MAT 22, 1874 !
COIU'S 0ELI S1O.
Not a couimon prince like
snuffy old liubsian we used t
wearing a ereasj fnr-,collar
long overcoat, eating garlic
drinkttJg brandj three times ('iurn
&Uy, atad growling at ererythiog
American in the most detestable
English. Nothing of the kind.
She pined for a prince such as
we read about iu the fine' old senti
mental novels that amused our
fathers and mothers in the flower
of their youth; a Thaddeus of War
saw, all talent, and pallor, and
tendernefa, and musical voice,
fine, rolling ejea, and pedigree,
that sort of thing.
For var part I don't believe
such princes. The Prince oi Wales
isn't one of that specie, and I'm
afraid the breed has gone out with
the fine old sentimental novels.
Nothing else, however, would suit
Miss Cora Depeyster. Being not
totally unlike other fair damsels of
twenty or thereabouts, she desired
to experiment upon the etate mat
rimonial, and had plenty of oppor
tunities, but common clay would
not do. A prince she must have or
single she would remain.
Now, a real good writer of senti
mental atoriea could create such a
being especially tor the emergency,
and, after the customary amount of
tantaliaation through the medium
of an obstinate parent or what not,
marry off Miss Cora and her prince
in the most satisfactory style. But
1 never was good at sentimental
creation. I must write about people
I know and see. am sorry for
the Coras. I've seen lota of them;
bat what sort of prinees did they
marry ? One now pours tea for a
sharp-nosed, red-headed life insur
ance agent. . Another is the spouse
of a strapping farmer, who sits with
hat on ana eats in hi shirt-sleeves.
Another wedded a subdued German
who plays second clarionet in a
cheap orchestra, and has to move
monthly because he can't pay his
rent. Still another but the cata
logue grows melancholy. Thus
with all the Coraa. They go on
pining for princes who never come;
marrying all torts of people instead;
and, dying, give way to a fresh race
of Coras, who follow in their
raamma'a footstep with a disre
gard of experience that savors cf
One of the sweetest of watering
places is Happy Valley. It is
romantie and comfortable at onoe.
There is delightful bathing, rowing,
sailing, and fishing in the lake itself,
and the shady groves that line its
shores are cool and green and mys
terious, and suggestive of dryads
and nymphs and fairies and
things. That is, if you happen
to be of a poetic turn of mind. If
not, they only suggest flirtations.
I will not further expatiate upon
the delights of Happy Valley, lest
it should be faneiea that 1 have lots
for sale in the vicinity, whereas I
have none anywhere not even a
burial lot; and that, I believe, is
the common lot of all. Neither did
Cora Depeyster have any real estate
to dispose of, but she thought just
as I do and passed much of the
time every summer in the fair
demesnes that lie smilingly adja
cent to the Happy vralley Pavilion.
Notwithstanding the round of
pleasures in which she every summer
took prominent part, she could not
stifle her inward and continuous
yearning for the music ofa princely
voice, the glance of devotion from
princely eyes, the touch of a princely
hand in the dance, and the sweet
envy of all maidens who had to go
pnnceless through life. She sighed
a great deal, and began to think the
gTeat world a cold, hard, unrotnantic
sort of an arrangement.
Of course, you and I know better.
I never wrote a romance yet half sd
wonderful as the simplest life would
make were it truly told. The only
trouble is that the simplest life can
not be truly told. It seems easy,
but you try it once !
Though there was no prince
among the Pavilion boarders, there
was a poet. Arthur Bayne was
there. It is barely possible that
Cora might have fallen in love with
him; there is something every fine
and hyfalutin pardon the expres
sion in a young lady's idea of a
poet. But then Arthur Bayne was
altogether different from her ideal.
He knew the world too well to
believe in its hollowness. He had
found it in fact a very round, hard,
and stubborn sort of thing.
1 notice that men who hav rea.ly
been shaken up a bit in the merry
goround we call life are not apt to
preserve the outside show of senti
mentalism to any great extent. We
all start off, some time or another,
with our long hair, our turn-down
collars, our sable suits, our brigand
hats, and our little hidden sorrows;
but when we have cut our eyesteetn
and learned something about other
folks' trouble w always come back
to reason, to plaid reckties, to stove
pipe hats and the barber.
Arthur was too matter of fact for
Cora and she 100 sentimental for
him from any hymeneal point of
view, yet the' somehow became
very excellent and very intimate
friends. One t'veninir they sat in
the f-hore of the lake together. Cora
was gazing at the moon, of course.
