A MTTI.F. FOOI
Florence Keed was the little
and Julia Willis, her cousin, it
fool,
was
who called her so. You can judge
between them if you like : it is a story
that will not take lonp; in the telling.
Florence or Florry, for nobody
ever dreamed of calling her anything
else Florry Head was not in the
least what one would call a beauty;
but then she had the softest eyes aud
the sweetest lips in the world. Some
thing at least to that effect Charley
Iennis Lad been heard to declare,
and it is very much to be believed
that he Fpokc as one who should
know on this subject.
The two had been lovers for quite a
while; lovers in tho bud, as one may
say, aud everybody knows tb.U the
bud is the sweetest part of the whole
blossom seasun. The practical, common-place
staure'of 'declaration had
j not yet been reached ; it was the time
ot broken hints and secret nana pres
sures, of stolen kisses and general
felicity. Florry walked on air, and
forgot that it was not her native ele
ment, tiil one unlucky day the clouds
melted under her feet, and 1ft her
down to earth again with a rude
thump.
It was the day of a celebration
given in Ulackville to commemorate
some event perfectly uninteresting to
the world at large, but of the very
last importance in the eyes of the
IJIackviliiaus. For, though Ulack
vilie was a little place, its inhabitants
were men and women very much like
other people, and measured the uni
verse on the Elackville yard stick
after the orthodox and proper fash
ion. The festivity, beginning with an
oration, ended with a Die nic in a
grove just outside the town, a mag-
'nificcut maple grove, whose violet-
! scented solitude it was almost a sin
:to iirot'aiie with the clattering of
hardware and the popping of ginger
beer eoiks. Charley Dennis and
Florrv were there together, as ihev
were together every w here. I'ut un
Lyitunately for Florrv, Miss Adela
15reut was there also.
This voung lady was not lluck-
vilieboru. hhecame from a much
argertowu, a town which would
have turned up Us nose very high
iudced at poor little IMaekville, had
j it happened to be aware of its cxis-
.. .. , ,
tellce at all. 1' or WhlCU reason the
niackVlUiaUS naturally looked With
admiring awe upon it and all that
i m:.j .1. 1., . i
pertained to u. Mi.s Adela, then,
being a visitor just arrrived among
. , , , -
thelll, her tli but was an event Second
ioiily to the great event commemorat-
, td b" the daV. She Was not prettier
.
than half their own girls there j.res
ent, b .t she was wholy unlike them
iu dress and style; in a ord, fehe
was something new ; and if novelty
is one of the greatest of all charms
anywhere, it certainly is not the least
so in a small country town where a
wholesome fear of his neighbor Lolds
each in decent restraint. So all eyes
vcre fastened on the stranger, when,
at a rather late hour, she made Ler
appearance on the ground, which in
nowise discomposed her. She settled
herself aud Ler flounces, gave a final
toss to the fiizzy wilderness sur
mounting her little Lead, and, turn
ing back Ler fan-parasol, looked
around her with much the air with
j which a traveler, siianded among
; savages, might observe their barbar
j ous customs.
i The tirt of the natives on whom
her glauces chanced to rest, were

safed them a prolonged examination,
under which Florry's eyes fell and
her color rose; whereupon Adela,
who had already mentally inventori
ed her as pretty, but deplorably with
out style, regarded her anew, with
amused compassion, as a girl who
could actuallv lihi.-h for being looked
at!
Charley did not blush, thou. h.
On the contrary, he returned the
gaze with one that might Lave abash
ed souio girls. Hut Miss Hrcnt was
a young lady not easily abashed, and
if the very evideut admiration in the
handsome savage black eyes afTectetl
her in any way, it was certainly
neither to embarrass nor onend her.
That vas plain, from the manner in
which she received his advances
! later ; else the two would uot have
made so rapid an acquaintance, nor
havo been missing when, bv-and-bv,
a strol through the grove was pro
nosed, so that Florry was obliged to
put up with the escort ot Ler cousin
Fred Willis, a necessity considerably
more agreeable to him than to her.
Oli, what a cloudy ending for a
day that Lad begun all sunsbine!
Florry wondered piteously, when,
the festival at an end, they drove

