Romance of a Poor Yonng Girl.
A lady correspondent at Genter White
Creek, Washington County, sends us the
following romance of real life. It concerns
a native of Washington County.
She says :
Five years ago a poor and modest
country girl of twenty-one summers,
following the path of duty, enlisted in
the holy wars and sailed with a band of
brothers to a far-off heathen shore, leaving
behind her two rejected and likewise
miserable lovers ; one a lad of low condition,
the other a regular patiician.
But the heathen have souls to be saved,
and for four years, our self-sacrificing
heroine followed the noble calling she
had chosen. Eailyin May, 1881, our
fair toiler in the vineyard, deeming that
the heathens were sufficiently converted
to admit of a visit to her native shore,
resigned her charge for a period and
nail od, via England, former own homo
and harbor. An English nobleman who
chanced to be among the passengers became
interested in the poor American,
and ere the good ship anchored at Liverpool
had offered his hand, heart and fortune
and been accepted. At London
the lovers parted soon to meet again, to
receive a father's blessing and part no
move. The bride of the future continued
her journey alone with her trons&cau,
and was soon welcomed in New York by
n host of aliniring relatives and the forgotten
lovers. Preparations were commenced
for the reception of the n bio,
and the disappointed lover.s .sighed lor
the things which "might have been."
But alas! the noblomau met with a
financial misfortune. Ti udei ly did he
break the news to the distant fair one,
nobly releasing her from promises which
might become irksome. Tho humble
and faithful suitor (who chanced to be
nearebt), soon became dearest, and the
weary heait, t.tkjn on the rebound, surrendered
gracefully, and they wcro
umW in tin holy bond-! of matrimony,
at th' residence of the bride's parents.
The Cigarette-Consumed Young Man.
Like a midnight apparition which can
not be shaken oil', the
young man haunts me daily in
the streets and nightly in theaters and
saloons. His sallow countenance,
the signs of' approaching dissolution,
appears ever and anon between
the masses of d smoke which
arise and are wafted into the faces ol
healthy predestr.iins, causing sensations
of a sickly nature. The smile with
which he greets you is only an alleged
sinilo, and the hollow voico which utters
his equally hollow words grates on the
car and makes one think of the way a
skull might if skulls were gifted
with speech. His walk is a totter, his
breath savors of the charnel-house and
his eyes wear a pitiful, painful, idiotic
The eigart young man,
despite the perils surrounding him, is on
the increase. It is considered smart to
bo a cigarette-consumed youth. It is
deemed the height of manliness to waste
ambition and destroy vigor with smoke
and such smoke. Tho cigarette -consumed
young man thinks ho is attractive
and supposes that the small parcel ol
brains which lias escapod the influence ol
nicotine furnishes the world's thought
at least the superficial, unreal world in
which he moves. He thinks mother will
pet him all the mure, sister humor him
and all the girlb adore him because he id
The rising generation promises to be
largely composed of cigarette consumed
young men unless stringent measures arc
taken to counteract existing tendencies.
It were better that Mother Shipton had
been right or that tho sun hmry up and
reach the earth than that such a result
occur. It would bo vastly better foi
the young man to bo sun-consumed thai
young man is a bore and th
world is tired of seeing him around.