She was one of that kind. She
had been telling Arthur what kind
ot hero she had imagined for her a
heart-biatory, and described the
prince with his melting eyes and
musical voice, his generous natare
and magnificent air, his mild
melancholy and inexhaustible affec
tion, his irreproachable morals and
aristocratic birth. Arthur listened
with due gravitv until she had finish
ed. " Why don't yon take uie ?" he
asked. " I am not very rich, but
then poverty is romantic. 1 can't
play the guitar, but I know a fellow
who is splendid on the banjo. As
for a fine antique family, my father
was Mr. Bayne, son of Old Bayne;
I believe he never went to State
" Now, Arthur, you are too bad!
You make fun of everything."
" Well, to be serious, child, you'll
never find your prince."
"And why not?"
" Because they don't make 'em.
Most men are tolerably human, and
humanity is not perfection. Tf a
mm has no other small vices he is
sure to chew tobacco, write poetry,
or keep a dog. We are fair but
frail,' we men."
" Ah, Mr. Bayne ! what a world
it is ! I wish there might be some
place where one might go and hide
away and dream in peace."
" There is; and I am going there
now. I refer to my bed."
The next morning tho belles of
Happy Valley were in a twitter.
The late train the night before had
brought a new young man, and
young men were not a drug at the
Pavilion. The new comer had
taken the finest suite in the establish
ment, and a great pile of trunks
with his initials stood in the vesti
bule, where they were jealously
regarded by the other young men,
heartbroken with the consciousness
of possessing but a single trunk,
and that, perhaps, a small one.
When it became known that the
unknown was really on the piazza,
smoking a cigar, all sorts or diplo
matic maneuvers were resorted to
get a near sight of him on the
part of the young ladies. Cora
Depeyster denouueed it as an
exhibition of brazen ill-breeding in
others. As for herself, she stood
only at her window, which com
manded the piazza, and scrutinized
him through an operasglass.
Montgomery Smythe for such
was the name which appeared on
the register in three days found
himself a favorite with the ladies.
He was of the conventionel type of
magnificence the black-haired,
black-eyed, red. cheeked style, with
small feet, dyed mustache, and eye
glasses. In the matter of scarfs
and neckties, with the jeweled pins
thereto devoted, he was truly gor.
geous. If a man has the least taint
of vulgarity, let him beware of his
neck. Too much thoracic decora
tion ruins one.
A great change came over Cora.
She was sad and gay by fits ; irrita
ble, changeable, and incomprehen
sible. There is no use of wasting
words about it. She was in love.
Her prince had come.
As tie days wore on this regal
person developed. He gave sup
pers in his room to the young
bloods, and organized picnic parties
in the woods thereabouts, which
made the belles of the Pavilion
quite miserable witli happiness. To
Cora's intense delight he made her
in some sort the central figure in
these last charming affairs, and
held profound consultations with
her concerning the details, they
thus became associated in a certain
degree before the public eye, and
when rumor whispered an engage
ment Cora did little more than
blush and stammer a denial that
sounded ever si much like a con
firmation. She gave herself up to a sort of
blind adoration of Montgomery
Smythe. She made a prince of
him first, and put all of her trust
in him afterwards. He told her of
his ancient family ; of his late fath
er, Judge Dewey, twice United
States Senator, and son of Commo
dore Smythe, of the war of 1812.
The commodore's father, he said,
was General Smythe, of Revolu
tionary fame, and brother to Gov
ernor Smythe, of one of the colo
nies under George 171. He talked
of the magnificent old country-seat
his father had left him, with its
picture-gallery full of the portraits
of tba old worthies just mentioned
and their wives ; all uniforms and
brocades and gold braid and laces ;
of the long drawing-rooms the
grand dining-hall, the library, the
grounds all in true baronial style,
till Cora, rich and luxuriously
reared as she was, began to look
up to him as a being of an alto
gether different and higher sphere.
One day they took a walk in the
grove in the rear of the Pavilion.
It was the closing up of the season,
and the next day there was to be
a genera! exodus of the Happy
Valley boarders to their homes.
Cora felt that the decisive moment
had arrived ; and it had. The
hitherto pent-up devotion of Mont
gomery Smythe found vent at last
in a declaration and a proposition.
