A ROMANCE OF ltUOAl) WA Y.
"I: havo oarnod thrco shillings,
York, this blessed aftornoon!" I ex
claimed, with ill-supprossed exultation,
as I throw ilowu my pen, which I had
been diligently using for four hours (I
was penning "an article" for a cortain
"monthly," dear reader), pushed my
closely-written manuscripts from mo,
and took a yellow cigar from my hat,
which I havo mado my chief pockot
since my fifth yoar, the time, I boliovo,
when my discriminating parents ex
changed my infant cap for tho nianly
castor. Thrco York shillings havo I
mado this blessed day.hoavon bo thank
ed, and now I can conscientiously tako
a littlo 'easo in mino inn!' Whcroupon
I ignited my cigar with a self-enkindling
apparatus, a gift from my consid
erate landlady pray heaven sho
charges it not in her bill to savo hor
candlos, and ascending tho threo stops
to my window, I seated myself in my
accustomed chair, and forthwith pro
ceeded to speculato on things external.
It was that calm, lovely time, which is
wont to usher in tho twilight of a sum
mer evening. Tho roll of wheels in
Broadway beneath mo was ceasoless.
Bright forms Hashed by in gay car
riages! Tho happy, tho gallant, tho
beautiful, were all forth to tako tho
air on tho fashionable evening drive!
Why was I not. with tho cavalcade?
Whero was my RosinanteP Where was
my "establishment?" Echo answered
"whore?" I puffed away silently and
"Vigorously for a few seconds, as theso
meutal queries assailed me; and, bless
ed soother of tho troublod, oh, in
comparable cigar! my philosophy ro
turned. Diagonally opposite to my window
stands ono of tho proudest structures
on Broadway. It is costly with stono
and marble, lofty porticos and colon
nades. Tho edifice first attracted my
attention by its architectural beauty,
and eventually lixed it by a mystery,
that seemed, to my curious eye, to bo
surrounding ono of its inmates!
A lady of dazzling beauty was an in
mate of that mansion, and, for aught I
know to tho contrary, its only inmate.
Every afternoon, arrayed in simple
white, with a flower or two in her hair,
sho was seated at tho drawing room
window, gazing out upon tho gay spec
tacle Broadway presents of a pleasant
aftornoon. I saw her tho first moment
1 took possession of my dormant nook,
and was struck with her surprising
loveliness. Every evening I paid dis
tant hoiuago to hor beauty. Dare a
poor scribbler, a mere penny-a-liner,
nspiro to a nearer npproaeh to such a
divinity, enshrined in dollars and
cents? No! I worshiped like a publi
can, afar oil". "Tis distance lends en
chantment to tho view." But sho was
not destined to ho worshiped by all.
Ouo afternoon tdie was at tho window,
with a gilt-leaved volume in her hand,
when a gentleman of tho most graoo
ful bearing rodo past my window. Ho
was well mounted and sat upon his
horso liko an Arabian! Ho was what
tho boarding school misses would call
an elegant fellow! a well-bred man
of tho world, a remarkably handsomo
man! Tall, with a line oval faeo, a
black, penetrating eye, and a mustache
upon his lip, together with a lino figure
and tho most perfect address, ho was,
what I should term, a captivating man.
His air, and a certain indescribable
commo il faut, bespoke him a gentle
man. As ho came opposite her window
iis eye, as ho turned it thither, became
fascinated by herboauty! How much
Jovelicr a rcallv lovely creature ap-
ears when seen through 'plate glass!'
uvoluntarilr ho drew in his spirited
liorso, and raised his hat! Tho action,
tho manner, and the grace, wcro inim
itable. At this unguarded moment tho
'hind wheel of a rumbling omnibus
struck his horso in the chest. Tho an
imal reared high, and would havo fall
en backward upon his rider, had bo
not with wonderful presence of mind
stepped quietly and gracefully out of
the stirrups to tho pavement, as the
horse, losing his balance, fell violently
on his side. Tho lady, who had wit
nessed with surpriso tho involuntary
homago of tho stranger, for such, from
her manner of receiving it, ho evident
ly was to her, started from her seat
and screamed convulsively. Tho n-jxt
moment ho had secured and remount
ed his horse, which was only slightly
injured by tho fall, acknowledged tho
interest taken In his misehanco by tho
fair being who had been its innocent
causo (unless beauty were a crime) by
another bow, and rodo slowly and com
posedly onward, as if nothing unusual
bad occurred. Tho next evening tho
carriago was at tho door of tho man
sion. Tho liveried footman was stand
ing with tho steps, down, and tho han
dle of tho door in his hand. The
coachman was on tho box. I was, as
usual, at my window. Tho street door
opened, and with a light step the grace
ful lorm of my heroine came forth and
descended to tho carriage. At that mo
ment (somo men aro surely born under
the auspices of nioro indulgent stars
than others) tho stranger rodo up and
bowed with ineffable grace, and (bless
ed encounter 'that, with tho omnibus
wheel) his bow was acknowledged bv
an inclination of tho superb head, and
a smilo that would mako a man of any
soul seek accidents "in tho cannon's
mouth." Ho rodo slowly forward and
in a few seconds tho carriago took tho
same diroction. Thcro aro no infer
ences to bo drawn from this; reader.
