Tbere wero tlireo maidens wlio loved a king They sat together beside tha sea. .One cried, "I love hint, and I would die If but for one day ho might lovo me!" The second whispered.^'And I would dio To gladden his life, or make him great." The third ono spoke not, hut gazed afiir With dream eyes, that were Bad as Fute. The king, he loved the first for a day, The second his life with fond lore blest And yet the woman who never spoke as the ono of the three who lo?ed him best. —The Galaxy. *'Good-Bye, Sweetheart!" A TALE IN THREE PARTS. Bx RHODA BOVOHTOX, AUTHOR OK "RKD A3 A ROSE IS SHE." ETC. CHAPTER XVII. WHAT TH E AUTHOR SAYS. "TheLord Of iiann 'Ud his lady fair In early yontn'unitcd wero, In early yuuth divided were." "Do not jou think that WJ are rath er like the Lord and Lady of Naur,, en "aged yesterday, to be separated the day after to-morrow It is Lenoie who says all this: she is strolling along beside her lover down ODe of the old streets of Morlaix, that the nuilignaut mania for smart new quays, broad, bright new thoroughfares, bus not ye.t swept away. They have been prying into tho dim interiors -, climbing unforbidden the dusty, beau tiful wrecks ot curven 6tairs, up and down which the stately nobles used to pace, in the gone centuries and where now only dirty gamin* roll *nd tumble, the clamp of jabots comes. bliS1« OJUJCiUb VV A 1 O ,he front make a?rilli*ut Boom Augurs, &c, &c, blankets and rug* Lo Mesurier does not answer, but he does not look particularly pleased. "Ycu know I have never yet seen your real face," continues she, clipping her hand through Lis arm. "i Lave the vaguest idea of what sort of features I am undertaking I shall be like the lady who wss so short signed tliat she said she never knew her husband by sight until they married ttrs append ago must come off before we meet again." She speaks phjfully, but in tho im perative mood which has ben habitual to her through life. Paul thinks the imperative mood very good in a man, but utterly inad missible in a woman. ''•Must it he answers, very short ly then, with a rather awkward at tempt to recover bis good-humor "Do not you know what the early Christians said ?—that shaving was a lie against one's own face, and an impious attempt to improve the works of the Creator Lenore thrusts out her fresh lips in a mutinous pout.. "I can quote, too did you ever hear this distich she says, sauci'y 'John P. Bobintoa, he Said thay did not know every thing down ID Judee.'" Paul looks grave. He has not read the "Bigelow Papers," and bo particu larly dislikes flippancy in a woman. Men may be allowed to be a little wick ed but all women -should bo religious They have emerged from the old street have left behind them the tall state fronted houses, nodding to each other over the way have left also the gables, the dormer-windows, the strange saint faces, deftly wrought in wood. They are sauntering slowly back to their ho tel through the more modern part of the town. Morlaix lies so prettily— viaduct, river, churches, peaked houses, all hobnobbing in the hollow between green hills. "What will you be doing this time three days hence asks Lenore pres ently, with a half-pensive smile, aban doning the obnoxious subject of beards "Undergoing, probably, a catechism at the hands of my people, as to your in four years he is carried of by an at merits and demerits," answers Paul, laughing. "What will they ask you first about me inquires she, with anxious curios ity. «HowcanItell?" most stress upon "They will, probably," begins Paul to promptly attend to first whether you are of a good family By-the-by, do not be angry with me for people will ask whether I am eood tossing her head away with a jerk. "Camo over with the Conqueror.'' "Really cries Paul, with an eager ness which shows that, whatever other weaknesses ho tnny be superior to, he is not above that of a siucere penchant toward pedigree. "How do I know cries Lcnore, ira patiently. "Who cares What does it matter Grandfathers do not make a man, or a woman either." "They are rather apt, however, to make a gentleman," answers Paul some what stiffly. "I alwajs tell everybody," continues she, with an arch-smile, "that we are lineally descended from the poet. I shall not mind being great-great groat granddaughter to 'Fair Daffodils.'" liAnd are you 1" asks her lover, re- signing himself to come down six cen turies in his expectations.

