the girls but that of affection, "but it
was a pleasure to liavu the dear things
round us only when Hosamond, tho
uriguier and prettier of the two. be
gan to have her lovers, we saw that it
was a little wlule wo should bo able to
keep hor, and congratulated ouelvcs
that at any rate, we should still retain
l'o."aiiiond was nothing like a beauty,
and yet t-ho had all tho effect of one ;
she had that rich skin which becomes
any color, and her eyes wore always
beaming, und her unruly hair was al
ways turning up in little-curls, and she
had the awcetcat mouth in tho world,
and the prettiest pearls in it; only her
nose was anything but what fIio want
ed it. I suppose sho would have gone
to extremes, and had as keen an aquiline-
as any hawk-beaked lioinan ladv's.
.could she have had her wa v. for. us if
was, she had to make tho best ol' what
she called a iniir. As for Kiuma. aim
was fiimply Kosauioml s shadow not
quito m tall, not quite plump, not quite
,o frcsh-colure.l or curly-headed, and
not by any means m charming. I'or
Rosamond, with her vivacity, her quick
temper and her good hcail, her oblig
ing ways, her confiding air, and her
singing, was certainly charming; and
alter she camu homo the uuiuber of
boquuts, in compliment of her singing,
that were thrown into our ground-lloor
windows by her fccblo-mindcd young
lovers, with courago overwhelmed bv
infatuation, kept us supplied witfi
Well, the truth is that Rosamond
was a flirt. Kinma was'nt ; she never
had the chance, us Rosamond told her
once, in answer to the accusation, in
stantly kissing her and crying over
her, aud begging all tho pardons that
there were, und from that moment mak
ing over to Eiumu, so formally us to
make it laughable to us who saw it, the
best beaux sho had a proceeding that
thu beaux took in such dudgeon that
ho ceased to como to tho house at
all. Hut, as I was saying, Rosamond
was a pronounced llirt ; she had flirted
with the serious head-master at school,
aud with the frivulous music-master,
aud had given tho dancing-master to
understand that she believed him one
of tho noblcsso in disguise ; slio had
tried her arts on tho minister, und
when tho doctor was called to her diph
theria, of course slio tried them un him.
Not that they wero arts at all they
were a pai t of the child's nature ; it
was a necessity with her that every one
should euro for her. If they didn't
love her spontaneously, slio had to wile
them into it, and generally tlioy did it
Jt was not with equanimity that
Emma viewed these successes of Rosa
mond's. "I Wonder," slio would bo
moan herself, "why everybody loves
Rosamond und nodody loves mo."
".My dear," I exclaimed, "doesn't
Rosamond lovo you? don't your
cousin Maurice? don't I?"
"Oh, 1 dare say," Emma moaned
again ; "but 1 want to bo tho very first
to somebody. You lovo cousin Muu
rico bettor than me, aud ho love.i you
better than me, aud Rosamond is all
ready to lovo anybody Letter than ino
Oh, bother that sort of lovo 1" eried
Kinina, between laughing and crying.
"It would bo so delightful," said tho
poor little simpleton, "to bo loved tho
way ncoplo aro when they aro cugaged,"
hilo Kinma held forth in this way
Dr. Randolph was looking down Rosa
mond's tliroat with tho handle of a
spoon tho only thing that ever kopt
down that little tongue of hers, I
thought. Tho doctor, who had just
taken our family physician's place
Parisian education, talent, aud every
sort of recommendation pronounced
Rosamond's illness not serious, but or
dered confinement to her room, and
came twice a day for tonio time, mid
then ho camo onco a day. I begun to
bethink myself, as I saw the long culls
young Dr. Randolph made, heard the
conversations, turning on anything but
symptoms, aud looked on Rosamond,
with her returning color, her smiles
and dimples, hor bluo wrapper, uud all
tho dainty appliances of a sick-room
(nilct, thut some intinct taught her ;
aud I observed that this seclusion kept
oilier lovers off. And prehaps the lat
ter clause struck Rosamond's percep
tion nlso, for ouo day, while the doctor
still continued his visits, and without
having received any permNsion from
him, she descended to the parlor, nnd
there, when he came in, he found her,
with ynung M'Crcory turning her mu
sic mi one side, and young Waterman
Hutching on the other.
"What I" eried Dr Randolph 'in
this draught l And you are not at-
templing to singr
'Sing I" she said, fuming on him, a
the only thing to do "I don t believe
I ever shall sine nuain. Your wicked
diphtherias and potashes and thine
have ruined niv Voice I" And she was
so charming as she sat there on the
jiiiino stool with her high color and
her pouting lip, that 1 didn't wonder
the doctor seized both her hands in his

