BT CHABLIS MACKAY. If fairy tales were trae, And fortunos wore my hap, I'll tell yon what I'd do, If I'd the wishing oap: Td make eaoh maid a wife, Who'd give both heart and hand; And all domestic strife ' Td banish from the land. ' No arm that wrought or plough'd . Should over toil in rain; 1 The great should not be proud, The small should not complain; The friendship of a friend Should last through good and ill; And, constant to tho end, Should guide the wauu'ier still. - All rulers should be just, And people should be wise. And Bwords and spears should rust, For lack of enemies; The templos of our time Should bless the poorest lot, And misery and crimo Should die and be forgot. MATC8~W?K?WQ* I had silently watched my aunt for an boor-my Annt Katharine, who sat silently by the window, with her sewing. Through the light- meshes ot tho lace curtains, tho bright sun? shine came in and fell upon her soft, dark dross, smooth hair, and pretty white work, while the fresh breeze, floating in through the open window, blew into bloom a carnation pink upon her cheeks. And sitting there in the breeze and sunshine, I saw that my Aunt Katharine was very handsome. At first, I thought it strange that I had never noticed that fact before; bat it was not strange, for children seldom think anything about parents' or guardians' looks, except that they ba pleasant or un? pleasant, and I was little more than a child. Ever since I could remember, Aunt Katharine, with her dark dress, smooth hair and gentle ways, had taken care of me; and when I grew into a tall girl of fifteen, old enough to go to kissing parties and have young beaux, she watched over me still. She was my mother, my com? panion, my friend. I never realized my orphanage or want of other kin, but had been the same careless, "light? hearted, merry girl ever since I could remember, that I was on the Jone morning I watched her at work in the sunlight. She looked up at last. "Addie, isn't it most bchool-time?" She' Haid. "Yes, auntie, I am going in a minute; but first tell me-" "What, child?" ""Why you never were married." "Because I never liked anybody well enough to marry him. Now go and get ready for school." She smiled as she spoke, and after a glance at her face, I smiled too, and ran off up stairs to get my bonnet and shawl Coming down stairs again, I put my head in at the sit? ting-room door. "Aunt Katharine?" "Well!" "If you found anybody you liked well enough, wouldn't you marry him?" "I don't know-I suppose so. Why, what in the world bas got into your head, Addie?" I laughed, slammed the door and bounded through the hall into the road. Half way to the school-house, I met my teacher, Mr. Charles Deve? reux. "Good morning, Miss Addie. Re? citations all ready? "Yes, sir," I answered, and he passed on ahead, I sauntered on slow? ly, thinking of my Aunt Katharine. I thought it would be a nice plan for her to be married. The next thought was, who would she marry ? There were only half dozen unmar? ried middle-aged men in the village. Aunt Katharine was twenty-seven, and of course she wouldn't marry a very young man. I rapidly enume? rated the half dozen eligible ones and their suitability for my plan. Law? yer Hyde, thirty, rich, aristocratic and stingy. Mr. Leighton, thirty five, handsome, good, well off, but a widower; and I've heard aunt Katha? rine say she did not like widowers. Mr. Pierson, twenty-eight, hand? some, wealthy, but too fast; she would not like him. Dr. Jarvis, thirty-six, small, crabbed, miserable, and unbearable generally. Mr. Howe, too homely to be thought of; and Captain Haynes, with his yellow, bushy whiskers, and nine thousand dollars' worth of mortgaged proper? ty, which he is always talking about, worBe yet. Rather a sorry array. Just then the school-bell rang, and I went in to my books, and Mr. Charles Devereux, aged twenty-eight, handsome, intelligent, well-educated and unmarried. The class in intel? lectual philosophy -was called first, and though I bad carofully commit? ted my lesson to memory the evening before, my late thoughts had quito driven all remembrance of it from my bead, iud my recitation was imperfect. Mr. Devereux looked sur prisedly a; me, but said nothing. In French g> amma)- my performance was still worse. "Mise Addie," said Mr. Devereux, as I passed by him on my way to my sea-, "do you have any trouble with those French verbs in learning your les IOU ?" "Yes, a little," I replied. I'You want a little reviewing, I think. If I bave time, I will call in at your bouse this evening, and help you a little, 77hiIo you are studying." Mr. Devereux - knew that I always studied in the evening, and had seve? ral, times called in and spent an hour in assisting me with a particularly difficult task, designed for the next day's recitation. So I was not sur? prised to hear, him make tb is offer, though a little ashamed of the cause of it, as my failure had resulted from my wilful inattention and careless? ness. I thanked him, however, with a flushed face, and went to my seat. But it was not entirely shame that flushed ray face. As I expected, Mr. Devereux came in the evening to explain my French lesson. But he did not find me alone. Aunt Katharine sat by the table sew? ing, and looked even handsomer than in the morning. My heart gave a flutter of impatient anticipation every time