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.
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
"Addie, isn't it most bchool-time?"
"Yes, auntie, I am going in a
minute; but first tell me-"
""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?
"If you found anybody you liked
well enough, wouldn't you marry
"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?
"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
"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
"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<
"Shall wo play again?" said Mr
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."
"Are you nure?"
"Quite sure," I
"Wait-doyou know who you aro
"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
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
"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,"
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.
