AUNT SALLY'S MUFF.
I1V CHARLES , KENDALL.
Miss Sally Slrong was a peculiar wo
man. For sixty years she had retained
her name, which exactly suited her hard)
nature; and the man having the assur
ance to ask her to exchange it for his
own. would have been a rare companion
for Cutflminaa in his tiger hunt in the
jungles of Africa. At least no one in
the village of B , would dare to
question Ms manhood.
She was one of those who seemed lo
have been born an old maid in perspec
tive. Before she arrived at her teens,
she used lo slone tile boys wilh a malig
nant delight ; and ere she was out of
them, her contempt for the opposite sex
was. so strikingly manifest, that nil pru
dent young men, if aoeldently walking
upon the same sidewalk, (0 avoid a meet
ing, would very quietly cross lo the other
side and allow her llie whole of it.
Yet she was a privileged person, anil
people would smile at nit ill-nalured re
mark from her as though it were a com
pliment. Even the young minister of the
parish treated her with marked respect,
although he was certain t3 have his last
sermon wofully criticised, in answer lo
his kind inquiry regarding her health.
The secret of all this might have been
written in three words she was rich ;
and even the clergyman was worldly
minded enough to desire lo be on good
terms wilh one who was the largest con
tributor to his support.
Aunt Sally, as the villagers universally
called ber, bad received the bulk of her
properly from a deceased aunt, which
her shrewd business qualities had ena
bled her to invest so advantageously, thai
she increased in wealth as she did in
years, and like many other rich people
well advanced in lile, had scores of affeo
liona'e young relatives who each Imped
10 obtain a large slice of the cake of real
estate, which would be cut up in the
event of ber decease. Her old gray
eyes were too shrewd not to see through
their eager attentions to the very seliisb
ness of their source.
One nephew, however, did not belong
lo this class of schemers. On the eon-

One evening, upon the meeting of ihe
parish sewing circle at the house of the
clergyman, this nephew peipetrated a
joke upon his aunt, the result of which
he never forgot. She, unlike most maiden
ladies, considered ihesc gatherings a
fashionable nuisance, but usually was

Her nephew was there ostensibly 10 wait

"Did it ever occur to you, girls," said

asked Fred, maliciously.
That functionary drew himself up
Stiffly, as (hough the imputation was un
worthy of an answer, and stepped aside.
"Well, I never!" exclaimed one of
the young ladies.
"Who could have done it ?" added

"0, fie upon you,aunt ! Such a hint,
and the deacon only a recent widower !"
exclaimed the laughing nephew.
Aunt Sally seized her mutt but the hal
adhered most affectionately to it. By an
angry wrench it was liberated, and the
unoffending hat flew across Ihe entry,
projected by the vigorous foot of the in
censed maiden. When it arrived at the
terminus of its short journey, it had
assumed a most questionable shape, and
its condition might certainly have been
termed "shocking bad.
"I will pay you for this young man."
"Don't trouble yourself, dear aunt.
So far as I am concerned, you are per

"As you please, aunt, since you take
it so seriously, but I didn'l think a silly
joke would have thus offended you."
Time passed on, and young Slrong
prospered famously in his business. He
had amassed sufficient means lo be ena
bled to repay his aunt, the sum she had
loaned him. but she declined receiving it,
alleging that she would rather have it re
main on interest. In the meantime, he
had also persuaded the gentle Lucy to
share his fortunes. As for aunt Sally, a
singular mania seemed 10 possess her.
tn the mailers of real estate, slocks,
etc., she had become a perfect alchemist,
turning all to gold.
The neighbors looked on and wondered,
but none ventured to remonstrate with
her. She was often seen lo visit the
office of Squire A , and it was ru
mored that she wus making arrange
ments, for the bestowal of her property
afler her decease. The affair of Ihe
mull was not ferg itlen, and il was cur
rent with the good villagers that Fed
would have to pay dearly for the juke.
One morning the village was all action.
During ihe night, the spirit of the re
doubtable lady had quietly taken its

chair, and had died as she In I lived,
alone. She had disturbed no one during

Art and Nature in Dress,
Yesterday we slood looking at a
flower bed, into which some really ex
quisilc roses, besides pansies, migno
nettes, English daisies, verbenas, and
other blossoms had been transplanted
Kate, an Irish cook, and a beautiful girl,
by the way, was hanging out Ihe Mon
day's washing to dry, over a plat of rich,
new grass, green and velvety, and de
lightful to ihe eyes and feet. She sym
pathised with our admiration of the
grass, and the delicate, soul-enchanting
roses; "but this," said she, "is the
prettiest flower of (hem all, I think ;"
an I she pointed out a sprig of the Searlel
bloom of the fish-seranivm. Il was the
gayest, and therefore handsomest to her
she required not ihe yearning holiness
of the lily, nor the grace and love inspir
ing perfumes of ihe roses and pansies
We would not give one half expanded
rose bud, with l he blush diffusing itself
oulward from ils odorous heart, lor a
basketful of lisli-geraniums. But which
of us was right ? Often when we have
been thinking npon dress, as a subject for
study, lo be cultivated as a fine art, we
have gone lo nature, who is (he mother I
of arts, for lessons. We have seen that I
she mingles all colors willi effects which
are truly harm' nimis, and why should
we be more arbitrary than she in her
adornment of the lowers, when wu would
prescribe ihe hues anil Combinations fur a
lady's toilets!? The "puritan pansy"
puts on a yellow ves( wilh its purple
robe ; the 'queenly (ulips are gorgeous
with streaks of red and yellow, gay
enough for an Indian squaw ; the florist
labors for rainbow effects in his pel dah
lias ; (he poppy tlaunls her seailel looped
petticoal, and the peony shakes oul her
dozen of crimson jitpvs; the morning-glory
dims her blue robe wilh a scarf of
pink ; while one and all, without excep
lion, find a mantle of green becoming.
Nature tries all kinds of experiments with
(life materials at her command, and her
success is always certain. If nothing in
nature is uglv. then nothing in art is ugly
when it simply copies nalnre ; and il
cannot be truly sail (though it is often
asserted,) thai, good taste limits the col
ors of the toilette, and that drab, black or
white, slightly relieved by some trim
niing ill harmony, not in contrast, is ti e
only really elegant cosiume. If a dahlia
can look well in purple, black an I yel
low, then why not a lady ? If a maiden
fastens the flounces of her azure ball-dress
wilh pink garlands, she is only copying
