[From the Ohio Farmer.] THE SNOW BIRDS.
BY W. D. HOWELLS.
The lonesome gr.n-yard liatb,
A deep with silent waves
Of night-long idow m while, and billowed
Over the bidden grave.
Tbe idow birds eome In the motning,
Flocking end flattering low,
And light en the grave-yard brambles,
And twitter there In tbe mow. . ,
The Singer, so old tnd weuy,
Looks out from bit narrow room:
"Ah, reel bnt my thoughts are snow-birds,
Hunting a grave-) erugloom;
"Where all the put is buried
And dead, these msny year,
Under the drifted whiteness
Of frozen falls of tears,
"Poor birds ! that know not summer,
Nor mid, nor Dowers fair ,
Only the grave-yard bramble.
And graves, and winter air 1"
BY W. D. HOWELLS. [From "Once a Week."]
How an Advertisement got a Wife.
"Tobaooo is the tomb of lore," writes a
modern novelist ot nigtt standing; bat,
with very respeot for his authority, I beg
to say it was quite the contrary in my
oaBe.
Twenty-one years ago I was sitting by
my ljjeBido, totting up innumerable pages
of my bachelor's house-keeping book,
taking ezeroise in arithmetic on long
columns of "petty oash" comprising
items for carrots and Bath-bricks, metal
tacks and mutton chops until, tired and
wearied, I arrived at the sum total, and
jerked the book on the mantel-piece.
Nearly at the same time I plaoed my
hand in the pocket of my dressing-gown,
drew out a leather-case, and lit aprinoipe.
Well, haying lit the principe, 1 placed
my feet on the fender and sighed, ex
hausted by my long job of domestic
accounts. I was then in business 'twas
a small wholesale business then, 'tis a
large one now yet one morning's totting
of carrots and Bath-bricks, of metal tacks
and mutton chops, would tire me a
thousand times more than twenty-four
hours of honest ledger-work. I sighed,
not from love, but from labor, for, to tell
you the truth, I had never been in love.
Is thisjto go on forever? though, 1, as I
took my third whitf and looked dreaiuly
through tho thin smoke as it ascended
between me and a Wee print of the cap
ture of Gibraltar whioh hung over the
chimney piece. Am I to spend my prime
in totting up parsnips and oomputing
carrots, and controlling washing bills'?
I sighed again, and in the act, off flew the
button of my neck band, as though some
superior power had seasonably sent the
accident to remind me of my helpless
ness. The button settled the business; though,
as it slipped down inside my shirt, and
passed with its mother'-o-pearl coldness '
over my heart, it for a moment threatened
to chill my matrimonial resolution. I
pitied my own lone state, find pity, we
know, is akin to love. But how was the
matter to be accomplished? Most men
at my age would already have adjusted
their inclination to some object; so that
having made up their mind and counted
the cost, little more would have remained
to be done than to decide upon the day,
and lay bold upon the license. This,
howover, was not the case with me. 1
had been too much ocoupied, too idle, or
too indolent to devoto the time or make
tho effoit to "form an attachment." It
was through no disinclination or difficulty
to be pleased; for had any young lady of
moderato agreeable powers taken the
trouble, she might have married me long
re then, i should even have been
grateful to her for taking the trouble off
my hands, but was too bashful to adopt
the initiative.
I was a bashful man. This weakness
came from the same cause as my Uncle
Toby's namely: a want of acquaintance
with female society, which want arose
from another cause in my case, namely:
too elose an application to business.
Accordingly I thought of an advertise
ment; yet with no practical design of
doing business, but as I persuaded
myself, for a joke. So I soratched with a
pencil on the back of a letter, tbe follow
ing: w anted wife. jn one but prinoi
pals need apply. The advertiser does not
require cash, but only a companion. lie is
six-ana-twenty, ana, urea of single, be
thinks he can settle down to married life.
As men go, he believes he has a moderate
share of temper, and want of time is bis
only reason for having recourse to the
newspapers. He has enough means for
himself nnd a second party) and is wil
ling to treat at once, lie is quite aware
that a great many attempts to convert his
honest intentions into an extravagant
joke will be made, but be warns all rash
intruders. If he finds a man hardy
enough to make sport of his affections,
he will thrash him if a woman, ho will
forgive her. Ue has a heart for tho sin
core; a horsewhip for the impertinent.
In either case, all applications will be
promptly attended to, if addressed to P.
P., to the office of this paper."