Charley quite away from Lis moor-

round her little finper; in another, he
had bo completely deserted ' the soft-
est eyes and sweetest lip?," as if that

empty air.
If Florence had been a heroine,
she would probably have broken her
heart; have taken to writing poetry
and reducing her weight at the rate
of a pound a day. Hut then she was
not a bit of a heroine; an army of
little brothers an. sisters to attend
to loft her no time for poetry-writing,
while lilackville, although as before
stated, an insignificant place, had a
bracing mountain air which forced
people to eat in spite of themselves.
So Florry, occupied with small frocks
and stocking-, did not lose her pretty
color or roundness, and il there was
sometimes tears in the "softest eyes,"
and sighs on the "sweete.-t lips,"
why, that is only what is happening
every dov to eyes and lips that are
neither soft nor sweet.
No, Florry had no notion of sitting
for a picture" of despair. She had a
stout little heart of her own, as brave
as it was warm, and whatever the
trial, she "grinned and bore it,"
inetanhoricallv speaking. Nature,
in bestowing on her a pair of dimples,
having put the grin sardonic out of
her power. It was very hard, very
provoking, very cruel of Charley,
no doubt, but still it was Charley,
and she was not going t make an
outcry against him. 1 hat was Hur
ry's way of looking ai It; mere u.e

Fred was describing a party of the
previous evening, at which neither of
the girls had been present.
"I suppose Ihot Miss Hrcnt was
there as large as life?" said Julia,
w hose habit it was to use the pronoun
of censure in referring to Adela.
"Yes, she was there," answered
Fred, and laughed to himself fur a
moment Then aloud, "The fool

Hut the moment Fred was gone,
she indemnified herself for this loreed
clemency. She pounced down on
Florry, and never left her till she had
worried her into tears and confession.
Then she paused, half in triumph,
half in pity.
"Now, don't be a goose, ! lorry,
she said, soothingly, tapping the bit
of flushed cheek not hidden in the
elasned hands, "if there ever was a
mau worth crying about, I'm sure it
isn't CLarley Dennis."
Florry made no reply to this, but
she lifted her bend and set some
stitches rather blindly in the embroi
dered frock on her lap. Hut it is
lucky that Master Harry, for whom
it was destined, was not a connois

abruptly, looking out of the window,

Charley it really was at the gate,
and at tile gate "we will be' polite

in th5 nick of time.
It is a very common rural custom
"to improve the shining hours" of the
full moon, not, indeed, as "doth the
little busy bee," but after a fashion
quite as agreeable, if less industrious.
Each Jack with Lis chosen Jill beside

roads at a pace to be settled by his
own taste and the power of Lis horse.
Now, the Hlackvillo moon being just
at nrt.cnt at the full, a jolifieation of
this sort Lad been arranged for the
morrow evening, and Charley a;coid-.
ingly took an early opportunity to
make sure of Miss Adela Hrent.
Hut, if tho truth must be told,
Miss .dela wos growing rather tired
of this rustic homage Add to which,
that Ler own particular "young man"
kad jvtst came frorn lown a ace Ler,
and it will easily be perceived that
Charley's ckanciys were not bo good
as ho fondly imagined. The pair
stood in tho porch, watching him as
he ' approached, and indulging in

