There wt not a wrinkle in my pale .(raw-colored kidglovci wheu I started and as I K"t out '"t0 tb0 hriglil July luuahiue, 1 could not hcl .uiilinjr alter all with te!f-aliefitction. I wan by no means the earliest arrival at The Elms, aud as I reached the gato 1 could sco the waggonettes waiting, and theladiee' dresses through the trees as tho merry pnrty rolled about the lawn, wailing for Ihn hour to start-eleven precisely. llowdo, Jacksou?aid AVinnie's father brutiji.cly, as he gavo tny straw-kidded, band a fijueezc, and Iaawbiuiruu his eye superciliously over my costume, with Uio coufccijucnco that a hot Hush ran up to tho roots of my hair, and 1 felt quill cross as I walked across the lawn to where Winnie Morris was standing amid a group of friends. I want to have five tninntes' talk with you, Mist Morris, 1 said gravely. Will you let mo spcuk lo you when we are at tho grove? Cti'tuinly, Mr. Jackson, said she, half laughing at tny serious aspect; aud then I was alone and very uncomfortable; for nobody seemed to niako any advances to me as I stalked solemnly about. There's a rosebud for you, Fred, cried a merry voice, aud AVinuie jerked one lo mo out of a basket. I felt better then, till I saw tbat she distributed one to every gentleman In tho parly, when I felt wortc. At labt we were off, and I tat sulkily at tho end ono of tho wagonettes, for old Morris had frustrated all my plans to get near Winnie on the journey down lo the grove, whero the picnic was to bo in honor of Winnie's eighteenth birthday. We reached Iho selected place, and at laht I contrived tbat Winnie and I should bo alone In ono of tho glades whero in impassioned tones I spoke of my love, begging for a reply. Ucally, Fred, cried Winnie at last, drawing away bcr baud, I don't think yoa ought lo ask for an answer now, I have always liked you. But I ask for your lore, I said, gloomi ly. Why, wo are both very young )ct, Fred, aud Come, wetnut got buck lo our friends. You reject nio then? I'm afraid yon are hungry, young mau said a voice that cimo upon me like a thnndcr-clnp, or you would not talk in that Iiyrouic strain. I did not come to listen to you, but if young people choose lo talk ii ii IT in public pluccs Ihey must lake the consequences. I guzed at the burly figure and straw bat before me, fueling endless hirynilia lion . Fa pa I exclaimed Winnie, blushing. Noi cross, tny dear. You've boh ivcd very ecm-ibly. Now, young man, you mean marrrhige, 1 suppose? Of course, sir. Wbat is your income? Well, sir, only a hundred a jesr, but Yes; of ccmrsc, iiuprovii and thai sort of thing. Yoa are a clerk to the Ulo firm ol OreeJio A Spray? To the firm, ir,and in their confidence. Late firm. In the O'izctte this morn ing, railed, lour incomo u nothing. Dinner's ready. Come, if you aio not. afraid of soiling yourself. It was all over then. This was why I so easily got a holiday. I was desperate as the stern old follow marched us off (o lbs dinner spread beneath a great oak, and Winnie did noi even glaucc at me. 1 lore off tny delicate gloves with a iis;i sava.e ttm:c; bttug my bat on a tree, aud kneeling down on the gra, I act to carving chickens for the guests. I can't degrade myielf too moch now, I said to in) self; and somehow in work ing hard, aud grtiing terribly hot in sat- isfylng the want of others, 1 forgot my I own troubles, even wondering tbat li tlionld laugh good hanioredly when In ; opening some bottled stout It spurted all ' over my pale veit and showy thirl.

Her disgrace is nothing to you; ills iioiio of your business. If we had our way, meddlers should bo pun ished liko any other offenders against the rights of others. TAKIVU A LOAD. It is pretty well kunwu that during William II. Vanderbill's youth his father the Commodore, had very little confi dence in his sagacity or business ability. Against the advice of some of his friend, he persistently declined tho young man's co-opcraticu becauso ho believed him stupid. A story is current on Slatcit Island, N. Y,, which goos to show how the Com modore' eyes came to bo opened to the mistake into which bo bad allowed him self lo fall concerning bis oldest boy. William owned a farm near hi father's, and finding that It required fertilization, bo applied to his father. How tnach do you want? inquired the Commodore. Ob, about a load, said the son. Certainly, I can spare that, was tho reply. When tho Commodore visited bis place the next week, ho fotmd that hi yards and stablo were swept clean of tho great heaps of composits which he had allowed to accumulate. Why, how in this? be said lo bis fanner. Your son canio nud got it, was the answer, lie suid you gave hint permis sion. The Commodore went fuming lo Wil liam, and snid In a bustling way: Sec here, young man, whnt have you been about; bow dared you to cart off nil my manure? You said I could have it, was tl.fi re joiuder. You told me to take a load. A load! why, you have got every bit there is. 1 only took a load, fuller a sloop load. The old man's eyes were opened, and he concluded to give bis son a slice of stock to operato with, and soon after mado him vice president of the Central road. I'll K TO WICK (IP I.I) !)' Tbey use the famous White Tower now as a storehouse for arms. It con tains, this minute, 102,000 guns, all In perfect order, beside a vast collection of old armor and weapon.

