Well, one night soon after we
arrived at Wizard's, I was at Re
ception at Senator Castlemaine's.
They had a beautiful house, and
heir large parlors were crowded
to overflowing. I had already some
gentlemen acqtvuntances, and was
talking to two or three, when sud
denly up came my cousin, Dick
Ferguson I don't think you ever
saw I)ick, but he is a splendid fel
low, and was- determined, he told
me before I came to the party, to
introduce crowds of people to me,
as it would be his last chance, for
he was gqiug to'start for California
the next' morning. I perceived now
that he was dragging forward a tall
and handsome man,, and compre-.
hended my fate.
" Such a nice fellow, Lulu!" he
whispered, and then aloud, w My

Then I began o: profess that I
never flirted, and really at the time
felt as i -if I never would ; again ;
while his earnest eyos were on me
they seemed somehow so to awaken
all my better feelings and make
me ashamed of any unworthy friv
olity. I felt more- anxious than I
had ever, been before to impress
this stranger favorably, and was do
ing my utmost to captivate him,
when up rushed Dick.
"Well, Lulu, I'm ofT!"
"What, so soon?"
" Yes, got lots of packing to do
to-night, and you know I start at
six to-morrow morning. Good-bye
Walter, to my escort. Good-bye
Lulu dear, don't flirt too much."
The good ' fellow squeezed my
hand so that he almost crushed it
and made it fairly ache, and then
hurried away off through the crowd.

kB fine eyes and his brilliant con

much pleasure to seeing him again.
He was at the Secretary's and quite
devoted to me. By this time 1 was
ashamed to ask him his name, and
no one oi whom 1 ventured to in-
quire knew it at all. This ovening
mamma was with me. I saw her
looking hard at me when I was
dancing with'lWalter, and I knew

to her. bo I took him up and bold

came to his name, covering my
omissions by saying instantly "A

explanation of him to papa after
he ,was gone. We walked up and
down together a long time. Every

lovery moment it grew more absurd
;to tell him that I did not know hia

said that he lived in New York, and
that he was welljestablished in bug.

for granted that Dick had told me
all about'him. 'llo left 'me at last
on the arrival ' of two gentlemen
who came especially to call hpon
'tnb.' V One of these wssV great so

as he bowed to Walter, and indeed
greeted him very politely, I 'was
delighted with the thought that at

Again for two nights at two of
the great balls of the season Wal
ter was aeyotea tome; men one
morning he met me on the Avenue,
and walked home with me. And
by this time he had been with me
so much that I was ashamed to ask
any one what his name was. I
liked him very much, and I thought
he admired me, only it was very
odd I could not find out any name
but Walter. Once I thought I had
it. I met him out at a reception,
ana he saia to me, .
' Did you get my card this morn

I could, I asked him :
4 Mr. Creel, who is that gentle
man you were just talking with ?
Which one, the thmall man or
the th'tout one ?
Neither; that tall one, talking
to the large woman in red.'
That? Oh, that ith Mithtcr

Oh, thank you, I do know him
but what did you say the namo was?
' Cothwoth. Ah, Mith Thmith,

talk with Angelique Smith.

ever. Cothwoth,' he called it ; that
would be Uoswos, perhaps, as he
lisped bo dreadfully, or even Cos
ross, for Creel was apt to confuse
the sounds of r and w. Evidently
I could not call him by any of theso
names. I could only console my
self by the reflection that I had at
least something satisfactory to tell
mama, who was beginning to be
very inquisitive about my admirer.
I suppose it was my habit of now
always calling him Walter to mv-
self that led to the final catastrophe
and the solution of the mystery.
One afternoon I was walking down
a cross street, when Walte, joined
me. ; ,We went on tozrother chat.

W JL J - - wau-
den there was a rush and a clatter,
and a runaway horse came plung
ing and tearing down the street;
ho was on the sidewalk, and seem,
cd to' be coming directly towards
us. I was terriby: frightened, as
you may imagine, and clung to my
companion's arm. , n : n
. 'Oh, Walter! Walter! I cried.
We shall be killed! ,, .
',JNo, no, Lulu, my darling ' and
suddenly seizing me in his arms, he
sprang with me. up the steps of tlie
house near which we were. ; There
was a deep porch,"and there he put
mo down, though btill keeping his
arm arouname. :
The horse had swept by a second
after we reached the shelter, but
Walter held me close, looking earn
estly into my eyes.
'Ly u, dearest, do you love me?'
ho said. .,
' Oh, Mr. I began, then I
faltered and stammered, ' I ought
not to have called you Walter.'
' Yes you ought, that and nothing
else, Lulu, I love you dearest!
Tell me, can I hope you lovo mo a
- I blushed desperately and half
whispered, 4 Yes, I do ;' and then,
when I thought he wenld kiss me
then and there, I hurried on, 'but
I have another reason for calling
you Walter. I don't know what
your other name is.'
He stared at me. Are you teas
ing me, Lulu ?'
'No, indeed. I do like you very
much ; you know I do Walter.'
'My darling!
' But I don't really know what
your namo is.
And then we walked away, and
I told him all about it. He was
very much amused ; but his name
tahard to remember; it is Cothroth,
and I don't wonder I could not catch
it at once. ! think papa and mama
werefrather horrified when they first
heard of my engagement, but the
unexceptionable position of Mr.
Cothroth satisfied them, and now
you understand that I am going to
marry my Warter,'who was so long
the man without a name.

A scholar of Dr. Bushby's went
into a parlor where the doctor had
lain down a fine bunch of grapes
for his own eating, took it up, and
said, aloud: ; u. (

Ihe doctor being but in tho next

and going into tho school, ordered
the boy who had eaten the grapes,
to bo taken tip, or, as it is called,
"horsed' on another boy's back, but
before he proceeded to usual dis

had done:

why these two should not be joined