doctor had to get out his ial-easo

tho ruling spirit was strong in Rosa
mond still. I he lnincse wav is a

croaked, as ho bent over her to hear,

sink; "when you're sick (hero thev

"I'crlians, said he, t it a low tone,
with a flush mounting to his forehead,
I shall ask for a different suit of pay!"
When .Mr. uamioipii came in again
he wiis quite cool and quick mid pro
fessional, and was off to see Mrs. 1'rout
very soon. On his way ho met Water
man and M Crccry, und he told them
thoy had nearly been guilty of murder,
aud so scared them that tlioy did not
como near us for half a year.
It was some days before Rosamond
had voice enough for more than a
lo.cu woids : aud it was a sad cross.
for 'without her saueincss slio was with
out her best friend, and all her shrucs
aud pouts and smiles and dimples would
not answer Halt her rciiuiremeuts. Kut
as soon ns her voice returned, und she
began to tool a little m ore life, slio was
restive with up-stars captivity. It was
rather lonesome, for JOmma was so
afraid of thu dinhlcriu that she kept
out of tho way, and after Rosamond
hafl quite recovered, and tried, out of
puro mischief, to kiss her, slio
screamed and ran from tho room. "It's
abominable in Dr. Raudolph to shut
mo up so," iiosamonu saiti. "Lousin

not know what to iniiKu ol Dr. Ran
dolph's behavior ; ami whether it was
the cllcct ol diptlieria or ol loo, slio
was losing all her gay spirits mid bo

On eouing after Mmma's iceovcry
the doctor entered withou knocking,

opened the door, not knowing he was
there and came in, "Oh," said she,
looking throng!, tho twilight, "I sup
pose you don't want to see me," still
coining in, though.
"I came to inquire I'or your sister,"
"It seems to me," said she, standing
before the tire, "that you never ask
about my health now.''

unythiug about me," she cried passion
ately ; and then he saw the tears spring
and just us slio was flinging herself
away ho caught her aud drew her down
to him, und hid her faco on his breast
aud umlcr his kisses aud thu life ho
had saved belonged to him.
"It's beautiful, isn't it?" said Emma
nflterward. "Rut it makes you feel so
solitary I Cousin Jane, I've half a
mind to tell you something. 1 I
don't know but-what I shall be en

of me ; he picked mo up when I loll
that day and sprained my unklo, and he
left that bay-water at tho door for me.
I'll show him to you sotno day."
Rut if Kmma thought it was beauti
ful, flint was apparently more than Dr.
Randolph did, when after his lirst be
atitude and n month's engagement to
Rosamond, ho had not) been able to tee
hor twicoalouo; for,securoin hcrpossos
sion, Miss Rosamond was playing with
it according to her wont, aud he never
came in but he found her old lovers
hauging about her in a lover-liko way
that was terribly exasperating. He
thought he would put an end to it all
by an immediate marriage ; but Roa
inond had no idea of being caged so
curly, lie remarked on her conduct,
and slia laughed at him; ho lemon
st rated, aud she shruggod her shoul
ders at him ; ho was angry, and shu
told him laiuly it was too soon to
play Grand Rashaw. And poor Ran
dolph, loving her forvoiitly, and totally
uuablo to master her, instead of being
rapturous, grow daily more unhappy.
Rut the attendant of them all to
whom Dr. Randolph most objected was
"Isn't it enough for you," he said
wheu Rosamond usked kirn for reasons
"thut I don't liko him ? I consider
hiui a companion unlit for u young
lady. Abd I think, llcpamoud, that I

Ruckiiigham county has a sensation.
A woudeitiil cave has been diseovuied
there, which a wiiler in lliu iMinnville
'Meieury' tells about. Afler describ

"Wo bad satisfied our euiiosily aud
weio about lo lcuo Ihn eac, when be
hind a largo rock, or rather a spur of
Ihu main mek which formed the hot
torn, my sou discovcicd a larger pass
ngu than any uu had define seen.
This We entered, and after following
souiu six or seven feet, emerged inloim
apartment of imiuetisu size. Tim light
of our torches falling upon thu stalac
tites revealed a scene of beauty which
was fail ly dazzling. Thu size of this
apartment I cannot tell, as llio inof
uud sides were lost in darkness. Wo
penclralcd to a considerable distance,
keeping cIomi to one of I lie sides so
that wo might easily find'our way back,
and would havu gone further, but for
finding in a iccens, some seventy feet
from whuro wo entered, lying diieetly
under a shelving rock, the- body of a
man wrapped in some dingy eiolh -liku
substance. Wu did not know it was
the body of a man at first, uud was not
positivo that it was until wo had gotten
it outsidu tho cave.
"Mr. lloyd discovered tho body, aud
when we moved it from under the rock
my sou found suveral large ami beau
iful pebbles where tho body had lain,
aud a small round vessel, some four
inches in diameter and about two
inches in height, shaped vory much
liko an inkstand with a bundle ; this
und the stones or pebbles hu put in his
pocket. Wo took the body aud at oueo
went out of thu eavo. The cloths with
which it was wrapped wero very rotten,
and when wu had laid tho body down
ufler leaving tho oavc, they had nearly
all been tubbed from it. What weio
left crumbled liko burnt paper,
"Wu brushod thu body clean and
found it to ho tho dried up remains of
a man who had evidently been of more
than ordinary sizo, for I found it to bo
by ueltial measurement live feet nine
inches in length. .It is dried mid with
ered something like dried meat, only
the skin is tightly drawn over it. It is
hard tu tho touch, anil whcievcr there
is a wrinkle it is hard liko parchment.
"it is impossible lo form any idea of
what color the man was or whul his
fcatuies wero like, Tho body now is a
sort of smoky color, mid the hair,
ihough there is very little of it, it in
tensely black, On thu second linger