WOUAV4 C I HIOHITV. John, laid Mr. Sauncripi to her hut band one evening last week, I've been reading the paper. Thai's nothiti', gruuted John. I've teen people be lore who read iiettiiier. Yes; but there are several things in the paper 1 can't un derstand. Then dou'l read 'em. Wbat do they mean about the strike, John? What is a strike, anyhow? A strike Is where Ihey have struck, and auscript knocked the ashes from his cigar. 1 dou't grasp your meaning exactly, said Mrs. S., with a puzzled look. Now thoso strikers bave stopped all tho railroad trains in tho country. Why do they do it? To prevent 'em from running. Yes, but why didn't they want trains to run? IlccatHO they wanted more money for running them. Do they pay more for stopping trains llian for running them? No, you stupid woman. Then why in tho world did they stop 'em why didn't they run more of 'om and run 'em faster? Seems to me that would pay belter. Mary Ann, you will never surround tho problem. Maybe not, John. Sorno things are gotten np purposely to bother women," Now, here a column hcadod baso ball. What is base ball, John? Don't you kuow what base ball is? Hap py woman! you bavo not lived in vain, liero it says that tho Harlfords could not collar CummSngs' curves? It's tho way he deliver tho ball. Is the ball chulucd? No, you booby. Then how does lie, de liver il? I mean pilches it. Oh! Now hero it says Jones muffed a ball alter a hard run. What was the ball doing after a hard run? Hadn't you belter confine your research to tho obilnary and mar riuge columns, Mary, with an accasiuual advertisement thrown in to vary tho mo notony? Yes, but, John, I want to know! There's Mrs. Kackct, over the way, who goes to all tho buso bull games and comes homo to talk mo blind about fly funis, brace hits, sky scrapers, and all llioso thing. For heaven's sake, John, what Is a skyscraper? Compose your self, old woman. You are treading on dangerous ground ; your feet are on slip pery rocks, while raglug billows roll bo ueBlb. Mercy on me! What do you mean? I mean, dear madam, that when over a woman begins to pry about among these strikes, fair balls, baso hits, daisy cutters, home runs and kindred subjects, she's in danger of being lost. Well, I must confess I'm completely lost to know what this newspaper means when It says Addy stole a baso whilo tho spectators applauded. Have we como lo such a pass that society will appland a theft? Why wasn't Addy arrested? Now hero's Manning put ont by Sturt, assisted by Carey, aud I can't see that he did any thing wrong, cither. Jemima Christo pher! Here it says that Pike flew out. I don't believe a word of it. I neyer saw a man fly yet, aud I won't believe it can be done till I see it with my own eyes. John what makes thct-e newspaper men lie so horribly? John was asleep, and Mrs. Sunscript turned gloomily, noi to -ay skeptically, to tho leilcr list for information. News papers, were not mado for women. hi Kit I III MII.OI .)(.

An or der to bo on parado next morning was the least punUhmeiit expected for this breach ol discipline. Soue days pasucd, however, and, no notice being taken, it was thought an aKlogy and explanation should be offered by the pritno instigator of Iheso uusoldieriy movements. A ref erence being mado to the memorable night the colonel amazed the Intended apologist by excluimiug: Hush, sergeant, I would not have any body know it for the world! Tho fuel is, I bad been dining ont with an old brother and 'pon my life I had no idea tho wine could have had such an effect npon me, bnt when I came to sr-e if you were all right in your quarters I could hive sworn that 1 saw yoa ail uptidc down!

You have seen lhat apron flung over its owner' head liko tho knit ted cloud of modern times, when tho went to tho next neighbor's.

Then, bavo a cara! If a uiuti is bent on sowing Iho wind, you should bo wise enough to lake care tht )ou do not cxposo yourself to reap tins terror of tho whirlwind. Above all things, a young lady should abhor Iho courtship of a wilful profligate, being kssured that ho Will bo as faithless to his wilo as to other women. Meet bis advances cold y especially if bo considers himself irre sistible, as ho doublltss dots as the wound lo his KiIMovo muy possibly re sult in making him see himself as other soe him. And you need uot besituto to let him know why you repel his advsn. ccs. If ho has the stamina to slU. iu t to regain bis manliness of character, a sharp yei sympathetic rebuke from a lady whom he reepeel may do much to put him on I ha way toward a icfnmiiioii of life. .Should ho show Liuiiulf corirciou of his falao poitioii, put him on a long probation Of good hil.uv.or, acd govern your own relations lo him a cix-piliig .