I felt proud of my composition, and
puunu n-wnj mj pruiuipe wiia a vague
glee in anticipation of something com
ing out of it. I bod no very great idea
that anything but fun would result; and I
certainly had not the slightest notion of
involving myself in a porsonal collision
witrr any one. bcul toe presentiment
mat ic was not aostinea to be all a bar
ren joke, pressed upon me. On Saturday,
the advertisement appeared, and I heard
its style convaaeed by all mv friends, and
it was jokingly suggested by more than
: one that I was the domestically destitute
. individual who nut it forth.
On Monday morning I sent a bov to
the nowspaper office for P, P.'s letters". I
expeoted he might be followed by norai
curious and inquisitve persons, so I told
him on his way bock to call at a bach-
' elor neighbor's of mine for a book. The
trick told. The lad was followed by
somo persons who never lost sight of
him until they ran bim to my frrend s, and
then thov went baok and announced that
he was the advertiser. I thus discharged
in full one or two practical jokes which
my neighbor had played on me. The an-
' swers were of the usual oharactor sev
eral socking to elicit my name, and still
more suggesting places of meeting, where
I. was to exhibit myself with a flower in
" my button-hole, and a white bandkerohief
in my hand. One only looked like busi-
'- ness. - It was from a lady, who proposed
An ipterview in a neighboring oity, abont
forty miles north. She said there was
something so frank ' and straightforward
in my advertisement that she was con
vinced it was toal, and she could rely
upon my keoping her name seoret, if
alter we met nowing onus ui we . mcair
ing. She would, therefore, see me at the
, at, on a oertain day, and
if actual approbation did not follow the
interview, why there was no harm done.
Most people would have put down this
as a trap to give me a'jburney for noth
ing. I did not "'X presentiment im
pelled me to acoept and keep the engage
ment. : v
This was in the old coaohing days,
when a man had time to make an ao
auaintanoe in forty miles, not as now.
when you are at vour journey's end
before you have looked round your com
pany in a railway carriage. There were
but two inside myself and a pleasant,
talkative, honest-faoed elderly gentleman.
Shv and timid in female society. I was
yet esteemed animated and agreeable
enough among my own sex. We had
no trouble, therefore, in making ourselves
agreeable to one another, so muoh so, that
as tne coacn approaonea i , ana tne
old gentleman learned that I meant to
stop there all night, he asked me to waive
oeremony and have a cup of tea with
him after I had dined at my hotel. My
"fair engagement" was not till next day,
and, as I liked the old gentleman, I ac
cepted his offer.
After my pint of sherry, I brushed my
hair and went in search of my ooaoh
companion and my promised cup of tea.
I had no difficulty iu finding him out, for
be was a man of substance and some im
portance in the place. I was shown into
the drawing room. My old friend re
ceived me heartily, and introduced me to
his wife and five daughters. "All spin
sters, sir," said he; "young ladies whom
an undiscriminating world seems disposed
to leave upon my hand."
"If we don't sell, papa," said the eldest,
who, with her sisters, seemed to reneot
her father's fun, "it is not for want of
puffing for all your introductions are ad
vertisements. At the mention of this last word, I felt
a little discomposed, and almost regretted
my engagement for the next day, when
that very night perhaps, my providential
opportunity had arrived.
I need not trouble my readers with all
our sayings and doings during tea, suffice
it to say, that l iouuu I a em a very pleas
ant, friendly family, and was surprised to
nna 1 lorjtot all my shyness ana timidity,
encouraged by their good tempered ease
and conversation. They did not inquire
whether I whs married or single, forwhere
there were five young unmatcd dutigh
ters, tho question might Heem invidous.
I, however, in the freedom of the moment,
volunteared the information of my bach
elorhood; I thought I had no sooner, com
municated the fact thnn the girls passed
round a glance of arch intelligence from
one to tho other. I cannot tell you how
odd I folt at the moment my sensations
were between pleasure ana contusion, as
a suspicion crosed my mind, and helped,
I felt, to oolor my cheek, Presently, how
ever, the eldest, with an assumed indiffer
ence which cost her an effort, asked
where I was staying.
"At tho hotel, answered with, some
embarrassment.
It was with diffieultv thev restrained
a laugh; they bit their lips, and I had no
longer a suspicion I was certain. So,
after having some musio, when I arose
to depart 1 mustered courage, as I bid
them goed-bye, to say aside to the eld
est: "Shall P. . P. consider this the inter
view?" Ablush of conscious gilt, I should
rather say innocenoe, told me I had sent
my random arrow to the right quarter; so
I pressed the matter no further at that
moment, but did her hand.