He vowed his love in a perfectly
princely style, and having been ac
cepted w ith a good many blushes
and tears, just as is the case in all
well -written novels, he informed
her that letters just received from
his confidential agent in Europe
compelled him to start iminetfiate:
ly for Paris, and urged her to mar
ry him at once without waiting to
go through the form of asking the
permission of her grand-sire or con
sulting her friends. Was he not
Montgomery Smythe ? and who
could posibly object to such an al
It is very possible that Cora
might have consented, so infatuated
was she with her prince, but she
bad read that the regular thing was
to demand time for consideration,
so she postponed her decision which,
really was already made until
As they reached the piazza, he
lazily tapping his glossy boot with
his bamboo, and she very tremulous
and very happy, a thickset, pock
mark individual, with black, heavy
whiskers and a glazed cap, came
down the steps and, nodding to
Smythe, said :
I would like to say a private
word to you, young man,"
Montgomery Smythe suddenly
stopped tapping his boot and, turn
ing pale, looked sharply at the
stranger. A slight vibration of
that person's eyelid made him turn
still paler, and without a word he
walked several steps away from the
Pavilion. The stout man then
slowly drew a large pocket book
from his breast, favored Smythe
with a view of certain documents
therein contained, immediately after
which he said aloud :
"You're my prisoner, sir, in the
hands of the law !"
Cora felt like fainting, but her
curiosity was more than a match
for her weakness.
Smythe looked toward her,
laughed a little, gasping laugh,
and tried to say that this ridicu
lous mistake could be easily ex
plained. " Let this person explain it,
then," said Cora, trembling all
" Why, you see, Miss," said the
stout man, " I'm a detective officer,
and I've been laying for this youug
gentleman some time. I have his
photograph here, Miss, if you'd
like to see it."
And he produced a i-arte de
visite the very twin of one Cora
had but that moment stowed away
among her treasures. .
" There ain't any mistake about
?rim, is there ?" said the detective,
" But for what for what i he
is is he arrested ?" faltered the
" Why, miss, you see, he left
California too suddenly, with all
the spare cash of the proprietor of
the Pacific Hotel thirty thousand
dollars and a matter of five thou

" But, Mr. Smythe"
" Smythe ! that ain't his name,
Miss. He's plain Bill Higgins,
fancy bar-keeper of the Pacific.
I'm very sorry for you, Miss. I
don't s'pose you had any idea who
you were with. Good morning."
She looked at Montgomery
Smythe, but he did not raise his
eyes nor open hi3 mouth. Plainly,
the detective had told the truth.
She turned to the hotel. Hap
pily, the whole affair had escaped
Montgomery Smythe was al
ready on his way to the depot, arm
in arm with the stout man, and as
they turned a bend in the road
Cora took a last, sad farewell look
at her prince. The shock made
her seriously ill, and when she
recovered the nonsense was
pretty thoroughly washed out of

The hopelessness of any one's
accomplishing anything without
pluck is illustrated by an old East
India fable. A mouse that dwelt
near the abode of a great magician
was kept in such constant distress
by its fear of a cat, that the magi
cian taking pity on it, turned it
into a cat itself. Immediately it
began to suffer from its fear of a
dog, so the magician turned it into
a dog. Then it began to suffer from
fear of a tiger, and the magician
turned it into a tiger. Then it
began to suffer from its fear of
huntsmen, and the magician in dis
gust, said, " Be a mouse again. As
you have only the heart of a mouse,
it is impossible to help you by giv
in you tho body of a nobler
animal." And the poor creature
again became a mouse.

Whab an Old Man Has Noticed
I have noticed that ail men are
honest when well watched.
I hae noticed that purses will
hold dimes as Well as dollars.
I have noticed that in cnl- r u
be a reasonable creature it is nec
essary at times to be downright
I have noticed that silks, broad
cloths and jewels, are often bought
with other people's money.
1 have noticed that the prayer of
tho selfish man, is "Forgive us our
debts," while he makes everybody
who owes him pay to the utmost
I have noticed that he who thinks
every man a rogue i- certain to see
one when he shaves himself, and
he ought, in mercy to his neigh
bor, to surrender the rascal to jus
tice. I have learned that money is the
fool's wisdom, the knave's reputa
tion, the poor man's desire, the
covetous man's ambition, and the
idol of all.
I have noticed that all men speak
well for all men's virtues when
they are dead, and the tombstones
are marked with the epitaphs of the
good and virtuous. Is there any
particular cemetery where the bad
are buried ?"
The present Emperor of Russia,
Alexander II., is in most respects
unlike the rest of European sover
eigns. He is neither fond of mili
tary pageants, like his uncle, Wil
liam I. of Germany ; nor does he
like to occupy himself with state
affairs, like Francis Joseph of Aus
tria. Victor Emmanuel's affability
toward the lowly is foreign to his
haughty reserved nature and his
own people even charge him with
being more of a German than one
of their own race. I'ut in one
respect Alexander II., shares the
predilections of his brother sover
eigns : he is a passionate hunter.
And in this respect he is a true
Russian, too ; for his favorite sport,
like that of the- true Muscovites, is
neither deer-stalking nor fox hunt
ing, neither spearing the wild-boar
nor followed the swift-footed ibex
and chammois to their AIninc fast-
I nesses, but bearding the brown bear
