How I Lost Eosanna.
I am a post office clerk, and my name
is Mowden. I bad occupied my present
position about a year when X became
acquainted with my ever-dear Rosanna.
It liappeued in this wise I mention
the particulars at the risk of being
thought egotistical, because she was the
first youthful member of her sex with
whom I bad ever become aequain't-d,
and also because it is so pleasant to re
call even the most trival events con
nected with one so very dear to me.
My mother, who is a notable hou-e
wife, had been In the habit of pnrchas
i or eggs of a neighbor, a couple of blocks
away. I have bestltated about men
tioning the name of this person, fearine
that it might, in some way, seem to
reflect upon my dearest Itoeenna ; but
then, truth is truth and candor is ean
inr, and if anybody would think less of
Uosanna because of her Hibernian ap
pellation, his good opinion is not worth
courting. The uame Is Flaherty. As a
matter of coarse, I went frequently to
Mrs. Flatbery's In my mother's service,
and in time we became tolerably well
acquainted. I was somewhat afraid of
her ; she was a big woman, with a gren
adier way about her that was calculated
to startle one of my nervous tempera
ment. Sbe had small red eyes perhaps
I should say eyelids and big, red arms;
and her voice ! her voice was terrible.
Her family consisted of a horde of
dirty children, principally boys, whose
ages ranged from fifteen to four; at
about that time, I presume, Mr. Flah
erty mercifully died ; at auy rate, be
was dead.
My Rosanna was the eldest, and aired
seventeen; but at the time of which I
am speaking, I did not know this, and
indeed was not aware of her existence.
She afterward tried to make me believe
that she was then at school, but, from
the manifest defec'.s In ber education, I
am inclined to believe that she was
nerving as nurse-Rirl in some family.
One cold, dismal, rainy, blowy morning,
my mother saiil, as she rapped at my
door :
"Come, Jimmy dear, get np ! I want
you to step over to Mrs. Flaherty's and
set me as many eggs as she can spare."
I got np immediately ; I did not want
to, but I did; and, donning my over
cat, took an umbrella in one band, and
a basket in the other, aud started on
my errand.
"Hurry up," said mother; "I want to
cook some for breakfast."
It was a kind of morning on which
one would be likely to hurry up. I was
thoroughly wretched by the time I
reached lire. Flaherty's. I gave a
pretty sharp rap at the door, expecting
to see one of the dirty, fehojk-beaded
children, or my grenadier friend ; but
there was a little rustle, and the door
was opened by shall I say an angel ?
No, I will not soar; it was Rosanna.

stood looking at her, unable to articu-
late a syllable ; she said "Come in !" iu
a voice of silvery sweetness, as unlike
Jlrs. Flaherty's as possible. I went In ;
more because of the rain than of any
thing else ; a sort of instinctive self
preservation. Mrs. Flaherty eame up,
aud said she supposed eggs ; I nodded
assent. She inquired, bow mother Was,
and I said : "A couple of dozen It
didn't matter." I never was so ecstat
ically wretched iu mv life.
I reached home somehow; I got down
to the office somehow; I attended to

and made speeches to ber that would
have caused my genuine Rosanna, how-
ever devoted, lo cashier me in about i mlgbt venture to hope to see her daugh

I do maintain that it is tbe sweetest

After residing in the seventh heave.i

tliat I bad a rival. It was ou tbe third
of February ; I remember tbe day well.
It had been a balm v. heavenlv dar.

But let me not linger over ti.e-e sad
davs and hasten in i iimo. ,.!
drixziy morning in early March one of :
my leiiow-elarks Informed me that
there was a lady In the corridor who
who desired to see me. I blushed furi
ously (affording my fellow-clerks a
deal of innoeent amusement thereby),
and, at first, expressed some doubts as
to myJnformanl's veracity. He shrugged
his shoulders, and said I could do as I
pleased, bat I be lady was there waiting.
"And," added the malicious scamp,
one a carrying a present for yi.u in her i
arras, anu looks as tr you ha. I In tu r not
keep l,er waiting loo lotitr. 1 v-t'ie-hy,"
he called after me, as I went"vit, 'vlie
told me to tell you that her luiuo was
Flaherty ; I forgot that."
More innocent amusement aradng ti e
clerks!
'When J reached the oorridor alwavs
fall of people at that lime of the day,
and a crowded as uwual I e?pted my
grenadier frtend lolling Against one of
the windows, with an expression on her
engaging countenance from which I
shrank back aghast; only that she was
Rosahna's mother, I would "have turned
and fled. She bore In her arms a huge,
kicking, crowing, sprawling Shanghai
rooster ; and, as she advanced upou me
with the loud confidence characteristic
of ber, I prayed for aii earthquake, or
some other convulsiuuii of future, iu
the midst of which I might escape. H it
the fates ordered otherwise.
"Ocb, Mlstber Plowden, and It's glad
I am to see thought of ycr!" exclaimed
Mrs. Flaherty, In that Urrible voice,
which at once attracted everybody's at
tention, and caused my heart to sink
into my boot and the blood to rtieh to
my face. "Ye haven't been a ctllin' on
us lately," she continued ; "me Hosnna

United States, and oouirs back with all the
modern methods, instruments and appliances

and manikins io Illustrate his leetnraa.
DR. PAUL It. BR UN AN has been Ll years
lecturing on tne laws ox un anu lies I 111. jn
bis private and Dubiio lectures he has tancht
men and women tbe true system of life, how
to be bealtby and happy. If they would only be
guided by his wise counsel. Bat all cannot hear
nis uetlgntlul ana instructive lectures, nor can
he tell evenrthlnr necessary for suffering hu
manity to know from the public rostrum be

much to be learned from bins, aa his experi

learning tne tieiicate diseases which the nu
mau family are prone to, their mode ol treat

not oary treated these diseases ni" ! success
fully, but has made them a life study, as a Ivw

He has become an expert In the treatment of
disease, weakness and derangement of the re

Thnt persons who are unfortunate enoush lo
be atlileled by any form ol sexual disease have
a delicacy In calling upon the proper phvi

sometimes front Ignorance, and permit those
diseases to exist until their constitutions be
come corrupted, their organisation broken
down, and tbe hope of future happiness blight
ed, until death becomes a welcome messenger
to carry them oat or their miserable existence.
Those T ho call in time upon Dlt. PAUL M.
