I conKl not have suited myself half mo well had I been left to choose." "But you have not seen the white cellar yet. It is a treasure of ita kind. Let's go down again." Tney went downstairs together, he talking gaily, she with a troubled look on her face. After duly admiring the place, she put a timid hand on his arm, and said: "But, Arthur, dear, let's have no wine in iL" "Why," he asKed in surprise. "Because I have resolved If J am ever the mistress of a house, thereshall be no liquors kept in it no Social glasses' for friends." 'Why, Katy, you are unreasonable. I did not know you carried your temperance opinions so far as that. Of course I shall keep wine in my house, and entertain my friends with it, too." She raised her face appealingly. "Arthur!" she said, in a tone of voice which he knew how to interpret. Arthur's brow grew cloudy. "But you can not fear for me?" he said with half offended pride. "I must fear for you, Arthur, if you begin as he did. And I fear for others besides for the sons and husbands and fathers who may learn at our cheerful board to love the poison that shall slay them!" They went up the steps again and sat on the sofa in the dining-room for a few mo ments, while Katy put on her hat and drew on her gloves. The argument was kept up. It is un necessary that we should repeat all that was said on both sides. It ended at last, as simi lar discussions have ended before. Neither was willing to yield Katy, because she felt that her whole future happiness might be involved in it: Arthur, because be thought it would be giving away toa woman's whim , and would sacrifice too much of his popu arity with his friends. Ue had bought his house, paid for it, and furnished it handsomely, and in a few weeks was to bring Katy as its mistress. All the afternoon they had been loking it over to gether, happy as two birds in a newly nnished nest. But when Arthur closed the door and put the key in hi pocket, in the chill, waning light of the December after noon, and gave Katy his arm to see her home, it was ail "broken up' between them, and "To Let" was put on the door of the pretty house the very next morning. It was the most foolish thing to do; but then lovers can always find something to quarrel about. They parted with a cool "Good evening," the door of Katy's lodging house. She went up to her room to cry; he went home hurt and angry, but secretly resolving to see her again and give her a chance to say she was in the wrong. lie would wait a few days, however; it would not do to let her see that he was in a hurry to "make it up." He did wait, nearly a wek, and when he called at the modest lodging-house where he had ' heen wont to visit so often, he was told that Miss Gardiner had been gone three days. Gone where?" he asked, slow to believe. She did not tell me, sir. She said fche was not coming back. Her aunt lives at Bristol" He then took the next train to Bristol and investigated, but neither there nor in anv other place, though he searched for months afterwards, did he find sign or trace of Katy Gardiner. All 11 this happened more than a year be I saw Katy, but we three "factory fore Kiris," who lodged at Mrs. Howell's with her, of course knew nothing about it. She came to the factory and applied for work. The Superintendent thought ber too delicate for stich work, but she persisted, and, in fact, she improved in health, spirits and looks after she became used to the work and simple fare of the factory girls.- She was a stranger to us all, and it seemed likely she would remain bo. But one day Mary Bascom's dreaa caught in a part of the machinery, and before any one eise could think what to do, Katy had sprung to her side and pulled her away by main strength from the terrible danger that threatened her. ' After that Mary and Lizzie Payne and I, who were her dearest friends, were Katy's sworn allies. We all lodged together then in the big "Factory boarding-house." But Katy took it into her head that we should have so much nicer times in a private lodging to ourselves, and when sue took anything into her head she generally carried it through In less than a week she had found the very place she wanted, arranged matters with the Superintendent and had us sheltered under Mrs. Howell's vine and rig tree. We four girls were the proud possessors of a tolera bly large, double-bedded apartment, with a queer little dressing room attached "and the liberty of the parlor to receive visitors in a proviso at which we all laughed. This was "home" to us after the labor of the day. Indeed, and in truth, Katy made the place so charming that we forgot the factory girls when we got to it. She impro vised cunning little things out of trifles that are generally thrown away as useless, and the flowers growing in broken rota in our wirdows were a wonder to behold. She alway had a fresh book or