All the other carriages passed tho samo
route. It was tho customary ono! At
tho melting of twilight into night, tho
throng of drivers and riders repassed.
The "lady's" carriage (it was'a lan
dau and the top was thrown back)
came last of all! The cavalier was
riding beside it! Ho dismounted as it
drew op before tho door, assisted hor
to the pate, and took his leave. For
geveraf afternoons successively, the
gentleman's appoaranco was simulta
neous with that of tho lady at hor car
riago. Ono evening they wcro quito lato
in roturning. . Finally, tho landau
drew up beforo tho door. It was too
dark to see faces, but I could havo
sworn that tho equestrian was not tho
stranger! No! lie dismounted, open
ed tho door of tho carriage, and tUo
gentleman aud lady descended! Tho
footman had rode his horso, whilo ho,
happy man, occupied a seat by tho sido
of the fair ono! I watched tho progress
of this amour for sovoral days, and
still tho stranger had never entered tho
house. Ono day, however, about 8
o'clock, I saw him lounging past, with
that ease and self possession which
characterized him. lie passed and re
passed tho houso two or thrco times,
and then rather hastily ascending tho
steps, pulled tho bell. Tho next mo
ment ho was admitted, and disappeared
from my sight. 15ut only for a mo
ment , reader! An attic hath its ad
vantages! Tho blinds of tho drawing
room were drawn, and impervious to
any glance from tho street; but tho
leaves were turned so as to admit tho
light of heaven and my own gazo! I
could sco through tho spaces directly
down into the room as distinctly as if
thero was no obstruction. This I give
as a hint to all concerned who havo re
volving leaves to their Venetian blinds.
Attic gentlemen aro much edilied there
by! Tho next moment ho was in tho
room, his hand on his heart another,
and I saw him at hor feet! Sir would
that I had languago to paint you tho
scene! Lady I then loaruod tho "art
of lovo!" I shall havo confidence, I
have had so good a pattern, when I go
to mako my declaration! Tho decla
ration, tho confession, tho acceptance;
all passed beneath mo most odifyingly.
Then came tho labial seal that mado
his bliss secure. By his animated ges
turos, I could seo that ho was urging
her to somo sudden step. Sho at first
appeared to bo reluctant, but gradually
becoming more placable, yielded. Tho
landau was at the door in ton minutes.
They camo out arm in arm aud entered
it! 1 could hear tho order to tho coach
man: "Drive to St. John's Church!"
"An elopement," thought I. "Having
been at tho breaking cover, I will bo in
at tho death!" and taking my hat and
gloves, I doscended, as if I carried a
policy of life insurance in my pockot,
the long llights of stairs to tho street,
bolted out of the front door, and fol
lowod tho landau, which I discerned
Inst turning tho corner of Canal street,
followed full fast on foot. I eschew
omnibuses. They aro vulgar! When
1 arrived at church tho carriago was
beforo it, and tho "happy pair," al
ready joined together, were ust cross
ing tho trottoir to re-enter it! Tho
grinning footman who had legally wit
nessed the ceremony, followed them.
Tho next day, about noon, a capa
cious family carriago rolled up to tho
door of tho mansion, followed by a ba
rouche with sorvants and baggage.
First descended an elderly gentleman,
who cast his eyes over tho building, to
seo if it stood whero it did when ho left
for the Springs. Then camo, ono after
another, two beautiful girls, then a
handsome young man. "How grind I
am to get homo again," exclaimed ono
of tho young ladies, running up tho
stops to tho door. "I wonder whero
Jano is that sho docs not meet usP"
Tho sylph rang tho bell as sho spoko.
I could seo down through tho blinds
Into the drawing room. Thero was a

door, and tho lady, his bride, was try
ing to prevent him. "You shan't!"
"I will! "I say you shan't!" "I say
I will!" wero interchanged as certainly
between tho parties as if I could hear
tho words. Tho gentleman, or rather
husband prevailed. I saw him leave
tho room, and tho next moment open
tho street door. Tho young ladies
started back in the presence of tho new
footman. The old gentleman, who was
now at tho door, inquired as he saw
him, loud enough for mo to hear, "Who
in tho devil's namo are you, sir?"
"I havo tho honor to bo your son-in-law."
"Tho devil you have! and who may
you havo the honor to bo?"
"Tho Count L y," with a bow of
"You are an impostor, sir!"
"Hero is your eldest daughter, my
wife," replied tho newly mado hus
band, taking by tho hand his lovoly
brido who had conio imploringly for
ward when tho disturbance reached
her cars. "Hero is my wifo, your

A scene followed that cannot bo de
scribed. Tho nobleman had married
the gentleman's housekeeper. Sho had
spread tho snare, and liko many a
wiser fool ho had fallen into it.
