She Ivuk care.however,togo through this graceful
gv nmastic ihreet iv in front of a long mirror; ror
Kitty knew that she wait pretty, and ha 1 known
it >inr? she was three years old, and never hesi
tated to indulge W-r taste lor pretty things by
looking at her own image whenever "opportunity
?f?er? 'I tor doing so. At the present moment
howt ver. she seemed to derive but little conso
lation froui the reflection of her small, well-ma le
figure, attired, as it always was. in the trimmest
and daintiest ?f costume**, or from the well-set
head, ?.n which nature had conferred "a turn"
so irresi?tiMy attractive ami coquettish that no
amount of Parisian coX-ng could unproveit;for
-fter a few minutes' silent contemplation she
shook her small hst and made a hideous grimace
at her ow n image in the glass, a* if it alone were
r? sponsible lor her present weariness and per
plexity. Then she threw h rself on the rug at
Aunt Rachel's feet, and exclaimed, for the
second time, "It it a dull world, isn't it. aunty?
Nay it i*. J'lease, lor I cant bear any contradic
tion to-m^ht."
Aunt Rachel smiled, and stroked caressingly
the bright head which tu nestled so closotv in
her lap for she was always lenkut toward Kitty's
I'ettish ways, and never Interpreted them to
mean anything very serious or important. "Very
wed. then, Kitty, it ?'? dull, my dear," she sai t:
? but why particularly to-night of all nights in
Ike ?t ar I'
???Hi. I dm't know, aunty. One never seems
to get wli?. one wants most. I'm sure / don't.
Tb? re are only two things now that I caa think
of," addct. Kitty, in a meditative tone, "that I
really < are about; and 1 never get much of
either."
?? And those are?" said Aunt Rachel, inqulr
iaglv.
Ice cream and dancing, aunty."
Aunt Rachel laughed. '? We will try to supply
tbo-v indsqiensable to happiness, Kitty," she
said; "but omy upon condition of your being a
hitter child than you have been latelv. dcur.
llow al-out Roy Campbell ? Are you going to
throw away his strong, true love, as you have
east aside so many others, Kitty ?"
?? < ?h.you cross old aunty!" cried Kitty, lifting
hrr he a 1 d tiantly?'to worry me about'love and
marriage j-ist a* 1 wasre covering my serenity in
your dear old lap. I'm sure 1 'm very well as J
am, and tou wouldn't t>e half as well off without
me, i-roiokiiig a* i am."
?? Hut I shall not be here always, Catherine,"
was her aunt's grave reply.
" Now, Aunt Raihel, don't be a wet blanket,"
said Kitty, throwing heT arms round ber aunt's
nick, and drawing the placid face down to be
kiss, d, " and I'll talk about Roy just as much as
you 1 ke. I know he's a splendid match; and,
as old Keziah says, 'his wife is certain to be
happy, he'd make such a good provider.' But
then, you know, Aunt Rachel, if I marry Roy i
mustn't darce, and I mustn t flirt, and I mustn't
Lave a got* time at all. What's the use of liv
ing ii you ctn't have a good time ? It really is
verj prosy of Roy," she continued, as her aunt
made i4> reply to this flippant speech, " to be so
exacting about little things. He knows that I
iove him, or be ought to know it, and yet he
ki eps tormenting me about my coquetry and
a.y insane Cesire to please; a? If women weren't
put into the world to please the men and humor
their caprices. At least I'ee never been able to
find out that they had any higher mL*?ion. Girls
kkiuor tbeii lovers, wives their husbands, and
nothtr* their sins. From the cradle to the
grave it's always the same thing over and over
again.'*
"Well, Kitty, replied Anut Rachel, when
Kitty paustd a moment to take breath, "we
won t d:scus* that subject now. I have only a
tew woril? to say to you, a?y child, which are,
tl.a; you ha?e won the heart of a man to whose
ore and liotor I would gladly intrust you. But,
Kitty, he is not one with whose best affections
yon can play fast and loose, as you have done
w th the butterflies ot fashion who have been
fluttering round yon here. It must be all or
nothing with Roy Campbell, child, and It is for
you to -ay which it shall he."
" Well, aunty. I'll trv and get off with just as
little as I can, then," replied Kitty, jumping up
and dancing about the room, "because yeu know
I must keep soms for jon." #
A nil she threw her arms reran 1 her annt'i neck.
juid kissed her audibly and emphatically at least
half a dozei times.
But Aunt Rackel hail made np her mind that
Kitty fought to be talked to," and when that
teucrable spinster's mind was once firmly and
fairly n ade up. It took more than even Kitty's
coaxing ways to undo the little parcel.
"?'ne word more, darling," sue said, a? Kitty
finally released her lrom her explosive embrace,
and turned round to leave the room. "You'll
5ive up that party to-morrow night, won't you,
ear? Remember, it'? Thanksgiving day, and
such a thing was never heard ot as going from
home on TLanksgiving-day,Kitty. 1 can't think
w hate ver put it into vour head to want to go."
" Why. aunty." repliwd Kitty, sinking down
again at her aunt's feet, with har eyebrows more
I uckered than ever.and a tfark cloud of discoti
t? nt settling iown upon her features, - It Will be
the very last rhanee I ?hall hare of a dance this

