A DAY IN FEMALE APPAEEL-

"I couldn't think of such a thinjr."
" But you must. My happines3 depends on
it. Here, put on your thingumbobs; and
what's his name. "
And my friend Bob Styles held up before
my hesitant gaze a whole suit of Ictuenine ap
parel. His idea was that I should personate his
lady love for one day, to prevent anybody
from suspecting the truth namely, that she
had joined him in a .runaway iirriage j r
ty until it should lie too lateifor interfer
ence; that is until the mini.-tcr should have
tied the knot between them that nothing but
a t-pecial grant of the Legislature could untie
The scheme was not so actually absurd as
it appeared at first. Maggie Lee was a tall
queenly woman, with an almost masculine
air, and at that time, I hud a very slight form
almost effeminate, so that, in fact, there was
really butf little difference in that particular.
I had light hair, parted ii the middle, and
put a bonnet on my head, and few persons
would suspect that I was not of the softer
sex. Tfyc accessories also give me quite n
decidifijesetiiblauce to .Maggie Lee, especial
.yAvhen as in this case the disguise was her
Then thc day chosen for the runaway
match was an auspicious one. Maggie's pu
was to drive her to I) , a small village
near M-hcre she. lived, and there she was to
loin a r.ul'rijr party down I) river IV
party was td return in the evening in cir
Our plan was, that I should bo waiting in
the village, uiid should go on the boat with
the sailing party, while Maggie, after leaving
her fal her, should slip off' with 'Sob Stylc
ncross the country.
At. last I got dressed, and presented my
self before Maggie, blushing a great deal, I
believe, feeling very much pinched about the
waist, and with an uncomfortable concious
ucss that my my shirt sleeves wcrctoo short
or wanting altogether.
Everything finished in the way of toilet.
Bob Styes took me into his light wagon line
drove me to D , by a secluded route
and left me at the hotel, wl cre the juilinc,
parly was to assemble. Several of the pick
jii' kcrs were already there, and greitcd luv
cavalier with cordiality, (everybody knew
Hob Styles,) asking him if he was going with
them. He told them he was not.
' Pressing business engagements, you know,
And all that sort uf thing. Ihiced sorry 1
can't go, though. I liad just time to bring
Mis I.ee over. Miss Wiliiergall, Miss Lee,1'
and he rattled oil' a long string of brief intro
ductions, which convinced me that but few
of the company were acquainted with the
young lady whom 1 was personating for tin
p'-eservation of my feiuenine disguise.

said "not a bad mutch fur you, old fellow,
she is rich,"
" Is she?" said Bimby, his ititcrst deepen

Maggio Lee, iii tful irctitnreiis nhe wis, had
told her father that the sailing party was to
assemble at another hotel, and thither he had
taken her. Having business in D , he
li fi ber there merely saying he would send
t tip caringe for her at eleven o'clock. She
like a dutiful daughter, kissed him and bade
him good bye, und before he had got u hun
dred yards got into Boti Styles' light wngon,
which hud been driven up to the back door,
us Mr. Lee had drove from the front, und the
old ulory of bend strong love and prejudiced
age was enacted over iigaln.
As for us of tliii pick-nick excursion we
had a delightful sail down the Grove, but
somehow 1 could not rnjoy It ns 1 might to

looking al me. I found Mr, Bimby, us I had
suspected, n young nud rising lawyer, mighty

The river breeze was very fresh where we

I couluu I divine the reason, until Jennie, my

her face very close to mine, and softly whis
"My dear Maggie, your dress is blowing
terrible highyour ancles will be town talk
with the gentlemen !"
Now, I was concientious of having a very
small loot for a man. and had doued a pair
of open worked stockings, which came up
nearly to my wai.-t, with a pair of gaiters
borrowed from a servant girl, in all of which
toggery my ' runuiiijr gear" looked quite
feminine and respectable ; but the idea of
the gentlemen talking abon.t my ankles and
of tints being t'dd (by n .young lady, who
would have beeu frightened to death it I had
told her the same ycterday, was too much
for me. I burt into a soriofstranglcd laugh,
which I could only check by swallowing half
of my filagree lace edged handki ichicf. The
young ladies all looked at me in uppenrent
astonishment at sue; a voice, and I wanted
to laugh nil the more. Fortunately, Mr, llim-
bv came to my rescue ut the Very moment

the black lace veil, and I fairly began to tear

Wh soon arrived at the Grove, and found
our band engaged before baud waiting us.
Of coiir-ie dancing was our lir.t amusement,
and lawyer Bimby led me mil fur n -shottische.
It was hard at. lir-t to take a holy's part in

A waltz was proposed, and 1, resolved In have

For the first three minutes my ruvaller did
well. He went smoothly and evenly, but nt
the cxplii'tlnn of that time, began lo grow

however, and I scorned to notice his Mat ken

nulling it rather rlrv amusement to ounce

pfovo 11 charming place, full of picturesque
lit'le corners und rustic seats, ami great
gry cordis leaning out over the river, On
one side of these gutter a little bench was
placed in a nook sheltered from tho wind
and from tight.
Here we sat in the flood of the moonlight
nnd having Just hint supper, I felt wonderful
ly in need of 11 cigar. Accordinrfly I went
buck to a liitie si 1 ml near the bull room und
purchased several of the wonderful women
who sold refreshment. Then turning to the
seat by the rocks, I gave up nil ciu'ch of.feun
