A MODERN ANTIQUE.
"Ten nounds!'' ropratoil Mr. Robin
son, lazily liftiiir his hand trim the pil
lows that wnro tiilcd nt the projifr end
of the sofa, and holding his cijrar sus
lf tided in one hand. '-My darling Mab,
what can you pus-dbly want witli ten
Mr. and Mr. Robinson were on their
wedding trip in Cornwall. The first
burnishing was not yet oft" the wedding
ring the lioneynioon was still trlitter
ing at its full", and consequently Mr.
liobinsoii, when he a.-ked his wife what
she could possibly want with ten pounds,
spoke without the animus which might
probably i.ttend u eorrei.poiuling rpjerv
ten years later.
The hotel .stood on au overhantrin'1'
plateau of rock, which commanded a
view of sea, hilN, dale, and glen, the
soft, Augit bree.e stirred the scented
evergreen boughs with lingers of balm,
and Mr. KibiiiMtn languorously reclin
ing on the sofa, was alnm.it asleep over
his novel when the voice of his wife in
terrupted his do.e.
"Oh, Charley!" breathlessly cried the
littlo bride, who was round and dim
pled, with hair of pale (Jertnan gold,

"An i. 'venture, rh?" said Charley,
looking admiringly nt his wife's rosy
"We've found the darlingest littleono
storied farmhoti.c up on the hills,"
went on Mabel, "with such a love of an
old man in knee-breeches and blue knit
ted stockiuirs. and an old woman in
white cup frills, and as deaf as a post.
We walked six miles :ind went in for a
gh-.s of water. And we had some ueh
delicious home-brewed cider and saf
fron cake, And, oh, Charley, there
was the sweetest old-fashioned spinning
wheel In the. corner, and an old arm
chair which had the date H;S8 carved
on its Ixittom, and a perfectly exiinisilo
shovel and tongs of wrought brass.
Such a set of antiques! Mrs. Hunter
will die of envy at tin; mere sight of
tlieni in my drawing-room."
"In vour drawing-room!" repeated
Mr. Uofjin.son, with an ama.ud uir.
"lteeause, my dear," Mabel, valiant
ly, "1'vo bouglit 'em. The three for ten
pounds. The darling old creature didn't
want to part with thorn, but her hus
band reiircseuted to her how many nice
things she could buy for the money,
and so, linally, she gave in. Hut all the
time I was waiting in a trembling lest I
shouldn't bo able to get the things.
And Mrs. Simpson wan ready to cry be
cause she couldn't a fiord 'em.
"But, Mabel," 'said Mr. Robinson,
screwing up his lips, "isn't ten pounds
a pretty round price, to pay for two or
throo old rattle-traps?"
Mrs. Robinson's rosy mouth (uivered
her eyes lilled with tears.
"Charles," said she, "you don't love
mo, or you never would speak in that
Mr. Robinson jumped up from tho
sofa, and put his anus carelessly round
his bride's neck.
"Don't fret, Mab," said he, with tho
coaxing nir which one would use o a
grieved child. "We'll go up to tho
farm together, you and 1, in tho morn
ing, and buy the things. If you want
ed the Roc's Kgg itbolf, sweetheart, you
should have it.
"Oh, but I don't care or eggs, you
know," said Mabel, brightening up.
She was not a student of tho "Arabian
Nights," and tho Roe's Egg had no par
ticular meaning to her. And she Ini
niediately fell to work making a dia
gram of W pretly littlo new drawing
room at homo to decide where she
should put tho spluning-whnel, and
whether tho antique nrtn-chalr was to
stand in tho recess between tho win
dows, or opposite tho Queen Anno lire
place. t la ...
it it rains to-morrow morning I shall
be in despair," said Mrs. Robinson.
Hut it didn't rain; there was not a
cloud in tho sky. The thermometer
was at ninety In tho shade, ami a urtft
blue mist brooded over the valley hols-
w. Mr. and Mrs. Robinson had a de
lightful pilgrimage up the hill-side.
Mrs, Robinson had a box of sweet meats
in her pocket, and Mr. Kobin.suii car
ried a volume of Tenin son, out of
which ho read melodious extracts to his
Mabel when they sat down on old stone
walls and under the shadow of umbra
geous hedges of blackberries ami wild
fusehias to rest; while Mabel sat and
looked enchanted, and exclaimed "lie
lightful!" and 'How sweet!" at every
pause; while, in reality, her mind was
wandering !lW;iy over llu pattern of
Mrs. Hunter's laee flounces, and the
probability of there being a carpet
dance in the hotel dining-room tin; next
At last they reached the one-storied
farmhouse with its windows covered
with blue-capped convolvulus, and the
patch of cabbages in the rear. Mr.
Robinson inspected the siinning-w heel
and pronounced it "a rum concern,"
nodded wisely at the arm chair, and
suggested that the shovel and tongs
would look a little better for polishing
up, and then he handed over the 11101"
ey which made them his absolute prop
city. "Send the things up to the Cliff Ho
tel," he said, "and I'll have them pack
ed and sent to London from there.
And when they were safe in the wood

