Tin: three greens. Shortly , after the Crimean war, an individual whose right arm encased in splints and hung in a sling, entered a magnificent jewelry shop, the propiie tor of which was a Mr. James ' Green. The stranger had that in hi3 appearance which is generally styled distingue; his carriage and garb revealed the military veteran and his manners the finished gentleman. At the door halted an ele gant cabriolet, and the good taste of its owner was made apparent by the plain but noat livery of the groom and the choice trapping of the handsome blooded horse. Thu stranger stated that he was desi roua ut procuring a complete silver table service, rich, solid and elegant with but little ornamentation. Could Mr. Green prepare uch a one for him? The gold smith answered, of course, in the affirmative-sand showed several patterns to his visitor; who then described very minutely the stylo in which he wished the articles to bo made, ami asked" by what time they could be ready. At the same time, he insisted on punctuality, saying ho must use the set at a reception he would soon give at his new residence m Leicester square. Green promised to have it done iu three weeks, and then the two parties discussed the terms. '.The jeweler very carefully made all his calculations and demanded 1,200. The stranger thought a few moments then sfiid he had determined upon get ting a service at a cost of JC1,M)0, and reruchtcd Mr. Green to add as many a more pieces to the set as would fix the price at that .sum. Mr. Green thanked for his mark of conlid- r ence, and inquired of him to whose re commendation he owed his patronage. "No one has recommended you to me," replied the stranger. The jeweler looked up in surprise. The when I call for the service." I Mr. Green accented the proffer with prof use thanks. 'You need not thauk me." the officer interrupted. "As I remarked, I always have a way of my own, from which I never like to deviate. Now do me the favor to take my partmonnaie from my coat pocket; my unfortunate Balaklava wound'! the Colonel again winced with pain "has maimed my right hand and arm completely." Mr. Green expressed his sympathy in the warmest terms, carefully pulled the portmonnaie from the veteran's coat pocket, opened it at his desire, and from I four or five new notes took one. which - . the Colonel requested him to keep. Mr. Green wrote off a receipt and placed it in the old pjcketbook, which he care fully restored to its resting -place. He then assisted the Colonel to enter the carriage, and the groom Colonel Green could not drive on account of his injured arm rapidly drove off in the direction of Leicester square. The jeweler.thongh much overjoyed, was a cautious busi ness man, and notwithstanding the con siderable deposit, proceeded to make his safety certain. In the "War List," he readily found the name and rank of his customer, just as they had been given, and from the estate agent who rented out the splendid mansion in Leicester square, he had ascertained that it had recently been occupied by Colonel James Green, of the Guards, and that tho latter had brought most excellent reccommenda tions from his banker and sundry other distinguished personages. In the course of the three weeks, at the end of which the set was to be done the Colonel often came into the shop to see howiihe work was going on, and. al ways discoursed so affably with the goldsmith that the latter could not find sufficient words of praise for his genial customer when speaking to others about him. At last the service was completed. It was placpd upon a largo table in the counting room, and covered with a cloth of blue velvet. Punctual at the stipulated time in the afternoon, Colonel Green entered the shop, his elegant cabriolet with the blooded hor ses remaining before the door in care of the groom. The officer stepped into the counting room, and Mr. Green, swelling with pride, lemoved the velvet cloth from the service The Colonel, though usually a quiet man, declared that it sui passed his most sanguine expectations, and greatly insisted upor paying the entire 1,500, and also upon the jeweler re taining the deposit of 100 as a douceur for the satisfaction he had given. "You owe me no thanks, my dear Mr. Green," warmly said the Colonel to the delighted goldsmith. "Give me your hand and again receive my heartf ul ac knowledgement for this superb master piece." The jeweler's beaming counteauce,on grasping his namesake's hand, Can be give you," The groom took the letter, bowed and quickly drove off. Fifteen minutes, a half hour, nearly an hour passed away and Michael did not return. The Colonel waxed impa tient and wished that he had gone in person for the money. The jeweler essayed to tranquil ize him, but ineffect ually. I have always regarded the fellow as honest and trust worthy," said the Colo nel, "and hare on several occasions in trusted him with large sums of . money, though, it is true, never with as much as at this time. Fifteen hundred pounds have proved to stroncr a- temptation for m. - him,'' Pulling out his magnificent gold watch he continued: "I will wait just seven and one-half minutes longer, that is exactlv the time it takes to drive hither from Leicester hquare." The seven and a half minutes were cone and the crroom did not come. The Colonel could contain himself no long er. Do me the favor, Mr. Green, to call a cab," he said, in the greatest impa tience. "I shall go homo myself and will re turn within half an hour," The cab was soon at th j door. "Quick to Leicester square," cried the Colonel to the coachman. "A half crown extra if you will drive well. The cab drove on as rapidly aa the horses could go. Tho goldsmith mean time had the service packed up, and then waited for his patron's return. The clock struck 6. 7. 8. 9. The Colonel did not come, must have detained him; but the jew eler felt no anxiety, for had he not still the service and a deposit of one hundred pounds. Tired of waiting, at last he closed his shop, at half after 9. and went home His wife who had long been expecting him, had grown sleepy and was slum bering on a sofa. An open letter lay in her lap. Mr. Green stepped lightly to her, intending to awaken her with a kiss when his eyes fell upon the letter. "What is this?" he cried dnmbfound- ed, as he recognized his own hand writ ing and the letter which he had just written for the "Colonel. The reader can readily guess the se qual and the connection. True, there existed a Colonel Green who had served In India and the Crimea A Vonu'i Uttrt Within the past half doxen vears therm its grown up among sporting men and gentlemen of leisure strange fancy for imported or blue Wooded wttpr drm There are many of the Improved ' species m tue aenneia oi Wilmington gentlemen.

