4You are very unjust, Alice !' said the
young man, gravely ; 'I never saw you so
before. I do not find fault with you, nor
scold you, but merely wish you to know
what kind of society you are getting into.'
'No, 1 know you don't scold?I wish you
would, instead of putting on such a long
face, and preaching such straight-laced propriety
to mc !'

you mean them now I will go?I came i

As the e tn a n ci a ted lover left the house
he met a tall, buxom girl, with red cheeks,
bright eyes, and a wholesome looking figure,
lithe and plump. She was arrayed in
a green velvet riding habit, trimmed with
gray fur, a jaunty little black hat and
feather, cunning little wash leather gauntets
and she fiouri-shed a slender riding
whip as she walked in a peculiarly independent,
amazonian, characteristic style.
'Hallo, Charlie ? What's the matter V
she critd, in a clear, cherry voice, as she
b;iw the cloudy expression of his face.
'Nothing?onlv Alice and I have broken
'/'or the ninety-ninth time, eh V
'For the last time, anyhow.'
'You shall see !'
'I'll bet you a box of cigars against a
new whip tTiat you are excellent friends
again within a week !'
Done ! Give me your hand on it.'
They shook hands, laughing, and the
amazon, after making Charlie promise to
go and 6lioot pistols with her, in the rear
garden, that afternoon passed into the
house to learn the casus belli from Alice.
'So you've quarreled with Charlie, again,
?h V asked 6he, as soon as salutations were
'How did you know !'
'I met him, and he told me.'
Yes, we have separated in earnest, now
?and I'm glad of it !'
'But I am going to bring you together

him, and he does not love me. We have

That for Count Izlavotskiwitch !' cried
the amazon, snapping her fingers ; 'what

'Now, Kate, don't you turn against him
too ! Everybody seems to liato Iiiin, jusl
because lie is a nobleman, a foreigner, and
lias a long name.?I think lie is a perfect
gentleman?and I shall tako his pari

vied conspieioiiK by having the eye
fixed firmly in her left optic.
ie was a most extraordinary girl, was
Kate Archer. She was an only child, and
her father had educated her, as lie said, 'to
take the place of half a dozen girls and
boys.' She would shoot, ride, drive, row,
skate, smoke, play hillards, and whistle, as
well as any body or man in llio country ;
and then, gain, few women could excel
Iter in singing, playing the piano, dancing,
drawing, embroidering, and performing
the lighter household duties. Willi all
these accompaniments, she could converse
charmingly, was a natural actress and
mimic, and had such a dashing, oft-hand
original manner with her that everybody
admired her, and many lovtd her?though
all were shocked by her goings-on twenty
times a day, at least.
She had numberless offers of marriage
from the gentry of the neighborhood, and
might have maJe a brilliant match, perhaps
; but she evinced no hurry whatever
to enter the estate of matrouhood, and attained
her three-and-twentieth year without
being even engaged?a circumstance
lliat greatly delighted her father, who
thought, as old fathers think?and with
much truth, generally?that no man was
good enough for his darling to marry.
Sumehow, or another, this singular being
seemed unusuaily high-spirited and
good natured after the scenc 1 have just described.
She was in a state of continuous
vivacity and jolifieation, similar to that imparled
by very fine old wine, for a long
while, and could hardly find means to express
the intensity of her satisfaction with
the whole universe and all its component
par ts. This beautified condition made hci
such charming company, that Charlie Mynturn
could not stay away from her, am]
was hovering about Squire Archer's nearlj
all his leisure time?much to the disgusl
of Alice Wetherby, who began to hatehei

Kate tried, once or twico, to patch up f
piece between Alice and Charlie; bm
Alice always received her so coldly, sinc<
her mimicking of Count Izlavoskiwistch
