BY ISAIM1RK ROfiF.lt*. “How much trouble and anxiety a way ward and impulsive girl, ignorant of the ways of the world,yet too wise in her own conceit to listen to the advice of those whom age and relationship entitle to give it, causes to the hearts of those who un | selfishly seek to guard her welfare.” Such were the reflections of Mrs. Hamp I ton as she sat alone in her quiet room one evening, after hcryoungand pretty daugh j ter had gone out with a party of acquain I lances. These reflections were caused by I the marked attentions which a certain | young man was liestow ing ui>on the love | ly daughter, for whom the mother felt so ! much solicitude. Harvey Wane was a handsome young ■ man, of respectable parentage, but Mrs. Hampton’s observing eye had detected the fact that he possesaed disagreeable char acteristics whieli would cause him to be an unpleasant companion and prevent her •laughter from enjoying the greatest o f all earthly blessings, a happy and har monious Rome, if she should become his ! wife. She did not dare to let matters take | their natural course, because indications I were in favor of such a result, and she knew, also, that there was a strong flavor of perversity in the girl's nature that need ed only the spur of opposition to impel her to a rash and hasty step. Mrs. Hampton wa« not the woman to stand idly by and see her daughter's hap piness wrecked upon the shoals of an un happy marriage without making an effort to prevent it. and so slip cautiously laid her plans for future action. "Virginia." she said on the following morning, “Mr. Wade has serious inten tions of becoming a me miter of our fami ly, has he not ?” "You are very quick to guess,” replied the girl; “It was only last night that he mentioned it.” “And from the favor with which you seem to regard him I do not suppose that lie urged his suit in vain?” asked the mother. “Not in vain, by any means,” replied Virginia. “I am sure I can be happy with no other, but I didn't see fit to tell Rim so last night.” “And why not, may I ask ?” inquired Mrs. Hampton. “I did not mean that he should think that I was too easily won,” said the girl, “and so delayed my answer.” “That was’a sensible thought,” replied the mother; “I wonder that it occurred to vou.” “I am not so thoughtless as I seem; three months henee will lie time enough, lmt 1 know mv heart already.” ‘•I should like to be better acquainted with him.” said Mrs. Hampton. “I wish vnu would invite him to spend his even ings here in the family frequently. I do not want my son-in-law to seem like a stranger.” “You seem to be more willing to part with me than I supposed you would be. I expected to hear a lecture about my youth and inexperience, at least.” “You will hear no such thing," said Mrs. Hampton. “You are seventeen years old. and if you don’t know your own mind you ought to.” “1 am surprised that you offer no objec tions. I would have followed him across the Rocky Mountains, though,” said Vir ginia, disappointedly. “Yon won't get the chance,” said Mrs. Hampton, decidely. "Whatjobjeotioncould l possibly have to a handsome young man like Harvey Wade?” “I don’t know. I am sure, but he rather expected it.” “He is very much mistaken, and I shall take all possible pains to convince him of his error. Besides, you know that this is an affair of your own ; if he proves to be as disagreeable as a hedgehog, I shan't have to live with hint. Yon have a right to choose for yourself, and it seems you have chosen. All that remains for me to do is to make you both as happy as possi ble.” Mrs. Hampton not only extended a cor dial invitation to Mr. Wade to visit them frequently, but instructed Virginia's broth ers to do the same, and ere long he be came almost a constant visitor. Mrs. Hampton always spoke of him to Virginia as her intended husband, and when an in vitation came from his sisters for Virginia to spend a week with them, the mother ac cepted it at once, without consulting the young lady herself. “It will be an excellent opportunity for vou to become accustomed to the ways of the family.” she said: “you may be obliged to live with them awhile, for you know that Harvey is not able to begin housekeeping upon his own account just yet, and although we will do as well as we can by you. we could not fit you out with an establishment of your own at present, and you need feel no delicacy about going, for Harvey will not be at home this week.” “I wish you had consulted me before you sent a reply.” said Virginia, pettish ly. but nevertheless she went. “How did you enjoy your visit?" asked Mrs. Hampton, when her daughter re turned.
