yet if she cares for me But
how am I to know ? She is not likely to
tell me without being asked, and why
should I ask her unless I am certain T"
And thus, while he let the occasion slip
by, while he llawled and perplexed him
self, the firm in w4iich he was Junior paru
nerreauired his presence in Europe to
tablish a branch house. He went to bid
Elinor good-bye-perhaps to say something
more earnest He would not tell ; he could
not count upon himself nor his moods. He
found her in a dark, narrow street of the
city, where the sunshine was only a mcrn
inir visitor of the most ceremonious kind;
in rooms whose shabliiness smote him to
the heart, hhe toil before a flickering: flame
and embroidered in linen. He understood
that by this means she was eking out her
insufficient wages. But otherwise she was
the same being whom he had known in
luxury. The blush had not deserted her
fair cheek, the dimple still hid there; the
eyes were as radiant with light and spirit
the expression as enchanting, the yoice as
liquid and full of soft, lingering tones and
bewitching accents, as in the brightest oavs
or her prosperity, iney lamea aouut nis
iourncy, the siirbts he was to see, the
sounds he was to hear; and bhe sighed and
said, "Oh, I wonder if I shall ever go to
Europe!" with that wild hope wnicn most
of us long to realize. They were sitting
together upon a tete-a-tete, a relic of past
magnificence He bad been looking at her
embroidery, and when he rare it back
their hands touched, and lingered almost
lovmelv. The words were on his lips.
"Willvou go to Europe with me, Elinor V
"Will you," he faltered; "will you you
will lorget me, t suppose, as soon aa i ara
gone. Uut ot sight, out oi mina :
"If you wish me to forget you, I will,"
"And ir 1 do not wish itr-
"Ah. I cannot promise ; you are to be ab
sent a whole year."
IT she could not promise to remcmuer
him a year, wits it likely that she would
promise to love him a lifetime?
So he went to Europe and tried to for
get himself in the details of business; to
satisfy himself with the nublic galleries and
gardens, with art and nature in holiday at
tin. He visited the Ut tie Glace, and
dwelt in the shadow of the Matlerhorn, and
heard the mountain echoes reverbrating
upon the mountain air. Hut to whom
could he confide all his line thoughts?
Who could respond to his moods with such
perfect sympathy as Elinor? naif the
charm of travel was lost without her. At
the Lake of Como he full in with an elder
ly gentleman, solitary like himself.
"Ah," said he, '-thin traveling alone is
almost like staying at home."
.. . . , 1 : 1 . , ;
Anu w uy, sir, uiu juu nut uruig your
wife?" ventured John.
"Because I was a fool once. I have no
wile. Twenty-five years ago I was iu love.
but I was, at the same time, too great a
dunce to tell her so. Young man, if you
ever chance to fall in love, lose no time in
letting her know it Don't deter speak
"And if she "
"2io matter what she answers. You w ill
have doue your duty ; you will have noth
ing with which to reproacn yourscir."
John left the Lake of Como at once.
Ho traveled night and day to London, and
embarked for home. He went to the
shabby by-street where he had left Elinor;
out the Dird naa nown. .nr. uuiuoru,
with that happy faculty some men have
for always coming to the surface in good
condition, had speculated him sell into
another fortune during John's absence,
and was only to be found on Queen's street,

The difficulties thatmav beset the chihl.
ren of Garribaldi in the settlement of his
estate alter his death are being discussed
by mo Italian Journals, which, with their
usual fondness for hyperbole, describe the
heroic old General as a father whose child
ren are not his own, and a husband with
out a wife. Garibaldi has six children.
They are the offspring of three women,
with only two of whom he has lived, yet
strangely, it was only to tue woman with
whom he never co-habited that he was
married. At the time of his ' contest
against the Dictator Kosas, in
La hMata. he met a woman of
Brazilian birth called Anuita. She was
married, but falling in love with the ad
venturer, she left her husband, and, after
accompanying Garibaldi . through his
most perilous experiences in South Amer
ica, she followed him to Europe. She
was the mother of Garibaldi's eldest three
children. Menotti, IUcciotti 'and Mmc
Canzio. She died in the forest of Raven
na when Garibaldi was fleeing from
Rome, alter the arrival there of the French
troops in 184U. Ten years later, at the
time of his campaign in Lombardy. Gari-