The animals are brought directly to this country generally to ew lork, In some cases to Philadelphia, and there purchased through agCBta by sportsmen. The prices paid, in many instances, are astonishingly large. ranging in a tew known instances as high as JBa.uuo ior a single setter. . One . th ous- ad dollars, however, is considered a high figure, the latter sum, it is said, harm been paid by a gentlemen in Philadelphia for a noble specimen of the bluest blood. The imported dogs have many points of superiority over the native animals, diff ering as much . from ', each .other as the trained racer from the country road horse. Blue blood if strong and fleet of hmb, has long, fine hair, with a tendency to creep at the ends, well colored, whatever that means, and is warranted to watch his game rain or shine, twice as long as the native specimen. There are at least half a dozen imported setters in the -possession of par ties n this city, each of which cost over $300. The best known man in the United States in this line is Rene" Martin, the dog trainer. Martin was formerly a butcher, but the instinct born within him was too strong, and he quickly drifted into his natural sphere. As a trainer of setter dogs, ranging from I00 to $200,are a little extraavgant, but the owner of the pup can rest assured that when he gradu ates from Martin's careful and painstaking hands he is accomplished in the highest degree. .Martin's plan is simple.

My patronage you owe to your parents, grandparents, and in fact to the whole line of your ancestors." The jeweler was amazed aud bewild ered. ' His parents and other ancestors had long beeu dead, and could not have referred the soldier to him. The latter apparently enjoyed Mr. Green's per plexity, and su'.iling continued. T will mol-ii mvHi'lf ilnrr Y1inn lh consequence of this unfortunate wound" here a sudden twingo in his arm made him start painfully "I was compelled to leave the service, I resolv tnl to settle in London.

To this simple reason you owe the present visit of Colonel James Green, of the Grenadier Guards." Tho jewele expressed his delight at the honor of loing a namesake of bo distinguished a warrior, and, after a few more phrases, of this sort, conversation reverted to the business in hand. "May 1 now inform you," said the . . jeweler, with some hesitation, "of the conditions which must be generally complied with previous to making a '-sale?" , No, " said the Colonel, sharply. 'I Lave my own way of doing I iiiseuess. You and I do not know each other, and although my order is not an uncom monly large one, yet it amounts to a sum which you cannot credit a stranger.

The speaker was a lady widely known in society and moves in the first social cir cles m New York; the scene was a Forty- nnn street reception: time, a few evenings ago, and the person addressed, a reporter. "You look astonished!'- half queried the society woman, "just as though you do not gl'47e me, and also look shocked at the mere suggestion of my smoking.

