Oreat t.attlra have len touwriit and lmimriaui siesres inaiuuiiued, of which the details areas yet pre served only in the new?iapers or in the transient lut)licai.4is of the dav, but which uuirhtnowio lake their place in permanent ami auuicnuc his tory.

Of the soft gray mist of the mornlny, weaves A rose in the roso's loom. The feg, like a great white cloth, Iraws out of the orchard and corn.

BY EVA EVERGREEN. I declare, Jeremiah, hain't you got married jet? I ntTer savr such cuLfarned old coose as vou be! Here's lota of gals wouldn't want a second atkin?!" and Aunt Sallr Sjkis, dowa ou her annual visit to ber nephew, regarded him with scornful commiseration through her glasses.' I know it!" fumed Jeremiah: ' if tbev d atk me now I Rut its awful to " "If vou ain't a numbskull !'' inter rupted Aunt Sallv. "You'll die sin gle, then ; for a man who ain't got the epi'ukto do his own sparkin' ain't wuth wastin' time on. I dec'are if IwiSFome'at younger, soooei'n 6ee you go on in tais sbniess way I d marrv vou nivself." "Couldn't you. anvhow?' groaned her hopeful nephew. "Anyhow :" repeated the lady. "You might a? well a;-k your grand- mo.iiir. l d look p.eity marryin' the fellow I've many a tin;e held over y k ee as a boy. I hoped to have hicoried' some fcenC into you !" and she left the room ere he could pre vent it, leaTingour hero in a perplex ed perturbation, which ended, how ever, in a resolve to redeem his char acter and sallv forth ia search of a wife. Across the street, in a neat cottage, lived three sisters of less than thirty yers, and many longing glances had been seat tb.ouph it closed parlor blinds toward hm dwelling; many times his passing figure bad set their hearts w ildly uuttcring, only to sink in disappointed vexation as he failed to come in, aud at this cottage Jere miah resolved to make his first mat riaionia! venture. We will pass over the prepara tions incident to this momentous er rand without comment. Tbe atten dant fijaicial damages were tbe com ple'e demoralization of half & dozen silk ties and three cambric handker chiefs, of which he anointed one with hair oil and deluged another with liquid blacking before recovering his senses sufficiently to render the third redolent of the "I love you," as a delicate interpretation of his senti ments; so that it was in no enviable state of mind that he brought np at last on the Misses Simpson's door step and knocked for admittance. Tbe door was opened promptly by a slip shod damsel of fourteen, who stood pushing a disordered crop ol bair out of her eyes. "Is is Miss Simpson in V stam mered Jeremiah. The child gave her L ad an Affir mative plunge, and was immediately extinguished by t'.e precipitated shock of hair. "One on 'em is !" she replied sen tentiously. ! "Can i see her, if if she is notj engaged V - i aoe nam t coin' notnin': come in Our hero was ushered into a dark ened parlor, and banging the door shut she left him to grope his way to a chair. Presently foot steps were beard; Jeremiah's heart began an obstieperou3 thnmping, and had there been an open door or window handy, to his eternal disgrace be it 5poken, he woold have embraced the mode of escape. But there was something vastly better to be embraced, and in another moment Miss Simpson stood before him. "So delighted to sec vou, Mr. Sykes! Isn't it a lovely day ?" "Yes, yes !" stammered Jeremiah ; "so pleasant I thought I'd come and " "Yes, Mr. Sykes!" prompted his hestesj, as ocr, hero appeared to be falling into a state of hopeless im becility. "I thought I'd come to to it's such a beautiful day !" "Very!" endorsing the sentiment as emhusiasticly as if it was perfect ly original; "add your farm looks so attractive. 