unwisely one of Garibaldi's aidade-camp,
a young onicer named uonmmi. when
the Italian troops moved away from Co
mo, her father's home, she determined to
ioimw lier lover. She went after him on
horseback, and her father went after her.
When the Marquis found her she told
him she had conceived for Garibaldi
passion she could not govern.' Garibaldi
was informed of this declaration, and as
he was pleased with the girl, he married
her. The marriage ceremony was little
more than over when the young woman
informed her husband that she loved his
aid-de-catnp,. Confrimi, that there was a
good reason why he should be her .hus
band, and that she had lied to her father,
when she told him she loved Garibaldi,
because she was afraid to tell him she
loved Confrimi, to whom, she felt certain,
he would never let her be married. Gari
baldi solved the difficulty thus raised by
leaving his young wife at once... He is
said by some never to have seen .her
again. Others assert that several year
later, she called on him and implored bim

Aa Old Fanhloned Reaper,
One day just before harvest an Ohio
fanner went to Cincinnati to buy a reaper.
A delighted agent collared the granger
aud drugged him into his warehouM!. As
tucy walked down the well stocked room
the farmer, in a meditative mood. Quoted
the line. "There is a reaper whose name is
IJeatu," but before be could start the sec
ond line the agent broke in ; "Ah, yes, I
know it sir: I know it like a book. We
handled Uiat reaper oue season, sir, and
I'd take $5,000 out of my iiockct this
minute if it could undo the damage that
reaper did our business in that one year.

It'b an old. old style, sir. and you don't

just interrupted him to say that he knew
the reaper ue mentioned was an old style,
but he was certain it did its work well,
though, all the same. It wasn't the kind
be wanted, and he had no idea of buying
it to work on his farm. He bought anotb.
er reaper, blood-thirsty as a Cossack,, and
red as an autumn sunset and the agent
told how nicely he sold a reuper to an old
fellow lust dead set for some old machine
that he had never heard ot In-fore. West

he translates from the DiariA de Koticias:
At the distance or one kilometre from the
village of Fratel, near Niza (i. c. on the
frontier of Spain and Portugal, near Uie
town of . Portalegre) Theresa" Maria, who
was carrying ber husband's d:nner to him
in the neius, was toiu by a mile shepherd
boy that a wolf was prowling about the
place. Wishing to sec one for the first
time in her life'sbe put down her basket
and climbed, up to a high place to
which the boy directed her. - There
she saw the animal in - the act
of deslrovinir a lamb. : Tho shep
herd boy began shouting and throwing
stones to see whether it would -let go its
prey; and the wolf in its fury then attack
ed Uie poor litle fellow, jumping up at his
face, tearing the flesh trom his jaws ana
throwine him upon tho frrotind. The

ger, in an impulse ot heroic scu-aevotion.
ran on the won wholly unarmed, seized
light hold of hint, mid then, after a strug
gle, c-mtrived to blind hint with a stone,
and eventually killed him. Meanwhile
the boy whom she had rescued ran, wound
ed as be was,. to seek help in the village.
While several villagers were coming up,
armed with guns, stones and sticks, ato
kill the beast and save the woman from
its fangs, she was returning to the village
covered with blood, and with her
arms, bauds and face terribly wounded,
She said thbt at times she was on
the point of beinsr overcome, but con.
trived to keep the animal's throat in the
close hold of her left arm. whilo hitling
mm hard on Uie-head with a stone which
she was able to pick up. Sue was taken
to tuo -Niza hospital, it is with, regret
that all will ivatl what I have now unfor
tunately to add. Uiat exactly a month af-
lerwards the poor creature died there oi
her wounds. - She has left eight children,
six of whom are very young, and a dis
tracted nusband to mourn her loss; but
she found comfort in her last sufferings,
and under Uie pain of such a parting,
from the recollection that she had given
her life for another. The English and
Portuguese have sent some 22 as a small
consolation to a poor and industrious fam

In a postscript written 'two days later

little shepherd-boy for whom the brave
woman sacrificed her life is dead also!
She was allowed to console her dyiDg