periodical on her table: and better than this, she had brought to us the larger cultivation and the purer taste, which taught us how to use oppor- tunnies wimiu our reacn. "What made you take to our style of life, Katy?" asked Lizzie one evening, as we ail sat in the east window, watching the outcoming. ot the stars and telling girlish dreams. "Doeti tw mir Viild ' snQiranul Wotn stooping to replace the little boot she had thrown off to rest her foot. "But you might have been an authoress, or a painter, or a a bookkeeper, or " Lizzies Knowledge ol tnis world was rather limited; Katy broke in upon her "There, that will do. I was not born a genius, and 1 hate arithmetic1 "But yoa did not always have to work for a living, Katy," said May. " xou are a lady, I now! ' - Katv laughed a queer, short laugh. "Yes," she said, "and that's why I don't know how to get my living in any way but . this. So behold me a healtny and honest factory girl! - She arose, made a little bow and flourish with her small hand, and we all . laughed, although we had said nothing funny. "Milly," said she, "please light the lamp and get the magazines, while I hunt up my needie and threads. Ladies, I find myself tinder the necessity -of mending my gloves this evening. Oh! poverty," whefe is thy sting? In a shabby glove, I do believe, for nothing nurts me iiae tuai, umesa-it uu a ue- cavine boot. . ; . ' i ' Katv's irloves were a marvel to us. She never wore any but of good quality, and al ways of the same color a brownish, neutral tint, that harmonized with almost any dress but just now a new pair would seem to be the one thing needful, from tne appearance of the ones see brought out.k She sat and patiently mended the little rents, whil I read aloud, and when the had finished, the gloves looked almost new. The next day was Saturday, and we had a half holiday. Kaly and I went to make some trifling purchases, and on our way home stopped at a big boarding house to see one of the gins who was sick. When we came out Katy ran across the street to get a magazine from the news shop. and came hurrying up to overtake nie before I turned the corner.- She had the magazine oien. and one of her hands was ungloved; but it was not until we reached home that she found she had lost a glove. It was too late then to go and look for it. We went and pearched the next morning, but could not find it. Katv mourned for it "It was my only pair, girls," said she tra gically, "and it is loss that can not be re placed." What people call a "panic" had occured ir financial circles in the spring after Arthur Craig had lost his Katy, and almost without a day's warning he found himself a poor man. lie left his affairs in the hands of his creditors having satisfied himself that they could gather enough from the wreck to save themselves, and set hi f.tee to London. He had been educated for a physician, though fortune made a merchant of him. Learning from a friend that there wa-j an opening for a doctor in Fen wick, he came thither and began to practice. Dr. Sewell had gone off on a visit, leaving his patients in charge of the new doctor; so it came about that on that Saturday even ing he was on his way to visit Maggie Lloyd, the sick girl at the lodging-house, when, just after turning the comer near the news shop, he saw a brown glove lying on the pave ment. He was ahout to pass it by, but a man's instinct t picK up anything of value that seems to have no owner made him put it in his pocket. He f orgot all about it the next minute. But when he made his call and returned to his consulting rom, in taking a paper from his pocket the glove tell out, and he picked it up and looked at it with idle curi osity. It was old but well preserved. It had been mended often, but so neatly as to make him regard mending as one of the lost arts. It bad a strangely familiar look to him. Little and brown and shai ely, it lay on his knee bearing the very form of the hand that had worn it. And as he gazed at it there came to him the memory of an hour, many months past, when he had sat by Kuty'snde on the green sofa in the dining-room of "their house" (alas) and watched her put on a pair of brown gloves so much like this one. V.vcr since that never-to-be forgotten day the vision of his lost love, sitting there In the fading light, slowly drawing on her glove, her eyes tilling as they talked quarreled, we should say, perhaps -had gone with him as an abiuing memory other, until ne nau come to know each shade of the picture, the color of the dress, the ribbons at the throat and the) shaded plume in her hat. lie looked at the uttie giove a long time. He had thought it might belong to one of he factory girls, as he found it near the lodging house. But it did not look like a 'factor; hand's" glove. He would ask Mag gie Lloyd at any rate; so he put it carefully r i- . r i i i-i l.