Marion's cyca followed his as they
looked down tho orchard path, and
saw a gentleman, coming slowly to
wards the house,-, reading intently
from a small volume in his hand.
Setting tho roses a little more becom
ingly in her curls, (for she was born
a coquette.) she whispered.-
" Your college chum, Clinton, is it
not I Tho party of last night deprived
me of the pleasuro of seeing him."
" Yes.we were late, and he too tired
to go with me into the rooms, or I
should have introduced. him then.

. Flatterer!" Sho laid her white
and - jeweled Jiand: caressingly upon
his ehouldqr and turned her .graceful
head within' the room as if in search
of something. Tht;re was policy in
tho coquette's slightest movement and
thi) was made that a sudden glimpse of
her glorious beauty might dazzle and
astonish the dreamy student.- (
Thus admonished, the apparently
unconcious.girl turned and raised her
largo and beautiful eyen to his face
A rapid glance convinced her of her
cousin's assertion. It was a faco much
liko that of the ideal otoi sho had pictu
red forth for his amusement. ' :' ,
. Cousin Marion, let mo ; introduce
yon to my best and dearest friend.
Godfrey Clinton,"said Mansfield,with
a light touch npon the arm. , '
"My cousins friends are always
welcome to mo," sho paid removing
her hand from Mansfield's shoulder
and extending it to him. 1 Ho took it
with a firm claBp, that thrilled her
through every vein
" How beautiful
" I will win his heart bofore
leaves me," said the lady. '
Their eyes met as he relinquished
her hand. Both blushed a little, and
Mansfield turned away to hide a smile
when he saw his friend, whoso grave
and steady aspect no woman's smile
had ever before possessed tho power
to move, beneath tho magnetio influ
ence of his cousin's handsome eyes.
The threo lingered there but a few
moments.beforo the breakfast bell rang
in the great hall Mansfield sprang
through tho window and stood by his
companion's side, determined, a9 he
said to lead her into tho breakfast
room though forty Clintons stood in
his way. At this folly his friend on
ly smiled, and turned away passed
round the 'house to gain tho front en
trance. ' 1
" What now, Louis ?" 'asked Marion
a3ho stood silent, looking absently
from this window. . ,,
"Not much Marion, I was only
wondering if you would win Godfrey's
heart, as you have won so many oth
" Most certainly if I think it worth
my while to try,' sho answered care
lessly. '' M Not if yod flirt with him, Mar
ion; ' Godfrey has never . loved yet-

"The Wife For Me."
Horace naskins was a sober, sensi
ble enterprising bachelor, . ol some
ieven-and-twenty years, : who, hav
ing obtained, an excellent reputa
tion for his industry and integrity, and
having made, himself nselul to the
mercuntilo firm in Boston, with whom
he had served an apprenticeship: was
at length invited to a partnership in
tho concern. For some time he had
been encourauod to anticipate this el-
ovation, and he soberly and energeti
cally entered upon tho new duties of
his position. When businesa crowd
ed he had bnt little leisuro to mourn
over his celibate condition ; but when
the, hurrying season was over, and
hoars each day hung heavy on his
hands, he could not help - thinking
bow delightful it would bo. had he but
a house and a gentle wife of his own.

