The rooms were filled to overflowing, tho ntuiroaeB were obokcid, the heat wna intolerttUe. 8ir Tlioimw and Iady Higgins had actually pnt in an appearance after all, and the nilpper, if uneatable," was, I ansa re yon, vm-y eij)eiiive. ' No puiua or money had lioen spared ; everything waa what the miHtreiw of tho house called "rug regal ;" and all tho Minn Browurigg locked an charming aa any one conld dewire. There were four of them. There waa Kale, tho aocoud daughter Snookk' friend, and tho possessor of the lovely eyes. And they were lovely ; large, and trucand tender; like the North, according to the Iiftnreate ; "black aa sloe," said Lor fond.if dlightly epprewtiva inotlier, and tif the languid, melting orde. v Then there waa Hetty, tho eldeat girl, wo", if her eyea were not an dark aa mid night, had at hast the dearest little now in tho world. A pure Oreek feature, per fect in every reaped, ignorant of coldn in th head, that made one long to tell her (only alio Wimld have, Muhed, they were all nioely brought up) a'Miut Iad uud her riiidiun appendage. Then came (lenrgin "ttoorge. the Third," aa ahe waa playfully called in the Worn of her family who, if alio had neither eyes nor none like her Butter, had certainly t prist tier month than lither. A wc4 little kiaaabki roaebud J a mouth, that Miuli.'d and laughed alternately, aud did conaiderableexecntion. Aud finally there w aa Lilly. A tall, pale girl, with blue even, a finely cut chin, and a good deal of determination all round. Katie'a eyoa were larger, darker, and (alien ahe looked at Snook a and thought of hi tliimnindu) more melting than ever tb;tt bi&lit. Her dreaa, if kligbtly liiairre, wan iutviifu'ly becoming. Hnooka for the fn.t half hour kept himaclf bravely aloof from her faacioationa, decliiil to notice her reproachful glanoea, and languishing trittmln, and for reward waa wretched. Finally, 1 icing driven into a corner during a fatal act of Lanecra, lie met her eyes, iaw, and waa conquered. She would dance the next with him? Yea (coldly). And the next? Ye (more gently). And the ninth )tn can aee that aba , in disen Raged fur it? Ye (thi time juite warm- An hour later the did waa done. Some capital champagne, a dark 'avenue (I be lieve there were aome Chineae lanterna there originally, bnt a kind wind had l.l.iwfi tli.cinnll an.l a aoft HhIa Lari.1 i aU(pet into Lia, did the work ; and Mia Katie had promised baahfnlly, but with 1 , nnruixlakalile willingn-M, to las the future Mr. HiKx.Va.

It waa the champagne, I anppiae, and of rourne you know ahe ia pretty; bnt I do not want to marry any one, And I know the governor wouldn't hear of it. Hi) will have to hear of it uw, won't he? aaked Wilding, unfeelingly. He would go out of hi mnj if audi a thing waa even hinted to hill, dec lured Snooka, wddly. Try to heJy me out of it. Wilding, can't you? I don't know what there ii to do except marry her. I only hope LaaW Hnooka aud Miaa (oruchauJIer will get ou. Aud you should think of Lor beauty, rou know ; dotibtleaa it will conaole yoi when Sir I'ebst eutayou off with theoiutomary hil ling. . 1 1 nppoae I had better cut my throat and put au end to the matter, aaid Snooks diaiually, and then overcouti, no doubt by the nielavauboly of thil suggestion he breaks down and given way to tears. . I say, don't do that, you kiow, exclaim ed Wilding indignantly. Wtf-ping all over tbe place won't improve matters, and will only tend to make you a wo'hs fool than nature intended, when you go out of the room. If you have pnt you' foot in it, at leakt try to liear misfortune liko ft man. Look here, angrily, if you are going to keep up this hideous boohioing I'll leave the room, and yon too, to yur fate. It's downright indecent. They will bear you in the next house if yon ion't moderate your grit I ; : ". As the uenrefit house woi a quurter of a mile off, thia was severe. I shouldn't care if they ieard me in the next town, said Mr. Snooka, w ho whm ipiite too fur gone for shame. , There is just one chance for you, and only one, aaid Wilding shwly. I have an idea aud you must intlier lollow it, or go to the altar. I'll follow anythjug, eagerly. What is it? Y'on have proposed to Miss Kate, sol emnly. Now go and propose to the other three. As Wilding gave vent to lis idea he turned nbrnbtly on hi lieel aul left the room. I'll do it, said Snooks valientk, drying bis eyes and giving bis breast a iragic tup, "whatever comes it" Going into the hall, he saw Ilitty stand ing near an entrance ; a little wty beyond luir was Kate conversing with ft loll and lanky youth. Not daring to ghnce in the direction of tbe latter, who jilsnly expect ed him to come straight to )er on the wings of love, be turned and aiked Hetty to dance, They danced, and then (itvasthe cus tom with tbe ball-goers in