Mfss Blanch Bernard had lotety tiair, Wavy, plentiful, golden, with those pe culiarly beautiful lights which Giorgi Dne and Titian hare made immortal, glimmering and sparkling through its In xm'iant waves. Miss Blanch was by B«» means a regulation )x?:iuty, but the •hape of her head was classical, her eyes lar.jje and lustrious, her teeth white and regular, and her form could IK? described but by one word—perfec tion. Yet her hair was her piece de re Mislancc—how many men hare raved ever its splendor and lost their hearts in its golden depths! One I have spec ial cause to remember because he had #ngaged himself to my cousin, a pret ty, lovable little thing, before Miss Ber nard's golden locks dawned upon him snd tangled him their bewildering meshes. Miss Bernard had other attractions besides golden hair, lustrous eyes and milky teeth. She could sing with taste snd feeling, play superbly, dance like a sylph is supposed to dance, and talk like—a woman. Still, as cameliaa, -Which have beauty and dignity, have Bo sweetness, and roses, which have both beauty and fragrance, have Ihoriis, Miss Bernard had her draw backs. Some were merely the faults •f the woman, womanly, and could be ttardoncd by a lover. She had a trick, lor instance, of holding one spellbound t»y dropping her eyes until her lovely #ark lashes were outlined by her bril liant cheeks with pre-Raphaelite dis tinctness, then lifting her white lids and flashing the full glory of her haxel orbs upon her masculine adorer. I have seen this manceuver practiced with deadly effect not only by Miss Bernard, but by scorcs of pretty worn tn, violet-eyed, hazel-eyed, black-eyed and gray bat 1 warn cross eyed girls, white eyed girls and girls with white, pig-like lashes to beware of it Then, her head feeing classical, she invariably wove her hair after a simple and most charming fashion—coiling its gleaming masses in a heavy, careless knot. This style had three-fold advantages: first, it was a delightful contrast to the heads of womankind in general, and gave Miss Bernard a distinct and striking style •f her own secondly, it was especially Incoming and eminently calculated to display to the utmost the beauty of her shapely head and lovely hair thirdly. It had the advantage of tumbling over er graceful shouldersjn most admired upon the least provocation. If Miss Bernard waltzed, her hair had a way of loosening its gleaming coils If she threw back her he ul and laughed —a cade 11 cod. musical laugh which of itself was enough to take captive the most obdurate and unimpressible of men—l.er hair showerel down liko a mist of gold if she romped with Bertha, liu* year-old niece, down came ber golden fleece. And when lustrous eyes and dewy lips sparkled and smiled from out this shimmering mass of tumbled gold, St. Anthony himself could not have resisted her, at lc»8t for the first time he should behold the vis ion after he had seen it a score of limes, its charm would depart with its Hoveltj\ It was this, to me, transpar ent trickery of the falling hair which was the most potent oharm to my cousin's lover. Being the sworn cham pion of womankind. I will not insinu ate that all ladies with luxuriant tress es allow them to tumble about la this promiscuous ashion. Miss Bernard's thorns were of a more pronoi need character than the Taneties I lave reeouuterd. If her eyes were flashing ami fiery, so was ber temper, nd, though her lips could Smile sweetly, she had, like Petrucio's Kate, "a tongue with a tang" within tier dewy rosus. As a just and trust ful raconteur I must testify that I slways found her tongue velvety and the temper sweet as milk and honey, but my cousin's lover discovered the volcanic nature of her temper on one, to him, memorable occasion. Clai ence was a frank, merry, good-looking young fellow, whose personal attrac tions were intensified by a fortune of sonic hundreds of thousands of dollars. He was tin parti pris, and Miss Bern ard k ew it. Miss Bernard had a pas sion for young men with mbney, while Clarence had a passion for H.ituralness in women, personal and otherwise, and thought Miss Bernard tvus the most ingenious, as she was the loveliest and most fascinating of girls. He came Into my room one night With a face pale aud troubled. "Fred," he said, "I have a confes sion to make, and I want your advice and sympathy—no, your sympathy I feavc no right to claim, but I believe jour counsel will be good and worth lol lowing." "I am flattered by yonr opinion," I returned, laying aside the book I was leading. "What is your troubleP" "You know I am engaged to Bessie" —Bessie is my pretty little cousin. "Yes," 1 answered, laconically. "And you know—you know"—-be fcesitated and colored. I kuow a great many things, but this special Utiug youatis golug to till me.