lUyoud all ijucstion tho llrownriga' 111
wiu a decided Huocesn. 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

Wilding, desperately, eau't you do aotne
tbtog? I -I don't know how t happened.
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. Ia fact, warm
ing to his work through aheer gratitude,
yon have made ate miserable forever ; you
have Im keri my heart.

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. Her

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.

entertained herself with reading or