Lenore has furled her unbrella. do not think that my worst eucmy could accuse me of being in early youth," Paul says, with a smile. "About how old are you asks Le nore, peering up inquisitively at him "You are one of those baffling sort of people who might be any age, from, twenty-five to forty-five inclusive." "I am half-way between the two I am thirty.five." "You look mere, I think," says Le nore, with charming candor "I sup pose it is that honied beard," with a sort of swagger in her voice which is quito as much tho result of nervousness as of pride.

"One ought to bo superhumanly hand some to induee people to overlook it." "It is better than nothing," replies Paul, with a philosophic ii if lugubrious attempt to look at his beloved's minute portion from a cheerful point of view. "Four thousand pounds!" repeats Lenore, scornfully. "Not four thou sand pounds a year That would be all very weli but lour thousand pounds for the whole maintenance and sup port of a reasonable educated being, with a fine feeling for lace, and a just abhorrance of country boots and thread gloves!" "And gingham umbrellas I" supple ments Le Mesurier, laughing. "You must know that we are Hot all church-mice. However," says Lenore, presently," "for the family I must tell you that we have some rich people among us—my sister Sylvia, for in stance." "Your sister Sylvia" cries Paul, rather aghast. "I had no idea that you hai a sister Sylvia, or a sister any thing else, exoept Jemima. I suppose Thezia, and Tberese, and a few more, will transpire by-and-by." "Some years ago, she married," con tinues the girl, biographioally. "She is a pretty little cat, with eyes as big as tea-cups and he—well, he was oldine enough to be everybody's grandfather" (stretching out both arms comprehen sively). "He was as bald as my hand" (opening one pretty pink palm), "as fat us Falstaff, as ignorant as a carp, and he had made his money by that yellow grease that they put on railway wheels." "Good Heavens! how awful! Is he alive still asks Paul, nervously. "That is what I am coming to," continues she gravely.

"Is that the course you mean to pursue when I forbid you to da auy thing ?"ask3 Paul, in jest, but also most heartily in eaicest. "Undoubtedly," replies she, coolly, looking back at him with defiant gravi ty. "From the time I could walk alone I can safely say that I bavo nev er yet been forbidden to do any thin-. that I did not instantly straiu every nerve to do it." If Miss Merrick expects her lover to show either pleasure or amusement at this proof of her spirit, she is disap pointed. Ho only says "Oh and coughs rather dryly. "Parents and guardians, tutors and governors, forbid," continues Lenore, incisively "one doe3 not hear such an ugly, hectoring word mentioned be tween man and wife." "I havo an idea, however," retorts Paul, quietly, "that one can find such ugly, hectoring words as 'honor' and 'obey' in the Prayer-book. I will show you the plaeo, if you like." "One can not always take the Prayer-book au pied de la leltre," says Lenore lightly. "After all I dare bay I shall bo quite as likely to 'honor and obey' you as you to 'wor ship' me I" "I do not bnow that" (rising), "when you have that blue gown on, and a blue ribbon in your hair, and look meek, I am not fur off it uow." As ha speaks he takos her two hands in his, aud the look that for a moment makes the wise man half-brother to the idiot—that no doubt made even Solo mon liunselt seem but a foolish fellow among his seven huudred charmers— invades his usually shrewd eyes. "I had that identical blue gown on, the day that you so good-naturedly acted as Frederick's proxy," replies Lenore, demurely. "Lenore says Paul, neither heed ing nor hearing her allusion, loosing her hands, and clasping his own round her waist, "I have told you what I shall bo doiog when I am gone tell mo now whatyow will! I do not want you to promise to look at the moon, or sayhow your prayers, or drink your tea at the very same moment I do, or any such folly, but (with an impatient sigh) I— I suppose in these sort of cases we are all pretty much alike, and—do not laugh at me, I hate being laughed at— I should like to be able to say to my self at such-and euch an hour, Lenore is doing such-and-such a harmless tbipg if not, I shall be sure to imag that you are up to some mischief."