* "You know I am in love with Blanch Bernard." •'I have every reason to believe so. ••Iknow I am a wretch—a villain of the first water—" "I can't quite agree with yon," I in terrupted "still—" I paused at this point, rather doubtful of how to pro ceed. "I told yoo, Fred, that I didn't ex pect your sympathy—" ••And yet you have it," I interrupted again, with a significant shrug. "I'm sure I'm an object of sympa pathy," he said, dejectedly "engaged to one woman and madly in love with another one. Bessie is the best, the Sweetest, the dearest girl on earth, but —oh! Fred, what shall I do? I am tempted, sometimes, to take a pistol and make an end of the whole misera ble affair. If a man could marry both of them—but that is impossile." '•Clearly imjtossiblc so you must select some safer channel for the course of your true love than suicide or big am v." "Well, I came to ask your advice, and whatever you advise—Fred, I am the most miserable man on earth and see no possible way out of my difficul ties." "The first thing to do," I said, 'is to ask Bessie to release you from your present bondage the second, to ask Miss Bernard"— "I can't bear to think of asking Bes sie" "Sit right down here st once," 1 Said, authoritatively, placing a chair st my writing-desk, "and write the exact truth to Bessie. You will have to break with her sooner or later, and the sooner it is dons the better for you both." "You are very anxious," he said, pettishly. "I believe you've always had a liking for Bessie yourself." "And so I have," I said, smiling at this betrayal of pique and jealousy. "You have no right to be jealous, as you no longer care for her." "I do care for her, I am devoted to her, but not in the way I care for Blanch." "Exactly just as I said. Now, Clarence, no nonsense if you are tired of the old love, be off with her as soon as you please, but don't make love to the old and Hie new at one and the same time. I don't understand how a man who has been in love with a girl like Bessie could descend to a Blanch Bernard, but every one to his taste. To be sure, have arrived at years of discretion, and can no longer be led captive by a pair of brilliant eyes and a mass of shining bair. I admit there is a wide diXerence between twenty five and thirty-five." Clarence flushed hotly. "Major Reynolds," he exclaimed, spiritedly, "is as mad about Blanch as I am. He makes himself absurb when ever he is in her presence, and I am sure you can't make his youth a pre text for sneering at his taste and judg ment" I can't account for his madness except on the principle that one fool makes many, or that extremes meet, and an old fool and a young fool meet on the same plane," I replied, smiling ly and placidly. "I am ready to admit that I am a fool—in your opinion—and the ques tion will require no arguing," he said impatiently, fingering his moustache nervously. "But I came to you for advice, not criticism. Now tell me, Fred, seriously, do you think I would be justified, honorably justified, in breaking with Bessie under the cir cumstances?" "Seriously, Clarence, I think you would be justified in doing nothing else you would certainly not be hon orably justified in marrying one woman while in love with another one. Do not allow yourself to be deceived by any false and sentimental notions of honor. If you have ceased to love Bessie, tell her so at once." "Well, I will," he said, resolutely. He seated himself at my desk and wrote a letter which he entrusted to me to deliver. 1 decided in my own nltnd that Clarence's infatuation for Miss Bernard was but a fleeting illusion, for I had seen other men as ready to commit su icide on her account as he, and yet they still lived. One desperate lover I had known bought enough cold and deadly ioison to put out the lives of a dozen men, and another had a com plete armory of death-dealing weap ons, aud only hesitated because he couldn't decide whether a derringer, a rifle or a bowie knife would be the pleasantest road to purgatory. The last mentioned lover hesitated so long that he forgot all about Miss Bernard's charms before he made up his mind as to the best mauner of shuffling off this mortal il, and finally decided not to force it off at all until he should be forced to and the first one, by my sage advice, concluded to sleep on his suicidal thoughts. He did sleep on them, and completely smothered not only all thoughts of suicide, but his flame for Miss Bernard as welL Knowing how harmlessly the fevered madness had affected my other friends, 1 wisely determined to keep Clarenoe's letter a while, patiently awaiting fur ther developments. The sequel proved the advantage of experience for, two nights later he came into my room with a face whose palor and wretched ness had magically disappeared. "Fred," he asked, rather falteringly, "did you post my letter to Bessie?" "You desired me to forward it as soon as possible," I answered, equivoc ally. •Tm the most miserable fool alive!" he cried despairingly. "I wish some body would knock my brains out— brains? I haven't any to knock out! Oh, Fred, Fd give every dollar I pos sess not to have written that letter." "Why? I thought it was a gem of a letter for a man who desires to be off with the old love before he is on with the new." I don't want to be on with the new. I wouldn't give Bessie for a million Blanch Bernards. Why is it we can never kuow how blessed we are until we have lost the one thing that makes life worth living?" "Our primeval curse, Adam and Eve's legacy to us," I answered, laugh ingly. "What troubles you now? Have you no longer any Mormonistic fancy for two wives?." "If you please, Fred, don't chaff about it. I am too wretched to endure it with patience. Do you think, Fred, if I would write another letter, ex planatory, asking to be reinstated in my. old position, that Bessie would pardon my brief defection?" "It is possible. But what has come over the spirit of your love-dream that you aro so quickly disillusioned I knew that if your fever could run on for s month or two longer before it readied the crisis of a proposal that JXfa WOOLD pom OUT QTH RIFTY TAT I am as much surprised ss pleased at your speedy return to your senses." "Well," he said, coloring vividly "don't laugh, please—well, I called on Blanch last night. She never looked lovelior. I have seen more beautiful women, but I swear I never saw a more fascinating one. She received me, as she always does, with open arms, as a