MISS BEFORE TEENS. DV 01LE3 M'aUIOOlM. Mamma will you plcatc lo fprcad A little sugar on my bread, And momma, deafest, if you please, To cut'a'Iittlo bit of cheese, Just a very littlo bit) I'm grown too largo now to be carried; To-morrow ma, may'nt I bo married! 'Come Helen,' said Mrs. Henderson to her daughter aged eleven, 'put up "your beads and trinkets, and prepare for bed, it's almost eight o'clock.' Tndeed, ma, I cannot, afford to do any such thing as go to bed so soon,' replied ' the young lady, 'I'm entirely too old to be talked to in such childish language, and be sides, Mr. Kingston is to be here, half past tight, there's his card in the rack now" Mrs. Henderson was dumb in astonish mcnt for a few moments after her woman ish daughter had done speaking and prompt ed by curiosity, she examined the card rack, and sure enough, the 'compliments of Mr, George Kingston' were there in old English letters on a beautiful embossed card. Mr. George Kingston, had just turn ed his thirteenth year, lie wore a stock, and flourished a silver headed cane. Mrs. Hen derson amused herself a short time with the little emblem of the children's precosity, when replacing it in the rack, -and seating herself by Miss Helen, she resumed the conversation, by saying "and so George Kingston is to be hero at half past eight o' clock, is her 'Yes ma, when he sent his card up this morning, tho message accompanying it was that he would be here at that hour.? 'And for what purpose?' 'Why, ma, to talk about everything like othenpeople do." 'What sort of every thing?' 'TVhy the balls, and tho theatre, Han nington's Dioramas, the Ravels, and Poh, child, hush, and bustle off to bed you are a pretty minx to talk of entertaining a beau, with balls and. nonsense, come, off with you.' "Minx, ma, what do you mean by that? Do you remember that I have been to a boarding school?' Yes, child, I remember that you've been to a dancing school, there's where you met with George Kingston I suppose.' Yes, ma, you know there's always a few moments leisure between the setts, and then the ladies and gentlemen promenade and talk about the weather and a thousand pretty things.' 'And what sort of pretty things do you and Geo. Kingston talk about?' 'George Kingston! Ma, it's Mr. Kings ton, he's as much right to be called Mr. as any body. He rattanncd Henry Cuthbert for slighting me in tho waltz, andItdjyV like to hearhmseisffffl'clson! anj IlfiUjlpose wc may expect a courtship soon!' Courtship, indeed! we are not so foolish as to waste time in a courtship, I can tell you madam and if you must know it, we have been engaged these two months.' This was a secret worth knowing, and Mrs. Henderson as soon as she received the information prompted by curiosity, deter mined to await the anivalof Mr. George Kingston, to see how these youthful lovers would demean themselves in her presence. In due time tho little hero was announced and after a few handsome flourishes of his silver topped cane, he seated himself and began to play the man. 'How do you like the manner in which Miss Fustian behaved, tho other evening, Miss Helen?' asked the infant wooer. -'At the ball 0 horrible, she's the most ill-behaved young lady in the world, and she's to be married in four weeks, did you know it, Mr. Kingston?' -1 heard it at the theatre last night you should have been there Miss Helen the play was excellent, and Miss Eustaco faint ed. You cannot conceive how interesting she looked.' Fainted! 0 my graciousl What made' hor faint, Mr. Kingston?' She was affected at Virginia's being stab bed by her father, Miss Helen.' "Well, I don't wonder at it, any thing at tho thoatro looks so natural, and she's a chicken hearted creaturd. Did vou ever ecc ono bo frightenod as she was at the di Tama?" "Sho was very much frightened Miss Helen and tore some of tho buttons off Mr. Wise's coat in clinging to him for sup- OFFICE OF THE DEMOCRAT, Next door to Cam:. D.

To be married in tho spring, and so young," Mr. Kingston! Why, ma says I shant these four' years." "She's a fortune, they say, Miss Helen, and Henry Howell's mother says he must strike while tho iron's hot.' "The young lady was courted years ago, Mr. Kingston, and her first love died she's beeh incluncholy ever since, and some say she's in a decline I wonder if its true?" "I don't know indeed but the Ravels, the Ravels, Miss Helen, they're going away next week, and we must see them before they leave us, when can you go Miss Helen?' "I can't tell, exactly, Mr? Kingston, may be Monday night, I'll ask ma, may be she'll go with us it will be so fine to have ma go with us. Will you go ma?" '.'What are you talking about child? asked the mother, lifting her eyes from a book which she was pretending to read, though in truth she had been a listener to all that had been said, and a' trial it was to her to preserve her gravity, during the very ani mated and interesting discussion. "Why," said Mr. George Kingston, "I have invited Miss Helen to go and see the Ravels again; and she requests that you will accompany us, madam will you be so kind?" "0 yes, ma, do, it will be so fine, you on ono side of Mr. Kingston, and I on tho other, 1 guess Miss Fustain, and -Miss St. Etistace would feel very flat, both their mothers forbid their "bcaus coming to their houses any more, and they arc obliged to meet away from home do ma, go with us will you?" Mrs. Henderson had been exceedingly amused at their friendly chit chat, and she could scarcely suppress a smile when she remembered that "they had been engaged thirf two months;" truly, thought she, they will make a lovely couple, he thirteen and she eleven, and they conversing with as much interest and freedom as if they both were twenty; she laid her book aside for a moment and sobcrlv exclamcd "Well I wonder what this world is coming to?" The little lot T3 were completely thrown off the track of tneir. tete-a-tete, for it was evident that the surprise of Helen's mother had risen from their conversation, and her movement had too much meaning in it for them to be mistaken. Miss Helen looked at her mother with a fearful frown, and Mr. George Kingston ermirged up his shoulders &, looked towards his hat. Discre tion on his pait, was doubtless the butter part of valor. For he that loves and runs away, May live to love another day. And after he had flourished his silver headed cane, and pulled his walcnlrp;llar" pocket, and adjusjw- -lcMiss Helen, after savins: he need not bo in a hurry, it was not late, and so on, seized up the only light in the room, to illumine the dark hall which Mr. Kingston, was ne cessarily obliged to pass through to reach the street door, and a Way they walked, leaving Mrs. Henderson in total darkness, where she waited until she was tired, for the return of Miss Helen, with the light and then followed to the door to ascertain what the loving couple were about, and they being thoroughly absorbed in the ecstacy of affection did not d iscovcr that she was look ing at them, until she had seen Mr. Kings ton kiss Helen several times his arms wero about her neck, and she was re.-lining very affectionately upon his shoulders, when the eyes of tho young swain chanced to raise upwards and encountered the gaze of the astonished mother.