tliat suburban ueighliorhood) he drew her oit under the gleaming stars and up thu .tak avenue, that a few miiiuU-4 aiuce wai tbe scene of her sinter's happiness. There he proposed in due tirin, and was again aeepted. Hetty's no id net, indeed was perhaps a degree tnori pronounced than Katie's, because she laid her head npon his shoiitder, and be felt that he was IkjiiiuI by all the laws of sentiment to kiss her. Her tiose looked to lovely iti the pale moonlight ; so I dan any he did not find the fulfilling of this ktw difficult. After that he baf aomo more, a good deal more champagne ; aud then be pro poxed to Miss ( leorgie, who also consented to lie his. There now mnainod but one other step to lie taken. He crossed the room and asked the yousgest Miasllrown rig to dance. He was getting rather mix ed, up by this tinie, ar.d was on the point of asking bur to marry him instead, so customary bad the question grown to him now. Misa Lilly, however, declined to dance, on tbe plea that ahe was tired, and conld exert herself no more that night. With qnestionable taste he nrged the mat ter, add tagged her to give him one, just one. At this she told him frankly that she did not adru.'re his style of dancing, which of conrse ended the conversation. So he ahked her to come for a stroll in stead ; and having arrived at tho momen tous ajxit, delivered himself of the ornate speccii that had already done duty throe times that night I forgi-t what it was, but I know it wouud np with the declara tion that be adored her and wanted, to arry her. ; It's extremely good of you, I'm sure, aaid the youngest Muta ltrownrig, calmly. Rut, uncivil a I fear it must sound, I do not want to marry you. Don't you, by Jove t aaid Huooki, has tily. Well, that's awfully ki No, no ! pulling himself np with start ; I don't mean that, you know ; I mean that it is awfully horrid, you know.

So you ae yen were wrong ! I slwaya knew she was one of the uio-t intelligent girl I ever met, Mr. Wilding repeated, in a tone so difficult that li is com pm ion for ouco had sense to refrain from demanding au explanation, Tlie next nioming, rut Kate Ilrownrig turned the angle of the hall tbat'Jed to her fathers sanctum hither a sense of filial dnty beckoned her) f he. almoKt run into the anna of her three siKlors, all converg ing toward the siiino cjmt from dilTerent directions. Siiuultaneouhlv they entered Mr. llrownrig's study. (He .called it a li brary ; hut that word is too often profaned for me to profane it, so I shall draw the line kt study). Hut to return, Miss Lily lieing the youngest, w as of oonrso tho firt to raise her voice. I had a proposal last night, papa, and I have come to tell yon about it, said be, in a tone replete with triumph. It ia so sweet to the mind of youth to outdo its e'durs. Hut "oii.thi occasion only" the ciders refused to le outdone. They each and all betrayed a smile of in ward satisfaction, and then they gave way to speech. 1 No 1 they said in a breath. They did not moan to doubt or 1o impolite ; they only meant surprise. Tbe curate, said Hetty in a composed but plainly contemptuous whiKper. It was a stage w hinpi r. Old Major Sterne, said Mins (leorgie promptly. Perhaps Henry Simms, suggested Katie, with some sympathy. Then turning to her father she said, w ith a conspicuous blush. It's very strange, papa, but I too had a proposal last night. And so hal I I exclaimed (leorgie nnd Hetty in a breath. F.h? said papa, pushing up his rtpucU cles. Ho was fat and pudgy, with Handy hair and a flabby nose. He w as a powerful 111H11, too, aud one unpleasant to coma to opeu . quarrel with. Proposals in the Brownrig family were few and furbetwocn in fact, curiosities and so much luck as the girls described falling into one day overpowered him. ' One at a time ; my breath is not what it used to be, he said Addressing Katie. (If he had said breadth, it would have been equally true, as his mother if she was to bo lielieved always declared he way a lean baby.) May I ask the name of your lover? Mr. Snooks, she said with downcast eyes and a timid smile. She took lip the cor ner of a cherry colored bow that adorned her gown, and fell to admiring it, through what she fondly thought was bashfulnoss. Impossible! exclaimed fleorgie, angrily. AVhat a disgmoeful untruth I cried Het ty, rndely. Mr. Snooks proposed to me, last night, and I accepted him. What is it yon soy? Ob, I am going out of my mind ; my senses are deserting me, said (leorgie, putting her hands to her head with a dramatic gesture. Oris it a dream that hits asked me to marry him, and that I too said "ves." I seldom visit the cloud.i, said Lily, with a bitter laugh. And I certainly know that he made me a noble oiler of his hand and heart; both which treasures I de clined. Where? demanded the other