lived an old friend of his father's ; and
being on a collecting tour-in that re
gion during tho autumn months', ' ho
determined to accept an oft-repeated
invitation to spend a fowdays with the
old gentleman, and .sent a .note an
nonncing his coming.
"Atthe appointed timo- ho reached
tho-residence ' of his old friend ', and
fonnd that the family were prepared
and pleased to welcome him as a guest.
In the parlor were two young ladies
well dressed and quite -handsome.
He was duly introduced to Miss Jane
and Charlotte, and found them ac
complished and fiensiblo young ladies.
Being juBt now very susceptible to
the tender passion, ho was easily pleas
ed, and exerted his power to render
himself agreeable to the flattered
maidens. lie succeeded, of courso.
Sensible men, of his age and 'pros
pects, always do, when they try.
And his eye wandering in conversa-
tionj from one handsome, intelligent
face to another, lie caught himself sev
tat ill a
erai - limes mentally inquiring.
'Which would make the better wife?'
The mother and : a neat-looking
maid were Been at intervals passing
from the kitchen preparing tho Bnp
per. ' Tho girl who set out the table,
snd spread the white, stainless cloth,
and arrainnjed the Plates, seemed to
do it gracefnlly ana quietly, as if she
had made such duties a ; study as a
scienco, and wn a glance of admi
ration as a very neat anil 'protty serv
ant a model of a 'help.' Altogether,
he thought it was a charming family.
When they sat at the cheerful supper,
and he tasted tho home-made bread,
and the sweet, fresh butter, and the
thinly sliced home cured beef, the
hot, well flavored tea; the excellency
and . good taste manifested in the

After tho stippcf iras -ovor and : tho

and .wfts formally introducod to him

s'lf,for'hinff taken her toV hirel
girl in. the family, but not a whit
more meanly of her for having re
vealed herself in that capacity. And
his perplexity was somewhat increas
ed as he sat 'down on his bedside in
the chamber, to which he was shown
by his host, and said to himself,
Which of tho three?'
In tho morning, after a night's
sound sleep for he was not sufficient
ly in love to keep him awake he en
tered the breakfast-room .and was soon
ioinecLlY the t0 .young Jadics who
had first welcomed him, Sarah was
not visible; but when they eat down
at tho table, and Jane had poured the
coffee, Sarah came smiling in behind
a clean whito apron, and, witu a
steaming pile of hot buckwheat cakes
in her hand, which, from the hue of
her checks, she had just been baking.
If there was a blush on her cheek, any
eye might see it was forced there by
tho firo, and not by any sense of de
gradation, on account of the office she
so gracefully filled. She greeted tho
guest with a welcome emtio, deposit
ed her load of edibles, and returned' to
the kitchen, whence she tripped again
in a few moments, with another plato
of cakes, most beautifully baked by her
own skill. Horace ate a large quan
tity ofthem,morotban onongh mere
ly to satisfy hunger, because of tho
beautiful little hands that made them.
And then he wandered over the farm
with the old man, and prated of hor
ses, and cows, and crops, as though
ho know something about them, as
well as broadclothes and calicoes.
At dinner time Jane and Charlotte
wero in tho parlor waiting for him,
and Sarah, as usual, was bustling
about the kitchen. 'I do wish,' said
ho, sotto voce, 'that one of those girls
would take Sarah's place in the kitch
en a little whilo, that I might find ouc
some of their house-keeping qualities,
and that I might have a little more
chut with her.' ,
- But ho waited for such a change in
vain, though ho found some opportu
nities of converse, and discovered all
he wished to' know just then, about
her mental qualifications and acquire
ments; and, atiho close of tho fourth
day, just before ho got into bed, he
slapped the whito counterpane em
phatically, and said to it as thero
was nobody in tho room, I supposo
ho must have spoken to tho counter-
pano or the bed post bhe s the wife
The next day, 'vfaa the outer limit
of his visit ; ' and, as ho stood at the
window after breakfast, ho saw Sarah,
with that witching, whito apronj trip
out into tho orchard, to shako down
some apples, for it was baking-day,
and pies were to be made. Horace
strolled out after her, and shook tho
treo, and helped to pick np tho apples,
and carried the basket, as they return
ed slowly to tho house. What it was
he whispered in her ear, she never
told, but 6he seemed not displeased,
though evidently surprised,' and a lit
tlo frightened. - '
A year after, Horace was at tho
honso of his old friend again, and Una
time, Sarah was not so much in the
kitchen. There wero great prepara
tions for a wedding to go lorward,
and, in a few davs, Sarah becamo
Mrs. Horace Hastins ; and now, in
a splendid Boston mansion, she fully
justifies the wisdom ol her dear hus
band s choice, by being to hun a most
excellent wife, and a superlative house-