Thanksgiving day, which wv destined to be
the turning point In Kitty Somcm' life.
II.
The morning of the great Puritan festival
dawned with that aott mist over the landscape
which belongs to Indian summer in all part* of
America, bat which In Newport mingles with the
M-a-fog. ami produce* a luminous haze through
whu h all objects take a golden tinge.
Kitty was up ai.<l In the kitchen at what she
railed the "screech of dawn." assisting old Ke
riah in h*r preparations for the pomlerous feast;
lor there was not only the family dinner to pre
pare that day. hut arrangements to he made to
supply twenty-tour ol M is* Rachel's pensioners
with a turkey, a torm of cranberry .felly, and a
pi;mi kin pie each. These Kitty never failed to
put up and distribute with her own hands, ac
companying each gift with some kind inquiry or
nurry icst. which added tenfold to its value.
I hen, ber morning duties ended. Kitty walked
dtmurely at Aunt Rachel's side to the place of
vtorfliip. having first donned her most l?ewitch
ing ??toilette," wherewith to distract the m.nds
ami ensnare the hearts of all the youthful mem
bers ol' the congregation,both male an.l ft stale.
Morning service over, no time ?ut? Ik lost in
arranging the abundant and luxurious rep ist
upon which Kexiah bad expended her brst skill,
lor the distant branches of the Homers family
who were summoned to the Thanksgiving feast
lived at Sarraganset. and weie obliged to take
the afternoe>n boat on their return.
All day Kitty was hi her brightest and most
sparkling mood, and as Roy Campbell?who h ?d
been admitted to the family gathering?wat. li d
h< r litlie figure littinc from T'acle Ztke to Aunt
Charity, and listened to the merry ring of her
voice an >be laughed and coquetted with the
youngtr Pomeroys. he wa? more than ever im
pressed with the versatility of her rare gifts, and
the imj>ossil>ility of ever concentrating them
upon one object'in life. At last, however, the
testi \ ities of the day were over. Kvery one de
clared that It had l>eeu the most delightful and
wonderful Thanksgiving they had ever kuown,
and 'Biah and 'Kiah openly expressed the hope
that they might ??mis* the boat, and have to
stay all "night"?an observation which caused
Kitty to flit silently out of the room and put the
hall clock thirty minutes forward.
Then she and Roy accompanied1 the family
party to the end of tne long pier, and after de
positing the elders in sheltered and comfortable
seats, waved a not very melancholy adieu to
them from the shore. "Thank goodness, that's
over!" exclaimed Kitty, as the boat pushed off
Into the blue waters or the bay. "I've been so
good to-day that 1 am sure that I deserve some
reward."

It lias long been known to surgeons that when
a limb has been cut oil the snfttrer <loes not lot*
the consciousness of its existence. This has been
round to l>e true in nearly every such case. Only
abcurt Ave per cent, of the men who have su?
fered amputation never have any feeling of the
part as being still present. Of the rest, there are
a lew who in time, come to forget the missing
member, while the remainder seem to retain a

every prospect of a happy result. Of a sudden,
however, an event came to pass which put mar
riage out ol the question. So what did this
young gentleman?(we mean this middle-tiijed
gentleman, who was, at the time indicate*: a
young gentleman'?what did this infatuated
young gentleman do? This Is what be did. He
went aid purchased him two horse-yistols; he
dressed hi mseli in his handsomest suit of clothes
and he called at the farm-house which sintered
tfee object of his heart's desire. It was a woon
litsummer night. So what did tbi* infatuated

