At length he met her,' and it was for
the last time that season, at a public
tanner, ana in the dread of. losing her
forever, he resolved i- oven f thore to
rtake a-desparate effort to pop tho
question.1- Fortune fevored-1 tho at

tho Kcntlcin'an there' was a nlato of
rarjiicsan checsp, ,.and near the lady
Btooa a crystal dish of marmalade;:
"Will you do me tho honor to ac
cept-of a little Par, Miss Attn?" said
the lover, with a look full of meaning,
and moving his hand toward the
cheese. ' , , ..' ,

with .admirable readiness, liftininff. at

claimed the enraptured youth.' ' '
. ,Tlio offers wore mutually accepted.
and understood as plcdgos of personal
attachment, .by. .the parties, although
j nobody - else comprehended tho
th'6. transaction but' common civility,
Tho treaty thus opened was soon rati'
fied, and Mis Ann Marr -was invested
with tho titw of Mrs. Tar. 1 i

The only other' thing' for which the

which has a tower built in the twelfth
contury; tho rest of -the edifice is of
the time of Francis I.' In this church,
In one of the chapels in the nave, lies
buried tho Empress Josephine. The
tomb is an imposing one, and it is be
cause it is there that the old church
has been kept in a constant stato of
repair by tho present Emperor, i In
1824, ten years aftor their, mother's
doath, Quoon Ilortensoand the Prince
jEugcno purchased the, chapel in the
church and erected tho tomb there.

Cool. A young "blood," whom wo
will call Oliver, mot with an incident
during his early courting days, that
neither he 6r his friends have forgot
1 T . 1 .e.--tia
ton. xi cnanceu : that . Oliver was
"courting" a young lady against tho
wishes of tho stern parents, lie knew
his unpopularity, and seldom appeared
on tho scene until "tho old folks were
abed," arid then ho would steal into
the kitchen and enjoy tho company of
his inamorato.: The thing worked
well for a time, but things so very soft
aro apt to broak. ; :' : !
. .Tho ' old follow at last'-bogan to
"smell a mico." lie attemptod to
steal upon them one nighty but his fu
ture sou Jn-law got . the start of him
by about ten feet. Springing into the
yard ho dodged into a hen-coop,
which operation croatod quite a com
motion among tho inmates. Tho old
man came out, and without saying a
word, he shut and locked tho door;
then calling a watchdog of well known
grit,! he bade him keep watch and
guard for the remainder of tha night.
The dog knew, his business, and did
it; and poor Oliver was pbligod to
pass tho remainder of tho night in a
docidedly fold placed Ho was let out
in the morning, and the story was also
let out to his great botheration and
wrath, although he afterwards mar
ried the' youn lady,' irt spito of her
tyrannical dad. ' ; - :