He took from the officer's breast coat pock et a card ease, a set of ivory tablets and a silk purse, through whose meshes glittered some five or six sovereigns but no pocketbook. Upon the Colonels request, he then examined all his pock ets. The search was futile. 'Strange! Incomprehensible! Could I-have lost it or been robbed?' muttered the Colonel audibly; perplexed and pro voked. "What o'clock is it?" he sud denly asked. "Twenty five minutes to five." "Good, it is time enc ugh. You must make yourself serviceable to me at ouoe more, my dear Mr. Green, and act as my right hand. Will you have the goodness to write a few lines for me to my wife. ' . With these words the Colonel stepped to the jeweler's desk, on which lay some writing paper, printed with the name of the firm. Taking a sheet he placed it before the jeweler, saying.

Who the sly rogues were never came to light. Mou day. The heather bloomed gaily along the roadside; the hum of the insects and the voices of birds filled the summer air. By the brook that merrily down the w mountain-side stood a young man, tap ping impatiently with his oane a tiny foot that peered out from beneath his checkered pante. Brushed carelessly love it! It makes me forget the cares and annoyances of life, and after a good dinner to retire to my room and indulge in a mc?, quiet, soothing smoke, which is a half sies ta, is httle short of an earthly paradise." The reporter was astonished. The fair speaker had spoken the truth. He had never dreamed that woman, apart from a class whose cheeks had forgotten the inher ited art of blushing, permittvd the Indian weed to pollute her coral lips. A few has tily put though well -worded questions, sufficed to set the daughter of Eve chatting and after the following faehiop : "One is not deemed chic in the eighties without one can smoke. It is an easily acquired and exceedingly comforting habit and I only echo the opinion of thousands of my sex when I say that the beauties of home are magnified tenfold by the discreet use of tobacco.

In the process of manufacture the silex and feldspar in their crude state are mbmitted to a red heat and then suddenly throw into cold water, the effect being to render them more easily pulverized. Having been ground very fine la water and the water evaporat ed the materials mentioned are dried and sifted. The kaolin is washed free from impurities. These materials, with feld- spair, sponge, plantina and flux in proper proportion for the enamel, are mixed with water and worked into masses resembling putty. ' This done the unbared porcelain masses are ready for the moulding room. The moulds are in two pieces and are made of brass, one-half of the teeth or sections being on either side. The color ing materials are first placed in the exact position and quantity required and the body of the tooth and the gum is inserted in lumps corresponding to the size of the teeth. The moulds are then closed and they are dried by a slow heat. When perfectly dry they are taken out and sent to the trimmer's rom. The trimmers remove imperfections and send them in trays of fire clay to the furnace, where, having remained for twenty auoutes,tbey are complete. ChAftlna- Gbblra. . , Tho boys up on . Walian's creek, Gecgia, have adopted a novel way to gobble up wild gobblers. When they take it into their head to make a raid A correspondent from San Francisco says an angel flsb, said to be the first one ever brought to that city, was caught with a hook and line by some Italian fishermen twenty miles outsiee the Farallon Islsnds, in very deep water, brought into the city and sold to an enterprising tobacco dealer on Montgomery street, where it was hung up in tho window to excite the wonder -ment of passers-by. This specitneu i about three andU half feet long, has a head as large as a man's, beneath which are a pair of wing-like fins, spteading out over two feet lrom tip to tip, from the lower extremity of the wings they are much more lice wings than fins an 1 the bedy tapers off to a small tail. The hacfc of the fish is a dark gray and brownish color, slightly mottled and studded with sharp thorn-like protuberances. The un der side of the fish presents a mo a curi ous appearance, being colored and shaped from the neck down the entire body like a human body. The thorax is rib-, marked and the abdomen Is singularly man-like and the resemblance to the hu man organizatioa is very remarkable.

A fish rose to the surface of the brook looked at the young man and went away tired. 'I will seek her," he said; but as ho turned to go a pair of gleaming arms were thrown around his neck and two rosy lips were puckered up for a kiss. "So you have come at last?" he said, looking at her fondly. -Yes," replied the girl. "Birdie Mc- Murtry never breaks a promise.