Tbey sat dow n uj^n a log, and this young gen
tit man very plainly told this young lady that
thtv cop Id never be man and wife, and all tbe

d. ar K.irl as she was. 1? gan to cry; whereupon
onr hero produced his two hora-jistols, loaded
down to the muzzle with buckshot. "Susan"

voice and a terrible earnestness in'his eve?
Susan, says he. Susan looked up frightened
to behuTd the murderous weapons gl< aming in
the mooniiabt. "What are yon going to Jo?"
savs she. '*1 am going to get over this In thirty
minntei, he says sterulv, Uking out his Watch,
and you shall do tbe same thing, or I'll kill
von first: and th.n kill myself. I niean it,
Susa?. Don't doubt it." She did not. She sat
ard mused, and he sat and meditated
and time ran along with the moonbeam*
that tratted around the watch-dial, At the
end of atmtnutes he said: "Times up. I believe
that! had rather live without yoa. Susan, than

another gentleman inside a Tear. Our hero is

BR IDEM AII*' DRESSES.
White tulle dresses over w hite silk are most
often worn by bridt maids. They are a>loriied
by flowers arranged in an informal manner,
w ithout any regular design. The verv prettiest ;
of t he season liad the tunic sprinkled all over
w ith rose petals that looked as if scattered there
by a snower. Oaer-dressta of China crane
htasllv fringed are also worn by bridemaids.
These are nsuallv white, but at a large wed
ding, recently, they were of sky blue and pale
row-color, to suit both blonde and brunette at
tendants. The corsage of these dresses is usu
ally made low.

The bridegroom wears the full dress suit of
black. A wdilte necktie is dr ru/utur. The
gioe rcsmen and ushers are also in full dress,
though at a late very fashionable marriage they
wore the English costume of blue frock coat
w ith lavender pantaloons.
WKnillBO CARDS.
Wednesday is the day, and # p. m. the hour,
selected for fashionable weddings. Note sheets
are not used for invitations this year; long, nar
row cards, In the style of twenty years ago, are
taking the place ot square cards, and it is said
that gWed cards are to ?ui>ersede those of plain
Bristol board. Three or tour cards appear in
the envelope. For church weddings the largest
caril contains the invitation to the church in
worn* simple formula, such as
CHFBCH or THE r?CARKATjO*.
Fifth Ar'Hve ami Thirty-fifth Strut,
December 23, at 8 p. m.
The next largest card has the bride's name
and the smallest that of the groom. For verv |
large weddings a fourth card is added, with ,
"Admit to Church," engraved thereon. For
hoote weddings the flrst eard bears the invlta- I
tion for the bride's parents, with the number of
residence and date of wed?Hng. A trimllar invi- ?
tation accompanies cards for the ehurcli when a (
reception is held at the house. Monograms are
now used only on envelopes for church weddings, j
and these invitations are furnished bv the i
groom. Envelopes of cards to home weddings
are embellished with the silver initial of the j
bride's parents, and are supplied by her lather.
DRESSES or THB TROCSPEaU.
Gray is no longer in favor for the traveling ?
and street attire of biIdes, as it publishes their I
t-ridehood as plainU as orange flowers do. The 1
stylish olive, either brown or green, or the dark
nut brown $aahiaeree are chosen as polonaises 1
over silk skirt* tor traveling, or el* a camel's
hair over-skirt and double cape are worn over a '
silk skirt, or perhaps a cloth suit tTimmed with i
thick passementerie cords. The hat is a toque ,
of velvet ot the same color er black. The visit
ing and church suit la partly of faille, partly of I
velvet, of plum color, mignonette .London smoke, |
or anv of the stylhh dark shades, and quite often
black*. The bonnet i> of corres|K>udmg color.
A white bonnet is aow rarely seen. Evening
bonnets are of light rose. blue, or flesh-eoloreu
velvet. A black silk suit and a deml-tralned
dress ol black silk are still esseutial to a com
plete and stvlish trousseau, and are decidedly
the most useful dresses when the number is lim
ited. The handsomest morning dresaew are of
ashe*-of-roses. or else violet cashm<?re. with ?