1 remained in at my hotel next day,
until an hour after the appointed time,
but no one made their appearanoe.
"Then," thought I, brushing my hair and
and adjusting my cravat, " since the
mountain will not come to Mohamet, Mo
hamet must go to the mountain," so 1
walked across to my old friends. The
young ladies were all in. The eldest
was engaged with some embroidery at
the window. I had, therefore, an on-
portunity, as I leant over the frame to
whisper
"S. S. is not punctual."
The crimson in her face and neck was
now so deep, that a skeptic himself would
no longer doubt. I need say no more;
that evening in her father's garden she
confessed that she and her sisters had
conspired to bring me up to 0 on
a fool's errand, never meaning, of course,
to keep the engagement."
"Then," said 1, "since you designed
to take me in, you must consent to make
me happy 1"
"And what did she say, papa?" asked
my second daughter, who is now looking
over my shoulder as I write.
"Why, you little goose, she promised to
be your mamma, and she has kept her

The Philidelphia Evening Bulletin has
these remarks in a reoent number: :-
Napoleon the First is said to have
made- the remark that France needed
mothers. A friond of ours after traveling
in Europe gave us as the result of his
observations, that no man ' who had noM
traveled had seen a woman. We naked
one of the most intelligent ladies of our
acquaintance, who has visited Europe
more than ouoe, and who, indeed, resided
tli era for Boine time, whether the remark
of our friond were true, and she replied
in tho affirmative. The same persons
thought that the American women uro
prettier and naturally more : uttractive
than those abroad.
The diffioultv is twn-fiiM ' Th fif
belongs to younr, ladies, and the. second
to matrons. Both are symptoms of tlio
same disease. ' The young are frivolous,
and the mature are eommon-pliiee. With
all the reader's entauciasai and chivalry
fur women, let us nek him how many
ladies can oonvene intelligently and
interestingly in camparison with the men
of his acquaintance. If he will make an
honest investigation he will be surprised.
The. bearing of these remarks is espe
cially upon the tendency in our young
men to rowdyism and blackguardism. A
powerful safeguard is in female society,
and a great difficulty is that it ii intel
lectually so very deficient, . A young man
of any force of character; and there are
niinti sv:Aa A.rM:a. At. - ' i
many such, tires of gossip, the 'weather,
tne last lasnion and , tbe last concert
How many young womon go beyond theso
copies? '.' Ho tires, too, of mere household
details and the entaide of religions matters,
of which the more mature talk, and seeks
something more exciting.
If we would save the manners and
morals of the country, our women must
have a higher tone. They are pretty,
graceful, virtuous, industrious, bat they
ao not converse. They do not understand
literature and art; they are not able to go
with men into the reason of things; their
minds do not aot, as they should, as the
soft reflection in the water of earth and
sky. Home ought to be most attractive;
but in order that it may be so, women
must cultivate intelligence. Men are
made Intelligent in America by politics,
religion, business and generally by the
grand scale on whioh things must be
done. The collisions of the time make
them emphatically men. They are grad
ually growing away from their wivos,
daughters and cousins, and the effect is
most deleterious. It is seen especially in
young men of all olasses.
So far was this carried in Greece, that
the few women not of the best char
acter who cultivated their minds to an
extraordinary degree, while the mass
were content with trifles, have sent their
names down through history as the com
panions of the great men who illustrated
that golden age. Like the Greek women,
ours are by no means wanting in talent
They are characteristically very quick.
But there is some wrong kind of publio
sentiment among them which greatly
needs correction.
The re-action is seen for there must
necessarily be a re-action from so unnat
ural a oondition in female preaohing
and lecturing, in the overstepping of the
modesty and natural sphere of woman.
It is a thousand pities. But it is inevita
ble. The stream must have its way. If
we have no intelligent drawing-rooms, we
will have women on rostrums, just as
Aspasias were the re-action from the
monotony of female Greek life.
Sbvbrb upon heb own Sex. Lola
Montez ironically remarks to young
gentiomcn: "You ought to know that
there ore four things which always more
or less interest a lady a parrot, a pea
cock, a monkey, and a man; and the
nearer you can come in uniting these
about equally in your character, the
more you will be loved. This is a cheap
and excellent recipe for making a dandy,
a creature which is always an object of
admiration to the ladies.'