- l . : 1 1 , in nia pocaet uniu ue suuuiu uiukc uia taus the next morning. He had suffered the clove to become so as- ! sociated with the memory of the past that was sacreu to mm, mat ue leu nis cueeit burn and his hand tremble as he drew It forth to thow it to Maggie, who was sitting, in the comfort of convalescence, in an arm chair by the window, watching the hand some young doctor write the prescription for her benefit. "By the way, Miss Maggie, do you know whose glove this is?" Maggie knew at once. It was Miss Gardi ner's glove. "Miss Gardiners." The name made his heart beat again. "Is she one of the factory hands?" ''Yes. but she lodges with Mrs. Howell quite out of town, almost; ehe was here to see me yesterday. "Oh, I see'." eaid he, not the most reie- rantlv. "And can you tell me how to find Mrs. Howell's house? I suppose I could go by and restore this glove to it-i owner?" Maggie thought this unnecessary trouble, but she gave the required direction and he went out, Baying to'himself: "It cau'tbe Katy. of course; but this giove shall go back to its owner." t Mary and Lizzie went to Church that Sun day morning. Katy declared she couldn t go, having but one glove. I stayed at home with her and offered to keep Mrs. Howell's children for her, and so persuaded that wor thy woman to attend worship with the girls. And this is how it came about, tnat wnne we were having a frolic on the carpet with the children in Mrs. Howell's room we heard a ring at the dour, ami Bridget having taken herself off somewhere, there was no help for it but for one of us to answer the summons. "You go, Katy," whispered I, in dismay, I can not appear." Katv glanced serenely at her own frizzy head in the looking-glass. , gave a pull at her overskirt and a touch to her collar, and opened the door. Immediately afterward l was snockea to hear her utter a genuine feminine scream, and see her drop on the floor; and that man. a perfect stranger to me, gathered her up in his arms and began raving over ner in a manner that astonished me. He called her "his darling" and "his own Katy," and act mally kissed her. I was surprised at myself afterward that I hadn't ordered that gentleman out, but it never occurred to me at tne lime, ami wnen Katy "come to" and sat on the sofa and heard his speeches she seemed so well pleased that I left them and took the chil dren up to our room feeling bewildered all over. - What shall I say further? Only that Katy lives in a pretty house in the town known as Dr. Craig's residence, where we three ''factory girls" have a home whenever we want it. And there are no liquors found on the sideboard nor at her table. Onedav I heard Arthur say: "You were asillv child. Kate, to run away from me. I should have given up the point at last, I know." - "But there would have been the splendid cellar and the ten thousand a year," an swered she. It would have been such a temptation. We are safer as it is, my dear." Germany. From a letter in the Pall Mall Gazetted Extraordinary changes have taken place in the Fatherland within the last twenty years, and none is more apparent than the altered attitude and behavior of what we are pleased to call "the people." When I first visited Germany twenty years ago it was the fashion for old and young to "thou the domestic servants and work-peopie gen erallv. Now address a little lad playing in the gutter as "Du," and he would turn his back on you without reply. Formerly do mestic servants in Germany were ill-dressed, slipshod, oppressed beings, often worse lodged than , the cattle. The other day an Knglish lady staying in a German boarding house complained to the mistress that she was dis turbed by the cough of a housemaid whose bedroom was near to her own. "I am very sorry," was the reply, "but it is impossible for me to change my servant's rooms. They will not submit to be changed from place to place." This was in a provincial town, and the maids were rough peasant girls from the heart of the country. Formerly an unpleasant subservience was observed by the working classes toward the upper. Now we find that, while there is much more politeness than before among the working people themselves, no differ ence whatever is made in addressing, thofee in a superior social position. These things are on the surface only,' but 'they point to fundamental changes -f very great signifi cance, and while we find among working people more politeness exercied toward each other and a eelf-asaerting attitude toward roclal superiors, Increased Rlf-respect ttiflf! in the ereat attention now paid to personal appearance by even tl.a nnnrcQf lnf It imnrotsi hie for anv I'uwi v-j . ,.uu.u - - f - one who traveled there, whether north or south, east or west, twenty or even ten years . . . 1 1 a 1 1 A. ago, not to De sirucK Dy tne iraproveu out ward appearance of the people now seen.