on ll.e lips of her little rivneli bonis to

said she, "to think of everything. Be
cause, of course, the things 'will bo ruin

"i want em to come ail right, of
cotii'0, said Mr. Hobinson. "Aot that
I care much for such old trash myself
"Oh, Charley," oleadod his wife,
"don't say 'old trash." Say antiques."
"Well, antiques, then," (' harlev cor
rected himself, with a grimace, "lint
since we've paid such a price for theni,
it's well to have 'em delivered all sound
"I w ish, Charley," breathed the bride,
"that you cared more for art."
"Oh, hang art!" said Mr. Robinson.
"Now, don't look so scandalised, wifev.
1 like new, bright, pretty things, as well
as anybody, but 1 can t understand this
pavinir faucv nriees for old ratHo-trim
that we used to sell to the second-hand-dealers."
Mabel laughed. "Charley," said she,
'you are an outer barbarian."
"Very likelv, my love." said Mr.
Robinson. And then thev stooped to
Irink from a crystal spring" which bub
bled out of the recesses of ' a huge grey
rock, and forgot all about their little
differences of opinion.
J tic "antniiies were duly ehvered
at the hotel the next day, ami a carpen
ter, recommended by the landlord, ar
med to see about tho boxing up of the

oiiiig man, who did the job thorough
ly, and spared neither nails nor screws.
"iou re sure, now, that they U go all

the packing was complete, and the car
penter stood, hat in hand, to receive bis

Mr. Robinson said nothing. Where
was the Use? Mabel had wanted an
tiques.and they had paid antique piroes.
Let tho carpenter and his revolutions
sink into oblivion. . Tho world was full
of knaves, and ho had proved 0110 of
their victims. That was all!
So ho never told Mabel that her spinning-wheel
and arm-chair had been
manufactured to order within the last
throo months. Ho took no stops to
break up tho thriving business of "(ho
guv'nor' and his venerable confeder
ates. After all, no amount of law
could grind tho folly out of fools, llo
Lad sull'ered, Let other peoplo go
through the same ordeal.
But ho never bought another drawing-room
ornament without knowingex
aetly where it came from. And he
smiloti a grim, misanthropic sort of
sinilo when ho sees Mabel point out her
treasures to the ladies of her acquaint
unce, and hears her say, artlessly: .
"They Hro genuine antiques. I
uought'em out of the farmhouse my
self. And Just look at the tlate tvirved
on this love of an old urni-chalr: H'M!"
'Ieiir, dear! how fortunate you ura
to obtain Bucu treasures us these!"
Fanny Fora's Onbr for pinner.
I have recalled several times, and for
reasons, a morn I once spent with "Fan
ny rem," who was always good and
kind to young people, especially if they
aspired to scribbling for the printer.
She was busy and had given orders that
there were to be no interruptions for
any reason. Suddenly t here broke up
011 our stillness she w as writing and I
reading -a loud knock upon tho door.
"What is it?" said Mrs. l'arton, a tritlo
impatiently. It was tho cook, a new
one. "I'lase. ma'am, nothing has come
for dinner. What will I do, ma'am?"
"Do? Why, cook the cat! but leave 1110
alone," and she gently shut the door
and turned the key. 1 did not stay to
dinner. A kinder-hearted woman than
"Fanny Fern" never lived; but, like all
women who seek seclusion and quiet, at
times she had to tight for it.
Wby Johnson Stayed a'Week.
Last August Mr. Johnson with his
wife, who had been doing tho pleasure
resorts for two months, arrived at the
quiet town of X., in New Hampshire,
where a small hotel, pleasantly situated
and very cleanly, otVered him "hospitali
ty. After supper the landlord walked
the piaz.a, and was accosted by Mr.
Johnson, when the following dialogue
"Where's your sun-ot hill?"
"Haven't got any."
"Is the Devil's Oulch near here?"
"Never hear l .if it,"
How far is it to Lover's Leap?"
"Must be lifty miles, but I don't
"Is tiit; Silver Cascade running?"
"Don't know; never knew it was
"How far is it to the springs?"
"Didn't know we bad any here
abouts." "The attractions of this place are very
few, it appears."
"Mighty few and getting scarcer."
'Wife, this is just the place we have
been seeking. There is nothing to see
and we will stay here a week." Huston
