APPEAL TO THE BARBEaB. 0, barber, spare that young moustache I Touch not a single hair. Your razor, brush and other trash, Must never venture there. At last the bud has bursted out, By much eamesing taught ; Its frail young tendrils, how tiey spout I Then, harber, touch it not. Though well laid out and wide the feld, e When this young moustache shoot, The sickly soil no more can yield O, then, guard well its roots ; For should thy murderous blade sweep o'er That curved lip's shadowy mist, The tender plant would bloom no more : Then, barter, O, desist. Think of the fair young girl whose lip Was wont so soft to press That budding mouth-its sweets to ip ; O, think of their distresm I 'Tis unfl dged manhood's pride and joy ; f With sighs and tears 'twas bought, Lot no rude stroke its life destroy 0, barber, touch it not ! "*OUI STORY TEILLER." IN SPITE OF THEMSELVES By Miss F. Howneow, author of &Kar.m.m's Love Story. Miss Anna Manners drew her scissors from the collection of housewifely instra ments which hung at her severe-looking girdle, an ctut her thread with a little snap which was a thought vindictive. " If you cared for women, John, " she said, " I should think it necessary to warn you ; but as you don't care for wo men, I merely tell you as a piece of in formation. She is a fascinating, hand somc, unscrupulous flirt. That is all I have to say." John Manners was a bachelor, whose only sister kept house for him. His re sidence was one of the most beautiful within thirty miles of Boston, and that is saying a great deal. He had just re turned from a year in Europe, and Anne was speaking of a distant cousin, whom he found visiting his sister. He smiled the quiet smile, which was peculiar to him, as he threw his paper aside and made himself a little more comfortable on his luxurious lounge. "All I" he repeated, in a voice as quiet and peculiar, in spite of its faint amluse ment, as the smile had been. "Isn't it quite enough, Anne? Women are pro verpially severe upon women, and per hals- ---, Miss Anne interrupted him with an other snap of her scissors. "Severo ! don't talk nonsense," orato rically. "That girl is twenty years old, and she is forty as regards artfulness this minute. Three days showed me how to see through her airs and graces. She can't make eyes at me, you know! I know better. Didn't she begin with young Bellasye, and turn his ridiculous head upside down with her flowers and nonsense, and didn't that unfortunate sampleton propose to her within a fort night ? Severe, indeed!" John laughed outright. His sister's irate description of her guest amused him.He had heard of Cecil Dare, before he returned home, and as it happened' l.e was not unprepared to meet her ; but the geutleman who had described her dangerous proclivities had described them with a masculine remembrance of' her beauty, and ad ended with some thing like admiration even for this mod ern Enchantreesn his tone. "You hadl better take care of yourself,"' had been his laughing bfrewelL "*Mism Dare does not pay risits to her thirty- 1 second cousin for nothing." ' But, "forewarned foiwrured," John t had thought Yethefelt a kitint interest I in this dangerous young permon. As 5 Mises Anne had mid, he did not care for I women genuerally for he was thirty, well- 1 hl*ing, welu-to-do, and still nry treUe; i iut his natural glavity had been siomed * :uto s~onmething of a pwisure in the an- 8 icilation of seeing, hearing, and talking t " her. ' ''tliere is Miss Dare now ?" he'asked. I have seenu nosign of Ir as yet, except 8 "'nlidon!"'. Cupidon, be it known, was t iy toy terier, with no eyes to speak a (' to be seen uander his shaggky, white hiu-, and was MiLi Dads priva lpro "She went out this afternoon," said Miss Anne. "To do her justice, she thought, I suppose, that you and I would rather spend our first few hours alone together. She said she was going to the Dames to see Laura and Josie. Those Dacre girls are perfectly infatuated over her, and Fred came from Harvard last week, so she took the pony-carriage after dinner and drove over." John made no reply, but listlessly be gan' to pull Cupidon's blue ribbon collar, though scareely thinking of her minress Like all men he had an ideal, and hf ideal was not a Cecil Dars Perhaps he had a fancy for a softeyed, sweet-faced little girl, whom he might meet some future day. Certainly, he never dreamed of this fair, proud girl as his fate, and certainly on his first meeting with her the thought was further from his mind than ever. He was still lying upon the oouch, i with Cupidon on a cushion at his feet, when he heard the sound of wheels roll ing up the carriage-drive, and the rig of a refined, musical voice. A moment after the little pony-earriage stopped at the door, and somebody got out This was Miss Dare, John fIanners decided, as he listened, and she was talking gayly with e6me one who had evidently ac companied her, and whose first speech nfirmed his belief that it was Frederick hDacre. "You won't let me come in, of course," he was saying, "after that solemn pro mise that I should perform Laura's be hests. But may I not be allowed to tcall to-morrow ?" '"Certainly," said the clear, insouciant voice. "Any time you like. Don't forget to tell Laura how miserably I kept my rlnomise. Wait a minute-here is a flower for you. The last rose of summer, or the last but one. Au revoir." And turning his head to the window; John saw a handsome, stylish, yoi fellow pass down the gravel walk, fasten ing a creamy pink rose in his eost. He did not see Miss Dare, of courseJ for the parlor-door was nearly closed, bu he heard her lightfeetin the hall, an casught a glimpse of a d uttering dress a she ran up the staircase.r In spite of Miss Manners' remark upoab1 her brother's non-susceptibility, it mua be confeeed that she felt no little fear her young relative's fascinations An o dinarily pretty or charming girl shaloule have trusted, but not one like 4h young lady was not an ordinary girl it .o any sense of the term; accordingly, I su convi>ced, you will agree with me that n1 was rsaher trying to be called away 14n that moseet critical of times, the first inteS m view, by a troublesome rheumatic p sioner.

If there hose had been a suspicion of elaborateness over in her dress, or a touch of ceremony in last her manner, he would have felt that he after needed to stand oan guard; but what could have been mdre elegant in its simpliity be- than the soft, gray robe, what more lar, natural than her graceful self-posmsemion Y , She came to the hearth when he had i r made his grave, pleasant reply, and she She ctainly looked more at home than he mad did, as she pulled the bellas as a mnmon ome totlhe servants to bring in the tea. med "I am sorry cousin Anae was called and Away," she said, when she took her seat her t the head of the table.