Cervanter. (Blackwood's Magazine. I A lingular destiny has been that of Miguel de Cervantes. The same perveree and malignant fortune which pursued him all through his life, making him who was born the gavest of men, with the eweotef t of temper and the noblest heart, the most wretched and the worst afllictod crossing all bis tchomes, so that not one prospered to his own well-being batfled his active, stren uous, and fertile genius at every turn beat ing back his resoluto epirit at every step for ward, in arms or in letters interposing be tween him and hia ambition obstacles the strangest and least expected reducing him at last to a condition so miserable that we blush, not only for Spain, but for human nature, to think of it. This same blind and myitcrious fortune ba attended even the grfut book with which the name of Cer vantes is eternally associated.

All that Cervantes ever suffered in his own life "toil, envy, want, the patron, and the Jail" -is reflected in the career of his hook, the mirror and monument of his genius. The reverses, the indignities, the privations, the wrongs, which the author bore with so se rene a front from Christian and fnva Moor, have visited his "Don Quixote" in at least equal measure and in very simular kind. The book, like the man, has been plundered, tortured, reviled and abused, and persecuted, so that there seemod scarcely any inBult or Injury left for it to endure, j or more than two centuries and a-half it has been ex posed to all manner of ill-usage from native and from foreigner from publishers, com mentators, critics, plagiarists, and trans lators. It has been adapted to the "humor of the age" by many hands in many tongues. It has furnuhed plays without number at home and abroad. It has been the material of farces, pantomimes, and ballets. Some have made it a lampoon; others have exault ed it into an epic, on a Kne with thelliad" and the "Eneid." It has been expurgated. denounced, qusetioned, caricatured, subjected, to every kind of indignity which a book could suffer, except that ot not being read. Charles Snmner't Karly Lot. The love, by pre-eminece, of Charles Sufn ner's life was in his comparatively early days, for a woman who has beeu a happy wife and mother, and who is still living. Kelinquished on account of her preference for the gentleman whom she afterward mar ried, it assumed in his mind the only blame less form of a batlled attachment, that of sentiment, which differs from love only in the absence of, the appropriating element which is the distinguishing mark of the grand passion. He became the best friend of botli parties, and alter a lapse ot time re membered the experience without regret or pain, though I have somf times thought it made him doubtful of his own powers of pleasing. Three years before his death, after his marriage and - separation from another woman, I spoke to him in strong, commendation of certain - literary productions or his early love that had attracted but little attention from the general public. "Charm ing, charming," was the reply, with a soft ening of his face, a tender cadence in his voice and a dreamy look in his eyes that I never saw when any other subject or any other person was under discussion. I ob served during the evening' that followed this ?uiet conversation-, that, be only, aroused rom tlie pleasantly meditative mood into which my remark seemed to nave tnrown him to absent to everything I said. It was an agreeable experience, but it was not in toxicating, fori was calmly aware tnat tne remote but sure cause of all this bland ap proval was ojiother woman. I thought of the q'iaint exclamation- which Mrs. Oli poant puts into the mouth of sweet, con stant Margaret Maitland, after meeting the lover of her youth: "Among all the changef ulness of this unstable world, bow steldfast some things are!"