'I often envy you your lot!'" "Yes, 1 like it!" murmered Jere miah, showing symptoms of recovery. "Oh, yoa must! and you have a good housekeeper? It's so hard for a single man to get suited in that re spect." "Yes," Jeremiah sighed, "mine does ve.- well, but I feel the need of a a " "A wife 1" said Miss Simpson ap preciatively; "yes, you should Lave one." ., "I'm going to!" energetically "and you live so near, perhaps " Miss Simpsoa became delightfully confused. . "Please to speak a little plainer, Mr. Sykes." "I I want a wife. Miss Simpson 1 Will you have me?" . A in iu tried eob aBd chuckle escap ed Miss Simpson's lips; and this be ing tbe appropriate crisis, she let her head sink upon bis shoulder. - :, j "Oh, Jeremiah ! are you sincere ? Of course I am! Aint yon?"j said Jeremiah, taking the cue. j "Sineere now and always 1 and 1'llj prove it by fixing aa early day," andj the customary lover's seal" served as aa appropriate punctuation point. 1 ESTAHLJSHED, 18 2 SOMERSET, PA., WEDNESDAY.MAY 19. IS75. "Now it's all done !" ezclainied tbe reileved lover; "only don't tell any body yet awnile!. It'll make such talk , and I feel so 60 nervous!" "Your wish shall be my law, Jere miah!" was the obedient response; and an hour subsequently Jeremiah took his departure, leaving his fiance in a delightfully satisSed state, and finding bis housekeeper in a commen surate consternation at his prolonged absence, and on tbe point of investi gating tbe well to ascertain if he bad committed suicide therein. "I didn't know sparking was so easy," be soliloquized over his even ing pipe; "bnt there! I've no idea which ono of the three 1 proposed to! I must reraembe; and ask to-mor row. bne'U Know anynow 1" On tbe morrow, however, Jerusha. the fortunate one, found to her vexa tion that she had a business errand that must be attended to. Her sis ters were likewise gone out ; and be fore starting she called her Abigail. ' Betsy, if Mr. Sykes calls o-day tell him I'm out. Do you hear?" "Yes, 'm" said Betsy looking as stupid as possible. . "Don't forget," and Jerusha de parted; while two hours later Jere miah again stood at his inamorata's; door, but in some uncertainty as to whether the previous day's experi ence was reai, pr only a ballucina tion. "I'm sure I carre here," he mused ; "and that sbe sbe said 'yes.' Anyhow, I'll ask her again to make sure. I ain't a bit afraid now!" Meanwhile tbe second sister, hav ing coje earlier than usual, was seated deep in meditation and em broidery in the parlo". The slip-shod Abigail, on duty, as usual, answered bis modest knock. : "Is Miss Simpson in?" Jeremiah asked, in a low tone. The girl treated him to a stupid stare, and then her usual plunge: "Une on 'em is." "Waiting for me, of course : I'm right," murmered our hero. "She's ia the parlor," pursued BeUv, with a dive of her hand in that direction. "All right," and Jeremiah slipped a five cent piece into ber willing hand: "go on with your work I know the way." The slight noise had not disturbed Melinda, and for a moment Jeremiah cofT:emp!ated his inamorate. ! Yes, sbe was the" at least as far as his short sight and the dark room reveal ed; and, stealing up behind her, he bent down and treated himself and herself !a such cases it's generally a mutual treat, is it not reader ? to a hearty smack. Melinda turned with a shrill scream. : "Ob, oh, Mr.fiykes!" she faltered, hiding her face. . ' .. : - wcremiab'B - rth went 'speedily around ber jvaist, his courage rising immediately. "Yo j. ain't mad, are you ?