Half an hour afterwards a hack drove
to tho servant's side door, and my ho
roino came forth, closoly veiled, with
bag and baggage, and drove away.
Tho Count, tor such ho was, I saw no
more! I saw his name gazetted a day
or two after as a passenger on a packet
ship that sailed for Havre. How he es
caped from tho mansion reniaineth yot
a mystery. Every Other Saturday.
"It is strange," said a commuter to
a passenger who occasionally traveled
on the samo road, "il is strange that I
havo never eeon jour wifo with you."
"Is that so?" "Yes; I'm sure sho of
ten takes this train; in fact, I saw her
only a day or two ago, didn't 1?"
"Very likely, was the curt reply.
"Well, I didn't want to bo too inquisi
tive, but I'd really like to know why
you never travel together." "On ac
count of economy." "How so?" "Bc

In regard to crossing tho Atlantic In
a small boat, says tho New York Times,
it is generally called a very foolhardy
undertaking. In point of fact, tho man
who goes to sea in the summer In a
boat so constructed that she cannot
sink and cannot get full of water, is in
less danger of drowning than tho man
who goes to sea in a big steamer. Ho
may starvo through getting out of pro
visions, ho may perish from want of
exercise or sleep, or in consequeneo of
exposure to weather, but ho can only
drown by falling overboard.
CAIRO BULLETIN: "WEDNESDAY MOKNING JUNE U, 1884.
Every Day (Jlnnm.
Tho man in tho household U not
popularly the objoct of inueli solicitude
on trio part of tho members of tho fam
ily. Thero is an erroneous idea that
ho stays down town all day having a
good timo, that ho is always smoking,
or tolling stories, or goinir out to see
that mysterious other man, ami that
tho hard, dull routine of business is tho
last thing that ho evor troubles himself
about, aud when ho goes homo at night
his wifo looks at him suspiciously and
says in a fretful voice:
"I should think you would want to
oomo homo sometime, John. Baby's
sick, Harry has cut his linger and tho
girl has gono to hor cousin's fuuoral,
and there' 8 no firo in tho range. ' O,
dear! If girls knew when they wero
well off they would never cet mar
ried!" And John goes into tho kitchen,
whistles all tho timo ho is making tho
firo, holds tho baby and whistles until
it goes to sleep, and is still whistling
softly "Homo, Sweet Homo," whon his
wifo calls out:
"For mercy sakes, John, do stop that
whistling ami como to supper. Oh!
my poor head!"
John goes to supper; thero is a whit
tle about "Homo, Sweet Homo" stran
gled in his throat, and it chokes him
into silence; ho tries not to think of a
sweet, serene faeo with an aureole of
whito hair that used to look at him with
fond, appreciative eyes until a few
years ago, when tho film of death blot
ted him out. His mother, who had al
ways a kind word towclcomohini with;
to whom ho had taken all his foolish
boyish hopes, his littlo tormenting
cares, his frequent disappointments,
whose eves held a llamo of love that
lighted his path even yet his mother!
"John, did you seo about that boiler
"There! I knew thero was some
thing I had forgotten, Nellie, but wc
wero invoicing all day."
"Invoicing! yes! More likely having
a ganio of something to pass away tho
time. But 1 supposo I can go down to
morrow and see about it. I haven't
anything to do, women never do have,
John doesn't say anything; being a
man ho can't talk back and preserve
his own self respect; ho hasn't tho
heart to whistle, and it would only
mako matters worse if ho did. He
would liko to cry yes, ho would, just
as ho used to when ho was a boy, witli
his faeo downward on his own little
bed, with his mother's loving hand ca
rousing his hair.
"Men arc only lioya prawn tiili:
Hearts lon't change much alter all."
But he would look well crying, now,
wouldn't he? So ho smokes or reads
tho paper, helps undress the babv and
wonders, as he looks at it, if life is
indeed worth living.
There may not be any necessity of
donn s who always meeting inm with a
smilo and roses in herhair though sho
was ready enough to do that when she
was not his wife, but sho has other du
ties now. But just because ho is big
and strong, and comes in with Who
home quickstep, thero is no need of her
nagging at him as if ho was a mere cal
culating, money-making machine.
Thero is no downy-cheeked, rosy-lipped
baby that loves being petted any
better than that samo stalwart John!
Ho needs to bo praised, too, and to feel
that ho is appreciated, and ho doesn't
want to wait until ho has typhoid fever
or pneumonia, cither, in order to bo of
some consequeneo at home. Tho In
dians believe in hardening their braves
so that they can endure mortal pain
and mako no sign, but they aro sav-np-es.
It will not enervate the household
John to send him from home with a
kiss and welcome him back with a
smile, and, Nellie, don't you forget it!