In Nevada there used to be current the story of an adventure of two of her nabobs, which may or may not have occurred. I give it for what it is worth Colonel Jim had seen somewhat of the world, and knew more or less of its ways but Colonel Jack was from the back settlements of the States, had led a life of arduous toil, and had never seen a city. These two, blessed with sudden wealth, projected a visit to New York —Co'onel John to see the 6ights, and Colonel Jim to guard bis unsopbistica tion from misfortune. Th'y reached S JD Francisco in the night, and sailed in the morning. Arriving in New4276 Y»rk, Colonel Jack said "I've heard tell of carriages all mywhich life, and now I mean to have a ride in one. I don't care what it costs. Come along." They stepped on the sidewalk and Colonel Jim culled a stylish barouche. But Colonel Jack said "No, sir! None of your cheap John turnouts for me. I'm here to have a good time, and money ain't any object. I mean to havo the nobbiest rig that's going. Now, here comes the very trick. Stop that yaller one with the pictures ou it. Don't you fret—I'll stand all the expense myself." So Colonel Jim stopped an empty o-nnibus and they got in. Said Colonel Jack "Ain't it gay though Oh no, I reckon not. Cushions, windows and pictures till you can't rest. What would the boys say if they cculi see us catting a swell like this in New York By George I wish they could see us." Then he put bis head out of the window, and shouted to the driver: "Say, Johnny, this suits me !—suits yours truly, you bet you I want this shebang all day. I'm on it, old man Let 'em out! Make 'em go. We'll make it all right to you, sonny The driver passed his hand through the strap holes and tapped for his fare —it was before the gongs come into common use. Colonel Jack took the hand and shook it cordially. He said: "You twig me, old pard All right between gents. Smell of that, and sec you like it." And he put a twenty dollar gold piece into the driver's hand. After a moment the driver said he could not make change. "Bother the change, Ride ont. Put it in your pocket" Then to Colonel Jim, with a sound ing slap on tho thigh: "Ain't it style, though Hanged it I don't hire this thing every day for a week." The omnibus stopped and a young lady got in. Colonel Jack stared for moment, then nudged Colonel Jim with his elbow. "Don't say a word," he whispered. "Let her ride, if she wants to. Gra cious, there's room enough." The young lady got out her port monnaie, and haDded the fare to Colo nel Jack. "What's this for?" he asked. "Give it to the driver, please." "Take back your money, madame, We can't allow it. You are welcome to ride here as long as you please, but tbe shebang is chartered we shan't let you pay a cent."

A I O A O O N O O I E S The New Y/ork Financier, a very able paper, commenting on the disposition man ifested by a portion of tho press to cry out "monopoly," whenever railroad inter ests are brought before legislative bodies, says "Monopolies or no monopolies, our rail roads are of incalculable service to the conu try. And do not believe in the assertion that the whole nation is under the heel of the railroad king. The indications of such a thing are not sufficiently clear to us, and, even it they were, it would not be difficult to point out a remedy. It would be easy so to surround tho railroad corporations with legislative restrictions that they could exert no pernicious influence. la this, as in every other matter, the prevention of abuses is in the hands of the people, and for any wrong which may be done they are chiefly responsible. It is true that the im mense wealth in the hands of the corpora tions enables them to execute schemes which would be otherwise impossible but are we grown so base that the materi al for incorruptible legislatures and an honest judiciary can no longer be found among us? The railroad monopolies art not yet so dangerous to the country as many would have us believe what they may become is another, and a very differ ent matter." —A gentleman in Elmira, N.