"I declare I never loved anybody so before!" protested the happy 8ivaio ; "give me a kiss ,my angel, to make certain." His fiance obeyed with alacrity, and Jeremiah at last arose to go. "When will you come again, Jerry," his lady-love asked. "1 shall be away to town a few days after a ring and thing. And don't tell anybody we're engaged yet a while," with a slight lingering trepidation. " ' ; 5 "I here and obey !'' was the meek response, "and yen won t won t ' twisting one of hi3 coat buttons "let any of your city friends win " ''No one shall win me from you exclaimed Jeremiah, "so make baste for the wedding!"

At evening tbe other sisters got borne, and Jerosna rummoned ber Abigail. "Was Mr. Sykes here to-day Uet?y rw The usual plung forward served as answer. - , "Did he come in?" Another plunge. "Did he stav long ?" "Little while.'.' "lloping against hope, no doubt!" murmered Jerusha, and Betsv de parted, not feeling called upon to vol unteer any information. Fr several days Alvina noticed an anxiety on tbe part of her sisters which they vainly strove to bide. Jerusha, especially, grew alarmed at ber lover's absence, and doubts of bis constancy and visions f "breach of promise" suits haunted . her dis turbed fancies, while Melinda for a while bore her lovers absence with great equanimity, but as it grew pro longed became nervous in her turn. Finally, the two sisters bad another call from home, leaving Alvina in charge of tbe bonse, acd each one soognt tier witn toe identical re quest : ' -, "If Mr. Sykes,' or any one" the "anyone" to lull suspicion "calls for me, tell them I'll be home by evening." ' A'.rina assented; but when alone gave ber besd a contemptuous little toss. "Mr. Sykes visit won't be for you. I guess some one else is tbe attrac tion here.". ' VI'., r ' Late that afternoon, Alvina, from the . parlor , window, : saw Jeremiah leave bis gate, and actually enter hers! She gave ber bands one elas tic clasp, a ad presently admitted by Sally, Jeremiah once more faced his destiny, bat entirely bereft, during his short absence, of every spark of courage or confidence. - - - "Good'' afternoon, Sir.

"'Love uie better than any one else' !" shrieked Melinda. "'Never loved anybody 60 !- fore' I" shrieked Melinda. '"Don't say anything about it' you deceiving wretch!" vociferated Jerusha. " 'Keep it secret !' you unfaithful scoundrel !" exploded Melinda. "'Don't care for anvooe else'!" cbiuedin Alvina, suddenly enligh tened. "I don't understand," faltered Jeremiah; "what have I done?" "lou tola me I was your love !" exclaimed Jerusha. "You asked tie to becomo only Mrs. Sykes !" added Melinda. "You said I wa3 the idol of your heart!" affirmed Alvina "I I think you must be mistaken, ladies.

"But, my dear Miss Simpson, I wasn't " "0b, of course you wasn't!" said Melinda; you have excuses enough, no doubt!" "But, ladies; if you'll only listen to me " "We've listened quite longenough!" put in Alvina. "For heaven's sake, ladies, whom have I made love to?" cried Jeremiah wildly. "To me ! and I thought you meant it!" said Jerusha. "To me ! and I believed you !" ex claimed Melinda. "To me! and engaged all the time to the other two !" sobbed Alvina.

"I ll spoil your netarious games with any one elsel I'll denounce you as a deceter! I'll sue you for breach of promise!" cried the sisters one after the other. - Jeremiah made three frantic dives for his hat, the door, and the street, bringing up in a heap in bis arm chair, with his housekeeper nearly strangling him in trying to loosen his cravat, and asking, "if he had a fit, or wa3 crazy, or what ?" "What ! i guess," he responded, and an hour later wrote to inform Aunt Sally of his misfortunes; and beg her to come and take care of him for awhile. Sbe came, bringing with her a rosy-cheeked niece, at sight of whom Jeremiah fled precipitately to his room. Two days Aunt Sally spent in railing unmercifully at her unlucky nephew; and thea, fairly starved out, he was obliged to come down stairs and meet bis consin. Ar 5rst he was dreadfully shy; then Susies's merry way captivated him in spite of himself; and at last ac counts he had found 'balm in Gillead,' and the Misses Simpson were not present at the wedding. lloasehold Jllnl.

Tbe man went out on the roof, and, tying a broom to a rope, dropped it down to see if the flue was clear. Mean time Chubb got inside tie flue below. and just as he did so the soft end of the broom touched his head two or three time3, as the man jerked it up acd down. Chubb sprang out into the room in a condition of frantic excitement He was certain there was a wild animal of some kind in the chimney choking it up. He seiz ed his gun and determined to kill it. So, boluilg the muzzle ia the flue. he pulled the trigger. While he was getting tha gun, the man on the roof completed his inestigations and sat down on the top of the chimney to rest himself and enjoy the scenery. As soon as Chubbs gun went off, the man knew about it, and did not wait for further suggestions. He sudden ly slid to the roof and from thence to to the shed, where he relied about ia great agony. He weighed one pound more when they took him home than be did when he came, and the doctors cousider it doubtful whether they can erer get all the shot out of his flesh. The next man that comes to examine Chubb's chim ney will probablv have him locked up somewhere with bi3 gen until the experiments are concluded. How to Dress Salad. Ia tie spring of the year there h nothing which comes upon the tablo that is more pleasant, palatable and refreshing, than salad properly dress ed. We may add that, to our taste, there are few thiDgs Jess inviting when poorly dressed, or not dressed atalL How often have our palaces been dit-gusted and our feeling shock ed by sitting at a table on which was a beautiful dish of tender early let tuce, but no'hing whatever to use upon it save vinegar and (maybe) sugar, or Itorrdxo referens!) a boua tiful supply of bacon grease. Here is a receipt for salad dressing which we have often used and vre guaran tee that it will augment the flavor and promote the digestibility of the salad. Take the yolks of three hard boilded eggs, crurublo them with a fork or spoon using silver, if you have it add about a teaspoonful of grauad mustard, a teaspoonful each of sugar and salt, and mix all well together. Then add in three por tions a desert spoonful of pure olive oil, and rub the whole to a uniform smoothne;S. The addition of twice the ri.uan.Ly of oil add to the flaor with many, acd is certainly very healthy. Next, give a dash ol Cay enne pepper or pepper sauce; finally add a gill of vinegar. With a little experience, tact and patience, adding to or lessening any of the ingredients according to taste, any of our lady readers will be enabled to furnish their salads in such a style as will delight the palate and call for a bless ing upon the head of the housewife. When brought to the table it will be well to have the salad plentifully sprinkled with slices of hard boiled Anent the Pope.