tliieo, as though with one month. In the laurel avenue At this they all groaned aloud, "l'erfidious monster !" said Hetty from her heart. Am I to uiideihtu:id, lieguu Mr. Ilrown rig, with suppressed but evident fury, that this this unmitigated scoundrel asked you all to many him hint night? If we speak the truth, yes, replied the girls dismally . Ileviun drunk, said papa savagely. I can't believe it, taid Katie, w ho was dissolved in tears in fact, "liko Niolje,. was all tears" by this time. Nothing could lie nicer than the way he did it. Hi language was perfect, and so thoroughly from the heart. He addressed mo in a most honorable, upright and Christian fashion, said Hetty. ; I am sure he meant everything he said. 1 certainly considered his manner strange, not a bit like what one reads, said (leorgie honestly, but I thought of the title an.l the projx rty, and J said yes di rectly. I thongbt him tho very greatest nmfT 1 ever spoke to, broke in Mis Lily with de cision. I refused him without a moment's hesitation, and told him to gn home. I'm sure it's well I did. I dsn-say if he had stayed here nmeh longer he would have proposed to mamma next, and afterward to the upper housemaid. I agree w ith you papa, the champagne s too much for bun. j I I think he is fond of me, mid Katie, j in a low and trembling lone.

It is not olti n that k man with bis ooat split in the back, a piece of hi car gone, 0110 eye all bunged up, and Lia mouth sticking out like a cost on" boot, comes in to a photographic arena and asks to have his picture taken just as he is ; but that's what happened yuxtcrday in Cialvoston. The photographer started a little, and finally asked : Hadn't you lstter adjourn this mis ting over until after you come out of the hospi tal ? The battered man fondled a bump on the side of his head, and replied, I don't need any depnty, 1 aru running this Biacbiun myself. Just you take tile pictures and I'll bear all llio campaign ex' penses. I witnt two picture- one, full face, showing tho wrecked month nnd the eye the scoundrel telescoped with hi tliuiii, aud a side view, showing the site my ear nsed to occupy. If you are afraid I won't pay, just sing nut, and I'll file an indemnity bond. All right, said tbe artist, kit down on that throne. Tho mutilated man sat down and assumed such k sad expression of couiitenence that the room grew dark with gloom. After the operation was over, the suflerer paid the bill, and wanted to know lieu tho artist was going to touch them up, as hu wanted to lie present. He ex plained. I want plenty of gore paint ou the site of the ear. Just slash it on without regard to expense. I'll pay for thu extra goru. I want it to look ghastly, I want it fix ml up so it will remind Hancock of Gettys burg. What's Hancock got to do with iL, He has everything to do with it, but I am the next postmaster of Galveston, pro vided Hancock dou't want me in his cab inet. You sue I've mode personal sacrifi ces. I Lave suffered on his account, I got all tlttauiU'edentittls cheering for Han cock in a nigger birrminTniTTTinTlnlTr'itiill avenue. I am going to tend the pictures on with this bunch of hair and this piece of e&r, wrapped up in a newspaper. You will have aomo pretty strong claims on hint remarked tho photographer. "If alutui if you need a chief clerk in tho post office, I bops you will ruinembur your friends," and thu artist clasped the baud of the patriot "All right, bnt lutiui is the word. Don't lie mean and stingy in putting plenty of gore on the site of the missing ear." "I won't; you may rely on mu." "And keep quiet, for if tho other ;)2H applicant see into my hand, they will run in a cold duck on inn." Tbe aitiht winked, and wrapping up his credentials, the man who hail made per sonal sacrifices went out into the afreet in search of a drug store. IM t-K KSK.K'S Wlllinll, The conscrvulism of most people, is nothing more than their radicalism gone to seed. No man is envious of w hat he can eq.ial, or even imitate. The man w ho U ready to take the chances will probably take bis last one in thn almshouse. Men have been known to correct their vanity, snbdtio their pride, And eveu over come their snpomtiUous, but once impreg nated with it, it i impossible fur a man to get rid of his vulgarity. The man who lives for other miml ex pect most of his pay in self sutisfw turn. Most successes spring up, I'ho'nix like, from the ashes of some failure. l'he most cunning of all egotists is the man who never speak of himself, Good breeding is a h tier of credit all over the world. A man of truu genius is generally aa simple as a child, and as uncotiseious of his power as kn elephant. If we would measure our happiness by the condition of those U low us, instead of those kljove, we should find f urwiviia very well-off.
