If vou lire in Downshire and do not
know the f f iendeUs of f f iendell Court,
yon are unknown indeed; the cirenm
stanoe of their name being spelt with
two little fa,; andJproiioaBtMTiVBdall,
stamps it' with a peculiar aristocracy.
Radicals, indeed persons who interest
themselves in roots assert that there
was at one time no such thing as a cap
ital in 00 r alphabet, and that it was in
dicated by the duplication of the small
letters. As intelligence increased, cap
itals were inrented," and the lsjst per
sons to use ' them were, tA course, the
most illiterate; so that the retention of
the two small fs is not intellectually
speaking a feather in the f f iendell
cap. On the other hand, as a token of
uquity. it is inYaluabte. The pos
session of a name that nobody can pro
nounce without instruction u also ob
viously a great inheritance, and in this
it was tu more Tamable, sinoe
there is no reoord of a f f iendell of
Downshire having been distinguished
in any other way. Abe family bad

that an old tree is said to flourish, and.

! Her father was a nop merchant, and
no doubt given to speculation in his
own line, bat strongly opposed to con
tingencies , in connection with his
daughter's settlement in life. " He had
at first refused to take Peroival's great
expectations into consideration at aQ;
but when this invitation eame from the
old Baronet he had visibly thawed, and
even held oat a hope that be might not
now insist upon seeing Peroival's ledger
setting forth that be had received in
fees, eta. At least 600 - a year, before
he would give consent to hU daughter's
marriage. - ;:.?;.
Te the young man himself, thjs re
laxation of Mr. blake's proviso gave
mnoh less satisfaction thanj that gjmtleJ
man had anticipated.' In his own mind'
he was persuaded that the match: would
be disagreeable to Sir Geoffrey and
render his expectations even less prom
ising than before; and thin was one of
the reasons that made, him . deojine to
be very dutiful to his venerable cousin
at a distance, and through the medium
of the Poet-offioe. : I He did not like the

Imaginary, or as a very serious physical
ailment he had inherited a strong in
disposition to be bored or troubled.
Old Mir OwOfiray himself, wish ItU atsX),
000 ft pit and an bedisnt tounty, did
not dislike being "put out" more than
he did, and when he was annoyed he
took as little pains as his great kinsman
to conceal it. Such men are, socially
speaking, the very salt of the earth,
who among a world of snobs and todies
speak the plain truth to its little tyrants,
even if they do not succeed in teaching
them how to behave themselves. But
Percival had no sense of BDOStleshiD
whatever. He simply liked his own
way as much as his betters did, and
since his ambition was limited almost
as often got it; a man who did not walk,
and look and speak as if the street be
longed to him, but rather as if he did
not care one halfpenny (which was the
case) to whom it did belong. More
over, his father had been no " tenth
transmitter of a foolish race," and this
young lellow was as intelligent as he
looked. He knew himself it is only
fools, notwithstanding what philoso
phers have said to the contrary, who do
not and was well aware that lie would
not make a favorable impression upon
the owner of Fendall Court, and that
was another reason why he was unwill
ing to go there.

pleaded Mary, to whom he had shown
the note, with some strong expressions
of indignation. She was a beautiful
srsartuce, avitii'eyes like a gazelle, and
a voice more persuasive to his ear than
any in the law courts.
But be writes so disagreeably, said
Percival, pulling at his mustache; he
must be a most offensive person."
Recollect, my darling, that he is an
old man,' argued Mary, meaning that
allowance, as well as reverence, was
due to gray hairs.
He is not so old as all thai," mused
Percival. . "This sort of thing may go

that good behavior in Sir Geoffrey's

behavior was unexceptionable. On tbe

infamous. .".'"-
On the previous evening there had
been . a large dinner party, composed
chiefly of the rosgnstea. f the, county,
who hadtreate-4fce-?w