The Mail t Fi rmer unswers the question as to ;
what is a "thoroughbred" as follows:?1"Strictly
speak i rig. a thorough bred horse isone whose ped- I
'gree, lineally and collaterally, caa be trae^d to I
an appioved oriental source, the fountain-head I
of the beat blood of England. The thoToogh
bred,horse of Ajuctita la <*"? only family of ,
the horse on this continent of pure find nn- !
mixed blood. Ami Herbert say* this pretdn*
eion ?v?n ca:mot be made out to satisfaction
in all eases, even where the Americau thor
oughbred can trace directly in both lines to im
ported Krglish thoroughbred sire and dam, be
cause many of the most distinguished English
race iierses canndt establish an unquestioned
tlescent on both sides from royal (Oriental, t. e.,
Arabians or Barbs)?4re and royal dam, which Ls,
technically speaking, requisite to constitute a
pertevt thoroughbred. But latterly, it has been
deemed sufficient lor a '-thoroughbred," if his
pedigree.- can be traced for eight generations
without any admixture. In England no horse ls
considered" thoroughbred whose pedigree is not
on record in the "stud book," which kaa been
kept up from the time King Charles II, (1*300-.
J6M) *ent abroad the "Master ofthe Horse"to
procure oriental mares fcr btfedlsg fnrposes.
From want of such a record in this country,
Amtduan horses are considered thoroughbred
If the sire be known to be ao, and if the dam can
be traoed without a stain to some mare of the
fifth remove reputed to be thoroughbred.

which originate in wni'1 alarmist having dis

Tlds building has atfbrded a frvqnent theme
for paragraphs, and many Interesting stories
concerning it have been put into circulation.
It ha* been said that the house was sold at a
reduced price because of the horror connected
wttl. the tragedy which occurred within its vails.
Another statement Inihrjns the public that it
has been rented by a noted game-ter for a faro

is the taint connected with it that no tenant
will take it at any price. The stories are all
equally talse. The lack- are these: The family

dreadful affair which lias give* them such pain

tbe furnitnre. which still remains in its former

hired a very stylish mansion In Fifth avenue
for which they pav about $10,000 per an
num. this rent including that of furniture.
The Nathan mansion has Ixjen correctly de
scribed as being of eiegaut finish, and was built
uutkr the inspection of its late owner. He took
Treat delight in this mansion, and, having made
his property by assidttou* attention to business,
he w as the better prepared t? enjoy it. He fre
quently mentioned to an acquaintance of mine
that lie could get *22.1,000 for the proj?erty. This

as Impenetrable as ever; hnt I have been told by
a person who lives near by that many if not
most of the neighbors discard the sneak-thief
theory, and insist that the crime was committed
by one of the inhabitants vt the building. This
opinion, if pressed to an extreme point, would

Tub Man Eatkiis of the Fiji Islaxos
Noticing the departure from San Francisco for
Levuktt ot a brig of one hundred tons burden,
owned by H. S. Fuller, her captain, and S. A. St.
? lobn, two veteran res'dents of the Fiji Islands,
the A ita says; "Their present Chief of the islands
wu formerly a cannibal. When converted he
bad ll.ooo followers. The humau-tiesb-eating |
chiefs are known as "Butchers." Cannibalism
still exists to an alarming extent throughout the
interior of Vitelene, an Island 90 by flo miles Is
extent. Annual feasts are given to "such Chiefs '
as have slain foes in battle and performed deeds
of daring. At these disgusting carnivals the
bodks of native boys of twelve to fourteen years
of age only are eaten. From earliest childhood ,
these subjects are fattened for the fcaet. They ,
are fed wiloUy upon fruits and vegetables. When .
tin? day ol slaughter rolls round, two fn>nt teeth
are extracted from the mouth of the child.
These are inserted in a club, with which weapon j
(he murder Is committed, the teeth being driven ,
deep into the skull of the helpless victim. The \
l*>dy is then dissected, eutrails, &c., removed,
and afterward cut into suitably-sized steaks.
These are rolled in bread-fruit leaves, placed in
holes in the earth and baked for the feast. The
native boy flesh fc> for the palates of the chiefs
only. That of the white man is considered too
salty and smoky, and is not regarded a* tooth
some. Capt- Fuller Informs us that there are
over 100,000 cannibals on the island, and only
last August twe Scotchmen were captured and ,
eaten by the natives. There is a project or
this w orse than heathenish custom Deing abol
ished in time, now that the entering wedge of >
civilization is forcing the barbarians to respect
the white settlements."

chievous mistake for persons, old or young? I
especially children and feeble or se<U>ntary I

the young man did not appear. Finally a com- .
mittee was sent In search of liim, and after a
considerable absence they returned evidently j

they jfhve was as follows: It api>ears that the
clerk is a member of the Jewish persuasion, and i
his Intended bride a Christian. It was his inten

own creed by marrying her; but as the moment ,
advanced for the ceremony he became more |
