perfectly. She was, liko himself, tired of

ffladly'learncd that it was her husband's
desire to reside the , whole year round at
lis beautiful estate, Linden Villa, which
was situated on the lordly Hudson, some
sixty miles above New York.

WEB. HELEN BOLTON TO MRS. MILUCF.NT
Linden Villa, Sept. 1.
" Mt Pea Millici.nt: You ask me

one third of tho area of the base;" and I
found his head had been running on that

Adieu, with much love, Helen
On the aftcrnoor. following the day on
which this private and confidential epistle
had been despatched, a handsome young
fellow apparently in uniform, was pre
sented by Mrs. Bolton to her husband, as
her cousin, Mr. Richard Reynolds of the
West Point Academy.
"My dear sir, I am very happy to see
you,"- said Bolton, shaking his (her) hand
cordially.' "I havo often heard my wife
speak of you, and desired to know you for
her sake and mine. It is a great pleasure
to meet gentlemen from a school so famous
for mathematical proficiency. I shall 'ask
your aid, at your, leisure, in the solution of
a few problems "
"0. hang mathematics!" cried the
youngster. "Here bored enough with

soldier, turning his back on Mr. Bolton,
"that you are married, Helen. Do you re
member the last evening we passed togeth

"It seems you did forget me," said the
young cadet, pointing to Bolton.
"My dear," said Mr. Bolton, "since
you have company to amuse you, I trust
you and your cousin will excuse mo. I
am calculating tho area of some irregular
solids, and I hate to lose a moment."
Mrs. Bolton gave the required license,
and trio husband vanished into his study.
"How did.I play my part, dear Helen?"
asked the cadet.
"Admirably, Millieent; but how pro
vokingly cool Henry was."
"I am piqued at his behaviour," repli
ed Milliccnt, "and will do my bost to
shake his philosophy,"

"That we will," replied Milliccnt, gai

terrible prying old thing; she'll help the
plot along by telling talcs of me to Mr.

The ladies were sitting together on the
sofa, and Millieent had her arm round
Helen's waist. Mrs. Prudence, a thin,
sharp-uoscd demoiselle of fifty, stopped at
the doorway, and uttered a little scream as
she beheld them.
"I spose I'd better not come in, mini,"
she said. "I begs your ptmlen for intru

When the table was cleared, he did not ro-
tire as usual to his study, but remained
on the field, watchful and alert. The evi
dent success of their plot redoubled the
malice of the conspirators, and when Bol
ton retired for tho night, he was a decided
victim of the green eyed monster.
"0, woman ! woman ! inexplicable rid

The next'morning he rose feverish and
unhappy, for theconspirators wishing to
make assurance doubly sure, counterfeited,
with cruel skill, tho phases of an absorb
ing mutual passion. That evening Bolton
passed shut up in his study, a prey to des

light tap at the bay window that opened
on the pi ma.

Prudence tripped away, and tapped with
her nails at the study door. Receiving no
reply, she employed her knuckles, and that
producing no effect, she openod the door
and walked in.
"Missis says as how supper's ready,
and you are wanted directly, sir."
"Tell her not to wait f.r me," replied
Bolton, without raising bis eyes from the
sheet of strange hieroglypics that lay be
fore him on the table.
"Perhaps you doscn't know as how
there's a young gentleman to ten."
"Yes, yes my wife's cousin."

"I never tells tales out of school."

ly sitting down, "that you wished the

"Well, sir, if I must speak out,'

"Umph 1 so this young gentleman had
his arm around Ilclon's waist?"
"I sen it with my own eyes, sir."
"Pshaw ! he's only her cousin. I'll go
right down to supper."
Mr. Bolton was very attentive to his
wife at tho table, but not so attentive as
tho cadet, nor did tho object of his gallon
try receive his jttH toint with the same ,

Marsay. 'ii left her to go to Boston, on
business, expecting to he absent a fort

when I found that she had gone off, no

what was the cause of this escape, when,
as good luck would have it, I found a let
ter, which she carelessly left in her dress

plained everything. Here it is."
Bolton eagerly caught the letter, the
same with which the reader is already nc-
nuainted. and perused it cnircrly. After
rending it, he handed it back to Marsay,
with a hearty laugh.
"By Jove! Ned," said he, "I'll turn
tho tables on them, and pay them for this.
Will you forgive me if I should give your
wife a thorough scare ?"
"I doubt if you can searcher," replied
Marsay, laughing. "She's ns bold a crea

On Monday morning, says our report,