figure of speech, you under stand, and made herself ss charming as possible. She sang to me, she played to me, she enchanted me and fooled me, like a nineteenth century Vivien, until 1 lost the little sense that remained to ma And I had opened my lips—actually opened my lips —to ask her to marry me, when the front' parlor door opened. At this stage of the comedy we were sitting in the moonlight in the back parlor, and Clem cried, hastily and abruptly: 'I say, Blanch, cousin Jule wants your paints and stuff. She wants to make a whited sepulcher of herself for Captain O'Neil's benefit like you do for Mr. Ashford's. She's got an en gagement with him, and the night's so warm and her face so shiny she thought a little powder on her nose would im prove matters. She told me to be in a diokens of a hurry and—' 'That's enough' Clem,* Miss Blanch interrupted, laughingly as for me, Fredj I fell like Don Jnan musJl have felt when the statute of the Commander invited him to supper— •we'll dispense with any more of your pleasantries for to-night. The boy is a most inveterate practical joker, Mr. Ashford, and nothing delights him more than to tease mo. Knowing you were with mo, he got up this little im promptu for your benefit as well as mine.' "But her laugb sounded, to my sus picious mind, forced and embarrassed. And when she uttered my name. 1 heard a suppressed snicker and an as tonished interjection from Clem as he hurriedly fled from the scene that con vinced me he had suspicion of my pres ence. I was convinced beyond a doubt later, for having left my cane behind me—I had no design in leaving that useful article of bric-a-brac behind me, but the exciting episode I have nar rat upset my nerves and made me absent minded—1 returned to get it I quietly entered the vestibule intending to reclaim my property and depart without announcing my presence to Miss Blanch, and 1 heard her voice in an angry altercation with her brother that disgusted me and disenchanted me at once. What a remarkable tal ent some men have for mendacity. Fred! I hastily left the house without attempting to recover my cane, think ing regretfully of Bessie's low, sweet and clean unpainted face. And here I am—ready to do any thing to win her back again." Clarence has the most unbounded and most unreasonable prejudice with regard to painting, for in his opinion a woman who paints her face and puts a little powder on her nose to improve matters is capable of all the sins for bidden in the Decalogue. I knew that Miss Bernard's reign was over, and I felicitated myself on my discretion in retaining Bessie's letter. 1 handed it to him saying: "Ikepl the letter awhile, thinking you might change your mind. Per haps you'd better hold on to it, in case your fickle fancy should wander again. As I have before remarked, it's a mod el letter of its kind." He tore it into infinitesimal bits as he replied: "I'll have no further use for that sort of literature. All the sirens of the world, from Cleopatra down to Blanch Bernard, couldn't win one of my thoughts from Bessie." And I believe he was right At all events she has found him thus far the most, constant and devoted of hus bands. And she has not the faintest suspicion of his, and her own, hair breadth escape from Miss Bernard's golden and rosy fascinations.—8. C. Lasselle, in Current. ALASKA'S ATMOSPHERE. A Country Whtrs the Air la Literally Bordsosd with Moisture. Lieutenant Schwatka, in making the inland passage to Alaska, at one point went ashore, among the wilds of the Alexander Archipelago, and he de scribes the vegetation which he en countered as being most rank and luxuriant At the feet of the ever greens clothing the land, grew a dense mass of tangled bushes and vines, and the roots of these wss a solid carpeting of mosses, lichons and ferns, which often ran up the trees to a hight greater than a man's reach. All this dense growth is as moist as a sponge. The thick carpeting of moss extends from the shore to the edges of the glaciers on the mountain summits, snd the constant melting of ice through the warm summer keeps it saturated with water. The air is burdened with moisture, and every thing is, like Mr. Mantalini's proposed body, "moist and unpleasant." It is almost impossible to realize the dampness of this region, without hav ing experienced it Water drips from overhead, like an April mist, and oozes up beneath tho feet as one walks. As an example of the luxri ance of the vegetation, take the In dian's "totem-poles," which, although they are dead timbers standing on end near the native houses, bear huge clumps of dripping moss and foliage at heights varying from ten to thirty feet from the ground. It will be well to explain in passing, that these totem poles are covered with very eurioui carvings, and although no one is at all sure of their significance, it is probable that they represent genealogies or tri bal histories of the Indians. It often happens that the seed of s Sitka spruce bccomes lodged iu the tan gle of moss resting upon a totem-pole, and there germinates. Its roots crawl down the pole, and, having reached the earth, find additional sustenance there, which they send to the branches flour ishing above and which have thus far been nourished by the juices furnished by the moss. Imagine a city boy tossing a walnut from his window, so that it lodges upon s telegraph-pole, sprouts there, sende down it roots to the earth, snd waxes into such a tall tree that the boy oan lean from his window, and pick wal nuts from it every autumn! That ides is incredible, and yet its equivalent often happens in Southeastern Alyafca.