With a civility that had sufficiently in
dicated their opinion of his prospects;
and the young ladies had been at least
as gracious as their fathers and moth
ers. ! " PerdvaL did yon notice that girl in
blue, last nightP inquired Sir Geof
frey, snipping off the end of his after
breakfast cigar and proceeding to light
it: "Amelia Elton, Lord Wrax all's
daughter; it is my intention that you
shall marry her."
Percival lifted his eyebrows. "It
can't be done. Sir Geoffrey" here he
also lit his cigar, with great delibera
tion" that is if I continue to live in
England. We should have to go to
Salt Lake City, where bigamy is per
missible." What the deuoe do vou mean. sirF"
exclaimed the Baronet. ' Have you a
wife already f
;" No,' Sir Geoffrey." Percival could
not help wondering to himself what
would have happened had he answered
"Tea." Woojd his cousin have had
an apoplectic filhe looked very near
it jas it was) and gone off the hooks at
onoe, leaving everybody happy ever
afterward t or would he have sent for
his lawyer and devised everything he
had to the County Lunatic Asylum on
Urn spotr rercival bad felt that this
1 crucial matter must crop up sooner or
) I later, and" had nerved himself for the
encounter: ' I have no wife," he went
bo, " but what is the same thing. Sir
Geoffrey, so far as my future is con
cerned, I am engaged to be married.
r n nat, to uia UDp-uiwer a uauga-
terf" thundered the old man, who, it
seemed, had been making keener in
quiries into Percival m affairs than he
had any idea of.
I Well, sir, her father is a hop-tner-csnf,"
returned the young man, cool
iji ' and I dare say has made some
pretty pickings; but I don't think he
would like to lie called a hoo-vicker. I
may, perhaps, be allowed to add that
our oat 01 us term is not very pouts
a ana."
His face was very white, and looked
all the whiter by comparison with his
companion's, which was scarlet. They
were both in a frightful rage,' the one
at a white heat, the other boiling, -
And ' who the deuoe are youT' ex
claimed .Sir Geoffrey, in precisely the
same tone (though he too such an aris
tocrat) as the butcher's boy used who,
having run the leg of his wooden tray
into the Duke's eye, inquired of him:
Who . the deuoe as was that he should
be so parti ;ular about his eyesightP.
"My name is Percival Fendall, sir.
A man that .boasts better blood than
you. inasmuch as he can count a gen
eration beyond yon.'; This reply, in
tended to be satirical, was an inspira
tion, and had Quite the contrary effect
to what he had expected.- He had ac
cidentally protected himself as it were
by . this . interposition of. the other's
fetish, as though it had been a shield.
By 'Jbve, that's true," said Sir
Geoffrey," regarding him with undis
guised admiration. " You're the elev
enth of us. though not quite in the di
rect line. I am glad you appreciate
the circumstance at its full value..- I
had been told by a mischievous fellow
that you had been thinking of spelling
uui name with n capital F? : - " -
-That would be blasphemy indeed,
said Percival, without moving a muscle.
-'Of course it would," put in the
Baronet eagerly. " I perceive that my
informant was a liar. You are worthy
of your name, and you were only jok
ingthough let me observe that I don't
like such jokes when you talked of be
ing engaged to Miss Lake." .
Blake, sir, is her name," continued
Percival, with unruffled calm; " it is a
very decent one, though she doesn't
spell it with two little b's. She is a
delicate-minded, honorable gentle
woman, and 1 mean to marry her."
What, without my consent?" . .
" No, Sir Geoffrey. I hope with your
consent. You have only to see her.and
I venture to think vou will confess that
Miss the young lady in blue, whom
yon were so good aa to recommend to
me cannot hold a candle to her."
"But her blood, sirP You, of all
men, should understand the import
ance, the necessity, the indispensa-
bility " The Baronet supplied in
expression and gesture what was want
ing to him in words.
"I do, Sir Geoffrey. Science has
lately corroborated your opinion upon
that point. To persons about to marry
it recommends the microscope. Mary's
blood shall be subjected to investiga
tion." What nonsense you talk! As if it
could possibly be blood like ours! ' Be
ware now you trifle or rather how you
venture beyond trifling with persons
of this class. A blot on the 'scutcheon,
remember, is ineradicable.
If a Fendall were to break his word.
Sir Geoffrey, would not that be a blot
on the 'scutcheon"
It was cruel of Percival to place his
kinsman on the horns of such a dilem
ma. . But there is no fetish so utterly
illogical and, to say truth, so selfish
a)4 egotistical sat thetf blood. V N
'The promise was extracted from
you by passion," answered the old man,
"and is therefore invalid." Then, as
If aware of the monstrosity of this posi
tion, he went hvTiedy on as after one
has skimmed ottjr Lfeft ice to paint the
horrors of an nneqwnarriage.- " Look
at young Lascello? if he had married
as his uncle wished him, he might have
stood for the county; a man whose an
cestry is only second to 'our own. but
who chose to throw himself away upon
a female- nobody; respectable, I dare
say, she may beher father lives in
Baker street,? and is 'of the name of
Jones, i What was tbe result of it allP
Why, young Lasoelles -was compelled
to walk the hospitals.''. A
t If he had been made to walk the
plank', it is impossible that Sir Geoffrey
oould have spoken of the fact with more
sincere compassion for the young man's
unhappy fate. . . .
: "I know Lasoelles," said ' Percival,
cheerfully; " he lives close to - the
Blakes."
I " Very likely," pat in Sir Geoffrey,
dryly.
"And has already acquired a good
practice," continued: the young man.
" He told me he is much happier than
when-he was subjected to his uncle's
whims and caprices."
: This was a home thrust. Sir Geof