Mr. Devereux looked at her, and after the lessons were through, I did my best to make her talk to pienso him. My aunt always talked well, but she quito excelled herself in conversation that night. I saw that Mr. Devereux was interest? ed, and I was delighted with the suc? cess of my secret plan. In tho couran o? tue evening, John Aubrey, my lover, came in. Of I course, I claimed John as my lover, I for, though ho was a nico young man of twenty-seven, and I a mero child of a girl, hardly sixteen, he lind beanxed me to parties and concerts all one winter, and told me a dozen times that I was the sweetest, pret? tiest and most lovely girl in all Hart? ford. So that, when John came in, I went and sat down by him in a cosy corner, and left Aunt Katharine to entertain Mr. Devereux-^-a plan which I thought nt first seemed to suit all around. But, after a little time, I saw John casting uneasy glances toward the place where Mr. Devereux, looking superbly handsome, sat talking with my aunt. "You needn't be jealous of him, John,"I said; "ho's only my teacher." John started and leaned back in his seat without saying a word. Neither of the gentlemen stayed very late, John going away directly after Mr. Devereux, and I went to my room elated with my prosperity, or rather tho prosperity of my plans. I did not need assistance in my studies befere Mr. Devereux came again, and after a short time it came to be a regular thing for him to spend an evening once or twice a week with us. "With us, I say, because I could see that, though ho admired my Aunt Katharine very much, he had too good taste to monopolize her company entirely, to the exclusion of mine. I enjoyed those evenings very much. It seemed to me that Mr. Devereux grew remarkably agreeable very fast. Sometimes John would come in, but John seemed to have grown strange and moody of late. I thought it was because Mr. Devereux was at our house so much, and en? deavored to please him by extra attention when he did spend an even? ing with ns, but it didn't seem to be of much use. I resented his silence and inattention to mo one night, and after that ho didn't come to us for nearly a month. But we seemed to get along just as well without him at least, I did, though Aunt Katha? rine asked me a number of times about the cause of his absence. "He is sulky, I suppose. Don't fret about me, Aunt Katharine; it don't trouble me at all," I said. A few evenings after, John made his appearance, and entered the par? lor where Mr. Devereux and I sat playing chess, while my aunt was writing a letter at a side table. I thought it would bo rather awkward for him at first, but ho came forward easily, and after speaking to Mr. Devereux and myself, crossed the room and seated himself by my aunt. Pleased with this arrangement, 1 devoted myself to my game, and did noP look around for somo half an hour afterward, when my attention was attracted by the sound of John Aubrey's voice, which, though low, was remarkably earnest and emphatic, I turned my head and gazed in won der. My aunt's cheeks were flusher crimson, and John's face, as seen bj me for an instant, was palo and agi tated. I turned to Mr. Devereux ir astonishment, but ho only smiler slightly, made a move, and ther waited for mo to do tho same. Bu I could not play from excitemou caused by the scene I had observed t moment before, and lost tho gam< through inattention. "Shall wo play again?" said Mr Devereux. I shook my head, and ho replacei tho pieces in a box, and then took U] a book. The next moment Joh] arose, and my annt went with him t< the door. She did not come back fo some time, and when sho did, Mr Devoroux was preparing to go. H looked up quickly at her entrance and then asked ncr laughingly, ii i was amicably settled, and if h might congratulated her? Sh blushed, but said, "Yes, at som other timo," and bade him good night. I had stood by in round eyed wonder and bewilderment. "When the door closed on him m; amit looked steadily at mo for a mo ment, then laughed, and finally burs into hysteric tears. I was frightened She put her arm about me. "Addie, aro you sure yon didn' , like John?" she asked. "I believe I did a little last winier but 1 don't at all now." . i "Are you nure?" "Quite sure," I sullen-" "Wait-doyou know who you aro talking to?" "What do you mean, Katharine?" "I am John Aubrey's betrothed Wife, Addie!" and she laughed and then cried again. I stood mutely staring her. At last I found words to say: "Why, Aunt Katharine, I thought it waa I whom John was in love with 1" She shook her head. "And I thought Mr. Devoren x was in love with yon !" "You must ask him about that," sho said, smiling through her tears. And I did ask him the next even? ing, while we stood by an open win? dow, and my Aunt Katharine sat by John Aubroy, in the cosy corner, where I used to sit with him. "?? it possible that you haven't been courting Aunt Katharine, all the time, Mr. Deveroux ?" I said. How ho laughed 1 "Ia it possible that you don't know , that I have been courting ?ou all this time ?" "Mr. Doveronx !" I exclaimed. But he wasn't jesting-and neither was I, when I promised, a year later, to "Love, honor and obey him," through lifo. John Aubrey and my Aunt Katha? rine were married at tho same time, which my aunt said was a great sav? ing of trouble and wedding cake. Charleston Advertisements.
