State of Missouri, once Iwund to the
black idol of slavery, now taking the
lead in progress and politlc-il reform,
and its effects Trill soon be seen in Ar

Almost every day do we see emigrants

people so wide awake to a correct vie
of the principles which should rule the j

In answer to my last communica

It was a little studio, quite at the
top of the house. Upon the easel that
occupied the post of honor in the mid
dle of the room a large piece of can
vass glowed with the soft tints of a
spring landscape, and Frank Seymour
stood before it, palette in hand, his
large brown eyes dreamy with a sort
In a comfortable easy chair by the
door, sat a plump, rosy little female,
in a lace cap with plenty of narrow
white satin ribon fluttering from it,
and silver-grey poplin dress Mrs.
Seymour, in fact, our artist's mother,
who had just come up from the very
basement to see bow Frank was get
"Here, mother," said the young
man, with an enthusiastic sparkle in
his eyes, "just sec the way the sunset
light touches the topmo-t branches of
the old apple tree. I like the brown,
subdued gold of that tint; it somehow
reminds me of Grace Teller's hair."
Mr. Seymour moved a little un
easily ih her chain
"Yes, Its Very pretty; but it strikes
me, Frank, you are lately discovering
a good many similitudes between Miss
Teller and your pictures."
Frahk laughed good humoredlyi
"Well, mother, ehe is pretty."
"Yes, T don't deny that she's pretty
"Now, mother, what's the meaning
of that ambigtious tone?" demanded
the young artist, pleasantly. "What
have you discovered about Miss Grace
Teller that Isn't charming, and Worn
anly and lovely?"
"Frank, do you know who she Is?"
"Yes, I know that she's a remarkably
nrettv crirl. with a voice that sounds
exactly like the low, soft ripple of the
little rivulet where I used to play when
I was a boy."
"Nonesene," w.id Mrs. Seymour.
"Well, then, if you are not satisfied
with my description of her as ehe is,
would you like to know what ahe will
Mrs. Seymour looked puzzled.
"Mother, I think sho will one day
become my wife."
"Frank! Frank! are you crazy?"
"Not that I know of," said Mr. Sey
mour, composedly, squeezing a little
deep blue on his palette out of a dainty
tin tube, and mixing it thoughtfully.
"We know so little about her,"
thought Mrs. Seymour. "To be aure
aha'a vialtlne Mary Elton, and Mary
belong! to a very good family, if ahe'
does live in half .a house and take in
fine embroidery for a living. But
then she has no tyle at all, cmf arcl
f with Cynthia Parker, and Cynthi
always' fan clod nur Kranit. Then,
moreover, the ha five or six thousand
dollars of her own. Hut dear me! a
young man fn lore f the moat head
strong creature alive.'f
Mrs. Reyjnonr mused a while longer,
and then put on her mouse-colored
silk bonnet and gray shaw l and ct out
upon a tour of investigation.
"I'll find out something about Miss
Teller or I'll know the reason why,"
thought the Indefatigable widow.
Süss Oraco Teller was at home,
helping Mary Elton In an elaborate
piece of fine embroider. The room
where the two girl at was very plain,
carpeted with tho chcaiKt ingrain,
and curtained with very ordinary pink
hlojwometl pansics gave a delicate tint,
to this pretty picture of every-day life.
Mary KIton was pale, thin, and not
at all prettv; there wa.s tremulous
sweetness aliotit her month that ermed
to whixper that fehe might have leen
different under different circum
stances. Ornce Teller was a
blonde with largo blue eyes, rote
nkin, and hair whoso luminous gold
fell over her forehead like an aurole.
Am Mrs. Seymour entered, a dceter
bade of pink btole over (irace'aleauti-
ful cheek, but otherwise the was calm
and pelf-posseted, readily parried the
old lady's interrogatories.
"Very warm, this morning," fald
tho old lady, fanning herself. "Do
they have as warm weather where you
come from, Miss Teller?"
"I believe It Is very sultry in Fac
toryvllle," Faid (Jrnce, composedly
taking another needleful of white silk.
"Factoryville? Ts that your native
place? Perhaps then you know Mr.
Talker Cynthia Parker's father who
is Micrintendent in the great calico
"Very well I have often seen him."
"Are you acquainted with Cyn
thia?" "No I believe Miss Parker upends
mot of her time in this city."
"That's very true," Haid Mrs. Sey
mour, sagely: "Cynthia often ayn
tbere's no society worth having in
Factoryville only the girls that work
in the faetory; and Cynthia Is very
genteel, acquainted with Mr. Parker,
and not with his daughter?"
"Ilusiness brought mo in contact
frequently with the gentleman of
whom you speak, but I never hap
pened to meet Miss Parker."
Mr.-. Seymour gave little start in ;
her chair she was beginning to Fee
through t lie mystery.
"Perhaps you have something to do
with the calico factory?"
"I have," paid Grace, wiih dignity.
"A factory girl!" gasped Mrs. Sey
mour, growing "red and white.
"Is there any disgrace in tho title?"
quietly asked Grace, although her own
cheeks were died crimson.
"Disgrace? Oh, no certainly not;
there's no harm in earning one's living
in an honorable way," returned Mrs.
Seymour, absently. The fact wa.,hc
was thinking in her inmost mind,
"What will Frank say?" and antici
pating the flag of triumph she was
about waiving over him.
"I do not hesitate to confess," went
on Grace, looking Mrs. Seymour full
in the eyes, "that to the calico factory
I owe ray daily bread."
"Very laudable, I'm sure," said th
old lady, growing a little uneasy under
the clear blue gaze, "only there are
the steps and graduations in all society
you know, and I am a little surprised
to find you so intimate with Miss
Elton, w hose family is"
Mary came over to Grace's side, and
stooped to kiss her cheek.
"My dearest friend my most pre
cious companion," ehe murmured, I
should be -quire lobt without her, Mrs.
The old lady took her leave stiffly,
and did not ask Grace to return her
call, although she extended an invita
tion to Mary, couched In the politest
and most distant terms.
"Frank!" she ejaculated, never once
stopping to remove shawl or bonnet,
and bursting into her son'a studio like
an expres messenger of life and death
news, who do yoti suppose your para
gon of Miss Teller is?"
Tho loveliest of her sex," returned
Frank," briefly and comprehensively.
"A factorv girl!" screamed the old
lady, at the hight of her lungs, "a fac-
"Well, what of that?"
"What of that? rrank .Seymour,