frey seized the bell-rope to summon the
footman to show his kinsman to the
door, but, by the time the menial en
tered, his master's passion had cooled
down. - He only, said: "Makeup the
fire." The fact was, that the no
tion of that extra generation which Per
cival had boasted of had seized on what
the old Baronet "called his mind," and
placed the young- man in a position of
positive superiority.
, " Look here, Percival, he said.
" Just to oblige you I'll see this young
woman, and if I'm dissatisfied with her
you must promise me to break off your
engagement"
"It is impossible that you should be
dissatisfied with her," said Percival,
gallantly, but evasively. ,
tThe old gentleman had' got an idea
rather an unusual event with the Fen
dalls and henee it was tbe more to be
regretted that it was unworthy of them.
If he found this Mary Blake so hon
orable and delicate-minded" as Perci
val had described, he might work upon
her feelings by representing that she
was ruining the young man's prospects;
if, on the other hand, she was merce
nary, he might buy her off.
Accordingly, in due course Sir
Geoffrey came up to London, and an
interview was arranged between him
self and Mary, after which Percival re
ceived the following letter: -
"MtDxab Cousin: Love has not blind
ed you, for I grant that the young per
son is very, good-looking, but it has
dulled your sense of hearing. . Miss B.
drops her hs one h I can swear to; it
was, in "hospital.',' This is not her
fault, of course, but her misfortune. It
is in the blood. If you marry her
being what she is, and can't help being
joa shall never have one acre of the
f f iendell land, nor one shilling Of the
f f iendell money. Yours faithfully,
o.-if."
The old Baronet would , not have
dared to write this but that he had, as
he flattered himself, won over -poor
Mary to his side. He had painted to
her the splendid prospects that awaited
Percival, but which her marriage with
him would dissipate forever; and had
appealed to her love itself to discard
her lever. . v V""?--!
He did not effect what he had hoped,
but yet succeeded only too welL . The
thought that she would be the cause of
hef Percival's future being destroyed,
preyed on her mind and produced a
dangerous illness. " Percival was heart
broken, and had only just spirit enough
left to direct an envelope to Sir Geoffrey,
indloslsg a piece of his mind. It was
an ugly fragment, and thus concluded:
. "IS through your Infernal egotism
my Mary dies, I will take but letters
F stent and change the idiotic name of
f iendell to Bullock-Smithy." v
. Sir Geoffrey was reduoed to despair
by this frightful menace. -
In the meantime poor Mary, got
weaker and weaker, and had hemor
rhage from the lungs, or more prob
ably the heart. The blood of the
Blakes, though an inferior fluid, was
necessary to her existence, and she was
rapidly sinking. . Dr. Lasoelles, who
was called in - in consultation, - said,
" There is only one thing that can save
this young lady's life. We must try
transfusion." -
" The other doctor who was of the old
school shook his head as only doctors
MB. vJ 1' l-.t
" Dr. Lasoelles understood at once,
from the great significance of the ges
ture, that he had never so much as
heard of the operation.
" I felt sure you would agree with
me," he said, with the sweet smile that
had won his way to professional suo
ces for his practice' lay chiefly among
the ladies. " You remember Playfair's
directions, - without doubt P" ' And he
told him what they were. " One of us
two must sustain this ebbing life." '
," I think it had better be you," re
turned the .other, hastily. "There's
nothing like new blood I mean young
blood." . . .:
"True; I am young and strong; I
can't see a beautiful creature like this
slipping through our hands." And he
bared his arm to the ether's lancet. ...
Two months afterward Sir Geoffrey
received the following letter from Per
cival, written under compulsion of his
wife's dictation: -
-Dear Cousisr: Actuated by feelings
of passion, which, as yourself once just
ly remarked, renders one's actions In
valid, I addressed you a communication
some time ago, the terms of which I
sincerely regret. When the blood of
the f f iendeUs is up they are apt to ex
press themselves strongly; and you are
the last man (except me) not to make
allowances for the fact. 1 am wank
ful to say my dearest Mary has beenl
raised from her bed of sickness, and is
now I had almost written 'herself
again;' but though she is as well as
ever, this is not the case. .1 She has in a
very singular, though perfectly scien
tific, manner become somebody else.
She has undergone the operation of
transfusion at the hands or rather the
arm of Cavendish Lasoelles, whose
noble blood, to use the words of the
poet, now ' courses through her veins.'
One has so often heard of persons who
are ready to shed the last drop of their
blood for this or that, and so seldom
seen them shed even the first drop, that
you may have put them down in the
same category with ghosts; but I saw
this with my own eyes for Percival
had been present at the operation, and
can swear to it. - 1 owe a debt to Las
oelles which I can never repay,' for he
brought back to life the dear girl I mar
ried yesterday. Both she and I are
well convinced that our union will have
your approbation, since the sole obieo-
Uutryujj Jtad-tgLi has been remved-t-
by transfusion. r. . -
Bv birth, it is true, she is still -a
Blake, bat by blood, she is a Lasoelles.
. With our united kind regards, I am
yours truly, PxRcrvAL r w ibndxxl."'
i Poor Sir Geoffrey, thus confronted
hot only with a dilemma, but an anoma
ly, was at his wit's end which was at
do great distance. . -..i-- .,
: In this extremity he consulted 'his
oracle; -artancient nurse,- who had dwelt
in the household almost for: that term
of years scouted by Mr. Thomas, and
who believed in the f f iendeUs first and