"Oh ! it is us Father Noah intends
, huiiorino; with a vi'it," remarked Mr.
alter lliiiinton, when Lharley'a
"ark," as the other had irreverently
dubbed his carriage, drew up before
the gate. "Am I to leave you to a
IrU-i-M,; Adela?"
"Oh, for mercy sake no !" answered
Adela, "or he is such a bore" (poor
Charley!) "ho would stay forever!"
So Charley waited in vain for Mr
Wilmington to go and give him a
chance to make known his errand.
At last, it became evident that he did
not intend going, and Charley could
in decency wait no longer, he opened
the subject with an introductory" re
mark on the fineness of the weather.
"(iood weather fur green things,"
nonchalantly observed Mr. Wilming
ton, with a glance that Charley easi
ly understood.
" Especially the carrot crop," return
ed Charley, with an equally intelligi
ble look at his new acquaintance's
petfumed luxurient locks, which un
doubtedly did bear on the auburn.
After which little exchange of civili
ties, Mr. Wilmington retired into the
privacy ol his segar-smoke, and
j Charley proceeded to make his re-
quest.
"Well, I don't know," replied Miss
Adela, languidly playing with her
fan, "i hit sort of thing is so apt to be
tiresobie ion't yon think so?"
Charley, who certainly had not
thought she found that or any other
sort of thing tiresome in his company,
remained speechless, while she re
sumed, "I am afraid you really must
excuse me this time but I dare say,
Mr. Dennis, Miss Florence Wells
would be happy to go if you asked
her."
The blood rushed to Charley's face
at this last piece of politeuess'and he
took leave of the young lady, inward
ly vowing that he would excuse her
uot only for that, but for all future
time ; that if she were to remain the
rest of her natural life in Hlackville,
she should be troubled with no more
tiresome attentions from him.
"Florry. indeed!" he said to him-
self, indignantly
"She may sneer
: 1: she likes but si
kes but she is not one-half so
nice as Florry and take away the
frizzes aud flounces, I do believe not
one-half so pretty!"
He really did believe it, none the
less that it was wounded vanity
which hail opened his eyes to the
perception. Ann, witn all his an;er
and mortification, there was mingled
an odd sense of relief, which would
seem to indicate that he was nothing
deeper than his fancy which had leen
taken by Miss Hrent.
"What if I were to n-A- I'l.irrr"
uis reueciious went on. "Uniy it is
so long since I've been near her. Hut,
then, she's such a sweet-tempered
little thing. I've half a mind to risk
it. And the end of it was that he
did risk it; and that was how he
came to give Julio- Willis occasion to
quote a very unflattering old proverb
on ins beiialt. And now, as he Las
waited at the gate quite long enough,
we will let him in, and see how he
fared within doors.
It was an absurdly constrained in
terview. .Neither I lorry nor Charley
felt equal to bearing the burden of the
conversation. Julia could have done
it well enough, if she had chosen, but
she would not. So there was mean
ingless remarks, interposed with
pauses longer than the code of well-
regulated society admits.
"It is quite a while siuce I was
here," blundered Cbarlev after one of
these, in sheer despair of anything
better to say.
"I wonder what you are here for
now?" retorted Julia, unable longer
to keep silence, while Florry stitched
for dear life.
Charley could not very well answer
the truth, and, not knowing what
l'lse to answer, held his tongue. Jul
ia, however, had no scruples to hold
hers, which, moreover, at the best ot
times was apt to be an unruly mem
ber, so she said in her downright
way.
"I suppose that Miss Hrent has
had enough of you, and given you
leave to remember old acquaintances
at last."
This hit the case so exactly, that
it left Charley without a single word
to say for himslf. Perceiving which,
Julia laughed in scornful triumph,
and, rising from her seat, added iron
ically. "It is hard to have to lose the
pleasure of your society now that it
has grown such a rarity, but I have
an engagement, so I hope you will
excuse me." With which parting
squib, and a whisper in passing
"lie firm, Florry!" she left the
room. And wecannotdo better than
follow her.
Having proceeded to fulfill her en
gagement the rummaging of a chest
of drawers, up-stairs .Julia who
guessed Charley's errand well enough,
waited for him to make it known and
be gone. Hut never, surley, Lad a
simple proposal for a drive taken
such a while in the asking and refus
ing! Exactly how long she bad to
wait, Julia eould not say, but a very
long time, indeed, measured by her
patience. Just as the last thread of
that was giving way, she heard the
outside door close, and, flyiug to the
window, saw Charley Iennis' head
bobbing in and out between the tall
hollyhock borders. In less time than
it takes to tell it, she was down in
the parlor, where she fouud Florry
still stitching away, as if the comple
tion of six-year-old Harry's frock
was the-oue thing'for which the whole
universe was waiting.
"Ah!" said Julia, exultingly, as
sho advanced, "revenge i sweet,
let the moralists say what they like!
I haven't seen you, I don't know
when, with such a nice color. Well,
I hope you've sent Mr. Charley Den

"N no," said Florry, with an in

"No!" repeated Julia, looking
dobtfully at her, "what do you mean
by 'No ?' What Lave you done, then
never promise-tl tJ go with him
surely ?"
"I I've promised to marry him,''
answered Florry, in a voice between
laugbing and crying.

The fchillook of the White Mle
The Shillook tribe inhabits the en
tire bank of the White Nile,
occunving a territory about two
Lundred miles Ion? and about ten
miles wide and which extend to the
mouth of the Gazelle Hivcr. This
territory is densely populated. After

Shillooks are the first tribe of wild
savages which Dr. Schweinfurth en
counters. As his boat neared the
landing of the first village a great
crowd of naked creatures swarmed
together to meet him. The first sight
of a throng of savages sud lenly pre