have any thing to say to a common
"I should pronounce her a very ui-
, common factory girl," said the young
man, with aggravating coolness.
"Frank! don't Jest with me," pleaded
the poor little mother, with tears In
her eyes. "Tell me at once that you
will give up this fancy of a girl that is
no way equal to you."
"No ahe is In no respect my equal,"
returned r rank, witn reddening cneeic
! and sparkling eye, "but It is because

And then a torrent of tears came to
her relief, while Frank went otTquictly
touching up the warlet foliage of a
splendid old maple in the foreground
of his picture.
"So you aro determined to marry
me, Frank, in ppite of every thing?"

"Yes, but Frank"
"Well, but Grace?"
"Do you really love me?"
For answer, he took both the fair,
delicate little hands in his, and looked
uteiullly Into Iter eye.
"Frank," wild (Iraee, demurely; I'm

Mrs. Seymour was the first guest to
arrive at Mrs. Randall's aclect soiree
on tho first Wednesday evening In
July tho fact was, he wanted a
chance to confide her grief, to Mrs.
Randall's nyui pathetic ear.
"Crying? Yo, of course I havo been
crying, Mrs. Randall I've done noth
ing but cry for a week."
"Mercy upon u.s!"aid Mrs. Randall,
elevating her kid-gloved hands, what
Is tho matter? I hopo Frank Isn't in
any sort of trouble."
"My dear," said tho old lady, in a
mysterious w hisper, "Frank has been
entrapped inveigled into the most
dreadful entanglement. Did 3011 ever
faucy tliat he, themost fastidious and
particular of created Icings, could be
resolutely determined on marrying a
Mrs. Ilatidall uttered an exclamation
of horrified surprise, and at the same
moment a party of guests were an
nounced, among whom was Miss
Grace Teller, looking rather more
lovely than usual.
"Well," thought Mrs. Seymour, as
her hostess hurried away to welcome
the new-comers, "will wonders never
cease? Grace Teller at Mrs. Randall'
soiree! Rut I suppose its all on ac
count of Mary Klton'a uncle, the Judge.
Here comes Mr. Parker and Cynthia
dear me, what a curious mixture our
American society is; how they will be
allocked to meet Grace Teller."
Involuntarily she advanced a step
or two, to witness the meeting. Mrs.
Parker looked quite as much astonish ed
as she expected, but somehow It was
