urement. He bad fairly won tbe
ptize, but listen lo bis words:
"My friduds, 1 am a stranger
among you, and for mere »p<>rt,
I have tried my skill at jumping.
Tbe piine, which is adjudged to
be miue, I relinquish to bim who
has a prior claim. Lovely though
she be, yet ber affections onnnot
be enkindled by a stranger. Har
ry Carroll, the prixe is yours!"
80 saying be left the urenit.
while a louder shout than ever
lent the air The stranger re
turned te tbe inn, and the next
day punned hia journey.
Harry Carroll and Amabel were
made one in the village churob
the next morning. Toasts were
drank in honor of the stranger
who so generously surrended his
pries, and the newly.married pair
offered fervent prayers for his
future prosperity.
In the course of events, many
sons and daughters were born of
tbis happy wedlock, unlHirry
Carroll became distinguished in
revolutionary memory.
One evening, when Harry re
turned from a bard day's cam.
pnigu, and was resting beneath
the vine-clad piazza of bis benutt
ful country house, a stranger
drove up, of commanding appear
ance, aud inquired "if be could
lie eiitet ■ i.i.led there for tbe
uiglitr" Harry bad just stepped
into his summer-house in saaraß
of Amabel, whom he found trim
ming a rose tree. She had now
become dignified and matronly;
her beauty was of another type
from girlhood, still it waa none
the less captivating. She still
glowed with the r jse of health
upon heroheek, and with a queen
ly air presided over the domestic
hearth; ber heart, too, was open
to all generous impulses, and she
stepped forward and bade tbe
stranger welcome She then
quietly witbdrew, to superintend
ncr own repast, leaving Harry to
entertain the man of such pleas
ing exterior, who had become a
stranger guest.
Tbe meal waa soon made ready,
and Mra. Carroll presided st the
well-spread board She looked
at her guest and suddenly drop
ped ber fork; she looked again—
a shudder ran over ber frame—
she recognized Ibe aame man,
ibougb a little Beared by lime,
wbo was tbe sucoeaaful young'
leaper (bat won her aa bis price
and generously surrended his
claim. It was Oeorge Washing
ton.
The general started; he, too,
bad a faint remembrance of tbat
face, for onoe seen, it left an im
press. And how, when the mu
tual recognitions were made man- ,
tfent, they discoursed of what bad j
befallen eaoh in their journey,
may be imagined. The general,l
though courteous aud polite in ,
speech, uttered no regrets that be
did not avail himself of the prize
—for be bad found another, witb
out making a fatal leap. He was
proo fof her virtues, and in due
time Mrs Otnoll vi-ited Wash- :
ington, nud was tbere most hospi
tably received, aud a las ing bond
of friendship wss created, until ;
they were eepsrated in infirmity,
and dually death
We smile at Ihe record of leap

men of our age do away witb

THE PRIZE LEAP.
M. E. W.
Many years ago there lived in
one of the loueli<-*t villages a
maiden who«« iiuiki utnofi beauty
attracted to her snores of ad
mirers. The father of this fair
girl in his early tooth was diatin
guis'iod for his at 111 •<■ •*•>•. Us
wore uion his breast three medals
which were the pledges of his vie
torious achievements His daugh
ter was now a blushing Hebe of
18 years, besieged with lovers;
but the parental obedience which
he demanded lad ber to t'ejfer all
to hia ohoioe. Still, she had her
peculiar fsvorite in Harry Car
roll, who was the most accom
plished and intellectual youug
man in all the country. But tbe
old lather of the maiden, possess
ed of a perfect monomania upon
the subject of leaping,
tbe following aingular mode
of selecting a husband for his
daughter from her numerous pro
poaals, viz: he invited nil the de
clared suitors who had avowed
themselves lovers of Amabel to
mast at his house, and made to
them this announcement: 'Young
men," said be, "you have so lit it
ed my ohild eaoh of you to be
come your bride. She is commy
aad pare. She will pro»e as fair
a gam aa she appear*. I have
money to give her, but you see
I don't care about money, nor
talents, nor bo ik knowledge, nor
military renown, bnt I want her
to matry a man of skill and
strength I obtained the mother
of my child by jumping for her
A party of my own age were as
sembled and my father-in law
avowed that the one who could
leap the farthest should be the
winner of the prize My old wo
man, lads, was worth the effort.
I was the successful man, and tny
daughter shall be obtained only
hi this manner. Here is the green
-ward, and there is Amabel —the
one that jumps the farthest ou the
dead level shall win the prize "
Amabel clung closely to her father
and looked upon her array of
lovers with no unmeaning glance
Still her eyes rested ou one more
lovingly than tbe rest, and 'hat
waa Harry Carroll.
A crowd of spectators were
preaent lo witness the feats. Tbe
loom and tbe q liluug frame were
deserted, tbe children lift their
aporla, the old men forsook their
pipes, and gray-haired, spectacled
old dames forgot their apinniog
wheels in the excitement of th.:
hour. The avenue allotted for
the contest was a level space in
front of the village inn, diiectly
in sight of Amabel's bouse Ex
ercises of a similar kind were then
muoh in vogne in tbe Old Domin
ion, and the green waa often used
forsueh sports. The father of
Amabel now came forward' witb
bis blusbiog daughter, attended
by those patriarchal judges who
were to determine by actual meas
urement the precise length of each
The signal was now given, and
each young man in turn to ik hia
place in tbe arena.
"John Watkins," cries a by
etander appointed to anuounce
their names; "John Watkins, fil
teen feet two inches '
Watkins retired, somewhat
mortified et his ill success.
"Edward Keison, eighteen tm
one inch."
The merry shouts of applause
here commenced Many pro
phesied Edward had wou the
prize; Amabel, however, lo >k«d
pale and dissatisfied.
"James Haynes, nineteen lee
precisely."
Hnajai rent tbe air riverv
body loved James; everybody but
Amabel.
"Richard Bneh, twenty feel
two and one-baif inches."
Dick replaced bis coat very
noolli, as if not aware of tht
shouts wh eh made the air re
sound with acclamations of joy
"Henry Pette*, nineteen feet.
But he cared not to win tbe prize
Amabel etood unmoved Two
other young men refused to lent
for the prize, nnd Harry Carroll
waa the last upon tbe roll Hi
inarched into the arena with a
rirm step.
"Harry Carroll, twenty three
feet one mob," was announced
and he look the prize I
Amabel rushed into tbe arras of
ber devoted lover, lo whom al
others she gave the special pre
ference Congratulations wen
exchanged — "tbe hamlsomesl
couple in Old Virginia" was pass
ed around—"tbebest mutch in tin
country," cries the multitude—
when suddenly a youug man o
most prepossessing appeaiauc
presented himself as a candidal'
for the price. He had j Ist alight
ed at tbe village inn, and bearini
tbe shouts of victory, came for
waid and inquired of Amabel*
father if the ground was stil
open for competition. The ol
man having leisurely surveye
tbe strangers features, and look
ing at Amabel, who was restin
in Harry's fond embrace, nn
looked wildly and wotidermgl
011 the aoene. Harry wore
troubled oountenanoe, for he ss
tbe stranger wss athletio and wo
a loftly, manly, air.