The ink used by ancient writers were formed of lampblack, or tbe black taken from bornt ivory, and soot from furnaces and baths. Some have supposed that the black liqio. which the cuttle fish yields was fre quently employed. One thing is cer tain, that whatever were tbe compo nent ingredients, irom tho blackness and solidity in the most ancie n man uscript from an inkstand found at Herculaneum, in which the ink ap pears as thick as oil, and fro n chem ical analysis, the 'nL of antiquity was much more opaque, as well as encaus tic, than that which is used ia mod ern timc3. loks of different colors were much in vogue; red, purple, blue, and gold and silve inks, were the principal varieties. The red was made from vermilion, cinnabar and carmine; tbe purple from murex; one kind of which, called the purple en caustic, was appropriated to the ex clusive use of the emperors. Gold ink was much more p' pu'.ar among tbe Greeks than amon- the Iiomana. j During the middle or ilark ages, the I manufacture both of ;c and silver ink was an extensive and lucrative braneh of trade, and the illuminated mauuscripts whieh remain aro a strik ing proof of tbe highest degree of perfection to which tho art was car ried The marking of the inks them selves was a distinct business: aa- other connected wnb it, and to which it owed its origin, was, that of in scribing the titles, capital., as well aa emphatic words, iu colored and gold and siiver inkj. Imitation or Free Ions Stones. There ia iu Paris a vast estaliab ment the most extensive of its kind in the wold wncre tho imitation of pearls, diamonds, and precious stones generally is ce Tied on with all the skill which modem ingeucity renders possible, and those productions are sent to the shops of all lands. Here the whole process of transforming a few grains of dirty, h rvy looking sand inm diamonds of sparkling hue is connant'y going on. The sand thus caiplocd, and upon which tho! whole art depends, is found in the! forests of Fontaineblenu ; it appears to possess some peculiar qualities cf adaptation to this purpose. The coloring matter for imitating emeralds, rubies, and sapphires is en tirely mineral, and has been brought to high pcfeetion. Hundreds of op eratives aie employed ia polishing the colored stones and in lining tie false pearls with fish scales and wax. The ncales of the roach and dace ore chiefly employed for this purpose ; tbey have to be stripped from the fisa while living, or the glistening hue so much admired in the real pearl will not be imitated. These Paris pearls have been or late years so perfected that the Roman "pearl ba3, to a a great extent, been super seded. The setting is always of real gold, and the fashion of the newest kind. Another Tletlrn. A tragic occu.-re ice in San Fran cisco was founded on inconstancy in love, but tbe usual conditions were reversed. D. K. Meek, an insurance agent, did not believe in formal mar riages, but held that tbe mutual con sent of the par.ies was a sufficient marital bond. He formed an union on that basis with Miss Labor, tbe daughter ot bis business partucr, acd during two years they lived affec tionately together. Not long ago tbe wife left home without wurnitg of her intention, and declared that as1 there had been no marriage ceremony ' and as she had ceased to love ber; husband, she was not bound to live with him anv lon?er. Meek was heart broken. He implored her to! return, but she coldly retorted that 1 . . ' grow saia.i sbe was net his wife.