this female sage. as it's no use crying

;The bride, less from interested' mo
tives than from the sense that the old
man had so much to "get over" in his
welcome to her, devoted herself to her
host and soon surpassed her husband in
Sir Geoffrey's favor.
"You are not only, a f f iendell by
name, my dear," he once said to her,
" but, thanks to science, have become
worthy of the race by nature. You
were always very nice in your way
but there were points before that for
tunate operation But, there," he
added, patting her little hand, "we
will not speak of them now."
" You mean I used to say ; oapital'

ing her beautiful head," like the rose
immortalized by Cowper. " But I was
always taught to do that, and also to
say - unable" for 'humble.' "
" My dear." he said quite gravely,
"you used to drop all your hs dread
fully." (She spoke as purely as Lindley
Murray.) " But transfusion has pioked
them up for you. Depend upon it there
is nothing like blood."
Mrs. Percival Fendall was a woman,
but she knew when not to have tbe last
word. .---

One of the frequent minor romances

the other day. The Chronicle of that

"'Can you write your nameP said
Mr. James T. Hull, the extensive coal
burner, out on the Tennessee Park road,
to one of his workmen to whom he was
about to pay a month's wages. The
workman was noticed to twitch nervous

he ' might after a fashion.'
" Put it there;' I always take re

where Xhe workman was .to try and
write his name. - .... .
The man took the pen, and after
scanning the receipt with a business air,
dashed off the name of Daniel F. - Hull.
The coal-burner looked first at the
plain, bold signature, and then into the
face of the signer. There was a twinkle
in the laborer's eye- that told of the
long-suppressed recognition. " The two

The "FraB4w Issue.
. What is called. the "fraud issue"
raises the question whether: the Ameri
can people are more disposed to w eon
done" one alleged irime than another.
The fraud issue is an assumption that
Mr. Tilden was honestly elected Presi
dent by a constitutional majority, and
was then dishonestly counted ont by a
Returning Board,, whose- action - was
dishonestly affirmed by the Electoral
Commission, and ratified by Congress.
The simple facts are these, in regard to
Louisiana, where the chief fraud is al
leged. The practice of terrorizing the
colored vote in certain parishes of
Louisiana had become so universal that -a
law was passed authorizing the Re
taining Board, to throw out the vote of
any precinct in, which the Board was
satisfied that the vote had been unfair,
either through fraud or intimidation.
In the election of 1876 the one notorious
fact in Louisiana was the "build ozin g of
the colored voters in certain parishes.
Of which the Cincinnati Commercial es-
pecially contained the most ample and
conclusive evidence., ine vote as re
corded at the polls was a notoriously
dishonest vote, as much so as that re
corded by Tweed in New. York in the
election of 1868. The Republican Re
turning Board threw out the vote of
severalparishes, so that the Republican
Presidential Electors were left with a
majority. There was immense exciter
ment throughout ' the' country. ' The
Democrats insisted that the bulldosed
results Ought to, be received as final.'
The Republicans retorted that the law
authorizing the revision -was designed,
to defeat bulldozing. . ; On both sides .
there Were suspicious circumstances."
Nothing was clearer than that the vote
as returned to the Board was not the'
honest vote. - Bat it was doubtful, also,'
whether the action of the Board was
honest. ' The 'result of "the National,
election depended, upon it, yet neither '
the Constitution nor the laws provided,
an unchallenged remedy. In this situ
ation" Congress created the Electoral.
CommisstoniThe Commission decided
0 Abide by the general principle that1
the State certificate must be regarded
as final, and Congress ratified the deci
sion, ..amid, general ; satisfaction and ,
felief.., , : -"r .',,'?..." . .- )
' This is the ground upon which the
fraud issue is raised by the Democrats.
But the difficulty in their ease is two-:
fold. -In the-first -place, the presomp-s
Hon is always against them in such a
question; and in the. second place, the '
Democratic fraud ar.d violence in Lou- 1