are infants at the breast the work of
fastening the hair into some particu
lar shape is begun, and in time it be
comes effectually clotted together, so
as to permanently retain the desired
form.
These savages are accustomed to
plaster their bodies with ashes as a
protection against insects, which
gives them a thoroughly diabolical
aspect. The movements of their
lean, bony limbs are so languid, and j
their repose so perfect, that whoever!
comes as a novice among mem can
hardly resist the impression that in
rrazin? at these ash-rrrav forms he is
looking upon smouldering corpses
rather than upon living bcinzs.
The only conception the Shillooks
entertain of a higher existence is lim
ited to their reverence for a certain
hero, who is called the father of their
race, and who is supposed to have
conducted them to the land which
they at present occunv. In case cf
famine, or in order that they may
have rain, or that they may reap a
good harvest, they call upon him by
name. They imagine of the dead
that they are lingering among the
living, and still attendthem;
they cherish old traditions, and
venerate the memory of their ances
tors with all the fervor that more civ
ilized nations be.tow upon their relig
ious belief.
At Fashoda, a small town provid
ed with a garrison for the mainte
nance of Egyptian power, Pr.
Schweinfurth stopped several days
in order to complete his store of pro
visions, and also to await the arrival
of several boats, which were to ac
company him to the Gazelle Hiver.
He improved the time by making
short excursion inland, and by watch
ing the customs of the Shillooks.
The Egyptian governor of this por
tion of the Shillook country appears
to be a complete sovereign, regulating
not only the public but also the pri
vate affairs of Lis subjects. One day
a young girl, abashed and dejected
came to him, and with her speech
half choked with emotion, she be
sought him to interpose Lis autLority
to set aside the obstacles which her
parents threw in the way of her com
pleting her marriage engagement
with a young Shillook, whose name
was Yod. The hinderance to the
wedding was simply the fact that the
young man possessed no cattle pos
session of cattle among Shillooks as
well as among Pinkas being the sole
distinction between rich and poor.
The governor inquired whether Yod
was not at least the owner of a few
cows. Her reply wa?, "No, Yod Las
no cows; but Yod wants me, and I
want Yod." Hut though she urged
Ler point with much earnestness and
with many tears beseeching the gov
ernor to pronounce in Ler favor, as
Lis judgment would constrain ber
parents, he persisted in upholding pa
rental authority and the custom of
the country. The girl kept saying
"we must" and "we will;" the judge
could speak only of bullocks. There
seemed to be not settling the matter,
when he said, "You must go and
wait, wait tiil Yod has bullocks
enoujrh to satisfy vour parents."
Hnllocks or dollars it is all the same
story ; and in this one phase of family
life the parents of the poor Shillook
savage and those born to all the ad
vantages of civilization and culture
play the same part. From 'A Nat

BathlM.
As the season of the year is ap
proaching when the custom of bath
ing is most popular, we deem it advi
sable to throw cut a few bints on the
subject. Though it should be prac
tised the year round, yet it has its
periodical fits, like marbles among
boys, Loops among girls, and Louse
Lunting among the heads of families.
Hathing, like eating and drinking,
is an old, old custom. It is not un
unlikcly that Adam and Pve tried its
virtue before they went out of the
garden. At any rate, when they
were expelled they both took a bath
in tears. Sorrow almost invaria
riablr resorts to that method of com
fort. '
Homer sings of the bath as a ven
erable institution in his early day.
Anciently it was the first refreshment
offered to a guest Nowadays we
proffer a warmer meal, a glass of cold
water, or some "hot stuff." The pub.
lie baths of Greece and Home were
many and magnificient. They were
as common as the days of Antonius,
Plocietiao, and some other Emperors,
as liquor shops are in American cit
ies. The batbs in those days, unlike
our shops, were used for cleansing

order to get the necessary papers, to
sware that the lady was of lawful
age ; and, although it was a false
hood, he swore it btfure the deputy
in the probate oiTice. the deputy be
ing a woman. The new made
mother-in-law was not pleased with
the match, and vented her indigna
tion by having the young man arres
ted for perjury. The trial Las just
ended, and although the defendant's
counsel argued that a woman being
incompetent to administer an oath no
perjury was committed, the court
overruled the point, and the prisoner
was convicted. The case will be car
ried before the Supreme Court on an
error of the judge's ruling, and the
main issue then will be the eligibility
of a woman to the office of deputy
probate juggc. The case is a highly
interesting one in that locality, as
deciding the validity of many acts
done in an official capacity by the
deputy in question.

The Srirntijic American describes
the new wood carpeting, which is
coming into extensive use. as follows:
"The fabric is made of slats of some
ornamental shape, glued or cemented
npen a cloth backing. The slats or
strips of wood are different colors,
and are arranged to produce all the
effect of tessellated floors, mosaic
work, etc., and. being about a quar
ter of an inch in thickness, they will
wear many years. They are finished
in oil, and fit together so tightly that
the joints are as perfect as inlaid
work. The surface thus produced
can therefore be scrubbed, washed,
and oiled when needed, precisely like
other floors made of ornamental
woods, which floors they resemble in
all respect when laid."
